At the State Capitol protesting the tyrannical AB 2943

Tuesday, June 12, 2018, 7:23 pm | Randy Thomasson


It was great to see several hundred people who came to California’s State Capitol on June 12 to protest AB 2943. It was another rare opportunity for people of faith to see the evil of the Democrat-dominated State Legislature, and to exercise their love for others.

As you know, the tyrannical AB 2943, authored by perverse Democrats, would prohibit counseling for anyone who wants out of homosexuality or transsexuality, and would threaten religious entities if they sold a book or DVD or tickets to an event about helping people escape out of the sexual bondage of homosexuality or transsexuality.

In committee, I stood in a long line of opponents to AB 2943 and told the committee and the bill’s main author, homosexual activist Democrat Evan Low, that “We oppose this bill that discriminates against and denies ‘LGBT’ people’s personal rights to seek self-improvement.”

Earlier, I had given a powerful article to the two Republican senators on the committee, through their staffers and the sergeant-at-arms. The article is called 4 Reasons Even Liberals Should Oppose California’s Gay Therapy Ban. On a post-it note to the two senators, I asked them to hand the article to the five Democrats who sit with them on the committee.

What’s more, in a news advisory prior to the hearing, I told the media that “AB 2943 unfairly discriminates against gays and lesbians whose ‘sexual orientation’ is ‘fluid’ and who want a difference in their lives. Don’t deny people their basic right to choose self-improvement. AB 2943 is anti-choice, anti-free speech, and anti-religious freedom. Every liberty-loving person should oppose this un-American bill.”

At the same time AB 2943 was being heard, so was another horrible bill from the Democrats. SB 320 would require CSU and UC campuses to issue abortion pills to young women (hurting the woman and killing the baby). I joined others who spoke out, saying, “SB 320 lacks medical safeguards for inducing chemical abortions, which often involve negative side effects. This bill is pushing an unfunded liability upon our state colleges and universities.”

Now for the bottom line. I believe these awful Democrat bills, and their other bad bills, have a very high chance of passing the Democrat-controlled California Legislature and going to Governor Jerry Brown. The Democrat legislators don’t care how many people oppose the tyrannical “LGBT” agenda — because they support it. And the Democrats don’t care how many people oppose abortion — because they love it.

Therefore, one of the very best things you can do this election season is to tell your friends what the Democrat politicians are doing. Open their eyes, and you may end up changing their votes.

If AB 2943 is signed into law, there need to be well-crafted lawsuits to overturn it in federal court as the unconstitutional beast that it is. And if SB 320 becomes law, it’ll be yet another reason to keep your impressionable daughters out of CSU and UC — otherwise they could be handed dangerous abortion pills.

Yes, we must be faithful and we must try at every opportunity to defeat evil. If you wish, please leave a message for Jerry Brown. In two separate calls, urge him to veto AB 2943 and SB 320. You can call (916) 445-2841 Monday through Friday, 9 to 5.

not because of the people who are evil,
but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.”

Please do SOMETHING to give value to babies

Wednesday, January 17, 2018, 5:18 pm | Randy Thomasson


Given the irrefutable science of 3D and 4D ultrasound, how can anyone say that’s not a baby in the womb?

You know this, but a lot of people don’t recognize that, from the moment of conception, human beings exist and have incalculable worth.

They don’t think deeply about the fact that babies in ultrasound photos, at any stage of pregnancy, are the same human being growing since conception. Yet this is the miracle of reproduction.

Since babies are being killed in or near your community, please do SOMETHING to stand against the atrocity of abortion this week. For if you don’t have a fundamental right to life, you don’t have any rights at all, do you?

Monday, January 22 is the 45th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, which unconstitutionally legalized abortion through all 9 months of pregnancy for any reason. It’s estimated that 60 million preborn babies have been slaughtered so far.

Now is your time to easily sensitize others with pro-life facts. You can share information on your own social media. You can attend a pro-life event. And you can get into the secular media. But at least do 1 thing to give value to babies in the womb.

We were all in the womb once. Please do SOMETHING against abortion this week:

1. Friends: Share this alert via email, Facebook, Twitter, etc. to all on your list. Please also consider sharing these amazing videos on SaveCalifornia.com’s YouTube page.

2. Events: Attend a public pro-life event near you — just enter your zip code. And here are the three biggest walks for life, in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego.

3. Media: Perhaps the most effective thing you can do to change minds is to be published in the media. You can influence thousands this way. This means writing a quick letter-to-the-editor of your local newspaper. It also means posting factual and logical pro-life comments on abortion-related news stories you find on the web.

Don’t let this information overwhelm you. Just resolve to do SOMETHING this week to make preborn children valuable and visible to people young and old, who need to know the truth. By doing so, you’ll be manifesting God’s love to save innocent lives.

15 Californians die from mudslides caused by Democrat negligence

Wednesday, January 10, 2018, 4:04 pm | Randy Thomasson


By now you’ve probably heard about at least 15 Californians killed (latest is 19 people dead) by rocks and mud that slid down from the fire-ravaged, denuded Santa Ynez Mountains above Montecito, just south of Santa Barbara. True compassion will motivate us to protect other Californians by doing our utmost to prevent more death and destruction.

Of course, the mudslides wouldn’t have happened except for the huge “Thomas Fire” above Montecito, which was one of dozens of cataclysmic wildfires in California in December.

Stop and realize there were 9,133 separate wildfires in California in 2017. That official number is amazing and wholly unacceptable. Easily more than 10,000 structures wiped out. None of these fires were caused by lighting, were they? Nearly all were man-made.

Oh, you’ll see “cause unknown” in the official reports, and you’ll suspect that downed power lines caused the devastating “Tubbs Fires” in Santa Rosa in October. There’s also suspicion that the “Creek Fire” above Sylmar was sparked by “a snapped line on a high-voltage transmission tower.”

Yet the much-videoed “Skirball Fire” near Bel Air was determined by L.A. County’s arson unit to be neglectful cooking at a “homeless encampment.” So that’s man-made. If we subtract 2 fires caused by power lines and 1 fire caused by a neglectful transient, there are still 9,131 separate wildfires unaccounted for! All these wildfires in 2017 — who or what caused them?

I say it’s time to admire Smokey the Bear and remind people, “Remember, only you can prevent forest fires.” Indeed, it’s high time for both Left and Right in California to demand that the ruling Democrat prevent wildfires. Don’t tolerate Jerry Brown and Democrat legislators neglectfully blaming “climate change” instead of caring for California families!

Here are ideas for new laws that could help:

1. Impose new stiff penalties, including prison time, for people who cause wildfires either through neglect or pyromania. Since uncaring transients and evil boys are likely perpetrators of most of the California wildfires, every government “homeless” agency needs to hand pamphlets to every transient they see and every government school must drum into the heads of children why we need to “love our neighbor” and why setting fires is wrong. Church schools can and should add fear of God and that God is watching.

2. Purchase many more planes and helicopters that can fight wildfires better and faster. This can be done using existing funds, but liberals are loathe to cut government waste, aren’t they? Republican state legislators should introduce bills cutting waste, fraud, and abuse and spend the saved money on a new wildfire “air force” for California. Even if the ruling Democrats kill these Republican bills, the Republicans could publicly pressure the Democrats to come up with their own bill to buy more planes and copters and station them in high-risk areas of the state.

3. Pass a new law requiring a wide-enough barrier between hillside homes and wild brush to stop the spread of flames and sparks. Since wind-borne sparks can jump freeways, the barrier needs to be at least that wide. A wide-enough width must be studied, because people and their property matter more than weeds and wildbrush. Any Democrat politician who bows to opposition environmental groups on this is not a “public servant.”

Any other ideas? Bottom line, Californians of all political stripes need to demand that our elected officials PREVENT wildfires in the future, and stop irresponsibly excusing themselves because the official fire report reads “cause unknown.”

As many as 90 percent of wildland fires in the United States are caused by humans. Some human-caused fires result from campfires left unattended, the burning of debris, negligently discarded cigarettes and intentional acts of arson. The remaining 10 percent are started by lightning or lava.
