California Could Cut Off Feds In Response To Trump Threats

January 29, 2017

California CapitolSAN FRANCISCO – The state of California is studying ways to suspend financial transfers to Washington after the Trump administration threatened to withhold federal money from sanctuary cities, KPIX 5 has learned.

Officials are looking for money that flows through Sacramento to the federal government that could be used to offset the potential loss of billions of dollars’ worth of federal funds if President Trump makes good on his threat to punish cities and states that don’t cooperate with federal agents’ requests to turn over undocumented immigrants, a senior government source in Sacramento said.

The federal funds pay for a variety of state and local programs from law enforcement to homeless shelters.

    I don’t know that California wants to get a p—ing match started with this president. It could turn ugly pretty quickly.

    The point is America has immigration laws. Those laws need to be enforced. Everyone who is in America illegally is breaking the law. I don’t understand why politicians are harboring lawbreakers or why the citizens keep those politicians in power.

    You have to wonder what kind of idiots would live in a state like that , or are there no decent people that live there at all. What a waste.

  • Ted Crawford

    They want to secede, I say good reddens! That would go a very long way towards eliminating our illegal alien problem! The only two caveat’s I would require is that ALL their politicians MUST surrender their American Passports and that they be forever banned from entering America! And that no trade between Del Norte de Mexico and America ever be allowed!

  • Thomas Burlew

    We should just kick California out of the US and then we won’t have to worry about the Anti-American Leftist misfits that live there! See if they can live on their own with out OUR Support!

  • Betty

    Watch as the money sent to the land of nuts and fruits dry up. They will fall in line. Go President Trump!

    • Rodney Steward

      Hopefully the nuts and fruits will dry up and blow away!!

      • CCblogging

        If California manages to succeed from the union, they will be begging for money within 6 months. Nothing but left wing bed wetters in southern California. I feel sorry for the saner northern Californians.

        • Thomas Burlew

          Well said. Great description.

    As the state struggles to cover retirement benefits, deferred infrastructure maintenance, outstanding general obligation bonds, unissued bonds, and lease revenue bonds, it also needs to find a way to cover the $8.8 billion it owes to the federal government after borrowing $10 billion to cover the state’s unemployment insurance fund.

    With the state’s real debt now passing the $443 billion mark, the Mercatus research shows California will inevitably have to deal with economic shocks or a long-term fiscal crisis if it doesn’t take drastic measures.
    They left that out of the article!

    One has to admit that this is an interesting proposition. Suppose the so-called officials do figure out a method by which money that flows from California to Washington can be cut off. It seems to me if that were the case then the Fed should close all Military Bases in the state and lock them down to the extent no one can enter since it is in-effect the property of the US Government. Any other Government Functions should be shut down also including the pass through of all materials and other items which have to be inspected by Customs Officials. California has several problems besides the stupidity illustrated in the article. Ever since the War for Southern Independence and the adoption of the 17th Amendment to the Constitution, States Rights and the possibility to Secede from the Union have been to a large extent eliminated. Since that War, we are essentially one unified Country and simply pay lip service to the borders of the various states as they have the same status as the states in Mexico or France or any other country in the world where there are territorial divisions within the country. That War was the last gasp of the idea of each State being a separate entity and sovereign in and of itself but bound together with other sovereign entities for mutual benefit and defense but able to separate if dissatisfied with the current state of things in the so-called union. Current example is California and the rumor about Texas, although Texas can survive as a Republic but it is questionable about California.

      State officials suffering from impacted cranium. The muck migration from the ears to the brain is evident.

        What Brain are you talking about , the few cells that might be there they sit on them.

        • Pete

          That’s where they keep their cranium.

    Californication, the protector of everything perverted. A state that has been taken over by Satan and when you remove morality, integrity, and common sense, you are on the broad road!!

    • Rodney Steward

      I totally agree, the most God forsaken, immoral place in America, and NY being on it’s heels!!

      • Retired

        That would include all Major Cities that have been destroyed by Democrat leadership if you can call it that .

    I still say extend the wall from Mexico up along the Californicate state line straight up to the pacific cutting the top off the state and add it to Oregon.

    • Rodney Steward

      Oregon isn’t much better, it’s turned very far left!!

      • MyRoseHasTHORNS

        Only a few URBAN centers are far left. OR and WA are mostly Republican or Conservative in their Eastern regions (farm land) and outside their major cities, some areas are liberal but NOT socialist.

        Only overpopulated, unethical Liberal blocks branching out less than 100 miles give the impression that the ‘whole state’ has gone bad.

        Ex: WA is rabidly Liberal up by the border (Bellingham), King County (Seattle area) and Vancouver (Right across the bridge fro Portland, OR)

        Seattle area supported Bernie not Hillary

        I was amazed though by the vast amount of Trump signs, bumper stickers and trucks, followed by the Anti-Hillary bumper stickers. It gave me faith that the quiet majority was finally waking up or ready to fight back.

          Well that’s great, thanks for setting me straight!!

      You might just as well go to the Canadian Border.
