Internet shut down is here! US to cede control of ICANN
« on: September 26, 2009, 12:24:44 PM »
The US government has reportedly agreed to cede control over ICANN once its current pact with the internet oversight body expires next week.

ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) is a California-based non-profit that oversees the internet's address system. It currently operates under the auspices of the Joint Project Agreement with the US government, due to end September 30, 2009.

The Economist reports a new "affirmations of commitments" has been struck in place of the JPA that gives ICANN autonomy to manage its own affairs. The agreement allegedly extends indefinitely and is set to go into effect the day before the JPA expires.

The new deal also reportedly sets up "oversight panels" composed of representatives of foreign governments, which will conduct regular reviews of ICANN in four areas: competition among generic domains (.com, .net. .org, etc); the handling of data on registrants; network security and transparency; and accountability to public interests. The US will only retain a permanent seat in the latter, The Economist reports.

The panels would reportedly have no real authority over ICANN, however, and failing to follow their recommendations bares no penalties. It's not clear by the report which governments would be represented on the panels or how the countries being represented would be determined.

ICANN would also still require permission before making any major changes to internet operations under a separate agreement with the US government that expires in 2011.

When asked for comment, both ICANN and the US agency overseeing ICANN said negations are still ongoing and refused to confirm or deny the report.

US influence over ICANN has been a strong point of contention for many other countries. This June, the EU called on the US to relinquish control of ICANN when its contract expires in favor of "multilateral accountability."

Now it will be joint control like the Nwo and their ponzi scheme of sharing. This is big news considering it was only US control and no foreign government could tell us what to do. They say the panels wont have authority and their full of crap cause we know how they all work together...  ::)

The cover story and real truth are always different these days. It's hard to believe anything read or heard anymore. It's just censorship, deception and lies. Is it just me or is everything the us govt does seem to indicate that they are planning to dissolve/destroy the USA themselves, create chaos, jail millions of political opponents and declare themselves as a new fascist military empire and get the NWO Armageddon started? "You are either with us or against us", I believe is the phrase. I realize this is the worst case scenario, but it's not like that never happened before in human history and it does have all the same coincidences. The military will take over the internet (like it has not already)here and let someone else be bothered with ICANN paperwork.

US 'to loosen' grip on internet

The US government is expected to relax control over how the internet is run when it signs an accord with net regulator Icann on Wednesday.

The "affirmation of commitments" will reportedly give Icann autonomy to run its own affairs for the first time.

Previous agreements gave the US close oversight of Icann - drawing criticism from other countries.

Earlier this year, the EU called on the US to relinquish its control and Icann to become "universally accountable".

"The US government is the only body to have had formal oversight of Icann's policies and activities since its inception in 1998," it said.

"The Commission believes that Icann should become universally accountable, not just to one government but to the global internet community.

"This is particularly relevant given that the next billion of internet users will mainly come from the developing world."

Keep a close eye on this cause I expect changes are going to be made soon enough.

They're using this under the pretense that America has 'too much power' over ICANN and that the authority regulating the Internet should NOT give one country too much vested power.

That's a really slick con - I'm sure a lot of Eurosuckers will fall for that spiel. In reality, it's just a cover for getting a C2 (Command & Control) system in to shut down sites whichever way they deem fit - perhaps even an international 'firewall' with specific filters for each country.

So.. the GiG (Global Information Grid) requires its new regulatory agency that will regulate the Internet - the Internet is seen as a battleground, and a battleground needs a 'command and control' system, just like you do in a war. This con must be exposed to the general public.

We need to simplify this to the point that the average Joe will get why they don't want anything to do with the whole 'net neutrality' debate - because, GET THIS - 'net neutrality' by itself sets you up for a fall - because by acknowledging we need 'net neutrality', you're falling into a 'Don't throw me in the Briar patch'. Perhaps I need to flesh this out - but I'll hope you get this.

That's a really slick con - I'm sure a lot of Eurosuckers will fall for that. In reality, it's just a cover for rolling out more IPv4-to-IPv6 transformers, getting an Agile C2 (Command & Control) system in to shut down sites whichever way they deem fit - perhaps even an international 'firewall' with specific filters for each country.

Yep you got it and I sure hope some people read Anti_Illuminati post on internet2 cause their is a load of good information in there.

US cedes control of net governance

. This document constitutes an Affirmation of Commitments (Affirmation) by the United States Department of Commerce ("DOC") and the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers ("ICANN"), a not-for-profit corporation. In recognition of the conclusion of the Joint Project Agreement and to institutionalize and memorialize the technical coordination of the Internet's domain name and addressing system (DNS)1, globally by a private sector led organization, the parties agree as follows:

2. The Internet is a transformative technology that will continue to empower people around the globe, spur innovation, facilitate trade and commerce, and enable the free and unfettered flow of information. One of the elements of the Internet's success is a highly decentralized network that enables and encourages decision-making at a local level. Notwithstanding this decentralization, global technical coordination of the Internet's underlying infrastructure - the DNS - is required to ensure interoperability.

3. This document affirms key commitments by DOC and ICANN, including commitments to: (a) ensure that decisions made related to the global technical coordination of the DNS are made in the public interest and are accountable and transparent; (b) preserve the security, stability and resiliency of the DNS; (c) promote competition, consumer trust, and consumer choice in the DNS marketplace; and (d) facilitate international participation in DNS technical coordination.

4. DOC affirms its commitment to a multi-stakeholder, private sector led, bottom-up policy development model for DNS technical coordination that acts for the benefit of global Internet users. A private coordinating process, the outcomes of which reflect the public interest, is best able to flexibly meet the changing needs of the Internet and of Internet users. ICANN and DOC recognize that there is a group of participants that engage in ICANN's processes to a greater extent than Internet users generally. To ensure that its decisions are in the public interest, and not just the interests of a particular set of stakeholders, ICANN commits to perform and publish analyses of the positive and negative effects of its decisions on the public, including any financial impact on the public, and the positive or negative impact (if any) on the systemic security, stability and resiliency of the DNS.

5. DOC recognizes the importance of global Internet users being able to use the Internet in their local languages and character sets, and endorses the rapid introduction of internationalized country code top level domain names (ccTLDs), provided related security, stability and resiliency issues are first addressed. Nothing in this document is an expression of support by DOC of any specific plan or proposal for the implementation of new generic top level domain names (gTLDs) or is an expression by DOC of a view that the potential consumer benefits of new gTLDs outweigh the potential costs.

6. DOC also affirms the United States Government's commitment to ongoing participation in ICANN's Governmental Advisory Committee (GAC). DOC recognizes the important role of the GAC with respect to ICANN decision-making and execution of tasks and of the effective consideration by ICANN of GAC input on the public policy aspects of the technical coordination of the Internet DNS.

7. ICANN commits to adhere to transparent and accountable budgeting processes, fact-based policy development, cross-community deliberations, and responsive consultation procedures that provide detailed explanations of the basis for decisions, including how comments have influenced the development of policy consideration, and to publish each year an annual report that sets out ICANN's progress against ICANN's bylaws, responsibilities, and strategic and operating plans. In addition, ICANN commits to provide a thorough and reasoned explanation of decisions taken, the rationale thereof and the sources of data and information on which ICANN relied.

8. ICANN affirms its commitments to: (a) maintain the capacity and ability to coordinate the Internet DNS at the overall level and to work for the maintenance of a single, interoperable Internet; (b) remain a not for profit corporation, headquartered in the United States of America with offices around the world to meet the needs of a global community; and (c) to operate as a multi-stakeholder, private sector led organization with input from the public, for whose benefit ICANN shall in all events act. ICANN is a private organization and nothing in this Affirmation should be construed as control by any one entity.

9. Recognizing that ICANN will evolve and adapt to fulfill its limited, but important technical mission of coordinating the DNS, ICANN further commits to take the following specific actions together with ongoing commitment reviews specified below:

9.1 Ensuring accountability, transparency and the interests of global Internet users: ICANN commits to maintain and improve robust mechanisms for public input, accountability, and transparency so as to ensure that the outcomes of its decision-making will reflect the public interest and be accountable to all stakeholders by: (a) continually assessing and improving ICANN Board of Directors (Board) governance which shall include an ongoing evaluation of Board performance, the Board selection process, the extent to which Board composition meets ICANN's present and future needs, and the consideration of an appeal mechanism for Board decisions; (b) assessing the role and effectiveness of the GAC and its interaction with the Board and making recommendations for improvement to ensure effective consideration by ICANN of GAC input on the public policy aspects of the technical coordination of the DNS; (c) continually assessing and improving the processes by which ICANN receives public input (including adequate explanation of decisions taken and the rationale thereof); (d) continually assessing the extent to which ICANN's decisions are embraced, supported and accepted by the public and the Internet community; and (e) assessing the policy development process to facilitate enhanced cross community deliberations, and effective and timely policy development. ICANN will organize a review of its execution of the above commitments no less frequently than every three years, with the first such review concluding no later than December 31, 2010. The review will be performed by volunteer community members and the review team will be constituted and published for public comment, and will include the following (or their designated nominees): the Chair of the GAC, the Chair of the Board of ICANN, the Assistant Secretary for Communications and Information of the DOC, representatives of the relevant ICANN Advisory Committees and Supporting Organizations and independent experts. Composition of the review team will be agreed jointly by the Chair of the GAC (in consultation with GAC members) and the Chair of the Board of ICANN. Resulting recommendations of the reviews will be provided to the Board and posted for public comment. The Board will take action within six months of receipt of the recommendations. Each of the foregoing reviews shall consider the extent to which the assessments and actions undertaken by ICANN have been successful in ensuring that ICANN is acting transparently, is accountable for its decision-making, and acts in the public interest. Integral to the foregoing reviews will be assessments of the extent to which the Board and staff have implemented the recommendations arising out of the other commitment reviews enumerated below.

9.2 Preserving security, stability and resiliency: ICANN has developed a plan to enhance the operational stability, reliability, resiliency, security, and global interoperability of the DNS, which will be regularly updated by ICANN to reflect emerging threats to the DNS. ICANN will organize a review of its execution of the above commitments no less frequently than every three years. The first such review shall commence one year from the effective date of this Affirmation. Particular attention will be paid to: (a) security, stability and resiliency matters, both physical and network, relating to the secure and stable coordination of the Internet DNS; (b) ensuring appropriate contingency planning; and (c) maintaining clear processes. Each of the reviews conducted under this section will assess the extent to which ICANN has successfully implemented the security plan, the effectiveness of the plan to deal with actual and potential challenges and threats, and the extent to which the security plan is sufficiently robust to meet future challenges and threats to the security, stability and resiliency of the Internet DNS, consistent with ICANN's limited technical mission. The review will be performed by volunteer community members and the review team will be constituted and published for public comment, and will include the following (or their designated nominees): the Chair of the GAC, the CEO of ICANN, representatives of the relevant Advisory Committees and Supporting Organizations, and independent experts. Composition of the review team will be agreed jointly by the Chair of the GAC (in consultation with GAC members) and the CEO of ICANN. Resulting recommendations of the reviews will be provided to the Board and posted for public comment. The Board will take action within six months of receipt of the recommendations.

9.3 Promoting competition, consumer trust, and consumer choice: ICANN will ensure that as it contemplates expanding the top-level domain space, the various issues that are involved (including competition, consumer protection, security, stability and resiliency, malicious abuse issues, sovereignty concerns, and rights protection) will be adequately addressed prior to implementation. If and when new gTLDs (whether in ASCII or other language character sets) have been in operation for one year, ICANN will organize a review that will examine the extent to which the introduction or expansion of gTLDs has promoted competition, consumer trust and consumer choice, as well as effectiveness of (a) the application and evaluation process, and (b) safeguards put in place to mitigate issues involved in the introduction or expansion. ICANN will organize a further review of its execution of the above commitments two years after the first review, and then no less frequently than every four years. The reviews will be performed by volunteer community members and the review team will be constituted and published for public comment, and will include the following (or their designated nominees): the Chair of the GAC, the CEO of ICANN, representatives of the relevant Advisory Committees and Supporting Organizations, and independent experts. Composition of the review team will be agreed jointly by the Chair of the GAC (in consultation with GAC members) and the CEO of ICANN. Resulting recommendations of the reviews will be provided to the Board and posted for public comment. The Board will take action within six months of receipt of the recommendations.

9.3.1 ICANN additionally commits to enforcing its existing policy relating to WHOIS, subject to applicable laws. Such existing policy requires that ICANN implement measures to maintain timely, unrestricted and public access to accurate and complete WHOIS information, including registrant, technical, billing, and administrative contact information. One year from the effective date of this document and then no less frequently than every three years thereafter, ICANN will organize a review of WHOIS policy and its implementation to assess the extent to which WHOIS policy is effective and its implementation meets the legitimate needs of law enforcement and promotes consumer trust. The review will be performed by volunteer community members and the review team will be constituted and published for public comment, and will include the following (or their designated nominees): the Chair of the GAC, the CEO of ICANN, representatives of the relevant Advisory Committees and Supporting Organizations, as well as experts, and representatives of the global law enforcement community, and global privacy experts. Composition of the review team will be agreed jointly by the Chair of the GAC (in consultation with GAC members) and the CEO of ICANN. Resulting recommendations of the reviews will be provided to the Board and posted for public comment. The Board will take action within six months of receipt of the recommendations.

10. To facilitate transparency and openness in ICANN's deliberations and operations, the terms and output of each of the reviews will be published for public comment. Each review team will consider such public comment and amend the review as it deems appropriate before it issues its final report to the Board.

11. The DOC enters into this Affirmation of Commitments pursuant to its authority under 15 U.S.C. 1512 and 47 U.S.C. 902. ICANN commits to this Affirmation according to its Articles of Incorporation and its Bylaws. This agreement will become effective October 1, 2009. The agreement is intended to be long-standing, but may be amended at any time by mutual consent of the parties. Any party may terminate this Affirmation of Commitments by providing 120 days written notice to the other party. This Affirmation contemplates no transfer of funds between the parties. In the event this Affirmation of Commitments is terminated, each party shall be solely responsible for the payment of any expenses it has incurred. All obligations of the DOC under this Affirmation of Commitments are subject to the availability of funds.

So lets break it down once again.

The way this should work if its not broke please don't fix it! But now the internet is under global control and this could be very bad for us due to other government influence etc but basically the system that has worked for plenty of years is now subject to outside influence its only going to get worse folks.  :o

This is all about more control!   :(

I work on the fed gov side with ICANN.  This would have happened a long time ago but the argument holding things up has been IPv6 and the issuance of ".gov" domains which the US wants to keep a monopoly on.  Right now if you want a .gov outside of the US you have to have your country code after, .gov.br. .gov.cl, .gov.cn, etc.   US is exempt from this requirement and wants to keep it this way.

US to share Internet review amid worldwide growth

By ANICK JESDANUN, AP
48 minutes ago


NEW YORK — As Internet use expands worldwide, the United States said Wednesday it will give other governments and the private sector a greater oversight role in an organization whose decisions affect how computers relay traffic such as e-mail and Twitter posts.

The move comes after European regulators and other critics have said the U.S. government could wield too much influence over a system used by hundreds of millions of people worldwide. Those critics have complained, among other things, about the slow rollout of Internet addresses in languages other than English.

However, the U.S. government stopped short Wednesday of cutting its ties completely with the Internet organization, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, or ICANN. The government agreed instead to establish advisory panels made up of government and private-sector representatives around the world.

The panels will review how well ICANN decisions are made openly, reflect the public interest, ensure stability and promote competition for domain names, which are the monikers ending in ".com" and other suffixes. ICANN decisions could influence what domain names are available, what languages they are in and how much they cost.

"The Internet is on a long-term arch from being 100 percent American to being 100 percent global," said Rod Beckstrom, the former U.S. cybersecurity chief who joined ICANN as chief executive in July. "This is a significant step along that arch to becoming more global."

The U.S. Commerce Department has a guaranteed seat on only one of those panels, with the remaining representatives to be picked by leaders from ICANN and its advisory committee of government officials.

But the panels' recommendations won't be binding on ICANN. And Commerce retains oversight through a separate contract for ICANN to handle the nuts-and-bolts of domain name administration. That contract runs through 2011; the new one taking effect Thursday covers ICANN's broader role in setting guidelines and policies.

ICANN also agreed to remain a nonprofit headquartered in the United States — it's based in Marina del Rey, Calif. — with offices around the world.

Beckstrom said some critics abroad might take that to mean Internet governance still isn't truly global, but the arrangement should ultimately bolster ICANN's standing internationally.

"The U.S. government is saying, `OK, you have become a multistakeholder body. Congratulations. Now on to the next set of challenges,'" Beckstrom said.

Although the United States will be sharing oversight on these review panels, Commerce officials expect to be more active than before. In the past, the U.S. rarely exercised its veto power over ICANN decisions, and it didn't conduct the formal, public reviews envisioned by the new agreement.

"In the early years we were focused on building ICANN as an institution," Lawrence E. Strickling, assistant commerce secretary for communications and information, said in an interview. "We now are about to turn our attention to focusing on ICANN's performance."

ICANN has had oversight over domain names under a series of loose agreements with the U.S. government, which funded much of the Internet's development. The latest was expiring Wednesday.

Many critics of ICANN and its U.S. oversight, including the European Union's Internet chief, Viviane Reding, saw the expiration as an opportunity to revamp Internet governance.

Under the compromise in the new agreement, the review panels are to issue reports every three or four years. Their makeup will largely fall on ICANN's chief executive, an American; its chairman, who is from New Zealand; and the chairman of the Governmental Advisory Committee, currently a Latvian.

Reding praised the new framework in a statement, and said the governments that now have more of a say in ICANN should take advantage of the opportunity.

In the coming months ICANN hopes to revamp procedures for adding domain name suffixes, which likely would spawn hundreds or thousands of new Internet addresses. A launch has been delayed because of objections over such issues as whether trademark owners could wind up having to buy thousands of new domain names simply to protect their intellectual-property rights.

ICANN also is close to allowing entire Internet addresses to be in languages other than English for the first time, potentially easing the way online for people who now must type English characters to reach Web sites in their tongues. ICANN officials say they've needed time to come up with ways to reduce fraud and fairly assign new suffixes in other languages.

The U.S. Abandons the Internet
Multilateral governance of the domain name system risks censorship and repression.

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704471504574446942665685208.html
By JEREMY RABKIN AND JEFFREY EISENACH

There's a lot of concern out there right now about America's world leadership—facing down Iran's nuclear program, bracing NATO's commitment in Afghanistan, maintaining free trade. Here's something else to worry about: Has the Obama administration just given up U.S. responsibility for protecting the Internet?

What makes it possible for users to connect with all the different Web sites on the Internet is the system that allocates a unique electronic address to each site. The addresses are organized within larger entities called top-level domains—".com," ".edu," ".gov" and so on. Overseeing this arrangement is a relatively obscure entity, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). Without the effective oversight of ICANN, the Internet as we know it would not exist, billions of dollars of online commerce and intellectual property would be at risk, and various forms of mass censorship could become the norm.

Since its establishment in 1998, ICANN has operated under a formal contract with the U.S. Department of Commerce, which stipulated the duties and limits that the U.S. government expected ICANN to respect. The Commerce Department did not provide much active oversight, although the need to renew this contract, called the Joint Project Agreement (JPA), helped keep ICANN policies within reasonable bounds. That's why last spring, when the Commerce Department asked for comment on ending the JPA, the U.S. business community opposed the idea.

But the U.S. government's role in ICANN has long been a source of complaint from foreign nations. United Nations conferences have repeatedly voiced concerns about "domination of the Internet by one power" and suggested that management of the system should be handed off to the International Telecommunications Union—a U.N. agency dominated by developing countries. The European Union has urged a different scheme in which a G-12 of advanced countries would manage the Internet.

The Obama administration has declined to endorse such alternatives. Instead it has replaced the latest JPA, which expired Sept. 30, with a vaguely worded "Affirmation of Commitments." In it, ICANN promises to be a good manager of the Internet, and the Commerce Department promises—well, not much of anything. The U.S. will participate in a Governmental Advisory Committee along with some three dozen other nations but claims no greater authority than any other country on the committee, whose recommendations are not binding on ICANN in any case.

An ICANN cut loose from U.S. government oversight will not, for that reason, be free from political pressures.
One source of pressure will come from disputes about expanding top-level domain names. For example, would a ".xxx" domain help to isolate pornographic sites in a unique (and blockable) special area, or would it encourage censorship in other domains by suggesting that offensive images only appear there? Should we have ".food" or ".toys" along with ".com" domains? If we do, as the Justice Department warned last year in a letter to Commerce, companies that have invested huge sums to protect their trademarks under ".com" will have to fight for protection of their names in the new domains. Yet strangely, there is not a word in the new plan about protecting trademark rights or other intellectual property interests that might be threatened by new ICANN policies.

Even more disturbing is the prospect that foreign countries will pressure ICANN to impose Internet controls that facilitate their own censorship schemes. Countries like China and Iran already block Web sites they regard as politically objectionable. Islamic nations insist that the proper understanding of international human-rights treaties requires suppression of "Islamophobic" content on the Internet. Will ICANN be better situated to resist such pressures now that it no longer has a formal contract with the U.S. government?

It may be that the Obama administration expects to exert a steadying hand on ICANN in indirect or covert ways. Or here too it may have calculated that winning applause from other nations now is worth taking serious risks in the long run.

ICANN decisions could influence what domain names are available, what languages they are in and how much they cost.

"The Internet is on a long-term arch from being 100 percent American to being 100 percent global," said Rod Beckstrom, the former U.S. cybersecurity chief who joined ICANN as chief executive in July. "This is a significant step along that arch to becoming more global."

The U.S. Commerce Department has a guaranteed seat on only one of those panels, with the remaining representatives to be picked by leaders from ICANN and its advisory committee of government officials.

But the panels' recommendations won't be binding on ICANN. And Commerce retains oversight through a separate contract for ICANN to handle the nuts-and-bolts of domain name administration. That contract runs through 2011; the new one taking effect Thursday covers ICANN's broader role in setting guidelines and policies.

ICANN also agreed to remain a nonprofit headquartered in the United States — it's based in Marina del Rey, Calif. — with offices around the world.

Beckstrom said some critics abroad might take that to mean Internet governance still isn't truly global, but the arrangement should ultimately bolster ICANN's standing internationally.

"The U.S. government is saying, `OK, you have become a multistakeholder body. Congratulations. Now on to the next set of challenges,'" Beckstrom said.

Although the United States will be sharing oversight on these review panels, Commerce officials expect to be more active than before. In the past, the U.S. rarely exercised its veto power over ICANN decisions, and it didn't conduct the formal, public reviews envisioned by the new agreement.

"In the early years we were focused on building ICANN as an institution," Lawrence E. Strickling, assistant commerce secretary for communications and information, said in an interview. "We now are about to turn our attention to focusing on ICANN's performance."

ICANN has had oversight over domain names under a series of loose agreements with the U.S. government, which funded much of the Internet's development. The latest was expiring Wednesday.

Many critics of ICANN and its U.S. oversight, including the European Union's Internet chief, Viviane Reding, saw the expiration as an opportunity to revamp Internet governance.

Under the compromise in the new agreement, the review panels are to issue reports every three or four years. Their makeup will largely fall on ICANN's chief executive, an American; its chairman, who is from New Zealand; and the chairman of the Governmental Advisory Committee, currently a Latvian.

Reding praised the new framework in a statement, and said the governments that now have more of a say in ICANN should take advantage of the opportunity.

In the coming months ICANN hopes to revamp procedures for adding domain name suffixes, which likely would spawn hundreds or thousands of new Internet addresses. A launch has been delayed because of objections over such issues as whether trademark owners could wind up having to buy thousands of new domain names simply to protect their intellectual-property rights.

ICANN also is close to allowing entire Internet addresses to be in languages other than English for the first time, potentially easing the way online for people who now must type English characters to reach Web sites in their tongues. ICANN officials say they've needed time to come up with ways to reduce fraud and fairly assign new suffixes in other languages.

Now its here and don't you just love the terms like internet governance..  ::)

Yeah, seems like they're taking the concept of a cyberworld too seriously, like it's a world which needs to be governed instead of just a network connecting computers.

You have not read into their psychopathic control freak minds enough.

What part of the NWO wants you f**king dead don't you understand?  You aren't not supposed to have ANY freedom AT ALL, ZERO.  That means that you are not even supposed to THINK.  The Internet is a weapon to them BECAUSE WE HAVE HANDED THE NWO THEIR f**kING ASS IN THE INFOWAR MANY TIMES OVER.

I hope Alex is so empowered by the fact that "Hey, it's my show, I can do what I want", when the very delivery method for most of his material is over the Internet, when the Internet is no longer available for him to send his data.

I am so f**king pissed off that the masses are so oblivious to this shit, you ahve no idea.

Maybe you should take a look at my response to luckee in my stickied thread about this where I quote excerpts of the cybertyranny bill.

Your congressman have ZERO power to do jack shit about this takeover.  Even officials who were already working for the govt. saw this writing on the wall, and that is why Rod Beckstrom got the f**k out of dodge.  

Also, you had the Director of US-CERT resign.

I am going to say this again, in case any of you missed this:

THE EXACT f**kING PEOPLE WHO SCIENTIFICALLY AND MILITARILY ENGINEERED THE 9/11 FALSE FLAG, 7/7/5 ARE PART OF THE GROUP THAT IS TAKING OVER THE INTERNET.  AND NO, I DON'T MEAN THE GENERALIZATION OF "THE NWO IS TAKING OVER IT", I KNOW THEIR f**kING NAMES, I HAVE POSTED THEIR NAMES MANY TIMES, THEIR OWN DOCUMENTS CONVICT THEM OF THEIR CRIMES, THEIR OWN DOCUMENTS ARE ENOUGH TO INDICT THEM FOR MASS MURDER AND TREASON, BUT I HAVE YET TO SEE MORE THAN A HANDFUL OF PEOPLE MAKE MENTION OF THE FACT THAT THEY REALIZED THAT SAID DOCUMENTS WERE IN FACT AS DAMNING AS YOU HAVE BEEN TOLD THEY WERE.

I hear your frustration dude. Alex needs to stop the tantrums and all the little crap - it's funny and all but we're in dire straits here. And to be honest, I don't think he knows this information as well as you do or LordsSyndicate - so he feels it's out of his league or whatever. In any case, today's show and yesterday's show were all about the AFP story and while that's interesting, IMO the information you're covering is of far more importance - and it's slipping under everybody's radar.

He needs to give you a platform - perhaps let you do monthly guest appearances like an Alan Watt or Mike Rivero and then you would have the time to lay all this stuff out there. Alex's audience is pretty big - if you could get this information through and dumb it down a bit, we could have a big effect.

I've tried to do my part to bring more attention to your work. I've made a few transcripts of your radio shows with LordsSyndicate and AFAIK someone called Pilika is working on an accompanying presentation for your interview with James Corbett - he told me there are a lot of people here that get turned off by the technical stuff and don't really understand why it's so significant - so he's trying to simplify it a bit or draw up a few diagrams/flow charts so it makes sense to someone who has zero IT skills or knowledge.

But yeah - he should let you on and provide you with ample opportunity to talk about this information, or else the Internet as we know it will be dead by next year and Alex's radio show will be reduced to local AM-FMs, shortwave - ie nowhere near it is today.

I agree, unfortunately, with the dumb it down suggestion
I've tried to explain this to people using words and phrases from AI and others, but I just watch eyes glaze over
We all know the internet free flow of information is anathema to the globalists' plans, what we don't know is how they plan to take it down in terms easy to understand.   

How will that happen? What will all the large and small private internet companies do?  Wont there be a huge outcry as livelihoods fold everywhere?
It doesn't seem real, or possible, though I know it is.  A description of how this will work in layman's terms is really needed.

How will that happen?

Most Americans won't notice it. They will still be able to get to their favorite sites; their bank, the online shopping sites, facebook or myspace. The only people who will notice this will be people who look for truth online; Alex Jones sites, this forum, Rense, Alan Watt, and all torrent sites will be blocked (no documentaries), no David Icke, no WeAreChange sites, YouTube will be completely scrubbed, and they will use Artificial Intelligence (Ptech) to search for anything that might be 'truth' - by using key words.. or by using semantic understanding of languages (all languages on earth) - to 'filter' out the truth. If it fails to block a truth site; it will 'learn' from that mistake and will never 'fail' on that particular criteria again. It is unstoppable.

What will all the large and small private internet companies do? 

The cybersecurity bill affects any company or entity that the president decides is part of the 'critical' infrastructure - which could include your home computer. When they describe 'critical infrastructure' - the implication is that there might be pc's that aren't part of this. This is misleading and designed to give you the impression that your pc won't be affected. Don't forget they do these things "incrementally" - today its federal government computers, tomorrow it's your pc. The bill will allow this to happen; count on it.

Wont there be a huge outcry as livelihoods fold everywhere?

Do you hear a huge outcry about the stolen $28 trillion? Are people out in the streets screaming about the unemployment rate now? They approach these things in a way that has been meticulously planned for years - they do it slowly. Companies will have a choice to either comply with the regulations, or be forced out of business. They will choose to comply.

When the free and open internet is taken down, people will welcome it. Why? Because it will be preceeded by a cyber false flag that will threaten your ravaged bank accounts; and when that happens, the NWO masters expect you to get down on your knees and thank them for 'protecting' you from the big bad cyber attackers. They will not just turn off the internet.. they will leave you with a freshly scrubbed, sanitized-for-your-protection version of the internet where you'll still have the banking, myspace, amazon, porno sites, game sites; and other distractions to focus on while the rest of the constitution is thrown into the shredder.

There won't be a huge outcry because most people won't even notice.
And  the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, 
Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren,  ye have done it unto me.

The cover story and real truth are always different these days. It's hard to believe anything read or heard anymore. It's just censorship, deception and lies. Is it just me or is everything the us govt does seem to indicate that they are planning to dissolve/destroy the USA themselves, create chaos, jail millions of political opponents and declare themselves as a new fascist military empire and get the NWO Armageddon started? "You are either with us or against us", I believe is the phrase. I realize this is the worst case scenario, but it's not like that never happened before in human history and it does have all the same coincidences. The military will take over the internet (like it has not already)here and let someone else be bothered with ICANN paperwork.
Good post. They will spin their takeover differently, they are very good at labeling, exmaple, TORTURE- Enhanced Interrogation.
They will most likely tell the masses that the homegrown terrorist sympathizers are a national threat to the safety of this nation, therfor for the good of all citizens they must be removed and confined in order  to defend our freedoms and this nation.
When villages were raided by our military for corporate profits the first individuals to be executed were those of intelligence, the ones that could read and write, etc. In other words those very people they considered dangerous to their plan in any way. Smedly Butler writings and words are verification.
Those who stood against Hitler were labled communists, not intelligent freedom seeking citizens.

The US government has reportedly agreed to cede control over ICANN once its current pact with the internet oversight body expires next week.

ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers)

So it'll be renamed Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Tags?

Overall though, it seems to be adding a veneer of further bureaucracy, but ultimately it depends on how much sway the "oversight" panels have.  That is, if the "oversight" is about as effective as that over certain other programs and companies, it will mean that ICANN could have nearly unlimited self-control.  Alternatively, if the oversight panels have ultimate say, it then depends on how powerful they are compared to each other.

For example, if China has more political (within the oversight group) power than others, it would then exert general control over many aspects of ICANN.  If they are equal, it means that other deals will be brokered in the back rooms in order to support specific changes to ICANN.  However, that said, I'm vaguely certain that those back-room deals is a large part of why the ICANN's control is shifting.

Most important of all this, is that it means the US people have less and less control of ICANN, and the way the panels seem to be set up, it seems unlikely that the power and control of the company will become decentralized as outwardly the move is promoting.  Instead, it will go to those politicians and lobbyists and such who get put in place, rather than the people.

And ICANN is already something that the people have little to no real say in anyway.
There is no "gray" when it comes to what is good or evil, it is always black and white.  People have the potential to be as evil as Hitler, or as good as Gandhi or MLK Jr.  However, most people are more like zebras.

U.S. aims to give up control over Internet administration

By Craig Timberg, Friday, March 14, 4:19 PM E-mail the writer

U.S. officials announced plans Friday to relinquish federal government control over the administration of the Internet, a move likely to please international critics but alarm some business leaders and others who rely on smooth functioning of the Web.

Pressure to let go of the final vestiges of U.S. authority over the system of Web addresses and domain names that organize the Internet has been building for more than a decade and was supercharged by the backlash to revelations about National Security Agency surveillance last year.

“The timing is right to start the transition process,” said 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.”

The practical consequences of the decision were not immediately clear, but it could alleviate rising global complaints that the United States essentially controls the Web and takes advantage of its oversight role to help spy on the rest of the world.

U.S. officials set strict conditions and an indeterminate timeline for the transition from federal government authority, saying that a new oversight body must be created and win the trust of crucial stakeholders around the world, officials said. An international meeting to discuss the future of Internet is scheduled for March 24, in Singapore.
