URGENT: AB 659 Assembly floor targets — please call now

Saturday, May 20, 2023, 5:08 pm | Randy Thomasson
Thank you for caring about children, parental rights, health, and your God-given liberties!

If you want to see the ineffective, harmful, tyrannical Gardasil bill (AB 659) stopped on the Assembly floor, and if you’ve already called your own assemblymember and Democrat Akilah Weber, here are a bunch of “swing votes” who need a flood of calls this weekend. Because the Assembly floor vote on AB 659 could be as soon as Monday afternoon!

In the 80-member California Assembly, there are 62 Democrats (a 3/4ths supermajority). Because a majority vote to pass bills is 41, our side must pull off at least 22 Democrats.

Please leave anonymous voicemails this weekend and by 8am Monday for some or all of the deciding votes and “swing votes” that SaveCalifornia.com has identified.

Anonymous, because messages where you reveal you live outside the district will be “trashed.” So be wise, strategic, and anonymous when you leave voicemails anytime this weekend. If you can participate, your calls should take less than a minute each!

Tell these Democrat assemblymembers, “Oppose AB 659, which falsely claims risky Gardasil shots are mandated. Stop misleading children and young adults and their families — defeat this dishonest bill.”

“Is There Objective Evidence that the Current HPV Vaccination Programs are not Justified?”
Session 7, 4th International Symposium on Vaccines in Leipzig, Germany (April 2016)
From the session’s conclusion:
Q: Is it ethical to put young women at risk of death or a disabling autoimmune disease at a pre-adolescent age for a vaccine that has not yet prevented a single case of cervical cancer, a disease that may develop 20-30 years after exposure to HPV, when the same can be prevented with regular Pap screening which carries no risks?
A: We don’t know if it can offer any long-term clinical benefit for a disease that is safely preventable through other methods. 

ALERT: Can the harmful Gardasil bill be stopped?

Thursday, May 18, 2023, 12:32 pm | Randy Thomasson

As expected, the tyrannical Gardasil bill (AB 659) has passed the Democrats’ Assembly Appropriations Committee and has been sent to the Assembly floor.

Can this awful bill pushing unneeded, ineffective, harmful jabs upon children at both public and private schools — including church schools — be stopped? Perhaps. Here’s why:

1. AB 659 is blatantly deceptive: As amended April 12, AB 659 falsely threatens pre-teens, teens, and college students by purporting “it is the public policy of the state” that you “are expected” to be jabbed with Gardasil — when, legally, these shots would not be “required.” AB 659 is dishonest and misleading!

2. The bill had trouble being scheduled for committee: After being deceptively amended in order to pass the Health Committee, AB 659 languished for two weeks in the Appropriations Committee, having two hearings in a row “postponed.”

3. A key Democrat has abstained twice: Akilah Weber of San Diego, an OB-GYN, purposefully abstained twice in committee — on May 3 in the Health Committee and on May 17 in the Appropriations Committee. She apparently doesn’t want an HPV mandate and doesn’t like AB 659’s deception.

Bottom line, this bill is a Frankensteinian mess that never should have passed one committee, let alone two. Honest legislators should be embarrassed to vote for it.

So, because of bad substance and bad style, AB 659 could be stopped if enough Democrats mimic Weber’s abstentions on the Assembly floor.

Will you participate? With your help, AB 659 might be defeated on the Assembly floor before June 2, the last day for bills to pass their house of origin.


Step 1: Call or email your own California state assemblymember. Confirm who’s yours here. When you make contact, identify yourself, since you live in the district. Urge your assemblymember to “Oppose AB 659, which falsely claims risky Gardasil shots are mandated. Stop misleading children and young adults and their families — kill this bad bill.”

If your assemblymember is a Republican, please add, “You need to stand and speak on the Assembly floor. Parents are counting on you to expose AB 659.”

Step 2: Leave your anonymous, afterhours voicemail messages (weekdays 7pm to 8am and all weekend) for Akilah Weber at her two offices, 619-465-7903 and 916-319-2079. In your genuinely appreciative recorded message, say, “Thank you for not supporting AB 659. On the floor, please stand and speak against this misleading bill.”

The Assembly floor vote on AB 659 could be as soon as the afternoon of Monday, May 22.

Before Gardasil my daughter was an outgoing, super funny, confident, soccer athlete, practicing 3-4 hrs a day. She planned to play HS soccer and move on to college soccer. Autumn was a free spirit and so full of life. Her love for animals and passion to save the mistreated drove her to want to open her own animal shelter. She had dreams, goals and a plan. That is until she had the Gardasil vaccine. In January of 2010 she began the series of Gardasil shots. Her second shot was on 3/31 and by 5/10 we had her back to the doctors due to shortness of breath, along with horrible rib and back pain. From then on, our nightmare just kept getting worse.

Who will take on the fentanyl pushers?

Saturday, May 13, 2023, 1:17 pm | Randy Thomasson

It’s becoming clear to concerned parents and grandparents that the ruling Democrats in California are all talk and no action on the present danger of fentanyl. Because every chance they’ve had, the ruling Democrats have killed bills going after drug traffickers.

SaveCalifornia.com is helping blow the whistle on this serious situation. These three slides tell you the problem and who’s at fault:

Too bad this isn’t an election year, so that some Democrats would be more afraid of coddling fentanyl pushers. They think voters have short memories. On this cross-over, killer issue, will you help prove them wrong?

Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good.
The Bible, Romans 12:9
