So could this possibly be what The U.S. Federal Government has in store for us?More or blocking information? now with Unified Data System Order,
Rob Belatucadros and I where starting to write and throw ideas together the other night during the website black-out , we both thought we might be a little paranoid or jumping the gun but it is starting to sound more realistic then ever?.
So now that I guess the SOPA/PIPA thing didn't pass or did it? The U.S. Government has just been approved for endless amounts of storage capacity. What is this to collect and save and potentially block everyone of Information/Data to keep the calm like they have in other Countries around the world, or use it to round up people?
After 9/11, three US federal law enforcement agencies planned a massive project to replace a mishmash of ageing and obsolete radios used by thousands of US federal agents. A decade and $US356 million later, the program has made “minimal progress” and the US Department of Homeland Security, one of the project’s key partners, wants little to do with it.
That’s all according to an audit by the US Justice Department’s inspector general, following interviews with officials from the FBI to DHS and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, among others. The DOJ’s investigators found the project — dubbed the Integrated Wireless Network — to be at “high risk for failure” because of shifting priorities, costly delays and frequent changes in leadership at top DOJ posts. Likewise, federal budget cuts could put the program on the chopping block.
The audit warns: “As a result, law enforcement and emergency personnel will continue to use inadequate, incompatible, and outdated equipment, resulting in slower operation response times and potentially jeopardising the lives of law enforcement and emergency personnel and the people they have sworn to protect.”
The project began in the late 1990s and saw increased attention following 9/11. The origin?

(NaturalNews) What began as a simple program to address safety and security issues at the 2010 Winter Olympics has become a massive online spying operation targeted at journalists and writers. The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS)'sMedia Monitoring Initiative(MMI) has been expanded to collect and track information from online forums, blogs, public websites, message boards, and social networking sites, as well as gather "personally identifiable information" (PII) on journalists and media writers.
You can view the DHS report by downloading it from the MMI section of the following page:http://www.dhs.gov/files/publications/gc_1284657535855.shtm
According to the DHS report, the MMI expansion includes collecting PII on news anchors, newscasters, on-scene reporters, both on camera and on the internet, and various other media personalities who "use traditional and / or social media in real time to keep their audience situationally aware and informed" -- so basically anyone, in other words.
It also includes collecting personal information on US and foreign government officials, US and foreign government spokespersons, as well as those from private sector companies, and practically any other individuals that make public statements or that provide "public updates" in any way shape or form.Learn more:
