Why the big, bad ‘vaccine passport’ bill was dropped

Tuesday, August 31, 2021, 3:22 pm | Randy Thomasson
Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom with Democrat Assemblywoman Buffy Wicks of Oakland (California’s murder capital), a close ally of Newsom and the main author of the proposed “vaccine mandates” and “vaccine passports” amendments for AB 455.
Late Monday, when Democrat-controlled newspapers reported what Buffy Wicks, a Gavin-Newsom-loving Democrat state Assemblywoman told them, I rejoiced that the proposed statewide “vaccine passport” of AB 455 is “dead for the year.” Look at these headlines:

— “Democratic lawmakers drop their idea of a California statewide vaccine mandate”
— “California Democrats drop plan to require COVID vaccines to work, go to most public places”
— “Proposed California vaccine verification bill on ice”
— “Vaccine requirement for California workers shelved for the year”

The demise of this unscientific proposal, to deny health-conscious people basic necessities and jobs unless they get a risky injection in their arms, is a result of thousands of righteously angry Californians calling and emailing.

Because a “vaccine passport” is controversial, and since the “lobby” in favor of it is new and not overwhelming, this was a definite opportunity to win. And so quick action by liberty-loving citizens paid off, flooding Sacramento with thousands of calls and emails for several days, and stopping this monstrous bill before it was formally introduced. The ruling Democrats wanted to avoid loss and protect Gavin Newsom from upset voters!

If you participated with SaveCalifornia.com in helping to expose and oppose AB 455’s proposed “vaccine passport,” you are part of this victory — thank you big-time!

However, with Gavin Newsom’s tyrannical “vaccine mandates” upon state workers, health care workers, and schoolteachers, and with too many big businesses becoming Newsom’s human-crime accomplices, health-conscious Californians need help overcoming the decidedly un-American threat of “the jab or your job.” Here’s my advice:

Get your religious exemption, which is your right under the U.S. Civil Rights Act

— Don’t quit your job over the “jab,” but resist and let them reassign you, or even fire you (this way, you’ll qualify for unemployment payments)

— Get educated and stimulated by watching the August 31 San Diego BOS meeting (PM part)

— Urge your own state legislators to oppose AB 1102 and HR 71 which try to force risky “jabs”

— Grasp the fact that Covid-related deaths in California is currently 0.01 or 0.02 “deaths per 100K.” This means if you’re infected with any form of Covid, your chance of dying from it is either 1 in 5 million or 1 in 10 million — much lower than your chance of dying from walking, driving, eating, or being hit by a bolt of lightning

— Remind yourself and others of the official government statistics showing tens of thousands of deaths and millions of injuries from the dangerous “Covid vaccines”

— Exercise your constitutional character at a medical freedom protest near you

“I think this whole pandemic from the beginning was about the vaccine. So I think all roads lead to the vaccine and what it means. There are already places in southeast Asia and Europe — they’re laying the groundwork for compulsory vaccination — I mean, compulsory — that means somebody pins you down to the ground and puts a needle in you. That’s how bad stakeholders want vaccination … This ‘needle in every arm’ is a very important moniker. Why? The tension that Americans are feeling right now, as they’re trying to keep their jobs and go to work, is they know they could die of the vaccine — that’s the problem!”

ALERT: Stop the Democrat squad’s ‘vaccine passport’ scheme

Saturday, August 28, 2021, 9:24 am | Randy Thomasson


It was predictable and now it’s here. A squad of Democrat state legislators want to require vaccination proof nearly everywhere you shop, do business, or go places in California.

The amendments to AB 455 (currently a transportation bill) would essentially segregate Californians by unfairly discriminating against, denying service to, and even impoverishing health-conscious citizens. In addition, the proposed bill would require every employee anywhere in California to get the “jab” or take a weekly test showing a “negative” result.

And the Democrat politicians have also drafted amendments to AB 1102 (currently a “telephone medical advice services” bill) to push unwanted “jabs” upon every employee in California.

This is so wrong. Requiring “Covid vaccine passports” statewide would discriminate against, segregate, and punish health-conscious Californians who are wisely resisting “Covid vaccines” because they know these injections have killed tens of thousands and injured millions:

U.S.: 9,027 dead, 1,517,211 injured
Europe: 21,766 dead, 2 million+ injured
U.K.: 1,559 dead, 1,135,579 injured
Brazil: 32,000+ dead

AB 455, as proposed, would be “gutted and amended” by six Democrats, including the Legislature’s chief medical tyrant Richard Pan of Sacramento and the very immoral Scott Wiener of San Francisco.

Its worst part would require most Californians to show proof of injection with a “Covid vaccine” by displaying a card or paper or a digital document — or else they cannot enter most “places of public accommodation,” which pages 12 and 13 of the draft of the amended AB 455 command:

SEC. 2 Section 52.8 is added to the Civil Code, to read:
52.8 (a) Notwithstanding any other law, an establishment, as defined in subdivision (b), shall require each person who is eligible defined in subdivision (b), shall require each person who is eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, who seeks to enter the indoor facilities of that establishment, to show proof to an employee or authorized agent of the establishment that the person has been vaccinated against COVID-19.
(b) For purposes of this section, the following definitions apply:
(1) “Establishment” means any of the following that serve the public as a place of public accommodation:

(A) Any inn, hotel, motel, or other establishment that provides lodging to transient guests, other than an establishment located within a building that does not contain more than five rooms for rent or hire and that is actually occupied by the proprietor of that establishment as the proprietor’s residence.
(B) Any restaurant, bar, cafeteria, lunchroom, lunch counter; soda fountain, or other facility principally engaged in selling food or beverages for consumption on the premises, including, but not limited to, any such facility located on the premises of any retail establishment or gasoline station.

(C) Any motion picture house, theater, concert hall, sports arena, stadium, gym, spa, or other place of exhibition or entertainment.
(D) Any establishment that is physicially located within the premises of any establishment otherwise covered by this paragraph.
(E) Notwithstanding subparagraphs (A) to (D) inclusive, “establishment” does not include a place where food is served exclusively for takeout, curbside pickup, or consumption at another location and is not open to the public.

Some analysts of proposed amendments of AB 455 think grocery stores and church congregations would be exempt, and I agree where the draft bill exempts food sold for “consumption at another location,” this means grocery stores. And yes, California church congregations have recently been recognized by the federal courts as being exempt from all Covid-related restrictions.

However, beyond the list in the draft bill, “place of public accommodation” is very broadly defined in California law to apply to nearly every type of commerce. Check out this exhaustive list of “place of public accommodation” in the federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) law:

(A) an inn, hotel, motel, or other place of lodging, except for an establishment located within a building that contains not more than five rooms for rent or hire and that is actually occupied by the proprietor of such establishment as the residence of such proprietor;
(B) a restaurant, bar, or other establishment serving food or drink;
(C) a motion picture house, theater, concert hall, stadium, or other place of exhibition or entertainment;
(D) an auditorium, convention center, lecture hall, or other place of public gathering;
(E) a bakery, grocery store, clothing store, hardware store, shopping center, or other sales or rental establishment;
(F) a laundromat, dry-cleaner, bank, barber shop, beauty shop, travel service, shoe repair service, funeral parlor, gas station, office of an accountant or lawyer, pharmacy, insurance office, professional office of a health care provider, hospital, or other service establishment;
(G) a terminal, depot, or other station used for specified public transportation;
(H) a museum, library, gallery, or other place of public display or collection;
I) a park, zoo, amusement park, or other place of recreation;
(J) a nursery, elementary, secondary, undergraduate, or postgraduate private school, or other place of education;
(K) a day care center, senior citizen center, homeless shelter, food bank, adoption agency, or other social service center establishment; and
(L) a gymnasium, health spa, bowling alley, golf course, or other place of exercise or recreation.

What does this mean? That depending on the enforcement or judicial interpretation, AB 455’s tyrannial reach could be more than the bill itself discloses!


Fortunately, there is a real chance to stop this extreme medical tyranny. The proposed amendments would make both AB 455 and AB 1102 urgency measures, which requires a two-thirds vote by both houses of the California Legislature.

The chance to defeat AB 455 is highest in the 80-member State Assembly. Despite having a super-majority of 59 Democrats, if 6 Democrats don’t vote yes (and if none of the 19 Republicans — or the 1 Independent — vote yes), this awful bill will be defeated.


Whether you call them during the day or leave voicemails at night, or email via web forms, tell legislators “Don’t you dare segregate and discriminate against people by denying them their own choice of what goes into their own bodies. Stop AB 455 and AB 1102. Stop these anti-choice bills now!”

STEP 1. Find your own two California state legislators. You have both a state assemblymember and a state senator. On their web pages, click “contact” and type or paste in your message. Give your name and contact information as requested, because you are a voter in their district with influence.

STEP 2. Want to do more? Leave anonymous voicemails (during non-business hours) for 13 Democrat state assemblymembers, who on June 3, refused to support an urgency measure taxing guns and ammunition, stopping it in its tracks. Call them to oppose AB 455 and AB 1102 in the evening, overnight, or early morning with your anonymous phone calls with the same voicemail message (bolded above, starting with “Don’t you dare”).

You need a religious exemption

Sunday, August 22, 2021, 12:10 pm | Randy Thomasson
When the standard safey tests were skipped over, when tens of thousands of Americans have died from it, and when your voluntary will is violated by tyrants, it’s time to reject “the jab or your job.” Get your religious exemption today!

Sept. 28, 2021 update: See my latest blog on this for the best information

Sept. 15, 2021 update on two Placer County (northeast of Sacramento) locations providing religious exemption letters, and Peggy Hall too:

1. Update from Destiny Christian Church in Rocklin: “Need a Religious Exemption? We are no longer offering religious exemptions during service. To apply for a religious exemption form, please click here.”

2. New religious exemption letter being issued in Roseville: Pastor and restaurateur Matthew Oliver is giving religious exemption letters to people in need.

3. California medical freedom and health expert Peggy Hall is offering tips for success with a draft religious freedom letter on her site. This is probably your best way to achieve your religious exemption in California. Her tips include “How to prepare,” “Top mistakes to avoid,” “What NOT to put in your request,” and “How to appeal.”

Do you know that in the United States of America, there is a widely-recognized exemption to vaccines on religious grounds?

Currently, 28 U.S. states honor religious exemptions to mandatory vaccines for schoolchildren. This obviously also applies to adults in the civilian population, who, until this year, have never been subjected to mandatory vaccinations.

Notably, the U.S. Civil Rights Act of 1964 protects religion as a civil right:

SEC. 2000e. [Section 701]
For the purposes of this subchapter-(j) The term “religion” includes all aspects of religious observance and practice, as well as belief, unless an employer demonstrates that he is unable to reasonably accommodate to an employee’s or prospective employee’s religious observance or practice without undue hardship on the conduct of the employer’s business.
SEC. 2000e-2. [Section 703]
(a) Employer practices
It shall be an unlawful employment practice for an employer –
(1) to fail or refuse to hire or to discharge any individual, or otherwise to discriminate against any individual with respect to his compensation, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment, because of such individual’s race, color, religion, sex, or national origin; or
(2) to limit, segregate, or classify his employees or applicants for employment in any way which would deprive or tend to deprive any individual of employment opportunities or otherwise adversely affect his status as an employee, because of such individual’s race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.

In addition, the 2021 compliance manual of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) recognizes all types of religions and religious practices:

1. Religion
Title VII defines “religion” to include “all aspects of religious observance and practice as well as belief,” not just practices that are mandated or prohibited by a tenet of the individual’s faith.[18] Religion includes not only traditional, organized religions such as Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism, and Buddhism, but also religious beliefs that are new, uncommon, not part of a formal church or sect, only subscribed to by a small number of people, or that seem illogical or unreasonable to others.[19] Further, a person’s religious beliefs “need not be confined in either source or content to traditional or parochial concepts of religion.”[20] A belief is “religious” for Title VII purposes if it is “religious” in the person’s “own scheme of things,” i.e., it is a “sincere and meaningful” belief that “occupies a place in the life of its possessor parallel to that filled by . . . God.”[21] The Supreme Court has made it clear that it is not a court’s role to determine the reasonableness of an individual’s religious beliefs, and that “religious beliefs need not be acceptable, logical, consistent, or comprehensible to others in order to merit First Amendment protection.”[22] An employee’s belief, observance, or practice can be “religious” under Title VII even if the employee is affiliated with a religious group that does not espouse or recognize that individual’s belief, observance, or practice, or if few – or no – other people adhere to it.[23]

Religious beliefs include theistic beliefs as well as non-theistic “moral or ethical beliefs as to what is right and wrong which are sincerely held with the strength of traditional religious views.”[24] Although courts generally resolve doubts about particular beliefs in favor of finding that they are religious,[25] beliefs are not protected merely because they are strongly held. Rather, religion typically concerns “ultimate ideas” about “life, purpose, and death.”[26] 

Courts have looked for certain features to determine if an individual’s beliefs can be considered religious. As one court explained: “‘First, a religion addresses fundamental and ultimate questions having to do with deep and imponderable matters. Second, a religion is comprehensive in nature; it consists of a belief-system as opposed to an isolated teaching. Third, a religion often can be recognized by the presence of certain formal and external signs.’”[27]

ACT NOW FOR YOURSELF AND OTHERS: If you or a loved one are threatened with coerced “Covid vaccine” injections, a request for a religious exemption needs to be submitted in writing to one’s employer or college.

We already know religious exemptions are being honored at some state universities and some hospitals, such as Dignity Health. Here’s the effectiveness of straightforward religious exemption letters at CSU Chico:

Data breach at California college exposes student requests for COVID vaccine exemptions: Students who said they were Mormon, Catholic and Serbian Orthodox were approved for an exemption. Many who stated the vaccine had fetal tissue and “abortion-derived cells” were denied.

So you definitely want to focus on your religious convictions in your letter. Sometimes less is more. Rest assured this strategy is so strong, even the tyrannical Biden & Co. acknowledges religious exemptions to “the jab”:

Pentagon releases religious exemption guidelines for bypassing mandatory vaccine: The Pentagon on Tuesday released guidelines for how service members could request a religious exemption in lieu of getting the coronavirus vaccine. By mid-September, all active-duty forces in the military will be required to get shots in their arms to counter the coronavirus as cases continue to once again increase nationwide. “There is a religious exemption possibility for any mandatory vaccine, and there’s a process that we go through to counsel the individual both from a medical and from a command perspective about using a religious exemption,” Pentagon press secretary John Kirby said Tuesday.

Here are religious exemption options SaveCalifornia.com knows of:

1. Loving, constitutional Pastor Greg Fairrington of Destiny Christian Church in Rocklin (Placer County) has written (with the help of his attorneys) and signed a religious-exemption letter, which he’s freely giving to people who go through a process.

The latest instructions (Sept. 7) on the church’s website are: “Need a Religious Exemption? We are no longer offering religious exemptions during service. To apply for a religious exemption form, please click here.”

See these helpful links on how individuals can compose their own letter requesting a religious exemption from their employers and universities:

2. Letter template created by Advocates for Faith & Freedom

3. Sample letter created by The Rutherford Institute

4. Titus Institute: Religious exemption process | if your request is denied

5. America’s Frontline Doctors: Good information on religious exemptions

IMPORTANT: You should also seek a low-cost or pro-bono attorney or legal group that will expertly represent you if your employer or college or university doesn’t exempt you from the jab. Among legal groups representing Americans right now are Liberty Counsel, The Rutherford Institute, and Advocates for Faith & Freedom.

But try your religious exemption, which has a good chance of success to protect you from “the jab,” which has already killed tens of thousands of people.
