Idaho sheriff prevents the VA from confiscating guns

The CSPOA applauds the courageous defense of our Constitution by Idaho State Representative Heather Scott and Bonner County Sheriff Daryl Wheeler, in defending the Second Amendment Rights of a local citizen. The citizen in question is veteran John Arnold, who was told he could no longer own a gun by the VA, because he suffered a mild stroke.

Sheriff Wheeler and Rep. Scott both interposed on Arnold’s behalf to defend Arnold’s rights as an American, an American who served honorably in the U S Military! Sheriff Wheeler said that he would not allow Arnold’s rights to be violated because he had “taken and oath to uphold and defend the Constitution.”

Sheriff Wheeler proves once again that the CSPOA is having an impact on the preservation of American ideals all across this great land! Before the Oath Keeper and Constitutional Sheriff movement, you never heard of sheriffs and public servants ever mentioning such principled stands for freedom. Now, they are becoming a matter of routine as sheriffs perform their duties in accordance with their oaths of office.

I ask every American and every public official to seriously contemplate what would happen if we had hundreds more sheriffs and local leaders standing as Rep. Scott and Sheriff Wheeler have done in Idaho. It is precisely the manner by which we take America back! CSPOA takes our hats off to Sheriff Wheeler and Representative Scott.

Center for Western Priorities: Don’t be fooled by the innocuous name

A new ‘group’ has arisen out of nowhere to publish a ‘report’ on the ‘protection’ of ‘public lands.’ Yes, that’s a lot of air quotes. Now, normally we try not to give these types of liberal environmentalist groups any more publicity than they deserve, but we talked about it and came up with a few good reasons why we feel the need to make an exception here. First of all, they’re specifically targeting Utah State Representative Ken Ivory, a signer of the CSPOA declaration and a long-time friend to our cause. Secondly, this is probably not the last we’ll hear from them. So let’s break down those air quotes:

‘group’ = The web site itself does not say who they are. Our inside info says it’s funded by a couple billionaires who have set out to prevent the western states from regaining control of their own lands obtained illegally by the feds. A little internet digging revealed that Jennifer Rokala, the former state director for U.S. Sen. Mark Udall (Mr. Socialist himself), was named executive director of The Center for Western Priorities in April. Their policy director is Gregory Zimmerman, who was previously involved with The Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies and The Nature Conservancy. All environmentalist, all the time.

‘public lands‘ = Lands seized by the fed, and therefore no longer controlled by the public.

‘protection’ = Federal control of. Now, we’ve said it before and we’ll say it again; It doesn’t really matter how noble their cause sounds (protecting the environment, protecting the children, public education, fixing the economy, the war on drugs, etc). If your method of achieving that goal is to trample the Constitution, withhold freedom or property from the people, make puppets of local governments by tricking them into dependency on federal funds, or anything else that pulls more power into Washington DC, we cannot stand for it. We cannot allow it, because in the end it’s not about any of those noble causes. It’s about control.

‘report’ = A very slick, multi-page document with lots of infographics all aimed at painting Representative Ken Ivory as someone who apparently hates the Earth, as evidenced by his desire to return land currently controlled by the feds back to the states, whom they seem to think are incapable of doing anything but destroying it. The document quotes heavily from the (equally innocuous-sounding) Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) in its attempts to discredit Ken Ivory by pointing out his association with supposed ‘patriot,’ ‘radical’ and ‘racist’ groups. It actually ends up sounding a lot like Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. The article also mentions CSPOA several times in relation to Ken Ivory, as though that was a bad thing!

We feel that any discussion of the federal control of public lands should begin with the following infographic. See our blog post for more on this.

The ‘War on Drugs’ is over, and we lost

Meet the Police Chief who’s starting a revolution in the fight against substance abuse.

The Free Thought Project – Leonard Campanello is not your average police officer, which makes him even more of an atypical police chief. While police departments across the United States double down on the war on drugs with more military gear and violence, Campanello is doing it right. While cops continue busting down doors of suspected drug users, and killing their dogs, or killing them, Campanello is reaching out his hand…. “If you are a user of opiates or heroin, let us help you. We know you do not want this addiction. We have resources here in the City that can and will make a difference in your life. Do not become a statistic,” wrote Campanello. Campanello then got in touch with the local mayor and began the Police Assisted Addiction and Recovery Initiative (P.A.A.R.I.) which would help drug addicts instead of lock them in cages.

Richard Mack hangs with Sheriff David Clarke and his wife at a Brewers game

Mack

Update from Richard Mack:

I recently spent the day with Sheriff David Clarke and his wife Julie and attended a Milwaukee Brewers game together. Sheriff Clarke was kind enough to have his staff give me a tour of the county jail and the Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Clarke was the CSPOA sheriff of the year in 2013 and has since then become a voice of reason nationally for FOX News. Sheriff Clarke continues his strong relationship with CSPOA and urges one and all to be CSPOA members.

It was a great day; the Brewers even won!

  1. Why is there any Federal Ownership of Land?

    I can see States Leasing section for Military Bases (etc.), yet they have no reason to own land, period. It is the Peoples Land, No Fed or State should own. For States they should Lease from the People. It’s time to spit out the Pacifier and Chew Some Hard Food…

  2. The big problem is the big MSM will demonize all that stand for the constitution. There are exceptions, but their voice is too small. There will be no fix. Nice guys lose. A rope is the only fix for all the evil, but that too will be miss read. In addition, there is no stomach for such action. The nice people will just go along with the flow, maybe moan a little and lose everything this country was built on. Chatting about what is wrong does not and will not fix it. The masses that live in the blue cities and urbania will never see the light, there are too busy reading their text messages and counting their “likes.” Am I pessimistic, you bet. The foundation is rotting, the corner stones have gone AWOL. I can think of two people in my large family that have a clue, that have a realization as to why our great great grandparents came here, why they worked hard, fought and died for their freedom. Go to a local grocery store and strike up a conversation about the future, about what is going on, about the constitution…no one has a freakin clue! They think the government ownership of land is a good thing…stop the sprawl of humanity. Protect the frogs and turtles. The entire world population would fit in Rhode Island, but all they see is what MSM spews into their living-rooms. Our military won’t arrest the criminals in D.C., our LOE’s won’t arrest the criminal local tyrannistas, but they will gladly terrorize the innocent, then say oops…wrong house, and the patriots won’t start anything that resembles 1776. Our forefathers are rolling over in their graves….my fathers came here in vane.

  3. sounds like the feds are more into stealing land for the enviro collective and other communazi obama/un socialist pigs like the southern pigs law cesspool

  4. @ Ron
    The only lawful land that the general government is allowed to own is 10 square miles, Washington DC, and “all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings”.

    The federal government held TERRITORIES in TRUST for the new states as they were created; and all new states came in on equal footing. What happened is those who were serving within our general government decided that they would rather steal the land from the new states and NOT turn it over as REQUIRED once the land boundaries decided and federal government was created and implemented.

    It is theft and, like with any theft, belongs to the (person) or “state” where it is found within their state boundaries except for the “all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings” which does belong to the general (federal) government.

    @Highflight, ” Chatting about what is wrong does not and will not fix it.”

    If you do not know what the problem is, then how can you know the solution?

    “… no one has a freakin clue! They think the government ownership of land is a good thing…stop the sprawl of humanity. Protect the frogs and turtles.”

    Back when TV was created, and was black and white only, subliminals were created and used. Think of all those years of subliminals being used upon the people.

    Add to it the overthrow of our education system, the “poisoning” of our food supplies with chemical and “scientific” changes, add in vaccines (do a bit of research there if you are not sure what I am talking about), the takeover of medicine to be only what is used for profit for corporations, etc and you know what and about how long the attack on the “dumbing” down of Americans has been going on.

    Cell phones today have subliminals, Smart meters, etc. Then you have propaganda, treasonous “news” agencies, etc to add to the mix. Add fluoridation of water supplies, etc and then you must start to admit the American people are still pretty strong because none of that was enough.

    Then they started importing people from third world nations that only understood people in charge, dictatorships, etc. I believe that started around Bush 1 or so. Add in the stuff they drop from the sky, the stuff put into our food, etc.

    What is amazing is that there is anyone left who can actually critically think at all.

    ” The entire world population would fit in Rhode Island,”

    In Texas.

    “Our military won’t arrest the criminals in D.C., our LOE’s won’t arrest the criminal local tyrannistas, but they will gladly terrorize the innocent,…”

    It is NOT the job of the military, nor the LOE’s to do those duties. Read the US Constitution and it tells you that those duties belong to the people as the Militia. The Militia has as its constitutionally assigned duties to:

    — Enforce the US Constitution and each state’s Constitution,
    — Enforce and keep the “Laws of the Union” (which are constitutional laws ONLY),
    — Protect the country against all enemies both domestic and foreign, and
    — “to suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions”.

    The US Constitution guarantees to each state its own “Republican form of government”. It is every state’s Militia that is the ONLY Constitutionally assigned force to “counter Invasions” and “Domestic Violence” within our nation.

    It is important to remember that when the US Constitution assigns a duty, etc to a body or position within a branch, etc it is FORBIDDEN to the other branches whatever the position being occupied is.

    So when the US Constitution says that those are the duties of the Militia, and that those who SERVE WITHIN our governments – state and federal – were then forbidden to create any governmental professional law enforcement. But “We the people” instead of doing our duty were “freed up” so helpfully to put them into place. But those that serve within the governmental professional law enforcement – state and federal – are REQUIRED to take and KEEP the Oath as their lawful authorization of authority. That is the basis of their authority, and when they no longer keep the Oath, they no longer have lawful authority beyond the weapons they carry. Since they are no longer trained and taught their Constitutional duties they are now being USED against Americans, the USA, and to destroy the US Constitution. They are made into Traitors working against our nation and to destroy the US Constitution, and most do not even know enough to know that and make the decisions to continue or to stop.

    So, train (cspoa.org, or Oathkeepers.org can guide you there), join your Militia or start one within your state because the organized (trained) Militia has the full weight of the US Constitution and each state Constitution behind it.

    If you are ex military then you are trained as the organized Militia is required, now you need to learn what it is about. If you are an ex governmental professional law enforcement then you are most of the way there but need military training.

    Who is the “boss” of the Militias?

    — The Militias are bound to the US Constitution and all that is in Pursuance thereof it; and to the state Constitutions.

    — They may be used by state governments and/or by those who serve within the federal government for listed, put-into-writing within the Constitutions – US and state) purposes.

    ex: Article 1, Section 8, Clause 15: “To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel invasions.

    — Those that serve within our governments have certain duties to the Militias

    ex: Clause 16: “To provide for organizing, ARMING, and disciplining, the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress”.

    — The Militia employed in the service of the United States, shall receive the same pay and allowances, as the troops of the United States

    — The Militia employed in the service of the States, shall receive the same pay and allowances, as the state troops

    — On their own the Militia sets up neighborhood, county, city, state protection when needed

    — When needed Militias can join with others in different states to stop state invasions, etc.

    — Their are some permanent Militia who do the duties needed for running the Militia, training in the US and state Constitutions, etc.

    John Adams, A Defense of the Constitutions of the United States 475: “To suppose arms in the hands of citizens, to be used at individual discretion, except in private self-defense, or by partial orders of towns, countries or districts of a state, is to demolish every constitution, and lay the laws prostrate, so that liberty can be enjoyed by no man; it is a dissolution of the government. THE FUNDAMENTAL LAW OF THE MILITIA IS, THAT IT BE CREATED, DIRECTED AND COMMANDED BY THE LAWS, AND EVER FOR THE SUPPORT OF THE LAWS.”

    Alexander Hamilton, The Federalist Papers 28: The militia is a voluntary force not associated or under the control of the States except when called out; [when called into actual service] a permanent or long standing force would be entirely different in make-up and call.

    And some believed that the people need their own weapons manufacturers for military weapons just in case we got people who serve within our government who refused to do their duty and give those weapons to the Militia of each state.

    George Washington, ex General, and the First US President: “A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well-digested plan is requisite; and their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactories as tend to render them independent of others for essential, particularly military, supplies.”

    Silveira v. Lockyer, 328 F.3d 567 (2003), Judge Alex Kozinski of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reminded us that the Second Amendment is not about duck hunting: “All too many of the other great tragedies of history – Stalin’s atrocities, the killing fields of Cambodia, the Holocaust, to name but a few – were perpetrated by armed troops against unarmed populations. Many could well have been avoided or mitigated, had the perpetrators known their intended victims were equipped with a rifle and twenty bullets apiece, as the Militia Act required here. … If a few hundred Jewish fighters in the Warsaw Ghetto could hold off the Wehrmacht for almost a month with only a handful of weapons, six million Jews armed with rifles could not so easily have been herded into cattle cars.
    “My excellent colleagues have forgotten these bitter lessons of history. The prospect of tyranny may not grab the headlines the way vivid stories of gun crime routinely do. But few saw the Third Reich coming until it was too late. The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed – where the government refuses to stand for re-election and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once.
    “Fortunately, the Framers were wise enough to entrench the right of the people to keep and bear arms within our constitutional structure. The purpose and importance of that right was still fresh in their minds, and they spelled it out clearly so it would not be forgotten.” Judge Alex Kozinski

    It has been well established throughout our history that the original intent of the 2nd amendment was to enable the people to defend against tyranny which invariably comes in the form of an overbearing and oppressive government. This right to defense is not special to Americans and is a natural right of all peoples.

    In the 70s and 80’s the Afghani militia (the Mujahideen) was engaged against tyranny (Soviets). In order to aid them in their fight against their oppressors, the USA sent Stinger shoulder mounted rocket launchers so they could wage an asymmetrical battle against the much better equipped Soviet forces.

    Therefore our own federal government established the precedent that, in the age of a modern military, modern weapons of war fall within the scope of weapons necessary for citizen militias fighting against tyranny – inadvertently making the case that they should be covered under the 2nd amendment.

    Hope this helps you to understand why things are not working within our government, you see, the people are NOT doing their constitutional duty.

    1. @ Cal

      Thank you for putting so much effort into your comments. However, I clearly understand and know all too well what the real problems are. Like I say, no group or individuals are going to do anything to rid the ruling criminals. Nor will the criminals be voted out in sufficient and effective numbers.

      We all know that 170,000,000 million souls were murdered because they were disarmed during the 20th century. No one cares but a few of us; there is no rage concerning the constitution and our criminal governments. Sorry, but two people aren’t enough to affect the change needed, nor the OK crowd, nor NRA crowd, nor any other existing patriot crowd is enough.

      Further, there is no current education process is going to come about that will effectively enlighten our fellow countrymen. How many people read this blog or any patriotic blog? Whatever the answer, it isn’t enough. Have the web master add a view counter.

      When comes down to the real grit, one major global catastrophe will set things back to the dark ages; be it a massive solar flare, world war, Yellowstone type event…

      Texas? Very funny, but as for Texas, save Texas for the freedom minded. Like I stated, the entire biomass of humanity fits in Rhode Island, each with their own 3.95 square feet. My point being the land grab by local, state, and federal bureaucracy is the work of the freakshow econazi “saving” the planet, mentality ill types whose agenda is perpetrated by MSM; the same MSM who take their limos to work. And the idiots in urgania think it’s just great. Here is the math:

      1034 sq stature miles hath Rhode Island
      That equates to 28,826,265,600 square feet in Rhode Island
      Assuminjg the population is = 7,300,000,000
      then 3.95 square feet for each person

      Cheers!

    Well I agree 80% on 99% of what you stated here, although with “subliminals” one must also have an enhancer and that can range from an individual that has any number of dysfunctional traits (yes plain old severe stress will work) to a {Stable} individual where the effectiveness drops radically. In other-words it does not affect a large segment of the population.

    Now as to the rest, what in the world are people thinking. Listen to all the Disclaimers Big Pharma presents on their products, you for sure need a Dysfunctional or out right Stupid person to take any of these products.

    Militias or not, not in this generation (IMO). We will without any doubt in my mind be required to pass through many decades of hardship before some one will be born that can begin to instill into the populace a drive for Freedom, not only of thought but of action. This process will be slow and have many false starts, but way down the road it will turn around again and the BLIGHT will be destroyed and a new Nation will evolve. The best we can do is try to pass on what it should be like and hope that that will add to and increase the chances of a fast resurrection of a future generation.

  6. Has anybody come to the realization that a NEW USA should be formed by either separating and or the Second Alternative finding another country that WOULD sell-out to Americans—for the money–say Uraguay or Belize or Barbados?
    Considering moral Biblical values these 3 and maybe Chili are possible options.

    I have visions that are 100% accurate — years ago the NRO-NASA-DIA used me —and many dream visions and remote viewing were the USA burning up ,black skies, and nuclear mushroom clouds –so I know this will happen.

    Not IF b…not maybe.. but will,,and in our life-tme.

    1. …that’s interesting.

      Some aliens said the same thing… that we only have 100 years remaining…. to a group of earthlings they kidnapped in Houston, and that was about 50 years ago. That’s what the kidnapped claimed.

      What else do you know?

  7. You are all traitors to the unity of the USA and have no idea as to what our Constitution is. You do not act to form a more perfect union in any way.

    1. Well, My Goodness! All along, I have thought (presumed) that the Constitution is this nation’s founding legal charter, which created the Federal government, which is expected to abide by the written word and will of We The People. Guess I was flat-out wrong, eh?
      Please do inform us about the Constitution. Thank you in advance.

      Salute!
