Two hundred and fifty years ago, American colonists who criticized King George III would find themselves arrested and thrown into prison.  Sometimes they lost their businesses, homes and families because of their sedition to the crown.  The colonists had no freedom of speech to criticize the king, parliament or even a British citizen.

When James Madison and George Mason penned the Bill of Rights, there was a reason why they made the freedom of speech part of the First Amendment.  It was the right to speak freely and openly criticize the government that was a right they fought for.  They knew that in order to have a republic, not a democracy, the freedom of speech was a vital importance to its success.  (In a democracy, people don’t need the right for free speech as the people elect their own dictators.)

POLL: Does Congress need to revive the House Committee on Un-American activities?

Over recent years, we have seen our freedom of speech being challenged and diminished by the whining’s of a liberal minority.  Now, we are on the verge of losing our First Amendment right to freedom of speech.

Massachusetts Senator Edward Markey (D) and New York Representative Hakeem Jeffries (D) have introduced the Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014.  The opening of the bill reads:

“To require the National Telecommunications and Information Administration to update a report on the role of telecommunications, including the Internet, in the commission of hate crimes.”

“The report required under subsection (a) shall— “

‘‘(1) analyze information on the use of telecommunications, including the Internet, broadcast  television and radio, cable television, public access television, commercial mobile services, and other electronic media, to advocate and encourage violent acts and the commission of crimes of hate, as de-scribed in the Hate Crime Statistics Act (28 U.S.C. 534 note);”

  • Judge not less you be judged: From the birth of John The Baptist to spread the message of the MESSIAH is coming, to the birth of Jesus Christ, mankind, governments, Kings, Emperors have attempted to silence people about Jesus Christ, God, The Holy Bible and freedom of preaching and praying.

    One said if it is not real it will fizzle out. Well it did not fizzle out and created a firestorm and a religious movement the world has never seen.

    Jesus was placed on the cross to shut his mouth about the Kingdom Of God and following 14-1500 years after his death and resurrection, man is still attempting to shut the mouths of Christians and has never accomplished that feat and never will.

    My advice to the government, the Senators / the Congress: Lay off the Christians and the country of Israel. Christians even though we may reside on earth for a while or maybe a few years until the arrival of Jesus Christ, those that desire to harm, kill and destroy the Christians of this world must remember, we are not a part of this world. Killing the earthly body means nothing to Christians, we have a second death where God will save our soul and grant us Eternal Life in his Kingdom.

    Those and the earthly world system that judged the Savior of the world, Jesus Christ will now have the opportunity to stand in front of the Great White Throne of God and be judged by him for all of your killings and murders that have been committed against Gods People.

    Time is short, prepare to meet your Creator and your Judge. All of the earth and the evil ones to include the corrupted government systems and churches to include all leaders will be judged by God and most of the earth is not friendly to God but are his enemies. Those that do not obey and bow to God Almighty will be cast into HELL for eternity. JUDGMENT DAY IS COMING FOR THE WORLD AND ALL OF MANKIND.---Prepare yourselves for his Wrath and judgment that will be poured out upon the earth and mankind.

  • I have studied what is happening  for many years I can go into all the detail on how everything lines up with the Bible and will be happy to explain it to anyone who wants to understand  but I think anyone with any real Bible knowledge can see we are truly in the last days . and this is the generation that Revaluation will be fulfilled  . so there is very little we can do to stop what is coming but we can be ready by doing what the Bible says to do in this time ... Stand in the Holy place and seek him .  all you see happening has been foretold  but we were born for this generation  to be a wittiness to the world .   if i can suggest anything is stay close to the Lord and do what ever he says to do , there is not a ,lot of time left

    The Silent scream
    A thousand screams of warning echo in my head
    For what is on the marrow yet no one hears
    The knowledge of the truth that can not be seen by the blind
    and the voice of reason that will not be heard by the deaf

    It is a terrible thing to know what is about to happen
    yet no one can hear your voice

    Some think I'm mad for pointing out what they can not see
    but they try to be nice all the same
    But yet inside I do know the truth ,
    and once the truth is known it can not be taken away

    The living are dead ,they just do not know it yet,
    but soon they will
    For now they sleep in the comfort of ignorance,
    leading them to the doorway of their own destruction

    So many times i want to just shake them and scream ....WAKE UP
    but they can not hear me
    They have became nullified to the truth because of all the lies around them ,
    and the complacency that has overtaken them

    If I did not have The Rock to stand on I too would be swept away,
    in the current and desensitized by the Evil that floods our mind gates
    50000 times a day
    It is only the truth keeps me strong
    to be able to stand against what is even now overtaking the people

    Only days now left before the wave hits
    A day , A week, A month ,A year ,,,,
    It really doesn't matter the signs are all there
    It is just a matter of time now

    But I can not help wondering ,if somewhere deep inside,
    Do the people even know that their lives are about to change ?

  • "They do want to replace our foundational religion with chaos.  A system based upon the individuals spirit and not that of the group.  This has a biologically selfish appeal, but the entire concept of government is by and for the people.  We the people have stood by and watched this transpire, but I believe most of the blame falls on the media.  So now we have a system where the children summon their inner demons at will, attacking the elderly at will and destroying their lives and often their relationships with their family, we have developed a narcissistic people whose credo is it's all about me." -- The truth hurts, and to avoid the pain intellectual midgets like Senator Markey propose "solutions" like this idiotic bill.  In doing so he brings into clear focus the fact that the average 8th grader (even today) has more working knowledge of the Constitution and government than he does.

    My increasing feelings of antipathy toward the media aside, although several decades old and rapidly approaching psychopathic levels of intensity at times, I still must differ with your assessment that the media should bear most of the blame for the abuses of power we are witnessing. You mentioned above that statement that our entire system of (self) government is one that is "of, by and for the people" (viz). That is so very true and applicable here. "The price of Liberty is eternal vigilance" and, as a people, we have become fat and happy, are being dumbed down generation by generation which we are ALLOWING to happen and it is well established that you CANNOT HAVE FREEDOM WITHOUT PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY.

    Government never accepts responsibility for doing anything wrong let alone acknowledges there is a problem with anything it has enacted. Unlike government, no business could survive once it identified a "policy" problem then enacted changes while keeping the first policy in place. Government has a penchant for doing just that. Also unlike private industry, only government has built in budget increases from year to year for its various departments under the "Baseline Budgeting" process, corruption exists everywhere,  abuses of the people's Constitutional rights are daily events, violations of Constitutional 'Separation of Powers' provisions are routine, today's Justice Department is more accurately characterized as the "INJUSTICE department and the IRS is STILL an agency to be feared. The people - NOT the PRESS - have let all these things continue with only mild protest, little pressure and less interest. Even the fact that the press isn't doing its job as one of the guardians of freedom goes unopposed by the people. Are we lazy, or stupid, or have simply forgotten how precious our freedoms are?

    Whatever the answer or combination of answers may be, the fault falls squarely on our shoulders and until we accept responsibility for our nations degradation - individually and collectively - we will never develop the vigilance necessary to keep it from happening again once we've gotten it back.

  • The Freedom of Speech is the #1 on the Bill of Rights. Obama has already signed an Executive Order that speaking out against "certain politicians" allows a person to be, shall we say, disappeared, by the White House enforcers, the SS (secret service). This bill introduced and amended over time, so the nation as a whole would not catch on to it, is intended to do away with our Freedom of Speech. This Right is God given to every American so we can shoot our mouths off, no matter how inane or wise our speech may be. These two are part of a plot to try and do away with the backbone of this country. If Patriots cannot communicate then the gov't will be able to do as they please. Remember these words: One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter? The gov't already considers veterans as Potential Terrorists.
  • I still say what I want and when I want.  Just to catch a phrase, I don't care to use that word unless I am using it in the right context, which is the definition given in the dictionary, an 'IGNORANT' person!!!  If someone doesn't care for what I am saying then they can move away from where I am standing.  No employer has told me yet that I can't say the things I say, and no one has approached me.  These aren't just 'Ammendment' rights these are GOD given rights, and I refuse to give them up!!!!

  • Don't bet the farm on not loosing freedom of speech. We have already lost it!

  • Freedom of speech? You have already lost that! When people, and some here, helped have a funeralfor the word nigger? YOU HELPED KILL FREEDOM OF SPEACH! Right or wrong to use it? That is up to the person saying it. And there are other words that have been banned. But the so called do gooders have had their way. And now you had best watch what you say! If you say anything bad about mohammid? One senator has even brought up the idea of DEATH for doing so! And he has the backing of Jareer Abeed in the Whitehouse! So watch what you say!
