Dynamic speaker Derrick Wilburn talks about “Truth Transcending Color” in Estes Park, Saturday, October 25
Derrick Wilburn first made political waves when he started American Conservatives of Color. He has since become a tidal wave, rolling through the country in media and motivational speaking engagements. Now he comes to Estes Park to talk about Ethnic Minority Outreach in his “Truth Transcends Color” address. Not just a speech, Derrick will inspire and rally his audience.
This powerful free event takes place on Saturday, October 25th at 1:00 p.m. at Cheesy Lees Restaurant in the historic Elkhorn Lodge (west Elkhorn Avenue). Get there early, order a pizza, kick back and be inspired as Derrick talks about why he’s a black conservative, something some say is mutually exclusive.
Derrick is fresh off a rally in Florida with Colonel Allen West. He will talk about his mission to bridge the gap between conservative political issues and ethnic minorities in the USA. Yes, he’s black, and yes, he’s conservative. He discusses why the current administration has not helped minority communities, and if there is a better way.
A fresh face in the world of politics, Derrick is the founder, President and Chairman of the Board of the Rocky Mountain Black Conservatives, American Conservatives of Color, and BlackandConservative.com.

Judicial Watch: Obama to Admit Non-Citizens for Ebola Treatment
Friday, October 17, 2014 04:00 PM
The government watchdog group Judicial Watch alleged Friday the Obama administration is formulating plans to admit Ebola-infected non-U.S. citizens into the United States for treatment.
The group, which cited one unidentified source, said the administration would aim to bring Ebola patients into the United States for treatment within the first days of diagnosis, and that it’s not clear who’d pay either for the transportation or treatment.
The group alleged the plan for treatment includes special waivers of laws and regulations that ban the admission of non-citizens with a communicable disease; Judicial Watch cited its source saying the administration has not told Congress about the plan.
“The source is concerned that the proposal is illegal; endangers the public health and welfare; and should require the approval of Congress,” Judicial Watch stated.
President Barack Obama has made it clear he opposes any travel bans to stop Ebola spreading from West Africa into the United States, noting Thursday “history shows that there is a likelihood of increased avoidance (that could lead to) more cases rather than less,” Fox News reports.
“The problem is that — in all the discussions that I’ve had thus far with experts in the field, experts in infectious disease … a travel ban is less effective than the measures that we are currently instituting,” Obama said.
The United States has brought American citizens back for treatment of Ebola — including Dr. Kent Brantly and a colleague who were working in Africa with Ebola patients, both recovered, and a freelance photojournalist who is currently undergoing treatment. No non-U.S. citizens, though, have been brought here for treatment.
Congressional District will square off in an October 16 public forum. Jared Polis(D) and challenger George Leing(R) will be hosted by the League of Women voters in Estes Park. The event will take place in the town board room of the Estes Park municipal building at 7 to 9 pm on Oct. 16th. Please come and support George. Remember that the Fort Collins Newspaper, The Coloradoan, has endorsed George. We can get him elected, if we all work together.
