Mr. and Mrs. Internet User:

This is a most important email. It deals with the authority that Barack Obama has already given himself, via the Secretarial Order that he authorized the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to issue when it assumed control of the Internet on December 21, 2010. Inserted into the FCC regulations is a “kill-switch” that will let Mr. Obama shut down the Internet—and immediately make your First Amendment free speech rights disappear—should the White House feel that a threat exists on the information superhighway.

You are watching it happen, RIGHT NOW, in Egypt. It was “test-driven” in Australia on September 2, 2009, when that nation enacted its own cybersecurity law. And, with the FCC poised as the caretaker of the onramps to the information superhighway, it can now happen here in the United States as well.

We need to KILL the “kill-switch” powers that Mr. Obama has given to the FCC to give to him.

Thank you,

Gary G. Kreep, Esq.

A special message from:

Fellow American Patriot,

If you’re like me, you’ve been glued to your television and have watched what’s going on in Egypt and the Middle East. It’s mind-boggling. The demonstrations in Egypt started over high unemployment and a lack of jobs, but spread quickly to encompass the lack of free speech, the lack of honest elections, and police brutality. The protests, organized via the Internet, Facebook and other social communication networks were planned to be a one day protest. The Egyptian government’s attempt to silence the people expanded the protest into a melee that caught the eye of the world.

Over-reacting, the Egyptian government triggered the “kill-switch,” and shut down access to the Internet by all of its citizens. You might say: “Well, that could never happen here in the United States. We have a Constitution. We have free speech.” Granted, Egypt doesn’t. Or, rather, it has “free speech” based on the United Nation’s International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which means that they possess only those rights allowed by government, as long as government allows them. Free speech rights in the rest of the world are privileges that a government can withdraw at will.

But, make no mistake about it: What happened in Egypt can happen here. Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak’s government enacted a law that gave him the right, in times of a “national emergency,” to exercise the “kill-switch” and and shut down the Internet. Barack Obama authorized the FCC to give him that authority—not Congress, mind you, his own underling, gave him the authority to shut down the Internet if the White House perceives there to be a national emergency.

The main components of U.S. Senator Jay Rockefeller’s Cyber-Security Act of 2009 (which failed to get out of a Senate Committee) were adopted by the current FCC (by a vote of 3-2) when, on December 21, 2010, Mr. Obama’s guidelines were voted on for implementation. One of them was the power for the Commander-in-Chief to use the “Internet Killswitch” in the event of a national emergency.

Please CLICK HERE to FAX every Member of Congress TODAY to urge them to use their oversight authority over the FCC, to kill not only Barack Obama’s “Kill-switch,” but all of the guidelines implemented by the FCC in December. Members of Congress need to have Congressional Committee hearings to stop the FCC, and to stop Mr. Obama’s right to use an Internet “kill-switch” to block America’s access to the Internet And, remember that three federal judges have already ruled that the FCC lacks the authority to assume control of the Internet. Please be sure to send a generous DONATION to The United States Justice Foundation (USJF) to fight this battle until Congress rescinds those FCC regulations.

Our Constitutional freedoms are once again at stake! This time, since other nations are exercising the “executive right” to deny their people freedom of speech, the FCC believes that the Executive of the United States should have that power as well.

Muslim protestors in Los Angeles stand in solidarity with Egyptian protestors. Even without Egyptian access to the Internet, LA protestors chant, “We hear you, Egypt!”

When Egyptian President Mubarak cut off (“kill-switched”) the Internet into Egypt, Google patched a make-shift system into Egypt which allowed Egyptians to get their message out. When the the Egyptian government realized what had happened, they reopened the onramps to the Egyptian information superhighway.

This new Obama controlled FCC issued regulation has given Barack Obama, or the Department of Homeland Security, the un-Constitutional authority to shutdown the internet in the United States, if the Administration feels there is a “terrorist” threat. He can shut YOU, AND ALL OF US, down!

Please CLICK HERE to FAX every Member of Congress TODAY to urge them to use their oversight authority over the FCC, to kill not only Obama’s “Kill-switch,” but, also, all of the guidelines implemented by the FCC in December. Members of Congress need to have Congressional Committee hearings to stop the FCC and to stop Mr. Obama’s Internet “kill-switch,” to block America’s access to the Internet And, remember that three federal judges have already ruled that the FCC lacks the authority to assume control of the Internet.

Does Barack Obama stand ready to use the Hosni Mubarak’s Internet kill-switch? Absolutely. If it is in his best political interest. There is little doubt that Mr. Obama will use the FCC guidelines to implement control of cyberspace if he decides that there is a “national emergency,” for whatever reason. He blatantly insists that the FCC has the right to establish guidelines for the Internet since it regulates the other electronic mediums: radio and television. What Mr. Obama really means is that as long as the American people have unfettered access to the Internet, he needs to be able to limit how they use it… or he will be a one-term visitor at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Make no mistake—Barack Hussein Obama is very determined to undermine the First Amendment by seizing control of Internet free speech under the guise of protecting America’s security. The recent WikiLeaks fiasco has provided Mr. Obama with the rationalization that he needed to increase government control of cyberspace. Freedom and openness must continue to be the governing principles of the Internet.

Both the U. S. Senate and the House of Representatives must stop the FCC’s attempt to expand its REGULATORY EMPIRE. The courts have already ruled that the FCC does not have the authority to expand its power—and that the White House also lacks the authority to expand it. Tell Congress to rein in the FCC—and rein in the White House. According to the federal courts, the Internet is protected by the First Amendment, and every personal website on the Internet is, in their view, a First Amendment protected mini print newspaper.

PLEASE… act right now to tell Congress to KILL THE KILL-SWITCH… and kill the FCC’s unconstitutional seizure of control over the Internet.

Please CLICK HERE to FAX every Member of Congress TODAY to urge them to use their oversight authority over the FCC, to kill not only Obama’s “Kill-switch,” but, also, all of the guidelines implemented by the FCC in December.

The Obama Administration has overstepped its Constitutional boundaries. The kill-switch proves that. That’s why we must Fax every Member of Congress, RIGHT NOW, to stop this government intrusion into our private, on-line, communications.

We have not witnessed this kind of government intrusion since Franklin Delano Roosevelt tried to regulate newspapers in 1933. Freedom of the Press is guaranteed by the First Amendment to the U. S. Constitution. Three federal judges, in three different cases, have ruled specifically that the Internet has the exact same freedoms. But the Obama Administration is trying to control the Internet… and YOU! The United States government cannot abridge the First Amendment because it works too well for the people. That is, after all, why the Founding Fathers added it to the Constitution. A vigilant America is a free America. Freedom grows under a free exchange of ideas. Freedom dies when free speech dies.

This is your fight. This is my fight. This is our fight. Together, we will win it. If we sit and do nothing, we will turn on our computer some morning soon, and discover an error message that says: “Server not found.”

Please, before you lose your access to the onramp of the information superhighway, give us your support, right now.

Fax every Member of Congress right now.

Barack Obama believes that he has the executive authority, WITHOUT legislation enacted by Congress, to arbitrarily regulate who uses cyberspace and what access they may enjoy, based entirely on the content of the material that they wish to read or publish there. If this isn’t a violation of our basic rights as Americans, I do not know what is! And, just like in Egypt, Mr. Obama should not have the right to SHUT DOWN OUR INTERNET!

I must hear from you today!

The Obama Administration has done it to you—AGAIN! Yesterday, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) vote was 3-2 to take away your Internet freedom—without Congressional approval.

We must URGE MEMBERS OF CONGRESS to take a stand right now—to hold hearings to RESCIND these illegal and unconstitutional regulations.

Quite frankly, the FCC does NOT have the Constitutional or the Congressional authority to take away our First Amendment freedoms.

Please read this extremely urgent email which outlines what we can do to get our freedoms back!

Thank you,

A special message from:


You are a genuine Patriotic American:

YESTERDAY, some of our basic freedoms under the First Amendment to the United States Constitution vanished! The FCC voted 3-2 to impose harsh
regulations on the Internet, without first obtaining the consent of Congress, making those actions un-constitutional.

The FCC voted to EXPAND THEIR AUTHORITYwhich they cannot legally do!

In addition to the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, which ruled on April 6, 2010, that the FCC cannot expand their
authority with the consent of Congress, three federal judges have also ruled that the Internet has the same First Amendment protection as the
newspaper industry, since every individual web site is like a printed newsletter.

We must push the new Congress to RESCIND this unconstitutional step in the wrong direction. There needs to be a Congressional
FIGHT to take away the FCC’s illegally obtained authority!

The FCC votes went along party lines—3 liberal Democrats for, 2 Republicans against. The Internet regulatory scheme will be challenged and opposed
by the United States Justice Foundation on every level. The still unpublished “Net Neutrality” regulations indicate an unprecedented FEDERAL
ATTACK
on your Internet freedoms.

Representative Marsha Blackburn, of Tennessee stated: “We, as Members of Congress should control (the process of Internet regulation) if we decide
it’s necessary. There is strong bipartisan agreement on that point.” Blackburn expects a Senate companion bill, authored by Senator John McCain, to
address the issue in the upper chamber. Congresswoman Blackburn went on to say: “I look at this as the Fairness Doctrine of the Internet. The FCC
would be in a position to make determinations of online priorities and value. We will vigorously oppose (yesterday’s FCC vote) because it’s a
hysterical reaction to a hypothetical problem.”

Congresswoman Blackburn said that swiftly cutting the FCC’s recent maneuver off at the knees would send an important message to the agency that
Internet regulation is beyond its jurisdiction. Believe me; we here at USJF, are WATCHING this extremely closely.

Phil Kerpin, Vice President for Policy at Americans for Prosperity stated: “The best, cleanest response is for Congress to use a process called the
Congressional Review Act (CRA), which can overturn any federal agency rulemaking. It’s important to use this mechanism because it’s protected against
the filibuster.”


Please, CLICK HERE to send a FAX to every single Member of Congress NOW, and tell them that they need to exercise their Constitutional authority
and oversight over the FCC, by RESCINDING the FCC vote yesterday because the FCC does NOT have the Constitutional or Congressional authority to expand
governmental regulation. Three federal judges in three different cases have already ruled that the Internet deserves the same protection under the
First Amendment as printed material receives. AND, please be sure to send a sizeable DONATION to the United States Justice Foundation (USJF) as we
keep this Internet freedom issue before the eyes of every Member of Congress.

Your Internet freedoms have already disappeared, thanks to yesterday’s decision by the FCC. You must not sit back idly and do nothing. You must take
action to tell Members of Congress to reclaim control of the FCC.

This could be the very worst “Merry Christmas” present that you have ever received. We are working hard to convince members of the new 112th
Congress leadership to hold hearings in the House and Senate subcommittees that monitor the FCC and to rescind the rule just implemented by the FCC
as unconstitutional.

I know that even though the mainstream media is reporting this story only since our campaign to alert you began, not enough people know about this
because many of them are still preoccupied with Christmas—or they believe that the Bill of Rights will prevail without anyone fighting to protect
free speech. Not true! That is precisely why YOU must fax every single Member of Congress, right now.

In an unparalleled power grab, the FCC is arbitrarily adding the Internet to its “portfolio” of regulated industries. Obama’s FCC stole Internet
freedom by simply declaring that it has the “right” to regulate it. Here’s the underlying reality. Internet journalists tend to report the news
without coloring it with the brush of “political correctness.” They challenge the lies that the Obama Administration puts out and the “mainstream
media” accepts and repeats as the truth.

The Wall Street Journal reported: “The FCC’s move to treat broadband providers like phone company monopolies could spur international efforts
to regulate the Web.”

We need Congressional action to stop this ASSAULT on our freedoms—and we need it NOW.

This is extremely CRITICAL. YOUR First Amendment rights are at stake! I URGE YOU to act right now. Do you have the guts to stand up to this affront
to our individual freedoms? Will you stand with us right now, at this very moment?


Please, CLICK HERE to send a FAX to every single Member of Congress NOW, and tell them that they need to exercise their Constitutional authority
and oversight over the FCC, by RESCINDING the FCC vote yesterday because the FCC does NOT have the Constitutional or Congressional authority to

the First Amendment as printed material receives. AND, please be sure to send a sizeable DONATION to the United States Justice Foundation (USJF) as we

Mr. Obama blatantly insists that he has the right to regulate the Internet through the FCC—which regulates the other electronic mediums: radio
and television. What Mr. Obama really means is that as long as the American people have unfettered access to the Internet, he cannot continue to
spread his propaganda and bold face lies without being challenged, and he will be a one-term visitor at 1600
Pennsylvania Avenue.

Make no mistake; Barack Hussein Obama is very determined to undermine the 1st Amendment by strangling free speech under the disguise of making
sure our safety and our security are of prime importance.

That’s why we must Fax every Member of Congress, RIGHT NOW, to stop this government intrusion into our private, on-line, communications.
We have not witnessed this kind of government intrusion since FDR tried to regulate newspapers in 1933.

Will you assist us to make sure that our Internet remains OURS, and not under Barack Obama’s control?

Please, give us your support, right now, by faxing every Member of Congress.




Although the federal judiciary (with decisions by three separate federal judges in three different cases!) has extended First Amendment
protection to the Internet
, Barack Obama believes that he has the executive authority, WITHOUT legislation enacted by Congress, to
arbitrarily regulate who uses cyberspace and what access they may enjoy, based entirely on the content of the material that they wish to publish
there. If this isn’t a violation of our basic rights as Americans, I do not know what is!

I must hear from you QUICKLY! There is no time to waste.

Thank you for your CRUCIAL RESPONSE TODAY,

Gary G. Kreep, Esq.
