Utah Historic Termination Day – Emergency Terminated, Emergency Powers Revoked

Historic Termination Day - No More Covid Emergency

On July 4th, 1776 the “People of the united States of America” exercised their authority and modified their form of government. Britain did not recognize it as valid right away and few Americans knew the historical nature of what had happened until much later, after they learned what had been given to them and how to claim their freedom through their own choices.

Likewise, on Saturday, September 12th, 2020 the “People of Utah” ended the state of emergency and revoked the power of Utah’s government to handle emergencies until a long list of grievances are redressed.


The week before the September 12th declaration announcement, we wrote an article about “a collaborative effort by many local civic committees, activist groups, and individuals all over Utah using the power of constitutional law itself to declare an end to the state of emergency in Utah and revoke the people’s consent to be governed under emergency powers.

This collaborative effort has ratified the declaration, which has been published on the Utah Central Committee’s website. Some areas of the state have been hit hard with the declaration being posted by volunteers from the various ratifying groups.

Sharing the message and distributing the declaration. Local activists help parents become aware of their rights while simultaneously serving the declaration to school administrators.

One common practice, is creating awareness of the overall issue while passing out the declaration, such as these residents of southern Utah making sure the public sees their messages.

Recognizing the Constitution as the law of the land, means recognizing that under the people’s authority local leaders can no longer do anything under the name of any emergency power. So as some local leaders still ignorantly play with the idea that they can play god with our lives because there’s an “emergency,” the people are no longer recognizing that power in larger and larger numbers since Sep 12th, 2020.  You can choose to join those people through simply living free like you did before the pandemic nonsense started, regardless of the actions of pretended authority.


As this is not historically a common situation, a short explanation may be helpful to our readers.

Normally a law passed by the legislature is enforced by the applicable department of the executive branch. In this traditional scenario, the assumption is that the legislature itself did not break the law (the state constitution) when it wrote the law in question and, therefore, the executive branch will properly execute the law as it makes sense.

What happened in the case of the September 12th declaration, is The People of Utah declared a lawful modification of government power in the state. This modification of government power did not come as a law passed by the legislature, but instead through The People of Utah’s authority to modify their government and revoke consent to be governed. This authority has been reserved and protected by the state constitution (Utah Constitution Article 1 Section 2).

The state constitution is higher than the legislature in its authority, and the authors of the state constitution, the people, are even higher. This makes The People of Utah, as the source of the constitution, the final enforcement authority of constitutional law. As the September 12th declaration stated, The People have always retained the right to revoke their consent to be governed. The People have the authority to enforce on the government the fact that they do not have any emergency powers of any kind.

Therefore, it is up to The People to enforce this through the constitutional principle of nullification. This is the legal and constitutional check-and-balance that can be understood to also mean civil disobedience to criminal acts from government. The 10th amendment to the US Constitution is the most famous place where the right of nullification is enumerated and protected.

Churches, businesses, schools and individuals are fully within their constitutional rights to ignore all emergency actions of any level of government in the state of Utah at this time.


Form your own small local groups to join with others in defending your rights against illegal actions by others, with the knowledge that any actions claiming emergency authority are not lawful.
If you don’t know where to start with that we recommend existing groups that help people network and provide resources such as the Utah Central Committee.

Download and print the declaration and spread copies around your own community.

Download and print the public notice that announces the declaration and post it in public locations so more of the public is made aware and can also begin choosing to live free as they learn what this means.

  1. Sorry I’m not very smart or maybe I’m just too tired but I saw the flyers on campus at BYU. Is this basically saying we don’t have to masks and proof as to why that is so? Feedback would be great as I want to be informed and be able to tell people why I won’t bend to the mob, as that is where I stand and to know y’all are fighting for that is something I can get behind! #MAGA

    1. Yes, you can confidently not wear masks under the law. The constitution is 100% clear. Anyone forcing you to do anything, in the name of emergency government authority in the state of Utah, is breaking the law. You can share the declaration itself to educate others, as it is a lawful document under the constitution. Feel free to reach out to us on the contact page if you have more questions.

  2. Everyone involved with this scam is in violation of US Code Title 18 sections 1038 and 1040, which deals with emergency declaration. The penalties can be severe, up to life imprisonment. All and everyone claiming to have some authority in lock downs and forcing Face Masks need to be tried and convicted.

  3. THIS IS WHY IN EVERY STATE, THE PEOPLE MUST DECLARE AND DECREE THEIR RIGHTS. The public schools have taught wrongly for years that there are 3 branches of government. This is in ERROR. The PEOPLE are the first and foremost branch of government, making 4 Branches of Government. The people are the ones that revoke legislation, not courts of unelected sitters. We the People…… Teach 4 branches of government under the Constitution everywhere!

  4. I have refused to close my business from the beginning and plan to have a social gathering soon as well that is giving me some inner conflict…since I’m a single mom who is solely responsible to provide for those relying on me. First, I know that if all those who opposed these mandates simply didn’t comply, we could make a change. But the pressure is almost too great if we’re going to be picked off one by one. So who really has my back if it all goes south for me?

    Second, I need help sorting through the truth of what power the orders carry and my potential consequences. These are some of the comments people have made in response to our king, trying to assess whether or not we can actually be punished if we don’t bow:

    “He can mandate, and issue orders with the force of law. So can public health officials. It’s done pursuant to laws previously passed by the Legislature.”

    “…the fine is existing law that applies to the violation of any provision of a public health order. And the new public health order contains all the same verbiage from the Governor’s executive order, thus making it a 10k fine to not wear masks, distance 6 feet, etc.”


  5. I am as common a man as exists, but in my heart and soul I must have freedom and liberty, and I will defend our constitution to the death if necessary. I live in CA and have not read the CA Constitution. Are they all similar? Is emergency powers a contrived power by power hungry politicians? Our governor has gone completely haywire, off the charts stealing away our rights and liberties. We even collected citizen signatures to put him up for a recall vote, and he and his deep state cronies in the counties would not release the signatures so we could throw him out. Talk about abuse of power. So, what would be the first step for us in CA, to legally override the governments use of emergency powers? There are millions of us that would like to do so. Thank you.

  6. I have a question, I’m wanting to send my children back to school but refuse to have them wear a mask due to health concerns. Its not healthy for anyone to wear a mask for hours at a time. What are my rights to get them back in school with out having to wear a mask with our a Dr’s order? Can I just print out the exempt cards i seen? Please help..Thank you
