Federal Framework Being Set Up To Arrest Sheriffs (Update)

April 9, 2013, by Ken Jorgustin

Secret Service to Arrest Sheriffs

Colorado, and apparently Texas (next) are being targeted with an attempt to set up a federal authority framework that will enable Secret Service agents (not just those guarding the president), and others of the U.S. Secret Service including uniformed division officers, physical security technicians and specialists, and other ‘special officers’, to arrest and remove an elected sheriff for refusing to enforce the law (or anyone breaking the law).

The bills being introduced defines law as including any rule, regulation, executive order, court order, statute or constitutional provision.

Why are they doing this? Here’s why…

Original post (March 30)…

It would establish federal authority police powers in a State, enabling an enforcement arm reporting directly to the president (the Secret Service).

It would potentially lead to enabling the president / executive branch to theoretically override the actions and preventative measures that are now being taken by many States throughout the country who are trying to preserve 2nd Amendment gun rights and who are prohibiting the enforcement of unconstitutional law passed by Congress or pushed by executive order.

As some of you may know, a growing list of sheriffs (more than 340 so far) across the country have expressed that they will not enforce a Washington mandate that clearly violates the Second Amendment.

Many State laws to preserve gun rights are gaining momentum. States include Montana, Ohio, Kentucky, Idaho, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Texas, Arizona, Michigan, Utah, and New Mexico.

However, in Colorado, Senate Bill SB-13-013 has evidently just passed the Senate, and will be heading on to its potential signing by the governor, giving police powers and arrest authority to the executive branch of federal government (Secret Service) within the State. In Texas a similar bill has just been introduced in the State legislature.

The president and vice-president Biden have been actively pursuing state legislatures and pushing for passage of the bills. Obama is scheduled to visit Colorado in just a few days. “Colorado is a pawn for the Obama-Biden plan,” and then on to the next… at least those that won’t fall into line.

Quoted from Rep. Lori Saine of Colorado, who says she believes the bill is intended to be used as a foundation for later legislation that will surrender still greater control to federal officials…

“There’ve been so many explanations for the reasons they really need this bill passed. So what is it really?” “I believe it is intended to be used for setting up a framework so that at some other time they could expand it to possibly include being able to arrest a sheriff who is refusing to enforce unconstitutional laws. They would justify it by saying that since we’ve already given the Secret Service this ability, why not give them just one more?”

It is a full court press by the executive branch of the federal government to empower themselves even further by inserting themselves as police authority within the state, to eliminate opposition.

UPDATE 1:

The votes have been cast and the results are in… The Colorado house of representatives and state senate have passed the bill. The results are as follows…

Again, while the bill may appear innocuous to many people, the fact remains that it establishes the executive branch of federal government (the president), police authority within the state. While most people assume that their government will always use their authority for ‘good’, history proves that this is not always the case in the end…

UPDATE 2:

More than half the Sheriffs in the state (Colorado) are planning to file a lawsuit against recent gun control laws passed by Democratic lawmakers.

“The legislators ignored the will of the people and passed these unconstitutional gun laws and they need to be held accountable for their decision.” Sheriff John Cooke told WND.com

As part of the current legislative session, Democratic lawmakers, who hold the majority in both houses, rammed through a series of gun-control measures pushed by the Obama administration, all signed by Democrat Gov. John Hickenlooper.

David Kopel, the attorney who will be handling the lawsuit says “We are still working out the details, but there is a very solid case here…we do feel we have a variety of strong legal claims that are worth bringing to court.”
