|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.
A special message from:
