Flight 370; Ukraine and Russia; Obama & The Internet 6

1. Where is Flight 370? Right now, we don’t know any better than we knew yesterday. The only thing new in the news is that Malaysian government officials are now saying that the flight was hijacked, but they don’t know who did it, or what the motives were. It is clear that the sequence of radio and satellite communications from the Boeing 777 indicate that everything did not happen at once, with the transponders being turned off separately instead at the same time as would be caused by a catastrophic event.

Plus, we now have information verifying that the airplane flew for an additional seven hours after the transponders were lost. All this indicates malicious actions, but we still are no smarter about the who, what, or why.

2. Russia has invaded the Crimea. That’s just a fact, and no amount of bad-mouthing from our Secretary of State, John Kerry, will change that. It appears that Obama is really pushing on this issue by generating warnings of sanctions against Russia. European nations, Germany included, are powerless to do anything militarily or economically at the moment. The best thing we can do is insist on elections in the Crimea monitored by representatives of several western nations, i.e., the USA, UK, Germany, France, etc. I haven’t heard Kerry or Obama talk about this, yet. In my opinion if the citizens of the Crimea want to be in the Russian orbit, they should be allowed to make that decision without outside interference. For this to happen, though, Russia must withdraw their troops.

3. Obama is trying to screw-the-pooch, again. This time he wants to hand over the business of issuing internet addresses to the United Nations. Where did our genius President get this moronic idea? The problem is not the efficient issuing of addresses or domain names, but freedom of action and cost to the internet customer. Why should we give the United Nations the keys to our bank accounts by giving them control over internet addresses? It just doesn’t make sense. That’s why I am suggesting that there is another agenda in play. Agenda 21, anybody? Control of internet addresses can eventually lead to control of internet content. Now, this is a conceivable action for Obama. Control to the United Nations, an anti-USA body if there ever was one.

  1. Yes, it is like the world is spinning out of control. Since most of us have no power to control events, we must wait until there is more definition. Appreciate you dropping by, Susan.

  2. Of these three stories, the only one which will likely affect me directly in the information about control of the Internet. Just imagine if an Islamic nation or Islamic group gets control of the web! The mind reels.

  3. Wait until the United Nations starts charging whatever they want to fund their operations. They could eventually control web content and bloggers.

  4. I sure hope not. If we can get a freedom friendly Congress, our rights can survive. The current Administration is anything but freedom friendly.
