Kill SB 866: New action steps

Thursday, June 16, 2022, 4:48 pm | Randy Thomasson
Above is a screenshot of the June 16 Assembly floor vote to amend SB 866 by raising minimum age of “consent” from 12 to 15. Thirty-three Democrats initially voted “aye” (yes) to amend SB 866 to make it easier to pass (then five more Democrats added on, bringing the “ayes” to 38). Eighteen out of 19 Republicans voted “no” (but Republican Jordan Cunningham added his “no” vote later) and 3 Democrats voted “no” (Sharon Quirk-Silva, James Ramos, Carlos Villapudua). Abstaining were independent Chad Mayes and 22 Democrats (of these, five ultimately voted “aye” (yes) to amend SB 866: Wendy Carrillo, Sabrina Cervantes, Eduardo Garcia, Adrin Nazarian, Robert Rivas).

UDPATE JUNE 20, 2022: Despite gaining another Democrat member (there are now 60 Democrats in the 80-member California State Assembly), the amended SB 866 was skipped over in Monday’s floor session. BIG THANKS to all who KEPT CALLING. The amended bill has failed its 1st test, but please keep calling below:

TAKE QUICK ACTION. Seize this momentum to kill the radical anti-parent bill SB 866. Realize that SB 866’s unconstitutional, immoral, anti-family Democrat author, Scott Wiener of San Francisco, only amended his bill because he DID NOT HAVE THE VOTES to pass it. This means your phone calls and more have worked!

Scroll down for your new action steps (effective June 16, 2022)

Understand: The amended bill is still bad, because raising the age of “consent” to any and every vaccine from 12 years old in the original bill to 15 years old in the amended SB 866 still obliterates parental consent and informed consent. A minor is still a minor!

SB 866 is wrong because it pretends minors can give “informed consent” to vaccines without a parent’s consent. But children do not have the wisdom, maturity, and brain development to accurately determine risks, including whether they could suffer an adverse reaction from an injection.

Realize this: SB 866 flies in the face of numerous adults-only laws. For example, in California, you have to be 18 years or older to vote, to buy a shotgun or rifle, to buy “medical marijuana,” to enter into a binding contract, to buy or sell property, to marry without parental consent, to sue or be sued, to make a will, to inherit property outright, to consent to most types of medical treatment, to join the military without parental consent, to get a job without a special work permit, to serve on a jury, to donate blood without parental consent, to become an organ donor without parental consent, to apply for credit in your own name, to get a permanent tattoo on your skin, to get your skin pierced without parental consent, to legally change your name, to play the lottery, or to gamble. To claim a child can make adult decisions endangers children.

What’s next: Officially amended on Thursday, June 16, SB 866 can be heard as soon as the Thursday, June 23 1pm Assembly floor session.

3 NEW EASY STEPS = 3 CATEGORIES OF EFFECTIVENESS

1) Call or email your own state assemblymember
2) Call deciding votes (nearly all Democrats)
3) Call Republicans and demand they speak on the floor

SCROLL DOWN FOR STEPS 1, 2, and 3 + CALL LISTS

STEP #1. Call or email YOUR OWN state assemblymember. Tell him or her “You need to oppose the amended SB 866. Children are still children and this is still a radical anti-parent bill. The law recognizes dozens of important things you can’t decide until you’re 18 or 21. SB 866 eliminates parental consent and informed consent. Stand and speak AGAINST this bad bill on the floor, and vote NO!” Click here to find your California assemblymember’s phone numbers and web form

STEP #2: Call the 31 DECIDING VOTES BELOW that we’ve identified by leaving after-hours anonymous voicemail messages (this means calling (no emailing) 7pm to 8am, and weekends).

Tell them, “Oppose the amended SB 866. Children are still children and this is still a radical anti-parent bill. The law recognizes dozens of important things you can’t decide until you’re 18 or 21. SB 866 eliminates parental consent and informed consent — vote NO.”

If your own state assemblymember is one of the 19 Assembly Republicans, demand they “Stand and speak against SB 866. Don’t ask questions of the floor jockey, but stand and speak to expose the harms of SB 866.”

Tina McKinnor 916-319-2062 and 310-412-6400: The newest assemblywoman and Democrat from the Inglewood/Venice/Hawthorne/LAX area of Los Angeles County was sworn into office on June 20.

SPECIAL REPORT: Why medical tyranny and infanticide bills passed

Friday, May 27, 2022, 12:05 pm | Randy Thomasson

If you haven’t heard yet, on May 26, the Democrats that rule the California State Assembly powered through Covid medical tyranny bills AB 2098 and AB 1797 and the infanticide legalization bill AB 2223.

AB 2098 revokes licenses of doctors that counsel patients against the “Covid vaccine”

AB 1797 puts Californians into a database, segregating them by “Covid vaccine” status

AB 2223 prohibits law enforcement from investigating infant deaths

That was the worst thing of all. But the second worst was zero Republicans spoke against any of these bad bills. All 19 of them refused to speak to expose these bills’ great harms.

And I have to tell you, based on other times this week that Assembly Republicans vigorously spoke out (such as on protecting Central Valley water), I believe these medical tyranny bills and infanticide bill could have been defeated if exposed in a verbal floor fight.

See the deceitful passage of AB 2223 where nobody spoke to expose its true effect

If you were in this fight, you have my sincere thanks and admiration for calling Sacramento in an effort to stop these horrific bills. We had to try, because last year a vaccine passport bill and a forced jab bill were pulled for lack of support. And this year, several Covid tyranny bills have already been dropped by their authors.

The votes
Despite no Assembly floor fight exposing how bad these 3 bills are, the initial votes were still close. With our goal of denying these bills a majority vote (41 yes votes), we successfully pulled off more than a dozen Democrats; so AB 2098 was declared “passed” by just 5 votes, AB 1797 by only 2 votes, and AB 2223 by 4 votes). However, by the end of the session, votes had changed, both sides coalesced, and vote disparities increased.

See the final votes (members are allowed to change their votes by the end of the session as long as they don’t change whether the bill passed or not): AB 2098 | AB 1797 | AB 2223

The future
At this point, the only way I see to defeat these 3 awful bills is IF they’re amended in the State Senate, are sent back to the Assembly floor for concurrence votes — but this time, Republicans lovingly raise their microphones to shockingly expose and defeat these bills.

However, if AB 2098, AB 1797, and AB 2223 pass the entire California Legislature in August, and are signed by Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom, what then? I strongly believe there should be constitutional lawsuits filed against them all. Here’s why:

AB 2098 squashing medical independence on the “Covid vaccine” is an unconstitutional regulation of speech. By targeting doctors for Covid-related “misinformation or disinformation,” AB 2098 unconstitutionally targets professional speech. As the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals noted in Pickup v. Brown (2013), “…doctor-patient communications about medical treatment receive substantial First Amendment protection.” 

The appellate court also stated, “where a professional is engaged in a public dialogue, First Amendment protection is at its greatest. Thus, for example, a doctor who publicly advocates a treatment that the medical establishment considers outside the mainstream, or even dangerous, is entitled to robust protection under the First Amendment—just as any person is.” 

The author of AB 2098 knows his bill might be unconstitutional: On April 20, he amended AB 2098 to make its provisions “severable … if any provision of this act or its application is held invalid.”

AB 1797 segregating Californians by vaccine status, race and ethnicity, violates Californians’ privacy rights by eliminating confidentiality. 
By requiring, as the Legislative Counsel’s Digest of AB 1797 describes, “health care providers and other agencies, including schools, childcare facilities, family childcare homes, and county human services agencies to disclose the specified immunization information,” this bill violates the constitutional privacy rights of many Californians.

In 1972, California voters overwhelmingly added “privacy” to the list of “inalienable rights” guaranteed by Article 1, Section 1 of the California Constitution. In 1975, the California Supreme Court, in White v. Davis, relied on California’s newly-affirmed constitutional right of privacy to prevent police officers from posing as college students and gathering intelligence on what is said in the classroom when the intelligence gathered bore no relation to any suspected illegal activity.

As the court wrote: Moreover, the surveillance alleged in the complaint also constitutes a prima facie violation of the explicit “right of privacy” recently added to our state Constitution. As we point out, a principal aim of the constitutional provision is to limit the infringement upon personal privacy arising from the government’s increasing collection and retention of data relating to all facets of an individual’s life. 

By violating Californians’ medical privacy – in the classroom and otherwise – AB 1797 is in direct conflict with the California Constitution.

AB 2223 robs already-born babies of their constitutional guarantee of equal protection of the laws. 
Since this isn’t about abortion, but infanticide — which is murder — we can foresee a federal constitutional lawsuit demanding the Fourteenth Amendment’s guarantee that “nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” If should be tried, if there’s indeed a pro-life majority at the U.S. Supreme Court.

Thank you again for fighting these awful bills through your phone calls or by donating to SaveCalifornia.com. We had to try, and I’m grateful you did your part. But most Assembly Democrats shirked their constitutional pledges and all the Republicans went mute.

Open your mouth for the speechless,
In the cause of all who are appointed to die.
Proverbs 31:8

If you faint in the day of adversity,
Your strength is small.
Deliver those who are drawn toward death,
And hold back those stumbling to the slaughter.
Proverbs 24:10-11

URGENT ALERT: Call Sacramento to oppose medical tyranny and infanticide

Friday, May 20, 2022, 7:50 am | Randy Thomasson

UPDATE: Wednesday, May 25 @ 7pm: AB 2098 has been skipped over for 4 Assembly floor sessions in a row. But AB 2098, AB 1797’s statewide vaccine database and AB 2223 functionally legalizing infanticide can all come up for Assembly floor votes on Thursday, May 26. So please leave anonymous messages TONIGHT (between 8pm and 7am) for the 28 deciding votes (scroll down to see list of who to call and what to say).

Updated Wednesday, May 25 @ 7pm:
This means this horrible bill revoking the licenses of honest, caring doctors — along with AB 1797’s statewide vaccine database and AB 2223 functionally permitting infanticide — will be on the Assembly floor May 26 and 27 (Friday, May 27 is the final week to pass bills in their house of origin).

Why is SaveCalifornia.com focusing on the State Assembly, not the State Senate? The 80-member California State Assembly has two-year terms, most incumbents are running for re-election, they’re younger, closer to their communities, and less “crusty” and less “owned” by wealthy special interests — and there’s also two vacant Democrat seats.

This is why, last August, our side successfully lobbied to defeat two awful bills on the Assembly floor — one requiring jabs and one requiring passports. We need more victories this month, then again in August for the worst Senate bills — all on the Assembly floor.

With this in mind, please take renewed action!

STEP #1:

Wednesday, May 25 and Thursday, May 26, please call again to your own state assemblymember’s State Capitol office. Find yours here.

And please share this alert with your family members and friends so they can make calls too. Also, please ask doctors you know who support medical freedom to call their own assemblymember and even the deciding votes to oppose how AB 2098 would trample medical independence and threaten licenses of careful, evidence-based physicians and surgeons. Their authoritative voices will be remembered and carry weight against the Big-Pharma-owned California Medical Association, which is sponsoring AB 2098.

Use these talking points to urge your own state assemblymember to oppose AB 2098, AB 1797, and AB 2223:

AB 2098 (Low): “Support medical independence. Oppose AB 2098, which would result in the revocation of licenses of good doctors who think outside the box. AB 2098 is unfair and wrong — oppose it.”

AB 1797 (Weber): “Support an individual’s choice of medical treatment. Oppose AB 1797, which would set up a vaccine database that would discriminate against and segregate conscientious Californians who don’t want a particular injection. Do not track me or my family, whether we want a particular shot or not. Vote no on AB 1797.”

AB 2223 (Wicks) as amended May 19, 2022: “Protect the lives of babies, whether they’re an hour, day, week, or year old. Oppose AB 2223, which would make law enforcement look the other way when an infant dies and it’s claimed the death was from ’causes that occurred in utero.’ By prohibiting law enforcement investigations of ‘perinatal death’ due to a subjective and overly-broad phrase, AB 2223 would permit killings of newborns up to year after birth. Vote no on this infanticide bill.”

(See more on these and other bad bills at the SaveCalifornia.com Legislation Center)

STEP #2:

If you’re a modern-day patriot, this 30-minute task is for you: It is especially effective for you to call the Assembly floor votes to oppose all 3 bills. We highly recommend you only leave anonymous after-hours voicemails, during the evening, night, and weekend.

Again, use our talking points above to describe why all 3 bills are wrong.
SaveCalifornia.com believes since medical “mandates” are controversial, since fear of the China virus has significantly diminished, and since this is an election year where most California assemblymembers are running, both AB 2098 and AB 1797 — and AB 2223, the infanticide bill — can be stopped if you help flood Sacramento with opposition calls.

We’ve identified 28 deciding votes on these 3 bills on the floor of the 80-seat California State Assembly, which currently has 78 members and two vacancies. If none of the 19 Republicans nor at least 19 of the 28 deciding votes do not support these inhuman bills, they’ll be defeated for lack of 41 minimum votes to pass bills by the May 27 deadline.

Important to know: Unless you see your own assemblymember on this list below, please remain anonymous, so your calls will have impact and not be “trashed” (the Democrat legislators’ modus operandi is to disregard every message not from their own constituents). By leaving anonymous voicemails only, legislators’ staff cannot reliably “trash” your calls, and you’ll “mix” in and be part of the flood of opposition calls.

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Ephesians 6:10-13
