Skip to comments.U.S. to relinquish remaining control over the Internet
Posted on 03/15/2014 6:58:10 AM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum
U.S. officials announced plans Friday to relinquish federal government control over the administration of the Internet, a move that pleased international critics but alarmed some business leaders and others who rely on the 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 last year to revelations about National Security Agency surveillance.

The first thing I expect to see from this are taxes, fees and imputations that will be added to our respective internet associated bills so that the third world filth of this world can get paid.
let me begin by posting the working link
Sure, we spent millions creating it for the military. Then we allowed private use of it which created a whole new economy. Now let’s give it away! Hey how about to China? They have a great record on free speech!
ormer House speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) tweeted: What is the global internet community that Obama wants to turn the internet over to? This risks foreign dictatorships defining the internet.
The North Korean Internet..how special/.
I can’t someone in Congress is not going to step up on this. It’s treason straight up. And please don’t answer telling me the country’s already gone and I should just suck it up, that’s never helpful.
If you like your Internet, you can keep your Internet.
obama is a traitor and a criminal
Its treason straight up.
Bill O’reilly still thinks Obama is a patriot.
The point is:
obumbler has long wanted to control political internet content.
Our laws and the Constitution make that difficult.
So turn it over to someone else and let them do it from overseas.
At that point, our courts and congress have no power to uphold freedom of speech.
When will the weenies in congress and the national press wake up and kick this slime ball out of office?
O’Reilly argues against the overtime rules while still championing the minimum wage hike. The idiot makes you dizzy listening to him.
What are the chances of the development of a shadow internet beyond the control of government and its henchmen?
Carter gave away the Panama Canal. Obama evidently want to make sure that he eclipses Jimmy’s abysmal record in every possible measure.
Nothing to do now but set about creating a new inherently secure internet NOT controlled by government.
We have one weapon, and that is our $$$. Identify and boycott the companies that support leftist causes to the best of our ability.
This is something we can do, now. The question is, will we? Or, is that Corvette or weekend at the movies more important?
that's why Obama the socialist traitor is doing it
let the UN or foreign morons not constrained by the Constitution censor the internet:democrats can't have the truth getting out on the internet
It seems that the Great Bloviator has difficulty getting good people on his show anymore. Nobody of any substance or self-respect is willing to put up with him.
He has clearly “held back” from criticizing Obama and is always giving him “the benefit of the doubt” in hopes of getting the big interview. His talking points are generally insightful and informative, but the rest of his show is mostly boring and predictable.
Time to stop being makers for the takers...
. “But rejoice because we have homosexual marriage, that’s all that matters (to liberals). “
Believe it or not, that is also what matters to a lot of Conservatives.
I doesn’t bother me all that much. I can live without it. Some adjustments will need to be made but it is not a necessity. Besides, I get T3 access through my workplace. I just won’t have the luxury of working from home if I give up high speed access if it becomes overly taxed or unaffordable..
Romney would have been just as bad, which is why I voted independent.</sarcasm>
When H@!! freezes more solid than the ice around the global warming research ships.
Call both the GOP and Dem senators. Keep up the pressure. While this flight 370 ruckus is going on, ozippy is getting one more week of treasonous acts accomplished under the radar. He's going faster and faster with his pen and phone as his lame duck time is running out. Sick to death of this traitor.
Let's DO something. Call today or Monday. Silence is unacceptable.
Jimmy Carter > Panama Canal
Barack Hussein Obama > Internet
Exactly! This is what drives me nuts, our acceptance of this crap. Used to be FR could elect a candidate single-highhandedly or stop government action with calls & emails, now everyone says "Oh well, too late". I still call but maybe should do more of what you're doing and rally the troops.
I think the government's greatest weapon at this point is elections, they insist we focus on the future and let those already in office off with a free pass. We need to make the incumbents accountable before it's too late.
SMELLS like another Obama Admin DISTRACTION
Now you have to deal with a UN tribunal to gain access, and people from places who hate Americans with a passion, all due to the fact that idiots gave up control of a communications system that WE AMERICANS created.
Pure * insanity.
Easy to stop the viewer abuse, don’t turn him on.
Some kind of obtuse sarc post? Looks more like a guilty plea.
Wow an admitted nobama voter. Thanks for the tyranny!
Planning on sarcastically voting for hitlery too?
I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt and take the blame for not being clear, but I agree with you. That was the point of my post.
O has such power and can share it with evil nations. He knows his time is running short in office and has to move fast. People are turning on him. He just said something about having little time to get things done. It's no wonder the NSA is so important to them. Keep the people boxed in and under control.
My husband was going to buy me a ham radio or the ones you can use through a satellite, but you have to get a license to use the satellite. The left already has all the media, except talk radio, but if we can't keep the IRS off our backs, how do we stop the FCC from controlling that too.
Maybe I'm being too....? Regardless, I'm getting a radio, if nothing else, for the fun of it.
Yep, this is nothing but a treasonous transfer of wealth of the highest order!
Unfortunately, the UN is over 80% OIC countries, muzlims. It started out as a very good and lofty idea however it quickly failed. You can see that in every one of their pronouncements against Israel.
Every step of the way it is the west pouring cash into these backwards nations.
OPbama is a muslim at heart seeking to dimininish America and the west in every way.
This is just another example. Once you put all the pieces in place the picture is overwhelmingly “ Screw America! and you Screw the West!”
As bad as the US giving up control of the Panama Canal.
This was a Friday Night News Dump. Which means it's important.
the public has been lobotomized. How about an activist link on the home page here at FR where we can check in first as to what to do for the week? We get graphic posts for funding, how about graphic posts for activism?
Don’t expect any fight from DC. This is the foundation of the NEW WORLD ORDER they have ALL been waiting for.
Could someone like Google/Apple/Microsoft just build another internet and everyone go there?
The NSA would just go there too.
I know that we usually think others will call for help or report a problem. I know that is the problem because everyone waits for everyone else. I go. I do it. I am impulsive and don’t wait. I don’t live according to others. I live according to Christ. He tells me what I should and should not do. Like an orchestra leader He conducts life. If the symphony waited for someone to start, there would be silence.
I love that!
