Screw America – Liberty Is Officially Dead In This Country

Jailed Christian Clerk

For the first time in our entire history, a Christian is jailed for exercising her faith and refusing to obey a lawless Supreme Court decision that had no power to create law or rights out of thin air.

Look at that picture again.  That is the future for biblical Christians in America – prison…. or worse.  All to the cheers of a hedonistic mob that worships the State and holds whatever an Activist Supreme Court says as Holy Writ, rather than abide what the Living God of scripture says.

The First Amendment is officially abolished… for biblical Christians – by default with this act of tyranny.  Yesterday it was bakeries and photographers who refused to comply with the homosexual agenda.  Today it is elected officials. Tomorrow – it will be you.  Already there are calls to ban devout Christians from running for or holding public office.

How long before there are calls to put Christians in camps or make them wear yellow crosses on their lapels?

Don’t roll your eyes.  History teaches this is exactly where all of this goes.

See, it is not enough that accommodations are made for her faith – as Genesis 19 clearly illustrates, you MUST approve, condone and even PARTICIPATE in wickedness that an evil mob and society says you must take part in.

District Court Judge David Bunning says Kim Davis will remain in jail “Until she complies” with the order and the “law” of approving homosexual marriage by affixing her name to marriage licenses.

After U.S. marshals took Davis into custody, she is expected to remain in jail until she agrees to comply with Bunning’s order, whom ordered her six deputy clerks to stand before him and state whether or not they would comply with his order to issue marriage licenses, at the risk of facing their own contempt penalties.

These creatures in government – who advocate defying laws when it does not suit their agendas and ignore those laws they disagree with – now demand compliance with their agenda.

So what we had here was a modern-day Nebuchadnezzar moment, an Activist Supreme Court has erected a giant golden statue in the image of homosexual marriage – and has decreed that everyone must bow down and give obeisance to it.  Kim Davis has refused to bow to the godless image of abomination.  She was brought before the Court of men, and threatened.  In essence she has said that God is strong enough to save her out of the fiery trial, but that EVEN IF HE DOESN’T – she STILL  WILL NOT BOW DOWN to their “law”.

So into prison she was cast, and will remain there it is said, until she complies.

America has become an evil and wicked nation.  It murdered an entire generation of Americans in the womb as a fundamental ‘right’, to the tune of over 55 MILLION infants.  It sells their body parts for millions of dollars in an industry that would make the Nazis blush.  It is forcing all to accept homosexual abomination under penalty of law while declaring it good, right and holy.

This country deserves EVERY horrifying thing that is about to happen to it, and I for one will not lift a finger or offer a single prayer to defend it. It deserves the Judgment that is coming and we will all suffer for it.

So be it.

Vengeance is the Lord’s, and let it come.   America deserves what God says He will do to a nation of His people who forget their God and practice evil in His sight.

I CALL UPON EVERY BELIEVER, EVERY CONSTITUTIONALIST, EVERY LOVER OF LIBERTY TO STAND WITH KIM DAVIS

“Today, judicial lawlessness crossed into judicial tyranny. Today, for the first time ever, the government arrested a Christian woman for living according to her faith. This is wrong. This is not America.

“I stand with Kim Davis. Unequivocally. I stand with every American that the Obama Administration is trying to force to chose between honoring his or her faith or complying with a lawless court opinion.

“In dissent, Chief Justice Roberts rightly observed that the Court’s marriage opinion has nothing to do with the Constitution. Justice Scalia observed that the Court’s opinion was so contrary to law that state and local officials would choose to defy it.

“For every politician — Democrat and Republican — who is tut-tutting that Davis must resign, they are defending a hypocritical standard. Where is the call for the mayor of San Francisco to resign for creating a sanctuary city — resulting in the murder of American citizens by criminal illegal aliens welcomed by his lawlessness?

“Where is the call for President Obama to resign for ignoring and defying our immigration laws, our welfare reform laws, and even his own Obamacare?

“When the mayor of San Francisco and President Obama resign, then we can talk about Kim Davis.

“Those who are persecuting Kim Davis believe that Christians should not serve in public office. That is the consequence of their position. Or, if Christians do serve in public office, they must disregard their religious faith–or be sent to jail.

“Kim Davis should not be in jail. We are a country founded on Judeo-Christian values, founded by those fleeing religious oppression and seeking a land where we could worship God and live according to our faith, without being imprisoned for doing so.

“I call upon every Believer, every Constitutionalist, every lover of liberty to stand with Kim Davis. Stop the persecution now.”

The REAL Motive for Hillary/Obama Blaming Youtube Video For Benghazi

ShariaforWest

Anti-Islam Youtube Video created by a patsy agent of Obama’s Justice Department, intended as a pretext to criminalize anything critical of Islam in the United States.

“Anti-Islam Rhetoric ‘Must Be Rejected’ By All Who Respect Our Common Humanity” – Barrack Obama, September 25, 2012

I blogged yesterday on the story about the Muslim agent pretending to be a Coptic Christian used by Obama’s Justice Department to create a Youtube Video insulting Islam.  In going back and reviewing statements both Obama and Hillary made in the wake of the Benghazi attack by an Al Qaeda offshoot that killed 4 Americans – I found an out-of-place insistent statement made by both of them; that the U.S. Government was NOT responsible for the video.

Why make and repeat that insistence out front without anyone making an insinuation??  No one accused them of doing so – yet both of them vociferously stated it.  WHY?

Well, I contend that Obama’s regime WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR MAKING THE VIDEO.  A stooge patsy Muslim, coerced into working for Obama’s Justice Department, portrayed himself as a Coptic Christian and made the video probably at the Behest of Obama – FOR THE PURPOSE OF CRIMINALIZING ANYTHING CRITICAL OF ISLAM.

Infamous ‘Muhammad-video’ filmmaker actually a Muslim agent for Obama admin

Snip:

It also turns out that the official terms of Nakoula’s parole in 2009 was bogus, and that the administration used his parole as leverage to help him with their agenda: To create a climate for non-Muslim governments to enact laws that make criticism of Islam a criminal offense.

Sound far fetched? Well then I guess you haven’t heard about the ‘Istanbul Process’ meetings Hillary went to in Turkey as Secretary of State that were designed to help facilitate the creation of a “climate for non-Muslim governments to enact laws that make criticism of Islam a criminal offense.”

But before Nakoula could get the video finished, Benghazi happened and the administration quickly blamed it on that video.

Here’s info about this ‘Instanbul Process’ Hillary sought to implement:

HillaryInstanbulProcess

The United Nations, at the behest of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and with the support of the U.S. government, succeeded in passing Resolution 16/18, which requires Western democracies to enact legislation preventing the “defamation of religions”.

The summit meeting on July 15, 2011 between Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and OIC Secretary General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu in Istanbul launched what became known “Istanbul Process”. Mrs. Clinton committed the United States to a partnership with the Islamic world for the purpose of implementing the legislative results required by the agreement.

Shortly after the 9-11 attack in Benghazi, the Obama regime hosted a confab to address criminalizing speech and content critical of Islam:

State Dept. Official to Attend OIC Meeting Today on Banning ‘Defamation of Islam’

The headquarters of the General Secretariat of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation will host a symposium on “Defamation Acts against Islam: conflict dimensions and perspectives of co-existence between Islam and the West” on Monday 19/11/2012.

Word of this meeting got out as facts about Benghazi were emerging and the OIC scrubbed it’s website.

OIC Scrubs Website, Screenshot Added, Cover-Up Begins

The OIC has made no secret of its intentions to use the UN and international law to criminalize what they consider to be “defamation of Islam.”  But now, no more mention of Anne Casper attending today’s OIC session on banning “defamation of Islam.” Let the cover-up begin!

Are you shocked the Obama regime would attempt to create a situation to implement aspects of Sharia Law by restricting speech that is critical of Islam in the USA?   Consider this: Obama himself told the world that free speech should not apply to commentary that can be construed as ‘anti-Islamic’ by Muslims.  He did this IN FRONT of the UN in 2012 and essentially reiterated what the Instanbul Process demanded by the OIC:

So what you have here in this picture all the puzzle pieces make, is that Obama and his regime are CREATING pretexts via inciting violence to abolish the American Constitution and your Rights.  He did this with Operation Fast & Furious running guns to Mexican drug cartels in order to infringe on the Second Amendment.  Now we are learning he attempted it again – by creating a Youtube video insulting of Islam as a pretext for violence so as to implement the Instanbul Process.  Obama did this while he was running guns to Al Qaeda in Syria and ultimately intended to use it as an excuse to infringe and regulate the First Amendment that his regime blamed for Benghazi.

God Bless A Godless And Wicked America?

LibertyisShamed

We live in a postmodern, post-Constitutional and post-God nation. Do not be deceived. There is a war on religious liberty, the true target is Christianity.

Perfectly stated by Todd Starnes from Fox News.

The answer is NO.  If the churches of this nation will not repent – why should God bless a nation that spits in His Face and kicks Him out of the country while His followers sit idle on their hands and remain silent in the face of evil?

 

Can God bless a Godless America?

The White House is waging an all-out assault on religious liberty. Public schools are indoctrinating our children with the gospel of secularism. Hollywood is spewing toxins into our homes. The soundtrack of our lives is a pulsating mix of sex and violence and filth. The American family is in ruins. What was once wrong is now right and what was once right is now wrong.

Our nation stands on a precipice. Freedom hangs in the balance. We live in a postmodern and post-God nation. The perfect storm is brewing. Do not be deceived. There may be a war on religious liberty, but the true target is Christianity.

Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, and Kelly Shackelford, president of Liberty Institute, penned an open letter to the American people last year. Hostility against religious liberty has reached an all-time high, they warned. The freedom of religion is being pushed out of public life, schools and even churches.

The freedom of religion is being pushed out of public life, schools and even churches.

“Our Founding Fathers considered religious liberty our ‘first freedom,’ and the bedrock upon which all other freedoms rest,” the men wrote. “They understood that one’s right to worship God and follow his conscience according to the principles of his religious faith was foundational to civic tranquility. A man whose religious faith was repressed could never be a loyal citizen since the state was usurping his first allegiance and costing him his primary freedom. This is one of the most important distinctions that makes America an exceptional nation — if not the most important.”

Both groups document more than 600 recent examples of religious hostility. Six hundred. American stories. Our stories. Their documentation included many stories I have covered during my career at Fox News Channel.

The Obama administration wants to force religious organizations and Christian business owners to provide insurance for birth control and abortion-inducing drugs in direct violation of their religious beliefs. The military conducted training sessions that labeled Evangelical Christians and Catholics as examples of religious extremists. The Internal Revenue Service launched investigations into pro-life organizations, demanding to know the contents of their prayers.

This is happening right here, right now, in the United States of America. We are under attack from within — from an enemy who wants to remove any mention of God from the public marketplace.

In recent days, a Florida child was bullied by his public schoolteacher for reading his Bible during “free reading time.” The teacher was recorded on a voice mail message telling the child’s parents that “he’s not permitted to read those books in my classroom.”

Seventh-day Adventist preacher Eric Walsh was suspended with pay from his job as the public health director of Pasadena, Calif., after critics exposed videos of sermons in which he preached that homosexuality is a sin. Pasadena officials told local reporters the pastor was placed on paid leave while they investigate his sermons and determine whether he has the ability to lead a department that he’s headed since 2010.

A while back Rev. Billy Graham penned a letter expressing his dismay over the moral decline of the nation, declaring that his “heart aches for America and its deceived people.”

“The farther we get from God, the more the world spirals out of control,” Graham wrote, noting that the nation seems to be going out of its way to remove God from the public arena. “Just a few weeks ago in a prominent city in the South, Christian chaplains who serve the police department were ordered to no longer mention the Name of Jesus in prayer,” he wrote, noting that officers were only allowed to pray to “the being in the room.”

“Our society strives to avoid any possibility of offending anyone —  except God,” he continued.

We ask God to bless America, but we elected a president whose pastor asked God to damn America. We ask God to bless America, but we slaughter millions of unborn babies. We ask God to bless America, but we silence His children.

God bless America? We should be on our knees asking for His mercy instead. The time has come for people of faith to rise up and claim their Ebenezer. We need patriots who will take back this land. We need patriots who will say we are still one nation under God.

The storm clouds are gathering. The winds of revolution are blowing, friends. Religious liberty is under attack.

Years ago the Christian songwriter Steve Green penned a song titled, “Find Us Faithful.” It was a prayer that all who came after us would find this generation of believers faithful. The call still rings true today.

In these early days of the 21st century, the fire is flickering and the footprints are few. Storm clouds are gathering. The winds of persecution are blowing. But friends, no matter how difficult these days have become, let not your heart be troubled.

The time has come, brothers and sisters, my fellow countrymen. Who among you is willing to take a stand for religious liberty? Who among you is will to risk everything for the cause of Christ? Who among you is willing to rise up and declare that we are still one nation under God?

“If my people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land,” the Scriptures declare.

The most pressing problem facing America can’t be solved in Washington, D.C. True hope and change can’t be found at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. It can only be found at the foot of the cross
on Calvary.

Our government may spy on our phone lines. It may throw us in jail. It may take away our photography shops and bakeries. It may demand to know the content of our prayers. But we will not be bullied. We will not be intimidated. We will not be silenced.

Obama’s FCC To “Police” News And Media

FCC-Regulate-Press

The MarxoFascists in the Obama regime are planning to regulate the news and impose a new oversight program of what is reported and why.

This is no surprise move to anyone paying attention.  The control of information is vital to a dictatorship and brutal tyranny.  Such a regime cannot allow dissent, freedom of speech or the reporting of news that showcases the nefarious deeds of rulers to a populace that has it’s minds shaped by propaganda.

There has already been talk by Congress creeps suggesting the government require the licensing of ‘legitimate’ journalists.  For it has been said by ranking MarxoFascist Democrats that First Amendment press rights should not pertain to bloggers and anyone who is not a ‘legitimate’ journalist.

The new FCC plan will use “researchers” placed in the news reporting industry to determine what is reported, how it is reported and why.  This is just an opening salvo, for the real target they intend to intimidate and silence is the internet blogs and Conservative talk radio.

Combined with using the IRS to intimidate and fine Conservative groups, prohibiting them from political activism – the MarxoFascist dream of silencing dissent will be realized.

The FCC Plan To Police The Newsrooms

First Amendment: The FCC has cooked up a plan to place “researchers” in U.S. newsrooms, supposedly to learn all about how editorial decisions are made. Any questions as to why the U.S. is falling in the free press rankings?

As if illegal seizures of Associated Press phone records and the shadowy tailing of the mother of a Fox News reporter weren’t menacing enough, the Obama administration is going out of its way to institute a new intrusive surveillance of the press, as if the press wasn’t supine enough.

Ajit Pai, a commissioner with the Federal Communications Commission, warned this week in a Wall Street Journal op-ed that a plan to dispatch researchers into radio, television and even newspaper newsrooms called the “Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs” is still going forward, despite the grave danger it presented to the First Amendment.

Pai warned that under the rationale of increasing minority representation in newsrooms, the FCC, which has the power to issue or not issue broadcasting licenses, would dispatch its “researchers” to newsrooms across America to seek their “voluntary” compliance about how news stories are decided, as well as “wade into office politics” looking for angry reporters whose story ideas were rejected as evidence of a shutout of minority views.

Pai questioned if such a study could really be voluntary, given FCC’s conflict of interest (and, he might have added, the Obama record of going after political opponents).

The origin of the idea is a recrudescence of the Fairness Doctrine, inoperative since 1987 or so, to provide equal time to leftist points of view in broadcasting and other media that otherwise wouldn’t have a willing audience in a free market.

It’s an idea so fraught with potential for abuse it ought to have news agencies screaming bloody murder. The very idea of Obama hipsters showing up in newsrooms, asking questions and judging if newspapers (over which they have no jurisdiction), radio and TV are sufficiently diverse is nothing short of thought control.

But the reaction from the National Association of Broadcasters was mealy-mouthed. The FCC “should reconsider” “qualitative” sections of its study, it wrote.

The FCC now says it will be “closely reviewing the proposed research design to determine if an alternative approach is merited,” as a result of Pai’s warning. Adweek actually reported that as a “retreat.”

It’s because of this don’t-rock-the-boat attitude that Reporters Without Borders said the U.S. had “one of the most significant declines” in press freedom in the world last year, dropping 13 places to a wretched 46th in its newly released global ranking. If the FCC has its way, it can drop even further.

Sharia Implementation: Posting Anything “Mean” About Muslims, Is Now A Federal Criminal Act

ObamaShhhharia

The First Amendment is dead as U.S. Attorney says posting anything negative about Islam is a Federal violation of civil rights laws.

The hits from the Obama regime just keep on coming, and coming and coming.

Yesterday it was reported that Obama’s regime (with help from John McCain)  is committing treason by arming Al Qaeda-backed rebels in Syria who slaughtered an entire Christian village.

syria-christian-massacre

Members of the Free Syrian Army reportedly attacked the Christian-dominated al-Duvair village in Reef on the outskirts of Homs on Monday, where they massacred its citizens, including women and children…The U.S. and other Western governments that are backing the FSA have acknowledged the presence of jihadists but insist that they’re only a small part of the rebel movement. However, al-Qaeda and other Islamic extremist groups have been at the front of the rebel movement since day one of the Syrian war that began two years ago. According to German intelligence, 95 percent of the rebels aren’t even Syrian.

The slaughter was committed as an effort by the Jihadists to implement Sharia Law in Dictator Assad’s formerly secularist Syria.

Why is this issue of concern for us in America?  Well, aside from Obama helping to create an Islamic Caliphate in the Middle East, the Obama regime is implementing by default, Sharia right here as part of Federal Law.

U.S. Attorney for the Obama Federalies  asserts posting the truth about Jihadists and radical Islamists is now a violation of Federal law.  This is defacto implementation of Sharia Law under the guise of protecting ‘civil rights’ for Jihadists and radical Muslims.   Interestingly, that application of ‘civil rights laws’  does not extend to Christians.  Everyone, including Muslims are free to demonize, denounce and insult Christianity and Christians for their faith and no such criminal violation of  ‘civil rights laws’ will be applied or upheld.

Well, I for one will continue to post the TRUTH about Jihadists and radical Muslims until I am forced to stop.  And you can be sure, this regime is going to attempt to force us to shut up.

Why do you think they obtained all that data and collected all those e-mails, cell numbers and texts from the press corps?

You need to be asking yourself, ‘how long before speaking ill of homosexuals, or the Democrats or Obama will be made a Federal crime?’  My guess is soon now.  This regime has reached the point of power that it believes it can do whatever it wants to do without any consequences.   Obama and the MarxoFascist war on the First Amendment and the press has reached the bombardment phase.

Think Hitler versus the Munich Post in the 30’s.  Think Soviet, because that is where we have arrived.

From Breitbart today.

US Attorney Bill Killian: Posting Something Mean About Muslims on Social Media Might Be a Criminal Action Under Federal Civil Rights Laws

The First Amendment served us well for a time, but now it’s outdated.

Remember reading that England had arrested a guy for anti-Muslim Twitter postings in the aftermath of the Woolrich slaughter? And remember thinking, “Well, this is America, that can’t happen here”?
Oh yes it can. Obama’s Attorney for the Eastern district of Tennessee wants you to know that if you say something untoward about Muslims, the Federal government may imprison you.

Killian and Moore will provide input on how civil rights can be violated by those who post inflammatory documents targeted at Muslims on social media. “This is an educational effort with civil rights laws as they play into freedom of religion and exercising freedom of religion,” Killian told The News Monday. “This is also to inform the public what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are.” … Killian said Internet postings that violate civil rights are subject to federal jurisdiction.

The posting he offers as a “for instance” is an egregious one. And yet this country has long protected, absolutely, egregious speech, such as hardcore pornography, for a simple reason: Either you are at liberty to say what you will or you are not. If you are constantly double-thinking every word you might say, for fear of being prosecuted, you are self-censoring, in anticipation of a possible prosecution by the government.

Rather than having a system in which people were constantly worried about imprisonment for speech, our country has evolved a simple bright-line code: Speech of all kinds, with a few exceptions that can be counted on three fingers, is absolutely protected.

Remember, the importance of this bright-line, no-exceptions rule of free speech was preached to us, even when some of us might not have liked it so much, as when hardcore pornography was afforded absolute protection under the First Amendment. In the case of hardcore pornography, it was argued — successfully — that having each artist weigh the possibility of an obscenity prosecution was too much of a burden on his free speech rights, and would have, unavoidably, a chilling effect on speech.

That was the rule then, and that was the rationale.

But now comes the Obama Administration to tell you that Yes, you just might be imprisoned for something you say online, so you’d better Watch What You Say.

Remember when Ari Fleischer said that, without suggesting any kind of legal penalties? Remember how the media freaked out?

But now comes the US Attorney for the Eastern district of Tennessee explicitly telling you that you may be imprisoned if a political appointee decides your political speech has crossed a line.

Somehow, I don’t think Tim Robbins will be portentously howling us that a “chill wind” is blowing across our rights of free expression this week.

More from Flopping Aces, who dug up video of Obama “joking” about using the IRS to punish those who he does not like to make the point that much of what Obama ‘joked’ about or made mention of during 2008-2009 – is being IMPLEMENTED.

Obama: Islam Trumps First Amendment

“The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam”. – Barackus Obamanus I

“This is to inform the public what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are…Internet postings that violate civil rights are subject to federal jurisdiction. That’s what everybody needs to understand,” – Bill Killian Federal U.S. Attorney on behalf of Obama DOJ

Senator Dick Durbin Says First Amendment Is “Out Of Date”

DurbinCommunist

Thinks Bloggers and Twitter Users do not have First Amendment Rights. Suggests Government has the right to silence those who are ‘not approved’ journalists.

In answering the charges made against the Obama Regime’s targeting and seizing of private phone records of AP reporters and employees, AND the criminal targeting and intimidation of Fox News reporter James Rosen by Obama’s INJustice Department, Little Dick Durbin defended Obama’s actions by in-essence stating the Constitution is out of date in regards to journalism.  He suggested to Chris Wallace of Fox News’ that he believes certain people should not have First Amendment Rights, and then went on to say that the Constitution is out of date in 2013.  He asks if the Constitution applies to Bloggers and Twitter Users;  “Are these people journalists and entitled to constitutional protection? We need to ask 21st century questions about a provision that was written over 200 years ago.”

So in Durbin’s feeble MarxoFascist mindset, only Government-approved entities in the press should be allowed the freedom of press and speech.

Here’s more vía the Daily Caller:

On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” Illinois Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin said that it was too early to call for a special counsel to look into the Justice Department’s monitoring of journalists.

Instead, Durbin said he backed a “media shield law,” but was not sure if such a law would protect bloggers or “someone who is tweeting.”

Durbin asks “What is a journalist today in 2013? We know it’s someone that works for Fox or AP, but does it include a blogger? Does it include someone who is tweeting? Are these people journalists and entitled to constitutional protection? We need to ask 21st century questions about a provision that was written over 200 years ago.”

Ed Morrissey of Malkin’s Hot Air adds some more thoughts:

Does First Amendment apply to bloggers, Twitter?

Thanks to the Obama administration’s attacks on the Associated Press and its representation in federal court that Fox News’ James Rosen is a spy for asking questions, one has to wonder whether the First Amendment applies to anyone in the Age of Hope and Change.  Fox News host Chris Wallace asked Senator Dick Durbin whether Barack Obama’s promise to have Eric Holder look into cases of abuse that he personally approved represents a conflict of interest, but Durbin dodges that question and talks instead about the shield law proposed repeatedly over the last few years as the appropriate Congressional response to the scandal.  However, Durbin asks what exactly “freedom of the press” means in 2013, and wonders aloud whether it would include bloggers, Twitter users, and the rest of the Internet media

Here’s what the First Amendment actually says: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”  Press at the time would certainly have meant newspapers, which were the high-tech information revolution of the day. It would also have included pamphleteers, perhaps even more than newspapers, as pamphleteers helped drive revolutionary sentiment.  Their modern-day analogs would arguable be bloggers and Twitter users, those who reported news and proclaimed opinions outside of the establishment press.

However, Durbin’s asking the wrong question.  The question isn’t who gets protected, but what.  Journalism is not an identity or a guild, but an action and a process — and anyone engaged in that activity must be treated equally before the law.  A shield law based on membership via employment in privileged workplaces or certified by guilds doesn’t protect journalism, it becomes rent-seeking behavior that ensures that only the large players get protected, as I wrote ten days ago.

Durbin’s question isn’t even the biggest non-sequitur in this argument.  The biggest non-sequitur is the shield law itself, which wouldn’t have even addressed the Rosen or AP situation.  And considering that the Obama administration ignored existing statutes in both cases, why should we believe they would obey a shield law when it got in their way?

What we have here, is a MarxoFascist regime and it’s sycophants like Durbin, TRAITORS ALL – attacking the First Amendment directly.  They have attacked Christians in their right of Free Exercise, they have attacked TEA Party groups, Conservative groups, anti-Abortion groups by using the IRS to attack them.  They are waging war to abolish the Second Amendment, they already ignore the Fourth and Tenth Amendments, and now finally they think they are powerful enough to attack the Press and decide whom can and whom cannot ask questions of this regime, or whom is allowed freedom to speak.

What’s the purpose of intent behind Durbin’s public comment?  REGULATING the First Amendment.  Demanding government decide who is and who is NOT a journalist.  Perhaps some kind of licensing scheme – and in the process (and argument that you cannot yell “fire!” in a crowded theater) they will say, speech and the press are weapons that must be regulated to demand “responsible” speech and press.  After all, this same bunch is currently arguing that Americans support giving up their Second Amendment Rights for “common sense” gun control.  Soon I imagine they will be saying that we must give up our first Amendment rights for ‘common sense’ press regulations.

This is not just about politics either.  It covers regulating speech about Islam.  Obama just last week warned Burma against persecuting Muslims – yet in his term of office, NOT A WORD about Islam persecuting Christians, the slaughter of Christians in Egypt or Sudan.  Who arrested a man for posting a Youtube video making fun of Islam.  Who told the world  that “The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet Mohammed”.

ObamaCommunist

We’re now in a full blown tyranny that if left intact, will not be satisfied by stripping us of what remains of our birthrights.  They will never be satisfied.  History shows that these same people, with this same ideology, do not rest until they exterminate their opposition in legally-sanctioned genocide.

Because that is where all of this goes folks.

The Ruling Class Moves To Silence The TEA Party.

On top of being called “Hobbits“, “Terrorists” and “Extremists” by our nation’s leaders including the Vice President; Commissioning the DHS to draft an Assessment that classifies them as “Domestic Terrorists“; enacting a national strategy to ‘counter violent extremists’ – Conservative Americans and TEA Party members have yet another effort being suggested by our nation’s leaders to deal with them: Silence their freedom of speech.

This is where it begins folks – the full-on efforts by the Ruling Class and our political leaders to not only criminalize you – but silence you.  First by the same methods Hitler initially used; via shunning and boycott which is never enough for tyrants who will historically ALWAYS resort to using thugs to physically bully and intimidate them into silence, before the State purges the threat they declare upon their political enemies.

It is now a wide use tactic of the Left in this nation, when confronted with the truth – to state that your concerns or questions are “not legitimate”.  This gives them cover with the aid of complicit media to dodge any accountability or public scorn.  Soon however, that becomes unnecessary as raw contemptuous arrogance replaces any need to attempt a deflection such as when Nancy Pelosi was asked what authority the Constitution gives them to mandate the American people must buy health insurance – whereupon she replied “Are you serious?” followed by contempt in refusing to answer the question and declaring “That’s not a serious question”.

From there historically, it moves to the demonization of the opposition as ‘terrorists’ that we witnessed last week, which will be followed by efforts to mandate that any and all concerns by the opposition to the ruling class be ignored and discarded.  When the opposition to the ruling class resort to their own efforts and assymetric solutions towards their cause and message getting out – the ruling class will simply make those efforts illegal and penalize anyone giving aid and comfort to those opposed to them.

Warner Todd Huston lays it all out, as former Presidential candidate and Senator John Kerry states that Conservative views are not “real”, “legitimate” or “factual” and suggests that the news media not cover the opposition viewpoints to this regime now in power.

As Mr. Hudson rightly notes – this is just the latest evidence that the Ruling Class intends to quash free political speech of Conservatives.

Want Proof of How Democrats Would Shut You Up, Tea Partiers?

On MSNBC, John Kerry told us that Tea Party ideas are not “real” ideas, not “factual,” and thinks that the media should stop reporting on anything that smacks of ideas or news coming from Tea Partiers. If this isn’t proof of how Democrats and leftists would use the power of government to quash free political speech, what is?

Not long ago, several Democrats tried to once again raise the ugly head of the defunct Fairness Doctrine that was killed during the Reagan administration in order to limit the free political speech of conservatives. In those dark days when Nancy Pelosi was Speaker of the House of Representatives, several Republicans talked about forever outlawing the anti-free speech rule. Democrats at the time spoke up in favor of the Fairness Doctrine and countered that they wanted to bring it back.

Fortunately, the Fairness Doctrine has not come back. But this un-American policy idea has been talked about by leftists every few years since it was torpedoed by Reagan in 1987. They would love to bring it back. And despite what they claim, the left would use a new Fairness Doctrine to squelch the free political speech of those on the right.

SEN. JOHN KERRY: And I have to tell you, I say this to you politely. The media in America has a bigger responsibility than it’s exercising today. The media has got to begin to not give equal time or equal balance to an absolutely absurd notion just because somebody asserts it or simply because somebody says something which everybody knows is not factual.

It doesn’t deserve the same credit as a legitimate idea about what you do. And the problem is everything is put into this tit-for-tat equal battle and America is losing any sense of what’s real, of who’s accountable, of who is not accountable, of who’s real, who isn’t, who’s serious, who isn’t?

You see? You Tea Partiers are not “legitimate.” You are not “real,” not “serious.” Why, your ideas are so “absurd” that he thinks the Old Media should stop reporting on any politician or activist that spouts those “absurd notions.”

The media, Kerry said, “has got to begin to not give equal time or equal balance.” This means he thinks any ideas that don’t toe the far left, liberal Democrat ideological line should be excluded from reportage, eliminated from the public debate.

Now, imagine what he’d do if he had the power of a renewed Fairness Doctrine under his control? Imagine if he had the power of law behind his claims.

If John Kerry and his comrades on the far left had their way, they’d use the force of law to shut you up, Tea Partiers. The left would not use the Fairness Doctrine for anything “fair.” They’d use it as a but another Alien and Sedition Act to shut down the access to the public square now enjoyed by conservative ideas.

Talk radio, cable TV, newspapers, magazines, the Internet all would be targeted for Kremlin-like control of their contents by Washington D.C. if the left had its way.

In fact, speaking of the Internet, there is a new stealth Fairness Doctrine in the works. It’s called Net Neutrality, just another way for the left to impose state control of the news.
