May Governor Forum


Published on April 15, 2014 by 

There has been much speculation swirling about whether liberal Sen. Mark Udall will support the building of the Keystone pipeline, which would provide energy security by bringing 800,000 barrels of oil to the United States each day as well as thousands of jobs.  Wonder no more.  Udall’s legislative aide, Carly Robinson, has put the kibosh on any hope of Udall supporting the Keystone Pipeline, according to a member of Vets4Energy, Tom McAdam, who visited with Robinson in early April.  Sen. Udall was not available to meet with McAdam.  Here’s his notes from the meeting, exclusively obtained by thePeak:

“Senator Mark Udall. Met with the Senator’s Energy LA Carly Robinson. Meeting was not very productive as Ms. Robinson stated that the Senator was an environmentalist and his views were incongruent with support of the Keystone XL. Ms. Robinson said that she was aware of the Heitkamp letter but would most likely not inform the Senator.”

While Udall’s meetings with uber-environmentalist Tom Steyer have indicated that he is not inclined to support Keystone – afterall, he needs the cash from Steyer for his uphill re-election campaign – he has never truly been candid with Coloradans in this fashion. But, what’s truly interesting is that Robinson would not pass on information to a Senator from one of his constituents.

Former chairman of the Colorado Democratic Party, Floyd Ciruli,summed up the broad support for the Keystone pipeline in The Denver Post last month:

Even before its recent environmental clearance, the pipeline has enjoyed national support during the last five years that it has been under debate. Pew Research and other credible national polls show broad support at or above 60 percent, including a majority of Democrats, based on a lack of evidence of a greenhouse gas effect, the desire for energy independence, and the project’s potential to boost the economy. Most recently, former Interior Secretary Ken Salazar endorsed it, along with a host of Senate Democrats vulnerable in re-election.

But, not Sen. Udall.  He’s siding with Steyer over Colorado.  It was suspected before, but determined by Udall’s LA and her unwillingness to even listen to his constituent.

1781026_10203472937522147_7043362874579249493_oJimmy Sengenberger is looking forward to be the featured speaker at The Reagan Club of Colorado for the month of May on Thursday, May 1st! The title of my presentation will be “Messaging Conservatism to Take America Back,” and at its cornerstone will be a four-step messaging system. Hope to see you there! Presentation details:

While conservatives may intuitively know and understand what “limited government,” “free markets,” and “personal responsibility” mean, the average American can’t picture it. The strength of the Left lies in the simplicity of their case: we believe in freedom and a strong middle class, but if someone needs help, we’ve got a duty to help them. If the rich can pay more to help people in need, why shouldn’t they? Do you really want grandma to be pushed off a cliff because conservatives cut Medicare? We have spent a century fighting to provide a government safety net for the poor and the middle class and conservatives want to tear it down, so we should oppose their efforts because they will do harm to protect their rich buddies.

Conservatives today have a natural tendency to think logically and deliberately through the issues. We first examine our core principles, then we look at the facts, and finally we evaluate a response to those facts in the context of our understanding of human nature and the basic tenets of a free society. It’s hard for us to think emotionally and to connect personally to the average American in terms they can relate to – terms that will connect to them, but will also help reach understanding as to why our limited government approach is the best way to improve their lives.

This is by no means intended to suggest that conservatives abandon our logical, thoughtful approach to the issues. On the contrary, we must remain steadfast in pursuit of our principles and our rational approach to the issues. But in our presentation of these principles and policies – in the way in which we market and message conservatism – we must fundamentally change our approach. The next gathering of the Reagan Club will be all about messaging conservatism to take America back.

Anil Mathai
Acting Chairman

Hello all ADCO state assembly delegates,

Please be advised that this weekend will be a little more than chaotic at the University of Colorado. Our Assembly will be held at the Coors Events Center, as you all know, but this Saturday is also the CU Football Spring Black and Gold game.

This normally would not be a problem but our assembly starts at 9:00am and the Spring Game starts at 10:00am. See the problem? Parking. You will want to plan ahead and possibly take the regional RTD buses to Boulder. The buses will drop you off right in front of the Admin Annex Building and then you just need to walk down Regent Street to the Coors Events Center of plan on arriving much, much earlier than you planned, by auto. My suggestion would be to be in Boulder between 0700 and 0730.

Also, be advised that US-36 will be closed over night on Friday to Saturday morning for road work and possible bridge placement and NOT anticipated to be opened until 0730. Since check in begins at 0730 and the Assembly starts at 0900, please plan on going to Boulder earlier than you had planned and expect traffic.

Additional routes would be Wadsworth north to South Boulder Road or to Baseline (Hwy 52) and then head west on either road. Another option would be taking US 93 up to Boulder.

I have provided a map. You will notice red dots and those are the various parking garages or lots that you could possibly park and then walk to the Events Center. The main garage is just to the north of the Events Center. If you choose to take the regional bus, you should be dropped off as stated above. That is represented by a light blue dot on the map. The bus stop will be just pass Regent Drive on Broadway. The large red square shows where the Coors events Center is located.
I hope this helps everyone. See you on Saturday.

In reference to the article:
Just like this father took action to solve a room-cleaning problem, seventh-grader Andy Smith took action when his mother declared his room too messy, by reaching out to President Reagan for aid. Once again Reagan demonstrates his wit and wisdom in his response.10001244_654654074588917_1217139468_o
