Nullification in Alaska

Resistance to the hard left’s ongoing power grab grows:

HB 83 clarifies in Alaska Statute that a federal statute, regulation, presidential executive order, or secretarial order that is not properly adopted or is unconstitutional does not preempt state law. The Attorney General will continue to review and report federal statute, regulation, presidential executive order, or secretarial orders that appear to have not been properly adopted. Under HB 83 those reports will be forwarded to the legislature for consideration.

HB 83 presumes Alaska Legislative interest in an important legal process called “nullification”. Nullification is when a state ‘nullifies’ a federal law, proclaiming it to be void and inoperative, or ‘non-effective’ within the boundaries of that state. In other words it is not a law as far as that state is concerned.

Applications to ObamaCare and gun-grabbing initiatives are obvious.

The Founding Fathers intended the states to serve as a bulwark against federal tyranny. If this bulwark fails, there will be little to prevent Democrats from imposing collectivist totalitarianism.

Progressives are pushing toward the end game. At this point, any inch they are allowed to take could prove fatal to liberty. Kudos to Alaska for showing the resolve to hold the line.

Setting an example.

On a tip from Conan.

    They can see tyranny from their front porch.

    Right on, Alaska!

  • whotothewhat

    As time goes on I can see more states following Alaska’s lead.

  • Comrade J

    Hopefully other states follow, I’d rather not move to Alaska. No offense to the state. The half a year night gets me.

  • MicahStone

    This actions seems totally inconsistent for a state with two turds elected as US senators. But it’s a step in the RIGHT direction.

  • Doug

    Obama’s personal army would have to drive through Canada to come and ‘take over’ Alaska.

    Oh my, what would the UN think of that?

  • Maudie N Mandeville

    Lex malla, lex nulla.

    “If this bulwark fails, there will be little to prevent Democrats from imposing collectivist totalitarianism.”

    No, there’s one more thing, and it involves the patriotic citizens and a certain Amendment to the Constitution. And at the rate the patriotic citizens are buying guns and ammo, that “one thing” may happen very soon.

    I moved to a blue state with my job – effing union thugs and slugs under every rock – and I don’t see them joining with Alaska anytime soon. They are much more likely to join with NY, MO, CO, CA …

    I can’t wait to get out and head west north west (ish).

  • Ghost of FA Hayek

    But then they invoke a perverted definition of the Interstate Commerce Clause while forcing you to bend over and cough.

  • Skyfall

    Right with you Laurie. I can tell you one thing, the progs I know are VERY upset and nervous about all those American citizens availing themselves of that particular Constitutional amendment. They could care less about gangs or drug dealers or “civilian security forces”.

    It’s the honest, hard-to-corrupt, hard-to-lie-to free man that scares the sh*t out of them. Maybe it’s ’cause they know which side of history they’re really on.

    “…from my cold, dead fingers.”

    Time to have the ESA declared UNCONSTITUTIONAL and nulify the polarbear listing

  • Conan


    Come for the FREEDOM, stay for the jobs.

    Once we secede from the Disunion, we’ll be drilling and mining and refining!


    Only two roads “into” AK and those mountain passes are easily blocked. Only other way is in through ports. Good luck with THAT Obama! haha.

    It’s nullification – not secession.

    God bless Alaska and this effort. But we need one another to beat Obama – unity is crucial.

    I see a shift in the winds anyway.

    The media is getting pissed, Obamacare is being dumped by the states, blacks are feeling edgy, Obama is appearing too cocky, the administration’s errors are growing exponentially, the military is balking, the job market is still weak, states are fighting gun control w/legislation, conservative states are showing headway and liberal states are slacking, unions have lost power, the media is catching on to the hellish black violence………ah hell, the list is too long.

    Suffice to say, the actual conservative victory in the last election is beginning to play out in positive and unexpected ways….

    Hopefully, we won’t need as much ammo as we thought – but don’t let your guard down.

    Bullets will fly to either end Barry’s reign of terror or sometime during it between Red vs. Blue states.

    the supreme court does not yet realize that it has nullified its position by nullifying its oath backed task!

    ie. if your job is to protect the constitution and interpret it based on that, and your pay is from and of the people, and you do not protect it. then dont be surprised when states decide to make laws that put you under them, and their own judges above yours.

    which is what Alaska has done here

    a simpler way to put it is, if you do not serve the people that employ you, they wont employ you, they will negate you while you still may get a salary, a robe, and title. but figurehead is what the people decide, when leader is the wrong word

  • Flu-Bird

    Time for all 50 states to suceed from WASHINGTON D.C. its a crinimal empire run by a crinimal president

  • Thank goodness thereis one state that is ‘taking a stand’ against E.O.’s (Executive Orders).

    A TIME TO STAND by Oliver is a must read nowadays. It’s about decent Americans taking a stand against federal tyranny & ends up starting the 2nd American Revolution. It’s provocative so I recommend it.

    Who authored HB 83?
