Take action to Stop CISPA, and learn more about this legislation here:
After operating a clandestine ID program for over three decades without any statutory authority, the Washington State Department of Licensing in conjunction with the WASPC (Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs) introduced S.B. 5591 last February, in an attempt to give the program legitimacy after information of the program began to come out.
Although at least 22 states operate legitimate fictitious ID programs to aid undercover officers according to an American Association of Motor Vehicle Administration survey, Washington state's program was never authorized by the legislature and had virtually no rules or oversight. Not even the states current and former Governors were aware allegedly.
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.

On March 26th, we asked you to contact Representative Tobin, who was blocking HB 2573 from coming up for a vote.
The response was huge.
Activist Post, Western Journalism, Lew Rockwell Blog, and several other websites picked up the alert, which was seen by thousands of people across the web. The Action Alert worked so well, according to our friends at Freedom Outpost, that Rep. Tobin did a 180 and changed his stance on the bill.
Now, State Senator Tick Segerblom is blocking Nevada's Anti-NDAA legislation.
The 2102 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) authorized the indefinite military detention, extraordinary rendition, and application of the laws of war without charge or trial of anyone, including U.S. citizens. SB378, once amended, will protect the rights of the people of Nevada. It has 16 cosponsors, including 14 Republicans and two Democrats, more than nearly every other bill in the legislature.
When PANDA Nevada's State Team Leader, Chris Corbett, met with Senator Segerblom last week, the Senator laid out a challenge:
"If people really care about this bill, they'll call me"
Tick Segerblom is playing games with our rights, and he has laid out a challenge. Let's show him we don't play games with our unalienable rights.
Call or Fax State Senator Tick Segerblom and politely tell him to defend our unalienable rights. Tell him to honor his oath, and bring SB 378 up for a vote. Most of all, tell him if he does not, you and countless others will not only refuse to vote for him, but do whatever it takes to unseat him from office.
Contact State Senator Tick Segerblom NOW (Out-of-staters are encouraged to contact as well, and we find it most effective if you don't mention your state):
Sen. Tick Segerblom
(The Senator does not accept emails, he considers them not worth his time)
