Your Obama internet ID is waiting

democrats long to restrict free speech and have made it crystal clear, exploring every possibility to shut down conservatives’ expression under the guise of something noble. Sen. Ed Markey of Massachusetts proposed hunting down practitioners of speech he would deem “hate speech.” It was so ridiculous that it was labeled “dangerous.”

U.S. Sen. Edward J. Markey wants the government to study and recommend ways to stop the Internet, TV and radio from “encouraging hate crimes,” but First Amendment advocates say the bill is a menace to free speech.

“This proposed legislation is worse than merely silly. It is dangerous,” said civil liberties lawyer Harvey A. Silverglate, arguing even hate speech is protected absent a crime. “It is not up to Sen. Markey, nor to the federal government, to define for a free people what speech is, and is not, acceptable.”

The demented Harry Reid wants to amend the Constitution to clamp down on free speech:

U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), a current member and former Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee and longtime defender of First Amendment rights, today slammed Senate Democrats’ continued efforts to intimidate and limit the free speech rights of American citizens after the Senate Democratic Leadership again attacked conservative Americans on the Senate Floor:

“How ironic that Senate Democrats are using the platform of the ‘world’s greatest deliberative body’ to seek to undermine the First Amendment free speech rights of other Americans with whom they disagree. As I outlined in a speech on the Senate floor last week, the White House and its Democrat allies in Congress have launched a concerted effort to stifle speech and trample on one of the most fundamental rights that Americans possess. Not only is such an effort offensive to the natural and constitutional rights all Americans cherish, it is also a transparent political ploy. Democrats are simply seeking to distract from their failure to address the real issues facing our country, like our sluggish economy and the President’s disastrous health care law. It is truly a shame that Democrats would attack our most important freedoms in seeking to avoid accountability for their poor leadership.”

Now Barack Obama wants a simple means of tracking every word written by conservatives.

A plot by the Obama administration to impose Internet IDs on Americans is now officially being rolled out, with pilot programs for the controversial online “driver’s license” scheme already beginning in both Michigan and Pennsylvania. According to the White House, the virtual “Identity Ecosystem” being funded and pushed by the federal government is supposed to make the Internet more “secure” and “convenient.” Critics across the political spectrum, however, are warning that the Orwellian scheme only makes it more convenient for the feds to spy on people, control the public, and suppress dissent.

The author points out that such a plan already exists in Red China.

All internet participants would be issued a specific government internet ID:

For critics across the political spectrum, though, the emerging “Identity Ecosystem” regime’s massive dangers far outweigh any purported “benefits” it may offer. “While there are certainly many security problems on the Internet, the world is getting along fine without an online identity ‘ecosystem’ and nothing should be considered that threatens these values,” said senior policy analyst Jay Stanley with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) Speech, Privacy and Technology Project when the plot first became public. “Certainly anything that resembles a national identity system or a ‘driver’s license for the Internet’ must be vehemently opposed.”

It’s patently obvious what Obama’s real intentions are:

Among other concerns, the EFF organization highlighted the “unprecedented” threats to privacy, free speech, and civil liberties in the digital world involved in having government create online IDs. Especially troubling were references in the original Homeland Security plot to making bloggers “authenticate” themselves prior to posting their thoughts on the Web. In other words, as in Communist China , anonymous speech on the Internet could quickly become a thing of the past if Obama gets his way.

Internet anonymity would be a thing of the past. The State would know every site you visited and every word you wrote could be tracked. Obama would have a much easier time identifying targets for the IRS.

Anyone offending the Emperor might find himself on a “high risk choke point” list, as is being done now to gun sellers.

Gun retailers say the Obama administration is trying to put them out of business with regulations and investigations that bypass Congress and choke off their lines of credit, freeze their assets and prohibit online sales.
Since 2011, regulators have increased scrutiny on banks’ customers. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. in 2011 urged banks to better manage the risks of their merchant customers who employ payment processors, such as PayPal, for credit card transactions. The FDIC listed gun retailers as “high risk” along with porn stores and drug paraphernalia shops
Meanwhile, the Justice Department has launched Operation Choke Point, a credit card fraud probe focusing on banks and payment processors. The threat of enforcement has prompted some banks to cut ties with online gun retailers, even if those companies have valid licenses and good credit histories.

Dissent could be controlled or eliminated entirely if it meant your life could be ruined with the rise of an eyebrow.

No word on whether your internet ID would be tattooed onto your forearm.

DrJohn has been a health care professional for more than 30 years. In addition to clinical practice he has done extensive research and has published widely with over 70 original articles and abstracts in the peer-reviewed literature. DrJohn is well known in his field and has lectured on every continent except for Antarctica. He has been married to the same wonderful lady for over 30 years and has three kids- two sons, both of whom are attorneys and one daughter on her way into the field of education. DrJohn was brought up with the concept that one can do well if one is prepared to work hard but nothing in life is guaranteed. Except for liberals being foolish.

    Brought to you by the same fascists that insist that laws requiring id to vote is a clear effort to take away the voting rights of the poor and minorities.

    This certainly goes back to the Fairness Doctrine and even earlier. Leftists only support free speech when they’re not in power. Once they seize power, they despise it.

    It’s no coincidence that leftists label any expression right of center as hate speech, while simultaneously wanting to legislate against hate speech, even though hate speech too is protected by the 1st Amendment, as is anonymous free speech The Collective knows that it possesses inferior arguments that are incapable of withstanding rational debate. So they need to kill free speech once they seize power, hence “the debate is over” syndrome. Prohibiting critical speech is the only way the Collective can protect its propagandist lie machine.

    History teaches us over and over again that leftists are inherently natural fascists. That’s why it’s so dangerous to allow them to participate in government and the public sector on any level.

    No word on whether your internet ID would be tattooed onto your forearm.

    It’d more likely be tied in to the potential of implanted RFID chips.

    There were some rumors floating around, some of which sprang from a satirical site, that ObamaCare would mandate these chips at some point. The Collective dismisses this as an urban legend in a similar way that it dismisses Death Panels as an urban legend. But it’s worth noting here, that ObamaCare was shilled to the public in part on the notion that if you liked your plan, you could keep your plan, and that if you liked your doctor, you could keep your doctor, period.

    How ironic this is:

    A lot of the Silicon Valley types endorsed Obama in 2008, and again in 2012. They are now complaining the loudest. It wasn’t supposed to be this way. They probably need to talk about “fairness” and “openness” to Obama again.

    EVERY American should RESIST IMPLEMENTATION OF INTERNET ID. This signifies the end of freedom of speech in America. This must not be implemented. The government is taking control of everything, and the Internet is NONE OF THEIR BUSINESS.

    Obama is implementing this quietly because he KNOWS most people are AGAINST IT.

    Remember when the White House was asking its lemmings to turn in anyone spreading hate and discontent by expressing any opinion not provided them by the administration?

    Is this latest version any surprise?

    @Kraken: Is this something in Obamacare we do not yet know is there? Mandatory implantation of chips, ala “Invaders From Mars”? Perhaps they can emit an electrical shock if we use the wrong words or vote the wrong way.

    @Kraken: You said:

    This reminds me of the original hippie puke start-ups in Bizeerkley and Columbia — free speech on campus movements very early 1960’s — (by and for the communists) — try finding free speech on a campus today — ask Condoleeza Rice! The SOB’s won’t even let another elite University (Stanford) official speak they are so open – not!

    @Bill:

    The technology already exists and is in regular use in livestock and the natural sciences. The Collective claims that an ObamaCare mandate for just such a chip is an urban legend. But they continue to make the same sort of claims about the IPAB Death Panel, and try to rationalize what the President had to lie to Americans about keeping your doctor and your plan, period. So, make of it what you will.
