FEC chair warns of chilling regulations,
book ban on conservative publishers

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard

Original Article

Posted By:Flyball dogs, 7/24/2014 1:04:46 AM

The chairman of the Federal Election Commission today blasted Democratic colleagues opposed to his effort to protect conservative media after they imposed rules on the publisher of Rep. Paul Ryan´s new book, opening the door to future book regulations -- or even a ban. "By failing to affirm this publisher’s constitutional right, statutory right, to disseminate a political book free from FEC conditions and regulations, we have effectively asserted regulatory jurisdiction over a book publisher,” warned Chairman Lee E. Goodman, one of three Republicans on the six-person FEC.

Its like playing whack-a-mole with these democrats. Haven´t any of them a shred of decency? I´ve been giving them the benefit of the doubt until now. I realize they´ve got plenty of kooks in their ranks anxious to snuff out our freedoms. But enough is more than enough. I´m waiting for someone to introduce legislation making it illegal to infringe on our Constitutional rights and anyone who tries to do so will be arrested. Its a sad state of affairs that our country has sunk to this level.

Today, its the FEC. Tomorrow, who knows where the mole will show up. Get your hammers ready.

Just remember, it´s always liberal Democrats who are opposed to freedom of speech.

Liberals are barely 20% of the population (85% of the Democrat elected officials), so we have to illustrate that point to isolate their ideas as extreme (which they are).

That being the case, how can the FEC permit Obama´s 2 faux autobiographies and Hillary´s "Hard Choices"?
Those are nothing but poitical speech.

Libtards will never give up on their assault to our constitutional rights to free speech, freedom of religion, and the right to own a gun. If libtards don´t like conservative publishers, they don´t have to buy any of their books. I certainly don´t buy libtard books.

How the hell does the Federal ELECTIONS Commission have anything whatsoever to do with book publishing? How did they get their slimy hands on the ability to decide what book publishers can publish?

If ever there was an argument for getting rid of these Agencies and starting over again, this is it. It is no accident that only conservative speech is attacked, whether in the tax code, the media or publishing.

This is a huge issue. We might as well have a Ministry of Propaganda.

post #19 is completely correct
this abominable nonsense of "agency law" has absolutely no Constitutional justification. But then, neither does around 80 per cent of the federal government´s activities.
ABOLISH Every.Single.One of these agencies, filled with "Progressive" types eager to remake the nation and the people, is damaging the nation and you are paying for it.
I will disagree with the above on one point. An important point. It is incorrect and frankly foolish to blame the state of affairs on Obumble. And no more correct to blame it solely on the Dhimmicrats. The "moderate/progressive" wing of the Rethuglican party is at least, AT LEAST, as responsible for the matter. Not only have they created some of these illegitimate agencies, they´ve funded them, supported them, expanded their reach, and generally speaking have resisted any and all efforts to even curtail their reach. When was the last time you saw Rethuglicans make any serious effort to abolish even the worst?
I promise, it will not stop with book-banning.
Ready for your subcutaneous microchip?

Reminders of Nazi Germany. Will there be book burnings? Congress should withhold funding of the FEC until the people in question resign or are fired. The people pushing the restrictions have no business in government.

I completely agree with #11. What is the FEC doing in the book publishing business. When did writing and publishing a book become a political campaign? And as to his final statement, we already have a Ministry of Propaganda. It´s know as the Main Stream Media.

#20, most importantly...WE, the People, are ALSO responsible for this. What we don´t seem to get through our thick heads is that we have been sitting on the sidelines becoming more and more complacent and apathetic toward the whole governmental process. We have allowed this to get to this point by not acting and reacting when the incremental changes have been made. We saw this stuff years ago happening but we did nothing but complain. We should ALL be out there organizing, Getting involved, educating others, making our voices heard and making things happen, and we should have been doing this over 30+ years ago.

The stamp of the Jack-boots echoes ever nearer. When will good men cry, "Enough!" and take up arms to fight for our freedom? We are well past the point where our forbears told King George to shove it. We are very nearly at the point where Caligula finished killing the Roman Republic.

The FAA lifted its ban on US airline flights to and from Israel Thursday morning just hours after extending its initial 24-hour ban that went into effect on Tuesday evening. The decision to cancel the flight restrictions came after "working with its US government counterparts to assess the security situation in Israel and carefully reviewing both significant new information and measures the Government of Israel is taking to mitigate potential risks to civil aviation," the FAA said in a statement released Thursday morning. With the exception of British Airways, which continued flying to and from Israel, most major European carriers,

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service.

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

In an interview with Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, the senator, running for re-election to the Senate this year, said: “If I get through my general election, if nobody steps up in the presidential mix, if nobody’s out there talking — me and McCain have been talking — I may just jump in to get to make these arguments,” Graham said.

Speaking at a Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors event last night, Hillary Clinton decided to talk about Alexis de Tocqueville. The problem? She got it wrong -- by about a hundred years. "There´s a wonderful phrase that was first used by Alexis de Tocqueville, who came to the United States in the very early 1930s and traveled around our country," said Hillary Clinton, a probable 2016 presidential candidate. "And he was so amazed at how Americans organized themselves -- you know, coming from aristocratic Europe, which was totally top-down and hierarchical -- he couldn´t believe how many of us were joiners.
