Silicon Valley tech elites are pushing for California to secede from the United States and become a sovereign nation following Donald Trump’s election as President of the United States.

Shervin Pishevar, co-founder of Hyperloop and Uber investor, tweeted on election night that if Donald Trump won he would be “announcing and funding a legitimate campaign for California to become its own nation.”

Shervin on Twitter: 1/ If Trump wins I am announcing and funding a legitimate campaign for California to become its own nation.

2/Most patriotic thing to do is to questioning idea of a federation of states & calling a new constitutional convention for systemic change

3/It’s the most patriotic thing we can do. Country is at serious crossroads. We can reenter the union after California becomes a nation.

4/As 6th largest economy in world, economic engine of nation, provider of a large % of federal budget, California carries a lot of weight.

5/We need to have serious national dialogue about our culture, values & rampant sexism, racism and hate that Trump campaign has exposed.

6/ Calling for a temporary withdrawal of support during the dark Trump Presidency. Re-entry after a constitutional convention convened.

7/Removing Electoral College would be one of changes needed. Small states with little diversity shouldn’t determine Presidency.

  1. Well…If they want to go, let them go. Lets build a huge jigsaw so we can cut them from the map and set them adrift. Good riddance.
    Surfs up…have a nice day…uhuh uhuh uhuh…!!!!

  2. “Silicon Valley tech elites are pushing for California to C and become a sovereign nation following Donald Trump’s election as President of the United States.”

    So what is wrong with this part of the sentence? “Silicon Valley tech elites are pushing for California to secede from the United States…”, this part is okay. So on to the next part, “… become a sovereign nation”. Ahh, that is what is incorrect.

    The states did not stop being sovereign nations when they created the general (what we call the federal) government to be the states representative in dealing with mostly foreign affairs, and a few other things so that treaties agreed upon would bind each state to the same agreement, etc. The states only delegated part of their powers to the federal government, that is in writing – the Constitution of the United States of American (state powers already delegated from the people to each state when each state was created) . (FYI – Nor did the people delegate all of their own authority over matters concerning themselves to the states or to the federal government.)

    James Madison: “The States then being the parties to the constitutional compact, and in their sovereign capacity, it follows of necessity, that there can be no tribunal above their authority, to decide in the last resort, whether the compact made by them be violated; and consequently that as the parties to it, they must themselves decide in the last resort, such questions as may be of sufficient magnitude to require their interposition.”

    Thomas Jefferson: “The government created by this compact (the Constitution) was not made the exclusive or final judge of the extent of the powers delegated to itself; since that would have made its discretion, and not the Constitution, the measure of its powers; but that, as in all other cases of compact among powers having no common judge, each party (the people of each state) has an equal right to judge for itself, as well of infractions as of the mode and measure of redress.” (short version)

    Justice Scalia: “It is incontestable that the Constitution established a system of “dual sovereignty”…. Although the States surrendered many of their powers to the new Federal Government, they retained “a residuary and inviolable sovereignty”…. Residual state sovereignty was also implicit, of course, in the Constitution’s conferral upon Congress of not all governmental powers, but only discrete, enumerated ones. Article 1, Section 8, which implication was rendered express by the Tenth Amendment’s assertion that “[t]he powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people”. The Framers’ experience under the Articles of Confederation had persuaded them that using the States as the instruments of federal governance was both ineffectual and provocative of federal state conflict. The Framers rejected the concept of a central government that would act upon and through the States, and instead designed a system in which the state and federal governments would exercise concurrent authority over the people. The great innovation of this design was that our citizens would have two political capacities, one state and one federal, each protected from incursion by the other” – “a legal system unprecedented in form and design, establishing two orders of government, each with its own direct relationship, its own privity, its own set of mutual rights and obligations to the people who sustain it and are governed by it.”… The Constitution thus contemplates that a State’s government will represent and remain accountable to its own citizens. As Madison expressed it: “[T]he local or municipal authorities form distinct and independent portions of the supremacy, no more subject, within their respective spheres, to the general authority than the general authority is subject to them, within its own sphere.” ….This separation of the two spheres is one of the Constitution’s structural protections of liberty.”

    Justice Sandra Day O’Connor: “The Constitution does not protect the sovereignty of States for the benefit of the States or state governments as abstract political entities, or even for the benefit of the public officials governing the States. To the contrary, the Constitution divides authority between federal and state governments for the protection of individuals. State sovereignty is not just an end in itself: “Rather, federalism secures to citizens the liberties that derive from the diffusion of sovereign power.”

    Mack and Printz v. United States: “The Framers rejected the concept of a central government that would act upon and through the States, and instead designed a system in which the State and Federal Governments would exercise concurrent authority over the people. The Federal Government’s power would be augmented immeasurably and impermissibly if it were able to impress into its service – and at no cost to itself – the police officers of the 50 States… Federal control of state officers would also have an effect upon the separation and equilibration of powers between the three branches of the Federal Government itself.”

    So what does Shervin Pishevar, the “co-founder of Hyperloop and Uber investor” show us about himself? He never bothered to learn what our legitimate government is – and it is NOT a “democracy”. He is willing to make proposals on the basis of knowledge that he seriously lacks; that any who follow him are the proverbial “blind following the blind”. What kind of leader is that?

    In running a nation, ignorance at any level is NOT bliss. When the people themselves are a part of their government; are required to be the enforcers of the type of government they have as is required of those of our nation, then it is even deadly. He (nor anyone else) has no excuse for not at least reading the US Constitution as it is a very short document. I can understand being reluctant to read some state Constitutions because they are long and wordy (and this is coming from one you all know who makes long comments). But it is our duty as Americans to know what the contracts that those who serve within our governments are under, as it is our duty to be trained in all arms used by the military so we can defend our nation from ALL enemies – domestic and foreign – when needed.

    Repeatedly he says the words the “Most patriotic thing…”. the most patriotic thing anyone who loves this nation can do is to READ the US Constitution. If you want to stand for our legitimate government, also read the framers and the debates when it was founded.

    God Bless and Stay Safe All

    If there were never intended to be action to defend the Constitution from those who are domestically attempting to destroy its power and authority, why would each Oath require it of those who take the Oaths?

    Chief Tecumseh: “When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.”

  3. I hear that “NY Oathkeeper”! 65 miles from Orange to NYC and you’d think you flew to another planet.

  4. We should promote their departure. All the whining snow flakes can then move to CA; thereafter live in perpetual misery. CA is surround by high country. It will be easy to box them in as it will become a 164,000 sq mile no gun zone..They will lose all the federal funding/spending that keeps them financially afloat. They will self destruct in their own soup of hate. Crime and chaos will prevail. “Can’t we all just get along?” immortalized on their collective headstone.

  5. It might be a good idea to let California go if they want to. Let the good folks in “Jefferson” decide if they want to do something different. The US has a schism that argues for some sort of solution and hopefully not that of 1860. Since a new state can be brought into the union, under the constitution, it stands to reason other states can exit. The tenth Amendment underscores that. The debacle of the civil war only proved that superior fire power prevailed. It did not alter the fundamental constitutional question of secession.

  6. Los Angeles, Sacramento and San Francisco are where the malignant tumors have entrenched. These are cancerous extremities that the rest of us have watched destroy this state. Though I can certainly relate to the “let it go” statements, blanket inclusion of those of us that fight here come across as offensive. If the Marxist cancer that is California’s affliction is allowed to permanently establish a base here the rest of the states will domino in their demise. Consider the tentacles of Marxist liberals that have already moved out or California and afflicted other states, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Colorado et al. We in the heartland (Jefferson) of this state need help not insults.

    The way I look at it, I see a dangerous ‘pincer move’ developing with the entire west coast, north eastern states and now a route in the center of the country consisting of New Mexico, Colorado and Illinois that have established strongholds of Marxism cancerous (mob rule) democracy just waiting to slam shut on America once and for all. Stand and fight is the only option.

  7. Let them go. Declare war against them, and watch them fold faster than France did with Germany. Then put in place military rule like we did over Okinawa in WWII. Once the place is straightened out, allow them to start governing themselves in a more respectable manner.

  8. Let California secede. By geography, most of California is Republican, and voted fro Trump. Only the big cities are Leftist strongholds. Thus, if California secedes, it has implicitly sanctioned the concept of secession. So any county that chooses to secede from “”Californiastan”” may do so at will, and rejoin the USA. That will return most of California to the USA. And of course “Californiastan” will be a small separate country, subject to US tax and immigration law.

    New Silicone valleys and Hollywoods can easily be built inside the areas of California that remain within the US. Very quickly, the population of “Californiastan” will drain back to the USA. Once “Californiastan” is broke (as all authoritarian socialist states eventually become), “Californiastan” will be empty land, suitable for pasture.
