Kay Barnes on the Fairness Doctrine
Kay Barnes, the Democrat running against Scott Graves in Missouri’s 6th Congressional District, got a debate question about the Fairness Doctrine. I guarantee you she’d be in line to vote for the Fairness Doctrine even though she sure as heck has no idea what it is. Because, you know, it’s fair. Listen to her: H/t to Insider Online.
Obama Campaign Cuts Off TV Station After Tough Biden Interview
OBAMA CAMPAIGN CUTS OFF TV STATION AFTER TOUGH BIDEN INTERVIEW Here’s the video ….. BIDEN GRILLED BY NEWS ANCHOR: IS OBAMA MARXIST? Ask a really tough question and freedom of the press no longer matters. I have a dire feeling that if our friends on the left get complete control, not only will they enact the fairness doctrine literally within a day or two of | Read More »
Why there will be no “Fairness Doctrine”—Under Obama or Ever
Many conservatives, including (and perhaps especially) those on the radio are worried about the return of “The Fairness Doctrine” in the future, but I consider this an unrealistic fear. Here’s why. In our current political climate, the Fairness Doctrine is an archaic, absurd, and ultimately unworkable legal concept whose death would be assured as soon as anybody actually tried to codify and put it into | Read More »
I can understand why the Left wanted the Fairness Doctrine reinstated but I just can’t figured out why 40% of McCain supporters would want the Fairness Doctrine too. Could it be that in their mind the Fairness Doctrine will require MSNBC, NBC, ABC, CBS, NY Times, Wash Post, LA Times and the rest of the MSM to provide a platform for the counter arguement? If | Read More »
Hello Obama, Goodbye 1st, 2nd Amendments
It is no secret that Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have been sitting on the edge of their seats waiting in anticipation for a president who will sign into law any and all legislation that comes out of the legislative branch. We are about to enter a period of an out of control, tax happy, deficit spending congress, with no checks and balances set to | Read More »
What an Obama Administration Would Be Like
If Obama wins the election (and I estimate about a 60% chance that he will), he’ll take office with larger Democratic congressional majorities than Bill Clinton had during his first two years in office. After the 1992 election, the Democrats had a 260-175 margin in the House and 57-43 in the Senate. If current estimates are correct, the Democrats will have about a 270-165 margin | Read More »
Dem Senator calls to reinstate the Fairness Doctrine
H/T to Dan Riehl for this:If the Democrats get to 60 seats in the Senate, this is one of the many things that they will do to rig the system in their favor. Last week, I wrote up a list of other things that they will try.
Barack Obama: One Man, One Vote, One Time
Barack Obama is the most left-wing major-party presidential candidate in modern history. The evidence of this is all over his record and his campaign. Yet for a variety of reasons, ranging from terminal frustration with the Bush Administration to swooning over Obama’s pop culture cache to buying Obama’s and the media’s spin that he’s really a mainstream figure to the right, not the left, of | Read More »
The Fairness Doctrine: a blessing in disguise?
Tonight, Drudge links to a story on the NY Post web site about the prospects that the Reid/Pelosi/Macho Bambi triumvirate will re-institute the so-called “Fairness Doctrine.” I personally believe that will be one of the first acts of the Democrat Regime. But is this all bad? The Post article mentions “a new Fairness Doctrine would drive political talk radio off the dial.” That could happen. | Read More »
The Accusation Game
by Lance Thompson It has long been a Democrat tactic to accuse Republicans of whatever unprincipled, illicit or deplorable act that they themselves are about to perpetrate. This tactic has been repeatedly employed with great success, and is about to pay off with the grand prize of the Presidency. The Democrats paint themselves as champions of free speech. The broadcast news networks, MSNBC, CNN and | Read More »
No, Senator McCain. We DO Need to Fear Barack Obama!
Don’t take this as me giving up on John McCain. I’ve already committed to helping him and Sarah Palin get to the White House, and no matter what the polls are saying, I have no intention of giving up. I saw the highlights of a McCain rally where he said we don’t need to fear Barack Obama, and how he’s basically a decent man with | Read More »

Jefferson, Madison, and the Founders’ Approach: Fight the Fairness Doctrine!
These responses to the Sedition Acts of 1798, which limited anti-government speech in the wake of the Quasi-War with France, were authored by Thomas Jefferson and James Madison and passed by their respective State Assemblies: One of the Kentucky Resolutions of 1798, emphasis mine: 3) Resolved, That it is true as a general principle, and is also expressly declared by one of the amendments to | Read More »
“The Tools of Free Men”
There is an excellent article by A.W.R Hawkins on Human Events today. He talks about why the Democrats are against oil, guns and free speech. It’s not a new thesis to most of us, but I liked his rugged, free American approach to the subject. Hawkins also stresses the importance of teaching the costs, meanings and benefits of freedom to our children, so that they | Read More »
The (un)Fairness Doctrine
Far be it from me to ask all to endorse anyone or sign anything, however, being that queen bee Nancy Pelosi cannot wait for President Obama to commence the “socialization” of our government, this petition has got to move and move soon:click here if you concur *Look at the effect of (Newt Gingrich’s AmericaSolutions.org) the DRILL HERE, DRILL NOW petition… over 1.3 million as of | Read More »
