Texas Threatens To Lock Up Advocates Of Obama’s Unconstitutional NDAA

Obama NDAA SC Texas threatens to lock up advocates of Obama’s unconstitutional NDAA

Written by Texas representative Lyle Larson, the Texas Liberty Preservation Act says that “…Texas shall not provide material support or participate in any way with the implementation of Sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 within the legal boundaries of the state of Texas.”

Incorporated into the NDAA at the demand of Barack Obama, these sections allow the president “…to indefinitely detain, without charge, persons including United States citizens and lawful resident aliens, whether or not they are captured within the confines of the United States.”  That is, anyone Barack Obama considers a terror threat to the United States or the American public may–at his sole discretion and direction–be rounded up and incarcerated by members of the U.S. military.

The NDAA not only authorizes this exercise of police powers on American soil by the U.S. military; it allows the president to detain “until the end of hostilities” anyone he believes to have “substantially supported” al Qaeda, the Taliban, or “associated forces.”  Those subjected to this arbitrary exercise of presidential power would face an indefinite period of imprisonment with no right of habeas corpus, no right to trial, no right to present proof of innocence, and no method of appeal. It makes for an utter abrogation of constitutional protections.

But State Representative Larson will have none of it as he seeks to shield the people of Texas from a law that Republicans in the U.S. Congress could not wait to pass.  “Sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 are in direct contravention to the limits of federal power as stated in Article 1, Section 8 of the United States Constitution and are in violation of the Texas constitution,” writes Larson in his Act.

The prospective Texas law relies for its authority and legitimacy on the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. “The Tenth Amendment…provides the United States federal government authorization to exercise only those powers delegated to it in the Constitution (Article 1, Section Eight) and nothing more,” writes Larson. And the NDAA was in no way created according to “…[the] powers delegated to [congress]   in the Constitution.”

In April, Virginia passed HB 1160, making it illegal for anyone to accommodate the NDAA in that state. And as of November 19th, 16 states have refused to permit the creation of ObamaCare exchanges within their borders. With the corrupt, Marxist Obama administration in charge in Washington DC and the weak-kneed Republican Party a thoroughly undependable champion of individual liberty, it will be up to Republican-run state legislatures and non-RINO Governors to halt the progress of the imperial presidency.

The American public must make their voices heard at the state level on every important issue.

  1. I think of Obama, General Petraeus and General McCrystal and have to laugh when I think of the old satiric parable:

    Do unto others before they do unto you.

    Which one of these guys is a practionor.

  2. Damn Tex., you make real Americans proud. Keep up the good work, patriots! We'll beat these anti-American traitors yet!!!

  3. I pray some of your Texan common sense rubs of on ALL the states.

  4. I’m moving to Texas, it’s the only state left in America that’s actually proactive in taking steps to protect its citizens from this new government we are now slaves to. I would rather live free with my rights in tact, than live as a slave in the nation of the former free.

    • As we say in Texas, you may not have been born here, but if you move here, you got here as quick as you could!

    • nobodysfool says:

      Texas is a great state to be in!! You will love it.

    • Paul Goodwin says:

      They call me a texacan here in Ct. but I would move back in a heartbeat, if family issues here in New England were not more important.

    • This is a great state Adam. Hopefully, we have enough true Texans and Americans in Austin to stand up for our state and our country..or at least what's left of it. Texas can secede but, anyone who wants to come along is welcome. We can be Texoklalouisiarkannewmex. Maybe we will shorten it if everyone agrees.

  5. Tet Vet 1968 says:

    When I was working in Texas I had a great bumper sticker. "I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could". Hang in there Texas you are the shinning light for patriots.

    way to go Texas. way to go Virginia

  7. Born in Texas, moved to South Carolina, but I carry the message wherever I go. If you are ever a Texan, then it is forever! Good for you, State Rep Larson. National representatives should proceed the way of Texas: Meet once every two years and then go back home and stay out of trouble. Nat'l reps need to know what the people are saying and can't do it in that clique in DC.

  8. dragonfFIRE01 says:

    Texas is still a republic is she not? i remember when some oil sheikh wanted to buy THE ALAMO for his son and that fool almost started a war. not with the US with TEXAS.. i was living there then. and it's still int thestate Constitution that she can secede

    • 6th Gen Texan says:

      Texas was never legally admitted to the US as a state. Details are here: _https://www.texasrepublic.info/drupal/noneed_

    • Billy Hill says:

      If Texas secedes,I will be a citizen of the Republic of Texas the next day

      • Bill do not wait for the next day , just come and join now. To secede means to tell D.C. to go to hell and we stay connected to the rest of the Union; Texas is a reach State and we can make it better by giving a pink slip to our elected Retards in Austin and send them on a permanent vacation with no paycheck, retirement and benefits that includes no balls, testicles or coyones of Perry. We replace the Retards in Austin with senior citizens, retirees , disabled vets and have an honest efficient system; next would be solve the problems with ILLEGALS. By enforcing E-Verify we can have a precise count and start seperating the good from the bad and deport the criminals; the Illegals can work and pay taxes, No Citizenship because they broke the law by jumping the fence; but establish something similar to a Green Card (not green of course , but say red , so to know who they are).

        • rafael cafagna says:

          We have natural resource ; we have a shortage of water and I have the solution for that ( I sent the Idea to Perry and Speaker Strauss, but nothing ). We can solve the problem with the Borders ; stop the welfare system and put everyone to work. Of course nothing is easy ; I believe it is matter of Honesty, Discipline , Respect , Love of God Country and Freedom. The prison system is a joke here in the state ! if a criminal admits his wrongs then an eye for an eye! if they say they didn't do it then due process…we have more than 300 prisoners on death row that live better than my daughter & her children do. DEATH ROW… it speaks for itself…they are there for a reason & we Texans need to end this non sense & extra expense…how many child molesters are we paying all there expenses? RESEARCH this one …you will be amazed…With a population of 26 Million ,time is here to ask yourself : what do I want ??? Freedom is not a dog with his tail between his legs ,do not speak or say anything and * Do what I tell you , Don`t do what I do * . I am a Free man in a Free State of Texas. 26 Million Texians , please think about it. Thanks.

  9. Every State in the Union should and MUST stop the implementation of this totally unconstitutional act. Obama if anyone should be Detained under is my Choice for the First to be shipped to Gitmo as he collaborates with the Muslim Brotherhood and Works hand in hand with CAIR whichhas known ties to Hamas and other Terrorist groups. Those are my first choices for this if implemented law

  10. This a true testimony to what the founding fathers had envisioned in terms of limiting power. Texas has backbone and might very well save the republic due to her example. Our faith in God and his provision is the only thing we can trust. I know many people from Texas and they feel strongly about limited government, liberty, the right of the state to represent her people. Obama is a Marxist and his policies attest to it. His campaign slogan, "Forward" is borrowed from previous communist material. Russians are amused by the American people as they are well aware of who we put in power. Our Russian neighbors who speak English well enough to understand warned us and all of our neighbors about this administration from their personal experience. It was interesting to see their perspective since they are not politically correct and don't worry about offending. They claimed they didn't come to America for this. They escape it and were concerned how many actually believed what they were sold. They have decades of seeing policies like these in action and the final result. So many have fallen for the "social justice" message and are grossly deceived.

  11. george jones says:

    Five hundred thirty five jerks sit in congress, and do the biding of the New world order. They are turning America into a police state. Step by step they are destroying our constitution . The Dems and Repubs are one and the same, we the people have to see through the Fog of deception and let put a stop to it. we should be doing the same thing the people of Egypt are doing by taking to the streets and letting congress and the president know we have laws and a constitution, that they must adhere too. They are not above the law ! Evil thrives when good men do nothing, time to get rid of these traitors.

    • Since the Dems and RINOS go along with Odumbo on his Marxist agenda, they too are at fault for this mess we are in. Nevertheless, there are still a hand full of Conservative Tea Party Congressmen who are trying their best to save this country. Against all odds, patriots like Paul Ryan, Michele Bachmann, Ron Paul, and Bobby Jindal are doing their best to save us. Because of them, we can say that not all of Congress is the same. They are this generation's New Founders. God be with them.

    • we need to march to washington and physically drag these butt wipes out of our white house. and don't forget your shotguns…

    • Linda A. From NY says:

      To George Jones,
      Haven't you heard that this government brought over a billion bullets 3 for each US citizen. I believe that they are preparing just in case there is a uprising, and obama signed another executive order for Marital Law of Dec. 2011.

    • Dennis Bartlett says:

      George , For too long I've been saying your words . There is Right – Left paradigm and matters not who you vote for . We are being used by both sides for their inevitable ends .
      Had we a populace that would rise up and do a Tanimin Square or something equal to it maybe we could get back to some sense of normalcy and justice . Americans have become complicit , complacent and lost!

    • I agree 100% we need to hit the streets! set it up and ill be their!!! e-mail, iphone etc everyone!

  12. Thank you Representative Larson for standing up for the Constitution and the people of Texas. I pray other states will do the same.

  13. Texas seems to actually think for it's self. The Government people in my state don't seem to be that smart. I know they have room for me in Texas .I'm thinking about it. The politicians we have now are none to smart. A total collapse is probably the only way out of this mess. I wonder how obama likes inheriting this mess from himself.. The states could probably be able to repair things if the federal Government would just shut up and go home ..

  14. Seeks_the_truth says:

    I commend Texas for standing up to this unconstitutional rule. More states, and people, need to stand up for whats right.
    I do draw the line at saying how "great" Texas is. It's one state I would never live in. The education system is at the bottom second only to California. Their debt is also the highest second only to California. The population of illegal aliens are one of the highest, again second to California. Their prison system holds the most prisoners second only, yet again, to California.
    I'm sure those who live there or are from there are proud of their state. It's just too high of a taxed state, and other serious issues, for me to want to live there.
    I do give them kudos for standing up to big government.

    • Edwardkoziol says:

      Your Right Seeks on the Factor last night Bill compared Texas to Cal and some of diferences are the same like education & debt.Both states cater to the illegal amigoes.

    • Glad to now you do not want to live in Texas cause we do not like people like you living in our great State.
      Happy to know you agree with the State in it's fight against Dictator Obama and his thugs in Washington.
      You are totally wrong about your stats and you should educate yourself before you pop off. There is no personal tax in Texas like CA for example.

      • Hustler is right about the personal taxes. However, if you two should ever change your minds, Texas is truly a great place to live. I wasn’t born here either, but I did get here as fast as I could, some 30 years ago, and I plan on staying. By the way, our elected “idiots” may support the ILLEGALS, but you can bet your asses that WE TEXANS DON”T! And when push comes to shove, Texans will stand up and be counted first. I think that there is a lot that people don’t know about Texans. And it would fill volumnes………and I know that if I as one person, feels what I do about “certian” things and people, I know now that I am not alone in this thinking. So, I think that there is a lot to be said for this state that I fell in love with 30 years ago, and a lot of it cannot be said on this forum. Unless I am forced out, I plan on sticking like glue to my chosen state, the Lone Star State, long may Texas Stand! Call me the Disgusted Yellow Rose of Texas!

      • Seeks_the_truth says:

        Glad to know I wouldn't be welcomed because I won't kiss illegal alien ass in Texas. My state also has no personal taxes, but I bet my states property taxes are less than 1/10th of yours.
        I'm not wrong in my stats about Texas, those who compile the stats must be. You might want to learn a little more about the state you live in before you pop off showing yourself to be ignorant about your own state.
        Please don't ever leave it. No other state welcomes idiots.

  15. We need the CONSTITUTION honored & protected, like these politicians swore in their oath of office. Beyond that, we DO NOT NEED MORE INTERVENTION IN OUR LIVES!

  16. California does not have any politicians with the backbone to stand up for it's citizens like Texas has.
    We are the number one socialist state in America. We are last in everything else??

  17. California does not have any politicians with the backbone to stand up for it's citizens like Texas has.

    • You got that right . What do you expect when California have Barbara Boxer . She is a much of a traitor has Obama is .

  18. me and my family will back texas all the way to what ever means…hope florida is paying attention.

    • carolyn Mortensen says:

      I am hoping Florida takes a stand also. We as a people need to stand up to this. The government will not do it.

  19. Richard Sanders says:

    ALL RIGHT LYLE: THANK YOU for YOUR GENUINE REPRESENTATION. We sorely need other officials to follow in your firm footsteps at all levels of government to NAY SAY The "OVERSTEPPING OLIGARCH" on this and his other heinously presumptuous acts of usurpation. We out here must all encourage the new legislative session to get well acquainted with the 10th amendment and the power of nullification. Folks, let's give them no rest. Recall is an option.

  20. Max Sanchez says:

    In the beginning there was one (Texas), and the people will soon follow suit. The Govt may have purchased a billion bullets, they still need someone to fire those bullets. The military won’t fire on fellow Americans, families, friends and neighbors. I believe they will abandon their post and join ranks before they would follow unlawful orders.

    • Linda A. From NY says:

      To Max,
      I believe when you say that our own military won't fire on us, however keep in mind that obama is dirty and he will used the UN military on us, obama is capable of anything.

      • The southern states didn't think they would have to fight to secede either. Even though the founders agreed it was their right and a way to keep the federal government in check.

      • Those blue helmets will make good fence post caps

      • younggranny says:

        Remove your rose colored glasses. Yes some in our military won’t fire on us, but Today’s US military is loaded with “mercenaries”— they’ll obey any order for the paycheck. It’s fascism all over again. The land of the free will soon be a war zone but even so, with American gun owners being the largest sitting army in the world (about 100 million strong) somehow we will prevail.

    • Wrong! The US Army attacked and killed American veterans of WW I in ashington DC when these veterans demanded their WW I bonuses. The charge was led by Douglas MacArthur.

  21. Obama needs to be impeached before more harm can be done to the United States of America

  22. Interesting how the author says this was demanded by Pres. Obama when Sen. McCain proposed this exact legislation in 2010 and it got shoved under the mat quickly so he could win re-election. I'm sorry but both parties are guilty on this. If the GOP really had an issue with it they wouldn't have voted so overwhelmingly for the NDAA.

  23. Is Texas the only state with balls?

    Great news and all states should follow. Why should they? Instead of looking to indict these traitorous, treacherous criminally corrupt, the voters just re-elected them and sent them back to DC! It's true, you really do get the gov't you deserve. Well, not ALL of us. Some of us had the IQ to vote against them.

  29. Kevin Miller says:

    It's sure a proven truth that my state,Pennsylvania,because of the dominance by leftists government
    officials(Critz,Casey,Corbett,Mahoney,etc.),will never have The Balls to stand up to oBUMa and his
    leftist,muslim loving regime! I don't think we've stood up against anything oBUMa has pushed on our
    nation(oBUMacare,NDAA and other unconstitutional acts of High Crime).It's time to put ALL these
    Criminals in prison until their soon-to-be Executions commenced(and I'm talking local,state and federal)!

  30. Yeah right///the American Pub;ic made it VERY clear that they /we did NOT want the Obamacare health care plan and so the govt passed it anyway…Just so we could see what was in it! Bull@#$%!!! This govt could care less what the public thinks! they pass what they want, when they want, and for their purposes…U.S.takeover!! There is ONLY one way to stop what is going on….and that is a chance of one to the 147th power

  31. I comment Texas for standing up to any unconstitutional rules. I hope the other states follow Texas.
    We also need to opt out of Obamcare ordering someone to buy something should be unconstitutional.
    The Supreme Court said any State can opt out if they want. If he can make us buy this he can order
    us to buy other things as well.

  32. To secede means to tell D.C. to go to hell and we stay connected to the rest of the Union; Texas is a reach State and we can make it better by giving a pink slip to our elected Retards in Austin and send them on a permanent vacation with no paycheck, retirement and benefits that includes no balls, testicles or coyones of Perry.

  33. Texas has lots of oil,gas,chemicals,fishing ; we have a shortage of water and I have the solution for that ( I sent the Idea to Perry and Speaker Strauss, but nothing ). We can solve the problem with the Borders ; stop the welfare system and put everyone to work. Of course nothing is easy ; I believe it is matter of Honesty, Discipline , Respect , Love of God Country and Freedom.

    • Dennis! you are wrong! i was a member of the military and most of my friends are or were in the service and they will not follow any orders to kill their own people! how ever we are ready to fight the government to get our country back!

      • The military members have a right to not follow an order if they deem it is unlawful. Orders to shoot an American Citizen for unjust cause would be good enough for me.
