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.

South Africa: Boer farmers, who descended from Dutch settlers, are being brutally slaughtered due to racial animosity, and because they own great swaths of land that the Bantu people are told was stolen from them. South Africa is arid, and the Boer farmers who developed modern agricultural skills made the land sufficiently productive to feed the nation. […]
Tucker Carlson called Trump’s capitulation to the intelligence community’s line that Russia is a major threat a ‘hostage tape.’ Tucker then gave examples of how US intelligence agencies, the deep state, and NGOs, have kept America in wars for the past 20 years, including the invasion of Iraq, the killing of Libyan President Moamar Gadhafi, and the prolonged Syrian war that led to open borders in Europe.

In a new TV series on Showtime, Sacha Baron Cohen poses as a TV journalist or film producer and, in that disguise, lures celebrities into making outrageous statements on camera or endorsing outrageous proposals. Famous figures caught in the trap include former Congressman Joe Walsh, Senator Bernie Sanders, Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, former VP Dick Cheney, and Larry Pratt, former head of Gun Owners of America. Cheney was given a waterboard to sign and actually did it. In two episodes, Cohen posed as a gun-rights advocate from Israel who wanted to interview Walsh and Pratt on the advantages of teaching gun safety and shooting skills to children as well as adults. Not suspecting that they were being lured into a trap, they both concurred with Cohen’s suggestion that kids are never too young to learn these things. When he said they should be taught starting at sixteen all the way down to three, they foolishly agreed. From that moment, forward, the thrust of the episode was that these men want to give loaded guns to three-year-olds. […]
A police watchdog group reported that police officers in London often failed to record crimes, including domestic abuse and violence when they occurred alongside other crimes. Almost one in ten sexual offense crimes, including rape, were not recorded. They also neglected to record some low-level crimes. More than half of people in the UK have lost confidence in the police. Meanwhile, hate crimes are rigorously investigated, and a George Soros-linked NGO is working with police to fund enforcement for hate crime laws. […]
MGM is claiming that a 2002 federal law extends liability protection to any company that uses ‘anti-terrorism’ technology or services that can prevent and respond to mass violence, and MGM hired security for the concert that was certified by the Department of Homeland Security. A victims’ attorney says that only the security company is protected from liability under the federal law and MGM is still on the hook for liability. […]

Sleeping Giants organized campaigns on social media and through leftist media outlets to apply pressure against advertisers who support conservatives until they pull their ads.

Ten Days at Jekyll Island, a novel by Patrea Patrick, tells the true story of a secret meeting held in November of 1910 on a privately owned resort island, the outcome of which drastically changed the world. It was at this meeting that a banking cartel was forged; a cartel that, three years later, would be issued a government charter to do business as The United States Federal Reserve System. You will discover why secrecy was essential. Based on historical documentation from The Creature from Jekyll Island by G. Edward Griffin. (More)
Offline is a documentary on the inevitability of the Earth being slammed by a mega solar flare – not the common type that interrupts communications and creates a light show in the Northern skies – but the big brothers thousands of times more powerful. These monsters deliver enough energy to blow apart the master transformers that supply the planet’s energy grids. When that happens, the lights go out for longer than anyone wants to think about. These X-Class solar storms hit the Earth every 150 years, on average. The last one arrived 156 years ago. We are overdue (More)
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.] […]
‘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. […]
