FCC to end net neutrality,DC protests coming Dec 7 at Verizon stores

FCC Chairman Agit Pai has announced plans to revoke net neutrality protections as early as December this year. Once this takes place, ISP's will be able to block popular websites unless people pay for "social upgrades," "media upgrades," "entertainment upgrades," etc. With Cable TV subscriptions plummeting, Big Cable and Big Telcos are keen to apply that business model to the Internet. As usual, Tor will defeat their blocking.

Protests at Verizon stores will begin on Dec 7, including two stores here in DC

Just Say No to Scott Mugno as OSHA Director

Just Say No to Scott Mugno as OSHA Director-Fired Federal OSHA Whistleblower Investigator  Speaks Out

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Just Say No to Scott Mugno as OSHA Director

11/21/17

It’s traditional to give a President the discretion to appoint whomever she/he wants as federal administrator. However, there’s a reason Congress has a say in this process, and it should now just say no to President Trump’s nomination of Scott Mugno to be the new Director of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

FedEx has a long record of dangerous health and safety practices leading to a high number of FedEx truck wrecks that were engineered by Tump's new appointee to head OSHA Scott Mugno.

NPI exiled to barn, shut down early after losing Ronald Reagan building

On Nov 19, 2016, Richard Spencer's "National Policy Institue" (NPI) met in the Ronald Reagan building in DC, throwing Nazi salutes while maybe 1,000 protesters beseiged the building. One year later, on Nov 19, 2017 they had to meet in a barn after the Ronald Reagan building dumped them, and it appears far fewer attended. Recent bounced checks by Richard Spencer probably made hotels unavailable.

Update Nov 20,2017:The barn that hosted NPI has been identified as Rocklands Farm in Poolesville, MD. It appears to be a rustic host site for weddings etc and was rented under false pretences. NPI was ordered to leave as soon as the owners realized they had Nazis on their property

NPI has been reduced to a few Nazis meeting in a barn.
