(Natural News) Republican senatorial candidate for Illinois Bobby Piton and Sam Bushman of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers of America (CSPOA) emphasized the importance of constitutionality amid the Biden administration’s unconstitutional moves during the Dec. 6 episode of “Steel Truth” with Ann Vandersteel on Brighteon.TV.
Bushman, the CSPOA’s operations director, gave examples of other sheriffs following the example of Constitutional Sheriff Richard Mack. He cited Elko County in Nevada as the nation’s first constitutional county.
“They literally had their sheriff, their district attorney (DA) and their county commissioners all unanimously agree to become a constitutional county. They used our CSPOA resolution we created in one of the conventions in Las Vegas for this purpose to act as a template. They took that, they made it stronger [and] they became one of the first constitutional counties.”
However, Bushman said he does not name constitutional sheriffs as an example because they often “have different views.” He added: “There are a few sheriffs standing up, but they don’t all agree on everything. They all have their own minds and we have to look at them individually.”
The occasional co-host of “The Sheriff Mack Show” on Brighteon.TV elaborated on what constitutional sheriffs are. He said each constitutional sheriff differs in “how bold they are in kicking the federal government out of county matters” with the support and backing of the people.
“There are dual sovereignties in America, and the federal government has [a] very limited scope [of] power by the consent of the governed – defined in the federal or the general government’s constitution. The states have their own constitutions, and they have a lot broader discretion and power within a given state. When you get down to the county level, they even have broader power – [with] the sheriff being the executive of that county or that jurisdiction,” Bushman said.
“We must not forget that the people’s consent and vertical and the horizontal divisions we’ve intentionally created must be understood and carried out. Those who represent [the people] get their authority from We the People who gave our consent. They don’t have power if we didn’t give consent.” (Related: Small town declares itself a ‘constitutional republic,’ won’t follow blue state’s tyrannical mandates.)
Constitutional sheriffs have duty to protect citizens’ rights
Vandersteel brought up the matter of Biden’s vaccine mandates implemented by what she dubbed as “non-constitutionally chartered administrative state organizations.” These entities include the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Food and Drug Administration and the National Institutes of Health.
She also mentioned an instance where employees from the Houston Health Department (HHD) were knocking on people’s doors asking about their vaccination status.
Back in November 2021, 100 Percent Fed Up reported that four HHD employees were going door-to-door at an apartment complex asking whether or not residents have been injected with the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine. Footage from a home security camera showed the four mask-wearing individuals holding clipboards and taking down notes.
Bushman said it is the duty of constitutional sheriffs to ensure that the rights of citizens in his jurisdiction are respected.
“The sheriff not only can do that, it’s his duty to do that very thing and say ‘You’re gonna come into my jurisdiction, you better have your act together, whoever you are.’ The fact is, they’ve got to obey the law,” he said.
“The sheriff needs to say ‘First, do you have your paperwork in order? There’s due process in my county; people are innocent until proven guilty. I’m going to insist that these people’s rights are respected, that due process happens and that all is in order.’ That’s the American way, and that is the sheriff’s duty – in my opinion. If he doesn’t do it, he’s got a dereliction of duty.” (Related: Sheriff Mack wants law enforcement officers to lead the way in helping America wake up and resist government overreach – Brighteon.TV.)
Piton: Constitutional sheriffs can take back the republic
Piton believes constitutional sheriffs will play a key role in restoring election integrity and taking back the republic in the process.
The GOP senatorial candidate for Illinois said: “I am 100 percent in agreement that this is the route we need to take as a nation to restore our rights. We have to take it back through the sheriffs. We have to have sheriffs who are brave and courageous enough to follow the law and arrest existing politicians and judges that violate the law. I’ve been calling on sheriffs that would do that – to actually hold everybody to one set of laws.
“Will you arrest a judge who is proven to be violating the U.S. Constitution? Will you arrest a politician that openly violates the U.S. Constitution? Why are we not arresting politicians that are openly calling for Americans to be raped with these vaccines? We would never tolerate a public official saying you have a right to rape a woman or a man against their will, because you think it’s in their best interest.
“Until we have sheriffs that that actually stand up and use their power to arrest these scumbags, we’ve got bigger problems. I think it’s a wonderful route to take; We The People should use that as a litmus test, and I do think this is the path for us to restore the will of We The People.”
