A sampling of the major news stories today merely prove we are now living under the very tyranny about which Orwell warned and about which stalwart defenders of liberty such as Ayn Rand, Barry Goldwater, M. Stanton Evans, and Whitaker Chambers kept an ever-watchful eye.
Here are but a few troubling examples:
**The FCC and the FTC are now planning a government takeover of the news industry, complete with a tax on conservative radio and Internet websites in order to subsidize liberal media outlets that are losing revenue to the point of bankruptcy. This would effectively silence conservatives and give the mouthpieces of the Obama regime full control of the news. Does anyone care that Hitler and Stalin did the very same thing?
**CBS News contributor Nancy Giles told Tea Party organizer Dana Loesch to 'shut up' and for controllers in the booth to 'turn off her microphone.'
**Leftwing news sites that are favored by the regime, such as HuffPo, The Nation, and liberal Alan Colmes of Fox News used a bogus, fraudulent video produced by the ultra-Leftwing think tank 'Think Progress' to 'prove' racism in the Tea Party. As it turns out, the whole thing was a complete fabrication.
