With the latest call from China for an Internet "code of conduct" to be enforced by the "international community" we see the final phase of of an agenda meant to curtail free speech and control what is said, who says it and who sees it on the world wide web. For Americans, these "international norms" would directly nullify their constitutional right of free speech.
"It is highly necessary and pressing for the international community to jointly bring about an international code of conduct on cyberspace at an early date," said Wang Qun, director-general of the Arms Control Department of the Chinese Foreign Ministry, in comments to the U.N. General Assembly.
Wang's comments were reported by China's main state-owned press outlet, the Xinhua News Agency.
"China, for its part, will continue to commit itself to establishing a peaceful, secure, open and cooperative cyberspace and pushing for an early international code of conduct acceptable to all," Wang added.
For anybody that still has any doubt that Americans have been sold down the river and this was the agenda the whole time, we can pinpoint specific events that have brought us to the brink of having our Internet freedom of speech completely stifled.
Look back to a Newsweek article from March 2015, titled "Obama Wants a Global Community to Run the Internet, but It Could End Up in the Hands of China. Or Putin."
But they acknowledge that such a vision is yet to be fleshed out. A process to define a new approach to Internet governance was launched at a March conference in Singapore. Another gathering will be hosted in late April by Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff in São Paolo. There, organizers hope, global "stakeholders" will form a body capable of taking over the functions currently performed by the U.S. government. There will be other conferences, including one next September in Turkey, whose prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, just tried to muzzle Twitter in his country.
Pessimists note that international conferences often end in disagreement and rancor. Just look at what has happened to international talks on environmental issues, where for decades governments and activists have failed to agree on meaningful measures to combat climate change. Instead of a meeting of the minds, the pessimists fear, powerful undemocratic governments will muscle in and stifle the freedoms now enjoyed by Web users.
More from the Washington Times from May 2014:
In advance of a meeting in 2012 to consider changes to the ITU’s international communications regulations, Russia’s Vladimir Putin explicitly stated that he wanted to achieve “international control of the Internet using the monitoring and supervisory capability” of the United Nations.
What’s more, several countries did not hide their intent to adopt as official policy government censorship of Internet communications. A proposal floated by Russia, China, Saudi Arabia and Iran — countries not known for respecting free speech — declared that ITU member states should be allowed to restrict communications “used for the purpose of interfering in the internal affairs or undermining the sovereignty, national security, territorial integrity, and public safety of other states; or to divulge information of a sensitive nature.”
Jump forward to September 2015 where ANP published the text of Barack Obama's speech in front of the United Nations General Assembly, where we the language used, stating "For those that have wondered what one "event" would happen in September that would lead the world into the next phase of the New World Order agenda, look no further than Barack Obama's speech given on September 28, 2015 before the UN's General Assembly, where American sovereignty wasn't mentioned, but instead "international system," a "system of international rules and norms," an "international order," an "integrated world," as well as "international norms and principles and law," and the pièce de résistance of Obama's comments where he says "strong nations, above all, have a responsibility to uphold this international order," peppered the whole speech.
(Scroll down to the bottom of the article linked above to read the entire transcript.)
While Obama was supposedly speaking about Putin, there is no doubt, seen in conjunction with the reports quoted above and below, Obama was setting the stage to usher in the "New world order," a one world government, in which U.S. Constitutional rights would be subverted by an International rule of law.
Is it a coincidence that directly after that speech, Obama signed on to the TPP, which had been in the world for over 5 years, where in a recent article quoting Expose the TPP, we see the following:
Of the TPP's 29 draft chapters, only 5 deal with traditional trade issues. Most would set rules on non-trade matters that affect our daily lives:
Food safety, internet freedom, medicine costs, job off-shoring, financial regulation, and more.
Our domestic policies would be required to comply with the TPP rules.
For those interested, Wikileaks has published the leaked text of the TPP trade deal, text the Obama adminsitration has refused to make public, refused to allow Americans to see. It is
Recommended Reading - The Electronic Frontier Foundation, after reading through the deal, headlined with "The Final Leaked TPP Text is All That We Feared."
THE FIRST AMENDMENT - Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
Should Congress sign off on the TPP trade deal that Barack Obama already has signed off on, then they would be directly violating the First Amendment of every single American..... and by signing off on it, Obama has already done so.
TAKE A GOOD LONG LOOK AT WHAT CHINA DOES IN THEIR COUNTRY TO SUPRESS INTERNET FREE SPEECH - Then ask yourself if that is what is coming here if they are allowed to dictate an Internet "code of conduct."
