    The end of the INTERNET!!

    March 9, 2012 by

    The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) died in Congress, but the Administration of President Barack Obama is showing it doesn't need the legitimacy of law in its effort to take over the world. Now, through the Department of Homeland Security and Department of Justice, any Internet domain is subject to seizure at any time.

    Case in point: The Canadian-owned online sports gaming site . was registered with the Vancouver-based DomainClip. It has no ties to the United States. Yet, Maryland State prosecutors were able to obtain a warrant ordering Verisign, the company that ultimately manages all the dot-com, dot-net and dot-org domain names in the world, to redirect the website to a warning page advising that it had been seized by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

    The U.S. government has a history of going after online gaming operations, whether they are located within the United States or offshore. But stepping into another country's jurisdiction steps it up a notch.

    Online gambling has nothing to do with Homeland Security. There are two reasons the Administration is doing this: Control of Internet content and money. Piracy is just the cover story the Administration uses.
