    Jefferson separatist movement split off into a new, 51st state? Almost anywhere you drive through Northern California, you’ll see green and gold signs, flags and banners heralding the arrival of the State of Jefferson, a separatist movement that nearly succeeded in 1941 and, more recently, has grown like a grass fire in the era of Trump. The signs feature “The Great Seal of the State of Jefferson,” a gold pan emblazoned with two X’s—Jeffersonians have long believed they’ve been double-crossed by big city politicians in Sacramento who take their money but ignore their concerns.
  • California Sheriffs Are Openly Protesting Their New “Sanctuary State”

    Back when California Governor Jerry Brown was still pondering the new sanctuary state legislation which was heading for his desk, we talked about the fact that the police unions had backed a version of the bill, but the state’s sheriffs were not onboard. Now that the measure has been signed into law, those same sheriffs are basically in open revolt, publicly protesting the changes and asking the United States Congress to step in. They justify this decision by declaring that the state’s citizens will be less safe because of these changes. (Free Beacon) California’s sheriffs are calling on the...

    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...

    Breaking up California Successfully amassing support in 21 California counties, proponents of the State of Jefferson movement took their petitions to the Secretary of State and the State Legislature Wednesday. Channeling Howard Beale, from the 1976 movie “Network,” State of Jefferson supporters might as well have chanted, “I’m mad as Hell and I’m not going to take this anymore.” And fed up they are. California’s northern most counties are suffering from a lack of representation in the state Legislature. Twenty Northern California counties have 6 state level representatives, while the southern 38 counties have 114 state representatives.

    The Sacramento Bee ^ | January 6th, 2016 | By Alexei Koseff
    Now tallying 21 counties among their ranks, supporters of the movement to carve an independent “State of Jefferson” out of Northern California plan to introduce a bill this session seeking sovereignty. Organizers on Wednesday turned in declarations for 15 counties, including Sutter, Placer, Nevada and El Dorado, asking the state to grant them permission to separate. Six others petitions – which were either passed by the county boards of supervisors or reflect signature-gathering drives – have already been filed. Jefferson proponents contend that their rural areas lack adequate representation in state government, which has led to over-regulation and environmental policies...

    In September, the Siskiyou County Board of Supervisors voted to secede from the State of California. "Many proposed laws are unconstitutional and deny us our God-given rights," said one attendee at the council meeting. "We need our own state so we can make laws that fit our way of life." A few weeks later, the Modoc County Board of Supervisors voted to join Siskiyou in the new state of Jefferson, voting 4-0 to leave California. The board votes didn't mean much legally -- the federal government and state government of California would have to recognize the new proposed state of...

They want other rural counties in Northern California and Southern Oregon to join them in the creation of a new state called the State of Jefferson.

    “Not good news ... but that's life. We all end up dead in the end ... it's what we do between birth and death that counts.” Those were the words of our friend, Larry Toelle, just days after receiving the news that he had only a short time to live. Having battled cancer for several years and thinking he’d conquered the beast, this came as a shock to all of us who knew and loved this fine American gentleman. We thought he had more time, that we would get to see him again, but when I got the email from...

    Siskiyou County -- Some folks around here think the economic sky is falling and state lawmakers in Sacramento and Salem are ignoring their constituents in the hinterlands. "We have nothing in common with you people down south. Nothing," said Randy Bashaw, manager of the Jefferson State Forest Products ...."The sooner we're done with all you people, the better." Talking about secession has been a quasi-joking conversational saw since 1941, when five counties in the area started things by actually declaring themselves - briefly - to be the state of Jefferson. But now, with the economy in trouble and unemployment soaring,...
  • Klamath-Siskiyou forests are tops (Boxer and her EnvironMENTAList friends are steeling our lands)

    Forests in the Klamath-Siskiyou region have been named among the biggest and best in the nation by Greenpeace in a report released this week. The area is known for its biodiversity and has the largest network of roadless wilderness in the Pacific Northwest, according to Joseph Vaile of the Klamath-Siskiyou Wildlands Center. But he said commercial logging, mining and off-highway vehicles pose a threat. Greenpeace says its 11 "keystone forests" should get greater protection since many of the nation's ancient forests are gone.
