NDAA Nullification Becomes Law in Virginia, Effective July 1st

Dr Paul has been talking about NDAA since Obama signed it on New Year's Eve. He has much greater influence than the establishment will admit.

Several states have formally objected to NDAA provisions, but Virginia becomes the first state to pass legislation refusing to comply:

On Wednesday, the Virginia legislature overwhelmingly passed a law that forbids state agencies from cooperating with any federal attempt to exercise the indefinite detention without due process provisions written into sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act.

Without his book and lectures, I doubt anyone would have come up with this idea.

Lol is Disney sending us

Lol is Disney sending us hints? The movie John Carter had an interesting joke where the aliens though his name was Virginia because he said "I'm John Carter from Virginia." Lol Just an interesting thought. Also, John Carter is much better than the MSM would like you to believe.

Virginia: First State to Defy the Federal Gov.

First State to Defy the Federal Government, Virginia Nullifies NDAA
Posted by Kristina Bruce ⋅ April 19, 2012

As reported in the previous article Who are the 399 and Why Should You Care?, the Virginia legislature in February had passed a National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) nullification bill in the initial version of HB1160 by both the House and Senate.

Awesome!

Now I want to move to Virginia.

Good...

...but I wish it said, "forbids state agencies from cooperating with any federal attempt to exercise the indefinite detention without due process provisions written into sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act" and requires said agencies to actively resist any such attempts.

My prediction: They'll fold in court (or before that)

Anyone remember Texas and the TSA? Or how about Arizona and SB70? Or Montana and firearms freedom act?

Threat of a date with the Supremes, its all over.

Hey man don't bum me out.

Hey man don't bum me out. Stop being such a realist ;-) In all honesty I hope you're wrong lol.

One down...

forty nine to go! Let's get to work!

YIPPEE!- a precedent for the President to take note of.

All states need to take due advanatage of their nullification powers in a great host of unconstitutional acts by the president and the Federal Legislature. So the President had "said" he will not use this detention power against ordinary american citizens. Undefined language and oral promises cannot be trusted. No state should wait for The president or The Federal houses to correct their boo boos. This correction should have been immediately acted on by those guys if they expected to have any credability.

With all due respect, I will no longer be a voting prostitute for Constitution rejecting harlots.

Am I missing something? Does Obama really need any State or

local agency to help carry out NDAA? I think he's built a pretty good size army with the DHS, ICE, FBI, DEA, etc.* What does he care if they don't participate? When Beau Biden stripped the sheriffs/deputies in Delaware of their ability to make arrests, who's to say that won't become a national effort? Sort me out if I'm wrong!

The politics are important here...

Virginia has a Republican governor and a GOP-controlled state legislature. This action will put pressure on the Republicans in Congress to repeal the detention provisions.

Thank you for this

Thank you for this information I'm surprised Bob Marshall has not updated his site with this good news.
I haven't read the bill yet but I wonder what the amendment they talk about was?

Do you think...

...anyone will care or recognize this important legislation?

The whole country must rise up to defeat this globalist empire take-over and destruction of America. While Americans fight and bicker amongst themselves, the enemies within laugh and watch the ship slowly sink, as they count the profits.

The governor amended it and his ammendements were passed by the legislature, so his signature is not required. Read the post.
