Welp, the FCC has made the decision to revoke the Net Neutrality regulations that were put in place back in 2015 by the Obama administration. And of course, with this repeal the sob storm and mass hysteria disinformation campaign sprung up all over the Internet, with some exceptions. So tell me this, Net Neutrality supporters where are the ISPs throttling the content, censoring the internet, and charging us extra for websites?. Oh yeah, that’s right it’s not happening, because it was misinformed mythology, it’s amazing. This repeal will actually restore the Internet back to its more free state before 2015. This is only the first step in getting the Internet back, what we need to do next is to reverse the ICANN regulation of Internet domains back to the United States, Get our free speech rights back on Twitter (etc), and finally bring back Megaupload, a file sharing site created by Kim Dotcom, that was shutdown back in 2012. Until then, let’s celebrate with this PSA video, from Ajit Pai.
On December 6th, 2017 President Trump made the decision to move the US Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. This decision caused discourse online and possibly refueled the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Throughout December 6th and December 7th, 2017; Protests across Palestine and Turkey sprung up. Things got heated in the city of Bethlehem; Jesus’ birthplace, where not just Palestinian Muslims protested, but also a group of Palestinian Christians (pictured above) protested Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Bethlehem also decided to suspend the Christmas celebration that started in Bethlehem on December 2nd with the lighting of the Christmas tree. More protests in Bethlehem followed as well, and Hamas was getting ready for another war with Israel. Reactions to Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel were mixed, with the Left going against the decision and supporting Palestine, the mainstream right supported Trump’s decision and continued to stand with Israel, the far-right criticized Trump’s decision as it was putting “Israel First”, Instead of “America First” like Trump promised. Things started to heat up heading into the 7th and 8th of December, with Hamas firing rockets and Israel, and then Israel responding back by firing missiles in the Gaza Strip and these missile attacks recorded the first number of casualties during this reawakened Israeli-Palestinian scuffle. My take on this, is that President Trump made a decision that he may have not known would reawaken the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and cause protesting and violence in Bethlehem and the Gaza Strip, Partisangirl (or Syriangirl) responded with images and footage of Palestinian Christians burning pictures of Trump and retweeting news articles of Israelis committing terrorist attacks against Israeli and Palestinian Christians. I feel that we need to start waking up to what’s actually going on here, because I believe that Christians are actually God’s people and we need to start establishing self-determination for ourselves, especially for those Christians in the Middle East, such as the Palestinian Christians, Assyrians, and Coptic Egyptians. With this, I will say that Palestine’s reaction to Trump’s decision might have also been bad optics, but most of the violence has been caused by the Islamic majority in Palestine, and not Christians (specifically). But even that, could lead into the United States getting involved in yet another Middle Eastern war, which only has been for money, oil, destabilization, and unintentionally forcing MENA Christians into exodus from their homelands. This same scenario happened when the United States invaded Iraq and accidentally forced Assyrians into exodus, thus endangering the ethnic group and destabilizing Iraq for years to come. Now, I know it sounds like I’m mad at Trump, I’m not, I’m just critical of this decision that Trump’s foreign policy team has made, I believe that Trump still has not been able to drain the swamp that’s in his foreign policy team. Hopefully, Trump and Vice President Pence can peacefully resolve things in the Middle East and avoid another unnecessary war that will only endanger Christians in the Middle East.
As we reach closer and closer to the FCC’s vote on whether or not to keep the 2015 Net Neutrality regulations. Former Megaupload owner; Kim Dotcom is said to be working on a brand new “internet” where he can hopefully bring all of his MEGA products back online, just on a different Dotcom-owned internet than the public internet we have now. If Kim Dotcom’s second internet project succeeds, expect to see an opening in a free market of alternate internets that would be competing with the public internet. The idea of alternate internets has been pushed after the multiple recent cases of Internet censorship in the United States by the US government and Silicon Valley. However, these alternate internets would probably not have as much as users or sites to visit as the public internet. In theory, I would expect these alternate internets to start propping up around the 2020s or 2030s. Concepts of an alternate internet have been discussed before, but none have come into fruition yet. Whatever happens, The next decade is going to be a very interesting one for the internet(s).
This is an indirect response to a NYT editorial about how they interviewed Tony Hovater. In this editorial, I won’t be focusing on that article in specific, but I would rather focus on the Left’s loosely liberal use of the word “Nazi”. Now, according to many sources a “Nazi” could mean anything, but Google describes it as
a member of the National Socialist German Workers Party
Which means in the strictest sense, anyone who was member of the German Nazi Party back in the 1930s. But the Left’s loose use of this term has now made the definition this
Anyone who really disagrees with me
With this open and liberal use of the word “Nazi”. The word “Nazi” is getting cheapened to the point where it could describe people that identify as anti-SJW liberals (or classical liberalism). So that in the future, when everybody’s a Nazi, no one will be.
Just today, the FCC announced that they were on their way to revoke the Net Neutrality bill that was enacted in early 2015 by the Obama administration. Of course, the false narrative that “if Net Neutrality is revoked, ISPs will be able to throttle content” has been spreading again, even though I proved that narrative was false. What’s actually going on here is that Donald Trump’s administration is bringing back to it’s actually free state back in 2014 and earlier, this FCC policy change should hopefully break up the current oligarchy in Silicon Valley, that’s recently been censoring right-wingers, illegally spying on users without a warrant, and trying to monopolize the internet by lobbying domain registrars to censor sites they don’t like. I do have a solution, to fix this social media oligarchy; usually the mainstream conservative/libertarian argument would be “social media companies have the right to refuse service to its users like any other business” and in theory that is true, but these are companies on the Internet that are trying to deprive people of their constitutional first amendment rights, which is why many on the far-right are suggesting a nationalization of social media on the Internet, in order to protect the free speech rights of the people. Right-wing commentator James Allsup does a great job of explaining this
Also, during the recent Twitter purge where many right-wing accounts were deverified and Baked Alaska was even suspended from the site, Richard Spencer also suggested the same thing.
If the Silicon Valley oligarchy gets their way, interesting and cool opinions that derive from the mainstream left-wing narrative may no longer exist. We must fight not to protect Net Neutrality, but to protect the rights of the people from corporate oligarchies.
It’s time for another round of weekly updates from the American Minarchist! Here are some stories from the past week, that may or may not have been overheard.
Radical atheist shoots up 26 people in Sutherland Springs church
On the morning of Sunday, November 5th, 2017. A radical atheist militant named David Patrick Kelley shot 26 churchgoers at Sutherland Springs First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas. Shortly after the attack, leftists politicized the shooting and signalled for more gun control. Even though one of the locals had a gun and was able to shoot the perpetrator. This church shooting alone, became the deadliest church shooting in American history and the the 5th deadliest mass shooting in US history behind Virginia Tech 2007, Orlando 2016, and Las Vegas 2017. This mass shooting shows that Christians not only being slaughtered in their ancestral homelands, but in supposedly safer nations such as the United States as well.
False sexual assault accusations spread against Roy Moore
Just a couple of days ago, the Washington Post started spreading rumors against Republican senatorial candidate Roy Moore, as the Washington Post claimed that Roy Moore “sexually abused a 14-year old in his 40s”. This came with some skepticism, as time went on this seemed more like a left-wing smear campaign against Roy Moore, 4 weeks before the 2017 Alabama election in December of 2017. Roy Moore has went on multiple occasions denying these allegations. Hopefully, these false allegations won’t have any impact during the upcoming 2017 Alabama senatorial election.
It’s been a while and I have a lot of stories to cover from today and this past week. So, here we go with the American Minarchist Weekly Update for November 3rd, 2017!
Bowe Bergdahl deserts 6 Americans dead while searching for him in Afghanistan and will be given no time in prison
So just today, it was revealed that US Army soldier Bowe Bergdahl would not serve any time in prison after deserting 6 American soldiers who were looking for him in Afghanistan, and then letting them die out there. This is a treacherous case of treason against the United States and the United States Army. As he let 6 Americans die in Afghanistan while they could’nt find him, and now he’s not being charged and put into the prison for desertion? Baloney! This is just as bad as the time former Secretary of State let 5 American soldiers die in Benghazi back in 2012.
Houston Astros win 1st ever World Series title
On the night of November 1st, 2017. The Houston Astros defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers in 7 games, with them winning Game 7 5-1 in Los Angeles. Securing the Houston Astros’ first ever World Series title and fulfilling the prophecy foretold by Sports Illustrated back in 2014. Notable veterans such as Brian McCann, Justin Verlander, and Carlos Beltran got their first ring thanks to this World Series victory in Houston. Houston really needed this World Series victory after what happened to the city of Houston with Hurricane Harvey in August of this year. And now, Houston gets to celebrate with their World series trophy in the Bayou.
Islamic terrorist hijacks Home Depot truck and kills at least 8 in New York
On an afternoon during Halloween 2017. An Islamic terrorist hijacked a Home Depot truck and ran over a school bus and other pedestrians and killed at least 8 people in New York City, while shouting “Allah Akbar” during the attack. This attack become the second most deadliest terrorist attack in New York City behind 9/11. Coincidentally, enough this terrorist attack was conducted nearby the World Trade Center memorial site, where the Twin Towers originally stood. The terrorist was identified as Sayfullo Saipov from Uzbekistan where he was brought into the United States via a diversity visa (which has now ended thanks to Trump) in 2010. These attacks seem very similiar to the truck attacks going on in Europe, and many left-wing figures and organizations suggest that we need to “stop Islamophobia” and “carry on exactly as before” to try and stop any ideas of stopping Islamic terrorism in the United States.
President Trump’s Twitter account suspended for 15 minutes on Thursday
Just yesterday evening, a Twitter Government employee temporarily suspended President Trump’s Twitter account @realDonaldTrump for 15 minutes. The employee was on his last day when this happened according to Twitter. During the temporary 15-minute suspension, many liberals celebrated it, thinking it was going to last any longer than 15 minutes. Which proves, that lefties aren’t even hiding it anymore, they celebrate when a person that has opinions they don’t like get censored online. The globalist establishment has been trying to censor people in the right-wing political sphere for decades now, and they have succeeded in some parts. This is a wake up call, to any right-wingers on Twitter who are at risk of having their accounts suspended or temporarily banned from the site.
