Who is Eric Coomer and What You Should Know About Him?

Dominion Voting Systems Controversial VP

Witnesses saw Coomer crash into building

In September 2021, witnesses saw Eric Coomer ram his vehicle into a building in Salida, Colorado. When police caught up to him–even though it was obvious that his vehicle was damaged and he fit the description as the person who did it–Coomer adamantly denied it.

A police body cam video confirmed it was him. When police spoke with Coomer’s attorney  and explained that he could be charged with a felony, Coomer finally confessed to crashing into the building, saying he was “under a lot of stress” and then telling the police they could “Google my name.”

Coomer was vice president of U.S. engineering for Dominion Voting Systems. According to his biography, Coomer graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a Ph.D. in Nuclear Physics. He was later promoted to voting systems officer of strategy and security at Dominion.

Police also revealed that Coomer left the scene to avoid a DUI by going to a local bar and having a few shots of alcohol immediately after the crash.

Joe Oltmann, the Denver businessman who received death threats after exposing Coomer for boasting about being able to rig the 2020 election against President Donald Trump, wrote in a Telegram post:

“Yeah… guy hits a building, lies about that he did it, three times… says he panicked. But he had nothing to do with the stealing of an election, ties to Antifa and deleting all his social accounts and posts before filing a lawsuit? Nah… all that is just a coincidence. My life has been turned upside down while this piece of excrement continues to wreak havoc on others. Even after we have the proof that the machines are stealing elections and proof mounts… they continue to lie, more… the counter suits and suits are going to be very fun.”

Oltmann, a Colorado podcaster and citizen journalist said this week he is outraged and indicates he is going to “do an entire episode on Eric Coomer.”

Oltmann

“I’m talking a Walter Cronkite broadcast,” he posted. “I’m going to rely on all of you to share it to the moon. I’m going to literally take out ads and buy billboards. Since this sh*tbag and his attorneys want to get the not so mainstream to lie and write slanderous articles.”

“I’m literally going to talk about this piece of trash and Dominion every single day,” Oltman continued. “I’m going to wake up every day and remind you that the consequences of Coomer and the stolen election was inflation, war and turmoil for hundreds of millions of Americans. I’m going to remind you all.”

“Tens of thousands of Americans are fighting across the nation to save our nation from these satanist trash heaps. 68% of Americans know the election was stolen,” he noted. “The gaslighting is just going to intensify the consequences.”

“Sleep well,” he ended. “God is at the wheel and Jesus never said be a pacifist… not even a real thing…”

Who is Coomer?

Coomer is the Vice President and Officer for Voting Systems Strategy and Security at Dominion Election Systems as well as a member of the Antifa terrorist organization during the 2020 Presidential election. According to Conservapedia, “Friends describe him a socialpath”– person with a psychopathic personality whose behavior is antisocial, often criminal, and who lacks a sense of moral responsibility or social conscience.

Police cam shows Coomer handcuffed in patrol car

While mainstream far-left media systematically reports with buzzwords and phrases such as “voiced baseless claims,” “Big lie” and “with no evidence” to shield Coomer, the facts are becoming more of a challenge to distort or downplay.

In 2016, Coomer was asked if it was possible to bypass the Dominion Voting Systems software and go directly to the data tables that manage systems running elections in Illinois. His response was, “Yes, if they have access.”

Bypassing the election systems software means whoever has access can potentially manipulate the vote without many risks of detection. Coomer was asked who would have access to these data tables? Coomer replied, “Vendors, election officials, and others who need to be granted access.”

Coomer has filed lawsuits through the defamation firm Clare Locke LLP against various news organizations, Sidney Powell, Rudy Giuliani, and most recently, MyPillow mogul Mike Lindell. 

In 2017 Coomer explained how to alter votes in the Dominion Voting Systems in a Chicago demonstration.

In September and October 2020, Coomer personally was in Georgia to make a “critical software change” to all Georgia’s 30,000 Dominion voting machines “without adequate testing or certification from the U.S. Election Assistance Commission.”

Popular social media meme

After Oltmann infiltrated Antifa Zoom chats in Denver in which Coomer participated in, he said:

“His Facebook account, he had posted the Antifa Manifesto a day after it’s was posted by a major Antifa organization. So it’s not like he waited and somewhere along the line somebody gave it to him. It was literally that day….”

I wanted to research everything that was out there, like anything, anything that he touched. And everywhere I ran into him having his fingers in it, like he was the one in Arizona that was actually pitching the project to the election Commission in Arizona in 2019.”

October 29th [2020] he was in Georgia as the expert witness in a lawsuit. He was in Georgia selling the product. He was in Georgia for the spokesperson.”

He was in Pennsylvania selling the product. He was in Pennsylvania meeting with county clerks. He was in Michigan installing the system. Like this is a guy that’s not supposed to be involved in every minute detail of the organization. He is the Director of Strategy and Security. And there he is, everywhere you turn. He’s everywhere.”

Coomer applied a “critical software change” “without adequate testing or certification from the U.S. Election Assistance Commission” shortly before voting started in Georgia, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Oltmann has claimed:

🔹Coomer told an Antifa Zoom chat, “Don’t worry Trump won’t win the election, we fixed that.”

🔹On a conference call with other members of Antifa, Coomer said:“Don’t worry about the election, Trump’s not gonna win. I made f**king sure of that!”

🔹Coomer posted on Facebook on July 21, 2016:

“If you are planning to vote for the autocratic, narcissistic, fascists, ass-hat blowhard and his Christianjihadist VP pic, UNFRIEND ME NOW

No, I’m not joking.

I’m all for reasoned political discourse and healthy debate- I’m looking at you [3 names of friends].

I disagree with you three on many philosophical grounds but respect your opinions.

Only and absolute F**KING IDIOT could ever vote for that wind-bag f**k-tard FASCIST RACIST F**K!

No bulls**t, I don’t give a damn if you’re friend, family, or random acquaintance, pull the lever, mark an oval, touch a screen for that carnival barker—UNFRIEND ME NOW.

I have no desire whatsoever to ever interact with you.

You are beyond hope, beyond reason. you are controlled by fear, reaction, and bulls**t. Get your s**t together.

Oh, it that doesn’t persuade you, F**K YOU! Seriously, this f**king ass-clown stands against everything that makes this country awesome!

You want in on that? You deserve nothing but contempt.?”

George Soros’ Colorado Secretary of State Goes Offensive Against Election Audits

After three official forensic examinations of the Mesa County electronic voting systems, the Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold—known for her tremendous financial campaign support from George Soros—has some serious explaining to do…but she has elite media to do that for her.

Griswold, a former Barack Obama activist, was one of the beneficiaries of the George Soros “Secretary of State Project,” the American non-profit, progressive 527 political action committee. They focused on electing “reform-minded progressive” Secretaries of State in battleground states, who typically oversee the election process. The Project was funded by George Soros and members of the Democracy Alliance. 

The original intent in 2006 was to protect Obama by having control of secretary of state offices in five key states — Iowa, Minnesota, Nevada, New Mexico and Ohio. The initiative expanded and is a major reason President Trump is not in the White House today.

Among some of the Secretary of State offices who benefited by this Soros group are Michigan’s Jocelyn Benson, Arizona’s Katy Hobbs Pennsylvania’s Katherine Bookvar.

Note the date of Soro’s puppet’s tweet. President Trump had barely been in office.

🔹The first forensic report in Mesa County revealed that at least 29,000 election records had been deleted at the direction of  Griswold.

🔹The second Mesa audit exposed numerous system issues that could allow any computer in the world to connect to the voting system server, and 36 separate wireless networking devices in the voting system.

🔹In the third report, there is undeniable evidence that vote counts were changed and manipulated. This audit revealed during early voting, someone randomly created a new election, reloaded ballots into the new election, and likely illegally changed the voters intent on thousands of ballots.

While the audits reveal an illegal voting system was involved, evidence now shows cover-up evidence of numerous serious crimes.

What has Griswold been doing about the illegal activity that she obviously knows more about?

🔹She introduced a bill in the Colorado Senate that, among other flagrant and extreme attempts to seize election power from local election officials, would cause oversight of Colorado elections solely in the hands of her.

🔹Griswold’s SB22- 153 bill is so atrocious that it would make it a crime for election officials to criticize how the state runs elections and bans public audits of elections.

🔹She has used the power of left wing media to distort the narrative to condemn those involved in the audits. Here is just one example of the biased reporting:

__________________________

🔹Griswold appointed Democratic coharts to various position to influence actions against those involved in the audits:

Runbeck and Williams

Among those was Wayne Williams, an El Paso City, Colorado Council member and Senior Advisor to Runbeck Election Systems.

Runbeck, a Phoenix, Arizona based ballot printing and election automation company, is highly suspected in election fraud across the U.S. READ MORE HERE.

Despite the controversy, Mesa County signed a new contract worth (at least in the $100,000 to $300,000 range) with Runbeck in July 2021.

It was Williams who played the lead role in 2015 to force all Colorado counties to use Dominion election systems. Counties have sued Williams to opt out of using the suspect equipment.

Meanwhile, Griswold used her power as chief elections officer to remove Tina Peters (see below) as elections director, and then appointed former Mesa County Clerk and current Mesa County Treasurer Sheila Reiner to oversee the election.

The Mesa County Commissioners did not like that decision.

“There is an immediate need. An immediate need to counter what the Secretary of State is doing. Our position is she is out of her lane,” County Commissioner Scott McInnis declared at the time.

The bottom line is Griswold and her disciples apparently designed a way to cover-up evidence of the crimes committed in Mesa County, and to suppress citizen discovery of new evidence.

The third report was particularly troublesome for Griswold as it verified true illegal activity occurred in two different elections, revealing there was no “fluke” or “glitch.” There is no possible way this manipulation was an accident.

A masked Griswold goes offensive.

The multiple databases in the voting system show:

🔹Ballot and ballot batch records were moved.

🔹These records were changed, breaking the chain of evidence.

The vote count in Mesa County’s voting system is impossible to authenticate, or prove accurate, voiding the legal certification of Mesa’s election.

Election Fraud is Widespread

In a separate legal case, Griswold is suing the Elbert County Clerk and Recorder in a frantic attempt to seize hard drives containing election record backups. Colorado County Clerk Dallas Shroeder apparently copied those files to protect citizen’s votes.

On March 11, 2022, Griswold attempted to get a lawsuit filed against her by several county clerks and county commissioners tossed.

Joining County Clerk Schroeder is Douglas County Clerk Merlin Klotz, and County Commissioners from Park and Rio Blanco counties, all who want access to election servers.

They want to see if the election equipment software update, known as a “Trusted Build” deleted election data.

When these county’s backups are forensically analyzed, evidence of similar activities could show Griswold’s illegal conduct was more widespread.

State law enforcement officials, including CO Attorney General Weiser, are expected to demand access to those backups in support of a thorough criminal investigation.

Griswold’s Other Desperate Attempts

Tina Peters, County Clerk and Recorder of Mesa County, has been the target of Griswold’s venom since the November 2020 Election.

Peters has been steadfast on integrity knowing election records are legally supposed to be preserved for 25 months per Colorado law, and 22 months according to Federal Law. This was all deleted from Mesa County’s Dominion machines. 

Peters

Peter’s said Griswold’s bill “is not ‘an elections bill’, this is an attempt to further limit transparency into Colorado’s election process. Soros operative Gestapo Griswold’s Senate Bill 22-153 is a bald attempt to prevent anyone from knowing how our voting systems work. Among other things, it criminalized election officials’ free speech.”

Griswold found solace in a willing mainstream media to shield her…and go offensive with her fellow Soros influenced Democrats. She went to media, including NPR to criticize Peters and The Gateway Pundit for reporting on Griswold’s request to destroy 2020 Election data.

Peters copied election data from her county that Jena Griswold told her to delete. For this Griswold had Peters’ home and offices raided. Observers noted Griswold wanted to erase all the evidence from the 2020 election but Peters spoiled her plans.

By November 2021, Colorado citizens filed a lawsuit against Griswold. Hanks et al v. Griswold was filed in Denver District Court. The most damning facts of the case claim that Griswold and her employees destroyed election records from the 2020 election. 

🔹Griswold raided Clerk Peter’s office on August 10, 2021 with the approval of Mesa County DA, Dan Rubenstein and the newly appointed Sheriff Matt Lewis. 

🔹Griswold raided a home, in the middle of the night, with four children asleep. In the raid all electronics were confiscated, including children’s devices.  This was related to the earlier raid.  

🔹Griswold raided Peter’s office a second time where she, in cooperation with Mesa County DA and Sheriff, seized the voting equipment.  For some odd reason there was no official accounting of the equipment that was taken, 

Regarding the Elbert County voting records, in an affidavit signed by Clerk Schroeder, he explains his actions:

“I was told that there was evidence that the ‘trusted build’ process that was performed on Mesa County’s Dominion voting system during May of 2021, had erased electronic files that were part of the 2020 election records,” he said. “This information was concerning, because I have a legal duty to retain election records for 25 months after every election.”

“The purpose of retaining the records is so that a proper audit of an election can be performed,” he explained. “I was concerned that the ‘trusted build’ process might erase electronic election records from the Elbert County elections systems, which would violate state law.”

This Anti-COVID Regimen We’ve Used Two Years Has Kept Us Safe

By Dodie Dennis

Being a registered nurse for 40 years, as soon as we heard about COVID-19 pandemic, I did extensive research to find the right supplements and foods for Jack and me to fight it. (Shown at the bottom of this article).

Both of us agreed we would not be taking any so-called experimental vaccines that were rushed into development and not adequately proven.

We elected to modify our vitamins, minerals and food intake instead.

Hard to get.

Hydroxychloroquine, which has been around since 1946, has been used to treat autoimmune diseases, such as systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis, in addition to malaria and others.

The more research I did, talking with and learning from physicans, nurses and researchers, I decided on a regimen for us.

Let me just say, we have taken road trips through Texas, Louisiana, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Washington D.C., West Virginia, Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, California, and Colorado since June 2020.

Some of the crowds we’ve been in included Graceland, Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, D.C., Ark Encounter, Branson, Royal Gorge, Sea World, concerts, various zoos, museums and theaters.

We are not fond of wearing masks, but out of respect for others, we do so only in medical offices, hospitals, businesses or restaurants that require it (usually we go someplace else).

We have relatives that had COVID, some two or three times, even after taking the jab. We know more people who have died from it who were recently jabbed. We also know many nurses and even doctors who will not get jabbed. We are respectful to any individual for whatever their choice is, but we will not be jabbed.

Our Anti-COVID Regimen

🔹Today we eat a low sodium (under 2,000 mgs a day) diet. We emphasize more vegetables and fruit, and smaller entrees of meat, chicken, seafood, etc. We do prefer chicken (not fried) over meat.

🔹The #1 thing we take every evening is zinc with tonic water. It’s the closest thing to hydroxychloroquine that we know of. It’s inexpensive and doesn’t require a prescription.

🔹Tonic water contains quinine, which has been used for centuries to treat malaria.  Chloroquine is a relative of quinine — both are extracted from the bark of the cinchona tree. Quinine has been around for centuries, discovered by Peruvian natives in the 1820s.

There are a few reasons why quinine and chloroquine work as an anti-viral. First they can change the pH in the cells, making them more alkaline (thus impairing virus’s ability to replicate).
 
Second, quinine and chloroquine help bring otherwise bio-unavailable zinc into your cells, and the zinc inhibits the virus’s ability to replicate inside your cells.

🔹Sunlight (vitamin D) also minimizes the effects of viruses.  A 2020 study found that people with lower levels of vitamin D were more likely to die from coronavirus. 

🔹Vitamin C is used to help our God given immune systems fight off any viruses we come in contact with. We take Emergen-C containing 1000 mg of Vitamin C as well as B Vitamins and other antioxidants.

🔹We also take a proprietary blend of CoQ10, Citicoline, and refined fish oil.

🔹In addition, we consume Green Pasture Products such as fermented Cod Liver Oil along with their Concentrated Butter Oil.

🔹Concentrated Butter Oil is made from milk produced by rapidly growing greengrass fed cows. It is extracted and concentrated through centrifugation. The speed of grass growth, timing of grazing, species of grass, climate, and extraction method are all-important factors in making real Concentrated Butter Oil.

Their blend contains naturally occurring Vitamins A and D. It’s a natural source of Omega Fatty Acids.

🔹This cod oil is so good for your heart, brain and joints. I’ve tried many brands over the years (former national champion volleyball player) and Green Pasture helped me in just a matter of days like no other.

🔹But my go to, especially for joint health, is without a doubt the Green Pasture Skate Liver Oil.

🔹Last, but not least, we take probiotics that supports gut health–the basis for immune system health.

Highly recommended!

Colorado Baker Sued For Refusing to Make Sex Gender Transition Cake Gets Support From Attorney Generals

Do you remember the 2018 Supreme Court case ruled in favor of the Colorado baker Jack Phillips who was sued because he refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple?

Phillips

The bakery received a phone call during Phillips’ first legal battle in 2017 from Denver attorney Autumn Scardina requesting a cake in honor of his/her gender transition. Philips said the attorney asked for “a cake pink on the inside with blue icing on the outside.”

“We told the customer, this caller, that this cake was a cake we couldn’t create because of the message, the caller turned around and sued us,” Phillips told Fox News in March. “This customer came to us intentionally to get us to create a cake or deny creating a cake that went against our religious beliefs.”

“This customer had been tracking our case for multiple years. This case was just a request to get us to fall into a trap,” Phillips explained.

Now, a group of state attorneys general are officially going on record for the baker for this second lawsuit.

In Texas, Attorney General Ken Paxton joined the multistate amicus brief in support of religious liberty, in the case that is pending in the Colorado Court of Appeals. 

Phillips. Scardina.

Scardina v. Masterpiece Cakeshop is the second case brought against Jack Phillips, a baker, under state public accommodation laws—this time because he refused on religious grounds to make a custom cake celebrating a customer’s gender transition. 

The previous case against Phillips was resolved in his favor by the United States Supreme Court. 

This amicus brief argues that the First Amendment’s Free Exercise Clause prevents the government from enforcing state laws that interfere with Americans’ exercise of their religious beliefs.  

“The federal government cannot attack certain religious practices and overburden our way of life under the guise of public accommodation. We are a country where people of various faiths share the common goal of freedom and that must be protected,” Attorney General Paxton said. “I will continue to fight for the religious liberty of every Texan.”

Transgender State Rep’s Spouse Suspended, Attorney Disbarred After Pedophile Sting Operation, School Board Director Accused

‘Can of worms’ unleashed in local Democratic politics


Three separate cases involving transgenders, pedophiles and prostitution pimping has rocked the state House of Representatives, a prestigious law firm and a local school board in Colorado.

The story begins when an associate attorney for the Waltz Reed law firm in Denver who was disbarred last week after a police sting operation targeting pedophiles and child porn producers showed him as a perpetrator.

However, this incident “opened up a can of worms” in local Colorado politics, according to some observers.

Case #1: Richard Howieson

In January 2021, Richard A. Howieson pleaded guilty in Jefferson County District Court to a class 6 felony of obscenity – promotion to a minor.

He was convicted for exchanging messages with a Jefferson County detective posing as a 14-year-old girl on messaging apps Kik and Whisper.

During those exchanges, Howieson sent a nude photo of himself and agreed to meet his interlocutor the same day. Howieson drove to the meeting place, where he was arrested by Jefferson County Sheriff’s officers and charged with internet sexual exploitation of a child.

A search on the sex offender registry shows Howieson currently living at a motel in Golden Colorado with this identifying photo:

Richard Alexander Howieson

That count was dismissed when Howieson pleaded guilty to obscenity — promotion to minor. 

On March 23, 2021, Howieson was sentenced to four years of probation with conditions, including successful completion of offense-specific treatment, completion of a substance abuse evaluation and treatment, total abstinence from illegal substances, and adult sex offender conditions.

This includes compliance with Colorado Computer Use Agreement, maintenance of full-time verifiable employment, payment of restitution, maintenance of a stable residence, and registration as a sex offender. 

The Presiding Disciplinary Judge approved Howieson’s stipulation to discipline and suspended Howieson for 18 months, effective July 21, 2021. To be reinstated to the practice of law in Colorado, Howieson must prove by clear and convincing evidence that he is rehabilitated, has complied with all applicable disciplinary orders and rules and is fit to practice law. 

Case #2: Tay Anderson

According to local media, the friend of a state representative (Case #3 below) is Tay Anderson, a prominent Black Lives Matter member, a school board member and suspected serial pedophile involving over 60 children.

In March 2021, the nonprofit Black Lives Matter 5280 issued a statement announcing that a woman had reported to them that Anderson had sexually assaulted her. Denver Public Schools hired an outside firm to investigate this claim.

Former members of Never Again Colorado, an anti-gun violence group, claimed that some of Anderson’s behavior was inappropriate when he was serving as the group’s president in 2018.

On May 30, 2021, Anderson announced that he would step away from his duties on the Denver School Board until the investigation was completed.

Anderson, who often uses a bullhorn to stand out in crowds, responded to the allegations on Twitter, saying, “these unsubstantiated false allegations have caused a great deal of trauma to our entire district, and our students deserve better. These false claims have put my family and I in harm’s way, and now as a father and son, I must protect those I love first, therefore I will be stepping back from everyday board functions until the completion of the independent investigation.”

On July 14, 2021, Anderson announced in a letter to the board that he would be resuming his duties as a board member.

“The independent investigation has bogged down, drifted into new areas, and dragged well past the timeline that was agreed to,” Anderson wrote. “No credible evidence has emerged to support any allegations of sexual misconduct by me. I have not been arrested, charged, or even contacted by any law enforcement agency regarding any of these false claims against me. And, more than anything, our DPS (Denver Public Schools) community has been fractured by these false allegations, and I am left compelled to try and heal the divisions which this situation has caused.”

Then, on May 25, Denver Public Schools parent Mary-Katherine Brooks Fleming testified before the Colorado House judiciary committee.

Brooks said that “62 young people — 61 high school students and one recent graduate — came to her starting in August for help and protection from a specific man ‘in a position of trust.”

She asserted that 61 of the young people were either undocumented immigrants or recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program for immigrants. The allegations ranged from unwanted touching to “violent acts of rape,” she said.

The youngest person who came to her for help was fourteen years old, Brooks Fleming said. None wanted to report the adult to the police, she said, and the young people were so afraid “they could not whisper his name.”

The next day, March 26, when Black Lives Matter 5280 released the claim that Anderson had sexually assaulted the unidentified woman, it followed previous and other wide-ranging abuse charges before the Colorado Legislatature. The BLM charge was regarding an unnamed man “in a position of trust” involving 62 reported victims.

Anderson was considered a rising star in Denver politics and activism prior to the BLM accusations and internet postings about his homosexual relationship with a known gangster.

Denver City School Board Secretary Tay Anderson’s boyfriend and co-conspirator is human sex trafficker Hashim Tarik Coates (DOB: 10-1-75) -currently residing at: 15700 E Alameda Pkwy Apt 306, Aurora, CO 80017.

One post revealed Anderson, “doesn’t just promote and support this thug and human tafficking Hashim T. Coates he brings him into Denver City School District buildings around your children because Hashim T. Coates and Tay Anderson are lovers.”

“In 2017 it was revealed that one of Democrat candidate and friend of Tay Anderson Morgan Carroll’s former, staffer, Hashim T. Coates, was busted for visiting a prostitute and, then, shooting at his car full of people with a really real gun. Hashim T. Coates has no training in firearms and didn’t even hit the vehicle, which means that innocent bystanders could have been MURDERED.”

Hashim Coates is no stranger to banging prostitutes and “Sarah” (name changed to protect her identity) was only 14 years old when she alleges that Hashim T. Coates put a gun to her head and forced her to perform oral sex acts on him and another man while Tay Anderson was present: “I was 14 in 2016 when Hashim put a gun to me at a party and forced me to suck someone’s d**k. I was too scared to do anything and was only 14 years old, so who was going to believe me? Tay [Anderson] and several other high schoolers were all there. I remember I felt like I had to suck Tay’s dick too, even though no weapons were pointed at me, it felt like an obligation to me, so I did. He was probably 17 or 18 at the time. [Tay] made me swallow. That night I probably had some form of sex with six or seven of the men present, and Hashim always had his gun, so I felt that I had to do everyone there.”

Denver Public Schools had previously found that Anderson had used social media to retaliate against a whistleblower who’d reportedly been the victim of harassment by a former high school principal.

Soon after, new accusations surfaced from six female former colleagues, who say Anderson created an unsafe work environment at Never Again Colorado, an anti-gun organization that he presided over in 2018.

Case #3 Elysia & Brianna Titone

In a third incident, another attorney has been suspended from practicing law. Elysia Hassebroek Titone, the spouse of transgender Colorado state Rep. Brianna Titone, (D-Arvada) and supporter of Tay Anderson.

In early 2019, one of her clients couldn’t get in touch with her, according to a conditional admission of misconduct.

She was investigated by disciplinary authorities for potentially improperly abandoning her client’s representation.

Elysia & Brianna Titone

Elysia Hassebroek Titone gave authorities a termination letter she claimed to have sent the client. However, she later admitted she fabricated that letter, according to the admission of misconduct.

She was suspended for six months and declined to comment to the media.

More States End China Virus COVID-19 Emergency Restrictions

 Emergency orders issued in response to the COVID-19 pandemic ended in two states last week: 

  • Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey (R) issued an order terminating the statewide COVID-19 emergency. Ivey first declared a state of emergency in reaction to the pandemic on March 13, 2020.  
  • Gov. Jared Polis (D) ended Colorado’s COVID-19 health emergency on July 8. Polis subsequently issued a new “Recovery Executive Order,” allowing him to retain some aspects of his original order, including the continued deployment of the National Guard to assist local governments with vaccination efforts. Polis first declared a health emergency in response to the pandemic on March 10, 2020. 

As of July 9, COVID-19 emergency orders have expired in 24 states. They remain active in 26 states. 


Governors and state agencies in all 50 states issued orders declaring active emergencies in response to the coronavirus pandemic. These orders allowed officials to access resources unavailable to them during non-emergencies, like stockpiles of medical goods and equipment, and to waive or suspend certain rules and regulations.

Governors and state agencies relied on emergency power authority to enact lockdown and stay-at-home orders, mask mandates, and other restrictions on businesses and individuals.

From Atlas Rockets to Protecting the Statue of Liberty: 40 Ways to Use WD-40

Herd It Through the Grapevine #6

Long before WD-40 was a household name and a can resided in practically every home across America, it was an obscure product invented for a singular purpose.

Back in 1953, Norman Larsen, founder of the Rocket Chemical Company, created WD-40 for the Convair aeronautical company to protect the SM-65 Atlas missile–the American military’s first operational intercontinental ballistic missile.

In order to reduce its weight, the Atlas had a very thin steel skin and even thinner steel balloon-style fuel tanks. It was critical to protect the skin and the paper-thin steel fuel tanks from corrosion and WD-40 accomplished that task by both displacing water molecules on the metal and penetrating into the pores of the metal surface.

Although the SM-65 Atlas missile was briefly put into service, as a nuclear missile platform it was, thankfully, never deployed as such. After retirement as a military missile system in the mid 1960s, the de-weaponized Atlas system had a long and fruitful career as NASA’s launch platform of choice–sending countless satellites, the Mercury missions, and the Gemini missions into space.

Although we know that WD-40 is comprised of compounds like hydrocarbons and petroleum, the formula of WD-40 is a trade secret and the product was never patented in order to avoid disclosing the formula.

39.    WD-40 attracts fish. Spray a little on live bait or lures and you
will be catching the big one in no time. Also, it’s a lot cheaper than
the chemical attractants that are made for just that purpose.   Keep
in mind though, using some chemical laced baits or lures for fishing are not allowed in some states.


40.    Use it for fire ant bites. It takes the sting away immediately and stops the itch. 


41.    It is great for removing crayon from walls. Spray it on the marks
and wipe with a clean rag.

and dried a tube of lipstick with a load of laundry, saturate the
lipstick spots with WD-40 and rewash. Presto! The lipstick is gone!


43.    If you spray it inside a wet distributor cap, it will displace the
moisture, allowing the engine to start.


44. Ants don’t like it.

A Special Message From Dodie Dennis (Retired RN)

With 40 years experience as a licensed Registered Nurse on a cruise line, a Colorado ski resort, and in Phoenix, AZ, I did everything from Operating Room to Immunology to all levels of Newborn Care.

Among my favorite jobs was teaching childbirth and nutrition classes. For the most part, I believe whole foods trump supplements. And eating a nutritious diet loaded with veggies, grass-fed meat, and plenty of good fats is the starting point. You certainly cannot supplement your way out of poor dietary choices. However, even with the best diet, there may be a few gaps that we might want to fill to “supplement” a solid diet.

For example, Omega-3 fatty acids are vitally important to our health. Our Omega-3 to Omega-6 ratio should be 1:1 or 1:2. Sadly, the average person’s is more like 1:20. Not only are we not getting enough Omega-3 from sources like grass-fed meats and fish/seafood, we’re also over consuming Omega 6 (e.g. vegetable oils, excessive nut consumption) – a double whammy.

Personally, Jack and I don’t eat enough fish to get adequate Omega-3s due to concerns about toxins, mercury, etc. That’s why we welcome a new sponsor to “supplement” with Green Pasture Fermented Cod Liver Oil (FCLO).

Welcome Green Pasture Products to CleverJourneys

I use the word “supplement” loosely here, since FCLO is really a whole food. Not only that, but it’s also a traditional food with a long history of use. Quite the opposite of highly processed fish oils.

Green Pasture’s website

Fermented Cod Liver Oil is simply cod livers fermented naturally to extract the oils. The cold-processing method maintains all the fat soluble vitamins. Most fish oils on the market are heat processed. What’s worse is that they’re then bleached and deodorized, and since most of the vitamins have been removed or destroyed, synthetic vitamins are added back in.

FCLO contains more than Omega 3’s. It’s also a great source of Vitamin A and Vitamin D, and contains small amounts of Vitamin K2, Vitamin E, and various other quinones.

If you want to try out the amazing benefits of Fermented Cod Liver Oil, or maybe your current supply is running low, we highly recommend Green Pasture.

Green Pasture’s website

They are the only company to supply naturally fermented cod liver oil that we are aware of (and the one recommended most highly by the Weston Price Foundation).

Check out Green Pasture’s website now and tell them CleverJourneys sent you.

In addition to Fermented Cod Liver oil, Green Pasture also sells other products like high vitamin butter oil, coconut oil, and coconut ghee.

Jack likes Green Pasture because they are an American business that share the same patriotic values we do.

National Parks Fun Facts

.

Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado was the first national park established to protect human created structures and history, including 5,000 archaeological sites and 600 cliff dwellings of the Ancestral Pueblo people.


California’s Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks is home to the largest living single-stem tree in the world, the giant 275 foot tall General Sherman.


The smallest national park unit, Thaddeus Kosciuszko National Memorial, only takes up roughly 0.02 acres in downtown Philadelphia.

The diversity of plant and animal life, beauty of the mountains, and incredible campsites and communities in Tennessee and North Carolina make Great Smoky Mountains National Park the most visited (12 million people in 2020) national park.


Of course the country’s largest state, Alaska, is home to its largest park, Wrangell-St. Elias National Park & Preserve at 13.2 million acres.

The longest cave system in the world with more than 3,454 mapped miles of caves is located beneath Mammoth Cave National Park in Kentucky.

Speaking of caves, Carlsbad Caverns National Park in New Mexico is home to the deepest cave in the country at 1,593 feet.

Ironically, the first state, Delaware, is the only one without a single national park or national monument. Being the second smallest state, there’s plenty of options within driving distance though.
 

Amazing Snow Sculptures to Make You Smile

In our neck of the woods–the Texas Hill Country, over an hour northwest of San Antonio–we usually have to travel to see winter snow.

Wouldn’t you know it? The one year San Antonio experienced a whopping 13.5 inches of snow in 1985, the International Airport had loaned their only snowplow to Denver.

It was a rarity to even experience any type of snowfall growing up in the Alamo City.

During my college days at Texas State University (Southwest Texas State University back in the mid-1970’s) we would send some of our campus beauty queens to Michigan in exchange for packages of snow. It was a thrilling tradition for us coeds to participate in an actual snowball fight.

Most of my experience with snow has been around Lake Tahoe and New Mexico.

Dodie was a nurse and lived in Vail, Colorado after she left working the cruise ships in the Bahamas and Caribbean back in the late ’70s-early ’80’s.

On the few occasions that I did see snow sculptures (mainly in Cloudcroft, New Mexico), it was a novel delight.

Here are more snow sculptures to make you smile. Be sure to pass them on so others can experience the simple happiness too.

U.S. Space Force Has a Base and an Earth Station, Pence Announced

Vice President Mike Pence announced Wednesday, December 9, 2020 that Cape Canaveral Air Force Station and Patrick Air Force Base have been renamed as part of the new military branch Space Force.

Pence

“Today we make history with the first two installations in the history of the United States Space Force to bear the name of this new branch of the service,” Pence said at Cape Canaveral.

The new names are Cape Canaveral Space Force Station and Patrick Space Force Base.

The name changes, ordered by the Trump administration, had been on hold through an agreement between Congress and Air Force officials, pending completion of the 2021 National Defense Authorization Act, which is before Congress.

President Trump has indicated he would veto the $740.5 billion defense bill if it does not include a repeal of the Section 230 law that shields internet companies from being liable for postings.

Pence’s announcement came as he was in Florida to attend a meeting of the National Space Council at Kennedy Space Center. Pence is chairman of the council.

Potential sites for a permanent U.S. Space Command are:

Kirtland Air Force Base in New Mexico

Patrick Air Force Base in Florida

Offutt Air Force Base in Nebraska

Port San Antonio (Formerly Kelly Air Force Base) in Texas

Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado

Redstone Arsenal in Alabama

SPACECOM, established in August 2019, remains temporarily housed at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs. They are responsible for military operations related to space, while the Space Force organizes and trains space personnel. Like the other military branches, the Space Force has its headquarters at the Pentagon

On Tuesday, Space Florida President and CEO Frank DiBello told the Enterprise Florida Board of Directors that Florida has made a “very strong case” for the Patrick base to be the permanent U.S. Space Command headquarters.

The base, south of Cape Canaveral in Brevard County, is one of six finalists to be command headquarters for Space Force.

A final decision is expected early next year.

In 2020, graduates of the Air Force undergraduate space training school who transitioned to the Space Force had the option to pursue specialized career tracks such as orbital warfare, space electronic warfare, space battle management, and space access and sustainment,” said Brig. Gen. DeAnn Burt, director of operations and communication.

Look Closer: One of the Most Disturbing Things I Have Seen

The first moment I saw this photo some years ago, I smiled. Zany, goofy, happy-go-lucky high school students having a wonderful second captured in time for their class picture.

Just as with any class photo I’ve seen over the years, the students displayed an assemblage of characters: cheery, worry free, happy, excited, and in this case clueless.

It brought back memories of my own class photos and how the photograpers of the Goldbeck Company in San Antonio would skillfully line us up. They’d quickly have us ready and posed on bleachers in a matter of minutes.

This photo was different in that the students were more casual and relaxed. I thought how cool that would have been to have a picture like this instead of the rigid, single filed and structured experiences my classes endured.

But as I scanned across the rows, left to right and front row first, a closer examination startled me. I used a magnifying glass to zone in. What I saw brought chills down my spine.

Then when I looked to see where the school was, it actually startled me. My thoughts went numb for a couple of seconds while I regained my presence of mind.

This photo was an eerie foreshadow of the infamous school shooting that took place on April 20, 1999.

This was Columbine.

The perpetrators sitting on the upper left, Eric (black hat) and Dylan (sunglasses), were posing as if aiming a gun at the camera. This photo is believed to be taken three weeks before the two would go on a shooting spree, murdering 12 students, one teacher, and injuring 24 others.

These Wacky American Town Names Will Make You Laugh

Our faith in America’s sense of humor was restored during the pandemic summer of 2020.

We escaped from the onslaught of negative news and propaganda by just getting away. Our travels  through 14 states and Washington D.C. for over a month thoroughly offered a lighter side of truth and experiences.

Besides counting the number of Trump (159) and Biden (0) flags and banners along the way, we got a kick from some of the names and places we saw. Uranus, Missouri,  Santa Claus, Indiana and Hot Coffee, Mississippi were three favorites that come to mind.

To pass some of the highway mile time away, we researched and gathered humorous and fun town names from all 50 states. Here’s are list:

ALABAMA

Screamer, an unincorporated community in southeastern Alabama, may have come from 19th century Native Americans who screamed and  heckled white train travelers as they passed by what was then a reservation. Smut Eye, Alabama is doozie too.

ALASKA

Unalaska has over 4,500 residents, making it the largest city in the Aleutian Islands. Originally, Unangan residents named it Agunalaksh, a word that means “near the peninsula.” Eek, Alaska is noteworthy.

ARIZONA

Why a call a town?” Yes, that’s right “Why” is a small community near the U.S.-Mexico border namhed after the Y-shaped intersection of two nearby highways. But because of an Arizona law requiring place names have at least three letters, “Y” became the much more pragmatic “Why.”

ARKANSAS

Smackover, a town of 1800 people in southern Arkansas, was once a major oil producer. Settled by French trappers in the early 19th century,  “Smackover” may have derived from the French name for a local creek, Chemin Couvert, which means “covered way”—and “sumac couvert” means a covering of sumac trees, a local plant. Goobertown is another fun one

CALIFORNIA

Rough and Ready, California, is named after an old mining company with that same label. It was the first to secede from the Union and become its own “republic” in 1850 as a protest against mining taxes, prohibition mandates, and laws that weren’t enforced. They rejoined the United States three months later.

COLORADO

Colorado has No Name. When government official first marked a newly constructed exit off I-70 with a sign reading “No Name” as a placeholder, it stuck.

CONNECTICUT

Hazardville, Connecticut, was an 1800s industrial village that made gunpowder. The town was named after Colonel Augustus George Hazard, who purchased and expanded the gunpowder company in 1837.

DELAWARE

Corner Ketch is an unincorporated community in New Castle County, Delaware. A rough-and-tumble local bar was known for warning strangers that if they didn’t get you in there, “They’ll ketch ye at the corner.”

Climax, Georgia sits at the highest point on the railroad between Savannah and the Chattahoochee River.

HAWAII

Volcano, Hawaii sits near the Hilo Volcano and several volcanic hot spots.

IDAHO

Slickpoo, near Culdesac, Idaho, was once a bustling village and site of a Catholic mission. Landowner Josiah Slickpoo donated acreage to the missionaries. Dickshooter, Idaho made us laugh too.

ILLINOIS

Sandwich got its name from Sandwich, New Hampshire.

INDIANA

Santa Claus, Indiana celebrates the spirit of Christmas every day, but especially at the Post Office in December. Gnaw Bone is an interesting name too.

IOWA

What cheer Iowa has in What Cheer, Iowa. It was derived from an old English greeting.

KANSAS

Gas, Kansas is the butt of many jokes. “You just passed Gas.” “Gas Kan.” “Get Gas!” Natural gas was discovered in the area in 1898.

KENTUCKY

Bugtussle is a tiny spot on the Kentucky-Tennessee border is an homage to doodlebugs. Personally, I think Kentucky has some of the best town names with Knob Lick, Bald Knob, Chicken Bristle, Fearsville, Hippo, Krypton, Mud Lick, Monkeys Eyebrow, Pig, and Raccoon.

Bald Knob (guess they licked it too much?), Chicken Bristle, Fearsville, Hippo, Krypton (say hi to Superman’s parents for us!), Mud Lick, Monkeys Eyebrow, Pig, and Raccoon.

LOUISIANA

Uneedus is the settlement site of the Lake Superior Piling Company. Their corporate slogan was “You need us.”  Residents founded another farm community nearby and called it Weneedu.

MAINE

Burnt Porcupine is an island off the coast of Maine.  Located near Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, Burnt Porcupine has nearby sister islands with equally intriguing names: Bald Porcupine, Long Porcupine, and Sheep Porcupine.

MARYLAND

Boring, Maryland. Enough said.

MASSACHUSETTS

Belchertown wasn’t named for the aftermath of a particularly gassy meal. It’s named after Jonathan Belcher, a colonial governor of Massachusetts.

MICHIGAN

Hell is 15 miles northwest of Ann Arbor. In the 1830s, the town settler, George Reeves, traded homemade whiskey to local farmers for grain. The farmer’s wives said “He’s gone to hell again.”

MINNESOTA

Nimrod, Minnesota is full of nimrods. In the book of Genesis, Nimrod is described as “a mighty hunter before the Lord” and is credited with overseeing the construction of the Tower of Babel.

MISSISSIPPI

Hot Coffee is marked as the midpoint between Natchez, Mississippi, and Mobile, Alabama. A late 1800s inn was erected and capitalized on the spring water, molasses and New Orleans beans used to make hot coffee for weary travelers.

MISSOURI

Although Uranus was our favorite spot in Missouri, Tightwad has a cool name too. There’s also a Cooter and a Licking.

MONTANA

Pray, Montana. And they do. But the town of Pray, Montana, was named for then-state representative Charles Nelson Pray in 1907.

NEBRASKA

Magnet, Nebraska was named by settler B.E. Smith in 1893.

NEVADA

Jiggs, Nevada is about 30 miles south of Elko. It’s named after a top hat-wearing, cigar smoking Irish-American protagonist from an old comic strip Bringing Up Father. A women’s organization in town dubbed itself Maggie’s Club after the character’s wife.

Candy Kitchen lies between Zuni and Navajo reservations in western New Mexico.  A local moonshine distiller needed a front to hide his illicit operations during Prohibition. To secure the sugar necessary to concoct barrels of hooch, the moonshiner established a confectionery that produced pinion nut candy on the side. Just 85 miles away is Pie Town.

NEW YORK

Neversink, New York is currently sunk under about 175 feet of water. Named for the Neversink River, the longest tributary of the Delaware River, the city of 2000 was a Catskill towns flooded in the 1950s to create reservoirs that would provide water to New York City. It relocated afterwards. But another town, Bittersweet, remains underwater. On land, are towns called Coxsackie and Butternuts.

NORTH CAROLINA

Why not Why Not? That’s the named settled upon when the post office was established in 1860. If not, try Lizard Lick, NC.

NORTH DAKOTA

Cannon Ball, North Dakota gets its name from geological curiosities called concretions. There’s also Zap.

OHIO

Knockemstiff, Ohio. Bar brawls and street fights during moonshine days, prompted the advice from a preacher. When asked by a woman on how to keep her cheating husband home and faithful, the preacher responded simply: “Knock ‘em stiff.” Take that advice however you want.

OKLAHOMA

Gene Autry, Oklahoma was named after the singing cowboy who purchased a 1200-acre ranch nearby that he would turn into the headquarters of his Flying A Ranch Rodeo. On November 16, 1941, the town of Berwyn officially became Gene Autry, Oklahoma. It’s home to a museum and film festival in his honor.

RHODE ISLAND

Woonsocket is the sixth largest city in Rhode Island ands was originally known as la ville la plus française aux États-Unis, which translates to “the most French city in the United States.”

SOUTH CAROLINA

Ketchuptown got its name from a country store built by Herbert Small in 1927 were locals went to “catch up” on news and gossip.

SOUTH DAKOTA

Mud Butte was named for a nearby barren butte. In 1981, archeologists digging around unearthed the sixth Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton ever discovered, after a local rancher finally got around to calling a museum about the dinosaur bones he’d seen digging out of a cliff on his property for years.

TENNESSEE

Difficult, Tennessee isn’t too hard to remember.

TEXAS

Muleshoe, Happy, Dime Box, Gun Barrel City, Cut and Shoot, Telephone, Jot ’em Down, Loco, and Comfort were among my favorite town names in Texas until I came upon Ding Dong.  Located in Bell County, the community was named after its founders, the Bell family.

UTAH

Mexican Hat, Utah, has a 60-foot-wide, sombrero-shaped rock formation on the northeast side of town.

SATANS KINGDOM

Satans Kingdom, Vermont is not the only state with that town name. Massachusetts and Connecticut does too. The land was said to be rocky and void of fertile soil.

WASHINGTON

Humptulips was a major logging center. The name comes from a local Native American word meaning “hard to pole.” Native Americans used to canoe by propelling themselves along with poles.

WYOMING

Chugwater, Wyoming was home of the Mandan tribe, whose chief was reportedly injured during a buffalo hunt and sent his son to lead the hunting party in his place. According to Chugwater’s website, the son determined that the easiest way to kill the buffalo was to drive them off the local chalk cliffs. “The word ‘chug,’” the town’s website notes, “is said to describe the noise that the buffalo or the falling chalk made when it hit the ground or fell into the water under the bluff, depending on which version of the legend you wish to believe. Indians began to call the area ‘water at the place where the buffalo chug.’”
