Except, I know, if Phil Elmore wrote it, it's either true, or it will help lead us to the truth!
The EAS and the Internet Kill Switch: It's for our security in the case of a national emergency.
Think about it: It's like instant rice! They can do it with just the flip of a couple switches. Who would need "Martial Law"? They wouldn't, but the affect would be the same if not more severe than men with guns on every street corner.
While pondering on the fact that "silencing" tactics could be focused on individuals or groups, I was just thinking... Guess what? It can be done, without even involving the government (directly)! Just as a great youtube.com channel was getting ahead, or maybe even gong viral with over 4 million total views, the channel was taken down. Yep.
Silencing the people is tantamount to martial law. It can happen, and it will happen. I thought I was just a small potato. Who would need to silence me?
As Phil concludes, "It also leaves us powerless." I'm just sayin'...

Obama's power to shut you up
By Phil Elmore

You know that President Obama wants the power to switch off the Internet should he find it necessary to silence the American people. You know that President Obama wants his face before your children's eyes, and yours, at every hour of the day. You know that President Obama is an arrogant, brittle, would-be totalitarian who cannot abide criticism and who believes he and his liberal ilk are better capable than you to run your life.
What you don't know is that you've already lost.
With perhaps less press than was warranted by such a move, Obama's federal government announced some time ago a nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS). It happened yesterday afternoon, at a time guaranteed to get your attention. A test of this type could easily occur in the very early morning, when few are likely to notice. This test, by contrast, was prominent and unmistakable. It was the first test of its kind ever conducted.
At 2 p.m. EST yesterday, an AM radio sitting next to a television equipped with satellite "cable" produced, in less than perfect synchronization, the EAS test on many (but not all) of the channels available. Some stations were not affected at all; others dutifully produced a test message. At least one channel appeared to carry the test for longer than the others. The effect, overall, was underwhelming.
"A more effective and functional EAS requires continual testing to identify necessary improvements so that all levels of the system can better serve our communities and deliver critical information that will save lives and property," explains FEMA's website. "… EAS Participants include all broadcasters, satellite and digital radio and television, cable television and wireline video providers who ensure the system is at a constant state of readiness."
