Middleton, ID Unanimously Bans NDAA Indefinite Detention

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.”

As Jason said, the city council of Middleton deserves some special recognition. In most cities and counties, including all of the above, the NDAA Resistance had to apply massive pressure to get anything passed.

In Middleton, it was different. Thanks to the behind-the scenes work of Councilor Lenny Riccio, when the Resistance presented the Restoring Constitutional Governance Resolution for their consideration, the council did not hesitate. They understood their oaths, acting from their hearts. Without a word, and with only three citizens in the chambers asking them to defend the rights of their people, the council did not hesitate.

Acting on one accord, after less than 10 minutes of discussion, the Middleton City Council passed the RCGR unanimously on Wednesday.

Middleton becomes the fifth city to stand against the tyranny found in the NDAA, joining Albany, NY, Webster and Oxford, MA, Clark County, NV, Gem County and Emmett, ID.

This comes in the wake of a major victory as Governor Butch Otter signed legislation nullifying all federal gun laws last week.
