Looks like we may need to hold another internet-wide blackout protest. CISPA is coming back with a vengeance. These people will not stop will they?


Yesterday, U.S. congressmen Mike Rogers (R-MI) and Dutch Ruppersberger (D-MD) announced before the House that they are planning to revive the controversial Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protect Act (CISPA) and work closely with the White House to ensure its passage sometime later this year. The unpopular legislative attempt at ramping up cybersecurity regulations was tabled indefinitely last year in August after it was shot down in a Senate vote, but some had raised the possibility that it could've been delayed by the lawmakers to avoid having to make a decision right before the elections.

Remember the Internet blackouts over SOPA and PIPA last year?
Probably. What you might not remember is the other online legislation that nearly passed: the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act. After being approved by the House of Representatives, the Senate failed to pass CISPA in 2012 after similar protests of Internet users everywhere.
But CISPA’s authors, Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) and Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-Awesome Name), made good on a promise and announced Wednesday that the bill will be reintroduced in 2013.

Any bill that promotes loss of freedom and tyranny never goes away. It is simply pulled back, re worded attached to a tragedy if possible and re spun by MSM and eloquent politicians.

If that doesn't work, it is attached at the back end of another completely non related piece of legislation and most likely passed at 2am in the morning.

The ever increasing agenda that is being pushed is not going to magically stop. The time to say no is before you loose the freedom, not after as that is rarely every a successful battle. Thanks for the thread and the information!

We already said no, universally and relatively loudly. I suppose these kinds of things just take constant vigilance, all the time, from cradle to grave.

I think we just have to start doing it on Mon, Wed and Fri every week until we die. They don't seem to get it any other way do they?

Maybe one day our representatives will actually represent the people again, but until that day returns we can badger them until they hear us, or get annoyed enough to pay attention.

What doesn't kill the internet only makes it stronger.

The person to get on the internet's "side" is Hillary Clinton, who wants to be U.S president. Someone needs to get her both on the record opposing this and have her actively asking, or more accurately, demanding, that Democrats not vote for this.

The question is what would she do once in office? We saw Obama promise to close Gitmo and it's still there. He also said he didn't believe in the healthcare mandate (one of his biggest criticisms of Clinton in the 2008 primary) and the second he took office it was like "Just kidding, screw you America."

Sure, she could get on our side on this one but I wouldn't buy it.

Buch said "Read my lips, no new taxes". Obama said "I'm not coming for your guns, I'm not going to take your shotgun, I'm not going to take your rifle, I'm not going to take your handgun".

Water is wet and all politicians lie, that is precisely what they do for a living. That is why presidents like JFK don't last very long. Left, right, conservative or liberal, agendas are blind to right or left political ideology as it pertains to America.

What we are seeing now are global agendas, more influence and pressure from the UN and major foreign debt holders. Corporate lobbyists and international banking institutions.

They will continue to try to pass draconian legislation and when it comes to the internet, I can guarantee it will become fierce very soon. Maybe they will claim a major security breach by Anon or another foreign power and declare that the US is under cyber attack and then claim the legislation is being enacted to protect our national security and interest. Most will believe this is true, after all, we thought the drones were for terrorists overseas right?

Well the power elite used our money to create the global web, they feel it is theirs to help destroy and enslave us. After all everything they steal and lie about is theirs...so they think.

All power from the global elite is based on lies and death, that is their claim to power. Simple tricks that just keep on working, if one is up to the evil, which will pay off...in some way.

But Porno shouldn't be allowed on the web, but its an evil design, so what you going to do?

I guess God will take care of it in His time.

Just look at that list and the overwhelming American Republican support for CISPA. Anyone in the U.S. who cares for the internet should think twice (or three times) about calling themselves a Republican, and actively oppose them in local and national elections. The dislike of Obama is strong on some sectors of ATS, yet those same people who oppose Obama and his supporters will hopefully look at this issue - a direct frontal attack on the internet - and see that it's GOP leaders who overtly want to control as much of the free flow of information in the world as they can. Some elected Democratic leaders do also, but at least they are more likely to bend to the pressure of their supporters on this issue..

The computer, tablet, and smart cell-phone manufacturers may have something to say on the subject. If internet freedoms are overtly curtailed, sales will fall... guaranteed.

Because once it starts in the US... If successful, filtering will spread to other countries.

That would be disastrous to any manufacturer that makes internet related communication devices.

Also, other big companies like Microsoft, Google, EBay, Wikipedia, Britannica Online, News Outlets with internet portals, Facebook... etc.. (the list here can get very, very long...) may raise their collective eyebrows. They probably would not be too happy about it, IMO.

So... unless there's an unprecedented emergency that calls for a justified severe curtailing of internet use... I don't see this as being an issue of concern.

Thanks for the thread Silent. This subject needs to be taken seriously.

Everyday it appears that our government is slowly trying to take away the freedoms of the people. Everyday they become more of a TYRANNICAL power to the people and everyday some people are finally opening his/her eyes to what is going on.

I hope the masses don't remain naive to what is really happening to our once FREE nation. If this idea is pushed into effect I will lose hope for a lot of people.

Hence the blackouts last time. I know Google gets a lot of suspicion directed their way on this site for a variety of reasons, but you have to hand it to them - they were one of the most influential parties in making sure SOPA and last year's CISPA didn't pass. Facebook was nowhere to be found, which makes them highly suspect, in my opinion.

Support does tend to be more common among republicans, for some reason. But I wouldn't classify it as a polarized issue, because as with all liberty issues there is support and opposition across the board. I remember Romney, of all people, saying in the GOP debates that he opposed SOPA. Of course his campaign would have been destroyed had he said otherwise, so I'm not convinced it was a genuine statement.

Time to kick the tires and light the fires all ready, again. Its funny how both party's only agree when it comes to one thing, stripping us of our rights and civil liberties. The agenda will continue to have legs until we physically throw them out ... I mean literally. It's why they are scrambling for the guns.
we have traitors in our midst

After all this, and your hard work I had to chime in, neighbor.
At times the saddest waste is attempting to awaken those
who are deliberately asleep. a twenty-year pedestrian
ps much more than luck on your paperwork breaking through...
