Oroville, CA is where the large Dam almost breached a few years ago. One wonders if that is in their future now.. Hmmmm If it does ‘breach’ than the town is toast. It is about 75 miles, NW, of Lake Tahoe. A defeated town would buckle under, in their grotesque point of view..

The town of Oroville, California, has declared itself a “constitutional republic” following over a year of restrictive coronavirus lockdowns and mandates in the state.
The bold move comes after Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom issued an executive order that will extend parts of his March 4, 2020, emergency proclamation powers until March 31, 2022.
According to the East Bay Times, Oroville responded to the extension by declaring that it will not enforce “any executive orders issued by the state of California or by the United States federal government that are overreaching or clearly violate our constitutionally protected rights.”
The resolution was passed with a six to one vote at the city’s Nov. 2 council meeting.
“With all of these emergencies and leaders declaring emergencies it puts one person in charge and they can do pretty much what they want even when the emergency is no longer an immediate threat, they were they are reluctant to give up that power,” Oroville Mayor Chuck Reynolds said.
“We stand by and believe in our constitution; our republic and we believe that many times others in state and federal government are exceeding their authority across the board in everything we do,” Pittman said.
“Mandates eliminate personal right of choice — to get vaccinated or not, to vaccinate your kids or not — and violate basic constitutional choice we all have.”
The town has made it very clear, however, that it is not promoting anarchy.
“This mandate is not saying we are against laws or for anarchy,” Scott Thomson, Oroville’s vice mayor told KOVR-TV. “We’re not talking about one mandate that’s been pushed on us recently … It’s a barrage of mandates.”
One worker in the Department of Health Care Services told The New York Times, “Nobody should mandate somebody else to inject poison into their body … There’s not enough research on this vaccine.”
That is the issue. The state is trying to mandate personal decisions. That is overreach.
The city’s officials noted Oroville was not quick to pull the trigger on this resolution.
