'Rocky Mountain Heist' Documentary Shows How Colorado Turned Blue

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Okay now, the footwear dude here is going to object about the source of this article, but it was selected at random from the google listing of "colorado turning blue"--a list which includes articles even from the far-left Mother Jones and academia.

But they all say essentially the same thing; democracy is being subverted by the 1% in Colorado.

This obviously doesn't bother the footwear dude, part of the snobbish elitist lorgnette-and-pearls crowd here, because of how he's always bragging about it, but it should bother everybody else.

A new documentary produced by Citizens United and hosted by conservative blogger Michelle Malkin says that a secretive group of wealthy left-leaning activists met behind closed doors to take over the once-red state of Colorado, all the while publicly calling for "transparency" in elections.....

....."What happened here in Colorado can happen in the rest of the country," Malkin said.....

....."The hypocrisy reeks, it smokes, it burns," Malkin told Fox News' Megyn Kelly. "The Gang of Four," as the film calls the group was made up of millionaires and billionaires Tim Gill, Rutt Bridges, Jared Polis and Pat Stryker.

The takeover was first noticed by unsuspecting Republicans in local and state legislative races when hundreds of thousands of dollars from unknown donors inexplicably began showing up in their Democratic opponents' campaign chests.

In the film, one such candidate describes a "whistleblower" intern turning in documents he found after cleaning up the room used for meetings between Democrats and donors.

One of their campaigns listed on a memo was called "Educate the Idiots" campaign and used the AFL-CIO in its efforts. A subheading of the "Educate the Idiots" campaign said, "Target: minorities"

"This is how they talk about their own people," Malkin said.....

.....Anyone who doesn’t agree with the progressive agenda now being passed at the state capital are "targeted and harassed," the site said, adding that what is called "The Colorado Model" is being replicated in other states.

2. To be honest, I hadn't paid as much attention to next-door Colorado as I should've

these past several years.

I was aware it was becoming more and more blue, but attributed it only to a constant influx of welfare seekers. I had no idea there was a deliberate cold-blooded plot underway at the same time to usurp and destroy democracy on behalf of a few selfish oligarchs.

5. Really?

Let’s get the evidence to our new SOS, she will fix the issue. Why didn’t you bring this up to Wayne Williams? He maybe could have done something.

6. The new Democratic Colorado Governor Jared Polis

Is the third wealthiest member of Congress with a net worth of $123 million.
Polis co-founded American Information Systems Inc while still in college. AIS was an internet access provider and was sold in 1998. In 1996, he co-founded a free electronic greeting card website, Bluemountain.com, which was sold to Excite@Home in 1999 for $430 million in stock and $350 million in cash. In 1998, Polis founded ProFlowers, an online florist, in La Jolla, California. In December of that year, conservative economist Dr. Arthur Laffer (of "the Laffer Curve" used by Ronald Reagan in supply side economics) began advising Polis and joined ProFlowers as a Director. ProFlowers, later renamed Provide Commerce, Inc., went public on NASDAQ as PRVD In 2003. In 2005, Provide Commerce was acquired by media conglomerate Liberty Media Corporation for $477 million.--Wikipedia

What I don't understand is what is unethical or illegal about wealthy individuals donating to like-minded politicians. I thought that under the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in "Citizens United v Federal Elections Commission" it was decided that "the provisions of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act restricting unions, corporations, and profitable organizations from independent political spending and prohibiting the broadcasting of political media funded by them within 60 days of a general election or 30 days of a primary election violated the First Amendment's protections of freedom of speech and the ruling by the United States District Court for the District of Columbia was reversed."
That meant rich people, be they liberal or conservative, can legally fund politicians.
