The Federal Election Commission (FEC) is trying to shut down news organizations that have any type of foreign ownership which would remove organizations like Fox News from covering elections. This is more than unbelievable, it’s unconstitutional.
These liberals are pulling out all the stops to end Donald Trump’s patriotic movement. I don’t see how they can get away with this much longer, do you? I will be glad when November 8th gets here. Americans are going to go to the polls and tear the Democratic Party to shreds.
This is rich. Foreign donations to politicians are not allowed either but the FEC sure looks away when Democrats receive them.
From Washington Examiner:
In a last-minute submission Wednesday, a top Democrat on the evenly split FEC proposed that the Thursday meeting of the commission begin the process to prohibit companies with foreign ownership as small as 5 percent “from funding expenditures, independent expenditures, or electioneering communications.”
Democratic Commissioner Ellen Weintraub said in her submission, “Given everything we have learned this year, it blinks reality to suggest that that there is no risk of foreign nationals taking advantage of current loopholes to intercede invisibly in American elections. This is a risk no member of the Federal Election Commission should be willing to tolerate.”
Under Weintraub’s proposal, entities that reach her foreign ownership target would conceivably be banned from advocating for a candidate’s election or defeat.
Several media giants have at least 5 percent foreign ownership, some with as much as 25 percent. Included is News Corp, which owns Fox, the New York Post and the Wall Street Journal. The New York Times also has foreign ownership, as do many politically active firms like Ben & Jerry’s.
That prohibition could include Fox commentator Sean Hannity or Wall Street Journal editorial. And, according to one analysis, because foreign nationals also are prohibited from making electioneering communications, those media would not even be able to mention Donald Trump or Hillary Rodham Clinton, even if just covering them.
The FEC isn’t concerned about the Democrats buying the election with foreign money but are dead set against letting conservative news organizations with as little as 5 percent foreign ownership talk about the election!
Hillary isn’t even in the office yet and the Democrats are after the First Amendment and we know the second is definitely going down if they managed to steal another election!
