In a recent essay entitled, “The Strategic Significance of the Internet Commons,” former Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff describes cyberspace and the Internet as a “global commons” that must come under “global governance.” This is the latest salvo in an ongoing campaign by a disparate congeries of internationalists, socialists, communists, and jihadists to turn over control of the Internet to some sort of regime under the United Nations.
Unbeknownst to most Americans, the effort to transfer that control to the UN — including Internet taxing, censoring, and surveillance powers — is already far advanced. As The New American reported in March of this year, the Obama administration has already begun the phased transfer of Internet control to a nebulous and uncertain governance structure that has been set up as an innocent-appearing transition platform that, ultimately, is set for transfer to UN control.
The Chertoff article, which appeared on the International Relations and Security Network (ISN) on August 14, was originally published in the Summer 2014 issue of Strategic Studies Quarterly, a journal published by the Air Force Research Institute.

Why do liberal always feel that they have to fix that which needs no fixing thereby destroying it? You can restrain a criminal. You can even restrain an honest person. But it is impossible to restrain a fool. See my blog at http://cranky-conservative.blogspot.com
This is what Americans get for sitting on their arses and doing nothing or waiting for someone else to do something. We, Americans, are losing everything and don't care. How sick America has become. A mass selfie and cowardly nation and letting all of us veterans and those in today doing it all for nothing. Keep it up fools
You said we don't care. We includes you. Why don't you care? If you do care, why are you here whining about it and not out doing something about it? Oh, I see you already answered yourself with cowardly nation. The truth is that full stomachs make for a docile herd. When people feel they have something to lose, they don't want to be the front running in a suicide attack against evil government. And make no mistake, the first to go will be the first to die. So, you first and we'll see how that turns out and then we can see what comes next, OK?
CHERTOFF IS NOTHING MORE THAN A SOUR BIG MOUTH PUNK FOR THE MATXIST FASSION OF STONEAGE LIFE! WAS WORTHLESS IN THE GOVT AND MORE WORTHLESS NOW! LISTENING TO HIM IS A WASTE OF ONES VALUABLE TIME!
The Obama Administration is just FULL of Bad Ideas. It is all about CONTROL. They're full of something.
The whole purpose of the internet was to DE-centralize the means of communication in case of nuclear attack. The government wants to control it because politicians can’t lie to people anymore and expect the corporate owned media to cover it up for long.
As a wise man once said: “It took 35 years for the majority of Americans to learn the JFK assassination was the result of a conspiracy and not some lone nut named Lee Oswald; today the half-life of a government lie can be clocked with an egg timer!”
Chertoff was secretary of Homeland Security under Bush who, along with a Republican-led Congress, created the TSA, DHS, NDAA and USAPatriot Act, which cleared the way for a dictator like Obama. Obama is just Bush on steroids.
>>> HOW COULD THE EVIL NEW WORLD ORDER HAVE ANYTHING TO SAY ABOUT THE INTERNET OR THE
FLUSHING OF A TOILET . ? <<<

Chert off is a principle at RAPISCAN. Guess what they do: Airport body scanners. What scum we have in our leadership. That’s why Rome fell; this kind a arrogance and amorality.
