Possible UN Internet Takeover Could Lead to Censorship

When the Obama administration announced its plan to give up U.S. protection of the internet, it promised the United Nations would never take control.
But because of the administration’s naiveté or arrogance, U.N. control is the likely result if the U.S. gives up internet stewardship as planned at midnight on Sept. 30.
On Friday Americans for Limited Government received a response to its Freedom of Information Act request for “all records relating to legal and policy analysis . . . concerning antitrust issues for the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers” if the U.S. gives up oversight. The administration replied it had “conducted a thorough search for responsive records within its possession and control and found no records responsive to your request.”
It’s shocking the administration admits it has no plan for how Icann retains its antitrust exemption. The reason Icann can operate the entire World Wide Web root zone is that it has the status of a legal monopolist, stemming from its contract with the Commerce Department that makes Icann an “instrumentality” of government.
Antitrust rules don’t apply to governments or organizations operating under government control. In a 1999 case, the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the monopoly on internet domains because the Commerce Department had set “explicit terms” of the contract relating to the “government’s policies regarding the proper administration” of the domain system.
Could this "internet take over" be the censorship that Matt Drudge warned about on the show Infowars last year? 
Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton’s campaign suggested in a recent fundraising email that the website Breitbart News has no “right to exist” and that Clinton would shut it down if elected, putting all alternative news in danger. Excerpt taken from www.infowars.com
Could all of these events be connected? Only time will tell, in the mean time all we can do is prepare for the worst. The internet is hammering the New World Order for the elite to accomplish their goals they must tame this beast through Communist censorship tactics.
