New Year’s Resolution: Prevent the UN from Voting Itself Our Internet Overlord
Big Government ^ | January 5th | Seton Motley

The Barack Obama Administration has, since its inception, been moving the United States dramatically leftward, trying to (at the very least) make us a western European socialist entity. Ideologically, a full-on participant in – rather than a rational outlier of – the patently absurd United Nations (UN).

Perhaps the greatest – and worst – example of President Obama’s UN-ing of America was his Federal Communications Commission (FCC)’s December 2010 illegal Network Neutrality Internet power grab.

The Administration going to these unlawful lengths to commandeer control of the ‘Net makes it a little more difficult to persuade international autocrats and dictators to leave alone their portions of the World Wide Web.

Or ours.

Which brings us to the United Nations.

Behold the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) – a wing of the UN. They will be in December convening to renegotiate the 24-year-old treaty that deals with international oversight of the Internet.

And it doesn’t look good (shocking, I know.)

I have commented here on Free Republic for years that we have to get the UN out of the US and stop funding our own death warrant through the UN until it becomes a more MODERATE world organization dedicated to advancing CIVILIZATION rather than debasing the US in front of the world.

I think Obama and the Clintons would like to trash our Constitution and put us under UN treaties. They, of course, would have to stay in power as the ruling class of the United Marxist States.

ITU History

ITU was founded in Paris in 1865 as the International Telegraph Union. It took its present name in 1934, and in 1947 became a specialized agency of the United Nations. Although its first area of expertise was the telegraph, the work of ITU now covers the whole ICT sector, from digital broadcasting to the Internet, and from mobile technologies to 3D TV. An organization of public-private partnership since its inception, ITU currently has a membership of 193 countries and some 700 private-sector entities. ITU is headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, and has twelve regional and area offices around the world.

Pinging the Agenda 21 folks. Title says it all.

If you want to be on or off the Agenda 21 ping list, please notify me by Freepmail. It is a relatively low volume list in which we have been exploring the UN Agenda21 and related topics. We have collected our studies with threads, links, and discussions on the Agenda 21 thread which can be found here:

[Note to thread participants. I’ve been out of pocket and plan to get caught up with some thread postings soon.]
