President Barack Obama Signs Bill that Ends Free Speech in Presence of Any Politician

After last year’s tragic shooting in Tucson, Arizona that killed six people and wounded twelve others including Rep Gabrielle Giffords, Congress started work on a bill that would help protect politicians.  With little fanfare, HR 347 was passed by the House and Senate and signed into law this week by President Barack Obama.

The official White House release stated that President Obama,

“Signed into law: H.R. 347, the ‘Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011,’ which makes it a federal crime to enter or remain knowingly in any restricted area of the White House, the vice president’s official residence, or their respective grounds without lawful authority.”

While this may sound fairly mundane, the actual language in the bill can be easily construed to override the First Amendment right of free speech in many situations.

Here is what the bill says,

“Whoever knowingly enters or remains in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority to do so; 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; 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; or knowingly engages in any act of physical violence against any person or property in any restricted building or grounds; attempts or conspires to do so, shall be punished.”

Some members of Congress saw the danger of the wording and voted against the bill.  Among them was Rep Justin Amash (R-MI) who said,

“Current law makes it illegal to enter or remain in an area where certain government officials (more particularly, those with Secret Service protection) will be visiting temporarily if and only if the person knows it’s illegal to enter the restricted area but does so anyway.  The bill expands current law to make it a crime to enter or remain in an area where an official is visiting even if the person does not know it’s illegal to be in that area and has no reason to suspect it’s illegal.

“Some government officials may need extraordinary protection to ensure their safety. But criminalizing legitimate First Amendment activity – even if that activity is annoying to those government officials – violates our rights.”

Rutherford Institute president, John Whitehead responded to the HR 347 by writing,

“The bill’s language is so overly broad as to put an end to free speech, political protest and the right to peaceably assemble in all areas where government officials happen to be present.

“A person eating in a diner while a presidential candidate is trying to score political points with the locals could be arrested if government agents determine that he is acting ‘disorderly.’ Mind you, depending on who’s making the assessment, anything can be considered disorderly, including someone exercising his right to free speech by muttering to himself about a government official. And if that person happens to have a pocketknife or nail clippers in his possession (or any other innocuous item that could be interpreted by the police as ‘dangerous’), he could face up to 10 years in prison.

“Given that the Secret Service not only protects the president but all past sitting presidents, members of Congress, foreign dignitaries, presidential candidates, and anyone who the president determines needs protection, anywhere these officials happen to be becomes a zone where the First Amendment is effectively off-limits.”

“While the Trespass Bill may have started out with the best of intentions, it has ended up as the government’s declaration of zero tolerance for individuals exercising their First Amendment rights.”

Sounds to me as just another expected step toward a Marxist government where no citizen has a right to say or do anything against the government and its politicians.  The old Soviet Union did it.  China and Syria are still doing it and the Socialist States of America will soon be doing it.

America is no longer the land of free as we aren’t free to do very much anymore without it being illegal or offensive to someone else.  At the current rate of America’s decline and loss of freedoms, it’s probably time to scrape the Statue of Liberty and sell it for the copper.

  1. There is no difference between dems and repubs. The duopoly is a farse. Just look at who the the repubs are putting forward as ‘the’ candidate – Romney. He has no real supporters, just sheeple who obey the GOP rulers. He is exactly Obama. The dems and the repubs can be likened to the Leninist Marxists and the Fabian Socialist Marxists – one is overt and one is covert, but their end result is the same.
    This is why I am supporting Ron Paul for President. He’ll blow a much needed hole in their game.

    1.  While I agree with many of Ron Paul’s beliefs, i.e. return to the Constitution, he does not have a prayer of getting the nomination. A vote for Paul is a vote for Obama. That’s too bad, because I like the man and feel he is the most honest candidate.  Unfortunately, there are not enough of us to overcome the tide.

      1. And a vote for Romney is a vote for Obama…same ol same old…Blah blah blah…no wonder we are in this mess…folks like you with screwed up thinking. Thank all of you for NOT sustaining good , honest , moral people for office…lesser of evils my foot.

    2. A vote for Ron Paul is a wasted vote on a fool madman who beleives if you cover your eyes and ears then nothin is happening and thats his national defense. No sane person would vote for Paul.

        1. Don’t know about that Extremely. It is well recognized that the weakness of Paul is how he would relate to other Countries. He seems to be in some time warp going back to the early 18th Century when our biggest protectors where the two great oceans surrounding us.

        2. Ron Paul would like nothing better than to withdraw all our troops from everywhere and hunker down in the U.S. while the rest of the world went to Hell.  That might have worked in the 18th century, but it doesn’t work in the 21st century.  The U.S. has interests that extend outside of our borders.  Ron Paul doesn’t seem to get that.

    3. No he won’t!!! But, we will never know since he has no chance of getting the nomination. The country if finished.

    4. If you don’t see the Difference maybe you should have your eyes checked. Here I’ll point you in the right direction as you search for the truth. Look at each Parties Supporters ..Not the payed political’s but  the Groups and Organizations that rally to each party Standard.

    5. Unfortunately Ron Paul has no chance of winning.  Keep your vote for the elected GOP candidate, no matter who it is, and get Obama out.

      1. NOPE, I will not!!!! Understand when we sustain someone because of a political party we are being poor stewards of our liberty. This pitiful excuse is the reason we are in this mess…thank you for being so stupid…you gave us bush,klinton,another bush and obama…I will not sustain any republican nor democrat as my contscience will not allow me to do so and we will be judged for it.

  2. Amen, giacomo…Trespass Bill (HR 347) is another step taken to ”transform’ our country into that promised marxist eutopia…and it’s being accomplished incrementally, with a bit by bit chipping away of our rights so that eventually, we will be unable to hold our government leaders accountable.

    Can anyone say ”totalitarian” ? Do the names Joseph Stalin, Adolph Hitler, Mao Tse-tung, Pol Pot ring a bell?

    I’m especially angry with the Republican-controlled House. Where the hell was Boehner? Where were all the newly elected Representatives (Tea Party people) who had claimed they were going to Washington to LIMIT the government control of our lives.

    388 voted FOR the bill.

    ONLY 3 voted AGAINST it:

    Rep Justin Amash (R, MI)
    Rep Paul Broun (R, GA)
    Rep Keith Ellison (D, MN)

    42 of our representatives refused to do their job and abstained.

    Well…..This is another BIG reason why we CANNOT trust our own government to do what they took an OATH to do which was  to PROTECT our LIBERTIES by DEFENDING the CONSTITUTION.  THEY’VE GOT TO GO.  

    This makes me want to vomit. 

    Damn them all.

    1. Me too, meeme! We need to vote out every single member of the House and 1/3 of the Senate that is up for re-election!  A new broom sweeps clean. Then pray that the people we put in office will stand up for America and do WHAT IS RIGHT!!!!

      1. Good call Velsia; let’s get rid of every single one of them, including Paul Broun, John Amish and Ron Paul.  Who needs three courageous patriots, right?

    2.  Boehner is right where he has always been, where ever the Progressives have told him to be.
      Look up what he says before, and after he passes a bill. That man is a traitor.

      1. Amen, Karen. Boehner is the poster boy for today’s do nothing, republican party. He is worse than a traitor. And don’t forget Cantor, Hensarling and all of the other motley fools. I would rather get shot in the head by Harry Reid, than stabbed in the back by a RINO (though they would not have the guts to do it).

    3.  All of those who claimed to set things straight in Washington all have a price on there heads if they try to stop anything Obama does! That’s the only thing I can think of!

      1. Not really surprising; Bachmann, like all of the other GOP Presidential candidates save for Dr. Paul; she has compromised with the “powers that shouldn’t be”.

        HR 347 should clear things up for all of the conservatives who are against Ron Paul; but it probably won’t.

    4. Can’t we just fire them now for dereliction of duty? If I don’t go to work and do my job, I get fired (not a self-voted pay increase).  And since obviously there’s no representation in a legislator that doesn’t bother to show up, where’s the problem in firing them NOW?

  3. This damned “Obamanation’ is an “abomination”,and not only alien and inimical to our Historical Core Amweican beliefs but is destructive of them.I believe this to be intended and malicious! We must vote this Cancer out of office-NOW!

      1. All but three House members voted for this horrible law.  Yes, RON PAUL voted against it. 

        Remember all of you loyal and foolish Republican voters – – – the new GOP Congressmen elected by the TEA PARTY voted away our First Amendment rights.

        The two Party system is a delusion; RON PAUL is the only opposition.

        1.  This is not a bad law. It is HR so that means it was initiated in the Republican House of Representatives.

          Don’t get played by these silly godfather articles. This bill hardly ends free speech and it’s not President Obama’s law.

        2. Let me see now, president obummer is currently in office and this law is passing while he is president. It IS his LAW!!!!!

        3. He signed it didn’t he. Didn’t he also take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States (even though those below him may not). Remember the addage: The Buck Stops here. I think that could also include B.S. and Bills passed by congess that violate the Constitution. It seems to be the erra of ” Not my job man “. This attitude has got to stop somewhere doesn’t it?

        4. Let’s not stoop to the same level as liberals who launch vicious attacks against persons rather rational rebuttals of ideas.

        5. Yeah, we should be like the hardcore republicans, who call anyone that disagrees with them a communist even though they don’t even use the term appropriately, or claim to shrink government while banning contraceptives and limiting gay rights. Yeah, they are perfect role models.

        6. YOU need to get your facts straight.  And I am a register Dem. , by the way.  Republican’s are NOT  .  How many times and ways does this have to be phrased before you understand it.  Republican’s ARE NOT BANNING ANY FORM OF CONTRACEPTION. NOR ARE THEY AGAINST CONTRACEPTION.  Republican’s , and lot’s of dem.’s are AGAINST GOVERNMENT  forcing people and business’ to something that is against their concience. There are free contraception centers all over America.  You’re local clinic , “free”  your doctor  “free”  your health centers, “free”,  your family planning organizations, “free”. The stuff is “free” everywhere.  Yet people like you are too lazy to go get it.  Even if the gov. illegally forces people like me to pay for it for you, to go to the local pharmacy and get it, while I pay for my own.  It’s a riducilous assumption that everybody is responsible for you and your decisions but you.  Besides that, I doubt very seriously you even have a job at all.

        7. Um, Rick Santorum has been very clear about his opposition against contraceptives, and has said that he wanted to ban them. Everything he does has do with his religion, not the Constitution. In fact, if you actually read more than the first two amendments, you would realize just how unconstitutional he is (actually, he even violates the first amendment). I’m not against the Republican Party as a whole, but the ones who claim to lead it do have very corrupt agendas.

        8. I dont think they were banning contraceptives at all, they just are protecting the freedom of religion. Not making Catholic run business’s and hospital’s to go against thier core beliefs. Sorry you people have got to do better than that.  I had a Lebanese friend bring that up and I had to educate her too LOL..That her American rights to contraceptives will always be there, She is Catholic so she understood.

        9. Kathy, by “you people” I assume you were referring to liberals. I’m not liberal, and am actually Conservative. I just fon’t swear allegiance to the Republican party. Also, I’m Christian, and I can tell you that the main GOPcandidates are not trying to defend religion. Rick Santorum is trying to make it a lot harder for contraceptives to be given out solely because his faith tells him it’s wrong. Tgat’s not freedom of religion, that’s oppression by a certain religion.

        10. Yes I was referring to the Liberals. I too am a Conservative and a Christian also. See I was under the impression that it had to do solely with the Carholic religion, because it has always been that way with them on contraceptives and not the vast majority. I just feel like when they start tellin a a church how they have run there organizations, then they will start telling me I cant raise my hands when I praise the Lord in my own church because they feel that its wrong. I thought every one else that had jobs in other places were able to get contraceptives, just not St. Josephs medical center, who does not turn anyone away. The other hospital here is not a Faith based hospital and they allow thier employees to get the contraceptives. My daughter works at St Josephs and they donot, its against thier values even though she is not a Catholic, but she knew that going into it. the oppression of contraceptives has been there since the Catholics began. When we start letting them dictate how and what we are to believe then we all will suffer.

        11. I’m not biased towards the Republican Party, but some of the people in it have agendas just as corrupt as the ones of the people they oppose.

        12. Stay above them. Let the refugees from the home for the termanilly
          bewildered do the insulting. They’re much better at it.

        13. I dunno. I do know that when the Secret Service is present, they clear the immediate area anyway. Even if a person moves about too quickly, in their estimation, they close in. But, too much law is the work of pharisees-meaning just a method to look legal while finding loopholes.

        14. but a democrat in the house of representatives (HR) initiated this bill first, because the Republicans are too damned scared to initiate anything during the election year. They (Dem/Rep) are all a bunch of losers…let’s vote them all out and put some fresh blood in there!

        15. Guess you want the Government to be able to silence whomever they deem necessary just because they are in opposition?
          You better read the bill again as it leves it up to the FBI discretion to deem what is or is no appropriate. This is a move one tep closer  to a totalitarian state of rule,

        16. If obuma signed it,it’s his law.He knows it’s un-constitutional,that’s hi goal,to destroy our country.

        17.  only if he was there.  He knew the bill was going to pass and those are the only bills he puts earmarks on so he can get them and vote no and claim that he never votes for earmarks.   Nice work if you can get it.

        18. He is a public proponent of earmarks. Believes in getting money for services his vters pay for. Nothing wrong there. He doesn’t build a brdge to nowhere.

        19. You know nothing about how Congress works. There’s a load of cash and Congress has to decide where it goes and who gets what. Each Congresscritter also has to satisfy the needs of his/her constituency – they are the ones who the money was collected from in the first place. Each Congressperson has a duty to provide for his/her constituency. If money isn’t allocated, the Executive Office gets the leftover. You seriously want whoever is the president to have extra cash to waste on pet projects like inviting the brother hood for afternoon tea?
          Please learn how our government works before making spurious comments.

        20. The flaw in your argument is the so-called “duty to provide for his constituency.” There is no such duty. A Congress”person’s” duty is to represent their constituency in deliberations and voting on bills and other issues that affect the budget and personal lives for ALL taxpayers and recipients of their largesse–not the locals. What is not reserved for the federal government is then reserved for the states. Your argument only expands government, not properly administering it. I don’t send my Congressman to Washington to spend, spend, spend on my behalf.

        21. Your comment might have been true BEFORE the income tax, but now the fed gov steals our money, yes I said STEALS, and it’s up to the Congresscritter to get some of it back to use in the district they represent.

        22. Actually, contrary to my own esteemed (entrenched?) Senator, John McCain… earmarks are how congress is SUPPOSED to work.

          “No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law; and a regular Statement and Account of the Receipts and Expenditures of all public Money shall be published from time to time.”

          This doesn’t just imply, it MEANs that a LAW must appropriate money, laws are made by congress, which means, they do, and SHOULD say, in those laws, where the money should go.

          Otherwise, it’s “here Mr. President,” spend it as you wish.

        23. Ron Paul is opposition to what? Reality, sanity? His vision of American government is proof that the inmates will run the asylum. One could call his administration chaos, but there is not enough organization to warrant the label.

        24.  It was so important to Ron Paul that he “abstained”  on the real vote.  check the record.  3 House members opposed Brown (R) of Ga  Amish (R) of Mi and Ellison (D) of MN.  It pains me to compliment a Democrat but there is Hope if we can get one Patriot to stand for our rights.  This law is so vague and broad that if truly challenged it is in trouble but the Supremos probably will uphold it since it is supported by and originated in the House.

        25. Bye Bye new GOP Congressmen, you just didn’t “get it” about why you were elected, and now your won’t “get it again” speaking of votes.  Go home in shame.

        26. Ron Paul is his own worst emeny. He needs to STOP his addled-headed dismissive chuckles at ideas he finds foolish- when he does this stuff it makes him look demented. If he’d just take himself seriously, held himself more presidentially, respectfully and authoritatively, THEN more of US would.

    1. How much more of this are we going to allow. It is time for “we the people” to stand up and take this country back.  (as far as getting this bozo out, it will never happen.  He has paid toooooo many people off to vote for him.)  We are doomed I’m afraid – because we are afraid -especially now– to speak up.  The way it will be  now is “you will not have a right to speak your mind or opinion — at all without the fear of being arrested  Sounds like definitely we are doomed.  We NEED to get him out for good!

      1.  You are upset because you cannot go into restricted areas in the White House? I don’t think you could do that before the bill was passed either.

        Lighten up.

        1.  Hey moron, did you miss the part where it INCLUDES any area where a Poltician happens to be?
          Must be a liberal with a public skool edjumakashun

        2. Dear Pam Dunn, It has been well documented and proven in clinical studies that those that result to name calling as well as various other forms of debasement suffer from average or below average mentality.

          Use caution in you future posting to better conceal your handicap.

        3.  How about if he is visiting an area that we do not know he/she is in????   Amash is my congressman and at least this time he is absolutely right.   By the way when they shove a automatic weapon up your nose because your representative is paying your neighbor a visit dont come crying to us.

      2. Ssims,
        I respectfully disagree…like all laws that began with “good intentions”, this one was not vetted against constitutional law or the Bill of Rights, therefore, while its spirit today is sound, tomorrow there will be some politician or political group attempting to enforce their point of view without interference…
        There might be another take on this: our founding fathers clearly stated that the people of the United States are the government of the nation; the government was created with delegated, and some irrevocable powers, to carry out the people’s business, which our elected representatives agreed, under the Tenth Amendment, to limit to what was written in the constitution. We are the government, therefore, if our elected officials are interfering in our business, and they have clearly stated and demonstrated their intention to interfere in every way possible with our “business”, then they are in violation of their own law…I demand protection from these people!   

        1.  Curry, you make too much sense.  Too much apathy against us just infuriates us to the point of legal action.   I propose to speak to as many and as often as the opportunity presents itself.   For everyone I suggest that you get a copy of Original Intent by David Barton.  If you don’t know where and why, his book spells it out with the Original Documents to prove it which he has collected himself.  It is so good to see and read the founding fathers own words by their own hand.  Wake up America!!

      3.  People need to STOP being afraid and just speak out! I know I plan on it. I am on FB and allot of my posts go straight to the DHS wall to be investigated. Ask me if I care!

        Stand up for your rights, be patriotic for your country and your rights and get all the communists out of AMERICA, the Land of the FREE and the HOME of the BRAVE.


        1. It would seem to me that this bill would place all those trespassers in Wisconsin during the last year or more, Union Protesters, teachers, etc., in violation of the law and subject to prosecution and/or incarceration.


      4. I am with you 100% on this and a long investigation of OBAMA’S  CREW’S  activities since entering office  and a Long Trial on Court TV that would be more interesting than the O.J Trial was on National Security, Our Codes given away to  our enemies pick a choice there are many of them, the D.O.J. and get rid of  this sickeness  ” POLITICAL CORRECTNESS ” the poison to our society. and regain ” FREEDOM  OF SPEECH FOR ALL”.

      1.  Obama has “tried” to help the people??”

        Baaawaaahaaa haa haa haa haa, what have you been smoking or drinking? Obama is the worst plague that ever hit the United States of America, Him and his greedy wasteful wife Moochelle who hokd big parties every weekend and take taxpayer paid vacations all over the world.
        It is so sad that some are so blind.

        1. Pamela, name one president or first lady that didn’t have a party or vacation in their administration. You wouldn’t find one, because there’s never been one. The only reason you care about this administration having parties and vacations is because Fox News told you to. Don’t act like we’re the sheep here.


    2. Part of the reason is because, while americans are trying to kick all ilegal aliens out of  this country, they failed and  elected an american president tha is not amercan, he is going to turn all americans into “illegal alliens” in the land they were born”
      The “illegal alliens” thin was the smoking screen while he vanishes all liberties.

    3. Gene et al

      Silly guy – BO HUSSEIN is a simply a puppet of the Zionist jews.   He himself has ZERO power. 

    4. We live in a world where ..Good is bad..and Bad is good…. Read Revelations,, it’s time is now people.. 2012 is starting to look like sodom and gomorrah is taking place..with all the weather, tornadoes, floods, earthquakes, people in the white house are promoting corruption, taking away our freedom of speech, division of races,, sex with same sex couples,, the terror of islam spreading through our country and the whole world, wars and rumors of wars…theats of wiping Isreal and America off the map… ( islamic muslims an their jihad chants of “Death to America And Death to Isreal”) The aclu and haters of America have been kicking God out of our beloved country.. Well God has had just about enough…. You may laugh an mock me i dont care ,i pretty much expect it,,and thats all well an fine with me,,,But Mark my words Jesus Christ is coming back,, very soon.. you’ve been warned.. Get your heart right with Christ cause you will be meeting him.. i promise you.. if you dont know Christ ..He’ll say to God the Father ” I know not this person”….and be left behind,, And by the way,, God of heaven and earth does not offer 72 virgins for slaughtering other people,, sorry..

      1. This kind of stuff is part of th world’s descent back to paganism. It’s been this bad before. That doesn’t make it any sadder.

    5. Many people simply want to stay on the gravy train ride but don’t realize what has happened and what it is leading to. My family ran from communism & I heard it all, today we lost part of our free speach, Obama stating and signing into law that we can not be around or “NEAR” Politicians & Please don’t say anything to a politician, because we can get arrested just for being around our new nobility! After all what else would a GoD expect.!!!You all need to wake up and take him out of the United States while were still able.

    6. Cant stand Obama and think he is a cancer to our country…BUT…this bill was supported by BOTH side…democrats and republicans. This tells me they are all singing from the same song book and ALL of them should be thrown out of office. I will not vote any incumbant..REP or DEM.

    1. That’s exactly what I was thinking.  The cuffs will be out and ready for Tea Party assemblies but hands off the OWS crowds.

      1. Where are they going to put them all. I read a book back in the 90’s a little close to what is happening now, and the had camps all around America at each camp was a Hydrogen Bomb. to get rid of the evidence.


      2. Uh, Dusty1, have you been watching the news (real news, not Fox News or CNN)? Hundreds of Occupy Wall Street protestors have been arrested, while only about a dozen Tea Partiers have been arrested at most.

      1. I knew I’d find you here again, Chris P, writing something incoherent.  Trying to decipher much less finding substantive meaning to any of your statements is really a waste of quality space.

  4. And of course any kind of disagreement to a marxist is the highest crime that of not agreeing with the state.   First of all it should be fast tracked to the Supreme Court and thrown out.   Next we all must remember everything this homosexual muslim crack smoker has done.    The over bearing weight will crush him.

  5. It should be noted that only 3 Congressmen voted Against this horrendous bill. Ron Paul, Paul Broun, and John Amish. When we have a complicit congress, they must be voted out along with the usurper. 

    1. I hope you have been watching the Election Rigging that has been taking place in every state so far that has held a primary. If you have, then it must be starting to sink in that getting these pukes out of their seats on the fleecing of America train ride, May soon require more than votes.

    2.  Linda, you are correct that we have a complicit congress.  Otherwise, some of them would have immediately begun an eligibility investigation into Obama before he was ever inaugurated.  But, no, every one of them know he isn’t eligible to be in the Oval Office, and they are just a guilty of treason as he is.  Sick of them all!

    1. If you choose NOT to vote, you are giving OBUMMER four more years.  I don’t know about you, but I cannot take another four years of him and his family.  Too many extravagant VACATIONS, PARTIES paid with OUR tax money.

  6. This is how our president spends his day—stifling dissent—instead of
    dealing with our massive problems which ironically he has made much worse.
    He is just this side of being a dictator.

  7. Try to take our means of protecting ourselves from a corrupt government like yours and you will see the true definition of what you call “Hate”.     By the way, that will be the end of you if you try.    You have no idea what you are going to experience so be careful what you wish for barry, or barack, or whatever your real name is.   

    1. Do we want to turn one whole state into a prison to house all of them?  I don’t think that there is a prison big enough.

  8. I don’t think that anyone can begin to imagine how bad things can become with another four years of Obama.  For one thing, there could easily–not necessarily, but easily–be one or two vacancies in the Supreme Court.  And, of course, Obamacare would not be repealed (as it could be with a Republican in the White House).

  9. The good news is that it ought to put an end to OWS.

    Those who trumpet modern-day “liberalism” really need to stop and ask themselves why it is that all the calls for squelching speech (viz, the Botox Belles v Rush) or restricting access (viz, this bill) or expanding the right of the federal government to imprison US citizens for political reasons (NDAA) or kill them based on charges never brought in a court of law (Holder’s justification for the killing of al-Awlaki) or refuse to clean up the electoral process (DOJ fighting voter ID) are all coming from a “liberal” regime that campaigned on a pledge to curb the purported excesses of the Bush years but in fact has further enshrined and extended those same programs?

    Obama is not a liar, he is a lie.

    1. Traitorous Republicans had to vote for this bill before the Marxist got to sign it.  Stop blaming Obama; we know that rattlesnakes are rattlesnakes and Marxists act like Marxists.  Tea Party Republicans however are not supposed to vote like Marxists, they are supposed to be the opposition.

      Do you not understand that it is the GOP at fault here?

      We will continue to lose what is left of our freedom until we fully acknowledge that the GOP is complicit with the “powers that should not be”.

      Still rooting for Mitt, Newt, or Rick?  Then you are just dumb.

      1. Here-Here!……………..”What I want/feel within my heart and soul”……is to get “We the People” to stand up……to peacefuly and respectfuly…….”at least at first”…. refuse, ignore all of the stupid, illogical….UN – Constitutional laws “they” are putting to us! …..And, yes….there will be arrests, fines……but we have to be strong…unrelenting……I am an American Patriot……I will not stand for this!……And YES, I will Lead by example!! God Bless America!Thank you, Martin 

      2. Republicans invented abolition of slavery, for women’s rights’,end child labor. It’s called 13th Amendment.  Lot more jobs, too, when we got a GOP president. Seems like we have more genuine compassion for all people- your Obama gots us hating rich, white,sucessful people. While acting like he “really cares” about others less fortunate. You ever get a job from a poor man?

        1. I miss America, the Republicans that did those things are a dying breed. The Republicans today are no better than the people they claim to oppose. They talk about limiting government and increasing jobs, but then restrict the rights of women and gays, and then only help the people who never needed it to begin with, while treating the people that do need it like they’re parasites. Their American Dream is just the Soviet Union sugar coated with words like “values” and “tradition.” The Republicans that do care for the nation never win, because they don’t just tell people what they want to hear. They tell the truth, and that isn’t good enough for many people.


        1. goku, Santorum doesn’t care at all about liberty or limiting government. He wants to limit women’s role in the military, bring back Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, and waste the nation’s time by trying to make gay marriage unconstitutional. He also wants to ban contraceptives solely because his religion doesn’t support them (and the government isn’t supposed to make a law regarding religion). The only jobs he really talks about creating are oil related jobs, and that is something many other presidents have talked about doing while campaigning, but never did once they won. How is he good for this nation?

  10. Does this finally put an end to the Occupy loonies and all their protests?  How about all the union bullies?
    Or will obama say democrats activities are exempt from the law?

  11. I thought we beat these people in World War 2.  Whwere is Kate Smith when you need her?  God bless America.  Liberty, no-longer bends over our cradle!!!! 

  12. Sounds more like politicans are becoming scared that their give away policies, low morals and anti-christian way of life is catching up to them. Many of American’s silent majority are speaking out against them. If we don not stop this we will be the fourth Reicht

  13. I wish I was 20 years younger so I could easily become a permanent ex pat!  Australia looks better and better with each passing day!

  14. Per Rahm Emanuel,  never let a crisis go to waste. They use the Giffords incident to slide
    this past our dumb founded Republican majority in the House.
    Boehner must go. TEA Party – we need a challenger to this waste of a congressman in Ohio.
    Go TEA Party !!! Go America !!!   

  15. Heil Obama!  When does Caesar (or Sultan, as muslims call their kings) Hussein Obama officially get his crown?

  16. Not only is the law bad, what about the ones that voted to get it passed?
    Who elected these people and did they expect them to follow Obama and the democrats?
    Find out if your senator voted to pass it and if he/she is up for reelection get the information out there so people will know about their voting record.
    This is grass roots effort folks and the way we can start taking back control.

  17. I better not hear any cheering when the POS president says something his lemmings like as that would disrupt gov’t.  I better not hear any liberal POS’s booing any Republican candidate or any other candidate for that matter if they say something that they don’t like.  And these idiots don’t see the communistic direction this administration is taking us.  Pretty soon we will all be on welfare, except the rich as they will be rich until Obama takes all their money, we will all be living in gov’t housing with lousy healthcare, crappy tasting food, unaffordable energy costs sounds like a great place thanks all you liberal POS’s.

    The Tea Parties better step up and vote like they have never voted before.  We need good, moral, honest, caring, responsible people like that in every aspect of gov’t.

  18. Republicans voted for it too!!!!!

    I’d be more worried about Republicans eliminating women’s rights – which is for real – not SPECULATION.

    1. Chris get a life. You will back anything a ded wants .So did the people of Germany. WE might be next.By the way.Do you own a brown shirt and pants ?????????

  19. Nazi Germany was the prototype for the anti-christ final push against all that is right and godly.  The Constitution is that which restrains and it is in its dying gasps.  Christians will be very repentant when they see that, in thinking they would never suffer the trib, they have allowed righteous judgment to wane and helped usher in the judgment that is the time of Jacob’s trouble – upon us and our children.  Obama will win even if it takes an international crisis (or assasination attempt that nearly kills him) to turn the useful idiots (liberals) rabidly against Christians and Jews.  Jews will be on board at first but at the very end they will see what they have done and will repent and join us.  That’s my story and I’m sticking by it. 

  20. Do ya think this bill is intended to protect Ron Paul? See the following article:

    November 30, 2011Obama Issues Ron Paul “Kill Order” As Russia Prepares For WarBy: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers The Federal Security Service (FSB) is reporting today that the “secret letter” sent to Prime Minister Putin by Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda contains a warning that United States President Barack Obama has issued an executive-level “kill order” against US Congressman Ron Paul over fears this charismatic politician, who many believe could capture the Republican Presidential 2012 nomination, is about to expose to all Americans what can only be described as the largest mass theft in human history.According to this report, Prime Minister Noda first became aware of this “kill order” after a private meeting with Obama at last weeks ASEAN Summit meeting in Indonesia when the American President expressed his“unconstrained joy” over the toppling of the Greek and Italian governments in bloodless coups by EU banksters who installed to run these countries unelected former Goldman Sachs executives.   Not known to many Americans is that the giant global investment firm Goldman Sachs put Obama into office by being its top donor and after winning the Presidency put so many of its former executives into the US government it is known as the “Wall Street Cabinet.”The reason for Goldman Sachs, and other top American and European banksters, putting Obama into office, this report continues, was to loot the Americans taxpayers of an estimated $100 Trillion…nearly $30 Trillion of which went directly into the pockets of international banksters around the world and another $70 Trillion in lost home values, stock portfolios and pensions funds.The main conduit of this massive theft was the US Federal Reserve System which during the 2008 Financial Crisissecretly doled out, without the American peoples knowledge, over $16 Trillion to European banks and companies and another nearly $8 Trillion in “secret loans” to the largest banks in the United States.Causing Obama and his bankster allies to fear Ron Paul, this report continues, is the Congressman’s ability to hold US Congressional hearings on the $8 Trillion in secret loans to the largest banks in American without the public’s knowledge exposing this largest theft in human history and laying bare for all to see the total criminality of their entire elite political, financial and corporate class.Though the US mainstream media has virtually ignored Ron Paul’s candidacy the American people themselves appear to have broken through this deliberate government ordered blackout of his Presidential run as evidenced by his rise in the polls in the first campaign States of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, which should he win them all would assure him the Republican nomination.The fears Ron Paul is causing among Americas elite classes appear to be justified as he recently likened the US Federal Reserve System to “drug addiction” warning that the deception it has foisted upon the public will lead to the destruction of the United States.Ron Paul further warned the American people this year that their nation was becoming a “police state,” called for the impeachment of Obama for ordering the assassination of an American citizen without charges or trial, and stated that Obama had violated the War Powers Act over his actions against Libya.Ron Paul’s fears of a police state America being ruled by a dictatorial tyrant were confirmed yesterday when the US Senate, in a 61-37 vote gave, for the first time in history, the power to the US Military to hold citizens without charges or trial indefinitely by passing a bill that was written in secret and never openly debated.So frightening is this new law that the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) in the days prior to its passing warned, “The Senate is going to vote on whether Congress will give this president—and every future president — the power to order the military to pick up and imprison without charge or trial civilians anywhere in the world. The power is so broad that even U.S. citizens could be swept up by the military and the military could be used far from any battlefield, even within the United States itself.”Most ominous in this FSB report is its stating that the “assassination regime” ordered against Ron Paul by Obama may already be underway as one of the USforeclosure fraud whistleblowers subpoenaed by Ron Paul to testify before the US Congress named Tracey Lawrence was found “suicided” yesterday in Las Vegas.The destruction of anyone found opposing the Obama regime and its bankster backers was, also, brought into sharp relief this week by the smearing by mental illness allegations of one of America’s top heroes US Marine Sergeant Dakota Meyer, who in September received the Congressional Medal of Honor from Obama (who called him one of the most “down-to-earth guys that you will ever meet”) for saving the lives of 36 of his comrades, but after he alerted the press that his employer defense contractor BAE Systems was selling high-tech sniper rifles to Pakistan that are being used to kill America Soldiers was labeled as a “drunk and mentally ill.”So concerned has the Kremlin become about the growing American fascist police state it caused General Nikolai Makarov, Russia’s top military commander, to issue a warning to the West last week that the Motherland was fully prepared for a nuclear World War III and which prompted the Obama regime to state that it would immediately cease observing their arms treaty with Russia.To if the American people will be able to rally around Ron Paul before he is assassinated by the Obama regime it is not in our knowing, other than to note that in a country where every public demonstration – however peaceful and orderly it might be – is ordered by their authorities to be treated as the equivalent of a prison riot, where the former police chief of Seattle blamed the militarization of local US police forces on Obama’s Homeland Security Department, and where the media is described as being nothing more than a “lapdog” for Obama and his bankster allies, the likelihood of these people escaping the worst horrors to come do, indeed, seem inescapable. November 30, 2011 © EU and US all rights reserved.

  21. This is bad. Very bad. We need to find out exactly who dreamed this up and find out how this nit of nonsense made it to the house floor for an up or down vote. Those people have got to get pink slips in November.

  22. I thought it was reasonable considering the rage that Fox Noise has  stirred up and the fact that we allow every mentally ill person to have a gun.

    1. Your esteemed AG & his DOJ have walked more than 1,800 assault rifles across international borders, which has resulted in the murder of two Border Patrol agents and hundreds of Mexican citizens. But now the rights of American citizens’, provided by the 2nd Amendment, are criticized and  villified by liberals who would be happy if we were all disarmed so we could no longer protect ourselves. And by-the-way, Fox News is the ONLY fair & balance news station around.  It’s the biased, Obama lame-stream state media outlets like MSNBC, NBC, CBS, CSNBC, ABC, & CNN are the ones who stir up rage and go along with Obama’s lies and class warfare.

  23. In other words the bill is truly not enforcable because it is unconstitutional. The first amendment to the constitution  is very specific CONGRESS SHALL MAKE NO LAWS RESPECTING AN ESTABLISHMENT OF RELIGION, OR PROHIBITING THE FREE EXCERCISE THEREOF; OR ABRIDGING THE FREEDOM OF SPEACH, OR THE PRES: OR THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO PEACABLY ASSEMBLE, AND PETITION THE GOVERNMENT FOR REDRESS OF GRIEVANCES. Consequently H.R. 347 is unenforceable.

  24. Da MASTER Commie is now KING!  KING B.O. Will tell you when to talk,How to talk and what to Think! God help you if you think without permission!    Knock Knock! Who’s there? The KING’s UNION THUGS! WE hear you been thinking without OUR PERMISSION! !@#$%^&*. When you get out of the hospital come by the office ,let’s get you signed up for party membership. YOU DO WANT PARTY MEMBERSHIP DON’T YOU! 

  25. If the Republican’s of this nation don’t rise up and  start an uprising about this we are certainly doomed!  This is a Free Nation  not Obama Nation!    GOD HELP US NOW!

  26. “…obstructs or impedes ingress or egress to or from any restricted building or grounds…”

    So let’s see, we have a Tea Party rally in DC on the 24th and an Americans for Prosperity rally in DC at the Senate Park on the 27th.  Will we now be impeding anyone?

  27. Question:
    Does this new law create an 1st Amendment Nullification Zone around any and all Government persons? Does this zone travel with the official even when at an unofficial event? What is the extent of the Nullification Zone Can a Citizen be across the Street shouting Questions or more flamboyant comments and risk Arrest?

  28. “Obama signs bill …” Did Obama write the bill? And did I read that the mighty lions in the House passed the bill? I thought so. It’s funny how big, bad Obama is the problem again, and no one wants to talk about the treasonous, lying, gutless, republicans in the House (and in the Senate) that promised to: repeal Obamacare; defund Obamacare; cut a measly $100 billion from spending; and of course, to “make government smaller.” The way I see it, they have FAILED on all counts. But, what do I know, oh why don’t we give them another chance. Not me.

  29. BEFORE they stop my free speech, I’ll stop their breathing and I don’t like being threatened, especially by low-life idiot libturds wanting to do harm!!!!

  30. If this is a typical  right wing posting, I would agree with that statement by just reading most of the postings made by your readers,

  31. To bad, I  wont be able to make my counterpoints and state facts on this posting anymore, no more free speech, Good by.

  32. This is not freedom and this is unconstitutional and illegal.  People who make laws like this are not Americans period…on any level.

  33. This is just the continuation of the liberals taking away our freedom of speech very slowly so as not to attract too much attention.  I can bet that most Americans have no idea what is really going on and how much we have already lost in our freedoms.  It’s going to be interesting to see, when the real election starts between the GOP and Obama and the Tea Party comes out again, what will happen and who will get arrested or how far all this will go.  Hold on to your seats, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.  

    1. Paulam..that is so sadly true. I have read many comment’s defending obama’s claim as a good christian. Yet do they not know that Obama canceled the national day of prayer? That under his adminstration the military can not say the name of Jesus in prayer nor can crosses be placed(i don’t know if that mean’s military cementaries?) Obama makes staement’s : they cling to their bibles and guns) He demand’s the name Jesus be removed from behind podium’s when he speak’s, he protect’s the rt’s of muslims yet not the christian faith, He openly abhor’s anything christian..loves anything indecent and unchristian. He mocks the word of God and the old testment ppl..the apple of God’s eye..the jewish people. Aparently obama told palestianes for them to wait until after he is re elected before he acts against Isarel. If obama does not repent he will someday stand before a Holy God  and i shudder. Your so right..those who support obama are blind and ignorant and if he is relected they will be stunned when he turns against them.

  34. You want to see OUR future! Watch the movie 1984! This is MR.B.O’s hope for Change,it’s the change he hopes for WE the PEOPLE!

  35. If I remember right, only 3 members of the House voted against this, one of them was Keith Ellison(D-MN) who is the only Muslim in congress.

  36. If we gather in front of the Capitol Building or the White House, do you suppose that Obama will stage a Tienanmen Square incident?

  37. It would appear that shouting “Obama’s a Commie ” at an Obama rally would get you arrested.  Not only that, you would be imprisoned if you had some deadly weapon on you, like nail clippers or, perhaps, a pen with a metal shaft. 

    If there were somewhere else to go, in this world, I would go there.  But there simply isn’t.

    When will it become illegal to write, “I’m keeping my powder dry, boys!”?  At the risk of imprisonment, I will flatly declare … and for the record … that I will not live in a Marxist state.  Not without making use of my considerable military skills.

    Will there be a second shot “heard round the world?”

  38. This could be taken to ANY court of LAW – What happens with lawyers questioning a witness on a given witness stand and one of them may get upset -It can be taken as an insult. 

  39. Obama and his liberal Democrat Socialists can kiss my ***. I did not fight in Viet Nam and lose friends to let this happen. If he thinks he will get away with this – he is  WRONG !!!  No Socialist Muslim is going to control this country or its people.

  40. why do you think that coward is cutting our milatary,so the U.N troops can be brought in to kill the amircans that rise up against this crap!!wake up America

  41. If enough of us do against this, they don’t have the resources to stop us unless they resort to the loaders in Soylent Green.
    We have the numbers to put down any of this crap they put on paper.

  42. Let’s see if they arrest thhe UNIONS and OWS while they disrupt &  barred politicians from getting ino their State and Local Government offices.  They both OCCUPY areas & SHOUT DOWN everyone.  $100.00 says that they will use Tea Party as example splashing it all over MSM while overlooking unions and ows persons!

  43. Can anyone say “THIN SKINNED”????!!!! 

    Not only does Obama NOT have any balls, he couples that with being thin skinned.   Is that what he considers being “transparent”?   

    Democrats call Conservative voters stupid but we can see right through Obama and his lies.  On the other hand, those eros loving Obama freaks; those ignorant Liberals can’t see their way out of a wet paper bag.  Oh, that’s right…I forgot about Sandra Fluck.  She’s become their wet paper bag!

  44. I’m amazed the MSM isn’t screaming to the rooftops over this one, because it can pretty much stop protesters of any stripe, even left wingers.

  45. Rejoice and be glad, but only if you are saved by the grace of God in Jesus Christ.
    “All these things must come to pass”. (Matthew 24). And all of. Daniel, Ezekiel, Joel, and 2 Thessalonians 2.

  46. None of this is a surprise to me, this man told us exactly what his plans were for this country before he ever took the White House in 2008. Now we are reaping the rewards for the Blind Americans who chose to vote for a man whom we KNEW NOTHING ABOUT. The more I researched this man and his “friends” the more I begged people to listen and do their homework, but I’m sorry to say most chose to go with the “cool crowd” and vote for,” The One They Had Been Waiting For.” Now our men and women who Defend our country are paying for those votes, our children and our grandchildren will pay for those votes, and IF AMERICA DOES NOT WAKE UP BEFORE NOV.2012 THERE WILL BE NOTHING LEFT FOR OUR FUTURE YOUNG AMERICANS. We must not only take the White House but we must also take back the Senate and keep the Congress, every Czar must go, and TERM LIMTS must become Law for the Senate. The American people MUST MAKE THEIR VOICES HEARD, NOT ONLY NOW, BUT WE MUST NEVER ALLOW OUR VOICES TO BE SILENCED EVER AGAIN. The only way we stop that from happening is we must remember to think for ourselves, and if there is ever any doubt all we have to do is look back to this time to remember what happened when we allowed the government TO HAVE TO MUCH CONTROL IN OUR LIVES BY TURNING OUR HEADS AND BELIEVING THOSE WHO TOOK AN OATH TO PROTECT AND SERVE.

  47. So, if we go to a Townhall meeting  and ask a question of our Rep or challenge him/her in any way we can be  determined disruptive, hauled off, and booked.   Of all the creepy things this government has done as of late, this is the most frightening.  We now have no right to express our wishes and will to the person that we elected to represent our wishes and will.  They forget their place.  They work for us. 
    They must be aware that they are out of control and need to be protected from us.  Why do you think that is?

    1. Unfortunately, most of these elected officials do not believe they work for us. They have obviously  swallowed hook, line and sinker that they ARE above the laws.  In the hands of even an honest politician, this is dangerous, but in the hands of this president and his thugs……… is the destruction of our 1st Amendment rights.
      May God have mercy on us all.

  48. All politicians are to blame if truth be told , but the Dictator in the White House signed the Bill . He could have Vetoed it saying that it was un American to limit our right to freedom of speech . It would seem that it is alright for Politicians to speak and lie to us , but we can not challange them on it ? And if we are at the local diner eating and some politician is glad handing  and drumming up voters and someone passes gas he could be arrested ? Basically , that’s what this bill is saying .

    Since his election , Barry Obama has been working tirelessly at one goal , destroy America anyway possible . His openly hostile and critical attacks on our Constitution in the press, and his circumvention of same when ever he feels like it shows his true nature . Now this infringement on our Constitutional rights , another attack on the Constitution as he seeks to turn us to Communism . The man is a disgrace to the office he holds and should be impeached , voted out , arrested what ever . In his term in office , I can say Donald Duck could have done a better job running this Country .

  49. You’re DREAMING if you believe OBAMA and his backers are planning on winning the next election….there will be NO ELECTION in November, 2012.  He’s planning on setting up Martial Order over some fiasco generated by the left, and then NEVER ALLOWING MARTIAL ORDER to end….making him the “official” FORIEGN BORN DICTATOR of the United States of  America!!   WARNING AMERICAN PATRIOTS, THE END IS ONLY DAYS AWAY…..the thing I love most about it, is that ALL the STUPID liberal, progressive, democrats will be the first ones this MUSLIM dicator KILLS, right after he KILLS all the Christians and Jews…..YOU FOOLS.   At least Christians and Jews will end up in Heaven, and we’ll be back when Jesus comes back to destroy those who hate Him and those belonging to Him.   As for ISLAMIST, you’re going to actually meet Jesus Christ and have a chance to call him a LIAR right to his face as he throws you into HELL where your idiot prophet is today.

    1. thats ok,because my middle name is{ marshall} and we the people are the govt/law.we the people by me.have been educated,aware,alerted,since this ineligible president has been elected by fraud,so we will be voting if possible or kicking if necessary all threats against the constitution and the bill of rights.and all politicians that allow this ineligible president to remain in his office nation under god with liberty and justice for all american citizens.we have bible in one hand and protection in the other hand.god bless all american veterans and all american citizens.semper fi 

  50. To all the folks who discount the significant threat in a bill such as HR-347:

    If it were as benign as you make it out to be then ask yourself  “WHY ARE OUR POLITICANS TAKING THE TIME TO DRAFT AND PASS IT?” when laws already accommodate the ADVERTISED INTENT. 

    Naive is no way to go through life.

  51. That’s the last straw… or should, but it won’t. The tyranny must be stopped and by God if it takes a good ole revolution to stop it than let the chips fall where they may! Just how mush more tyranny are yoy’s going to accept from this Muslim-Marxist; eveidentally, he doesn’t plan on stopping until your all herded like the sheeple that you’ve become. 1776…1776…1776…1776…. …

    1. agreed dave,we the people must make a legal plan to protest/march.we the people talking and blogging is good to a point,but now its time to take back our once great country.we the people its time.god bless all american veterans and all american citizens.semper fi 

  52. I love our country. I don’t like what is being done to it, but I stand by it. Just because I want to stand up against this Marxism, I can be labeled a terrorist, by you know who? This shows why we must rally our base and make our voices heard in November.

  53. If I understand the language correctly this bill has just made criminals of those who voice their frustration at town hall meetings, as we saw in the last election cycle.  If that is true then there will certainly be some unhappy campers when they find what their representatives have done to them.

  54. You folks are nuts as usual. You would allow some crazy to carry a gun into a public meeting, but the illegal intrusion into a private office of one of our elected officials should be carte blanche. Again you folks  attempt to build phony cases of constitution abuse. You worship the 2nd Amendment as the heart and soul of America rights, but you all know there have been laws against machine guns for decades and the courts of all makeups have upheld those laws. You can’t own bazookas,  and any other dangerous military weapons.

    The Federal and State governments have a distinct right to protect their public officials from domestic terrorists. On these sites there are constant references to lynching, shooting, taking out, arresting eliminating, hanging and other illegal threats towards the president and his family. I am quite thankful that these sites are monitored quite carefully and the eventually all of you who persist in your sick bombast are interviewed and possibly indicted. Your freedom of speech does not allow yelling fire in a theater or threatening anyone, no less a president. Good luck with your inane concerns, but remember that you are the few, old, and the fearful. Your time has passed and eventually you folks will be on Medicaid and Medicare and be quite happy that someone provided for your well-being. For sure it won’t be Paul, Santorum and the rest of that motley crew.

    1. no we are young,well informed,and we the people are the government,not the politicians,they are in office to do we the peoples bidding,and ovomit isn,t a president,as both both parents are not natural born citizens,his mother was,but his father was born in kenyan,making him ineligible to be president.and we the people have the right to rid the government if there is tyranny,and with ovmit/lucifer/ is tyranny,and if anybody is a threat to this great country,it is the illegal squatter in the wh.when in the coarse of human events,you should know the rest of it.we the people are the government/the consitution the bill of rights.god bless all american veterans and all american citizens.semper fi

      1. You have a right to go to a ballot box and that is it! If you are young maybe you missed that lecture. You are completely wrong on his right to be president. You and no one else can prove that he wasn’t born in America of an American, US citizen. Therefore, if you are literate enough to read the Constitution he is an American born citizen. He’ll be on the ballot in all 50 states while you still have your head up you know where. Find other issues clown and grow up.

    2. I wondered when you were going to stick your head out of the swamp and rant your Marxist diatribe.   It is clear what you advocate!

      1.  Is that the limit of your small brain? everyone who disagrees with you is a Marxist. Sounds like you are a NAZI not an American. I have a right to my opinion as much as a dumb idiot like yourself.

    3. You may not mind you freedom being taken away from you and your family, however as I see more and more intrusion into my life by the government I will not stand by and be silent. You can make you voice be heard without making threats, our Constitution has be TRAMPLED ON repeatedly and SHAME ON EVERY AMERICAN WHO STANDS BY ALLOWS OUR FREEDOM TO BE TAKEN AWAY AND REMAINS SILIENT. We have men and women who are fighting, dying, leaving body parts behind in lands that Hate us, and are being forever changed…………..and why? Because they Love their country and they STAND BY THE OATH THEY TOOK UPON ENTERING THE MILITARY (UNLIKE THOSE WHO ARE ACTIVELY TAKING AWAY THE FREEDOM THESE BRAVE PEOPLE ARE FIGHTING FOR.) It will be those who will refuse to see the truth who will be the DETRIMENT TO THIS COUNTRY.

      1.  Name one intrusion! Paying taxes? They are lower than ever on the Federal level? Gun laws? They haven’t changed! You mean you can’t spit on the sidewalk. This crud about lost freedoms is just that, crud. You have all you freedoms and more. Chicken Little the sky is not falling!

    4. All you liberal are so quick to call out anyone on the right for protesting, demonstrating, and saying hateful things toward Obama or the Democrats, but you live by a double standard.  When President Bush was in office, how many death threats did he receive from Bush-haters?  How many protests and demonstrations, by left-wing loons occurred that  resulted in violence, injuries and property loss?  How many filthy-mouthed liberals, like Bill Mahr, Michael Moore, David Letterman and too many more to mention, used and still use demeaning, hateful, insulting, filthy language toward Sarah Palin, her family and every other conservative?  Why is there is never an outcry from the left when those things happen?  It’s because you all drink the same Kool Aid and see anyone who disagrees with you or has a different point  of view as open game for ridicule, intimidation, slander or whatever other vile things you can come up with to hit your opposition with.  So get off your liberal high horse and look in the mirror before making your  accusatory and bombastic remarks toward conservatives.  We’re sick and tired of the liberal double standard of adhering to the old “Don’t do as I do, do as I say,” BS!

    5. All you liberal are so quick to call out anyone on the right for protesting, demonstrating, and saying hateful things toward Obama or the Democrats, but you live by a double standard.  When President Bush was in office, how many death threats did he receive from Bush-haters?  How many protests and demonstrations, by left-wing loons occurred that  resulted in violence, injuries and property loss?  How many filthy-mouthed liberals, like Bill Mahr, Michael Moore, David Letterman and too many more to mention, used and still use demeaning, hateful, insulting, filthy language toward Sarah Palin, her family and every other conservative?  Why is there is never an outcry from the left when those things happen?  It’s because you all drink the same Kool Aid and see anyone who disagrees with you or has a different point  of view as open game for ridicule, intimidation, slander or whatever other vile things you can come up with to hit your opposition with.  So get off your liberal high horse and look in the mirror before making your  accusatory and bombastic remarks toward conservatives.  We’re sick and tired of the liberal double standard of adhering to the old “Don’t do as I do, do as I say,” BS!

      1.  You clowns are supposed to be value-based and family oriented. if the Democrats offend you with their humor, parody and satire, so be it. Nothing prevents you from expressing yourself in that same way. The hate here makes there comments sound like  a school boy taunts. I am a centrist Democrat and I do not like Mahar’s language, but it pales in comparison to Rush Limbaugh.  If Sarah Palin, who was born after her parents were married, along with her daughter’s birth after her marriage and her daughter’s teenage pregnancy are family values, then the word means nothing. By the way McCain, Gingrich and Limbaugh have about 10-12 marriages amongst them. So family values?

        There is free speech and free speech. Seditious threats, which are rife here, are not protected speech. As to Limbaugh, he’s a fat pill=popping hypocrite who is an embarrassment to even the GOP troglodytes.  The vast amount of Democrats are not Commie-Marxists despite all of the idiotic accusations published here daily. Every time one disagrees on gun control, recess appointments, the budget, gay rights, contraception, choice, Medicare, etc, they are accused of being Marxist-Muslim commies. No one believes that claptrap. Go out in the street, get a soap box and speak out against all you hate. You’ll get a tomato or two in your face. Most Democrats, Republicans and Independents don’t buy into the specious tripe fulminated here, minute by minute.

    6. I hope you keep your mouth shut when the government becomes conservative and doesn’t want to hear your rants.  Good Luck with that.

    7. what is so sad about you is that you are the typical Useful Idiot! You are an Obot, you believe what you are told, you speak what you are told to speak, and you attack without any thought of your own.

  55. And yet another Obama boot comes down on our Constitution. Ironically, almost everything that this administration has passed will ultimately be overturned on constitutional grounds. Four torturous years wasted by progressive reformists who forgot that they would have to amend the Constitution before any of their crap would stand. Alas

    1. “Ironically, almost everything that this administration has passed will ultimately be overturned on constitutional grounds.”

      I have serious doubts about that. The U.S. Supreme Court won’t even bother to hear any cases concerning the Fraud-in-Chief’s eligibility, so why would they bother themselves with overturning any of his unconstitutional legislation that he signed.

  56. No, I don’t like or trust Obama even a little, but this bill was passed with only 3 dissenting votes in the House and one in the Senate.  The only guys who voted against this bill in the House were Paul Brown R-GA, Ronald Paul R-TX,  and Justin Amish R-MI.  Are these guys on OUR payroll or are they working for themselves? 
    I believe that everyone should write his Representative and ask why he/she voted yes on HR-347.

  57. Er, “scrape” the Statue of Liberty? Don’t you mean “scrap”? Sorry, but it drives me nuts when people who want to make an intelligent point against the left can’t even spell. But whatever.

    The article made an excellent point. By using general language to define a specific law, those in power are ensuring their ability to control all outcomes. Obama himself speaks this way, and because on the surface it sounds reasonable, too few people actually think about what’s behind his platitudes.

    Ever get stopped by someone trying to get signatures on petition? The front of the petition is a brief overview of whatever bill will be introduced once the requisite number of signatures are obtained on the petition. This overview always and conveniently glosses over the underlying intent of the proposed bill. So I always ask the person to show me the full wording, which is usually printed on a separate page. Invariably, the actual wording proves to have the complete opposite meaning of the deceptive, brief description. Once or twice, when I pointed out this discrepancy to the person canvassing for signatures, he or she became outraged and brought the petition back to wherever it came from; one person was so upset, he actually took the petition with all the signatures, threw it in the nearest trash can, and went home. I don’t know if his actions were legal or not, but apparently he didn’t care – he simply couldn’t believe he’d been expected to lie to people like that. It’s the same with these bills our traitorous president’s administration is pushing through and that he’s signing.

    We so have to get him out of the White House!

  58. JUST FACTION ? “Under this president, however, the FOIA process has been corrupted. During his first year in office, the Department of Homeland Security began forcing its career employees to send major FOIA requests to the senior political staff of Secretary Janet Napolitano for review and approval. Obama political appointees even demanded to know the political affiliation of certain FOIA requestors, according to The Associated Press.When a House Oversight panel began investigating this scandal, DHS officials repeatedly obstructed it, seeking to “avoid both the shame of public scrutiny and potential criminal prosecution.” According to the subsequent House report, DHS political appointees tampered with witnesses, attempted to misappropriate committee documents and retaliated against whistleblowers.Holder has instead treated the congressional investigation with contempt. His sworn testimony appears to be contradicted by Justice Department memos. He won’t cooperate fully with congressional subpoenas, what does that say about his attitude toward government transparency?”Regulatory “czar” Cass Sunstein’s and Information czar” Vivek Kundra audacious campaign to have government agents surreptitiously go online to “undermine” viewpoints with which they disagree”

  59. We headed for ANOTHER American revolution(and this time not with the English).All laws that don’t follow OUR CONSTITUTION are VOID ! Throw ALL the bum’s out and start over ! Buy your gun’s and ammo now,before O-BOZO,Hillary,and Holder takes our LAST MEAN’S OF PROTECTION that our forefather’s were well aware of the consequences of a government out of control !   

  60. And some of you want to re-elect this guy.   Do you have to have a rope around your kneck to see what is going on?  He has taken your money, your freedom, your country, and now he is taking your constitutional rights one at a time.  Time to take the blinders off and stop being one of his Willing Victims.  Clean House in 2012.

  61. This sounds oddly familiar:

    Nazi Germany (1933-1945)
    Main article: Censorship in Nazi Germany
    Censorship in Nazi Germany was implemented by the Minister of Propaganda, Joseph Goebbels. All media — literature, music, newspapers, and public events—were censored. Attempts were also made to censor private communications, such as mail and even private conversation, with mixed results.
    The aim of censorship under the Nazi regime was simple: to reinforce Nazi power and to suppress opposing viewpoints and information. Punishments ranged from banning of presentation and publishing of works to deportation, imprisonment, or even execution in a concentration camp.
    Hitler outlined his theory of propaganda and censorship in Mein Kampf:
    “The chief function of propaganda is to convince the masses, whose slowness of understanding needs to be given time so they may absorb information; and only constant repetition will finally succeed in imprinting an idea on their mind.”

  62. The government has become so corrupt that they fear the common citizen.   If that is the case then there is a
    major problem with the politicians and they need to be removed at the next electio cycle.   Obamanation
    is corrupt and as we have seen incompentent to lead the nation.   Three years plus and still no budget yet
    our national debt has increased more rapidly than at any other time in the History of our nation.    Eliminate
    the blot on the American nation and removd the cretin at the next election.

  63. Just one more step toward changing from ‘USA’ to ”USSA” UNITED SOCIALIST STATES OF AMERICA”.Wake up people!!! Thank you to all the scum who claim to be republicans in this socialist congress!!!!

  64. Dream on HUSSEIN! If you show up anywhere near my town and give a speech, me and many of my friend’s WILL show up and not only disrupt your worthless speech, but we will shout and boo you until you have to just stop speaking and leave the stage! Oh yeah barak, we will tell you what you DESERVE to hear and show you the utter disrespect you so deserve, terrorist!


  66. No, Gene, he needs to be arrested for impersonating a federal official. He can never be president, even if he WERE born here, and he was not by his own admission in writing. The  communist Democrats will register cartoon charachters, and dead people to vote him in by a landslide, this time. They did it last time, but it was unneccesary. Enough people were hoodwinked by his Hitler style speaking to make it unneeded. THIS time, though, people have seen his evil agenda, and KNOW he is not the good guy he pretends to be, nor is he proAmerican, or working in their best interests. Au contrare.

  67. Just today a friend of mine who is an elementary school teacher told me that she watched members of the PTA placing a life-sized cardboard cutout of OBAMA in the lobby entrance to the school… WTF is he doing there?!?!?!

  68. Just one more of our freedoms being taken away. The person who had a flag up on his establishment is now being told to take it down because all of a sudden it is a problem? Another freedom taken away! Being forced to pay for someone’s birth control whether we believe in birth control or not, our freedom to worship God as we want being taken away. Yet someone can put up a flag with obummers’s mug in place of the stars on the American flag is okay. What the hell is this world coming to? It’s going down the crapper and fast! Get this arrogant dummicrat donkey out of office before it is way too late!


  70. I wonder if they’ll enforce that law against the union thugs that disrupted the State legislature proceedings in Wisconsin last year, or made it necessary for legislators who voted for the bill making union membership voluntary to be escorted out by the State police for their protection.

    (Crickets chirping)

  71. Here we go again taking away our rights and letting this trash stay in office is beyond the understanding of our constitution and rights.  If we can’t get congress to take this bum out of office then we should be able to vote his removal from office….If we don’t before the election he will have taken all our freedom this is the biggest piece of trash I have ever seen in office even carter wasn’t this bad but bad enough along with a few others that should have been impeached.  I want to see Obama Reid and Pelosi be punished for fraud and treason NOW>>>>>

  72. Top 10 Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Attacks on Women’s Rights
    By Alison McQuade on 03/14/2012 @ 10:50 AM
    Tags: Why Women
    Right Wing decided it wanted to play Monday Morning Quarterback with my
    lady parts this year. It seems like an odd choice for a recreational
    activity, especially since there’s no legislative or medical reason to
    suddenly introduce radically restrictive and dangerous legislation on
    women’s health and bodies. Maybe someone should introduce them to
    Pinterest instead.
    Here are our Top 10 Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Attacks on Women’s Rights (just in the last 6 months!)
    The Blunt Amendment. Reasonable religious exemptions weren’t enough for Roy Blunt. This amendment
    would have allowed your employer – not your doctor – to decide what
    kind of health care you could get based on his or her own personal moral
    or religious convictions.The All-Male Birth Control Panel, or the Man Panel. Congressman Darrell Issa convened a panel to discuss the coverage of birth control – but refused to include any women.Susan G. Komen Foundation defunds Planned Parenthood. Komen opted to cut off funding to the largest provider of reproductive health services in the US because of their new VP’s objection to a mere 3% of their activities.Rush Limbaugh Calls Sandra Fluke a Prostitute and a Slut. After Sandra Fluke stood up for women everywhere, Rush Limbaugh took to the airwaves and called her a prostitute and a slut
    for speaking out in favor of birth control coverage. He also said she
    should have to put videos of her having sex online to compensate the
    taxpayers who “are going to pay for your contraceptives.” Classy.Forced Trans-Vaginal Ultrasounds.
    Republican legislators in Virginia invited the commonwealth into the
    exam room when they proposed a bill that would require women seeking
    abortions to undergo an invasive, medically-unnecessary vaginal probe before their procedure.Texas defunds Planned Parenthood. Under Governor Rick Perry, the state of Texas banned funding to Planned Parenthood because it provides abortion services. In the end, though, this fight has only served to hurt low-income women looking for breast cancer screenings, birth control and pap smears.Women in the Military Should “Expect” to be Raped.
    Responding to a 64% increase in the reports of rape and violent sexual
    assaults in the military, Fox News pundit Liz Trotta responds, “What did they expect?” She goes on to say that there is a bureaucracy of people to support these women who are being “raped too much.”Foster Friess Suggests Women Put Aspirin Between Their Knees. Rick Santorum supporter, Foster Friess, reminisced about back in his day when ladies put aspirin between their knees for birth control. Back in his day, people also died of polio.Santorum wants to deny birth control coverage because he thinks it’s available and affordable. Despite the fact that most forms of birth control still require a prescription and 1 in 3 women have reported struggling to afford birth control. Santorum feels there is no barrier to access, so it shouldn’t be covered by insurance.Mitt Romney doesn’t understand a woman’s reproductive system.
    Romney has publicly supported “personhood amendments,” which would ban
    abortion by declaring life begins at conception. When asked about how
    this affects birth control, Romney seemed to be completely unaware that hormonal forms of birth control stop implantation, not conception and would be banned under any personhood amendment.

    1. Once again here is a person posting Lies, at no time has the Republican party attacked women or their rights. What the obama team and the democrats have done is once again Stomp all over our Constitution, and our Freedom of Religon. How dare they try to Force anyone to provide Free Birth Control, and now they have decided to place $1.00 for abortions in the obamacare bill. All of these lies have been put out there to TAKE THE ATTENTION OFF OF THE CRAPPY JOB obama and the democrats have done over the past 3 years. However this did not and will not work, not all of the American people are ready to just close their eyes, and play ” Follow the leader” and let things fall where they may. Novemeber 2012 is Fast Approaching!!!!!!!!!!! Wake up America, TRUE CHANGE IS COMING!!!! CHANGE BACK TO OUR FUNDAMENTAL LAWS and RESPECT OF OUR CONSTITUTION and THE MEN and WOMEN WHO FIGHT TO PROTECT IT!!!

      1.  You probably never heard of the old saying:  “You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him/her drink.”  You ignore facts just like the horse ignores water.  Someday when you are thirsty perhaps you will discover the facts and hopefully, understand them.

  73. Article has a typo: scrap not scrape the Statue of Liberty. I don’t understand what this means. How would this have protected Gabrielle Giffords? Government doing its job would have protected her.

  74. According to Homeland security and the kangaroo administration myself and my family have been listed as potential terrorists and members and probably a bunch of hate groups but in this environment we look upon that as a badge of honor.

    Let me explain: First and probably most troubling is that we disagree with almost everything Dirty Diaper Head Obama has done during his administration as it appears that you disagree with him your criminal or a racist.
    Second we believe in the Constitution and what it stands for.
    Third we believe in America is the greatest nation on earth and that we owe no one in the world an apology just because we strive to excel.
    Fourth going back to my great great Grandfather we’ve had a presence in the military. We have had family members that have put their life on the line for America in every major conflict since the Spanish-American war.
    Fifth I myself am a life member and the NRA and have been since I was eight years old, By Choice. We have also been active in Boy Scouts and other civic organizations. 
    Sixth we are Christians not Bible thumping fire and brimstone type but still Christians believing in the base values of the Christian faith.
    Seven we are also members of the tea party.

    So I guess we are potential domestic terrorists, and members of numerous hate groups, and for the most part proud of it. In a Diaper Head Doesn’t like It when you go back and climb under whatever rock you came out from under. He is the biggest disgrace that this country has ever had and I just hope and pray that we can climb out of the whole and the raw sewerage that he had dropped America into.

  75. We are all looking for a Moses or a Washington to sound the horn. Call to action,  on only one issue, I will be there.   To riot, insurrect,etc. The Nut shenal  (National) Heath deal? We will be forced to pay for killing babies through state exchanges. Honest Injun.


  77. If the politicians did the correct things and not make life hard on us, then they would not be worry what the people thought. So many laws and regulation on the books, how can anyone keep up what is going on?

  78. All professional politicians are at fault.  Our founding fathers believed in the citizen politician.  They served their country by serving a term or two in Washington and then returned to their private occupation.  I don’t know when politics became a career, but that was when our nation started to go downhill.

  79. so what he is saying you can’t go where anyone from congress is speaking and say anything against what they are saying .,so in other words it’s there way or jail .

  80. Our government is now run by fascist pigs. The next step is  the jack booted Nazi thugs will start kicking our doors in?

  81. Wow! Pair this with the right of concealed carry! Talk about a world of (unintentional and otherwise innocent) hurt! There you sit, eating your normal lunch in the small town, non-alcohol-serving  diner where you’ve eaten lunch every working day for thirty years, side by side with the local circuit judge and sheriff, with your little .380 in your back pocket…and in walks the advance guard of the POTUS. You can hope they don’t arrest the Sheriff, huh? In my town, the judge, too.

  82. You cant say we have a US Constitution anymore. Soon you will be under UN Agenda 21 in operation NOW and Shar’a law on its way. NO Presidential Candidate will address this but Paul. If you are not convinced to vote for him you deserve to sink with the titanic and lose all your rights as DC defiles and does not defend our Constitution!

  83. We the people demand a law be passed that ALL politicians must follow ALL laws they place on the people. You politicians were elected by the people and you have no right to establish laws that you do not abide by. You politicians swore to uphold the Constitution, the way it was written, not how you are rewriting it! Where is the justice here?

    1. Try every law that has been passed since 1913, starting with the Federal Reserve Banking Act and the Internal Revenue Act. That is when all of this constitutional violations started.

  84. Nothing supersedes the Constitution or the Bill of
    Rights.  Congress can pass any law they
    like and the President can sign it, but it’s not law.  Any law that goes against the Constitution or
    the Bill of Rights has to be approved by a majority of the States.  Congress had no power to change the
    Constitution or the Bill of Rights.  So
    Obama my have sign HR 347 into law but I won’t abide by it nor should any other

  85. I can see where this is heading to the Supreme Court and a rightful DEATH for violating the Constitution of the United States and the First Amendment that says Congress shall make NO laws abridging free speech.

  86. How can ANY thinking American Legislator read this bill and even THINK of signing it?  This reminds me of ancient Roman laws, where you could be put to death for protesting or disobeying the order of a Roman Tribune or Consul or Governor.  Have we deteriorated down to the p;oint that we have an American Emperor in the White House?  I think Baraka Obama thinks we have!  We NEED to remind him otherwise. 

    1.  No we have a Communist dictator who is being aided and abetted by the Communist morons in Congress. Let’s see them enforce this when a huge group of people choose to let them know that this action is unconstitutional.

  87. Obama is a disgrace to the African Americans, White Americans, Native Americans and all peoples  because he supports Abortions, Homosexuality, Euthanization (killing elderly ill is in his healthcare coverage), and Banning Free Speech.  Anyone that votes for Obama is ignorant, unlearned or a fool!  Take your choice and send the United States of America into Hell on earth.     

  88. We got what we asked for. This hasn’t happened overnight, we the people got stupid
    and started believing this would never happen here. All the warning signs were there
    we choose not to act. Shame on us!

  89. I dont hate them , I despise liberals and democrats < Guess ill have to learn American sign language for use in their presence , right now all I can do is to raise my middle finger to them

  90. We need to start prompting our State Officials to start ceceding procedures from this socialistic ovomit administration who is bringing this country into a monocratic system with this anti-American illegal kenyan muslim as its leader!  If allowed, he would become a mullah dictator resulting in shria law as the rule in this country!  If this bozo is not going to conform to American standards, he must be done away with, impeached or whatever NOW and sent back to the country of his origin followed by riding America of several of his muslim brotherhood staff members!  Also, several liberals can accompany him, such as dingy harry reid, nancy pelosi, george soros, Geitner, and several other liberal congressional dumborats and a few republican numbskulls! 

  91. I saw the word “or” allot and “impedes or disrupts the orderly conduct of government business” and “conspires to do so, shall be punished.” What if Obama reads an e-mail or comment on this site he or one of his handlers considers “annoying” and considers it disorderly? OMG I’m headed to a FEMA camp for telling America, Obama supports the Islamic Brotherhood.

    1. don’ worry come jan 9th…he will be gone …packing up and heading back to kenya…and this law will be void!!!!!!! like him !!!!!!

    2. Well, if you find yourself headed for a FEMA camp for re-education or worse, don’t worry, you will be in good company.

  92. I find it appalling , but apparently , close to a majority of Americans agree with everthing this president has done to minimize the power of the United States Constitution , because I keep hearing about no republican has any chance of defeating him , and so the republican party is setting us up with a milquetoast  progressive as the only chance of defeating him .  Personally , I feel that if he is what the majority of dumbed down Americans want ,  then give it to them .  People generally get what they deserve sooner or later .  I’ll be leaving soon , (I am almost seventy )  so I could care less anymore . I have always tried to vote conservative but usually had to end up voting for the lessor of two evils , the non-conservative republican .  There have only been TWO real true American presidents in my lifetime .  That would be Eisonhower and Reagan . The rest have been progressive anti-Americans ,  Kennedy might not have been bad but that is probably why he was murdered .  

    1. My friend, I am 65 and your comment could very easily have been written by me. I have seen this country slide down the crapper and the populace didn’t seem to care. And you are right, all we are ever presented with is voting for the lesser of two evils which is still evil.


    “Current law makes it illegal to
    enter or remain in an area where certain government officials (more
    particularly, those with Secret Service protection) will be visiting
    temporarily if and only if the person knows it’s illegal to enter the
    restricted area but does so anyway.  The bill expands current law to
    make it a crime to enter or remain in an area where an official is
    visiting even if the person does not know it’s illegal to be in that
    area and has no reason to suspect it’s illegal.”

    It seems to me the Liberals are
    doing these things far more often and far more aggressive that any
    Conservatives ever have……remember the Wisconsin Fiasco when the
    Union Leaders and Union Membership took over the Wis. State Capitol and
    were threatening the Republican State Legislators. Not one Protestor was
    arrested…not one. Reckon that was because they were Socialists/Union

    Sure it was…..there is no equal application of the Laws as long as The Black Mamba Serpent is in Power.

    This will only be used against Republicans/Conservatives



  94. A great “liberal” hero once said, “those who make peaceful change  impossible will make violent change inevitable.” Perhaps the Kenyan fascist should heed those words.

  95. Didn’t NAZI Germany start this way – You could be arrested for any comment against the government.  I was watching the military channel where a women said a man she knew mumbled something against the government and a Gestapo agent overheard him – he was told to report to Gestapo headquarters the next day and was never heard from again! 

  96. I think this government is running pretty scared of We the People.  I saw the story of Leon Penetta on his trip to Afghanistan.  He had a little trouble at the airport with an Afghan trying to blow him up.  Later, when he was speaking to our own troops, the troops had to lay down all their weapons before they could be admitted to listen to his talk.  It is something when the Secretary of Defense is afraid of the troops he is leading.

  97. wowwwwwwwww..sounds  like lil  obama must be getting death threats hu????? running scared i think should be the title for this page…NOW HE WANTS help????     keep running obama…keep running!!!!!! and how does this law help gabby????????  or anybody  except him of course…….sad….real…sad  !!!!!!! wasting out time and $$$$$ on this…how about acting on some of the OTHER  problems that have been around since he first took office……and never got taken care of ??????? 

  98. Ask yourself out of all the thousands and millions of e-mails, phone calls, petitions and protest in the last 3 years and 3 months that have been sent to congress and obama by we the people that insist they go by the Constitution and Bill of Rights or oppose a bill have they done so. It may have stop them for a while only to see the unconstitutional bill to come up at a later date under a different title to be passed.
    Congress and obama is not on your side and they will not leave office, wait and see this election. The last election didn`t make a difference why because the fix is in on the vote. The vote will not get them out.
    The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. Thomas jefferson.
    The above will be to late if obama gets reelected, the first thing obama will do is take your guns and ammo away from you, then you will be reduced down to throwing rocks while they put a bullet between the eyes of the person standing next to you.

    Another chip off the ol Constitution and Bill  or Rights, how many more people?

    1. That is why I refuse to send any more faxes, sign any more petitions, write letters or make phone call to any of my so-called “representatives”. they are consistently ignored as are the peaceful protests of the Tea Party members. The ONLY gathering I will attend in the future is one where every one is armed to the teeth and ready to do battle to save our country from the traitors who have taken over. When such a unit is formed, let me know and I will get there even if I have to crawl.

  99. Okay, I have read about some politician, dictator that did this, just cannot remember where or when.  Sorry, now I remember, Adolf Hitler did this when he began the Nazi party and his desire to rule the world, is OBAMA now making the same type of move?  OBAMA holds all sorts of big parties for big wigs with tons of money while saying he feels for the poor people then he “ALLOW S”  fuel and food prices to increase!  Maybe we should give the stiff arm salute to Obama and say Heil OBAMA!!

  100. While I agree this sounds like a breach of our constitution, I wonder how it could work to our advantage?  No more OWS in front of state houses? No more threats to our Republican officials?  Making it illegal for anyone to  b lock a conservative House member  from going to work?  No more union strikes blocking governors from their office?  Maybe the left should think about that before they pass stupid laws.  The law goes both ways.

    1. Yeah, keep dreaming. When Hitler came to power it was only the ‘Brown Shirt’ Hooligans who got away with all sorts of violence.

  101. Slowly but surely, obama is tearing our Constitution apart, and nobody is stopping him. Those who are SUPPOSED to adhere to the oath of office they took are not doing so, and are no better than obama. obama is making himself a dictator in the true meaning of the word and if he isn’t stopped, we will be a 3rd world country soon. 

  102. This bill is indeed “overly broad,” with good reason.  Does anyone deny that law enforcement officers at all levels of government already have all the power they need to maintain order and protect public figures in any circumstances?  Now they just have more arbitrary power to stifle legitimate dissent. 

    Of course Comrade Zero signed it.  Good for you, House Republicans!  You’ve just betrayed and insulted us with a police state, silence the critics, criminalize disagreement piece of tyranny worthy of the Third Reich. Who needs Democrats, when we have traitors like you?

    1. We no longer have a police force any where in America today. What we have can more accurately be described as a paramilitary force. On the streets of New York City, the police have the “right” to scan pedestrians at random as they walk by, to see what they carrying or have on their person. Here in New York State, if you are accused of any misdemeanor, even speeding, upon conviction you are now required by law to submit a DNA sample. This just passed today.

      Now as if all of this isn’t enough, the federal government has been given permission (by who, I don’t know) to fly drones all over the U.S. to spy on us.

      Have you looked on line or in police gear magazines lately? There is nothing that remotely looks like police gear, it as all military. Friendly policeman, “Officer Bill” is a thing of the past, with his friendly smile and a wave, now they scowl at you and you are more inclined to avert your eyes and look away.

  103. The right of assembly is a tricky area. There are many situations where a permit is required for assembly or demonstration. There should be a good reason for such a permit to be denied, otherwise, it should be approved. A blanket denial as what appears to be in this bill likely would lose in a court ruling unless the area has been declared a restricted area.
    Would this mean that tours of the White House would be terminated or peaceful assembly outside the gates surrounding the White House not be permitted? I believe assembly outside the gates should be lawful as long as it is peaceful and forceful removal would be a violation of right to assemble.

  104. um … can someone point out to me where it says you can not SPEAK if it is your turn to speak ? 

    I only see language to KEEP ORDER when GOVERNMENT BUSINESS is being done.

    Looks like everyone is getting angry over a HIGHLY EXAGGERATED ARTICLE TITLE.

  105. Ode Of The Day

    Liberals who are noted for being uncouth,Are well known for not telling the truth.
    Consequently, day by day,
    American are throwing their freedom away.

  106. Obama a ‘cursed’ Muslim; having nooo authority to sign ANYTHING  undermining OUR American constitution of which HE is is trying anything/everything to abolish!  A liar and TRUTH not in ’em …

  107. What would have happened in WI when those UNION idiots occupied the state capital for months on end and are now having a recall on the governor who was balancing the out of control budget by stopping public employee unions from demanding MORE outrageous salaries than taxpayers can pay?  I guess ALL the union goons would have been jailed!

  108. This act is what I feared would happend.after the last election. if Obama became voted in as president of the United State Of America. When he coverd up the use of is middle name. And when someone would speck out.
    they was taken way. This man or beast or what ever you would called him. Is no better then any of our far Eastren. Country that want to see our fall .And. an end to the united States of America. How can A united state sentor. That say about his birth was in another country.Saying no Im  not from the US nor was I borned in the US, It don’t matter where I was borned or raised. Because I’m not running for President Of the United State. Im running for sentor of Ill. and I can run for the office or even for govenor. Then less then Two years. and two years  later low and behold is running for a President Of the United State, And Won over Hillary R Ciliton. Now he taken our first Amendment right . To use pertty much agains any one how speck out about him  he can have then arested and jailed. Dont the Bible warn us about. The comming of the end as we know it. And 6 heads and one body.That what road we are on now..I my not be a good speller.But I do know. And see whats happending to our country The united State Of America, Marshall law will be placed in effect Before The Election can even be hold.and Obama put him self over all americans. Just like Husein did to his countrys men and woman.I said back in 2008. That if Barack hussein Obama became our preident.  It will be the begaining of the end of our country.And the American people. The begaining of a 1000 years hold and loss of our country.I wounder.Will I go To jail from what I’m saying. Only time will tell.witch we don’t have much of it left to go.Wake up America see the truth and Dont be blinded by Obama.  Who he really is.  He the same snake that got Eve to eat the apple.and pushed Adam to take a bit him self. and now He’s back in human form. To lie cheat and use the power.  We as a nation gave to him to bring us to our knees.He’s worst then any Cancer or any type of cancer.He’s not Hitler. He’s far worst then anyone we have ever knowen of in our passed. And there is only one book that talks of him. And his comming. and a begaining of the end. Its time that we the people make a stand and if that mean to pick up arms.And take it back so be it.  We the people for the people. Its time to do something NOW.We can’t  wait we have run out of time. Before we are hearded into the prison’s and given our last right.
    And or  making a choice to live under what they will call the new world. A choice of change.
    Barack Hissein Obama said it. And the American people fail for it hook line & SINKER.

  109. Only one candidate forPresident consistently campaigns for the importance of defending your civil liberties. Yet despite his efforts he is constantly ignored and dismissed as crazy.

    It’s not too late to listen to reason. “Free people keep in mind; Liberty may be obtained, but once lost is never regained”

    Only one candidate will put your liberties ahead of the interest of government. He made warned America of the dangers of our eroding liberties on the campaign trail in 2007 only to be dismissed as crazy then, look how far we’ve fallen since then.

    Now, imagine how much further we might fall without someone willing to champion the cause. Of liberty for 4 more years.

    Wake up America! This could be our last chance to “Restore America”

    The choice is still yours, at least for now. While we still have the right to choose.

    “Restore America Now” Ron Paul for President 2012

    1. Please be aware a petition to RNC is available to pledge to write Dr.Paul  in as your choice for 2012.I  am all in for Dr.Paul. He has my pledge.  Go make your stand for the right man for this nation.Sign the petition. God Bless America and Dr.Paul !

  110. Well people said it couldn’t happen here !!!!!!!!!!!!! Alinskys  Rules for Radicals is in full swing….The Marxists have pulled the wool over most in congress’s eyes…This is all about power…against the conservetives, independants……..Bet it wont apply to OWS people blanck panthers, etc get the picture..Just one mans opinion

  111. Whatever could have prompted all this paranoia!  Perhaps the very fact that Obama knows we know who he is and who he sure as hell is not!  He is reacting as any criminal in fear of prosecution and or persecution.  WELL!  How does that make you feel, despot?   

  112. If anyone knows their history this is almost the exact path that Hitler took to power.  One little snip at a time and then he found a boogy man to go attack the world in his quest for total domination.  I see here wer speak of Ron Paul and the House in accusitory language but you better wake up people.  We have a budding dictator residing in the Whitehouse and HE DID SIGN THE BILL regardless who sponsored it or whose ill idea it was to propose it in the first place.  Most all of congress are little more than morons who can lie effectively. There’s more intellect in my little finger than the lot of them.  This president, and I use little “p”,  because that’s all this Manchurian Candidate deserves, most certainly needs to be defeated in November if we are to retain our Republic. 

    Another note to the blacks in the audience.  From the Bible, “forgive them father for they know not what they do.”  The black community has voted almost to a man/woman to elect this man and in so doing you won’t see another black man elected to this office for another hundred years!  So many more deserving
    black men you could have stood behind but NO!  You wanted this liar in chief!  How’s that hope and change working out for you???? 

  113. This is but one more step closer to America becoming just another Soviet like dictatorship — Just what Kruschev said would happen, we are becoming a Soviet style state and the people have their heads buried in the sand. The government presents a bill as a “needed protection” for members of Government yet word it so it can be used to negate, hinder, do away with and kill political descent.

    If the liberals get the White House and the Senate again, the courts will be packed with those activist judges that will support this move towards totalitarianism. Between now and November, the American People had better wake up. Evne now the Justice Department is setting the stage for voter fraud on an epidemic scale with its refusal to allow states to demand that voters produce a photo, government issued, ID card to vote.

  114. People!  I keep screaming to you.  Wake up!  We have slipped into becoming a Marxist State.  Just a fact of life.  It has been happening for years.  Not just under Democraps, but Republiscams alike.  America for the most part it run by edict.  You and I soon will have no rights, certainly, no Bill of Rights.  They were a deterence to being rulled by an oppresive government.  These rights have ben chipped away at for years.  With  oboffer in the White House, it simply a speed up in the implimentation of Marxism.  Again, simply a fact of life.  Thoumas Jefferson said that a Republic would only last America about 400 years before it turned into a repressive State.  Hello!  Welcome to reality.  You and I mean nothing to Government.  We can be extinguished on an as need basis.  President obama is simply slamming the hammer of Marxism down quickly to ultimately destroy every bit of freedom you and I enjoy.  Mmm, mmm, mmm.

  115. No one can get on the white house grounds, but for publicity, I saw on tv Brad and Andelina in the white house, a picture taken through a window.  Brad and Angelina must have a new movie coming. out

  116.  Pine scaffolds on the mall, with thirteen steps to the deck, followed by
    a short drop and a sudden stop would cure most of our countries problems.
    All following a Constitutionally authorized speedy trial. Not many examples
    would be neede to get the minds right of those that ignore our Constitution
    revoke our liberty and waste and steal our ‘treasure’ .
    OMG–Obama Must Go

  117. This blog says that some officials would need extra protection…….Hmmmm, I’ll bet they are talking about the imposter in chief. He would have to be grateful for the secret service since there are so many of us that are on to his game of tearing our country down to nothing! I wish our almighty military would show up at the WH door & take him away & out of our sight forever! 

  118. I’ll bet this bill was a result of the rude and disruptive behavior of  the “Occupy Wallstreet” protestors. So long, Freedom of Speech! The Constitutionally of this law must be immediately challenged in Federal Court! Where is the ACLU??

  119.   I hope that we have a Nuremburg sort of court after all the dust settle’s so that those who are guilty of changing the constitution and bill of rights are charged with treason and taken care of like they did back then !

  120. It’s not their property, it is our property, let’s evict them, the sooner the better, they don’t deserve to live on our property for free, no better then the occupy crowd, they must go so it can be condemned as unlivable.

  121. This end of free speech bill is a terrifying blow to our freedom, but in fairness I cannot blame Obama. Congress sent this to him. All upset citizens should contact their legislators. And where were we all in letting this happen?

  122. Will this mean occupy wall street demonstrators can’t protest on government property outside of govt buildings etc?  Or is this just for Tea Party gatherings?

    1. OWS can do almost anything they want but when a Christian group recently tried to pray on a public sidewalk near the White House they were arrested. How’s that for freedom of religion?  Now we have no freedom of speech or religion, what’s next?

  123. I lived in Italy for the better part of 10 years and I can say as a foreign card-carrying resident, that this is exactly what they did in Italy as well. We already have a system where the two parties (one party in many respects), determines who our candidates are. At least we have some term limits. In Italy they simply ‘play musical chairs’ … and nothing ever changes … nor ever could.

  124. The real issue here should be that the very essence of this piece of legislation suggests that our elected officials feel that they need the authority to be able to have us arrested should we decide to redress them for grievances at a time of our choosing instead of a time of their choosing.

    I don’t know about the rest of you, but my Senators and representatives here in NC no longer reply to my emails or telephone calls.

    Seemingly with this new travesty of a law they’ll no longer need to be concerned about any of us showing up to address any concerns either.

    What this law really says is “We no longer work for you”.

    1. They love it when you say, “F. the government”. They detest our government, too, wanting to flush it down the toilet so they can put in their own New World Order.

  125.  Will this law keep the Union Thugs out of the Wisconsin Capital building?  And keep them from all their vile destruction???????

  126. I’m sure this law will be selective………..if you know what I mean……….And our idiot rino’s voted for it. 
    Just try to shut me up/////

  127. I have zero tolerance for barak obama and all of his criminal cronies! They all need to be removed from power now, before we lose any more freedoms and liberties that our forefathers fought and died to give to us.

  128. I would love to see this used on the “goonion” thugs in Wisconsin and other Govt place where THEY disrupt normal business. Occupy movement would also be affected.

  129. Then i guess we will have to make sure there not politicians anymore, it will make it easier to vote them out. They start banning words they know where they can go. Most of the words those jerks want to ban, there the only ones that use them anyway

  130. Only THREE Congressional members voted against this bill.  Therefore, EVERY Congressional member, including Rubio, West, Rand Paul, all of them, should be voted out next election cycle.  Wake the F up people, the country is in deep trouble!!!

    1. How many of Congress paid attention the PROOF by Sheriff Joe Arpaio that Mr. Obama’s birth certificate and draft registration are FRAUDS?
      ALL ought to be thrown out. Unfortunately, even if they’re all thrown out, they have ENORMOUS lifetime retirement packages that we’ll pay for as long as they’re alive.

  131. Really, I mean, really.  With ALL the problem this administration is having,  they actually have time on their hands to vote on something this stupid.  Am I crazy, or everytime the majority of people vote one way, our President goes the opposite way.  I guess that is just how much he listens to us tax payors.

    1. He considers “the people” to be a nuisance. After all, when all them spout CO2 as they do, they’re all polluting and making the “global warming”, right? (NOT)
      He was raised to believe he is the Messiah and it’s gone to his head. It will be funny when the Elite do a JFK on him, using him to start enough chaos to require Martial Law and the overthrow of the government so the UN can “save” us with their New World Order.

  132. Well since free speech will soon be gone I might as well use mine now…I find the muslim religion disgusting..its rules treat women as cattle and too many of its followers are willing to kill for their derranged beliefs. I also find the sight of 2 grown men kissing on the mouths disgusting and wish they would all go back in their closets where we don’t have to see them. I believe our borders should be sealed with military forces and national everify passed. Along with that no one here illegally should receive any benefits including  food stamps and welfare and that children born here should not get benefits either unless their mother is here legally and that rule should apply to birthright citizenship also so that the child is not a citizen unless the mother is as one cannot be sure who the father is. Voting should require photo ID and any illegal picked up for any reason should and must be deported as our laws require. So there..thats my free speech and no I am not far right…I am an Independent!

  133.   This appears to be a “tempest in a teapot” fueled by several invalid assumptions made by individuals that consider themselves “victims of the system”. If the politicos that formulate our system of laws were as reactionary as most of the people that have assumed the worst  by taking a generality out of context and unfairly postulating  an unreal and improbable conclusion, our country would be an anarchist’s heaven.
      If the  person in the restaurant having a meal, utters a remark that is deemed a threat to the glad-handing politician, he should have exercised some common sense, unless he/she is the loosely-wound type that would yell ” Fire ” in a crowded auditorium.  This is definitely not a law that infringes on our freedom of speech, but the assumption is that the Secret Service will run rough-shod over the poor citizen that states his dislike of an idea, a politician’s beliefs, or some imagined slight. You must think that all of humanity is ready and willing to abandon common sense and reason to exercise their right to freedom of speech to the most ridiculous of extremes, you are wrong friend. Not all of us share the same delusional view of their fellow man as some of you have proven by your assumptions and responses to this bill. If you are so inclined as to style yourself  a victim of the system and dare to compare our democratic process to dictatorial monarchies and self-serving despots, exercise your right to vote intelligently for the degree of insanity that you desire. If this is something you are really serious about and feel that it cannot be done here, try Uganda, Iran, The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, and that Indian Ocean paradise, Myunmar. Those people just adore re-educating persons with vocal indications of not liking the status quo.    

    1. Having an “assumption is that the Secret Service will run rough-shod over the poor citizen that states his dislike of an idea” is probably prudent. Remember that Mr. Obama PROMISED to not abuse NDAA, but he’s a LIAR and also a PUPPET of the Elite who seem to want to flush the country down the toilet. Divide and conquer has worked for eons!

  134. This bill would never have become law if republicans, even Tea Party members had not voted for it.  They deserve as much blame as our president.

  135.   Give this some deep thought : never pet a flaming dog. Or try to piss off a cobra that has been napping on your warm chest. A wise man remains silent, an idiot opens his mouth and proves himself.

  136.  And if that person happens to have a pocketknife or nail clippers in his
    possession (or any other innocuous item that could be interpreted by
    the police as ‘dangerous’), he could face up to 10 years in prison.

    DAMN,, Does that include “finger-nails that are too long????  or maybe someone  with A BRAIN who LOVES AMERICA and FREEDOM.

    Because IF obuma is there,, someone  with A BRAIN who LOVES AMERICA and FREEDOM WILL NOT BE.

  137. Just another step toward Socialism, keep them deft, dump and bewildered so we can get on with our dirty work of keeping out the Public, that way we don’t ever have to answer to them in Public. Was a tactic used by Hitler, he kept the audience at bay with the brown Shirts and later the SS. We are headed in the same direction! 


      Do you remember the overwhelming presence and “branding” that all of “the Enemy’s” promotions created during the last campaign? It made people more open-minded to his lies & deceit every time they saw his stuff because the sheer amount of it weakened and sickened them into believing he’d win anyway, which is exactly what all marketing people KNOW will happen when you “hit ‘em hard enough & long enough”.

  139. IF a law like that really does restrict  free speech then that law is Illegal and must be ignored and thrown out sibnce the constitution says that any law that goes aginst any part of the constitution is considered to be illegal and must be recinded ; please washington morons go and  learn to read ,.

  140. Wait tiil they pass ( H.R. 666) it says just stand in one place and don’t move! I hate libs and repubs, and the tea party is dead.

  141. Headed over a cliff unless we put the brakes on! Seems crazy that the rest of my Great Country cannot grasp what is happening here! Dooped are the goofy Dems who think they are smarter & going, “Green!” It is all a ruse & a logical person knows that.  This falls under the same umbrella as all of this, more freedoms taken away systematically!  Matters not your party, you will circle the drain w/the rest of America if we continue on this course! 

    1. Do they anticipate that things will get so bad that people will not leave them alone and there will be riots and they need further protection from the people that the majority voted for them into office in the first place? I say vote them out of there and get some people who have decent solid plans for America so they are not wanting undue protection from the masses. If better plans were implemented there would be no desire to be overly protected. Give us sound money and quit spending so much and stop these endless wars that we never really win.

  142. Current law also prohibits these kind of laws. Check out USC Title 18 sections 241 an 242. Also check out Treaty with States under Citizen’s Rights. In a nut shell all rights are to remain INTACT. This is a breach of TREATY. This means the feds just surrendered their right to rule us for the how many thousandth time? If the US is bound to honor Treaties above all other laws then this is another prime example of our fine Govt at work. Just ask any Native American about US integrity where treaties are concerned….As for me I do NOT recognise any Laws that violate Treaty with the American People. We need to inform DC WE WILL NOT COMPLY!!!!

  143. Will this include all the liberals that follow Bush around and scream over him? Will this include the left’s favorites – OWS crowd? I can’t wait to see…

  144. 1st Amendment: Congress shall make NO LAW respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise therof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or TO ASSEMBLE, and to PETITION THE GOVERNMENT for a REDRESS OF GRIEVANCES.

    Well, I guess Obama forgot to read that last part about Petition the government for a Redress Of Grievances.
    As well as the part about Congress shall make NO LAW.
    Obama’s shoe bottoms must be really clean now after wiping his feet yet again on the Constitution of the United States. The man has got to go, before we wake up one morning and we will have to have permission from the government to take a breath of air (actually I had something else in mind that involved toilet paper but I’m trying to be nice here). Oh, sorry we already have the EPA don’t we. 

  145. This bill was written and introduced by Rep. Tom Rooney, a Republican from Florida, a decorated soldier and an Iraq War veteran. It was approved unanimously by voice vote by all relevant committees and approved by the Republican-led House by a vote of 399-3. Rep. Amash was indeed one of the three that voted against it, but he was also one of nine House members and the only Republican to have voted against the reaffirmation of “In God We Trust” back in November. What HR347 does, according to the committee report, is extend existing legal protections afforded other government buildings to executive branch buildings which are omitted from existing laws affording certain security protections. It also adds an “unlawful entry” element that would prohibit anyone from, say, crashing a White House press conference or unlawfully enter and disturb a Congressional markup on defense funding all covered in red paint and yell “stop the war.” This is probably why the far left is so upset about this legislation and that the “Occupy” movement has been protesting it this week. But these kinds of acts are disrespectful to our military and veterans and the legislative process, yet happen time and time again and should be illegal. Also, this bill affords much needed added security not only for elected officials, foreign dignitaries and military leaders, but also members of the public that ARE lawfully present in government buildings, like eighth graders getting a White House or Capitol building tour or members of the public attending a hearing on an important issue that affects them.

  146. Sounds dangerously selective and subject to extreme bias. If the people are to be silenced on their dissent what is to stop Congress being silenced as well? Sweet deal – any disagreements can be solved with punishment. How will they arrest and detain a March on Washington? That’s right it says Punished not prosecuted. Define Punish: removal from premises, slap on wrist, club, arrest, bullet??? Syria in America?

    1. From reports, Media is to be punished for reporting on anything embarassing already. No wonder the best truthful part of news is the weather, and we know how accurate that is.

  147. Wonder if this would be applied with “fairness & equality”? Would ACORN or Occupiers be targeted? What about CAIR & other Muslim/Islamic organizations? What about unions? My guess, probably not. Only time will tell. — VOTE FOR AMERICA in November — Stay Well/Stay Safe/Stay Free

  148. And,here is Johnny Jack. Do not turn around to fast for you might see it coming,BAMM,BAMM. Anyone that carries a sign with a different point of view that is standing across the street,straight to the goolog for you. Anyone that Booos at a town official in a city hall forum,right to the hooscow,just you look and see how long this new over reaching beast will fly.

  149.  Guess what…this law has been on the books since 1971.  It was last amended in 2006 during the PATRIOT Re-Authoriztion Act.  It was a crime then.

  150. so, what’s the definition of “restricted area?” What are it’s dimensions? Ten feet from a public figure? Two blocks away from where he or she is speaking? Can I fly a plane overhead with a banner espousing an opposite viewpoint? What is disorderly? What is disruptive? When a president reaches out to shake my hand at a gathering, can I comment about his policies as he is doing so? If a congressman or mayor, or board member invites comment at a local gathering in a townhall meeting, can I say something against his or her voting record? or is it that an invitee can only state something that endorses their position? Does a mere question mean I am disorderly or disruptive? What about “planted” questions from “planted” invitees? Does this policy hold for non-officeholder candidates to public office? is my right to “peacefully assemble” with others of like mind disrupted by this so-called law ? does it effect an abridgment of my right to freedom of speech? how do I (in what manner) therefore “petition the Government for a redress of my grievances?” (Amendments to US Constitution, Art. 1) Does any poorly defined “disruption” result in or cause a”reasonable–or–unreasonable search of my person” for artifacts or weapons, as against the 4th Amendment? is one of my rights to engage in a deliberation with a public official a right guaranteed under the 9th Amendment? Does denying my right to deliberate with a public official also “abridge” my right to vote (i.e, gain sufficient knowledge of an issue to properly vote) as against both the 15th and 19th Amendments?

  151. isn’t it fun how all these years this law wasn’t on the books until now! we have to stick togeather now more than ever.all of dc is now better find out who your electors are and make contack and check them out because they are bought .

  152. What impact will this have on the president attending sporting events in large arenas or stadiums? Will every spectator be subject to search?  B.O. attended the first NCAA  Tourney games. Were all spectators there his ardent supporters? I doubt it. Some one there is bound to have a pocket  knife and surely a nail clipper.

  153. now this is what we have here, congress and the senate wants their cakes and eat it too, but for the ones that votes for these things, there they are holding our mouths so we can not say nothing about them, haven’t we done that already with the TV, does anyone say anything about the DEMS , or is it just REP, including Bush, that gets all the blame for all things, how I love this country and what we do to eachother, and yet do nothing at all….the laugh is on all of us.

  154. Until we, as free American’s get enough guts to stand up together and stop this, we can all sit on our asses in front of our computer’s and espouse any kind of opinion we want.  Do something.  Join an organization.  Make continous calls to your state reps, gov., senator, congressmen etc.  Start a petition. But do something besides sit and complain.  If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem.  Any man who sits by and says nothing is actually condoning what’s happening.

  155. This Is Yet  Another Reason To Put Obama And HisFellow  Socialists In His Administration ,In Congress On Trial For Ennumberal Acts Of Treason And Numerous High Crimes And Misdemeanors That They Have And Continue To Commit Against The United States And The American People And Should Be Prosecuted To The Fullest Extent Of The Law. Obama And Select Others From His Administration And Congress As Well As  Socialist Advocant Federal Judges Should Receive The Ultimate Sentence DEATH!

  156. The difficulty for them is that if people can’t voice their dissatisfaction the politicians remain ignorant, not that they care anyway. The advantage to the voters is that they won’t have a clue that they will be voted out of office. We may not be allowed to speak our minds to them directly, but we can speak loud and clear in the voting booth.

  157. This is simply Communism. Scare people  into submission. Take away their voice. Take away their choice.
    This would make it illegal to speak up at a town meeting  where we are supposed to be able to vent our frustrations to our politician.

    1. I agree with you. I thought we already have laws enough against truly bad things that people should not do and it seems there are more and more laws and so many that we don’t even know all of them.

  158. Under the constitution,”We the people shall not recognize such a law and refuse to acknowladge it”.
    This is a Despotic act and should be recognized as such.
    The constitution is a contract and not a living breathing document.
    In fact. All judges that see it as a living breathing document should be thrown off the bench.
    All politicians that see it this way should be removed from office.

  159. Remove all the politicians who voted for this from office. This is our First Ammendment—you are taking away our right to speak – to tell you what we expect from our elected officials… TAKE ALL OF YOU OUT OF OFFICE….. VOTERS WAKE UP….GET THESE PEOPLE OUT OF OFFICE…FOR THE GOOD OF ALL THE PEOPLE  WHO STILL BELIEVE IN AMERICA…

  160. Be afraid, be very afraid! This combined with the ability for th Government to just shoot a suspected terrorist and we have the makings of a totalitarian rule her in America!  2012 is our LAST CHANCE to thurn this around otherwise it is the end of the greatest nation on earth!

    1. I fear that we are not on the correct path. They are going to far with all this intrusion upon liberty and we have to vote in people to correct our path back to liberty as it should be. It is Ron Paul for me.

  161. Luke 10:18And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
    In ancient Hebrew the word for lightning is barack, the word for heaven or the
    heights is bama and to connect the words either an “a” or an “o” is used.

    “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” – Barack Hussein Obama – Audacity of Hope

    2 Thessalonians 2:3 (King James Version)
    3Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

    Political Correctness a term first seen in Mao’s Little Red Book, a communist engendered abomination that is instituting censorship little by little.

    “If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.”- George Washington

    Carl Marx, once wrote that, the goal of the Communists was to quote,. “enter into men’s minds and cast God down from his throne.”

    Matthew 12:31Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.


    In ancient Babylon their economy was based on usury.
    “If you lend money to one of my people among you who is needy, do not be like a moneylender; charge him no interest. Exodus 22:25
    Hath given forth upon usury, and hath taken increase: shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him. Ezekiel 18:13
    Usury is unlawful; expressly prohibited by GOD!
     Article 1 Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution clearly states that only the Congress can print and coin money! 

    The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 was slipped thru congress during the Christmas break with the majority of it’s members absent. 

    The Federal Reserve is self serving and privately owned in violation to the Constitution, charging interest on illegally printed money. Money printed from nothing!
    In America On June 4, 1963, a virtually unknown Presidential decree, Executive Order 11110, was signed with the authority to basically strip the Federal Reserve Bank of its power to loan money to the United States Federal Government at interest. With the stroke of a pen, President Kennedy declared that the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank would soon be out of business. Five months later A UNITED STATES PRESIDENT, PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY was MURDERED BY COMMUNIST! 

    “If you lend money to one of my people among you who is needy, do not be like a moneylender; charge him no interest. Exodus 22:25

    Usury is unlawful; expressly prohibited by GOD!
    In ancient Babylon their priest sacrificed babies to their gods baal, and molech.  
    In America the communist under their socialist programs have sacrificed over 50 million American babies to their god satan!
    Leviticus 20:2-5
    2Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel , Whosoever he be of the children of Israel , or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel , that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones.
    3And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name.
    4And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not:
    5Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people.
    Luke 22:35-36 Then Jesus asked them, “When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?” “Nothing,” they answered. 36 He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.
    Jeremiah 50:16Cut off the sower from Babylon, and him that handleth the SICKLE in the time of harvest: for fear of the oppressing sword they shall turn every one to his people, and they shall flee every one to his own land.
    Jeremiah 50:23How is the HAMMER OF THE WHOLE EARTH CUT ASUNDER AND BROKEN! how is Babylon become a desolation among the nations!
    Jeremiah 50:14 “ Put yourselves in array against Babylon all around, All you who bend the bow; Shoot at her, spare no arrows, For she has sinned against the LORD.

    All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD will I destroy them. Psalm 118:10

    Revelation 18:21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying , Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down , and shall be found no more at all.



  162. This bill protects politicians from being disrupted or blocked from government business. I’m surmising then that potentially even a verbal insult or outburst at a town meeting might put one at risk for prosecution. This is surely a free speech killing piece of legislation.

    1. I agree with you. What happened to our Constitution? I still think the “old way” I guess that is the problem? Prosecution for speaking out or a protection from those who tell the truth? Truth hurts I guess. It is like a two edge sword seperating the good from the evil.

  163. There should be a law preventing legislators from making any knee jerk raction laws.  Whenever they feel they have to act immediately to some crisis or situation we always end up with their crap.  There needs to be a mandatory 6 month to a year cooling off period before they should be allowed to write any of these reactionary laws.  Remember what “too big to fail” got us.  Even worse, the tyrant Obama now says he “can’t wait” for Congress to act.  God help us. 

  164. I hope in the coming congressional elections incumbants understand that reminding the people of their opponets voteing record is not negative campaigning it is reminding the people of what they are voteing for or against.

  165. I bet this won’t be used to keep Union thugs from disrupting, threatening or being otherwise disorderly during any conservative politician’s speech or conducting of business. It will only be used when some panty-waist liberal politician can’t handle conservatives questioning what they are doing at some liberal function, like registering illegal immigrants to vote. Watch that’s how liberals work they make if sound to conservatives like it’s needed and fair and then only use it when it suits their needs because somehow theirs are the only needs that count.

  166. Congratulations to all those who voted for Obama, the self appointed dictator. I’m sure he experienced a high degree of joy when signing this bill which further diminishes our freedoms. We’re one step closer to countries led by despots around the world. How about all those in the House and Senate who signed off on this bill. They have a ulterior motive. They’re cowards and have the foresight to consider the effect of this bill during their own next election effort. Yea, they’ll claim to be the guys and gals deserving of our vote during future town hall meetings. Lets see what happens when attendees speak their minds in contravention to the politician’s positions. I hope those who speak their mind will enjoy three hots and a cot in a federal penal facility. Don’t think for one minute that many of the elected cowards who signed off on this bill didn’t give this a thought. For the rest who voted yea are either just flat out stupid or, like Obama, just don’t care about what they’re doing to our country.


  168. The word politician comes from  Greek poly-meaning many and ticks meaning blood sucking insects.
    A very apt description.

  169. Constitution….constitution… didn’t we use to have one of those? we should ask Ruth Bader Ginsberg …she should know and our Pres the community “organizer” constitutional professor SHOULD know …..RIGHT???? or maybe Saul Alinski, Bill Ayers,  or MiSS Dorn will know……WAIT I SEE A PATTERN HERE!!!! Do ya’ll?

  170. The current president and legislators in govt make me sick. They want to be called the unapprociables. I say vote them all out and shorten the legislators terms in office.

  171. Typical of Obamanations rule over the people of this great country. While we aren’t perfect this is going to far. This country was founded as a democratic society not the socialist system Nobama wants this country run under. If any bill should have been passed it should have been a gag order on that idiot.

  172. Just one more stab into the heart of our once-great Constitution.

    The NSA is building a complex in Utah that can/will see all our emails and listen to our phone calls.

    The NDAA allows the Gubmint to arrest peaceful American citizens, detain them indefinitely with NO legal recourse and NO access to a lawyer, and possibly face EXECUTION without a hearing, all for the crime of having more than 7 days of food stored, standing (loitering) outside a government building (no more eating your lunch at the public library lawn!), writing notes outside a government building, owning a firearm, etc – basically describes most conservatives!

    Flee to another country? The “president” now has the authority to sent the military after you to KILL you.

    Now I can’t protest my government as proscribed in the First Amendment. The Catholic Church MUST provide abortion services through their self-insurance, against their morals, against the First Amendment.

    Fast and Furious was designed to show how bad federally licensed gun stores are contributing to the gun violence in Mexico – and to put more stringent restrictions on our Second Amendment rights.

    With all the new surveillance equipment available, our Fourth and Fifth Amendment rights are about gone.

    Can you see how hard the governors – even the democrats – will yell when the Feds take away the Tenth Amendment? All their power – GONE.

    OWS is now being run by SEIU, AFL-CIO, the Teamsters, the Longshoremen, and the Auto Workers unions. Their stated goal is to create as much chaos as possible – violence is ALWAYS an option to these people. (When I say the unions, it’s primarily the union BOSSES and a select number of their thugs/lackeys, not the union members as a whole.) I can see early June, the violence starts in scattered locations. July, it starts heating up. September, the violence is wide-spread. By mid-October, the violence is so bad (at least as reported by the drive-by media), that Obama has to declare martial law to help contain the violence – and “has to postpone the elections for the public’s safety”. And continues to postpone the elections. Civil War II, anyone??

    May God have mercy on our souls.

    TEA – Gingrich/Cain 2012!

  173. So, how does this have anything to do with a person in a crowd who wants to shoot the speaker? 

    I have to assume that they are going to have rallies with no one there. 

    Is one going to have to sign a loyalty oath before entering the vicinity of a holy person (politician)?

  174. It has been close to this for quite a long time now, White’s are FORBIDDEN TO CALL BLACKS  ” NIGGER ” AND LOOK AT IMUS with the term HO’S for the Female Basketball Team and there are many more also calling the  Muslims ” SAND NIGGERS ” AND  you are forbidden to say ” GOD ” and  ” CHRISTMAS ” forget it.   ” POLITICAL CORRECTNESS ”  SUCKS!  LET’S GET SMART REPUBLICAN’S STOP THE BULLSHIT FIGHTING EACH OTHER THE LEFT IS LAUGING AT YOU GUYS. I love Sarah Palin she could give a “SHIT” WHAT THE LEFT THINK”S…………..

  175. bunch of communist in congress,just let this dictator do what ever he wants,what a damn shame
    all the blood that has been sheaded from years past to present ,is slowly coming in vein,what has took over 200 years this dictator has destroyed it in a less than three years ,scandel after scandel ,not being held acountable ,this is an obamanation ,

  176. I can’t claim authorship of this – got this in an email from the Tea Party Nation.

    This one has not made much news outside of the conservative blogosphere.  It is the newest executive order signed by Barack Obama.

    Anyone nervous yet?
    From the Examiner:
    On March 16th, President Obama signed a new Executive Order which expands upon a prior order issued in 1950 for Disaster Preparedness, and gives the office of the President complete control over all the resources in the United States in times of war or emergency.
    The National Defense Resources Preparedness order gives the Executive Branch the power to control and allocate energy, production, transportation, food, and even water resources by decree under the auspices of national defense and national security.  The order is not limited to wartime implementation, as one of the order’s functions includes the command and control of resources in peacetime determinations.
    I am not an alarmist but the idea of the Obama regime having total control over anything is disturbing.  No it isn’t disturbing, it is totally, freaking scary.
    Also from the Examiner:
    The economy of the United States is based on the free flow of resources, energy, and the rights of consumers to buy and sell as they see fit.  Any interference in this economic process quickly leads to shortages, rising prices, and civil unrest.  The purpose of President Obama signing this new Executive Order is yet unclear, however, it may coincide with information coming out of Israel yesterday that plans for a tactical or strategic strike on Iran are accelerating.  Oil prices in Europe rose over $3 a barrel for Brent crude after the Israeli actions, and US oil prices rose $2 for WTI.
    The Obama administration appears to be preparing for a long drawn out war in the Middle East, or at the very least, an expected crisis that will require the need to override Constitutional authority and claim dominion over all resources in the United States under the guise of national defense.  With the rise in Disaster Preparedness growing for both individuals and states leading up to yesterday’s Executive Order, the mood of the nation points strongly towards some event or disaster that will require massive preparations on a national as well as local scale.

    Be afraid. VERY AFRAID.

  177. The president should not have signed this bill and The congress should not have introduced and passed it for his signature.  These turkeys should be working full time on improving the economy and creating jobs  just goes to show you that they are all out of touch and have no connection with the people.  Vote the Bums out….all of them!

  178. Ladies and Gentlemen, it is time to remove the fools currently holding office from the top to the bottom of the political spectrum (including the SCOTUS). Then start all over with the Constitution with minor adjustments. 1. Term Limits ( 2, 4 years terms) on all federal elected or appointed officials; 2. No pension for any federal elected or appointed official. They can contribute to Social Security like the rest of us;  3. Once any individual has held a federal elected office for two terms, either Senate, House, VP or President they may not hold another federal elected office ever. 

  179. Well with luck this african will be out of a job in November. Wake up America he’s after ALL OF OUR Civil rights., Money, fuel, land, homes, guns and any think that he can slip past congress. 

    1. Thank you retiredo8.  I hope you can help school the unknowing young blacks that vote.  Many just don’t get it.  This whole thing is not about skin color, but unfortuneately so many can not see this or the truth.    Obama is Not a true American Black man with the same goals of freedom.   If Obama takes over all of us. black, white or purple will be inslaved

  180. How many reason’s do we need to learn obuma is a commie!He could care less for the constitution.How many reasons do we need to impeach this @#$%.. He and his cronies are taking over,this is a power grab.Obuma must be stoped.We the people must make a law that provides for no less prison for going against the constitution.This should apply to all,dem’s & rep’s. We the people can do this,we must to this.

  181. Have you ever wonderd why 50 years ago none of this would have been possible.
    Even those in goverment who were alive then are approving this. Why ?
    It is something like a wave crossing our country. A complete change to blindness.
    It is very strange, like something supernatural.

  182. 23And the ass saw the angel of the LORD standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and the ass turned aside out of the way, and went into the field: and Balaam smote the ass, to turn her into the way.  24But the angel of the LORD stood in a path of the vineyards, a wall being on this side, and a wall on that side.
     25And when the ass saw the angel of the LORD, she thrust herself unto the wall, and crushed Balaam’s foot against the wall: and he smote her again.
     26And the angel of the LORD went further, and stood in a narrow place, where was no way to turn either to the right hand or to the left.
     27And when the ass saw the angel of the LORD, she fell down under Balaam: and Balaam’s anger was kindled, and he smote the ass with a staff.
     28And the LORD opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times?
      29And Balaam said unto the ass, Because thou hast mocked me: I would there were a sword in mine hand, for now would I kill thee.
     30And the ass said unto Balaam, Am not I thine ass, upon which thou hast ridden ever since I was thine unto this day? was I ever wont to do so unto thee? and he said, Nay.
     31Then the LORD opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel of the LORD standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and he bowed down his head, and fell flat on his face.   


  183. Why not hound our Congressmen to oppose the executive


    They have 30 days from signing, to oppose, and halt it. If
    they “DON’T” oppose it, “THEN” it becomes law.


  184. I think this is partlydue to so many threats on Obama’s life.  I guess they think this will keep someone away that is really determint to shoot the creep.   It’s all about protecting Obama’s dumb ass

  185. What does that do for the protestors, or rather the union goons in the Wisconsin capitol building where by the way they caused $7 million in damages just last year ? Oh yeah this is a federal bill.

  186. what do you expect out of a president who is a communist at heart. destroying america is his plan and it is going at breakneck speed. hopefully there will be a whole lot less than 66million stupid americans this time around in november.

  187. another example of the sleeping Congress…I’m not referring to the President accusations. I’m referring to the
    Republicans who are alowing these bills to be passed. I’d like to see the votes on this bill.


  188. Our country is being destroyed from within. The US could have never been brought down by a foreign enemy but it is now crumbling under the weight of the last two presidents and both parties.

  189. Obama’s cronies in Texas started violating our Constitutional right to free speech years ago…..

    San Antonio TX Mayor Castro ( Obama campaign co-manager) , city attorney Bernard ( brother of White House Social Secretary Jeremy Bernard) and SAPD Chief William McManus are being
    sued in Federal Court for Constitutional violations after they banned a law-abiding citizen from City Hall and public meetings for almost four years in an effort to conceal public/police corruption. Along with Councilman Diego Bernal, Councilman Cris Medina, IT Director Miller, etc .they have been
    reported to the DOJ, HUD, the FBI, etc. for helping cover-up decades of grant fraud, bond fraud, theft, falsification of government documents, perjury, obstruction, theft/misuse of 911 funds ( 25% failure rate for emergency calls) , Open Meeting violations, two” frauds upon the court” – 2009 and 2013 financed with tax dollars, etc…Sadly the Feds look away and protect the guilty for Obama .

    Update: Former City Telecommunications Manager John E Foddrill Sr obtained the representation of a Dallas TX law firm and US District Judge Rodriguez has denied the City’s motion to dismiss the lawsuit stating- ” Each day that Plaintiff was allegedly barred from accessing public facilities he suffered a constitutional injury” and “the fact that for close to four years Plaintiff was prohibited from exercising his rights to free speech and assembly”.

    Download and listen to the second half of this radio program where Doc Greene interviews former San Antonio TX Telecommunications Manager John E Foddrill Sr…..John’s comments starting at the 1:00 timing mark detail three decades of theft/fraud being concealed by SAPD Chief McManus, city attorney Bernard, DA Susan Reed, Mayor Castro, Councilperson Diego Bernal, Councilperson
    Cris Medina, City IT Director Hugh Miller and other corrupt city / county officials ……citizens continue to demand that the criminals be charged.

    1. When is someone going to sue Barry Soetore in Federal Court for violating the Constitution, or for treason or fraud?

  190. You are willfully misinterpreting this law for the purpose of pushing a conspiracy that does not exist. This was was passed by the Republican-controlled House of Representatives 399-3 in February of 2012. No controversy there.

    This is an update of a law that was first passed in 1971. This law changes it to include the president’s residence or the vice president’s residence. Here is the relevant change:

    “The old law [1971] made it a federal offense to “willfully and knowingly” enter restricted buildings or grounds, now the law only specifies that one must “knowingly” enter such a space to be in violation of the law.

    The updated version [Feb 2013] specifically defines the phrase “restricted buildings or grounds” to include “the White House or its grounds, or the Vice President’s official residence or its grounds.”


    With this article you are merely feeding the insanity of people already prone to wear tin hats and see conspiracy where none exists. Pathetic.

    1. You are living in a fantacy world freedom of speech is our right thats why we live in america.your the one wearing the tin hat

    2. tom, you aren’t reading this thing!! it is clear that this law fundamentally makes it illegal, a federal offense, to speak or otherwise show your opposition to any of these people when they are conducting any sort of thing in any place at all!!

  191. This law is solid grounds for impeachment knowone can just change the constution not even president wthout pubilic knowledge and due process these are our fundamental rights of freedom that have been removed. Stand everyone and fight back

  192. You are ridiculous and sound like a criminal. Over hundred years ago it was against the law to say anything about a sitting president. Once again our education system has failed you apparently. You sound more like an anarchist than a patriot. I’ll pray for you lost soul.
