Obama Dictated Internet Takeover To FCC – Chairman REFUSES To Testify Or Answer Questions Before Vote

ObamaCare-for-Internet

FCC Chair refuses to answer questions before internet takeover vote as we learn Obama himself dictated to the FCC his plans for federal takeover after the November election.

This is how third-world dictatorships operate.

After the shellacking the Democrat party was handed this past November, His Heinous Barrack Hussein Obama goes to the FCC – an ‘independent’ agency and hands them secret plans he demands they implement in order to nationalize and take over the internet.  Under the false guise of ‘net neutrality’ two Republicans on the committee blew the whistle and warned that this is ‘ObamaCare for the internet’ – intended to ultimately restrict content and access to news and information.

Written in secret, kept secret and passed into “law” before ANY of us know what ‘rules’ will be imposed – this is how a dictatorship operates.  And America willingly puts up with it with little more than a whimper.

The Republicans run like sissies from daring to confront and stop this lawlessness.  When they ordered FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler to testify before a Congressional oversight committee today, BEFORE the takeover tomorrow, Wheeler defiantly refused to do so – and the Republicans on the committee were indignant enough to simply state without emotion that they are “deeply disappointed”.

“Deeply disappointed”?????  How about getting the Sergeant-At -Arms to make an arrest for contempt of Congress?  How about the House and Senate demand hearings before the FCC is allowed to make ‘law”?  How about the House DEFUND the FCC entirely until they comply with the demand that they let the American people study these Obama-drafted plans before they make them policy????

But no – the GOP is a surrender-monkey party that is more content to go along with the dictatorship because they think they will keep a seat at Obama’s table than stand up to oppose unConstitutional and lawless dictatorial decrees that strip up of our liberties.  The most we will get is a shrug of the shoulder and a sigh of “disappointed” from the lips of a completely neutered and totally complicit Republican party.

The permissible and free Internet as we knew it ends tomorrow.  You will not feel it right away, but in time the pain will become perhaps more pronounced than your health care costs.  Keep watching your bill go up in the coming months as the ISP giants repackage their services to comply with these new secret plans and maximize their income in other ways.  If you read or write blogs like this one – in a year – it is possible they will no longer exist due to FEC campaign laws being applied to any political discourse.  The federal Beast will then run and control the totality of the internet, limiting access, content and speed, while the cost will skyrocket beyond the reach of most, and all the so-called opposition party can muster is ‘deeply disappointed’????

We are so screwed.  We will be on our own to resist and defy this tyranny.  It’s well past lock and load time.

FCC Committee

FCC Chair Refuses to Testify before Congress ahead of Net Neutrality Vote

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.”

Net Neutrality: How White House Thwarted FCC Chief

After Secret Meetings, Obama Pushed for Tougher Stance on ‘Net Neutrality’

In November, the White House’s top economic adviser dropped by the Federal Communications Commission with a heads-up for the agency’s chairman, Tom Wheeler. President Barack Obama was ready to unveil his vision for regulating high-speed Internet traffic.

…The specifics came four days later in an announcement that blindsided officials at the FCC. Mr. Obama said the Internet should be overseen as a public utility, with the “strongest possible rules” forcing broadband providers such as AT&T Inc. and Verizon Communications Inc. to treat all Internet traffic equally.

The prod from Mr. Obama came after an unusual, secretive effort inside the White House, led by two aides who built a case for the principle known as “net neutrality” through dozens of meetings with online activists, Web startups and traditional telecommunications companies.

…As rumors swirled last fall that Mr. Obama was preparing to call for tougher Internet regulations, Comcast Corp. CEO Brian Roberts called Ms. Jarrett, pressed her for information and urged the White House not to go through with the move, people familiar with the matter say.

She offered no help, these people say. Google Inc. Executive Chairman Eric Schmidtspoke with White House officials, urging them not to go through with utility-like rules.

…After Republicans gained their Senate majority, Mr. Obama took a number of actions to go around Congress, including a unilateral move to ease immigration rules.

…Mr. Obama made them clear in a 1,062-word statement and two-minute video. He told the FCC to regulate mobile and fixed broadband providers more strictly and enact strong rules to prevent those providers from altering download speeds for specific websites or services.

DHS Training Video: White Gun Owners Portrayed As Terrorists

AmericanTerrorists

DHS Website contains ‘training video’ for deputized agencies.  Appears to be ‘conditioning’ for upcoming gun confiscation/demonization of white gun owners.

Very disturbing video straight from DHS website – they use it to help train all of the deputized agencies during a crisis, even hospital administrators, media faces, everything and everyone that would be involved in such an event.

The date of the video is unknown, but the video description links to the DHS website featuring documents that were uploaded in 2009 and 2012.

The DHS has long been suspected of gearing up to fight Americans. The agency has released documents describing conservatives, libertarians, people who distrust the federal government, people who oppose illegal immigration, who oppose the Federal Reserve and who support gun rights, among other things, as potential terrorists and “domestic extremists.”

The agency has further stoked fears by purchasing nearly 2 billion rounds of mostly hollow point ammunition, 7,000 fully automatic assault rifles, nearly 3,000 mine-resistant MRAP vehicles and$2 million worth of paper targets depicting Americans, including women and children.

Last month, Arkansas State Fusion Center Director Richard Davis admitted that the DHS spies on “anti-government” Americans.

Today Breitbart reports that the GAO (Governemnt Accounting Office) is investigating the reasons WHY the DHS has ordered more hollow-point ammunition than our military, holding more than 260 million rounds in stock for roughly 70,000 government agents authorized to use such arms:

Investigating The DHS Ammo Purchases

Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz, who chairs one of the House oversight subcommittees, held a hearing to find out why the Department of Homeland Security has been ordering so much ammunition. 

“It is entirely … inexplicable why the Department of Homeland Security needs so much ammunition,” Chaffetz said at the hearing.

He revealed that the department currently has more than 260 million rounds in stock.

He said the department bought more than 103 million rounds in 2012 and used 116 million that same year — among roughly 70,000 agents.

Comparing that with the small-arms purchases procured by the U.S. Army, he said the DHS is churning through between 1,300 and 1,600 rounds per officer, while the U.S. Army goes through roughly 350 rounds per soldier… He noted that is “roughly 1,000 rounds more per person.”

Now, according to US News Washington Whispers, the GAO is looking into the ammo purchases.

The congressional investigative agency is jumping into the fray just as legislation was introduced in both the Senate and the House to restrict the purchase of ammo by some government agencies (except the Department of Defense). The AMMO Act, introduced Friday, would prevent agencies from buying more ammunition if “stockpiles” are greater than what they were in previous administrations.

Head to US News for the rest. You won’t want to miss the “Lionel Commentary” on the DHS Ammo Splurge.
