Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) plans to introduce legislation to prevent a “takeover” of the Internet by the United Nations or another government regime.

Speaking Monday at Google’s office in Washington, the possible presidential contender said he will introduce legislation to codify U.S. support of an open Internet as other countries attempt to control its growth.

“Since the Web is worldwide — and since it has proven such an effective catalyst for pro-democratic revolution — it has become a battleground that many fight to control,” he said.

Rubio pointed to 42 countries that limit the Internet within their borders and “now wish to take this further by exerting control over the way the Internet is governed and regulated internationally.”

“Many governments are lobbying for regulatory control by the United Nations or a governmental regime,” he said, and “opposing this takeover and preserving Internet freedom must be a top national priority.”

The UN  stated in the past that they wanted Obama to hand control of the internet to them.

Before libs scream foul at Ted Cruz for this.  please tweet the last link with the hashtag #TedCruzIsRight

We absolutely have to put Americans in the White House and the sooner the better.  We also need to "invite" muslims to return to their nation of origin.  If we don't, when they feel that they can, they will start killing "infidels" Christians and Jews.  We need a change in attitude.  No more voting if you are on welfare, including illegals. 

Not if we get them first.

Its a dirty shame the way the elected, officials are making us have to fight for our wrights, and we pay them to do so. the real enemy is the politicians. and the people that are allowing the undesirables in this country. legally or not, if I was a corrupt politician I would quit now, if one patriot dies, I believe the only thing that will stop them, is when all targets are down.

Oren: you no, you talked about lawyers, look what those sick freak lawyers did with Obama care. they used our money, and turned against us. they fooled the supreme court, with that rubbish. all those people new you don't need that many pages for a health care bill.  on both sides, I think they are all wolfs, in sheep clothing.

Bryan, I agree!  People who are "on the dole" should not be able to vote!  But in order to pull that off, someone has to be computer literate and a bit more than competent!  This would undoubtedly be a government employee, and they would have to have the mindset of a Republican because the Democrats want as many folks as possible to vote, even if it is illegal.

Do you know of any current government employee who can think straight?

Oren, the trouble with what you said, is that this "openly lazy" attitude is what Obama wants for the American lifestyle!

As with all groups, you have the truly inept and lazy, unethical people making the headlines, and giving the public the appearance that those in their profession are just like the "lazy and inept" employee, when, in fact, there are many good, hard working employees that have a good work ethic and do their best at their jobs.

Blanket statements are an unfair and unjustified indictment on the whole group.

OMG!!! Ruth Bader Ginsburg Voted Best Real-Life Hero At MTV Awards

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Monday was crowned the best real-life hero at the MTV Movie & TV Awards.

The 86-year old judge — whose 2015 biopic The Notorious RBG help cement her as a cultural icon among Liberals — beat out tennis star Serena Williams, WWE wrestler Roman Reigns, and comedian Hannah Gadsby to take him the award.

Though it wasn’t a clean sweep for Ginsburg last night.

The RGB documentary lost the “Best Fight” category for “Ruth Bader Ginsburg vs. Inequality” to “Captain Marvel vs. Minn-Erva.”

The justice was absent from the ceremony in Santa Monica, California.

Last December, Ginsburg had surgery to remove cancerous growths on her left lung. She was released from the hospital in New York four days later and recuperated at home.

Earlier this year, Ginsburg missed three days of arguments, the first time that’s happened since she joined the court in 1993. Still, she was allowed to participate using court briefs and transcripts.

Ginsburg has had two previous bouts with cancer, in 1999 and 10 years later.

Flashback: Ruth Bader Ginsburg: A Pregnant Woman Is Not A ‘Mother’

Celebrated liberal U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg argued in an opinion released Tuesday that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.”

“[A] woman who exercises her constitutionally protected right to terminate a pregnancy is not a ‘mother’,” Ginsburg wrote in a footnote, which in turn responded to another footnote in the 20-page concurring opinion by Justice Clarence Thomas in the Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky Inc. case.

As Breitbart News’ legal editor Ken Klukowski reported, the case concerned a law signed by then-Governor (now Vice President) Mike Pence of Indiana in 2016, which required that the remains of an aborted fetus (or baby) be disposed of by cremation or burial. The law also prohibited abortion on the basis of sex, race, or disability alone.

The Court upheld the first part of the law, but declined to consider the selective-abortion ban until more appellate courts had ruled on it.

In his lengthy opinion — which delighted pro-life advocates, and distressed pro-choice activists — Thomas wrote that “this law and other laws like it promote a State’s compelling interest in preventing abortion from becoming a tool of modern-day eugenics.” He traced the racist and eugenicist beliefs of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, and warned that the Court would one day need to wrestle with abortion as form of racial discrimination.

In a footnote, Thomas attacked Ginsberg’s dissenting opinion, which argued the Court should not have deferred to the legal standard used by the litigants in the lower courts, but should have subjected the Indiana law to a more difficult standard instead, since it impacted “the right of [a] woman” to an abortion.

Ginsburg cited no legal authority for her claim that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.” The claim that a fetus is not a child is central to pro-choice arguments.
