QUOTE OF THE WEEK: "Well, the trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so." —Ronald Reagan (this quote is too good to change)
"To preserve [the] independence [of the people,] we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude."—Thomas Jefferson to Samuel Kercheval, 1816

Together, we rocked the entire
California Republican Party convention over the weekend, leaving zero doubt who
the clear front-runner in the primary for Governor
Thanks to your hard work and energy, the media
concluded that we walked away the winner in every way:
The LA Times headline read,
“Tim Donnelly gets unofficial endorsement at GOP convention”, and the article
called it a “resounding” decision.
The Sacramento Bee said,
"This is Tim Donnelly's crowd.”
We even made the Drudge Report & Huffington
Post on Sunday!
We had higher energy, larger crowds, louder applause,
more media coverage, and visibly greater support among grassroots activists,
delegates, and Republican primary voters alike.
bottom line: We are here because of your generous sacrifices. From day
one, we have run this campaign on a shoestring budget and done far more with far
less in order to give you the best return on your investment.
California can't afford four more years of Jerry
Brown: he has depressed economic growth, raised taxes, and we are now
number one in everything we don't want to be. We have the highest income
tax, regions with high unemployment and the highest poverty rate despite
spending more money on government assistance than any other state.
the end, we continue to bring Republicans together through our pro-liberty
message and concise plan to simply get government out of the way. Our
goal now is to unite Californians under a banner of liberty and we don't care
what party they used to call home. All we care about is if they are
willing to sacrifice some of their time and resources to make California golden
After the fantastic response at the convention, there is no
doubt in my mind we are going to win this primary and take back the Governor’s
office come November.
Our campaign is grabbing all the constituencies
needed to win; however, I truly need your help. I would not ask if it wasn’t so
important. We are facing a well-funded primary without even mentioning Jerry
Brown and his liberal allies.
Together, we can use the momentum gained
at the convention to put the people back in charge of our Golden
Attached is a flyer for a proposed plan to
not only get reform on the ballot in November but to also raise significant sums
We are looking for feedback on the feasibility of this plan. We have the
petitions; we will supply collateral material, walk lists, door hangers, etc.
All we need are the grassroots to get this done. Whether or not you agree
with the Six States, the fact is we should have this debate and it is far better
for those funds to be spent on building a grassroots effort instead of having
these funds go to paid signature gatherers.
Both of these initiatives will generate worthwhile debate about the
direction of this state. If we are serious about real reform, not tinkering
around the edges (or rearranging the deck chairs), we need to do this NOW.
Sitting in court on Friday,
I was struck by the casual way that the Secretary of State's attorney argued to
disenfranchise thousands of people. He seemed to be unmoved by the reality of
what would happen if the court accepted his arguments.
As the attorney for Privacy
For All Students described improperly rejected signatures and the need for
access to the documents to show that the referendum actually qualified, the
State lawyer (paid by the tax payers) almost seemed bored.
And apparently this
attorney is not alone in his contempt for the rights of the voters. Other
government attorneys are echoing his arguments even while they are compensated
by the voters they wish to disenfranchise. A number of counties have filed
legal objections to producing documents that would shine a light on the
signatures improperly rejected. Because so many of you have asked about your
county, below I will note the counties that are helping hide the process that
eliminated more than one out of every five signatures.
Recently I shared the
candid statement of a county registrar who said that in his eighteen years in
that position, this was the first time that a proponent of a referendum had ever
asked to inspect the results. The law is clear. It is the right of the
referendum proponent to examine the rejected signatures. Why? In order to
challenge improper results.
I have also shared some of
the things we have found already. With persistence we have pushed through the
many obstacles to actually see rejected signatures and other documents in some
We have witnessed
signatures that were thrown out because the county claims that the signer
was not registered even though a
registration is in the county data base.
We have uncovered
signatures that were rejected because a county employee decided that the
signature is slightly different than the signature on the voter registration
card or the signature provided on an electronic pad at the DMV. (Remember the
Pacific Justice Institute attorney, Matt McReynolds, that had his signature
rejected because it was not a perfect match with his voter registration card.
In the years after Matt filled out that registration card, he went blind and can
no longer see his signature.)
Signatures have been
rejected because the print in the address section looked different than other print by
this signer or it looked too much
like the print of a husband or wife.
All of these wrong or
questionable decisions (and the resulting tens of thousands of rejected
signatures) have apparently been accepted in the past without protest. But with
our challenge, new and even more creative tactics have to be employed to hide
the evidence of mistake or abuse.
The Secretary of State's
attorney made it clear to the judge that he felt that the attorneys for the 58
counties should be involved in this process, and that we should delay until they
could take part.
Several county attorneys
anticipated the call to circle the wagons and have started to focus on one
very creative argument first advanced by the attorney for the Secretary of
State. They concede that the State may be required to provide certain
information about the signers that have been rejected. But before they provide
this information, we must mail to each of the 131,000 voters a "notice to
consumer". Of course, we cannot provide such a notice even if the law did
require this because they will not provide the contact information for the
These county attorneys
understand the impossibility of their request. Here is how one addressed the
issue in a response to a PFAS attorney:
I recognize, however, that
this is academic since compliance with those procedures would require access to
the very names and contact information that the County is not able to disclose
at this time.
First they produce an
inaccurate count. Then they frustrate our apparently unprecedented effort to
examine the evidence. Then they claim that privacy will not allow them to
provide the documents we need to take to court to challenge this. And
throughout all of this they are encouraging more taxpayer paid attorneys to join
the fight and see if they can overwhelm us with costs and stall
Please don't let them
This battle will be
costly and time consuming.
At one level, it is a
battle for the privacy and safety of our children that will be stripped away if
AB 1266 is the law. At a whole different level it is about an out of control
bureaucracy that believes that their efforts to disenfranchise thousands of
voters should be immune from challenge.
If you live in one of the
counties listed below that has already joined the Secretary of State in her
fight to hide the documents that will prove that the referendum qualified,
please donate to offset the costs of this battle. Even if your elections

California’s on-line voter registration system lacks sufficient
safeguards and enables voting fraud
Over 6,000 duplicate registrations generated
on line in just nine counties, with over 100 appearing to vote twice
on November 6, 2012.
SANTA CLARITA, CA. April 14,
2014 - Election Integrity Project (EIP), a citizen-funded nonpartisan
election oversight group, today reported on its analysis of 2012-2013 on-line
voter registrations in nine counties. California’s on-line registration system
was authorized by Governor Brown and launched September 19, 2012, one month
before the registration cut-off date for the 2012 Presidential Election. News
reports at that time suggested that on-line voter registration was implemented
to boost college-age registrations and help pass the Proposition 30 tax increase
that was on the ballot. More than 500,000 Californians registered on line during
EIP’s analyses of voter lists in nine counties show
that the on-line registration system lacks sufficient safeguards to prevent
duplications of existing voters. The organization found that 6,080
persons duplicated their voter registrations using the on-line system. Over
4,500 of these duplicates occurred in Los Angeles County. Unfortunately, the
duplications were not identified and cleared up by officials before the 2012
election and they were still on the counties’ books as of summer-fall 2013.
While voters may not have purposely duplicated their registrations, the system
should have prevented the duplication of already-registered persons.
addition to the 6,080 duplicates generated via the on-line system, 113
of these suspected duplicated registrants appear to have voted twice on November
6, 2012. Almost half of these suspected double voters were college age
(18-24), who were targeted for on line registration and Proposition 30 support
in that election.
EIP President Linda Paine stated, “With serious list
maintenance deficiencies in California counties and no single, statewide voter
registration database in place, it was shocking that the Governor chose to
authorize an online voter registration system that would potentially
disenfranchise legitimate voters by ultimately enabling double
EIP has submitted the duplicate registrations and suspected
double voters to county election officials for investigation. California’s chief
election officer, Secretary of State Debra Bowen, has also been notified. There
has been no response to EIP’s expressed concerns about the on-line voter
registration system from any election official, including Bowen and Los Angeles
Co. Registrar Dean Logan. Additionally, EIP knows of only one EIP-reported case
of unlawful voting that has been referred to law enforcement by election

Breitbart News reported yesterday that U.S.

election in Nebraska is now just four weeks away and conservatives must take
action right now to push Ben Sasse on to victory.
John McCain and Lindsey Graham are certainly free to
support their preferred candidate in this race, but so are the grassroots. We
need to help Ben Sasse. There is no telling how much money they will raise for
Shane Osborn so we must work especially hard to counter them.
Ben Sasse is the strongest candidate in this
race. He's a principled conservative who will support and defend the
Constitution. And he's not a career politician. In fact, this is the first time
he has run for political office.
Sasse is passionate about health care policy and is
exactly the kind of person we need to help repeal Obamacare and replace it with
market-based reforms that empower patients.
He released a new video this
week that shows why stopping Obamacare is such a personal issue for him and his
Ben Sasse has been
endorsed by leading conservative voices such as former Alaska Governor Sarah
Palin, U.S. Senator Mike Lee (R-UT), and radio talk show host Mark Levin. He's
also backed by conservative groups like SCF, Club for Growth, FreedomWorks, and
Gun Owners of America.
