Congress votes to repeal online privacy laws Photo by portal gda Most Americans don't have a choice about their Internet provider, which has a monopoly in their neighborhood.

Now, if President Trump signs a bill passed by both house of Congress, that option to deny permission will disappear. Laura Moy is deputy director of the Center of Privacy and Technology at Georgetown University's Law Center.
The Trump agenda: where's the beef? President Trump says big things are happening. After celebrating a House bill on health care, he doesn’t yet have Senate agreement. With James Comey’s public testimony scheduled tomorrow, the President today tweeted his selection of a new FBI Director. Is the Chief Executive all style and no substance? Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.

And again today, President Trump has tweeted criticism of the Mayor of London. Later, a double murder in Portland, Oregon has revealed the ugly past of a supposedly “progressive” city. One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?
