Spies Not Welcome Here ! Arizona Bans NSA & Use of Warrantless Data in Court

Hard to believe isn’t it, but indeed the wild wild west is bucking the Feds by presenting an important piece of legislature called  The  Arizona 4th Amendment Protection Act, but Arizona is not the only state looking to enforce this act. Arizona joins Washington State, Oklahoma, Indiana, California and Tennessee in considering the Fourth Amendment Protection Act. Bills addressing one aspect of the OffNow campaign – data sharing – are pending in Kansas and Missouri. Sources close to the Coalition indicate lawmakers in several other states will introduce the act in the coming weeks.

Arizona state Senator Kelli Ward made good on her commitment to introduce legislation that would withdraw all state support of the NSA and hang a big “Spies Not Welcome Here” sign on the front door of the Grand Canyon State this week.

After being the first legislator in the country to announce an intent to do so last fall, Ward along with nine sponsors introduced the Fourth Amendment Protection Act on Wednesday. SB1156 (http://tenthamendmentcenter.us7.list-manage.com/track/click?u=0bf446a401ca502206549bf30&id=f6a92f6e71&e=433cb86a72) also garnered four co-sponsors, including senate President Andy Biggs.

Based on model legislation drafted by the OffNow Coalition (http://tenthamendmentcenter.us7.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=0bf446a401ca502206549bf30&id=c903e6955e&e=433cb86a72) , the Arizona Fourth Amendment Protection Act would ban the state from engaging in activities which help the NSA carry out their warrantless data-collection programs, or even make use of the information on a local level.

The Coalition is organized by the Tenth Amendment Center (TAC) and the Bill of Rights Defense Committee, a civil liberties group advised by well known anti-establishment figures such as Daniel Ellsburg and Naomi Wolf.

What does the bill attempt to ban thus far?

ONE: The bill reads, in part, the state of Arizona will not “provide material support or assistance in any form to any federal agency that claims the power to collect, or comply with any federal law, rule, regulation or order that purports to authorize the collection of, electronic data or metadata of any person pursuant to any action that is not based on a warrant that particularly describes the person, place and thing to be searched or seized.”

TWO: The legislation also bans the use of warrantless data in courts in the state. A Reuters report (http://tenthamendmentcenter.us7.list-manage.com/track/click?u=0bf446a401ca502206549bf30&id=4d447ac1f1&e=433cb86a72) last year revealed that the NSA shares data with state and local law enforcement through a secret outfit called the Special Operation Division (SOD). The federal government also shares data mined by its agencies, including the NSA, through “fusion centers.”

THREE:  The legislation also addresses relationships between the NSA and public universities. Currently, the spy agency has agreements with 166 schools across the U.S. Two Arizona state universities currently maintain partnerships with the NSA. The Arizona Fourth Amendment Protection Act would address the status of Arizona State University and the University of Arizona, Tucson, as NSA “Centers of Academic Excellence” and would prevent future agreements with other state schools.

While the NSA does not operate a physical facility in the state , the prohibition of material support sends an important message to the spy agency by pulling up the welcome mat.

NSA expands it’s physical locations

“We know the NSA is aggressively expanding its physical locations, not just in Utah, but in Texas, Hawaii and other states too. Since the NSA  isn’t transparent about its plans, it’s essential to not only address where it is right now, but work to get the rest of the country to say, ‘You’re not welcome here either!’ Our plan is to box them in and do everything we can to stop them.” ~TAC national communications director Mike Maharrey
“It’s important for Arizona to take a stand with California, Washington State, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Indiana, Kansas and Missouri. We need to take steps to protect the Fourth Amendment, even if the NSA refuses to,” he said. “And while one state might not make a difference, all of us together will.”

AGENDA 21

At first glance, the  AGENDA 21 document seems like a way to manage the worlds food supply, environment, public health issues, energy and housing and the likes. But if you really read it, red flags  begin to pop up. Could this actually be the beginnings of a global government? And though many have already asked this question, is it about management, or CONTROL?

For instance, did science  ever really  prove that we are in a global warming cycle?

Remember Al Gore?

    The heck the NSA doesn’t have a physical presence in AZ. Look to Global Crossings, right there in Phoenix. Global is owned by Level 3 Communications, Obama’s private, very large IT company. Check GSA contract # GS-35F-0117J. Also see…http://www.publicintegrity.org/2011/06/15/4880/obama-rewards-big-bundlers-jobs-commissions-stimulus-money-government-contracts-and

    So, they have unfettered access to our internet traffic, e-mails and the complete contents of our computers, and they’re not spying?
