On Friday, July 6, 2012 - two days after celebrating our 236th year of Independence - our President, Barack Hussein Obama, issued an Executive Order granting the White House full control of all communication systems in the country. This allows the Executive Branch legal authority to control and monitor all communication channels via, “wireline, wireless, satellite, cable, and broadcasting, and provides transport networks that support the Internet and other key information systems.”
From this day forth, the President, and any other presidents that follow, will have the Executive power to shut down, intercept, or filter all information stored on cell phones, as well as, limit or unplug internet access. To protect the national security and ensure emergency preparedness, the President has granted the Department of Homeland Security “the authority to seize private facilities when necessary, effectively shutting down or limiting civilian communications."
The bill is intended to create a direct line of contact between the American public and the government during critical times. As the President states, “such communications must be possible under all circumstances to ensure national security, effectively manage emergencies, and improve national resilience.” If these communications are absolutely necessary to ensure the safety of the country and prevent natural disasters from devastating cities, then why would the bill also include the authority to seize private facilities and shut down or limit civilian communications? In times of great disarray, we need to be able to communicate with each other. Shutting down the internet only prevents messages from getting out which seems like the greatest threat for people rebelling against government control.
While this could be a legitimate way of finding someone dangerous in the country or be an instant message tool from the President to the people, we’d like to think, mistakes are made all too often at the expense of the American people, and more and more citizens are voicing their concerns with politics as usual. This new Executive Order to control communication outlets presents a wonderful opportunity to circumvent SOPA & PIPA and move forward with Internet restriction. The Patriot Act opened an intrusive and malignant can of worms for anyone breaching the subject of Islamic terrorism, and with a subtle pass under the nose of the American populous, the National Defense Authorization Act, was signed into office on January 1, 2012. The NDAA entitles the military to indefinitely detain anyone suspected of proposing terrorist threats (citizen and noncitizen) without due process, and conduct indefinite interrogations and investigations of such suspects.
These bills are all tying into each other, as if they are prerequisites for the next. Drones have been approved to monitor and surveil city behavior while the NDAA grants the authority for the military to come take you from your home and indefinitely detain you without anyone knowing about it, and the new Executive Order for communications controls limits or shuts down civilian communications while seizing private facilities. We are becoming more of a police state every day, while the mainstream media ironically focuses on the upcoming Presidential election. They are more interested in arguing about Romney’s tax returns instead of informing the people of Obama turning the country into George Orwell’s 1984.
Our personal liberties are at stake, and for the first time, voters have taken freedom for granted. To this I say ... WTF!
