    Next week the United Nations' International Telecommunications Union will meet in Dubai to figure out how to control the Internet. Representatives from 193 nations will attend the nearly two week long meeting, according to news reports.

    Will Rice blame the out of control Internet on Al Gore and then apologize that an American invented it?

    One week we (0bama) hand(s) control of our military over to the UN and make them answerable to a world court. Another week we let the UN destroy the 2nd amendment. And another week, American citizens will be required to pay a tax to the UN. Still anther week 0bama asserts the authority to turn over private industry and the internet to this international agency. Where is any of this in the constitution? And how long should we expect before the cattle cars start arriving... hmm?

    Aww, don't be so hard on Bammy!

    He's just trying to transform the Office of the President of the United States from the hardest job in the world, to the easiest!

    When the UN is finally 'the boss', he and all the other heads of state can organize into a union, and start striking for higher wages, longer vaca, etc.

    It'll be a worker's utopian paradise, worldwide and top to bottom!

    "Father of the internet" Vint Cerf claims the "free and open net is under threat"

    UN internet regulation treaty talks begin in Dubai

    Government regulators from 193 countries are in Dubai to revise a wide-ranging communications treaty.

    Google has warned the event threatened the "open internet", while the EU said the current system worked, adding: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

    But the agency said action was needed to ensure investment in infrastructure to help more people access the net.

    "The brutal truth is that the internet remains largely [the] rich world's privilege, " said Dr Hamadoun Toure, secretary-general of the UN's International Telecommunications Union, ahead of the meeting.

    "ITU wants to change that." >>>

    The EU's digital agenda commissioner, Neelie Kroes, has called into question why the treaty needs to refer to the net.

    "The internet works, it doesn't need to be regulated by ITR treaty," she tweeted.

    Vint Cerf - the computer scientist who co-designed some of the internet's core underlying protocols and who now acts as Google's chief internet evangelist - has been even more vocal, penning a series of op-ed columns.

    "A state-controlled system of regulation is not only unnecessary, it would almost invariably raise costs and prices and interfere with the rapid and organic growth of the internet we have seen since its commercial emergence in the 1990s," he wrote for CNN.

    Google itself has also run an "open internet" petition alongside the claim: "Only governments have a voice at the ITU... engineers, companies, and people that build and use the web have no vote."

    People should also be worried about our own government trying to get its hands into this. There are bills introduced every year right here that try to get the last vestige of pure freedom taken away.

    Global Governance Begins on December 14

    Knowing who controls the UN, it is not hard to see that a primary aim of the updated "treaty" will be to give credence to the regulation and monitoring of online activity in ways that are desirable to the (authoritarian) majority of member states. >>>

    This quiet UN takeover of the internet is the important first step in a new kind of occupation. The globalists, with the help of the re-elected Obama administration, are going to move forward quickly with their plans for what Al Gore and Herman van Rompuy call "global governance." A key part of this process is the reduction of the world's last defense against authoritarianism -- the United States of America -- to the status of just another mild-mannered vote at the UN. Enter Barack Obama, with his hyper-conciliation to the Muslim Brotherhood, his promise to Vladimir Putin to finish dismantling America's defenses after his re-election, and his remaking of a prosperous constitutional republic as an economically doomed leftist regulatory state.

    Just as hyper-regulation within a nation subverts representative government, by creating a panoply of bureaucratic directives that supervene upon changing electoral tides, so international hyper-regulation will have the effect of nullifying any transnational voice of unified dissent -- specifically, any voice speaking on behalf of the free exchange of ideas.

    The range of speech, both with regard to content and dissemination, will be curtailed by the ITU's proposed regulations. That will be the point of these regulations. They will help authoritarians preserve their power, prevent the oppressed from organizing from a distance, and restrict the much needed influx of moral support from abroad.

    Now, Mr. Obama, if you will just sign one more executive order, Agenda 21 in its entirety will become "the law of the land," and the forced migration may proceed -- gently at first, as we don't want to startle anyone. But don't worry, if the objections get too boisterous, we can always assert the national security provisions of the International Telecommunications Regulations to tamp things down a little. Those ITRs are proving very effective for normalizing conditions in China, Russia, and Iran. And your Department of Homeland Security has already anticipated this eventuality by introducing into its guidelines on domestic terrorism language identifying people who revere liberty as potential security threats.

    In any case, as November 6 proved, at least 140 million American adults can be effectively subdued by repeatedly chanting, "Don't run, we are your friends."

    The country has been on a downhill slide since 1861. The only change in the slant of the slope.

    Control the Internet?

    No. That's not what they want at all. They're playing games with your head. Listen:
    One idea is to apply the ITU's long-distance telephone rules to the Internet by creating a 'sender-party-pays' rule. International phone calls include a fee from the originating country........authoritarians are pushing the tax,.........
    They know they will never control it. What they want to do it tax it.

    No, they want to control it. The countries that are pushing this are Russia and China, which have seen massive dissent spread through a medium that they cannot control. China's economy is dependent on exports, but with global consumption down, they cannot maintain it, so they have to keep power by manipulating the Chinese people, and they cannot do that if the truth of their mismanagement of domestic policies comes out. Putin is running Russia like the KGB apparatchik that he is. He has banned all dissent and is using terror as a means of suppression, including the systematic murders of journalists and the jailing of rivals. The leadership of these countries cannot maintain control as long as information about their conduct threatens their power. The rest of the world's dictators would love to sign on, and make no mistake about it, the dictatorships outnumber the democrats. Throw in the various leftists in the democracies who see the internet as a threat to their hegemony, the various news outlets that have been constantly embarrassed by their failures to report news that has come out through alternative sources (Dan Rather would be all over this) and the Islamists who see this as a means to control dissent through the imposition of global laws against blasphemy and you have a perfect storm of totalitarian thought police banding together.

    The taxes are just the icing on the cake. They get to control what we read, and tax us for the privilege.
