Gov. Palin: Surrendering America’s control of internet is a colossal foreign policy mistake

Evidently relinquishing America’s control of the internet via our Icann control of domain names was what Obama meant when he led his adoring followers in those strange, kind of creepy chants of “Yes-We-Can”. Surrendering our control of the internet is a colossal foreign policy error with long term negative repercussions for freedom. This is nothing more than a gift to authoritarian regimes who seek to stifle the freedom the internet gives to voices around the world fighting for basic human rights. No amount of Obama/liberal media spin can justify this. Here’s more on this terribly frightening Obama decision:

Here is the article by Joel B. Pollak at Breitbart.com that she linked to:

 

The Worst Thing Obama Has Done in Foreign Policy by Far

It’s time for the “manchildren” inside the Obama administration, and waving the pom-pons around it, to plug in their iPads, because they’re going to have to work overtime to defend this one. “But… but… What would Mitt Romney do?” isn’t going to cut it this time, boys. The latest foreign policy blunder by the Obama administration is by far the worst of his administration, and will cause lasting damage to U.S. interests and freedom in general.

No, it’s not the crisis in the Crimea, though that is certainly a disaster, the final nail in the coffin of the “reset” and the first battle in a new Cold War. No, it’s not the ongoing collapse of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, or the chaos and mass murder in Libya, which are on the same scale as the atrocities we intervened to prevent. It’s not even the farce of negotiations with Iran, which is pushing ahead with its nuclear program, regardless.

It’s the decision to relinquish control over Internet domain names. As of next year, by Obama administration fiat, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (Icann) will no longer be in charge. Instead control will pass to some other international body–most likely, L. Gordon Crovitz points out in today’s Wall Street Journal, the UN’s International Telecommunication Union (ITU), favored by the world’s tyrants.

Like almost everything at the UN, the ITU is controlled by authoritarian regimes such as Russia and China, who marshal voting blocs of unfree countries to drown out free ones. These are countries that want to be able to shut down their citizens’ access to the Internet, and to prevent online activism of various kinds. U.S-controlled Icann is the last defense against the kind of censorship and repression that would entrench their power indefinitely.

Why is the Obama administration giving up control over the Internet’s domain names? For one reason alone: it is embarrassed by the NSA scandal, and wishes to make amends. In a continuing pattern of craven surrender and appeasement–a stark contrast to its bullying approach to domestic opposition–the Obama administration is trying to buy goodwill by giving up a strategic asset that, Crovitz notes, is akin to control of the high seas.

Just as the U.S. Navy has made the world safe for free trade and prosperity, Icann has helped make the Internet an oasis of freedom and entrepreneurship. To give up American power on the Internet is to give up on an open Internet, period. That may be a shock to those who resent American power in any form. But it is the truth–and this is Obama’s worst foreign policy blunder, because it is so vain, so damaging, and so completely avoidable.

“W.H. pastry chef quits: ‘I don’t want to demonize cream, butter, sugar and eggs’” I love this person.
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/mar/19/white-house-pastry-chef-quits-saying-cream-and-but/

And HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY PIPER INDI GRACE! We love you!

And speaking of butter and sugar… I love getting your favorite recipes. From my last book, here’s one of mine!

Juanita’s Soft, Gooey Oatmeal Raisin White Chocolate-Chip Heaven

Now, you can have the perfect gift to give your loved ones at Christmas! It’s fun to give these away in festive packaging. These delicious little treats deserve it!

TIME TO PREPARE: 20 minutes
YIELDS: About 4 dozen cookies

2 sticks semi-hard butter (still chilled from the fridge, not softened in the microwave, and don’t overmix the butter with the sugars, eggs, and vanilla) 1 cup brown sugar
½ cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 ½ cup flour plus a smidge more
1 teaspoon baking soda plus a smidge more
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon and a few pinches of allspice
3 cups oatmeal
lots of white chocolate chips; Juanita adds some dark and semisweet chocolate chips, too. raisins, to taste (or dried cranberries to make cookies more colorfully festive) 1 cup (or so) chopped walnuts unless your kids demand “no nuts!”

1. Preheat your oven to 350º F.
2. In a large mixing bowl, mix together the butter, brown sugar, white sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt. Fold in the oatmeal, white chocolate chips, raisins, and walnuts. You can chill the cookie dough in the fridge before scooping it out with a medium-sized ice-cream scoop, but it’s not necessary. Scoop the dough onto ungreased cookie sheets.
3. Bake for about only 8 minutes.

NOTE: The cookies have to be gooey soft, almost raw in the center. They’ll harden a bit as they cool on the counter.
