    With their majority in both houses of the state legislature and the office of governor, Democrats exploited their monopoly on state government to ram through a measure that commits Colorado to a nationwide plot to subvert presidential elections. It’s called the National Popular Vote (NPV) Compact.

    It’s a devious scheme to circumvent the Electoral College which was brilliantly crafted by our founders to conform with the constitutional republic they created, as codified in Article IV, Section 4 guaranteeing to every state a “republican form of government.” And decidedly not a direct democracy. The word “democracy” appears nowhere in the Constitution or the Declaration of Independence. The notion that we have a national popular vote for president is a fiction. What we have are 51 separate elections, one in each of the states and the District of Columbia. It’s only as a matter of curiosity that we tally the votes of those 51 popular elections to produce a national total. But it has no force of law.

    The democratic principle of “one person one vote” applies more appropriately to the US House where seats are apportioned strictly by population; but not in the Senate where each state gets two votes regardless of population. Electoral votes for president are also assigned among the states to disproportionally favor states with low populations, and they’re cast winner-take-all (except in Nebraska and Maine) rather than proportionately based on a state’s popular vote. James Madison explained that, “The immediate election of the president is to be made by the states in their political characters.” That is, as individual entities not as members of any collective “compact.”

  • 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.

  • The Left’s Lucrative Nonprofits

    ‘Powerful interests’ and ‘dark money’ are mostly on the Democratic side.

    This year’s Democratic presidential candidates have a favorite whipping boy: “powerful interests.” Get ready to hear again in coming weeks how the National Rifle Association rules Washington, how the Koch empire dominates politics, how the right is pouring “dark money” into its agenda. And then remember that these are among the biggest whoppers of the 2020 election. One side will do battle with the aid of a huge and savvy nonprofit political empire—and it isn’t the right. Though the sooner Republicans understand that, the better.

    A helpful tutorial arrived this week, “Power Grab,” a new book by Republican former Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah. Mr. Chaffetz has been digging into nonprofits since his time as House Oversight Committee chairman, and the book details how powerful the liberal nonprofit sector has grown. It may surprise many Americans—those who read daily stories about conservative “influence”—that the likes of the NRA, Judicial Watch and the National Organization for Marriage barely rank by comparison to the assets and revenue of Planned Parenthood, the American Civil Liberties Union or the Nature Conservancy.

    These aren’t only big political players; they’re the biggest political players. In 2018 the nonprofit watchdog Capital Research Center analyzed grants handed out in the 2014 election year by six big foundations on the right (including the Bradley and Charles Koch foundations) versus six on the left (including the Open Society and Tides foundations). Liberal public-policy charities, organized under chapter 501(c)(3) of the tax code, bagged $7.4 billion of this foundation money in 2014. For conservative charities, the figure was a mere $2.2 billion. That $7.4 billion also dwarfed total 2013-14 campaign receipts to federal, state and local campaigns ($4.1 billion) and spending that cycle by independent groups ($830 million).

    Mr. Chaffetz’s contribution is to refocus attention on the way liberal charities channel their huge funds into political work that benefits the Democratic Party. We’ve long known that some of them engage in nominally nonpartisan voter registration, conveniently only in places likely to yield Democratic votes. The Chaffetz book adds new data highlighting contracts between liberal charities and overt political organizations.

  • What a story and background about Daniel Renshaw.  He’ll speak about Operation Red Wings, which was the basis for the movie, “Lone Survivor.”

    The August 10th NSRF meeting is at the Amazing Grace Community Church, 541 E. 99th Place in Thornton from 9:00am-11:00am.  Admission is $5 per person and includes a continental breakfast.

    Here is the biography of Daniel Renshaw:

    I became interested in finance when I was 16 years old taking accounting in high school. However, September 11th happened where I was a freshman so I had made up my mind to serve my country before pursuing college or any career inside the financial industry. I shipped off to be a Marine infantryman immediately after I graduated high school in 2004. During that time, I deployed to Afghanistan, where I took part in both the rescue mission for Operation Red Wings (the operation where Marcus Luttrell and the other Seals got ambushed, popularized in the book and film Lone Survivor.) and Operation Whalers, (the mission where we cornered and defeated the Seal team’s ambushers – Ahmad Shah and his army) where I earned a Navy and Marine Corps commendation medal with a combat distinguishing device. .

    My second deployment was to Haditha Iraq where I was shot by a sniper through the liver while on patrol. I was 20 years old at the time and lucky enough to survive the wound even after losing about four liters of blood. I was offered a medical retirement from my injury but opted instead to stay and finish my enlistment. I got an honorable discharge in 2008 and immediately started attending college. While attending college I met my wife, and in order to support her and the two children we have now, I ended up getting a job at the refinery here in Denver while I continued my education.

    After graduation,  I started my career here with Edward Jones where I continue to partner with people in order to help them achieve what it is that is most important to them. I am a registered Republican and continue to speak at city council meetings all over the front range in opposition of policies that will hurt or limit our economic growth.
