freedoms (3)

Senator Ted Cruz has written a bill that would restore citizens and groups 1st Amendment rights. Unsurprisingly the main stream media have not reported this challenge to their communication monopoly.

Call your Senators and demand they co-sponsor and vote for Ted Cruz’ “Free All Speech Act of 2014”:

S.2416 - Free All Speech Act of 2014

2d Session

S. 2416

To apply laws that restrict the political speech of American citizens to media corporations.


June 3, 2014

Mr.  Cruz introduced the following bill; which was read twice and referred to the Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation


To apply laws that restrict the political speech of American citizens to media corporations.

 Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. Short title.

This Act may be cited as the “Free All Speech Act of 2014”.

SEC. 2.  Application of laws that restrict the political speech of American citizens to media corporations.

(a) In general.—Any law that restricts the political speech of American citizens shall apply with equal force to media corporations, such as the New York Times, the American Broadcasting Company (ABC), the National Broadcasting Company (NBC), and the CBS Television Network.

(b) No application to American citizens if application to media corporations found unconstitutional.—To the extent that the application of a law to a media corporation under subsection (a) is found unconstitutional, such law shall have no force or effect with respect to American citizens.

The IRS is not the major obstacle to the 1st Amendment in America. Stories of IRS oppression swat at a gnat and swallow the proverbial camel.

Hint: Lois Lerner previously worked at the Federal Election Commission an entity dedicated to abridging citizens and groups rights to participate in American politics.

After Watergate, campaign laws were passed:

• But media corporations were exempted creating a State approved press. Is it any wonder news media are among the biggest promoters of campaign law?
• Regulations limited citizen’s donations to politicians. This made it unlikely challengers, who would benefit more from large sums from a few, can defeat incumbents.
• Lawyers have gotten rich defending clients against infractions of myriad, incomprehensible and unconstitutional laws.
• Many non-profits are more concerned with raising donations to defend their tax exemption than restoring 1st Amendment rights to the electorate.

However, freedoms of speech, press and assembly are inalienable rights not privileges. The 1st Amendment does not say unless you assemble as for-profit, non-profit, church, political party, media Corporation or unincorporated group. The 1st Amendment does not limit how much you can spend as an individual or like minded group or require reporting donations and expenditures to the Federal government. The 1st Amendment does not say candidates give up the right to associate with or coordinate with like minded citizens or groups.

A free press is the right to use a printing press without a license from government.

Other than who pays for it, there is no difference between an editorial, slanted news story and a political ad? The poor can make their voices heard by assembling and combining their donations to buy space in newspapers and time on broadcast networks.

A Little Knowledge Is a Dangerous

A Little Knowledge Is a Dangerous



Allow me to begin by explaining a few things about myself.  I am most politically incorrect.  I hold a few things as tenets of my American citizenship.

One:    This is and was intended to be a Christian nation. 

Two:    Muslims and the muslim religion are something to be feared and distrusted.

Three:  This country was founded on the principles of freedom and individual  responsibility.

Four:    An ignorant electorate is a very dangerous thing.

Now let’s take a look at those tenets in order

This country was founded and by Christians.  Yes they wrote into that marvelous document we know as our Constitution.  Yes they wrote into the first ten amendments, better known as the Bill of Rights, and into the very first of them these words: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; …” but there is no way they intended that to be interpreted as the outlawing of governmentally sponsored and approved religious symbolism or practices on or near governmentally supported institutions. Thomas Jefferson ,our third president and author of the Declaration of Independence and founding father certainly knew of that amendment when he began holding church services in the White House after he was elected.  A tradition that lasted for fifty years..  Nor were they ignorant of them when they inscribed out money with “In GOD We Trust” and placing various references to God on many of our government buildings in Washington DC.  I am of the firm opinion that the Supreme Court was way out of bounds in declaring school prayer unconstitutional.

The Muslim religion has as one of their tenets that infidels that cannot be converted must be killed.  I cannot be converted.  I have reason to distrust and fear any and all Muslims.  AND I do.  This says nothing of the fact that the largest of the muslim sects- The Shiites - has formally declared a “jihad” against America which is tantamount to a declaration of war.

The first Amendment to the Constitution states in full “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”  I take that to mean I am allowed to write this blog and say what I choose or to give a speech on any topic and on any street corner of these United States without government interference.  Were you aware that a man and his wife were detained, in handcuffs, inside a national park, Liberty Park ironically, for the act of handing out pamphlets regarding the Constitution of this country?  It is true.  Look it up.

And the last point regarding an uninformed electorate.  One minor example I’ll give you is the recent “Overpass” rallies held by many Tea Party organizations around this nation.  The county I live in doesn’t have an overpass so the local Tea Party held theirs by the side of one of the major highways in the county.  That organization received this post on it’s Face Book page.  "Your display on Route 19 today is an embarrassment to the state. I hope those unfortunate enough to have seen it don't think the entire community shares your hatred for the President of the United States."  She is apparently unaware that one poll shows that fifty seven pct. of AMERICAN voters disapprove of that president and a growing faction (Hovering near the 50% level) believe he has committed crimes deserving of impeachment.  She is unaware that a majority of her fellow citizens in West (By God) Virginia feel that way.  Then there are the people who get their information about the state of this country only from the mainstream media.  Even true idiots don’t limit themselves to one source of information.  Gad woman, WAKE UP.

This one fact leads us to a very dangerous situation for Americans.  Obamacare is so feared by the informed public that even agencies of the federal government are protesting being covered by it.  Just as an aside I have a good friend in the corporate world whose insurance premium has already doubled and they are looking at more increases every few months.  All because of Obamacare.  My personal physician has opted out of the Medicare system because of it and now sees only privately insured or cash customers.  I am one of those people covered by Medicare so I don’t get to see a Dr. very often these days.  Just can’t afford it. I could go on about the liberal overreach and destruction of freedoms as well as the encroachment on our Constitution, but I will save that for another day.


That ends the rant for today.  If you want to comment or take exception to these words, my email address is here for your enjoyment.

Unfortunately,  the Rev William Barber is, himself, a ‘racist troublemaker’ who seems to erroneously intent on opening up the election process so as he and his ‘left-wing’ followers are able to violate the laws at will by voting ‘often and many times repeatedly’ to elect whomever they choose; leaving free, open, and honest elections into ‘anarchy’.


Rev William Barber speaks for a small group of those who continue and demand total political control by using a ‘one-sided voice’ of ‘racism’ as a problem, at all costs.


Inasmuch as Rev William Barber seems to be interested only in his version of ‘racial equality’ of ‘civil rights’, should it be ‘equitable’ for NAACP President Barber to ‘demand more racial equality’ in the college as well as professional sports of basketball and football.


On this issue, NAACP President Barber apparently wants anyone and everyone to walk into any and all political ‘polls’ at any and all times and he wishes the ‘polls’ to remain open almost endlessly, and vote as often and freely as he chooses; no checks for preventing ‘Voter fraud’.


Is President Barber’s position related only to enhance African Americans?  If and when will President Barber, many others in the NAACP, and all others elsewhere, ever get over ‘racism’?  Why do ‘bigoted’ individuals continue to practice ‘racism equality’ rather than ‘true equality’?


It appears NAACP President Barber continues to lead and practice his support of ‘Socialism’; all governments to provide all wants and needs to all the people, and all the time at taxpayers’ expense.


President Barber fails to understand the ‘facts’ under a Republic system of government that as the ‘Iron Lady’, Margaret Thatcher once said, ‘The problem with Socialism you eventually run out of other people’s money.’


North Carolinians make up a state where there is very, very little of racism; a majority of my State of North Carolina’s racism being displayed by NAACP’s President, the Rev. William Barber, himself.


Rev. William Barber, ‘bury’ your own ‘racism’.  Get over it.  You are an embarrassment to civilization.  Upwards of near 80% of (y)our North Carolinians support Voter ID.
