11 States Fight Back Against NSA Spying

Can American States Rein In An Out-Of-Control Federal Spy Agency?

The American people aren’t falling for NSA’s propaganda. They want the rogue agency reined in.

But Obama refuses to rein in the NSA, Dianne Feinstein says that Congress “doesn’t have the votes” to do anything about mass surveillance, and at least some judges are supporting the NSA’s spying (and it’s not clear what the Supreme Court will do).

But states are trying to fight back …

Legislation has been introduced in 10 states (and counting) proposing one or both of the following:

(1) Cutting off water, electricity or other resources to NSA facilities within the state

(2) Prohibiting the state’s cooperation with the NSA; for example, sharing data about its citizens, or university research support for NSA

For information about the state legislation:

And see this.

While this may sound to some like a Republican approach, Democrats who support the NSA will be vulnerable next election, and progressives need to re-claim freedom from mass surveillance as a core issue:

    Eric Holder will squash all these futile movements. After all elections coming up this year and these bums are campaigning to screw us again.

    • Cal

      Actually many of us are fighting to have Holder, along with others, arrested by those who are lawfully charged by the US Constitution to do so the Militias of the several states; charged with Murder, Treason, Arm Trafficking, War Crimes (believe he was already also indicted already as Obama, H. Clinton, Panetta, Dempsey and others were, only needing prosecution), and various other crimianl and civil crimes.

      Both treason and murder carry death penalties if convicted.

      The Militias of the several states authority where they are given the duties to:

      Enforce the US Constitution and each state’s Constitution,
      Enforce and keep the “Laws of the Union” (which is constitutional laws ONLY),
      Protect the country against all enemies both domestic and foreign, and

      “to suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions”

      All able-bodied Americans plus those lawfully allowed to be here – excluding “public servants”, “law enforcement” and standing “military” – from age 18 through age 60 are the Militia of the several states. The Militia equals “We the People of the USA” because each state’s Militia is made of its lawful citizens excluding “representatives”, and the state’s can work together as needed for defense and to enforce the US Constitution or each state’s Constitution.

      US Constitution, Article I, Section. 8, Clause 11: “To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water”.

      The congress has the duty to grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal when they are needed to enforce the US Constitution, the laws, or defend the people and the nation. This is using private citizens in their own privately owned crafts to defend the USA and her people, this is using the Militia.

      Clause 15 requires of the congress: “To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel invasions INVASIONS”. (When the congress is turned and will not do the duty as required the states are next. If the corruption reaches even to the states then the Militia must take it upon themselves to do the duty LAWFULLY assigned to them.)

      Clause 16 makes it very clear that the ARMING OF THE MILITIA OF EACH STATE is a LAWFUL duty assigned to the congress that they are REQUIRED to carry out. Clause 16:

      “To provide for organizing, ARMING, and disciplining, the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress”.

      I know my place, Holder, etc does not know his/theirs or is/are deliberately committing treason against the USA and all her people.

      When the founders created the US Constitution they realized that we would never be able to count on state and federal representatives or agencies to protect our lives, property, and freedom. They decided to continue with what the people here had already been using, and the one proven throughout history to have the best needs of the people themselves always put first, the Militia of the several states.

        Cal it does not look to promising. Obama and his under bosses continue to do what they please. Obama has imperial power for three more years. Obama is populating positions of power in the government with minorities especially Muslims. The impact on social and government policy will impact this country for years to come. Regardless of who takes over the White House in 2017 these “Obamachurian” Candidates will be still under his control. After all Obama made it clear he plans on remaining in Washington after his official royalty expires.This explains it.

          Obama is the rogue Pentagon NSA’s puppet. He’s powerless. His dog has more free will and freedom of action than he does.

      • jack

        I don’t know how this fits in with you view of things, but I certainly think that the Mass Nat. Guard should take over the Boston Marathon investigation (it appears to have been a false flag attack carried out in the guise of a drill) and the CT Nat. Guard should commandeer the investigation of the Sandy Hook hoax false flag (anyone see a dead body?). Both actions would be legal under their oath to uphold the Constitution.

        However the state militias (do you mean the Reserve and Nat. Guard?) are no match for Pentagon troops. Patriots in the Pentagon need to first arrest/cashier out the Israel-first treasonous traitor lackeys (who carried out 9/11 on behalf of the foreign power Israel) and then close down the unconstitutional, illegal NSA and arrest all its commanders.

    When a nation builds an Empire, it makes a lot of enemies. As a politician’s only concern is the next election, an Empire’s only concern is maintaining the structures that support it. NSA’s only concern is collecting the info that guarantee’s those props(reserve currency, military superiority, political continuity) and absolute control… it was never terrorism. It may be that They are not at all distressed that Snowden leaked all that data as the conversation around that leak is all about spying on Americans. Makes for convenient cover for their real mission.

      When a nation builds an Empire, it NEEDS enemies.

  • Cal

    When he asks “if this is a Constitutional issue because the federal government” is involved. His answer was wrong.

    The federal government is ONLY supreme when it is performing the duties assigned by the US Constitution in a constitutional manner and NOT going against the limitations put on them by it. The Bill of Rights is a list of limitations put upon the federal government that they cannot do – not and still be our government lawfully.

    Preamble to the Bill of Rights: “… THE Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that FURTHER DECLARATORY AND RESTRICTIVE CLAUSES SHOULD BE ADDED: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution. …” (emphasis is mine with the key words being “further” and” restrictive” showing the the US Constitution constrains those within the federal gov no matter what branch they are in.)

    When they are NOT following the US Constitution and doing the duties as per the contract they agreed to when they took office it becomes what is known as a “legal fiction” – there is no more fed gov that can LAWFULLY speak for the American people, take our money, etc. The “laws”, bills, etc they make are really just “color of law” fake laws implemented by those ignorant of our government or willingly being traitors. Not only can we replace them without an election, they can and should be tried for treason against the USA, and for all other criminal and/or civil crimes they have committed.

    When the feds toss around the term “emergency powers” as if it had any lawful binding on us here in the USA. It does not. “Emergency powers” are the direct opposite of what our legitimate government is. It is a “legal fiction” and those who implement them are attacking the USA. PERIOD! The US Constitution did not give the authority to create “emergency powers” the courts did. But the courts were given the duty to make sure that everything was IN PURSUANCE THEREOF THE US CONSTITUTION. They gave themselves the “power” to interpret it – which is also a “legal fiction”.

    When you do not know what our highest laws are – the US Constitution and each state’s Constitution – they can tell you that they are anything and you will not know differently.

    It won’t work. Cutting off their water would only cause them to declare the source a federal military zone or a national park, and they would take control back.

    I saw a news piece indicating that Utah can now be added to the list of states.

    This may be the only way to stop the tyranny of the military NSA spying on all Americans.

    I say that because the political power of the military in Washington, D.C. has become overwhelming.

    Why isn’t our state doing this yet?

    I have a friend, kind of a strange friend, he had been having trouble in the family court… anyway he wanted to borrow my gas container and money for gas – I thought “no problem” but then he came back and wanted to borrow my chainsaw… Well the next day I heard there was a power outage to the court building – apparently a wooden utility pole that… Oh gosh, it couldn’t have been him now could it?
