NJ Dem Congressman: Bill Clinton Probably Right About U.S. Ceding Internet Authority
Breitbart ^ | March 25, 2014 | Kerry Pickett

Posted on 03/25/2014 5:31:34 AM PDT by RaceBannon

Congressman Bill Pascrell (D - NJ) appears to be siding with former President Bill Clinton and Republicans on Capitol Hill who are concerned about the administration's plans to cede U.S. oversight of the internet to an international body. "I haven’t come to any conclusion. I think it’s an interesting concept, but I don’t know if I’m supporting it. I’m not leaning in favor of it—right now," Pascrell told Breitbart News on Monday. According to, Clinton bucked the Obama administration and told an audience at a meeting sponsored by the Clinton Global Initiative last Friday, "A lot of people who have been trying to take this authority from the U.S. for the sole purpose of cracking down on Internet freedom and limiting it and having governments protect their backsides instead of empowering the people." The former president also said, "Whatever you think our country has done wrong, the United States has been by far the country most committed to keeping the Internet free and open and uninterrupted."

“People just don’t care.”

That is painfully obvious in my state. Strom Thurmond’s father was said to have shot a man on the street in Edgefield, South Carolina for calling him a liar. The current generation hardly blinks an eye at being called out for lying. Strom Thurmond fought in the Normandy invasion as a man in his forties. The current generation can’t identify Normandy or tell you what continent it is on. Ask them what we should do about the ignorance and apathy that is so prevalent and they will tell you that they don’t know and “COULD care less”. I’m about to turn 70 and damned glad I’m not 17.

Talk about ignorance of the current generation, did you see this? The video was taken at an elite university in Washington, DC:

Typical, all too typical. How about this, have you watched any of the Diceman’s videos?

Watching Mark Dice work these clowns is enough to make someone my age want to give up and just get drunk.

Thanks for the link. Hilarous but at the same time disgustingly pathetic. Its clear how Obama got elected: Zombie America.

The level of ignorance and apathy in this country is astounding. It is also an indictment of our so-called “education system”.

I had not seen any of Dice’s work but noticed that there are a lot of other videos that I’ll check out. Thanks again.

Is there such thing as “national-communist”?

This is a NEW danger.

There is no such thing a half-red, or something like almost-red.

The best is the no-red ...

Digital communication is a matter of TOTAL POWER on the next century, people.

World can live some time with bad leadership, a lot of time with a worst leadershift, but notime wih no-leadership.

It is not a matter of leadership dispute, but accept the right leadership.

For now, it is american people and american institutions.

how much of it you agree to waive?
