UPDATE: Dems attack parents + what to do now

Thursday, September 7, 2023, 5:59 pm | Randy Thomasson

You’ve probably already heard that the ruling Democrats in the California State Senate on Wednesday passed 2 big anti-parent bills: AB 665 coercively emancipating 12-year-olds for any reason, and AB 957 discriminating against religious parents in child custody cases.

But do you know why 30 Democrats voted for AB 957 and 31 Democrats approved AB 665?

1. Because Democrat politicians actually oppose parents’ rights: With their votes and even their words — especially on the Assembly floor this year — Democrat Party legislators increasingly believe parents “get in the way” of the Democrats’ “LGBTQIA+” and abortion (baby-killing) agendas. This subversive philosophy was strengthened last year when SB 866 initially passed the State Senate, making it “easier” for them to trample parental rights.

2. Because Democrat politicians prostitute themselves to “LGBTQIA+”: Both bills, especially AB 957, were sold to the ruling Democrats as benefitting children who “identify” as another “gender.” Experts at playing the “LGBTQIA+ card,” Democrat bosses twisted the arms of 4 Democrats who, June 13 in the Senate Judiciary Committee, had demanded a religious-freedom amendment as a condition to support AB 957 on the floor. Yet no religious accommodation was put in the bill, since those 4 Democrats were reminded how the “LGBTQIA+” agenda supersedes everything. And with AB 665, Democrat state senators were sold how this somehow benefitted “LGBT youth.” You see, in order to capture kids, their perversity agenda must squash God-given parental rights, every time.

3. Because Democrat politicians are professional liars: Over the years, I’ve repeatedly seen Democrat legislators draft deceitful bills, redefine and misdefine words, break their promises, and arrogantly claim what’s true is false and what’s false is true. AB 665 author Wendy Carrillo falsely claimed her bill never threatened parents, and said AB 665 is for “homeless youth,” when that’s not even a condition of her bill. And AB 957 author Lori Wilson claimed religious parents would never have their children taken away, that her judicial mandate is not a mandate, and that she’d “work” with the Judiciary Committee chair to amend AB 957 to accommodate religious parents — but these were all lies.


You can have practical hope because Gavin Newsom is running for president and has a $31.5 BILLION state budget deficit hanging over him. So please call and email him to remind him how unpopular AB 665 and AB 957 are.

1. Please call Newsom’s constituent services 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 Governor Newsom to veto the anti-parent bills AB 665 and AB 957.”

2. Also use Newsom’s web form to oppose both bills.

The California State Legislature will adjourn its 2023 session on September 14; the governor will have until October 14 to sign or veto bills.

Democratic governors don’t tend to jump at the chance for a sit-down interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News. They also don’t tend to do tours of states they consider hostile to their own, like Florida. But then there’s California’s Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom. He prefers the national stage to dealing with the rampant dysfunction happening in his own state. And while Newsom claims he isn’t running for president, the evidence suggests he actually is.
