Support this Patriot’s fight against tyranny:
(Nick Koumalatsos) It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that we are temporally closing to the public until further notice. I have very strong convictions about our rights in America and have no problem fighting for them. I served 12 years in our Armed Forces where I took an oath to defend our constitution. What I cannot sit back, and watch is the harassment of our members by the Holly Ridge Police Department. This is simply inexcusable and on their behalf, I apologize for any negative interaction or empty threats you may have received. Due to unfortunate events Police Chief Keith Whaley has been released of duty and Captain Richards is acting Police Chief of Holly Ridge. Captain Richards has unlawfully trespassed in our gym with an old keycard which was to be returned upon termination of membership prior to 2018. He entered the gym and threatened to ticket all members that were inside. He also took videos and photos from the windows. I want to inform you of this so that you are completely aware of the situation. I have personally spoken to the Mayor Jeff Wenzel sad he stands by Governor Roy Coopers orders. “Regardless of how many rights it violates.”
Currently ABC Stores, Tobacco Shops, and many other big businesses are allowed to operate under the essential clause however, small businesses are deemed non-essential. This is a clear picture of favoritism to businesses that have high sales tax rate for the state of North Carolina. Due to the way memberships and personal training are taxed it is not a large revenue generation machine for the state. Federal judges ruled last week that Governor Roy Cooper’s orders violated the Constitutional First Amendment Rights for freedom of religion and to worship freely. Churches are meeting all over North Carolina at this time. Whether you agree with this order or not is not the point. The point is all Americans have the rights afforded to them by our Constitution. If you choose not to exercise those rights, that is up to all of us on an individual basis but those that choose to do so, can without prejudice from our Government.
