Obama’s Newest Assault on Free Speech: The So-Called ‘Free Flow of Information Act’

Obama’s newest attack on free political speech protects neither journalists nor does it assure any “free flow of information.”

In addition to the IRS targeting conservative groups, individuals and their families–and now proposing rules to silence them during elections–and the new FCC plan to police the press by placing so-called “researchers” in newsrooms across the country, the Obama administration is pushing Congress to pass legislation that threatens the First Amendment rights of citizen journalists, grassroots activists, and bloggers by creating a federal government media licensing regime.

The “Free Flow of Information Act of 2013” (S. 987) would allow the federal government to determine who is and who is not a “journalist” and to grant special privileges to only the institutional and paid media.

By giving special legal protections to the journalistic-elite who meet the federal government’s definition of “legitimate” media, the bill would create the very type of government media licensing system that the Founding Fathers intended to prohibit with the First Amendment.

Breaking the Law: Pay Higher for Government Contractors Than Other Workers

Employees, whether unionized or not, who work for companies that have government contracts make far more per hour than employees who do similar jobs in the same area, a new study finds. This fact shows that government is essentially breaking its compensation own law.

The Service Contract Act of 1965 maintains that employees working for companies with government contracts must make the prevailing wage for their job in the area in which they work.

That means that if a carpet-layer in Peoria, Illinois makes $10.27 per hour, then any company that lays carpet for the government must pay their carpet-layers $10.27 per hour. Seems fair enough, right?

But the study shows that this isn’t happening. These government contractors aren’t making the prevailing wage. In fact, they are making far more than the prevailing wage! And all at the expense to the taxpayers, naturally.

When Fox Business Network (FBN) snagged top CNBC reporter Maria Bartiromo for its own late last year, there was talk about giving her a Sunday morning business news show along with her other FBN duties. Now Fox News is announcing the debut of that new show.

The show is titled Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo and will air beginning on the last Sunday of March at 9AM Central Standard Time on your cable’s Fox News station.

“Anchored by leading business journalist Maria Bartiromo,” the announcement says, “the show will focus on the intersection of commerce and news events, offering viewers in-depth analysis on recent developments in the economy. Each week, Bartiromo will interview business leaders and industry newsmakers on topics such as job creation and investment opportunities, providing viewers with an inside look at how to prepare financially for the future.”

Green Stormtroopers to Invade Private Homes to Ensure Green Compliance

Greenism is not only a religious principle it is also a fascist, authoritarian ideal and greenies in Germany are finally revealing the black soul of greenism by proposing a law that would give the state the power to forcibly enter a person’s home to ensure they are in compliance with green rules.

The city of Bremen, in northern Germany near the North Sea just west of Hamburg, is so keyed up to push its left-wing envrio-Nazi regulations that it has outlawed residents from having electric heaters. But the jackbooted enviros aren’t going to stop at a mere banning of the heaters. To make sure the lowly people have complied with the ban, greenists in Bremen want to give police the power to enter a home without a warrant to make sure that home owners or apartment dwellers have abided by the rule and gotten rid of their evil, evil electric space heaters.

As the Germany website Liberal Magazine reports, “The proposed law by Environment Senator Joachim Lohse foresees a system of monitoring that allows for detection of violations and punishment. According to the Weser-Kurier daily, officials would ‘in carrying out the duties of their office, tread upon private property and enter private buildings.’ Here Lohse is creating nothing less than an environment police.”

Now, this whole idea runs contrary to Article 13 of the German Constitution which holds that the people have an “inviolability” of their homes and that the state cannot just come stormtrooping through private property whenever they get a hankering to get its thug on.

Chgo Teachers Union Chief Wants Math Corrupted With ‘Social Justice’ Propaganda

Did you think that math was a subject that is by its very nature free of political ideology? Did you think that math was just, well, math? Maybe it won’t surprise you that Chicago teachers union chief, Karen Lewis, disagrees with you and thinks that math isn’t just math but should also be a platform to push left-wing “social justice” propaganda on students.

The rotund Lewis made her pronouncements at an education conference called the Network for Public Education conference held on March 1, 2014 in Austin, Texas.

During her remarks Lewis praised the efforts of extremist left-winger Bob Peterson who is unfortunately in charge of the Milwaukee, Wisconsin teachers union. Peterson wrote a book that is used in the classroom to push left-wing ideology on kids and Lewis thinks everyone should emulate that.

“You want to talk about organizing? You want to talk about social justice?” Lewis bellowed.

Crooked Illinois Dems Sneak Ban of Farm Sold Milk into Restroom Access Bill

This is the kind of crap that makes all politics seem crooked, conniving, scheming, and corrupt. With only days to go until the end of the legislative session a Democrat has sneaked in an amendment that would put a ban on farm-sold raw milk products into a bill meant to merely change the name of the state’s restroom access act.

That’s right, a ban on raw milk sales is now in a bill to provide fair access to restrooms. What do the two have to do with one another? Not a dang thing. But that is how corrupt politics works. If someone wants something stuck in an unrelated bill as a pay off, why all you have to do is set the right levers in motion.

The amendment to HB4036 would prevent the sale of non pasteurized milk products. The amendment was introduced by Chicago Representative Daniel J. Burke.

And what is this restroom bill? The only thing House Bill 4036 was introduced to do was to make a minor change to the name of the restroom act. That is all.

Iowa Dem Bruce Braley Slams Iowa Farmers As Unfit for Office

-By Warner Todd Huston

Iowa Congressman Bruce Braley is now running for the Senate in the Hawkeye State and he has a message for Iowans: Iowa farmers aren’t good enough for elected office. Iowa needs rich, lawyers like himself in office. At least, this is what he told a roomful of trial lawyers in Texas.

Appearing in a room full of rich trial lawyers who make a living off the backs of the people, Braley noted that he is *one of them* and isn’t like any old lowly Iowa farmer.

It should be noted that one of Iowa’s biggest economic sectors is its farming community.

Naturally, Braley was trying to get these trial lawyers to give him big campaign donations from their deep pockets.

“To put this in stark contrast,” Braley told the gathering of skinners “if you help me win this race, you may have someone with your background, your experience, your voice. Someone who’s been literally fighting tort reform for 30 years, in a visible and public way, on the Senate Judiciary Committee.”

“Or, you might have a farmer from Iowa, who never went to law school, never practiced law, serving as the next chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee,” he continued.

“Because if Democrats lose the majority, Chuck Grassley will be chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee,” he proudly concluded.

So, regular, Iowans who are not part of the “47%” aren’t good enough for office in Iowa?

‘NY Daily News’ Article Calls Gun Owner ‘Gun Nut,’ Misidentifies Guns

-By Warner Todd Huston

To show the utter, abject bias against the Constitution and our Second Amendment rights in the “news,” one need only turn to the New York Daily News to see a prime example. In a recent “news” story on a gun give-away, the paper called the winner a “gun nut,” and misidentified the rifle given away as an “assault weapon.”

A church in upstate New York made news by hosting a give-away program for an AR-15-styled rifle made by Smith & Wesson. The entrants for the raffle had to sit through the pastor’s sermon. The winner also had to pass a background check at a local gun store and wait the requisite period to take possession of the rifle.

In “reporting” the story, though, the paper filled its piece with misleading terminology and name calling to prove its disdain for the Church’s give-away as well as its contempt for the Constitution and the Second Amendment not to mention the winner of the rifle.

Senator Mark Kirk (RINO, ILL) has always been a 50 percenter with the Republican Party, meaning that he only supports the party he is supposed to belong to around 50 percent of the time. But now, seemingly by his own admission, he’s become a full Democrat with his decision to fight against the GOP nominee for Senate and support the re-election of Democrat Senator Dick Durbin, the single most left-wing promulgator of lies in the U.S. Senate.

Today, Mark Kirk has just taken the penultimate step to becoming a Democrat with this decision to support Democrat Durbin over his own party’s nominee for U.S. Senate, Jim Oberweis.

Democrat Kirk, the cripple from Lake County, just said that he would rather “protect” his “relationship” with the most left-wing liar in the Senate than help a fellow Republican get elected.

“I’m going to be protecting my relationship with Dick and not launching into a partisan jihad that hurts our partnership to both pull together for Illinois,” Kirk said Monday during an event for Texas Senator John Cornyn.

Illinois School: Gun Rights Only What Government Allows Them to Be

The U.S. Constitution says that our Second Amendment rights shall not be infringed. That’s pretty straightforward. But a middle school in Illinois has decided that shall not really means that you have no rights unless government says you are allowed to have them.

According to a workbook handout from Grant Middle School in Springfield, Illinois–that happens to be the capital city of the most corrupt state in America–Americans only have Second Amendment rights if they go and “register” with government and if government has decided they are worthy of being allowed those rights.

‘Queer Theory’ Professor Charged For Assaulting a Teenaged Pro-Life Demonstrator

Yesterday I wrote about how Democrats in Cincinnati threw a big welcome home party for a criminal convicted of vote fraud. Even MSNBC’s Al Sharpton, a man guilty of inciting to murder, came on down to Cincy to celebrate this criminal. Well, now, with the tale of a “queer theory” professor from the U of California who has been charged of physically assaulting a teenaged girl who was protesting abortion, I have yet another story that shows that to be a Democrat/liberal/communist is to be a supporter and promulgator of crime.

To recap, the Cincy story was that of vote fraud criminal Melowese Richardson who was convicted of voting six times in the 2012 elections. Race agitators convinced the state to release this criminal after only a few months in jail because RAAAAAAAACISM. Upon release, local Democrats and national headliners threw a big party for her celebrating her criminality and urging everyone to be juuuuuust like her.

I was noting that even though Democrats are criminals as a matter of course, at least they had the decency in days past to be ashamed of being convicted of some crime or another and acted duly chastised. These days they have no shame whatsoever and actually celebrate their criminal behavior as is obvious by the gala celebration given the Cincy criminal.

Well, this week we se yet another example of this criminality celebrated as all things good and right.

Al Sharpton gives criminal Melowese Richardson a big hug at her “welcome home” gala thrown by Ohio democrats.

Once again we see an example that to be a Democrat is to celebrate criminality–not merely indulge in criminality, but making it something to be proud of. This time it is evinced in the giant “welcome home” party thrown for a racist who was convicted of voter fraud in Ohio.

You may recall that a Cincinnati, Ohio resident named Melowese Richardson voted six times for Barack Obama in 2012 because he “had a right” to be President. This black racist purposefully voted twice for herself, sent an absentee ballot in for her granddaughter (who went and legally voted on her own on Election Day) and sent three absentee ballots in for her sister who is infirm and in a coma.

This Democrat criminal was such an ignoramus that she fully admitted to her illegal actions right on TV in February of 2013 saying, “I’ll fight it for Mr. Obama and Mr. Obama’s right to sit as president of the United States.”

Obama Press Secretary’s Fake ‘Briefings’

It’s supposedly a long tradition. Reporters from the nation’s top news agencies gather together before the President’s Press Secretary and pepper him with questions on the issues of the day to get off the cuff answers so that we, the people, can take a measure of what the White House is doing. Only with Obama it’s all fake. Neither the questions nor the answers are “real.”

As it happens, a reporter from Arizona has revealed that all the questions and all the answers to those questions are hammered out between the “reporters” and Obama’s Press Sec. Jay Carney before any of them ever enter the White House briefing room.

It’s all a sham, a show, a false front as these so-called “reporters” bow to demands that their questions be submitted before the press “conference” and approved ahead of time.

According to the Arizona reporter, Jay Carney himself admitted the truth in an accidentally candid moment.

Michigan Teachers Union Wants NO Christian Teachers

The Michigan teachers union apparently doesn’t want any Christian teachers as “non-Christian” teachers are given special consideration for new positions.

The union contract in Ferndale Public Schools in Oakland County, Michigan, specifically stipulates that Christian candidates will be given less consideration than minorities and teachers of other religious convictions.

As Michigan’s Mackinac Center reports, the state’s Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act prohibits discrimination in employment and public services on the basis of religion but the teachers union is essentially breaking that law while pretending to follow it.

The Michigan Education Association is essentially breaking that law with its rules on which teachers will be given consideration for open jobs.

The Illinois Primary is Over, Now the Next Fight Begins

-By Warner Todd Huston

In the first week of March I was in Washington DC at a party at the Breitbart embassy situated among the brownstone buildings just behind the U.S. Supreme Court building and I was talking to the National Review’s John Fund about the Illinois primaries. He asked me if Rauner was going to run away with it and I said that Dillard might surprise people and come much closer than anyone expected. Fund scoffed a bit. Turns out I was right.

State Senator Kirk Dillard did, indeed, get a surge in the last weeks of the election over taking the third and fourth place candidates by a long shot and coming within striking distance of Bruce Rauner. Dillard ended up at 38 percent to Rauner’s 40 percent of the vote.

In interviews after last night’s primary Dillard said that the reason he missed it by that much was “money, money, money.” It’s hard to dispute Senator Dillard on this as Rauner outspent all the other candidates due to the millions of his personal fortune he spent on this race.

One could fairly say that Rauner did buy this primary election. But the worrisome thing for Rauner has to be the fact that even with his millions spent he only beat Dillard by a few tiny percentage points. This is a warning note for the general election when he’ll face incumbent Democrat Governor Pat Quinn.

In any case, Rauner will have to define Pat Quinn’s negatives before Quinn defines Rauner’s.

As the left runs around like Chicken Littles claiming that the evil Koch brothers are “buying the country,” they ignore the fact that unions have poured many times more money into the system to buy themselves influence than the Kochs ever have or ever will. The left ignores this fact because unions spend all their money on extremely liberal causes and politicians and they don’t care if they have to break the law to do it.

Firstly let’s get the facts out in the open. A new report by Mercatus finds that the top 25 political donors for the last 25 years is littered with unions donating to left-wing causes. In fact, the number two and number four biggest donors are public employee unions.

As an aside, it is also instructive to note that number one political donor is the hardcore left-wing group ActBlue and not by just a little. ActBlue has donated nearly 100 million dollars to leftists and they have only been around since 2004. By comparison the next closest big donor is the government union the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) which comes in at about the 60 million mark.

Anyway, Mercatus found that of the top 25 donors, 14 of them are left-wing unions. The chart also proves that nearly 60 percent of all donations were made by unions and that’s about $552 million donated since 1989–all gone to the left.

Ill. Rep. Gutiérrez Likely On Verge of Ethics Charges Filed Against Him

New reports suggest that Chicago Congressman Luis Gutiérrez (D, ILL) is likely expecting to be charged with ethics violations in Washington.

USA Today reports that Gutiérrez has already spent some $30,000 in legal fees in preparation of defending himself from charges of ethics violations and no violations have yet been filed. It seems clear that the Congressman is sure they are on the verge of being filed.

Even with no investigation announced, in January the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) noted that at least one question over the Congressman’s actions was being held for consideration after the Illinois primaries (Election Day is March 18).

Naturally, Gutiérrez is refusing to make any statements on this matter–and that is probably a good idea since the whole matter is completely up in the air at this time.

The Most ‘Transparent’ President in History Has More Secrecy Than Ever

Once again we see an example of the essential falsehood upon which the Obama administration was built. When Obama ran for the White House and then won he did so claiming that his would be an open presidency unlike that evil, evil George Bush’s. But since he won it has become clear that Obama is actually more secretive than Bush was. Yet, liberals give him a pass on this major lie upon which he built his case for election.

During all six years of his presidency we’ve seen the truth come out. But this month we see yet another example. A new study finds that at an increasing rate every year Obama has been censoring government documents requested under the Freedom of Information Act or outright refusing to supply them quite despite his claims that he’d expedite the process and fulfill more requests.

The recent study shows that, “the government’s efforts to be more open about its activities last year were their worst since President Barack Obama took office.”

Despite Obama’s hoary claims that he was going to have the most open and ethical presidency ever, that he’d institute the strictest rules any president ever imposed on himself, reality has come knocking and revealed that the exact opposite has come to pass.

Among other things, the study found that, “five years after Obama directed agencies to less frequently invoke a ‘deliberative process’ exception to withhold materials describing decision-making behind the scenes, the government did it anyway, a record 81,752 times.”

It has all been one gigantic lie. And the liberals? They are paying no attention at all.

But this is only the latest example.

Illinois Wins Again: Worst Unemployment Record in USA

Illinois continues to rack up plaudits as one of the worst states in the entire country for every measure that makes a successful state. Bad bond ratings, among the highest for people moving away from her, worst pension messes, crummy education, etc. And now, Illinois has won the booby prize as the single worst state in the union for its unemployment track record. Yaaaa, Illinois.

At 9 percent unemployment, Illinois now has the worst unemployment rate of every state around it in the Midwest. But even worse for the Land of Sinkin’–er, I mean Land of Lincoln–the state has the worst downward trends in employment for the whole country. Illinois’ unemployment rate has gone up more times than its gone down and that is the worst record in the whole country over the last five years.

As the Illinois Policy Institute recently noted, “Illinois’ recovery from the Great Recession has been hindered by self-inflicted wounds. After the 2011 tax hikes, the Illinois jobless rate jumped from 9.4 percent to 10.2 percent. The US average declined in the same period.”
Meanwhile, in the surrounding Midwestern state, every state but Illinois has had a downward trend for unemployment by about an average of some 2 percent. And yet, Democrat controlled Illinois has seen unemployment go up and up.

Looks like long-time Chicago investigative reporter Carol Marin really laid her hate for everyone right of center bare with her lie-filled attack on WLS radio personality and political operative Dan Proft last week.

Marin, a reporter with quite a reputation for factual columns, lambasted a mail ad that Proft’s political action group sent out that featured a “homophobic” slam on House member Ron Sandack.

Only there was a problem with Marin’s attack on Proft. The ad she was criticizing wasn’t sent by his PAC. It was sent by Illinois Family Action.

Marin slammed Proft as a gay basher, called him a homophobe, and attacked him in several ways interpreting all his mailers are anti-gay.

She proved to be one of those haters of conservatives and Republicans that reads “hate” into everything people right of center do. She proved to be shrill, blind to reality, and more interested in promulgating her own brand of hate than in the truth.

Disqus: Feminizing America One Lost Down Vote at a Time

-By Warner Todd Huston

This month the blog commenting system Disqus changed its system with neither a warning nor an explanation, eliminating the ability of page visitors to see the tallied number of down votes to any of the comments. Apparently the blog service felt that Americans were getting their feelings hurt so badly by a down vote that it had to eliminate the capability. And thus the feminization of America continues.

Previously, the Disqus commenting system featured a way for other page visitors who had opened an account with Disqus to either up vote or down vote comments by clicking on a green arrow facing upward or a red arrow facing down. As each visitor clicked on the arrows a tally of how many votes the comment received was displayed.

But now, when someone tries to click on the down vote arrow it neither displays as red for other commenters to see, nor is there any longer a tallied number. The up votes, however, still show a green number tallying upward as each up arrow is clicked.

So, now no one knows how many down votes a comment is getting.

Senator Harry Reid is indulging an absurd habit these days. He’s become a Koch head, a Koch addict, a Koch whore. He just can’t get enough of libertarian campaign donors Charles and David Koch and Reid’s lost his tiny little mind over them blaming them for everything that he thinks is wrong with the country. Naturally, Reid is a liar.

Charles and David Koch of Koch Industries have donated hundreds of millions to center right candidates and causes over the last 30 years, something, Reid says, means they are “buying” politics in the country.

Before we even talk further about the Koch brothers, we should note that left-winger George Soros has spent far, far more of his personal fortune to push American politics leftward than the Kochs have spent pushing it rightward. And where is Reid to complain that extremist, left-wing billionaire Tom Steyer is spending hundreds of millions of his money to push the myth of global warming down our throats? Where is Reid to complain of the billions that MoveOn.org has s\pent on politics? Worse, where is Reid to whine that unions are buying politics–and unions have spent trillions more over the last 50 years than either Soros OR the Kochs. Of course, the lying hypocrite Senator from Nevada doesn’t care about Soros, the unions, or your Steyers because they all spend their billions on Democrats and their Euroesque causes.

One of the dumbest democrats in Congress is Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee. She has said many, many stupid things and this week she unleashed another one saying that the U.S., Constitution is 400 years old. This occurred yesterday and I was going to skip the story, but I just can’t let it pass un-mentioned.

This dolt of a human being made the comment on the floor of the House during the debate on the lawless president that sits in the White House. The GOP has floated a law that would hold this criminal president to the law. Plainly enough, the law is titled the Enforce The Law Act and was introduced by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R, SC).

Naturally, Obama is threatening to veto a law that tells him to follow the law. Think about that for a second. Obama wants to be given carte blanche to break the law and is upset anyone would expect him to be a law-abiding chief executive.

This president plans to be a criminal and wants Congress to give him blanket dispensation to be one.

Obama Tells Us to Cancel Cell Phone and Cable to Pay for Obamacare

So, if you make less that $40,000 a year and find the high cost of Obamacare to be overwhelming, President Obama has a message for you: cancel your stupid cable TV and you dang iPhone service you ingrates. THEN you will be able to afford his mandated-by-law take over of our national healthcare system.

This is what Obama told a Latino audience at a townhall held on March 6 by several Spanish language media networks.

Obama was presented with a question about a family that makes $36,000 a year and found that the cheapest Obamacare plan they could find would cost them $315 a month. This, the family felt, was too expensive and something they could not afford.

The President’s response was chilling. Obama said, “if you looked at their cable bill, their telephone, their cell phone bill… it may turn out that, it’s just they haven’t prioritized health care.”

Democrats Fundraising With Terrorists

Once again we see that the Democrat Party is thoroughly un-American and pro-terror with a Democrat Party fundraiser in Virginia with two members of the terror group the Muslim Brotherhood.

As reported on March 10 by the Washington Free Beacon, Representative Gerry Connolly (D, VA) is happy as a clam having terror supporters and Muslim Brotherhood activists Akram Elzend and Sameh Elhennawy at a fundraiser later this month. The pair will co-host the fundraiser at the home of Mohamed Mohamed in Fairfax.

The Muslim Brotherhood has been labeled a terrorist group by Egypt’s new authorities after the many Egyptians killed by supporters of the group in recent unrest there.

Yet, here is Rep. Connolly teaming up with these terror supporters for a fundraiser?
