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.

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,

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

According to a White House transcript of the speech, Obama said the following: “All around the country, wherever I see folks, they always say, oh, Barack, we’re praying for you – boy, you’re so great; look, you got all gray hair, you looking tired. (Laughter.) We’re praying for you.

The man who jumped the White House fence this month and sprinted through the front door made it much farther into the building than previously known, overpowering one Secret Service officer and running through much of the main floor, according to three people familiar with the incident. An alarm box near the front entrance of the White House designed to alert guards to an intruder had been muted at what officers believed was a request of the usher’s office, said a Secret Service official who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

The L.A. Times is warning that the “worst is yet to come” if a grand jury fails to indict white officer Darren Wilson for shooting and killing black 18-year-old Michael Brown. If the grand jury fails to indict the officer who killed Michael Brown, almost everyone here thinks things will get worse. “They’re not going to be looting next time,” said Kevin Seltzer, 30, who lives at an apartment complex near where Brown, 18, was shot. “They’re going to burn the city down.” The article highlights recent indications that the city is “far from finding peace,” including continued clashes with officers, the shooting

Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace asked neurosurgeon and GOP novelty Ben Carson, who is very vocally teasing a presidential run, if his inexperience disqualified him from the office, especially given the results of Obama’s alleged inexperience. “After looking at Barack Obama and what’s happened with his lack of political experience over the last six years, wouldn’t putting Ben Carson in the Oval Office be akin to putting a politician in an operating room and having him perform one of your brain surgeries?” Wallace asked. Shockingly, Carson said no. “I think what is required for leadership is wisdom and the

President Obama said the shooting death of a black teen by a white police officer last month in Ferguson, Missouri, exposed the racial divide in the American justice system that “stains the heart of black children.” Speaking at the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner in Washington on Saturday night, Mr. Obama said the death of Michael Brown “awakened our nation” to a reality that black citizens already understood. “In too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement,” Mr. Obama said. “Too many young men of color feel targeted by law

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

The U.S. had expected the Iraqi army to do more against extremists, president says in acknowledgment of intelligence shortcomings. President Obama acknowledged that the U.S. underestimated the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS, also called ISIL) and overestimated the ability of the Iraqi military to fend off the militant group in an interview that will air Sunday on 60 Minutes. The president was asked by 60 Minutes correspondent Steve Kroft about comments from Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who has said the U.S. not only underestimated ISIS, it also overestimated the ability and will of the

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

The Secret Service was unaware for four days that a man had fired a high-powered rifle at the White House in 2011 in a ´fumbled´ response that left the Obamas furious, says a new report. Officers allegedly performed a string of security lapses after Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez shot at least seven bullets at the executive mansion in Washington from his car. At the time, President Barack Obama, his wife Michelle and their older daughter Malia were not at home, but their younger daughter Sasha and Mrs Obama´s mother, Marian Robinson, were inside. It comes as the Secret Service is facing more questions over

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.
