Elderly librarian ejected from John McCain event! (Don't worry about the details; ProgressNow) - 07/07/08

... group to me. She's also a former Denver Post reporter (apparently under the name Carol Bell), so she's not a civilian either. There's also the question of whether she was on public or private property and whether they had a right to complain about the sign since no one else was allowed to have one. See the comment from someone who claims to be from Progress Now disputing the Denver Post's take,...

Denver public school system dumbs down "highly gifted" program to be more "equitable" (ACLU) - 03/08/08

Jeremy Meyer of the Denver Post offers 'Minorities, poor get "highly gifted" lift/A new DPS system awards some kids an extra boost to make things more equitable', but don't worry it's even worse than it sounds: ...To determine who gets into [their "highly gifted" program], the [Denver Public School district] previously relied on oral tests that measure a student's reasoning and IQ. To make...

Max Blumenthal lies about Tom Tancredo - 12/01/07

... bashing. They went straight to the Denver Post to complain. Tancredo "doesn't want us here, but he'll take advantage of our sweat and our labor," one of the workers complained to the Post on September 19, 2002. "It's just not right." 1. Once again, Tancredo didn't "hired" them directly [1]. 2. An interesting question is who exactly "alerted" the workers; was it a setup? 3. The Post...

"Hispanic vote" voted for something for some reason (or other) - 11/28/06

Elizabeth Aguilera of the Denver Post offers "Dems won over Latino voters, study says": Latino voters leaned heavily Democratic in the recent midterm elections, indicating the heated debate over immigration reform may have cost Republicans support in some key races, an analysis released Monday indicates... ...Some, however, questioned whether the study exaggerated the impact of immigration on...

Tim Dickinson/Rolling Stone's misleading, pro-illegal immigration propaganda - 10/29/06

... school boy who was profiled in The Denver Post for his perfect grades. * Tancredo doesn't support the mass deportations that Wilkinson implies that he supports; he support attrition through enforcing our laws. * The $200 billion figure refers to the Center for American Progress study "Deporting the Undocumented". That study uses a highly-flawed methodology described at the link. * The word "...

The Denver Post's Karen E. Crummy misleads about Sam Zamarripa - 07/16/06

The Denver Post's Karen E. Crummy offered "Legislator: Ga.'s law no panacea" back on June 29. It covered the new illegal immigration law in Georgia, but - as might be expected - it covered a few things up: Unfortunately, Crummy interviewed a single Georgian, State Sen. Sam Zamarripa, who voted against the reform package.

Mike Pence's "W" worker visa illegal alien amnesty scheme - 05/23/06

Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN) has introduced a "middle-ground" illegal alien amnesty scheme. It seeks to split the difference between the full-on amnesty in the Senate and the supposed only other choice of mass deportations. (As usual, the other choice of simply enforcing our current laws is not mentioned). As Rep. Tom Tancredo says: Pence's plan would require illegal aliens to return to their home...

Rocky Mountain News, The Denver Post offer "infomercials" for illegal immigration - 04/24/06

... the Rocky Mountain News or The Denver Post these days, it's sometimes like reading an infomercial for illegal immigration. I analyzed the staff-written news stories about illegal immigration which appeared in the Denver dailies from April 8 through April 15.

Denver Post blog - 02/17/06

Did you know that the Denver Post has a blog? In fact, you're ordered to think of it "as a funky old apartment building where a lot of different personalities live and hang out". Cool! Is one of those "different personalities" the Denver Mexican consul? Remember that in 2002 the Denver Post collaborated with the government of Mexico on a pro-illegal immigration puff piece. Please register to...

Karen E. Crummy of Denver Post confused about "American" concept - 01/08/06

... "real" Americans. Memo to the Denver Post: illegal aliens are not Americans, they are by definition citizens of another country. While there's the possibility they only put that in quotes because Tavares said that, isn't it correct?

Denver Post, Bill Owens immigration proposal will make you laugh out loud - 12/30/05

From the Denver Post's "Fresh ideas on immigration": ...[Colorado] Gov. Bill Owens... endorsed a plan to authorize private agencies to issue guest-worker visas to foreigners employed in the United States, concepts that will require much more study if they are to overcome skepticism and be considered by Congress. The plan, drawn up by Helen Krieble, president of the Colorado-based Vernon K.

51 Terrorist Suspects Crossed Border Illegally - 12/14/05

From this: Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-CO) today revealed figures which show that since October, 2004, 51 persons who have crossed into the U.S. illegally were arrested on suspicion of terrorism.

Have you stopped bashing immigrants? - 08/02/05

Cindy Rodriguez of the Denver Post wants us to know: "Bashing of immigrants must stop". ("Beating of wives must stop" was apparently taken.) She reports on the formation of a new group of "Latino" activists. Based on her description, the group seems to have at least two goals: 1. Confuse people over the difference between illegal immigrants and legal immigrants. 2.

The Denver Post's sloppy journalism - 07/10/05

... immigration. With that out of the way, the Denver Post offers a profile of Molina-Soto entitled "Clash, acquittal stoke advocate's political fire". Suffice it to say that the profile practically elevates her to sainthood. And, it includes the following: "I want justice and I did not get it in the criminal case," Graham said. She is soliciting funds on a website she runs to pay for her case...

"Change U.S. law on anchor babies" - 06/23/05

Al Knight of the Denver Post's editorial staff says: A measure pending in Congress would change the Constitution to deny citizenship rights to babies born to illegal immigrants. The proposed amendment is currently given little or no chance of passage but it certainly helps to focus attention on the nature of the problem... The 14th Amendment to the U.S.

"Immigration excuses need some work" - 05/23/05

David Harsanyi of the Denver Post gets it right (denverpost.com/news/ci_2751244): Did you know some consider it racist to oppose illegal immigration but perfectly reasonable to support a system that casts illegal Mexican immigrants in the most menial and undesirable jobs? The enlightened, it would seem, need someone to wash the dishes when they are done with their seared ahi and pinot noir in...

"Immigration issue yanked off GOP agenda" - 08/31/04

... amnesty plan. UPDATE: See also the Denver Post's "Unbowed, Tancredo keeps pushing immigration issue" (link). It includes this double helping of Kool-Aid flavored doublespeak: "The Republican Party is our nation's majority party and represents individuals with many different ideologies," said Danny Lopez Diaz, Bush campaign spokesman for the Southwest region.

"The Fastest Way To [profit from illegal immigration]" - 07/24/04

FirstData is the parent company of Western Union, and they're now a major processor of credit card transactions in addition to their original business of money transfer. As described here, they've also decided to attempt to unseat U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo, who represents the district in Colorado where their headquarters are based. They've been in the news recently because of this article: "...

Chris Cannon [R-UT] is "loose with facts, demeans American public discourse" - 03/26/04

... one small example, he quotes a Denver Post column that states that the group American Patrol "sends vigilantes to the?southern border to capture illegal immigrants who sneak in." That's false. That group only observes illegal aliens and reports them to the Border Patrol, it does not attempt to apprehend illegals. Using the term "vigilantes" is indicative of the author's biases. Cannon's "...
