November 16 Speaker: Sarah Anderson

orders and being censured by the Party before resigning in September to do
what she does best-manage primary races in El Paso County and across the

Republican Parties.

Something to think about
El Paso County Republicans,
Madison Hamilton <> asks that you DO
Norquist is no friend of Israel or our party. It is a shame that Chairman
Eli Bremer would sully the name of one of our great Republican presidents by
hosting this person. Please do not contribute to the local party by
attending this event. Ask for a refund if you have already paid. Send a
message to Chairman Bremer and Norquist that our party does not support
ideologies that seek the destruction of our civil liberties and the freedom
of religion.
From Pamela Geller's "Grover Norquist's Jihad":
"Grover Norquist's ties to Islamic supremacists and jihadists have been
known for years. He and his Palestinian wife, Samah Alrayyes -- who was
director of communications for his Islamic Free Market Institute until they
married in 2005 -- are very active in "Muslim outreach." Just six weeks
after 9/11, The New Republic ran an exposé explaining how Norquist arranged
for George W. Bush to meet with fifteen Islamic supremacists at the White
House on September 26, 2001 -- to show how Muslims rejected terrorism."
Below are some links illustrating the facts concerning Grover Norquist:

January 18 Speaker: Lu Busse

Lu Busse, Member of The 9-12 Project Advisory Board (national), has a
Master's degree from Northwestern University in Illinois and worked as an
allied medical professional for 30 years. Lu describes her most rewarding
professional experience as the two decades she worked with cochlear implant
recipients along with their families, surgeons, and audiologists.
As president of a small homeowner's association, Lu persuaded over 2/3 of
the property owners to vote for dissolution after the Colorado General
Assembly passed an onerous new law - her personal victory in reducing
governmental control on individuals.

After advocating for some political issues and candidates over the years,
introduction of TARP I legislation in fall of 2008 motivated her to work
toward restoring our Republic and its Constitution for all generations. Lu
joined The 9/12 Project in March 2009 and was elected Chair of its Colorado
leadership team 3 months later. She helped found The 9/12 Project Colorado

Lu was appointed to the national 9/12 Project Advisory Board in February
2010 and currently is its state coordinator for Colorado. Her 6-year-old
grandson and 3-year-old granddaughter inspire and motivate her to volunteer
numerous hours per week to The 9/12 Project and its activities.
