The SEC and Department of Homeland Security are saying we need a web backup plan in the event the H1N1 Swine Flu Pandemic forces people to stay in their homes to use computers even more than usual for work or play.

Homeland Security Department accused the GAO of having unrealistic expectations of how the Internet could be managed if millions began to telework from home at the same time as bored or sick schoolchildren were playing online, sucking up valuable bandwidth….Private Internet providers might need government authorization to block popular websites, it said, or to reduce residential transmission speeds to make way for commerce.  http://www.reuters.com/article/newsOne/idUSN2620750120091026?pageNumber=1&virtualBrandChannel=0

Are politician looking craft new ways to get more control on the last free media frontier we have? We believe it is essential that the Internet remain unrestricted with an open platform. 365 days a year, 24/7.  President Obama on the other hand has not been quiet about pushing for Internet legislation.

The government wants to make sure everyone has access to the Internet and have set aside $7.2 billion in stimulus dollars for construction.http://www.examiner.com/x-10317-San-Diego-County-Political-Buzz-Examiner~y2009m10d21-Net-Neutrality-enforcement-may-reach-into-your-computer Again with the stimulus dollars.  Private investment and the private sector is what has spurned it’s growth.  As we have been witness to banks and car companies who accept bailout funds, they also accept government control and regulations. 

Last week the FCC begin consideration of the rules that would protect and promote open broadband pipes to the Internet. Over the next several months, an official rule making proceeding will take place, along with public workshops and technical advisory discussions, allowing everyone to provide feedback before the Commission adopts a final set of rules.  The proposed rules can be found here as a pdf http://hraunfoss.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/FCC-09-93A1.pdf  We found it interesting that on p. 97  the document quotes Thomas Jefferson, “The course of history shows that as the government grows, liberty decreases.”

Google CEO Eric Schmidt and Verizon Wireless CEO Lowell McAdam showed in a joint blog post that stakeholders can work together with mutual respect to find common ground, even as we acknowledge and defend important policy differences.  http://googlepublicpolicy.blogspot.com/2009/10/finding-common-ground-on-open-internet.html

One significant issue, is that the government apparently uses the same Internet protocols and the same operating systems as the private sector, making cyber security a universal problem as opposed to a governmental problem.  Hackers may find a greater payload in targeting critical infrastructure such as power grids, financial or communication networks or air traffic control systems than in attacking the CIA or the Pentagon.  An attack by an adversary nation, much less a cyber extortionist or terrorist, is not so far-fetched. http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/commentary/la-oe-zirin14-2009oct14,0,603775.story

The federally funded Next Generation Internet (NGI) project (http://www.ngi.gov/) exists parallel to and complementary with Internet2, http://www.internet2.edu/ We have trouble believing that America’s nuclear weapons arsenal operate on the standard net. Internet2 is not available to the general public, even though our taxpayer dollars support it.  More about that here https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/07/15/internet-censorship-shocking-treatment-of-taxpayer/ The speed of information-sharing network on Internet2 is now 100 Gbit!

Thomas has the draft of the Rockefeller Cybersecurity Act S 773 here,  http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c111:S.773.  It  gives the president powers to “declare a cybersecurity emergency” and shut down or limit Internet traffic in any “critical” information network “in the interest of national security.”  More of our previous thoughts here https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/08/29/obama-internet-controcybersecurity/

The proposed rules claim that Cisco’s built Internet routers have over 28.1 million lines of code- does anyone realistically foresee the government being able to regulated something so large?  Are attacks of the Swine Flu more common than cyber security breaches?  We we do know that the nation has done a pretty miserable job coordinating it’s response to past emergencies as evidenced by Hurricane Katrina, the financial bailouts, and now the H1N1 Swine Flu Pandemic.  If big brother takes over the Internet, the last bastion of freedom of speech in what is left of our democracy, could be gone.

How noble to not have your brain shocked when using the Internet.

Chinese media reported that a clinic in the eastern Chinese province of Shandong had been treating teenagers suffering from Internet addiction with shock treatment. Yang Yongxin, a doctor of the clinic, reportedly used a current of 1-5 milliamperes on the young patients and described the treatment as “therapy to clear the mind” which he claimed would not cause brain damage.  http://www.sinolinx.com/frame/?url=http://www.chinatechnews.com/2009/07/15/10144-ministry-of-health-halts-electric-shock-treatment-for-internet-addiction-in-china/

Turn to Cass Sunstein, President Obama’s choice to head the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs- things like the Internet and blogs.

Prison Planet http://www.prisonplanet.com/cass-sunsteins-despicable-ideas-on-regulating-the-internet.html  says “Sunstein’s book is a blueprint for online censorship as he wants to hold blogs and web hosting services accountable for the remarks of commenters on websites while altering libel laws to make it easier to sue for spreading “rumors.”

Rep. Linda T. Sanchez has this bill http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c111:H.R.1966 pending that says, “`Sec. 881. Cyberbullying. (a) Whoever transmits in interstate or foreign commerce any communication, with the intent to coerce, intimidate, harass, or cause substantial emotional distress to a person, using electronic means to support severe, repeated, and hostile behavior, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.`(b) As used in this section-(1) the term `communication’ means the electronic transmission, between or among points specified by the user, of information of the user’s choosing, without change in the form or content of the information as sent and received; and(2) the term `electronic means’ means any equipment dependent on electrical power to access an information service, including email, instant messaging, blogs, websites, telephones, and text messages.’

If one were to comment on your blog or call text that you are a butt head and I disagree with you, this wording could be interpreted as causing severe distress to said butt head and he/she  could sue.  WTF is wrong with people?  WAKE T F UP.

In an attempt to again reduce freedom of speech, I wonder if Obama has plans to torture and do a little shock and awe on internet users in the USA?  With the coming of Internet 2, 3, 4, 5 etc we are already restricted. The federally funded Next Generation Internet (NGI) project (http://www.ngi.gov/) exists parallel to and complementary with Internet2.

“The very high performance Backbone Network Service (vBNS) “is a network that will connect around one-hundred research institutions – and already links five NSF supercomputer centers – at 2.4 gigabits per second by the year 2000.” The vBNS has been around since 1995. Gigabits per second (G/bps)” refers to a billion bits (or ten to the ninth power – 1,000,000,000 – bits of information) when used to describe data transfer rates,” and these are carried over GigaPoPs,…blah blah. http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0FWE/is_11_3/ai_57785870/

“Eventually, these applications will be available to non-members, though estimates of when that will take place vary from one to many years.” 

Translation- Internet2 is filled with bits of information that the common internet user does not have access to.  I am just betting some of those research institutions get some of our federal tax dollars and probably stimulus dollars. National Security sites aside, if  U.S. tax dollars are paying for a full upload of the Library of Congress, then U.S. taxpayers should have full acess.

Shocking indeed.

60,ooo people are in evacuation zones.  Ten fixed-wing aircrafts and 15 helicopters are on the scene.  The governor has declared Santa Barbara, California to be in a state of emergency.  Limited power outages are being reported.  This is not FEMA in charge of a pandemic flu eruption, it is the Jesusita Fire, burning thousands of acres, destroying homes.http://www.countyofsb.org/ceo/oes0.aspx?id=2332 

Come rain or shine, your government and FEMA stand ready to help you in the event of disasters like hurricanes, fire, or flu! 

Two years before Katrina, in 2003, Congress appropriated money under the auspice of a goal of effective digital mapping of floodplains for 90 percent of the U.S. population by 2010.   20,000 communities appears to be at risk in The National Flood Insurance Program Community Status Book http://www.fema.gov/fema/csb.shtm.  A bonus point is awarded to the government, as the study funded aerial surveillance images of 20,000 communities.  The collection of the digital data that are used in GIS systems for supposedly creating new Flood Insurance Rate Maps can be found in detail at http://geospatial.edublogs.org/2009/03/26/united-states-fema-flood-plains-zones/fdnka 

H.R. 645 IH, `National Emergency Centers Establishment Act’, directs the Secretary of Homeland Security to establish national emergency centers on military installations, aka FEMA Camps.  If our soldiers are too busy fighting in Iraq or Afghanistan we could rely on H.R. 1388, The Give Act or The Serve America Act which has six versions before congress.  All versions outline required and eligible national service, aka national Civilian Community Corps programs,http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c111:H.R.1388, Section 10 – including opportunities for participation in emergency and disaster preparedness, relief, and recovery. http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/F?c111:6:./temp/~c111Dyc0uT:e634 

The Twentynine Palms Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center in California, is the nation’s largest base and the principal U.S. training facility for Marines and sailors deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq. 30 Marines have been quarantined after one became the first U.S. serviceman known to have contracted the swine flu virus.  http://www.reuters.com/article/domesticNews/idUSTRE53T02920090430  If the flu virus spread to 8,000 soldiers at 29 Palms they would be rendered useless for pandemic assistance. Obama could rely upon the Civilian Community Corps or a militarized FEMA. Skip to my lou my darling, right over the National Guard.

29 Palms is also home of the alleged, “Would you shoot  an American Quiz?”  where Marines refused to answer if they would target American citizens for gun confiscation if ordered to do so.  http://www.knowthelies.com/?q=node/3925

Then there’s this little diddy.

TITLE:Emergency Assistance for Human Influenza Pandemic, Disaster Assistance Policy 9523.17
DATE:March 31, 2007
PURPOSE: Establish the types of emergency protective measures that are eligible under the Public Assistance Program during a Federal response to an outbreak of human influenza pandemic in the U.S. and its territories…  more at http://www.fema.gov/government/grant/pa/9523_17.shtmybe

Section IV-
A second wave of global spread should be anticipated within a year, based on past experience.
SectionVII
Management, control, and reduction of immediate threats to public health and safety.
Movement of supplies and persons.
Security forces, barricades and fencing, and warning devices.
Mass mortuary services.
Recovery and disposal of animal carcasses (except if another federal authority funds the activity – e.g., U.S. Department of Agriculture, Animal, Plant and Health Inspection Service provides for removal and disposal of livestock). What, like flu infected pigs, birds, or cows?

Fema also heads up the National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP). Designed to protect the critical infrastructure and key resources (CI/KR) of the United States is essential to the Nation’s security, public health and safety, economic vitality, and way of life.  http://www.dhs.gov/xlibrary/assets/NIPP_Plan.pdf  

Maybe Elvis himself is working on a PATRIOT Act III or even Internet III.  Perhaps it would contain an amendment to overturn posse comitatus, then FEMA could be militarized and Obama wouldn’t  have to rely solely on paid volunteers who sign up for the national service program.  Unless of course they all have the flu as well.  What if America can not service its debt, the printing presses stop and our economy comes to a halt? Would FEMA maintain control in an economically collapsed, flu infected, fire torched, flood ravaged nation through a military dictatorship led by Obama? 

12.160Mhz website lists suspected FEMA “Concentration”  Camps  http://snardfarker.ning.com/profiles/blogs/list-of-active-fema.  Above Top Secret http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread24903/pg1  suggests these  locations as potential FEMA Camps. There is a whole shit load of Executive Orders that in theory could render the power of FEMA as absolute including these from http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread24903/pg1.

Sourced from lots of conspiracy spots, “The Rex 84 Program was established on the reasoning that if a “mass exodus” of illegal aliens crossed the Mexican/US border, they would be quickly rounded up and detained in detention centers by FEMA. Rex 84 allowed many military bases to be closed down and to be turned into prisons. Operation Cable Splicer and Garden Plot are the two sub programs which will be implemented once the Rex 84 program is initiated for its proper purpose. Garden Plot is the program to control the population. Cable Splicer is the program for an orderly takeover of the state and local governments by the federal government.”

Is the Swine Flu that originated in Mexico a test run for the Rex 84 Program? Is the most recent declared health emergency test of FEMA ability to execute and control? An official FEMA National Level Exercise 2009 (NLE 09) is scheduled for July 27 through July 31, 2009. NLE 09 will be the first major exercise conducted by the United States government that will focus exclusively on terrorism prevention and protection, as opposed to incident response and recovery.  http://www.fema.gov/media/fact_sheets/nle09.shtm

If you’re a victim of the pandemic flu you definitely need to be in isolation.   Off you go to camp.  Refuse a mandatory vaccination?  Off you go to camp.  Qualify as a Homeland Security Threat?  Off you go to camp.  A threat to national security by going to church, owning a gun, having more than 2.5 children?  Off you go. Conspiracy or factual evidence of collusion, Liberty for Life http://www.libertyforlife.com/jail-police/us-concentration_camp-locations.htm  continues to outlines some potential cases of off you go. 

While the flu pandemic for the time being seems to be subsiding who knows what lies ahead during future flu seasons.  Obama is gearing up for the possibility of issuing 3 flu shots- 2 for swine flu and 1 for the common flu. Is ordering new flu shots, not knowing the severity of the Swine Flu’s illness or its vaccine efficacy part of Operation Garden Plot leaving an opening for FEMA to have more control? Is Obama heeding the Fema warning with good conscience that, “A second wave of global spread should be anticipated within a year, based on past experience?”

Does FEMA has the authority to maintain order and create chaos in and of itself?  With the risk of flood, flu, fire, hurricanes, global warming, a declining economy- one might decide to have a few drinks to celebrate that America for all her faults, is still the best country in the world.  Oh hell, click here to enlarge : a map showing % of binge drinkers (adults having five or more drinks on one occasion). courtesy if the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System GIS data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website. http://geospatial.edublogs.org/2009/04/13/united-states-cdc-behavioral-risk-factor-surveillance-system-brfss/  .

 pig2

The U.S. Department of Agriculture will begin collecting genetic sequences of swine flu found on pig farms in the future, says Nancy Cox director of the influenza division at the CDC.  The News Observer http://www.newsobserver.com/news/story/1510217.html  is reporting, and “the new H1N1 virus contains strains from past swine viruses.  Just yesterday, Canadian scientists completed the full genetic sequencing of the H1N1 swine flu virus, http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20090506/wl_canada_afp/healthflucanadascience_20090506170314  and reports, ” lab work  appears to suggest that there’s nothing at the genetic level that differentiates this virus that we’ve got from Mexico and those from Nova Scotia and Ontario.  Whew, there doesn’t appear to be a genetic drift, just bad luck.   Nothing to worry about; just the first ever mutation of pig, bird, and human virus.

Scientists have been busy mapping the human genome, where, “A genetic linkage map shows the relative locations of specific DNA markers along the chromosome. Any inherited physical or molecular characteristic that differs among individuals and is easily detectable in the laboratory is a potential genetic marker. http://www.ornl.gov/sci/techresources/Human_Genome/publicat/primer/prim2.html  Humans and animals are a reassortment of our parents but susceptible to variations internally and environmentally.  Birth defects, autism, cancers, food supplies, personal choice, and access to heath care all influence mortality. Throw in the possibility of man made disease or germ warfare and population control comes to mind.

The International HapMap Project http://www.hapmap.org/  studies  human genetic variation and the Encyclopedia of DNA Elements, or ENCODE  http://www.genome.gov/10005107  project.  Note that ENCODE is just one letter away from ENDCODE.  For all intents and purposes, the Human Genome project is complete, but could sciences manipulation of genes and genetic markers result in the END of mankind, civilization as we know it?   Will your government now begin to automatically collect human DNA at birth for genetic sequencing?  Do they already?  Is ENCODE really ENDGAME?

A Russian Foreign Ministry report states that President Obama has secretly ordered the immediate opening of Americas vast gulag of concentration camps, built since 2001 and estimated able to hold a further 1 million of their citizens, which is aside from the 2.3 million currently imprisoned in what has become the Worlds largest Prison Nation in all of history, in what they are calling Project ENDGAME. http://www.fourwinds10.com/siterun_data/government/new_world_order/news.php?q=1235601651

Diplomat and author Peter Dale Scott, the KBR contract is part of a Homeland Security plan titled ENDGAME, which sets as its goal the removal of “all removable aliens” and “potential terrorists.”  “The federal government has assumed the authority to institute martial law, arrest a wide swath of dissidents (citizen and non citizen alike), and detain people without legal or constitutional recourse in the event of “an emergency influx of immigrants in the U.S., or to support the rapid development of new programs.” http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2008/02/04/ED5OUPQJ7.DTL  Would millions of infected people, people who refused vaccinations, people with unacceptable genetic markers be targeted?

Harvard Medical School’s Institutional is recruiting volunteers for it’s Personal Genome Project that will hold cell lines for 50 years by the Coriell Institute’s Human Genetic Cell Repository. http://www.genomeweb.com/sequencing/personal-genome-project-enroll-100-more-participants-summer-seeks-raise-15m-dona Participants’ DNA will be analyzed, but have not revealed how this will be done, or what sequencing technology the project anticipates using. Would they mutate your DNA, mix it with a dog and see what happens like in the movie Shaggy Dog,where experiments turn the dad into a dog?  They say everyone has a twin, were you cloned like the Dolly the sheep?  Could you be recreated in the lab after death? 

What about the legal, ethical and social implications in humans? (ELSI)

A number of federal and state laws prohibit insurance discrimination to various degrees. {ROFL} The Health Insurance Portability Protection Act (HIPAA)  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HIPAA  recognizes genetic information as Protected Health Information (PHI) and specifies protection for the confidentiality of PHI.  The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act has a similar purpose.  Government health reform is embracing national standards for electronic health care transactions and national identifiers for providers, health insurance plans, and employers.  At the same time Rockefeller is warning of national security threats to the nation’s Internet.  Enter, restricted Internet II.  http://www.internet2.edu/network/ As noted by Pew Research, “People will wittingly and unwittingly disclose more about themselves, gaining some benefits in the process even as they lose some privacy.” http://www.pewinternet.org/Reports/2006/The-Future-of-the-Internet-II.aspx

President Obama has set aside “$4.7-billion that will be doled out under a new grant program administered by a small Commerce Department agency called the National Telecommunications and Information Administration. The project as “the first step in realizing President Obama’s vision of bringing the benefits of broadband technology to all Americans.” http://chronicle.com/free/2009/04/16710n.htm Anyone know where you can not get Internet access in America now?

The fear is justified. As the author of both The Coming Plague and Betrayal of Trust: The Collapse of Global Public Health, she sees great dangers lurking; in the desire of some groups to turn disease into a weapon, and the failure of others to prepare themselves for that threat.  http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2003/04/0409_030409_lauriegarrett.html  SARS, Ebola, AIDS, Flu, Small Pox, Anthrax, – all grave dangers, contagious.  Are infected persons to be rounded up, what of their civil rights? Privacy out the door?  

“Maybe the CDC should do an epidemiology study and see where all these new emerging diseases are clustering around. They might be surprised to find them popping up around biotechnology centers”, notes http://watchdogonscience.blogspot.com/2009/04/new-swine-influenza-hin1-infects-humans.html. Baxter Pharmaceutical, chosen by The World Health Organization to lead the way to a vaccine cure has a bio lab, just 50 miles from the flu’s outbreak.  Coincidence? https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/05/05/baxter-pharmaceutical-plant-in-mexico-ground-zero-for-flu-outbreak/ 

India has all but accused America of engineering the flu, accusing  the U.S. government of seeking a monopoly on controlling the virus for two reasons. Firstly to be able to dominate the vaccine market and make vast profits from providing the cure and secondly to potentially develop the strain into a potent biological weapon, accusing the Australian government of stealing Indonesia’s strain of H5N1 to make bird flu vaccines. http://www.abc.net.au/am/content/2008/s2167325.htm  The article is dates Wednesday, 20 February 2009, nearly a month before anyone began paying attention to this outbreak.

“It would seem that George Orwell might have been more prophetic than we perhaps gave him credit for”, says http://www.linuxjournal.com/content/internet-censorship-us-or-just-law-enforcement.
