Current events Federally and within California are spiraling out of control. I felt the need to pen a statement regarding these events and a few others that add context. I hope you will humor me be reading it. I also hope it motivates everyone here to redouble their efforts in getting this separation done. We are at a terrible crossroads in America, not just this state. Without a shining beacon of hope that all of us are working to provide, we may just slip into a worse scenario than many of us originally imagined when we started. That being said, the rest is copied for your consumption:
The Tuolumne County State of Jefferson recognizes the recent changes in California gun laws. We also recognize that those changes fundamentally distort the ability of Law Abiding American citizens to protect themselves from an out of touch Government.
California has found a way to disarm its citizens through ammunition restrictions and other legislative overreach. What this means is brought into sharp focus with FBI Director Comey’s statements regarding whether Mrs. Clinton should be tried in a court of Law or even subjected to Grand Jury review for violations of the Federal Laws appended to this statement.
The citizens of California, the little people, cannot be trusted says Sacramento. That, and Sacramento’s rapacious appetite for taxable income are ringing loud and clear as ever. This particular taking of Second Amendment Rights is interesting in its timing when compared to the crimes Mrs Clinton appears to have avoided facing justice for violating.
This is the most egregious, in your face form of aristocratic self aggrandizement and overt corruption since Marie Antoinette said “Let them eat cake”. This says in America, all men, all citizens are no longer equal. If you are part of the oligarchy, the self appointed “holier than thou” political apparatchiks, then you may freely choose to not participate in the laws that govern this nation. If you are contractor for the NSA who is worried that American civil liberties may be being violated, then you will be banished. If you are the head of the CIA and a retired General Officer with negative information about a member of the self appointed aristocracy, then you will fired and publicly humiliated for possessing low level documents. “For Official Use Only” in the desk drawer of one of the most secure rooms in America.
Mrs. Clinton violated her duties to protect the people of the United States while she served as the Secretary of State. What posterity will tell us in its review of the facts I suspect will include corruption and quid pro quo on a scale not seen in modern history. She effectively murdered Ambassador Stevens while ineptly trying to fake a kidnapping. Yes you read that correctly. Benghazi was, in my opinion, a set up. The Ambassador had been conducting a sloppy gun running operation with the same jihadi terrorists who later inadvertently killed him. The sloppy operation led to a proximity mistaken by Clinton and Obama for alliance with the jihadis. This narrative fit with President Obama’s need for a resounding victory at the polls for the upcoming election and hatched a foolish plan. The plan was that the ambassador would be “kidnapped” and it would be by the very folks he had been supplying guns to. They being a “friendly” sort of Islamist organization, would duly release Ambassador Stevens as soon as GITMO was emptied of the remaining detainees. A win-win situation for the politicians in Washington, specifically Obama. Hillary gets her super duper amazing job done at State Department by negotiating the freeing of a kidnapped Ambassador. Obama gets a victory lap for that and the emptying of Guantanamo Bay. Just in time to sweep the elections in 2012. Unfortunately some local contractors had not been read in on the script and actually believed that the Annex was under attack. Their fierce fighting and defense of the Ambassador quite possibly caused things to get out of hand for the undisciplined jihadis and their commander. God Bless the contractors.
But for Hillary Clinton, her ineptitude is only surpassed by her willingness to kill anyone who gets in her way. This is most recently epitomized by the strange death of John Ashe, former president of the United Nations General Assembly. Mr. Ashe died last week in a strange weightlifting accident just days before he was scheduled to testify against Mrs. Clinton in a corruption case. There are other problems with the story, the reports of a heart attack as cause of death when his throat is described as having been crushed. which was also determined to be the cause of death.
And one of the guns allowed to “walk” in the “Fast and Furious” program turned up being used in Paris attacks last year. Think about that for a minute.
Mrs. Clinton should have been subjected to a Grand Jury investigation, which would have independently reviewed the evidence gathered by the FBI. If sufficient evidence of a crime was present, the recommendation to prosecute would have been given and Mrs. Clinton would have found herself in front of a jury of her peers.
Instead FBI Dierector Comey stood up a straw man argument, knocked him down and failed the citizens of America. Along with Loretta Lynch who might also need to be the subject of an investigation after meeting with Mr. Clinton privately earlier this week.
So where does that leave us? The American citizens who remember what America stood for. We who demand our Liberty and Natural Rights be respected. We are the majority. We recognize The Author of the Law, we are not the recipients of its consequences based on our lack of political connectivity.
We do not condone doing business with jihadis, drug cartels or terrorists. We do not condone the lawlessness epitomized by the Clinton’s, and that is endemic within both political parties now.
We do not condone an apathetic, ignorant citizenry that has been disarmed and relieved of their desire for Liberty.
We support individual freedom, private property rights, the right to free speech, the free practice of religion, and the right to defend those things with deadly force with any weapon necessary.
Ultimately we support truth, in whatever direction that may take us.
The State of Jefferson needs your help if you believe the way we do. Check the calendar for the date and time of our next meeting.
