Ladies and Gentlemen:
The article below by Pamela Geller, is another instance or example of the furtherance of the dictatorial spirit the Obama administration exudes. It is RAW FREEDOM being attacked. Freedom and liberty, as inspired principles of this nation, have definite spiritual connections to the unalienable rights spoken of in our founding documents. Unalienable rights are God given rights. No man can take away what God has freely given to this nation and each individual. NO MAN.
While I do not know some of the particulars that God has in store for those who perpetuate these evil attacks on freedom and liberty, I can tell you this: Everyone who loves freedom and liberty must stand up for it. It must be fought for every day. As we do our part, in this regard, I am confident God will step in when freedom loving people can do no more. We must press forward with a steadfastness and truth that can deter no one. God’s hand will help those who help themselves.
Do not give up, just re-commit. In the end, we shall claim victory because the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob shall be by our side as long as we remain a righteous people.

Last week several important battles were fought in Obama’s war on free speech.
The Obama White House routinely bars news media from meetings with foreign leaders and other events, then releases its own photos of those events. But the remnants of what once was a free press in America are meekly fighting back.
The Associated Press reported last week, “The presidents of the American Society of Newspaper Editors and the Associated Press Media Editors have urged their members to stop using White House handout photos and video, saying they amount to propaganda.”
This is quite stunning coming from the very left-of-center Obama-loving mainstream media. But what they are not doing is reporting on these totalitarian tactics. Our freedoms are being crushed without a shot fired or a single New York Times front-page story.
Obama may be governing like some Third-World tin-pot dictator, but America is (was?) the world’s superpower, and the implications of these totalitarian moves are seismic. The AP is leading the charge to get access back, but it is still shining his shoes. Look at how it is reporting the story:
“The Associated Press is seeking to broaden independent news coverage of the White House under an administration that is hypersensitive about its image and which frequently bars the press from events involving President Barack Obama.” It isn’t seeking to “broaden coverage of the Obama administration”; it’s simply trying to get access to a closed and secretive administration.
Not only is Obama shutting out the press, but the Obama White House is rewriting the Freedom of Information Act, or FOIA, to suppress the release of politically sensitive documents. Obama rewrote the Freedom of Information Act without telling the rest of America. And AP also reported that “in a year of intense public interest over the National Security Agency’s surveillance programs, the government cited national security to withhold information a record 8,496 times – a 57 percent increase over a year earlier and more than double Obama’s first year, when it cited that reason 3,658 times.”
Imagine if a Republican ever attempted such a vicious and totalitarian power grab. Obama is the anti-freedom president. He showed that yet again by endangering today’s hallmark of the freedom of speech, the Internet, making it the target of the next offensive in his war on freedom.
The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that “the Obama administration made the surprise announcement it will relinquish its oversight of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, or Icann, which assigns and maintains domain names and Web addresses for the Internet. Russia, China and other authoritarian governments have already been working to redesign the Internet more to their liking, and now they will no doubt leap to fill the power vacuum caused by America’s unilateral retreat.”
