Obama preparing for citizen uprising? Executive Order Allows President to Shutdown All Communications

Could this be about not being able to warn others that something is going on in your neighborhood or that it’s headed their way?

Over the past week, the Internet and talk radio have been buzzing about an Executive Order quietly signed by President Obama that allegedly authorizes the Department of Homeland Security to get ready to shut down all domestic communication in case of a declared national emergency. Let me repeat: All domestic communication, which includes “New Generation Systems” – a.k.a. the Internet – within the United States.

Just exactly what qualifies as a “national emergency” is not clearly defined. But something tells me we’ll soon find out.

White House Executive Order 13618, signed July 6, 2012, and titled “Assignment of National Security and Emergency Preparedness Communications Functions,” could be used to prevent communication between U.S. citizens, allege some concerned, thus allowing the president to eliminate any and all opposition to his plans. You decide. The complete EO can be read here.

An article that recently appeared in Zero Hedge (“Guest Post: What Is President Obama So Afraid Of?”) connects the dots:

“Taken in conjunction with the NSA’s new Utah spy center (which will collect and archive the complete contents of every email, tweet, Facebook post, Google search, phone call and text message) and the National Defense Authorization Act, it’s clear that the Obama administration is expecting trouble from within.

“And with good reason,” the article continues. “By every possible calculation (except flat-out fraud), the U.S. government is completely insolvent, and its balance sheet is growing worse by the day. The dollar is beginning to be seriously challenged as the global reserve standard, and every effort politicians make to ‘fix’ the economy only makes things worse.

“As a matter of convenience, people are willing to deal with a lot of pain. They’ll suffer through wars, recessions, and all sorts of national unpleasantness. But the moment that rapidly decaying economics and shortages prevent people from being able to put food on the table for their families, they rise up,” the article warns. “Just look at the Arab Spring.

“This is all playing out with nearly perfect historical precision,” the article concludes. “Time and time again throughout history as once great empires accelerated their declines, governments have taken steps to protect their interests against the people.”
Here are more concerns voiced in a discussion that took place last week on GBTV/Real News.

Feds keeping close tabs on us, says NSA whistleblower

“They’re pulling together all the data about virtually every U.S. citizen in the country … and assembling that information,” said NSA whistleblower William Binney during an interview last week conducted by an Internet journalist at a conference in New York City. “So government is accumulating that kind of information about every individual person, and it’s a very dangerous process.”

Binney said some1.6 billion logs have been processed since 2001. Read the story and watch the videotaped interview here. Then call your senator and congressman to, uh, voice your displeasure.
