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
If Obama (George Soros) could shut down the
Power of Public Opposition, their Takeover is
The joint bipartisan grassroots Tea Party Movement is evidence of the power of ‘We the
People’ to stop this Dictatorial Takeover
…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)
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.
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…
First, from MotherJones.com …a Liberal website at:
Should Obama Control the Internet?

A new bill would give the President emergency authority to halt web traffic and access private data.
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.”
Next, from US News, another Liberal website:
New Bill Would Let Obama Snoop In Computer Files
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 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?
