Groups Decry Trump Plan to Demand Social Media Passwords at US Border

Raising concern about the violations of privacy occurring in the name of U.S. border security, a coalition of consumer rights groups on Tuesday launched a new campaign opposing the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) so-called "extreme vetting" practice that requires travelers to reveal their social media passwords.

"Even if you support 'extreme vetting,' password for entry is an extremely bad idea that sacrifices privacy and digital security for political posturing and 'security theater,'" said Nathan White, senior legislative director at Access Now, one of the 29 organizations launching the 'Fly Don't Spy' campaign. 

"We're launching this campaign today to make it clear to Secretary John Kelly that we will not tolerate discrimination or a reckless disregard for privacy and cybersecurity," White added, inviting others to include their name on a petition directed at the DHS chief.....

Trump’s Fake War on the Fake News

The president puts on a big show of assaulting his “opposition” in the news media. But inside the White House, it’s a different story.

Who is out of touch with the public?

67% Dems

62% Reps

58% Trump

I know that we are 18 months out of the 2018 elections, the dems have wasted 1/4 there time of fighting bernie rather doing some reforming.  Trump is more in touch with the average american, hell even Reps are even more in touch the public.  How can the Dems the party of "the people" be out touch of the with their average voter?  People seem to be aware that the Dem message only message is trump is "bad man" and don't worry the russians did it.

Russia did it and bad man messaging is falling flat, you need provide some goodies for the gerenal public. The problem is the Dems don't want to drop their base of money support from the corporatist sector.  People are seeing through the spinning of the Dem party.

Interesting cherrypicking from the article. Omitted of course was the following:

A pair of polls released Sunday showed President Donald Trump approaching his 100th day in office with the lowest level of support any modern president.

Forty-two percent of people in an ABC/Washington Post poll said they approved of Trump's performance so far, while 53% said they disapproved. An NBC/Wall Street Journal poll had 40% of respondents saying they approved of Trump and 54% saying they disapproved.

The comments in the previous post sound like something from the Trump playbook. Hum.........

Did Donald Trump Commission Russia’s Hack of the US Election Himself?

 

Sources linked to the intelligence community say that Donald Trump accepted laundered Russian money which, through shell companies, supported Russian hackers as they attacked America – and then supported Wikileaks and Julian Assange as he published the results of those hacks.

Donald Trump’s link to the hack on the US election appears to be far more direct than anybody thought – with Russian money, washed into his campaign, paying for Russian hackers who attacked both state voter registration databases and the DNC. Trump also appears to have had direct personal knowledge of the propaganda botnet used by Russia.
