On a Collision Course for Civil War and It Will Begin In California

Over five years ago, I was chosen by two military sources to break the real story behind Benghazi and how close Obama came to being exposed by Ambassador Chris Stevens and two command military officers in the Middle East. Two military officers had conspired to rescue Stevens but were stopped and arrested and their careers were ruined.

I had no supporting evidence, other than what I was being told by two trusted and high-ranking sources. They grew very impatient with me because I sat on the story for 10 days. These two men were trying to accomplish what the 2 field commanders failed to do, which was to expose the abject criminality of Obama and Clinton. After 10 days of consternation I published the story and within 3 months, the story was validated by many. I am in a similar position at this very moment. And I learned a very valuable lesson 5 years ago, which is, don’t sit on a big story.

One of the biggest fears for a journalist stems from being proven wrong. And in stories like Benghazi and the story I am about ready to reveal, the events are so fluid that even if the early reports are accurate, the fluidity of the situation could lead to a totally different outcome and this could lead to a loss of credibility. In this instance, I say to hell with caution and it is time to tell the story that is coming from a trusted source. I will even name the source and I am beginning to get partial and fragmented confirmation from parallel events as well as other sources.

I want to be clear that I am asserting that a civil war could very well break out in California against what they call federal overreach. The participants, initially, will be California Democratic politicians, including Governor Jerry Brown. ISIS, MS-13, the Mexican government, China, former Obama administration officials are deeply involved along with George Soros. This series will appear to present some very outrageous claims. Therefore, I have decided to start with information that is mostly background to build the case that what I am being told is factual and America is about to enter a new  and dangerous era.

Will America’s Civil War Begin In California?

Last night, during my show, former CIA clandestine operative, Robert David Steele, was asked if Trump would have to resort to martial law in order to effect arrests and prosecution of the Deep State. Mr. Steele answered in the affirmative.

After The Common Sense Show aired on March 11, 2018, a trusted source, Paul Preston, called me as I was finishing dinner. He informed me tht he thought it was likely that Civil War II was going to begin in California and we would not have to wait long for this event to occur. Paul Preston is one on the primary leaders of the New California movement that is in process of creating a 51st state which is breaking away from “Commiefornia”.

New California has 40 counties in full support of this movement. They are breaking away from radical California government that believes they do not have to follow federal law and intend on breaking away from the US as an independent country. This has traditionally been known as the CALEXIT movement is fully endorsed by Governor Brown and most of the Democrats in the California Legislative Assembly. Also in support of the movement is China, the Mexican Consulate, the Mexican government, George Soros, various crime families in Asia as well as former key members of the Obama administration including Eric Holder (spokesperson), Loretta Lynch and closet support from the Clinton Foundation and the United Nations.

The lawlessness of California is off the charts. The unpunished murder of Kate Steinle by a several times deported illegal alien angered the country. Mayor Schaaf of Oakland obstructed justice when she warned illegal aliens that ICE was going to conduct a raid in Oakland. Here is the story behind Mayor Schaaf’s criminal actions.

Many Democratic state and local officials are in outright rebellion against federal immigration authority. In fact, on a national level many Democrats are proposing as part of the 2020 Democratic platform, that ICE be eliminated as a federal agency.

The Democrats in California have drawn a line in the sand and are defying federal authority. A showdown is coming and it is not going to be a show down resulting in civil disobedience, according to Paul Preston, members of Fox News and the leadership of the New California movement, this is civil war.

Phase One

I have warned, through this site, on several occasions that the unbridled admittance of MS-13 into the United States along with members of ISIS would constitute a 5th column which could bring both California and major parts of the United States to their knees. Here is a partial list of references in which I documented the dangerous presence of MS-13 on our soil in great numbers and the onslaught of their growth contines unabated.

I made this video about the continuing illegal immigration of MS-13 on January 24, 2018.

On August 1, 2017, I published a summary, with links that went back as far as 2010 to document the unwarranted presence of MS-13 in America. This article summarizes no less than 5 previous articles I have written on the subject. This is an excellent reference that traces much of the history of the terrorist invasion that has been going on our southern border for years.

MS-13, along with ISIS has been implicated in the Vegas Massacre and I documented this last fall:

Vegas Is Only the Beginning- This is Antifa Along with MS-13 and ISIS Sympathizers


CALEXIT: Open Rebellion Against the United State and the Planned Violent Overthrow of California

Unlike my Benghazi story, I have a lot of supporting documentation to support the fact that a civil war is coming and will start in California. The preparations are coming from both sides of the conflict.

On September 19, 2017, I reported the following:

According to Paul Preston, reports are circulating that numerous state legislators from California, including “California Senate pro tem Kevin de Leon), State representatives from Florida, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Utah and Colorado have been meeting with members of La Raza, the Mexican government (consulate), Mexican Mafia (“La EME”), California’s violent Mexican gangs (Nortenos /Sureños/ Sur 13), La Familia () and religious leaders (Catholic / Jesuits) to come up with a plan to separate from the United States as well as the above mentioned states”. Governor Brown, his aides, and the Bank of China have been in attendance in several of these meetings designed to sever California from the US. Further, The Common Sense Show has learned, independent of Paul Preston, that George Soros is bankrolling some of the costs associated with this movement. In addition to Soros, the United Nations and the Chinese government have had representatives at the CALEXIT meetings.

Paul Preston had an embedded sources at some of these meetings and the drug cartels along with MS-13 pledged “extreme violence” if CALEXIT was not successful. If one wonders how serious this movement is, consider the fact that CALEXIT opened an embassy in Moscow in 2017. The following is a picture of the CALEXIT embassy which was opened in Moscow.

On December 19, 2016, I published this video which covered the opening of the CALEXIT embassy in Moscow and an explanation of CALEXIT just as the movement was gaining steam.


Send In the 101st Airborne

There was a very telling article written by Mark Tapscott that appeared on Fox News’ Laura Ingraham’s site.  

In the article Tapscott interviewed Univesrity of Tennessee Law School professor, Glenn Harlan Reynolds. Reynolds asserts that New California is the old West Virginia. West Virginia became a state because Virginia declared its independence from the Union in 1861. Even more telling in article, Reynolds states taht Trump will likely have to send the 101st Airborne to California to quell the open rebellion.

As far back as January of 2017, Paul Preston and I publicly speculated that President Trump would have to send in the troops with tanks to California to meet the rebellion. When you visit the link, you will see that Youtube took down the related video which is almost as telling as the event itself.


It is at this point that the dots would be connected. However, in this instance, this plot is far to complicated to summarize at this point except to say that rogue California and former Obama cabinet Democrats, foreign influences and terrorists are preparing to unleash hold hell after standing up to President Trump over the immigration issue.

Also, indictments are being unsealed against the Deep State and this has accelerated the timeline for inevitable conflict.

The US military has been conducting urban warfare exercises in Phoenix. I have been told that they are primarily concerned with IED’s, this speaks to ISIS, attacks upon the public (MS-13 Vegas Massacre style) and snipers in tall buildings.

Paul Preston is in contact with very powerful people and when he called me last night, he made it clear he could not come on my show and he may not be talking to me for awhile given what he will be allowed to say.

In the next article, I will be introducing sequence of anticipated events who all will be involved and what the threat will be to every American.

    I am speechless after reading this article. It gives those of us who are aware, confirmation that we are not crazy when we attempt to educate the public on the horrors happening in our world today. Most do not want to know. This is their protection from reality and this will be their undoing in the end. Thank you Mr. Hodges for putting yourself out on a limb to educate the ignorant masses. Sending you energy to assist you in your work and prayers for your safety. This comment is for your eyes alone…..

    Dave, you are doing a hell of a job. Even of the info given is inaccurate or partially inaccurate its a hell of a lot more accurate then the LAME STREAM MEDIALESS!

    Thanks and please continue. Additionally u have told the readers of your position ergo a lot of fact and some conjecture. It goes with the territory of being fluid in a fluid situation.

    Right wrong or indifferent this reader backs you!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Craig Mouldey March 12, 2018 at 7:22 am

    The characters involved in this plot should have already been arrested. Now, it looks like it is going to become a bloody mess if there is any hope of fixing it. I’m sorry for the loss of your young friend, Josh Coy.

  5. grayfox114 March 12, 2018 at 7:40 am

    Good story, and for what it’s worth, it hurts! I am an expatriate from Kalif, fleeing the high taxes and the crazy politics to the more acceptable Pacific NW lifestyle……….I believe it’s quite possible that a civil war of sorts will start in Calif, as the politicians there have spent several years laying the ground works for just such an event. All the pieces are nearly in place……And here’s the rub:

    I spent years being the tin hat conservative, the end of the worlder that said the sky was falling. Mostly my views, beliefs and warnings fell on deaf ears. I was laughed at, talked about and ridiculed, but so what, I was prepped! I have continued to sound the alarm by connecting with old acquaintances there, and it seems like not much has changed. Most people there, even those that despise moonbeam and his henchmen are of the “go along to get along crowd.” Eat me last………. They meekly accept all the unconstitutional laws that are passed, which the politicians exempt themselves from; They spout “FROM MY COLD DEAD HANDS” while giving up the means of defense, or modifying them to make them about as effective as a muzzle loader, and they allow the politicians to continue their unfettered destruction of the state. All the while saying “They’d better be careful, people are going to get pissed!” Pissed on some more, is more like it! I’m sure there are a goodly number of patriots in Calif, and I’m sure there are many, many, gun owning conservatives there, far outnumbering the illegals, MS 13 gangsters and other “tools” of the administration. But they are bound by and still adhere to rules, the rule of law! The opposition if you will is not so constrained, they have only one rule, and that is “Win!”

    I harbor a real fear that these people,good Calif citizens, who have for so long been sunshine and front porch patriots, will be silent and inactive until such time that it is too late! Hard to dig up something when you’re being ordered to leave. I also think they are placing far too much trust and faith in their law enforcement agencies! With few exceptions, law enforcement in the state has been subverted and brainwashed by those with nefarious goals and intentions. They will do whatever their masters order them to, at least initially! This is especially true in larger cities and counties, but it is fairly prevalent in smaller areas; It is so often true that the ptb have their paychecks and retirements in mind instead of the welfare and rights of the people they purportedly serve. I worked with many and conversed with many other leo’s that were all about the badge and the job, constitution be damned, and this is very disheartening! They knew what they were taught and rarely investigated beyond that.

    As Churchill said: ““If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed;
    if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may
    come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival.
    There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”

    I truly believe the time for peaceful change in Calif has passed, but the time for violence from the left is fast approaching. While the people there might not be overtly inclined to openly fight, they won’t willingly, I hope, roll over when push comes to shove. On the same hand, they have for so long allowed someone else to carry their water, they might have lost the will to fight, just as they are losing the means. We shall see!

    Truly a serious situation on our immediate horizon. One of the main reasons that these anti-American scum are so emboldened is because Mr. J. Sessions has done squat- all to arrest or indict any of these deep state players and therefore the signal is sent out that for them lawlessness is a reward. Mr. Sessions, if you can’t even arrest a piece of crap Oakland Mayor for her lawless behaviour then it is truly over for America. I also believe that if this Calexit is that serious of a threat then it is time for some “black-ops” “whitehats” to be deployed and situated to begin counter-measures against these traitors. And I don’t think Trump will be around when this crisis hits as I believe he has a serious problem that is not political and will force him out. We are in trouble.

  7. Len March 12, 2018 at 8:38 am

    If push comes to shove,the ports would be bombed. Then the military will invade destroying the leadership and corporate support for them. The defunct leadership will be robbed of their fortunes and the previously disenfranchised will be empowered. There is historical precedent for that, US history books call it the civil war and the so called reconstruction that followed. There was nothing civil about it!

  8. ruggerfist March 12, 2018 at 9:30 am

    Name names, brother. It would make it easier for us to watch the traitors and take retribution if and when it starts. I can cover NM, CO and west TX if needed.

  9. Nick March 12, 2018 at 9:48 am

    The preparation for this has been going on for at least 20 years as far as I know.
    Several years ago I worked in a place where most of our business was geared toward the law enforcement community.
    I knew police uniformed, plain clothes, and undercover. I knew CIA, DEA, and FBI. Because I had a working knowledge
    of equipment, and its proper employment and deployment I was usually asked to take care of special customers.
    This one particular morning, about 20 years ago, I was reading a story that was buried in a newspaper. It was the story
    of how a container filled with AK’s had been uncovered at a California port. Can’t remember what port it was. An FBI
    agent I knew came in later that day, and as we were talking I broached the subject of the container. His response was
    that this had been going on for sometime. He told me that the Chinese were sending the weapons here to arm the gangs.
    I did come across a story a few years back about another container that was uncovered in California. I’m sure there have
    been more.
    I hope this lends some credence to what you are hearing.

  10. Scott March 12, 2018 at 9:57 am

    It’s fairly well established that the federal union, not unlike “Hotel California” is somewhere you can check out any time you want, but you can nev er leave.
    Just Say’n.

  11. Wb March 12, 2018 at 11:15 am

    Conservatives have only themselves to blame. You keep backing down and putting your heads down. The left sees this as weakness. They understand all they have to do is hit the streets and start burning and killing people and they will get their way. They may be right. California was once the 8th largest economy on the planet and still is the most valuable property in North America. Allowed to break away America loses access to the Pacific and could no longer be considered the world’s major superpower. Of course China will bankroll this effort, it’s money well spent. The turmoil created would be such as to give China a free hand in Asia. Few people remember it was China caught giving street gangs AK-47s back during the Clinton era.

  12. Deric Federman March 12, 2018 at 11:28 am

    What a bloody muddle this article is — seeming to conflate this Paul Preston and his Calexit group with Gov. Brown, Soros, Obama, the UN! They’re supposed to be about to launch Civil War against whom, exactly? And what side are we, the reading audience, suggested to take? Absurd to take the side of that cast of scum and filth — but what is the other side, the USSA?

  13. Jackie Puppet March 12, 2018 at 1:02 pm

    If we’re about to go to civil war and the US military is called in, let’s hope they also round up some key players in Silicon Valley, namely those who work over at Alphabet (Google/YouTube), Facebook ,and Twitter, and “disappear/indefinitely detain” them, per the NDAA. They’ve had every chance to make things right, but chose to appoint themselves “online overlords” instead (feel free to use this if you want, Dave).

  14. Dan Adams (@artillerycrew77) March 12, 2018 at 1:53 pm

    Seems their plans are being implemented, I just read bombs have been mailed in Austin Texas and have gone off killing several and injuring several others,lock and load people a revolution is coming.

  15. JC March 12, 2018 at 5:54 pm

    Give me a break Dave. You conservatives are always talking about Texas leAving the Union, and now that CA wants to do it they can’t. Which one is it? Can they or can’t they. Funny how John C. Fremont, an illegal alien from the USA, made a revolution in CA to proclaim the CA Republic. But now illegal immigration is a problem, but it sure was not when Fremont was there. Same thing in Hawaii. It was its own kingdom, got too many illegals from the USA and then became a part of the USA.

  16. NEW March 12, 2018 at 5:55 pm

    Well we knew plan of new world order to trace all peoples and what you are doing..New world army is coming we hope before CALEXIT quake hit california so we can see if still wanting CALEXIT.

  17. VVV March 12, 2018 at 8:07 pm

    I don’t see a problem with CA seceding. That’s a lot of Blue electoral votes wiped out, win-win.

  18. Savannah March 12, 2018 at 8:43 pm

    I wonder if the three recent bombings in Austin, Texas are related? As in ISIS-like attacks meant to takeover the southwest.

  19. Blade March 13, 2018 at 1:59 am

    Well patriots clean your guns and get ready. There is no room in this country for trash like MS13.Antifa or ISIS pig eaters let alone traitors like Brown Soros and their like. I for one will not lie down like a whipped puppy. ISIS and MS13 bleed too.

  20. Kathy March 13, 2018 at 5:16 am

    Great article, I heard the Military helicopters several nights ago!! Here in central phoenix, dogs went nuts all night….will be praying for you Dave and for all those who are trying to stand up for Truth. God bless us all!

  21. Malcolm Rudd March 13, 2018 at 7:35 am


    I would like to know who the State representatives from Florida is by name. I live in Florida and I don’t approve of this if this is true. Paul Preston commit; “According to Paul Preston, reports are circulating that numerous state legislators from California, including “California Senate pro tem Kevin de Leon), State representatives from Florida, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Utah and Colorado have been meeting with”.

  22. Tinfoilhattt March 13, 2018 at 10:54 am

    @ Deric Feldman-

    While Dave Hodges is known for a writing style that would benefit from a bit of independent editing both for clarity and typos, I believe that he made it fairly clear near the beginning of this article that there are TWO movements, one intent on forming “New California” and another termed “CALEXIT”.

    It appears that the former is NOT part of CALEXIT and likely would not exist were it not for the forces at work which are behind CALEXIT.

  23. Political Defect March 13, 2018 at 12:49 pm

    Article forwarded to President Trump so that he can begin planning action and the possible recall of Military Veteran Retirees, and to insure that all branches of the US Military are ready, along with the Militias and the National Guard Units!
    It is important to recognize at this juncture that ALL men and women are members of the Militia.
    If you own a firearm, prep it!
    If you have military gear, check to see that it’s serviceable.
    Get body armor!
    Insure that you have proper secure and fortified places to HQ from.
    Most of all, contact the White House and let President Trump know that you are all behind him, and that this will have to be a Joint Effort!
    It won’t just be California; this problem will pop-up in the southwestern states, Florida, and the Northeast!

  24. Vietkonggook March 13, 2018 at 2:19 pm

    Get ready folks, this could trigger a big event to other states and the rest of America as we know… The commies are not going to give up that easily….Again, the ideologies of socialism communism globalism nazism fascism etc are all created by the international banking mafia to divide and conquer us into their One World Govt … So keep frosty ….

  25. MadMagyar March 13, 2018 at 9:45 pm

    Well, at least the gang members will be easy-to-id targets. Looks like I’ll be headed back home to help liberate my beloved state from the evil that’s been invading it for the last 50+ years.

  26. Wb March 15, 2018 at 10:38 am

    How many liberals would join this effort at overthrowing this country? Let’s count them. First, we have the thousands of protesting high school students wanting to ban guns. Several years ago we had millions of illegal aliens protesting in the streets. More and more we have Muslims, pro-abortionists, socialists, anarchists, and blacks, all wanting their share of the action. We have millions at universities across the country who think conservatives should be done away with, led by thousands of college professors who think only evil of our forefathers who brought this great nation to fruition. All together, this forms one powerful army, who, if properly armed and equipped, could indeed topple the republic. All that would be needed for this to happen would be for people like us to do nothing more than post our opinions here, instead of taking action. You may make fun of these groups, but once they take to the streets and start taking property, somebody is going to have to stand up and stop them. Will that someone be you? Time to ask that question folks.
