The Federal Communications Commission voted to eliminate net neutrality rules. Chairman Ajit Pai said Net Neutrality sounds like a good idea but actually harms consumers because it forces Internet Service Providers to treat all data the same and charge all users the same even though some, like Netflix, use massive bandwidth. He believes that users should pay for what they use and that, in a free market, high-volume users deserve a discount, which allows lower costs to customers of those services. [Imagine if airlines were required to charge the same per-mile rate for a thirty-minute local flight as if they do for a seventeen-hour flight to Australia. If they did, the short flights would lose money – and probably would no longer be available – or the longer flights would be far more expensive than necessary.] Even more important than who pays what is the issue of government control. Internet Neutrality rules allow Internet-content providers, such as Google, Facebook, and Twitter, to censor users based on political and social opinions. Chairman Pai believes that REAL net neutrality requires that these content providers should not be allowed to censor users and should follow the same rules applied to Internet Service Providers, such as Verizon and AT&T. Because of this position, Chairman Pai has become the target of numerous death threats. There were also protests at his house, and his children were identified on posters advising them their father is evil and that he murdered democracy. -GEG

Many also claimed they wanted to fight or punch him.

The Center of Immigration Studies also is suing SPLC President Richard Cohen and Heidi Beirich, who runs the group’s so-called Hatewatch blog. The CIS asserts it does not meet the SPLC’sown definition of a hate group. CIS says the SPLC’s true agenda is to stifle debate on important issues and to silence opposition to the leftist agenda.
Americans have low fertility rates and little incentive to have children while immigrants are subsidized by welfare to have many children. The American system is deliberately being overwhelmed in order to cause it to crash. Out of the rubble, the plan is to build a totalitarian regime which most people will think is there to help them.

When deaths from overdosing on OxyContin could no longer to be ignored, Sackler devised a corporate strategy to blame the victims for misusing their unethical products. Doctors were told that signs of addiction were ‘pseudoaddiction’ and should be treated by prescribing more of the drug.

Whenever governments take control over an industry, it is not long before corruption overrides theory. If one wants to know if net neutrality will be good or bad for consumers, just look at the strongest advocates. Why do you think that Google, YouTube, Governor Jerry Brown, and the legislature of California are so fond of net neutrality?
‘Net neutrality’ is a scam that targets signal carriers, like Verizon and AT&T for strict regulations while content carriers, like Facebook, Google and Youtube, are exempt. They scare the public into thinking that ‘net neutrality’ will protect them from being gouged by high priced, multi-tier bandwidth packages. George Soros and the Ford Foundation spent an estimated $72 million since 2006 to control the Internet. ‘Net neutrality’ is used to gain support from those who do not understand the deeper issues of fair cost and censorship.
Dr. Jerome Corsi explains that George Soros promoted net neutrality through the FCC because it prevents the FCC from ending political censorship by content carriers like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, all of which engage in anti-conservative censorship. Ajit Pai, Chairman of the FCC, who challenged the net-neutrality fraud, finally made it possible for the FCC to break monopolies, enforce the First Amendment and prevent censorship. Now we shall see if it actually does these things.
