UN wants to regulate USA telecom...??????????

From Democracy Now org

The Obama administration has confirmed it will oppose any proposal to hand regulatory control of the internet to the United Nations. Proposals have circulated to bring the internet under U.N. auspices at a conference of the International Telecommunications Regulations in Dubai later this year. But in a new position paper, the United States said it would reject U.N. authority and continue with its current system of oversight by the Department of Commerce.

for those about to summon god(s) pfffft....

digital feudalism is upon us.. not foolish thoughts of rapture

The Senate has defeated a revised version of the Obama administration-backed Cybersecurity Act, failing to reach the 60 votes needed for passage. The measure would have directed the Department of Homeland Security to conduct cybersecurity risk assessments of critical infrastructure and carry out responses. The bill had been updated to reflect a number of privacy concerns after President Obama threatened a veto earlier this year. The new provisions called for annual disclosures of the information collected by government agencies and would granted U.S. citizens to sue the government in the case of violations.

The Obama administration has invoked 'national security' to block suits and stonewall investigations even more than Bush.
