Say goodbye to US Control of the Internet.
The federal government will surrender U.S. control of the internet to international authorities.
The Washington Examiner reports that the Department of Commerce will "finalize" the transition on Oct. 1.
The upshot: the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority which translates numerical addresses into a readable language shift from U.S. control.
It will be run by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, which the Examiner describes as a "multi-stake holder body that includes countries like China and Russia."
The Wall Street Journal reports that the Obama administration looks at the move as "necessary to maintain international support for the internet and prevent a fracturing of its governance."
But Sen. Ted Cruz and advocacy groups including the Americans for Tax Reform and Heritage Action oppose the transfer, saying the agency could be used by "totalitarian governments" to trigger a global shutdown of the Web, the Examiner says.
I guess that means that if you want to buy a gun online or ammo you had better do it before October 1st. Be prepared to have China, Russia, and Iran dictate what we can see and say. Global censorship is on it's way. I suppose all cell phone, emails and phone lines communications will go right along with it.
No - This is not treason - it's just Obama.
Is this another well orchestrated move to distract attention away from the November elections and a possible Trump victory? A distraction away from the Hillary email scandal?
BELIEVE ME ROOSTER THEY TRY EVERYDAY TO MOVE AWAY FROM WHAT HILLARY IS AND HAS DONE
IT IS NOT WORKING. ALTHOUGH MANY WILL BELIEVE HER BUT I FEEL TRUMP IS REALLY WINNING
I DO NOT LK AT THE POLLS. HIS SPEECH IN NC LAST NIGHT WAS GREAT AND HE IS VISITING LA
TODAY. HE IS MORE PRESIDENTIAL THAN OUR PRES AND HE HAS NOT BEEN ELECTED YET.
HILLARY IS HIDING OR NOT WELL. HER VENEZUELA VISION OF AMERICA IS NOT OURS.
THE INVASION OF OUR NATION BOUGHT AND PD FOR BY SOROS IS NOT BODING WELL FOR HER.
