2 Republicans voting with Democrats on ‘LGBTQIA+’ and abortion

Saturday, June 3, 2023, 10:25 am | Randy Thomasson
This year in the California Assembly, “Republicans” Greg Wallis and Juan Alanis repeatedly voted to push “LGBTQIA+” and baby-killing, trampling parents in the process.

June 6 update: Yesterday, Wallis and Alanis added their names as coauthors of HR 33, the “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ+) Pride Month” resolution, which then passed on a voice vote. Also joining the Democrats as a coauthor and/or voting yes were Republicans Marie Waldron in the Assembly and, for the same resolution in the State Senate (SR 33), Rosilicie Ochoa Bogh in the State Senate.

Here at the “halfway” point of the 2023 session of the California State Legislature, what have you got? Supermajority Democrats more anti-family and tyrannical than ever, and some Republicans voting like Democrats more than ever.

Who are the “Republicans In Name Only,” the “RINOs”? Let me highlight two “Republicans” who were elected last year and have only began voting on bills this year.

Greg Wallis was district director for the one of the Assembly’s most liberal “Republicans,” independent Chad Mayes, who was “termed out” last year. In 2022, Wallis ran for and won the 47th Assembly District, which includes Greater Palm Springs, Yucca Valley, Yucaipa, Highland, and Beaumont. Wallis’ district office phone number is 760-346-6342.

This year, Wallis voted yes on 13 pro-“LGBTQIA+” bills and pro-abortion bills expanding baby-killing all the more: AB 5, AB 223, AB 352, AB 443, AB 492, AB 576, AB 598, AB 659, AB 957, AB 1078, AB 1194, AB 1432, and ACA 5 (Wallis voted yes to add himself as a coauthor).

And this is despite Wallis, on his campaign website, saying he was a “leader in his church” (obviously, not a Bible-based church). Already, SaveCalifornia.com has heard from conservatives in the Coachella Valley who regret voting for Wallis and want him replaced next year.

Another new “Republican” assemblyman who’s voting for the “LGBTQIA+” agenda and the baby-killing agenda is Juan Alanis of Modesto (district office phone number 209-521-2201). Alanis, who portrays himself as a family man, is apparently personally pro-abortion and learned pro-“LGBTQIA+” political-correctness during his 27-year law enforcement career.

Last year, Alanis ran for and won the 22nd Assembly District, which includes Modesto, Turlock, Denair, Patterson, and Newman. This year, Alanis voted yes on 7 pro-“LGBTQIA+” bills and pro-abortion bills: AB 5, AB 352, AB 443, AB 492, AB 598, AB 1194, and AB 1432.

Despite the conservative district, Alanis seems not to be hiding his pro-“LGBTQIA+” alliance. In December, he rubbed shoulders with and spoke to a very pro-“LGBTQIA+” crowd at a liberal “Catholic” church.

Both Greg Wallis and Juan Alanis are redefining the Republican Party to be immoral, undependable on social issues, and even iffy on fiscal issues — destroying the Republican Party from within. This is where the phrase “Republicans In Name Only,” or RINOs, comes from. Will conservative voters put up with this?

“Then the Lord said to him, “Now you Pharisees make the outside of the cup and dish clean, but your inward part is full of greed and wickedness.”

Terrible! AB 659 pushing injurious Gardasil jabs passes Assembly

Wednesday, May 31, 2023, 9:17 pm | Randy Thomasson

Sadly, the unneeded, ineffective, harmful, anti-family Gardasil bill AB 659 passed the Democrat-controlled California State Assembly Wednesday, May 31, shortly after 11 a.m.

  • Two Republicans spoke against it: Joe Patterson and Devon Mathis
  • 51 Democrats voted yes
  • 10 Democrats abstained: David Alvarez, Sabrina Cervantes, Evan Low, Tina McKinnor, Blanca Pacheco, Sharon Quirk-Silva, James Ramos, Esmeralda Soria, Avelino Valencia, Akilah Weber (later in the day when vote changes were permitted, Alaverez, Cervantes, Low, McKinnor, Ramos, Soria, and Valencia changed their votes to “yes”)
  • 1 Republican voted yes: Greg Wallis
  • 5 Republicans abstained: Phillip Chen, Laurie Davies, Diane Dixon, James Gallagher, Tom Lackey (later in the day, when vote changes were permitted, Chen and Gallagher changed their votes to “no”)

ALL 18 Republicans should have stood and spoke against this dangerous bill, which if signed into law, will injure many children and young adults. Sadly, the foolish and deceptive “deal” of early April between the AB 659’s author and the “Freedom Angels” to replace the official “mandate” with unofficial dishonesty, coercion, and threats was the key to pass this devilish bill in committee and advance it to the floor.

THANK YOU to all who called and who steadfastly fought against this lie-based bill this winter and spring. Sadly, Big Pharma, Big Medicine, and Big Lies were stronger.

Thanks also to the two Republicans who stood and spoke against the deceptive AB 659: Joe Patterson of Rocklin and Devon Mathis of Visalia.

To be clear, the amended AB 659 does not legally require anyone to bare their arm for a series of Gardasil shots. Yet AB 659 requires parents of every 6th grader in both “public” and private schools (including church schools) to be told:

“It is the public policy of the state that pupils are expected to be fully immunized against human papillomavirus (HPV) before admission or advancement to the 8th eighth grade level of any private or public elementary or secondary school.”

Unfortunately, this means millions of California parents (and hundreds of thousands of collegians, who AB 659 also threatens with Gardasil shots) will falsely think they must be injected or else they can’t go to school or college.

Because the Democrat-controlled State Senate is all the more likely to pass the tyrannical, deceiving AB 659, call and email Governor Gavin Newsom to urge him to veto this misleading bill: 916-445-2841 gov.ca.gov/contact

… he was talked into a flu vaccination. October 13th, Zach returned for a follow up and was talked into accepting the Gardasil and meningococcal vaccines. It was shortly after this that the first phase of his health decline began … I have watched my only child age decades within the span of less than 2 years. It has taken a year and a half later for him to finally find a group of doctors who believe he is Gardasil injured, but they do not know how to treat him.

ALERT: Kill the deceptive, harmful Gardasil bill

Tuesday, May 30, 2023, 9:34 am | Randy Thomasson

The good news is the unneeded, ineffective, harmful, anti-family Gardasil bill AB 659 did not come up for a vote all last week.

The bad news (or rather, the persistent threat) is that it could pass this week if swing-vote Democrats fear their Democrat bosses or Merck’s lobbyists more than they fear all the opposition phone calls they’ve been receiving.

So, this deadline week (bills must pass their house of origin by June 2), please keep flooding the deciding votes!

Whether you can leave one, some, or all of the voicemails, thank you!

1. Call your own state assemblymember. Find them by entering your voter address. When you leave your voicemail message, say your name and that you live in the district. Say, “The latest amendments to AB 659 make the deception even worse. You can’t say it’s not a mandate when you instruct parents that their children ‘are expected’ to ‘be fully immunized against human papillomavirus (HPV) before admission or advancement to the eighth grade level.’ Oppose this dishonest bill!”

2. Call Democrat Assemblymember Akilah Weber, an OB-GYN who abstained twice in committee on AB 659. Call 619-465-7903 or 916-319-2079, anonymously. Leave your voicemail, saying, “Thank you for not supporting AB 659. On the floor, please stand and speak against this misleading bill.”

3. Call the Democrats SaveCalifornia.com has identified, leaving your voicemails, anonymously, 7pm to 8am, for some or all of them. Tell these Democrats, “The latest amendments to AB 659 make the deception even worse. You can’t say it’s not a mandate when you instruct parents that their children ‘are expected’ to ‘be fully immunized against human papillomavirus (HPV) before admission or advancement to the eighth grade level.’ Defeat this misleading, dishonest bill!”

In February 2013, my healthy, active, academically gifted daughter received the 2nd of three recommended HPV-4 (Gardasil) injections. Within a week, she developed cold symptoms and a barking cough. I did not think it was related to the vaccine. How could a vaccine cause a cold? She went on to develop repeated lung spasms. After her third injection, she experienced dizzy spells, loss of balance, weakness, anxiety, ear pain, abdominal pain, and nausea. I was never an “anti-vaxxer” (if I were, I wouldn’t have agreed to the HPV vaccine) so. I never even associated her new symptoms with Gardasil … It was only when another mom contacted me via social media, asking, “Has your daughter had the Gardasil shot, by any chance?” that I began to put the pieces together. To be honest, I thought she was crazy at first. But I started reading the stories of other young people who have been injured by Gardasil. Their stories are so similar to Caitlin’s. Now, that same mother’s intuition which made me question her pediatrician before consenting to the Gardasil injections tells me that my child has been devastatingly injured by Gardasil. Today, my brilliant daughter has bouts of brain fog and she can’t piece together thoughts.
