J C Somma commented on Contact 2020-07-19 18:27:49 -0700After another tyrannical order from the governor and county “authority” to wear masks I entered a outdoor gear and camping supply store to shop and encountered a young man posted not far inside the store at a station with hand sanitizer. He told me I needed to wear a mask after which I flashed my CFFS First Amendment placard hanging from the lanyard around my neck and said, “That would be injurious to my health.” He sat back on his stool and let me pass into the store where I traversed to the back of this large store. After checking for several items but not finding what I wanted I returned to the front of the store and left without anyone having made any further comment about my not wearing a mask.

LaVoy: Dead Man Talking
Exclusively for members of Citizens for Free Speech
Thursday, November 8th, 7:00PM Eastern
Members of Citizens for Free Speech are invited to an exclusive Internet presentation that reveals the true story behind the life and times of Arizona rancher LaVoy Finicum, who was tragically shot down by the FBI and Oregon State troopers on January 26, 2016 in eastern Oregon.
This one hour documentary, LaVoy: Dead Man Talking, reveals what happens when the First Amendment is ignored while aggressive Federal overreach presses personal rights to the extreme.
The First Amendment is a package of rights, including freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom to peaceful assembly, and freedom to redress the government of grievances against them. Each one of these were methodically violated over a long period of time, leading up to the senseless and unwarranted shooting of this courageous Arizona rancher, who only wanted to enjoy the rights to his lawfully-obtained personal property without excessive government intrusion.
America should take this as a wake-up call as to why the First Amendment was placed first: it is the first protection against all forms of tyranny. The second President of the United States, John Adams, stated,
“The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence.” (1787)
Trailer - LaVoy: Dead Man Talking
LaVoy Finicum was, and still is, a victim of "label-lynching" that is so prevalent in today's twisted and dysfunctional political environment. Just to set the record straight, he was never a member of any militia nor a member of the so-called "sovereign citizen" movement. Most certainly, he was not a "domestic terrorist" as was falsely claimed by the FBI.
This documentary, free for CFFS members, will be shown live in a webinar format, requiring a computer, laptop or tablet device. You will hear from LaVoy Finicum's widow, Jeannette Finicum, as well as from the film's producer, Mark Herr, Executive Director of Center for Self Governance.
This is a must-see documentary for everyone who loves and respects the U.S. Constitution, and in particular, the First Amendment.
