John Shirley, a Constable in Hood County, Tx., is under fire for being a long-time leader with the Oathkeepers, a patriotic organization that demands for police and military personnel to honor their oath to the Constitution.
Shirley wrote an article in the Hood County Today admitting that he has organized on behalf of the group while confirming that he is not ashamed of his ties to the organization, which he feels has been unfairly maligned.
“In that time I’ve seen the multiple waves of attacks by the media and progressive NGOs. The Oath Keepers organisation has been called right-wing, racist, anti-government, a militia, among many other hot-button epithets,” Shirley wrote.
“From the beginning, the Oath Keepers have been a non-partisan organisation almost exclusively dedicated to teaching first responders and soldiers to respect their oaths,” he added.
The fake news media, such as Yahoo News and Raw Story, are using anti-Bill of Rights, far-left organizations such as the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to denigrate the Oathkeepers and Shirley for organizing with the group.
The ADL calls the Oathkeepers “a growing anti-government extremist group whose avowed purpose is to enlist current and former military, police, and first responder personnel into its ranks in order to oppose a supposedly “tyrannical” government.”
The SPLC claims that the Oathkeepers are an “entire organisation is based on a set of baseless conspiracy theories about the federal government working to destroy the liberties of Americans.”
Tarrant County Sheriff candidate Vance Keyes, a Democrat Party official who was demoted from Deputy Chief in 2017 after being accused of releasing unauthorized police video to the public, believes that all constitutionalists must be purged from law enforcement positions.
“I am absolutely concerned about militia groups infiltrating law enforcement,” Keyes said. “Their presence in policing undermines our obligation and ability to provide impartial justice…free from the thinly veiled, and often outright, racial bias that exist in such organizations.”
Roger Deeds, the sheriff of Hook County, noted that Shipley, serving as Constable, is an elected official and does not think that the slurs made by leftist media outlets and special interest groups about the Oathkeepers are accurate.
“I’ve read that they’re made up of people who are anti-government but I don’t think that’s correct,” he told The Independent. “I don’t think they’re anti-government. This guy is running for reelection so he’s bragged about being a member.”
Shirley hopes to be re-elected as Constable despite the media’s hit pieces against him. He hopes that the public recognizes that there is nothing wrong with a law enforcement official upholding their oath to the Constitution.

Pelosi is Emboldened by Coronavirus Bailout, Vows to Dupe Republicans Harder Next Time
The Democrats’ socialist agenda is winning big during the coronavirus panic.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) pulled the wool over the eyes of President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans with last week’s $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package. The disaster relief money was earmarked for many liberal pet projects, and Pelosi aims to do the same thing for the next round of bailouts.
She said on Monday that House Democrats are already preparing another massive stimulus bill, using the coronavirus pandemic to enact more socialism. She is likely to include massive infrastructure spending and serious government intervention into the health care markets in the upcoming legislation.
“Our first bills were about addressing the emergency. The third bill was about mitigation. The fourth bill would be about recovery. Emergency, mitigation, recovery,” Pelosi said during a conference call.
“I think our country is united in not only wanting to address our immediate needs — emergency, mitigation, and the assault on our lives and livelihoods — but also, how we recover in a very positive way,” she added.
Republican leaders are up in arms about how Pelosi is exploiting a crisis to get her partisan agenda muscled through Congress, but it is unclear if they have the courage to actually stop her.
“They’re approaching it — it seems like — as an opportunity to pass their political and ideological agenda. We’re approaching it as, ‘How do we protect the public health and our economy?’ And those are pretty divergent goals,” Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) said.
Pelosi is eager to exploit the coronavirus crisis quickly and use the panic and fear in the public as an excuse to massively increase government spending and control.
“I do think that it is really important that as soon as we are here, we are ready to pass legislation,” she said.
President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans did Pelosi’s bidding when they moved forward a $2 trillion bailout bill that included funding for liberal policy goals that had nothing to do with the coronavirus.
Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) sounded the alarm over the sham and attempted to get Congress to actually deliberate and vote on the bill. It instead passed on a voice vote with most legislators sequestered away from Washington D.C.
"This was a wealth transfer… do the math. The $1,200 check is just the cheese in the trap" @RepThomasMassie stood alone in Congress against last week's 2 trillion-dollar stimulus package. He explains why it SHOULDN'T have been a controversy. #istandwithmassie pic.twitter.com/nPPNYh5vkS

Massie’s principled stand against Pelosi’s profligate spending bill earned him a tongue lashing from President Trump, who now wants Massie replaced in Congress because he’s too conservative.
…& costly. Workers & small businesses need money now in order to survive. Virus wasn’t their fault. It is “HELL” dealing with the Dems, had to give up some stupid things in order to get the “big picture” done. 90% GREAT! WIN BACK HOUSE, but throw Massie out of Republican Party!

With no Republicans seemingly willing to stand up against Pelosi, there will likely be more bailout socialism on the way as the Democrats use coronavirus for their far-left power grabs.
