Surprise! Net Neutrality will regulate the content of the internet. Today, Google is up in arms because their search analytics will be based on “factual” sites. That’s code for your search results will exclude FoxNews, WND, TheBlaze, TEA Party Patriots, and Caldwell TEA Party. “Factual” sites will be Whitehouse.gov, MSNBC, Huffington Post, Daily KOS, Washington Post, MediaMatters, and Southern Poverty Law Center.
Besides content regulation, it will cost you and me and our fellow Americans $2 billion in new internet taxes and fees. But that’s not what makes me angriest about this assault on free-speech.
I want to link to the new regulations, but they have not been released yet. As of this writing, the new regulations for Net Neutrality have not been posted to the FCC’s website yet. What are they hiding? What don’t they want us to know?
FCC Chairman Wheeler was asked to testify at a House Subcommittee on the new regulations. Chairman Wheeler declined. Why wasn’t he held in Contempt of Congress and put in jail??? How does Wheeler get away with not answering questions from Congress? I just don’t understand what is going on.
When the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) regulates broadcast TV, they regulate content, like the more adult TV shows can’t air before 10pm. Yes, broadcast/network TV is regulated, that’s why we have cable options with bad language, sex, and violence. But under Net Neutrality the same will happen to radio. Yes, radio content will be regulated. For every Rush Limbaugh time slot, there will have to be equal time for Left wing shows, moderate shows, LGBT show, global warming shows, etc…. Yes, the content of radio will be effected and your choices will be limited. So even if those Lefty shows have no audience, radio stations will be forced to air them anyway, if they want to keep Rush on the air. So forget having Glenn Beck, Rush, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage, Laura Ingrahm, Mark Levin, and George Noory all on one station. That won’t be allowed according to FCC regulations. YOU SHOULD CARE ABOUT THIS!!
When you use Google to search for “Global Warming”, the top results are pro-global warming and climate change BS sites. The Oregon Petition, over 31,000 scientists who have signed a petition stating that Global Warming is not man made, would not show up in the top results. I looked through 4 pages of results, and it didn’t come up. So, I Googled “global warming oregon petition,” and it wasn’t even the top return! Who does control the internet?? It’s only going to get worse if Net Neutrality takes full effect.
Well, the search returns are always ranked by an ultra-top-secret method (analytics) according to something we can’t know. Really, exact method of rankings are secret. We, conservatives, have long thought the results were politically manipulated, but now it will be way worse under Net Neutrality when the King will determine what is, and is not, “factual.” Ha!! The King, Barack Hussein Obama, is going to decide what is, and is not, “factual” – oh spare me!
Obama wouldn’t know truth if it was in his roomy mom-jeans. Obama already lives in some alternate universe where the economy is roaring, terrorism isn’t Islamic, everyone has a job, our $18 trillion national debt is a good thing, and there’s no danger awaiting us on the southern border. He’s nuts. The King has no clothes. It’s 1984.
Yep, I’ve known that Net Neutrality will regulate content of radio, TV, cable, and internet for years. Why did it take these lefty, free-speech, free-internet groups so long to catch a clue?? Did they relay on what the King’s court told them? If everyone had just listened to the TEA Party groups and conservative talk radio across the country about Obamacare and Net Neutrality, we could have spared them all these shocks.
Republican FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai has been outspoken against Net Neutrality regulations. He was on FoxNews last week holding up the thousand pages of new regulations, but said he was not permitted to share the contents with anyone until after the vote. “The vote ‘imposes intrusive government regulations that won’t work to solve a problem that doesn’t exist using legal authority the FCC doesn’t have,’ said Ajit Pai….” It passed 3-2 along party lines.

The FCC has not released the new regulations yet. I guess they had to pass it to know what’s in it? As soon as, it is released for public view, I will share the link.
You have it correct but what do we do about it ? Most of our RINO congress does not have the balls to stand up to him. John C.
