With all the crazyass crap Trump and his henchmen do

on a daily basis, it's hard to keep track of it all, and that's the plan, according to Newt Gingrich, who ,like most Repubs fought Trump, until he gleefully grasped his coat tails.

How the Republican Congress dismantled privacy rules

In March, Congress killed new federal privacy rules that required internet providers to get customers’ OK before using or sharing their data.

Congressional Republicans knew their plan was potentially explosive. They wanted to kill landmark privacy regulations that would soon ban internet providers, such as Comcast and AT&T, from storing and selling customers’ browsing histories without their express consent.
So after weeks of closed-door debates on Capitol Hill over who would take up the issue first — the House or the Senate — Republican members settled on a secret strategy, according to Hill staff and lobbyists involved in the battle. While the nation was distracted by the House’s pending vote to repeal Obamacare, Senate Republicans would schedule a vote to wipe out the new privacy protections. 
On March 23, the measure passed on a straight party-line vote, 50 to 48. Five days later, a majority of House Republicans voted in favor of it, sending it to the White House, where President Donald Trump signed the bill in early April without ceremony or public comment.
“While everyone was focused on the latest headline crisis coming out of the White House, Congress was able to roll back privacy,
“Trump and the Republicans are doing so many different things on parallel tracks, the news media and activists can’t follow it all,” said Trump adviser and former House speaker Newt Gingrich. “This is by design.”
Anyone with a functioning brain would be scared by this sceneario, BUT, the FOXSheep, like trained monkeys, take it in stride, cuz Trump has (R) after his name. Sickening but SO Republican, as our rights are sold 'down the tiver' by Pubs who rake in millions, selling their souls and our rights..
Nothing new here. At least they don't have us in a new war YET, but how far away can THAT be, with those profiteering war mongers in charge?
