    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...
  • Calexit III? New ballot measure plots another route to California independence (YES!)

    On Thursday, people unhappy with Californias place in the United States filed yet another proposed ballot measure that could lead to the Golden State striking out on its own. This time, the goal is convening a U.S. constitutional convention to overhaul what proponents call a moldy national blueprint out of step with life in California. The measure says a reworked Constitution should include a provision creating a clear and reasonable path for states to achieve complete independence from the United States should any state so choose. No state has become independent under the existing U.S. Constitution. The world has changed...

    In contrast to the so-called Calexit movement, which aspires to secession, these proponents see Californias salvation in greater local autonomy within the union. A few years ago, a bid to create six states out of California drew wide media attention but ultimately fizzled. Now, the architect of that effort, a tech billionaire named Timothy C. Draper, is back with another idea: three Californias. He submitted paperwork that would put the question before voters in 2018.

  • 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...

    Any statistician or economist will tell you there is a huge world of difference between the improbable and the impossible. Brexit and the Trump presidency were both thought to be impossible, but they were proven to simply have been improbable. And whenever I see an article about the move for California to secede from the United States (the so-called Cal-exit), the more I think that a vote to split is inevitable rather than improbable. As a member of the California Freedom Coalition recently told the Sacramento Bee, collecting signatures for the 2018 ballot, We feel like this current initiative is...

    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...

    California could secede from the United States. Signatures are being hurriedly gathered for a 2018 ballot initiative that would begin the process of independence for the Golden State. Awesome. Break a leg. I wholeheartedly endorse #Calexit and heres why you should too. About a third of the entire welfare population of the United States lives in California. Lets make that the Independent Country of Californias problem, not ours. An estimated 2,350,000 illegal immigrants (about the population of Connecticut) reside there too. In the new California they can all be legalized and wont have to dwell in the shadows.

    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.

    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...

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...

    Californias secession movement, CalExit, gained momentum immediately following Donald Trumps victory in November, but it seems to have already fizzled out. Yes California, the leading political action committee fighting for Californias independence from the union, capitalized on the shift in public opinion after Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton overwhelmingly carried the state on Election Day. Last January, for example, the campaign committee submitted a proposal to Secretary of State Alex Padilla, allowing it to collect the signatures necessary to create a ballot-box measure for the November 2018 election. The proposal, intended to repeal the provision in Californias Constitution that describes...
