Congress, Like the Sneaky Pedo Uncle of the Family, Slips CISA (CISPA) Into Law in the Dead of the Night

by Scott Creighton

the time has come — indeed, it is long overdue — for the wisdom, ingenuity and resources of American business to be marshalled against those who would destroy it. Lewis Powell memo, 1971

We gotta get Bill Gates to shut down the internet, for the CHILDREN!” Donald Trump

CISA (CISPA) is now the law of the land.

Your sneaky uncles in congress snuck into your bedroom the other night and planted their fascist seed into the futures of your children. Then sneakier ObamaGod took his turn, signed it into law and ran away into the night zipping up his pants to go party with his Big Business friends in Hawaii.

Yeah, it’s a nasty metaphor, but an even nastier reality.

Big Business has been pushing for CISPA for years.

How’s that for “CHANGE”?

Obama’s War on the Internet: The Ministry of Truth

by Philip Giraldi, Capaign for Liberty

The Ministry of Truth was how George Orwell described the mechanism used by government to control information in his seminal novel 1984. A recent trip to Europe has convinced me that the governments of the world have been rocked by the power of the internet and are seeking to gain control of it so that they will have a virtual monopoly on information that the public is able to access. In Italy, Germany, and Britain the anonymous internet that most Americans are still familiar with is slowly being modified. If one goes into an internet café it is now legally required in most countries in the European Union to present a government issued form of identification.
