Rural California wants a
divorce from rich California

USA Today, by Glenn Reynolds

We’re starting to hear more about secession. Not the perennial post-election calls of losing parties to secede from a nation controlled by the opposition, but a growing movement for secession from states, with the parts of states (sometimes geographically very large parts of states) wanting to separate from the population-dense urban areas that essentially control state decision-making. Feeling ignored, put-upon, and mistreated, state secessionists want to take their fate into their own hands. At present, there’s little prospect of adding stars to the American flag, but these movements do indicate a widespread sense of dissatisfaction among (mostly rural) populations who

In western Maryland, where I live, people talk about secession.

I don´t think I agree with the author´s suggested remedy but at least he has put some thought into it.

Northern Cali and Southern Oregon have long wanted to separate and become their own state. Given the idiots that run both state legislatures, I cannot blame them.

Northern Cali and Southern Oregon have not been served well politically for a long time. Perhaps it is time to take another look at several of the states and whether or not they should be split and rejoined.

Eastern Oregon is another that would love to split from the Western half liberals.

So poor California wants a divorce from rich California.

Your request for a separation is denied. Rich CA needs a place far away from their gated communities and armed guards to deposit all their illegal immigrants... and you´re it.

My suggestion is to continue to grow and sell great marijuana. (at least until rich CA takes it back) and continue to be the adopted step child of rich CA.

Reply #10 is right on point. In New York State voter control comes from approx 10%-15% of the State geographically, that is , Westchester County South through Long Island. The majority of the rest of the State is Conservative, but we may as well stay home, as vote. New York City itself has a greater population than the rest of the state North of Westchester County. Most of us up here detest out Senators, who are as useless as ( take your pick ). (However, to be honest , the Dem Governor does send help to whichever part of the State requires it. )

How is it that the big cities are "rich"?
Could it be that taxes are imposed on nearly self-sufficient regions who get virtually no services and who send in their dough to flow to the vast welfare class inhabiting LA and SF?

What a horrid thing to say #14. I get so tired of everyone wishing we would fall into the ocean or get blown up, whatever. I´d like the state split just to avoid remarks like this. There are many wonderful conservatives in CA, but Sacramento has ruined our state. It could happen to you so you might want to step off of that high horse and think how you would feel. We were once a conservative state, not that long ago. It COULD happen in the state where you live....

The Black Book of the American Left, Volume IX: Ruling Ideas, by David Horowitz, Second Thoughts Books, Los Angeles, April 10, 2018 (338 pages, $27.99, hardcover) Unlike Columbia president Nicholas Butler, who, when asked around 1913 if he had seen Progressive historian Charles Beard´s last book, responded, "I hope so!," I myself won´t be happy to think that Volume 9 of The Black Book of the American Left, Ruling Ideas may be David Horowitz´s final salvo directed at the political left.

How Immigration Officials Cooked the

Daily Signal, by Mark Metcalf    Original Article

A recent Justice Department report on U.S. immigration courts provides a rare glimpse into the difficulties faced by the Trump administration as it repairs the damages inflicted on these tribunals over the last 20 years. But give credit to the courts’ new executive, James McHenry. Early on, he identified the need for transparency and has made accurate disclosure of court business one of his agency’s highest priorities. Candor, if not reform, demands no less. It’s a good start for an executive whose predecessors often avoided—and sometimes denied—the truth about the courts’ troubling dynamics. Yet the courts limped along, their annual reports

Our friend Howard Root attended the Trump rally in Duluth last night. This is his (fantastic) report along with photos he took at the event (at the top and bottom below): When I arrived at 4:00 p.m., the line for admission was at least a half mile long. People had been lining up since before 10:00 a.m., with the line snaking through a glass skyway where the afternoon sun had raised the temperature to over 100. I’ve seen shorter lines for Springsteen tickets, yet everyone was exceptionally polite. I only saw one protester on the walk over. He was standing on

At the same time, we wonder what the future holds for our case, our lost business, and our family. Ours may be, as Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote, the case that allows “further elaboration in the courts.” And we are encouraged to know that seven justices of the

No fewer than 60 organizations branded "hate groups" or otherwise attacked by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) are considering legal action against the left-wing smear factory, a Christian legal nonprofit leader confirmed to PJ Media on Tuesday. He suggested that the $3 million settlement and apology the SPLC gave to Maajid Nawaz and his Quilliam Foundation on Monday would encourage further legal action.

Yesterday on Face the Nation, I responded to questions about the migrant separations from their children under the Trump Administration’s policy announced last month by trying to shift the focus to what drives these migrations in the first place – something that can’t be addressed by a simple band-aid piece of legislation paving the way for more lax border requirements. (Snip) Why do we have the biggest month to month increase between February and March that we’ve seen since 2011? “And the answer to that is the activity of the Mexican cartels, who use these migrants as essentially a distraction

“Are you an American or not?” It’s a simple question, one that every U.S. census should include, especially when the survey already contains nonsensical and intrusive inquiries into one’s ethnic DNA composition and whether one co-habits with someone of the opposite sex or one’s own. Whether you are a citizen or not is a valid question in a civic-minded constitutional democracy. Whether your parents are ethnic Chinese born in Peru or you are a nonpracticing heterosexual, not so much. And yet, the inclusion of a citizenship question and other changes rightly being made by the Trump administration to the 2020 census caused a

Politics has a way of turning everything upside down. Flit over to Twitter and the same government media echo chamber that was loudly defending the Iran deal is concern trolling about strong inspections of North Korea’s nuclear program and worrying that President Trump’s suspension of military exercises is far too great of a concession to the tiny tyrant. The clever ones ask, “What’s the difference between the Iran deal and the North Korean negotiations”? Isn’t Trump’s stated willingness to meet with dictators a lot like Obama’s no preconditions pledge? And then there are the trade wars. What is he thinking by upsetting the

Over the last century, the world has witnessed the slow but steady depoliticization of America and Western Europe in favor of the rule of the apolitical “expert.” The great challenge of our era is to foster the return of actual political life between the people and their elected officials. President Trump’s summit with Kim Jong-un successfully served this purpose. One must jettison the abstractions of modern intellectuals in order to make politics possible again. Perhaps nowhere is this truer than on matters of foreign policy. As Claremont Institute Senior Fellow Angelo Codevilla has written (No Victory, No Peace), as our increasingly

Below I repost Uwe Parpart´s Asia Times analysis of the Trump-Kim summit in Singapore. Liberal media is aghast at the president´s rough handling of Canadian boy-band frontman Justin Trudeau, and his confrontational approach overall at the Group of Seven summit. When the dust settles, though, Trump may accomplish what eluded Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama: a stabler and safer world without the need for millions of American boots on the ground. He well may go down in history as one of our great foreign policy presidents.

An op-ed in Friday’s Washington Post by the long-time political pundit and conservative calls for voters to end the “carnage of Republican misrule” in Washington. Mr. Will claimed the “most telegenic example” of a need to oust Republicans exists with the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy regarding illegal immigrants along the U.S. southern border. “The Republican-controlled Congress, which waited for Trump to undo by unilateral decree the border folly they could have prevented by actually legislating, is an advertisement for the unimportance of

Taxes: Whatever you think about the issue of taxing internet sales, the simple fact is that the Supreme Court has just guaranteed that people across the country will now be paying more in state taxes. It´s hard for us to see how this is good news. In its 5-4 decision on South Dakota v. Wayfair, the court overturned two previous rulings that prevented states from taxing sales of out-of-state companies. That meant a catalog company based in Maine didn´t have to navigate 45 state sales-tax laws to figure out how much each customer owed, and then remit that money to the

How´s this for sneaky? Sen. John McCain, not too long after seeking conservative and Republican votes in his failed 2008 bid for the presidency, went right after those same conservative voters without telling them, by egging on the IRS to ruin them. It´s the sort of political back-stabbing that defies belief, taking an active role in destroying the Tea Party, which was an authentic grassroots movement of local groups calling for smaller government. But sure enough, Judicial Watch has found McCain´s central role right there in the documents: Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen.
