Verizon Just Destroyed The
Case For ´Net Neutrality´

Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff

Regulations: Verizon started letting people sign up for its new wireless 5G Home high-speed internet service this week. It doesn´t just mark the start of the next internet revolution. It obliterates the case for net-neutrality regulations. On Tuesday, Verizon said that people can start signing up now for its 5G Home, with service starting on Oct. 1 in Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles and Sacramento, Calif. Speeds will, the company says, be as fast as 1 Gbps, which is about as fast as Verizon´s FIOS gets. It´s more than 10 times faster than what the average home gets today. What´s different

At the moment I use Xfinity because no one else in South Florida can provide a faster internet. The downside is that I am also tied in to their expensive cable tv packages. I would love to cut the cable and go with something like Youtube Tv. Going totally wireless and getting high speed IS the future. Hope I live long enough.

At the end of the article, after speaking about how government regulations have previously stifled innovation, the author says the following: "Why innovators like Google and Facebook can´t understand any of this is a complete mystery."

There is no mystery. They fully understand it and want government regulations to stifle innovation because, now that they have gotten to the top, innovation is more likely to hurt them than to help them.

The only case that ever existed for net neutrality was that under it Google, Netflix, and a few others got a free ride at the expense of internet users.

It will take decades to wire (fiber) the whole country: about as long as it takes technology to advance by leaps and gigabits.

No one has assessed the health impact of widespread wireless 5G. In NY I have wired 5G on Fios.

From what I´ve read, it´s effects are a lot different than standard wireless speeds. I´d like to wait on this one.

Comcast is best at raising prices continuously. How else can they fund all of their purchases? Anti-trust, fraud, etc, is they name, Comcast. Ma Bell was broken up into 5 baby Bells. It´s time to break up Comcast and Amazon.

Yes, The Deep State Is Real — And
Working To Undermine Our Nation

Deep State: For those who doubt the existence of the so-called Deep State, recent unsettling news provides more than ample proof it exists. Indeed, not only does the Deep State exist, it´s far more dangerous to Americans´ liberties than first thought. President Trump earlier this week said that he would release a trove of documents related to the Russia investigation and declassify their contents. Included are 21 pages taken from a June 2017 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) application used to spy on former Trump aide Carter Page. Along with those pages,

Supreme Court: Moments after Christine Blasey Ford said she´d gladly testify about her accusations against Brett Kavanaugh, she changed her mind and started demanding an FBI investigation first. It looks as though Ford, who first wanted to remain anonymous, now hopes to torpedo Kavanaugh´s Supreme Court nomination without having to answer questions under oath. Republicans can´t let it happen. On Monday morning, the Today show directly asked Ford´s attorney, Debra Katz, if Ford was "willing to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee, publicly, and tell this story." Katz gave a definitive answer: "She is.

Media Bias: When not complaining about President Trump´s attacks on the news media, the press keeps publishing fake news stories about Trump. Case in point is the recent Washington Post "bombshell" story that the Trump administration was denying passports to Latinos. The nearly 2,000-word Post story, which ran on August 29, made the explosive charge that the Trump administration was systematically denying passports to Latin-Americans along the border, accusing them of using fraudulent birth certificates. The story got huge pick up by other news outlets. But was riddled with errors.

Minimum-Wage Hikes:
Economic Poison For Venezuela

Socialism: If you believe minimum-wage hikes actually make workers better off, maybe you should consider the case of Venezuela. There, a frantic series of minimum-wage hikes have led not to higher wages, but business closures, mass layoffs and widespread misery. Minimum-wage hikes enjoy widespread popularity here in the U.S., despite overwhelming evidence from both experience and academic studies that they have an economically pernicious impact. By artificially raising the price of labor, politicians merely encourage businesses to replace labor with machines

Last-Minute Attack On Kavanaugh Is

Dirty Politics: It´s hard to know what to make of the last-second charge against Judge Brett Kavanaugh about an event that allegedly occurred 36 years ago. What is crystal clear is the message Democrats are sending to conservatives. "We will do whatever it takes to destroy you." Based on what we know at the moment, the claim made by Christine Blasey Ford is troubling, but not necessarily because of what she alleges happened when she was a high school sophomore. First, there´s the timing.

Eliminationist Rhetoric: What will it take before virulent Trump-haters admit that their increasingly violent rhetoric is putting lives in danger? Attacks on Republicans over the past few days show that the time for the left´s reckoning is drawing near. In case you haven´t heard — which would not be surprising, given the general media blackout on such events — attacks on Republicans are increasing and increasingly dangerous. In just the past few days: A California resident attacked California GOP congressional candidate Rudy Peters with a switchblade. Witnesses said the assailant

Growth: Barack Obama is on the road attempting to claim credit for the booming economy under President Trump. But the only thing Obama deserves credit for is making it easy for Trump to undo Obama´s anti-growth policies. Let´s see if we have this right. For eight years, President Obama presided over the worst economic recovery in modern times. For six years, he blamed Republicans in Congress for thwarting his spending agenda and hampering growth.

Are. You. Kidding. Me? It´s been a mere month since Tesla (TSLA) CEO Elon Musk´s unvetted tweet on taking his company private — based on apparently imaginary "secured" funding — that sent its board and the Securities and Exchange Commission scrambling. And even less time since Musk´s unvarnished admission to the New York Times that he faced a choice between "Ambien and no sleep" — in an interview in which he also found himself having to defend himself against charges that he was smoking marijuana (and that his reference to a $420 buyout price was a nod to "weed" culture).

Unmasking Obama: Barack Obama is making headlines for blasting President Donald Trump in hopes that it will rally Democrats in November. What´s being ignored is the fact that Obama also revealed his affinity for extreme left-wing Democrats. Obama sharply broke with tradition by launching a blistering attack on his successor to the White House in a speech at the University of Illinois on Friday. He said Trump was a "threat to our democracy," talked about the "crazy stuff coming out of this White House," and called for the "restoration of honesty and decency and lawfulness in government."

Jobs: With 201,000 new jobs created, unemployment remained just above its all-time low at 3.9% in August. Meanwhile, wages shot up by a faster-than-expected 2.9% for blue-collar and low-wage workers, the fastest in nine years. Great news, right? Not for some. African-American unemployment at 6.3% equaled its second-lowest level ever. Asians and Hispanics, likewise, are at or near all-time lows for unemployment. It´s boom times for the bottom rungs of the ladder, who suffered disproportionately during the financial crisis. Meanwhile, on Thursday, the government reported that jobless claims fell to 203,000, their lowest level in 49 years.

Useless Degrees: A good indication of a tightening labor market is the fact that several major corporations have dropped their college degree requirements. College just became an even bigger waste of time and money for many. Job recruiting site Glassdoor recently reported that companies like Google, Apple, IBM, Bank of America no longer require that applicants have a college degree. Neither do companies like Costco, Whole Foods, Publix, Chipotle, Home Depot, Starbucks. (Does it really take a college degree to know how roll a burrito, pour coffee, or stack giant jars of mayonnaise?)

Tuesday night, her attorneys sent a letter to Chairman Chuck Grassley explaining their client´s hesitation. They claim that the committee was trying make Ford testify at the same table as Kavanaugh.

Eviscerating Kavanaugh: Sen. Feinstein,
have you no sense of decency?

Watching the slow, public evisceration of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by Senate Democrats —on the strength of one unsubstantiated charge of alleged sexual aggression 36 years ago when Kavanaugh was in high school — a question comes to mind: Have you no sense of decency, Sen. Feinstein? Decency was once an important feature of the Democratic Party’s story. Long before Bork became a verb, long before Clarence Thomas was dragged through the mud because a conservative black man proved a profound threat to Democrats, the party held fast to the notion of decency.

Since high school keg parties at the elite prep schools attended by Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey are now a matter of consuming interest to the Democrat-media complex, it is perhaps telling that the high school yearbooks of Holton Arms, the school attended by Blasey, have been scrubbed from the web. The blog Cult of the First Amendment says: On Monday Sept. 17th, Christine Blasey Ford’s high school yearbooks suddenly disappeared from the web. I read them days before, knew they would be scrubbed, and saved them.

Hillary Clinton on Tuesday predicted that President Trump will "wholesale fire people" following November´s midterm elections. "After this election, this president is going to wholesale fire people," Clinton said during an interview on MSNBC´s "The Rachel Maddow Show." Predicting that Trump will "be even more uncontrollable and unaccountable" following the results, Clinton argued that the president will fire people who he believes are "undermining him" and "questioning him." "The president is close to being uncontrollable," she continued. In the wide-ranging interview, Clinton also discussed the recent controversy

A lawyer for Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who has alleged Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when the two of them were in high school, said in a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee that Blasey is willing to testify before lawmakers as soon as next week, but ruled out Monday, the date the committee had scheduled for a hearing. In an email to committee staffers obtained by CBS News, Ford´s lawyer Debra Katz wrote that Ford "wishes to testify, provided that we can agree on terms that are fair and which ensure her safety.

The Deep State is in an obvious panic mode since President Donald Trump ordered a number of documents relating to the Russia investigation be declassified. Joining the loud choir of those who are pushing for insubordination against the president is former CIA Director John Brennan. (Photo) Appearing on MSNBC on Tuesday, Brennan urged people in the intelligence community to ignore the president’s order. The former CIA head was stripped of his security clearance by Trump in August for his bizarre behavior. “A number of individuals are trying to protect Mr. Trump and abusing their authorities and their powers, whether it

Sen.

A nation gawks as Washington sinks deeper into the muck, but put aside your disgust long enough to digest what we’re seeing. Three big things are on display. First, Democrats are proving again that their force multiplier is a win-or-die zealotry. They were on a mission to kill anybody President Trump chose to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy and, within minutes of Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination, Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer announced he would fight Kavanaugh “with everything I have.” All 10 Dems on the Judiciary Committee pledged to vote no.
