Image of the Day: U.S. Internet Speeds Skyrocketed After Ending Failed Title II "Net Neutrality" Experiment

CFIF often highlights how the Biden Administration's bizarre decision to resurrect failed Title II "Net Neutrality" internet regulation, which caused private broadband investment to decline for the first time ever outside of a recession during its brief experiment at the end of the Obama Administration, is a terrible idea that will only punish consumers if allowed to take effect.

Here's what happened after that brief experiment was repealed under the Trump Administration and Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai - internet speeds skyrocketed despite late-night comedians' and left-wing activists' warnings that the internet was doomed:

121 Ten Things You Need To Know About S.3827, The DREAM Act

1. The DREAM Act Is NOT Limited to Children, And It Will Be Funded On the Backs Of Hard Working, Law-Abiding Americans Proponents of the DREAM Act frequently claim the bill offers relief only to illegal alien “kids.” Incredibly, previous versions of the DREAM Act had no age limit at all, so illegal aliens of any age who satisfied the Act…

122 Nancy Pelosi’s Plan to Kill Her Own Caucus

Passing controversial legislation with narrow majorities and parliamentary tricks is a recipe for electoral disaster.  Cramming a series of unpopular votes into a lame duck session after a national shellacking is political suicide.  Apparently, outgoing U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is to House Democrats what Jack Kevorkian was to…

123 Eric Holder’s Department of Injustice

The Obama Justice Department’s decision to sue Arizona for copying federal immigration law is more than just the latest example of political calculations trumping sound legal reasoning.  Combined with its refusal to press charges against members of the New Black Panthers for voter intimidation and fighting for a terrorist’s right to…

124 Casualties of the Mexican Border War

On Monday, June 7, U.S. Border Patrol agents on bicycles were attempting to arrest two men illegally crossing the border from Mexico to the U.S. on the banks of the Rio Grande near El Paso.  As they were detaining the two, one of whom had previously been deported for illegal entry, the agents were met with “large” rocks thrown by a…

125 Will Boston Boycott Massachusetts?

A hallmark of today’s liberals is their commitment to protest without sacrifice.  The most recent series of examples come from city councils reacting to Arizona’s new illegal immigration law.  From Los Angeles to Boston, local elected officials are declaring disapproval of the Grand Canyon State by promising to boycott it. …

126 Just Shut Up about Arizona, Mr. President

In the public ceremony welcoming the state visit of Mexican President Felipe Calderon, President Obama could have been diplomatic and graceful, without attacking Arizona for its new illegal immigration law.  Instead, he chose to provoke and exacerbate, for political purpose, an already out-of-control political attack on the state for a law not…

127 Who Is Kris Kobach and Why Should Proponents of Illegal Immigration Fear Him?

Once again, a bright conservative attorney is proving the virtue of careful attention to detail.  On its face, Arizona’s new immigration law sounds in perfect harmony with the express will of decades-old pronouncements of the national legislature.  Thanks to the efforts of Kris Kobach, an immigration law expert and one of the architects…

128 Praising Arizona

Wouldn’t you know it?  Arizona Governor Jan Brewer’s ink is hardly dry on Arizona’s new illegal immigrant law, and it has ignited a national outcry with all the usual suspects saying all the usual things.  We’ve seen this movie before, and it’s getting really old. What is getting even older is the abject failure…

129 When Illegal Aliens Take Over the House, Courtesy of the U.S. Senate

Sometimes, the public square can be mistaken for an insane asylum.  On November 5th, an amendment to a bill funding the Census Bureau was defeated in the United States Senate.  Unlike most proposed changes to routine spending bills, the amendment co-sponsored by Senators David Vitter (R-Louisiana) and Bob Bennett (R-Utah) would have required…

130 United Nations Meddling Threatens U.S. Sovereignty

The United Nations once again has its sights set directly at U.S. sovereignty, as it’s ramping up two broad-based efforts leveled directly at America’s internal governance. For starters, U.N. Secretary-General Ban-Ki-moon seeks to control U.S. carbon output and cripple the U.S. economy. And would you believe that the U.N. also seeks to…
