    ‘We’re From the Govt. and We’re Here to Help’ — the FCC Swoops In On the Internet - Big Journalism

    I suggest you read the whole thing, instead of me trying to quote the salient parts of this. It's really necessary to read it ALL.

    Notice this is happening AFTER the USSC declared the FCC did NOT have authority over the internet.

    The government's response? We'll just declare the internet part of the "communication's service" and then we have authority!

    That's like the USSC declaring you can't stop free speech and the government's response is to redefine free speech as "unregulated communication," or some nonsense like that. Then there are calls to "regulate" this "dangerous, unregulated" speech that threatens you and me, with your lap dog liberal media providing the propaganda needed to justify such a move.

    Do you like how this works? Illegal aliens are "undocumented workers." Now the broadband is a "communication service."

    All the government has to do, to get their mitts on more power is simply "redefine" what's in the way and ViOLA! It becomes something they can regulate.

    I can't wait for the Obama operatives, er I mean the liberals on this board to tell us, this is really Bush's doing.

    Nuke the Internet

    Obama needs the power to destroy the whole internet with the touch of a button. He has been given the power to destroy the world, why not the internet?

    Congress is working on that:

    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.


    Hot Air Can Obama shut down the Internet?

    S.773: Cybersecurity Act of 2009 - U.S. Congress - OpenCongress

    Not surprising. Predictable move coming from the Socialists/Progressives. Massive Taxation will come next. Time to vote the Socialists/Progressives out of office. Make 2010 count people.
