The Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) of 2017…


Date: September 18, 2017

01) Wiretapping Sex Workers, Punishing Pre-Crime, and National Strategy to Stop Sex-Buyers Approved by Senate

“Introduced by Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, the bill (S.1312) gives the attorney general power to file a civil suit against anyone suspected of committing or planning to commit “any action that constitutes or will constitute” a violation of various federal statutes. If a court agrees, the person or entity would have to stop whatever activity allegedly contributed to a current or future crime.

This is power above that of normal police and criminal law proceedings. It could allow the feds to preemptively shut down websites, search engines, social apps, browsers, encryption services, or brick-and-mortar businesses because criminals (broadly defined) might communicate there.

But the bills’ upsides are few, squeezed as they are between the grotesque bureaucracy building and impositions on civil liberties.”

    Thank you for the heads-up. I hadn’t heard of this as I was so busy trying to fight other bad bills that have already become laws.

    Thought Crimes are official in the internment camp of the U.S.A. at last. It is so god to finally see them being more open and honest about the absolute control they desire.

      They’re not even trying to hide it, anymore…And the establishment politicians are two sides of the same coin…They just push towards these ends, through different methods.

      …Which gives many the false sense, that “we’ve changed something”, when we’ve gotten sick of the dominant party and we vote them out.
