The Obama administration will relinquish control of the internet’s “address book” to a California-based nonprofit Friday, brushing aside last-ditch pleas and a lawsuit from Republicans who say the transfer could give rogue regimes a freer hand to interfere with web access.
For 18 years, a division of the U.S. Commerce Department has worked to make sure the private sector takes the lead in coordinating the internet’s complex index of IP addresses and domain names, which allows people to access websites without typing in complex series of numbers that are hard to remember.
#BREAKING The internet infrastructure is under attack, the agency that oversees the online address book warns.

It is a good one.
"As you can see, the picture shown about 5G is pretty somber right? Then why would the Maestro tweet he wants 5G and even 6G as soon as possible? Answer: because the wall is being built!!! America is now ready! Do you see it?! He tweeted about the wall R=18 minutes after talking about 5G. Why? Because it’s Related! BOOM! The bomb has just exploded: the wall is also about protecting America from the harm of 5G! So you thought the largest Military Spending Bill of our history was only about building a physical wall at the southern border? You thought everything we know and talk about regarding 5G and how it can harm humans was going to be overlooked by POTUS?"
"... We have a lot of defensive weapons and OFFENSIVE weapons and we are NOW going to start taking advantage of them this is something they could have done sooner but they decide to wait..."
"...What we have on the books are,,,, things you wouldn't believe."

Among the fringe platforms Storyful identified were 4Chan and 8Chan, where messages appeared calling on commenters to quietly wreak havoc against Warren on social media or in the comments section under news stories.
I'm shocked that 4 and 8Chan are like that. I had NO IDEA.

If all social media is suppressing speech, maybe now we will have to send and resend emails with links to qmap and DJT tweets. 8Chan should have a source of memes to be downloaded and sent along in email chains
But I remain optimistic about your generation. Most adults were raised with the mindset that they could rely on one or two trusted intermediaries to deliver objective facts – a local newspaper, perhaps, and a favorite television news anchor.
But members of your generation take a different approach. You do not rely on any one news source. You recognize that some people who appear regularly on television – the ones who always form an opinion before they know the facts – those characters are in the entertainment business. Because you understand that, you are more skeptical, and less gullible.
I work in a town where almost everyone is obsessed with breaking news, but I unplugged the television in my office. I try not to worry too much about what a commentator may say in the next 30 minutes. Instead, our law enforcement team focuses on what it takes to keep America safe for the next 30 years, and beyond.
Last year, President Donald Trump issued a proclamation explaining that “we govern ourselves in accordance with the rule of law rather [than] … the whims of an elite few or the dictates of collective will. Through law, we have ensured liberty.”
As the President recognized, law provides the framework for freedom. At its best, law reflects moral choices; principled decisions that promote society’s best interests, and protect citizens’ fundamental rights. That is the point of the Penn motto: “Leges sine moribus vanae.” Laws without morals are useless.
During my tenure as Deputy Attorney General, we updated Department policies to reflect those principles and to create stronger incentives to uphold the law.
We also completed a comprehensive review and streamlining of other Department guidance. Our team executed a strategy to maximize the impact of our $28 billion budget and 115,000 employees. We consulted stakeholders, revised policies, and used results-driven management to build morale, cut bureaucracy, and increase efficiency. Our productivity increased more in 2018 than ever before, and crime fell.
