Once signed, HR 347 will empower federal agents to arrest and bring felony criminal charges against citizens engaged in political protests anywhere in the USA.
OUTLAWING THE OCCUPY MOVEMENT: HR 347 MAKES FREE SPEECH A FELONY
The First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America reads as follows:
"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."
At 7:03pm ET on Tuesday, 28 February 2012, our 112th Congress violated this covenant with the American people by voting 399 to 3 in favor of H.R. 347, a bill which breezed through the Senate with unanimous consent and now lacks only corporate fascist puppet President Barack Obama's signature to become law.
The three patriots who voted Nay were Paul Broun (R-GA-10), Justin Amash (R-MI-3) and Ron Paul (R-TX-14).
The traitors who voted Yea are listed here:

Euphemistically titled the "Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act" and referred to by our corporate-controlled mainstream media as a "non-controversial bill", a more truthful moniker for HR 347 would be the "First Amendment Rights Eradication Act". As Representative Amash lamented on his Facebook page:
"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. [H.R. 347] 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... [And to] show you the extent to which the public is misled and misinformed about the legislation we are voting on, read one prominent media outlet's coverage of the same bill:
The report mischaracterizes not only current law but also the changes proposed by the bill."
The full text of H.R. 347 is available here:
Obviously aimed at the Occupy Movement, these modifications to U.S. Code Title 18 Section 1752 will seriously diminish [one of the American citizen's most basic and important Constitutional rights,] the right of American citizens to petition their Government for a redress of grievances by outlawing protests where key government officials or other VIP's may be nearby. Federal law enforcement agents will be empowered to bring these charges against Americans engaged in political protests anywhere in the country, and violators will face criminal penalties that include imprisonment for up to 10 years.
Welcome to Fourth Reich Amerika...
[It is most disheartening to find that the men and women we-the-American-people just voted into the 112th Congress in 2010 (overwhelmingly Republicans) have just turned around and betrayed us. Yes, the 112th Congress, by passing this law, and soon by the acting President by signing HR 347 into law, has and will have betrayed their oath of office; to preserve and defend the U.S. Constitution.
Can there be any better example than this that the U.S. government has been infiltrated and taken over by an anti-God, anti-Christian, anti-Constitutional political group of men and women? They are a satanic imposter government posing as U.S. government officials. Call them what you will; I know them as Z.O.G. (Zionist Occupational Government). This is a fascist government; a government working with large corporations to destroy our rule of law and subjugate, and annihilate the American people. They have been infiltrating the U.S. government for well over 100 years, gaining strength in numbers little by little while the American people have been busy fighting and dieing in their wars and being distracted by thousands of other things.
All Americans now KNOW that all but three Congressmen ARE traitors to the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights, and the American people. The question is, what can we do about it now? Our best chance at overturning this present unjust law is the shine the light of truth on it, and fight it in the courts. We should beseech Constitutional advocates such as Jay A. Sekulow (Attorney and Chief Counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice) and Andrew P. Napolitano (former New Jersey Superior Court Judge and former political and legal analyst for Fox News Channel) to represent us.
Our only chance at getting our Constitution and country back is to expose the 112th Congress for the traitors they are and either recall or vote-out all traitorous Congressmen, Senators and President from office, and elect and reelect moral and honorable people, such as Rep. Ron Paul, who HAS and WILL continue to defend the U.S. Constitution. Meanwhile, we should continue to study and require that our children study the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights, because if we don't we will not know what is at stake or what we are fighting for.]
[The three American patriots who should be honored and revered for holding fast in their sacred pledge to preserve and defend the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights by voting Nay on H.R. 347 are Paul Broun (R-GA-10), Justin Amash (R-MI-3) and Ron Paul (R-TX-14). God and the American people thanks you.]
