Conservative of the Year: Jeff Christopher

Whether one agrees or disagrees with Sheriff Jeff Christopher, he has captured the attention of the public and the ire of the establishment based upon a simple proposition, following the Constitution. His cause has gotten national attention, a hearing before the State Supreme Court which was less interested in the meaning of the state constitution than protecting the racket of the abuse of power that comes by allowing a government of men not law. State Treasurer Chip Flowers has discovered the same issue as he stood up for the Constitutional imperatives associated with his office. The courts here care more about case law than constitutional law and more about custom than tradition and common law. Obviously, a government that can nullify the Constitution by simple statue to the point of eviscerating a constitutional officer of his fundamental powers and duties, has the power to do anything Read more

Sussex County’s Sheriff And Citizen Summit

On the cool breezy spring day of Saturday at DelTech's Georgetown Campus, Sussex County's Sheriff Jeff Christopher held his First "Sheriff and Citizen Summit." The meeting was attended by 335 citizens interested in what the Constitutional Sheriff has to offer the community he serves. I witnessed NO buses or large vehicles busing people in, but instead the parking lot was filled with private citizens driving themselves to this conference.

Sheriff’s Lawsuit, Opening Arguments

Sussex County's Superior Court was filled with reporters on one side of the courtroom and sheriff supporters on the other side, when court convened at 1:30 p.m. For opening statements Judge Graves allotted the State Attorneys and Sheriff Christopher's attorneys each 15 minutes and Sussex County's attorney 10 minutes. Sheriff Christopher's attorney, Christos T. Adamopoulos argued constitutional law and not so much of common law or statutory law and based his case on Article XV Section 1 of Delaware's Constitution, which gives Delaware's Sheriffs their powers as conservators of the peace. Deputy Attorney General Edward K. Black argued the states case based mostly upon common and statutory law and Sussex County's attorney David Rutt, used his ten minutes to argue the county's case on much the same basis as the state's case. Opening arguments ended with a fifteen minute rebuttal from Read more
