‘Trespass Bill’ Would Violate Peaceful Assembly Rights

New bill passed by Congress makes it a felony to protest or assemble nearby protected government officials

by John Glaser, February 28, 2012

The House of Representatives approved a bill on Monday that outlaws protests or civilian intrusions in any area where government officials are nearby, tearing away at the First Amendment right to peaceably assemble.

The new legislation would make it a federal offense for anyone to protest or assemble without permission on grounds where the Secret Service is protecting a government official or any building or grounds restricted in conjunction with an event designated as a special event of national significance.”

The language of the bill is incredibly broad and open to the interpretation of prosecutors. Starting with making it illegal to trespass on the grounds of the White House, the grounds or buildings included as off-limits even cover those that the President – or whatever other official protected by the Secret Service – is residing temporarily. It would even include a peaceful protest outside a presidential candidate’s concession speech, for example.

Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) was one of only three in the House to vote against the bill. On his official Facebook account on Tuesday, Rep. Amash wrote, “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 it’s illegal.”

“Some government officials may need extraordinary protection to ensure their safety. But criminalizing legitimate First Amendment activity — even if that activity is annoying to those government officials — violates our rights,” he added.

The bill already passed the Senate on February 6 and has only to be signed by President Obama to become law. The government already has inordinate ability to crush free speech, silence protesters, and arrest civilians peacefully assembling, but this legislation would mark the beginning of the end of the First Amendment.

In a very recent paper by Colorado state university professor Philip Cafaro titled Climate ethics and population policy, "global warming" is fraudulently being portrayed as the earth's greatest calamity- and once again, the finger is pointed at humanity as the prime evil-doer. Echoing the UN's debunked Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the professor paints a picture of gloom and doom (page 57):

Colorado state university professor Philip Cafaro."Scientists now speak of humanity's increased demands and impacts on the globe as ushering in a new geological epoch: the Anthropocene. Such selfish and destructive appropriation of the resources of the Earth can only be described as interspecies genocide."

He speaks of a new geological epoch, an "Anthropocene". He off course forgets to mention that if there's one thing constant about the climate is that it changes constantly. Furthermore, the idea that CO2 emissions have any significant impact on the earth's atmosphere has really been put back on the fiction-shelve where it belongs.

The Schmallenberg virus causes lambs to be born dead or with serious deformities such as fused limbs and twisted necks, which mean they cannot survive.

Scientists are urgently trying to find out how the disease, which also affects cattle, spreads and how to fight it, as the number of farms affected increases by the day.

So far, 74 farms across southern and eastern England have been hit by the virus, which arrived in this country in January.

A thousand farms in Europe have reported cases since the first signs of the virus were seen in the German town of Schmallenberg last summer.
