We constantly hear now about California’s threat to secede from the US. In certain ways, it already has, such as declaring itself a “Sanctuary State” in explicit defiance of the Federal Government.
What is needed is to ask, why shouldn’t it be the other way around? Why shouldn’t the rest of America kick California out of the United States?
What was the Golden State has become a Third World Poverty Pit sprinkled with gated and walled enclaves of the fantastically wealthy 1% — just like every corrupt kleptocracy in Africa. California has become the poster child for the catastrophic destructiveness of Politically Correct Progressivism.
On March 1st, the headline on Fox News was: California Has Worst Quality of Life in U.S, Study Shows. That same day, the Los Angeles Times headline was: How Can a Place [Downtown Los Angeles] with 58,000 Homeless Continue to Function?
This state of disastrous affairs, the ruination of what was an American Paradise, is the complete and total creation of California Democrats, wielding monopoly power in the state government at Sacramento and the largest municipalities of LA and San Francisco.
Thanks to them, California has become an AINO State – American in Name Only – run by Hate America Marxists and flooded by them with illegal aliens illegally voting to keep them in perpetual power guaranteed with perpetual welfare paid for by exploited taxpayers.
There is a solution to all this: the rest of America stops putting up with it. We tell California to get the hell out of our country.
How do we do that? By calling California’s bluff to secede. We move to secede from them first. The strategy to do so requires three key steps.
Step One. Activate Article III of the Constitution to force California judicial secession.
Article III starts: “The judicial Power of the United States, shall be vested in one Supreme Court, and in such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish.”
All legal theory agrees that: “Since Congress possesses discretionary power to create lower federal courts, it must also be empowered to abolish them.” Cf: Congressional Power to Control the Jurisdiction of Lower Federal Courts by Penn Law Review (p. 3).
Thus Congress has full constitutional authority to break the pathologically anti-American 9th Circuit Federal Court apart. It could divide it into separate jurisdictions for Washington, Montana, Oregon, Idaho, Nevada, Arizona and Hawaii while abolishing it in California.
Note that the Constitution gives Congress alone this authority. Neither Presidential nor SCOTUS approval required nor veto allowed. A simple majority vote of both House and Senate (with filibuster disallowed) is all that’s needed.
If California wants to secede, then obviously it doesn’t want a federal court – okay, no problem. Henceforth, no decision or fiat issued by a California judge has any binding authority elsewhere in the US.
Step Two. Enact National Voter ID legislation to force California electoral secession.
If California wishes to secede, then no vote from California should be recognized in any federal election. If the state (or any other state for that matter) cannot provide clear proof of a voter’s US citizenship, the votes are fraudulent and will not be counted.
On that basis, California votes in presidential elections are excluded from the Electoral College.
As reported by Fox News (1/23), in April California will begin automatically registering adults who obtain or renew a driver’s license to vote.
This is why Michael Savage doesn’t stand a snowball’s chance on Venus of getting elected, or any other conservative in California, as millions of illegal alien votes will overwhelm them.
It’s already occurring in Illinois. As reported by Illinois News (2/23), New Chicago ID card created for undocumented immigrants will be accepted for voter registration.
The purpose of illegal alien advocacy by the Koch Brothers, US Chamber of Commerce, and Establishment Republicans is cheap labor. Nefarious and Un-American yes, but the Democrats’ purpose is vastly more so: Enable Voter Fraud to impose fascist tyranny upon everyone.
Which is why Democrat Voter Fraud via an illegal alien vote is the most important issue in America right now.
It cannot wait for asking about citizenship in the 2020 Census. It cannot wait for the 2020 election. Indeed, it cannot wait for this November, with the Dems promoting massive voter fraud to recapture the House and Senate.
Congress has to pass a bill (with no Senate filibuster allowed) to require proof of citizenship (US birth certificate or naturalization papers) to vote in a federal election, starting with all House and Senate seats up in 2018.
Step Three. Give Californians by Congressional District the choice to stay in or leave the US.
There are many millions of decent hard-working patriotic Californians who despise what the Democrat monopoly of power has done to them and their state.
They must be given the choice to stay or leave – “they” meaning of course legitimate voters with proof of citizenship, no illegals allowed to participate. No statewide referendum rigged by the Dems, but by Congressional District of which there are 53.
This would split the state pretty much in two. Here’s the red-blue CD map as of the 2016 election (39D-14R):
The bottom line to all of this: going on the offensive, making an all-out full court press on Sanctuary Secessionist California is the only way to cure the Democrat cancer that’s killing it.
What’s needed is this: persuade Pubs in Congress, conservative think tanks like Heritage, conservative sites like Breitbart, and conservatives on talk radio like Rush to full-bore advocate an offensive. Then get POTUS to get out in front and lead the parade to:
*Abolish the 9th Circuit in California via Article III
*Enact National Voter ID legislation for federal elections before November 2018
*Hold a Referendum by California CD to secede or stay in the US
California is dying. It is terminally ill from a Democrat Social Disease. Only a full-scale attack upon it with radically aggressive therapy will save it. For once cured, California can become the Golden State it once was yet again.
