    New Executive Order: Obama Takes Total Control of Internet: Declares ‘National Cyber Security Emergency’

    It should be obvious given the recent hacks against essential infrastructure that America faces a major cyber security threat from foreign governments and rogue organizations. In just the last few years it has been reported that hackers have infiltrated everything from critical physical components that manage water utilities to 23 orbiting spacecraft managed by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The problems have been highlighted by major cyber security firms like Symantec and McAfee.

    The threat is real and the government knows it. In an open letter to her successor, outgoing Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano warned that a massive attack against the U.S. power grid is imminent.

    Notoriously known as “Big Sis” for her role at the Orwellian mega-agency, she claims the supposed ‘imminent’ event will pose challenges to all aspects of life, and make powering homes, providing food and facilitating transportation difficult. Napolitano seems so sure, one wonders how she knows that such a catastrophe is not only possible, but sure to happen, as she prepares to officially leave office September 6th.

    The outgoing Homeland Security Secretary has a warning for her successor: A massive and “serious” cyber attack on the U.S. homeland is coming, and a natural disaster — the likes of which the nation has never seen — is also likely on its way.

    But while private and public organizations should be working to secure their networks and prevent outside access to components that could bring down the grid, the question of how much involvement is required by the Federal government has now come to the forefront.

    According to the Obama Administration’s latest move, it is apparent that they believe central control is the only solution.

    As such, President Obama has issued a new Executive Order that, for all intents and purposes, cedes total control of the internet and domestic infrastructure to the U.S. government.

    It’s business as usual in Washington. President Obama has just signed another Executive Order declaring a National Emergency to deal with cyber threats:


    This new authority, yet another layer of government oversight, we are sure is for your own protection and in Obama’s words will “augment work to fight cyber threats.” All your internet is belong to us…

    The national and economic security of the United States depends on the reliable functioning of the Nation’s critical infrastructure in the face of such threats. It is the policy of the United States to enhance the security and resilience of the Nation’s critical infrastructure and to maintain a cyber environment that encourages efficiency, innovation, and economic prosperity while promoting safety, security, business confidentiality, privacy, and civil liberties.

    We can achieve these goals through a partnership with the owners and operators of critical infrastructure to improve cybersecurity information sharing and collaboratively develop and implement risk-based standards.

    Full Executive Order via Zero Hedge

    The new Executive Order will, among other things, give the government access to all infrastructure components that they deem critical to national security. That means everything from physical power grid components to virtual servers like your web hosting company.

    As used in this order, the term critical infrastructure means systems and assets, whether physical or virtual, so vital to the United States that the incapacity or destruction of such systems and assets would have a debilitating impact on security, national economic security, national public health or safety, or any combination of those matters.

    So, basically everything that is connected to a network now falls under the control of the U.S. government. And whatever policy the government says needs to be followed will be followed.

    The Cybersecurity Framework shall include a set of standards, methodologies, procedures, and processes that align policy, business, and technological approaches to address cyber risks.

    The E.O. stops short of getting into certain policy specifics, especially regarding what to do in the event a cyber security attack to our critical infrastructure is identified, but given that the President has already reserved the right to shut down the internet using a kill switch as he deems necessary, we can take a pretty good guess at what would happen, and we’re fairly certain that this will soon be written into policy. Whether those regulations will be made available to the public remains unclear.

    What we do know is that this executive order, combined with a previous action by Obama known as the Executive Doomsday Order, gives the President jurisdiction over not just the internet, but every resource in America, including your very person:

    The latest executive order signed by President Obama on March 16, 2012 makes clear that in the event of a nationally deemed emergency all of these resources will fall under the authority of the United States government.

    The signing of the National Defense Resources Preparedness executive order grants the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Agriculture, the Department of Labor, the Department of Defense and other agencies complete control of all US resources, including the ability to seize, confiscate or re-delegate resources, materials, services, and facilities as deemed necessary or appropriate to promote the national defense as delegated by the following agencies

    Full report here: Executive Doomsday Order: Obama Authorizes Gov to Seize Farms, Food, Processing Plants, Energy Resources, Transportation, Skilled Laborers During National Emergency

    There is apparently a national emergency in America, and as we know, the politicians in D.C. can never let a good crisis go to waste.

    Now all they need is another crisis, whether real or imagined, to implement what will be nothing short of martial law on the streets of America.

      So, is the freaking noose tight enough yet?

      • FreeSlave says:

        Dem! This EO in conjunction with Jade Helm 15 plus all the other wicked and horrible stuff the Christ-hating Libs are doing has me greatly concerned.

        • SterlingSilver says:

          “GOVERNMENT” — If it isn’t broken, they’ll fix it until it is.

          • Im a SCADA Administrator and have been involved in many industrial and municipal data projects.
            I say BS.
            Your network is only vulnerable if you allow it to be vulnerable.
            There was a time 10 years ago or so when anyone could break into your network and do as they wished but those days are long gone.
            SCADA principles have moved away from control and gone to data acquisition and monitoring and away from actual control.
            Remote control is always dangerous and while at times it is necessary, it usually requires an onsite live person to either enter a code or flip a switch to allow activation of anything other than routine , non critical events. Otherwise the likelihood of killing someone accidently is quite high.
            Centralized control only enables hackers and bad guys to cause problems.
            The utilities, power and gas have lo0ng been reliant on money from the government for their profitability and have gone to great lengths to ensure that the government makes huge amounts of cash available to them for providing their infrastructure.
            My recommendation is invest in yourself and buy solar or wind or what ever system that will help you because we are being extorted again and these things never end well.

                Interesting that my internet access has been down all day, until just now, midnight. I ran new cords, rebooted everything with a reset button and checked everything that mattered—nothing. Then, I go back to my compute a few minutes ago and POOF! it’s magically back on!

                All the lights said everything was a go. My computer said I was connected to the internet, but I could not bring up a page…any page. Something doesn’t smell right with this.

                A service guy will be bringing me a new router tomorrow, but I think I’ll hang on to this one. According to recent news, the NSA has been installing spy components in routers. I also have an OLD router that still works. Maybe one of them is spyware free.

                Anybody else experiencing weird shit like this?

              • durangokidd says:

                Government has always had control of the Internet and its architectures, systems, and networks, so no one should be surprised about this. Realistically, I don’t see much choice.

                There are bad guys out there, some worse than our own government who would do US real harm through the Net. Real harm, meaning banking, utilities, business secrets, military preparedness, etc.

                The next internet evolution will be quantum computing and it will give US the privacy we seek (I hope) while giving the PTB the ability to make US use digital money in lieu of cash.

                Every technology that brings US progress is usually a two edged sword that can be used for well or ill. Better the devil we know: Obola; than the devil we don’t.

                If you want complete privacy send your messages by homing pigeons. 🙂

            • sixpack says:

              Jo-Sam, maybe it’s not your turn yet…you know the govt, hurry up and wait…

            • Plan twice, prep once says:

              Jo-Sam, it’s all about control.
              Declaring a national emergency activates reams of DHS laws passed since 911. It’s now perfectly legal to spy on and monitor Americans and redefine any activity they engage in as potential terrorism.

              So if you go on the Internet and buy a couple cases of ammo for the summer at the range, they can declare you a terrorist and the FBI will become your new best friend. Buy some gold coins, and shaman you are on the list for confiscation.

        • maddog says:

          FreeSlave I posted here on SHTFplan a couple years ago when some were asking when they should mobilize that when the internet was taken over would be their signal. Looks like that time is near. I agree with you on JH15 however I think its even worse. There was the test of the EBS yesterday and military movements already underway. I think their prepositioning. Here in NV there seems to be much more activity in recent weeks. Stay alert my friend.

          Mac, is there a way to find past posts without going through every old article? Tks

          • sixpack says:

            I think they were prepositioning a long time ago, when they first started giving out MRAPS and military surplus weapons to Barney Fife’s across the country. If/when they decide to, the Feds can just walk into any cop shop and commandeer what they’ve had stored there…any time they like.

            The Feds just used police stations for free storage.

        • A Christan Man says:

          This is a EO is from February 2013, not a new one!

          Obumma does not have complete control of the Internet..

          FALSE INFO

      • Stan522 says:

        Let’s just face the facts…. we all are just going to be sitting around bitching about the latest chairman EO, or the latest plan for military exercise on US soil (Jade Helm), or another fee, fine, or law that takes more of our freedoms away and we all will just be running to our computers and peck away telling everyone what we plan to do then next time they pull some bull crap……

      What can one say or do anymore??
      I wish he would take a 2 year vacation…..

      • FreeSlave says:


        I’m relying, hoping, praying, and begging for a secret coordinated insurgency among our branches of military, our National Guard, state police, local police, and county sheriffs to REBEL against unlawful orders issued by Obola and the Libs.

        This rebellion means shooting and killing their colleagues who are obeying and following Obola’s orders for various degrees of martial law implementation.

        We need mutiny. We need both sides accusing each other of treason. The Libs and their military minions will be accusing the Patriots of treason and unlawful disobedience and rebellion. And the Patriots will accuse the Libs of treason and other unconstitutional violations.

        The only problem is this: I don’t believe there’s ever been an incident of military disobedience to an order issued by Commander in Chief. This has to be a first time.

        And it has to be coordinated, well-planned, and outside of the NSA Big Brother’s eyes.

        If not, then the Lib Military Command will just easily pick off individual preppers and militias with little to no problem.

      My very person………LMAO……I’ll piss on his leg.

    4. Neal Jensen says:

      The Surveillance Police State cannot run AT ALL if they lose the power to control communications, and surveil those communications..Just losing eletricity over a 1/3 of the country would most likely bring the Obamanation down…

      People being freed of their constant brainwashing efforts and media and not having any electronic gizmos to distract them, would be FORCED to live in the real world and confront all the realities of it. In 72 hours, NO organized government would have any control….No matter how desparate they became to restore it.

      • Neal Jensen says:

        To add a thought to my comment above.. SOLELY because the US operates in a de facto 3 day / 72 hour on demand economy or “just in time” economy, anything outside of that world that holds up a creature comfort condition people are accustomed to, that derail or interrupts it, would become a very rapid declination into chaos as people would not be able to cope with that sudden death of their standard of living.

        • sixpack says:

          I read that foreign countries will not buy routers from us, because the NSA has been intercepting them and replacing internal components to give them access to every router, all the time, regardless of encryption.

    21. Newbie says:

      Guess I am missing the April Fool’s Day joke or something. Because this particular executive order (13636—Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity) does not cede control of the internet or anything else. Nor is it new. It’s from 2013, and the intent, whether idiotic or impractical, is to allow information sharing. Meaning, the government will now “alert” private corporations when they have been subject to cyber attack, and form committees and “consult” on such matters….because the guys down in D.C. are utterly incompetent.

      Take away the internet, however, and they just might wake up the dead hordes. Finally.

      They can pull the plug on that one any time they like for me but since i talk zero’s and ones and know we are far from running out of Ipv4 addresses (Could write a book on this one) then it won’t stop me connecting to the free world.

      People like me built the internet and we now know that we need to take control back of our internet and to keep scum like Google in check.

      What they(Mega Bankers and Leftists) are counting on is that Our Brothers and Sisters in the Armed Forces will just fall in line and start Destroying America and Americans!!!
      Maybe a few that can’t Think for themselves or have feelings for their country or Family, Friends and their Country; but I personally feel that most of Brothers and Sisters will Fight for Their Country and not act like DUMBOCRATS(Not Democrats)and Fight and Kill Fellow Americans!!!
