California effectively nullifies NDAA

Finally! The California legislature and Jerry Brown did something I fully endorse!

Assembly Bill 351, commonly called the California Liberty Preservation Act, has been signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown making it statewide policy to refuse compliance with federal attempts to enforce “indefinite detention” made famous by the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA). What began as a marginal issue with little legislative support has unified Californians of all persuasions and brought attention to the proper role the people and their states play in a constitutional republic.

This language of AB351 goes far beyond what has been considered in most other states, which focus solely on indefinite detention powers under the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), and nothing else.  [Repubican Assemblyman Tim] Donnelly’s legislation broadened the scope by recognizing that indefinite detention should not be complied with no matter what federal law is used to justify it.  Donnelly confirmed this broad scope, “AB351 will prevent California from implementing indefinite detention for any reason.”

On a side note, as someone who started a blog to share my concerns about the state of our economy, foreign affairs and civil liberties, there has been far more good news to discuss than I could have ever anticipated. We averted military action in Syria, the US is talking to Iran, the government is currently closed, and now California is sticking its tongue at the US for NDAA.

What’s next? The implementation of gold-backed money???
