Essay: The Durbin Amendment - The New 'Fairness' Doctrine with a Kicker
I love when two stories come together so neatly.
On the same day that Newsweek is highlighting a "conservative" who works for them, who also wants to Hush Rush, that same newspaper is shown to be financially supporting communist Air America.
As Limbaugh is want to say, "You just can't make this stuff up!"
Do you see this as propaganda?
Was the Newsweek / Air America deal a business decision?
Well we can certainly rule out Newsweek embarking with Air America as a business decision.
Rush radio gets 20 million listeners a week; Air America radio might as well be an air guitar from looking at its listener ratings.
If Newsweek were looking for a serious business decision, it would be begging Rush to allow their "Newsweek On Air" to have a spot on his sucessful show.
Instead, with bad business decisions like this, their name should soon be, "Newsweek on Oxygen".
I love the Newsweek article from Dec. 17, 2006, just after Air America files for Chapter 11 backrupcy, stating that the problems at Air America were simply that they hired "a bunch of comedians."
And Al Franken is currently stealing the senate seat in Minnesota, along with his rich Jewish media-Scribe associations in both Hollywood and our news capital New York City -- both outside the senatorial representation area of the State of Minnesota. Also, not funny.
The failure of Air America was never atributed by Newsweek to a failure to connect with Americans.
Funny -- Rush has never had to declare bankrupcy.
Well, that pretty much leaves ultra-liberal media-Scribes from Newsweek teaming up with ultra-liberal media-Scribes from Air America, to both bloviate against their competition - Rush Limbaugh.
What about Censorship?
By highlighting the gagging of Rush Limbaugh on its front page, one can only deduce that Newsweek strongly advocates censorship.
Oh sure, I agree -- Newsweek's spokesman is only asking Rush's own people to censor Rush.
But, let me ask you this question, "Shouldn't Newsweek be the first to defend against any form of censorship?"
Why is Newsweek all for "selective" censorship against some?
Why does Newsweek feel the need to be provocative enought to imply outright censorship?
I can tell you why.
As part of the gigantic Jewish media-Scribe monopoly, Newsweek has little to fear from censorship.
Newsweek will never be censored, no matter what Durbin Censorship Amendment comes out of Congress.
RINO running through Newsweek
Case in point.
The author of the hit piece on Rush entitled "Enough! A conservative's case against Limbaugh" is David Frum.
Now David From goes into great detail displaying his "conservative" credentials. I put scare quotes around "conservative" because Mr. Frum finally gets around to his agenda on the 4th page and it is a liberal agenda.
Should it be a surprise that an ultra-liberal news-magazine hires a "conservative" to editorialize how Rush should be censored.
"Why, Newsweek is just publishing both sides of the story", their spokesman would say.
The Durbin Amendment
And the Jewish Sanhedrin now have exactly the firepower it needs to censor America.
In the Durbin Amendment, the FCC can capriciously pull a license anytime it wants. -- Boom, you're off the air!
Written by Illinois Democratic Senator Dick Durbin, S.160's Purpose is "To encourage and promote diversity in communication media ownership, and to ensure that the public airwaves are used in the public interest."
And the worst part of the Durbin Amendment is the possibility that Obama's FCC may now be empowered to prematurely pull the broadcast licenses of radio stations they deem as failing to meet these new "Fairness" Doctrine-esque guidelines. Several lawyers who do this for a living see this rider's wording as amorphous enough to allow for this interpretation.
This would be absolutely devastating to talk radio. Stations currently carrying Conservative and Christian talk would be perpetually under the FCC gun - never knowing when the regulatory hammer would fall and crush their businesses. They would feel tremendous pressure to change formats so as to be able to stay on the air.
And no one would be able to justify the enormous expense of getting into talk radio if their lifeline - their broadcast license - could be pulled capriciously at any time.
These licenses would then be awarded to more "diverse" owners who show a greater desire in meeting the Obama FCC's definition of the "local" and "public interest." You know, ACORN activists and MoveOn.org hosts who couldn't cut the mustard on National Public or Pacifica Radio.
In the real world, the public interest is best served by what the public is interested in. Conservative and Christian talk radio survives and thrives because people listen, and Liberal talk fails because they don't.
But none of this matters in this brave new "diverse" world. Liberals never liked the free market with it's equality of opportunity. They have always preferred an equality of outcome - where shows that have listeners are forced to share the airwaves with those that don't.
The Durbin Amendment solves the Left's "Fairness" Doctrine dilemma. It gets them what they want - radio free of Conservative and Christian talk - without the political baggage of carrying the "Fairness" Doctrine name.
For them, a rose by any other name still smells as sweet if it serves to silence the opposition.

The Christian Solution
Solutions will no longer come at the national level from either national Democrats or national Republicans.
The only Christian Solution remaining for America is for our States to call a Constitutional Convention in order to repeal the 17th Amendment, which has totally cut The States out of the "checks and balances" power loop with the federal government.
And inside the Christian Solution is a suggestion that Christian Americans can and should take away the microphone monopoly that the Jewish media-Scribes use to talk us into all kinds of trouble.
For that is not censorship, that is a call for freedom of speech.
