Obamas Regulatory Czar Pushes Creepy Plan for Legally Controlling Internet Information
Please Dont Wake the Sleeping Bureaucrat
“Proving that the elves of Washington never sleep, the FCC moved to defy the DC Court of Appeals, which last month ruled that the FCC lacks the authority to impose net neutrality on internet providers like Comcast.”
Astroturfed Net Neutrality Letter Still Shrouded in Mystery [breitbart]
“ ... pro-net neutrality letter supposedly written by Representative Jay Inslee (D-WA). ... In other words, they refuse to make the document public.” [snip]
Net Neutrality: A Tax on the Internet
From Banning Books to Banning Blogs
The Obama administration has announced plans to regulate the Internet through the Federal Communications Commission, extending its authority over broadband providers to police web traffic, enforcing net neutrality. [snip]
The bill, however, would radically redefine how the FEC regulates political commentary. A section of the DISCLOSE Act would exempt traditional media outlets from coordination regulations, but the exemption does not include bloggers, only a communication appearing in a news story, commentary, or editorial distributed through the facilities of any broadcasting station, newspaper, magazine or other periodical publication [snip]
Leave Them Tubes Alone [Townhall.com ^ | May 21, 2010 | David Harsanyi]
“In a 2001 interview (one that only recently has gone viral and caused a brouhaha), Cass Sunstein, now the nation’s regulatory czar, is overheard advocating for government to insist all websites offer opposing viewpoints — or, in other words, a “Fairness” Doctrine for the Web.”
[Sunstein added that they should be willing to mandate speech regulation. He later backed out because the internet was more complicated than he first thought. Others have not — one being justice nominee, Kagan the Wacko. Next about her.]
Kagan and Sunstein Aim to Censor Free Speech: Web, Books, Radio
Just to give an idea of what kind of speech Kagan would favor, the silent screams of 90% born babies are due to her:
Kagan Helped Craft Clinton Strategy for Blocking Partial-Birth Abortion Ban
Kagan: Americans are more likely to speak of a golden past than of a golden future, of capitalisms glories than of socialisms greatness.

Inside the Brain of Soros [his inspiration Karl Popper]
The great mentor of Soros was Karl Popper:
Popper argued that humans have only two possible destinies: one was to live in a closed society in which everyone was forced to believe the same thing. The other would be an open society free of nationalisms and tribal wars. [Snip]
The goal: a closed society [elites ruling the peons]. If pro-peon arguments sound silly, great let them keep yammering. But if the pro-peons get too persuasive, Popper believes in using force to silence them.

Shalom, and thanks.
Glad to help. Free Speech or Death!
