Martial Law USA A Place to Study America's Imminent Societal Collapse

Opposition to the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 & How You Can Help

The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 is likely the most controversial legislation to hit the books since the Patriot Act of 2001. It potentially allows the US military to detain American citizens on mere suspicion of associating with terrorist forces. They may also be shipped to foreign prisons if the government wishes, and all without ever being charged with a crime, speaking to a lawyer, or seeing their families. Legislation like this is the harbinger of martial law in the USA. But many citizens' groups, state governments, and even federal officials are taking action against this tyranny.

Virginia led the fight against National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 with House Bill 1160, which absolved all Virginia law enforcement officials of any responsibility to aid US armed forces "in the conduct of the investigation, prosecution, or detention of a United States citizen in violation of the United States Constitution, Constitution of Virginia, or any Virginia law or regulation." According to Tenth Amendment Center executive director Michael Boldin, "In the 1850s, northern states felt that Habeas Corpus was so important that they passed laws rejecting the federal fugitive slave act. The bill passed in Massachusetts was so effective, not one single runaway slave was returned south from that state. Today, Virginia joins in this great American tradition.

When the federal government passes unconstitutional so-called laws so destructive to liberty – it’s the people and the states that will stand up and say, ‘NO!’ May the other states now follow the lead taken today by Virginia.” Across the country in Utah, the House of Representatives is considering a bill which would formally request that the federal government remove or clarify the language in the NDAA 2012 that allows the indefinite detention of US citizens on suspicion of terrorist activity. Meanwhile, the Washington State House of Representatives is mulling over HB 2759, also known as the Washington State Preservation of Liberty Act. This bill would prohibit “any state employee, member of the Washington National Guard or any agent of a corporation doing business with the state” from cooperating with federal or military authorities should they attempt to illegally detain a citizen of the State of Washington.

Congressman Ron Paul, who hopes to win the Republican Party nomination this year, has been another vocal critic of National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012. See what he had to say in this video:

So what can average Americans like us do to fight the indefinite detention of our countrymen being legalized by the NDAA 2012? Spread the word! A shocking number of people have either never even heard of NDAA 2012, or write it off as some kind of nutcase tinfoil hat conspiracy. Explain to them that it has been signed into law and how it could affect their Constitutional rights. Getting active on social network is a great way to get the word out.

Like and Follow pages like Void NDAA on Facebook. Write, call, and email your Senators and Representatives and demand that they sponsor the Smith-Amash Amendment which would require that US citizens accused of terrorist activities can only be tried in a civilian court. It will also prohibit terror suspects apprehended on US soil from being transferred into military custody. This country is a democracy: average Americans CAN and DO make a difference if they stand up against laws that they don't like, as we saw with the SOPA debacle. Already, there is word that NDAA 2013 contains provisions for "military operations in cyberspace." Get active and show the federal government that the American people will not stand for tyranny like this!

  1. Americans Lose Constitution & Country To New Fascist Legislation

    Almost every week there are published news accounts of Government and Police Corruption. Perjury by police agencies and their informants may now pose the greatest threat to Americans’ Freedom due to Congress in December 2011 passing (NDAA) The National Defense Authorization ACT of 2012. Under (NDAA) Government does not need probable cause or corroborating evidence to Indefinitely Detain Americans without charges, no right to an attorney, trial or Habeas Corpus. Police/Government Agencies that falsify reports and give perjured testimony can now cause innocent Americans to be swept off the street and indefinitely incarcerated for being a suspected Terrorist, supporting Terrorism or being a Belligerent. No violent act is required to be charged with involvement in terrorism under (NDAA).

    Some observers believe NDAA included the vague term “Belligerent” in the manner it did, so U.S. Government would have authority granted by Congress to Indefinitely Detain large numbers of Americans not involved in terrorism. Under NDAA, U.S. Government can deem anyone a “Belligerent” for indefinite detention. The term “Belligerent” is so expansive and vague an American Citizen could be labeled a “Belligerent” for exercising First Amendment Rights—speaking out for or against any issue; protesting a U.S. Government Policy, agency or coalition Partner. It is foreseeable U.S. Government might threaten Americans with Indefinite Detention that refuse to act as informants. The East German Stasi Police used this tactic to create an army of neighborhood and other informants.

    The passed (Defense Authorization Act of 2012) appears more threatening to Americans than (Hitler’s FASCIST 1933 Discriminatory LAWS) that suspended provisions in the Reich Constitution that Protected German Citizens’ Civil Liberties? For example—Hitler’s 1933 DISCRIMINATORY LAWS (stated fines and time limits) that German Citizens could be incarcerated for e.g., Serious Disturbance of the Peace, Provoking Public Unrest, Rioting; Acts that threatened National Security. In contrast Senators John McCain and Carl Levin’s passed National Defense Authorization Act of 2012—mandates holding Americans’ (Indefinitely) in Military Custody for being a mere “Belligerent.”

    Under the passed National Defense Authorization, could Americans (Retroactively) be subject to Indefinite U.S. Military or Prison Detention without charges or right to an attorney or trial? Consider most American activists don’t know what other activists and groups they networked or associated did in the past—perhaps illegal. Both the National Authorization Act of 2012 and USA Patriot Act are expansive and vague—what constitutes (1) supporting or aiding terrorists, (2) a terrorist act; (3) when someone is a “Combatant” or (4) “a Belligerent.” For example, Americans advocating, attending or supporting a meeting or protest demonstration against a U.S. Government Agency; Policy or U.S. Military Action—could be charged with (1) (2) (3) and (4) under NDAA and the Patriot Act.

    History Repeats: When other countries passed Police State Laws like The Defense Authorization Act of 2012, Citizens increasingly abstained from politically speaking out; visiting activist websites or writing comments that might be deemed inappropriate by their Police State Government, e.g. cause someone to lose their job; be investigated; disappeared and or detained in Police/Military Custody. Some writers might be dead-meat under NDAA. It appears that “Americans” who write on the Internet or verbally express an opinion against any entity of U.S. Government or its coalition partners—may under the Patriot Act or The Defense Authorization Act—be deemed by U.S. Government (someone likely to engage in, support or provoke violent acts or threaten National Security—to order an American writer’s indefinite military or prison detention.

    Is NDAA Retroactive? Can U.S. Government invoke provisions of NDAA or the Patriot Act to assert a U.S. Citizen’s past or current writings (protected by the 1st Amendment) supported or aided terrorists, provoked combatants or belligerents as a premise to order an author’s Indefinite Detention? The Defense Authorization Act of 2012 did more than Chill Free Speech—it may FREEZE IT! Consider: In mid-January 2012 Homeland Security announced the National Operations Center (NOC) received permission from Washington to monitor journalists and retain data on users of social media and online networking platforms. Could Homeland Security Spying, tracking Americans result in Citizens abstaining from visiting and posting comments on websites? It is not clear why Homeland Security wants to track users of social media and online networking platforms.

    It should be expected that indefinitely detained U.S. Citizens not involved in terrorism or hostile activities, not given Miranda Warnings when interrogated or allowed legal counsel; will also be prosecuted for non-terrorist (ordinary crimes) because of their (alleged admissions) while held in Indefinite Detention.

  2. I do solemnely swear to uhlpod the constitution of the United States of America against all enemies foreign and domestic and bear true faith and allegiance to the same so help me God. I will obey the LAWFULL orders which may be issued from time to time from the President of the United States. Key words being lawfull, the constitution is the supreme law of the land, any action taken by any official in government that goes against their oaths to uhlpod the constitution is a crime. Of course most people have no idea of what the constitution even is anymore. Nor do they have any solid communication or grammer skills to be able to learn about it. I have children in schools where thay are not learning cursive, rather they are being encouraged to take notes in texting language. I live in Oklahoma so for now it is still politically correct to say the pledge of allegiance anyhow.
