White House gives Homeland Security control of all communication systems.

Scary stuff, the continued stripping away of freedoms.

The signing was accompanied with little to no acknowledgment outside of the White House, but initial reports on the order quickly caused the public to speak out over what some equated to creating an Oval Office kill switch for the Web. Now the Obama administration is addressing those complaints by calling the Executive Order a necessary implement for America’s national security.......

“This should have been done by Congress, so there could have been proper debate about it,” Stepanovich tells the Post of last week’s signing. “This is not authority that should be granted by executive order.”

White House spokesperson Hayden adds to the Post, “Mobile phones, the Internet, and social media are all now integral to the communications landscape,” concreting still the allegations that this order could be used as a kill switch to any of the millions upon millions of handheld and desktop devices across the country.

Obama doesn't OWN all communications in the USA

How can he give away what he doesn't have?

If you see something, say something, the government is listening.
Silence isn't golden, it's yellow.

hopefully the *alter*net will emerge

if things get slowed down or censored on the web

RP R3VOLution

...as someone noted before...

...it's great how a RUSSIAN News outlet is now exposing how sinister and communistic our own government is...

Yeah, they're a Constitutional Republic now and a bastion of total Liberty, freedom and prosperity..

Just wondering when we plan on starting a revolution, insteading of posting Alex Jones-hype-like headlines meant to "outrage" everyone...seemingly everyone has "woken up" to the terror coming out of D.C., yet strangely, things "PROGRESS" worse and worse and worse exponentially now even though we've been blogging/broadcasting about it for over a decade...

Obama's re-election is so obviously certain now because nobody really cares, since they've been conditioned NOT TO...

DHS and FEMA runs everything, and the apathetic fake Tea Party YAWNS and mocks Ron Paul - secretly, they will ALL vote for Obama, because they are way over their heads; and the love their creature comforts, need their jobs, and can still get a bailout - in exchange for OUR LIBERTY.

Bastards - all of them - I would definitely question their patriotism...they need a new PAC...Conservatives for Homeland Defense, honestly - that's how STUPID and HOPELESS this nation has become!!!

Lawful and peaceful rebellion

With Article V.

If we try sincerely and fail to gain a proper Article V, then the soldier defending the constitution from a domestic enemy constitutionally with law, is our contingency.

Keep in mind, there is a real plan and it is common sense.

Can we stop doing all the things we are doing that we do not want to do while still doing what we need to do?

Hopefully..

Hopefully delegates planning on voting Romney are paying attention, wise up and vote for freedom.

How do we *repeal* these unconstitutional

Executive Orders?!?

Do Everything you Can

To Simply Ignore Them.

And remember, by executive order

the NDAA (that can put the country under martial law) now applies not only to national emergencies but peacetime as well.

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.

Obama is more concerned

with complete control of the American people than he is with security. He also appears to be setting America up for the draft; more control. He planned it since before he was elected.

Remember Rahm Emanuel; his pet project of compulsory military training?

Sieg Fuqing Heil!

Is all I have to say.

Homeland Security

is the equivalent to the NAZI SS.

It's time! Rand Paul 2016!

"Truth, Justice, and the American Way!"

Literally

The Nazi's had the RSHA - Reichssicherheitshautamt, of which the Gestapo was just a part, which translates to Homeland Security Main Office.

Just saying, it's concerning to say the least when many of our governments recent actions have an exact Nazi equivalent.

Thetis

I hate to play libertarian

I hate to play libertarian purist here but it shouldn't be the government's to give away in the first place.

Fuck Washington
