As many know, I’ve attended many city council meetings in Vallejo, California, and surrounding cities in the last nine years, prior to the bogus Coronavirus hoax shutdown, which completely eliminated private citizens being able to address their Goverment, the same one that steals their money with income taxes none of us agreed to. Many exciting City Council meetings, like the one where the Mayor ordered the Chief of Police and two of his police officers to remove me, when it was my turn to talk, for criticizing a homosexual, which I have every right to do.
So, when I moved to North Dakota in June, I was excited to be able to attend City Council meetings and to start publicly saying exactly what is going on, to refute the lying media narrative about the virus and so much else. Well, when I attended my first City Council meeting, three weeks back, in Killdeer, ND, expecting to speak, there was a rude shock awaiting. In Vallejo, CA, and surrounding areas, ANYONE, who wishes to speak, can do so by handing in a speakers card. Shockingly, you have more rights in California than you do in North Dakota. In North Dakota, the city council requires you to GET PERMISSION a few days prior to the meeting, to speak at the meeting. Consider, if one of the Council members has done something wrong, and needs to be called out in public over it, do you think they will give you permission to speak? Of course not. The function of the First Amendment was to allow every citizen to speak their truth, regardless of what the government thought about that truth. The idea that government bureaucrats get to decide if you can speak or not is outrageous.
So, expecting the North Dakota Attorney Generals office to do their duty, I called, explained the situation to a nice lady named Angie, who promised to have someone call me back. Within an hour, a polite woman named Liz, she won’t give her last name, the secretary of the Attorney General (remember the Attorney General and every other elected state official in every state in America took an oath to uphold the Constitution, which means ensuring every citizen has the right to speak at public meetings) calls me back to inform me she has been instructed to tell me that the state District Attorney cannot help me, I must get a private attorney.
My brother Robert informed me that all state officials duties include upholding the Constitution.
From Article 6 paragraph 3: The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.
So, will be calling local sheriffs and the state attorneys office again tomorrow, to remind them what their duty is. Anyone who can join me in calling the attorney for the state of Newtown, who believes he has a right to dictate what citizens say in public meetings, Liz at the attorney generals office, and the local sheriff, to encourage them to protect the rights of all citizens are appreciated. If one of us has our first amendment rights tampered with, the First Amendment rights if all of us are not safe. The First Amendment is followed by the Second Amendment, so when the government tries to silence you, you can use weapons to preserve your speech. For, if your government does not recognize your right to speak, you’d be deceived to think your life matters at all to this Government.
For those of you who value free speech, I’d appreciate your calling to uphold it here in North Dakota. Please let the Newtown city attorney (+1 (701) 421-8997), the North Dakota District Attorney (+1 (701) 328-2210), and the Newtown county sheriff ((701) 627-5222) know that you believe every American should have the right to address their elected officials.
They will try to use the argument that they don’t have time. That is preposterous. Vallejo allows public comment in a city of 120,000, and Newtown doesn’t even have 2,600 residents.
