NEW ALERT: Is the radical, anti-parent bill SB 866 all but dead?

Thursday, June 9, 2022, 5:50 pm | Randy Thomasson

UPDATE — Thursday, June 16: This morning, radical anti-parent bill SB 866 was amended (replacing age 12 with 15) on the Assembly floor. Eighteen of 19 Republicans voted no, as did 3 Democrats., and there 19 Democrats that we believer purposefully abstained because they’re uncomfortable with the bill. The amended SB 866 — still eliminating parental consent and inform consent on teenage injections — still might not pass the next Assembly session on June 20 @ 1pm. So tell assemblymembers the amended bill is still anti-parent!

UPDATE — Wednesday, June 15: SB 866 doesn’t have the votes to pass, so the author, “LGBTQIA+” Democrat State Senator Scott Weiner of San Francisco is reportedly amending his bill to say children aged 15 and up (not 12 and up, as the bill currently reads). This would mean amending the bill on the Assembly on Thursday, June 16, but not voting on the amended bill itself until the next scheduled floor session. And SB 866 can only be amended if a “majority…of Members present and voting” vote yes to do so.

From the Assembly Rules:
69. (a) Any Member may move to amend a bill during its second or
third reading, and that motion to amend may be adopted by a majority
vote of the Members present and voting.

69. (d) Any bill amended on the second or third reading fi le shall be
ordered reprinted and returned to the third reading fi le, and may not be
acted on by the Assembly until the bill, as amended, has been on the
Daily File for one calendar day.

UPDATE — Monday, June 13: Good news, 3 Democrats were absent today, and radical anti-parent bill SB 866 was skipped over a 3rd straight Assembly session. It can be heard on the next floor session, which is Thursday, June 16 at 9 a.m. Keep your strategic calls coming!


1. Call your own Republican or Democrat state assemblymember: https://findyourrep.legislature.ca.gov

For Republican assemblymembers say:
“Stand and speak against SB 866 on the floor. Raise your voice to expose the harm of this anti-parent, anti-child bill!”

For Democrat assemblymembers, deliver the message:
“Don’t attack parents — don’t eliminate parental rights for teen and pre-teens. Children cannot give informed consent or be responsible for knowing their risks beforehand or dealing with problems after a shot — that’s what parents are for. Oppose SB 866!”

2. Call the deciding-vote state assemblymembers. (Scroll down for names and phone numbers.)

Thank you for being pro-family — for caring for what’s best for children and for supporting God-given parental rights for yourself and others, which SB 866 would utterly trample. Here’s the latest good news and new action steps. Please participate — let’s kill SB 866!

Today (Thursday, June 9, 2022), in another abbreviated floor session that lasted just a half hour, the Democrat-controlled California Assembly again skipped over SB 866, which would eliminate parental consent and informed consent for controversial, even risky injections, into children’s bodies as young as age 12.

This second delay of a floor vote on SB 866 is thanks to you and thousands of other concerned Californians who have been calling the deciding votes we’ve identified. And, because SB 866 so blatantly pushes parents out of the picture, enough Democrat state assemblymembers seem to “get it” that voting for it would hurt them politically.

Is SB 866 all but dead? Let’s count the votes. In the California State Assembly, to pass bills requires 41 yes votes, a majority in the 80-seat lower house. There are currently two Democrat vacancies, leaving 78 members, of whom there are 19 Republicans and 1 independent. If these 20 don’t support SB 866, we’re left with 58 Democrats who could.

But if at least 19 Democrats don’t support SB 866, it will fail for lack of a majority, receiving 40, not 41, votes. Here’s our “SB 866 vote countdown” — counting from 58 Democrats minus at least 19 Democrats who won’t support this radical, anti-parent bill:

43. Sabrina Cervantes 916-319-2060 and 951-371-6860: Initially abstained on AB 2098 punishing good doctors and 2223 permitting infanticide, but then later changed her votes to yes after both bills passed

38. Mike Gipson 916-319-2064 and 310-324-6408: Thinks he’s a Christian and might support clear-cut parental rights
37. Mike Fong 916-319-2049 and 323-264-4949: Represents mostly Asian families, as well as Hispanic families
36Miguel Santiago 916-319-2053 and 213-620-4646: Represents mostly pro-parental-rights Hispanic families
35Eduardo Garcia 916-319-2056 and 760-347-2360: From the sprawling Imperial Valley region with many Hispanic families
34. Jacqui Irwin 916-319-2044 and 805-482-1904: Represents part of state senator Henry Stern’s district, who abstained

31. Eloise Reyes 916-319-2047 and 909-381-3238: Said in committee she supports parental rights but wants to “go with the science” so she voted yes on SB 866. Might be brought out of confusion with phone calls. Her district also overlaps the state senate districts of Democrats Connie Leyva and Richard Roth, both who abstained on SB 866.
30. Robert Rivas 916-319-2030 and 831-759-8676: His district overlaps that of Democrat State Senator Anna Caballero, who abstained on SB 866.
29. Lori Wilson 916-319-2011 and 707-399-3011: Is new, might be influenced by Republican voices on floor, might mimic abstention of adjacent district assemblyman Timothy Grayson.
28. Cecelia Aguiar-Curry 916-319-2004 and 530-757-1034 and 707-224-0440: Although she’s an SB 866 co-author, she has an independent streak and might abstain if she realizes it might hurt both her and the Democrat brand

Q: So, if they’ve skipped over SB 866 multiple times on the assembly floor, is SB 866 is dead? A: We say “No, not yet.” Because our side needs more commitments from deciding-vote Democrats that they’ll oppose SB 866. And we need that pressure and assurance before the Assembly meets again (Monday, June 13 at 1 p.m.).

Please go for the win by calling anew to the phone numbers above Thursday and Friday 7pm to 8am and anytime this weekend. Also please call “independent” Chad Mayes at 916-319-2042 and 760-346-6342. Leave anonymous voicemails (because Democrat offices will “trash” your messages if they confirm you live out of their districts, so don’t reveal your identity or location, and just “mix in” with the flood of voicemails the member is receiving).

Tell them something like: “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 — that’s what parents are for. Oppose SB 866!”

Also, please call your own state assemblymember Monday through Friday during business hours (9am to 5pm) and identify yourself. Find your own assemblymember

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

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


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!)

7 encouraging trends in the fight for medical freedom

Monday, November 29, 2021, 9:35 am | Randy Thomasson
Have you asked yourself, “Can we get our country back? Is there any hope of restoring our God-given liberties and constitutional rights?” I have — and I believe the answer is yes. Because a “sleeping giant” has awoken, and a new revolution against medical tyrants has begun.

These 7 events and trends this month for the sake of medical freedom have encouraged me — for both California and our nation. I hope they’ll encourage you too:

1. Parents attempt to “fire” anti-family board member. In the west Riverside County communities of Corona and Norco, parents on November 9 launched a recall campaign aiming to oust a pro-mask, pro-jab, pro-racism (“Critical Race Theory”) school board member. The recall option should be used against all school board members who are imposing masks and who also want to force jabs and CRT upon kids. Because even qualifying for the ballot with signatures could be enough to bring about a “new policy.”

2. Pro-family school boards say “no” to mandatory “Covid vaccines”: This month, school districts in Calaveras County and Ramona in San Diego County voted to prohibit mandatory “Covid vaccines.” On November 22, “Let Them Choose” claimed 22 of 1088 school districts in California have done likewise. You can help win more victories. Take and distribute facts, and take friends (including attorneys and doctors) to a school board meeting near you.

3. A constitutional California city council declares themselves a “sanctuary city” from Covid mandates: On November 2, the city council in Oroville (in Butte County) voted 6 to 1 to not enforce “any executive orders issued by the state of California or by the United States federal government that are overreaching or clearly violate our constitutionally protected rights.” This very welcome resolution in favor of medical freedom should be mimicked by every city councilmember, all of whom have raised their right hand to publicly promise to abide by the written words of the state and federal constitutions.

4. Tens of thousands of people are rejecting government “health authorities”: When healthcare workers, teachers, city and county workers, and enlisted military personnel are willing to be fired from their jobs instead of endangering their lives and health, a whole new voter bloc for medical freedom and the First Amendment is being created. Meanwhile, among younger Americans nationwide, ages 18 to 34, 54% disapprove of White House occupant Joe Biden, in part, because his higher prices and mask and jab policies are robbing them of liberty and hope. This “young” support of what’s right in God’s sight is unheard of since 1984 when President Ronald Reagan won the trust of young voters.

5. Dozens of federal court cases give us a chance of nationwide medical freedom: From the federal OSHA cases being assigned to the constitutional-majority 6th Circuit Court of Appeals, to dozens of other federal lawsuits representing healthcare workers, airline pilots, police and fire, members of the military, and all religious objectors — all this is challenging the Trump judges on the U.S. Supreme Court to respect and protect individual rights. We need 5 or 6 SCOTUS judges to at least rule in favor of religious exemptions to vaccines, and at most rule no one in America can be forced to have any injections (no involuntary medical treatment), period.

6. Evidence keeps emerging that being unvaccinated is acceptable, even preferable: Years ago, before the medical establishment sold out to Big Pharma, most doctors and epidemiologists fully acknowledged that recovering from a virus gives you lifelong immunity. This is why decades ago, wise parents often ensured their children would catch chickenpox. Now, in the United Kingdom, you’re healthier not having the “Covid vaccine,” where vaccinated people under age 60 are dying from all causes at twice the rate of the unvaccinated, with the “jab” being “the elephant in the room.” Meanwhile, in Germany, there’s been a noticeable spike in deaths among the vaccinated population, as the sad effects of the experimental biological agents begin kicking in. Couple this with even the New York Times admitting that children infected with Covid or a “variant” only exhibit “mild” symptoms (if any), thus no “emergency” justifying jabs that are risky to children.

7. The latest scamdemic out of South Africa is being exposed early: As pro-medical-freedom leaders on social media are already explaining, the latest scamdemic dubbed the “Omicron variant” (from South Africa and neighboring Botswana) that Biden & Company, along with the World Health Organization, want to shove upon all of us, is completely without substance. The chair of the South African Medical Association says the “Omicron variant” is not worth the “hype,” explaining, “the cases we are seeing are extremely mild … So are we seriously worried? No.” And get this about the four “Omicron variant” infections in Botswana: 1) This is not something a “Covid vaccine” will fix: November 25 official Government of Botswana news release: “The preliminary report revealed that all the four had been fully vaccinated for COVID-19.” 2) There’s no big problem here, so no “emergency” and no “mandates” are justified: November 26 Botswana news release: “All contacts who have so far been identified in the country, have no COVID-19 symptoms and have tested negative for COVID-19.” Sounds like much ado about nothing. But don’t put it beyond the world’s medical tyrants to try to punish Africa, which has been resisting “Covid vaccines” from the get-go. But Africans get more sunshine and outdoors activity and have less obesity than most other nations. Their natural immunity should be applauded, not disparaged.

What’s your and my takeaway from this encouraging news and perspective? We can win the war for our God-given liberties and constitutional rights. But it’s going to take time and effort with the character of sacrificial love. So please, stay in the battle. Resist government tyranny. Stand unapologetically for your moral, social, and fiscal values. Present evidence and ask questions to inquiring minds. Take action for the futures of your children and grandchildren. Invite others to join you at a protest event. Keep standing, keep supporting what’s right in God’s sight, and keep loving others with the truth!

“Our cruel and unrelenting Enemy leaves us no choice but a brave resistance, or the most abject submission; this is all we can expect – We have therefore to resolve to conquer or die: Our own Country’s Honor, all call upon us for a vigorous and manly exertion, and if we now shamefully fail, we shall become infamous to the whole world. Let us therefore rely upon the goodness of the Cause, and the aid of the supreme Being, in whose hands Victory is, to animate and encourage us to great and noble Actions – The Eyes of all our Countrymen are now upon us, and we shall have their blessings, and praises, if happily we are the instruments of saving them from the Tyranny meditated against them. Let us therefore animate and encourage each other, and shew the whole world, that a Freeman contending for Liberty on his own ground is superior to any slavish mercenary on earth.”
George Washington, commander of the Continental Army and 1st U.S. president, in his August 27, 1776 address to his army before the Battle of Long Island
