Today’s vote by a bitterly divided FCC that the Internet should be regulated as a public utility is the culmination of a decade-long battle by the Left. Using money from George Soros and liberal foundations that totaled at least $196 million radical activists finally succeeded in ramming through “net neutrality,” or the idea that all data should be transmitted equally over the Internet. The final push involved unprecedented political pressure exerted by the Obama White House on FCC chairman Tom Wheeler, head of an ostensibly independent regulatory body.

THIS WEEK’S FEATURED COLUMN
Phyllis Schlafly  2/24

"It hit a nerve," Rudy Giuliani observed about his widely reported insight that President Obama does not love America. Amid the uproar from the liberal media that anyone would dare question a liberal's patriotism, the former mayor of New York City is not backing away from his candid comment, telling the New York Times that "I said exactly what I wanted to say. I conveyed exactly the message that I wanted to convey."

Giuliani's on-target comments hit the same nerve that has produced an uproar over the new Advanced Placement U.S. History Framework, which is teaching 500,000 of our brightest college-bound high school seniors to be ashamed instead of proud of our country. A half-dozen states have introduced legislation demanding changes in the APUSH Framework, which minimizes the American Revolution, the Founding Fathers and the exceptional greatness of our country, in order to give disproportionate emphasis to the grievances of minorities.

The former mayor observed that Obama criticizes our country "much more often than other American presidents," both Republican and Democrat. He added that Obama "was educated by people who were critics of the U.S. And he has not been able to overcome those influences."

"From the time he was 9 years old, he was influenced by Frank Marshall Davis, who was a communist," Giuliani pointed out. As a young "community organizer," Obama was influenced by the radical socialist Saul Alinsky, who was also the subject of Hillary Rodham's 92-page senior thesis at Wellesley College.

Giuliani continued: "He spent 17 years in the church of Jeremiah Wright, and this is the guy who said 'God damn America, not God bless America.'"  Giuliani has, in fact, been making many comments like these, without much media attention. But this time the comment was made in the presence of a leading presidential candidate, Scott Walker, who refused to criticize Giuliani's remark despite pressure to do so.

"The mayor can speak for himself," Walker told a reporter who demanded to know if Walker agrees with the mayor that Obama does not love America. "You should ask the president what he thinks about America."
Another prospective presidential candidate, Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, reportedly telephoned Giuliani to congratulate him for his comments. Publicly, Jindal said, "The gist of what Mayor Giuliani said ... is true," adding, "If you are looking for someone to condemn the mayor, look elsewhere."

Jindal also stood by his own remarks that criticized "non-assimilation" by immigrants to our country. He described as "dangerous" the "people who want to come to our country but not adopt our values," including our English language, adding that "it is absolutely correct to insist on assimilation" by immigrants to America.

Responses by other Republican presidential candidates to Giuliani's insight have been less impressive. Jeb Bush and Rand Paul were quick to run from Giuliani's remarks by insisting they would not question Obama's "motives," while Marco Rubio and Lindsey Graham both said they have "no doubt" that President Obama loves America. And 2012 presidential nominee Mitt Romney's chief foreign policy adviser, Dan Senor, told CNBC that it is "insane" to question "whether or not Barack Obama loves America."

While running for president in 2008, Obama criticized Americans in rural Pennsylvania and in small towns in the Midwest by saying that "they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations." That offensive comment was not long after Michelle Obama declared, "Let me tell you something. For the first time in my adult lifetime, I'm proud of my country."

Obama refers to our nation as "this" country, as though it is some other country and not "our" country, as when he said, "There's a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped disproportionately by the police, and that's a fact." Obama once told a European audience that "there have been times where America has shown arrogance."

When Obama has expressed admiration for our country, it is often in a backhanded manner. "I realize that America's critics will be quick to point out that at times we too have failed to live up to our ideals; that America has plenty of problems within its own borders. This is true," Obama declared to the United Nations General Assembly last year.
By contrast, Mayor Giuliani said, "with all our flaws, we're the most exceptional country in the world. I'm looking for a presidential candidate who can express that, do that and carry it out."

"I want a president who is not embarrassed to say America is the strongest power on earth," the mayor continued. "And I want our enemies to be afraid of our president."


“Whenever I hear someone announce that “All religions are a path to God!” I wonder how it would work if you applied such “tolerance” to, say, medicine or science. “All medicines are a path to health! You take antibiotics, I cut the head off a chicken and dance under the full moon, really what’s the difference as long as we both believe it will make us well?” Or “All science is a path to progress! You invent an iPhone, I invent a weaponized disease, it’s all science, man, it’s all great!”

FROM OTHER COLUMNS
“Democrats have for years been questioning the decency of Republicans as human beings. During the Obamacare rollout, President Obama accused Republicans of wanting to deprive people of healthcare; he openly accused President George W. Bush of being ‘unpatriotic’ for raising the national debt. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that Republicans are ‘indifferent’ to hungry and poor children. Anyone who opposes any aspect of President Obama’s agenda has been deemed a racist. The point here is not the media’s double standard, which is egregious but unchangeable. The point is that this perception of Republicans has pervaded the public arena. Republicans' fundamental burden is not explaining to the American people that Democrats are great people, but wrong on policy. Their great burden is overcoming the generalized perception that they are money-grubbing Snidely Whiplashes bent on strapping widows and orphans to the train tracks. You cannot overcome that perception by ardently pleading that the very folks who call you racist, sexist, homophobic bigots are well-intentioned but incompetent.”

LEFTIST WATCH
In September 2013, Jeri Wright, daughter of Reverend “God Damn America” Wright, and 12 other Democrats were charged with embezzling $16 million in Federal health grants that should have gone to AIDS charities and other programs for the poor and needy. More than one of the defendants had direct ties to President Barack Obama. In March 2014 Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s daughter Jeri was found guilty on eleven counts that included money laundering and lying to federal agents. This week US District Judge Sue E. Myerscough sent Jeri Wright to prison.

ARTICLES
By the time conservative activists leave the nation’s capital this weekend after their largest annual get-together, they should be better equipped for the 2016 campaign trail. They also may be a little closer to uniting behind a candidate for president who can win by addressing the concerns of everyday Americans. That, at least, is the goal of Matt Schlapp, who heads the team putting on the Conservative Political Action Conference, better known as CPAC. “We have to be able to reach [regular Americans] where they are and explain to them why conservative policies matter,” Schlapp says in an interview with
