This article makes some great points on this topic and everyone should read it:

http://www.examiner.com/article/obama-signs-executive-order-to-allow-shut-down-of-all-us-communications

But this is a very frustrating topic. Obama signed this executive order right before the 4th of July holiday weekend and nobody is paying attention! Even the most politically engaged checked out over the 4th of July weekend.

This executive order gives the government power to turn off EVERY communication device with the flip of a switch. All Obama has to do is say the word and he can turn off any of our means to communicate. He reasons that this is in the interest of National Security.

Lets make sense of this argument. During the 2012 election, Obama and Biden said that the US had triumphed over terrorism, and he consistently said that the war on terror was ending, Al Qaeda was on its heals, etc. Regarding boarder security, when we know Hezbollah is working with the cartels in Mexico just across our boarder, the President turns it in to a racial issue. He has no interest in security the boarder when current law actually already requires it. But when the NSA is spying on us, National Security is SOOOO important. And when he wants to shut down our means of communicating, National Security is a top priority.

Its inconsistent.

Honestly this scares me. Is Obama Big Brother? Because it sure seems he has the power to be.

Though one can look at it this way: If I’m not doing anything to threat national security my technological devices and everything should be fine.

I think that the growing hacker community has a LOT to worry about though. I think this move is directed at groups like Anonymous, WikiLeaks, etc. Such groups would be nothing without today’s means of technological communication, and this executive order on Obama’s part compromises these more progressive, liberal ways of utilizing today’s communication methods.

It seems like Obama is trying to preserve the control that former presidents were once able to have on a much smaller dime… the control to control the information that its citizens are able to access.
