Under “Cybersecurity”, Congress Will Be the Internet’s Greatest Threat!

By Brad O’Leary

Gird your blogs, because if liberals in Congress get their way,
President Obama will have sole discretionary authority to shut down
the Internet or critical parts of the Internet should he feel his
presidency is being tested. Worse, under the guise of cybersecurity,
Obama will essentially be granted the power to destroy free speech on
the web.

On April 1st of this year, Senators Rockefeller, Snowe, Bayh and
Nelson introduced bills S. 773 and S.778, collectively called the
Cybersecurity Act, which would give President Obama dictatorial power
over the Internet during a time of national crisis or emergency.

All of the bills’ sponsors voted for the Bipartisan Campaign Reform
Act of 2002 that prohibited organizations and individuals from running
advocacy ads against candidates 60 days in advance of a general
election. Now it seems these same people have conjured up a gag order
for the Internet.

According to the current drafts, under the Cyber Security Act of 2009
the President may “declare a cybersecurity emergency and order the
limitation or shut down of Internet traffic to and from any comprised
federal government or United States critical infrastructure
information system or network”. He may also “order the disconnection
of any Federal Government or United States critical infrastructure
information systems or networks in the interest of national security.”

What constitutes “cybersecurity emergency” or “critical infrastructure
information system or network” is left completely up to the President
to define. We know that the Administration, according to Rahm Emanuel,
never wants “a serious crisis to go to waste”. We also know the
Administration supports the regulation of free speech on the Internet.

President Obama’s choice to lead the powerful Office of Information
and Regulatory Affairs is none other than Cass Sunstein, a radical
Harvard law professor and supporter of the Fairness Doctrine for the
Internet. According to Sunstein, “A system of limitless individual
choices, with respect to communications, is not necessarily in the
interest of citizenship and self-government.”

Obama campaign fundraiser and FCC Chair nominee, Julius Genachowski,
is a supporter of “Net neutrality”, the first step in applying the
Fairness Doctrine to the Internet.

“Net neutrality” proponents like Genachowski would have government
decide what content Internet operators and network owners must
provide. Incredibly, they claim this is to keep the Internet free and
open to all, when in reality, their goal is to usher the heavy hands
of federal regulators into the tent.

Stifling any venue where ideology competes with left-wing mainstream
media has always been a goal of the left and Obama. Obama has just
been more evasive in his means by supporting policies such as “net
neutrality” and wobbling on the reinstatement of the Fairness Doctrine
to talk radio. Liberal members of Congress are now set on sending
America on an unconstitutional b-line away from Uncle Sam and directly
to Big Brother.

The Cybersecurity Act is also includes a provision where “The
Department of Commerce shall serve as the clearinghouse of
cybersecuirty threat and vulnerability information to the Federal
Government and private sector owned (emphasis mine) critical
infrastructure information systems and networks.” Shelving all privacy
laws including the requirement for warrants, the Secretary of Commerce
“shall have access to all relevant data concerning such networks
without regard to any provision of law, regulation, rule or policy
restricting such access.” Senator Rockefeller made it clear in his
statement what “relevant data” this act could include when he stated
“We must protect our critical infrastructure at all costs ­ from our
water to our electricity, to banking, traffic lights and electronic
health records ­ the list goes on.”

While we have worried about cyber attacks from Russia and China, who
would have thought the greatest threat would come from members of our
own Congress.

Shut Up, America!
The End of Free Speech

By Brad O’Leary

In Shut Up, America! The End of Free Speech, Brad O’Leary shines light
on a dark mission of the left, shutting down conservative voices ­
and, in the process, eviscerating the First Amendment.

Brad O’Leary exposes the agenda and the strategy behind the plan —
how Congress and the president will rationalize the changes using the
language of “diversity” and “fairness” and “tolerance.” He also
addresses how the impending legislation and regulations will doubly
impact Christian talk radio — and eventually every other form of
communication in America.

While supplies last, every copy of Shut Up, America! purchased from
WorldNetDaily will be autographed by Brad O’Leary!

“If you want to see the blueprint for the plot to silence talk radio,
this is it,” says Joseph Farah, founder of WorldNetDaily and WND
Books. “How important is this? If you want to see the people in charge in Washington remain there perpetually, ignore this threat. The plot to end free speech and the free press in America is the ultimate incumbent protection plan.”

About the Author:

Brad O’Leary is chairman of PM Direct Marketing and a former NBC
Westwood One talk-show host. He is the author of 11 books, including
last year’s bestseller, The Audacity of Deceit: Barack Obama’s War on
American Values.

Global Warming & Earth day

One of my favorite sites to visit every day ticked me off last night

Astronomy Picture of the Day 4/21/09 was about global warming and they said:
“How much will the Earth’s surface warm up over the lives of our children? No one is sure. Compared to the past 100 million years, the Earth is currently enduring a relative cold spell, possibly about four degrees Celsius below average. Over the past 100 years, however, data indicate the average global temperature of the Earth has increased by nearly one degree Celsius.”

Lets analyze this sentence which is written by two Astrophysicis (since when was climate their area of expertise?). First it states Earth is currently experiencing a cold spell compared to the last 100 mission years. Also you should know we have been cooling the last few years and have experienced very cold winter. Here in Phoenix we’ve had freezing temperatures in December when we normally don’t freeze at all. Two winters ago we had a record cold snap for a few days that froze and killed trees, plants all over the valley and froze plumbing all over.

Next they tell us we are having global warming because the average had increased by “nearly 1 degree Celsius” which is 9/5ths of a Fahrenheit degree, or 1 degree Celsius = 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit. So the average over the last 100 years has gone up less than 2 degrees Fahrenheit.

To convert from Celsius to Fahrenheit, first multiply by 180/100, then add 32
To convert from Fahrenheit to Celsius, first subtract 32, then multiply by 100/180

What they haven’t told you is we have only had accurate records about that long and how accurate they are is debatable. Or that there are 31,478 American scientists who have signed the Global Warming Petition Project which states they are “convinced that the human-caused global warming hypothesis is without scientific validity and that government action on the basis of this hypothesis would unnecessarily and counter productively damage both human prosperity and the natural environment of the Earth.” They have a 12 page article on why Global warming isn’t science.. (html 150-dpi PDF, 300-dpi PDF, or 600-dpi PDF)


A review of the research literature concerning the environmental consequences of increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide leads to the conclusion that increases during the 20th and early 21st centuries have produced no deleterious effects upon Earth’s weather and climate. Increased carbon dioxide has, however, markedly increased plant growth. Predictions of harmful climatic effects due to future increases in hydrocarbon use and minor greenhouse gases like CO2 do not conform to current experimental knowledge. The environmental effects of rapid expansion of the nuclear and hydrocarbon energy industries are discussed.”

Or that the a good number of the stations that provide the data aren’t properly sited and give very bad readings.

The Global warming scare isn’t about “saving the planet or mankind” It is about power, money and control over YOU. The people who are pushing it are either dupes of the people pushing it or the ones who are making the money on it and want power and control. GE which owns NBC through them other media outlets is the biggest producer of CFL lights and lobbied congress to ban regular light bulbs. Gore who is a hypocrite and sells carbon credits. There are many others but I don’t have time to research them.
