The Net Neutrality Repeal Is Official.
Here’s How That Could Affect You.

New York Times, by Keith Collins

It’s official. The Federal Communications Commission’s repeal of net neutrality rules, which had required internet service providers to offer equal access to all web content, took effect on Monday. The rules, enacted by the administration of President Barack Obama in 2015, prohibited internet providers from charging more for certain content or from giving preferential treatment to certain websites. (Snip) Still, the repeal was a big win for Ajit Pai, the F.C.C.’s chairman, who has long opposed the regulations, saying they impeded innovation. He once said they were based on “hypothetical harms and hysterical prophecies

Comments:
Simply put, I can´t believe that 0bama did anything like this unless to pay back his big donors and find a hefty fee in some unnumbered account.

Before net Neutrality internet speeds were rising rapidly and costs were falling. Ads weren´t auto loading videos because ad servers had to pay for bandwidth. Companies like Google and Netflix had to either build and maintain servers for their content or pay those who do.
Since Net Neutrality, speeds have nearly flatlined and subscriber costs have steadily climbed.

The problem for the Libs is that “net neutrality” is in actuality Obamacare for the Internet.

If equal access to the internet is important to the NYT, then why do they limit how many articles that can be read per month? Equal for the rest of the web I suppose, just as long as they can restrict theirs.

I confess to ignorance. My geeky teenagers think net neutrality is important. It is more complicated than you think and the Orwellian name net neutrality is off-putting to me. Nonetheless, my geeky teenagers made some very good points and have left me undecided or at least considering that net neutrality might be a good thing.

Net Neutrality was thinly veiled censorship of conservative sites by the liberal media, everything else was just a smokescreen to hide that fact.

#10 I guess I am more ignorant than you think because I have read all sides of the argument and what I come away with is that Net Neutrality is a meaningless phrase thought up by liberals to use against conservatives. If you can explain it differently, then please do so.

The Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Hillary Clinton have a HUGE Weiner problem that is even bigger than we first realized. According to the recently released inspector general report, on September 28 and 29, 2016 the New York office of the FBI immediately reported to the Washington headquarters its discovery of, first, 141,000 and then 350,000 emails on the laptop of Anthony Weiner — also known as “Carlos Danger,” a now-convicted sex offender.

Throughout Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s massive report on the Hillary Clinton email investigation are lots of strange things. One of the weirdest is the extent to which the FBI went to make up words and phrases to disguise reality.An early draft of the 2016 FBI report on the email scandal was reportedly subjected to linguistic surgery to exonerate the former secretary of state, who at the time was the Democratic nominee for president. Clinton was originally found to be “grossly negligent” in using an illegal email server. That legalistic phrase is used by prosecutors to indict for violation of laws governing .

New York gubernatorial candidate and former “Sex and the City” star Cynthia Nixon on Thursday called U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) “a terrorist organization” and called for its abolition, pitting progressive New Yorkers against Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Nixon made her remarks at a church on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, where an illegal immigrant is taking sanctuary after being threatened with deportation after she failed to show a driver’s license during a traffic stop by ICE agents. “ICE has strayed so far away from its mission. It is supposed to be here to keep Americans safe but what it has turned into,

The Supreme Court on Friday put new restraints on law enforcement’s access to the ever-increasing amount of private information about Americans available in the digital age. In the specific case before the court, the justices ruled that authorities generally must obtain a warrant to gain access to cell-tower records that can provide a virtual timeline and map of a person’s whereabouts. Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. wrote the 5 to 4 decision, in which he was joined by the court’s liberal members.

"I Really Don´t Care. Do U?" When the first lady, Melania Trump, on a surprise humanitarian visit to a children’s shelter in Texas, strode onto her airplane in an olive green Zara army jacket with those words scrawled in faux white graffiti on the back, it sent the watching world into what might be called, with some understatement, a meltdown. (Snip) “It’s a jacket,” her communications director, Stephanie Grisham, said in a statement to reporters. “There was no hidden message.” She’s right, of course. It wasn’t hidden. It was literally written on the first lady’s back. The question is: Who was the intended audience?

Los Angeles/San Francisco - Electric car maker Tesla Inc’s move last week to cut 9 percent of its workforce will sharply downsize the residential solar business it bought two years ago in a controversial $2.6 billion (£1.96 billion) deal, according to three internal company documents and seven current and former Tesla solar employees. The latest cuts to the division that was once SolarCity - a sales and installation company founded by two cousins of Tesla CEO Elon Musk - include closing about a dozen installation facilities, according to internal company documents, and ending a retail partnership with Home Depot Inc

Washington - House Republicans will no longer vote on immigration legislation Friday after struggling to win enough support for a compromise proposal supported by President Trump and House leadership. House leadership emerged Thursday night from a closed-door session with GOP lawmakers and announced they’ll have to postpone the vote until next week. The delay is designed to whip up more support and add provisions to get holdouts on board. Ideas include adding e-verify for employers to check immigration status for workers and reforming agriculture visas from seasonal eligibility to yearlong in a nod to the dairy industry,

SEC Judge Appointments

Washington - The U.S. Supreme Court gave presidents more control over key jobs in federal agencies on Thursday, ruling that the way the Securities and Exchange Commission selected in-house judges who enforce investor protection laws violated the U.S. Constitution. The justices agreed with President Donald Trump’s administration that the SEC, in having low-level staff install administrative law judges, infringed upon powers given to the president in the U.S. Constitution’s “appointments clause” regarding the filling of certain federal posts. The ruling could reverberate through the federal government, which has nearly 2,000

Austin, TX - Patricia de Jesús Flores waited at a homeless shelter on the Mexican side of the U.S. border this week with her 7-year-old son, who she says witnessed a murder on a rooftop — one reason they left their home in Honduras. “If my country would be OK, I would be there happily with my child,” Flores told NBC News. "I would not try to cross." While forced family separations — which President Donald Trump on Wednesday announced he would end —was a new way by the administration of dealing with illegal immigration on the southern border, the violence, drug cartels, gangs and poverty ravaging Central America have

Taxes: Whatever you think about the issue of taxing internet sales, the simple fact is that the Supreme Court has just guaranteed that people across the country will now be paying more in state taxes. It´s hard for us to see how this is good news. In its 5-4 decision on South Dakota v. Wayfair, the court overturned two previous rulings that prevented states from taxing sales of out-of-state companies. That meant a catalog company based in Maine didn´t have to navigate 45 state sales-tax laws to figure out how much each customer owed, and then remit that money to the

How´s this for sneaky? Sen. John McCain, not too long after seeking conservative and Republican votes in his failed 2008 bid for the presidency, went right after those same conservative voters without telling them, by egging on the IRS to ruin them. It´s the sort of political back-stabbing that defies belief, taking an active role in destroying the Tea Party, which was an authentic grassroots movement of local groups calling for smaller government. But sure enough, Judicial Watch has found McCain´s central role right there in the documents: Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen.

The Bush family has a famously adversarial relationship with English. It became clear this week that at least one of them is also illiterate where U.S. history and immigration policy are concerned. This was demonstrated when former First Lady Laura Bush took to the pages of the Washington Post to denounce President Trump for enforcing a statute signed into law by her own husband, George W. Bush. Even worse, she compared the HHS facilities where the children of illegal immigrants are briefly housed to the infamous internment camps where Democrat icon FDR imprisoned 110,000 American citizens of Japanese descent.
