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 2015
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).
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 Commissionhas 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.
HR692 The Default Prevention Act passed the House recently 235-194. Bill would make sure that the United States will not go into default and will honor its debts. Forwarded to the Senate and was authored by Rep. McClintock of N CA.HR 1314 - Two Year Budget Deal - Again it is “Kick the Can Down the Road”. The House and Senate approved the debt limit by $80 Billion in a new 2-year budget, conceived behind closed doors with the President, House and Senate Leaders. Guess they don’t know what the TEA in the TEA Party stands for. Congressman Hunter voted no. This budget extends this spending spree to mid March 2017, adding another year of Obama spending and an unlimited credit card.
HR 597 Restoring the Export Import Bank received new life in the House. 62 Republicans joined 177 Democrats in bringing the formerly defunded bank new taxpayer backing to the floor for a vote. Cong. Hunter voted in favor. Some call this more crony capitalism. A whole lot of lobbying was going on here. Is on the Senate calendar but may be wrapped into “must pass” legislation.
A House Select Investigative Panel of 8 members of Congress has been appointed to address the recent Planned Parenthood scandal as exposed in a series of undercover videos; Cong. Marsha Blackburn will Chair.
HR 3799 The Hearing Protection Act a bill aimed at removing suppressors from National Firearms Act oversight so Americans can more easily acquire them for hearing protection while target shooting or hunting. Obama was in Chicago recently to address more gun control.
Privacy for All or Bathroom Bill 2.0 – Signatures are still needed on petitions and we must have all signatures submitted by Nov. 20th.
Just this week Denair CA High School, (Stanislaus County), was featured on the news for having their first "transgender" cheerleader. Will the girls on the squad be forced into co-ed locker rooms and showers with this male student? Qualifying Privacy for All and securing voter approval will repeal the existing legislation.
Special Session for Fixing the Roads - Not much has developed to date. Gov. Brown has proposed a yearly funding package for the roads of $3.6 billion. The package includes a 6-cent gasoline tax increase, an 11-cent diesel tax increase — both tied to inflation — a $65 car fee and cap-and-trade funds. His proposal is only about half what legislative Democrats and a coalition of business, labor and construction groups have called for.
proposed to include cap-and-trade money. The money would be used
directly for roads. The governor’s plan would funnel cap-and-
trade dollars to bus lanes and rail. This proposal would also
trim CalTrans staff, direct weight fees and other transportation
monies exclusively for roads and employ other methods
without raising taxes.
Ramona Tea’d LegislationSeptember, 2015
House Resolution 385 was introduced late in July. It will vacate the Speakers Chair in the House based on seven contentious issues. This is unusual and has not been used in the House since 1910.
The Export-Import Bank lobbyists and allies in Congress will not give up on renewing the Bank’s Charter. Bank renewal was added to the federal Transportation bill but was defeated before the recess. It is rumored to be returning attached to must pass legislation. Boeing, the bank’s largest firm has spent $9.3 Million lobbying our Congress between April 1st and June 30th. We, the U.S. taxpayer make up the bad loans.
State – The regular session ends 9/11/15. October 11th is the last day for Gov. Brown to sign bills passed on or before Sept. 11th. Brown has called a special session to consider transportation and health issues.
Multiple proposals to raise taxes are coming so hang on to your wallet. The following two will be on the November 2016 ballot:
Senate Constitutional Amendment 5 will take away Proposition 13 protections from business owners.
Assembly Constitutional Amendment 4, if passed, will lower the two-thirds vote requirement for local tax increases.
The Legislature is also considering transportation taxes, tobacco taxes, managed care taxes, new real estate transaction fees, and “cap and trade” fees.
Some Good News: Sacramento County Superior Court recently ruled granting “class status” to the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association’s lawsuit against the California Fire Prevention Fee. Hopefully the court will strike down this illegal tax and force the state to issue refunds. Keep your paperwork handy.
SB350 The Gasoline Restriction Act of 2015 will mandate a 50% increase in energy-efficiency standards, a 50% reduction in gasoline and diesel fuel, and a 50% increase in investment of renewable energy. Not only are these standards impossible to meet by the year 2030 but they enable a non-elected government agency, the California Air Resources Board, to implement the regulations. To meet the mandate, CARB will be able to ration gas, place mobility restrictions on state residents, place surcharges on family mini-vans, trucks, and SUV’s, and even monitor individuals’ fuel consumption records.
SB16 California Gas Tax increase as proposed would raise the CA gas tax from 42 cents/per gallon to 54 cents per/gallon then add the cap and trade.10 cents, plus the federal tax of 18 cents/per gallon for a total of 82 cents if adopted. CA gas tax has not been raised since 1994. Purpose is road repair.
Privacy For All Initiative.
Several years ago our
legislature passed AB1266 which allowed students who felt more
like the opposite sex to use the bathroom, shower, locker
facilities and be on the sports teams of the way they felt that
day, week, month or year. We called it the “Bathroom Bill” and
worked hard gathering signatures of CA voters. However
many of the signatures were disqualified and the total was not
enough to be on the 2014 ballot. Now this group has again
brought a petition drive forward for signatures, called the
Privacy For All initiative. It covers facilities in all
government buildings and states that persons must use the
bathroom etc. of their biological birth. This will now
hopefully prevent predators from using opposite sex facilities
in parks, schools, courthouses etc. We need 500,000 valid
signatures by November 15th. If you can help with this
project please let us know.
July Ramona Tea’d Legislation Updated 9/1/15
HR3009 Enforce the Law for Sanctuary Cities Act authored by Cong. Hunter passed the House on Thursday 241-179.The bill withholds funding to any state or locality that does not cooperate with EXISTING federal immigration law.
HR 3139 The Semper Fi Act was introduced on Tuesday. It allows the military to authorize those who work at recruiting centers to be armed and permits security enhancements at those facilities. Also by Cong. Hunter.
HR 3115 The Enhanced Safety & Military Act would lift a directive issued by the Pentagon over 20 years ago that barred most servicemen from carrying firearms at military installations.
S1814 Stop Sanctuary Cities Actwould make sanctuary cities ineligible to receive funds under the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program, which helps offset the cost to states and local jurisdictions for jailing illegal immigrants who commit crimes. They have 180 days to comply or lose their eligibility.
S1842 The Protecting American Lives Act was introduced on Thursday.It requires state and local jurisdictions to notify the federal government when a criminal alien is in their custody; it will withhold funds from any local jurisdiction that releases an alien after a federal detainer has been placed on them; and it will establish a 5-year minimum prison sentence for deported aliens who attempt to illegally re-enter the United States.
S1640 & HR1148 The Davis-Oliver Act in honor of the two deputy sheriffs killed in Northern California last year by and illegal immigrant.It prevents sanctuary jurisdictions from ignoring ICE detainers and releasing criminal aliens, it would also immunize state and local law enforcement officers who protect our communities by honoring detainers. It would significantly curtail ICE's practice of releasing tens of thousands of criminal aliens each year. These bills have passed several committee reviews and are being tweaked before final voting.
S1541 Transportation Empowerment Act would return control of highway decisions back to the states eliminating wasteful diversions and ensuring that highway dollars fund highways. This fund expires July 31st. We need to watch this, as it is rumored that the Export-Import Bank authorization, which expired on June 30th will be added to this Transportation bill. Has been referred to the Committee on Finance.
S1598 & HR2802 First Amendment Defense Act would prohibit the federal government from targeting individuals or organizations that believe marriage is the union of one man and one woman.

"Our mission is to provide a forum to address grievances and concerns regarding the excessive spending, taxation and social engineering that we believe is rampant in federal, state and local governments.
We are also concerned about the threat to our national sovereignty and lack of border security.
We will accomplish this through education, information and responsible activism.
We further commit ourselves to do this in a manner that is both responsible and respectful as we express our Constitutional right to peacefully assemble and to petition our government.
We further believe that it is imperative that our government return to a Constitutional Republic as it was intended. This can only happen if the people of the United States of America participate in a government that is

The American Republic is based on Judeo-Christian principles. The Rights to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness asserted in the Declaration of Independence are self evident truths based on Natural Law, and as such are irrevocable. The founding principles of limited government and freedom from tyranny are what made ours the most prosperous, and most generous, nation of all time. It is to these principles that we must return in order to preserve the Union.

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 Amazon.com for $10. (Make sure to watch Chapter #16 (Fuzzy Numbers) to see how the government manipulates the economic numbers it reports.) http://www.chrismartenson.com/crashcourse
Ben Bernanke was Wrong Either the Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board knew and was lying, or he is incompetent. Go to YouTube.com 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. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9QpD64GUoXw
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. http://www.amazon.com/Masters--International-Bankers-Control-America/dp/B0018IPKCG/ref=sr_1_1?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1301771349&sr=1-1

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. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V1smgz-px1Q&feature=related
Below is a link to a video about the silver certificates JKF had issued.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ggADLt4s4pM
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.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XY02Qkuc_f8
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.
