"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.

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

NORTH COUNTY CONSERVATIVES TO HOLD NEXT MEETING TUESDAY, MARCH 25, 2014. PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT ALL MEETINGS ARE HELD ON THE FOURTH TUESDAY OF THE MONTH.
Your North County Conservatives hold their fourth Tuesday of the month meetings at Mike's BBQ at 1356 West Valley Parkway. Mike's BBQ is located in the Staples Center west of the I-15 freeway (go to http://mikesbbq.net/for directions, menu, etc.). We at NCC feel that each meeting is important, so please come prepared to learn how YOU can get involved in "Making America Great Again."
YourNorth County Conservatives next general meeting will be at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 25, 2014. In addition to our guest speakers, representatives from the offices of Assemblywoman Marie Waldron, Congressman Duncan Hunter, Jr. and State Senator Mark Wyland will be with us and
available to answer questions.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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
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
As you are able, please donate to support our ongoing efforts to preserve parents’
