Watch: California Town Declares Independence From "Dictatorship
Powers" Of State, Federal COVID Mandates

Authored by Steve Watson via Summit News,

A town in California has declared itself a “constitutional republic,”
independent of executive orders issued by the federal or state
governments, in protest of lockdowns, mask mandates and compulsory

Appearing on Fox News, Oroville California’s vice-mayor Scott Thomson
outlined the move, noting “I was sitting at City Hall, and the
mandates continue to come. As you know it started with ‘two weeks to
stop the—slow the curve,’ and it just seems like a carrot keeps being
dangled in front of our faces of just a little more… and it seems like
every mandate that comes down, it is a loss of freedom.”

Thomson compared Oroville’s move to that of San Francisco declaring
itself a ‘sanctuary city’.

    “We’re a constitutional republic, and wanna declare that,”
Thompson urged, clarifying “We’re not separating from California, but
we’re just reminding the higher-ups in other cities we need to stand
up for our rights. We still are a constitutional republic, which means
we have rights endowed by our ‘creator,’ and our founders created a
republic, which was genius, to separate powers.”

The vice-mayor further explained, “I believe that worldwide, but
especially in California, that the very fabric of our nation is at a
crossroads of how much authority we’ll let the government have,”
comparing the struggle to a war.

“I don’t believe that anybody wins when the government has more
authority,” Thompson emphasised, adding and “every time that you lose
freedom, usually it takes bloodshed to get it back.”

“We’re getting threats of loss of money for our city, but for us, and
especially for me, they can have their money; we want freedom in
California, we want freedom in Oroville, and so that’s what we’re
standing up for,” Thompson further urged.


    Scott Thomson, vice mayor of Oroville, California, explains why
his town has become a "sanctuary city" against tyrannical COVID
mandates imposed by Gavin Newsom.

    'Lesser magistrates' protecting citizens from government overreach
is a key way to fight back. More of this, please!
