FCC Net Neutrality Hearing Stopped by Security (full commission hearing to that point w/ my commentary and ranting)

by Scott Creighton

As anticipated, they just voted to end net neutrality protections for a free and open internet. After a brief security pause, Ajit Pai resumed to his diatribe of tortured reasoning to explain why he was voting to bolster Big Telecom’s profit margins by ending the title 2 classification of the internet and the net neutrality regulations that have been in place for the past two years.

The two women on the commission voted to preserve the regulations while all of the men voted to remove them in favor of ALEC and Big Telecom.

What follows is a video of the hearing including the statements by the four commissioners and half of Ajit Pai’s leading up to the point where they were forced to leave the room. I did not reengage the recording after that.

Jody Hice Asked for an Investigation into the FBI’s Hillary-favoring Process? Okay. Here’s a Starter Pack

by Scott Creighton

Anyone who follows the work of this independent investigator knows I do not suffer the “there is no motive” line lightly. There is ALWAYS a motive even with the criminally insane. In the case of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) there is no insanity defense as they know exactly what they are doing as they collude with other agencies and political parties to undermine democracy in this country. There is a reason they are doing this… a “why”… a motive.

And the evidence is already out there… if you actually care take a look under a few moss covered stones. You might not like what you find. But it’s out here.

Millionaire Senator Rips Poor Kids As Lazy Moochers

Try to ignore the fact that fake-left sellout Cenk Uyger is sitting in the middle of the stage in this video. He says absolutely nothing and looks either stoned or just plain stupid up there. He seems about as quick as a slug in molasses. Other than that, pretty funny little scene.

And, oh Jimmy… stop trying to suck up to Cenk.

So much for State’s Rights huh Ted? So much for fewer Big Gubmint regulations. Its funny how quickly he will abandon those principles of his when his friends in Big Business ask him to.

Trump White House preparing sweeping attack on the poor

(I was told today I have emphysema. I’ve known about my COPD for a while now but that was brought about by chronic bronchitis. This is something kind of new to me. A little depressing.)

by Patrick Martin from WSWS

The Trump administration is preparing a frontal assault on social programs for the poorest Americans, according to a report published Monday by the Politico web site. This would involve “the most sweeping changes to federal safety net programs in a generation, using legislation and executive actions to target recipients of food stamps, Medicaid and housing benefits,” the web site said.

“The White House is quietly preparing a sweeping executive order that would mandate a top-to-bottom review of the federal programs on which millions of poor Americans rely,” Politico reported. “And GOP lawmakers are in the early stages of crafting legislation that could make it more difficult to qualify for those programs.”

The executive order could be issued as soon as next month. It amounts to a political conspiracy against the poorest sections of the working class involving the White House, the congressional leadership and dozens of state governments, working together to slash spending on programs for the poor through a combination of direct benefit cuts, tightened eligibility standards and mistreatment of vulnerable families to drive as many as possible out of programs on which they now depend…

Glenn Greenwald and Max Blumenthal’s Incredible Hypocrisy in Calling Out MSM’s “Cult” of Fake News

As bad as it is that the MSM colludes with the Deep State to manufacture discontent with the president these days, the fact is, they are BOTH CIA Mockingbirds from way, way back. They are frauds and liars and have no business pointing fingers at anyone else calling them “frauds and liars”
