This Week's Conversations


Josh Phillip and Sue Moore

Have some Chinese students attending America’s colleges and universities actually been spying for the Chinese Communist Party? How should the United States respond to the Chinese Communist Party treatment of Hong Kong? Monday Josh Phillip, investigative reporter with The Epoch Times, will share his perspective on these questions. Plus Sue Moore with the Republican Liberty Caucus of Colorado will update us with what is happening at the Colorado State Legislature now that they have reconvened.


Kevin Lundberg and Chris Cantwell

Last week the Colorado State Legislature reconvened. Tuesday former State Senator and author of the Lundberg Report, Kevin Lundberg, joins me. He’ll explain how in three short days this legislature silenced the people’s voices, began planning to eliminate the senior and disabled veteran’s property tax exemption and voted for a pay raise for State Senators. Plus Chris Cantwell with Transworld Business Advisors updates us on the current business market.


Andrew Roise and Tim McCormack

Is Colorado “re-opened?” Wednesday Reopen Colorado creator, Andrew Roise, joins me. Andrew was talking with his wife about the shut down of Colorado’s businesses. She challenged Andrew to do something about it. He did. What began as a Facebook page on April 13, 2020, now has 25,000 followers. What are the next steps for Reopen Colorado? Plus Tim McCormack, District Attorney candidate for Adams County, will explain the importance of District Attorneys, particularly in light of the recent rioting in our communities.


Kim Ransom

Follow the money! Now that the Colorado State Legislature has reconvened they must make hard decisions regarding Colorado’s finances. Government closed down businesses for a lengthy period of time which meant that businesses were not operating nor generating state sales tax revenue. Thursday Colorado State Representative and member of the Joint Budget Committee, Kim Ransom, will help us “follow the money!” What’s on the chopping block? What’s not?


Bentley Rayburn, Lorne Levy and Karen Levine

Seventy-six years ago June 6, 1944, D-Day, the Allies embarked upon the liberation of western Europe from the tyrannical clutches of Adolph Hitler and his National Socialist German Workers party, the Nazis. The battle was fierce. The water at Omaha Beach was red with the blood of American soldiers. Against such significant odds, how did Gen. Ike Eisenhower and the Allies create a plan to succeed? Friday retired Air Force Major General Bentley Rayburn joins me to explain what happened that historic day.

Just As Important As How We Vote Is That We Vote

“Just as important as how we vote is that we vote,” Ronald Reagan famously said. In this Op-Ed, author and researcher Patti Kurgan explains that the biggest take-away from the last Presidential Debate is that you must vote and not sit on the sidelines. Patti explains that our country is depending on your vote. Similarities between the two candidates are non-existent. Stand united and preserve the American Idea of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The other choice will abolish private property and you will be controlled by elite politicians.

Episode 56: Steven Peck

Why have Democrats been so adamant in undermining and getting rid of the Electoral College?  Because the Electoral College makes it more difficult to steal an election.

Steven explains that President Obama lost 3 ½ million votes from his first election to his second election. Steven also shares some silver linings to the current 2020 election results.
