SPECIAL EDITION 2 Aug 2021

SPECIAL EDITION 2 Aug 2021

My Fellow Patriots,

This is the Commissioner meeting in which to speak out. On the agenda (*see below) of this Special Meeting is whether to enforce, or not, the mask mandate passed down from the occupier of the Governor’s Mansion. Businesses need us; the Washoe County Commissioners need to hear from us. The WCCommisioner Chair has not allowed this item to be placed on the agenda for months, even at the request of one of the Commissioners. We are at a crossroads. We either show up in numbers or get in line to eventually be masked and vaxed. This is the road in which we are now travelling. As you well know, I do not put out Special Editions of the Patriotic Review without cause. I know that you likely are inundated with “calls to action” on a frequent basis with respect to what is happening in our community and our country. I do not send this lightly. We need to let our representatives that this cannot stand.

Signs and speaking to the Commissioners are welcome. Angry diatribes have not, are not, and will not have any effectiveness. Calm, logical, peaceful, intelligent communication is the goal. Please keep in mind, they are our representatives. They work for us. They are not our enemies. If you cannot attend, please email the Commissioners (see below).

*”5. Discussion and decision on Washoe County’s position regarding the Governor’s COVID-19 Emergency Declaration Directive 047 of July 27, 2021, requiring facemasks be worn indoors in the State of Nevada. Possible actions include but are not limited to taking a position by the county on its intent to enforce or not enforce the mask mandate against businesses and the general public. Manager’s Office. (All Commission Districts.) FOR POSSIBLE ACTION”

The issue is not about health, it is about freedom and the right to choose for ourselves.

Stand up, speak up, or submit. You decide. I’ll be there and I hope to see you there as well.

Patriotic Review 24 May 21

Hello Fellow Patriots,

The legislative session is fast coming to an end and we can expect an effort to pass a great many bills in a very short period of time. Most of these bills will be bad for Nevada. As you are probably aware there are some sneaky, underhanded political maneuverings taking place. For example, the bad bill, AB286 that was amended to remove all of the language about “no guns allowed” was regurgitated in the form of SB452. This was introduced by Nicole Cannizzaro under a faux “emergency”. I guess there is no level as to how low they will stoop to push their agenda through.

Speaking of low, our school board will be meeting on May 25. The major item they will be discussing is the horrid SHARE (sex ed) curriculum. This was written largely by Planned Parenthood. You don’t suppose they would have an agenda, do you? The board was supposed to be discussing their equally horrid Social Justice Curriculum. Thanks to the outcry from patriots they postponed it (again) to the June 8th agenda. I suspect this action was under the mistaken impression that we would not show up on the May 25. They couldn’t be more mistaken. We will continue to show up at every school board meeting until the ALL of the trustees understand that we will not tolerate our school board working against educating our children to the standard we pay for and expect. Our kids deserve better and that will only happen if we stand up. If you cannot attend, please email your public comment to: publiccomments@washoeschools.net

In this edition you will also find an excerpt of Paul White’s Uncomfortable Truths Blog titled “Replacing Reno’s Homeless Shelter With A More Efficient Model”. This is Part II of this series.

Coming up on June 4th, James Taylor, President of the Heartland Institute, will be speaking. This is hosted by the Republican Women of Reno. He will be presenting the case for fighting back against the Tech Cartel and how to do it. See the flyer insert below for details.

Opportunities to get involved this week:
Tuesday May 25. Washoe County Board of Commissioners Meeting at 10AM
Tuesday May 25. Washoe County Board of Trustees Meeting (BIG RALLY PLANNED!) 2PM
Wednesday May 26. Conservative Talk Lunch 11:30am
Friday June 4th. James Tayor is speaking.

Patriotic Review 10 May 2021

Patriotic Review 10 May 2021

Hello Fellow Patriots,

Good News!  Our legislature is now restricted to contemplating only those bills that have been introduced.  That being said, a great deal of potential damage could be done to Nevada by some of the proposed legislation.  For example, AB286 is still out there.  This bill will make instant criminals out of hobbyist that have made a firearm using kits or by their own design (guns without serial numbers).  This is not about forensics as the science of ballistics has that covered.  There has been no strong argument regarding why Nevada should pass this bill.  Please write the Senate Judiciary Committee in opposition of this bill;  it is infringement of the Second Amendment.  See the Committee with their emails below.  The hearing is Tuesday at 1pm.  Also record your opinion on the website (one more time) at https://www.leg.state.nv.us/App/Opinions/81st2021/  ; be sure to scroll down to “Bill Version”  4/20/21 to  voice your opinion on this version of the bill.

I would also encourage you to write the legislators about the other bills pending that will devastate Nevada.  Resources for information besides the NELIS website are:  Nevada Family Alliance, Nevada Families for Freedom, Conservative Talk Lunch, and Battle Born Patriots.

Reno is opening their “CARES” campus to address the homelessness explosion in our community on May 17th.  At that time they will be doing “sweeps” along the Truckee River and telling the homeless people that this is no longer allowed.  This is once again a useless attempt to solve a problem that is easily fixable.  The City of Reno spent millions of dollars for this CARES Campus that I predict will be useless in six months. Additionally they are spending $400,000 per year for staffing on this campus.  The City of Reno refuses to accept their failures from the past as well as the failures of other cities that continually throw money down the drain while not enforcing existing laws.  The City of Reno would have you believe this is a new and novel idea while there are numerous examples across the country that clearly demonstrate that this plan does not work.  Why?  For insight into why this will not work you will find an excerpt of Paul White’s latest article (below) from his blog Inconvenient Truths.

Let’s talk about the communist indoctrination that the Washoe County School District wants for our kids.  The Washoe County School Board of Trustees does not understand or refuses to acknowledge that Social Justice, Critical Race Theory, BLM, politicial correctness, equity, Systemic Racism, white privilege and BICOP (black, indigenous, people of color) are all founded in Marxist ideology. Teaching these to our children is down right anti-American.  Nevada has the worst schools in the country academically and instead of addressing those critical problems, the school board would rather focus on indoctrinating our kids to become social justice warriors as opposed to productive members of our community.  The Trustee meeting is now mysteriously open once again to in person public this Tuesday at 2pm ONLY (see information below). It is time we hold our elected representatives accountable for the lack of quality education. Send your public comment to:   publiccomments@washoeschools.net , even better, attend in person.

Opportunities to get involved this week:
Monday May 10, AB286 write legislators and opine on the 4/20 version of the bill, possibly testify
Tuesday May 11, Washoe County Commissioner’s Meeting 10am
Tuesday May 11, Washoe County School District Board of Trustees.  Meeting 2pm (arrive early!!) SHARP!   Tuesday May 11 and May 25. Social Justice Curriculum Rally at 1:30 in from of the administration building on 425 Ninth Street (more details below with down-loadable flyer)
Wednesday May 12, Conservative Talk Lunch. 10:30 for food, 11:30 for the meeting (details below)

Patriotic Review 22 April 2021

Patriotic Review 22 April 2021

Hello Fellow Patriots,

I like to start these newsletters off with good news.  In that vein, Churchill County Commissioners have unanimously voted to fully open Churchill County!  By fully open, I mean there are zero “mask mandates”.  This makes 10 Nevada counties that are now free, we have 7 to go.

Our voices are being heard by our legislators although not to the degree we would like.  There have been several seriously bad bills that have been significantly amended before being passed by the Assembly. An example is AB286, which would have negated a CCW permit and ban the manufacture of fire arms by hobbyists.  It was amended to simply address those firearms lacking serial numbers, (aka. “ghost guns”). It passed the Assembly. If passed by the Senate, it would make instant felons of anyone in possession of a firearm without a serial number.  Without a National Registry of Serial numbers, which would be the first step towards confiscation, serial numbers are meaningful only to the manufacturers.  They are not a significant law enforcement tool.  This is clear over-reach and irrational reaction to a problem that does not exist.

Another whopper of a bill, AB376, is mis-titled, “Keep Nevada Working Act”.  It would more appropriately be named, “Welcome Illegals Into Nevada For Use As Cheap Labor As Our Welfare Costs Rise Exponentially Act”.  The focus of this bill was to make Nevada a Sanctuary State for illegals.  There are now three amendments; no vote was taken in the Assembly, it is still an expensively and bad bill for Nevada and was referred to the Committee of Ways and Means; stay tuned for updates. We are going to need to pressure our Senators to ensure these bills do not become law.

We are continuing to fight for the children of Washoe County by holding the Washoe County School District Board of Trustees accountable for the lack of education in our schools.   Nevada ranks last in the nation for education and yet our School Board wants to integrate a new curriculum entirely focused on “social justice” instead of the 3 Rs.  This curriculum is not education, it is indoctrination.  I encourage you to click here and view the curriculum.  I recommend, to narrow your focus and where to look within the curriculum, click here for a pdf of the Nevada Families for Freedom article and then give your comments in the public survey (scroll to the bottom of the curriculum link for the survey).  The survey is only open until Monday, 26 April 2021. We need to let them know, NOT IN OUR SCHOOLS.  After you take the survey, consider emailing the WCSD Trustees and express your opposition to this curriculum.  Keep in mind the whole, “social justice push” is part of Marxists/Socialist doctrine to subvert our American way of life.

You may want to join the lawsuit against Washoe County School District.  Instead of focusing on the 3 Rs and giving our students the education they need to succeed, the school board continues to spend time and money on anti-racism indoctrination.  They have now locked the public out of the meetings as well.  Are you a current/former WCSD employee, parent, or student with firsthand WCSD experiences regarding student learning, abusive behavior, or denial of rights? Are you willing to stand up publicly, tell the truth, and give our children and community a fighting chance at a better future? Contact Joey Gilbert at “The People’s Champ” foundation or call Joey Gilbert’s office at (775) 210-1501 and ask for Andrea.  Mr. Gilbert is donating his services. https://www.joeygilbert.com/openschools#3

How Do We Fix Our WCSD Schools?  

Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.” (John Adams – 2nd President of the United States)

How Do We Fix Our WCSD Schools?  Part VI of a 6-Part Series

Overview:
For over a decade, the Washoe County School District (and all Nevada public schools) have ranked last in the nation or almost-last in the nation in quality of education.  WCSD superintendents and school boards have primarily blamed our failing schools on a lack of funding. That is provably false because 10 states fund their public schools equal-to or LOWER-than Nevada, and all 10 of those states outperform our schools.  

Part VI:  BETTER LEADERSHIP

“Where there is no vision, the people perish…” (Proverbs 29)

There is NO hope for the future of Washoe County’s 104 public schools and 62,000 students until WCSD leadership changes from top to bottom, beginning with Superintendent Kristin McNeill and Board President Angela Taylor. There currently exists NO “vision” in this duo’s leadership regarding how to proceed in creating schools that provide accountable academic teaching, a safe, secure and moral school environment, and don’t mismanage and waste almost $1 Billion per year in annual funding.

SUPERINTENDENT KRISTIN MCNEILL
Superintendent McNeill was selected by the School Board as WCSD’s new superintendent approximately one year ago. McNeill’s appointment directly contradicted the recommendation of the professional search group hired by the Board, who didn’t even rate McNeill among the top 6 superintendent candidates in a very weak field of applicants.

Why did the Board’s professional search group NOT recommend Kristin McNeill to be the new superintendent?

Paul D. White was a career public educator – as a teacher, principal, and superintendent, in 7 different school districts. A  2-time Educator of the Year, and national speaker/author on school reform, White’s focus  is transforming low-performing, out-of-control schools into drug-free, non-violent, racially harmonious, and high-achieving campuses.  He welcomes feedback at:  white.pauld@gmail.com

Patriotic Review 22 April 2021

Patriotic Review 5 April 2021

Hello Fellow Patriots,

I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone that wrote a snail mail letter the Secretary of State regarding the investigation of the 122,000 incidents of voter fraud presented to her by the GOP.   The snail mail campaign was hugely successful.  I have it on good authority that she did indeed receive hundreds of letters, each of which had to be opened, and the letters are still trickling in.  A hand written letter still has impact and most importantly hand written mail has to be opened, unlike emails that can simply be deleted.  An interesting article published by 360 News Las Vegas  titled: “Cegavske’s Daily Calendar Shows She Failed To Supervise Joe Gloria”, click here.

I am now encouraging you to write a snail mail letter to each one of the Chairs of the legislative committees that are hearing bills and encourage them to do what is right for Nevada and listen to the people.  If they would only go to their own website and look at the numbers for and against each bill and vote accordingly.  To view the committees:  https://www.leg.state.nv.us/App/NELIS/REL/81st2021

Legislative committee chairs decide which bills may be heard by their committee.The Assembly Legislative Operations and Elections Committee has been particularly bothersome and Chair Brittney Miller refuses to hear the following bills on election reform:  AB134, AB263, AB328, AB297.  Why would she refuse to allow bills to be heard on election integrity? According to Assemblyman Glen Leavitt, Assembly Republicans have only received 41 hearings out of their 124 bills.  This equates to 33%.  Assembly Democrats are hearing 53% of their own bills with 98 of their 185 bills being heard.  A committee chair has a responsibility to ALL parties and it is time she correct this situation.  Brittney.Miller@asm.state.nv.us  or snail mail at:

Assemblywoman Brittney Miller

Carson City, NV 89701

The Washoe County Commissioners are having a Special Meeting to vote on implementing new China Virus restrictions.  These restrictions on our liberties cannot stand.  Email our County Commissioners,  show up at the 8:30AM meeting and have our voices heard.  If our county commissioners refuse to stand up to the tyrant that occupies the Governor’s mansion, they should at least be able to explain to us why.  There is no amount of COVID money that  Washoe County can receive that would make it worth crushing our rights.

I was just made aware that the Nevada Gaming Control Board (GCB) and Gaming Commission (GC) might be discriminating against minorities.   An excerpt from the Gaming Control Board letter of 14 Jan 2021 states “…… Nevada’s gaming industry as part of the state’s Frontline and Essential Workforce. To implement this portion of the Playbook most effectively, the Board is collecting information regarding the willingness of the industry’s workforce to receive vaccinations.” They most recently are now mandating that any business which includes gaming must require their “hospitality workers” receive the shot against the China Virus. If the business does not comply they will have their gaming license revoked (click here for the joint GCB and GC letter).  Mandatory inoculations are unconstitutional and the Gaming Control Board is over-reaching astronomically. We are entering some dark times people.  The public may email their opinion to the GCB and GC regarding this action here: publiccomment@gcb.nv.gov   Public comments will be read at 9AM, Tuesday, April 7th and at the end of the meeting Wednesday, April 8th. To view the meeting: https://gaming.nv.gov/index.aspx?page=358

There was tremendous support at the last Washoe County School District Board meeting.  Let’s keep the pressure up and let that board know that we will not sit idly by while they continue to squander our tax payer dollars and fail in their mission to education our children.  Take the Washoe County School District Strategic Plan and Budget Survey for the public and let them know what their priorities should be: click here.
Also, there is a new excerpt from Paul White’s series:  How Do We Fix Our WCSD Schools?  Part V:  BETTER DISCIPLINE and CONTROL of Student Behavior .

Battle Born Patriots (BBP) has been reading the legislative bills, deciphering, decoding and then translating them into a few sentences including major points for the legislators to review before a hearing or a vote. They are swamped with bills to read and need volunteer readers. Contact Barney barneyw6@yahoo.com (include Volunteer Bill Reader in the Subject line) if you can volunteer to review bills. It makes a huge difference to the legislators to have the digested bills available to them, at least that is the feedback BBP has been getting from them.

Synopsis of Opportunities:

  • Send snail mail to legislative chairs
  • Publicly comment: email the Nevada GCB and GC regarding their joint resolution on the shot
  • Keep the pressure on the Washoe County Commissioners and the Washoe County School Board
  • Take the WCSD public survey and let them know what you think
  • Read, translate, decipher and decode, then sub mitt a synopsis of the legislative bill
  • Record your opinion regarding bills   https://www.leg.state.nv.us/App/Opinions/81st2021/

Patriotic Review 22 April 2021

Patriotic Review 28 March 2021

Hello Fellow Patriots,

This week the Washoe County School Board will be voting to potentially crush the First Amendment Rights of both teachers and students. They will also be voting on giving the Superintendent the authority to determine what constitutes “political” speech.  I believe it’s time we give the school Board a civics lesson, which, by the way, is something no longer taught in the WCSD. We need to make sure they understand, they represent the people.  We are not concerned with what their opinion is about anything.  We want them to vote according to the wishes of the people that elected them.  Why is it that when politicians achieve office they seem to think we are no longer capable of deciding for ourselves what is good for us? I cannot fathom the unmitigated gall required to believe  because you hold office the people you represent are now your subjects.  I, for one, am tired of seeing this attitude displayed by politicians that refuse to comprehend the principles on which this country was founded.  When we elect  a person to represent us, we have every reason to demand that they do exactly that, represent us.  We do not relinquish our sovereignty to any politician. We are citizens, not subjects.

This Tuesday, March 30th,  is the meeting of the Washoe County School Board of Trustees at 4pm, Damonte Ranch High School (Theater) 10500 Rio Wrangle Parkway, Reno. The Board will be served a Cease and Desist Order signed by the residents of Washoe County, to hopefully prevent what they are trying to do. Please attend if at all possible; show up early to sign the petition.  The full Cease and Desist Order, drafted by the attorney Joey Gilbert, will be read to the Board during the Public Comment at 3 minute intervals. To sign the online petition click here.  The purpose of the petition is to demonstrate to the Board that the people of Washoe County of having their voices ignored. To read the letter from Paul White containing a more in depth explanation click here.  To download your own copy of the petition click here.  Paul White is also the author of the column “Uncomfortable Truths”.   Below you will find an excerpt of this latest in the series titled, “How Do We Fix Our WCSD Schools?”

Bills, bills and more bills.  There is a selection of bills below for you to view, comment and then contact the legislators.  Two video links have been included to assist with navigating NELIS (Nevada Electronic Legislative Information System).

How Do We Fix Our WCSD Schools?
by Paul D. White
Overview:
For over a decade, the Washoe County School District (and all Nevada public schools) have ranked last in the nation or almost-last in the nation in quality of education.  WCSD superintendents and school boards have primarily blamed our failing schools on a lack of funding. That is probably false because 10 states fund their public schools equal-to or LOWER-than Nevada, and all 10 of those states outperform our schools. 
But if the solution for improving our schools is NOT more money, then what is it? Our failing schools result from 6 main issues that need to be dealt with. Each issue will be explained in more detail in this column and in the three succeeding ones.Part IV:  MORE ACCOUNTABILITY regarding WHAT is taught and HOW
HOW Subject Matter is Taught Matters
WhatEVER our WCSD schools are teaching, it’s clearly not being done in a way that ensures the students’ mastery of curriculum skills. This has much to do with how future teachers are being taught how to teach. Education programs at universities like UNR have devolved into saturating future teachers with Leftist ideologies, rather than instructing them in how to clearly and accountably present learning objectives in a way that results in students mastering those objectives. Additionally, as WCSD school discipline has become weaker, teachers have to deal with more in-class student drug use and disrespectful behavior, which destroy the orderly classroom environment that’s required for any real learning to take place.  To continue reading click here.  The entire series can be found at NevadaPatriot.net.

SB10 to Raise Property Taxes  Currently in Nevada law there is a formula for increasing property taxes for Single Family Homes and residential property with a 3% annual cap and for commercial property with an 8% annual cap. Currently, this means that the increase will be calculated between zero percent increase and 3% for single family homes and residential property between 3% or 8% for commercial property. This bill means that property taxes will be figured not between zero and 3% or zero and 8% annually but figured at the caps of 3% or 3% to 8%. This will result in increased property taxes for single family homes, residential property (rentals) and commercial property. Can you afford to pay more property taxes?

AB255 is an overt attempt to take power away from the people and place it in the hands of the government.  This bill would force Washoe County School Board Trustees to be semi-elected, semi-appointed, with 4 elected and 3 appointed, (currently all are elected in Washoe County). This is the camel’s nose under the tent…pretty soon it will be the camel’s whole body. This currently the way it is in Clark County, as existing law draws the line in the sand at 75,000 students. This would make counties with a minimum of 25K students enrolled have to fall in line with the semi-appointed rule.

Assembly Committee on Legislative Operations & Elections   Basically, this bill repeals the bad effects of AB4, passed in the Special Session of 2020, bringing us ballot harvesting, all-mail ins, etc. Now more than ever we need to have AB 134 heard in committee. This bill proposed by Assemblyman Matthews, Dickman, Hafen, Wheeler, Titus, and Senator Buck is a clean repeal of the provisions of AB 4. Mail voting is already banned in numerous countries, we cannot allow Democrats to declare an “emergency” every election in order to prompt the provisions of AB4.
