Internet Shut Down Due to Pandemic? Official Govt. Document With
Web bot Info mixed In

First Thank You Very Much Armin for providing these documents from the United States Government!

Linked is a 77 page from the United States Government about "What to do with the Internet in case of a Pandemic".

Well considering we now have a "National Emergency" over a H1N1 Benign Virus already declared by President Obama ( I am still bewildered over it - as there was No reason).

This document can now come in play. They had specified in it - only in an act of War or another such emergency could the Presidential Powers take over the Internet. btw: This document was created last month - after it was created then the National Emergency was declared.

I did not read Every Word of the 77 page document BUT I read enough of it to understand what they have planned! I will be inserting the KEY points of the planned internet control and what pages they are on so you can read them yourself in the document linked.

Before I insert them, I would like to revisit two things from earlier this year. (also this is all actually about the epidemic - facts - mixed with prediction - from the Web bot, besides my "little conspiracy thought")

One, Please remember Jay Rockerfeller earlier this year proclaimed "the number one hazard in the world is the Internet"! (Yeah, hazard for the PTB, because we spread truth- my conspiracy thought!). So, we know they don't like the internet because too many people become aware of truth through it! Just like I hope this site and we are all doing now!

Second, I would like to mention the Web bot prediction for the internet.
The Web bot has predicted the internet will be shut down and limited in the form that the ONLY way people will be able to go to one website or another is through IP addresses Only! When should this come into play? Think the beginning of next year - in other words start writing and noting IP addresses immediately of the sites you go to the most etc.

I have already set my computer up with the Mozilla Firefox internet, there is a special little add on you can do - that adds the internet IP address at the bottom of Every single internet page you go to. Thus, internet IP addresses can be compiled.
UPDATE 3:51PM ADD ON FOR IP Addresses for Firefox at this Link

Also I suggest people in forums/message boards, etc start a thread/message where people can add IP addresses for everyone else to see. In other words we all help each other out with the IP information.

Here is some information from the U.S. Govt Document linked HERE

On pages 25 and 26 is the following information

Providers identified one technically feasible alternative that has the potential to reduce Internet congestion during a pandemic, but raised concerns that it could violate customer service agreements and thus would require a directive from the government to implement. Although providers cannot identify users at the computer level to manage traffic from that point, two providers stated that if the residential Internet access network in a particular neighborhood was experiencing congestion, a provider could attempt to reduce congestion by reducing the amount of traffic that each user could send to and receive from his or her network. Such a reduction would require adjusting the configuration file within each customer’s modem to temporarily reduce the maximum transmission speed that that modem was capable of performing—for example, by reducing its incoming capability from 7 Mbps to 1 Mbps. However,

according to providers we spoke with, such reductions could violate the agreed-upon levels of services for which customers have paid. Therefore, under current agreements, two providers indicated they would need a directive from the government to take such actions.

Shutting down specific Internet sites would also reduce congestion, although many we spoke with expressed concerns about the feasibility of such an approach. Overall Internet congestion could be reduced if Web sites that accounted for significant amounts of traffic—such as those with video streamingwere shut down during a pandemic. According to one recently issued study, the number of adults who watch videos on video-sharing sites has nearly doubled since 2006, far outpacing the growth of many other Internet activities.22 However, most providers’ staff told us that blocking users from accessing such sites, while technically possible, would be very difficult and, in their view, would not address the congestion problem and would require a directive from the government.23 One provider indicated that such blocking would be difficult because determining which sites should be blocked would be a very subjective process. Additionally, this provider noted that technologically savvy site operators could change their Internet protocol addresses, allowing users to access the site regardless. Another provider told us that some of these large bandwidth sites stream critical news information. Furthermore, some state, local, and federal government offices and agencies, including DHS, currently use or have plans to increase their use of social media Web sites and to use video streaming as a means to communicate with the public. Shutting down such sites without affecting pertinent information would be a challenge for providers and could create more Internet congestion as users would repeatedly try to access these sites. According to one provider, two added complications are the potential liability resulting from lawsuits filed by businesses that lose revenue when their sites are shutdown or restricted and potential claims of anticompetitive practices, denial of free speech, or both. Some providers said that the operators of specific Internet sites could shut down their respective sites with less disruption and more effectively than Internet providers, and suggested that a better course of action would be for the government to work directly with the site operators.

pg 32 TO 33 reason for National Emergency?

Some observers have suggested that an authority granted to the President in the Communications Act of 1934 could conceivably be used to take actions to address Internet congestion during a pandemic.33 In their view, the President may have, under certain limited circumstances involving a state or threat of war, the power to authorize government control of the telecommunications systems and, if properly invoked and delegated, this might broadly provide authority for the government to require private sector entities to take actions intended to address congestion. However, according to FCC staff we spoke with, while the authority under the Act may grant the President powers over telecommunication systems during wartime, they did not know whether such powers could be exercised in a pandemic. However, until DHS, as the lead agency responsible for coordinating protection of telecommunications, including the Internet, takes action to work with other agencies to assess whether sufficient authorities exist to direct necessary actions by the private sector, the potential for a timely and effective federal response to congestion is reduced


Although its own study identified voluntary public reduction of Internet use as an effective means of reducing pandemic congestion, DHS has not begun steps to assess the feasibility and effectiveness of obtaining such public cooperation. According to the DHS study and to providers and others we spoke with, voluntary actions taken by the general public could have significant potential to reduce the surges in traffic loads that residential users may experience during a pandemic. For example, the general public could be asked to limit video streaming, gaming, and peer-to-peer and other bandwidth-intensive applications during daytime work hours. They could also be encouraged to use broadcast news sources in place of online news. A similar campaign developed by another agency—HHS—to publicize pandemic awareness strategies showed that such public education efforts can require months to prepare and cost millions of dollars to test and implement. For example, as part of creating various radio and television messages to provide information to the public about how to prepare for a pandemic, HHS conducted market research using various techniques, including focus groups, to gauge the public’s opinion about a pandemic. In 2005-2006, when they began this effort, HHS staff stated that it took the agency about 6 months to develop the public service announcements (PSA). In 2006-2007 HHS staff spent about 4 months planning and producing PSAs. The cost of running radio PSAs in 137 cities over an 11-month period in 2007 was about $1.5 million dollars.

Let me get this Straight THEY HAD A FOCUS GROUP TO GAUGE THE PUBLIC'S OPINION ABOUT A PANDEMIC IN 2005 AND 06!? What I think about that... it says A LOT about how the Government plans Ahead of time for things! There is a double meaning in that statement I just made Too!


  1. It's almost like this was planned years ago. So many puzzle pieces are coming together now.

  2. I haven't read through the whole thing yet either, but what I've gotten through so far seems to be aimed at pre-schoolers???? Who was this document meant for? Who did they expect would be reading it? It seems to me that it is created and worded in a way inconsistent with a document composed for the educated and intellectual members of our government who I am under the understanding that this document was created for!! I'll continue reading for now, but as it appears currently (and I'm only on page 7), I seriously wonder if this document was created in an attempt to "distract" us yet again from what they really have planned... just a thought.
