DISCLOSE Act Passes House Vote 219-206

Well our Congress has taken the first step to limit free speech going into an election year by passing H.R. 5175.  The vote represents a total disregard for the 1st amendment of our Constitution by making a law abridging free speech.  The only organizations exempt from the bill is the NRA and unions.  The law will take effect 30 days after passage.  It could take years before it finds its way to the SCOTUS for a ruling even though it flies in the face of the recent SCOTUS ruling in Citizens United v FEC.

Listen to Mark Levin’s and free speech expert Cleta Mitchell’s take on the passage of the bill and what it means for all of us here.

Democrat Hank Johnson reveals the real reason behind passing the DISCLOSE Act.

Now in the 55 seconds it took for him to announce that the real reason behind the bill is so Republicans can’t get elected he misrepresented the truth about contributions from foreign owned companies, BP, and Republicans being supported by big business.

So as you can see this is nothing more than a sham of a bill designed to rig an election by limiting political speech.  I believe they know this law is unconstitutional, but the truth is they simply don’t care.  You see it’s all about power.  It’s all about one political party’s desire to do whatever it takes to retain their hold on power.  They could care less about their oath to support and defend the Constitution because they are intoxicated with power.

You can read my previous post on the DISCLOSE Act here.

This goes beyond Republicans or Democrats.  It goes beyond our political disagreements.  You see this bill doesn’t differentiate between conservative or liberal, it limits the right to free speech across all ideological lines.  It will impact all of us while it attempts to manipulate our elections.  This is absolutely outrageous!  We must act now.  Regardless of your political affiliation, call, write, or email your Senator and tell them to protect free speech.  This is bigger than both parties.  We must preserve our right to have civil discourse on matters of a political nature.  We must also make every effort, regardless of the political party to vote these elected officials out of office that are attempting to steal our free speech via this bill.  My representative Earl Pomeroy, voted to limit our free speech, so I will make every effort to limit his time left in Washington by spreading the word about his vote so that in November he is soundly defeated.

If we don’t hold this line, if we fall back, we will lose the Republic.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Where does it end if we don’t stand up now and defend our Constitution…tyranny?

Liberty forever, freedom for all!

    With such a catchy and misleading name, most people don't even know what the DISCLOSE act is.

    I'm ticked at the NRA for folding to this nonsense the same week they were begging me for money to pay off my lifetime membership.

    This is just another step the radicals are taking to ensure that they can never be voted out.

    That guy is a real person? He looks and talks like he came from an SNL skit. I too am not happy with the NRA right now.

    I'm sure Charlton Heston is rolling over in his grave…

    Kristin you are so right. Most people don't even have clue what this is all about. All they hear is big business supports Republicans and Democrats need to level the playing field. Too bad people can't see what they are really doing is leveling our Constitution.

    The NRA forgot that the 1st and 2nd amendments are intrinsically linked.

  • John Carey June 25, 2010 at 9:12 PM

    I'm sure he is BO. If he was still alive, ny guess is that he would probably want to slap some sense into the organization.

    This is typical Democrat/"Progressive" rhetoric. They come up with an euphemism that will sound populist, and then pass something that has everything to do with control. The thing is, this will be defeated in court, just as the last one was. But, it will take years to get to the SCOTUS. The damage they can do in that time does not need to be stated.

    I am sooo ticked at the NRA for their caving in, supporting the DISCLOSE ACT, and pandering their way to be excluded from this act. Your right. All These Libs care about is power. If they could literally shred the Constitution they would do it in a heartbeat. This is unconsitutional. This must be stopped!

  • John Carey June 25, 2010 at 11:11 PM

    I'm not so sure Matt. The court is starting to be infiltrated by leftist ideologues. I agree that there should be no doubt that this little gem is unconstitutional, however I can't help but be a bit concerned.

  • John Carey June 25, 2010 at 11:18 PM

    It's ALL about power Teresa. They want to hold on to the power they have and right now the Constitution is nothing more than a hindrance.

  • Ron Russell June 26, 2010 at 3:07 PM

    Those in power never, I repeat never concern themselves with what is constitutional when they pass a law that helps them get elected. This is true of most on the right and left, but it remains true that those on the right generally support constitutional values more than those on the left. I've little use for most in Congress and would be pleased to see every single one lose their re-election bids without exception. Now that would send a message. Campaign laws make me sick because both sides are always jockening for advantage. As for rulings by those bastards on the SCOTUS, I have never had respect for that bunch and expect little justice from them. They are just as crooked as those in Congress and we are stuck with them until they kick the bucket! Government—give me as little as possible!!!

    Well said Ron as always.
