POLICE STATE - Travelers can go to jail if they do not turn over their passwords

Obey Your Masters in Government

(Tech Crunch)  -  A UK court has reaffirmed the power for state agents to use sweeping counterterrorism legislation to require travelers hand over the passwords for their digital devices for their contents to be searched at borders.
A London court today found Muhammad Rabbani guilty of willfully obstructing the police by failing to hand over device passwords and the PIN code for his smartphone after he had been detained at a UK airport.
Rabbani is international director of Cage, an advocacy organization for communities impacted by Western counterterrorism policies.
He says he had been returning from a business trip to the Middle East last year when he was detailed and questioned. He declined to provide his passwords because he said he wanted to protect sensitive information provided to Cage by a client who had been subjected to torture.

The Intercept has reported at some length on the case after the same counterterrorism legislation was used in 2013 to detain David Miranda, the partner of Intercept co-founder and investigative journalist Glenn Greenwald who had been in contact with NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. In that instance UK authorities seized journalistic material stored on a hard drive being carried through a UK airport by Miranda -- apparently conflating journalism and terrorism.
The law being used by UK authorities to force people to provide access keys to their digital devices is Schedule 7 of the Terrorism Act 2000 -- which is supposed to be used solely to determine whether a person is directly involved in the “commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism”.
Critics have accused authorities of overusing the power, and say it is discriminatory because it disproportionately affects Muslims who travel.
According to Rabbani he had already been detained at airports as many as 20 times under the same power. And had also previously been asked for his passwords -- and had not been arrested when he refused.
In this instance, after again refusing to reveal his passwords, he says he was handed a leaflet stating it is now compulsory to surrender passwords. He was then arrested, and, in May, charged with obstructing justice. A guilty verdict can result in up to three months in jail and/or a fine.

Germany Dies

Open Borders Gets 87% of the Vote
As usual the Controlled Media Machine
gets the story wrong.

  • The story is NOT that the anti-immigration Alternative for Germany (AfD) got 13% of the vote. The real story is 87% of the vote when to open borders parties eager to import Islam into Germany.
  • The so-called "Conservative" open borders Christian Democrat Union will have to embrace the Green Party to form a government.

(AFP) - The Alternative for Germany (AfD) on Sunday became the first hard-right, openly anti-immigration party to win dozens of seats in parliament since World War II, breaking a taboo despite mainstream politicians' calls to halt "the Nazis" in their tracks.

Exit polls credited the AfD with around 13 percent of the vote, making it the third biggest political force in Germany -- a stunning result for a party that was founded just four years ago.

"We will change this country," vowed Alexander Gauland, one of the party's top two candidates, pledging to "go after" Chancellor Angela Merkel's government.

It promised that it would make it a priority to launch a parliamentary probe against Merkel over her decision to let in more than one million asylum seekers since 2015.

35% Obamacare rate increase in California

And the GOP Does NOTHING

(Press Telegram)  -  Anthem Blue Cross is proposing a 35 percent rate increase for about 135,000 consumers who buy their own insurance in and outside the Covered California exchange. 

It’s the largest increase statewide and assumes that federal subsidies for copays and deductibles will continue to be paid. The second highest, also assuming the U.S. government will continue paying those subsidies, is 28.6 percent by Molina Healthcare.

The company said it stands by its California cost projections in light of growing market volatility. In documents filed with regulators, the company expressed concern that declining enrollment in the individual market would saddle it with a sicker group of policyholders.

Kurds stick with independence vote, 'never going back to Baghdad'

Freedom - What a Concept

(Reuters) - Iraq's Kurds will go ahead with a referendum on independence on Monday because their partnership with Baghdad has failed, Kurdistan Regional Government President Massoud Barzani said on Sunday, shrugging off international opposition to the vote.
In response, the Iraqi government asked the autonomous Kurdish region to hand over control of its international border posts, its international airports and called on foreign countries to stop importing Kurdish crude oil.
It asked "the neighboring countries and the countries of the world to deal exclusively with the federal government of Iraq in regards to entry posts and oil," according to a statement from Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi's office.
The United States and other Western powers have urged Kurdish authorities in the oil producing region to cancel the vote, arguing that it distracts from the fight against Islamic State.
Turkey and Iran have also kept up the pressure to stop the vote, with presidents Tayyip Erdogan and Hassan Rouhani speaking by phone and expressing concern that it will "bring chaos in the region", according to Erdogan's office.
Barzani, at a news conference at his headquarters near Erbil, dismissed the worries of Iraq's neighbors, committing to respect laws on international boundaries and not seek to redraw the region's borders.
"We will never go back to the failed partnership" with Baghdad, he said, adding Iraq had become a "theocratic, sectarian state" and not the democratic one that was supposed to be built after the 2003 overthrow of Saddam Hussein.
The vote, expected to result in a comfortable "yes" to independence, is not binding and is meant to give the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) a mandate to negotiate secession with Baghdad and the neighboring countries.
Barzani said Iraq's Kurds would seek talks with the Shi'ite-led central government to implement the expected "yes" outcome, even if they take two years or more, to settle land and oil sharing disputes ahead of independence.

"Syria" and "Iraq" Never Existed
To Start With

Most of the Middle East "nations" we are trying to "save" were artificially created out of thin air by European Imperialist powers before and after World War One.  Countries like Lebanon, Libya, Syria, Iraq and Kuwait had never existed before the West marched in to divide, conquer and set up their colonies.

ACLU, Planned Parenthood Demand Non-Doctors Be Allowed to Perform Abortions

“Safe, Legal, and Rare,” recite the liberal drones. They don’t want it to be rare, or they wouldn’t glamorize it and demand the government subsidize it. Turns out they don’t care much about it being safe either:

Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union sued the state of Maine Wednesday over a law requiring that only doctors perform abortion procedures, the two organizations said.
According to the Portland Press Herald, the law, which was enacted in 1979, says that only medical doctors may perform abortions, prohibiting other medical staff such as nurse practitioners and nurse-midwives from performing the procedure. The report noted that 41 other states have similar laws.
Planned Parenthood and the ACLU filed a federal lawsuit challenging the law as “unconstitutional.”

Funny, my copy of the Constitution doesn’t say anything about the fundamental right to kill babies without having sufficient medical qualifications.
Stand by for any number of Kermit Gosnell types, who won’t even need to get through medical school to turn a gruesome profit.
Next time a moonbat barks that abortion must be promoted or women will hurt themselves with coat hangers, remember this story. This isn’t about health, or someone would care about the aborted babies’ health. It is about moral degeneracy as a political creed.

Zuckerberg vows to "protect" us from free speech

The Government-Media Complex

  • Open borders Republicans and Democrats work together to destroy Trump and the Nationalist America First Movement.
  • Censorship is happening every day and Republicans are stone cold SILENT.  Fuck the corrupt GOP.

(Gateway Pundit)  -  On Thursday Facebook announced it would turn over 3,000 Russian-linked ads to GOP-led congressional committees

The left now claims 3,000 ads costing $100,000 that were neither favorable or unfavorable for either candidate flipped the 2016 election.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg even released a statement on the conspiracy.

President Trump went to Twitter to respond to the latest Democrat-media hoax.

President Trump is right again. A Harvard study found 77% of the media coverage of Trump before the election was negative.
The Media Research Center found 91% of the coverage of Trump in the weeks leading up to the election was “hostile” towards the Republican candidate.

City Demands Pro-Trump Signs Be Removed

Freedom of Speech Banned
on Private Property

(NECN)  -  A Rockland, Maine, woman says she would rather go to jail than take down her pro-Donald Trump signs.

Susan Reitman has hung two banners on her front gate: One that says "I love Trump" and another that says "He Won, Get over it."

She received a notice from the city’s code enforcement office a few days ago, asking her to take them down.

"I was shocked," she said. "This is my freedom of speech. People have a right to voice their opinion."

Assistant Code Officer Bill Butler said another Rockland resident complained about the signs' size. The city ordinance states residential signs can be no larger than 2 square feet.

Reitman’s signs are a little larger than 3 feet by 2 feet.

"They’re well over the limit," Butler said.

He said residents need to apply for permits to display signs like that. They are able to follow an appeals process if their permits are denied.

She has until Friday to remove the banners, or else face a fine between $100-$1,000 a day.
