My fellow Patriots,
Here we are in the dog days of summer and things are heating up all over and I don’t mean the weather. I very much appreciate all the folks that turned out to protest Drag Queen Story Hour at our libraries. As expected, there were several incidents that necessitated the filing of police reports. The rainbow thieves are the instigators of these incidents and the Library Director always sides with them. He even trespassed an individual that was merely filming at the event because he insisted the individual was “inciting” people. Unfortunately, these incidents are only going to escalate, and the County is going to have to pay out huge sums when they get sued. It could all be avoided by simply removing this event from our libraries. I have talked with several of our elected representatives and asked that this event is no longer held in our libraries, but I do not hold out any hope that they will act accordingly. This is a struggle that will take an ongoing presence of Patriots at the Library Board of Trustee meetings and at the County Commissioner meetings. In response to the reading of books to children by adult entertainers, LeRue Press in conjunction with Wake Up Washoe County, is having a storytime for children featuring books by Kirk Cameron (see below). It is my hope that we fill the room to capacity so the Library Director can see just how popular wholesome stories read by normal citizens can be. What an opportunity to counter the rainbow thieves! I hope to see you there.
The Spanish Springs Citizens Advisory Board meeting will prove to be informative if not downright entertaining as there will be a presentation on the Lands Bill. This will impact many of us and I know there are many passionate views on both sides of the issue. I encourage you to research this issue and bring your opinion to the CAB meeting.
There is also a call for adults to read books and evaluate them as to their suitability in both our school and county libraries (see below).

The children of Washoe County are in need of adults to step up for them and read books which must be removed from our school libraries due to the explicit content. There are over 150 books to be read, evaluated, and documented before they can be submitted with a request for removal. If 75 of us each read two books the task would quickly be completed. Will you consider reading a book or two this summer for the children of Washoe County?
Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer. Please include your preference for reading elementary or secondary school level books.

Juanita Elaine Cox passed away peacefully on the morning of July 15, 2023, after suffering from cancer. Juanita was born on February 18, 1948, in Santa Monica, California, the first daughter of John and Vernetta Sopher. The family moved to Reno, Nevada shortly after Juanita was born where she attended local schools and graduated from Wooster High School in 1966. Juanita worked for the City of Sparks from 1966 through 1976 as a systems analyst. Juanita was very active in the dog breeding and show community, where she bred collies, shelties, and salukis. In the 1980s, she became active against nuclear testing in Nevada as well as rallying against dumping nuclear waste at Yucca Mountain. Later, her activism turned towards social justice and constitutional rights protections. Juanita was an activist for 50+ years, a registered (unpaid) lobbyist for 30 years, researcher for several published books, participant in a local public access television show, a paralegal, and parliamentarian.
Juanita is preceded in death by her father John, mother Vernetta, brother-in-law James Lusk, and husband of 40 years, David Cox. She is survived by stepsons Greg Cox (Susan), Joe Cox, stepdaughter Deni Cox (Kevin), and daughter Lisa (Scott), eight grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren, sisters Kathy Whalen (Bill) and Rosie Lusk, numerous nieces and nephews, and a large extended family. She will be missed by many.
The family will be holding a private memorial and Juanita’s friends will be holding a larger celebration of life at the American Legion, 730 4th St, Sparks on Saturday, August 5, 2023 at noon. Given Juanita’s passion for causes, in lieu of flowers, please donate to a cause that you are passionate about in her honor.

My fellow Patriots,
Happy Independence Day! As we celebrate possibly the most historic event in our country’s past, I would encourage each of you to reflect on what July 4th really means. Of course, it is a time for hot dogs on the grill, picnics along the river, gatherings of friends and family, and fireworks at night but it is SOOOO much more. The signers of the Declaration of Independence pledged their “lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor” (the last line from the document) in support of what they had signed. Many of them lost everything in the ensuing struggle to become free of a tyrannical government. Some had their entire family killed. Many lost their fortunes and their lives. However, not a single one of them betrayed their commitment to what they signed. They all retained their sacred honor.
When I see what is happening in our country and right here in our county, I am reminded of how these men must have felt. They recognized that their government had gotten out of control and had increasingly infringed on their God given rights. As many of you have heard me say, I believe we are in a war for the very existence of this great country. The leftists with their socialist agenda, would love to turn America into another failed attempt to establish their idea of utopia. To that I say, NOT ON MY WATCH! Our battle is not with our government but with those people within the government and outside the government that seek to change our country into something our Founding Fathers decried in the Declaration of Independence, a society controlled by the state. King George believed he was ordained to be the king and the British subjects (including the colonists) were duty bound to obey his every whim. Sound familiar? Socialism always requires a dictatorship.
As we celebrate Independence Day, I ask that you talk amongst your friends and family about the significance of what we are celebrating. I hope you all will renew your commitment to get involved in any way you are able, to turn Washoe County red and take back our county, our state, and our country. The signers of the Declaration of Independence committed everything. Ask yourself, what am I committed to?

The Legislature officially ends tomorrow, however, there is still much to be done. We need to encourage our Republican Senators to uphold the Governor’s vetoes and we need to encourage the Governor to veto the bad bills that will be flooding his desk.
The following link lists the bills that we know of right now that Republican Senators must uphold the Governor’s veto.
These are the bills thus far that we need to encourage the Governor to veto:
AB242 – Requires electronic voting machines and prohibits paper ballots
AB220 – Violates property rights and caps residential water use
AB175 – Adds Democrat appointees to School Boards
SB302 – Makes Nevada a sanctuary state for doctors who do transgender surgeries (including on minors)
SB172 – Would allow STD treatment for minor children without parental permission
SB239 – Assisted Suicide
SB443 – Reduces Voter ID requirements
AB262 – Allows non-citizens to serve on elected town boards

We can expect a last ditch effort on the part of the Democrats to push through as much of the “woke” garbage that they can possibly get in before the end of the session. The Governor kept his promise and vetoed the budget since the Democrats refused to even introduce any of his legislation. Of course, they claim that this will “shut down Nevada” and that “all support for children, elderly, veterans, etc., will be cut off”, none of which is true.
It is imperative that our Republican Senators continue to stand their ground and uphold the Governor’s vetoes. They hold a minority in the Nevada Senate, yet if they continue to stand together as Republicans and vote together, they have enough votes to uphold the Governor’s vetoes and the vetoes will stand. I would not want to be that one Republican Senator that turns traitor and votes with the Democrats to overturn a veto. I can think of no quicker way to commit political suicide. There are people taking bets on which Republican Senator will turn and betray the party. As the Republican symbol is an elephant, and elephants have long memories, so do Nevada Republican. Ask any of the Republicans that were in office in 2015 when Republicans voted in the largest tax increase in the history of Nevada. We have been fighting to regain control of the Nevada Legislature ever since as the majority ended their political careers with that decision. Will you email the Nevada Republican Senators a note of encouragement as they have been voting together to uphold the Governor’s vetoes and request they continue to do so?

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT RESTORATIVE DISCIPLINE
It’s Making Our Schools MORE Dangerous
Meanwhile, WCSD’S School Board-minus-one Continues to Praise it. Several times in the past few weeks WCSD School Board members Westlake, Rodriguez, and Mayberry spoke publicly in support of Restorative Discipline (RD) and what they wrongly believe it to be. The Board members’ presentations proved once again that they know less-than nothing about what’s wrong with our schools. They have NO idea how to fix them, and NO interest in learning more or changing their ways.
Meanwhile, the futures of WCSD’s 60,000 students continue to be held hostage to the Board’s ignorance and arrogance.
• The Board didn’t mention (because they don’t know) that there is not ONE public school in America that claims to have EVER stopped violent student behavior solely with RD.
Never has been. Never will be.
That’s because Restorative Discipline is NOT really discipline.
It is simply flavor-of-the-month education jargon for typical counseling procedures.
Restorative Discipline counseling takes place AFTER damage to others has already been done.
RD counselors and staff meet with student offenders to encourage FUTURE lawful, compassionate behavior that will hopefully PREVENT additional anti-social incidents.
That’s well and good, BUT …
The national, years-long record of Restorative Discipline proves that counseling alone does NOTHING – absolutely NOTHING — to STOP the violent/gang/drug/abusive incidents that daily endanger students and staff at our schools.
Stopping serious student misbehavior can ONLY be accomplished by school staff physically and immediately intervening, as allowed by Nevada law.
Getting schools under control requires staff who won’t allow ANY disruptive student behavior to go unchallenged. You MUST have principals who will lead by example: personally breaking-up fights, removing disruptive students from class, confiscating drugs and weapons, and suspending and/or arresting perpetrators.
NOT UNTIL consistent, physical confrontation of bad student behavior is a daily practice, will ANY school have peace and safety.
Every student in a school must be convinced that misbehavior will be met with swift, certain consequences, and Restorative Discipline does NOT do that.
Until RD is removed from Washoe County schools and replaced with traditional discipline, student behavior will worsen, just like it has done for many years at numerous schools nation-wide.
Restorative Discipline counseling – or ANY kind of behavioral counseling works ONLY when counseled students are convinced that improving their own behavior is a better choice than receiving the harsher consequences waiting for them if they DON’T.
WCSD’s students continue to exhibit more – and more dangerous – misbehavior for one reason. They know that if they just repeatedly tell the Restorative Discipline counseling group that they “promise to do better next time,” then the ONLY consequence waiting for them is a Coke and a bag of popcorn in the principals’ or counselors’ offices. This truth of this claim has been validated by staff at numerous WCSD schools.
The School Board’s arrogance and ignorance regarding Restorative Discipline is doing irreparable damage to our entire county. The Board continues to publicly PRAISE RD, even as the drug/violence/teacher abuse issues it causes continue.
If the entire Board has not heard from you about this situation … they need to.

Amid multiple lawsuits that WCSD is currently embroiled in, there exist the REAL fears of on campus violence / drug use ~ the R O T of SEL ~ gender curriculum ~ Marxist CRT ~ restorative justice practices ~ and intensely invasive data harvesting. Let’s quickly get our kids into SMALLER, SAFER schools that focus on discipline and traditional academics!
So many parents are speaking out. They are afraid to bring their kiddos to WCSD schools in northern Nevada. Are the WCSD administrators and Board of Trustees doing anything to stop it ?
