Patriotic Review 4 July 2021

My Fellow Patriots,

As we celebrate our country’s independence I reflect that only one third of the population of the colonies supported the effort to free this country from tyranny. Only eight percent of the population actively took part in the war for independence. In light of recent events across the country and here in Washoe County, I can certainly understand why one could become disheartened and discouraged. I would like to remind us all that this is not a Sunday drive, this is a cross country trip. There will be many setbacks along the way, yet, as in any war, you may lose battles on the way to winning the war. Stay the course my fellow Patriots. We will prevail. The powers that would destroy this country do not comprehend the will of true Americans. We will never surrender to the Socialist left.

If you are looking for opportunities for involvement there are plenty of venues around. Please scroll down to see where you might find a fit. I would also suggest we encourage family and friends to become involved. As Edmund Burke said, “All that is required for evil to triumph is that good men do nothing”.

Of interest this week is the Gaming Control Board Commission (GCBC). They will be meeting to discuss what amounts to vaccination passports for anyone involved in the gaming industry. This will include every person who works at a casino at any capacity. As we all know, the “Fauci Ouchy” is an experimental inoculation. Requiring, mandating, coercing, enticing or any other form of encouragement to participate in this experiment is against all principles upon which this country was founded. Since March of 2020 we have seen our liberties come under direct attack by those people having sworn an oath to defend our liberties. Stand with other Patriots in Carson City this Wednesday to protest this action by the GCBC. For those who wish to carpool or caravan, we will meet at the Apple parking lot at the Summit Sierra Mall by 7:30am, departing by 7:45 am. Know that there is a simultaneous protest occurring in Las Vegas.

Tuesday 6 July: 9AM Washoe County School Board Special Meeting
Fri, Sat, Sun 9-10-11 8AM- 3PM Hidden Treasures Rummage Sale hosted by the Mount Rose Republican Women (MRRW)

Patriotic Review 22 June 2021

Hello Fellow Patriots,

Once again the WCSD Board Chair has underestimated we patriots. She has moved General Public Comment from the beginning of the meeting to the end of the meeting. I suspect the reason for this action is not simply because General Public Comment lasted over 5 hours on June 8th, but also because she does not care what the citizens of Washoe County think. Please see John Eppolito’s letter protesting the WCSD for more information.

I am saddened that the law suit to be brought against WCSD by Joey Gilbert will not be moving forward. For more information read Paul White’s update letter . Also for further reading is Joey Gilbert’s Op Ed letter in the Reno Gazette-Journal regarding taking back the schools.

I hope you all understand that there is a push across the county to indoctrinate our children in the public schools. This is not unique to Washoe County or Nevada. This is happening all over the country. There are some states banning the teaching of Critical Race Theory, (founded in Marxist ideology) in their schools. If we are going to ensure that our children are not brainwashed into this divisive, racist and hateful instruction, it will be up to us to secure their futures.

Perhaps we can take our schools back from within. There are multiple opportunities available. WCSBoard Districts C and D applications are due June 25, and July 9th, respectively. The WCSBoard has openings for the public on various Committees. What if we could get conservatives to fill these positions? Some positions are for students, some WCSD retirees, some juvenile or Law Enforcement, some for community members, some for parents. Some committees meet monthly, others 3 or 4 times a year. The link for the openings will be posted below.

The Washoe County Board of Commissioners is meeting Tuesday. Suggested topics on which to speak are: 1. End the “Public Health Emergency” 2. Ban vaccine passports/verifications. 3. Give a full accounting of how federal COVID monies were received and spent. Remember, these people work for us.

A new “in person” Constitution Class is forming. It will be taught by Dick Westrup beginning in July at Sheels in the meeting rooms (which are upstairs by the guns). More information will be available as soon as more details are worked out.

Karen England has some very wise words of advise; we are in a marathon of a war people, not a sprint. Pace yourselves.

Tuesday 22 June 2021: 10AM WCCommissioner Meeting
Tuesday 22 June 2021: 2PM WCSBoard Trustee Meeting
Wednesday 23 June 2021: 11:30PM Conservative Talk Lunch

Patriotic Review 7 June 2021

Hello Fellow Patriots,

I’d like to start off with the Washoe County School bard Meeting coming up tomorrow at 2pm. The Board has yet to respond to requests for proper accommodation for the people who will be in attendance. They refuse to meet in a location that will allow all of the members of the public to be inside out of the hot sun. Therefore, I suggest you bring a chair, umbrella for shade, food, snacks, drinks……and let’s not forget our MASKS!!! They are mandating masks to be inside!!! It is my belief that the Board President continues to mistreat the public because she is under the mistaken impression that we will go away. She knows not who she deals with. We are Americans. We are Patriots. We will not be pushed around by a bully.

The WCSD Superintendent wants to create a “task force” comprised of her choosing to override public opinion on the Benchmark Social Justice curriculum. See the article here: I have some questions: What were the results of the public survey taken regarding this curriculum? Did the public survey not support the WCSD narrative of indoctrinating children? WE WANT THE RESULTS OF THE PUBLIC SURVEY made PUBLIC. (Rumor is that over 90% of the people who took the survey were against the curriculum.)

Email ALL of the Trustees and the Superintendent. Call. Attend the meeting Tuesday, June 8th, 2pm at 425 East 9th Street or give Public Opinion at (Note: if you send in a public opinion email you cannot testify at the meeting.)
Superintendent Kristen McNeill
District A: Trustee Jeffrey Church
District B: Trustee Ellen Minetto
District C: Trustee Andrew Caudill
District D: Trustee Kurt Thigpen
District E: Trustee Angela Taylor
At-Large District F: Trustee Jacqueline Calvert
At-Large District G: Trustee Diane Nicolet

We intercepted a message that supporters of this curriculum intend to show up wearing the color green as a counter protest. We are therefore encouraging everybody to show up wearing green, only make sure you have a sign with you expressing how you feel about this curriculum so that any media will not be able to twist the narrative that “everybody wearing green” supports this curriculum (see the flyer of the opposition below, it is GREEN).

Upcoming Events:
Tuesday June 8th 10am. Washoe County Commissioners Meeting
Wednesday June 9th. Conservative Talk Lunch
Saturday June 19. Patriot Street Fighter. 11:30 – 3:30

Best Regards,

Patriotic Review 24 May 21

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:

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.

Best regards,

Patriotic Review ACTION EDITION 20 May 21

Patriotic Review ACTION EDITION 20 May 21

Fellow Patriots,
There are three, urgent, actionable items needing your attention:

First, the Washoe County School Board of Trustees has removed the Benchmark Social Justice Curriculum from the agenda again.  That being said, we believe they are gambling that AB261 will pass (see below). Needless to say, we have their attention! The protest, rally, gathering will continue as planned on May 25th starting at about 1:30pm.  Bring signs, 3 minute speeches, enthusiasm and weather appropriate gear (sun, snow, rain….who knows?). This is going to take all of us to keep this curriculum out of our schools. If you cannot attend, please email:

Central Administration Building, Board Room
425 East Ninth Street
Reno, NV

Second is the AB261 bill that we must do our best to stop.  This bill mandates CRT in all of the Nevada schools.  Write ALL of the senators and also write your opinion on the NELIS site.

Record your opinion:
(be sure to scroll down to the “BILL VERSION and select 4/14/21)Here is the bill:

For the emails of all of the Senators see the bottom of this email.

This from Nevada Family Alliance

AB 261 is another bill declaring the Legislature’s “woke” agenda to the whole nation. This bill will  mandate all school districts to adopt curriculum grounded in critical race theory (CRT) and learn about LGBTQ activists throughout our nation’s history. The bill also gives the school districts the prerogative to include “any other group of persons [they deem] appropriate” to teach the students. 
We know that school districts, like Washoe County School District (WCSD), have already shown that they approve of teacher-led indoctrination and activism in the classroom. This bill would force other schools to follow in the footsteps of WCSD and continue on their mission to turn every student in Nevada into an activist fighting for causes they don’t understand.
This bill has been placed on the General File to be heard and voted on at ANY TIME during the  Senate session.
Nevada school board members and legislators need to be reminded of the power of parents. These are OUR schools and OUR children. We will not stand for tax-payer funded indoctrination in OUR state.  

Third is SB452 a bill which will negate CCW permits that Nicole Cannizaro has used a false emergency to deviously get SB452 into the legislature.  It is basically EVERYTHING that was gutted from AB 286 including “no guns in any covered premises” and has now been regurgitated into SB452.  Two weeks left and this is what they pull.  We must opine FAST. If Nevadans did NOT want this in AB286, they most certainly do NOT want the same thing in SB452.  If you would, we are still dealing with AB286, making criminals out of hobbyists (the ghost gun bill). We must speak up in great numbers!

This from the NRA:

Senate Majority Leader Nicole Cannizzaro (D-6) used an emergency measure to revive the gun free zone expansion language that was amended out of Assembly Bill 286 earlier this session as a new bill: Senate Bill 452. With less than two weeks remaining in the 2021 legislative session, expect this bill to move quickly. Start contacting your senator today and urge their opposition to SB 452! Senate Bill 452, sponsored by Nicole Cannizzaro (D-6), prohibits law-abiding citizens from being able to defend themselves at certain gaming-connected businesses, such as hotels and shopping malls, if the owners decide to declare it a gun-free zone. This restriction extends to the property line, meaning the firearm prohibition includes open areas like parking lots, with limited exceptions. The bill contains no requirements for gun-free businesses to provide any security measures to guarantee the safety of disarmed patrons, such as security guards or metal detectors, to prevent armed criminals from ignoring the arbitrary boundaries and entering.

Additionally, Assembly Bill 286, legislation to criminalize home built firearms, is eligible for a final vote on the Senate floor as soon as today! Contact your senator today and urge their opposition to AB 286! Assembly Bill 286, sponsored by Assembly Member Sandra Jauregui (D-41), essentially bans home-built firearms for personal use by imposing requirements that far exceed those in federal law. It prohibits private individuals from possessing certain unregulated components commonly used by hobbyists to make their own firearms. This confiscatory bill also bans possession of existing, legal, firearms without serial numbers, such as home-built firearms, but it does exempt pre-1969 firearms. This exemption covers firearms made before federal law required licensed manufacturers and importers to place serial numbers on their commercially produced or imported firearms.

Record your opinion here:

Here is the bill:

People, let’s stand up, show up and speak up!
