n a vote along party lines, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approved what amounts to a government takeover of the Internet. FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler and his fellow Democrats, Mignon Clyburn and Jessica Rosenworcel, approved placing the Internet under Title II regulations.
They will reclassify broadband as a telecommunications service, and regulate Internet Service Providers (ISPs) like utility companies, or “common carriers,” rather than “information services” that remain outside the agency’s regulatory power. Republican commissioners Ajit Pai and Michael O’Rielly dissented, with Pai explaining that net neutrality is “a solution that won’t work to a problem that doesn’t exist.”Read more
This week, the media broke news that former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said, at an event attended by prospective Republican presidential candidate Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, that he does not believe President Barack Obama “loves America.”
This isn’t news. Barack Obama doesn’t love free enterprise, believes founding philosophy was fatally flawed and sees the American people as rubes with antiquated religious and racist tendencies. Sure, we can all agree that Obama likely loves America’s scenery; perhaps he loves America, but doesn’t like her very much. But that’s not what Giuliani was talking about, and everyone knows it.Read more
On Sunday, posters linking the notorious student group Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) with Jew-hatred and acts of Palestinian brutality were found posted at several locations on the UCLA campus, as well as other campuses nationally. The posters were removed by campus police and some students.
One poster depicted the body of a lifeless Palestinian civilian being dragged through the streets of Gaza by Hamas operatives while tethered to a motorcycle. Another depicted a bound and hooded Palestinian on his knees, flanked by AK-47-toting Hamas terrorists, just moments away from his summary execution. The name “Students for Justice in Palestine” featured prominently on the posters, along with the fitting hashtag, #JewHaters.Read more
Last Sunday, students on the campuses of UCLA, UC Irvine, Drake University, the University of Virginia, DePaul, and UMass Amherst encounteredFreedom Center-sponsored posters depicting the nationwide campus group Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) as being complicit in Jew-hatred and Arab terror. It was an eye-opening act of guerrilla activism against an organization that should be officially labeled a hate group.
One of the two types of posters depicts a photograph of what appear to be a pair of masked, armed Arab militants looming over a kneeling man with a bag over his head – presumably a hapless informant or Israeli sympathizer. The text reads, “Students for Justice in Palestine” with the hashtag “#JewHaters” at the bottom. The same text appears on the other poster, a photo of a half-naked corpse being dragged along behind a motorcycle, an obvious reference to this instance of Hamas dragging the body of a suspected Israeli sympathizer through the streets of Gaza City.Read more
