On Thursday, Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp sent a letter to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to ask “why DHS was attempting to breach” the firewall protecting his computer infrastructure. The letter also drew attention to the fact that “under 18 U.S.C. 1030, attempting to gain access or exceeding authorized access to protected computer systems is illegal."

 

 

To say that Facebook has a spotty record where privacy and censorship are concerned would be an understatement. While the social media giant has — at times — resisted the surveillance apparatus of the NSA and other U.S. government, it has — on other occasions — gone out of its way to help build the culture of surveillance on which the surveillance state rests. Now, for the sake of gaining official access to China, Mark Zuckerberg’s company has developed tools to allow the Communist Chinese government unrestrained censorship of Facebook posts.

The address 33 Thomas Street in Lower Manhattan — less than a mile from the New York Stock Exchange — is a strange-looking structure (shown). The dark gray skyscraper has 29 floors above ground and three basement levels. It has exactly zero windows and is not illuminated at night. The building — known as the “Long Lines Building” — is owned by AT&T. It is also code-named TITANPOINTE and is a major hub of NSA surveillance, with equipment and whole portions of the building dedicated to that purpose.

The freedom to visit websites, communicate, and post to the Internet without the interference of government is a right people around the world should be able to take for granted. Unfortunately, for growing portions of the world’s population, that is not the case. In fact, the Freedom on the Net report by the online activist group Freedom House shows that “Internet freedom around the world declined in 2016 for the sixth consecutive year.”

With Obama having just relinquished U.S. control over key Internet architecture last month, it did not take long for the pro-censorship communist dictatorship in China to openly demand “global governance” of the World Wide Web. The mass-murdering Chinese regime, along with its totalitarian allies worldwide, has actually been pushing for global control of the Internet and a crackdown on online freedom for many years. But now, with Communist Chinese agents installed at the head of key United Nations agencies, and globalists in the West increasingly hostile to free speech, Beijing seems to think the time is right to strike.
