The 'Fairness Doctrine' will kill America.

FEBRUARY 18, 2009


For the third time in eight days, a prominent liberal has clanged the bell for the return of the Un-Fairness Doctrine.

The latest, none other than Bill Clinton, chimed his support saying, “You either have to have the Fairness Doctrine, or we ought to have more balance on the other side … for people to offer countervailing opinions.”

Since first sounding the alert many months ago about the liberal desire to re-instate the Fairness Doctrine, the Media Research Center has withstood a withering attack from the liberal media that took every opportunity to tell us we were “alarmists,” that the Fairness Doctrine would never return.

Well, guess what?

As we predicted, it’s here and the media are feverishly working to get liberal leaders in lockstep on the talking points!

Clinton, is just the latest in a fast-growing list of liberal mouth-pieces--including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Rep. Henry Waxman and Sens. Debbie Stabenow and Tom Harkin who have just recently started chanting the Fairness mantra.

++ 100,000 Petitions Needed to Protect Free Speech in America

Thomas, the last conservative stronghold is talk radio, and the liberal media are in the process of creating a perfect storm—churning the waters, and setting the climate to eradicate it.

That’s why I’m turning to you right now.

Thomas, we must be mobilized for immediate action, and I’m counting on every member of our MRC Action team to help me rally the critically needed grassroots support to defend our Free Speech Rights!

Forward this message to 30-35 friends, and let them know how the liberal media are rapidly moving this agenda forward. Let them know what awaits if conservatives don’t take action to preserve our Freedom. Urge them to join with us right now by clicking here.

Already 90,557 citizens have signed our Free Speech Alliance petition opposing a censorship doctrine—with hundreds more signing every day. This is a great start, but we are running out of time. We simply must reach out to tens of thousands more conservatives in the days ahead—motivating each to take action with us by signing our national petition. I’m also thrilled to announce that nearly 60 organizations have joined our coalition to protect our Free Speech Rights from liberal elites who want to arrest conservative ideology, and co-op our First Amendment Rights!

Without question momentum is building, but we must be ready to boldly move forward at a moment’s notice with a petition presentation to key liberal targets and the FCC. That’s why I’m turning to key members of my team like you, Thomas, in hopes that you will help me take this effort to the next level in the days ahead.

Together we can stave off the liberal media and their insidious plan to muzzle the opposition, and protect our Free Speech Rights for generations to come.

As always, thank you for standing with the MRC.

Brent Bozell

P.S: Help me send a message to the liberal media that we won’t be silent or silenced. Please forward this message to 30-35 friends today. Urge them to join with you by clicking here.

We can't afford to lose more Freedoms.

Never say Never.

'Never say Never.' My wife just called me on the phone sobbing/ crying, and asked me if I would let her come home and back into my life as a wife. I told her, 'YES' ! We will get some Christian counseling and try harder to pick up the pieces and get along and on with our lives. According to her, that is her expressed wish-- and mine also. She said that they had a group therapy session at the 'safe house' last night and she found our and confessed that she has an addiction to 'lying, spending, and getting credit cards behind my back' over the InterNet. I told her that we will still have to figure out and share house cleaning responsibilities at home and it won't be easy. Our personalities clash and that also needs to be worked on. I personally believe that if a couple puts all the trust and faith in God and follow the BIBLE and read/ study it regularly-- that they can work things out. But I was honestly PREPARED and put it all into God's hands-- weather she wanted to go her own way and divorce-- or reconcile. I figured that if I apologized 100 times for my faults and promised to work harder on my personality flaws, I really could not do any more to convince her or move her into making some decision. I figured that it must be God's Will either way and get on with my life. That's the way I feel about it. A man [or woman] can only do so much as a human being. I got some good advice from Rob in CA-- to just say, "Yes, Dear" to everything the wife says... lol. I guess we will play it by ear and try harder. But I know my blood pressure sue did shoot up with many more hurts, pains and physical trouble brought on by this sudden crisis. Death of a spouse, losing a job, going bankrupt are also top hitters on the stress list.

Thank all my Internet/ email/ blog friends for all their support and prayers. Thank Rob and Penny, from Ventura, CA, who called my by phone last night to encourage me!
He is a Vietnam Vet too, so we have a lot in common. Thank my Australian Vietnam Vets for their kind emails, and everyone else.

Well, I understand that this crisis in my life is NOTHING compared to the coming 'storm' that is going to happen in the USA and world of economic collapse and revolt/ rebellion. Again, I need more input as to WHY there was a 'run/ rush' in the U.S. to buy up all the Ammunition/ bullets shortly after Obama the clown became President... but I kind of already figure that the red blooded Patriots and those who cherish their Constitutional rights, freedoms and the 2nd Amendment 'smell a rat' and may be honing their instinctive survival skills by buying up certain "commodities." Only combat Vet understands what I am talking about.

Sharon will come home to a much cleaner, more organized house, as the cleaning lady came today and worked hard for 3 hours just trying to clean the kitchen, etc. But she loves to chat so much... lol. The VA gave me this cleaning service once a week that they farm out to different franchises to help some physically disabled Veterans who have a problem of bending over to get at/ clean hard to get places, etc.... and how happy I am to get some help! I also want to advise the disabled Vets to check out 'CHAMPVA' for their spouses health/ medical concerns-- good free benefits to deserving Vets' wives!! I only hope that Obama won't steal that from us Vets too... Woo Woo! Praise the Lord.
