Congress Reportedly Slipping CISA Spy Bill Into Must-Pass Omnibus

Lauren McCauley, staff writer

Digital rights groups are sounding the alarm after sources reportedly confirmed on Monday that the controversial cyber-surveillance bill formerly known as CISA has been slipped into the "must-pass" omnibus spending bill that Congress is expected to vote on later this week.

The end of CD is near? How does Internet traffic sharing information between the government and corporations lead to that? Does CISA repeal the First Amendment?

If CISA doesn't do it, TPP, TTIP and TISA will.

If you have not yet voted on behalf of Bernie in this Democracy For America poll, today, December 15 is the last day and the polls close 11:59 pm EST or 8:59 PST. The DFA has committed itself to throw its weight behind any candidate who gets 60% of the vote. That is a high threshold, but doable, because the DFA is at the progressive end of the Democratic Party and even though Howard Dean is trying to promote HRC, the largely progressive members may not be duped by that.

Why is that important?** The DFA is a large progressive organization and if it supports Bernie, then this may convince some of the unions that Bernie has a real chance despite his black out in the corporate media and they may throw their weight behind him as well.
So if you have note voted yet, please go to: http://2016.democracyforamerica.com/?akid=7060.270485.Ea0z0_&rd=1&selected=berniesanders&t=3 and cast your for Bernie vote now!

Thanks for the link! I agree that the bill is a bad one, but I don't see it as the end of CD. Every corporation wants to privatize its profits and socialize its risk and liabilities. The main idea behind this bill seems to be consistent with that age-old position; they don't want to be held liable when they share private info, especially when they fail to properly encrypt it.
