What this year’s big election has in common with the American Revolution

Sunday, July 3, 2022, 7:37 pm | Randy Thomasson

Today, Californians and Americans who want their God-given liberties and constitutional rights restored have much to learn from our U.S. founding fathers.

They knew their free-will liberties came directly from God’s Word, and that good government faithfully recognized and protected these rights.

They recognized evil government as infringing upon their God-given rights, such as “taxation without representation” and numerous other thieving and dehumanizing acts.

And they knew success requires hard work and that freedom isn’t free, so they pledged their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor in launching the Revolutionary War for our sakes.

Here in 2022, when we have more tyrannical government than our founding fathers could imagine, it’s time to be a patriot who sacrificially fights the good fight.

This election season is your opportunity to generate more good votes for good government. Please think of what you can do online, in your neighborhood, your workplace, and your church congregation. It’s time to fight for our rights and our families!

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
Declaration of Independence of the United States of America, July 4, 1776

What the U.S. Supreme Court rulings on abortion and guns mean for California

Friday, June 24, 2022, 12:35 pm | Randy Thomasson

We’re living in historic, even revolutionary, times. As the U.S. Supreme Court acts for the sake of constitutional justice, here’s some perspective to help you make sense of it all.

No more Roe won’t help California babies

Finally, after 49 years of Roe v. Wade’s unconstitutional, murderous agenda, it’s gone and abortion policies revert to 50 states.

Yet the demise of Roe won’t help California or other states ruled by abortion-loving Democrats. This is all the more reason to stand up for life. Especially since Newsom & Co. want to force California taxpayers to subsidize out-of-state abortions.

A top need of California pro-lifers this fall is to defeat SCA 10, which would go on the ballot to “codify” abortion on-demand in the California State Constitution. By proclaiming “The state shall not deny or interfere with an individual’s reproductive freedom in their most intimate decisions, which includes their fundamental right to choose to have an abortion,” SCA 10 would continue the California carnage of taxpayer-funded abortion procedures or pills for any girl or woman, regardless of a girl’s age, the number of abortions she’s already had, or her ability to pay. To be placed on the November ballot, SCA 10 requires a two-thirds vote of both the Assembly and the Senate (it already passed the Senate), followed by an affirmative majority vote of the People.

Today’s SCOTUS ruling striking down the unconstitutional, unscientific 1973 Roe v. Wade and the 1992 Planned Parenthood v. Casey opinions was 6 to 3 (Republican-president-nominated judges for the Constitution and life vs. Democrat-president-nominated judges for unconstitutional murder of pre-born babies). Read the history-making decision yourself

Get ready for more gun-owner freedoms

Unlike abortion, the “sacred cow” idol of Democrat politicians, and which is again a question of states’ rights, the fundamental rights of safety-conscious, constitutional gun owners will likely increase in California now that the U.S. Supreme Court has majorly upheld the Second Amendment in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen.

The June 23 ruling portends a new era of constitutional equity for gun owners in America. Relying on the God-given liberties preceding our Constitution, it concludes:

The constitutional right to bear arms in public for self defense is not “a second-class right, subject to an entirely different body of rules than the other Bill of Rights guarantees.” We know of no other constitutional right that an individual may exercise only after demonstrating to government officers some special need. That is not how the First Amendment works when it comes to unpopular speech or the free exercise of religion. It is not how the Sixth Amendment works when it comes to a defendant’s right to confront the witnesses against him. And it is not how the Second Amendment works when it comes to public carry for self-defense. New York’s proper-cause requirement violates the Fourteenth Amendment in that it prevents law-abiding citizens with ordinary self-defense needs from exercising their right to keep and bear arms. We therefore reverse the judgment of the Court of Appeals and remand the case for further proceedings consistent with this opinion.

The practical effect in California is this much-needed, admirable ruling will be used in both state and local lawsuits against the unconstitutional laws of the Democrat politicians. It might take a couple of years, but gun-owner rights organizations are planning to use the New York State decision against California’s unconstitutional ban on “assault weapons,” California’s unconstitutional ban on magazines over 10 rounds, California’s unconstitutional background checks, and the unconstitutional ban of concealed weapon permits in Democrat-controlled counties, such as Los Angeles. So have hope!

Just the facts: Why gas prices are so high

Why isn’t there a second Revolutionary War over oppressive gas prices? Because the godless government schools have been very successful at avoiding teaching children the Bible, the Constitution, real history, principles of logic, evidence-based research, and truisms such as the commerce law of Supply and Demand.

This week, SaveCalifornia.com produced and posted these three slides to help people realize who to blame for robbing them of their God-given resources and raising gas prices. Please enjoy and share!

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have progressed through this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; From spiritual faith to great courage; From courage to liberty; From liberty to abundance; From abundance to selfishness; From selfishness to apathy; From apathy to dependence; From dependence back into bondage.”

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).

UPDATE JUNE 30, 2022: The Democrat-controlled California Assembly has adjourned for a whole month without taking a vote today on the radical anti-parent SB 866. Thank you to everyone who’s called to oppose this terrible bill. You are winning on this pro-family/medical-freedom issue!

UPDATE 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.”
