Obama Critical of FCC Plan to Speed Up Media Review

From Dow Jones, October 22, 2007
By Corey Boles

Democratic Presidential hopeful Sen. Barack Obama, D- Ill., lambasted Federal Communications Commission Chairman Kevin Martin for trying to rush through changes to the agency’s media-ownership rules.

In a letter sent Monday to Martin, Obama called the accelerated timeline proposed by the chairman “irresponsible,” saying the FCC had failed to take steps to encourage greater involvement in media ownership by minority and local interest groups.

“I object to the agency moving forward to allow greater consolidation in the media market without first fully understanding how that would limit opportunities for minority, small business, and women-owned firms,” said Obama.

According to FCC officials, Martin has circulated plans to wind up the FCC’s long-running review of its media ownership rules by mid-December.

A detailed plan for reform hasn’t been released yet. However, according to the timeline released to the other members of the commission, Martin plans to present his plan by mid-November and hold a vote on it a month later.

Obama is the second Democratic presidential contender to voice concern about the timeline. Last week, Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn., said he opposed the notion of an accelerated review of the rules and “would do everything in his power to stop this proposal.”

The fear by the lawmakers is that a Martin plan could allow greater consolidation in ownership of radio and television stations, making it even more difficult for minority and women’s groups to achieve greater representation in these media.

In a statement released Monday, Rep. John Dingell, D-Mich., the chairman of the powerful House Commerce Committee, urged the FCC not to rush to judgment in the proceeding.

“It is my sincere hope that the Commission will allow reasonable time for evaluation of the public input received on its media ownership studies and all of its public hearings before finalizing rules,” said Dingell.

The Democratic members of the FCC have long been concerned about the under- representation of these groups in media ownership.

Martin, too, has said in the past that he is not pleased with the amount of diversity currently on the airwaves. There has been some suggestion by analysts that his ultimate plan for reform of the complicated media-ownership rules won’t be as drastic as those put forward by his predecessor as chairman, Michael Powell, also a Republican.

Powell’s plan was subsequently rejected by an Appeals Court that told him he hadn’t done enough to justify his attempt to lift many of the media-ownership caps.

One of the rules that could be changed is that which currently prohibits the same company from owning a radio or television station and newspaper in the same market.

Martin has repeatedly expressed support for scrapping this rule. If it were removed, the sale of Tribune Co. (TRB) to real-estate magnate Sam Zell could quickly be finalized. Tribune Co. currently has several waivers from the cross- ownership rule, which would need to be renewed by the FCC in order for the sale to Zell to be approved.

This Way Out Of Hell

I am closing my blog. I realize that the angst is only serving to create more hell. It is not the way.

I have come full circle in my anger and rage, and seeing more clearly. There is a way out. It isn’t found in fighting the darkness.  It is found in understanding, forgiveness, faith and hope. I have said many mean things here out of fear. I take them all back. I don’t want it in the ethers. I am sorry for forgetting who I am.  It was not the best of me. I can’t control the world, nor do I wish to. I can control me. Maybe this sharing I wrote today, which was inspired by smarter peeps than I, will help you too. This place is temporary passage. Its not for keeps. Until we stop fighting and direct our faith and hope in the power of GRACE, we will not see an end to hell. Bless you all.

peace out. 

THIS WAY OUT OF HELL

The earth, water, and air of this earth has been dutifully imprinted with our living collective agreement and memory. Not just the memory of humans, but the memories of livestock, plants, trees, fish, and the memory of planets and stars as they reflect upon this dimension. The memory of touch, smiles and bliss. The memories of rage and thrown stones. Every living thing, seen and unseen, that is merged energetically with the earth, in any way, has a say in the way life has been and the way life will be. Imagine the breath and scope of this idea. Once you absorb this concept, your life experience will change.

All ideas, thoughts, words and actions are welcome in our Global Archive, which I will call The Global Aura. No thought, word or action is ever turned away. We Creators are loved unconditionally. It is this gift of unconditional that allows for this journey. Within this Grand Universal Library are smaller sections we built to keep us safe from experience and identity we did not want, for a host of reasons. But, Creation is patient. For every slot we have chosen to place ourselves, there is a slot waiting with our name on it. That is because it is against our true nature to section ourselves off from other sections. When we have reached maturity, we will have opened to every offering without disgust or fear. Our eyes will be wise. As we grow more and more into the truth of ourselves, seeing more broadly will not concern us, for the Observer does not disturb, but merely accepts what Is. This acceptance is true Knowledge. Know Ledge. Some would say Know the L edge. There is much to know about that right angle, but I will save that for another time.

Our human records can be located by our DNA, but its not just physical DNA that identifies us. We are also defined, while out on this rope, by the planets, the stars, the moon, and the Galaxy itself.  We are defined by our etheric memory in the unseen, in the unproven, in the mystical.  We are defined by the footprints we leave behind and the footprints we didn’t leave behind. We are also defined by our Global footprint, the earth, the seas, the wind. You will come to understand that when you purchase (adopt) things with money, time, or energy, you automatically align with it’s manifest blueprint. This has consequences, and most of them you are unaware of. When we buy an item made in a sweatshop in China, or we eat the meat of a cow who has been tortured, we become part of the memory of that living being. Until you choose otherwise, you will always inherit the effects of that memory. There is far more to our definition than our bone and blood. The physical archive of life tells us one thing, but the truth of our multifaceted being tells us far more. Its the *far more* that is of importance now.

If you will consider anything more deeply on this day, let it be this: The oceans, rivers, lakes and streams are sponges, dutifully soaking up all thoughts and feelings, and emitting those back to us through the earth, where all things are minimized to dust, where we grow our food, and in the air we breathe and the water we drink.  The earth does not discriminate. Water is not prejudiced. The wind blows through starving countries on its way to wealthy nations. Fear, guilt, shame and hatred live in a Global Aura that is shared by all, even is you have chosen not to pay attention to it. Remedy is not resistance, denial and separation. Remedy is Love and true Knowledge, otherwise known as Authentic Light. This Light is not coming from elsewhere. It is within, and can be tapped when we choose to live authentically right here right now, at your current address. The elements await our very next thought. We share the elements, and the elements remember.

  

No organ in our human body has a separate existence from another organ in the body. The organs are interdependent. When any organ is defective, the vital chain of harmony is broken and disease results. For example, In maxillary sinusitis, the pus in the sinus causes pressure on the gums there by spreading the bacteria and causing gum and tooth infection, which in turn can impact the heart and other organs in the body. It is a chain reaction. Earth is a chain reaction. Humans are chain reactions. The physical Universe is a chain reaction. Everything is dependent on everything else. You cannot escape this truth. Now is the time to understand it, so you can be a Creator with Knowledge.

Our thoughts and feelings have created the experience of this earth. Water obeys our wish. We wish for war and hate, and we will experience it. It is done. When enough energy wishes for love and peace – it is done. But, what is important to recognize is that we are all merged with one another through the elements of which we are part of.  We do not live in a house divided. That might indicate you have a separate choice you can make for yourself only, which impacts you only. In the most immature of understanding, this appears to be the case, but in the broader picture, this is not true. You would not be here now, in this picture, were it not for your identification with and your signature in the Earth, Water and Air. The memory of you chooses to take form in the very realm where your memory wishes to expand. Your memory is its own reference point. Your future will look like your past unless you awaken to what memory is and exercise your power to Create from Authentic Light.  

The memories of life on earth are not divisible in truth. It is only when you take a physical apparatus and take a specific portion of that infinite memory and make it your own, that it appears separate from the rest. When you empty your cup back into the ocean it becomes one with it. The same thing happens when you have a thought. That thought you just had, which is uniquely recycled, is contained for now, to a degree, but write it down and share it, and it will pool with the collective consciousness and become one with the Global  Aura. Back into the ocean of Creation that is the All.

All living things on planet earth are merged with this time and space archive, even as newborn babies. We are merged with the earth’s water, even as Light Workers, seekers, mystics, rapists, and murderers, and those unconcerned with their origin. The Global Aura is a memory, for better or worse.  The earth, the water and the air has recorded where we have been, and what we thought about where we have been. These same elements are poised to record where we are going and how we are feeling as we are going there. But, knowing this has enormous power to teach us better ways. The hard part is over. Now, we know. We know The Global Aura is fluid and humans have a monumental responsibility to recognize the oneness of this Creation, and act accordingly.

All of time and space and beyond is within you. All dimensions are within. Not out there. That which you are truly done looking at, with eyes of authentic love, will fade away from your memory and take its rightful place in a time and space that no longer has any power to hurt you. But, you need never leave this plane (per se) to get to another. You need only willingness to access the highest memory of what you are. Memory is a living and breathing entity that is readily available to you anytime you wish to address it in order to heal it, or exacerbate it. This memory is MIND. That is what the mind is. Memory.

The good news is that memories are never set in stone. The very second you decide something different, then share it and act to imprint that new idea, your memories are transformed. When memories are transformed for one, they are transformed for all. The power of one person to desire true alignment with true knowledge can undo the power of a hundred sacred texts and revelations scripted from fear. This is not just some lofty, new age concept. This is the truth of the matter.

Our DNA; our bone, is a reliable recording on one level, and one that Science looks at with increasing accuracy to reveal the past, the present and the future. It would serve the earth, the Multi Verse and all of life itself, if we looked at DNA more broadly, and from a deeper spiritual perspective, especially as it relates to the unfolding events to come.

Nothing that has ever been thought, written, or acted upon, in time, or beyond, is outside the power of Love.

While humans have been taught to follow along with the wiser ones, the time has come for individual humans to step back from the movie, draw a deep breath, see outside the picture frame, call back their identity and own their inheritance. It is not too late to dismiss that which you don’t agree with. We think it takes physical people, places and things to create. It is not so. First there is thought and desire. We are Divine Beings Of Light, with true, organic Power to impact The Global Aura, starting here and now. Did we come all this way to violently perish, based on some religious theme, without experiencing the Power of our Mind? Or, did we come all this way to learn the power of personal responsibility and the impact of our choices on all living things? Did we come all this way to see the tiny wantings and scripts of fear, so that we may mature and grow into magnificence? Was it our original plan to pass through, without clinging to the token ornaments, on our way to Truth?

The end times is really nothing more than an idea we observed and agreed to, by virtue of a written word, handed down through the ages of time from some source with a name. Millions of people agreed that this source with a name… was thee source and thee true source. What if that source was not of Authentic Light? What if that source was of a lost realm. Is it possible? Look at your life.

For all the humans that look upon the prophesies of the End Times as nothing more than an idea, there are tens of thousands more who look upon it as truth. To look upon any idea as true, especially ideas in written form, is to experience it as truth. That is the point of Creation. Think it, create it, experience it. Mass agreement has strength, but strength built on the idea of illusion has no real power. We don’t see evidence of that because we are impatient and use our human eyes to measure our progress, when the unseen realms of Light, and the earth, the water, the air, are holding and growing our promise even as our desire wanes with the tides of life. We have become complacent and hopeless. We turn our heads to the ugly and the shameful and hope our inattentiveness will make it go away. New books teach us to turn away and focus on joy. But, we turn away without really seeing that it cannot hurt us. Until we move on from knowing, we have not moved on. That is why things do yet look different.

We have had many new teachings flow down from the mad realms of lost souls who meet up with our minds in moments of fear, and work hard to convince us, guide us to join them. If you knew how many humans on planet earth, and beyond, are under the spells of these guides, you would be amazed. But, this need not be. We only become vulnerable when we forget our own true identity and adopt the memory of those who have gone before and use their powers to build more and more greed, hatred and fear. We have the power within us, right now, to settle into quiet, call this up and give it into the hands of Authentic Light for transformation. All we need do is own our Divinity and our Power, then act accordingly.

Many assume that these scripts are “Things That Must Come To Pass.” As science is now showing us, nothing is carved in stone. The Multi Verse is fluid and it is non local. Disagree with the written word, from the courageous mind, and you will be one more authentic light impacting The Global Aura, the Etheric DNA, and allowing for the rise of the collective Authentic Phoenix from the ashes of ignorance and suppression. We are at the fork in the road right now. But, your choice will need to be fueled with a willingness to believe in yourself and your true Power. You will only learn this through thought, word and action of your own. You will not learn it loitering about this plane looking for the answers outside yourself. Retire all Gurus to the shade of nearby Dogwoods. You are now in charge of your belief system, entirely. You already know the truth. All that is needed is your choice to live and breathe it, at all cost. You have a guide within you. You can call that God. You can call it Jesus, Buddha, Mohammed, Krishna, Burt Reynolds. Or, you can call it your Highest Self. Or, you can call it nothing at all, for that which is timeless needs no name. It really doesn’t matter as long as you understand that this guide is Love and it is within.

How does one transform a memory called the End Times or any other such idea? Choose, with your heart and mind, in recognition that this is not deserving of the perfect being that you are. You did not come to create a violent ending. You came to create and experience timeless Light and all that it holds. You came to Create. What are you creating? You decide this within, then live your life as if you believe it. That is how it is undone. The wind, water and earth take on new memory through loving thought, word and action. Violence and hatred are not undone by exposing it, monitoring it, and voting against it. Authentic Love is a Tsunami of Light that dispels the darkness organically. You have no worries. Your only task is to sing, dance, paint, play and share your joy with others. You will be asked to awaken to your own role in this Global Play. You will have some change to make given what you now know. But, pay no mind to the man behind the curtain. He will only show himself to you when you give him your power and belief. Create a new Oz.

You will now choose to align with this sharing or not. To the degree you align in thought/belief, and then action, is to the degree your life experience will be transformed, and The Global Aura will be impacted. If you are confused, read this again. Ask for help in understanding. Be observant and patient. The truth loves to unfold in the eyes of the willing. For those of you already in awareness; the change is upon us. Your Light is working. We know what is possible. And so it is.
