    In a terse online statement, the White House has confirmed that Barack Obama has signed into law an update of restrictions around the White House, the vice president’s resident and other locations – a move critics say signals the “end to free speech.”

    The White House said yesterday Obama “signed into law: H.R. 347, the ‘Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011,’ which makes it a federal crime to enter or remain knowingly in any restricted area of the White House, the vice president’s official residence, or their respective grounds without lawful authority.”

    The critics say there’s more to the bill than that.

    Comment: Obama has turned out to be even worse that Bush, who was worse than Clintong. But the Obama bots just can't stop loving their master. Well, because they have PC mind conditioning and Obama looks black so he can't do anything wrong in their minds otherwise they would be racists and have to hate themselves. Oh the PC double mind

    It means the resolution was introduced in the House, as opposed to the Senate.
    Regardless of who's in "control".

    Yep. It's law. So it will be a Felony now to Trespass or stay past one's welcome, wherever the Pres or VP is. Sorta sucks. In can come down hard on protestors, in a hard way, harder than they realize.
