REVEALED: Obama’s Secret Plan to SHUT DOWN Your Cellphone Service… Help Spread the Word
If and when the proverbial stuff ever hits the fan, Americans will undoubtedly be frantically using their phones to contact loved ones or emergency services.
However, doing so may be impossible, thanks in large part to a secret plan by the Obama administration to cut off all cellphone service in some or all areas, for any or no reason at all, according to WND.
The existence of the plan recently came to light due to the hard work of the Electronic Privacy Information Center, which had filed documents with the Supreme Court asking the court to force the administration to reveal all of the details of the plan.
EPIC has been asking the federal government for the details for some time, but had only received a heavily redacted document from the Department of Homeland Security that doesn’t disclose much.
EPIC is now asking the court to compel transparency from the feds, citing the potential public safety risks that would come about if the cellular network was shut down.
It is worth noting that the plan has actually been put into action at least a couple of times previously, most notably in a section of the New York subway system a few years ago and during a protest at a San Francisco mass transit terminal in 2012.
The shutdown of cellphone service during the San Francisco protest, which came about after a BART officer shot and killed a homeless man, effectively prevented the protest from spiraling out of control by preventing anyone in the area, especially protest leaders, “from sending or receiving phone calls, messages, emergency notifications and other transmissions.”
It’s also worth noting that the Obama administration, through an executive order issued in 2012, has decided that DHS has the legal authority, according to EPIC, to “seize private facilities, when necessary, effectively shutting down or limiting civilian communications,” even though doing so would affect innocent, law-abiding individuals and could potentially cause more problems than it prevents.
Unfortunately, the White House has refused to reveal any of the details regarding the actual policies and protocols surrounding such actions, despite the public needing to know such things.
In its seven years in office, the Obama administration has earned the mistrust of the American people through its penchant for hiding its goals and activities from the media and the public — from plans for making virtual paramilitary units out of local police under federal control to suspicious purchases by the DHS. The cellphone operation uncovered by EPIC sounds like more of the same.
Please share this on Facebook and Twitter to help spread the word that Obama has a secret plan to shut off cellphone service for everyone in a given area at any time, for any reason, and he won’t say why or how.
