Solons to ponder TSA, NDAA nullification laws

Austin – Tenth Amendment remedies for oppressive federal law will come into play in the upcoming session of the Texas Legislature.
Lawmakers will get a chance to nullify two hotly contested federal laws that restrict peoples' civil rights in the name of public safety when they convene in January.

For the second time, the travel freedoms of folks catching a plane in the Lone Star State will come under the scrutiny of the eyes of Texas.
The Texas Travel Freedom Act, House Bill 80, would make it a criminal act to do pat down searches on those who opt out of body scans at airports. Under the provisions of Rep. David Simpson's legislation, TSA agents who touch “the anus, breast, buttocks, or sexual organ of the other person, including touching through clothing” without probable cause would be subject to criminal charges. Mr. Simpson is a Republican lawmaker from Longwood.
The practice of separating children from their parents during pre-flight examinations would also make a TSA agent subject to criminal charges, according to the proposed act.
Said Tenth Amendment Center Communications Director Mike Maharrey, “If you walk up to somebody and grab their crotch out on the street, it will land you in jail. Blue uniforms and federal badges don't grant some goon the power to sexually assault you, or at least they shouldn't. A person doesn't forfeit her or his personal dignity or Fourth Amendment protections with the purchase of an airline ticket.”
House Bill 149, pre-filed by Rep. Lyle Larson (R-San Antonio), would make it a crime to indefinitely detain people in Texas, as authorized by the National Defense Authorization Act.
“It is the policy of this state to refuse to provide material support for or to participate in any way with the implementation within this state of Sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (Pub. L. No. 112-81). Any act to enforce or attempt to enforce those laws is in violation of this subchapter.”
Under the two sections cited, federal authorities may arrest and detain without charges, the benefit of legal counsel or reasonable bail anyone who is suspected of terroristic activity. The entire nation is considered a war zone, and people detained under any such suspicions are to be adjudicated under military law by military tribunals without the protections of the Bill of Rights.
Michael Boldin of The Tenth Amendment Center explained the proposed new Texas law this way.
“With four more years of the man who not only signed 'federal kidnapping' into law, but has vigorously defended it in court, there is absolutely zero chance for repeal in Washington, D.C. Our last hope is to stand up and nullify. While Representative Larson will likely be derided by the establishment, if you live in Texas, he deserves your praise. And other state legislators need to follow suit. When enough states stand up and say, 'No!' to unconstitutional federal acts, there's not much that Obama and his gang can do about it. The Constitution and your liberty will win.”
In both cases, the preservation of human dignity and the guarantee of freedom from unreasonable search and seizure under the terms of the Fourth Amendment, and the right to know the charges for which one is detained, to confront witnesses against one self, to have access to legal counsel, to have an opportunity for bail, and to be free from being compelled to making statements that might lead to self incrimination, the Tenth Amendment spokesmen cited the writings of Thomas Jefferson in response to the Alien and Sedition Acts.
In the Kentucky Resolution of 1798, Mr. Jefferson declared the Tenth Amendment “the rightful remedy” to any federal law or action that oversteps the restrictions of constitutional boundaries.
“The several States composing, the United States of America, are not united on the principle of unlimited submission to their general government; but that, by a compact under the style and title of a Constitution for the United Sates, and of amendments thereto, they constituted a general government for special purposes – delegated to that government certain definite powers, reserving, each State to itself, the residuary mass of right to their own self-government; and that whensoever the general government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force.”
