Obama Forcing Private Companies to Have Board Votes on Illegal Policy

February 20, 2012
Seton Motley, Breitbart

Another day, another Barack Obama Administration totalitarian diktat.

In other words, whatever Obama wants – by any means necessary.

Behold Obama’s Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).  Which last week handed down from on-high a mandate that telecommunications companies AT&T, Verizon and Sprint MUST have Board votes on Network Neutrality.

SEC to Telcos: Yes, Net Neutrality is a Significant Policy Issue

The problem for Obama’s SEC is – Net Neutrality isn’t even a LEGAL policy issue.  Because Congress has never passed a law making Net Neutrality actual policy.

The federal government – via the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) – first tried to unilaterally impose Net Neutrality in 2008.  And the D.C. Circuit Court in April 2010 unanimously threw the government out on its ear.

Because the FCC “has failed to tie its assertion” of regulatory authority to an actual law enacted by Congress, the agency does not have the power to regulate an Internet provider’s network management practices, wrote Judge David Tatel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.

Tuesday’s decision could doom one of the signature initiatives of FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski, a Democrat. Last October, Genachowski announced plans to begin drafting a formal set of Net neutrality rules–even though Congress has not given the agency permission to do so.

But it didn’t doom Genachowski and Obama’s illegal Net Neutrality intentions.  It didn’t even daunt them.  Just eight months after this stinging rebuke, Obama’s FCC went ahead and illegally jammed through Net Neutrality anyway.

They did so despite the D.C. Circuit Court’s unanimous ruling.  And they did so despite the fact that more than 300 members of the then still-Democrat-Majority Congress – the body charged with giving the FCC Net Neutrality authority – were for months in advance telling them not to.

And now… the rest of the story. …..

    How can he order private companies to do anything???

    Oh yeah..they are all in his pocket.

    I give up.

    This country has been trashed by Obama and our Congress is too chicken to take him on.

    I am ready for the rapture and give up on politics.

    ere is the real threat to Israel. Assad is a bod boy , his father a butcher, his family and fellow Alawites hold Syrians in a grip of terror, but he is not now and has never been a serious threat to Israel. Like Saddam Hussein Assad is mostly talk and bluster. I assure you the Muslim Brother hood and their Al Qaeda allies are very serious and will undertake any adventure to destroy or weaken Israel. McCain and his doppelganger Graham are the real enemies of Israel working together to bring into power forces that are committed to destroy Israel. Ron Paul has repeated warned us against “blow back,” and what has occurred in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya are prime examples. The USA needs to get out of Middle Easter affairs and let the Arabs get back to their ages old internecine warfare where they expend their energies on killing each other. There are so many reason why the country needs Ron Paul. We do not need McCain and Graham’s and their pick Romney. The USA can neither afford or win these wars. We need to draw back to our borders and defend America while repairing the damage done to our economy and soles by the neo-cons and Marxists who have ruled over us for too many decades.
