Why Control of the Internet is Being Turned Over to the United Nations.

Even the right wing media misses the real point. I will point out the real issues and facts. By the way, it is not actually being turned over to the U.N.

Breitbart - FCC Commissioner on Internet Oversight Switch: ‘If You Cherish Free Expression,’ ‘You Should Be Worried,’ This Is ‘Irreversible’.  So an FCC commissioner doesn't want to see control of the internet given to ICANN because it has members from foreign countries. What nonsense.

Yahoo - Internet caretaker ICANN to escape US control

When I began this blog I wrote about ICANN. When I began this blog one of the groups that worked form me was a systems group and I used to ask every new employee if they knew who owned the internet and not one of them ever knew or had heard of ICANN. They would instead tell me nobody owned the internet and look at me as if I were stupid. I would then tell them that the United States government owned the internet and they would not believe me. Guess what, the United States government still owns the internet. The federal government created the internet (ARPnet originally) and owns the parts that make it work. The same is true for GPS by the way, it uses 3 satellites all owned by the military.

If you in any way wish to understand the world you should understand who owns the internet. ICANN does NOT own the internet. ICANN controls the internet because it has a contract with the federal government to do so. Without the contract from the government ICANN has NO right to do anything. It doesn't even have the right to assign domain names, it's number one job.

Here is the real issue for the establishment. The first amendment applies to the federal government, ICANN only has a say over the internet because they are given that right by the government. This means that the internet must follow the rules set forth by the federal government and the government must follow the constitution.

The two biggest issues the establishment is interested in are controlling what is said over the internet and forcing everyone to have a unique public identification that uses the internet. Some seem to believe that by turning over the internet to ICANN it can then be purchased by other countries or more likely American companies who will then profit from this public infrastructure that was created by your tax dollars.

The FCC wants to keep control over the internet; but, it does not control the internet. That is a power grab. Investors want to control the internet because they could charge lots of money and force you to follow their rules or pay them a fee for using the internet. The questions about who controls the internet are about money and power and the government wants to turn those things over to others rather than keep it under the control of the federal government because you can vote to change what the government does.

Media Bias for Fun and Profit.

Yahoo - CNBC - Secret Service pays $1.6 million to Trump to protect him: Politico.  Read the article and experience the bias. Hillary Clinton rents the plane she travels on and the federal government pays for the Secret Service to be on that plane. So far the federal government has spent $2.6 million for the Secret Service to protect her. Trump owns his plane and the Secret Service has only spent $1.6 million to protect him. Yet, the one who is attacked is Trump.

YouTube - Primetime Live - Hillary Clinton Jan. 30 1992 Primetime live Bill Clinton and Gennifer Flowers infidelity.  This is Hillary in her own words back in 1992. She refers to one of the women who it turns out did have a 12 year affair as a liar and dishonest. She should be asked what she thinks of Bill Cosby. I bet she would vilify him; but, Bill Clinton is held to a different level as is she. Heck, she called Bill Clinton's mistresses bimbos and now complains that Trump called Rosie O'Donnell names.

The Washington Post - Dear readers: Please stop calling us ‘the media.’ There is no such thing.  Here is a quote from the article, "As I understand your use of this term, “the media” is essentially shorthand for anything you read, saw or heard today that you disagreed with or didn’t like. At any given moment, “the media” is biased against your candidate, your issue, your very way of life." Lets start with the obvious, "The media" refers to mass publication of any type. You have the written media, visual media and audio media. The fact that all of the news media is owned by six companies means we should probably refer to it as the corporate owned, oligarchic media.

MSN - Investor Place - Why would Disney even want Twitter?  Yes, Disney (one of the six corporations that owns 90% of the media in America) wants to buy Twitter and investors cannot figure out why. The answer is simple, to control what you read and hear.

Washington Post - U.S. owes black people reparations for a history of ‘racial terrorism,’ says U.N. panel.  Hey, maybe they will make England pay the Irish for starving 25% of us to death or This is just silly and everybody knows it, it is meant to create racial problems and separate people. Divide and conquer is still the approach, always has been and always will be.

Independent - World’s first baby born with controversial new ‘three-parent’ technique.  Actually I wrote a few years ago about how there were over 150 babies with three parents using a very similar technique. The new technique is not controversial, the fact that it is done at all is what is controversial.

The Washington Post - Enabler or family defender? How Hillary Clinton responded to husband’s accusers.  The question is not about how Hillary may have tried to work things out with Bill, it is about how she treated and what she said about the women. Personally, I blame my wife for her adultery, she owed me better and took an oath. The men she slept with were just slime; but, broke no promises to me, same goes for the Clintons.
