“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.”

From Banning Books to Banning Blogs
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2518087/posts
http://reason.com/archives/2010/05/18/from-banning-books-to-banning

Two snippets:

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]
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2518091/posts

“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
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2516189/posts

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
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2515316/posts

Kagan: “Americans are more likely to speak of a golden past than of a golden future, of capitalism’s glories than of socialism’s greatness.”

Bottom Line: Kagan could be the deciding vote to resurrect the Kelo ‘Justices’ and end free speech.

Soros and other leftists indoctrinated against free speech:

Inside the Brain of Soros [his inspiration — Karl Popper]
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2511282/posts?page=1
http://joytiz.com/2010/soros-idol-suppress-disagreement-by-force
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.

FCC Official Says He’s Not Carrying Out ‘Secret Plot Funded by George Soros to Get Rid of....’
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2408072/posts
(CNSNews.com) – Mark Lloyd, the chief diversity officer and associate counsel at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), says he is not carrying out a “secret plot funded by George Soros” aimed at getting rid of conservative talk-show hosts Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck.
