FCC Approves Foreign Takeover of U.S. Broadcasters

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on September 29th did something worse than give up control of the Internet. They voted unanimously to put America’s entire broadcast industry on the fast track to a foreign takeover by Chinese, Russian or Muslim Brotherhood front corporations.

This new FCC rule gives foreign interests the long sought-after tools they need to shape U.S. public opinion and to censor the opposition.

Once a foreign corporation scoops up a media business, such as a chain of radio stations, it can eliminate national and local programming and substitute its own government’s propaganda. That means that conservative talkers could find themselves off the air.

Citing the need for “change” from the old “vintage” laws, Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel declared that “laws that govern broadcast investment can get in the way.”

So, rather than respect the law and Congress, the FCC decided in a 5 to 0 vote to decree a new “rule” that effectively guts a law that protected Americans from foreign interests and their propaganda. The new rule assumes that any foreign owner of a TV or radio broadcaster will be acceptable unless someone can prove otherwise.

When it comes to baggage, Hillary needs a small army of porters to carry hers to the curb. By comparison virtually all of the other candidates have a “carry-on” (e.g., Rubio had traffic citations). I remember most of these events. The material below came in an “email blast.” The best attribution I could find was Hillary Hopes You’ve Forgotten – Have You? by Diane Rigali.

Hillary Clinton has been telling America that she is the most qualified candidate for president based on her “record,” which she says includes her eight years in the White House as First Lady – or “co-president” – and her seven years in the Senate. Here is a reminder of what that record includes:

HILLARY, As First Lady, assumed authority over Health Care Reform, a process that cost the taxpayers over $13 million. She told both Bill Bradley and Pat Moynahan, key votes were needed to pass her legislation, that she would “demonize “anyone who opposed it. But it was opposed; she couldn’t even get it to a vote in a Congress controlled by her own party. (And in the next election, her party lost control of both the House and Senate.)

HILLARY assumed authority over selecting a female Attorney General. Her first two recommendations (Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood) were forced to withdraw their names from consideration, and then she chose Janet Reno. Janet Reno has since been described by Bill himself as “my worst mistake.”

HILLARY recommended Lani Guanier for head of the Civil Rights Commission. When Guanier’s radical views became known, her name had to be withdrawn.

I’ll get right to it; if you don’t get the Victory Fund back up and working for Donald Trump you will destroy Trump, destroy America and destroy the Republican Party because we will destroy you.

Trump supporters have a deep wide and continuous well of enthusiasm for saving America and we will not stand by and reward you for your treachery. You represent the politics as usual that people hate. Do you hear that? You are everything we hate about politics.

Although it is a sure thing that your media friends will now start churning out polls showing that the America public “just loves” Congressional Republicans; they will be false and you know it. Believe them at your own peril.

The only enthusiasm in this election is among Trump supporters. That enthusiasm currently gives him an 11 point edge in enthusiasm among his supporters versus Hillary Clinton’s supporters. On Friday Fox News reported the spread to be 70/57 so it is growing not fading.

This 11 point enthusiasm is spread evenly across all groups. Nevertheless, White men are especially enthused about Trump (look these things up, I won’t do your work for you) and these supporters will not vote for your candidates when they recognize your treachery.

Why aren’t we talking about this?

9/30/2016

Public debt: $14,173,423,516,895.82

Intergovernmental: $5,400,021,197,040.97

Total: $19,573,444,713,936.79

9/30/2015

Public debt: $13,123,847,198,347.81

Intergovernmental: $5,026,770,468,136.52

Total: $18,150,617,666,484.33

Purchasing Destruction

Public debt: $1,049,576,318,548.01

Intergovernmental: $373,250,728,904.45

Total: $1,422,827,047,452.46

****

Remember, the actual “public” deficit is the difference in borrowing between the end of the fiscal year and the beginning in debt held by the public. The total increase in debt, including intergovernmental (mostly Social Security and Medicare) is the actual deficit and is exactly equal, on an arithmetic basis, to the destruction in your personal purchasing power that the government causes (or gain if the government runs a surplus.)

The actual deficit — that is, the destruction in purchasing power the federal government caused last year, is the percentage of 1.423 trillion .vs. the total GDP of 18.450 trillion or approximately 7.7%.

That’s right — the government intentionally destroyed almost 8% of your paycheck and your savings last year, running a $1.423 trillion dollar budget deficit, which is roughly equal to the worst of the “great recession” when tax revenues went through the floor.

Today there is no such “tax shortfall” excuse.

The breakdown of exactly where the ugly is coming from will be published next week. I already know what is in there because I’ve been following the monthly treasury statements all fiscal year, but wish to report final “as tallied” facts — and thus will have another post at that time.

Let me be clear: On the arithmetic if we do not stop this now within the next 4-5 years — that is, within the next Presidential term — our government will collapse, our economy will collapse, our health care system will collapse and both the stock and housing markets will collapse. This is not politics, it’s arithmetic. And the worst part of it is that I am utterly certain that the “references” count, along with the “views” count on this article will both be a fraction of the politically-oriented articles I’ve recently posted. That the real end of our way of life in America, a threat that is obvious, mathematically certain, not very far in the future and yet avoidable if we act now fails to garner any sort of serious attention is the real outrage folks.

Another Day, Another Secret Obama Side Deal with Iran

Terrorists_gif

Family Security Matters

by FRED FLEITZ

According to a September 30 Wall Street Journal article, the Obama administration signed a secret agreement with Iran to lift U.N. sanctions from two Iranian banks – Bank Sepah and Bank Sepah International – that helped finance Iran’s ballistic-missile program. U.S. and Iranian officials signed this deal on January 17, 2016, the same day Iran released four U.S. prisoners.

U.S officials in January said the prisoners were swapped for the release of seven Iranian prisoners by the U.S. and the removal of 21 persons – mostly Iranian nationals – from an INTERPOL wanted list for violating U.S. laws barring transfers of WMD technology and weapons to Iran.

The American people and Congress did not learn until August that the U.S. prisoners were not allowed to leave Iran until a planeload of $400 million in cash sent by the United States had landed in Iran. This payment – and two more over the next month – has been strongly condemned by Republican congressmen as U.S. ransom payments to a state sponsor of terror.

Commenting on the $400 million cash payment to Iran, the prisoner swap and the lifting of sanctions from the Iranian banks, a senior U.S. official told the Journal, “The timing of all this isn’t coincidental. Everything was linked to some degree.”

The Journal also quoted unnamed Obama officials who justified lifting sanctions against the two Iranian banks to “harmonize the U.N. sanctions list with the U.S.’s” and because “Washington believed Iran had earned more sanctions relief because Tehran had been implementing the terms of the nuclear agreement.” The Obama administration lifted U.S. sanctions against Bank Sepah and Bank Sepah International in July 2015. The U.N. Security Council voted to lift these sanctions on January 17, 2016.

This suggests the removal of sanctions against the Iranian banks was part of a broad ransom agreement to free U.S. prisoners held by Iran.
