Web Alert: President Obama wants to control the internet and You are the target.
Republicans in the Senate blocked cybersecurity legislation. At least on this issue, there is a dime’s worth of difference between most Republicans and Democrats. So what is the White House considering? You guessed it — another executive order. Obama wants the authority and power to police the internet to protect us from “cyber threats.”
Who gets to define what constitutes a “cyber threat”? We think it means threats from foreign groups who want to bring down the United States. But there’s more to it.
The . . . Cybersecurity Act . . . would have encouraged private companies and the government to share information about cyber threats and would have required critical infrastructure operators to meet minimum cybersecurity standards.
