Calexit Craziness
National Review Online, by Kevin D. Williamson

The Irish Republican Socialist party and Sinn Fein still dream of a unified Irish republic. The Catalan Solidarity for Independence coalition would see the Estelada flag raised over an independent Estat Català, and there are independence-minded movements as far-flung as the western Sahara. The Uhuru Movement is a kind of separatist movement standing on its head, looking to transcend national borders (with their colonial histories) and unite African people in a single African identity. The United States has the Texas Nationalist Movement hoping to restore the Republic of Texas, and somewhere out there is a very committed fellow who believes

A free and independent California? Are you kidding me? Try and expensive and broke up past its eyeballs California. Not at all viable unless they crawl to China to assume their debt.

How about the other 49 states declaring independence from California? Of course there will be refugees from the "interior" where surprise surprise many genuine patriot Americans live. We´ll be so busy assimilating them we´ll need to cut off Syrians and Somalis, aww. And of course we´ll need a bigger wall but count me in.

It appears that this farce is going to get more blog, article, and newsprint, but in the end will go nowhere. It makes much more sense for Kalifornia to split into the Coastal Liberal Creepozoid Party, and the more conservative inland. Also, El Rushbo nailed it the other day. The democRATS will never let FIFTY electoral votes, 50 automatic democRAT electoral votes, leave the USA.

Everyone said Trump was impossible too. I think this should be encouraged. The national flag could be a pair of raggedy 30 inch waist jeans with a grey pony tail tassel. Income tax rate would be 100%, with all non-white and non-producers getting a guaranteed income for life. There could be border guards that check you for drugs, and if you dont have any they´d give you some.
Any weird sport performed in spandex would land one a national hero medal. Sunglasses would be mandatory 24 hours a day and everyone would be required to identify as a trans-something.

I don´t know why columnists waste time writing about this farce. California isn´t going anywhere for the simple fact the US government won´t allow it to go anywhere. The USA is not going to voluntarily give up 2/3 of its western coastline regardless of what Californians want. That would be strategic suicide for the country. Apart from that the military has numerous critically important military bases located throughout the state. Does anyone seriously think that the Feds will just walk away from those because a bunch of nutjobs are unhappy with the current state of affairs? The whole thing is just ridiculous and not worthy of attention.

I don´t think that this has any legs. I´m a life long Californian, and not only do I want to stay in the U.S., everybody I know wants to stay as well. If there was to be a vote, I doubt that more than 20% of the population would vote to leave. Despite our reputation, Californian is filled with normal, non flaky citizens who work at jobs, raise their families, pay their taxes, and vote like regular citizens. Don´t listen to the few leftist loudmouths who want to leave the U.S.

While California cannot secede, there is precedent for a portion of a state to break away and form a new one. West Virginia split from Virginia, and Maine was once part of Massachusetts. And the Dakota Territory somehow split to form two sparsely populated states.

How Melania Became

It seems like only yesterday Melania Trump was being ridiculed for “borrowing” remarks from her predecessor, Michelle Obama, while Ivanka Trump was being touted as the calm, classy yin to her father’s never calm, not so classy yang. But what a difference 100 days can make. While Ivanka Trump and her business ventures have become yet another ethical distraction in an administration plagued by them, Melania Trump has emerged as…well, a surprisingly calm, classy counterbalance to her husband and those he surrounds himself with, including her stepdaughter. It wasn’t supposed to be this way. During the presidential campaign the commonly

So we don´t even need a wall. We just needed to let everybody know they´re not going to take advantage of us anymore. And believe me, they know it.

The United Nations warned the Trump administration earlier this year that repealing ObamaCare without providing an adequate replacement would be a violation of multiple international laws, according to a new report. Though the Trump administration is likely to ignore the U.N. warning, The Washington Post reported the Office of the U.N. High Commission on Human Rights in Geneva sent an "urgent appeal" on Feb 2. The Post reported that the confidential, five-page memo cautioned that the repeal of the Affordable Care Act would put the U.S. “at odds with its international obligations.” The warning was sent to the State Department and reportedly said

Are you freaking kidding me? Thirteen-term Democratic congresswoman Maxine Waters, Beltway barnacle permanently affixed to USS Government, is now the fresh-faced “rock star” of the Democratic party. “Auntie Maxine” is stoking the resistance, inspiring Millennials, combating hate, crusading against corruption, and invoking the counterinsurgent cry to “stay woke!” I do not have enough guffaws to give. This new spokesmodel for civility and clean government has stoked division and exploited taxpayers for decades. Change agent?

We call it Kultursmo, it being that collection of attitudes, ideas, tastes, and personages that are polluted by the politics of the left and that predominate on both coasts. And who are we? We are the freethinkers who are immune to the Kultursmog by virtue of our natural skepticism and reliance on empiricism, which is to say, reliance on evidence. Thus we understand and generally accept that Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election. We also accept that Hillary Clinton, assisted by her hubby and their consultants, lost the election.

Fifty-five years ago, the U.S. tested a nuclear weapon high above the atmosphere over the Pacific. At the time, my father -- a nuclear weapons engineer -- was listening on our ham radio. When the device exploded, we heard nothing in Albuquerque. But, in Honolulu, 1000 miles from the detonation, the sky turned red as streetlights and telephones went out. EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) effects from the distant nuclear explosion had struck. Today we hear concern that cities might be destroyed by North Korean nuclear tipped missiles, but Starfish Prime should alert us to a more imminent danger: EMP. North Korea can launch

Fox News operatives broke into her personal computer, planted key-logging and other surveillance software on it and then used the information “to intimidate, terrorize and crush her career through an endless stream of lewd, offensive and career-damaging social media posts, blog entries and commentary,” Tantaros claims in the lawsuit. “The outlandish merges with reality in the world of Fox News,” she

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump stepped back Monday from demanding a down payment for his border wall in must-past spending legislation, potentially removing a major obstacle to a bipartisan deal just days ahead of a government shutdown deadline. Trump told a gathering of around 20 conservative media reporters Monday evening that he would be willing to return to the wall funding issue in September, according to two people who were in the room. They spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the get-together, which was not originally intended to be on the record. The border wall money is fiercely opposed by Democrats,

DALLAS – The woman seen sobbing in a viral video after an American Airlines flight attendant took away her stroller now has a lawyer — the same attorney representing a man dragged off a United Express flight earlier this month. The Chicago lawyer, Thomas Demetrio, says the American flight attendant was "out of control" and nearly hit one of the woman´s two young children with the stroller. An American Airlines spokesman said Monday that the company has been in contact with the woman and refunded her tickets and upgraded her to first class for the rest of her trip to Argentina.

Worried the term “female genital mutilation” might sharpen the divide between those who oppose brutally cutting away a little girl’s genitalia to deprive her of sexual pleasure and those who practice the “rite,” one New York Times editor instead refers to the ritual as “genital cutting.” “There’s a gulf between the Western (and some African) advocates who campaign against the practice and the people who follow the rite, and I felt the language used widened that chasm,” NYT science and health editor Celia Dugger explained Friday. She also said the widely used term (FGM) is “culturally loaded” in the explanation, which

Over the past few days, Mrs. Gallmann, one of Kenya’s most famous conservationists and the author of the best-selling book “I Dreamed of Africa,” sent me a flurry of increasingly distressed text messages. Heavily armed pastoralists had invaded her ranch in northern Kenya and were edging closer and closer to her house. “Pokot militia openly carrying firearms,” she wrote in one message. (The Pokot are an ethnic group in northern Kenya.) “Not just herders. Group of armed men without livestock. 13 firearm spotted.”

France’s first-round election results on Sunday were a welcome non-surprise: Right-wing nationalist and Putin pal Marine Le Pen did make the second round, but behind political novice but familiar center-left face Emmanuel Macron, whom she’ll face in a May runoff. Even better, their other competitors from France’s established center-left and center-right parties came out quickly to endorse Macron. The best news of the day, though, is that political observers of a liberal, non-nationalist bent can comfortably retain their basic understandings about how France, elections, and 21st-century democracy all work. They can also, at least temporarily, shelve some fundamental doubts about

Although President Donald J.

That´s about 877 abortions per day, 36 per hour, or 1 every two minutes.
