George Soros’ ambitions still know no bounds.
You’ve probably heard that amid the several failures that compose the President Obama legacy is a plan to have the United States completely surrender control of the Internet.
After all, why not?
The United States built and controlled the thing for enough years, leading a global communications revolution so pervasive that it allows a housewife in Tucson to harangue a blogger in Pakistan about which breed of kitten is cuter, or allows a car designer in Tokyo to file his latest work with the New York office.
Americans have had their fun, improving the planet. Now it’s time to let some anonymous somebodies screw it all up.
President Obama promised that the United Nations would not take over the Internet, but like everything else he says, that was a lie, according to documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request, which is the only way Americans ever get the truth out of this Administration, usually much delayed.
UN control will be the most likely result when the United States gives up stewardship of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, or Icann, on September 30.
If you’ve ever set up a website, you’re probably at least peripherally aware of Icann, which oversees the whole catalog of sites in the Worldwide Web and makes sure the connections framework is functioning. The reason Icann can legally control the whole web is because it functions as a monopoly sanctioned by our own Commerce Department.
Once we surrender control, in order to keep working legally, Icann will need to be controlled by another recognized government authority. Enter the United Nations, many of whose members are salivating at the idea of being able to censor what does or does not appear on your home browser.
And guess who is working behind the scenes, knee deep in plans to regulate what’s on the Internet and, more importantly, what’s not allowed on the Internet?
Soros, the former Nazi employee who once compared himself to a mad god.
More specifically, his Open Society Justice Initiative is handling the takeover maneuvers. Old Gyorgy Schwartz (his birth name) never gets his own hands dirty. He has people to do that for him.
The Open Society Justice Initiative is an arm of Soros’ Open Society Foundations, his globe-girdling cabal, er, network of “charitable” foundations that spread his money around to the sorts of people who can maneuver, manipulate or simply destroy whatever Soros wants.
A leaked document, one of about 2,500 that have made their way onto the Internet thanks to hackers, describes OSJI proposals and calls for international regulation of “what information is taken off the Internet and what may remain.”
(In fact, Soros may have already been practicing removing information from the Internet, as the site that revealed the documents, DCLeaks, shortly after posting them had its pages on Soros mysteriously disappear — other pages were untouched — and had its Twitter account inexplicably suspended. The web pages are back as of this writing, but they were gone for at least a day.)
And what may remain, under these plans, is “those [sites] most supportive of open society.” Although the paper pretends its proposals are about protecting free speech, they are really about projecting an agenda.
If you’re not familiar with Soros’ “open society” concept, it’s pretty simple: global progressivism. While advocates of the open society claim to oppose collectivism, in practice, it leans socialist because it destroys traditional social structures and fuels chaos through groups like Black Lives Matter and other radicals, and pushes representative government toward mob rule. At least, that’s how Soros has always played it.
Soros’ open society schemes are the mad, raging fire at the heart of Progressivism, and the billionaire has always been more than happy to stoke the flames.
Political types often talk about an “October Surprise” in presidential campaigns. But with Obama ready to pass off control of the Internet on October 1, just before a crucial presidential election, watch for the withered hand of Soros to show itself and once again wreak havoc with our nation before anybody realizes what’s happening.
