NEARING THE END
August 21st 2013 @ 5:26 pm

The 2013 legislative session is drawing to an end.
Camille Giglio

Dozens of bills are now awaiting final action on the Senate or Assembly floor or the Governor’s desk.

In the 1960’s there began to be a great emphasis on what was cynically referred to as psycho-babble, touchy/feely psychology or the beginnings of the “me too” generation. Former Assemblyman John Vasconcellos wrote a book blaming family and church for all the problems of the world. He spent his whole time in the legislature trying to pass a new education master plan in which children would be relieved of these restrictive ideologies.

Over the years and quietly before our eyes, all of this was slowly and quietly, through university professors, foundations and lobbying groups, being slipped into position as public policy and political candidates were using clever and deceptive language at times to convince the voters that America needed change which could happen through health care and education.

Over the years pro life groups including ours have watched and recorded this this movement to change America and its Christian basis. President Obama is not the first to lead the change charge nor, probably, will he be the last. He has been the most successful and efficient in gathering support from the public in this effort.

The same modus operandi has been going on within the states, Governor Brown and the Democrat majority in the legislature along with some Republicans are merely the latest in a long line of change agents for California implementing the designs of these progressive organizations and leaders.

This legislative term appears to be producing the culmination of years of efforts to place California in the lead position bringing this change to fruition. Much of ObamaCare is in place or soon will be. Common Core education standards - direct federal intervention in local affairs - is being promoted. Today’s 8/14/13 Contra Costa Times article “New Standards Confuse,” speaking about whether or not the California public is ready to accept Common Core, implies that there is a “heavy” campaign soon to begin encouraging acceptance of the new education master plan, k-20. Yes, I said 20, not K-12 anymore. This article refutes a previously published article in the Times, referring to the same Pew survey results, which claim that parents accept the continual testing (data gathering) portion of Common Core Education Standards.

So far the Governor has vetoed two bills which we opposed:

AB 926, Susan Bonilla, Reproductive Health and Research, paying women who donate their reproductive eggs for research; and, SB 540, Mark Wyland, Career Technical Ed: Recognition Certificates. Substituting a certificate of training in place of a diploma.

Gov. Brown’s veto message regarding SB 540 is a great example of his confused thinking:
“I commend the author for wanting to encourage students to enroll in career education, but this bill does not comport with the principle of subsidiary, so important to a sound allocation of power between state and local authority.”

Brown has taken this explanation right out of his Catholic seminary student days. Too bad he hasn’t been using this principle on all the Obama Care and Common Core global education legislation.

Richard Pan’s AB 980, building standards codes for abortion clinics. Will be heard in Senate Appropriations on August 26th. The language of the bill has grown strident, “It is the intent of the Legislature to preempt, and to render inoperative, Section 1226.7 of the 2013 Triennial Edition of the California Building Standards Code.” This means that building codes pertaining to clinics providing abortions will be no different in sanitation/plumbing, room size, entry shall be no different than any exam room in a strip mall clinic.

AB 154, Toni Atkins, midwives performing abortions, is still awaiting a final floor vote. At its last hearing the Senate appropriations committee placed the bill on Suspense due to the amount of funding required to implement the bill, however, an Appropriations Committee spokesperson told me that the bill was passed on to the Senate floor because they did not find it exceeded their funding limits of either $50,000. for a General Fund bill or $150,000. for a special fund bill. The last time we saw the bill it had a total of $300,000. in it.

Several bills and Resolutions have been either signed or Chaptered, including:
SJR 2, A resolution urging congress to approve the Violence Against Women Act - WAVA - a federal bill embracing the UN position on Women and Children’s rights over the U.S. Constitution.

Four bills, by Sen. Ed. Hernandez expanding Medi-Cal and the numbers of those who can receive health care coverage. Also a bill AB 643 to expand those groups and community agencies who may have access to pupil records.

Twenty-nine bills which we tagged in health and education are on the Governor’s desk awaiting his decision. Plus many more sent to either of the Appropriations Committee suspense files.

Here are a few examples of media publications designed more for manipulating one’s mind than for delivering facts.

1.7.13, State Assembly speaker, John Perez,(D) rents out the Sacramento Catholic Cathedral, (as usual) for an interfaith prayer service convening the state legislature. Perez is openly homosexual and enjoys a 100% support rating from Planned Parenthood.

Question: Why is the Catholic Church renting out the Blessed Sacramento Cathedral to a body which in the main, opposes everything about the church? Is the Bishop in support of the Democrat agenda?

Assemblyman Tom Ammiano’s AB 460, fertility, would delete any requirement for proof of infertility for gay and lesbian couples or individuals to receive fertility treatment payments, at the insurer’s expense, simply because their sexual unions cannot produce children? That’s sort of like paying farmers not to grow wheat. Neither Ammiano’s website nor the progressive media mention this bill.

The Sunday, August 18, Contra Costa Times, publishing an Associated Press article that declares “Most parents back standardized tests.” This is in reference to acceptance of the heavily promoted Common Core Standards to be implemented in conjunction with federal education and universal education innovations.

A YouTube presentation on Common Core standards, shows a Chicago suburban curriculum coordinator (old name - teacher) declaring that: “it doesn’t matter (if kids don’t get the right answer in math) as long as they can explain how their reasoning helped them obtain that answer.” This is now referred to as math literacy. Let’s hope no one with that math literacy was involved in constructing the new Bay Bridge.

AB 166, by Sen. Ed Hernandez, Pupil Instruction: financial Literacy, is California’s contribution to the dumbing down of students. If it doesn’t matter, according to the Chicago illuminati what the correct mathematical answer is what good is financial literacy going to do the students of tomorrow? Right now the definition of zero personal finances doesn’t’ mean no money, broke. It means the opportunity to file for state aid. And, if they can’t read, it further means employing a “Navigator” to assist them in applying for aid. That’s workforce development, folks.

Definition of Navigator? Aggressive used car salesman.

AB 271, by Holly Mitchell,(D), http://www.asmdc.org/members/a54/biography CalWorks: Eligibility, would repeal the Family Cap prohibiting the denial of welfare payments to unwed mothers for any reason whatsoever. Prior to her election to the state Assembly, Mitchell was on the staff of former state Senator Diane Watson, one of the most rabid pro abort supporters to be elected to state office. As Chairman of the Senate Health Committee, she once refused to allow pro lifers to give testimony on a bill, threatening to call the police and throw them out.

The bill removes the hotly contested federal regulation and limitations on receipt of welfare for unwed mothers, created within the TANF law - Temporary Assistance to Needy Families. Progressive organizations never liked these taxpayer protective regulations and have tried periodically to get rid of them. The supporters, including the California Catholic Conference, claim compassion for the much maligned poor woman who has more children while on welfare and, therefore, they should have the right to petition for increased welfare payments. It is hoped that this pseudo compassionate position will ”create a point of common ground between pro-choice and anti-choice camps.” http://rhrealitycheck.org/article/2013/08/21/repealing-welfare-family-cap-laws-a-common-goal-for-some-pro-and-anti-choice-groups/

Assemblywoman Susan Bonilla, (D-Concord) used a Pew Survey to cite statistics in her AB 926 to declare the alarming statistics on the decreased number of doctors “recommended” by ObamaCare to be available especially in rural communities. Her bill would have expanded the role of and supply of nurse assistants to supplant the role of the doctor in services to patients, such as abortion. She was really peeved when Governor Brown vetoed that bill.

The word “recommended” used here is very interesting. This is a subtle acknowledgement that there may not be an actual shortage of doctors, only an unattainable figure for sufficient doctors that the feds would like to see in practice to the state. That reminds me of the complaint about the former No Child Left Behind law. Educators complained that the requirements of the federal government were impossible to obtain regarding educational excellence for all. This “failure” resulted in federal oversight of some schools.

SB 744, Ricardo Lara, (D) Involuntary transfer to community schools. This sort of bill usually means that it is dealing with students who have been expelled from regular high school due to failing grades or disciplinary problems and requiring placement in Continuation high schools.

However, a Community School is defined differently than a Continuation High School, according to the Ca. Dept of Education web site. This is both an idea and a program. Students placed in community schools will receive community services in an education/community org. partnership, along with academic subjects and this facility will be open 24/7 to the general community, to receive such services as health homes, mental health and physical health assessments., nutrition, etc. It probably also means mixed-sex bathrooms. Oh, excuse me, mixed gender bathrooms. There’s still only two sexes, but 5 or so genders.

In the next few days we will be placing on our Callifeadvocates website, a long list of bills awaiting action. We have several articles and subjects listed on our website and invite you to begin linking to that site on a more frequent basis. www.callifeadvocates.org/blog.

Take away God, all respect for civil laws, all regard for even the most necessary institutions disappears; justice is scouted; the very liberty that belongs to the law of nature is trodden underfoot; and men go so far as to destroy the very structure of the family, which is the first and firmest foundation of the social structure.
