Terry Eastlake, Executive Editor of the Weekly Standard, has written an important article revealing nefarious liberal schemes to undercut U.S. Supreme Court decisions relating to elections and our fundamental First Amendment freedom of speech rights.
The article, Democrats vs. Free Speech is a must read for conservative Americans desiring insight into the seemingly endless machinations of the left.
As an example of such suppression tactics, this CNS news report provides the background to the manipulative efforts of John McCain and his then Democrat senate ally Russ Feingold (WI) in their attempt to overturn First Amendment protections and empower incumbent politicians with the clout to prohibit public criticism —- virtually an incumbent protection racket. This specific case involved their attempt to silence Wisconsin Right to Life.
In 2008 the U.S. Supreme Court soundly rejected the assault on free speech imposed by the deceptively named “Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002” —- widely known as the McCain-Feingold Act.
In November 2010, Wisconsin voters rose up and ejected Feingold in favor of conservative Ron Johnson. Arizona voters were not as successful in their senate race. The alarmed McCain, unpopular with Constitution-based voters, dumped over $30 million into his effort against conservative former U.S. Rep. JD Hayworth. McCain has since been censured by state and county GOP officers and both he and his underling Jeff Flake have staggering low poll numbers —- the worst in the nation.
