UN May Tax and Censor Post-U.S. Internet, Experts Warn
09 April 2014
Following the Obama administrations decision to cede control over key elements of the Internet, the UN is already plotting to tax and censor the Web.

Call me silly, but recently I was considering a number of ‘electronic communications’ issues.
Recent statement by 0bama that one should give-up their cable TV and cellphone to pay for health insurance.
Americans just last year viscerally opposed an internet tax congress was attempting to pass.
Consider the strong push to do away with landline phones and then see 0bama’s statement about giving up your cellphone for healthcare...
Now our government hands over the control to the UN who we all know will censor and tax the communication systems. One has to stop and question that doesn’t all this appear to be a backhanded form of stopping free speech and access to truthful information, not government propaganda?
It all just appears to me, as a noose is being tightened one notch at a time, to cut us off from being able to communicate. Not only about events here, but from events around the world.
Hello [again] shortwave radio!
I think you’re on to something.
There aren’t too many governments on Planet Earth who wouldn’t just love to curtail criticism.
Even the so-called “free nations” have plenty of officials in place who’d shut up opposition in a heartbeat if it could be done for “economic” reasons rather than as political repression, per se.
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.
We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream.
It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same,
or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children
and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."
President Ronald Reagan
With the US uninvolved in ICANN, you can bet your bottom dollar that Internet freedom will become a “not for thee” proposition.
It used to be that the “Internet” when first conceived and realized was too expensive for the masses. Hence the reason universities and the military were the only enterprises with the chops to setup the infrastructure. Now we’re simply going full-circle with the Internet becoming a wasteland where only people with money can play.
Tomorrow’s Internet will be a heavily-regulated, heavily-policed arena where free thought is forbidden. Think: China.
We’re already operating under a gov’t contrived and controlled news black-out. A “press” which willingly self-censors in order to promote the Progressive Fascists agenda is hardly a “Free” press.
United States citizens will never pay the UN, we despise the UN and if it tries to tax us, we will abandon the internet as it currently exists and invent another. So the UN can put that in it’s pot pipe and smoke it.
I mean its
It’s always about the money.
And the power that derives from the money.
Watched the nightly news the other night. Nothing important was reported, just fluff. Airliner, march madness and a 1 hour hit piece on global warming w a nasa rocket scientist turned weather expert.
The funny part was it was filmed in the arctic during the summer and tried to pass it off as midwinter. What a bunch of bs watching government scientists espouse how everyone in the science community is behind this.
and so am I, because I've believed this since the *****r took office.
A United Nations with global taxation authority is the de facto world government.
Ubama is preparing the way for his next job... Secretary General.
Yes, I know he's not eligible, but rules don't apply to him.
Outernet is coming folks!
How is he not eligible? The UN states:
The UN does not adhere to a basic set of candidate qualifications for the position of Secretary-General. However, a 1945 report by the United Nations Preparatory Commission set out the following qualities (as summarized by Security Council Report 21 June 2006):
Administrative and executive qualities to integrate the activity of the whole complex of United Nations organs;
Leadership qualities to determine the character and efficiency of the Secretariat;
Skills to lead a team recruited from many different countries and build the necessary team spirit;
Moral authority to model the independent role required by Article 100 of the UN Charter;
Ability to play a role as a mediator;
Capacity to act as an informal adviser-or confidant-to many governments;
The highest qualities of political judgment, tact and integrity because of the need at times to take decisions which may justly be called political, not only because of the political role that is expected, but also because of the power to bring to the attention of the Security Council any matter (not merely any dispute or situation) which in his opinion may threaten international peace and security;
Communications and representation skills to represent the United Nations to the public at large and secure the active and steadfast support of the peoples of the world without which the United Nations cannot prosper nor its aims be realized; and
Overall qualities which demonstrate to the world at large that personally the candidate embodies the principles and ideals of the Charter to which the Organisation seeks to give effect.
Now while rational people would realize that BHO fails any number of these, the UN would see the shiniest turd on the pile.
If the UN gets taxing authority,
you can bet the next step is a global UN armed enforcement entity.
Would that not be a perfect opportunity for BHO to reveal that he was never a US citizen?
And the US media would gush about how clever he was.
How do we go about opening our OWN internet?
Those pretty blue helmets make nice targets!
