The following is a KSCO commentary. Here is Kay Zwerling:
Last Fall, Obama’s radical Left agenda received a strong negative response, but that has not deterred him. Instead, he is giving the American people the middle finger and is rapidly moving ahead with his agenda.
His new plan is to circumvent Congress and implement his socialist schemes through unelected bureaucracies like the Federal Communications Commission – the FCC.
He aims to shut down talk radio before the 2012 election.
Obama needs only three votes from the five-member FCC to shut down conservative radio.
He just got it.
One new Commissioner is Mignon Clyburn, daughter of Democratic House leader Jim Clyburn, who also wants to shut down talk radio.
Second chosen Commissioner is Julius Genachowski who has clerked for many liberal Judges.
And, the final new person on the FCC is Mark Lloyd, called the FCC Chief Diversity Officer who is also a senior fellow of the far Left, Center for American Progress, funded by billionaire liberal George Soros.
With more conservatives in the Senate, and a majority in the House, we have a chance to block the FCC and force the President to back off his plan.
I say – isn’t it clear when someone powerful want to silence someone else, it must be because the eager silencer knows that his position might not be so strong or fair. How cowardly.
But, Obama does not care – he will move fast because he really wants a four-year second term.
As we speak, Obama, et al., just came up with new ways to destroy talk radio.
According to Dick Morris in his new book “Revolt”, the FCC now plans to close down stations the following four ways:
#1. Shorten license for station from eight years to four years.
#2. 25% of talk station programming must be locally produced.
#3. Require stations to establish community advisory boards.
#4. FCC also wants to fine radio stations which break the above rules.
All this is to stifle free speech.
Shame on you, Barack!
Most radio talk stations will not allow themselves to be dictated to in this oppressive and dictatorial manner, and will fight the arrogant restrictions.
Listeners, here we have a taste of socialism.
Are we really doing to give Obama another four years?
All we can do is to be alert, and reject loud and clear, and tell our Congress to deny any funding whatsoever for the FCC.
