With respect to the two words “general welfare,” I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators.
I just posted about how Elon Musk Is Saving Twitter, since one of the larger purveyors of Fake News, CBS had suspended their use of the platform last Friday. I, obviously, should have added “… or not.”
Yeah, approximately 48 hours after “leaving” Twitter, they were right back at it, to my frustration and Mr. Musk’s amusement.
I really should have known that, like all good things, this wouldn’t last.
We now, as of Friday, November 19, 2022, have empirical evidence that Elon Musk is saving Twitter and greatly reducing the use of the social media platform for spread misinformation/disinformation to the world’s public. Apparently CBS has “suspended” its Twitter use. The Democrat propaganda outlet has indefinitely put a hold posting new tweets in the wake of Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter and his subsequent cessation of censoring voices that run contrary to the Lamestream Media’s comfort.
It is thought that other media outlets which purport to be journalism will do the same in the coming days, weeks, or months. And that, Ladies and Gentlemen, would go a long way towards saving Twitter from continuing to be the Orwellian, Social Justice Safe Space the ex or soon to be ex staff turned it into over the years.
So, much to the chagrin of Liberals, Progressives, and other crybullies, Musk is saving Twitter.
The three monkeys of the lamestream media: ABC, CBS, and NBC are a far cry from Mizaru, Kikazaru, and Iwazaru – the three wise monkey’s of the famous sanzaru.
See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Report No Evil
They’re willful failure to report upon the Benghazi tragedy with any diligence and their refusal to ask Obama anything resembling a tough question about either his regime’s murderous betrayal of our Consulate staff or their ongoing lies about the situation is a cruel mockery of both wisdom and journalism.
Oops! I used “monkey” and “Obama” in the same article. Cue the worthless libtard cries of racism. 😆
They have become no less a regime-owned propaganda corps than the Fars News Agency the mouthpiece of Iran’s Ayatollahs.
It’s fairly safe to assume that, if it regards their boy, Obama, nothing they say, show, or print is the truth in anything close to entirety. All these monkeys are doing is throwing poo and it’s time to either put them back in their cages or put them down as we would any members of an unwanted invasive species.
I’m fairly sure that most people in the Civilized World have heard that CBS reporter Lara Logan was brutally beaten and gang raped by 200 or so of the insurrectionists in Cairo’s Tahrir Square on Friday February 11, 2011.
That’s in the Civilized World. The Muslim World knows little, if anything, about it because they don’t consider such events to be newsworthy.
If one goes to the Liberals’ new darling “news outlet,” Al-Jazeera English and search for any mention of “Lara Logan“, the non-results are stark proof that her vicious attack was not considered something that should be reported upon even to their growing Western audience. Completely unsurprisingly, their original, Arabic site also has no mention of Lara Logan.
In point of fact, if one searches for “rape” on Al-Jazeera English’s website, one will find many articles about the crime but none of them involve rape committed by Arabs. Their their original, Arabic site seems to be similar, though it includes articles about rapes of female political prisoners within Iran which are tellingly not found on Al-Jazeera English.
The attack upon and brutalization, defilement, and pollution of an attractive, blond-haired, blue-eyed, Western, female reporter by a reeking mob of slavering Muslim apes isn’t news within the Muslim World unless it’s such that they can gloat and crow about it.
Additionally, since the gang rape couldn’t be pinned on Mubarek’s agents or supporters, it didn’t fit the “message” that Al Jazeera’s anti-American propaganda machine, Al-Jazeera English seeks to poison the Civilized World with, they were never going to comment upon it.
So we in the Civilized World should not be shocked by Al-Jazeera’s refusal to cover Lara Logan’s beating and gang rape. Her’s was reportedly not the only sexual assault upon a Western woman by Egyptian males in Tahrir Square that day and such gang rapes, nor are such attacks unusual during larger, emotional gatherings of Muslims in Egypt.
Rape, pedophilia, and disgustingly barbaric levels of abuse of women and girls are all part and parcel of Islam and the Muslim World, hence they’re no more newsworthy there than going to the local market is within the Civilized World so there’s no rational or sane reason to expect any media outlet that caters to Muslims to report upon it.
This holds true for the original, Arabic version of Al-Jazeera which caters to an Arab Muslim audience. Al-Jazeera English is another story and they should be dealt with differently.
The seven dirty words are seven words in the English language that were considered highly inappropriate and unsuitable for broadcast on the public airwaves – television or radio – in the United States. Comedian George Carlin first listed them in 1972 in his monologue “Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television”. The words were avoided in scripted material, and”bleeped out” in those rare instances in which they were used.
That sort of censorship was true then in 1972, and it remained largely true throughout the intervening years, but it looks like it has now changed, possibly dramatically.
On Tuesday, July 13, 2010 a federal appellate court threw out the FCC’s rules on indecent speech. This is a big win for broadcasters that could lead to a new Supreme Court test of the government’s power to control what is said on television and radio. For now, the court’s ruling will likely end the commission’s campaign to keep the airwaves clean of even spontaneous vulgarisms with the threat of punitively large fines.
A federal appeals court threw out the FCC’s rules on indecent speech Tuesday, in a big win for broadcasters that could lead to a new Supreme Court test of the government’s power to control what is said on television and radio.
A three-judge panel of the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York said the Federal Communications Commission’s indecency policies violate the First Amendment and are “unconstitutionally vague, creating a chilling effect that goes far beyond the fleeting expletives at issue here.”
The decision doesn’t mean broadcast TV and radio shows will now be littered with profanity, because advertisers and viewers would likely complain. But the ruling will likely end, for now, the commission’s campaign to cleanse the airwaves of even spontaneous vulgarisms with the threat of hefty fines.
“I think the notion that broadcasters are going to be dropping f-bombs in prime time is ludicrous,” said Dennis Wharton, a spokesman for the National Association of Broadcasters. “If we wanted to do that we could do that from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.,” when FCC indecency standards don’t apply.
Ashby Jones and Joe White discuss the ruling by a federal appeals court that struck down the FCC’s indecency policy. The court said the agency’s efforts to punish broadcasters for allowing “fleeting” expletives was “unconstitutionally vague.”
The judges found that the agency’s decision to sanction broadcasters’ airing of one-time or “fleeting” expletives is unconstitutional, and suggested the FCC’s broader indecency enforcement efforts are unconstitutional as well.
Fox along with other broadcasters sued the FCC in 2006 after the agency said the networks had violated indecency rules when airing “un-bleeped” profanities of celebrities during live televised events and levied heavy fines and penalties against them. Since the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York affirmed the broadcasters’ lawsuit President Obama’s FCC will have to take this the US Supreme Court if they wish to continue continue to police the language used in broadcast media as they have been doing.
