Most Ohio cities have been operating under emergency declaration for many years.
This can be observed by reviewing the local ordinances. It has been done to circumvent Constitutional protections, other state law, or as they say, to avoid practical and legal entanglements.
Many have adopted the International Property Maintenance Codes, which can be used to bankrupt anyone, imprison them permanently, and to seize their property.
Here’s just one community as an example:
Click on “ADOPTING ORDINANCE NO. 92-59”
And you’ll see:
“AUTHORIZING THE APPROVAL, ADOPTION AND ENACTMENT OF THE CODIFIED ORDINANCES OF BLUE ASH, OHIO, 1992; REPEALING ORDINANCES IN CONFLICT THEREWITH; PUBLISHING THE ENACTMENT OF NEW MATTER; AND DECLARING AN EMERGENCY.”
And below that:
“SECTION IV. This Ordinance is hereby declared to be an emergency ordinance necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, property, health, safety and welfare of the City and for the further reason that there exists an imperative necessity for the earliest publication and distribution of the Codified Ordinances to the officials and citizens of the City, so as to facilitate administration and daily operation and avoid practical and legal entanglements. Therefore, this Ordinance shall be in full force and effect from and after its passage.”
Here’s another city’s rule that shows the 4th Amendment is not in effect:
“The Building Superintendent shall enforce the provisions of this Code, and he or his duly authorized representative may enter any building, structure or premises in the City to perform any duty imposed upon him by this Code, and for such purposes, shall have the powers of a police officer of the City.”
Here’s a city’s penalty description:
“No person shall locate, erect, construct, reconstruct, enlarge, change, maintain or use any building, equipment, or land in violation of any of the provisions of this Code, or any amendment or supplement thereto adopted by Council. Any person, firm or corporation violating any of the provisions of this Code or any amendment or supplement thereto, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor of the third degree and, upon conviction thereof, shall be fined not more than five hundred dollars ($500.00) or imprisoned not more than sixty days, or both. Each and every day during which such violation continues shall constitute a separate offense.”
We are living under tyranny, unwarranted declaration of emergency, and martial law, and we don’t even know it.
While we were distracted by presidential puppet theater, tyranny made an end run at the local level.
Isaiah 10:1-2 Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write grievousness which they have prescribed; To turn aside the needy from judgment, and to take away the right from the poor of my people, that widows may be their prey, and that they may rob the fatherless!
Luke 11:46 And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers.
Luke 11:52 Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.
