Cybersecurity Bill Proposes Unprecedented Government Power Over the Internet – A cybersecurity bill introduced today in the Senate would give the federal government extraordinary power over private sector Internet services, applications and software. The Cybersecurity Act of 2009 would, for example, give the President unfettered power to shut down Internet traffic in emergencies or disconnect any critical infrastructure system or network on national security grounds. The bill would grant the Commerce Department the ability to override all privacy laws to access any information about Internet usage in connection with a new role in tracking cybersecurity threats. The bill, introduced by Sens. John Rockefeller and Olympia Snowe, would also give the government unprecedented control over computer software and Internet services, threatening innovation, freedom and privacy. CDT President and CEO Leslie Harris said, “The cybersecurity threat is real, but such a drastic federal intervention in private communications technology and networks could harm both security and privacy.” April 01, 2009, From: https://www.cdt.org/headlines/1196

IINET has pulled out of the federal Government’s internet filtering trials.
iiNet only agreed to participate in the trial to demonstrate that the filter was flawed and a waste of taxpayers’ money, iiNet managing director Michael Malone said.
Mr Malone cited drawn-out negotiations with the Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy (DBCDE), constant changes in policy, and last week’s leak of a secret internet blacklist as reasons for pulling out.
“It became increasingly clear that the trial was not simply about restricting child pornography or other such illegal material, but a much wider range of issues including what the Government simply describes as ‘unwanted material’ without an explanation of what that includes,” Mr Malone said.
iiNet’s withdrawal from the ISP filter trials is another blow for the controversial project. Last week the federal Government’s plans for the nationwide internet filter were put in jeopardy when its top-secret blacklist of banned web pages was leaked.
The list is currently being used as the backbone of the Government’s internet filter trial of which phase one is being conducted by Primus Telecommunications, Tech 2U, Webshield, OMNIconnect, Netforce and Highway 1.
iiNet was not involved in phase one of the trials but had applied to be involved in subsequent phases.
The secret blacklist, which was leaked to the whistle-blower website Wikileaks, is purportedly the same list the Australian Communications and Media Authority distributes to vendors of approved internet filters to ban offensive material — such as child pornography, bestiality and violence.
Senator Conroy plans to use parts of the ACMA blacklist to block Australian internet users from accessing pornographic and violent material.
Listen to the Senator for West Virginia, Jay Rockefeller saying in this clip from CSPAN that the Internet is a “fearsome awesome problem” and it would have been better if it had never been invented.
While the implications of this comment may seem fairly innocent, it has been suggested they are anything but. Alarmingly evidence has been gathered which indicates a 9/11 of the Internet is planned – a major cyber attack and that this may occur in the not-too-distant future. Consequently, some believe that Jay Rockefeller may have demonized the cybersphere on CSPAN in preparation for setting himself up as the saviour after an attack.
The reason the Internet is a prime target for an attack is clear. The so-called “elite”, of which the Rockefeller family are regarded as kingpins, are likely to be reeling at the amount of information there is on the Internet that had previously been concealed from the public eye. Many have now learnt about the depopulation agenda and that 9/11, 7/7, the OKC, the Madrid and as well as the Bali bombings were perpetrated by criminal elements inside governments. Plus, the veil of secrecy has been lifted back far enough to expose that the “elite’s” primary goal is to set up a tyrannical one-world government which they want solely under their control at almost everyone else’s expense.
The Rockefellers are not used to their plans having this kind of massive exposure, as they have been able to control the levers of the mainstream media for quite some time. As this comment from David Rockefeller reveals, not only have they wielded great power over major publications for over forty years, but the media’s silence made it possible for them to develop their plans for the world.
“…it would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years.” -David Rockefeller, Bilderberg Meeting, Germany 1991.
