Will the Internet soon be surrendered to freedom’s enemies?
It comes down to Hillary Clinton. If she agrees with Donald Trump that it shouldn’t happen now, Congress can yet block Barack Obama from giving up America’s control over critical Internet functions.
Senator Mitch McConnell is trying to pass a short-term funding bill before this Saturday’s start of the government’s new fiscal year. But, since Mr. Trump opposes surrendering the Internet, the Senate’s Democrats say they will block any continuing resolution that forbids this act of unilateral disarmament.
If, however, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton says she wants to decide whether this is a wise step, a sufficient number of her party’s senators will surely support her, and not President Obama.
If she declines, however, then Hillary – not just Obama – will be responsible for the serious damage done to our national security and freedoms.
