The Private Sector Is Yet Again Rushing to Save Us from Government

What Did Government Use for Light Before Candles? Electricity

 

The answer to everything even remotely policy-related – is less government.

Because the original sin of everything even remotely policy-related – is too much government.

Want to solve our health care “crisis” – ???  Undo the original government sins.

After World War II – taxes were kept at during-WW II levels.  So in an end run around this too much government – the private sector started offering employees untaxed “benefits”…including health insurance.

Post-WW II set up a bizarre, antithetical-to-Reality system…where health insurance isn’t tied to the person – it’s tied to the person’s employer.  Which is inherently very stupid.

Post-WW II set up a bizarre, antithetical-to-Reality system…where health insurance stopped being a catastrophic policy, and started paying for EVERY encounter with a health care provider.

Car insurance pays when you wrap your car around a tree.  Imagine how stupid and expensive it would be – if they were paying for everything up to and including oil changes and windshield wipers.

Post-WW II also set up a bizarre, antithetical-to-Reality third-party-payer system.  The doctor and patient are in the room negotiating services and terms – the guy picking up the tab is not.

Which guarantees skyrocketing prices and costs.  Because human nature.

A buyer wants to buy as much as he can.

A seller wants to sell as much as he can – for as much as he can.

The check and balance upon these billions of daily commercial exchanges – is the buyer’s wallet.

The buyer wants to conserve his coin – so he perpetually looks for the best deals.

The seller wants to sell – so he and the buyer negotiate mutually agreeable deals.

If the guy picking up the tab isn’t involved in the process – price is no object.  And things quickly get REALLY crazy.

Seven decades of third-party-payer health insurance later – things have become really, REALLY crazy.

You want more government further screwing up health care?  There’s plenty, you know.

Medicare, for instance.  You know, the third-party-payer government health care plan for senior citizens.

Medicare is currently at least $40 trillion short.

Medicare doesn’t actually completely cover seniors – so the private sector has to backstop the government.  Medigap, anyone?

And Medicare actually pays medical providers ridiculously low rates for medical goods and services.  So since Medicare’s inception – medical providers have been price-shifting to the private sector.  Charging the private sector much, MUCH more – to subsidize the government.

Steadfastly impervious to facts, Leftists everywhere want to murder private health insurance – and force feed us all into Medicare’s bankrupt, gaping maw.  Medicare for All – is medical care for none.

The solution to this titanic government-caused mess – is less government.  Not more – less.

Allow people to purchase policies in any of the fifty states.

Equalize the government’s treatment of individual-purchased and employer-provided insurance.

And begin to roll back the government’s third-party-payer involvement in…everything.

Another area where government keeps rigidly insisting on inserting itself – is the Internet.

The Internet is perhaps the most successful endeavor in human history.  Nothing has grown bigger, better and faster.

The federal government did in fact create the Internet.  And for decades, it just sat there – inert…gathering dust.

Until the 1990s.  When the government privatized the Internet.  At which point – KABOOM.

United States’ private Internet Service Providers (ISPs) spent the next quarter century investing $1+ trillion dollars building the networks.  Taking us from 14k dial-up snail speeds – to multiple gigabyte hyper speeds.

Which paved the way for millions of other companies to invest trillions of additional dollars creating and developing…everything we know on the Web.  And a whole lot of stuff we don’t.  (It’s a BIG Internet.)

Government controlling the Internet – kept it an unknown, unused bit of nothing.  For decades.

The private sector handling the Internet – created the free speech-free market Xanadu we all know and love today.

Steadfastly impervious to facts, Leftists everywhere want to roll back this titanic private sector success – and revert to a government-controlled Internet.

They want to re-impose the very ridiculous Network Neutrality.  Which an avowed Marxist describes thus:

“At the moment, the battle over network neutrality is not to completely eliminate the telephone and cable companies. We are not at that point yet. But the ultimate goal is to get rid of the media capitalists in the phone and cable companies and to divest them from control.”

How very Venezuela of them.

To “get rid of the media capitalists in the phone and cable companies and to divest them from control” – you need government Internet as a replacement.

Which Leftists have already long been funding.  How’s that been going?  Remarkably like government health care.

Broadband Boondoggles: A Map of Failed Taxpayer-Funded Networks:

“For decades, local governments have made promises of faster and cheaper broadband networks.

“Unfortunately, these municipal networks often don’t deliver or fail, leaving taxpayers to foot the bill.

“Explore the map to learn about the massive debt, waste and broken promises left behind by these failed government networks.”

One of the angles Leftists attempt to work in defense of their government Internet efforts – is the lack of Internet access in America’s rural areas.

For those of you who are government school victims – the United States is a VERY large place.  Reaching the US’s very many uber-rural areas with uber-fast Internet – ain’t easy.

That being said, this alleged problem – is already exceedingly overblown:

“(T)he (Federal Communications Commission) FCC still bizarrely only counts a hardline (terrestrial fixed) Internet connection as a connection.  Meaning buried cables criss-crossing America – all the way into your abode.

“But nearly everyone in America has a 4G (Fourth Generation) wireless smartphone. On which you can seamlessly stream High Definition (HD) video – the most bandwidth intensive thing currently to do on the Internet.  (And we’re but a few years away from exponentially-faster-5G).

“And then there is Satellite Internet – for the remaining very few who are bereft of both wired and cellular wireless.

“And those…speeds that serve as the FCC minimum?  They are WAY faster than 98+% of Americans currently need.

“The Truth About Faster Internet: It’s Not Worth It:

“‘Typical U.S. households don’t use most of their bandwidth while streaming and get marginal gains from upgrading speeds.’

“So even while streaming High Definition (HD) video – the most bandwidth intensive thing currently to do on the Internet – ‘typical U.S. households don’t use most of their bandwidth.’

“In other words – just about everyone in America has more-than-sufficient access to the Internet.”

As just mentioned, government has for decades been trying to replicate private ISPs.  And as just mentioned – has been perpetually, miserably failing.

And wait: Here come’s the private sector – yet again riding to the government’s rescue.  And all the rest of us too.  Via the aforementioned 5G wireless network:

“(T)he 5G wireless network – is going to blow the doors off of even the existing, massive private sector success.

“And thereby blow an even larger hole in the Left’s demands for government Internet.

“How 5G Will Solve Rural Broadband:

“‘Starting with advanced versions of 4G LTE and then continuing with 5G, wireless technologies will not only displace many wireline endpoints in dense population areas, but also in low population density areas, including rural areas….

“‘The cost advantage of wireless connections is overwhelming.

“‘A spokesperson for the Wireless ISP Association (WISPA) estimates that a wireless connection to a rural endpoint costs one-fifth to one-tenth of a wireline connection….

“Translation from Tech-to-English:

“The Left’s idea to get into the government into the broadband business – is currently very stupid and dishonest.

“Thanks to the private sector.

“And the Left’s idea to get the government into the broadband business – is about to get exponentially stupider and more dishonest.

“Thanks to the private sector.”

Because service to every single nook and cranny of the United States – is about to get massively faster wireless Internet service.

Thanks to the private sector.

Yet again saving us from government.

And yet again saving government from itself.

Trump Is Correct on Net Neutrality Court Win – But That Wasn’t the Whole Ruling

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-10-07-at-11.16.35-AM Trump Is Correct on Net Neutrality Court Win – But That Wasn’t the Whole Ruling wireless Wired Web Search washington D.C. Technology technolgy Section 230 satellite progressives Privacy Politics Policy News network neutrality Net Neutrality law Internet of Things Internet Government Google Global Warming Front Page Stories Front Page Foreign Policy Economy Climate Change Climate China California Business & Economy 5g 4G

President Donald Trump early Monday morning Tweeted:

“We just WON the big court case on Net Neutrality Rules! A great win for the future and speed of the internet. Will lead to many big things including 5G. Congratulations to the FCC and its Chairman, Ajit Pai!”

All of which is absolutely correct.

The US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit did in fact rule the Trump Administration’s decision to undo the Barack Obama Administration’s unilateral, illegal imposition of the ridiculous Network Neutrality – was Constitutional and legal.

The courts upholding the Trump Administration restoring order – after lawless Obama Administration illegal, unilateral power grabs – is by no means a fait d’acomppli.

Appeals Court Upholds Block on Trump’s Attempt to End DACA

The Obama Administration – under its unilateral, illegal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) – declared ill-defined, amorphous amnesty from prosecution for millions of illegal aliens.

Somehow, multiple clowns in gowns have ruled the Trump Administration’s attempt to revert to immigration law actually passed by our elected Congress – is illegal.  The courts – are thereby codifying the Obama Administration’s lawlessness.

So we are thankful for the DC Circuit’s excellent tether to Constitutional sanity with its Net Neutrality rollback ruling.

Most unfortunately, the Court left open a hole huge enough for a Leftist caravan to roll on through:

“The federal appeals court’s decision upheld the FCC’s reclassification of broadband Internet access service as an information service, rather than as a telecommunications service, but argued that states can pass their own net neutrality legislation.”

Emphasis ours – because that is a TERRIBLE ruling:

“This…(is) a clear violation of the (Constitution’s) Commerce Clause:

‘[The Congress shall have Power] To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes.’

“The Commerce Clause was – like all of the Constitution – a government-limiting entry. It was written to prevent states from big-government-imposing barriers to interstate commerce.

“How to Understand the Commerce Clause in One Simple Sentence:

“‘Congress has the authority to regulate trade between the states; or in other words, the process of goods and services moving from one state to another. Not the products themselves. Not the process of creating those products. Just the act of the products moving from state to state. That’s it.’

“Get that eminent simplicity?

“Let us…focus on the ‘trade between the states…(and) the process of goods and services moving from one state to another.’

“Bits on the Internet – criss-cross state and international borders hundreds of millions of times a second.

“To think that a single U.S. state here or there has the prerogative to regulate something that is so obviously a Commerce-Clause-federal-responsibility – is warped, ideological nonsense.

“It violates both the letter and the spirit of the deregulatory Commerce Clause.

“Because it exponentially grows government.”

Indeed it does.  To trained lawyers appointed as judges – all of this should be quite obvious:

“(T)he WORLD Wide Web is clearly a federal government issue.  The Feds determine our nation’s Internet policy.  And then The Feds negotiate Internet interactions with other nations.”

The federal government cannot successfully do that – if its policy is incessantly being exceeded or undercut by a state here or there.

State-by-State Net Neutrality Laws Breakdown:

“More than half of states in America are opposing the FCC’s ‘Internet Freedom’ bill with local Net Neutrality state laws.”

Washington Governor Signs First State Net Neutrality Bill

California’s Net Neutrality Bill Is Back and as Tough as Ever:

“‘This will be the most comprehensive and the strongest net neutrality protection in the United States, where we are restoring what we lost when Donald Trump’s FCC obliterated net neutrality,’ (Democrat state Senator Scott) Wiener told reporters….”

So the DC Circuit Court’s ruling – undercuts its ruling.

Their Honors ruled the Trump Administration can restore order – until the many states destroy order.

Internet Service Providers (ISPs) – will be forced to deal with an insane patchwork quilt of fifty different Net Neutrality regulatory regimes.

Complying with this nightmare mess – is going to cost ISPs a LOT of time and money.

Time and money I’d rather them spend – on increasing speeds and decreasing prices.

The federal government will have to take this titanic mishmash of fifty-state-regime Brunswick Stew (a dish famous for containing any and everything).  And try to cobble together a semi-coherent federal policy.  So as to try to incorporate our Internet – with the rest of the planet’s Internet.

Are you familiar with the expression…?

A Camel Is a Horse Designed by a Committee:

“An expression critical of committees – or by analogy, group decision-making – by emphasizing the ineffectiveness of incorporating too many conflicting opinions into a single project through compromise.

“In this figure of speech, the distinguishing features of a camel, such as its humps and poor temperament, are taken to be the deformities that resulted from its poor design.”

Imagine a REALLY surly camel – with fifty different humps.

That will be US Internet policy.

An incoherent mess.  Caused by federal officials having to constantly look over their shoulders for fifty different, often shifting Net Neutrality regulatory mandates.

Rather than looking forward – at how to best situate US in the global Internet regime.

This ain’t great for our nation.

This ain’t in compliance with the Constitution’s Commerce Clause.

The latter, of course – guarantees the former.

Because, as always – the further we get from Constitutional compliance…the worse things get for us all.

One of the largest, ongoing, rolling government scams?

Using taxpayer money to fund “research” – so as to generate “studies.”

And governments spend a LOT of our money – on “research” to generate “studies.”

Who Pays for Science?:

“Today, we all do. Most scientific research is funded by government grants….”

And he who pays the piper – calls the tune.

Because human nature.

Governments nigh always get for what they pay.  Because if governments don’t get for what they pay – they stop paying.

Those getting paid – certainly know the score.

Even when the bought-off “researchers” do “research” with non-government money – they know not to anger with their “studies” their far-and-away-largest paymasters.

So NIGH EVERY SINGLE “study” – toes the government line.

The government line is, of course:

The results of ALL your “research” and ALL your “studies” – must call for more government.  And for whatever else government is calling.

We have based large swaths of our lives, tons of government policy and tens of trillions of our dollars – on this one-sided, biased, outcome-driven nonsense.

The quintessential example of this?

Of course – it is the inanity that is Cataclysmic-Man-Made-Climate-Change.

Governments the world over have over the last half-century-plus spent multiple trillions of dollars of our money – on “research” for climate “studies.”

Guess how many of those multiple trillions of our dollars have gone to those skeptical of Cataclysmic-Man-Made-Climate-Change?

It’s as metaphysically close to zero as you’re ever going to get.

Cataclysmic-Man-Made-Climate-Change – is the Greatest Scam on Earth.

When the “research” doesn’t turn out the way government wants it – and it nigh always does, because Cataclysmic-Man-Made-Climate-Change is a giant scam – everyone starts faking the data.

The government certainly does.

World Leaders Duped by Manipulated Global Warming Data

Though I’m not entirely sure they weren’t in on the scam….

NOAA Got Caught Faking Global Warming Temperature Data

NASA Gets Caught Faking Climate Change Data-AGAIN!

And certainly the bought-off “researchers” fake the data.

Climate Change: This Is the Worst Scientific Scandal of Our Generation

IPCC Researchers Admit Global Warming Fraud:

“The messages were pirated from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia (UEA) and reveal correspondence between British and American researchers engaged in fraudulent reporting of data to favor their own climate change agenda….

“The e-mails implicate scores of researchers, most of whom are associated with the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), an organization many skeptics believe was created exclusively to provide evidence of anthropogenic global warming (AGW).”

Climategate 2.0: New E-Mails Rock the Global Warming Debate:

“Three themes are emerging from the newly released emails:

“(1) prominent scientists central to the global warming debate are taking measures to conceal rather than disseminate underlying data and discussions;

“(2) these scientists view global warming as a political “cause” rather than a balanced scientific inquiry and

“(3) many of these scientists frankly admit to each other that much of the science is weak and dependent on deliberate manipulation of facts and data.”

Why this world-wide, multi-decade, massive scam?

Because the alleged “solution” to the “problem” of Cataclysmic-Man-Made-Climate-Change – is MUCH more government.  Natch.

Green New Deal Would Cost Up to $93 Trillion

Well…that’s a lot.

The Green New Deal: Less About Climate, More About Control

No kidding.  Even it’s likely author cops to the scam….

AOC’s Chief of Staff Admits the Green New Deal Is Not about Climate Change:

“Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti admitted recently that the true motivation behind introducing the Green New Deal is to overhaul the ‘entire economy.’…

“The Green New Deal,…would transition the U.S. economy entirely away from fossil fuels within ten years while simultaneously providing a federal jobs and healthcare guarantee.

“It would also, according to its proponents, advance ‘social, economic, racial, regional and gender-based justice and equality and cooperative and public ownership.’”

That doesn’t sound very government-expanding at all.

Why are we less government types so skeptical of so much?

Because so much government – has polluted so much.

So when the following raft of headlines came this weekend across the transom – we were more than a mite dubious….

Massive Study Proves Once And For All That No, Net Neutrality Did Not Hurt Broadband Investment

Study Proves The FCC’s Core Justification for Killing Net Neutrality Was False

New Study Finds Net Neutrality Rules Didn’t Harm Investment

Gee…who did this groundbreaking “study”…?

You have to search for yourself – because none of these “news” outlets tell you….

Meet Dr. Christopher Hooton:

“Dr. Christopher Hooton is the founding Chief Economist & Head of Research at Internet Association where he leads the organization’s economic analysis and research on the internet sector.”

Gee…what is the Internet Association…?:

“Internet Association is the only trade association that exclusively represents leading global internet companies on matters of public policy.”

Which companies?  Amongst many others:

Microsoft         (Market Cap: $1.1 trillion)

Amazon           (Market Cap: $854 billion)

Google            (Market Cap: $843 billion)

Facebook        (Market Cap: $506 billion)

Twitter             (Market Cap: $32 billion)

Hooton did his “research” for his “study” – under the auspices of George Washington University.

Because we know college isn’t a bastion for corrupt “research” and “studies.”

See: East Anglia University.  And just about every college and university in the United States….

And what is the Internet Association’s longstanding position on Net Neutrality?

Vociferously for it, natch.

Net Neutrality Repeal Challenged by Internet Association in New Lawsuit

It’s almost hard to believe the Internet Association’s founding Chief Economist & Head of Research – has penned a “study” in defense of Net Neutrality.

Is this the Internet Association’s first foray into dubious Net Neutrality “research?”

Heavens no.

From 2017 – when the Donald Trump Administration was teeing up its right, righteous Net Neutrality un-doing:

Net Neutrality Investment Study Used ‘Corrupted, Made Up Data,’ Economist Says:

“The study was done by the Internet Association that represents pro-net neutrality companies like Amazon, Google and the like….

“A study showing zero impact on internet provider investment by net neutrality rules relied on ‘corrupted’ and ‘made up data,’ according to one economist….

“‘Dr. Hooton fabricates (via interpolation) three-fourths of the data he analyzes…for cable industry broadband investment,’ (economist George Ford said).”

And guess who did this “corrupted” study with “made up data”….

Why…it’s again our old friend Hooton.  The Internet Association’s founding Chief Economist & Head of Research.

And does imposition of Net Neutrality result in less government – or more government?

Just as with the Green New Deal, Net Neutrality results in much, MUCH more government.

Net Neutrality Is About Government Control of the Internet

Indeed it is.

One of its biggest proponents – gleefully admits it:

“At the moment, the battle over network neutrality is not to completely eliminate the telephone and cable companies. We are not at that point yet. But the ultimate goal is to get rid of the media capitalists in the phone and cable companies and to divest them from control.”

How very Venezuela.

And for the members of the Internet Association – Net Neutrality is a HUGE government-cronyism gift.

Net Neutrality a Sweet Deal for ‘Bandwidth Hogs’:

“Net Neutrality – in which all Internet traffic flows at one speed without preference for any content provider – is a hit with companies such as Google and Netflix that hope to dodge paying for the huge amount of online bandwidth they actually use….”

Oh – and did Net Neutrality cause a drop in Internet investment?

Of course it did.

Because more government – always means less private sector.

Because human nature.

So Net Neutrality is a magical, harmonic convergence.

Of government expansion – and government cronyism.

And oozing from this nexus of DC Swamp-titude – is this latest, ridiculous “study.”

“Researched” by – the founding Chief Economist & Head of Research of the Internet Association.

Whose members benefit HUGE from government’s imposition of Net Neutrality.

How very DC of…everyone.

5G Wireless Makes Government Broadband Even Dumber and More Dishonest Policy

One of the very MANY problems with government regulating the private sector – is it immediately halts or severely retards private sector progress.

For the regulations to be even remotely pertinent – the private sector must be forced to remain exactly as it is.  So as to allow titanically slow government – to keep up with the quicksilver private sector.

Because when the private sector evolves and changes – and the private sector ALWAYS evolves and changes – the government is left in the dust.

So one of the points of government regulation – is freezing in amber the private sector.  So as to maintain some semblance of government relevance.

When we manage to fend off really stupid regulation – the private sector almost always, quite rapidly, demonstrates how unnecessary and stupid the regulation was and is.

To wit:

We are still trying – with a whip and a chair – to fend off the Left’s attempts to impose Network Neutrality upon the Internet.

The Left – is rigidly insistent upon it.

Democrat Censured for Voting with Trump 19% of the Time. Bipartisanship Is Dead:

“(Senator Kyrsten Sinema)…opposes the Democrats’ ‘net neutrality’ internet scheme.”

Why has the Left been so screechingly adamant?

Because they know what we know:

The private sector is today on the verge of rendering Net Neutrality even dumber and more dishonest than it was yesterday.

(Fifth Generation) 5G Wireless Makes Net Neutrality Even Dumber Policy:

“Think about this: 4G wireless – is already within shouting distance of wired broadband.

The most data-intensive thing to currently do online – is stream video.  And just about everyone in America can currently, seamlessly stream video – on their wireless devices.

“That’s impressive.

“5G wireless is going to blow the doors off of 4G wireless – and wired broadband.

“Thank you yet again, Private Sector.  For yet again delivering exponential increases in speed and quality.  Yet again – totally bereft of Net Neutrality regulations.”

Another very dumb government idea – is government getting into the Internet Service Provider (ISP) business.

Leftists want government – which regulates private sector ISPs – to also compete with private sector ISPs.

Fake Indian Elizabeth Warren – Has A Lot Of Really Terrible Ideas:

“Yet another really terrible idea from the Idea Candidate?

“‘Universal Broadband? Warren Has a Plan for That’

“Of course she does.  She even put quill to parchment – to detail her Idea!-Plan! for the Washington Post….

“‘Elizabeth Warren: Here’s How We Get Broadband Internet to Rural America’

“(What did Leftists use to write before quill and parchment?  Computers.)”

Government competing with the private sector – is always a terrible idea:

“(It) is like having a baseball umpire…also pitch for the opposing team.

“You have the guy calling balls and strikes – calling balls and strikes for himself.

“Guess how all judgement calls going forward will go?”

The alleged reason for governments pretending to be the private sector – is a lack of ubiquitous Internet connection.

Rural areas are obviously tougher – and a lot more expensive – to reach with…everything.  Including tech.  And the US – is a very large place.

But even the connection computations are based upon a lie:

“‘The number of Americans lacking access to a terrestrial fixed broadband connection meeting the FCC’s benchmark of at least 25 Mbps/3 Mbps has dropped from 26.1 million Americans at the end of 2016 to 21.3 million Americans at the end of 2017, a decrease of more than 18%.’

“The 21.3 million number – was from 2017.  And that number – is down 18% from just one year prior.

“(T)he (Federal Communications Commission) FCC still bizarrely only counts a hardline (terrestrial fixed) Internet connection as a connection.  Meaning buried cables criss-crossing America – all the way into your abode.

“But nearly everyone in America has a 4G (Fourth Generation) wireless smartphone.  On which you can seamlessly stream High Definition (HD) video – the most bandwidth intensive thing currently to do on the Internet.  (And we’re but a few years away from exponentially-faster-5G).

“And then there is Satellite Internet – for the remaining very few who are bereft of both wired and cellular wireless.

“And those 25mbs (download) and 3Mbs (upload) speeds that serve as the FCC minimum?

“They are WAY faster than 98+% of Americans currently need.

“The Truth About Faster Internet: It’s Not Worth It:

“‘Typical U.S. households don’t use most of their bandwidth while streaming and get marginal gains from upgrading speeds.’”

The FCC and the Left only counting hardline Internet connections?  Is like the Barack Obama Administration counting illegal aliens turned around at the border as “deportations.”  (Which the Obama Administration very dishonestly did.)

It is woefully mis-representative of what is actually happening.

If you have a 4G wireless smartphone – you are by any reasonable definition connected to the Internet.

And that is…just about everyone.

And the 5G wireless network – is going to blow the doors off of even the existing, massive private sector success.

And thereby blow an even larger hole in the Left’s demands for government Internet.

How 5G Will Solve Rural Broadband:

“Starting with advanced versions of 4G LTE and then continuing with 5G, wireless technologies will not only displace many wireline endpoints in dense population areas, but also in low population density areas, including rural areas….

“Rural wireless throughput rates are already competitive, with 25 Mbps a typical downlink throughput rate offered by WISPs such as Rise Broadband, and technology roadmaps showing rates as high as 200 Mbps in the near future….

“The differences between rural versus urban deployments, however, are cell sizes and radio frequencies used. The cost advantage of wireless connections is overwhelming.

“A spokesperson for the Wireless ISP Association (WISPA) estimates that a wireless connection to a rural endpoint costs one-fifth to one-tenth of a wireline connection….

“A number of factors are converging in 5G to create critical mass for broadband transformation:

“Lower costs through global mass commoditization of cellular technology, ability to use spectrum all the way from UHF at 600 GHz to mmWave at 100 GHz, shared spectrum about to come online in Citizen’s Broadband Radio Service (CBRS), massive MIMO that extends range and capacity, and advanced interference mitigation techniques.”

Translation from Tech-to-English:

The Left’s idea to get into the government into the broadband business – is currently very stupid and dishonest.

Thanks to the private sector.

And the Left’s idea to get the government into the broadband business – is about to get exponentially stupider and more dishonest.

Thanks to the private sector.

So we say:

“Thanks yet again, private sector.”

And we say:

“For the love of God – leave us alone, government.”

The Left has spent the last five decades rigidly insisting the world was on the verge of imminent climactic collapse.

We are constantly on the verge of warming ourselves into mass extinction.

Dig this – from June, 1989:

U.N. Predicts Disaster if Global Warming Not Checked:

“A senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000.”

I’ll give you all a second to check a nearby calendar….

Yes, it’s nearly 2020.  Two decades AFTER the predicted beginning of the end.  Things are…exactly as they were.

The Left remains steadfastly impervious to facts.

The Left appears to like dozens.  Dig this – from January 2019:

Ocasio-Cortez on Millennials: ‘We’re Like the World Is Going to End in 12 Years if We Don’t Address Climate Change’:

“The world is going to end in 12 years unless the government takes action, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) said Monday at a Martin Luther King forum in New York City.”

How very United Nations-1989 – of AOC-2019.

How long are they incessantly wrong – before we finally stop listening to them?

The Left has spent the last two decades rigidly insisting the Internet was on the verge of imminent collapse.

We are constantly on the verge of Non-Neutralizing the Web into mass extinction.

Dig this – from June 2002:

A Proposal for Network Neutrality:

“(T)here is growing evidence that carriers can restrict the use of their broadband networks in ways that distort the market for internet applications, home networking equipment and other markets of public value….

“This proposal introduces the principle of network neutrality or non-discrimination as a tentative answer….”

Yes, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) “can” block you.  But they never, ever do.

Because they are in the customer service business.  If they do not service their customers – they will quite soon be out of business.

Since “Net Neutrality’s” introduction to the Leftist zeitgeist – we have always been one second away from a catastrophe…that never, ever comes to pass.

Dig this – from the 2010 election cycle:

Stand with Bold Democratic Candidates for Net Neutrality:

“Giant corporations want to take over the Internet. But over 95 bold Democratic candidates are going “on offense” – promising to protect Net Neutrality!”

Get that future tense again?  “Giant corporations want to take over the Internet.”  Not “have taken over the Internet” – they “want to” do so.

They haven’t yet – but they can AT ANY SECOND!

Actually, 95 Democrats and Democrat candidates signed that 2010 election petition.  How’d that go?

95 PCCC Pro-Net Neutrality Democrats All Lost on Tuesday – and PCCC Raised Less than $300 On It

Well that went well.

And here we are in the tail end of 2019.  After another decade of frenetic, frantic predictions of Internet doom.

Net Neutrality: Why the Next Ten Days Are So Important in the Fight for Fair Internet

The Left LOVES timelines – that turn out to be utter irrelevant to Reality.

Red Alert for Net Neutrality

Advocates Showed Friday Why Court Must Restore Net Neutrality

Net Neutrality Pros and Cons: This is Why it Must Be Preserved

Repeal of Net Neutrality Is Bad for Education, Business and You

Well, it’s 2019 – how’s the Internet doing?

Exactly the same freedoms as always.  And all the additional, exponential speed and quality improvements.

Provided solely by the Private Sector – that the Left wants to pummel with totally unnecessary government Net Neutrality regulations.

Speaking of private sector improvements – behold Fifth Generation Wireless….

What Is 5G, and How Fast Will It Be?:

“5G is the industry standard that will supersede the current widespread 4G LTE standard, just as 4G supplanted 3G. 5G just stands for ‘fifth generation’ – it’s the fifth generation of this standard.

“This standard is designed to be much faster than current 4G LTE technology. It’s not just about speeding up smartphone internet connections, though. It’s about enabling faster wireless internet everywhere for everything from connected cars to smart-home and Internet of Things (IoT) devices….

“While 4G tops out at a theoretical 100 megabits per second (Mbps), 5G tops out at 10 gigabits per second (Gbps). That means 5G is a hundred times faster than the current 4G technology.”

Let’s compare these wireless speeds to my home’s hardline-wired broadband connection.  I live in a suburb of a town of 2,000 people.  In the Land of Second Homes – where most people live mostly elsewhere rather than here….

I just tested my speed.  My major ISP ( I shan’t disclose – but trust me, it’s a major) – just timed at 281.78 Mbps.

Think about this: 4G wireless – is already within shouting distance of wired broadband.

The most data-intensive thing to currently do online – is stream video.  And just about everyone in America can currently, seamlessly stream video – on their wireless devices.

That’s impressive.

5G wireless is going to blow the doors off of 4G wireless – and wired broadband.

Thank you yet again, Private Sector.  For yet again delivering exponential increases in speed and quality.  Yet again – totally bereft of Net Neutrality regulations.

And 5Gs super speeds – makes Net Neutrality even dumber now…than its ever before been.  And that’s saying something.

The Net Neutrality argument is – there isn’t enough competition amongst ISPs.  So they will – one day, perhaps, maybe…. – block you.

Even though it would be STUPID ISP business practice.  Which is why ISPs never, ever have.

Well, we’re very, very soon all going to have wireless service that is MORE THAN THIRTY TIMES FASTER than my current hardline broadband speed.

Which means I’ll have about a dozen wireless ISPs – competing with my hardline ISP.

Which, by the way, I have had all along the way with 4G.

I work from home.  When my hardline connection fails me – I HotSpot my laptop off of my 4G cellular phone.  Out here in the hinterlands.

And I do everything I want to do online – up to and including streaming video.

The truth is: Net Neutrality has been orders-of-magnitude stupider – since the Private Sector delivered us 4G.

But the Left still insists on counting ONLY hardline connections – as connections.  Most unfortunately, so does our government.

But if almost all of us can do everything we need and want to do online wirelessly – how the heck does that not count as a connection?

We can all do all of that – on 4G.

We will all be able to do all of that – and so much more than we can currently conceive – on 5G.

And we’ve been doing all of it – totally bereft of titanically stupid Net Neutrality regulations.

May we please, FINALLY retire the stupid, ridiculous Net Neutrality?

(He asks…knowing the Left will never, ever abide Reality.)

Dave Chappelle and Big Tech Rotten Tomatoes: Everyone Is Biased About Everything

Technology technolgy Section 230 satellite progressives Privacy Politics Policy News network neutrality Net Neutrality law Internet Government Google Front Page Stories Front Page Foreign Policy Economy China California Business & Economy bias

My last actual gig prior to venturing out and founding Less Government – was at the Media Research Center (MRC).

I described MRCs toil as: “We work to expose and catalogue Leftist media bias.”  And then always added “We’re understaffed.”

But I have always held what I know was a minority perspective at the MRC.  On the media – and perhaps all humans everywhere.

MRC’s Mission Statement:

“To create a media culture in America where truth and liberty flourish.”

The MRC at least used to want to get back to the alleged halcyon days of unbiased journalism.

Except there was never any such thing as “unbiased journalism.”  Because human nature.  Humans – are biased.

CBS News anchor Walter Cronkite – was “The Most Trusted Man in America.”  And, we know now, a pronounced Leftist liar.

Because media culture is human culture – truth and liberty will never, ever flourish.  Personal perspectives on things – always will.

The Leftist perspective – has nigh always dominated the news media.

Right now, the Leftist perspective dominates the entertainment media and Hollywood.  But ’twas not always so – at least amongst the actors.

Before there was the heinousness of Rob Reiner and the beautiful ignorance of Alyssa Milano – there was the Golden Era of Tinsel Town.  When Ronald Reagan and John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart and Bob Hope – and many, many others – were huge stars…and conservative as the day is long.

But in all of this: One word you would never, ever use to describe any of these people – is “unbiased.”

Because humans – are biased.  Because human nature.

Humans do media – so media has been, is, and always will be biased.

When robots start doing journalism – they will reflect the biases of their programmers.

Speaking of media, Hollywood, Big Tech and pronounced bias….

Rotten Tomatoes Gives Dave Chappelle Special Zero Percent Rating

Dave Chappelle – is absolutely one of the funniest people alive.  Even if he simply came on stage and Bill Burr-style extruded a profanity-laced insult-fest of the city in which he was appearing – it would get something higher than…zero.

But you see – Chappelle’s “Sticks and Stones” special – is an actually funny thing.  (I know – I’ve watched it.)

Which means it draws humor from and pokes fun at – everyone.  And everyone – includes Leftists.

Rotten Tomatoes couldn’t let that go unchecked.  So Rotten Tomatoes – rigged their Chappelle rating:

“Chappelle’s latest hour-long stand-up set for Netflix received an extremely rare 0 percent Rotten Tomatoes rating from five professional critics….”

Wait – only “five professional critics?”  Rotten Tomatoes’ business model is – per their website:

“(T)he leading online aggregator of movie and TV show reviews from critics, we provide fans with a comprehensive guide to what’s Fresh – and what’s Rotten – in theaters and at home….

“The Tomatometer score – based on the opinions of hundreds of film and television critics – is a trusted measurement of critical recommendation for millions of fans.”

“Hundreds of…critics….”  So why was the entirety of the Chappelle review – limited to five obviously Leftist, pre-selected-by-Rotten-Tomatoes reviewers?

Because Rotten Tomatoes – is biased.  Because Rotten Tomatoes – is made up of humans.  In modern Hollywood and Big Tech – that means Leftist humans.

An important part of Rotten Tomatoes and its success – is serving as a place where We the Viewing Public can also rate what the “experts” rate.

When Rotten Tomatoes finally published the ratings of We the Viewing Public….:

“Rotten Tomatoes unveiled Chappelle’s special has received an equally rare 99 percent audience score.

“The high audience rating was the cumulative score from at least 3,753 casual reviewers who praised the comedian for daring to broach controversial topics that most comic stars have avoided in the era of ‘cancel culture.’

“Such a stark contrast among critics and regular viewers is almost unheard of and illustrates the wide cultural divide among the general public and media elites.”

This is…oh, I don’t know…about the nine millionth instance of Leftist Big Tech abusing their nigh-monopoly online platforms to screw anyone not in lockstep with their hard Leftism.

Of course, anecdotes of Big Tech Leftist bias – no matter if they number in the infinities – do not add up to data.

So one particular Leftist – delivered us the data on one particularly influential Leftist Big Tech function: Web Search.  How you get answers – when you ask the Internet questions.

Rotten Tomatoes rigging entertainment ratings is…bad.  But not fundamentally transformational of our politics – and thus our nation.

Leftist Big Tech rigging Web searches…is exceedingly awful.  In a great many ways – including politically.

And in 2018, 87.3% of all Web searches in the United States – took place via uber-Left, uber-huge Google (Market Cap: $851 billion).

So when you want to search the Web – you “Google” something.  Both rhetorically – and literally.

So when Google rigs things – they’re rigging nigh everything Americans see on the Web.

We all by our onesies have documented dozens and dozens of instances of Google (and other Big Tech joints) screwing conservatives.

But again, let’s get scientific.  Meet Dr. Robert Epstein – a self-avowed man of the Left.  I would not call him a Leftist – because he’s actually honest.

He’s been studying Big Tech’s political bias – for quite a while:

“Regarding elections, Dr. Epstein has found in multiple studies that search rankings that favor a political candidate drive the votes of undecided voters toward that candidate, an effect he calls SEME (“seem”), the Search Engine Manipulation Effect….

“(B)iased search rankings exercise undue influence over voter’s opinions – influence that cannot be counteracted by individual candidates but that can easily determine who will win a close election.”

Before Dr. Epstein did an in-depth study of Google manipulating voters and potential voters in the lead-up to the 2016 election – he called his shot:

How Google Could Rig the 2016 Election – August 19, 2015

Shocker – Google did.

In fact, Dr. Epstein’s study reveals – the election doesn’t even have to be close…to be transformationally affected by Google’s Leftist bias.

“In 2016, I set up the first-ever monitoring system that allowed me to look over the shoulders of a diverse group of American voters — there were 95 people in 24 states,” (Epstein) said….

“The study looked into ‘politically oriented searches’ from a ‘diverse group of American voters,’….

“‘I looked at politically oriented searches that these people were conducting on Google, Bing and Yahoo. I was able to preserve more than 13,000 searches and 98,000 web pages, and I found very dramatic bias in Google’s search results… favoring Hillary Clinton — whom I supported strongly.”

Again: The election doesn’t have to be close – to be won by Google:

“‘That level of bias was sufficient, I calculated, to have shifted over time somewhere between 2.6 and 10.4 million votes to Hillary without anyone knowing that this had occurred….’”

We have heard INCESSANTLY since Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton – that she won the popular vote by about three million votes.  That popular-vote-Clinton-victory – has re-ginned-up the Left’s push to end the electoral college.

And it turns out that if 90%-of-US-Search Google hadn’t uber-rigged their results for Clinton – Trump most likely would have also won the popular vote.  Maybe by a lot.

And how did Google get so uber-huge?  So as to wield such huge, Leftist, stealth political power?

Government cronyism.

Platform, or Publisher?:

“Section 230 of the (1996) Communications Decency Act immunizes online platforms for their users’ defamatory, fraudulent, or otherwise unlawful content. Congress granted this extraordinary benefit to facilitate ‘forum[s] for a true diversity of political discourse.’

“This exemption from standard libel law is extremely valuable to the companies that enjoy its protection, such as Google, Facebook, and Twitter, but they only got it because it was assumed that they would operate as impartial, open channels of communication—not curators of acceptable opinion.”

Get that?  Google and the rest of Big Tech get this massive cronyism – so long as they do not act as “curators of acceptable opinion.”

But Google – and the rest of Big Tech – have done exactly that.  Trillions and trillions of times.

The accumulated tonnage of anecdotes – proves it.

Dr. Epstein’s in-depth study – documents it.

Big Tech is biased – because they’re human.  And human nature…trumps…all.

Thus legislation dependent upon humans not behaving like humans – is folly.

Thus Section 230 – has gots to go.

Fake Indian Elizabeth Warren – Has a Lot of Really Terrible Ideas

Westlake Legal Group warren-4-620x266 Fake Indian Elizabeth Warren – Has a Lot of Really Terrible Ideas wireless Wired washington D.C. technolgy Section 230 satellite progressives Privacy Politics Policy News network neutrality Net Neutrality law Internet Government Front Page Stories Front Page Foreign Policy Economy China California Business & Economy

Translucent Massachusetts Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren dined out for decades and made millions of dollars – lying about being an American Indian.

Lyingly laying claim to much more melanin than she actually possesses – is but one of many, many awful things to which Warren has dedicated much of her life.

Warren is almost certainly a lifelong Leftist.  Almost no one gets this hardcore radical Left – if they started out on the Right.

As one gets older – and learns more and sees more of the world – one moves Right, not Left.  Ask former avowed Marxist Thomas Sowell.  Ask Winston Churchill:

“Any man under 30 who is not a liberal has no heart, and any man over thirty who is not a conservative has no brains.”

Oh sure, like Hillary Clinton, James Comey, Robert Mueller and many others – Warren and her Leftist media lackeys lyingly claim….

‘Liz Was a Diehard Conservative’

But they tell that lie – only so they can all then follow with lying variations of…

“Elizabeth Warren doesn’t like to talk about it, but for years she was a registered Republican. Why she left the GOP – and what it means for her campaign.”

See, Regular America?  ‘Liz’ used to be like you are now – but the GOP radicals drove her away.

So you should join with her – and her modest plan for $20-trillion-per-year in additional federal government spending.  And we can all hold hands together – as we hurl ourselves off the fiscal cliff into our final Oblivion.

Many, many of the really terrible ideas Warren has championed – have along the way become really terrible laws.  And they are now nigh all – REALLY destroying our nation.

Medicare for Seniors is more than $38 trillion short.  Warren wants Medicare for All.

Social Security is more than $32 trillion short.  Warren wants to further expand the expenditures.

And on.  And on.  And….

Warren is now, of course, running for President of the United States of America (God help us all).

And – believe it or not – the Leftist media has deemed Warren…the Idea Candidate.

‘I Have a Plan for That.’ Elizabeth Warren Is Betting That Americans Are Ready for Her Big Ideas

Elizabeth Warren’s Excellent Ideas

The Secret to Elizabeth Warren’s Surge? Ideas

Elizabeth Warren Has Lots of Plans. Together, They Would Remake the Economy

Elizabeth Warren Has a Plan to Fix Everything

Elizabeth Warren Has the Plans

Elizabeth Warren Unveils Immigration Plan That Would Decriminalize Border Crossings

Elizabeth Warren Outlines Sweeping New Gun Control Plans

Elizabeth Warren: Here’s My Plan to Cancel Student Loan Debt

And on.  And on.  And….

The Leftist idea that Warren is the Idea Candidate has now so thoroughly soaked the zeitgeist….

‘Elizabeth Warren Has a Plan for That’ Memes Are Here:

“Rest assured that if we need someone to inspire new memes, Elizabeth Warren is the woman for that.”

Seriously – I am now exceedingly nauseous.  Whereas as I contemplated this – I was merely a bit queasy.

Never mind that the seventy years’ worth of Warren’s really terrible ideas – have ALL turned out terrible.

Never mind that Warren’s really terrible ideas for tomorrow – are nigh identical to all the Left’s really terrible ideas for today.  And yesterday.  And for more than an entire century.

Never mind ALL of that really terrible history.  The Left’s March to Oblivion – looks and moves only…Forward!!!

For the Left – there is no Yesterday.  There is no Today.  There is only Tomorrow.

Because Yesterday and Today – prove the Left wrong.  The Left isn’t yet wrong Tomorrow.

Yet another really terrible idea from the Idea Candidate?

Universal Broadband? Warren Has a Plan for That

Of course she does.  She even put quill to parchment – to detail her Idea!-Plan! for the Washington Post….

Elizabeth Warren: Here’s How We Get Broadband Internet to Rural America

(What did Leftists use to write before quill and parchment?  Computers.)

Guess what Warren’s Idea!-Plan! is?

Is Warren calling for less government?  Or more government.

As with all things – Warren is calling for the most government.

As with all things – Warren is calling for government, the whole government and nothing but the government.

As really terrible ideas go – hers could be the absolute worst:

“The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) reports that a staggering 21.3 million Americans don’t have access to high-speed broadband – no doubt an underestimate given the notorious loopholes in FCC reporting requirements.”

Stop right there.

What didn’t Warren tell you?:

“The number of Americans lacking access to a terrestrial fixed broadband connection meeting the FCC’s benchmark of at least 25 Mbps/3 Mbps has dropped from 26.1 million Americans at the end of 2016 to 21.3 million Americans at the end of 2017, a decrease of more than 18%.”

The 21.3 million number – was from 2017.  And that number – is down 18% from just one year prior.

And the FCC still bizarrely only counts a hardline (terrestrial fixed) Internet connection as a connection.  Meaning buried cables criss-crossing America – all the way into your abode.

But nearly everyone in America has a 4G (Fourth Generation) wireless smartphone. On which you can seamlessly stream High Definition (HD) video – the most bandwidth intensive thing currently to do on the Internet.  (And we’re but a few years away from exponentially-faster-5G).

And then there is Satellite Internet – for the remaining very few who are bereft of both wired and cellular wireless.

And those 25mbs (download) and 3Mbs (upload) speeds that serve as the FCC minimum?  They are WAY faster than 98+% of Americans currently need.

The Truth About Faster Internet: It’s Not Worth It:

“Typical U.S. households don’t use most of their bandwidth while streaming and get marginal gains from upgrading speeds.”

So even while streaming High Definition (HD) video – the most bandwidth intensive thing currently to do on the Internet – “typical U.S. households don’t use most of their bandwidth.”

In other words – just about everyone in America has more-than-sufficient access to the Internet.

But Government Everywhere Warren – remains steadfastly impervious to facts:

“I have a plan for a new public option for broadband Internet…that would manage an $85 billion federal grant program. Only electricity and telephone cooperatives, nonprofit organizations, tribes, cities, counties and other state subdivisions would be eligible for grants.”

Get that?  No private sector companies are eligible.  The entities that, you know, actually built the modern Internet – from scratch.  The only entities that have consistently connected anyone – and have already connected basically everyone – are forbidden from participating.

And would Warren’s be the government’s first foray into pretending to be an Internet Service Provider (ISP)?  Heavens no – as Warren admits:

“(The 21.3 million American tally – which is really metaphysically close to zero) is despite more than a decade of efforts by policymakers at the state and federal level to end the ‘digital divide’ and deliver universal access to high-speed Internet.”

Government has tried and tried and tried again to be an ISP.  And government has failed and failed and failed again.

Municipal Broadband Is A Failed Model

The Failures of Government-Owned Internet

Municipal Broadband: A Bad Deal For Taxpayers

Municipal Broadband Fails – Again

There’s even an interactive online map – documenting all the very many places government’s very many attempts at being an ISP have failed.

Broadband Boondoggles: A Map of Failed Taxpayer-Funded Networks:

“For decades, local governments have made promises of faster and cheaper broadband networks. Unfortunately, these municipal networks often don’t deliver or fail, leaving taxpayers to foot the bill. Explore the map to learn about the massive debt, waste and broken promises left behind by these failed government networks.”

Decades of failed attempts by government – to pretend to be an ISP.

Which Warren – readily admits.

But Warren demands she drag us once more into that breach.

Off the fiscal cliff – and into our final Oblivion.

Because for the Left – there is no Yesterday.  There is no Today.  There is only Tomorrow.

And Tomorrow.  And….

‘America Is Awful’: The Left Wants More Government – Because It’s What’s Worst for US

Westlake Legal Group chicom-us-flags-620x397 ‘America Is Awful’: The Left Wants More Government – Because It’s What’s Worst for US washington D.C.

The average American understandably thinks political and policy debates are conducted – in the interest of America’s best interest.

“Surely everyone involved in government wants what’s best for the country.  They just disagree on what policies will get us there.”

Most unfortunately, this isn’t the case – for the Left.

Leftists – do not like America very much.  At all.  So they seek to tear it down and destroy it – in the name of “fixing” it.  We must burn down the village – in order to save it.

The Left’s last president, Barack Obama, spent two decades attending the services of Reverand Jeremiah Wright.  Obama referred to Wright as his “spiritual advisor” and “mentor.” Obama had Wright marry him and Michelle.  Obama had Wright baptize his two daughters.  Obama’s second autobiography’s title – The Audacity of Hope – is taken from a Wright sermon.

Wright?  Not a fan of America.

Jeremiah Wright: ‘God D**n America’

In reference to the terrorist attacks on US on September 11th, 2001, Wright “preached”:

America’s Chickens Are Coming Home To Roost

Again, Obama was intrinsically involved with Wright – for more than twenty years.  It’s not a titanic leap to think Obama thinks similarly about America.

Why else would Obama want to “break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution?”  You know, that document he swore to “preserve, protect and defend” when he took his oaths of office.

Why else would Obama want to “fundamentally transform” America?

Is Obama an outlier.  Not even a little bit.

Beto O’Rourke is currently unemployed – and (barely) a Democrat presidential candidate.  Beto – not a fan of America.

O’Rourke: America Is A Country ‘Founded On Racism,’ ‘Is Still Racist Today’

Vermont Senator and Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders – is at least slightly honest.  He cops to his Socialism.  He and his wife honeymooned in the Soviet Union.  Bernie – not a fan of America.

Bernie Sanders: U.S. Founded on ‘Racist Principles’

Leftists aplenty loathe America.

Elizabeth Warren: Our Justice System Is ‘Racist, All the Way, Front to Back.’

Julian Castro: ‘No Question’ America’s Criminal Justice System Is Racist

Seth Moulton: America Is Racist

You don’t have to run for President to hate America.

Erica Thomas Is Every Democrat Who’s Addicted to Playing the Race Card

Democratic Fundraiser Says America Is Racist and Sexist

In fact….

To Democrats, America is a Sinkhole of Racism

Democrats Declare Anyone That Loves America Is Racist

Leftists everywhere – enthusiastically burn the US flag.  While waving some highly problematic flags from other nations and movements.

Here’s Antifa taking a break from thumping the skulls of old people and children and waving Communist flagsburning a US flag.

In fact:

Antifa Brags About Being Anti-America, Burning US Flag

Here’s Antifa precursor Occupy Wall Street – burning a US flag.

Here are anti-President Donald Trump protestors waving Communist flags time and again – and burning a US flag.

Here are more anti-Trump protestors waving a Communist flag – and burning a US flag.

Here are anti-Republican protestors – burning a US flag.

Here are anti-borders protestors waving a Mexican flag – and burning a US flag.

Leftists burn the US flag in protest – and sometimes in celebration.

Protesters Burn US Flags as Obama Delivers Speech at DNC

This Leftist anti-America insanity – goes back decades and decades.

So when the Left insists on policy prescriptions for the US – one is more than reasonable to be dubious of their intentions.

Because: Why would any assemblage of people so opposed to the US – promote policies that would better the US?

One would very reasonably think the Left’s policy prescriptions – would in fact do damage to a country they do not very much like.

To wit: Obamacare.  Massive new government impositions – so as to make matters worse.  Which will then “justify” even more government impositions – which will make matters even worse.  Lather, rinse, repeat….

Obamacare killed health insurance for millions of Americans.  Obamacare, on average, doubled insurance premiums.  Obamacare, on average, tripled insurance deductibles.

Obamacare was an unmitigated disaster for America.

So of course Leftists defend it to the death.  And, in fact, look to EXPAND it.

Democrats Begin Their Defense of Obamacare

Joe Biden: We Must Protect And Build On Obamacare

Does Bernie Sanders Support Obamacare? Yes, But He Wants to Go One Step Further

Elizabeth Warren: Obamacare ‘Wasn’t Bold Enough

Pete Buttigieg: Obamacare Is Too Conservative

The Left’s rabid promotion of awful policy – is everywhere.

To wit: Network Neutrality.  Which is Obamacare for the Internet.  Massive new government impositions – so as to make matters worse.  Which will then “justify” even more government impositions – which will make matters even worse.  Lather, rinse, repeat….

Thankfully, we weren’t subjected to the awfulness of Net Neutrality for nearly as long as we were subjected to the awfulness of Obamacare.

(After almost a decade in place, Obamacare was mostly gutted when in 2019 the mandate to purchase a policy went away.)

Net Neutrality – and its crippling imposition of antiquated regulations – was only in place for about a year.

There was of course some damage done.  Investment in the Internet’s infrastructure was down precipitously during Net Neutrality.  As is nigh always the case in any private sector – when government massively imposes additional regulations.

But the Trump Administration un-imposed Net Neutrality – and things reverted to the quarter-century status quo of Net Neutrality-free Internet uber-success.

The parade of horribles Leftists promised without Net Neutrality – never, ever happened in twenty-plus years of the Net Neutrality-free Internet.

And the parade of horribles Leftists promised with Net Neutrality’s un-imposition – never, ever happened once it rightly, righteously went away.

Net Neutrality is a solution – running around desperately in search of a problem.

Net Neutrality is breasts on a bull.  It is sneakers for snakes.  It is totally and completely unnecessary.

Every alleged problem about which the Left shrieks that Net Neutrality would allegedly solve – is self-solved by the free market.

To wit: Leftists claim that without Net Neutrality, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) will block you from places on the Web.

Except no ISP is going to block you – because they want you to keep hiring them to connect you to the Internet.  Because duh.

Since Net Neutrality’s repeal – the Left has been obsessed.  Just this past week:

FCC Forgets About, Then Dismisses, Complaint Detailing Verizon’s Long History Of Net Neutrality Violations:

“Verizon’s long history on this front is fairly indisputable, and the company has never been held seriously accountable for any of it.”

Actually, Verizon is held accountable each and every day – by 250+ million US customers and prospective customers.  How’s Verizon doing with them?:

“Verizon is the largest cell phone carrier in the U.S.”

It would appear Verizon’s customers – do not care about Net Neutrality.  In fact:

Voters Care Not About Net Neutrality

The only people that care at all about Net Neutrality – are Leftists.

The Left is STILL obsessed.  Leftist college professors JUST released a “study” on it.  And the Leftist media – are VERY worked up about it.

Net Neutrality: ISPs Are Throttling Netflix Traffic

What do these very many agitated Leftists not tell you?

Net Neutrality used to allow ISPs to engage in “reasonable network management.”

Meaning ISPs need to manage the traffic on their networks – so as to maintain maximum speed and quality for the maximum number of users.  Which is eminently reasonable.

Leftists have effectively ended the “reasonable network management” exemption – because they’re radical and crazy.

What else do these very many agitated Leftists not tell you?

Netflix, YouTube Gobble Up Half of Internet Traffic

NOTHING consumes Internet bandwidth like video.  Netflix and YouTube – consume half of America’s bandwidth.  So quite obviously – some reasonable network management is required.

These many articles point out that ISPs do nothing to Amazon Prime Video’s streaming service.  Why?  Because Amazon Prime Video’s streaming service isn’t nearly the massive imposition on the US network that Netflix and YouTube are.  Because duh.

The Internet has become a free speech-free market Xanadu – completely from any Net Neutrality regulations.

So…why the Leftist rabid, rigid insistence we be subjected to it?  Because the Internet has become a free speech-free market Xanadu without it.

Meet avowed Marxist, Media Marxist godfather and virulent Net Neutrality proponent Robert McChesney.

McChesney is the co-founder of the Left’s leading group on all things Internet and media – the uber-ironically mis-named Free Press.

Like any Leftist, McChesney is…not a huge fan of the US:

The United States is, I think, by any honest account, the leading terrorist institution in the world today.

How pleasant.

Like any Leftist, McChesney is…not a huge fan of the US’ capitalist economic system:

There is no real answer but to remove brick by brick the capitalist system itself, rebuilding the entire society on socialist principles.

McChesney sees his Internet and media revolution – as a fundamental part of his Socialist revolution:

Any serious effort to reform the media system would have to necessarily be part of a revolutionary program to overthrow the capitalist system itself.

And McChesney sees Net Neutrality – as a fundamental part of his Internet and media revolution.

At the moment, the battle over network neutrality is not to completely eliminate the telephone and cable companies. We are not at that point yet. But the ultimate goal is to get rid of the media capitalists in the phone and cable companies and to divest them from control.

Leftist McChesney wants Net Neutrality – precisely because wants to destroy the US.

And Leftist McChesney knows Net Neutrality – is a fundamental component of destroying the US.

Net Neutrality is designed to destroy the US.

Just as every Leftist policy is designed to destroy the US.

You don’t have to take my word for it.

Take theirs.

The Left Is Either Confused – Or Projecting. Or Both. Ok – It’s Probably Both

The Left is really confused.

They spend lots and LOTS of time accusing the Right – of things the Left does.  Often of things only the Left does.  Often of things that are antithetical to being Right – so the Right would never, ever do them.

Or perhaps the addled Left is engaged in Psychological Projection:

“Psychological projection is a defense mechanism in which the human ego defends itself against unconscious impulses or qualities…by denying their existence in themselves while attributing them to others.”

The Left has spent decades accusing the Right of being racist.  Of being separatists/segregationists.  Of being Ku Klux Klan (KKK) members.

Except the KKK was founded – by the Democrat Party.  To try to keep – often murderously – members of the Republican Party from registering blacks to vote and getting them further engaged in the political process.

Except all the separatists/segregationists – were Democrats.  From George Wallace on down – all Democrats.

Abortion mill Planned Parenthood is a favorite of the Left.  It was founded by Margaret Sanger – another favorite of the LeftWho said really pleasant things like:

“We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population…”

“I accepted an invitation to talk to the women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan… I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak…In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered.”

And Leftist Sanger’s vision – is being delivered by her Planned Parenthood.

CDC: 35% of Aborted Babies Are Black

Blacks – are only 12% of the population.

Racist movie “Birth of a Nation” was screened in the White House – by Democrat President Woodrow Wilson.

American citizens of Japanese descent were during World War II locked up in internment camps – by Democrat President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

Today’s Democrat Party has the Congressional Black and Hispanic Caucuses.  Separatism.

Today’s Democrat Party has grievance groups like the NAACP and La Raza (translation from the original Spanish: “The Race”).  Separatism.

Of course, it is Leftists who look at people as members of various groups.  They are collectivists – on everything, including race.

But the smallest minority of all – is the individual. Rightists – who are actually Rightists – look at people as individuals.  Which is antithetical to collectivist-racist thought.

The Left is really confused.  Or projecting.

The Left is constantly accusing the Right of being fascists.  Of being Nazis.  Republican President Donald Trump is alleged to be Adolf Hitler.  This after Republican President George W. Bush was alleged to be Hitler.  This after….

The Left even has Antifa – short for “Anti-Fascists.”

Except Antifa is…ummm…a bunch of uniformed thugs beating up and beating down Rightists.  Like the Nazi SS.  Like the Italian Fascist Brown Shirts.

And like the Soviet KGB.  Nazism and Fascism are sibling ideologies – and both are of the Left.  Nazi is, after all, short for “National Socialist.”  And Nazism and Fascism are also siblings – of Socialism/Communism.  Leftists all.

All three sibling ideologies demand an increase in government centralization.  All three demand an increase in government power.

All of which is right in line with the Left.  All of which is antithetical to the Right.

The Left is really confused.  Or projecting.

Speaking of the Left’s confusion.  Or projection.  Or both….:

Hands off the Internet, President Trump

What this also is…is the Left’s acknowledgement that on more things than not, We the People want less government – not more.

So the Left attempts to frame less government policy – as more government policy:

“In the wake of the president’s complaints about how Big Tech treats conservatives, the Trump administration is reportedly developing an executive order that would make a mockery of Republicans’ supposed reluctance to regulate the internet….

“The order’s target is a 1996 federal law that shields online companies from liability for the content uploaded by their users. Significantly, the law – known informally as Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act – allows companies to block or remove uploads that they judge to be ‘objectionable,’ as long as they act ‘in good faith.’

“According to CNN’s Brian Fung, who obtained a summary of the order, the administration wants the Federal Communications Commission to restrict the availability of that shield.…”

Section 230 – is much MORE government.  It imposes huge, sweeping immunities from the likes of libel, slander and Intellectual Property (IP) enforcement – for huge Internet companies like Google and Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

Extra protections – no other companies have.  Extra protections – granted to companies that are hugely, overwhelmingly Leftist.

This government-granted protectionism – may the hugest cronyism in the history of huge cronyism.

These hugely massive Internet companies got to be so hugely massive – largely thanks to these huge, sweeping, government-protectorate immunities.

And these Leftist crony companies have spent the entirety of their existences – abusing the living daylight out of Section 230s “in good faith” censorship exemption.  Acting over and over again – very much in bad faith.  So they can time and again censor the Right.

Google Whistleblower Bombshell: Search Engine Used Social Justice Warriors to Train Its AI Systems to Suppress All Conservative Views (and Block ‘Another Trump’ from Happening)

Former Facebook Workers: We Routinely Suppressed Conservative News

Twitter Employees Admit to Censoring Conservatives, Banning Them for Political Reasons

Whistleblower: Pinterest Censors Conservative, Pro-Life Content

These massive Leftist companies finding Righties objectionable – doesn’t meet the Section 230 legal standard of objectionable.

These massive Leftist companies have been in chronic, incessant violation of Section 230.  Not holding up their tiny end of the bargain – pledged in exchange for their HUGE legal-protectorate cronyism.

So these massive Leftist companies – should lose their huge legal-protectorate cronyism.

The law should apply to these massive Leftist companies – in exactly the same way it applies to everyone else.

This would be a HUGE reduction in government.

And a restoration of adherence to the Constitution’s Fourteenth Amendment.  Which reads in the relevant part:

“No state shall make or enforce any law which shall…deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

Which the Left is trying to say – is more government: “Hands off the Internet, President Trump.”

Because the Left is really confused.  Or projecting.

Ok – it’s probably both.

Net Neutrality Proponent Google – Accidentally Admits Net Neutrality Is Unnecessary

Technology progressives Privacy Politics Policy News network neutrality Net Neutrality law Internet Government Front Page Stories Front Page Foreign Policy Economy China California Business & Economy

We Less Government types like less government – for a vast and varied panoply of reasons.

For purposes of today’s excursion – let us focus on but one part of but one.

We like less government – because a market free from unnecessary government impositions delivers the most good to the most people.

Businesses are in business – to please customers.  And are in competition with other businesses – to please customers.  The more customers a business pleases – the more customers it gets.

So the economic self-interest of the businesses – not only protects the customers from harm, but ensures the customers the maximum satisfaction from the businesses looking to get their business.

So regulation to stop businesses from engaging in behavior that will harm customers – is almost always completely and utterly unnecessary.

You can impose regulations saying “Soda companies shall not put poison in their beverages.”  And without engaging in a Web search – I am almost positive many governments have.

But soda companies want customers – and they want repeat customers.  So they are exceedingly unlikely to put poison in their beverages.

The regulations – are wholly unnecessary.

And then you have opened the monstrous can of worms – that is a perpetually incompetent and politicized government defining what soda “poison” is.

Our government – and many, many others – has ridiculously deemed carbon dioxide a planet-poisoning “pollutant.”  You know, CO2 – the stuff every plant on the planet inhales.  Which is almost certainly the stupidest government definition – in a human history chock full of them.

So I am quite sure Coke and Pepsi don’t want government going there with them.

We Less Government types have spent the last two decades – almost since the inception of the private sector Internet – fending off Leftist attempts to impose massive-government-regulations Network Neutrality upon the Web.

And very many of the Leftists and their Net Neutrality attempts – were for years and years funded by Google.

Google wants Net Neutrality – because it would deliver them HUGE government cronyism.

But one massive cronyism advantage:

Google is a HUGE hog of Internet bandwidth.  Net Neutrality outlaws them paying for any of it.

Which means you and I will pay a whole lot more for our Internet access – to subsidize the likes of monster hog Google.

Because Google would benefit hugely from Net Neutrality, Google has spent hundreds of millions of dollars lobbying for it – and propping up Leftist “consumer” groups to lobby and screech and shout for Net Neutrality on their behalf.

The lie the Left tells to engender support for Net Neutrality?

The big, bad Internet Service Providers (ISPs) – the companies whom we hire to connect us to the Web – will block us from connecting to the Web.

Get that?  Net Neutrality’s proponents claim the ISP customer service businesses – will refuse to service their customers.

That’s the kernel of anti-Reality – upon which the entirety of the monstrous Net Neutrality lie is built.

Except no ISP has ever blocked anyone (from lawful content) – ever.  Because it is literally antithetical to their business model.

It would be like Coke and Pepsi – refusing to sell Coke and Pepsi.

And you know who knows this?  Net Neutrality-shoving Google:

“Phil Harrison, vice president and general manager of Google, was asked about data caps and the threat they pose to Stadia, the company’s fledgling cloud gaming platform. His response suggested that he believes ISPs will voluntarily lift the data caps for game streamers:

“‘The ISPs have a strong history of staying ahead of consumer trend and if you look at the history of data caps in those small number of markets — and it’s actually a relatively small number of markets that have [data caps] — the trend over time, when music streaming and download became popular, especially in the early days when it was not necessarily legitimate, data caps moved up. Then with the evolution of TV and film streaming, data caps moved up, and we expect that will continue to be the case.”

Emphasis ours.  Because it’s game-set-match for Net Neutrality – and its proponents have lost.  And it is Google admitting it.

“The ISPs have a strong history of staying ahead of consumer trend” – means ISPs have a strong history of looking out for what their customers want…and giving it to them.

Whether it’s on ever-increasing (or no) data caps – or never, ever blocking anyone from going anywhere on the Web.

No Net Neutrality regulations required.

Because the ISPs’ free market desire to get the most customers possible – mandates they do these customer-pleasing things.

No Net Neutrality regulations required.

So, thanks to Google for (inadvertently) finally coming clean.

There are no Net Neutrality regulations required.
