As we have explained on www.ObamaChart.com, the Obama administration is committed to accomplishing its far-left agenda at any cost and by any means. When Congress blocks its agenda, it pursues any number of techniques to circumvent the normal policy-making process.
In its efforts to impose crippling net neutrality regulations on the Internet-an idea with very little support from the American public or Congress-the Obama administration turned to the FCC to simply pretend Congress has given it authority to regulate. The DC Circuit Court of Appeals emphatically smacked down that attempt in Comcast v. FCC.
But President Obama and his close friend, FCC chairman Julius Genachowski, refuse to back down. Chairman Genachowski wants to escalate to the regulatory equivalent of a nuclear attack on the free-market Internet: reclassifying broadband Internet as an old-fashioned telephone system as a pretext for total regulatory control.
Robert McChesney, the Marxist founder of Free Press, one of the leading groups urging the FCC to reclassify the Internet as a phone system under the pretext of “net neutrality” explained:
“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.”
