Is U.N. Internet Takeover Coming?

Is U.N. Internet Takeover Coming?
PHOTOS.COM

Internet censorship via a United Nations initiative could be a very real possibility for citizens in the United States, depending on the outcome of talks scheduled to take place next month at a conference in Dubai.

At the upcoming World Conference on International Telecommunications, U.N. members could potentially advocate controls that would censor free speech, levy tariffs on e-commerce, and even force companies to clean up their “e-waste” and make gadgets that are better for the environment.

U.S. officials say that the Nation is against the U.N. proposals because management of the Internet by one central organization goes against free speech.

“[Doing nothing] would not be a terrible outcome at all,” Terry Kramer, the chief U.S. envoy to the conference, said in an interview with FOX. “We need to avoid suffocating the Internet space through well-meaning but overly prescriptive proposals that would seek to control content.”

An event is planned for Nov. 14 at 2 p.m. at the W Hotel in Washington, D.C., by a group of Internet freedom advocates who will preview what the U.N. agenda will likely be next month in Dubai.

    I’m leaving a reply now just because I still can. After the commies in the White House get through with us, we will be stripped of all rights….unless we are homosexual illegal foreigners who think murdering babies and old people is cool. God save us from this madness.

      To go where? All western nations have lost their sovereignty and have had socialist policies forced on them and ‘the people’ let it happen. The NWO is here now. It is just a matter of time before this reality goes from covert to overt.

      • Dawn Pepe

        Actually, I have been looking into other countries and Australia is like our country used to be. In fact, they are laughing at our stupidity.

      • ChuckS

        Didn’t Obama force Honduras to change it’s leadership early in his adminsistration? Obama may try to force other countries to go commie or muslim. Australia would be a tough one for that, however.

      • Texas Ride

        Australia isn’t so smart. The lost the right to own firearms and can’t defend themselves….At least we haven’t given up our guns..

      • ChristyK

        Try Chile especially if you speak a little spanish. They had a major revolution to more freedom a good while ago. They even changed a system almost identical to our social security and changed it to free market and it worked great.

      • ChristyK

        Panama and Paraguay recently changed their laws to make it easy for Americans to immigrate there.

        • wheels

          People WILL be leaving in droves and it will be the MONEY PEOPLE AND COMPANIES FIRST! Then we can see how king nobama handles all his “FREE STUFF” people when the government coffers are bone dry and income tax is set at 100%!

    Could? Not will?

    Your first paragraph that I quoted does not mesh with the second one.

  • GALT

    Seriously? None of what is HERE needs to be controlled, because INFORMATION
    is out of control………and actual information is easily countered by disinformation,
    and the intelligence required to sort through it is unavailable among the general
    population……let alone knowing what to do with it, after you have determined what it
    is.

    Consider this article…….Does anyone actually take the U.N. seriously?

    SERIOUSLY???????

    • ljwoolley

      The UN & the NWO is here!!! We just have to take America back!!!!

      • GALT

        waste of time and energy…..a distraction…..nothing more……

      Speaking of “disinformation” — Heeeere’s Galt.

    Don’t rule it out, people. Never forget that the U N is made up of semi-humans who have brainwashed themselves into thinking that EVERYTHING they do is for the benefit of others. Sound familiar?
    People who have investigated the U N know that Amerika will be better off if it is moved to another country. I suggest that it be moved – forcibly, if necessary – to the nearest Muslim country.
    That will forever settle the idea of whether or not we need to be part of such a criminall-minded organization. Besides, having the U N re-located to a Muslim nation will PROVE for all time that fairness, integrity, responsibility [or a 'socially just' faith] should NEVER be mentioned in the same breath as the U N.

  • wheels

    TO THE UN I SAY GO TO HELL AND TAKE YOUR MUSLIM “BOY” nobama WITH YOU!

  • wheels

    Time to politely escort the U.N. out of the United States and our lives. And if they object, then throw their ass out!!
