Plus, the Oregon Court of Appeals takes Biggest Bogon Emitter for going against precedent on forcing defendants to unlock phones, and the MPA and RIAA take a joint Idiot Extraordinaire for trying to paint Cloudflare as protecting pirates.

Plus, the DoJ and their cronies at the New York Times attack encryption, and Nancy Pelosi pretty much ruins the Democrats' chances in 2020 by attempting to impeach Trump.
Bitcoin activity can be traced, UpBit delists privacy coins not understanding the issues, and fraudsters successfully use deep fakes. San Francisco declares the NRA a terrorist group, and California institutes statewide rent control.
Craig Wright loses, DHS watchlist unconstitutional, ransomware attacks up, the RIAA refuses to share data on efficacy of "six strikes," and Rev. Dan Reehill censors Harry Potter because "the spells are real!"
