The latest developments with the FCC and Net Neutrality prove that we are heading directly for the death of Free Speech. The FCC is going to govern the internet and there appears to be no stopping it. Countless times we the people have been warned about this and here it is the death of our constitution, real news, and the American way of life.
The US has been set apart from other countries because of our freedoms, people of this once great nation fought and died for our freedoms. The time is of the essence, America you are about to be grounded by big daddy government.
At the end of this month, the FCC will vote to make the internet a ‘utility’ so they can govern the use of it. “Rumored since Barack Obama gained the presidency, and now coming to its ultimate, Big Government conclusion. The days of the once free market Internet are all but over. By the end of this month, at the strong urging of the Obama White House, the FCC will vote to classify the Internet as a “public utility”, thus giving the federal government absolute authority over its use.”
Just recently Facebook brought about the idea to censor Alternative News Stories and many will see that this is the ultimate goal, because the alternative news has been the reason their agenda has not fulfilled yet. However now: “The Obama administration’s reasoning are the common phrases of “safety”, and “equality”, and “free”. The use of such words should give everyone serious pause because history has proven that this White House says one thing publicly while it so often means the exact opposite privately. What the FCC regulations will mean first and foremost, is CONTROL of the Internet by the federal government under the guise of “net neutrality”. Members of Congress are complaining that the ruling is yet another example of the administration bypassing the legislative branch. Something as important to the day-to-day lives of almost all Americans should be dealt with via the political body most representative of that population. The Obama White House disagrees, opting to have the will of the president make the final determination. The House and Senate have both suggested simple laws could be passed as a bi-partisan effort to protect Internet consumer rights without handing the entire industry over to federal government authorities.”-MORE
This is a serious blow and it must be stopped.
This is the latest from the mouth of the control freak himself Tom Wheeler “After more than a decade of debate and a record-setting proceeding that attracted nearly 4 million public comments, the time to settle the Net Neutrality question has arrived. This week, I will circulate to the members of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) proposed new rules to preserve the internet as an open platform for innovation and free expression. This proposal is rooted in long-standing regulatory principles, marketplace experience, and public input received over the last several months. Broadband network operators have an understandable motivation to manage their network to maximize their business interests. But their actions may not always be optimal for network users. The Congress gave the FCC broad authority to update its rules to reflect changes in technology and marketplace behavior in a way that protects consumers. Over the years, the Commission has used this authority to the public’s great benefit.” –MORE
