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.

Time is getting shorter and shorter.

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 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,

President Barack Obama has declined to attend a dedication ceremony in October for a new memorial honoring American veterans who have been disabled fighting for their country in wars, according to sources close to the event. The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial (AVDLM), the first such memorial of its kind, is set to be dedicated during a ceremony on Oct. 5 near the National Mall in downtown Washington, D.C. However, Obama, who was first invited to attend the event in January, will not be among those in attendance, according to a source who is familiar with the situation. This

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia. "Hospitals, clinics, and the few treatment centers that do exist have been completely overwhelmed." The president was particularly dire

The musician, who converted to Islam in 1977 and put his career on hold, will play six concerts in December. The 66-year-old, who was inducted into the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year, is now known by his original stage name and Yusuf. He is best known for his 1971 recording of Christian hymn Morning Has Broken, a top 10 hit in both the UK and US. Stevens had a number of other hits during

Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post´s statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections. Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University´s John Sides -- warned that the model could and

The Obama administration is preparing to introduce major steps to phase out production of a popular chemical coolant used in refrigerators and air conditioners, citing growing evidence that the substance is contributing to the warming of the planet. The White House will announce on Tuesday a series of voluntary commitments by some of the country’s largest chemical firms and retailers to move rapidly away from R-134a and similar compounds used in nearly every office, home and automobile in the country, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the effort. The administration is simultaneously stepping up diplomatic efforts to

Brown was shot dead in Ferguson, Missouri on August 9, 2014 after he robbed a local Ferguson convenience store. Brown reportedly smashed police officer Darren Wilson in the face, severely injuring Wilson, before he was shot dead. Protesters threatened continued rioting and violence if Officer Wilson is let off.

Bill Clinton never inhaled. Rush Limbaugh says he never smoked it. Marco Rubio won´t answer whether he ever did smoke pot but Sarah Palin admitted she smoked it in her youth and didn´t like it. Those pushing to have more states legalize marijuana consider this drug rather harmless, medically beneficial and liberal politicians consider this issue one that will attract voters. I don´t blame Rubio for not discussing whether he indulged n his youth or not. He is a public official with young children and carries a different responsibility than the rest of us.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand dropped an f-bomb during an interview Monday, while trashing a loudmouth male colleague who criticized her weight. The New York Democrat said she was enraged when the politician had the gall to tell her she was too fat to win election after giving birth to her second child. “I had to just sit there and talk to him,” Gillibrand said in the interview, posted on the Huffington Post. “I switched the subject and I didn’t hear another word he said, but I wasn’t in a place where I could tell him to go f–k himself.”

On Monday, the 50-year-old politician was photographed by paparazzi looking fresh-faced without any cosmetics on. But instead of getting mad about the slyly snapped no-makeup shots, the former Alaska governor took to Facebook to joke about the incident.

Bill Cosby played the devoted father and loving family man on television for years, but off camera, Mr. Nice Guy had a volatile temper, played the Hollywood big shot and was a hard-partying philanderer. With riches and success, Cosby indulged himself in illicit affairs in Las Vegas and partied with abandon in Los Angeles with celebrity swingers and Playboy bunnies at Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Mansion, while his wife Camille was ensconced in their home. Cosby´s world came crashing down when an old lover from the summer of 1975, Shawn Berkes, approached him with a child she claimed was his and
