Obama's Internet Order: Power Grab or Simple Update?

Wednesday, 11 Jul 2012
By: Eamon Javers
CNBC Washington, DC Correspondent


Washington’s cynics go on high alert on Fridays around holidays. That’s traditionally when the White House puts out news it would rather didn’t get a whole lot of coverage.

That appears to be what happened on the Friday after Fourth of July as the White House revealed President Barack Obama’s new executive order clarifying the federal government’s communications authority in a national crisis.

Entitled “Assignment of National Security and Emergency Preparedness Communications Functions,” the blandly written document lays out a series of directives to government agencies to prepare plans to be able to communicate with “the public, allies, and other nations” in the event of a national crisis. It seems to assert the government can take control of private telecommunications technology, presumably including those used for the Internet, for government communications in an emergency.

Internet privacy advocates are raising concerns about the scope of the order, worrying that it represented a power grab on behalf of the federal government.

“Under the Executive Order the White House has … granted the Department [of Homeland Security] the authority to seize private facilities when necessary, effectively shutting down or limiting civilian communications,” wrote the Electronic Privacy Information Center in a blog post.

Critics are homing in on language such as this, from section 5.2(e) of the order:“The Secretary of Homeland Security shall … satisfy priority communications requirements through the use of commercial, Government, and privately owned communications resources, when appropriate.”

Scumbag Obama signs Executive Order taking over the Internet


“The United States relies on the Internet to perform essential functions including to operate critical infrastructure and to maintain essential national security capabilities. That is why the President has designated our digital infrastructure as a strategic national asset"

Hugo Chavez said the same thing before taking over banks, oil companies and more private property.


Obama is a Real Piece of Shit.

Obama signs order outlining emergency Internet control

A new executive order addresses how the country deals with the Internet during natural disasters and security emergencies, but it also puts a lot of power in the government's hands.

President Barack Obama signed an executive order last week that could give the U.S. government control over the Internet.

With the wordy title "Assignment of National Security and Emergency Preparedness Communications Functions," this order was designed to empower certain governmental agencies with control over telecommunications and the Web during natural disasters and security emergencies.

According to The Verge, critics of the order are concerned with Section 5.2, which is a lengthy part outlining how telecommunications and the Internet are controlled. It states that the Secretary of Homeland Security will "oversee the development, testing, implementation, and sustainment" of national security and emergency preparedness measures on all systems, including private "non-military communications networks." According to The Verge, critics say this gives Obama the on/off switch to the Web.

Presidential powers over the Internet and telecommunications were laid out in a U.S. Senate bill in 2009, which proposed handing the White House the power to disconnect private-sector computers from the Internet. But that legislation was not included in the Cybersecurity Act of 2012 earlier this year.

After being published by the Federal Register, executive orders take 30 days to become law. However, the president can amend, withdraw, or issue an overriding order at any time.

Obama gives himself control of all communication systems in America

10 July, 2012

US President Barack Obama quietly signed his name to an Executive Order on Friday, allowing the White House to control all private communications in the country in the name of national security.

President Obama released his latest Executive Order on Friday, July 6, a 2,205-word statement offered as the “Assignment of National Security and Emergency Preparedness Communications Functions.” And although the president chose not to commemorate the signing with much fanfare, the powers he provides to himself and the federal government under the latest order are among the most far-reaching yet of any of his executive decisions.

President Obama adds that it is necessary for the government to be able to reach anyone in the country during situations it considers critical, writing,“Such communications must be possible under all circumstances to ensure national security, effectively manage emergencies and improve national resilience.” Later the president explains that such could be done by establishing a “joint industry-Government center that is capable of assisting in the initiation, coordination, restoration and reconstitution of NS/EP [national security and emergency preparedness] communications services or facilities under all conditions of emerging threats, crisis or emergency.”

“The views of all levels of government, the private and nonprofit sectors, and the public must inform the development of NS/EP communications policies, programs and capabilities,” he adds.

On the government’s official website for the National Communications Systems, the government explains that that “infrastructure includes wireline, wireless, satellite, cable, and broadcasting, and provides the transport networks that support the Internet and other key information systems,” suggesting that the president has indeed effectively just allowed himself to control the country’s Internet access.

In order to allow the White House to reach anyone within the US, the president has put forth a plan to establish a high-level committee calling from agents with the Department of Homeland Security, Pentagon, Federal Communications Commission and other government divisions to ensure that his new executive order can be implemented.

In explaining the order, the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) writes that the president has authorized the DHS "the authority to seize private facilities when necessary, effectively shutting down or limiting civilian communications."

In Section 5 of his order, President Obama outlines the specific department and agency responsibilities that will see through his demands. In a few paragraphs, President Obama explains that Executive Committee that will oversee his order must be supplied with “the technical support necessary to develop and maintain plans adequate to provide for the security and protection of NS/EP communications,” and that that same body will be in tasked with dispatching that communiqué“to the Federal Government and State, local, territorial and trial governments,” by means of “commercial, Government and privately owned communications resources.”

Later, the president announces that the Department of Homeland Security will be tasked with drafting a plan during the next 60 days to explain how the DHS will command the government’s Emergency Telecommunications Service, as well as other telecom conduits. In order to be able to spread the White House’s message across the country, President Obama also asks for the purchasing of equipment and services that will enable such.

China is very proud and very comfortable with Obama because Obama being the Marxist he is will do whatever the Chinese demand of his fraudulent administration. Obama is a huge fan of the way the CHI COMS whip their people into submission. Giving Obama another 4 years is like giving a 2 year old the nuclear briefcase unlocked!

So what’s Hillary been doing lately? Appearing on Pakistani TV in a groveling apology for that same video–even as Pakistanis were rioting in the streets, killing 14 and wounding 70; the Al Qaeda flag has been raised over the US embassy in Cairo; and Libya is racing closer to chaos and civil war.

The Secretary of State is the person most responsible for how the United States presents itself to other nations–and protecting those who do that job for us.

In normal times, under a normal president, Hillary Clinton’s performance on both would be enough to force her to step down. But these aren’t normal times. So for now, she’s still at the helm at State-- to our nation’s shame.

But all joking aside. After Benghazi, is there still a presidential race? I should think not. The rest is a formality. It shall be interesting to see how much of the disgust for the democrats "TRICKLES DOWN" from Obama and the WH.
