Forget all that talk about Russia hacking the election to put Donald Trump in the White House. A campaign calling for California to secede from the Union has opened an “embassy” in Moscow, and seeks recognition from the Kremlin, Truth Revolt reported Monday, citing the Russian Times.
According to Truth Revolt:
Louis Marinelli, leader of a Brexit-style movement called Yes California, made the announcement Sunday at a press conference, according to Russian Times. He wishes to “lay the groundwork” for bilateral relations between an independent California and Russia. The embassy is not for dealing with diplomatic issues, however; it is intended more as a cultural center to educate Russians about California’s history, boost trade ties, and promote tourism.
“We’re opening up a conversation in Russia and it’s [to] a much smaller degree to the Americans when they wanted their independence from the British empire,” Marinelli explained. “They went and pursued military assistance and so on and so forth. We’re not doing anything like that.
“We’re not requesting military assistance from Russia,” he continued. “We’re certainly going to request recognition of our independence and recognition of our  independence referendum result, as we’re going to request that the entire international community recognizes the results.” Yeah, good luck with that.
But they’re not not requesting military assistance from Russia — yet.
Today the Embassy of the Independent Republic of California opens in Moscow. Address: Г. Москва, ул. Клары Цеткин дом 4, Офис 324. #Calexit

“Marinelli has previously filed several ballot initiative proposals relating to secession for California. However, none of them has been successful in gathering enough signatures to go to a public vote,” RT said.

In the latter half of the video, one can see posters lionizing the socialist dictator of Venezuela, Fidel Castro and Che Guevara.
Wonder what message those images are intended to convey? Or do we really need to ask?
- Sorry, California — Secession is (Still) Illegal
- California speaker rejects national unity, promises to fight incoming Trump administration
- California to regulate cow farts to combat global warming
