NOW... WITH OVER FIVE YEARS KEEPING THE CONSERVATIVES OF NORTH
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

In fact, it was our second president, John Adams, who said of our thoroughly researched and developed governing document, "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." Quote from Ben Carson's book, "One Nation."
“Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a
dangerous servant and a fearful master.”
WEEK OF JULY 21-25:
Wear your North County Conservatives buttons. Let our elected representatives know you are paying attention to what they are enacting!
22 NCC monthly meeting rescheduled to Tuesday, July 29th (see below).
In lieu of our meeting on the 22nd, Glenn Beck is having a live streaming program in theaters that evening. We will be going to the theater in San Marcos. It starts at 8:00 p.m.Tickets are available on-line at (*)http://www.fathomevents.com/event/we-will-not-conform-live. We hope that NCC'ers throughout North County will be joining us.
For those who missed our June meeting, we heard from Jeff Pitt, a certified handgun instructorand home defense expert, then adjourned to attend the City Council meeting at City Hall.
Conservatives are aware of the "war on women" rhetoric wielded by progressives and the media. The question is: who is framing the story? Right now, it's the Left and they are winning.
But it doesn't have to be this way.
The American Majority team feels passionate about this issue. At an American Majority Women's Activist Training this summer, we took steps toward changing the conversation and revealing the Left's false narrative. Faith Jones, an attendee, explains what she's doing about the "war on women.”
“Since your presentation, I have become more active on Twitter and on the war on women. Thank you for inspiring us to reach out in new ways and pull this fight in the right direction!"
We believe it is important to develop a strategy to push back and reframe the debate.Whether you attend one of our trainings, or simply educate yourself, know the following as you wage your own war against the false "war on women.”

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.
I continue to hear from so many of you asking where we are in the fight to overturn AB 1266 by referendum. Some of you believe the battle is over because nothing seems to be happening. Of course that is not the case.
But things move slowly through the courts.
Let me recap where we have been:
AB 1266 was signed by Governor Brown last August and was scheduled to take effect on January 1 of this year. That new law would allow students in California K-12 public schools to use the bathroom, locker room and showers that align with their gender identity rather than gender reality. Boys in the girls bathroom permitted by law.
But Privacy For All Students gathered more than 620,000 signatures in the 90 days following the Governor's signing of the bill. About 505,000 signatures are required to qualify a referendum that would appear on the November 2014 ballot.
When the 58 counties concluded their tally of valid signatures months later in February, they claimed that approximately 131,000 of these signatures were invalid.
That number left PFAS short of the number needed to qualify the referendum by 17,276.
We have come to find out that traditionally that would be the end of the road. Apparently those who seek to qualify a referendum or an initiative rarely challenge the results that come from the secretive and highly discretionary process of declaring valid or invalid the signatures to qualify a voter initiated item on the ballot.
We knew right away that one in five signatures should not have been tossed out. Our examination (permitted by law) of the rejected signatures immediately showed that many had been rejected for questionable reasons and some of those thrown out were clearly valid.
So all we needed to do was point out the mistakes to the County officials or the Secretary of State and we could move this referendum onto the ballot.
Not so fast.
County officials have not been very cooperative in our efforts to challenge their count. And the Secretary of State has been downright hostile. We were told that even the evidence we found in the counties could not be taken away. No copies. No evidence that could be put in front of a court.
For a second time we brought suit against the California Secretary of State.
In response to our subpoenas, County elections officials have refused to provide the AB 1266 petitions so that we can provide a recount and submit evidence to the court. Ironically, these officials claim that they want to protect the privacy of the signers.
Additionally, the Secretary of State claimed that she should not be alone in front of the court. The judge seemed to agree and the suit has been amended to name 57 of the 58 counties.
But even our opponents realize how difficult it will be to solve this matter with around 60 attorneys in the courtroom. This week, one county responded on behalf of the others.
The response is as expected. They are sticking by the 131,000 signatures thrown out and want to walk the matter slowly through the courts.
It seems obvious that our opponents believe we will either give up or that they will at least achieve a victory if they can delay the matter until it needs to appear on a future ballot.
As we have said from the beginning, we are prepared to litigate this matter as long as is necessary so that every legitimate signature is counted.
That is the long answer. The quick update is that we are in court and we are not backing down.
The idea of forcing boys and girls to share bathrooms is spreading across the country. With your help, we will continue to fight for privacy for all.
Feds Open Their Bathrooms
It has been less than nine months since we started Privacy For All Students to protect the privacy and safety of boys and girls that were going to be forced to share bathrooms, showers and locker rooms.
Now the federal government has quietly enacted a similar policy for federal employees. It states in part:
For a transitioning employee, this means that, once he or she has begun living and working full-time in the gender that reflects his or her gender identity, agencies should allow access to restrooms and (if provided to other employees) locker room facilities consistent with his or her gender identity. While a reasonable temporary compromise may be appropriate in some circumstances, transitioning employees should not be required to have undergone or to provide proof of any particular medical procedure (including gender reassignment surgery) in order to have access to facilities designated for use by a particular gender.
At PFAS we knew that this radical policy would not be confined to California public schools. But it is shocking to see how little regard there is for those who have an expectation of privacy in traditionally gender segregated facilities.
Harvard study revealed what many of us have been feeling – millennials are
starting to feel the effects of bad policies on our generation. We produced a
video with some of the important findings from these recent studies that we
believe others need to know. Will you help us by passing it along?
This is a video created entirely by college students
to help wake up our generation.

Low election turnout points to flaws in CA voting records
By Bre Payton | Watchdog.org
Embarrassingly low voter turnout in Tuesdayâ€™s primary highlights problems with the Golden Stateâ€™s voting rolls.
Only 13.19 percent of registered voters in Los Angeles County participated in the primary, according to the L.A. County registrar.
While the Los Angeles Times attributed the low participation rate to contented voters, voter integrity groups say voters believe their ballots donâ€™t matter becauseâ€¦Read the full story Â»

Voter fraud trial to begin for former L.A. Councilman Richard Alarcon
By Soumya Karlamangla | Los Angeles Times
Nearly four years after they were initially charged, former Los Angeles City Councilman Richard Alarcon and his wife Flora Montes de Oca Alarcon are to stand trial Thursday, accused of lying about where they lived so Alarcon could run for office.
Opening arguments are set to begin in the felony perjury and voter fraud case against Alarcon, who until last year represented the 7th Council District, which includes Sylmar, Pacoima and other parts of the northeast San Fernando Valley...Read the full story Â»

CRPD Passes Committee: Help Us Stop It Once Again!
The United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) passed the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Tuesday by a 12-6 vote. That’s the bad news, and we need your support to halt this treaty that can now be brought to the Senate floor for a final vote at any time. A two-thirds majority is needed to provide consent for its ratification, meaning 34 “No” votes are enough to stop it – but they could be hard to come by.
Then there is good news, from a different and unexpected direction, which alsorequires immediate funding. Oklahoma’s new Parents’ Bill of Rights, signed into law by Gov. Mary Fallin just last month, has prompted other organizations, including local school administrations, to reach out to ParentalRights.org for interpretation and application of the law. How do they need to shape their policies – especially those relative to data collection under the soon-defunct Common Core – to respect the rights of parents now called for under this statute? That they are looking to us as experts on this law creates a tremendous opportunity for us in that state.
These two recent events demand that we both fund and take immediate actionin the effort to protect parental rights.
The CRPD’s passage out of committee greatly increases our need to have an on-going presence on Capitol Hill. We must make certain this treaty does not pass – whether brought to a full Senate vote, or sneaked through when nearly no one is on the floor (as Harry Reid attempted once before). We also need to increase calls to our senators urging them to vote “no.” (Call the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121 or click on your state at parentalrights.org/states for your senators’ office numbers.)
Meanwhile, the Oklahoma development means we need to secure reviews of the law from legal experts explaining its application in several areas. Everything from public schools to child abuse investigations to medical decisions was covered by the bill, andproviding solid guidance on each subject will allow us to stake our position asthe go-to experts on parental rights.
To do either of these requires your generous donation today, and the fact is we need to do both. Please take a moment, dig deep, and give to help us drive the success we have enjoyed and defeat this dangerous treaty for perhaps the final time.
(The CRPD, like any treaty, can be brought back at any time. But if the Senate’s structure shifts this November as many pundits expect, the CRPD may not pose as great a threat for some time as it does right now.)
We must stop the Senate from giving away American sovereignty and enlisting the U.N. to set American domestic policy. And we need to step up as the parental rights experts in Oklahoma as well.
We know things are tight, and we greatly appreciate all of your past support. But we simply cannot win without you now. Please give today as we strive to keep our country free!
