I read a series of books several years ago (I have them as PDF) by T. C. Sherry; the first one is “Deep Winter”. Tells a story of about how almost every damn thing that can go wrong, does in a SHTF scenario. Collapse of the Feds, banks, earthquake, volcano, nuclear fallout, illegal assumption of authority by the Feds, and finally, war. There are three volumes: Deep Winter, Remnant, and Shattered.
It speaks of how the county sheriffs in this country have the final absolute jurisdiction in their respective counties. above and beyond that of any other local LEO, State trooper, NG, or Federal agents; period.
Back during the Comrade Obamski regime, our chocolate flavored president felt he did not have enough control over we indentured servants, so he gave money, arms, and other military type equipment to counties all over the country, to increase their power…the string attached was that they were “obligated” to obey Federal mandates as necessary.
Many counties followed this unconstitutional subtle group of “suggestions” by the wannabe King, and since, the counties have broken away from being mandated by the President…by the way, the Executive Order is not in the Constitution, and according to the above article, many EOs are challenged and won, as there is no precedent for said Executive Orders to become law.
The bottom line is, support your local Sheriff at all costs. He is one of the good guys.
Certainly, not all sheriffs are rural country bumpkins, and many sheriffs are elected in the big city, and are nothing more than warrant servers, and handing out summons, but still, according to the Constitution, are the last line of defense in protecting their citizens from everyone; especially the Federal government.
Orange cat had her offspring yesterday. the wife was frantic, and Orange Cat found yet another secret hiding place in which to have her kitties.
The wife’s detective abilities however, outshined the cunning Orange Cat, and found 3 little ones in a stash behind the air conditioner.
A front blew through and dropped the temps into the sixties for the high today…tomorrow will be similar with 90s expected later next week…spring time in Texas.
SIL has gone off the deep end, and has dropped thousands of dollars on what I think are worthless upgrades in and about her yard, including an above ground pool (in process of being installed), some expensive work in creating slate sidewalk in the back yard, and a complete redo in the front yard with a gaudy path of cobblestones across it.
You can’t take it with you, I guess.
The wife is still in good health after her J&J vax last Monday with no visible negative reactions.
