Meet the New Authoritarian Masters of the Internet

by JOHN HAYWARD | Breitbart  |  published on September 30, 2016

President Barack Obama’s drive to hand off control of Internet domains to a foreign multi-national operation will give some very unpleasant regimes equal say over the future of online speech and commerce.

In fact, they are likely to have much more influence than America, because they will collectively push hard for a more tightly controlled Internet, and they are known for aggressively using political and economic pressure to get what they want.

Here’s a look at some of the regimes that will begin shaping the future of the Internet in just a few days, if President Obama gets his way.

China

China wrote the book on authoritarian control of online speech. The legendary “Great Firewall of China” prevents citizens of the communist state from accessing global content the Politburo disapproves of. Chinese technology companies are required by law to provide the regime with backdoor access to just about everything.

    Bye Bye Internet freedom of speech.

  • Glenda Jordan

    This should not be taken lightly! This is another of barryo’s unconstitutional policies that undermines U.S. power and influence in the world. His plan to relinquish our remaining oversight of the internet by turning ICANN over to world leaders is another step in the NWO direction. These leaders are enemies of our liberty….our nation and oppose our freedom of speech and press. Once relinquished its gone and can’t be taken back (for anyone assuming Trump will get back and undue this). barry will do any and all things he possibly can to destroy this country….another step toward his “fundamental change” for America.

    Vote for Hillary is a vote for World order. Vote for Trump is a vote for America.

  • jug

    Why TF hasnt congress put a stop to this?

  • Rick Stanley

    Obama attacks our national security, not to mention our freedom and liberty of communication.

  • Askjrsk

    Obama is working for globalism. America third world country controlled by China. He is not smart. He’s a figure head. That’s why he’s always in that expensive jet and away playing golf with no concern in the world. Obama is comfortably sheltered away from real people real problems. Hillary is dying for this . She can hide and jet that great big carbon footprint in make crazy smug appearance photo op goofy statement and go hide get stoned. Another Obama. Clinton machinery does all the work.

    • Fern R Kurland

      Askjrsk – that’s it in a nutshell.

      • Askjrsk

        One DOSENT have to be a rocket scientist to figure these bozzos out
        Vote Trump

        • Fern R Kurland

          Unfortunately there are many people I know who really do not want to investigate why they should not vote for Hillary. Very frustrating.

  • oat21

    Incredible that Obama is allowed to get away with this, again his legacy of hurting our country and freedoms!!!! I’ll never understand why he was never impeached for going against our Constitution.

    • Teapartier

      Because our congress is as bad as he is. They agree with him on all as GIVING Iran 1.7 billion dollars, the internet(why not just give GM to the Japanese), and our sovereignty to,the UN. He has taken us to third world status as he said he would and congress is compliant.

      • oat21

        Agreed, a bunch of pussies.

    My guess without U.S. oversight there will be new regulations on using certain words or talking about certain subjects. My friend with a technology degree says don’t worry won’t change things but I don’t know.

    • bobnstuff

      My friends at CMU say the same and I trust them more then any media on the subject. All that is happening is the people who assign names are changing.

      • Tiger

        Well suppose we will see.

    • used_to_be_a_liberal

      All ready on some topics, where I have said George Soros was a Nazi Collaborator, which is true, my comment was held for moderation, then disappeared, this has happened every time on Newsmax, Granted, this could just be Newsmax, and maybe it is, so it is a wait and see thing.
      I hope Trump after he is elected to the presidency, takes our “stuff” back, and I really don’t care how he does it, or who gets hurt.

      • reggie

        They are all censoring anything that they don’t agree with. It’s been increasing a lot in the last month or so. Heil, utbal.

      • Tiger

        Me also on WND and Frontpage and others all the time. Going to get worse I fear.

        Best sentence yet: “I hope Trump after he is elected to the presidency, takes our “stuff” back, and I really don’t care how he does it, or who gets hurt.”

        That is the Spirit but he better stop with the personal problems and keep on with his speeches and transfer all that to the next debate.

        • used_to_be_a_liberal

          True, I know that these things need to be brought out into the open, I just hope he does it a little more polished, that doesn’t mean hold anything back, just be harder hitting with stronger precise language, and to the point.

          • Tiger

            Sadly he does in his rallies but he sure lost it in this debate. But when anyone Ben Franklin’s this Hellary in one column and Trump in the other, he comes out on top in what we need. Security, Jobs, a Fence and rid of illegals and refugees.

          • used_to_be_a_liberal

            True, and it does seem to come down to this;
            The following was written by some-one else on another site.

            Trump: Were Going to Build a Wall!
            Clinton: Open Borders!

            Trump: Deport Illegals!
            Clinton: Amnesty Now!

            Trump: Get Our Jobs Back!
            Clinton: Protect NAFTA!

            Trump: Stop Illegal Immigration!
            Clinton: 500% More Radical Islamists!

            Trump: Reduce the Citizens Tax Burden!
            Clinton: Raise Taxes Across the Board!

            Trump: Decent Health Care!
            Clinton: Obamacare Forever!

            Trump: Take Care of Our Veterans!
            Clinton: Bonuses for Corrupt VA Bureaucrats!

            Trump: Uphold the 2nd Amendment!
            Clinton: Regulate the 2nd Amendment!, and Disarm All Law-Abiding Citizens!!

            Trump: Control Our Trade Agreements!
            Clinton: Pass TPP Now!

            Trump: Jobs, Jobs, Jobs!
            Clinton: Taxes, Taxes, Taxes!

            Trump: Prosecute and Jail Hillary Clinton!
            Clinton: Noooooooooooooooo!

            Trump: Make America Great Again!
            Clinton: Make ME great again!

          • Tiger

            Exactly and here is an excerpt from the law that allows Trump’s DOJ to get rid of mosques and Muslims along with their training camps and organizations. I learned of this watching the congressional hearings.
            The law prohibits entry of “Aliens who the consular officer or the
            Attorney General knows or has reason to believe seek to enter the United
            States solely, principally, or incidentally to engage in activities
            which would be prejudicial to the public interest, or endanger the
            welfare, safety, or security of the United States.” It also prohibits
            the entry of Aliens who are members of or affiliated with any
            organization that advocates or teaches, the overthrow by force,
            violence, or other unconstitutional means of the US or of all forms of
            law, and Aliens who publish, circulate and distribute materials teaching
            or advocating the overthrow by force, violence or other
            unconstitutional means of the US Government or of all forms of law.

            Hope he uses it, and thanks for the info.

          • Tiger

            Welcome it is still in affect.

          • Tiger
          • Elaine

            Thanks for this link, Tiger. It’s a good one to have on hand !!

          • Tiger

            It is important that the American people know YES TRUMP CAN and MUST get Muslims out of our country and fast. Europe awake doing it. Americans better wake. We have planes, ships that transport thousands and they can put all the Somali, Afghani, Burmese, Tunisian, Iraqi etc single man in our 800 Detention Centers via O via H.R.645. Then out they go.

            This law also closes down the mosques, the organizations and the training camps in our country that obviously and in our face preach our takeover. Our representatives were not stupid, they recognized the need to rid us of bad and these people rotten to the core.

          • Elaine

            Right you are, as always! I am going to do my best to spread this around at every opportunity. This is THE most important election EVER in our history.

          • Tiger

            Thank you Elaine so many of our laws are disregarded and have been for years but they are on the books, rightfully so. We must secure our country. We must drop not drop this ball.

          • Tiger
          • Elaine

            This is pure gold.

          • Tiger
          • Elaine

            Who’s the naive Pollyanna hearts-and-unicorns bimbo at the end there? Wow. Apparently, she hasn’t seen what’s going on right under her nose. I’ll bet she believes it would be oh-so-enlightened and progressive to “build a bridge, not a wall”.

          • Tiger

            Elaine they are either insane or haven’t a clue and believe in some fairy tale told them in schools. Reality is that these people are savages.

            And as the flames climbed high into the night
            To light the sacrificial rite
            I saw Satan laughing with delight
            The day the music died
            He was singin’
            Bye, bye Miss American Pie …

          • Tiger

            Yepper.

          • Tiger
          • Elaine

            This is what Obama would like to see from the balcony of his ivory tower.

          • Tiger

            He and his evil men of intent and women have laid out the plans carefully and indeed why would an American President, who has been advised by all agencies along with Congress on the dangers inherent in these refugees, insist upon bringing them in by the hundreds of thousands.

            How many attacks since he has been in office? Too many and we know who they are, where they are, their organizations, their mosques that preach Jihad, the training camps and yet do nothing.

          • Elaine

            Pray to God daily in Jesus’ name .. and hope He hears us. Our earthly “leaders” certainly don’t hear us, and we know they don’t pray to God.

          • Tiger

            We do. Daily several times. While I walk, when at the dinner table etc.

          • Elaine

            Amen. I knew you do …. =))

          • Tiger

            Someone sent this to me. Never knew existed. JFK speech warning us about the pending One World Order begging the media to help him get the word out.

            OMG.

          • Tiger

            Pretty awful for sure.

          • Elaine

            Hillary was NEVER great !! ….. =))

          • used_to_be_a_liberal

            lol. you are correct.

          • msmotown

            Hillary is not only a seasoned debater, there is a lot of talk about her knowing the questions a week ahead. Also Trump’s microphone was messed with. Some are even saying that she was giving hand signals to Lester. The huge problem is the moderator. Why do we always get these left winged nuts or Megan Kelly, who might as well be a liberal.

          • Tiger

            I don’t know and they said not this time but they did it anyway. Should have gone with Lou Dobbs, Varney and other good guys.

          • Elaine

            Check out “riggeddebate dot com”. It shows every signal Hillary made to Holt in a way that makes it blatantly obvious. It’s a good video, and I was convinced she (they) cheated. Also, see on YouTube “Podium Gate” … which shows Hillary’s henchmen removing “things” from her podium after the debate … folders, electronic things, etc.

      • Janie Fultz-Reinhart

        YES FOR TRUMP.. OBAMA HAS DONE SO MUCH HARM TO AMERICA. I NEVER UNDERSTOOD WHY MOST ALL OF THE STARS IN HOLLYWOOD, FOR THIS WORTHLESS PIECE OF SKIN AND BONE

        • msmotown

          They live in a fantasy world and most have horrible lifestyles that can be placated by the liberal agenda.

  • bobnstuff

    Has anyone one noticed that the tech world isn’t screaming about this change. Maybe it’s because they understand what’s happening and how the internet works. ICANN isn’t the US government, they only work for it and they had way to much power. All they did was write the phone book for the internet since no one really controls the net. Also we have known this was happening for years and you will notice congress didn’t find it important enough to do anything about it. So lets all get excited over something that isn’t worth our time. http://computer.howstuffworks.com/internet/basics/who-owns-internet.htm

    • Allan Scott

      Ya gotta point there and I hope you’re right!

      • Elaine

        Even after reading that article, I still get the feeling that these governments can and will stick their fingers into this pie if given the opportunity. Never underestimate the collective power of communist governments. That’s what makes (or used to make) America so great … that we have more individual liberties than any country in the world. They are slipping away.

  • SecondtheFirst

    Now more than ever we must unite and fight back.

  • Douglas B Briggman

    Wait, here comes 1930’s Germany and Stalinist USSR, look for the Concentration camps and the Gulags, Oh OK we have “benine” FEMA camps,,,,,,right!

    • used_to_be_a_liberal

      only id the Hilda-Beast wins

  • Marine Moe

    Idc what people say. He’s not American.

  • Dan

    What is wrong with this creature in the White House? Apparently still apologizing for American exceptionalism. Why is this happening and for what reason? I guess it’s plain and simple “Follow the Money”…

    • msmotown

      This has come at a time where most people were catching on to the corruption and propaganda of the news media on tv. They began to listen to radio and unfiltered news online. I guess Soros and all the globalists can’t tolerate our getting the truth. This is getting really dangerous.
