Gov. Newsom and the Democrats are making you poorer

Sunday, February 24, 2019, 1:50 pm | Randy Thomasson


It was a privilege to rally with around 250 California conservatives Feb. 23 on the steps of the State Capitol.

Rally speakers accurately blamed new Gov. Gavin Newsom and other immoral Democrat politicians for the chronic problems in California, and I held up a large sign warning that “Gov. Newsom wants to jack up your taxes and fees.” See the short video (2:20) of speaker Erin Cruz and then see me walking up with my powerful sign.

Because Newsom has already proposed taxing your drinking water. And Newsom’s also threatening Californians with new taxes on currently untaxed small business services (pool cleaning, lawn care, house cleaning, etc.) as well as threatening job-providers that own commercial property with higher property taxes (eliminating Proposition 13’s protections).

See what the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association and the California Taxpayers Association say about the negative consequences of all this.

The election of the uber-liberal Gavin Newsom has stunned, angered, and awakened California conservatives. And rightfully concerned they are, because of Newsom’s dreams of taxing drinking water and imposing new taxes on very small businesses and upon job-providers who own commercial property. Gavin Newsom is proving once again that Democrat politicians aren’t ‘for the poor,’ but that Democrats make you poor.

“The power to tax is the power to destroy.”

On abortion, California is as bad, and even worse, than New York

People with an intact conscience are rightly horrified with the State of New York passing a new law guaranteeing death to unwanted preborn babies, up to the moment before birth.

Life News reports: “It goes beyond Roe v. Wade, allowing unborn babies to be aborted even when the U.S. Supreme Court has said states may restrict abortions. Late-term abortions, which once were illegal in New York, will be allowed, and non-doctors will be allowed to perform them. The law also redefines a ‘person’ as ‘a human being who has been born and is alive,’ and describes abortion as a ‘fundamental right.’

Yet California is as bad — and even worse. In California, taxpayers are forced to pay for abortions of preborn babies at any stage of pregnancy, without any regard for the girl or mother’s age, number of prior abortions, ability to pay, or immigration status.

And in California, there’s no regulation of or reporting of abortions. The Democrat politicians who have virtually controlled the California Legislature for 60 years now have created a situation where even babies born alive can be killed, because we officially look away.

Now, some might point to “good” California abortion laws that:

1. Prohibit abortion of a “viable” fetus “when, in the good faith medical judgment of a physician, on the particular facts of the case before that physician, there is a reasonable likelihood of the fetus’ sustained survival outside the uterus without the application of extraordinary medical measures.”

But this is no protection at all for preborn babies who could survive if given care. Because the very next deceptive section of the state law overrides any concern for the “viable fetus” by allowing an abortionist to justify any abortion for any reason, due to the mother’s “health” (under 1973’s Doe v. Bolton, “health” means abortion for any reason):

123466. The state may not deny or interfere with a woman’s right to choose or obtain an abortion prior to viability of the fetus, or when the abortion is necessary to protect the life or health of the woman.

So you see it’s a word game. Insert the word “health,” and you effectively permit abortion for any reason until birth.

2. Require aborted babies born alive to be given life-saving medical treatment: 123435. The rights to medical treatment of an infant prematurely born alive in the course of an abortion shall be the same as the rights of an infant of similar medical status prematurely born spontaneously.

Sounds good, right? Yet babies surviving abortions in California are frequently murdered at the abortion clinic. Since state law does not require regulation or inspection of abortion clinics, or even reporting of the number and type of abortions, there’s no real enforcement to protect babies born alive when an abortion has “failed.”

No reporting of abortions in California
No inspections to ensure women’s health and safety in California
Baby’s heart beating, still killed in San Jose, California
In 2013, a new law permitted abortions by non-physicians
In 2013, all state regulation of abortion services were eliminated

So the next time you talk to a person who’s concerned about New York or babies being killed, remind them that Democrat politicians have made California “The Abortion State,” with more babies killed here than in any other state, even if they survive an abortion.

For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.
Psalm 139:13-16

You can overcome pro-abortion lies with pro-life facts

Wednesday, January 23, 2019, 9:05 am | Randy Thomasson

In California, the most dangerous place for a child is in his or her mother’s womb. Ironically, you’re safer as a convicted murderer on “death row” in San Quentin, because our Democrat-controlled State will pay to feed, clothe, and protect you there, but will pay to literally tear you apart in the God-designed sanctuary of your mother’s womb.

The state’s self-appointed guardian of abortion is the California Supreme Court. In 1981, the state high court redefined the California Constitution’s guarantee of paperwork privacy to mean “abortion,” and redefined “medical care” to include “abortion,” coldly declaring that “the asserted state interest in protecting fetal life cannot constitutionally claim priority over the woman’s fundamental right of procreative choice.”

In other words, no matter a girl or woman’s age, ability to pay, or number of prior abortions, the State of California will spend your taxpayer dollars to kill unwanted, preborn babies. If that wasn’t clear enough, the California Supreme Court, in 1997, struck down the parental consent for abortion law passed by the State Legislature by declaring that it violated the California Constitution’s right to “privacy.” Again, a green light to “privately” murder the smallest human beings!

Because the Liberal Left and the state bureaucracy is trying so hard to hide the truth about the humanity of babies in the womb, you have power when you expose the lie. Please see and share these pro-life facts:
