Election exodus: Canadians invite 4 states to secede from US

In a gesture to ease the pain of Americans unhappy with the presidential election result, a group of Canadians have invited the residents of California, Oregon, Washington and Nevada – where Donald Trump lost to Hillary Clinton – to secede and join Canada.

“Dear California, Oregon, Washington – I’m sure we can work something out if you want to join Canada,” tweeted Chad Harris, a reporter from Kamloops, British Columbia.

“To the west coast of the United States, if you want to you can all become Canadian Provinces, since you voted closer to the experiences we have as Canadian,” Andrew Mercier, from Calgary, wrote on Facebook. Therefore WA, OR, NV, and CA you are now provinces, also bring all the goodness that you have to us!!!” the Canadian added.

Douglas Cole from Beaverton, Oregon, even wrote an ironic open letter on the subject.

“Dear Canada,
We, the fine people of Washington, Oregon, and California, wish to secede. We offer our people, our land, and our resources to you, Oh Canada. We promise not to fight this, but instead, to fight FOR this. Although, you being…you know…Canadians, we’re confident in a polite transition as we become your fourth territory, Washorefornia.
Or Calorington.
We’re fine with either.
Just please take us.
Pretty please?”

READ MORE: Calexit: California mulls becoming own nation in wake of Trump presidency

California, the most populous state of America, could become the ‘Golden Nation’ if an independence referendum gets passed. Emboldened by California’s strong economy and high population, a so-called ‘Calexit’ could gain traction following Trump’s election.

California could become an independent country in 2019 when voters hit the polls again.

The Yes California website states: “We advocate for peaceful secession from the United States by use of an independence referendum to establish a mandate, followed by a nationwide campaign to advocate in support of a constitutional exit from the Union.”

The Yes California Independence Campaign believes that being a US state is no longer serving California’s best interests. On issues ranging from peace and security to natural resources and the environment, it has become increasingly true that California would be better off as an independent country.”

“In 2016, the United Kingdom voted to leave the international community with their ‘Brexit’ vote. Our ‘Calexit’ referendum is about California joining the international community,” the website concluded.

VIDEO : BUSTED! Vegas Hillary Staff Caught on Hidden Camera Committing VOTER FRAUD

The Hillary campaign is one big racketeering ring.

Collectively speaking, these people have no ethics and no morals.

It’s very much a “The Ends Justify The Means” mentality.

And like their candidate, they shamelessly break the law and the rules, with seemingly no punishment whatsoever.

That’s the case in Las Vegas, where team Hillary is literally knowingly breaking the law and committing VOTER FRAUD.

Oh, and bonus, they laugh about it.

I would imagine that their boss, Hillary is also having a hearty laugh.

Below is the undercover video blowing the lid off of these sick liberal animals.

Foreign ‘dirty bomb’ responders train in Nevada…

MERCURY — In today’s world it could be called the University for Dirty Bomb Studies.

Founded in 1998, it was a niche at what was then the Nevada Test Site for emergency responders to learn how to deal with disasters caused by weapons of mass destruction.

Since then, about 180,000 firefighters, police officers, public safety officials and hazardous materials technicians from all corners of the United States have completed courses that teach them how to detect, prevent and react to an unthinkable act involving radioactive or hazardous materials to harm civilian populations.

In a few months this Center for Radiological/Nuclear Training will enter a new, international dimension as police officers from eastern Europe and elsewhere outside the U.S. descend on a one-of-a-kind training facility in Area 1 at the Nevada National Security Site, 85 miles northwest of Las Vegas.

Known as “T-1,” the site is unique because it was ground zero for the Apple-2 nuclear test, a large-scale civil defense experiment in 1955 that used an atomic bomb placed on a tower to blow up buildings and structures in “Survival Town.” The blast delivered an explosive yield equivalent to 29,000 tons of TNT, or 8,000 more than the nuclear blast at Nagasaki, Japan, in 1945, the second and last time a nuclear weapon was used in combat.

The Apple-2 detonation left a higher-than-normal level of background radiation in the immediate area that, while safe to access 60 years later, is ideal for students to learn how to use hand-held and personal radiation detectors to interpret their readings from a previously contaminated area.

“The T-1 training area is unique and cannot be replicated,” Nevada National Security Site spokesman Darwin Morgan said in an email Friday.

“It is an important asset for first responders in the United States — and eventually from other countries — because it provides them practical hands-on experience to learn about radiation, contamination and decontamination,” he said.

PROJECT MERCURY

The first wave of foreign students is expected to arrive in September for Project Mercury, a $500,000 pilot program that will bring first responders from Interpol, the world’s largest international police organization.

While the cost of the security site’s counterterrorism effort is $22 million funded annually by the Department of Homeland Security, the $500,000 for the inaugural Project Mercury trial course comes from the Department of Defense, a Pentagon official said Friday.

He said the money covers training for “a small contingent of foreign first responder personnel” sponsored by Interpol.

The official, a spokesman for the office of the Secretary of Defense, added that future funding avenues exist in “several programs that build partner capacity to deal with the full range of threats associated with” weapons of mass destruction.

One, he said, focuses on teaming with other nations to ensure there will be safe and successful responses to nuclear incidents.

Other Defense Department programs are aimed at reducing the threat posed by the movement of radioactive materials across borders, and building the capacity of countries to reduce threats within their borders or region, including countermeasures to thwart smuggling of nuclear materials.

Project Mercury comes at a time of heightened awareness about radioactive materials from nuclear medicine sources, research reactors or even power reactors falling into the hands of terrorists, said Brian Richardson, training supervisor for the National Nuclear Security Administration’s Counter-Terrorism Operations Support Team.

“Currently several terrorist organizations are attempting to get radiological material for a radiological dispersal device, or dirty bomb. Others are actually trying to acquire a stolen nuclear weapon,” he said.

While a so-called dirty bomb wouldn’t erupt into a nuclear chain reaction, explosives could scatter radioactive material over a widespread area, requiring years to clean it up to make it accessible again.

Another fear is that terrorists in possession of special nuclear materials could detonate a device that exposes people to harmful radition that could kill or severely injure them, he said.

MILITIA RANKS GROW IN USA…

The militia movement is growing. See what drives members to join and train with one of Indiana’s largest militias.

David Nantz carefully pushed aside a grouping of bare branches at the tree line of Echo Lake Park, then stood still. He listened for movement, playing the role of the enemy attempting to infiltrate a base that had been forged by his men.

It was Sunday, training day, and the Indiana Volunteer Militia, one of the largest militias in the state, was practicing how to set up a patrol base and establish perimeter security. Their mission was to fashion a few shelters and secure the base before Nantz made entry.

In a real world scenario, Nantz said, when the grid goes down, you have to know how to protect yourself and your family.

Recent high-profile standoffs with federal law enforcement agencies in Nevada and Oregon, as well as a controversial appearance by a militia group during the police brutality protests last year in Ferguson following the shooting of Michael Brown, has soured the word “militia” in the mouths of many Americans.

But the militia movement is growing. According to a study published by the Southern Poverty Law Center in January, the number of active militia groups in the United States has risen by 37 percent since 2014.

To better understand why these groups exist, and what drives people to join them, IndyStar reporter Michael Anthony Adams was granted access to the Indiana Volunteer Militia, to give you an inside look at how its members train and prepare.

 

Shooting of Oregon occupier LaVoy Finicum justified – prosecutor

Capture

The Oregon State Trooper who shot and killed Robert ‘LaVoy’ Fincium, one of the leaders of the armed occupation of the Malheur Wildlife National Refuge, were cleared of any wrongdoing.

Finicum was killed January 26 when a convoy headed from the refuge to a community meeting was met by FBI and state troopers.

Two troopers shot Finicum in the back a total of three times, one of which pierced his heart, the Oregonian reported. A prosecutor ruled the shooting was legally justified, noting that Oregon state law allows the use of deadly force when officers believe that a person is likely to seriously injure or kill someone else.

Finicum had a loaded handgun in his pocket at the time of the encounter with law enforcement, and kept moving his hands towards that pocket. There was an Oregon trooper in front of the 54-year-old, the prosecutor said.

“All six shots fired by the Oregon State Police, the three into the truck and the three that struck Mr. Finicum, are justified,” said Malheur County District Attorney Dan Norris in a prepared statement. He noted that the shots were “in fact, necessary.”

However, the US Department of Justice is investigating an unnamed FBI agent who fired twice at the Arizona rancher, but didn’t report the shots. The four other members of the agent’s Hostage Rescue Team, an elite FBI unit, are also under criminal investigation for potentially helping the shooter cover up the shooting. Neither of the bullets struck Finicum.

The revelation was part of the release of the findings by a team of local investigators, according to the Oregonian.

In February, Finicum’s family said that he was “executed in cold blood,” and accused law enforcement of deliberately misleading the public about the events in late January. Three days after his death, the FBI released video of the shooting.

The Oregon State Police and the FBI planned the peaceful arrest of the occupiers for days, investigators said, adding that they plan to release police reports, interview transcripts, photographs, the autopsy report and new video to allow the public to evaluate their findings in Finicum’s death.
