An act has recently been passed with overwhelming support from both parties, and quietly signed by the president, that empowers secret service agents to disallow free speech in “zones” designated arbitrarily by them where they are present.
Under the new law, any political protest in a public place could be forbidden.
Defiance will be treated as a felony.
Judge Andrew Napolitano points out in this video that the law is an abridgment of the First Amendment to the Constitution which guarantees free speech.
