Over the course of his presidency, Barack Obama has been slowly weaponizing government agencies as a means of stripping away the constitutional rights of American citizens, with aparticular focus on the First Amendment.
The president’s latest assault on free speech comes in the form of a new “rule” from the U.S. Forest Service that requires reporters to buy a permit, which costs $1,500, in order to take pictures or capture video in federal wilderness areas. Those who fail to purchase a permit will, of course, be heavily fined for not falling in line with the new regulation.
According to TPNN, the rule even prevents reporters from shooting footage on their iPhones, and the vague language in the law enables it to be loosely interpreted, giving the Forest Service the ability to only grant journalists of their choosing a permit, enabling them to control the type of news that’s released to the general public.
