White House Signs H.R. 347 - Open Ended Protest-Limiting Bill

Obama signs anti-protest Trespass Bill
Only days after clearing Congress, US President Barack Obama signed his name to H.R. 347 on Thursday, officially making it a federal offense to cause a disturbance at certain political events — essentially criminalizing protest in the States.

Under H.R. 347, which has more commonly been labeled the Trespass Bill by Congress, knowingly entering a restricted area that is under the jurisdiction of Secret Service protection can garner an arrest. The law is actually only a slight change to earlier legislation that made it an offense to knowingly and willfully commit such a crime. Under the Trespass Bill’s latest language change ["willfully" has been stricken from H.R. 347], however, someone could end up in law enforcement custody for entering an area [i.e. without actually knowing, or unwillfully] that they don’t realize is Secret Service protected and “engages in disorderly or disruptive conduct” or “impede[s] or disrupt[s] the orderly conduct of Government business or official functions.”

The Criminalization of Protest: Say Goodbye To Free Speech in America

There are already many problems with the bill as it does not attempt to define what “imped[ing] or disrupt[ing] the orderly conduct of government business or official functions” is, nor does it specify what “government business” is or what an “official function” is. This vagueness will allow for the US government to effectively stifle protest and free speech, thus criminalizing such actions like the upcoming Occupy Chicago anti-NATO/G-8 protests. In addition to this, such a law will make it impossible for Americans to exercise their First Amendment rights when “government business” is being attended to or “official functions” are occurring.

Presidential hopefuls Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum are now officially covered under Secret Service protection, making it a federal offense to disrupt a campaign stop. That means whether it’s by way of a glitter bomb protest or causing a disturbance on the same Holiday Inn hotel floor that Santorum is staying in.

Liberty Lost: H.R. 347 Threatens First Amendment Freedoms
The legislation makes it a federal offense to disrupt or protest at any place or event attended by any person with secret service protection. The bill would make it a criminal offense to trespass on any “restricted buildings and grounds,” and would seriously hamper any future political protests near the White House, or anywhere else high ranking government officials meriting secret service protection may be. Those found in violation would face 1-10 years imprisonment...But what about the Constitution of the United States of America? What about the First Amendment?

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Quote from 'Obama signs anti-protest bill' (article at 1st link above):

"And before you forget, the president can now detain you for getting too close to his front yard, order your assassination if the country considers you a threat and lock you away for life with no charge if you’re alleged to be a terrorist. You, on the other hand, can’t yell obscenities at Newt Gingrich without risking [a federal offense] arrest."

See the BIG picture in all this. What is being done to this country is being done to every country on the face of the earth. It is the deconstruction of the existing world system of sovereign nation-states in order to replace it with a Zionist global dictatorship - which will turn out to be the 666 kabalist-kingdom of Antichrist. There is no other explanation.
