More than half a hundred Republican Reps signed onto a letter asking Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai to "continue ensuring" that consumer broadband privacy is maintained until the FCC "remedies" the Title II reclassification. Republicans are pushing the FCC to roll back Title II.

Lead signatories on the letter were House Commerce Committee Chairman Greg Walden (R-OR), Communications Subcommittee Chairman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Digital Commerce and Consumer Protection Subcommittee Chairman Bob Latta (R-OH). The letter was phrased to signal that they thought the FCC had been protecting privacy and just wanted to emphasize the need to continue to do so and to do so along the lines of the Federal Trade Commission's privacy by design approach to edge providers and, formerly, ISPs. "Until such time as the FCC rectifies the Title II reclassification that inappropriately removed ISPs from the FTC's jurisdiction, we urge the FCC to continue to hold ISPs to their privacy promises," the letter reads.

NOT GOING TO HAPPEN

Wire communications merging with radio communications (Wi-Fi) have ALWAYS been all the "web or open nternet" has ever been. -FACT-

The worldwide network of interconnected wires and radios have been an unsafe Title II Common Carrier for communications since developed. Most usage of the "web or open nternet" is criminal despite the FCC mission described in 47 USC §151.

The FCC can't re-start ignoring the fact that 2 + 2 = 4 like the FCC has done since the "Reno v. ACLU", (1997) SCOTUS mistake which laster until Neeley Jr v. 5 Federal Communications Commissioners, et. al. (2015).

The FCC did not reclassify "open nternet" but ADMITTED the scientific fact that "open nternet" is nothing more than the merger of radio and wire communications.

The FCC can't change wire medium communications merging with radio medium communications into anything besides Title II common carriers. Hmmm there should be a federal agency with a mission of making these publicly accessible communications mediums safe. See 47 USC §151. Looks like FAKE NEWS is already criminal use of wire.

I can't sue the FCC AGAIN but can make sure the public realizes the FCC destroyed the morality of most of the wire communications connected Earth via allowing illegal "open nternet".

I will now contact every Senator who admitted their confusion regarding privacy by signing this mistake. Gosh...
