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.
New Mexico is suing Google, Twitter, Tiny Labs, and other app developers for collecting data on children under 13-years-old without their parents’ permission. The apps can track where children live, play, and go to school.
Syria: A Russian military plane was shot down accidentally by Syrian anti-aircraft fire, killing all 15 on board. Initially, Moscow blamed Israel, because Israeli jets were flying in the same area as the passenger route and, thereby, attracted Syrian anti-aircraft fire into the path of the passenger plane.
The basis for the war in Afghanistan was an official document that was classified as secret but which was said to contain conclusive proof that the 911 attack on the US was directed from Afghanistan, but there was no proof whatsoever.
Google’s Chinese search engine, called ‘Dragonfly’, will censor dissidents, block information critical of the government, and will link searches to phone numbers, thus allowing authorities to identify who is making the searches. [Google finds nothing wrong with participating in this program.]
Car ‘smash and grabs’ are common in California because thieves know they will not be prosecuted. In San Francisco, police-commission rules forbid police to chase thieves if they try to escape in a car. This, they say, is to cut down on high-speed chases and, therefore, is justified because it reduces accidents.
A leaked clip shows how Facebook is used to spread political propaganda and promote hidden agendas in a way that most viewers do not detect. Be aware that there are powerful forces using sophisticated techniques to engineer your opinions about issues that profoundly affect your future.
Despite California having a vigorous economy, 20% of Californians are suffering economic hardship, mostly due to the cost of housing. Moderate wage earners age 35 to 44 are leaving California due to rising crime, heavy traffic, a growing homeless epidemic and, especially high taxes. [These are the natural effects of collectivism. Only the wealthy and the impoverished will remain in the state. Eventually, everyone will be impoverished except the ruling elite.]
Democrats are demanding that Senator Chuck Grassley postpone the vote to appoint Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court following accusations by Christine Blasey Ford, 51, a far-left California professor, who claims Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her more than 35 years ago.
In a rare and unprecedented speech delivered on the House floor just two days after the nation memorialized 9/11, Democratic Hawaiian Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard on Thursday slammed Washington’s longtime support to anti-Assad jihadists in Syria, while
Dragonfly, the search system, was designed to remove content that China’s authoritarian government views as sensitive, such as information about free speech, democracy, human rights, and peaceful protest. Poulson also had concerns over the accessibility customer data to Chinese agencies that target political activists and journalists.
Some of the evidence provided by the UK is questionable, especially since the event was used to impose sanctions against Russia, and new sanctions are threatened. Jake Morphonios shows how the photos of the suspects at Gatwick Airport in England appear to be doctored by Scotland Yard.

‘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.
