Memorial Day: To Those who Gave the Last Full Measure of Devotion

We in the Redlands Tea Party Patriots cannot improve on how Hillsdale College expressed it or their video tribute:

“On this Memorial Day weekend, our thoughts and prayers are with all of those who are grieving. May we, as Abraham Lincoln said, ‘highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.’”

Stump for Trump was a YUUGE success!!! [see the pics]

Supporters of Donald Trump who want to #MakeAmericaGreatAgain filled Mill Creek Cattle Co. on May 24.  Great speakers including Paul Chabot and Tim Donnelly inspired the already enthusiastic crowd.

Thank you to Don and Ruth Nydam, Trau and Nancy Karr and their team for organizing the event.  They were not previously involved in the cause to save America.  Like millions of other Americans, Donald Trump brought them off the proverbial couch. 

As always, “The most important political office is that of the private citizen.” Justice Louis D. Brandeis

We need to run all the way to the finish line, not just for Donald Trump but also for “insurgent” Patriot candidates like Paul Chabot, Tim Donnelly and Donna Munoz.

Thank you to Redlands Tea Party Patriots media coordinator John Berry for getting media attention to this event and our cause.

Here is a Channel 7 report on Stump for Trump.

The RDF article has good pics; here are ours.

Rail to Redlands UPDATE

Rail to Redlands UPDATE published on 1 Comment on Rail to Redlands UPDATE
Thanks for this Bill. Actually the $11,000,000.00 E.I.R. does address the issue of traffic problems caused by the train. Their thinking is a little off as the issue was completely addressed by simply saying that when some one takes the train, it just took a car off the streets, so therefore how could it be creating congestion? When I read that, I laughed at the false logic driven by political doctrine that ALL cars are bad and ALL trains are good.

The traffic problems will be huge. They say that from the time the warning gates go down until they go up is only one minute. If you go to Pasadena or other train intersections, first the signals at nearby intersections change to stop traffic and the gates go down way in advance of the arriving train. The train passes and then the signals have to all synchronize back to regular rhythm. The gates open. You may lose another entire cycle of lights before you can eventually go. During high traffic times, the resulting wave of backed up traffic from one crossing will end up becoming between 6 to 9 minutes depending upon where the light cycle is when you first arrive at the intersection. 
This traffic delay creates a chain of other congestion at other intersections by continuing to produce large packs of cars over loading the traffic light timing all the way to the freeway. 
The distance from the 10 Freeway exit at Orange and the rail tracks is less than one block. The congestion will easily cause traffic to back up on the off ramp and up onto the freeway which is already poorly designed and a a great place to film a mad max movie of suicidal lane changing.
Gilbreath and Harrison are the two biggest promoters of the train from San Bernardino which is the most dangerous city with the highest crime rate in all of California. We need less connectivity with San Bernardino and certainly not more. There is no need to fundamentally change Redlands into a permanent ghetto.
It will be interesting when I am on the City Council after November election. I am going to have point out direct conflicting information from the E.I.R. which I have read every word. 

I went to this thing, attached is my take.

Mayor Foster has formed a Redlands Rail Project subcommittee. He has appointed Harrison and Gilbreath to head this up. Subsequent to this SanBag is organizing a focus group to promote the rail project. They are inviting “you to apply to participate as a member of a focus group to provide input, insights and feedback that will help shape the future of the brand for the new rail service”… You must be a willing to participate in brainstorming, have respect for others, be honest and a desire to see the project be inclusive and represent Redlands and San Bernardino… This all sounds like the Delphi method to make people think they had something to do with the rail project. Remember, $500,000 of your tax dollars has been allocated to this brainwashing.

This is scheduled for May 17th. If you want to apply go to will need to be brave as the libs will be out in force.

If you attend remember:
1. The train will cross intersections in the city over 550 time every day!
2. There has been no study done to mitigate the havoc these crossings will have on traffic flow and emergency response efforts. SanBag spent $11 million on the Environmental Impact Report and NEVER addressed this issue. Why?
3. SanBag says the train cost $250 million. This is not true. When the interest costs on the bonds of $98,000,000 + are included the project is coming in at $348,546,000. Why is this interest cost being hidden from the public?
4. SanBag estimates that the yearly operating costs will be $6-8 million. The fairbox revenues will never come close to matching either of these numbers. SanBag has not assigned a cost to ride the train from the UR to San Bernardino Transit center. No one knows how much this operation will need to be subsidized by the taxpayer every year yet it continues to roll on.
5. The cost to police the Redlands stations has never been addressed. Why?
6. The train will disrupt the common cohesion of the city further dividing it into the North and South sides. Why is this issue never addressed?
7. The council has never addressed the issue of high density housing along the rail line. Why?

I know that none of these issues will be broached at the focus group meeting. The moderators will want sweep all this under the rug. But if volunteer for the focus group keep in mind the above issues.

If you volunteer it will be an opportunity to see Classic Delphi at work.

I will NOT shop Albertson and Panera Bread until and unless this trashy area of signs are cleaned up.20160526_135022 20160526_135159

Having them on private property is fine with me but this whole corner must be against local ordinance! Redlands Buzz notified as well. NO respect for those of us who shop there. Looks like the violators (Ramos, Flynn, Kaiser) are not local Redlands residents (except for Pete Aguilar who should know better).

The First Tea Party Principles Speech Contest was a Great Success 

For those of you who missed it, we had five great performances and speeches from five amazing high school and college students.  The judges had a difficult task to rank the speeches, but in any contest, someone has to win.  Maybe there is hope for America’s future after all.

And the results are:
**1st.  Ashley Grace Woods ($2000)
**2nd.  Price T. Morgan ($1000)
**3rd.  Troy Obernolte ($500)
**4th.  Isabella Fortuna
**5th.  Wade Preciado

Videos of their speeches are below.

Thank you to:
**Speech coach Suzanne Strauss, who spent vast amounts of time helping our contestants be even better.
**Sponsors: Jay Obernolte, Marc Steinorth, Mike Morrell and Jan Leja.
**George Hawat from Gun Box Armory for donating a $530 shot gun to raffle to help raise money for the prizes.
**The Speech Contest organizing team: Julius Botelho, Maggie Brummett, Dave Castillo, Ron Gravette, Michael Mercier, Carolyn Hays and Greg Brittain.
**”You know who you are” for organizing the yard sale that raised money for the prizes.
**The contestants’ families for their support.

Tea Party Principles:
Personal freedom with constitutionally limited government.
Economic freedom with opportunity for all and favoritism for none.
A debt free future through fiscal responsibility today.

We believe the Tea Party principles were an essential part of making America great, free and prosperous and are essential to restoring and keeping America great, free and prosperous.  These principles are antithetical to the big government ruling class, which is why they attack the Tea Party movement so vigorously and viciously, but always without mentioning the Tea Party principles.


Here is a video of all of the speeches.  We will post videos of the individual speeches soon.


Take Action: Save the Supreme Court and our Constitution

Take Action: Save the Supreme Court and our Constitution published on

Take Action: Save the Supreme Court and our Constitution

If Obama is allowed to replace Justice Scalia and pack the Supreme Court with another liberal activist judge, there will be 5 vote majority on the Supreme Court to legislate the liberal agenda from the bench.  They will be soft on crime and terrorism, repeal the 2nd Amendment, restrict religious liberty, restrict freedom of speech, allow the EPA to trample property rights and the free enterprise system, and allow Dem presidents to rewrite and ignore our laws including immigration laws.  Five liberal activist justices would uphold Obama’s executive amnesty. 

How can the Supreme Court repeal the 2nd Amendment?  The four liberal justices have voted that the 2nd Amendment provides no right for Americans to own guns.  With a fifth liberal activist judge, they will so “interpret” the 2nd Amendment effectively repealing it. 

In addition, the current Supreme Court made up a Constitutional right to gay marriage.  What new Constitutional rights would five liberal justices make up?

Rep Senators are under heavy pressure to cave and approve Obama’s liberal, activist nominee.  The national Tea Party Patriots is trying to buck up Rep Senators, and we can help. 

1.    Go to this web page listing key Rep senators on the Judiciary Committee.  Call their offices and urge them to hold firm with No Hearings No Votes and/or click on their Twitter handles, and if you are logged into Twitter, a prewritten Tweet will appear doing the same.   In Tweets and Facebook posts, please use #NoHearingsNoVotes

2.   Even easier, please sign the petition and check the box giving permission to send your signature to your legislators.

3.  Download the toolkit with info and sample letters, posts and emails to the editor and senators at the above link and write, post and email away.

If you are a group leader, please encourage your members to take these steps to defend our Constitution.

Dems for Sean Flynn

Dems for Sean Flynn published on 2 Comments on Dems for Sean Flynn


Sean Flynn is running against Paul Chabot in Congressional District 31 as a “Rep.”

Please see the following list of Dems donating to Sean Flynn and in particular Barbara Schiffrin who donated 10s if not 100s of thousands of dollars to the Dems.

We confirmed the information is accurate with Paul Chabot and Sean Flynn. 

Sean Flynn also donated $8000.00 to Michigan Dem Congressman now Senator Gary Peters.

At the Redlands Republican Women Federated meeting on April 15, Sean Flynn said he opposes amnesty, but he favors legalizing illegal immigrants, letting them legally live and work in America, and then apply for citizenship after 10 years.  In my book, that’s amnesty.

The Redlands Tea Party Patriots cabinet recommends Paul Chabot.  By a supermajority vote, the San Bernardino County Republican Central Committee endorsed Paul Chabot. Paul’s many other endorsements include the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association.
