Reuters News: “Chinese President Xi Jinping on Wednesday called for greater cooperation among nations in developing and governing the internet, while reiterating the need to respect so-called “cyber sovereignty”.

Xi repeated China’s pledge to “promote equitable global internet governance” while upholding “cyber sovereignty”, or the right of countries to determine how they want to manage the internet.”

Opinion: Now that our president and his leftist cronies turned control of ICAAN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) to the United Nations and China, Xi Jinping is moving quickly to establish his pro-censorship idea of international rules and standards’ for the internet while Obama is still in office.

Translation: global governance of the world-wide web.

Ted Cruz led the failed fight in Congress to block Obama from turning over the internet, but the measure passed on October 1, and it is unlikely that President-elect Trump will be able to take it back.

Meanwhile, here at home Twitter suspended high-profile accounts associated with the alt-right movement, the same day the social media service said it would crack down on hate speech.

Hmmmm, Breitbart is considered the “Alt Right” a site we have posted from thousands of times. The speech police are on the prowl and the 1st Amendment is in the cross-hairs.

Paging Mr. Trump.
