Cumberland County, N.C. – While the Chief Hawkins of the Fayetteville Police Department and Sheriff Ennis Wright of the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office are bowing, kneeling and kowtowing at the feet of their Democrat masters bleating “Yes sir, yes ma’am, three bags full!”, the rank and file law enforcement officers who are actually in the streets performing real law enforcement duties make it clear that they will adhere to their oaths of office and not violate anyone’s constitutional rights…PERIOD.
Several rank and file law enforcement officers responded to statements made by their command staff and local news services. Their identities will remain anonymous so that they will not have to endure unethical job termination or “canceling” but, as always, they will have a voice through TPTN.
Spring Lake Officer: “Our department has had a bad enough reputation lately without adding this nonsense to it. Anybody can see that it’s unconstitutional.”
Fayetteville Police Officer: “I won’t be “that” officer. I’m not the mask police and I won’t be either. I’m sick and tired of being made a political tool. My job is to enforce law, not make some crazy politician’s candidacy possible. I’m working on getting a job in a red city and getting out of this train-wreck called Fayetteville. It’s just not worth it anymore.”
N.C. State Trooper: ” Not in my job description and not any businesses on our interstates that I’m aware of anyway.”
County Deputy: “Don’t call us wanting someone arrested for not wearing a mask. We won’t do it. If you tell someone to leave your business and they don’t, then we’ll arrest them for trespass, not for not wearing a mask.”
“I, [NAME], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and maintain the Constitution and laws of the United States, and the Constitution and laws of [State] not inconsistent therewith, and that I will faithfully discharge the duties of my office as a law enforcement officer of the [Name of Department] so help me God.”
Every law enforcement officer in the State of North Carolina has a solemn obligation to weigh every single order given against this oath of office to determine if said order violates their oath. And if it does, the law enforcement officer is required to set aside such orders and not enforce them.
Notice that the law enforcement officer’s oath of office is not demanding loyalty to a Chief, Sheriff, or any person. Nor does it demand loyalty to any “department” or any other organization. Rather, it demands that the law enforcement officers’ only loyalty is to the ideology that created this great nation and has served to make the United States greater by far than any other nation in the world. While people and organizations can fail us, our national ideology never has.
Also, note that the oath of office places the order of priority of the final say as the;
- Constitution of the United States
- Laws of the United States (not inconsistent therewith)
- Constitution of [State](not inconsistent therewith)
- Laws of [State](not inconsistent therewith)
Nowhere in the list do you even find mentioned the words; executive orders, mandates, requirements, orders, ordinances, decrees, or compulsory, none of which are laws in any sense of the word as none are enacted by the legislature as a body politic which is the only way a law can be created.
The truth of the matter is a person cannot be arrested for not wearing a mask, law enforcement will only get involved if the situation escalates into a criminal matter such as a business demanding a customer leave and the customer refuses to leave. Then the issue becomes “trespass” and no longer has anything to do with masks.
If any business wants to drive customers away forever by being mask fascists then that’s on them. The risk of business failure is yours to take if you moronically choose to do so.
Many are pushing back hard stating that it is not their responsibility to be involved in enforcing unconstitutional masking mandates or orders.
Businesses are stating that they have no authority whatsoever to tell anybody what to do, especially a customer. That’s the job of the police and only then if it’s constitutional.
Government has no authority to press-gang businesses into a mandate or executive order enforcement role for a state, county, or city. Add to that, if the state or a county or city are requiring businesses to perform some action on their behalf then the state, county, or city need to pay the businesses for this service on their behalf. After all, do you see any state, county, or city performing any significant services for businesses for free?
According to the order (remember, not a law), face coverings are not required by someone who:
- Is unable to wear a mask for medical or behavioral reasons
- Is under 5 years old and whose parents are unable to keep them safely masked
- Is in a private, individual office
- Is actively eating or drinking
- Is communicating with someone who is hearing-impaired in a way that requires the mouth to be visible
- Is giving a speech or performance for a broadcast, or to an audience, where they maintain a distance of at least 20 feet from the audience
- Is participating in worship activities in which a mask would hinder participation
- Is removing their mask for identification purposes
- Would be at risk of injury from wearing a mask at work as determined by government regulations or workplace safety guidelines
So tell us, by what authority, and with what training or experience, does any representative of a “business” have a right to demand information about, and make any decision upon;
- Any medical or behavioral condition of a customer?
- to demand the ages of anyone’s children or determine that any parent is unable to keep them masked?
- to determine what is a “private” or “Individual” office or not?
- to determine who is actively eating or not?
- to determine whether or not someone is deaf and reading the lips of their associates?
- to determine just exactly what is a hindrance to a worship activity?
The 4th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution states very clearly that;
Fourth Amendment – The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
We are all wondering how any business representatives are going to obtain search warrants from our judicial system that would allow them to legally intrude upon our lives and demand such information from us.
And then notice the play on words by many of the news services that are designed to misinform you. Sentences such as;
“A countywide mask mandate, which includes the city of Fayetteville, is in effect, and businesses not in compliance with the masking rules could find themselves before a judge, officials said.”
First, a mandate is not a law.
Second, “businesses not in compliance with the masking rules could find themselves before a judge”. Again; rules are not laws and what’s with the qualifier, “could”?
Notice that the word “would” was not used. Ask yourself why that is. Could it be because it is an empty implied threat designed to psychologically manipulate you? Think about it.
“Cumberland County Attorney Rick Moorefield said Friday, if a business or any building open to the public fails to enforce the mask requirement, the health director can file a lawsuit asking a judge to order the business to comply.”
Notice Moorefield said “can” file, not that the health director “would” file ay such lawsuit. Again with the empty implied threat designed to psychologically manipulate you.
What they fail to mention is that the business that has a lawsuit brought against them can certainly seek an injunction against the county until the case is decided in addition to asking the court to force the county to pay all court costs if they fail to prevail in their lawsuit. They also fail to mention that the majority, if not all, of such lawsuits are won by the businesses in the higher courts on appeal if they lose in the lower courts.
But that’s only if the county actually wins in a court of law. As it stands now, they are losing the majority of these cases. See;

You are an American. You have constitutional rights. But that’s only if you stand firm, demand adherence to them, and enforce them.
You will not be alone. “We the People” decide how we are to be treated, not “officials”. After all, they answer to us, not the other way around.
