    There’s a vicious pandemic that no vaccine will cure, and it’s called Critical Race Theory (CRT.) This is “wokeness” and it is invading school districts and classrooms nationwide, infecting the minds of America’s progeny from preschool through college. It’s a relentless illness, spreading racial division and distrust with a deterministic dogma that defines all whites as programmed to be oppressors and all minorities as doomed victims of that white oppression. This is the story of what happened when this pandemic suddenly struck the Douglas County, Colorado, School District, which serves 63,000 students. Only 1 percent of those students are black,...

    MAGA candidates swept local county races in Georgia last weekend, forcing Republicans in Name Only to resign their seats. “The tremendous success that we had Saturday is unbelievable,” radio host John Fredericks told War Room, Monday. Fredericks said massive amounts of Deplorables got off the sidelines to censure RINO Gov. Brian Kemp, Lieutenant Governor Geoff Duncan, and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. In addition, pro-Trump candidates won local chairmanships in Cobb County, Fulton County, and across the state. “In Fulton county former congressman Tom Price and his wife Betty price, Karen Handel and her husband they both get beat,” Fredericks...

In a statement, a spokesperson for Teal’s campaign said the endorsement “does not carry much water in Douglas County.” “Previously, Sheriff Spurlock endorsed Clint Dorris, who was...

    A group of Oregon residents is petitioning to have two counties in their state join Idaho, citing Oregon’s Democratic leadership. Move Oregon’s Border for a Greater Idaho said Josephine and Douglas counties have accepted ballot initiatives supporting a goal of joining Idaho, the organization said in a press release earlier this month. The Josephine County ballot initiative specifically “makes it county policy to cooperate with any state effort to move the Oregon/Idaho border, if any such effort develops,” the group said. The Douglas County Initiative amends a current ordinance to “add Idaho officials to the list of officials who may...

    In Douglas County, Colorado, the front line of the fight for school choice and vouchers on the SCOTUS level, Republican voters outnumber Democrats about two to one. Yet until recently, Republican taxpayers .. paying about $1.25 million a year to fund Democrats’ political campaigns. How so? Most of the district’s 4,300 plus teachers belonged to the local American Federation of Teachers (AFT) union, to which they paid about $1.25 million in dues annually, according to the union’s IRS filings. Since teachers’ salaries are paid by the county’s property tax payers, their dues come out of those salaries. So the $1.25...

    A prominent gun control advocate is calling for the resignation of the Oregon sheriff leading the investigation into the recent shooting who he labeled a pro-gun “conspiracy theorist.” Douglas County sheriff John Hanlin ruffled feathers with gun control groups after it came to light that he sent Vice President Joe Biden a letter in January 2013 threatening not to enforce stronger gun laws. According to reports, Hanlin also posted a conspiracy video on his Facebook page suggesting the government was behind the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting as well as the 9/11 terrorist attacks in a coordinated effort to “disarm...

    In six weeks there will be a little-followed election that could help determine the path for education reform in the United States for a long time to come. At issue is whether a local school board has the authority to tell the government employee union—you know, the forces of darkness that are preventing commonsense education reform in our schools? -- to take a hike. In July 2012, that’s exactly what Douglas County, Colorado school board decided. After months of negotiations the school board reached an impasse with the union as their contract expired. Previously the union has demanded that the...

So, to excercise our constitutional rights to the courts or to appear as mandated by the court we must submit to a strip search and radiation. According to the TSA web site, these machines are also in other courthouses throughout the country. Just thought you should know.

    Douglas County, Colorado has three streams running from South to North. The Cherry Creek, East Plum Creek and West Plum Creek all eventually flow into the Platte River and the water then makes its way down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico. Many of Colorado’s first settlers made their homesteads on these three rivers. The West Plum Creek ends at Sedalia, Colorado, founded in 1865. This land along the West Plum Creek is Horse Country as it has been for over 140 years. On Saturday September 19th, the Douglas County Republicans held their annual picnic. They chose the Wiens...
