FCC doubles down on dead-wrong definition of how internet works

Posted by DanielS on Sunday, 26 November 2017 01:33.

Tech Crunch, “FCC doubles down on its dead-wrong definition of how the internet works”, 25 Nov 2017:

In May, when the FCC released an early draft of its plan to undo 2015’s strong net neutrality rules, I pointed out that its case rests almost entirely on a deeply incorrect definition of how the internet works. There can be no mistake now that this misrepresentation is deliberate; the agency has reiterated it in even stronger terms in the final draft of the proposal.

I’m not going to go into great detail on it (my earlier post spells it out) but the basic problem is this: broadband has to be defined as either an information service or telecommunications service. The first is “the offering of a capability for generating, acquiring, storing, transforming, processing, retrieving, utilizing, or making available information,” while the second is “the transmission, between or among points specified by the user, of information of the user’s choosing, without change in the form or content of the information as sent and received.”

It’s important because the two things are regulated very differently — the FCC has much greater power over telecommunications services, under the “Title II” authority that internet service providers are so afraid of.

While it’s certainly true that ISPs do in some ways store and generate data on behalf of the user, usually as part of managing their networks, it’s equally certain that their primary purpose is to transmit data between the user and points of his or her choosing. Consequently, broadband should be classified as a telecommunications service.

But don’t take my word for it. The FCC made the argument for me in its 2015 order, citing many sources of its own in support of this fact. This excellent primer produced by the EFF and nearly 200 experts explains basically from first principles how the internet works and why it should be defined as telecommunications. There are big names on the list, but it seems clear that even the garden variety experts understand this much more clearly than the FCC does (or pretends to).

The FCC dismisses these scholars and founding technologists of the internet in a footnote, describing itself as “unpersuaded” that the internet works the way they insist it does. Meanwhile, the proposal repeatedly and unquestioningly cites the comments of ISPs claiming that something as simple as caching data magically exempts them from being telecommunication services:


Just trust them — after all, it’s not like they have a horse in this race.

The FCC’s case against net neutrality rests on a deliberate misrepresentation of how the internet works”, Tech Crunch 23 May 2017

The resulting definition of broadband as enabling users to generate, store, transform, and process their data is absurd. It is, as the Internet Engineers comment points out, like saying your phone is a pizzeria because you can use it to order a pizza. It is like saying that because you build a road, you are also building all the businesses along that road.

It is edge providers like Wikipedia, Dropbox, and even simple websites like TechCrunch that provide the services users request; it is ISPs that carry that data, with no change in form, between users and those edge providers. The FCC rejects this fundamental idea and substitutes a convenient fiction that upholds its current ambition to reclassify broadband. There is a semblance of plausibility to all this, but only because of precedents set in times when the internet looked very different.

This may be their downfall. Because the entire proposal is predicated on this spurious and outdated definition, to remove it causes the rest to crumble. Without reclassification there is no rollback of net neutrality. There is hope here: the FCC’s argument (which is to say, the broadband industry’s argument) already failed in court and may do so again. Here’s hoping. - Devin Coldewey

You Are Entering The Twilight Zone of The Alt-Right’s Blackpool Carnival Duck Shooting Gallery

Posted by DanielS on Monday, 26 June 2017 04:01.

You are entering the Twilight Zone of a Blackpool Carnival.

You realize that part of its nightmare is that you could go on indefinitely with this metaphor. There is too much to say -

Its right-wing organizers, their Jewish cohorts behind the scenes and the workers who attend want to maintain the clichés and stereotypes that they have placed as wooden-ducks on the shooting gallery conveyor belts. The Right and Jewish interests want the public to fire at these carefully crafted targets in ostensible justification of their position, which at the same time directs heat away from them and misdirects their potential antagonists. The workers want to maintain these received clichés and stereotypes also because these targets have been carefully crafted to flatter their self esteem and make them feel like sophisticated people for picking them off…

  ...“Diversity,” Blam!  ... “Multiculturalism,” Blam!  ...“The Left,” Blam!  ...“Social Justice Warriors,” Blam!  ...“Equality,” Blam!

The workers further value the cliche and stereotype duck targets as they are rewarded for shooting at them according to kind and gradient of difficulty. Starting with easier targets, they may win a pink clad Lauren Southern Doll for a girlfriend and applause instigated for that from the right wing barkers. Moving on in difficulty, perhaps a Carnival Master Barker Richard Spencer bobble-head; better still, a large stuffed animal with Carnival Patron William Regnery‘s name emblazoned upon it; perhaps a book from his catalogue or a subscription to National Review. The prizes get better with each passing duck ....here they come…..

..“Racist” Blam! You fire, “A code world for anti-White!” You’re down with the White GenNOcide Project. And now Regnery and Spencer take note, you are in line to try for bigger rewards, perhaps celebrity or even an alt-right podcast!

A podcast especially if you hit the next duck….

“Anti-Semite” Blam! You fire, “Jews are behind many conspiracies, but seem pretty White to me and some of my best friends are Jews; fine paleocons who promote Judeo-Christianity.” 

Well done! You can be a regular part of the carnival operation now. A column and regular speaking engagements at conferences and in podcasts with fellow alt-righters is in order having hit that duck. (((The White GeNocide Project))) loves you.

...“Nazi” Blam! You fire, “We were on the wrong side in WWII.” Spencer and Regnery quietly take you aside to a private room, noting your talent as a maverick and Germanophile, with the nerve to take on hard targets, they will tell you, “look, we understand, but you have to cool it for now, most people won’t understand.” Regnery introduces you to his Jewish friends, Paul Gottriend and Gilad Atzmon, who are also sympathetic to Germany and it’s over-zealous persecution. Where not so easily placated by their paleoconservative and liberal alternative respectively, they speed up the ducks and make the targets harder ....next ...

....“Holocaust,” Blam! You answer, “Never happened.” Special note is taken of your potential for stellar initiative. Your talent observed such that you may be taken upstairs and introduced to Horus the Avenger and Dr. Duke; who also tell you, “we understand, but cool it, most others just won’t understand”; nevertheless their ilk can show you how to be a true right wing sociopath, how to run your own franchise dealership, shooting gallery, whatever - you are the Schmittian exception now; you might even sell-out your people in ultimate complicitness with the very Jews that you decry daily.

- They point to TRS, champion dealership now. See?  Even if you are Jewish, no problem, you can go crypto  ...at Alt-Right too. You can also be a semi-open or fully open Jew at Alternative Right, at Stark Radio, throughout the Alt Lite*. Be a celebrity in the Alt Right!


Now, this metaphor of the Blackpool duck shooting gallery may not be appreciated in the sense that it is the kind of metaphor that you’d hear from creepy Red Leftists mocking ordinary people having good-natured, even if low-brow fun.

But the point of going through this metaphor is to illustrate that there is both pressure and reinforcement from a large cultural milieu to be faithful in representation of most of the clichéd and stereotyped ducks offered up as opposition by the alt-right (which is purported guardian of White interests) and encouraged, in fact, usually coined as such by the YKW.

There’s no “there there” to Russian investigation only where the Alt-Right doesn’t want there to be.

Posted by DanielS on Wednesday, 14 June 2017 23:16.

Whereas alt-right-wingers talk about there being ‘no there there’ to the Russian investigation, it is evident rather that the Trump administration and its functionaries were trying to conceal “thereness” - from Michael Flynn’s refusal to comply with a Senate subpoena to list his contacts with Russian officials, to Jeff Sessions unofficial meetings with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, to Jared Kushner’s wish expressed to the same Kislyak to set up a back channel communications system with the Kremlin- using clandestine Russian means and equipment! - probably the most damning connection so far to refute the alt-right-wing spin to extricate Russian-Jewish-Trump/U.S. and right wing interests from one another.

Washington Post, 30 May: Kushner and the seemingly omnipresent Sergey Kislyak — Moscow’s ambassador to the United States — had talked about setting up a secret back-channel communication system with the Kremlin. According to U.S. officials briefed on intelligence reports, Kushner and Kislyak discussed using Russian diplomatic facilities to shield their conversations from our own country’s intelligence apparatus. The move was unusual to say the least — and it happened several weeks before Trump was inaugurated, so Kushner was acting as a private citizen.

The meeting was picked up by U.S. intelligence and is said to have occurred between Dec. 1 and 2 at Trump Tower. Another controversial figure was also there — Michael Flynn, who was later ousted as Trump’s national security adviser and is refusing to comply with a Senate subpoena demanding a list of his contacts with Russian officials between June 16, 2015, and Jan. 20, 2017.


This is the denial-slop being served-up by the Alt-Right:

Fash the Nation is back, returning to its vomit with Mike Enoch and sheer Trump advocacy on June 11th. After all this Jewishness and all their purported savvy in that regard, Jazzhands McFeels and Halberstrom do nothing but kiss the kosher-approved ass of Trump; while denying any significance to Russian-Jewish-Trump connections - “a nothing burger” - Fash the Nation Week 74: Leaky Comeys

Meanwhile, at Richard Spencer’s

Alt-Right, (7 June 2017), Vincent Law spun their paleocon angle with the following: “Reality Winner’s Russia Leaks Will End Up Destroying The Left.  They chose the wrong hill to die on.”

Here is the reality:

Washington Post, “Special counsel is investigating Trump for possible obstruction of justice, officials say”, 14 June:

The special counsel overseeing the investigation into Russia’s role in the 2016 election is interviewing senior intelligence officials as part of a widening probe that now includes an examination of whether President Trump attempted to obstruct justice, officials said.

The move by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III to investigate Trump’s conduct marks a major turning point in the nearly year-old FBI investigation, which until recently focused on Russian meddling during the presidential campaign and on whether there was any coordination between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. Investigators have also been looking for any evidence of possible financial crimes among Trump associates, officials said.

[Here’s what we know so far about Team Trump’s ties to Russian interests]

Trump had received private assurances from then-FBI Director James B. Comey starting in January that he was not personally under investigation. Officials say that changed shortly after Comey’s firing.
