Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano revealed September 19 that an executive order granting the president sweeping power over the Internet is “close to completion.”

I’m at a loss to know why there isn’t some agency, or other branch of government that is charged with supporting and upholding the U.S. Constitution. Czars, executive orders, are bypassing the checks and balances that are paramount in our Constitution.

When will enough be enough?

Now, the mask slips on the reason for the quick and ready lie of the "film" last week!

Freedom of speech is the target.

In other words, the president will grant himself sweeping power.

Something just struck me. Why not just abolish Congress and the Supreme Court? It would save some money. It's not like they're providing any checks on presidential power.

When Barry loses the election, he will immediately shut down the internet and impose martial law. What do you think the IRS, TSA, and “Homeland Security” bought hundreds of millions of rounds of ammo for? Barry has already made the Constitution meaningless. We need to be ready to fight the fascists.

He didn’t protect our ambassadors - didn’t ‘see’ the disaster the Arab Spring would be - and now he and Hillary are apologizing for the film.

I don’t think he’s doing cybersecutiy to protect us from radical Islamists,,,

But she also indicated that it would be issued as soon as a “few issues” were resolved.

Issues such as detaining and disappearing any government officials who oppose it on constitutional grounds, for example?

This is proof positive that the purpose of DHS is to protect the regime from the people, not to protect the people from attack.

With reference to previous post, the pattern is similar to the outcry for "women's health" issues as a cover for intruding on another Bill of Rights provision--freedom of religion, with all its exclusions of government intrusion into the lives and rights of individual.

We were warned by numerous Founders and Presidents of the need for vigilance regarding those who would use such methods to erode and destroy the Constitution's prohibitions on their power.

A command that would cause DNS services to shut down would effectively shut the internet down. And you can bet the farm that the government has it ready to go; just need to tweek a few security settings I imagine.

Following the current curve of events, FR won’t be here a year from now if 0bama is re-elected. I’m serious. At some point all communications will be downed. This is why everyone needs to buy a CB radio. Good idea for SHTF time.

Imagine the logistics of such a thing, along with the monetary losses that would quickly ensue even if it could be done. I call BS.

If I'm wrong, I'm wrong. So let ‘im shut it down. We already know what's going on. Such a dictatorial action would invalidate his presidency.

It’s called CONGRESS. They are the oversight. Because 0bama is black and many of his minions are female and/or gay, Congress, ESPECIALLY REPUBLICANS fear reprimanding any of them because they know they’ll be demonized in the media for being ‘racist’, ‘homophobic’, etc..

No doubt Barry will do this. The regime will send out a statement at 1:00 AM on a Saturday to minimize the news cycle. The leftards will immediately line up and approve, forgetting their prior concerns of the Patriot Act, freedom of speach, etc.because.. it’s a dumocrat making the rule. The GOP will spend all of 5 minutes complaining, Boehner will cry, and someone will suggest sending a strongly worded letter. The MSM will talk about how this somehow protects our citizens diplomats abroad. The ACLU will similiarly endorse it and celebrate by filing suit against a Christian Church for not being inclusive of other gods...

And Conservatives? Freepers? We will not be stopped or silenced. Anger and disgust can be strong motivators.

Such an action would effectively shut down not only free speech but bring the remnants of our economy to a screeching halt more effectively than a foreign EMP attack.

Halts:

All e-commerce (approx $250 billion in 2011)
Almost all retail transactions involving credit, debit, ebt cards at the none function registers.
All ATMs probably all banks
All market activity national with huge international impact.
Isolate all local LEO access to DBs

That the House and Senate are not having emergency sessions to smother this abomination in the cradle and call Obama out by passing Articles of Impeachment shows how low the admin and dem party have taken us.

No one man under any circumstances should be allowed such power in a free republic. And given the thieves, scoundrels, and degenerates governing us, I have deep reservations of entrusting to them.

Consider the usurper flicking off for 48 hrs just to display his power.

Congress and the courts are supposed to fill that role. Sadly neither wants to do their jobs.

" Napolitano Says Cybersecurity Executive Order Almost Ready"

And if we had any real men the response from the House articulated by the speaker of the house should be "and the articles of impeachment are almost ready".

And no I don't mean this sarcastically! Where is our leadership? We do not have a dictatorship in this country.

Sign this executive order and we should begin the process of impeachment.

"I’m at a loss to know why there isn’t some agency, or other branch of government that is charged with supporting and upholding the U.S. Constitution."

There is. It's 1) the Congress, but the rats control the senate so it's lost it's effectiveness. It's 2) the Judiciary, however, we do have some bad judges and it's up to Congress to impeach them.

Finally 3) there's the people who can change the guard in the executive or the congress through free elections. What they don't seem to be able to do, is effectively nominate someone through the two party process that truly represents our values.

I do think though that there should be an office of constitutional rights under the Congress, that investigates abuses by the executive, and recommends policy changes to the executive and legislative changes to Congress.

This isn't Egypt. The Internet is too ingrained, too highly utilized in all areas for a “shut-down” to be reasonable.

Well, you just got put on to a list ... probably not the only one you’re on, of course, but we just can’t have average backwoods engineers spouting off terroristic threats like that, so there you are.

Naturally, though, you couldn’t do any shooting yourself because all of your guns fell into that lake that one time, right? Similar story to mine - its amazing how common that kind of accident is.

Seriously, this is very disturbing - and not the least because this particular POTUS has taken it upon himself to issue EOs on subjects that don’t have legitimate underlying legislation. Unconstitutional as Hell, but Congress is AWOL and the courts can’t do anything unless a case is filed (and even then, they seem to be about as effective as tits on a boar hog).

In the scenario I proposed (shutting down DNS services), commerce might be able to continue as many companies probably directly use Internet Protocol (IP) addresses which would probably still work in a DNS shutdown. But the average consumer who types in www.whateversite.com would not get through, and email would probably be disrupted.
