NewsMax: 'Rocky Mountain Heist' Documentary Shows How Colorado Turned Blue

A new documentary produced by Citizens United and hosted by conservative blogger Michelle Malkin says that a secretive group of wealthy left-leaning activists met behind closed doors to take over the once-red state of Colorado, all the while publicly calling for "transparency" in elections.

And they have their eyes on the rest of the country, Malkin said Tuesday on Fox News Channel's "The Kelly File."

"What happened here in Colorado can happen in the rest of the country," Malkin said.

Daily Caller: Michelle Malkin - Liberal Billionaires Created A ‘Voter Fraud Frankenstein’

Conservative blogger Michelle Malkin appeared on Fox’s “The Kelly File” Tuesday and warned about a “cabal” of wealthy liberals trying to steal elections in her home state of Colorado by creating a “Voter Fraud Frankenstein,” slamming them for their “hypocrisy.”

Malkin made the comments while hyping her new Citizens United documentary Rocky Mountain Heist exposing how a small group of wealthy liberals took over Colorado politics. ”I’ve been a resident here of Colorado now for six years, and I didn’t know the story about how this cabal of wealthy, liberal, progressive billionaires and millionaires meticulously planned to take over a once red, red meat state and turn it blue…”

Denver Post: Citizens United given go-ahead to run ads for "Rocky Mountain Heist"

Citizens United, the conservative group behind the new film “Rocky Mountain Heist,” can run ads promoting the movie, but still risk answering for it in court, the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office said.

Any person or group could file a complaint alleging the advertisements are election-time attack ads, not a means of reporting news, Deputy Secretary of State Suzanne Staiert told Citizens United in an advisory opinion.

Citizens United announced Sunday it intends to spend $170,000 on TV ads and another $40,000 for online promotions of the documentary about how liberals have gained ground in Colorado between now and the Nov. 4 election.

Michelle Malkin: Who's Afraid of 'Rocky Mountain Heist'?

Free at last! I'm silent no more. Now, the story can be told.

Democrats here in my adopted state of Colorado did not want the new political documentary I hosted to see the light of day. They lost. This week, the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals issued an emergency injunction declaring that our movie deserved the same free-speech rights as a "traditional" (translation: old-guard liberal) news organization.

"Rocky Mountain Heist," produced by David Bossie's Citizens United and directed by Jason Killian Meath, tells the story of how a wealthy quartet of liberal millionaires and billionaires in Colorado -- known as the "Gang of Four" -- took over the once-red state of Colorado in the course of a decade.

The Washington Times: EDITORIAL: Defending political free speech

Urgency is on the minds of judges on a panel of the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, too. The court issued an emergency injunction enabling Citizens United, a conservative group, to broadcast a documentary critical of several prominent Colorado Democrats.

Under Colorado law, only news organizations are allowed to criticize politicians without falling under the strict financial regulations that apply to political groups. That gives the advantage to The Denver Post, which usually endorses Democratic candidates, and keeps competitors out of the fray. Citizens United produced a documentary, “Rocky Mountain Heist,” to show how millionaires invested their cash to paint blue a state that had once been reliably red. Gov. John Hickenlooper and Sen. Mark Udall, both Democrats, are running for re-election.

The appellate judges said Citizens United has the same free-speech rights as a news organization. “The Colorado Secretary of State shall treat Citizens United in its capacity as a producer and distributor of films the same as a broadcast facility or publisher of a print periodical for purposes of the exemptions from the reporting and disclosure requirements of Colorado election law … .” the court said.

The Denver Post: Citizens United ready to air "Rocky Mountain Heist"


Here is your first look at “Rocky Mountain Heist,” the movie about how the political right thinks the political left took control of Colorado. The documentary will be available on TV in a matter of days, and a website for it, www.rockymountainheist.com, went live this afternoon.

Citizens United, the conservative group that brought the landmark campaign finance case to the U.S. Supreme Court in 2010, won the right to put out the movie before the Nov. 4 election without disclosing its financial backers from a federal appeals court in Denver this week. The Virginia-based non-profit successfully argued it deserved the same protections as other media sources and shouldn’t have to adhere to state campaign finance rules on electioneering.

The trailer gives a glimpse of a lot of familiar conservative faces from Colorado politics: former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo, a two-time candidate for governor; Weld County District Attorney Ken Buck, who’s running for Congress this year; Jon Caldara, the president of the Independence Institute; and Laura Carno, a Republican strategist and founder of the local nonprofit I Am Created Equal.

ABC News: Citizens United Doesn't Have to Show Film's Donors

A federal appeals court has ruled that a conservative group can air a movie it has produced about Colorado politics without disclosing its financers.

The Denver Post reports ( http://dpo.st/ZYudUS ) the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals' 3-0 ruling released Tuesday allows Virginia-based Citizens United to move forward with its film, "Rocky Mountain Heist." The movie is about people the group says have influenced Colorado's political swing to the left over the past decade.

Citizens United, which won the federal landmark case about campaign finance disclosure in 2010, sued after Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler said the movie fell under state campaign finance laws. A federal judge in September agreed the movie was electioneering that required disclosure.
