‘Calexit’: California Movement Opens ‘Embassy’ In Moscow
rt.com ^ | 18 Dec, 2016

Posted on 12/19/2016 6:05:38 AM PST by Helicondelta

Speaking at a press conference on Sunday, Louis Marinelli, leader of the movement, said the embassy will not deal with diplomatic issues, but will act as more of a cultural center that will educate Russians about California's history, boost trade ties and promote tourism.

“We're not requesting military assistance from Russia,” Marinelli explained.

“We're certainly going to request recognition of our independence and recognition of our [2019] independence referendum result, as we're going to request that the entire international community recognizes the results.”

Literally delusional. The only question at this point is how much shooting there will be in the inevitable Civil War.

I hope Trump builds a wall around CA.

BTW, have you ever noticed that the abbreviation for California is CA, and the abbreviation for cancer is also CA. Coincidence? I think not.

The last time I checked, this question was settled in 1865. Set up a blockade of the coast, seal all of the state's borders, establish the state as a no-fly zone, and remove their governor and legislature as co-conspirators in treason. THEN, we can begin a rational dialog.

Not that I have an opinion about the state, or anything....

How bout “election assistance” from Russia to remove Jerry Brown, Harris, Pelosi et al?

Grant California its independence. That’s 56 less liberal electoral votes.

Hilarious! I recall the Americans huffing in outrage when Crimea freely voted to join Russia.

And here they’re invoking the Kosovo precedent.

Hypocrisy knows no bounds.

When the South tried to do what California is talking about (seceding) the Federal Government fought tooth and nail to stop it.

We ended up with 600,000 dead Americans and another 400,000 wounded.

Will the Feds fight California the way they did the South?

This time a lot of illegals would be among the casualties.

There might be some issues to resolve vis a vis San Diego Naval base, Camp Pendleton, and the National Parks that belong to all Americans, but I'm sure we can work out something that lets the urban centers of San Francisco, Oakland, and Los Angeles split off to misgovern themselves. As long as there's a good high armed border wall surrounding all three we should be good.

California is already gone and can’t be reclaimed. Let them go; the Republican Party is non-existent in the State; their public schools are the worst in the nation; they have 1/10 of the population and 1/3 of the nation’s welfare cases; they have the US’ greatest disparity between extreme wealth and poverty; they automatically register to vote illegal aliens when they get a driver’s license; they didn’t even have a Republican candidate for the Senate; they’ve got a veto proof legislature; and they would take 55 automatic left electoral votes, two kook senators and 39/53 congressfolk with them. I would imagine the City of San Diego, the interior farm and highlands and the far north would stay, the people and the territory of which would be most welcome.

Without checking my copy of it, this may be un-Constitutional.

Maybe Putin will offer to monitor their 2018 elections

Or just send teams of ngo’s to open up dialogue about democracy with state dissidents

Fine. Let Russia finance the millions of parasites in what used to be the Golden State. Let all those illegals demand their ‘rights’ from the Russian Federation - see how far they get.

They’ll be singing ‘My Country Tis of Thee’ faster than you can say Amigos.
