    • Obama and Congress ApproveResolution that Supports UN InternetTakeoverSusanne PoselOccupy CorporatismMay 29, 2012In late 2011, representative from China,Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan submitted aproposal called the International Code ofConduct for Information Security (ICCIS) tothe UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon thatcalled for international consensus of a globalset of rules and regulations that standardizeinformation flow on the internet.The ICCIS sets forth specific “principles ofmaintaining information and network securitywhich cover the political, military, economic,social, cultural, technical and other aspects.”The ICCIS mandates that countries not be allowed to use information and telecommunicationstechnologies “to conduct hostile behaviors and acts of aggression or to threaten international peace andsecurity and stress that countries have the rights and obligations to protect their information andcyberspace as well as key information and network infrastructure from threats, interference andsabotage attacks.”Read the full text here . Army General Keith Alexander, commander of the US Cyber Command (USCC) and director of the National Security Agency (NSA), does not support the UN’s International Telecommunication Union; citing that the US needs to independently protect their “critical networks” such as electrical power, banking, transportation and other “key elements of society”. Alexander would like for individual nations to control and regulate their internet. Keith suggests using cloud technology by remote computer servers to mitigate cyber threats and monitor the activity of web users. He said: “These are things that you must do to secure your networks for government survivability.” Alexander mentioned that the Congress is currently debating whether or not to mandate US firms be required to admit their knowledge of information concerning cyber- attacks.
    • “Here’s what concerns me: What we’re seeing is destructive[digital] payloads coming out, payloads that can make a bluescreen of death, that can stop your operating system, your routeror peripheral devices,” Alexander said.The increase of cell phone and internet use has elevated the threatlevel, according to Alexander. He sees this technology in the hands ofthe general public as a lack of security of the years and would like tosee more stringent controls put in place.Shawn Henry, FBI executive assistant director for cyber-issues and aconference speaker would like to see the ability of the US governmentto identify anonymous cyber-attackers and called for “assurance” oftelecommunications to control the internet by remote security. Henry stated: “The Internet wasdeveloped with protocols allowing for anonymity and there are legitimate reasons for wanting it thatway. But for those critical uses of the Internet where intrusion is entirely unacceptable and we must beable to identify the users, market-driven factors may prompt the private sector to explore solutions andalternate architectures to meet those needs.”Senator Marco Rubio affirmed that the State Department will assign a speaker to send to internationaltalks with the UN in December of this year.Rubio, who denounced the FCC for internet neutrality and then suddenly withdrew his support of theProtect IP Act (PIPA) and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA). Then admonished Senate Majorityleader Harry Reid to bring SOPA and PIPA back to the Senate floor for re-discussion.When speaking about China’s internet censoring practices, Rubio said: “Any place that bans certainterms from search should not be a leader in international Internet regulatory framework.” Rubio isabsolutely hypocritical, believing that his support of internet regulatory laws is somehow different thanChina’s outright internet controls.Sen. Rubio Discusses Possible UN Regulation of Internet Governancehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=msAxRDhymw8 Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State, has promoted the use of cell phone technology to “amplify” the US government’s ability to survey American and international citizens. The UN’s International Telecommunication Union (ITU) is an agency of the UN that oversees the international regulation of long-distance calls and satellite orbits. Russia, who originally co- founded the ITU, supports it as an international cooperation on cybersecurity and internet matters. Robert McDowell, Federal Communications Commissions (FCC) commissioner said back in 2011 that the ITU was an attempt by authoritarian regimes to reshape the internet as we know it. McDowell supposed that this multi-stakeholders progression would be governed through non-governmental organizations (NGOs).
    • McDowell said: “The commission plays, actually, asupporting role as a sort of technical advisor to the StateDepartment. The State Department takes the lead role onthat. I understand that through both private and publicinformation that the State Department will beannouncing a head of the U.S. delegation, a headnegotiator, probably next month sometime.“This comes at a crucial time as some very crucialmeetings are going to take place internationally later inJune leading towards a treaty negotiation in Dubai thisDecember,” said McDowell. “So it’s really of utmostimportance that the United States cultivates alliesthroughout the world and especially the developingworld, which could be devastated by internationalregulation of Internet governance.”Scott Cleland, a member of the United StatesDepartment of State Advisory Committee on International Communications and Information Policy(USDSACICIP), holds that the creation of “ITUnet” would essentially be an international alternative tothe current internet that is totally controlled by global governance through supposed voluntarycompliance, yet rules and regulations would be enforced by international law.Cleland said: “Everything about the Internet is voluntary, and in order for this to work, countries wouldhave to leave the Internet and join an ‘ITUnet’. Only authoritarian regimes and their allies want an‘ITUnet’. That would provide political cover for them to take control of their national Internet.”This argument of international versus US governmental control over the internet seems moot toEvgenvy Morozov , member of the think-tank the New American Foundation.Morozov stated: “While Hillary Clinton likes to give speeches in which she fashions herself the world’sgreatest defender of “Internet freedom,” the harsh reality is that her own government is its greatestenemy. Given the never-ending flow of draconian copyright and cybersecurity laws coming fromWashington, this fact is getting harder and harder to conceal from the global public, who starts towonder why American diplomats keep criticizing Russia or China but don’t say anything about theimpressive online spying operation that the National Security Agency is building in Utah.”Now, in response to the debates over UTI, the US Congress has approved HR 628 claims to support “preserve, enhance, and increase access to an open, global Internet.” Congress has taken the position of thinking of themselves as an “advocate for the free flow of information, Internet freedom, and multi-stakeholder governance internationally.” Yet our Congress has shown conflicting points of view when contending that they are a multi-stakeholder supporting global governance which is in direct opposition with promoting the free flow of information and internet freedom.
    • The Obama administration created the International Strategy forCyberspace (ISC) which makes an international governance policypriority.Obama’s desire to facilitate the US government’s push toward globalengagement, the ISC encompasses a new vision for cyberspace.By using economic prosperity dependent on revamping cyberspace,Obama places the need for over-reaching cybersecurity over theinternet.By militarizing the control over the web, Obama claims the internet as a“strategic national asset” malleable by the US government. Obamacontended that protecting the internet will be a national security priorityand that: “We will ensure that these networks are secure, trustworthyand resilient.”“This is just the beginning of a conversation within governments,between governments, the private sector and beyond,” said Howard Schmidt, the White Housecybersecurity coordinator.According to HR 628: “Resolved, That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that if a resolution calling for endorsement of the proposed international code of conduct for information security or a resolution inconsistent with the principles above comes up for a vote in the United Nations General Assembly or other international organization, the Permanent Representative of the United States to the United Nations or the United States representative to such other international organization should oppose such a resolution.” The UTI and HR 628 are evidences of the end of freeflowing information that is protected by and for the people.As governments place more stringent controls on the web, and the soon-to-be ratification of the UTI inDecember of this year, we can be assured that we will very quickly only have access to information thatis approved by the UN. http://www.infowars.com/The Obama Deception The Truth About Barry Soetoro AKA Barack Obama video belowhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAaQNACwaLwFall of the Republic video belowhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VebOTc-7shU
