Obama Administration Laying Groundwork for Takeover of Internet. No Joke.

Mon, Jun 14, 2010


President Obama and his FCC chairman Julius Genachowski couldn’t take over the Internet the first time they tried.  Ever since the DC Court of Appeals stopped them the first time they tried to take it (they said it was not the province of the Executive, but the Legislature, to determine whether or not the FCC had authority to regulate), they’ve been working feverishly to find a way to get around that pesky tripartite government thing, that annoying separation of powers that sometimes gets in the way of their takeover of every aspect of our lives.

They think they’ve found a way.  And we need to stop them.

They have hit on this idea of trying to reclassify the Internet as a public utility.  Why?  Because if they do, it gives this government agency the authority to regulate and take over the Internet.

No Joke.  Read all about it in this American’s for Prosperity Piece.

You need to get on the phone RIGHT NOW and let your Congressional Representatives that you know what is going on and that you expect them to block this … or else.

    It would seem that government take over and “regulation” of the internet would represent an infringement on First Amendment rights of free speech. I also wonder how they plan to “regulate” a global communication system, unless they are planning to copy China’s “regulation” of the internet. We have identified that as censorship. I think we are observing one more example of a push toward a totalitarian state.
