Things are going to hell in a hand basket…First of all, let me start by reminding every American that “To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.” Theodore Roosevelt (1901-1909)
House Bill HR 347
This was copied from RT (Click here to be taken directly to rt.com to read it for yourselves.)
Just when you thought the government couldn’t ruin the First Amendment any further: The House of Representatives approved a bill on Monday that outlaws protests in instances where some government officials are nearby, whether or not you even know it.
The US House of Representatives voted 388-to-3 in favor of H.R. 347 late Monday, a bill which is being dubbed the Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011. In the bill, Congress officially makes it illegal to trespass on the grounds of the White House, which, on the surface, seems not just harmless and necessary, but somewhat shocking that such a rule isn’t already on the books. The wording in the bill, however, extends to allow the government to go after much more than tourists that transverse the wrought iron White House fence.
Under the act, the government is also given the power to bring charges against Americans engaged in political protest anywhere in the country.
And… It’s not just the president who would be spared from protesters, either.
Covered under the bill is any person protected by the Secret Service. Although such protection isn’t extended to just everybody, making it a federal offense to even accidently disrupt an event attended by a person with such status essentially crushes whatever currently remains of the right to assemble and peacefully protest.
In the text of the act, the law is allowed to be used against anyone who knowingly enters or remains in a restricted building or grounds without lawful authority to do so, but those grounds are considered any area where someone — rather it’s President Obama, Senator Santorum or Governor Romney — will be temporarily visiting, whether or not the public is even made aware. Entering such a facility is thus outlawed, as is disrupting the orderly conduct of “official functions,” engaging in disorderly conduct “within such proximity to” the event or acting violent to anyone, anywhere near the premises. Under that verbiage, that means a peaceful protest outside a candidate’s concession speech would be a federal offense, but those occurrences covered as special event of national significance don’t just stop there, either. And neither does the list of covered persons that receive protection.
With Secret Service protection awarded to visiting dignitaries, this also means, for instance, that the federal government could consider a demonstration against any foreign president on American soil as a violation of federal law, as long as it could be considered disruptive to whatever function is occurring.
When thousands of protesters are expected to descend on Chicago this spring for the 2012 G8 and NATO summits, they will also be approaching the grounds of a National Special Security Event. That means disruptive activity, to whichever court has to consider it, will be a federal offense under the act.
And who do you think introduced this lovely Bill? Take a guess…it’s the same person who wants to pass the “Healthcare Bill” which is so good for the American people that he wants Americans “chipped” and neither him, his family or any other members of congress, or government official is going to partake in. Don’t believe me? Look it up yourself.
Start on page 1000 where it talks about setting up a National Medical Device Registry from H.R. 3200 [Healthcare Bill], pages 1,001-1,008:
(g)(1) The Secretary shall establish a national medical device registry (in this subsection referred to as the ‘registry’) to facilitate analysis of postmarket safety and outcomes data on each device that— ‘‘(A) is or has been used in or on a patient; ‘‘(B)and is— ‘‘(i) a class III device; or ‘‘(ii) a class II device that is implantable, life-supporting, or life-sustaining.”
A "class II device that is implantable?"
Then on page 1,004 it describes what the term "data" means in paragraph 1, section B: ‘‘(B) In this paragraph, the term ‘data’ refers to in formation respecting a device described in paragraph (1), including claims data, patient survey data, standardized analytic files that allow for the pooling and analysis of data from disparate data environments, electronic health records, and any other data deemed appropriate by the Secretary."
Approved by the FDA, a class II implantable device is a "implantable radiofrequency transponder system for patient identification and health information." The Chattanoogan.com
And we think we can get equal rights when the basic fundamental rights of the American people are systematically being stripped away?
This is overwhelmingly starting to sound like “Creeping Sharia” has a foothold in America. Don’t think it’s happening? Again, do some research and start here…http://shariahinamericancourts.com/ even more recently…March 18, 2012 Sharia Victory in Florida Threatens Human Rights
I don’t remember any mentions of Sharia Law until recently. Makes me wonder exactly where Sharia Law got it’s opening to invade our country... Goddess knows I’m going to offend someone so before I do let me say that I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…if things don’t get better, I’m moving my ass down to Mexico!
