U.S. Government Moves To Ban Internet Access

Taking a cue from Communist China, Congress moves to empower the Federal Government to ban access to web sites.

Under the guise of national security and interfering with infringement on any copyrighted material, the House of Representatives this week introduced the “Rogue Web Sites Bill”; legislation designed to allow the government to create lists of internet sites that are to be banned from any access by Americans.

Note that tyrannical regimes necessitate the crackdown of the free flow of information, and they ALWAYS do so under the auspices of security or legality to protect the interests of the state and those allied with it.

The days of a free internet are rapidly disappearing into the iron grip of an insatiable government monster.

The New American reports:

U.S. Government Seeks to Create Website Ban List

The U.S. House of Representatives recently introduced a “rogue websites” bill that has managed to attract bipartisan support even though it would force Internet Service Providers to create a list of banned websites and prevent users of those websites from accessing their sites. The list is all too similar to the “ban lists” that are found in China…

It is the House version of a bill that was introduced in the U.S. Senate earlier this year called the Theft of Intellectual Property Act or Protect IP Act.

While the touted focus of the bill is on foreign websites, it may just as easily be applied to all .com domains.

The very language of the bill indicates it is trying to empower the federal government to ban websites.

Once again, the federal government is being given permission to act in violation of individual rights just based on an accusation of something believed to be unlawful, without legal process.

The newest proposal to acquire the ability to ban websites should not come as too much of a shock, as the government has already taken the authority to demand that websites remove information and videos which contain too much “government criticism.” Google admits that there has been a substantial increase in the number of requests by the federal government to take down certain information.

    The Senate passed a version of this back in the Spring under Harry Reid. This is the House version. The two will reconcile and this will become law in very short order. It has Ruling Class Republican AND Democrat sponsors.

    The days of the free and open internet are over.

  5. The bastards wont be happy until they get that which they work for so hard.. they really have no idea of what will come from their desires. One can only wonder at the stupidity and ignorance of such fools yet they are the very product of our sloth

    this is what happens when the government is not kept in check by the people. the only way to stop this is to ban the payment of all government and make it all voted for online and do away with their lies and deseption.

    I’ll agree with your first point, however your suggestion that we vote for everything online is nothing but a pure mobocracy. We were intended to be a representative REPUBLIC, not a Democracy. A Democracy is four wolves and a sheep deciding what is for dinner. Do you really want to go there?
