Breaking News… FCC has Diversity Czar Aimed To Shut Down Conservative Radio

http://hotair.com/archives/2009/08/14/fairness-doctrine-raises-its-ugly-head-under-new-fcc-diversity-czar/

(CNSNews.com) – Mark Lloyd, newly appointed Chief Diversity Officer of the Federal Communications Commission, has called for making private broadcasting companies pay licensing fees equal to their total operating costs to allow public broadcasting outlets to spend the same on their operations as the private companies do. LINK

“Local public broadcasters and regional and national communications operations should be required to encourage and broadcast diverse views and programs,” wrote Lloyd. “These programs should include coverage of all local, state and federal government meetings, as well as daily news and public issues programming.  (see link above for complete story).

Say Goodbye to the Family Farm

http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h2749/show

Congressman Dingell (D-MI) is the sponsor of this bill – CONTACT HIM AND YOUR REP TODAY TO STOP THIS BILL:

contact info for Dingell:

 http://www.house.gov/dingell/contact.shtml

This bill proposes greater FDA regulatory powers over the national food supply and food providers, namely granting it the authority to regulate how crops are raised and harvested, to quarantine a geographic area, to make warrantless searches of business records, and to establish a national food tracing system. Concurrently, the bill would impose annual registration fees of $500 on all facilities holding, processing, or manufacturing food and require that such facilities also engaged in the transport or packing of food maintain pedigrees of the origin and previous distribution history of the food. The bill is an enhancement to H.R.759, and to a lesser extent, H.R. 857, previously proposed food safety bills in the 111th Congress. It is also co-sponsored by the same Representatives as the latter two bills, although new to the line of support is Rep. Henry Waxman, chair of the House Energy and Commerce committee.

Dems and drug companies team up against… the voters? at Washington Examiner
President Obama heads to Montana for a town hall Friday, with anther one in Colorado on Saturday. Including his stop in New Hampshire, the president has chosen three of the most libertarian states in which to make his argument for a big government plan. While his team would say it’s just another example of the president dealing with opponents head-on, one starts to wonder if there isn’t a hope that Obama will have the chance to face off with, as the DNC calls them, a “Deather.” New Hampshire produced none as the selected questioners were saccharine-sweet, but today might be the day that the White House gives the microphone to a Walter Sobchak-type. The risk is another “spread the wealth around” gaffe by Obama. The reward would be the chance to show the president suffering for his efforts, but still willing to engage with a country not-quite worthy of him. The worse things get for the president on health, the more willing the administration may be to take chances. Part of the problem with refusing to believe that the opposition to the plan is actually organic is that Democrats stop listening entirely and treat real concerns of senior citizens and small business owners as part of some crazy conspiracy.
IS Obamacare Consistent With Our First Principles? by Heritage Foundation

The proposed health care legislation is just as bad, if not worse, than TARP. Sec. 142 of HR 3200 grants the new Orwellian titled “Health Choices Commissioner” broad lawmaking authority including the power to set standards for every Americans health insurance plan, to determine which of your current insurance plans do or do not meet that standard, and then to punish plans that do not meet that standard. Even worse is what is not yet in the bill, but is desperately wanted by the Obama administration. A super-empowered Medicare Payment Advisory Commission that is specifically designed to “save money in an apolitical, technocratic way”. The entire purpose of this part of Obamacare would be to take medical decisions away from patients and vest it in a panel of experts specifically designed to be completely unaccountable to the American people. Is this what the Framers of the Constitution had in mind? When the Constitution was being ratified, James Madison, writing as Publius, sought to allay fears that the new national government would turn into a Leviathan. In the 45th Federalist Paper he emphasized that adoption of the Constitution would create a government of enumerated, and therefore strictly limited, powers. Madison said: “The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined… [and] will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce….” Federal tax collectors, Madison assured everyone, “will be principally on the seacoast, and not very numerous.” Exactly six months after publication of this essay, New York became the 11th state to ratify the Constitution. Is turning over one-sixth of our nation’s economy over to Obama’s super-MedPAC panel in any way consistent with this vision?

The Daily Kos and the Shadows that Lurk Within by Common Sense From Common Man
…Government run Medicare with a staggering $37 TRILLION of unfunded debt.  Shadow wants to make it seem like 100% of Americans has a 50/50 chance of getting their health insurance canceled.  In fact, when you actually look at the numbers, it’s the top 1 percentile of people with high medical expenses, greater than $35,543 who have a chance of getting their health insurance canceled.  You can see for yourself right here. Let’s also discuss auto insurance as well.   Why should anyone have to pay higher auto insurance premiums because they have a higher incident of traffic accidents, right?  Let’s abolish all pre-existing records of accidents, traffic violations, and theft of cars too. Should we take a look and discuss reform on preexisting condition insurance? Yes it’s worth discussing it and further studying it before making inflated claims.  Let’s also discuss how allowing health insurance companies to sell plans across state lines can increase competition and reduce the risk pool (a favorite of the current Administration).  While we’re at it let’s address tort reform as well (a taboo of the current Administration as trial lawyers gave millions to them).  These will lead to lower costs for ALL Americans… See Fleckenstein Debunk all ten talking points at link above.
 
Obama, Bush and the Limits of Power at Campaign for Liberty
It should now be beyond dispute that the Obama administration represents a continuation, solidification and expansion of the Bush legacy, with some minor changes in some areas and a vast acceleration of government growth in others. And yet, as we can joyously witness, the president is running into problems.
The most conspicuous feature of the Bush years was the nearly invincible faith in government power in the realm of national security. So pronounced was this trust in the national security state, war on terror, and U.S. empire, that the opposing Democrats, many of whom dissented from the Iraq war and the worst excesses in executive spying, detention and torture, looked reasonable in comparison. Many conservatives and libertarians even favored the Democrats in the 2006 election in hopes of reining in the profligate and warmongering Republicans. Eventually, Bush and the neoconservatives ran into a wall. The Iraq war continued to consume American and Iraqi lives but the democracy and peace that were promised never came. After the administration’s incompetent handling of Katrina in 2005, the Republicans began losing support among moderates, who became increasingly frustrated with the mounting deficits, the erosion of their liberties and the prolonged war abroad. Then, in 2008, the financial sector collapsed, despite the Republican presidential candidate’s insistence that the “fundamentals of the economy” were sound. By November, the GOP had been marginalized. The economic crisis has breathed new life into the Democratic agenda of corporate socialism and expansive federal government at home, just as the national security crisis of 9/11 had tipped popular opinion toward the Republican agenda of preventive war and attacks on our civil liberties. But it had took years for Bush and his team to lose support among the political center, whereas we are witnessing support for Obama unravel much more quickly. This could all turn around, of course, but we have reasons to be hopeful. Obama’s health care plan, his most ambitious domestic policy program, is in peril. Although he has a solid Democratic majority in both Congressional houses, politicians are vulnerable to public opinion, and opinion is split. Some polls show a slight majority supportive of his plan. But in the last few weeks, polls have also shown a larger percentage opposed than in favor. Senior citizens, one of the demographics that was supposed to benefit the most from Obamacare, are the most skeptical group. In order to get his plan through, Obama has to court two groups of Democrats — those who are relatively fiscally conservative and are skeptical of socialized medicine, and those on the far left who do not want too many compromises with the insurance industry and desire a full-blown single-payer system. Meanwhile, the Congressional Budget Office has undermined one of the administration’s central claims, that the health care proposal will cut costs. The CBO has detracted in other ways from Obama’s economic agenda, warning that Obama’s deficit may be four times as high as the already ridiculously large deficit from Bush’s last year in office. In February, the CBO determined that Obama’s stimulus program could be harmful to economic recovery in the long run. And the people are feeling the failure, so far, of Obama’s economic program. Much of the public remembers the warnings that without the bailouts the sky would fall and they recall the promises that the stimulus would give an immediate boost to the economy. As Goldman Sachs reports record earnings and yet unemployment continues to rise, many Americans are detecting a bait and switch and are altogether unimpressed with Obama’s handling of the economy. Here we see the two major limits on government power in play. One is public opinion. As political theorist Franz Oppenheimer and others have pointed out, government operates, in the end, with the tacit consent, or at least acquiescence, of the people. No matter what form of government, from a dictatorship to a pure democracy, the government requires social legitimacy in the eyes of enough of the public to do what it does. Public ideology is key. If a majority is strongly opposed to the government’s operations, eventually something has to give. It is the importance of public opinion that explains why governments, whether ostensible republics or autocracies, would ever utilize censorship, propaganda, or control of the public school system and media to shore up public support for their works. Constitutions alone cannot limit government. The overwhelming bulk of what the federal government is engaged in, from imperial wars to drug prohibition, from Social Security to Medicare, is unauthorized by the Constitution, and yet they persist. What matters ultimately is the Constitution in the hearts and minds of the people. So long as the American public supports unconstitutional actions, such actions will commence. Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty, as Jefferson noted. The Constitution spells out great limits on the government, but without the support of the people, the document loses its teeth.
 
Just A Friendly Reminder…. If you have not yet turned in the President and others in Washington (both parties) for promoting and diseminating incorrect and self serving (aka “fishy”) information  via media and blog sites about the health care bill.. please take a moment and drop an email to flag@whitehouse.govThanks!

I turned in the President and Co to Flag@whitehosue.gov- You should too

Posted on August 7, 2009. Filed under: Enemies of The State, General Info, Soapbox | Tags: , , , , , , |

Dear Flag,
 
I saw your posting yesterday for tattling on “fishy” information providers for the health care program.
 
I would like to turn in the President, his staff, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Co, Democratic party officials, Democratic Senators and Congressmen (except of course the Blue Dogs who did not drink the kool-aid). I also would like turn in left wing crackpots who, against the constitution of the United States of America (a historical document on which this country was founded, in case you forgot) control the airwaves. These are too numerous to mention.
 
Thank you for pursuing these people as they are ruining my country by spreading disinformation about a socialist, Marxist plot against the American public called Health Care Reform (reprogramming) . 

Sincerely,

Desiree Paquette
 
PS- I highly recommend you look into Cap and Trade (Waxman/Markey Bill) as you will find the same culprits are disseminating disinformation regarding this as well.

Spread the Word About the 09/12 Project

Citizen involvement is the answer to bad government- let’s spread the word! Together, maybe common sense can conquer corruption and lack of responsiveness by our “leaders and representatives”.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME? WHITE HOUSE WANTS DISSIDENTS IDENTIFIED-

http://blog.heritage….

The White House is losing the health care debate. Polls from National Public Radio, Wall Street Journal/NBC News, The Washington Post, Gallup, and Pew all show that the American people do not support President Barack Obama’s health care plan. The White House wants people to believe they are losing the health care debate because “scary … videos are starting to percolate on the internet” that are spreading “disinformation” about Obama’s health care plan. The White House is even encouraging Obama supporters to help them identify people spreading this “disinformation.” The official White House blog now asks Americans: “If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov.”

REALLY? WHAT ABOUT ALL THE LIES THE ADMINISTRATION IS SPREADING ABOUT THE HEALTH CARE BILL? MOST OF THE CONGRESS HAS NOT EVEN READ THE BILL AND BY THE PRESIDENT”S OWN ADMISSION, HE HAS NOT EITHER! HOW THE HELL WOULD THEY KNOW WHAT DISINFORMATION IS???? LET ME TELL YOU.. THEY ARE THE ONES NOT BEING HONEST! REALLY! CITIZENS ARE WAKING UP AND SEEING WITH THEIR OWN EYES WHAT KIND OF CHICAGO STYLE THUGARY OUR GOVERNMENT HAS BECOME. ANYONE WHO DISAGREES IS MADE TO BE A LAUGHING STOCK OR CRIMINAL . THIS IS STRAIGHT OUT OF ‘THE RULES FOR RADICALS’ PLAYBOOK. OUR GOVERNMENT IS BECOMING NOTHING MORE THAN A BRANCH OF ACORN (MAKE THAT BRANCH NUMBER..what was it?.. 362. IF YOU CATCH THE GOVERNMENT LYING TO YOU (opportunities exist daily, believe me) PLEASE REPORT IT TO soldierforliberty@hotmail.com .

Obama’s War On Sherrif Joe Arpaio by American Thinker
http://www.americanth…
You may have heard of Maricopa County, AZ Sheriff Joe Arpaio who has been a one man border enforcement machine – doing the job the feds refuse to do.
Well, Joe got himself in a spot of trouble with Obama administration immigration enforcement officials at Homeland Security by rounding up 13 illegal immigrants and trying to deliver them to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency. One would think that ICE would be grateful to Sheriff Joe for doing their work for them. Not according to this editorial in the Washington Times. It seems that in the end, Joe was forced to let the illegals go – and ICE lied about the reason why.

What Don’t They Understand About the Word “REPRESENTATIVE” ?
Dems Say They Will Push ObamaCare through Despite Citizens’ Opposition
http://canadafreepres…
Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) has made it clear in the extreme that the Democrat Party will accept no disagreement from anyone–including the American people–to ObamaCare. Schumer said that “one way or another” the Democrats would push Socio-fascist ObamaCare through by the “end of the year,” despite exponentially increasing bi-partisan opposition from the American people. On CBS’ Face The Nation last Sunday, Schumer said:

“Make no mistake about it, the president is for this strongly. There will be a public option in the final bill.”- Bear in mind, a public “option” is no option at all. On page 16-Sec. 102 of H.R. 3200 (the House version of ObamaCare), which begins “Protecting the choice to Keep Private Coverage,” it is stated emphatically (lines 3-26) that it “OUTLAWS PRIVATE INSURANCE by forbidding enrollment after HR 3022 is passed into law.”

But.. ObamaCare to Eliminate Private Insurance
As Obama has said on multiple occasions (see below referenced video), it is his intention to replace all private healthcare insurance with government-ONLY ObamaCare. And Schumer’s comments have made it clearthat he and others elected to Congress are beholden to and standing with Dictator-in-Chief Obama against We-the-People.

And… Government and Media Attacks Against People’s Opposition to Obama
Joining with their mainstream media outlets (including but, not limited to ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, CNBC and MSNBC), Democrats are now also denigrating grass roots protests to the clearly Socio-fascist and anti-human ObamaCare plan–a plan bent upon replacing all Americans’ (except Congress, the Executive and Judicial branches of government and government and union workers) choices for healthcare. These media are also refusing to report on the true numbers of grassroots protestors (independently reported as between 8,000-10,000 in some locations) to ObamaCare and have joined with their Democrat co-conspirators to blame “right-wing nut groups” and the now powerless-in-Congress GOP for any and all opposition to any and all of the ObamaPlans; this time specifically Obama’s replacement of US healthcare that is considered the best in the world with his own brand.
