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:
- *OBAMA ORDER CREATES NEW AUTHORITY TO RESPOND TO CYBER THREATS TO BE USED IN ‘TARGETED MANNER’
- *OBAMA ORDER ALLOWS SANCTIONS FOR 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.
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?
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.
“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.
This is an excuse to take down the sites they don’t like.
And when the time comes, they will do so.
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?
Learn to use Wireshark (When you have connectivity problems). It’s better than guessing.
Hate to advertise, but one of my products is called SmartRouter. We address many of your network/security issues. Not your Amazon special. My local network gets attacked by approximately 160 +/- different IP addresses per day. MS out of Redmond, WA shows up regularly. They are still trying to figure out my security.
I warned those PONZI schemers.
Baloney. If Obama had taken total control of the internet you, Mac and I would be on our way to da pokey.
Who PhotoShopped that ethernet cord in his hand?
He’s holding it like it’s Michelle’s cock.
That’s fucking awesome! and true!
It’s really a golf club just like the so-called shotgun was.
NOPE we might be 6 feet under but all i know will NOT go without a fight period!
All things in good time. You may yet get your wish to go to da pokey. No hurry, they know where to find you.
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. 🙂
And if thee pigeons don’t fly, eat them
Jo-Sam, maybe it’s not your turn yet…you know the govt, hurry up and wait…
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.
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
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.
This is a EO is from February 2013, not a new one!
Obumma does not have complete control of the Internet..
It is April first probably the best day for them to try something
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……
Got us pegged. Heres a cookie
What can one say or do anymore??
I wish he would take a 2 year vacation…..
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.
If they destroy Free Internet, we will have more time to prepare/organize to fight the traitors, FreeSlave– be thankful!
This started with Cheney/Bush regime, FreeSalave, don’t you remember the Patriot Act and Bush saying the constitution was just a (curseword) piece of paper? This not Lib/Conserv thing.. this is a takeover by Gestatpo Homeland Insecurity– created during the Bush years!
Sure Bush did some awful things, but PLEASE don’t tell me you’re a liberal!
Watch the E Trade video…. Yall need a laugh….
I was eating honey roasted peanuts while I watched this and just choked!! LOVE that baby…needed the laugh. I’m OK now.
Now that’s funny. Actually did that once, I was buying $1000 dollars of a stock and added a couple zeros! Yeah I read the confirming Email and freaked. Stock had gone up a quarter point, I sold and made a months salary in ten minutes. Smiled and went to change my shorts! Never did that again!
Bwahahahahahaha yeah right fucktards.
Shillitary turds murdered unarmed civilians in the Bonus March and they will do it again. Who gave the order to fire? MacArthur, Patton, and Eisenhower among others. You know, the great military heroes everybody loves. Patton who was famed for his “insubordination” hahahaha don’t make me laugh more like “obsession with self-aggrandizement”. Duty honor country my fucking big left testicle.
Black Jack Gen. Pershing. Gave the order.
Correction President Hoover wanted them cleared out.
MacAuthur did the dirty work with tanks and calvary
I’d pay them all to stay on the golf course!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My very person………LMAO……I’ll piss on his leg.
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.
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.
Here is the Cliff Notes version: We have NEVER spied on the American people…….OK,now will admit it……A little bird told me that EVERY Apple product gets sent to the NSA before it goes on sale to the public…….what a bunch of meatwhistles!
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.
I just upped my router from 64 bit to 128 bit.
I have read of Emergency Broadcast messages scrolling across certain areas of the country and then shrugged off. Between the Jade Helm thing and Iran/ Saudi Arabia/Yemen/Israel….I think we could wake up one morning and be in for a few surprises.
Have a blessed Easter everyone. I know my Redeemer lives.
Had an ebs yesterday is so-cal. Seemed out of place cuz it wasn’t followed by the classic…”this is a test. This is only a test.”
Mac- just an FYI… I’ve been posting for years. You should have my email or IP address.
CF, try including an email addy when posting comments ( even a fake one) – use the same email each time and the system should auto-recognize you in short order .
I guess that says it all.
YOU AND EVERYTHING YOU OWN, YOUR CHILDREN AND YOUR CHILDERN’S CHILDREN, BELONG TO ME…
well, if they infiltrate/close down the Internet (that is, obliterate real, legitimate websites and replace them with more bullshit/propaganda like Fox news)… then there will be nothing left for us to do except to spend our whole time on nothing but preparing for their next onslaught… meaning, collecting as much ammunition/armor as possible, get ready to live a more sustainable life style and target practice everyday! (there is good in everything!
I can focus on, and do, more than one thing at a time.
(When they closed down the Internet in other countries, that’s when the people REALLY went bezeerk, revolted, etc.)
Really? Link please.
Just type in Arab Spring
The “Arab Spring” is a CIA operation to destabilize the middle east. It has been aimed at every country that the west thinks needs “friendlier” leaders.
Here’s a link for you, but there are many more, you just have to dig deeper than the first 2-3 search results pages.
“How Arab Spring Opened the Door to Terrorism’s Ugly March”
AND WE ALL KNOW WHO CONTROLS AND FUNDS THE “TERRORISTS”
Yep, it just keeps getting worse and worse with these idiots who are in charge. It seems like a massive gray/black cloud hovers over the earth, everything seems to be escalating to the point of no return, crime, tyranical politicians, repression, supression, threats, govt. over-reach, ass-hole terrorist, sodomites that think everyone should accept their lifestyle, illegals, minorities who believe America owes them “something”, race-baiters, it goes on and one. So, what can we do? Nothing.
I’m sorry for keep posting comments, but you have no idea how much I hate that person!!!
(Of course they are going to “centralize the Internet” just like they are “centralizing” the police force and just like they are joining the social security agency with the DMV (a cop at DMV told me this when I complained about a national ID card)… that’s what dictators do– what Hitler did– centralization of everything (power in the hands of a few rather than it being spread out) makes it easier to convert us to a fully operational Police [email protected] That is exactly what Hitler did!
EXACTLY RIGHT, AND THEN THE FREE OBAMA LAPTOPS COME.I CAN AFFORD MORE TAXES IF I TAKE BEEF OUT OF MY DIET. YOU KNOW INTERNET IS A NECESSITY NOW./sarc/
That was signed 2 years ago.
“That was signed 2 years ago.”
The Constitution was signed and ratified more than 200 years ago…does that make it any less relevant?
No, just saying the story is a little late. calm down.
It’s hard to measure inflection of typing. Apologies.
Come on! We knew this was going to happen. Keep on prepping. It is what it is and they will do what they please until they meet resistance.
Go to Norse : http://map.ipviking.com/
A LOT of attacks on the US are coming from within the US and odd places like the middle of the ocean . . . Barry being bad again.
`This is all just par for the course, along with everything else the comi’s are doing in D.C. The gov’t has to be in total control of everything in order for anything to work the way its supposed too. The Fed can take a simple childs day dream and turn it into a Freddie Kruger flipping nightmare. We are not going to be able to talk about these matters in the near future. Its long past time for a revolt. Good Night Louise
Any sensible person can tell the internet is broken; those nasty preppers can still buy evil black guns and armor-piercing cop-killing ammo at fascist websites. . .
Jimmy Carter, looking good. How is all that hope and change doing for ya?
Can you say, Nuclear Prolification. Hahahahaha!
OOOO in an emergency did anyone really think the Gov would not take over the internet and every other utility in common use? food water energy etc… of course they will you didn’t know that already?
The last thing Obammy wants is the truth getting out …. he’s got the media censored right onto his pocket and all he needs now is to keep everyone from talking to each other ….
If the internet is shut down I’ll guarantee there’ll be some BS reason why all the phone communications need to be monitored right into oblivion ….
Don’t be too surprised when the black vans start hauling off the ham radios guys along with their equipment …. a quik missile hit will take care of the sneaky ones ….
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.
You better wake up. While the EO is indeed a couple of years old the new reality is that just last month the FCC declared the internet a public utility. That means they own it now and can do whatever they want with it.
When the time comes, they’ll pay dearly, cause I plan to stand my ground and take as many of them as I can with me.
Now, watch out fur them hogs!
Welcome to the club!;-}. N.R. N.S. You will not be standing alone!!!!
I really think we all knew it would come to this. The Internet gives even the little guy like me power, knowledge and freedom. TPTB don’t want you to have that, oh no they cant control you when you have them so they will do everything in there power to limit it.
THE HOLE COUNTRY IS A JOKE NOW
I swallowed a bug.
I hope it was not an electronic bug!!!!
If it was a regular old bug it was all protein!;-}
Unless it was a stink bug, eesh
Barry de Fairy is afraid that one of his butt-buddies might post some pics that he doesn’t want seen. Or maybe Michelle’s family has a few baby pic when she/he was a little boy? So he wants to control content.
Even better, some pics of Barry when he was a lad back in St. Petersburg Russia studying at the KGB academy?
Or maybe He’s really-really-really upset at the mean things people write about him on the internet, boo-hoo, poor Barry!
He had better, watch out fur them hogs!
Maybe if were lucky they will just shut down all the I-phones. can’t you just imagine all those poor folks walking around outside (much for the first time) looking up at the sky and there phone trying to find a “bar”!! Ha,HA,HA. Oh my god now they’ll actualy have to talk!!!!
What’s this I hear about the army and marine corps combining?
There is no fucking point to the modern Marine Corps. It functions just like a second army. Plus the competition for funding between the two is a fucking pain in the ass worthless waste of time. Never faithful, those fucking Marines. Fuckers.
There’s no point to acid being here.
Acid can kiss every serving military’s persons ass. Bet he never served and for certain not the Marines. Every one of them would kick his sorry ass!
Wasn’t asking you pedofag
zer0 is correct, as there is an “National Emergency” in this country. The national emergency is a Marxist takeover of the US Govt…..
More bullshit from a bullshit decimanating site for the shit for brains sheeple.
More BS from shit for brains D and C. Put down the crack pipe.
Looks like they have the final peice of the puzzle in place with out even Firing a shot. We are now under Martial law and the sheeple dont even know it.
I hope this Administration for the past six years Rots in hell for what thay’ve done..
Looking for a little advice. I’m thinking about shaking loose with a little cash. Just wondering if anyone could tell me which sight would be the best for “old tired eyes” that don’t use glasses yet, Aimpoint or EOTech, need something for my AR. All input appreciated. Trekker Out.
give this a read trekker http://www.theprepperjournal.com/2015/03/14/what-is-the-best-ar-15-scope-for-shtf/
LLLEEETTTSSS GGGGEEETTT RRREEEAAADDDYYY TTTOOO RRRUMMBBBLLLEEEE!!!!!
heck with that rumble crap. I am going shopping.
They will have to pry the net from my cold dead fingers!Oh,and pick up their mercenary vermin friends I took with me!
I enjoy tremendously reading three year old articles pawned off like they are current events. Nice going “Jerky”.
The big USA corporations like Facebook and Google along with Twitter already control the internet and all were seeded by NSA/CIA finance.
Tweets something that Twitter agrees with like “@Obama must go” and millions of people get to read it but say something like “@Microsoft is spying” and hardly a sole get to read it.
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!!!
There is NO provision in the Constitution for EOs to bypass Congress. ALL Executive Orders are illegal.
yes but look at all the wimps we have in congress that haven’t lifted a finger to throw out all his previous unconstitutional actions
