Subject: URGENT: LEGISLATIVE ACTION! VERY VERY DANGEROUS Amendment attached to NDAA 2014 BILL
Importance: High

NOTE BY VICTORIA:  CALL YOUR SENATOR AND TELL THEM TO VOTE NO TO THE CYBER SECURITY AMENDMENT ATTACHED TO THE 2014 NDAA

BILL. COPY AND PASTE THIS INFORMATION (two paragraphs) below into BOTH OF YOUR SENATORS EMAILS!  They must know we KNOW WHAT THEY ARE UP TO AND ARE EXPOSING THEM!!!

SENATOR MAIN NUMBER IS 202 224 3121  and their email can be found herehttp://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm

Jay Rockefeller (D WVA) has attached a cyber-security amendment (I attached it below)  to the NDAA 2014 bill in Congress to mandate that precautions be taken to protect America’s cyber infrastructure and private entities. Those of us who represent private entities, will soon find our free access to the internet eliminated. The fact that this internet control bill is attached to the NDAA is no accident because this means that dissidents, posting anti-government rhetoric on the internet, can be snatched off the street and held indefinitely for their “terrorist” views.

There is a second and equally disturbing development in that the government has declared that the people of this country do not have the right to challenge the government on its unconstitutional actions. This is a position which fully exposes the fact that America is no longer a democratic republic, but rather a dictatorship which serves the elite. At issue is the ACLU’s right to sue the NSA for the unconstitutional  and unwarranted intrusions into the private lives of all Americans by spying on their every communication and their web-surfing habits. This position, taken by the government, validates that we have no rights and are living under a dictatorship.

Rockefeller attaches cybersecurity bill to NDAA 2014

The chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee submitted on Thursday an already-approved cybersecurity bill to be considered as an amendment to next year’s National Defense Authorization Act.

If the amendment manages to stay intact as Congress prepares to approve the 2014 NDAA, Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-West Virginia)’s Cybersecurity Act of 2013 may finally be codified into law.

Rockefeller’s proposal, S.1353, was unanimously approved by the Commerce Committee in July but has stayed relatively dormant ever since. On Thursday he submitted that bill as an amendment to be considered as part of an annual Pentagon spending plan that could fast track his attempts to land his proposal on President Barack Obama’s desk after attempts in Congress to adopt cybersecurity legislation have largely proven to be futile.

In a statement made by Rockefeller that circulated earlier this week, the 75-year-old senator suggested that the time is now upon Congress to finally enact a bill that would mandate precautions be taken to protect America’s cyber infrastructure and the private entities attached to it amid ongoing reports of high-powered attacks aimed at the likes of government computers and the networks of critical services.

“The Commerce Committee took action months ago and unanimously passed this bipartisan bill that will improve the nation’s cybersecurity. But it’s been sitting on the sidelines for too long and there’s too much at stake to not look for every opportunity to pass it in the Senate,” Rockefeller said in a statement first published on Wednesday by John Eggerton at Multichannel News. “So I’m introducing that legislation as an amendment to the Defense Authorization bill and imploring my colleagues to join me in supporting this effort.”

According to Rockefeller, his bill “creates an environment that will cultivate the public-private partnerships essential to strengthening our nation’s cybersecurity.” When it was first introduced in the Senate earlier this year, the Commerce Committee said passage of the bill would “Formalize cybersecurity as one of [National Institute of Standards and Technology]’s priority areas of focus” and “create a NIST-facilitated, industry-driven process for developing a set of voluntary cybersecurity standards for critical infrastructure.” At the time it received endorsements from the likes of AT&T, Verizon, Motorola Solutions, the Electric and Nuclear Power Coalition, IBM and the US Chamber of Congress.

I’ve always thought this was a great way to emphasize the critical need for a public-private approach when it comes to solving our most pressing cybersecurity issues,” Rockefeller said then.

Since Congress will need to approve a version of the NDAA in order to authorize the Pentagon’s funding for the next fiscal year, the addition of Rockefeller’s bill as an amendment ensures that it will at least be considered by his colleagues for passage in the coming weeks, setting the stage for lawmakers to finally let a cybersecurity bill of this capacity become codified.

In 2012, attempts in Congress to pass the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, or CISPA, ultimately failed due largely in part to a major public campaign that condemned the would-be law due to allegations that it would erode privacy on the web by encouraging the growth of a public-private partnership between internet companies and the federal government.

Proponents of CISPA, including then-Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, said at the time that America was at a “pre-9/11 moment” and warned that a “Cyber-Pearl Harbor that would cause physical destruction and the loss of life” could soon occur on American soil if the country’s critical infrastructure and top-tier businesses weren’t obligated to come together and share information about potential hacks waged at US networks.

The architects of CISPA have since reintroduced their bill, and Pres. Obama signed an executive order in February that mandated administration officials to come up with standards to reduce cybersecurity risks and encourage companies to adopt the new framework.

“We know hackers steal people’s identities and infiltrate private e-mail,”Obama said after signing the order in February.“We know foreign countries and companies swipe our corporate secrets. Now our enemies are also seeking the ability to sabotage our power grid, our financial institutions, and our air traffic control systems.”

Govt Lawyers: Americans Have No Right to Challenge Surveillance

Ordinary Americans Have No Say, Officials Insist

by Jason Ditz, November 22, 2013

Government lawyers are demanding that the US District Court immediately throw out an ACLU lawsuit against NSA surveillance, insisting that there is no avenue by which “ordinary Americans” could even theoretically challenge its legality.

The ACLU is arguing that the surveillance, involving collecting every phone record of every American, exceeds the authority the NSA has under either the Patriot Act or the Constitution.

The government is arguing that only phone companies could challenge the collection orders, however, and then only in super-secret FISA courts, which have already rubber-stamped the surveillance time and again.

The lawyers are also arguing that the judge himself isn’t qualified to hear questions of “national security” and that he should simply trust the administration’s officials to figure things out on their own, outside of courts.

      • Freeamerican

        ‘nam marine’ jew troll holohoaxer who isprobably israeli, doesn’t want to be cut off the holohoax payouts and billions to israel, the nazi meme is bunk. Holohoax. JWO. thezog.wordpress.com jew trolls (probably israel. Don’t be fooled by usernames, if the comment doesn’t fit the username, including doing ‘gestapo-nazi’ hitler meme, remember the the jew tribe is behind all the schemes and has been for thousands of years. In the case of America, subverting since the beginning when the jew brought the slaves and have been blaming ‘the bad white man’ for it to make whites into slaves to immigrant leeches ever since. Page on trolls, the site is a jew psy ops doing christian bunk but page is good, trolls keep the holohoax going http://zioncrimefactory.com/tag/trolls/ 99% of supposed truther sites even anti jew sites are fake. Holohoax.

        • Mister Fred

          Freeamerican… you said “Don’t be fooled by usernames, if the comment doesn’t fit the username.”

          “Freeamerican” doesn’t fit your comments, which are antisemitic in nature. Being that America is a place for religious freedom, so your comments on this site are always un-American.

          Why don’t you go back to plucking your banjo you inbred whitetrash hillbilly?
          Oh, and speaking of Jewish… I could probably give you a circumcision by kicking your sister in the chin :razz:

        • Prudence Wright

          you know, to just blame one group for EVERYTHING wrong, you sound ignorant and like you have something out for them only. Why don’t you try to educate yourself and come up with logical, factual points to draw your conclusions? Emotions just make people look at you like your crazy and don’t even give you a second thought….

          Also, why so hard on the Jews? I mean, they are nowhere near as bad as the idiot politicians that stand on “God” in our government. THEY are the one’s who are deceitful and greedy causing us pain. And at the end of the day it has NOTHING to do with anyone’s beliefs, it has all to do with what they will say to get the money……..

          Mr Fred who was the first Anti semite ….. Have you read the bible ?

    • Lafanda

      With the signing of the National Defense Authorization Act into law, more Americans than ever before are wondering how the country could have descended so quickly into a police state. Far from a unique or isolated act, the NDAA is just the another awful entry in a long list of steps toward the codification of outright martial law. Obama’s signing statement on the NDAA cleary pointed out that the detention language is open for interpretation.
      The NDAA only goes to further stifle America’s Constitutional Rights without the approval of the Americans, just as the Patriot Act was adopted WITHOUT public approval or vote just weeks after the events of 9/11, don’t cry over spilled milk , we the people should have stopped it from becoming a law .

        Microsoft, Dell, HP, Cisco, Oracle all the major tech firms will lose $billions as people refuse to use the Internet any longer and stop buying their products. This is where this fight will be won, in the pockets of unemployed engineers, computer scientists, and the universities that train them. Talk about back doors, trojans, malware, and viruses that could be unleashed from companies such as the above by disgruntled ex employees, the government doesn’t have the tools or the manpower to even begin to mitigate what can be wrought on infrastructure, automobiles, trains, airlines, power grids and so on from the engineers and programmers that wrote the code that controls them. Perhaps government should think long and hard about this strategy before attempting it because there could be major ramifications if this is passed. :lol: :lol: :lol:

        • Freeamerican

          All those companies are owned/run by jews. same as banks, media, global companies. thezog.wordpress.com They likely get more money from spying payoffs than from selling their products. Gates owns part of monsanto (also jew) so is part of the chemtrails plot. Dummies who thought it was fine to let only a few companies control the food need to take the fork out of your face and start growing food too. You’ll have a hard time finding facts because they also contol the web. This site has psy ops because 99% of truther sites are fakes that bait with jew truth then distract with other bunk, but this page is good http://www.fourwinds10.net/siterun_data/media/internet/news.php?q=1262024557
          They’re all connected, jew world order. It’s on you to stop it. You’re right sheople have choices, but so far they’re too stupid to stop immigration or even quit buying from the global companies. If they don’t do what it takes they get what they deserve. Quit buying things, protest immigration, quit voting.

      • Winston Churchill

        It wasn’t fast. It’s bee working up to this point for a very long time. We were so busy buying stuff and being greedy, we lost sight of what was most important. Once the nuclear family was destroyed, the rest was easy.

    • lostpuppy

      Anyone signing onto to anything like this are traitors to our country, we should get ahold of Russia and see if we can banish these….” People”….. to the moon, or just set them adrift in space…maybe headed sunward.

      How many people work for government? 80,000 or something…out of that figure….how many took an oath to our country??

      Why are they still working? Why are they still free? Why are we just sitting by while they do what they want with no regard for how the people of this country really feel?

      • Freeamerican

        Unfortunately russia is part of the jew world order. They all are, the putin hero act is a psy ops, the iceland threw out the bankers is a psy ops (leader married to jew). China communists got it from jews. It is up to us. The federal government and media need to be in prison along with media and big company owners, immigration needs to be stopped and the welfare scheme stopped. Your last question is obvious. Americans can stop them, only if sheople get off their ignorance and quit expecting fake heroes to do it for them. Protest immigration to send a message that immigrants are not welcome, quit buying things and quit voting.

      something is deeply and profoundly wrong with the voters of the state of W Virginia that they persist in putting this dud into office. they are largely to blame for this

      • justme

        NO! You are so wrong to blame the voters here. I know of no other, more patriotic group of people than the people here. He is a product of his time. I can guarantee come election time, he will be gone. WV”s have been known for their great belief in the Constitution and have proven it repeatedly in history as being one of top states volunteering to fight for those rights.

        • Prudence Wright

          actually, West Virginia has never stood for their belief in the Constitution or rights of any other state. ONLY their own. The whole reason they are a state outside of Virginia is because when Virginia seceded from the Union during the Civil War, West Virginia didn’t want to leave the Union….they stood for their own beliefs NOT those of our Constitution or rights of anyone else……

          But no, West Virginia is not largely to blame for this. They are part of the blame but have the same as every other state, and every other citizen of this country for NOT holding our legislators accountable for their actions. That is not only our right, but our DUTY as a citizen of the United States of America. Without We the People being 100% involved and aware of what our Representatives are doing, we are not doing our duty….and THAT is why our democratic republic will fall. Each and every citizen of this country needs to acknowledge what we have done wrong and everyone needs to be involved and DEMAND better. If the mass majority does not do this, we will be slaves to the government……

    • p-od

      Do we really believe that an email or phone call would actually do us any good.That won’t work anymore, and if you think your vote counts any longer it’s time to wake up!!!!!

    • Freeamerican

      Rockerfeller jew doing a fake hero act. They psy ops are putting jews out front to act like heroes so you’re looking at jews like heroes while the big jew plot goes forward. He’s doing his turn pretending to be a patriot when he’s a fake like all of them. They are ALL SCUM. The scum jew communist republicans since jew lincoln used immigrants to kill the white south http://www.ihr.org/jhr/v07/v07p319_Dickson.html they ALL gave the jew the federal reserve in 1913 and helped the holohoax, the republicans did amnesty and keep swarming in legals to get on welfare while protecting the forty million illegal leeches so they ALL get ‘free medical’ on the bill republicans REFUSE to de-fund even though they CAN. The jew and government scums 911 lies soak you for trillions. They already did the ndaa’s. This bunk is another psy ops to scaremonger or make you think heroes will save you. These laws do not matter by now. Regardless of the fake patriots like jew rockerfeller or the pauls or other fakes there is NO one in government for you and there will NOT be anyone. Some of you morons point at one of the scums ‘oh but that’s a good one’ when NONE of them are. They ALL serve the jew. There is no point in this psy ops except to tell you to call and snivel at murderous scums who have destroyed America and you, because you let them. Stopping this would change NOTHING. Rockerfeller’s act is bunk. Holohoax. jew world order. JWO. Stop swallowing fake jew heroes and fear porn and quit believing you can ‘call them’ or ‘vote’ to change anything. It’s on you. Protest immigration to send a message that immigrants are not welcome, or don’t and be a slave. Quit buying from overeas and quit voting.

      • Freeamerican

        Well pardon that, skipped a portion, so in this case the jew isn’t pretending to be the hero when they’re the scum, he’s just openly being a scum. There, fixed. These days the scums are putting more jews out front as heroes to cover their act, in this case he’s openly doing the JWO. Prison time for the government. Protest immigration and welfare communism, quit voting.

    • propel7

      The late Film maker Aaron Russo reveals the truth about the Rockefellers and their involvement in 911. Seems they knew it was going to happen. Seems they and their Globalist Banker friends were behind it. Seems the Rockefellers are the real enemy and terrorists. They are trying to make every American a terrorist.

      I we could boycott but nobody in America seems to give a damn!To boycott this action by not using our cell phones or computers. But people would be saying things like ” I can’t do that how will I talk to anyone, how will I get anything done” well there was a world before we had all this tech and you know what it was a great world and everything worked pretty damn well.. Would you rather stop using this stuff for a while and take a stand or wait until the government takes it away from you? Or worse use it against you.
