The First Amendment Has Been Repealed So, STFU!
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Every time Congress meets they take away more of our liberties.
March 8, 2012 H.R. 347 was signed by the constitutional law professor, Barack Obama. It is cleverly worded to make perfect sense, but there are some parts I have a problem with.
Don’t we already have enough laws? Isn’t it already illegal to trespass or commit violent acts against other people? Why do we need duplicate, superfluous laws?
They use the law to break the law.
H.R. 347 states:
‘‘(1) knowingly enters or remains in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority to do so;
‘‘(2) knowingly, and with intent to impede or disrupt the orderly conduct of Government business or official functions, engages in disorderly or disruptive
conduct in, or within such proximity to, any restricted building or grounds when, or so that, such conduct, in fact, impedes or disrupts the orderly conduct of Government business or official functions;
‘‘(3) knowingly, and with the intent to impede or disrupt the orderly conduct of Government business or official functions, obstructs or impedes ingress or egress to or from any restricted building or grounds… shall be punished…
‘‘(1) the term ‘restricted buildings or grounds’ means any posted, cordoned off, or otherwise restricted area—
‘‘(C) of a building or grounds so restricted in conjunction with an event designated as a special event of national significance; and
‘‘(2) the term ‘other person protected by the Secret Service’ means any person whom the United States Secret Service is authorized to protect under section 3056 of this title or by Presidential memorandum, when such person has not declined such protection.” – Government Printing Office
This affects both sides of the political spectrum. The side that gets the worse treatment is the side opposite of the party in power at the time.
The law says that you must knowingly break it. You must trespass with the intent of disruption.
This law outlaws protests. Not all protesters are trespassers. All protests aren’t premeditated.
How could Joe Wilson know beforehand that he would need to call Obama a liar? It doesn’t matter though. He disrupted a Government function. The man with the, “What Bill?” sign committed a premeditated act of disorderly conduct and deserves to be Joe Wilson’s cell-mate.
Do you remember this incident?
How many “hate crimes” did you hear committed by the yelling of the “N” word? None. Doesn’t matter. They are all guilty of obstructing and impeding ingress or egress to or from restricted buildings or grounds.
Newt Gingrich and I frequent the same restaurant. The last time I saw him there; he was accompanied by Secret Service. The restaurant isn’t a restricted building. Dinner isn’t a Government function. Many people walked up to him and spoke with him, but if this law was in effect then; anyone who debated with him or held up a vote Romney sign in the dining room would be a felon.
This is just the beginning. Don’t think that they aren’t working on a way to extend this law to protests and dissent everywhere. They won’t stop until they stop us from saying bad things about them, writing contrary opinions about what they do, or thinking ill thoughts about them.
They need you to stay home and not interrupt them when they pass unconstitutional laws like this designed to install tyranny and reduce the population to just them and their ilk. They don’t need you exposing their lies and waking people up to the truth. These people are smarter and better than you. They know what’s best for you and they don’t need your interference while they’re controlling your lives, OK?
Just be a good citizen and STFU!
