Dear Fellow Patriot,

We did it. 
 
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 is.
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.
The 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.
 
Please consider a donation today of $100, $50, or even $25 to keep our momentum growing and these incredible results coming.
 
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.  
 
In 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 again.  
 
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 State.
 
YOU will decide this election and I'm so grateful for your help in making our front-runner status in the race all the more decisive.
 
Godspeed,
 
Tim

Attached is a flyer for a proposed plan to not only get reform on the ballot in November but to also raise significant sums for activists/groups.  

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.

This is a race.  Time is of the essence.  

Please get back to me right away.

Thank you.

John Cox

Update from our legal team after our court hearing on Friday, April 18, 2014

 

BREAKING NEWS: State Silences Voters on Co-ed Bathroom Bill

 

Sacramento, CA--In a major setback to the voice of voters in California, a Sacramento Superior Court judge ruled this afternoon in favor of a motion by the State to squelch subpoenas that sought records to verify invalidated signatures for the Co-ed Bathroom Bill referendum efforts.

 

Brad Dacus, President of Pacific Justice Institute, said, "We disagree with this lower court's decision, and we intend to challenge it by filing a writ so that we have the adequate opportunity to hold the government accountable for how they invalidated over 130,000 signatures. We know for a fact that egregious errors have been made, and we'll exhaust all legal remedies in order to ensure every valid signature is counted."

 

Of the roughly 620,000 signatures submitted to qualify the referendum, over 130,000 were thrown out. The Privacy of All Students coalition (PFAS) reviewed many disqualified signatures and found that there was abuse of discretion and arbitrary decisions by election officials, as well as disparaging inequalities for those who are blind or elderly. Of note, one of the lead attorneys on this case was surprised to find out his own signature was thrown out because it didn't match the one on file-something unfortunately plausible as he has gone blind over these last few years and can't see what he writes with a pen.

 

PJI is acting as lead counsel in the case, Gleason v. Bowen.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FROM EIP!!!

04/22/14

Call To Action

We have received word that once again legislators in Sacramento have no concern for legitimate voters...that means YOU...and are attempting to use rhetoric to stop AB1836 from becoming law. This law will protect Vote-by-Mail voters during this time of chaos in our election process.

We finally have a bill that will protect voters from illegitimate third party drop-offs and the committee members claim it is not needed. Show them the citizens of California SUPPORT this bill by taking action NOW...this morning by contacting the committee members…and this afternoon by going to the committee hearing with small signs indicating you SUPPORT AB1836. Even if there are too many to make it into the committee room, stay in the hall outside the door with your signs.

In the vein of citizen advocacy for fair and honest elections, we are calling on you to take immediate action TODAY!

Call, Fax, Email each committee member to SUPPORT AB1836.

Go to the Committee meeting at 1:30pm in Room 444 (arrive by 1pm because AB 1836 is first on the docket) of the Capitol TODAY to show support for AB1836.
 

Our Position

We, at the Election Integrity Project, Inc. (EIP),SUPPORT AB 1836 (Vote by Mail Ballots) because it calls for stricter requirements for those acting as a third party to drop off another voter’s vote by mail ballot at the polls on Election Day.

  1. By requiring the third party to provide proof of identification or residence, AB 1836 would provide the voters badly needed protection against theft and manipulation of vote by mail ballots. This protection is particularly important for those whom EIP research finds to be among the more vulnerable population groups, such as the sick, elderly, disabled, homeless, language challenged and young. 
  2. AB 1836 would greatly deter unlawful vote by mail ballot harvesting, and ensure that the drop-off agent is indeed the person designated by the voter, and no other. The bill also includes a clear way to resolve ballot rejection in the event that the third party cannot provide the required identification. Thus the voter’s ballot is better protected without danger of disenfranchisement due to the actions of another. 
  3. AB 1836 would help increase voter confidence that every vote is cast lawfully and, thereby, would increase voter participation in California elections. The protections of AB 1836 are strong, imposing no impediment to the voter while creating a layer of protection against ballot fraud. We look forward to working with you as this bill moves forward.

Habeas Corpus for Pelletiers: Trump Card or 'Hail Mary'?

On Monday, Liberty Counsel filed a petition for a writ of habeas corpus in the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court on behalf of Justina Pelletier. Justina Pelletier is the 15-year-old who was taken from her parents last February because doctors at Boston Children’s Hospital disagreed with her prior diagnosis of mitochondrial disease. But is the habeas corpus a trump card, or more like a ‘Hail Mary’ pass?

Habeas corpus demands a high standard, a very high standard,” ParentalRights.org president Michael Farris explains. “It is very rarely used. It is difficult to prove, to meet the standard.” But then he adds, “It’s for cases like this.”

The concept of habeas corpus, which in Latin means “you have the body,” dates back to the English Magna Carta, which turns 800 next year. A writ of habeas corpus is an order issued by a court to an agent of the state, to present a prisoner or ward at a certain date and time, and to be prepared to defend its legal decision to hold that person in custody.

In this case, Liberty Counsel is asking the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court to order the Department of Children and Families (DCF) to bring Justina to court and defend its actions in keeping her from her parents for more than a year. If DCF fails to do so, Justina must be returned to her parents on the spot.

So is it a trump card or a ‘Hail Mary’? In some ways it is both.

The habeas corpus is like a trump card in that it moves Justina’s case out of the court of judge Joseph Johnston, who has repeatedly kept Justina from her parents (though, as Liberty Counsel points out, never in a written order as required by state law). As an added advantage, a habeas corpus petition is also likely to be heard sooner than an appeal would be.

It is like a ‘Hail Mary’ in that success can be hard to achieve. As Farris pointed out, the standard is very high. The new court would have to find that DCF has essentially no reason whatever to take Justina out of her parents’ care. In this instance, from a lot of angles that seems to be exactly the case. But getting the judge to agree could prove a long shot.

It is not like a ‘Hail Mary,’ however, in one key respect: In football, that desperate pass play comes at the end of the game when there is no time for any other option. A failed ‘Hail Mary’ means a loss of the football game. In the case of the Pelletiers, however, options remain open even if the habeas corpus should fail.

ParentalRights.org is proud to be collaborating with Liberty Counsel on legislative solutions to this case, including the drafting of a bill currently being vetted for introduction in the Massachusetts legislature.

As you are able, please donate to support our ongoing efforts to preserve parents’ legal rights all over America. Even if you cannot give financially, spread the word to your family and friends and urge them to join the petition at ParentalRights.org/petition.

Sincerely,

Michael Ramey
Director of Communications & Research

04/21/14
Fellow Conservatives:

Last week, President Obama held a press conference to defend Obamacare. He said "this thing is working" and called on Democrats to forcefully defend the law during the midterm elections.

The president hopes to turn public opinion around on this issue so 2014 does not become a referendum against Obamacare.

We cannot allow this to happen. Obamacare is destroying our health care system by driving up costs and causing people to lose their plans and their doctors.

As we work to elect conservative Republicans to the Senate, we also need to take action to defeat the Democrats who are responsible for Obamacare.

Here are the six most vulnerable Democrats who voted for Obamacare:

Obamacare Six---> Mark Pryor (D-AR)
---> Mary Landrieu (D-LA)
---> Mark Begich (D-AK)
---> Kay Hagan (D-NC)
---> Mark Udall (D-CO)
---> Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH)

We must hold these Democrats accountable. We must remove them from office.

Please take action today by signing our pledge to use your time, your money, and your vote to defeat these liberal politicians.

By adding your name, you can make it clear that Americans oppose these Democrats specifically because of their votes for Obamacare. 

If we work together, we can use the midterm elections to create a mandate for repeal that not only forces other Democrats to change their position, but also pressures Republicans to follow through on their campaign promises.

Mark Pryor Cast Deciding Vote for ObamacareWe started this effort against vulnerable Democrats last year and spent $400,000 on several TV ads against Senator Pryor in Arkansas.

Now we need to expand it into Louisiana, Alaska, North Carolina, Colorado, and New Hampshire.

Please sign our pledge to help defeat the "Obamacare Six" today.
 
Thank you for working so hard to elect conservatives and to defeat liberals. We can change Washington if we change the people we send there.

Best regards,

Matt Hoskins
