NDAA Defeated in League City, TX – Vote in Texas State House Imminent



The City Council of League City, Texas voted 7-1 to reject NDAA's unconstitutional mandates. As the bill states, the NDAA authorizes:


“1) detainment of persons captured within the United States of America without charge or trial, 2) military tribunals for persons captured within the United States of America, and 3) the transfer of persons captured within the United States of America to foreign jurisdictions, are repugnant to the ‘general, great and essential principles of liberty and free government’ enshrined in Article 1 of the Texas Constitution.”


The resolution instructs League City's public agencies to refuse compliance with NDAA action against anyone. As former New Jersey Superior Court Judge Andrew Napolitano said recently, widespread noncompliance can make a federal law “nearly impossible to enforce”.


Council Member Heidi Theiss sponsored the League City bill and afterward offered thanks to her fellow Council members. Moreover, Theiss said in her Facebook victory announcement:

“there is strong legislation in our state capital that needs to pass [in order] to refuse the use and abuse of federal power against American citizens.” She refers to HB 149, which just had a hearing in a committee of the Texas State House. It will need passing votes in two committees before moving to the full House.


You can help stop NDAA's violation of your constitutional rights.


If you live in Texas, please contact the committee chair of Federalism and Fiscal Responsibility, Brandon Creighton. Politely request Representative Creighton to vote YES on HB149.
