The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, CISPA is set to be re-introduced before the US House next week. The bill will be identical to the one introduced last spring, that was defeated on the Senate floor in August of last year.

The house Intelligence Committee chairman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) and Representative Dutch Ruppersberger (D-Md) will attempt the re-introduction based on a spate of cyber espionage and hacking attacks.

Civil liberties groups have criticized the bill for invading privacy. CISPA allows for the voluntary sharing of information about internet traffic between private companies and the government. Its intention is to assist the intelligence service in identifying  and neutralizing cyber and hacking attacks and to ensure the security of networks against attack .

The bill would also allow the government to pass information to private companies and protect them from legal actions that may arise from the sharing of information.

Opponents of the bill say it will allow government to track an individuals browsing information, allowing them to spy on individuals at will.

Fight for the Future, a non-profit group’working to extend the internet’s powers for good’ have already started an online petition which asks voters to call their representatives on the House Intelligence Committee to register their opposition to the bill.

Several newspapers have recently become victims of cyber spying. The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post have all been attacked.

Janet Napolitano, head of Homeland Security said in January:

“We shouldn’t wait until there is a 9/11 in the cyber world. There are things we should be doing right now that,if not prevent, would mitigate the extent of the damage.”

Last October Leon Panetta also warned of the possibility of a ‘cyber Pearl Harbor”

Despite the huge amount of opposition to the bill President Obama is expected to issue an Executive order aimed at strengthening US cyber security, the order is expected to be released after he delivers the State of the Union address on Tuesday.

    C’mon folks, its all about our safety……..

    What a fucking tyrannical heap of steaming shit. Whenever these assholes can’t pass it through the legislative process and the public outcry against it becomes too loud, they just get the front man puppet to do the dirty work. I DO NOT GIVE MY CONSENT TO BE TRACKED, TRACED, FOLLOWED and SPIED UPON BY YOU CONTROL FREAKS!

    Yes, I know that doesn’t mean anything and neither does this executive order. All this will do is create a huge market for anonymous proxy services, ghost mail and encryption software. It’s not as if anything they ever legislate actually stops a crime. All these retards ever accomplish is fucking the honest person.

      “All these retards ever accomplish is fucking the honest person.”

      Which is their intent.

    Obama MUST go! He is an absolute dictator, using executive orders illegally as a way to legislate anything his evil heart desires.

    His government can spy on us all it wants, but just try and get straight answers about anything controversial and it’s impossible. And, just try to spy on him or his administration-there will be a drone with your name on it.

    As I said, OBAMA MUST GO! Impeach this ass now while there is still a little bit of America left.

  • unsheepled

    Hes doing what hes paid to do.. not by the munchkins that voted…naw , the BIG BANKS that OWN him and all the other SOBs before him !

    • intheend

      The problem is he is not supposed to be serving the big banks and corporations. The President of the United States is owned by the people, and the President has only one responsibility: Uphold the Constitution of The United States of America. The fact that Obama spent his entire first term in office circumventing it should be enough to have him impeached and tried for treason.

      One Big Awful Mistake America = OBAMA

  • Lowtolerance

    Well now, we just can’t have our beloved corporate superpowers hacked by just anybody can we? We gotta protect them while we’re still waiting on that trickle.

  • bob

    who among our elected officials has the Balls to Impeach this asshole

  • Pam

    Obama just wants to shut down the Internet, so we cannot talk to each other about Impeaching him!He’s just given 700 BILLION of our tax dollars to foreign companies and nations, and get this, The 12 Most Corrupted Politicians are sitting on the Senate Committee on Fiance!Obama is literally stealing money and redistributing it where he wants to.

  • tusense96761
