  3. A little over a month and a half left until Obama hands over the internet!

President Barack Obama is determined to give away control of the Internet within two months — one of the worst blunders in the history of national security, economic policy, and the fight for liberty generally.

In the wake of the embarrassing revelation that the National Security Agency (NSA) was spying on foreign leaders, the Obama administration announced plans in 2014 to shift control of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) from the U.S. to a multilateral body.

Under the supervision of Obama crony and Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker — a billionaire heiress and campaign bundler with no technological experience, and a history of failure in the subprime loans industry — the administration has ignored critics of the plan. They point out that transferring control of domain names to a body like the UN’s International Telecommunication Union (ITU) could leave autocratic nations like Russia, China, and even Iran in charge of the world’s most important free medium.

The Department of Commerce is set to hand off the final vestiges of American control over the Internet to international authorities in less than two months, officials have confirmed.

The department will finalize the transition effective Oct. 1, Assistant Secretary Lawrence Strickling wrote on Tuesday, barring what he called "any significant impediment."

The move means the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority, which is responsible for interpreting numerical addresses on the Web to a readable language, will move from U.S. control to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, a multistakeholder body based in Los Angeles that includes countries such as China and Russia.

Critics of the move, most prominently Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, have pointed out the agency could be used by totalitarian governments to shut down the Web around the globe, either in whole or in part.

And anything from CNN and MSNBC is the god's honest, "cross my heart and hope to die", "swear on my mother's grave", 100% truth? Just keep dreaming.

They are definitely more likely to be true than anything on Breitbart. It'd be ridiculous to deny that.

Then please explain to me why the f***ed up MSM hasn't reported on any of these important stories within the last year alone:

- UK government conveniently deleted an entire database of evidence documenting pedophile rings
- Released emails which expose George Bush and Tony Blair plotting the Iraq War a FULL YEAR before the invasion
- Russia destroying most ISIS heavy weaponry as the US airdrops 50 tons of weapons into Syria
- DOJ created a “Domestic Terrorism Council” to target “anti-government views”
- Leaked ‘Drone Papers’ which reveal 90% of people killed in US drone strikes are innocent civilians
- The oil industry illegally dumping fracking waste water
- Pesticide manufacturers spending millions on a fixed PR response to the declining bee populations
- The US military sexual assault of Colombian children
- The NSA’s AURORAGOLD program which hacks cell phones around world

Want more? I can keep going.
