In tonight’s mail…

I recently attended Sheriff Richard Mack’s National County Sheriff Project in Las Vegas. It was without a doubt one of the most important liberty conferences in America. For those of you who don’t know, the county Sheriffs are America’s last hope.

The major topics of discussion were:

1.       National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)
2.       Agenda 21
3.       Other examples of Federal Tyranny and testimonies from Constitutional Sheriffs who are resisting

This was one of the most inspiring conferences I have ever attended.

Approximately 200 attendees (mostly sheriffs and police chiefs) from around the nation listened to key-note speakers such as Thomas Woods (Author of “Nullification”), Stewart Rhodes (founder and president of Oath Keepers), Larry Pratt (founder and President of Gun Owners of America) and Tom DeWeese (founder and President of The American Policy Center). We also heard from many Sheriffs from different States around the nation who have had to take on the Federal Government on a variety of issues.

It was quite clear that Federal tyranny is an ever increasing national problem that negatively affects every American’s liberties.

The most inspiring part of the conference was not only to hear from all of the individual brave sheriffs who are taking a stand to uphold their sacred Oath to support and defend the Constitution, but a number of states and local municipalities are also in the process of implementing Constitutional solutions to all of this federal overreach.

For those of you who are not familiar with the National Defense Authorization Act let me quote an excerpt from an Oath Keeper’s article:

The NDAA “…contains provisions that authorize indefinite military detention and trial by military commission of “any person” – including U.S. citizens and lawful residents – upon the mere say-so of the President or one of his subordinates in the Executive Branch, such as within the Department of Defense or CIA.”

“…This claimed power will kill our Bill of Rights unless it is stopped. To be blunt, we consider the NDAA of 2012 to be a declaration of war on the American people, and an act of treason. But even if you disagree with that view, and merely consider those who voted for it to be oath breakers, please work hard to remove them all from office. Oath Keepers members across the nation will lead or assist efforts  in their states to remove any member of Congress, regardless of party, who voted for this monstrosity. We encourage all Americans of whatever political party to set aside their differences and come together in defense of our Bill of Rights by rooting out this den of vipers in Washington D.C. who are either knowingly killing our Bill of Rights, were too concerned with their careers to take a principled stand by voting against the NDAA, or are “useful idiots” who don’t understand what they swore an oath to defend. Whatever their excuse, they have violated their oaths to defend THE Constitution and must be sent packing. This is not about politics. This is about defending the Constitution.”

As Oath Keepers Founder Stewart Rhodes put it:

“These politicians from both parties betrayed our trust, and violated the oath they took to defend the Constitution. It’s not about the left or the right, it’s about our Bill of Rights. Without the Bill of Rights, there is no America. It is the Crown Jewel of our Constitution, and the high-water mark of Western Civilization. As two time Medal of Honor winner Marine General Smedley Butler once said ”There are only two things we should fight for, one is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights.” “Time to fight.”

Two states (Montana and Wisconsin) out of 9 states in America that have a Recall provision in their state Constitution have issued Recall orders of all of their Congressmen and women who voted for NDAA. In El Dorado County, Colorado, they have issued a Resolution of Nullification thereby rendering this law null and void within their county borders. Their Sheriff is standing bravely behind them.

This incredibly destructive law is causing a firestorm all over America. Since the law recently passed, I have been talking with a number of patriots all over the state of Florida and everyone agrees that a statewide meeting needs to be called and the sooner the better. We want to make sure that “…We the People…” let Governor Rick Scott, Attorney General Pam Bondi and the Florida Legislature know that we do not recognize this outrageous infringement of our Constitutional Rights. Plus we want to identify the Florida Congressional Delegates who voted in favor of this Freedom destroying bill so we can send them packing.

The Florida Legislature is in session. If we can get key leaders from all 67 counties (Tea-Parties; 9/12 groups; Agenders; Campaign for Liberty; Save America Foundation; Libertarians; Constitution Party members etc.,) to get on board with a comprehensive strategy we will stand a much better chance of winning this battle in Florida.

The Statewide Conference will be held Saturday, Feb., 18th, from 10:00 to 2:00 PM at the College of Central Florida (formerly CFCC) Due to limited seating capacity of 400 seats, you must R.S.V.P. by pre-registering at http://berniedecastro4sheriff.com/event-registration/?action=register&event_id=1.

I look forward to seeing you on February 18th and I look forward to working together with all of the great patriotic Americans in Florida. Let’s get it on. We can accomplish a lot more working together. I could care less who gets the credit as long as we accomplish our goal of PRESERVING OUR LIBERTY!


In Christ and In Liberty,
