Internet Censorship Coming

The lamestream media told you:

The Internet guarantees an uncontrolled flow of information without editorial changes which, though we generally don't like our loss of control, we recognize does provide the public with a valuable alternative source of information to the majestic truth we provide.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Personal emails, websites and blogs escaped tight political-based control by a 4 to 2 party-line vote of the FEC back in 2002 -- with a Republican legislature in control. In a court case soon afterwards, however, U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly held the commission's feet to the fire, saying, "The commission's exclusion of Internet communications from the coordinated communications regulation severely undermines," the goals of McCain-Feingold. Those goals are the suppression of free speech concerning elections through complex and expensive federal regulations and spending limits. Failure to comply (and it takes a team to do so) brings crushing fines and jail time.

Anyone who thinks the Internet is the salvation for political thought -- with Hillary "Gatekeeper" Clinton coming into power along with teams of phony-fairness-doctrine statists -- had better wake up and smell the coffee.
