All Jefferson Roads Lead To
"Constitutional Carry Rally"

Time is running out to reserve your charter bus, form a car pool, or ask for the day off so you can attend the “Constitution Carry Rally” on Tuesday, October 8, at the Robert Matusui Courthouse, located at 501 “I” Street, Sacramento.

This is Mark Baird's Open Carry case against California State Attorney General Becerra. As most of you know the original September 6th hearing was rescheduled to this new hearing date of October 8th. About 150 people did show up and rally at the court house in September to show their support for Mark and our 2nd amendment rights.

As of this writing, the time for the rally and hearing has not been confirmed. So keep a watch on your emails and/or tune into Jefferson State of Mine on KCNR Radio 1460, from 9 to 10 am on Sundays. You can listen to the live broadcast on your computer or at a later time by clicking archive on the KCNR website.

Be sure to get the word out to all in your counties and tell them to pack their Constitutions in their holsters, bring their signs and fly those SOJ and American flags. For more information, call Terry or Sally Rapoza at 530-246-9706.

Children Robbed of Their Childhood

In New York City and Washington, D.C., you heard children chanting “Don't Eat Cows, Eat the Rich” and “Free the Nipple” and “F....this S....”. While all this was going on, the climate change poster child, 16 year old Greta Thurnberg, was being worshiped by Congress, the UN and even former President Obama.

Greta is Swedish, the same country where one of her countrymen/scientist recently promoted the idea of eating human flesh to fight climate change, greenhouse emissions and to encourage energy sustainability. No doubt that explains the “Don't Eat Cows, Eat the Rich” chant.

As far as “Free the Nipple”, this is an effort occurring in several states, to include Denver, Colorado, where the city fathers agreed to allow all females, ages 10 years and up to wear nothing above their waste. Jeffrey Epstein would have loved this.

In New York City and elsewhere, children were excused from school to partake in climate change protests. On Monday, hundreds of leftists protestors blocked roadways causing countless motor vehicles to sit there emitting carbon emissions. Parents, workers and college students were urged to skip work and school and were joined by Black Lives Matters. Prior to the day of protest, Antifa held training workshops instructing participants on direct action.

More parents are asking for help from therapists because their children are fearing “environmental doom - we're all going to die,” due to climate alarmists intentionally amping up the rhetoric over a looming environmental apocalypse within the next 10 years.

Since the late 1960's, the left has been pushing this global power grab. First it was global cooling, but all those predictions did not materialize. It next was changed to global warming, but that also did not come to fruition. Now it is just called climate change or disruption. Some of us just call it “Weather”.

In 1967, Stanford University Biologist Paul Ehrlich predicted dire famine by 1975, citing that the population of the U.S. is already too big and that birth control may have to be accomplished by making it voluntarily by putting sterilizing agents into staple foods and drinking water.

By 1970, Ehrlich said he had seen no action taken to save the environment “and it does need saving” he said, and went further predicting that the oceans will be as dead as Lake Erie in less than a decade.

I researched this further and yes, the Great Lakes water levels were very low around that time, however in 2019 it is reported that all of the Great Lakes have record high water levels.

Other headlines of the 1970's to 2017 read:

July 1971- A NASA Scientist claimed that in the next 50 years that due to fossil fuels, temperatures will drop by 6 degrees and could trigger an ice age.

April 1970, Scientist James P. Lodge predicted an Ice Age by the 21st Century.

1974 – “Space Satellites Show New

Ice Age Coming Fast.”

June 1988 – “More Droughts Likely, expert tells Senators” - But, the last really dry year in the mid west was 1988, and recent years have been record wet.

This and more is available in a September 18, 2019 article: “Wrong Again: 50 Years of Failed Eco-Pocalyptic Predictions”, but let's fast forward to the 21st century for some eye opening reveals.

On February 3, 2017, people were shocked when United Nations official, Christina Figueres, admitted that the global warming conspiracy set by the U.N.'s Framework Convention on Climate Change, of which she is executive secretary, has a goal of environmental activists to not save the world from ecological calamity, but to destroy capitalism.

In 2019, Chakrabarti, Chief of Staff of Alexandria Ocascio Cortez, said that the New Green Deal was “not about a climate thing – saving the planet at all. It was about how you change the entire economy thing.”

A recent magazine writer said, “It is time to panic about global warming – indeed a proper state of panic is long overdue. More and more see it as an impending climate apocalypse.”

Bernie Sanders wants to ban meat. Kamala Harris wants government to regulate your diet. Other Presidential candidates go after your eating of cheeseburgers, but hypocrisy is alive and well among these leftists candidates who during climate crisis weekend, helped cook 10,500 steaks at the annual Democrat Polk County Iowa Steak Fry.

And my favorite photo of the Climate Crisis Week was; a young teenage girl in New York standing next to an overflowing trash bin sitting on a trash strewn sidewalk, holding a sign that read: “F....Each Other Not the Planet.” Not only were fires set during the protests, but the streets and sidewalks in New York City and Washington D.C., were strewn with trash and garbage.

Children are being used. The left's crisis rhetoric does not work well on adults, but it works great on kids and they are being robbed of their childhood. They are terrified that the earth will be gone in 10 years.

Kamala Harris wants to ban plastic straws, but none of the progressive/socialist Democrats seem to be worried about the influx of plastic syringes that are lining the streets and sidewalks of Democrat controlled cities, nor the fecal matter that flows into the Pacific Ocean or the American River in Sacramento.

AOC worries that when the glaciers melt medieval diseases will be released into the atmosphere. Well I am here to tell her that she does not have to wait until the glaciers melt. Los Angeles already has reports of typhus and leprosy. The plague could be next due to an over population of rats. Hey Ehrlich, where was that prediction?

It's time for all of us to be actively involved and shouting from the roof tops. The left, whatever you call them, socialists, activists, Democrats, have been the catalyst for the biggest scam ever perpetrated on humankind.
