Several days ago I posted an article about how our beloved ruler, in his Marxist omniscience, was planning to give the Internet in this country to some other, outside governing body, which would then “regulate” (control its content) so that Americans would not have it to garner information from and we would be back to depending on the same old hackneyed Establishment “news” media for what we needed to know about how government was stiffing us.
Actually it probably wasn’t our beloved ruler personally that came up with this but rather the Establishment creatures that give him his marching orders and the agenda he is to follow if he wants to remain in office. These are the same people who will do the exact same thing for Hillary when she ascends to the throne in the White House.
The information I received about this gave the numbers of bills in both House and Senate that had been introduced to combat this, but it seems that, in both houses these bills we “in committee” which means that’s probably where they would die a natural death. Very few senators and house members co-sponsored these bills, which means we had (and have) a bad case of congressional apathy. Most of them really didn’t give a hoot, in fact some of them might have actually been happy to see this happen as it might mean, if some foreign body ends up “regulating” the Internet there might be less negative info available about them to ordinary folks. And they wonder why the approval rate for Congress hovers around 6 percent!
Per the request I received about this I did contact my senators and representative urging them to sign up and co-sponsor the bills that would potentially keep the Internet in US hands and out of UN hands. The response I have received from my elected representatives has, shall we say, been rather underwhelming. I got one, rather tepid letter back from one senator that assured me he’d keep my views in mind on this subject. Nothing more. The other two didn’t bother. If other congress critters around the country have shown as much concern as the congress critters here in North Louisiana I have to conclude that Congress, as a whole, couldn’t care less about the UN controlling the Internet instead of the US. That bothers me. Because if Congress is too lethargic to care about the flow of information to US citizens free of UN control, then what else is there out there that concerns us that they just don’t care about?
Actually, I was a bit surprised. Usually my representative and senators are pretty good on the issues I write to them about and I do write to them about what bothers me. I have contacted them so often about Second Amendment issues I am surprised they don’t know me by the first name. They know when some gun control issue comes up they will get a communication from me letting them know what I think they should do. But on this issue, they seem mostly dead in the water–and I wonder why.
What’s going on that everyone shies away from dealing with our handing control of the Internet over to the UN or some other equally reprehensible foreign body? What’s the deal here?
Today is the last supposedly “free” day for the Internet and it’s not that our Congress is apathetic–it’s just that they don’t seem to care very much. I just contacted the one senator that bothered to write me and told him his letter was rather tepid and didn’t really tell me much. It looked like the kind of letter some ribbon clerk up on the 6th floor in an un-air conditioned office wrote and not what I usually get from this man.
I am beginning to wonder if Congress has been told to back off on this issue and just let it happen–all in the “national interest” of course. Figured I’d better post this today while I still had the chance as I don’t know how welcome it will be tomorrow or thereafter.
Trump says he wants to make America great again. If the current Marxist administration has its way it’s not going to leave him very much to work with!
