Network Neutrality is a really stupid, anti-capitalism policy - that outlaws on the Internet several basic, fundamental free market tenets that are in practice in every other sector of a functioning economy.

How anti-capitalism?  College communications professor and avowed Marxist (please pardon the redundancy) Robert McChesney wrote: “(T)he ultimate goal is to get rid of the media capitalists in the phone and cable companies and to divest them from control.”  Which means get rid of every private sector Internet Service Provider (ISP) - and leave us with government being the only ones connecting us to the Web.  How very Bernie Sanders of him.  How very Hugo Chavez of him.
How really stupid?  You’re familiar with free shipping on online purchases, right?  Where the company pays the Post Office for delivery - so you don’t have to do so?  You’re familiar with 800 phone numbers, right?  Where a company pays the phone company for your call - so you don’t have to do so?

Net Neutrality outlaws on the Internet this mundane, commonplace practice.  Which is why companies like Facebook and Google spent a decade-plus trying to have Washington, D.C. jam it into place.  These companies use a LOT of Internet bandwidth - DC mandating that they can’t be charged for it would be a very good, inordinately crony thing for them.
Many Donald Trump supporters think he is a slam dunk to beat Hillary Clinton in the general election. The candidate himself certainly takes this view. 
But Trump's analysis of current public polls is preposterous. In the RealClearPolitics.com average of recent polls, Trump trails Clinton by 6 points, 47 to 41 percent. Ted Cruz, in contrast, leads Clinton 46 to 45 percent.

Ex-candidate Marco Rubio and splinter candidate John Kasich have been running even better. All at least equal the 46 percent that is the lowest percentage won by either party's nominee this century. Against each of them Clinton falls short of that.

Trump's poll performance is not just a momentary blip. In 49 polls conducted matching him against Clinton starting last May, Trump led her in four, tied her in two and lost to her in 43.

Since the Feb. 25 debate, when Cruz and Rubio (finally) started pummeling him, Trump's losing margin has increased from 2 percent to 6 percent. His current 41 percent is his lowest showing in the RCP average since last August, when people were just starting to seriously contemplate his candidacy. Polls typically show 60-plus percent of voters with unfavorable feelings toward him, even worse than Clinton's 50-plus percent unfavorable rating.

Trump's standing could decline further if and when he is nominated. Then the mainstream media -- which has been giving him lavish coverage and acceding to his unusual demands for telephone interviews and non-mobile cameras -- will likely join the Democrats in unleashing attack after attack. That probably won't help!

WATCH Historic speech by Hungarian PM: “The question upon which the future of Europe stands or falls is this: Shall we be slaves or men set free?”

Pamela Geller / Atlas Shrugs

Victor Orban is a beacon of light shining out from a rapidly darkening continent.

Here is the complete translation of Victor Orban’s speech (via The Rebel):
The destiny of the Hungarians has become intertwined with that of Europe’s nations and has grown to be so much a part of the union that today not a single people — including the Hungarian people — can be free if Europe is not free.
And today Europe is as fragile, weak and sickly as “a flower being eaten away by a hidden worm.” Today, 168 years after the great Wars of Independence of the European peoples, Europe, our common home is not free
Ladies and Gentlemen, Europe is not free. Because freedom begins with speaking the truth.
Today in Europe it is forbidden to...
Stopping Donald J.Trump
By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots on http://www.americanpbn.com/

"Republican voters want a nominee who best represents their party and their wishes for America... Someone with honor, someone with dignity, someone who shares their moral values and the public policies necessary to make us a better country."                                                          - Congressman Mo Brooks, R-AL, speaking out against presidential candidate Donald J. Trump

Let's start with a simple fact...Donald J. Trump is not presidential material...period. He is egotistical, crude, condescending, insulting, rude, and has an unsubstantial platform driven forward by anger and crass-for-ratings commercialism aided by the 'it's all about ratings' media whores who have...like they did with Barack HUSSEIN Obama...anointed Trump king.

And while many think Trump is unstoppable nothing could be further from the truth no matter what Sean Hannity and his cronies tell you for like I've said many times before, this election is about numbers and numbers alone...more specifically delegate numbers not the number of states accrued...for it's delegate numbers who help one reach the magic number of 1,237 and nothing else, and Donald J. Trump is not getting the delegates he needs to win a first ballot round at this summer's Republican Convention.

Remember, there are still about 20 states left that still have to hold their primaries...20 states that still have to award more than 1,000 delegates...20 states most of which are closed primary states meaning that only registered Republicans may vote in said state primaries...and it's in closed primary states where Trump has not done well or at least not garnered the numbers projected. Trump has won 10 states so far (as of this writing) that have held presidential primaries or caucuses with Nevada and Florida being the only closed primary states that he's won. All the other closed primary/caucus states were won by Ted Cruz leaving Cruz's campaign “encouraged” because there are still more closed primaries states than open primary states to go.

And that leads us back to the convention floor where the possibility of a brokered or contested convention grows more likely with each passing day.

"Regardless of who it benefits, if the Rules Committee for the Republican National Convention has a plan to suddenly change the rules to subvert the will of Republicans across the country, that is a very perilous path with many, many problems and not advisable," said Cruz strategist Jason Johnson.

And let's not forget what happens if the convention goes brokered or contested. Ted Cruz and his campaign have (rightfully) stated that a brokered convention is not something Cruz is open to because a brokered convention would allow the RNC to choose a candidate who has not won a single vote yet is one who they and they alone believe better represents the party. However, Cruz has said that he is open to a contested convention unless the RNC, at this late date, suddenly changes the long-standing floor rules...even if said changes gave him the advantage. Cruz wants the rules staying as they are, but that is something that cannot be guaranteed as some in the party heirarchy are looking for any way possible to stop the current media perceived and perpetrated Trump steam roller.

So again we go back to delegate numbers, and with Marco Rubio's suspending his campaign that leaves roughly 170 delegates (and maybe even a few more as his name will still appear on many state's ballots) up for grabs. And as I write this Trump has 673 delegates (updated now to 739...498 short of the amount needed to win the GOP nomination); and Ted Cruz has 411 delegates (now updated to 465); meaning Rubio's delegates could be the deciding factor in who gets the nomination...as in Rubio holds the 'Trump card'...pun so very much intended as payback will indeed be a bitch.

But here are the facts...there are three tiers of delegates with the first being those whose states allow them to be freed immediately upon a Rubio’s withdrawal from the race; the second being those freed as per state rules after a certain number of ballots at the convention; and the third being those delegates freed once Rubio officially releases them, which could conceivably never happen if certain state delegates stay loyal to him.

The most coveted by the other candidates...especially Ted Cruz...are the 29 of Rubio's delegates who are now immediately free to cast a ballot for another candidate right off the bat. These 29 'free agents' so to speak come from New Hampshire, Arkansas, Minnesota, Georgia, and Wyoming. There are also 40 of Rubio's delegates bound to him for one ballot...even though he suspended his campaign...and then are freed. These delegates come from Iowa, Texas, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, Virginia, Kentucky, Louisiana, North Carolina, Washington, D.C., and Georgia. However, in the case of Georgia, if Rubio officially releases his delegates before the convention, then Georgia’s 14 delegates will become 'free agents' who can vote for whomever they wish to. Rubio's 9 Tennessee delegates are bound to him through the first two ballots and the 34 delegates from Nevada, Oklahoma, Kansas, Alabama, and Massachusetts are actually what's called 'bind delegates' and must remain bond to Rubio until they are officially released by him most likely through a public statement.

So you can see that Marco Rubio has now been afforded some power at the Cleveland convention with, to date, his giving no indication of his intentions to release any of those delegates. And why hasn't he...that's because most people do not understand the difference between suspending a campaign and formally withdrawing from the race, and until he formally withdraws...if he does... they're Rubio's delegates and they cannot be taken away from him. And herein lies said power as Rubio is just as interested as the RNC is in stopping Trump from getting to the 1,237 delegates needed to secure the nomination.

So what happens now to those delegates who do become released even without Rubio's officially releasing them... according to Republican Convention delegate expert Josh Putnam, they can actually be bribed...yes bribed...for according to the 21 pages of the 'National Republican Party Rules' there is not a single line that prevents gift giving to delegates for votes. And while these rules are always subject to change right up to the convention, seriously would anyone vote to say no to 'perks' in exchange for their vote...I would hardly think so as this is the game of politics and dirty politics have always been and will always be part of that game.

So with the rules not preventing bribe taking the question remains can delegates be held legally liable if they do accept a bribe in exchange for their vote? As reported in 'Law Newz', according to election law attorney Ben Ginsberg it would not be impossible for Ted Cruz or John Kasich...if he's still in the race that is...to file actions to see if they do have a case in court if Trump starts giving gifts or even favors to delegates. Saying, “I mean, that would just be part of the overall circus,” Ginsberg added that some states might have rules...ethics rules...against gift giving and gift accepting but it seems most states do not when it comes to a nominating convention.

Nice huh...the buying and selling of presidential votes is technically allowed...and some still wonder why our country is in the shape it's in today.

But this election cycle...a cycle probably like none any of us have seen before...proves that any and everything can and will happen...and delegate numbers be damned when anger becomes the driving force in who shall become the next president.

And in the Republican corner we now have reality TV star Donald J. Trump, a philosophical liberal trying to pass himself off, at least for now, as a conservative...and one dressed in 'Made in China' clothing to boot...a con man extraordinaire and one who lacks the understanding of the many layers of power needed to be a successful president...a man who has no clear principles or tangible working policies to back-up his media driven sound bytes...and a man who via bullying tactics is out to not only hurt but to destroy the true conservative movement growing within our country...vs not John Kasich, a man who has no chance whatsoever of securing the nomination (so he'll probably, in my opinion, sell out just like Ben Carson...with the hope of becoming Trump's VP pick)...but vs Ted Cruz. Cruz...a true conservative both politically and morally who as last man standing is now the party's sole hope of stopping Donald J. Trump... the man who sees the presidency as an entry-level position on his way to becoming king.

But Cruz's stopping Trump comes back to numbers again...1,237 in specific...and that number must be attained before the convention or Donald J. Trump will turn the convention into a reality show like none ever seen before...a 3-ring horror show with himself as ringmaster and with 'We the People' as the freak show...and that is something neither we nor America can ill afford.
