HEARING CANCELLED Oppose SJR5 Annual Sessions

“No man’s life, liberty or property are safe while the Legislature is in session.” Mark Twain

See details of this Constitutional Amendment under Background.

We need people to come to the hearing and testify!! HEARING: Mon. March 18, 2:30pm (or upon call of the Chair), Senate Legislative Operations & Elections Committee, Rm 2144, Videoconferenced to Rm 4412E of the Grant Sawyer Building, 555 E. Washington Ave., Las Vegas, NV. MESSAGE: Vote No on SJR5 annual sessions for the Legislature. Increasing the time the Legislature meets will make it more difficult for citizen legislators and citizens to participate. We want less government not more. Reduce the numbers of bills allowed to be introduced so you don’t need as much time. (Or write your own message)

Background: Currently the Nevada Constitution provides that the Legislature meets for 120 consecutive days in every odd numbered year. This bill provides that the Legislature meet every odd numbered year for 90 “Legislative Days” which means that weekends and any day that the Senate or Assembly or a Legislative Committee does not meet does not count towards the 90 day number. Just adding weekends, extends the 90 days by 34 more days equaling at least 124 days, exceeding the current Constitutional limit of 120 days they meet now. In addition, upon agreement of the Senate Majority Leader and the Assembly Speaker they may call a “recess” which does not add days towards the 90 day total.     

The big addition is that under this proposed Constitutional Amendment in the even numbered years the Legislature would meet for 60 “Legislative Days” that means weekends and “recesses” excluded. That would extend the 60 day session at least 22 additional days just excluding weekends equaling 82 days not including any recesses. 124 days in odd numbered years added to 82 days in even number years equals 206 Legislatives Days. This increases the Legislatures days in session by 84 days or more if there is a recess called, greatly exceeding the 120 days the Constitution now provides.  

  Mark Twain said it best, “No man’s life, liberty or property are safe while the Legislature is in session.”    

The Legislature is not limited to budget issues during the even numbered Legislative session but may consider, introduce and pass any measure during either session. It is often argued that we need annual sessions to deal with the budget. Of course all this government will cost more.     

1250 Bill Draft Requests have been submitted this session. There is absolutely no reason and no need for so many bills.     SJR5 also provides that Legislators be paid at regular intervals instead of for only 60 days that they serve. I think this is reasonable and helps to maintain a “Citizen Legislature” with not just people who can afford to serve without pay.      Text of SJR5:  https://www.leg.state.nv.us/Session/80th2019/Bills/SJR/SJR5.pdf

Christians will be subjected to Government Sanctioned Discrimination & Persecution

Oppose *AJR2 which overturns Nevada’s Constitutional Amendment for Marriage  between and man and a woman.

Although, the U.S. Supreme Court has overturned marriage between a man and a woman, if this Constitutional Amendment passes in Nevada, Christians will be subjected to government sanctioned discrimination & persecution. 

When I asked the question during the Assembly hearing in 2017, which Constitutional Amendment will take precedence, AJR2 the gender marriage Constitutional Amendment or the Nevada Constitutional Declaration of Rights Art. 1 Section 4 protecting Religious liberty…the Legislative Counsel Bureau (attorney for Legislature) said in Committee that the newest Constitutional Amendment, gender marriage, would take precedent over religious Liberty.  Goodbye religious liberty!!!

Please oppose *AJR2. There is no need to change Nevada’s marriage amendment. The U.S. Supreme Court has already rendered it inoperative. However, changing Nevada’s marriage amendment will subject Christians to government sanctioned discrimination and persecution. Although clergy are minimally protected, church volunteers, employees, members and other religious organizations are unprotected. Individuals exercising their deeply held religious beliefs in their businesses will be subjected to religious targeting, discrimination and persecution. Please protect religious liberty.

Background: This Constitutional Amendment will replace marriage between a man and a woman which was passed by 70% of the people in two consecutive elections in 2000 and 2002. *AJR2 already passed the Legislature in 2017 and when it passes the Legislature this session it will go on the ballot. It will mean that schools will teach LGBTQ marriage (and everything that goes with it) on an equal basis with God ordained marriage between a man and a woman. It will mean that people in business will be forced by law to participate in supporting gender marriage or go out of business. Day by Day…bill by bill…we are losing our Religious Liberties.

Religious organizations and members of the clergy have the right to refuse to solemnize a marriage, and no person has the right to make any claim against a religious organization or member of the clergy for such a refusal. 3. All legally valid marriages must be treated equally under the law.

The Nevada Constitution in Article 1 Section 4 states: Liberty of conscience. The Free exercise and enjoyment of religious profession and worship without discrimination or preference shall forever be allowed in this State…but the liberty of (conscience) hereby secured…” 

The Nevada Constitution Ordinance provides “That perfect toleration of religious sentiment shall be secured, and no inhabitant of said state shall ever be molested, in person or property, on account of his or her mode of religious worship.”

Nevada Dems have a problem, they are getting caught.

Reno Gazette Journal USA TODAY NETWORK State Sen. Majority Leader Kelvin Atkinson, D-North Las Vegas, resigned Tuesday after saying he intends to plead guilty to federal campaign finance law violations.

Atkinson, who was serving his first year in the top legislative post, announced his departure in an emotional speech from the Senate floor.He offered few details on an apparently ongoing investigation into his personal use of campaign funds.His attorney did not immediately return requests for comment.

I’ll bet they won’t have much to say over pleading to a felony.

Tuesday’s resignation marks the first time a lawmaker has left mid-session since 2013, when Assemblyman Steven Brooks was expelled from the statehouse amid ongoing mental health issues

That’s right, the top dem in the Nevada State Senate is going to Prison for a felony.

Washington Ave., Las Vegas.  Videoconferenced to Room 129, Leonard Center for Student Life, Great Basin College, 1500 College Parkway, Elko, NV 

AB 95: This bill attempts to retroactively take 75% of a domestic well owner’s water allotment which will devastate any chance of a rural lifestyle. Domestic use of water was purposely exempted from Nevada law. The language in this bill is to confuse legislators to think that domestic wells have a priority date tied to the appropriation date of water rights. This bill is attempting an unconstitutional taking without compensation.

Oppose AB186 National Popular Vote Colorado has just passed NPV putting us only 89 electoral votes away from implementation of the National Popular Vote Compact

We must get 3 Democrats on the Committee to Oppose AB186

Article Below on how NPV Hurts Democrats 

In order to defeat this in committee we must get 3 Democrats to vote against. We anticipate that the 2 Republicans will vote No. You can check to see if you live in their district at http://mapserve1.leg.state.nv.us/whoRU/ If you do be sure to mention it and get your neighbors to call Please contact them even if you are not in their district. CALLS are IMPORTANT! We are targeting: 

Assemblyman Fumo (Democrat Clark Dist 21) who has said he is against but is listed as a co-sponsor of SB186 NPV: 775-684-8839, [email protected]

Assemblyman Skip Daly (Democrat in a swing district Washoe 31 so he cares especially about calls from his district) who said he hasn’t made up his mind. 775-684-8563, [email protected]

Assemblyman William McCurdy II, (Democrat Clark Dist 6) whose position is unknown but friendly.775-684-8545, [email protected]

Assemblywoman Selena Torres (just elected Democrat Clark Dist 3) appears to be leaning in favor.775-684-8599, [email protected]

MESSAGE: Please Vote NO on AB186 National Popular Vote. It could hurt the chances of a Democrat winning the Presidency, especially if there is an Independent Candidate. It will make small states like Nevada meaningless fly over states in the Presidential Election( Or write your own message) More information below. 

The following States plus the District of Columbia have already signed onto the NPV State Compact. Notice that every one of these states voted for Hillary Clinton in the most recent election. The states are listed with their number of electoral votes: California 55, Connecticut 7, District of Columbia 3, Hawaii 4, Illinois 20, Maryland 10, Massachusetts 11, New Jersey 14, New York 29, Rhode Island 4, Vermont 3, Washington 12, and Colorado 9 equaling 181 electoral votes. This means that according to NPV Compact they are more than 67% of the way to their goal or just 89 electoral votes short from putting the Compact into effect! If only a portion of the additional states not listed above voting for Hillary passed the NPV Compact, it would go into effect. This article explains how NPV could harm Democrats…Remember we are trying to get 3 Democrats to vote against NPV.The DANGERS of National Popular Vote

By Janine Hansen, National Constitutional Issues Chairman Eagle Forum The First Danger of NPV: The National Popular Vote Compact has no minimum percentage for a candidate to be declared the National Popular Vote Winner. What this means is in a 3 way race a candidate could win with 35% of the popular vote or even less. If we look at recent Presidential Election history from 1992, we will see that Ross Perot, an Independent millionaire and self financed Candidate, received 19% of the vote most likely causing George H. W. Bush to lose his second term. Before Ross Perot withdrew and then reentered the race, he was polling at 39%. Although Ross Perot received no Electoral College Votes, in a National Popular Vote Election that does not matter. If he or some other Independent Candidate received 39% of the popular vote, they would probably have obtained enough votes to be named the National Popular Vote winner. Before the 1992 election Republican Bush was polling at 31% and the Democrat Clinton had 25%. This could happen again in the 2020 Presidential Election. Starbucks mogul Howard Schultz has announced he is running for the Presidency as a “centrist independent”. If National Popular Vote is in force Schultz as an Independent Candidate, could win the presidency with only 39% or less of the popular vote.

His candidacy could devastate the Democrat Presidential Candidate. Like Ross Perot he is a millionaire and could be self financed. Up to 42% of Americans identify as “Independents”. People are increasingly becoming disenchanted with both political parties. There are other third parties, which would also deprive the major parties of some of the national popular votes including the Libertarian Party, Independent American /Constitution Party, Green Party and others.

Because the National Popular Vote Compact has NO minimum percentage required for the NPV Winner we could elect a candidate with no national mandate. United States has had more than one 3 way race for the presidency. In 1912 Teddy Roosevelt bolted the Republican Party and organized the Bull Moose Party. His success was to split the Republican vote so that William Howard Taft lost, electing Democrat Woodrow Wilson. Teddy Roosevelt, as a former President and as a third Party candidate actually garnered more popular votes than the Republican candidate. Wilson received 41% of the popular vote with Roosevelt receiving 27% and Taft 23%. In 1860 when Republican Abraham Lincoln was elected there were actually four candidates in the race. Lincoln received 39% of the popular vote, Stephen A. Douglas (Northern Democrat Party) received 29.5%, John Breckenridge (Southern Democrat Party) received 18%, and John Bell (Constitutional Union Party) received 12% of the popular vote. We know what happened with the election of Lincoln. He had no national mandate winning with only 39% of the Popular Vote. The stark divisions in the nation at that time resulted in the Civil War and the bloodshed and death of 620,000 Americans. 

The Second Danger of NPV: There is No National Authority for determining the accuracy of the National Popular Vote for President. The Nevada legislative proposal AB186 is exactly the same as proposals in other states. AB186 requires on page 2 line 26: …the chief election official of each member state shall determine the number of votes for each presidential slate IN EACH STATE OF THE UNITED STATES AND THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA in which votes have been cast in a statewide popular election and SHALL ADD SUCH VOTES TOGETHER TO PRODUCE A “NATIONAL POPULAR VOTE TOTAL” for each presidential slate. Wow! So our Secretary of State is responsible for determining the validity of the presidential election vote in 50 states and the District of Columbia. And that is also true for each “chief election officer in each state. Who is the arbitrator if states don’t agree? There is no answer in the NPV Compact.

Currently, the Director of the Federal Register has been designated by the Archivist of the United States and is responsible for obtaining from the states the certificated results of the election. There is a careful process for determining the correct election results. There is nothing comparable to that well defined and safeguarded process in the National Popular Vote Compact. How will the public be able to trust the election results by 51 chief election officers when there is no national process to certify the votes? In the past some states have even failed to send their results to the Archivist of the United States.

What happens if, as a part of the Compact, Nevada’s Secretary of State designates a different National Popular Vote Winner than the one of the other states in the Compact designate? What if a Chief Election Officer of a state wherein the Popular Vote differs from the National Popular Vote “Winner” REFUSES to betray the voters of his state and does not certify the electors for the National Popular Vote “Winner”? Will the other States take that State to Court? Will it throw the election into the hands of the Supreme Court? What happens, as just happened in North Carolina, if Voter Fraud is discovered and the election is overturned? Does that nullify the National Popular Vote Total and nullify the Presidential election? Does it delay the election of the President throwing the nation into a Constitutional Crisis and political chaos? Will it result in endless recounts and lawsuits? 

The Third Danger of NPV National Popular Vote sets up a system of betrayal of the Voters. Under NPV if Nevada votes for the Democrat Presidential Candidate, but the National Popular Vote winner is determined to be the Republican or the Independent, the Secretary of State in Nevada will be forced to betray the Voters of Nevada certifying presidential electors for the candidate who did not receive the popular vote in Nevada. This kind of betrayal will infuriate the voters of Nevada and subject those who supported such a vote stealing scheme to their wrath of the voters! National Popular Vote creates instability jeopardizing what the Electoral College has provided for over 200 years—the peaceful transfer of power.

Take Action Against Universal Background Checks: Contact your County Commissioners New Mexico’s Counties pass resolutions declaring themselves Second Amendment Sanctuary Counties!

16 of 17 Counties in Nevada (all but Clark) voted against Bloomberg’s Universal Background checks. New Yorker Bloomberg poured $18 million into our state to force background checks. The statewide vote was 558,631 in favor and 548,732 only 9,899 difference. Statewide it was 50.45% in favor and 49.55% opposed. The results from all counties but Clark voting against Background Checks range from Washoe at the lowest with 54.34% against, Carson 65.65% to Eureka at 90.28%. Other rural counties range from 75% to 88.63%.

 https://www.nvsos.gov/silverstate2016gen/ballot-questions/  New Mexico’s County Commissions faced with their state Legislature imposing Universal Background checks have begun to pass county Second Amendment Sanctuary Resolutions with the support of their sheriffs. “The purpose is to get the attention of Albuquerque and Santa Fe,” Sheriff Ferrari said. ”

As Sheriff, I want to keep guns out of the hands of criminals. As Sheriff, I want to keep guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens.”

“San Juan, Lincoln, and Eddy counties are just the latest to make the move and approve such resolutions. Quay, Union, Curry, and Socorro counties have all drafted resolutions that represent the latest push back against state firearms legislation.”

Yesterday the Nevada State Senate introduced an outrageous abortion bill SB179 which removes from our law the requirement of “informed consent” before having an abortion, including making sure the woman is pregnant and informing her of how many weeks pregnant she is, what procedure for the abortion will be used, the proper procedures for care after the abortion and the risks after the abortion.

In addition, the bill removes the provisions for parental notification for a minor child before they can have an abortion. These provisions were overturned by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals but have remained in our law. If we had an Attorney General who was willing to challenge it again with our new U.S. Supreme Court it could be reactivated. It is outrageous that the Progressive Democrats oppose parental notification and informed consent. They really don’t care about parents or girls and women but only their radical agenda which has now become apparent…even killing babies after they are born. SB179 is so extreme that it repeals NRS 201.150 “Concealing birth; penalty. Every person who shall endeavor to conceal the birth of a child by any disposition of its dead body, whether the child died before or after its birth, shall be guilty of a gross misdemeanor.” What?!!! It will not be a crime to dispose of a child’s dead body! No hearing has been set yet. I have enclosed some information from Nevada Right to Life who we are partnering with in opposing this bill.

MESSAGE: Please oppose SB179. It is irresponsible to remove informed consent protections from abortion laws leaving women open to exploitation. Removing parental notification for abortion from our law is thoroughly disdainful of parents’ rights and responsibilities. Please protect our minor daughters from the abuse of others who do not have their best interests in mind. (Or write your own message)

Oppose SB123: Same Day Register and Vote on Election Day  HEARING: Wed. Feb 20, 4:00pm, Senate Legislative Operations & Elections Committee, Rm 2144, Video conferenced to Rm 4412 of the Grant Sawyer Building, 555 E. Washington Ave., Las Vegas, NV. 

MESSAGE: Oppose SB123 Citizens have many opportunities all year long including at the DMV to register to vote. They should take some responsibility for registering to vote. Registering to Vote on Election Day puts our election system at risk for fraud. (or write your own message) 

CONTACT: [email protected][email protected][email protected][email protected][email protected] 

Background: This bill allows people to register to vote on Election Day, for all elections including Primaries. To register to vote they must appear at one or more sites designated by the county or city clerk to register to vote, complete an application to register to vote and provide proof of identity and residence. The voter may vote only at the polling place where he registered to vote. Nevada’s law now allows people to register to vote 1) by mail by the fourth Tuesday before the election (that’s one week) 2) by appearing in person by at the office of the county or city clerk by the third Tuesday preceding an election (that’s two weeks), now we have automatic voter registration when you go to the DMV and you can register to vote online. Are people so irresponsible that they find it impossible to register to vote in advance? 

The Problem with Same Day Voter Registration (Fraud)https://www.americanmajority.org/vote-fraud/the-problem-with-same-day-voter-registration/“Same-day Voter Registration requires the voter to complete the application and provide “proof of residence” documentation. Ballots for same-day registrants are counted in that election but the actual registration is not verified until AFTER Election Day…For example, in the 2008 election, 62,000 voters registered on Election Day ALONE in the City of Milwaukee. How many of those registrations were actually legitimate? But all of their votes were counted in the election.” Does anyone find it odd that 62,000 had forgone any other option for registering and decided to wait until Election Day?

Oppose Big Brother Automated Traffic Cameras Giving Tickets HEARING: Tuesday Feb 19, 1:30pm, Senate Growth & Infrastructure Committee, Room 2135, Video conferenced to Room 4412E of the Grant Sawyer Building, 555 E. Washington Ave., Las Vegas, NV. 

MESSAGE: Oppose SB43 Auto Traffic Cameras which will give tickets. This is Big Brother and another scheme to pick the pockets of citizens. It is ripe for abuse with private companies holding way too much information on individual citizens. (or write your own message) 

CONTACT: [email protected][email protected][email protected][email protected][email protected][email protected][email protected][email protected] 

Background information: SB43 changes Nevada law to allow tickets to be issued through traffic cameras. The minimum administrative fine will be $50 and if you don’t pay in a month it goes up to $100. The purpose of this law is to increase revenues for local governments…another revenue stream. As of 2018 at least 7 states were trying to ban red-light cameras. One problem is that tickets are issued to the owner of the car whether or not they are driving and they have to prove they weren’t driving. Arizona State Rep. Travis Grantham, “I think everyone in the country should be concerned about this type of law enforcement action, especially when it’s so ripe with corruption.” In one case in Arizona in 2016, a former traffic light enforcement camera vendor was sentenced to prison for bribery and fraud. “The practice of privatizing law enforcement actions is just wrong,” Grantham said. “Every aspect of it is wrong. When you add the equation of for-profit into the mix, it presents a lot of opportunity for fraud and abuse.” Brantham said the third-party companies are holding too much data about motorists… 

Sixteen municipalities have held public referenda against these programs, all successful. Major cities like Los Angeles, Atlanta, Raleigh and Houston have rejected red-light cameras after initially approving them. Almost every state with red-light cameras has spurred citizen opposition groups with mad-as-hell names like, “Ban the Cams”, “Wrong on Red,” and “Highway Robbery.” Americans feel rightly outraged when they believe others game the system to use the law as a way to pick their pockets. They get incensed to discover that contracts with private camera vendors can dictate policing and safety practices even when the public has weighed in against those practices.

Please pray for the Legislature and the Governor. The Whole Senate will vote today (Wednesday) at 11am on SB143 It’s important to email! Report Joint Hearing SB143 Universal Background Checks Creating a Culture of Compliance 

Perhaps the most alarming testimony on SB143 was that of the attorney Rosen speaking with Senator Atkinson the sponsor. When asked a question about enforcement he answered that the real purpose of SB143 was to Create a Culture of Compliance! Because of course we know that only law-abiding citizens will obey the law and criminals never will. The Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution were designed by our Founders to Create a Culture of Liberty and Individual Self-Reliance. The Joint hearing of the Senate & Assembly Judiciary Committees on SB143 on Tuesday, Feb. 12th, started at 8:15am and lasted until 5pm with a break for the Senate and Assembly Floor Sessions at 11am. The people opposing SB143 vastly outnumbered the proponents some 500 to 50. Everyone who was willing to wait nearly all day was given the opportunity to speak. The proponents ran out of people to testify but the opponents kept going until 5pm. I was extremely thankful and proud of all those who showed up at the hearing in Carson and Las Vegas. Each person including Governor Sisolak, and AG Aaron Ford were given 2 minutes to testify. It was fair in that way. Although we can anticipate losing this battle, the numbers and the excellent, well-informed testimony of opponents will have an impact, causing fear in the hearts of the Democrats. Keep praying for them. Just know that every person who came and every person who testified was a blessing to the cause of liberty. Every email and every call added to the weight of truth placed before our opponents. We don’t win every battle but as we seek the Lord and exercise our rights of petitioning the Legislature for redress of grievances and exercise freedom of speech, the Lord will bless our efforts. THANKS!!! The Judiciary Committees took a short break and the Senate Committee reconvened and voted SB143 out of committee on a party line vote with Democrats Senators Cannizarro, Harris, Ohrenschall, Marilyn Donder-Loop, and Melanie Scheible voting in favor. Republican Senators Hammond, Hansen and Pickard voted no. The Republicans complained about the language of the bill not being available until 11am the previous day which gave no time to submit amendments. Their concerns were disregarded by the Chair Cannizarro. The whole Senate then convened and placed SB143 on Second Reading which means the whole Senate will vote on SB143 today at their 11am session. We can expect a strict party line vote with 13 Democrats voting Yes and 8 Republicans voting NO. It’s still important to EMAILKeep up the heat!!!

We expect that the Assembly Judiciary will vote tomorrow morning at 8am and then it will go to the floor for a vote of the entire Assembly and then be sent to the Governor. I will send another alert on the Assembly. MESSAGE to Democrats on the Senate Judiciary 

I am very disappointed in your disregard of public opinion and your fast tracking of SB143 for universal background checks which will not make us safer but will lead to law abiding citizens being charged with a crime. It will ultimately lead to gun registration. (or write your own message)
