Obama veto threat to keep new Internet rules

obama thinking

The White House threatened on Monday to veto any bill from Congress that would scuttle new rules aimed at keeping internet access free and open.

“If the president is presented with a resolution of disapproval that would not safeguard the free and open Internet, his senior advisers would recommend that he veto the resolution,” the Office of Management and Budget said in a Statement of Administration Policy.

The House Rules Committee voted on Monday evening to send the resolution to the House floor. The resolution would repeal the Federal Communications Commission’s so-called “network-neutrality” regulations, designed to prevent Internet carriers from blocking websites that use too much bandwidth. The committee voted to allow one hour of debate on the issue. House aides say a vote is expected on Tuesday but the resolution is not expected to make it past the Senate.

    Barry’s has to stop free speech in order to keep control.

    • Star

      You are absolutely correct! He only knows one way to control–BULLY!! What a traitor!!

    • Cindy

      He is not even a US citizen & neither is his dad. Stay on it with Congress everyone. Obama is not qualified under the constitution
      to be Prez. much less be entitled to this position & boss everyone around.

    • Dave

      Thank you President Obama for keeping the internet open and free!

      Ridiculous.

      What an idiot Harry Reid is to act as Obama’s puppet, to personally keep any legisation from reaching Obama that he would have to veto, so the American people would know for sure who should get the blame for unpopular policies that they want abolished or changed. They’re protecting Obama and saving his chances to be re-elected by scarificing their own chances of getting re-elected, as Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats did for Obama on Obamacare.

    • Chuck

      Since Pelosi, et.al. wrote the the bill that is now the law-of-the-land how do you figure they sacraficed themselve? They did it because they wanted to and there was very little input from the White House.

    • The Sarge

      Were you paying attention last November when the House Speaker became the Minority Leader because of the way she ran the House of Representatives under her regime…???

  • True Patriot

    The internet is the only place to find out the truth about this illegal communist muslim usurping fraud and Jihadist.

    Time for this dangerous illegal foreign alien to be unseated. Congress do your damn job NOW or we will do it for you.

    • BobLaBlau

      Further, if you don’t do your job and are fully cognizant of his crimes, and you are, that makes you a criminal accessory. Unlike a foreigner who can’t, that also makes you a traitor and elible for the death penalty. You all have copies of his Kenyan BC, and you know of his antiAmerican actions.

      So far there is free speech in this country.
      We’ve got to get rid of this bastard.
      Why did people vote for him? Didn’t they listen to what he wanted to do to this country? Or did they really think they were going to get free health care?

    • RT

      Haven’t you noticed that Obama has the ability to decieve people very well. In addition to this, the ignorant people who voted for him, many of them want this nation to fall. Haven’t you noticed, Obama has been on like 10 vacations in two years, he’s always way from the white house and press, unless he is at a basketball game or golfing. He is avoiding the People to do his WICKEDNESS, and it is working because our SORRY ASS CONGRESS AND SENATE HAS NOT BALLS. They are a bunch of scary jackasses! DO YOUR JOB Senate and Congress and IMPEACH THIS MAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!BEFORE IT’S TO LATE

    • Janschie

      “Free speech” does not mean “free hatred”.

  • Loisirene

    How does this afffect Obama’s left wing websites? Will the rules apply to them? Incredible how this news item isn’t making the news, but I shouldn’t be surprised with this administration & its sycophants.

      Barry wants his own web sites and those of his commiecrat supporters to hog all the bandwidth and does not want the ISPs to be able to do anything about it.

  • American with a birth certificate…

    Looks like obama and the democrats want to have complete control. Hello America,are you ready to let the white house decide what you can have and have not?Remember,obama and the democrats want to stop your freedoms here in America,gun control no freedom of speach and shut up and do as I tell you to do. Hello obama voters,Please move to the socialist country of your choice but stop voting these obama democrat commies into office. If you do not want to live free and be free then stop trying to force all Americans to go along with your commie socialist movement and just leave America and move to any other country of your choice. Anyone who is voting for obama and any other democrats are anti American scum sucking commies. I will keep my guns and fight until death to remain free.

    “Disapproval of the rule would threaten those values and raise questions as to whether innovation on the Internet will be allowed to flourish, consumers will be protected from abuses, and the democratic spirit of the Internet will remain intact,” the White House statement read.

    Well damn that makes sense doesn’t it?

    That poor internet has been struggling mightily to survive and all those poor people with data on their phones are being abused and there just have only been 10 or 20 billionaires created so Government is here to fix that for us.

      What you are saying is dependent on President Valerie Jarrett not telling him to do another false flag attack on America, and then shut down the Congress and SCOTUS.

    The Net Neutrality bill is no protection for the Internet as they would have you believe. It is the nose of the camel under the tent, the foot in the door so that in the future, new rules for the control of the Internet can be funneled through without congress ever having a say about them. It gives enormous power to the FCC commissionor who was hand picked by Obama because of his views on the control of free speech. This bill must be stopped or we will be no better off than the citizens of China, Egypt and Libya who found all of their communications cut of (Cell phones, internet, twitter and everything) because all media were under the control of the government. That’s where this is going.

    I agree with Jim’s statement. Barack Hussein Obamais NOT my President. He has not supplied the credentials necessary to be eligible. Based on the evidence available, I do not believe he can. I also agree that I do NOT live in the UN and that proven corrupt organization will never rule me. By the way, Jim, BHO is not Black — he is mixed breed 1/2 white, 1/2 black. Just because he filed a fraudulent statement on the illegal Census questionaire to state he was black doesn’t make it so. Semper Fi — the US Marines will not protect him in the event we have to go to Washington and physically remove him from office. If he’s not the President, he is NOT “commander in chief” and there is no need for anyone in the armed forces to obey his orders. His days ARE numbered!!

    • BobLaBlau

      Doooon’t do it! If you impeach, that is a tacit recognition that he was a president. All his criminal acts as president will be set in stone. If he is ruled ineligible by the SCOTUS next month, all he has said or done as president will be as if it never happened.

    Net neutrality would only ensure an ISP could not control thier own network which would allow the government or radicals to over load servers and disrupt and prevent the free flow of financial and other information.

  • FRANK ZAPPA

    Obama is the result of just how far as a nation we have fallen, and why stupid people should not be allowed to vote. Since Obama has been “President” (What a Joke) I have NEVER personally referred to Obama as “President” because he is NOT a US Citizen, but wait there’s more. In order that The New World Order come into existence Obama and “Hittlary Clintong” MUST take your weapons / Guns, which means NO MORE FREE SPEECH, NO More protection for family and loved ones, no more hunting, and with all that no more liberty “How Exciting” I just can’t wait. When you loose the ability to own and posses fire arms you loose everything this country was founded upon. Obama is a greasy, slime ball punk who has never fired a weapon in his life, let alone a Daisy B B Gun, so in essence he would most likely wet his pants if he were ever put into a combat zone and had to fight for his life. You see it is easy to legislate from “The Chair” but when reality comes into play Obama is no more qualified to run this country than to wipe his own “Assets.” Obama is not a “Military Man” so he is living in “Fantasy Land” thinking if we “Play Nice” so will everyone else. Obama is a traitor, he is seditious, and has promoted heresies, but we here in America have lost the guts to deal with traitors, once upon a time we executed traitors but now we just placate then and toss out threats. We have lost America, we have lost God in the schools, in our country and worse yet we don’t give a damn because we are too involved with Baseball, Football, Basketball, Video Games, TV and anything other than God. A case in point Obama seems to love Golf and “Basketball” he spends more time preforming these activities than he does executing the office of “The Presidency.” It is not a crime to relax but it is a crime when he spends money like there is no tomorrow. As a matter of fact few people if any have ever read The Bible cover to cover. Apathy is the operative phrase for America. Failure to turn to The God who loves America WILL RESULT in “THE DESTRUCTION OF AMERICA.” Laugh all you want but in the end it is God who will either get your attention or it will be a God who has the last laugh.

  • rhurt

    Lets not forget that is the basic operating standard for the entire Democratic party-there may be one exception but don’t try to count on it. The basic truth is that the Democrats lie, cheat, steal, and do just about anything that will guarentee them power, money, and anything that is non-American and US Constitution. We got an Islamic Obama that uses the cover of Socialism, Communism, Pregressiveism, Blackism, Abortionism, any ism fits to cover his true agenda-as long it is bent on destroying America-the Constitution, the Family, and Christianity. Freedom is his enemy and good is called bad-with bad being called good by Obama and accomplices. It is time to strike the Democrats out of the American picture and their accomplices-the Major Media, Liberals, Wackos, and Muslims. These people are now the enemy of the USA by their own dishonest words and evident deeds.

  • Olesarge

    Don’t get me wrong. I am not a fan of Mr Obama by any stretch of the imagination. Many of you have been calling him a bafoon, moron, idiot, dummy, stupid, etc. The man is no dummy. He is a very intelligent, manipulative and cunning person. He knows exactly what he is doing. He is dividing the American people and pitting them against each other. There are powerful forces behind the scenes supporting and financing this man. In 2007 how many of you even knew who he was? At the start of the 2008 campaign everyone, myself included, thought Hillary Clinton had the nomination in the bag. The primaries were a formality. Did anyone wonder, like I did, how this virtual unknown came from left field and took the nomination and the White House? In my state of Michigan, the Democratic Party decided that the state held their primaries too soon and chose not to recognize them. Had the votes been counted in Michigan, it is possible that Hillary could have taken the nomination. Does anyone question that? No dummy could have pulled all that off. I don’t just blame the people that voted all these socialists into office. At least they voted. Some of the blame is also the 50% plus who don’t vote. They all have their reasons. Some say voting is a waste of time because the elections are rigged anyway. Others say they didn’t like any of the candidates so they didn’t vote. My favorite, “I don’t vote so you can’t blame me for all the problems we have.” WRONG! Those who don’t vote deserve the government they get. I hope the day never comes when they discover that a minority of voters have voted all their rights away. Instead of playing the finger pointing blame game, lets all do something to encourage those who don’t to get out and vote. We need to get the people to wake up before it is really too late. I am reminded of what Edward R. Murrow said many years ago but still holds true today. “A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves.”

  • Doug Rodrigues

    Until Barack Obama produces an original copy of his Hawaii Birth Record, I can only assume that he’s a fraud illegally holding the office of President of the United States. As Nikita Kruschev once said, “We won’t have to go to war with the United States, we will overcome you from within.” Obama comes from that half of society of American Constitution haters (mostly Democrats) who believe in Socialism, whether or not they call it that. The Communist influence which permeated our “Educational” systems since the 50′s have done their jobs well. The Politicial Correctness, “Tolerance,” and “Diversity” taught in schools have created useful idiots for the socialistic cause. This may all come to a head one of these years via a shooting Civil War. The left wing politicians had better have eyes behind of their heads, because they’ll be the first targets. Perhaps that’s the reason why the Democrats want so badly to take your guns? Buy ammo while you can.
