Sheriff’s Race On The County of York (ME) Heats Up….Now The Rest Of The Story

“The Tuesday, June 10, primary will decide the election of York County sheriff as three Democrats but no Republicans are vying to replace Sheriff Maurice Ouellette, who is retiring this year.

Chief Deputy Sheriff William King Jr. of Saco, South Berwick Police Chief Dana P. Lajoie of Berwick, and former sheriff’s deputy Paul Main of Alfred are running to oversee operations of the York County Jail.

William King, the current chief deputy at the York County Sheriff’s Department, was appointed by Ouellette in 2010 as acting chief deputy and then appointed to the position permanently in 2013. He has the backing of Ouellette, who has endorsed his deputy for the position.” Read more HERE.

These “three candidates for sheriff are pointing to the pasts of one another – and defending their own – in a race that all agree has gotten unseemly. Retiring York County Sheriff Maurice Ouellette said he has been disappointed by the tone of the campaign there, especially because voters are choosing candidates for a law enforcement post, not a political one. He said it’s demeaning to the office of the sheriff and “that’s what I object to.”” Read more HERE.

The “tactics” used to mar the “race”, the candidates claims of credentials, qualifications, abilities, education, experience and Sheriff Ouellette’s comments reveal that none of the above understand the duties, obligations and responsibilities of the sheriff, nor do they understand their sworn oath to the constitution of Maine.

“”The office of sheriff has a long and noble history. It dates back over a thousand years and originated in England. The sheriff is the only elected law enforcement official in America. He is the last line of defense for his citizens. He is the people’s protector. He is the keeper of the peace, he is the guardian of liberty and the protector of rights. A vast majority of sheriffs will agree with all of this until they are asked to apply these principles of protection to federal criminals. Their back peddling and excuses will be more plentiful than radar tickets and louder than sirens at doughnut time. Most of the unbelievers, who themselves have taken a solemn oath to “uphold and defend” the U S Constitution, will passionately and even apologetically exclaim that they have no authority or jurisdiction to tell federal agents to do anything, let alone stop them from victimizing local citizens. The truth and stark reality is that it’s just the opposite; the sheriff has ultimate authority and law enforcement power within his jurisdiction. He is to protect and defend his citizens from all enemies, both “foreign and domestic.” Sheriff Richard Mack

Exposure is the name of the game.

The original Constitution of the State of Maine (1820) states in part in Article V, Part First, Executive Power, Section 8: “He [Governor] shall nominate, and, with the advice and consent of the Council, appoint all judicial officers, the Attorney General (emphasis is mine), the Sheriffs, Coroners, Registers of Probate and Notaries Public……….” click here.

This is an Executive Department function ONLY. All of this belongs in this department.

State of Maine 1855 Resolve, read more HERE.

(View 1855 Resolve, click here.)  Here is what the 1855 resolve states in part: The sheriffs, judges of probate, and registers of probate (no more land agents) became elected by the people which expanded the powers of the people unlawfully. That is an Executive department function ONLY (see Article V, Section 8 in the original constitution).

“Overall, what the 1855 resolve accomplished was to “weaken” the Executive department, and in 1976 it was further weaken it with the elimination of the Executive Council.

This 1855 resolve also removed the ability of the Governor, with the advice and consent of the Council, to nominate and appoint their own Sheriffs who are also “field persons” who go out into the “terrain” called counties and execute the laws of the state. This repugnant 1855 resolve allowed the Sheriffs to be elected by the people (electors).

All fraud and treason.

How can the electors know who are the best persons to do the job of a Sheriff? They don’t. That is the job of the Governor and the Council to select the best qualified persons in order to execute the laws of the state.

In essence, this 1855 resolve “did a number” on the Executive department by removing the ability of the said department to choose their own Attorney General and their own Sheriffs who are the “field persons” to do the best job possible in order to execute the laws.”

It’s time for the Governor, the Legislators and the people on this state to wake up! It’s time for the Governor to take immediate action…he has the help of knowledgeable people…and restore our constitutional republic. Failure to do so will only  make matters worse….especially with Federal agents “on the scene.”

  1. Hi!

    Do the candidates realize that when they are “elected” by the people (electors) since the 1855 resolve (resolution) passed unlawfully by the electors that became an unlawful amendment that they do NOT enter a lawful public office (see Article 5, Section 8 – original constitution)?

    What they do in a non-existent office is actually null and void. They have NO lawful delegation of authority to act whatsoever. They must operate in a “lawful” public office, the sheriff’s office, in order to act properly to execute the laws of the state. In essence, all sheriffs are supposed to operate from the executive department since it is the governor who MUST execute the laws of the state (Article 5, Sec. 12).

    In Article 5, sec. 8 (original constitution) it specifically states that it is the governor who nominates and appoints sheriffs with the advice and consent of the council, and it is the governor and the council who are best suited to find out who is qualified to become sheriff. The electors can’t do that as they have NO means to accomplish this plus it is unlawful to do so. They were never given the authority to do so from the start. The 1855 resolve by the legislature and the electors “stole” from the executive department by removing the governor and the council from the process of selecting sheriffs. The legislature had NO delegation of authority to agree to the 1855 resolve and send it to the various towns, plantations and cities for the electors to vote on it. They have NO authority to “use” the electors to do their “dirty” work.

    If they didn’t understand what they were doing, then they had a remedy in Article VI, sec. 3 whereby they could have asked a “question of law” to the justices of the Supreme Judicial Court.

    Did they?

    Apparently not since it passed unlawfully.

    Since they didn’t use the remedy, then it follows that they committed fraud and treason against the people.

    The Founding Fathers of Maine did not leave public officers stranded with no remedy as they knew full well that some of them would lack comprehension of their powers or lack of it.

    Article III, Sec. 1 speaks of 3 distinct departments with different powers = separation of powers.

    The legislature has NO authority plus the electors have NO authority to “steal” the powers of another department.

    The selecting of the sheriffs is an executive department function since they operate from the executive department. They are the “representatives” so to speak of the executive department in order to execute the laws of the state.

    NO getting around this lawfully.

    Fraud is fraud, and treason is treason.

    The legislature of 1855 and the electors committed fraud and treason against the people. A fraudulent, pretend law is NOT law so those, who are elected as sheriffs since 1856 when it went into effect, did NOT and do not occupy a public office. They actually operate from NO office as it is non-existent to start with.

    No public office = no delegation of authority = no title of sheriff.

    They (pretend sheriffs) are outlaws and criminals.

    Keep in mind that the sheriffs are the “field persons” who execute the laws of the state in their respective counties. They must be commissioned (commissions provide the person so named in his commission with a public office and a title), must post a bond that they purchase themselves and provide at least 3 sureties that meet the mandates of the governor and the council. If they violate the people’s rights, then their bonds can be sued out. All deputy sheriffs must follow the direction of the sheriff and follow the constitution.

    Can candidates for sheriffs be lawfully elected by the electors?

    Absolutely not!

    How can they be elected lawfully to a non-existent office with a non-existent title of sheriff?

    They cannot.

    Furthermore, who are the electors today? See the voter application form that you can get at your local town/plantation/city office which says “federal question.” Why federal question? What is the federal doing in our state elections?

    All fraud and treason against the people.

    Isn’t the original, constitutional State of Maine a free and independent state?

    Yes, it is.

    P.S. If you do not “keep up” with this education, then you can easily get lost very quickly. It is very overwhelming for some people but it must be learned in order to understand what has happened to our free, independent state established and ordained by the people, for the people, and of the people.

    This no longer exist today as there is a tyrannical government in place today operating against the people and treats the people as subjects/slaves.

    All for now.

    Thank you!
