Fighting Against NDAA?

John Glaser, February 02, 2012

Raw Story:

Five Republican lawmakers from Washington state have introduced legislation that condemns the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2012 for controversial measures regarding the detainment of terrorism suspects, according to the Tenth Amendment Center.

The $662 billion defense spending bill contained a controversial section that required terrorism suspects to be detained by the military without trial, regardless of where they were captured.

HB 2759, the Washington State Preservation of Liberty Act, was introduced by Reps. Jason Overstreet, Matt Shea, Vincent Buys, Cary Condotta, and David Taylor. The bill condemns the NDAA for authorizing the United States to “indefinitely detain United States citizens and lawful resident aliens captured within the United States of America without charge until the end of hostilities.”

Not sure what introducing “legislation that condemns” another piece of legislation actually means, and it seems quite clear this will go nowhere, but at least there’s somebody doing something against NDAA. Right?

  1. Actually, the bill requires state noncompliance with the feds. Virginia is also considering a bill that does the same. And in TN, there's legislation that would require some state employees to actually confront the feds if they try to kidnap someone under the NDAA "law"

    stay tuned – lots of action coming on this beast.

  2. Opposing the NDAA is a good first step but does anyone reading this oppose FBI and police constitutional crimes? The media and civil liberties groups I have contacted have not. That story can only be found with a search for "New police weapon against homeless" and also "Historic coverup of FBI and police crimes currently taking place". More details of the coverup are available if I received an email from you at soxin8@hotmail.com Bill Anderson

  3. Interposition by the states is just about the only means of effectively combating the FedGov, because meaningful resistance requires resources.

  4. No some Dems (over 40) have already introduced a "Due process guarantee" act, that does more than just condemn. It guarantee due process basically, it really seems it does. These R's need to get behind that or forever prove themselves a bunch of phonies. Tired of BS bills by our traitorous congress. Can we tar and feather them yet?

  5. The Sheriff of Nye County, Nevada once threatened to arrest Federal BLM agents for tresspassing, or something like that. We need more guys like that in our local and state jurisdictions to stand up to bullying, Communistic Federal goons. Actually a county Sheriff has the authority to evict all Feds out of his jurisdiction, but unfortunately many local police and sheriff's departments have now been turned into militarized Federal auxiliary forces/occupying armies through Federal money and "assistance", incidents such as this will probably be rare.

  6. I would love to support this fight against the ndaa and if its really for the people then pursuing this might really help. that's how I would like to be done..
