The Internet: The Gravest Danger to America’s Security

That’s the opinion of Senator John D. (Jay) Rockefeller IV (D-WV):


I wonder if Sen. Rockefeller would support a treason charge against Al Gore for inventing it?

Senator Rockefeller isabsolutely right!

The Internet is the single grevest danger to America's security. America's political security, that is.

Much as how the Internet allowed factual information to reach Soviet citizens, in this age of spin doctoring at an ICU level, web publishing and online fact checking represent the single greatest threat to our prevaricating and corrupt politicians.

Any cyber-security problems posed by the Internet are curable. By contrast, few other tools exist outside of the web that promise any significant alteration to our current one-party system of the almighty dollar.

Finally, given that vast majority of our politicians couldn't tell ROM from RAM if it bit them on the neck nor distinguish between a data bus or public transit vehicle were they run over by the latter, WHO THE F%@K ARE THESE TECHNOLOGICAL ILLITERATES to tell us what constitutes a cyber-threat and what does not?

I would rather see Kolan McConiughey referee a championship pro bowling tournament than have Senator Rockefeller monitor a single Ebay transaction.

Great comment, Zenster. I agree wholeheartedly! Rockefeller should resign immediately. He and his fascist bankster ilk have done more damage to this country on their own.

Zenster nails it.

The internet enables and connects global interests and critical efforts like the "International Free Press Society" which the elite, as yet, cannot control.

The EU is also trying to limit the freedoms in cyber-space and the reason why they want it shut down is perfectly simple. So they once again can brainwash the population with their garbage and thus have easier to control them like in the old days. They don't like that the citizens can find information about islam and the multicultural project that tells the opposite of what they are trying to sell to the masses.

Rebel Radius --

Gates of Vienna's rules about comments require that they be civil, temperate, on-topic, and show decorum. Your comment violated the last of these rules. We keep a PG-13 blog, and exclude foul language, explicit descriptions, and epithets. This is why I deleted your comment.

Use of asterisks is an appropriate alternative.

That pr*** is setting the foundation for censorship of the net. They have the technology now they are appealing to the peasants to acquiesce quietly. The guise used will be child pornography, child predators on line and here is another one, security.
