Obama Appointed FCC Chairman Considers Dropping Ban On Explicit Profanity and “Non-Sexual” Nudity

In 2008, Julius Genachowski served as candidate Barack Obama’s Chairperson of the Technology. Upon winning the Presidency, Obama thanked the lawyer by appointing him to serve as Chairman of the nation’s Federal Communications Commission.

In September 2012, Genachowski instructed Commission staff to begin reviewing the Commission’s broadcast indecency policies and enforcement, arguing that present day indecency laws may not be in step with “First Amendment principles.”.....

To: KentuckyTim; All
To begin with, the Founding States made the first numbered clauses in the Constitution, evidently a good place to hide them from Obama, Sections 1-3 of Article I, to clarify that all federal legislative powers are vested in the elected members of Congress, not in unelected bureaucrats in constitutionally undefined federal agencies like the FCC. So no bureaucrat in so-called "independent federal regulatory agencies" like the FCC can regulate speech, even to declare that there are no regulations.

And speaking of regulating speech, Thomas Jefferson had noted that the Founding States had made the 10th Amendment to clarify that the states had reserved government power to regulate our constitutional rights, even those protected by the 1st Amendment, uniquely to the states, power now limited by the 14th Amendment, regardless that the Founding States had also made the 1st Amendment to clarify that such powers are prohibited to Congress entirely.

"3. Resolved that it is true as a general principle and is also expressly declared by one of the amendments to the constitution that ‘the powers not delegated to the US. by the constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively or to the people’: and that no power over the freedom of religion, freedom of speech, or freedom of the press being delegated to the US. by the constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, all lawful powers respecting the same did of right remain, & were reserved, to the states or the people: that thus was manifested their determination to retain to themselves the right of judging how far the licentiousness of speech and of the press may be abridged without lessening their useful freedom, and how far those abuses which cannot be separated from their use should be tolerated rather than the use be destroyed (emphasis added); …" --Thomas Jefferson, Kentucky Resolutions, 1798.

So as Jefferson indicated, it's basically up to the individual states, not Congress or any rogue agency of the corrupt federal government, to reasonably decide how far laws to limit speech can go.

It must mean nudity that does not take place during sexual intercourse.

Wait a sec, I thought that little freak was no longer in that position.

IF this is accurate, it doesn’t even make me blink -
the faster the wheels fall off this whole mess, the more
time to do the real work of cleaning out the filth.

Whew! Had me worried for a minute there ... I am convinced that my stepping from the shower is absolutely non-sexual hudity, but the FCC department had to put their stamp of approval on that one! ... Thought I was gonna have to start taking a shower with clothes on!

To save your family, kids, marriage, ethics & religion, you have to live way out on a farm, grow your food, homeschool your kids, throw away TV, radio and video games, live off the grid & out of the big eye of government and only contact others you know are like minded good people via dead letter drops. Anything less and our corrupt society will turn your brain to mush and make you into a slave to the Devil. Am I overstating the crisis?

They are already easing the foul language on tv. I was watching Dallas last week and they said the s*** word not once but 2 times I remember telling my husband I was shocked. I watched the original Dallas back in the day and they never had bad words. Obama and his ilk are bad for America

HMMMM... Was “non-sexual” nudity ever banned by the FCC? Just wondering when or if? For those old enough to remember, several times, PBS broadcasted a movie over the FCC airways in the 1980’s which contained several instances of full frontal nudity. The name of the movie escapes me now but IIRC it was considered a “classic” portrayal of “heaven” or some such trash.

What bothers me even more is that most will censor the F word, but are perfectly OK with someone using the Lord’s name as a curse.

I think they should allow non-sexual sex, as well, especially for kids programs.

I am all for nude reporters at obama press conferences. Oh, that’s right. He doesn’t do those.

If they ever open up the White House tours, can I go naked?

All of which the purpose is for the people to get behind an attack on placing restrictions on said first amendment, with the ultimate goal being a Constitutional Convention to turn the U.S Constitution on its ass. Just whittling away on one root at a time.

What will constitute non-sexual, remember Clinton said the Lewinsky is not sex.

“If enacted, the new FCC policy would allow network television and local radio stations to air the f-word, the s-word and to allow programs to show frontal female nudity, even during hours when they know children will be watching and listening.”.....

The muzzies would love that to happen as it gives more credability to their cause.

All the more reason to get rid of the FCC entirely. T
