Hi again Female Muscle Fans. This article is written with the most recent information about defense for Internet as we know it and now we have more details to respect.
After the last two movements like Businesses for Net Neutrality and Red Alert for Internet (last Monday it was a protest in all City Halls around the USA), the progressive senators with a Democrat majority applied a political maneuver called Discharge Petition, with it the political defense of Internet achieved the reunion for Senate in Wednesday for discussing the subject, all that with the support of all NGO (No Goverment Organizations) and consumers like us for taking back the grim decision of destroying Net Neutrality. The architect of this nasty plan was Ajit “Faggot” Pai, the former corporative Verizon lawyer, who thought that with his plot his former company would be benefited with a brutal censorship in which Verizon, AT&T, Spectrum and Comcast would control all we watch and visit online, but progressive associations and consumers like us we said no so fast, because we won’t die before fighting for our right to a valious Media like Internet.
From December of 2017 the team Internet prepared a counterattack in which the Senate vote would be determinant, in this part appears the One More Vote movement, this plan could obtain the necessary votes from Democrat party that supported Net Neutrality from the start and their votes were 48, later the independent Senator Angus King from Maine gave his vote and 49 votes were possible, now the fight would be try to find in Republican Senators’ party more allies for this cause. Republican Party in its majority supported to evil oligarchs with this ugly measure, but Susan Collins from Maine thought Internet is a Media in which the democracy has reached a new level of making contact with people and its needs, so she gave her vote and the number grew to 50.
50 votes were assured but it was necessary to achieve another Congress member with the last vote, 51 to be exact. The fight was not so easy, and from February to April, it was a time lapse of 2 months for obtaining the last vote from another Republican Senator.
The progressive pages like Daily Kos, Open Media, Demanding Progress and the union of small businesses owners and consumers like us organized protest marchs and boycotts against the greedy companies Verizon, Spectrum, Comcast and AT&T. Such movements worked very well and it were the proof that organized citizens can make a bigger difference. They fought with drawn sword and they knew every movement was the difference between victory and defeat.
Back to political sight, 6 Republican Senators were undecided with this subject, and the best way to pressure them was with phone calls, leaving messages in their Facebook and Twitter profiles and visiting their City Hall office. The undecided Senators were Lisa Murkowski, John Kennedy, Orrin Hatch, Rob Portman, Cory Gardner and John McCain. From all of them, Kennedy from Louisiana was the best man for Vote 51, but immediately the lobbies of Team Cable began to pursue him to corrupt his vote. The remaining Senate members were the last hope for this fight in order to defend Net Neutrality.
After the last strategies like Businesses for Net Neutrality and Red Alert, some relevant facts gave a powerful turn of events. Ajit Pai was being investigated for some monopoly practices in order to approve the Sinclair Broadcasting group merger with Time Warner as well as the discovery of bots and fake users that tried to misinform through social networks about this subject. AT&T was discovered in some mysterious reunions with Michael Cohen, one of lawyers at service of the biggest bully on Earth, Donald “Shithole” Trump. Cohen received a payment of $600,000 dollars for being a key ally to influence in several decisions like Net Neutrality. Later, John McCain was unable to vote due to his health troubles, so the fight was being inclined to Team Internet.
The D Day arrived, Wednesday 16th was crucial because the discharge petition did the job to force the vote for Net Neutrality, and the tide turned into Team Internet favor because 2 more votes from Republican Senators appeared at the most critical moment. The Senators were Lisa Murkowski and John Kennedy, who gave the fatal blow to FCC anti Internet measure, such nasty plan would take effect in June 11th, but with Senate Vote in favor to Net Neutrality the evil plot fell defeated and buried. Yes it is, the victory is ours at last, after hard months of fights and negotiations.
Today, we are pleased to communicate that Net Neutrality has been saved and with this result, democracy has reached one more victory against oligarchs who want to impose their dark laws above people’s will.
Now the Senate has restored Net Neutrality, the fight will be more intense because the next stage will be the House of Representatives, and this is the moment of keep maintaining the guard in up. Most of Representatives are seeking the re-election inside this administration and this is the perfect chance to leave them a clear and powerful message: if you want our votes, please work for us, no for oligarch donors and lobbies army. As a British song says: they don’t speak for us.
Today we can celebrate this triumph, but we need to stay alert in order to destroy the next dirty plays of evil oligarchs who are very upset and furious, but now they know we are ready to fight with all our strenght to end with injustice and corruption acts.
That’s all for this article and we want to thank to all Team Internet members that are progressive senators, representatives, ngos and citizens like us for defend one of the most influential communication media as Internet is. And of course the union makes the strenght. Female Muscle Universe supported the defense of open Internet since the beginning and now is time to keep our alert on fire, whereas we are celebrating this important victory for Internet.
