Delegate Bob Marshall asks us to persist.

Delegates Duck NDAA — 3rd Time

Dear Patriots,

For the third day in a row the Republican controlled Virginia House of Delegates has refused to vote on a Senate Amendment to my HB 1160 which prevents any Virginia state or local agency from co-operating in the “detention” of American Citizens without trial, specific charges, counsel for the duration of the war on “terror” as authorized under the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012.

Congress, in the NDAA, has “suspended”  (1) Article 1, Sect. 9 of the US Constitution:   “The Privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the Pubic Safety may require it;”  (2)  Article I, Section 8 or 11 of the Constitution of Virginia;  (3) and, parts of the Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Amendment to the US Constitution.

While there was a debate between myself and Delegate Comstock (R-Fairfax & Loudoun), no vote was taken.  Today (March 5) there were more delegates willing to go on record, but there were not enough to require a recorded vote on delaying the bill for the third day.  Your emails and calls can change this.

I need your help. Please act now and complete the following action steps:

  1. Please contact your delegate and ask that they bring the amendment up for a vote and not support any delay in considering the amendment to HB 1160.  If someone moves to delay the vote you should ask your delegate to demand that such a delaying motion be subject to a record vote.
  2. If you do not know who your delegate is, please go to
  3. Lastly, please ask your delegate why they would support giving anyone unlimited power to arrest citizens without any procedural guarantees?   And ask if they intend to remain silent in the face of this profound threat to Liberty?

HB 1160, as amended 39-1 by the Virginia senate, now reads:  “Notwithstanding any contrary provision of law, no agency or political subdivision of the Commonwealth, or employee of same acting in his official capacity, shall aid an agency of the United States in the unlawful detention of any United States citizen pursuant to 50 U.S.C. § 1541 as provided by the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (P.L. 112-81, § 1021).”

Thank you for your time and your vigilance!

– Bob
