Referendum To Split California Into 3
States Gets On Ballot. Here´s What The
New Californias Would Look Like.

Daily Wire, by James Barrett

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 6/13/2018 10:57:19 AM

A new proposal to break up California into three states received enough signatures on Tuesday to make it onto the November 6 ballot. Now all it takes is a majority of California voters supporting it to start dismantling the country´s most populous, wealthy and radical state. The Los Angeles Times provides some more details on what would be "the first division of an existing U.S. state since the creation of West Virginia in 1863": If a majority of voters who cast ballots agree, a long and contentious process would begin for three separate states to take the place of California,

The part that would still be ´´California´´ under this scheme should, instead, be called ´´North Tijuana.´´

Draw a line west of Fresno from north to south, cut it away from the rest and let it float out to sea. I live just east of Fresno and would like some beach front property.
We´d get rid of L.A. , holly weird , silicone valley , and most especially the home of the feces and needle strewn haven known as San Francisco.

This looks like a good proposal. I cannot see anything parts of rural Ca. have in common with the leftist part of the state. I do not live there. If I did, I would vote to jettison Sacramento.

Exactly #4. This proposal comes from Silicon Valley. The more conservative parts of the state in the north gets diluted and overwhelmed by the Bay Area. Central Valley conservatives get diluted by the large number of Hispanics.

This scheme flips the US Senate for years.

I don’t trust the west coast rats. This could flip the senate. I want Calimehico to secede. My wish would be for all the left coast to leave the protection of America. Go back to your homeland Mexico. Go to your corruption, your language,your phony history, and become the biggest drug infested ,sex trafficking region to rival Thailand. I would plant the new volunteer military to protect that border and shoot to kill every illegal who comes within 100 feet of the fence. I can dream can’t I ?

I´m not sure about this, especially from a federal perspective. It has some disruption value, but it does look like "California" and "Northern California" would likely be blue. "Southern California" might be red, at least for presidential and governor votes, not sure about Senate and down-ballot state offices.

I´m in the OC, which is part of "Southern California". From a strictly local perspective, I like the idea of splitting off from LA, SF and the greater bay area.

This is not a split designed to give power to non-Leftist voters. The entire coastal region should have been one of the sections. But the way this is being done will do nothing but hand at least 2, possibly 4 additional senators to the Democrats. And the people with sense will still be taxed to ruin and culturally dragged through the mud by the elitist Leftist political leaders in SF and LA. Also, if you are familiar with the 20th Century history of the Los Angeles region, it has gone from typical suburban American to sizable majority Hispanic. Once beautiful San Francisco has gone from bohemian/arts to a dirty dangerous place with homeless people almost everywhere.

"Silicone valley" is the part of L.A. where breast implants are rife. And if any place deserves to be called "Tijuana Norte" it´s San Diego County, more than the central coast.

I´d nitpick those, but generally agree with most of the other Ldotter comments.

What would it do to electoral votes, and Congressional seats? Not sure we can presume they would remain the same. Who would be in charge of setting this up? A bunch of lefties? It already looks like a bunch of lefties have had a hand in it. Considering it would have nationwide impact, there should be some level of federal approval.

If you see Democrats happy about this idea, and pushing for it, then you know it wouldn´t be good for GOP and future elections.

It would certainly put the idea of how gerrymandered the CA districts currently are done, into a whole new process.

The democrats likely wouldn´t have the space to draw as favorable districts by diluting the votes of others.

It would also remove 54 automatic electoral votes going to democrats. Each state should then allow winner in each district to be allocated accordingly, not winner-take-all.

The hard part will be how to allocate funds that pay benefits and pensions for state workers.

To jettison LA county from NoCal and SoCal would be a huge, as what would be called California is the most blue area of CA.

Meaningless. Can´t be done, won´t be done, at least as far as representation at the Federal level. I suppose the state could vote to divide the CA into Kingdoms and govern with Kings, Queens and Knights, but THEY can´t decide on their own to create new ´states.´ Otherwise why not create 100 new CA ´states.´ and rule the rest of us? This new media and poorly educated public under the age of 50 will believe anything.

A better division plan:

From LA to Tiburon, 60 miles east to west is one state. The rest break into north and south. That way the Democrats get 2 senators and the GOP gets 4.

Or, keep north and south as one state giving the dems 2 and the GOP 2.

It´s been a while since I read the Constitution. But don´t states have to apply for admission to the Union? What´s to prevent Tennessee from splitting into 3 state: East Tenn, Middle Tenn, and West Tenn? In the past it was proposed that New York City become a separate state. Currently we have 50 states and 100 senators. That´s easy to remember. File it with DC´s proposal to become a state.

Let them split as their whims direct. But, the new entities become Territories, not States. Representation is observer status only. See how it all settles out after 20 years, then consider Statehood for one, two or all three. Congress can do all of this.

On Friday, CNBC’s Jane Wells appeared on a Fox affiliate in Los Angeles, and touted the Trump economy, noting that if things continue to go the way they’re going, the president may well be re-elected in 2020. However, anchor Elex Michaelson and two panel members, Gianno Caldwell and Jessica Levinson, challenged Wells on Trump as it pertains to "racism."

There were large numbers of people coming in. The Obama administration was trying to keep this quiet,” the Texas Democrat told CNN’s Fredricka Whitfield on Saturday.

Fewer people are celebrating Father’s Day than ever before, a fact that may have less to do with the nature of the holiday than it does with the nature of American families. A U.S. Census Bureau study found that the percentage of children living in single-parent households increased from 12 percent in 1960 to 31 percent in 2016. During that same timeframe, “the percentage of children living with only their mother nearly tripled.” These numbers are sobering because according to recent studies, kids who lack an engaged father (and so may be less likely to observe Father’s Day) are also

President Donald Trump will meet with House GOP legislators on Tuesday to talk about the two pending amnesty bills in the House, White House officials say. Trump will likely use the meeting to show legislators that he is willing to take the political gamble of supporting the two bills, both of which combine sweeping changes in immigration laws plus cuts to immigration numbers with an unpopular amnesty. The first bill offers work-permits for 700,000 illegals, and the so-called “moderate” bill offers amnesty to a population at least 1.8 million illegals plus green cards for a few hundred thousand foreign guest-workers.

She bemoaned the horrible situation that people walking into the amphitheater didn´t feel like they "belonged." The problem cried out for a solution. So she moved several portraits of prominent white doctors in order to be more diverse and inclusive. Problem solved?

The headline appealed to the emotions of the reader and the parental instinct of most people. Who would condone the separation of children from their parents? The American government, that´s who; it not only condones the removal of children from their parents - it fosters it. The government has routinely taken children from their parents for the past 50 years; not in increments of 2,000 as indicated in the tabloid, but by the millions.

Janique Walker knows the cost of a split second. Her younger brother, 17-year-old Charles Macklin, was killed while trying to steal a Jeep from a Chicago fire lieutenant on the West Side last August. The lieutenant had left the Jeep running, and Macklin jumped behind the wheel. The lieutenant ran in front of the Jeep and shouted, “Get out,” according to a police report. When Macklin began pulling away, the lieutenant drew his gun and fired through the open driver’s side window, hitting the teen in the chest.

The state of Illinois has approved $224 million to pay for street and transportation projects in Chicago´s South Side neighborhood around the Obama Presidential Center site, $199 million of which will fall directly on the shoulders of Illinois taxpayers. Gov. Bruce Rauner signed into law the legislature´s budget on June 4, which included $174 million for road work in and around Jackson Park — where the 235-foot-tall building would be located — and another $50 million to renovate an above-ground rail stop two miles away. “Bringing the Obama Presidential Center to Chicago took leadership and vision, and we are gratified that our

You wonder why Fox News is Number One in cable?

Take this week´s Singapore Summit. No matter what President Trump accomplished in Singapore in his face-to-face meeting with North Korea´s Kim Jong Un, for Joe, Mika and their fellow foreign policy experts in the media, it was not enough.

Christian leaders across the country have taken issue with Attorney General Jeff Session´s usage of the Bible as justification of his policy that is separating thousand of immigrant families at the border. Sessions cited Romans 13 to attempt to justify how separating families was ordained by God because ´orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves and protect the weak and lawful.´ For religious leaders who still weren´t pleased with his usage of scripture, he offered them to ´speak up strongly to urge anyone who would come here to apply lawfully, to wait their turn and not violate the law.´
