Robocaller hit with $10 million fine by FCC

A robocaller has been fined $9.9 million for using caller ID spoofing to intentionally cause harm, the US Federal Communications Commission said on Thursday. The scam caller made thousands of robocalls using prerecorded racist, xenophobic and threatening messages, the FCC said.

The calls were made to a victim's family, a local journalist, political candidates -- and even as an apparent attempt to sway a jury that was hearing a domestic terrorism case, said the agency. The caller ID spoofing made the calls look like they came from local numbers.

"Not only were the calls unlawful, but the caller took them to new levels of egregiousness," said FCC Chair Ajit Pai. "With today's fine, we once again make clear our commitment to aggressively go after those who are unlawfully bombarding the American people."

After Blake’s shooting, Democratic politicians immediately poured gasoline on the fire. Wisconsin governor Tony Evers tweeted:

While we do not have all of the details yet, what we know for certain is that he is not the first Black man or person to have been shot or injured or mercilessly killed at the hands of individuals in law enforcement in our state or our country.

The governor didn’t say one word against rioting.

Not surprisingly that night, bored young people invigorated by authority figures like the governor poured into Kenosha’s streets and burned much of the business district.

The next day, Joe Biden issued the following irresponsible statement, making no attempt to calm the situation and prevent additional rioting, not even in the interest of deterring the spread of COVID:

Amnesia of the Anarcho-Tyrannists

Is it just me or has the entire universe of establishment media, politics and Hollywood forgotten that this country has endured an entire year of relentless violent anarchotyranny?

Antifa and Black Lives Matter rioters set businesses and churches ablaze, smashed state capitols and laid siege to federal courthouses. They permanently destroyed precious statues and symbols of America’s heritage. They assaulted elderly people, stalked and menaced bystanders, taunted and terrorized law enforcement. And they committed murder — dozens of times — in the name of social justice while the powers that be sat idly by.
