ALbany, NY Common Council unanimously passed Resolution 80.92.13, becoming the first city in America to prohibit indefinite military detention without charge or trial, specifically under the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act, to declare it is not a “battlefield” and resolve that its citizens and residents are not subject to “detention under the law of war.”
Unlike in California, Alaska, and other states that purported to block the NDAA, but only require the state to stand down and allow Federal officials to implement it nonetheless, Resolution 80.92.13 recognizes the application of the Law of War to residents/citizens of Albany to be unConstitutional.
Now that they know this is unConstitutional, every peace officer, elected official, or other person who takes an Oath to the U.S. Constitution in the City of Albany is required to interpose against those attempting to implement military detention or the “law of war” in Albany.
Under the Constitution, instead of mere noncompliance, this resolution requires interposition to protect the rights of the people and stop the Federal government from implementing military detention in the city. Period.
This is the strongest piece of legislation in the United States to date to prohibit the indefinite military detention power in the United States.
I'm wondering how long before their "Shelter in place" order becomes permanent. We are being trained to not only give up our means to defend ourselves, but to simply wait until the police come to fix it. While hoping they don't shoot US instead. And that they actually catch the criminal, let alone stop him from doing bad things. And once he's caught, IF he's caught, that they don't let him plea out of the deal. And that once he's plead out, that he doesn't decide to come back and finish the job. And that it doesn't just start the cycle all over again....
Anton explains the legislation, his past experiences growing up in the former Soviet Union, the parallels of our current situation versus the former USSR, why he decided to get involved, and why he's taking a stand against this secretive and controversial bill.
