Obama Won’t Wait For CISPA, Signs Own Orwellian Cybersecurity Executive Order

This article was written by Cassius Methyl and originally published at The Anti Media

The president signed an executive order Saturday after a speech at a ‘Cyber Security Summit’ at Stanford University, while many were distracted with Valentine’s Day. The ever-hated CISPA legislation has stalled in Congress thanks to public outcry, but Obama has decided to act on his own.

“Executive Order — Promoting Private Sector Cybersecurity Information Sharing” was apparently intended to coerce organizations and corporations to share more info with the government, while promoting the creation of organizations to process data collected for an unspecified end.

The executive order specifically talks about the formation of ‘Information Sharing and Analysis Organizations’ (ISAOs), Orwellian corporate and/or government organizations that process massive amounts of data collected from people through every imaginable way. This obviously can’t be good.

The tech sector is already voicing its skepticism of the bill, citing government overreach and lack of reforms to the NSA’s spying program:

Typical of these concerns were the remarks of Apple CEO Tim Cook who gave a vigorous speech at the same Stanford cyber meeting that seemed to challenge the president’s appeal for greater cooperation. Cook issued a dire warning that the threat to privacy posed by technology “risks our way of life.”

Other major tech CEOs snubbed the White House cyber summit at Stanford, reflecting private sector worries. The no-shows included Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Google executives Larry Page and Eric Schmidt.

The executive order says,

The Secretary of Homeland Security (Secretary) shall strongly encourage the development and formation of Information Sharing and Analysis Organizations (ISAOs).

[…]

(b) ISAOs may be organized on the basis of sector, sub-sector, region, or any other affinity, including in response to particular emerging threats or vulnerabilities. ISAO membership may be drawn from the public or private sectors, or consist of a combination of public and private sector organizations. ISAOs may be formed as for-profit or nonprofit entities.

The president predictably utilized his refined lying skills and charisma to fear-monger a bit; saying,

As a country, one of our greatest resources are the young people, the digitally fearless. But it also means that the problem of how we secure this digital world will only increase.

So this order looks like it will serve to back up current NSA operations, and shift some power to the Department of Homeland Security. It also looks like they may fund the creation of ‘ISAO’s. I highly recommend you read it for yourself, it is not very long.

They essentially are expanding upon the foundation they have been constructing for multiple government and non-government, non-profit and of course for profit ‘ISAO’s. The President wants to build a kind of web of infrastructure reminiscent of the military-industrial-complex, except for mass surveillance.

The question is: what exactly will this function to do? What will these ‘Information Sharing and Analysis Organizations’ actually accomplish, and who will be incarcerated or targeted as a result of their work?

Perhaps an even better question, what are we citizens actually going to do about this?

    1. Charlie Brown,
      You ask, “What will the citizens do about it? Probably nothing, like every thing else.” I will ask you, “What have YOU done about it?” It is not a matter of what others do, but about what each individual does. That is what CPT is about. Each individual needs to be prepared, not just to protect their own Rights, their own homes, their own supplies, but to protect and defend EVERYONE’S Rights, homes, supplies and loved ones. Be a good neighbor, not a complainer. Be ready to help the other guy. That other guy you help will be your friend. Together you can help others. What have you done? What are you doing? What will you do?

      Charlie, read Brandon Smith’s article A Moral Code For The Post-Collapse World, it is very insightful. It is not about screaming at the other guy because you think he is wrong. It is about doing the right thing, regardless of whether you are alone in doing it. It is about morality, and conscience. Do what you can do. All you can do. Period. It is all you CAN do.

      1. here is something you can do, spread the word about it, to as many as you can, start a petition on their own website, contact your senators and congressmen, generate petitions in your own communities, inform them of the gross negligence to upholding the 4th amendment in this.

        use any local web forums, and state based web forums. INFORM THE PEOPLE.

      2. Shorty,

        This is not a shot at Charlie Brown. You were spot on in your reply. The CPT may be the last hope for a positive outcome in the future.

        The article by Brandon Smith was well thought out and significant in scope.

        I truly believe the federal government is a run away train and I have very little hope that it can be recovered. However, I will do all I can to help prevent a total collapse as long as it falls within the guidelines of our beloved Constitution.

        Personally, I believe we are going to experience G0d'[s wrath for the sin of abortion and homosexuality.

    *It is about doing the right thing, regardless of whether you are alone in doing it. It is *about morality, and conscience. Do what you can do. All you can do. Period. It is all *you CAN do.

    WOW! At last something I agree with and hope I do not mis-understand or have taken out of context.

    When you start running around the neighborhood trying to build a group to understand and prepare to resist when the time arrives, one exposes him/her self to the very real possibility of being turned over to (you know) and infiltration of said group will therein be compromised.

    Yes, indeed wee need to have support from others as we can not do it as individuals. yet the vetting of our neighbors is very problematic to say the least, would you not agree?

    Any attempt to form a CPT is just asking for trouble, period… One must limit to those that can be vetted, like close family (hard to explain how one can even do this), but, which came first , the Chicken or the Egg? What this means is that one Egg can be the start of something great, right?

    1. Ron,
      You said, “Any attempt to form a CPT is just asking for trouble, period… One must limit to those that can be vetted, like close family (hard to explain how one can even do this), but, which came first , the Chicken or the Egg? What this means is that one Egg can be the start of something great, right?”

      Quite the contrary. I encourage everyone to start, or join, a CPT type group in their community. It is something you CAN do. Sure, vetting is a problem, but the fear of being “turned in” or “put on a list” is just that, fear. It has nothing to do with reality. A soldier always has to put aside fear. A moral person cannot let his/her fear of being different, or being alone in their action. Rather, it is a matter of doing that which must be done.

      It is this fear that prevents people from doing anything. It is this fear that the controllers use to keep people separated from each other. Make no mistake, fear is powerful, but must be overcome. Use common sense, by all means, when working with CPT groups, but persevere, nevertheless.

      CPT is about protecting and helping your community. Protecting and helping others is what community is all about. A soldier defends his country, a larger community. He thinks of his family and neighbors, as he prepares to fight. A fireman is helping others. A medic is helping others. The man who brings water to a stricken community, is helping others. This is CPT in action. CPT is about learning the skill sets for survival, and teaching others the skill sets you have developed.

      I may be on any number of lists. So what. I know what I want for my community and will continue to work for it. Why? Because it is right. Not because it is “safe”. The paralysis of fear is not in my equation. I may have fear, but I refuse to be paralyzed by it. I will continue, because the alternative is far worse.

      Shorty Dawkins

  2. Shorty, I have signed three petitions, and written the Supreme Court. I told my Republican Congress women that I was finished with her after I pleaded with her to not vote for Bohener. What else can I do? I have written to Brandon and had hoped to meet with him in Eureka MT. WA. state is going so liberal. I could never get a real answer from him.

    1. I don’t recall ever receiving an email from you Charlie, but I do get around 100 emails a day and it is difficult to keep track of everyone. Beyond that, why do you need to talk to me before you take action in your own neighborhood and community? Your future plans should not revolve around any one person. I would ask yourself if signing a few petitions and writing to your Congress-critter is really the best you can do for yourself and your family? I don’t need an answer from you, but you should at least be honest with yourself. Is there really nothing left to try? I can think of a dozen different actionable examples on how to improve your preparedness situation that have been published here on this website in the past few weeks alone.

  3. Shorty I am as guilty as any one, but the Patriots playing the blame game with each other is going to be our down fall.

    1. What is the blame game exactly? Isn’t it just another excuse or cover-up to not face the true nature of the required work that lies before all of us that call ourselves patriots.

      In short, we have an undocumented, illegal alien usurper, who is now the president of the United States. We have a congress that has proven itself to not be representing the will of the people in any real and meaningful way. The unconstitutional Federal Reserve is presently allowed to continue crushing American’s through economic slavery and debt.

      Why is all this corruption allowed to continue? It’s allowed to continue because patriots refuse to consider or face the fact that the usurpers and traitors in high places in government, business, banking, military, etc, must be removed [Some words deleted by Elias Alias, editor. Doorman, we have to be careful at this website. I cannot let your words be used against Oath Keepers by those who would love to shut us down. Hope you can understand.]. There’s no other way. Everything else ends up in circular talk and inefficient actions which result in frustration and weariness.

      It’s the fear within most patriots to [More words deleted by Elias Alias, editor] fight against the communist backed federal government that has to be addressed and dealt with. We should start calling things as they are.

  4. To Shorty Dawkins in his reply to Ron , Well Stated ! To add to your reply Shorty . US President FDR once said ” We have nothing to fear but fear it’s self “

  5. @ Charlie BROWN, “What will the citizens do about it?”

    The citizens do what they can. Some do not want to believe, others hated having to believe, but they are mostly preparing for the worst. Some are afraid to talk, speak out, in which case we already lost.

    Remember, lists can go both ways. They list us, we list the traitors, and put their information where it can be shared as they are sharing ours with others who work against us and/or want to use us.

    U.S. senators voted on the TREASONOUS United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.
    In a 53-46 vote, the Senate narrowly passed a measure that will stop the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. Four votes away from the U.S. Senate giving our Constitutional rights over to the United Nations, not that they were ever given that authority, but because they tried to it IS treason against the USA and the American people.

    These Senators voted to allow armed U.N. Police Forces to come into our country and take OUR weapons of defense which IS treason against the USA and the American people.

    Writing is good IF you let them know the crimes they have committed, that you and others are working to have them arrested and PROSECUTED for those crimes, and that you personally will work to see that they go to a real prison like the general populace go to.

    List the crimes starting with felony for breaking the Oath (at least one), Perjury, plus if anyone or property was injured or could have been injured, force used then it becomes *terrorism against the USA and the American people.

    28 C.F.R. Section 0.85 Terrorism is defined as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives”.

    Also that **treason carries the death penalty and that if that SOB is found guilty of treason you will work to get the MAXIMUM punishment for that SOB. Then send them the US Constitution which is the CONTRACT they are under – they may not know the US Constitution but they do understand contract law.

    Now you know why I am called “controversial”. Yes, I have sent it to all reps, though it has been over a year. When I get my move complete I will research them all again and do it again. I am not the only one, so if you bother you will find that you are NOT alone in this endeavor. That life might get interesting after, and not necessarily in a good way, but to shut up, at least as far as I am concerned is to rollover on my belly and wet like a frightened puppy.

    It might be fearful at times, but so be it. This is MY country, the US Constitution IS my government and the traitors and domestic enemies of the USA are my enemies.

    Think it is not treason? Read these:

    AMENDING EXECUTIVE ORDER 12425 DESIGNATING INTERPOL AS A PUBLIC INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATION ENTITLED TO ENJOY CERTAIN PRIVILEGES, EXEMPTIONS, AND IMMUNITIES
    By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including section 1 of the International Organizations Immunities Act (22 U.S.C. 288), and in order to extend the appropriate privileges, exemptions, and immunities to the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL), it is hereby ordered that Executive Order 12425 of June 16, 1983, as amended, is further amended by deleting from the first sentence the words “except those provided by Section 2(c), Section 3, Section 4, Section 5, and Section 6 of that Act” and the semicolon that immediately precedes them.

    Barack Obama (thought he has the authority, and tried to) quietly cede US sovereignty to the International Police Force and rendered due process under the Constitution irrelevant.

    It is past time for REAL Grand Jury investigations into these affairs, it is a constitutional way for the people to STOP those corrupt individuals in ANY branch or part of our government.

    (ReaL) Grand jury information, please read:

    Fifth Amendment: “No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”

    Amendment Six: In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defense.

    Amendment Seven: In Suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise re-examined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.

    Amendment Eight: Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

    “The grand jury is mentioned in the Bill of Rights, but not in the body of the Constitution. It has not been textually assigned, therefore, to any of the branches described in the first three Articles. It is a constitutional fixture in its own right. In fact the whole theory of its function is that it belongs to no branch of the institutional government, serving as a kind of buffer or referee between the Government and the people”.

    “Thus, citizens have the unbridled right to empanel their own grand juries and present “True Bills” of indictment to a court, which is then required to commence a criminal proceeding. Our Founding Fathers presciently thereby created a “buffer” the people may rely upon for justice, when public officials, including judges, criminally violate the law.” (Misbehavior)

    “The grand jury is an institution separate from the courts, over whose functioning the courts do not preside, we think it clear that, as a general matter at least, no such “supervisory” judicial authority exists. The “common law” of the Fifth Amendment demands a traditional functioning grand jury.”

    “Although the grand jury normally operates, of course, in the courthouse and under judicial auspices, its institutional relationship with the judicial branch has traditionally been, so to speak, at arm’s length. Judges’ direct involvement in the functioning of the grand jury has generally been confined to the constitutive one of calling the grand jurors together and administering their oaths of office. The grand jury’s functional independence from the judicial branch is evident both in the scope of its power to investigate criminal wrongdoing, and in the manner in which that power is exercised.”

    “The grand jury ‘can investigate merely on suspicion that the law is being violated, or even because it wants assurance that it is not.’ It need not identify the offender it suspects, or even “the precise nature of the offense” it is investigating. The grand jury requires no authorization from its constituting court to initiate an investigation, nor does the prosecutor require leave of court to seek a grand jury indictment. And in its day-to-day functioning, the grand jury generally operates without the interference of a presiding judge. It swears in its own witnesses and deliberates in total secrecy.”

    “Recognizing this tradition of independence, we have said the 5th Amendment’s constitutional guarantee presupposes an investigative body ‘acting independently of either prosecuting attorney or judge”

    “Given the grand jury’s operational separateness from its constituting court, it should come as no surprise that we have been reluctant to invoke the judicial supervisory power as a basis for prescribing modes of grand jury procedure. Over the years, we have received many requests to exercise supervision over the grand jury’s evidence-taking process, but we have refused them all. “it would run counter to the whole history of the grand jury institution” to permit an indictment to be challenged “on the ground that there was incompetent or inadequate evidence before the grand jury.” (In reality the real reason is because they have no LAWFUL authority over a grand jury.)
    Justice Antonin Scalia writing for the majority said In the Supreme Court case of United States v. Williams, 112 S.Ct. 1735, 504 U.S. 36, 118 L.Ed.2d 352 (1992)

    1. I wonder if cleaver would have voted for it.. he is a dem too, and share many of the views McCaskill does. the fact miss Claire did vote for it makes me ashamed of this state’s voting, and sick to my stomach.

  6. Also..
    “By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America”

    Show me in the US Constitution where it gives ANY US President that “authority” or even that type of authority. They do not even have the authority to write executive orders that affect any but those who are in Washington DC or work under the executive branch …PERIOD. Let alone the authority to give our nation, any part of it, away to foreign entities or foreign nations, or to foreign groups, etc.

    Sorry, it just gets me so upset that so much treason is just passed by like one was ignoring a person who passed gas so as to not embarrass them.

    Treason is MUCH, MUCH worse. It is worse then serial killers because it destroys a nation.

    That little word “All” in Article 1 says that the other two branches are forbidden to create any legislature – laws, regulations, etc – that has anything to do with the people of the United States of America.

    As Dr. Edwin Vieira says; “Read the thing!”

    1. how correct you are cal, if I could get voted president, my first executive order would be to void all previous executive orders, I would then look to people of intelligence and understand of our countries founding, like you, to assist, with debate of course, on the course and restrictive executive orders against those in government to limit, if not remove, the abuse of perceived power.

      I would last maybe a month.. but that would be all it would take hopefully.

      1. @ Moman, ” if I could get voted president, my first executive order would be to void all previous executive orders,”

        Excellent, but guess what? You would NOT have to do that. All you would have to do is assemble a(lots of) team(s) to start reviewing to see who and what is constitutional. Since executive orders are not – they are null and void. Put them in Archives as a REMINDER to those who follow us what can be done when the people ignore those put into government.

        If it is not constitutional, can it be made constitutional? If not, it is gone. Will tick off the CIA, FBI, Secret Service, BLM, Federal Reserve (God, please give me the chance to cheer this one), IRS, NSA, etc, etc, etc.

        Bring home the military. Were you aware that the “war” on terror (which is not possible) has cost Americans a minimum of $6 trillion. That’s 6,000 billion dollars. This sum, together with the current PayRoll tax revenues is enough to keep Social Security and Medicare in the black for years to come. Without the vast sum wasted on the war on terror, Republicans would not have an excuse to be trying to cut Social Security and Medicare for budget reasons and to privatize the old age pensions and health care of people, thus turning Medicare and Social Security pensions into fee income for Wall Street. (Paul Craig Roberts
        http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2015/02/07/truth-dont-need-stinkin-truth-paul-craig-roberts/ )

        Add dumping the War on drugs and You would become the most popular US President because you could actually be able to give every American citizen who was starting to manufacture whatevers ~ $35,000 grant (if the Legislative branch will make it so – and they would since they would be being investigated and SWEATING) which would jump start our nation.

        Free Trade would be gone as it is NOT constitutional, so would a LOT of treaties. kick the UN out of the USA, not letting them take anything with them beyond their clothes since they will be lucky they are not getting prosecuted and hung for treason.

        Start a REAL US Currency.

        OH, and you would have my undying loyalty if you would chase those “elite” to the ends of the earth and beyond!

        “I would last maybe a month”

        Nah, Oathkeepers and CSPOA, plus constitutional military could keep you alive. Remember none of those who were US Presidents could have been murdered/shot, and False flags committed so easily if the federal “law enforcement” agencies were not part of the conspiracies (along with some state).

        Look at it this way, a whole lot of DESERVING people would get jobs.

        /salute and
        /smiling thinking about it.

        Make it so.

    Mr. Dawkins, I will most happily join when you or any one can insure that I will not be supplying (Non_Act_of_God) Conspirators with valuable personal or group survival informational directions that is required to circumvent a radical or out of control government from infiltration and circumvention of plans. Any group or collection of individuals that plan for, prepare for, acts of “GOD” as referred to in many insurance policies for example are preemptive in Natural Disasters, although are totally ignorant to interventions by what is really taking place.

  8. @ Ron, “I will most happily join when you or any one can insure that I will not be supplying (Non_Act_of_God) Conspirators with valuable personal or group survival informational directions that is required to circumvent a radical or out of control government from infiltration and circumvention of plans.”

    Sorry, but have to ask;

    Got a cell phone? big screen TV? Car with a computer in it? Street lights and cell phone towers anywhere near you? Refrigerator with those computerized extras? SmartMeter? Computer? Monitor? Etc? Etc?

    They all record EVERYTHING you say or do.

    What does the CPT do? It teaches First Aid, how to assist your neighbors, etc surviving catastrophes.

    You act like they do something lawful, but illegal under “color of law” so enforced by traitors.

    They don’t. They do what they are allowed to do in each state, on a state by state basis. CPT is to assist you , and your family, and others in surviving disasters – natural or otherwise.

    Have you read some of Brandon’s articles on what they do, or the other articles? Understand what it is, and do not be afraid to learn. Not all of us can do everything, but understand what it is before condemning it.

    If it is not what you want to do, then there are things like tenthamendmentcenter.com which teaches how to nullify, and does nullify things within the different states. There are lots of different things one can do.

    god Bless!
    Molon Labe!

    If there were never intended to be action to defend the Constitution from those who are domestically attempting to destroy its power and authority, why would each Oath require it of those who take the Oaths?
