Obama's FCC Moves to Control the Internet
Grassfire Nation Update
President Obama is using the FCC to seize control and
regulate the Internet. If successful, the move could
have a devastating impact on the U.S. economy,
investments and innovation while squelching your
freedom of speech!

Tea Party success is the motivating force behind an aggressive liberal push to take over the Internet and regulate the unfettered access to news and information!
Without the votes in Congress to push such legislation, liberals are relying on the Federal Communications Commission to seize control of the Internet through what is called "Net Neutrality" -- a series of rules that would empower the federal government to regulate the Internet in the name of "freedom".
Just a year ago, the Huffington Post's Joseph A. Palermo called on Obama to use the FCC to "lock in this advantage."
The advantage that he was referring to was the
fact that progressive news and information sites
such as the Huffington Post and MoveOn.org had
played a key role in shifting communications
technology away from the Right and toward as he
writes, "progressive social change."
He continued: "With Democratic majorities in
congress and a liberal Democratic administration
we can blunt the political influence of media
conglomerates and the Right... We have a very rare
opportunity right now to lock in a progressive
advantage in Internet communications, information
sharing, and Netroots mobilizing."
This was the liberal plan then. Now having lost power in the House, they are more desperate then ever to advance their progressive, socialist agenda, and are willing to use whatever means necessary...
Unless we can stop them.
Days before the FCC's December 20
introduction of the new Net Neutrality rules,
Grassfire Nation will deliver your petitions to
each of the five FCC commissioners including chairman,
and Obama appointee, Julius Genachowski.
Not surprisingly, little has been reported about the true nature of Net Neutrality. When the chairman announced to the media his draft rules memo, he did so saying, it would "preserve the freedom and openness of the Internet."
The draft also included an official FCC "NONPUBLIC, internal use only" stamp to assure that no one outside the FCC sees the document until the rules are approved on December 21...
So much for freedom and openness!
This is why we cannot delay. We can't allow Obama and the FCC to surprise Americans with this "present".
But how many petitions we deliver depends solely on you!
Are you ready to have your Internet usage regulated and your free speech rights undermined by the federal government? That's precisely what will happen unless Americans mount a sensational nationwide resistance against the FCC's Net Neutrality rules.
