FCC Net Neutrality Collusion?

By Cynthia J Quinn

While trying to get to the bottom of the Net Neutrality scam, I came across some important information that I believe can render the over 300 page book of new internet regulations null and void. This report exposes crony capitalism gone wild, a “follow the money trail” that should alarm us all.

Three months ago, Obama called for strong net-neutrality regulations, an easy ‘fait accompli’ for our tyrannical leader considering the fact that his appointed Chair of the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) is Tom Wheeler, his former campaign bundler who helped raise more than $700,000 to help him get elected twice. Wheeler first became aware of Obama after his wife, Carole Wheeler read one of Obama’s books.They both became early, enthusiastic supporters and even moved to Iowa for nearly two months (where she is from) to head up a field office leading up to the 2008 Iowa caucuses. Obama took the district on polling day.

Upon accepting the FCC position, Wheeler pledged to divest his stock holdings in AT&T, Verizon Communications, and in nearly 80 other technology, media, and telecommunications firms within 90 days of his confirmation as FCC chairman. A former telecommunications industry lobbyist and past president of wireless association CTIA and the National Cable & Telecommunications Association, Wheeler also advised the US Office of Government Ethics (OGE) that upon Senate confirmation, he would resign as partner and managing director of private equity firm Core Capital Partners and refrain from participating in FCC matters that relate to funds affiliated with Core Capitol or to parties represented by Core Capitol.

Wheeler was sworn in as the Chair on November 4th, 2013 and according to Bloomberg Business, as of February 26, 2015 he is still listed as a partner at Core Capital and as an advisor at Mercator Partners, LLC. His position as ‘advisor’ at Mercator involves no less than 288 ‘relationships,’  including some of the same he dealt with at Core Capitol! Also, according to Bloomberg Business, Tom Wheeler is still on the boards of Nielsen Mobile, LLC, Roundbox, Inc., Twisted Pair Solution, Inc., OmniSky Corporation, Impatica Inc., RealNetworks Asia Pacific Co. Ltd., LimeLife, Inc. and TNS, Inc., all telecommunications companies that could very well benefit from his Net Neutrality regulations. The report shows Tom Wheeler is connected to 14 Board Members in 14 different organizations across 20 different industries. At that link, take a look at all his other affiliations! Notice that Wheeler’s age at Bloomberg has been updated and is correct! If even a portion of the Bloomberg Business report is found to be accurate, Wheeler needs to be removed from the FCC now….
