  • Only the Truth can keep us Free

    Too often we focus on short term issues. Meanwhile we are losing the younger generation to lies and indoctrination, and if we cannot deal with that, the future would seem rather bleak. That is a long term problem. Truth, particularly historical truth, and foundational principles, provide answers.

    Join the NSRF on Saturday, September 14th from 9:00am-11:00am.  Admission is $5 per person with a continental breakfast included.  We meet at Amazing Grace Community Church, 541 E 99th Place in Thornton.

    This award winning book corrects many textbook errors and omissions while making sound contributions to historical scholarship–written after the author spent fourteen years on the governing board of a charter school and reviewing many textbooks. It contains a unique cross reference between the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and actions of the British king, royal governors, and Parliament.
    Winner of Colorado Independent Publishers Association EVVY Awards, whose judges said, “This is the first history book I have enjoyed reading,” and “A well researched book and an eye-opener on many historical points.”

    Discover what other histories won’t tell you:
    Why the Declaration of Independence stood on a rock solid moral and legal foundation; rights of Americans under the colonial charters, the agreement between England and Virginia from 1651, and the English Bill of Rights; the corruption in the British Parliament of the late 1700s; who raised an army of white men to defend a group of Amerindians from other white men; why the real cause of the Sioux War of 1876 was not gold in the Black Hills; the truth about the War with Mexico: why Texas and Mexico claimed different boundaries and which, if either, had been honored; Lincoln’s prophetic warning; principles of free market economics from Adam Smith, Say and Bastiat; why Reagan’s approach to a deep recession worked, while Hoover’s and FDR’s did not; what textbooks get wrong about the Vietnam War; the truth about Saddam Hussein and al Qaeda; why your property may be at risk; the threat to your right to self defense; and much more.

  • Boulder lawmakers have introduced Senate Bill 19-181, anti-oil and gas legislation that could have devastating impacts for over 100,000 hard-working families in our industry. The bill sponsors failed to hold a legitimate stakeholder process, never showed industry trades the bill, mislead Coloradans about how our rules haven’t been updated in 60 years, and are holding the first hearing just one business day after the bill was introduced.

    The bill will be heard in the Senate Transportation & Energy Committee at 2:00 PM on Tuesday, March 5th in Senate Committee Room 357 (third floor of Capitol).

    The time to stand up for your job is NOW. Legislators need to hear our voices and see our faces. We can make a difference, but it will take all of us. Please take action using the steps below and share with friends and colleagues!

    1. Rally to protect our jobs. We are calling all members of industry to gather at the State Capitol at 12:00 PM on Tuesday before the committee hearing. Share the flyer and Facebook event with friends and colleagues.
    2. Testify in opposition to the bill. After the rally, industry members need to go inside the Capitol to testify in opposition to the bill. Legislators must hear your personal, passionate energy story. Check out these tips for testifying in a legislative committee hearing. Need to brush up on your facts? COGA’s fact sheets can help!
    3. Contact senators on the committee. Email and call the senators listed below, starting with the Democrats on the committee. Ask them to protect your job in this industry that is critical to Colorado’s economy.

  • The 8 who would be governor: Candidates square off at CoPo/Gazette forum

    Author: Ernest Luning – May 19, 2018 – Updated: 3 hours ago

    For the first time, all four Republicans and four Democrats running for governor of Colorado squared off during a pair of debates Saturday in Colorado Springs, discussing policies ranging from transportation funding to gun violence, taxes to President Donald Trump.

    The candidate forum was presented by Colorado Politics, The Gazette and El Pomar’s Forum for Civic Advancement.

    Disagreements among members of the same party were few, and sparks only flew a couple of times during the exchanges, which took place just over two weeks before voters start receiving primary ballots in the mail — although the differences between the two parties were stark.

    The two 90-minute debates bookended the inaugural Colorado Civic Barbecue, a chance for several hundred members of the community to rub shoulders and listen to live bluegrass music between the doubleheader at the historic Penrose House near The Broadmoor hotel.
