The Governor needs to be impeached ASAP. This is dangerous thinking.

Brown's action is a violation of the Constitution:


"No State shall, without the Consent of Congress, lay any Duty of Tonnage, keep Troops, or Ships of War in time of Peace, enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State, or with a foreign Power, or engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.

Article I, Section 10, Clause 3


Compact Clause


The Framers of the Constitution had little difficulty seeing that combinations among the states, or any foreign-affairs activities undertaken by the states, were so fraught with danger to the union, that none should be allowed unless Congress consented. Comparable prohibitions had already been contained in the Articles of Confederation, but the Framers chose somewhat stronger language in the Constitution to assure national supremacy in foreign affairs and in relations among the states.

If I was in a manufacturing business I would move from California immediately. Actually, I would NEVER do business in California. It is a hostile environment to all business.

However, if this could lead to California leaving the U.S. it might not be that bad of an idea. That state is full of libtards.



Ya, let's alienate California and Mexico while we are at it. Then when we go to the grocery store we will not be able to afford anything other than raman noodles.

You do business in California every time you go grocery shopping.

While the foreign Compact Clause applies (as a constitutional matter, if not always in practice) to a broad range of formal and informal agreements between a state and foreign countries, the Supreme Court has determined that the domestic Compact Clause applies only to a narrow class of state agreements (those that establish binding obligations and, typically, multistate administrative agencies). Moreover, in United States Steel Corp. v. Multistate Tax Commission (1978), the Supreme Court declared that state compacts require congressional approval only if they "encroach upon the supremacy of the United States."


Those that establish binding obligations.

This is non-binding.

It says right there in the second paragraph the agreement is NON-BINDING. So what are you freaking out about??

It's just an agreement to try and work together in renewable energy markets and lowering green house gasses which is non-binding and therefore makes no real difference.

The worst you're going to get if you fail to live up to the agreement is a "Shame on you" from the people you made the agreement with.

You're title, like always it seems, is completely false and misleading.

The part you are referring to is in regards to agreements between states, not other countries.

I believe you may be correct. Will have to look in to it more.

Heh. State sovereignty this, state sovereignty that...

Until a state wants to do something good for our planet then suddenly it's treasonous.

Oh Pfft...

Agreeing on working together to reduce emissions is important, Chinas smog sullies western (read that California) skies all the time. Its in both our interests to try and work out solutions to reduce that.

You can lump this non-binding agreement in with the 340 other Foreign State Agreements made by 41 other states since 1955.

No worries. It will be most likely ignored.

They never sent a letter.

All they did was publish it on the internet.

According to our constitution, California has every right to do such as a sovereign State.

They have no intent on creating their own nation. Wanting to combat global climate change with global partners is in no way illegal or a sign that civil war is looming. Take your sick fantasies to breitbart where they belong

Quoting to up the odds of someone actually reading it instead of hyperventilating like a weenie. Non-binding agreements are nothing new, states have been doing them for over 60 years.
