The dirty little secret behind net neutrality

You may not be aware the FCC passed new regulations on the Internet the end of last month. You probably have no idea what those regulations are. And that’s the way the FCC commissioner wanted it.

Under the innocuous-sounding “net neutrality,” the liberal majority, 5-person commission quietly passed sweeping regulations of the Internet designed to turn it into a government-regulated commodity.

Only today was the 400-page document released publicly, and now we know why it had to be kept secret. The real agenda becomes clear when you understand who was pushing so hard for the regulations.

Free Press, an activist group heavily funded by George Soros was instrumental in pushing the FCC to regulate the Internet, and in fact is cited 46 times in the document regarding its arguments supporting more regulation.

But there’s nothing really “free” about the real intentions of Free Press.

As the Daily Caller reports, “one of Free Press’ co-founders, Robert McChesney, a communications professor at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, has not been shy about his desire to see the Internet regulated heavily.”

“But Internet regulation appears to be only part of McChesney’s more radical agenda of completely revamping how the media operate in the U.S.”

“In the end, there is no real answer but to remove brick by brick the capitalist system itself, rebuilding the entire society on socialist principles,” McChesney wrote in a 2009 essay.”

So what is the true design of these regulations? As we reported previously, there appears to be a concerted effort by both the FCC and the FEC to eventually control content.

Phil Kerpen, president of the free-market group American Commitment, wrote an open letter to McChesney after the regulation was passed saying, “The unthinkable has become thinkable, and the free-market Internet – one of freedom’s greatest triumphs – is set to be reduced to a public utility, subject to pervasive economic regulation and, in turn, to content control.”

We are truly living in an Orwellian society where Newspeak is being forced upon us. Net NEUTRALITY? There is nothing neutral about government control.

Enjoy this website while you can, folks.

In my 50+ years dealing with the FCC, the organization has always been a highly professional group with a goal of making communications better for the public. It has never been about political gain. Obama has changed all that. Every decision is about gaining political power. Genekowski and Wheeler, both Obama appointees, have been the worst FCC administrators ever.

It is what it is. A letter filled with good intention and meant to grab global media; while also making a fool out of both the writer and signers. This nonsense at a time, when it is the President of the nation who is grossly committing treason our media loving Senators are sending “school boy” notes to Iran instead of doing their jobs and bringing Obama before Congress.

I can’t find the link now but I read someone’s statement that no one should get their shorts in a twist over the net neutrality thing yet because there will be tremendous push back and in the near future with new legislators, much of it will likely be altered or cleaned up to not be the controlling monster it is…..Guess we’ll wait and see.

For what it’s worth, the FORD Foundation is one of Soros’ closest allies in this attack on our freedom (http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/soros-ford-shovel-196-million-to-net-neutrality-groups-staff-to-white-house/article/2560702). Kind of ironic that many conservatives now misguidedly back Ford as America’s sweetheart car company. Ford has long-held leftist ties and, less than a decade ago, was even boycotted by conservatives because of their ‘progressive’ social agendas (http://www.foxnews.com/story/2006/03/13/conservative-groups-boycott-ford-motor-co-over-gay-rights-support/). Now, post GM bankruptcy, they have turned things on their head and have many on the right shilling in support for them, yet their liberal behind-the-scenes efforts continue.

GM, “Bailed-Out”, with our hard-earned tax dollars now builds most of their cars in China. They are really “China Motors”, now. Progressive Insurance, despite Flo, and her goofy persona, is another prog-lib colossus. We should boycott these Anti-American, leftist Corporations, and work to stop their NWO/Agenda21, Eugenicist, 4th Reich PlayBook. I Hate Elitists, & Their Slimy Puppets. We Should Rise Up & Put Them In Those Traitorous FEMA Camps They Have Built To Fill With We The People. If Elites Want Population Reduction, They Should Start With Themselves. We Should Help Them Along In That Mission.

Mike Rosa

I agree with much of what you wrote, particularly about the cutsie personalities the left has used as marketing covers to shield their otherwise off-putting ambitions (just like drug company advertisements showing fun cartoons while they discuss associated mortality risks). However, as trivial as it sounds, GM does not build most of its cars in China—in fact, I am not aware of even a single model that is built in China for sale in the US. They build cars in China for the Chinese market, just like every other company that wants to stay relevant.

This was a very good move by the Elites, very bad for the People. They basically gave us two choices:

1) Dump Net Neutrality, which would allow corporations to force customers to pay more for certain content, a bit like the TV Channel Packs offered by Cable Companies… it would also become a nightmare for smaller companies such as NetFlix;
2) Keep Net Neutrality, and accept the fact that Internet will be censored by the Governments.

There is no win. It’s a lose-lose shituation!

Well if you watched or read anything ither than fixed news, you would know that the providers can slow traffic to sites and speed up traffic to others. Additionally, they can change what you see in your searches and also increase advertising content by the companies that advertise with them. So you only see what your provider wants.

You don’t understand how our government works do you? First of all will come higher taxes and fees for the internet and all you have to do is look at the IRS to see how good the government is at remaining neutral. Money and power does a lot to influence these decisions.

“Because you guys know everything and are always right!” Project much? I seriously doubt that anyone who spells the word “hear” as “here” has worked on anything for 9 years, except a bong. “Leveling the playing field” whether on the internet or off, is still government interference in the market place. Competition and consumers determine “fairness” in the free market and gives consumers the most freedom. Only a socialist thinks that this is good.

Net neutrality is a misnomer. This is all about censorship, the government controlling what is said and who says it.

This is all “doom and gloom” propaganda. I am disappointed to see this here on West’s site. Content regulation exists and has existed in some nations (China, Turkey, Pakistan, others) long before “net neutrality” was being discussed. If our government wanted to control content, they would have already done so. In fact, in *some* cases, they HAVE done so. There are numerous websites that have been shut down due to the nature of their content, and that trend is likely to continue. The bottom line is, if our freedom of speech begins to be over-censored by the government, there will… Read more »

It blows my mind how many people think ‘net neutrality’ is content censorship. ‘net neutrality’ is to ensure that ALL CONTENT GETS THRU without an ISP basically censoring it by purposely slowing or blocking the content that doesn’t pay up. it doesn’t mean all content moves at the same speed (as I’ve seen others try to report.) it means all content has the same priority. you’ll be able to watch netflix because you want to and not because netflix ponied up extra monies and the ISP now lets their data thru – but blocks or slows the amazon prime data… Read more »

@Rand0Mone..you can only vote people out, if they ALLOW you to vote people out. If there is a dictatorship…forgetaboutit! You will not be allowed to vote…unless you vote in their favor. All sections of the Communist Manifesto, that was floating around in the 1950’s, have been made a reality. Only ONE is left. Gun ownership. Once that one is taken away…we are a nation of freedom…no more.

He is a Marxist that follow the ilk of Saul Alinski, “rules for radicals” and Van Jones who wrote “Storm”, read them and see the very play books this administration is using!

There is a light at the end of the tunnel…Rep. Marsha Blackburn has introduced House Resolution 1212 that would prohibit the FCC from reclassifying broad band internet service as a telecommunications service, and prevent them from imposing certain regulations. So far she has 31 co-sponsors. Please contact your Rep, and demand they co-sponsor, and vote for Rep. Marsha Blackburn’s House Resolution 1212.

Some one put out a Wanted Poster for Soros and his son
and every one working for his Communist group kinda like
the Deck of cards for Sadam Housane and his crew.
Better yet capture and take Soros to Israel to be tried for
his War crimes and duplicity with the Nazis and the Communist’s

It’s really beginner-friendly a­­n­­d I am just so blessed that i discovered it. Check out what I do… -> –>See more here <-

This has been on the progressive wish list for a long time. They have tried repeatedly to get their “Fairness Doctrine” back but were thwarted…until now. Any and all of wishes will be made manifest if this is allowed to stand. The collectivists/progressives know that in order to control the people, communication must be controlled by the “masters”. They get bonuses with this, too. New taxes to go with all the new regs and fees on top of that (taxes by another name). Crony-ism will flourish more than it already has on the internet. So far, all content regulating to… Read more »

FOR ANYONE WHO DOESN’T KNOW MUCH ABOUT GEORGE SORROS.. This scum during WWII was just a kid, but sent his own Jewish people to the gas chambers just to save his own fat a$$!!! He is the scum at the bottom of the sewage treatement sludge. He owns most of the media and that’s why you don’t hear all the bad stuff on Obama, and he forbids his people to report on it. If someone ever off’s this man, I am going to throw a party!!! The only problem is he has a son that is just as wicked as… Read more »

If you don’t know, you must have your eyes closed.. First — did you know that most of his staff are Muslim brotherhood, the military Chaplains cannot quote Biblical scripture, but can have a Koran. He has weakened our military, weakened our ability to perform as a country, has contributed $486 MILLION last year to IRAN, and will do another $2 billion this year! (article in Washington Post today!) He will not engage ISIS, but sits in the background. The Kurds have begged us for more and modern weaponry specifically M16’S and MORTORS.. HE REFUSED. Egypt’s new president is trying… Read more »

Also, don’t forget the litmus test that is going on with the upper ranks in the military. They are being asked if they are willing to turn arms against their fellow Americans should a need ever arise. We are doomed!

Understand, George Soros is of Jewish decent (blood line) does not mean he is a practicing Jew (religion wise), he is an Atheist!

I’ll paraphrase a old CS Lewis quote. “Atheists live in fear that God doesn’t exist.”

The flames of Hell are waiting patiently for George Soros, or whatever his real name is.

yeah I can see that since he is responsible for butchering his own people man woman and child when he pointed them out to go to the ovens…. I just can’t wait to watch that S.O.B. burn in hell..

If the American people allow illegal legislation to become law with out a very serious protest then they will have no one to blame but themselves! United States Constitution Article I and Amendment I. To do so will be the end of the United States of America and its Laws; The United States Constitution. Because then any bureaucratic department can and will make law by its own means of legislation and by committee or procedure. IT IS WAY PAST THE TIME TO THROW THEM ALL OUT OF OFFICE AND FIRE THE UNITED STATES CONGRESS AND ALL OF THE BUREAUCRATIC DEPARTMENTS.… Read more »
