4 Hours Left to Stop CISPA

Call Now: Tell Congress to Reject CISPA

The House is about to vote on the "cybersecurity" bill known as CISPA, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act. Despite recent amendments, CISPA still features dangerously vague language that could put your personal information in the hands of military organizations like the National Security Agency.

While CISPA passed through the House last year, it failed to be enacted after a veto threat. This year's bill fails to solve the fundamental privacy and civil liberties problems with the misguided law. Please speak out! We’re asking individuals to call Representatives and follow up with a tweet.

I wonder what it feels like

I wonder what it feels like to be elected by the people, make an oath to protect the people and it's constitution, then while those same people are yelling "please don't sign that bill!", they sign it....I just can't imagine what goes through their minds while they are voting yes, knowing we were screaming no.

It just PASSED 288-to-127

http://rt.com/usa/congress-house-bill-cispa-031/

The US House of Representatives has passed the controversial Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protect Act (CISPA).

Lawmakers in the House voted 288-to-127 Thursday afternoon to accept the bill. Next it will move to the Senate and could then end up on the desk of US President Barack Obama for him to potentially sign the bill into law. Earlier this week, though, senior White House advisers said they would recommend the president veto the bill.

Oh Look, Rep. Rogers Wife To Benefit Greatly From CISPA

It would appear that Rep. Mike Rogers, the main person in Congress pushing for CISPA, has kept rather quiet about a very direct conflict of interest that calls into serious question the entire bill. It would appear that Rogers' wife stands to benefit quite a lot from the passage of CISPA, and has helped in the push to get the bill passed.

Mark Twain

White-colored Criminals, BOTH of them

If their conflict of interest conspiracy to commit this fraud isn't blasted far and wide, by both opponents and press; it's likely because of the latter's fear of financial loss or complicity in bribery to cover this up. At this point in the take over, I could even suspect physical threats.

What part of constitutional, lawful representation does Mike Rogers, (and his wife), want to use to justify his actions in pushing something they both directly benefit from; especially when it harms the rest of us all so much?!

U.S. Engaged in Torture After 9/11, Review Concludes

By SCOTT SHANE
Published: April 16, 2013

WASHINGTON — A nonpartisan, independent review of interrogation and detention programs in the years after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks concludes that “it is indisputable that the United States engaged in the practice of torture” and that the nation’s highest officials bore ultimate responsibility for it.

I read this bill is for Hollywood lobby. Is there a source to who specifically is supporting bill? Mike Rogers tweeted that his donors support this bill, so I want to know who these donors are. http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20130322/10035922418/cispa-...

I'd email my rep, but...

...he's Mike Rogers. :/

Seriously, though, people. Cyber security will pass. If not now, later. If not by law, by Executive Order, as is already partially in place. Fake politics is begging your slavemasters for more rights, or to not take certain rights away from you. REAL politics is taking your freedom into your own hands.

Get a good VPN. Start using Tor. Honestly, when whatever cyber security bill they do whip up inevitably passes, I hope it will be a grand awakening for many people on here. They passed their draconian laws, BUT HEY, LOOK! I can still be free on the Internet by taking my destiny into my own hands, using the software of like-minded people to do so.

When that day comes, maybe, just maybe, people here will realize that cattle begging the rancher (or even trying to elect a better, more benevolent rancher) is no solution. Leaving the ranch of your own volition is.

Private Internet Access

is probably the best VPN out there these days :) Just beware if you're a Mac user, as they don't yet have DNS leak protection on OS X, which is a shame.

It is actually built into the OSX client, and is always enabled
That is why the option is not visible. (I think they should make this more explicit on their website).

As long as you are using the VPN client you should be protected on your mac.

Just spoke with a young man named Mark

In my local congressman's office (Ami Bera). It was unlike any call to any congressional office I have ever made. he was supportive, a local to where i live, very energized and gave me hope that we may actually get taken seriously.

I worked on the campaign video for Congressman Bera (video production is what I do) in 2010, when he ran and lost. The guy seems like a real person who means well, so its up to people in his district to clue him in on what's important. Lets see if my impression is at all correct.
