I hate to say I told you so, but I told you so.
In a piece I wrote called Erasing Protestors From The Constitution, I outlined how H.R. 347 could be used (would be is actually much more accurate) to eliminate your free speech and your right of free assembly. Come on, you recall, it was sold as a basic White House and government building trespass law. But when we examined it carefully, we learned it had a lot more teeth than that. It has to do with the pesky little word “proximity” and how a measurement for proximity was conveniently left out of the bill. Coming back to you now? Well, the supreme ruler signed the bill into law March 9th, and hot damn, just 12 days later don’t you know, we have our first example of the law as it was actually intended.
The supreme ruler was in New Mexico on March 21st, trying to salvage his declining poll numbers by chatting it up about how much of an oil man he really is at heart. What concerns us is what occurred prior to the teleprompter gospel hour. After having to change their original landing destination because they caught wind of a protest at the airport, the regime re-worked the flight plan for an alternative landing. Not to be outdone, our angry Patriot heroes re-set their compasses, too. In a game of cat and mouse, the event logistics had to be worked and re-worked.

When the US Secret Service discovered that the enterprising group of our Southeast New Mexico Patriots had, also, switched their plans and would drive to Roswell to engage in peaceful and Constitutionally allowed dissent against the Obama policies of the destruction of the United States of America, the SS began to put their respective feet down. First, the SS made a strong request that the anti-Obama rally not occur…at all. When the TEA Party members advised them that they still planned to do so, it was announced that the main road (Earl Cummings Loop) into and out of the Roswell airport would be closed. In other words, only the planned Obama sycophants, adherents and Adoration Groups will be allowed in…all others no longer have any free speech.
Putting the somewhat inflammatory vocabulary to the side, the point is clear. The government, using its’ new power from H.R. 347, closes down a road so no cardboard carrying, slogan singing folks can get close enough to the cameras to show their discontent to the rest of the country. The finished product for the evening news is the supreme ruler doing his lip-service thing at the mic with no dissenters in the camera shots. Presto, all is well in Obamerika. To me, this the exact same staged propaganda puppet-show we see from Iran, China and other dictatorial regimes. What do you think?
And with the Defense Authorization Act of 2012, I’m concerned I may have to write a column soon called Erased American. Are you?
