Making California American Again

Making California American Again

Californians targeting Sacramento for swamp-draining.

I can forgive Legal Insurrection fans who think that Californians have lost their collective minds.

1) We have a group openly promoting secession and a state government that approved a #CalExit petition effort.
2) A senior politician seriously suggested the state withhold transfer of funds to the federal government.
3) Our representatives are mulling over a third gender option for identity documentation.

Furthermore, in response to President Trump’s move to end sanctuary cities, our government officials are working to declare California a “Sanctuary State”.

California Senate Democrats moved Tuesday to become the first “sanctuary state,” advancing bills that would create a statewide sanctuary for illegal immigrants, provide money to pay lawyers for immigrants facing deportation and hamper any attempts by the Trump administration to create a Muslim registry.

The move comes days after President Trump launched his crackdown on immigration and sanctuary cities across the nation.

The bills that are in the “Sanctuary State” suite include:

  • California Senate Bill 54, entitled the California Values Act (which would prohibit local police forces from helping federal authorities deport people who are in the U.S. illegally) and
  • California Senate Bill 6, would provide money for legal services for undocumented immigrants.
  • California Senate Bill 31, which would prohibit state agencies from sharing information with federal authorities about a person’s religion

However, many Californians are working to stem the tide of political insanity. Dawn Wildman, who is co-founder of a San Diego “Tea Party” group, is now the Director of the California Coalition for Policy Reform.  The group of citizen organizers are making plans to counter Sacramento policies that are heavily influenced by the elites in the Bay Area and Los Angeles.

“Our focus now is supporting good policies that will help both California and the nation,” Wildman said. “What California is now struggling with is the fact that it has been on an 8-year vacation from the enforcement of federal immigration laws. Our politicians are having a hissy-fit of historic proportions because the Trump administration is now demanding that the rules, established to protect American citizens, simply be followed.

Wildman has been shocked at the distortions and the drama.

“Our politicians have much more interest in protecting the people who broke the law getting into this country, then protecting the people they are charged to care for. And the tax threat is astonishing: If I tried that, because I didn’t like a particular rule, I would be facing charges of tax evasion. What exactly does Sacramento hope to accomplish on behalf of legal citizens?”

Wildman says that she has been working 18-hours days coordinating groups to push-back on the wild legislation being proposed in Sacramento in response to President Trump’s executive orders. Action items include email campaigns, phone calls, and publishing information on potential new rules.

“In 2009, we did townhalls with really good results,” noted Wildman.  “We also are going to be doing some direct citizen advocacy with Sacramento. Finally, we are going to do a lot of citizen-to-citizen outreach, so we make sure Californians understand exactly how Sacramento costs them, in terms of their tax dollars, whenever they pass legislation like the Sanctuary State acts.”

The most recent planning session included a Twitter campaign directly to President Donald Trump in support of his efforts to stem illegal immigration and fight terrorism.

“As if it isn’t embarrassing enough to be a Californian, our politicians’ antics are adding to our humiliation,” said Wildman.  “We want President Trump to know we are OK if you bring California to its knees.”

For the past 8 years, California’s progressive actions have been cloaked in federal agency advocacy. Now that Trump has turned the D.C. regulatory valve off, the collectivist, globalist goals of our state’s politicians and their bureaucratic supporters are being revealed.

Californians are now targeting the swamps of Sacramento for some tax-payer friendly draining, in an effort to make California American again.

Speaking of legal arguments, I believe that if California should really exit the country they will lose all legal claim to the Colorado River water coming in from out of state.

Things could get dry in the Golden State.

    Relating to water issues… didn’t they say no to a water desalination plant but continue to work on the high speed rail?

    Now that the winter rains and snow has “ended” the drought conditions for most of CA, will they still have the water restrictions in place? After rains refilled our lakes, my region maintained mandatory water rationing, at least the Level 1 rationing or odd-even watering.

    People seem to think that we get a lot of food from CA, but didn’t they restrict water in the east ag part of the state to protect the delta smelt? I also thought we are supposed to eat local, so I’m buying at local farmer’s markets as well as planting veggies myself. Heck, I can even get a decent bottle of local wine.

    Yup, things could get very dry in Cali.

    I am stating a legal fact. If California secedes they will lose legal claim to water from the USA.

      SoCA Conservative Mom in reply to MattMusson. | February 2, 2017 at 10:26 am

      It’s not that simple. Western states (not sure if it’s all of the states abutting the Colorado) follow Spanish law when it comes to riparian rights, not English common law. As such, no one entity along a river or body of water may use all the water that flows by or divert all/significant portion/more than they need.

      If I’m totally wrong here, please chime in.

        “Western states” don’t count in that scenario. Federal law controls.

        You are correct about Spanish Law. But IF California secedes they are no longer covered by the American judicial system. They will have no rights to the water. The law will only cover it up to the border.

        California will be forced to negotiate an international treaty to receive water from the US.

        They’re not going to secede. Not even Kalifornia is that stupid.

          hate to break this to you, but i can say, as a native, yes we are.

          didn’t use to be that way, but the massive influx of east coast liberals and illegals has overwhelmed the sane people, and frankly, i can’t think of ANY lieberal “brainstorm” so stupid these idiots wouldn’t vote for it…

          Tom Servo in reply to Dave. | February 2, 2017 at 1:12 pm

          I don’t doubt that Californians will vote for secession, but so what? Seriously. The worst that would happen is that the State Government will be suspended by Congress (easy to get a vote once the California reps are kicked out) and the Sacramento will be occupied by the 1st Armored Division, or the equivalent.

          What could anyone in California do about it, other than cry? They’re too stupid to realize you’ve got to have your own army, and that means a REAL army, if you want to pull something like this off – the Confederacy knew that.

          So, after that, some have suggested that California be broken up, but you don’t want to reward anyone there with more Senators. So you redraw the border to give NorCal to Oregon, give the Southern Strip going all the way to San Diego to Arizona, and give a big central strip, extending over to the Sierra Madre, to Nevada.

          Let the rump that’s left call itself New California, and after 15 years re-admit them to the union and let them have their own government again.

          THAT is what will happen if California goes the secession route, and there’s not a damn thing anyone there can do to stop it.

          Stu707 in reply to Dave. | February 2, 2017 at 2:23 pm

          Yes we are, Dave. I am sorry to say. One way or another we are headed for a catastrophe.

          SoCA Conservative Mom in reply to Dave. | February 2, 2017 at 2:31 pm

          @redc1c4 – latest polls put support for secession at 36% to 39%. People will sober and realize that secession is not in their best interests.

          JackRussellTerrierist in reply to Dave. | February 3, 2017 at 2:22 pm

          If CA secedes, there go their 55 electoral votes. There will never be another ‘rat in the White House. 🙂

    seems I read some where 60-70% of the snow drains into the ocean because they don’t want to build any reservoirs, something about a smelt.

    Arminius in reply to MattMusson. | February 2, 2017 at 9:03 pm

    We also keep the military bases just as we did GITMO following the commie revolution. Which can also make things awfully complicated for Kali. I-5 runs right through Camp Pendleton. Say goodbye being able to drive from SF to San Diego without taking the backroads. I’m not sure but I believe other bases could cause similar complications.

    And here’s a happy thought. We no longer have to care about noise restrictions to please the locals. Jets can take off in full burner at low altitude at two in the morning.

    What kali does get to keep is their share of the national debt. Pay up, suckers!

UnCivilServant | February 2, 2017 at 8:37 am

You have the great obsticle of the voters (dead or alive) still sending the same people back to the legislature year after year.

Good luck, California. You need it. I hope the non-SF non-LA population will finally begin to effectively fight back.

A Tea Party movement in California is as effective as Custer at Little Big Horn.

A majority of California WANTS to be as far left as they can. 30 some odd years of demonizing Republicans since Reagan has worked on an entire generation. You’re not getting these riots just because it’s Trump. It’s also them.

    American Human in reply to Crapgame13. | February 2, 2017 at 9:34 am

    I am a born and bred Easterner living in the Mid-Atlantic area. I don’t claim any clairvoyance in matters California however, I agree with you on this. I admire and support the CA Tea Party efforts, I hope they CAN make a difference, bless their pea-pickin little hearts, but doesn’t CA have a Democrat lock on their legislature as in fillibuster/veto/sanity proof?
    This seems to be a bit like fa_ting in a great hurricane.

    All righty then, I guess we will all just roll over and welcome our Sacramento overlords (sarcasm X 1,000,000).

    Minimally, thousands of Californians will be tweeting to President Trump, indicating we have his back for whatever decisions he makes regarding our state and the implementation of his robust, border-protection policies.

    Right now, Californians across this state are supporting Trump’s suggestion that he nix the funds to UC Berkeley, after that school decided its conservative students didn’t really need their First Amendment freedoms protected after all.

      Just a few Ideas on how to handle cities and states like this…

      1) Stop all funding directly related to law enforcement that you can.
      2) Slow walk all funding you can not stop.
      3) Restrict new funding in ways that targeted cities/states can not get a piece of that funding.
      4) Examine all legal paperwork for errors and hold up funds when the paperwork is not correct.
      5) Give all city/state policies the proverbial anal exam and take them to task and withhold funds for every issue you can find.
      6) Set up programs to help businesses to relocate out of targeted areas.
      7) revoke all waivers that allow them to do something different that Federal policy (EPA standards, etc)

        Audit all of the federal grants both for the proper use and documentation of all funds used. Recover any funds not properly expended and suspend payments.

        Concerning the research grants at the Universities, I’m sure that part of the funding is for building, equipment and other items. Lack of proper security at the schools puts those assets at risk. Poor use of funds.

        However, with the funding for law enforcement… if a city is following the laws and calling on ICE when necessary, I would NOT cut the funding, even perhaps increasing the funding.

          redc1c4 in reply to Liz. | February 2, 2017 at 12:27 pm

          just cancel all grants, period.

          these idiots think they give more $$ than they get?

          good: then you don’t need a dime from DC.

          Liz in reply to Liz. | February 2, 2017 at 4:57 pm

          My suggestion for auditing the existing grants for compliance is that if the use is not properly accounted for with sufficient documentation, then I would go after the university and the researchers for fraud.

          And if the current year is bad, then keep going back and expand the audit. One could grab a bunch of money that way!

      Time for a petition that divides the state into a state and the blue part which leaves the Union.

      American Human in reply to Leslie Eastman. | February 2, 2017 at 2:27 pm

      Ms Eastman, I did not intend to start a battle, you have more ink than I do (so to speak). My comment is a result of living in Maryland for 30+ years and seeing how ineffective ALL of my votes have been, how many letters I’ve written that have remained unopened, and how often I’m ignored by my Senators and Representatives. Here it is like spitting into a fan. I’m just thinking it is like that in CA as well.

      I don’t believe I encouraged anyone to stop pushing, talking, writing, raising and etc.

      I’m getting older and older by the day and I see so much of what was good and right in my long life getting shoved down the disposal. I hope I live long enough to see at least some things righted.

I hope they do secede. Then they can be crushed. Worst case, we get rid of cancers like Zuckerberg and the la Raza movement.

Totally agree with Rotten: Please California, secede. It will end its ceaseless nagging of the rest of us, with it’s air of superiority.

If they’re so much better, we shouldn’t anchor them down. Let them float their own way, and give the rest of us some peace.

MaggotAtBroadAndWall | February 2, 2017 at 10:12 am

I don’t live there but it looks to me like CA is no longer “self governed”. Citizen votes don’t seem to matter much. It looks to me like the public employee unions and the bureaucracy run the place, regardless of who is elected.

I’m rooting for Wildman and hopeful her efforts are not futile.

    Actually, judicial supremacy did California in. They voted many times to stop the illegal alien invasion, but items to do so they approved by vote were lied about by judges and called “unconstitutional.” So now we have mexifornia.

I really want an audit of the voter registration processing California, along with an explanation of how so very many people were turned into permanent mail-in voters, allegedly without notice or request of the individual, this election.

I doubt that all that many illegal aliens voted. I suspect the updated equivalent of ballot-box stuffing by the overwhelmingly dominant party.

My state, California, also has many legal immigrants who have arrived of late who have no idea what freedom and citizenship mean. Their kids go to public school, get indoctrinated, and all promptly vote Democrat. It’s very frustrating. Many of these folks have no real understanding that they are voting against their own interests. I don’t believe these legal immigrants are a lost cause. But, it will take time. I wish the rest of the U.S. saw the potential to save California and the people who have no idea how corrupt Sacramento is. California is better than their country of origin, so it is somewhat understandable, and The media has done a great job telling them who to vote for. We need to show them there’s actually a better choice.

California is what it is because the vast majority of its residents either wanted it to be this way or allowed it to become this way, for their own short term benefit.

The coastal areas, especially the Bay Area and L.A., have long attracted and encouraged fringe populations who embrace unsound social theories. It accelerated in the last third of the 20th Century. And, because of the fact that the majority of the population lives in these areas, a majority of the politicians in the state either share these people’s alternate societal values or are beholding to them for their positions.

But, the interior areas are not exempt from blame. The agricultural areas have long exploited the cheap labor provided by migrant workers, many of whom are here illegally. To this end, they resisted any active enforcement of immigration laws. this allowed for the settlement of the southern parts of the state by a very large population of Mexicans and their descendants, a significant number of whom are in this country illegally.

There is a third factor to the downfall of California, as a stable state. That is the reluctance of the coastal and state governments to address criminal activity in the large urban/suburban areas. Rather than aggressively address the problem of gangs and sin crime [most notably drugs] these areas adopted a policy of attempting to buy off the the lower economic classes while ignoring the movers and shakers who were involved.

Now, the state faces bankruptcy and has no money, nor the will, to drain the swamp that it has created. It will take a catastrophe to change the state in any meaningful way. It has become so bad, that the coastal cities of both Oregon and Washington are becoming mirror images of the California coastal cities. It is possible that the lunatics living in these areas will become so disruptive and violent, due to their hatred for Trump, that saner populations will banish them. The problem is, that they have nowhere to go, where they would not cause the same type of disruption.

Prop 187 was what was needed to save this state. It passed in a landslide only to be overturned by the judiciary. The demographics have been changed so drastically since then that I’m not sure California can be salvaged.

The coastal enclaves rule this state with an iron fist, see last night in Berkeley where a large violent mob was well organized and protected by the police. See any arrests?
The only way CA will change direction is a fiscal collapse.
I and many supporters of President Trump are intimidated from expressing support at the workplace or in any public media. Threats, vandalism and boycotts are sure to come if my views become known. Not too far from this state of affairs to a totalitarian state in SacTown.

    Yes, what richardb said. My family members and I have become adept at keeping our political views quiet so that we can function outside of our home. (Although I have heard rumors of conservatives being “outed” because they don’t condemn Pres. Trump strongly enough.) Following the election my grandchildren were cautioned not to tell anyone who their parents voted for FOR THEIR OWN SAFETY. Extreme? It takes just one crazy person. I have no hope for my home state.

Leslie, since I live in the 92009 bubble, I will check out your links to see what might be useful to get involved in. I’ve got 3 years left before I leave for good, and I might enjoy a parting shot at Sacremento.

Enjoy Reconstruction!

This state is in such a mess. Our law makers wanted to extend free healthcare to the undocumented and then when this story came out they had to realize their mistake and put that idea on hold.
