Boebert book-ban amendment one factor in split defense-bill vote among Colorado representatives 
Six of Colorado’s eight representatives in the U.S. House voted against the annual defense authorization bill that far-right Republicans loaded with policies restricting access to abortion and gender-affirming health care.  The National Defense Authorization Act is typically a bipartisan project in Congress and is necessary to keep the military running. But amendments added by several Republicans, including Rep. Lauren Boebert of Silt, have led to another culture-war conflict in Congress as Democrats argued the bill’s focus on social issues weakens its military substance and threatens the bill’s viability.

Democrat Adam Frisch has raised 3 times more than Lauren Boebert so far this year 
In the first six months of 2023, Adam Frisch has raised nearly as much money as he did the entirety of his campaign for Congress in 2022. Frisch, a Democrat from Aspen running against incumbent U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert to represent Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District, has raised nearly $4.4 million this year. Boebert has brought in slightly more than $1.4 million. According to the latest campaign finance reports filed with the Federal Election Commission, Frisch raised $2.6 million in the second quarter of 2023 and Boebert raised nearly $750,000.

Lauren Boebert sings praise of Jason Aldean: “Time for CMT to get the Bud Light treatment” 
U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert has entered the discussion over the controversy surrounding a popular country song. Colorado’s Republican congresswoman recently joined Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem in defending pop-country singer and guitarist Jason Aldean, while criticizing what she called censorship over his recent song “Try That in a Small Town.” The music video for Aldean’s song was pulled from CMT this week over some of its themes and facts surrounding the video itself. The song was released in May, but according to Billboard, the accompanying video wasn’t released until July 14 and had been in heavy rotation through Sunday before it was pulled on Monday.

Boebert gets good news, bad news 
The bad news is that her re-election bid for the 3rd Congressional District has been downgraded from leaning Republican to a “tossup” by the Cook Political Report, which said that Boebert hasn’t changed her firebrand way of doing business despite winning reelection by only 546 votes last year to Democrat Adam Frisch, who again is running against her. The downgrade also cited Frisch’s campaign raising nearly three times in donations compared to what Boebert did in the second quarter of this year, $2.6 million to her $747,598. That came after Frisch had already outraised Boebert by $1 million after announcing his second bid with barely a month left in the first quarter of 2023.

Donald Trump Jr. and Lauren Boebert headline Pueblo GOP event 
Trump Jr. declined to speak with local media who covered the event, but said the press does not do enough digging into Hunter Biden. He implied other countries have dirt on Biden. “If we had journalists — if we had media that were something other than regime propagandists, if they were something other than the marketing arm of the Democratic Party — you’d say, ‘Hey, Joe Biden, do you think you’re making this decision because China has some other stuff on Hunter’? Trump Jr. criticized the Pentagon for sending billions of dollars of aid to Ukraine. He also said that hiring a drag queen to market for the U.S. Navy is hurting recruitment efforts.

‘Not what it was’: House Freedom Caucus wrestles with its future amid split over tactics and Trump 
When a band of House Freedom Caucus members met last month to strategize over how to hold GOP leadership accountable for the bipartisan debt ceiling deal, not everyone from the far-right group was invited. Around a half dozen hardliners opted to hold a secret strategy session, where they hashed out a game plan to tank a key procedural vote in retaliation for their demands being ignored in the debt limit fight, according to a source involved in the effort. Normally, this type of plotting would have played out in one of the weekly Freedom Caucus meetings. But side sessions and private discussions among a small bloc of rebellious lawmakers have become more common and even necessary, some members say, after months of internal disagreements over tactics, policies and allegiances to their party’s leadership have fomented distrust within the group’s ranks.

The House also passed an amendment that would bar a health care program for service members from covering hormone treatments for transgender individuals and gender confirmation surgeries. Colorado conservative Rep. Lauren Boebert’s amendment to block military schools from purchasing or having “pornographic and radical gender ideology books” in their libraries also passed. In an overwhelming vote, the House failed to adopt an amendment banning cluster munitions from being sold or transferred to Ukraine. GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia offered the amendment, which failed 147-276.

On June 1, Gov. Jared Polis (D-CO) was honored with the Mizel Community Enrichment Award. The annual event honors “deserving individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the community and worked to significantly enhance the lives of others.” Among the event’s numerous attendees was Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (R-CO). Boebert has routinely clashed with Polis, having made numerous anti-LGBT statements as well as having called his executive actions during the COVID pandemic “tyranny.” However she and the Governor share a connection to Mizel Institute founder Larry A. Mizel, who has been a major donor to both of them.

Boebert challenger Adam Frisch hauls in record-shattering $2.6 million for quarter 
Adam Frisch, the Colorado Democrat running to unseat Republican U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert in next year’s election, raised more than $2.6 million in the second quarter, smashing records for the most money raised from donors by a challenger in a House race in an off-year, his campaign said Thursday. Frisch, who came within 546 votes of Boebert in last year’s election in the closest House race in the country, has raised a total of $4.4 million from nearly 85,000 individual donors since launching his bid for a rematch in February. In the quarter ending June 30, his campaign received more than 81,000 donations averaging $32, his campaign said.

Vulnerable U.S. House Republicans who opposed student debt plan targeted in 2024 
Supporters of student loan debt cancellation are organizing to hold GOP lawmakers “accountable” in the 2024 election cycle following the U.S. Supreme Court ruling blocking President Joe Biden’s debt relief plan. The left-leaning Protect Borrowers Action will target 13 U.S. House districts across California, Colorado, Michigan, Nebraska, New York, Oregon and Pennsylvania where Republicans opposed Biden’s plan to forgive up to $20,000 for roughly 40 million qualifying student loan borrowers.

Marjorie Taylor Greene booted from House Freedom Caucus 
It’s the first public confirmation of Greene’s fate within the conservative group. The vote was first reported by POLITICO, though it was unclear at the time whether she had been ejected. It took place less than two days after Greene got into a verbal floor fight with Freedom Caucus member Boebert, during which Greene referred to the Colorado Republican as a “little bitch.” After the exchange was first reported, Greene confirmed the fight and doubled down, adding another pejorative. The two have clashed repeatedly in the past, but Harris indicated that particular spat had factored into the conservative group’s thinking.

House conservatives’ hardball tactics anger moderates and leave McCarthy in middle 
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has a blunt message for House GOP moderates: Impeach President Joe Biden or face a fierce backlash from voters next year. “What’s going to hurt them is not supporting articles of impeachment,” Greene, the Georgia firebrand, told CNN. On the other side: Republicans in swing districts wary of the tactics embraced by Greene and others on the far right as they push their conference in a sharply conservative direction and away from the bread-and-butter issues they sold to voters.

Representatives Lauren Boebert and Marjorie Taylor Greene were once seen as kindred spirits, sharing a divisive political style and intense opposition to Democrats. The Republicans protested the certification of Joe Biden as president and heckled him during his first State of the Union address. They often sat beside each other in the House chamber or walked the halls together. Both stalwart Donald Trump supporters, they seemed to maintain the same circle of right-wing colleagues. But over the past year, they have been locked in an increasingly public feud that has made their alliance seem like a distant memory.

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) criticized Adam Frisch, her Democratic opponent, running for her seat for the second time, and attacked Melvin and Hope, Frisch’s father and sister, for their history as OB-GYNs. “Abortions paid for Adam’s privileged childhood and private schooling, and abortionists help fund his campaign,” Boebert was quoted as saying in a Fox News article Friday. When Boebert retweeted Fox News’ story, she wrote, “Abortion is the Frisch family business. It’s shameful to see anyone use the killing of innocent babies to line the pockets of their political campaign and fund their family’s Aspen lifestyle.”

Democrats decry — while Republicans welcome — end of affirmative action in college admissions 
Colorado Democrats decried and Republicans welcomed Thursday’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling striking down affirmative action, with Democrats saying justices turned their backs on a strategy that has served to “correct for past discrimination” and offer “more opportunities to historically underrepresented communities. Republicans in turn argued that college admissions should only be based on individual merit. Lauding the court’s decision, state House Minority Leader Mike Lynch said no American under the U.S. Constitution should “ever be denied opportunity because of the color of their skin or because of their race.”

House Republicans push off Biden impeachment bid for now as hard-right clamors for action 
Rep. Lauren Boebert, backed by allies, was able to use House rules to force a snap vote on such a grave constitutional matter. The 219-208 party-line vote sent her resolution to committees for possible consideration, like any other bill. They are under no obligation to do anything. Still, Boebert, R-Colo., argued during debate, “The House is taking historic action.” The episode underscores the hold that the House conservative flank exerts over McCarthy, compelling him to accommodate their hard-right priorities if he wants to stay in power.

Greene confirmed a Daily Beast report that she called her Freedom Caucus colleague “a little bitch” on the House floor, telling reporters that the story was “impressively correct.” In an interview following the spat, Boebert demurred when asked where she stands on the Freedom Caucus purge pitch: “If something comes up,” she said, “then we’ll address it.” “It’s really unfortunate that somebody communicated the conversation that took place on the floor” between herself and Greene, Boebert added, “because I was willing to walk away [from] people wanting to stir up unnecessary drama.”

Adam Frisch, the Democrat vying for the Republican-held Colorado seat next cycle, sent an email blast Saturday, highlighting that members of his family were abortion doctors and labeling Boebert’s pro-life position as “extreme.” Adam’s father, Melvin Frisch, has a decades-long history of work in the abortion industry dating back to the early 1970s, when he served in the Public Health Service on the Fort Peck Indian Reservation in northeastern Montana.

How the Democrat Who Lost to Lauren Boebert by 546 Votes Plans to Oust Her in 2024 
Last year, Democrat Adam Frisch launched what most thought was a longshot bid for Congress against one of the nation’s most famous conservative firebrands: Rep. Lauren Boebert. It ended up becoming the closest House race in the country, with the Republican incumbent squeaking through by 546 votes. Now Frisch is running again as less of a longshot and more of a certified contender, arguing the proof of concept he delivered last time will mean swing voters will be even more open to backing him in 2024.

Colorado Congresswoman Lauren Boebert has introduced articles of impeachment against Pres.

Joe Biden is unable and unwilling to faithfully execute the office of President of the United States. To preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution, it is imperative that the House of Representatives impeach Joe Biden and hold him accountable for his egregious violations of his oath of office.”

Citing Video Showing Boebert Running To Vote on Debt Bill, Activists Call On Her To Apologize for Claiming Absence Was a ‘No Show Protest’ 
Colorado Congresswoman Lauren Boebert’s desperate race up the U.S. Capitol steps to try to cast her vote on the debt bill, caught in a CNN video over the weekend, has prompted an activist group to call on her to apologize for “failing to do her job by missing the vote on the debt ceiling bill and then lying about her reason for missing the vote.” In a statement that is now part of the Congressional Record, Boebert initially explained that she missed the voted because she was “unavoidably detained.” Later, she claimed she was engaging in a “no show protest.” ProgressNow Colorado — a multi-issue state advocacy organization — launched a petition yesterday urging people to “join our call for Rep. Boebert to apologize for her dishonesty and failure to accomplish the one job voters sent her to Washington to do.”

Lamborn’s resolution cites the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment, claiming that it “situated its equal protection guarantee within a common-law and statutory context that prohibited abortion and treated the unborn human being throughout pregnancy as a ‘person,’ who under ‘common and civil law’ was ‘to all intents and purposes a child, as much as if born.’”

Far Right Turns on Marjorie Taylor Greene—and MTG Hits Back in Text to Matt Gaetz 
A MAGA soldier from a deep-red district, Greene spent her first few years in office as a thorn in the side of House GOP leadership. Her attention-seeking, Biden-bashing, pro-Trump antics endeared her to the conservative base as much as they alienated her with GOP leaders. And she owned the persona unapologetically. But lately, a different Marjorie Taylor Greene has emerged—one who’s found favor with Speaker Kevin McCarthy and scorn from the conservative allies who once adored her. And according to a text message Greene sent to Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) on Friday, Greene may be even more done with certain MAGA influencers than they are with her.

The project takes its name from the number of votes that separated Boebert from her Democratic Challenger, Adam Frisch, in the November election. In short, Colorado Democrats will lean on volunteers – they have more than two dozen so far – to knock on doors, call, text and email voters throughout the congressional district and muster support against Boebert, Murib said during a news conference.

Colorado progressive group attacks Lauren Boebert over voting record in new $300K ad campaign 
A left-leaning Colorado nonprofit launched a six-figure ad campaign this week calling on U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert to support lower prescription drug costs and federal social safety net programs. Rocky Mountain Values announced at a press conference in Pueblo on Thursday that the group plans to spend $300,000 this summer on TV, digital, radio, print and mail ads urging the Rifle Republican to listen to her constituents and stop grandstanding, a spokeswoman for the group told Colorado Politics. “We will no longer allow her antics and her extremism to distract from the fact that her record fails to deliver for Coloradans on the issues that matter most to us,” said Justin Lamorte, the group’s executive director.

Lauren Boebert misses vote on debt ceiling deal, which she vocally opposed 
U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert has been an ardent opponent of raising the country’s debt ceiling to avoid default, but she did not cast her vote on the issue Wednesday. The House passed legislation to raise the government’s debt ceiling on Wednesday just days before a critical deadline that would damage the country’s credit rating and, economists warn, spark a recession. The vote came after days of tense negotiations between House Republicans and President Joe Biden’s administration. The Senate must still pass the measure. The bill passed 314-117 in the House with bipartisan support, well over the simple majority needed, so Boebert’s vote wouldn’t have been the deciding factor in the matter. But the far-right congresswoman, whose sprawling district covers Colorado’s Western Slope, repeatedly spoke out against the move.

Colorado’s congressional delegation seeks $1.7 billion for special projects in the state 
Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert of Garfield County joined the five Democrats in Colorado’s House delegation in requesting earmarks. She was opposed to the earmark process last year, but supports it now after the GOP majority in the House instituted new rules about what the money can be requested for. “As a result of our historic changes, I am now able to fight for important infrastructure projects for the 3rd District of Colorado,” she wrote in an opinion piece. In a competing opinion piece, Hickenlooper pushed back on her claim that earmarks were somehow previously corrupt, citing numerous projects he sponsored in the 3rd Congressional District over the past two years.
Lauren Boebert says President Biden’s plan to fight antisemitism is a plot ‘to go after conservatives’ 
The Biden administration announced the National Strategy to Counter Antisemitism to protect Jewish communities across the US this week. Biden released a video about the new strategy, saying hate has been “given too much oxygen” in recent years and has fuelled a “record rise in antisemitism.” But Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert denounced the plan in a tweet to her 2.5 million followers: “When they say stuff like this, they mean they want to go after conservatives.”

Sen. John Hickenlooper: Which of these projects is corrupt, Rep. Boebert? 
Is funding for a rural clinic in Palisade corrupt? How about an affordable housing project in Rifle? Or a wastewater emergency generator in Craig? Which of these is evidence that Congress is trying to “buy votes and waste taxpayer money?” Rep. Lauren Boebert recently announced in this paper that she had reconsidered and now supports Congressionally Directed Spending, or earmarks as they’re sometimes known. She defended this change of heart by saying that she helped “fix” the process by stripping out “corrupt, vote-buying behavior” that supposedly marred the program over the past two years. (That didn’t stop her from taking credit for these projects once they were passed into law without her support.)
Boebert offers bill to repeal bipartisan gun control measures 
Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) has introduced a bill to repeal bipartisan gun control measures passed by the last Congress. Boebert’s proposed bill, the Shall Not Be Infringed Act, would “repeal the gun control provisions and every Second Amendment infringement” that was passed and by the 117th Congress and signed into law by President Biden. That includes the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, the 2023 Omnibus Appropriations bill, the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2023, and the 2023 National Defense Authorization Act, according to the bill.
Boebert Promotes “Globalist” Conspiracy at Rally Opposing World Health Organization 
Congresswoman Boebert joined many of her Freedom Caucus colleagues in a full-blown “globalist” conspiracy press conference yesterday. In addition to a dozen or so members of Congress, the “Exit the WHO [World Health Organization]” event at the Capitol featured organizer Frank Gaffney, a notorious Islamophobe whose Center for Security Policy is an anti-Muslim hate group. Gaffney and the lawmakers, including Boebert, made numerous unsubstantiated claims, from the World Health Organization being controlled by China, to blaming it for the COVID pandemic, to claiming it is the vehicle for a plot to force all nations under a single worldwide government.
Boebert Promotes Seth Rich Conspiracy Via News Site Owned By Alex Jones, Who Claimed Sandy Hook Massacre Never Happened 
U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) continued her pattern of retweeting discredited news outlets, retweeting a link this morning from National File, a site founded by Alex Jones to circumvent Facebook’s 2019 ban of Infowars, which is Jones’ better-known propaganda site. In 2012, Jones falsely claimed the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre was a government ploy to take guns from Americans and never actually happened. Courts awarded families of children who died in the school shooting a total of about $1.4 billion. Jones has hid his assets and declared bankruptcy in an effort to avoid paying the families.
‘Go woke, go broke’: Lauren Boebert joins Ron DeSantis in punishing Disney for opposing ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill 
There are some kids who grow up supporting the Injustice League over Batman, Wonder Woman and co., and it turns out these people often end up as Republican politicians. So, it’s no surprise that Lauren Boebert, congresswoman and wife of a noted sex offender, has joined the Florida governor, Ron DeSantis, in his crusade to erase the existence of LGBTQ+ people, all while also pissing off one of the biggest and most beloved corporations in his state. In a recent statement (via Newsweek), Boebert has taken a direct aim at Disney by supporting a bill that would scrap the two no-fly zones that the company has over their amusement parks as “woke corporations shouldn’t get any favors from the government.”
Boebert Shows She Doesn’t Know How Days Of The Week Work With Mind-Numbing Tweet 
Colorado Republican Representative Lauren Boebert has once again found herself at the center of a debate, this time concerning a tweet she wrote that betrayed her understanding of mathematics and data analytics. The tweet in question focused on Title 42, a pandemic-related public health measure implemented during the Trump era to restrict the entry of migrants at the Mexican border. As the measure expired on May 11, concerns arose regarding a potential surge in attempted border crossings into the United States.

The moment, which is captured in Mr Burdett’s footage, shows the man in the suit — Mr Higgins — walking up, introducing himself, and telling the activist to back off and that he will answer his questions after the conference. “All I’m asking you to do is just peacefully stand by with your camera and I promise you—look at me—I’ll come talk to you straight up and answer all your questions. Fair enough?” Mr Higgins asks.

Complaint alleges Lauren Boebert misused campaign money ahead of 2022 election 
U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert faces allegations that she misspent campaign funds, this time ahead of the 2022 election. Boebert is accused of exceeding campaign finance limits or improperly reporting nearly $60,000 spent on campaign calls and texts, potentially in support of her own reelection campaign, which she narrowly won against Democratic challenger Adam Frisch. In short, the complaint – filed this month by End Citizens United, a left-leaning political action committee – claims that Boebert either used her own political action committee’s money to benefit her reelection campaign, exceeding federal spending limits more than ten times over, or that she used that money to influence a different campaign and failed to report the spending appropriately.

Lauren Boebert Joins Ron DeSantis’ Fight Against Disney 
Lauren Boebert has joined a battle Republican lawmakers are waging against Disney, adding her support to a bill that would scrap two no-fly zones over the entertainment company’s amusement parks. The GOP representative for Colorado was among the seven original cosponsors of HR 3109, which would direct the Secretary of Transportation to rescind the exclusionary zones in the airspace above Disneyland in California and Disneyworld in Florida. In a statement, Boebert said: “Woke corporations shouldn’t get any favors from the government.”

Lauren Boebert Defends Tucker Carlson’s Leaked ‘Women’s Bathroom’ Comments 
Lauren Boebert has defended Tucker Carlson after footage was leaked showing the former Fox News host asking a makeup lady whether “pillow fights” ever break out in the women’s bathroom. The video emerged after Fox News announced it had “agreed to part ways” with Carlson, arguably the network’s biggest star, on April 24. There is intense speculation over what Carlson will do next, with some suggesting he could launch his own online show or even run for the presidency.

Most vulnerable House list runs through New York, California 
CQ Roll Call’s ranking will likely shift over the next 18 months, reflecting just how tumultuous the 2024 election cycle promises to be. At least three seats held by Democrats in North Carolina are likely to be in play after the Republican-controlled legislature redraws the district map after winning court permission to do so. Ohio Democratic Rep. Marcy Kaptur could face a similar fate. Colorado’s 3rd District, where Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert beat Democrat Adam Frisch by 546 votes in 2022, is also worth watching to see if Boebert is better prepared to take on Frisch in a rematch. And if Republicans figure out how to unify in a state that uses ranked-choice voting for the top four vote-getters, Alaska’s at-large representative, Democrat Mary Peltola, could also be at risk.
‘Enjoy cruelty to others’: GOP women accused of abandoning kindness to get ahead 
Salon’s Amanda Marcotte took up the question of why so many female GOP lawmakers have gone along with voting on Republican-sponsored bills that seek to curtail human rights. With members of the House like Reps. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Lauren Boebert (R-CO) becoming the female face of the party, the male wing has been provided cover as the women toe the line — and sometimes take the lead — on some of the Republican party’s most restrictive measures.
‘Trust the science’ on wolves, says Lauren Boebert 
A bill sponsored by U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert would usurp the authority of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and delist the gray wolf as an endangered species. H.R. 764, known as the “Trust the Science Act,” would reinstate a Trump-era rule that removed the gray wolf from the endangered species list. Wolves were first federally protected in the late 1960s, and the gray wolf itself was reclassified as its own endangered species in 1978. Since 2011, the species’ status has been in flux as policymakers and wolf advocates on both sides have clashed over whether to maintain stringent protections or loosen protection for the gray wolf. In 2020, the FWS issued a final rule delisting the species, but the rule was overturned, reinstating their endangered status, in early 2022.

Can the Dolores River be saved? 
So, for over a decade, stakeholders have been trying to figure out a way to protect the watershed without hurting irrigators. That effort culminated last year when Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., introduced legislation that would designate a national conservation area on 60 miles of the Dolores below McPhee Dam. He and a fellow Colorado Democrat, Sen. John Hickenlooper, recently reintroduced the bill. And, in a surprising demonstration of how broad-based support for the bill is, Rep. Lauren Boebert, a Colorado Republican not exactly known for conservation-minded policies, is also backing the legislation by reintroducing an identical House version.
Constituent Asks Rep. Lauren Boebert If Her Gun Idea Is A ‘Cruel Joke’ 
Extremist Rep. Lauren Boebert’s (R-Colo.) co-sponsoring of a bill to lionize the AR-15 rifle as America’s “national gun” was the subject of a scathing letter to The Denver Post this week. “Is this a cruel joke?” asked Boebert constituent Andy Wiessner, who noted the firearm’s use in many mass shootings. The letter denounced the rifle as a “weapon of war” that uses bullets “designed to tear human flesh to pieces by ‘yawing,’ tumbling or fragmenting in the body, thereby causing maximum internal bleeding and tissue damage.”

Reading the social media comments, Marylouise Kuti said she had a disturbing immediate impulse to defend Boebert, whose politics she detests. “This has just really reminded me that the work we’ve done has been so impacting and so important, but it is so not over,” Kuti said.
