FCC Commissioner: Feds may come for Drudge
by Rudy Takala
(CNSNews.com) – Federal Communications Commission (FCC) member Ajit Pai said over the weekend that he foresees a future in which federal regulators will seek to regulate websites based on political content, using the power of the FCC or Federal Elections Commission (FEC). He also revealed that his opposition to “net neutrality” regulations had resulted in personal harassment and threats to his family.
However, Pai said it was only the beginning. In the future, he said, “I could easily see this migrating over to the direction of content… What you’re seeing now is an impulse not just to regulate the roads over which traffic goes, but the traffic itself.”
Continuing, he said, “It is conceivable to me to see the government saying, ‘We think the Drudge Report is having a disproportionate effect on our political discourse. He doesn’t have to file anything with the FEC. The FCC doesn’t have the ability to regulate anything he says, and we want to start tamping down on websites like that.’”
We’ve seen this already from the federal government, in terms of the IRS terrorizing Conservative groups with threats and actions not directed to any other political community.
“Is it unthinkable that some government agency would say the marketplace of ideas is too fraught with dissonance? That everything from the Drudge Report to Fox News… is playing unfairly in the online political speech sandbox? I don’t think so,” Pai said.
“The First Amendment means not just the cold parchment that’s in the Constitution. It’s an ongoing cultural commitment, and I sense that among a substantial number of Americans and a disturbing number of regulators here in Washington that online speech is [considered] a dangerous brave new world that needs to be regulated,” he concluded.
Those persons who are ignorant of the world surrounding them would be the first to say “that’s ridiculous, you’re paranoid. Nothing like that could ever happen in the US.”
In response I’d say: “it’s already happened. Where were you?”
Why do you think there is such a push to eliminate the Second Amendment by the federal government, to onerously regulate firearms and ammunition?
Because without the ability to defend ourselves on a civilian level, the federal government, any government, can lay rules and regulations on a population that has no ability to fight back in any manner.
Let me provide further clarity: the Second Amendment, as some think, doesn’t exist solely to enable people to go hunting if they wish. It exists to keep the populace safe from an overbearing government.
The Obama Regime is leaving in a few years, thank the Lord. But if another Demorat steps in, you’ll find your fundamental rights challenged once more. If that occurs, this nation could very well erupt in a fashion no one wants to see or consider.
These things are occurring right here, right now, in the United States of America, ladies and gentlemen.
Pass the word.

While Oregon Democrats stood with Gabby Giffords and the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence to push expanded background checks on April 1, Grant County Sheriff Glenn Palmer stood for the law-abiding citizens whom the checks will target by describing the gun control push as “borderline treasonous.”
Palmer also made clear that if the Democrats pass the measure there is zero chance of his office enforcing it.
County Sheriffs with balls.
Someone has to have them, in law enforcement.
Because Chiefs of Police certainly don’t have them.
And let there be no mistake.
Why are all of these issues and topics being pushed and steamrollered all at once?
I submit: easy. Because the current Obama Administration and what the Leftists believe will be the next Clinton Administration are in the process of, yes, fundamentally transforming this nation into what they believe will be, finally, the new global paradigm of Socialism.
Each Socialist regime believes that it can “do” Socialism much better than their predecessor — if only they were given the opportunity. Never mind that Socialism has never worked for any country at any time in the entire history of this planet.
Obama and fellow Leftist Demorats believe they can “do” Socialism better than anyone else — despite the fact that Socialism isn’t working for Europe.
Question: what do you call doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results?
Of course you know that answer.

As promised, President Obama is using executive actions to impose gun control on the nation, targeting the top-selling rifle in the country, the AR-15 style semi-automatic, with a ban on one of the most-used AR bullets by sportsmen and target shooters.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives this month revealed that it is proposing to put the ban on 5.56 mm ammo on a fast track, immediately driving up the price of the bullets and prompting retailers, including the huge outdoors company Cabela’s, to urge sportsmen to urge Congress to stop the president.
The question is: will Congress do it? And will they have the cojones to actually move against the president’s imperial actions via BATFE?
“The Obama administration was unable to ban America’s most popular sporting rifle through the legislative process, so now it’s trying to ban commonly owned and used “ammunition through regulation,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director of the NRA-ILA, the group’s policy and lobby shop. “The NRA and our tens of millions of supporters across the country will fight to stop President Obama’s latest attack on our Second Amendment freedoms.”
At issue is so-called “armor-piercing” ammunition, an exemption for those bullets mostly used for sport by AR-15 owners, and the recent popularity of pistol-style ARs that use the ammo.
This AP ammunition, because it was (past tense) so plentiful, is popular with American shooters. You’ll notice, Leftists, per the top photo, these are not “dum-dum” or “hollow point” rounds.
The inexpensive 5.56 M885 ammo, commonly called green tips, have been exempt for years, as have higher-caliber ammunition that also easily pierces the type of soft armor worn by police, because it’s mostly used by target shooters, not criminals. The agency proposes to reclassify it as armor-piercing and not exempt.

This is, frankly, an excuse for the proverbial “foot-in-the-door” trick. The goal? To chip away at the Second Amendment in the US Bill of Rights.
Why the push to regulate the internet? Why the push to eliminate firearms?
It’s all about control and the elimination of pushback, opposition to policies that people believe to be Socialist in nature. Eliminate the Second Amendment and you can readily eliminate the First Amendment.
I’m a cop; at least for a few more months until I retire. And there isn’t a rifle round that already won’t go through my vest, from .223 to .308 and most all points in between. How about some graphics?
If you can’t eliminate the firearms, eliminate their ability to shoot.

California’s gun laws are among the nation’s strictest, but a looming decision in a federal lawsuit could effectively ban handguns altogether in the Golden State, according to plaintiffs who want a judge to toss out a state law requiring all new handguns to be equipped with technology that “stamps” each shell casing with a traceable mark.
The problem with the “microstamping” law, which was signed into law by then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2007 but only took effect in 2013, is that it relies on an unworkable technology, according to gun manufacturers and attorneys for the Second Amendment Foundation and Calguns Foundation. If guns without the technology can’t be sold in California, and gun manufacturers can’t implement the technology, the law is, for practical purposes, a handgun ban that violates the Second Amendment, goes the argument.
Thanks Arnold, you blubbering, steroid-ridden baboon. And all with an (R) at the back of your name, as in (R)apist, for screwing over our Second Amendment.
“This is about the state trying to eliminate the handgun market,” said Alan Gura, the lead attorney in Pena v. Lindley, filed on behalf of the Second Amendment Foundation and Calguns Foundation against the Chief of the California Department of Justice Bureau of Firearms. “The evidence submitted by the manufacturers shows this is science fiction and there is not a practical way to implement the law.
It’s the same reason Ronnie Barrett refuses to sell or service his .50 caliber BMG rifles any more in California, whether they are held by private owners or law enforcement agencies. Ruger has already stopped selling semi-automatic handguns in Fornicalia.
Since the law took effect in 2013, no manufacturer has made a new firearm that complies with the requirement.Two major manufacturers, Smith & Wesson and Sturm, Ruger & Co., announced last year they would stop selling new firearms in the California market, and blamed the microstamping law. The technology has been demonstrated, but gunmakers say requirements that each new model, or even modification, must be re-tested for compliance makes the entire scheme unworkable.
When you, as a Leftist, hate guns, fear guns, and detest the thought of them in the hands of private citizens, you do your very best to eliminate them by any means possible.
This all dovetails. Why is there a push to control the internet? To silence DC pushback on various Leftist plans. Why is there a continuing and unrelenting tsunami to take guns from American citizens? Because, as with the internet, when you silence citizens you eliminate pushback. How do you guarantee the average citizen cannot “push back” against the government? You eliminate the Second Amendment.
Because when you eliminate the Second Amendment you will, by extension, help to eliminate the First Amendment.
Then you truly do have Serfs, Proles and Groundlings in the United States of America.
The Second Amendment doesn’t exist to protect hunters. If you believe that, you are a complete fool.
See anything like that recently?
