gall 1 10 18Guest Speaker at SBTPP

Join the Sutter Buttes Tea Party Patriots on January 15th, 2018 as we host District 3 Assemblyman James Gallagher. Assemblyman Gallagher will review current legislation of interest to residents of the Yuba-Sutter and surrounding areas. He will also have an update on the condition of the Oroville Dam and the progress of repairs and share his upcoming plans for the New Year. This New Year looks to be a win for conservatives in California as currently 2 democratic assemblymen have resigned their post due to sexual misconduct and several more are being investigated. This means there is no longer a ‘super majority’ in the Assembly and the democrats can’t shove any unwanted and bad legislation down our throats!

Fletcher as vice chairman

Marysville, Ca.

The Yuba County Board of Directors today reelected Brent Hastey as board chairman and Randy Fletcher as the vice chairman for 2018.

The election was held at the YCWA Board of Directors’ first public meeting of the year.

“I want to thank the agency for letting me lead another year and to reiterate how proud I am to be a part of YCWA and the work that it does to benefit our community,” said Hastey.

Hastey and Fletcher have served on the YCWA Board of Directors since 2015. Hastey also served on the board of directors from 1993 to 2000, and was recently appointed as president of the Association of California Water Agencies.

“I think we are in a great position with our current chair, both locally and at the state level,” said Fletcher. “This reelection will allow YCWA to continue to foster strong relationships with local, state and federal agencies and benefit the people who live and work in Yuba County.”

Both directors will serve in their appointed positions through December.

Submitted by Stephen Frank's California Political News And Views

Acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Thomas Homan said California “better hold on tight” after its liberal Democratic governor allowed a sanctuary state law to take effect this week.

Neil Cavuto said that Gov. Jerry Brown claimed the law will protect illegal immigrants living quietly in the shadows of society from law enforcement intent on “yanking them out of there.”

“I think it’s terrible,” Homan said, adding that Brown’s action put politics in front of public safety.

He said that rank-and-file police officers are opposed to the new measure and that Brown’s administration didn’t consult them before approving the law.

“If [Brown] thinks he is protecting the community, he’s doing quite the opposite,” Homan said. “[Brown] is knowingly putting law enforcement at risk.

“There’s no sanctuary from law enforcement,” he said. “California better hold on tight – they’re about to see a lot more deportation officers. If politicians don’t protect their communities then ICE will.”

Homan said illegal alien smuggling organizations will use the California law as a “selling point” and that Brown “bit off a lot more than he can chew.”

Homan said that Brown and other sanctuary-jurisdiction leaders may have violated 8 U.S. Code § 1324 – relating to “harboring certain aliens.”

He said he hopes the Justice Department will look into whether officials can be criminally charged under the statute.

According to text of the federal law cited by Homan, any person “knowing... the fact that an alien has come to... the United States in violation of the law, conceals, harbors or shields from detection... such [an] alien in any place” can face fines and/or up to several years in prison.

Reiterate Need to Address Unresolved Issues before New License

Oroville, Ca.

Today, Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale), Senator Jim Nielsen (R-Tehama), and Assemblymember James Gallagher (R-Yuba City) reiterated their request to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) that it delay the issuance of the new license for the Oroville Dam Facilities until certain conditions are met.

Last August, Nielsen, Gallagher, and a coalition of downstream stakeholders sent a letter to FERC urging for a delay of the new license. Congressman LaMalfa made a similar request last July.

Despite concerns from the community and North State lawmakers, the California Department of Water Resources is eager to move forward with the new license implementation. The Department sent a letter to FERC in December urging the new license to be issued expeditiously.

In a comprehensive survey conducted last fall, downstream residents were asked if they believe Department of Water Resources should not be issued a 50-year license to operate the dam until the cause of the spillway collapse has been identified, operations at the dam have been modified to address safety concerns and downstream impacts are addressed. Of the 3,322 residents who completed the survey, 85.1% agreed that the license should not be issued until these conditions were met.

Sheriff Candidate Jeff Pierce will be having a $15 "Spaghetti Feed Fundraiser" on Saturday, January 13th from 5:00 P,M. to 8:00 P.M. at the Yuba-Sutter County Fairgrounds, Franklin Hall, Yuba City.

Chefs for the dinner are: Sheriff Parker, Retired Sheriff Denny, Retired Sheriff Brandwood and Retired Sheriff Tindel.

For tickets call Gary Tindel at 530-870-8743

Sierra Sun Times, December 16

On Thursday, December 14th Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones issued a cease and desist order requiring the California FAIR Plan to immediately terminate a recent moratorium on writing new fire insurance coverage in wildfire-impacted areas. The FAIR Plan, which exists as a state-sponsored “last resort” insurance plan for homeowners who can’t find insurance coverage from another provider, recently placed a moratorium on issuing insurance policies in certain zip codes impacted by wildfires.

The Commissioner’s order demanded immediate termination of the moratorium on the basis that the FAIR Plan has no statutory allowance to take such an action. Anyone who has been impacted by wildfires and denied coverage under the FAIR Plan should contact the California Insurance Commissioner’s Office through their consumer hotline at (800) 927-4357.

The Supreme Court already knows that when DACA gets to it Court, the Executive Order giving 800,000 illegal aliens amnesty—after Congress said NO, is unconstitutional. Maybe it will take a court case, rather than Congressional action to end this corrupt practice of a President, Obama, play fast and loose with the rules—and as we now know, allowing lots of criminals to stay in this country.

“Although the Supreme Court has removed (for now) one unnecessary burden to elimination of DACA, the final judicial word has not been said

On Dec. 20, in an unsigned, four-page opinion, the Supreme Court struck down a lower court order that severely burdened efforts by the Trump administration to end the Obama administration’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which has shielded certain younger illegal aliens from deportation.

This is good news, a helpful sign that the Supreme Court will not give unelected judges carte blanche to hamstring the federal government’s legitimate efforts to enforce immigration law restrictions, consistent with the current statutory law.”

Of course the Fake News media refused to discuss this decision or point out the lawlessness of Obama. Instead they are upset that Trump is obeying his oath of office...that is the crime. I would allow all 800,000 to stay in this country—all they have to do is go back to their home country and apply, like honest people do.

Information for this article is from an article by Alden Abbott of the Daily Signal.

Mr. Speaker:

I opposed the House version of the tax reform bill because the loss of broad-based deductions like state and local taxes would have caused significant tax increases on many of my middle-class constituents in the high-tax, high-cost state of California. It increased the marginal tax rate on high income earners and abolished life-line deductions such as casualty loss, medical expenses and student interest. I urged that we should leave no taxpayer behind.

I want to thank Chairman Brady, the Republican Leadership and the conference committee for heeding these concerns. Their final product exceeds my expectations, and on behalf of California taxpayers I can now offer my enthusiastic support.

The new version leaves the casualty loss, medical expense and student interest deductions intact. No family needs to fear being ruined by taxes after a major declared disaster or illness, and graduates can continue to plan their lives knowing interest on their student loans will not be taxed. The new bill eases the proposed limit on mortgage interest deductions and allows up to $10,000 of state and local taxes to be deducted – all important improvements for Californians.

Most importantly, the lower tax rates in this bill now more than compensate in almost every case for the remaining limits on state and local tax and mortgage interest deductions. Even taxpayers who lose tens of thousands of dollars of deductions will still pay lower taxes than they do today.

For example, a couple earning $60,000 with a $300,000 home and three adult dependents would have paid $200 more in taxes under the old bill – but under the new version they will SAVE $340. A couple earning $150,000 with a $750,000 home and one child would have paid $1,200 of additional taxes under the old House bill. In the new bill, that same family will SAVE $720.

The business tax provisions are especially important, because they will restore American workers to an internationally competitive position. According to economists ranging from Martin Feldstein to Arthur Laffer, these provisions alone will produce $5 trillion of new economic activity over the next decade – that’s $40,000 per household -- including $2 trillion of new tax revenues to all levels of government.

Last Friday I toured AMPAC, a local company making the active ingredient in several cancer and epilepsy drugs. Their product is then shipped to Ireland to make the actual medicine because the corporate tax in the United States is 35 percent and in Ireland it’s just 12 ½ percent. Their CEO, Aslam Malik, told me that if they gave their product away for free, the final medicine could still not be competitively manufactured in the United States – solely because of our taxes. He expects their local company will grow dramatically because of this tax reform – employing hundreds more families both directly and indirectly as they expand everything from payroll to infrastructure.

That’s what the Marxists just don’t understand. Businesses don’t pay business taxes. Businesses collect business taxes from just three sources: from consumers through higher prices; from employees through lower wages, and from investors through lower earnings – usually pension plans and IRAs. We have the highest corporate tax in the industrialized world, and commerce and capital simply move around it – leaving our workers behind. That’s one of the reasons why we averaged 1 ½ percent under Obama – worse than any President since Herbert Hoover – and lost an entire decade of prosperity.

The Marxists tell us that this is just trickle-down economics and it has never worked. In fact, it has ALWAYS worked. It worked when Warren Harding did it in the 1920’s; when John F. Kennedy did it in the 1960’s, when Ronald Reagan did it in the 1980’s and lest we forget, when Bill Clinton approved the biggest capital gains tax cut in American history.

Concerns over the deficit are legitimate and must be addressed by spending reforms this coming year. We must always remember that both taxes and debt are driven by spending.

The proof of these policies will manifest itself over the coming year – and every American will be able to decide for themselves if this has made them better off. That’s probably why the left has pulled out all the stops to defeat it. Their arguments are the same economically illiterate attacks filled with class-envy that they made against Reagan. When the American people awakened one day to find it was morning again in America, the left was discredited for a generation.

Let history repeat itself beginning today, with this vote.

Steph 12 20 17By Stephanie McKenzie, Marysville City Council Member

I want to thank the voters of Marysville for electing me to the City Council in 2016. December 6th marked my one-year anniversary as a Council Member, and it has been my honor and privilege to serve you, as well as my great joy to get to know many of you and take part in numerous wonderful events and projects in our communities.

Last January my intention was to send a New Year’s greeting for 2017 to say hello and let you know that I believed 2017 would be a year to remember in Marysville, and so it has proven to be in many ways. During my campaign, inspiring hope for change was a theme I realized has become my reason for seeking office, and continues to be my message today. I believe that with God nothing is impossible, and that even though we have seen discouraging days as a community, with charactered leadership and a unified effort we can see our beloved little city flourish again.

We will be starting 2018 with new leaders in the positions of Community Development Director, Jim Bermudez; City Manager, Marti Brown; and acting Chief of Police, Lt. Chris Sachs. The Council is very excited about the strong team we are building and believe that we are going to hit the ground running in 2018!

Thank you, everyone who loves Marysville and has contributed to her well-being and charm throughout the years. How appropriate to be celebrating this season of joy together as we usher in with great anticipation a brand new year and a brand new day of renewal, unity, and blessing for our community.

In the child of winter and under the sparkle of holiday lights, hope is arising in Marysville once again. Merry Christmas, Marysville! May your days be merry and bright!

Lets get real. The Left believes in science. I agree. Take a DNA test of Caitlin Jenner and you will find Bruce Jenner. On a recently podcast Ben Shapiro noted that I a male can claim to be a female, people like me, 70 years old, can claim and be accepted as a 30 year old—if say I am 30 years old. You can want to be an apple, but you are still a human being, based on DNA, you are a male or female.

“Biological sex is not assigned. Sex is determined at conception by our DNA and is stamped into every cell of our bodies. Human sexuality is binary. You either have a normal Y chromosome, and develop into a male, or you don’t, and you will develop into a female. There are at least 6,500 genetic differences between men and women. Hormones and surgery cannot change this.

An identity is not biological, it is psychological. It has to do with thinking and feeling. Thoughts and feelings are not biologically hardwired. Our thinking and feeling may be factually right or factually wrong.”

Should we enable folks with psychological issues? Do we help them by pretending they are not what they are? Is it good for them to continue being pret4enders instead of finding the root cause of their issues—as in this case:

“I had one patient we’ll call Andy. Between the ages of 3 and 5, he increasingly played with girls and “girl toys” and said he was a girl. I referred the parents and Andy to a therapist. Sometimes mental illness of a parent or abuse of the child are factors, but more commonly, the child has misperceived family dynamics and internalized a false belief.

In the middle of one session, Andy put down the toy truck, held onto a Barbie, and said, “Mommy and Daddy, you don’t love me when I’m a boy.” When Andy was 3, his sister with special needs was born, and required significantly more of his parents’ attention. Andy misperceived this as “Mommy and Daddy love girls. If I want them to love me, I have to be a girl.” With family therapy Andy got better.

Today, Andy’s parents would be told, “This is who Andy really is. You must ensure that everyone treats him as a girl, or else he will commit suicide.”

Yuba City. Ca

The Yuba City Police Department will participate in the “Know Your Limit” Campaign in the upcoming months.

The “Know Your Limit” program involves police officers visiting various drinking establishments in the early evening hours. These officers mix and interact with patrons in a friendly, non-threatening way in an effort to educate them on the effect of alcohol on the body. The officers hand out educational materials that contain information about the alcohol content of various drinks, DUI penalties, and suggestions for alternatives to driving while consuming alcohol. The officers also answer questions while interacting with the patrons and staff. The officers do not ask for identification, but for statistical purposes they may keep records of gender, age and the city of residence of those they contact. Patrons are asked how much they’ve had to drink and if they think they could safely drive. These patrons are then offered the opportunity to test their perception by voluntarily checking their potential impairment with a Preliminary Alcohol Screening Device (PAS). Anyone with a higher Blood Alcohol Content is shown how easy it is to reach a level that can impair and are warned not to drive. The program’s primary purpose is to educate drinkers on being responsible.

The Yuba City Police Department invites the participation of representatives of community service programs and other agencies such as Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC) who have a vested interest in the goal of reducing DUI drivers, collisions and fatalities. These exchanges promote learning, the sharing of successful techniques and procedures, and increases teamwork between agencies that have a mutual interest in alcohol related problems.

The “Know Your Limit” program has proven to be an effective way to reach the public; it makes officers more approachable, provides more transparency about how the PAS devices work, and ultimately

provides a greater impact than past enforcement practices. For example, if the Police Department arrests three people in one night, only those three people are affected. If the Police Department contacts 30 to 50 people in a night, they stand to have a greater impact on reducing DUI deaths and injuries. In addition, the contacts are positive and a more pleasurable experience for both the citizens and the officers. Drinking establishments have the added benefit of seeing officers in their businesses more frequently, assisting their employees with education, identifying potential problems and addressing concerns with patrons. This facilitates communication between officers and business owners, creating a more comfortable and professional working relationship. The fact that police officers are interacting more often and more closely with businesses allows them to have a better relationship with the community, to keep abreast of developing trends, and to identify problems earlier.

Funding for this program is provided to the Yuba City Police Department by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reminding everyone to “Report a Drunk Driver – Call 9-1-1.”

E Thompson  12 13 17Wheatland, Ca.

With twenty years of experience in the Assessor’s Office, 47-year-old Wheatland resident, Ernie Thompson, has announced his candidacy for Yuba County Assessor in 2018.

“The people entrust the Assessor with the duty to carry out their will in the assessment of taxable property. They need an Assessor who will educate them on the law, apply the law equitably, and also act as an advocate by pointing out inequities within the law when discovered.”

Ernie’s career as an appraiser in the Assessor’s Office started in 1995 with Yuba County. His journey includes over 9 years with Yuba County and 8 years with Sutter County. The last two and a half years he has been the Chief Appraiser for Nevada County where he manages the 12-member valuation division. He has an Advanced Appraisal Certificate with the California State Board of Equalization that includes the Auditor-Appraiser Designation, and from 2005 to 2009 he held a Certified General Appraisal License with the California Bureau of Real Estate Appraisers.

“I have worked for three different Assessor’s Offices over the last 20 years each one with a different approach to processing the workload. This has given me the opportunity to appraise every type of property, gain an extensive knowledge of the California Revenue and Taxation Code, and serve under the leadership of 5 different Assessors. I have learned invaluable leadership lessons from each of them. I know appraisal, the law, and what it takes to lead the Assessor’s Office.”

Ernie is endorsed by Nevada County Assessor Sue Horne, several Assessor’s Office staff members, as well as business, farm and community leaders.

“It has been a true pleasure to work with Ernie. He has a strong work ethic as well as excellent appraisal and management skills. Yuba County would be well-served to have Ernie Thompson as their next Assessor. Ernie has a compassionate yet fair approach in serving taxpayers and administering California’s property tax laws.” Nevada County Assessor Sue Horne.

Ernie is a 1988 Graduate of Wheatland High School. He earned an Associate’s Degree form Yuba College in Business Administration and a Bachelor’s Degree from Sonoma State University in Business Management.

Ernie was raised in Wheatland and has called Wheatland home for most of his adult life. He has grown up, attended school, worked, and raised a family in the Yuba Sutter area. Over the years, he has served two terms as City Councilman for the City of Wheatland, coached numerous youth sports teams, volunteered time for several community organizations, and been an active leader in his church. “It would be a privilege to serve and represent the citizens of Yuba County as their Assessor.”

tea party Jeanette Finicum 1  12 13 17With Guest Speaker Jeanette Finicum

Yuba City, Ca.

The new Feather River Tea Party Patriots announced Jeanette Finicum, widow of LaVoy Finicum who was ambushed and murdered by FBI agents, will be the Special Guest Speaker for their next Meeting, Monday, December 18, 2017.

Jeanette Finicum, a stay-at-home mom of 11 children, was married 23 years to Robert “LaVoy” Finicum, an unarmed Arizona rancher killed by federal and state "authorities" after a three-week occupation of the Malheur Wildlife Refuge in Burns, Oregon. “With him gone, all of the responsibilities have fallen to me,” she said.

LaVoy, author of Only By Blood and Suffering, was shot three times in the back January 26, 2016, after he exited his vehicle with his hands up. His car skidded off the icy road when he avoided hitting a police roadblock set up on a blind curve in the snowy Malheur National Forest. His evasive maneuver saved the other occupants in the vehicle from assassination by snipers set up around the roadblock. No arrest warrants had been issued.

Wikipedia states, “On January 2, 2016, armed militants seized the headquarters of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Harney County, Oregon, United States and continued to occupy it until law enforcement made a final arrest on February 11, 2016. Their leader was Ammon Bundy, who participated in the 2014 Bundy standoff at his father's Nevada ranch.” A jury found all Oregon standoff defendants not guilty of federal conspiracy and gun charges.

The “armed militants” were American citizens exercising their First and Second Amendment rights to protest government tyranny after the government sent Oregon ranchers Dwight Hammond, Jr., 73, and his son Steven Hammond, 46, back to prison after they were released. (The Hammonds had lit backfires on their own land that went onto public land managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to prevent fires set by BLM from destroying the Hammond’s property as BLM has done to other ranchers’ properties.) Clinton Foundation took massive payoffs, promised Hammond Ranch and other publicly owned lands to Russians along with one-fifth of our uranium ore

Securing the future of California agriculture will require consistent, long-term and unified efforts, California Farm Bureau Federation President Paul Wenger said today. Wenger spoke during his annual address at the 99th CFBF Annual Meeting in Garden Grove.

Instant communication as represented by smartphone technology, Wenger said, can lure people into thinking that public policies affecting farms and ranches could be resolved quickly through social media, for example.

But the most effective way to sway public policy, he said, “is long-term, consistent, working with individuals, taking them on tours on farms, supporting them politically, getting them out and educating them about agriculture. It’s not fast, it’s not easy, but those who work the hardest the longest and invest the most are probably going to be successful.”

To influence the debate in a largely urbanized state such as California, Wenger said, means working with government officials, political candidates and elected leaders who may have little if any background in agriculture.

“We have to get out of our comfort zone and start dealing with some people we normally don’t deal with,” he said, adding that he is proud of Farm Bureau’s work in that regard.

After eight years as president, Wenger has served his maximum term in office, and urged Farm Bureau and other agricultural organizations to work together for the greater good of farmers and ranchers.

“I appreciate the opportunity to work with all of you here. I do love this organization and everybody that’s out here,” Wenger said. “We have got to continue to work together.”

Tom Reusser 0007  12 6 17for Sutter County Superintendent of Schools

Yuba City, Ca.

Yuba-Sutter educator Tom Reusser announced today that he will seek election for Sutter County’s School Superintendent in 2018.

Reusser, has held leadership positions at both the smallest and the largest schools in the Sutter County district during his tenure of more than 20 years. He began his career with Sutter County schools as a Teacher, but soon was promoted to Superintendent/Principal of Winship Elementary School District (now Winship/ Robbins Elementary School District). He served as the Assistant Principal at Gray Avenue School, Andros Karperos School and most recently was the Principal of River Valley High School where he not only managed the largest educational site budget in Sutter County, but also managed more than 170 staff members.

“As Superintendent, I’ll have a greater opportunity to impact the lives of children, which is why I went into the field of education”, stated Reusser. “I have been preparing for the position of Sutter County Superintendent of Schools throughout my career by accepting increasingly challenging responsibilities, becoming proficient at managing large budgets and leading staff with honesty, integrity and always with the best interest of students first and foremost.”

Among Reusser’s top priorities are to restore a level of funding for ROP programs in Sutter County, increase test scores, and to make sure districts in the county have the support they need for their students to succeed.

Reusser and his wife Roberta live in Yuba City. They have 4 children, all alumni of Sutter County schools, and 2 grandchildren. He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Studies and was awarded a Master of Education degree in 2000. He is a member of Yuba City Noon Kiwanis, Sutter County Community Action Agency, Family Soup, St. Andrew Presbyterian Church and has coached both volleyball and swimming.

On Jan. 1, 2018, as most gun owners in the state are aware, new ammo laws will come into effect.

It’s worth noting the new regulations again, as this will have a significant impact throughout the gun community, from mom and pop stores to someone just trying to purchase ammo.

The following will be incorporated into the law of the land per Laura Cromwell of Cabela’s:

Vendors must have Department of Justice approval to sell ammo. Current retailers with an ammo supply may stop providing ammunition altogether due to the process of getting DOJ consent. For hunters and shooters in rural areas who rely on mom-and-pop sporting goods stores, they may need to seek out a new supplier as well as plan on driving a lot farther to find the ammunition of their choice.Importing ammunition— Californians must go to an ammunition vendor that has been approved by the DOJ. If a resident orders ammunition from a website, the ammo in question must be sent to an approved vendor for the consumer to pick up. Purchasing ammunition out of state and then returning to California runs the risk of carrying a misdemeanor charge of transporting ammo across state lines.Transferring ammunition— For anyone who has ammunition they are looking to part with, you will need to enlist a DOJ-approved vendor to complete the transaction, same way you would transfer a firearm to a new owner.

Meeting of the New California Movement

Yuba City, Ca.

Paul Preston, Chairman of the Sutter County Council of Representatives (SCCR) and Ross Patterson, Chairman of the Yuba County Council of Representatives (YCCR) of the “New California State Movement,” announced they will be holding a joint meeting of concerned citizens from the surrounding counties interested in being involved in a movement to develop a pathway forward to form a new state.

The County Councils of Representatives (CCR) are designed to provide citizens an avenue to openly discuss, brainstorm, and get questions answered including perspectives from a greater number of people regarding a constitutional state split from California.

They are looking for committed citizens who want to become involved in the Sutter/Yuba County Council of Representatives and want to be part of the historic formation of a New State.

Members of the current CCRs will be present to provide information and updates on the New State movement and answer your questions.

The meeting will be Monday, December 11, 2017, at the Caltrans Building, Sierra Nevada Conference Room, 703 B Street, Marysville, CA 95901.

There is no membership requirement to attend and everyone is welcome. Doors open at 6:00 pm; meeting begins at 6:30 pm.

“The participation of informed citizens is required for good governance.”

Yuba City, Ca.

The new Feather River Tea Party Patriots announced Assemblyman James Gallagher will be the Special Guest Speaker for their next Meeting, Monday, December 4, 2017.

Assemblyman Gallagher represents the 3rd California Assembly District encompassing parts of the Sacramento Valley. Prior to being elected to the State Assembly, he was the Sutter County District 5 Supervisor.

Lately, Assemblyman Gallagher has been focused on Oroville Dam. He’s still fighting for transparency, accountability, and long-term changes to operations and maintenance. It’s not enough to fix the spillway and call it good. There are also downstream impacts that need to be addressed, like the massive silt buildup in the river.

He’ll also be talking about his “Representation Equality Act” (ACA 16) and his efforts to change the makeup in Sacramento to bring more common-sense voices to the State Capitol.

Don’t forget – Our regular feature In The News with Paul Preston, Agenda 21 Radio, will follow our Special Guest Speaker. Paul will be discussing events of the day.

Following the meeting, everyone is invited to our pie and ice cream social.

Attorney for Pacific Legal Foundation Dec 4th

Jeremy Talcott

Property Rights. Every citizen has them but are they safe? Property rights are the basis of our Liberty. Your life is your property. Your land is your property. Your stuff is your property. The Pacific Legal Foundation (PLF) is an organization that has argued before our Supreme Court many times and won. Of the last 11 appearances before our Supreme Court, the PLF has walked away with 9 wins. That’s one darn good track record.

Jeremy Talcott joined the Pacific Legal Foundation in 2016. He focuses on property rights, administrative law, and the separation of powers and federalism principles that (ought to) define American government.

Jeremy obtained his undergraduate degree in Communications from the University of Central Florida, but for every minute he spent in classes, he spent five more playing guitar or bass in several noteworthy-for-their-obscurity rock and roll bands. A few tours across the country later, Jeremy realized that he was spending all of his free time reading about the principles of liberty and decided to make a career out of it. He graduated cum laude from Chapman University, Fowler School of Law in Orange, California, where he was president of the Federalist Society, Senior Articles Editor of the Chapman Law Review, and “that guy who keeps trying to talk about the Constitution” of the Chapman Moot Court team. His two favorite parts of law school were externing for Judge Andrew J. Guildford in the Central District of California and getting the top grade in Administrative Law from his favorite professor.

Jeremy has one extremely funny veterinarian wife, two rambunctious twin boys, three hungry cats, two nervous dogs, and a large pile of unread books, all fighting for his attention. He and his wife are slowly working their way through IMDB’s list of the Top 250 Horror Films of All Time.

By Valerie Richardson, The Washington Times,

Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch sat Sunday for “The Star-Spangled Banner,” as he has done all season, but then stood for the Mexican national anthem before his team faced the New England Patriots in Mexico City.

Lynch’s double move, reported by the Associated Press and Boston Globe, was reminiscent of the Sept. 24 game in London, in which about two dozen players stood for “God Save the Queen” after kneeling for the U.S. national anthem.

Not surprisingly, the decision drew a reaction on Twitter, with some applauding Lynch with comments like “legend” and “awesome,” and others blasting him.

“Marshawn Lynch doesn’t protest Mexico’s long history of human rights abuses by corrupt politicians but sits for our National Anthem — the ‘land of the free and the home of the brave.’ Disgusting,” said commentator Neil A. Carousso.
