  • Question on possible new obama law....

    My cousin just sent me an email stating that Obama passed a law back on March 10, 2012. According to her, this new law makes it illegal to protest obama wherever he is at. If you ask a question he does not like, you can be arrested and jailed for up to a year.

    I tried to find a link for this but could only find questionable sources. Anyone know if this is true?

    I'm sure he would like it to be true. Stuff like this I would not believe, and tell the person claiming it to prove it with some sort of evidence. When people don't like someone, they find it easy to believe anything bad about them. Thats probably the time to be even more diligent to research whatever you hear.

    I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel, because they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land.

      I think you are referring to HR 347...

      There are several articles on it... below is a critical take from Slate...

      http://www.slate.com/articles/news_a...e_speech_.html

      ....The law purports to update an old law, Section 1752 of Title 18 of the United States Code, that restricted areas around the president, vice president, or any others under the protection of the Secret Service. The original law was enacted in 1971 and amended in 2006. At first blush, the big change here is that while the old law made it a federal offense to "willfully and knowingly" enter a restricted space, now prosecutors need only show that you did it "knowingly"—that you knew the area was restricted, even if you didn’t know it was illegal to enter the space. This has been characterized in some quarters as a small technical change that hardly warrants an arched eyebrow, much less a protest.

      But it’s important to understand what has changed since the original law was enacted in 1971, because it shows how much a tiny tweak to the intent requirement in a statute can impact the free speech of everyone......

          Here is a FOX NEWS video(3.33) with Judge Napolitano explaining the legality of this new law.

          This is a new law signed by Obama in early March 2012 which makes it illegal to protest in his presence. Regardless of where you stand politically, this is very scary.

          The law means that wherever Obama is you do not have a right to ask him anything you want to. His secret service can have you arrested, fined, and imprisoned for more than a YEAR if you ask him something he doesn't like or doesn't want to answer.

                  Still don't see this as big, and we've seen it in action. Anytime some heckler makes trouble, holds up their silly little signs, shout their silly little slogans, they'll be rounded up, kicked out, and charged with something. I fail to see a difference in how this will be carried out, its already illegal to do these things. Its a technical difference in the law, but people trying to disrupt a Presidential speech are already guilty, they know what they are doing. Like I said, theres hardly nothing Obama can do that won't be spinned to him being evil incarnate. Other Presidents will get in there and no one will mind. We'll protest this perpetual candidate at the voting booth, where it counts.

                      The big deal is the change makes it a felony to protest, hold up a sign they don't like or even be in the vicinity where a secret service agent is "protecting" someone...and it can be "anyone" that the President assigned an agent to protect. The agent doesn't not have to wear his badge or a big sign that states he is present for the law to be in effect. So for example if BO assigned a secret service agent to protect a member of the Tea Party at a gathering it will not be announced. If people show up holding signs that are disagreeable to the agent he can then arrest them on a felony charge. It seems that BO has very thin skin and doesn't believe we should have the right to assemble or protest. The best way to stay clear of the law is to stay home and keep your mouth shut and don't write or say anything that he might find offensive. Which is the intent of the changes to the old law. He wants us to be afraid to speak out for fear of going to jail. He is a dictator in disguise. I saw Fox News and Judge Napolotano explain this the day after it passed.

                        I posted the link above, but below is the actual text describing the transgression punishable. I don't think some of the descriptions of possible infractions given in earlier posts, would apply.

                        § 1752. Restricted building or grounds
                        ‘‘(a) Whoever—
                        ‘‘(1) knowingly enters or remains in any restricted building
                        or grounds without lawful authority to do so;
                        ‘‘(2) knowingly, and with intent to impede or disrupt the
                        orderly conduct of Government business or official functions,
                        engages in disorderly or disruptive conduct in, or within such
                        proximity to, any restricted building or grounds when, or so
                        that, such conduct, in fact, impedes or disrupts the orderly
                        conduct of Government business or official functions;
                        ‘‘(3) knowingly, and with the intent to impede or disrupt
                        the orderly conduct of Government business or official functions,
                        obstructs or impedes ingress or egress to or from any restricted
                        building or grounds; or
                        ‘‘(4) knowingly engages in any act of physical violence
                        against any person or property in any restricted building or
                        grounds;
                        or attempts or conspires to do so, shall be punished as provided
                        in subsection (b).

                          With all respect to the Judge, it doesn't matter. The things enshrined in the first amendment about protest can't be touched. (as always, they can try, they'll be beat back by the courts) If one causes any sort of mischief, deserved or not, in fairly close proximity to the President of the United States, expect a swift and harsh response. You are extending the thought to "protesting" anywhere, at anytime. I see all kinds of people, say all kinds of unflattering, salacious, truthful, viscous, and any other way to describe what people say about Mr. Obama, every single day. Whatever way you are interpreting this, clearly its not the case.

                            I can't believe some of y'all!!! Just because "it" may be against the constitution/illegal/unethical or whatever, you think this "Chicago" product won't try it???

                            And this still after "Obamacare" and the Catholic contraceptive fiasco????????

                            Get your head out of the sand folks, cause if the Zero gets a second go at the POTUS, he sure does not have to worry about who he stabs in the back since he won't be eligible for re-election again; and he will make sure that there will be no 2016 election; assuming that we actually have a '12 election.!!

                            JMHO, but based on observed actions the past 3 1/2 years!
                            Liberalism is a FATAL disease, which should be obvious to all by now!!

                              I don't think anyones head is in the sand around here, pal. We've got hundreds of articles and thousands of posts all about him. Lets see, its been law for over a month, no difference. If by chance we make it to October, and still no dictator Obama sending out the brownshirts to round up all them bad people who talk bad about him, I'll bump this thread. If theres still no change, I win. We should be much more concerned about what he actually says he wants to do, rather than our thoughts and imaginations of what we think he will do, especially ones this fundamentally radical. And really, we have two other branches of gubment, they will balance him out with stuff that is clearly unconstitutional.
