    Another day, another Presidential decree. So tragic, most Americans just don't care. Big Brother and his Media minions have the People hooked on meaningless tabloid nonsense, disguised as 'News.' Meanwhile, the power-grab goes on.


    Napolitano: Executive order on cybersecurity is 'close to completion'

    Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano on Wednesday said the cybersecurity executive order that the White House is drafting is "close to completion."

    At a Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee hearing, Napolitano said the executive order is "still being drafted in the inter-agency process" and "is close to completion depending on a few issues that need to be resolved at the highest levels."

    She said the draft order still needs to be reviewed by President Obama.

    The White House is crafting a draft executive order aimed at protecting the nation from cyberattacks targeting critical infrastructure, such as the electric grid, water systems and transportation networks. The order would create a voluntary program in which companies operating key infrastructure would elect to meet a set of security standards developed, in part, by the government.

    The White House began to explore an executive order last month after Senate Republicans blocked a sweeping cybersecurity bill from Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.). The executive order aims to encourage critical infrastructure operators to beef up the security measures they use to protect their computer systems and networks from hackers.

    The draft has been circulated to relevant agency officials over the past month for feedback, as The Hill first reported.

    The voluntary program in the draft order is based on a measure in Lieberman's bill that drew opposition from GOP senators and business lobbying groups, chiefly the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Critics argued that the program would serve as a backdoor for regulatory agencies to force companies to meet new security standards.

    Napolitano again urged Congress to enact comprehensive cybersecurity legislation, arguing the White House cannot completely address the threat on its own. She noted that DHS is limited in the number of trained cyber personnel it can hire, which cannot be addressed by an executive order...

    If Obama gets another four years, you can kiss this country's freedom and liberty goodbye. Not to mention SCOTUS appointments.

    80 million Americans are armed. My guess is 40 million are willing to go to war here. My next guess is the other 40 million will follow soon after. Better hope this guy doesn't win and the Reps' get the Senate as well.

    It's Obby's war not ours. He starting it.

    The NDAA was passed to be used against American Citizens. And it will be.
