    The New York Times has published an extensive look at California’s “far north,” the group of conservative counties in the high Sierra country whose residents often feel alienated from state government, and where a movement to form a new “State of Jefferson” remains strong. The Times notes: The residents of this region argue that their political voice is drowned out in a system that has only one state senator for every million residents. Many liberals in California describe themselves as the resistance to Mr. Trump. Residents of the north say they are the resistance to the resistance, politically invisible to...

    State of Jefferson is a legal, Constitutional and patriotic movement I hold it, that a little rebellion, now and then, is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical.——Thomas Jefferson Hundreds of thousands of Northern Californians are seeking a return to a representative government that serves the citizens and not itself. California’s northern most counties are suffering from a lack of representation in the state Legislature. Northern California holds only 3 out of 80 seats in the California Assembly, 3 out of 40 seats in the California Senate, and 2 out of 53...
  • 20 Thomas Jefferson Quotes for His 275th Birthday

    FEE ^ | 13 April 2018
    Post your favorite quote and why it is your favorite. April 13 is Thomas Jefferson’s 275th Birthday. Since I share his birthday, I have long been a fan. But that is mainly because the drafter of the Declaration of Independence was the most prolific of our founders, especially on the topics of liberty and the rights that America was created to preserve and protect. It is worth celebrating his bicenterquasiquigenary (according to the only website I found providing a latin name) by remembering his profound words.

    A statue to Thomas Jefferson on the lawn of the University of Virginia was defaced with the words 'racist' and 'rapist' early on Friday morning, just before the start of celebrations marking the 275th anniversary of his birth. A UVA spokesman said: 'The university is disappointed that individuals vandalized the statue of Thomas Jefferson on the Lawn on the day that we honor his contributions to our University and to our democracy. 'UVA welcomes open and civil discourse on such important issues. However, acts of vandalism do not contribute to meaningful discussion. 'Crews from Facilities Management are removing the vandalism,...
  • Under a Monticello Restroom, a Hidden Piece of History: bedroom of slave Sally Hemings

    A $35 million restoration of Monticello is underway, but it's what's been buried under a restroom there for nearly 80 years that's been attracting the most attention of late: the bedroom of Sally Hemings, one of President Thomas Jefferson's slaves and the mother of six children who historians suspect were his, the Washington Post reports. The WWII-era bathroom that was apparently built over where Hemings slept, close to Jefferson's own bedroom, has been slowly pulled apart by archaeologists based on coordinates provided by the third president's own grandson. The work is revealing the 18th-century plaster walls and brick floor, and...

    When history buff Garrett Redmond bought a filly out of the Colonial Affair mare Jefferson's Secret, he thought he had the perfect name: Sally Hemings. Hemings was a slave of President Thomas Jefferson and might have been his mistress. Although the exact nature of their connection is in dispute, Hemings and Jefferson are thought by some historians to have had a decades-long relationship and at least one child - and possibly more - together. "To name a horse after someone is an honor," said Redmond, owner of Ballycapple, a farm in Paris. "I have a horse here named after my...

    UNWITTING BETSEY MORE WRIGHT by Mia T, 10.22.03   But Purdum found a quote from Betsey Wright, Clinton's former chief of staff, worth repeating. Wright, who coined the term "bimbo eruptions," said Clinton's womanizing had "nothing to do with sex" and everything to do with "this inferiority complex . . . I think he's spent his entire life being scared that he was white trash."
