(In case you missed it, take a glance at South Carolina PolitiChick Sonya Sasser’s informative article about the immense powers held by local sheriffs. Truly, they are the last line of defense between the people and the criminals, both from the streets and from the federal government. They don’t answer to the state or federal government. They answer to YOU…because you elect them. As elected officials, they are under oath to protect the Constitution above all else. Thus, if they think a federal law contradicts the Constitution, they are under no obligation to enforce it. )
According to the book They Fired the First Shot, “Sheriffs across our nation are standing up against tyranny and are winning their battles without violence, without protests, without lawsuits. How? Because constitutional power is clear as to who holds the final authority in local areas. Not the President of the United States, not Congress, not the Supreme Court, but the local Sheriff holds the authority and he is fast becoming the hero of the people.”
The states and the feds are almost powerless against the Constitutional sheriff…and they know it. That’s why they are now on the attack.
