01/22/21: Sad day for innocent babies on 48th anniversary of Roe v. Wade

SAVECALIFORNIA.COM NEWS RELEASE

Janutary 22, 2021 -- For Immediate Release

Sad Day for Innocent Babies on 48th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade

Statement by Randy Thomasson on California, the 'Abortion State'

Sacramento, California (January 22, 2021) -- On the 48th anniversary of the infamous Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton Supreme Court decisions, which have resulted in more than 62 million deaths of preborn babies through the 9th month of pregnancy, Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com, a leading family issues organization promoting moral virtues for the common good, has issued the following statement:

"Given the irrefutable, scientific facts of ultrasound photos of babies in the womb, how can anyone say this isn't a preborn child? Lest anyone be confused, a baby in an ultrasound photo, at any stage of pregnancy, is the same precious human being growing there since being conceived by his or her father and mother. This is the miracle of reproduction.

"Most people don't realize that Roe v. Wade and its companion case, Doe v. Bolton, legalized killing preborn babies through all 9 months of pregnancy and for virtually any reason. Today in California, because of no reporting requirements, babies from one to nine months are being regularly killed unbeknownst to the general public. Yet these deaths should deeply disturb everyone who has an intact conscience. Or would it be more disturbing if the abortionist used a gun? And why say dying from a virus is tragic, but not say dying from abortion is tragic too? With more estimated abortions than any other state, California has morphed into the 'Abortion State,' where the official government policy is to promote the slaughter of its most vulnerable citizens.

"Every abortion stops a beating heart of a living person made up of unique, individual, human DNA. If you believe that it's morally wrong to kill innocent human beings, that the Jewish Holocaust was evil, that the Armenian Holocaust was evil, and that the murderous regimes of Joseph Stalin, Mao Tse-Tung and Pol Pot were evil, then you must regard abortion as evil because every abortion barbarically slaughters an innocent human being. Babies in the womb who are sentenced to death by abortion are dying in a most horrible way, grieving God's heart and permanently scarring mothers who permit their children to be killed.

"It's a terrible irony that you're safer on California's death row than you are in your mother's womb. California taxpayers pay to clothe and feed serial murderers, yet the same taxpayers are forced to subsidize the torturous killing of innocent babies in the womb. It's another terrible irony that much of California is in forced lockdown, ostensibly to 'save lives,' when our Democrat-run state government couldn't care less about the lives of our most vulnerable human beings. Yet these nascent infants have an innate right to life. They haven't done anything wrong and aren't "guilty" of anything, but are precious baby humans created in the image of God. A society that kills its most vulnerable inhabitants is not a civilized or compassionate society."

09/12/20 Pro-family response to Gov. Gavin Newsom siding with child molesters

SAVECALIFORNIA.COM NEWS RELEASE

September 12, 2020 -- For Immediate Release

Pro-family response to Gov. Gavin Newsom siding with child molesters
Thomasson: "Newsom's given a green light to child abusers, exempting them from being automatically listed on the sex offender registry. California children are now less protected."
 
Sacramento, California (September 12, 2020) -- In response to Democrat California Governor Gavin Newsom signing SB 145 without comment, statewide pro-child, pro-family leader Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com, has issued the following statement:
 
"Newsom's given a green light to child abusers, exempting them from being automatically listed on the sex offender registry," Thomasson said. "California children are now less protected, and going outside to play will be more dangerous than ever."
 
In its SB 145 opposition letter, the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) wrote, "SB 145 exempts persons convicted of non-forcible voluntary sodomy with a minor, oral copulation with a minor or sexual penetration with a minor from having to automatically register as a sex offender if the person wasn't more than 10 years older than the minor at the time of the offense. According to the Child Advocacy Center, 1 in 3 girls and 1 in 5 boys are sexually abused before the age of 18. Additionally, approximately 20% of victims of sexual abuse are under the age of eight. This is absolutely unacceptable; as Californians, and law enforcement partners who are on the front lines called to sexual assault and domestic violence cases, laws like SB 145 will only enable pedophiles to prey on children closer to their age." (This portion of the association's opposition letter was included in the August 31, 2020 Senate Floor Analysis of SB 145.)
 
"It's deceptive to claim SB 145 is about 'consensual' sexual behavior, since minors cannot consent to sexual activity in California," Thomasson said. "And the only thing 'equal' in SB 145 is that a minor child, whether abused heterosexually or homosexually, is still abused, no matter the type of sex act done to him or her."
 
"Parents, grandparents, and prospective home-buyers still look online to see how many sex offenders are in their community and neighborhood, and where these sex offenders live," Thomasson said. "Yet with SB 145 exempting many molesters from this public stigma, Gavin Newsom and his super-majority Democrats are keeping parents and grandparents in the dark about sexual threats in close proximity to their children and grandchildren."

06/15/20: Gorsuch and Roberts betray our written Constitution by redefining 'sex'

SAVECALIFORNIA.COM NEWS RELEASE

June 15, 2020 -- For Immediate Release

Gorsuch and Roberts betray our written Constitution by redefining 'sex'
Thomasson: "These Republican judges should be ashamed that they joined all four Democrat judges and legislated from the bench, trampling the context, intent, and logic of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, and throwing the long-established civil-right standard of 'immutable characteristics' under the bus. Now any behavior can be a 'civil right,' with all the power of the federal government behind it to punish anyone who disagrees."

Sacramento, California (June 15, 2020) -- In response to today's opinion by the U.S. Supreme Court that Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act somehow says homosexuality and transgenderism, Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com, a leading pro-child, pro-family organization, has issued the following statement: 
 
"The context and legislative history of the 1964 Civil Rights Act is abundantly clear that the word 'sex' is the immutable characteristic of being either male or female. This was clearly understood by previous high courts and even by congressional Democrats who are currently trying to insert 'sexual orientation' and 'gender identity' into the Act. No one should be fooled -- this is legislating from the bench, which violates the Separation of Powers doctrine required in our U.S. Constitution.

"Gorsuch and Roberts have betrayed our written Constitution by redefining 'sex' the way they want to, instead of how the text and legislative history say it's defined. These Republican judges should be ashamed that they joined all four Democrat judges and legislated from the bench, trampling the context, intent, and logic of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, and throwing the long-established civil-right standard of 'immutable characteristics' under the bus. Now any behavior can be a 'civil right,' with all the power of the federal government behind it to punish anyone who disagrees. 

"This is a severe attack on religious freedom and private property rights. How dare these judges selfishly impose their own values on the rest of America. They lied when they pledged to 'support and defend the Constitution of the United States' and to 'faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent upon me ... under the Constitution and laws of the United States.' These self-centered, revisionist judges didn't uphold the written law -- they made themselves the law."

BACKGROUND:

Throughout Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, an individual's unchangeable, immutable characteristic of "race, color, religion, sex, or national origin" is afforded the highest legal scrutiny; with the exception of religion, changeable attributes and behaviors cannot achieve this status.

Previous Supreme Court decisions, such as Frontiero v. Richardson (1973), Plyler v. Do (1982), Lyng v. Castillo (1986), and Vieth v. Jubelirer (2004), fully recognized and abided by the immutability standard, acknowledging that only characteristics that are impossible to change can be considered for civil-rights status. 

Even honest court-watchers who support inclusion of "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" are criticizing this awful opinion.
 
There are tens of thousands of former homosexuals and former transsexuals, and no biological basis for homosexuality, bisexuality, or transsexuality. Therefore, "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" cannot qualify for civil-rights status, which requires immutable characteristics.

08/31/20 Toxicology report: George Floyd died of a drug overdose

SAVECALIFORNIA.COM NEWS RELEASE

August 31, 2020 -- For Immediate Release

Toxicology report: George Floyd died of a drug overdose
Thomasson: "Based on the evidence, George Floyd killed himself with a drug overdose. With no probable cause for murder charges, the four Minneapolis police officers should be released now."

Sacramento, California (August 31, 2020) -- In response to new evidence in the Minneapolis (Hennepin County, Minnesota) case against four police officers charged with murdering, or aiding and abetting in murdering, George Floyd on May 25, 2020, SaveCalifornia.com urges all Americans to stop repeating the lie that police killed Floyd.

"It is unjust, unconstitutional, and un-American to arrest, jail, charge, and convict someone when there's no probable cause or substantial evidence that a crime has been committed," said Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com, a leading pro-child, pro-family organization. "Based on the evidence, George Floyd killed himself with a drug overdose. With no probable cause for murder charges, the four Minneapolis police officers should be released now."

"'Black Lives Matter' activists need to stop repeating George Floyd's phrase, 'I can't breathe,' since Floyd's drug overdose had filled his lungs with fluid," added Thomasson. "A just person will blame George Floyd for his own death, not the officers, who were following established protocol in dealing with a suspect who's resisting arrest."

FACTS

Hennepin County Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Andrew Baker reported to county prosecutors that toxicology tests showed George Floyd's blood contained a fatal level of fentanyl, along with methamphetamine. And the autopsy found that Floyd's lungs were 2 to 3 times their normal weight.

In his May 31, 2020 meeting with county prosecutors, Baker said, "if Floyd had been found dead in his home" (or anywhere else) and there were no other contributing factors, he would "conclude that it was an overdose death."

Baker's June 3, 2020 report stated Floyd's autopsy identified "No life-threatening injuries," yet the toxicology report found several drugs in his blood: Fentanyl, Norfentanyl, 4-ANPP, Methamphetamine, THC metabolites (from cannabis), Cotinine (from tobacco), and Caffeine.

This evidence of a drug overdose corroborates evidence from the scene, including the testimony of Mr. Morries Hall, who was in the car with Floyd, on May 25, 2020.

From page 2 and 3 of the August 28, 2020 filing and motion to dismiss all charges against police officer Derek Chauvin:

When officers initially approached Mr. Floyd, a white object was visible in Mr. Floyd's mouth. (Ex. 9). At one point, Mr. Floyd turned away from officers, and when he faced them again, the white object was no longer visible. (Id.). Outside the vehicle, Mr. Floyd continued to struggle and actively resist the officers as they attempted to handcuff him.1 Officers noted that he was acting erratically and repeatedly inquired whether Mr. Floyd was drunk or "on something." (See, e.g. Ex. 2, Kueng BWC at 6:13 et seq.).

Officers also noted that Mr. Floyd had foam coming from his mouth. (Id. at 6:20). As an explanation, Mr. Floyd appears to say, "I was just hooping earlier." (Id. at 6:24). When questioned by police later, both of the passengers in Mr. Floyd's vehicle asserted their belief that Mr. Floyd was under the influence of narcotics. Ms. Hill told investigators that Mr. Floyd was "probably on some pills or something." (Ex. 4, Hill Int. at Bates 023033). On the day after the Cup Foods incident, Mr. Hall fled the State. (See Ex. 5, Hall Int., generally). Ultimately, Minnesota BCA agents had to travel to Texas, where Mr. Hall had been arrested, and interview him at a Texas Rangers station. (Id.).

A page 2 footnote details how Floyd exhibited similar behavior when stopped by police in 2019:

In May, 2019, Mr. Floyd was stopped as part of a narcotics investigation. At the time he was stopped, as here, Mr. Floyd was acting nervously, talking, moving around and refusing to show his hands. As here, Mr. Floyd was agitated and would not listen to officers' commands. (Ex. 21 at Bates 6530). Similarly, he "had put something in his mouth and was attempting to eat them." (Id.). As in the present case, officers had to physically remove Mr. Floyd from the car, and as they did, he continued talking and began to cry. (Id.). Mr. Floyd had several Oxycodin (an opioid) pills in his possession. (Id.). Cocaine (a stimulant) was also located in the vehicle. (Id.). Police had Mr. Floyd transported to a hospital, where he admitted that he had ingested "oxycodone or percocet (obtained off street)... while under arrest." (Ex. 22 at Bates 6910). Clearly, Mr. Floyd had a modus operandi in the way he acted when approached by police officers while attempting to conceal narcotics.

Page 4 of the August 28, 2020 filing continues:

When finally questioned in Texas, Mr. Hall, who had spent the entire day with Mr. Floyd up until and including the incident at Cup Foods, told investigators that he knew Mr. Floyd to use pills and that Mr. Floyd had stated his intention to do so on the day of his death. (Ex. 5, Hall Int. at Bates 27379). Hall told investigators that Mr. Floyd had a drug addiction. (Id.). Hall believed that Mr. Floyd had recently used a pill that Mr. Hall thought to be a combination of Adderall and "whatever they put in the ecstasy pill." (Id. at 27380). Mr. Hall suspected that Mr. Floyd had ingested drugs just prior to the May 25, 2020, incident because Mr. Floyd had been acting normal all day but, after returning to the vehicle from Cup Foods, Mr. Floyd fell asleep in the driver's seat of the car. (Id. at 27379). According to Mr. Hall, "it was so fast I look at him and I'm like all of sudden you know he's just sleeping, he was sleeping." (Id.; see Ex. 4. at Bates 23032-34 (Floyd "just nodded off")).

See the police bodycam video that the state attorney general, Keith Ellison, hid from the public for more than two months before it was leaked to the world via DailyMail.com on August 3, 2020. The video shows George Floyd resisting patient officers for several minutes. And the toxicology report confirms Floyd was high on drugs, which constricted his breathing and caused his demise.

ANALYSIS

Explaining Floyd's high-strung, drug-induced behavior was the toxicology report, which found Floyd had a massive overdose of the opioid fentanyl, along with methamphetamine. These harmful drugs -- which can cause "severe respiratory depression, circulatory collapse, coma, and death" -- explain Floyd's paranoia, aggression, and the breathing problems he had while standing and sitting.

Former federal and state prosecutor George Parry says the charges should have been immediately dropped, noting the drugs ingested by Floyd reveal why he repeatedly said "I can't breathe," even while in the back of the police car:

So there they were, staring at the just-received and damning toxicology report that blew to smithereens the whole prosecution theory that the police had killed Floyd. To their undoubted dismay, Dr. Baker, the chief medical examiner, had to concede that at 11 ng/mL, Floyd had "a fatal level of fentanyl under normal circumstances." He also conceded that the fentanyl overdose "can cause pulmonary edema," a frothy fluid build-up in the lungs that was evidenced by the finding at autopsy that Floyd's lungs weighed two to three times normal weight.

This is consistent with Officer Kueng's observation at the scene that Floyd was foaming at the mouth and, as found at autopsy, that his lungs were "diffusely congested and edematous."

In other words, like a drowned man, Floyd's lungs were filled with fluid. And that was the obvious and inescapable reason why Floyd kept shouting over and over again that he couldn't breathe even when he was upright and mobile.

"Justice must be blind and without favoritism or bias," Thomasson said. "No one can be charged with committing a crime without probable cause based on the available evidence. But the evidence for murder just wasn't and isn't there, and county prosecutors knew that at least three months ago. Three days, let alone three months, is too long to falsely imprison anyone and is blatantly unconstitutional. Derek Chauvin, Alexander Kueng, Thomas Lane, and Tou Thao are political prisoners who should be promptly released from incarceration, and restored to honorable status as law enforcement officers, with back pay, even if they have to relocate outside of politically-correct Minneapolis."

12/18/19: Why independent voter Randy Thomasson opposes Trump's impeachment

SAVECALIFORNIA.COM NEWS RELEASE

December 18, 2019 -- For Immediate Release

Why independent voter Randy Thomasson opposes Trump's impeachment
"Adam Schiff of Glendale and Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco should be embarrassed to proceed, since they have neither probable cause nor overwhelming evidence of any crime."

Sacramento, California (December 18, 2019) -- In light of today's expected vote of the U.S. House of Representatives to impeach President Donald Trump, Randy Thomasson, an independent voter and president of SaveCalifornia.com, a leading family issues organization promoting moral virtues for the common good, has issued the following statement: 

"If you were falsely charged with a crime, you'd demand due process and evidence. Unfortunately, we're seeing neither of these ethical and constitutional rights in the House Democrats' impeachment push against President Donald Trump.
 
"'Abuse of power' is a fact-free charge, since U.S. presidents are permitted tremendous latitude in their relations with other countries. For President Trump to ask the new Ukraine leader to demonstrate his anti-corruption campaign agenda by investigating how former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, famously enriched themselves in Ukraine, was not only permissible, it was the right thing to do. Ironically, it's the House Democrats who are abusing their power by providing no evidence at all that President Trump committed any crime, yet they're still trying to reverse an election through impeachment.
 
"'Obstruction of Congress,' the second empty charge, is only because the Trump Administration refused to testify and to provide confidential information that the House Democrats' "impeachment inquiry" demanded. Yet numerous presidents, both Democrats and Republicans, have both claimed and used executive privilege, based on constitutional separation of powers. The U.S. Supreme Court has not opined that this is 'obstruction,' and neither should the ruling Democrats.
 
"Impeachment leaders Adam Schiff of Glendale and Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco should be embarrassed to proceed, since they have neither probable cause nor overwhelming evidence of any crime committed by President Trump. This unconstitutional act is likely to backfire on them politically. Perhaps it already has, since independent voters oppose impeachment 49% to 34%.

"As a registered independent, I couldn't vote for Trump, but I am morally obligated to oppose the Democrats' impeachment charade due to lack of evidence. Because evidence is the only fair standard for charging or convicting anybody."
