• Join us for a lively discussion about today’s local political news at the next NSRF monthly meeting on Saturday, July 11.

    We’ll discuss what’s going on with the Covid-19 lockdown orders, which candidates won the primary election, what rulings did the Colorado Supreme Court make, how do those rulings affect you, what’s happening with the Colorado GOP, what ballot initiatives will be on the November ballot, which ones are good or bad for Colorado, and where can I sign, or help get signatures, to get them on the ballot, and lots more topics.

    We meet at the Amazing Grace Community Church, 541 E 99th Place in Thornton from 9:00 am – 11:00 am.  The meeting will be outside using chairs and their picnic tables so you can social distance.  Wear a mask if you want.

    Thank you to everyone who joined us on June 13th after 3 months of cancelled meetings due to the Coronavirus lockdown.  We hope to see you on Saturday, July 13th!

  • It’s been too long.

    We miss seeing your face in-person and discussing current political events.

    After 3 months following Colorado’s “Stay-or-shelter-at-home” policy due to the Coronavirus, it’s time to break free.

    On this Saturday, June 13th the North Suburban Republican Forum (NSRF) will be meeting from 9:00am-11:00am.

    We won’t be inside the Amazing Grace Community Church but outside it, using their picnic tables to social distance.

    We’ll have beverages but not food.

    Wear a mask if you want.

    Bring a friend or two but join us.

    Everyone is welcome.

    Let’s get back to what was considered normal.

    We’ll have an open forum to discuss what has happened, what’s going on now, & what’s coming.

    Please RSVP to info@NorthSuburbanRepublicanForum.com with how many people are coming.

    See you this Saturday morning!

  • Democratic leaders kill a rescue bill under pressure from the left

    By The Editorial Board
    Updated March 23, 2020 7:34 pm ET

    What a spectacle. Much of America is quarantined at home, the public is so panicked there’s a run on toilet paper, the country desperately wants reassurance, and Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer decide to take a bipartisan rescue bill as a political hostage.

    That’s the display of Democratic leadership in a crisis the nation received on Monday as Senate Democrats blocked a $1.8 trillion bill that has urgent money for workers, hospitals, small business and, yes, even larger companies threatened by the forcible shutdown of the U.S. economy. When America most needs bipartisan cooperation, Democrats add to the economic uncertainty by putting their partisan interests above the needs of the country.
    ***
    Democrats are lucky the Federal Reserve chose Monday to deploy its biggest financial guns so far, or the markets might have taken an even bigger fall amid Washington’s dysfunction. Equities still fell by 3% or so, but investors took some comfort in the Fed’s offer to buy as many mortgage securities and Treasurys as needed to calm the panic. The mortgage-securities market has been strained as sellers who need cash struggle to find willing buyers.

  • Normally when I publish content online, I focus on the world of work. I hope you’ll forgive this brief departure, but I think that those of us on the left need to take a long look in the mirror and have an honest conversation about what’s going on.

    If you had told me 3 years ago that I would ever attend a Donald Trump rally, I would have laughed while assuring you that was never going to happen. Heck, if you had told me I would do it 3 months ago, I probably would have done the same thing. So, how did I find myself among 11,000+ Trump supporters in Manchester NH? Believe it or not, it all started with knitting.

    You might not think of the knitting world as a particularly political community, but you’d be wrong. Many knitters are particularly active in social justice communities and love to discuss the revolutionary role that knitters have played in our culture.

    As a casual knitter, I never really paid attention to this. I knit as a way to relax and escape the drama of real life, not to further engage with it, but for anyone who is active in the knitting world on Instagram, it became almost impossible to avoid it. It started about a year ago when roving gangs of online social justice warriors started going after anyone who was not lockstep in their ideology. People were bullied and mobbed by hundreds of people for such offenses as publishing an article expressing excitement about going on a trip to India, posting a video saying they were leaving IG because they were uncomfortable, and posting a poem asking for kindness. Katherine Jepsen Moore has documented the full stories extensively and the BBC recently covered it as well.

    I started paying attention after one man who was attacked got mobbed so badly that he had a nervous breakdown and was admitted to the hospital on suicide watch. There was something that was not right (well, so many things really) and it witnessing the vitriol coming from those who I had aligned myself with politically was a massive wake up call.

    You see, I was one of those Democrats who considered anyone who voted for Trump a racist. I thought they were horrible (yes, even deplorable) and had worked very hard to eliminate their voices from my spaces by unfriending or blocking people who spoke about their support of him, however minor their comments. I watched a lot of MSNBC, was convinced that everything he had done was horrible, that he hated anyone that wasn’t a straight, white man, and that he had no redeeming qualities.

    But when I witnessed the amount of hate coming from the left in this small, niche knitting community, I started to question everything. I started making a proactive effort to break my echo chamber by listening to voices I thought I would disagree with. I wanted to understand their perspective, believing it would confirm that they were filled with hate for anyone that wasn’t like them.

  • They’re increasingly rigid and orthodox, even as Republicans have shown a new flexibility.

    The Democrats have turned religious. Not in the sense that they espouse a belief in an omnipotent and benevolent Creator or eternal and universal moral principles. They are religious in the sense that they hold dogmatic beliefs that are impervious to contradiction by logic, evidence or experience, and cultivate a moral superiority toward unbelievers. The party that loudly prides itself on tolerance and diversity is increasingly intolerant in at least three areas.

    First, Democrats have moved beyond traditional environmentalism, with its emphasis on regulation, technological innovation and market incentives to achieve incremental progress, toward a radical vision grounded in an unshakable belief in climate apocalypse. Both parties once cooperated to protect endangered species and clean the air, water and soil. Today’s Democrats demand bans on fracking and new oil and gas leases on federal lands, and endorse the elimination of all fossil fuels and decarbonization of the economy in unrealistic time frames. Rather than aspirational moonshots, intended to inspire the public and private sectors to work together, Democrats use these impossible goals as rationales for completely restructuring how Americans live, work, commute and even eat.

  • Dear Friends,

    This is a fascinating (and disturbing) read.  One of the best “nutshell” descriptions of the United States current political situation that I’ve seen.

    Summary of eRumor:
    Shortly before his death, Eastern Michigan University professor Jack Minizey wrote about a modern civil war bing fought without guns in a column that has gone viral.

    The Truth:
    Jack Minzey was indeed an emeritus professor at Eastern Michigan University. He also died on April 8, 2018, as the forwarded email claims. Minzey did not, however, write a commentary titled “This Civil War” that’s been attributed to him.
    Daniel Greenfield wrote a delivered the commentary during the South Carolina Tea Party Convention Speech in January 2018. The original is titled, “The Second Civil War,” and mirrors the version later attributed to Jack Minzey word-for-word.

    Shortly after his death in April 2018, the commentary was attributed to Minzey in forwarded emails. Zero Hedge, a blog site that publishes conspiracy-minded commentaries about financial markets and globalization, published one version of the email that included this dramatic intro:

    Recently Jack Minzey sent what was to be the final chapter in the long line of books at treatises which he had written. Jack passed away Sunday, 8 April 2018. Professionally, Jack was head of the Department of Education at Eastern Michigan University as well as a prolific author of numerous books, most of which were on the topic of education and the government role therein. This is the last of his works.

    The Civil War commentary goes on to describe a “modern civil war” that’s being fought without guns (for now). Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, the commentary goes, is a sign of Democrats rejecting the results of an election. “It means they don’t believe that transfers of power in this country are determined by elections. That’s a civil war.”
    It’s unclear how the Civil War commentary came to be attributed to Minzey. It could have been done so accidentally. Or, it could have been done to lend more credibility, and dramatic effect, the commentary. Either way, Minzey did not write it.

    Here’s the email:

    Dr. Jack Devere Minzey, born 6 October 1928, died 8 April 2018, was the Department Head of Education at Eastern Michigan University as well as a prolific author of numerous books, most of which were on the topic of Education and the Government role therein. (Editor’s note)This was the last of his works:

    Civil War:  How do civil wars happen?  By Dr. Jack Devere Minzey

    Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country.  And they can’t settle the question through elections because they don’t even agree that elections are how you decide who’s in charge.  That’s the basic issue here.  Who decides who runs the country? When you hate each other but accept the election results, you have a country.  When you stop accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war.

    Last year we witnessed the most progressive legislative session in Colorado history. If tradition is any predictor, this legislative session should be a much milder affair.

    Election-year sessions tend to be less controversial. Legislators don’t want to overstep and risk looking extreme going into their re-election.

    Well, that’s how it used to be, at least. Not anymore.

    In case your subconscious has blocked your memory of what happened last year, like a trauma victim forgets the details of the vicious attack, let me walk you through your PTSD.

    In the 2019 legislative session our progressive overlords gave our precious nine, soon to be 10, Electoral College votes to urban centers like Los Angeles and New York with the National Popular Vote.

    They empowered the governor of California to decide what cars and trucks can be sold in Colorado (you read that right), under Cali’s emission standards.
