Baird declares Jefferson movement ‘cannot be stopped’

JEFFERSON DECLARATION, Mark Baird

Lassen News.com

By Sam Williams
Managing Editor

“What’s going to happen next cannot be stopped,” Mark Baird, one of the most highly visible organizers of the state of Jefferson movement, boldly declared during a May 1 meeting at Veterans Memorial Hall in Susanville. “Keep It California does not realize they cannot stop Jefferson. They couldn’t stop Jefferson even if they wanted to. They couldn’t stop Jefferson if tomorrow 10 counties stood up on a chair and said we don’t want this. They can’t stop it.”

According to Baird, the state of Jefferson’s legal team plans to file a lawsuit that will result in “an automatic ticket to the United States Supreme Court that cannot be stopped. No political entity can stop us from going to court – as long as we can afford to pay our lawyers.”

This case will go through the federal courts all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court unless the state of California decides to orchestrate the split of the state of Jefferson, Baird said.

He said the Jeffersonians and their attorneys currently are working hard to make sure “The arguments we’re making are substantial, substantiated, verifiable, truthful and constitutional arguments to outline the fact that we have been denied adequate representation in the state of California and the state must be made to either comply and expand representation or allow us to separate.”

“We’re not suing them to create a state of Jefferson,” Baird said. “There is no way to judicially separate a state. We are suing them as citizens and residents of the various counties of California … We’re going to sue in the federal court for the Eastern District for lack of representation and dilution of vote.”

According to Baird, a district court judge cannot hear a voter dilution case alone. He must take the case to the chief justice. If the case is rejected, “we’re prepared to go to the Ninth Circuit Court to appeal, and we can.”

But Baird said all that decision by the court does is delay the inevitable.

“Here’s the beauty,” Baird said. “We cannot be stopped, folks, we can’t. Because when we appeal to the Ninth Circuit, they automatically appoint a three-judge panel … Once the district court appoints a three-judge panel, that’s an automatic ticket to the supreme court, and they cannot say no to our case.”

But Baird said the Jefferson’s legal team believes there’s a “strong possibility” of another resolution.

It’s possible “The state of California will come to us and say, OK, OK, we get it, what is it going to take to make you people go away?” Baird said. “And here’s where we say, ‘You own the monoparty in California, and we all know it. It’s no secret. You engineer an Article 3 Section IV vote for state split and you instruct the two United States senators that are in your pocket to do the same in the United States Senate, and we will drop this cause of action and go away and you can continue to steal from your people until the cows come home and we will be free to institute a constitutional republic that protects the property rights and the individual rights of its inhabitants.'”

The people have spoken

The people of Jefferson have spoken, Baird said.

“We have been bombarding Sacramento with thousands and thousands and thousands and thousands and thousands of phone calls and thousands of emails” to representatives “who refuse to even answer our questions … and the response is an utterly, abjectly, deafening silence from every single one of those representatives. Does that constitute representative government?”

Baird said it doesn’t.

“When you have representatives who refuse to represent you, I would say that’s a lack of representation just by deductive logic,” Baird said.

“You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink,” Baird said, and the people cannot force their representatives in the state legislature to sponsor a bill that could lead to the creation of the state of Jefferson.

So, according to Baird, the Jeffersonians have standing to file a lawsuit because their representatives have not moved their petitions forward.

He also said 21 counties have expressed a desire to explore the state of Jefferson concept.

Baird said the California Constitution gives the people in the state “the inalienable right” to change the government anytime the public good demands. He said all just power derives from the consent of the governed.

“We don’t need the permission of anyone to do what we’re doing,” he said. “We’re not asking anyone’s permission. We’re asking whether some governmental bodies agree with us. If they do, good. If they don’t, who has all the power? Us. We don’t need their permission. We are doing this because it has to be done. We are doing this because, according to our founding document, we have suffered a long train of abuses.”

According to Baird, the Jefferson movement has a chance “to change this nation – not this county, not this state, to change this nation forever for the better. How? And that’s the most important part of this question. By restoring representation to each and every county in California.”

And when the supreme court upholds the Jefferson lawsuit, “everyone has to listen. If we prevail in the supreme court, we’re going to restore representation to every single county in the United States of America.”

Baird said three U.S. Supreme Court decisions in the 1960s “got us where we are now,” but from Baird’s perspective, those decisions are flawed and ultimately created the one-man, one-vote system that denies rural counties representation and abolished California’s legislature the ability to base itself upon the federal model (a representative from nearly every county in the state senate and an assembly apportioned by population).

He said the current situation arose because citizens quit paying attention and stopped holding government accountable.

Time for the State of Jefferson?

Facing up to the state’s debt burden

The state of California has run up $6,400 on your credit card. And the same amount for your spouse and each of your children. A family of four owes more than $25,000.

How is California working out for you?

“Use your common sense move to Texas, Tennessee or any other free State (a free State is one with low taxes and does not force workers to pay bribes to unions). Do you want freedom or good weather? Your choice.”
YOU CAN HAVE BOTH! Move to Jefferson!

Constitution, JEFFERSON DECLARATION, Liberty, Mark Baird

Rebellion in California

New York Daily News.com

BY SARAH GOODYEAR

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 2016

Getting to the heart of the vast region of Northern California that wants to break free and become the nation’s 51st state requires leaving California behind. At least, any familiar notion you may have of California. And that, in a sense, is exactly what you do when you travel there by car, which is pretty much the only way to reach the small towns in this sparsely populated part of the country.

Pull onto the freeway leaving the San Francisco International Airport, and you recognize the California from the movies: palm trees, speeding traffic, the glitter of the big city on the bay, the extended slog of suburbia. You may think you’re already in Northern California, but you’d be wrong. You’ll understand just how wrong by the time you reach your destination.

It’s not long before the landscape opens up and flattens out. This is the Sacramento River Delta, the rich farmland where they grow rice and almonds, tomatoes and alfalfa, sucking up vast amounts of water coming from the north. A roadside trailer flashes past, painted with the message that Jesus bled and died for you.

At a nondescript gas station in the town of Redding, you notice the first sign of the breakaway movement: a rack of forest-green sweatshirts bearing a yellow seal marked with a bold black double X. It’s the seal of the State of Jefferson, an idea that dates back more than 70 years and is currently being revived by a passionate group of separatists. They are pushing to split from the Golden State and form a new state roughly the size of North Carolina, but with one-fifth of the population. It’s a move that would require approval from both the California Legislature and the U.S. Congress.

The fight to create Jefferson is the longest of long shots, a Hail Mary pass made by folks who are sick of being underrepresented in the state legislature and ignored by California’s urban centers. Cut off from the seats of power by geography, alienated by the state’s left-leaning politics and tendency toward regulation, enduring stubbornly high unemployment, facing the decimation of traditional industries such as logging, and harboring few prospects for economic growth, these disaffected citizens — overwhelmingly white and mostly conservative — share many of the concerns about central state overreach as the militia members who recently took control of a wildlife refuge in Oregon. They, however, are committed to a political solution rather than an armed rebellion.

On Aug. 11 at 5 pm, an Official “State of Jefferson” Presentation will be given to the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors in the BoS room at 330 Fair Lane, Placerville. The Public is invited.

On Aug. 26 at 7pm, CA Assemblywoman Beth Gaines will speak at the group’s regular meeting place, the American Legion Hall on 4561 Greenstone Rd. Placerville. The Public is invited.

The group writes, “To ensure that The People in Jefferson have an open forum for discussion in which they can exercise Free Speech, and to facilitate a forum that is in line with Thomas Jefferson’s Liberty… -This group was created to promote The Philosophy Of Liberty, among The People of Jefferson, and to provide a forum for open discussion on topics of interest to Jefferson, and to the individuals thereof.”
The State of Jefferson is a proposed U.S. state that would span the contiguous, mostly rural area of southern Oregon and northern California in order to gain statehood.

This region on the Pacific Coast is the most famous of several that have sought to adopt the name of Thomas Jefferson, the third President of the United States. Thomas Jefferson sent the Lewis and Clark expedition into the Pacific Northwest in 1803, hence the association of his name with the region. The name “Jefferson” has also been used for other proposed states.
If the proposal were approved, the new state’s capital city would have to be determined by a constitutional convention. Yreka was named the provisional capital in the original 1941 proposal. Some supporters of the more recent revival have also identified Redding as a potential capital.

The local group can be found online at

Jefferson supporters are asked to jump into action

Mark Baird, State of Jefferson

By Liz Bowen
Published in Trinity Gazette

May 21, 2015

Mark Baird, spokesman for the State of Jefferson committee, is asking for Jefferson supporters to call their county supervisors and respectfully ask for a “yes” vote on the declaration to withdraw from the State of California.
“In Trinity and Colusa Counties, we are waiting for the boards to schedule an action item. Please, call your county supervisor and ask for support of the State of Jefferson,” said Baird, who has been traveling throughout 19 counties of Northern California during the past year on the quest of splitting from California.
So far, eight counties have joined the new statehood movement. They are: Siskiyou, Modoc, Glenn, Yuba, Tehama, Sutter, Lake and Lassen.
On May 12th, Jefferson supporters filled the Nevada County Supervisors’ room as Baird explained the State of Jefferson proposal, which utilizes the U.S. Constitution’s Article 4, Sec. 3 for its legal stand. Baird also gave the Jefferson presentation to the Plumas County Supervisors on April 14th, which included a room full of supporters.
During the past two months, Baird and other Jefferson leaders have spoken at community town halls in Shasta, Sierra, El Dorado, Colusa and Mendocino Counties. A special meeting with business leaders was held in Butte County.
Now, Baird is asking for additional support from “the people.” In going forward, leaders of the Jefferson movement need help getting county supervisors to understand how broad-based the Jefferson movement really is. “It’s important that we put aside differences and restore representation and liberty to Northern California,” said Baird.
The idea of more representation by creating a new state is growing and Baird has found himself speaking on numerous radio and internet shows. Baird said the interviews last from 15 minutes to two hours and are broadcast by local, regional and national stations. George Noory was quite interested in the Jefferson movement during Baird’s interview; and his show covers the U.S. and Canada with an estimated 2.7 million listeners on 570 stations.
Baird said that many interviewers on the radio shows admit they used to live in California, but moved out because of over-taxation and the growing regulations that hinder business. Baird said “lack of representation” reverberates with everyone. “That’s what has excited everybody, the fact that we must have more representation.”
Those supporting the declaration to withdraw from the State of California readily point to the fact that out of 40 state senators, there are a total of 3 elected in the North State. Even more lack of representation is found in the Assembly, where only 3 out of 80 are allowed to be elected in Northern California, which represents over one-third of the state’s land base.
“Without representation, our economies will continue to crash,” said Baird, who adds that each county deserves to elect a state senator for true representation.
California continues a downward spiral of debt. A check on the official California Debt Clock shows a negative $426 billion. Despite the nay-sayers, Jefferson supporters want out before California crashes.
For more information on the State of Jefferson movement, go to the Jefferson Declaration Committee’s updated website — www.SOJ51.net — and the Jefferson Declaration.net site is now called Jefferson Declaration Blog.net.
Also check out activities in each county on facebook. Just type in the county name and add “for State of Jefferson.”
