House to examine plan for United Nations to regulate the Internet – The Hill\\\’s Hillicon Valley

House to examine plan for United Nations to regulate the Internet – The Hill\\’s Hillicon Valley

via House to examine plan for United Nations to regulate the Internet – The Hill\\\’s Hillicon Valley.

House lawmakers will consider an international proposal next week to give the United Nations more control over the Internet.

The proposal is backed by China, Russia, Brazil, India and other UN members, and would give the UN’s International Telecommunication Union (ITU) more control over the governance of the Internet.

It’s an unpopular idea with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle in Congress, and officials with the Obama administration have also criticized it.

 

“We’re quite concerned,” Larry Strickling, the head of the Commerce Department’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration, said in an interview with The Hill earlier this year.

He said the measure would expose the Internet to “top-down regulation where it’s really the governments that are at the table, but the rest of the stakeholders aren’t.”

At a hearing earlier this month, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) also criticized the proposal. He said China and Russia are “not exactly bastions of Internet freedom.”

“Any place that bans certain terms from search should not be a leader in international Internet regulatory frameworks,” he said, adding that he will keep a close eye on the process.

Yet the proposal could come up for a vote at a UN conference in Dubai in December.


Next week’s hearing is expected to bring more attention in the U.S. to the measure, which would give the UN more control over cybersecurity, data privacy, technical standards and the Web’s address system. It would also allow foreign government-owned Internet providers to charge extra for international traffic and allow for more price controls.

The House Energy and Commerce subcommittee on Communications and Technology will hold the hearing and hear testimony from Robert McDowell, a Republican commissioner on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC); David Gross, a former State Department official; and Sally Shipman Wentworth, the senior manager of public policy for the nonprofit Internet Society.

The Internet is currently governed under a “multi-stakeholder” approach that gives power to a host of nonprofits, rather than governments.

Strickling said that system brings more ideas and flexibility to Internet policymaking.  

“We lose that when we turn this over to a group of just governments,” Strickling said.

In an op-ed earlier this year in The Wall Street Journal, McDowell warned that “a top-down, centralized, international regulatory overlay is antithetical to the architecture of the Net.”

“Productivity, rising living standards and the spread of freedom everywhere, but especially in the developing world, would grind to a halt as engineering and business decisions become politically paralyzed within a global regulatory body,” McDowell wrote.

He said some governments feel excluded from Internet policymaking and want more control over the process.

“And let’s face it, strong-arm regimes are threatened by popular outcries for political freedom that are empowered by unfettered Internet connectivity,” McDowell wrote.

HAWAII VERIFIES OBAMA A DUAL CITIZEN: NOT QUALIFIED FOR PRESIDENCY « drkatesview

Fathom the hypocrisy of a Government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured … but not prove they are a citizen.”

***********

Hawaii verified two things that are fatal to Obama’s qualifications for the presidency: first, he has a foreign father who was never an American; second, Obama is a dual citizen.

Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett’s Milquetoast email request for Hawaii to confirm the ‘information on Obama’s birth in Hawaii, and to accept an email response, got him what he, the republicans, and Obama wanted: another false ‘official’ statement from Hawaii’s Department of Heath (HDOH) supposedly validating Obama’s birth in Hawaii.  Ah, more ‘stuff’ that they can hide behind, claiming ‘due diligence’ has been done.

Hoping to put an end to the story,those pesky ballot challenges and Sheriffs, Hawaii and the AZ SoS perpetuate the myth and meme of ‘born in the USA”, or “American citizen”–as the only qualifying factor for President– to deceive the voting public.  The Hawaii release did not authenticate Obama’s 2011 electronic version of the Birth Certificate, leaving Sheriff Arpaio’s investigation in tact and relevant.  Hawaii also did not verify anything about Obama’s adoption.

We told you.

What no one expected was to have Barack Obama’s dual citizenship confirmed, again, by listing the name and birthplace of the father Barack Obama Senior and Kenya, East Africa (lots of name changes there since the 2008 short form).  Barack Obama junior was born a dual citizen of Britain and the United States.  The failure for Mr. Obama is that once born a British citizen, one cannot lose that citizenship unless it is specifically renounced.  His Kenyan citizenship may have expired unless he claimed it in 1983-but not his original British bonafides.

Article II Section 1 Clause 5 of the Constitution requires the president to be either in either one of two citizenship categories:

  1.  a ‘natural born citizen’, or
  2.  a ‘citizen of the United States at the time of the adoption of this Constitution’:

No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

Solid Constitutional, legal, and historic information support the definition of natural born citizen that must be used until the United States Supreme Court says differently.  A natural born citizen is born in the United States of parents who are American citizens.  Not a single parent; not the mother or the father, but both parents.

Obama has a foreign father thus fails the two-citizen parent test.

The consistent mistakes made by all deniers of Article II include citing erroneous case law, the 14th Amendment, or stating Article II reads that ‘citizens’ are allowed to be President, ignoring the necessary phrase ‘at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution’ in context. Other mistakes are made in looking to English Common Law’s definitions of and rules for acquiring ‘citizenship’.  A British citizen-subject is not an American natural born citizen.

But even if these common mistakes that Obama supporters and attorneys make are allowed to stand in court, no one can say that Article II permits a dual citizen to be the president

You have to be ‘natural born’ or, a ‘citizen at the time of the adoption of this Constitution’.  The Constitution does not add that category dual citizen as eligible for the Presidency. Nothing in any further legislation or amendment makes the Presidency open to being filled by a ‘naturalized’ American citizen.

The bottom line is that even if you think there is ambiguity in the definition of ‘natural born citizen’, there is NO AMBIGUITY that a dual citizen cannot be president or vice president of the United States.

Bennett’s Mistake is an Opening

Bennett makes his first mistake by asking only if Obama was born in Hawaii.  In doing so, Bennett actually takes it upon himself to define natural born citizen as ‘born in the USA” in contrast to 200 years of Constitutional law and Supreme Court case law in the United States. Furthermore, by ignoring the citizenship of Barack Obama’s father and Obama’s resulting dual citizenship, Bennett is unlawfully expanding the definition of natural born citizen to include dual citizens. As the State’s top election official, he has no authority to change the definition of natural born citizen nor to expand the classes of citizens qualified to hold the office.

After informing Secretary Bennett of Mr. Obama’s statement admitting the British Nationality Act governs his citizenship, the next series of questions for Secretary Bennett could include:

  • Does the Constitution permit a dual citizen to hold the office of President?
  • Does the Constitution permit a ‘naturalized’ citizen to hold the office of President?
  • Has Barack Obama renounced his dual citizenship with Britain?
  • Does Barack Obama’s known adoption by an Indonesian affect his existing dual citizenship?
  • Has Barack Obama naturalized as an American citizen?

These are questions Secretary Bennett should forward to the Attorney General.  An honest investigation will find that unless the Constitution is formally amended or the Supreme Court rules on these questions, Mr. Obama cannot qualify for Arizona’s ballot.

(update) This information, coupled with his publicist’s printing of  his biography raises significant doubt as to the legal validity or wisdom of placing Barack Obama on the ballot.  After all is said and done, this is misprision of felony!

Let this be the due diligence Arizonan’s require and their public servants provide. Let this effort lock him out of our White House forever!
