The Federal Communications Commission voted 3-2 in favor Chairman Tom Wheeler’s net neutrality plan today, giving itself the the broadest authority to regulate ISPs that has ever been attempted.
One of the dissenting votes came from Republican Ajit Pai, who stated earlier this month that the regulations are ‘worse than I imagined'.
Of course, he can't legally tell us how bad it is now that it's been sealed before the vote. Another ‘gotta pass it to see what's in it' kinda thing.
But, knowing King Obama, who pretty much already has dictatorial control over all media including the web, there will be plenty of opportunity in those pages to render sites inactive that are Conservative or support the Constitution in any way, most likely under the pretense of being ‘hate speech' ‘racist' of ‘domestic terrorists', etc.
Forbes stated last month that Obama was creating a cyber police state, and these new regulations represent his intended micromanagement of the Internet to be carried out by his minions. What he can't label criminal can be relegated into a cyber black hole, which is where we expect right-leaning Truth and Action to end up.
The next step will be to turn over regulations to the UN, mark my words.
It was nice writing for you all…
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 vote on the new Internet regulations is scheduled for Thursday. The FCC’s two Republican commissioners have asked Wheeler to delay the vote to allow more time for review. The changes would allow the commission to regulate the Internet like a public utility, setting new standards that require the provision of equal access to all online content.
