Obama Will Shut Down the Internet . . .

by on Jun.19, 2010, under The General Pursuit

Momentum is building for the U.S. government to exercise complete control over the Internet, as mainstream media beats the drum about the threat of a cyber attack on America. Both CNN and FOXNews have had “experts” on to warn of the vulnerabilities of utility companies, specifically pointing out that the SCADA systems are not on isolated networks, and are accessible to hackers via the Internet. CNN even had a 2 hour simulated event entitled Cyber Shockwave with Wolf Blitzer and former high level government officials simulating an attack. Talk about mainstream media propaganda!

Now, there is a bill being floated in the US Senate that would grant Obama the power to control and/or shut down the internet in an emergency! Here is a link to the ZD Net article on this atrocity.

The justification is being flaunted on FOXNews.com, in an article in which Janet Napolitano, Homeland Security Secretary, wants to forsake civil liberties for “security.” Here is an excerpt from that article:

As terrorists increasingly recruit U.S. citizens, the government needs to constantly balance Americans’ civil rights and privacy with the need to keep people safe, said Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.

But finding that balance has become more complex as homegrown terrorists have used the Internet to reach out to extremists abroad for inspiration and training. Those contacts have spurred a recent rash of U.S.-based terror plots and incidents.

“The First Amendment protects radical opinions, but we need the legal tools to do things like monitor the recruitment of terrorists via the Internet,” Napolitano told a gathering of the American Constitution Society for Law and Policy.

And the shocking boil down:

Napolitano said it is wrong to believe that if security is embraced, liberty is sacrificed.

Enjoy it while it lasts – the Internet will increasingly not be the open source of information we have come to love. Sadly, the only protection we have is the fact that the NSA with the help of AT&T and Google are tracking our every thought via the Internet. They won’t want to forsake that tool – but they’ll control the Internet such that they have the best of both worlds.
