“California ‘sanctuary city’ declares itself a Constitutional Republic …”

“A city council in California overwhelmingly voted to declare the city a “Constitutional Republic City” to protect “our citizens’ rights as much as we can” in light of federal and state mandates

“What we are doing is protecting our citizens’ rights as much as we can on the local level. In a way, we are acting as a sanctuary city for our citizens and their rights and freedoms protected by the US and state constitutions. Gavin Newsom modeled this type of declaration for us when he declared San Francisco a sanctuary city for what he believed to be overreach by the federal government against his citizens,” Oroville Vice Mayor Scott Thompson told Fox News Digital. 

Thompson requested the measure, which was passed 6-1 by the city council on Nov. 2. The resolution is intended to allow the city to opt-out of enforcing “any executive orders issued by the state of California or by the United States federal government that are overreaching or clearly violate our constitutionally protected rights.”

This action is not tied to one specific mandate, such as President Biden’s vaccine mandate on businesses, with Thompson telling ABC 7 that it’s in response to “the large amount of mandates that are affecting every aspect of our lives and our kids’ lives.” 

Comment: Well, well, pilgrim turcopoles, “Gateway to Butte County?” This will be interesting. “Here the embattled farmers stood and fired the shots heard round the world?” pl

    LOL. Bet the Looney Left didn’t anticipate their “Sanctuary (or sanctimonious, perhaps) Cities” tactic being deployed against The Narrative/The Science.

    I’m guessing the initial coordinated media attack will go along the line of White Supremacy.

    Gold Country Oroville is MAGA country.

    On the other hand, our local coastal city council voted to be a nuclear free zone. Such is the diversity of political thought in this state.

    Other than the uber-left coastal cities, much of California acreage wise is conservative, sane and hardworking. Only 5% of California is urbanized – mainly LA and SF areas, the rest is real country with mainly agrarian values. Miles and miles of empty but highly productive land.

    And then there is Silicon Valley and Hollywood.

    In California, “sanctuary cities” served to protect the teachers unions, who were filling their K-12 classrooms with waves of high-birth rate illegals coming through the state’s open borders. Sanctuary cities protected the mandatory K-12 enrollments once they arrived and settled. Got to keep those teacher union dues flowing. High birth rate illegals are the teacher union’s cash cows.

    What did Obama say, punch back twice as hard?
