Thursday Oregon Senator Ron Wyden placed a hold on the controversial PROTECT IP Act, a bill many fear would open the door to Internet censorship.
The Preventing Real Online Threats to Economic Creativity and Theft of Intellectual Property Act, (PROTECT IP Act) is meant to protect intellectual property and combat copy right infringement. However, in so doing, the bill would give the U.S. federal government unprecedented power to force ISPs and search engines to block websites they believe to be infringing on copyright and intellectual property laws without due process.
Many, including Senator Wyden, find the bill draconian, and an intolerable threat to free expression on the Internet. ***READ MORE***
If this passes MOST Forums, Blogs and Political websites will be shut down.
They will claim “UNAUTHORIZED USE” similar to the Youtube claims that get peoples videos yanked or channels shut down… anyone can report you and you have to prove your innocence to get your site back!
Since they already hold this authority to shut down illegal sites, why would they need this? They are trying to slow down the speed of information being transferred!
We are winning and THEY are PISSED!
DO NOT LET THIS PASS!!!
So basically if you do not agree with your God given rights being stripped away… you are a Terrorist.
These politicians ALL swore to uphold and defend THE CONSTITUTION of THE UNITED STATES when put into office YET the UN-Patriotic Act violates the constitution of this nation in every way possible… why has no “alliance” stood up to this?
Harry Reid better start pushing his unconstitutional agenda faster because the REVOLUTION is brewing at an unbelievable pace and he KNOWS he is on top of the list to charged with TREASON.
Top lawmakers in the House and Senate reached a deal to extend the Patriot Act for four years, a week before key provisions were set to expire.
The pieces of the law that allow the federal government to compel businesses to release records, issue roving wiretaps, and monitor so-called “lone wolf” terror suspects were set to run out on May 27. The outline of the deal between Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) still needs to pass both chambers in the next seven days to avoid a lapse in the law. ***READ MORE***
WAKE YOUR DUMB ASS NEIGHBORS UP!!!
WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama has bypassed the Senate and directly appointed four new U.S. ambassadors whose nominations had been stalled or blocked by lawmakers for months.
The White House announced Wednesday that Obama would use his power to make recess appointments to fill envoy posts to Azerbaijan, Syria and NATO allies Turkey and the Czech Republic. Recess appointments are made when the Senate is not in session and last only until the end of the next session of Congress. They are frequently used when Senate confirmation is not possible.
Specific senators had blocked or refused to consider the confirmations of the nominees for various reasons, including questions about their qualifications. But in the most high-profile case, that of the new envoy to Syria, Robert Ford, a number of senators objected because they believed sending an ambassador to the country would reward it for bad behavior. ***READ MORE***
