Congressional resisters and opposers must now look over their shoulders, for censorship of their Special Orders sessions and their government paid communiques to constituents, called "franking."
U.S. Representative, John Carter of Texas has taken the lead, to tell Americans of one of the latest abrogations of the Constitution on the part of the Soros/Obama/Pelosi regime. Keep in mind that they tried to ram through their Cloward-Piven health control sabatoge, before Congress and the People even had the opportunity to scrutinize their Healthkill Bill. I.O. quotes Rep. Carter's news release, dated July 27, 2009.
Carter Calls for Special Orders on Capitol Grounds if Democrats Again Censor Floor SpeechesSee the explanation by Rep. Carter, given to Fox News' Megyn Kelly.
(WASHINGTON, DC) – House Republicans will deliver speeches defending freedom of speech even if Democrat leaders attempt another "gag" scheme, says Republican Conference Secretary John Carter, who has scheduled a news conference for that purpose this evening on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol.
"We will not allow House Democrats another attempt to silence the voice of political opposition," says Carter, whose scheduled speeches criticizing transparency in the House two weeks ago were blocked after Democrats voted to shut down the House rather than allow Republicans to speak during Special Orders. Special Orders speeches are broadcast live nationwide on CSPAN.
Tonight, Carter and other House Members are scheduled to debate this past week’s attempt to censor criticism of Democrats’ controversial health care reform package by Members of Congress. Democrat leaders have ordered a stop to distribution of a flow-chart graph of the plan, and ordered Carter to change his reference to the plan from a "government-run health care plan," to a "public option health care plan", to be consistent with Democrat propaganda.
"This is about far more than just House rules," says Carter, a former Texas judge. "If we allow Congress to be politically censored then freedom of speech for the public and the press will soon be undermined as well. This is a fight to preserve the U.S. Constitution’s Bill of Rights, the Rule of Law, and freedom itself against those who would regulate it all away if we let them."

Apparently, members of the House were allowed their Special Orders session, shown below. There, they further expounded upon this assault of the First Amendment rights of some of the most important speakers this nation has, members of Congress. Upon what rights will Speaker Pelosi -- or someone else -- put the hammer down again? (That is, in addition to the onslaught since 1973, upon America's most fundamental, most trampled upon, Right to Life.)
The Marxofascist insurgency tests the waters again, to see what control and intimidation they might get away with, and to measure what reaction they provoke. I.O. will lay out this behavior in a subsequent post. Perhaps it began with the Obama presidential campaign's caucus thuggery and their manipulation of government and law enforcement personnel, in Missouri.
