This week’s winner, Joshuapundit’s Obama Appoints Hamas Ally To Key National Security Post is my examination of yet another questionable appointment by President Obama to an extremely sensitive national security post…and what it signifies. Here’s a slice:

The man pictured above is Robert Malley. Today, it was announced that President Obama has appointed him the senior director at the National Security Council (NSC).

The NSC is the key body that advises President Obama and helps make decisions on national security and foreign policy matters. Its members consist of,among others, the vice president, the Secretaries of State, Homeland Security and Defense, the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the Director of National Intelligence, the president’s National Security Advisor and the deputy Adviser, the Attorney General and the president’s UN Adviser.Other special assistants to the president also attend as required.

In other words, this is President Obama’s ‘inner cabinet’ on national security, so to speak. The members, the top level members of the Obama Administrations, are privy to all of America’s intelligence, planning and confidential data.

So who is Robert Malley?

Of Syrian descent,he was a Clinton-era National Security Council staffer known for his tirades against Israel and his championing of Yasser Arafat. He made waves by blaming the Israelis for the failure of the 2000 Camp David summit, thereby contradicting the words of President Bill Clinton and every other U.S. official present, and rationalizing and defending Arafat’s terrorist war on Israel’s civilians.

Malley was a close crony of then presidential candidate Barack Hussein Obama and a foreign policy adviser to the campaign back in 2008. Way back then, Candidate Obama still saw the necessity of getting clueless American Jews to vote for him, so when it surfaced that Robert Malley was meeting actively with the genocidal terrorist group Hamas, Obama took the opportunity to remove him from the campaign in 2008 as a gesture to prove his pro-Israel bonifides.

According to 18 U.S. Code § 2339B, providing material assistance to a designated terrorist group (which includes advice) is supposedly a federal offense, But Robert Malley had powerful friends (including Clinton NSA adviser Sandy Berger and Senator Barack Obama, whom he was pals with at Harvard) so he simply drifted back into the world of think tanks, where he could be relied on to write articles and make speeches demonizing Israel.

And actually, according to he Arabic-language newspaper Al-Hayat, Malley never really left Obama’s circle. Al-Hayat reported that Hamas engaged in talks with Obama for months through Malley, which among other things resulted in their receiving almost a billion of your tax dollars from President Obama.

Robert Malley comes by this honestly. His father Simon was a very Marxist journalist who shilled for Algeria’s terrorist FLN, Egyptian dictator Gamel Abdul Nasser, African Marxist dictators like Kwame Nkrumah and Ahmed Sékou Touré, Fidel Castro, and of course, Yasser Arafat, of whom he was especially fond. Needless to say, Simon Malley also had an outspoken hatred towards Israel, and the apple definitely did not fall far from the tree.

Once Barack Obama became president, as we now know, he spent a great deal of time during his first term concentrating on bashing and attacking the Israel, giving the Arabs whom identify themselves as Palestinians more U.S. money than they’d ever seen in their lives and in general behaving like Mahmoud Abbas’ own special community organizer.

That moderated a bit in 2012 when the president needed to fool people again for his re-election, but now that President Obama has no need to dissemble any longer, Malley will join the other members of the Obama Administration who have a long time record of hostility towards Israel.And he will be privy to America’s most highly classified secrets.

Malley has some interesting ties with Islamists worth looking at. Among Malley’s close associates is Wadah Khanfar, a Hamas activist based in the Middle East and South Africa (where he headed the International Islamic Federation of Student Organizations) and now a key figure with al-Jazeera, AKA Jihad TV. According to one of my sources, Malley also has a relationship with our old friend Muslim Brotherhood leader Yusuf al-Qaradawi, a foul genocidal maniac who is too dirty even to be allowed into the U.S.

Palin Derangement Syndrome Revisited

Sarah Palin Collage

The logical GOP opponent for Hillary Clinton in 2016 is Sarah Palin with a Ted Cruz chaser…  She Can Win, latest poll agrees !!

By Marion Algier - AskMarion

‘State of Daniel’ recently posted “Palin Derangement Syndrome Exposed,” on YouTube, as a response to earlier video: Prediction: Sarah Palin 2016 (see both below), in which he addressed common lies spoken and spread by detractors of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.

He addressed the “quitter” meme, and gave a very accurate and succinct explanation of why Governor Palin resigned her office including frivolous ethics complaints and suits that would have driven her into bankruptcy and had already cost the state over $2 million. All the complaints and suits were ultimately dismissed and Governor Palin was cleared of any wrong doing.

Daniel also addressed the skewd Game Change movie, which was based on ‘one chapter’ out of the book based on the accounts of consultants whose goal was to save their own hides.

Palin Derangement Syndrome was created by a team of Jour’no’lists who were directed by the powers that be to discredit Palin, because they, RINOs and Progressives from both, feared her (and still do)… and the mainstream media carried their water! They feared her connection with average Americans so much that they continued the collusion with contrived lawsuits and endless fabricated negative press including attacks on Palin’s children.  AARP sold out the seniors, for their piece of the health insurance pie, by convincing them that ObamaCare and Obama’s policies would help them.  And the various groups of disenchanted as well as young people turned out in droves for Obama, in part, because the Democrat Party had tapped into social media and the Republicans were (and still are) far behind

But what we are seeing is that Millennials, who supported Obama in record numbers are now disenchanted with ‘the president’, ‘his policies’ and ‘Progressivism’. They are also insulted by the campy ObamaCare Ads being run on their behalf… so Millennials are abandoning all three and doing their homework, looking for real alternatives.

Video: Prediction: Sarah Palin 2016 

Video:  Palin Derangement Syndrome Exposed 

As CNN and former Senator Jim DeMint, now from the Heritage Foundation, have said , “Palin’s influence has far from diminished; her endorsement is the most valued you can get in Conservative circles, and her popularity is growing across the board because people are finally taking the initiative to do their homework instead of listening to the Progressive ‘government media’ which is only getting more restrictive and one-sided as the FCC wants to put monitors in all the news rooms. Conservative candidates like Ted Cruz call Sarah Palin the ‘Kingmaker’ and he credits Palin for his victory. Millennials want jobs, opportunity and a way to payoff their student loans and they are smart enough to know that America is headed in the wrong direction for them!

Sarah Palin has a long list of accomplishments as Mayor of Wasilla, going head to head with the oil companies and the “Corrupt Bastards Club”, as Governor of Alaska and as a fearless political activist whereas Lanny Davis, former Clinton White House Counsel, recently struggled  when asked in an interview to come up with a single accomplishment of Hillary Clinton’s as Secretary of State, without even addressing her lies and negative role in Benghazi.  And Dick Morris, a former Clinton advisor only has tales of horror, lies and scandal about Hillary…  Don’t forget, Hillary was fired way back when, off the Watergate investigation Committee, for lying and HillaryCare her version of ObamaCare is even worse…  Yet the Dems are set on running Hillary for 2016 using the carrot of electing the 1st female president.

The logical opponent for Hillary Clinton is Sarah Palin with a Ted Cruz chaser…  And if we want to win in 2016, it is time to start pressuring Reince Priebus at the RNC to look at the obvious and to dump as many potted plants (Sarah’s words) as possible in the upcoming 2014 Elections that are just taking up room in both houses of Congress, or worse yet the traitors working against the American people..

Sarah Palin Enough is Enough

Looking for real change…

Russia topped the table for total medals (29) with gold medals (13). The United States was second in total medals with (28), but only fourth in gold medals with (9); with neither country’s men’s team winning medals in hockey let alone playing the highly anticipated second USA-Russia ‘Gold Medal Match’.  Norway won (26) medals -- (11) gold -- and Canada took (25) including the Golds in both men’s and women’s hockey… and the Netherlands virtually swept the skating medals.

Book of the Week –A Woman's Guide to Gun Ownership” / Kindle – By Zoltan Fogassy

Women's Guide to Gun Ownership Let’s face it, even in this day and age, sexism still exists. Women can be ignored, talked down to, or misinformed about many things cloaked under the guise of male-dominated markets—particularly gun buying and ownership.

But owning a gun isn’t a guy thing. It’s a right and privilege to which we all are entitled, regardless of gender, and women need to approach the shopping and shooting scenarios with confidence so they can make informed decisions; avoid costly mistakes; and, ultimately, realize the joy, security, and peace of mind that come with gun ownership.

A positive, easy-to-use guide for first-time or novice gun buyers, A Woman's Guide to Gun Ownership empowers women with the knowledge they need to shop for, purchase, and own a firearm. It explains the fundamentals of how guns work, the different types of firearms available, and their usage for home defense, as well as offering tips for how to combat bias when talking with gun shop employees, friends, and family members.

Additional features of this must-read text include interviews with female gun owners and information on websites, clubs, organizations, and other resources to which women can turn to further expand and understand their ownership experience.

My husband and I met Zolty and her autographed my book.  We visited him at the shooting range he owns.  He sais the most common comment he gets from women is that “Every women needs a gun and needs to learn how to shoot it!!” …AskMarion

EXCLUSIVE: Former NSA Employee Speaks Out About its Corruption – Gulag Bound

NSA whistleblower, anonymous…

National_Security_AgencyGulag Bound by Sher Zieve  -  Cross Posted at AskMarion: At the very least, for the past few months to a year it has become increasingly evident that–although not all–many agencies of the US Federal government have become increasingly dirty, perverse and corrupt and require a deep and thorough cleaning. The US Secret Service has previously been exposed as “including claims of involvement with prostitutes, leaking sensitive information, publishing pornography, sexual assault, illegal wiretaps, improper use of weapons and drunken behavior” and the IRS was caught and admitted to denying Obama’s political enemies (aka “TEA Party, Christians, religious Jews, conservatives) their Constitutional rights while allowing “progressive” groups (aka liberals, leftists, Marxists, Maoists, socialists, communists) theirs. And–love him, hate him or fall somewhere in-between–Edward Snowden shined a very bright light on the unconstitutional domestic mega-spying of one of these clandestine agencies–the National Security Agency. Thus far, under Obama’s increasingly iron rule, few-to-no members of these agencies have even been indicted by Congress for their blatant crimes against the American people.

The NSA appears to have begun as a patriotic organization that was geared toward protecting the USA and its citizens. Whether or not that was its original intended purpose is a subject for discussion and speculation. However, portions of the NSA seem to have devolved into something very sinister. Today’s interview will concentrate on this agency.

A few weeks ago, I came into contact with a former NSA Analyst. Due to a number of substantive reasons, this former Analyst’s identity cannot be divulged at this time and will be referred to as “W.” I have, however, confirmed this individual’s prior employment and credentials via a well-known NSA “Whistleblower.” The information disseminated to me, amongst other things tells a sordid story of corruption and how employees are silenced into submission–via fear–within the agency,

The Interview:

Sher: Thanks so much for being with me, today, in order to provide essential additional information to the public on how many of their tax dollars are really being spent. You were employed by the NSA for over two decades. Would you tell the readers what initially attracted you to the agency as well as how it has deteriorated over time?

W: Like many people from families with a strong history of serving our country, coming out of college, I looked to find a way to best utilize my particular interests and talents in service to my fellow Americans. The mission of the NSA it seemed to me, was to stop threats coming to our shores. It’s charter clearly targeted foreign nationals on foreign soil who did or could intend us harm. That appealed to me as a righteous endeavor and honorable tack for my life to take.

Sher: You’ve shared with me how the NSA deals with its employees who bring legitimate complaints to their superiors. How thoroughly intimidating and threatening are their behaviors toward those who balk at their adverse treatment? Would you give a few examples?

Michael Hayden

Michael Hayden, now with the Chertoff Group

W: Apparently the nature of NSA Security degenerated under General Michael Hayden, the previous Director of NSA (DIRNSA), who promoted a very questionable mid-level Security manager to a power position within Security. Hayden had originally been tasked to eviscerate NSA since a very shallow and short-sighted Congress believed that the fall of the Iron Curtain meant no danger existed anywhere anymore that required the existence of a robust NSA presence. There evolved, under him, a gratuitously vicious bully mindset that employees were to be intimidated at any opportunity not only to drive them out of NSA but to cut back on people reporting problems that made NSA look bad, especially problems involving upper management.

Under Hayden and his successor, General Keith Alexander, the filing of complaints to or requests for investigations by the NSA EEO or the OIG (Office of the Inspector General) were often inexplicably blown off despite adequate evidence or the presence of willing witnesses. Then the person who had filed the complaint would be subjected to an out of cycle “reinvestigation” interview with Security as well as polygraph exam, wherein the tone of the Security person was not neutral–as it should be–but, hostile with far-fetched or even ridiculous non-issues presented as potentially problematic. This was a Security shot across the bow to warn the person that he had crossed the line by filing the complaint. If he pursued the complaint, Security would lean on his managers to heavily discourage him from doing what he thought was proper and was indeed a protected action under the law. If he persisted, did his own amateur investigation, or told coworkers about the situation, he might be called down to Security multiple times and accused of being “paranoid and delusional” based on his complaint, and his job threatened.

The worse the infraction reported, especially if a high level manager looked to be involved, the more severe the reaction by Security. In cases of egregious wrong-doing by a manager, Security would review the personnel files, medical files, and financial statements to find anything they could use to threaten or blackmail him with, or pretend to misinterpret some tidbit of information as something it was not.

Some people were forced to sign admissions of guilt of preposterous misinterpretations of facts in order to keep their jobs, thereby killing their credibility and complaint. When nothing was found in such files that could be used, a false accusation of espionage or leaking classified materials ginned up by Security, was used to justify a Security intrusion into the person’s home to search for blackmail material, further assess the interests and personality of the targeted individual (TI), and plant bugs and abscond with an extra set of keys for further intrusions. The more the person objected to being bullied, the more heavy-handed Security became, insisting that hostility toward them indicated wrong-doing on the TI’s part. Thus the TI would become harried and harassed for a crime he never committed, if it ever even was committed, and to repeated accusations by Security Psych services of a non-existent mental illness, more than adequately supported by years of internal, psychological evaluations stating he was mentally sound (Paranoia with delusions is rare and certainly never occurs overnight, but that does not deter a Security psychologist attack dog, whose favorite mode of attack employs reference to this malady).

The more a person stood his ground, the more “personal” it became to Security, which then became dedicated to the personal destruction of the TI. Under the pretext of the fake accusation of espionage or leaking classified information, Security would slander the individual with his coworkers, work friends and managers to isolate him and apply yet more pressure. Many backed away from supporting the TI in fear for their careers and maybe even freedom. Certainly this sent a message to the workforce in the TI’s area that NSA Security was at its essence, a rogue, unaccountable and psychotic entity that was to be greatly feared.

Once NSA Security had decided upon the removal of the TI for failing to be sufficiently cowed, then false evidence was given to the FBI liaisons assigned to NSA. This would engender a fraudulent FISA warrant, which loosed FBI surveillance and investigators upon the person for a few weeks or months, further slandering him to his work and social circles and thereby putting pressure on him by their constant presence. When the FBI would find no basis for the accusation, they would drop the case and move on. However, at that point, Security would send in their own personnel sans warrant, to overtly stalk and harass the TI , 24/7. In some instances, Security has even gone into the person’s neighborhood to recruit “snitches” and augment harassment with hostile civilians convinced the TI is an enemy of the state, based on baseless Security slander. Intrusions would be made into his home to remove gathered evidence or move things around as a psychological ploy and his car would be secretly “GPS’d” to facilitate vehicular stalking and aggressive driving games. There have even been reports of pet murders by poisoning as an escalation of the harassment with the inferred threat that perhaps it could be the TI’s child or himself next. The harassment is essentially elevated until the TI either “breaks” and assaults a harasser or complains to Security about the insane and sadistic, not to mention criminal way in which he is being mistreated. This is what Security planned for and is ready to jump on as their springboard to terminating his employment.

His security clearance is immediately pulled, he is warehoused in a menial job until adequate paperwork and a back-story can be fabricated or forged to falsely present a termination due to mental instability or illness, and the person is fired. Of course there is an appeals process, but it is thoroughly corrupted. No matter how much evidence supports the victim and how little supports NSA, NSA always “wins” these cases where it is clear the person was targeted for dismissal. Of course, this does nothing but embolden more degenerate or criminal behavior while making it clear that the person reporting evil will be considered the problem, and that in reality no labor laws or whistle protection laws can actually protect an NSA employee, because real watch dog entities don’t exist within NSA and state and Federal authorities routinely turn a blind eye to the reported abuses even as they become more criminal and seditious.

usintelligenceI shake my head at sycophant, disingenuous politicians who claim Edward Snowden could have or should have gone through “proper internal authorities” to report the abuses and criminal acts being committed within NSA. Would that be to the thoroughly corrupted, attack dog-watch dog entities, or the thoroughly oblivious or compromised politicians responsible for oversight who are in fact, in the NSA’s pocket due to bribery, blackmail or stupidity?

Sher: The NSA seems to suffer from the some of the same maladies as did the recent outing of the Secret Service. Without becoming too specific, would you give us a general idea as to advancement for sexual favors that have occurred within the agency? How defeating is that to employees who are simply working to protect the country while their bosses are indulging in sexual liaisons with lower level employees?

W: In my career, promotions were always hard to come by, meted out perhaps every five years if you were a good or exceptional worker, but male managers discovered that they held the keys to paradise in regard to attractive or even “acceptable” women willing to take shortcuts. These were the women who would make promotions in stunningly rapid succession with little to no accomplishments – of their own, that is. While others killed themselves with years of grueling shift work or even multiple dangerous foreign assignments only to find themselves evaluated as a 3.6 on a scale of 5, when an attractive, morally loose recent college graduate would receive a 4.8 for essentially alphabetizing a shelf of reference books her first 6 months on the job. This made many, many people bitter and certainly sent the wrong signal to the hardest workers and the most talented. Though many stopped being as dedicated to their jobs, others did indeed press ahead and worked tirelessly knowing their reward was the mission accomplished and not likely appropriate recognition. Capable men despaired of receiving deserved promotions and women almost feared being promoted for exceptional work, fearing they would be assumed to be one of the typically incapable promotion bimbos among the bloated management. Expertise and knowledge became commodities to guard and not share with new workers, fearing you would not reap the benefits of your own work. This of course created a situation where expertise and insight must be gained and regained from scratch, losing precious time training up area or target experts to the detriment of the mission.

It was very discouraging to see immature or degenerate bosses spending their time flirting and chasing skirts, the very same people who were charged with competently reviewing your work, (keeping apprised of the big picture so people felt free to specialize their research), and whose responsibility it was to accurately and honestly represent their people before promotion boards. But the atmosphere of secrecy, the strict laws about divulging names of NSA employees or anything that occurred there, emboldened certain men to believe that their wives and families would never know of their indiscretions, and turned work time into play time for them. And now apparently young males are also being pursued as sexual toys. One has to wonder what is being missed in the realm of highly perishable intelligence leads by distracted managerial incompetents.

Sher: As an additional example of NSA intimidation, one of the things you’d said may be shared is your experience with the “3 Amigos.” Would you tell us about them?

W: There were three eccentric looking older males who were often seen in the NSA OPS1 cafeteria together, whom we also got to know by word of mouth, as master electricians well-versed in computer science. They were nicknamed by some in the analyst field as “Rasputin”, “Santa”, and “Choo Choo” or “the engineer”, due to their highly unusual appearances and dress. One eye witness being harassed on yet another NSA Security retaliatory witch hunt, reported seeing one of these men at her home, on her property, when she discovered indications that her home had been broken into, her cable box broken into, and her phone hacked, leaving tell-tale clicking sounds at regular intervals whenever she used her phone. Any phone tap done by warrant is done at the carrier’s hub under their auspices and will not “click”, only illegal hack jobs “click”.  She noted him not only as a trespasser being somewhere he should not have been, but recognized him by his highly unusual appearance from work. When she attempted to look him up in the NSA data base by career specialty, she found that what should have been his photo, which should have been a source of pride since he was of the rank to be a Flag Badger (Manager whose rank is senior enough to garner a photo with the American flag in the background), was instead a photo of a desert animal called a Meercat indicating that he wanted his identity hidden from the general NSA population.

Sher: With regards to many who have said that the NSA’s collection of meta-data on all forms of communication between legal citizens of the USA is unconstitutional, also indicated is the fact that not one terrorist act has been stopped by said collection. It appears good old-fashioned police work is what still gets the “perp.” In your opinion, is this accurate?

W: I think it is indeed true that the meta data collection ruse within the USA distracts from tried and true research and investigation, which the latter method apparently did indeed uncover the 9/11 plot months before it happened, well in time to have prevented it, according to two separate analysts with whom I have spoken, one just two days after 9/11 as he broke down and sobbed his heart out, repeating “We could have saved them! We could have saved them! But they wouldn’t let us report it!”, and the other several years later, who maintained the same story of being threatened and forbidden to report any warning about 9/11, then being harassed and fired for a non-existent mentally illness. However, it is a good means to track your political enemies and detractors and their affiliates within the US – for future reference? It would appear much more for the self-preservation and expansion of NSA as the ubiquitous Orwellian Big Brother than for the protection of the USA. With the power the NSA wields, it could easily influence border control issues and immigration issues to make us not as susceptible to terrorist intrusions and infiltrations, but that would undermine their power grab and expansion within the US, something never intended at NSA’s creation – and for good reason.

Sher: As a former long time employee of the NSA, what do you believe–if anything–can be done to correct the problems within the agency?Clapper-James-before-Senate-Armed-Services-Cmte-AFP

W: There is no doubt that NSA is now run by those sycophants and sociopaths who are the least desirable to have in any position of such sensitivity and trust and are purging NSA ranks of people with integrity. Compromising activity that would rightfully cost you your clearance, is now viewed as intrinsic perks of the job once you reach a certain pay grade. These lesser leaders have turned NSA into an American Gestapo Wanna-Be agency. NSA lost its way with non-serious super grade playboys not mature enough for the responsibility of the job of managing and directing NSA, compounding the problem by promoting sycophants to protect their backs as well as lightweights with whom to have “sexcapades” behind office doors, but in that group also has risen opportunistic sociopaths and psychopaths attracted to more and more power, any way they can get it, and by conniving and ruthlessness have blown past incompetent, distracted management to change the very nature of the NSA from watchman to the American people to jack booted prison guard.

If the Legislative Branch is possessed of anyone with the least bit of courage and common sense, they would demand super clearances for those on the Intelligence Oversight Committees so that years or decades of abusive behaviors, kingdom building, or even crimes can not continually be swept under the rug by telling these particular politicians, “You don’t have the need to know, just trust us.” Obviously, they cannot be trusted. An appointment to that Committee would of course have to become much more exclusive, requiring a thorough vetting as any job with a Top Secret clearance should. But to deal with the toxic management at NSA now, I would require every Flag Badger and Security manager to account for himself and what he adds to the mission. If he is pork, retire him or require him to laterally transfer to another agency. Before that however, I would require that every single Flag Badger and every Security group manager take a polygraph by non-NSA affiliated or non-NSA sympathetic sources to account for the millions of dollars wasted on their vicious and illegal war on NSA employees who dutifully report fraud, waste, abuse as well as sexual predation and treason. Those who are found to be guilty of such things as falsifying accusations against innocent employees; fabricating false witnesses and evidence; engaging in illegal acts of breaking and entering; falsifying FISA warrant justifications; lying to the FBI about a targeted victim’s criminality; falsifying psychological assessments; subverting lie detector exams by screaming at the targeted subject during or just before the exam to create false impressions of guilt; hiding or destroying exonerating evidence supporting their victims’ claims; intimidating or roughing up witnesses; coordinating or participating in criminal stalking and harassment activities, illegal break-ins, illegal wire taps, organizing and paying civilian groups under the table to augment harassment of targeted employees, and lastly, conspiring to effect or cover up any or all of these actions. And any NSA employee in that group who pleads the 5th, should be fired and stripped of his retirement since this type of betrayal rots a country from within. NSA must be recreated, and returned to the stated task in their founding charter of focusing on foreign enemies overseas.

Sher: W, so much of the information you’ve provided is truly astounding!  Thanks so much for being with us today and I hope you’ll be available for another should ongoing events require one.

FCC Plans to Issue New 'Net Neutrality' Rules

WSJ:  WASHINGTON—The Federal Communications Commission said Wednesday it would again issue rules to prevent Internet service providers from blocking or slowing down access to content providers that don't pay a toll to reach consumers.

However, analysts said the rules could open the door for broadband providers to cut deals with content companies like Netflix Inc. NFLX -1.97% or Google Inc. GOOG -0.71% to give their products some kind of advantage, either though speed or prominent placement.

The FCC's announcement means it doesn't plan to reclassify broadband as a public utility at present, as Democrats and public-interest groups had urged. Doing so would give the FCC much greater authority to set rules for broadband providers.

Supporters say treating all Internet traffic equally, a concept known as net neutrality, is crucial to keeping the Internet open and allowing smaller companies to compete with the biggest content providers. But the courts have ruled against the FCC's previous attempts to enforce net neutrality on companies like Comcast Corp. CMCSA -3.66% and Verizon Communications Inc. VZ +1.20% that provide Internet connections to households and businesses.

Last month, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit threw out FCC rules barring providers from blocking or slowing down websites, but it acknowledged the FCC has some authority to regulate broadband-company practices under a section of the 1996 Telecommunications Act that gives it broad authority to encourage U.S. broadband service.

The FCC said Wednesday it won't appeal the D.C. Circuit's ruling. Instead, it plans to take advantage of Section 706, of the law to propose new rules in the late spring or early summer, after soliciting public comment.

"The FCC must stand strongly behind its responsibility to oversee the public interest standard and ensure that the Internet remains open and fair," FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler said in a statement. "The Internet is and must remain the greatest engine of free expression, innovation, economic growth and opportunity the world has ever known."

The court said in January that the FCC could impose a "no blocking" rule if it found a different legal justification. Mr. Wheeler's statement indicates the FCC will do just that, by establishing a minimum standard for how broadband companies treat content. The rules would likely outline expectations and unacceptable practices for broadband providers, and provide for case-by-case enforcement when websites complain of unfair discrimination.

Analysts said the new rules could pave the way for deals between Internet providers and content companies to carry their content to consumers at higher speeds. Paul Gallant, a telecom policy analyst at Guggenheim Securities, said his reading of the commission's principles is that the agency is more likely to focus on policing anti-competitive conduct than on discouraging the content deals.

"I think the FCC will be inclined to permit voluntary paid prioritization deals," he said.

Even with that caveat, Republicans are opposed to the new proposed rules. "I am deeply concerned by the announcement that the FCC will begin considering new ways to regulate the Internet," FCC Commissioner Michael O'Rielly said. "The Obama administration refuses to abandon its furious pursuit of these harmful policies to put government in charge of the Web," House Energy and Commerce Chairman Fred Upton (R., Mich.) and Rep. Greg Walden (R., Ore.) said in a statement.

Any rules would have to be approved by a vote of the five-member commission, which includes three Democrats and two Republicans.

Net neutrality supporters, however, were disappointed with the FCC's decision not to reclassify broadband Internet as a public utility, which they had argued was the only way to make the rules stand up in court.

Andy Schwartzman, a telecom lawyer and adviser to the anti-media consolidation group Free Press, said not reclassifying broadband "would be repeating the biggest mistake" made during prior efforts by former FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski.

Broadband providers have argued that reclassification would be disastrous for the industry because it would subject them to regulations designed for the landline phone system. "We think reclassification would probably be the ultimate death of the broadband market," Comcast Executive Vice President David Cohen said in an interview last week. "We think it would dry up private investment and destroy all the gains made in the broadband market in the U.S."

Cohen's comments were made in the context of his company's bid to acquire Time Warner Cable Inc. TWC -2.75% Comcast has already agreed to abide by the FCC's net neutrality rules, even though they were struck down in court, as part of its acquisition of NBC-Universal in 2011. Comcast has also agreed to extend the agreement to Time Warner Cable Inc. subscribers if that acquisition is approved.

Mr. Wheeler has left the reclassification option open for now, which could serve as a deterrent for broadband providers seeking to challenge the rules in court again.

A Verizon spokesman said the company said it wouldn't appeal last month's court ruling, and that it is too early to determine whether it would challenge the FCC's latest rules.

As part of the process, the FCC will also examine ways to encourage competition in the broadband market. That could include removing legal restrictions that prevent cities and towns from building their own broadband or Wi-Fi networks.

FCC Plan For Newsroom Monitors Sparks Constitutional Concern - Wake Up America - America's Newsroom

Sekulow explains this very well - FCC gives license to broadcasters, but the FCC is also doing this for newspapers which do not come under the authority of the FCC.

Audio: RUSH: Media Wouldn’t Oppose Regime Monitors In Newsrooms

RUSH/EIB: It’s clear the Regime thought they could get away with doing this this time. Hugo Chavez used to do things like this all the time. Now, here’s the question. Let’s just go hypothetically here. Let’s say that Adweek did not discover the study has been suspended. Let’s say it’s gonna go forward. At some point, they’re gonna try it. Will major American media organizations stand up and righteously, indignantly oppose this?

I can make the case that I don’t think they would.  Most people think instinctively, reflexively, the media not gonna put up with it something like that.  “No way! You’re gonna have a government monitor in my newsroom? You’re gonna be quote/unquote ‘monitoring’ the stories I choose to cover and the stories I don’t want to cover, and you are gonna be cataloging what you think is my bias?  No way, pal!”  But I can see where, given the current circumstances that exist today, they wouldn’t oppose it. 

In fact, I could make the case to you that they would welcome it.  I explained this to Snerdley today.  He could not believe me.  He did not believe that I was being serious.  “You’re joking,” he said.  No.  I can make the case where journalism schools would not oppose it but instead will support it — and I’ll bet I could make the case to you, given current circumstances.  I think the media might look at it as an opportunity to get even closer to Obama.  I think some might look at it as a way of impressing Obama.
