Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi Is Free!

Andrew Tahmooressi

by Shorty Dawkins

Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi has been released from the Mexican jail where he spent 214 days. According to Fox News, “After 214 days in a Mexican prison, Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi returned home to Florida Saturday, having been freed Friday night after a strong diplomatic push appeared to help convince a judge to release the former Marine on humanitarian grounds.

And “After reviewing the ruling, Tahmooressi family spokesman Jonathan Franks said the judge acted on a recommendation from the PGR, the Mexican Attorney General’s Office. In that motion, the prosecutor “essentially withdrew the charges,” Franks said. Moments later, the trial judge issued an acquittal in Andrew’s case, calling for an “immediate and absolute release.

This is great news for Sgt. Tahmooressi and his family. After his long ordeal, which began when he accidentally crossed the border with guns in his vehicle, having missed the exit he sought, he was convicted in Mexican court for bringing guns into Mexico, in violation of their laws, Andrew is finally free.

You might think Tahmooressi’s troubles were over, but they might not be. As Marine Corp Times reports: Marine vet imprisoned in Mexico could face charges in California

In that report: “Marine veteran Andrew Tahmooressi’s legal problems might not end in Mexico.”

And, “If he’s driving around with multiple loaded weapons in a car, that would be a problem under California law,” said John Donohue, a law professor at Stanford University who has studied gun laws.

Donohue said Tahmooressi “very likely” violated California’s restriction on AR-15-style rifles. Those types of firearm are legal only if they are registered, according to the state attorney general’s office. The registration deadline, however, was in 2001 — Tahmooressi moved to California from Florida in 2014.

Either the district attorney in San Diego County or the California Attorney General could level the charges, lawyers said.

Lawmakers on Capitol Hill said recently that they expect Mexican authorities will release Tahmooressi in the near future. But American legal experts now say the former sergeant could face more charges once he returns to California for allegedly traveling through the state with loaded weapons in his vehicle.”

That this Marine veteran, who served his Country honorably, should even be under the threat of prosecution by California authorities, is abominable. California’s restrictive gun laws are in violation of the Second Amendment. Oath Keepers stands by the Second Amendment as being an Unalienable Right, not granted by our Government, but as a Natural Right, deriving from our Creator, and inherent in our very existence. The US Constitution specifically spells out our Inherent Rights, or Creator Given Rights, and specifically prohibits the Governments, both State and Federal, (as all States are party to the compact that is the Constitution, which created the General Government), from abridging those Rights. In fact, it is the obligation of the Governments to protect those Rights.

California authorities would do well to not attempt to prosecute Andrew Tahmooressi.

  1. I can claim a small part in Tahmooressi’s release,as I answered Tim Donnelly’s call for a demonstration when The President of Mexico visited Gov. Brown in Sacramento.We stood on the street outside,led by Tim and his bullhorn, and made the windows rattle with “FREE TAHMOORESSI!”.
    I can’t belive that T could have charges brought against him now, but if they are I’m sure Donnelly will instigate another agressive protest.

  2. Agree 100% Big Al. It’s about time! God bless him. And thanks Neil for what you did too! This President of our did absolutely nothing to help this fine young man! Our government should be ashamed of themselves. Liberal/progressives have no shame!

  3. @ Ron Jr., “This President of our…”

    That is the problem, Obama is not our president. He never qualified as a presidential candidate – he was put in as a “presidential candidate” (as was H. Clinton) in 2008. Since he was NEVER, nor can he ever be a US presidential candidate, he is NOT a US President.

    Thankfully we can take all he stole from us.

    Read Dr. Vieira’s “THOUGHT MUST PRECEDE ACTION”, http://www.newswithviews.com/Vieira/edwin255.htm He comes at this conclusion from a different direction and we BOTH have the same conclusion.

    Dr. Vieira:
    1) “… although Mr. Obama may have succeeded in gaining physical access to the office-space a legitimate President of the United States occupies in the White House, he never acquired legal access to “the Office of President”, because, not being “a natural born Citizen”, he was never constitutionally eligible, and is not now eligible, for that “Office”. For Article II, Section 1, Clause 4 of the Constitution declares (in pertinent part) that “[n]o Person except a natural born Citizen * * * shall be eligible to the Office of President”. If words have any meaning, a “Person” whom the supreme law of the land declares not to be “eligible to the Office of President” can never “gain access to” that “Office” in the sense of legally holding it or asserting any claim to it. The question then becomes, can an individual who is not legally in that “Office”…

    An individual who is not “a natural born Citizen”, and therefore is constitutionally ineligible in principle for “the Office of President”, can never assume the status of “President” legally. The most obvious and consequential practical reason is that such an individual cannot possibly take the necessary “Oath or Affirmation” which is a prerequisite to his “enter[ing] on the Execution of [the] Office [of President]”, because he knows that, being ineligible for that “Office”, he cannot possibly “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution”. First, his imposture as “President” itself constitutes an affront to the Constitution—that is, his “tak[ing] the * * * Oath or Affirmation” is in and of itself a violation of the “Oath or Affirmation”. Second, not being eligible for “the Office of President”, he cannot ever legally fulfill the duty of the President, set out in Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution, to “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed”. Were he legally capable of fulfilling that duty, and desirous of doing so, his very first step would have to be to turn himself in or order his own arrest as an imposter, thus refuting his own prior claim to be “President”…
    … Mr. Obama’s… because the number of counts of fraud in the imposture are multiplied by several orders of magnitude.

    Mine:
    1) The 2008 Democratic Nominating Committee (DNC) document did not include language stating that Obama was qualified to be a candidate. The 2008 Republican Nominating Committee (RNC) document did, as is normal. This shows that the DNC knew that Obama was not qualified, or why change the form?

    2) South Bend, Indiana jury found that Election Fraud put BOTH Obama and Hillary Clinton on the presidential primary ballot in Indiana in the 2008 election.

    3) Obama never met the three criteria ALL people who run for the office of the US president are REQUIRED to meet.

    Title 18, United States Code, Section 912 provides that “[w]hoever falsely assumes or pretends to be an officer * * * acting under the authority of the United States * * * , and acts as such, or in such pretended character demands or obtains any money, paper, document, or thing of value, shall be fined * * * or imprisoned not more than three years, or both”.

    http://www.newswithviews.com/Vieira/edwin256.htm
    Impeachment also deals with the situation in which no actual crime has been perpetrated, but removal from “Office”is nonetheless warranted, because the individual has committed some “high * * * Misdemeanor” of a political nature. See U.S. Const. art. II, § 4. For example, under pre-constitutional English law, “[T]HE first and principal” “high misdemeanor[ ]” was “the mal-administration of such high officers, as are in public trust and employment”, of which Blackstone set out a long list, including “preferring the interests of a foreign potentate to those of our own” and “disobedience to any act of parliament, where no particular penalty is assigned”

    Congress has already had two separate opportunities, each required by the selfsame statute, in which to address the issue of Mr. Obama’s ineligibility for “the Office of President”—and both times refused, to a man and woman, to take any action whatsoever. As I explained in detail in my NewsWithViews commentary entitled “In the Shadow of Nemesis” (8 December 2008), when Congress convened in 2008 to count the votes for President that had been cast in the Electoral College, only one Representative and one Senator needed to object to a single Elector’s vote for Mr. Obama on the ground of his possible ineligibility for “the Office of President” in order to compel some kind of immediate Congressional inquiry into the matter. Nevertheless, not one Member of Congress did so—even though each one of them could have interposed as many objections as there were Electors’ votes to be tallied. The same result obtained in 2012. Worse yet, many Members of Congress participated in that process in both 2008 and 2012 in the very same deaf, dumb, craven, and feckless manner. http://www.newswithviews.com/Vieira/edwin256.htm

    If Mr. Obama is in fact not eligible for “the Office of President” because he is not “a natural born Citizen”, then all of his actions in that pretended status have been null and void ab initio, and now will need to be set aside, with whatever complex, costly, and perhaps calamitous consequences must inevitably follow. For such a disaster, every Member of Congress from 2008 to today would be personally responsible, because each and every one of them has been complicitous in preventing an investigation of Mr. Obama’s reputed ineligibility. Qui potest et debet vetare tacens iubet.

    (b) Consider the remedy of a criminal prosecution. Unless Congress were to appoint a special prosecutor, which is as unlikely as impeachment for the same reasons, any criminal investigation would be conducted by Mr. Obama’s own cronies in the Department of Justice. Inasmuch as Attorney General Eric Holder has experienced no crisis of conscience to deter him from supplying absurd legalistic apologies for Mr. Obama’s on-going program of “official assassinations”, he should hardly be expected to shrink from defending Mr. Obama’s eligibility to commit those acts.

    (c) Consider the remedy of quo warranto. The statute cited above requires either that the Attorney General of the United States institute a proceeding “on his own motion or on the relation of a third person”, or that if the Attorney General refuses to institute a proceeding the United States District Court for the District of Columbia grant leave for “the interested person” to prosecute a civil action in the name of the United States. Obviously, the present Attorney General will no more institute a proceeding in quo warranto than he will investigate a criminal charge against Mr. Obama.
    And, having stifled every inquiry by all sorts of plaintiffs into Mr. Obama’s ineligibility to date, the Judiciary can hardly be depended upon to take the initiative—along with the inevitable political heat—now, after immense and possibly irreparable injury has been done to this country, to a large extent because of the Judiciary’s own prior poltroonish defaults. http://www.newswithviews.com/Vieira/edwin257.htm

    … Mr. Williams is brutally insightful: “The list of usurpations and administration crimes would require an encyclopedia to fully chronicle at this late stage. Recent breaking news of massive violations of American[s’] constitutional rights by nearly every federal agency which Obama has turned against the people of the United States eliminates any possibility that these events are just independent agency coincidences.” That is, the complicity of the bureaucracy is well-nigh complete. And although a few prominent “whistleblowers” can expose the pervasiveness of the rot, they will surely prove insufficient to overcome it. http://www.newswithviews.com/Vieira/edwin257.htm

    No more is relief likely to be had at the hands of high-level personages in the Armed Forces. Except when it comes to convening a drumhead court-martial in order to convict an officer with the courage to question Mr. Obama’s eligibility—such as Lieutenant Colonel Terrence Lakin—these people are proving to be “rubber lions” indeed.

    None of them seems to be capable of discerning the danger, not just to this country but to themselves personally as well, of their remaining under the command of an individual impersonating “the President”—namely, that if such an individual will violate the Constitution with respect to both his eligibility for that “Office” and the veracity of the “Oath or Affirmation” required of him as “the President”, what grotesquely unconstitutional orders will he hand down in his pretended capacity of “Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States” in order to maintain his power when he finds himself backed into a corner?

    This self-inflicted blindness is incredible, because the officer corps’ own self-interest, and even self-preservation, is at stake—inasmuch as Mr. Obama as the Armed Forces’ putative “Commander in Chief” might himself “pull the nuclear trigger”, or order them to pull it, with what devastating consequences can easily be imagined. Moreover, the officer corps’ own self-respect is at stake—inasmuch as Mr. Obama claims as “the President” a license to assassinate people anywhere in the world without any judicial process, and to call upon the Armed Forces to assist him in these homicidal ventures…

    Although no one should ever desire an actual revolt within the officer corps—for the simple reason that “government by junta” or even by the threat of a junta or golpe is utterly incompatible with a free society—one or two well publicized resignations by outspoken officers in high positions would go far towards making “Duty, Honor, Country” more than a mere slogan. Apparently, however, this is too much to expect, if it is not too much to ask. http://www.newswithviews.com/Vieira/edwin257.htm

    Inasmuch as Mr. Obama’s policy of “official assassinations” evokes a direct parallel to no less than Adolf Hitler, every thinking American who imagines that the Armed Forces will come to this country’s rescue would do well to peruse, for example, John W. Wheeler-Bennett, The Nemesis of Power: The German Army in Politics 1918-1945 (London, England: Macmillan and Company Limited, 1964). This book sets out some crucial historical lessons that confirm the wisdom of America’s Founding Fathers’ profound distrust of all “standing armies”—namely, that in the long run no country can rely upon professional “standing armies” to preserve its freedom from usurpers and tyrants; but that such establishments can be expected to aid and abet, or at least to countenance, and certainly not to challenge, a central government’s steady accretion, concentration, and ultimately abuse of power.

    (e) Consider the remedy of “interposition”, under which rubric the States can reassert the sovereignty they have reserved pursuant to the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution. If any situations can justify “interposition”, the usurpation of “the Office of President” by an individual constitutionally ineligible for that “Office” must surely appear near the very top of the list. Nonetheless, the States’ Governors, the States’ legislators, and the States’ judges have done nothing, except to remain silent themselves or to suppress others’ inquiries into the matter. http://www.newswithviews.com/Vieira/edwin257.htm

    Patriotic Americans should remember, though, that it is always darkest before the dawn; that God helps those who help themselves; and that (in the words of Algernon Sidney) “[h]e that has virtue and power to save a people, can never want a right of doing it”—and, one must presume, will always be capable of fashioning some remedy to effectuate that right…

    And it will not be overcome by the relatively few other individuals in Congress, in the Judiciary, in the General Government’s bureaucracy, in the States’ governments, or in the high commands of the Armed Forces — even if most of them were not consciously complicitous in the crisis or otherwise hopelessly compromised or confused.

    Instead, America must start what will prove to be an Herculean cleansing of her political stables “from the bottom up”, with her own people wielding the shovels. Not necessarily all of her people. Not necessarily even a majority of her people at first. Rather, America must identify, mobilize, organize, and put into the field those whom the Declaration of Independence denoted “the good People”. The people who desired the Colonies “to be Free and Independent States”, even in the face of resistance from domestic “loyalists” who were willing to support “the present King of Great Britain” in his “history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States”. http://www.newswithviews.com/Vieira/edwin257.htm

    The people whom its Preamble identified as having “ordain[ed] and established this Constitution”. And, today, the people who recognize the impossibility of resolving the underlying political, social, and cultural corruptions which have spawned “the crisis known as Obama” through any means less comprehensive than the people’s own direct involvement.

  4. He never should have been held in Mexico, he should not be charged in the state of California.

    “Marine vet imprisoned in Mexico could face charges in California”

    California, like all the US states and territories are REQUIRED to support and defend the US Constitution and their laws MUST be “in Pursuance thereof” the US Constitution to be lawful.

    True, he might be brought into the courts under “color of law” as a lot in – and out of – the state of California have been. But this, like the rest, is our fault. We allow it to continue.

  5. No friends got him out?
    Marine brothers did not get him out?
    Government did not send in a team to get him out?

    And you people continue to put you ass on the line for people that obviously don’t have your back?
    I will no longer fight in their made up BS “wars”. Never Again.
    Lies Lies Lies ALL LIES. That is what you hear when ANY politician speaks.

    Glad this young man made it.

    I have never had a Mexican beer, The US government STOPPED American companies from buying the Mexican breweries.
    Anti Business. Anti American US government.
    I will NEVER go to Drug Lord controlled Mexico or to the Peoples Republic of Commie California.
    California legalized drugs so the stoned population are content as the California government Steals them blind.
    My company makes every effort to NOT do BUSINESS with either Despot, Mexico or California.

    The US Government ALLOWED Mexico to hold a Marine?
    I’m leaving. Look at number of US persons who have had enough and Renouncing US Citizenship.

  6. @ Rollins, “Look at number of US persons who have had enough and Renouncing US Citizenship.”

    This is not a US problem, this is a worldwide problem. You have heard of attempts to take over the world? What do you think the New World Order, or One World Government is? It is the old “taking over the world theme dressed in a new name and a new package.

    Your choice is to fight, or to submit where ever you go on our planet. So if you leave, choose where you go well, because you will fight or submit there also.

  7. Cal
    USA will be NUKED by Russia and China in a First Strike.
    That is the obvious outcome to the provocation by USA puppet president.

    I disagree with the stay and fight. I will NOT fight my fellow American.
    But I will leave.
    I am not Owned anymore. My contract is done. Upon a recall I will go away.

    I will go where I am treated Best.
    I will go where my talents, contribution, and capital are appreciated and respected.
    I am not a plantation slave to USA. I am a FREE man.
    I will not have my hard work confiscated by corrupt politicians.
    I will not be bullied by cops with an attitude and chip on their shoulder.
    Cops are killing family pets. Real brave “police officers”
    http://www.prisonplanet.com/officers-open-fire-on-small-dog-as-it-runs-away-from-them-shoot-it-to-death.html
    I will not be hassled EVERY TIME I ride my motorbike, by Barney Fife impersonators.
    I will not be bullied by the damn letters that “code enforcement” or HOA constantly send.
    I do not appreciate the tone or threats. So I will LEAVE.
    I will not be hassled or harassed any longer by this CORRUPT nonsense.
    I TOO HAVE HAD ENOUGH.

    This so called government is a FUBAR FARCE.
    A one party political system ran by corrupt scum bags.
    Unrepairable.

    If Americans vote into office an unqualified incompetent radical communist like the current puppet.
    Then I will find a better place to go. Just as my ancestors left Germany when another IDIOT came to power.
    What happened to the rest of our family that stayed in Germany?
    Dead. All died.

    When the Russians FIRST STRIKE in concert with coordinated China Nukes, then those that are in USA will be like my Great Grandparents that stayed in a country ruled by a sociopath. Gone.

    I am exiting this USA plantation run by corrupt pupprets.

  8. I remember a Detective friend once commented that the nut jobs often cause harm or kill other creatures before they move on to people to harm. Is that what the nut jobs in the video link above are doing? Working up their cowardice courage before they murder their neighbors? That video clip makes you sick. Disgusting for grown men to do such a heinous act.

    Our dogs are family members.
    Fire on our Family members and we return fire.

    The thugs in black are conducting psyops.
    It will back fire and make them regret their anti social/sick behavior.
    One day they will run across “that guy”. And he will give them the “action” they seem to seek.

    Isn’t Wisconsin also where they sent a MRAP and full SWAT team out to collect a so called fine from a 85 year old man?
    Here it is:
    http://www.infowars.com/armored-vehicle-24-cops-show-up-to-collect-80000-from-elderly-man/

    This garbage happens because peasants are not at city hall with pitch forks.
