Ted Cruz puts Obama’s internet give-a-away into startling perspective with one question

Powered by Topple

Sen. Ted Cruz brought the entire issue of the United States losing the last vestige of control over the internet to the public eye.

Despite, certain states stepping in to stop it, the United States, with the blessing of President Barack Obama, will hand over internet control to the global elite, on Friday, September 30, barring a miracle.

Beginning Saturday, October 1, the California-based Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), will no longer be under the control of the Department of Commerce.

During a committee hearing Wednesday, Texas Republican Cruz questioned ICANN CEO Göran Marby on the transfer — but there was one question in particular that stood and which the entire issue of ceding control to an international agency comes down to.

“Is ICANN bound by the First Amendment?” was the question, which Marby clearly didn’t want to answer.

“I think you know the answer to that question,” he said — leaving the answer unsaid.

“I’m asking you for your views,” Cruz asked.

“To my understanding, no.”

And that’s what’s wrong with relinquishing control, as America First! stated in its tweet accompanying the video.

With ICANN no longer subject to U.S. agency control, the First Amendment freedom of expression no longer applies.

And again, barring a miracle, it’s too late now.
