Yesterday, three businesses in Nevada County, CA, were given "orders" by "Strike Teams" to close.
They did not. Instead, the owners went to the County Sheriff's office and served cease and desist papers against the Nevada County Departments of Public Health and Environmental Health (under the County Health and Human Services Agency.)
Says Tara Thornton, in this video:
"Nevada County is forming the model of organization of businesses and community members to fight back and course correct on this.
"So today, three of the businesses... are here with papers to serve to the sheriff, requesting that the Departments of Public Health and Environmental Health cease and desist... these activities, because County public health requirements and restrictions are guidelines and not law..."
The complaint reads:
We are filing this formal complaint that we request you investigate regarding elected and appointed officials and their designees and representatives at the state and county level who conspired to:
a) Interfere in my right to protect my property and have been conducting unreasonable trespass,
Penal Code § 602.8;
b) Take my property without due process of Law, US Constitution, 5th Amendment;
c) Seize my business, US Constitution, 4th Amendment
d) Harass, Code of Civil Procedure § 527.6;
e) Intimidate and Coerce, Penal Code § 422.6(a);
f) Refuse to acknowledge the cease and desist warnings given by Assistance of Counsel July 15,
2020, various other in person warnings by the businessowner;
g) Deprivation of Rights Under Color of Law, Title 18 USC §§ 241 & 242;
h) Involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State; appear to be intended--(i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction; and which are acts of domestic terrorism. USA Patriot Act 2001, §802
We demand that Amy Ilrani, Nicole Johnson, and all other officials of the Nevada County Departments of Public Health and Environmental Health, under the direction of the County Health and Human Services Agency cease and desist all criminal activity outlined above. The orders from the California Department of Public Health are called COVID-19 Industry Guidance, and are guidelines, are not laws, not enacted by our state legislature, and are therefore not legally binding or enforceable, and null and void. “A law repugnant to the Constitution is void.” Marbury v Madison (1803) 5 US 137.
