Anti-Christian, Anti-Conservative, Pro-Choice terrorist who shot FRC offices sentenced today in court

floyd-corkinsThe man convicted of shooting an unarmed security guard and building manager at the Family Research Council on August 15, 2012, saying he wanted to kill “conservative right-wing Christians,” was sentenced to 25 years in prison today, was sentenced Thursday to 25 years in prison.

Floyd Lee Corkins II had plotted to kill “as many people as possible” at conservative organizations he viewed as anti-gay before he was stopped by the former guard, Leonardo Johnson.

Corkins entered the lobby armed with a loaded semi-automatic pistol, 100 rounds of ammunition, and 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches. He started firing at FRC’s building manager Leo Johnson who heroically tackled the shooter after a gunshot shattered his arm.

Today Chief Judge Richard Roberts of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia sentenced Floyd Lee Corkins II, the perpetrator of a terrorist act at the Family Research Council (FRC) on August 15, 2012. Judge Roberts sentenced Corkins to 25 years in prison after he pleaded guilty in February to three felony counts that included the charge of committing an act of terrorism while armed.

“The carnage you wanted did not happen only because an ordinary man showing extraordinary courage stopped you,” Roberts said before announcing Corkins’s prison term. “Killing human beings is not political activism. It is criminal behavior.”

In arguing for a stiffer sentence of 45 years, federal prosecutors Thursday equated Corkins with the man behind Monday’s shooting rampage at the Washington Navy Yard that left 12 people dead.

“Mr. Corkins was this close to accomplishing that,” said Assistant U.S. Attorney T. Patrick Martin. “He was no less determined than the Navy Yard gunman. He was no less prepared.”

Corkins, 29, was easily able to purchase a semiautomatic pistol from a Virginia gun shop the week before the August 2012 shooting even though he was suffering from a chronic mental illness. Defense attorney David Bos recommended a sentence of 111 / 2 years and said the case was about “too easy access to firearms.”

Police found a hand-written list in Corkins’s front pants pocket with the names of three other socially conservative organizations. Had he succeeded with the shooting, Corkins told FBI agents he planned to go directly to the second organization on his list. Read More

Mr. Leo Johnson, who ultimately stopped Mr. Corkins’ attack, delivered a statement before the court, as did FRC President Tony Perkins. Mr. Perkins delivered his statement on behalf of the FRC staff.

Mr. Leo Johnson made the following comments during the sentencing:

Leo Johnson FRC 37479EEF-E101-CCF7-F27D84783C0327EF

“The actions of Floyd Lee Corkins have greatly impacted my life. I often experience feelings of anger and frustration when I think about all of the things that I have had, and continue, to endure both physically and psychologically as a result of this crime. I have had to endure surgery, with at least two more scheduled; painful, life-threatening blood clots which developed in my right lung; grueling physical therapy sessions; multiple medications and numerous doctors appointments as a result of this crime. My family was put under tremendous stress as well, as they tried to cope with the shock of what happened and the fear of not knowing whether I was even alive, let alone going to be OK.”

Mr. Perkins made the following comments during the sentencing:

“The attack at our headquarters did not just harm Leo. As the Court knows, Mr. Corkins’ stated intention was to kill as many FRC staff as possible to send a political message, a chilling, political message. But for Leo’s heroic conduct and the protective hand of the Lord, this crime might have ended like the tragic shooting that occurred earlier this week here in D.C.”

“As the Court knows, Mr. Corkins’ stated intention was to kill as many FRC staff as possible to send a political message. But for Leo’s heroic conduct, and the protective hand of the Lord, this crime might have ended as one of the worst acts of domestic terrorism the District of Columbia has ever seen. Today we are not seeking vengeance, but we do seek justice…

Many on our staff and in their families have suffered ongoing emotional and psychological harm and have changed their daily lives in response to the attack. Every day, our staff has to deal with the fact that each of us was a potential victim. The facts show that he planned his attack in great detail and hoped for massive casualties…. prosecutors revealed that Mr. Corkins had obtained our building location from the Southern Poverty Law Center’s website.

He was clearly inspired by the [SPLC]’s labeling of FRC as a “hate group” based on our belief that marriage can only take place between one man and one woman… His goal and that of the SPLC is to silence those with whom they disagree. In a civil society, shutting down debate is not how reasonable people and organizations operate. Intimidating and bullying others shreds the “ordered liberty” of which our Founders wrote and for which they advocated, and places all of us in jeopardy of losing our sacred rights as militant extremists claim the public square exclusively for themselves.”

Pro-life man violently attacks pro-lifer in Rockford ILL

Posted in pro-choice, Pro-choice law breakers, pro-choice violence, Pro-Life, Violence against pro-lifer with tags , , on August 20, 2012 by saynsumthn

In yet another incident of the increasing violence from liberal activists, an angry abortion supporting man spit at and threw a can of soda at a pro-life woman quietly praying the Rosary. He then came charging out of his car and ripped a pro-life sign out of her hands.

After the abortion supporter threw the pro-life sign, he charged a pro-life man who began filming the incident and struck him in the chest and spit on him as well.

The violent and raving abortion supporter then drove off leaving a trail of obscenities behind him.

This incident comes on the heels of another:

Man attacks 77 your old pro-lifer, destroys her graphic abortion sign

77 year old Donna Holman was holding a picture of an aborted baby near the abortion clinic, when a 25 year old man grabbed her sign and ran. She ran after him yelling “Thief! Thief!” He proceeded to destroy her sign when her husband came to her aid and subdued him. Police are called.

All comes on the heels of a Gunman who entered the Pro-Life Family Research Council attempting to shoot everyone in the building.

Media silence on shooting at FRC consistent with the media silence on violence against pro-lifers

Posted in Hate Crimes, homosexuality, pro-choice violence, Pro-Life with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 16, 2012 by saynsumthn

Newsbusters is reporting that ABC was the only broadcast network that offered a full story on the FRC office shooting on Wednesday night. They led with the story and gave it two and a half minutes. None of the network newscasts reported the breaking detail that shooter Floyd Corkins volunteered for six months at the D.C. Center for the LGBT Community, adding depth to his political motivation.

On NBC Nightly News, Brian Williams gave the story just 17 seconds: “In Washington today, police say a man with a gun walked into the offices of the conservative lobbying group the Family Research Council, and opened fire. He never made it past the lobby. He shot a security guard in the arm before the guard was able to subdue him.”

On CBS Evening News, substitute anchor Bob Schieffer offered 20 seconds: “A gunman opened fire today at the Washington headquarters of the Family Research Council, a conservative Christian lobbying group. The man shot a security guard in the arm before that guard and others tackled him, and he was arrested. Police say that the suspect made negative comment about the council’s work just before the shooting.”

Does anyone believe that under the same circumstances — hostile ideological shooter captured after security guard only shot in the arm — a conservative nut attacking a gay activist group or abortion advocacy group would draw just 20 seconds? (For one example, a quick Nexis search reminds me CBS This Morning offered a full story from Wichita on August 20, 1993, after late-term abortionist Dr. George Tiller was shot in both arms.)

On both NBC and CBS, the FRC brief was followed by a full story promoting President Obama’s new deferral program for illegal alien “Dream Act” students. NBC gave that two minutes, CBS two minutes and fifty seconds.

ABC’s World News led off with the tease: “Tonight on World News: armed and dangerous. A gunman opens fire at the office of a powerful conservative group. He was stopped by a heroic security guard in the nick of time. Was it domestic terrorism?”

Personhood Leaders Suffer Violent Attacks from Pro-Abortion Terrorists Following ‘Newsweek’ Feature

DENVER, July 2, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ — On the heels of the release of an article profiling Personhood USA leaders Keith and Jennifer Mason, featured in Newsweek magazine and online at The Daily Beast, the Mason’s home residence was violently vandalized by pro-abortion activists. A few days after the attack, dedicated pro-life volunteer Everett Stadig was assaulted while petitioning for Colorado’s personhood initiative and suffered several injuries, including a broken hip which required surgery.

The Newsweek article profiled the Masons and their work to champion the personhood rights of every human being. The Daily Beast’s notoriously liberal audience took exception to the pro-life beliefs of the Masons, resulting in several physical threats posted in the comments beneath the article. After viewing these threats, one reader tracked down the Mason’s home address and posted it in the comment section.

In the middle of the night, a large rock was heaved through the double-paned glass of their front door, scattering glass throughout their living room and across the front porch, covering their children’s toys and items for the new baby. The pro-abortion criminals also spray painted coat hangers and vulgarity in large letters on the front and sides of their house.

The violence didn’t end there. The same week, Stadig was criminally assaulted, resulting in multiple injuries and hospitalization.

Have you ever noticed how the media fails to repeat these stories of pro-choicers using guns to intimidate and even murder pro-lifers?????

Abortionist Gary Boyle points hand gun at prayi…, posted with vodpod

Doctor charged with pointing handgun at abortion protesters
By George Jackson

A doctor was charged with a felony in South Carolina on Saturday.

Charleston Police said Dr. Gary Boyle, 62 of Blountville, pointed a gun at three abortion protesters near the back entrance of the Charleston’s Women’s Medical Center.
According to the police report, Boyle works at the center. He also practices medicine at the Bristol Regional Women’s Center in Tennessee.

Both offices are the focus of a 40-day protest by anti-abortion activists.

BS ABORTION 1

In 2009- a pro-choice man actually shot a and murdered pro-lifer – DID YOU HEAR this repeated on the nightly news?

In September of 2009, a pro-life activist was gunned down on a public sidewalk by a violent pro-choicer who hated his message. James Pouillon was standing in front of a Michigan High School, where he had stood peacefully many times before, carrying a pro-life sign. The Shiawassee County Prosecutor’s office has charged pro-choicer, Harlan J. Drake, 33, of Owosso with two counts of first-degree, premeditated murder.

Pouillon’s sign depicted a picture of a baby and simply said “LIFE” and for this he was brutally killed.

babylife1

Police reported that Drake was ticked off at Pouillon’s pro-life message, so he hunted him down in a killing spree, drove up next to the man who had 2 leg braces and carried an oxygen tank, and opened fire. This is the pro-choice response to a non-violent protest, this is their way of bringing “peace” and “Common ground” to the abortion issue. This type of brutal murder , firing several bullets into the body of a loving father and a husband , is the violent pro-choice response to the simple pro-life message: “LIFE“.

Activist Killed

Perhaps the years of pro-choice rhetoric has finally caught up with them. The media is not without fault here as well. Even as I read an AP story, rather than pointing back to the thousands of incidents of angry pro-choice violence against pro-lifers, unborn children, abortion patients, etc. they are using the death of this pro-life martyr, to once again bring up the shooting of an abortion doctor from Wichita. Never in the history of this issue, has the media ever repeated the litany of deaths of the women at the hands of abortion doctors.

Here is proof that the media is biased against pro-lifers especially in how they handle the killings:

Rachel Maddow calls shooting of Late Term abortionist George Tiller ” Domestic Terrorism”

Here she tries to state that this killing of a pro-life activist is an isolated incident and is not the general view of pro-choicers. She fails to list one other incident of pro-choice “TERRORISM” in this report. If you want a list of pro-choice terrorism which Maddow fails to list go here:
This website has been up for years and the media again and again fails to show the truth about PRO-CHOICE TERRORISM and PRO-CHOICE VIOLENCE !

“Let those that have sinned cast bullets towards you idiots as well.”

“Since you and your followers promote the killing of doctors who carry out abortions, I think it’s
time for those of us who respect a woman’s right to control her own reproduction to promote
a little terrorism of our own. So watch out, keep looking over your shoulders, who knows
who may be behind you?”

“I eagerly await the day that I see your blood on someone’s hands.”

Here is a great example as osted by NEWS BUSTERS: CBS Skips Killing of Pro-Life Activist; ABC Sees ‘Flip Side’ to Killing of Abortionist Tiller

2009-09-11-ABC-Gibson

If you want to learn the truth the media will not repeat – Here a just a few more Samples :

Deaths such as Pamela Colson, who bled to death as she left a Pensacola abortion clinic, where she was a patient. The clinic botched her abortion so bad and then sent her on the way- to die on her car as she drove home. You have heard a lot about Pensacola and an abortionist murders, but the media says nothing about Colson’s abortion death ! Why? Because the media is Pro-abortion and they will go to large extents to hide the brutal truth of abortion from the public.

The media also continues to hide the fact that pro-life people are targeted daily for abuse, violence, and now murder. The media, rather than doing their homework and being “un-biased” on this issue- takes all their talking points from the National Abortion Federation and Planned Parenthood – both organizations who make millions of dollars from abortion.

Rather than mention the death of Late-Term abortionist Tiller – they could detail the violent attack in New Jersey of pro-lifer George Krail who was run over by pro-choicers entering the South Jersey Women’s Center run by abortionist: George Danioff. The media could report that when pro-lifer George Krail was laying in pain on the sidewalk after the attack, and no one inside this “Medical Abortion Office” rendered him any assistance according to Krail’s Wife, Tina. It was pro-choicers who violently used their car to break George’s right leg in four places , four of George’s ribs and inflicted several other injuries to his ankle. Why doesn’t the media repeat this violent pro-choice story?

The media could also report the death of abortion patient, Laura Smith who died as a result of her abortion at the Women’s Health Center, in Hyannis, MA. where abortionist Rapin Osathanondh did the botched procedure. During the abortion, Laura’s heart, pulse and blood pressure were not monitored, and there was no oxygen source in the room. The media could report how abortionist Osathanondh, and an office worker who had no training in resuscitative measures, and were only ones with Laura after the abortion. They could report how after the abortion, Osathanondh called Smith’s name to wake her, and when he received no response, he failed to timely initiate a call to 911, according to Laura’s mom, Eileen. Smith was pronounced dead by the time she arrived at Cape Cod Hospital. Eileen reported that Osathanondh lied repeatedly to its staff about the incident, telling them he gave Smith oxygen when he didn’t, monitored her pulse when he didn’t, claimed he and his assistant were certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support when they weren’t, and said he hadn’t left the room from the time he began CPR until the ambulance arrived.

They could report how Carolina Gutierrez, bought the lie that abortion is a safe, legal procedure. It took her six weeks to die from an infection so bad after her abortion that she developed gangrene.

Yes, these are the faces of PRO-CHOICE AMERICA ! And this is but a drop in the bucket. There are thousands of such stories ranging from brutal attacks of pro-choice boyfriends who kill their pro-life girlfriends because they refuse to have abortions, to pro-choice activists who attack pro-lifers, vandalize their property, and threaten them constantly, to abortion doctors who have sexually assaulted their abortion patients ( google: Dr. Brian Finkel or Dr. Nabil Ghali to name a few) to those who have cared so little for these women that they left the abortion mills in plastic bags, or died later from neglect.

Abortionist beats wife

In 1999, Abortionist Neville W. Duncan was placed on 18 months’ probation, sentenced to 30 days in jail and fined $250 after pleading no contest to charges that he beat his wife. He was also arrested when police found crack cocaine in his pocket.

Duncan was arrested after allegedly punching his wife in his car, then pinning her to the ground and slapping her after she climbed out the window of the vehicle, according to Milwaukee Journal Sentinel article, (Doctor sentenced to 30 days in jail -01-15-1999).

News reports indicated that Duncan served time for contempt of court, when he failed to provide the required child support he owed.

Abortionist guilty of murdering wife

December 11, 2001, The Oklahoman detailed the murder trial of abortionist John Baxter Hamilton. Hamilton performed abortions at the Oklahoma Clinic for Women in Oklahoma City, OK.

Hamilton was found guilty in the Valentine’s Day killing of his wife, Susan Hamilton, 55. Her nude body was found lying in blood in the master bathroom of the Hamiltons’ Quail Creek home, her skull fractured and face disfigured. She had been choked with a necktie and beaten to death.

News Reports of the case indicated that Hamilton’s wife had suspected the abortionist of having an affair with a topless dancer who may have been a patient of the doctor’s. His wife was considering leaving him and talking of divorce two days before the murder.

Authorities noted that after Hamilton murdered his wife he then called 911 to report the death. Authorities found the woman dead on the couple’s master bedroom floor.

He was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole in the murder of his wife and was ordered to pay $11,104 for the cost of his incarceration. Following his murder conviction, Oklahoma and Tennessee revoked his medical license and on September 19, 2003, Hamilton voluntarily surrendered his Georgia license.

Abortion doctor accused of killing wife

On December 15,2006, the Hattiesburg American reported in an article, (Doctor pleads not guilty to killing his wife ), that abortionist Malachy DeHenre was arrested after a new indictment accused him of shooting his wife, Dr. Nyasha DeHenre, in the head in their Laurel home in 1997. At his first trial in 1999, the jury voted 11-1 to acquit him, resulting in a hung jury.

According to a WDAM News 7 news report, (Doctor to face 2nd trial for wife’s slaying: 12-18-2006), DeHenre is also being charged with the rape of a then 21-year-old patient when he was practicing at the Family Health Care Center in 1992.

DeHenre has a long history of trouble in his performance of abortions and treatment of women. He performed abortions in Alabama before he lost his license to practice in that state, according to a Washington Post story , (Alabama Abortion Clinic to Stay Shut: 6-15-2006).

The Post reported that DeHenre formerly worked for the Summit abortion clinic in Alabama which, was closed in 2006 after state inspectors found them dispensing RU-486 without a doctor present. The article says that in December of 2004, the Medical Licensure Commission of Alabama indefinitely suspended the license of Malachy M. DeHenre. The commission ruled that DeHenre’s conduct in four cases from 2000 to 2003 was “immoral, unprofessional or dishonorable” and that he endangered his patients through “gross malpractice.”
In March of 2005, DeHenre’s license was indefinitely suspended by the Mississippi Medical Board. It had been temporarily suspended in 2004 after one of DeHenre’s Alabama abortion patients died. A 2004, Clarion Ledger report entitled, Abortion death cited in action against doctor Ala. suspends license of Jackson abortion practitioner, reveals that the Alabama State Board of Medical Examiners found that the patient was discharged from Summit Medical Center 20 minutes after having an abortion on Nov. 25, 2003. Less than six hours later, her husband contacted the medical center and reported that his wife had abdominal pain and a low temperature.

She was taken by ambulance to a Birmingham hospital, where she died. She sustained an unrecognized uterine perforation during the abortion, the board said. “Subsequent hemorrhagic shock led to her ultimate demise,” according to the board’s report to the licensure commission.

According to the Clarion Ledger, (Suspended doc: Didn’t like doing 35,000 abortions: 3-18-2005), after his suspension in Mississippi, DeHenre said that he did not like performing some 35,000 abortions, but did so because he needed the work. “I ask for your forgiveness,” Dehenre said. “I don’t want to be an outcast. I want to be among the medical community.” The Mississippi State Board of Medical Licensure told the press that they received “more than one complaint, ” in the case.

After DeHenre’s 2006 arrest he was denied his bond request and will be held in the Jones County Adult Detention Facility in Ellisville until his trial, which will likely be held in the spring of 2007.

Commentary by VICTIM in above attack-Patte Smith:

Dr Nelson Kraucak was charged with battery after knocking down & kicking me & trying to steal my camera at James Scott Pendergraft’s notorious Orlando Women’s Center abortion clinic.

When I was attacked by an angry aborting father named Dr Nelson Kraucak at Orlando Women’s Center abortion clinic on August 29, 2007, there was no one other than the sidewalk missionaries to capture the assault on video. Thankfully, we had noticed Dr K’s menacing behavior & had taken our camera out & turned it on in hopes of avoiding violence. However, it didn’t stop the doctor, who flew into a rage and came after me. Kraucak knocked me to the ground & kicked me repeatedly as a terrified Mary Jo screamed for help.

I was shocked when I read the police report at the state attorney’s office. It was written by Orlando Police Officer Charles Mays, the OPD security on duty at Orlando Women’s Center at the time of the attack. Although the perpetrator, Dr Kraucak, was still inside the clinic with his aborting wife . Dr Kraucak was not even QUESTIONED by OPD officer Charles Mays! Could this be because a ‘conflict of interest’ prevented the Orlando police officer, whose sworn duty is to protect, from wanting to do anything to interfere with the ‘business’ of the late-term labor & delivery abortion that was just getting started? (22 week abortions are $2500, 23 week abortions are $2700, 24 week abortions are $2900. One of the illegal late-term abortions that Pendergraft committed at Orlando Women’s Center cost the 7 month pregnant mother a whopping $12,000!

The state attorney’s office filed battery charges against Dr. Nelson Kraucak on December 21, 2007. The Orange County clerk’s office will take the charges that have been filed, clock them in & assign the arraignment date. Dr K will be served a subpoena & he will be demanded to appear at the arraignment. If Dr K or his attorney “fails to appear,” then a warrant will be issued for his arrest. The new case number for the battery charges against Dr Nelson Kraucak is: 2007-MM-148789

Our hope is that Dr K will be served with the subpoena soon. A tape of my frantic 911 call is available at Orlando Police Department.

Two violent pro-choice abortion supporters arrested , one accepts probation:

In September of 2009 Pro-life activist Johnny Wallace, 69, was attacked on by two women as he stood holding pro-life signs in front of City Hall in Flagstaff, Arizona. The women, both 48, yelled profanities at him, attempted to take his signs and wrestled him to the ground.

On the day of the attack, Wallace, who daily protests in front of City Hall, held two text-only signs. The signs said, “Abortion kills more black Americans in four days than the Klan killed in 150 years,” and the other, “Life begins at conception and ends at Planned Parenthood.

Radical pro-choicers, Denise Redsteer and Laura Chapman were the two women who attacked the elderly Wallace who was viciously knocked to the ground as he attempted to protect his signs from one of the women. The other woman then joined in the struggle.

Wallace was treated for minor injuries after the incident by medics called to the scene. Police arrested and charged both women with misdemeanor counts of disturbing the peace and criminal damage.

In November of 2009, Denise Redsteer, 48, accepted a “deferred prosecution” in Flagstaff Municipal Court, said City Prosecutor Lisa Stankovich.

Deferred prosecution does not admit guilt, and if Redsteer successfully completes the terms of her probation, the charges against her will be dismissed.

Stankovich said that Redsteer has also agreed to pay a $150 prosecution fee and not commit any criminal offenses during the probationary period.

Planned Parenthood CEO arresed for Shop Lifting, made over 100 Grand

2008

ABC News: http://www.abc6.com/news/rhodeisland/19085769.html

ABC 6 News Reporter Robert Goulston has the story of a local CEO caught shoplifting at the Warwick Mall. Planned Parenthood of Rhode Island President and CEO Miriam Inocencio was caught by police stealing a shirt from Macy’s several weeks ago. Now reaction from those that know and work with Inocencio.

Hummel splits from ABC6; Planned Parenthood CEO resigns

Susan Yolen, a spokeswoman for Planned Parenthood of Connecticut, which was poised this week to assume administrative control of Planned Parenthood of Rhode Island (PPRI), attributed the change to the difficulty of a small organization operating in a changing health-care market.

Yet it’s fair to suspect there’s more to the resignation of Miriam Inocencio, who had been CEO of PPRI for more than 10 years, in part since it reportedly came after an internal split among members of the local reproductive-rights’ organization’s board of directors.

At press time, Inocencio had not returned a phone message left at her Warwick home. And for her part, Yolen offered few specifics about how Planned Parenthood’s Connecti-cut organization became involved in the Rhode Island operation.

Yolen says Inocencio’s departure was unrelated to her having faced, as reported by Channel 6 in May, a shoplifting charge.

Asked about the financial condition of PPRI, Yolen said, “I really can’t say.” She nonetheless vowed that the delivery of services at the organization’s Providence location will not be impacted in the short-term, and that PPRI will remain viable.

Warwick Police arrested the 59-year old in the spring after they say she stole an $89 Liz Claiborne blouse. The case was pleaded out in court and Inocencio reimbursed the store as part of the agreement.

Inocencio says she gave her voluntary resignation a couple of weeks ago, and that she is proud of what she accomplished during her 13 years as the director of the non-profit organization.

Congressional Black Caucus, Blue Dogs Join Conservatives to Oppose Internet Regulations ( Net Neutrality)

(CNSNews.com) –
Wednesday, October 21, 2009
By Fred Lucas, Staff Writer

Two groups of House Democrats that are not always on the same political page have joined forces to oppose federal regulation of Internet traffic currently under consideration by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

The FCC is moving forward with plans to approve “net neutrality,” rules that essentially would prohibit Internet service providers from charging add-on fees to certain Web sites for accessing their networks. Advocates of net neutrality argue that without new rules, a duopoly of cable and telephone companies can “discriminate” against certain Web content.

But 72 House Democrats, all members of either the centrist Blue Dog Caucus or the more liberal Congressional Black Caucus, signed a letter to the FCC charging that “net neutrality” regulations would stifle competition.

We remain suspicious of conclusions based on slogans rather than substance, and of policies that restrict and inhibit the very innovation and growth that we all seek to achieve,” the members of each caucus said in a joint letter to the FCC last Thursday.

Opponents of the regulations say the rules would likely slow down the Web, make it tougher to block spam, create the need for more government bureaucrats as new bureaucratic rules tend to require, and discourage investment in broadband technology.

Democrats such as Reps. Ed Markey of Massachusetts and Henry Waxman of California have supported the regulation. Republicans have mostly led the opposition, with Sens. John McCain of Arizona and Charles Grassley of Iowa writing a letter to the FCC last week cautioning against the regulation.

But the letter from Democratic House members last week used some of the same arguments Republicans have advanced.

A decade ago, broadband was a nascent service, and only one percent of U.S. households connected to the Internet through broadband lines,” the letter from Democratic lawmakers said. “Today, by contrast, roughly two-thirds of Americans connect through high speed connections that are available to 95 percent of households.”

Signatories included prominent Democrats such as Reps. Health Shuler of North Carolina, Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas, Bernie Thompson of Mississippi, Baron Hill of Indiana, Ed Towns of New York, Silvestre Reyes of Texas, and Alcee Hastings of Florida.

While we have further to go as a nation in extending the benefits of broadband to all, it is our strong belief that continued progress in expanding the reach and capabilities of broadband networks will require the commission to reiterate, and not repudiate, its historic commitment to competition, private investment and a restrained regulatory approach,” the letter continued.

Supporters of net neutrality rules include the left-wing MoveOn.org and the media reform group Free Press. Opponents include the pro-free market group Freedom Works and the conservative Family Research Council.

Primarily, the battle lines are drawn between ISPs such as Verizon and AT&T that want the freedom to charge fees to high volume Web sites to expedite connection speed, and major Web companies such as Google or Amazon.com that have a lot of traffic but want to avoid paying those fees.

The letter from the CBC and the Blue Dogs sparked anger from net neutrality supporters such as Gigi B. Sohn, president of Public Knowledge, a liberal advocacy group on digital issues. She accused them of betraying their constituents.

It’s a pity that 72 members of the Blue Dog Caucus and the Congressional Black Caucus are deserting one of the fundamental planks of President Obama’s platform — a free, open and nondiscriminatory Internet,” Sohn said in a statement.

The people who those members of Congress represent are the most at risk from the closed, controlling Internet that the phone and cable companies want,” Sohn continued.

The constituents of these members of Congress have the fewest choices of providers and access to the least competition. They have the lowest Internet data speeds; they have the diminished opportunity to use the Web to its fullest potential. They are being betrayed,” she said.

Speaking to the Brookings Institute on Sept. 21, FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski stressed the need for net neutrality rules.

I am convinced that there are few goals more essential in the communications landscape than preserving and maintaining an open and robust Internet,” Genachowski said.

In view of these challenges and opportunities, and because it is vital that the Internet continue to be an engine of innovation, economic growth, competition and democratic engagement, I believe the FCC must be a smart cop on the beat preserving a free and open Internet,” he added.

But FCC Commissioner Robert McDowell strongly disagreed, saying there is no need for new Internet regulation.

The premise outlined in Chairman Genachowski’s speech is that the Internet is broken and the government has to fix it,” McDowell told a gathering at the conservative Heritage Foundation last week.

For the average consumer, are they being frustrated in some way, other than their broadband speed is too slow?” McDowell said. “Can they go to any site and download anything they want? For the vast majority of consumers, the answer is yes.

So if you want to envision a place where the Internet helps foster democracy, where it helps foster prosperity, where it can be a tool for raising the human condition, in a free and open manner, if you want to envision that, I think that exists today,” he added.

Internet service providers such as Comcast, AT&T, and Verizon Wireless argue that technological innovation is putting more and more pressure on bandwidth capabilities. As more people demand more services, such as streaming video at greater speed, the ISPs have to make more financial investments for Internet infrastructure.

The sites that tend to clog up the information highway the most – those with high volume – are most likely to be asked to pay an add-on fee to the ISP if there are no net neutrality rules.

Instead of passing the costs of those investments to the customer, the big ISPs could ask Google or Microsoft to pay extra for the use of its network. That’s because Google and similar high volume Web sites use more bandwidth than smaller sites. These high volume sites, thus, could slow connections speeds for users accessing other lower-traffic Web sites.

On the other hand, if a net neutrality regulation or law is passed, the ISP could not recoup more of those costs from Google, Microsoft or other tech giants. So the cost of adding lanes to the information highway would be passed on to consumers.

Advocates of net neutrality point to three major instances of what they consider abuse by the cable and telephone companies.

In 2004, the North Carolina telephone company, Madison River Communications, blocked its customers from using the popular Internet telephone service Vonage. Vonage complained to the FCC, and almost immediately the commission stepped in. Madison River paid a $15,000 fine to the FCC to settle the matter and vowed to stop blocking Vonage or any other competitors.

In September 2007, Verizon Wireless rejected a request from the NARAL Pro Choice America for a five-digit “short code.” These codes allow users interested in hearing messages from a business, movement, or politician to sign up and receive free text messages. The reason Verizon gave for the refusal is that it “does not accept issue-oriented (abortion, war, etc.) programs.”

Upon reversing itself, Verizon spokesman Jeffrey Nelson told The New York Times that the policy imposed in this instance resulted from an “incorrect interpretation” of a policy “designed to ward against communications such as anonymous hate messaging and adult materials sent to children.” Nelson said. “The decision to not allow text messaging on an important, though sensitive, public policy issue was incorrect.”

In late 2007, Comcast slowed the traffic for some subscribers who were downloading large files that were clogging the network. BitTorrent, creator of a popular file sharing program, allows users to exchange these big files on the Web. Those big files use a lot of capacity, which slows down other Web traffic.

To tackle this problem, Comcast slowed down the transmission of the big files shared on BitTorrent. This allowed its other traffic to move more quickly, but BitTorrent complained.

Comcast and BitTorrent worked out an agreement in April 2008, without a government solution, which allowed file-sharers to use Comcast’s network and not slow down the service for other users. However, the FCC still ordered Comcast to stop blocking or slowing files. Comcast is appealing the FCC order in federal court.

The three cases cited time and time again were resolved,” McDowell told CNSNews.com. “There are an incredible number of net communications every day. If we are looking at any misconduct, whether it’s intentional or not, as soon as the spotlight is shined on them, it would go away. We have more and more competition.

“If there is a bad actor out there acting in an anti-competitive way, then consumers would have a choice of other Internet providers,” McDowell added.
