By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Policy. The Federal Government must have the ability to communicate at all times and under all circumstances to carry out its most critical and time sensitive missions. Survivable, resilient, enduring, and effective communications, both domestic and international, are essential to enable the executive branch to communicate within itself and with: the legislative and judicial branches; State, local, territorial, and tribal governments; private sector entities; and the public, allies, and other nations.
..... Sec. 5.2. The Secretary of Homeland Security shall: (a) oversee the development, testing, implementation, and sustainment of NS/EP communications, including: communications that support Continuity of Government; Federal, State, local, territorial, and tribal emergency preparedness and response communications; non-military executive branch communications systems; critical infrastructure protection networks; and non-military communications networks, particularly with respect to prioritization and restoration; .... (e) satisfy priority communications requirements through the use of commercial, Government, and privately owned communications resources, when appropriate."


This can only mean one thing. There is enough strife out here in the Internet against Obama that he is about to issue orders to take down the internet and effectively HIDE what goes on afterward from the rest of the world.
This is not a conspiracy theory. This is a bonafide fact. The October Surprise is out of the bag.

Your quoted language resembles a contingency plan. In the event that government communication is interrupted, they can seize private communication equipment for the continuity of government services.

I think the internet is safe for now.

Maybe President Obama is just making legal...what has been happening for quite some time now.

The White House has released a new Executive Order seeking to ensure the continuity of government communications during a national emergency. The Executive Order grants new powers to the Department of Homeland Security, including the ability to collect certain public communications information. Under the Executive Order the White House has also granted the Department the authority to seize private facilities when necessary, effectively shutting down or limiting civilian communications. In 2011, Congress considered similar provisions in cybersecurity legislation, which would have allowed the government to disconnect communications traffic in times of national security. Following public protest, congress abandoned the proposal. For more information, see EPIC: Cybersecurity Privacy Practical Implications.


That's right go around Congress with an Executive Order...We need to start a list of Obama's Executive Orders unless there is one already...It seems like Mr. President is issuing Executive Orders left and right....lately.

While the internet remains ON for now, preparation for TURNING IT OFF in the manner described, should not be LEGAL by Executive Order. Congress should make that determination in the event of a National Emergency. The President has over stepped his authority by trying to legislate by power of the Executive Order. That is a NO NO!

Have you ever looked into past executive orders? Presidents for decades have been issuing executive orders allowing government to take control of whatever they wish in a national emergency. This does not indicate any imminent threat to the internet, is just highlights a long standing issue with an overreaching government.

A no-no???

Making sure people in a disaster area have communications is a no-no???

How dare anyone interrupt my download of Glee! /sarcasm

How selfish can one be?

Seems like everything is being done by 'executive order' these days.
It is a great word/phrase.

Language is everything.
You can do whatever in the world you want to do, as long as you give what you're doing a flowery name and define that name with a definition that is completely opposite of what you're doing.

George O was very familiar with this concept.
It is called Newspeak.

That is why we have the 'Department of Homeland Security'.
Real name - Department of "Homeland Oppression".

I guess good ol' George O knew his # hu?

Ministry of enforcing loayaly to the party
through fear, a repressive apparatus, and brainwashing becomes.......
The Ministry of Love. Also see Department of Homeland Security.


The ministry that is involoved in perpetual war and violence would of course be called
The Ministry of Peace.
What flowery names.

Have fun with your "Executive Privliges" sir.
I have some privlidges of my own and they are just as executive.

News and TV is already controlled.
Internet is next and now.
Books later.

But by then the generation will be autistic mouthbreathers indoctrinated and poisoned by Big Brother. They will have unwavering loyalty to their master.

US President Barack Obama quietly signed his name to an Executive Order on Friday, allowing the White House to control all private communications in the country in the name of national security.

President Obama released his latest Executive Order on Friday, July 6, a 2,205-word statement offered as the “Assignment of National Security and Emergency Preparedness Communications Functions.” And although the president chose not to commemorate the signing with much fanfare, the powers he provides to himself and the federal government under the latest order are among the most far-reaching yet of any of his executive decisions.

On the government’s official website for the National Communications Systems, the government explains that that “infrastructure includes wireline, wireless, satellite, cable, and broadcasting, and provides the transport networks that support the Internet and other key information systems,” suggesting that the president has indeed effectively just allowed himself to control the country’s Internet access.

The biggest threat to FREEDOM is the removal of it in bits and pieces.
They have been on this line since George Bush Sr. was President.
They are finishing the "FINAL" phases of it so that they can control anything and everything here.
Once they control the internet, no one outside this country will know what's going on inside it.
We have seen these things before in other countries with internal strife. America will be amongst them.
With all they have now done, it will be easier to take complete control.

I wonder when they're going to shut this site down. If that occurs, perhaps some of us are on to something. Either way, the quote 'sounds' like a contingency plan in case communications failure for the government, but it's vague and could also mean another legal weapon to quell dissidents.

Why don't we just go ahead and start putting the euphemistic language aside and start calling
"Executive Order" what it is actually becoming....."The King's Decree"

I'm going with the latter. With the turmoil around the world I can foresee, not that I agree or disagree, but I can foresee domestic upheaval. In fact, I have a hard time being able to believe we come out of this powder keg with out nation wide dissent. What will cause it, I don't know for sure, but here's a few of the situations that can cause this:

1. Another war. America isn't ready for another war.

Even the right is sick of them. The problem here is that typically in the past this is the philosophical demographic that in large part volunteers to join our armed forces. Recently, for some reason they haven't been and recruiting is at an all time low, and military morale even lower. Never the less, reluctant soldiers will be sent, they will die in numbers we haven't experienced since Vietnam, and quite possibly even Normandy, and all will be outraged.

The Occupy Movement leaders wants another war. The leaders of Occupy want one thing and the end justifies their means, and the one thing they really want, larger crowds. A war will exponentially increase their numbers, and their numbers will embolden the brash behavior they've already exhibited among their small crowds.

The Police will be over run. Local police enforcement in major cities will be inundated, state guard and federal troops will be brought in. Checkpoints and curfews will be enforced in all major cities by these soldiers.

The Tea Party types will begin to bear arms openly. Soon many of them will not stand for the "Show me your papers" check points.

Well, you can see how the scenario goes. Possible war situations that would drag US Soldiers in include:
Syria attacks our NATO ally, Turkey.
The Israeli/Iran boondoggle finally sparks the powder in the keg.
North Korea attacks South Korea.
In any of these scenarios the possibility is high that:
Russia and China either via proxy or in direct conflict faces off against North America and Europe.

2. The Euro crumbles, sending the dollar (we own most of the debt on the Euro) into a tailspin.

This would send the cost of oil through the roof.

Food costs will more than quadruple in such a scenario, quickly. One EBT recharge might buy a family enough food for one decent dinner. Many will steal very quickly to simply survive. Of those who do have jobs, their income will not be able to support their family's most basic needs and they will within weeks, maybe days, begin to barter their physical materials; whatever work they did have they won't tend to it. Garbage will begin to pile up. Pipes will remain is disrepair. Electric transformers will be un-maintained. City water in many areas will become impotable for prolonged periods of time. Quite simply, the people we all depend on will have better things to do.

The federal government will come to the aid of the people, and should the people accept the handouts, that system will remain with us for generations. The feds will place those who won't work, or perform at a lazy production rate, to forced labor camps. Those who dissent will either be neutralized or sent to re-education camps (aka rehab). All of this will continue for generations.

3. While you have been working hard and spending time discussing those powerful mysterious people thought to be conspiring, a foreign enemy with a will, drive, and plan has infiltrated our nation across our porous borders. The security you thought you had was false, and over the last ten years thousands of operatives have streamed over our borders and in lock step unison unleash acts of terror nation wide.

4. The above 3 things all happen with in the same month.



In any of the cases above, I assure you, the federal government will be hiding the truth from you and telling you a fairy tale about how the recession is over and things are actually better. Well they won't tell you that, you'll be dead, that's what they will be telling your children and then their children.

The odd thing is, if any of the above happened, your internet access would probably wind up killing itself pretty quickly anyways as there would be very few who would think it important to mind the data centers. The government will wind up doing it for you though.

Oh no Obama is taking over the internet!!!! Come on people. Ignore the bs title and do a little reading. Its not even a new order its just another update. The same thing has been around since the 1930s to make sure the government and the people can communicate during a crisis. The government gave us the internet and have nothing but benefited from it.
