Network Neutrality is sadly, yet again back from the dead.  Because the Barack Obama Administration keeps insisting on resurrecting it.

Twice now the D.C. Circuit Court has unanimously thrown out the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Net Neutrality power grab.  Have said grabbers been at all chastened by these rebukes?  Sadly, no.

Barely over a month after the FCC’s second rejection, we get this:

FCC Plans to Issue New ‘Net Neutrality’ Rules

Likely forcing yet another company or two to waste millions of dollars and tens of thousands of hours suing to – hopefully – fend off the Leviathan.

Meanwhile, it’s time for Congress to rein in this Administration’s unilateral authoritarianism.  Cut the FCC’s budget – and refuse to restore funding until the FCC restores sanity and stops trying to illegally impose Net Neutrality.

After all, it is Congress’ job to pass Net Neutrality legislation – thereby creating the legal authority for the FCC to impose it.  Otherwise known as the cart-after-the-horse approach.

Congress should at the very least be offended by the FCC usurping their jobs right out from under them.

We are drowning in Obama Administration illegal power grabs.  Congress must finally do something to stop it. The FCC yet again assaulting with Net Neutrality about the only functional economic sector going is a great place to start.

Please Congress – throw us and the economy a lifeline.  Cut some of the many FCC purse strings – until they cut this stuff out.

"Meanwhile, it’s time for Congress to rein in this Administration’s unilateral authoritarianism. "

Really???? THIS Congress??? The rubber stamp mix of extremist lefties and RINO pretenders to conservatism makes that statement utterly ridiculous. It should be obvious at this point that in order to get Congress to do its job we first must clean house completely and become activists in the polls- voting out just about every incumbent who is up for reelection- and replacing them with write in candidates who will honestly uphold and protect the Constitution according to the oath they swear to- instead of engaging in a war against the citizenry.

You are suggesting that one faction stand up to their ally in containing the agenda that by their actions both have shown themselves to be in pursuit of. Congress and the Administration have demonstrated themselves to be criminal organizations deserving nothing less than to be brought to justice- if THAT even exists anymore. Our legislators are criminals- like the members of the administration whom they enable and abet at every turn.
