The Australian government is pressing forward as quickly as it can on its plan to force all Australian citizens with internet access to install government-approved anti-virus software on their computers. If they refuse, the government plans to order their internet service providers to terminate their access to the internet.
According to News.com.au, “Australians would be forced to install anti-virus and firewall software on their computers before being allowed to connect to the internet under a new plan to fight cybercrime. And if their computer did get infected, internet service providers like Telstra and Optus could cut off their connection until the problem was resolved.”
Under the guise of stopping child pornography and other online crimes, Australia’s government will reserve the right to allow access to websites only approved by the government, like China and Iran do, when a government-approved filter will later be installed to complement the mandated anti-virus software. This, of course, will not stop the cybercrimes they are supposedly targeting because criminals always find ways around software that is designed to hamper or prevent their actions. In the end, it’s always the law-abiding citizens who get the short end of the stick.
Wikileaks posted a leaked document earlier this year that supplied a list of the types of websites the Australian government will target–“online poker sites, YouTube links, Wikipedia entries, euthanasia sites, websites of fringe religions such as satanic sites, fetish sites, Christian sites, the website of a tour operator and even a Queensland dentist.” Some web-based games will also be on the list.
This past spring when the Obama administration got wind of these plans, they were quick to let their disapproval be known (see here). But now the U.S. government has done a complete 180 with a U.S. Senate committee approving plans to give the U.S. President an internet “kill switch” in the Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act, S. 3480. The bill has now been approved for a vote on the Senate floor in the near future. It stipulates that a new Executive Branch office (White House Office for Cyberspace Policy) and a new Homeland Security division (National Center for Cybersecurity and Communications) “work with private US companies to create cybersecurity requirements for the electrical grid, telecommunications networks and other critical infrastructure.”
But the term “critical infrastructure” is the catch-22 of the bill. What constitutes “critical infrastructure” is not defined in detail, leaving the President and Congress with a blank check to do as they please with no regard for the free speech rights, freedom of information rights, privacy rights, commercial freedoms, or civil liberties of American citizens. And this bill is promoted with the convenient psychological weapon of fearmongering, claiming that it’s all to prevent cyber terrorism and hacking.
So why is it that the U.S. federal government has changed in a matter of a few months to embrace policies similar to Australia’s that were previously criticized? It’s all for the sake of the New World Order. The people who want to rule the world are simply moving forward on their plans to curttail the freedoms of citizens all over the globe. It’s no coincidence that the Bilderbergs met at the beginning of June in Spain and now the U.S. Senate is pressing on at breakneck speed to give the President the “internet kill switch.” There are several things still standing in the way of the New World Order groups (i.e. the Vatican, Bilderbergers, Freemasons, Eastern Stars, CFR, Trilateral Commission, etc.) and one of them is the free flow of information via the internet that allows people to educate themselves about what in the world is going on. In order to rule over the world’s commoners (as they see us), you have to keep them ignorant and on a short leash. Thus, control of the internet (which is killing the New World Order’s media outlets of newspapers, magazines, radio, and TV) is one way to promote the dumbing down of America and of other commoners of the world. Constitutional republics, free thought, freedom of expression, and the spread of Christianity are the enemies of the New World Order and must be stopped by any means they believe are necessary.
…In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. [John 16:33]
And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. …And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. [Revelation 19:11, 19-20]
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. [Revelation 22:20]
