    Both parties have worked together to put it in place. The Patriot Act and DHS came in under Bush. Obama recently signed off on the NDAA.
    Here’s another nail in the freedom coffin that was just passed. In this case, the leftwingers sounded the alarm:
    A bill passed Monday in the US Congress and Thursday in the Senate would make it a felony—a serious criminal offense punishable by lengthy terms of incarceration—to participate in many forms of protest associated with the Occupy Wall Street protests of last year. Several commentators have dubbed it the “anti-Occupy” law, but its implications are far broader.
    The bill—H.R. 347, or the “Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011”—was passed by unanimous consent in the Senate, while only Ron Paul and two other Republicans voted against the bill in the House of Representatives (the bill passed 388-3). Not a single Democratic politician voted against the bill.
    The virtually unanimous passage of H.R. 347 starkly exposes the fact that, despite all the posturing, the Democrats and the Republicans stand shoulder to shoulder with the corporate and financial oligarchy, which regarded last year’s popular protests against social inequality with a mixture of fear and hostility.
    Among the central provisions of H.R. 347 is a section that would make it a criminal offense to “enter or remain in” an area designated as “restricted.”
    The bill defines the areas that qualify as “restricted” in extremely vague and broad terms. Restricted areas can include “a building or grounds where the President or other person protected by the Secret Service is or will be temporarily visiting” and “a building or grounds so restricted in conjunction with an event designated as a special event of national significance.”
    The Secret Service provides bodyguards not just to the US president, but to a broad layer of top figures in the political establishment, including presidential candidates and foreign dignitaries.
    Even more sinister is the provision regarding events of “national significance.” What circumstances constitute events of “national significance” is left to the unbridled discretion of the Department of Homeland Security. The occasion for virtually any large protest could be designated by the Department of Homeland Security as an event of “national significance,” making any demonstrations in the vicinity illegal.
    For certain, included among such events would be the Democratic and Republican National Conventions, which have been classified as National Special Security Events (NSSE), a category created under the Clinton administration. These conventions have been the occasion for protests that have been subjected to ever increasing police restrictions and repression. Under H.R. 347, future protests at such events could be outright criminalized.
    The standard punishment under the new law is a fine and up to one year in prison. If a weapon or serious physical injury is involved, the penalty may be increased to up to ten years.
    Also criminalized by the bill is conduct “that impedes or disrupts the orderly conduct of Government business or official functions” and “obstructs or impedes ingress or egress to or from any restricted building or grounds.” These provisions, even more so than the provisions creating “restricted areas,” threaten to criminalize a broad range of protest activities that were previously perfectly legal.
    In order to appreciate the unprecedented sweep of H.R. 347, it is necessary to consider a few examples:
     A wide area around the next G-20 meeting or other global summit could be designated “restricted” by the Secret Service, such that any person who “enters” a that area can be subject to a fine and a year in jail under Section 1752(a)(1) (making it a felony to enter any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority to do so).

  3. am i correct that jfk said if you make peaceful protest impossible you make violent revolt inevitable?

  4. A lazy and slothful public is allowing this to happen. America is like the Titanic. America has hit the subverted portion of government that has become an enemy of its people.
    People we must give up the drugs and partying and get involved with turning our nation in a healthier nation.
    Hank the Cat is very concerned about his/our future.

  5. Hank the Cat is the best choice!

  6. we have at 5 living Presidents that belong behind bars,many,many congressmen-can’t verify sources but read whitehatsreport.com they have been blocking the site every chance they get today but keep trying! Given history,it all makes sense. I believe the head of the snake has many heads,soros and Bush Sr are two of them

  7. Even worse TSA is now expanding to other areas besides the airport. Is this Obama’s version of the brownshirts? What happens when they are virtually everywhere, harrassing us on the streets at bus stations, train stations, the Mall parking lot ? It’s time for a real revolt
