The Intolerable Acts

TIA-LOGO-250“In matters of power, let no more be heard of the confidence in man, but bind them
down from mischief with the chains of the Constitution.” – Thomas Jefferson

The “skull and crossbones” image is from a 1765 Stamp Act protest cartoon, which pre-dates the “Intolerable (Coercive) Acts” and is super-imposed over the actual hand-written Bill of Rights as proposed by the 1st Congress and sent to the States for ratification. The project logo is derived directly from American history, particularly that relating to abuses of the colonists by King George. 

Our model legislation and resolutions addressing the intolerable indefinite detention provisions of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) Sections 1021-1022 prohibit the application of the “law of war” on U.S. soil and against U.S. citizens anywhere in the world by the U.S. government or its agents with the exception of those persons exempted in the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

State and local governments have a sovereign and constitutional duty to protect and defend the unalienable Rights granted by our Creator regardless of failures and refusals by the federal government.


Another ‘intolerable act’ committed by our government is its refusal to put the lives and well-being of U.S. Citizens first. This includes the refusal of Congress to amend the Uniform Crime Reporting Act (UCR) to require the FBI to track and report illegal alien crime.

Formerly called “The Illegal Alien Crime Reporting Act,” the bill was renamed after a victim in the 113th Congress, becoming H.R.1888, “The Jamiel Shaw, Jr. Memorial Act of 2013.” Click below to learn more:
