News Special, April 19

It’s Friday gang and there is a lot to report on but for lack of time before I head out to work, I’ll keep this as short and to the point as possible. Not going to talk about SB727 in this. This is about the Constitutional Money Act.

Senator Eigel’s SB735 (The Constitutional Money Act) had floor time on Thursday and a “roll call” vote was taken. The vote came in 17 yes, 13 no and 4 absent. This was not a vote to pass the bill, it was a vote to see what the temperature was and if folks who voted yes last year would vote no this year. It was a mixed bag. We have some work to do. We expect a third read and vote on SB 735 next week, most likely Thursday.

Before the call to action, I want to remind everyone that the last month of session is an emotional roller coaster. What’s worse it changes every day from good news to bad news and back again. This is the same every year. For those that were with us during the SAPA legislation of 2021, you’ll probably remember this.

Attached to this email is an image of the roll call votes in the Senate. First and foremost, we need to send some love to Democrat Senator Karla May, the ONLY Democrat to vote yes on the SB735 roll call vote (and SB100 last year)! We can certainly recognize and appreciate her willingness to vote yes on a sound money bill that most democrats in the general assembly do not want no matter how much their constituents want it.

CALL TO ACTION

Senator Karla May can be emailed here and her office phone number is 573-751-3599. Let’s make sure Senator May knows how much we appreciate her vote on SB735. Senator May was interviewed by the film crew for the sound money TV show because she was the only Democrat to vote “yes” in the Senate last year on SB100. She is a trail blazer on this issue for her party and should be a considered source of encouragement for the Democrats to support sound money legislation.

Next is Senator Mary Elizabeth Coleman. Although Senator Coleman did not vote during the roll call, she did co-sponsor the bill during the perfection process. We need to call and email Senator Coleman and thank her for co-sponsoring SB735 and let her know we look forward to her “yes” vote on third read for final Senate passage of the bill. You can call Senator Coleman’s office at 573-751-1492 and e-mail her here.

Next is Senator Lincoln Hough. Senator Hough voted yes last year on SB100 but declined to vote on the roll call yesterday for SB735. Senator Lincoln Hough wants to be the next Lt. Governor of the state of Missouri. Let’s let him know that declining to vote on the SB735 roll call (which is quickly headed on its way into the Missouri Republican platform) does not show leadership, it shows weakness. We expect more from someone who wants to be Lt. Governor especially since sound money is quickly making its way to the Missouri Republican platform. Senator Hough’s office number is 573-751-1311. You can e-mail Senator Hough here.

Finally, four Senators that need some extreme encouragement,

  1. Senator Mike Cierpoit was the ONLY republican Senator to vote “no” on SB100 last year. To no one’s surprise, he voted “no” on the SB735 yesterday. Let him know what you think of his vote. Ask him how his constituents are asking him to vote on the Constitutional Money Act. You can call Senator Cierpoit’s office at 573-751-1464 and email him here.
  2. Senator Justin Brown voted “yes” on SB100 last year but voted “no” on the roll call vote yesterday on SB735. I think phone calls and emails are in order here to question why he suddenly does not support virtually the SAME bill he voted yes for last year. Senator Brown’s office number is 573-751-5713. You can email Senator Brown here.
  3. Senator Mike Bernskoetter also voted “yes” last year on SB100 and voted “no” on the roll call for SB735 just like Senator Brown did. Let’s find out why and encourage him to vote “yes” on third read next week. Senator Bernskoetter’s office number is 573-751-2076. You can email Senator Bernskoetter here.
  4. Senator Elaine Gannon voted “yes” on SB100 last year but has inexplicably changed her vote to “no” for the roll call on SB735 yesterday. Let’s call and email the Senator end encourage her to vote “yes” on third read next week. Senator Gannon’s office number is 573-751-4008. You can email Senator Gannon here.

I cannot overstate how important this is to do. I know a lot of folks feel burned out and discouraged. However, we still have time to get this done. This call to action is VERY important and I am going to ask that everyone participate ASAP. This is not something to put off, it is something we should be working this weekend. I am also asking that EVERYONE share this with their networks and organizations immediately.

Finally, I want to say that SB735, HB1955 and SB835 would NEVER have gotten as far as they have without support. That credit goes to EVERYONE who has called, emails and showed up at the capitol to support this legislation. So my thanks to all of you who are supporting this legislation. We’re in the final month of the session (last day is May 17). Let’s keep working this and get it done. I spent a lot of time at the capitol this past week and am behind in my job. I am playing catch up once again and may have to work tomorrow (unfortunately). So in case there is no email tomorrow or live stream tomorrow night I wanted to let you all know that I will be attending the prepared homestead meeting this Sunday (21st). Also of interest, Ron Calzone of Missouri First is a featured speaker at the meeting! So if you have not met Ron, this is a good opportunity to do so. If you have never attended a meeting and are going, please email Travis at preparedhomestead@protonmail.com and let him know you want to come to the meeting. This is important since food is served there and a head count before the meetings are always helpful.

And for a bit of fun, I wanted to let you know that our friend Daniel Diaz (Citizens for Sound Money) is in Puerto Rico right now as I type this and is visiting with Mike Maloney. I am sure Daniel is sharing his stories with Mike from spending time with us in Missouri and how hard we have fought for Sound Money legislation.

May God bless us all with good health and with wisdom and courage.

News Letter Update, April 16

Hey gang, a Tuesday email! That must mean something? It does. I am going to give you a situation report on what I know so far.

Regarding SB735, HB1955 and SB835 (The Constitutional Money Act). Let’s start with HB1955.

HB1955 (Bill Hardwick) has just been reported out Financial Institutions after an 11 week vacation under the watchful eye of Michael O’Donnell (slow walking the bill – one of the many ways to kill a bill) it has FINALLY been reported in the rules committee. This bill was replaced by a new bill written by O’Donnell. The new bill only has legal tender, removal of capital gains and the language to prevent confiscation. That’s where it is, not much we can do on that one right now but amendments are being drafted to fix the bill.

SB835 (Sandy Crawford – amended with SB735) has left the Senate and has landed squarely in Financial Institutions where presumably it will get the same language treatment that HB1955 got from O’Donnell in this committee. It will most likely have a hearing soon in this committee. Any amendments drafted for HB1955 can be used on SB835. Also, if SB835 makes it through the process in the house it will most likely go to a conference committee where it may be repaired as well.

SB735 (Bill Eigel) has been patiently waiting for its time on the Senate floor. Two times this week, it was promised floor time in the Senate but the promises unfortunately were broken. We have a call to action on this one. Cindy O’Laughlin is the floor leader of the senate and is responsible for the calendars and schedule. This is where the pressure is needed.

Before I go forward with the information, I want to impress upon everyone that ALL communication with Representatives and Senators should be cordial and positive. Calling and emailing with anger does nothing except hurt any cause you have. Persistence and perseverance is always encouraged. When calling and emailing about silver and gold bills, stay positive and even try to smile a bit when on the phone, believe it or not, that often helps. Calling and emailing Senator Cindy O’Laughlin, the floor leader of the Senate is something I ask everyone to do, and to please do it soon. The clock is ticking.

An example of the communication could be: “Hello Senator, I am calling/emailing to ask about SB735, the gold and silver bill. I noticed it was supposed to be on the floor two times this week but it was never heard. I understand you run the floor calendar for the Senate and was wondering if you could get this important bill to the floor ASAP. This bill is important for our state and is something the Missouri government can do to help every citizen in the state to have another option for transactional money that does not lose value to inflation like the dollar does.”

Senator Cindy O’Laughlin’s office number: 573-751-7985. Email: cindy.olaughlin@senate.mo.gov

Now on to SB727. This bill has been the BIG controversial bill of the year. Almost everyone hates it with good reason. See the attached email copy from Shield Maidens in the last email. Anyway, tomorrow (Wednesday, April 17) we’ll knock and shock this monstrosity. Please join us in the capitol tomorrow (Wednesday) at 9:00AM to 5:00PM to pressure the House to dispatch this nightmarish bill and either amend it until it stops smelling like bat feces or just put this bill out of its misery. It may be on the floor tomorrow (Wednesday).

Parking at the capitol: I usually park downhill from St. Peter’s Church in any of 3 free parking zones. Here is a capitol map for parking.

 Conceal Carry in the capitol: If you have a state issued CCW permit, you can carry your weapon in the capitol. If you are Constitutional carry, you cannot carry in the capitol. You can always leave your weapon at home base (Representative Bill Hardwick’s office Room 205).

Lunch boxes and jackets: Since Bill Hardwick’s office is our official home base for this event, you can leave lunchboxes and coats in Bill’s office.

Meeting place: We will meet in the rotunda at 9:00AM on the first floor. This is easy to find, in fact you really can’t miss it as you have to go through security before entering the building which is right outside the rotunda.

Flyers: I encourage everyone to consider making their own flyers. If you cannot, flyers will be provided that you can use.

Team Leaders: Team leaders for knock and shock are voluntary. Team leaders are usually spokespeople for the group they lead. Folks who have never done this before will quickly learn from veteran team leaders who will be there just by watching and listening. Talking with a rep is just like talking to your neighbor, there is nothing to have anxiety over.

Questions: If you have questions, please feel free to text or call me (Patrick Holland). (417) 827-3146.

Those who cannot make it to the capitol, PLEASE call your rep and ask them to vote no on this bill ASAP. Here is the roster.

May God bless us all with good health and with wisdom and courage. 

Yours for liberty,

Special News Letter, April 15

It’s Monday. I am going up to the capitol today for some SB735 (Constitutional Money Act) business but wanted to get this email out before heading to Jeff City.

On Wednesday, folks can join Travis & Rivkah (Prepared Homestead), Kirby Lane (Rogue Politics) and I (as well as many other grassroots leaders) as we let the legislature know one more time that SB727 is simply not acceptable as written. I have included the official Missouri Freedom Initiative flyer that we will be handing out to reps on Wednesday. The event is from 9:00AM to 5:00PM. Many folks can’t stay that long, other folks can’t show up until the afternoon. This is fine and is standard fare for knock and shock operations.

It is important for people to understand that we, in the Initiative HAVE shut down bills before. We have joined forces with other grassroots in Missouri to do so as well. We’ve been very successful in doing so in the past. SB727 is quite different for many reasons but this is truly an all hands on deck moment. Please consider joining us at the capitol on Wednesday. I realize this is short notice and I am sorry for that but it is necessary that we do this, one more time to either amend or kill this bill.

Parking at the capitol: I usually park downhill from St. Peter’s Church in any of 3 free parking zones. Here is a capitol map for parking.

Conceal Carry in the capitol: If you have a state issued CCW permit, you can carry your weapon in the capitol. If you are Constitutional carry, you cannot carry in the capitol. You can always leave your weapon at home base (Representative Bill Hardwick’s office Room 205).

Questions: If you have questions, please feel free to text or call me (Patrick Holland). (417) 827-3146.

Those who cannot make it to the capitol, PLEASE call your rep and ask them to vote no on this bill. Here is the roster.

May God bless us all with good health and with wisdom and courage.

News Letter April 12

Happy Saturday gang. Unfortunately, we will not have a live stream tonight. In the past 3 weeks I have spent a lot of time in the capitol and on Missouri business. At this time, I have customers who have patiently waited for me and now they must receive my full attention so I am working at a customer site today and tonight.


I regret we can’t do a live stream tonight. There has been a LOT of talk about SB727 and the possibility of home schools being classified as “gun free zones.” A lot of folks have e-mailed, called texted and tagged me on social media about this issue. Aaron Dorr (Missouri Firearms Coalition) and Ron Calzone (Missouri First) have chimed in as well as many others. The fact is, there is a LOT wrong with SB727. Kirby Lane (Rogue Politics) has outlined many issues with the bill as have others. In the Initiative, we have a flyer that was distributed this last week at the capitol about 727’s Constitutional and technical problems and about collecting data on the kids (leading to class wallets and a form of social credit scoring). This is something we are more familiar with. As with each grassroots group, we have our own area of expertise. Some attorneys find fault with the 2nd amendment issue others do not. It’s a speculative issue on the status of gun ownership at a home school. There is a lot to dislike in this bill.

It all comes down to the vouchers and what the government demands of the people in order to get financial assistance for education. The entire idea about school vouchers began decades ago but it was very different from what we have today. In the beginning of the term “school vouchers” and “school choice” were designed as no strings attached vouchers. What many folks (such as myself) learned recently, is that government will NEVER have “no strings attached” vouchers. There will always be strings. What we must decide as a society is how much control over our kids and mediocre curriculum we are willing to tolerate for “free” school or vouchers. For all homeschoolers I have personally communicated with, the answer is bold and simple… “no strings.” If strings exist, they want NOTHING to do with the money (and legislation). They want OUT of the bill completely – as in absolutely no legislative definition for “home school” included in the bill.

In other states such as West Virginia and North Carolina legislative definitions for FPE (Family Paced Education) and home school were exactly the same minus the vouchers (under PFE). What we have learned is that some states conjoin the definitions for FPE and Home school that places homeschooled kids under the same parameters as FPE even though the home schools do not take the voucher. This is ABSOLUTELY an unacceptable scenario with broad ramifications.

The next question is why politicians are not listening to us, the grassroots on this issue, why the rumor of no amendments for SB727 in the house to repair this deeply flawed legislation, why the attacks from conservative politicians…etc. The answer is quite simple…money. A LOT of money has gone into this bill to try to ensure its passage. Millions of dollars from questionable sources has poured into Missouri PACs (Political Action Committees) to try to get this bill through. Republicans and Democrats alike have received this money. The story is as old as time itself. As a reminder of the 45 steps to Communism, here is step 17… “17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.” The irony is, this bill would be MUCH more acceptable IF DESE (Department of Elementary and Secondary Education) was reduced to about 3% of its current size and scope.

The soft integration of DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion), SEL (Social Emotional Learning), Common Core, CRT (Critical Race Theory) and others are inherently Marxist ideas and techniques. It’s part of the Prussian model for schools in communist countries. The idea is for the schools to churn out workers who cannot critically think. Communist nations depend heavily on this model to prevent revolutions and general dissidence of folks unhappy with totalitarian leadership and the iron grip of oppressive government. This is not tinfoil hat stuff, this is unfortunately our reality now. Parents who have their children in the public school system need to pay attention like they did when schools closed over the “scamdemic.” Exploring ideas from differing perspectives and analyzing the results is a process called “critical thinking.” Society has been trained to call critical thinkers “conspiracy theorists.” Unfortunately from my point of view, a lot of people who call folks “conspiracy theorists” suffer from a form of cognitive dissonance. Without critical thinking, we cannot solve problems with the best solutions. Without free speech, the best ideas lay dormant in someone’s mind rather than exploring the ideas and expanding on them in a public forum (think school board meetings).

Many folks I know personally have expressed something I personally agree with, get your kids out of the public school system no matter the personal cost. Choose another option even if it financially hurts. The wolf is not at the door because it’s already in the building. Reasonable people can disagree on how bad the public school system is. I talk with democrats from time to time and some do agree the public school system is dumbing down the kids. However, it is personally disturbing to me how many parents are willing to cash in academic achievement for DEI and school sports. Bread and circuses.

With all this in mind, a lot of folks would like to show up in Jefferson City on Wednesday and I encourage folks to do this. I will definitely be there approximately 9:00AM. Among other things, it is important for our elected representatives to understand the resolve of the grassroots and the people. We do not care how much money they have received to further this issue legislatively. They are there to serve us. If they turn a deaf ear to the people, they must be replaced in November (or in the primary on August 6th). Create flyers with your concerns on SB727 and bring them with you. I did not envision this being the fight it has become however, the grassroots have coalesced into an impressive juggernaut to shut this legislation down. Even the public schools want this shut down but the public schools do not have the benefit of DESE to organize because DESE is for the bill as they stand to benefit from this. The public schools organized under MASA on this one for their appearance at the capitol to protest the bill.

As with most distractions, you have to use your peripheral vision to see what else is going on during the distraction. The Constitutional Money Act is still in play. I am working this hard as are MANY others. The call to action for this is quite simple. Please call/email your Senators and voice your support for SB735. This is important. Remember to communicate WHY the bill is important to you when you contact your Senator. I am working on a new flyer that will contain the Congressional Districts that are working to make gold/silver legal tender part of the Republic Platform that will be used next week..

To wrap up, I want to extend my heartfelt thanks to everyone who is actively involved in the political process in Missouri. For most of us, it is an extreme sacrifice of our time and resources and there is no compensation other than the fact that we are doing our part to prevent Missouri from becoming Illinois. It is because of all of you that Missouri has a fighting chance to become much freer and liberty minded and Constitutional. For those who cannot get involved politically, I ask for constant prayers for those who are in the fight. Missouri is worth saving.

I will endeavor to get another email out soon with more details on Wednesday activities and the Constitutional Money Act but lack the time to do so today.

May God bless us all with good health and with wisdom and courage.

April 6 News Letter

Happy Saturday, gang! As we gear up for tonight’s live session 7:30 PM Central on Rumble, Twitter (X), Odysee and You-Tube, we’re setting the stage for a conversation that extends beyond our usual discussions. While we often delve into strategies for legislative success in Missouri, tonight’s focus shifts to the underlying imperative of the Constitutional Money Act.

The urgency of this matter cannot be overstated. Citizens for Sound Money, with Daniel Diaz at the helm as Executive Director, has been an important ally in our quest to pass sound money legislation in Missouri. Daniel joins us tonight to dissect the precariousness of our current financial system, underscoring the necessity for a viable alternative.

The looming shadow of a potential economic downturn, particularly in the realm of commercial real estate, has sparked concerns of a crisis that could dwarf the turmoil of 2008. These discussions, largely absent from mainstream media, have found a home on alternative platforms, highlighting a brewing storm that could have profound impacts on us all.

This narrative of fiscal distress extends to the education sector, where schools, rather than tightening belts, have leveraged recent bond approvals to secure funding, amplifying the tax burden on local communities. This trend, echoing the fiscal challenges of states like Illinois, serves as a stark reminder of government priorities, often at odds with the well-being of its citizens.

In times of economic strain, gold and silver have historically provided a buffer. Yet, in our current climate of unchecked monetary expansion and bailout culture, the true allegiance of governments is laid bare. As we navigate an environment rife with financial pitfalls, from perilous interest rates to the specter of over-leveraged derivatives, the Federal Reserve’s playbook seems all too familiar—more printing, rate manipulation, and a push towards digital currencies, all at the populace’s expense.

Missouri stands at a crossroads, with its gold and silver legislation not only safeguarding the state but also setting a precedent for others to follow. Our efforts in Missouri are watched closely, as we endeavor to forge a path that others might emulate in the face of fiscal adversity.

Join Daniel and me tonight on Missouri Liberty Radio for a dialogue that promises to be enlightening. With key figures in the gold and silver community poised to contribute, this is an episode you can’t afford to miss. To ensure accessibility, we’ll also be streaming live on the Missouri Freedom Initiative’s social channels.

 

I made a mistake with my last email, Daniel and I will be on Sam Britton’s show “Off the Cuff” on Missouri Liberty Radio tomorrow night, Sunday April 7th from 6:00PM to 9:00PM Central. We will stream Sam’s show from the Missouri Freedom Initiative’s streams as well. Tonight, the regular live stream as stated and linked in the previous email. Sorry for any confusion this might have caused.

But our engagement doesn’t end with gold and silver. We’re also spotlighting legislation, like Senator Jason Bean’s SB782 on water rights, that demands our attention. Witness my live call to Senator Mike Moon’s office, as we advocate for killing legislation that threatens our freedoms in Missouri.

Don’t miss out on this vital conversation. Your presence and participation are more crucial than ever as we navigate these turbulent times together.

See you tonight!

May God bless us all with good health and with wisdom and courage.

Yours for liberty,

March 30 News Letter

Happy Saturday gang! We will be live tonight at 7:30 PM Central time on the usual platforms, Rumble, Twitter (X), Odysee and You Tube. There is a lot going on legislatively and otherwise so I will try to keep this e-mail short and to the point.

First, a bit about SB727. It is rare to see a bill flying through the general assembly when nearly the entirety of the conservative grassroots are actively against it. Well, SB727 (Education bill) exemplifies that concept. This happens when politicians have a “firm conviction” on the bill OR when they have received campaign donations to support the bill. Pressure is mounting from SB727 supporters and financial backers on representatives up in Jefferson City to vote “yes” on SB727. American Federation for Children, Quality Schools, Rex Finkquefield, The Herzog Group, Americans for Prosperity and others are giving campaign contributions for “yes” votes.

Senator Koenig’s SB727 has been a source of contention for most of the conservative grassroots around the state because it targets homeschoolers. Some suggest SB727 would actually be a good move for Missouri IF it was passed AND DESE (the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education) was defunded. That’s a BIG “IF.” If SB727 passes into law AND DESE is not defunded is the nightmare scenario. There is no provision in this bill to shrink or otherwise defund DESE in this bill. In fact, this bill empowers DESE even more – this is the elephant in the room. In fact, the elephant in the room also has a lactose intolerance condition and has been eating nothing but government cheese for months. Even the Missouri public schools are against this bill! This bill has had the benefit of greased skids and is moving VERY quickly, so the people of Missouri must move quickly to change or kill it.

Homeschoolers need to be aware that there will be a meeting of home school dads in Jefferson City with elected representatives that WANT to hear the homeschoolers’ point of view in regards to SB727. No e-mail or phone calls for this event, just face to face conversation with representatives that do want to understand ALL points of view with this legislation and its effects. You can sign up to be there at this grassroots website. AND we’ll talk more about this tonight. This event is a very good idea. Wednesday at 9:00AM in the rotunda. I STRONGLY recommend that this meeting be well attended by home school dads. This is VERY important. This is truly an all hands on deck moment. Remember, showing up at the capitol is a superpower.

Retha and Gretchen will be on tonight. This is the last time to hear from them before Tuesday (elections). They will be updating everyone on any new information they have found, what to do if you do not know about your school bond issue, how to vet your school board hopefuls and more. It’ll be a good opportunity to ask questions to these two ladies that have worked tirelessly to inform the public on school bond issues before Tuesday’s vote. Gretchen’s blog is PACKED with good information and is updated frequently.

I did dabble into You-Tube shorts (1 minute long videos) for the first time and put out three videos. I intended to do more but the lack of time caught up with me again. The first video is about the use of the term “no tax increase bond issue.” The second video is about Stifel Financial (Owensville’s school financier) and their partnership with the WEF. The third video about more deceptive language on the ballot for school bonds. PLEASE feel free to share these videos with EVERYONE you know, in or out of Missouri as these videos apply to everyone nationwide.

Silver and gold bills are moving! Most of this data will be shared tonight on the stream but the newest call to action is to e-mail AND call your Senators to support SB735 (The Constitutional Money Act). That’s right, SB735 will be heard on the Senate floor as early as Tuesday or Wednesday this coming up week. To top that off, HB1955 will have an executive session on Tuesday in the Financial Institutions committee. Daniel Diaz with Citizens for Sound Money and the film crew will be back for this and we will be filming in Jefferson City on Tuesday and possibly Wednesday. To top that off, SB735 was amended onto Senator Crawford’s SB835, so another avenue has been built for possible passage of this legislation. Parts of SB735 have been amended to other bills as well.

I’d like to give a shout-out to Rhyno Coetsee (newly appointed CEO) and Daniel Diaz (Executive Director) of Citizens for Sound Money for helping in Missouri’s effort to help us pass the Constitutional Money Act. Their help has been invaluable and has continued unabated even as Jim Forsythe (CEO) passed away a few weeks ago. We were fortunate enough to meet Jim when he and Daniel came to Missouri to help with the House hearing on HB1955 on February 27th. They traveled here at their own expense and provided the goldbacks at their expense to distribute to legislators on March 11. Jim Forsyth passed away just a few weeks after he traveled to Missouri to help us with HB1955.

I’ve been on many radio shows and you-tube broadcasts in the past three weeks, so many in fact I can’t remember them all and I did not link them in previous e-mails. However, in the past week I’ve been on Jodi Grace’s podcast talking about Missouri’s effort to get silver and gold legislation across the finish line, I’ve been on 2 videos with Alex Horat (Free American Press). The first was about our silver/gold legislation and the second was about school bonds (Retha joined in as well). The second video has not yet been released.

John Williams invited Libertarian Presidential candidate Mike ter Maat to his live stream last night (Friday, 3-29-24). You can see this on You Tube or on Rumble.

From Sam Britton and Missouri Liberty Radio: “Hello everyone, there will be no live OTC broadcast this week, due to everybody spending time with their families due to the Easter holiday. But for those of you that want to hear it, we are going to replay the first broadcast with both John Williams, and Scott Griffith in studio.”

For those who may not know, Sam’s signature program “Off the Cuff” AKA OTC is always available on Sam’s website in the archives. You can peruse this page and find shows you missed or shows you’d like to hear again.

That’s all for now gang. I hope to see many of you tonight on the live stream.

Congratulations to Idaho! Idaho’s SB1314 has passed both houses and is awaiting the Governor’s signature. SB1314 is a gold and silver depository of sorts. An impressive first step to protecting the people’s money!

May God bless us all with good health and with wisdom and courage.
