Virginia Legislators Enact Their Vengeance On Constitutional Sheriffs

This is wickedness.  The Holy writ: “For the Scripture says, “YOU SHALL NOT MUZZLE THE OX WHILE HE IS THRESHING,” and “The laborer is worthy of his wages.”  [1 Timothy 5:18].

So says the Lord.  The obvious solution is to pay the legislators nothing for their “services” and see how they like it.

    Time for the 2nd Amendment Virginia counties to make the move to West Virginia.

    I take this as good news. This is the beginning of men from boys stuff. For those sheriffs who have thus far stood up, they will have harder choices ahead. This will get much worse before it gets better. The time is now to find out who you can trust, not after the bullets start flying.

    That government, the government that denies God, would muzzle the ox is just more proof of evil in our day. There are other such verses which fall under the heading of a Just Balance which would be subordinate to the 8th and 9th Commandments among others perhaps, and as always, the first and great commandment.

    Lev 19:36
    Prov 11:1, 16:11
    Eze 45:10

    And NT
    Luke 10:7 are the words of our Lord
    Col 4:1
    James 5:4 pronounces judgement against this.
    And of course, Jesus whipped the money changers.

    Seems pretty clear to me.

    Voters need to find out which, if any, legislators can be “recalled” and if any, and start such action immediately. If none can be recalled, then its time to make sure they don’t get voted back in and make sure the next time one of them gets stopped and flashes his ID, that he/she doesn’t get any breaks at all. Give them the costliest ticket you can.

    I’m guessing now since deserving LE People won’t be getting fair raises, some may seek work in other professions in hopes of keeping bread on the family table.

    The lunacy in all this is the fact that NOW this move will possibly bring even more crime and violence into the lives of Democratic / Communist supporters, yet these voting idiots will continue to stuff these King Pin communist morons into offices of power that rule over them.

    I wish I was in position to answer these actions from an official position, I’d tell them where to stuff their money!

    Bribary, crime and corruption is now openly practiced so it seems. Surly some type of State, or Federal charges can be brought forward – based on what happened here?

    Err, didn’t the Communist try this with Trump?
    Witholding funds for Ukraine, unless they played by his rules lol?

    Imprison the Bastards!

    Out west the sheriff is paid by the county. Also, counties should withhold all fine monies it generally sends the state. (local traffic court sends a portion all fines to the state).

    Maybe they should conduct a little “civil forfeiture” against those legislators…two birds, one stone.

    Just exactly how is this voting “thing” going to work. Ohio and Florida Republicrat governments have enacted red flag laws. The RINO governor of AZ wants the legislature ot pass a red flag bill for him to sign. Orange man’s philosophy is “take the guns, decide later”, bypassing muh constitution altogether. Maybe it should be Emperor Orange Man.

    Might not be a good idea for certain VA Senators to travel through certain Sheriff’s jurisdictions.

    “Do you know why I pulled you over Mr. Saslaw? Is that marijuana I smell Mr. Saslaw? Mind if I search your vehicle?”

    “Democrats want to restrict a citizen’s right to protect themselves, but won’t pay our sheriffs’ deputies to protect Virginians. Hypocrisy has a name.”

    Hypocrisy does indeed have a name, but in this case it’s not “Democrats”. This is not hypocrisy.

    It makes perfect sense when you consider the Democrats’ goal is not “public safety,” as they claim. It’s not now and has never been about “public safety”. It has always been about controlling law-abiding citizens.

    The Left passes unconstitutional edicts, and citizens declare they will not comply. The Left responds by ordering law enforcement to enforce their unconstitutional edicts, and LEOs declare they will not comply.

    So now the Left is declaring they will not grant pay increases to LEOs that will not comply with their unconstitutional edicts. This will negatively impact public safety, but that’s a price the Left is willing to pay.

    Because it’s never been about “public safety”; it’s about control.

    When understood in that light, the Virginia Democrats’ move is not hypocritical at all. In fact, it makes perfect sense!

    I wonder how the Sheriff and Deputies feel in, say, Fairfax county.

    Be glad when your enemy reveals himself. Rule by Politburo and councils is what they want.
    We aren’t Russians and comrade kommissar Ayers better round up his estimates.

    When it comes to politicians and communists, I agree.

    In the beginning of America the politicians didn’t get paid, they did it for the people.

    I have never seen a deputy that would not be overpaid at minimum wage. Finally the Dems did something worthy. I guess it is true about blind hogs and acorns.
