(.)dot THIS EVERYONE . AMERICA IS TOAST IF IANA LEAVES US CONTROL (c) Carrie Devorah :
ICANN, a rave not a review, is a party that keeps on going. The ink is barely dry on Agreements. Dancing shoes are not yet unpacked before ICANN 51 celebrants were planning their next drop on ICANN's whirlwind, exhausting never ending circuit of Comments, before it is time to, exit stage left, wrestle the Internet away from the American people 's control.
Who are the "they"? One will never know that answer. The "Board" is the decider on what is publicly disseminated. Or not.
ICANN has had a presence on FLICKR since 2008 with a paltry few hits, considering. ICANN has a presence on Facebook with equally as few views. Interesting in light that ICANN seeks to control the online lives of over 7 billion people in earth.
If ICANN was a shark Tank pitch, Mr. Wonderful would be out of the deal. Barbara Corcoran would be out too because ICANN might not be a fit for QVC. Mark Cuban would be struggling to 'brand' ICANN. Cuban says he is a person kinda guy. Cuban would listen carefully to ICANN President Fadi Chehae not reveal the people Fadi is fronting. Cuban would listen to Fadi misrepresent ICANN being secure. Damon would have choked at ICANN 51s party scene. Despite, producers, video cams and all Damon would be out, most likely. Damon is a dollars dude when it comes down to it, and ICANN is adding up in a Bad Way.
The US Government put their dollars where their mouths have been, not funding ICANN in the 2015 budget, slowing down ICANN's push to pull its cash cow away from the Department of Commerce. ICANN exploded from being a $70 million dollar a year "charity" into rolling in to the hundreds of millions in 2013, with ICANN auctioning thousands of gTLDs to Registrars. ICANN has become an Investors speculative investment under the umbrella of the DoC, the Department of Commerce.
No one really has a grasp on what ICANN is. ICANN's lawyers, Jones Day, pled in DC District Court that ICANN is not the decider of its decisions. This declaration is a GAO moment waiting to happen.
GAO? You remember. They are the government agency few cared about until
the GAO made headlines with its Vegas junkets for government workers while America is in a recession. No word yet about if ICANN is submitted to the GAO for investigation. Most likely not in that heads will tumble as the con will become public. ICANN is a retirement cash cow for former NTIA workers who figured out a good thing while working on a government time and dime. Hmmm. With the millions, Croker and Cerf are raking in with each newest gTLD auction, are they collecting government pensions? Just asking.
Will ICANN submit to a GAO investigation. Will ICANN answer if ICANN is a US government entity or a non-profit as the NTIA workers set ICANN up to be. If ICANN cops to it claiming to be a non-profit then the Darshana-Leitner Law center will collect the Judgement ordered by the DC Court against .ir, Iran. If ICANN cops to be a government entity, then ICANN has a lot of explaining to do to the GAO.
ICANN's board is not big on giving answers. ICANN ceo Steve Crocket wont state where 1net.org is listed as a nonprofit.
Therein lies the magic of owning the keys to the doors of the internet. Puppetmaster ICANN creates illusory entities that exist but don't or don't exist but do .
Complicated? Not at all.
Whisper, the app, had become the hauteur trend something about a masochistic global society begging for more lack of privacy pain.
Users thought they were anonymous . The Guardian newspaper from whence Greenwald who released the Snowden leaks from, after the fact notified users they will be spied on until the day they die. Or after
In a completely unrelated matter, a daughter got back a text from the grave years after mom was buried. Ok. The daughter therapeutically kept texting her mom then one day mom texted back. It seems that O2 reassigned the dead mum's number to a new user. The new user thinking the texts were a joke finally responded "I am watching over you."
Whisper, the app, was outed to be watching over all 'posters' including government employees from afar. Whisper is located offshore in the Philippines. 100 employees are keeping data. Whisper doesnt delete, after all, blackmail in the making.
The relevancy to ICANN is whispers tld, .sh , does not exist when searched in Whois.com, ICANN's search page for tld owners. The Whois search result says .sh does not exist. But it does have to exist to be a domain online a domain. .sh must have an ISP, numbers, since .sh is a domain.
.sh can't be traced.
The reality is that ICANN isn't being forthcoming about having back door deals of ID active in collecting data on legislators. And people, globally, going beyond wiener gate and the selfie that roiled congress. The implication is not knowing his and who governed will be in charge of icann once ICANN leaves America . Will the data be abused is like asking if pigs fly or if it walks like a duck, is it a duck .
With ICANN having domain owners like perezhilton hiding addressed of service under entities like domains by proxy.com now Hiding offshore then can things get worse?
Yes. America is toast when ICANN leaves U.S. control.
It comes down to the contract and to the DC court case. ICANN's pleadings may be sealing bits own fate. Until then, ICANN is playing God, deciding who shall live and who shall die online or just be a phantom with a virtual wall.
And for all those posting online anonymously or so they thought?
.(dot) this everyone...
.madrid (c) Carrie Devorah:
How ever ICANN has managed to fly underneath the diplomatic and USTR radar is a feat worth marvelling in its chicanery when 'things' like the Keystone pipeline are held back because State, as we in the DC industry call the US Diplomatic Cadres, stepped in the middle.
That ICANN continues to fail to get beyond claims that ICANN is secure even though ICANN can, will, and will again, be hacked. Like, hello?
The language of ICANN's respect for foreign nations is a kerfluffle, profiting ICANN with its exponential rollout of gTLDS without proper oversight. Matters involving foreign governments are under oversight of multiple government agencies yet the only agency prominent in this conversation is DoC, the Department of Commerce.
The elephant in the room is the question not being asked nor answered. IS Larry Strickling, the DoC Secretary, a former NTIA employee, setting up ICANN and ICANN's desired punt of IANA to under United Nations oversight, setting his and his cronies up for their post NTIA retirement careers, in the same way Crocker and Cerf appear to have set up ICANN for their post NTIA careers.
As for (dot)Madrid? You have to be kidding. Selling .city and .country names is a recipe for fraud the global economic system will collapse from. So, no. Step away from the .City/country to save America from a diplomatic nightmare that could precipitate World War III. You ask? No one will be able to tell fast enough, with a finger on the button, if the 'hit', the fraud is coming from a real government agency or a faux entity that ICANN, America's ICANN allowed to foster....
If there was ever a time for more government involvement in anything, it is now in ICANN because in the proverbial the 'nutters are running the madhouse' scenario, it is now. Congress? Help! Do something.
