Congress Votes To Take Control Of The Internet!
ALERT: Taking a cue from the Internet blackout issued by Egypt's military dictatorship, Obama and his cronies are fast tracking a bill that would give big government permission to SHUT DOWN your Internet!
Senators presented a revised draft of legislation on Wednesday that would give Obama permission to shut down the Internet during a "cyber-emergency." Basically, Obama would have authorization to use any excuse to issue a total Internet blackout without a judicial review!
Democrats: International Crises Are A Foolproof Way
To Sneak Bills Through Congress
Citing the mayhem in Egypt, anti-free speech corruptocrats are rushing this bill through Congress. Rahm Emanuel was right; the Democrats never let a crisis go to waste. So, while the world watches in fear as violence and anarchy erupts across the Middle East, the big government gang is hoping no one will notice this bill slip through Congress.
This bill is just another example of the government trying to find ways to assume full control of the lives of regular American citizens. Big government wants to control the websites you visit, your access to real information (not propaganda,) and your right to log onto the Internet as you please. If we let the government get their hands on our access to the World Wide Web, there will be no end to their freedom-grabbing pillage.
Congress Votes To Block Your Access To Certain Websites
The revised version of the proposed bill (called the Lieberman-Collins bill) says that if the government decides certain Internet or computer systems need to be blocked, they won't be subject to a judicial review. Internet infrastructure that could be blocked includes providers of information technology and classified reports on security vulnerabilities.
According to the bill, the definition of critical Internet infrastructure has to meet three requirements:
- Disruption of the system could cause severe economic consequences
- The system contains a national information infrastructure.
- The national information infrastructure is essential to the operation of the system.
If the threat met all of the above criteria, Obama would have the power to declare a national cyber emergency. Proponents of the freedom killing bill failed to mention that giving Obama power to kill the Internet could result in private communications and data from law abiding citizens winding up in the lap of Big Brother. The Department of Homeland Security would be able to collect this private data without a court order (which is what they normally require.) Basically, the rule of law won't be applicable if Obama deems something a crisis. There is no reason the rules of privacy laws shouldn't apply to regular Americans who pay taxes and obey the laws.

Liberals Want U.S. To Adopt Communist China Internet Policy
This proposal not only gives Obama complete control over the Internet, but it gives him the authority to reign over the telecommunications networks. Sen. Lieberman remarked, "The President will never take over -the government should never take over the Internet." Yet, he said some drastic measures must be taken to avoid a potential mass scale cyber-attack. He continued, "Right now, China, the government, can disconnect parts of its Internet in case of war. We need to have that here too."
We do not need a Communist-style Internet take over. I don't know if Sen. Lieberman is aware, but China doesn't only exercise Internet restrictions during a time of war. They prevent access to certain sites and information EVERY DAY! China enforces strict Internet censorship through 60 laws and countless draconian administrative regulations. These laws gag critical opinions, corruption exposes and speech that protest their government. The communist country employs 50,000 people who act as Internet police, scouring the web for offenders to punish.
Obama and his Liberal buddies have already nationalized two Chrysler and GM and pretty much usurped the entire banking industry. Now, they want to get their hands on the last bastion of freedom - the Internet. Enough is enough! We must stop Obama's Internet grab before it's too late!
