February 2016
Sacramento, California

May 23rd is last day to register to vote for a Republican Presidential Candidate. Your vote may be very important if the Republicans have a brokered convention.

Do You Want Water or Do You Want the Train??
It’s your decision. We have petitions today for the Water4All Constitutional Amendment sponsored by the CA Water Alliance, a non-profit. Needed are 585,407 valid signatures to qualify for the Nov. Ballot. There are nine signatures per petition and petitions cannot be electronically produced or photocopied. The initiative puts people and food first when it comes to using water, on the very day it is passed. In addition, the initiative begins the process of fixing our long-term water problems by increasing storage capacity for all water uses — families, farms and the environment — and it does so without raising taxes.
“During the month of January 208,000 acre feet was lost to the ocean
That’s enough to supply 462,000 families for a year
Resulting in 69,000 acres of fallowed farmland and 16,000 lost jobs”
In Nov. 2014, voters passed a $2.7 billion Water Bond for improved water storage. Gov. Brown says he will think about it next year. Adding the water bond money and the redirecting the remaining $8 billion from the train, it will provide over $10 billion dedicated for water storage and projects without increasing any taxes. Sallie is taking signatures in the back today.

June Ballot
There will be only one proposition on the June ballot – Prop 50. It will amend the state constitution so that either chamber of the CA legislature, by a 2/3 vote, can suspend a member of that body without pay or benefits.

Schools to Release Student Data
CA Schools will be releasing student data to an organization based on a judicial decision and lawsuit. This covers any student between Jan. 1,2008 and now. The database contains students’ names, social security numbers, home addresses, course information, behavior and discipline information, progress reports, mental health and medical information, along with suspensions, expulsions and more. Adult students and parents can opt out. There are a few of the forms available at the back. Forms are due April 1st.

AB 2459 will increase transparency in gun sales by requiring all gun transactions be video recorded, ban residential gun sales, require gun dealers to hold insurance and provide the Attorney General appropriate powers to enforce.

ALERT! New Tax Proposed by SANDAG
San Diego County Association of Governments (SANDAG at proposes a half-cent tax increase that will be on an upcoming 2016 ballot and needing 2/3 (66%) voter approval. This would raise $18 billion for the next 40 years for expenditures yet to be determined. The San Diego Republican organizations have already opposed this tax increase.

Washington D.C.

Let’s support Three Anti-Terrorism Bills
Currently, there are three important pieces of legislation involving terrorism that have been reported out of House committees and recommended for further action by Congress. All concern the threat of terrorism:
HR 4401 Amplifying Local Efforts To Root Out Terror Act of 2016 provides for training of local law enforcement re our domestic terror threat.
HR 4403 Enhancing Overseas Travel Vetting Act provides for the setting up of a database for vetting travelers against a watch list.
HR 4408 National Strategy To Combat Terror Travel Act of 2016 requires that the Administration actually formulate a strategy against terror travel.
Related was HR 4038 Expanded Vetting Processes for Refugees and both Feinstein and Boxer voted No in the cloture vote.
Two Immigration Bills S2193 Kate’s Law and S1762 The Establishing Mandatory Minimums Illegal Reentry Act are similar and both do the same thing – increase penalties for those who illegally re-enter the country after being removed.

January 2016
Sacramento, California

Senate 680 is a bill that would eliminate the sales tax on new electric automobiles manufactured in California for out-of-state buyers. The goal is attracting customers who come for the car and stay to see the sites. This would benefit a small group of vehicle companies but primarily Tesla. It is an experiment and would expire in 2020. Passed the Senate and is headed to the Assembly.

SB869 explicitly requires that any person who leaves a handgun in a vehicle must lock the handgun in the vehicle’s trunk, or place it in a locked container that is out of plain sight in the car. Prompted by the
shooting of Kate Steinle last July.

AB 67 would require retail and grocery stores with 500 or more employees to pay their workers twice their regular wage for hours worked on Thanksgiving. Passed the Assembly now to the Senate.

Gov. Brown’s proposed 2016-17 Budget weighs in at $122.6 Billion and is at least $10 billion more than last year. Good is $2 billion more than required to the reserve fund. In May he will issue a revised budget that is the real deal. Proposal includes $500 million for the train to nowhere. Includes a new annual $65 vehicle road tax, another $10 tax on car registration and a new 11 cent increase on fuel used by truck drivers. This raises the cost of everything we buy. CA has the highest gas taxes in the nation and we are already spending a buck more per gallon for gas than the rest of the nation.
The California Water Priorities Ballot Measure or Water 4 All was kicked off January 29th. A Constitutional Amendment sponsored by California Water Alliance, a non-profit and needs 585,407 bonafide signatures. Passing this in November would divert approximately $8 billion from the state’s high-speed rail project–including $2.7 billion from last year’s Proposition 1 water bond–toward water storage construction. I have ordered petitions; they cannot be photocopied or secured electronically, (9 signatures per petition).
HR4348 exempts persons who have valid concealed carry licenses issued in other states to be honored in Washington DC.

SJResolution 22 was vetoed by Pres. Obama recently. This would have voided a rule extending EPA regulatory authority over certain bodies of water. The Senate voted to override the veto, but only managed 52 of the 60 necessary votes. The EPA seeks to re-designate private ditches, gullies, and ponds as “navigable waterways”. This would deprive landowners of their property rights.

HR4038 The Safe Act initiated to provide additional screening and FBI involvement of Syrian and Iraq refugees to America did not receive enough votes in the Senate. It has failed.

Benghazi, both the movie and the book depict reality of three failures.
(1) Not to fortify or evacuate when threats increased,(2) the failure to protect or support Americans during the attack and third the lies to minimize the event.

The fee would apply to all cars, trucks and motorcycles, raising about $2 billion a year.

November & December
Washington D

HR1206 No Hires for the Delinquent IRS Act - Will prohibit the hiring of additional IRS employees until the Secretary of the Treasury certifies that no employee of the Internal Revenue Service has a seriously delinquent tax debt. Note: From Accounting Today – 304,565 federal employees are delinquent $3.54 Billion.

The Highway and Transportation Bill was approved for five years in November. The 1,300-page bill, paid for with gas tax revenue and a package of $70 billion in offsets from other areas of the federal budget, calls for spending approximately $205 billion on highways and $48 billion on transit projects over the next five years.

Every Student Success Act has also been approved and is the update of No Child Left Behind and may go on forever as it has no sunset provision. This was another “pass it so we can see what’s in it bill”, 1,031 pages. Spending will increase 2% per year. Schools will still need to meet the 95% testing requirements. Family and student data collection is only tapped down slightly and now we will have a federal pre-school program.

HR4197 & S2363 The State Refugee Security Act of 2015, is a companion bill to Senator Cruz’s legislation (S. 2363) which would protect states’ rights to refuse to participate in the federal refugee resettlement program. Under this proposed legislation, the federal government is required to notify a state at least 21 days prior to resettling a refugee there. During that period, if a state governor certifies that the federal government has not provided adequate assurances that the refugee does not present a security risk, the federal government is prohibited from resettling that refugee in the state.

Omnibus Bill Budget Travesty passed in December. Omnibus was 2,000+ pages and our representatives were allowed 48 hours to “find out what’s in it”. Our Congressman Hunter voted NO! This was another run up of the white flag to give the President most everything he wanted, ($1.1 Trillion).

Included are:
Illegal Alien Amnesty? Funded
Tax credits for illegal aliens? Funded
Obamacare? Funded
Obama’s illegal Executive Amnesty? Funded
Visas for un-vetted Muslim migrants, (refugees) to resettle in America? Funded
Obama’s green energy crony capitalism ? Funded…..
Sanctuary Cities? Funded
Big increase in H-2B visas to replace American workers? Funded
Catch & Release? Funded
Unaccompanied minors marching across the border? Funded
EPA control over all waters in the US? Funded
Elimination of coal generated electricity? Funded

A few positives were included and are:
Increases in defense spending? Funded
Extends health funding for the 9/11 responders? Funded
Blocks the IRS harassment of Americans because of their political views? Funded

S2434 Separation of Powers Restoration & Second Amendment Protection Act - To provide that any executive action that infringes on the powers and duties of Congress under section 8 of article I of the Constitution of the United States or on the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States has no force or effect, and to prohibit the use of funds for certain purposes. Source: Open Congress & Senator Rand Paul


High Speed Rail - Payments on construction costs will be paid from the CA state general fund, and based on a $100 billion total cost and a 5.0 percent interest rate, that comes out to $166 per year per California resident. Not that much? Put another way, based on roughly 6 million taxpaying households (about half of California’s 12 million households pay no taxes; their sales tax burden is largely offset by the earned income tax credit), construction of this train will cost $1,084 per taxpaying household per year …..and there is more….Rep. Jeff Denham (R-CA), chairman of the U.S. House Subcommittee on Railroads, Pipelines and Hazardous Materials, and an opponent of the near-$80 billion project, said he will call hearings in the beginning of 2016. The hearings have been triggered by a new report with higher budget projections from the project’s main management contractor.

Funds Cut for Utility Protection – The CA Public Utility Commission has defunded a program, ($350,000), established in 2014 by the Legislature to help make power plants safer from terrorist attacks. The program was prompted by two 2013 Incidents in the San Jose area.

The California Legislature will be back in session on Monday January 4th.
Taxing and spending measures will be under consideration.

The privacy For All, (Bathroom Bill 2.0) failed to secure enough signatures to be considered for the November 2016 ballot. Thanks to all of you who tried.

Tarek Fatah Speaks Out  If you never watch another video, please watch this one. The speaker is an Indian Muslim who is warning us to wake up. He has tremendous courage and pulls no punches on what is happening with Islamist fascism. Make sure you listen to the end of the tape where he says we now have three members of the Muslim Brotherhood in the White House (and names them).  He is elderly and in a wheel chair recovering from cancer treatments - perhaps that's why he has the courage to speak out. This is probably one of the most important messages of our day.

The Crash Course
  This is a must watch video. In it, Chris Martenson does an amazing job of explaining our economic problems in a clear, concise, easy to understand, and interesting way. Most importantly, you will learn why, with our debt based monetary system, hyperinflation is inevitable.  You can also buy the DVD from for $10. (Make sure to watch Chapter #16 (Fuzzy Numbers) to see how the government manipulates the economic numbers it reports.)

Ben Bernanke was Wrong  Either the Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board knew and was lying, or he is incompetent. Go to and search for ‘Ben Bernanke was wrong’ to see a series of videos where he tells us that there isn’t any real estate bubble.

The Money Masters  This is a documentary that was made in 1995. It describes in detail how the Federal Reserve operates to further its’ own interest to the detriment of the American people. It is a must watch.

You can also purchase a copy of the DVD from an Amazon third party seller.

How To Abolish The Federal Reserve  This link will take you to the place in The Money Masters video where the narrator explains exactly how we can go about ending the Federal Reserve. Go to and search for ‘How To Abolish The Federal Reserve’.)

Quantitative Easing Explained   This entertaining animated You Tube video has had almost 5 million hits. It highlights the absurdity and incompetence of the Federal Reserve.

The American Dream  This is a 30 minute animated cartoon that uses a story format to explain how the Federal Reserve is draining the wealth from our country and lowering our standard of living.

Money As Debt  This is an animated video explaining, in a very basic and entertaining way, how the Federal reserve operates.

President John F. Kennedy  If you have already viewed The Money Masters, you know that President Kennedy had issued billions of dollars of silver certificates striking at the heart of the Federal Reserve System.  The fact that Kennedy understood that the Federal Reserve System was inherently destructive and wanted to destroy it should not come as a surprise. The type business Kennedy’s father, Joseph Kennedy, chose to own at the very start of his career, was a bank. He, no doubt, educated his sons as to the nature of the Federal Reserve.  It also appears that JFK had knowledge of the forces described in The Naked Capitalist that are secretly working to enslave the world. The link below will take you to a video in which Kennedy speaks about these things. At that time, there wasn’t any way we could have understood what he meant. Listening to his words today, it is haunting as we realize what he was trying to warn us about.

Below is a link to a video about the silver certificates JKF had issued.

The link below will take you to a video of the day JFK was assassinated. No doubt you have seen this before. However, you’ve probably never noticed what the voiceover will point out.

President Kennedy was on to them and it very likely they were responsible for his assignation.  It is with respect and admiration that I include the below link inremembrance of John F. Kennedy.

America: Freedom to Fascism  This documentary, produced by Aaron Russo, reveals that the 16th Amendment authorizing a federal income tax is actually a fraudulent money grab by the banksters.

Reflections & Warnings: Interview with Aaron Russo  Aaron Russo reveals that, 9 months prior to 9-11, Nick Rockefeller told him that an "event" would soon occur that would change the world and cause us to invade Iraq and Afghanistan and how Rockefeller tried to recruit him to join the movement for a one world government.

Project Red Pill  (DVD 7 hours) –This DVD has the two Aaron Russo videos mentioned above plus The Obama Deception, The American Form of Government, Collectivism vs. Individualism, The Quigley Formula (2008), and Deception Was My Job. Available from Click on ‘Search any word’ and then enter ‘project red pill’ in the search bar to find it. You can download it for free or purchase the disc for $8.)
