Will YOU Save Freedom in 2014? Catch The Tea Party Wave

 

I have been following HR 347 & 1794.  I hope that others are doing the same too.  The person who wrote this is much more knowledgeable than I am.  I liked the way that this person highlighted the areas & then explained what colors they were using for what was being said in the article.  If this is too long for you to read, then perhaps, you might want to put it aside for a day & start out fresh on it tomorrow.

 

Subject: This should shake your timbers

 

I wonder how we can ever get good, solid conservatives who believe in a abide by our Constitution  in office?  

 

There were only 3 representatives that voted against this bill that is worded so generally that being in the wrong place at the wrong time can get us arrested.     

 

This is a long article, but I've highlighted what I think is it in a nutshell.    (Note:   If I understand what I read below, there are NO records on how your senators voted.  I've highlighted this is grey.)

HR 347 & S 1794 aka The ‘Trespass Bill’ of 2011 Criminalizes Protest…

 

The latest assault on the Bill of Rights are H.R. 347 (and it’s companion senate bill S. 1794); aka the “Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011.”  Sounding more like an appropriations bill authorizing monies for federal grounds LANDSCAPING–

 

However, this bill, better known to those in the DC beltway as the ‘Trespass Bill’–potentially makes peaceable protest anywhere in the U.S.–a federal felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

 

The legislators responsible for bringing this legislative excrement to life are Representative Tom Rooney (R-Fla.) in the House of Representatives and Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT.) leading the Senate version.  (Source: http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/BILLS-112hr347enr/pdf/BILLS-112hr347en...) (Source: http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?b=112-1794)

Rep. Thomas Rooney–HR 347 Sponsor…

Rep. Rooney, the proud sponsor of HR 347 has served in the Army as a JAG Corps attorney.  Since 2002 he has taught law at West Point with his specialty being Criminal Law and–Constitutional Law.  (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Rooney_(politician) )  Ironically, this ‘constitutional law’ professor has no qualms criminalizing protest and free speech.

H.R. 347 & Senate Companion Bill S. 1794–Criminalizing protest and free speech…

This bill makes protest of any type potentially a federal offense with anywhere from a year to 10 years in federal prison, providing it occurs in the presence of elites brandishing Secret Service protection, or during an officially defined ‘National Special Security Event’ (NSSE).  NSSE’s ,( an invention of Bill Clinton’s) are events which have been deemed worthy of Secret Service protection, which previously received no such treatment.  Justified through part of ‘Presidential Decision Directive 62 in 1998;  Bill Clinton created an additional class of special events explicitly under the authority of the US Secret Service.

Past NSSE Events Such as …SuperBowl XXXVI….

  

 Past NSSE events included the funerals of Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan, and the national security concern that was–Superbowl XXXVI.  Other NSSE protected events include the Academy Awards and the 2008 Democratic and Republican National Conventions.  I suppose presidential candidates, no matter how insane they may be are deserving as much security protection and Brad and Angelina’s sex life.

 

 The dangerous part of this ‘executive order’ lies not in the triviality of a SuperBowl receiving taxpayer funded Secret Service protection–but in the convenience manufactured for any President desperate to hide deliberations of groups like the G-8, the G-20 and the World Trade Organization.  The classification of such events as NSSE–insures the rich and powerful against any pesky accountability or transparency to the unwashed minions–namely the US public.  HR 347 & S. 1794 insulates such events as the G-8, WTO and presidential conventions against tough questions and politically justified protests.   (Source: http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Special_Security_Event    )

 

3 Sole Dissenters Against HR 347

  The House vote tally which took place 02/28/12,  was 338 for and 3 against.  The three dissenters were Rep.Paul Broun R-Georgia, Rep. Justin Amash R-Michigan and Rep. Keith Ellison D-Minnesota.  Rep. Ron Paul was reported earlier as having voted against the bill, but that was based on the original vote conducted 02/28/11.  Rep. Ron Paul ABSTAINED on the final vote. (source: http://www.opencongress.org/vote/2012/h/73)

 Rep. Amash, a rising star in the Tea Party, explained his position on Facebook…

”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 its illegal.  (It expands the law by changing “willfully and knowingly” to just “knowingly” with respect to the mental state required to be charged with a crime.” ___Rep. Justin Amash (Source: http://reason.com/blog/2012/03/does-hr-347-the-trespass-bill-change...)

 

So, Amash as one of the three dissenters has no problem with criminalizing protest on the ‘royal’ grounds of the Congress or the White House, or even a hotel hosting a fundraiser where legislative aristocracy are protected by the Secret Service–his objection lies with the average tourist unwittingly stumbling onto ‘hallowed’ ground occupied by legally anointed royalty from our government.

 

This bill can be found in pdf form at the following url : (http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/BILLS-112hr347enr/pdf/BILLS-112hr347en...).

 

As you can see, copies were sent both to Speaker of the House Boehner and Vice-President Biden, subsequently–any claim of rogue congressmen or senators running amuck ranges from  disingenuous at best to plain, calloused, obvious lies.  Frankly, most members of the House and Senate regarded these two bills as a procedural duty, never questioning the ramifications of this anti-democratic action.

 

Rooney’s defense of the indefensible–criminalizing dissent…

 

Rooney’s communication director, Michael Mahaffey dismissed any concerns about civil liberties violations caused by H.R. 347 as…”a whole lot of kerfuffle over nothing.  This (HR 347) doesn’t affect anyone’s right to protest anywhere at any time. Ever.” (Source: http://reason.com/blog/2012/03/does-hr-347-the-trespass-bill-change...)

 

Mahaffey further added that this bill is nothing more than a benign ‘DC-centric update’ of Section 1752 of title 18, United States Code, designed to safeguard persons under Secret Service protection.  Blandly attributing HR 347 as an extension of that protection to the DC area (where such protections fall under the scope of local trespassing ordinances)–Mahaffey explained that

…”right now it’s not a federal violation to jump the fence and run across the White House lawn, this bill makes it a federal violation.”

 

Mahaffey further claimed that this change was requested by the Secret Service itself.  (Source:http://reason.com/blog/2012/03/does-hr-347-the-trespass-bill-change...)  To his credit Mahaffey did answer my inquiry with a carefully worded email, explaining further that this bill only offers consistent protection for those requiring Secret Service details such as the President, Vice-President.  At the surface the explanation seemed reasonable until closer examination revealed vague terms in the bill regarding the term “knowingly” , “disruptive conduct” and “impede or disrupt the orderly conduct of Government business or offical functions.”  (Source: http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/BILLS-112hr347enr/pdf/BILLS-112hr347en...) Furthermore, neither Rep. Rooney or Mahaffey actually answered my question regarding legal precedent, legal case citations, and associated theories.  We are merely supposed to take their word for it.

 

Sloppy Legislation…Vague Wording

 

The problem with Rep. Rooney’s response via Michael Mahaffey lies in the very nature of protest.  Mahaffey claims that this bill does not trample the constitutionally protected right to protest–yet the bill itself criminalizes ‘disruptive conduct’ in such vague terms that a 7th grader disrupting visiting dignitaries receiving Secret Service protection, over any issue–(no matter how trivial), such as school uniforms–would be potentially guilty of a federal felony.  What Rooney, and so many government elites cynically ignore is the very nature of protest.  Protest in its very nature, is INTENDED to disrupt government business as usual, for without such disruption the protest would be as effective as a leaky condom.

 

Congressmen like Justin Amash who quibble over the omission of the word “willfully” as justification for arresting and charging citizens with the federal felony of ‘trespassing’; on grounds where a Secret Service protected person happens to be–miss the point.  Amash is correct in noting that the omission of the word “willfully” represents an unfair burden to the citizen.  In legalese, this omission creates a situation where anyone can be charged with a federal felony for ‘trespassing’ on grounds shared by a person or group receiving Secret Service protection (including NSSE’s); EVEN IF THE ‘TRESPASSER’ HAD NO KNOWLEDGE OF SUCH PROTECTED PERSONS BEING PRESENT.  In theory, anyplace where there is a protest–could also be the setting for mass felony charges against constitutionally protected behavior such as the right to protest.

Unfortunately, Amash takes in no further.  What he fails to recognize is the constitutional right to protest, to petition a government for redress of grievances.  In short, this Congress and this President have established themselves as would be aristocrats and monarchs.  This bill represents a legislative Maginot Line separating Congress, the President and the corporations who appear to own them–from the rest of us rabble.  Amash’s offering is tantamount to an obese glutton offering crumbs to the starving–symbolically empty and useless.

 

The Senate’s Response….Dead Silence

 

To date, no response has been received by the Senate sponsor of HR 347′s companion bill Senate Bill 1794, Senator Richard Blumenthal.  In fact, this bill was passed in the Senate by ‘unanimous consent,’ which is significant in terms of senatorial accountability and transparency.  To quote www.govtrack.us…

…”This bill passed in the Senate by unanimous consent.  A record of each senator’s position was not kept.”  (Source:http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=s112-1794)  

 

How very convenient for each senator that their position was never recorded–anywhere.  No accountability and certainly no transparency–just gross arrogance. ( The House of Representatives DID have a record of each representative’s vote.  Here is the link to the House vote record : ( http://www.govtrack.us/congress/vote.xpd?vote=h2011-149).

 

The following link can be used to contact any member of the US Senate regarding their vote and the lack of transparency on such an important issue. (http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm)

 

The Senate rule of ‘unanimous consent’ is defended as a method of expediting legislative business otherwise considered inconsequential.  The Senate’s ‘volume of precedents’ explains the nature of unanimous consent:

…”Whereas Senate Rules permit virtually unlimited debate, and very few restrictions on the right to offer amendments, these (unanimous consent) agreements usually limit debate and the right of senators to offer amendments.”  (Source :http://www.senate.gov/legislative/common/briefing/Senate_legislativ...)

 

Though a majority of Senate business is dispensed with using ‘unanimous consent’–it is inherently troubling that our Senators view the dismissal of our basic right to ‘peaceably assembly’ as -inconsequential.

 

In Conclusion…

In this age of ever increasing police militarization and shrinking civil liberties both here at home and worldwide; the US government under President Obama has morphed into a third Bush term.  No longer content to stonewall the public with empty slogans issuing from ‘empty suits’–the political class has degraded to writing obviously illegitimate ‘laws’ in a desperate attempt to crush any dissent.  As this bill made its way through the illustrious halls of Congress–no open discussion was entertained for an ENTIRE YEAR.  Not a single member of Congress spoke out against this obscenity.  Not a single member of Congress alerted the press.  Not a single member of Congress contacted legal advocacy groups such as the ACLU, Bill of Rights Defense Committee or the National Lawyer’s Guild.  The silence deafening– if not conspiratorial.

 

Congress Shall Make No Law…

Just this past year we saw the President who campaigned on ‘hope’ and ‘change’–announce some galling changes, with Congress (for the most part) rubber stamping each and every death blow to what remains of the Bill of Rights.  President Obama has claimed the right to declare anyone a ‘terrorist’ or ‘terrorist sympathizer’ based on nothing more than presidential opinion, and order their assassination. (Source: http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/10/05/us-cia-killlist-idUSTRE79...)   No evidence is required–at least that the public can see.  We are told to blissfully ‘trust’ our public officials even when they are unworthy of such trust.  The galling fact that Rep. Tom Rooney has taught CONSTITUTIONAL LAW to cadets at West Point is chilling in light of this sneaky ‘end-run’ around the 1st amendment.  In case Rep. Rooney has forgotten that amendment–I’ll quote it here :

 

“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 TO PEACEABLY ASSEMBLE , AND TO PETITION THE GOVERNMENT FOR A REDRESS OF GRIEVANCES.”

 

Perhaps Congress and the President will find their inner patriot and reverse this vile stripping of our rights.  It could happen.  By the way–can anyone pass the Prozac?

“The States then being the parties to the constitutional compact, and in their sovereign capacity, it follows of necessity, that there can be no tribunal above their authority, to decide in the last resort, whether the compact made by them be violated; and consequently that as the parties to it, they must themselves decide in the last resort, such questions as may be of sufficient magnitude to require their interposition.” – James Madison

Only in America could liberals talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000 a plate campaign fund raising event.

We need to demythologize guns before the liberal attempt to create a totemic fear of them succeeds. If the gun control mentality promoting fear of guns themselves becomes our national mentality, we would turn the clock back to the days when a warrior class ruled over the people because only they had the confidence and expertise to deploy the means of defense and coercion. The gun control agenda will turn us into a people too timid to defend themselves from our would-be masters. – Alan Keyes
