    This Saturday at the NSRF we will hear from Colorado State Senator Beth Martinez Humenik, and Adams County Commissioner candidate Joyce Thomas.  Both are on the ballot this November.

    Beth won SD-24 four years ago giving Republicans control in the Colorado State Senate.  If she isn’t re-elected, the Senate could shift to Democrat control and that means more government spending, higher taxes, more regulations, and laws as Democrats try to control your life.

    Of the five AdCo Commissioners, four are Democrat and Joyce wants to add another Republican voice to the county’s governing body.

    Both (and all Republican) candidates need your support, time, and money to stop the blue team.

    We’ll also receive an update on the oil and gas presentation from a prior meeting.

    The NSRF meets on the second Saturday of every month from 9:00 am-11:00 am at Amazing Grace Church, 541 E. 99th Place in Thornton. Use the north door to enter. Admission is $5 per person. Coffee, orange juice, bottled water, fruit, & pastries are included with your admission.

    Primary elections—in which registered voters select a candidate whom they believe should be a political party’s candidate for elected office to run in the general election—do more than simply select nominees. They often reflect a party’s self-definition and sense of unity.

    With the GOP’s control of Congress and state governments at stake in the November elections, the party’s legislative record during Donald Trump’s presidency is figuring into most consequential Republican primaries. Read more …

  • Conservative activist and talk radio host Karen Kataline is calling on fellow Republicans to change their voter registration and become unaffiliated, so they can vote for “the weakest Democrats in the primary.”

    “It’s easy to change party affiliation online,” states the North Suburban Republican Forum’s website, laying out Kataline’s case prior to her recent appearance as a speaker there. “This year, the deadline is May 29. It’s just as easy to change it back [to Republican] for the general election.”

    Over the past month, Kataline says she’s spoken to Republican audiences across the front range about this idea, broadly called Strategic Voting or Insincere Voting, including at the Arapahoe County Tea Party (a debate), Colorado Jewish Republicans, Denver Republican Breakfast, the Larimer County GOP breakfast, and the Jefferson County GOP Breakfast Club. She’s making her case on talk radio and online forums as well.

    “There is no way to know if it’s working until we see the primary,” she said when asked if Republicans are accepting her idea, adding that she personally knows some Republicans who are going to do it. Others, she said, have told her they’d love to register as unaffiliated and vote Democratic, but they want to cast a ballot in the GOP primary. Some hate the idea. Read more …

  • Karen is currently advocating for “strategic voting” in the upcoming primary. Also known as “Prop 108 Revolt” or the “Kataline Conspiracy,” here’s the idea:  

    Those who wish to, can help all Republicans in the general  election by voting for the weakest Democrat candidate in the primary.

    Karen has strong opinions about who those candidates might be and will lead a discussion with NSRF members about it.  There will be lots of time for Q&A during the meeting.

     This is a superb year for Republicans to play from the deck Democrats keep stacking. They also ought to be shown the consequences when their tactics are played on them.

    With the passing of Prop. 108, it’s easy to change party affiliation online. This year, the deadline is May 29.  It’s just as easy to change it back for the general election.

     Learn about “The Kataline Conspiracy” at the NSRF’s May 12th meeting from 9:00am-11:00am.  We meet at Amazing Grace Community Church’s meeting room, 541 E 99th Place in Thornton.  Admission is $5 and  includes a continental breakfast.
