Congress Struggles to Save Internet While Google Facebook Twitter Urge UN Control

submit to reddit

President Obama wants this to be the last month of an open, uncensored internet guaranteed by the U.S. government. His plan to end American stewardship would hand new power to authoritarian governments offended by the internet as we know it.

The good news is it appears congressional leaders have agreed to rescue the internet in time to prevent the Sept. 30 expiration of U.S. oversight. Sen. Ted Cruz who is trying to redeem himself after the mess he created in the Republican primaries, has pushed hard against the plan since it was announced two years ago, told me last week he’s “cautiously optimistic” legislators will block it through a rider to the federal budget: “The basic proposition of keeping the internet free has united Republicans across the spectrum and should also unite Democrats with Republicans.”

Top Senate and House Republicans have signaled they will ensure U.S. oversight continues to protect the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, or Icann, and its stakeholders. The leaders of the four congressional committees that oversee the internet—Sen. John Thune and Rep. Fred Upton (Commerce) and Sen. Chuck Grassley and Rep. Bob Goodlatte (Judiciary)—sent a detailed letter last week to Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker and Attorney General Loretta Lynch: “This irreversible decision could result in a less transparent and accountable internet governance regime or provide an opportunity for an enhanced role for authoritarian nation-states.”

Google, Facebook, Twitter urge Congress to hand over internet control

On October 1st, the US is supposed to hand the “keys” of the internet to ICANN, and Congress is not happy about it. The mostly Republican lawmakers, led by Ted Cruz, feel that ceding control will stifle online freedom and give power to authoritarian governments. However, technology companies including Facebook, Google and Twitter penned an open letter to Congress, urging lawmakers to handover internet domain control to the international community as promised.

The final proposal, drafted by “proud and active members of the internet community,” goes well beyond the US Commerce Department’s original criteria, set in 2014, according to the document. “Furthermore, crucial safeguards are in place to protect human rights, including the freedom of speech,” it adds.

We’ve got a better idea, the US Congress should hand over only Google, Facebook and Twitter to the UN if they so much want it, not the entire internet. Who the hell do these scumbags think they are? They are just 3 DOMAIN NAMES. Anyone can BUY a domain name and make a website. They are just that, DOMAIN NAMES. They think they are BIG CORPORATIONS? They are that only because they get traffic which they convert into money. Its simple, no traffic, no money, no more arrogant “yeah we’re big corporations and the congress should listen to us!” attitudes. Who do they think they are to decide and dictate to other domain names such as us for example? If you want UN control, FINE, go but don’t try to push others!

People should dump these websites immediately and find alternatives. They would go bankrupt in a month.

    Cultural Marxism has been dubbed “the greatest
    cancer in the Western world” but few even know what it is.

    Definition of Cultural Marxism:

    Cultural Marxism: An offshoot of Marxism that gave birth to political
    correctness, multiculturalism and “anti-racism.” Unlike traditional
    Marxism that focuses on economics, Cultural Marxism focuses on culture and
    maintains that all human behavior is a result of culture (not heredity / race)
    and thus malleable. Cultural Marxists absurdly deny the biological reality of
    gender and race and argue that gender and race are “social constructs”.
    Nonetheless, Cultural Marxists support the race-based identity politics of
    non-whites. Cultural Marxists typically support race-based affirmative action,
    the proposition state (as opposed to a nation rooted in common ancestry),
    elevating non-Western religions above Western religions, speech codes and
    censorship, multiculturalism, diversity training, anti-Western education
    curricula, maladaptive sexual norms and anti-male feminism, the dispossession
    of white people, and mass Third World immigration into Western countries.
    Cultural Marxists have promoted idea that white people, instead of birthing
    white babies, should interracially marry or adopt non-white children. Samuel P.
    Huntington maintained that Cultural Marxism is an anti-white ideology.
    Critics of Cultural Marxism have maintained that Cultural Marxists intend
    to commit genocide against white people through mass non-white immigration,
    assimilation, transracial adoption and miscegenation.……
