NDAA Opposition, Second Michigan County Says “NO!” To Federal Kidnapping

OAKLAND COUNTY, Mich. (Oct. 18, 2012) – The list continues to grow.

On Thursday, yet another local government condemned detention provisions written into the National Defense Authorization Act.

The Oakland County, Mich. Board of Commissioners unanimously approved its Support for the Preservation of Liberty resolution Thursday evening.

The Oakland County Board of Commissioners condemns in no uncertain terms Section 1021 of the 2012 NDAA as it 1) may repeal Posse Comitatus and authorize the President of the United States to utilize the Armed Forces of the United States to police the United States of America, 2) authorize the indefinite detention of persons captured within the United States of America without charge until the end of hostilities as purportedly authorized by the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force, 3) subject persons captured within the United States of America to military tribunals, and 4) authorize the transfer of persons captured within the United States of America to a foreign country or foreign entity.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Oakland County Board of Commissioners finds that the enactment into law by the United States Congress of Section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012, Public Law Number 112 81, is inimical to the liberty, security and well-being of the people of Oakland County and was adopted by the United States Congress in violation of the limits of federal power in the United States Constitution.

  • The resolution also calls on all county agencies to refuse cooperation with any federal agents attempting to implement indefinite detention under the NDAA within the county limits.

Commissioner Jim Runestad sponsored the resolution, and Michigan resident Dennis Marburger worked tirelessly to get it passed.

    THANKYOU!!!!! SOOOO MUCH!!!! i know youre just one county but its a step in the right direction!! you are a brave soul and a national hero! one day when tyranny has once again been irradicated may your name be remembered alongside all other national heroes!! untill them however why is the entirte state of michiogan not telling obama to stick it where the sun dont shine on this one? by the way, theres a new executive order out now concerning the same criteria as the ndaa, supposed suspected terrorists accused of crimes too vague to allow to stand and not given due process, but instead of disappearing people it freezes their bank accounts and takes all their money!!! this one is just as dangerous if not worse cuz the gov doesnt have to actually kidnap anyone now, but just point their finger at a protester and scream terrorist at them and without trial or charges they can indefinitely seize all their assets forever!!

    NDAA is despotic tyranny. With the secret FISA court we don’t stand a chance. We are all as good as dead. We might as well die fighting for freedom. We should charge the capitol and hold it until the Patriot Act(claptrap) AUMF and NDAA are completely repealed. No other issues. Just the afformentioned. Let’s roll.
