Tyrants Gone Wild in the world of COVID-19!! – Why people need to take back their power and know their inalienable rights

By on April 14, 2020

By Judy Spady, Founder of “Free Counties

We are Americans and we have sure been through some extremely difficult times throughout our history that have been a challenge to the people. We survived the uncivil war where brothers fought against brothers. We have dealt with many eras of diseases and famines, one being the “Spanish Flu” of 1918 that killed millions in a very short time frame. We were inches away from engaging in a nuclear war during the “Bay of Pigs” under JFK…but throughout these difficult times, the people understood that their inalienable rights come from God or, as the Declaration of Independence, describes it from “the Creator.”

So, why do people believe that they have to obey illegal decrees issued by tyrants like the Governors of the states who have issued “shelter-in-place” or “stay-at-home” orders? As Judge Napolitano points out in his recent article “Beware A Government of Fear,” all of these decrees “should all be rejected by an outraged populace, and challenged in court.” Why are people being so fearful as to not even question the authority of those trying to rule over their lives? People are going to lose their livelihoods because they are allowing fear tactics to rule over them and they aren’t even looking at the rule of law! Most of these state “orders” are just advisory so why shut down your business because the government is telling you they think you should?

Tyrants love high-levels of fear in the masses because that is how they bring on their control. Media outlets profit a lot from instilling fear in everyone.

The problem is that many people don’t understand what our rights are, or where they originate from. Most think that the Constitution granted us our rights, which is false. The Declaration defines where our rights come from – “The Creator.” The government’s authority comes only from “the consent of the governed” and that is us. The government has no legal authority to be involved in healthcare/education and the only way they claim to have it is by breaking the law! We all must be advocating for the rule of law where politicians are not above it, especially in times of crisis.

Federalism

Most people (even those who have studied the Constitution or went to law school) do not know what the term “Federalism” means. Here’s what it is, in a nutshell. In the days of the founding, “We the People” were the government and all governing bodies worked for us with the Federal government being at the very bottom with ONLY limited (i.e., enumerated) powers from the people.

We live in an upside-down world now because the people haven’t been taught the truth of the Republic in the government education system. There is a reason for that.

Everyone should be MAD AS HELL that they have been lied to for so long!

Where to begin to seek the truth

The Declaration of Independence is the best place to turn when understanding where our rights come from (i.e. “the Creator”) and the 1st Ten Amendments of the Constitution (i.e., the Bill of Rights) tried to limit the government from trampling on them. It would have been more appropriate for them to have been called the Bill of “Limitations” since their purpose was to LIMIT the central government in their interactions with the people.

The next thing to do is to read the Constitution and the Federalist & Antifederalist Papers which you can access near the bottom of our website. Most Constitutional studies such as the Heritage Foundation and others online completely ignore the side of the “Antifederalists” and most Americans don’t even know what the term means. You should. The Antifederalists were Patrick Henry, George Mason, and Thomas Jefferson and if it wasn’t for them, the Constitution wouldn’t have contained the Bill of Rights. They were the true freedom-fighters of the founding era. How sad that we have an entire society who doesn’t even recognize them now. If you want to truly understand your rights, it is vital to understand why the American Revolution was fought to protect them and why the Antifederalists demanded that the government be limited from infringing upon them. George Mason said that he would rather cut off his right arm then sign the Constitution because it did not contain a protection for our rights.

If you read these basic foundational documents then you will find out that our rights pre-existed any form of government and the source of them is our very humanity. Government does not grant the people their rights. The government has only one job – to protect the rights of the citizens, as stated in the Declaration of Independence. Hold your elected officials, at all levels, accountable for this!

Judge Napolitano does an amazing job in this video of explaining this.

STOP Quarantining the Constitution

Both parties are guilty of usurping the Constitution right now with the scare of COVID-19. The Democrats want to take all your rights away and have called for a removal of the 2nd Amendment with Bill H.R. 5717. The Republicans are usurping the Constitution just as much with Trump’s AG (Attorney General) recently asking Congress to grant him the power to suspend the Constitution, specifically Habeas Corpus. This means that he believes he can destroy the rights of the people and can throw individuals into prison, indefinitely, without due process of the law. That is really scary stuff, folks. Trump, himself, has also called for nationwide gun confiscation, twice now. I don’t care which party is in control of the WH, any American citizen should fear those threats.

This is an amazing article from a Constitutional Attorney that is full of tons of information about how tyranny is happening everywhere in our, once great, Republic. Please take the time to read it and click on the links to learn the truth about what’s happening. As it says, “Stay-at-home orders deprive you of your profession, occupation, business and property, without any due process of law at all beyond an executive fiat in violation of the Fifth Amendment right to due process.”

Yes, there is a lot of sickness and deaths happening from the COVID-19 but the government can’t protect us from everything…and we don’t want them to do so! This is also another short explanation of “COVID-19 vs. the Constitution” from the Patriot Coalition where I used to be a state coordinator. It states, “According to our Constitution, We the People have not consented to a restriction on our freedom to peaceably assemble, but we are allowing this infringement for some reason in our states and counties. If it is our choice to self-quarantine, that is perfectly acceptable, but allowing any government to restrict our unalienable God-given rights is but the first step to accepting authoritarian rule.”

Can Government Restrict Travel?

Government is using our cell phones to track us as part of massive surveillance and, recently, Utah’s Governor Herbert issued an “order” saying that anyone entering their state must complete a travel declaration form that will be texted to cell phones after they track them at certain checkpoints or at airports. New Mexico has followed suit on the cell tracking.

Judge Napolitano wrote this eye-opening article to describe how tyrants have no right to infringe upon your life, liberty, or property. In his article, Can the Government Restrict Travel to Protect Public Health? he states the law in this manner: “Thus, a government-ordered quarantine of all persons in a city block or a postal ZIP code or a telephone area code would be an egregious violation of due process, both substantive and procedural. Substantively, no government in America has the lawful power to curtail natural rights by decree.”

Benjamin Franklin once famously said, “Those who would give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

Global Communism

Many of the things happening now to try and steal our rights is coming down from the global levels of communist organizations such as the WHO (World Health Organization), the UN (United Nations), and the CCP (Chinese Communist Party).

The psychopaths at the WHO just said they would have to start removing people from their homes and Tucker Carlson exposed the evil of it. I spoke to a local man the other day as I was telling him how these “orders” from the Colorado Governor are illegal because they violate the Colorado and U.S. Constitutions. He said it didn’t matter because the WHO is now in charge of our laws. I was in total shock and I was at work so I had to keep my composure. I said, “Really? If that was the case it would mean that we have lost all of our nation’s sovereignty and that would be really scary.” He got annoyed and walked away saying it wasn’t scary because it is “for the common good.” Think about that! This is saying that we no longer want to be a nation and we are ready to let the globalists control all of our lives because we trust that a communist global government will take good care of us. Wow, how sad!

Some Congressional Representatives put together a resolution to defund the WHO until the Ethiopian politician and director of the WHO, General Tedros Ghebreyesus, resigns and an international commission investigates the wrongdoings of “helping Communist China cover up a global pandemic” said Rick Scott, R-Fla. Here is the Bill and a follow up story about the sponsor of the bill is found here.

Trump announced a freeze of funding to the WHO but, unfortunately, quickly rescinded it after the WHO General said that the G-20 (another global communist organization) needs to come together to fight this. Of course, he would be pushing for a global decision instead of countries protecting their own sovereignty. So, why didn’t the Trump administration back up the Congressional bill to defund the WHO and stop globalism? All Americans should be asking that question.

Population Control

The elite 1% who rule over all of us want millions of people to die in their population control schemes. Bill Gates has been saying this, in public, for years on “Ted Talks” and in his writings. He recently resigned himself from his philanthropically ran corporation so that he can dedicate himself to tracking everyone down in his plans of “ID2020” where they digitally track the public with implantable devices.

The VIRUS is a HOAX – There is NO Pandemic!

That doesn’t mean it isn’t real. Unfortunately, it is real and some are sick/dying but that happens from all forms of influenza.

Death Toll predictions were way overinflated and now the CDC is even admitting that they won’t be able to reach those predictions even though all deaths reported are labelled as having COVID-19.

Fauci even wrote in the New England Medical Journal on March 26, explaining how the “overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza.”

Fauci says nobody should ever be able to shake hands again and he wants lockdowns to last for another 18 months!…so does Ezekiel Emmanuel who is the brother of Rahm Emmanuel (remember the “never let a good crisis go to waste” communist from the Obama administration?)…these people are lying by saying our immune system cannot fight against this!! Ezekiel says we must wait as prisoners in our homes until “Vaccine Day.” They love the idea of holding everyone prisoners until they can inject their vaccines full of aborted cells into everyone.

The CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank in St. Louis, James Bullard, is saying that unemployment could go up to 42% and that they want people to “not participate in the economy.” He also goes on with an outright lie by claiming that “there is nothing wrong with the economy” and continues about how they will mandate testing before the economy starts back up but large shipments of the tests shipped to the UK were contaminated with the Virus. This is how they are going to continue spreading it and killing people so they can boost their death numbers! I won’t be doing the test!! Protect your family from this!…this is social engineering from the likes of people such as Bill Gates. In regards to testing, Dr. Rasnick, bio-chemist, protease developer, and former founder of an EM lab called Viral Forensics, was interviewed and says, “Don’t do it, I say, when people ask me,” he replies. “No healthy person should be tested. It means nothing but it can destroy your life, make you absolutely miserable.” He went on to say, “Every time somebody takes a swab, a tissue sample of their DNA, it goes into a government database. It’s to track us,” says David Rasnick. “They’re not just looking for the virus.”

If you are still convinced to stay at home under illegal orders from a tyrannical Governor because you are scared that you might spread or catch the virus then use common sense. If you are sick, by all means, stay home and get better but if you are healthy and well, why not be able to live your life in a normal fashion? In fact, in order to boost up your immune system against viruses, the best advice is to get outside and mingle with other people. One of the worst ways to deal with a respiratory airborne virus is to isolate and stay out of the sun where we gain essential Vitamin D. Dr. Wittkowski firmly stated the truth about how, “the coronavirus could be ‘exterminated’ if we permitted most people to lead normal lives and sheltered the most vulnerable parts of society until the danger had passed.” The video from that honest Doctor was also covered in this article by the New American. Dr. Wittkowski even states how the government’s stay-at-home “orders” have made the problem even worse and how the epidemic would have been over by now if the government would have stayed out of the way. By staying indoors, it actually keeps the virus more “healthy.”

If you only do one thing from this article, let it be the well-spent 40 minutes to watch this video:

The “Sustainable Development” agenda is the main culprit behind the scare

Tom DeWeese of the American Policy Center put out a warning video explaining how the far left socialist/communists are using the COVID crisis to push their “Green New Deal” in a frightening manner. A Colorado candidate for the state legislature stated, “The coronavirus has proved we can afford the Green New Deal” and as Tom says, “this is VERY frightening.” The Green New Deal is an attack on our property rights as he discusses in an earlier video and with many articles on his website.

As Patrick Wood points out in this article on his website, Technocracy News, the “panic of 2020” continues to push the previous efforts from the “Agenda 21” movement and the goals of “Agenda 2030” or the “Green New Deal.” Same key communists behind those agendas and…they never quit. Patrick, appropriately, concludes that “We are all rightfully saddened for anyone who loses their life to COVID-19, but we are going to be a lot more sorry for having trusted a Technocrat to tell us how to deal with the pandemic. The destruction of the economy will result in many more deaths and hardships than COVID-19 could ever imagine.”

Many of us have been fighting against the communist creep of Agenda 21 for decades and we have won some of the battles so they changed the name to “Agenda 2030” or to market it in a better way, the “Green New Deal.” They are all the same plans from the UN to infiltrate every community in our nation and control the people, using the guise of the environment or love of mother earth. That is a communist tactic, at the very core. “Free Counties” came into existence because of many brave Patriots fighting against this in LaPlata County, Colorado.

They are inflating the death rates!!!

Dr. Annie Bukacek who has been practicing medicine for over 30 years, explains the deceitful situation in this video where she shows EXACTLY how all hospitals in the nation are being told to write death certificates as though everyone is dying “with” (not “from”) COVID-19.

So, can you guess WHY they are inflating the Death rates? Well, because the world’s top central bankers issued “pandemic bonds” back in 2017 after the Ebola epidemic and they were really hoping to make more $$ on how many died from this. Yes, it is true as this article points out how, “The World Bank began selling the high-yielding securities a year after the most severe outbreak of Ebola virus on record ended in 2016. They’re modeled on catastrophe bonds that pay out in response to insurance claims for events like hurricanes.”

Here is the primary source with information about their “pandemic bonds” which would have cashed in more for the wealthy, if only the death rates were higher.

Tyrannical Governors

Here are just a few horrific examples of tyrannical Governors who are abusing their power and usurping the Constitutional rights of people:

Michigan – Stops people from buying seeds!!

Thank God (literally) for Justin Amash who is the ONE & ONLY Constitutionalist in all of DC who hasn’t caved. Here was his tweet about the Michigan tyrant:

Kentucky – The cops harassed a church and scattered nails all over the parking lot where cars were trying to assemble for Easter services but the people prevailed and held their service anyhow.

Virginia – Turns state from one that protects rights to a progressive state where the 2nd Amendment is no longer protected and the right to life is completely gone for the innocent. He makes abortions “essential” while shutting down churches.

NevadaCloses health food stores but liquor is still “essential.” Does that sound like they are concerned for your health?

Some Good News! – Some states didn’t shut down!

Colorado has very strict, illegal, shut down “orders”…but South Carolina is the opposite so you would think that Colorado would have less deaths if their shut-down orders were working but that is not the case. Ron Paul discusses that in this video where he talks about other states who didn’t shut down and have zero cases, like Wyoming.

In that same video (above), Dr. Paul points out how Fauci says people should never shake hands again and that they are already planning for another virus coming in the fall. They really want this stuff to continue! Next time it will come back even stronger because people have listened to government and isolated themselves which is more dangerous (as explained by the professor, above). This is pure psychological manipulation from a group of psychopaths who want to rule over others! Bill Gates tells the CDC what to do because he owns most of it. Gates is a eugenicist!! Ron Paul also calls for the people to fire Fauci (#firefauci!) for fraud! Stop listening to these lies that are horrible for your mental state and start listening to the Liberty Report on a daily basis for the truth!

Positive Constitutional Stories!!

Thank goodness there are a few Constitutional Representatives out there that people can watch as great examples. I’m not endorsing any of them from our organization because that would require a full vetting of their actions. They may still be doing other actions against the rule of law and it is up to their local constituents to hold them accountable but we will be listing some of the stories on “Free Counties” as examples in this limited capacity.

  • Way to go, Kansas!! Their legislators and Attorney General told the Governor to back off from being a tyrant!!! She tried telling people they couldn’t go to church over Easter and they stood up to her being a dictator and using illegal orders against the people of Kansas!! The state Attorney General accurately stated, “In our view, Kansas statute and the Kansas Constitution’s Bill of Rights each forbid the governor from criminalizing participation in worship gatherings by executive order.”

    This Kansas story, truly, touches my heart because it is the fruits of labor from my Constitutional mentor, Richard Fry, who was a Constitutional attorney who spent many years educating his state legislators on the Constitution and how it is their job to protect the rights of the people!!

    Unfortunately, we just learned how this State Supreme Court Judge overturned the legislative panel and sided with the corrupt Governor saying that the legislative panel did not have the authority to overturn her Executive Order. I’m pretty sure that if Richard Fry were still alive, he would say that a lawsuit should be filed in Federal Court by the people of Kansas.

  • Here is an amazing story sent to us by our local coordinator in Idaho, Wendy Cox, about all of the key players who are standing firm for the Constitutional rule of law!  – https://dnyuz.com/2020/04/07/a-liberty-rebellion-in-idaho-threatens-to-undermine-coronavirus-orders/

  • A Constitutional Sheriff in Washington state is standing up against these illegal laws of their Governor. He said, “Just because there’s a crisis going on, doesn’t mean that we should give up our liberties and it definitely means that our elected public servants should not be trying to take our liberties away from us,” and “Our Governor has placed draconian restrictions on the Citizens of Washington State that violate our Constitution,” and “These restrictions are not evenly applied but selective and allow him to pick winners and losers.”

In a crazy authoritarian society full of fiat money and fear, it can get pretty depressing but the good news is that when one analyzes history, it is clear that these fraudulent tactics of the communists, don’t last. They always fail and the evil root of the Federal Reserve will, too. As Ron Paul’s co-host, Chris Rossini, points out in this video, the usury of the Fed’s funny money with their “unbacked printing of however much money you want, has a 100% failure rate” and he continues to explain how these extortionists “believe that what they are doing is good, they believe that counterfeiting money will save them and…they are 100% wrong!”

Civil Disobedience

People had better start using “Civil Disobedience” while we still can. Don’t stop gathering or going to Church. Stand up to their fear-tactics now while we still can. They can’t enforce half of these threats right now unless they are ready to order the military against all of us so stand up while you still are able!! If not, you aren’t doing anything to help stop the global tyranny of communism.

If you are in the military or law enforcement and reading this, please remember the oath you took to uphold the Constitution and to defend American citizens, both foreign,…and domestic. Do not obey orders to do any form of gun confiscation or invading people’s properties. People are starting to stand up!! Peaceful protests such as this one are what need to start happening all across the nation. Even the Ohio Governor admitted that the protestors have the right to assemble because he knows that his “order” is unconstitutional and he doesn’t have a choice. These protests are also covered in today’s “Liberty Report” video. Let’s hold onto the positive things happening across the nation where people are still fighting for the Constitution and standing up for their rights. The purpose of our organization is to give power back to the people, one county at a time. As Ron Paul says, “I think the people are tired of it and people are starting to speak out. I think it’s going to grow by leaps and bounds because I think that is the natural thing to happen.”

Start by getting out and organizing with your neighbors and please consider signing up as one of our local coordinators. All we ask is that you provide us information of what’s happening in your county. The goal is so that counties who are less free can learn from those who are Constitutional and enjoy more of their civil liberties. We are also encouraging everyone who wants to get involved, to create a censorship free account on this Liberty social media platform for your county and start pulling people together. Patrick Wood (mentioned above) is the developer of the platform and it is secure from censorship actions of removal and infiltration like FB does.

“When government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.” – Thomas Jefferson

Stay Strong…Stay Healthy…and Stay Constitutional!

All Colorado Counties UNITE to recall the Governor

By on April 12, 2019

Thomas Jefferson said, “When government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.” The government of Colorado better begin to fear the people because it is clear that many are very unhappy with the tyranny going on at the state capitol during the 72nd General Assembly of the legislative session.

Free Counties is a grassroots liberty organization that gives power back to the people in the battle of protecting our inalienable rights and Jared Polis and his “Gang of Four” have been working very hard over several years to push the sustainable development agenda into every community in Colorado. In February, Polis started an office within the Office of Economic Development and International Trade (ODEIT) which will kick off the 126 federally designated areas that they have labelled Opportunity Zones. These Opportunity Zones are part of the plans of “Smart Cities” and they are Big Brother surveillance areas similar to what is used in China. Polis’ new office will partner with the Colorado Department of Local Affairs (DOLA) to implement this communist takeover of our local governments.

The Rockefeller Foundation says “because there is no cap to the number of Opportunity Funds that can be created nor limit to the total dollars that can be invested, Opportunity Zones have the potential to become the largest community development program in our nation’s history.” The Treasury and the IRS are the ones funding the Opportunity Zones and the White House is also pushing these “so-called opportunity zones” as described in this article where it explains how Mr. Trump signed the Executive Order to fund them.

You can go here to see if your community is affected by them.

All 64 counties in Colorado are represented in the Official Recall Colorado Governor Jared Polis grassroots movement and “Free Counties” supports this movement because the sustainable development smart cities agenda that is the antithesis of individual freedom and liberty that our Republic was founded upon and it seeks to abolish the inalienable rights of all citizens.

Please take a moment to read this important Press Release from the recall campaign and let’s all UNITE to take back our beautiful Centennial State!

Never Let a Good Crisis Go To Waste!

By on January 14, 2019

The La Plata County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) voted on June 12, 2018 to repeal sections 38-1 & 38-2 of the existing county code and replace it with a “new provision” (also now called 38-1) to deal with the homeless in our county during a recent wildfire; however, this “new provision” added 2 new sections that infringe upon the citizens’ unalienable rights which are protected by the United States Constitution, Bill of Rights, particularly the 1st and 2nd Amendments. This “new provision” was requested for a vote from the County Attorney, Sheryl Rogers on May 22, 2018 and was passed, unanimously, by all 3 County Commissioners on June 12, 2018.

Never let a good crisis go to waste, right?

Resolution to Protect La Plata County Citizen’s Property Rights

By on December 4, 2018

“Free Counties” presented the LaPlata County Board of County Commissioners with a “Resolution to Protect LaPlata County Citizen’s Property Rights” on behalf of the citizens; however, we want every individual to be able to make this request so that the voices of the people of LPC are truly being heard.

Please read this resolution: (*Note this is version #2 of the resolution currently being considered)

Resolution to Protect La Plata County Citizen’s Property Right

(presented on behalf of the citizens of La Plata County from freecounties.com/zoning-planning)

The undersigned elected officials and community planners of­ficially engaged to create planning programs for La Plata County, do hereby agree to the following:

• Planning involves and affects regulation of private property rights.

• Individual property ownership includes the right of usage and is protected by the U.S. Constitution as well as the Colorado Constitution (and subsequent Revised Statutes) with a basic foundation of inalienable rights and individual liberty for all citizens, as defined in the Declaration of Independence.

Recognizing these basic legal facts, we agree that all citizen’s private property rights shall be placed in the highest priority of consideration during the planning and zoning processes in La Plata County; and, in the event that any part of the planning and zoning process or recommendations resulting from the process shall potentially nega­tively impact any property rights, property owners or the value of their private property, those affected property owners shall:

a) Be provided full, timely disclosure notifying the property owner or owners of the potential that their private property rights may in some way be infringed or the value of their private property may be thereby affected, and,

b) Be provided full disclosure outlining the rights to be infringed upon, and

c) Be provided an opportunity to opt-out of any rights’ infringing regulation or policy.

The Colorado Constitution was written in 1876 to protect the citizen’s property rights when it states: “All persons have certain natural, essential and inalienable rights among which may be reckoned the right of enjoying and defending their lives and liberties; of acquiring, possessing, and protecting property; and of seeking and obtaining their safety and happiness.” (Article II Bill of Rights, Section 3)

Furthermore, in the event of property loss or usage by the private land owner due to planning restrictions or zoning changes, the affected private property owner shall be fully compensated as a result of such zoning or other related restrictions on the fair legal use of his property according to Article II Bill of Rights, Section 14Taking private property for private use. Private property shall not be taken for private use unless by consent of the owner, except for private ways of necessity, and except for reservoirs, drains, flumes or ditches on or across the lands of others, for agricultural, mining, milling, domestic or sanitary purposes.  And Section 15Taking property for public use compensation, how ascertained. Private property shall not be taken or damaged, for public or private use, without just compensation.

Further, affected property owners shall be notified of the potential impairment to their rights and their individual written approval required before engaging in any of the following:

a) Reconfiguration of zoning that intensifies or in any way adds restrictions to existing rights,

b) Implementation of conservations easements or Trading of Devel­opment Rights,

c) Acceptance of grant money by the above named government entity or their assigned planners, whether from non-profit organi­zations, governmental or private funding sources. Finally, it is agreed that no government representatives or their assigned planning agents, will come on to private property for any planning purpose without the written consent of the owner

Who’s Bringing in Outside $$$?

By on April 20, 2018

This was a previous FB meme that we shared from our previous “I-team files” account that reached 4,655 people:

California Billionaire, Tom Steyer, likes to spend his elite money in Colorado politics and has recently decided to get involved in our local affairs of La Plata County to push his agenda. In order to connect the dots between Steyer $$ and the group “United Against the Recall” which was filed with the Colorado Secretary of State’s office for the purpose of “Opposing the recall of Gwen Lachelt,” you only have to take these few clicks/steps:
1. Go to the “Colorado Secretary of State TRACER” system – http://tracer.sos.colorado.gov/PublicSite/Homepage.aspx
2. On the far left side, click on the + sign next to the “search” section and select, “expenditure search.”
3. Type “United Against the Recall” into the Expending Committee Name and click the red “SEARCH” button.
4. This will take you to the page to see how “United Against the Recall” is spending their money by paying “Conservation Colorado” for employee services.
Tom Steyer’s national group, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) launched and paid for this campaign to try and retain Commissioner Lachelt through their Colorado arm called “Conservation Colorado” who has an address on 3rd Avenue in Durango.

Now, for the false claims from Lachelt about how the Recall Effort (www.savelaplatacounty.com) is being funded by the Koch Brothers, just do a “Committee Search” for the name “LA PLATA COUNTY RECALL” to see any contributions or expenditures because everything they receive or spend must be reported to the Secretary of State’s office.

So…when it comes to Big $$$ coming into La Plata County politics, there is only one side who is receiving it.
