Will bill give Obama control of Internet?
Proposed new powers called ‘drastic federal intervention’
Sen. John “Jay” Rockefeller, D-W.V.
A pair of bills introduced in the U.S. Senate would grant the White House sweeping new powers to access private online data, regulate the cybersecurity industry and even shut down Internet traffic during a declared “cyber emergency.”
Senate bills No. 773 and 778, introduced by Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.V., are both part of what’s being called the Cybersecurity Act of 2009, which would create a new Office of the National Cybersecurity Advisor, reportable directly to the president and charged with defending the country from cyber attack.
A working draft of the legislation obtained by an Internet privacy group also spells out plans to grant the Secretary of Commerce access to all privately owned information networks deemed to be critical to the nation’s infrastructure “without regard to any provision of law, regulation, rule or policy restricting such access.”
Who might be watching you without you knowing it? Get “Spychips” and see how major corporations and government are planning to track your every move!
Privacy advocates and Internet experts have been quick to sound the alarm over the act’s broadly drawn government powers.
“The cybersecurity threat is real,” says Leslie Harris, president of the Center for Democracy and Technology, which obtained the draft of S.773, “but such a drastic federal intervention in private communications technology and networks could harm both security and privacy.”
“The whole thing smells bad to me,” writes Larry Seltzer in eWeek, an Internet and print news source on technology issues. “I don’t like the chances of the government improving this situation by taking it over generally, and I definitely don’t like the idea of politicizing this authority by putting it in the direct control of the president.”

‘It is morphing now to include members of the armed forces’
A security analyst who provides intelligence information to a wide range of law enforcement, private corporation and security interests has written in a publicly released “white paper” that the issue of Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president could become a “flashpoint” in the United States.
The suggestion comes from Lyle Rapacki, a former police officer who has worked in the field of psychological disorders for years. Since the 1990s, he has provided his analysis in public “white paper” reports and classified documents to various safety and security interests.
Rapacki’s report cited the continuing controversy over Obama’s birth certificate and a long list of lawsuits that have alleged he is not eligible to be president under the Constitution’s requirement that the office be occupied only by a “natural born” citizen.
If the president would be found to be ineligible, Rapacki suggested, there would be a “constitutional crisis” over which of his orders, laws and actions “should be valid.”
Everyone has been waiting to see just how effective our new leader is outside the US.
We can give our puppet leader great marks for popularity abroad. Apparently photo ops are A++ and at the top of the Obama agenda list. It seems the media is having a drool fest over every outfit Michelle dawns where she is fast becoming the “queen of grunge”. Her outfits are interesting to say the least.
The US goal was to get help with stimulus and in Afghanistan. After all that is why our esteemed leader was there. Apparently as popular as Obama is … willing to help most of Europe IS NOT!
His leadership ability?
Prize bulls are led around by a nose ring … not quite so fitting or becoming for the President of the USA.
Meanwhile the liberals see all of this as a GREAT JOB.
What a surprise!
We the people are again left holding the bag and footing the bill for every folly in the world.
Enough is Enough!
The photo above captures a disturbing trend that is beginning to affect wildlife in the US .
After hearing of the Democratic Party victory, animals that were formerly self-sufficient are already modifying their behavior to take advantage of what they expect to be a new set of societal norms in the next four to eight years.
This black bear from Montana has ceased hunting for a living and is sitting outside the US Fish & Wildlife Service office in Kalispell, apparently waiting to be fed and to have his winter den dug by government employees.
The residents of Kalispell are calling him ‘Bearack Obama’
If there is any good coming out of all this economic crisis it is the citizenry is finally taking notice of what the Government is doing or not doing and why.
Apparently one of the things on their minds is WHO IS INDOCTRINATING OUR KIDS. Many moms and pops do not want it to be Bill Ayers.
Remember him? The guy that Barack Obama just slightly knew as someone on the block.
You know the guy who co-founded the violent radical left organization the Weather Underground, which conducted a campaign of bombing public buildings during the 1960s and 1970s.
The one who is now considered a Distinguished Professor of Education and Senior University Scholar by a number of left wing WINGNUTS.
Anyone with a grain of sense would call/treat him for exactly what he is … A TERRORIST. Foisting his ideology on our young as he traverses the nation speaking at universities.
He is a professor in the College of Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
That alone is a crying shame … what can those who hired/admired him be thinking?
Oh wait I know they were not!
It seems due to vocal opposition, Ayers’ recent trips to speak at Naperville High School in Illinois, an indie bookstore in the same town and at Boston College have all been canceled.
Ya see … we the people do have a voice and the smart people actually do listen.
