Buh Bye Internet

President Obama is at it once again, engaging in his favorite pastime, ensuring that the United States is advancing towards non-exceptionalism at warp speed, or in this case at the speed of light, by way of fiber optic cable and the Internet

The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) of the U.S. Department of Commerce made an announcement Friday afternoon that it was relinquishing control of the administration of the Internet. It will be turning over control of the Internet’s domain naming system (DNS) that oversees Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and domain names. NTIA’s obligation includes the procedural role of administering changes to the authoritative root zone file, which is the database containing the list of names and addresses of all top-level domains.

Developed in the 1960s, the Internet grew from a Defense Department program, ARPANET, and U.S. has maintained control over certain elements since its inception. Under a privatization process that began with Bill Clinton in 1997, ICANN was created in 1998 and it was intended to eventually migrate it to international control. That day will soon be upon us as the migration has begun.

Presently, the NTIA’s responsibility for the technical system named the Internet Assignment Numbers Authority (IANA) has been contracted out to the Internet Corporation of Internet Names and Numbers (ICCAN) under a biennial contract that expires in 2015. ICANN is charged with maintaining the IP address numbering system which computers use and turning those numbers into names that humans can understand, like .com, .org., or .net. Recently, those familiar names got some company with the addition of hundreds of new name like  .ninja, .farm, .shoes, .photography, .bike, .pink, and even .wtf.

In its statement NTIA has asked ICANN to “transition key Internet domain name functions to the global multistakeholder community,” and “to convene global stakeholders to develop a proposal to transition the current role played by NTIA in the coordination of the Internet’s domain name system (DNS).

NTIA also stated that it “will not accept a proposal that replaces the NTIA role with a government-led or an inter-governmental organization solution.” It wants to be consistent with the “clear policy expressed in bipartisan resolutions of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives (S.Con.Res.50 and H.Con.Res.127), which affirmed the United States support for the multistakeholder model of Internet governance.

ICANN is expected to work with organizations directly affected, including the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), the Internet Architecture Board (IAB), the Internet Society (ISOC), the Regional Internet Registries (RIRs), top level domain name operators, VeriSign, and other interested global stakeholders.

Constitution Has Lasted 400 Years Says Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas)

Sheila Jackson Lee I am a queen and the US Constitution is 400 years old

Well, Congress was having a nice little chat amongst themselves about trying to get the President to enforce the laws, which are his executive obligation, and that some say he has forsaken, when the good gentlewoman from Texas, Democratic Congresswoman Ms. Sheila Jackson Lee, stepped up to the podium and said,

“Maybe I should offer a good thanks to the distinguished members of the majority, the Republicans, my chairman and others, for giving us an opportunity to have a deliberative constitutional discussion that reinforces the sanctity of this nation and how well it is that we have lasted some 400 years, operating under a constitution that clearly defines what is constitutional and what is not,”

Four hundred years? Did I hear that right? We’ve been operating under a Constitution for 400 years? Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) is supposed to be an educated woman. Is it possible that her Ivy League (Yale) education failed her? She purportedly has a law degree from the University of Virginia School of Law. Did her failings at Yale go undetected by her law professors? Do they even teach Constitutional law there in the home state of the man who wrote the Constitution and founded the very school from which she is alleged to have graduated?

It’s got to make you wonder what she went to law school for. Surely it wasn’t to learn about the Constitution. And surely it wasnt to discover what the Constitution clearly defines and what it does not. Sadly, in America, apparently you don’t need to know the Constitution to know the law to either legislate it, practice it, or sit in a judicial capacity. You just have to think you do. And Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) thinks she knows, she thinks she knows a lot more than she really does.

What she does know about the Constitution is what she can read from between the lines and from the invisible ink that she sees so clearly in her warped sense of juris prudence. She’s kind of like the Barney Fife of the legislative process, but in all fairness to Barney Fife that would be an insult to Barney Fife.

Fortunately, Ms Sheila Jackson Lee’s (D-TX) lesson in history held no sway and the “Enforce the Law Act of 2014” was passed.

H.R. 4138, or the “Chief Executive Who Doesn’t Faithfully Observe and Respect Congressional Enactments Needs to Get Off of His Ass and Take Care of Business Like He Should and Enforce the Law Act of 2014,” passed in the US House of Representative 233-181.

The bill now goes to the Senate where the chances of this bill passing are about as great President Obama actually obeying the law as he has not yet found that responsibility to be of his liking. However, he still does like playing golf a lot, shopping at the GAP, and long midnight strolls on the beach “alone.”
