Righteous Indignation: Ward Steps Up

Staff Writer, DL Mullan
Government / Arizona

The super secret and totally unconstitutional National Security Agency's  (NSA) surveillance without a warrant is in trouble. According to the website, NullifyNSA:
The new Utah Data Center, a massive spy complex, requires 1.7 million gallons over water every single day to operate.

Those massive supercomputers monitoring your personal information are water-cooled. They can't function without the resources to keep them at operating temperature.

That water is scheduled to be provided by the Jordan Valley River Conservancy District, "a political subdivision of the state of Utah."

Because of this, a state law can be passed banning this partnership. In short, they can turn the water off.
Aren't we as Americans chided by environmentalists and government entities that there is a clean water shortage? Don't use too much? Don't take too long of showers? Don't do this and don't do that?

Yet, big agriculture uses double the amount of clean, fresh water on GMO crops that are not necessary for natural seeds and plants. Now the NSA requires 1.7 million gallons of fresh water a day to keep their illegal spy grid going? 

Is there a water shortage or not? Or is there not enough water for the people because the government and corporations come first? It makes you wonder who is serving whom.

Maybe the overreaching federal government and its tyrannical oppression is about to come to an end. People are waking up and standing up to this unconstitutional hypocrisy. Finally.

Senator Kelli Ward of the Arizona State Legislature stated, “While media attention is focused on a possible effort to shut off water to the NSA data center in Utah, I’m introducing the Arizona Fourth Amendment Protection Act to back our neighbors up,” she said. “Just in case the NSA gets any ideas about moving south, I want them to know the NSA isn’t welcome in Arizona unless it follows the Constitution.”

Hooray! Do you know how long the People of the United States have waited for the states to use their power to counterbalance the federal government? Like, forever! 

States in all reality can push back:
This is based on the undisputed legal doctrine of "anti-commandeering." The federal government has no power to require states to help the feds carry out federal acts or programs in any way.

The Supreme Court affirmed this in these cases: 1842 Prigg, 1997 Printz, 2002 New York, and 2012 Sebelius.
With rulings like these ones from the Supreme Court, states could end expensive and artificial wars on: terror, drugs, and probably poodles too, if the federal government had its way. That is how ridiculous the federal war machine for contractor profits has gotten.

Still there is more: based on model legislation drafted by the OffNow coalition, the Arizona Fourth Amendment Protection Act blocks state support for the NSA through four provisions.
  1. Prohibits state and local agencies from providing any material support to the NSA within their jurisdiction. Includes barring government-owned utilities from providing water and electricity.
  2. Makes information gathered without a warrant by the NSA and shared with law enforcement inadmissible in state court.
  3. Blocks public universities from serving as NSA research facilities or recruiting grounds.
  4. Provides sanctions against corporations attempting to fill needs not met in the absence of state cooperation.
“Right now, all the talk is all about denying water to the NSA facility in Utah. That’s important, but we hope every state will stand up and say, ‘No!’ to the NSA,” he said. “In Federalist 46, James Madison told us a single state resisting an unwarrantable act could create ‘serious impediments.’  But when several states work in union, he said it would ‘create obstructions which the federal government would hardly be willing to encounter.’ Arizona is an important piece of the obstruction puzzle.”

If Senator Ward is serious about stopping unconstitutional acts by the federal government, then let's give her some support. Call your elected State Representative in the House and Senators in the Senate today and everyday!

And if you do not mind, please require Arizona elected officials to also create laws like the Fourth Amendment Protection Act for at least the first Ten Amendments as well as restraining state and local governments from participating in the foreign NGO: ICLEI, which is not legal to do but the lie of sustainability seems to overshadow common sense. Please read Democrats Against UN Agenda 21 for further information.

If Arizona could get rid of Fusion Centers too, that would be a plus to returning our nation back to laws instead of this rampant lawlessness deemed secret and sacred to the federal government. It is a national security issue. Secrets compromise our nation's security, not protect it. 

Senator Ward, thank you, from the people of Arizona.
