“Inalienable Rights endowed by our Creator”: Has Planned “'Sanctuary' for Abortion" Newsom's California shown how to Defeat the Lawless Biden Regime by Declaring Local Governments Sanctuaries of the "Constitutional Republic"?

The City of Oroville in California has declared itself a "constitutional republic" because of the lawless Joe Biden-like Governor Gavin Newsom's California COVID mandates that "infringe on people’s rights" according to an article by The Epoch Times:
A Northern California city declared itself a constitutional republic in November, after disagreeing with COVID-19 mandates from the state government. The declaration symbolically affirms citizens’ inalienable rights as the state extends emergency health orders and issues a new round of state-wide mask mandates.
Scott Thomson, vice mayor of Oroville, has been the main proponent of the move. He said California’s COVID-19 mandates infringe on people’s rights.
“It’s a public declaration of saying … we disagree … with the way this pandemic is being handled. I put it up, we voted on it, and it passed, 6–1,” Thomson told NTD Television.
Many of the city’s 20,000 residents—a balance of Democrats, Republicans, and independents—supported the move at a public meeting on Nov. 2. [https://www.theepochtimes.com/california-city-declared-constitutional-republic-to-shake-covid-mandates_4164316.html?slsuccess=1]
In the article, the Orovillle vice mayor Scott Thomson said the public declaration is a matter of "inalienable rights endowed by our Creator":
“We have … inalienable rights endowed by our Creator, and also a republic, which, in essence, means a separation of powers... And that’s not what we have with this emergency declaration that we’ve been going on. This next extension, by the time that finishes, would be two years of emergency powers. That’s not what it was designed for.”
In a giving one a taste of its own medicine to the leftist state regime, Thomson said the public declaration concept came from Newsom and state lawmakers ideas like a "plans for designating California as a “sanctuary” for abortion in response to a potential Supreme Court overturn of Roe v. Wade... designed to combat perceived federal government overreach":
Ironically, Thomson said the declaration was inspired by Newsom—then a mayor—declaring San Francisco a sanctuary city for illegal immigrants in 2007, and more recently, state lawmakers’ plans for designating California as a “sanctuary” for abortion in response to a potential Supreme Court overturn of Roe v. Wade—both of which were designed to combat perceived federal government overreach.
“The sense is … this is an acceptable option when you feel the government is overreaching in its power,” Thomson said.
According to Thomson, there has been no contact from the state or federal government and no funds have been withheld—although that’s a looming threat.
Two cities located in Central California were denied state COVID-19 funds in July 2020 following individual declarations to keep businesses open contrary to the state’s orders.
Since the declaration, Thomson said the city has received comments from around the state and country, with 90 percent of them being supportive. [https://www.theepochtimes.com/california-city-declared-constitutional-republic-to-shake-covid-mandates_4164316.html?slsuccess=1]
Less than a third of the country wants Biden to run for reelection. In many head-to-head polls, Trump now defeats Biden.
In other words, leftist elites are terrified that democracy will work too robustly.
After the Russian collusion hoax, two impeachments, the Hunter Biden laptop stories, the staged melodramas of the Kavanaugh hearings, the Jussie Smollett con, the Covington kids smear, and the Rittenhouse trial race frenzy, the people are not just worn out by leftist hysterias, but they also weary of how the Left gains power and administers it.
If Joe Biden were polling at 70% approval, and his policies at 60%, the current doomsayers would be reassuring us of the “health of the system.”
They are fearful and angry not because democracy doesn’t work, but because it does despite their own media and political efforts to warp it.
When a party is hijacked by radicals and uses almost any means necessary to gain and use power for agendas that few Americans support, then average voters express their disapproval.
That reality apparently terrifies an elite. It then claims any system that allows the people to vote against the Left is not people power at all. [https://torontosun.com/opinion/columnists/hanson-why-is-the-left-suddenly-worried-about-the-end-of-democracy]
In November, the Natural News website said the lawless "Biden regime shutting off fuel, energy supplies... [is a] act... of war against We the People":
Jason Hayes, the director of environmental policy at the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, blasted the Biden administration for its energy policies, telling Fox News that their work on Line 5 is “just one more example of being divorced from reality.”
Hayes presented a dire picture of what shutting Line 5 could mean if people are unable to get natural gas or the electricity it provides as the nation heads into winter.
“I hope it doesn’t end like this, but where I see it going is unfortunately the same thing that happened in February in Texas: People freezing in their homes,” he said.
Pipeline is “essential to the lifeblood of the Midwest”
The deliberate shutting down of this pipeline is an act of war against We the People, as the Biden regime transforms America’s heartland into an active theater of war which will soon face widespread food scarcity, energy scarcity and inevitable civil unrest.
The Biden Administration is considering shutting down a Michigan oil pipeline despite warnings from Republican lawmakers who believe the move would result in fuel price shocks throughout the Midwest.
The administration is exploring the possibility of terminating the Line 5 pipeline — which links Superior, Wisconsin, with Sarnia, Ontario — and gathering data to determine if shutting down the line will cause a surge in fuel pricing, according to published reports.
In a letter dated Thursday, 13 Congress members — led by Ohio Rep. Bob Latta — urged the president to keep the oil line in operation, saying: ‘Line 5 is essential to the lifeblood of the Midwest.’ [https://www.naturalnews.com/2021-11-09-biden-regime-shutting-off-fuel-energy-supplies-as-part-of-wartime-embargo-against-we-the-people-famine-collapse.html]
Moreover, the website stated that seceding from a tyrannical Biden regime is an "option" as "Sen. Cruz isn’t calling for secession at this point, but he’s clarifying that it may be the last remaining option if Democrats continue to wage actual warfare against America in their quest to destroy this nation":
With alarm bells going off over Biden’s deliberate destruction of America’s economy, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is now voicing what millions of Americans are already thinking: At some point, the remaining “free states” have to cut ties with Washington D.C. and form their own new nation, just to survive the planned civilization suicide being pursued by the demon-possessed Democrats.
In a recent speech at Texas A&M University, Sen. Cruz stated:
If the Democrats end the filibuster, if they fundamentally destroy the country… if they pack the Supreme Court, if they make DC a state, if they federalize elections, if they massively expand voter fraud, there may come a point where it’s hopeless…
We’re not there yet, and if there comes a point where it’s hopeless, then I think we take NASA, we take the military, we take the oil.
Importantly, Sen. Cruz isn’t calling for secession at this point, but
he’s clarifying that it may be the last remaining option if Democrats
continue to wage actual warfare against America in their quest to
destroy this nation.
Is the Biden federal government a lawless regime?
The non veni pacem website makes a good case that it is:
A tyrant cares not about the Judiciary; he is above the courts. A tyrant cares not about the Legislative Branch; he makes his own laws.
If this isn’t tyrannical, what does tyranny look like?Imagine if Trump had done this. [https://nonvenipacem.com/2021/11/09/what-does-a-dictatorship-look-like-and-how-does-it-differ-from-this/]
Did Thomas Jefferson agree with Sen. Cruz on the secession "option" in the case of a tyrannical federal government like the Biden regime?
Walter E. Williams who is a John M. Olin Distinguished Professor of Economics, George Mason University, apparently quoting "The Papers of Thomas Jefferson" wrote:
Jefferson said, Whensoever the General Government assumes
undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no
Historian Tom Woods explains in his book "Nullification: How to Resist Federal Tyranny in the 21st Century" that secession is a lawful "constitutional tool the Founders envisioned":
Unconstitutional laws are pouring out of Washington...but we can stop them.
Just ask Thomas Jefferson. There is a "rightful remedy" to federal power grabs--it's called Nullification.
In Nullification: How to Resist Federal Tyranny in the 21st Century, historian and New York Times bestselling author Thomas E. Woods, Jr. explains not only why nullification is the constitutional tool the Founders envisioned, but how it works--and has already been employed in cases ranging from upholding the First Amendment to knocking down slave laws before the Civil War. In Nullification, Woods shows:
* How the states
were meant to be checks against federal tyranny--and how a growing
roster of governors and state attorneys general are recognizing they
need to become that again
* Why the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution reinforces the rights of states to nullify unconstitutional laws
* Why it was left to the states to uphold the simple principle that an unconstitutional law is no law at all
* Why, without nullification, ordinary Americans will continue to suffer the oppression of unjust, unconstitutional laws
* PLUS thorough documentation of how the Founding Fathers believed nullification could be applied
is not just a book--it could become a movement to restore the proper
constitutional limits of the federal government. Powerful, provocative,
and timely, Nullification is sure to stir debate and become a constitutional handbook for all liberty-loving Americans. [https://www.amazon.com/Nullification-Resist-Federal-Tyranny-Century/dp/1596981490]
