(NaturalNews) The powers that be sure seem to be pulling out all the stops in their attempt to win passage of the notorious Stop Online Privacy Act, or SOPA, which – if it ever makes it into law – is liable to force the closure of some of the Web’s most popular sites, including NaturalNews.

The latest outrage comes at the hands of former U.S. Sen. Christopher Dodd, D-Conn., who is the current president of the Motion Picture Association of America. A petition posted on the White House’s “We the People” Web site – one that you should sign if you support Internet freedom – calls for an investigation of Dodd for “blatant bribery,” after he suggested in a Fox News interview recently that Hollywood support for President Obama’s reelection could dry up because of his opposition to the legislation.

Alex takes on the full spectrum of attacks facing society. From new wars, a domestic clampdown, the on-going economic crisis and the bombardment of food, water and environment with dangerous chemical compounds, humanity is under attack.

Alex also talks about a proposed New Jersey ban on ammunition, a de facto circumvention of the Bill of Rights’ guarantee to the right to bear arms. The Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) culture of lying is also in focus, with the recent release of Infowars’ viral video TSA: The Greatest Liars on Earth.

In other news, police fire tear gas and rubber bullets on Occupy Oakland protesters while the former Federal Reserve boss Herman Cain seeks to deliver his Tea Party supporters to the Newt Gingrich presidential campaign. The ACTA bill, like the SOPA and PIPA acts, threaten the future of Internet freedom. This and more, along with your calls.

White House bypasses Senate to ink agreement that could allow Chinese companies to demand ISPs remove web content in US with no legal oversight

Months before the debate about Internet censorship raged as SOPA and PIPA dominated the concerns of web users, President Obama signed an international treaty that would allow companies in China or any other country in the world to demand ISPs remove web content in the US with no legal oversight whatsoever.

The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement was signed by Obama on October 1 2011, yet is currently the subject of a White House petition demanding Senators be forced to ratify the treaty. The White House has circumvented the necessity to have the treaty confirmed by lawmakers by presenting it an as “executive agreement,” although legal scholars have highlighted the dubious nature of this characterization.

The hacktivist group Anonymous attacked and took offline the Federal Trade Commission’s website yesterday in protest against the treaty, which was also the subject of demonstrations across major cities in Poland, a country set to sign the agreement today.

Poland’s support for the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement, or ACTA, has sparked days of Internet protests by groups who fear it could lead to online censorship. Now several sites plan to go dark in protest. ACTA shares some similarities with the hotly debated Stop Online Piracy Act in the U.S., which was shelved by lawmakers last week.

Several popular Polish Web sites are planning to go dark for an hour Tuesday evening to protest the government’s plan to sign an international copyright treaty.

Many of us breathed a sigh of relief when an overwhelming amount of Americans banned together and voiced their opposition to Congress over both the Stop Online Piracy Act, and Protect Intellectual Property Act.

Sites that dimmed the screen for a day or two have gone back to normal — Facebook users have swapped their anti-SOPA images for their previous profile pictures.

We may have even believed that the postponement of the vote originally scheduled for January 24th was some sort of white flag of capitulation. But that is certainly not the MO of most lawmakers.
