Mark Your Calendar
From Janine Hansen, Director Nevada Families for Freedom: “Horrifying increases in disease for military because of Vaxx” Senator/Dr. Ron Johnson recently sent a letter to the Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin about injuries of servicemen and women potentially related to the COVID 19 shots. The Senator wrote: “Based on data from the Defense Medical Epidemiology Database (DMED)…reported that these whistleblowers found a significant increase in registered dianoses on DMED for miscarriages, cancer, and many other medical conditions in 2021 compared to a five-year aberage from 2016-2020. For example…registered diagnoses for neurological issues increased 10 times from a five-year average of 82,000 to 863,000 in 2021.”
Robert Beadles – spearheaded the massive turn-out yesterday at the County Commission meeting. Robert expressed his thanks and appreciation for those who showed up. He counted 320 in attendance. Incredible job. The battle we’re in is finally getting some traction. He is optimistic that something, God willing, will fix. It may not be everything we’re asking for, but if we can get paper ballots and precinct voting, we should be happy and proud. The petition is ongoing. At the Sec’y of State (SoS) Zoom meetings for the last 2 weeks, the legislative committee is talking under the guise of “adopting” certain regulations, which is really a euphemism for wanting to change and create new legislation without calling it legislation, because only the Legislature can change and create new legislation. We need to get rid of the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC), which has virtually removed no voters in the last 4 years.
Cindy Martinez – Cindy wanted us to know that the Deputy Secretary of State for Elections is Mark Wlaschin and he is the nephew of Chris Wlaschin, who was with Health & Human Services (HHS/Federal) and is now the Chief Information & Security for ES&S voting machines. Corruption at its finest. If you want to get these and other Twitter updates from Cindy, go to gunz_go_boom.
County Commissioner Jeanne Herman, our lone Conservative voice of reason on the Commission. Jeanne just wanted to thank everyone who showed up yesterday. She was so proud and believes it was the best Commission meeting ever.
Gary Schmidt – candidate for Assembly 40, which encompasses Carson City, Virginia City, new Washoe City, Hidden Valley and Geiger Grade areas. Gary believes his two runs against Ben Kieckhefer and his outing of Bob Larkin caused them to be politically dead. His lawsuits against various State and County governmental entities caused a little fairer treatment of John Q Public afterward. NRS241.035, in the Open Meeting Law (OML) ensures your public comment will be entered into the record. If you quote that when you open your comments to the County Commission or School Board or City Council or Legislature, your comments will be in the record Minutes of that hearing or meeting. [Good to know, Gary. Thanks for your insight and knowledge. – CF] Gary will be appearing at the Carson City Men’s Club on Feb 21 at 11:30am at Mallard’s Restaurant, 1875 Fair Way, Carson City with a full 45 minute program about his candidacy, OML and Public Records Law.
Mike Clark – candidate for County Commission, District 2 (south Reno). Mike pointed out headlines in the RGJ this week about the $4.4M settlement the Washoe County School District paid to the parents of a disabled child who was violated on a school bus by another student, a 12-year-old. We learned this back on Dec 8, 2021 at CTL. The School Board always settles these cases and the parents are then forced to sign a non-disclosure agreement and keep their mouths shut. The corruption is rampant and perhaps the worst in the state.
Mike is the current County Assessor and he introduced and endorsed Chris Sarman, running now for the Assessor’s seat. Chris’ opponent in the race for Assessor works at the State of Nevada Dept of Taxation.
Chris Sarman – candidate for County Assessor, endorsed by Mike Clark. Chris hunts, fishes, skis and coaches youth sports. He has a BS from UNR and is a 5th generation Nevadan. He has been in the Assessor’s office for nearly 15 years and he believes in transparency and working for you, the people. Let’s keep the State out of our local government.
Cathy Kennedy Reyes – candidate for School Board B. She is all about traditional education (3 Rs – reading, writing & ‘rithmetic). June 14 will be a red letter day and we must all turn out for the Primary vote. If you are a non-partisan, you can vote in the Primary for the non-partisan positions (School Board and City Council). But if you want to vote for other positions, you should re-register as a Republican or a Democrat before the June 14 Primary, so you can vote for other positions.
Colleen Westlake – candidate for School Board B. We are in the battle of good vs evil (not Republican vs Dem). We cannot do it without God, but we must help Him get our County back. The educational experience our kids are getting is not good. Agendas include CRT, social-emotional learning, equity, diversity, LGBTQXYZ. Colleen comes from a family of miners, ranchers and gaming. She is keenly aware that the education our kids are getting is not equipping them to be workforce material. The school system is failing our kids. We spend $9671 per student and only 39% of graduates are proficient in Math; 48% are proficient in reading. Colleen believes in traditional schooling, with no emotional-charged agenda. Current Bd of Trustees state they want to be a voice for families and kids, but they aren’t governing in that manner. We are top-heavy in administrators and short on teachers.
Melanie Sutton – candidate for School Board C. There is a Townhall on April 7 at Spanish Springs Library, for all school board candidates. Melanie has tried (and been successful) at getting many families to take their kids out of Washoe Schools and homeschool them. But there are still many who cannot do that, so she is the voice for those non-homeschooled kids. She recently had an interview with the 1776 Project and she felt it went very well. We have probably the most corrupt school district in the country, not just the state. On March 19, 2:00-5:00pm, there is a Kick-off Party for all Conservative Candidates at the Pure Country Canteen in Sparks. The website for all the Conservative candidates is www.savewcsd.com. If you go there, you can click on each candidate, read their bio, donate if you can, volunteer to walk precincts or pass out literature if you can.
Kenji Otto – candidate for School Board C. Kenji recently had a write-up in Republic Sentinel. Kenji served on a school board in Alpine, CA. As an instructor and examiner for the Air Force, he mentored several underlings, who excelled and exceeded him in rank. He was a trouble-shooter for the Air Force and was an E7 at age 24. Any troubled project in the public or private sector, Kenji has tackled by looking at the budget, finding the problems and weeding them out. He has fixed budgets, fixed personnel and then he moves on.
Robbie Maus – candidate for School Board F (At-Large). Robbie is a longtime Sparks resident, now in Cold Springs. She believes all children are created equal and in parental involvement and would work to promote that. She believes American history matters and there should be no mask mandates. She has worked with at-risk kids and has written curriculums.
February 19th Precinct Meetings – If you are currently a Central Committee (CC) member, your membership term expires with the Feb 19 Precinct Meetings. If you wish to re-up as a CC member or if you aspire to be on the CC, you must attend the County-wide Precinct Meetings on February 19 at various schools. An email was sent out from the Washoe Republican Party explaining all this, with links to how to find your precinct number and where that precinct meets on Feb 19. It will be sent again and calls are being made to CC members to remind you. It is just a Saturday morning, 8:30-11:00 but very, very important. At this meeting, aside from nominating an entirely new CC, delegates to the County Convention on March 19 will be elected. At the County Convention on March 19, delegates to the State Convention will be elected. At the State Convention, delegates to the National (RNC) Convention will be elected. The importance of these County-wide Precinct Meetings cannot be overstated.
Cindy Martinez – Running across her Twitter feed today, there was a graphic meme that said “98% of straight men refuse to perform oral sex on a feminine penis due to their bigotry and hatred of trans women… End genital based bigotry… your sexual orientation may be transphobic.” This is the kind of depravity that is trying to turn our world and all we know as decent and private completely upside down. She just wanted us to know the depths to which they’ll sink.
Penny Brock – I failed to call on her and she had hand-outs with news about what we are really up against. This is heartbreaking, how organized they are against us and how much sheer unadulterated hatred there is of Donald Trump.
1) Kerry Durmick sent a letter to the Senate Legislative Operations and Elections Committee on 5/26/21, introducing herself as “the Nevada State Director with All Voting is Local, a voting rights project housed at The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights. All Voting is Local is also a proud member of the Let Nevadans Vote Coalition. All Voting is Local fights to remove discriminatory barriers to voting before the next election, empowering communities of color, young people, low-income americans, and voters with disabilities, so that all voice are heard.”
Durmick goes on to write, “All Voting is Local is in full support of AB121. We need a voting system that is open, accessible and secure for all voters. All citizens with the right to vote have a right to proper accommocations and a variety of options when registering to vote and voting. This bill would allow for voters with disabilities to register to vote and request and/or cast a Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA) ballot using Nevada’s Effective Absentee System for Elections referred to as Nevada EASE. This process would eliminate components of the vote by mail process that are inaccessible for people who, independently, cannot physically handle, read, or mark the ballot.”
Further, she writes, “Nevada needs to ensure that we are protecting everyone’s right and freedom to vote. This bill will protect and expand the right to vote of people with disabilities. All Voting is Local strongly supports AB121 and asks for your support.”
2) The Center for Tech and Civic Life provided millions of dollars in private funding for the elections that came from a $350M donation from Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan. The Center for Tech and Civic Life gave COVID-19 response grants of varying amounts to 2500 municipalities in 49 states. https://www.wisconsinrightnow.com/2021/05/26/center-for-tech-and-civic-life/
Penny Brock’s question: Did Nevada, Vegas or Reno or any rurals get “COVID 19 grants” from CTCL?
3) Democracy Fund is an independent and nonpartisan, private foundation that confronts deep-rooted challenges in American democracy while defending against new threats. Since 2014, the Democracy Fund has made grants of more than $150M in support of those whorking to strengthen our democracy through the pursuit of a vibrant and diverse public square, free and fair elections, effective and accountable government, and a just and inclusive society. https://www.voterstudygroup.org and read what they’re all about.
4) Where did the vote from home concept come from? * National Vote at Home Institute, P.O. Box 65752, Washington, DC 20035 https://www.voteathome.org
* The National Vote-at-Home-Initiative. FIND YOUR STATE. MAKE A PLAN. LET’S #VOTEATHOME.
* In order to actively increase access to mail-in ballots, an organization called Vote From Home 2020 launched on May 13, specifically to help mobilize almost half a million “dual-risk voters”. https://www.fastcompany.com>90504629>this-group-will-make-sure-swing-state-voters-get-a-mail-in-ballot-so-they-dont-have-to-risk-in-person-voting
