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.

Post-election analysis: Is the only direction upward for California conservatives?

Wednesday, June 8, 2022, 2:18 pm | Randy Thomasson

It’s the day after, and the dust is settling in California’s just-concluded “jungle primary” election.

And while the numbers will change each day until the primary election results are “certified” on July 15, I’m seeing evidence that Californians against government tyranny are more motivated than liberal voters. And I believe there’s the potential for some statewide offices to be captured by constitutional Republicans (or in the state schools chief contest, an in-reality reformer).

Are Californians voting more Republican?

Is California experiencing a conservative resurgence? With all the pain of the last two years, there’s evidence of Californians’ growing support for Republican candidates (especially Republicans who will fight for them) over Democrat candidates:

First, as I watched vote changes late into the night, in most statewide contests, the leading Republican’s lead kept increasing, while the leading Democrat’s numbers (usually the incumbent) kept decreasing.

Second, the initial election-night report of voter turnout showed reliably Republican counties with the highest voter turnout. If we consider recall-energized San Francisco the Democrats’ “high watermark” at 25% turnout, and exclude very-low-population Alpine County, the highest voter turnout was in the Republican strongholds of Mariposa County (42%), Amador County (41%), Sierra County (40%), Plumas County (37%), Modoc County (32%), Calaveras County (30%), El Dorado County (26%), and Del Norte County (26%).

Third, a Northern California congressional shows voters preferring a Republican fighter over his more-establishment Republican opponent. As I write this, Assemblyman Kevin Kiley has more than twice the votes of Sacramento Sheriff Scott Jones.

Because of the harmful manifestations of anti-people policies by the New Communist Democrats in California and Washington, D.C., I’m not surprised if votes for Republican candidates are indeed higher. And, ideally, imagine the surge in the upcoming general election if biblical pastors promoted voting as a clear, practical application of Jesus Christ’s command to “love your neighbor as yourself.” How transformative that would be!

5 statewide seats that could flip

California has eight state constitutional offices that are held by one person. Seven are partisan (Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Secretary of State, Controller, Treasurer, Attorney General, and Insurance Commissioner) and one is non-partisan (Superintendent of Public Instruction).

And while there’s just over a month to count the remaining votes, I see five statewide seats that could be taken from the ruling Democrats:

1. Controller: This is an open seat (incumbent Democrat Betty Yee is termed-out), and the first-place lead of 37% for taxpayer advocate Lanhee Chen. Veteran fiscal watchdog and current U.S. Representative Tom McClintock observed, “The controller’s office is the ideal office from which to wage a crusade in which to eliminate government waste.”

2. Insurance Commissioner: The incumbent Democrat, radical homosexual activist Ricardo Lara, only garnered 37%, which makes him politically vulnerable. I mean, has anyone’s insurance premiums gone down lately? “Reagan Republican” Robert Howell has a chance take this seat if California has a “conservative wave” in the November election.

3. State Superintendent of Public Instruction: The incumbent Democrat, Tony Thurmond of Oakland, received only 45.7% of the vote. With government unions running government schools, which made even liberal parents angry when schools were closed last year, this might be a perfect storm for pro-parent reformer George Yang.

4. Attorney General: The appointed incumbent Democrat, Rob Bonta, along with Governor Gavin Newsom, is incurring statewide blame for the current crime wave. Receiving 54.5% of the vote, Bonta might be deposed by hard-hitting, tough-on-crime messaging by Republican challenger Nathan Hochman.

5. U.S. Senator: Appointed incumbent Democrat Alex Padilla received only 53-54% of the vote for “partial term” and “full term.” Will he be negatively associated with Biden & Co. in November? In contrast, Republican Mark Meuser is a constitutional fighter.

You will have mostly real choices in the November election

Thank you if you voted! I appreciate you visiting our Pro-Family Election Center to equip you. And thank you big-time if you helped others to vote!

As I write this, if the “top two” vote-getters don’t change, nearly all California statewide offices will be a contest in November between a liberal Democrat and Republican, ranging from mostly conservative to constitutionalist.

Below is a snapshot of this morning’s statewide primary election results and the websites of the current “top two” in each contest. Please note that Republicans with percentages in the “teens” expect their Republican rivals’ supporters to vote for them in November. So assume them as practically having, post-primary-election, somewhere between 25% and 40% of the voters’ support.

For example, in the just-concluded primary election for governor, voting for 13 Republican candidates were 35.5% of the voters. These candidates attracted 1,208,643 voters, which is .6315861256658043% of Newsom’s 1,193,663 votes (Newsom “won” 56.3% of the electorate). Do the math: Newsom’s 56.3% x 0.6315861256658043 = 35.55829887498478% or 35.5% of the electorate for Republican candidates in the governor’s race. You can therefore expect Brian Dahle to attract at least this percentage in the general election.

Governor
Democrat incumbent Gavin Newsom 56.3%
Republican Brian Dahle 16.8%

Lieutenant Governor:
Democrat incumbent Eleni Kounalakis 52.1%
Republican Angela Underwood Jacobs 19.9%

Secretary of State:
Appointed Democrat incumbent Shirley Weber 58.8%
Republican Rob Bernosky 19.5%

Controller (open seat):
Republican Lanhee Chen 37%
Democrat Malia Cohen 21.3%

Treasurer:
Democrat incumbent Fiona Ma 57.6%
Republican Jack Guerrero 21.3%

Attorney General:
Appointed Democrat incumbent Rob Bonta 54.5%
Republican Nathan Hochman 18.5%

Insurance Commissioner:
Democrat incumbent Ricardo Lara 37%
Republican Robert Howell 17.8%

Superintendent of Public Instruction (officially non-partisan):
(Democrat) Tony Thurmond 45.7%
(DemocratAinye Long 11.7% (or will pro-parent reformer George Yang qualify for the run-off? At 11.6%, he’s only 1,818 votes behind Long)

U.S. Senate Full Term:
Appointed Democrat incumbent Alex Padilla
53.5%Republican Mark Meuser 14.3%

U.S. Senate Partial Term:
Appointed Democrat incumbent Alex Padilla 54.3%
Republican Mark Meuser 21.1%

2-day alert on SB 866 — keep up the pressure!

Monday, June 6, 2022, 6:43 pm | Randy Thomasson

SCROLL DOWN FOR YOUR NEW ACTION STEPS

Good news! SB 866 eliminating parental rights and informed consent on any and all vaccinations for teens and pre-teens was skipped over today (Monday, June 6) in an abbreviated floor session of the California State Assembly. THANK YOU to everyone who called the last few days — your pressure is working!

This delay until Thursday morning means you have more time to fight — and defeat — SB 866, which intends to eliminate parental consent and informed consent for controversial or risky vaccines for children as young as age 12!

Remember, under SB 866, parents won’t even know if their children are being manipulated, coerced, or bribed into baring their arm for a shot they don’t need and you don’t want. And how are 12-year-olds going to remember their medical history, and whether they’re susceptible to adverse reactions? And what if they have an adverse reaction — and the parent doesn’t know what caused it? SB 866 eliminates parental rights, at a time when parents are needed to provide “guardrails” against profit-motivated Big Pharma.

So because you want California families protected — both parents and their children — here are “both barrels” for your constitutional, pro-family “firepower” to strategically fight to stop SB 866 (and pave the way for more victories this election year). Please call now — you have until Thursday, June 9 at 9 a.m., when the Democrat-run Assembly meets again.

Below are who to call and what to say (and most of your calls will be voicemail messages without talking to a live person). However, if you want to say more, here are good talking points against SB 866.

STEP 1: Call your own California state assemblymember

Call your own state assemblymember during business hours — 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. — whether they’re Republican or Democrat. Identify yourself when you tell your Republican assemblymember you want him or her to “Stand up, raise your microphone, and speak against SB 866 — don’t be silent on the Assembly floor!” Or, if you have a Democrat assemblymember, tell them, “Don’t attack parents — don’t eliminate parental rights on teen and pre-teen vaccinations. Children cannot give informed consent or be responsible for knowing their risks beforehand or dealing with problems after an injection. Oppose SB 866!”
Find your own assemblymember’s website and office numbers here.

STEP 2: Leave anonymous voicemails for up to 31 deciding votes

30 Assembly floor targets (30 Democrats and 1 independent)
Please leave anonymous voicemails 7pm to 8am, using the message for Democrats: “Don’t attack parents — don’t eliminate parental rights on teen and pre-teen vaccinations. Children cannot give informed consent or be responsible for knowing their risks beforehand or dealing with problems after an injection. Oppose SB 866!”

Call their State Capitol offices or legislative district offices or both, but anonymously and after hours 7pm to 8am (because Democrat offices “trash” non-constituent messages, so don’t let them know you live outside their district!)
