On August 3, the US Congress passed a bill to ban the import of all foreign internet products and services.
The US internet industry had already been lobbying hard for the ban, claiming that the technology was in fact already in use on the global stage and that US companies were simply seeking to protect their brand.
This bill had already passed the House in June, and the US Senate had already considered it before the US president signed it into law.
Now, the Senate had voted on a watered-down version of the legislation, making it much more difficult to enact and enforcement.
It was a stunning reversal of fortune for the US internet companies, who had hoped that a ban on their products would have the same effect as a global gag order.
The ban had been a long-time ambition of US tech giants like Google and Facebook.
But the Trump administration’s latest move, which had not been widely expected, had the opposite effect.
It had created a new legal and political problem for internet companies that had worked hard to make the internet work as we all know it today.
The internet companies were not prepared for the consequences of the new ban, and they did not know how to react.
The consequences of a global ban are already being felt across the globe.
In China, the Chinese government has already started banning all foreign companies from doing business with foreign internet companies.
The United States has already banned Chinese internet companies from conducting business with US citizens and companies.
And, in the UK, internet users have been hit with fines, cancelled or restricted service and even blocked from accessing some websites.
The implications of a worldwide ban are far-reaching, from the political and economic fallout to the loss of jobs and economic opportunities.
The impact of this global gag is also being felt in the US.
The new US internet ban will make it more difficult for American companies to compete in a global marketplace.
It will limit access to US-based companies like Netflix, YouTube, and Hulu and may even prevent them from expanding to foreign markets.
And the US will lose out to Chinese companies that will be able to compete with US-owned internet companies and services in Asia.
And in China, this ban will not just hurt the Chinese internet, but will hurt the broader Chinese internet as well.
The global gag The gag order, known as the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act, or CISPA, was passed by Congress in 2013 as a way to curb domestic cyber threats and to share information with the United States government.
It aims to protect the US from hackers from China and Russia, and to encourage other countries to do the same.
It has been the subject of intense scrutiny in the past two years as a result of the Snowden revelations, and it was a major reason behind the decision to go ahead with the global gag.
CISPA passed with a huge majority in both the House and the Senate, and President Donald Trump signed it in March.
But, in its current form, it is a very different thing than the original CISPA that passed in 2013.
CISPAs original intent was to allow the government to share with private companies information about cybersecurity threats to US businesses, including information about US citizens.
But in the CISPA of 2013, the government did not intend to share any information with companies like Facebook or Google, or even with the US military.
This was the real intent of the bill.
CISPs original intent, in other words, was to let companies like Google, Facebook and others like them share information about the internet.
And yet, the new US legislation is not exactly what the original intent of CISPA had been.
CISpAs original intention was to provide the government with information about threats to national security.
CISps intent is not to share intelligence with the military, or with anyone else.
CISpbases original intent is to protect US companies from cyber attacks by foreign governments.
And it is not.
The purpose of CISpbats original intent has been completely replaced by CISp’s purpose, to prevent US companies like them from competing in a world that is already saturated with foreign companies.
This is the new global gag, a new kind of cybersecurity law that has been written with a different goal in mind.
A global gag law The new legislation was not passed as an afterthought.
It is a direct response to the Snowden leaks.
It came just as the US was struggling to come to terms with the leaks, and as a response to a very real threat from China to disrupt US internet services and American businesses.
A year ago, China and the United Kingdom, two of the world’s most important economies, were threatening to go to war over internet traffic in cyberspace.
And on August 4, 2017, the Trump government, following weeks of threats, announced that it was going to ban all internet services in China and shut down internet services operated by American internet companies such as Netflix and YouTube.
But this ban did not affect internet services like Facebook and Google.
