Virginia’s Anti-NDAA Bill Seeks to Nullify un-Constitutional Federal Law

Virginia’s Anti-NDAA Bill Seeks to Turn Tables on Feds

New legislation that has been introduced to the Virginia assembly would seek to advance a nullification of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act‘s section that claims the federal government can illegally and unconstitutionally kidnap American citizens on US soil and hold them indefinitely without a trial.Understand that the NDAA was signed into law on New Year’s Eve 2011 by Barack Hussein Obama and, for the most part, the mainstream media has yet to actually report on it.

However, that doesn’t mean that Americans are unaware of what the federal government is attempting to do. As a result several states, as well as local municipalities, have sought to put forth resolutions to nullify the unconstitutional legislation.

Virginia was the first state to pass legislation to address the NDAA’s unconstitutional indefinite detention provision.

Delegate Benjamin L. Cline (R – House District 24) sponsored HB2144, which will go beyond the previous legislation. While the first law was passed that simply disallowed any state employees or law enforcement to be involved and provide aid to the federal government in enforcing the criminal legislation, this second round of legislation would require two things from federal agents who want to detain Virginia citizens.

According to the bill the first requirement would be, “”the U.S. Secretary of Defense shall provide notification within 24 hours of the detention to both the Secretary of Public Safety and the chief law-enforcement officer of the locality in which the citizen is detained…”

The second requirement would be, “the U.S. Secretary of Defense or his designee shall seek authorization from the chief law-enforcement officer of the locality in which the citizen is detained prior to removal of the citizen from the locality.”

Theoretically this would provide two layers of protection, something that already exists, to guard the citizens of Virginia against the tyranny that is being imposed upon the American people.

Kelli Sladick at the Tenth Amendment Center comments:

A series of events is triggered upon detainment of any person in the state of Virginia by the DoD. The state of Virginia will gather and publish Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs). These are essentially partnerships with state funds attached to them. These agreements are not necessarily legally binding, but usually offer some privacy between state, private enterprises (contractors), and federal partnerships. Much of this kind of information usually remains hidden from the general public.

“The Secretary of Finance shall obtain from each cabinet secretary and submit to the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees, to be published in some manner on an annual basis, a list and description of all memoranda of understanding (MOUs) entered into between the Commonwealth and agencies of the federal government.”

This provision in and of itself provides a great service to the people of Virginia, allowing them to see exactly what types of agreements exist between the state and various federal agencies.

The legislation then adds a final provision that would go into effect if the federal government detains somebody under Section 1021 and 1022 of NDAA 2012 and fails to provide the requirements in sections one and two.

“…funds appropriated for implementation or continuation of such MOUs shall be contingent upon authorization by an act of the General Assembly in a subsequent year. The Governor may also order termination of any MOU at any time for noncompliance with this section.
