RED ALERT: Try to stop SB 866 and other anti-parent bills

Sunday, May 8, 2022, 5:37 pm | Randy Thomasson

Please scroll down to see our State Senate floor alert for SB 866 and 3 other anti-parent bills

I understand people feeling hopeless and depressed after calling against the awful SB 866, which eliminates parental consent for any vaccine injection for their children ages 12 through 17, only to see the Democrat majority pass it in committee on May 5. 

PERSPECTIVE:

This temporary defeat actually provides great hope of eventual victory! Here’s why:

1. A hurried, Frankensteinian hearing: The Democrat Senate president pro tempore, homosexual activist Toni Atkins of San Diego, only gave permission for a hearing on SB 866 as a favor to fellow homosexual activist and SB 866 author Scott Wiener of San Francisco. The bill was already in trouble due to public opposition in an election year. But Wiener had to be satisfied, so he got his hearing. And it was an emergency, since the deadline for bills to pass their policy committees is fast approaching. And SB 866 was the only bill the Judiciary Committee scheduled that day. Bottom line, this was a hearing for a “dog of a bill” that should have never gotten a hearing.

2. Musical chairs and worried Democrats: With so many opposition phone calls, and so many of these calls from parents of vaccine-injured children (who said so), two Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee completely avoided the meeting (Anna Caballero and Bob Hertzberg). Hertzberg was strangely replaced for the day by Democrat Mike McGuire, since both websites of Hertzberg and the Senate Judiciary Committee report he’s still on the committee. Even Democrat Henry Stern left after the first half of the hearing, and then abstained from the vote. Add to this two Democrats who seem awakened to the concept of vaccine injuries. Bob Wieckowski and John Laird appeared sincerely concerned when they asked probing questions of Wiener at the hearing. If properly motivated, these two could easily abstain on SB 866 on the floor, justifying they only voted to “get it out of committee,” as some Democrat senators have done in the past.

3. Previous Democrat opposition: On the floor of the California State Senate, there are already two Democrat senators — Connie Leyva and Richard Roth — who, in 2015, voted no on SB 277, a Richard Pan bill eliminating personal belief objections to childhood vaccines. And now, because SB 866 so blatantly attacks parental rights on vaccines, it’s very likely to be opposed by this duo. Also, in 2015, Democrat senator Ben Hueso, who’s still there, abstained on SB 277 seven years ago.

In the 40-member California Senate, there are 31 Democrats and 9 Republicans. If 11 Democrats don’t support SB 866, the bill will fail. Let’s count the votes to see the potential.

Scroll down page for names/contact info of swing votes.
YOUR ACTION STEPS (now through Thursday):

Now that you know it’s plausible SB 866 can be stopped on the State Senate floor, it’s time to call your own state senator. See below how to make calls and send emails. (Also below are other anti-parent bills you can oppose.)

And if you live in any of the swing-vote districts listed below, please double your efforts to tell others you know!

Call deadline: You have until the morning of Thursday, May 12 before SB 866 could come up for a floor vote. This our chance to either defeat it on the Senate floor, or to give it such a bad reputation there that it’s easier to kill on the Assembly floor. Please seize this opportunity and share this alert with everyone you know who has basic family values!

HOW TO CONTACT YOUR OWN STATE SENATOR:

STEP #1: Find your own California state senator by entering your voting address.

STEP #2: On the screen that appears next, click the link of your state senator, which will go to his or her home page.

STEP #3: Find your state senator’s district office number or numbers by either clicking the Contact page or by scrolling to the bottom of the home page.

STEP #4: Make a phone call or send a message via their web form, identifying yourself, and telling them to strongly oppose SB 866. You could say something like, “Oppose SB 866. This unnecessary, poorly-drafted bill shatters the parent-child bond by eliminating both parental consent and informed consent for vaccinations of teens and pre-teens. Protect the increasing number of vaccine-injured children from greater harm of the coercion this bill would permit. Vote NO on SB 866.”

OTHER ANTI-PARENT BILLS TO OPPOSE:

Also consider, in the same phone call, urging your state senator to oppose these 3 other anti-parent bills. In addition to SB 866 on the Senate floor, there are 3 other anti-parent bills in the Senate:

SB 1184 permitting health insurers to disclose children’s personal information to schools, without parental consent

SB 1419 preventing parents from seeing all of their children’s medical records

SB 1479 requiring every K-12 government school, childcare center, preschool, and after school program to develop a “Covid test” plan, targeting every boy and girl for invasive testing, tracking, and quarantining.

To multiply your lobbying impact against all 4 bills — and perhaps see all four bills either stopped or wounded (passing but losing Democrat votes) — you can leave messages for your own state senator against these additional bills, saying something like: “Oppose the anti-parent bills, SB 866, SB 1184, SB 1419, and SB 1479.”

Q: When should I call and email my OWN state senator?

A: Please call anytime between now and the morning of Thursday, May 12, when the State Senate convenes at 9 a.m. and SB 866 and SB 1184 will be on third reading and eligible for a floor vote. Please do your part now, especially if your state senator is a Democrat, and especially if he or she is one of the “swing votes” identified below.

BONUS ACTION ALERT — CALL THE DECIDING VOTES: 

You may also call the list of swing votes listed below, yet we recommend you only call them anonymously on the weekend, or weekdays from 8pm to 8am. Because it’s the modus operandi of Democrat legislators to “trash” any messages from non-constituents. So, recording a voicemail without saying your name or other identifying information can definitely help, and will “mix in” in the flood of phone calls these swing-vote Democrats are receiving.

Remember, your anonymous, after-hours voicemail message should be, “Oppose the anti-parent bills, SB 866, SB 1184, SB 1419, and SB 1479.”

After you’ve made your call or calls, please share this alert with others to say we’ve got a chance and ask them to participate.
COUNT THE DECIDING VOTES ON THE CALIFORNIA SENATE FLOOR

Here are Democrat state senators who will not or might not support SB 866 on the Senate floor (in descending order from 31 total Democrat senators, with 21 votes required to pass bills):

31. Anna Caballero on May 5 avoided the SB 866 hearing and did not vote on it. Caballero represents a formerly Republican district covering the Salinas Valley, San Benito County, Merced County and parts of Stanislaus, Madera and Fresno counties (see map) Her district offices are 831-769-8084 and 209-726-5495, and here’s her web form.

30. Connie Leyva in 2015 voted no on SB 277, the infamous bill eliminating parents’ personal belief exemptions for vaccinations of their children. Leyva is currently running to be a San Bernardino County Supervisor, representing the communities of Chino, Chino Hills, Ontario, Montclair, and Upland (see map). Her state senate district offices are 909-469-1110 and 909-888-5360, and here’s her web form.

29Richard Roth in 2015 voted no on SB 277, which eliminated parents’ personal belief exemptions for vaccinations of their children. Roth represents the Riverside County communities of Corona, Norco, Jurupa Valley, Riverside, Moreno Valley, and Perris (see map). His district office is 951-680-6750, and here’s his web form.

28. Ben Hueso in 2015 abstained on SB 277, which eliminated parents’ personal belief exemptions for vaccinations of their children. Hueso represents the San Diego County communities of Chula Vista, National City, Imperial Beach, Coronado, and part of San Diego, all of Imperial County, and the southern part of Riverside County (see map). His district offices are 619-409-7690 and 760-335-3442, and here’s his web form.

27. Henry Stern on May 5 was present for the first third of the SB 866 hearing, but left, and did not vote on bill. Stern represents western Los Angeles County (Agoura Hills, Calabasas, Hidden Hills, Malibu, Moorpark, Simi Valley, Thousand Oaks, Westlake Village, and part of Santa Clarita) and southeast Ventura County (Canoga Park, Chatsworth, Encino, Porter Ranch, Reseda, Lake Balboa, Tarzana, West Hills, Winnetka, and Woodland Hills) (see map). His district office is 818-876-3352, and here’s his email address.

26. Bob Hertzberg on May 5 avoided the SB 866 hearing and was replaced on the committee by Democrat Mike McGuire, who voted yes. Hertzberg represents the western San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles County, stretching from Sylmar to Sherman Oaks, and Northridge to Burbank (see map). His district office is 818-901-5588, and here’s his web form.

25. Melissa Hurtado represents the San Joaquin Valley from Bakersfield to Fresno, a strongly family-oriented area, in a formerly Republican district (see map). Her offices are 661-395-2620, 559-585-7161 and 559-264-3070, and here’s her web form.

24. Dave Min represents a formerly Republican district in Orange County, which includes the communities of Anaheim Hills, Costa Mesa, Huntington Beach, Irvine, Laguna Beach, Laguna Woods, Lake Forest, Newport Beach, Orange, Tustin, and Villa Park (see map). His office is 949-223-5472, and here’s his web form.

23. Josh Newman is from a formerly Republican district, and was successfully recalled from office in same district in 2018, which covers parts of Los Angeles, Orange, and San Bernardino Counties: Anaheim, Brea, Buena Park, Chino Hills, City of Industry, Cypress, Diamond Bar, Fullerton, La Habra, La Palma, Placentia, Rowland Heights, Stanton, Walnut, West Covina and Yorba Linda (see map). His district office is 714-525-2342, and here’s his web form.

22. Bob Wieckowski at the May 5 hearing on SB 866 expressed multiple concerns — whether a child is able to give informed consent, constitutionality, and liability when vaccine injuries occur — and the bill author, Scott Wiener, did not give satisfactory answers. And although voting yes to pass the bill in committee, he might abstain on the floor because he knows SB 866 is a dangerous bill and he only voted to “get it out of committee.” Wieckowski’s district is in southern Alameda County, stretching into Santa Clara County (see map). His district office is 510-794-3900, and here’s his web form.

21. John Laird at the May 5 hearing on SB 866 expressed concern about vaccine injuries and parental notification. And although voting yes to pass the bill in committee, he might abstain on the floor because he knows SB 866 is questionable and he only voted to “get it out of committee.” Laird’s district covers Santa Cruz and San Luis Obispo counties, and parts of Monterey and Santa Clara counties (see map). His district offices are 805-549-3784, 831-657-6315, 831-425-0401 and 408-847-6101, and here’s his web form.

If the above Democrats vote no or abstain on SB 866, the bill will fail for lack of 21 votes (a majority vote in the 40-member State Senate). Below are “insurance votes”:

20. Steve Glazer is a former fiscal advisor to former governor Jerry Brown and is a current critic of lack of transparency in state government agencies. He represents most of Contra Costa County, along with the Alameda communities of Dublin, Livermore, Pleasanton, and Sunol (see map). His district offices are 925-258-1176 and 925-754-1461, and here’s his web form.

19. Bill Dodd is a former “fiscal issue” Republican who represents a large district with enough conservatives to make it noticeably different from San Francisco and Los Angeles. The district includes the cities of Martinez and Pleasant Hill in Contra Costa County; American Canyon, Calistoga, Napa, Yountville, and St. Helena in Napa County; Benicia, Dixon, Fairfield, Rio Vista, Suisun City, Vacaville, and Vallejo, in Solano County; Cotati, Petaluma, Rohnert Park, and Sonoma in Sonoma County; Davis, Winters, and Woodland in Yolo County; and Isleton in Sacramento County (see map). His district offices are 707-454-3808, 707-224-1990, 707-576-2093 and 707-551-2389, and here’s his web form.

18. Josh Becker is a new state senator who says he wants “openness and transparency” in the law, and who sees himself as a free thinker. He represents most of San Mateo County and the northern part of Santa Clara County (see map). His district office is 650-212-3313, and here’s his web form.

17. Maria Durazo voted “yes” for SB 866 in committee despite publicly declaring parents “have a right to be fully informed.” So, despite her confusion about this bill eliminating parental consent for teen and pre-teen “shots,” she still might abstain on the Senate floor if enough of her constituents, who know she’s running for reelection, raise their voices. Her Los Angeles district include the areas north, west, and east of downtown Los Angeles, including Silver Lake/Echo Park, Glassell Park, Eagle Rock, Los Feliz, Chinatown, Koreatown, Highland Park, Boyle Heights, and East Los Angeles (see map). Her district office is 213-483-9300, and here’s her web form.

16. Sydney Kamlager is a new state senator representing mostly Latino voters (traditionally for parental rights) and a sizable black constituency (traditionally against forced vaccinations) in her Los Angeles downtown and west side district (see map). Her district office is 213-745-6656, and here’s her web form.

15. Susan Rubio is untested on this issue, was raised in a Mexican family that likely supported parental rights, and is running for reelection. She represents most of the San Gabriel Valley in Los Angeles County, including Arcadia, Temple City, Azusa, Baldwin Park, West Covina, La Puente, El Monte, Rosemead, Monterey Park, and Alhambra (see map). Her district office is 626-430-2499, and here’s her web form.

14. Anthony Portantino is old enough to remember parental rights, represents “bedroom communities” with many parents and children in them, and might be motivated to abstain on SB 866 if his constituents flood him with opposition calls. His district stretches along the Greater Los Angeles foothills, from Sunland-Tujunga to Upland, including Burbank, Glendale and Pasadena (see map). His district offices are 818-409-0400, 818-952-3432 and 909-599-7351, and here’s his web form.

13. Bob Archuleta doesn’t author anti-parent bills like Scott Wiener and Richard Pan do, and he’s running for reelection. If this establishment politician gets enough opposition calls, he might abstain on SB 866. And if he abstains, since his name is the second one called during the roll-call vote, his silence could influence other “swing Democrats.” Along the 605 and 5 freeways and the Los Angeles County/Orange County border, he represents Artesia, Bellflower, Cerritos, Downey, East Whittier, Hacienda Heights, Hawaiian Gardens, La Habra Heights, Lakewood, La Mirada, Montebello, Norwalk, Pico Rivera, Rose Hills, Santa Fe Springs, South Whittier, West Whittier-Los Nietos, Whittier and Buena Park (see map). His district office is 562-406-1001, and here’s his web form.

Best strategy to defeat infanticide bill, AB 2223

Tuesday, April 19, 2022, 8:53 pm | Randy Thomasson


The bad news is AB 2223 to legalize ‘perinatal death’ (infant death up to a month after birth) — in other words, legalizing infanticide — has passed two Democrat-controlled committees in the Assembly.

Due to all the opposition calls and opposition witnesses, it was hard to pass AB 2223 in the Assembly Health Committee April 19. Several Democrats had left the hearing, and probably the Capitol building, before 6pm. But AB 2223 sponsor Planned Parenthood and bill author Buffy Wicks of Oakland corralled them back — so all the Democrat committee members returned to vote yes for this infanticide bill. See our updated analysis

Yet the good news is AB 2223 might be defeated on the Assembly floor. Because Planned Parenthood abortionists aren’t on the floor, and the floor is where even Democrat members have traditionally been allowed to vote their conscience.

Who to call? SaveCalifornia.com has done the research for you. Below are the names and telephone numbers of 28 Assembly targets. These are Democrat assemblymembers who are either termed-out, new and untested, running in a new district, running in a formerly Republican district, or who have a history of sometimes abstaining on the most radical Democrat bills.

Here’s the math: If none of the Assembly’s 19 Republicans and 1 independent (former Republican Chad Mayes) vote for AB 2223, and if 17 of the current 59 Democrats abstain or vote no, this horrific bill will be defeated.

Instructions for calling

Unless you see your own assemblymember on this list below, please call only during non-business hours (8pm to 8am and weekends) and remain anonymous. The reason is so your calls will have impact and not be “trashed” (the Democrat legislators’ M.O. is to disregard every message not from their own constituents). By leaving anonymous voicemails only, the offices cannot reliably “trash” your calls, and you’ll “mix” in and be part of the flood of opposition calls.

Leave a strong voicemail message against AB 2223. Use your own words or our suggested message, such as: “Oppose AB 2223. This bill permits ‘perinatal deaths,’ which means permitting killing newborns up to a month after birth. Oppose AB 2223, which opens the door to infanticide.”

Source: The MedicineNet website definition of perinatal period is “starts at the 20th to 28th week of gestation and ends 1 to 4 weeks after birth.”

If you’re calling your own assemblymember, you should call during business hours, and identify yourself as living in his or her legislative district.

ASSEMBLY FLOOR ALERT: Call against medical tyranny

Thursday, April 14, 2022, 5:12 pm | Randy Thomasson

Scroll down for the Assembly deciding votes, and call them!

May 13 update: SB 1390 (Pan) and SB 1464 (Pan) are dead and have been removed from the call script

Of the several Covid medical tyranny bills SaveCalifornia.com is tracking, we believe some, most, or all of them can be defeated on the Assembly floor. Because even if the older, crustier, wealthier, more isolated-from-reality State Senate — with an even higher ratio of Democrats than in the lower house — passes a Covid tyranny bill, it can still be defeated on Assembly floor. And fight them we will, for the sake of our God-given liberties!

On April 14, good news that another medical tyranny bill is dead. SB 871 to require mandatory “Covid vaccine” shots for all schoolchildren has been pulled by its author. Thank you to everyone who urged the Democrats on the State Senate Health Committee to oppose SB 871. As the virus burns out, enough of these Dems got worried about burning up parents!

Yet there are still several other bills stamping out medical freedom that are advancing. Below are the names and telephone numbers of 28 Assembly targets. These are 27 Democrat assemblymembers and 1 independent member, who are either termed-out, new and untested, running in a new district, running in a formerly Republican district, or who have a history of sometimes abstaining on the most radical Democrat bills.

Again, here’s the math: If none of the Assembly’s 19 Republicans and 1 independent (former Republican Chad Mayes) vote for medical tyranny, and if 19 of the current 59 Democrats abstain or vote no, these bad bills will be defeated.

Instructions for calling

Unless you see your own assemblymember on this list below, please call only during non-business hours (8pm to 8am and weekends) and remain anonymous. The reason is so your calls will have impact and not be “trashed” (the Democrat legislators’ M.O. is to disregard every message not from their own constituents). By leaving anonymous voicemails only, the offices cannot reliably “trash” your calls, and you’ll “mix” in and be part of the flood of opposition calls.

Leave a strong voicemail message against ALL medical tyranny bills. Use your own words or our suggested message, such as: “Oppose all ‘Covid’ bills. The CDC isn’t even tracking the very mild variants after Omicron. And the ‘Covid vaccines’ are obsolete since they weren’t designed for variants, and they don’t prevent infection or transmission. End the mandates. Protect our basic human right of bodily autonomy. Stop these unnecessary, invasive ‘Covid vaccine,’ testing, and tracking bills. Oppose AB 1797, AB 2098, SB 866, SB 1018, and SB 1479.”

If you’re calling your own assemblymember, you should call during business hours, and identify yourself as living in his or her legislative district.

Science, at its best, is a search for existential truth. Sometimes, however, those truths threaten powerful economic paradigms. Both science and democracy rely on the free flow of accurate information. Greedy corporations and captive government regulators have consistently shown themselves willing to twist, distort, falsify, and corrupt science, hide information, and censor open debate to protect personal power and corporate profits. Censorship is the fatal enemy of both democracy and public health.Dr. Judy Mikovits and Kent Heckenlively in “Plague of Corruption: Restoring Faith in the Promise of Science” (2020)
