Obama’s Takeover Of The Internet Was Spear-Headed By Self-Admitted Marxists

ObamaCare-for-Internet

“Our job is to make media reform part of our broader struggle for democracy, social justice, and, dare we say it, socialism.”

There is NOTHING NEUTRAL about the Net Neutrality rules being imposed by the FCC vote and ruling yesterday.  While the ignorantly gullible and emoting public gobbles up words the Oligarchs and Marxists use to sell it as ‘fairness’ and ‘cheaper’ – the actual architects and movers and shakers of the rules imposed by the FCC and FEC yesterday had completely different motives.  ‘Net Neutrality’ is just a sell word – same as the “Affordable Care Act” was used to push the complete takeover of the healthcare system via ObamaCare.

While we already have learned everything we do on the Internet is spied on by the NSA, catalogued and stored by the various Alphabets at Mordor On The Potomac, the same generation that went berserk over learning GW Bush ordered incoming international cell phone calls from overseas tapped – are jumping for joy over the FCC takeover of the internet whose rules are STILL being kept secret as I write this.  In short – they are cheering the takeover, taxation and restriction of their own playground.  Once the consequences of yesterday hit them, and broadband across the board slows to dial-up speed, who will they be directed to hate for that?  Will they demand Obama nationalize AT&T, Verizon and Comcast?  They certainly are not going to blame Obama or government. I know – blame Republicans, probably talking points are already written for that.

‘Net Neutrality’ as a term is as Orwellian as anything we have ever heard before.  The operative word of what happened yesterday is not NEUTRALITY, but NEUTRALIZE – as in to neutralize all non-‘progressive’ (i.e.: Marxist/Fascist) ideas from the internet and media.  Neutralize the average American from internet access by fees, taxes and fines upon everything they do on the internet.  Neutralize Capitalism from the internet.

Sound crazy?  Those are the words of one of the main architects of the top secret plans the Leftists strong armed the FCC to impose by fiat.  Consider it a Socialist-run purge of the internet.  Their  ultimate goal is banning and restricting content and limiting communication that poses a threat to the Ruling Class Tyrants in power and the various bogus agendas they push.  For now, it is about getting the media giants into the control of government and micromanaging how the internet itself runs and what can be charged for it so a ridiculous treasure-trove of untapped revenue can be streamed into the greedy hands of government via taxes and fees for everything that happens online.  Imagine having to pay taxes, or a ‘digital postage stamp’ on every e-mail you send and how much data you upload or download. The requirement of a digital ID before you can get online.  Those things are coming, they were made possible yesterday.  Today they set up the bureaucracy and target revenue streams.

Tomorrow, it is about silencing dissent.

Oppose the Climate Change and Global Warming hoax?  The net will be devoid of any dissent.  Anything that supports actual science instead of their agenda will be scrubbed and removed.

Support a political position or candidate that is not a Socialist/Marxist Ruling Class Oligarch?  That will fall under FEC campaign rules and the fees and fines and reporting duties are so onerous and mind boggling – the IRS scandal that targeted Conservative groups will seem like child’s play.

This people have absolutely no clue or idea what happened to them yesterday as the velvet coup marches on to impose the MarxoFascist ‘Utopia’ on a nation these evil beings seek to punish and destroy.

Comrades for Net Neutrality

The powers behind the FCC’s muscling of the Internet

Today’s vote by a bitterly divided Federal Communications Commission that the Internet should be regulated as a public utility is the culmination of a decade-long battle by the Left. Using money from George Soros and liberal foundations that totaled at least $196 million, radical activists finally succeeded in ramming through “net neutrality,” or the idea that all data should be transmitted equally over the Internet. The final push involved unprecedented political pressure exerted by the Obama White House on FCC chairman Tom Wheeler, head of an ostensibly independent regulatory body.

“Net neutrality’s goal is to empower the federal government to ration and apportion Internet bandwidth as it sees fit, and to thereby control the Internet’s content,” says Phil Kerpen, an anti-net-neutrality activist from the group American Commitment.

The courts have previously ruled the FCC’s efforts to impose “net neutrality” out of bounds, so the battle isn’t over. But for now, the FCC has granted itself enormous power to micromanage the largely unrestrained Internet.

Back in the 1990s, the Clinton administration teamed up with Internet pioneers to promote a hands-off approach to the new industry and keep it free from discriminatory taxation. Many still prefer that policy. Nicholas Negroponte, founder of the MIT Media Lab and the charity One Laptop Per Child, says that net neutrality “doesn’t make sense” because “the truth is, not all bits [of data] are created equal.”

Will Marshall, head of the Progressive Policy Institute (which was once a favorite think tank of Clinton Democrats), issued a statement that net neutrality “endorses a backward-looking policy that would apply the brakes to the most dynamic sector of America’s economy.”

But such voices have been drowned out by left-wing activists who want to manage the Internet to achieve their political objectives. The most influential of these congregate around the deceptively named Free Press, a liberal lobby co-founded in 2002 by Robert McChesney, a University of Illinois communications professor.

His goals have always been clear. “At the moment, the battle over network neutrality is not to completely eliminate the telephone and cable companies,” he told the website SocialistProject in 2009. “But the ultimate goal is to get rid of the media capitalists in the phone and cable companies and to divest them from control.” Earlier in 2000, he told the Marxist magazine Monthly Review: “Our job is to make media reform part of our broader struggle for democracy, social justice, and, dare we say it, socialism.” When I interviewed him in 2010, he admitted he is a socialist and said he was “hesitant to say I’m not a Marxist.”

In essence, what McChesney and his followers want is an Unfree Press — a media world that promotes their values. “To cast things in neo-Marxist terms that they could appreciate, they want to take control of the information means of production,” says Adam Therier of the blog TechLiberation.

Certainly McChesney seems blind to the dangers of media control on the left. In 2007, he co-authored a remarkable survey of the media under Hugo Chávez’s already clearly thuggish regime in Venezuela: “Aggressive, unqualified political dissent is alive and well in the Venezuelan mainstream media, in a manner few other democratic nations have ever known, including our own.”

Despite his astonishingly radical goals, McChesney’s Free Press group was able to leverage foundation cash and academic “research” into an influential force behind net neutrality. Julius Genachowski, President Obama’s first FCC chairman, hired Free Press’s Jen Howard as his press secretary. The FCC’s chief diversity officer, Mark Lloyd, has co-authored a Free Press report demanding regulation of political talk radio. The FCC’s National Broadband Plan cited research from Free Press and other left-wing groups backing net neutrality more than 50 times.

The battle for control of the Internet isn’t over. Over two-thirds of the House and Senate are on record as opposing FCC regulation of the Internet, and a new president could change the policy overnight in 2017 even if the courts don’t block it.

But for now, the “media reform” movement led by McChesney and his allies can claim bragging rights for their Saul Alinsky–style outflanking maneuver on Internet regulation. They financed the research behind the idea, installed their political allies in power, got the government to consider them experts on the issues they cared deeply about, and finally ran roughshod over both Congress and an initially reluctant FCC chairman. Conservatives should study how the Left won on this issue even as they acknowledge and fight the illegitimacy of many of the results.

Obama’s Takeover Of The Internet: He Will Impose It, So We Can Find Out What Is In It.

OBAMAInterNetControl

The FCC Commissioner sounds the alarm on Obama’s intent to regulate the internet, and the intent to hide the regulatory plans from public until they are implemented… by decree.

UPDATE: 2-11-15

Ajit Paion just stated on the Mark Levin Show that the Government takeover and regulation of the entire Internet is “A done deal”.  The details of this takeover are being kept secret from the public until it is enacted into “law”.    Paion said that Obama had demanded the FCC Commissioners take it over after the November elections by decreeing the Internet a “public utility” like railroads and television.  Paion noted that in classic Central Planning fashion, Obama’s regime creates “a problem that does not exist” for the excuse of nationalizing and taking it over.  Paion said the Obama regime has insisted it must “fix” “a problem that does not exist using authority it does not have”.  And the 3 Democrat appointed Commissioners have already decided Obama will get his way without any recourse of us ‘subjects’.

• Rates will increase.

• The public will be limited in choosing Government-directed ISP service plans.

• Political “campaigning” and discussion will be regulated

• Raising funding for advocacy and political causes will be regulated.

• Free political speech on the internet will be regulated.

• Content will be regulated.

• The rules and implementation will mimic ObamaCare.

• The details of this plan are secret until they are implemented into “law”.

 

FCC Commissioner Ajit Paion is alerting the public to President Obama’s internet regulation plan. The plan itself is concerning on many levels, however the decision by the White House to hide the regulatory plans from public review and sunlight review  is a key indicator of the deceit involved.

As is now self-evident with the Obama Tyranny, whatever he and they say their intents are – be assured they will do the exact opposite.

The White House is saying they have to implement the regulations for us to be able to see what’s in them:

STATEMENT OF FCC COMMISSIONER AJIT PAION PRESIDENT OBAMA’S PLAN TO REGULATE THE INTERNET
Last night, Chairman Wheeler provided his fellow Commissioners with President Obama’s 332- page plan to regulate the Internet. I am disappointed that the plan will not be released publicly. The FCC should be as open and transparent as the Internet itself and post the entire document on its website. Instead, it looks like the FCC will have to pass the President’s plan before the American people will be able to find out what’s really in it. In the coming days, I look forward to continuing to study the plan in detail. Based on my initial examination, however, several points are apparent.
First, President Obama’s plan marks a monumental shift toward government control of the Internet
It gives the FCC the power to micromanage virtually every aspect of how the Internet works. It’s an overreach that will let a Washington bureaucracy, and not the American people, decide the future of the online world. It’s no wonder that net neutrality proponents are already bragging that it will turn the FCC into the “Department of the Internet.” For that reason, if you like dealing with the IRS, you are going to love the President’s plan.
Second, President Obama’s plan to regulate the Internet will increase consumers’ monthly broadband bills.   The plan explicitly opens the door to billions of dollars in new taxes on broadband. Indeed, states have already begun discussions on how they will spend the extra money. These new taxes will mean higher prices for consumers and more hidden fees that they have to pay.
Third, President Obama’s plan to regulate the Internet will mean slower broadband for American consumers.
 
The plan contains a host of new regulations that will reduce investment in  broadband networks. That means slower Internet speeds. It also means that many rural Americans will have to wait longer for access to quality broadband.
Fourth, President Obama’s plan to regulate the Internet will hurt competition and innovation and move us toward a broadband monopoly. 
The plan saddles small, independent  businesses and entrepreneurs with heavy-handed regulations that will push them out of the market. As a result, Americans will have fewer broadband choices. This is no accident. Title II was designed to regulate a monopoly. If we impose that model on a vibrant broadband marketplace, ahighly regulated monopoly is what we’ll get. We shouldn’t bring Ma Bell back to life in this dynamic, digital age.
Fifth, President Obama’s plan to regulate the Internet is an unlawful power grab.
Courts have twice thrown out the FCC’s attempts at Internet regulation. There’s no reason to think that the third time will be the charm. Even a cursory look at the plan reveals glaring legal flaws that are sure to mire the agency in the muck of litigation for a long, long time.
And sixth, the American people are being misled about what is in President Obama’s plan to regulate the Internet.
 The rollout earlier in the week was obviously intended to downplay the plan’s massive intrusion into the Internet economy. Beginning next week, I look forward to sharing with the  public key aspects of what this plan will actually do.

Obama’s Regime Makes It Official: Government To Take Over The Internet

FCC-NetControl

Under the guise of ‘Net Neutrality’ the FCC chairman announced that the Feds are going to take control of the internet to regulate ‘fairness’.  Ultimately, we know it will end up being used to regulate content and take control of information.

Just like Arbeit Macht Frei was a colossal lie intended to engender abject submission to what was in reality – an extermination; so too is ‘Net Neutrality’ a colossal lie intended to engender abject submission to what will become an intended extermination of the free-flow of information on the internet.  All-the-while insisting that their takeover of the internet will preserve the free flow of information- which is a colossal and gargantuan lie.

The internet has worked just fine for decades without the oppressive grimy and corrupt hands of government molesting it, but Obama made the Orwellian decree  back in November that the Internet must be more heavily regulated “to keep it independent”.  Truly and Orwellian Ministry Of Truth moment from Obama’s lips.

Ronald Reagan told us a deep truth about the nature of a government beast by stating

“…government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.” – Ronald Reagan

So the big worry and the very thing we have been warning that the tyrants will do next, is to regulate the internet – and thus get it’s nose under the tent for the intended purpose of regulating it.  On Wednesday February 4, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler confirmed that indeed, under Obama’s directive – they intend to regulate the internet with a series of ‘new rules’ that in-effect give the Federal Government total control over the internet.

But like the Nazis and other tyrants in recent history that LIE, and use misinformation to engender compliance and acceptance of government takeover of everything – they tell us that it is in our best interests and in the name of ‘fairness’ that they take over and control the internet.

Name one thing that government has taken over to control that has benefitted the people and not lined the pockets of their cronies, PACs and politicians while making the very business they said they would make ‘better’ ridiculously more expensive and inefficient. Remember Cable TV when Congress regulated that for ‘fairness and our own good’????

In April, 1993, the FCC adopted rules governing cable rate regulation. According to the FCC, those rules would reduce rates by ten percent, on average, and would lower rates for as many as seventy-five percent of all cable subscribers throughout the country. The FCC estimated that its rules would lead to $1 billion in rate reductions.  They did no such thing, and instead rates skyrocketed.

You can be assured, that whatever government agencies say they will fix with ‘new rules’ – expect the exact opposite to take effect.  And trust history when I say that the most voracious appetite of all tyrannies of men, is the absolute control of the flow of information and dissent.  This government now ruling us has already told us that it collects all our phone data and conversations, e-mails and where we go on the internet.

It was inevitable that the tyranny that is the Obama regime would move to totally take over the internet.  Now it is here and the question becomes, who is going to stop them?

Congress?  They want a piece of the money pie that all the fees and taxes will generate.

The Courts?  They will do as they did with ObamaCare and homosexual marriage – do the bidding of His Heinous and use ridiculous stretches of legalese to justify fascism and control.

This is our generation’s version of a Stamp Act by the decree of a tyrannical king and his parliament.

What will we do now?  Suck up and pay up?  Call our useless congressman?  Bitch on talk radio?  Write a useless letter to a newspaper no one reads anymore?

The grip of tyranny tightens and like sheep, we are being herded to the edge of the cliff by wolves dressed up as sheepdogs.

FCC CHAIRMAN: INTERNET TO BE PUBLIC UTILITY

WASHINGTON, Feb. 4 (UPI) — The Federal Communications Commission will seek more influence on Internet regulation to ensure net neutrality, its chairman said Wednesday.

Tom Wheeler explained new rules, proposed this week, “to preserve the Internet as an open platform for innovation and free expression. This proposal is rooted in long-standing regulatory principles, marketplace experience, and public input.”

PUBLIC INPUT????????  Any of you ever have any INPUT into what the FCC regulates and makes rules on????  Total Barbara Streisand.

The change would give the FCC more power to regulate arrangements between Internet and content providers, and would change current policy in which Internet providers charge content companies, such as Netflix, for direct access to customers through broadband.

Remember when we were told that “If you like your healthcare plan you can keep it?  If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor”????

As we saw when all the promises of Cable TV rates coming down if only the government through the FCC regulates Cable TV – you can be assured that the exact opposite of preserving the Internet as an open platform for innovation and free expression will result.

In short – kiss the internet as you knew it … goodbye.  Kind of like your healthcare plan.

Government Will Now Regulate All Tobacco – Soon, All Food

FDA-Regulate

Government Will Now Regulate All Tobacco – Soon, All Food

INVAR

All the seig heiling cheerleaders empowering the government to regulate tobacco and other “harmful” legal substances have no clue (or maybe they do) of the absolute Frankenstein monster they are creating.


Today the Politburo passed a bill by an overwhelming margin of 307 to 97 – to grant the government the power to regulate and oversee tobacco production. Government will now tell the tobacco industry how much nicotine will be allowed in their products, and control ALL their advertising – which in essence will be ads that tell people to QUIT using their products.

Politburo Subcommittee Chairman of Health Henry Waxman (D-Ca) lauded the power that government now has to regulate “harmful” products that make a profit for companies.

Ultimately, this sets the precedent for government to control all business and farms in the United States. Just as they have nationalized the auto industry and will dictate what kind of cars, emissions and fuel mileage they can produce; just like Obama’s national health Care initiative will dictate what kind of health care you can receive and have rationed; the government now has the power to tell any company that produces a product how to make it and how it can be marketed. profits redirected to the state of course.

But this is not the worst part of this precedent. Because while you may cheer the punishment of the cigarette makers and the essential criminalization and takeover of the tobacco industry, you overlook the fact that your food is next on the chopping block.

Yes, the government now that it has control over regulating “harmful products” – is now moving to do the same thing to food production in the United States.

Think I’m kidding?

When Obama shoves his “national Healthcare” down our throats – he will OWN YOUR HEALTH, like he owns the companies that took TARP money in whom he now dictates how they will run.

Like those Twinkies, Pizza, soda and burgers? The government is going to tell the food companies how much fat, sugar and salt it can put in their products. After all, they contribute to bad health and when we get national healthcare – they will state they have to ‘control costs’ and force us to eat ‘healthier’.

Like a juicy steak, chicken or pork chops? Forget it – you will be made to go vegetarian because herds and flocks contribute to global warming and meat is “unhealthy” according to lobbyists that have power to write legislation in the Politburo. 

If you think this is fantasy – think again. The same subcommittee that pushed regulating and running the tobacco industry – is already moving to doing the same thing to the food industry:

Quote:

House Food-safety Bill Moves Forward 

The U.S. House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health has passed a food-safety bill that would give the Food and Drug Administration broader reach, including some authority on farms. It also would charge food processors a yearly $500 fee and impose tighter FDA scrutiny. The bill is called Food Safety Enhancement Act of 2009, and was introduced by Reps. John Dingell (D-Mich.) and Henry Waxman (D-Calif.).

Waxman is the House Energy and Commerce Committee chairman. He noted that the user feeds would go to FDA, giving the agency a “much-needed infusion of resources to keep the food supply safe.”

The legislation would require processors and growers to meet standards aimed at preventing food contamination and it would increase inspections.

The FDA being authorized to conduct on-farm inspections, which NCBA said would undermine USDA’s regulatory authority, would not improve food safety and would be costly.

The “full pedigree” traceability required of FDA by the bill (which would include meat, which is not regulated by FDA).

Giving FDA authority to create farm-safety standards, including manure use and animal control, which NCBA said are outside FDA’s expertise and already handled by USDA, Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of the Interior.

Granting FDA authority to quarantine a geographic area during a food-health emergency, which NCBA said would disrupt the food emergency response process that currently includes USDA, the Department of Homeland Security and individual states.


The camels noes, head and front feet are in the tent.

We are become nothing but slaves to the government and they will now tell us how to run our businesses, what we can drive, what we can eat.

Enjoy your chains America – so many of you are so comfortable with them on.
