W.G. spotted this article, and it might be considered more pushback from the states against federal overreach in the form of a flood of executive orders:

Horowitz: North Dakota legislators introduce bill to block Biden’s illegal executive edicts Op-ed

As the article notes, there are bills working their way through the legislatures of North and South Dakota that would in effect be a form of state nullification:

Recently, Rep. Tom Kading and eight other Republicans in the North Dakota House introduced HB 1164, which would task the attorney general with reviewing the constitutionality of the president's executive orders. If any of his orders are deemed to be unlawful, this bill would prohibit any state or county agency or publicly funded organization from enforcing the edict.

The list of issues covered under the bill are:

  1. Pandemics or other health emergencies.
  2. The regulation of natural resources, including coal and oil.
  3. The regulation of the agriculture industry.
  4. The use of land.
  5. The regulation of the financial sector as it relates to environmental, social, or governance standards.
  6. The regulation of the constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

Thus, an easy first candidate for such legislation is Biden's recent mask mandate, which unconstitutionally prohibits humans breathing without cloths on their mouths and noses inside any public transportation, including in-state ride-shares and taxis. The CDC created an entire criminal offense for something that never passed Congress.

There is a similar bill in South Dakota (and what piqued my interest here was that it is being offered by the representative for Harrisburg, a small town not far from my home town of Sioux Falls):

South Dakota already has a similar bill to HB 1164 targeting Biden's executive lawmaking. Rep. Aaron Aylward of Harrisburg, South Dakota, introduced HB 1194, which would set up an executive board to review the constitutionality of executive orders pertaining to the six issues laid out in the North Dakota legislation.

What seems  to be clear with various state resolutions and bills in the past few years, is that they are beginning to push back. We've seen Missouri pass state bills denying any state law enforcement being used to enforce any federal gun grab, South Carolina considering a bill to recognize any bullion coin as legal tender, Texas - well, where do we begin? - considering all sorts of measures and doing all sorts of things, like creating its own state bullion depository, attempting to woo NASDAQ's data center to Dallas, and even considering a referendum on secession. There are secession movements in California, Oregon, and Washington states, and on and on we could go.  Iowa recently passed a bill funding students directly, and bypassing schools.

Where all this will end neither I nor anyone else knows. I do think that the trend will continue, and grow more acute; it is a measure of how deeply the distrust in federal institutions goes, and it is a measure of just how deeply divided the country is. That divide, let me reiterate, is cultural, not just political.

That said, there's something suggested by this article that invites a little speculation, namely, that the two bills in the respective Dakotas appear to be coordinated, and that means there been a bit of talk back and forth between Bismarck and Pierre (the state capitals of North and South Dakota, respectively). Perhaps there have even been meetings over lunch or breakfast between respective legislators in the two states.

If my guess about coordination is correct, then it won't be long until one sees other American midwestern, plains, and southern states coordinating too.

Or to put it country simple, the fallout continues...

See you on  the flip side...

    As a non-American looking in, I’m coming to the ever stronger conclusion that these draconian presidential executive-orders are ????? to cause the break-up of the USA.

    For what it’s worth this is an interview I would like to share with you all that describes what the secession movement is up against–and why it should become real. If this young man’s testimony is true, the states must now move on their own. It will take a some re-evaluation of federalism to bring DC back in line with the citizen’s expectations. I just don’t know if they have the political will.

      This is an outstanding video!

      Shows the absolute infiltration of bureaucracy purposely stopping the Trump Administration, way before he even took office; let alone in his last days trying to get things done for his voters.
      [31:23] Every single media platform was in on the coup d’etat. The Associated Press; and the rest of the media, let loose the flood gates of propaganda – killing the truth of a Trump landslide. The institutions of the U.S.S.A; all too, were captured and supporting the coup
      Loved the clip at 32:23, “the F.B.Lie. is putting up on the bill boards, “If you know anything about the 6th[where this happened and that happened….]; all one big lie, after another. Joe not there Bidenenko is just a puppet for the Chinese, which everybody knows; but for John Brennan and Susan Rice. Evil is a the root of what is actually behind all this outright treason; which ironically, they’re accusing those trying to save the country of. With the whole media apparatus, “they” control the narrative[35:18].
      Great video! It goes into military questions as well; flushing out the conflicts there[at least to some degree]. The trend is to get as pure a left wing military as possible[42:00].
      Forget about free speech[this is an smart down to Earth 20 year old insider/43:25]. Think its bad now?

    End of Patriarchy?
    A. Ancient scripts tell us that sound is the first created thing. ( it is the pattern for all else in this universe. )
    B. Sound is the alteration of two opposite states
    C. Everything in the universe is alive to some degree
    Conclusion The first created thing has an archetypal and complementary nature making a unity and a dual thing at the same time.
    Ancient scripts say this ….. the archetypal/complementary nature of this universe is sexual.
    Humans are the only beings we know of on this planet, very present on this planet, that code sound like their creator to make culture and language.
    Question: What happens when a very intelligent species that creates somewhat as its creator creates, and does so with archetypal sexual sound, but does so in a sexually warped way i.e. uses the culture called “Patriarchy”, proceeds to do that for thousands of years?
    Answer : Humans are geniuses at causing the culture and all on this planet connected with that culture to be powerfully skewed.

    The age of Aquarius is an age of the masses or very horizontal and extremely vertical hierarchical patriarchy will automatically fall apart.
    The election of Biden is a good sign patriarchy is falling apart.

    A cultural door will open. Into the cultural void will automatically come the nature of the cosmos able to affect the nature of the culture that will fill the current void.
    New-age-communities are politically double-sexed and androgynous. ( “androgyny” here meaning sexually double not sexually indistinct ).
    There is a 26,000 year period of time the west calls the precession of the equinoxes. The people of India call it a Yuga.
    The Dark Age has the least energy for 2,000 of those years. The sign of Aquarius somehow has the most energy ( I have read).
    Though that does not seem to make sense scientifically.
    When a culture is catapulted from Pisces to Aquarius it enters into a shock. That shock puts humans into an evolutionary bottleneck. We evolve at breakneck speed at these times and also die off to a large degree.

    For survival purposes one needs to leave the dying patriarchy and help start a new androgynous culture. New Age Communities are proliferating already. They are politically androgynous.
    Do not be shocked if a little adolescent rebellion makes things go a bit too extreme in the direction of reintegration of lost matriarchy and as well, a too extreme reaction to the dying patriarchy.

    • Theresa Paulfranz on February 6, 2021 at 2:53 pm

      Feminism should stress that bio-femininity and cultural femininity are not the same thing. Putting a human bio-female into a political setting usually reserved for men has had little to no to even negative effects on the need for a double-sexed culture.

        If this is allowed the billionaires will buy up all the land for total control and consolidation of their customer base. What products you buy will depend upon what corporate district you are born in and we will all own nothing and be renters and slaves. To pay your rent and feed yourself in the corporate territory you are born on you will have to do whatever job is assigned you for whatever pay they allow you. All land will be owned by other corporations so in order to move to another area you will have to obtain corporate permission and agree to their terms of slavery. If no one wants your services you will be forced to serve your current corporate master. What happens if no corporation wants you anymore?

      Gone are the days when teachers who taught Civics taught not only the Consitution, but also required selections of readings from both the Federalists and the Anti-Federalists papers. I had such a teacher. The other problem? The majority of “statesmen” in the US Congress today cannot even name two of the authors or papers–because they are (s)elected for the degree of stupidity they possess. (I feel like I am in a snarky mood this morning–and I do know why.)

  10. Donkey on February 5, 2021 at 5:03 pm

    At the risk of oversimplifying the issue at hand; isn’t the core problem economic? I think anything short of defunding the Fed. Gov. e.g. through denial of taxes, won’t do. And how about retaining the payment for states representatives.?

    • OrigensChild on February 6, 2021 at 11:25 am

      That would be an interesting question to pose to Thomas Sowell. I would like to know his response. The underlying problem is certainly economic, but the political impact of Marxism on the economic cannot be ignored. I was watching a documentary on his life a few days ago. Listening to his arguments from a strong economic theoretical background, he hammered socialists constantly on the damage their interventions created in the cultures they were endeavoring to improve. Yet, the cynic and skeptic in me wonders whether exploitation was always the real goal. To use an agricultural metaphor, it does appear economics is the soil. It’s up to the gardener to decide which seed to plant, and as politicians, they are planting only those things that benefit their appetites–not their health. That is my best guess–and it is probably wrong.

    • zendogbreath on February 7, 2021 at 3:07 am

      It’s economic and not oversimplified. My guess is as CAF guessed that it’s all about absolving the Fed (and probably all other govt’s) of their debts – external and internal. They probably want to remove the internal debts more so.

    Here’s a few real questions:
    * Can a state law enforcement officer arrest and detain a federal law enforcement officer if the federal leo is trying to enforce an un-Constitutional law?
    * Can a citizen arrest and detain a federal law enforcement officer if the federal leo is trying to enforce an un-Constitutional law?
    On the face of it, it would seem the answer to the above questions should be yes.
    * In the case of such arrests, what is the process of adjudication?

      If by “can they” you mean “is that what the law says,” I don’t know. I do, however, think that if there’s disagreement between central and local gov’t, the letter of the law matters less than who’s going to follow which orders, and who’s going to support whom at the state/local level. I keep going back to the curious phenomenon of sanctuary cities that refused to obey federal law under the previous admin. That’s an example of what I mean: localities simply said they weren’t going to apply federal law. I’m not saying that’s good or bad–just using it as an example of the letter of the law not always being the determining factor.

    • Richard on February 5, 2021 at 4:57 pm

      Within the military code of justice there are areas where “unlawful orders” might come up and where the issuer be tried and a failure to obey not prosecuted but actually deemed a correction of the issuer. Rare, but not unheard of. Usually there are vetting processes along the way that bring to light questionable orders to presumptive subordinates. Currently there may be cause where rights and well being of the governed are in focus. Easily where national Security is concerned and where compromise has already occurred, and corruption recorded.

      • FiatLux on February 6, 2021 at 12:50 am

          It would seem so. Subtle repression takes on several forms.

          Statistically, there may be one or two soldiers driven politically, but NOT the entire force structure as the current regime of media politique implies are present. The reasons and motivations for enlistment vary far and wide as much as they are strategic for a fighting force.

          All military members remain persons of interest while in the military and out of it by three letter agencies anyway. It’s no secret. Their training makes them persons of interest as well as for hire. It’s far too easy to be setup to fail by an ambitious group of nefarious deeds with undermining strategies and tactics. All the more reason to behave-for-the-better, one might add.

      It’s my understanding that the county sheriff can arrest anyone who breaks the law in their county, including federal law officers, judges, politicians, and the DA. Now the DA or Judge might let them go afterwards and drop charges. Government forgets they only have power because we consent to let them have power. If they get too high off that power and start abusing it, it is our right to withdraw that consent as instructed in the declaration of independence. But it doesn’t come from that document, it comes from natural law. Meaning we are always free to say no to anything in life so long as we have the courage, will and ability to follow through with that decision.

    • zendogbreath on February 7, 2021 at 2:47 am

    • Roger on February 5, 2021 at 11:29 pm

      Just because they don’t follow just laws don’t mean we don’t have to. It’s every one’s duty not to follow unjust laws or enforce them. Too bad juries are not intelligent enough to know this without being told. If they abandon justice for injustice it is up to us to hold them accountable eventually if no one else will. Right now the world is in shock waiting to see how far they will take this, if law enforcement and the military will break their oaths and go along with this insanity, or if the checks and ballances will eventually start working again. If not, things will get interesting and we will find out if strong and brave men still exist. Basically no system, no matter how good it is, can last or work if people lose their morals and intelligence.

    It is refreshing to see states/state legislators push back against Federal overreach. But it is also disappointing because state Governors already have the power to nullify Federal statutes, without the need for state legislative action, and apparently they don’t realize it. The Federal Government is a creation of the states (a child), not the other way around. An org chart within the constitution would have been useful because it would not be subject to interpretation the way plain text is. The only path I see for redeeming the Federal Government is for the States to neuter it administratively. The most plausible theory I have read regarding what is clearly a deliberate attempt by the Marxists to split apart the United States is to ensure the unpayable debt of the US Federal Government goes unpaid. Clearly it is unpayable and should be cancelled.

    • OrigensChild on February 5, 2021 at 9:47 am

      This is one of the reasons why I wrote the piece the way I did yesterday. I also believe some states have within their respective constitutions additional safe-guards enforcing civil liberties. The states already have enough authority to push back–and right now some states are pushing verbally and legislatively. I agree with everything you and Dr. Farrell are saying. I welcome what the states are doing. It is a different time and a different place. Circumstances are different this time. Yet, states have historically shown more reluctance to actually do anything beyond what is already being done. This is trending in a positive way for the citizens if there is a commitment to damaging the Caesar Bidenchenko and his politburo, but we have to wait and see what actually happens when these laws go into effect. You know this is real when states recall their senators and representatives at the federal level and replace them with more people like Marjorie Taylor Greene. (Love her or hate her, she is dynamite with the fuse lit. Her removal from offices demonstrates the true stain in the Congress’ character. How can they not do the same for AOC?) If Wyoming pulls Cheney (and I don’t know that they will) the states’ political will may actually get someone’s attention. I really want Cheney out of there for a million reasons. But it’s the states call and those weasels in DC kept her in her post to make this more difficult. The real shots across the bow will come when there are enforcement of these laws and states begin to actually demonstrate greater authority in these matters. The States are setting the board for the game. I hope they show up to play. But I also know that in some key states the governors are wimpy, feckless and incapable. With their governors the legislatures and citizens are clearly not happy. I am still on Farrell’s side of the fence. Counter arguments, though, need to be considered to temper our expectations.

        The states already know the situation between Federal-State laws, edicts, etc.
        The issue is the Feds control the states behavior by taking taxes from the states and then sending the money back to the states in whatever grafty scheme they come up with.
        So the states behavior is dictated by the states getting money returned to them that the feds take in the first place.
        Not sure how far the state pushbacks will go when the feds start denying highway, health, education, military dollars to flow back to the states.
        The states need to stop the flow of dollars to Washington and defund the government.

        • OrigensChild on February 5, 2021 at 12:51 pm

          Yep. That is how I understand this to work, too.

        • FiatLux on February 5, 2021 at 2:07 pm

          Federal funding is an absolutely KEY point. It’s how the federal gov’t coerces/bribes the states into doing what they don’t technically, legally have to do. If any state is actually going to defy the federal gov’t, it’s probably going to need to issue its own currency–possibly backed by precious metals to make it credible, which makes all those state bullion depositories and recent bills/laws about precious metals all the more intriguing.

        • Richard on February 5, 2021 at 5:04 pm

          The shuffling of taxation and obstruction of resources without representation, or just as bad [misrepresentation], is currently being taken up by several states. Should be interesting where and when power mongering gets the boot.

      The other surprise is the incident was allowed to be published on The Drudge Report, a repository of fake media.

      • FiatLux on February 5, 2021 at 2:15 pm

        I dunno… When I read the article, it seems to me like (yet another) hit piece to discredit the store owner and, by extension, those who object to wearing muzzles or take issue with the latest encyclical from Pope Fausti and the Holy See D.C.

    • OrigensChild on February 5, 2021 at 10:14 am

      See… Whatever happened to the maxim, “The customer is always right?” Customer Service begins by focusing on the person–not the diaper!

          We are all plagiarizers here with respect to this type of bantor. Copy liberally and often. If I thought of it, I am certain someone else has.

    • Sandygirl on February 5, 2021 at 1:18 pm

      Reading the comments just shows what a great job media has done. They all have the correct answers. But not one comment on the PCR testing cycles used, the most important part.

      • OrigensChild on February 5, 2021 at 4:26 pm

        Sandygirl, you are absolutely right about that. I have decided, though it is by experience and anecdotal evidence, hardly no one wants to have the discussion you mention. Those who are interested in the facts know them. Those who are interested in the CDC and local potentate’s mandates are interested only in those. People in my community have been shamed on Twitter and Instagram for not wearing masks. This caused corporate backlash against some friends of mine–and I did not appreciate that one whit. (Talking about wanting to reach out and touch someone aggressively, I wanted to do it and hard. I’m not a violent guy.) We all have a list of stores we boycott over the mask issue and that has done little to curb their appetite for economic destruction. Those conversations went down the crapper long ago. This is why I am changing my approach to ‘customer service’. The customer is being forgotten. If this continues Walmart will have plenty of goods but no sales. People are fed up.

        • zendogbreath on February 5, 2021 at 11:56 pm

          Walmart’s friends are eliminating options to Walmart. Ok they are doing it much faster now. People are fed up and also feeling more cornered. People are complying more now than ever and not because they agree. They are complying because their livelihood depends on it.

          Declination of COVID-19 Vaccine for Public Safety Professionals

          Maine CDC, Maine EMS, and the MDPB recommend that I receive the COVID-19 vaccination to protect myself, my patients/clients, my colleagues, and others in my community.
          I acknowledge that I am aware of the following facts (please read and initial next to each statement):
          COVID-19 is a serious respiratory disease. As of December 16, 2020, over 300,000 people have died in the U.S. and there have been over 16 million people with confirmed cases of COVID-19.
          COVID-19 vaccination is recommended for me and all other public safety professionals to protect our colleagues and the communities that we serve from COVID-19, its complications, and death.
          If I contract COVID-19, I may remain infectious for 10 days or more. During this time, I shed the virus and can transmit COVID-19 to my family, colleagues, and the people we serve.
          If I become infected with COVID-19, even if my symptoms are mild or non-existent, I can spread COVID-19 to others. Symptoms that are mild or non-existent in me may cause serious illness and death in others.
          I understand that it is impossible to get COVID-19 from the COVID-19 vaccine.
          I understand that this vaccine has undergone rigorous trials and testing processes that met all the U.S. FDA requirements for issuance of an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA).
          I understand that receiving this vaccine will be essential to establishing herd immunity and eventually moving back to normal processes.
          I understand that mRNA vaccines do not alter, change, or even interact with my DNA.
          The consequences of my refusal to be vaccinated could have life-threatening consequences for my health and the health of everyone with whom I have contact, including my coworkers, my family, and members of the communities I serve.
          I understand that I’m being offered the COVID-19 vaccine and I’m electing to not get vaccinated. I understand that I can change my mind at any time and receive the COVID-19 vaccination.
          I have read and fully understand the information on this declination form:

          Signature: _______________________________________________ Date: ________________________

            What was the name of that bridge for sale again?

          • OrigensChild on February 6, 2021 at 11:28 am

            Richard, brilliant quip…

          • Robert Barricklow on February 6, 2021 at 1:41 pm

            That form, reminds me of another.
            Last year I was going to be admitted to the VA Hospital;
            admittance depended on being swab tested for the virus.
            I refused.
            Then I had to read a form & sign it.

            They were surprised, and kept asking why.

            For me; they should have known that answer.
            If they didn’t know; no matter what I said, wouldn’t matter.

    • zendogbreath on February 5, 2021 at 9:45 pm

      amazing. I started noticing a week into masking that coworkers were making stupid mistakes far more often. I saw excellent drivers with decades of experience damage vehicles making mistakes that beginners don’t make. Now am noticing that maskeraders voices are sounding wrecked. Worse than smokers voices I remember back in the 60’s when the vast majority of adults smoked.

    It’s as if the States are capable of taking back from the Federal (Executive) Government the power they already have to legislate as well as enforce.

    How does that go? . . “WE will not be subservient to any king/queen and their minions ever again and this is how it is done.”
