Executive Order Promises To Give Total Control Of The Internet To The DHS

Obama has signed an Executive Order giving Chaz’s DHS total control of the internet.
Apparently the massive outcry against SOPA was meaningless as the fuhrer simply made a dictatorial decree.

In an event that was devoid of the usual pomp and circumstance, President Obama issued an Executive Order, (EO) that effectively handed the Department of Homeland Security, (DHS) the ability to take complete control over the internet, according to reports from VPNReviewz.
According to privacy advocates like the EFF, EPIC, UsenetReviewz, and many others, this order gives the DHS the authority to take complete control of public, private, and non-profit facilities…giving them the ability to close off or limit any and all civilian communications. And, on the National Communications Systems official website, the order is further elaborated on, saying that the infrastructure, “includes wireline, wireless, satellite, cable, and broadcasting, and provides the transport networks that support the Internet and other key information systems.”

CEO of VPNReviewz, Michael Maxstead, agrees that the existing “Emergency Alert System” used in the US probably does need to be brought up to date to reflect existing technologies, but that, “This EO allows too much control over such a large entity.” He further goes on to wonder “And, what will the system be used for once it is completely in place?” He asks this because the order allows the DHS to “prioritize” internet traffic. In order to prioritize the traffic effectively, the controlling and monitoring agency would have to know the origination point, destination, identification, and type of traffic. Essentially everything about the communication.

  1. Move along taxpayer – Nothing to see here

  2. Just like in 1913 they said the income tax would be no big deaL.  Nothing to be concerned about.  Maybe half of 1% to millionaires only. 

  3. Too much freedom with the internet..  People forming independent unbiased ideas..

  4. Sadly, they need to do this.  The Internet is the ONE thing left to provide non-elites with essential and critical informatio at this point.  It’s the only source of least biased info left out there.  When they shut down the Internet, the people will truly be in the dark again.  The boldness and audacity is stunning.

  5. Change:liberal democracy to corporate fascist dictatorship in less than 4yrs.
    Heil Obama!! our beloved fuhrer.
     

  6. Hello!  Hello?  Can you hear me now.  I think Chaz just pulled my switch.
