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.

Lionel Nation’s Litany of Lies in Support of Ajit Pai’s Neoliberal Repeal of Net Neutrality

Lionel let his AIPAC show the other day and today he lets his ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council) out as he LIES THROUGH HIS TEETH about the upcoming net neutrality vote at the FCC. To Lionel, Ajit Pai is the next best thing to a hero we got.

I wonder if he gets a paycheck directly from ALEC or if they route it through a second party.

Bill Clinton’s Attack on Net Neutrality Brought to You by… Donald Trump and Ajit Pai

No it is not a wonder that Ajit Pai is praising neoliberal Bill Clinton’s internet deregulation model these days. Ajit is nothing more than the latest extension of the Washington Consensus’ neoliberal agenda while Slick Willie was one of it’s first. How long is it going to take us to figure out their their deregulation agenda never serves anyone or anything other than the interests of their friends in Big Business? You would think we would have figured that out by now… but you know what they say about the definition of insanity, right?

Net Neutrality II: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (May 2017)

For the record, it’s not too late to contact the FCC on their website and leave your comment regarding net neutrality. And Oliver’s website still works (www.gofccyourself.com), still links you directly to the site. Just hit the “express” button and fill in the blanks. Leave em a nice little comment before they vote next week. I did.

Here’s John’s video from earlier this year.

Net Neutrality Isn’t Dead Yet

The former Verizon lawyer in charge of the FCC is speaking at an event tomorrow … at Verizon Headquarters

from the Huffington Post

FCC chairman Ajit Pai is speaking at an event tomorrow at Verizon Headquarters in Washington, DC, just days before a planned vote to gut net neutrality protections, in a massive give-away to … Verizon.

Pai’s plan to allow Internet Service Providers (like Verizon) to control what Internet users can see with censorship, throttling, and extra fees has provoked massive backlash from across the political spectrum, and generated more than 750,000 phone calls to Congress through the site BattleForTheNet.com

This Thursday, there are more than 600 protests planned at Verizon stores and Congressional offices across the country. Congress has the power to stop the FCC vote, but they will only act if there is enough pressure from constituents. The agency is expected to vote on December 14.
