Emergencia: FCC might require Spanish
version of broadcast weather alerts

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Tim Devaney

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/27/2014 9:18:41 PM

The Obama administration is considering whether to require that television broadcasts of emergency announcements be provided in different languages. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on Thursday said it is reconsidering a rule that would provide Spanish broadcasts of emergency alerts and other important announcements. The rule was originally recommended in the wake of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Back then, groups including the Minority Media and Telecommunications Council (MMTC) petitioned the FCC to require broadcasters to notify Spanish listeners in the event of an emergency. "MMTC filed its petition on Sept. 22, 2005, in response to its perceived deficiencies in distributing multilingual emergency information

I´m sick of this regime kowtowing to the illegals!! If they are in this country they should speak English! It´s not enough that every product you buy is now has both languages, coupons, instructions, etc. It´s outrageous!

Our founding documents and all of our laws are written in ONE language. That issue was debated and decided hundreds of years ago. ENGLISH ONLY!

I work in retail at a department store. We have a majority of Hispanic customers. I used to try to help them with my limited Spanish but most of them speak English when they need to--they just choose NOT to speak English. Now I just say ´no´ when they ask if I speak ´Espanol´ and then I walk away. I´m done playing their games.

The European language I prefer is English. Some in Louisiana speak French. Some Amish speak some kind of German, I think. And you´ll find a fair amount of Swedish in northern Minnesota (you betcha). In Little Italy you´ll hear a lot of Italian, and of course you will hear and see Chinese in Chinatown (forget it, Jake). But what allows ALL of us to communicate with each other is that we all speak English. It is the common denominator. All attempts to negate that are nothing more than attempts to undermine America. No more Spanish. The Armada went down in 1588 and Spanish has been irrelevant ever since. Even the Dos Equis commercial about the "most interesting man in the world" is in ... English.

If they are in the U.S. illegally, let them be surprised or go back home if there is bad weather on the horizon. If they are here legally, make then learn to speak in English.

There are stations on the air in every language in the world (or it seems that way) so let those who don´t want to understand English, tune into the stations of their language for constant updates. Why doesn´t the FCC care about Chinese, Greek, French, Farci and all other languages?

A person could be swallowed up by some sort of a typhoon or wild fire, while staying tuned in for the emergency announcement in their chosen language. Or will emergency announcements in english be broadcast last on American TV?

One of the things I agreed with Rep. Peter King about was his bill to make English our language.

If we don´t, there is going to be a mess in a few years, as every group demands that public documents, etc., be translated into their language.

On October, 2011, amid a lethargic economic recovery, President Barack Obama – a man who prided himself on ending wars, not starting them – touted his foreign policy successes. Beyond the successful raid that resulted in the death of Osama bin Laden, Obama noted that he had successfully solved two thorny international puzzles; ending the war in Iraq and successfully prosecuting a brief campaign to stem the violence in Libya. In a speech in the White House, the president made the case for his own competency within an announcement regarding the beginning of the full withdrawal of American troops from the

A new "N-word" -- "nativist" -- has made its way into the immigration debate. Americans who want the influx of Central American children returned to their homes are "nativist" and "isolationist," says Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-Calif.), a member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. "As the United States, as a world leader, we are very good about telling other countries that they must accept refugees from Syria or Ethiopia or Darfur, but when it comes to a humanitarian crisis on our own border -- involving children, no less -- you hear this nativist, isolationist voices saying that, oh, just ship them all back,

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg gave $250,000 to the super PAC supporting Sen. Lindsey Graham, (R-S.C.) in the primary battle he won by a wide margin last month, a source familiar with the donation told POLITICO. The donation is set to be revealed in financial filings made public Tuesday by the West Main Street Values PAC, the source said. The donation is the second Bloomberg has made in recent months to a Republican incumbent facing tea party unrest. Last month, filings showed that Bloomberg donated $250,000 to a super PAC supporting Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) in the rancorous primary

Obama to Open Borders Activists:
“In Another Life, I’d Be On the

Barack Obama met with a group of immigration activists two weeks ago. He told a group of radicals, “In another life, I’d be on the other side of the table.” The Washington Post reported: Two weeks ago, with Republicans criticizing the administration’s handling of the border crisis, Obama gathered advocates for another private meeting at the White House. The session grew heated when some of them criticized the administration’s tough posture toward the children on the border, according to several people who attended. Marshall Fitz, immigration policy director at the Center for American Progress, said that Obama, a former community organizer, told the group

As John Kerry travels from country to country on various diplomatic missions as secretary of state (almost half a million miles so far), he often addresses the staff and their families at the U.S. embassies in the countries he visits. Remarks at these informal gatherings are often more casual than the usual speeches or press appearances, and Kerry often jokes with the staff and recognizes employees of long standing with the State Department. Monday, Kerry had one such opportunity in Vienna, Austria, the last stop on his most recent trip, and towards the end of his talk he recalled his

President Obama said Monday that the only reason that he has been successful in life is because of investments made by his family and his community. “[A]ll a young person needs is knowing that somebody cares about them and believes in them,” the president said Monday during an Iftar dinner celebrating Ramadan, the sixth that he has hosted. “I know I´m only here because a few people -- my mother and my grandparents and dedicated teachers -- took time to invest in me.” Absent from the president’s list of things that helped him get ahead in life is a bloated,

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is envisioning a time when cars will be able to talk with other cars or with America´s roads. He says such technology could prevent crashes, cut down on traffic and save gasoline. Obama on Tuesday will visit a federal highway research center in northern Virginia. The White House says he will highlight partnerships between the Transportation Department, auto-makers and the University of Michigan. The groups are developing and testing vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communications technology. The trip is part of Obama´s push for Congress to shore up funding for highways and transportation. He says that´s key

White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Monday the Obama administration’s foreign policies in a number of areas have enhanced the world’s “tranquility” – a word that raised eyebrows as reporters pointed to situations in Gaza, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Ukraine and the South China Sea. More than one reporter during Monday’s press briefing referred to a front-page Wall Street Journal article highlighting some of those crises, and citing security strategists as saying “the breadth of global instability now unfolding hasn’t been seen since the late 1970s.” “How does the White House react to the notion that the president is a

Widow Of Memorialized Cop Killer

A man who executed a Jersey City, N.J. police officer before being shot and killed himself should have murdered more cops, the man’s widow said at a makeshift memorial on Monday. “He should’ve taken more [officers] with him,” Angelique Campbell told News 12 New Jersey of her husband Lawrence. Early Sunday, Campbell, who was wanted for a previous murder, ambushed 23 year-old rookie officer Melvin Santiago outside of a Walgreen’s. According to authorities, Campbell, 27, allegedly told a by-stander, “Watch the TV news later, I’m going to be famous,” reports the New York Post. But the cold-blooded killing fostered little sympathy

Planned Parenthood staffers are using taxpayer money to instruct underage girls in dangerous and violent sex practices — including whipping, bondage and choking, according to a new video released by the anti-abortion group Live Action Tuesday. The uncensored footage obtained by The Daily Caller shows staffers telling investigators posing as underage girls to experiment with violent sex play in response to generic questions about sex. Staffers at two clinics in Colorado explain to the investigators that a variety of painful sex acts — including biting, chaining, gagging, whipping, choking, using nipple clamps, and more — are completely safe and normal

When you can’t trust an allegedly conservative media outlet to properly cover firearms, it’s time to realize that the entire Second Amendment fight is completely up to you. Starting out innocuously, Fox News reported the Army’s plans to update their pistol arsenal because their current side-arms are obsolete: Army officials say their inventory of more than 200,000 semi-automatic Beretta M9 and Sig Sauer M11 pistols has become outdated, worn out and needs to be replaced with an updated model that also offers more reliability and durability. True. Modern designs based upon Glock’s hammerless, striker-fire system offer many benefits. Springfield and Smith & Wesson

At least 35 Disney World employees have been arrested since 2006 over alleged child sex offences, an investigation has revealed. The suspects included a ticket seller, a concierge and a trainee tour guide at the Florida resort - and even a night shift manager accused of watching child porn at work while he wrote a church sermon. Police caught many in stings modelled on the TV show To Catch a Predator, with undercover officers receiving explicit messages before the suspects agreed to meet at a home rigged with cameras. The latest round of arrests last week netted another 13 suspects, including four

On April 1, the U.S. economy dropped a whopping 2.9 percent for the first three months of the year (no fooling). The American workforce participation rate fell to a 40-year low. One-third of people aged 18-29 have moved back in with their parents. Millions of Americans this summer will enjoy yet another “staycation”: They just can’t afford to go to the beach or the mountains, even for a week — again. (Snip) Forget that the United States is deep into what Mr. Obama dramatically declares a “humanitarian crisis,” that the Middle East is a powder keg about to blow, that Iraq has all but fallen to Islamist terrorists. (Why not forget; the president has.)

A Fox News exclusive reported this morning by Jana Winter inexplicably buried the lede. Winter reports that several dead children have been discovered “washed up along the riverbank” of the Rio Grande, but fails to note that there have been no reports by the Obama administration on this. This indicates a pattern of covering up dead illegal alien kids by the Obama administration. It was two weeks before news was reported on the sole child death acknowledged by the Obama administration, Gilberto Ramos, a 15 year-old boy from Guatemala whose body was found in the Texas brush dead from the

Those grievances range from (but are not limited to) Benghazi, the IRS scandal, the "targeting" of conservative filmmaker Dinesh D´Souza, illegal immigration, the Hobby Lobby Supreme Court case, the treatment of war veterans, the chaos in Iraq and deep reservations about President Obama. "Five years ago, I stated that Obama would take the country apart piece-by-piece, that he would cause a civil war in this country," Voight read on Saturday in a statement on

Inquiring minds wonder if there’s a “G” in the grading repertoire. And that does not stand for “good.” Pollster John Zogby has given President Obama an “F” this week for the White House performance on the global stage, and the researcher has no imminent good news for the president. “Some people have really bad weeks. Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff got an ‘F’ after the nation’s soccer team lost to Germany. But President Obama’s week was just as bad,” Mr. Zogby says. “Israel and the Palestinians are at war again.

According to the Associated Press, Keller is "a married military veteran and newly elected senator who´s pushing for more gun control in Riverdale after his husband was involved in a shooting." Archie Comics´ publisher and co-CEO Jon Goldwater said the way in which Archie will die was carefully chosen.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
