(NaturalNews) It is an ominous threat to civil liberties that has already been shot down twice. But this time, the so-called Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, or CISPA, could become law if the American people fail to stop it. Mother Jones reports that this "zombie bill" brainchild of California Senator Dianne Feinstein and Georgia Sen. Saxby Chambliss is back again, this time with a vengeance, as the federal occupying regime tightens the noose on the Fourth Amendment and American privacy.

As you may recall, the first introduction of CISPA back in 2012 sent shockwaves throughout the country and the world, sparking mass online protests that gained extensive media coverage. CISPA, of course, was spawned from the previous failures of SOPA and PIPA, two other attempted government censorship bills that were effectively killed by mass outrage.

But like any dedicated parasite, the federal occupying regime is determined to legitimize the illegal spying efforts it is already engaging in (http://www.naturalnews.com). And with the help of globalist lackeys and American traitors Sens. Feinstein and Chambliss, it hopes to finally bring CISPA to fruition.

"Now that the dust has settled a bit, NSA [National Security Agency] director Keith Alexander is publicly asking for the legislation to be re-introduced, and two senators confirmed that they are drafting a new Senate version," writes Dana Liebelson for Mother Jones about the situation.

New version of CISPA claims to be less invasive, but final version has yet to be drafted

Advocates of this latest CISPA incarnation claim the broad language contained in previous versions of the bill has been cleaned up to better protect public privacy. But since the definitive wording of the new CISPA has yet to be finalized, many feel as though a backroom deal might be hatched in the final hour to give the NSA access to all sorts of personally identifiable information.

"This sumnmer has confirmed that ay information that goes into the NSA will be shrouded by secrecy and there will be no oversight," says Michelle Richardson, a legislative counsel with the American Civil Liberties Union. "Since this is a domestic issue, the NSA is more likely to get involved... and companies haven't provided concrete examples that they even need this legislation, especially when it's this broad."

Feinstein reportedly told Mother Jones that the new version of the bill will have "tight limitations" on the type of information that can be shared with the federal government and that privacy advocates need not worry. But since the original CISPA and its predecessors were intentionally vague in their wording, not to mention crafted in secret, it is simply unreasonable to take anything Feinstein says seriously.

"It would have been complicated to pass a bill before the leak and now it's even harder," added Richardson, hopeful that CISPA will once again fail. "That being said, I think we need to keep a very careful eye on it to make sure a deal isn't struck in the Senate. Sometimes these things suddenly start moving."

Meanwhile, NSA's Alexander actually had the gall to defend his agency's illegal data collection and spying warfare against Americans at a recent meeting. As reported by The Washington Post, Alexander rehashed all the typical rhetoric about counterterrorism and national security in his tired defense of the government's shameless scrapping of the U.S. Constitution.
