The Jefferson Messenger - Ed 11 Vol 2

The Jefferson Messenger 

Edition 11 . June 9, 2018 . Volume 2


NEW DATE - JUNE 14, 2018

See You in Sacramento – New Court Date
Rain or Shine, Canceled or Not – Be There!

Thursday, June 14, is the new date and new time of 2:30 pm for the hearing, for the argument by the State of California to “Dismiss with Prejudice” the Citizens for Fair Representation (CFR) lawsuit against Secretary of State Alex Padilla.  Due to a conflict on June 15, the original date scheduled for the hearing, the judge has advanced the hearing to this new date. The hearing will take place in Courtroom 3, at the Robert Matsui Federal Courthouse, 501 “I” Street, Sacramento.

There has been great anxiety for all of us, awaiting the court’s decision regarding CFR's request to have their case heard before a 3-Judge Panel, that was due to occur on June 1. The Judge vacated the hearing and instead of oral arguments, the attorney's submitted their briefs electronically. At this time, it is felt that the June 14th hearing will not be canceled or rescheduled, but as experienced in the past and once again now, there are no guarantees. Therefore, rain or shine, hearing or not, WE are GOING to SACRAMENTO.

MINUTE ORDER issued by Courtroom Deputy C. Schultz for District Judge Kimberly J. Mueller: Due to a scheduling conflict and on the court's own motion, the Hearing as to Defendant's Motion to Dismiss (ECF No. [42]) set for 6/15/2018 is VACATED and ADVANCED to 6/14/2018 at 2:30 PM in Courtroom 3 before District Judge Kimberly J. Mueller. Filing deadlines remain unchanged.

We need an army of Jeffersonian's to show up at the courthouse around 1:30 pm on Thursday, June 14th. Seating is limited in the hearing room; it is our intention show up armed with flags and signs surrounding the courthouse. However, flags or signs are not allowed inside the building.

Numbers count, because outside the courthouse, we will be holding a Press Conference with CFR attorney, Gary Zerman and spokesperson for State of Jefferson, Mark Baird.

So start calling all Jeffersonian's in your county, coordinate car pools, or charter a bus, and show up at the Court House. Let's show Sacramento we are standing up for Representation, Justice and Liberty.

Editors Note: To learn more, click the link to hear Attorney Gary Zerman explaining the hearing process.

We need to break up the state, if for no other reason but the restoration of Liberty to those parts of the state with the ability to restore It to their citizens.  23 Counties have already signed Declarations and Petitions to withdraw from California under Article 4 Sec 3 of the US Constitution.  Further, Citizens for Fair Representation (CFR), (Jefferson Formation C4 and other plaintiffs), has filed suit in Federal Court against California, (CFR v Alex Padilla), for lack of representation and dilution of vote.

The founders of California intended and instituted a form of legislature which grew with population.  The Legislature capped itself in 1879 at 80 Assembly and 40 Senators.  150 years and 39.5 million people later not one single representative has been added to the people’s branch, while the other two branches of government have grown like unaccountable and uncontrollable weeds.  As Thomas Paine put it, representation must grow with population,  so that every part of the colony remains adequately represented.  That representatives remain connected to those they represent and are never allowed to develop an agenda separate from their constituents.

Article 2, Sec 1 Cal Constitution.......All political power derives from the people.  We need to instruct people that protection of Rights is the only proper and just role of government.....anything else is “wrong”.

This is nothing less than a battle between our Rights vs the Wrongs of a corrupt and unaccountable government.

If our lawsuit prevails, we will yank the rug out from under status quo politics in California and perhaps the Nation, see 28 USC 2284 or McManus V Shapiro.

Our main stumbling block is a corrupt federal judge who has consistently refused to order a three judge court.  If we manage to get past her, this case will be heard by the Supreme Court.  Our case is starting to attract attention.  We need more!!

We can restore Liberty,  but we need the help of anyone with expertise and knowledge of media, law or Constitutional law.  Spreading our message is key.  We need to reach people outside the north state.

Jefferson Declaration Committee spokesman
June Primary sets stage for November General

The June Primary election, brought some good news for Jeffersonian's and California's conservative base with candidates in run offs in the Governor's, Secretary of State and Attorney General's races. There was also good news for candidates and voters in many of the local elections in Jefferson Counties.

We also found that the 2018 election season has brought more attention and recognition to the Jefferson Movement. Some of the County committees had candidates’ forums where local and state candidates were invited to speak  including Mark Meuser, candidate for Secretary of State and Steve Bailey, Attorney General. This generated a whole new audience for our cause.

Moving forward to the November General election, we encourage everyone to attend the candidate forums to personally find out who these candidates are and ask those questions that concerns you most.
We Must Step Up Our Game

For the next five months we must step up our game even more so, not only to get our candidates elected, but also to repeal the gas tax and reject Tim Draper's 3-way State Split initiative. At the same time, we must educate people about what the Brown administration and state legislature have signed into legislation that kicks in in 2020 and beyond.
  • GAS TAX - 2020 brings you Cap and Trade, with more gas tax increases of about .75 cents more per gallon. All for what, to line the pockets of the Brown administration and the state legislature, or, perhaps to fund the twin tunnels and the bullet train to nowhere.
  • WATER ALLOWANCE - Brown recently signed new personal water consumption restrictions into law: SB 606 and AB 1668, which mandates a “daily allowance” of 55 gallons of indoor water use, per person. For those who need a visual, that is an amount of a typical household large fish tank; and by 2030, the indoor allowance is set to drop to 50 gallons per day..there will be outdoor water allowances based on regional differences in climate and leak rates for pipes.
  • WATER TAX - Beginning in 2027, districts that exceed their annual water allowance will face fines of $10,000 per day during drought emergencies. Umhmm. I wonder just where (or to whom) will this money go – perhaps to line the pockets of the Brown administration and the legislature? 
Brown stated, “we have efficiency goals for energy and cars---and now we have them for water.” In other words, more regulations & laws, to create an even bigger bureaucracy while removing more of your liberties. Since when have goals become legislature? That’s right, our God given rights to basic sustenance such as water has been jacked by our government; and we allowed this because we are gleefully sitting at the kiddy table. Now our basic water rights have become a funding source, talk about government overreach! What is your tipping point? When is it time join the adult table?

So my friends, we need to not only take back California, but we must roll up our sleeves and open our wallets, setting a goal to form the new State of Jefferson by 2020. Tell Californian's there is a better way and it is called the State of Jefferson. It is time to Stand Tall and Speak Up for Liberty.
