Obama Dictated Internet Takeover To FCC – Chairman REFUSES To Testify Or Answer Questions Before Vote

ObamaCare-for-Internet

FCC Chair refuses to answer questions before internet takeover vote as we learn Obama himself dictated to the FCC his plans for federal takeover after the November election.

This is how third-world dictatorships operate.

After the shellacking the Democrat party was handed this past November, His Heinous Barrack Hussein Obama goes to the FCC – an ‘independent’ agency and hands them secret plans he demands they implement in order to nationalize and take over the internet.  Under the false guise of ‘net neutrality’ two Republicans on the committee blew the whistle and warned that this is ‘ObamaCare for the internet’ – intended to ultimately restrict content and access to news and information.

Written in secret, kept secret and passed into “law” before ANY of us know what ‘rules’ will be imposed – this is how a dictatorship operates.  And America willingly puts up with it with little more than a whimper.

The Republicans run like sissies from daring to confront and stop this lawlessness.  When they ordered FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler to testify before a Congressional oversight committee today, BEFORE the takeover tomorrow, Wheeler defiantly refused to do so – and the Republicans on the committee were indignant enough to simply state without emotion that they are “deeply disappointed”.

“Deeply disappointed”?????  How about getting the Sergeant-At -Arms to make an arrest for contempt of Congress?  How about the House and Senate demand hearings before the FCC is allowed to make ‘law”?  How about the House DEFUND the FCC entirely until they comply with the demand that they let the American people study these Obama-drafted plans before they make them policy????

But no – the GOP is a surrender-monkey party that is more content to go along with the dictatorship because they think they will keep a seat at Obama’s table than stand up to oppose unConstitutional and lawless dictatorial decrees that strip up of our liberties.  The most we will get is a shrug of the shoulder and a sigh of “disappointed” from the lips of a completely neutered and totally complicit Republican party.

The permissible and free Internet as we knew it ends tomorrow.  You will not feel it right away, but in time the pain will become perhaps more pronounced than your health care costs.  Keep watching your bill go up in the coming months as the ISP giants repackage their services to comply with these new secret plans and maximize their income in other ways.  If you read or write blogs like this one – in a year – it is possible they will no longer exist due to FEC campaign laws being applied to any political discourse.  The federal Beast will then run and control the totality of the internet, limiting access, content and speed, while the cost will skyrocket beyond the reach of most, and all the so-called opposition party can muster is ‘deeply disappointed’????

We are so screwed.  We will be on our own to resist and defy this tyranny.  It’s well past lock and load time.

FCC Committee

FCC Chair Refuses to Testify before Congress ahead of Net Neutrality Vote

Two prominent House committee chairs are “deeply disappointed” in Federal Communications Commission chairman Tom Wheeler for refusing to testify before Congress as “the future of the Internet is at stake.” Wheeler’s refusal to go before the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday comes on the eve of the FCC’s vote on new Internet regulations pertaining to net neutrality. The committee’s chairman, Representative Jason Chaffetz (R., Utah), and Energy and Commerce Committee chairman Fred Upton (R., Mich.) criticized Wheeler and the administration for lacking transparency on the issue. “So long as the chairman continues to insist on secrecy, we will continue calling for more transparency and accountability at the commission,” Chaffetz and Upton said in a statement. “Chairman Wheeler and the FCC are not above Congress.”

Net Neutrality: How White House Thwarted FCC Chief

After Secret Meetings, Obama Pushed for Tougher Stance on ‘Net Neutrality’

In November, the White House’s top economic adviser dropped by the Federal Communications Commission with a heads-up for the agency’s chairman, Tom Wheeler. President Barack Obama was ready to unveil his vision for regulating high-speed Internet traffic.

…The specifics came four days later in an announcement that blindsided officials at the FCC. Mr. Obama said the Internet should be overseen as a public utility, with the “strongest possible rules” forcing broadband providers such as AT&T Inc. and Verizon Communications Inc. to treat all Internet traffic equally.

The prod from Mr. Obama came after an unusual, secretive effort inside the White House, led by two aides who built a case for the principle known as “net neutrality” through dozens of meetings with online activists, Web startups and traditional telecommunications companies.

…As rumors swirled last fall that Mr. Obama was preparing to call for tougher Internet regulations, Comcast Corp. CEO Brian Roberts called Ms. Jarrett, pressed her for information and urged the White House not to go through with the move, people familiar with the matter say.

She offered no help, these people say. Google Inc. Executive Chairman Eric Schmidtspoke with White House officials, urging them not to go through with utility-like rules.

…After Republicans gained their Senate majority, Mr. Obama took a number of actions to go around Congress, including a unilateral move to ease immigration rules.

…Mr. Obama made them clear in a 1,062-word statement and two-minute video. He told the FCC to regulate mobile and fixed broadband providers more strictly and enact strong rules to prevent those providers from altering download speeds for specific websites or services.

Obama’s Regime Collecting Not Just Phone Records, But Internet Browsing History And Credit Card Purchases Too

A vast overwhelming network of domestic spying by the Obama Regime collects data on everything you do or say in life.

Drones deployed that can see and listen to you from 17,000 feet up.  An NSA database of your phone records, financial transactions, web browsing history.  An IRS used to punish Obama’s opponents, sporting a massive database of your financial records, and will by next year, have a database of all your medical records.

And there’s more.

Obama’s regime has put in place and built upon what was started under previous Administrations, a government surveillance monster that will ensure that everything you do, everything you say, everything you purchase, every place you go on the internet, and everything about you from your diet to your whereabouts is known, catalogued, databased and available for any action the Federal Government decides to take. Why just now, Breitbart is reporting that the NSA is targeting your credit card use.

The WSJ is reporting that in addition to monitoring cell phone records, emails and web activity, the National Security Agency is monitoring credit card transactions. “NSA has established similar relationships with credit-card companies, three former officials said.”

While for many the news this week of government spying on Americans is shocking – those of us who know what Obama and his MarxoFascists are and what they are doing – knew months ago that some kind of massive nefarious spy program was going on under Obama.

Back in early February – this blog reported what MarxoFascist crone Maxine Waters said publicly about a ‘secret database of everything on every individual”

Back in February – Maxine Waters: “Obama Has Secret Database Of Everything On Every Individual”

Now we know what she was referring to.  She knew back then, and probably much earlier than she let it slip, that Obama was installing a secret massive surveillance monster that would know everything there was to know about you.   This massive Soviet-inspired domestic spy apparatus targets average American citizens, not foreign Jihadists and foreign enemies as the media is attempting to tell us.  An apparatus that indeed, will have information about everything on every individual.  What you read, what you buy, what you believe, what you own, what you eat and what your medical condition is.   Information that can be used against you for any reason the government deems necessary at any time.

Or as we saw with the IRS Scandal, PUNISH you.

That means you.  That means me.  Waters and her Politburo Comrades in D.C. have known full well about this domestic spy apparatus.  In fact GOP Judenrat’s Lindsey Graham and John McCain support the NSA and Obama’s domestic data trove.  Perhaps this is why John Boehner and Mitch McConnell act as silent co-conspirators in this MarxoFascist Coup?   They remain silent while Obama and his cronies are perpetrating  one violation of the Constitution and our rights after another with little to no outrage or condemnation.

Meanwhile the state grows ever bigger, more menacing, more entrenched and more determined to make everyone in America a criminal it can act against as it sees need.

This is how it was in the Soviet Union for the average Russian.  They were automatically guilty of something, and all the info the Soviet State had on the individual could be used as evidence in a case to make that person ‘go away’.

Don’t think that cannot happen here, because it already IS happening here, right in front of you.  But like the Jews in 1930’s Europe, many simply refuse to believe this can possibly be happening.

What I find hilarious is the fact that the very cretins who were excoriating George Bush for the NSA wiretaps of FOREIGN phone calls coming INTO the USA from known Jihadists, who were even calling for his impeachment over that – are today applauding even worse.  What Bush had done was to LIMIT the wiretaps to specific criteria dealing with FOREIGN terrorists.  Obama’s NSA targets every American citizen WHILE absolving known Jihadists.

On December 16, 2005, The New York Times ran a front-page story revealing that the Bush administration, since shortly after 9/11, had been allowing the National Security Agency (NSA) to wiretap — without seeking a court warrant — phone calls involving U.S. residents, provided that in each case: (a) at least one party to the call was situated overseas, and (b) the American was a known contact of a terrorist organization.

So these creeps who stood and decried that action, threatening impeachment, are today telling us to “calm down” over revelations Obama is spying on everything we do, because this is not new.  Well that is a lie – IT IS NEW, because what Obama has done is to direct the NSA to WIRETAP ALL AMERICAN CITIZENS.  And not just phone calls, but everything we do online, everything we purchase and anything we write or donate to.

And the Ruling Class Statists who hated Bush because he was not a MarxoFascist – are today applauding and defending what Obama has done.

Which is to turn America into a giant gulag.

U.S. Collects Vast Data Trove

NSA Monitoring Includes Three Major Phone Companies, as Well as Online Activity

The National Security Agency’s monitoring of Americans includes customer records from the three major phone networks as well as emails and Web searches, and the agency also has cataloged credit-card transactions, said people familiar with the agency’s activities.

The disclosure this week of an order by a secret U.S. court for Verizon Communications Inc.’s phone records set off the latest public discussion of the program. But people familiar with the NSA’s operations said the initiative also encompasses phone-call data from AT&T Inc. and Sprint Nextel Corp., records from Internet-service providers and purchase information from credit-card providers.

…Meanwhile, the Obama administration acknowledged Thursday a secret NSA program dubbed Prism, which a senior administration official said targets only foreigners and was authorized under U.S. surveillance law. The Washington Post and the Guardian reported earlier Thursday the existence of the previously undisclosed program, which was described as providing the NSA and FBI direct access to server systems operated by tech companies that includeGoogle Inc.,  Apple Inc., Facebook Inc., Yahoo Inc., Microsoft Corp. and Skype. The newspapers, citing what they said was an internal NSA document, said the agencies received the contents of emails, file transfers and live chats of the companies’ customers as part of their surveillance activities of foreigners whose activity online is routed through the U.S. The companies mentioned denied knowledge or participation in the program.

…NSA also obtains access to data from Internet service providers on Internet use such as data about email or website visits, several former officials said. NSA has established similar relationships with credit-card companies, three former officials said.

It couldn’t be determined if any of the Internet or credit-card arrangements are ongoing, as are the phone company efforts, or one-shot collection efforts. The credit-card firms, phone companies and NSA declined to comment for this article.

Your Phone Records Are Not The Only Things Obama’s Regime Is Collecting From You

ObamaSpyingBeleiveIn

A Secret Federal Government Program called PRISM taps into U.S. Internet companies, extracting audio, video, photographs, e-mails, documents and connection logs that enable analysts to track a person’s movements and contacts over time.

Welcome to Obama’s Soviet Amerika Comrades, where just yesterday it was revealed that the Obama regime has been collecting data on ALL cell phone customers of Verizon by a SECRET COURT ORDER.

Tonight we learn that there’s ANOTHER SECRET FEDERAL PROGRAM called PRISM, which logs directly into the 9 major internet service provider servers, and collects every shred of data from your e-mails, to your pictures, to the videos and websites you visit – in order to track a person and create a profile of you for the government.

If you wondered WHY the major internet companies have been petitioned to the White House over the years, it is because they have been “asked” to cooperate with the Government so that their customers can have their information collected.  We used to call that spying.  It is formally known as FASCISM; when a private company is run by or controlled via regulation by the government to act as one of it’s agents.

Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, PalTalk, AOL, Skype, YouTube, Apple and other internet service providers including Cloud sharing services are part of the government’s efforts to collect every shred of information they can glean from you.  From your politics to your likes and dislikes, to your movements.  These private companies are actually defacto agents for the Obama State.

PRISM conspirators

Which is why I refer to Obama and the Democrats and the GOP Leadership as MarxoFascists – because that is what they are.  Fascists who love the ideals of Marx and all-powerful government running every aspect of your life.  Obtaining every shred of information about your life.

Not the Soviets, not the East Germans not Mao’s Chinese had such a widespread spy network being used against it’s own citizens as we are learning of Obama’s vast secret spy and intimidation programs.

And please, before you try to rationalize this additional government snooping program as necessary for security – do recall that it was just last month that Jihadists bombed the Boston Marathon and had law enforcement and government running around like Keystone cops trying to find and apprehend them.  None of this massive data collected prevented that from happening, and I daresay – that is not the intent behind the collection of every shred of evidence about you.  It’s not about keeping Americans safe from Jihadists.  It’s about keeping Obama and his MarxoFascists safe from you.

Obama did exactly what he said he was going to do – fundamentally transform this country.  And in five years, he has transformed America into a Police State gulag ready to go to war on the citizens he despises.

When does any of this become treason in the minds of those we elected to be our servants?  Just today Obama opened up unlimited U.S. airspace to Saudi Arabia, meaning they can FLY PLANES to any airport in the USA without any restrictions whatsoever.  I guess 19 hijackers, a majority of whom were from Saudi Arabia who flew planes into our buildings on 9-11, is something Obama figures Americans have forgotten.  Now we simply have to ask how long it will be before a Saudi Airliner is fitted with a nuke from say – Pakistan, Iran or North Korea for detonation over a major American city??

Meanwhile, the MarxoFascists and their stooges are lecturing us that we should be GLAD that the federal Government is spying on us, collecting vast sums of data on us.  From our finances, to our e-mails to our interests on the web to our medical records, of which will be all handled for enforcement by the IRS, that wonderful weapon used to target Obama’s political enemies.

I truly cannot keep up with how much and how fast our former Republic has fallen into tyranny.  Before we realize it – death panels are going to become camps.

Documents: U.S. intelligence mining data from nine U.S. Internet companies in broad secret program

The National Security Agency and the FBI are tapping directly into the central servers of nine leading U.S. Internet companies, extracting audio, video, photographs, e-mails, documents and connection logs that enable analysts to track a person’s movements and contacts over time.

The highly classified program, code-named PRISM, has not been disclosed publicly before.

Link only folks.  It is after all the Compost.

Next Scandal: PhoneGate – Obama Is Collecting Your Phone Call Records

wiretapping obama

Obama’s NSA collecting the phone records of millions of Americans daily, without warrant, oversight or your permission.

Welcome to Obama’s Amerika folks, the Soviet Utopia, reconstituted on the rotting corruption of our once free nation.

Breaking from  the Guardian in the UK, Townhall reports that Obama’s National Security Agency has mandated that phone-provider Verizon, provide on an on-going daily-basis, the phone records of it’s customers.

Funny thing is, I recall how BESERK the anti-war Leftists went when it was learned that President Bush was wiretapping foreign phone calls from Jihadist nations INTO the USA.  Today – DEAD SILENCE.

It was never about our liberties for the anti-war Left.  It’s about the advancement of their ‘Marxist revolution’ and always has been.

But just ask yourself – what in the world does Obama need with YOUR phone records?  WHOM you talk to?  What ‘unique identifiers’ (key words in your conversation) are they listening for?

Given what this regime was just found doing to AP, this looks to be more of the same gulag-like police-state data collections that many of us are warning you all is taking place.  Eric Holder’s Department of Justice cast a wide net in his search of AP phone logs, as evidenced in his agency naming journalist James Rosen a co-conspirator in an espionage charge in order to obtain all his phone records, but  now we learn that this practice of going after private phone records is not just limited to high-profile critics of the Obama regime, but everyday average Joe and Jill’s as the NSA is targeting millions of Americans for daily data collection.

The purpose?  Well, it creates an atmosphere of fear of saying anything against Obama and this regime or it’s agenda.  It catalogs whom you associate with, and provides the regime with anything and everything you say and associate with for potential charges in the near future.

Think that far-fetched?  You might want to consider what U.S. attorney Bill Killian at Obama’s DOJ just said yesterday.  He stated that saying anything negative about Islam violates the Civil Rights laws of Muslims and they WILL start prosecuting for that violation: “Could an Internet posting or letter in the mail or a phone call or a personal confrontation (against Islam) constitute a violation of those statutes?” he asked, citing 18 US Code 241 and 18 US Code 245. “Yes, it could.”

“In its latest effort to protect followers of Islam in the U.S., the Obama Justice Department warns against using social media to spread information considered inflammatory against Muslims, threatening that it could constitute a violation of civil rights,”

Understand now why potentially, Obama is collecting all our phone records?

This is how the Soviet Union’s tyranny worked – EVERYONE was automatically considered  a criminal by the state, and anything you ever said, did or thought that could be used as a pretext for your arrest was what the Soviet did.  We should not marvel at this.  It’s what every single despotic Left regime does to their own people when it puts down the iron fist of tyranny.

Welcome to Obama’s gulag

JUST IN: NSA Collecting Phone Records of Millions of Americans Daily

Heather Ginsberg | Jun 05, 2013

Well here’s another scandal ready for the Obama administration. It was revealed today that the National Security Agency is currently collecting the telephone records of millions of US customers of Verizon. This top secret order was issued in April.

The order, a copy of which has been obtained by the Guardian, requires Verizon on an “ongoing, daily basis” to give the NSA information on all telephone calls in its systems, both within the US and between the US and other countries.

The document shows for the first time that under the Obama administration the communication records of millions of US citizens are being collected indiscriminately and in bulk – regardless of whether they are suspected of any wrongdoing.

The secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (Fisa) granted the order to the FBI on April 25, giving the government unlimited authority to obtain the data for a specified three-month period ending on July 19.

Under the terms of the blanket order, the numbers of both parties on a call are handed over, as is location data, call duration, unique identifiers, and the time and duration of all calls. The contents of the conversation itself are not covered.

Here is just another example of the government overreaching into the lives of millions of Americans without our permission. The Guardian reports:

The unlimited nature of the records being handed over to the NSA is extremely unusual. Fisa court orders typically direct the production of records pertaining to a specific named target who is suspected of being an agent of a terrorist group or foreign state, or a finite set of individually named targets.

The Guardian approached the National Security Agency, the White House and the Department of Justice for comment in advance of publication on Wednesday. All declined. The agencies were also offered the opportunity to raise specific security concerns regarding the publication of the court order.

The court order expressly bars Verizon from disclosing to the public either the existence of the FBI’s request for its customers’ records, or the court order itself.

Talk about a breach of privacy! Are you kidding me?! This administration has gone beyond any standards set by other administrations with this new unlimited order. What is it that the administration feels they need these documents for?

A type of data collection similar to this was started after 9/11/01, but was not nearly as widespread or as far reaching as this new order given in April. It seems from this order, the administration is trying to look at Americans’ communication habits and who we are talking to.

This is a whole new low for the Obama administration. Now we are seeing government reaching into our phone records? No longer is it just the media and Fox News reporters, but now every American can be watched by the NSA. Will this finally be what puts Liberals over the edge? They were against it when Bush did a much smaller version. Now we can see how far the hypocrisy goes. Will Jay Carney be able to comment on this? How will the Obama administration defend themselves now?

Here’s the article that broke the story:

Revealed: NSA collecting phone records of millions of Americans daily

Exclusive: Top secret court order requiring Verizon to hand over all call data shows scale of domestic surveillance under Obama

The National Security Agency is currently collecting the telephone records of millions of US customers of Verizon, one of America’s largesttelecoms providers, under a top secret court order issued in April.

The order, a copy of which has been obtained by the Guardian, requires Verizon on an “ongoing, daily basis” to give the NSA information on all telephone calls in its systems, both within the US and between the US and other countries.
