President Obama to Control Internet?

Saturday, September 12th, 2009

From Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel

There’s troubling legislation in the U.S. Senate – a bill that would actually give President Obama emergency control of the Internet.  Not surprisingly, this move is triggering constitutional concerns.

Our Office of Government Affairs has determined that a revamped version of the ”Cybersecurity Act of 2009” has now emerged on Capitol Hill – months after an initial version authored by Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) was blasted in Silicon Valley as dangerous government intrusion.

Sean Hannity and I recently discussed the dangers of this measure on his radio show, and I invite you to listen to this important broadcast by clicking here.

We’ll keep you posted on this developing situation.  God bless you for standing strong alongside the ACLJ.

White House Attack on Free Speech

Thursday, August 6th, 2009


This is so important, I borrowed this from an email message:


I’m writing you with urgency.  There’s a very troubling development underway in Washington – a bold attack on your free speech rights directly from the Obama Administration.
A recent White House blog written by the White House Director of New Media states that ”there is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there” both on the web and floating around in chain emails. 
The blog continues, ”since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help.  If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to”
This is absurd!  In a nutshell, the White House is asking Americans to report on their neighbors, family, and friends who disagree with the President’s policy choices on health care.
This new White House reporting program strikes at the heart of the First Amendment and has no place in this important debate about health care.
Make no mistake, this outrageous attack on free speech is designed to stifle public debate about the health care issue – including growing concerns from Americans opposed to making abortion services mandatory health benefits.
Americans have the constitutional right to express their opinion and concerns about health care.  This wrong move by the Obama Administration is nothing more than a blatant attempt to intimidate those who have legitimate concerns about the health care plan.
