Congress repealed FCC privacy rules for the internet

6 Comments

It’s already begun. Just days after Congress voted to kill Internet privacy, Verizon has announced plans to install spyware on every Android phone on their network [1][2].

Protecting and encrypting your online life is more urgent than ever before.

Lawmakers who have taken hundreds of thousands of dollars from Big Cable companies [3] used a Congressional rule that gave them a small window to repeal the FCC privacy rules, which would have protected Internet users from some of the creepiest things their Internet service providers (ISPs) can do. But Congress just let ISPs like Verizon and Comcast in on:

  • Your health history
  • Your financial status & how much money you make
  • Where you go
  • Your political and religious views
  • What products you buy, and so much more

Apathy is no longer an option.

The time to start securing your most private information online is right now.

Our easy, 6-step guide, #GetSafe, shows you how.

Congress voting to kill Internet privacy is bad– but there are still really meaningful things that you can do to increase your privacy, and if you’re not doing them, you’re leaving yourself completely vulnerable.

Through #GetSafe, we’ll walk you through some basic steps that will dramatically increase the safety of the personal information stored on your phone and computer. It’s quick, you don’t need to be tech savvy, and it’s more important now than ever before.

Federal Bill to Ban Lethal Wildlife Poisons Introduced after kids exposed & three dogs killed by M-44 “Cyanide Bombs”

one of their favorite spots, behind
Canyon’s back yard, where he
accidentally triggered an M-44
“cyanide bomb” on March 16, 2017.
It killed his dog in front of him.

March 30, 2017 – This month three dogs were killed by M-44 “cyanide bombs” in Wyoming and Idaho. In both cases children were present and put at grave risk of poisoning. This is beyond unacceptable.

M-44s are indiscriminate sodium cyanide ejectors set by USDA Wildlife Services agents and local wildlife agencies for “predator control.” Details | Diagram There is no justifiable excuse for the use of M-44s. It is insane to set poison traps in the great outdoors.

We’ve been pressuring for an M-44 ban since 1990, collaborating with Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Oreg.). We are thrilled to announce that on March 30 Rep. DeFazio introduced the legislation we’ve been working on in Congress. The bill is called H.R. 1817, “The Chemical Poisons Reduction Act of 2017.” It would ban both lethal M-44 sodium cyanide devices and Compound 1080, which are used unnecessarily by government wildlife agents for predator control.

What we need now is your help to get this legislation passed into law. This is a nonpartisan, public safety issue, and there honestly are no valid arguments against banning wildlife poisons. Learn how to help

Background on March M-44 events

Early in March 2017 we began working with a family in Wyoming who went out for a beautiful pre-spring walk on the prairie–one they’d taken many times before–and lost two dogs in horrifying circumstances. More

CaLExit 2

Lo & behold, of all things, Nigel Farge from Great Britain and Aaron Banks who spearheaded the Brexit movement, to where the UK left the European Union were just in California raising a million dollars for the sole purpose of splitting the State of California in two by pushing for a referendum which would be placed on the ballot in 2018.

What is interesting though about this report is that the split is referred to an East/West California event vs. a North/South split.  Members of the State of Jefferson were not contacted, to my knowledge, all the while a new movement, CalExit 2, is now  going full speed ahead.

Where the CalExit2 differs markedly from the State of Jefferson’s proposal is with the ceding of all of the western coastal counties staying as California, while the inclusion of the entire eastern part of the state along with Orange and San Diego counties would then be become the new 51st state.  Now, that’s a new twist.

In the meantime, the State of Jefferson has money, attorneys and selected northern counties that are working on suing the State of California for a lack of representation, which will then, in the end, make the demand in a court of law that the State of Jefferson becomes the 51st State.

Anyway, as a person cuts it, “we the people” who are in the more forested and agricultural regions of the north, must split from the Great Late State of California because these counties in Northern California have suffered long enough under the tyrannical rule of Sacramento’s far socialist left which has caused a plague of poverty in the rural areas through a maze of mandates and regulations that has left numerous counties either bankrupt or in the hole while forcing millions of dollars to be borrowed by these governments in order to stay afloat.  And who’s paying for the interest?  The taxpayers through higher taxes. 

Hello!  Thus, here lies the reason why a split from the State of California is urgently needed but not only because of the financial burdens placed upon the northern sector, but also because of the lost freedoms and liberties that have transpired over decades of a socialist movement that is intent of the redistribution of the wealth which has left the middle class in dire straits through the loss of jobs as well as over taxation that has supported the great late Capitol of Sacramento.
