It is almost beyond comprehension that both House and Senate politicians – both democrats and republicans – would pass a bill to limit a citizen’s right to free speech (except in specific government-designated areas) with little debate or public notice. And not so incomprehensible that a communist-oriented president would sign such a bill in secret.

But here it is: House Resolution H.R. 347 which

“…  Amends the federal criminal code to revise the prohibition against entering restricted federal buildings or grounds to impose criminal penalties on anyone who knowingly enters any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority. Defines "restricted buildings or grounds" as a posted, cordoned off, or otherwise restricted area of:

(1) the White House or its grounds or the Vice President's official residence or its grounds,

(2) a building or grounds where the President or other person protected by the Secret Service is or will be temporarily visiting, or

(3) a building or grounds so restricted due to a special event of national significance.” <Source: Congressional Research Service>

Is this really a BIG DEAL?

Listen to what conservative commentator Andrew Napolitano has to say on the issue …

This is what the ACLU had to say about the issue …

“ …while H.R. 347, on its own, is only of incremental importance, it could be misused as part of a larger move by the Secret Service and others to suppress lawful protest by relegating it to particular locations at a public event. These ‘free speech zones’ are frequently used to target certain viewpoints or to keep protesters away from the cameras. Although H.R. 347 doesn't directly address free speech zones, it is part of the set of laws that make this conduct possible, and should be seen in this context.” <Source>

Remember that this is the left-wing ACLU which supports most socialist, Marxist and communist viewpoints of their membership.

Bottom line …

If this bill were simply about protecting the President of the United States and other federal officials, I would not have much concern. However, due to the recent power grab by the Executive Branch of the Government and the morally reprehensible actions of the most corrupt ideological President in modern history, I am worried.

Here is a president who has a vested interest in making sure that the public does not visibly see the large number of people and organizations which are protesting his ideological policies and his actions which are rapidly turning America into a Greece-like socialistic bankruptcy. He says one thing like blaming George Bush for crony capitalism and then does the very same thing as crony socialism.

The real bottom line is that our leaders are so out-of-touch with the American people and the ideals of America that they need to protect themselves against the public which appears to be morally outraged against the decline of America at the hands of these incompetent and corrupt ideologues.

It appears that the timing of this bill is to limit the television coverage of the two major party conventions where protest is a time-honored practice.

There are enough laws on the books to keep the President and other federal officials safe. More laws are not needed. Especially those that cut deeper into the United States Constitution than are necessary.

In the House, this bill was passed with 176 democrat and 223 republican votes. Both corrupt parties are complicit in this outrageous extension and abuse of the constitution and public law.

It is now time to abandon the corrupt political parties and vote for the individual candidate who best serves AMERICA – not the “entitlement” America produced by the democrats and serviced by the republicans, but the real America that was built by individuals and not committees, coalitions and collectives.

Re-register as an independent. Donate time and money only to individual candidates who represent your views. And vote as if your life depends on it … because in 2012 is really does.
