The End of Freedom in America

The America that has existed from the days of the Declaration of Independence in 1776, when its sovereignty was acknowledged by a treaty with England 1783, and its founding in 1788 with the ratification of the Constitution is no more. The America for which thousands fought and gave their lives is no more

That America ends on February 26 when the Federal Communications Commission, under intense pressure from the Obama White House and with the votes of its Democratic Party commissioners asserts government control over the Internet with a 332-page set of regulations, dubbed “Net Neutrality.”

Writing in the Feb 22nd Wall Street Journal, columnist L. Gordon Crovitz summed up what will occur saying “Obamanet promises to fix an Internet that isn’t broken…The permissionless Internet which allows anyone to introduce a website, app, or device without government review, ends this week.”

“The big politicization came when President Obama in November demanded that the supposedly independent FCC apply agency’s most extreme regulation to the Internet.” Of course Obama wants the Internet regulated and of course the Democratic Party will support this move to control who gets to put up a website or blog and, more importantly, who gets to say anything critical of the President.

FCC to Vote on Net Neutrality Rules on Thursday

The New American

On Thursday consumers will finally be able to see and read the FCC’s (Federal Communications Commission) planned new rules to regulate the Internet. Deliberately hidden from public view, the 332-page document is expected to be passed by the FTC, as demanded by President Obama last November when he told FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler to adopt the “strongest possible rules” in regulating the Internet.

Leaks from the document were inevitable, and critics have slowly pieced together the latest attack on Internet freedom. Five times legislation has been offered in Congress to mandate “net neutrality,” and five times it has failed. Twice courts have struck down previous efforts to regulate the Internet. This time, however, ignorance and momentum are likely to rule the day, and the Internet.

Rudy’s right. Obama loves something, but it’s not this country

Flopping Aces
And I will prove it to you.A couple of days ago Rudy Giuliani violated the 11th Commandment:

Thou Shalt Not Ridicule a Black President

Giuliani dared to rip into Barack Obama:

WASHINGTON — Rudy Giuliani has delivered a political shot-in-the-gut to President Obama, charging the president doesn’t “love America.”

“I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America,” Giuliani told about 60 conservative business leaders gathered Wednesday night at the 21 Club to hear Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.

According to the former mayor, Obama doesn’t love Giuliani either.

“He doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up, through love of this country,” he continued, as Walker, who has entered the top tier of Republican presidential candidates, sat nearby.

The comments are a departure from standard political rhetoric, where blasting someone’s ideas is considered fair game, but questioning an opponent’s love of country is usually a no-no. Politico reported the expansive comments.

The fact is, Obama doesn’t love this country and Rudy said what at least half the country is thinking. Let’s crank up the Wayback Machine and revisit the moments when Barack Obama opened the door to his soul.

Like Obamacare? You Will Love ObamaNet

Family Security Matters

In his relentless drive to leave no aspect of American life unmolested, Obama’s next stop is cyberspace. Having “reformed” U.S. medicine, Obama now aims to “repair” the World Wide Web. If you like Obamacare, you will love ObamaNet.

On February 26, the Federal Communications Commission will vote on a “net neutrality” proposal to regulate broadband networks as if they were telephone monopolies from the days when copper wire was high tech. ObamaNet would let Uncle Sam intervene in the price, product-innovation, and capacity decisions of Internet Service Providers (ISPs).

Net neutrality? Let’s call it net brutality.

FCC Commissioner: Government Seizing FCC and Internet February 26

Independent Sentinal

The Government Will Tell You What Service Plans You Can Choose

Barack Obama has taken over the FCC and the Internet. I previously posted information about this which was made known thanks to Republican FCC Commission Ajit Pai. He was not supposed to release any information before it becomes final on February 26th. The rule is being put through under cover of complete secrecy.

The government has invented a problem on the Internet that doesn’t exist to create a solution using authority it doesn’t have putting people in charge who do not have the expertise.

Obama’s new regulations will control rates of any net provider and all their relationships.

Ajit Pai

The FCC is supposed to be independent but Mr. Obama told the FCC exactly what he wants. His new neutrality law does the opposite of what he claims it will do.

It is a government takeover of every aspect of the Internet. It will cost billions – over $11 billion to start – and it will control what is on the Internet. Providers will be under the powerful control of the government.

TSA Demands Internal Passport for Domestic Travel

Free Republic

Precedents exist for requiring citizens to produce special ID for domestic travel; they include Nazi Germany, apartheid South Africa and Russia (both Imperial and Soviet).

Over the Christmas season, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) quietly announced that America was walking down that path. By 2016, all domestic air travel will require either a traditional passport or a federally-compliant ID card called “Real ID.” State driver’s licenses will no longer allow Americans access to domestic flights, as they do now. Real ID will constitute an internal passport. (The drop-date date is commonly reported as January.)

An internal passport refers to an identity document that people must produce to move from place to place within national borders. It allows a government to monitor the movement of its own people and to control that movement by granting or denying ID. In the past, governments have used internal passports to isolate ‘undesirables’, to regulate economic opportunities, to reap personal data, to intimidate and command obedience, and to segregate categories of people (like Jews) for political purposes. It allows a government to bind anyone it chooses to his or her place of birth.

The upcoming Real ID requirement targets only air travel. But that’s how it begins – with airports.

After people became numb to years of ID demands, questioning and searches at airports, those tactics spread to train stations and subways. Then highway check-points were established in areas that lay within 100 miles from an “external boundary,” including coasts. U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents now have the authority to stop a traveller if they have “reasonable suspicion” of an immigration violation or other crime. Although the agents do not currently have authority to demand ID from American citizens, they often do so.

The ACLU has repeatedly cautioned that “[i]n practice, Border Patrol agents routinely ignore or misunderstand the limits of their legal authority in the course of individual stops, resulting in violations of the constitutional rights of innocent people….These problems are compounded by…the consistent failure of CBP to hold agents accountable for abuse. Thus, although the 100-mile border zone is not literally ‘Constitution free’, the U.S. government frequently acts like it is.”

USA 100-Mile Border Zone

Recently, highway checkpoints have occurred well outside the 100-mile “exemption” range, with agents demanding to see ID. They detain and threaten those who refuse the illegal demand:

The total control of movement always begins with airports. Real ID will be reality in the US by the end of the decade and, perhaps, long before. And it is not likely to be limited to air travel.

10 Times Barack Obama Was Wrong Before Changing His Mind About ISIS

IJReview

It is an understood and often wearisome aspect of the presidency of the United States that one does not have a blank slate upon assuming office. One inherits both the achievements and failures of all previous administrations. Thus, making statements about the nation’s course of action is fraught with peril.

President Obama demonstrated this cold lesson of history when he requested that Congress grant him military authorization to use force in Iraq – a nation the United States has largely vacated – in order to combat the growing scourge of ISIS (also known as ISIL or the Islamic State).

In this context, it’s important to review 11 major statements that former Senator and current president Barack Obama made on the war:
