Trying to figure out who really runs the Internet or owns it, is pretty much impossible. The Internet is delivered by thousands of companies to billions of people on the back of a world-spanning infrastructure. At best you could say that the Internet belongs to the United States, since that is where it originated, and that is where the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) resides.
IANA is a department with the Department of Commerce, and is responsible for allocating global IP addresses and managing the global Domain Name System. It’s probably the closest thing the Internet has to a central authority. However, it’s not going to be American for much longer.
In 2014 the Department of Commerce decided to give IANA away to international authorities, and since then IANA has been slowly transitioning out of the control of our government. Beginning on October 1st of this year, it will be under the full control of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), a non-profit corporation with representatives from 111 different countries.
The problem with this, is that the US government can’t hand over federal property without the approval of Congress, which they don’t have in this case. More importantly, opponents of this move fear that once the Internet is no longer under US control, oppressive countries like China will be able to exert more control over the Internet. They’ll be able to pressure US Internet companies to aid in censoring large swaths of the Internet.

I am heartbroken at the complete and total destruction of the US in only 7 short years. I honestly don’t know if there is any hope? I don’t even know what can be done as it appears everything is corrupted? I’m not even sure Donald Trump can bring it back. Everything of tangible relevance/value has been taken or given away from the US. Now all it has is it’s third world economy, the military, the Hollywood propaganda globalist machine and the militarized police forces to crush the soon to be desperate citizens. At it’s core it’s a deeply totalitarian and painful situation. What a horrifying and sad end to a great nation.
“the complete and total destruction of the US in only 7 short years.” – I hate Obama too but are you saying the Bush years were better?
“I’m not even sure Donald Trump can bring it back.” – The same Trump that robs his shareholders and can’t actually get a loan from a US bank anymore because his credit is so bad?
… and who has so far refused to release his tax returns.
Getting Trump’s taxes is meaningless. He funded his own primary run, and no one owns him.
All presidential candidates in history have had to make public their tax returns as a matter of transparency……
The IRS is holding Trump’s tax returns hostage to make him look bad. No reason they can’t expedite an audit for a Presidential candidate unless the current administration doesn’t want them to.
I’m heartbroken too, but Noam has a good point, it’s been a long time coming. Lots of big inflection points to bring us to our knees such as the Federal Reserve Act in 1913, engineered wars, assassination of JFK, 9/11, Patriot Acts, etc. We can still stand up if a lot more people get a clue, and soon! There’s no end to the learned helplessness conditioning going on. We’re far more powerful conscious beings than we’ve been brainwashed to believe.
Believe people! Blue is telling you the truth!
Thanks, Brett. Did you happen to see the “Soros Got Hacked, Can You Guess What We Found” New World Next Week podcast posted yesterday on A.P.? See what’s at the 4:59 time mark (blue579)? Well, at least someone is paying attention. 😉 Cheers, mate.
Trump will…” fix it and fix it fast….” quoted from the Donald at the Wings over the Rockies hanger circa a few weeks ago.
All things political move toward the finalization of THE BEAST SYSTEM and a One World Governing body overseen by a single individual: the anti-Christ.
We are in the prelude to those “end times”. There is no hope outside of Jesus and being protected by our heavenly Father. No president can save us, no laws can save us, no fancy weapons, supplies, and other trinket junk will save us. YOU CANNOT EVEN SAVE YOURSELF. It is wise to prepare, but at the end of the day, you need to know that everything goes according to God’s plans. (whether you like them or not!)
Once the Internet becomes CLOSED DOWN to all unapproved traffic, then the REAL deceptions and false narratives will begin to make you believe whatever they want you to believe, You will no longer have a choice between the “red pill” or “blue pill”. You will have one choice, the BLUE PILL, and you will wake up believing whatever it is they want you to believe because there will be no counter-narrative to it. Every “truther” out there you currently scoff, mock, and jeer at will disappear. You will not hear anything else that makes you uncomfortable with your skewed worldviews. Trolls will disappear because there will be just one voice and trolls that rail against the established narrative will have SWAT teams murder them at their keyboards. There will be no more Internet bullying because the NWO wants emotional babies to govern where appeals to emotion is good enough and appeals to reason are nonexistent. You will be able to PURCHASE things via Internet and pay your bills online, but past that, you will only receive info that has been vetted as SAFE by the powers that be. (those powers that be are all psychopathic Satanists)
I agree; except that I believe in the power of prayer, and that we should pray and put our trust in God. At the same time, we must be able to discriminate between what is true and what is false. We can pray for discernment, and we still have our conscience–unless we just accept whatever we are told.
Congress? What congress?
You mean the VACATIONERS?
petitions ? Please post if you see any
You know, after years of Bush and then Obama I could care less about Trump’s taxes!
We just need America fixed and since the politicians are always too busy re-running for congress
Or Senate so that they’ll eventually be able to affect change by gaining power as the years go by till eventually they “lose the meaning” and become more interested in making money for their retirement; so NOTHING ever gets done!
So why not Trump, aren’t we in a
Desperate situation? Yes! So I’m voting for the Non-politician who hates to lose!
And, maybe the American people will win, finally!
There is lots of conspiracy and there is lots of speculation and if the internet were trust worthy it would not mean a thing because you can disconnect it.I can live without it can you?
WHY was the Internet given away? WHY did America allow this anti-American, Muslim enemy of Freedom and LIberty give away the Internet to American enemies? WHY?
