Michigan Senate Votes 37-0 to Defeat NDAA

Activist Post

In a vote of 37-0 (1 absent), the Michigan Senate joined the growing list of of states and municipalities throughout America in passing their version of the Liberty Preservation Act, released by the Tenth Amendment Center. Senate Bill 94 (SB94) now proceeds to the Michigan State House. State Senator Rick Jones, the bill's sponsor, and grassroots activists forged the bipartisan alliance against the federal law which applies the law of war and indefinite detention to anyone on U.S. soil.

After the bill's passage in the Senate, PANDA Michigan's Dennis Marburger vowed relentless opposition to all federal legislation which subverts the U.S. Constitution, saying:
The very active and knowledgeable group of Michiganians fighting this egregious Federal overreach will not rest until there is real, tangible and viable state resistance to D.C.'s attempts to deny our rights and threaten our safety – whatever unconstitutional legislation, edict or judicial fiat our government employees use as an excuse.
The unlawful mandates of the NDAA are sections 1021 and 1022 which allow the arrest, detention and/or transport to foreign prisons of anyone the federal government “suspects” is a terrorist.

Those so imprisoned can be denied trial, access to an attorney, and the ability to even advise someone they have been detained.

To enforce NDAA, the federal government will need assistance from the states. If signed into law, SB94 will announce the strong determination of the people of Michigan that the 2012 NDAA is unconstitutional.

SB94 is a companion bill of HB4138, sponsored by State Representative Tom McMillin. A similar bill passed the Michigan House last fall on a vote of 107-0.

If you are in Michigan, or know someone in Michigan, it is time to fight for your rights.

There is a reason the Continuity of Government plan is secret.

There is a reason the president of the United States now has the ability to declare a state of emergency for any reason he deems to be appropriate and install martial law, suspending the Constitution.

There is a reason.

State laws are no barrier to the power of the president and the people who control him.

All these actions at the state level are just more theater to appease the people until the president gives the word. And then it's all over.

Any stats on how many other states are doing this? Why aren't they ALL doing it. Same goes for unconstitutional federal gun laws. Sheeple!

I must admit I am pleasantly surprised that Michigan and Montana have seemingly been united with their people so far on this matter.

I am curious as well if there is any source for "concentrated" info on other states fighting against the NDAA at this time?

I didn't see anything specific on that stuff on the P.A.N.D.A site, maybe I just overlooked it.

Regardless here's to hoping more states follow these examples and their people's rights not to be treated like potential terrorists for disagreeing with "Big Brother".
