This Week's Conversations

Monday

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.

Tuesday

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.

Wednesday

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.

Thursday

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.

Friday retired Air Force Major General Bentley Rayburn joins me to explain what happened that historic day.
