Every day Complete Colorado brings original reporting to Coloradans from a right-of-center perspective that has long been missing in Colorado media.
Sherrie Peif, has been on the road to that style of journalism for Complete for nearly five years now. Her hunger for continuing education is what allows her to bring you the latest in what’s happening around the state in the world of politics and education. Conferences allow reporters to the get the latest and most valuable information available.
That is exactly why Sherrie wants to attend the The Defending Freedom Action Summit (DFAS), to hear what the experts are saying about preserving your rights and report back to you in her role as a reporter for Complete Colorado, giving you the tools you need to lead Colorado to liberty, freedom, and a constitutionally sound state.
But she needs your help to get there. Please consider a donation in any amount to help send her on her way and get the information back to you.
Here is the scoop on what this conference has to offer:
The election of 2018 has sent Colorado in a different direction. Democrats now control the both chambers of the General Assembly, the Governor’s mansion, Secretary of State, Attorney General’s office and the State Treasurer’s office.
In the first 75 days of the 2019 legislative session, legislators have passed or introduced bills that will infringe on the following freedoms:
- Coloradan’s no longer have a say in the Presidential election; our votes will go to the winner of a non existent National Popular Vote.
- The 2nd, 4th, 5th, 8th and 14th Amendments are all being ignored with the passage of the country’s most liberal “Red Flag” law, allowing guns to be taken away from people who are deemed a “high risk” by nearly anyone who wants to report them. The person who is reported gets no initial chance to defend himself, confront his accuser or even know the order is happening, resulting in an ex-parte hearing. Eventually the accused (up to as long a a year later) can fight for his or her guns back but will need a higher level of proof they are mentally sound than what was needed to take them away. In addition, there is nothing in the bill that will address the mental health aspect.
- After voters overwhelmingly said no to oil and gas regulations in the 2018 election, Democrats in the Legislature are coming after it anyway. Colorado — which is home to the second largest producer of oil in the US in Weld County — is likely to be pushed into a recession as new regulations on oil and gas production will place a defacto ban on the industry. It is likely to throw Colorado into bankruptcy.
- The Taxpayer Bill of Rights, which has afforded Colorado one of the best economies nationwide by limiting the states budget to growth plus inflation, is being assaulted and Democrats want to take away the voters consent to spend or tax.
- The death penalty is under consideration to abolish. The Governor has said he will commute the sentences of all already on death row if it passes.
- New “fees” are being considered to force employers to pay for family medical leave. This “fee” is a payroll tax that is being implemented outside the restrictions of TABOR. An employers payroll tax is expected to grow by 30 percent. This will cripple small businesses.
- New “fees” are being considered on gas. This “fee” is a tax that is being implemented outside the restrictions of TABOR.
- New spending for All Day Kindergarten.
These are only the surface of what’s taking place at the capitol this year. They are being passed quickly and without stakeholder input or debate. So what does the future hold? Complete Colorado reporter Sherrie Peif wants to dig deeper into that question.
DFAS will address a wide variety of topics on the very issues facing Colorado today.
The current lineup of topics includes:
- Gun rights on campus
- The future of gun rights and the 2nd Amendment
- Defending liberty on college campuses
- The 2nd Amendment and women’s rights
- The Trump movement
- Advancing liberty
- Criminal Justice reform
- How to get more conservative voice in journalism
- Exposing liberal bias on campus
- Free speech on campus
And much more.
