A horrifying new bill has passed through congress with 399 votes Yea, and 3 votes Nay.
Once signed by President Barack Obama, HR 347 will empower federal agents to arrest and bring felony criminal charges against citizens engaged in political protests anywhere in the USA where people protected by the secret service are present.
This bill will essentially silence protest at any major political event – in direct contravention of citizens’ First Amendment constitutional rights.
It appears the Obama legislative agenda advances in complete defiance of the US Constitution. One by one, the democratic rights that America claims to want to institute in countries subject to US military intervention, are being systematically stripped away from its own people, while the whole world watches.
