CISPA Amendment Allows DHS to Intercept Tax Returns

•, Paul Joseph Watson

An amendment introduced to the controversial CISPA bill by perennial big government advocate Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee would empower the Department of Homeland Security to intercept online IRS tax returns and any other Internet traffic deemed to transit networks owned by the federal government or operated on its behalf.

“Jackson Lee’s amendment (PDF) is broad enough to sweep in government contractors and university networks such as Internet2 and CENIC, said a telecommunications attorney who did not want to be identified because of client sensitivity. It also appears to cover open Wi-Fi networks run by federal agencies and networks in government-provided housing,” reports CNet’s Declan McCullagh.

Intercept? Robert Lee needs to buy a dictionary. I believe the correct word would be, steal or rob. These bastards won't be happy until they get it all, but it ain't gonna happen. The criminals of the world are soon to answer the call.
