Leo Tolstoy once said, Imagine Genghis Khan with a telephone. Imagine Genghis Khan, or a gaggle of Genghis Khans, running the Internet, and you have a sense of the ideas that will be percolating in Dubai at the World Conference on International Telecommunications in December.
Delegates from 120 countries will gather under the auspices of the United Nations to consider a plan to take administrative control of the Internet away from the United States and hand it over to an international body run by the UN.
In short, governance of cyberspace will pass from the country that has kept it free and accessible since its creationthe United Statesto the same organization that gave us the financial scandals at UNESCO, voted to designate Zionism as racism, and seated China, Syria, and Muammur Qaddafis Libya on its Commission on Human Rights.

No more UN for US-list
If people want on or off this list, please let me know.
How do we stop this from happening? Mr. Joe Average American has no say in what goes on at this conference, let alone the U.N.. Someone give me a direction, a way to act on this and I’ll be more than happy to help, I have lots of free time and would hate to see the internet controlled by God knows who.
I have a differing view.
We’ll create a “FREENET”. All those troglodytes on the old “Internet” will slowly die the death of dinosaurs.
I’m okay with it. There’s a technological fix. Pakistanis will merely rot faster without their Internet Porn fix.
Free people outside of government in the few countries that remain free are more powerful that all the censors in the world.
So there’s your Daily Dose of Sunshine!
Time to start opening data centers in the red states surrounded by barbed wire and orders for the armed guards to shoot at blue helmets.
Here’s what they will do. Make the “rich” countries pay a fee to use the Internet. No fee for oppressed, downtrodden countries. Make impossible rules for “hate speech.” People who express opinions that were common 50 years ago will be fined. Middle-eastern death cult sites that call for extermination of Jews will be safe. Sales will be taxed. FR will be shut down.
Then check out this post from JR:
U.N. to Seek Control of the Internet
People can write letters to their representatives and inform people around them. Maybe include the US control over the internet in a amendment to the First Amendment so no foreign entity can take control guaranteeing freedom of speech. The press is included there, why not the internet? Contact Jim Robinson, I bet he has some ideas!
Tear their HQ down, brick by brick.
The UN wants to “control” the internet? Ha. Good luck to ‘em. As long as there’s a market for porn, there’s no way the UN can stop it. Free speech is along for the ride. Remember that next time someone cries out to stop porn on the internet.
Porn is what keeps the freeways plowed when it snows.
I watched with interest when the internet started chugging: How is money to be made? The answer came quickly.
Screw that it would be a very short time until we had a second parallel system up and running free from the rag head logic.
If the UN ends up doing this (with the obvious approval from our so-called UN Ambassador (Obama sock puppet Susan Rice), I propose that a total Internet blackout for a day so that the US will see how much money and how many jobs will be lost.
The Internet is a means of free speech (not that this administration cares about our rights!). If it is taken over by the totalitarians of the UN, it will create a VERY bad situation here at home!
Abraham Lincoln said: Democracy is the government of the people, by the people, for the people.
And the internet is the voice of the people. It’s a powerfull voice that the UN wants to control and it will be used to silence all critics, thus ending the freedom of speech so many people gave their lives for. The US gave the oppressed people worldwide a voice, a hope to make this world a for more democracy and freedom of speech that are basicly one. 200 years ago people died to make true the words written on a piece of parchment. So now is the time to stand for the words written on a webpage.
Then those will be data centers connected to nothing. All the Euroweenies need to do is threaten the carriers with stiff fines and they will fold.
this is a taxation issue.
control the internet and you control the power to tax.
the UN wants the power to tax
The UN wants control of the internet.
Folks. It is spelled: Antichrist. When he comes on the scene, he will need control over everything. Banking especially. Banking is going the way of the internet. Everyone is paying bills over the net today. You check your banking on the net. Buy, sell, trade on the net. This is what he will need. Complete control of the net. This gives it to the UN, which will be part of him. It is coming. The day of the antichrist is coming. The Bible is plain and clear on this stuff. If you do not believe, you still have time. After that day comes, the Church is gone, you will not have that easy road any more. God is giving everyone who does not believe time. It is running out.
DISMANTLE UNaccountable bureaucracies. UNaccountable bureaucrats are useless eaters
