It’s called Operation Kill Switch, and it was actually constructed under President George W. Bush, but President Barack Hussein Obama’s administration is being called to the mat to explain it. Probably because Hussein Obama has an itchy Kill Switch finger, and is ready to push the button.
Basically, Operation Kill Switch mandated that the U.S. Government make ready a plan that will cut off all internet and cell phone communications in one fell swoop. And the U.S. Government has created just such an ability.
In November, the United States District Court for the District of Columbia ruled that the Department of Homeland Security must make its plan to shut off the internet and cellphone communications available to the American public. The government has until December 12 to do so, or the Department of Homeland Security can file for an extension of the date to reveal just how Kill Switch works. Knowing the U.S. Government and how much they really care about the people they are supposed to represent (yes, that was a joke) expect an extension.
But don’t get up in arms and scream, “When did we allow our government to take such extreme control?!”
In 1918, a congressional joint resolution authorized the president to assume control of US telegraph systems, in order to operate them during World War I. Then, in 1934, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Communications Act, which decreed, “Upon proclamation by the President that there exists war or a threat of war, or a state of public peril or disaster or other national emergency, or in order to preserve the neutrality of the United States, the President, if he deems it necessary in the interest of national security or defense, may suspend or amend” both wireless radio and phone services, which means it’s not clear whether this could apply to internet service (although the Federal Communications Commission has used that argument before, when deregulating internet service over telephone lines in 2005).
So, there you have it. In just under two weeks, you may be hearing of just how one of the most diabolical plans we’ve allowed our government to create works. But more than likely, due to the powers that be, that communication will not come through.
