If the people of Russia allow this fool of a tyrant to continue as far as doing something like that, they deserve him.

Sorry Man !! to derail you thread..........which is not going anywhere anyways........

Here is some fodder to pacify your bitch.............

8 ways the Obama administration is blocking information:
“Day-to-day intimidation of sources is chilling”


The fight for access to public information has never been harder, Associated Press Washington Bureau Chief Sally Buzbee said recently at a joint meeting of the American Society of News Editors, the Associated Press Media Editors and the Associated Press Photo Managers. The problem extends across the entire federal government and is now trickling down to state and local governments.

Here is Buzbee’s list of eight ways the Obama administration is making it hard for journalists to find information and cover the news:

1) As the United States ramps up its fight against Islamic militants, the public can’t see any of it. News organizations can’t shoot photos or video of bombers as they take off — there are no embeds. In fact, the administration won’t even say what country the S. bombers fly from.

2) The White House once fought to get cameramen, photographers and reporters into meetings the president had with foreign leaders overseas. That access has become much rarer. Think about the message that sends other nations about how the world’s leading democracy deals with the media: Keep them out and let them use handout photos.

3) Guantanamo: The big important 9/11 trial is finally coming up. But we aren’t allowed to see most court filings in real time — even of nonclassified material. So at hearings, we can’t follow what’s happening. We don’t know what prosecutors are asking for, or what defense attorneys are arguing.

4) Information about Guantanamo that was routinely released under President George W. Bush is now kept secret. The military won’t release the number of prisoners on hunger strike or the number of assaults on guards. Photo and video coverage is virtually nonexistent.

5) Day-to-day intimidation of sources is chilling. AP’s transportation reporter’s sources say that if they are caught talking to her, they will be fired. Even if they just give her facts, about safety, for example. Government press officials say their orders are to squelch anything controversial or that makes the administration look bad.

6) One of the media — and public’s — most important legal tools, the Freedom of Information Act, is under siege. Requests for information under FOIA have become slow and expensive. Many federal agencies simply don’t respond at all in a timely manner, forcing news organizations to sue each time to force action.

7) The administration uses FOIAs as a tip service to uncover what news organizations are pursuing. Requests are now routinely forwarded to political appointees. At the agency that oversees the new health care law, for example, political appointees now handle the FOIA requests.

8) The administration is trying to control the information that state and local officials can give out. The FBI has directed local police not to disclose details about surveillance technology the police departments use to sweep up cellphone data. In some cases, federal officials have formally intervened in state open records cases, arguing for secrecy.

Internet Kill Switch Obama




Seems America Elites are not wanting the American people to know what is going on in the world, now that he controls the media and what they show I guess this was the proverbial next step in his control of the American people.


There you go fixed it for ya.

I thought the thread was going just fine, and progressing just fine. It went from the OP and discussion mounted regarding Putin's remarks, the ability to actually shut down the internet, implications of attempting to, reasons why he would do it, and progressed into free speech in itself. A lull of several hours does not equate to not going anywhere.

That said, your post of the Obama administration stifling the press from doing its job is interesting and he has been facing more and more criticism from reporters themselves, especially on lack of access and the "pushing" of stories.

So Putin is An dictator? yeah sure he is, according to your news outlets anyone that disagrees with America's domination (World occupation) is an dictator.


What do you want the Russian people have? an puppet state government like Serbia has now? or anywhere else and to be loyal to the Saudis regime influence?

Here is a better one for you...

www.motherjones.com...

Pay attention when you read it, because I don't want you to miss this...


Is it legal for the Obama administration to activate a kill switch? Yep, and kill switches aren't new. In 1918, a congressional joint resolution authorized the president to assume control of US telegraph systems, in order to operate them during World War I. Then, in 1934, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Communications Act, which decreed, "Upon proclamation by the President that there exists war or a threat of war, or a state of public peril or disaster or other national emergency, or in order to preserve the neutrality of the United States, the President, if he deems it necessary in the interest of national security or defense, may suspend or amend" both wireless radio and phone services, which means it's not clear whether this could apply to internet service (although the Federal Communications Commission has used that argument before, when deregulating internet service over telephone lines in 2005).


But I don't expect you to actually pay attention to what you read, because of course you already know it all...right?

Puppet state...do you mean like what Putin had in Ukraine with their own puppet Yanukovych?

Really, because it seems to be your specialty when it comes to threads discussing Putin and his ridiculous decisions as of late.



Here is some fodder to pacify your bitch.............


So when did this thread become about the US, and how does what we do here have any bearing whatsoever on what this thread is discussing?

Unless of course Putin is actually Obama in disguise...because if that is true then you may actually have something, but because he isn't you have nothing relevant to the topic at hand.

And honestly I am not surprised at all about it.

I think to solve 90% of the credit card hacking, we need to send Seal Team 6 after that Nigerian prince.

Hows that Failing Ukraine doing again?

Puppet State is when you have another country controlling your nation and telling those leaders on what to do.


[bYou mean like what Biden & NATO had in Ukraine with their own puppet Petro Poroshenko


Had no idea your such a huge supporter of the western Ukrainian billionaire Petro Poroshenko whom had stolen billions and hasn't returned any to the Ukrainians.

This is an act of desperation and will lead to Russian government fail. I equate Putin to Kim Jung Un. He is basically becoming a North Korean leader.

And you have proof that proves anything said is wrong? Also why would any online media defend something that could possibly affect them in a bad way, as many of those who read this are online.

But of course you thought about that...right?

They aren't defending it they are showing you what is does and how it works...


How does a kill switch work? There isn't any kind of big red button the Obama administration can push to turn off the wireless networks in the United States. Instead, there are a few ways the federal government could exercise its power to shut down and restore internet and cellphone service (see below). It's also unlikely that a "kill switch" would cause a nationwide blackout. Instead, the government is explicitly authorized to target a "localized area"—such as a bridge—or potentially an "entire metropolitan area," according to a recent Government Accountability Office report.


www.motherjones.com...

If that's what you consider defending it...so be it.

For some of us that would extend to even blowing birds out

the 'partial government shutdown' was for the White House
and Congress over here. "We argue, the people pay AND lose"

Not sure it is desperation, but if it does happen it would not bode well for Putin, as he would see a big change in his approval from the people.

I guess we will have to wait and see.
