Trump’s in, California’s out? Longshot exit bid gets boost

Uncategorized

PNP comment: The State of Jefferson movement is hugely opposed to this exit suggestion. We believe in the U.S. Constitution. Jefferson wants to remove itself from the State of California and become the 51st State in the USA. We believe this is a huge mistake. — Editor Liz Bowen

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Donald Trump’s election as president is giving a big social-media boost to an unlikely effort in the nation’s most populous state: a plan to vote on seceding from the union.

The Yes California Independence Campaign hopes to put a question on the November 2018 ballot that would authorize a statewide independence vote for spring 2019.

The effort drew little attention until Tuesday’s election, which also kept Trump’s fellow Republicans in charge of Congress and raised the possibility of a conservative shift on the U.S. Supreme Court.

A look at what’s happening:

THE TRUMP VICTORY

Campaign President Louis J. Marinelli said the election results offer further proof that California is more progressive than the nation as a whole. Voters endorsed ballot measures that included recreational marijuana and increased taxes on the rich. Many Californians were offended by Trump’s statements on immigration and other issues.

“People are starting to come to the realization … ‘Wait a minute, this is not the type of country we want to live in,'” said Marinelli, who lost a primary bid for the state Assembly this year.

THE REACTION

As election results rolled in, the group’s Facebook contacts grew from about 11,000 to about 15,000, and its email account received about 3,000 messages. Marinelli said he couldn’t keep up with the Twitter messages.

The next day, the group set up a tent outside the state Capitol in Sacramento. About a dozen supporters wearing YesCalifornia.org T-shirts talked to passers-by.

“It would frankly be better off if we were our own nation,” said the group’s vice president, Marcus Ruiz Evans, calling Trump’s election further evidence that America is a sinking ship. “Our ship can sail on its own.”

Skeptics, like Steve Angel of Sacramento, criticized what he said is an effort to “balkanize” the United States by breaking it into pieces.

To the north, in Portland, two residents filed a separate petition for a 2018 ballot initiative for Oregon to secede.

THE PREVIOUS ATTEMPTS

Any effort to get an issue on the ballot requires the gathering of hundreds of thousands of signatures.

Marinelli tried unsuccessfully to put several initiatives on the ballot this year, including a proposal to declare California a separate nation, to rename the governor the “president” of California and to fly the California state flag atop the United States flag. Those signature-gathering efforts fizzled.

Repeated attempts to create a 51st state in Northern California, named the State of Jefferson, have also failed. That movement generally draws more conservative supporters who are dissatisfied with California’s dominance by Democrats.

The Yes California Independence Campaign tries to appeal across the political spectrum but holds a generally progressive ideology, Marinelli said.

BREXIT = CALEXIT?

Marinelli equates the movement’s longshot chances to the recent decision by the United Kingdom to leave the European Union.

“People said Brexit wouldn’t happen, and then they said Trump wouldn’t happen … Things that you don’t expect to happen are happening, so why not this?” he said.

Supporters of the initiative note that California, with its 39 million residents, is often compared to other nations, not other states. Data from the World Bank show its economy was equivalent to the sixth-largest in the world last year.

THE HISTORY

Threats to secede from the United States have been a part of American politics almost since the nation was founded. The most serious attempt came before and during the Civil War, when 11 Southern states left to form the Confederacy. The movement ended with the defeat of Confederate forces.

Chapman University law professor Ronald Rotunda said the Constitution does not provide for state secession, so the only way to do it legally would be to change the Constitution — an act that requires the approval of Congress and 38 states.

“It’s not going to happen. You’re not going to find 38 states,” he said. “The theory of our Constitution for over 200 years is we sink or swim together.”

California secession group to hold meet-up at State Capitol

Uncategorized

SF Gate

Saturday, November 5, 2016

An organization hoping to facilitate the secession of California from the Union is holding a meet and greet on the Capitol steps in Sacramento next Wednesday, November 9, 2016, or, the day after the presidential election.

The Yes California Independence Campaign, which is based in San Diego, is aiming to qualify a citizen’s initiative in 2018 to get a referendum for secession on the ballot in 2019. They’ll be in Sacramento to garner support for their initiative.

Siskiyou Co: Sheriff Offers Advice for Holiday Security and Safety

Uncategorized

SISKIYOU COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE NEWS RELEASE

October 17, 2016

 

                    The Siskiyou County Sheriff’ Office (SCSO) has received recent reports of crimes committed against local citizens while they are shopping in local communities or while visiting more populated cities where large department stores and shopping malls are common.  A recent report was received that criminals are targeting unsuspecting shoppers who purchase a number of items in larger stores, which requires them to load their vehicles in populated parking lots full of people and vehicles.  The unsuspecting victim is often preoccupied with loading parcels or groceries in trunks and other receptacles in their vehicles and sometimes thieves seize the opportunity to steal purses and other valuables left temporarily unattended in vehicles or carts while the shopper is preoccupied.  Such activities are increasing in many areas and unfortunately, there are far too many criminals preying on our unsuspecting citizens.  According to Sergeant Jeremiah LaRue, “Since the Holiday Season is rapidly approaching this is an excellent opportunity to remind our citizens of a few safety tips that can prevent them from becoming a victim during this Holiday Season and beyond. A few simple suggestions are listed below, including tips to be safe and secure during the holidays.”

Tip #1

The holidays are a great time to get to know your neighbors.  It helps knowing your neighbors.  Working together to watch for suspicious activities in your neighborhood is a good way to prevent crimes from happening on your street.  Consider consulting with your Neighborhood Watch and take an active role in reporting suspicious activity occurring on your street, road, or area.

Tip #2

It always pays to practice good parking lot safety while shopping.  Lock your vehicle and hide valuables, preferably in the trunk or other suitable locked compartment. Before sunrise and after sunset, park and walk in well-lit areas and carry keys in your hand. Stay alert to your surroundings and take a moment to glance around for possible suspicious persons, vehicles, and/or situations. Prior to getting into your vehicle take a look inside and around before entering.  If you observe evidence of a possible burglary or theft, contact your local law enforcement agency.  For the Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office, contact (530) 841-2900.  For crimes in-progress, such as crimes of violence or property crimes, dial “9-1-1.”

 

Tip #3

When you’re out shopping for the holidays, stay alert to your surroundings.

When in crowded places, be alert for potential thieves. Don’t overload yourself with packages. Maintain visibility and mobility to avoid potential threats. Be wary of strangers approaching you for any reason. The holiday season is notorious for “con-artists” who may attempt to distract you with the intention of taking your money or belongings. When possible, avoid wearing expensive jewelry and carrying large amounts of valuables. Never leave personal belongings unattended. As an added precaution, make sure you have a record of all your credit card numbers in a secure place at home.  It is a good idea to take a photograph of valuables and make them if possible with a number or identifying mark that can be identified later.  Attempt to park in well-lit and populated areas.  Remember, there is safety in numbers but don’t drop your guard – Criminals will often avoid you if you appear to be alert and watchful of your surroundings and seem protective of those around you.  Occasionally stop and look around for indicators of suspicious activities – For example, you may notice someone following you or paying inordinate attention to your activities.  If practical, shop during daytime hours and know the locations you are going to visit and know the best routes to and from those sites.  Keep doors of your vehicle locked at all times.

Tip #4

Shop with friends or relatives – there is safety in numbers.  Recognize that there is safety in numbers and arrange to shop with friends and relatives instead of going out alone. Make sure everyone remains vigilant and looks out for each other.

Tip #5

Tips for Holiday Shopping with Children.  When shopping with children, keep a close eye on them at all times. Consider coaching them to go to a store clerk, security guard, or peace officer if they become separated and be sure they know their first and last name so they can advise someone who they are. Give children a contact phone number that they can carry on their person in case they do become lost.  It is always a good idea to carry a photo of your child and be prepared to give a detailed description of what they look like and memorize what they are wearing.

Tip #6

Holiday Safety Tips for Online Shoppers.  Online shopping is becoming increasingly popular. The Internet does have risks so it is important to take steps to protect yourself when shopping online. The National Cyber Security Alliance recommends that you make sure you have a security suite (firewall, anti-virus and anti-spyware) installed and updated with the most current information before shopping online. Also, keep your operating system and Web browser up-to-date. Before you enter your personal and financial information for an online transaction, look for signs that the site is secure. This includes a closed padlock on your Web browser’s address bar or a URL address that begins with shttp or https. This indicates that the purchase is encrypted or secured. Never use unsecured wireless networks to make an online purchase.  It is usually safer to do business with an established business that is known to you.

Tip #7

More Tips for Shopping Online.  Before providing personal or financial information, check the Web site’s privacy policy. Make sure you understand how your information will be stored and used. Never send cash through the mail or use a money-wiring service because you’ll have no recourse if something goes wrong. Print and save records of your online transactions, including the product description, price, online receipt, terms of the sale, and copies of any email exchange with the seller. Read your credit card statements as soon as you get them to make sure there are no unauthorized charges. If there is a discrepancy, report it immediately.  Review your on-line banking statements regularly to ensure fraudulent transactions are easily detected early and report financial crimes to law enforcement.

Tip #8

Keeping your home safe during the holidays is important too.  Be extra cautious about locking windows, sliders, and doors when leaving for any length of time. We suggest keeping all entrance points into your house secured while you’re at home as well. Set indoor and outdoor lights on timers and think about doing the same with a television or radio to make it appear as if someone is home. Never keep gifts or valuable objects in plain view from any window or doors. Close blinds, shutters, drapes, and curtains because if a burglar can see those items they may attempt to take them from you. If a person knocks at your door and you don’t recognize them, don’t feel obligated to open your door. Teach your children that by no means should they open the door to anyone prior to your knowledge and authorization.  Ensure garages and other structures are kept secure as well at all times when not in use.  Criminals have also been known to enter homes through doggie-doors or other animal access points.  Consider obtaining a home security system.  Dogs can also help because regardless of size, they can warn you of the presence of strangers and deter those lurking about when you are not at home.

Tip #9

Staying informed helps increase home security year-round.  For additional information on security while shopping or while at home, consult your local law enforcement agency or the SCSO website.  Consider starting a Neighborhood Watch program or consult with your program members if it already exists.  You may also contact your local law enforcement agency to obtain information about trends in your neighborhood.

Tip #10

Let someone you trust know when you’re traveling during the holidays.  Inform someone who’s trustworthy where you will be and when you might be expected back to your residence. Ask a neighbor or other dependable persons to watch your house and retrieve your newspapers and mail if possible.  Contact your local law enforcement agency or SCSO and ask them to conduct additional patrols in your area if you are going to be away for an extended period of time.

Tip #11

Watching the weather is an important safety factor for Holiday Travelers.  Weather can present safety challenges this time of the year, especially for those out-of-town shopping trips but even local trips to the store or mall can be hazardous due to changing climatic and traffic conditions.  Stay tuned to weather conditions. Anticipate inclement weather and plan accordingly. Carry chains, keep sufficient gas in the tank and always use extreme caution while driving, always operating your vehicle at a speed safe for prevailing traffic conditions. Keep an eye out for pedestrians and other less-obvious traffic such as bicyclists and motorcycles.  During trips, even of short duration, carry extra provisions such as flashlight, blankets, jackets, gloves, first aid kit, a charged cell phone, winter hat, boots, water, snacks, and comfort items, especially if children are with you in the event you are delayed during a winter storm or accident.  Ensure your vehicle and accessories, such as tires, windshield wipers, belts, and battery are inspected and in good shape.

 

 

Tip #12

When celebrating the holidays, celebrate responsibly.  Many people celebrate the season by attending holiday parties with family and friends. Enjoy these gatherings responsibly so this time of joy does not become a time of tragedy. Watch how much you drink. Don’t drink and drive.  Use a designated driver and ride with someone who is sober. The Sheriff’s Office recommends you prearrange transportation if you plan on consuming alcoholic beverages.  Alcoholic consumption may also make you more susceptible to criminals lurking about to victimize unsuspecting citizens.  Always safeguard valuables such as wallets and purses while at holiday parties or events, since criminals often look for opportunities to strike when you are distracted and crowds often shield their prying eyes and actions.  Recognize the fact that during this time of the year, there may be more impaired drivers on the road due to the many celebrations that are traditionally hosted this time of the year.

According to Sergeant LaRue, “On behalf of Sheriff Lopey and the men and women of the Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office, we wish all of our fellow citizens a safe and joyous Holiday Season.  We hope these tips will help prevent you from becoming a victim.  Anyone with information about any crime or suspicious persons or activities in the area, including when you are shopping here or somewhere else should follow the rule, “IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING” by contacting the local law enforcement agency or if in a county area contact the SCSO’s 24-hour Dispatch Center at (530) 841-2900.  Some larger stores and shopping malls have security officers assigned, which are also good sources for help while in stores or parking lots.  Remember, an attempted crime or actual crime in-progress, especially those involving an act of violence or property-related crime, such as thefts or car burglaries, should be handled by dialing “9-1-1.”

83-year old woman, fed up with husband, breaks iron skillet over his head, police say

Uncategorized

PNP comment: It really isn’t funny. It really could happen — more often! — Editor Liz Bowen

An 83-year-old Bellingham woman beat her husband, also 83, over the head with a cast iron skillet in an alleged assault that cracked the pan in half early Saturday, July 23, according to police.

Linda Jane Houser called police around 12:10 a.m. to report she had beaten her husband with a skillet in their home at 2423 View Ridge Drive, said Bellingham Police Sgt. Mike Scanlon.

At the house Linda Houser freely admitted she attacked her husband of 66 years, Milton Houser, because she was done dealing with him, according to police.

She told officers she was “fed up,” and that “she was trying to kill him,” a deputy prosecutor, Evan Jones, said in court on Monday. She accused him of a lifetime of emotional abuse.

A large cast iron skillet — broken down the middle, and covered in blood — was recovered as evidence. Milton Houser needed staples for a bleeding head wound, but he was conscious and able to speak with police at the house.

He told officers they got into an argument, but he denied she hit him.

“I think he was probably trying to look out for his wife,” Scanlon said.

Police arrested Linda Houser on suspicion of assault in the first degree. She has no criminal record. Her bail was set over the weekend at $40,000 by a Municipal Court judge.

On Monday at another bail hearing, Milton Houser asked a Superior Court commissioner to let his           wife go home so they could take care of their finances. Commissioner Alfred Heydrich asked Milton Houser if he was concerned for his safety.

“I’m not concerned about my wife’s safety,” Milton Houser replied. “I’m not going to do anything to my wife.”

“I’m asking about your safety, sir,” Heydrich said. “You’re the one who got apparently smacked in the head with an iron skillet.”

“Well, yes,” Milton said. “I did. I guess.”

Heydrich lowered bail to $7,500 and issued a no-contact order between the husband and wife. Over the next 15 minutes Milton Houser seemed confused as he asked how he could talk to his wife, when she would come home and where she would be staying.

“We’ve been married 65 – over 65 years,” Milton Houser said. “She could’ve left, with anybody she wanted to.”

“Look,” Heydrich said. “My mom and dad were married for 65 years. I get it, OK? But this is a very exceptional situation here. She’s accused of a very serious crime: essentially trying to kill you. There seems to be some pretty solid evidence of that, and I would be derelict in my duty if I allowed her to come home to you, under those circumstances.”

Linda Houser, meanwhile, said she understood the no-contact order. If she posts bond she plans to live with a sister in the Puget neighborhood.
