Now That Obama Ceded Control of the Internet, Here’s What it Means

Sunday, October 2, 2016 21:26
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


ReadyNutrition Readers, as you may or may not know, as of midnight, October 1, 2016, the U.S. control over the Internet was handed over to ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers.  Congressmen wrote letters, experts petitioned their protests, and four states lodged a complaint in a U.S. District Court in Galveston, TX.  Guess what?  Nothing worked, and in the latter, the District Court judge was an Obama appointee who denied any delay in the transfer of the Internet into foreign hands on September 30, 2016.  Foreign nations, such as Russia, China, Saudi Arabia, North Korea, Iran, and Cuba, to name a few, are now in control of the Internet and its functions.

This is very bad.

Already there are effects being felt.  There have been many comments on many different websites about the slowness of the Internet, coupled with the inability to log onto sites, especially those of the independent news media.  Personally I have experienced such, in the form of not being able to enter Alex Jones, Dave Hodges, or SHTFplan’s websites, the latter of which I write for.  Responses I have received on the screen vary from “Yahoo is unable to connect with this website,” or “Malfunction in connecting to this website,” or “This website is temporarily unavailable.”  Sometimes the page comes up and a message “[Whatever website] not responding,” and nothing can be accessed from the site.

Such has been happening for the past two weeks, now, prior to the handover of the Internet to ICANN.  Interestingly enough, after attempts to reach these websites, I was completely successful if I entered some left-wing or liberal one such as “The Huffington Post” or “The Washington Post,” with absolutely no difficulties.

Let’s look at some problems from an individual perspective that will soon arise from this transfer of the Internet:

  1. Loss of ability/decreased ability to access conservative, independent news media sites.
  3. Censorship of postings and comments for the aforementioned sites.
  5. Problems with e-mails and e-mail delivery
  7. Slowdown and/or delay of Internet service.
  9. An exponential increase in “trolls” and other disparaging, “nonproductive” commenters on sites.
  11. Inability or difficulty making purchases online, for varying articles of equipment or preparation (such as night-vision devices, adaptors, anything firearm related, and literature pertaining to prepping, survival, or current events perspectives from a non-globalist perspective.
  13. Complete monitoring of all personal business and private communications.
  15. Problems with personal finances: shopping, bank accounts, checking, bill payments, and anything in these categories that is done via the Internet.

Now let’s examine some of the problems that will affect us as individuals from a national perspective:

  1. National Defense: Ever since GridEx 2014 in Hawaii where we allowed the Russians and the Chinese to participate in drills with the United States military, we have been at much greater risk. The Russians and Chinese now know (courtesy of Obama) our vulnerabilities regarding our electrical power infrastructure, as well as how an EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) would affect them.  Chinese hackers can now access our computer systems and no longer have to hack: The Internet has been handed to them.
  3. Shipping: all critical transportation systems for food, medicine, and other important necessities now have their inventories and shipping at the mercy of ICANN.
  5. Finance: it will now be a simple matter to either access or crash bank accounts, IRA’s, pensions, and business venues (such as Wall Street, the FDIC, and the Federal Reserve) can easily be shut down with the flip of a switch.
  7. Censorship: all of the countries mentioned will have a say in what is permitted, and they are not “icons” of freedom of speech in their own nations. They have long desired to see censorship imposed on the U.S.  Such will mean the loss of or the rendering as ineffective the independent and conservative news venues.
  9. Monitoring: monitoring us and all of our activities – and this has military applications for those nations, as intelligence is gathered upon the economic, social, and political actions of another nation.

Spotting Trolls and How to Deal with Them

As far as the “trolls” go, they are easy to spot.  They will appear on the site, and have usually never posted before, or if so, are under “anonymous” or some other generic, “nebulous” handle.  Trolls disrupt the normal flow and facilitation of information in a discussion, going “off topic” in an attempt to discourage readers, website hosts, and writers with disparaging remarks and things that are insulting.  Pay them no heed: continue to prepare, and sift the relevant data and useful information from the article and the comments.

Nobody is perfect: not writers, their sources, or commenters.  You can spot something amiss when you see the aim is either to disparage, discourage, or discredit…all negative actions with no positive use to the preppers and positive contributors on these venues.  Mark my words: this activity of negative slanders and unproductive comments will do nothing but increase with time.

Here’s another thing for you to be sure of: the trolls and collaborators working for the establishment trying to destroy the independent news sites are not going to be rewarded in the end by their handlers.  They will be taken down by those they serve.  To substantiate this, read Solzhenitsyn’s “Gulag Archipelago” and study the history of the formation of the Soviet Union.  Read “Animal Farm” and “1984” by George Orwell (Eric Blair, if you prefer).

I ask an open question: What are you experiencing in terms of the difficulties that I have mentioned, and additionally, what solutions do you see for us as a community overall?

We are not merely welcoming your comments in this instance: we are asking you for them, please.  Who knows how much time is left before such venues of communication between all of us are either prohibited or rendered ineffective?  Only time will tell, but tyranny is sure to increase before it either decreases or is checked.  But tyranny can and must be resisted, and you can do it.  Starts in your home, with you and your family.  To paraphrase that “Terminator” movie, “If you are reading this, you are the resistance.”  Keep fighting the good fight, and please write to us.  We’re all depending on your input.  JJ out!

    No problems opening the 3 websites mentioned – Alex Jones, Dave Hodges, or SHTFplan’s websites. Everything seems to work as usual.

    No this is not “Very bad” this is very good and the OP does not know what he is talking about.

    The USA thinks it owns the internet but the Google/Facebook/Twitter/Youtube monoply is coming to an end because they are trying to censor the internet and Microsoft is spying on everything.

    God did not say that top level domain controllers must all be american and the americans talk about using this advantage so that it can have some type of internet kill switch which would never work anyway because DNS data is replicated do to ISP levels

    Ipv4 only has 4.2bn addresses but one billion of them are reserved by USA Corporations so thats three IP’s for every american citizen and most of these addresses are never ever used by anyone.

    We did not run out of Ipv4 addresses about two years ago but we do have a glut of them being sat on so any move to reduce the glut is a good thing because they want to force us on to IPv6 (Turn it off) which will be needed as they want to do away with NAT routers so that everything on the internet of things will expose it’s own unique IP address.

    In other words they don’t want to know that someone living at 1 high street said XYZ but they want to know which one living at that address said it and this is why Microsoft & Co want everyone on Ipv6 ASAP

    Ipv4 = 256 X 256 X 254 X 256 Total is 4.3 billion
    IPv6 f:e:::0 = 65535 X 65535 X 65535 X 65535 X 65535 X 65535 X Total is
    Every item you and everyone ever buys from the shop can have it own Ipv6 Address

    “That Obama Ceded Control of the Internet”

    He gave up the rights to own and control a database that we could take away with or without his permission and becides this database we have several others that are not as big but the USA never owned in the first place

      Like the Panama Canal, the USA built it and they owned it . Also like the Panama Canal it was stupid to give away to people who do not value it , did not design and create it, and have no right to it .

      The first thing Panama did after screaming they wanted the canal was to sell it to the Chinese. They didn’t want it they just didn’t want us to have it . You sound like you come from the same ilk, desirous of profiting from that which you did not create and jealous of those that did.

    I dont see how you think america soesnt ir has not owned the internet.. DARPA formally ARPA created it. It was a node system that was named arpanet that evolved in to todays internet. So no i respectfully disagree with your biew that it is owned by the world. Your view is that same as quoting apple inc is owned by russia or the dod is owned by mexico. Last time i checked ford was not owned by the people but by a company. Last i checked the internet is owned by america and its infrastructure.
