Was about to share, glad I caught yours first, s&f.

Just a note for those unaware CISA is The Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-California).





The bill now goes to a conference committee between the House of Representatives, which previously passed its own version, and the Senate. If or when that is approved, the bill would head to President Barack Obama.

Will he veto it?



Under the bill, companies would have increased liability protection when collecting and sharing user person information that could potentially be related to security threats. The proposed legislation also makes it easier to share that data with government agencies and with each other.

This caused the concern of privacy advocates, leading to delays in the bill’s journey through Capitol Hill. Several amendments to address privacy concerns were added to the bill, but they were all voted down.




Source - RT



I agree it's disappointing that a small number of senators are informed, caring enough(not paid off) and/or acting upon their votes.

Thanks for the additional information. Has Obama said what he's going to do when this comes across his desk?

I don't like this bill - I did see that Sanders voted against it, which didn't surprise me. He was also in the minority, which also doesn't surprise me (other than the non-votes category)


I hope it's a Veto by POTUS, AKA a big W for the people

Not seeing his take as of yet. In 2014 however,


When CISPA, a bill that’s widely seen as the predecessor to CISA, passed out of the House of Representatives last year, progress on the bill came to a halt thanks to Obama’s vocal opposition—the second time that the president blocked a version of the legislation.

Source

An opposing source for August of this year, says he may do otherwise;
See here

There are calls for him to veto it:


July 27, 2015

Dear President Obama,

We the undersigned civil society organizations, security experts, and academics write to urge you to strongly oppose the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2015 (CISA, S. 754). 1 We urge that you pledge to veto CISA, as you did twice during consideration of the similarly flawed Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA, H.R. 3523, H.R. 624). 2

Myself being unfamiliar with the bill, wouldn't business want to curb and limit their involvement in data mining? It seems like the potential liability would decrease by decreasing the amount of data collected. Is the concern that business would be forced to report on an ever expanding list of flagged items?

Yet another bill passed for so-called security that restricts freedom.

Anyone seeing the pattern here?

I'm sure some of the no's were just token votes to keep up the notion that there are still some honest politicians.

But there's not. Everyone's been bought.

I don't have much faith in the commander in chief to do what's right, but I sure hope he vetoes this.

So where in the hell was Rand Paul for this vote? Even symbolically attempting to block this is right up his alley no? Or is that the thing, he's only all about symbolic gestures and catchphrases...

As I said in the other thread I knew they were going to pass something!

I knew the government were going to cover a bill to pass that stripped another of your rights. Why?

Cause your government the last few weeks has brought up the notion of gun control again

Its a cover!

Yup while the government has you all clutching your guns and focusing on the 2nd amendment they strip all you other rights one by one.

Its like a doctor distracting a toddler with a lollipop why he sticks a jab into the arm.

Honnestly everytime your politicians bring up the notion of gun control they dont have any intention of implementing it. Just distracting you while they take another right away.

I have no doubt Sanders voted "Against" because he's running for president. He had his named attached to the USA Freedom Act of 2014 and then removed it from the USA Freedom Act of 2015.

If you look at the "Against" or "Not Voting" they are all currently candidates for president. Shock!? I think not.

I find Democrats use guns and republican use terrorists, both have the same result. The public gets all riled up and focused on that hot button topic and the politicians while everyone is distracted pass a controversial bill.

Sanders is just posturing. He's a socialist. Socialists are notorious for their penchant for big government. This guy is bad news.

They ALL know that most intelligent people are against all this invasive spying. And they're ALL for it. They're just playing the game. Regardless of who "wins" nothing will change. If anything it will escalate.

So.. congress just snuck CISA in to the budget that must be passed to avoid a government shutdown. There was a more detailed article from AP that I found on yahoo about it, but it kept shutting down my browser, so I found this one to share.

I am so pissed off right now. They are so worried about finding terrorists with this (not really it is more about control and dominance over the masses) but I think, and hope, that this will ironically create more domestic terrorists (or as some will see them, patriots). Not ones who will go after soft targets, but hopefully those who will target the actual enemy- enemies of the constitution, like the people who would pass this bill.
