Dear Editor,

LOOK OVER THERE! NO, don’t look over here - there might be another unconstitutional and criminal act going on. The regime is going to put monitors in American news organization newsrooms. Reading from RedState.com, Matthew Clark has the best summary of the details. The regime “is poised to place government monitors in newsrooms across the country in an absurdly draconian attempt to intimidate and control the media. Before you dismiss this assertion as utterly preposterous … this bombshell of an accusation comes from an actual FCC Commissioner.” The commissioner is Ajit Pai, and this commissioner “reveals a brand new Obama Administration program that he fears could be used in ‘pressuring media organizations into covering certain stories.’”

The media is supposed to be the fourth branch of government. The founders designed our system so that the press would be a failsafe to ensure that even the most tyrannical governments would be held accountable. Why would President Obama do this when he already has the media in his pocket? They (the media) are not upset at any offensive thing the regime is doing: attacking the Tea Party, wrongly using the IRS, covering up Benghazi, Fast and Furious, NOTHING. They don’t find any of these things the regime is doing worthy of reporting. They are not at all concerned with the power the regime is amassing.

There are those who ask, does Obama know what these people in his regime are doing? What do you mean, does Obama know? These people are doing things that they know he wants done. He puts his like-minded people in power positions. Do you really think that all of these extremists are having to sneak things past Obama to get them done?

The United States is ranked only 46th out of 180 countries in the world regarding press freedom. Since 2012, the U.S. has dropped 12 spots on the press freedom rankings. This is in a country that once was considered the most free in the world. We now rank worse than Ghana and Namibia, and only one spot above Haiti. That’s right - the country that gave the world the first amendment and the very principle of free press is now ranked just above Haiti. I believe there is no doubt that the Obama administration’s policies are to blame. President Obama’s attempt to monitor the free press is so un-American and unconstitutional that it is sickening!

The United States has never had a more tyrannical and overreaching president! He has absolutely no respect for the law or the Constitution and he can only be classified as a criminal!

Have YOU contacted your representative and senator or others on committees in Washington and DEMANDED that he/she do something to stop this run-away executive branch? Or is it too late? This year’s election in November will tell.

Way before the term politically correct there was a term freedom of speech – and every American had it!
