SKYE’S LINKS 06/02/22

Jack linked to this in last Friday’s HFR, saying it was a “big you-know-what deal,” and asked me to comment.  Yes, this could be a HUGE deal.

It has long been agreed that states can declare that both physical object and information carriers are common carriers. This means that they cannot discriminate against customers demanding that they carry legal information or objects so long as they pay the same service charge as anyone else.  AT&T, Verizon, Comcast, UPS, Fed-X, for example, cannot refuse to provide service to Trump supporters so long as they pay their non-discriminatory bills.  This decision is based on generally accepted legislative and court case history going all the way back to the 19th century.  there is nothing new about this.  This is the approach that Clarence Thomas recommended.  It means that the days of major social media censorship are coming to an end:

Unfortunately political leaders often use wars as an excuse for serious economic problems, and CCP Emperor Xi might do so in Taiwan.  For example, Xiden continues to blame our high gasoline and diesel prices in the US on the war in the Ukraine.  The real problem is that extant regulations and the promise of further regulations against fossil fuels has severely inhibited investments in oil and gas exploration, production, transport (look at what happened to the Keystone XL pipeline after investors sunk billions of dollars into it) and refineries.

These high energy prices will not vanish with the end of the war in the Ukraine.  High prices are exactly what the green fanatics and the WEF oligarchs want as the most effective way of achieving their ends:
