From page A5 | January 08, 2014 |

VACAVILLE — Siskiyou County Sheriff Jon Lopey is the guest speaker at the next Vaca Valley Tea Party meeting, 6 t0 8 p.m. Jan. 15 at Pietro’s No. 2, 679 Merchant St.

Sworn into office three years ago, Lopey has nearly 36 years of law enforcement experience and strong ties to Solano County. He is a 1972 graduate of Vacaville High School and attended Solano Community College and Sacramento State University.

Lopey served for a brief time with the Vacaville Police Department before joining the California Highway Patrol, where he spent nearly 33 years as an officer, sergeant, lieutenant, captain and assistant chief.

He served in a variety of assignments in East Los Angeles, the Bay Area, and numerous other Southern and Northern California locations.

Lopey is among the rural sheriffs in Northern California, southern Oregon and elsewhere who’ve dubbed themselves “Constitutional sheriffs.”  More information can be found at www.constitutionalsheriffs.com.

The public is invited. Please RSVP to Colleen Britton at 514-0360 or email vcatpp@gmail.com.

    Sounds like a great event! Can't wait to see what the difference is between a "Constitutional" sheriff and what we have now.

    If you're in law enforcement, you have taken an oath and are bound by the Constitution. “Constitutional sheriffs?” Really? If you hold a political office, you are bound by the same document. Some in US Government have decided that is not the case and have challenged the rights of American citizens thus challenging the Constitution. So I worry about folks that find it necessary to declare their Constitutional obligation as if letting you know what you didn’t know all ready. They are typically Conservative’s that want to force their religious agenda on the public. Need an example? States like Texas, Florida, Ohio, Georgia, Texas, and Arkansas are trying to do an “end around” the Constitution to satisfy their (religious) interpretation. Go ahead prove to me the Tea Party is not an organization made up in a majority of white, Conservative American citizens and their version of the Constitution is not a little different than most everyone else. The dismissing of that “not a Party” Party has begun. Thankfully.

    CD, you very obviously know nothing at all about the Constitutional Sheriffs, nothing about what they stand for nor what they have sworn to do to protect your rights. Do more of your much-vaunted research, CD. If you still find a reason to complain about the Sheriffs, CD, then you are one misguided soul. At this time, the Sheriffs are the last hope for rural America, particularly regarding protection from your EPA, CARB, and so forth.

    FDC, really? You are SO over-reactive! Like I said, I KNOW their responsibilities, they took an oath. Care to respond to the Constitutional dismissal from your Conservative friends?

    CD, it would seem reasonable that sheriffs, like the Siskiyou sheriff, are referred to as "Constitutional" law enforcers to point out that many of our law enforcers ARE NOT Constitutionally-based. CD, you're not saying that things all law enforcers do are Constitutional, are you?

    The Mister, I clearly stated the obvious. There really is no argument here.

    When those of us who have done so, swear to Defend the Constitution of the United States....how many have even read The Constitution, and tried to fully appreciate and understand its meaning....Our entire Government especially at the Federal Level is totally out of Bounds....The Federal Government now totally controls every aspect of our lives....Mark of the Beast coming soon.....CD a Question for you.....Would you be willing to be microchipped to receive your healthcare?

    I believe the reason these sheriff's call themselves "constitutional" sheriff's' is because of the bizarro world we live in where citizens rights are trampled, and the state goes unpunished. To me, it's akin to food producers having to label their goods "organic" as opposed to the chemically laden stuff that is just thought of by the uninformed masses as "food".

    CD, if you knew what you are talking about I would be worried. As it is, I sleep well knowing that you sit back in your prigdom and hurl your little mudballs at people who disagree with you without any real reason other than your own ideology.

    FDC, you should be worried but your myopia keeps you frozen to the dark. That wasn't an opinion, I presented factual evidence but that is of little importance to you. You're always wasting my time with denials and avoiding my credible points. Just once please go forth and check my comment, you’ll probably be shocked!

    As before, bluff and bluster from the Paramount Prig. You spouted a bunch of generalizations, non sequitars, and your own suppositions and called them "facts." Sheriff John Lopey and his colleagues in the Constitutional Sheriffs association are nothing at all like the dreary picture you painted. Have you even watched the video for the link that the reporter provided? Obviously not. You should hope that someday you might, just might be able to measure up to a man like John Lopey. No point in talking to you, CD, you are happy in your quaint prig sty.

    FDC right. My comments were not against the Sheriff's but that's okay, you like to have to the last word so you have it. Just remember where when and by whom you heard these issues. They are taking place now, so pay attention as they become bigger news. Good evening Sir.

  • Check it out Tea Partiers Today Tuesday on Infowars...January 07, 2014 - 10:42 am

    On this Tuesday, January 7 edition of the Alex Jones Show, Alex continues his coverage of the Fukushima radioactive ocean plume making its way toward the West coast of the United States. Officialdom in California remains perplexed by an increase of radiation and has downplayed its significance. Alex also takes a look at a call from the corporatist media for Obama to dispense with Congress, the Constitution and the American people and demand he instead rule by decree like a Roman autocrat. On today's show, Alex talks with Dr. Christopher Busby, a director of Green Audit Limited and a visiting professor at the School of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Ulster. Dr. Busby talks about the growing threat of Fukushima radiation. Alex also welcomes back to the program William F. Jasper, a researcher, author and editor of The New American. Jasper talks about transatlantic convergence and the under the radar threat of a globalist contrived Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership. Infowars Nightly News reporter Lee Ann McAdoo files a report from outside the Austin, Texas city council where anti-fluoride activists are holding a hunger strike.wwwinfowarscom
