EMERGENCY: Oppose anti-parent AB 665 on Senate floor

Thursday, June 22, 2023, 4:18 pm | Randy Thomasson


AUGUST 21, 2023 UPDATE: Are you encouraged to realize the horrible, anti-parent-bill AB 665 has been stuck on the State Senate floor for nearly two months? The next opportunity for the Senate to vote is this Thursday.

Which is another big reason for you to squeeze off some strategic, anonymous voicemail messages. See our previous alert below and act now!

* * *

You’ve heard that AB 665, permitting the anti-family Left to manipulate pre-teens and teens to leave their parents, has passed its Senate policy committee. Now, target the California State Senate floor with new information and strategic action. Please participate with SaveCalifornia.com in weighing down and weakening, and perhaps defeating, AB 665.
AB 665’s author lied about parental rights
The bill author, Assemblywoman Wendy Carrillo of Los Angeles County (her district includes Glendale, Los Feliz, Echo Park, and East Los Angeles), lied to the Senate Judiciary Committee on June 20 when she claimed AB 665 was really about “homeless youth.” Where is AB 665’s requirement that a minor be “homeless”? This “homeless” condition is NOT in the bill.

Another big lie was when Carrillo told committee members, “It is important that we realize that this does not change existing law as to the parental rights of a child.” But that’s not what the Legislative Counsel’s office says.

Instead, the Legislative Counsel’s Digest reports the main point of AB 665 is “removing [from current law] the additional requirement that, in order to consent to mental health treatment or counseling on an outpatient basis, or to residential shelter services, [the specific condition that] the minor must present a danger of serious physical or mental harm to themselves or to others, or be the alleged victim of incest or child abuse.”

AB 665 therefore eliminates existing parental consent before children can be taken away to a “residential shelter” and given drugs (“mental health treatment”).

(b) A minor who is 12 years of age or older may consent to mental health treatment or counseling on an outpatient basis, or to residential shelter services, if both of the following requirements are satisfied:
(1) The minor, in the opinion of the attending professional person, is mature enough to participate intelligently in the outpatient services or residential shelter services.
(2) The minor (A) would present a danger of serious physical or mental harm to self or to others without the mental health treatment or counseling or residential shelter services, or (B) is the alleged victim of incest or child abuse.

(b) A minor who is 12 years of age or older may consent to mental health treatment or counseling on an outpatient basis, or to residential shelter services, if the minor, in the opinion of the attending professional person, is mature enough to participate intelligently in the outpatient services or residential shelter services.

By deleting existing law that prohibits taking away children from home unless “The minor (A) would present a danger of serious physical or mental harm to self or to others without the mental health treatment or counseling or residential shelter services, or (B) is the alleged victim of incest or child abuse,” AB 665 erases parental consent in this section of Family Code.

AB 665 would permit children 12 years and up, who are neither harming themselves nor are victims of abuse, to “consent” to “mental health treatment or counseling services” or to go live at a “residential shelter.” Again, current law requires parental consent, but this bill wipes out parental consent.

AB 665 would replace the existing law’s two exceptions by letting children as young as 12 somehow “consent” to “treatment,” “counseling,” and a secret “residential shelter,” without parental involvement, parental consent, or even requiring proof of efforts to notify parents, if a “professional person” (under AB 665, this could be non-experts, such as “a psychological trainee, an associate clinical social worker, a social work intern, a clinical counselor trainee”) simply opines the minor is “mature enough to participate intelligently.” By deleting the current law’s harm or abuse conditions, AB 665 eliminates parental consent prior to children being taken away to live a “residential shelter” to receive “mental health treatment.”
AB 665’s sponsor lied about parental notification
And Carrillo’s chief witness lied when she told the Senate Judiciary Committee parents will be notified, saying, “This bill does nothing to make the existing parental notification that’s currently written in the law, so any providers of residential shelter services or of outpatient mental health care are required to go to their best efforts to notify parents that the young person is receiving the treatment.”

Yet the text of AB 665 neither requires parental notification nor any consequences for failing to notify parents. Look at all these “holes” in the bill:

(c) A professional person offering residential shelter services, whether as an individual or as a representative of an entity specified in paragraph (3) of subdivision (a), shall make their best efforts to notify the parent or guardian of the provision of services.

Our analysis: “Best efforts” is not defined. There’s no notification form, or even notification deadline, in AB 665. Parental notification isn’t real in this bill, which eliminates its so-called notification requirement if one believes it’s “inappropriate.”

(d) The mental health treatment or counseling of a minor authorized by this section shall include involvement of the minor’s parent or guardian unless the professional person who is treating or counseling the minor, after consulting with the minor, determines that the involvement would be inappropriate. The professional person who is treating or counseling the minor shall state in the client record whether and when the person attempted to contact the minor’s parent or guardian, and whether the attempt to contact was successful or unsuccessful, or the reason why, in the professional person’s opinion, it would be inappropriate to contact the minor’s parent or guardian.

Our analysis: Legally, “involvement” of a parent is not requiring parental consent. To ignore parents, a “professional person” merely needs to opine that parental “involvement would be inappropriate” and simply make a note why they didn’t, or why they thought it was “inappropriate” to even try to “contact the minor’s parent or guardian.” Again, parental notification is not required by AB 665.
TAKE ACTION: Target the State Senate floor
It’s up to concerned Californians to tell the truth about AB 665, which is on the Senate floor and could come up for a vote as soon as Monday, June 26.

ACT NOW! Please call 1) your own state senator, and 2) up to 21 “swing-vote” Democrats.

Call your own state senator (either during business hours or by leaving an after-hours voicemail) and here, identify yourself and where you live. Yet for the 21 “swing-vote” Democrats we’ve identified, leave only brief, anonymous voicemail messages Thursday evening and Friday morning (7pm to 8am) and all this weekend (Saturday and Sunday).

Leave your message, saying, “I’m calling to urge you to oppose AB 665. The bill author lied in committee. AB 665 does not require the prior condition of homelessness, yet blatantly eliminates parental consent, doesn’t even require parental notification, and threatens families statewide. Vote NO on AB 665!”

The California State Senate is composed of 40 senators, of which 32 are Democrats. Bills such as AB 665 require 21 votes to pass. Here are the names and numbers of half of the Democrat caucus members to call, listed from in priority from 32 down to below 21:

IMPORTANT NOTE: The following list of “swing-vote” Democrats includes 6 members of the Senate Judiciary Committee who’ve already voted yes on AB 665. However, they could easily change their votes on the Senate floor, due to new information about how the bill author and bill sponsor deceived them and how AB 665 clearly erases parental rights.

6 very welcome legal victories

Monday, September 12, 2022, 9:21 am | Randy Thomasson

California conservatives have been desperate for constitutional relief from tyrant Gavin Newsom, Joe Biden, and the New Communist Democrat machine. And now some relief has arrived!

Despite the U.S. Supreme Court failing to protect us from Covid tyranny (they refused to recognize our God-given, natural rights by upholding our 14th Amendment life, liberty, and property rights), over the last month, some Trump federal district court and appellate court judges — and believe it or not, even an Obama judge — have weakened Newsom’s and Biden’s tyrannical mandates on vaccines, abortions, “assisted suicides,” and “sex change” with the authority of the First Amendment.

Enjoy these recent legal victories for freedom of religion and freedom of speech!

Sept. 12: “Court protects Air Force class [who requested religious accommodation] from shot mandate”
“‘Significant proof’ Air Force discriminated against troops seeking vax religious exemptions”

Sept 2: Federal judge rules against Newsom and Democrat legislators:

Aug 25: Federal court rules against Newsom administration: “California churches don’t have to provide abortion coverage, court rules” https://www.seattletimes.com/nation-world/california-churches-dont-have-to-provide-abortion-coverage-court-rules

Aug 18: Federal court ruling: “U.S. Marines [who requested religious accommodation] win class protection from shot mandate” https://lc.org/newsroom/details/081922-us-marines-win-class-protection-from-shot-mandate

That religion, or the duty which we owe to our Creator and the manner of discharging it, can be directed by reason and conviction, not by force or violence; and therefore, all men are equally entitled to the free exercise of religion, according to the dictates of conscience; and that it is the mutual duty of all to practice Christian forbearance, love, and charity towards each other.
Religious freedom in the 1776 Virginia Declaration of Rights (still in the Virginia Constitution, Article 1, Section 16), written by U.S. founding father George Mason, and embraced by U.S. founding fathers Thomas Jefferson and James Madison

Don’t submit to government tyranny

Monday, December 7, 2020, 9:18 pm | Randy Thomasson

It’s painfully obvious that when ungodly people are in power, they unleash the mechanisms of hell against you. Because they either enjoy doing evil or don’t know what they’re doing.

In California, we have a mix of tyrants (those who gain false significance by controlling the most people they can), prostitutes (those who sell themselves to gain pleasure or avoid pain, such as most county supervisors, who are handsomely paid to support the unscientific lockdown), and officials who are incompetent, since they are consistently wrong about science, the constitution, and the nature of man.

Because malicious, unfaithful, and foolish people are running the show (see what happens when pastors don’t rally their congregations to support true Christians for public office?), for your own sake and the sake of others, please declare your God-given liberties and constitutional rights and resist tyranny.

  • Small businesses owners must not commit financial suicide, but should stay open despite opposition, to earn, profit, provide, and survive.
  • Biblical pastors should fully reopen with confidence in the New Testament, the First Amendment, and science. Open your doors to minister to people’s souls!

When will the destructive lockdown be over? When most people stop complying with it.

Ask yourself, would you rather live with the risk of opposition, and survive — or die in a self-inflicted act of suicide? Would you rather have some “arrows” shot at you, or take those arrows and plunge them into your own heart? The choice is light, life, and liberty — or darkness, death, and slavery.

Realize there’s not enough enforcement (police departments and sheriff’s departments generally won’t enforce lockdowns, and state and local licensing inspectors are spread too few and far between), most California resisters will experience mild to no opposition. Yet if small businesses incur a verbal warning, a written warning, or even a fine, isn’t risking this mild oppression worth the reward of survival?

“Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God”
Battlecry of our American Revolution

Then Nebuchadnezzar, in rage and fury, gave the command to bring Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego. So they brought these men before the king. Nebuchadnezzar spoke, saying to them, “Is it true, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, that you do not serve my gods or worship the gold image which I have set up? Now if you are ready at the time you hear the sound of the horn, flute, harp, lyre, and psaltery, in symphony with all kinds of music, and you fall down and worship the image which I have made, good! But if you do not worship, you shall be cast immediately into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. And who is the god who will deliver you from my hands?” Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego answered and said to the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king. But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up.”
