{STATE OF CALIFORNIA }  {City and County of San Francisco } I, _________________________________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will (Print Name) support and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of California against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the Constitution of the United States and the State of California; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties upon which I am about to enter and during such time as I hold the office of ______________________________.

I have written and rewritten this article many times over the past two weeks. While one side of me wants to support our local and state police the other side wants to point out the many violations of their Oath’s of Office. With that written I will jump in headfirst and accept the slings and arrows thrown at me.

The above Oath of Office is standard across the 50-states and local police forces for the most part. You can also find them in your states Constitution. I did a DuckDuckGo search for the California Highway Patrol this morning because of Governor Newsom’s order of closing Orange County beaches to the public. Please notice, only Orange County beaches.

Not to pick just on California we read and see on the boob-tube daily of governors around the country exceeding their authority by signing State of Emergency (Executive Orders) declarations that violate many amendments to the US and State Bill of Rights and expecting police to violate their Oath of Office. Yet most police departments do not push back on exercising these orders.

I keep coming back to the thought, why are police not pushing back to say, “no! Your order violates amendments to the US and State Constitutions.

I had a discussion awhile back with my best friend who is a retired city police officer about just this subject. His opinion was he was hired to enforce the laws of the city of which he worked for and to “let the people in black ropes sort it out.” Interesting position huh? I would suspect that the majority of LEO’s share his opinion. I think it is a position that, in their own minds, pardons them of executing EO’s or laws that violate their US and State Constitutions.

This mindset is not just a local or state one held by LEO’s, it walks the halls of the FBI, DOJ, BATF&E, etc. Just look at what is coming into the light concerning the Lt. General Flynn drama. Yes, it is apparent that the FBI’s goal with Flynn was to get him fired, have him serve time in jail or discredit him. Let’s add to this drama several others that revolve around President Trump and of course former Sec. of State, Clinton. So, when does it stop? When do LEO’s honor their Oath of Office and push back on leader’s unlawful EO’s or laws?

Nuremberg Trials – “I was just following orders”

There are County Sheriffs, City & local police that refuse the unlawful EO’s or laws from their Political Bosses however, they seem to be the few when compared to the others who’s actions are in violation of their Oath of Office.

In closing it is important for all to understand that the Progressive Political Leaders of today will be in position of power in the fall. When we will all see a return of the Chinese Virus. These same political leaders have learned a lot and will be prepared to roll out even more draconian EO’s or laws. I ask my LEO friends, how will you act when called upon to go against your Oath of Office? Just in case you are not aware of the US Bill of Rights, here is a link to them. Please read and bring up your own states Constitution too. May I also ask the American Partisan readership to do likewise. Understand, remember, and exercise your rights. If you don’t use ’em you will loose them.
