The New Jersey congressman sponsoring the AIRWAVES Act told Big League Politics why his bill is an important step in the national effort to reboot the expansion of 5G Internet service.

 

“People care about Internet policy,” said Rep. Leonard J. Lance (R.-N.J.), the vice-chair of the House Communications and Technology Subcommittee.

“We have a chance to put a bipartisan bill on the President’s desk that will actually improve service and reliability – at a time when consumers are demanding more and more data,” the congressman said.

“We need to make sure enough commercial spectrum is available as we try to win the international race to 5G. This should pass with overwhelming bipartisan support,” he said. “There are unserved areas that don’t enjoy the high-speed service of metropolitan areas. It’s time to end this divide.”

The bill seeks to encourage the federal government to free up more spectrum for commercial licensed and unlicensed use, he said.

More spectrum will improve data service from all providers and help close geographic gaps in coverage, he said. Unlicensed spectrum will also help support the usage of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technologies, among other innovations.

The Lance bill is cosponsored by the senior Democrat on the subcommittee, Pennsylvania’s Rep. Michael F. Doyle.

“I’m very proud that this legislation requires that 10 percent of the proceeds from the spectrum auctions included in this bill would go toward the buildout of wireless broadband in rural America,” Doyle said.

“These are much-needed investments that would benefit unserved and underserved communities,” he said.

“To compete in the 21st century we must have a robust spectrum pipeline so we can win the race to 5G as we did with 4G LTE,” Lance said.

“We also have to close the connectivity divide and bring reliable Internet service to a larger segment of Americans – especially those in unserved areas,” he said.

The legislation includes requirements to make sure rural areas get attention by dedicating certain proceeds from spectrum auctions go directly into development for wireless broadband infrastructure to unserved and underserved areas, he said.

‘Let Them Be Free!’: Marjorie Taylor Greene Urges Trump to Pardon Edward Snowden and Julian Assange for Exposing ‘the Crimes of Barack Obama and the Deep State’

This is what real conservative leadership is all about.

Soon-to-be Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia is joining a movement urging President Donald Trump to pardon NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange for opposing deep state corruption.

Greene made the declaration with a Twitter post on Thanksgiving night:

Greene made the comment in reference to a renewed push from Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) for President Trump to pardon Snowden and Assange.

“Since you’re giving pardons to people, please consider pardoning those who, at great personal sacrifice, exposed the deception and criminality of those in the deep state,” the iconoclastic progressive lawmaker wrote in a tweet.

“Brave whistleblowers exposing lies & illegal actions in our government must be protected,” Gabbard wrote in a Twitter post accompanying a video recording earlier this year. “Join me and urge Congress: Pass my bipartisan legislation (HRes1162, HRes1175, HR8452) calling for charges against @snowden & Assange to be dropped & to reform the Espionage Act.”

Big League Politics has reported extensively on Greene’s bold approach that completely rejects the conventional wisdom of the Washington D.C. swamp on a wide variety of issues, particularly foreign policy:

New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez tried to get sassy on Twitter in light of the recent drama regarding election regularities taking place across the nation.

Due to this, President Donald Trump has not conceded the election and is waiting for the courts to settle any kind of irregularities at polling locations in key swing states. This obviously has Democrats and their media allies fuming over Trump’s steadfast devotion for the rule of law and election integrity.

One of the most outspoken critics of Trump’s decision to not concede has been AOC. She tweeted on November 10, 2020, “I hope people realize that the same Republicans who are refusing to acknowledge the results of our elections also champion disastrous foreign policy claiming they’re ‘bringing democracy’ to other nations.”

AOC’s comment was met with immediate backlash after incoming Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene offered her two cents on the matter. The new congresswoman for Georgia’s 4th District tweeted “You voted for @JoeBiden who voted for the Iraq War, which cost America trillions of dollars and thousands of lives.”

… Greene was specifically calling out AOC for her hypocritical behavior of voting for a candidate that was one of the most seasoned proponents of foreign adventuring and a big booster of the defense industry. Certain officials from defense contractors such as Raytheon CEO Gregory Hayes have stated that a Biden presidency would not entertain any form of defense cuts whatsoever. Biden is the consummate political insider and AOC’s support for him belies her marketing as an outsider.

Greene is showing how the Republican Party should be shifting with Trump at the helm. Greene’s rise represents a populist, anti-establishment GOP that rejects neocon usurpers like former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX).
