Default Landslide Victory The Strongest Anti-NDAA Bill In America Passes Out of the Idaho Hou

In A Landslide Victory The Strongest Anti-NDAA Bill In America Passes Out of the Idaho House of Representatives
In a Landslide Victory, the Restoring Constitutional Governance Act, H473 passed out of the Idaho House of Representatives on Monday, 2/26/2018 with a final vote of 63-4-3. This legislation is the strongest in the nation as it explicitly prohibits the laws of war from being used on non-soldiers in Idaho, and Idaho citizens anywhere, and will punish any person, including Federal or international agents, who attempts to utilize those powers.


A Quick Refresher On The NDAA which violates over half of the bill of rights, including but not limited to:

•Article I, Section 9 suspension clause
•Article III, Section 2 trial by jury
•Article III, Section 3 treason
•1st amendment free speech
•4th amendment unlawful search and seizure
•5th amendment due process
•6th amendment speedy trial
•8th amendment cruel and unusual punishment

Introduced by State Rep. Bryan Zollinger, H473 would ban the state of Idaho from enforcing sections 1021 and 1022 of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act. These sections purport to give authority to the federal government to indefinitely detain anyone, anywhere – without charge or trial. This bill also covers indefinite detention without due process authorized under “any similar law or authority enacted or claimed by Congress or the President.”
...
....
Federal Judge Katherine Forrest said: “The Government was unable to define precisely what ‘direct’ or ‘substantial’ ‘support’ means… Thus, an individual could run the risk of substantially supporting or directly supporting an associated force without even being aware that he or she was doing so.” Further, she said that: “This measure has a chilling impact on First Amendment rights.”

Charles C. Krulak and Joseph P. Hoar, four-star generals, in a New York Times editorial said: “Due process would be a thing of the past.”

Anthony D. Romero, ACLU’s Executive director said: “The statute is particularly dangerous because it has no temporal or geographic limitations, and can be used by this and future presidents to militarily detain people captured far from any battlefield.”

Rush Limbaugh said: “This is the kind of stuff that exists in third world banana republics.”

Kenneth Roth, Executive Director, Human Rights Watch said: “By signing this defense spending bill, President Obama will go down in history as the president who enshrined indefinite detention without trial in US law.”
H473 states:

“It is the Determination of the Idaho legislature that Idaho is not a battlefield subject to the laws of war and that neither congress nor the president of the United States can constitutionally apply the laws of war to any person in Idaho or citizen of Idaho…”

“…it is unlawful, for any person to do any one (1) of the following:

Arrest or capture any person in Idaho or any citizen of Idaho under the law of war;
Actually subject a person in Idaho to disposition under the law of war; or
Use deadly force under the laws of war against any person in Idaho, or intentionally subject any citizen of Idaho for targeted killing or murder…”

“Any person who commits a violation of this section shall be prosecuted under the Idaho criminal code relating to the substantive law for which the violation pertains including, but not limited to, assault, battery, kidnapping or murder.”

If this bill passes into law, Idaho would become the sixth state to take steps to stop indefinite detention, joining Alaska, California, Michigan, New Hampshire, and Virginia. Several local governments have passed similar legislation in the state of Idaho as well including Emmett, Middleton, Gem County, and Bonner County.

All of these states are following James Madison’s blueprint for stopping federal overreach. In Federalist 46, he argued that a “refusal to comply with officers of the Union” along with other actions at the state and local level would create a situation where the federal government would have an almost impossible time enforcing their acts. When several states join together and do the same, Madison said it would “present obstructions which the federal government would hardly be willing to encounter.”

Another aspect of the NDAA since 2012 is that it repealed the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948, which was amended in 1985 specifically to prohibit U.S. organizations from using information "to influence public opinion in the United States."

Basically it made it illegal for the gov't use Propaganda on U.S. citizens, like VOA and the many other US versions of RT.

Trump DID NOT Reinstate the Smith-Mundt Act that Obama Repealed with NDAA. So Once Again we have "LEGALIZED" State Sponsored Propaganda.
