The Tuesday November 9th, 2016 historic vote for President Elect Donald Trump has sent seismic cultural and civil shock-waves throughout the nation to the point there have even been calls for the direct overthrow of the United States Government. Leaders of such organizations as CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) whose head, Hussam Ayloush, Tweeted for the people to bring down the American regime, al-la an Arab Spring movement, have certainly helped to stoke the boiler of civil discontent. As protests and riots have erupted across the nation to dispute the latest election, it would appear our nation faces it’s greatest social divide in 155 years since the election of Abraham Lincoln. In a twist of historical irony, it is once again predominately the American Democratic party refusing to concede to the lawful election of a highly unpopular Republican President elect, who recently had shattered the status quo of his own party, and sought tolead a national social revolution.
Frighteningly similar to that fateful election is the current Democratic Party’s’ intention to promote civil disruption, civic violence and even open calls for Secession of States from the Union. Nowhere is the Secessionist threat more real and immediate than in California, long a bastion of Socialist Progressives and their ideologies. Since that fateful November night social media outlets such as Facebook have exploded with calls for California to withdraw from the Union. The important truth American citizens and California Voters must quickly understand, is this is no knee jerk reaction to the election. The social media saturation of calls for #Calexit are the fist strike of carefully designed, coordinated, prepared assault intent on prying California and potentially the West Coast out of the Union of States. Although it has morphed itself several times, whether known as, Yes! California or Sovereign California, #Calexit has lain dormant for almost five years awaiting the 2016 election to strike, regardless of the Presidential victor. Take the statements of Louis Marinelli, head of #Calexit, referring to a possible Trump victory;“It’s a double-edged sword,” “It will help our momentum but we don’t want to issue ill will to the rest of the country. But both Trump and Clinton represent the oligarchy. Our group recognize both candidates have reason to cause California to leave.”
So just who is #Calexit and it’s leadership?
At the head of the table sits Louis J. Marinelli, President of Yes! California (now #Calexit) originally from Buffalo, New York. In October, 2007, Marinelli moved to Samara, Russia to work as an ESL teacher in a private language school after earning a TEFL certificate. Six months later, Marinelli accepted a new job teaching English for a competitor with a new school opening in the city of Kazan in the Islamic republic of Tatarstan, a part of the Russian Federation 500 miles east of Moscow. It was in Kazan in 2008 that Marinelli met his future wife Anastasia, whom he married in 2015 in San Diego, California. In 2009, Louis and Anastasia relocated to Saint Petersburg, Russia so Anastasia could accept a scholarship to attend a prestigious university there. Marinelli began working for another private language school as an English teacher and became a student himself at Saint Petersburg State University, the alma mater of Russian presidents Vladimir Putin and Dmitry Medvedev. Although he initially considered giving up his U.S. citizenship to remain in Russia permanently, citing disillusionment with the United States government and political system, Louis and Anastasia came to live in the United States together in the summer of 2011.
The lead spokesman for Yes! California now (#Calexit) is Marcus Ruiz Evans a key liaison between California State Legislature and the Federal Government for the last decade with direct ties to the “La Raza” movement that seeks to reclaim the “Lost Provinces” referring to the American Southwest and California surrendered to America with the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo that concluded the Mexican-American war. Ruiz Evans is also lead author for Mikazuki Publishing House, an Islamic publisher based out of Japan tied to the Sasakawa Peace Foundation. Mikazuki translates as “night of the 3rd moon” or literally “the Crescent Moon” the symbol of Islam.
During it’s incarnation as Yes! California the organizations bank accounts remained dormant until a few months ago when donations began to flow from organizations traced back to front groups for George Soros and the Sasakawa Foundation. Unfortunately, at the time of this publishing those financials records have been removed from the California Secretary of States website, prior to our ability to obtain hard copies of the records.
For those unfamiliar with the Sasakawa Peace Foundation it is the legitimate face of the Ryochi Sasakawa financial empire. Sasakawa has deep claws into California, it’s politics and Jerry Brown Specifically. Ryochi Sasakawa was a Japanese warlord who funded a private mercenary army that sacked and looted Western China during the 1930s-40s. He was the also man behind the rape of Nanking and instrumental in the establishment of the Japanese puppet state of Manchuko. Ryochi was also Japans chief delegate to Italy and the Catholic Church during the war years. A war criminal slated to be hanged for his crimes at the end of WW II, he was pardoned by the United States and began work for the CIA in South East Asia as an ardent anti-Communist. Sasakawa became one of Japans most powerful “Zaibatsu” (a corporate warlord), running such corporations as Sanwa Bank, Mitsubishi and others. He also was quietly acknowledged as the head of the Yakuza. Ryochi also donated vast sums to the International Monetary Fund, the United Nations and established the World Health Organization (a statue of the man still sits in the W.H.O.’s headquarters). Known throughout his life as the “happy fascist” he was also a close personal friend and business partner of former California Governor Pat Brown. Pat Brown was responsible for putting together the banking interests that would come to issue loans to Royal Dutch Shell in Indonesia to open the lucrative oil fields after Indonesian President Sukarno (who liberated Indonesia from Dutch Colonial Rule) was overthrown by General Suharto. Ryochi Sasakawa provided the guns and troops for the coup. Pat Brown established two banking conglomerates for this project. One Pat Brown controlled outright based in California, the other based out of Hong Kong that Pat
had 50% share in, the other 50%, Ryochi Sasakawa. Upon the overthrow of Sukarno and the opening of Indonesian oil fields under the supervision of Brown and Sasakawa, then Governor Edmund “Jerry” Brown established the California Air Resource Board to regulate oil refining and Carbon Emissions in California. The newly formed CARB agency’s first regulation detailed the allowable sulfur content in crude oil prior to refining in California. Coincidentally the only oil in the world that met that standard at the time was Indonesian Oil. Ryochi was also the initial funder of the California Bullet train. The very first contribution to the project has Sasakawa’s signature on it. It was one of his last acts before his death. Sasakawa left behind three sons who continues his work and vision of bringing forth a global facism. These are the men funding, Yes California. They are also tied into George Soros and his interests.
Since it’s inception the target date for #Calexit’s separatists has always been the year 2020. While hoping to ultimately be more successful, Marinelli hopes to be the Alex Salmond of California. Salmond nearly led Scotland out of the United Kingdom in 2014 through an independence referendum. While Salmond and the Scottish Independence movement ultimately failed, Marinelli had his hopes restored by the shock result of the United Kingdom leaving the European Union—known as Brexit. His dream of seeing a free, independent California Republic was renewed and led Marinelli to adopt the moniker “Calexit” over his organizations latest “Yes! California” incarnation.
While #Calexit is critical of National leadership and undoubtedly will find few friends at the Federal level considering the Republican dominance of the branches of power, the movement does seem to have powerful allies at the Sate Level. On Wednesday, November 09 the morning after the election California Senate President pro Tem. Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles) and California Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (D-Paramount) made the following statement:
“Today, we woke up feeling like strangers in a foreign land, because yesterday Americans expressed their views on a pluralistic and democratic society that are clearly inconsistent with the values of the people of California. We have never been more proud to be Californians. By a margin in the millions, Californians overwhelmingly rejected politics fueled by resentment, bigotry, and misogyny. The largest state of the union and the strongest driver of our nation’s economy has shown it has its surest conscience as well. California is – and must always be – a refuge of justice and opportunity for people of all walks, talks, ages and aspirations – regardless of how you look, where you live, what language you speak, or who you love. California has long set an example for other states to follow. And California will defend its people and our progress. We are not going to allow one election to reverse generations of progress at the height of our historic diversity, scientific advancement, economic output, and sense of global responsibility. We will be reaching out to federal, state and local officials to evaluate how a Trump Presidency will potentially impact federal funding of ongoing state programs, job-creating investments reliant on foreign trade, and federal enforcement of laws affecting the rights of people living in our state. We will maximize the time during the presidential transition to defend our accomplishments using every tool at our disposal. While Donald Trump may have won the presidency, he hasn’t changed our values. America is greater than any one man or party. We will not be dragged back into the past. We will lead the resistance to any effort that would shred our social fabric or our Constitution. California was not a part of this nation when its history began, but we are clearly now the keeper of its future.”
Add to this volatile mix the dissent of local civic leaders such as Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti who declared “If the first day, as president, we see something that is hostile to our people, hostile to our city, bad for our economy, bad for our security, we will speak up, speak out, act up and act out,” and Catholic Archbishop Jose H. Gomez who claimed “In the past couple days since the election … we have children in our schools who are scared,” Gomez told the congregation. “They think the government is going to come and deport their parents.”
“This is the first Western secessionist movement that worked, and I think that is going to be very profound,” Marinelli says. “Are you going to say to people in the freest country in the world (you) don’t have the right to self-determination?” The question of how California should govern itself has had an interesting history since its short-lived Bear Flag Republic in 1846. In Marinelli’s mind, California while becoming a Soveriegn Nation would have states of its own. With a national capital still based in Sacramento, the new California constitution would be more like the loose Articles of Confederation in giving more autonomy to each state, according to Marinelli. “We don’t have to let Sacramento be a national capital of California like Washington D.C.”
While “#Calexit” seems no more than a fringe political movement it has surreptitiously gained new interest with the election of Donald Trump. As a Democratic stronghold, California seems to be looking to turn to “#Calexit” to avoid the prospect of a Trump presidency. However this has been the plan regardless as Marinelli added that interest would rise with Clinton presidency as well, as the movement is about fighting the political elite in Washington D.C.—both Democrat and Republican. It is important for the California citizens to understand who these people are and who they seek to climb into bed with as they are no friends of our Nation, our State or it’s people.
