How Did Another Assault on Our Rights Slip Through?


Congress passes bill severely curtailing civil liberties

Confronting the Israel Lobby

H.R.347, the `Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011′ has just been passed.

This makes it a federal offense, with imprisonment of at least up to one year, for any “unauthorized” person to enter or remain in a building — or the grounds — where the Secret Service is present or where there is an “an event designated as a special event of national significance.”

In other words, it is now a felony to have a demonstration near presidential candidates or a visiting head of state such as Benjamin Netanyahu. In fact, it is a felony to even be on the grounds where they are temporarily visiting, say at a campaign stop – even if you don’t yet know that this has now become an off-limits area.

By the way among events that have been “designated as a special event of national significance” are the Super Bowl and the Democratic and Republican National Conventions.

The bill passed 388-to-3. Now it awaits Obama…..
