Law Enforcement Officers Must Disobey Unlawful Orders

Retired Sheriff Richard Mack is founder and president of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association. He was interviewed by Dr. Joseph Mercola and some of the discussion included the sheriffs’ oath to obey the U.S. Constitution, especially in regards to the unconstitutional orders that mayors and governors have been inflicting on their respective citizens, i.e. serfs, to wear masks, socially distance or be forbidden to gather in groups of certain numbers.

Sheriff Mack mentions the importance of the officials’ oath to the U.S. Constitution (and to their respective state constitutions).

Law enforcement officers recite several different oaths when they are sworn in, I believe.

According to the International Association of Chiefs of Police, the Law Enforcement Oath of Honor reads: “On my honor, I will never betray my integrity, my character or the public trust. I will always have the courage to hold myself and others accountable for our actions. I will always maintain the highest ethical standards and uphold the values of my community, and the agency I serve.”

The city of Phoenix law enforcement officers, for instance, also recite the following oath: “I (state your name), do solemnly swear (or affirm), that I will support the Constitution of the United States, and the Constitution and laws of the State of Arizona, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same, and defend them against enemies, foreign and domestic, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge, the duties of a peace officer, to the best of my ability, so help me God.”

Many U.S. local law enforcement officers recite the same or similar oaths.

And when it comes to the U.S. military, as I wrote in this article,

All U.S. military enlistees swear or affirm an oath to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic,” to “bear true faith and allegiance to the same … according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice…”

Now, the Uniform Code of Military Justice, or Title 10 U.S. Code Chapter 47, indicates that military personnel must obey “lawful” orders. For example, if accused of “willfully disobeying a lawful command of his superior commissioned officer,” a serviceman may be punished accordingly. And if accused of “willfully disobeying the lawful order of a warrant officer, noncommissioned officer, or petty officer,” a serviceman may be punished accordingly. And the law specifically states that one who “violates or fails to obey any lawful general order or regulation,” or who has “knowledge of any other lawful order issued by a member of the armed forces, which it is his duty to obey, fails to obey the order,” the serviceman may be punished accordingly.

Note how military personnel must obey “lawful” orders. Therefore they are not legally obligated to obey unlawful orders, by superior officers, or even by the President of the United States.

Of course, as I also noted, that would mean that all U.S. government officials, law enforcement officials and U.S. military personnel who swore an oath to support, defend and obey the U.S. Constitution are obligated to support, defend and obey ALL parts of the Constitution. And I believe that would especially apply to the Bill of Rights, the first ten Amendments to the U.S. Constitution, which recognize some of the rights that people naturally have prior to the formation of the government that may not be violated by government officials.

In the aforementioned interview of Sheriff Richard Mack, Sheriff Mack states, “The place we start is the Declaration of Independence … So, we teach all that…And then we go into the Bill of Rights. I’m telling you, if our peace officers in this country understand that quote, ‘To secure these rights, governments are instituted among men,’ right from the Declaration of Independence, we find what the proper role of government is, and that is to secure God given rights, natural rights, our innate rights. That is the job of every peace officer in this country.”

That means that our government police and other officials may not violate our rights to the freedom of speech, freedom of religion and freedom from religion, the right to assembly and the right to criticize the government, the right of self-defense and the right to keep and bear arms, the right to be secure in our homes, persons, papers and effects, the right to be free from suspicion-less searches and seizures, the right to due process, the right to be free from government stealing our property, the right to be protected from false accusation with the right to face one’s accuser and require that accusers present evidence against the accused, the right to trial by a jury of one’s peers, the right to be free of cruel and unusual punishment, etc.

The Bill of Rights also includes the 9th and 10th Amendments.

The Ninth Amendment: “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”

In my view, we have many rights besides the ones I just mentioned, too many to be specifically enumerated in the Bill of Rights. All those more specific rights are within the general category of self-ownership, and are under the general rights mentioned in the Declaration of Independence, the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

And the Tenth Amendment: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.” (See the Tenth Amendment Center.)

Now, while Sheriff Mack referred to the mask mandates being unconstitutional especially because they are not actual laws but only “executive orders” by governors and mayors, and therefore should not be enforced by law enforcement officers, I wanted to briefly address the riots, assaults, acts of arson and looting in the cities that are referred to by very dishonest people in politics and the media as “peaceful protests” regardless of the rioters’ destroying those cities.

If a mayor, governor, or even a police chief orders a law enforcement officer to “stand down,” and not arrest someone clearly seen committing criminal acts of property destruction, assaulting others, setting fires to buildings, looting and stealing, then clearly such a “stand down” order is an unlawful order, because it is telling officers to stand by and be a witness to crimes but not intervene, thus making the officer aiding and abetting such criminal activities, in my view.

Such an officer obeying unlawful orders is thus violating at the very least the Law Enforcement Oath of Honor, which I quoted above, and will repeat here: “On my honor, I will never betray my integrity, my character or the public trust. I will always have the courage to hold myself and others accountable for our actions. I will always maintain the highest ethical standards and uphold the values of my community, and the agency I serve.”

I will leave it up to you to determine whether a law enforcement officer is violating his oaths by standing by and not arresting rioters who are clearly engaged in violent, criminal activities, hurting people and destroying property and burning down buildings and businesses and stealing away the livelihoods of the people who own and built those businesses and employ others in the community.

And in regards to police chiefs, mayors, governors or the President of the United States issuing unlawful, unconstitutional orders for law enforcement officers or other government officials which violate the constitutionally-protected rights of the people, the Oath Keepers, an organization of current and former military personnel and law enforcement officers, lists the following unlawful, unconstitutional orders they pledge to not obey (each item continues with a historical context on that page):

1. We will NOT obey any order to disarm the American people…

2. We will NOT obey any order to conduct warrantless searches of the American people, their homes, vehicles, papers, or effects – such as warrantless house-to house searches for weapons or persons…

3. We will NOT obey any order to detain American citizens as “unlawful enemy combatants” or to subject them to trial by military tribunal…

4. We will NOT obey orders to impose martial law or a “state of emergency” on a state, or to enter with force into a state, without the express consent and invitation of that state’s legislature and governor…

5. We will NOT obey orders to invade and subjugate any state that asserts its sovereignty and declares the national government to be in violation of the compact by which that state entered the Union…

6. We will NOT obey any order to blockade American cities, thus turning them into giant concentration camps…

7. We will NOT obey any order to force American citizens into any form of detention camps under any pretext…

8. We will NOT obey orders to assist or support the use of any foreign troops on U.S. soil against the American people to “keep the peace” or to “maintain control” during any emergency, or under any other pretext. We will consider such use of foreign troops against our people to be an invasion and an act of war…

9. We will NOT obey any orders to confiscate the property of the American people, including food and other essential supplies, under any emergency pretext whatsoever…

10. We will NOT obey any orders which infringe on the right of the people to free speech, to peaceably assemble, and to petition their government for a redress of grievances…

And that declaration of disobeying unlawful orders applies whether such orders are issued by superior officers such as police chiefs, or executives such as mayors, governors, or the President of the United States.

Law enforcement officers are obligated to obey the Constitution above obeying the President and other officers.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Has Died

To further complicate the 2020 presidential election campaign, Supreme Bureaucrat Ruth Bader Ginsburg has finally kicked the bucket, after suffering 20 years or more of cancers and other illnesses.

Trump wants to nominate a replacement “justice,” and Democrats want Trump to wait until after the election, “after the people have voted.” But the people have voted, in 2016, and the current presidential term still has 4 months to go. So there.

Now, as far as I’m concerned, Ginsburg should not be replaced, and the remaining “justices” (sic)  should all be dismissed, forthwith. They all suck. They are all rubber-stampers for the State.

Rarely does the High Court rule in favor of the individual and individual rights, private property rights, voluntary association and voluntary contract.

There was one decision that I can think of in which Ginsburg voted the right way, an 8-1 decision and she was the lone dissent. The 8 nazis voted in favor of government police violently breaking into people’s homes, terrorizing them and arresting them because of the State’s “war on drugs,” because the police “smelled marijuana” and heard “evidence being destroyed.”

Evidence of WHAT? Someone smoking marijuana in his own home? There is no crime there. There is no victim there. Sadly, the other “liberals” on the High Court agreed with the drug nazis and disagreed with Ginsburg who cited that dusty old Fourth Amendment.

But her vote in that case certainly was not a vote in favor of private property rights, as she also voted with the majority in the Kelo vs. New London case, in which the High Court allowed for private developers to steal private property, aided and abetted by local government schnooks, on behalf of private interests and not on behalf of the “public” that the Fifth Amendment demands.

So in general, Ginsburg was awful, voting to approve government fascism in other ways, such as ObamaCare’s mandate and other horrible rulings against the rights of the people and their property. In the end, with few exceptions such as the aforementioned police-marauder drug case, Ginsburg was just another pinko commie bureaucrat. Oh, well.

A Debate Between Two of NH Gov. Sununu’s Republican Primary Opponents

The Republican governor of New Hampshire, Chris Sununu, is considered by freedom lovers to be a tyrant who has abused his office especially when ordering businesses closed and causing economic chaos and job losses, much like the fascists in many other states, based on the scamdemic that we are still suffering. Sununu’s latest act of fascism was ordering the people of New Hampshire to have to wear masks on their faces if in gatherings of over 100 people, despite the studies which show that the face masks do not prevent the transmission of viruses and in fact could cause harm to the individual.

As I have mentioned previously, Sununu has two opponents in the Republican primary this September 8th, Nobody and Karen Testerman. I had written about Nobody, who had his name legally changed to Nobody, in this post.

There was a debate between Nobody and Testerman and, while Chris Sununu was invited to participate, he decided to snub his opponents. The debate between the two opponents was moderated by Mark Edge of Free Talk Live.

The two primary opponents discussed government schools, the drug war, COVID and Sununu’s fascist business closures, recent riots and violence in the cities in Amerika, and the possibility of New Hampshire state secession.

It certainly was a good debate and discussion. Very good points made by both candidates.

Besides Sunono’s fascism with COVID, he is also an anti-freedom-of-speech, anti-private-property, anti-freedom-of-association SJW in his signing the bills banning “discrimination” based on gender identity, and banning so-called “conversion therapy.” So the governor believes there are thought crimes which must be punished. He signed the bills only weeks before his previous reelection as governor in 2018. Conservatives who don’t know about that might want to consider ousting Sunono for those reasons as well as COVID fascism.

Election 2020 in Third World Amerika

So, last week was the Democrat convention. I only heard excerpts of the speeches on the radio. The Obamas, the Clintons, Cruella Harris, John Kerry, Cory Schnooker. Oh, they were inspiring, all right.

But did anyone there mention how Barack Obama and his VP Joe Biden continued the fascist drug war viciously, and that they went after medical marijuana people even in states that legalized medical marijuana? What about the drone strikes that murder mainly innocent civilians overseas that Obama escalated after Bush?

Did they mention how as a U.S. Senator Joe Biden wrote or sponsored legislation hardening the drug war, and in fact gave us drug-related asset forfeiture? Just look at all the awful fascist laws Biden gave Amerika. Many of those laws have negatively affected black people much more than whites. But remember, if you don’t vote for Biden, “you ain’t black!”

Sadly, Donald Trump agrees with the fascist drug war, and in fact he has said he wants to militarize it! Doh!

So far, the Republicans have begun their convention with speakers who are trying to give people “hope,” but they are nevertheless fellow fascists, neocons, drug warriors and regime-change warmongers. Oh, well.

Trump was correct toward the beginning of the scamdemic that the hysteria and panic was unwarranted, until the bureaucratic swamp that surrounds him in the White House gave him a good psy-opping. If Trump isn’t going to tell the American people that the CDC and NIH and Fauci have been lying to us about the “virus,” then he is one of them, as far as I’m concerned. He’s a liar, too. And a swamp creature as well.

We know that “175,000” people “killed by COVID-19” is a lie, because CDC and most of the states’ “public health” bureaucrats are counting heart disease deaths, diabetes deaths, stroke deaths, accidental deaths, gunshot deaths, etc. as “COVID-19 deaths,” simply if the deceased person had tested positive for coronavirus. We know that most of the “COVID” patients put on ventilators die, and probably because of the ventilator. And we know that COVID-19 has a .1 to .2% infection fatality rate, just like seasonal flu. So given that the COVID-19 is no more deadly than the seasonal flu, not only is “175,000 people killed by COVID-19” a lie, it’s not even close to that.

The panic-inciting bureaucrats and their co-conspirators in the media have been engaging in such Orwellian fear-mongering for what reason? Are they trying to terrify the masses into not wanting to physically go to the polls to vote in primaries or in the November election? It wouldn’t surprise me. The Trump haters lied about “Russia collusions” for 3 years, and Adam Stiff and Jerry Noodler conducted Spanish Inquisitions to try to get Trump but they failed. We see how corrupt these people are, and their cohorts in the media.

Look, if you can go to the grocery store, the bank and other places as people have been doing, then you can go to the polls and vote. That will ensure that your vote will be counted.

However, if you vote by mail, there is a very good chance that your vote won’t be counted. Given the cancel culture and the censorship and shame crusade against Trump supporters, if you’re a Trump voter do you really want the election workers who open those envelopes to see your name and know that you voted for Trump?

No, I’m not a Trump supporter or voter, I wouldn’t even vote for the joke of a “Libertarian” Party, with that sheeple Jo Smorgasbord, wearing the mask of submission to the State that symbolizes serfdom and suppression of dissent. And standing with the Marxists of “Black Lives Matter,” who don’t give a damn about the many more black lives being murdered by other black people than by police (and the “blacks and browns” being murdered by U.S. CIA drone strikes overseas, quite frankly). And besides, Jorgensen only won 5,000 or so votes in the states’ primaries for 2020, while Jacob Hornberger won some 9,000 votes, yet the convention partiers decided to go with Jorgensen!

Speaking of “Black Lives Matter”/Antifa, why do media and Democrats refer to rioters, looters, vandals, arsonists burning down businesses, people throwing rocks and bricks at others, as “peaceful protesters”? What about the marauders going into quiet, suburban neighborhoods to wake up the “white, rich people”?

You probably heard about the “white, rich couple” in St. Louis, the McCloskeys, who brandished their firearms when a large group of marauding terrorists broke into and trespassed on their property and threatened to burn their house down. The corrupt DA is investigating the couple for defending their home and their lives! They are actually Democrats who spoke at the Republican convention. Go figure.

But I digress. Regarding the mail-in cheating, if that gets imposed in many states for November, and for no good reason except as a means for people to cheat more easily, then we are going to see contested state election after contested state election, lawsuits galore, with voting challenges stuck in the courts for weeks, even months. This will not only apply to the Presidential election but to Congressional races as well. It can only be chaos, and may not be resolved by early January because Congressional races will not be resolved, and by January 20th Nancy Lugosi will be sworn in as President. Hooray for “democracy”! Don’t you love it?

Nobody Is Running for Governor of New Hampshire

There is a candidate for governor of New Hampshire that I thought you might find of interest, especially if you live in New Hampshire and want to oust the current fascist governor, Chris Sununu, who ordered businesses closed for no good reason, just like all the other fascist governors throughout the country.

The candidate who is running against Sununu in the Republican primary is someone named Nobody. Apparently, Nobody legally changed his name from Richard Paul to “Nobody” last year for the purposes of “performance art and protest,” according to his statement in the court.

And while Nobody is running in the Republican primary, there is a Libertarian Party candidate on the ballot, Darryl Perry, who I had praised in my scathing critique of the Libertarian Party in 2016. At that time Perry was running for President, but now running for governor of New Hampshire. Unfortunately, his platform seems kind of wishy-washy. That’s just my view on that.

So, if I were living in New Hampshire, I would vote for Nobody, though I am uncomfortable with the marijuana stuff. But, whatever.

Nobody’s main issue is ending the War on Drugs, which he had personally been a victim of. And the corrupt criminal injustice system, false arrests, and so on.

In the video below is Nobody filing for his Declaration of Candidacy for governor against fascist Chris Sununu in the New Hampshire Republican primary at the Secretary of State’s office which is set up outside (being outside presumably because of the ongoing scamdemic-caused hysteria and panic).

Nobody eloquently quotes the Declaration of Independence because obviously he has a very good understanding of it. (Quite the opposite from Chris Sununu, the son of a previous fascist governor of New Hampshire.) Nobody says that instead of government being the chief protector of our rights, government has become the chief violator of our rights. “Government does things that nobody should do, and I want to get into office and refuse to do them.”

Amen.

On his list of things to do as governor: “Release list of crooked cops.”

Yep.
