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.”

Quadruple Ditto.

Sweep em off the continent and out to sea.

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.

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Talks To The Dead: – He Worked On Paris Climate Deal With Long-Dead Chinese Leader

Former Vice President Joe Biden mistakenly claimed on Monday that he worked on the Paris Climate Accord with former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping — who died more than 20 years before its signing.

Joe Biden claimed tonight that he worked with Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping on the Paris Climate Accord.

Except the current Chinese President is Xi Jinping.

Deng Xiapoing left office in 1992 and has been dead for 23 years.

Biden made the gaffe while citing his accomplishments in President Barack Obama’s administration.

“One of the things I’m proudest of is getting passed, getting moved, getting in control of the Paris Climate Accord,” Biden said in a speech at the College of Charleston. “I’m the guy who came back after meeting with Deng Xiaoping and making the case that I believe China will join if we put pressure on them. We got almost 200 nations to join.”

Xiaoping served as the leader of China from 1978 until his retirement in 1992, and passed away in 1997. Xi Jinping, China’s current president, came to power 2013 and signed the country onto the 2016 agreement.

In June 2017, President Trump announced that the U.S. would withdraw from the agreement, stating that accord will “undermine the economy” and “puts [the United States] at a permanent disadvantage.”

In addition to the Xiaoping gaffe, Biden bizarrely declared in a campaign speech that he is a “candidate for the United States Senate” and that people could “vote for the other Biden” if they prefer one of his rivals.

“My name is Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate. Look me over, if you like what you see, help out. If not, vote for the other Biden,” the 77-year-old said at the First in the South Dinner.

Biden’s confusing comments come as Democrat primary candidates are scheduled to debate in Charleston Tuesday evening. The former vice president faces increasing pressure to give a standout performance as his “firewall” in the Palmetto State crumbles in the face of a surging Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). The Vermont senator is fresh off a decisive victory in Nevada caucuses on Saturday. Earlier this month, he placed first the New Hampshire primary and won the popular vote in Iowa. In a survey released Monday, the Public Policy Polling outfit said Biden leads South Carolina with 36 percent of support and Sanders is in second at 21 percent.
