Oroville is a small city in Northeastern California, the part of the State that keeps trying to secede and failing because the parasites always get a veto. They just did another Thing! Should we care?
California town declares itself a ‘constitutional republic’ to buck Covid rules
By Dani Anguiano, 5 November 2021
A northern California town has declared itself a “constitutional republic” in response to Covid-19 health restrictions imposed by the governor, in the latest sign of strife between the state’s government and its rural and conservative regions.
The city council in Oroville, located at the base of the Sierra Nevada foothills about 90 miles from the capital of Sacramento, adopted a resolution this week stating it would oppose state and federal orders it deems to be government overreach.
“Ignore”, actually, not “oppose”.
OROVILLE CITY COUNCIL
RESOLUTION NO. 9001
A RESOLUTION OF THE OROVILLE CITY COUNCIL DECLARING THE CITY OF OROVILLE TO BE A CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC CITY
WHEREAS, the Constitution of the State of California provides that all people are by nature free and independent and have inalienable rights, including enjoying and defending life and liberty, acquiring, possessing, and protecting property, and pursuing and obtaining safety, happiness, and privacy; and
WHEREAS, John Adams, the second president of the United States, wrote, “the very definition of a Republic, is ‘an Empire of Laws, and not of men.’ That, as a Republic is the best of governments, so that particular arrangement of the powers of society, or in other words that form of government, which is best contrived to secure an impartial and exact execution of the laws, is the best of Republics;” and
WHEREAS, as Governor of the State of California, Gavin Newsom has abandoned the very principles he espoused as a mayor and a locally elected official in exchange for unbridled power and unchecked authority over the daily affairs of the citizens of the State of California; and
WHEREAS, during the coronavirus pandemic, Governor Gavin Newsom has issued a record number of executive orders, despite the fact that the declaration of emergency should have been rescinded many months ago; and
“Temporary emergency powers” never are. In fact, the lockdowns & mandates are getting reimposed in Commiefornia as I write, either because it’s humanity’s last, best hope against an implacable foe or because the Christ-hating globalists want to cancel Christmas again.
I might do my Christmas shopping in Oroville this year.
WHEREAS, at least one court of competent jurisdiction has ruled that the Governor has exceeded his authority in issuing the executive orders; and
WHEREAS, the members of the City Council of the City of Oroville believe in the separation of powers, individual rights, and the rule of law as outlined in the United States Constitution, including the freedom for local government to have local control over issues related to the citizens who reside within the City’s jurisdictional boundaries.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED by the Oroville City Council that the City of Oroville is declared to be a Constitutional Republic City.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED by the Oroville City Council that any executive orders issued by the State of California or by the United States federal government that are overreaching or clearly violate our constitutionally protected rights will not be enforced by the City of Oroville against its citizens.
Fine, stirring rhetoric… that had needed to be said for a long time… but…
Oroville leaders said the designation was a way of affirming the city’s values and pushing back against state rules it doesn’t agree with, although a legal expert said the designation was merely a gesture and did not grant the city any new authority.
…”you and what army?”
And that’s where we are at today. Oroville hasn’t done anything to prevent State/Federal agents from walking into their city and laying down their illegal, foreign laws. The next logical step is for Oroville to create and authorize a militia of the People to fight against those outside agents on the government’s behalf.
Some wags would call that a civil war but I prefer the globalist term “police action”.
Tensions have existed throughout the pandemic between the rural north and California’s leadership, which has been among the first to implement lockdowns, mask mandates and vaccination requirements.
In Butte county, fierce opposition to Covid lockdowns and school closures drove support for recalling the state’s governor, Gavin Newsom, with 51% of voters in the county backing the ultimately failed effort. Newsom’s policies, however, appear to have worked and the state had the lowest Covid infection rate in the US last month.
Last year, Oroville refused to enforce state requirements prohibiting indoor dining. Butte county, where Oroville is located, declined to recommend a mask mandate earlier this fall, even as cases surged and a a local medical center reported treating more patients than at any other point during the pandemic.
And look! They survived defying the experts!
And Florida survived defying the experts! And Texas! And South Dakota!
And Scandinavia! And fricking Africa! And the other countries who did just fine until they began vaxxing their citizens to keep them safe from that which didn’t threaten them!
EVERYBODY who defies the experts ends up fine and healthy!
Oroville either took the first step on a long road to glory or they’re trying to salvage the holiday season for one more year. I approve either way.
