Trump Threatens to Cut Federal Funding to California

Donald Trump is threatening to cut funding to California.
Breitbart News editor, and professional asshole Milo Yiannopoulos was scheduled to speak about federal funding to UC campuses at U.C. Berkeley. 

A peaceful group of students assembled to protest the decision to give Yiannopoulos a platform, but the protest became violent when 100 outside agitators arrived, setting fires and causing $100,000. in damage to the campus. The school cancelled Yiannopoulos’s engagement. 

Conspiracy theorists are speculating that this was all set up in advance to give Trump cause to defund a state that he claims lost him the popular vote. 

I’d like to take that conspiracy theory one step further. California is being petitioned in order to bring to a vote a proposal to strike language in the California State Constitution defining it as “an inseparable part of the United States of America”. Cal-exit already has the support of 1 in 3 Californians. 

What is not getting enough media attention is that Louis Marinelli, the person at the helm of the Cal-exit movement is a Russian who not lived in the U.S. in 10 years. My question is: Could the entire Berkeley event have been the work of Russia? 

“As the sixth largest economy in the world, California is more economically powerful than France and has a population larger than Poland. Point by point, California compares and competes with countries, not just the 49 other states.” ~ Louis Marinelli, Yes California Independence Campaign

If Trump cuts federal funds to California, a well run state that subsidizes other poorly run states, that might be enough to sway a majority of California residents that California would be better off as a separate nation. Russia would love to see the U.S. break into pieces.

Just a thought.

  1. I recently seen some of this protest and the responsibility of the school on this website. IN one of the comments some one replyed to me I should look up the “Black Bloc”. What I found startled me. I had no idea this faction was out there causing this much trouble just for the “fun” of creating chaos. If California does split off, which I think is slim, I hope they have a kind inauguration policy as I would move to live under that style of progressive standards. Hugs

    1. Black Bloc definitely isn’t helping the left–I wonder if they think they are. I watched on television as they set a car on fire during the inauguration. It was a slow process. Lots of people stood around watching and taking videos, but no one stopped them. I don’t get it. Peaceful protests like the women’s march get the point across so much better.

      1. You are correct. I also don’t get it, it ruins the message we are trying to put out. Someone told me on another blog they try to use other protests to cover their actions. They want to cause property damage and injuries. SO I don’t think they are working on behalf of the left, I think they are working for themselves to just do something they seem to enjoy, destruction and chaos . They get a real joy out of breaking things and causing hurt to others and as they can’t just go do this without major problems, they wait for a demonstration or protest and then crash it and do their stuff and run. Letting the other group get blamed for it. Hugs

  2. I definitely don’t think that Trump should cut funds on one of the most productive states in the U.S. – it is totally uncalled for. Threatening California in this way, and even following through with these threats, will certainly not be good for the U.S. economy. Thanks for sharing this post, it’s really engaging and I look forward to reading more of your posts! Please check out my new blog ‘Everyday Economix’ – I would appreciate it a lot. Thanks again and have a great day.
