The Superior Court of California, County of Santa Clara is currently recruiting volunteers for the 2019-2020 Civil Grand Jury. The Civil Grand Jury, an arm of the Superior Court, is a part of the judicial branch of government. It serves as the county’s civil watchdog agency and may examine all aspects of county and city government, special districts, and school districts. It is authorized to inspect and audit books, records, and financial expenditures to ensure accountability of public funds. The Grand Jury may also inspect jails and juvenile detention facilities. Grand Jury service affords citizens the unique opportunity to contribute to the efficiency of local government and to play an integral part in ensuring that government officials are accountable to residents. Grand jurors are civic-minded individuals who are agents of change in their communities. Grand jurors come from all walks of life with varying interests and life experiences; however, they share a common thread: dedication to democratic ideals. Applicants must be 18 years of age or older, United States citizens, and residents of Santa Clara County for at least one year prior to selection. Service on the grand jury does require a time commitment of an average of 25 hours per week, or as determined by the Grand Jury. Candidates must be willing to dedicate this year of service to keep careful watch over various aspects of County government, and the one-year term of the 2019-2020 panel will begin on June 20, 2019. Grand Jurors are paid per diem for all official grand jury business and reimbursed for their mileage. The application deadline is Friday, March 29, 2019. Persons interested in applying may obtain an application online at www.scscourt.org under “Civil Grand Jury.” Questions about the Grand Jury may also be directed to CGJ@scscourt.org or by contacting Britney Huelbig, Deputy Manager with the Superior Court, at (408) 882-2721.

Many of you are aware that every several years, the California Department of Education, the Instructional Quality Commission, and the State Board of Education reviews K-12 curriculum standards in various subject areas.
Currently, it is in the process of adopting a new version of the “Health Education Framework for California Public Schools, Kindergarten Through Grade Twelve.” From now until January 11, 2019, the public can weigh in on the content of this framework.
I am reaching out to you regarding an area of particular concern on components of the framework involving sex education. As a result of the passage of the California Healthy Youth Act – AB 329 (Weber, D-San Diego) in 2015 – school districts are now required to provide middle and high school students with a “comprehensive sexual health education.”
Creating Condom Confidence – Grade 9 – “The lesson has students review the steps to using condoms correctly by the teacher modeling how to use condoms correctly…The homework is to go to a store to try and buy condoms and reflect on the experience and reaction from store employees, if any.”
What are My Reproductive Rights? – Grade 12 – Topics covered include minors’ rights to abortion.
The Pleasure Principle – Grade 12 – Lesson on sexual response cycle not released or made public. According to the curriculum, it is “currently being piloted.”
These concepts and others are a reflection of the state’s suggested framework for teaching on the topic of adolescent health. While it may be appropriate for classes to include lessons for students about their changing bodies, topics like the ones listed above should be reserved for conversations between parents and their children, when they choose to discuss them.
To learn more about the draft “Health Education Framework for California Public Schools, Kindergarten Through Grade Twelve” you can click here, and then navigate to Chapter 6.
As you review Chapter 6, and particularly the section on “Growth, Development, and Sexual Health,” you will see that the information presented in the framework itself is carefully couched and may not necessarily include explicit references. However, going deeper into the listed curricula, you will clearly see the agenda that is being pushed.
At this point, I would encourage you and your networks or congregations to make your voices heard on this issue and contact the Department of Education, the Instructional Quality Commission, and the State Board of Education to express your concerns.
Feedback in this instance could be as straightforward as:
“Chapter 6, Page 29, Lines 780-781: The suggested curricula – San Francisco Unified School District’s Be Real. Be Ready. Smart Sexuality Education and Advocates for Youth 3Rs: Rights, Respect, Responsibility – both include sexual information that goes beyond what is necessary to teach children in a classroom setting. Many topics should be rightly reserved for parents to discuss with their children. Please remove these curricula as examples of acceptable curricula to use in teaching on this topic.”
Thank you for your consideration. This curriculum is inappropriate and wrong and we must do what we can to work against it. We have a responsibility to be vigilant and watchful for our young people. I appreciate all that you have done to be engaged in issues impacting California and look forward to continuing these efforts with you in the future.
CHECK DONATIONS: Make Payable to : WeFund The Wall
4833 Front St. Unit B-158
Castle Rock, CO 80104
————————————————————— The government has accepted large private donations before, most recently a billionaire donated $7.5 Million to fund half of the Washington Monument repairs in 2012; this is no different.
Like a majority of those American citizens who voted to elect President Donald J Trump, we voted for him to Make America Great Again. President Trump’s main campaign promise was to BUILD THE WALL. And as he’s followed through on just about every promise so far, this wall project needs to be completed still.
As a veteran who has given so much, 3 limbs, I feel deeply invested to this nation to ensure future generations have everything we have today. Too many Americans have been murdered by illegal aliens and too many illegals are taking advantage of the United States taxpayers with no means of ever contributing to our society.
I have grandparents who immigrated to America legally, they did it the correct way and it’s time we uphold our laws, and get this wall BUILT!It’s up to Americans to help out and pitch in to get this project rolling.
“If the 63 million people who voted for Trump each pledge $80, we can build the wall.” That equates to roughly 5Billion Dollars, even if we get half, that’s half the wall. We can do this.
Democrats are going to stall this project by every means possible and play political games to ensure President Trump doesn’t get his victor. They’d rather see President Trump fail, than see America succeed. However, if we can fund a large portion of this wall, it will jumpstart things and will be less money Trump has to secure from our politicians.
This won’t be easy, but it’s our duty as citizens. This needs to be shared every single day by each of you on social media. We can do it, and we can help President Trump make America safe again!
• How do you know this is not a scam? I’m using my real name, my real information, you can contact me and hold me accountable. People who try to scam you will not be upfront with their information, they will hide and not use their name. I have a public figure Facebook page with a blue check mark issued by facebook that verifies my identity. I’m a retired United States Air Force member who was wounded in Iraq, and lost 3 limbs. I have a website BrianKolfage.com where you can verify more about me. I will respond. I’ve been on Fox News many times, you can see I’m credible and a real person. Do your research before donating, and contact me if you have any questions.
• How will we get the funds to the right place? We have contacted the Trump Administration to secure a point of contact where all the funds will go upon completion. When we get this information secured we will update. We have many very high level contacts already helping.
• Republican Representative Representative Warren Davidson has bill on the table right now HR 7207 that if passed with Gov Funding bill we can give the funds towards the wall, and with our contractual guarantee to only be used on the wall.
• Rep Andy Harris Introduced the Border Wall Bonds Act of 2018, if passed with the Gov Funding bill it will allow us to donate towards the wall.
this Act funds only for the construction of the wall, nothing else.
• 100% of your donations will go to the Trump Wall.
• We are working with a law firm on a legal document that will bind the government to using the funds for the border wall itself, nothing else.
• We will hold all funds and not release a single penny until we have all legal aspects covered to ensure our money goes only to the wall.
LET’S GET THIS WALL BUILT! And make America Safe Again!
David Rubin is the former mayor of Shiloh, Israel. While the Palestinians and the mainstream media continually refer to towns in this area as “West Bank Settlements”, this is the Biblical heartland of Israel: Judah and Samaria. Rubin is the founder and president of Shiloh Israel Children’s Fund (SICF) – dedicated to healing the trauma of child terror victims, as well as rebuilding the biblical heartland of Israel through the children. SICF was established after Rubin and his three-year old son were shot and wounded by terrorists while driving home from Jerusalem.
Jews are passionate people and have been on the front lines of the debate over the presidency of Donald J. Trump. Some of his bold policy decisions, such as recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and confronting Iran, have been influenced by Jews who are close to him. However, most American Jews voted for his opponent raising the obvious question, “How can a president that has been so good to the Jews fail to receive their support?”
“Trump and the Jews” clearly explains the complicated, yet fascinating relationship with this president and a complex people that, after 1,000 years of sovereignty in Israel, almost 2,000 years of success, persecution and slaughter in exile, and a miraculous return to the Land of Israel, is still struggling with identity.
David Rubin is a frequently commentator on Fox News and many television/radio shows. His articles and blogs have appeared in the Jerusalem Post, Israel National News, and other publications. Rubin is a featured speaker and known as the “Trusted Voice of Israel”. Born and raised in Brooklyn, Rubin has resided for many years in the town of Shiloh, Israel’s capital city for 369 years, in the time of Joshua, Hannah and Samuel the Prophet.

Sebastian Gorka to Launch Nationally Syndicated Radio Show with Salem Radio Network
CAMARILLO, Calif. – Salem Media Group (NASDAQ:SALM), announced today that Salem Radio Network is launching a new talk show hosted by Dr. Sebastian Gorka. The show—“America First with Sebastian Gorka”—will debut January 1, 2019 and will air daily in the 3pm to 6pm ET daypart on the SRN platform, replacing the Michael Medved show.
“I couldn’t be more pleased to have talent like Sebastian Gorka joining the Salem lineup,” said Salem Media Group’s CEO Edward Atsinger. “He’s a perfect fit. Brilliant, insightful, educated and uniquely experienced. A great addition to the best faculty in Talk Radio.”
Michael Medved commented, “I feel grateful for the more than 21 years I’ve worked with Salem Media Group, and I wish continued success to my friends and colleagues at the network. Together with my team of producers here in Seattle, we’ll be continuing our daily broadcast with no interruption, making it available to our devoted listeners in an exciting new format. We’ll also move forward with our emphasis on history programs and commentary to encourage public appreciation of the real blessings of this amazing country. Stay tuned.”
Gorka is Fox News Channel’s National Security Strategist and is a regular guest on Hannity and the FOX Business Network. He writes for “The Hill” and is the nationally bestselling author of Why We Fight: Defeating America’s Enemies—With No Apologies (Regnery) and Defeating Jihad: The Winnable War (Regnery). Gorka was an advisor to candidate Donald Trump and served on the staff of the White House in 2017 as Deputy Assistant to the President for Strategy.
“Radio has always been my first love, since I listened to talk radio late at night on a transistor radio as a child,” said Gorka. “America is finally recovering its rightful place as the shining city on a hill after 8 years of liberal self-loathing.” Gorka added, “Salem’s broadcasts are essential to that recovery and I am honored to join Salem’s team, the greatest lineup in talk radio with true patriots like Prager, Gallagher, Hewitt, Elder, and Metaxas.”
“There is a culture war going on in this country, and Dr. Gorka is uniquely qualified to take this fight to talk radio,” said Salem Radio Network Senior Vice President, Phil Boyce. “His program will deal with the hot breaking news stories of each day, and help listeners understand what to make of it.”
Gorka has a unique story. His father was imprisoned in communist Hungary, because he was a freedom fighter against Communism. He was sentenced to life in prison for his views and escaped to the United Kingdom. He escaped with a young woman whom he would later marry, and they became Gorka’s mother and father. Gorka was raised in London and was groomed on London talk radio from an early age. He obtained his doctorate in Political Science from Corvinus University in Budapest in 2010, was a fellow at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, served as Associate Dean at National Defense University, and has also taught at Georgetown University.
“The Listener feedback we receive each time Dr. Gorka fills in for one of our Network hosts is overwhelming,” added Salem Broadcast Division President David Santrella. “I think Dr. Gorka is the right person at the right time and the Salem Radio Network is definitely the right place.”
