Will bill give Obama control of Internet?


worldnetdaily.com

A pair of bills introduced in the U.S. Senate would grant the White House sweeping new powers to access private online data, regulate the cybersecurity industry and even shut down Internet traffic during a declared "cyber emergency."

Goodbye to internet freedom, now under a martial law type situation, the internet too could be shut down, stopping communications allowing people to know what is going on, limiting news to just the major media networks. I'm usually very skeptical of conspiracy theories, but this is just begging to be an abusive power...and needless at that.

I can totally see this happening. I don't understand how people who voted for him, like ME, have not seen through him by now. I regret my vote for him he is as intent on restricting our freedoms and controlling us as Bush was.

I thought Obama was going to bring our troops home, make marijuana legal, and focus on our infrastructure.

Instead he is only all about some NWO and schmoozing with foreign countries! He has given all of our money away to crooks and thieves and criminals in financial sectors, totally screwing the common man.

He is now wanting to sieze and control the net, because he does not want us(citizens) to be able to follow the current admin's deceitful practices.

Plus in putting tight control on the internet, it makes it easier to barge in and arrest bloggers and forum writers like us, to shut us up.

I am disgusted with my government and will not vote again, because this year I realized our voting system does not work, just like our government.

Someone has to put together a makeshift backup internet.

Even if it is only 28.8kbps

At least those of us who bitched about you people not voting for Ron Paul or others like him, you guys did a dousey on this country...

Remember next time someone says don't follow Presidential Idol, really take their advice..

On a side note we have talked about this since way back in 04.

Watch what the man does, and listen to what he actually says, rather than putting much faith in the frenzy. Make your own decisions, rather than letting such 'sources' as WND make them for you.

I do not regret mine yet. Obama has done some things with which I strongly disagree, but so far he is nowhere close to the evils of the Bush mis-administration.



I thought Obama was going to bring our troops home, make marijuana legal, and focus on our infrastructure.


He has been president for less than 3 months and stepped into the worst set of crap this county has seen in a good long time. Give him some time.



Instead he is only all about some NWO and schmoozing with foreign countries!


One of the Bush messes he has to clean up is our relationship with foreign countries. The WND type crowd likes to puff their chests' out and go on about "we don't need nobody, rah rah USA". That is a short sighted approach that is worthless. They also equate any compromise with a total surrender of US values or sovereignty, another bankrupt position.



He has given all of our money away to crooks and thieves and criminals in financial sectors, totally screwing the common man.


Yeah, he has not come down nearly hard enough on the crook class.



He is now wanting to sieze and control the net, because he does not want us(citizens) to be able to follow the current admin's deceitful practices.


Do you or anybody honestly think that the gov't would NOT have been able already to totally shut down the net and get whatever information they need whenever they need it? Any new laws to that effect are essentially window dressing.


Here is my experience with the manifold "Obama is a monster and is going to ruin the world!" hysteria:

When he first started running, all sorts of garbage came up about him - he's a crook, he's not from here, he's a Muslim, he lied about public financing, etc etc ad-freaking-nauseum.

I and others investigated these, and they ALL are exactly that... garbage. At this point, whenever anybody brings up more Obama-phobia, whatever the subject is requires extraordinary evidence, given the massive rate of dis-information already presented. Barring the presentation of extraordinary, very strong evidence, any new dramatic claim about him is rejected out of hand, because it is probably just more garbage.

He is my employee, and in a very tough position. I am watching his actions and positions daily. As mentioned above, there are things he is doing with which I do not agree. I do not, however, see any reason to regret my vote for him, or any reason to believe he is 1/10 as bad as the hysteria wants to make him out.

They already do have control of the Internet.

Thanks to the CALEA Act, all ISPs must cooperate with the Federal Government and it's related intelligence and legal agencies in investigative matters.

That means if the government wants them to divulge info about who's been downloading this, who's been accessing that, or e-mailing him, they have to give it up.

Read up about Mark Klein, and how he blew the whistle on the NSA's rampant monitoring of AT&T internet traffic data, without warrants and without oversight:

World Net Daily. That's okay to use as a source, but only if it's backed up with something else. They don't have a great track record for accuracy. (then again .. what 'news' sources does these days, eh?) Anyways .. get some more backup and you might have a case ...
