Now Obama and his Socialists (Sen. Jay Rockefeller) Look to Control the Internet … What Happened to the First Amendment … Freedom of Speech?
GOVERNMENT CONTROL YOU CAN BELIEVE IN!!!
America, wake up and take a good look at what Obama is doing. Do you care about your civil liberties and Constitutional Rights?
This is not CHANGE … it’s a government takeover. CONTROL … IT’S ALL ABOUT CONTROL!!!
Now Obama and his minions are coming after the control of the Internet. So much for free speech. This bill would allow a President who has already shown a propensity to use the Internet to have Americans nark on fellow Americans with the email@example.com snitch site. And who will say that there is a “so-called” cyber emergency, Barack Obama? How convenient. Just what we need, more federal bureaucracies in charge of the Internet.
Internet companies and civil liberties groups were alarmed this spring when a U.S. Senate bill proposed handing the White House the power to disconnect private-sector computers from the Internet.
They’re not much happier about a revised version that aides to Sen. Jay Rockefeller, a West Virginia Democrat, have spent months drafting behind closed doors. CNET News has obtained a copy of the 55-page draft of S.773 (excerpt), which still appears to permit the president to seize temporary control of private-sector networks during a so-called cybersecurity emergency.
The new version would allow the president to “declare a cybersecurity emergency” relating to “non-governmental” computer networks and do what’s necessary to respond to the threat. Other sections of the proposal include a federal certification program for “cybersecurity professionals,” and a requirement that certain computer systems and networks in the private sector be managed by people who have been awarded that license.
So President Obama have already taken over the financial banking industry and the automotive industry. They now look to take over 1/6th of the nations economy with a twisted form of socialist, government run health care. As stated by Wizbang, the Obama gang has already professed a desire to impose the “fairness doctrine” to stifle dissenting media. This coming from the same White House that wanted fellow Americans to nark on each other and send emails of their neighbors to “firstname.lastname@example.org“. These people just don’t stop. This bill has all the signs of controlling political dissent.
Stated beautifully by Right Wing News, are not these the same people who are looking to control the Internet the same people who were “carping” at the Patriot Act and other actions by the previous GWB Administration that civil liberties were being attacked? But I guess it is different now because it is Barack Obama and Democrats doing it. These Liberals complained about library books, but now look to completely control the Internet!
How does one grant a President Executive authority when he is already in the midst of an abusive government power grab?
Now Republic says HELL NO … Call Rockefeller and voice your opposition.
We must call and jam the switchboard of Senators John Rockefeller (D-W. Virginia) (202) 224-6472 – and Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) (202) 224-5344 – and our own congress representatives and senators reminding them that if they want to keep their jobs they must say HELL NO to bills like this, or be kicked out next election, voted out of office and replaced with loyal, ethical and caring people with conscience and compassion.
