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
Numerous leftists on Twitter lobbed death threats at FCC Chairman Ajit Pai after the committee voted to repeal Obama-era “net neutrality” regulations Thursday.
Some threats were more overt than others.
Others just wished for Pai’s death, asked for assassins to murder him, or asked him to kill himself.
Many also claimed they wanted to fight or punch him.
Venezuela’s new system will be based on the Chinese model that tracks, rates and punishes citizens’ behavior. Venezuelans have needed a card for access to subsidized food, healthcare, and gasoline since 2014, and the new cards will monitor users’ behavior.
Ann Coulter says the caravan was planned as a stunt by Democrats to impact American political opinion. As a side effect, women and children are being set up to be kidnapped, raped, and sold. She says the leftists behind this stunt should be prosecuted for human smuggling.
PayPal banned pro-free speech video platform BitChute, a Youtube competitor, preventing it from receiving payments. The tech giants share the same politicized agenda and protect each other from competition. This is the hallmark of a cartel.
The California state utility regulator has indicated that PG&E will be able pass its losses onto its customers. High rates could chase away business. Critics oppose a bail out for PG&E, which has a tarnished safety record.
Activist Gary Gileno says that vote fraud is orchestrated and planned, which he says is proved by the fact that no one ever goes to jail for doing it. President Trump has made it a priority to implement Real ID by 2020.
President Trump warned violent leftists and Antifa members that opposition to them may “mobilize,” and “cause trouble” for them. The liberal media, well-organized leftist groups, law enforcement and Democrat politicians protect Antifa.
The GOP establishment RINOs (Republicans in Name Only), including Paul Ryan, voted in Kevin McCarthy as House Minority Leader, while rejecting Jim Jordan of the Freedom Caucus and a favorite with Trump supporters.
Press conferences with the president are not guaranteed by the Constitution. Tucker Carlson pointed out the irony of CNN claiming a violation against free speech as the network led the campaign to silence Alex Jones on the internet.
New climate models, based on solar activity, show the Earth will experience a cooling effect over a 33-year period beginning in 2021. Restrictions and punishments against carbon emitters imposed by the United Nations and the Democratic Party will be threatened.
Republican Matt Caldwell won his election for the state Agricultural Commissioner on Election Day as he was up by 40,000 votes, and there were only 30,000 votes that could possibly still come in from Broward, so his campaign declared victory and went to bed.

‘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.
Jack Dorsey, the CEO of Twitter, campaigned for Net Neutrality, claiming it was “indispensable to free expression”. To show his dedication to free expression, Twitter now is on a roll banning prominent right-wing figures. [The Trump administration said that net neutrality rules needed to be abandoned so the FCC would have the authority to prevent content providers like Twitter from censoring commentary. Now we get to see if the FCC actually will follow through on this promise. So far, not word.]
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.
