Ministers, governors, Congress, White House working on prison reform

By |

“Trump supports the First Step Act, a bipartisan prison reform bill which passed the House in May. It would provide $250 million over 5 years to beef up education, vocational training and rehabilitation programs within the federal prison system.

Inmates who participate in the programs would receive credits toward early release and would be expected to be better prepared for employment once they leave prison.

“We passed the First Step Act through the House, and we’re working with the Senate to pass that into law. And I think we’ll be able to do it. When we say “hire American,” we mean all Americans — every American, everybody,” Trump said at the meeting with ministers.”

Microsoft Threatens to Shut Down Gab After Anti-Semitic Posts by User

By |

Gab isn’t the only company suffering from Big Tech censorship. Freestartr, a free speech crowdfunding site, is still shut down after losing its payment processor for similar reasons. According to founder Charles Johnson, Wells Fargo is behind the shuttering of conservative sites like his because the bank uses the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “hate group” lists to discriminate against the people the SPLC tells them to. The SPLC’s lists have already gotten people shot. Wells Fargo has not responded to attempts to contact them.

Is Your T-Shirt a Lethal Weapon?

By |

“I wanted to use a visual aid in a speech I was preparing on cryptography, but I realized to do so would be a mistake. Because my audience might have included foreign citizens, showing the visual aid could have made me an unlicensed munitions exporter — subject to as much as $1,000,000 in fines and up to ten years in jail under United States law. This was not a fair gamble when the speech would have earned me only a free lunch.

The visual aid was a T-shirt.”
