To support “net neutrality”or to not support it can be very confusing with all the contrary information floating around. Even if you pay attention and stay on top of things – it’s complicated and the pros and cons cannot be explained in a couple of paragraphs thoroughly to the point where you can take a side..
The vote on the new Internet regulations is scheduled for today (Thursday). The FCC’s two Republican commissioners have asked Federal Communications Commission chairman Tom Wheeler to delay the vote to allow more time for review… but – wait a minute:
Geroge Soros, together with far-left Ford Foundation has spent $196 million trying to get the thing passed? It just became very simple:
I’m STRONGLY against it.
That’s right, the left-wing, Nazi-collaborator billionaire socialist, Soros, has dumped nearly $200,000,000 into pushing Obama’s so-called ‘net neutrality’ regulations over the years.
The money has gone to funding liberal think tanks and supporting pro-net neutrality individuals – five of whom have ascended to key positions at the White House and the Federal Communications Commision (FCC).
Soros once again has his evil tentacles in the Obama Administration to push for more and more regulation and federal control of The Internet. It makes it difficult not to be against this, since George Soros does not have Americans best interests in mind on every other aspect of American political and cultural issue.
The Internet is the last hope for conservatives to balance out the mainstream media. In fact, you’ll only find stories such as this one online – on a conservative site – because the major media does not want you to know about it. They are lapdogs for President Obama’s push for Federal, and eventual United Nations’ control over what you can and can’t read or see on the World Wide Web. It does not bode well for Constitutional conservatives or American’s in general.
I know what you’re thinking: You’re thinking, ‘no problem – the Republicans have the majority in the House and Senate now and they’ll stop it’…
Wrong again, McConnell-Breath.
With the Federal Communications Commission poised Thursday to impose unprecedented regulations on the Internet, congressional Republicans have quietly backed down on a plan to block the looming FCC rules ahead of time with their own legislation.
Republican lawmakers blamed Obama administration officials, who they say have interfered in bipartisan talks to produce legislation that would ban some of the onerous practices the FCC seeks to stop, but with far less government regulation than the pending agency rules proposed.
“Waaaaaaaahhhh, Obama’s too mean, he’s too smart … we only have 2/3 rds of government, what are..” oh, shut up.
Central to the FCC’s proposed rules is a plan to reclassify the Internet as a public utility, a move that would introduce an unprecedented layer of government regulation to the broadband Internet industry. President Obama has pushed for the reclassification, which he said is needed to ensure a fair and open Internet. But when was the last time he told the truth? Everything out of his mouth is a lie and this is no exception.
LISTEN TO THE GOP EXCUSE: These are really a bunch of spineless bastards..
Senate Commerce Committee Chairman John Thune, R-S.D., said of stopping Obama and Soros that even though the GOP holds majorities in both chambers, it makes little sense to take up legislation now because without some Democratic cooperation, the bill would fail in the Senate or if it passes, Obama would veto it. “We are not going to get a signed bill that doesn’t have Democratic support..”
I’ve said it before and I’m going to keep saying it until they shut this website down:
In order to defeat Obama, Soros and the Maoist wannabes in charge, we must first defeat the GOP establishment.
This vote today will be the ObamaCare of the Internet.
Meanwhile, two prominent House committee chairs are “deeply disappointed” in Federal Communications Commission chairman Tom Wheeler for refusing to testify before Congress as “the future of the Internet is at stake.”
Wheeler’s refusal to go before the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday comes on the eve of the FCC’s vote on new Internet regulations pertaining to net neutrality.
The committee’s chairman, Representative Jason Chaffetz (R., Utah), and Energy and Commerce Committee chairman Fred Upton (R., Mich.) criticized Wheeler and the administration for lacking transparency on the issue. “
So long as the chairman continues to insist on secrecy, we will continue calling for more transparency and accountability at the commission,” Chaffetz and Upton said in a statement. “Chairman Wheeler and the FCC are not above Congress.”
‘The closer we get to the FCC rubber-stamping President Obama’s Internet grab, the more disturbing it becomes. Consumers, innovators, and job creators all stand to lose from this misguided approach.”
