UT County Passes Resolution Saying Its a Sovereign Authority
After Bundy Ranch, it was really just a matter of time before this occurred:
The resolution says that federal officials who intend to exercise law enforcement powers shall first declare to the county sheriff their intent to enter Carbon County and then get permission to do so.
Carbon County now joins LaVerkin in the tinfoil hat world. LaVerkin, you might recall, once passed a resolution banning the U.N. from the southern Utah city.
Carbon County’s resolution, which passed the commission unanimously, was spearheaded by the county’s public lands director, Rex Sacco, who publicly opposed an attempt to put Nine Mile Canyon on the National Register of Historic Places, warning in a letter that it would be a precursor to a UNESCO World Heritage Site and an eventual U.N. takeover of Carbon County.
Those black helicopters are everywhere.
It should be noted that Carbon County receives millions of dollars in Federal aid, such as the 1.2 million dollars it gets from Health and Human Services programs or the 7.8 million dollars it receives from the Department of Education.
Since they’re a sovereign authority now, I’m guessing they’ll be giving all that money back.
