Senate Bill 773

The Senate Bill 773 (S. 773) will give the President of the United States of America the power to pronounce a “cyber emergency” therefore will empower the government to disconnect users from the internet. Not only that. The S. 773 also will require that professional IT individuals be certified by the federal government.

The alleged sponsors of this bill are Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) actual member of the United States Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and Senator Olympia Jean Snowe McKernan (R-ME) also known as ˜RINO” (Republican in Name Only).

This bill is believed to be the attack of the Obama administration to those who don’t approve of their policies. The internet and news talk radio are the target of this administration.

In a recent White House conference President Obama announced the appointment of a cyber security coordinator also known as the Cyber Czar, who will have the responsibility of taking care of the critical infrastructure in which all Americans depend on. “We will ensure that these networks are secure, trustworthy and resilient,” he said. “We will deter, prevent, detect and defend against attacks, and recover quickly from any disruptions or damage.”

The Cyber Czar, as the appointed cyber security coordinator, will serve on the president’s national economic council and will be a member of the national security staff. President Obama also stated that this office will coordinate and join together all cyber security policies for the government. The office will coordinate government (federal and local) response in case of a cyber incident or assault. The Cyber Czar will coordinate how local, state and federal agencies are to interact with international partners and the private sector in case of a cyber attack.

Those who contest Senate Bill 773 warn about the possible negative cost that it could carry. It is seen as a menace to the First Amendment of the United States Constitution. Critics warn about the danger of government intrusion in the cyber space. The technology that is going to be implemented is said to be so knotty that it will require computer scientists just to figure out if the government is protecting or spying on The People.

The President will have in his hands the power to close down internet based business; he will have the power to determine if The People should or shouldn’t hear a message or see and hear certain message. The president claims that the main purpose of this bill is to protect against cyber attacks and to encourage cyber security awareness.

Some say that, if this bill is passed, it will give President Obama never before seen powers.

Be Afraid. Be Very Afraid!

    AU is facing a similar issue. Rudd wants all of AU to go through a firewall. They are calling us south china.

    Some have said this is to protect our infrastructure in case of an attack from an enemy overseas. Our power grid is extremely vulnerable and needs a major overhaul in the security department.

    If there is an attack and the government turns off the internet, it will be the same result as a successful attack.

    How about fixing the security problems instead of giving the President a giant off switch.

      The actual reasoning they are using is really insane and just makes no sense what so ever. One of them deals that i think they thought they would get this passed under the cover of another bill pkg and closed doors cuz the wording this is all about what they say it is not about.

    Hi Vic,

    Seeing as how the congress is having so much trouble even passing health care legislation, I’d tend not to worry too much that legislation giving “dictatorial” powers would have a great chance of sneaking through.

    But then again, I’m not a big conspiracy buff … although the way those building just collapsed on themselves on 9/11 was kind of odd. (I’m not serious).

    Talk to you again soon,
    Todd
