Obama wants unfettered access to your Internet activity

The articles that I post is because I think they are of interest to someone else. By posting these articles doesn’t mean that I necessarily agree with every—or any—opinion in the posted article.

Excerpt: Despite outrage over George Bush's limited ability to wiretap into American phone calls, Obama wants to take it a step further and be able to monitor every single form of communication any American citizen uses.
The same kind of authority the government has to wiretap into phone calls could be coming to Facebook, instant messaging, and every American's browser history, thanks to a push from the Obama administration.

The White House plans to introduce a bill into Congress next year that would give Obama the ability to tap into literally every communication any citizen makes online.
The move causes a whole new level of privacy concerns. After the outrageous uproar of the Bush administration's tapping into American phone records, privacy advocates should be all over this.
In a report on the New York Times, Center for Democracy and Technology VP James Dempsey was quoted as saying, "They basically want to turn back the clock and make Internet services function the way that the telephone system used to function."
White House officials contend the move is necessary to combat terrorism. And based on the language of existing wiretap laws, most of these communications could already be monitored.
However some forms of communication, like Blackberry manufacturer Research in Motion's instant messaging service, are different. And that's what the government is now targeting. It also wants to change the wording of law to make it clear that Obama has full unfettered access to any sort of communication any American has with anyone.

Isn't this what China and a lot of other communist countries are doing with the Internet. We don't need Obama prying into our everyday lives and monitoring things about us, as according to "The Constitution" we still do have "First Amendment Rights" to speak. Here we have a new administration that refuses to protect our borders, files lawsuits against states and Sheriffs that try to enforce immigration laws that are identical to federal immigration laws. We are being invaded by all sorts of illegals coming into this country illegally and we don't have a clue as to how many terrorists are walking in here with them, but yet Obama thinks that monitoring our Internet activities will combat terrorism and be a help to Homeland Security. Sorry, but Obama and all his self appointed czars that he circumvented Congress by appointing them are at a complete loss as to the security of this nation and does not give a rat's butt about American citizen's, what they want, what they need, the economy or what it takes to keep our freedoms intact. ~~AMM
