“But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned;

if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity;

but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand."

Ezekiel 33:6

"A righteous man falling down before the wicked is as a troubled fountain, and a corrupt spring."

Proverbs 25:26

How Local and State Governments Can Fight NDAA

Unbelievable! Congress has just purported to authorize the Office of the President of the United States -- upon his determination an American Citizen within the United States "substantially supported" Al-Qaeda, the Taliban or "associated forces" -- to use the military to indefinitely detain that American Citizen, without charge or access to counsel, until the end of hostilities against terrorism. The Citizen may be subject to military tribunal, transferred to a foreign country, or kept locked up until the long-war against terrorism ends. So much for the Constitutional rights to Habeas Corpus, Counsel, and trial by one's peers. Due process anyone? How about the right to spend July on Narragansett Bay instead of Guantanamo Bay?
We're not kidding. Check out section 1021 of the NDAA. It's 2011 P.L. 112-81, and will shock your conscience. Need further proof? Check out these links: United States Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham state that that American Citizens can be indefinitely detained; United States Senator Carl Levin states that the Obama Administration demanded that the provisions (section 1021 was previously codified as section 1031 prior to final passage) apply to American Citizens.
RILC's response? We drafted nullification legislation that can double as a draft state-wide Act as well as a local ordinance --in any state, county or municipality in the Country -- that denounces Section 1021 of the NDAA and prevents local officials from cooperating with military investigations and detainments of United States Citizens and legal resident aliens. The Act goes one step further and attempts to outlaw military investigations and detentions of citizens and resident legal aliens within those states, counties or municipalities. Did we mention this legislation can be used as a template in jurisdictions ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY?
Our legislation:
• Demonstrates how 2012 NDAA section 1021 purport to authorize military investigations, indefinite detention, military tribunals and transfer to foreign jurisdictions of U.S. citizens and legal aliens within the United States.
• Specifies the Constitutional provisions violated by such actions.
• Serves as a State or Local resolution condemning the section 1021 of the 2012 NDAA.
• Outlaws local officials from assisting military investigations and/or detentions of United States citizens and legal aliens.
• Attempts to outlaw the military, and those working in concert with the military, from conducting investigations and detainments of U.S. citizens.
