No Lame Duck Internet Giveaway & Democrat Dick Dubin's Response

Bill Smith, Editor, ARRA News Service: Today, Americans for Limited Government (ALG) put out the following press release:
Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging Congress to stop the Internet giveaway now and not wait until a lame duck session to attempt to stop the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) from ceding the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) functions to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN):

"Congress has a very specific choice. Are members going to allow President Obama to give away the Internet to a cabal of multinational corporations, creating an unaccountable global monopoly over Internet functions, or are they going to stick up for the interests of the American people and maintain U.S. oversight over the Internet's domain name system. Simply kicking this issue into the lame duck session could create the extreme likelihood that these corporate interests will be able to secure the giveaway after the elections when voters will no longer be able to hold their elected leaders accountable.

"Failure to secure U.S. oversight of the Internet's domain name system past the Obama administration, even if the desire is to somehow win the issue in the omnibus, will understandably fuel perception that the fix is in, and that the outcome has already been rigged. No political benefit to a temporary delay will materialize, because everyone will know the final battle remains on the horizon in December. And the American people will be forced to assume that the reason is because U.S. oversight of the Internet is scheduled to be terminated when it is too late for voters to react. Now is the time to fight and win this issue."
Three hours later ALG shared the response by Democrat Senator Dick Durbin response threatening a government shutdown over what he called an 'obscure and irrelevant' Internet giveaway. Senator "Dick head" said:"Can Ted Cruz and Republicans dream up an any more obscure and irrelevant issue to stop the business of the American government?" Durbin said. "If Senate Republicans can’t control Cruz at this point, imagine when he gets in full gear and starts running for president. [sic., in future years]"

"I couldn’t believe it when they told me this could stop the CR," he said, referring to the continuing resolution needed to keep the government funded after Sept. 30.
In other words Sen. Durban doesn't believe the Internet invented by Americans or American technology should remain under the control of U.S.A. . It appears to be solely another giveaway by the Obama Administration with no accrued benefit to the United States of America!

Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning responded to Durbin's comments and the Obama administration position on giving away the Internet.
"If the Internet giveaway is such an 'obscure and irrelevant' issue then why do Durbin and Senate Democrats care about it? Are they saying they will or will not vote for the continuing resolution over stopping the Internet giveaway? They have already voted for funding bills last year and the year before when the Internet giveaway was defunded. Now suddenly we are supposed to believe that Dick Durbin and others of his ilk want to shut down the government over it and yet is 'obscure and irrelevant.' Maybe Team Durbin just cares more about their corporate overlords Google, Amazon and Facebook who are pushing for the end of U.S. oversight of the Internet's domain name system.

"The simple fact that the government has not engaged in any due diligence to make certain that the transfer of Internet governance to its vendor would not unalterably disrupt the basic processes of the Internet due to antitrust litigation should make it clear to members on both sides of the aisle that extending the current contract at least another two years is the only prudent course. I am confident that Senator Durbin and his colleagues on the Democratic side of the aisle don't want to be forever known as the jokers who broke the Internet due to their petulance and political gamesmanship."
Contact your Senators and Representative immediately and tell them, in your own words of course, "that you mad as hell and that you do not want the control of the Internet's domain name system given over to control by either corporate globalists or potential foreign control."

Once given away, it is gone just like all the Gitmo terrorists released by President Obama. And there will be no long term good result for the people or business of the United States of America when foreign powers can intrude in our Internet operations be it via  denial of services, restriction of free speech, control of information, and more.
