About Me

My photo
A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

The ability to silence all MSM broadcasts, what could go wrong?

This just seems like a bad idea: Feds Will Temporarily Cut Off All TV and Radio Broadcasts on Nov. 9

No, I don't believe we'll see a massive "Night of the Long Knives" scenario where the current Administration wipes out all opposition. I think it'll go as planned and advertised with no problems. Everything will go just fine.

I just don't like a central control for so much of our news sources. Yes, the MSM is so far left it isn't funny. But they ARE available to put out needed information in the event of natural disasters, acts of terrorism, etc. A central "kill switch" that will enable some nogoodnik to take out a major part of our national communications capability is a case of carrying all the eggs in one basket.

Just my paranoid opinion.

This is a totally bad and asinine idea, and it should not be allowed. What is the purpose for this?

Stuff like this is all the more reason why we have to develop our own communications systems and media.

They've had this authority for a long time, they just haven't used it. But the ability to shut down the airwaves, which are technically the property of the public, through the Gov., is one thing.

But the FCC attempts to regulate the 'net are another--the infrastructure is privately owned, and the Federal courts have snubbed the FCC on this a couple of times, but they keep trying.

The regime wants to control communications,because they actually perceive the press as biased to the right. Progressives define anything that disagrees with them as hate speech, stupid or false. A progressive gov in control of the communications systems--especially the 'net, means no communications.

MRG, you hit the nail on the head.

Subvet said...

scotju, I'm with ya on that!

Subvet said...

IR, you're right about them having this authority. It still makes me uneasy, no matter WHO might be running the nation.

And yep, putting the progressives in charge with the ability to kill all news outlets is an extremely BAD idea.

I'm not nervous about it. Yet. But I agree with you that a central point of control just makes it that much easier to create a Federal Bureau of Propaganda should the system degrade much further.
