Press Release:

Eagle Forum of California State President, Orlean Koehle, received word from Damon Conklin, aid to California State Senator Tom Harmon that Senator Harmon has already signed the Eagle Forum “Protect American Sovereignty” resolution, and will be urging other members of the Republican Senatorial Caucus to sign it as well.

The resolution was presented to Senator Harman and to all the California state legislators in individual packets by attendees and leaders of various grass-roots groups who were part of a two-hour “Protect American Sovereignty” Rally Monday, January 14, on the west steps of the Sacramento Capitol Building. The rally was organized and led by Eagle Forum of California.

The packets contained information about the Security and Prosperity Partnership, the NAFTA Superhighway, and the movement towards forming a North American Union, similar to the European Union, all being done under the wire by the executive branches of the United States, Canada, and Mexico with no U.S. congressional oversight or oversight by the parliaments of Canada or Mexico.

After giving information about all of the above, the resolution states “…the Legislature of the state of California urges the United States Congress and California’s Congressional Delegation to use all of their efforts, energies, and diligence to withdraw the United States from any further participation in the Security and Prosperity Partnership…and to withdraw the United States from any other …activity with seeks to advance, authorize, fund, or in any way promote the creation of any structure to accomplish any form of North American Union.”

State President, Orlean Koehle, expressed her gratitude to Senator Harman who has taken the lead in the Senate on the resolution and in standing up for border protection in California. Mrs. Koehle stated, “It is wonderful to have a state senator who has the courage to take a stand for what he knows to be true, even though it may not be popular or deemed to be ‘politically correct.’ We need more elected officials like him.”

Other Eagle Forum leaders who spoke at the rally and did the lobbying that afternoon were: Georgiana Preskar, Director Sacramento Eagle Forum and author of a newly published book, Diversity Addiction; Jeanne Goodin, Vice President and Long Beach Chapter Leader and Anthony Moreno, 17-year old President of Teen Eagles of Sonoma County and first place state debate winner.

Other speakers at the rally and leaders of the grass-root groups that were part of the coalition were: Barbara Coe – Director California Coalition for Immigration Reform; Duane Wildie – Northern CA Leader for the John Birch Society; Brad Dacus – Director and Founder of Pacific Justice Institute; Lyman Stucky – Director of Sovereignty USA; Charles Bartlett – East Bay Immigration Reform and Golden Gate Minutemen; Art Bush – Redwood City Coalition for Immigration Reform; and Chelene Nightingale – Media Director of Southern California Save our State.Com.

All of the speakers were outstanding. Those in attendance felt it was well worth being there even though many of them had to travel several to attend. Several flew in from Southern California. Beautiful patriotic music and the sound system was provided free of charge by a great patriot disc jockey, Joe Oliver. Many attendees had never done lobbying before but were committed to protecting our nation’s sovereignty and actually ended up enjoying speaking to and passing out the packets to the legislators or their aids. All 130 packets were delivered to the various legislators’ offices.

The purpose of the rally was to do exactly what is now happening, to encourage state legislators to sign on to the resolution. It is based on a similar one that have been passed by at least one house of 19 state legislations and officially passed in both the house and the senate of three states: Idaho, Montana, and Oklahoma. Once the resolutions are signed by both branches of the state legislation they will be sent to the Majority Leader of the U.S. Senate and the Speaker of the House and to members of the California congressional delegation urging them to do what the resolution says – take a stand and stop the movement towards a North American Union!

After reviewing acknowledgments of God from all 50 state constitutions, one is faced with the prospect that maybe, the ACLU and the out -of-control federal courts are wrong! If you found this to be “Food for thought” copy and send to as many as you think will be enlightened as I hope you were.

(Please note that at no time is anyone told that they MUST worship God BUT YOU CAN PLEASE FEEL FREE TO DO SO.)
