You better enjoy the internet while you can because China and Russia might be telling you what you can and cannot browse soon. Because of Obama’s naive idiocy, the United States is relinquishing control of ICANN, the group that curates internet domains, and the United Nations will probably take it over.
The Wall Street Journal explains how this is happening:
When the Obama administration announced its plan to give up U.S. protection of the internet, it promised the United Nations would never take control. But because of the administration’s naiveté or arrogance, U.N. control is the likely result if the U.S. gives up internet stewardship as planned at midnight on Sept. 30.
It all has to do with an anti-trust exemption that the WSJ explains at length, but it suffices to say that because of Obama’s naiveté, control of the internet might fall into the hands of the U.N., and the despots that hold sway over that useless organization.
Authoritarian regimes have already proposed Icann become part of the U.N. to make it easier for them to censor the internet globally. So much for the Obama pledge that the U.S. would never be replaced by a “government-led or an inter-governmental organization solution.”
Rick Manning, president of Americans for Limited Government, called it “simply stunning” that the “politically blinded Obama administration missed the obvious point that Icann loses its antitrust shield should the government relinquish control.”
Pretty stunning alright, and it’s only a month away. Why isn’t the media covering this? Oh wait, they’re too busy covering Trump’s latest outburst, or what he’s tweeting, or busy helping Hillary defend her scandal-ridden campaign. Meanwhile, the world’s despots are poised to take control of literally TRILLIONS of dollars worth of online commerce. And all they have to do is buy off ICANN to do it.
Here’s a video about how the change of ownership was planned:
And if you think no one is interested in controlling the internet, think again!! Islamic governments have already been implicated in shutting down social media sites in order to quell uprisings among their people. Get ready for your internet to be controlled by these same totalitarians!!
What do you think? Should we trust the despots of the world with control of the internet or retain it ourselves? Let us know in the comments section below!!
