Giving the Internet to Globalists

The Internet has been handed this way and that way.  Between the FCC and the United Nations, Obama's treatment of the internet seems to be that he wants it in the hands of those who would control it with an iron fist, while claiming it's for the sake of freedom of the technology.  Now, with the United States planning to give up its stewardship at midnight on September 30, 2016, the United Nations (the same internationalists who have a resolution designed to criminalize free speech . . . especially if it is against Islam) is positioning itself to grab control of the technology.

There is no plan in place to stop globalists from grabbing hold of control of the internet, either.

Antitrust rules don’t apply to governments or organizations operating under government control.

Without the U.S. contract, Icann (the company that runs the domain name biz) would seek to be overseen by another governmental group so as to keep its antitrust exemption. Authoritarian regimes have already proposed Icann become part of the U.N. to make it easier for them to censor the internet globally.

The Obama administration has spent the past two years preparing to give up the contract with Icann, and during that time the Obama regime also stopped actively overseeing the group. That allowed Icann to abuse its monopoly over internet domains, which earns it hundreds of millions of dollars a year.

The only thing worse than a monopoly overseen by the U.S. government is a monopoly overseen by no one—or by a Web-censoring U.N. Congress. . . and that seems to be where things are heading.
