____________________________________

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.

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:

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.

____________________________________

1. The Larimer County Protest on Monday

My special report sent out on Tuesday (and available here by scrolling down below this current report) gave most of the details about the huge protest we held over the Larimer County mask and vaccine mandates. The only further observation I make here is that it was a harbinger of what we saw across the nation on Tuesday. A large number of average citizens have had it with a government that seems to be trying to run everything. As I said in my speech on Monday, this doesn’t look like the home of the free or the land of the brave… or maybe it does, because We the People are waking up!

2. The Election on Tuesday

…Which brings me to the second issue for this week. We the People are on the move. Across Colorado the big story was a revolution in many school board races. One group that was tracking 47 school board conservative, “reform” candidates saw 24 of them win, flipping several district boards to a conservative majority. This is epic. Several cycles ago about five districts shifted that direction, but never have we seen such widespread support all across the state.

Nationally the big story is in Virginia, where the Republicans swept the field in the statewide races and won their House back from the previous, solid Democrat control. I see this as particularly significant for Colorado, because the two states have a very similar political composition and recent history.  In a nut shell, if Virginia can flip this dramatically, it is possible in Colorado.

With the 2021 election now in the rearview mirror, contests for 2022 are already ramping up.


3. Should Republicans Chose Republican Candidates?

In 2016 a ballot question (Proposition 108) opened up the primary elections to unaffiliated voters, giving them the choice of voting with a Republican or Democrat ballot. Today, with more unaffiliated voters than Republicans or Democrats, more primary ballots are sent to unaffiliated voters than to voters to either party. This is not a valid way for a party to select their nominee for the general elections. 

Not going into all of the specific details of this system at this time, suffice it to say that this open primary system was unconstitutionally forced on to both major parties and last September the Republican State Central Committee unanimously voted to challenge this in Federal court. The Claremont Institute has established a fund to defray some of the expenses for this most valid legal action, as their Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence, under the leadership of Dr. John Eastman, is taking on this project.

This is a significant opportunity to set one aspect of Colorado’s election laws in proper order. If we are successful it will help set the voting systems in Colorado back onto the right track. I hope everyone will chip in to help. I will be sending them funds this week.

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

I will keep you posted on the progress of this lawsuit and the funds we raise for this very important cause.

4. The 2020 Election -One Year Later

It has now been a full year that we have been wrestling with the questions surrounding the 2020 election and at times it seems we are not much closer to the full facts than we were 12 months ago. However, bit by bit the details have begun to emerge. Arizona conducted an extensive audit and canvasing of many voters in Maricopa County. They found the ballots they examined reflect the vote totals reported last year. But over a quarter of a million of those ballots (about 10%) are missing  the digital image of those ballots, which is supposed to be the verification that those are the original ballots. Similar big questions have emerged in the other swing states as well 

Here in Colorado evidence has been uncovered showing that the Secretary of State and Dominion Voting Systems have illegally destroyed 2020 election records. Just this week I found the online link to the deposition of Eric Coomer, former director for product strategy and security for Dominion Voting Systems. His testimony was given in regards to one of the law suits that arose out of the questions about the role Dominion played in the 2020 elections. If you have the time to digest this tedious document, you will find it is quite revealing about this major player in the Dominion system.

Special Report

Thousands Join Protest of Larimer County Mask and Passport Mandates in Fort Collins


photo by K. Lundberg


On November 2, 2021 in a field near the Larimer County Health Department about 2,000 citizens gathered to protest the mandates from the health department. Many asked the director of the department to step down, not only because of the mandates, but also because of his chilling request to other Larimer County officials to remove a truck trailer with the words “Resist the Fascists” painted on its side. The trailer was on the private property where the protest was held.

@steveglassphotographer

I spoke briefly at the rally, when the snow was flying!

Following the rally four state legislators who represent parts of Larimer County sent a letter to the county commissioners asking that the director be removed from his position.

The letter reads:

 

November 1, 2021

Larimer County Commissioners:

By now, you’ve certainly seen the email from Tom Gonzales, the County’s Public Health Director. And I trust you’ve seen the legitimate debate that has ensued.

“It is clear that Mr. Gonzales attempted to use his government connections to quash the free speech rights of a local citizen. He clearly doesn’t understand the Constitutional limits that are placed on the government in order to protect the Natural Rights of the Citizens.

It is clear that Mr. Gonzales asked you to compromise your oath of office in order to bend the rules to remove the message on the trailer.

It is clear that Mr. Gonzales is unsuited for this office if he is so intimidated by the peaceful free speech of a private citizen.

The undersigned members of the Colorado General Assembly urge the County Commissioners to direct the Board of Health to immediately terminate Tom Gonzales as the Public Health Director. Larimer County deserves a thoughtful Director of Public Health that understands that the Rights of the Citizens do not end when his feelings are offended.

Senator Rob Woodward                     Minority Leader Hugh McKean

Senator Barb Kirkmeyer                     Representative Mike Lynch

The people of Larimer County have spoken loudly and clearly. It is now time for the county officials to take notice and follow the the will of We the People. It is time for We the People to continue to “…peaceably… assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

____________________________________

1. The Larimer County Protest is Monday

The First Amendment says, in part; “Congress shall make no law… abridging the freedom of speech… or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

On Monday, November 1, next door to the Larimer County Health Department We the People will be exercising our freedom of speech by peaceably assembling and petitioning our government to redress their grievous mandates of universal masking and their radical proposal to establish a vaccine passport system for businesses and other venues.

This flyer gives most of the details:


I have also been asked to briefly speak, along with other local officials. We don’t know how many will attend, but your presence will certainly help us send a strong message to the Larimer County health department that we are not at all amused or pleased with their heavy handed edicts. I wonder if this might be some of the first-fruits of a fresh wave of freedom across our state and nation?


2. Public Health Director Gets a Lesson in the First Amendment

The director of Public Health in Larimer County was caught on the county’s email system, which is available for all of the public to see, asking other county officials to get rid of a trailer, parked on private ground, with the slogan “Resist the Fascists.” Here is the actual email:

Here is the picture he put in the email: 
Hmmm… he seems to be taking this personally.

To the credit of Sheriff Smith, here is Justin Smith’s response which was a short lesson in the First Amendment:

I am grateful for the Sheriff’s response. I also have tremendous concerns that the director of public health could even contemplate such chilling censorship.  These attitudes have no place in Larimer County government. We the People must demand better.

By the way, the private ground this trailer is parked on is where the protest will be held on Monday. Just look for the big white sign (on the trailer) that reminds us all what action should be taken against any government policy that tries to strip away our inalienable rights.

3.  Its Now or Never to Vote in 2021

The 2021 election wraps up on Tuesday. If you haven’t yet voted, please get it done! I have already published my recommendations, but here they are again.

Concerning the issues on my ballot:

Biggest Tax Increase Proposal in Recent Memory

I did the math (well… my daughter helped with the more complex formula), and it amounts to a 365% tax increase for the Berthoud Library district! The district is asking the community to increase the property tax levied against all properties in the library district. They are saying that it will “only” cost $2.97 each month for each $100,000 of residential property value. However, it is over four times that rate for commercial property and with the recent increases in property assessments, it means even higher taxes in coming years. 

When I added the $2.97 per month, per $100,000, it translated into a 280% increase on my library district property tax bill for 2022. With my 2021 property assessment increase added in the new tax burden for the library district will be 365% higher than last year, if this ballot measure passes. With a conservative estimate of a 4% annual increase for the anticipated 30 year life of this total tax, I will end up paying $12,459. That is a bit more than “$2.97 per month.”

For the statewide questions I recommend supporting 78 and 120 but opposing 119.

Amendment 78 will require the state legislature to approve the spending of all money that comes through state accounts, including “custodial money.” Today the legislature does not have any authority over billions of dollars that come from the Federal government and many other sources. Often the governor or even individual departments are free to dictate much policy outside of the oversight of the General Assembly by spending money not appropriated by the General Assembly.

As a former member of the Joint Budget Committee, I know that this often forces the legislature to tolerate policies that they, as the people’s representatives, would never adopt.

Amendment 78 will create better accountability and transparency for all of the dollars our state government spends.


Proposition 120 is a tax reduction
 that the legislature (and governor) highjacked in the 2021 session. It was intended to lower all residential tax assessments, but the legislature then changed the statutory definitions of the words used in 120 and the tax reductions now will only apply to multi-family housing and lodging properties. 

It should be noted that almost all Republicans in the house voted against the bill that made these changes, but every senator present on the day it was approved in that body is listed as having voted for this double-cross of the people’s initiative process. I wonder if any of those senators pondered the opening paragraphs of Article V of the state constitution, which clearly states that the people reserve their sovereign authority to make laws in Colorado (https://ballotpedia.org/Article_V,_Colorado_Constitution).

Even though 120 is now only a shell of its intended purpose I recommend the people pass this initiative, if for no other reason than to tell the legislators and the governor that we are not at all amused when the governor and legislature play such dirty tricks on the people’s sovereign right to establish the laws for the state of Colorado.

Proposition 119 sets up a learning enrichment program that at first blush looks like it might empower parents. It was certainly constructed to look like that. However, upon closer examination, you will find that it sets up a board that is essentially self-appointing, and will be given well over $100,000,000 every year to spend as they see fit, with no oversight from the legislature, and virtually no oversight from other government authorities.

I am a loud no on 119.

1. Larimer County Mask Mandate and Vaccine Passport System

2. Rally Against the Mandate and Passport in Fort Collins

1. Larimer County Mask Mandate and Vaccine Passport System

Last Wednesday, October 20, the Larimer County board of public health established a mask mandate for all indoor public spaces. They also announced a vaccine passport system for all businesses who wish to be free of the mask mandate, to begin on Monday, November 1.

This mandate is to remain in effect until the following criteria is met:

  1. Less than 65 COVID-19 patients in the Larimer County hospitals;
  2. Intensive Care Unit utilization at less than 90% of usual and customary levels; 
  3. A Larimer County 7-Day Case Rate per 100k of < 300; 
  4. A Larimer County 7-Day Test Positivity Rate of < 10%

Notably absent from all of these orders is any accommodation for individuals who have attained natural immunity by recovering from the disease. Their orders ring hollow in the light of their failure to accept the strong evidence that natural immunity is the most effective means of protection from contracting the disease.  -Whatever happened to “following the science?”

2. Rally Against the Mandate and Passport Planned for November 1

At this time I do not have more details on this rally than what is listed below, but November 1 is when the “voluntary” vaccine passport system kicks into gear and this rally looks like an opportunity to publicly express your concern with the health department’s masking and passport policies.

3. School Board Voter Guides are Online

Two weeks ago I reported on my recommendations for some of the school board races in Larimer County. I still have some printed voter guides for those races in Larimer County. If you would like to distribute some, please contact me. PDF copies can be found here for those races and several other districts across Colorado.


4. Disinformation on Misinformation: Your Tax Dollars at Work

Here is a comic book published by a federal government agency (called the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency, www.CISA.gov) portraying those who have doubts about the government vaccine policies as criminals and foreign agents. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black. This looks to me like blatant disinformation trying to debunk what they are calling misinformation.

Many of us have real concerns about how natural immunity is not recognized as at least as effective as vaccines, and we have strong concerns with medical protocols that do not allow the use of off patent drugs that have been effective for many recovering from COVID. But the government seems to be trying to brand such attitudes (and people) as subversive and dangerous agents of misinformation.

Here is another “comic book” produced by CISA: 

This one is on “election disinformation.”

I am told that election judges in Boulder County are required to read books like these to qualify as judges. Hmmm…

I do agree with one thing they stress on the CISA website. Only deal with trusted sources for your information. It’s just that when I read their material, it doesn’t strike me as very trustworthy.

1. Final Redistricting Maps

This week the final maps for the state house and senate districts were approved by the legislative redistricting commission. Here in Larimer County most of the rural areas were lumped in with Boulder County and two safe Republican districts were turned on their heads. House district 49 was flipped to become a safe Democrat seat.  Senate district 15 has become a tossup, leaning slightly toward the Democrat side.

Overall the big story is the Senate districts, which were reasonably well balanced with the earlier maps, emerged on the very last day flipped to a big advantage for the Democrats. The final step in the process is a sign-off by the state Supreme Court, which I expect they will approve.

This turn to the left in the final hours is not a real surprise. It is how it worked out in the 2001 and 2011 redistricting as well. The redistricting commission idea was an interesting change, but it didn’t change the final product.

Download the senate map here.

Down load the house map here.


2. Another Way to Deal with Pandemics

Over the past 18 months I have reported on the COVID issue several times. I have tried to present an accurate picture of the facts as I see them. This past week I found a very different perspective in Governing magazine, which is a middle of the road publication for people involved in government. I pass this on to those who may be interested, not because I agree with the author, but because we need to know what others are thinking and in this case advocating. 

In this article the CEO for a public health policy nonprofit insists that we need federal control of public health because the state and local officials are not well funded and do not have enough power to do what this person thinks should be done to deal with a pandemic.

I believe the opposite is true (read my chapter on Public Health in UNMASKED 2020 for those details). However, in the interest of giving all of the news, here is one perspective, of which we should be aware.


3. SOS Suit Against Mesa County Clerk

The civil suit that the Colorado Secretary of State (SOS)  brought against the Mesa County clerk and recorder to remove her from election duties for the 2021 election has been decided by a state district judge. The decision was to grant the SOS power to replace the clerk for this election.

I read the decision and find it very troubling, for this has essentially given the SOS the precedent to relieve duly elected county clerks of their election duties if they disagree with the SOS. This ruling also ignores the obvious fact that the SOS and Dominion have blatantly broken state and federal law by destroying 2020 election records.

The judge’s decision can be found here and an interesting press conference that the Mesa County clerk held before the decision was handed down can be found here.

This does not settle anything in Mesa County, for the real question is what the SOS and Dominion did to the 2020 election and the subsequent election records. It is also interesting to note that the decision only deals with the clerk’s authority for the 2021 election, which will wrap up in a few weeks. As I read it, she would then be back in charge for the 2022 election.


4.  FBI Billboard

In the light of the U.S. Attorney General’s suggestion that parents speaking out at school board meetings could be considered domestic terrorists, here are our tax dollars being used in a very troubling way. This huge billboard is along I-25, a few miles south of Loveland. 

It is one more example of the “woke” world being crammed down our throats under the Biden administration. This message strikes me as a way to use big brother to pit neighbor against neighbor. The very concept of “hate crimes” is dangerous enough as we can now be criminally liable for our thoughts, not just our actions. But this is literally advertising to the public to turn our neighbors in for a perceived “hate crime.” 

With hundreds of thousands of people flooding our southern border the Department of Justice should be down there looking for real terrorists who disguised themselves as refugees, not trying to stir up manufactured divisions within our communities.

Shame on the U.S. Department of Justice for this dangerous experiment in “social justice.”

1. King Polis Issues Another Edict

2. All COVID-19 Vaccines in the US are Optional, Experimental Drugs

3. Biggest Tax Increase Proposal in Recent Memory

4. Arizona Official Admits Maricopa County Withheld Election Records from Senate Auditors

5. Breakfast Club Zoom call on Monday

—————————————————-


1. King Polis Issues Another Edict

He calls it an executive order, but judging from the fact that Polis is still operating under his perpetual declared emergency, which the law clearly envisions should rarely exceed 30 days, I consider his orders to be closer to an autocratic ruler than a duly elected servant of the people. Further, the new executive order states that he is lifting some of the orders, partly to facilitate the forcing of state employees to take the experimental vaccine (more on the experimental part in the next story).

So far Polis has been operating under emergency orders for 20 of his 33 months in office.

 

2. All COVID-19 Vaccines in the US are Optional, Experimental Drugs

Yes, you read that right, there are no formally approved COVID-19 vaccines in the US. All of the “jabs” are technically experimental and Federal law prohibits forcing anyone to take experimental drugs. Senator Ron Johnson made this very clear in an interview this past week. The details, which I strongly recommend everyone read, can be found here.

 

3. Biggest Tax Increase Proposal in Recent Memory

I did the math (well… my daughter helped with the more complex formula), and it amounts to a 365% tax increase for the Berthoud Library district! The district is asking the community to increase the property tax levied against all properties in the library district. They are saying that it will “only” cost $2.97 each month for each $100,000 of residential property value.

When I added the $2.97 per month, per $100,000, it translated into a 280% increase on my library district property tax bill for 2022. With my 2021 property assessment increase added in the new tax burden for the library district will be 365% higher than last year, if this ballot measure passes. With a conservative estimate of 4% annual increase for the anticipated 30 year life of this total tax, I will end up paying $12,459. That is a bit more than “$2.97 per month.”

 

4. Arizona Official Admits Maricopa County Withheld Election Records from Senate Auditors

If you have a Twitter account click on this link to watch an incredible admission of an official from Arizona’s Maricopa County. He stated that they blatantly ignored a subpoena from the Arizona Senate to turn over all election records by withholding archived records that had been deleted from their election equipment server. This is an astounding testimony that once again verifies that the Maricopa election officials intentionally hid these facts of the election from the auditors appointed by the Arizona Senate.

Only crooks pull such stunts. How much more information does the public need to understand that the 2020 election was stolen?

1. Three Statewide Measures on the 2021 Ballot:

2. Censorship and COVID-19

3. Some Details of Arizona Audit Report

4. Breakfast Club Zoom call on Monday

—————————————————-


1. There are Three Statewide Measures on the 2021 Ballot: Amendment 78, Proposition 119 and Proposition 120.

I recommend supporting 78 and 120, but opposing 119.

Amendment 78 will require the state legislature to approve the spending of all money that comes through state accounts, including “custodial money.” Today the legislature does not have any authority over billions of dollars that come from the Federal government and many other sources. Often the governor or even individual departments are free to dictate much policy outside of the oversight of the General Assembly by spending money not appropriated by the General Assembly.

As a former member of the Joint Budget Committee I know that this often forces the legislature to tolerate policies that they, as the people’s representatives, would never adopt.

Amendment 78 will create better accountability and transparency for all of the dollars our state government spends.


Proposition 120 is a tax reduction
 which the legislature (and governor) highjacked in the 2021 session. It was intended to lower all residential tax assessments, but the legislature then changed the statutory definitions of the words used in 120 and the tax reductions now will only apply to multi family housing and lodging properties. 

It should be noted that almost all Republicans in the house voted against the bill that made these changes, but every senator present on the day it was approved in that body is listed as having voted for this double cross of the people’s initiative process. I wonder if any of those senators pondered the opening paragraphs of Article V of the state constitution, which clearly states that the people reserve their soveriegn authority to make laws in Colorado (https://ballotpedia.org/Article_V,_Colorado_Constitution).

Even though 120 is now only a shell of it’s intended purpose I recommend the people pass this initiative, if for no other reason than to tell the legislators and the governor that we are not at all amused when the governor and legislature plays such dirty tricks on the people’s sovereign right to establish the laws for the state of Colorado.

Proposition 119 sets up a learning enrichment program that at first blush looks like it might empower parents. It was certainly constructed to look like that. However, upon closer examination you will find that it sets up a board that is essentially self-appointing, and will be given well over $100,000,000 every year to spend as they see fit, with no oversight from the legislature, and virtually no oversight from other government authorities.

I am a loud no on 119.

 

2. Censorship and COVID-19

Several weeks ago I sent an op-ed piece to some Larimer County newspapers concerning COVID-19 (which I also published in the September 11 Lundberg Report. I applaud the Berthoud Surveyor for immediately publishing the piece. I did not hear from any other paper until this week.

Instead of agreeing to publishing the piece, or sending a polite rejection, this editor required that I first defend and reference several propositions within my column. I found his debate with me to smack of a soft censorship that is far outside the tradition of newspaper’s encouraging the free exchange of ideas through their editorial pages. I also strongly doubt such scrutiny was given to the op-ed piece from the Larimer County director of public health that the paper ran, to which my piece was responding.

However, I also grant that this editor’s questions, on their own merit, would have some validity if I were seeking to have my opinions published in a research journal. Therefore I will give my answers to the questions posed, but not to be published in his local paper. I give them to you, the reader of this weekly report.

The first point was a demand to give specific reference to my statement: “But the most current studies are showing that vaccines do not provide long term protection.”

First, the vaccines lack of durability is exactly why there is such a strong call for booster shots. Additionally, a recent analysis from Israel, which is one of the most vaccinated populations in the world, gives clear evidence that the vaccines are losing their protection as a high number of current infections are among the vaccinated population. For more information go to: https://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/312538.

The editor then asked for the evidence that natural immunity is more effective than vaccines. BTW, natural immunity means those who have recovered from the infection. The strongest and most positive proof can be found in that same study from Israel, where natural immunity is many times more effective in preventing reinfection of COVID-19.

His final demand is more difficult to explain, so I print it here. I am also giving you his exact words for this confusing question as it illustrates how very different the COVID issue is perceived by different perspectives.

First, he was responding to my article, which said: 

“I detect more corporate greed and less medical compassion from policies that discourage, or outright ban in too many situations, the use of off patent drugs such as hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin. Doctors need all of the tools for treatment, not just the ones that are the most profitable.”

His observations:

“If I’m understanding this correctly, you are suggesting that doctors who refuse to prescribe hydroxychloroquine or ivermectin are doing so out of “greed.” Do you have evidence that this is the case? Additionally, you appear to be suggesting that you know better than medical professionals what tools for treatment they should be using. Can you provide evidence for, or a medically trained source who states, what tools for treatment doctors should be using, and that doctors are pursuing only “the most profitable” treatments? Can you please provide a short list of the “most profitable” treatments to which you are referring?”

He seems to be missing what I consider a self-evident point. The doctors are not greedy, but the medical industry as a whole is quite anxious to promote the most profitable treatments, which are high priced, patented drugs like remdesivir and monoclonal antibody treatments (https://www.fda.gov/consumers/consumer-updates/know-your-treatment-options-covid-19). The off patent drugs, which have shown some promise of helping many patients are discouraged or outright banned by many medical and pharmaceutical boards. I am not aware of any scientific study stating that medical and pharmaceutical boards are banning or discouraging the use of off patent drugs, but ask anyone who has recently tried to find a prescription, or fill a prescription for Ivermectin. This information is so common one does not need a “study,” nor do you need a medical professional to tell you what just about everybody knows who has tried to get Ivermectin to treat COVID-19.  

My reason for including this discussion in this week’s report is to review some important concepts about COVID-19 and sound the alarm that too many newspapers are joining the woke crowd with their own form of censorship.

As I said in response to this editor’s letter to me:

“Thank you for at least giving my submission some attention, but please, also give some consideration to the chilling effect such requirements you have demanded from me has on the principle of promoting the free exchange of ideas, which local newspapers have championed for generations.”

3. Some Details of Arizona Audit Report

The audit of the 2020 election from Arizona was hailed by the media (in reports issue before the audit was released) as a verification that Biden beat Trump in Arizona. However, a closer analysis of that report and a citizen led sample canvassing of the voters reveals that:

1. Report on Mesa County Election Counting System

2. Arizona Audit Report

3. Breakfast Club Zoom call on Monday

—————————————————–

1. Report on Mesa County Election Counting System

The first report from a forensic examination of the Mesa County election counting machine for the 2020 election was released late last week (after last week’s Lundberg report was published). The 82 page report can be found here. The essence of the report is described in the following quotes from page four of the executive summary:

“Forensic examination found that election records, including data described in the Federal Election Commission’s 2002 Voting System Standards (VSS) mandated by Colorado law as certification requirements for Colorado voting systems, have been destroyed on Mesa County’s voting system, by the system vendor and the Colorado Secretary of State’s office. Because similar system modifications were reportedly performed upon county election servers across the state, it is possible, if not likely, that such data destruction in violation of state and federal law has occurred in numerous other counties. 

“The extent and manner of destruction of the data comprising these election records is consequential, precluding the possibility of any comprehensive forensic audit of the conduct of any involved election. This documented destruction also undermines the conclusion that these Colorado voting systems and accompanying vendor and Colorado Secretary of State-issued procedures could meet the requirements of Colorado and Federal law, and consequently vitiates the premise of the Colorado Secretary of State certification of these systems for use in Colorado. ”

A shorthand version of the report is that the Colorado Secretary of State (SOS) and the election equipment vendor have destroyed electronic election records, which is a violation of state and Federal law. The destruction of these records makes a full audit of the 2020 election in Colorado impossible. 

This forensic examination of the Mesa County system was possible only because the Clerk and Recorder, Tina Peters, had a mirror image of the machine’s hard drive made before and after the changes ordered by the SOS.

It is ironic, and maybe predictable, that the SOS has tried to discredit Tina Peters by claiming she disclosed private passwords for the election equipment. I am told, however, that those passwords are held by the SOS, not the Clerk, and therefore it is not possible for Clerk Peters to have disclosed these passwords that she does not possess.

Because Clerk Peters did her job and preserved all of the election records in Mesa County much is finally coming to light about how the current SOS is handling the elections in Colorado. 

I hope all County Clerks in the state pay close attention to this problem and take immediate action to do all that is necessary to preserve all of the information held by their election counting systems, for all elections. To have a credible election system we must have counting equipment that is accurate and fully verifiable. This includes the preservation of all election records as the law clearly requires.

Yesterday, Friday afternoon, the Arizona Senate released their audit report on the 2020 election in Maricopa County. As of this writing there are very different reports being published for this report. The main-stream news is saying the audit verifies the accuracy of the 2020 presidential election results. However, they broke their story several hours before the release of the report, claiming they had an advance copy of the report. I wonder if they even read the report.

The actual report, when it was released, cast a distinct shadow on several aspects of the vote and counting process, pointing out that nearly 4000 voters were registered after Arizona’s deadline for registering, 74,000 other ballots cannot yet be accounted for in the county’s records, and 18,000 registered voters were removed from the registration roles immediately after the votes were counted. 

Additionally, Dr. V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai, an MIT-trained data analyst hired by the Senate Republicans. reported that there were also about 17,000 ballots that were duplicates, with no unique, signed envelopes for these duplicates. His Tweet can be found here.
 
Hmmm… there are a lot of serious questions to be answered before any serious conclusions are drawn. Remember, the margin for the final certified vote tally was only about 10,000 votes.

1. Are Vaccine Mandates for Employment a Form of Extortion in Colorado?

2. Global Warming Forum at White House (sort of)

3. Election Integrity Workshop

4. Breakfast Club Zoom call on Monday

—————————————————–

1. Are Vaccine Mandates for Employment a Form of Extortion in Colorado?

I recently had this question posed to me and so I did what I advise anyone to do: look up the law and see what it says. It can be found at https://codes.findlaw.com/co/title-18-criminal-code/co-rev-st-sect-18-3-207.html.

In Colorado criminal extortion is threatening to hurt somebody, including physical, economic, or other listed injuries to induce them to do something against their will. It is aggravated (higher penalty) if it involves using a chemical or biological agent. Criminal extortion is a felony.

Extortion is a complicated issue and criminal extortion may or may not apply to an employer related vaccine mandate, but I recommend that employers and employees look into this before complying with these mandates that the White House is trying to implement by executive order and many local officials are strongly recommending.

In last week’s report I challenged current government policies that:

  1. severely restrict COVID treatments, particularly prohibiting off patent drugs, 
  2. fail to recognize the superior efficacy of natural immunity,
  3. and lean perilously close to requiring universally mandated vaccines (and endless boosters).

The White House is now trying to force many employers to mandate COVID vaccines and many people are facing the prospect of losing their jobs or bowing to the experimental jab(s), against their will. That sounds like extortion to me.

Just because Joe says it’s so, doesn’t make it right or necessarily legal…

2. Global Warming Forum at White House

Speaking of the White House, yesterday (Friday) they held a forum on “Major Economies on Energy and Climate.” It was live streamed, sort of. The video displayed on the White House website gave comments from Joe, Blinken and Kerry, but about 26 minutes into the program it cuts out, as the feed is cut off in mid-sentence, and that seems to be all there is to the forum.

It was a weird show. They put it in a small studio set with everyone at tiny desks, all socially distanced. The narrative is stark and foreboding; human life is on the brink of collapsing (they called it an existential threat). All fires, floods and other catastrophes are due to human induced global warming and we have one last chance to cure it all if we just stop creating carbon dioxide (net zero).

And then, as I mentioned above, the feed is cut and the final 16 minutes is just a title page with no audio. This report they presented, on what amounts to their prediction of the end of the world, was about as well organized as their rout out of Kabul.

Way to go Joe. You are batting 1000.

3. Election Integrity Workshop

Last weekend I gave a workshop on election integrity at the Truth and Liberty Coalition Conference in Woodland Park. They recorded the 50 minute session and it is now online. It can be viewed at:.https://rumble.com/vmeroc-2021-truth-and-liberty-coalition-conference-election-integrity-with-kevin-l.html

At the workshop I announced that the Arizona audit of the 2020 election in Maricopa County would be made public this week. It didn’t happen, yet. Arizona State Senator Townsend assures me that the date certain for the report’s release will be next week, on Friday. Stay tuned. The audit results will not tell us everything, but it should be one of the most useful data points we have had, so far, in unravelling the truth about the 20202 election.

1. Near Universal Vaccinations?

2. New Evidence of Fraud in Arizona

3. 9/11/01

4. Breakfast Club Zoom call on Monday

—————————————————–

1. Near Universal Vaccinations?

So, Joe says he will overrule the governors who are pushing back on some of the masking mandates and universal vaccination mandates. I am sorry for only using his first name, but to be called Mr. President you need to understand and respect the Constitution that creates that position. Joe is not king and we are not his subjects. I am grateful that some governors still understand this important point.

Here in Larimer County the Director of Public Health is also calling for everyone to get vaccinated. He says that is the only path forward. Last week I wrote a response to his comments and sent it off to the local papers. The Berthoud Surveyor Published my response, but so far I have not heard or seen anything from the Loveland and Fort Collins papers…

It is somewhat lengthy, but here are my thoughts. If you agree, please help me pass this on, as it appears most papers will not be much help.

The Public Health Director for Larimer County, Tom Gonzales, recently wrote an opinion column on COVID-19. His information on the impact the Delta variant has had on the current spread of the disease in the county is valid data which we all must consider. However, I have strong reservations with his solution, which is calling for “near universal vaccination.” This policy fails to consider all of the evidence and looks more like a commercial for the CDC’s tired and not-so-true line that vaccines are the only way out of this epidemic.

Vaccines have an important role to play in protecting those who are most vulnerable to the worst possible effects of COVID-19. But the most current studies are showing that vaccines do not provide long term protection. Universal vaccination will not get us “back to normal,” it will create a new normal where the entire population will be subject to endless booster shots, which amounts to more experimentation than many of us are willing to accept. More evidence is showing that natural immunity, for the millions of people in our country who have recovered from the disease, is more lasting and more effective than the vaccines. Natural immunity should be officially recognized as at least the equivalent of vaccination.

Additionally, there has been a strong resistance on the part of the medical establishment to allow the use of many treatments that have shown to be useful, but are not the latest, greatest, and most expensive solutions from Big Pharma. I detect  more corporate greed and less medical compassion from policies that discourage, or outright ban in too many situations, the use of off patent drugs such as hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin. Doctors need all of the tools for treatment, not just the ones that are the most profitable.

Finally, calls for businesses and institutions to require vaccinations, especially when there is not any acknowledgment that natural immunity is also a significant protection from transmitting the disease, is chillingly close to a tyrannical society where individual freedom is repressed and the government and institutions such as the tech giants, hospital systems, and big corporate businesses overwhelm our values of freedom and self-determination, upon which our nation was founded and has flourished.

COVID-19 is a severe problem. There is no single, simple solution. Universal vaccinations are not the right answer. An “all of the above” policy is much closer to what will get us back to normal. This means more freedom to choose the right path for each individual and family, less restrictions on what treatments doctors can give to their patients, and an open acceptance that natural immunity is a reasonable alternative to the requirement of universal vaccinations.
 

2. New Evidence of Fraud in Arizona

Just released this week are the results from an extensive study of the voters in Arizona’s Maricopa County. This is not the audit being conducted by the State Senate, but it is looking at the same group of voters. I do think we need to examine this information carefully before drawing full conclusions, but don;t forget, Biden ended up with an official lead of about 10,000 votes.

The report can be found here.

3. 9/11/01

On this 20th anniversary of that dark day I offer the words I wrote on September 12, 2001:

The recent terrorist attacks are senseless acts of cruelty which demand a swift and decisive response. I applaud the president for his calm courage and determination to cure this great wrong with appropriate justice. Yet despite all the best efforts to defend this great land and its free people, we should never be confident in our own strength.

As I helplessly watched this catastrophe unfold on my television it reminded me how fragile life is and how vulnerable we all are in today’s uncertain world. Many similar scenarios of destruction can be imagined and we all know there are far too many people who would willingly be the agents of such despicable acts. On September 11 we saw that chilling reality. These shocking events underscore the very significant spiritual dimension to all of life, including that which concerns our country as a whole and its public policies. At this time we should reaffirm our hope and confidence in the Creator of all, because it is only through God’s protective grace that life is even possible.

Let us pray as a country. Pray for those directly impacted by this tragedy. Pray for peace in our land. Trusting alone in our human systems and security measures will always prove to be a false hope. We must be diligently doing what we can, from our human perspective, but also we must intentionally seek God’s forgiveness for past failures and His mercy and protection for the future. Only then can we build that strong foundation of which president Bush spoke. Only then can we as a nation truly be prosperous for our children and grandchildren in this challenging world of the twenty first century.

1. Roe on the Ropes

2. Afghanistan Again

3. Mesa County Mess

4. Breakfast Club Zoom call on Monday. Special Update for September 6

—————————————————–

1. Roe on the Ropes

The Supreme Court took a significant step in the right direction this week by refusing to grant an injunction against the Texas heartbeat law, which took effect on Wednesday, September 1st. Even though this is not a ruling on the constitutional merits of the law, it is the biggest indication that a majority of the court will defend the unborn, and Roe may not stand much longer.

This also ramps up the pro-death advocates who want to blow up the judiciary by packing the court. 

I applaud the court’s action and look forward to an end of Federal control of the abortion debate. Since the U.S. Constitution is silent on this specific issue, it is a matter for individual states to decide. In the case of Texas, this is also protecting tens of thousands of babies every year, as a large part of all abortions in the U.S. have been occurring in Texas.

The only disappointment was John Roberts, who joined the pro-death liberals in voting for the injunction.

 

2. Afghanistan Again

The President of the United States has lied so often about how he has bungled the pull-out from Afghanistan that I don’t know where to begin. Suffice it to say that in one week he has proven his inability to govern. His credibility is shot, hundreds, if not thousands of American citizens and many more Afghans who assisted the U.S. troops are now in jeopardy of torture and death from the Taliban, NATO allies no longer trust U.S. commitments and the world has become a much more dangerous place.

The only silver lining is the American public should be able to see much more clearly how the current administration and his party should not be trusted with the keys to power in this country.

3. Mesa County Mess

Mesa County continues to be a focal point for the election integrity issue. This week the big story is the ridiculous charges that were formally made against the Mesa deputy clerk, Belinda Knisley. She was charged with felony burglary and cyber crime. Sounds serious, however, here is the rest of the story.

Knisley tried to print an email on the printer in her office area. She had been put on administrative leave because some employees had lodged a complaint against her (probably part of the disruption all of this controversy has created). What she is really guilty of is not knowing that the administrative leave meant she could not be in the office. Hence she was trespassing by being in her office and because she was using the clerk’s laptop computer and credentials (despite the fact that it was with the clerk’s permission), she is charged with committing “cybercrime,” which is a very open ended law meant to catch crooks who use computers to steal identities, credit card numbers, etc..

If anyone has broken the law, deserving legal action and possible imprisonment, it is the Secretary of State and Dominion because Dominion, at the order of Griswold, raided the Mesa Clerk’s office when the clerk was out of state, took over the office, removed all of the Mesa clerk personnel from the room holding the election server (including deputy clerk Knisley), covered the windows on the door, and proceeded to completely wipe out all of the data on the election server’s drive, creating new partitions (which requires destroying all data on a drive) and replaced it with their “upgrade.” Among the changes made was the elimination of the logs of communication by the server with other computers during the 2020 election. Understand, these are essential records of the election process for the 2020 election. Such records are required by Federal law to be preserved for 22 months after any Federal election.

The most significant reason this destruction of election records is so important is the insistence by Dominion and the Secretary of State that the election equipment is not connected to the internet and the machines do not, therefore, communicate with other computers. It is vital that the original records be kept intact to verify the accuracy of their claims.

The Colorado Secretary of State has been insisting that all Dominion election machines in the state get this “upgrade.” However, the Mesa County Clerk has been doing her due diligence. Several months ago she made a mirror image of the server’s hard drive, thus preserving the original records. Cyber experts have been comparing that image to the changes that Griswold ordered be done to the server. A preliminary report on their findings is where we learned of the destruction of the communication logs from the 2020 election.

I fully expect Griswold to be charging the Mesa clerk with something related to the clerk’s effort to preserve the 2020 election records, as this could be positive proof that Dominion and Griswold have been deceiving Colorado citizens by manipulating the election counting systems. What Griswold should do, if she and Dominion are innocent of any wrong doing, is stop trying to hide everything they do and open up the records for all to see. 

For confidence in our election systems Colorado needs a full, independent, forensic audit of the 2020 election, the voter registration records, and all of the software and hardware used to count and compile our votes. Anything less looks and smells like election fraud.

The law, including the penalty for breaking that law, can be found here and here.
