Energy Policies and the Upcoming Elections
  • Douglas County Commissioner running for re-election, Lora Thomas, notes that it is very important to look at the severity of COVID-19 cases, not just that there are more cases, especially since more testing is done.  We also must acknowledge depression and other effects from the restrictions.  Lora emphasizes her support for law enforcement and her advocacy that brought millions in funding for School Resource Officers in Douglas County schools.
  • A listener espouses the premise that 9News is not just reporting the news, they are inciting violence and creating news.  She describes inconsistencies in the reporting of the death of Lee Keltner by Matthew Dolloff who was hired by 9News for security protection.  She notes that 9News and The Denver Post very possibly was in collaboration with the agitators after extensively reviewing video of the shooting.
  • Jason McBride with Presidential Wealth reviews his analysis of the Trump tax cuts.  Jason’s comparison before and after the tax cuts can be viewed at  The numbers prove that the tax cuts were financially helpful to everyday, hard working people.
