DOJ Claims It Can Read Your E-mail without a Warrant During the debate in the House of Representatives over cyber-security, the White House issued veto threat over CISPA due to Internet privacy concerns. Despite that strong stance on a controversial piece of legislation, there have been a number of news stories recently showing various government agencies willingness to ignore constitutional protections to gain access to e-mail and other forms of electronic communication and files. In fact, it’s the official policy of President Barack Obama’s Department of Justice (DOJ) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) that agents do not need a warrant when they want to gain access to e-mail and Facebook accounts :
A co-author of the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act says the hacktivist group Anonymous threatened him and others members of Congress on account of their support of CISPA. The cybersecurity act known as CISPA overwhelmingly passed in the United States House of Representatives earlier this month only to ultimately once again stall in the Senate. Citing the same privacy concerns brought up by opponents outside of Washington, lawmakers in the Senate now say they are unlikely to consider the bill, suggesting that for the second time in as many years CISPA will fail to find its way out of Congress.

CISPA | proparanoid i 11 Votes A simple solution: establish a Web Walker, your own Internet emulation to totally bypass the existing system — and its snoops The FBI, CIA, DIA, DHS, NSA, and dozens of other agencies including the Federal Reserve spy on internet users, and it is going to get much worse, SOON — perhaps to include martial law and suspension of the Constitution in the major next terrorism wave. For example, CISPA and other legislation continues to threaten to remake the Internet into a completely transparent spying mechanism, or worse, it seems logical to expect government to shut these systems down altogether in a Martial Law or other declared emergency, or if there is a 99% Occupy on Steroids event, or worse . Since the attacks of Sept. 11, the government has created more than 260 new Agencies , the bulk of which are geared up for or in support of spying on you and me, what we do, say, and think .

5 Things to Look for in CISPA's Replacement Takeaway: CISPA failed in the Senate, but that doesn't mean it's dead; its next incarnation is likely to include many of the same issues. The emergence of the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) has been an ongoing saga about how the American government handles issues surrounding personal privacy and security on the Internet. After passing the House last year, CISPA stalled in the Senate this April.
LETTER — Vote for CISPA is a vote against liberty I was deeply disappointed recently by U.S. Rep. Bill Huizinga’s support of CISPA, the cyber-security act. I voted for Congressman Huizinga because I believed that he would be vigilant in protecting the civil liberties of his constituents. I was wrong! CISPA was designed to give the federal government the ability to work with private companies in order to fight hackers in and outside of the United States.

Why CISPA Could Actually Lead To More Hacking Attacks One thing we've talked about for years is that lawmakers are notoriously bad at thinking through the unintended consequences of legislation they put forth. They seem to think that whatever they set the law to be will work perfectly, and that there won't be any other consequences. This is one reason why we're so wary of simple "fixes" even when the idea or purpose sound good up front. "Protecting artists" sounds good... unless it destroys the kinds of services artists need.
Cyber threats are real and have affected major corporations. China-based hackers have even tapped into personal information from journalists at the New York Times, Washington Post and Wall Street Journal. Action needs to be taken to prevent future cyber attacks. That’s what the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act set out to achieve. CISPA Continues To Draw Opposition

Panetta Warns of Dire Threat of Cyberattack on U.S. In a speech at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum in New York, Mr. Panetta painted a dire picture of how such an attack on the United States might unfold. He said he was reacting to increasing aggressiveness and technological advances by the nation’s adversaries, which officials identified as China, Russia, Iran and militant groups. “An aggressor nation or extremist group could use these kinds of cyber tools to gain control of critical switches,” Mr. Panetta said. “They could derail passenger trains, or even more dangerous, derail passenger trains loaded with lethal chemicals.
After defeat of Senate cybersecurity bill, Obama weighs executive-order option - The Hill's Hillicon Valley Senate Republicans recently blocked cybersecurity legislation, but the issue might not be dead after all. The White House hasn't ruled out issuing an executive order to strengthen the nation's defenses against cyberattacks if Congress refuses to act. “In the wake of Congressional inaction and Republican stall tactics, unfortunately, we will continue to be hamstrung by outdated and inadequate statutory authorities that the legislation would have fixed," White House press secretary Jay Carney said in an email. "Moving forward, the President is determined to do absolutely everything we can to better protect our nation against today’s cyber threats and we will do that," Carney said. The White House has emphasized that better protecting vital computer systems is a top priority. The administration proposed its own legislation package in 2011, sent officials to testify at 17 congressional hearings and presented more than 100 briefings on the issue.

Business fuels death of cyber bill Over the last three years savvy business interests managed to water down a bill to beef up America's cybersecurity - and then Thursday it drowned. Key industries played one chamber against the other and one party against the other, knowing precisely where to toss their monkey wrenches. What they did not do: race to self-regulate to appease Congress the way industries in the crosshairs usually do -- a sign that they believed they'd win in the end.
The Lede : After more than two years of work, Sen. Joe Lieberman's (I-Conn.) Cybersecurity Act suffered an apparently fatal blow in the Senate on Thursday when the bill's supporters were unable to muster the votes needed to overcome a Republican filibuster. The final vote was 52-46, but 60 votes were needed to move the legislation forward. The Senate later voted to break for its August recess.

President Obama stressed the need for the Senate to pass "comprehensive cybersecurity legislation" in an op-ed published hours after a revised cybersecurity bill was introduced in the Senate. "We need to make it easier for the government to share threat information so critical-infrastructure companies are better prepared," wrote Obama in the Wall Street Journal on Thursday. "We need to make it easier for these companies—with reasonable liability protection—to share data and information with government when they're attacked.
