While there is all sorts of bad news and attacks on our freedoms, grassroots movements are pushing back against the threats of tyranny. One of the places most apparent is in the retaliation against the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). Middleton, Idaho city council voted unanimously, 4-0, to ban the application of the NDAA indefinite detention provisions and the laws of war within their city.
The city moved swiftly to declare that their city is not a battlefield, contrary to South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, and thus they are no subject to the laws of war. According to the Middleton resolution, no person will:
- “arrest or capture any person in Middleton, or citizen of Middleton within the United States, with the intent of “detention under the law of war,” or
- actually subject a person in Middleton to “disposition under the law of war,” or
- subject any person to targeted killing in Middleton, or citizen of Middleton within the United States”
“Panda Idaho would like to congratulate the great people of Middleton who have now become the second city in Idaho to block indefinite detention and laws of war,” PANDA (People Against the NDAA) Idaho’s Jason Casella noted. “They have elected a fine group to represent them. I have been to a lot of city council meetings and have never seen one so efficient and detail oriented. The people applaud Middleton’s council for honoring their oath and doing so with no reservations.”
