Obama Dictates National “Cyber Security” Emergency
So, our caring, concerned
dictator President, once again issues an Executive Order, skirting the oversight not only of Congress, but of the American people, in his desire to rule us. That desire to rule us is his only desire. Of course the American people will probably thank him for “protecting us”, but, as usual, this is not about protecting us. I call baloney. When is enough enough? Now back to your regularly scheduled program. – Shorty Dawkins, Associate Editor
It’s business as usual in Washington. President Obama has just signed another Executive Order declaring a National Emergency to deal with cyber threats:
*OBAMA ORDER CREATES NEW AUTHORITY TO RESPOND TO CYBER THREATS TO BE USED IN ‘TARGETED MANNER’
*OBAMA ORDER ALLOWS SANCTIONS FOR CYBER THREATS
This new authority, yet another layer of government oversight, we are sure is for your own protection and in Obama’s words will “augment work to fight cyber threats.” All your internet belongs to us…
The national and economic security of the United States depends on the reliable functioning of the Nation’s critical infrastructure in the face of such threats. It is the policy of the United States to enhance the security and resilience of the Nation’s critical infrastructure and to maintain a cyber environment that encourages efficiency, innovation, and economic prosperity while promoting safety, security, business confidentiality, privacy, and civil liberties.
We can achieve these goals through a partnership with the owners and operators of critical infrastructure to improve cybersecurity information sharing and collaboratively develop and implement risk-based standards.
