Lauren Opal Boebert born December 19, 1986) is an American politician, businesswoman, and gun rights activist.A member of the Republican Party, she serves as the US representative for Colorado's 3rd congressional district. 

Born in Florida to parents who moved to Colorado when she was 12, Boebert dropped out of high school and, after a few years, started working for a drilling company, where she met her husband. 

NOTE:   In September 2019, Boebert aide and future campaign manager Sherrona Bishop published a video on her Facebook page in which she interviewed a self-proclaimed member of the far-right group Proud Boys, which Bishop called “ pro-everything that makes America great", adding, "thank God for you guys and the Proud Boys”. 

Bishop left the Boebert campaign shortly after Boebert won the Republican nomination. In October 2020, Boebert's campaign denied any connection to the Proud Boys and said Boebert did not share Bishop's views.

On June 30, Boebert won the Republican nomination with 54.6% of the vote to Tipton's 45.4%.The result gained national attention and surprised political commentators. CNN and Politico called it a "stunning upset"; The Hill made a similar statement.  Tipton conceded defeat on election night and Trump congratulated Boebert in a tweet. Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chair Cheri Bustos said in a statement that national Republicans should disavow Boebert for supporting QAnon.

LOST HER RESTAURANT — THEY DIDN’T WANT HER  — Her restaurant became a hotbed of the wrong people and her landlord decided not to renew her lease. Can you blame the company for not renewing when the next package received could be a bomb. I would not want her there.

▪️  Shooters Grill, a restaurant owned by Representative Lauren Boebert of Colorado where waitresses with guns holstered on their hips served “Shotgun” burritos, “Locked N’ Loaded Nachos,” “Swiss & Wesson” burgers and “Rifle Toast,” closed on Sunday after the building’s landlord decided not to renew the lease.

▪️  Ms. Boebert confirmed the closing in a statement posted on Twitter on Thursday afternoon, after being contacted by The New York Times, and said the landlord, Milken Enterprises, had “no political motivation.”

▪️  Benjamin Stout, the communications director for Ms. Boebert, told The Denver Post in June that the lease for the congresswoman’s campaign office, which is next door to Shooters, would also not be renewed by Milken Enterprises. Ms. Boebert’s statement on Thursday did not address her campaign office and Mr. Stout did not respond to an email about it.

Telephone and text messages sent to Daniel Meskin, a principal owner of Milken Enterprises, were not immediately answered on Thursday.

▪️  Ms. Boebert was elected to Congress in 2020, unseating a five-term incumbent by running far to his right. She has embraced spectaclescreaming at President Biden during his State of the Union address, and prompted the installation of metal detectors outside the House chamber with her vows to carry a gun onto the House floor. Last month, she won her Republican primary. 

▪️  Ms. Boebert told The Post Independent, which previously reported the closing on Wednesday, that she was notified in June that the lease for the restaurant would not be renewed. According to the outlet, Ms. Boebert said, “ There wasn’t really much wiggle room or anywhere to compromise unless we bought the building ourselves.”


▪️  Shooters Grill, Rep. Lauren Boebert’s (R-Colo.) Rifle, Colorado, restaurant where servers are encouraged to open carry firearms, closed its doors on Sunday after the property’s landlord declined to renew the lease, according to local news reports.  It’s unclear why the landlord chose not to keep Shooters as a tenant, but a source told the Daily Beast that the property manager felt a “moral” imperative to shutter the restaurant.

▪️  ◽️HER SIDE :   “ We were like a family,” Boebert told the Glenwood Springs Post Independent. “I would say Shooters, for any employee, was their life. We lived and breathed it every single day. They were a part of this culture and brand that we created in Rifle, and there was a lot of pride with that.”

▪️  THEIR SIDE :  The former Shooters employees I interviewed earlier this year tell a different story. Five former workers told me that Boebert consistently failed to pay her employees on time. One claimed that, in one instance, Boebert pointed a loaded gun at him.

▪️  TAX --LIENS —  Boebert has also come under investigation from several state agencies over her alleged use of campaign funds to pay off tax liens on her restaurant. Between 2016 and 2020, she accumulated $20,000 in tax liens from the state because of her failure to pay unemployment premiums.

▪️“It’s been an amazing journey,” Boebert told the Post Independent. “I don’t regret anything.” 


She also said that the new venture “may look like a Shooters coffee shop with pastries and some easy breakfast sandwiches and merchandise.”   Perhaps that explains the message scrawled on a chalkboard outside the darkened doorway of the restaurant: “Thanks for the support. Stay tuned. 

▪️ Mother Jones was unable to reach the landlord for comment. A phone call to the now-shuttered restaurant went unanswered.  

▪️  Just another loud mouthed uneducated wannabe bitch needing to be thrown out of Congress and once again there are more states with dumb voters than we thought.

▪️  She is to our knowledge the only person in Congress with  a GED high school diploma.  This is as significant as Mike Huckabee, the first in his family after three generations to actually graduating High School we thought was a miracle.  

▪️  Together they founded Shooters Grill, a restaurant in Rifle, Colorado, where staff members were encouraged to openly carry firearms.  Which is now closed, lease not renewed by owner.

▪️  Boebert is known for her gun rights advocacy, in particular after a confrontation with Beto O'Rourke over the policy on semi-automatic rifles. 

▪️  She launched a campaign for Colorado's 3rd congressional district in the 2020 election. Boebert unexpectedly defeated incumbent representative Scott Tipton in the primary election, after which she beat the Democratic nominee, former state representative Diane Mitsch Bush, in the general election. 

▪️  In Congress, Boebert associated herself with the conservative Republican Study Committee, the right-wing Freedom Caucus, of which she became the communications chair in January 2022, and the pro-gun Second Amendment Caucus. 

▪️  She has declared her candidacy for reelection in 2022 and is the current Republican nominee for the Republican-leaning seat.

▪️  Boebert is often described as a far-right ally of former President Donald Trump, although she rejects this term.  Note: The term far-right ally of T-RUMP for means‘ You are now entitled to kiss his left buttock. 

▪️  SKINNY BITCH - BIG MOUTH —  She has faced calls for House censure over her offensive remarks, including some directed at US representative Ilhan Omar. 

▪️  T-RUMP FRAUD ELECTION SUPPORTER   —  Boebert supports Trump's false claims that the 2020 election was stolen from him and voted to overturn its results during the Electoral College vote count. 

▪️  SHE IS NOT A DOCTOR  —  Boebert opposes mask and vaccine mandates and posted misinformation related to face masks and COVID-19 vaccines. 

▪️  Some academic and journalistic sources have also investigated her ties to far-right extremism.

▪️  SHE NEEDS TO MOVE TO URANUS  —  She opposes transitioning to green energy, abortion, sex education, sex-reassignment, surgeries for minors, and non-heterosexual marriage. 

▪️  She advocates for an isolationist foreign policy (though with closer ties with Israel for religious reasons) and minimizing immigration to the United States. 

▪️  BORN AGAINER WHO DID NOT READ THE CONSTITUTION — A self-described born-again Christian, Boebert has said that she is " tired of this separation of church and state junk" and argued that the church should have a bigger role in government decision-making.

▪️  Boebert was born in Altamonte Springs, Florida, on December 19, 1986. When she was 12, she and her family moved to the Montbello neighborhood of Denver and later to Aurora, Colorado, before settling in Rifle, Colorado in 2003.

▪️  HIGH SCHOOL DROPOUT — AND PREGNANT  —  Boebert has said that her family depended on welfare when she was growing up.  She dropped out of high school during her senior year when she had a baby in 2004, and earned a GED certificate in 2020, a month before her first election primary.   ( Nothing like a high school dropout in Congress) 

▪️  Boebert has said that she was raised in a Democratic household in a liberal area, but records at the Colorado secretary of state's office show that her mother was registered to vote in Colorado as a Republican from 2001 to 2013 and as a Democrat from 2015 to 2020.  Boebert herself registered to vote in 2006, at age 19, as a Democrat; in 2008, she changed her affiliation to Republican.  ( The Democrats told her they didn’t need another idiot)  

▪️  September 2019, Boebert made national headlines when she confronted Beto O'Rourkea candidate in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary, at an Aurora town hall meeting over his proposal for a buy-back program and a ban on assault-style rifles like AR-15s.   

▪️  ASPEN CITY GUN LAW — L ater that month, she opposed a measure banning guns in city-owned buildings at a meeting of the Aspen City Council. The ordinance passed unanimously a month later.

▪️  OPPOSED RED FLAG LAWS  —  Boebert was an organizer of the December 2019 "We Will Not Comply!" rally opposing Colorado's red flag law, which allows guns to be taken from people deemed a threat. The American Patriots,  Three Percent Militia, affiliated with the Three Percenters, provided security, and members of the Proud Boys attended the rally.   

▪️  On Twitter, Boebert has used rhetoric friendly to the Three Percenters and posed with members of the group (she deleted the tweet with the photos after being asked about it). During her congressional campaign, she said she was "with the militia”.
SHAKY BOOKS — Boebert reimbursed herself $22,259 for mileage costs in 2020 from her campaign's finances, which legally would require her to have driven 38,712 mi (62,301 km). The Denver Post reported in early February 2021 that three ethics experts said that the high figure was suspicious. Boebert's campaign attributed the figure to her "aggressive travel schedule", but members of her campaign did not provide evidence for the amount of travel. 

▪️  LIAR —  CPR News calculated that it was plausible that Boebert had driven 30,000 miles based on her visits to 129 events. Boebert said in a mid-February interview that she "drove tens of thousands of miles ... I had to make those connections, and really, I underreported a lot of stuff." In late February 2021, Boebert's campaign updated its campaign finance filing, reclassifying $3,053 claimed for mileage to "hotels", and $867 claimed for mileage to Uber rides, thus claiming a mileage of around 30,000 miles.

▪️  Despite campaign finance laws and ethics laws requiring Congressional candidates to reveal their immediate family's income sources to show potential conflicts of interest, Boebert did not report her husband's income in her 2020 filing, instead belatedly revealing it in August 2021, the same day the Federal Election Commission (FEC) sent her a letter investigating her campaign expenses. 

▪️  The filing, while misnaming the company involved, stated that her husband Jayson earned $460,000 in 2019 and $478,000 in 2020 as a consultant for Terra Energy, one of Colorado's largest natural gas producers and fourth nationwide in methane emissions. 

▪️  The company told The Daily Beast that Jayson was a contracted shift worker for the company who was not paid directly but through another company, Boebert Consulting.  As of 2021, Colorado classified Boebert Consulting as a delinquent company due to the lack of filings or registered agent with the state. Boebert oversees the energy industry via her position on the House Committee on Natural Resources.
