Internet Giveaway Now!
Thursday, September 15 2016 @ 09:04 AM CDT

Wake up call my friends. No files to tag. Look out!
Quick look and see, before it is a fait accompli.
The debate over giving up your internet is nearly over.
You will remember where you were that day.
The globalists are about to get sovereign control of your internet.
Yer gonna get taxed based on yer usage. Content will be controlled.
Yes, bring on the "Daug is just an alarmist," rant. It's gonna be a fair tax right? And the content controls imposed by the one worlders will be fair too. "Because they are really the good guys!"
Passing drives and discs hand to hand will be outlawed? Sooner than later?

A search of the EFF site reveals little on the ICANN issue. ICANN is the single most important threat to the free internet. Interestingly, a Ms. Deutsch, a very powerful corporate lawyer, with a long history in the legal department of Verizon Corp. is on the board at EFF.
One of the most insidious aspects of modern life is the co-opting of dissent by corporate actors. I don't have any idea what EFF actually is, but it maybe such an instrument?
If they have little to say about the ICANN, perhaps this organization is not worth our time?
Best of luck with this lead my friends.

Here is a discussion of the ICANN issues by the failed 2016 presidential candidate Senator Ted Cruz. Best I could do. There is a BIG media black out on this issue. Wonder why?

http://www.politifact.com/texas/statements/2016/sep/14/ted-cruz/ted-cruz-incorrect-about-obama-giving-control-inte/

"Cruz said: "If Congress fails to act, the Obama administration intends to give away control of the internet to an international body akin to the United Nations."

"As of October 2016, the U.S. government is set to no longer have a contract to oversee certain internet-related duties having to do with all of us finding websites. The tasks will continue to be handled through a California nonprofit that’s been in place since 1998.

"Upshot: There’s no pending government handoff of control of the internet that we can see. Also, the member-countries of an advisory panel to the nonprofit’s board can only make a recommendation if every nation agrees; that’s not U.N.-like.

"We rate this statement False."

What?? Cruz made a false statement? There isn't a globalist conspiracy?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_governance

The above link will take ya to Wiki for background for the issues covered in this thread.

Sadly, Wiki is bald on the particulars of the ICANN issue, like the hairless EFF site linked above. Senator Cruz seems to provide the only passionate dissent visible, and sadly he's hard to watch 'aint he?

Here appears to be another issue where we simply wait for the truth to bite. You tired a that yet? Or maybe you got to keep your plan and your Doctor, or got one those shovel ready jobs...

Ms. Deutsch and her EFF looks more like an entity which is designed to co-op dissent. If this idea is new to you, the notion is that public dissent is channelled through actors, or, public entities which act as "buffers". Why? It is far easier for the Elite to maintain control when they are both the master and the public focus of dissent. It is possible to see this notion played out in every aspect of American life. Public Relations was not born in 1964, but it was institutionalized in that year...

Do not doubt my friends, despite what is available to read on the ICANN issue, this is about control. See Will Shakespeare on lawyers, any quotation will do...Wink
