So, Retransmission Consent. You know what happens when you rig the system to limit competition, as the Congress and the FCC did in the early days of Cable? Broadcasters raking in the bucks. Never would I say that copyright should be attacked, but that price to license these broadcasts should be dictated by the open market. Let broadcasters compete.
Many times I have written about Obama and Hilary Clinton and their unadulterated worship of Saul Alinsky and his “Rules for Radicals.” There is one thing that wasn’t mentioned in my articles and that is securing the trust of the people. Obama and Hillary threw “trust” out the window thinking it unimportant. Obama’s first few years were smooth sailing for the youth, African Americans, Hispanics | Read More »
A new CNN/ORC poll released Monday, found that a majority of Americans — 56 percent, now think Obama’s policies are likely to fail in coming years. According to the new CNN poll, only 37 percent think Obama’s policies will succeed will succeed. The finding is a reversal from a year ago when CNN polling found 54 percent that President Obama’s policies would succeed, while 39 percent | Read More »
More FCC: Data use continues to go up, and it probably makes sense to remove barriers to investment on expanding our wireless capacity in this country. We still need spectrum, but the build out matters after that spectrum is acquired, as well.
All this is perfectly good reason to want to gut the FCC by reforming the Communications Act, but again, I just don’t trust the current legislative process to succeed at this in one big bill. When was the last time we had one big bill that worked well? Not in many years. I’d love to be proven wrong, but I’m not optimistic.
“We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” — Barack Obama, October 30, 2008 In his Super Bowl Interview with Bill O’Reilly yesterday, President Obama finally backed away from his infamously radically extreme comment about “fundamentally transforming the United States of America. In an exchange at the end of the interview Obama denied that he thinks “we” have to fundamentally | Read More »
No doubt those who took time to listen to the SOTU address certainly realized that it was a canned speech that Barack used in 2008 and 2009. A few bells and whistles added to get viewer’s attention, but the sad part is the man giving that address (State of the Union) in 2014 appears to have some serious health issues. Compare Barack Obama physical stature | Read More »
It’s sad, but necessary to call a “Spade a Spade.” The Democrats are not defenders of our Constitution – they are two- faced and the party of treason. Democrats have turned on America and Americans. They refuse to address and take ownership of the five biggest scandals in our history starting with the Fast & Furious gunrunner operation, the Benghazi murders, the IRS, the NSA | Read More »
Back when Obamacare was all shiny and new, I was in the habit of calling it ‘health care rationing.’ I did this because I knew that you can’t have ‘less people uninsured’ AND ‘lower prices’ AND ‘improved services’ – and I assumed that the government would choose the first two and let the third go away on the wind. I got out of the habit | Read More »
First you control the healthcare, then increase poverty & debt via climate and energy change and Obamacare. Sounds like a bad fictional movie doesn’t it? Podesta had Barack Obama pave the way for his “climate change” initiative internationally. In June of 2013 Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping came to an agreement on phasing down HFC’s, a temporary substance with a very short life used | Read More »
I think I now have the prevailing and ultimate theory regarding the media’s light touch toward Barack Obama. Yes, to be sure, they are liberals and Democrats. I’ve long documented how often “objective” reporters for the Washington Press Corp came over from liberal organizations and now feign objectivity. But with the revelation that Mark Murray is married to the FAA Chief of Staff, we need | Read More »
I SAID… Senator Udall? Will President Obama be campaigning with you in Colorado? (Transcript below via RCP link) DANA BASH, CNN: Is he a liability for you, the president back home? SEN. MARK UDALL (D-CO): When the president comes to Colorado and talks about our all-the-above energy approach — we’ve got lots of natural gas and solar power — that resonates with Coloradoans. When | Read More »
The big story for conservatives is not the President’s State of the Union Address. It is the broken state of the Republican Party – the party that is supposed to serve as a bulwark against the poisonous ideas propagated in that speech. It certainly is egregious that we have a president who is brazenly implementing wage controls without congressional approval. It is reprehensible that he | Read More »
Sitting in Middle Georgia tonight, the snow poured down muting all the sounds outside. I did not watch the President’s State of the Union. I read the transcript. I had read — not skimmed it — before the President had even gotten to “My fellow Americans.”I smelled an awful stench as I read through the speech. At first I thought the speech must be in | Read More »
Liberal News media presents their daily garbage of the day hoping to snag a few more unsuspecting victims with regurgitated canned information that only the desperate entitlement crowd might find interesting. They’ll promote infanticide by hiding behind the women’s rights movement, which is pretty much like saying women have the right to shack up and have one night stands and if pregnancy results it’s their | Read More »
A new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll finds that the state of the union is divided, troubled and deteriorating. Those were the top answers given when respondents were asked which one or two words best describe the current state of the nation: Divided – 37 percent Troubled – 23 percent Deteriorating – 21 percent According to Mark Murray, Senior Political Editor for NBC News, the new poll also | Read More »
