I cant find where the site was for this but here is the article regarding obama's internet kill switch.


US President Barack Obama would be granted powers to seize control of and even shut down the internet under a new bill that describes the global internet as a US "national asset".

Local lobby groups and academics have rounded on the plan, saying that, rather than combat terrorists, it would actually do them "the biggest favour ever" by terrorising the rest of the world, which is now heavily reliant on cyberspace.

The proposed legislation, introduced into the US Senate by independent senator Joe Lieberman, who is chairman of the US Homeland Security committee, seeks to grant the President broad emergency powers over the internet in times of national emergency.

Titled "Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act", the bill stipulates any internet firms and providers must "immediately comply with any emergency measure or action developed" by a new section of the US Department of Homeland Security, dubbed the "National Centre for Cybersecurity and Communications".

Lobby group TechAmerica told ZDNet it worried that the bill would give the US "absolute power" over the internet and create "unintended consequences".

One of Australia's top communications experts, University of Sydney associate professor Bjorn Landfeldt, railed against the idea, saying shutting down the internet would "inflict an enormous damage on the entire world".

He said it would be like giving a single country "the right to poison the atmosphere, or poison the ocean".

"All our financial systems, all our security systems ... we're so reliant on the internet that if you shut it down there's a question of whether society will continue to operate normally anywhere in the Western world," Landfeldt said in a phone interview.

"By doing this they would do the terrorists the biggest favour ever because they would terrorise the rest of the world".

Landfeldt said the US would be the only country in the world with the ability to shut down the internet. He said such a move would be extremely difficult for the US to justify to other nations.

"Unfortunately, too much of the core of the internet resides in the US - let's put it this way, they cannot shut down machines in Australia, but they can completely isolate us and shut down certain core functions like the DNS ... they can render the internet fairly useless for the rest of the world," he said.

Senator Susan Collins, co-sponsor of the bill, has said: "We cannot afford to wait for a cyber-9/11."

Lieberman argued the bill was necessary to "preserve those networks and assets and our country and protect our people".

He said that, for all its allure, the internet could also be a "dangerous place with electronic pipelines that run directly into everything from our personal bank accounts to key infrastructure to government and industrial secrets".

US economic security, national security and public safety were now all at risk from new kinds of enemies, including "cyber warriors, cyber spies, cyber terrorists and cyber criminals".

Geordie Guy, spokesman for the online users' lobby group Electronic Frontiers Australia, said governments around the world seemed terrified of some unidentified risk that they believe the internet poses.

"The proposal is from Joe Lieberman, a repeat offender on rights versus regulation, in a bill called Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act of 2010," he said.

"One wonders which nation Senator Lieberman considers the internet an asset of, and how proposing its destruction by presidential or homeland security order protects it.

"The internet is not a national asset of the United States, nor is it a media regulation problem of Australia. It is an international network used by millions upon millions of citizens and it needs to remain free and available."

Communications Minister Stephen Conroy did not respond to calls requesting comment.

Google, one of the world's biggest internet companies, declined to comment as it was not yet official US government policy.

I say let them try to implement this ridiculous plan...you can't turn the internet into something more like a directory where they dictate what goes into it...it will be the straw that broke the camels back IMO...that is of course assuming everybody doesn't fall for yet another false flag event...

Sure they have this ability, all that is necessary is to control the large servers. China already does it. I have first hand experience of site blocking as far back as 2001.
Al Jazeera was blocked in the United States after 9-11. It is not blocked today, but after 9-11 and you wanted to get a alternate view of things you were censored. That is not freedom of the press. It is CONTROL.

This is not a question of if Will it happen it is WHEN.

Don't want to sound fatalistic, but our Congress will do as they are told by TPTB.

Internet freedom is already dead, TPTB just haven"t covered the grave.

With businesses' dependance on the web, they will have to be very carefull they don't shut down the economy too if they shut down the web.

Honestly I don't even know if this internet 2 thing would work. I think a lot of people would boycott it and raise hell. However in the unlikely event internet 2 happens and becomes popular (and the old free web dies) we have to expose it and fight it while we still can.

Call your Congressman and Senator now... REALLY?

Alex... you lost me at that point.

If the plan really is to take over the 'net then they shall achieve it.

This is not a defeatist but realist perspective. Until there is SOMETHING that people can do to really change things then the game will just roll on.

Call your Congressman and Senator now!...


I can not believe I heard that...

Please use openmesh or netsukuku for creating a new world wide web.

And please use anonymous network : kommute, anomos (anonymous bittorent), I2P ( with imule ) or Freenet;

Please do it.

Why does youtube take so long to update view counts with new videos? I don't get it. For example the view count just increased by 3000 over a period of 4 hours but I guarantee it got more than 3000 views in that time.

I noticed one thing about google and their youtube stuff. On certain youtube videos the load time is messed up like anything related to a conspiracy such as moon landings or JFK assassination. I know I can say watch a music video of katy perry without interruption, but I get interruptions from watch Jarrah White's channel.

google is getting to big for its britches. It is like they are trying to be like Walmart or something. I bet in two to three years they will merge to one company.

They could try to impliment this plan, but I am in agreement with others, I do not see it being completed successfully. You can say that China and Iran do it, but there are plenty of ways individuals can bypass all that firewalling and other security measures. Furthermore, the internet is home to hundreds of thousands, if not millions of "pirates." People who have the capability and drive to smear this plan from the get go. Just my .02, the internet is alive and well. There are far too many servers and far too many access points to the global network for it to be single-handedly controlled by any corporation(s).

I would agree with this if it was just google and verizon attempting this take over. But once the government starts teaming up with the big corporations then we're in deep deep trouble. They will get whatever they want which in this case is to shut down the alternative media because it's getting too powerful and becoming the new mainstream.

Anyways...

Well I for 1 would not pay more to go to a website i like and i would not pay if i can't go to the sites i like.

I would cancel my account as would many people and the $$$$$ loss would be a hard hit in the pockets of the "Net Grabbers" .

There is something else going on here that we can't see. I don't like it 1 bit.
