Seizing the Internet

The American Spectator

Staffers at the Federal Communications Commission with ties to the commission’s chairman, Julius Genachowski, coordinated media and strategy planning with senior Free Press and MoveOn.org officials in the run up to Genachowski’s announcement that he would be seeking an FCC vote on imposing so-called “net neutrality” rules on broadband and the Internet, and doing so when Congress is out of session during the Thanksgiving and Christmas recesses.

“Net neutrality” is a policy proposal that would essentially strip the control and traffic management of broadband networks from those companies that deployed them and make them run properly, and transfer much of that oversight to the federal government. Under the proposal rumored to be under consideration by the FCC, network operators such as AT&T and Comcast would not be allowed to offer consumers prioritized service or quality of service guarantees for such things as movie downloads and video streaming.

The Naked Truth About “Porno” Scanners

Human Events

“Those who give up essential liberty to purchase a little security deserve neither liberty nor security.”
—Benjamin Franklin

There must be a law like Murphy’s Law that states that government agencies with excessive authority inevitably go overboard in their regulations.  Remember the year in the 1980s when the Federal Transportation Agency imposed an ignition device on new cars so that the engine wouldn’t start unless the driver wore his seat belt?

Citizens objected so vociferously that the government quickly reversed itself.

Let’s hope the same thing occurs with the Obama administration’s decision to install invasive “full body” scanners at airports in the United States, and to impose invasive pat-downs for those who uphold their Fourth Amendment rights against “unreasonable searches.”  Americans need to stand up and say, “Enough is enough.”

Bob Decheine, chief of staff to Rep. Steve Rothman, D-N.J., has been arrested (and fired) following his arrest last Friday.

Voter anger fuels support for “Repeal Amendment”

Rapidly growing support for the “Repeal Amendment” –  a proposed constitutional amendment that would allow a vote by two-thirds of the states to repeal an act of Congress —  symbolizes the intense level of anger Americans have with Washington, according to observers.

In September, Virginia stood alone as the only state where leaders in the state legislature had shown an interest in passing the amendment, but that number has now grown to nine states.

Mexico is angry

Be certain and read the part below that says “Read to the bottom…”  Maybe this is what the U.S. needs to do?!?!  Please forward to all you know and ask them to forward to all they know.  Maybe we can make this happen if we act in concert, all together, because Mexico doesn’t want their own people!

SO, MEXICO IS ANGRY! I SAY,Three cheers for Arizona!!!


Suddenly the shoe is on the other foot and the Mexicans from the State of Sonora , Mexico do not like it.  Can you believe the nerve, the gall, of these people?  It’s almost funny if it weren’t such a tragedy. The State of Sonora is angry at the influx of Mexicans into Mexico . Nine state legislators from the Mexican State of Sonora traveled to Tucson to complain about Arizona ‘s new employer crackdown on illegals from Mexico . It seems that many Mexican illegals are returning to their hometowns and the officials in the Sonora state government are unhappy.

A delegation of nine state legislators from Sonora was in Tucson on Tuesday to state that Arizona ‘s new Employer Sanctions Law will have a devastating effect on the Mexican state. At a news conference, the legislators said that Sonora , – Arizona ‘s southern neighbor – made up of mostly small towns – cannot handle the demand for housing, jobs and schools that it will face as Mexican  workers return to their Mexican hometowns from the USA without jobs or money.



The Arizona law, which took effect Jan. 1,  punishes Arizona employers who knowingly hire individuals without valid legal documents to work in the United States . Penalties include suspension of, or loss of, their business license.

The Mexican legislators are angry because their own citizens are returning to their hometowns, placing a burden on THEIR state government. ‘How can Arizona pass a law like this?’ asked Mexican Rep Leticia Amparano-Gamez, who represents Nogales . ‘There is not one person living in Sonora who does not have a friend or relative working in Arizona ,’ she said, speaking in Spanish. ‘Mexico is not prepared for this; for the tremendous problems it will face as more and more Mexicans working in Arizona and who were sending money to their families return to their home-towns in Sonora without jobs,’ she said. ‘We are one family, socially and economically,’ she said of the people of Sonora and Arizona .

Wrong! The United States is a sovereign nation, not a subsidiary of Mexico , and its taxpayers are not responsible for the welfare of Mexico ‘s citizens. It’s time for the Mexican government, and its citizens, to stop feeding parasitically off the United States and to start taking care of its/their own needs.


Too bad that other states within the USA don’t pass a law just like that passed by Arizona . Maybe that’s the answer, since our own Congress will do nothing!

New Immigration Laws:  Read to the bottom or you will miss the message…


1. There will be no special bilingual programs in the schools.
2. All ballots will be in this nation’s language.

3. All government business will be conducted in our language.
4. Non-residents will NOT have the right to vote no matter how long they are here.
5. Non-citizens will NEVER be able to hold political office.
6. Foreigners will not be a burden to the taxpayers. No welfare, no food stamps, no health care, or other government assistance programs. Any burden will be deported.
7. Foreigners can invest in this country, but it must be an amount at least equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage.
8. If foreigners come here and buy land… options will be restricted. Certain parcels including waterfront property are reserved for citizens naturally born into this country.
9. Foreigners may have no protests; no demonstrations, no waving of a foreign flag, no political organizing, no bad-mouthing our president or his policies. These will lead to deportation.
10. If you do come to this country illegally, you will be actively hunted and, when caught, sent to jail until your deportation can be arranged. All assets will be taken from you.


Too strict ? The above laws are the CURRENT immigration laws of   MEXICO !
