    It’s not easy watching California self-destruct. After all, my four sons are 6th generation Californians. One relative of ours journeyed here prior to the Gold Rush when the state population was just a handful of people. Family lore has it he was a gunslinger who, victorious in a gun duel, headed to California to avoid the law. He ended up ranching on what is now known as Mammoth Mountain. Other family members took part in the gold rush and one ended up discovering gold in 1895 in the Mojave Desert. My grandparents arrived in Kern County in the 1930s and...

    Two teens reportedly confessed to eating the flesh of their murder victims as part of an initiation into a rising Mexican drug cartel, the San Antonio Express-News reported Tuesday. The newspaper reported El País, an international publication, described the horrifying cannibalism by initiates into Jalisco New Generation cartel. According to El País, the 16- and 17-year-old told officials in Tabasco in southern Mexico the flesh-eating occurred after cartel members broke into a car dealership, decapitated five people, and left a signed note May 22. Four days later, another dismembered body was discovered west of Tabasco in Nacajuca, according to El...

    Washington Times ^ | 25 July 2017
    A group that wants California to secede from the United States can start collecting signatures for its ballot initiative. The state attorney general issued an official ballot measure title and summary Tuesday. The campaign can now start gathering the more than 585,000 signatures it will need to qualify for the 2018 ballot. The initiative would form a commission to recommend avenues for California to pursue its independence and delete part of the state constitution that says it is an inseparable part of the U.S. The measure would also instruct the governor and California congressional delegation to negotiate more autonomy for...

    The College Fix ^ | May 10, 2017 | by Greg Piper
    It wasn’t a Cinco de Mayo party. It had no sombreros or tacos, as far as anyone knows. Yet the University of Chicago’s Phi Gamma Delta, known casually as FIJI, has nonetheless been reported for the “bias incident” of throwing a party where attendees wore construction outfits. Relevant to know: Its fraternity house has been “under renovation and construction for two years.” But activists don’t care about context. If the left-wing arbiters of cultural appropriation get their way, FIJI’s members could face disciplinary action. The Chicago Maroon reports that the party was originally scheduled for May 5, but its start...

    Californians wake up every day delighted to be in California, and then they remember that they are also in the United States. The bougainvillea catches the rising sun in San Clemente, the sapphire tide heaves into Big Sur - and three time zones to the East, President Donald Trump has been up and tweeting for hours. "I don't want to look at my phone in the morning," said Cynthia Blatt. "Some people are in shock. Some are angry. They don't know quite what to do." Blatt can't defend America from Trump anymore, but they can defend West Hollywood from Trump-like...

    Myself ^ | 10 February 2017 | MeganC
    There are some people in California currently gathering signatures to get an initiative on the ballot to change the language in California's constitution to allow California to secede from the USA. If it passes the law will also put a question on yet another future ballot asking if Californians want to secede. If the vote is yes then it becomes their declaration of independence. It might happen. I won't rule it out especially after 2016 in which so many 'impossible' things happened. So what happens if California votes to secede? Well, before they vote on independence but after they vote...

The effort is supported by the “Yes California” campaign, an organization that enjoys the support of the Russian government and whose founder, Louis Marinelli, now lives in Russia.

    Anti-Trump secessionists filed formal paperwork Monday launching their petition drive aimed at separating California from the union by first putting the issue before voters on the 2018 ballot. A petition submitted by the Yes California Independence Campaign calls for repealing language in the state constitution that describes California as an “inseparable part” of the nation and holding a vote on independence on March 13, 2019.

    That massive blue block on the left – encompassing California, Oregon, Nevada and Washington state – stands out quite a bit against all of the red. So it may not be a huge surprise that people living in that Democrat-voting block are now looking at other options – specifically, secession. Since Donald Trump’s electoral victory was first announced, #Calexit has been trending on Twitter, with distraught Californians looking to form their own state.

    Article from 2006: The nation’s television screens many days recently have been filled with scenes of huge crowds carrying the colorful green and red flag of Mexico viewers could well have thought it was a national holiday in Mexico City. It was instead, downtown Los Angeles, Calif., although the scene was recreated in numerous other cities around the country with substantial Mexican populations. Hordes of Mexican expatriates, many here illegally, were protesting the very U.S. immigration laws they were violating with impunity. They found it offensive and a violation of their rights that the U.S. dared to have immigration laws...

    While much of the country displayed their solidarity with Mexican people by wearing their biggest sombreros for Cinco de Drinko, a Chicano has made the best hat yet. A young Chicano from East L.A. decided to mix satire and a little bit of creativity by mocking Donald Trump's "Make America Great Again" slogan and creating red caps reading "Make America Mexico Again." His latest activist-wear didn't receive much backlash as expected, but hundreds of order requests.

    With Marco Rubio out of the race for the White House, two of his top backers in Texas are throwing their support to Ted Cruz. State Reps. James Frank of Wichita Falls and Jason Isaac of Dripping Springs, both Republicans, said Wednesday afternoon they plan to help out in whatever way possible to help elect Cruz, Texas' junior U.S. senator. "I’m definitely planning on backing Sen. Cruz at this point," Frank said. "I think honestly both Rubio and Cruz are very similar on the vast majority of issues."

The mayor of Kansas City, Kansas, in an address to the radical socialist organization National Council of La Raza, bragged that his city is no longer majority white and the city’s schools now have students who speak 62 different languages. According to the 2010 U.S. Census, Kansas City, Kansas, was 52 percent white. But in a speech before the La Raza National Affiliates Luncheon earlier this week in Kansas City, Mayor...

    No need to wait for former FLOTUS/Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to make up her mind about whether she wants into the Oval Office come 2017. United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce President CEO Javier Palomarez seems to believe there’s a perfectly viable alternative primed and ready to launch. Granted, Palomarez didn’t specifically say that Julián Castro, newly minted Secretary of Housing and Urban Development and twin brother of Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-Texas, needs to run for president in 2016.

    On Monday evening, California Governor Jerry Brown said all Mexicans, including illegal immigrants, are welcome in California. According to the Los Angeles Times, while introducing Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, who said America is “the other Mexico,” Brown “spoke about the interwoven histories of Mexico and California.” He “nodded to the immigrants in the room, saying it didn’t matter if they had permission to be in the United States.”
