Another Busy Weekend for Clear The Bench Colorado
Another busy weekend for Clear The Bench Colorado – Director Matt Arnold made multiple radio appearances, including the first national exposure for the grassroots movement to restore accountability to the Colorado judiciary (and set an example for defending the rule of law nationwide…) and appeared at several events as well.
The weekend wrapped up (well, the official part of it anyway – the Clear The Bench Colorado crew enjoyed watching the Broncos defeat the Browns, 27-6, on Sunday) with an appearance at Saturday’s Save Our Constitution rally at the Capitol building. Although not among the speakers at the event, Clear The Bench Colorado was mentioned by more than one person at the podium, and CTBC Director Matt Arnold “worked the crowd” and spoke to numerous individuals “one-on-one” while handing out information about the judicial accountability movement.
The highlight of the weekend was, without a doubt, the Clear The Bench Colorado national radio debut on the Hugh Hewitt show, broadcast live from Denver. Nationally syndicated talk show host and commentator Hugh Hewitt was in town for multiple events (including a debate on healthcare reform with Paul Campos on Thursday evening) but capped his visit (I’m sure he felt that the Broncos drubbing of the Browns on Sunday was NOT the highlight of his stay) with Friday’s broadcast.
Although the actual interview took up only one segment of the show’s first hour (beginning at about 24:30 into this podcast of the show), Hugh mentioned Clear The Bench Colorado at several points during the show, including our Facebook presence (“Clear The Bench Colorado” fan page and Facebook group), Twitter feed (http://www.twitter.com/ClearTheBenchCO) and, last not least, the critically-important financial contribution link. Most importantly, Hugh lent his support to CTBC’s quest to restore accountability to the Colorado judiciary, nowhere better expressed than in his statement that:
“I could have had any Colorado politician that I want today” on the show (specifically listing gubernatorial candidates Scott McInnis and Josh Penry, Senate candidate Ryan Frazier, and 4th Congressional district candidate Tom Lucero) “but of all those people… I asked Matt Arnold to come on, because you’re not looking for office, you’re looking to change things…” (Podcast, about 25:10)
Join Clear The Bench Colorado in “changing things” – restore accountability to the Colorado judiciary by exercising YOUR RIGHT to vote “NO” on retaining the four unjust justices of the Mullarkey Majority (Justices Michael Bender, Alex Martinez, Nancy Rice, and Chief Justice Mary Mullarkey) who need YOUR approval to continue taking away your rights: your right to vote on tax increases, your right to defend your homes and business from seizure by rapacious governments, and your right to enjoy the benefits of the rule of law, not rule by activist, agenda-driven “justices.” Support Clear The Bench Colorado with your voice (Sound Off!), your contributions, and your “NO” vote to retain unjust justices in 2010!
