Stop Obama From Surrendering American Control of the Internet, Preserve Internet Freedom, [and help elect Donald Trump and other Reps]

“Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech.” Benjamin Franklin

On October 1, 2016, the Obama administration plans to surrender control of the Internet to an international consortium of #globalist “stakeholders” including Russia, China, Iran, and the 57 states of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation [OIC]. [The OIC pushed thru UN resolution 1618 to criminalize any criticism of Islam with Hillary Clinton’s support.]

Surrendering control of the Internet will probably lead to the UN controlling the Internet and will almost certainly lead to censoring the Internet.

Any promises to protect freedom of expression are as reliable as “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan.”

The only way to stop this and protect freedom of expression on the Internet is for the Reps to make nonnegotiable including a law preventing Obama from surrendering control of the Internet in the spending bill that must pass by the end of September.

September is now or never to save American control of the Internet and thereby freedom on the Internet.

******************************
The Power of Ideas vs. the Rulers

Invention of the printing press in 1439 “introduced the era of mass communication which permanently altered the structure of society. The relatively unrestricted circulation of information—including revolutionary ideas—transcended borders, captured the masses in the Reformation and threatened the power of political and religious authorities; the sharp increase in literacy broke the monopoly of the literate elite on education and learning and bolstered the emerging middle class.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johannes_Gutenberg

The ability to share information and ideas led to the greatest expansion of freedom, prosperity and technological and scientific progress in human history.

Dictators, kings and the #RulingClass have struggled ever since to control the flow of information and ideas.

The Internet is the printing press on mega steroids in the ability for people to communicate with large numbers of other people, quickly, inexpensively and outside government control and without large media and publishing companies.

Some countries try to censor the Internet in their own countries with varying success. China monitors its citizens Internet activity and gives them a social media score like a credit score measuring their political loyalty to the regime. [What do you suppose Obama thinks about that?]

Even in supposedly or formerly free Europe, the governments are pressuring social media companies to suppress criticism of Islam and the governments’ mass Muslim immigration policies. European governments are even criminally prosecuting people for criticizing Islam and/or mass Muslim immigration.

However, because America controls the Internet, they cannot censor the entire Internet.

In America, Facebook, Twitter and Google discriminatorily apply their “community standards” against conservative ideas they don’t like. They also “shadow ban” i.e. hide content they do not like. The Dems on the Federal Election Commission want to regulate political speech on the Internet. Dems and Reps passed the McCain-Feingold law to regulate political speech. This blatant violation of the First Amendment, narrowly struck down by the Supreme Court, would have, by way of example, made illegal showing Dinesh D’Souza’s movie #HillarysAmerica within 60 days of the election.

As always, the last thing “rulers” want is for their “subjects” to be able to communicate freely.

******************************
Background re: the Internet

Until now the US government controlled the key aspect of the Internet, the connection between typing www.SOMETHING.com and the website for SOMETHING, in essence the Internet directory.

Presently, the Internet directory is managed by a nonprofit corporation, ICANN, under contract with the US government. Because of US government control, it is subject to the First Amendment.

ICANN could take away anyone’s Internet domain thereby taking them off the Internet. However, as much as Obama and #Globalist Washington politicians would like to take down websites such as Drudge and Breitbart, they cannot because of the First Amendment and neither can ICANN.

******************************
Obama’s plan to surrender control over the Internet

On October 1, 2016, the Obama administration plans to surrender control of the Internet directory to an international consortium of #globalist “stakeholders” including Russia, China, Iran, and the 57 states of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation. You can see the full list here. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ICANN#Representatives It’s most of the United Nations.

That ends any First Amendment protection for the Internet, including for Americans.

There is then nothing to prevent the international consortium of #globalist “stakeholders” from suppressing and removing content they do not like or removing entire websites such as Breitbart or Drudge. Any promises to protect freedom of expression are as reliable as “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan.”

Furthermore, it is highly likely the UN will sooner or later control ICANN. The international consortium of #globalist “stakeholders” is already most of the UN.

By way of example, the OIC pushed thru UN resolution 1618 to criminalize any criticism of Islam with Hillary Clinton’s support. They will push for censoring the Internet of any criticism of Islam. Liberal and leftist politicians like Hillary Clinton, Obama and Merkel will be happy to go along.

They probably won’t take down Breitbart on October 2, but rather they will gradually tighten the noose around freedom of expression.

******************************
What can we do to protect freedom of expression on the Internet?

Even if Congress were to pass a law blocking the transfer, Obama would veto it, and Senate Dems will probably filibuster the bill.

The only chance to stop Obama from surrendering control of the Internet is attach the law preventing Obama from doing so to the spending bill Congress must pass by the end of September to keep the government operating.

The Reps must make this the one non negotiable provision of the spending bill. Even 40 Rep Senators could filibuster the spending bill without this law.

Members of Congress want to get the spending bill done as quickly as possible so they can campaign for reelection. We can use that time pressure.

A Breitbart poll shows 41% against surrendering control of the Internet and 14% in favor with 44% unsure. Once the issue is explained, this will be a 70-80% issue in favor of America keeping control of the Internet to protect freedom of expression.

Not only is this a chance for the Reps to do the right thing, this is a winning political strategy. Donald Trump and every Rep running for House or Senate have the chance to stand for America and for freedom when 70-80% of the people agree.

While the Reps control both houses of Congress, the law should permanently ban surrendering control of the Internet unless and until Congress authorizes it.

The law also must also provide an effective remedy including criminal penalties and standing to sue to prevent the Obama administration from surrendering control of the Internet notwithstanding the law. The 2016 spending bill barred the Obama administration from spending money to work on surrendering control of the Internet, and the Obama administration ignored the law.

Our task is to persuade the Reps to stand up for freedom. Some members get it. Others may not understand the issue or be afraid to make a stand. #Globalist Est Reps may want the UN to control the Internet to remove annoying conservative websites such as Breitbart and Drudge that interfere with their globalist, open border plans.

Please do the following:
**Write, call and talk to your member of Congress and Senators [some Dems might join the effort too].
**Alert everyone you can, in person, by email, and on line of this issue.
**Write letters to the editor.
**Comment on online articles on the subject.
**Tweet to @realDonaldTrump.
**[Keep repeating the above.]

September is now or never to protect American control of and freedom of expression on the Internet.

Great News, Brexit Wins!!!

Great News, Brexit Wins!!! published on

Brexit 01

GREAT NEWS, #BREXIT WINS!!!

This maters to freedom loving Americans who believe in self government because:

**Freedom and self government won!!!
**Globalism and open borders lost!!!
**Obama, Clinton, Soros, big business, big banks, MSM and the entire #RulingClass wanted Britain in the #EU, and they lost. 

This is great victory by the people against the corrupt, incompetent, “do as we say not was we do” #RulingClass that is making all of Western Civilization less free, less prosperous and less secure.

July 4 is America’s Independence Day.  Henceforth, June 23 will be Britain’s Independence Day.

#MakeAmericaGreatAgain #MakeBritainGreatAgain

******************************

I have long questioned the wisdom of creating the EU, another layer of expensive, growth inhibiting, freedom restricting government.

In addition, the EU is an example of the trend in America and Europe to put political power in the hands of government officials and institutions that are not answerable to the people at the ballot box.  The European Union is super, unelected regional government.

EU bureaucrats in Brussels can override the people’s elected representatives.  A key part of the EU is open borders and unlimited #Immigration.

The Trans Pacific Partnership that Obama, Paul Ryan and other American #RulingClass politicians favor creates a similar structure with unlimited “temporary” foreign workers.

******************************

Our Declaration of Independence states:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”

Because the EU does not answer to the people at the ballot box, it does not have the consent of the governed and hence does not have just powers.

In America as in the EU, the government that is supposed to defend and protect our rights and liberties has become the greatest threat to our rights and liberties.

The nation state, where the President and Congress or members of Parliament answer to the people has the best chance of protecting our rights and liberties.

******************************

Abraham Lincoln said in his Gettysburg address:

“That we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

Beyond any economic considerations, the Brexit campaign determined whether Britain’s men who gave their lives for Britain at Hastings, repelling Viking invaders, Agincourt, in the English Channel stopping the Spanish Armada, Trafalgar, Waterloo, the Somme, in the skies at the Battle of Britain, El Alamein, Arnhem, and so many more examples, “shall not have died in vain.”

Brexit was an important battle in determining whether, in Great Britain, Europe and America, there can be “a new birth of freedom” and whether “government of the people, by the people and for people” shall or shall not “perish from the earth.”

Thank you to the people of Britain for standing up for freedom and government of, by and for the people.

We’re up next.  America’s election is equally important in deciding we will succumb to #Globalism and open borders or whether America will remain a free, independent and sovereign country and whether “this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish.”

Who Can Best Lead the Revolution and Patriot Spring?

WHO CAN BEST LEAD THE REVOLUTION AND PATRIOT SPRING?

“A revolution,” Wikipedia says, “is a fundamental change in political power or organizational structures that take place in a relatively short period of time when the population rises up in revolt against the current authorities.”

Quoting Pat Caddell and others, I have argued this election is not about ideology, it is about insurgency against the corrupt, incompetent, “do as we say not as we do” Ruling Class that is making America less free, less prosperous and less secure.

Here is more confirmation in this article from Geert Wilders, a great Dutch Patriot and defender of Western Civilization, who lives under constant death threats from Muslims for speaking out against Islamization of Europe.  [Because of Islamist death threats, Geert Wilders sleeps in a different place every night.]  Geert Wilders also speaks out against the European Ruling Class that is undermining Western Civilization and his country. 
http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2016/01/26/the-patriot-spring/

Geert Wilders writes:

–“In Europe and America, revolutions are brewing. They are peaceful and democratic, but they are going to send the elites home that are running our nations into the ground.”

–“We are witnessing America’s struggle to be America, and the struggle of several European nations, among them the Netherlands, Britain, France, Germany and many others to preserve their identity and liberty, to remain the Netherlands, Britain, France, Germany. Everywhere, patriots are on the march. We are living the Patriot Spring.”

Who can best lead the revolution and Patriot Spring in America?

Who is already breaking up the existing political structure and changing the dynamics of politics in America?

The full quote is even better.

“In my own native state of Massachusetts, the battle for American freedom was begun by the thousands of farmers and tradesmen who made up the Minute Men — citizens who were ready to defend their liberty at a moment’s notice. Today we need a nation of minute men; citizens who are not only prepared to take up arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as a basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom. The cause of liberty, the cause of America, cannot succeed with any lesser effort.”

The Free Enterprise System, Morality, Prosperity, Fairness and Happiness

Milton Friedman delivers the Gettysburg address in brevity and clarity why the free enterprise system, “capitalism” which I do not like because it is an inaccurate Marxist term, is the best economic system yet devised for providing the most prosperity to the most people in 2 minutes 23 seconds.

 

Arthur Brooks explains why the free enterprise system is also the most moral and fair economic system and the economic system best for producing the most happiness for the most people because it provides for earned success.
