Senator Dianne Feinstein: So Out Of Touch, She Doesn’t Realize Tech Companies Are Vehemently Against PROTECT SOPA AND PIPA
It’s well past time the aging Diane Feinstein be replaced by Elizabeth Emken the only candidate capable of turning Feinstein’s failed policies RIGHT!
With benign and even positive sounding names, “ Stop Online Piracy Act.” (SOPA) and Prevent on-line Piracy Act, (PIPA), what’s not to like?
When it comes to government regulation particularly by the current administration, it is wise to understand the Latin phrase, “Caveat Emptor.”
Failing that a great fall back position would be “Trust no one”~Fox Mulder THE X Files. This is supposed to be about media after all.
Apparently Dianne Feinstein, the first co-sponsor of Senate Bill 968 in an attempt to ever broaden control over America’s citizens, not only doesn’t have a clue about the legislation she is promoting that among other issues, allows Attorney General Eric Holder during the current administration to request that a site be taken down.
Fortunately, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who was a strong supporter of PIPA, has withdrawn the bill from Senate floor consideration. An election year ploy? Look no further than the comments made by staunch Democrat legislators before the bill was removed from the United States Senate. Republicans failing to pay heed to Caveat Emptor also weighed in. Notably Dianne Feinstein claims to still support the legislation.
Regarding, any site in question that is taken down by this attempted government overreach, nobody from the site being targeted must be given a chance to defend themselves before the judge grants the AG’s request.
The AG doesn’t ask a judge for a search warrant under SOPA, it requests to take down an entire website without a trial, or even a hearing. Let’s just come out and say it, with the Obama administration and its twisted view of reality if they get their way, one is guilty until proven innocent. How and where one proves innocence is still open for debate.
(Not really, just another way of saying Democrats have come up with but another piece of flawed agenda where once again they have failed to anticipate unintended consequences.)
White House Indicates Support for Cybersecurity Bill That Includes CISPA-Like Language. In the “Cybersecurity Act of 2012.” Problem is, the Lieberman-Collins bill is nearly as bad on privacy as CISPA.
