Congressional Anti-Internet Freedom Bills- by Stephen Lendman

Congressional hard-liners want to end Internet freedom.

Net Neutrality is the last frontier of press freedom. With it, consumers have open access to an array of equipment, content, applications and service, free from corporate control. Public interest groups want it preserved. Giant telecom and cable companies want control to:

  • establish toll roads, or premium lanes; 

  • charge extra for speed and free and easy access;

  • control content to stifle dissent and independent thought; 

  • co-opt this essential public space for profit; and

  • subvert digital and political democracy.

As a candidate, Barack Obama promised to "(s)upport the principle of network neutrality to preserve the benefits of open competition on the Internet."

Obama made lots of promises he broke, notably not delivering promised change. Instead, he's been the standard bearer for corrupt political/business as usual, elevating it to more extreme levels at home and abroad.

He governs more like a crime boss in league with Wall Street, America's military industrial complex profiteers, and other corporate favorites.

He systematically spurns democratic values, freedoms, and rule of law principles. Betraying working Americans, he implemented austerity, not vital aid when most needed in hard times.

He ignores growing poverty, hunger, homelessless and despair. 

He champions expanded militarism, imperial wars, and state-sponsored terrorism.

He praises murdering American citizens abroad in cold blood. Anwar al-Awlaki broke no laws, but never got due process to explain. He was killed for opposing US imperial lawlessness globally. That perhaps also makes millions at home targets.

He systematically spurns fundamental human and civil rights.

He supports open-ended banker bailouts, other generous corporate handouts, and tax cuts for super-rich elites already with too much.
