Calif. achieved a tremendous victory yesterday when a coalition of grassroots’ efforts managed to persuade Gov. Jerry Brown to sign into law the “California Liberty Preservation Act,” also known as AB-351 and “Habeas Corpus.”

AB-351, which was first introduced by Assemblyman Tim Donnelly in Feb., rejects the unconstitutional National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), also known as “indefinite detention,” declaring the federal law null and void throughout the state. It also bans all cooperation with the NDAA and any other attempts by the feds to indefinitely detain Calif. citizens.

In 2012, Obama signed the NDAA which included a provision allowing “indefinite detention of American citizens without due process at the discretion of the President.”

Infowars reported in Sept. of that same year, US District Court Judge Katherine B. Forrest ruled the “indefinite detention” provision unconstitutional and permanently blocked it.

However, within just 24 hours the Obama administration appealed the judge’s ruling. The Second Circuit Court overturned the temporary injunction, making it once again “legal” for Americans to be kidnapped off the street and held without charges or a trial.

The Second Circuit court has overturned a temporary injunction which had blocked the indefinite detention provision of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) – meaning Americans can now once again be kidnapped and held without trial.

In September 2012, United States District Court Judge Katherine B. Forrest ruled that the indefinite detention provision of the NDAA was unconstitutional and blocked it permanently. However, within 24 hours of the ruling the Obama administration lodged an appeal and the law has been under temporary injunction until now.

Americans can once again “legally” be snatched off the street and detained without trial based on the mere claim that they provided aid or support to terrorists, despite this being a total violation of habeas corpus.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Imagine the scenario: A federal agent attempts to arrest someone for illegally selling a machine gun. Instead, the federal agent is arrested — charged in a state court with the crime of enforcing federal gun laws.

Farfetched? Not as much as you might think.

The scenario would become conceivable if legislation passed by Missouri’s Republican-led Legislature is signed into law by Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon.
