Donald Trump Becomes Dictator of California With Help From Crassus:

Calexit, unlike the Spanish situation with Barcelona and Catalonia in rebellion and ready to declare independence which is all too reminiscent of the Spanish Civil War, would make a good movie. You could have a fantasy what if. It could be quite humorous. It could also make an excellent action thriller all about Donald Trump and the Californians.

But the reality of the situation in California is that the Calexiteers won’t be able to get the proposition on the ballot. There are limits to initiative and referendum! As soon as they try, it will be legally challenged, and the objection will be upheld in court. Even the Ninth Circuit will not be able to help them t here. And since such an initiative to seek independence for the Gold Rush State is illegal, the permission to put it on the ballot won’t be granted. If it got to the point where the attorney general of California had to decide whether to put such a proposition on the ballot, he could be impeached if he agreed to put it there and let Californians vote on it. At the very least he could be disbarred.

What is most amusing is that Calexit is motivated by a dislike of Trump and if they exited they would give Donald Trump more power, not less. He could appoint the governor of California himself WITHOUT congressional consent for instance. He is the head of the army, navy, and air force all of which have bases in California. San Diego for instance is the home of the Pacific Fleet. Get it? Donald Trump is the commander and chief of the armed services. He would be in charge of rebellious California almost as if he were a dictator. This is what would make a good movie.

Trump could even bring in his trusted aide who has secretly been living in the Lincoln Bedroom of the White House ever since last December 2 when I first reported it in my blog post “Trump and Crassus”. Marcus Crassus, the Roman, could go riding into California on his horse and chariot to take up residence in the governor’s mansion as the imperial legate and give sage advice to Trump about how to be Dictator of California Roman style.

Is Christopher Columbus a Fascist?

On a more serious note, I was looking up statues of Christopher Columbus online and came across one in Barcelona, Spain of all places. Would you believe that the article said the people over there in Europe want to pull the Columbus statue down? Have you heard about this? This is a very large,prominent statue of some artistic merit showing Columbus pointing out to sea. Apparently they don’t like the idea that Columbus oppressed native peoples in the New World either. But I said to myself why would there care over in Spain? When I read some more it said that the Catalans in Barcelona think of themselves as a “native people” too. They think they are being oppressed by the government in Madrid. They call Columbus a “Fascist” as well as Madrid and look back to the Spanish Civil War where they were on the losing side. This sounds like trouble to me, more trouble than anything going on in the United States about Columbus statues. For instance apparently Seattle has replaced Columbus Day with Indigenous Peoples Day, but how many Italian Americans live in Seattle? Here it is just silly political correctness if it is anything at all.
