Where were these people in 2014 when the same thing happened with the Title II
"This is crazy. Two million people have had their identities stolen in an
effort to corrupt our public record. Nineteen State Attorneys General from
across the country have asked us to delay this vote so they can investigate.
First, exactly what are they going to investigate?
How do you backtrace Internet submissions that are being spoofed? And how much
should the states spend to investigate something on which they have no legal
Second, what relevance to the proceeding and the final report and order did
these submission have?
Clearly the FCC did not base the record in the 2015 proceeding on the millions
of popular votes submitted in that proceeding. They did what they were told by
Obama and a rogue court backed them up, claiming it had the authority to
reverse the 2005 Brand-X Supreme Court decision.
It is equally clear that the Pai FCC did not consider the spam this time - it
is irrelevant to the process.
The process is driven by real submissions that address the issues in the NPRM,
with full documentation of each submission used to discuss the issues.
Obviously Bert has not read the text of the Order that will be voted on today,
or he would know better than to claim that spam should be considered in these

Heh. Problem is, the corrupted public record is not the problem. The corrupt
FCC is ignoring the public record, to instead do the bidding of three or four
Thanks Bert. I think you may finally be getting it. The FCC is responding to
the valid submissions to the public record, from both supported and opponents.
This is obvious if you would take the time to read the order.
What is happening today is NO DIFFERENT than what happened in 2014-15. It’s
just a case of which special interests were favored then versus now.
Just to be fair, however, what if the result of this proceeding is that no
special interest is favored over another?
What if competition is allowed to deal with these issues, as it did for nearly
two decades? As it did with the revolution in wireless communications in the
U.S. AFTER deregulation.
The vote is a foregone conclusion. That's why it is imperative that the
courts do their job, to stymie the best efforts of this corrupt, banana
No problem. But FIRST, let the Supreme Court rule on the legality of the 2015
Title II order. If the High Court validates the Title II decision made by the
District and Appeals courts, then we can talk about litigating today’s order.
It boggles the mind, how such an agency can have become so utterly
counterproductive, in such a short span of time.
For the most part, the agency has been counterproductive “to the public
interest,” since 1934, protecting the special interests it regulates, and
picking technology winners and losers.
The communications business is more competitive today than at any time in U.S.
history, with major technical and economic benefits flowing to consumers. The
fact that this FCC is beginning to dismantle nearly a century of heavy handed
regulation, so that we can build upon the deregulatory success of the past
three decades is the real story here.
The U-turn that Obama ordered in 2014 is the exception - it did NOTHING the
protect net neutrality. It just gave the edge providers a huge competitive
benefit over the ISPs.
The Chairman needs to be reined in, or sacked, for malfeasance.
Courts, do the right thing. And soon.
The Chairman is doing his job, and rather well in my opinion. I do not expect
Bert to agree.
And as soon as today’s order is published in the Federal Register, the age old
process of making communications lawyers and lobbyists rich, will be on full
display as they file their lawsuits...
