IPI Speaker Series Welcomes One Of The Most Important Conservatives You Don't Know...But Should: FCC Commissioner Robert McDowell

Among the topics to be disussed is the battle against a United Nations takeover of the Internet. The Internet may be facing its greatest threat: an attempt by nations including China and Russia seeking greater control of the Internet through the United Nations.

According to Russian President Vladimir Putin, one of the group’s ideas is to establish “international control over the Internet using the monitoring and supervisory capabilities of the ITU (International Telecommunication Union, the UN agency for information and communication technology.)

“Any attempts to expand intergovernmental powers over the Internet—no matter how incremental or seemingly innocuous—should be turned back.” – FCC Commissioner Robert McDowell
