Strangely, the corporate media is NOT discussing the fact that President Obama just gave himself control of the Internet and all communication systems in America.
President Obama’s latest executive order will allow for a future government takeover of the Internet, involving multiple agencies including the Department of Homeland Security, under the guise of “national security needs” and “crisis management.”
In July 2012, Obama quietly released an executive order entitled Assignment of National Security and Emergency Preparedness Communications Functions.
Here are some highlights of the executive order, which is available in full:
Sec. 5.2. (Responsibilities of the DHS) (e) satisfy priority communications requirements through the use of commercial, Government, and privately owned communications resources, when appropriate; (f) maintain a joint industry-Government center that is capable of assisting in the initiation, coordination, restoration, and reconstitution of NS/EP communications services or facilities under all conditions of emerging threats, crisis, or emergency;This allows the DHS, working jointly and directly with private Internet Service Providers, to easily take over the Internet by claiming priority over private communication lines in the name of “national security.”
In the future, the DHS and other federal agencies can respond to whistleblower leaks, such as Edward’s Snowden’s revelation that the NSA has direct access to major Internet servers, by claiming they are “emerging threats” and “violations of National Security communications" by censoring Internet sites carrying those stories.
Unconstitutional abuses leaked to media outlets can be suppressed by the government with this framework created through Obama’s executive orders.
Internet censorship will be brought to you by “national security needs” and “crisis management.”
