Draconian Cybersecurity Bills

Attack on Internet freedom.

by Stephen Lendman

Bipartisan complicity's involved in hyping cyber threats. At issue is promoting draconian cybersecurity legislation. 

Obama supports congressional effects. Internet freedom's at stake. So are other civil liberties.

On March 8, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) conducted a mock New York cyber attack. At issue was gaining support for pending Senate legislation.

White House spokesperson Caitlin Hayden called the stunt a way to give " appreciation for new legislative authorities that would help the U.S. government prevent and more quickly respond to cyber attacks."

DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano said:

"The fact that we could be subject to a catastrophic attack under the right circumstances and we now know some of the things that would help us to protect against such an attack, that's why it's important now for the Congress to take this up."

Destroying a free and open Internet and other civil liberties is no way to do it. Power grab politics are in play. Major media scoundrels are silent.

The past decade witnessed a systematic war on freedom. It last vestiges are being attacked. Unless stopped, tyranny will gain full control. It practically has it now. 

Bipartisan complicity's on board to seize it. So is Obama. Bad as things are now, the worst is yet to come.

In recent years, various cybersecurity bills were introduced. Recent House and Senate versions are the latest threat.
