There are three bills (HB-1053, HB-1086 and HB-1088) in the Colorado House of Representative scheduled for their first (and possibly last) committee hearing on Monday, March 8 in the House State Affairs Committee.  The hearing is scheduled to start at 1:30 PM.

If you think your vote should be accurately counted and not cancelled out by any illegal or otherwise erroneous ballots, this is your chance to make your voice heard in the Colorado legislature.

HB-1053, introduced by Rep Williams, will allow any citizen to request a hand recount of the actual ballots. The citizen requesting the hand recount must pay all associated costs, but this bill finally puts into law a procedure for hand counting an election recount.

HB-1086, Introduced by Rep. Luck, provides that only an elector who has provided proof of citizenship can vote in an election.

HB-1088, introduced by Rep. Pico, would require the state auditor to audit 20% of all voter registrations every year, which would mean essentially all voter registrations would be audited once every five years. The audit would require that all voter registrations be checked against other public records to verify the accuracy of each registration.

Each of these election reform bills are modest in scope, but taken together they could significantly improve the accuracy of our elections and would go a long way in giving Colorado citizens more confidence in the integrity of our elections.

Public hearings are our best opportunity to let the legislature know what we think. It is time to let your state representative, state senator and every member of the House State Affairs Committee know that We the People expect them to take positive action on all three bills.

I trust we will.

Impeachment Trial Charade

The unconstitutional impeachment trial is nothing more than ugly political theater. President Trump is not guilty of the charges leveled in the House’s article of impeachment, 45 senators have already gone on record saying the trial is unconstitutional, the Supreme Court Chief Justice refused to preside over the event and most due process procedures (like witnesses, cross examinations and initial in

The unconstitutional impeachment trial is nothing more than ugly political theater. President Trump is not guilty of the charges leveled in the House’s article of impeachment, 45 senators have already gone on record saying the trial is unconstitutional, the Supreme Court Chief Justice refused to preside over the event and most due process procedures (like witnesses, cross examinations and initial investigations) have been eliminated. 

This “trial” is being conducted before the court of public opinion and any sensible analysis sees it for what it is, savage political theater meant to destroy and divide. I trust the American public never forgets this charade that Pelosi and Schumer have crammed down our throats.

The New Administration is Hard Left

Last week I resisted much reporting on the new administration in Washington. There was too much elsewhere to cover and normally it takes a few weeks to see the real direction of a new president. However, there is nothing normal about this administration.

Last week I resisted much reporting on the new administration in Washington. There was too much elsewhere to cover and normally it takes a few weeks to see the real direction of a new president. However, there is nothing normal about this administration.

With a record number of major executive orders already signed and in place there is no doubt the plan is to move as fast as possible down a hard left road. He has already opened up our national borders, promised citizenship to millions and already we are seeing pictures of thousands of people marching north to take him up on this radical policy.

To pay off the advocates of abortion (read Planned Parenthood) he is dropping all federal funding limitations on “family planning” services that include abortion (read Planned Parenthood). Choking off our nation’s energy independence, which we attained under the Trump administration, has become a high priority with Biden’s moratorium on oil and gas leases on federal property. He also cancelled the Keystone Pipeline project, taking a big jab at Canada and tens of thousands of jobs here at home.

Washington D.C. now looks like a capitol under martial law, with soldiers everywhere, guarding against the left’s fanatical fear of… what? I think it helps support their false narrative that Trump has been calling for a revolt. But nothing could be further from the truth. The only overthrow I am seeing is Biden’s overthrow of sound public policies and common decency. Even a mention of gender based personal pronouns in Congress and the White House publications has become forbidden

In September I helped publish the Book UNMASKED2020, Colorado’s Radical Left Turn and a Warning to America. This is the tragic story of what happened in Colorado when the radical left controlled the House, the Senate and the governor’s office. The book was written to warn America. Now we are seeing what that really means when the radical left takes over the U.S. House of Representative, the U. S. Senate and the Presidency.

It has been less than two weeks, but the pattern is clear. Liberty loving Americans are in for a rough ride for the next four years.

Legislative Update – or Not!
Not much to report from the legislature, as three days into the 2021 session they took a month off. They left, but not before they twisted the legislative rules into something I find deeply troubling. Now, during a declared medical emergency, which the governor seems willing to keep in perpetuity, legislators can legislate from home, including all voting authority.

Read More Not much to report from the legislature, as three days into the 2021 session they took a month off. They left, but not before they twisted the legislative rules into something I find deeply troubling. Now, during a declared medical emergency, which the governor seems willing to keep in perpetuity, legislators can legislate from home, including all voting authority.

I have two significant problems with this arrangement. First, the legislature must meet as a body to be able to properly debate, discuss, amend, be observed by the public, conduct public hearings, and have access to all the other means of interaction that occurs during the intentionally slow and methodical process of legislation. To put it all online eliminates too much of the deliberation that is an essential part of proper legislation. When I reviewed the Colorado Constitution, the statutes, and House and Senate rules I saw that the legislature probably can twist the rules around to allow remote legislating, but only because previous legislators could not envision the legislature doing anything but meeting in person as a legislature. I am certain our state’s founders would be appalled to see what has been done to the Colorado Legislature.

Secondly, if grocers, doctors, policemen, and fire fighters are “essential,” legislators can and should be as well. There is no valid excuse for the people’s representatives to abandon their responsibility to represent the people to the best of their ability during this protracted “emergency.” I get it if the legislature took off a few weeks in a once in a lifetime emergency, but we are approaching the second year and have already begun the second general session in this “emergency” and it is starting to look like this is the legislature’s new normal.

The 73rd General Assembly needs to go back and read the opening paragraphs of Article V of the Colorado Constitution, which establishes the Colorado legislature. It is my opinion that they are not fulfilling the oath they took just ten days ago to defend and obey that constitution. Instead they are creating a power vacuum which the governor and his bureaucrats are only too happy to fill.

Mass Hysteria

Our nation has been gripped by a mass hysteria reaction to the recent events in our nation's capitol. Fueled by a media that is more interested in advocating for their political agenda rather than serious journalism, the American public have been sold a story that never happened.

Our nation has been gripped by a mass hysteria reaction to the recent events in our nation’s capitol. Fueled by a media that is more interested in advocating for their political agenda rather than serious journalism, the American public have been sold a story that never happened.

And then, when the U.S. House of Representatives voted to impeach President Trump they made a mockery of their august assembly. First, to accuse President Trump of insurrection for what he did on January 6 is absurd. What the House did was pure and ugly political retribution. Retribution to the one man in Washington D.C. who had the strength and courage to stand up to the system that has become so corrupt that they can ignore the actual facts and proceed with this charade with a straight face.

A careful analysis of all President Trump said and did last week could not possibly be interpreted as advocating for any violence, or any other unlawful actions. I do not condone any unlawful acts that anyone did that day, but if entering the U.S. Capitol building, and then leaving a few hours later is insurrection, what of the sieges that BLM and Antifa conducted for weeks at the Colorado Capitol, downtown Seattle, Portland, and so many other places across the country? Why were those sustained attacks by violent and destructive mobs not immediately and universally condemned as insurrection? 

It is transparent to anyone who cares to look at all the facts that the actions of the U.S. House of Representatives, under the leadership of Nancy Pelosi, are at its best, childish retribution and those actions have done more damage to our institutions of government and the Constitution than anything our President did or said on January 6.

Those of us who still care to first look at the facts of the situation should never forget that dark day in the history of the U. S. House of Representatives when they voted to impeach the President, again on false charges – January 13, 2021.

A Republic, If You Can Keep It.
Much has been said from a dozen different perspectives on the dramatic developments we are seeing unfold in Washington. Rather than review most of this I will simply point out what I think is of paramount importance and admit that I don’t yet know all of the facts of all that has transpired in this first full week in January.

Read More Much has been said from a dozen different perspectives on the dramatic developments we are seeing unfold in Washington. Rather than review most of this I will simply point out what I think is of paramount importance and admit that I don’t yet know all of the facts of all that has transpired in this first full week in January.

I do advise all of us to be very careful in analyzing what we hear and not jump to any conclusions without carefully sifting out the true facts  from the fiction.

My concern is still focused on the massive election fraud that has been uncovered by literally hundreds of eyewitnesses. Anyone who categorically says there is no evidence that the election fraud actually stole the election, be they a local blogger or the Republican Leader in the U.S. Senate, is either ignorant of the facts or not willing to speak the truth.

This evidence of fraud needs to be meticulously examined, something no court of law has attempted and Congress has refused to honestly face. If there is nothing to be found, we should expect Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer to be the most anxious to get this done. They are, instead, the first in line to deny any reason to look into this significant problem.

But, hey, government isn’t perfect, why should we expect elections to have a high degree of certainty? Why? Because this is a constitutional republic. The essential point of a republic is the people select their leaders. If the people’s vote can in any meaningful way be corrupted we are no longer a republic. It has become a dictatorship, or oligarchy, or some other form of centralized tyranny. A republic, which the Constitution guarantees for every state in the Union, cannot exist if the election system is rigged.

The most unconstitutional and un-American actions I have seen in these past few days are those that frustrate, or deny, or in any way try to ignore the ugly truth that there is a high probability that the presidential election was stolen from it’s rightful owners, the people of the United States of America.

Most everything else we are seeing is political theater, including the feigned, righteous indignation over the breach of the Capitol building. It was wrong for anyone to break into the building and disrupt the national legislature. But where were these “leaders” when Colorado’s capitol building was repeatedly vandalized during the legislative session, for weeks on end? Their claims of outrage for a disruption of a few hours in the nation’s capitol rings hollow in my ears.

Job one is still clean up the elections or our constitutional republic ceases to be a republic at all.

The 2020 Presidential election was a disaster that must be fixed before it destroys the Republic. The courts have refused to look at the facts, but state legislative hearings have looked far enough to uncover the vast corruption that flipped the results of the vote and tens of millions of American citizens know it.

When I first heard that the U. S. Supreme Court’s timeline for proceeding with President Trump’s suit against the state of Pennsylvania stretches way beyond Inauguration Day, words like cowardly, unbelievable, inexcusable, incompetent, impotent, irresponsible, reckless and inconceivable came to mind. The Court is obviously dodging this critical issue, which should not, and ultimately cannot be ignored. As the Supreme Court of the land, they must take on the hard cases that demand resolution. Instead this court is trying to run and hide.

If there is any silver lining to this awful scenario, I wonder if the Court isn’t inadvertently realigning their position among the branches of government to a lesser role than the other branches and levels of government. I doubt if they are expecting this outcome, but if they are incapable of settling a legitimate complaint between individual states, as when they refused to hear the State of Texas complaint, or consider in a timely manner the suit presented by the sitting President of the United States, they have utterly failed to do their job.

It has been our legal tradition to rely on the courts to settle all disputes. The Constitution does not specifically authorize this ultimate authority, but that has been our practice. A more careful reading of the U. S. Constitution shows a division of that authority, with the people holding the ultimate authority, which is most directly transferred to civil government through their elected representatives in the U. S. Congress and their respective state legislatures (see Articles I, III and the Tenth Amendment).

When I was in the Colorado legislature it always troubled me that we never seriously questioned judicial decrees. We didn’t treat them as an equal branch, we treated them as kings and queens. Their word was law. Maybe now we can see them more clearly.

We are a constitutional republic. We are not ruled by kings and queens, even if they are in black robes. Now that the highest court has abandoned any semblance of justice for these really big questions, it is time for Congress to show some backbone and put off declaring a winner in the Presidential race until the significant questions of that election’s validity are firmly answered.

It is also time for state legislatures to shoulder their very real responsibility to govern. In this case it is to exercise their Constitutional duty to deliver valid electoral votes to Congress and stop playing the game of the Deep State with their current charade, operating under the color of non-constitutional statutory deadlines. They also must throw off the shackles of any governor who somehow holds them back from meeting as the elected legislature of their state.

This republic is at a critical point in history. As President Reagan reminded us, just about one generation ago: “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.”

Will freedom be lost on our watch?

Has the Presidential Election Been Stolen?

For the past several weeks I have given an overview of the growing evidence of significant election problems, particularly in the six states that Trump held leads in on election night, but then they all flipped.

For the past several weeks I have given an overview of the growing evidence of significant election problems, particularly in the six states that Trump held leads in on election night, but then they all flipped. Of course, here on Facebook most of my posts have been shadow banned by their censors.

On December 21, 2020, the Colorado Legislative Audit Committee held an extraordinary eight hour hearing examining election integrity in Colorado. The news reports declared the hearing found no evidence of voter fraud in Colorado. However, they were not listening very carefully. Some indeed claimed there was nothing wrong and we are the “gold standard” of elections. This chorus included all of the Democrat members of the committee and most county clerks and other past election officials. However, when the technical experts and election watchdogs, who dig deeper into the details spoke, many troubling facts came out.

It is a daunting task to unravel a hearing that lasted more than eight hours for this brief report, so I cannot give everything said right here. One thing was pointed out very clearly by a systems analyst who is familiar with military standards for cybersecurity. The Dominion system, which most of Colorado uses (62 counties and the Secretary of State), has never been adequately tested for security from outside manipulation. At one point he said: “If you don’t actively defend it the adversary will own it.”

He pointed out that the military does not even allow foreign computer chips in their most sensitive equipment over concerns of embedded back doors for controlling the systems, which could even include embedded radio receivers at the chip set level. Colorado has never put the Dominion system through a rigorous examination that would rule out these bizarre possibilities, let alone an ongoing defense of the integrity of the system. Dominion, as I have previously reported, has a murky past and today refuses to be fully transparent with their public voting systems. They should not be trusted, they should be tested. However, Colorado is not the real question. The question lies with the “swing” states that seemed to be flipped. Here is the report I want you to read that summarizes much of what we know today: https://bannonswarroom.com/…/The-Immaculate-Deception….

In answer to my original question, after all that I have learned in the last six weeks, if Biden is inaugurated President the election will have been stolen. Brazenly stolen right before our eyes with the courts, Congress, state legislatures and the deep state either timidly allowing or overtly promoting the biggest heist in the history of our nation.

May God have mercy on us all.

My Ballot Recommendations

For candidates my choice is rather simple: vote for the party that will be most likely to defend our freedoms. That is the Republican party. Some candidates are better than others, but either an "R" or a "D" will be elected and the "Ds" are the biggest threat we have to putting any limits on the growth and reach of government taxes, control, and busybodies. Additionally, for the U.S. Senate it is vitally import

For candidates my choice is rather simple: vote for the party that will be most likely to defend our freedoms. That is the Republican party. Some candidates are better than others, but either an “R” or a “D” will be elected and the “Ds” are the biggest threat we have to putting any limits on the growth and reach of government taxes, control, and busybodies. Additionally, for the U.S. Senate it is vitally important that Colorado re-elect Cory Gardner to insure Republican control of the U.S. Senate.


For the statewide ballot issues:

I am voting no on Amendment B.

Amendment B repeals the Gallagher Amendment. It is one issue that not all conservatives agree upon, but here is my analysis. Some point to the excessive commercial property tax rates as the reason for supporting this measure. But it does not lower their rates at all. What it does do is unlink the ratio between commercial and residential property taxes. If you listen carefully to the adds for repealing Gallagher, it sets up an expectation that residential rates will eventually take on a greater share of the property tax burden. That inevitably means a property tax increase.

The passage of Amendment B will also eliminate a residential property tax assessment reduction of about 13% for next year.

Bottom line, if you think your residential taxes are not high enough, vote for it. If you want to hold the line on paying more property taxes, vote no.


I am voting no on Amendment C.

Amendment C loosens the laws regulations bingo-raffle licenses for nonprofit organizations. The most significant part of this proposal is the nonprofits would be able to hire people outside of their organizations to manage the bingo and raffle games. Currently bingo and raffle games are allowed as an exception to the limits Colorado places on gambling in the state. Amendment C will allow an expansion of this form of gambling in Colorado.

I am voting no because I believe limits on the gambling industry are appropriate state policy and relaxing those limits inevitably expands the gambling industry. A recent example is the sports betting that is now legal in Colorado. If you think the new focus on sports betting in Colorado is a good policy for the state, vote for Amendment C, but for me it is a no vote.


I am voting yes on Amendment 76.

This amendment seems to make a minor change to the wording of who can vote in Colorado, but there is a lot more to Amendment 76. In explicitly saying only U.S. citizens 18 and older are eligible to vote in our state constitution this change will prohibit the legislature from lowering the voting age, of which there have already been serious bills introduced, like HB20-1149, which would have allowed 16 year olds to vote in all school related elections. It will also prevent opening up elections to non citizens.

San Fransisco has already started to allow illegal non-citizens to vote in school board elections (https://www.latimes.com/…/la-me-san-francisco-election-immi…). Currently the Colorado constitution could allow this policy, but with Amendment 76 only U.S. citizens 18 and older will qualify to vote in all elections.


I am voting no on Amendment 77.

Amendment 77 would allow betting limits to be determined by local elections in the gambling towns of Black Hawk, Central City and Cripple Creek. Allowing the local voters to change the betting limits is like letting the fox into the hen house (just about everyone in those towns are dependent on the casinos). It is a statewide concern to limit the betting in those towns which are allowed, by state policy, to have the only casinos in the state. The limits on those bets should be a statewide decision.


I am voting no on Proposition EE.

Prop EE raises taxes on nicotine products. It was a last ditch effort by the legislature this year to raise more money for all of their new programs and out of balance budget. It is also a huge tax increase that is irresponsible public policy.

 

I am voting no on Proposition 113.

This is the National Popular Vote, which the legislature passed and the governor signed last year. For the first time in over 80 years the people of Colorado are voting to specifically overturn a legislative bill, which the Colorado constitution clearly allows. A no vote rejects the legislature’s decision to give away Colorado’s vote for president in future elections. I am a big no on prop 113.

 

I am voting no on Proposition 114.

I covered this measure in more detail in a previous report. Briefly, the state has no good reason to reintroduce wolves into our state and it opens up the possibility of heavy Federal regulations for a new “endangered species” in our state.

 

I am voting yes on Proposition 115.

This is a big step for Colorado in the right direction. Colorado is currently one of a very few states that allow all abortions up to birth. Prop 115 will ban late term abortions except to protect the life of the mother.

 

I am voting yes on Proposition 116.

It is a small, but important state income tax reduction, from 4.63% to 4.55%. Need I say more?

 

I am voting yes on Proposition 117.

Government owned businesses, called “enterprises” have become a loophole for getting around TABOR limitations on new taxes. This will close much of that loophole.

 

I am voting no on Proposition 118.

This is the mandate for paid family leave for private businesses. Prop 118 will kill jobs in Colorado and hobble private businesses. This is a big no!
