Needed: A conservative constitutional fighter

Sunday, October 22, 2023, 12:05 pm | Randy Thomasson

2ND UPDATE Tuesday Oct. 24: In tonight’s Republican caucus meeting, a fourth round of voting to choose a House speaker nominee. And, with 128 votes, Mike Johnson of Louisiana has the majority. Among all the speaker candidates so far, with Liberty Score of 74%, Mike Johnson is the 5th-most conservative (after Byron Donalds (100%), Jim Jordan (94%), Kevin Hern (82%), and Gary Palmer (80%). So will the RINOs finally fold and support Johnson?

UPDATE Tuesday Oct. 24: Today, RINO Tom Emmer (Majority Whip under former speaker Kevin McCarthy) won the majority vote of the Republican caucus. Yet it took four ballots, more Emmer and his moderate/liberal “Republican” allies expected. Then Emmer requested a roll call vote of Republicans and more than 20 conservative, moral-values Republicans said “no way” to Emmer’s left-leaning candidacy. So after 4 hours of hard questions in this private “town hall meeting,” Emmer ended his bid for speaker (see latest updates).

As soon as Wednesday, Oct. 25, another round — five Republicans will speak to the Republican caucus members about why they should be speaker. Among the five now running, can you spot the RINOs (Republicans in Name Only)? Hint: They have low grades on conservative, constitutional policies:

Byron Donalds of Florida
Liberty Score 100% (A grade)

Chuck Fleischmann of Tennessee
Liberty Score 56% (F grade)

Mark Green of Tennessee
Liberty Score 85% (B grade)

Mike Johnson of Louisiana
Liberty Score 74% (C grade)

Roger Williams of Texas
Liberty Score 76% (C grade)

Call your Republican U.S. Rep now at 202-225-3121 to demand Byron Donalds as speaker!

After rejecting both RINO Steve Scalise and pro-family constitutionalist Jim Jordan, the registered Republicans running the U.S. House of Representatives are now on “round three” of speaker candidates.

Demonstrating how this race is now wide open, there are several who have thrown their hats into the ring. On Friday, SaveCalifornia.com showed our social media followers the conservative moral/social/fiscal issues Liberty Scores of the speaker candidates:

Today’s update is Jodey Arrington of Texas is not running, but Gary Palmer of Alabama is. And among the Republican speaker candidates, Palmer has the third-highest Liberty Score — 80%. The Republican caucus is expected to hold internal votes as soon as this Tuesday.

UPDATE Monday, Oct. 23: RINO Republican Dan Meuser has dropped out.

Why do these scores, based on member’s actual votes, matter? Because we need a conservative constitutional fighter as the powerful Speaker of the House to: short-term, steadfastly stop all bad bills; mid-term, aggressively use the House’s investigatory powers to expose the Deep State, the Bidens, election fraud, and much more; and long-term, to help true conservatives (not RINOs) be elected.

TAKE QUICK ACTION: Call your own Republican U.S. Representative (if you have one), to say “Support a conservative constitutional fighter for speaker.” It would also be wise to name your top 1, 2, or 3 speaker picks, since at Tuesday’s private, internal meeting, there might be several ballots in an elimination process. Call 202-225-3121 and provide your zip code, or send an email via house.gov when you enter your zip code.

Newsom’s U.S. Senate pick: Worse than Feinstein

Monday, October 2, 2023, 8:19 am | Randy Thomasson
Laphonza Butler, a top strategist on the Kamala Harris for President team, in 2019

Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom has announced his appointment to replace the late Dianne Feinstein. And even worse than Feinstein, Laphonza Butler brazenly embraces Newsom’s and Kamala Harris’ immoral agenda:

She’s a leading abortion activist: Butler is currently the head of Emily’s List, a wealthy, Democrat-run pro-abortion political group (Source), which opposes all baby killing restrictions, such as banning abortions when a pre-born baby’s heartbeat is confirmed. (Source)

She’s an “out” lesbian “married” to another woman: Butler and her “wife” are both “LGBTQIA+” activists. In 2020, Butler joined Airbnb as its director of public policy and campaigns , turning it hard against property owners with moral values (Source). Demonstrating she believes all the “LGBTQIA+” lies, Butler wrote last year, “And these are yet again, the same politicians who also don’t believe in science, who are attacking trans-youth and erasing the history of our country by banning books.” (Source)

She’s a former union boss who led revolts against small business owners and coerced millions in ‘dues’: “Butler served as president of Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 2015, the nation’s largest home care and nursing home workers union.” (Source) As the Freedom Foundation observed in 2018, “SEIU 2015 deducts a staggering 3 percent of the caregivers’ meager paychecks, which comes to more than $500 per year for many…When a caregiver tries to opt out of union membership, they are sent a 500-word form letter rejecting their request. The letter rambles on about the benefits of union membership and buries instructions on how to “properly” opt out during the annual 15-day escape period.” (Source)

She’s a racist: Butler was on the board of BlackPAC, which defines itself as “an independent, Black-led organization that uses the power of year-round political engagement and elections to change our economic, justice, and political systems…We’re holding our public officials accountable to a policy agenda that defends our rights, promotes dignity, and ends white supremacy.” (Source)

And she doesn’t even live California: “But according to a filing with the Federal Election Commission from September 2023, Butler doesn’t live in California, nor anywhere close to the state. Instead, it appears she lives in Silver Spring, Maryland, a Washington, DC suburb. Using the address listed in the FEC filing, it’s possible to find Butler’s voter registration in Maryland, which is as recent as September 2022 and classifies the Silver Spring address as her “residential” location.” (Source)

Ditch the smiles — Laphonza Butler will further “butcher” our children and our Constitution.

“And the attacks on our rights, the rights to make decisions about our body, the attacks on our voting rights — that is happening with governors and state legislators. And so EMILY’s List specifically is going to be focused on engaging and investing the resources to win at the state and local level so that these are cases that don’t wind their way to the courts.”

AB 957 vetoed + new alert on second anti-parent bill AB 665

Saturday, September 23, 2023, 11:27 am | Randy Thomasson


Late Friday, Sept. 22, Gavin Newsom vetoed AB 957, instructing judges in child custody cases to disfavor moral parents who are against the ‘trans’ confusion of their own children.

Thank you for following SaveCalifornia.com’s lead to call and email Newsom. We knew this radical anti-parent, anti-religious-freedom bill was vetoable. Because Newsom IS running for president. And he doesn’t want Republican candidates or media or even less-liberal Democrats in other states saying “Hey, you sign a bill against parents, against religious freedom, and in favor of the ‘trans’ agenda targeting our children!”

Indeed, in Newsom’s Sept. 22 veto message, he demonstrated he’s AGAINST biological facts and moral values for children, writing, “I appreciate the passion and values that led the author to introduce this bill. I share a deep commitment to advancing the rights of transgender Californians, an effort that has guided my decisions through many decades in public office.”

So, instead of criticizing AB 957 on substance, he said he didn’t like its violation of separation of powers, writing, “I urge caution when the Executive and Legislative branches of state government attempt to dictate – in prescriptive terms that single out one characteristic – legal standards for the Judicial branch to apply.” Wow, in his quest to avoid being known as the uberliberal, power-hungry activist he is, Newsom’s even willing to sound like a constitutionalist!

Yet Newsom then revealed his real concern — that signing AB 957 could provoke conservative Republican states to pass laws instructing judges to disfavor pro-transsexuality parents — when he warned, “Other-minded
elected officials, in California and other states, could very well use this strategy to diminish the civil rights of vulnerable communities

So, there you have it. Gavin Newsom is against the natural family, against parental rights, against biological facts, and against the best interests of children. But he’s running for president (he’s waiting for the White House Occupant to step aside), and your flood of phone calls and web form messages reminded Newsom how unpopular AB 957 was.

I congratulate everyone who opposed this evil bill — this is your victory! Now please use the same strategy to deluge Newsom with opposition to the other big, bad, anti-parent bill, AB 665, which would permit the anti-family Establishment Left to manipulate pre-teens and teens to somehow “consent” to leave their parents.

Remember, 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” and go live at a “residential shelter.” Again, current law requires parental consent, but this bill wipes out God-given parental rights.

PLEASE ACT NOW: Urge Newsom to veto AB 665 by calling his office, Monday-Friday, 9-5 at 916-445-2841. When a staffer answers, tell the staffer paid to take your simple message: “I’m calling to urge the Governor to veto the anti-parent bill AB 665.” Please also use Newsom’s web form (on the right-hand side of the page, select “An Active Bill,” then scroll down to select AB 665, then select “Con” to oppose). He has until October 14 to sign or veto bills, but could decide anytime on AB 665. Make Newsom realize how unpopular this radical bill is!

Families were created to make up for what evolution did not provide, namely a way by which men could be induced to support the children they beget and care for the women they impregnate. But since marriage is a social invention, we have learned how it can be undercut by people who think that their lives will be fuller, their opportunities greater, and their burdens fewer if they are allowed to treat sex as recreation, children as toys, and income as an obligation of government rather than a result of work.
