Beware: Proposal to split California into 3 will create 3 liberal states!

A proposal to split California into three states will be on the ballot this November.

Backers of CAL 3, led by Silicon Valley venture capitalist Tim Draper, collected and delivered 600,000 signatures to California Secretary of State Alex Padilla’s Office, surpassing the 365,000 required by law to qualify for the ballot.

The proposal is to split California into these three new states:

  1. Northern California
  2. California
  3. Southern California

Conservatives should vote “No” for this reason: Instead of giving Conservatives a voice in state government, CAL 3 will make things worse because the way the proposed state lines are drawn will create two, if not three, Democrat-dominant states.

As things are today, California’s one-party Democrat government is the result of the state’s pattern of population distribution, wherein heavily-populated “liberal” metropolitan cities on the coast determine the outcome of elections. Instead of creating a new state of those “liberal” coastal cities, CAL 3 distributes the “liberal” cities to each of the three new states, thereby ensuring that they will dominate election outcomes in the new states.

Here’s the map of the proposed CAL 3:

Note that:

  1. Northern California will contain these big cities:
    1. San Francisco: the 13th most populous city in the U.S., with a population of 884,363 in 2017.
    2. San Jose: the 10th most populous city in the U.S., with a population of 1,035,317 in 2017.
    3. Sacramento: the state capital; 35th largest city in the U.S., with a population of 501,334 in 2018.
  2. California will contain these big cities:
    1. Los Angeles: the 2nd largest city in the U.S. (after New York), with a population estimated at 3.98 million.
    2. Santa Barbara: with a population of 91,196 in 2014.
    3. Long Beach: the 39th largest city in the U.S., with a population of 462,257 in 2010.
  3. Southern California will contain these big cities:
    1. San Diego: the 8th largest city in the U.S., with a population of 1,419,516 in 2017.
    2. Anaheim: the 10th largest city in California, with a  population of 336,265 in 2010.

In the 2016 presidential election, California voted:

  • Hillary Clinton: 61.6%
  • Donald Trump: 32.8%

Here’s a map of how California voted in the 2016 presidential election

Now let’s compare California’s 2016 election results map with a map of CAL 3:

To conclude, the proposed CAL 3 will only split “liberal” California into three “liberal” states. Each of the three states will get to send two senators each to the U.S. Senate, as well as representatives to the House of Representatives. Since each new California state will be dominated by “liberal” heavily-populated cities, that means we’ll end up having even more Democrats elected to both houses of Congress.

Vote “No” on CAL 3 !!!

30 years ago, Jacob Rothschild predicted a global currency by 2018

On March 6, 1991, in a speech to Congress then-President George H. W Bush famously and very prematurely declared the beginning of a “new world order” following the Gulf War — the U.S.-led expulsion of Iraqi forces from Kuwait:

“Now, we can see a new world coming into view. A world in which there is the very real prospect of a new world order…. A world where the United Nations, freed from cold war stalemate, is poised to fulfill the historic vision of its founders. A world in which freedom and respect for human rights find a home among all nations.”

Three years before in 1988, in an essay in The Economist (which is partly owned by the Rothschild family), Lord Jacob Rothschild, now 82, predicted that in 2018 the world would be united under a single currency, the phoenix.

Under the global monetary union, called the “phoenix zone,” administered by a global central bank, national economic boundaries would dissolve. “Tight constraints” would be imposed on national governments, and there would be no national monetary policy. In effect, nation-states would lose their economic sovereignty, supplanted by a global government — a new world order — in fact if not in name.

Thanks to The Free Thought Project, below is an excerpt from Jacob Rothschild’s article, “Ready for the Phoenix,” The Economist, January 9, 1988, pp. 9-10.

Ready for the Phoenix

Thirty years from now, Americans, Japanese, Europeans, and people in many other rich countries, and some relatively poor ones will probably be paying for their shopping with the same currency. Prices will be quoted not in dollars, yen or D-marks but in, let’s say, the phoenix. The phoenix will be favoured by companies and shoppers because it will be more convenient than today’s national currencies, which by then will seem a quaint cause of much disruption to economic life in the last twentieth century.

At the beginning of 1988 this appears an outlandish prediction. Proposals for eventual monetary union proliferated five and ten years ago, but they hardly envisaged the setbacks of 1987. The governments of the big economies tried to move an inch or two towards a more managed system of exchange rates – a logical preliminary, it might seem, to radical monetary reform. For lack of co-operation in their underlying economic policies they bungled it horribly, and provoked the rise in interest rates that brought on the stock market crash of October. These events have chastened exchange-rate reformers. The market crash taught them that the pretence of policy co-operation can be worse than nothing, and that until real co-operation is feasible (i.e., until governments surrender some economic sovereignty) further attempts to peg currencies will flounder.

The New World Economy

The biggest change in the world economy since the early 1970’s is that flows of money have replaced trade in goods as the force that drives exchange rates. as a result of the relentless integration of the world’s financial markets, differences in national economic policies can disturb interest rates (or expectations of future interest rates) only slightly, yet still call forth huge transfers of financial assets from one country to another. These transfers swamp the flow of trade revenues in their effect on the demand and supply for different currencies, and hence in their effect on exchange rates. As telecommunications technology continues to advance, these transactions will be cheaper and faster still. With unco-ordinated economic policies, currencies can get only more volatile.…

In all these ways national economic boundaries are slowly dissolving. As the trend continues, the appeal of a currency union across at least the main industrial countries will seem irresistible to everybody except foreign-exchange traders and governments.In the phoenix zone, economic adjustment to shifts in relative prices would happen smoothly and automatically, rather as it does today between different regions within large economies (a brief on pages 74-75 explains how.) The absence of all currency risk would spur trade, investment and employment.

The phoenix zone would impose tight constraints on national governments. There would be no such thing, for instance, as a national monetary policy. The world phoenix supply would be fixed by a new central bank, descended perhaps from the IMF. The world inflation rate – and hence, within narrow margins, each national inflation rate- would be in its charge. Each country could use taxes and public spending to offset temporary falls in demand, but it would have to borrow rather than print money to finance its budget deficit. With no recourse to the inflation tax, governments and their creditors would be forced to judge their borrowing and lending plans more carefully than they do today. This means a big loss of economic sovereignty, but the trends that make the phoenix so appealing are taking that sovereignty away in any case. Even in a world of more-or-less floating exchange rates, individual governments have seen their policy independence checked by an unfriendly outside world.

As the next century approaches, the natural forces that are pushing the world towards economic integration will offer governments a broad choice. They can go with the flow, or they can build barricades. Preparing the way for the phoenix will mean fewer pretended agreements on policy and more real ones. It will mean allowing and then actively promoting the private-sector use of an international money alongside existing national monies. That would let people vote with their wallets for the eventual move to full currency union. The phoenix would probably start as a cocktail of national currencies, just as the Special Drawing Right is today. In time, though, its value against national currencies would cease to matter, because people would choose it for its convenience and the stability of its purchasing power.…

The alternative – to preserve policymaking autonomy- would involve a new proliferation of truly draconian controls on trade and capital flows. This course offers governments a splendid time. They could manage exchange-rate movements, deploy monetary and fiscal policy without inhibition, and tackle the resulting bursts of inflation with prices and incomes polices. It is a growth-crippling prospect. Pencil in the phoenix for around 2018, and welcome it when it comes.

Writing for The Free Thought Project, Jay Syrmopoulos points out:

[I]t must be noted that the creation of a global currency would give an inordinate amount of geopolitical capital to unelected international bankers, and subsequently take power away from the citizens of each nation and their respective governmental representatives….

Control over a nation’s money supply is, for all intents and purposes, the lifeblood of a state’s sovereignty – without this independence, the state only exists in name but is subservient to supranational powers whose interests lie outside of domestic and national political/economic concerns.

“Give me control of a nation’s money supply, and I care not who makes its laws,” said Mayer Amschel Rothschild, founder of the Rothschild banking dynasty.

Although the Rothschild family now generally keep a very low public profile, they still have significant business operations across a wide spectrum of sectors. While you may not find any one particular Rothschild on the Forbes’ most rich list, the family is estimated to control $1 trillion dollars in assets across the globe, thus having a strong voice across the geopolitical spectrum that many perceive as a hidden hand manipulating events silently from behind a veil of secrecy and silence.

Of course, since it is 2018, we now know that Jacob Rothschild’s prediction of 30 years ago did not come true, thanks to the Revolt of the Deplorables who, in 2016, elected a man named Donald Trump to the U.S. presidency, whose campaign promise is to “make America great again” by putting America’s national interests first, which got him eternal enmity from the globalists.

Trump did exactly that in the just-concluded G-7 Summit in Toronto, Canada, in which he fought for fairer trade agreements for the United States, instead of continue the massive trade imbalances and deficits of previous U.S. presidents — to howls from our supposed French, German and Canadian “allies”.

See “Trump won’t endorse G7 statement,” New York Post, June 9, 2018.

God bless President Trump, the wrench in the Rothschilds’ and other globalists’ machinations for a one-world government!

George Soros laments ‘Everything that could go wrong, has gone wrong’

What wonderful news to begin our Sunday!

In an interview with The Washington Post published yesterday, referring to the rise of President Trump and anti-establishment parties across the globe, George Soros lamented that “everything that could go wrong, has gone wrong.”

He said he had not expected Trump to be elected President: “Apparently, I was living in my own bubble.”

The evil international financier who’d made his billions by speculating against currencies — which is parasitic as currency-speculation produces neither goods nor services — also made the bizarre claim that President Trump would be “willing to destroy the world.”

Adding to Soros’ distress is the fact that, despite his pumping of $millions into District Attorney races, in California voters rejected every one of his DA candidates.

Hollyweird tries another all-female lead cast movie with “Ocean’s 8”

Back in 2016 Hollywood thought it would be a good idea to remake Ghostbusters, but with an all female cast. The movie’s budget was $144 million (that doesn’t include promo costs) and its domestic total gross was $128,350,574.

The movie was mostly panned by audience and critics, receiving a 3.1/5 rating (52% like on audience score) on Rotten Tomatoes.

Now Hollywood is reviving the “Oceans” movie franchise with an all-female cast for Ocean’s 8. About the movie (which opens June 8), from Wikipedia:

“Ocean’s 8 is a 2018 American heist comedy film directed by Gary Ross and written by Ross and Olivia Milch. The film is a spin-off of Steven Soderbergh‘s Ocean’s trilogy and features an ensemble cast, including Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna, and Helena Bonham Carter. The plot follows a group of women, led by the estranged sister of Danny Ocean, who plan on robbing the Met Gala.”

About some of the actresses in this movie:

Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett are into “penis facials.”

From Dr. Eowyn’s postHollyweirdos get penis facials from Korean baby foreskins” in April:

“Actress Cate Blanchett, 48, recently revealed that she and Sandra Bullock, 53, got the unusual treatment that is supposed to help women look more youthful. Blanchett said:

“Sandy [Sandra] Bullock and I saw this facialist in New York, Georgia Louise, and she gives what we call the penis facial and it’s something – I don’t know what it is, or whether it’s just cause it smells a bit like sperm – there’s some enzyme in it so Sandy refers to it as the penis facial.”

The penis facial is the nickname given to a procedure that uses a special epidermal growth factor (EGF) serum derived from stem cells cultivated from the foreskins of Korean infants. “Facialist” Georgia Louise explains that the young stem cells from baby foreskins are thought to activate ageing cells by producing more collagen and wrinkles and causing fine lines to disappear.”

Sarah Paulson starred in FX’s American Horror Story: Cult which had a serious case of Trump Derangement Syndrome this past season. From Daily Mail (September 2017):

“The election of Donald Trump has been called a real-life nightmare by some sections of the American public. TV genius Ryan Murphy took it to even more terrifying heights Tuesday as the center of his FX anthology series American Horror Story: Cult.

The season premiere opened with real footage of Trump and Democratic rival Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail, leading up to opposing reactions to news coverage of his eventual victory.

The character thrilled most at the result was blue-haired Kai Anderson, played by Evan Peters, who is bent on chaos and anarchy. As Trump was named the election winner, he bragged: ‘The revolution has begun.’

The Hillary supporter, meanwhile, was married lesbian Ally Mayfair-Richards, played by Sarah Paulson, who was so devastated by the result it sparked a series of old phobias to return — particularly a fear of clowns.

Mindy Kaling has no love for President Trump and has been known to mock him on Twitter.

Anne Hathaway supported loser Hillary Clinton.

The movie is receiving mixed reviews on Rotten Tomatoes:

  • “Ocean’s 8 is a heist movie that doesn’t have nearly enough scams, cons, disguises, switcheroos or any of the stuff you’d want from a heist movie.”
  • “At the very least, there are little girls out there dreaming of seeing themselves on screen, in a black stealth outfit, having the time of their lives.”
  • “One of the problems with Ocean’s 8 is there isn’t a formidable, hiss-worthy villain a la Andy Garcia’s casino owner in Oceans 11…there’s also something mildly off-putting about the breathless adoration of the Met Gala.”
  • “There’s not a lot here, but what we get is pleasant enough.”
  • “The stakes just never seem all that high, especially when the filmmakers must keep downing tools to cram in some crummy walk-ons from the likes of Maria Sharapova, Katie Holmes, Serena Williams and Anna Wintour.”
  • “Ocean’s 8 is just entertaining enough to pull off a heist but the film doesn’t really up the stakes in the franchise.”

Another Hollyweird movie I won’t be seeing.

Obama’s deep state DOJ and FBI willfully obstructs Congress in the pursuit of justice

By Kelleigh Nelson, reblogged from News With Views:

President Trump was mocked for claims he made that the Obama regime and their weaponized intelligence agency assets had wire-tapped his communications and Trump

Tower. Evidence has since proven that his claim was, in fact, a true statement.  The slow-walking of documents and general obstruction by the agencies involved, the DOJ under AG Jeff Sessions, and the FBI under Wray, has left America largely uninformed as to the level of corruption and anti-American activities of the illegitimate Obama regime.

On Laura Ingraham’s May 15th show, former US attorney Joe diGenova stated that there was absolutely no legitimate basis for a counterintelligence investigation, let alone a criminal investigation.  He explained that John Brennan was at the head of the group of people who were going to create a counterintelligence investigation against Trump by creating false information they would feed through Carter Page and patsy George Papadopoulos so that it would be picked up, reported back to Washington and provide the basis for a fake counterintelligence investigation and it was all Brennan’s doing.

Why is it then that Robert Mueller has never requested an interview with Brennan who started the entire spying vendetta on candidate Trump in April of 2016?  Because there was no dirt on Trump to dig up!

Former Director of the CIA John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper both committed perjury when testifying to Congress, yet neither have been charged.  And both were part of Obama’s counterintelligence investigation of Donald Trump.

FBI’s Slow and Redacted Incriminating Documents

As I mentioned in my last article, prior to the Obama administration, the DOJ and FBI have always responded promptly to any requests by Congress for documents and back then a congressional committee didn’t need a subpoena to get information from the FBI.

Now however, the entire DOJ is using every obstacle and impediment to keep Congress from learning the truth, and we know why…to cover their own backsides.  Congress has to subpoena nearly everything they want, it takes months for the FBI to release, and when they get it, the documents are heavily redacted.  They tell Congress their lack of transparency is necessary for the protection of national security, vital intelligence, and investigative operations. What absolute horse hockey and Devin Nunes and others know it because they’ve seen the unredacted forms.

Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein’s reaction to reports of possible impeachment for failing to respond to congressional subpoenas was to proclaim that, “the Department of Justice is not going to be extorted.”  What?  The DOJ/FBI is obligated to give Congress everything they request.  Who the hell allows your existence and funds you Rosenstein?  What hubris!

Rosenstein, as acting AG after Sessions’ foolish recusal, must believe he is above the law.  He has authorized unlimited investigations of the administration he supposedly serves.  Mark Penn writing for The Hill states, “The Constitution gave the elected representatives of the people the right to decide whether to impeach public officials for failure to comply with completely lawful subpoenas and appropriate oversight. They even provide Congress with immunity included in the Constitution to prevent threats from people like Rosenstein.”

There was no criminal premise to justify any investigation of any Trump campaign official, but the Obama administration used the DOJ/FBI for counterintelligence against the opposition hoping they would find something criminal, which they have not.  Link

Sessions is failing the President and American people by not telling Rosenstein and FBI Director Wray to release the requested documents immediately and dethroning and ejecting Rosenstein and Mueller.  Too many innocent lives have been financially ruined.  We want to know who the planted FBI spy was in the Trump campaign!  Get out from under that rock AG Sessions and do your job!

Persecution of Lt. Gen. Michael T Flynn

Guess who is weighing in on General Flynn!?  None other than former NYC Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik.  He believes Mueller pressed the General to take a plea deal so the Special Counsel would not be caught in their lies and corruptions.  Remember too that this is a process crime plea by Flynn made in order to stop the financial drain of legal costs and to protect his son from prosecution by Mueller and gang, a prosecution created out of thin air. Michael Flynn never lied to anyone, including VP Pence.

But now the lies of the Special Counsel are coming out into the open!  Mike Flynn was set up because of the deep animosity of the intelligence community especially Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe.  Don’t forget that former CIA Director James Woolsey also tried to undercut and destroy General Flynn.

Michael Flynn is hated because he knows all about the intelligence community and the 17-year decay that has seeped into it since Mueller became the FBI Director in 2001.

Grassley Demands all DOJ/FBI Info on Flynn

Sara Carter reports that Chuck Grassley’s May 11th letter to Director Wray and Deputy AG Rosenstein demands they produce the transcript of Flynn’s intercepted calls with Russian Ambassador Kislyak and the FBI’s 302’s by May 25th.  Why give them time, demand them now!  The 302s are the FBI agents’ reports of interviews which are written up after the fact.

Grassley, chairman of the powerful Senate Judiciary Committee is demanding that the DOJ and FBI adhere to requests made over a year ago and turn over all documentation associated with the bureau’s investigation into former National Security Advisor General Michael Flynn. Flynn pleaded guilty to one count of lying to the FBI, despite evidence and admissions from senior FBI officials that he did not lie. Moreover, the letter reveals for the first time the name of the second FBI agent who interviewed Flynn at the White House regarding his conversation with the former Russian Ambassador.

It was former acting AG Sally Yates who marched Strzok and Pientka over to Mike Flynn’s office for an “impromptu interview.” She was fired by President Trump after she refused to defend his executive order to restrict immigration and refugees from several high-risk countries in the Middle East.

Grassley requested that the second FBI Agent Joe Pientka, who was with Peter Strzok when he interviewed Mike Flynn on Jan. 24, 2017, be made available “for a transcribed interview with Committee staff no later than one week following the production of the requested documents.”  Investigative reporter Sara Carter says according to numerous law enforcement sources, neither Strzok or Pientka believed Flynn was lying during their interview with him, as reported.  Link

Those FD-302s

Agent Joe Pientka also filed an FD 302 form following the interview with General Flynn. Grassley is demanding to see both his and Strzok’s FD 302 forms from that interview.  It is well established that former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe loathed the General and was a willing participant in the FBI set-up.

The most recent text messages between FBI attorney Lisa Page and Agent Peter Strzok are telling.  There is evidence of the “widely held belief” that Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe told FBI agents Strzok and Pientka to shape their FBI reports of the interview (FD-302’s) to assist a “Flynn lied” narrative.

This is important as it will mean the FBI had to issue two 302 reports, one from each questioning agent, then compare them to filed 302s of submitted evidentiary. They might have been redrafted in which case it is criminal, or if they agree Flynn didn’t lie, it was exculpatory and not revealed, which is also criminal.

When the FBI called for a meeting in Flynn’s office, the General thought it was routine business, and he wasn’t prepared or aware of the impending interview.  It was a conspiracy to entrap the General.

Inspector General’s Report

Attorney Joe diGenova on the Deep State’s admission of spying on Trump said, “This is the most unbelievable scandal in history.  James Comey was the dirty cop in charge of a bunch of dirty cops. And what you have here is, this was a criminal plot by senior people: John Brennan, James Comey, James Clapper, senior DOJ officials to suborn the presidency of the United States through the use of false evidence. The false FISA warrants were obtained through lying to the FISA Court.”

The Inspector General’s report is coming out any day now and there is indication that it may rule that FBI and Justice Department officials broke the law in their handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation. Link  Watergate was just a break-in robbery to obtain information. What Obama and his administration did was use devious evil means involving government agencies and resources to spy on a political opponent before, during, and after the election.  Then when they lost the election, they attempted a coup to remove Trump from office by any means necessary. This is treason.

The Gordian Knot and Bold Action

Harrison Ford graduated from Maine Township High School East in Park Ridge, Illinois in 1960.  I graduated from that same school in 1964, and I knew Harry’s little brother Terry who was a year ahead of me.  So many famous names came from our high school, some good, some bad, and both Ford’s, like 1965 classmate Hillary Clinton, are leftists.  Harrison Ford’s movie, Raiders of the Lost Ark, had a scene that was not in the script, but was impromptu by Ford and left in because it was so perfect.  Indiana Jones, played by Ford, meets up with an Arab knife wielder who is out to kill him, and rather than duel to death, Indiana Jones simply pulls his firearm and shoots the guy.

End of problem.

The Gordian knot was given its name applicable to a proverbial term for a problem solvable only by bold action. In 333 BC, Alexander the Great, on his march through Anatolia, reached Gordium, the capital of Phrygia. There he was shown the chariot of the ancient founder of the city, Gordius, with its yoke lashed to the pole by means of an intricate knot with its end hidden. According to tradition, this knot was to be untied only by the future conqueror of Asia. In the popular account, Alexander sliced through the knot with his sword. The phrase “cutting the Gordian knot” has thus come to denote a bold solution to a complicated problem.

End of problem.

Conclusion

President Trump is responsible for his administration’s actions. The buck stops with him.  The president has the authority and the duty to ensure that his subordinates honor lawful disclosure requests from Congress. Bold action is required.

The DOJ reports to the President, and our President has the sole power to fire anyone within his administration.  He also has the power to declassify every piece of information being withheld from Congress as it relates to this scandalous counterintelligence investigation.

Furthermore, I am of the opinion that President Trump needs to fire Sessions, Rosenstein and Mueller.

End of problem.
