Republican leaders and Trump loyalists on Capitol Hill rally behind the former president after indictment 
The news of the indictment broke just hours after lawmakers on Capitol Hill departed for a two-week Easter recess. The halls of the Capitol were quiet. On social media, Republicans were much louder. It was only a matter of minutes after news of the indictment broke before some of his fiercest defenders on Capitol Hill rushed to his defense. “Outrageous,” House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan tweeted. “BREAKING: Trump has been indicted! This is another political witch hunt targeting the people’s President,” Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert tweeted.

What the debate around the U.S. Department of Education could mean for District 51 
How would Mesa County Valley School District 51 be impacted if it lost access to U.S. Department of Education funding? The county’s U.S. House representative, Lauren Boebert (R-Silt), last Friday made the argument that the Department of Education should be abolished during a debate about H.R. 5 (118), the Parents Bill of Rights that would codify federal education law to give parents access to school curricula, library books and other teaching materials. That bill passed the House 213-208 but is expected have a difficult time passing the Democratic-majority Senate. However, Boebert passionately supported an amendment proposed by Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Kentucky) that would eliminate the department entirely.
Lauren Boebert-backed amendments on transgender school policies easily pass the House 
The House of Representatives adopted two amendments on voice votes Thursday that would require schools to notify parents if biological male students who identify as women are permitted to use bathroom facilities or participate in athletics based on their gender identity. The two amendments to HR 5, the Parents Bill of Rights, were sponsored by conservative firebrand Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) and were adopted by a voice vote during the floor debate on the legislation. The Parents Bill of Rights, which was sponsored by Rep. Julia Letlow (R-LA), would require all public school districts to disclose their curriculum materials to parents, mandate parental consent for participation in student surveys, and prohibit schools from selling student information “for commercial or financial gain.”

Lauren Boebert snarls “we’re not a democracy so quit with that!” in response to calls for gun laws 
Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) lashed out at a gay leader of a teachers union for saying that the U.S. is a democracy. “And, you know, maybe one of the things that we need to address with the Democrat party is, you played a clip from the teachers union with Randi there talking,” Boebert said, referring to out American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten. “Maybe one thing we need to address is we’re not a democracy! So quit with that!” She was referring to a clip where Weingarten said: “How many lives will be shattered before we have the courage to do what Scotland did, what Australia did, what New Zealand did, what other great democracies do? We must solve this epidemic, and that’s up to us.”

Wee the people: Republican Boebert presses DC witness on public urination 
In bizarre scenes in a US House hearing, the far-right Republican Lauren Boebert asked if a revised Washington DC criminal code was now law – only to be reminded that Congress overturned it earlier this month – then fixated on whether that code would have decriminalised public urination. The revision was meant to give the District of Columbia a first code update in 120 years, but it became subject to fierce debate over crime as a political issue. Republicans said the code was soft on violent offenses. Angering progressives, Joe Biden said he would not veto a Republican measure to overturn the code.

Colorado GOP is laying the groundwork to challenge the state’s open primary law 
According to the letter, the committee chairman, Williams, would establish the fund and appoint a governing board with “final authority” over spending the money. “The Fund plans to accept unlimited amounts from individuals, political committees, corporations, and labor organizations,” the letter states, and would only be used for the lawsuit. The move is not surprising. Williams talked about closing the GOP primary as he campaigned for the state party chair job. “We must work to close the primaries so that only Republicans choose our Republican nominees,” he said. “We cannot afford to let Democrats become unaffiliated so that they then can meddle in our primaries, like they did with (Rep.) Lauren Boebert. We must defend and protect our caucus assembly.”

Lauren Boebert Floats Adding Human Babies to Endangered Species List 
Republican Representative Lauren Boebert flashed photos of baby fetuses during a House hearing Thursday on endangered species. The Colorado congresswoman showed the images as the Subcommittee on Water, Wildlife and Fisheries discussed potential improvements to the Endangered Species Act (ESA) in relation to its 50th anniversary. The hearing focused on de-listing the grey wolf and the grizzly bear. Boebert, a staunch foe of abortion, was selected to serve on the subcommittee as part of the current Congress. She has either sponsored or co-sponsored multiple abortion-related bills since December.

Freedom Caucus seizes center stage 
Flanked by half a dozen right-wing Republicans, Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) extended an invitation to President Biden: Attend Wednesday night’s meeting of the House Freedom Caucus to begin budget talks with Capitol Hill’s true power brokers. Why it matters: The absence of negotiations between Biden and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) — not to mention wall-to-wall media coverage of the potential Trump indictment — has obscured the dangerous trajectory of the ongoing debt-ceiling crisis. The Freedom Caucus, which Boebert dubbed “the only caucus who has released a plan to address this situation,” is stepping into the vacuum — flexing the same muscle it used to extract concessions from McCarthy during the speaker’s election.
Boebert changes stance on congressional earmarks 
Despite long being vehemently opposed to congressional earmarks, U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert is accepting requests for them. Over the past two years, Boebert has called such earmarks “corrupt” and “a waste of taxpayer money,” and something only “swamp creature” career politicians would request. Regardless, staffers for the Silt Republican have sent emails to local officials saying the congresswoman would accept their requests if they made them by today, but isn’t promising if she will submit anything specifically.
Lauren Boebert Says Donald Trump Arrest Democrat’s ‘Only Hope’ of Winning 
Representative Lauren Boebert (R-CO) has hit out at Democrats and said the party’s “only hope” of winning in 2024 is if former president Donald Trump is arrested. The Republican firebrand hit out at Democrats amid Trump’s claim that he will be arrested on Tuesday as part of an ongoing investigation into an alleged hush payment he made. Trump is being investigated by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg over an alleged payment he made to adult film star Stormy Daniels during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Adam Frisch nearly unseated Lauren Boebert last year. In one big way, 2024 could be harder. 
Adam Frisch defied political consensus when he nearly unseated Republican U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert last year in her GOP-stronghold district. In some ways, however, the Democrat’s 2024 rematch with the controversial Western Slope congresswoman may be tougher. That’s because Frisch’s near-win highlighted Boebert’s vulnerabilities, both to the congresswoman and to national Republicans, who are desperate to hold onto their majority in the U.S. House. More attention on the race is a double-edged sword for Frisch: It means more money and focus from Democratic and Republican groups alike that mostly ignored the 2022 race in the 3rd Congressional District because they assumed Boebert would cruise to victory.

Boebert’s speech and Q&A session with students at Dolores High School in Dolores on Wednesday made the news outlet “uncomfortable” because “her talk ventured beyond governance into political territory,” its editorial board wrote Friday.

The Silicon Valley Bank meltdown is hitting some Colorado startups 
GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert took to Twitter to accuse regulators of giving the banks a “bailout” that she said is “about protecting the donor base of the Democrats and ensuring if you invest in DEI and ESG you’ll be just fine!” Boebert offered no proof to support those claims. SVB had a high concentration of tech and venture capital clients, while Signature had many cryptocurrency clients. The Western Slope legislator also referenced the Sunday night briefing call, highlighting that a fellow member asked what steps the administration was taking to stop misinformation about the banks on social media. Boebert tweeted “this administration AGAIN just committed the federal government to interfere with free speech. Unacceptable!”

School officials and Boebert’s office billed the session in the Dolores Schools gymnasium as a kind of civics discussion, but the congresswoman also spoke of her efforts with the Freedom Caucus – a conservative bloc of Republican representatives – the U.S. response to COVID-19, and in response to students’ questions, about her personal and political development. Boebert, a second-term Republican, represents Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District, which includes 27 counties comprising about 50,000 square miles. The congresswoman spoke to students about her role as a representative and emphasized that she relies on the Constitution and the Founding Fathers’ Federalist Papers as a guide in her work.

Defamation lawsuit against Boebert heading to a Colorado courtroom, Muckrakers president says 
A North Carolina political activist is preparing to file a lawsuit against U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert of Silt in federal court in Colorado, the activist told Newsline. David Wheeler, president of the American Muckrakers PAC, sued Boebert in a North Carolina state court last year for defamation and malicious prosecution. In January, the judge dismissed the case, saying that the proper venue for it was in Colorado. Wheeler said he’s heeding the judge’s advice and is poised to bring a similar lawsuit against Boebert in Colorado, though now he plans to file in federal court.

Six-week abortion ban clears first House hurdle 
Sarah Parker, a co-founder of Women’s Voice of Southwest Florida, told the panel the discussion over the bill gave her “Lauren Boebert vibes,” referring to the 36-year-old Colorado Congresswoman who last week announced she will soon be a grandmother. “I’m trying to figure out when we’re going to start celebrating teen pregnancy,” she said. “You know this bill is wildly unpopular. I never thought I would be on the side of Sen. Rick Scott, but here I am. Thank you, again, for imploding yourselves.”

Rep.

Rep. Lauren Boebert opens the door to earmarks after calling them ‘wasteful’ in previous years 
At least one Colorado Republican is changing her tune when it comes to seeking community project funding, otherwise known as earmarks, as the budget process begins in Washington, D.C. GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert shunned the process in the previous two budget cycles, but said this time around, she will collect submissions for earmark requests. Republican Rep. Ken Buck remains opposed to the use of earmarks, according to his office. GOP Rep. Doug Lamborn’s office did not reply to questions about his stance on seeking federal dollars for community projects.
Kevin McCarthy intends to restore order to GOP House following 2022 Midterm elections 
McCarthy could try to set a tone for governing. Especially ahead of a few topsy-turvy months concerning the debt ceiling. No one’s rattled yet. All it could take is a market shock to spark panic. The Treasury Department says the U.S. will hit the debt ceiling in early June. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) predicts the date falls later in the summer. No one truly knows. But that’s why some wonder about courting calm. “I would feel better if I (were) the markets based on the meeting I had today (with the President),” said McCarthy after the White House session. Not all House Republicans crave political tranquility. The GOP base — and certainly those aligned with former President Trump — regularly sow chaos. Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., recently tangled with Rep. Jared Huffman, D-Calif., at the first meeting of the House Natural Resources Committee over a proposal to bar lawmakers from bringing firearms into the panel’s hearing room.Boebert then charged that Huffman was “wasting time on political stunts.”
Big tech was a major target at CPAC, but conservatives building alternatives are facing challenges 
Big tech was in the crosshairs once again at one of the biggest annual gatherings of conservative politicians and personalities. In speeches at the Conservative Political Action Conference in National Harbor, Maryland, elected officials, including Republican Sens. Eric Schmitt of Missouri and Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, targeted big tech and the legal immunity companies enjoy under Section 230, which is being considered by the Supreme Court. Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., said in her speech Saturday: “I have called for 230 protections to be removed from these big tech companies who are hiding behind Section 230, and they are acting like editors rather than publishers.”

Trump backs far-right campaign to abolish the Department of Education 
More than a decade later, the idea is apparently popular again in far-right circles: A few weeks ago, Republican Rep. Thomas Massie of Kentucky introduced legislation to abolish the U.S. Department of Education altogether. Though the bill has no realistic chance of success, it’s picked up 17 Republican co-sponsors — and counting — and the list includes some familiar far-right figures, including Arizona’s Andy Biggs, Colorado’s Lauren Boebert, Georgia’s Marjorie Taylor Greene, Arizona’s Paul Gosar, and Florida’s Matt Gaetz.

Senate candidate Ruben Gallego isn’t running from his trauma 
Boebert made the point that there were “unhinged” people out there, and that there were plenty of examples of political violence to point to as cautionary tales: the time a deranged gunman shot up a baseball practice attended by congressional Republicans; the 1954 attack on the Capitol by Puerto Rican nationalists. As Boebert spoke, Gallego, rested his hand on his chin and raised his eyebrows. “The member from Colorado forgot to mention January 6th, which was also an assault on representatives,” Gallego said. “Yes, it was awful when Ashli Babbitt was murdered,” Boebert interrupted, referring to the woman who was shot and killed by Capitol Police while attempting to climb through a shattered window into the Speaker’s Lobby.

Boebert’s son Tyler, when she talked with him about becoming a grandmother, pointed out that Boebert made her own mother a grandmother at 36 and he suggested it was “hereditary,” Boebert told those at the breakfast.

Boebert Co-Sponsors Resolution to End U.S. Military Aid to Ukraine 
Colorado Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (R-CO) is among a group of nearly a dozen far-right Republicans who have co-sponsored a House resolution that calls for an end of all U.S. military and financial aid to Ukraine. The resolution, which was introduced by Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) earlier this month, claims that by providing aid to Ukraine, the U.S. is “inadvertently contributing to civilian casualties.” Tens of thousands of civilians have died and millions more have fled Ukraine since Russia started its full-scale invasion of the country on Feb. 24, 2022.

Boebert focuses unfortunate attention on Trump’s Covid record 
In August 2020, William Saletan put together a timeline of events for Slate, and in hindsight, it’s tough to read the piece without cringing. On Jan. 10, for example, after Trump received a briefing on developments in Wuhan, he told Fox News: “We have a great relationship with China right now, so I don’t want to speak badly of anyone.” Nearly two weeks later, Trump assured the public that China “is in very good shape” and he was “not at all” concerned about a possible pandemic. When CNBC asked the Republican on Jan. 22, “Do you trust that we’re going to know everything we need to know from China?” Trump responded, “I do. I have a great relationship with President Xi.”

The 2024 elections may feel far off, but in Colorado’s most contested House districts, they’re already looming 
The next federal election is more than 20 months away, but behind the scenes, political forces are already gearing up for Colorado to be back in the national spotlight. The state’s two marquee races in 2024 will be Republican Lauren Boebert in congressional district 3 and Democrat Yadira Caraveo in congressional district 8, both of whom won by extremely slender margins. Last year, Caraveo beat Republican Barbara Kirkmeyer by 0.7 percent of the vote in the toss-up seat. Boebert won against her Democratic rival, Adam Frish, by 0.2 percent of the vote in a race that on paper favored Republicans by +9, according to the state’s independent redistricting commission.

And more are expected to follow suit, especially since Trump has built a lot of goodwill on Capitol Hill through playing in primaries.
Boebert Gets Double Billing at Right-Wing Conference in Washington DC 
Members of Congress won’t be hard to find at this year’s Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC), which started yesterday just outside Washington, D.C.: 28 are scheduled to speak, either solo or as a part of a panel discussion. Yet, according to the current agenda, of those nine senators and 19 representatives, only Colorado Congresswoman Lauren Boebert has two solo speaking appearances. Both of Boebert’s speeches are scheduled for this Saturday, the final day of the conference and the one that typically features the most prominent speakers. Boebert kicks off CPAC’s last day bright and early with the Women’s Breakfast, hosted by Moms for America (MFA), a conservative Christian mothers advocacy group.
