American Revolution: County Sheriffs vs. the Federal Government
These Sheriffs hold that the Federal government has no authority or jurisdiction over their citizens as per United States Codes 40 USC 255 and 50 USC 175 amended to 40 USC 3111 and 3112. Accordingly, the United States Supreme Court has ruled many times that the Federal government has no right to tell individual States what to do. One Supreme Court Justice, wrote, "States are not puppets to a ventriloquist Congress".
Is the Federal government of the United States of America so insane, so drunk with power, so out of touch with reality that they would actually gun down constitutionally authorized peace officers protecting the Constitutional Rights of citizens?
I think they are.
We have a supposed President who time after time, either ignores our Constitution or intentionally violates it with impunity and scorn. A willing Congress follows his lead. The US Attorney General flaunts his illegal gun running business. Federal employees brag about it. State Governors pretend there is nothing they can do. What Attorney General of any of the 50 States has made any statement objecting to the ongoing criminal actions of the Federal employees?
The men and women who will be attending the Sheriffs Convention are prepared to call the Fed's bluff and put their lives and careers on the line. And with each success story, more will fill their ranks.
Some States are already trying to eliminate their Sheriff departments. So what? The people of those States can just elect someone else to enforce our Constitutional Rights. Call that position anything you want, but all powers are granted to the people, not the elected or appointed Federal and State employees.
The Federal government has to be taught that their charade is over. Their Alice in Wonderland lifestyle is not going to continue forever. In their drug addled brains, they think it will. Let them think that. I'm sure Hitler was a bit surprised too, when we came for him. We know Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi were more than a little surprised. I guess these gangsters will be too.
We the People have to stand with these Sheriffs. We need to stand with them physically, as armed volunteer deputies. Let the Feds fire the first shots. Let them show the World what they really are: An out of control gangster government. And to the World, I will say quite clearly, "If they will do it to us, they will do it to you".
On September 23, 1779, Captain John Paul Jones, of the American colony's Continental Navy, when asked by the British Captain he was doing battle with, if he would surrender, is quoted as saying, "I have not yet begun to fight!" That may not be entirely correct.
Historians believe that what he actually said was, ""Ay, ay, we'll do that, when we can fight no longer, but we shall see yours come down first! For you must know, that Yankees do not haul down their colors until they are fairly beaten!"
And that is the position that, We the People, are in, once again.
