    Even most idiot liberals are opposed to this... say goodbye to a free and open internet if something isn't done to stop this soon.

    Two Months Left Until Obama Gives Dictators Control of Internet

    President Barack Obama is determined to give away control of the Internet within two months — one of theworst blunders in the history of national security, economic policy, and the fight for liberty generally.

    In the wake of the embarrassing revelation that the National Security Agency (NSA) was spying on foreign leaders, the Obama administration announced plans in 2014 to shift control of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) from the U.S. to a multilateral body.

    Under the supervision of Obama crony and Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker — a billionaire heiress and campaign bundler with no technological experience, and a history of failure in the subprime loans industry — the administration has ignored critics of the plan. They point out that transferring control of domain names to a body like the UN’s International Telecommunication Union (ITU) could leave autocratic nations like Russia, China, and even Iran in charge of the world’s most important free medium.

    Breitbart News noted in 2014:

    U.S. control of domain names has guaranteed freedom of speech and commerce across the Internet, against the strenuous efforts of countries like China and Iran to suppress Internet traffic and content. In addition, victims of international terror have found potential relief in U.S. courts by suing to seize the domain names of countries like Iran in lieu of direct compensation. Without U.S. control, those victims would have no possible recourse.

    The Republican-controlled House passed legislation in 2014 to defund the ICANN transfer, and in 2015 to provide Congress with a 30-day period to review it when it happens. Earlier this year, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI) introducedthe Protecting Internet Freedom Act to prevent the transfer without Congressional approval.

    But while the bills have been debated, the administration has moved ahead, the Washington Examiner reports, with transfer scheduled Oct. 1.

    Well then, before it is too late let me just tell everyone that the Earth really is flat and we live in a closed system surrounded by a solid firmament. NASA is a hoax and Antarctica is an ice barrier surrounding everything and holding the oceans in. All of the PTB know this and openly mock it as a wink and a nod to each other. We do not live on a globe; that's just one of many YUGE lies about this world. Not kidding. Do some homework.

    You're welcome.

    Worst Anti-President EVER.

    The WSJ reports that the Obama administration looks at the move as "necessary to maintain international support for the internet and prevent a fracturing of its governance."

    What a fucking dipshit.

    The federal government will surrender U.S. control of the internet to international authorities.

    The Washington Examiner reports that the Department of Commerce will "finalize" the transition on Oct. 1.


    The upshot: the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority which translates numerical addresses into a readable language shift from U.S. control.
    It will be run by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, which the Examiner describes as a "multi-stake holder body that includes countries like China and Russia."

    Special:
    The Wall Street Journal reports that the Obama administration looks at the move as "necessary to maintain international support for the internet and prevent a fracturing of its governance."


    But Sen. Ted Cruz and advocacy groups including the Americans for Tax Reform and Heritage Action oppose the transfer, saying the agency could be used by "totalitarian governments" to trigger a global shutdown of the Web, the Examiner says.

    So, something(Transfer) that was started in 1998 is now Obama's fault? :haha:


    NTIA in 1998 partnered with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), a California-based nonprofit, to transition technical DNS coordination and management functions to the private sector. NTIA’s current stewardship role was intended to be temporary.

    This is the same stupid reasoning idiots tried to use for giving Iran 1.7 billion dollars.

    Why do you think it hadn't happened yet?

    Because you:
    A) Don't give state sponsors of terrorism 1.7 billion dollars

    B) Don't hand over control of the internet to China and Russia.

    Obama's agenda is to marginalize the United States' power and influence wherever he can.

    So It was Obama's Idea back in 1997 to implement this?
    While he was living in Kenya.
    Got to give the guy credit, he is smarter than I thought.
