FEC may go after conservative sites…like this one

I’m always amazed while we’re just going about trying to live our lives, behind the scenes, nefarious schemes are being plotted against us. The latest comes from the Democrats on the Federal Election Committee. I guess while I was heading to Rocky Top, they were considering rocking this website — and others like it.

As reported by the Washington Examiner, “In a surprise move late Friday, (see what I mean?) a key Democrat on the Federal Election Commission called for burdensome new rules on Internet-based campaigning, prompting the Republican chairman to warn that Democrats want to regulate online political sites and even news media like the Drudge Report.”

“Democratic FEC Vice Chair Ann M. Ravel announced plans to begin the process to win regulations on Internet-based campaigns and videos, currently free from most of the FEC’s rules. “A reexamination of the commission’s approach to the internet and other emerging technologies is long over due,” she said. The power play followed a deadlocked 3-3 vote on whether an Ohio anti-President Obama Internet campaign featuring two videos violated FEC rules when it did not report its finances or offer a disclosure on the ads. The ads were placed for free on YouTube and were not paid advertising.”

Silly me, but I don’t recall the FEC saying anything about “Obama girl” making all her slobbering love affair videos for Obama back in 2008. I don’t recall the FEC having any concern over any videos posted to You Tube attacking conservatives. Once again we are witnessing the abject hypocrisy of the progressive socialist leftist and their heinous intentions to stifle the fundamental right of American free speech. You see, if speech can be used by groups opposing progressive socialists, then it must be regulated — and eventually suppressed.

The Washington Examiner says, “under a 2006 FEC rule, free political videos and advocacy sites have been free of regulation in a bid to boost voter participation in politics. Only Internet videos that are placed for a fee on websites, such as the Washington Examiner, are regulated just like normal TV ads. Ravel’s statement suggests that she would regulate right-leaning groups like America Rising that posts anti-Democrat YouTube videos on its website. FEC Chairman Lee E. Goodman, a Republican, said if regulation extends that far, then anybody who writes a political blog, runs a politically active news site or even chat room could be regulated.

That means this website — no opposition, folks — and you can bet there will be some type of loophole for far left sites — just as we saw the IRS attack conservative groups but liberal progressive socialist groups went rather unimpeded.

Perhaps the Federal Elections Committee (FEC) should be concerned about Obama campaign financing — or how about illegal immigrants voting in elections going back to 2008? This is just another example of the reckless lawlessness of the Democrat party which is already seeking how to suppress opposing voices for the 2016 election cycle. Remember the Fairness Doctrine, which was the progressive socialist attempt to “make talk radio fair?” In other words liberal talk radio is failing and kinda sucks, but we can’t allow these pesky conservative right-wingers to have an unopposed voice.

The Examiner says “Ravel plans to hold meetings next year to discuss regulating the internet. She charged that groups placing paid TV ads use the FEC exemption to disseminate similar messages on the internet, regulation-free. But Goodman says that Ravel misconceives the exemption. If the same message that is run on TV also is posted online, it is regulated, he said. The Internet exemption applies only to videos posted for free, solely on the Internet. Blasting the exemption, she said, “Since its inception this effort to protect individual bloggers and online commentators has been stretched to cover slickly-produced ads aired solely on the Internet but paid for by the same organizations and the same large contributors as the actual ads aired on TV,” Ravel argued.”

Folks, the seeds are being planted and we must be aware. The only thing staving off this assault is the chairman of the FEC. Stay alert to this development and we’ll continue to track any actions. The frontline fight for liberty and free speech is right here.

JFK led the way in attacking your political rivals with the IRS and installed the recording devices that help take down Nixon. This adminstration leaves no dirty trick unused to subvert the country!

that must explain why you have internet access in your FEMA camp …… oh wait, you have just as much freedom now as you did before Obama was elected, maybe you could google the word “sedition” and then compare it to what West does, it’s free speech and he has the constitutional right to say it, but he’s just a liar for refusing to admit it

Wow drama queen much Keith! I pointed out Historical past and you take it to turn on MR. West and take a shot at me. Why is it that you refused to address what I said and instead choose to take a shot. Maybe you should google “reality” or perhaps even “reading comprehension”. Oh and lastly lets please talk about lying, how many lies has your hero told while standing in front of the Presidential seal?

Of course our government is seeing their lies, deceit and down right illegal activity come out over the internet and sites like this. They can’t have that. They only want us to get our information from the corrupt media that they approve of. Question is, what are we going to do about it?

The Sky is falling, the Sky is falling. What a whiny little girl West sounds like. How in the heck is something done out in the open, subject to open meeting laws, note taking and the FOIA — something that made its way to a conservative newspaper and then onto this radical fringe website in less than three days — considered a behind the scenes plot? Further, how would a set of regulations that are neutral on party affiliation – and thereby just as much an imposition radical (D) sites as they would be to radical (R) sites somehow hypocrisy?… Read more »

Whaah, Whaah, p*ss and moan! Is there any wonder why this panty waist cretin was thrown out of the military. My God, the RepubliKKKlan party has become more effeminate than Liberace.

If they should try to prohibit sites like yours Col. West, I can assure you, that I and many more Americans WILL rise up and demand the resignation of such cowards!! I will begin a letter writing campaign that will touch every single elected officials, and I will stand up next to you and fight against this deplorable action. FREE speech is what this country is about….. our FREEDOMS are too precious to lose and we simply cannot stand by and let these bureaucrats usurp our rights!

Keith Brackett

be very careful with that statement, if West thinks you mean that liberals have as much a right to free speech as people like him you’ll quickly find yourself being described as an enemy by him

No sir!! It is YOU who is the disgrace!! You would gladly allow the government goons to silence this man and others who think like him. YOU should be ashamed! What is wrong with you??? Are you that blind to what is going on with this government or are you one of those who thinks he might get just a tad bit of power yourself, therefore making you a big rat in a small stinkhole?

Government GOODS don’t even know who this man is! This is a POLITICAL NOBODY that is manipulating you loons to make him wealthy! Notice that he isn’t running for office. Notice that Sarah Palin just mentioned she *MAY* run for office. Neither will run for office because its just too much money to be made from you LOONS!!!

That’s one reason as to why they are called “occupiers”. No doubt Colorado is seeing a surge in the dopeheads.

It is becoming more and more obvious that they are shooting for a full fledged ministry of propaganda in what is becoming, more and more, a banana republic. They want all of their questionable dealings, conduct, and slip-ups concealed. They want to control what “information” the media puts out, so that they can have their way but issue a press release that blankets what is really going on. They also want to control information to “keep the peace” in that the powers that be will be viewed as more intelligent, and more for the “common man” than they really are.… Read more »
