Anoth­er wild pow­er-grab. Pow­er with­out account­abil­i­ty.  The net is the very last fron­tier for free speech.

— Despite google algo­rithms that con­sis­tent­ly ren­der — day in day out, year in year out — always ren­der left-wing sites on  first page search results;
— Despite fil­ters that block my site and sites like mine (Jihad Watch, The Reli­gion of Peace, Creep­ing Sharia, Sharia Unveiled, et al) at work, school, and even US army bases and gov­ern­ment agen­cies;
— Despite search engines refus­ing to include news sites like mine in the news search­es;
— Despite the fact that the main­stream broad­cast and print media, with the excep­tion of the tepid Fox News, are noto­ri­ous­ly left;
— Despite the fact that we are a mere fly buzzing around the mam­moth head of the main­stream media;
— Despite the fact that they should win by over­whelm­ing num­bers because it’s David vs. Goliath;
They fail, because their ideas fail.

Which is why they must destroy us.

The issue is not slav­ery for a “good” cause ver­sus slav­ery for a “bad” cause; the issue is not dic­ta­tor­ship by a “good” gang ver­sus dic­ta­tor­ship by a “bad” gang. The issue is free­dom ver­sus dic­ta­tor­ship.” — Ayn Rand

FCC Chair Refus­es to Tes­ti­fy before Con­gress ahead of Net Neu­tral­i­ty Vote, The Cor­ner, Feb­ru­ary 25, 2015
by Andrew John­son Feb­ru­ary 25, 2015 (thanks to Van)

Two promi­nent House com­mit­tee chairs are “deeply dis­ap­point­ed” in Fed­er­al Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Com­mis­sion chair­man Tom Wheel­er for refus­ing to tes­ti­fy before Con­gress as “the future of the Inter­net is at stake.” Wheeler’s refusal to go before the House Over­sight Com­mit­tee on Wednes­day comes on the eve of the FCC’s vote on new Inter­net reg­u­la­tions per­tain­ing to net neu­tral­i­ty. The committee’s chair­man, Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Jason Chaf­fetz (R., Utah), and Ener­gy and Com­merce Com­mit­tee chair­man Fred Upton (R., Mich.) crit­i­cized Wheel­er and the admin­is­tra­tion for lack­ing trans­paren­cy on the issue. “So long as the chair­man con­tin­ues to insist on secre­cy, we will con­tin­ue call­ing for more trans­paren­cy and account­abil­i­ty at the com­mis­sion,” Chaf­fetz and Upton said in a state­ment. “Chair­man Wheel­er and the FCC are not above Con­gress.” The vote on the new Inter­net reg­u­la­tions is sched­uled for Thurs­day. The FCC’s two Repub­li­can com­mis­sion­ers have asked Wheel­er to delay the vote to allow more time for review. The changes would allow the com­mis­sion to reg­u­late the Inter­net like a pub­lic util­i­ty, set­ting new stan­dards that require the pro­vi­sion of equal access to all online con­tent.
