Will There Be An Attack on Flat Earth Sites, Too?
Just recently, the U.S. government passed a bill that is like “The Ministry of Truth” in George Orwell’s book, 1984. It seems like the U.S. government wants all truth to be covered up. The bill that was signed is titled: Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017
Control on our information has already been in place. In the UK, for example, if you go to a library, they have a number of alternative news sites that are block. So, what the U.S. government is doing is making it a federal law of blocking certain sites AND in prosecuting people who put them up.
While we wait to see if and when the Senate will pass (and president will sign) Bill “H.R. 6393, Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017“, which was passed by the House at the end of November with an overwhelming majority and which seeks to crack down on websites suspected of conducting Russian propaganda and calling for the US government to “counter active measures by Russia to exert covert influence … carried out in coordination with, or at the behest of, political leaders or the security services of the Russian Federation and the role of the Russian Federation has been hidden or not acknowledged publicly,” another, perhaps even more dangerous and limiting to civil rights and freedom of speech bill passed on December 8.
Recall that as we reported in early June, “a bill to implement the U.S.’ very own de facto Ministry of Truth has been quietly introduced in Congress. As with any legislation attempting to dodge the public spotlight the Countering Foreign Propaganda and Disinformation Act of 2016 marks a further curtailment of press freedom and another avenue to stultify avenues of accurate information. Introduced by Congressmen Adam Kinzinger and Ted Lieu, H.R. 5181 seeks a “whole-government approach without the bureaucratic restrictions” to counter “foreign disinformation and manipulation,” which they believe threaten the world’s “security and stability.”
