Hillary’s Criminal Plan for the Internet

You’re probably appalled at the American media’s shameless whoring for Hillary Clinton, asking yourself why they would so thoroughly debase their much-touted journalistic ethics. President Obama has answered that question.

As reported by Agence France Presse, during a recent speech in Pittsburgh he postulated:

“We are going to have to rebuild within this wild-wild-west-of-information flow some sort of curating function that people agree to.

“There has to be, I think, some sort of way in which we can sort through information that passes some basic truthiness tests and those that we have to discard, because they just don’t have any basis in anything that’s actually happening in the world.”

Set aside the outrageous, un-American gall in proposing that any central authority should “curate” information put out to the public, and walk with me for a minute down a meandering path of speculation.

It is, or course, the World Wide Web in which Obama’s informational “wild-wild west” exists. This is the realm of Breitbart, Cybercast News Service, the Drudge Report, World Net Daily, American Thinker, and other non-establishment outlets that persist in making the president uncomfortable.

And what has happened recently to affect the World Wide Web? The U.S. government has handed over control to ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers), the nonprofit agency that assigns website domain names.

Is it in the president’s mind that ICANN might someday assume the “curating function” he sees as necessary to insure “truthiness” in web-based news reporting?

Well, according to ICANN Board Chair Stephen D. Crocker, diverse membership in the organization makes such a thing unthinkable. Quoted by the tech site C/NET, Crocker said:

“This community validated the multistakeholder model of internet governance. It has shown that a governance model defined by the inclusion of all voices, including business, academics, technical experts, civil society, governments and many others is the best way to assure that the internet of tomorrow remains as free, open and accessible as the internet of today.”

His confidence is echoed by the Internet Governance Coalition, a group of technology firms that includes Facebook, Google, Microsoft, and Verizon, among others. They issued a statement that lauds ICANN’s “strong accountability measures” and upholds “the bottom-up approach that embodies the very nature of the open internet we experience today.…”

Pardon the skepticism to which I’ve become increasingly prone, but this sounds very much like the “collaborative” concept of governance that prevails in the academic world.

If you’ve ever applied for a position at a college or university, you know that what a search committee wants most urgently to know about you is whether you have a “collaborative style” of working.

What exactly is a “collaborative style,” as understood in today’s academic world? It means that you won’t do anything to contradict the orthodoxy in thought and procedure reigning on campus — in other words, that you are “politically correct” in your outlook.

    We need an unrestricted way to communicate separate from this! OR, it all needs to be destroyed!!!! We’ve gone too far with giving up our liberties as human beings, and now that that is done they want to control and influence our thoughts! What manner of psycho/sociopath wants this? I can only see where they want us as robots as well, those that “survive”!

    You are an Anti-Semite as Hillary Clinton espouses the Best Virtues of
    Judaism. She is the Best Qualified person for the Office of President of
    America plain and simple.

    Anyone who votes for Trump is an Anti-Semite and will not Inherit the
    Kingdom of Heaven as those that promote Hatred against Jews will not be
    allowed to enter Heaven but will go to Hell and be Boiled in their own
    excrement.

      No no no, stop your rhetoric. Boiled in your own excrement?? Shlomo, your BS was spoken around the 1700’s. Its 2016 now and you can cut the Anti semite crap as well. The only person messing with you, is you.

        I thought we can claim Libya as our home land if we claim we are Phoenicians? Judaism is a business model and a model for impunity.

    No worries. Most alternative media are exposing the lies anyways.

    TPTB must control the availability of information. Obama’s Wild West is a world without censorship. In the “Obama Nirvana”, if a city 300 miles away from you got hit by a bomb and the US government didn’t want you to hear it, would it make any noise?

    First went the open internet, then went the AR-15, then went the 401Ks and pensions, then went the false-flag that started the war, then went the patriots to the FEMA Camps, then went the borders, then went everybody somewhere else.

    Those were Hillary’s first 100 days.

    People have the right to gather intellectually and say what ever they want. We are smart enough to vet for ourselves as most trolls and liars are evident. The government should keep the fu*k out of our lives and maintain the infrastructure and a standing DEFENSIVE military as they are told to do in the constitution.
