FEC Republican Blasts Commission for Chilling Free Speech

277

Lee Goodman, one of three Republicans who sit on the Federal Election Commission, says that the three Democrats on the FEC – if left unchecked – would destroy the free American press. In a statement criticizing the Democrats for their vote last month to punish documentary filmmaker Joel Gilbert, Goodman said that if Ann Ravel, Steven Walther, and Ellen Weintraub had their way, sites like the Drudge Report would become relics of the past.

Their votes, wrote Goodman, “signal an active regulatory effort within the agency, caution press organizations to look over their shoulders, and chill the free exercise of press activity.”

Meanwhile, the Democrats claim that by supporting Gilbert’s film, Republicans are essentially throwing campaign finance regulations to the wind. “Press entities do not act as press entities when they distribute millions of free DVDs immediately before an election solely in electoral swing states,” said Weintraub.

The subject of the vote was a film called “Dreams From My Real Father,” a free documentary that was distributed to voters in Ohio prior to the 2012 presidential elections. The film made the claim that Barack Obama’s real father was a Communist named Frank Marshall Davis whose radical activism shaped the young president’s worldview. Two years later, Loren Collins filed an FEC complaint against Gilbert.

“With the right framing, even the most dishonest, smear-mongering attacks can skirt FEC regulations under our current regulations,” said Collins. “His mailing cost at least $1 million, and that could’ve been paid for by Mitt Romney or Donald Trump, and there’s no way to know. Taken together with Citizens United, this could have very serious negative ramifications.”

But Goodman and other Republicans argue that it’s better to err on the side of freedom than on the side of censorship. “Freedom of the press isn’t so free when three government commissars vote to punish a filmmaker for distributing a documentary film,” said Goodman in an interview with the Washington Examiner. “Conservative documentary films have faced tough sledding at the FEC, no matter how the films are distributed.”

According to Goodman, the position of the Democrats on this issue could lead to a slippery slope where internet news sites and even newspaper editorials could be subject to federal censure. “In short, the premise of the legal violation articulated by Commissioner Weintraub is that free dissemination of otherwise protected press speech by a bona fide press entity immediately before an election in a particular geographical location is unlawful.”

Conservatives and liberals alike have cause to be concerned about money in politics, but there are ways to go about reforming the system without dismantling the Constitution. And if it comes down to a choice between “too much money” and “too little freedom of speech,” well…that’s no choice at all.

    The freedom of the press and speech must not be subject to negotiation, now tomorrow, or ever. There are other avenues of recovery such as litigating for defamation of character, etc. The freedoms given us under the Constitution are not up for sale, nor will they be in the future.

      Hate speech is illegal.
      Hate speech has been illegal since the 1960s.

      1. ObomoTheStupidNiggerTerrorist says

        YOUR STUPIDITY SHOULD BE ILLEGAL
        HANG ALL THE LIBERALS
        LET THEM SUFFER FOR WHAT THEY HAVE DONE TO THIS GREAT COUNTRY

        1. AKLady says

          The Founding Fathers were liberals.
          You best be grateful, if it were not for librals, you would be a Brit.

          1. ObomoTheStupidNiggerTerrorist says

            LIBERALS WERE DIFFERENT BACK THEN, THEY WERE ALMOST NOT BAT-SHIT STUPID FOR ONE!!
            NOW WE HAVE THE MESS OF QUEER-MUSLIM-COMMUNIST PARTY AKA ALL THE DNC AND THEIR DAMN LIBERAL SHEEP

          2. AKLady says

            Why do you embarrass America with childish name calling?
            The vulgar language is so not impressive.
            Most children give foolishness up by the 2nd or 3rd grade.
            Why would anyone agree with a adult who is that immature?

          3. ObomoTheStupidNiggerTerrorist says

            I TELL IT HOW IT IS, IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT GO TO A DAMN SAFE SPACE AND COVER YOUR EARS

          4. AKLady says

            Grow up.

            Your childish, screaming temper tantrum is not impressive.

            You are a bigot.

            You are an embarrassment to everything this country stands for.

            TERRORISM AND COMMUNISM,
            YOU ARE A TRAITOR JUST LIKE THE REST OF THE LIBTARDS

          6. AKLady says

            You fight to LIMIT freedom in this country.

            You are trying to destroy everything my ancestors gave their lives for.

            You obviously do not honor our Constitution.

            Take your religious and racial hate and get out – they are not welcome in America.

          7. ObomoTheStupidNiggerTerrorist says

            WERE YOUR ANCESTORS SLAVES, BY A CHANCE?
            BECAUSE YOU DO NOT MAKE A GOOD EXAMPLE OF THEM
            THEY ARE PROBABLY FACE PALMING ALREADY AT YOUR FOOLISHNESS

          8. AKLady says

            My ancestors were officers in the Revolutionary Army.

            They would hang you from the nearest tree.

            You obviously do not honor our Constitution.
            Take your religious and racial hate and get out – they are not welcome in America.

            Interesting that the motivation of such a large group can be encapsulated in one word. It would seem that such a group would be motivated by a variety of worldviews.

      2. Albert L Biele says

        I particularly would now indulge in Hate Speech. There is no hate speech exception to the First Amendment, except for the following circumstance:
        For instance, there is an exception for “fighting words” — face-to-face personal insults addressed to a specific person, of the sort that are likely to start an immediate fight. But this exception isn’t limited to racial or religious insults, nor does it cover all racially or religiously offensive statements. Indeed, when the City of St. Paul tried to specifically punish bigoted fighting words, the Supreme Court held that this selective prohibition was unconstitutional (R.A.V. v. City of St. Paul (1992)), even though a broad ban on all fighting words would indeed be permissible. (And, notwithstanding CNN anchor Chris Cuomo’s Tweet that “hate speech is excluded from protection,” and his later claims that by “hate speech” he means “fighting words,” the fighting words exception is not generally labeled a “hate speech” exception, and isn’t coextensive with any established definition of “hate speech” that I know of.)

        1. AKLady says

          I am fully aware as to how hate speech is defined.
          Your original post neglected to include the hate exception
          to the 1st Amendment.

          1. Albert L Biele says

            No problem, just being helpful.

      3. Tired... says

        I am interested in learning about this. Can you provide a link or other resource that can shed some light on this?

  2. Tiger says

    There is already across the net sites that once allowed you to speak your mind that are saying no and censoring. There is a movement across the net and we who have been posting on sites for years know it, sense it and feel it. You can’t say what you want about O or Muslims and I am not talking threats etc. just facts.

    They will if they can and if they win this next election it is over in more ways than one for this country.

    1. gonzales27 says

      I saw on the news last week that one of the released terrorist that Obama had released from Gitmo had murdered a black woman and her two black children.The next morning that news was nowhere to be found.News sanctioning at it’s finest.

      1. AKLady says

        That one has been around for a long time.
        It is almost always false.

      2. AKLady says

        Fact: It was an Afghan prisoner, who was released by Bush. Try to remember Bush released over 500 Gitmo prisoners. The murder in quesation took place before Obama was in office. No screening of those prisoners took place.

        1. ObomoTheStupidNiggerTerrorist says

          FACT: BUSH WAS NOT A NIGGER MUSLIM, AND WILL ALWAYS BE BETTER THAN THAT TRAITOR CURRENTLY IN OFFICE

          1. AKLady says

            Obama is neither, so I guess you best learn some manners, as well as some facts. Your bigotry is childish ignorance published foe the world to see.

            Freedom of religion is what our Founders fought and died for. You mock their sacrifices.

            Your filthy mouth is an embarrassment to all Americans. Like all bigots, you have only hate, no facts.

            If you do not appreciate America’s freedoms, please move somewhere else – today would not be too soon.

          2. ObomoTheStupidNiggerTerrorist says

            ISLAM IS NOT A RELIGION, THE CLOSEST THING TO IT IS A MURDEROUS SATANIC CULT!!
            THAT IS THE TRUE FACT!

          3. AKLady says

            You are an ignorant, childish bigot.
            You embarass America.

            The first cassualty in the Amerixan Revolution was a Muslim — Crispus Attucks.
            The first country to recognize our new Nation was Muslim — Morrocco.

            SOON..

            Go read the 1st Amendment of the Bill of Rights.. any Citizen can say anything he/she wants, any time they want. YOU do not dictate the tone or the content of what others may speak. Get it?

            Excellent advise for YOU to apply to your own numerous and very opinionated postings on here.

            Apparently, the voice of others is only to be dis-respected and over-ridden by your version of truth or fact. You scream about dis-respect, yet practice it yourself as a standard course..

            Try practicing what you preach for a change.. your personal attitude is one of the most racist and insulting I have ever come across. I reject and rebuke you for it.

            Clean up your act.. get help doing that, you need it.

          34. G.Mann says

            Agreed on all points. However, just to be clear.. such blatant violation of others right to speak really can’t be tolerated, even by a troll like AKlady.

            No, the fact us someone has repeated it just to get you angry.

      3. Tired... says

        Is it possible that you are talking about the crack dealer that was freed under President Obama’s clemency program who killed his ex-girlfriend and her two children? I ask because it seems strange that a terrorist would murder only a mother and her two children; that seems too personal. Usually the goal of a terrorist is to inflict mass casualties so that they can grab international headlines.

        1. gonzales27 says

          Only know what was in the news article,all three were black,including the terrorist.

            What on earth are you talking about? I researched the story and could only find the one above and asked for clarification. The individual in the story I referenced was not released from Gitmo and that is why I asked.

      4. Tiger says

        Not only that I found a video never seen of Muslims in Chicago, and I mean a lot of them calling for Death to America. O is abominable.

        1. Clockp says

          Agreed. I’ve many lively discussions with my mushy college frosh son on this and many other topics, getting grudgingly to the point of discussing facts. I will get him to think for himself or die trying!

            Only way to address cults is turn it on themselves with facts, common sense and logic, the contradictory writings and behavior of their own text and Muhammed the pederast, then the members MIGHT engage the curse of liberalism: critical thinking. Questioning the social engineers, Mullahs, Lenin’s, Mao’s, David Koresh’s and Jim Jones’ knocks them off their pedestal, the people stop believing then they’re toast.

          3. Fedup says

            Occupation is a crime? Seriously? Do they not see the hypocrisy?

          4. Tiger says

            No and it is not Israel occupying anyone. That is all since Arafat the Rat. Gaza is a city and has been around for ages and when the Jordanians took over they threw the Jews and Arabs off their lands into Gaza. In 2006 it was the third biggest Refugee Camp in the world. The Jews left and the Arabs stayed and they are the ones occupying.

            When the Gazans nominated Hamas to be part of the governing body boy how fast that place went down. You should look up the before and after pictures. Now the Gazans have gone to International Humanitarian Groups to file charges against Hamas. This last uprising Hamas would not let anyone leave Gaza and they shot people and tortured them and did not allow them to go to shelters so they could blame the deaths on Israel.

            Hamas, Hezbollah, Taliban, al Shabaab, al Qaeda, Muslim Brotherhood and all Terrorist organizations need to be extracted permanently from the ME. Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and our allies are now throwing Muslim Brotherhood out and they have been fighting ISIS before O got into the picture. America the late comers and we know why.

          5. Fedup says

            I just don’t understand what they are doing in our country if they feel this way! Why don’t they go home to their own country if they disrespect ours so much? I just don’t get it!!! We need to shoot them on sight. That is the only way to stop this!

          6. Tiger says

            There are 50 Major Muslim countries in this world. They are huge why are refugees being sent to our countries? True our allies in the ME won’t accept them because they are dangerous and true O won’t stop accepting them because he wants them to hurt us badly.

            They are here to invade, to take our country and they make no bones about it. Look to what their leaders say, they want Sharia Law and they want our country. They are about to succeed in England, Denmark and Sweden. Europe in total chaos.

            Yes Trump must follow through and deport all who do this in America because they are an “Alien Threat” under our immigration laws and can be deported immediately.

          7. Fedup says

            If you haven’t already seen him, look up Ezra Levant and the story he did regarding Malmo, Sweden and the refugees there. I found it to be very telling on the reasons why they are they are migrating to other countries. I don’t believe they are “fleeing” anything. Especially the military age males. We should not be allowing them in when they are perfectly capable of staying and defending their own countries. Just my opinion.

          8. Tiger says

            I have kept up with the refugees arriving in Europe from day one. They were 75% men and they began causing trouble immediately. They refused to go to the camps to be vetted and they started protesting. They want to go straight to the countries that give them the most benefits.

            I will look Exra Levant up thank you.

          9. Tiger says

            Here is the map and did you know that Japan does not take any refugees and selectively takes a few Muslims but they are not allowed to have schools, protest and there are few mosques. If they cause any trouble they are deported. They have never had an attack.

          10. Tiger says

            By the way just got the rest of this story yes they did shout death to America during this and it was nowhere to be found on our news. I have many video I can put up.

            This is America and if Americans gathered in such mass and yelled death to Muslims what would people do?

          11. Cotton says

            We should do that, sounds like a good idea!

          12. Tiger says

          time to break out the grenades…

          1. Tiger says

            Most likely going to come down to that. We are overwhelmed with Imams preaching Jihad and protests by Muslims screaming Death to America along with Islamic infiltrates into every infrastructure of our government. Tale a listen to this video. I have known about this for years. Nobody listened to anybody. Steven Emerson did a two hour documentary on Muslim Brotherhood in the 80’s and nobody listened. Trump needs to get hold of this. We are at the end of the Islamic Muslim Brotherhood rope.

        Then why didn’t you copy and post it everywhere on the WWW and every bulletin board you could push a thumb tack into? I get sick and tired of hearing people whine and do nothing else! If you aren’t part of the solution, you are part of the problem!

    2. AKLady says

      Internet sites are private property.
      Hate speech is a crime.

      1. SNuss says

        Shouldn’t even so-called “hate speech” be free speech? Popular speech does not need to be defended. Leftists use that “hate speech” description, trying to censor conservative commentary, quite often.

        1. azabigail says

          The problem with PC is that Liberals use it to call anything their decrepit minds can think of, hate speech, or racist. Yet at the same time, everything they say is misleading, hateful, bullying, vindictive, and sometimes weird and bizarre.

        2. Carol says

          YES! IT SHOULD! AND WE DO ASCRIBE TO THAT RIGHT – AS LONG! AS THAT RIGHT!…. IS NOT! TAKEN AWAY FROM US! (and given to Muslims! for example!)

      2. T. VOGT says

        Really?? Then that must be why you troll sites and force your liberal garbage and silly ideas so often does the DNC pay you or just the Clinton’s and Obama’s? I have had to battle your pathetic *facts* for well over a year and won so many times it’s not fun any more. So I’ll keep it short and to the point..
        Obama is a TRAITOR.. FACT
        Hillary is a TRAITOR FACT
        everyone running for President other then Trump is a paid off traitor… and you “LADY” are no better then the internet trolls trying to get you to get employed by surfing the web.. which you obviously signed up for long ago.. now go play in your Garbage can elsewhere because we don’t want to see or hear from you and your ignorant diatribes about your holy saints trying to tear America apart.. you are simply a TOOL and I don’t mean a wrench..
        You Hate speech is welcome nowhere.. and neither are you supposed Facts..

        1. Carol says

          THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! (From Dr. Hook!) AMEN! AMEN! and AMEN!! THANK YOU! YOU MADE MY DAY !!!! (I HOPE YOU LIKE DR. HOOK!)

      3. Tiger says

        If you believe what you wrote about Hate Speech is a crime then obviously you don’t know that is not what the Supreme Court ruled and you are OK with all the Hate Speech related to Trump including death threats.

        See how hypocritical you are.

        1. AKLady says

          Hate speech is a communication that carries no meaning other than the expression of hatred for some group, especially in circumstances in which the communication is likely to provoke violence. It is an incitement to hatred primarily against a group of persons defined in terms of race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, religion, sexual orientation, and the like. Hate speech can be any form of expression regarded as offensive to racial, ethnic and religious groups and other discrete minorities or to women.

          http://definitions.uslegal.com/h/hate-speech/

          1. Tiger says

            But according to the Supreme Court it is not prohibited.

          2. AKLady says

            The only permitted exceptions to free speech protections—as the Supreme Court recently re-articulated—are for obscenity, defamation, fraud, incitement, and “speech integral to criminal conduct.”. Unprotected speech includes things such as threats, child pornography and “fighting words” (speech that would likely draw someone into a fight, such as personal insults.

            Hate speech equal to”fighting words” and are exclused from 1st Amendement protection. The 1941 Supreme Court ruling in Chaplinsky vs. New Hampshire, which excluded fighting words from the First Amendment.

      4. Carol says

        then Why???? do you commit Hate speech all the time ?????? and Miss High and Mighty! You even call… The Holy BIBLE …. hate speech !!! So?…… we’re done!…… enjoy your Eternal resting place – Not Possible …. TOOTSIE! ….

        1. Tired... says

          You do not have to agree with her, but help me understand how this response honors God? Is God so weak that calling the Bible hate speech hurts Him in some way?

    3. ObomoTheStupidNiggerTerrorist says

      I AGREE FULLY, OBAMA IS A DAMN MUSLIM NIGGER TERRORIST, AND HE SHOULD BE HANGED AND STONED LIKE THEIR SO CALLED “RELIGION” ALLOWS

        I do not care for President Obama in the least and agree that he is deliberately destroying this nation, but this comment is over the top.

        1. azabigail says

          You’re right. It sounds like something a liberal would post to make Republicans, Christians and Conservatives look bad. It’s actually obvious because the majority of us don’t speak that way, and those that do, don’t go that far, and they don’t go incognito.

          1. Tired... says

            I agree. However keep in mind that some people do not list their names because of their professions.

        2. ObomoTheStupidNiggerTerrorist says

          I MAY BE OVER THE TOP, BUT I ONLY SPEAK THE TRUTH,
          SORRY IF MY UN-PC COMMENTS OFFEND YOU!

          1. Tired... says

            I wasn’t offended, I just think that there are better ways to express your opinion that may cause others to think rather than react.

          2. ObomoTheStupidNiggerTerrorist says

            LIBERALS AND THE LIKE LACK THE CAPACITY TO THINK.
            I HAVE ALREADY DEALT WITH A COUPLE FEW LIBTARD TROLLS AND THEY ARE NO PROBLEM FOR THE LIKES OF ME.

          3. Tired... says

            Well, we disagree there. I may not agree with their conclusions, but they think every bit as much as anyone else.

          4. ObomoTheStupidNiggerTerrorist says

            YOU DISAGREE WITH THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE WRONG, AND THEY WILL ALWAYS BE WRONG, EVEN WITH SO MUCH EVIDENCE AGAINST THEM THEY LIE THROUGH THEIR TEETH.
            THEY WILL LEARN WHEN THEY CAUSE AN UPRISING AGAINST THEMSELVES, AND LIBERALISM WILL FINALLY DIE LIKE IT SHOULD HAVE AT THE VERY BEGINNING.

          5. Tired... says

            I didn’t say that they were right, I just said that they can think. However, I do not know everything so I am willing to listen to different points of view and distill the information myself.

        3. Carol says

          Whoever (ObomoThe…)? wrote that message: albeit, it Politically Correct or NOT! … it IS! Free Speech!: Which the Muslims! (and Their LOBBYIST’S) Here in America!… are Planning to take away from us!…(OUR FREE SPEECH!) By giving that… TOTALLY, FREE RELIGIOUS! SPEECH!!…. To: ISLAM !! Who Believe in a Different “god!”, than the ONE our Pilgrims, Came to Found Their Nation! Upon !!!!

          1. Tired... says

            Of course his/her opinion is allowed…I merely commented that the tone was excessive, which is also protected free speech. I am just as displeased with the current state of affairs as the next person, but anger begets anger; nothing positive comes from it.

      3. azabigail says

        I’m not an Obama fan, but if you are a Republican/Conservative you need to get some help, you’re comment is disgusting. Actually, you sound like a Liberal trying to make Republicans sound bad.

        1. ObomoTheStupidNiggerTerrorist says

          AM I NOT POLITICALLY CORRECT ENOUGH FOR YOU??
          YOU ARE THE ONE THAT SOUNDS LIKE A LIBERAL IN THAT SENSE!!

      4. Tiger says

        Indeed he should and by our Constitutions own definition of a Traitor he fits the bill this nobody can deny. He has given aid and comfort to every enemy we have. There are generals who notified Congress and laid out how he has committed Treason but this Congress is as bad as O.

        1. ObomoTheStupidNiggerTerrorist says

          IT IS UP TO THE PEOPLE NOW.
          WE MUST TAKE UP ARMS AND FIGHT BACK!

          1. Tiger says

            I really don’t see any other answer if this election doesn’t work. Too bad we have come to this. It will be mayhem if O and all do what they have in mind.

          1. Tiger says

            Yes it is my identity hidden due to death threats. Simple as that.

    5. MAHB001 says

      Our Government and the elites that control the Government, put up a ruse to make us think they are fighting for free speech.

      They are doing just the opposite, suppressing all speech that does not fit their narrative.

      The MEDIA has willfully abandoned free speech to follow a liberal agenda.

      1. Tiger says

        It will bloom into full fledged Communism very quickly if either Hillary or Bernie get into office. Appears the wealthy know it already leaving big cities and moving around their money.

        Bortz warned years ago and took his money out, told people how to do it then left Talk Radio and hasn’t been heard from since.

        1. MAHB001 says

          It is time to fight back, as peacefully as possible while we still can.

          Here is yet another story of big government silencing its opposition.

            one of my “top ten” Mel character opposed the engagement with the Brits, at least until his family and home were attacked. His feelings were driven by hard memories of past situations involving the brutality of armed combat…when he came out all bets were off…

          8. Tiger says

            That is a fact pure and simple. When the knife cuts into your family then the kid gloves comes off and we kill and even my daughter said as much. She now realizes everything I said about Islam true. As do all my children.

          9. curmudgeon VN Veteran says

            Tiger have you seen any pictures of the great Hussein Obama bowing and scraping to the King and other royals in Saudi Arabia? I haven’t seen anything on the net so far, but I’m sure the administration has a press blackout to protect the child.

          10. Tiger says

            All I have is the old one but let me take a look. Be right back.

          11. curmudgeon VN Veteran says

            Apparently the Muslim pResident was snubbed at the airport. Probably saved him from any further scaring of his knees.

          12. Tiger says

            Just finished reading the story. Saudi Arabia and the other countries that formed the original Ten Nation Coalition didn’t even tell O when they attacked ISIS they don’t trust him. All our allies in the ME have thrown Muslim Brotherhood out and O has six of them in highest positions in our Homeland Security. Saudi Arabia along with the rest objected strongly to the “Deal” with Iran and said it would cause nuclear proliferation in the ME and they would buy nukes form Pakistan. They are not happy with O and Egypt has an Israeli embassy now and the UAE are talking with Israeli and their government officials. The Royal family has been breaking apart with many princesses and princesses leaving and Saudis threatened and have ISIS attacks due to their relationship with the West and Dubai. So they are pretty much done with him.

    6. SouthernPatriots says

      Democrats are not sane. Democrats want to greatly hinder or eliminate the Second Amendment and that amendment enables all other amendments to exist. So, now they attack the First Amendment. That has been the case for years now, but nowadays with the Fascist-in-Chief in office, these Democrats have become more brazen.

      1. Tiger says

        Yes they have and Sanders a Socialist running for office under their banner and Hillary pronouncing all through her speeches she is a Progressive, another name for Socialist/Communist we see they are brazen.

        Going to get worse and if one of the above get into the WH this Republic over, no rights for anyone, many fines will be inflicted on dissidents, people will tow the line, most of their pay will go to support the “People” and many will lose everything they have. The analysts have put together just what all that “Free Stuff” would cost and it would mean taxing at a rate of 75% or more of the wealthy and others. That doesn’t leave much room for anything else.

        1. Evan says

          You are correct! I can’t believe anyone would be STUPID
          enough to vote for Sanders or Clinton! Both are sorry excuses
          for human beings! I agree, if one of them makes it to the WH,
          America is gone!

          1. Tiger says

            They are going to break the backs of Americans with the taxes it would take to make their promises come true and their followers are so dull in the head they never even ask how everything is going to be free.

          2. AKLady says

            Bush II started two wars and lowered the taxes needed to ay for them.

            There are two wars to be paid for. It is time to put the WW II era tax rates back into effect.

          5. Tiger says

            Hummm interesting.

          6. Tiger says

            The taxes during that time went up to 94% Americans will never stand for that and the wealthy are leaving the huge cities in droves along with our country. Always the wealthy are a sign of pain and suffering to come. We had miserable times and we can’t do this again. It won’t work. People will loose everything. Bad idea here is what was presented to America to explain why they should be taxed.

            “Just because a couple people on the Supreme Court declare something to be ‘constitutional’ does not make it so. The whole thing remains unconstitutional. While the court may have erroneously come to the conclusion that the law is allowable, it certainly does nothing to make this mandate or government takeover of our health care right.”

          1. Tiger says

            I know far better than most that Socialism is the road to Communism and Lenin said so and he should know.

            You can’t talk to me about Socialism or any ism or anyone like me whose family members came to America to get away from the “isms” they don’t work now and never will.

          2. AKLady says

            Why don’ you explain to all of us what the differences are between a Socialist and a Christian?

            When you have managed that, please tell us what the difference between a Communist and a Christian are?

            Please be specific.

          3. Tiger says

            Socialism/Communism have no Christians they hold no faith.

          4. Tiger says

            Socialism and communism are alike in that both
            are systems of production for use based on public ownership of the
            means of production and centralized planning. Socialism grows directly out of capitalism; it is the first form of the new society. Communism is a further development or “higher stage” of socialism.

          5. AKLady says

            Oh, wise one, also pkease tell us which of these countries have become, or will becaome, Communist is the near future: India. Israel, Macau, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Austria, Denmark, Finland,, France, Germany, Guernsey, Jersey, Iceland, Isle of Man, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Canada, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Peru, Columbia, Australia, and New Zealand.

            They all have national health care. They feed, clothe and house the poor.

          6. Tiger says

            They combine Capitalism with their Democracies and why should I spend my time educating the likes of you thought you knew everything.

          7. AKLady says

            People did not come to America to get away from the “Isms”. The came to escape horrible, oppressaive government.

            I grew up next door to survivors of Nazi Germany. A woman repeatedly gang rapd by Nazi soldiers. She was repeatedly aborted without anesthesia. she was also exerimented upon by the good doctor Mengele. She was an American, cought behind the lines.

            My mother’s closest friend smothered her infant son while part of a group escaping from East Germany. He would not stop crying. Had they been cought, the entire group would have been shot, even the children.

      Unfortunately the net-sites are world-wide, with few nations obliged to the freedom of speech. It’s called “Control the People;” and the push for a “One World Government.” I’m a member of the American Legion and favor freedom.

      1. gonzales27 says

        You mean kinda like the US?

        1. Albert L Biele says

          Exactly; it’s true, even in the US, our rights are being attacked. I believe that the the 300+million+ people in this country should be able to replace the 545 people who have basically destroyed the country.(100 Senators,435 Congressmen, 1 President, and 9 S C Judges..

          1. AKLady says

            You elect Congress.
            Maybe you should be a bit more careful when it comes to who your pick and/or suppiort.

          2. Albert L Biele says

            When I was young, the majority of people thought as I did, whereas, today few people think as I do. I come from an era when people believed in the Constitution and God; gave a lady your seat, opened the car door for her, and never used fowl language in the presence of a lady. I vote for candidates that have the same values.

          3. AKLady says

            Problem with those candidates, they also believe that women are second class citizens. That paying them less is just fine. Moreover, they believe we don’t deserve equal pay.

          4. Albert L Biele says

            Not paying women equal pay is shame. It’s nothing more than unadulterated greed. Before I retired, the women project manager in my business was more efficient than the men. I should have paid the men less, but I paid them equally. In my opinion, woman is more efficient and more reliable than men, when it comes to being organized. One of the questions I should have put on my hiring form is “Did you keep your room clean.”

        2. Albert L Biele says

          Good point.

      2. Tiger says

        Amen and I am on international blogs all over and we have more censorship here than they do. There are many underground sites on the net for people to get the truth out about the ME.

    8. kassa1 says

      This is all about global elitist Marxism the 2% ruling the 98. And they do not want communication because they don’t want people rising up against them and that’s another reason they want the guns it’s not for your safety book for theirs. It is more evil in today’s environment even know this is the 20th century then it has been through all time.

      1. Tiger says

        Exactly right and millions of us saw this coming and nobody listened but with O in office and owning the Media this public hasn’t a clue about things that are moving like a freight train to carry them to detention centers and out of the way. I have had liberal posters tell me just that.

    9. curmudgeon VN Veteran says

      I so fear you are right. There are those who want the government to be the be all and end all for all the subjects. Will make it so much easier for the establishment politicians and judges to loot the Nation without interference. Sadly, Abe Lincoln was correct when he said “You can fool some of the people all of the time”. They are commonly known by the name liberal.

      1. Tiger says

        And when Ben Franklin was asked by the woman outside the writing of the Constitution and asked what they had given us he said: “A Republic madame if you can keep it.” They had terrible problems back then with Progressives and Liberals even in George Washington’s cabinet.

        What a mess.

        1. curmudgeon VN Veteran says

          Tiger, I’m not sure how you feel, but I detest having to share oxygen with liberals. They are just so retarded.

          1. Tiger says

            I am so sick of them that I am numb. That is when they need to watch out.

        2. Clockp says

          Thanks for Ben’s quote, I’d forgotten about it and will use it frequently!

      2. Tiger says

        Will we have the courage of our forefathers? My father was Apache/Irish only American I had here. Don’t know what his people did before him, he died before I got to know him. On my mother’s side of the family many fought and died fighting against Communism etc. I have the guts and I know the consequences if we roll over.

  6. ltbrown says

    Was talking about “Mike & Molly” program. Surely I will get toastedheavily! But free seech is the cornorstone of our democracy. The fact the 3 Democrats are the ones throttling free speech is indicative of the party’s communist underpinnings and dislike for the Constitution.

    1. AKLady says

      Hate speech has been a crime since the 1960s.

      1. Tired... says

        The concept of hate speech is dangerous because it punishes people for their thoughts, not their actions. In addition what constitutes hate speech is in the eye of the beholder; the law will be changed to accommodate the beliefs of those in power and will ultimately be used to silence dissent. This is why we fight for free speech even when the very speech that we defend offends us.

        1. AKLady says

          There is an exception to the 1st Amendment for “fighting words” — face-to-face personal insults addressed to a specific person, of the sort that are likely to start an immediate fight.

          Threatening to kill someone because he’s black (or white), or intentionally inciting someone to a likely and immediate attack on someone because he’s Muslim or Christian or Jewish, can be a hate crime.

          Beauharnais v. Illinois (1952),
          R.A.V. v. City of St. Paul (1992
          New York Times Co. v. Sullivan (1964)
          Garrison v. Louisiana (1964)

          1. Tired... says

            Thanks…I’ll take a look.

          2. Tired... says

            Thank you for the information…it was helpful. Yes, as you described using ‘fighting words’ is a crime in its own right and it can be directed against individuals for a variety of reasons.

            However, in the most recent decision that you noted (R.A.V. v. City of St. Paul (1992)), the majority opinion stated the following:

            “(b) A few limited categories of speech, such as obscenity, defamation, and fighting words, may be regulated because of their constitutionally proscribable content. However, these categories are not entirely invisible to the Constitution, and government may not regulate them based on hostility, or favoritism, towards a nonproscribable message they contain. Thus, the regulation of “fighting words” may not be based on nonproscribable content.

            Key phrase: It may, however, be underinclusive, addressing some offensive instances and leaving other equally offensive ones alone, so long as the selective prescription is not based on content, or there is no realistic possibility that regulation of ideas is afoot. Pp. 382-390. [p378]

            (c) The ordinance, even as narrowly construed by the State Supreme Court, is facially unconstitutional, because it imposes special prohibitions on those speakers who express views on the disfavored subjects of “race, color, creed, religion or gender.” At the same time, it permits displays containing abusive invective if they are not addressed to those topics. Moreover, in its practical operation, the ordinance goes beyond mere content, to actual viewpoint, discrimination. Displays containing “fighting words” that do not invoke the disfavored subjects would seemingly be useable ad libitum by those arguing in favor of racial, color, etc. tolerance and equality, but not by their opponents.

            Key phrase: St. Paul’s desire to communicate to minority groups that it does not condone the “group hatred” of bias-motivated speech does not justify selectively silencing speech on the basis of its content. Pp. 391-393.”

            To be clear: This does not mean that mistreating anyone is justified in any way, shape, or form, but it also calls into question the assertion that “hate speech has been illegal since the 1960s.”

            The majority opinion in this case highlights the concern that “St. Paul’s desire… does not justify selectively silencing speech on the basis of its content.” The majority opinion articulated the reason why the phrase “hate speech” is so dangerous and the concern that it can be used to silence free speech.

            I am not arguing that anyone should be abused or disrespected; only that the construct of “hate speech” has to be balanced against freedom and often other crimes are committed that make designating something as “hate speech” moot. Threatening to kill someone for the reasons that you mentioned is a crime in and of itself.

          3. AKLady says

            Wisconsin v. Mitchell, 508 U.S. 476 (1993)the Court has

            The Supreme Court has decided that the First Amendment provides no protection for obscenity, child pornography, or speech that constitutes what has become widely known as “fighting words.”

            The Court has also decided that the First Amendment provides less than full protection to commercial speech, defamation (libel and slander), speech that may be harmful to children, speech broadcast on radio and television (as opposed to speech transmitted via cable or the Internet), and public employees’ speech.

          4. Tired... says

            Right. I am not arguing that anyone can say anything at any time, so we agree that there are exceptions. My only point is that the construct of hate speech is a POTENTIAL threat to the protected right to dissent.

      2. ltbrown says

        who defines what is hate speech and what is free speech? Currently when one cannot win an argument with facts and truths, they play the race card and hate speech PC game. That is what has to stop, I find rap music offensive,hate filled and racist. Lets outlaw it! See, it is not as easy as the liberal left and black racist seem to think.

        1. AKLady says

          The U.S. Supreme Court has defined hate speech, as have many other courts. Your “PC” remark is not applicable.

          Hate speech is a communication that carries no meaning other than the expression of hatred for some group, especially in circumstances in which the communication is likely to provoke violence.

  7. Magik says

    If it were up to the lieberals they would eliminate the 1st , 2nd , and 4th amendments to the Constitution . We must stand up and make sure they don’t . They are an evil and dangerous cabal .

      If it were up to the so-called conservatives, equality under the law would no longer exist.
      We must stand up and make sure they don’t .

            Unluje you, I know what top secret, secret, confidential … means.
            Violating naitonal security is a crime. Someone who violates national security is a criminal, not a whistleblower.

            Why do you embarrass America with childish name calling?
            That is something most children give up by the 2nd or 3rd grade.
            Why would anyone agree with a adult who is that immature?

          7. Gerry Costa says

            You seem to worry a lot about America but yet you defend obozo and his corrupt muslim anti-American regime with their destruction of America with the flooding of illegals and radical muslims and his many scams in every post. I believe you are as phony as obozo and a 3 dollar bill.

          8. AKLady says

            Why do you need to tell this lie?
            Why do you embarrass America this way?
            Why do you believe it is acceptable to lie?
            Why do you believe it is acceptable to repeat lies?

          9. Tired... says

            I believe that he was pointing out that Hillary falls into that category, not that you were a Democrat.

          10. AKLady says

            “Or in your case” …

          11. Tired... says

            “not that you were necessarily a Democrat” proposes that perhaps he believes that you are likely to support her, not that you have to be a Democrat to do so. Perhaps I am wrong…at this point only Magik knows for sure.

            Julian Assange and Edward Snowden….are they both traitors, whistle blowers, or perhaps a bit of both? Often the decision merely boils down to political beliefs.

      2. azabigail says

        Liberals want equality for themselves without respecting the equality of others. Gays wanted equality, then when we changed laws to accommodate their lifestyles, they started using them to bully anyone who did not agree with them, but who stayed neutral as LGBT pushed their agenda through. They used the same laws that we made to protect them to threaten businesses with lawsuits, and push LGBTQ agendas into public schools to teach children that they are no longer boys and girls, but now they are genderless. It wasn’t enough to have Gays rights, they want the whole world to revolve around them. They said they wanted to be treated like everyone else, but now that they can show their true colors, they are trying to force everyone and everything to accommodate them. They are not like a race, or any other community. Thisvis America, a Republic,vwe have individual rights, but Spanish in America don’t expect everyone to become like, and cater to them, Chinese in America don’t expect everyone to be like, and cater to them, and until Obama Blacks didn’to expect everyone to cater to them. Different cultures, like the Chinese and Italians have their little communities next to each other but neither one expects the other to be like, or cater to them. We each have individual rights to be ourselves, but that’s not what Liberals are honoring, UNLESS, it has something to do withvthem.

      We must speak anyone who will listen, about the dire situation that America has fallen into during the last 8 years under Socialistic Liberal leadership. Our government has been infiltrated by anti-Americans who are pulling America down from the inside out, and we need to get “true” Americans in office if we want to turn this mess around. Most Americansvdon’t know that we are not a democracy, we are a Republic. We each have individual rights that we can stand on, and we need men and women in office that will respect and honor this. And, we need a President that will honor the office that he holds, and honor America.
