Public communication to the Santa Cruz Board of Supervisors at the Special Meeting, May 29, 2020
Here’s text from the 2nd paragraph of the Declaration of Independence, the foundation of the Organic Law of the United States of America:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”
The unalienable, natural rights spoken of above are reserved to us under the Ninth Amendment. The requirement that the governments of both the United States of America, and the several states uphold their duty to secure these rights cannot be, and is not suspended by any executive declaration of a “state of emergency.” The Supreme Court ruled in 1953 that Truman could not even take control of the U.S. Steel Industry in the middle of a war.
The duty of this Board to secure our rights, including our freedom of movement and rights to livelihood, not to mention control of our personal medical decisions, is well-settled and absolute, as reflected in the oath of office that you took upon taking office, which says, in part:
“I will bear true faith and allegiance to the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of 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 Supervisor.”
“Gavin Newsom’s 4-Step Plan for Reopening California” is not only a unilateral declaration by an executive that does not have any power to suspend our unalienable rights, but doesn’t have the legislative authority it would need to have any impact on the population of California. While researching this amazing plan, I could not find a single instance of any commercial media even vaguely inquiring whether there might be any question about the Plan’s lawfulness.
We’ve now apparently entered into an unprecedented suspension of long-recognized Social Polity, which is affecting not only Santa Cruz, or California, or the U.S. itself, but most of the nations of our world. In enabling this, gentlemen, you have clearly violated your oaths of office and your duties to your constituents. How you have avoided violation of you own consciences is, quite frankly, beyond me.
It’s time to do the right thing, and begin the work of restoring the social order that you’ve damaged so severely.
Public Communication to Santa Cruz Board of Supervisors, June 2, 2020
In this room, last Friday, County Officials maintained a unified front saying that they’re basing their actions against the rights, livelihoods, and mental health of the people Santa Cruz on what you called “science.” But, despite the fact that many of the comments to you in these meetings have pointed you to the real scientific research which has flooded the internet, which contradicts the County’s official story on “the pandemic,” you seem unable to look at anything that contradicts the narrative you cling to and proves that your actions harming the people you purport to represent do not follow common sense and are, in fact, unscientific.
You say that “the pandemic” is making you violate our lives. But the truth is that this narrative you’re receiving from unnamed sources that you clearly obey, is leading you to do this violation of us. Your excuses for what you’re doing are empty and fraudulent.
You are complicit in conducting deliberate psychological warfare against us. You want us to believe that suddenly all of the people of the world are no longer responsible for our own lives and health, but are now merely quivering protoplasm that is unable to maintain its own health, and is a constant pernicious threat to what you call “public health.” You claim the authority to control our lives to mitigate this threat, a threat which will never again go away.
Rather than basing our decisions on the spiritually informed understanding that everything we experience in our lives has an important purpose, and that we, as free beings, have the agency to meet any challenge and live in harmony with our families, friends and neighbors, we’re now to accept that random outside forces will be attacking us from now on, and that we need government, that is, you, to arrogate to yourselves, the power to defend us, at any cost to our lives. You want us to see anyone who does not accept your edicts based on this assumed authority, as our enemies and potential threats to our very lives.
In short, you want to remove our agency to live our lives as free women and men. You have shown that you’re willing to use the power of the state you claim to represent to force us to suppress our understanding, impulses, and intuition, and to cower in fear. This despite the fact that we see that your edicts and agenda are based on empty lies. We must ignore what we see and obey. Most importantly, we must remain silent in the face of this crazy-making aggression.
