The Bronfman family is heavily involved with the Canadian PM, one of the boys grew up with Justin Trudeau and was his campaign manager. There are corruption issues around the offshore money leak a few months back.

There was an information sharing provision in a recent piece of legislation or EO (which one was that?). That's for the global aspects.
All over the world, not just in the USA.
Once it gets rolling in earnest, it will be a global phenomenon, and God willing, the dragnet will take down the so-called "elites" if they are corrupt or breaking the law, or sacrificing children to the devil.
Are you thinking of the Cloud Act that was passed as part of the Omnibus bill, or was it seperate legislation?
Republicans including the White House introduced it in Feb. It didnt make it out of the House, so they porkbarreled it into the "Omnibus".
Dying to see Q's thoughts on that.....

FOSTA/SESTA WILL DESTROY US ALL

"When the Department of Justice is the group urging Congress not to expand criminal law and Congress does it anyway, something is very wrong." -How the Congress Censored the Internet
The new "Monster Hybrid" FOSTA-SESTA package, was passed 97-2 in the Senate today. The bill is a confusing mishmash of a bill, an act, some major overreach, and the facade of being a solution to #endhumantrafficking. After the Backpage.com scandal and child exploitation showing up on platforms such as Youtube, Twitter and Facebook, how can one be against legislation that thwarts sex trafficking and protects children??? Well, that's exactly what they are counting on, our ignorance and small, independent platforms being crippled by the fear of commiting a federal crime.
The Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act of 2017(SESTA), the amended Section 230 of the Communication Decency Act of 1996 (CDA) just passed today, and the House Judiciary's version, Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act (FOSTA) passed this past February, and both have been wrapped up in a pretty little package and is on its way to Trump's desk to potentially be signed into law within the next few months.
Not many in the truth movement have picked up what this actually means. It will have a debilitating effect on free speech because the fear to not censor will put in jeopardy the very research we do every single day to expose and spread awareness about child sex trafficking by the very nature of the subject matter. Nevermind putting the very same exploited children and victims it aims to protect into even more danger by putting them back on the streets and further underground.
If this bill becomes law, not only will it completely change how platforms deal with controversial content, it will increase censorship by magnitudes that we have never seen before. Platforms will be forced to overly censor to ensure, either through human moderation or algorithms, that any content that promotes, aids, references, or has the appearance of sex trafficking or prostitution be completely blocked or deleted. This also means that platforms will stop moderating all together to avoid being held responsible, but the new bill is broadly worded with no definitions or protocol, so its hard to decipher terms like "facilitate" or "knowingly" in regards to how an internet platform becomes an accomplice.
The most concerning to me is that the Internet Association, a large consortium of the mega providers and platforms on the internet, are all strongly in favor of this bill. That raised some red flags. So, who makes up the Internet Association you might ask?

Call me crazy...but I have the feeling that "Follow the white rabbit" has been leading up to this Easter Sunday.
I also think 'Good Friday' may possibly be 'GREAT'.
