FREEDOM OF THE PRESS REVISION THIS THURSDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2009 BY FCC?

Our communications are at stake!  Please let your voices and those of all our fellow freedom advocates be heard LOUDLY!

 Phil  Kerpen, Chairman of Internet Freedom Coalition and Director of Policy at Americans for Prosperity, has stated on Glenn Back  (Tuesday, October 20, 2009) that Van Jones (deposed Obama Czar now working under John Podesta at Center for American Progress) was on the board of FreePress (see the below donation request).  

Obama stated:  “I will take a back seat to NO ONE in my commitment to network neutrality.”

Phil Kerpen: “Obama is a big proponent of ‘Net Neutrality’.” “This is an issue that very few Americans know about.   But to the hard-core ideological left, especially the online left, this is their HOLY GRAIL. This is something they have been pushing for, for a long, long time.”

The FCC is poised to vote on Internet Neutrality and Regulation – turning it over to the GOVERNMENT THIS THURSDAY, October 22, 2009.  The Christian Coalition has signed on to this agenda saying they believe GOVERNMENT WILL DO MORE TO PROTECT CHRISTIAN RIGHTS OF FREE SPEECH THAN CORPORATIONS; they will.  “A few conservative groups have signed up by buying into the scare stories that if we don’t get government to step in and regulate the big bad phone and cable companies will block Christian sites because they don’t like what you have to say and so on and so forth.” said Kerpen.  The CEO’s of Amazon, Google, Ebay, Facebook and Twitter have signed a letter of support (many of these entities are staunch Obama supporters and in fact, one of the founders of Facebook ran Obama’s online campaign and still works for him today.

This agenda pushes for FREE BROADBAND FOR EVERYONE – ANOTHER GOVERNEMENT ENTITLEMENT PROGRAM, as well as control of this very same media you are now reading!

 Here is a copy of the notice for the meeting as published on the FCC website.

Freedom of Information Act Requests

The Freedom of Information Act, commonly known as the FOIA, was enacted by Congress in 1966 to give the American public greater access to the Federal Government’s records. You do not have to file a FOIA request to obtain information which is routinely available for public inspection, including records from docketed cases, broadcast applications and related files, petitions for rulemakings, various legal and technical publications, legislative history compilations, etc. Much of this information is already available on the FCC website, but if you would still like to file a FOIA request, follow the instructions on our FOIA web page.

From Free Press Action Fund:

The Local Community Radio Act is moving fast through Congress. Just today, the full House committee voted for it, too. Translation: We’re one step closer to replacing radio monotony with true diversity on the dial (please see my original e-mail below).

This vital bill has never made it this far on Capitol Hill. Free Press needs your help to ensure that the full Congress votes for local radio. Contribute now and make better radio a reality.

Thanks – Candace

Dear XXYYZZ,

Talk about a giant leap! You and thousands of other Free Press activists told Congress to breathe new life into local radio.

Yesterday, Congress listened. A House subcommittee overwhelmingly voted in favor of the Local Community Radio Act (HR 1147), a bill that would open the airwaves to hundreds of local independent radio stations.

This bill has never made it this far before. We’re making a final push to ensure that all of Congress votes for better radio… right now!

Can You Chip In $25 to Make Better Local Radio a Reality?

Donations from people like you have made it possible for the Free Press Action Fund and our allies to light up the phones on Capitol Hill and to secure nearly 90 bipartisan co-sponsors for the bill. But much more must be done:

  • Our lobbyist needs to visit 40 more offices on the Hill to get us to over 100 co-sponsors
  • We need to keep building support from leaders and organizations across the political spectrum
  • We need to mobilize activists in key congressional districts to keep the pressure on Congress

The Local Community Radio Act would open the radio dial to vibrant local stations and help to reverse decades of recycled playlists by corporate radio. A big push right now could make the difference in passing this crucial bill this year.

The Free Press Action Fund is supported by our members — we don’t take money from businesses, government or political parties, making your gift all the more essential.

Can You Contribute $25 to Bring Independent Voices to the Radio Dial?

Your support can help shape the future of radio in America. Please donate today.

With thanks,

Candace Clement

P.S. We’re so close to a victory for better radio. We never would have made it this far without the amazing work of our allies at the Prometheus Radio Project. Please take a moment to learn more about them by visiting www.prometheusradio.org.

  1. HELLO!??? PEOPLE????!!!!

    DO YOU NOT REALIZE THE FEDERAL GOV’T HAS DECLARED WAR ON YOU?

    Petitions, calls, protests, rallies, begging the very same people who are intent on abolishing your rights doesn’t make much sense if YOU THINK about it, DOES IT?

    DC has made it manifestly clear that they will continue the march toward our destruction, our sovereignty, our rights, our constitution no matter WAHT we say about it.

    So WHAT are you prepared to DO about it?

    RALLIES ARE NOT WORKING! Duh.

  2. Thank you for posting here. My questions to you is what are you doing about it? Are you attending rallies, are you emailing, faxing, sending telegrams and overnight letters to your representatives? Are you going out an educating others on what you have just posted? Are you registering voters and encouraging them to get active in the process? What are you doing TODAY to get rid of “the very same people who are intent on abolishing your rights”?

    We CANNOT wait until 2010 or 2012. The work begins years in advance. How long do you think all of this has been in motion? I postulate since long before the days of the Weather Underground. Obama is a PERPETUAL CANDIDATE. He NEVER stops campaigning!

    Is it better to sit back and say this doesn’t work or that doesn’t work so we do nothing?

    In the wordsof Thomas Jefferson, “All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to REMAIN SILENT.” My intent is to encourage you NOT TO REMAIN SILENT!

  3. Me? You are preaching to the choir, w/me.

    Have long been on this, actively since NAFTA. For many years was considered an alarmist crank … “It’s the ecomony stupid!” and I responded, it certainly is, it is leaving this country and impoversihing us.

    TOO MANY ARE STILL not up to speed on the REALITY, that we are at the precipice from which there may be no return.

    As for me, I have signed the recall application for one of our senators and am actively working to get the whole lot of them removed before 10 & 12.

    Am recommending we ignroe dc entirely, at once taking away their “final word” on issues and asserting sovereign state rights.

    Lots of things to do but too many still think they need to work within the “system.”

    WHAT system?
