Ken Timmerman’s Threat Watch, www.kentimmerman.com, 4-11-23

What I have feared for the past two years is coming true: the federal government has launched a selective and politically-motivated prosecution against a conservative sheriff, to get him out of the way.
 
I have known Frederick County, Maryland Sheriff Chuck Jenkins for over a dozen years. Since he was first elected in 2006, he has been “the people’s sheriff,” standing up for the citizens of Frederick County against liberal politicians at the state and federal level.
 
He has stood for their gun rights, and their right to a secure place to live. He has fought hard against illegal immigration, and for many years was the only sheriff in Maryland to work cooperatively with Immigration and Customs Enforcement in a program known as 287g, which authorizes the feds to remove and deport noncitizens jailed in Frederick County for serious crimes.
 
In short, Sheriff Jenkins has protected and defended We the People from the over-reaching federal government. And that’s why they want him out of the way.

Sheriff Jenkins has gone to our southern border and spoken out about the chaos reigning there under Obama and again under Biden.
 
He was a strong supporter of President Trump and was endorsed by President Trump in his re-election campaigns.
 
So no wonder a left-wing federal prosecutor, appointed by Biden, should target him with a pathetic “check the box” indictment on allegations he submitted false weapons’ import forms to the ATF.
 
If you live in the Washington, DC metropolitan area, go to the Baltimore federal courthouse tomorrow, Wednesday, at 2 PM, when Sheriff Jenkins will be arraigned.

Here is a link to this sham indictment. I’ve put links to some of the news coverage below.

But NONE of the news coverage tells you the real import of this phony prosecution of the People’s Sheriff.
 
When I learned of this today it just blew me away with a sense of déjà vu. I had been expecting exactly this type of thing to happen since the Biden regime took control of our government. To disguise their unpopularity and illegitimacy, they need to render the people without defense. They need to take our guns, and Sheriff Jenkins stood in their way.
 
Once they take our guns, they can take our freedom. Once they take our guns, they can take our money, replacing it with a Central Bank Digital Currency (planned for this July!!), which they can prevent you from spending on things (such as guns) they don’t like.
 
Friends, this is serious. This is the first step. If we don’t hold the line with Sheriff Jenkins, the feds will go after other Sheriffs who are standing between them and We the People.

 #ThePeopleStandWithSheriffJenkins
 
Remember what Ronald Reagan said in his now-famous speech to the RNC on Oc. 27, 1964: 
 
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”
 
Three years later, in his inauguration address as Governor of California, he added: “And those in world history who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again.”
 
Losing our freeedom is an experiment we don’t need to undertake in America. But mark my words: this phony, political prosecution is the first step. 
 
If you can, show up. If you can’t, speak up.
 
Yours in freedom,
 
Ken
