As usual, it looks like Congress didn’t do it’s job as Obama the Traitor will— give control of the internet’s addressing system to the United Nations’ on September 30 – after pledging it never would?
But Wait, There is HOPE:
“Republican attorneys general in four states are filing a lawsuit to block the transfer of Internet domain systems oversight from the US to an international governing body. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, and Nevada Attorney General Paul Laxalt filed a lawsuit on Sept 28 to stop the White House’s proposed transition of Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) functions.”
“The state officials cite constitutional concerns in their suit against the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, US government and the Department of Commerce. “The Obama Administration’s decision violates the Property Clause of the US Constitution by giving away government property without congressional authorization, the First Amendment to the US Constitution by chilling speech, and the Administrative Procedure Act by acting beyond statutory authority,” a statement released by Paxton’s office reads. The attorneys generals claim that the US government is ceding government property, pointing to a Government Accountability Office (GAO) review that “concluded that the transition does not involve a transfer of US government property requiring Congressional approval.” AG Paxton also echoed Sen Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) warnings that the transition could harm free speech on the Internet by giving Russia, China and Iran a voice on the international governing body that would oversee internet domain systems.”
““Trusting authoritarian regimes to ensure the continued freedom of the internet is lunacy,” AG Paxton said. “The president does not have the authority to simply give away America’s pioneering role in ensuring that the Internet remains a place where free expression can flourish.””

The complaint also cites security concerns about the U.S. relinquishing control of .mil and .gov domains.

In Case You didn’t Know It, the Internet as We Know It; Is Indeed In Serious Jeopardy!
The US ‘could give control of the internet’s addressing system to the United Nations’ on September 30 – after pledging it never would
- Private nonprofit Icann handles domain names for the government
- Until now, the government has retained veto power over management
- Commerce department said it would give control to a private organization
- Advocacy group says administration didn’t perform antitrust analysis
- Columnist says Icann has antitrust exemption due to governmental status
- Claims Icann is likely to seek UN leadership to retain antitrust exemption
“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 still has time to extend its ban on the Obama administration giving up protection of the internet. Icann has given it every reason to do so.”

We CAN Not Allow the U.N. (United Nations) to Take Control of the Inter Net!
Call Congress and Tell Them to WAKE UP!
As usual, Time is Running Out and Congress is Doing Nothing. They Must be Tired after Their Long Summer Recess. Unfortunately, to Add Insult to Injury— Our So Called U. S. Main-Stream Media; is Reporting— NOTHING? WHY? Please Help US—- DONALD
After a long summer break, Congress is back in session for one final burst of activity before Election Day. Lawmakers have until the end of the month to pass Zika funding and stave off a government shutdown.
Notice that the article mentions nothing about the Internet Give-Away to the U.N…
According to Lionel, in regards to his remark about Journalism and the Main-Stream-Media:
“They encourage intellectual torpor and ennui. Asking too many questions especially when you question the official story will get you labeled a conspiracy nut. Asking too few questions will win you high journalistic praise as caution and control are rewarded and heralded.”
They See NOTHING! They Report What They are Told to REPORT… But, IGNORANCE is Not an Excuse. DENIAL is a Matter of Convenience for Hillary. She is one Powerful Bitch.
