UN Could Take Control of Internet

The United Nations is likely to take control of the internet if the United States gives up its stewardship, according to The Wall Street Journal columnist L. Gordon Crovitz.

Crovitz, who is a media adviser and former publisher of The Wall Street Journal, says the U.N. would take control because of the Obama administration's "naivete or arrogance."

He based his theory that the U.S. would hand over control to the U.N. based on an inquiry by Americans for Limited Government, an advocacy group that sent a Freedom of Information Act request about the future of the internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), but the request came back saying "there were no records in relation to the request."

Which means the Obama administration has no plan on how to allow ICANN to keep its antitrust exemption, which allows it to be a "legal monopolist," Crovitz said.

The U.S. Department of Commerce has been responsible for managing the internet, and subcontracted the job to the private nonprofit ICANN, according to The Daily Mail.

Without the U.S. contract, ICANN would look for another governmental group to control it, so it can retain that exemption. Crovitz writes that authoritarian regimes want ICANN to become part of the U.N., so that they can more easily censor it.

This is the move to silence the critics on the right. Hillary has already indicated that Breitbart should be shutdown. Wonder if they will shutdown Wikileaks? If they close Salisbury News, it will only confirm that Joe A. has been on the right side all along!

They want to censure freedom of speech. Easier to put the blame on the EU than blaming our government. They want to have total control of the media and put down dissent. Just like Germany in the 1930's or the Soviet Union! Remember the new catch phrase: If you see something, hear something, report it!!! They are now monitoring your internet browsing habits, Phone, and purchasing. Orwell and Huxley warned about this!!!
