If You Value Your Liberties, Stay Out of Coos Bay, Oregon!
On Thursday September 12th we held a work session with the city council. Two of which requested it themselves but we're not present. One (Dr. Muenchrath) was called into surgery, so he had an acceptable excuse. The other was councilor Daily. The only ones present were Oregon State PANDA Director Shane Ozbun, myself, the city manager, city attorney, police chief, and two city councilors; Melton and Groth. Four councilors and the mayor were not present.
The information, including an audio tape of the work session was provided the next day by the city manager to all who we're not present. No excuse was given for them not being there. There is absolutely no proof that those not present even read the material from the work session or listened to the audio tape, prior to the 17th when they unanimously voted it down. We were not allowed to ask any questions. Therefor, in my opinion that they failed to make a proper decision based on "feelings" instead of Constitutional facts.
On Tuesday the 17th, Rob Taylor with Coos Watchdog and myself were present during the City Council meeting where we were allowed only three minutes to present our position against the provisions in the NDAA dealing with American citizens and lawful resident aliens as unconstitutional. Also, we request they pass the Restoring Constitutional Governance Resolution (RCGR). The mayor refused to allow for open discussion, stating that "you've already had a work session on this."
We were not allowed open discussion and were angrily stifled by the mayor as she banged her gavel on the desk. At one point police chief Gary McCullough and a sergeant maneuvered behind staunch advocate Rob Taylor, preparing to either remove or arrest him, as he gave a passionate patriotic testimony, asking them to protect our liberties from the Federal government.
Councilor Daily made the motion to vote against it, after which it was seconded and voted down.
Several reasons were given. 1. That it' isn't within their authority to go against the Federal Government. 2. They just don't feel comfortable with it. 3. The Federal Government doesn't like it when we don't go along with them and this could cause problems for the city (paraphrased). 4. We don't want to tell our police not to do their job. 5. Let it take it's course through the courts to find it unconstitutional. 6. We don't have the authority to repeal Federal laws. 7. We can't determine if something is unconstitutional or not. 8. I just don't feel comfortable with this. 9. I just don't think it's part of our job as we we're elected to handle only city issues. Video included. Watch until you see us walk out.
Listen closely to the city attorney's concerns about passing the resolution and what could happen if they did. Even after we had proven that this does effect American citizens through documentation, a well done power point and congressional proof, including bills from several congressmen introducing a bill to repeal sections 1021 and 1022 that failed in the House. We showed them irrefutable proof how Senators Lindsey Graham, John McCain and Carl Levin pushed for it to include American citizens, calling America the battlefield.
Oath Keepers made it clear to the council that they are intentionally negligent in their Constitutional duties as to their oath of office under the U.S. and Oregon Constitutions. We showed them a list of venues across the country that have passed resolutions against the provisions in the NDAA; stating that out of all of these elected officials having passed resolutions, that they are all wrong and this council is right?
As previously suggested to the city council by The World Newspaper editor. Feel free to comment there.
"The anti-NDAA group should keep on doing what it’s doing: appearing before local governing bodies just like any other advocacy group. That local governing body can listen attentively, then get back to the job it was elected to do."
