Congress Failed To STOP Obama – Now States Are Stepping In To Get The Job Done!

One of the things that makes the United States unique is our belief in the First Amendment. We (okay, most of us, anyway) believe that no matter how gross and disgusting the speech is, it should be protected under the Constitution.

Other nations and foreign bodies, not so much. That might explain why Obama is so okay with giving over the rights to the world’s largest location of free speech to the groups that would undoubtedly stifle it.

Congress has failed to stop Obama’s huge give away of the Internet, so the states have taken it upon themselves to get their fingers into the muck and do whatever they can to prevent what will undoubtedly be one of the worst deals in the history of the United States.

To do his, the Attorney Generals of Arizona, Oklahoma, Nevada and Texas have requested a federal court to prevent the Commerce Department from giving away control of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).

To explain his choice, Texas state Attorney General Ken Paxton stated the following:

“Trusting authoritarian regimes to ensure the continued freedom of the internet is lunacy. The president does not have the authority to simply give away America’s pioneering role in ensuring that the internet remains a place where free expression can flourish.”

The lawsuit aims to keep America in control of the Internet by claiming that the current plan would violate the Constitution, specifically the property clause which states that the government cannot relinquish government property without the express approval of Congress.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz has been a leader in sounding the alarm on this terrible trade deal.

“Protecting free speech online should be an issue that brings Republicans and Democrats together. It’s an issue the American people overwhelmingly agree with and they expect us to defend internet freedom. That didn’t happen in the Senate’s continuing resolution and I think that was deeply unfortunate.”

Without a doubt, this could possibly mean the complete shut down of certain ideologies, religions, political views, etc.

Progressives on both sides of the aisle are probably rubbing their little hands together and cackling over a round table covered in candles, but those of us who believe in the Constitution and the protections given to us by our Creator will do anything it takes to prevent our freedom of speech and expression from being stifled. Let’s hope the states can prevent this from going through.
