U.S. to relinquish remaining control over the Internet
« on: March 15, 2014, 12:38:08 PM »
U.S. officials announced plans Friday to relinquish federal government control over the administration of the Internet, a move that pleased international critics but alarmed some business leaders and others who rely on the smooth functioning of the Web.

Quote
U.S. officials said their decision had nothing to do with the NSA spying revelations {-- insert eyeroll --} and the worldwide controversy they sparked, saying there had been plans since ICANN’s creation in 1998 to eventually migrate it to international control.

Well.  Just ....... stellar.  What could go wrong.

Hey American taxpayer, you built it, you paid for it, now let foreigners dictate how you use it. Same with the Panama Canal.

Well, the Obama Regime announced a date-certain: 10/1/16.

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/america-to-hand-off-internet-in-under-two-months/article/2599521

Would give people the option of stifling public discourse the final month of the POTUS campaign, eh?

Nice point on Obama ignoring Federal Law regarding taxpayer funds to execute this surrender of something we built with OUR money to a bunch of UN faggots who cannot wait to fvck us all over!  But when has this illigitimate regime ever cared about even the spirit of a law?  A law is what they say it is...and so far nobody has stopped them, so...

Get ready for the internet to hit the turd-world fan!

Oh, and nice job Cyber Command, you put up a heck of a fight...and sadly it was probably a better effort than this Ryan/McConnell led Pubbie Congress put up!
