I just wanted to share this article I received today....it seems they will try to shut down Christian broadcasting.......(the new administration)......not much freedom is left, it seems...we can speak up and fight and pray.....


Silencing the Watchmen
By Jan Markell

America is changing at break-neck speed and many of the changes are not helpful! While Americans were eager for "change," it is doubtful they anticipated the loss of free speech.


So let me explain the unfair "Fairness Doctrine." My radio program, Understanding the Times, is in the target range.


The National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) met last weekend in Memphis and according to President Frank Wright, experienced an ominous shroud cast by the issue of the "Fairness Doctrine." They intend to fight this issue as much as that is possible. However, they may not even be given the opportunity to fight it as they would wish.


In an article posted online by Human Events on February 6, "Christian broadcasters say they will be targeted once President Obama's appointees gain control of the Federal Communications Commission."


Warren Kelley, president of Point of View, the first Christian talk show to go on the air via satellite 37 years ago, states, "The Left Wing will immediately start filing complaints, and it will in short order shut Christian broadcasting down." He concludes, "I think it will so limit what they say that, in essence, they will cease to be Christian broadcasters".


NRB President Wright says that he expects Christian broadcasters to be hit hard because of the doctrine's requirement for so-called "balance."


Human Events has information that the Christian talk giant of Salem Communications may be the first targeted. Please note that I air on many Salem stations including Minneapolis/St. Paul, Seattle, and Portland. Salem's national talk show host Janet Parshall states, "What we want to do is tell the message of Jesus. What the 'Fairness Doctrine' would have us do is give equal time to Buddha, Allah and (Scientologist) L. Ron Hubbard." NRB President Wright backs that up by saying, "If an opposing view must be found for every matter of controversy, Christian broadcasters could find themselves in the unenviable and untenable position of seeking out other religious viewpoints - Islamic, Hindu, Buddhist, or atheist - to counter what ministers of the gospel say on air."


The process would work this way: A Muslim group such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) or a homosexual rights group such as the ACLU, would file a complaint with the FCC because Understanding the Times radio failed to provide the proper contrasting view. The FCC would be empowered to force the station to present the other side of the story or lose its license. Many stations would opt to cancel the show to avoid the controversy and legal expense.


One of last Saturday's radio guests on Understanding the Times is Gary Cass of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission. Tune in on my Radio Archives to hear Gary explain this process. It does not require any vote in Congress. It just requires the new head of the FCC to sign a paper and the "Fairness Doctrine" is law again, having been abolished by President Reagan in the early 1980s.


As it looks now, this policy will only apply to Christian and conservative talk radio, not the print media or TV. They already lean left and conservatives will not be given the same opportunity to be a balance in those arenas. Nor would they be given an opportunity to speak on liberal talk radio such as Air America.


Christian radio upsets the Left because it opposes same-sex marriage, abortion, teen pregnancy, strict teaching of evolution, and the liberal secular movement. Thus, we are targeted even before Rush Limbaugh who actually sways elections.


While President Obama was vague on this issue during the campaign, he is no longer! The White House Web site on its technology agenda page states that the president plans to "encourage diversity in the ownership of broadcast media, promote the development of new media outlets for expression of diverse viewpoints, and clarify the public interest obligations of broadcasters who occupy the nation's spectrum."


George Orwell's 1984 may have been 25 years early but the world it envisions has arrived. Welcome to the new America. G-d has allowed a strong delusion to take over this nation. Hopefully Christians (and the Jews) on their knees can lessen the damage.

The fairness doctrine is just super retarded!!!  Like what are they going to do kick Gordon Liddy or Brian Wright and replace it with some kind of pro gay pro communist and or sensitivity training program.  It will just create some bureaucratic oversight just because someone is offended over some Christian show and they have to find and replace it with some kind of pro left show.   >:( >:(  I don't even think left wing talk radio was even popular in the past.

The more this mulatto and his minions do to destroy MY country, the more I find myself hating the black race for overhwhelmingly putting him in office. And guess what? I am hearing from MORE and MORE white people that they feel the EXACT SAME WAY. If not for black men like Pastor Manning, he is one of the few saving graces in all of this.

So much for Obama helping to heal racial divisions....he is making them so much worse!

Most blacks cared more about superficial things like their RACISM..getting one of "our own" in, that they did NOT care about the very SURVIVAL of our country. I say screw them!

Not one of them had better EVER come to me and expect sympathy for their issues again. BECAUSE I WON'T GIVE ONE DAMN, JUST LIKE THEY DIDN'T CARE ABOUT MY COUNTRY!!! >:(

I receive articles from Jan Markell too.  She has been right about everything especially the Fairness doctrine.   We will have to fight to keep freedom of speech, no doubt about!   Our way of life is being snuffed out!

Unfortunately, though...alot just sit on the sidelines and watch or ignore, they are not fighters, this is half the reason (or more) that America is going downhill the way it has been.....nobody cares alot (well, we do here, but you know what I mean)....

Ive even talked to VETERAN'S who are AFRAID to speak up, I had one tell me "I don't want to end up in a Camp"  :o I couldn't believe it....well, yes, I could...

Hanna:  I get Jan's emails too, she is wonderful and so knowledgeable.  She foretold all these things that are happening to us under this Change to Socialism.

One of her newsletters says there are Two Americas.  The Left who wants to look as much like Western European countries as possible and wants Europe's quasi-pacifism, cradle to grave socialism, egalitarianism and secularism.  The Right wants none of these values to dominate America.   The Right wants America to continue to be what it has always been- A Judeo Christian society with a largely secular government that is not indifferent to faith.  The Right still believes in the Bible, the Declaration of Independence, and the Constitution as the guiding principles. 

The Left sees Washington as "the New Jerusalem," and in 2008 they had a far-left candidate who was called the Messiah by some.  The Left believes in and lives with no Immutable Standards.

I read last week where a judge in Raleigh, NC ordered parents to put their two children in public school. Despite the fact that they were testing at a level of two grades above their current grade. The reason is the mom stated the schooling was Christian based and the judge thought they should be exposed to and learn about evolution as the origin of man.

I am sincerely worried. With all that is going on and all that is in the works. My family, friends, and I are the new enemies. We are seemingly more despised than Islamic terrorists. What is going to happen? So much of what I have been taught and what I stand for is under assault. Obama has been in office for only a few months, just think, at least three and a half more years to scheme. Will non-conformers be forced to fight for their very existence? I never dreamed this would happen in my lifetime.
