Net Neutrality...:

FCC: You Won't Know What's In Net Neutrality Until We Force It Upon You

By Douglas V. Gibbs

The power grab is on, and the Obama Executive Branch will keep it all under wraps until it is too late for you to protest against it.  Such has been the tendency of the Obama White House for six years, but now the brazen tyranny is being pranced in front of us as if the hard left minions of President Obama are daring us to make a peep about it.

Republican FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai has revealed in various media interviews that the regulations against Americans through Net Neutrality are provided in a 332 page internet regulation proposal that he has not been allowed to make available to the public.  Pai says the provisions in the regulations being proposed are a "monumental shift toward government control of how the internet works." According to Pai, the proposed regulations "micromanages virtually every aspect of how the internet operates (through the internet conduct rule), it opens the door in billions of dollars of new taxes (through fees based on the reclassification of the internet as a utility) on broadband that consumers are going to have to pay, it will lead to slower broadband speeds, it opens the door to trial lawyers filing class actions across the country, litigation isn't usually not the best way to ensure innovation, and there are a whole host of harms that are going to happen."

Tom Wheeler, the Democrat that is the FCC chairman, has not only refused to allow the public to see the 332 pages of proposed regulations, but has now even refused to testify before Congress, claiming the secrecy is necessary because “the future of the Internet is at stake.” The 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 that are planned on Thursday.

The lack of transparency exists for simply one reason: because Wheeler, and the minions of the Obama Executive Branch, know that the provisions are unconstitutional, that they are acting in defiance to a court decision, and that the voting public and Republican members of Congress would disapprove of the tyrannical attack against online free speech.  Wheeler, with his refusal to reveal the regulatory control contained in the 332 pages of regulations is essentially telling us the same thing Nancy Pelosi said about the Affordable Care Act.  "We'll have to become subject to the new regulations to find out what's in them."

With three Democrats and two Republicans on the Federal Communications Commission, one would think the passage of the new regulatory rules would be a lock for the liberal left progressives, but commissioner Mignon Clyburn, one of the Democrats on the commission, has requested changes to the new rules that would narrow the FCC's authority over the internet.  Clyburn's request may be a sign that the Democrat may be willing to break ranks and vote against the new rules with the two Republicans.

Behind the 332 pages is the proposal by President Barack Obama to treat the internet like a utility, which would unconstitutionally seize federal power to regulate the Internet like a public utility, establishing federal rules of control, restriction, and limits on innovation that have, up until now, have allowed online technology to prosper and blossom in ways that only an unfettered free market is capable of.

Let me guess the answer to the power grab:

"In other words, you don't have enough votes for an override!! afro "


No

If you like your freedom of speech, you will be able to keep your freedom of speech. Period.


If you like your internet, you will be able to keep your internet. Period.


No one will take them away. No matter what.

Only since the Obama Administration has taken over have THEY passed bills (Obamacare) or in this case the FCC makes a regulation, WITHOUT KNOWING WHAT IS IN THEM (IT).
That is absolutely criminal.

I am thrilled that the FCC is not handing the internet over to Republican hacks and their corporate buddies.  Wink

Why won't they release the rules?!?!

It's been less than 24 hours since the Federal Communications Commission voted to approve strict new regulations on Internet providers, but that's the leading question coming from its critics.

Conservatives are demanding that the FCC release a full copy of the regulations that it's planning to impose on companies such as Comcast and Verizon — and taking the agency's silence as evidence of a cover-up. Readers of an FCC blog post  have suspiciously mused that "these new regulations should have been published by now."
Washington Post


Why won't the FCC publish the rules they've made?

It's interesting to watch this. It's so typical. The Dems. love the gov to take control of everything, while we conservatives just say, leave us alone. You can tell who is for and who is against easily.

Comrades for Net Neutrality...

No specifics when they are called for?

The powers behind the FCC’s muscling of the Internet Today’s vote by a bitterly divided Federal Communications Commission that the Internet should be regulated as a public utility is the culmination of a decade-long battle by the Left.

Using money from George Soros and liberal foundations that totaled at least $196 million, radical activists finally succeeded in ramming through “net neutrality,” or the idea that all data should be transmitted equally over the Internet. The final push involved unprecedented political pressure exerted by the Obama White House on FCC chairman Tom Wheeler, head of an ostensibly independent regulatory body.

“Net neutrality’s goal is to empower the federal government to ration and apportion Internet bandwidth as it sees fit, and to thereby control the Internet’s content,”

And the new rules are where?

He of course has no idea. He just likes it because it is part of the agenda.
