Congress Sleepwalks As U.S. Loses Control of Internet

Town Hall.com

By failing to pass a measure to stop the Obama Administration from making good on its plan to cede control of the internet from the United States to an international nonprofit organization, the Republican-controlled Congress gave up, without so much as a whimper, global leadership over the most important communications network in modern times.

The Obama Administration’s unilateral (and now, irreversible) decision transfers control over the free internet to a private entity over which the United States has minimal, if any influence; leaving the door open to countries like Iran, Russia, China and Syria to exert “public policy” input on the manner by which the internet is managed.

While the Democrat Party lauds itself as the champion of “free speech,” nary one of its members called for a “sit in” to protest the Administration’s plan to potentially stifle the freedom heretofore fostered by America’s control of the internet. For its part, the GOP was largely silent in the face of Obama’s assault on a free internet; unlike its repeated and very vocal opposition to Obamacare.

There were a few courageous members of Congress who stood up and challenged the assault on a free internet orchestrated by Obama – led by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. Unfortunately, Cruz and his stalwart band were drowned out in the end by fears that standing up for internet freedom might endanger the Flint spending deal and a billion dollars in taxpayer funding for the Zika scare. And, they simply did not have the votes to counter plaintive cries of “free us so we can go home to campaign” by so many of their feckless colleagues. Go home to campaign now they can, but not with heads held high.  Read the whole article......

Obama is setting himself up to be the Ruler of the World. That's why he and Hillary are pushing Globalization so much. They have visions of ruling the world. The writing is on the wall, check it out for yourself it is all on line. Look back through some of the underhand deals that have been made.

What do you expect from this administration? They give other countries the upper hand in trade and make americans pay extra taxes on goods. They send BILLION$ to very wealthy foreign countries for 'aid', why are we sending our tax money to China, Saudi arabia, Dubai, Mexico, Canada etc? Every working American should be pissed-off. Keep our tax dollars right here to help Americans. Now they give away the internet, Why? Is there some other country that deserves to control the internet more than America?
What a bunch of fools , and ultimately we the people are the fools if we let it continue.

What a piece of garbage article from a garbage site. Cruz and other repubs are just upset that they couldn't fulfill their (probably comcast) lobbyist's bribes.

Crazy! Just Crazy!... Obama and the democratnics are giving this country away. If you are a working American (and there isn't many of us left), you need to think real hard about Hillary . Just keep working hard and expect your tax dollars to help everyone else in the world, if you are ok with that now , vote for Hillary.

This country will be so damaged by the time another President takes over there will be no fixing it. Obama certainly doesn't work for the good of America.

F.Y.I. People, The Clintons[both] were the ones invited to the Bilderberg[one world order] group meeting along with many multi millionaires and billionaires and powerful people. Needless to say, "greed begats greed". Donald Trump was not invited nor did he attend, they are well aware that he stands for the best interest of America and that he stands in their way of globalization.

If ANY of you sheeple even had a clue about how the internet worked and the simple fact that it isn't owned or controlled by any single entity, you would all be dangerous.
