Goodbye, First Amendment: ‘Trespass Bill’ will make protest illegal

February 29, 2012
RT.com

Just when you thought the government couldn’t ruin the First Amendment any further: The House of Representatives approved a bill on Monday that outlaws protests in instances where some government officials are nearby, whether or not you even know it.

The US House of Representatives voted 388-to-3 in favor of H.R. 347 late Monday, a bill which is being dubbed the Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011. In the bill, Congress officially makes it illegal to trespass on the grounds of the White House, which, on the surface, seems not just harmless and necessary, but somewhat shocking that such a rule isn’t already on the books.…

On Voting One’s Conscience…

 

Editor’s Note:
No, dear reader, reposting of this editorial does not mean that 911truth.org specifically “endorses” Ron Paul, nor does it mean we’ve suddenly taken up any particular ideological bent. Rather, it is offered here for your consideration because Mr. Jaeger offers thoughtful commentary about one of the main reasons people are told to NOT vote their conscience. Whether you support one of the DemoPublican candidates or a third-party candidate, are boycotting the voting process until more of your fellow Americans figure this out, are in another country wondering what’s wrong with Americans, or are just contemplating the falsity of the media-defined Republican/Democrat/Right/Left nonsense paradigms through which we are told our social and political life must be interpreted, this is valuable food for thought.…

A Majority of Americans (Including Both OWS and the Tea Party) AGREE on the Most Important Issues … We Just Don’t Realize It

WashingtonsBlog

I have repeatedly demonstrated that — despite the false divide-and-conquer tactics of the mainstream parties and mainstream media — the overwhelming majority of Americans agree on the most important issues facing our country . And see this .

NO MORE BAILOUTS!

As I’ve noted since 2008 , Americans are united in their overwhelming disapproval for bailouts to the big banks.

This has remained true right up to today.

As Rassmussen found only last month (as summarized by KXLF news ):

Today’s Rasmussen Reports survey finds that most Americans don’t like bailouts for financial institutions.

By Pete Kasperowicz

TheHill.com

The House Thursday night approved the Senate version of the Patriot Act extension bill, a clean extension of three surveillance authorities until June 1, 2015.

The House finished voting at about 7:50 p.m., and approved the measure in a 250-153 vote. In the final vote, 54 Democrats voted for it, along with all but 31 Republicans.

The hastily arranged debate happened just minutes after the Senate approved the same bill by a 72-23 vote.…

911workernycsept11 Dems outraged as GOP blocks 9/11 responders health bill

May be end of the road for $7-billion aid package to heroes of 9/11

Senate Republicans on Thursday derailed a bill to aid people who got sick after
exposure to dust from the World Trade Center’s collapse in the Sept. 11 attack.

Supporters were three votes short of the 60 needed to proceed to debate and
a final vote on the bill that would have provided as much as $7.4 billion in
health care and compensation to 9/11 responders and survivors.…

Rep. Weiner blasts GOP foes of 9/11 workers’ health fund

by Brett Michael Dykes
July 30, 2010

New York Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner is plainly fired up and ready to go. In a losing battle to secure passage of a bill to fund health care and compensation for ill 9/11 rescue workers, he unleashed a tirade against what he called unprincipled GOP opponents of the measure. Watch his outburst, which concluded in him smashing down the House rostrum microphone:

The House voted down the bill, which would have provided $3.2 billion over the next 10 years to fund free health care for 9/11 rescue and recovery workers who have fallen ill from toxic smoke and debris they breathed at the World Trade Center site.…

The CIA/Likud Sinking of Jimmy Carter

By Robert Parry (A Special Report)
ConsortiumNews.com

As the Official Story of the 1980 October Surprise case crumbles — with new revelations that key evidence was hidden from investigators of a congressional task force and that internal doubts were suppressed — history must finally confront the troubling impression that remains: that disgruntled elements of the CIA and Israel’s Likud hardliners teamed up to remove a U.S. president from office.

Indeed, it is this disturbing conclusion — perhaps even more than the idea of a Republican dirty trick — that may explain the longstanding and determined cover-up of this political scandal.…

Maddow shreds Giuliani for ‘forgetting about 9/11′

By Stephen C. Webster

The former mayor of New York City has been making his rounds in U.S. media this week, trying to explain away his false claim that there were no domestic terrorist attacks on the United States during the Bush administration.

For a man often mocked as “the mayor of 9/11,” that’s an awfully bold suggestion, and one that could spell the end of his relevance in U.S.…

GOP strategist Matalin: Bush ‘inherited’ 9/11 attacks from Clinton

Update at bottom: Matalin ‘lied’ about Bush inheriting recession

No amount of spit and polish can clean the tarnish of the 9/11 attacks from the Bush legacy, but that didn’t stop GOP strategist Mary Matalin from trying.

During a Sunday appearance on CNN, Matalin attempted to prop up an analogy between the first year of George W. Bush’s presidency and that of President Barack Obama’s. Raising the specter of rising unemployment, anchor John King wondered whether Republicans have the right to attack Democrats over the economy.…

WASHINGTON — Sponsors of a bill to compensate and cover health care costs
of ailing 9/11 responders and recovery workers predicted Tuesday the House would

New York Democratic Reps. Jerrold Nadler and Carolyn Maloney, of Manhattan,
key sponsors of the measure, said the bill’s ultimate fate lies in the Senate,
where Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) has promised to introduce a companion bill.…

Introduction to the Series:

A very important case is unfolding in Minnesota–eight people are being singled out by the government for their role in the political protests at the 2008 Republican National Convention (RNC).

At the September ’08 RNC in St. Paul, war criminal John McCain and right-wing religious fundamentalist Sarah Palin were being selected as the Republican ticket for the presidential race. The national media spent endless hours on things like Palin’s unmarried pregnant daughter.…

Eric Holder Signals No Prosecutions of Bush War Criminals

By Dennis Loo
January 30, 2009
WorldCantWait.net

Attorney General nominee Eric Holder in written response to a question posed to him during his Senate confirmation hearing by Sen. Jon Kyl (R-AZ) stated:

“Prosecutorial and investigative judgments must depend on the facts, and no one is above the law. But where it is clear that a government agent has acted in ‘reasonable and good-faith reliance on Justice Department legal opinions’ authoritatively permitting his conduct, I would find it difficult to justify commencing a full-blown criminal investigation, let alone a prosecution.”

Newsweek described
this written statement as “carefully vetted by Obama’s White House lawyers.”
In other words, Holder’s statement fairly reflects Obama’s and Holder’s intentions
in this regard.…

The Battle Plan II: Sarah ‘Evita’ Palin, the Muse of the Coming Police State

by Naomi Wolf
Huffington Post – September 24,
2008 Global Research , October 3, 2008

Please understand what you are looking at when you look at Sarah “Evita” Palin. You are looking at the designated muse of the coming American police state.

 

Editor’s Note:

No, this is not some “lefty” anti-Republican commentary … this is information that should be of grave concern to every one of us. Have a look also at the American Freedom Campaign which Wolf cofounded, and her books, The End of America: A Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot and Give Me Liberty: A Handbook for American Revolutionaries

UPDATE 10/6/08: Just received a link to this TalkingStickTV interview of Naomi Wolf about her new book, “Give Me Liberty.”

 
You have to understand how things work in a closing society in order to understand “Palin Power.” A gang or cabal seizes power, usually with an affable, weak figurehead at the fore.…
