The purpose of this site is to facilitate a proper education for Sheriffs, their Deputies and other Law Enforcement and Military Persons.
So, the questions that need answering is: How is it that congress has written so many statutes beyond their authority? How is it that judges uphold legislation that legislators had no authority to write? How is it that lawyers counsel all government agencies and law enforcement to obey and enforce unconstitutional statutes? How is it that Sheriffs and other Law enforcement Officers enforce unconstitutional statutes? How can an Oath-taker be an Oath-keeper if (s)he does not know the Law? How is it that People obey unconstitutional statutes to their own peril, namely loss of Liberty? We were to be a nation of Laws under God, how have we become a nation of statutes under men? The answer is simply “we lost our way” because we are ignorant of the Law, and thereby lost the lamp upon our path, while government does what it does best, taking more and more power as our liberties continue to be nibbled away, until we find ourselves enslaved under corporatism. As Thomas Jefferson said; “If a nation expects to be ignorant and free in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.”
The United States Supreme Court gave us half of the solution to our problem when they said: “The general rule is that an unconstitutional statute, though having the form and name of law, is in reality no law, but is wholly void and ineffective for any purpose, since its unconstitutionality dates from the time of its enactment… In legal contemplation, it is as inoperative as if it had never been passed… Since an unconstitutional law is void, the general principles follow that it imposes no duties, confers no right, creates no office, bestows no power or authority on anyone, affords no protection and justifies no acts performed under it… A void act cannot be legally consistent with a valid one. An unconstitutional law cannot operate to supersede any existing law. Indeed insofar as a statute runs counter to the fundamental law of the land, (the Constitution) it is superseded thereby. No one is bound to obey an unconstitutional law and no courts are bound to enforce it.” Bonnett v. Vallier, 116 N.W. 885, 136 Wis. 193 (1908); NORTON v. SHELBY COUNTY, 118 U.S. 425 (1886).
The other half of the solution is to empower yourself through education and that is the purpose of this website. If you are like most People, you may think you lack the education to understand the law. Then we say unto you if you have understood what you have read on this page already then you can understand the law. As Thomas Jefferson said: (concerning Law -vs- statutes) “Laws are made for men of ordinary understanding and should, therefore, be construed by the ordinary rules of common sense. Their meaning is not to be sought for in metaphysical subtleties which may make anything mean everything or nothing at pleasure.”
Only the Sheriff can stop these encroachments but in order to stand upon the first half of the solution the Sheriff must first find his backbone in the second, education in The Law! Sheriffs are responsible for the actions of his Deputies, in that they too need a proper education. As we stated in the beginning the purpose of this site is to facilitate a proper education for our Sheriffs and other elected and appointed servants, because We the People need Constitutional Sheriffs who will protect our Liberties in our courts and our streets. We also will endeavor to connect Sheriffs with People in their counties who have the same desire to restore Law in government.
Thomas Jefferson said: “An enlightened citizenry is indispensable for the proper functioning of a republic. Self-government is not possible unless the citizens are educated sufficiently to enable them to exercise oversight. It is therefore imperative that the nation see to it that a suitable education be provided for all its citizens.“
