s.773

Saul Alinsky, I mean, Barack Obama might soon have the power to take 'emergency control' over the Internet, under a proposed Senate bill S.773, which was proposed in April.

S.773, sponsored by Jay Rockefeller, (D-WV) and Olympia Snowe (R-ME) would give the President the authority to "declare cybersecurity emergencies," and to take defensive precautions against cyberwarfare waged against us by Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, Muslim extremists and others.
"We must protect our critical infrastructure at all costs--from our water to our electricity, to banking, traffic lights and electronic health records," Rockefeller said.
Nobody disagrees with that. But the bill goes further, relating to "non-governmental" computer networks. So, theoretically, Obama could take down my blog because he doesn't like my opinions.

The truth is, the Obama administration is exactly what the Left accused the Bush administration of being: Big Brother.
"I think the redraft, while improved, remains troubling due to its vagueness," said Larry Clinton, president of the Internet Security Alliance, which counts representatives of Verizon, Verisign, Nortel, and Carnegie Mellon University on its board. "It is unclear what authority Sen. Rockefeller thinks is necessary over the private sector. Unless this is clarified, we cannot properly analyze, let alone support the bill."
The Alinsky/Obama/Emanuel/Reid/Pelosi Democrats are all about seizing power and controlling our lives. Is this another "never let a crisis go to waste," moment?
