President Donald J. Trump Signs H.R. 1865 into Law – Law and Order are being restored as President Trump signs Executive Orders to protect the lives and dignity of the American people, most specifically women and children who have become victims of sex and trafficking crimes.

President Trump signs H.R. 1865, “The Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act of 2017,” which makes it a Federal crime to own, manage, or operate a website with the intent to promote or facilitate prostitution.

The purpose behind this law is to make it easier for state prosecutors and sex-trafficking victims to sue social media networks, advertisers and others that kept exploitative material on their platforms, although victims would be required to show websites knowingly facilitated sex trafficking.
Law makers sharpen their scrutiny on technology companies, which have largely omitted regulation, for their use of privacy protections and consumer data. Mark Zuckerberg, the chief executive of Facebook Inc, appeared in D.C. this past week with his entourage of security to testify before lawmakers.

Passed House amended (02/27/2018)

Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act of 2017
(Sec. 2) This bill expresses the sense of Congress that section 230 of the Communications Act of 1934 was not intended to provide legal protection to websites that unlawfully promote and facilitate prostitution and websites that facilitate traffickers in advertising the sale of unlawful sex acts with sex trafficking victims. Section 230 limits the legal liability of interactive computer service providers or users for content they publish that was created by others.
(Sec. 3) The bill amends the federal criminal code to add a new section that imposes penalties—a fine, a prison term of up to 10 years, or both—on a person who, using a facility or means of interstate or foreign commerce, owns, manages, or operates an interactive computer service (or attempts or conspires to do so) to promote or facilitate the prostitution of another person.
Additionally, it establishes enhanced penalties—a fine, a prison term of up to 25 years, or both—for a person who commits the offense in one of the following aggravating circumstances: (1) promotes or facilitates the prostitution of five or more persons, or (2) acts with reckless disregard that such conduct contributes to sex trafficking.
A person injured by an aggravated offense may recover damages and attorneys’ fees in a federal civil action.
A court must order mandatory restitution, in addition to other criminal or civil penalties, for an aggravated offense in which a person acts with reckless disregard that such conduct contributes to sex trafficking.
A defendant may assert, as an affirmative defense, that the promotion or facilitation of prostitution is legal in the jurisdiction where it was targeted.
(Sec. 4) The bill amends the Communications Act of 1934 to declare that section 230 does not limit: (1) a federal civil claim for conduct that constitutes sex trafficking, (2) a federal criminal charge for conduct that constitutes sex trafficking, or (3) a state criminal charge for conduct that promotes or facilitates prostitution in violation of this bill.
The amendments apply regardless of whether alleged conduct occurs before, on, or after this bill’s enactment.
(Sec. 5) The bill amends the federal criminal code to define a phrase related to the prohibition on sex trafficking. Currently, it a crime to knowingly benefit from participation in a venture that engages in sex trafficking. This bill defines “participation in a venture” to mean knowingly assisting, supporting, or facilitating a sex trafficking violation.
(Sec. 6) A state may file a federal civil action to enforce federal sex trafficking violations.
(Sec. 7) This section states that this bill does not limit federal or state civil actions or criminal prosecutions that are not preempted by section 230 of the Communications Act of 1934.
(Sec. 8) The Government Accountability Office must report to Congress on information related to damages and mandatory restitution for aggravated offenses under this bill.

Some technology companies fear the bill could signal more efforts to tighten regulation on the industry. Silicon Valley has opposed efforts to rewrite the Communications Decency Act, protecting companies from liability for content posted by their users over a twenty year growth span.
The Bill, nicknamed “FOSTA” for it’s title, “Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act,” goes into effect immediately, but it’s impact was already being seen around the internet as sites shut down sex related areas and stopped accepting sex related advertising.
The government also shut down Backpage’s classified ad websites around the world and moved to seize houses and bank accounts around the U.S. The signing of this Bill comes just days after seven executives for Backpage.com were arrested on a 93-count indictment that alleges the website facilitated prostitution and laundered tens of millions of dollars in profits, and that teenaged girls were sold for sex on the site. Some of those girls were killed.
Federal indictment of Backpage officials unsealed Monday described one girl who was prostituted on Backpage from ages 14 to 19, saying she was raped and tortured to perform sex acts at gunpoint. Other horror stories emerged from websites of young girls trafficked for months and even years, created a mounting tide of frustration that the websites couldn’t be forced to stop hosting the ads and that the victims couldn’t sue the sites for damages.
Critics still feel the new law creates too much opportunity for lawsuits against websites for content they didn’t post and didn’t know about. Emma Llansó of the Center for Democracy & Technology said Craigslist has already shut down its personals, missed connections and dating sections, many of which have long had innocent intents. In those sections, Craigslist posted a note which reads, “US Congress just passed HR 1865, ‘FOSTA,’, seeking to subject websites to criminal and civil liability when third parties (users) misuse online personals unlawfully.

Craigslist, Reddit prep for legal woes from FOSTA sex-trafficking bill

A number of websites, including Craigslist, began shutting down sections that might be construed as sex related after the bill passed the Senate last month. Civil liberties advocates attacked the bill as too broad, creating new liability for websites that had previously been protected by the Communications Decency Act for content posted by third parties.
Any tool or service can be misused. We can’t take such risk without jeopardizing all our other services, so we are regretfully taking Craigslist personals offline. Hopefully we can bring them back some day.”
Craigslist isn’t the only website closing departments. Reddit jumped on the bandwagon as well, closing Escorts, SugarDaddy, Hookers, Male Escorts, and many other boards in response to the new bill. The site also updated its content policy to ban transactions for “certain goods and services.” These include guns, drugs, stolen items, personal information, falsified official documents or currency, and paid services involving sex.
US Congress just passed HR 1865, “FOSTA”, seeking to subject websites to criminal and civil liability when third parties (users) misuse online personals unlawfully.
Any tool or service can be misused. We can’t take such risk without jeopardizing all our other services, so we are regretfully taking craigslist personals offline. Hopefully we can bring them back some day.
To the millions of spouses, partners, and couples who met through craigslist, we wish you every happiness!

Trump makes a statement before signing H.R. 1865, the “Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act of 2017” at The White House on April 11, 2018 in Washington, DC. With Trump are victims and family members of victims of online sex trafficking and members of Congress who helped pass the bill.

From Whence Comes the Validity of Our Law?

From Whence Comes the Validity of Our Law?

Laws that do not meet Constitutional guidelines are prima facia invalid. A decision rendered in Norton vs. Shelby County 118 US 425, p 442 states: “An unconstitutional act is not law; it confers no rights; it imposes no duties; affords no protection; it creates no office; it is in legal contemplation, as inoperative as though it had never been passed.” That ruling stands as the basis for nullification and non-compliance to government-imposed mandates that violate…

Biden’s Lost Words: “Leave no man behind”

Joe Biden, President of the United States of America, once known as the greatest country in the world (before January 2021), surrendered utterly and completely to the Taliban terrorists with barely a murmur, making the United States the world’s newest state sponsor of global terrorism. His decision to ignore our time-honored pledge ‘to leave no man behind’ resulted in…

Vaccine Pharmacovigilance and Failure of Early Warning Systems to Limit Death and Disability

The public has been much more responsive to this system than the vaccine manufacturers (Pfizer, BioNTech, Moderna, and JNJ), the program sponsors (FDA/CDC), and the media. Collectively these “vaccine stakeholders” have largely ignored the astronomical number of deaths, hospitalizations, urgent care visits, and permanent disability occurring after COVID-19 vaccination…

The Second Amendment Insures Peace Through Strength

The final bulwark against this genocide, now coming against Constitutional Americans, those who believe in liberty over tyranny⏤is the Second Amendment. The Second Amendment brings peace through strength, love through strength. The Second Amendment is a message of love because it is a message of life. Put simply, a way to stay alive in the face of Democrat-run genocide…

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough, #5

Vaccines are coming soon for children under 12. This is a big problem. How should I prove to my ex that my kid does not need a vax? – Can Dr. McCullough please explain the argument against everyone needing to be vaxxed for herd immunity to COVID? – How can 96% of all US doctors be covid vaccinated? Makes me feel like being unvaccinated is a bad choice. Are these stats correct?

Here’s Why the Biden Coup Tactics Will Soon Escalate

Here’s Why the Biden Coup Tactics Will Soon Escalate

They will recruit the CCP, Iran, the Taliban, the illegal immigrants to do their dirty work, just as they did with BLM and Antifa. The Leftist tour de force will attempt to exploit every imaginable tactic they can harness to conquer our republic. But they can never take our souls without our permission. Every unharnessed soul is a threat to Communism…

Charter of Umar – Pact of Umar

Charter of Umar – Pact of Umar

Historians are NOT unanimous as to which Umar this Charter / Pact or Covenant is actually attributed. In the final analysis, it is irrelevant to whom it should be attributed since the Conquering Muhammadan Muslims implemented it and have been doing so for the last 1400 years and continue to do so in the 21st century, in all Sharia-compliant Muslim states…

Government Avoids Shutdown…For Now

Government Avoids Shutdown…For Now

Failing to raise the debt ceiling would mean the government would default and would not be able to pay its bills on time. Essentially, we are bankrupt, and the people are the debtors in possession. The far-left sector of our government is trying to raise the United States debt ceiling so they can push through their 3.5 trillion’ Infrastructure bill.’ Here are some highlights or lowlights…

Why Socialist Democrats and the Intelligentsia Hate Free Markets

Why Socialist Democrats and the Intelligentsia Hate Free Markets

The more government has taken, the more growth has slowed, and the more growth slows, the more progressives blame free markets for the slowdown, telling us that the problem is not that we give so much of everything we make to government, but that we do not yet give enough. The fact that their policies are failing today does not faze the liberal: as always, the solution to government failure is more government…

Might the Vaccines Be Trump’s Achilles Heel for 2024

Might the Vaccines Be Trump’s Achilles Heel for 2024

While President Trump made some very controversial, later proven correct, calls early on — such as the banning of travel from China — other decisions, especially surrounding the CCP virus, are perplexing given what the astute public now knows. Trump’s blind and enduring support of Anthony Fauci, Dr. Birx, the WHO, the CDC, the FDA, the NIH, the NIAID, and many other COVID “experts” is mind-boggling…

What Happened to Men?

What Happened to Men?

The Communists need a weak class of people to go around policing the non-believers. Just like ANTIFA and BLM being their street armies, these board-shorts-wearing men are dutifully doing their bidding in big-box stores all over the country. It’s time to bring back masculinity. Let’s stop listening to the anti-men rhetoric that has been made mainstream by fringe members of the communist-left…

Covid is Political Power, Not Medicine

Covid is Political Power, Not Medicine

Effective medicines for treating Covid like Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine are now restricted by state and county boards of health. Drug stores, under pressure from these government agencies, now often refuse to fill doctor’s prescriptions for these medicines. The government is now diagnosing and prescribing for you, not your doctor. What to Do?
