The Embers of Tyranny Light the Bonfires of Liberty
It is amazing when force gets turned upon itself and redirected towards the attacker. Such is the way of Aikido. Such is the way of CFR.
We now employ the genius of the esteemed members of Article III as they use the very vehicles that have brought liberty to the brinks of extinction. Yes, my inference is towards Baker v. Carr and Reynolds v. Sims. These travesties that tore the very fabric of Republic from the States are now being rallied to our aid. See, you cannot have it both ways. You cannot hold that a general grievance that affects both one and many has no standing when the very cases that pillaged liberty were based on these very principles. A general grievance that has been adjudicated in the past must be dealt in the same manner today.
For all the damage Baker and Reynolds wrought upon our construction of government, they are now wielded in the mighty pen strokes of our legal team. Via their recitations and prose, our attorneys have painted our learned Judge into a corner. That past has bound her to a single decision, a three-judge court. We are not “wholly insubstantial,” we are not “obviously frivolous,” and we are not “obviously without merit.” The defendant has never said we were not right, only that we all suffered the same plight and therefore had no rights.
Take heart my fellow Jeffersonian's. Providence has again smiled upon us and added brilliance at a most requisite time. If you dare to read the responses our learned fellows put forth, be sure to wear eye protection as you may find the light of truth blinding in its magnificence.
Three Judge Court Decision
The Judge has vacated the scheduled June 1st, court hearing; Citizens for Fair Representation (CFR) v Secretary of State Alex Padilla. This in no way means that the hearing has been canceled. Citizens for Fair Representation’s motion to convene a three-judge court is submitted without oral argument. The motion is submitted in briefs, including the reply brief, if any.
The Judge will weigh the motions of both CFR's and State Attorney's positions and is expected to make a decision. If the court determines that oral argument is needed, it will be scheduled at a later date. Please note: All Jefferson related activities are vacated as well.
JUNE 15, 2018: MOTION TO DISMISS
Friday, June 15th at 10:00 am, is the scheduled date for the Motion to Dismiss. This hearing date is for the Judge(s) to hear arguments by the State's attorney regarding the Secretary of State Alex Padilla filing a motion to dismiss on April 16th. As with the vacated June 1st date, any announcements regarding the decisions or scheduling will be posted as soon as possible, so be sure to stay tuned.
Date:Friday, June 15, 2018 Time: 10:00 am (arrive at 9:00 am) Location: Robert T. Matsui Courthouse, 501 I Street, Sacramento
DISCLAIMER: PLEASE BE FLEXIBLE, THIS INFORMATION IS AS ACCURATE AS OF THIS DATE AND LIKE THE WEATHER, DATES MAY CHANGE UNEXPECTEDLY without notice.

CITIZENS - Don't Sit This One Out
If you are tired of being ignored and tired of not given the opportunity to have a voice on such items as the gas tax and vehicle registration fee increases, and whether or not you want to live in a Sanctuary State, then you cannot sit back and not vote in the June 5th primary election.
It is time to be an informed voter and educate others. We must all recognize that it is Governor Brown's administration and state legislature who are the career politicians that have imposed new taxes and regulations, while also ignoring the laws under the Constitution that they took an oath to uphold.
Ask yourself: If California has the 5th richest economy in the world, how is it that we have the highest level of poverty, some of the highest homeless rates, worst roads, worst schools and diminishing business climate.
It is time for a change in Sacramento. We cannot allow this damaging free-will agenda to continue, leaving your children and grandchildren left to pay for the financial demise of the state, with its trillions of debt and unfunded liabilities. It is been said, that California is postured to take the lead in spreading socialism to every state in the union.
Tell everyone you know to mail in their absentee ballots now, or be sure to show up at the polls on June 5th. Your vote is necessary now, probably more than any time in our state & country's history.
THIS JUST IN...
We are pleased to report that earlier in the year CFR had added two highly qualified consultants to the legal team.
One consultant is Professor Stewart Jay from the University of Washington School of Law, where he has taught since 1980. Prior to that, Professor Jay clerked for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Warren E. Burger. Jay's expertise and research includes constitutional law and constitutional history.
The other consultant is Judge Alex Kozinski, a former Chief Magistrate of the United States Court of Appeals, 9th Circuit, serving for over 30 years. Prior to his appointment by President Ronald Reagan, Judge Kozinski was a law clerk for Judge Anthony Kennedy and for Chief Justice Warren Burger of the Supreme Court.
