    A White House petition gathering force calls for citizenship to be stripped and exile for anyone who signs a petition in favor of a state's secession. "Mr. President, please sign an executive order such that each American citizen who signed a petition from any state to secede from the USA shall have their citizenship stripped and be peacefully deported," the full petition reads. The title of the petition is, "WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO: Strip the Citizenship from Everyone who Signed a Petition to Secede and Exile Them." As of this writing, 2,205 have signed the petition; 22,795 more...

    A colossal waste of time, money, and the public's attention span is underway in the golden state. Casey Tolan of the Mercury-News reports: For the first time since before the Civil War, voters across California will decide in November on a proposal to split up the Golden State – potentially remaking it into three new states. An initiative dividing California, pushed by Silicon Valley venture capital investor Tim Draper, received enough signatures to qualify it for the November ballot, the Secretary of State's office confirmed Tuesday afternoon. Supporters of the radical plan submitted more than 600,000 signatures, and a random sample projected that...

    California is a diverse, populous state full of potential. Yet for residents in twenty-one counties in Northern Californiaand they are particular about their truly northern status compared to San Franciscothey feel left out. I learned first-hand about the struggles for these rugged salt-of-the earth conservatives during a three-day visit to the region. I gave two speeches on conservative activism and to recruit help for the fight against Californias increasingly unpopular sanctuary state law, SB 54.North State is so far north, the closest airport is in Medford, Oregon. The region stretches from Californias northwesternmost county, Del Norte, to the northeastern corner...

    Tim Draper is a rich man, but he understands he doesn't know it all.His first attempt to divide California into six states made little sense.So he went out and got some people who are experts on the subject.The result, Cal 3, is a political masterpiece.This could work. When California was admitted to the Union in 1850, it had only 92,000 people, most of them scrambling for gold in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada.That's why California's county lines are so screwy.Los Angeles County now has 10,000,000 people.Alpine County has 1,000. Cal 3 divides the state along lines that make...

    In a state consumed by conservation and environmental issues, one highly endangered species has long gone unnoticed and unprotected the California Conservative. Is it still possible to rescue them from the brink of extinction? Can their numbers be revived? And can they thrive here once again? While the nation continues to view California as a homogeneous voting block of individuals in lock step with an increasingly progressive liberal agenda, for Common Sense Californians up and down the left coast state, theres a sense that a different tide is rising. The ripple began in Los Alamitos where the city council...

    Two men have launched a campaign to divide rural California from the coastal cities, motivated by what they referred to as a tyrannical form of government, that doesnt follow the state or federal constitution, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. Unlike the failed 2016 campaign to split California into 6 states, the New California movement, founded by Robert Paul Preston and Tom Reed, seeks to consolidate rural California into a dinstinct economy separate from the coast. Preston and Reed say the citizens of the state live under a tyrannical form of government that does not follow the California and U.S. Constitutions....

  • California Moves One Step Closer to Secession from the Union

    Starting with the first day of 2018, California officially became USs first and largest sanctuary state, as a brand-new sweeping immigration law started producing effects on Monday, January 1st. The new law dubbed SB54 passed through the states legislature back in September. After DEM Governor Jerry Moonbeam Brown signed it into law in October, we can safely presume that California just took one step closer to secession from the Union, and we are not mincing words here. The problem with SB54 is that Californias police will no longer be allowed to participate in federal immigration enforcement actions, nor to ask...

    There are two kinds of people who support the Calexit movement. People living in California who think that their state would be far better off without being hitched to the rest of the union, and people living in every other state who can’t wait to get rid of California.I’d wager that latter of those two know something that most Calexit supporters in California do not. They know that the golden state is a toxic influence on the rest of the country. It’s become a breeding ground for leftists ideologies, and the people who believe those ideologies have run the...

    A recent poll suggests one in three California residents would support a possible secession from the U.S. because of their opposition to President Donald Trump. "There's such hostility towards Trump that many citizens believe it would be smarter to leave than fight," Democratic political strategist Steve Maviglio told Reuters. A Reuters survey revealed that 32 percent support the so-called Calexit, an increase of 12 percent since the last poll was conducted in 2014.

    SACRAMENTO Two leaders of the successful referendum to remove Britain from the European Union were recently in California, where they said favorable things about the newest version of a plan to split the state in pieces. As Arron Banks told a British newspaper, Its the worlds sixth largest economy, and its very badly run. He isnt the only person to believe that a breakup may be the best way to solve Californias intractable problems. Some news reports about the Yes California independence campaign used the term Calexit, which makes for good headlines because it sounds like Brexit, but its...

    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...

    Liberals used to hate secession, the notion that states could leave the Union as they did before the Civil War because they didnt agree with the policies of the federal government. But with Donald Trumps election, many California liberals suddenly have warm words for a budding ballot initiative that has just begun collecting signatures in order to place secession, or Calexit, on the ballot.

Louis Marinelli, a San Diego resident who is the leader of the group promoting an effort to turn the state into an independent country , organized the Moscow event that was publicized on social media. "We want to start laying the groundwork for a dialogue about an independent California joining the United Nations now," hesaid in an emailMonday.

    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.

    Abraham Lincolns election in 1860 led South Carolina to try to secede from the Union. Donald Trumps election last month has raised similar talk in California, known as the California Independence Campaign. Billionaire activist Tom Steyer said in that aftermath of the election that, Its impossible to look at the Trump campaign and not see a direct threat to the civil liberties and dignity of California citizens. The leftist anti-constitutionalist Jeff Rosen is also touting States Rights for the Left in a recent opinion piece. California cant secede. The Civil War settled that. But there are other potential avenues by...

    When people speak of Hillary Clinton winning the popular vote, they are really speaking about California. In that state, Hillary Clinton won 6,621,346 votes to Donald Trump's 3,549,576 as of this writing. This margin of over three million votes alone accounts for any claim that Clinton exceeded Trump in popular support. Consider some numbers. In New York, Trump won 37.5% of the vote; in New Jersey, Trump won over 40%; and in Illinois, Trump won 39.4%. Among sizably populated states that lean "overwhelmingly" Democrat, California is in a class by itself. Trump struggled to get even a third of Californian...

    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 Trumps electoral victory was first announced, #Calexit has been trending on Twitter, with distraught Californians looking to form their own state.

    An organization hoping to facilitate the secession of California from the Union is holding a meet and greet on the Capitol steps in Sacramento next Wednesday, November 9, 2016, or, the day after the presidential election. The Yes California Independence Campaign, which is based in San Diego, is aiming to qualify a citizen's initiative in 2018 to get a referendum for secession on the ballot in 2019. They'll be in Sacramento to garner support for their initiative.
