In the destructive wake of the Federal Communications
Commission overstepping their constitutional bounds
and seizing control of the Internet, we now have
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid introducing
legislation that could be setting the stage for
even greater federal control of the Internet —
including giving Obama an “Internet kill switch”
during a government declared emergency. See below
for details and action items.
Not satisfied with seizing control of the Internet through
the Federal Communications Commission, Senate Majority Leader
Harry Reid has now re-introduced the Cyber Security Act of
2011 (S.21), which would grant the Department of Homeland
Security sweeping and far-reaching powers to regulate,
ration, and restrict the Internet during times of emergency.
What constitutes an “emergency”?
According to Reid’s bill, “nearly every single American citizen
is touched by cyberspace and is threatened by cyber attacks.”
He continues, “Malicious actors in cyberspace have already
caused significant damage to the U.S. Government.”
Who are these malicious actors?
It certainly isn’t a stretch to consider that anyone
or any group opposed to the federal government’s
statist actions could be considered a “malicious
actor” and therefore be subject to the censorship
and regulation that Reid is proposing. Could this
be a clever liberal plan to silence conservatives
and Tea Party Americans?
Don, regardless of the true intentions of the FCC takeover
and Reid’s legislation, the fact is, unless Americans speak
up against Internet control, further erosion of our rights
The only way to end this threat and restore and preserve
Free Speech rights is for citizens like you to express
their outrage to their lawmakers on Capitol Hill —
demanding a full investigation into the actions of the
FCC and challenging Reid’s legislation.
And since you’ve already added your name to our petition
calling for an end to the federal takeover of the Internet,
the next step is for citizens to express their concern and
outrage directly to their lawmakers.
