1. U.S. Senate Candidates, Part II

With the other candidate on the Republican primary ballot calling for the Federal codification of Roe v. Wade, I hope all voters who may not yet have decided to support Ron Hanks for U.S. Senate will give him a serious look. I did many months ago a decided he has all the knowledgeexperiencetrack record as a state legislator and the principles to be an excellent senator from Colorado.

Ron was recently interviewed on 710, KNUS by Steffan Tubbs, who, at the start of the interview said he didn’t think Ron had a chance of winning. The rest of the interview may have changed his mind. See what you think by listening to this exchange.

2. More Information on the Wellington After-School “Art Club”

Last week I gave a link to this story of a totally outrageous after-school event at a Wellington school. I expected the school district officials to be shocked as well. According to a more in-depth report, published in the Epoch Timesthat is not the case. According to the Epoch Times article, the school and school district (Poudre) fully support the policies that created this situation. 

I am running this follow-up story to underscore my outrage and concern for the abuse our public schools are perpetrating on the students in Larimer County. Please check this out and protect your children from this dangerous abuse. To read the Epoch Times story click here.

 

3. One more “Follow-up”

Every story I ran last week has more developments worthy of mention this week, including the presentation the Mesa County district attorney gave the county commissioners last week. It was concerning the Report #3 that showed election manipulation by the software that counted the ballots in 2020 and 2021. The DA was trying to debunk the report. Here is the response from the authors of that report, debunking the DA’s presentation. I find their response to be much more credible and persuasive.

4. Another School Shooting

Shock and horror is not strong enough to describe our emotions over this senseless act of brutal savagery. And we have been here far too many times before. First, pray for the victims and their families.  Far too many commentators are trying to immediately turn this into a political debate. I will resist that temptation. There is a time for that discussion, but not now. Pray for their healing and comfort. We can look for real solutions in the proper time.

5. No Zoom Call on Memorial Day

The Zoom call I host every Monday morning has its exceptions and Memorial Day is one of them. There will be no call this Monday, but we should be back online the following week, on June 6.

2. Wellington After-School “Art Club” Meeting was Really a Trans-Grooming Class

3. More Election Integrity Issues

————————————–

1. U.S. Senate Candidates

I am not a fan of the hard-left online blog, Colorado Pols, but they did hit on an important point with Republican senate candidate Joe O’Dea’s response to a question about his stand (or lack of any stand) on abortion. Colorado Pols quoted a radio 710 interview between KNUS’s Jimmy Sengenberger and O’Dea. Here is the conversation:

“SENGENBERGER: Are you not pro life? Where do you fall on the issue of abortion?

“O’DEA: It’s a really complicated issue. It really is. I’m adopted, I’m Catholic, and personally, I am very pro-life. But at the same time I’ve grown up, all my life, thinking government doesn’t need to be involved in our lives. And so, I, right now, in my mind, I would not support overturning Roe v. Wade. I don’t believe that’s the right thing for Coloradans.

“At the same time, we’ve got this bill that just came through the House – the Gold Dome – that’s supported by all Democrats that would approve late-term abortions, and I can’t get my head around that. This is a very complicated issue for a lot of Coloradans, and I don’t think it’s as simple as 100% pro choice, 100% pro life. You know, all of us have different experiences in our lives, and so, you know, we need to be able to rely on ourselves. And that’s where I land.

“SENGENBERGER: And so, in the context of more compassionate than some on the far right, what does that mean in your…

“O’DEA: Well, there’s some people that just draw the line and say, ‘pro-life, every day, all day,’ and there’s others who say, ‘pro-choice all the way up until, you know, the baby is in the birth canal.’ I can’t support either one of those. I’ve landed in the middle, that’s where my head’s at, and that’s where I’ve always been.

“SENGENBERGER: I think when we look at Colorado, it’s an interesting state in that regard. I think that there are restrictions on abortion that we must pass in Colorado that are much more practical than anything that…a lot of times, people think, ‘well, we need to go for Personhood amendment.’ I think there are other ways to approach that in a state like Colorado in that regard…

“O’DEA: It’s an extremely complicated issue, and everybody has different experiences and they’re coming at it differently. At the core of it, government needs to get out of our lives, so that’s kind of where I’m going to land.

“SENGENBERGER: But more restrictions on abortion than we have in Colorado?

“O’DEA: Right now, yes. That last law is outrageous.”

So… O’Dea likes Roe, doesn’t like abortion, wants the government out of the issue but wants a poorly written 49 year old Supreme Court decision to continue to dictate the terms of abortions to all 50 states. Hmm. Sounds to me like he doesn’t have a clue and yet he wants to be in the very same Senate that approves Supreme Court justices.

Combine that with his record of giving campaign contributions to three times as many Democrats than Republicans (including Michael Bennet in 2010) and one has to wonder what the Colorado Republican establishment is thinking by endorsing this moderate who leans more to the left than the right.

The Colorado Republican establishment had better get in step with their own party who chose Ron Hanks at the state assembly as their only candidate for the U.S. Senate.

 2. Wellington After-School “Art Club” Meeting was Really a Trans-Grooming Class

In Wellington (in northern Larimer County) a mom of a 12 year old girl tells a shocking story about an incident her young daughter had at an after-school “art club” meeting that turned out to be a trans-grooming session. The “art club’ meeting was conducted by a Poudre district school teacher and on this particular day a volunteer who is also a member of the of the Larimer County Health board. At this “art club” club meeting the volunteer was representing her nonprofit group, Splash

If you are a parent or grandparent with students in the Pouder school district, you need to check this out, and follow all of the links to understand what this school district is teaching.

3. More Election Integrity Issues

In our quest to find true election integrity I have two stories this week. One is concerning recent developments in uncovering election fraud in Michigan, which can be found here

The other is from Mesa County. This week the Mesa DA reported on the third report on the Mesa County election server, released last March. This is the same guy who threw the book at Clerk Peters with every possible charge he could dream up (most of which are absurdly over blown).

In this case he took the exact opposite approach and did everything he could to downplay any potential wrong doing with the irregularities demonstrated in the third report. You can watch his presentation to the county commissioners here.

After reviewing his presentation the first word that came to my mind was whitewash. Because the real question brought up in the third report is: what is happening within the Dominion election machines? The DA’s presentation focused on possible human error, but what he never answered was, how could this happen with the Dominion equipment on two different, back-to-back elections?

Further, when asked about the 29.000 files destroyed by Dominion’s software update (reported in the first report) he dismissed any possibility that there was any wrong doing there. His excuse was “…the files that were deleted were not election records. Colorado’s definition of elections records is very specific.” “No election records were deleted.” (This is at 65 minutes into his presentation)

Well, here is the statue: CRS 1-1-104(11) “Election records” includes accounting forms, certificates of registration, pollbooks, certificates of election, signature cards, all affidavits, voter applications, other voter lists and records, mail ballot return envelopes, voted ballots, unused ballots, spoiled ballots, and replacement ballots.

If this was a list of all the possible forms of election records it would say “Election records” are.., or “Election records” must be one of the following categories” but it does not. As a former lawmaker I can tell you that the word “includes” is to make it clear that this is not a complete list of all possible election records. None-the-less the DA insisted that election server log files and other relevant computer files of the election process cannot fit into the statutory definition of election records in Colorado.

The real truth is the Mesa DA does not want to entertain the possibility that Dominion and the Secretary of State have broken the law by destroying thousands of election records and so he simply declares it does not apply. 

I also found it interesting that toward the end of the presentation the DA’s assistant stated that the equipment was not connected to the internet, which drew a round of cynical laughter from the public in the room who obviously had read the second report that noted the equipment has dozens of wireless communication devices embedded in the Mesa County election equipment.

This supposed objective analysis of the the third report left far more questions than answers to the integrity of the election equipment Mesa County is being forced to use by the current Secretary of State. And the Mesa County district attorney is still doing all he can to obfuscate the issue. What we need is a complete and transparent analysis by competent third party specialists who are given full access to the equipment, the server drive data (before and after the “updates”) and all of the code for the Dominion election systems that handle our votes.  

I have asked the question before and I ask it again, why is Dominion hiding this vital information?

May 14, 2022

1. 2022 Session is Finally Over

2. Election Concerns in New Mexico


3. Join the Breakfast Club Zoom call every Monday Morning

————————————–

1. 2022 Session is Finally Over

657 bills were introduced in the 2022 Colorado general session. Including all of the resolutions the total was 717. On Monday the House worked on bills until 7:00 AM the next morning. This overnighter session was unprecedented (to my knowledge) and unnecessary, in my opinion. Early in the session the House did little to accelerate the process and by the final three days I am told hundreds of bills were still left to be decided. This rush at the end was a rookie mistake and  it reflects the fact that the legislature is now being run by rookies who either don’t understand the legislative process and/or don’t respect the time-tested process of law-making.

It will take me a while to process all that happened in the 2022 session,  but please note that all of the  “good” bills on my list were killed in committee, and the vast majority of big, bad bills are now law, or on their way to the governor’s desk for his signature. 

I said the following last week, but it bears repeating:

This list is a stark reminder that Polis has created in Colorado the most liberal, socialistic policies we have ever suffered under. He has tried to present himself as a moderate Democrat, but in reality he has fundamentally transformed our state government with radical policies that strip away our freedoms and set in place budgets that cannot be sustained, programs that put the government in charge of families, businesses, children, and every other aspect of our lives. 

It should also be noted that their “green” energy policies will bankrupt our economy by destroying our base energy sources and drive the cost of alternative energy way beyond what market forces would dictate if the government would stop these command and control policies.

And, the values he is forcing on our schools, young children and families is destroying the moral fiber of our state. They are rewriting history and bringing in a woke philosophy to every aspect of our culture. Do not accept these radical changes. Get involved and spread the word. 

Worst Bills

My really bad bill list includes:

HB-1025 SIGNED BY  GOVERNOR  eliminating tax credits and tax exemptions without a vote of the people, as required by TABOR
HB-1065 DIED ON CALENDAR changes the standard to allow “substantial risk” be a sole criteria for implementing a forced 72 hour mental health hold
HB-1086 SIGNED BY GOVERNOR prohibits open carry within 100 feet of a ballot box or polling center
HB-1259 PASSED SENATE PLV Expands Colorado’s welfare system with budget busting, unrealistic policies
HB-1269 PASSED SENATE PLV Regulate medical cost sharing plans
HB-1279 SIGNED BY GOVERNOR  Promote abortions and deny the humanity of unborn children
HB-1289 PASSED SENATE Gives Medicaid coverage to illegal aliens who are pregnant or under age 19
HB-1295 SENT TO THE GOVERNOR Creates a universal preschool program for the state of Colorado
HB-1355
 PASSED SENATE Huge recycling tax and new government program
HB-1362 PASSED SENATE Adopt “green” building codes statewide
HB-1414 PASSED SENATE sets up meals for all public school students, reduces income tax exemptions for incomes of more than $300.000 (to pay for the program), does require voter approval
SB-008 PASSED HOUSE Offers free college tuition to foster kids, which is not a bad idea, assuming there is money to pay for it, but this bill goes beyond that to also include a free college eduction for any teenager (13 and above) who is determined to have been abused or neglected, taken from home and placed with relatives for any amount of time. I see a perverse incentive as big as a barn door in this poorly constructed bill.
SB-138 DIED ON CALENDAR Reduce greenhouse gas emissions, more nonsensical, destructive government regulations aimed at banning, among other things, small gas powered tools.
SB-153 PASSED HOUSE PLV Require electronic voting equipment for all jurisdictions of over 1000 people, thus prohibiting a hand counting system, prohibits a county clerk from making a copy of election server drives, strips from canvassing boards the authority to de-certify an election. This bill puts into statute what the current Secretary of State has been acting like she already has the power to do today.
SB-163 PASSED HOUSE PLV This is a sleeper bill that could do a lot more damage than anyone realizes. It is concerning state government procurements, requiring “equity” in the contracts, which is the opposite of equality. In a word, this is dealing with reparations.
SB-175 DIED ON CALENDAR Outlaws holding a cell phone while driving. There are some exceptions, but the bottom line is you can be pulled over and cited if a policeman just sees you holding your phone.
SB-230 PASSED HOUSE PLV unionize county government employees
SB-233 PASSED HOUSE Obvious attempt to buy votes in November by accelerating TABOR refunds to September 30 of this year only, and send out checks to every “resident” who files a tax return and is over 18. It does not limit the refunds to citizens. Hmmm…

Dumb bill

HB-1134 is the dumbest bill. The world would not end if this became law, but is this really the purpose of government?
It defines, in detail, where, when and how a customer could be offered a plastic utensil and a single use bag of ketchup, mustard, etc..

HB-1134 LOST IN COMMITTEE.

Best Bills

Here are are the best bills I have found, the vast majority of which did not make it out of their first committee. BTW, I am not trying to be overly partisan here, but this is a list of Republican sponsored bills.

This is a good example of the way the majority party operates. They are very efficient in eliminating all bills that do not fit into their plan. And, since they make sure they all get killed in the first committee, very little debate and even fewer votes are taken on these bills which represent the values of millions of Colorado citizens.

HB-1015 LOST declares that off-label use of certain drugs (such as ivermectin) can be used as a treatment for COVID.
HB-1021 LOST, PLV reduces the state income tax rate to 4.4%.
HB-1033 LOST, PLV establishes constitutional carry for Colorado, meaning a citizen could carry a hand gun concealed, without a permit. 
HB-1047 LOST, PLV bans abortions, with a very limited list of exceptions.
HB-1048 DIED ON CALENDAR establishes a license plate including the national motto: “In God We Trust.” Curiously, the bill does not call it the national motto.
HB-1059 LOST, PLV will require a 2/3 majority vote in the House and Senate to establish or increase any fees.
HB-1062 LOST eliminates state sales tax for food purchased for use outside of in home use. Which, as I read the bill, means no more state sales tax on food purchased in restaurants. 
HB-1078 LOST, PLV require all voting systems to be fully certified
HB-1079 LOST, PLV bans abortions by declaring unborn children to be “persons’
HB-1084 LOST, PLV   jurors who are ineligible because of their citizenship or residence shall be removed from the voter lists
HB-1085 LOST, PLV require paper ballots to have security features to prevent any duplication of ballots
HB-1100 LOST, PLV prohibit COVID vaccination discrimination in the workplace
HB-1106 LOST, PLV allow concealed carry on school grounds
HB-1125 LOST, PLV formula to permanently lower the income tax rate 
HB-1129 DIED ON CALENDAR rebate 1.8 billion dollar tax surplus
HB-1130 LOST, PLV repeal sick leave mandates for companies of less than 16 employees
HB-1136 LOST, PLV require ultrasound demonstrations for sex education course
HB-1144 LOST, PLV recognize that natural immunity is at least the equivalent of vaccine immunity
HB-1147 LOST federal officials must get permission from local sheriff to execute an arrest or search warrant
HB-1163 LOST, PLV income tax deduction for medical expenses
HB-1200 LOST, PLV exemptions for COVID-19 vaccine requirements
HB-1201 LOST, PLV prohibit certain immunization requirements
HB-1203 LOST, educational tax credits
HB-1204 LOST significant election reforms
HB-1206 LOST, PLV prohibit teaching discrimination in public schools
HB-1207 LOST, PLV expand educational choice for low performing schools
HB-1236 LOST, PLV Parent’s Bill of Rights 
HB-1238 LOST, PLV Elected Officials Approve Epidemic Duties. I am including this on my good bill list because the title is an admirable goal. However, I have significant concerns with how the introduced version is worded. 
SB-039 LOST, PLV establish HOPE scholarship program – I still have some questions about this program, but for now it is on my good bill list
SB-063 LOST, PLV require compensation for takings from changes in land use laws
SB-093 LOST, PLV increase the senior and disabled veteran homestead exemption from $200,000 to $400,000 of home value

HJR-1021 LOST PLV Convention of States Article V Resolution
HJR-1022 LOST Concerning the impacts of COVID-19 on the people of Colorado

note: PLV means party-line vote

1. Trucker Convoy in Cheyenne on Sunday

-LATE BREAKING INFORMATION-

The Peoples Convoy was delayed in Wyoming due to high winds. They will not make it to Cheyenne until Monday. I will continue give more information as it becomes available.

-END OF LATE BREAKING INFORMATION-

Most of the world sat on the edge of their seats earlier this year as they followed live streams of the Canadian trucker convoy traveling from Vancouver to Ottawa to protest the extreme COVID measures of the Canadian government against its citizens, such as forbidding public transportation to the unvaccinated, arresting kids for ice skating outdoors without a mask, arresting pastors, policing extended home quarantines and lockdowns, and much, much more. Thousands of Canadian citizens lined the highways and poured into the streets to support the truckers and ask for their Charter freedoms back. Charter freedoms are similar to our Bill of Rights.

But Trudeau turned on his own citizens and refused to even speak with them about their concerns, choosing instead to call a national emergency, forcefully arrest peaceful protesters, steal their bank accounts, vandalize their trucks, and make it illegal to show them any support. People were even arrested for waving a Canadian flag or honking their car horn. 

Citizens from other countries around the world, such as Australia, New Zealand, France, and the UK, took inspiration from the heroic Canadians and their peaceful stand against tyranny. On February 23rd, an American convoy left from Adelanto Stadium in California to travel to Washington DC to protest the refusal of the Biden administration to drop the perpetual national state of emergency that Biden is using as a vehicle to expand his control of the American people.

After an exciting time in DC, The People’s Convoy headed to Sacramento, California to protest a list of 10 extreme COVID and pro-abortion bills. Following a quick trip up to rally in Olympia, Washington, those truckers still in the convoy are now making their way back to Washington DC. On Sunday, May 7th, the convoy will be making a stop at the GAS-N-GO/ Big D Oil Company, 2310 W Lincolnway, Cheyenne, Wyoming, before heading west on I-80 through Nebraska.

To get a glimpse of history and support these men and women on their freedom mission, visit their website at thepeoplesconvoy.org. There is not an exact time yet for their arrival in Cheyenne, but they are usually met by flag-waving crowds of patriots at each stop. You can follow live-streamers Sunday morning to watch their progress from Casper toward Cheyenne and gauge their approximate arrival time (probably sometime between 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM). Search Facebook or YouTube for “Trucker G” or “WYSIWIG TV.” Bring a flag to wave!


2. Danielle Nuschwanger Now Third Party Candidate

The governor’s race took a troubling turn as defeated Republican candidate, Danielle Nuschwanger, is now a third party candidate. I understand her frustration with how the voting was conducted at the state assembly, but to continue to run as a third party candidate is to become a spoiler, giving Polis a strong advantage in the November election. That is unfortunate. Polis has engineered the most radical changes in Colorado’s history. Well intentioned conservatives should not give him any help in this year’s election.

3. YouTube Censors Part of the 2021 RSCC Election Hearing

YouTube is telling me I have violated their community standards by giving the complete, uncut RSCC hearing on election issues, held in April of 2021, on the RSCC website. They haven’t removed all of the videos from the hearing, but it is a stark reminder that free speech is not a value for Google (who owns YouTube). More important to Google is “do no harm”…to their narrative.

They should take a lesson from Elon Musk.

4. Colorado Legislative Session Ends on Wednesday

With three working days left, 657 bills have now been introduced in the 2022 Colorado general session and, according to one bill tracking service, scores of bills are still lined up for votes and debates. Here is a brief overview of some of the most significant bills and their progress. Please note that there are many other bills that grow government with new programs, higher fees and more regulations on the people of Colorado. I chose to not list every one, just the bills that have the most impact on the people of Colorado. 

This list is a stark reminder that Polis has created in Colorado the most liberal, socialistic policies we have ever suffered under. He has tried to present himself as a moderate Democrat, but in reality he has fundamentally transformed our state government with radical policies that strip away our freedoms and set in place budgets that cannot be sustained, programs that put the government in charge of families, businesses, children, and every other aspect of our lives. 

It should also be noted that their “green” energy policies will bankrupt our economy by destroying our base energy sources and drive the cost of alternative energy way beyond what market forces would dictate if the government would stop these command and control policies.

Finally, the values he is forcing on our schools, young children and families is destroying the moral fiber of our state. They are rewriting history and bringing in a woke philosophy to every aspect of our culture. Do not accept these radical changes. Get involved and spread the word. Polis and his party must be voted out of office!

HB-1295 SENT TO THE GOVERNOR Creates a universal preschool program for the state of Colorado
HB-1355
 PASSED SENATE COMMITTEE Huge recycling tax and new government program
HB-1362 PASSED SENATE COMMITTEE PLV Adopt “green” building codes statewide
HB-1414 PASSED HOUSE PLV (except two Republicans) sets up meals for all public school students, reduces income tax exemptions for incomes of more than $300.000 (to pay for the program), does require voter approval
SB-008 PASSED HOUSE Offers free college tuition to foster kids, which is not a bad idea, assuming there is money to pay for it, but this bill goes beyond that to also include a free college eduction for any teenager (13 and above) who is determined to have been abused or neglected, taken from home and placed with relatives for any amount of time. I see a perverse incentive as big as a barn door in this poorly constructed bill.
SB-138 PASSED HOUSE COMMITTEE PLV Reduce greenhouse gas emissions, more nonsensical, destructive government regulations aimed at banning, among other things, small gas powered tools.
SB-153 PASSED HOUSE SECOND READING Require electronic voting equipment for all jurisdictions of over 1000 people, thus prohibiting a hand counting system, prohibits a county clerk from making a copy of election server drives, strips from canvassing boards the authority to de-certify an election. This bill puts into statute what the current Secretary of State has been acting like she already has the power to do today.
SB-163 PASSED HOUSE SECOND READING This is a sleeper bill that could do a lot more damage than anyone realizes. It is concerning state government procurements, requiring “equity” in the contracts, which is the opposite of equality. In a word, this is dealing with reparations.
SB-175 PASSED HOUSE COMMITTEE Outlaws holding a cell phone while driving. There are some exceptions, but the bottom line is you can be pulled over and cited if a policeman just sees you holding your phone.
SB-230 PASSED HOUSE COMMITTEE PLV unionize county government employees
SB-233 PASSED HOUSE SECOND READING Obvious attempt to buy votes in November by accelerating TABOR refunds to September 30 of this year only, and send out checks to every “resident” who files a tax return and is over 18. It does not limit the refunds to citizens. Hmmm…

Dumb bill

HB-1134 is the dumbest bill. The world would not end if this became law, but is this really the purpose of government?
It defines, in detail, where, when and how a customer could be offered a plastic utensil and a single use bag of ketchup, mustard, etc..

HB-1134 LOST IN COMMITTEE.

Best Bills

Here are are the best bills I have found, the vast majority of which did not make it out of their first committee. BTW, I am not trying to be overly partisan here, but this is a list of Republican sponsored bills.

This is a good example of the way the majority party operates. They are very efficient in eliminating all bills that do not fit into their plan. And, since they make sure they all get killed in the first committee, very little debate and even fewer votes are taken on these bills which represent the values of millions of Colorado citizens.

HB-1015 LOST declares that off-label use of certain drugs (such as ivermectin) can be used as a treatment for COVID.
HB-1021 LOST, PLV reduces the state income tax rate to 4.4%.
HB-1033 LOST, PLV establishes constitutional carry for Colorado, meaning a citizen could carry a hand gun concealed, without a permit. 
HB-1047 LOST, PLV bans abortions, with a very limited list of exceptions.
HB-1048 PASSED FINANCE COMMITTEE establishes a license plate including the national motto: “In God We Trust.” Curiously, the bill does not call it the national motto.
HB-1059 LOST, PLV will require a 2/3 majority vote in the House and Senate to establish or increase any fees.
HB-1062 LOST eliminates state sales tax for food purchased for use outside of in home use. Which, as I read the bill, means no more state sales tax on food purchased in restaurants. 
HB-1078 LOST, PLV require all voting systems to be fully certified
HB-1079 LOST, PLV bans abortions by declaring unborn children to be “persons’
HB-1084 LOST, PLV   jurors who are ineligible because of their citizenship or residence shall be removed from the voter lists
HB-1085 LOST, PLV require paper ballots to have security features to prevent any duplication of ballots
HB-1100 LOST, PLV prohibit COVID vaccination discrimination in the workplace
HB-1106 LOST, PLV allow concealed carry on school grounds
HB-1125 LOST, PLV formula to permanently lower the income tax rate 
HB-1129 PASSED FIRST COMMITTEE rebate 1.8 billion dollar tax surplus
HB-1130 LOST, PLV repeal sick leave mandates for companies of less than 16 employees
HB-1136 LOST, PLV require ultrasound demonstrations for sex education course
HB-1144 LOST, PLV recognize that natural immunity is at least the equivalent of vaccine immunity
HB-1147 LOST federal officials must get permission from local sheriff to execute an arrest or search warrant
HB-1163 LOST, PLV income tax deduction for medical expenses
HB-1200 LOST, PLV exemptions for COVID-19 vaccine requirements
HB-1201 LOST, PLV prohibit certain immunization requirements
HB-1203 LOST, educational tax credits
HB-1204 LOST significant election reforms
HB-1206 LOST, PLV prohibit teaching discrimination in public schools
HB-1207 LOST, PLV expand educational choice for low performing schools
HB-1236 LOST, PLV Parent’s Bill of Rights 
HB-1238 LOST, PLV Elected Officials Approve Epidemic Duties. I am including this on my good bill list because the title is an admirable goal. However, I have significant concerns with how the introduced version is worded. 
SB-039 LOST, PLV establish HOPE scholarship program – I still have some questions about this program, but for now it is on my good bill list
SB-063 LOST, PLV require compensation for takings from changes in land use laws
SB-093 LOST, PLV increase the senior and disabled veteran homestead exemption from $200,000 to $400,000 of home value

HJR-1021 SCHEDULED FOR HEARING ON MAY 9 Convention of States Article V Resolution
HJR-1022 Concerning the impacts of COVID-19 on the people of Colorado

1. Unionize County Government

2. Biden’s “Ministry of Truth”

3. RSCC Planning for 2023

4. 649 Bills in Legislature

5. Join the Breakfast Club Zoom call every Monday Morning

————————————–

1. Unionize County Government

Here we go, SB-230 is a big bill that the Ds dropped in the Senate this week that will revolutionize county government, and not for the better. If there is a strategy for their procrastinating until the last two weeks with hundreds of bills, it is to muddy the water with so many issues that they can pull out some of the worst ideas and get them passed before anybody can mount a reasonable defense.

SB-230 allows county employees to unionize. What? Where is the current problem? Have we been hearing about counties abusing their employees? Abusing citizens with too many programs, laws and regulations that harass and abuse citizens, yes, but I never heard of any abuse of power over county employees.

SB-230 will skyrocket the expenses of government and lock in the systems and programs that already drive a top heavy bureaucracy  in county government. In the Senate the president and majority leader are the sponsors, with all other Democrat senators co-sponsoring the legislation. In the House the prime sponsor is the majority leader. This big, bad bill is on steroids and is sure to pass. We can only hope and pray that the citizens of Colorado will “throw the bums out” next November with a big team of conservatives that will repeal this awful bill before it does much damage.

2. Biden’s “Ministry of Truth”

They are calling it the “Disinformation Governance Board,” but George Orwell called it the “Ministry of Truth” back in 1949 in his prescient  book Nineteen Eighty-FourNo kidding, the latest idea is for the Department of Homeland Security to have an official agency to determine what is true and what is false. As big tech and the current administration have proved many times, they are very good at spinning propaganda, but their track record on accuracy is very poor.

AND…

“Congress shall make no law… abridging the freedom of speech…” Did anyone  care to consider the First Amendment before launching this ministry of truth? 

These facts are so clear and self-evident that I find it hard to say much more about this blatant effort to twist the truth with the power of big brother (another idea Orwell saw very clearly 70+ years ago).

As I noted in the first story in this letter: We can only hope and pray that the citizens of Colorado will “throw the bums out” next November (and the administration in the White House in 2024).

3. RSCC Planning for 2023

I don’t often write about the activities of the Republican Study Committee of Colorado, but here is a good example of our efforts. Last Thursday we met at a breakfast meeting at the capitol. The subject was: “What can we accomplish in 2023?”

We looked at several scenarios, from our current political minority in the House, Senate and governor’s office, to a complete change of leadership. As is apparent in this photo, everyone was fully engaged in preparing to be as effective as possible next year. The discussion was upbeat as we expect some changes next November and are looking forward to taking a lead in defending the inalienable rights of Colorado’s citizens.


4. 649 Bills in Legislature

With less than two weeks left, 649 bills have now been introduced in the 2022 Colorado general session and nearly half of them are still lined up for votes and debates. I have never seen such a backlog so late in the session. Here is a brief overview of some of the most significant bills and their progress.

Worst Bills

Right now my really bad bill list includes:

HB-1025 SENT TO THE GOVERNOR  eliminating tax credits and tax exemptions without a vote of the people, as required by TABOR
HB-1065 PASSED HOUSE COMMITTEE PLV changes the standard to allow “substantial risk” be a sole criteria for implementing a forced 72 hour mental health hold
HB-1086 SIGNED BY GOVERNOR prohibits open carry within 100 feet of a ballot box or polling center
HB-1259 PASSED HOUSE PLV Expands Colorado’s welfare system with budget busting, unrealistic policies
HB-1269 PASSED SENATE COMMITTEE PLV Regulate medical cost sharing plans
HB-1279 SIGNED BY GOVERNOR  Promote abortions and deny the humanity of unborn children
HB-1289 PASSED HOUSE PLV Gives Medicaid coverage to illegal aliens who are pregnant or under age 19

1. Evidence of Election Fraud Mounts

2. 2000 Mules

3. 623 Bills in Legislature

4. Join the Breakfast Club Zoom call every Monday Morning

————————————–

1. Evidence of Election Fraud Mounts

As I recently reported on my news feed, the evidence for significant election fraud in the 2020 election continues to mount, with a big increase of hard facts being reported in the last few weeks, and much more will become public with the Documentary 2000 Mules in early May. And yet, far too many political operatives, on both sides of the aisle, insist there is nothing to see, particularly here in Colorado. 

My observation is that those who don’t see anything have been refusing to look. Last Wednesday I spoke with a group in Loveland who have looked and they are convinced there is much that needs to be better understood and fixed, BEFORE another election is conducted. And yet, the Democrats (and the Colorado County Clerks Association) are urging the passage of SB-153, which will make Colorado elections even more veiled in secrecy and the bill strips away authority from the county clerks, county commissioners and county canvassing boards.

My big question is, why are they trying to hide everything? Why do they refuse to allow serious third party examinations of the equipment, software and procedures? If Colorado is truly the “gold standard” of elections, in the face of so much growing evidence to the contrary, Colorado citizens deserve full transparency.

But don’t take my word for it, take the time to check it out for yourself. I have compiled a list of resources that you can access from your computer. These are video and written reports that document the evidence of election irregularities in Colorado and across the nation. Click here for the links.

BTW, if any other groups would like to have me present my talk on election integrity (and the lack thereof), I would be happy to discuss possible slots in my calendar.

2. 2000 Mules

The release of this documentary is scheduled for May 2nd at selected theaters across the nation, including several locations in Colorado. It will also be available on DVD and an online format. For more information click here.

April 16, 2022

There is much to follow in the political world here in Colorado but I trust you will focus on Resurrection Sunday this Weekend. Without the Resurrection there is no hope for our world. However, with the reality of God’s saving grace we can be confident that our work in this life can be filled with joy, purpose and progress!

1. Universal Preschool in Colorado

2. Homeschool Day at the Capitol

3. Western Conservative Summit

4. 582 Bills in Legislature

5. Join the Breakfast Club Zoom call every Monday Morning

————————————–

1. Universal Preschool in Colorado

The legislature has passed HB-1295, which is now awaiting the governor’s signature, it is expected that he will sign the bill into law. This is a capstone to the governor’s attempt to push government influence on children down to the first few years of life. It’s proponents brag that it will also allow more parents to leave their young children and go back into the work pool.

This is a dramatic shift of state policy that puts the state more  in charge of molding children into their image and making Colorado families much more dependent on government handouts for their daily lives. Rather than finding ways to make life in general and daycare in particular more affordable through fewer regulations, Polis would prefer to tax the citizens more and then return a stipend in the form of subsidies which creates more government control of individuals and families. This is one more troubling step toward the “soft” tyranny of socialism.

For more details on this bill click here.

2. Homeschool Day at the Capitol

On Friday, April 22 the annual Homeschool Day at the Capitol will be held. Since 1994 hundreds of Colorado citizens have gathered at our state’s capitol building during the legislative session to celebrate this educational option that is flourishing. Everyone is encouraged to attend, particularly at the noon rally on the West steps. For more information go to the website of Christian Home Educators of Colorado.

3. Western Conservative Summit

Coming soon, this in-depth event for conservatives from across the Western United States will be held on June 3-4,. The early bird registration ends this Friday, April 22, so don’t delay. Click here for more information and to register for the Summit, or for the all-week youth conference. This year the youth conference will be held in conjunction with Patriot Academy and Summit Ministries.

I am excited to be part of this significant event and hope to see you there this year. BTW, it will be held at a new venue, the Gaylord Rockies Resort and Convention Center.


4. 582 Bills in Legislature

582 bills have now been introduced in the 2022 Colorado general session. Be aware that there are dozens of new spending programs and new regulations for citizens and businesses which I am not listing in my really bad bill list.

Worst Bills

Right now my really bad bill list includes:

HB-1025 PASSED SENATE  eliminating tax credits and tax exemptions without a vote of the people, as required by TABOR
HB-1065 PASSED HOUSE COMMITTEE PLV changes the standard to allow “substantial risk” be a sole criteria for implementing a forced 72 hour mental health hold
HB-1086 SIGNED BY GOVERNOR prohibits open carry within 100 feet of a ballot box or polling center
HB-1259 PASSED HOUSE COMMITTEE Expands Colorado’s welfare system with budget busting, unrealistic policies
HB-1269 PASSED HOUSE COMMITTEE PLV Regulate medical cost sharing plans
HB-1279 SIGNED BY GOVERNOR  Promote abortions and deny the humanity of unborn children
HB-1289 PASSED HOUSE COMMITTEE PLV Gives Medicaid coverage to illegal aliens who are pregnant or under age 19
HB-1295 PASSED SENATE Creates a universal preschool program for the state of Colorado
HB-1355
 PASSED HOUSE COMMITTEE PLV Huge recycling tax and new government program
HB-1362 PASSED HOUSE COMMITTEE PLV Adopt “green” building codes statewide
SB-008 PASSED HOUSE COMMITTEE Offers free college tuition to foster kids, which is not a bad idea, assuming there is money to pay for it, but this bill goes beyond that to also include a free college eduction for any teenager (13 and above) who is determined to have been abused or neglected, taken from home and placed with relatives for any amount of time. I see a perverse incentive as big as a barn door in this poorly constructed bill.
SB-138 PASSED COMMITTEE Reduce greenhouse gas emissions, more nonsensical, destructive government regulations aimed at banning, among other things, small gas powered tools.
SB-153 PASSED SENATE Require electronic voting equipment for all jurisdictions of over 1000 people, thus prohibiting a hand counting system, prohibits a county clerk from making a copy of election server drives, strips from canvassing boards the authority to de-certify an election. This bill puts into statute what the current Secretary of State has been acting like she already has the power to do today.
SB-175 PASSED SENATE SECOND READING PASSED SENATE COMMITTEE Outlaws holding a cell phone while driving. There are some exceptions, but the bottom line is you can be pulled over and cited if a policeman just sees you holding your phone.

Dumb bill

HB-1134 is the dumbest bill. The world would not end if this became law, but is this really the purpose of government?
It defines, in detail, where, when and how a customer could be offered a plastic utensil and a single use bag of ketchup, mustard, etc..

HB-1134 LOST IN COMMITTEE.

Best Bills

Here are are the best bills I have found, so far (that probably won’t make it out of the first committee). BTW, I am not trying to be overly partisan here, but this is a list of Republican sponsored bills.

HB-1015 LOST declares that off-label use of certain drugs (such as ivermectin) can be used as a treatment for COVID.
HB-1021 LOST, PLV reduces the state income tax rate to 4.4%.
HB-1033 LOST, PLV establishes constitutional carry for Colorado, meaning a citizen could carry a hand gun concealed, without a permit. 
HB-1047 LOST, PLV bans abortions, with a very limited list of exceptions.
HB-1048 PASSED FINANCE COMMITTEE establishes a license plate including the national motto: “In God We Trust.” Curiously, the bill does not call it the national motto.
HB-1059 LOST, PLV will require a 2/3 majority vote in the House and Senate to establish or increase any fees.
HB-1062 eliminates state sales tax for food purchased for use outside of in home use. Which, as I read the bill, means no more state sales tax on food purchased in restaurants. 
HB-1078 LOST, PLV require all voting systems to be fully certified
HB-1079 LOST, PLV bans abortions by declaring unborn children to be “persons’
HB-1084 LOST, PLV   jurors who are ineligible because of their citizenship or residence shall be removed from the voter lists

HB-1206 LOST, PLV prohibit teaching discrimination in public schools
HB-1207 LOST, PLV expand educational choice for low performing schools
HB-1236 LOST, PLV Parent’s Bill of Rights 
HB-1238 LOST, PLV Elected Officials Approve Epidemic Duties I am including this on my good bill list because the title is an admirable goal. However, I have significant concerns with how the introduced version is worded. I hope the sponsors will correct these problems, should the bill move forward
SB-039 LOST, PLV establish HOPE scholarship program – I still have some questions about this program, but for now it is on my good bill list
SB-063 LOST, PLV require compensation for takings from changes in land use laws
SB-093 LOST, PLV increase the senior and disabled veteran homestead exemption from $200,000 to $400,000 of home value

Lundberg Report, Part II -Here is “the rest of the story” for the first week of April.

1. Republican State Assembly

2. 564 Bills in Legislature

3. Join the Breakfast Club Zoom call every Monday Morning

————————————–

1. Republican State Assembly

On Saturday. April 9, the Republican State Assembly was held. With many contenders for the governor and US Senate races, it was a busy field.
Ron Hanks came out on top for the senate race, with no one else getting the required 30% to be on the primary ballot. One person has petitioned on, so there will still be a race in the primary for US Senate.

For governor Greg Lopez came out on top and Heidi Ganahl also qualified for the primary, giving a two way race in the Republican gubernatorial primary. In the Secretary of State race Tina Peters got over 60%, and her opponent, Mike O’Donnell garnered the rest of the votes, both qualifying for the primary. There is a third contestant who petitioned on for the primary. The attorney general race also ended up with two candidates. All other offices only had one nominee.

Election integrity was clearly the main concern for the majority of delegates at the assembly and this was a big factor in the outcome of most of the assembly choices. Most notable on this issue, and the first place winners in their races, were Ron Hanks and Tina Peters, who have both championed the importance of election integrity throughout their campaigns, 

One contention for that day, that was related, was the use of electronic voting devices for the assembly, rather than paper ballots. A proposal was brought forward calling for paper ballots, but the chair of the party was successful in squelching that idea by not allowing any discussion on the amendment. This prevented the delegate from explaining that he actually had the paper ballots all ready to be used for the voting.

I was severely disappointed in how the chair handled this dispute, using the power of her gavel to rule over the delegates, rather than fairly allowing a debate, which would have given the delegates enough information to make an informed decision. I suggest she get in step with the active members of the party or step aside and let someone take that role who is willing to govern the party according to the conscience of the party members. One way she could make some amends would be to follow the resolution unanimously passed at the state central committee last September and allow the state party to join in the effort to challenge the open primary in Federal court.

I am a patient man, but my patience is wearing thin, for too many party leaders are refusing to admit that our Colorado election system has many vulnerabilities and is veiled in far too much secrecy. Very few citizens have much confidence in the integrity of Colorado’s election system. It is time to lay this out on the table and fix it, not hide under the table and hope it will go away.

BTW, have you looked at SB-153? The Democrats are not backing away from this issue, they are doubling down, cloaking our broken system even more and stripping away from county clerks direct authority to protect and preserve election records. Republicans need to lead with this issue and make the Democrats own their complicity with this affront to our republic.

Particularly in an election year, this is an issue that cannot be ignored.

2. 564 Bills in Legislature

564 bills have now been introduced in the 2022 Colorado general session. Be aware that there are dozens of new spending programs and new regulations for citizens and businesses which I am not listing in my really bad bill list.

Lundberg Weekly Report, Part I

I am publishing this week’s report in two parts. I usually publish on Saturday, in the early morning. As the Republican State Assembly, where several candidates will be selected for the primary election in June will be determined later today, I will publish the second half of this weekly report later this weekend. Here is what I have to report on in other matters from this past week, and the reminder of the normal Zoom call on Monday.

1. Election Integrity Rally at Capitol

2. First Round of Open Primary Challenge Lost

3. Join the Breakfast Club Zoom call every Monday Morning

———————————-
1. Election Integrity Rally at Capitol

Mike Lindell Speaking at Election Integrity Rally

Last Tuesday hundreds of citizens attended a rally for election integrity at the Capitol. The main speakers were Mike Lindell, and Tina Peters. The three hour event not only drew hundreds of election integrity supporters, it also drew more media cameras than I have seen in many years at the state capitol.

As I reported on last week, the evidence continues to grow of voter fraud across the country. The principle subject for this rally was the third report from expert studies of the Mesa County election server records. Also on Tuesday another film documenting the voter manipulations was released, called Rigged: The Zuckerberg Funded Plot to Defeat Donald Trump.

This film digs into the details of how Zuckerberg’s $400,000,000 was spent to put his thumb on the outcome of the 2020 presidential race in several key swing states. Not mentioned in the film, but it should be noted that Pam Anderson, a “Republican” running for Colorado secretary of state today at the state assembly, is a member of the board for the non-profit that was responsible for distributing about $330,000,000 of Zuckerberg’s money.


2. First Round of Open Primary Challenge Lost
Late Friday afternoon a federal judge issued his opinion on the court challenge to the open primary system in Colorado. We lost this round, which was what we expected when we saw which judge had been selected for the case. This was a preliminary hearing considering standing and Griswold’s motions to dismiss the case. This judge ruled there is no constitutional harm in forcing Colorado citizens who are members of a major political party to allow more ballots to be given to non-party members than party members. 

As I said before, this was not a big surprise, as this judge did all he could to rationalize away the self-evident facts that this policy violates Colorado citizens’ rights to freedom of association, a clearly established First Amendment principle. So we lost round one, but we are not down for the count. We do need Colorado citizens to help us get to the appeal process to continue this battle, because this is a war we must win if both Republican and Democratic parties are to have the right to select their candidates for the general elections.

____________________________________

1. Election Integrity Issues

So much is coming out nearly everyday, it is hard to keep up with all the new developments. More and more reports and studies are being made public with evidence of widespread fraud in the 2020 election. In addition, the deniers of these obvious problems with our election systems continue to insist there is no problem and they continue to refuse to allow any transparency in the system.

If there is nothing to hide, why do they insist on hiding everything? Here in Colorado the majority party is now rushing through a bill (SB-153) to make it illegal for county clerks to do their job to protect the elections and preserve the records. The bill consolidates all of the authority into the Secretary of State’s office. Once again, what is there to hide? Why do they not want to let clerks to fulfill their constitutional duties as locally elected officials?

One clerk did do her job. Tina Peters, from Mesa County, and now she is being harassed and maligned by those who refuse to face the evidence that elections have been corrupted at every level. Voter registration lists are bloated, ballots are handed out like candy. Ballot harvesting is rampant, the electronic machinery counting the ballots is fraught with suspicious results, and the electronic and software systems have proven vulnerabilities. All these facts are well known, yet the entire system is still held under a veil of secrecy, behind doors locked from the citizens and the cyber experts.

These issues will be addressed at a rally for election integrity on Tuesday, April 5 at the state capitol. The rally goes from noon to 3 PM. Several speakers will cover the issue, including Tina Peters (who is now running for Secretary of State) and a national champion for fixing our elections, Mike Lindell.

To keep this as brief as I can, I close this article with some links that go into the details of the problems and the evidence that the only “big lie” being promulgated is from those who deny we have a big problem with our elections that must be faced and fixed.

2. Regent University Law School’s Conference on Global Governance

On March 29 Regent University’s law school hosted an online conference on the rise of global government. This informative, in-depth analysis is over six hours of presentations exploring the rise of global government. Throughout the world, individual liberties and freedom are being lost as authoritarianism rises.

This is a long presentation, but I assure you it will be time well spent. It is also broken down into several smaller segments. They cover very significant issues which are important to everyone who values their freedoms. To view the program segments click here.


3. Huge Recycling Tax and New Government Program

Just introduced this week, HB-1355 is a huge recycling tax and new government program. This bill, if it becomes law, will create a huge bureaucracy and puts in place a hidden tax on “producers” of the recyclable products. The tax is euphemistically called “producer responsibility dues.” Wow, the lengths they go to to not call a tax a tax!

This 50+ page bill goes on to create a new government program, run by a “non-profit” organization that will apparently determine what it costs to recycle everything and tax the “producers” for those costs. BTW, a producer is not just the manufacturer, it also includes the distributors of these products. This sounds like the paint fee we all pay to recycle paint we buy, which never gets recycled because we use the paint for its intended purpose, on our walls. It is the paint fee monster on steroids. 

I hope the legislature will kill this monster before it ends up as another money and freedom sucking beast haunting all of the citizens of Colorado for all of their remaining days.

4. 549 Bills in Legislature

549 bills have now been introduced in the 2022 Colorado general session. Be aware that there are dozens of new spending programs and new regulations for citizens and businesses which I am not listing in my really bad bill list.

Worst Bills

Right now my really bad bill list includes:

HB-1025 PASSED SENATE COMMITTEE  eliminating tax credits and tax exemptions without a vote of the people, as required by TABOR
HB-1065 PASSED HOUSE COMMITTEE PLV changes the standard to allow “substantial risk” be a sole criteria for implementing a forced 72 hour mental health hold
HB-1086 PASSED SENATE PLV prohibits open carry within 100 feet of a ballot box or polling center
HB-1259 Expands Colorado’s welfare system with budget busting, unrealistic policies
HB-1269 Regulate medical cost sharing plans
HB-1279 PASSED SENATE PLV  Promote abortions and deny the humanity of unborn children
HB-1289 PASSED HOUSE COMMITTEE PLV Gives Medicaid coverage to illegal aliens who are pregnant or under age 19
HB-1295 PASSED HOUSE Creates a universal preschool program for the state of Colorado

-New Addition to the worst bill list-
HB-1355
 Huge recycling tax and new government program

SB-008 PASSED SENATE Offers free college tuition to foster kids, which is not a bad idea, assuming there is money to pay for it, but this bill goes beyond that to also include a free college eduction for any teenager (13 and above) who is determined to have been abused or neglected, taken from home and placed with relatives for any amount of time. I see a perverse incentive as big as a barn door in this poorly constructed bill.
SB-138 PASSED COMMITTEE Reduce greenhouse gas emissions, more nonsensical, destructive government regulations aimed at banning, among other things, small gas powered tools.
SB-153 PASSED SENATE Require electronic voting equipment for all jurisdictions of over 1000 people, thus prohibiting a hand counting system, prohibits a county clerk from making a copy of election server drives, strips from canvassing boards the authority to de-certify an election. This bill puts into statute what the current Secretary of State has been acting like she already has the power to do today.

-New Addition to the worst bill list-
SB-175
 Outlaws holding a cell phone while driving. There are some exceptions, but the bottom line is you can be pulled over and cited if a policeman just sees you holding your phone.

Dumb bill

HB-1134 is the dumbest bill. The world would not end if this became law, but is this really the purpose of government?
It defines, in detail, where, when and how a customer could be offered a plastic utensil and a single use bag of ketchup, mustard, etc..

HB-1134 LOST IN COMMITTEE.

Best Bills

Here are are the best bills I have found, so far (that probably won’t make it out of the first committee). BTW, I am not trying to be overly partisan here, but this is a list of Republican sponsored bills.

HB-1015 LOST declares that off-label use of certain drugs (such as ivermectin) can be used as a treatment for COVID.
HB-1021 LOST, PLV reduces the state income tax rate to 4.4%.

HB-1047 LOST, PLV bans abortions, with a very limited list of exceptions.
HB-1048 PASSED FINANCE COMMITTEE establishes a license plate including the national motto: “In God We Trust.” Curiously, the bill does not call it the national motto.
HB-1059 LOST, PLV will require a 2/3 majority vote in the House and Senate to establish or increase any fees.
HB-1062 eliminates state sales tax for food purchased for use outside of in home use. Which, as I read the bill, means no more state sales tax on food purchased in restaurants. 
HB-1078 LOST, PLV require all voting systems to be fully certified
HB-1079 LOST, PLV bans abortions by declaring unborn children to be “persons’
HB-1084 LOST, PLV   jurors who are ineligible because of their citizenship or residence shall be removed from the voter lists

HB-1147 LOST federal officials must get permission from local sheriff to execute an arrest or search warrant
HB-1163 LOST, PLV income tax deduction for medical expenses

HB-1204 LOST significant election reforms
HB-1206 LOST, PLV prohibit teaching discrimination in public schools

HB-1236 LOST, PLV Parent’s Bill of Rights 
HB-1238 LOST, PLV Elected Officials Approve Epidemic Duties I am including this on my good bill list because the title is an admirable goal. However, I have significant concerns with how the introduced version is worded. I hope the sponsors will correct these problems, should the bill move forward
SB-039 LOST, PLV establish HOPE scholarship program – I still have some questions about this program, but for now it is on my good bill list
SB-063 LOST, PLV require compensation for takings from changes in land use laws
SB-093 LOST, PLV increase the senior and disabled veteran homestead exemption from $200,000 to $400,000 of home value

note: PLV means party-line vote

____________________________________

1. Election Fraud in Colorado and Across the Nation

Because of late breaking information concerning election fraud, both here in Colorado and elsewhere, I am accelerating this week’s edition of the Lundberg Report.

The biggest story is the third report on the Mesa County elections in 2020 and the Grand Junction municipal election in the spring of 2021. This report gives clear evidence of vote manipulation by the electronic voting equipment. It shows how the system created two data sets of votes, and then the Secretary of State ordered the drives be wiped clean with what they called a “Trusted Build” software update. When the clerk and recorder, Tina Peters, followed through with her responsibility of preserving the election records by making an image of the server before the update, she was harassed, removed as the election official and charged with several highly questionable charges. 

Now the evidence is in and it vindicates Tina Peters and should put the current Secretary of State under investigation of destroying election records and election fraud. …That is what should happen, however, with the obvious corruption of common sense and the rule of law today, it is yet to be seen if this substantial evidence will actually result in a serious investigation into the election system in Colorado and the players that have been promoting and/or defending this fraud.

To read the report for yourself click here.

In Wisconsin today it was reported that well over 100,000 mail in ballots were produced through ballot “trafficking,” not delivered to drop boxes by voters, but rather, people hired to dump huge quantities of ballots into several drop boxes. For that story click here. For more information on this technique, click here for the trailer of the soon to be released documentary on this scandal.

At the Colorado Capitol the Senate concluded their second reading debate on what I am calling the election cloaking bill, SB-153. This bill will consolidate all of the power over elections into the Secretary of State’s office. I call it a cloaking bill, as it will hide the election process from the people through the severe restrictions established by the Secretary of State.

For more information on SB-153 please look at last week’s report, listed below.

2. Extreme Abortion Bill Passes on Party-line Votes

After over 60 hours of debate and testimony, HB-1279 , the extreme abortion bill passed both houses on strict party lines. It is now on the governor’s desk.

5. 499 Bills in Legislature

499 bills have now been introduced in the 2022 Colorado general session. Be aware that there are dozens of new spending programs and new regulations for citizens and businesses which I am not listing in my really bad bill list.

HB-1295 PASSED HOUSE SECOND READING Creates a universal preschool program for the state of Colorado
SB-008 PASSED SENATE SECOND READING Offers free college tuition to foster kids, which is not a bad idea, assuming there is money to pay for it, but this bill goes beyond that to also include a free college eduction for any teenager (13 and above) who is determined to have been abused or neglected, taken from home and placed with relatives for any amount of time. I see a perverse incentive as big as a barn door in this poorly constructed bill.
SB-138 PASSED COMMITTEE Reduce greenhouse gas emissions, more nonsensical, destructive government regulations aimed at banning, among other things, small gas powered tools.

____________________________________
1. SB-153 Attacks Colorado’s Election Integrity 

Election integrity is under attackSB-153 is the left’s next desperate move to hide the election system from the voters and to keep Mesa County Clerk, Tina Peters out of the race for Colorado Secretary of State. 

SB-153 is designed to punish Mesa county clerk Tina Peters, make sure no county clerk can ever question the Secretary of State again, and it removes legitimate and necessary authority from county clerks, county commissioners and canvass boards. 

SB-153 is a bold power grab which consolidates virtually all election authority into the secretary of state’s office and creates an even darker veil over the election process. It is the antithesis of free, fair and transparent elections.

Click here for a more detailed analysis of this very dangerous bill. The analysis was prepared by retired attorney Maurice Emmer.

I strongly believe SB-153 is the most dangerous bill introduced this session and in light of their abortion bill (HB-1279), that is saying lot. My rationale is that as bad as 1279 is, it really doesn’t change most of the current policy for abortions in Colorado. But SB-153 will take away most of the authority from county clerks, county commissioners and canvas boards for elections in Colorado. Centralizing all of this power and authority in the Secretary of State’s office strips away power from our local elected officials and therefore from We the People. 

We need election transparency. SB-153 is a blackout on election transparency and election integrity. 153 is the latest version of the election fraud act.

Also recently released is a report on an extensive survey of Colorado voters’ participation in the 2020 election. The report shows about 8% of the voters had serious discrepancies in what the voting records indicated and what the actual voters reported. The report can be found here.

2. Extreme Abortion Bill Moves Forward

Last Saturday the very principle of defending our God-given, inalienable right to life was in the main ring and on the ropes at the Colorado State Capitol. I joined several hundred supporters of life in opposition to HB-1279 on the West steps of the Capitol while the House Republicans wrapped up their debate on the bill, which had been going non-stop for over 24 hours! 

Pro-life Rally with House Members who just completed 24 hours of debate.

In contrast to these warriors for life were a few advocates for the bill who stood outside of our rally circle constantly yelling obscenities and running sirens, non-stop, through portable bullhorns. They gave us a constant reminder that those who defend abortion have nothing but irrational, perverted chaos to defend their position.

Including the committee hearing, second reading and third reading debates, over 40 hours were spent in the House on this one bill. That is a record for the Colorado legislature.

I say defending life was “on the ropes” because on the House floor the majority party passed this despicable piece of legislation with a strict party-line vote and then they openly celebrated their ugly victory on the House floor. 

The siren wielding, obscenely undressed haranguers outside and the celebrating House members inside reminded me of the description C.S. Lewis gave of a rabble assembled in his book “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” when the lion, Aslan was sacrificed on the Stone Table. If you don’t remember the scene, look it up in chapter 14.

HB-1279 is now on a fast track the Senate.

3. Challenge to Open Primary

As I reported a fewweeks ago, the federal lawsuit against the open primary was filed in federal court and now the long and tedious process of the court is underway. This is a much needed cure for a very bad policy for Colorado elections, but not everyone agrees and we are getting some opposition,  even from some prominent Republicans. This is despite the fact that the state central committee voted overwhelmingly (there may have been one dissenting vote) in favor of the resolution calling for the federal lawsuit.

Since the party is not taking on this mandate from the central committee, we are having to raise the funds from concerned citizens on our own. If you think Republicans (and Democrats) should be choosing their candidates, please chip in to the fund that has been set up with the Claremont Institute. We need an army of citizens to step up and help us take on this giant. Those who think the open primary is a good idea are lining up against us. All we have are ourselves and the Constitution that clearly says the system in Colorado does not meet constitutional standards. Please give what you can right now. WE can win this battle with your help.


4. Supreme Court Nominee

On Monday Joe’s pick for the Supreme Court, Ketanji Brown Jackson, will begin her U.S. Senate hearing. Here is a brief description of her background, prepared by First Liberty Institute. I have a great deal of confidence in this legal team that is dedicated to defending the First Amendment. They do their homework and, as they present cases to the Supreme Court on a regular basis, they are experts on issues concerning the Supreme Court.


5. 468 Bills in Legislature

468 bills have now been introduced in the 2022 Colorado general session. Be aware that there are dozens of new spending programs and new regulations for citizens and businesses which I am not listing in my really bad bill list.

Worst Bills

Right now my really bad bill list includes:

HB-1025 PASSED HOUSE PLV eliminating tax credits and tax exemptions without a vote of the people, as required by TABOR
HB-1065 changes the standard to allow “substantial risk” be a sole criteria for implementing a forced 72 hour mental health hold
HB-1086 PASSED SENATE SECOND READING prohibits open carry within 100 feet of a ballot box or polling center
HB-1259 Expands Colorado’s welfare system with budget busting, unrealistic policies
HB-1269 Regulate medical cost sharing plans
HB-1279 PASSED SENATE COMMITTEES PLV  Promote abortions and deny the humanity of unborn children
HB-1289 Gives Medicaid coverage to illegal aliens who are pregnant or under age 19
HB-1295 Creates a universal preschool program for the state of Colorado
SB-008 PASSED SENATE COMMITTEES Offers free college tuition to foster kids, which is not a bad idea, assuming there is money to pay for it, but this bill goes beyond that to also include a free college eduction for any teenager (13 and above) who is determined to have been abused or neglected, taken from home and placed with relatives for any amount of time. I see a perverse incentive as big as a barn door in this poorly constructed bill.
SB-138 PASSED COMMITTEE Reduce greenhouse gas emissions, more nonsensical, destructive government regulations aimed at banning, among other things, small gas powered tools.
SB-153 PASSED SENATE COMMITTEES PLV Require electronic voting equipment for all jurisdictions of over 1000 people, thus prohibiting a hand counting system, prohibits a county clerk from making a copy of election server drives, strips from canvassing boards the authority to de-certify an election. This bill puts into statute what the current Secretary of State has been acting like she already has the power to do today.

Dumb bill

HB-1134 is the dumbest bill. The world would not end if this became law, but is this really the purpose of government?
It defines, in detail, where, when and how a customer could be offered a plastic utensil and a single use bag of ketchup, mustard, etc..

HB-1134 LOST IN COMMITTEE.

Best Bills

Here are are the best bills I have found, so far (that probably won’t make it out of the first committee). BTW, I am not trying to be overly partisan here, but this is a list of Republican sponsored bills.

HB-1015 LOST declares that off-label use of certain drugs (such as ivermectin) can be used as a treatment for COVID.
HB-1021 LOST, PLV reduces the state income tax rate to 4.4%.

HB-1047 LOST, PLV bans abortions, with a very limited list of exceptions.
HB-1048 PASSED FINANCE COMMITTEE establishes a license plate including the national motto: “In God We Trust.” Curiously, the bill does not call it the national motto.
HB-1059 will require a 2/3 majority vote in the House and Senate to establish or increase any fees.
HB-1062 eliminates state sales tax for food purchased for use outside of in home use. Which, as I read the bill, means no more state sales tax on food purchased in restaurants. 
HB-1078 LOST, PLV require all voting systems to be fully certified
HB-1079 LOST, PLV bans abortions
 by declaring unborn children to be “persons’

4. 447 Bills in Legislature

____________________________________
1. Political Prisoners in Colorado

Yes, that is what it amounts to for the clerk and her assistant in Mesa County. The local district attorney got a grand jury to indict both of these public servants with a long list of felony charges because they have been doing their best to protect the election records from the 2020 election. They were arrested and put in jail this past week. 

I have followed the situation in Mesa county quite closely and I am extremely frustrated with the political witch hunt that has been instigated by far too many elected officials, on both sides of the aisle. As an advocate for election integrity I see very little integrity coming from those who assure us that there is nothing to be concerned about, but then refuse to allow any serious investigation into the many irregularities that have occurred here in Colorado, and across the nation.
The only way we will get past the current distrust of our election systems is to prove their veracity, or effect the changes necessary to make them trustworthy. To deny this obvious problem is to become a part of the problem (for more information on this topic see article #3).

The charges, the bail that was set, and all of the other things that they have thrown against Tina and her supporters for many months are way out of proportion. This is political retribution in its ugliest form. If anyone thinks these heavy handed (and flimsy) charges will settle the issue, they are very mistaken. Tina and her supporters are now more committed than ever to fix the election corruption that is becoming more evident with every action the system takes against those who are genuinely trying to clean up our elections.

I am sure I will be reporting on further developments in this unwarranted political attack of a candidate for Secretary of State, but for now read Tina’s response on her website here.

2. Rally for Life at Capitol Today

HB-1279  promotes abortions and denies the humanity of unborn children. There will be a rally against this bill at the Capitol today at 11 AM.

The bill is being rushed through the House, with a very late night hearing in committee (until after 3:00 AM!) and was debated on the House floor today. UPDATE: WE JUST LEARNED THE DEBATE  ON THE HOUSE FLOOR WENT ON ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT FOR AN UNPRECEDENTED 24 HOURS STRAIGHTONE BILL HAS NEVER ELICITED SUCH AN EXTENDED SECOND READING DEBATE.  Refer to earlier reports below for details about this very extreme abortion bill.

3. Good and Bad Election Bills

There are two bills in the legislature dealing with election law. HB-1204 is a great bill that calls for significant election reforms that would cure many of the problems we have with the lack of integrity for elections in Colorado. This comprehensive bill would require paper ballots that could not be duplicated, hand counting of those ballots, go back to precinct voting on election day, and many other enhancements to the security and transparency of elections in Colorado. The bill will be heard in committee on Monday and probably faces a defeat on party lines.

The other bill, SB-153, just introduced by the senate president, is the exact opposite. SB-153 will require electronic voting equipment for all jurisdictions of over 1000 people, thus precluding the possibility of a hand counting system, prohibits a county clerk from making a copy of election server drives, strips from canvassing boards the authority to de-certify an election and many other measures to reduce the authority of county clerks. This bill puts into statute what the current Secretary of State has been trying to force on Tina Peters and a few other courageous and diligent county clerks.

The problem the current Colorado Secretary of State (SOS) has with Tina Peters is that she preserved all of the electronic records from the Dominion system, including what log files remained on the Dominion equipment by making a mirror image of all data on the election server. The audit that Clerk Peters authorized found that much of those files are routinely destroyed as the software does not retain all of the log files, routinely dropping the oldest log entries with newer log entries. The “Trusted Build” (software update to the server equipment ordered by the SOS) then went ahead and removed all of the remaining log files, so no log files from the election are left and any meaningful audit of the 2020 election is rendered impossible. 

It is significant to note that this bill essentially makes the actions Clerk Peters took in Mesa County illegal. I say significant because it essentially admits that what Clerk Peters has been doing is legal. They are trying stop a county clerk from preserving election records, make canvass boards irrelevant and put in place many other laws that would block out any possibility of transparency or accountability for elections in Colorado. I expect this bill has every chance of passage in today’s legislature.

Here is another useful report on this situation.

4. 447 Bills in Legislature

447 bills have now been introduced in the 2022 Colorado general session. Be aware that there are dozens of new spending programs and new regulations for citizens and businesses which I am not listing in my really bad bill list.

Worst Bills

Right now my really bad bill list includes:

HB-1025 SENT TO HOUSE FLOOR eliminating tax credits and tax exemptions without a vote of the people, as required by TABOR
HB-1065 changes the standard to allow “substantial risk” be a sole criteria for implementing a forced 72 hour mental health hold
HB-1086 PASSED HOUSE prohibits open carry within 100 feet of a ballot box or polling center
HB-1259 Expands Colorado’s welfare system with budget busting, unrealistic policies
HB-1269 Regulate medical cost sharing plans
HB-1279 IN HOUSE SECOND READING Promote abortions and deny the humanity of unborn children
HB-1289 Gives Medicaid coverage to illegal aliens who are pregnant or under age 19
SB-008 PASSED EDUCATION COMMITTEE Offers free college tuition to foster kids, which is not a bad idea, assuming there is money to pay for it, but this bill goes beyond that to also include a free college eduction for any teenager (13 and above) who is determined to have been abused or neglected, taken from home and placed with relatives for any amount of time. I see a perverse incentive as big as a barn door in this poorly constructed bill.
SB-138 Reduce greenhouse gas emissions, more nonsensical, destructive government regulations aimed at banning, among other things, small gas powered tools.
SB-153 Require electronic voting equipment for all jurisdictions of over 1000 people, thus prohibiting a hand counting system, prohibits a county clerk from making a copy of election server drives, strips from canvassing boards the authority to de-certify an election. This bill puts into statute what the current Secretary of State has been acting like she already has the power to do today.

Dumb bill

HB-1134 is the dumbest bill. The world would not end if this became law, but is this really the purpose of government?
It defines, in detail, where, when and how a customer could be offered a plastic utensil and a single use bag of ketchup, mustard, etc..

HB-1134 LOST IN COMMITTEE.

Best Bills

Here are are the best bills I have found, so far (that probably won’t make it out of the first committee). BTW, I am not trying to be overly partisan here, but this is a list of Republican sponsored bills.

HB-1015 declares that off-label use of certain drugs (such as ivermectin) can be used as a treatment for COVID.
HB-1021 reduces the state income tax rate to 4.4%.

SPECIAL EDITION

I am publishing this special edition of the Lundberg Report because there is additional information concerning HB-1279, the extreme abortion bill and significant information has been released dealing with election issues in Mesa County and Colorado.

First, HB-1279 will be heard in committee on Wednesday (tomorrow) and a big protest is being organized for Saturday at the Capitol. I gave my initial comments on the bill in my previous report, published on March 5. Here is a letter Giuliana Day sent out earlier today:

Dear Pro-Life Warriors,

Let’s show our strong opposition to the most radical bill in the nation and the world:
HB22-1279 or Reproductive Health Equity Act or RHEA. This Bill HAS to GO!!
Read below the latest update about tomorrow’s event at the State Capitol. 

A few points about the Reproductive Health Equity Act:

*It will legalize the killing of a human being in the womb at any stage of pregnancy, even until the moment of birth, and make it into a state law. 
*It declares that a woman has a fundamental right to end the life of her baby.
*It wants to achieve “racial equity” by targeting “people of color,” people with low incomes” as well as individuals in rural areas. 
*RHEA absolutely denies the rights of human beings in the womb. ““A fertilized egg, embryo, or fetus does not have independent or derivative rights under the laws of this state.”
*The bill prohibits ALL “State or local laws, ordinances, policies, procedures, regulatory guidelines and rules, practices, executive orders, and governmental actions and their implementation, whether statutory or otherwise” from limiting or refraining any access to abortions in any way, regardless of the age of the mother. This effectively ends any parental notification laws as well.
*It perpetuates the lie that killing a human being is “Reproductive Health Care.” 
*It doesn’t protect women undergoing abortion. RHEA prioritizes abortion over the health and safety of women.  
*The Bill supports taking the life of preborn babies even if the baby has the “wrong sex,” “wrong race,” or has disabilities. This bill supports racist, sexist and discriminatory practices.    
*RHEA does nothing to address the root problems that a woman faces that drives her to consider an abortion.
You can also read the article by The Gazette newspaper.

                                      URGENT CALL to ACTION

*TESTIFY against HB22-1279 on Wednesday, March 9th, at 1:30pm at the State Capitol-Health and Insurance Committee. Room HCR 0112. Before you testify, you need to register. The registration is relatively simple and can be done today. This is the link  to testify in person or remotely. Attached are the steps on how to do it. You can listen to the hearings here. 
*RALLY: Join us on Saturday March 12th, from 11am to 12:30pm at the West Steps of the State Capitol. If you live too far away, organize a rally in your city so we can get connected all over the state. 
*PROTEST this bill. Join us at the West steps of the State Capitol tomorrow, Wednesday, March 9th, at noon before testifying. Bring your signs. 
*CONTACT the sponsors of the bill: State Sen. Julie Gonzales (Denver), Rep.     Meg Froelich (Englewood), and Rep. Daneya Esgar (Pueblo) as well as your State Representative and Senator and ask them to OPPOSE  HB22-1279.
You can find your legislator here. 
*HOST a gathering and invite your family, friends and/or neighbors to listen to our presentation about the reality of abortion and its alternatives.
*INVITE church leaders to partners with us and testify tomorrow.
*REGISTER to volunteer at LifeDecisions.me and sign up to get updates.
*PRAY, PRAY AND PRAY.  Again, this is a battle we’ll fight on our knees.

Contact information for any questions:
Giuliana Day. Cell: 720-899-0897. Email: LifeDecisions365@gmail.com
 

Blessings, 

Giuliana Day
President of Life Decisions 
LifeDecisions.me
Email: LifeDecisions365@gmail.com

 

Additionally, late last week a second forensic report was published giving much more information about the vulnerabilities of the voting equipment and software being used in Mesa County. This is more evidence of how open to fraud the current voting systems are in Colorado. That report can be found here.

I will have more information on these significant, developing stories in the regular edition of the Lundberg Report

1. Extreme Abortion Bill

2. Caucuses Huge Success

3. 425 Bills in Legislature

4. Join the Breakfast Club Zoom call every Monday Morning

____________________________________
 1. Extreme Abortion Bill

HB-1279, introduced late this week, promotes abortions and denies the humanity of unborn children. Called the REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH EQUITY ACT, this is the most extreme abortion bill to ever be contemplated in Colorado. It states: “A FERTILIZED EGG, EMBRYO, OR FETUS DOES NOT HAVE INDEPENDENT OR DERIVATIVE RIGHTS UNDER THE LAWS OF THIS STATE.” The bill prohibits any local law or executive order from limiting any access to abortions in any way, regardless of the age of the mother. This effectively ends any parental notification laws as well.

All types of abortions are already allowed in Colorado, but this bill will underscore that policy at every level of government in Colorado. I am certain this was written with the expectation that Roe v. Wade will be overturned soon and this is an in-your-face reaction on the part of the extreme abortion advocates. The first hearing for the bill is already scheduled for next Wednesday. I heard there are plans to hold a rally for life, in opposition to this bill on Saturday, March 12, but I do not have all the details confirmed. If I learn more I will pass it on in a special report.
 
HB-1279 is the worst bill of the 2022 session, so far…

2. Caucuses Huge Success

Last Tuesday evening caucuses were held all across the state. More were conducted later in the week and by all accounts I am hearing it was a record turnout, at least on the Republican side. There is a growing momentum as more and more citizens are stepping up to be a part of the anticipated 2022 tidal-wave election this fall. The next stop in most counties will be the county and district assemblies, which will give a clearer snapshot on what to expect in the primary and in November.

3. 425 Bills in Legislature

425 bills have now been introduced in the 2022 Colorado general session. The legislature is not getting much done this year. It must be an election year.  Be aware that there are dozens of new spending programs and new regulations for citizens and businesses which I am not listing in my really bad bill list.

Worst Bills

Right now my really bad bill list includes:

HB-1025 PASSED FINANCE eliminating tax credits and tax exemptions without a vote of the people, as required by TABOR
HB-1065 changes the standard to allow “substantial risk” be a sole criteria for implementing a forced 72 hour mental health hold

1. Despots

2. Open Primary Challenged in Federal Court

3. 413 Bills in Legislature

4. Join the Breakfast Club Zoom call every Monday Morning

____________________________________
 1. Despots

For several weeks I have highlighted the situation in Canada, where Trudeau has ignored the pleas of Canadian citizens for freedom from the repressive policies of his administration. Instead he has doubled down on them, repeatedly lied to the public and proved to the world he is a despot.

Now Russia’s leader, Putin, has shown the world how ruthless and dangerous a despot can become. Pray for the people of Ukraine, that God may protect them in these very difficult days.

We will always have despots threatening the peace and security of other nations and such tyrants always have an impact on our nation in one way or another. We must be vigilant in guarding against their evil schemes. Yet the White House blunders on, setting up the circumstances that invite despots to continue their evil plans.

In the case of Russia, Biden ended our energy independence, enriching the revenues of Russia, giving Putin more incentive, and means, to assimilate his European neighbors. At the same time, just one year into his rule, Biden has also convinced the despots around the world that he does not have the energy or will to stand up to them. Instead of making America Great, Biden is heading us into a long and bitter winter.

Elections do have consequences. Lets get it right in 2022.

2. Open Primary Challenged in Federal Court

PARABLE (“People for Association Rights and Bi-Partisan Limited Elections”), together with several Colorado candidates for office, county chairmen, and voters, filed a lawsuit in federal court this week against Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold challenging Colorado’s Open Primary law as a violation of their First Amendment rights to Freedom of Speech and Association and their Fourteenth Amendment Rights to Equal Protection of the Laws.  The filings also include a motion for preliminary injunction to block continued use of Colorado’s Open Primary law in the upcoming June 28, 2022 primary election, as well as a motion for expedited briefing and argument.

PARABLE and the other Plaintiffs are represented by Dr. John Eastman (Constitutional Counsel Group) and Randy Corporon (Law Offices of Randy B. Corporon, P.C.).  

Eastman was a visiting professor at the University of Colorado Boulder in 2020-2021, and until January 2021 a long-time constitutional law professor and former Dean at Chapman University’s Fowler School of Law in Orange County, California.  He has an active Supreme Court practice, having represented two dozen parties and another 200 or so amici curiae before that Court through the Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence, the public interest law firm affiliated with the Claremont Institute that he founded in 1999.  He was involved in the Supreme Court’s landmark decision in California Democratic Party et al. v Jones (2000), which invalidated California’s blanket primary law as a violation of the First Amendment Freedom of Association rights of political parties and their members.  

“I’m honored to be representing PARABLE and the candidates and voters who are standing up to Colorado’s unconstitutional Open Primary law,” said Eastman in announcing the filing of the lawsuit.  “The Supreme Court has long recognized that the Freedom of Association protected by the First Amendment includes the freedom not to associate, and that is particularly important in the process by which a political association chooses its nominees for office,” Eastman added.  Unaffiliated voters are more than welcome to join a major political party in order to participate in that party’s nomination process, but they cannot be allowed to raid a party they have deliberately chosen not to join, without infringing on the constitutional rights of party members.”

Corporon is active in Colorado politics and currently serves as Colorado’s Republican National Committeeman. 

Anil Mathai, a spokesman for PARABLE, expressed the group’s excitement in having Dr. Eastman and Mr. Corporon take up this case on its behalf.  “This is an extremely important effort to protect our constitutional rights to freedom of association, freedom of speech, and the equal protection of the laws,” Anil stated, “and PARABLE is thrilled to have such top notch attorneys fighting the unconstitutional Open Primary law on our behalf.”

The litigation is being funded through tax deductible contribution to the Claremont Institute’s Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence.  Donations can be made at ccjlitigation.com.  


3. 413 Bills in Legislature

413 bills have now been introduced in the 2022 Colorado general session. The legislature is not getting much done this year. It must be an election year.  Be aware that there are dozens of new spending programs and new regulations for citizens and businesses which I am not listing in my really bad bill list.

Right now my really bad bill list includes:

HB-1025 PASSED FINANCE eliminating tax credits and tax exemptions without a vote of the people, as required by TABOR
HB-1065 changes the standard to allow “substantial risk” be a sole criteria for implementing a forced 72 hour mental health hold
HB-1086 PASSED HOUSE SECOND READING prohibits open carry within 100 feet of a ballot box or polling center
HB-1269 Regulate medical cost sharing plans
SB-008 PASSED EDUCATION COMMITTEE Offers free college tuition to foster kids, which is not a bad idea, assuming there is money to pay for it, but this bill goes beyond that to also include a free college eduction for any teenager (13 and above) who is determined to have been abused or neglected, taken from home and placed with relatives for any amount of time. I see a perverse incentive as big as a barn door in this poorly constructed bill.
SB-138 Reduce greenhouse gas emissions, more nonsensical, destructive government regulations aimed at banning, among other things, small gas powered tools.

Here is my list of what I would call dumb bills, or nanny bills. The world won’t end if this becomes law, but is this really the purpose of government?
HB-1134 LOST IN COMMITTEE defines, in detail, where, when and how a customer can be offered a plastic utensil and a single use bag of ketchup, mustard, etc..

Here are are the best bills I have found, so far (that probably won’t make it out of the first committee). BTW, I am not trying to be partisan here, but this is a list of Republican sponsored bills.

HB-1015 declares that off-label use of certain drugs (such as ivermectin) can be used as a treatment for COVID.
HB-1021 reduces the state income tax rate to 4.4%.
HB-1033 LOST, PLV establishes constitutional carry for Colorado, meaning a citizen could carry a hand gun concealed, without a permit. 
HB-1047 LOST, PLV bans abortions, with a very limited list of exceptions.
HB-1048 PASSED FINANCE COMMITTEE establishes a license plate including the national motto: “In God We Trust.” Curiously, the bill does not call it the national motto.
HB-1059 will require a 2/3 majority vote in the House and Senate to establish or increase any fees.
HB-1062 eliminates state sales tax for food purchased for use outside of in home use. Which, as I read the bill, means no more state sales tax on food purchased in restaurants. 
HB-1078 LOST, PLV require all voting systems to be fully certified
HB-1079 LOST, PLV bans abortions
 by declaring unborn children to be “persons’
HB-1084 LOST, PLV   
jurors who are ineligible because of their citizenship or residence shall be removed from the voter lists
HB-1085 LOST, PLV require 
paper ballots to have security features to prevent any duplication of ballots
HB-1100 prohibit COVID vaccination
 discrimination in the workplace
HB-1106 allow concealed carry
 on school grounds
HB-1125 
formula to permanently lower the income tax rate 
HB-1129 rebate 1.8 billion dollar tax surplus
HB-1130 LOST, PLV repeal sick leave mandates for companies of less than 16 employees
HB-1136 require ultrasound demonstrations for sex education course
HB-1144 recognize that natural immunity is at least the equivalent of vaccine immunity
HB-1147 federal officials must get permission from local sheriff to execute an arrest or search warrant
HB-1163 income tax deduction for medical expenses
HB-1200 exemptions for COVID-19 vaccine requirements
HB-1201 prohibit certain immunization requirements
HB-1203 LOST, educational tax credits
HB-1204 significant election reforms
HB-1206 prohibit teaching discrimination in public schools
HB-1207 expand educational choice for low performing schools
HB-1236 Parent’s Bill of Rights 
HB-1238 Elected Officials Approve Epidemic Duties I am including this on my good bill list because the title is an admirable goal. However, I have significant concerns with how the introduced version is worded. I hope the sponsors will correct these problems, should the bill move forward
SB-039 LOST, PLV establish HOPE scholarship program – I still have some questions about this program, but for now it is on my good bill list
SB-063 require compensation for takings from changes in land use laws
SB-093 LOST, PLV increase the senior and disabled veteran homestead exemption from $200,000 to $400,000 of home value

note: PLV means party-line vote

 1. Tyranny in Canada

I have taken a lot of space in this newsletter covering the Canadian demonstrations against Canada’s  severe COVID restrictions. I am doing this because what we are seeing happen to our northern neighbors could easily be repeated here.

This week the prime minister turned Canada into the equivalent of a third-world banana republic. He suspended their charter of rights (similar to our Bill of Rights), is freezing bank accounts of anyone who helped the truckers, put tight restrictions on journalists, are arresting the truckers with hundreds of police who look, and act, a lot like Darth Vader storm troopers. The prime minister of Canada is literally beating his subjects into submission. He also continues to refuse to acknowledge any of the valid concerns of these peaceful Canadian citizens. 

He blatantly lies to the Parliament when questioned about his actions. I cannot see how he can get away with all of these crimes he is committing against the people of Canada. But if he does survive, it will be a pattern for any would be tyrants, including here in the United States.

2. Meet and Greet for Greg Lopez is Today

3. 391 Bills in Legislature

391 bills have now been introduced in the 2022 Colorado general session.

6. Join the Breakfast Club Zoom call every Monday Morning

____________________________________

1. Freedom in Canada

Canada continues to be the focal point for freedom as the movement to end the mandates continues. At the same time the Prime minister and his Liberal Party continues to deny this extraordinary grass roots demand for freedom from the tyranny of the current government in power. Somebody needs to tell Trudeau that unless he figures this out soon his political reputation and career is about to collapse (if it hasn’t already).

Now the Ontario government is trying to criminalize collecting financial support for the movement. It was not enough to steal $10,000,000 from the GoFundMe donations, now they are trying to make it illegal to collect or disperse funds from GiveSendGo (who are refusing to become the Canadian government’s co-conspirator).

BTW, GoFundMe has always been a slippery group. I learned that when two years ago I tried to raise funds for the book, UNMASKED2020. The more I read the fine print with GoFundMe the less I liked them. Ultimately we did not use them and worked with a local fundraising platform through Independence Institute. This $10,000,000 (Canadian) theft was not a big surprise.

One final point, don’t believe the legacy media reports. Watch the on-the -ground bloggers who show the reality of this demonstration. The best starting point I can find is Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson.

2. New State Senate Leadership Team

Colorado Senate president Leroy Garcia announced late last week that he was resigning to take an appointment in Washington D.C.. This past Wednesday the Senate Democrats elected new leadership. Majority leader Steve Fenberg was elected to be senate president and Dominic Moreno the majority leader. Moreno was on the Joint Budget Committee, so he is being replaced on the JBC by Rachel Zenzinger.

I doubt if these changes will alter much at the Capitol. If anything Fenberg, representing Boulder, may shift the policies further left than the policies of Garcia, who represented Pueblo.

3. Events on February 19

There are two events next Saturday, February 19 in Northern Colorado which I recommend you check out, and attend if you can. I will be speaking at the first one and am helping to host the second.

5. Griswold’s Autocratic World

Colorado’s Secretary of State has really been making a mess of the integrity of elections in Colorado with her heavy-handed rules, regulations and orders. For some details on this continuing saga check out Ashe in America.

Breaking News – just released on Thursdaynew orders issued by Griswold to further clamp down on any transparency in Colorado voting systems. These new rules will not allow county clerks any ability to examine or preserve any election records not specifically authorized by the secretary of state. Griswold continues her autocratic rule by stripping away more authority from duly elected county clerks, and she does it through emergency rule making, repeatedly exceeding her constitutional bounds.

1. Followup on Canadian Truck Convoy

I have already reported extensively on the events in Canada, but this is a significant cultural event that requires a great deal of attention. Over the last two years the government of Canada has violated their laws with very heavy-handed restrictions and finally the people of Canada are rising up in peaceful, but powerful protests.

Here is a short piece that somebody put together contrasting scenes from the protest in Ottawa and the speeches the Prime Minister has given, trying to discredit these determined and peaceful Canadians who are demanding their freedom. It is a Facebook post:

2. Colorado’s Open Primary to be Challenged in Federal Court

Before reading this invitation, check out this letter to the editor that demonstrates the problem from the Aspen Daily News:
https://www.aspendailynews.com/opinion/make-boebert-one-term/article_576ceae6-8399-11ec-a67f-bb819c90dc13.html

You are cordially invited help support one of the most important political lawsuits in at least a decade. 

Constitutional scholar and Donald J. Trump legal advisor Dr. John D. Eastman and Colorado GOP National Committeeman, Randy B. Corporon, will soon announce the filing of a lawsuit to strike down the Colorado statue mandating unaffiliated voter participation in Republican primaries.

No law has done more to destroy the Republican Party in the State of Colorado than this one. Since its adoption, no Republican has won statewide election in Colorado. In addition, Republicans lost control of the State Senate and have been overwhelmed in the State House.

The Republican Party of Virginia last year refused to have a primary that included unaffiliated voters and nominated strong Republicans for Governor, Lt. Governor and Attorney General and swept those positions in the November 2021 election along with taking back their State House.

The Colorado State Central Committee with over 500 members at its Fall meeting in Pueblo last year voted for the State Party or members of the party to file this action and for the State Party to provide an account to help fund the litigation. Unfortunately, the Party has been unable to take any action other than asking for an advisory opinion from the Federal Election Commission on campaign finance. 

However, as alternatively envisioned by the Party resolution, some Colorado conservatives have formed an association, entitled PARABLE, “People for Association Rights and Bi-Partisan Limited Elections,” to undertake and spearhead the litigation. You are cordially invited to join PARABLE’s efforts to help support the filing of the lawsuit.  Dr. Eastman was part of the successful legal effort to overturn a similar law in California as unconstitutional, so we believe we will attain a comparable result here in Colorado.

Please go to https://ccjlitigation.com/ and make your most generous tax-deductible donation to the Claremont Institute today!  Please also send this invitation to your friends.  Thank you!

4. 295 Bills in Legislature

295 bills have now been introduced in the 2022 Colorado general session. The legislature is getting off to a very slow start this year, as none of the bills I am highlighting here have yet to be heard in any committee.  Be aware that there are dozens of new spending programs and new regulations for citizens and businesses which I am not listing in my really bad bill list.

Right now my really bad bill list includes:

HB-1025 eliminating tax credits and tax exemptions without a vote of the people, as required by TABOR
HB-1065 changes the standard to allow “substantial risk” be a sole criteria for implementing a forced 72 hour mental health hold
HB-1086 prohibits open carry within 100 feet of a ballot box or polling center
SB-008 Offers free college tuition to foster kids, which is not a bad idea, assuming there is money to pay for it, but this bill goes beyond that to also include a free college eduction for any teenager (13 and above) who is determined to have been abused or neglected, taken from home and placed with relatives for any amount of time. I see a perverse incentive as big as a barn door in this poorly constructed bill.

Here is my list of what I would call dumb bills, or nanny bills. The world won’t end if this becomes law, but is this really the purpose of government?
HB-1134 defines, in detail, where, when and how a customer can be offered a plastic utensil and a single use bag of ketchup, mustard, etc..


Here are are the best bills I have found, so far (that probably won’t make it out of the first committee). BTW, I am not trying to be partisan here, but this is a list of Republican sponsored bills.

HB-1015 declares that off-label use of certain drugs (such as ivermectin) can be used as a treatment for COVID.
HB-1021 reduces the state income tax rate to 4.4%.
HB-1033 establishes constitutional carry for Colorado, meaning a citizen could carry a hand gun concealed, without a permit.
HB-1047 bans abortions, with a very limited list of exceptions.
HB-1048 establishes a license plate including the national motto: “In God We Trust.” Curiously, the bill does not call it the national motto.
HB-1059 will require a 2/3 majority vote in the House and Senate to establish or increase any fees.
HB-1062 eliminates state sales tax for food purchased for use outside of in home use. Which, as I read the bill, means no more state sales tax on food purchased in restaurants. 
HB-1078 require all voting systems to be fully certified
HB-1079 bans abortions
 by declaring unborn children to be “persons’
HB-1084 
jurors who are ineligible because of their citizenship or residence shall be removed from the voter lists
HB-1085 require 
paper ballots to have security features to prevent any duplication of ballots
HB-1100 prohibit COVID vaccination
 discrimination in the workplace
HB-1106 allow concealed carry
 on school grounds
HB-1125 
formula to permanently lower the income tax rate 
HB-1129 rebate 1.8 billion dollar tax surplus
HB-1130 repeal sick leave mandates for companies of less than 16 employees
HB-1136 require ultrasound demonstrations for sex education course
HB-1144 recognize that natural immunity is at least the equivalent of vaccine immunity
HB-1147 federal officials must get permission from local sheriff to execute an arrest or search warrant
SB-039 establish HOPE scholarship program – I still have some questions about this program, but for now it is on my good bill list
SB-063 require compensation for takings from changes in land use laws
SB-093 increase the senior and disabled veteran homestead exemption from $200,000 to $400,000 of home value

Special Report: Convoy in Canada

Something is happening in Canada that is without precedent in North America. After nearly two years of draconian lockdowns and freedom-busting rules and regulations the people of Canada are standing up and saying enough.

This started as a convoy of truckers, who traveled to their capitol city, Ottawa, but it has grown to involve millions of people in Canada (truckers, citizens literally cheering them on, contributing online, and following on social media)  and who knows how many supporters around the world.

At the same time, the Canadian government, starting with their prime minister, has turned a blind eye and given a tin ear to the obvious. 

I am publishing this special report to give you a good overview of this historic situation. Included here are hours of video documenting the actual situation in Ottawa. Also included are short clips of prime minister Trudeau’s chilling response. 

I suggest starting with this short clip of some of the prime minister’s comments (about one minute) and then compare his description of the situation to the realities of the videos documenting this extraordinary event. If you are pressed for time, just sample through the video’s. My wife and I have viewed most of these clips and they all tell the same story.

As you listen to Trudeau’s comments and view the on the ground reports, consider well the vast differences and judge for yourself who is telling the truth and who is lying with abandon. 

As I see it, Prime Minister Trudeau is acting like “Bagdad Bob” in Iraq, right before the coalition forces overwhelmed Saddam Hussein’s dwindling army. Only in this case it will hopefully end with the tyrannical leaders losing their positions of authority and the Canadian citizens regaining their government and their freedom.

Here are the video’s that describe it better than I can.

____________________________________

1.  Stop the Mandates Rally in Colorado Was a Huge Success

Thousands of trucks and cars are converging on Canada’s Capitol today in protest of their extreme COVID mandates.

Here in Colorado over 1500 people spent their Sunday afternoon on January 23 at the Colorado Capitol building protesting the policies in Colorado. At the protest the stories were told of how the unreasonable, and at times tyrannical, policies from all levels of government have disrupted the lives and livelihoods of far too many Colorado citizens. It was the people peaceably assembling, and petitioning the Government for a redress of grievances.

The best way I can convey the spirit of this event is through this montage of the signs at the protest. Click here or the image to play video. 

                    

To view a short clip on the protest in Washington DC click here.

BTW, did you read that a GoFundMe campaign raised millions of dollars for the Canadian truckers convoy, but GoFundMe is not releasing all of the funds? More recent information tells me this not accurate information. It is difficult to keep track of all of the details of this rapidly developing situation. It looks now that the convoy is intending to stay until government policies back off from their heavy handed mandates.

I wonder if the Trudeau government will survive this mess they created with their endless controls on the Canadian people?

2. Proposed Social Studies Standards
 
The state board of education is considering new standards for teaching social studies. The changes are radical and extreme, but don’t take my word for it, read it for yourself at https://www.cde.state.co.us/standardsandinstruction/socialstudiesrevisionrecommendationsnov-21.

The document is currently up for public review, but the deadline for comments is very soon, February 1. Email your comments to commissioner@cde.state.co.us.

As I reviewed these standards (as much as I could stand reading) I was amazed at what isn’t there. There isn’t much of anything that used to be considered the academic discipline of history. I searched for some historical names of great significance in American history, including Lincoln, Adams, Reagan, Eisenhower, Rockefeller, Ford, Carnegie. None of these are mentioned even once. 
There is also a clear absence of any chronological context for the major themes and movements in American history, such as industrial revolutions in agriculture, the development of the nation through the establishment of the fifty states, the unique governmental design of federalism, the original intent and structure of the Constitution, the concept of equality, which was first substantially established in civil government with the Declaration of Independence (instead there is an anti theme promulgated that the Declaration excluded certain groups from the principle of equality). I could go on, and on, but the point is obvious.
There is such a focus on “inclusivity,” denigrating America’s past, extolling LGBT values, minimizing the valiant efforts of abolitionists such as John Quincy Adams (who is never mentioned), making sure first graders understand “equity,” etc. etc.. I am certain anything a conservative Christian parent hopes would be taught will not be covered at all, or the antithesis will be taught instead. 
I remember studying the “new” state standards for History about 30 years ago and the problems in the state standards from that time were the occasional mentions of revisionist concepts and ideas. Now one is hard pressed to find any main themes that are not revisionist history or blatant woke indoctrination. 
And don’t forget that future textbooks will have to incorporate all of these standards for them to be considered for Colorado public schools. This will certainly impact charter school text book choices as well.
If there is a silver lining it is that this document is one of the strongest arguments for homeschooling and private schools I have ever seen. Every parent considering public schools in Colorado needs to study this document before allowing their child to darken the door of a public school at any age.

Here is a more comprehensive overview of this radical document, written by Joy Overbeck:

Pushing CRT and the LGBTQ Agenda

Preschoolers are steered toward the major theme of CRT – that skin color, not character or intrinsic human value, is the defining characteristic of each individual. Three and four-year-olds who typically don’t even notice race are told to (p. 4) “Engage in one-on-one and small group conversations about similarities and differences among individuals. For example, hair, eyes, skin tone….” This “us versus them” mentality is injected into every grade level numerous times by constantly separating out the same racial and LGBTQ groups from white Americans, telling students to focus on a monolithic  “marginalized “ supergroup of African Americans, Asian Americans, Latinos, Indigenous Peoples, LGTBQ, and religious minorities. ” and the “barriers that prevent them from being ‘contributing’ citizens,”  

Preschools will learn about the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) agenda through the idea of “diversity.” (P.5):  “Encourage preschoolers to appreciate individual differences by providing diverse materials, literature and activities. For example: books about diverse families…” “Diverse families” literature is code for a host of books like “Stella Brings the Family” about a little girl with two daddies, and other “diverse” families with homosexual and transgender “partners.” Parents, not the schools, should decide when their children learn about homosexuality and transgenderism – and it’s probably not at age four.   

Six-year-olds in first grade are told (p. 18) to “Identify similarities and differences between themselves and others. For example: race, ethnicity, gender identity, religion, ability and family makeup.” Here, small children are introduced to “gender identity,” which is the disturbing notion that they may not be the girls or boys their parents have told them they are. “Family makeup” will include lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer families.  These complex and controversial concepts are taught without parents’ knowledge, and at an age when children are unable to comprehend such things.  

First graders (p. 23} “Identify and explain the relevance of notable civic leaders from different community groups including, but not limited to, African American, Latino, Asian American, Indigenous Peoples, LGBTQ, and religious minorities.” White children will understand that failure to mention white leaders means that they are less “notable.” If “inclusivity” is the goal, why would white Americans seem to be excluded?     

Third graders are asked to (P. 38) “Describe the history, interaction and contribution of the various peoples and cultures, including, but not limited to: African American, Asian American, Indigenous Peoples, Latinos, LGBTQ, and religious minorities that have lived in or migrated to a community or region and how that migration has influenced change and development.” What about including the large migration of Irish, Germans, Scandinavians, and other peoples who came to America seeking a better life, and why they came? Are they excluded here because they were white?     

(P. 39) “How have people from different groups and identities lived together and interacted with each other in the past? For example: African American, Asian Americans, Indigenous Peoples, Latinos, LGBTQ, and religious minorities.” Again, there is the strong implication that these minority groups act and think in lockstep, not as individuals with their own personal opinions that may have nothing to do with their skin color. Shouldn’t educational equity demand all people be treated as unique and valuable individuals, not simply stereotypes of their race, class or gender identity?    

A Grim View of America Dominates the Standards

In third grade, students are steered toward the CRT dogma that certain racial groups and LGBTQ people are oppressed in America because of bias and “institutionalized racism” and their voices silenced. (p.44) “Why are some groups, such as African Americans, Asian Americans, Indigenous Peoples, Latinos, LGBTQ, and religious minorities feel like their voices are not being heard?” It may be more historically accurate to compare how some groups (African Americans especially) were silenced and denied the vote and basic rights by Democrat KKK politicians in the South, and how today their vote and their voices are heard.    

This theme of victim versus victimizer groups continues in the higher grades. Students In several grades are numerous times asked questions like: “What are some of the barriers that prevent communities such as African American, Latino, Indigenous Peoples, Asian American, LGBTQ, and religious minorities from being ‘contributing citizens?’” (p. 81) First, why the assumption that barriers exist? The phrasing asserts that  white non-LGBTQ people don’t face any barriers, one of the core tenets of CRT. Again, equity demands that this question include barriers to ALL citizens. This is another example of how students are constantly encouraged to view “marginalized” people and white people as having totally different life experiences – whites are aways ‘privileged” and minorities are always encountering barriers and being held back.

Fourth graders are told that the hardy pioneers who pushed west through a dangerous wilderness were settler colonists and are asked (P. 48) to “Identify and describe the processes of settler colonialism/Westward Expansion that impacted and altered the political and cultural landscape…. of Colorado.” Will they discuss the fact that most pioneers were immigrants, fleeing tyranny and religious persecution in their native lands to seek freedom in America?   

Globalism is superior to nationalism? (P. 96)  – “How do international laws, alliances, and organizations help facilitate solutions to global problems, for instance encouraging ethical governmental practices?” This implies favortism towards an internationalist/globalist rather than a national perspective and requires its logical counterpart: “How have international laws and organizations worked against solutions to global problems?” Why do international laws foster ethical practices, when our nation’s laws apparently do not ?

P. 133: “What are the structures in the United States government that inhibit democratic decision making?” Again, the foundational assumption is that our government is failing. In fairness, how about also asking the corollary: “What are the government structures that encourage Democratic decision making?”  

Certainly, there are no objections to teaching the truth about American history. But the good as well as the bad and the ugly must get equal footing. The focus here is on familiar leftist political talking points about “marginalized groups,” alleged “voter suppression” and the like – not on the founding American principles of liberty, opportunity, and individual human rights that have allowed more people to live  more freely than any other civic system in history.

For example, the Declaration of Independence is mentioned only six times in the 145-page standards, while “LGBTQ” gets 32 mentions and “Indigenous” 66 mentions.  

Students are Urged to Become Political Activists    

Fourth graders are told: (P. 44) “Civic-minded individuals understand that some of the most impactful and necessary changes to institutions have required the breaking of rules and demanding justice, even if these demands are not mainstream and are met with resistance.” It is not the province of the public schools to promote law-breaking or violent activism which can lead to burning down police precincts and businesses in the name of “demanding justice.” What will these children be taught are “necessary changes”?  This obvious political indoctrination must be removed.   

P. 97 – “Explain the origins, functions and structures of different governments…dictatorship…monarchy, democratic-republic, socialism, fascism, and communism.” Will students also be taught the disastrous real life impact on citizens and their personal freedoms of these various forms of government – such as banning  free speech, imprisonment and murder of dissenters, forced abortion in China’s one-child policy , human experiments and organ “harvesting” in Communist countries ?     

P. 98 – “Look for and find value in different perspectives expressed by others.” What  if a perspective has no value – such as the “separate but equal” Supreme Court decision decades ago?  Must everyone’s views be equally valued and accepted?  Should female genital mutilation be allowed because it’s part of a religious/cultural norm? Maybe children should be taught it’s okay to have their own independent opinion.   

P. 111 – “What is the role of truth versus beliefs?” There’s an implication here that beliefs are not truth. But it is up to parents, not the schools, to teach their children truth  AND beliefs.    

P. 130 – “Engage in advocacy at the appropriate level of government for both individual and group rghts. For example: African American, Latino, Asian American Indigenous Peoples, LGBTQ and religious minorities.” It is not within the purview of the public schools to recruit students as activitists for any cause including “group or individual rights.” Urging such “social justice” activism leads to the Black Lives Matter and LGBTQ flags currently displayed in some classrooms. Such an overtly political call to action doesn’t belong in a school curriculum and must be removed.

P. 131 “Under what circumstances, if any, is it necessary to organize and act outside of established methods of civic participation?” What is meant by this? It sounds like another incitement to illegal mob action that could include violence.   

Summing Up

As Board of Education decision-makers tasked with setting social studies and other educational parameters for Colorado schoolchildren, you are faced with a daunting responsibility. I suggest that you think about the proposed new standards in terms of how they will impact students as individuals, now and in their future lives and careers.  

How will it affect a child’s self-confidence, sense of worth, and ultimately ability to achieve to be told as a youngster that he/she can never overcome the societal forces against his/her success as someone in a “marginalized” class? Why would a school system deliberately want to burden a child with such a defeatist, anxiety-producing world view?  If the goal of “equity” is inclusion and acceptance, will this victim mentality be more or less likely to help kids get along in harmony, or will it foster suspicion and resentment among classmates of different races? Be honest.

Then there’s the LGBTQ component. What goes through a six-year-old’s mind when the class reads books on “gender diversity” suggesting he or she may or may not be the gender she has been raised to think she is? This is happening now. Recently a mom sued the California school district for grooming her eleven-year-old daughter to join a LGBTQ “Equality Club” and convincing her she is transgender. (https://nypost.com/2022/01/24/mother-sues-teachers-for-brainwashing-student-to-identify-as-transgender/) Schools must not usurp parents’ role as the first and most important teachers of their own children, especially in moral and sexual matters. Sowing gender confusion in the minds of children is not the role of the public schools and can lead to profound psychological and emotional problems.    

Here’s another really important issue: how will these standards be translated into classroom curricula? Already white children are told to confront their “white privilege” – either in writing, or by confessing in front of their class. How is blaming today’s children for the sins of people who lived decades ago “inclusion;” or is inclusion only for minority children?

When children are conditioned from an early age to believe they can never achieve the success reserved for the “privileged” class, how will these individuals deal with the serious grown-up challenges of life – school, career, and family? Will they be equipped for success? Or will they simply give up and turn to drugs or crime?   

These are questions worth considering because your decisions now will shape the future of our great state. The future of our state is our young people.

3. 228 Bills in Legislature

228 bills have now been introduced in the 2022 Colorado general session. I still don’t find any major bad bills in the lot from the majority party, but I am sure they are coming.  However, there are dozens of new spending programs and new regulations for citizens and businesses which I am not listing in my really bad bill list.

Right now my really bad bill list includes:

HB-1025 eliminating tax credits and tax exemptions without a vote of the people, as required by TABOR
HB-1065 changes the standard to allow “substantial risk” be a sole criteria for implementing a forced 72 hour mental health hold

SB-008 Offers free college tuition to foster kids, which is not a bad idea, assuming there is money to pay for it, but this bill goes beyond that to also include a free college eduction for any teenager (13 and above) who is determined to have been abused or neglected, taken from home and placed with relatives for any amount of time. I see a perverse incentive as big as a barn door in this poorly thought bill.

Here is my list of what I would call dumb bills, or nanny bills. The world won’t end if this becomes law, but is this really the purpose of government?
HB-1134 defines, in detail, where, when and how a customer can be offered a plastic utensil and a single use bag of ketchup, mustard, etc..

1. The Truth about “The Big Lie”

2. Stop the Mandates Rally

3. 222 Bills in Legislature

4. Join the Breakfast Club Zoom call every Monday Morning

____________________________________

1. The Truth about “The Big Lie”

The big story in the legislature this week was not dealing with any bills. It was two virtually identical resolutions (HR-1004 and SM-001) in the House and Senate concerning election integrity (or the lack thereof).

I titled this as the truth about “The Big Lie,” because there is a big lie out there, a really big lie, but it is not what is being reported by virtually every media outlet, every Democrat leader and too many Republicans as well. We are all too familiar with this story. I have been reporting on it for now well over a year. To pick up many of the details review the reports I have published (found below on this page and the newsletter archives on the website).

Suffice it here to say that there is an overwhelming bank of evidence that the 2020 election was filled with fraud, particularly in the presidential swing states. Part of the really big lie is that Colorado’s voting system is called the “gold standard.” Colorado has been a leader in establishing a voting system that is ripe for fraud and abuse, with automatic voter registration, same day voter registration, all mail ballots, a totally opaque electronic voting system and bloated voter registration roles that in some cases exceed the number of possible voters that exist in each county.

Calling this absurd and dangerous voting system the “gold standard” is the Orwellian part of this really big lie. It is obvious that the really big lie is being promulgated by those who coined the terms “gold standard” and “The Big Lie.” Of course, they insist that anyone who questions the integrity of this flimsy system is buying into “The Big Lie.”

Here is a way to test the veracity of these competing claims: Who is calling for audits, transparency of all the facts and verification of the claims? Who wants all of this to be given a fair hearing in the courts? Who wants the election equipment vendors to open up their boxes and their computer codes? Who is trying to get this all out in the open and who is insisting that we just cover it up and move along?

Too much has already come out to think this will ever go away before it is completely settled. The time has come to verify the facts on both sides of the argument. We must have election integrity, with verified, repeatable, and robust accuracy of the real, live, legitimate voting citizens. Anyone who refuses to get this sorted out is promoting the really big lie.

Getting back to the resolutions, they were not just denying the evident fraud of the 2020 election, or only claiming that Colorado has the “gold standard.” The resolution was urging the U.S. Congress to pass Federal legislation which would force these systems on all 50 states. Fortunately that fell apart in Washington, and in Colorado we now know who supports this charade in the Colorado legislature.

Essentially the votes for the resolutions fell on party lines (the only exception was a senator who is not much more than Republican in name only). Several amendments were also proposed, where the votes tell much when looking at who voted for and against the amendments. If you want to study those details I invite you to click on the resolutions and look at the amendments and individual votes on the amendments.

I wrap this up with the observation that a large majority of Republicans, many unaffiliated and even a big chunk of Democrats know that our election systems are broken. The opportunity for fraud is obvious to anyone who fairly assesses the shallow security measures and the evidence of fraud is over whelming, for those who actually take the time to look at the evidence.

There is a really big lie out there and I think of it every time I hear someone claim there is no evidence that the 2020 presidential election was stolen. Look at all the facts and judge carefully. Our nation’s future depends upon it.

2.  Stop the Mandates Rally

On January 23 a big rally to defeat the mandates is planned for Washington D.C..  In support of that rally, for those not traveling to our nation’s capitol, a similar event is scheduled to be held at the Colorado State Capitol:


3. 222 Bills in Legislature

222 bills have now been introduced in the 2022 Colorado general session. I still don’t find any major bad bills in the lot from the majority party, but I am sure they are coming. However, there are dozens of new spending programs and new regulations for citizens and businesses.

Right now my really bad bill list includes:

HB-1025 eliminating tax credits and tax exemptions without a vote of the people, as required by TABOR
HB-1065 changes the standard to allow “substantial risk” be a sole criteria for implementing a forced 72 hour mental health hold
HB-1086 prohibits open carry within 100 feet of a ballot box or polling center


Here are are the best bills I have found, so far (that probably won’t make it out of the first committee). 

HB-1015 declares that off-label use of certain drugs (such as ivermectin) can be used as a treatment for COVID.
HB-1021 reduces the state income tax rate to 4.4%.
HB-1033 establishes constitutional carry for Colorado, meaning a citizen could carry a hand gun concealed, without a permit.
HB-1047 bans abortions, with a very limited list of exceptions.
HB-1048 establishes a license plate including the national motto: “In God We Trust.” Curiously, the bill does not call it the national motto.
HB-1059 will require a 2/3 majority vote in the House and Senate to establish or increase any fees.
HB-1062 eliminates state sales tax for food purchased for use outside of in home use. Which, as I read the bill, means no more state sales tax on food purchased in restaurants. 
HB-1078 require all voting systems to be fully certified
HB-1079 bans abortions
 by declaring unborn children to be “persons’
HB-1084 
jurors who are ineligible because of their citizenship or residence shall be removed from the voter lists
HB-1085 require 
paper ballots to have security features to prevent any duplication of ballots
HB-1100 prohibit COVID vaccination
 discrimination in the workplace
HB-1106 allow concealed carry
 on school grounds
HB-1125 
formula to permanently lower the income tax rate 
HB-1129 rebate 1.8 billion dollar tax surplus
HB-1130 repeal sick leave mandates for companies of less than 16 employees
SB-039 establish HOPE scholarship program – I still have some questions about this program, but for now it is on my good bill list
SB-063 require compensation for takings from changes in land use laws

2. Ivermectin Conference

3. Zuck Bucks Bought Questionable Election Policies

4. SCOTUS Ruling on COVID Mandates

5. Join the Breakfast Club Zoom call every Monday Morning

____________________________________

1. First Week of 2022 Regular Session

The 2022 session started last Wednesday and 111 bills have already been introduced. I don’t find any major bills in the lot from the majority party, but I am sure they are coming. There are dozens of new spending programs, and I have heard that the budget, which was about 34 billion dollars last year, will top 40 billion this year.

One bad bill caught my eye, which is ostensibly ending seldom used tax credits and tax exemptions, what they call “tax expenditures.” This bill is significant, as it is a TABOR violation to eliminate tax credits and exemptions without a vote from the people. I doubt that the sponsors of this bill (HB-25) will consider that “detail.”

Ballotpedia puts it succinctly: “The Colorado Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights (TABOR) requires voter approval for all new taxes, tax rate increases, extensions of expiring taxes, mill levy increases, valuation for property assessment increases, or tax policy changes resulting in increased tax revenue

In future reports I will dig deeper into some of the worst bills introduced, but here are some good bills (that probably won’t make it out of the first committee). 

HB-15 declares that off-label use of certain drugs (such as ivermectin) can be used as a treatment for COVID.
HB-21 reduces the state income tax rate to 4.4%.
HB-33 establishes constitutional carry for Colorado, meaning a citizen could carry a hand gun concealed, without a permit.
HB-47 bans abortions, with a very limited list of exceptions.
HB-48 establishes a license plate including the national motto: “In God We Trust.” Curiously, the bill does not call it the national motto.
HB-59 will require a 2/3 majority vote in the House and Senate to establish or increase any fees.
HB-62 eliminates state sales tax for food purchased for use outside of in home use. Which, as I read the bill, means no more state sales tax on food purchased in restaurants. 

2. Ivermectin Conference

Speaking of ivermectin, I just ran across this conference on ivermectin. It was held last April, but there is a lot of useful information packed into this website, with all of the main speeches online for this informative conference on how ivermectin fights COVID.


3. Zuck Bucks Bought Questionable Election Policies

Zuckerberg spent over $400,ooo,ooo to influence the 2020 election and it changed a lot in some critical states. Here is an article that describes some of what that $400,000,000 bought. The article was published back in October, but I bring it up now as one of the directors for an organization that spent a great deal of these “Zuck Bucks” is Pam Anderson, who is now running for Colorado Secretary of State as a Republican. As I see it, Pam Anderson has a lot of explaining to do to Republicans in Colorado. 

Just this week a judge ruled that the ballot boxes that the “Zuck Bucks” bought in Wisconsin violated Wisconsin laws and cannot be used again. Please check out the many links in this story. It is vitally important that Republicans understand who is seeking to represent their party in the race for Colorado Secretary of State.

Finally, lest we forget about Arizona, here is a quick read on the 700,000 questionable ballots found in Arizona, where the margin for victory was about 10,000 votes…


4. SCOTUS Ruling on COVID Mandates

In a split decision the Supreme Court took the middle road, striking down the vaccine mandate for businesses, but upholding the mandate for medical workers. As a followup to the report I gave last week on Justice Gorsuch, his votes correctly interpreted the constitutional principles in these cases, but as a whole the Court only gave us half a loaf.

____________________________________

1. Stop the Mandates Rally

On January 23 a big rally to defeat the mandates is planned for Washington D.C..  In support of that rally, for those not traveling to our nation’s capitol, a similar event is scheduled to be held at the Colorado State Capitol:



As more information becomes available, I will pass it on.

2. January 6

We have all heard far too much spin from Biden and his cronies about January 6. I even read an opinion piece from a state government policy journal, that doesn’t usually take sides on controversial issues, which accused anyone who questions the accuracy of the 2020 election is the real threat to our nation. Those of us who have seen enough evidence already of widespread fraud in the 2020 election are not threatening anything that is fair and honest, but we might be a real threat to those who have been defrauding our election system.

However, getting back to January 6, the best rebuttal I have seen to Joe’s claims is Trump’s observations. They are brief, but in President Trump’s style, very much to the point. Click here for his statements.


3. COVID update

I will start with the good news. It has been obvious to many for some time, but finally some medical experts are admitting that the omicron variant may be the silver bullet to finally put a stop to the pandemic. I said, way back in the Spring of 2020, that probably the only way past COVID is through COVID, meaning enough healthy and strong individuals must contract the disease to develop the heard immunity that usually stops such plagues.

Is omicron a blessing in disguise? It is contagious enough to blow right past the shallow protection the seemingly endless “vaccines” provide, weak enough to not pose a serious health threat to the vast majority and yet close enough to the original COVID-19 to fire up our immune systems for real heard immunity?

For the story on omicron click here.

Additionally, here and here is more evidence that “vaccines” are not the final answer.

4. Biblical Citizenship Online

With the legislative session beginning this coming week and an important election season kicking into gear it is time to sharpen our skills and understanding of citizenship.

An eight week course is being offered online, at no cost, by Patriot Academy. Similar classes have been held across the country for local groups, but this showing is their first nation-wide event.

I know the organizers and many of the speakers for this course and strongly recommend checking it out. The first class is this coming Monday evening. For more information click here.


5. Justice Gorsuch

Here is an analysis of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch, who has roots in Northern Colorado. The article gives strong evidence that Neil Gorsuch is a real champion for freedom on our nation’s highest bench. It is encouraging to see someone from our area rise to such heights and still keep his values firmly planted on solid ground.

On Friday of this week the Court heard oral arguments for and against the vaccine mandates Biden is trying to force upon private businesses and medical workers.  As the article I am recommending gives a strong case for Justice Gorsuch’s respect for our inalienable rights, this case, to be decided in a matter of days, will tell us much more about Justice Gorsuch and the other eight members of the Court.

Law professor Rob Natelson recently wrote this in-depth look at Justice Gorsuch. If you can take the time, please read this informative and encouraging article.

6.  Next Breakfast Club Zoom call on Monday, January 3, 2022

____________________________________

1. Boulder County Wild Fires

Devastating wildfires destroyed hundreds of homes, but so far no reports of any loss of life. In the midst of all this tragedy we can be grateful for the protection of the people that were impacted by this conflagration. Please pray for those hundreds of families that have lost their homes and look for ways you can meaningfully help them in this time of great need.

2. Election Integrity Issue Continues to Grow

According to a recent Rasmussen pol a majority of Americans believe cheating “affected the outcome” of the presidential election. That’s a nice way of saying the 2020 presidential election was stolen. I have been studying this issue since the election occurred and I am convinced these Americans are right, the election was stolen. 

Despite Big Tech and too much of the political establishment insisting everything is working well, “just move along, nothing to see here,” most Americans don’t buy it. Too much has happened, we have seen too many reasons to not trust the current system, and the stonewalling that equipment vendors, such as Dominion, continues to display only gives further evidence of their complicity.  

David Kupelian has written an excellent analysis of why we cannot accept anything less than getting rid of this corruption. Our nation’s future hangs in the balance. It is a long road, but we cannot give up and the stakes are too high to ignore.

3. Prayer Initiative for Colorado General Session

prayer initiative is being organized for the 2022 Colorado general session. The idea is to have an organized prayer and worship group at the capitol every day during the general session. They hope to draw from every part of the state, finding cities and legislative districts to take individual days.

If you are interested in helping, or just interested in knowing more, click here.

4. COVID Mandates

As COVID mandate deadlines continue to pull a noose around the jobs of too many hard working Americans, legal battles are being fought around the country and employers are being intimidated to pressure their employees to take the jab against their will and against their better judgement. And all of this is happening while off-patent drugs are essentially banned, the superior protection of natural immunity is being ignored, and lockdowns are again being implemented in some countries and contemplated by too many public health officials in this country.

I recently came across a comprehensive list of studies on the failure of compulsory interventions. This is an excellent, carefully written article on the general topic of government response to the pandemic and specific analyses (over 400 examples) of the failure of the lockdowns. This tyranny cannot be accepted as the new normal. It must be rejected as a failed experiment in government central control.

And, when Polis said the emergency was over early in December, he either didn’t understand it or didn’t mean it. 

Just this week he signed two more emergency executive orders, claiming he still has extraordinary authority because of the pandemic “emergency.” 

The executive orders, claiming authority for another 30 days, can be found here and here.

5. The Legacy of Paul Lewan

Paul Lewan, the founder of the technology company, Lewan and Associates, was a mentor to me and a dear friend for well over 50 years. He impacted thousands of lives for the better and I know their influence now circles the globe. After 90 years on this planet he was truly a man of faith who our Creator and Savior welcomed into God’s heavenly kingdom on Sunday, December 26.

Cherry Hills Community Church in Highlands Ranch will hold a memorial service for Paul on Saturday, January 8 at 10:30 AM. All are welcome to attend.

1.  Merry Christmas!

Every week, in preparation for the Lundberg Report I collect stories and information that I consider most relevant to the political scene here in Colorado. I have that list for this week, but for this Christmas edition of the Lundberg Report I am setting those stories aside and recommending to you two brief articles published by FoundationsofTruth.com.

Foundations of Truth is a website that generates articles on national and international issues every week, from a distinctly Biblical perspective. I recommend subscribing to their free weekly emails that introduce their most recent articles.

Here are the articles they have published, including the messages today, reminding us of the essence of  Christmas.

2.  Current Court Cases Concerning Vax Mandates

3.  Election Integrity Updates

4.  Breakfast Club Zoom call on Monday

____________________________________

1.  Emergency is Over, Let the Campaign Begin!

Congratulations to the Colorado governor for finally recognizing that the pandemic emergency is over! Late last week he declared it so on a Colorado Public Radio interview, which was widely reported nationwide. Finally the governor is admitting the emergency, with which he claimed legal authority to issue nearly 450 executive orders over the past 20 months, has passed …but did he really mean it?

Unfortunately, or maybe I should say unforgivably, accepted medical practices remain stuck in the politically correct mode of not allowing proven, safe, off-patent medications, such as Ivermectin, to be used in hospital settings. Additionally many medical systems are still firing employees who refuse to take the jab. These backward, totalitarian policies are limiting treatment options for desperately ill patients and they are creating staffing shortages which reduce patient care and available beds in too many Colorado hospitals. Polis still has not addressed these glaring issues. These issues are costing too many lives in hospitals, hospitals that should be havens for healing.

On top of this Polis is still incapable of looking at the evidence that natural immunity is at least equal, if not superior to any of the vaccines. He remains silent on this reality, still insisting that the jab is the one-size-fits-all solution for every Colorado citizen.

Finally, if he really meant what he said he would have ended the executive orders that are still in effect

It appears that that Polis has created a great sound bite for a 2022 campaign for governor, but I see little evidence that he knows, or maybe even cares for what he is talking about.


2. Current Court Cases Concerning Vax Mandates

Here is a fairly comprehensive and up to date overview of the court cases concerning the vax mandates from across the country. It was prepared by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. 

https://www.uschamber.com/employment-law/courts-are-ruling-on-vaccine-mandates-what-employers-need-to-know


3.  Election Integrity Updates

For those who are seeking the true facts about the 2020 election and the best ways to establish election integrity in future elections, here are some useful updates I found this week.

An election integrity hearing was held in Pima County, Arizona’s second largest county. Yet again, glaring examples were found of obvious election fraud, like towns where the number of votes counted were way more than the number of voters living in those towns. For a concise record of the proceedings click here.

Imprimus, a journal of Hillsdale College, recently published two great articles on election integrity. I highly recommend reading both:

Is Ensuring Election Integrity Anti-Democratic?

1.  Streamlining the Lundberg Report

2.  From Two Years to 20 Minutes (Caucus Training)

3.  Congress’ 1/6 Committee is Violating Our Bill of Rights

4. Breakfast Club Zoom call on Monday

____________________________________

1.  Streamlining the Lundberg Report

I have slightly restructured the Lundberg Report to make it a bit smoother read. Rather than putting it two clicks away from the front page of my website, it is now on the first page of the Lundberg Report menu selection and most of the back issues will be kept in the archives section of my website. I will only keep a few back issues listed below on the Lundberg Report first page.

2. From Two Years to 20 Minutes (Caucus Training)


To view one minute review click here

With the 2022 caucuses a little more than two months off, I recently edited a video I had produced several years ago which describes the benefits and process of the caucus system. It takes the average citizen about two years to figure out how a Colorado Republican caucus works. This is not because it is very complex, it is just because the caucus only happens once every two years.

At the first caucus they usually do not know what is happening and are not prepared to commit to any upcoming assembly meetings or take on any local responsibilities within the precinct. However, by the time the next caucus comes around (in two years), they are up to speed and can make a difference in their precinct caucus.

This video answers many of those basic questions and hopefully speeds up the learning process from two years to 20 minutes (the length of the video). I also have a very brief review video of one minute.

Here are the links to the two versions:

1 minute version https://youtu.be/VFaYnA950qw

20 minute version https://youtu.be/NatXPO31E-s

Please pass these links around. Lets make the 2022 caucuses a big start for the 2022 election.

 

3.  Congress’ 1/6 Committee is Violating Our Bill of Rights

The congressional committee investigating the January 6 events at the Capitol is violating several parts of the Bill of Rights in their blatantly partisan investigation of the January 6 events. One of the latest targets in their unconstitutional sights is John Eastman, a former attorney for President Trump and a man who I know to be of good character who broke no laws and yet they are trying to force him (and his phone company) to turn over information that violates his 4th, 5th and 6th amendment rights.

Here is a link that gives the details. It is an interview of Mr. Eastman on Twitter (yes, you need a Twitter account to view it, but I cannot find another source for these salient comments).

December 4, 2021

1. Protest in Mesa County 

2. SCOTUS Considers Roe

3.  Election Irregularities Hearing Next Week

4. The Vaccine Bottom Line for the Pharmaceutical Industry


5. Breakfast Club Zoom call on Monday

____________________________________

1. Protest in Mesa County

Colorado citizens from 22 counties were a part of the protest rally held in Grand Junction last Wednesday to stand in support of Mesa County clerk Tina Peters and her supporters whose homes were recently raided by the FBI and local authorities. The SWAT team raids took phones and computers, fishing for information about what the warrant called “wire-fraud.” Clerk Peters, a Gold Star Mom, had an image made of the Dominion server in her office before the Secretary of State and Dominion replaced all of the the 2020 election data on the server. 

As I have reported earlier, comparisons of the server before and after these changes revealed that thousands of files were deleted, including vital records of server communication with other computers during the 2020 election. All the circumstances point toward Clerk Peters’ preserving these elections records as the real reason for the FBI raids on these Western Slope families.

This protest in Mesa County is more evidence that We the People are rising up to defy the corruption we are uncovering in far too many parts of our government. In closing I remind the reader of this quote from the Declaration of Independence: 

“But when a long Train of Abuses and Usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a Design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their Right, it is their Duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future Security.”

2. SCOTUS Considers Roe

On December first, as thousands gathered outside of the U.S. Supreme Court building the Court heard oral arguments for the Dobbs case, a Mississippi law that bans abortion after 16 weeks.

After 60 million children have been legally killed over nearly half a century, it is about time that our nation starts defending life. Eliminating Roe v. Wade, or at the very least upholding this Mississippi law is just a start. Pray that our nation will come to it’s senses. Pray that the Court will make the right decision and pray that the nation will put away the practice of abortion and follow the path of protecting life.


3.  Election Irregularities Hearing Next Week

Elected Colorado officials, candidates, and the public will come together to discuss irregularities in the Colorado voting system, evaluate the evidence, then offer solutions and future courses of action.

It will be held in Colorado Springs, December 7th, 2021, from 3:30 PM to 8:30 PM. The hearing will be held at the Fervent Church, 3337 N Academy Blvd, Colorado Springs, CO 80917.  There is no fee to attend.  https://accfei.org/events/colorado-election-integrity-hearing/

1. Protest at Mesa County Office on December First

2. 200 Legislators Demand Biden Stop Vaccine Mandates

3.  Election Fraud Solution


4. Breakfast Club Zoom call on Monday

____________________________________

1. Protest at Mesa County Office on December First

There will be a protest on Wednesday of next week, December 1, at noon at the Mesa County old courthouse in Grand Junction. This is in support of the county clerk, Tina Peters and the others whose homes the FBI raided last week. This kind of heavy handed intimidation cannot be tolerated. It is time We the People exercise our First Amendment right to peaceably assemble to petition the government with our grievances.

I regret that on that date I am committed to a significant meeting with state legislators on Article V issues in California. None-the-less, I urge everyone who can to be a part of this peaceful protest in Mesa County.

2. 200 Legislators Demand Biden Stop Vaccine Mandates

I have been working with a group of state legislators from across the country who are forming a caucus based on the principles in the Tenth Amendment. This final amendment in the Bill of Rights says: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” 

I am encouraged by this group of state legislators who are stepping up to defend the authority and constitutional power of the states and the people.

Their first project is a bold stroke. It is a letter they are sending to the White House, demanding Biden back away from his unconstitutional vaccination mandates. Here is what Newsmax is saying about the letter, already signed by 200 legislators. Citizens can also join this effort by signing this demand by clicking here.
 

3.  Election Fraud Solution

Here is the best description I have seen of the election fraud that most probably stole the presidential election in 2020. And better yet, it is a complaint addressed to the U.S. Supreme Court. This takes some serious reading to properly digest all that is in it, but if you have any doubts about the claims of election fraud, you need to carefully read this complaint.

The remedy they are seeking is either throw out the electoral votes from the states that clearly had sufficient fraud to have thrown the 2020 election, and require the U.S. House and Senate to choose the President and Vice President as the 12th Amendment requires, or require those state legislatures to select new electors and re-tally the overall electoral college vote, or at a minimum require complete audits of those states, which will at the very least expose the fraud and hopefully show a path to fix the fraud for all future elections.

My compliments to Mike Lindell for developing this complaint which contains a comprehensive description of the 2020 election fraud. I pray that the Court will not turn a blind eye to this matter. If we are to continue and prosper with our republic, it must be must be settled, once and for all.

The complaint can be downloaded here.

November 22, 2021

Here is an addendum to last week’s report, which was sent out early. So much is happening so fast…

1. Protest at Mesa County Office on December First

2. Civil Suit Filed Against Colorado Secretary of State

3. Protest at Jeffco Department of Health Today 

4. Breakfast Club Zoom call on Monday

____________________________________

1. Protest at Mesa County Office on December First

In response to all that is happening in Mesa County with Clerk Peters and the FBI raids, many people are working on organizing a peaceful protest outside of the Mesa County offices at noon on Wednesday, December first. I have no more details at this time, but will pass them on as they become available.


2. Civil Suit Filed Against Colorado Secretary of State

Representative Ron Hanks and several county officials have filed a civil suit against Secretary of State Griswold. They are demanding a jury trial to examine three things: Did the Secretary of State and Dominion Voting Systems violate the law when they destroyed 2020 election records, is the secretary’s emergency rule banning third-party audits legal and were the election equipment used in the 2020 election properly certified? The relief they are seeking is to have audits conducted on all of the results from the 2020 election.

A more detailed description of the lawsuit can be found here. The actual complaint filed with the court is available here.

3. Protest at Jeffco Department of Health Today 

Here are the details of a protest and press conference in Jeffco today:

10AM ~ Press Conference & Peaceful Protest 
11AM ~ Meeting Begins

November 18, 2021

I am sending out this week’s Lundberg Report early,
as there are some time sensitive and breaking news items that couldn’t wait until Saturday.

1. FBI Raids Homes of Mesa County Clerk and Her Supporters

2. Update on the Fund to Challenge Colorado’s  Open Primary

3. CDC Has Zero Evidence That Natural Immunity Spreads Virus

4. The Test is in the Mail

5. Breakfast Club Zoom call on Monday

____________________________________

1. FBI Raids Homes of Mesa County Clerk and Her Supporters

The big story is troubling news from the Western Slope, which has received very little media attention. 

Early Tuesday morning (about 6:00 AM) the FBI raided the Mesa County Clerk and Recorder’s home. Later that morning they raided Sherrona Bishop’s home, who has worked with the clerk, Tina Peters, on election integrity issues. The FBI literally broke through Sherrona’s front door, and they then raided the homes of other people who had worked with Sherrona and the Clerk. According to the report I received the FBI took their electronic equipment (phones, computers, and storage devices).

As I understand it they treated this like a SWAT team raid, with automatic weapons and had a warrant with vague accusations. It sounds more like they were there to intimidate and silence than actually carry out legitimate police activity. At the very minimum, these raids were way out of proportion to the circumstances. 

My speculation is the report, giving the details about the crimes committed by the Colorado Secretary of State and Dominion Voting Systems when they destroyed 2020 election records, is causing them to panic and try to distract and discredit Tina Peters. If Clerk Peters is guilty of anything it is preserving those records (which is her primary responsibility as the clerk and recorder for the county), thus enabling the report on the destruction of election records to be documented. Of course, anyone can read this very public report. Click here to read it for yourself. This just in – a second report on the Mesa County election server is now available. Download it here.

These politically motivated FBI raids are becoming far too common. The early morning raids at the homes of Roger Stone, James O’Keefe, Tina Peters and many of their associates look far too much like ugly political tactics from jack-booted thugs. This is not the FBI I held in great honor and respect when I was much younger.

One more point. Those who actually carried out these raids may say they are just following orders, but when the orders are an assault on the unalienable rights of the citizens, everyone carrying out those orders shares in the responsibility for the actions taken. I urge all law enforcement officers to carefully consider this principle.

2. Update on the Fund to Challenge Colorado’s  Open Primary

In 2000 the Supreme Court struck down California’s blanket primary by a 7-2 vote in a majority opinion authored by the late Justice Antonin Scalia, as an infringement on the First Amendment’s freedom not to associate.

Colorado’s Open Primary law is very similar and should also be declared an unconstitutional intrusion on a political party’s freedom not to associate. The First Amendment’s protection of the freedom to associate includes the freedom not to associate.

California Democratic Party v. Jones, 530 U.S. 567, 574 (2000)

The Claremont Institute has established a fund to help pay the expenses for a federal lawsuit against the open primary system in Colorado. This is going through their Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence, under the leadership of Dr. John Eastman. Unfortunately, last week there was a glitch on their contribution page, preventing a credit card donation. That has been fixed and the fund is ready to receive donations.

To contribute go to https://ccjlitigation.com and designate your donation to the Colorado Open Primary Constitutional Challenge Litigation Fund.  If all Colorado citizens  who think non-party voters should not be choosing party candidates gave something, we should be able to fund this critical need for honest and reliable primaries in Colorado.

The Claremont Institute is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that relies on the support of individual donors to continue its work. Gifts to the Claremont Institute are tax-deductible. 

Again, to contribute go to https://ccjlitigation.com and designate your donation to the Colorado Open Primary Constitutional Challenge Litigation Fund. 


3. CDC Has Zero Evidence That Natural Immunity Spreads Virus

This video from Epoch Times shows the CDC has zero evidence that anyone with natural immunity has ever spread the virus. So much for their “following the science” argument. The first eight minutes of the video gives the complete story.

4. The Test is in the Mail

This letter to editor of the Aspen Times says it all:

Here’s how to ensure no one cheats on the written exam for a driver’s license or to be a doctor, nurse, fireman, policeman, lawyer or CPA. Mail the tests to applicants, have them complete the the tests at home, and mail them back. We know there couldn’t be any cheating because that’s how elections are conducted.
