The FCC has released more than 300 pages of net neutrality rules, which are designed to prevent Internet providers from slowing down or blocking web traffic.

The FCC released the rules two weeks after voting to approve them. Judge Andrew Napolitano said this goes against a statute which requires the FCC to release the rules before voting so that Congress and the public can comment.

“I see an FCC totally out of control, and I see an FCC proclaiming unto itself the authority that the statute never gave to it and that two federal courts say you don’t have, which is the ability to regulate the Internet,” Napolitano said.

Krauthammer slammed the administration’s “regulatory hunger.”

“If it moves, regulate it,” Krauthammer said.

From the Daily Caller yesterday:

“Americans love the free and open Internet,” Pai, who has led the month-long fight against plan, remarked in his dissenting statement. “We relish our freedom to speak, to post, to rally, to learn, to listen, to watch, and to connect online.”

Internet service providers, their allies and Republicans in Congress with their own proposal have already started combing through the lengthy plan, and will no doubt issue their grievances and subsequent legal challenges based on the dissenting analyses of O’Rielly and Pai, the latter of whom described the legal flaws as “glaring.”

“Unfortunately, the order released today begins a period of uncertainty that will damage broadband investment in the United States,” AT&T Vice President Jim Cicconi said in a statement. ”Ultimately, though, we are confident the issue will be resolved by bipartisan action by Congress or a future FCC, or by the courts.”

House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz is pursing another avenue by investigating whether the White House inappropriately influenced the independent agency’s rules, which include word-for-word polices President Obama called on the FCC to adopt last November.

A DETERMINED BAND OF HACKERS bloggers and systems analysts train their talents and software on clintonemail.com and uncover serious lapses in security, according to data shared with Fox News.

Stirred by the controversy surrounding Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server when she was secretary of state, a determined band of hackers, IT bloggers, and systems analysts have trained their specialized talents and state-of-the-art software on clintonemail.com, the domain under which Clinton established multiple private email accounts, and uncovered serious lapses in security, according to data shared with Fox News.

One prominent figure in the hacker community, bolstered by long experience in the U.S. intelligence community, has undertaken to build a virtual “replica” of Clinton’s server configuration in a cyberlab, and has begun testing it with tools designed to probe security defenses. This individual has shared details of the Clinton system not disclosed publicly but legally obtainable.

Among other things, outside experts have managed to trace the most recent location of Clinton’s server – something she did not specify during her news conference and a subject of much speculation, as the server’s physical placement would provide early clues about whether the data stored on it was adequately secured against compromise by private-sector hackers and foreign intelligence services.

With the aid of software named Maltego, experts had established that the server is up and running, receiving connectivity to the Internet through an Atlanta-based firm called Internap Network Services Corporation.

Former attorney general Alberto Gonzales weighs in on if Hillary Clinton violated federal law:

Sen. Menendez responds to yesterday’s breaking news.

A defiant Sen. Robert Menendez declared, “I am not going anywhere,” Friday night amid reports the Justice Department is preparing to charge the New Jersey Democrat with corruption counts over allegations he used his office to help a Democratic donor.

Menendez told a press conference about four hours after the reports surfaced that he had “always conducted myself appropriately and in accordance with the law.”

He added, “I fight for things I believe important…and for the people of our country. That’s who I am.

“I am not going anywhere.”

Attorney General Eric Holder also declined to comment on the case when asked by Fox News and President Obama ignored shouted questions by reporters as he left Marine One following a trip to South Carolina.

~ Of course these thugs ignored this, they are being called out on their destructive personal politics.Hey Robert? This is exactly what good republicans have been subject to. You’ll find better friends amongst us while you are being set up. ~ JP

From today’s Jewish Journal:

Sen. Robert Menendez hands down got the most enthusiastic reception of any speaker so far at AIPAC’s annual conference.

I’d say you could barely hear the New Jersey Democrat on Monday night but for the whoops and shouts, except that Menendez has a preacher’s style and his rich tenor and rolling cadences rode the cheering like a rodeo cowboy. He was in control, and everything he said was crystal clear.

So what happened?

Well, for one thing Menendez is the Democrat who puts the “bi” back in partisanship, a one-man bulwark against the notion that hewing to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s Iran-skeptic precepts makes you a Republican.

His tough talk was just the tonic for a lobby battled by perceptions that it is increasingly identified with the GOP.

“I can tell you one thing,” he said. “As long as I have an ounce of fight left in me, as long as I have a vote and a say and a chance to protect the interest of Israel, the region and the national security interests of the United States — Iran will never have a pathway to a weapon. It will never threaten Israel or its neighbors, and it will never be in a position to start a nuclear arms race in the Middle East. Not on my watch!”

“And, when it comes to defending the U.S.-Israel relationship, I am not intimidated by anyone — not Israel’s political enemies, and not by my political friends when I believe they’re wrong,” he said.

Then he took on Rice.

I take issue with those who say the prime minister’s visit to the United States is ‘destructive to U.S.-Israel relations.’

“And tomorrow I will be proud when I escort Prime Minister Netanyahu to the House chamber to give his speech! To show him the respect he deserves from every American who cares about our relationship with the only true democracy in the Middle East.”

The crowd went wild.

Legendary TV talk show host Byron Allen is taking on Al Sharpton, President Obama, and the most powerful media corporations in the world in a battle to spotlight the crisis at the heart of American race relations. It’s a daunting mission. But for some reason he doesn’t sound scared.

Allen told The Daily Caller that top media interests are actively freezing out and in some cases destroying black-owned media companies — and they’re paying Reverend-turned-MSNBC host Al Sharpton to give them racial cover to do it.

As for Washington politicians like Obama? According to Allen, they’re bought out by the very same interests, and they’re playing a part.

Al Sharpton Hit With $20 Billion Lawsuit, Along With Comcast And Time Warner

“A lawsuit against Comcast, Time Warner Cable Inc., Rev. Al Sharpton and the NAACP alleges that the media companies discriminated against black-owned businesses and paid activists like Sharpton to “whitewash” its practices. The complaint alleges that Comcast gave large donations to Sharpton, the NAACP and other civil rights groups to make it appear that the cable company was promoting diversity, even while it was failing to follow through on a promise to do so.

“Comcast has engaged in, and is engaging in, pernicious, intentional racial discrimination in contracting,” it reads. Whether or not it gets anywhere is another question. Anyone can file a lawsuit alleging anything and claiming any amount of money.”

“It looks like we’ve been lied to, or at least misled,” said Rep. John Mica, R-Fla. at a congressional hearing Thursday evening,

32,000 Lerner emails found on backup tapes:

Inspector general investigating criminal activity within IRS. Well DOH!

IRS Deputy Inspector General Timothy Camus, who testified alongside Inspector General J. Russell George, said his organization was investigating possible criminal activity. He did not elaborate, other than to suggest a key factor is whether documents were intentionally withheld.

The emails were to and from Lois Lerner, who used to head the IRS division that processes applications for tax-exempt status. Last June, the IRS told Congress it had lost an unknown number of Lerner’s email when her computer hard drive crashed in 2011.

“We have been patient. We have asked, we have issued subpoenas, we have held hearings,” said Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, chairman of the Oversight Committee. “It’s just shocking me that you start, two weeks later you’re able to find the emails.”

“We recovered quite a number of emails, but until we compare those to what’s already been produced we don’t know if they’re new emails,” Camus told the House Oversight Committee.

Neither Camus nor George would describe the contents of any of the emails at Thursday’s hearing.

Last year, the House voted mostly along party lines to hold her in contempt of Congress for refusing to answer questions at the hearings.

SCOTUS case that could gut Obamacare

Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell reiterated to Congress Thursday that the Obama administration does not have a Plan B if the Supreme Court strikes down a key part of the Affordable Care Act — despite a Republican congressman claiming he heard a contingency plan is being drafted.

Rep. Joseph Pitts, R-Pa., who chairs a House health subcommittee, claimed he has been told the Obama administration is preparing a 100-page contingency plan in case it loses the high court challenge. The Supreme Court next week is hearing a case over whether subsidies at the heart of the law can be distributed through the federal health care exchange.

“So, if the court strikes it down, the administration is just going to say, ‘we surrender?’” Pitts asked.

Burwell answered, “An administrative remedy is something we don’t believe we have.”

On March 4, the Supreme Court will be asked to decide whether the IRS illegally extended subsidies to millions of Americans in order to underwrite the cost of their health insurance policies under the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare.

The language of the law says the subsidies will be awarded in states that set up their own exchanges, but more than three dozen states opted not to do that. Despite that fact, the IRS extended subsidies into those states.

Some ACA critics fear the Supreme Court may hesitate to block the current subsidies because of a lack of confidence in the legislative branch in general.

Should the Supreme Court rule in King v. Burwell—a case challenging the Obama Administration’s implementation of the premium tax credit provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA)—that the statute restricts the payment of premium tax credits only to individuals obtaining coverage “through an Exchange established by [a] State,” its ruling would preclude the Treasury paying the tax credits to those obtaining coverage through the federally run exchange—or what the Obama Administration calls the Federally Facilitated Marketplace (FFM)—currently serving 34 states King v. Burwell
