(NaturalNews) Some members of the 112th U.S. Congress are seething with anticipation over a new billed they have crafted that would give the government the power to shut down the internet in the event of a “cyberterrorist” event. Created by Sens. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.), Susan Collins (R-Maine), and Tom Carper (D-Del.), the “Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset” bill threatens not only free speech and the free flow of information and communication, but also access to independent health news sources like NaturalNews.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) banded several others in Congress to introduce a bill last month to pave the way for what many say will be the imminent reintroduction of the Kill Switch bill into Congress. And many advocates of free speech and privacy are decrying the efforts as a massive attempted takeover of humanity by the federal government.

“This (bill) is all about control, an attempt to control every aspect of our existence,” said Christopher Feudo, a cybersecurity expert and chairman of SecurityFusion Solutions, an internet security consulting firm. “I consider it an attack on our personal right of free speech. Look what recently occurred in Egypt.”

The new bill is reminiscent of the attempted FCC takeover of the internet several months ago (http://www.naturalnews.com/030647_W…). That initiative failed, but those in positions of power seem to have their eyes dead set on restricting the internet in any way they can, because it is the last remaining bastion of free speech not yet completely taken over by the Feds.

Proponents insist the bill is not a “Kill Switch” and that it will have specific checks in place to preserve “freedom,” but opponents are not buying it. Even without the bill, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has already begun randomly seizing the domains of websites for which it disapproves (http://www.naturalnews.com/030542_c…).

If you value free access to the internet, and to websites like NaturalNews, be sure to contact your Congressmen and urge them never to support the Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset legislation, should it be reintroduced in the near future.
