Obama Admin to Give Control of Internet to…We Don’t Know

On Friday, U.S. officials announced that they intend to relinquish control of the internet to the international community, but failed to specify who, or what, would maintain oversight of the internet’s administration.

It all sounds very complicated, but the reality is that the U.S. maintains control over web addresses and domain names that keeps the internet running smoothly for the entire world. Bowing to ceaseless political pressures mounting over the past decade, the U.S. is planning on relinquishing control of the internet within the next year.

Right now, the U.S. Commerce Department and the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, a California-based non-profit group that goes by the acronym ICANN, cooperate with a contract and ICANN serves as “keyholders” for the internet.

According to Lawrence E. Strickling, assistant secretary of commerce for communications and information, “We look forward to ICANN convening stakeholders across the global Internet community to craft an appropriate transition plan.”

Though details are unclear at this time regarding the final details of the new plan, the move reeks of political motivations and is likely to serve as an appeasement to those who favor globalist viewpoints.

Perhaps most concerning is the uncertainty of who will administer the internet. While the U.S. has been largely criticized by other countries for maintaining control of it, the U.S. has been a stable steward of such a responsibility. Ceding that responsibility to other nations that might include China or other nations without a strong background in the upholding of individual rights might be a long-term threat to the accessibility of the World Wide Web.

Hating Jesus: The American Left's War on Christianity

Matt Barber with Paul Hair

The secular left doesn’t merely have a disagreement with Christianity. These are not people with whom one may reason, compromise or even disagree. They are dedicated to evil. They demand nothing less than the abolition of the biblical worldview, and the destruction of Christ’s followers right along with it.

Now is the time to fight back. If you are someone, Christian or not, who refuses to see Christianity wiped out (like it ever could be) and your children indoctrinated into pure evil, then sitting on the sidelines is no longer an option.
