Obama Seeks Power To Shut Down the Internet and Access All Private Data

obama-communization-of-america

Yes, you read the Article Title correctly.

No, it is not a joke and yes, I am absolutely dead serious.

What does Obama & Co fear most?

Opposition and Freedom of

Speech/Information.

If Obama (George Soros) could shut down the

Power of Public Opposition, their Takeover is

Assured.

The joint bipartisan grassroots Tea Party Movement is evidence of the power of ‘We the

People’ to stop this Dictatorial Takeover

Power Struggle.

…it is not the Republican Party who stands in their way.


‘We the People’ ourselves are the only power
who can

and who will

stand in their way.

They already have control of the majority of Media outlets but do not have control of the flow of Information between ‘We the People’ and our grass roots networking on the Internet, such as the blog you are reading right now.


How is this dictatorial power grab of absolute control of the free flow of information and absolute and complete violation of privacy going to happen?


The old bait and switch use of fear mongering to scare people into going along with Congress to enact the…


Cybersecurity Act of 2009 (S.773)
http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-s773/show

A bill to ensure the continued free flow of commerce within the United States and with its global trading partners through secure cyber communications, to provide for the continued development and exploitation of the Internet and intranet communications for such purposes, to provide for the development of a cadre of information technology specialists to improve and maintain effective cybersecurity defenses against disruption, and for other purposes.

Oh… and a companion bill to complete the process of an absolute Obama Internet Dictatorship…

S.778 – A bill to establish, within the Executive Office of the President, the Office of National Cybersecurity Advisor.
http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-s778/show

Folks, these two bills were introduced on April 1, 2009 and the fools will be the ones of us who allow these bills to go through. You can believe that Obama & Co are planning a media blitz to scare people into buying off on this essential tool of Dictatorship.

What is being said around the Internet…

Should Obama Control the Internet?

A new bill would give the President emergency authority to halt web traffic and access private data.

—By Steve Aquino 173 Comments
Thu April 2, 2009 12:33 PM PST

Should President Obama have the power to shut down domestic Internet traffic during a state of emergency?

Senators John Rockefeller (D-W. Va.) and Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) think so. On Wednesday they introduced a bill to establish the Office of the National Cybersecurity Advisor—an arm of the executive branch that would have vast power to monitor and control Internet traffic to protect against threats to critical cyber infrastructure. That broad power is rattling some civil libertarians.

The Cybersecurity Act of 2009 (PDF) gives the president the ability to “declare a cybersecurity emergency” and shut down or limit Internet traffic in any “critical” information network “in the interest of national security.” The bill does not define a critical information network or a cybersecurity emergency. That definition would be left to the president.

The bill does not only add to the power of the president. It also grants the Secretary of Commerce “access to all relevant data concerning [critical] networks without regard to any provision of law, regulation, rule, or policy restricting such access.” This means he or she can monitor or access any data on private or public networks without regard to privacy laws.

Rockefeller made cybersecurity one of his key issues as a member of the Senate intelligence committee, which he chaired until last year. He now heads the Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation, which will take up this bill.

“We must protect our critical infrastructure at all costs—from our water to our electricity, to banking, traffic lights and electronic health records—the list goes on,” Rockefeller said in a statement. Snowe echoed her colleague, saying, “if we fail to take swift action, we, regrettably, risk a cyber-Katrina.”

But the wide powers outlined in the Rockefeller-Snowe legislation has at least one Internet advocacy group worried. “The cybersecurity threat is real,” says Leslie Harris, head of the Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT), “but such a drastic federal intervention in private communications technology and networks could harm both security and privacy.”

The bill could undermine the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA), says CDT senior counsel Greg Nojeim. That law, enacted in the mid ’80s, requires law enforcement seek a warrant before tapping in to data transmissions between computers.

“It’s an incredibly broad authority,” Nojeim says, pointing out that existing privacy laws “could fall to this authority.”

Jennifer Granick, civil liberties director at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, says that granting such power to the Commerce secretary could actually cause networks to be less safe. When one person can access all information on a network, “it makes it more vulnerable to intruders,” Granick says. “You’ve basically established a path for the bad guys to skip down.”

The bill’s scope, she says, is “contrary to what the Constitution promises us.” That’s because of the impact it could have on Internet users’ privacy rights: If the Commerce Department uncovers evidence of illegal activity when accessing “critical” networks, that information could be used against a potential defendant, even if the department never had the intent to find incriminating evidence. And this might violate the Constitutional protection against searches without cause.

“Once information is accessed, it can be used for whatever purpose, no matter the original reason for accessing something,” Granick says. “Who’s interested in this [bill]? Law enforcement and people in the security industry who want to ensure more government dollars go to them.”

Nojeim, though, thinks it’s possible the bill’s powers could be trimmed as it moves through Congress. “We will be working with them to clarify just what is needed and how to accomplish that,” he says. “We’re hopeful that some of the very broad powers that the bill would confer won’t be included.”

New Bill Would Let Obama Snoop In Computer Files

April 10, 2009 11:47 AM ET | Matthew Bandyk

Just because George W. Bush is out of office doesn’t mean the days of warrantless searches are over. A bill recently introduced to Congress–the Cybersecurity Act of 2009–has civil libertarians angry over a few provisions that would give the executive branch new powers to control the private sector in cyberspace.

The bill has many components, but there are two elements in particular that are stirring up controversy.

The first element makes businesses a particular target.  According to Computerworld, it would allow the president to “classify any corporate network as a piece of critical infrastructure” and shut it down at will.

Here’s the second element as reported by eWeek:

The legislation also calls for a public-private clearinghouse for cyber-threats and vulnerability information under Department of Commerce authority. The Secretary of Commerce would have the authority to access “all relevant data concerning such networks without regard to any provision of law, regulation, rule or policy restricting such access.”

A Washington Examiner editorial interprets this provision to be tantamount to warrantless snooping:

This amounts to warrantless wiretaps on steroids, directed at U.S. citizens instead of foreign terrorists.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Why have I referenced two Liberal Websites on this subject? Because even Liberals who are are not Socialist/Marxists see this as a Severe and Destructive Threat to the United States of America.

Now… What are you going to do?

Well, if I were you… I would be sending links out to every person I know to give them a heads up on this situation and additionally contact every single Tea Party Organizer/Web Site to start adding this issue as a Front Line Matter of PROTEST!!!

Time is short.

Many Tea Parties are planned for April 15th and the word must go out in all directions across the Internet to as many people as possible as quickly as possible.

Do your homework on this!

I have added what I believe to be very solid evidence, and motives, for this takeover of our power to communicate via the Internet we use to voice our just and bipartisan opposition, thus our power to control a wayward Executive Branch and Legislative Branch which hell bent on a Socialist Takeover in spite of our wishes.

And to those Independents, Democrats, and Republicans who innocently voted for Obama hoping he was the change America needed…

Are you going to wake up now or are you going to sleep through this hoping your vote was not a mistake? What is it going to take?

    I don’t know that people will get off their asses and make Congress cease and desist from this insanity or not.

    But what ever happens… these times will likely go down in history as one of two things…

    Either the loss of Democracy and Sovereignty of America or the period when Americans were forced by Obama to stand up and prevent the destruction of American Democracy and Sovereignty.

    Obama is a smiley faced figure head lipsticked politician… the actual Dark Lord lurking in the shadows is George Soros.

  2. rosehips says:

    Good morning VF. I’m glad you posted this. It’s an important issue and will be debated heatedly, I’m sure. The threats out there are real. It has concerned me for many years that our country has become so vulnerable to attack by hackers who could bring us to our knees. I’m surprised it hasn’t already been done.
    I’m glad at least that my former governor, Gary Locke, is the Commerce Secretary. He is an honorable man and I trust him.
    The ulterior motives you speculate about are concerns that need to be addressed and preventive measures must be added to any bill to make sure that this will not allow the government to infringe on our privacy. But we must be aware that those very same freedoms are enjoyed by evil people who are conspiring as we blog to undermine our nation.
    Starting dialogue about it is a good way to prevent anything from slipping through that might endanger our freedoms.
    With that said, I think I will look into one of them government jobs where I can access all the computer files of anyone I suspect of being a spy. I think I’ll start with insanejane’s Commodore 64. lol!

  3. rosehips says:

    p.s. Was your birthday good?

  4. rosehips says:

    jane has gotten an early start of attacking your bday post VF. You have to get up early to keep the trolls in line. HAHAHA

  5. VotingFemale says:

    It was good dear, thanks for asking!

    And when Obama forces all companies to create a Government back door into their private data… the door is created for hackers to access across the country.

  6. VotingFemale says:

    Lol @ JaneInSane!!!

    She is now realizing she has outed herself big time and does not have the intelligence God gave a Duck to cease and desist. Thus, she continues to magnify herself as another Lefter Troll who was allowed to come back to iReport after her ban for putting Hexes on people and threatening them.

    What a joke of an intellect JaneInSane aka MaineAgent has!

  7. VotingFemale says:

    And Rose? Your lack of concern over theses two bills is frightening… I put in an article from two Leftist sites who are upset over these two bills.

    I hope your initial response is simply a knee-jerk reaction to what you think is my knee-jerk reaction to these two bills.

    What was your assessment of Bush’s Patriot Act and it’s implications and effects?

  8. rosehips says:

    vf, I am concerned but I am just more trusting of Obama’s motives. I think there is a real need to prevent cyber-attacks but I am concerned about our privacy. Personally, there isn’t anything I do that I fear the government knowing about, so that isn’t a personal concern. But there may come a day when I think otherwise. I’ll take a look at the articles. I highly regard Mother Jones.
    The Patriot Act? I’m against it.

  9. yorksnbeans says:

    VF – Although, I do agree that government should not have free will over privacy, I do feel there should be some government intervention and control for sake of security. I do have to also say that the title to this post is off-base IMO. I know how you feel about our President, but this bill does not have his signature on it, at least not yet, so implying that it is coming from him is misleading. (Man, I’ll probably be whipped for this comment!) Although, I am glad you have brought this bill to my attention. Thank you for that, VF!

  10. rosehips says:

    Although I don’t care if the government knows what I am reading, I oppose them compelling libraries to provide them with a list of books I’ve checked out.
    I have a cd of “The Anarchist’s Cookbook” . Does this make me a terrorist? It could appear that way.
    I think I’ll order some castor beans for my garden and see if I can raise any suspicion. Doesn’t the government already monitor what we do on the computer and telephone. I believe they have filters and red flags go up when we use certain words. They will probably be flocking here now after I used the words “castor beans” Maybe I should misspell it to throw them off?

  11. rosehips says:

    good morning beans!

  12. m2elena says:

    I was reading about this the other day…. hm yes.
    Happy Easter y’all!

    hey m2, happy easter! Did elena get an easter basket?

    The Chinese control their internet, you can’t even do a search for Tiananmen Square.

    Oh lord yes… and we did the church thing last night which was really long. She got some toys and a puppet, cause she’s still to little to eat candy.. (She’ll be 2 in June).

  17. m2elena says:

    We did an egg hunt yesterday afternoon, and things are blooming here. Love the spring blooms!

  18. VotingFemale says:

    I would not dream of whipping you dear.

    Obama is a figure head… part of the power structure in force and power. Thus his name carries the power of attention getting.

    Just as Bush did not author the Patriot Act… his name is the applied ‘label’ to the Patriot Act.

    I don’t have anything to hide in the way of personal private information. But that is beside the point of giving the government Carte Blanche access to all corporate and personal information without a warrant. A warrantless search is against the Constitution and that was the problem I had with that damn Patriot Act that gave warrantless access to wiretapping any and every person at the government’s whim.

    Think of it this way… did you trust Bush and the GOP with limitless power?

    People aren’t outraged over “usurped” freedoms and private/individual liberty if the media doesn’t tell them to be “outraged”… that’s just how it works, unfortunately.

  20. rosehips says:

    a puppet? very cool. I hope Jonah is not disappointed that the Easter bunny didn’t stop by here last night. Maybe it’s because of all the teenagers who were hanging around. haha
    Did you say you were Catholic? I was raised a Catholic and found Mass boring…..honk-shew.

  21. m2elena says:

    Clinton’s Echelon Program in the 90′s was more invasive than the Warrentless Wiretapping on Foreign calls by the Bush Administration. Not taking sides, just making a comment.

  22. m2elena says:

    yah, Catholic. It’s a very ritualistic sector… as opposed to the more bible-thumping Baptist/Evangelist.

    The nuns are always joking that they never read the bible or half-believe it, and beer is a big deal. I’m cool with it!

  23. m2elena says:

    like a little lamby puppet… and she got some eggs with Fisher Price Little People in them..

  24. VotingFemale says:

    Morning M2 and Happy Easter to you and Everyone!!!

    Imagine Bush controlling Google…

    Imagine Obama controlling Google…

    Imagine the power of control over whether or not Google and other search engines are shut down or modified to prevent searches on Bush or Obama or on Democratic Party or the Republican Party.

    I have no inherent trust in people in power of either the GOP or the DEM party… thus no inherent trust in the benevolence of people in powerful government offices… regardless of their Party and their Ideology.

    Power Corrupts… Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely

    And that equally applies to both parties.

  25. rosehips says:

    a lamby puppet? One of my most memorable toys growing up was a lambchops hand puppet!

  26. karmahd says:

    I did not read both bills nor took the time to understand the ramifications, but the one issue that keeps rearing its ugly head is government control. Why cannot the private sector offer this type of safety or regulation, if the government wishes to protect there own intranet from hackers that is all well and good. One area that begun to be looked at by terrorist or what ever you will call this perpetrator is via the net. Our lives are so intertwined utilizing this resource any shut down of the capability to communicate via the net, cell phones or TV would leave the new generation walking around like zombies. In short, any further control of the airwaves of any type is just another way of controlling the message that is sent through this source and that my friends is not good!!

  27. m2elena says:

    VF: TOTAL AGREEMENT. (knowing nods all around)

    We need to revolt this federal gov’t completely.

  28. rosehips says:

    What if they learned of an imminent nuclear threat and could prevent it by accessing the computers of the terrorists? What if this was the only way to avert a disaster of enormous proportions? I don’t think too many people would be screaming about their civil liberties. But the bill must be designed to avoid allowing the government from spying on us just because they might suspect we are conspiring to bring the government down. There’s gotta be a way.

    And good morning Karma!

  29. m2elena says:

    It is a lot like lambchops. Oh mr Roger! RIP!

  30. yorksnbeans says:

    As stated in my comment, I too don’t believe in limitless power and that’s why it is good that bills are being brought to the attention of the public before being signed off on. But, I also feel that with all the information we receive via the internet and various other media sources, that many times people over-react and become paranoid unneccessarily.

  31. karmahd says:

    Former altar boy here, private school until 7th grade. The penguins used to love this little fat boy, but the priests did not, I was not molested and I took that as a hit to my self esteem, (joking)

  35. VotingFemale says:

    Benito Mussolini was the Obama of Italy and was dearly loved and trusted to bring change to Italy long before WWII.

    He was trusted to do the right thing… he was handsome, sexy, and very well spoken and persuasive.

    Dears… history repeats itself for a reason.
    People don’t change… they, we, are inherently human and it is that which gives rise to people like George Bush, Barack Obama, and Benito Mussolini.

    This is why I absolutely oppose a party having both the office of President and both houses of Congress at the same time. It never works in favor of We the People.

  36. rosehips says:

    karma, lol @ not being molested!
    I went to Catholic school until 8th grade and was the first in my family to go to public high school. The nuns had a time with me. I think they secretly liked me but found me intolerable at times with my gum snapping and wisecracks from the back of the room. oh the stories we all could share!

  37. m2elena says:

    anywho, this government was never intended for any one sector to hold the amount of power. This is the largest power-grab in our history.

  38. rosehips says:

    M2, lampchops was a Shari Lewis puppet. ;-)

  39. karmahd says:

    We currently have a mole in our powergrid, so what is more control of the internet going to provide? The rule is, if someone wants to get into your computer they can! And that includes the most secure sites in the world, CIA FBI, DOD, all have been cracked. Also what ever happened to the Civil Broadcasting System, you know those annoying high pitched beeps and white noise you get monthly as a test of the Public Broadcasting System. LESSSSS Government control for me please.

  40. m2elena says:

    it’s your biting wit, rose. But most nuns are full of biting wit as well. LOL.

    Do we? Who Told Us? Obama? And of course Obama has never lied about anything.
    So… why would Obama lie about a mole in the power grid if there is no mole?

    FEAR MONGER TACTICS to sign off on these two bills.

    If a mole can get into the power grid past all safeguards that presently exist why is the grid hooked up to the internet in the first place?

    And these two bill are going to prevent hackers?

    Hell how much money has the government spent on hack-proofing government networks?

    And these two bills are going to prevent hacking? No, it is just going to legalize Government hacking instead.

    karmahd says

    We currently have a mole in our powergrid,

  47. rosehips says:

    I will say that the government has spent way too much money being paranoid. I can remember in college that some of my activist friends were targeted. One guy was talking on the phone and he heard a taped conversation of his from a previous phone call. He could hear it in the background. Now what was that all about? And remember in Michael Moore’s film Faranheit 9-11 when the gov’t infiltrated the peace activists? come on!

  62. karmahd says:

    Put the laptop down and enjoy the real world rather than the cyber world for a couple of days, it enhances your viewpoint and gives you time to process your thoughts

  63. rosehips says:

    yeah karma…good advice. my concern is that since I get up before the birds I will be itching to get on in the am. Luckily I should have my own room so I won’t disturb the others. There are three of us going and they are providing us with two rooms; each has a king sized bed!
    I suppose I can get some reading done in the wee hours or go walk the streets of Spokane.

  64. karmahd says:

My friend and I were out on the balcony looking down on the town and we saw a bar across the street that I recognized as one of Spokane’s gay bars. My friend wanted to go and I was game so we headed down. We ran into a guy we knew from the Park service outside the hotel and he was there with his gay lover (we didn’t know he was gay, but it made total sense). We told them we were going to the “Brass Rail” and did their eyes light up! lol. They had no idea they were right across the street from it. So they went with us and it was karaoki night and it was fun watching this one native american cross dresser sing sappy songs. What a hoot!

  73. rosehips says:

    damn cat just peed off my stairs down onto the floor right behind me. This is getting ridiculous!

  74. rosehips says:

    I better go clean up. I may have to go crawling around in my attic to find out what other messes its made. I kid you not, it is stinkin’ to high heaven here.

  75. karmahd says:

    Rose get a dog, they love you no matter what you do to them, cats ummm, look at you as a food source LOL

  76. rosehips says:

    karma, I have two cats and no intention of getting a dog. This cat is a stray that got into my house yesterday and is making itself entirely too comfortable.

  77. rosehips says:

    karma I am so glad that you have the day off and you are sharing part of it with us. I’ve missed you the last few days.

    Are you starting your diet this morning?

    I was dismayed a couple of weeks ago that I had regained 9 of the 30 lbs I have lost since Oct. But my bicycle riding must be paying off. I’ve now lost the 9 again and have just 10 more to go before I will feel comfortable in my skin again. I am naturally thin and to get so bloated was scary.

  78. VotingFemale says:

    Same here Rose… we have been going through Karma withdrawal…

  79. karmahd says:

    As to diet, NOPE not today have to go to Easter dinner in a couple of hours, but will start Monday as I did for the most part last week at work. I used to be a work out nut, now I lift weights twice a week and nothing else, I am very strong but chunky LOL. Need to get back on that treadmill the other three days of the week to shed the Boo Boo Fat. And I have missed you guys as well, but ya gotta pay the piper and play the game due to the wrong decisions made in the past I will be working for quite some time to come. But I will attempt to interact at any opportunity I have a few spare moments!!! Off to get ready for din din…

    This has been my fear for quite sometime. You are NOT overreacting on this matter. Several of my friends have been banned from Youtube for their position on Obama. Especially on Obama’s eligibility to be president issue. I’m talking about Youtubers who’re experienced bloggers w/a strong following.

    Evidence of what you speak is not complicated. All we got to do is look around us in the internet world. WND reported http://wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=94484 of a barrysoetoro website owned by Tharwat Abdul-Malik that now directs folks to the WD webaddress. A few days ago I went to that website & noticed that it strange notice on white background. Today, I noticed that it’s fixed. I suspect that Obama dont want to get public to be panicky that he’s strong arming the website owner.

  82. arlenearmy says:

    There’s also the matter of deliberate squelching of speech by Obama w/regards to Larry Sinclair’s book. Ive been searching high and low for that book and finally found it to be sold BY PREORDERS thru Barns & Nobel http://search.barnesandnoble.com/Barack-Obama-and-Larry-Sinclair/Sinclair-Publishing-LLC/e/9780578013879/?itm=1

    Obama has been strong arming publishers & printing companies if they have anything to do w/that book. Surely, a book such as the one Sinclair is trying to publish will have a buyer. Sinclair is at least alive and claims to have 1st hand information. Believe him or not.. He said Obama did some things to him. Several publishers offered to take the book, but all backed out the deal. So Sinclair has to self-publish the book. Barnes & Nobel wont even put up a picture of the book.

    Even Youtube shut him down (his video statement of what happened between he and Obama).

  83. arlenearmy says:

    Obama loves a crowd. He prefers to speak outside the premises of the WH. However, he has not weighed in on the tea parties. Is he not gonna speak to the thousands of crowds nationwide. I am sure a pulpit at one of the tea parties can be arranged. But he wont show up, because he perceives that the “PEOPLE”‘s voice is not in agreement w/the Obama agenda.

  84. rosehips says:

    VF, you might have noticed that Sir John commented on your bd post. He seemed to know you and holds some distain, that is evident. You may be correct that he is MartinT.

  85. rosehips says:

    Just got off the phone with my wayward son who turns 21 on April 22 (my earth day baby). He’s in Arcata CA and is heading up here tomorrow so he can get legally drunk here at home. I am excited to see him and will take him out for some beers, just like my dad did when I turned 18.

  86. arlenearmy says:

    Another piece of evidence is WIKIPEDIA. We all know what happened on that deal. Where the stuff about Obama’s past. Wikipedia scrubbed it down. They gave some blah blah lame excuse …. but they scrubbed down the historical and factual data.

    HISTORICAL FACT of FIRSTS: I believe that we have never had a president to enter the white house or took oath of office who did not have a church home. I believe that Obama is the 1st President to PUBLICLY quit his church & DISOWN his former pastor during the presidential campaign. If this is not a fact, then someone needs to tell me what president in our history has did this. However, Wikipedia (a internet based source of information) scrubbed that historical fact.

  87. rosehips says:

    What’s your point Arlene? Is this a requirement to be president? Can you blame him for quitting Rev Wrights church?
    No offense but it should not matter what church, if any, our president attends. That should be a private matter.
    I think its hypocritical to go to church just to appease the populace.
    If I was them, I ‘d choose the Quakers. Isn’t that where Carter went? Quakers are cool.

  88. arlenearmy says:

    I wouldnt’ care if Obama was FLDS and blood kin to Jeffs w/50 wives living under the same roof. Obama don’t have to attend any church. Yep, church going is private. But Obama made it public. Private don’t mean public … but again who made it public? Again, the Answer is: Obama. Who asked him give a press conference to announce he was quitting the church? He could had sent them a letter saying: “I quit”. And I don’t blame him for quitting the church, but I would not had known it until he made a public broadcast.

    On appeasement: Obama went to that church to appease the black community & its leadership (“populace”) for political reasons. If black wanna be politician wants to move up, he/she gotta get connected with a Black churches. This is a fact of life. That’s Hypocritical. Again, I don’t blame him for quitting, but I do blame him for sitting there for over 20 yrs & had to be pressured to leave it. Its historical but certainly its not the norm.

    Obama is a one term wonder… it is either do what he is doing now or lay low for 4 years and do it in his second term… and that would be a gamble that he would be reelected.

    The citizenship deal has him scared… and rightly so… he knows others know he is not in compliance with the Constitution and is subjected to being outed at any time.

    It must keep him up at night. And it explains why he is like a Run Away Freight Train with all this he is doing…

  93. arlenearmy says:

    Yes, VF ….. The eligibility issue seems to be the hot button issue w/Obama. You can go anywhere on the net and find that most bloggers who got a big following and speak on this matter, have had to find another server. Look at what happened to Orly. The other day she had to move her website to another domain. The largest Right-wing site that seems to be holding the line is WND .

    Yesterday, Obama dispatched Plouffe to get donations to shut down Limbaugh. Rush’s name is #1 on Obama’s list.. 2nd is Jindal (and I don’t know why he is troubled by Jindal).

  94. VotingFemale says:

    Obama can not suppress without being outed as supressing and that is one of his screw ups… he just does not have the mojo to suppress we the people…

    …and Glen Beck is laying waste to Obama’s slick wrappings, ribbons and lipstick that George Soros has paid so many so much to create.

    If Soros & Co does not shut down the internet they are sunk… and that they are trying to grab the legal power to shut down the internet under the guise of protecting the power grid that they themselves are trying to turn into a power controlled internet with this GE contract worth trillions… smart electrical power grid is computer networking on a huge scale… which will give both government politicians and hackers the ability to turn off anyone’s power at any time with a few keystrokes from a laptop…

    sure wish I knew who this btyka is. he/she left a pretty racist comment on a post from the day:

    implying that the natives in Canada who are complaining about diesel fumes in their community are actually getting sick from huffing. grrrr…

  96. Indycoltsfan says:

    VF, Obama and company think they are fooling everybody but trust me they are not. I do believe if they can’t change this country by propaganda alone they will decare martial law to move their agenda forward. They use the web to their advatage but they also know that the web is a problem for them because people like you and me and many others can do and end run around the propaganda media and get the real truth on their agenda.

    They are stuck with the Opposition and the opposition is dead on… what the Soros’ army of zombies is doing is not going down without a pushback from millions of people.

    xavier, everyone knows bush, kerry, mccain, clintons are in some way or another affiliated with the power-elite, and now Soros has teamed up with the rockefellers. What’s your point?

    We need to stop him.

  104. m2elena says:

    xavier, Obama has benefitted the most from Soros since George vetted him to be his candidate in 2004. He is the puppet of this master.

  105. VotingFemale says:

    Soros is a multi-billionaire business man. He didn’t bail out anyone… he made a business deal.

  107. m2elena says:

    I find it hard to believe that Geocities page on Bush, as Soros is the arch enemy of Bush… and the primary drive of Soros in 2004. Not playing politics, but it’s true. Bush is in leagues with the traditional power-elite, no doubt..
