Is CISPA A Government Trojan Horse?

by Rwolf Wednesday, May. 30, 2012 at 7:16 PM

U.S. Government Can Use CISPA To Control and Forfeit Corporations & Businesses. Government should be prohibited from using so-call (Certified Self Protected Cyber Entities, their Employees) and Elements to circumvent the Fourth Amendment; escape Public Freedom of Information Requests.

CISPA: The Cyber Information Sharing and Protection Act if passed by Congress would allow U.S. Spy and other government agencies to share confidential Internet and other private information with Government Certified Self Protected Cyber Entities, Certified Cyber Entity Employees and Elements in Government and private sectors to help protect themagainst Cyber threats.

HoweverCISPA would also allow Government agencies, police and government quasi/contractors (WITHOUT WARRANTS) OR LIABILITY to take out of contextany innocent hastily written email, fax or other Internet activity to allege a crime or violation was committed to cause a persons arrest, assess fines or civilly forfeit a business or persons property. U.S. Government can use CISPA to (certify any Self Protected Cyber Entity or their employeeto spy on their employers and clients: (CIVIL Asset Forfeiture Incentive). U.S. Government is not prohibited from paying any Government Certified Cyber Self Protected Entity or Employee; or Element part of government forfeited assets or other compensation that result from the aforementioned providing U.S. Government a corporations or clients private/confidential informationthat (now) require a warrant or court order. Federal. Government currently contracts on a fee/commission-sharing basis with Self Protected Cyber Entities, Elements and Contractors that have security clearances to participate in facilitating arrests and Government asset forfeitures. It is expected U.S. Government, police and private contractorsCivil Asset Forfeiture of Americans property will greatly escalate if CISPA is passed allowing Government certified private cyber entities and their employeesNo Warrant Searches of persons and Businesses confidential Internet Informationthat can be handed over to the government e.g. private emails, faxes, phone and transmitted files for investigation, prosecution and asset forfeiturecircumventing the Fourth Amendment.

Since CISPA, two additional cyber-security bills have been created in the Senate called, The Cyber Security Act of 2012 and SECURE IT Act. Both bills appear unconstitutional; appear designed to circumvent the Fourth Amendment and public Freedom of Information Requests. The Cyber Security Act of 2012 formally known as S. 2105 was created by Senate Democrats, Joe Lieberman and Susan Collins. Similar to CISPA, the Cyber security Act of 2012 would abolish legal walls that stop Federal government and private companies sharing information.

The SECURE IT ACT: S. 2151 was introduced by Senate Republicans on March 1st 2012: would (require) federal contractors to alert government about any cyber threats, forcing such communications between government regulators and corporations. The SECURE IT Act authorizes sharing of persons private Internet information (without a warrant) going beyond what is necessary to report a believed cyber threat. SECURE It Act fails to create a regulatory system at the Federal level to oversee cyber-security threats opening the door for persons and businesses confidential information to be misused and misappropriated by government agencies and private sector government certified cyber entities.

Under CISPA: Government should be prohibited from using so-call (Certified Self Protected Cyber Entities, their Employees) and Elements to circumvent the Fourth Amendment; escape Public Freedom of Information Requests. CORRUPTED: Government Certified Self Protected Cyber Entities and Employees, U.S. Government Agencies, Contractors and Police too easily may use someones confidential Internet Information, e.g. transmitted files and private emails collected (without warrants) to extort Americans, corporations, politicians; for compensation, target a businesses competitor; or sell private information gleaned from warrant-less Internet Surveillance.

If CISPA is passed allowing NO Warrant private self protected cyber entity Spying, some Internet writers and political activists might be dead-meat under NDAA. Americans who write on the Internet or verbally express an opinion against any entity of U.S. Government or its coalition partnersmay under The Defense Authorization Act of 2012be deemed by U.S. Government (someone likely to engage in, support or provoke violent acts or threaten National Security) or (Belligerent) to order an American writer or activists indefinite prison detention.
