Posted on 08/21/2011 6:04:49 PM PDT by Halfmanhalfamazing
On June 2, 2011, Judicial Watch released documents that show the Obama FCCs collusion with a radical leftist organization to seize control over the Internet. This investigation caught the eye of congressional leaders, and now it appears a congressional probe of the matter is in the offing.
The documents we uncovered show that the Obama FCC was deeply involved in discussions with the radical leftist organization Free Press in the run up to the December 2010 FCC vote. How deep? Free Press reached out to the FCC to invite FCC Commissioner Michael Copps to write an op-ed for the Albuquerque Journal in advance of a November 16 hearing on Internet Access. Free Press helped coordinate a speakers list for FCC "Internet workshops" which was a "Who's Who" of liberal activists.
There were also a series of back-and-forth emails to set up meetings between Copps and former Free Press President John Silver just before the net neutrality vote:
Allow me to introduce you to the people who seem to be running the FCCs Internet policies:
Robert McChesny, former editor of the socialist magazine Monthly Review, is the co-founder and president of Free Press. Kim Gandy, the Chairman of the Free Press Board of Directors, served as the President of the leftist National Organization for Women from 2001-2009. Craig Aaron, Free Presss President and CEO, formerly worked as managing editor of the socialist tabloid In These Times. Free Press is financially supported by George Soros Open Society Institute and other hard-left groups such as the Ford Foundation and Democracy Alliance.
That's right, George Soros is your net neutrality.
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Libtards think they’re immune. They will lose all their freedoms if 0 stays in office and Soros is allowed to continue his agenda.
Free stuff isn’t worth your freedom.
>> and all I hear is crickets from the Libtards!
Because they’re assholes.
the quicker that the F.C.C. and the E.P.A. are done away with, the better for us all’ The original reason for the FCC was to regulate Ma Bell......she’s gone!!!
It looks like you and I agree on this. But I’m curious........
Who invented “net neutrality”?
thanks again for an important ping
