Censorship Warning: Obama’s Internet Transfer Means Your Privacy, Anonymity and Free Speech Are Under Serious Threat

Obama’s campaign slogan in both elections was “Yes we can,” however, these past almost eight years have been marked by unilateral actions for virtually everything that he has forced on the United States and the American people. The NDAA, the signing onto the Climate Change accord during this recent UN conference, the directive for Kerry to sign the Small Arms Treaty…the list is almost endless. “Yes I can,” is the more appropriate slogan, and with the exclusion of the word “yes” and by adding a letter “N” we are seeing this slogan in the transfer of Internet control to ICANN.

This Los Angeles firm is a multinational corporation. “ICANN” stands for Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. It sounds Orwellian because it is, and China and Russia are large shareholders in this firm. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) opposes the transfer, and in a letter to the Commerce Department (the entity directed by Obama to initiate Internet transfer and relinquish U.S. control over it), he wrote this:

“The proposal will significantly increase the power of foreign governments over the Internet, expand ICANN’s historical core mission by creating a gateway to content regulation, and embolden leadership to act without any real accountability.”

On August 16, Rudy Takala penned a piece entitled America to Hand Off Internet Control in Under Two Months. Here is an excerpt from that piece that is worth keeping in mind regarding both censorship controls and loss of personal freedoms for Internet users:

“While those issues could, in theory, lead to a legal challenge being filed in the days following the transfer, the administration has expressed a desire to finish it before the president leaves office…”</strong>

This is very similar to the executive orders and actions Obama took to allow the flood of undocumented illegal aliens into the United States without fear of deportation from 2012 until this year when the courts ruled such actions illegal. The point: before it even came under court ruling, an uncountable number of illegal aliens surged across our borders and were given “immunity” by Obama. The same thing applies to this ICANN transfer within the language of Takala’s article: “…could, in theory, lead to a legal challenge being filed in the days following the transfer…”
