Tech at Night

I’m going to try to coin a phrase here. The Founders, before the revolution, were strong believers in the right (or even the duty) of the legislative branch to defund a hostile executive. There were (appointed) colonial governors who came, immediately raised the ire of the (elected) legislature, and never got a dime appropriated for them for their entire terms of office.

It’s time to do the same thing to FCC, as elections have consequences.

While the Net Neutrality power grab got all of the attention, just as important was the FCC strike against federalism the same week, that unilaterally attempts to override all state laws against socialized Internet in this country. Imagine the audacity, to do that without a an act of Congress or anything.

Fortunately at least Tennessee is standing up to Barack Obama and his lap dog, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler, on this.

The Heritage Foundation is one of the most important components of the conservative movement. They’re a true Think Tank, bringing together many smart people to speak intelligently on many issues. And I agree with Jim DeMint’s predecessor at Heritage, Ed Fuelner, when he says Net Neutrality “needs to be eradicated, not embraced.

So Obama’s secret plan to regulate the Internet, the one that we weren’t allowed to see what was in it until it was passed, is finally out, and it’s anti-free speech, anti-innovation, and illegal. It was sold as one thing, but there’s a whole iceberg of problems beneath.

Before the FCC’s vote on Barack Obama’s secret plan to regulate the Internet, Netflix was the golden boy of the Net Neutrality movement. They were constantly cited as the reason we needed regulation, and Netflix played it up, hoping winners and losers would be chosen.

Well now it turns out, even Netflix opposes Obama’s plan.

Mike O’Rielly continues to do outstanding work, joining Ajit Pai in exposing the dangerous lack of transparency the Obama administration has shown. This is pretty bad. What does the FCC have to hide?

I know what you’re thinking: We all heard about FCC’s controversial, party-line vote to regulate the Internet under 1930s-era phone regulations, as Verizon has so successfully mocked to the annoyance of the far left. The “Title II Reclassification” deem-and-pass maneuver has done many things, but it didn’t outright socialize the Internet yet.

No, that was actually another vote this week.

They tell us that regulating things like a utility is good, when it comes to Net Neturality, but New Zealand is clear evidence to the contrary.

It’s no wonder a national consensus is forming against Obama’s plan to regulate the Internet. Polls are against it and even Google is realizing how wrong it is.

Ah, Net Neutrality. The thing that America is being lied to, and is worse than even Ajit Pai thought. The thing that they’ve been telling us for years was necessary and good, even in comments at RedState, but has been revealed to be nothing but a packet of lies motivated by big government, they’re working to bring it.

Let’s explore just how wrong it is.

Critics who don’t want to debate the merits of expanded government like to portray the Net Neutrality debate as activists vs Cable Companies™, but this isn’t that at all. This is the people vs. the Obama administration, as it is with EPA, NLRB, and every other overreaching regulator.

Don’t take my word for it. Commissioner Ajit Pai says “The American People are being misled about President Obama’s plan to regulate the Internet.” He’s seen the plan, folks. He’s in a position to know who’s lying, and who isn’t.
