    Colorado, and apparently Texas (next) are being targeted with an attempt to set up a federal authority framework that will enable Secret Service agents (not just those guarding the president), and others of the U.S. Secret Service including uniformed division officers, physical security technicians and specialists, and other ‘special officers’, to arrest and remove an elected sheriff for refusing to enforce the law (or anyone breaking the law).

    The bills being introduced defines law as including any rule, regulation, executive order, court order, statute or constitutional provision.

    Why are they doing this? Here’s why…


    It would establish federal authority police powers in a State, enabling an enforcement arm reporting directly to the president (the Secret Service).

    Well, the article says bills are being introduced, but doesn't give a number for the bills so we can look up what is being introduced. Makes me think this is a conspiracy theory type of thing....(not that I trust the .gov, mind you, just can't verify the information....)

    Further, the Supreme Court has already ruled that the Federal government cannot make a local LEO enforce a Federal law. (Check Printz v US, 95-1478 "Justice Antonin Scalia wrote the majority opinion. He stated that early federal statutes did not suggest that Congress thought it had the power to direct the actions of State executive officials. Also, the overall structure of the Constitution implies that Congress may not direct State officials: “The Framers explicitly chose a Constitution that confers upon Congress the power to regulate individuals, not States.” Finally, although it is the President's job under the Constitution to oversee execution of federal laws, “The Brady Act effectively transfers this responsibility to thousands of CLEOs in the 50 States, who are left to implement the program without meaningful Presidential control….”
