New Mexico Sheriff Standing Tall For The Constitution
The number of Constitutionally-minded Sheriffs in America is growing. Eddy County, New Mexico, Sheriff Scott London is the most recent Sheriff to stand up to a bullying Federal agency. Oath Keepers salutes Sheriff London.
This is totally encouraging. Yet another Sheriff is fearlessly standing up for his citizens to defend their Constitutionally-protected rights. This time a truly American Sheriff is standing between the IRS and a property owner in his County.
Sheriff Scott London of Eddy County, New Mexico, is a member in Sheriff Mack’s Constitutional Sheriffs And Peace Officers Association (CSPOA). I have talked with Sheriff Mack about the situation and have also enjoyed two very fine articles about Sheriff London’s confrontation with the IRS — one by KrisAnne Hall and the other by Ben Swann. All of the other articles floating about on the Internet seem to be versions of one or the other of those two articles, so allow me please to simply link our readers to both articles here, with a few brief excerpts from each.
But before linking readers to the two articlesI must first note that as of last night, Wednesday evening February 11, 2015, Sheriff Mack told me by telephone that Sheriff London does *not* want people to show up in support of his stand against the IRS.
As Sheriff Mack pointed out, this situation is totally different than the situation at Bundy Ranch this past April, 2014. In this instance we see a County Sheriff doing the right thing, standing up for his citizens in his County, and Sheriff London has the full support of his department and the people. He does not need the armed support which was needed at the Bundy Ranch, where the County Sheriff was *not* standing up for his citizens against the Federal government. So please, do not head for New Mexico to help out. This is not a situation which calls for that kind of help and support.
What is called for is spreading the word about this, showing everyone that Sheriff London is a true Constitutional Sheriff. In forwarding this article Oath Keepers can do tremendous RT&I, for here is a Sheriff who is willing to walk the walk. Sheriff Mack told me that indeed, Sheriff London will allow himself to be arrested if the Feds insist on doing that. But again, I repeat, Sheriff London does not want help from outside his County.
Now here are the two articles, with KrisAnne Hall’s article first:
Constitutional Sheriff in NM Defies IRS!
February 6, 2015 By KrisAnne Hall
(snippet from her article) Yes, Sheriff Scott London just issued a cease and desist order to the IRS! This is not the end of his letter. Sheriff London ends his notice to the IRS by making it very clear that he will stand by HIS oath to “support the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of New Mexico” even if the IRS will not.

And from Ben Swann:
EXCLUSIVE: Sheriff Stands Up to IRS, Cancels Land Sale
WASHINGTON, February 7, 2015—New Mexico’s Eddy County Sheriff Scott London notified the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) via letter that the sale of county resident Kent Carter’s property is canceled until Carter receives due process of law and his appeal is heard. The certified letter dated February 4 received an immediate response from the Undersecretary of the Treasury’s office. According to the Treasury’s website, however, the public auction is still slated for February 19.
“Many officers have stood up over the years for the rights of citizens being victimized by the federal government,” said Sheriff Mack, founder of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association, “But Sheriff London is the first one to stand up to the IRS since the early 1990s.” Mack said, “His actions show courage and humility. London is setting a good example for the rest of our sheriffs.”
