Counties

At the New California State meeting on Saturday March 17, 2018 2 new counties were approved to join the movement.  This brings the fully chartered counties up to 37 with the unanimous approval of Sierra and Calaveras counties.  Ventura county which was up for chartering was withdrawn prior to the March 17, 2018 meeting but is expected to be charted by the next meeting in April. “Another great meeting for New California with these two key counties” said Paul Preston , Vice Chair of New California.

New California is in discussion with 12 more counties who are seeking chartering into the New California movement.  Preston points out that California has 58 counties and if the remaining 12 counties in negotiations are charted it would total 49 counties who would be involved with the New California movement.

‘New California’ Could Become the Next West Virginia

University of Tennessee Law School professor Glenn Harlan Reynolds looks at the precedents and concludes it could happen

by Mark Tapscott | Updated 28 Feb 2018 at 12:24 PM

Secession was banned for all time when the Northern states defeated the Southern Confederacy in the Civil War, right? Well, no, it wasn’t.

In fact, University of Tennessee law professor Glenn Harlan Reynolds sees the following scenario as a possibility not out of the question in the near future:

“In the summer of 2021, following the California financial crisis and CalPers pension collapse, public employee-supporting Democrats from the California General Assembly absented themselves from the state, preventing a quorum so that legislation slashing pension payouts could not be passed.

“That absence stretched from days into weeks, as the state government largely shut down for lack of funding. Seizing on this moment, 34 counties from the eastern and rural parts of what was then California organized themselves and sent representatives to Fresno, where those representatives declared themselves the new, official California General Assembly and designated individuals of their choice as the new, official governor and attorney general.

“The new legislature and officials were quickly recognized by President Donald Trump, who, citing his authority under the Insurrection Act and Article IV section 4 of the United States Constitution, deemed them the official government of the state, and sent federal troops from the 101st Airborne Division to Fresno to ensure that what he called ‘leftovers’ of the ‘old, failed state government’ were unable to ’cause trouble.’ President Trump’s recognition was echoed in a joint resolution of the Republican-controlled Congress, which perhaps anticipated the addition of two new Republican senators.”

Far-fetched? Fanciful? Not at all, Reynolds argues in “Splitsylvania: State Secession and What To do About It,” available in abstract form and downloadable at SSRN.

In addition to being a law professor, Reynolds is the founder and long-time proprietor of Instapundit.com, one of the first political blogs to achieve and maintain national influence from the early days of blogging.

“Intrastate secession isn’t exactly new in the United States: West Virginia was once part of Virginia, for example, and Tennessee was once part of North Carolina, though that evolution was less fraught,” Reynolds writes.

“But in recent years, we’ve seen a number of states facing calls to split, from inhabitants of regions who feel effectively unrepresented. In New York State, for example, there have been repeated calls to split upstate New York from the New York City region. One such proposal involves letting the NYC area keep the name “New York,” while the new upstate state would be named “New Amsterdam.”

Hispanic Judge Paves Way for Border WallA federal judge ruled against an environmental challenge to President Donald Trump’s border wall, therefore allowing construction plans to move forward. You’ll never guess who this judge is! 00:0001:23

There have been other movements as well, some larger and noisier than others, to split Chicago off from the rest of Illinois, break Texas into six separate new states, and to create two new states out of the eastern sections of Washington and Oregon.

California, though, remains the place where a determined citizen movement may be most likely to pursue a successful intra-state secession, a la West Virginia's withdrawal from the Commonwealth of Virginia during the Civil War, according to Reynolds.

"Perhaps better publicized is Silicon Valley entrepreneur Tim Draper's plan to split California into six states, one of which would be, essentially, Silicon Valley's own preserve. Though Draper's plan did not make the 2016 ballot, it served as a useful outlet for complaints about unrepresented parts of the state," Reynolds writes.

In order to be successful, though, Reynolds suggests that it must "also please the residents of inland and northern California, who feel that California state government — with its heavy interests in the Los Angeles and San Francisco Bay areas — views them with indifference or even hostility."

Reynolds points to a second, more moderate effort to split California into two states by sundering the coastal areas into one jurisdiction and the rest of the state into the other, with the latter to be known as "New California."

This essay is a helpful reminder that secession movements are not out of the question in a nation as polarized as America in 2018.

He quotes CBS News' reporting that "unlike other separation movements in the past, the state of New California wants to do things by the book, citing Article 4, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution and working with the state legislature to get it done, similar to the way West Virginia was formed ... The group is organized with committees and a council of county representatives, but say it will take 10 to 18 months before they are ready to fully engage with the state legislature."

Reynolds is not encouraging any of the secession movements, and he describes the numerous legislative, regulatory and political obstacles that crowd the road ahead for all of them. But his essay is a helpful reminder that it's not out of the question in a nation as polarized as America in 2018.

New California State is Growing: Three More Counties Join New California

BY PAUL PRESTON


The New California State movement is growing.  At the November 18, 2017 meeting of the New California Council of County Representatives the counties of Kern, Sonoma and Santa Clara Counties were certified by a vote of the County Representatives. 


This brings the total ‘ratified’ counties in the New California State movement to 15 Counties.  Currently there are an additional 11 counties who have formed organized committees including Siskiyou, Orange, San Bernardino, Riverside, San Diego, Shasta, Plumas, Lassen, Merced, Glenn and Stanislaus.  An additional 12 counties are in process to be organized by mid December 2017. New California’s goal is to be at 40 ratified counties by January 1, 2018.

CALIFORNIA GOV. MANDATES SEND ELECTRIC PRICES SOAR, TEXAS FREE MARKET POLICIES KEEPS PRICES LOW

This commentary was originally featured in Fox News on November 16, 2017. 


California’s rush to impose harsh government mandates cutting carbon dioxide emissions in the generation of electricity is raising the electricity bills of families and businesses across the state. Poor families are suffering the most.In sharp contrast, Texas is successfully taking a free-market approach that is increasing the use of clean renewable energy and lowering electricity bills in the state.


The tale of two states offers a lesson for the nation.The far-left Democrats who control state government in California have doubled down on their extremist campaign to cut carbon dioxide emissions – regardless of the cost and the pain they inflict on Californians, who are already struggling to pay some of the highest electricity bills in the nation.California’s Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown said in September: “De-carbonizing the economy when the economy depends so totally on carbon is not child’s play. It’s quite daunting.”


“Daunting” is an understatement. After decades of severe state mandates and skyrocketing subsidies for renewable energy, Brown boasted that California gets about 30 percent of its energy from renewable sources – with a goal of 50 percent in seven years.That may sound impressive, but Brown’s numbers referred only to electricity generation. He didn’t count transportation – the cars, trucks, buses, motorcycles, trains and planes that carry millions of Californians every day. 


Transportation accounts for about 39 percent of the Golden State’s energy consumption – and is almost all powered by carbon-based gasoline, diesel and jet fuel.In 2004, at the dawn of California’s accelerated push into “de-carbonizing,” 10 percent of the state’s power came from approved renewable sources, with the total rising to 25 percent when electricity from large hydroelectric dams was included.By 2016, California’s electric grid derived 25 percent of its power from renewable energy sources, with another 10 percent coming from large hydroelectric dams. 


While the dams also generate renewable electricity, they are loathed by environmentalists, so they don’t count towards California’s non-carbon energy goals.Pushing California’s electric portfolio from 25 percent renewables, including hydroelectric dams above 50 megawatts, to 35 percent over a dozen years is a direct consequence of several laws and regulations intended to increase mostly wind and solar power generation.Interestingly, in the first three months of this year, 23 percent of the electricity in Texas’ power grid came from wind generation. And while federal subsidies play a role in both states, Texas’ policy towards electric generation is decidedly more market-based than in California.


In addition to heavy government intervention in California’s electricity market, its big publicly regulated utilities are guaranteed a rate of return by the state government from both the electricity they sell to the public and from the new generation facilities – such as natural gas power plants, wind turbines and solar thermal facilities – that they build.This means that no matter how much a new generating facility costs and no matter how much the electricity costs produced by the facility, the utility will make a profit as guaranteed by law. Crony corporatism is a great racket – if you can get into it.


But Texas guarantees no profits to the firms that build and operate power plants there.The difference can readily be seen in the electrical rates in each state.In August of 2004 and the 12 months prior, before California started its big push into renewable energy, monthly retail electricity rates averaged 50 percent higher than the U.S. average. Rates in Texas during the same period meanwhile stood at 2 percent above the national average.Texas was at the time in the middle of a multiyear electric market deregulation effort. The effort was heavily criticized by so-called consumer protection advocates as a giveaway to big business.


This year –13 years later – it’s instructive to see how our nation’s two most-populous states have diverged in terms of the results of their energy policies.California’s average retail electric rates in the most recent 12 months ending in August this year were again 50 percent higher than the national average – in spite of politicians’ promises that renewable energy would be less expensive. In the just the past seven years, California’s retail electricity prices have shot up 20 percent. Texas consumers, on the other hand, went from paying more than the national average to paying electricity prices 19 percent lower than the national average.


Looking at it another way, in 2004 Californians paid 47 percent more for their electricity than Texans. By 2017 Californians paid almost double – 86 percent more – to keep the lights on and run manufacturing than did Texans.The bottom line for California’s households isn’t pretty. 


Last year, California shelled out $35.6 billion for electricity. In inflation-adjusted dollars, Californians were paying 8.3 percent more for their power in the 12 months ending in August 2017 compared to 13 years earlier.This amounts to what is effectively a de-carbonization and regulatory tax of $3 billion a year, or $299 for a family of four on a per capita basis.In Texas, where market competition has helped drive down the price of electricity, consumers are saving about $4.7 billion a year – or $669 per family of four compared to electric prices 13 years ago in inflation-adjusted terms.


Data suggests that, if California followed Texas’ market-based electric policy, the per capita savings could be more than $242 per year – even with a robust increase in renewable energy.As almost always happens, Big Government mandates raise prices for families and businesses. The private sector lowers them.
