Prop 23-- Suspend Ab 32!

HI All,

This is information I have received from the California Job Initiative, Prop 23. This will be on the November ballot to Suspend environmental regulations until California's businesses get back on their feet. You can read more and get specific information by going to the website link, Suspendab32.org. Please but this on your website or pass on to those on your email list. It is very important that we get this proposition passed this November, if we are to salvage our state. Below is the website to download great fact sheets for distribution.

eric@suspendab32.org

We are actually revising the website this weekend, so lots of new things are already up. There are some new banners you can put on your site to link to us and in answer to your question there are two fact sheets we have up, one on why we want to suspend ab 32 and another on CARB. In the couple of weeks ahead, we will probably add a few more facts to the first one and also add one on the green jobs myth - did you know that the 1000 green jobs at Tesla that Obama and Arnold keep promoting were subsidized by taxpayers at $500,000 each? I'm working on a fact sheet with that and some of the European green jobs debacles.

Here's the fact sheets you can download:

From: "Bachmann for Congress"
Date: August 9, 2010
Subject: The Primary Deadline is Tomorrow- Help me TODAY!

This is a must-win race for Conservatives, patriots

Tomorrow marks a critical deadline for my campaign and I hope you will take a quick minute to take action so we can meet our campaign goal in the final 24 hours leading up to this deadline.

As you may know, I have been the subject of a number of smear campaigns launched by the far-left. They have listed me as their top target for defeat because I am an outspoken member of the tea party movement and one of the leading critics of the Pelosi-Obama socialist agenda. Their attack team is relentless and will not rest until I am defeated. They have vowed to spend whatever it takes to defeat me. So I am counting on your support to make sure my campaign has the resources to fight back and win.

I am determined to win my primary campaign tomorrow and report the highest possible fundraising numbers to show I have the backing of thousands of grassroots conservatives. Your immediate donation will be included in this report, so I urge you to give right away so I can show my opponent, Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the liberals working to smear my record that we have built a strong campaign.

While polls show Americans do reject the Pelosi-Obama agenda, I will not operate my campaign under the assumption that I will win in a landslide. I take nothing for granted in life and pledge to you that I will continue fighting for our conservative values each and every day.

My campaign is focused on addressing the critical challenges you and I face. I am focused on finding commonsense conservative solutions to these challenges. And while I have fought to create jobs to strengthen our economy, Nancy Pelosi has continued to advocate a job-killing federal spending. Unfortunately, Pelosi’s ‘stimulus’ hasn’t created the jobs she promised. And when I draw attention to this fact, her friends on the far-left try to smear my record and launch false attacks on me.

I’m turning to you as one of my most loyal supporters to help me fight back and bring the focus back to the issues and my plan to revive American prosperity and restore our conservative values in government. Your immediate contribution of $25, $50, $100, $250or more before tomorrow at midnight will allow me to continue fighting back.

We cannot sit back and allow Pelosi and her far-left allies badger members of the tea party movement. We must match their multi-million dollar smear campaign dollar-for-dollar.
I appreciate your help, encouragement and prayers and look forward to continuing our conversation in the coming weeks.

Sincerely,

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann

P.S. My campaign faces a critical fundraising deadline tomorrow at midnight, and our records indicate you have not yet made a contribution toward this deadline. Please follow this link without delay to make a contribution of $25, $50, $100, $250 or more to ensure my campaign has the resources to fight back against the left’s smears. We must continue fighting for our commonsense conservative values. Thank you!

Del Beccaro: Controller’s Race Could Change Everything

I don't feel good about some of this year's candidates, but we have quite a few good ones. Tony Strickland is one of the good ones, a strong one and has an excellent cahnce of winning and influencing things positively- G.M.

Del Beccaro: Controller’s Race Could Change Everything
August 13, 2010, 04:37 PM

Imagine a State Controller who actually audited every agency of California government?

How about a State Controller that could use a computer system, that when we run out of money, and need to furlough employees, we could?

Why not a State Controller that tells the legislature, "NO IOU's, pass a budget or we close down shop?"'

California Republican Party Vice Chair Tom Del Beccaro states the problem clearly, "In recent weeks, in California alone, we have heard the stories of Bell, California where that small town was paying a city manager nearly twice what the President makes. Less publicized are the stories about how California schools are paying as much as $125 million, each year, too much for roof repairs and how John Chiangs Controllers office has spent over $70 million dollars and literally can’t update the States antiquated payroll system."

Our current Democrat State Controller has had four years and $70 million, and still hasn't computer problem. I bet that if there was a raise in pay for State employees, it could be accomplished overnight, don't you?

Is there an answer? "All of which brings us to Tony Strickland. He may well be the ideal candidate to start this Republican Controllers tide. As an Assembly member, he stood alone and sued then Governor Gray Davis because Davis refused to disclose the details of the awful energy deals he signed. Those terrible deals were costing Californians billions and until Strickland stood alone Davis was getting away with it. Strickland won his lawsuit, forced disclosure of contracts, and with that you can trace not only the end of those rip-off Enron energy contracts but also the end of Gray Davis political career. California desperately needs a Controller like that today as opposed to John Chiang who is resisting government reform at every turn."

I am now a "greenie". By that I mean we need to recycle Sacramento--do you agree?

Hi California iCaucus Members, (re: iCaucus endorsed candidates) We are less than 90 days away from the General Election, we have 22 candidates throughout California who have received your endorsement and who made it through the primary.

These candidates are no longer pending: Rick Tubbs - endorsed, Daniel Sahagun - endorsed, David Benning - did not win his primary. Brian Hendry's endorsement is still pending. We have set up the ning with forums for each of these candidates, this is the place to post events to attend, action that is needed by you and opposition research. The State Leaders have sent out requests for you to help, they are working hard to find one of our members in each district for these candidates to be the Liaison (main contact between iCaucus and these candidates so we can coordinate our efforts.) As a member of our organization, you have made a committment to activiely participate. Unlike many other groups our goal and mission is to participate to get involved with our election process, to have your voice heard in our vetting and endorsements, and to actively campaign for our endorsed candidates. Our leadership is often asked, "What can I do", well for starters you can make a committement of 5 hours a week, to recruit, to attend events, to research, and to organize. How are you suppose to change the direction of our State and our Nation, if you sit back and watch! These candidates have all demonstrated their willingness to stand up and put themselves on the line for us, their Principles have been vetted thoroughly and their sacrifice an inspiration. Now we need to do our part. Who among you are willing to be that person(s) who will make the difference? Leadership can be intimidating, but without it nothing will change. The State Leaders are waiting to hear from you. Northern California - Jim Ricketts jwricketts@gmail.com Central California - Mitzi Fortune republic00@hotmail.com Southern California - John Petree jpetree@att.net What is iCaucus doing Now? We are setting up training modules for our membership to accomplish their goals. We have been asked to provide the how to's, and we listened, modules have been and continute to be created for you to follow. They explain the iCaucus process for our campaigning efforts. We continue to reach out to our members and recruit coordinators for our CandidateS. With a coordinator for each candidate, the efforts that need to be accomplished becomes infinitely easier. These coordinators work at a more local level with other members to combine our efforts with the candidates campaign efforts. (so step up) We are also promoting other involvement like The American Majority Training classes, the more we know the more effective we will be. Our coordinated efforts Nationwide are being built on the main website. Very soon the main website will contain the Distict forums for each State, Candidate pages to facilitate our campaign efforts, Training Section, as well as State and National efforts. We will be saying good-bye to the ning and other forums out there and incompassing everything we do in a one stop website, the new registration announcement will be starting soon. We are addressing issues that arose during our primary. As most of you know, our endorsement for Governor created quite a stir, most of excitement, but some which questioned our process and actually the leadership of the endorsement. Let me first say that the process for this endorsement followed all of the iCaucus policies. The only irregularity was the length of the conference period, which came about due to the fact that many of our members and leadership did not know either of the candidates that went through our process. I would also like to state that both of the "front runners" were invited to participate on 4 occasions and both refused. The District Leaders and State Directors decided to put both candidates in front of our members and our communities prior to the vote. We held forums and posted them over a one month period of time. All on the ning site, then put the candidates out for a vote. Our voting system does not allow for multiple votes or stacking the deck as has been accused. Each member registers with their email which has an IP address listed, we track this information and allow only one vote. Even with multiple email addresses the IP tracking only allows one vote. The vote was made by iCaucus members throughout the entire State not one area over another. The members decided who to endorse! Our process is thorough and YOU make the decision. If you chose not to participate, then you should not complain. If you joined to get a candidate endorsed and they didn't, then you joined for the wrong reason. If you understand the process then you support the candidate endorsed by your fellow members. The fighting that went on here in CA isn't unique, splitting the vote by multiple grassroots candidates has happened in every State. We are new to this process and we are learning that only united with other like-minded grassroots organization can we effect change. We are the only organization bringing citizen's into the process and thoroughly vetting candidates on principles with a process that has been reviewed and endorsed by Dr. Bob Basso (Thomas Paine) and many other organization throughout our nation. Are we learning as we go? YES! We find areas that need more structure, more detail and more oversite. We are addressing these constantly and with that our policy and procedures manual is in revision now. We have established policies in place for 2010, but we are looking at all of the issues that need to be addressed and revising for 2012. In January we will be presenting the policies for revision to our delegate members for your input and review. COMING UP The March on DC. Last year on September 12th we saw the largest gathering of Constitutional Conservative converge on Washington DC, we expect the same if not more this year. iCaucus has been invited to have an iCaucus endorsed Candidates Convention as part of this event. Frank Anderson will be a speaker at a symposium on September 9th (the first day of the four day event), our Convention will be held on the 10th, and at the memorial service on the 11th, National Director Colleen Gray will be singing her original song titled "Say a Prayer" National Director Stephanie Jahn (me) will be addressing the crowd at the Rally later that afternoon. Our Candidates will be featured in a "2010 iCaucus endorsed Candidates Guide" which will be unveiled at this event. YOUR INVOLVEMENT AND ACTION IS NEEDED! YOU ARE THE KEY TO ICAUCUS, IT IS ABOUT YOU TAKING BACK YOUR REPRESENTATION. IF NOT NOW, WHEN? IF NOT ICAUCUS, WHAT? BY NOT GETTING INVOLVED YOU ARE ACCEPTING THE STATUS QUO!! WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO?
Laird concedes State Senate election to Sam Blakeslee
Sam Blakeslee's win keeps Democrats from two-thirds majority

This was an important election for California

http://www.montereyherald.com/local/ci_15825823?nclick_check=1
This one in particular, since it is the one that prevents the dreaded 2/3 spenders' majority. Would you care to ask if I was referring to "D's" or "R's?"

As bad as the Republicans are, they have done a better job holding down spending in Sacramento.

Our own local boy Chris Collier and others played an important role in that campaign, pouring some VC resources into the race.

Subj: ICYMI: Carly Wins Debate, Time to Volunteer

In Case You Missed It: Carly Fiorina Wins Debate

California Republican Party Chairman Ron Nehring issued the following statement regarding the U.S. Senate debate:

"Carly Fiorina demonstrated tonight that her real-world experience in creating jobs, making payrolls and managing budgets is just the recipe to oust out-of-touch career politician Barbara Boxer and her job-killing policies of higher taxes, more regulations and crippling national debt. The differences could not have been more clear to voters who realize Boxer, despite her election-year claims, has not delivered the help and hope she has promised, but rather has been an utter failure for the people of California. That's why they will reject Boxer and her failed record and vote for Carly Fiorina this November."

Now it is time to get involved and volunteer.

We need to ramp up our operations and begin contacting voters. With just 60 days left in this election, it is time to make the phone calls and walk the precincts that will elect Carly Fiorina and Meg Whitman this November.

Camarillo and Simi Valley offices are OPEN EVERY DAY for making phone calls to Voters starting Tuesday. Ventura and Thousand Oaks offices are opening very soon. Come out and make calls to make a difference. Sign up for a shift today.

Sign up today to be a VCRP Precinct Captain!

We are asking for just 4 things of our precinct captains this election:

1) Attend a Training
2) Walk Sat. Nov 2 to get out Absentee Voters
3) Walk Oct 30, the Saturday before the election
4) Work with us on Election Day to TAKE BACK CALIFORNIA.

You can sign up to be a Precinct Captain on our website. We will contact you about upcoming trainings in your community.

If you have any questions, call us at the office 805-557-1240.

“The States then being the parties to the constitutional compact, and in their sovereign capacity, it follows of necessity, that there can be no tribunal above their authority, to decide in the last resort, whether the compact made by them be violated; and consequently that as the parties to it, they must themselves decide in the last resort, such questions as may be of sufficient magnitude to require their interposition.” – James Madison

This country does not need to have a conversation about how many bullets should go in a clip. It does need to have a conversation about how many parents should go in a family. It needs to talk about the ghettos of Obamerica and have a serious conversation about broken families and generational dependency. It needs to have a conversation about funneling new immigrants from broken parts of the world into areas already suffering from high levels of unemployment and street violence.- Daniel Greenfield

“Disarmament of the populace is always the first step to depriving them of their civil rights and human rights…many African-Americans and women are actively assaulting the very document that first secured their own freedom... if you do not believe in the Bill of Rights, then you are not, at heart, an American.” – Mike Adams

Only in America could liberals talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000 a plate campaign fund raising event.

We need to demythologize guns before the liberal attempt to create a totemic fear of them succeeds. If the gun control mentality promoting fear of guns themselves becomes our national mentality, we would turn the clock back to the days when a warrior class ruled over the people because only they had the confidence and expertise to deploy the means of defense and coercion. The gun control agenda will turn us into a people too timid to defend themselves from our would-be masters. – Alan Keyes

So now that there is a new tragedy the president wants to have a “national conversation on guns”. Here’s the thing. Until this national conversation is willing to entertain allowing teachers to carry concealed weapons, then it isn’t a conversation at all, it is a lecture. – Larry Correia'

 "Thanking Obama for killing Bin Laden is like going into McDonalds and thanking Ronald McDonald for the hamburger. It's the guy cooking the burger that should get the credit, not the clown."

referring to 10-3-12 debate: "Obama made a lot of good points tonight. Unfortunately, most of them were for Romney." - Bill Maher, million dollar Obama donor

How can we stand up to someone that creates a 100 dollar Federal Reserve (FR) note for 2 cents and uses the face value of the note of 100 dollars to buy a 100 dollar U.S. Security where the government has to pay them 4% in interest at the end of the year? A yearly cost of 4 FR notes where it only cost the FR 2 cents to print.

This is the biggest Conspiracy you may ever encounter and this started sometime around 1913. Yes, your parents and their parents had so much of their time stolen from them at a cost of 2 pennies.

“Capital must protect itself in every possible way, both by combination and legislation. Debts must be collected, mortgages foreclosed as rapidly as possible. When, through the process of law, the common people lose their homes, they will become more docile and more easily governed through the strong arm of government applied by a central power of wealth under leading financiers. These truths are well known among our principal men who are now engaged in forming an imperialism to govern the world. By dividing the voter through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting for questions of no importance. It is thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves that which has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished.”
- President American Bankers Association, 1924

"I think it is wonderful that Eric holder is making sure that Mexicans' second amendment rights are preserved!" - Bobby Florenz

"Sixty-one percent of debt issued by the Treasury is bought by the Federal Reserve -- which is to say the left hand of the U.S. Government is lending money to the right hand of the US Government. ... Nonetheless, in a land where every mewling babe in the American nursery is born with a debt burden of just under $200,000, the president brags that only his party is 'compassionate' to have no plan whatsoever even to attempt to do anything about this, no way, no how, not now, not ever." --columnist Mark Steyn

Isn't it amazing how every facet of Sergeant Bales life,  high school, college, employment, why he left his employment, his brother’s employment, his wife’s employment, real estate holdings, a missed house payment , a missed promotion etc., is exposed within a week and the same fact finders can't find comparable info on the most powerful man in the world in three plus years ?

Your faithful friend and servant,
