|I need you to be aware of an emergency situation in California.
After all, those of us in the faith community cannot just be focused on the Presidential election.
Here’s what’s going on — there’s currently an effort underway in the California Senate (SB 1146) to strip the state’s faith-based colleges and universities from operating in ways that are consistent with their religious missions. This bill could be the end of Christian education in California. Trust me, it won’t stop there. It will spread across America.
The bill has already passed the State Senate and will soon be voted on by the House.
Here is what it will do…
If the state deems a school’s actions to be discriminatory (barring coed dorms, requiring chapel or holding prayer, even having separate bathrooms for men and women, for example) these institutions will no longer be protected. They’ll become a target for public shaming, lawsuits, you name it. Students will lose state aid.
This matters. It matters because it’s a direct assault on the First Amendment protection for religious freedom. It is totally unprecedented.
Let me say it again, with all of us focused on the Presidential election, this bill could slide through and threaten the future of Christian education in America.
You’ll be happy to know that My Faith Votes is working on this issue directly with college and university presidents throughout California, and frankly they need your help.
They are fighting back as best they can, but it’s expensive, and they’ve got a huge job to do. They’re trying to provide a quality education. That’s all.
You may not think this matters to you if you don’t live in California. But it does. This is not just a California issue. It’s an American issue. It’s about standing up for the Constitution, and making an impact where we can. If it passes, it will not be long before we are fighting this in every state.
I thank you for your time today, and I hope we can count on your support.

I had absolutely no time to do any “reporting” because there was just NO time and every minute was taken but I hoped that everyone was able to see some of the Platform Committee questions. On occasion, there were some profound statements and history.

“It, is, we are told, traditional that when Bill Clinton knows that a Cabinet secretary or another [Secret Service] protectee….is in the area, he’ll say, ‘Oh, let me say hello.’…Met with her [Loretta Lynch] for about 30 minutes. She said it was completely social. They talked about grandchildren. But this has led to a lot of conspiracy theories that even before Hillary Clinton has been interviewed by the FBI, to our knowledge, that somehow this is Bill Clinton talking to Loretta Lynch about clearing Hillary Clinton of the e-mail investigation.”

Do ya think they really talked about their grandchildren for 30 minutes after she waited for him?

JULY 12, 2016Article V con con defeated Article V position destroyed overhwelimingly by voice vote.
“It’s high time to tell the miscreants and traitors to get out of our house”
“Welcome to 2016— the revolutionary Year of the Fire Monkey. With Mars showing its glowing red ever so brightly in the night sky, even the heavens are conspiring with the everintensifying sentiments of American rebellion. The whole world is looking to the U.S. citizenry as the last bulwark still standing — quite feebly, albeit — in defense of national sovereignty and personal freedom. Were the USA to fall to a conspicuous totalitarian tyranny as is planned by the NWO agenda, the whole world will be plunged into the same chaos as created by the European Union dictatorship.”
“Just like 1776 it is again necessary for We the People to summon the courage and will and resourcefulness to take back what has been stolen.”
“If the United States of America is to, once again, be legitimately recognized as the “The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave” then the American become must become free and act brave.”
I am off to battle in Cleveland (in the Platform Committee). Please pray for me…..
The most important tenet of the Republican Party is limited government and maximum personal freedom. Our Founding Fathers understood the importance of unity, and although they didn’t agree on some things, they did agree on the most basic principles around which they united.
We support true Republican candidates, endorse in primaries and work to restore the Republican Party to the values and principles of the Party of Reagan.
Remember it is your right
