In support of liberty, Virginia Senate Passes "NDAA Nullification" Bill 1160

Today, the Virginia Senate took a firm stand in support of liberty, the Constitution for the United States, and the Constitution of Virginia by voting in favor of House Bill 1160 (HB1160), the “NDAA Nullification Act.”

The final vote was 39-1.

After a motion to recommit (delay until next year) went down to the wire before being rejected yesterday (report here), groups across the political spectrum activated in support of the legislation, which codifies in law that no agency of the Commonwealth of Virginia – including defense forces and national guard troops, will comply with or assist the federal government in any way under it’s newly claimed powers to arrest and detain without due process.


The bill’s primary sponsor, Delegate Bob Marshall, had this to say in support:

“During World War II, the federal government incarcerated tens of thousands of loyal Japanese Americans in the name of national security. By this bill, Virginia declares that it will not participate in similar modern-day efforts.

Even President Obama had questions about the bill, when he promised the American people that he would not use the unrestrained powers it granted him — but why should we trust any President with such powers?


There are moments in our history when our liberties hang in the balance. This is one of those moments. I urge the Senate…to lead the way in the nation to ensure that Virginia will not cooperate when the Federal Government strays off the reservation with laws that take away the civil liberties of our citizens.”

Obamas is a liar , we already know that !  So why should WE the people trust any executive with such power ? Every single elected official in office here in Hawaii has entirerly sold out and did and said nothing to help us against this kind of tyranny . We have such along way to go ...

Not a bad START. But this law just makes the Senators LOOK good without really doing much. NDAA doesn't ASK state law enforcement/guardsmen to participate. That's the point. The Prez wants to send the ARMY in.

So Virginia cops and guardsmen won't help. Bid deal. What will they do? Stand around and watch?

How about an amendment that clarifies that kidnapping is against the law in Virginia, and anyone who tries it -- fed, soldier or otherwise --- WILL be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. 

But that would require politicians with some cojones and a REAL dedication to the Constitution.

Liberty & Justice,
