Obama Bypasses Congress, Issues Cybersecurity Executive Order

While Americans watched the last stand and possible death of Christopher Dorner, President Obama continued along the tyrannical tack and issued an executive order granting the intelligence agencies in his administration expansive and unconstitutional control over the flow of Internet traffic and the personal data of millions of users.

President Obama telegraphed the issuance of the order during Tuesday night’s State of the Union address. He cited the “growing threat from cyber-attacks” as the impetus for seizing control of the nation’s internet infrastructure.

“We know hackers steal people’s identities and infiltrate private e-mail,” he said. “We know foreign countries and companies swipe our corporate secrets. Now our enemies are also seeking the ability to sabotage our power grid, our financial institutions, and our air traffic control systems.”

“We cannot look back years from now and wonder why we did nothing in the face of real threats to our security and our economy,” he added.

According to the text of the edict, titled “Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity,” its broader purpose is to “enhance the security and resilience of the Nation's critical infrastructure.”
