Will YOU Allow Obama to Give Away U.S. Oversight of the Internet to Countries like Russia, China, Iran…?

Like the post? Why not make it Facebook official. ⇊

We all like the Internet right? The ease (ok sometimes) with which we can look up information, read a book, watch a movie, or even buy stuff. The Internet is a supremely useful tool in the lives of many people. The Internet is now so common that it is no different then having a TV or a microwave, it’s something almost everyone has, and we in the USA tend to take it for granted.


 

General Michael Flynn defense fund Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn. 


The Internet actually had its beginnings in the U.S. as ARPANET, or the Advanced Research Projects Agency Network – funded by the U.S. department of defense. In time and through the contributions of many people, it became the Internet we all know today.

In just 8 days – Barack Obama, without Congressional approval, is going to hand over control and regulation of the Internet to foreign countries.

All Internet top-level domain names (TLD), such as .com, .org, etc. are developed and controlled by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, or ICANN. ICANN also controls the IP address system; everything on the Internet has an IP, including your computer. As well, ICANN controls the Root name servers, VERY important in the operation of the Internet.

Some are saying control of the Internet is being turned over to ICANN, not really true on the face of it. ICANN is a corporation begun in 1998 with its home base being in California. ICANN has always managed the root functions of the Internet mentioned above. The difference is – the U.S. Government has oversight of ICANN as this company was contracted to the U.S. government to oversee name servers etc. Now, Obama wants to end that oversight, effectively giving control of the Internet to ICANN directly.

ICANN will oversee large parts of the Internet, “so what”, you say? ICANN has many members – like Russia, China, Iran, and others, over 162 countries. If Obama succeeds in his quest to give up U.S. oversight of ICANN, the U.S. will only be one of many members with a vote! What happens if oversight of ICANN is given to the United Nations?

ICANN is basically an administrator for the Internet. Some sites such as Politico and Snopes are downplaying this situation as no big deal. This writer believes they are woefully incorrect; the potential for abuse once there is no longer US oversight is tremendous.

How do you think the Internet might change when there is no more U.S. oversight? When countries like Russia and China decide some changes are due? ICANN already has a dangerous affinity for China…

From The Daily Signal:

For example, ICANN officials have already begun showing an extraordinary affinity for China, the world’s leading abuser of the Internet, according to Freedom House in 2015. ICANN gatherings have even featured Chinese officials responsible for government censorship and Communist Party propaganda.

In fact, ICANN’s former president and CEO, Fadi Chehadé, recently joined a high-level working group for China’s World Internet Conference whose actions had prompted Reporters Without Borders to declare China an “enemy of the internet.”

And don’t be fooled into believing that the multinational corporations within ICANN’s governing structure will stand up for free speech in the face of Chinese threats. That would be dangerously naïve.

Hillary Clinton desires to stamp out conservative Internet sites, like the one you are on now – how much easier would that be without U.S. oversight of the Internet do you think? Keep in mind the context of this comment – yes the U.S. retains oversight currently, but if the U.S. no longer did, then given that a large chunk of the rest of the world hates us and desires to see the USA crash and burn – would this not make it easier for Hillary to obtain censure requests for sites on the Internet?

How will free speech on the Internet be affected? How about Christian sites? Worldwide censorship will become a reality, not a possibility.

Nothing is likely to happen immediately, but it is this writer’s opinion that something will happen, and it will not be anything good.

If you value the Internet the way it is now – free for all to use, then sign the petition to stop Obama, and help pass the Protecting Internet Freedom Act.

You can sign the petition on Liberty Council’s website here.

Please share this with as many people as you can, we need to STOP Obama from giving away control of the Internet. Remember – we only have 8 days to stop this from happening.
