Somebody snap his bowtie. Enough is enough already. That little rodent hasn’t done anything but conduct investigations since he got into office.

I wonder which will happen first here in the U. S. - the War Against Islam or the open rebellion against the federal government.

‘Cause they’re both coming.

Relevant paragraphs

Others on the Democrat side are pushing ahead with other plans. Rep. Henry Waxman has asked his investigative staff to begin compiling reports on Limbaugh, and fellow radio hosts Sean Hannity and Mark Levin based on transcripts from their shows, and to call in Federal Communications Commission chairman Kevin Martin to discuss the so-called "Fairness Doctrine."

"Limbaugh isn't the only one who needs to be made uncomfortable about what he says on the radio," says a House leadership source. "We don't have as big a megaphone as these guys, but this all political, and we'll do what we can to gain the advantage. If we can take them off their game for a while, it will help our folks out there on the campaign trail."

Someone needs to tell Waxman to brush up on his First Amendment

I defy this evil little totalitarian hideous troll to put Mark Levin on the stand. He will wish his mother never met his father when Levin gets through with him.

Waxman:

Levin, "the Great One"

Here are two things Mr. Waxman had better keep in mind when going after talk radio:

1.Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

2. A well regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.

Conservatives only have Talk Radio, Fox News & The Washington Times for unbiased reporting of the Democrats and their agenda.

Liberals have all the rest of Big Media!

The Show Trials have been in effect for some time.

Frist was hounded out of office. As was DeLay. As was Foley. As was Newt.

Doesn’t matter if there is no “there” there.

They are doing the same as the Iranian nutjob. He captured Britians that he claimed were “spies”. They he commuted their sentences in absence of trial to show “how good he was” and to keep them from being able to present any evidence in their defense.

Stalin’s useful idiots serve the dark side.

Republicans should take a lesson from these Dims, they are brilliant and ruthless politicians, who work hard against their enemies, (who are unfortunately us, instead of America’s enemies abroad).

Republican reps should have been intimidating the DNC/MSM this way, a decade ago.

Conservatives don’t have Fox News. Newscorp executives give to Democrats for president. They are to the right of CNN but then CNN US is to the right of CNN in Europe.

Did Fox News expose Rathergate as NEWS the day it broke?

While political corruption is growing, the Gov't investigations of itself go nowhere and as long as the Bill of Rights is in force to some degree, investigations of the Press likewise.

Waxman know his constitution well!!!

Unlike bourgeois democratic constitutions, the Soviet Constitution placed limitations on political rights, whereas in bourgeois democratic countries these limitations are usually left up to the federal legislative or judicial systems, or state constitutions and their corresponding executive, legislative and judicial systems. Article 6 effectively eliminated organized opposition to the government by granting to the CPSU the power to lead and guide society. Article 39 enabled the government to prohibit any activities it considered detrimental by stating that “Enjoyment of the rights and freedoms of citizens must not be to the detriment of the interests of society or the state.” Article 59 obliged citizens to obey the laws and comply with the standards of socialist society as determined by the party. The government did not treat as inalienable those political and socioeconomic rights the Constitution granted to the people. Citizens enjoyed rights only when the exercise of those rights did not interfere with the interests of socialism, and the CPSU alone had the power and authority to determine policies for the government and society. For example, the right to freedom of expression contained in Article 52 could be suspended if the exercise of that freedom failed to be in accord with party policies. Until the era of glasnost, freedom of expression did not entail the right to criticize the government. The government had the power to ban meetings by unsanctioned religious groups, and violations of the laws limiting the right to freedom of religious expression were severely punished under the republics’ criminal codes.

I encourage anyone interested in understanding the libs behaviors to read the old USSR constitution (1977 version).

Wesley Clark told Tucker Carlson last week that there should be ratings on political speech! These RATS are out of their minds. Sadly, many people agree with them and would ALLOW them to get away with it.

"We don't have as big a megaphone as these guys, but this all political, and we'll do what we can to gain the advantage. If we can take them off their game for a while, it will help our folks out there on the campaign trail."

Oh, how stupid can a Democrat get?

The first effect will be to boost ratings and rant opportunities for Rush, Hannity, and Levin.

The second effect will be to stir up the Republican base, without a countervailing effect on the Democrat base.

The third effect will be to loosen the Democrats' hold on independent voters. This is such an obvious political ploy -- driven by a seriously ugly man -- that the Dems will be hurt by it.

And, finally, I think the internet pajamahadeen are going to end up reacting to this in ways that Nosewax doesn't expect. His own ethical status will go under the microscope, and will almost certainly turn up some skeletons ... which Messrs. Limbaugh, Hannity, and Levin can then broadcast with their "Big Megaphones."

Bring it on, Nosewax.

‘Cause they’re both coming.

We are going to have to win the rebellion against the imperial federal government first. There is no way we can win the war on illegals, the Islam murderers and the war against the Marxists and RINOs in Sodom on the Potomac. We have to take Sodom first before we can do the other.

This is serious stuff folks. The left, and their politicians in the U.S. gov’t, want the voices of their opposition silenced, and they are intent on accomplishing it.

David Horowitz was on CSPAN yesterday explaining that, for the left (and he KNOWS the left), politics is “war by other means”. Republicans think of politics as ideas leading to elections leading to public policy. That’s why it always seems like we’re playing the game with one hand tied behind our backs -— it’s because the other guys are playing a completely different game than we are.
