Post Title and Shortlink: Just Say No to: Yes California, Inc. ~ Yes California Independence COMMITTEE (PAC) ~Yes California Independence CAMPAIGN ~ YesCalifornia.org ~ and “CalExit.” (And Why). [2/6/2017 + 2/7 addition] (Case-sensitive shortlink ends “-5Lj”).

Recommended: preview (scroll or “Page-Down”) and read the tags t bottom for better overview of subject matter, which goes beyond that mentioned in the title (see also prior post 2/5/2017).   This updated added (mostly to include title’s shortlink-ending character string on body of post, something I now do routinely), Feb. 23, 2020//LGH.

Since I just [2017] added a section post-publication (don’t worry, entire post is still ca. 8,000 words only), I felt the responsible thing would be to copy the “introduction” from below the update to the very top here.  You’ll see it again below.  Just realize this post is a continuation of another one and on a specific topic as you see in its title.

What’s happening here?


On Sunday Feb. 5, 2017, I published an “Alert” about an upcoming 18,000 word post, stating I’d had enough and was just going to publish it — and gave a preview.

The name of the “18,000-worder” still is: How Many Unified City/County Governments are there, and Since When, and Why?  Here’s One (Wyandotte County|KCK, since 1997)**

At the time the “CalBrexit” section of the 18,000-worder wasn’t quite so long.  I had left undone the attempt to locate the “MIA” entity behind this campaign based on its political Committee (that is Political Action Committee or PAC) FPPN ID#.

**[This is the follow-up.  Some of its roots still remain on the above post.]

In adding the update section, some of it on “Newsweek” (one of many outlets reporting on this California so-called movement to secede), I am also reminding us to become and try to stay aware of the vehicles of communication, and just what type of powerhouse corporations (and families) are behind them, and how they deal with profits, and cut their losses.

We are aware of “conduits” for water to drink, bathe, and wash away things we don’t want hanging around our homes, when reports of contamination make the headlines (Flint Michigan; about lead levels).

We should be no less aware (and if this condition exists, correct it!) that the conduits of information today have a history — and that includes the financial and ownership history as well.  Without calling these “contaminated” per se, not one of them is free from influence.  Just try to maintain some awareness overall of where these are, and from which “sovereign nation” (while we’re on the topic) they may reside, form year to year.  This is just good basic information to understand in life…  As people with their controlled or owned corporations powerful enough to buy and sell off newspapers like some of us may have to plan ahead for vehicles — or clothes, or even food are generally going to be active in several categories of life.

For the context (I have the whole-page image below also) here’s a recent search on the theme, and I’ve looked at every article (I THINK) on the list.


Here’s a quote from the last one shown:

California, you’re not going to secede so shut up and help us fix our country.” By Jeff Taylor in Bilerico Report (LGBTQnation.com), Nov. 17, 2016

There is a growing movement in California calling for secession now that Donald Trump has become president-elect. Because as we all know, when things don’t go your way the best response is to give up and run away from home.

===>Silicon Valley big wigs like Uber investor and Hyperloop co-founder Shervin Pishevar and angel investor Jason Calacanis have jumped on board, giving the concept more credence and potential financial backing

Apparently helping to gentrify a large swath of California so that only rich people can afford to live there isn’t enough. Now they need to leave the most vulnerable in our society even more high and dry by helping to ensure the United States remains red for the foreseeable future.

Because let’s be honest, that would be the result. And someone should probably tell them that they border the ocean. When they start falling into the water, helped along by the even harder right turn they ensured our country would take, the union might not look so awful after all.

Although they seem to have a plan for that inevitability.

We can re-enter the union after California becomes a nation,” Pishevar told CNBC. “As the sixth largest economy in the world, the economic engine of the nation and provider of a large percentage of the federal budget, California carries a lot of weight.”

That is, of course, assuming we would take you traitors back.

That’s tongue in cheek, but I don’t think it’s funny, and having already seen what California is doing (as are other states) to screw its own, while working hard to open trade offices overseas (for example, in China, overseen by groups like Bay Area Council) and the attempt to standardize and dumb down while claiming it’s actually the opposite, the entire public school system, I’m calling this one out.

And no, I will not wade through ALL the media outlets small or large on this (for one, they seem to gunk up my browser… or bring it to a crawl — or a stall). //Let’s Get Honest 2-6-2017 Monday evening PST.

Actual Title & Link: Just Say No to: Yes California, Inc. ~ Yes California Independence COMMITTEE (PAC) ~Yes California Independence CAMPAIGN ~ YesCalifornia.org ~ and “CalBrexit.” (And Why)

From a 6/25/2016 Newsweek article, this suggests the potential state lines for the hypothetical Nation of California. Hmm...

From a 6/25/2016 Newsweek article**, this suggests the potential state lines for the hypothetical Nation of California. Hmm… The City and County of San Francisco are eliminated, as well as the “9-county Bay Area” region surrounding it.  but the State of Los Angeles (currently a City and County also, with a port) and San Diego (also currently a City and County) are retrained.  Sonoma — currently a smaller county — has retained its name and become a State.  In the fertile Central Valley, “San Joaquin” and environs have become “Alta” and “Baja Joaquin.”  There is also a “Calexico” as you can see.  Far north of the new nation, it’s “Jefferson”..  Cute..

Section here is a post-publication (2/7/2017) update.  I needed to add link for the Newsweek quote above, added a quote, and continued the theme of “who owns the press” by including references to the history of Newsweek’s various owners.  This has gotten more interesting in recent years. After that I’ll get right back to “CalExit” and explaining what this post is about in the first place.  Look for where the light-blue background stops, and heading indicating you’re “back on track”…//LGH
