‘Fascist’: Matt Drudge blasts Dianne Feinstein for trying to define who is and isn’t a ‘real reporter’

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D.-Calif., thinks a proposed media shield law should be applied only to “real reporters,” not basement-dwelling, pajama-clad bloggers with no professional credentials:

“I can’t support it if everyone who has a blog has a special privilege … or if Edward Snowden were to sit down and write this stuff, he would have a privilege. I’m not going to go there,” she said.

Feinstein introduced an amendment that defines a “covered journalist” as someone who gathers and reports news for “an entity or service that disseminates news and information.” The definition includes freelancers, part-timers and student journalists, and it permits a judge to go further and extend the protections to any “legitimate news-gathering activities.”

Under the definition proposed by Feinstein, a student working for a tiny college newspaper would get protection, but Matt Drudge, the owner and operator of the most successful news site on the Internet, might not.

As far as we know, the distinction Feinstein is making isn’t mentioned in the First Amendment. But what do we know? We’re just bloggers.

          A “Real Reporter” will now be defined as someone who has shilled for, and eventually plans on working for a Democratic member of the government (see: 15th “journalist” to go work for Obama administration).

            Jesus people, does your entire world rotates around Obama.
            How’s this for a scenario where shield laws can be abused:
            Little Johnny writes in his blog tha he knows someone is shooting up the school Friday but when the gendarmes pick him up he will not divulge his “sources” and his attorney whips out a claim of reporter and shield laws. Now do you get it?

          • sobi

            What I get is that the little boy does not have to answer questions until summoned via a subpoena. He does not require a shield law.

            Shield laws apply to compelled testimony.

          • luis martinez

            “Shield laws apply to compelled testimony” duh? What do u think I am talking about?

          • sobi

            I believe you are referring to a scenario wherein a blog entry, presumably falling after last Friday and reference the coming Friday, so 7 days, and what subpoena could they issue? No case is pending.

            Journalists shouldn’t have to have shield laws in order to report the news.

          • BigSky1970

            Rather than lecture those you disagree with, you should be livid of the authoritarian nature of the federal government. Regardless of which party they belong to. But I guess, as long as the person has a (D) behind their name, it makes it okay in your rose-colored world.

            Land of the FREE ?

            Spying on you spying on me,
            This is no longer the ‘land of the free’.
            Tapping our phones and e-mail too,
            This is not America that we knew.

            The 4th Amendment is a thing of the past,
            The 9th and 10th thrown in the trash.
            Drones in the sky watching what we do,
            No longer FREEDOM for me and you.

            The NSA overstepping their bounds,
            They are now going after rodeo clowns.
            Freedom of speech almost dead we see,
            All due to the tyranny of King Obammee !

            The oath they took when sworn in,
            Is the same when I went to Vietnam.
            It means to the tyrants we see,
            That they are liars in the first degree.

            A land of sheep have we become?
            The rule of law should be number one.
            This old vet will die FREE,
            And not upon a bended knee!

            The 2nd Amendment is there you see,
            To keep America the ‘land of the free’ !
            Our founders were bright we all see,
            They knew tyranny was going to be.

            Are we going to set idly by,
            And watch the great America die?
            I am but one and we will see,
            If America continues to be the ‘land of the free !

            And it will eventually apply only to graduates of an approved journalism school, say like Columbia, which will allow prosecution of anyone not on the ‘approved’ list as established by some executive branch agency. Soon to follow will be a senate subcommittee with the responsibility of deciding what is fit to report in the media.

            Except for the Bay Area and Sacramento, Northern California is actually pretty conservative and Democrats are outnumbered. You have to go north of Sacramento to hit the conservative part of the state. It’s just that our votes are cancelled out by the liberals in LA, San Francisco, Sacramento, and the other urban areas. No one up here voted for Obama, Feinstein, or Boxer.

          Ms Theresa, if you spent it out in the rural areas, you wasted your time.

Then you have L.A. and all it’s sub-burbs and San Diego. Now, if you were in the big city and couldn’t find anybody…hmm, that would be a mystery.

            Conservatives are disenfranchised in California. Particularly here in the SF Bay Area where we do have a very popular conservative radio station. When we are asked to call our Senators to get them on board with a common sense piece of legislation, its laughable. You can hear the crickets on the other end of the phone. As has been said before, common sense is as common as it once was.

          • Stanley J. Walljasper

            Yep – When you call Boxer @ DC, you always get the answering machine. She’s too damn busy to answer the phone and so are her staff.

            As for Komissar Feinstein, go ahead and call all you want. Crickets. Want to send emails and faxes? More crickets…with the occassional auto deeply after a 3 or 4 week cooling off period, no doubt.

            Zero representation. ZERO.

            Same here in California. It’s essentially a pro to-Marxist state with a single party.

            More crickets. It’s beyond scandalous, folks.

            No, not all of LA suburbs and San Diego are more Democrat. I live in an L.A. suburb, my Rep is the House a Republican. Darrell Issa, also a Republican, represents a large district in San Diego county.

          • O2BNTEXAS

            Michelle, didn’t the state redistrict Issa’s district last election cycle, dropping Riverside? or something like that? He only won his last election by a few percentage points…if I remember right.

          • Michelle

            I’m not sure what your point is. Issa originally represented District 48 when he ran to replace retiring 9 term Republican, then next election decided to run for newly made 49th District, has been their Representative for over a decade. Last election a small part of Riverside was removed from his district. He didn’t win by only on a few percentage points – he won in 2012 with 58% percent, his Dem opponent getting only 42%. His district, largely made up of San Diego, has given their votes to every Republican running for Pres.. Congress and Gov. for the past 10 yrs. 2-3 of the districts surrounding his also have Republican Rep. in the House.

            So, there’s that. What part of CA do you live?

      Feinstein isn’t saying you dont have have freedom of speech. She is just defining those that have that freedom. Only journalists that she see’s qualified will have that freedom and protection.

      Feinstein believes EVERYONE has freedom of speech AS LONG as that Speech is defined by HER organization the Southern Poverty Law Center. As long as you agree with her (I meant them) you can say whatever you like. To those that don’t, we will introduce the reeducation Act. This Act will Educate all non-believers in special ‘schools’ why they need to agree with her. They can/and will be held indefinite until Feinstein sees fit as defined under the Dom estic Ter rorist Act.

        Progressivism is the disease that has infected both Parties. However, the Democrat Party is almost completely consumed with it; there is still hope for the Republicans, though. Conservatism must eject such progressives as McCain, Graham, Boehner, etc.

            Actually, it was being called “liberalism” as far back as 1886. In 1886 there appeared in Spain a work under the title
            El Liberalismo es Pecado: “Liberalism Is A Sin,” by Don
            Felix Sarda y Salvany, a priest of Barcelona and editor of a
            journal called La Revista Popular.

          • Dusty Thompson

            Old school hardly… Old school is “Progressive”. After the progressives so thoroughly destroyed themselves they needed a new name so they stole the name Liberal from the “classic” Liberals which are Libertarians… today the vast majority of “Liberals” actually believe they are Libertarian despite the obvious STATIST tendency we all see everyday.

            Bondage. It is a vote for utter bondage, where there will be a government minder in every living room, another family in your kitchen, and a politician in your bed, laying between you and your spouse, stealing the covers. That is the end game of Progressivism.

            How about as the President’s friend calls it, “Communism Lite”.

          • J. Longstreet

            Agreed, Gnome! Marxists are masters of constantly changing the language to cloud what they’re pushing for. For example, American communists began calling themselves socialists in the ’50s & ’60s because communism was hated in American culture and socialism was a more vague term. And it had the word “social” in it and kind of nestled in nicely with the pushes for social justice and social reform at that time. But people eventually saw how destructive these people were, so they changed their title again and began referring to themselves as liberals. That stuck for a long time, but just try finding any politician anywhere in the past few years who will claim the monicker “liberal”. It has powerfully negative connotations. As it should. So now they refer to themselves as progressives. But it’s the SAME people. The same movement. Communist, socialist, liberal, progressive…it’s all exactly the same political movement with the same political goals: Centralized government with a small ruling class running everything through a monstrous bureaucracy. I refuse to play their word games.

        Liberal moral relativism! Yes there are corrupt members of the GOP but not nearly “as corrupt and sick” or plentiful as there are in demoncrat party. No Republican voted for Obamacare yet only a few demoncrats voted against it, mostly because they were up for reelection. That alone demonstrates the difference between the two parties. I’m old enough to remember a time when there were actual conservative Democrats, who put their patriotism before their party loyalty and their political careers. Sadly, those days are long LONG gone. RINOs like McCain and Graham are down right socialist compared to a past “moderate” Democrat like Sam Nunn.

      These tyrants are simply using what is available to them to further their agenda. The existing system is/was more susceptible to fascism than communism. Once they have consolidated power to the degree that it cannot be reversed they will flip the switch and turn on true communism. Fascism is but a stepping stone.

    • NorgeX

      There are multiple brands of Socialism. Fascism is one (The term Nazi translates to Nationalsozialismus, who came to power because they down-played their anti-capitalist agenda and actually gained the support of ‘industrialists’, ie; big business…..sound familiar?) Communism is the second ‘name-brand’ of socialism. This is why Stalin and Hitler were terrified of each other as they saw the world eventually being socialist and didn’t want they ‘other-brand’ dominating. Progressives is the third brand of socialism and is the current darling of the movement. While both Fascism and Communism exhorted work on behalf of the state from its people, Progressive-ism, on the other hand, consolidates its power by deception, in that it attempts to get a large majority to be dependent on the state, (wealth redistribution..or as they call it on the street; “getting mine”), hence the explosion in the size of state and federal work-forces, welfare or subsidized living, in all areas governed by progressives. Now in the U.S. about 38% of the people are supporting all the rest of the population AND the national defense and all other government agencies. Until EVERYONE pays something towards the cost of government, there will no longer be a ‘representative-democracy’ in the country, as it is simply impossible for 38% to gain a representative advantage.

I mean, you’ve already shown yourself to be a fascist, why not be completely open?

          This, ladies and gentlemen, is the leftist… a weak, hate-filled, pitiful creature who hates heresy.

            Hokay, bubba. :)

            So, if you’re not religious, are you an Ayn Rand style of libertarian? More specifically, what’s your objection to single-payer healthcare?

          • Evil Otto

            Aww, how cute. The troll (who totally isn’t joking about wanting opponents to die, honest ‘n ‘fer real) wants me to engage him in dialog about health care, to share my objections about single-payer.

            No.

            You’re an empty vessel, not worth the time to discuss anything with. I’m more than happy to mock you, drone, but as far as taking you seriously enough to talk health care? Not happening.

            Heh, nope. Take it as an insult, an expression of contempt. Y’see, troll, I know the game you’re playing. It’s the same one countless other clones of you have played.

            I would no more debate you than I would a Nazi. I’ll happily keep insulting you, empty vessel, but I will never take you seriously.

        The constitution does not apply to 0 and the Dems. They have ignored it for nigh 6 years. The constitution is enforced by the media and then the populace (the populace, being ignorant, can’t do it on their own) When that fails, then the 2cnd amendment- which used (before FDR) guarantee the right of weapons necessary to fight armies- provided the means to restore the constitution. With no enforcement- There effectively is no constitution.

      While I am not convinced Sarah Palin is an experienced statesman (per se), she could hardly be worse for the country than the current crop of Republicans (McCain, Graham, Boehner, etc..) and by no means is she near as bad as the Democrats. We know she loves this country, likes to exercise her rights, and would at least attempt to do the right thing by the American people. And her resume is by far more accomplished than Barry’s.

  • Laura A. Farrar

    The 1st amendment is protected by the 4th & 5th amendments in this case and there is no law needed. When the Bill of Rights was written anyone with a printing press or access to one was a journalist. I am pretty sure the founding fathers would have welcomed the idea of bloggers as press because they fit the intent of the the firswt amendment along the lines of freedom of thought(freedom of religion and free association) and freedom of speech.

    • http://www.presstitutes.org/ ms_anthro

      All of the amendments are protected by the Second.

      • Laura A. Farrar

        I agree. Just making the point that there is sufficient law available to define specific protections and there is no need to redefine it. Redefinition is just being made to undermine the Bill of Rights. But I do agree that when the govt steals all other rights the second amend is there for the explicit purpose to return them.I agree.

    • petie3

      The preferred means of communication at the time was Pamphlets, books or newspapers off a printing press and posted for general reading. ‘Freedom of the press’ refers to the story, whether on a pamphlet, a paper, a radio/TV/Blog, etc. It could be called ‘Freedom of thought.’

    While I am not as old as the Senator, I could be also thought of as an old bat. She is not the first but one of way too many Senators and Congresspeople who hang onto their jobs way past what ought to be a reasonable retirement age.

    I was stunned when the NSA stuff started to come out with just the notion that she at age 80 was in charge of the Senate Intelligence Committee. One would think a heavy duty background in technology would be absolutely necessary if the Senate or House wanted someone serious to watch over these groups. She must have been well into her 50’s when PC’s entered the workplace and as a Senator I doubt if she invested much time in learning the zillions of pieces of information needed today to ride herd on the super tech snoops.

    To that lack of qualification I wonder where she studied telecommunications. She was the wrong choice for that job a long time ago and both parties are in trouble and if they refuse to clean up their own acts, it will be done for them by We the People. As the song says, it’s important to know when to fold.

    Given the pace of change I almost think mandatory retirement should start anywhere between age 55 and 60. Lord knows they have the benefits from heaven for life and will be able to clean up making speeches but not one of them is irreplaceable and now we see some are dangerously capable of making fuzzy judgement calls.

    It’s similar to what is going on with health care. Lawyers who tend to shy away from science courses as undergraduates are rewriting Merck;’s Manual and telling physicians all sorts of things those Esquires know nothing about. Not a pretty picture. Soon the dentists will want to redo the tax laws. It’s nuts and more than ever, competence and integrity count.

      “Soon the dentists will want to redo the tax laws.”

      They cannot do any worse than the lawyers we have now.

    • http://www.presstitutes.org/ ms_anthro

      We need term limits. Age isn’t the issue. Having a permanent ruling class of unaccountable lawyers in Washington is the problem. Have half of these sociopaths ever even had real jobs outside of politics?

      • llewellynh

        Term limits are fine especially if there is a cut off age attached to them. There just is no way that an honest senior citizen can tell you that he or she thinks someone age 80 ought to be in charge of a senatorial committee never mind the one she chairs now. It’s so sad it’s laughable but also dangerous.

        The Senator’s personality has changed over recent years and the bubbly smile has been replaced with a stern one that reflects apparently what is in her brain currently. And sorry, age for almost all of us is an issue.

    And if one reports the news about such abuse, one will not be a “reporter” but a criminal guilty of slander.

  • Chad Woodburn

    “Freedom of the press” is not a freedom for just one segment of the press, such as professional journalists and news reporters. It extends to everyone just as much as freedom of speech extends to everyone. It is the freedom to communicate through writing and publication. The point of the First Amendment is that everyone has the right to communicate, whether by speaking or by writing, and therefore also the freedom to peaceably assemble so they can communicate with one another and the freedom to mass produce those communications through the use of printing presses (of which the Internet is merely a modern extension).

    Inasmuch as Congress has no Constitutional authority to abridge those freedoms, such laws are automatically null and void, and the citizens have no obligation to honor any such abridgments. On the contrary, it would become the patriotic right and duty of citizens to defy such laws and to subvert their enforcement.

  • Dale

    If Feinstein gets her way, and the government decides who is and who isn’t a journalist, it’s only one short step from controlling the journalists. A journalist would have to be licensed for government approval, and that license could be revoked if the journalist doesn’t please the government with his/her writing. Rather like the way the dictators of Communist China control their media. Feinstein is a dangerous woman! Did I say “woman”? Perhaps we need to define who is a woman and who isn’t. And while we’re at it, lets define who is a politician and who isn’t. Feinstein is a dangerous character. There! I didn’t call her a woman!

    Democrats have changed. Under Bush their attitude was that of Hillary’s and was THEN stated with her typical shrill tone “I’m sick and tired of people telling me I don’t have the right to criticize my government”.

    Now the Democrat Regime has a hatred of free speech and is looking for ways they can curtail it as much as possible. Remember, Democrats have a very deep fascistic streak. A few decades ago they rounded up hundreds of thousands of hard working, taxpaying, law abiding American citizens and threw them into concentration camps.

Sen. Feinstein has been on my show, but using her logic – the way I started would not be acceptable to qualify for her precious amendment.

    Feinstein is a member of a cabal, yes as hilarious as that sounds, she is a member of a large number of Congress that hold dual citizenship in a foreign country. Why? And what allegiance do these people have for the United States?

    Well Di let me clue you in ‘dearie’; There’s a blogger in Chicago (don’t know if he’s in his basement or pajamas) whose a Chicago Copper by trade. He’s not a ‘white-shirt’ or brass, just a regular ole blue-shirt wearing street cop who pounds the beat, and he’s got ’35th Street’ (CPD HQ) spitting nails.

    ‘Second City Cop’ tells it as it is for the world to see, not as the CPD bosses say it is to the MSM and sheeple of Chicago (“Crime Is Down” … ha! bs). And deny as they may the ‘bosses’ do read his blog and they’re ticked for him spilling the beans. Oh, your ‘professionals’ in Chi read it too and will sometimes blind-side the mayor or Supe with questions stats or incidents (crimes) taken right from the ‘Second City Cop’ blog. And Di you can bet the rent that mayor Tiny Dancer and PD Supt McCompStat [;-)] would love to find out who he is.

    Ergo, it’s folks like him, who are just spreading the truth and exposing what needs to see the light of day, that need this ‘shield’ if ever found out.

    The truth of the matter is the Commies like Feinstein, Shumer, Boxer, Lieberman and a whole horde of Jews on the left don’t like it one bit that they are losing the information war. With Jews owning almost 100% of main stream media, Hollywood and incredible clout with AIPAC, they have gotten used to telling us what to think. The internet and citizen reporters are a threat to their monopoly. Lieberman stated publicly that the US needs a “Chines style” internet. Thank God for Jews like Matt Drudge that are patriotic Americans. Jews that don’t put being a Jew above being an American. The ideas of Judaism and Communism are entirely consonant. That is the crux of the problem we face with the democratic party. The democratic party is loaded with communists that prey on the ignorance and greed of those in the democratic party to stay in power.

    It’s appalling that Feinstein would think that she is so much better than everyone else. She is becoming more and more delusional each day.

    How about if we have a litmus test to define what a real Senator is by determining if they practice Federalism, that is following the rules and procedures of the Constitution of the US. Then we can determine who is really principled and who is following their Constitutional oaths of office or instead who is derelict in their duties, which is nearly all of them anyway. If she really wants to go that route, let’s get it on.

    We have 24/7 surveillance by the NSA because of Senator Feinstein’s inept oversight of this spy organization while also pushing for the “Data Hub” that will give all IRS, Financial and Health records to the NSA and after helping to make our 4th Amendment a joke she attacks the 1st Amendment.

      Your comment is interesting. She (like so many of these corrupt career politicians) wants to ‘professionalize’ politics – make a temporary service position into her highly paid career for life.

  • rdhl77

    Feinstein? Where have I heard that name? Oh, I think I recall. Worked for the King George III pursuing pamphleteers in the colonies such as Thomas Paine because they published material the British deemed seditious and did not work for “legitimate” news organizations as defined by the British government. I thought she would be dead by now. I guess tyranny never dies. It just recedes into the shadows until it can take a different shape and reappear to assert its control over a free people.

    It has been said that “eternal vigilance is the price of liberty”. But I don’t recall anyone saying the government gets to decide who is on watch.

    You can get a feel for what Diane is trying to accomplish by reading some of the stuff by and on Cass Sunstein who was to be Obama’s minister of information for the internet, before the public outcry. What crony Sunstein proposed was that the government will filter internet posts and probably emails and edit or suppress as they see fit.

    It’s as if we woke up one day and found that our administration had borrowed Stalin and Mao’s playbooks and were updating them to the computer age.

    With the completion of the vast NSA center in Utah and the ability of NSA to gather everything going into or out of Google, facebook, microsoft et al we, the taxpayers have paid for the infrastructure to make us slaves. Further revelations about NSA’s Man In The Middle attacks provides the foundation for government control of the internet. The era of every post and email being scrutinized by the government and edited, delayed or simply destroyed is right around the corner. This is fine as Obama, Feinstein, Pelosi and others are infested with a gut hate for free speech .
    Cass Sunstein gives wings to their vision.

    If the description of Sunstein sounds draconian y’all need to read his words and listen to his PBS interview or simply google his name plus internet control.

    It’s interesting to note that Cass Sunstein is married to Samantha Power, another Obama insider and US Ambassador to the UN. She was one of the advocates of US intervention in Libya

    • therealguyfaux

      Look up the Leveson Report in Britain– they’re trying the same sort of “Nudge” Strategy that Sunstein is famous for, with regard to regulation of the press. Which is to say, they won’t outright “regulate the press”– they’ll induce the press to regulate itself, by setting up a system of rewards/punishments for agreeing to/declining to go along with the whole scheme.

      In other words, why waste bullets, if you can get the victim to hang himself?

Which is to say, they won’t outright “regulate the press”– they’ll induce the press to regulate itself, by setting up a system of rewards/punishments for agreeing to/declining to go along with the whole scheme.

      In other words, why waste bullets, if you can get the victim to hang himself?

    • Tinfoil A22hat

      Ah yes, Sunstein. Funny how this vile creature is kept so well hidden from public view, and thank you for pointing out this crucial connection. Sunstein is one evil s.o.b.

    Everybody knows a real journalist is someone who plants wet sloppy kisses on the anus of Obama and his liberal cohorts. Anybody who dares to stand up and tell the truth about the liberal liars and expose their lies and corruption is not a real journalist. Just ask the liberals.

    We can no longer afford to vote along party lines! There is no “lessor of two evils.” We will loose our country if this continues!
    Both parties offer us Socialist candidates. We must reject what they offer and realize WE have the power to choose for ourselves men and women who will represent us!

  • Richard Helm

    Given the fact that Washington DC is now inhabited by an administration who has no problem violating the law or our Constitutional Rights and a Congress who will not hold them accountable to their oaths of office, should it surprise you that Democrats are wanting to further control media people so they can sell their lies with reckless abandon?

    Today, what walks around declaring themselves a journalist working for a company with a liberal viewpoint should really be declared a propgandist not a reporter of news. These people represent PR arms of the Democrat party.

        According to what I’ve seen and read that’s been posted on the internet by military people, that’s not true. Vets and standing military are suffering as much as or more as the rest of us. VA applications for wounded vets being put off for 2-3 years denying them treatment, BO suggesting they have to pay their own medical bills for wounds gotten in battle in places the govt sent them, reductions in pay for their sacrifices, not being able to be armed on a military base which allowed the murder of soldiers at Ft. Hood while the govt calls it “workplace violence” so they can be denied benefits they deserve, having their expression of faith suppressed, etc, etc ad nauseum. I seriously doubt they are in the bag for BHO & Minions, Inc. They are Americans just like we are and their rights are being denied too. Oh ye who have little faith. I support our military because we are the home of the free because of the brave. It’s our Govt who are the losers, commies and socialists and fascists, not our guys and gals in the military. I thank them every day for who they are and what they represent. It’s the govt who wants to use them for nefarious reasons and then spits on them. It was great to see what happened to Ceaucescu and wife when the people had enough. The only thing keeping that from happening here is the Constitution that our military defend and our govt shreds every day.

    By: Mike Allen
    October 18, 2009

    White House senior adviser David Axelrod said Sunday that the Fox News Channel is “not really a news station” and that much of the programming is “not really news.”

    “I’m not concerned,” Axelrod said on ABC’s “This Week” when George Stephanopoulos asked about the back-and-forth between the White House and Fox News.

    “Mr. [Rupert] Murdoch has a talent for making money, and I understand that their programming is geared toward making money. The only argument [White House communications director] Anita [Dunn] was making is that they’re not really a news station if you watch even — it’s not just their commentators, but a lot of their news programming.

    “It’s really not news — it’s pushing a point of view. And the bigger thing is that other news organizations like yours ought not to treat them that way, and we’re not going to treat them that way. We’re going to appear on their shows. We’re going to participate but understanding that they represent a point of view.” …

    Well, to be fair, this is not really an ‘administration,’ at least not in the traditional sense of the term.

    That is, it does not represent the nation, as administrations are supposed to do.

    Instead, it is a collection of community agitators and thugs, like Mr. Axelrod, who are trying to ram through a radical leftwing political agenda.

    But, man alive, how the Obama-ites hate people who make money.

    (Except of course their master, Mr. Soros.)

    The Constitution protects and preserves our human rights – it does not “give” us any rights. Feinstein and the others are blatantly trying to oppress our human rights by defining “journalist” as one of their controlled political cronies.

    A very crucial part of a free “press” to our founder’s (especially during the American Revolution), were pamphleteers who printed short documents communicating their opinions to their fellow Americans. One famous pamphleteer of the Revolutionary War was Thomas Paine.

    Thomas Paine would be a blogger today and I’m certain he would be taking Feinstein to task for her efforts to steal our liberty.

    Oppression occurs when the government takes power from the people then uses that power to oppress them. That is what’s happening here and what is going to happen with Obamacare (the IRS in charge of running the nation’s health care??????).

    We have let them take too much power from us. The government is far too powerful and is pushing legislation to take even more power from the people and gives it to the government – and they are getting more and more bold in their oppression.

    For example Immigration Reform is nothing but a corrupt political scheme to flood the nation with cheap labor and manufacture tens of millions of fake votes out of thin air that will seal Feinstein and the rest of the ruling class into power – with no democratic way to remove them.

    when your computer prompts you to click “yes” or “no” to download a new program the smart choice is often “NO”. No means that your computer will continue to function the same as before you clicked “NO”. Now had you chosen to click “yes” and not been aware of all of the functions that the new program preforms then you might be scr3wed.

    Attention Feinstein: Read the 1st Amendment. It is clear on this. It says “Congress shall make NO law abridging the freedom of speech the press.” The “press” is what it is. Nowhere in the Constitution is Congress given the authority to define “who” the press is.

      Ask the DNC or haven’t you noticed the state of the late great golden state? It’s not Republican that have run the state of California into the ground, and the Democrat’s have gerrymandered districts to keep them in the majority. You don’t think the California state democrat’s don’t communicate with the national democrat party?

      California has 55 electoral votes both the state and national parties understand how gerrymandering California helps the democrat party on the state and national level.

    As usual, Drudge nails it. The uber-liberal left are the real Fascists in todays ‘power-politics’ as only Fascists deem it necessary to ‘classify’ or ‘define’ everyone into some category or capacity. It first started with the mentally ill during the Third Reich, then proceeded to encompass Jews, Gypsies/Romas, homosexuals, and eventually all non-Aryans. Here it is starting with the straight-caucasian, and the Christians, and now they are determining who can report the news?? How to control information: Control who can disseminate it. Feinstien is proof that the destruction of the COTUS is ‘job one’ for the new world order Fascists.

  • downton

    Has there ever been a socialist regime which permitted freedom of speech or press? Answer: No.
    Obama used the internet to get elected but he hates the fact that others can do the same or use it to criticize him. Socialists; Lenin, Stalin, Mao, etc all systematically murdered many thousands of their own citizens per year [they gave them show trials after they’d tortured ‘confessions’ out of them.] for the sole purpose of terrorizing their entire populations into silence. Absolute control cannot be achieved until all resistance is suppressed. Stalin and Mao enjoyed near absolute power for about 30 years each but at the cost of millions of lives. Such horrors can happen here too, make no mistake. Here’s a hint: Obama increased our forces in Afghanistan, but for what? Why on earth are we there? It’s because he thinks it increases his political power by enhancing his image. It has nothing whatever to do with our national security — a casual waste of american lives.
    The left has awakened to the fact that the biggest threat to them is the near complete freedom on the internet and so they will very soon be fabricating more lies to explain why internet freedom has to be curbed and ultimately curtailed. And taxed too, of course.
    Obama and most other dems are following the moth-eaten old socialist recipe like a pack of zombies and the mouth breathing majority sees nothing. We have forsaken every admonition the founders gave us. We are effortlessly relieved of our precious heritage due to sheer stupidity. Stupidity comes at a very high price as americans are about to find out.

  • sandyinindy

    Is Feinstein such a minor player that she is relegated to defining issues like Smallville’s Daily Planet, Mr. White??

  • DrDean

    A lot of people are mad as hell and say we must vote the bums out. But voting is NOT enough any more.

    The parties are too corrupt and are working on a way to nullify millions of our votes to seal themselves into power. Milton Friedman understood what we need to do:

    “It’s nice to elect the right people, but that isn’t the way you solve things. The way you solve things is by making it politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right things.”

    In other words, we the people need to put our boots on elected official’s necks and push – force politicians to do the right things. We are allowing them to get away with their increasing oppression because they know all we will do is complain say we’re going to vote them out – and nothing more.

    The leaders of both political parties are corrupt and their goal is complete power. They are using legislation to erode our power and build a ruling class with made up of themselves and their wealthy cronies. And they are working to ensure there is no democratic way to remove them – so they will be an elected tyranny. Here is a sample of how they are doing it:

    1) This effort to redefine the 1st Amendment to limit our freedom and make sure that no one but their well-controlled “journalists” can report what’s going on;

    2) Immigration Reform – a corrupt political scheme to flood the nation with cheap labor (creating a vast govt-dependent underclass) and manufacture tens of millions of votes out of thin air that will seal the ruling class into power.

    3) Obamacare – the IRS running our healthcare (????), making decisions on who gets healthcare and who doesn’t; how much we have to pay, and knowing every little detail of our lives.

    4) Hundreds of thousands of pages of regulations from Obama’s various departments that are slowly, almost invisibly crushing our liberty and controlling our lives.

    Call now, call often. If you do and you get two or more others to do so and they do the same.., we will change the direction of the nation. Let them know we are on to them and their scheme. Be clear and forceful – don’t ask them for anything, but demand they stop stealing your freedom and liberty.

          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texas_Ranger_Division

          The rangers were founded in 1823, when Stephen F. Austin, father of Texas, employed ten men to act as rangers to protect 600 to 700 newly settled families who arrived in Texas following the Mexican War of Independence. While there is some discussion as to when Austin actually employed men as “rangers”, Texas Ranger lore dates the year of their organization to this event.[6] The Texas Rangers were formally constituted in 1835 and, in November, Robert McAlpin Williamson was chosen to be the first Major of the Texas Rangers. Within two years the Rangers comprised more than 300 men. Following the Texas Revolution and the creation of the Republic of Texas, newly elected presidentMirabeau B. Lamar raised a force of 56 Rangers to fight the Cherokee and the Comanche, partly in retaliation for the support they had given the Mexicans at the Cordova Rebellion against the Republic.[7] The size of the Rangers was increased to 150 by Sam Houston, President of the Republic, in 1841.

    Does anyone not yet fully understand the apprehension of our founders toward those who attain power? Is it clear why they carved in granite our rights, so that wicked vile despots like Idi Amin, Adolph Hitler, Pol Pot, Joe Stalin, Dianne Feinstein, Anthony Wiener, Elliot Spitzer, Obama and all the other contemporary latent mass butchers could be held at bay by an armed citizenry. Our ruling class has held office too long and we are imperil the longer they stay there. The electorate had better wake up before they find themselves under the fat thumbs of these cretins.

        At first blush – now – Weiner’s a pathetic, disgraced pol – BUT he’s still (for now) married to an important Clinton insider and (potentially) could still figure a way back into power.

        He’s not as clownish and diminished as we might think.

    • xknight

      Every right protected in the Bill of Rights was a response to specific actions of the Crown. These protections were enshrined by men who had an understanding of history. They also understood that Great Britain was at the time the most enlightened govt in the world and the state where the people enjoyed the most liberty. If such a govt could produce the transgressions that led to the Revolution surely no govt or govt leaders then and in the future could be expected to always refrain from abuses of their own. Hence the Bill of Rights. Born of experience and based on knowledge of both History and human nature. Finally, by Sen. Feinstein’s definition both Ben Franklin and Tom Paine would not be protected from govt intrusion.

    My concern is that an administration willing to use other government institutions, for example the IRS, for political enforcement might also be willing to “suggest” to some enforcement administrator that a newspaper, media, or other outlet that doesn’t toe the line is “illegitimate.” Certainly a Fox News would qualify as “illegitimate” in this Administration’s eyes. Where does it end? Licensing of media outlets, and revocation for those who “behave irresponsibly” by reporting unfavorably? Just the threat would be enough.

  • teamfrazzled

    The 1st Amendment is not a special privilege. The fact she described it that way tells you right off the bat why she wants government control over who is considered a “real” reporter which would be a violation of the 1st Amendment in the first place! A free press is supposed to be the people’s tool for keeping government in check, not a means for government to control the flow of information to the people. Who we choose to get our information is not ever the business of government. Yet she wants us to believe the 1st Amendment somehow obligates government to control, monitor, regulate and decide for us from whom we will be allowed to get information -HOW DARE SHE! Controlling the flow of information is a documented goal of the left because it is critical for their manipulation of the people and would enlarge their pool of low information voters.

    I propose a better amendment Ms. Feinstein -one that would not only forbid members of Congress from exempting themselves and their families, any elected office holder, any government employee from any law they inflict on the rest of us and forbid the adoption of any law for their own benefit that does not equally apply to the rest of us -but most importantly it would ban career politicians with term limits since career politicians are the one group that has done the single most damage to the nation over all others.

    • OLLPOH ~ #UnBanPaulieWalnuts

      Ohhhhh so True!
      And Mark Levin has written a book called “The Liberty Amendments: that depicts the solution:
      Article 5, […or, on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which, in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purpose, as Part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States, ]
      this is without having to resort to the dreaded v i o l e n c e to take America back from this Leviathan Fascist Communist Tyranny that is worse than the floods of the melting avalanches upon us now.

    As long as the Government decides who gets to have certain rights then it’s ok, is that it? (Kind of like Obamacare.) I always thought the First Amendment needed a lot of clarification.

    It’s always the same story with the Progressive/Communist/Facist/Socialist/Dumbassocrats. Freedom of speech is unlimited for them, but stops for the rest of us when we say anything that they don’t like. The First Amendment is something they would rather ignore if possible.

    Under this law, “real journalists” get protection — from whom? From government. The first amendment already protects them, and all of us, from restrictions on speech. What this law actually does is give government a hammer to discipline journalists (“real” or not) who embarrass government. Regulate, regulate, regulate!

    Screw Feinstein and the horse she rode in on.

    I’m starting the “Bloggers News Service” an entity that disseminates news and information. I invite bloggers everywhere to become a contract “journalist”. You’ll need to accept a penny a year as deferred compensation.

    Just remember, you’ll need to occasionally submit the required “news story” about the mama duck leading her brood across the street, or how hot weather this week in your town is due to global warming.

    Just watch your local TV station newscast or read your local newspaper for “news story” ideas – you know, the kind that “real journalists” cover working for “real news organizations”. Or mimic the professional MSM coverage of Benghazi or Fast & Furious or the IRS harassment of conservatives, the use of guns to defend oneself against crime,…oh, never mind.

    Every American has a right to know what their government is doing, and every American has a right to question them, or write about it, or comment on it any way they want.

Only in the liberal world does freedom of speech mean say anything so long as it doesn’t insult us. And their definition of insult is wide ranging.

Case in point…ABC Nightly News a few days ago: story about Syria that is just a regurgitation of “official” talking points (the kind that have been used to lie Americans in to almost every war in the 20th c.) followed by a story about how “there just isn’t enough finding for more planes to save firefighters in the west”. HMMM? We all know we are indebted in every possible way up to our eyeballs…yet the military/industrial/corp finance/MSM complex demands its pound of flesh. They made no connection to the cost of previous or this potential future war to the lack of money available for planes to help put out these fires despite it being SO PLAINLY OBVIOUS to anyone with 2 brain cells to rub together. This type of contradiction in the “official narrative” is more obvious now that the “memory hole” is gone forever…oh how centralized power relied on that memory hole.

            We aren’t interested in having politicians create a law defining “historian” though…that’s the difference. If so-called “professional” journalists were doing a good job (and not sucking up to authority all the time) there wouldn’t be an issue. They are just pissed because they look bad now that they have competition.

            And other people have a right to do history as well…see, historians don’t get all flustered when someone else wants to write about history. We figure if our work is good enough it will stand on its merits. If someone who doesn’t go to college forever does it better…than good on them.

          • BCisles

            Yea, people can write about history, but that doesnt necessarily make them a historian. I want to protect or help a fellow citizen, but that doesnt make me a policeman and give me the same rights. I like to listen to someones problems, but that doesnt make me a counselor. Im just saying, that there needs to be a basic standards when defining certain professions. Many times you have to graduate from college or pass a certification exam to become recognized in that area. Same goes for journalism. There are ethics that need to be adhered to when reporting the news and must show non bias towards the right or left. You might think the left is biased, and you may have a point to a certain degree, but that needs to be corrected. Now Matt Drudge has no ethics and is completely biased. He links articles that follow his own biased narrative. This is very obvious. Im sorry, but the NYT does a better job of reporting stories without bias than Matt Drudge. When sharing information, it is very important that there are standards and ethics of non bias. Calling Matt Drudge a journalist is very dangerous in my opinion.

            To explain why I don’t agree with you would require a journal article to please my standards…I wish I could agree with you on the NY Times but I don’t. They are failing for a reason and it’s simple market/product/service problems they have at this point in history. All MSM defer to power and authority…I wish it wasn’t the case but it is proven over and over every day. And no “profession” gets to claim special access to rights afforded to everyone under the Constitution…that’s where the argument falls apart. There are libel laws and such that everyone has to follow…what the establishment is trying to do here is put the Genie back in the bottle. They use a “Drudge” or someone else to try and get people to support them so they can regain control over information they had pre-Internet. As the old saying goes, “popular speech doesn’t need to be protected”. Legitimacy is breaking down across the board…most obvious in establishment media, politics…and then our financial system. These are consequences of the 4th communication transformation in communications history (the Internet…speaking, writing, and the printing press were the previous examples). The human world becomes reorganized with each and this is no different. Don’t get caught up in the “left/right” or “Republican/Democratic” identity politics garbage…you know. See things for what they are…here you have a collection of tired, worn-out 20th c. style politicians completely unable (and unwilling) to compete in the new paradigm…so what do they do? They try to use 20th c. strong-man authoritarian tactics to secure the status-quo. The laws will be used against everyone speaking truth to power…Drudge is irrelevant to the real story here.

          • BCisles

            Ok, I understand what you are saying in terms of the internet and how thats effecting new organizations, but that is not my point. My point was regarding information and how it is shared from a journalistic perspective and how we need standards and ethics without bias. Matt Drudge is relevant because he is confused as a journalist though he is not governed by any ethics and does what he wants in terms of the narrative he believes in personally. He then is shaping people based on this bias and I believe this is dangerous. If MSM mediums are biased, I want that to be corrected. The right left paradigm is relevant because that is where people are being shaped in terms of their opinions. Do you not agree there should be standards when sharing information through the media?

          • Libertys_Ghost

            But whereas a Doctor or Lawyer can lose their “license” if they are “unethical” to expected standards, a “professional journalist” doesn’t have and should not have a similar “consequence”. I think the comparison of “journalists” to these other occupations are apples and oranges…if a Doctor screws up I might die. And this is why so many other “professions” don’t need legal definitions…as you noted…like “historians”, “sociologists”, “anthropologists”, etc. They ARE professions…as is a journalist…but there is a reason there isn’t any legal qualifications to be “one”. “News” has the luxury of being corrected and the government and the corporate media have resources to the “inth” degree more than any of their competitors to get “their version” out. If they can’t, that just proves their ineptitude /and/or exposes the lie they are selling. Syria is a great example. The public keeps saying “prove Assad did it” and the MSM and government just keeps showing pictures of dead bodies instead of answering the question. It’s pretty transparent…but they aren’t used to being accountable…like a spoiled child really. So why are they not being believed? Because what they told us was the “facts” for years is now laid bare as lies…over and over and over again. They have no one else to blame but themselves. and their loss of legitimacy in the information market IS their consequence for being “unethical” for so many decades. No laws are needed, you see? They have no one to blame but themselves…but they still don’t want to accept responsibility for the failures of the narratives they produced that have led to the failures of our society in so many ways now. So they want to change the rules.
            If we have a society that is so prone to persuasion differently today than they were before journalism became “professionalized” (early/mid 20th c.) than it begs many questions. Why didn’t society collapse BEFORE J-Schools were invented to “professionalize” the industry and people from all walks of life wrote for publications? Our educational system certainly fails pretty badly if we look at outcomes today because of a lack of competition similar to that the MSM relied on prior to the reach of “alternative” news producers exponentially growing (and thus competing with MSM) with the popular use of the Internet, but even I wouldn’t argue that everyone is so dumb they can’t tell ridiculous news claims from “potentially” real news stories. I only say “potentially” because the MSM is proven wrong daily as well, but their accuracy seems to have a lower standard applied than the standard expected from alternative news…according to these Senators I guess:-) journalism is not an exact science and can’t be one.

            The public didn’t go “Hooorah!” and go along with invading Iraq because they were propagandized by “non-professional” journalists, right? You know I could give you example after example like this too…and I suspect you could too. So what gives? Why are they wanting to give special freedoms to some “news gatherers” rather than others? The simplest answer seems to me to be to keep them in the fold and to create a mechanism to punish those that don’t go along with the “pogram”…oh, I mean “program”:-) I think it’s pretty obvious…but then I am not “left” or “right” or “Republican” or “Democrat” or “liberal” or “conservative” which allows me to only care about facts rather than how I want to feel and how I “hope” the world would be if only the smart people that run everything would have more control:-) HAHA

          • therantinggeek

            Yes, there needs to be some measure of standards, but the principal argument is *how* to define those standards. Personally, I like how “covered person” and “journalism” is defined in H.R. 1962, which I referenced earlier. #mytwocents

          • BCisles

            Yea, people can write about history, but that doesnt necessarily make them a historian. I want to protect or help a fellow citizen, but that doesnt make me a policeman and give me the same rights. I like to listen to someones problems, but that doesnt make me a counselor. Im just saying, that there needs to be a basic standards when defining certain professions. Many times you have to graduate from college or pass a certification exam to become recognized in that area. Same goes for journalism. There are ethics that need to be adhered to when reporting the news and must show non bias towards the right or left.

          • Libertys_Ghost

            We aren’t interested in having politicians create a law defining “historian” though…that’s the difference. If so-called “professional” journalists were doing a good job (and not sucking up to authority all the time) there wouldn’t be an issue. They are just pissed because they look bad now that they have competition.

            And other people have a right to do history as well…see, historians don’t get all flustered when someone else wants to write about history. We figure if our work is good enough it will stand on its merits. If someone who doesn’t go to college forever does it better…than good on them.

            There’s a distinct difference between a textbook definition of journalism and Di-Fi’s idea of “journalism.” The Electronic Frontier Foundation (based in San Francisco of all places) takes a pretty strong stance against Di-Fi’s proposed amendment to S. 987 (“Why Sen.

            No, the definitions listed are plentiful and NOT limited to newspapers or magazines. Here’s the FULL list of definitions of Journalism (without cutting and pasting the parts you like so you can make your point seem valid):

            Full Definition of JOURNALISM
            1
            a : the collection and editing of news for presentation through the media
            b : the public press
            c : an academic study concerned with the collection and editing of news or the management of a news medium
            2
            a : writing designed for publication in a newspaper or magazine
            b : writing characterized by a direct presentation of facts or description of events without an attempt at interpretation
            c : writing designed to appeal to current popular taste or public interest

            Drudge does not work for a magazine or newspaper. However, if you READ definition 1, a, you will not see newspapers or magazines mentioned. It is merely “the collection and editing of news for presentation through the media.” Druge meets this definition.

        • Will Malven

          Hey, Einstein, the Constitution says nothing about “journalism.”

          What it protects is “freedom of speech, or of the press . . .” You will note it says nothing about newspapers, magazines, broadcasting, radio, television, or any other category of media.

          The flyers that our Founding Fathers published, the Federalist Papers, and the protest pamphlets all were intended to be covered.

          The primary purpose of the First Amendment was to ensure that the people, not government, had the right to say what they wished and to write what they wished unimpeded by the government.

          Drudge is an American citizen, blessed with all the rights, protections, and privileges that all citizens have by command of the Constitution.

          • BCisles

            Matt Drudge is free to do as he pleases. He just is no journalist because he is not governed by and standards and ethics. He is biased on a conservative slant. You are acting like she is trying to shut his website down. Thats not what is happening here.

          • Will Malven

            Please provide the name of a single “journalist” in the industry who is not “biased” on a liberal or conservative slant.

            Like all liberals, you live in a dream world. Drudge doesn’t “slant” anything but his headlines and his choice of articles, exactly the same as all news outlets, and far less than most MSM outlets do.

          • BCisles

            It’s whether journalists use a code of conduct to regulate their behavior regardless of personal bias. Both sides should adhere to these principals

        • Zach Smith

          Wouldn’t the actual definition of “journalism” be the activity of writing in a journal (with a quill, presumably)? I don’t know what that could possibly have to do with broadcasting news on radio or television, and the constitution says nothing about protecting radio or television.

          • BCisles

            Ok, tell me specifically how that was against the 2nd amendment. The government has the right to regulate fire arms. Thats why you dont see fully automatic weapons being purchased. THEY ARE REGULATED. Same goes here. Like I said, you just dont like the law and call it unconstitutional based on ignorance, not facts.

          • Will Malven

            It is you who are consumed by ignorance of the Constitution and the intent of our Founding Fathers. The Second Amendment prohibits the federal government from “infringing” on the citizens’ right–inherent and “endowed”–to keep and bear arms. Nowhere does it have a proviso restricting that right.

            Further, if you had ever bothered to read the writings of our Founding Fathers, you would see that it was never considered a conditional right or one that even allows for government restrictions of the rights of law-abiding citizens.

            Madison goes into great depth about the need for the people to be able to muster an armed resistance far superior to any that a standing army could hope to overcome.

            Try reading real, authoritative sources, instead of Democrat/liberal/hoplophobic propaganda.

            The fact that “THEY ARE REGULATED” is completely irrelevant. Slavery was once legal, so what? Alcoholic beverages were once illegal, so what.

            The mere fact that something has been regulated or even that the SCOTUS has ruled something constitutional, doesn’t make it so. History is replete with examples of absurd and unconstitutional laws being upheld and then later reversed in the courts.

            The ignorance, Einstein, lies entirely in your pathetic little bailiwick.

          • BCisles

            You are a lost cause if you don’t think your government can regulate firearms. You are too stupid to waste replying too. You know nothing about law and what this country stands for. Maybe we shouldn’t regulate the nuclear codes either. Go away idiot.

          • Will Malven

            Too funny! I knew you couldn’t support your claims. Assertions of some alleged superior understanding of the law is one of the oldest and lamest excuses you ignorant liberals use when you lack the ability to respond to a conservative’s argument.

            My arguments are grounded in the words of the men who wrote the Constitution, yours you pulled out of your posterior.

            Asserting something to be true, because you say it so went out in about the 5th grade.

          • BCisles

            Umm…You didnt really make a point. Your position is that any regulation on fire arms is unconstitutional which is ludicrous. You have to read how the Supreme Court has interpreted the law. So in your opinion, background checks are unconstitutional because it regulates the 2nd amendment. Freedom of speech is limited as well, which is why child porn is illegal and you cant scream fire in a movie theatre. This is such a simple concept and you fail to grasp it. If the Supreme Court rules something constitutional, then it is constitutional whether you like it or not. Even Scalia has said it is legal to regulate fire arms.

            Your arguments are not grounded in reason or logic and most importantly, understanding that we live in a society and there is something called public safety.

            Here is a ruling in 2008.

            “United States v. Miller, 307 U. S. 174, does not limit the right to keep and bear arms to militia purposes, but rather limits the type of weapon to which the right applies to those used by the militia, i.e., those in common use for lawful purposes. Pp. 47–54.

            2. Like most rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited. It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose: For example, concealed weapons prohibitions have been upheld under the Amendment or state analogues. The Court’s opinion should not be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms.”

    You have to understand from our perspective: speech can be dangerous. Our NGOs all over Europe have enacted laws that criminalize questioning official data about the Holocaust because we believe rumors will spread that it was faked. This in fact could lead to another Holocaust. We WILL get these hate speech laws enacted in America as well….it’s just a matter of time. But first we need your guns, obviously.

    Nowhere in the Constitution is the word “journalism” used. The constitutional protection of the right of “free speech and of the press” is not restricted to those who have a particular vocation, it extends to all citizens equally.

    There are no special rights for certain people ordained by those in Congress. Congress has no power to restrict our inherent, endowed rights. Only by constitutional amendment may those rights be curbed.

    Well it makes sense if you take a look at it from the POV of the administration. Who is a “covered” journalist is 9/10 times in their pocket or their own propaganda service. All others must be controlled and repressed, lest some semblance of truth make it out there. This is up there in the “First Steps to Take While Establishing Tyranny.” I mean we should be so LUCKY that us subjects would be graced by such a generous definition.

    There is an epidemic of megalomania coursing through the Democrat Party.

  • Diane Alden

    This should be known as Goebbels Feinstein protects media puppets aka —- the status quo. I think it was Zbignew Brezinski who said a few months ago that if it were not for the alternative media … the US would already have invaded Syria. I wish Feinstein would GO AWAY .. along with McCain and 90 percent of the US senate who do not believe in truth or freedom… anyway .. slows down their selling us out to the highest bidder or stops them from gutting our freedoms as fast as they would like.

  • Sara Lee

    Feinstein wont be in office much longer….Voters are really pissed at her….

  • jack dobson

    On top of her totalitarian impulses, Feinstein also is a dimwitted soul. Rather than get mad, I just cringed when she whined that if people “knew what I know,” they would support an airstrike on Syria. It was little more than a child bragging about top secret stuff.

    The United States and the world will be a better place when we no longer have to suffer the grotesque visage of this corrupt, stupid, and pathetic slut.

  • Dave In Arizona

    First let’s define who is and who isn’t a senator of the US. Based on Feinstein’s record, she most definitely isn’t.

  • Janet91

    speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to
    assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
    She IS a fascist. Compare Drudge to a local paper that picks up a wire report from AP, Reuters, or anywhere else; they have the right to print that for public consumption. That’s the way it was before the internet, and the rules don’t change just because of the internet.

  • Carl Mertz

    2014 the owner of the USA will define who is a Senator and who is a House of representative member and who is NOT. I have feeling there are many sitting in the Senate who will become “has been Senator’s”. I can also smell impeachment starting to brew in the air.

My wife said it sounded like something from a minaret. I was friggin’ pissed and consider it an insult to 9/11 victims, Veterans, Military and every American. Apparently this has been sanitized in replay, overdubbed or a substitute used as I saw a military figure with a BUGLE playing TAPS. This is not what went out live originally.

    There is a reason why the mainstream media dinosaurs are slowly going down in tar pits. They are nothing more than willing lying and misinformation tools for the state. The internet, which is the greatest communication tool ever invented, has been exposing the mainstream media for the propagandists they really are, and the ‘professional’ journalists are unhappy that they are being scooped and eclipsed by ‘amateur’ bloggers. So in the tradition of all fascists, the pros are busy working to recruit the gun of the state to help them hold on to their remaining dwindling market share.

States are allowed to print their own money, as long as it doesn’t pay for commerce a cross state lines. The economy is set to detonate at any time, there’s NOTHING that will stop that.

Then when crazed tyrants just so happen to come after those she dislikes, she can claim her hands are tied because the law doesn’t protect *those* people. This tactic is so amateur and transparent it’s laughable.

    Why are people like Diane Feinstein such luddites? The new media isn’t controlled from the top down by their fellow travelers like old media is. So, they propose to make a law that says basically that only old media qualifies as “the press” which only means the ability to publish information, thoughts and ideas. Why is it that people like her clang on about the “living constitution” when they want to reinterpret part of it, but refuse to allow common sense updates of the definitions every day items? To them the 2nd amendment only allow the people to carry muskets as part of a militia and the 1st amendment now apparently only protects people who use offset printing presses. I guess when they say “freedom of speech” they really only mean “freedom of speech I agree with”. A pox on Diane Feinstein and all of her ilk.

    The Democrats regard the media as essential to enforce the laws that have passed. The problem with liberals is that they have a static view of “progress”. They believe that the laws they pass today are appropriate for the rest of eternity. The world, people, and politics change…no matter what mind games the Democrats play . With the internet, the genie is out of the bottle, as average people have direct access to “the news”. Just as Diane Feinstein cannot make herself 23 again, neither can she turn back the clock to the days of Walter Cronkite.

        Many of Matt’s links redirect people to sites that are part of the conservative propaganda machine. All great lies have some truth. Paul Joseph Goebbels would be jealous of the machine the conservative elite has created.

        Leo Strauss, the father of neoconservatism believe a conservative base could be control using noble lies based on religion, nationalism and fear. He was a atheist born in Germany.

        The reason this propaganda machine harps on conservatives being victims is to get you to believe other lies that confirm you are victims. People believe lies they have something in them people wish to believe.

    “During the 1920’s and 1930’s, the Big Three automakers undertook an extensive program of multinational expansion…By the mid-1930’s, these three American companies owned automotive subsidiaries throughout Europe and the Far East; many of their largest facilities were located in the politically sensitive nations of Germany, Poland, Rumania, Austria, Hungary, Latvia, and Japan…Due to their concentrated economic power over motor vehicle production in both Allied and Axis territories, the Big Three inevitably became major factors in the preparations and progress of the war. In Germany, for example, General Motors and Ford became an integral part of the Nazi war efforts. GM’s plants in Germany built thousands of bomber and jet fighter propulsion systems for the Luftwaffe at the same time that its American plants produced aircraft engines for the U.S. Army Air Corps….

    Ford was also active in Nazi Germany’s prewar preparations. In 1938, for instance, it opened a truck assembly plant in Berlin whose “real purpose,” according to U.S. Army Intelligence, was producing “troop transport-type” vehicles for the Wehrmacht. That year Ford’s chief executive received the Nazi German Eagle (first class)….

    The outbreak of war in September 1939 resulted inevitably in the full conversion by GM and Ford of their Axis plants to the production of military aircraft and trucks…. On the ground, GM and Ford subsidiaries built nearly 90 percent of the armored “mule” 3-ton half-trucks and more than 70 percent of the Reich’s medium and heavy-duty trucks. These vehicles, according to American intelligence reports, served as “the backbone of the German Army transportation system.”….”

  • John Brittingham

    In 1798, not so long after the adoption of the Constitution, the governing Federalist Party attempted to stifle criticism by means of the Alien and Sedition Acts. (It was notable that the Sedition Act made criticism of Congress, and of the President, a crime, but not criticism of the Vice-President. Jefferson, a non-Federalist, was Vice-President at the time the Act was passed.) These restrictions on freedom of the press proved very unpopular in the end and worked against the Federalists, leading to the party’s eventual demise. Thomas Jefferson was among those who opposed the Acts, and did so vehemently, and he was elected President in the election of 1800. Jefferson then pardoned most of those convicted under the Acts. He made it a principle not to ask what they had done, but only whether they had been charged under the Acts. In his first Inaugural Address in 1801 he reiterated his longstanding commitment to freedom of speech and of the press: “If there be any among us who would wish to dissolve this Union or to change its republican form, let them stand undisturbed as monuments of the safety with which error of opinion may be tolerated where reason is left free to combat it.”

    It would make my day if I woke up tomorrow and read Feinstein’s obituary authored by a “pretend journalist”. Actually it would make my day if I woke up and read her obituary …. period.

    This crazy old bat needs to be removed from office. We can’t keep re-electing these idiots over and over. They start thinking they are Kings and they make all the rules.

    • Whatsallthisthen

      Unfortunately the reason they’ve acted this way is purely the fault of the Boehner, McConnell,McCain,Cantor,Rove, type Eunuchs.

        She must bear her teeth at them as she leers at their groins.

  • Whatsallthisthen

    The only reason she proposes anything along this line is free speech censorship. Too many voices out there not agreeing with her and her ilk. They’ll name the bill “The Free Speech Protection Act” or some other silly name that has nothing to do with it.

    The liberal way of thinking is you must think exactly like them or they will silence you. Sounds exactly what Hitler did.

    • Mark Caldwell

      Progressivism is ‘authoritarian collectivism’ with a different name. They are petty tyrants, who enlarge the supremacy of the state and it’s monopoly on force to subjugate those who do not agree with them or submit to their power lust.

        And

        • Mark Caldwell

          And, work to tear down the protections provided by a Constitutional Republic in order to replace it with a Socialist Democracy, a platform for a despotic totalitarian state.

        • Dmacwired

          That is the nastiest looking wretch I’ve ever seen.
          That inner b – (itch) can’t help but shine through.

          Ick……now I am going to have nightmares for sure.

    this is the same person who had her head handed to her with logic and Constitutional facts by Ted Cruz.

  • dwpittelli

    People who gather and report news for “an entity or service that disseminates news and information” should, and almost certainly would, include bloggers, at least ones who write for a blog that regularly cover news, such as Drudge, Breitbart, Pajama Media, etc. (Of course, the interpretation would eventually be up to the Supreme Court.)

      I’m thinking that ALL those so-called “journalists” that EVER worked in their PJ’s need their credentials pulled if this comes to pass.

  • Kenneth G Maiden

    Drudge is 1000% right. Feinstein is a effing FASCIST rat Lib. It would be my dream to stand before her and say so, with spittle a flying.

    • $4119491

      Can’t we spit first and yell at her after. Hate to have it dribble while I’m trying to tell her what I REALLY think of her existence on the planet.

    • Dmacwired

      Spit? I was thinking about replacing the P with a H and let it fly.

  • $4119491

    Hey Feiny Heiny. The fact is YOU HAVE NO STANDING under the Constitution to “define” who IS and IS NOT a “journalist”. Not to mention, that word isn’t even FOUND in the CONSTITUTION. It’s called FREEDOM OF THE PRESS YOU WITCH.

  • Dmacwired

    I don’t suppose the Senate is trying to do an end run on the constitution and bill of rights is it? What possible reason could they have to blaze such a trail into basic freedoms of speech? Could it be they fear freedom of speech as much as law abiding gun owners? Are they up to their eyeballs in corruption and loosing sleep at night as they contemplate what might happen if some blogger they can’t control gets the goods on them and tells the world? Obviously they aren’t worried about those so called legitimate journalist because they have those folks on a short leash but those blasted bloggers could ruin everything. Talk about jeopardy and these worthless sots haven’t figured out how to confiscate all the guns yet.
    Perhaps we should all send them a anti -sympathy card and wish them ill.

    Don’t you love the (D) politicos from CA? The ones in the fed elected offices are all in their 70’s, what is their appeal to the youth vote? California’s cabal of politico’s are from the jurassic era, I am not knocking senior citizens (getting close to being one myself) but I don’t know how Boxer, Pelosi, Feinstein have any appeal to the younger set.
    Feinstein – go home and enjoy your ill gotten gain.

    • Justin Case

      I have always wanted to ask Pelosi what kind of Brother Moses was.

  • Dmacwired

    I heard Feinstein eats fresh raw bull testicles every morning to set the tone for her day.

  • Justin Case

    Hitler would admire Feinstein, she is just like him.
