How America has fallen..

If you doubted the IRS scandal was real and that Obama and the democrats actually used the most feared, powerful, and dangerous US agency to target their political opposition, I have some more news for you. If you doubted that the NSA and the FBI were spying on us all and passing on information to the Obama administration and democrats to target their political enemies, I got some more news for you. If you doubted that the democrat machine was robbing the American tax payer blind to buy itself elections and cement it’s power permanently with crazy schemes like the legalization of millions of border jumpers, a fake healthcare reform system that does nothing but make things worse and more expensive, which really should be which should killed or constant assaults on 2nd amendment supported gun owners, I have some more news for you. If you piss them off you become an enemy of the state. The latest, and one that is sure to cement the banana republic label for good, was the move by the FCC to put “monitors” in news rooms. This was purely political and an assault on any press agency that would dare not walk the line the Obama administration and the democrats want the press to walk. Don’t just take my word for it:

Last week, FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai disclosed the existence of the FCC’s new “Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs,” a study that would send FCC researchers (monitors?) into newsrooms across the nation to determine, among other things, whether news organizations are meeting citizens “actual” as opposed to “perceived” information needs. As designed, the study empowers researchers to not only ask a series of questions of news staff, it also provides (in pages 10 and 11) advice for gaining access to employees even when broadcasters and their Human Resources refuse to provide confidential employee information. The Obama administration FCC is abusing its regulatory authority by attempting to discern the inner workings of American newsrooms.

And what will these FCC monitors ask when they do get access? Here’s the list of questions to station owners, managers, or HR:

• What is the news philosophy of the station?

• Who is your target audience?

• How do you define critical information that the community needs?

• How do you ensure the community gets this critical information?

• How much does community input influence news coverage decisions?

• What are the demographics of the news management staff (HR)?

• What are the demographics of the on air staff (HR)?

• What are the demographics of the news production staff (HR)?

And here’s the list of questions to on-air staff:

• What is the news philosophy of the station?

• How much news does your station air every day?

• Who decides which stories are covered?

• How much influence do you have in deciding which stories to cover?

• Have you ever suggested coverage of what you consider a story with critical information for your customers (viewers, listeners, readers) that was rejected by management?

o If so, can you give an example?

o What was the reason given for the decision?

o Why do you disagree?

Since when is a station’s “philosophy” or its inter-office disputes any of the federal government’s business? For that matter, how is the federal government qualified to determine what a citizen “needs” to know. Are citizens not qualified to make that determination themselves?

This is just shit you expect to hear in places like Cuba, Venezuela, China, North Korea, Iran, Russia, or other communist hell holes like the ones I mentioned or France. It is absolutely mindboggling to me that the media is just going along too. Sure, for now the people in charge and the fifth column seem to be united in purpose, but these fucking idiots that pretend to be part of the LSM seem to be immune to history. Did they miss the story about the people explaining how when the Nazis came for the Jews, gypsies, and other undesirables, they all just ignored it because they agreed or didn’t give a damn, but then when it was their turn, nobody was left to protest? And have no doubt that Obama and the donkeys would fuck over any reporter they would want to if they felt slighted. It happens it happens all the time. They have already done this to friendly ones that all but offered to fellate them for access.

America is truly changing as Obama promised, but lets not kid ourselves that it is anything for the worse.

I told you net neutrality was anything but..

And now we have some proof:

Documents made public yesterday by Judicial Watch describe extensive collusion by Federal Communications Commission officials with a left-wing advocacy group in a campaign to expand government regulation of the Internet. The documents, obtained by Judicial Watch in a December 2010 Freedom of Information Act request, were created after Democrat appointees solidified their 3-2 control of the agency in March 2009.

Judicial Watch is a conservative nonprofit that specializes in using the FOIA and other avenues to expose corruption in government. The coordination between FCC officials and Free Press, the advocacy group, supported a proposal for the agency to regulate access to the Internet as if it were a public utility, in the interest of ensuring “Net Neutrality.” Proponents said doing so would assure equal access for all Internet users by barring companies from offering preferred rates for higher delivery speeds. Other users, especially in communities with limited Internet access, would be forced to accept poorer service.

But critics said the proposal would actually give the FCC a tool to regulate content, and they argued that the FCC has no authority over the medium in the first place. It would be akin to forcing FedEx and UPS to treat all packages the same way the U.S. Postal Service does. Free Press is the most vocal of a number of far-left and liberal advocacy groups that for nearly a decade have pushed numerous proposals for vastly increasing government regulation of the Internet.

Yeah, this isn’t going to be the left and the FCC controlling content and limiting the other side from pointing out they are crooks. This has been and continues to be about regulating what speech gets out there, and the elft knows this is a great way to shut down the alternative pesky media that has devastated their narrative and their MSM buddies money making scams.
