Eric Holder: Inability to Pass Gun Control My ‘Single Failure’

February 10, 2015

On Sunday, MSNBC aired Melissa Harris-Perry’s interview of Attorney General Eric Holder and he said the “single failure” of his tenure as AG was the failure to secure gun control.

As a follow-up to our article from yesterday about Congress, Jason Chaffetz and the government oversight committee investigation of these new proposed regulations. Bits and pieces are starting leak out about what is intended for the regulation of the Internet it will be based on an outmoded scheme for telephones, from a story on Breitbart:

FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler recently acknowledged that the two Democrats on the commission had decided to avoid Congressional input regarding the Internet by adopting President Franklin Roosevelt’s 1934 Communications Act to regulate the Internet with the same federal control as the old AT&T customer monopoly. To make sure that libertarian advocates would remain in the dark, Wheeler “embargoed” release of any of the specifics in the new administrative “policy” that will act as law.

The FCC legislation that was passed eighty-one years ago by the most leftist Congress in American history to ban companies from participating in “unjust or unreasonable discrimination” when providing phone services to customers.

But in 1949, the Democrat-dominated Commission implemented the “Fairness Doctrine” that required holders of media broadcast licenses to present “issues of public importance” in a manner that is “honest, equitable, and balanced” in the “Commission’s view. It would take 39 years before a conservative Congress could overturn a policy that hijacked the mainstream media to kowtow to liberals or face loss of their licenses.

This really is nothing but a power grab to throttle the internet not over content delivery speeds or bandwidth, it is about content and being able to control who says what and when, since we have a reference to the "fairness doctrine" above. Which is how this may play out is if you have a dissenting opinion on your website from the lefts party line you will need to post other viewpoints to make sure the left is fully represented in all their madness.  One aspect of public debate that the left has excelled at is shooting down competing interest and drowning out conservative ideas and opinions, this is what this is really all about:

Pai’s confrontational comments came after FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler penned an op-ed in Wired Magazine detailing his spin on the core aspects of the Democrat’s desire to lump ISPs under the amended Title II of the 1996 Telecommunications Act — which was used to break-up the AT&T telephone monopoly into four regional Bell companies at the dawn of the digital age.

“Using this authority, I am submitting to my colleagues the strongest open internet protections ever proposed by the FCC,” Wheeler wrote on Wednesday. “These enforceable, bright-line rules will ban paid prioritization, and the blocking and throttling of lawful content and services.”

Pai responded that the “Courts have twice thrown out the FCC’s attempts at Internet regulation” during the Obama Administration. On January 14, 2014, the D.C. Federal Circuit Court of Appeals struck down most of the FCC’s November 2011 net neutrality rules. The Appellate Court vacated the FCC’s “anti-discrimination” and “anti-blocking” as essentially discriminatory and blocking in an attempt to again give the FCC political appointees the power to dictate what they believe is honest, equitable, and balanced.

Pai said that after a year of debates responding to the courts twice striking down FCC efforts to regulate the Internet, “There’s no reason to think that the third time will be the charm. Even a cursory look at the plan reveals glaring legal flaws that are sure to mire the agency in the muck of litigation for a long, long time.”

Pai promised he would make further comments as he reviews the plan himself in the next two weeks in the run-up to the FCC’s public vote on February 26. He has blamed the two Democrat Commissioners’ for their dismissal of any negotiations with Congressional Republicans in setting the “basic rules” governing Internet access.

As Breitbart has highlighted before, turning the Internet into a “telephone service” would “empower an intrusive public sector that thrives on high taxes, heavy-handed controls and the status quo.

This is the reality of the plan that Obama has for the Internet, it is simply to stifle speech that is inconvenient and dissents from the liberal line, here is the brunt of the intended action by the FCC as determined by the Federal Court of Appeals:

The Appellate Court vacated the FCC’s “anti-discrimination” and “anti-blocking” as essentially discriminatory and blocking in an attempt to again give the FCC political appointees the power to dictate what they believe is honest, equitable, and balanced.

Enlightening isn't it, that the court struck down the crux of the Commissions rule making as being exactly opposite of what they claimed it would be, we have crossed the Rubicon where our government is no long serving the interests of the people, but simply themselves and their hold on power. What we are witnessing is the seeds for the second American revolution where our government is being turned against the people and being used to consolidate power in the hands of the few that would turn this government into a totalitarian state under the oppression of a feckless tyrant like Obama. From Breitbart.
