The unthinkable – an internet controlled and operated by the United Nations.
If the U.N. INTERNET TAKE OVER happens it could change the Internet and our world as we know it. When Obama was president, he announced publicly the plan to give up U.S. protection of the internet – he also promised the United Nations would never take control. But if the U.S. gives up internet protections, the likely result could be the U.N. taking control of the internet under the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) on September 30.
What would the implications be of a takeover of the World Wide Web by the United Nations under ICANN?
Censorship galore. Think communist China – so called “conspiracy theories” and unfavorable opinions would cease to exist. Calling George Soros an evil bastard would not be possible.
Indeed, with all the funding Soros gives to “globalism” to destabilize countries in favor of international governing rackets, the U.N. would certainly protect their sugar daddy the way CNN protects Hillary Clinton.
Speaking of Soros, he has his ugly crinkly hands all over this issue – a leaked document by DCLeaks shows that Soros’s Open Society Foundation called for regulating the internet to favor it’s supporters. Maybe the “Open Society Foundation” should change it’s name to the Censored Society Foundation because such a proposal is ludicrous.
From the Daily Caller –
An internal proposed strategy from George Soros’s Open Society Justice Initiative calls for international regulation of private actors’ decisions on “what information is taken off the Internet and what may remain.” Those regulations, the document notes, should favor “those most supportive of open society.”
“Our freedom of expression work furthers the free exchange of information and ideas via the media and internet, and proposes to begin to address the free expression and association rights of NGOs. The internet has been a key tool for promoting freedom of expression and open societies — as in the Arab Spring — and is a potential safeguard against monopoly control of information in such places as China and Central Asia”
“But it is also presenting underaddressed challenges, including lack of regulation of private operators that are able to decide, without due process procedures, what information is taken off the Internet and what may remain. A ‘race to the bottom’ results from the agendas of undemocratic governments that seek to impose their hostility to free speech on the general online environment. We seek to ensure that, from among the norms emerging in different parts of the world, those most supportive of open society gain sway.”

Without the U.S. contract allowing ICANN to keep it’s anti-trust exemption, ICANN would seek to be overseen by another government group.
Already, authoritarian regimes have proposed that ICANN become another arm of the U.N. to make it easier for these regimes to censor the internet globally.
There is still some time for Congress and We The People to come together and fight back – demand our legislators vote and prevent the Obama administration from giving up protection of the internet.
