Skip to comments.U.S. aims to give up control over Internet administration
Posted on 03/14/2014 2:45:36 PM PDT by gooblah
U.S. officials announced plans Friday to relinquish federal government control over the administration of the Internet, a move likely to please international critics but alarm many business leaders and others who rely on smooth functioning of the Web.
Pressure to let go of the final vestiges of U.S. authority over the system of Web addresses and domain names that organize the Internet has been building for more than a decade and was supercharged by the backlash to revelations about National Security Agency surveillance last year.

Say goodbye to the last frontier of free speech and information - now that the UN/China/Islam will end up controlling the net.
I have had it. The US is dead. We have given up out country to the UN.
I am ashamed.
Now that the NSA have all of their back doors in place....
We are a country of cowards. We are over because we have not stood up for what is right.
Makes me ill and you are right. Always have been.
(tho FR would be sorely missed)
Exactly. They aren’t relinquishing anything.
Al Gore is either really happy about this, or really pissed.
Quick, tell Al!
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Our political class has got to be the stupidest collection of people on the planet.
All your computers are belong us.
Until January,2017...That’s how long it will be until the little bastard’s gone.
Looks like Algore pledged his invention to the Chi-coms back in the 90s.
So near yet so far away...the damage this Rat can do in three years is astounding, 2014, is the target, even then the best we can hope for is to slow him down.
Because the UN is just so wonderful at handling things!!
They want to charge for each e-mail you receive and send.
When this thing comes under international control, the 57 nation Muslim voting bloc will dominate decision making as to what is allowed and what is not. Add to that 57 the various communist and authoritarian dictatorships.
Goodbye, free speech. The First Amendment only extends to the water's edge, folks.
They will tax the 'net, and they will regulate the 'net. Our children will inheir SH1T from us. We failed them.
I am sooo angry.
I'll burn off my anger by tormenting some orcs.
Until we elected a [p]resident that didn't understand, care for, or agree with the traditional role of his own office nor that of America in protecting free speech in this dangerous world.
No, we have a dangerous [p]resident.
He doesn't deserve to have his office personified with a capital letter. He has diminished the office that badly.
The Internet was the salient example of FREE SPEECH in this world; we invented it, and now we're giving it up into the hands of, frankly, our enemies. The enemies of free speech.
God help us all.
From Newsmax, on a related topic: treason
Obama has an ideology, he wants to make America very different than it is. He would love to see the American era, which began in 1945, come to an end. He doesnt want America to be the worlds sole superpower, DSouza said.
Now you cant remake America in two years or four years, maybe not even in eight years, but you sure can do it in 16 years and thats sort of Obamas long-term plan.
He wants to make a baton hand-off to a hand-picked successor so that his project can be completed, if not by 2016, then shortly thereafter.
Obama, he believes, is trying to reduce Americas footprint globally.
Hes also a redistributionist not just in America but on the global scale. So he wants to redistribute money within America, yes, but he also wants to redistribute money away from America to the rest of the world and Americas debt is part of a way to do this, DSouza said.
A lot of our debt now is owed to foreigners, so when we accumulate this staggering debt, were essentially shoveling dollars away from the United States and toward Kuwaitis and Saudis and Chinese and so on.
He said some people fear Obama was going to become something of a new Jesse Jackson, kind of the angry black guy with all kinds of racial reparations and affirmative action.
Obama wasnt that. So the whole country heaved a huge sigh of relief and said, all right, this is wonderful, were getting an African-American president whos not going to be, if you will, a partisan for black causes.
Hell be the president for the whole country. What they didnt realize is that Obama has an even more radical agenda. Now, its not a race-based agenda, but it is an agenda of global redistribution and Obama has been able to get away with it with almost no media scrutiny.
“Global Community.” The left never seems to tire of that phrase, even though, time after time, its becomes all too clear that it’s just another phrase meaning complete and utter failure.
Frankly, I don’t care much if Barry wants to get sodomized on his own time, but I sure do wish that he’d stop doing it to what’s left of the country.
Assuming he hasn’t suspended elections and had himself declared “President for Life.”
Surrendering control of the DNS (domain name servers) ... [simply exposes online users’ accounts] ... to Islamic-Jihad/Red Chinese/Russian/so-called-”progressives.”
Thank you, c.b. That’s it exactly.
I tend to agree with you.
Obama seeks to weaken America.
He is doing this all the time. The PROBLEM is the GOP isn’t fighting for America either.
America doesn’t have any support, in our own government.
Both parties, are weakening America.
Only a tiny handful of Rs have principles and courage.
Most are liberals, whores or chcikens***.
....” Loss of US control over the internet...the final vestiges of U.S. authority”....
Next...’the dollar’...all to set the stage for world governance..
O8’ was the kickoff in full view of the audiance when the monetary theft occured which rolled the world banks and markets.....so much revenue moving across the ocean it wasn’t funny.....With Obama in office , his treasonous wife, just a matter of positioning more creeps into his administration to facilitate it all..and it’s been easy for the powers that be to manipulate it all.
I’m just sick...they have precious time left to finish the job and moving at lightening speed....(pen and phone)...and congress can’t move fast enough to stop it....too late.
Once they control the Internet...they control it all...business, industry, banks, institutes, and private citizens. And our young people are primed to accept it as “good” for the “Citizen of the World”.
This should make us all shudder....
“In a statement, Senate Commerce Committee Chairman John D. ‘Rockefeller’ IV called the move consistent with other efforts the U.S. and our allies are making to promote a free and open Internet, and to preserve and ‘advance’ the current multi-stakeholder model of ‘global’ Internet ‘governance’”
Whoever controls the Internet...controls the World’s Commerce and peoples lives...and be assured they will do just that.
I've always thought there would be another new invention to take the place of the ‘net eventually anyway. Can't imagine what it would be, but I never imagined the internet either. Others will do the inventing, and this “giving up control” might spur them on.
This is bad, very very bad. Obama is giving up more of our sovereignty than anyone before him. Get ready folks, our Internet may be gone forever, very soon.
Who has time for such strategic stuff when we’re trying to feed a bum class that is larger than the worker class?
Good ole amateur radio can carry digital stuff too.
I think the desire for bread and circuses will tend to keep the Internet up and running. It is one of those things you don’t stop unless you want riots. Not when half the world wants its fix of Facebook.
There’s a ping list for that.
I was going to mention things like CB radio, etc., but really don’t know much about how it all works. Definitely still a good way to communicate though.
Giving it away as if it’s theirs to give.
Of course, that will be followed by heavy censorship...
Yeah and that’s probably all you’ll get, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. heavily censored of course.
All going according to plan.
Globalist kingpin Henry Kissinger has stated that the main task of Barack Obama will be to create a New World Order, suggesting that the chaos unfolding ...
> What could possibly go wrong ? !
“All in favor of cutting Israel off from the Internet, say ‘aye.’”
To all "TIIWPL" Members, "Houston we may have a problem.
For when the INTERNET goes down and quits working completely (Sorta like Congress only funner)
I've created a FRee Republic Emergency Ping list (as suggested by mitch5501 ) called:
The "The INTERNET isn't working!" ping list.
MD...this is the first ping I have gotten from you.
Now I’m getting worried. Could be with good cause.
Obama or China/Russia/North Korea(?)
Toss a coin....

Yep. Give away US excellence, beause the NSA is not allowed to violate it.Free speech and freedom of information is about to take a huge devolution.The Chinese model will dominate, which is what Obama and the left want. Snowdon has made them into these vile animals who abhor freedom.
