WHITE HOUSE TO POLICE INTERNET: Holder Set to Take Control January 24, 2012

It’s like a political blindside to the American voter. Somehow, with virtually no coverage in the press, the White House has managed to close in on the unthinkable… bending online piracy laws to give the Department of Justice abusive power over the Internet.

Sound farfetched? Constitutionalist attorney Gary Kreep, President of the United States Justice Foundation (USJF), not only has a firm grasp on the legislation that would grant this authority, but he also has inside sources informing him that the Senate is scheduled to make this potential nightmare a reality when they pass S. 968 into law on January 24!

In a passionate effort to alert Americans and stop this Orwellian policy, Kreep is conducting a nationwide public awareness campaign, urging American citizens to call their Senators to vote against this draconian measure.

Gary stated, “This bill (S. 968) is disguised as a measure to stop online piracy. However, there are already plenty of laws on the books to protect copyrighted material on the Internet. This is an Internet takeover bill, pure and simple. This measure will give Eric Holder and Barack Hussein Obama the power to ‘police’ the Internet, ‘sanitize’ web searches and shut down anti-Obama websites. Just one ‘complaint’ from a liberal activist, or a government agent, that you are indirectly violating an obscure copyright rule, and your website could be fined huge sums, and it could be blacklisted."

Meanwhile, the left-wing mainstream media companies are campaigning all out for this bill, too. They want the government to shut down all the blogs, political forums, and independent news sites, so that they, once again, have a monopoly on the news you and I are allowed to see.”

So, do you think Holder and the rest of the Obama administration would really abuse this power?

The old Soviet Union used to have a saying, “Say anything you like. Just don’t say anything you don’t like.” It appears as though the commie ‘RATS are trying to revive it here.

From -OpenCongress Summary :

Establishes a system for taking down websites that the Justice Department determines to be "dedicated to infringing activities." The DoJ or the copyright owner would be able to commence a legal action against the alleged infringer and the DoJ would be allowed to demand that search engines, social networking sites and domain name services block access to the targeted site. In some cases, action could be taken to block sites without first allowing the alleged infringer to defend themselves in court.

S. 968

Aka PIPA, whose House sibling is SOPA, which I hear Eric Cantor has pulled the plug on (at least for the time being).

Piracy!

We have legal remedies, including court ordered injunction; to close down a website offering copyrighted material. Available and used for years. How well we know this on FR and we police excerpts continuously which is why FR needs to collect funds from use.

So why do we need to give the executive branch more power? How did this get past the house?

Over on Craigslist they are talking about the sale of second hand electronics, such as cables; a form of piracy that can cause the website to be shutdown.

US Crackdown On Web Piracy 'Shelved'

-snip-

"Today, California congressman Darrell Issa, who opposes Sopa, was reported as saying that House majority leader Eric Cantor had told him there would be no vote "unless there is consensus on the bill".

The statement waswidely taken as a death knell for the bill by online observers, with many on Twitter saying it had been "shelved" - although no official announcement declaring it has been withdrawn has yet been released."


It's not going anywhere.

Our so-called press - the MSM - has an advantage if they can shut down the free flow of information. They see the internet as their rival - rather than their own incompetence and bias.

The MSM has a dog in this fight - it's why they're quiet on this regulation change.

And remember: The Hollywood and Music crowd, who by the way hated “Hitler-Bush”, is all for this. The protected crowd of entertainers will continue to dance and give themselves endless awards for their proud acting ability and knife-scupted asses.

Haven’t we done this already?
