Sheriffs Need to Take The Lead











By Sheriff Jim R. Schwiesow, Ret.

"If the law supposes that,’ the law is an ass, an idiot.' Thus, the law is stupid.” -Mr. Bumble of the Charles Dickens' novel Oliver Twist


“And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers” -Luke 11.46

It is important to understand that the U.S. Code contains many thousands - a multitude - of statutory laws. Arguably one cannot get through a day without violating one or more of these statutes; they are all inclusive, intrusive, and invasive to every segment of our day to day existence. They are a virtual web of entrapment and they have been specifically drafted to that purpose. These statutes are a practical catch-all that enables the control of the people by the federal government through its increasingly oppressive and tyrannical enforcement agencies. The U.S. Code as it exists is an enemy of justice and it separates the people from their God-given and inherent liberties.

Those who insist that statutory law is not binding because it was enacted without the consent of the people are barking up the wrong tree. In the secular subjective minds of the federal judiciary and the federal government the statutes of the U.S. Code are binding and enforceable. Some people are hard learners and those who shun the spiritual path just do not understand that they will never of their own ability bring about a return of Constitutional government, common law, or any of the other tenants or personal freedoms of a Constitutional Republic.

I am actually weary of the writing of articles; they do little good other than to provide some entertainment. Every day I get up and realize that I am living in a nation overrun with idiots; my Dad would have said should he have lived in these days, that these haven't enough sense to pour pee out of a boot.

Those who think that these laws, many of them blatantly unconstitutional, are not binding upon them and that they are not subject to a totalitarian state are full of it, baloney that is...the federal prisons contain many who thought likewise and they will languish in those prisons until the sentences expire on their transgressions of certain capricious and arbitrary statutory laws that were imposed by a system that now has complete autonomy over the people. Who will risk the wrath of the agents of a totalistic system to come to their aid or defense? The answer is no one. To put it bluntly we are screwed, and the only consolation and comfort I have is the fact that these abominable degenerates will stand in the blinding presence of the Lord one day and there will be a great wailing and gnashing of teeth in the face of His judgment.


I do admire and respect those who have fought an almost continual battle to bring this nation back to its roots as a Constitutional Republic. I am afraid that those so disposed are few and the few are hostage to the will of the majority - a now completely deceived, ignorant, and indolent people - that have eschewed personal liberty in exchange for federal and state entitlements (unearned government handouts).

We once were, but are no more, a spiritual people. The Apostle Paul predicted that we would be in these days a people having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof. Indeed we are a nation of counterfeit Christians. Satan and his legions of demonic angels have been released from God's bounds and given the agency to work their will upon a morally filthy people.

When I entered the law enforcement profession we, in my state, were functioning under the last vestiges of Common Law. Embedded in our laws were props for upholding the moral principles of God's Commandments. The lower courts were still occupied by individuals that were selected by the people. Our cases were most often initiated by a petition - or filing - with an elected Justice of the Peace, and the Sheriffs' were sovereign and endowed with the authority to summon the power of the county and, through the Governor, the power of the state. The all-encompassing and all-corrupting bureaucracies had not come to the full realization that they have achieved today.


“Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.” -Luke 11.52

In 1977 the state legislature of my state - without rational reason and at the instigation of the state bar association - undertook a massive revision of the state code, including the criminal statutes. The elective offices of the Justice of the Peace and the Township Constable were eliminated without a slightest protestation by the people. The Justices of the Peace were replaced by politically appointed judicial magistrates and it was mandated that these be lawyers.

This new codification of laws became, as a whole, a net of secularly enforced controlling statutes that regulated every minute aspect of the lives of the people, just as the U.S. Code assures a federal corporate ascendancy over the exclusive personal rights of the peoples of the nation. All laws that affirmed the moral principles embodied in God's Commandments were removed and made void. The people rejoiced they could now commit immoral acts, revel in degrading and base behavior, and flaunt their vices before God. Indeed the people of this nation jubilate for the license to sin without condemnation that has been granted them by an irreverent system.


To solidify this seizure of a body of law of and by the people the legislature further reorganized the judicial system. At the constant and insistently aggressive demands of the Chief Justice of the State Supreme Court the legislature caved in to his continual carping and badgering and removed the Office of the Clerk of Court from the county elective process and established state authority over the office. The erasure of the principles of common law was now complete.

The courts of all levels of government now either refuse or dismiss petitions submitted under Common Law. Some lawyers (there are yet some whom I respect) privately complain that the steady and ever-increasing creation of new statutes and the continual appending of revisions and additions to these have seriously disrupted an accrual of case law that has greatly impeded justice.

My state was not alone in its surrender to the progressives as it was joined in the departure from common law and the institution of arbitrary statutes and decrees by the other states. The laws in the entirety of this nation are now employed to enforce corporate government control over the people rather than to administer true justice. Laws are piled upon laws; even un-elected bureaucrats are given the authority to write administrative decrees that have the force of law. We are completely under the rule of a corporate system, and subject to the whims and caprices of those in the judiciary and beyond of no accountability to the people.

The displacement of state power by federal power, in regard to criminal law and the regulation of morals, is essentially complete. The individual states have allocated the powers that accrue to the tenth amendment to central governmental authority. Much of this I believe was that they could abrogate the responsibility for the welfare of their people and pass it unto the feds. They were most happy to line up at the trough - along with their indolent subjects - for federal handouts. In doing so they were bound to servitude to a central government by the prerequisites that were attached to these grants and so-called endowments.

Attempts to stem the tide in regard to this bastardization of the laws were sporadic, weak, and futile. Weak-minded citizens and an ignorance of fundamental Constitutional law aided and abetted the dedicated and ever agitating enemies of government by the people.


The story of Corporate Federalism has been written in this nation, and the writing began in 1861 with the onset of the civil war. There are those who contend that the civil war was God’s judgment as punishment for the pursuance of slavery, in point of fact this hypothesis is both fictitious and spurious. The war was fought to roll back or nullify the tenth amendment and to establish corporate federal control over the states. Nowhere in the Constitution is Congress given authority to regulate local matters concerning the health, safety, and morality of state residents these police powers are reserved - by the tenth amendment - to the individual states.

Until the last quarter of the twentieth century, this allocation of governmental power was viewed with grave concern by constitutionalists and by those explicating the superiority of a true Constitutional Republic over all other forms of governance. We have now come to a complete voluntary capitulation to federal corporate control and are on a short road to world governance.

The usurpation of state-rights and the allocation of power to corporate federalism could not have been accomplished without the complicity of an ill-educated people. I believe that the people are not truly intrinsically ignorant, but that they have been brought to such cognitive deficiency and falsity of thought by a patient, dedicated, and socially pervasive program by progressives to debase and replace righteous thought with degraded ideology, this to enable that one-world socialist government that these disciples of the devil pursue.

To the cadence of unrighteous men this nation marches methodically and steadily upon the road to perdition. The present void apropos a moral foundation has accelerated a descent into the smoky chambers of the dark domain and doomed the souls of the millions that are being piped down this road by those that are corrupt of heart. Venal men are the undoing of this nation, who else is there to blame, but those who follow them.

Prepare your hearts for the coming of the Son; confess your sins and abjure your attraction to a Godless world, and He will be faithful to hear your prayer. And all God’s people say, Amen!
