Arizona bill forces people to submit DNA

 

It’s Friday. So let’s take a look and see how our police state is coming along. The news from Arizona caught my eye, so let’s do a medley of news from “the front” with some flashbacks.

For those sucking up the Socialist kool-aid, there will be lots more of this coming to your town soon.

Arizona: Bonus: You have to pay the $250 buckeroos for it.

New legislation working its way through the Arizona Senate would establish one of the country’s first statewide DNA databases in which wide swaths of residents would be forced to give up their genetic material.

The DNA database would be maintained by the Department of Public Safety, which would include a person’s name, social security number, date of birth and last known address – and could be accessed and used by law enforcement for investigations. The database can also be shared with other government agencies across the country for the purposes for “employment, licensing, death registration, missing persons identification,” and IDing people using aliases or multiple identities, reports AZ Central.

No other state has anything this expansive in place, according to David Kaye, an associate dean for research at Penn State University who studies genetics and its application in law.

Kaye said the proposed bill is one step away from requiring DNA from anyone who wants a driver’s license. –AZ Central

Arizona wants some DNA, but the FBI wants all of it

While Arizona’s bill collects DNA from certain categories of individuals – and eventually everyone once they’re dead, the FBI is creating a “nation of suspects” according to a US think tank, as they seek to collect every single American’s DNA for a massive database signed into law in 2017 by President Trump which comes into effect this year.

The Rapid DNA Act allows police to routinely collect DNA samples from anyone they’ve arrested, but before they’ve been convicted of a crime. The 2017 law requires several states to connect Rapid DNA machines to the “Codis,” the FBI’s national DNA database.

Approximately the size of a desktop printer, use of the Rapid DNA machines made by Thermo Fisher Scientific and others, are “expected to become as routine a process as taking fingerprints,” according to the Daily Star.

But John W. Whitehead from The Rutherford Institute believes it is a sinister development which will make everyone a suspect.
Speaking to Daily Star Online, he said: “The fact of the matter is that these machines are not full-proof.“But we could look at a situation in which someone could be arrested, have their mouth swabbed and then be charged within hours after generating a DNA profile.“We are looking at the erosion of the concept of innocent before proven guilty because it will allow police to go on fishing expeditions. –Daily Star

Meanwhile Phones are making Minority Report’s Precrime a reality – and other things we’ve learned.

Phillip K Dick predicted it, Steven Spielberg committed it to film and FOX is about to bring it to TV – but it looks like Precrime is already becoming a reality.

We’ve been reading through a new report released by EPJ Data Science called “a survey of results on mobile phone datasets analysis” which looks at what 15 years of mobile data has taught us.

For example, a study published by Bogomolov et al has used mobile phone traces to try to predict whether a certain area would become a crime hotspot within the next month. The study used the estimated number of people in each area, the age, gender as well as work, home and visitor group splits. All of the information was directly gained from mobile phone data.

That information was then pushed through the system and it found they could predict whether a certain area would be the scene of a crime in the next month with an accuracy of 70%.

In a separate study Bogomolov et al set out to find out if mobile phones could predict a person’s daily stress levels from non-invasive sensors, as well as mobile data.

Only using one lot of data provided a poor result but if the data was combined with personality traits and knowledge of the weather conditions they found a 72% accuracy in predicted whether people were stressed. Full story over at Tech Data

Nestled in President Obama’s stirring speech reasserting America’s commitment to the Rule of Law was a stunning announcement of a plan for a new legal construct justifying the “prolonged detention” of people we think might misbehave in the future.

This is the change Obama promised. Swathes of the discontent rounded up and imprisoned indefinitely. The persecution of the witches was nothing to what the schemers pulling his strings have laid plans for.

Let’s add this final memory from my way back machine not so long ago:

Meet ‘Sensitivity Readers’ looking for thought crimes prior to publication

…Censors who study manuscripts for thought crimes so that books can be revised or rejected prior to publication are called “sensitivity readers.” The Chicago Tribune approvingly defines a sensitivity reader as “a person who, for a nominal fee, will scan the book for racist, sexist or otherwise offensive content.”

“The industry recognizes this is a real concern,” said Cheryl Klein, a children’s and young adult book editor and author of “The Magic Words: Writing Great Books for Children and Young Adults.” Klein, who works at the publisher Lee & Low, said that she has seen the casual use of specialized readers for many years but that the process has become more standardized and more of a priority, especially in books for young readers.

Rigid control of what young people read is a higher priority, because their opinions are more malleable, still being in the process of forming.

Sensitivity readers have emerged in a climate – fueled in part by social media – in which writers are under increased scrutiny for their portrayals of people from marginalized [i.e., politically favored] groups, especially when the author is not a part of that group.

If you portray characters in any light that could possibly be construed as reflecting negatively on a politically preferred group like blacks, you are a racist thought criminal; good luck getting published. Avoiding this problem by ignoring blacks is exclusionary and therefore also racist. The only course of action that is not racist is to crowd your work with cartoonishly correct black characters who have been explicitly approved by the thought police. If you do that you are not racist; you are a cultural expropriator. More at Moonbattery

Obama getting ready to commute traitor Bradley Manning sentence

Is it possible for Obama to express any further disdain for America in these final days of his administration? Why of course it is. Emptying Gitmo terrorists upon us, and why not signal leaking classified docs is not a big thing. Unless it concerns the Democrats. But we already learned that with the Clintons now didn’t we? Meanwhile that poor fellow who took a couple of pics inside a submarine and sent them to his mother will rot in jail because they were labeled classified.

Remember how outraged the Dems were roughly 5 seconds ago about Wikileaks and the Russians? Remember how that was treason? But that’s only when important things, like Hillary Clinton losing an election, come up. Not petty things like national security.

manningObama has put Bradley Manning, the former Army intelligence analyst serving a 35-year sentence for leaking classified material, on his short list for a possible commutation, a Justice Department source told NBC News.

A decision could come as soon as Wednesday for Manning, who has tried to commit suicide twice this year and went on a hunger strike in a bid for gender reassignment surgery.

Manning — then known as Bradley — was locked up in 2010 after swiping 700,000 military files and diplomatic cables and giving them to Wikileaks.

The hounds of hell descend on Trump

The bull in the china shop in the form of Trump broke a few egos. The method of cleaning up the intelligence community apparently will be full throttle. So let’s go. Bring in on. I give you a couple of responses and warnings that are suppose to have the Trumpster shaking in his boot.

In a final attempt to undermine the incoming administration Senator John McCain in collusion with the FBI presented the fake news organization known as mccain-sorosbuzzfeed with a fake story accusing Russia of having damaging sexual information on President-Elect Donald Trump. CNN then ran with the story in an attempt to deceive the American people into believing that the incoming President engages in degenerate behavior. The President-Elect responded this morning in his first press conference since winning the election calling CNN “Fake News” he also responded on twitter questioning if we live in Nazi Germany.

Schumer: Trump ‘really dumb’ for attacking intelligence agencies …

Clinton denied high level Chinese defector to assist Beijing leaders

This is a prime example of the kind of leadership we can expect with a Clinton Presidency. She never was able to figure out the White hats, nor the Black hats. She tore through the Middle East dispatching an Arab Spring hell fire the likes of which ended with failed states rich with terrorists. You want some intelligence? No, let’s help China. Here tis:

Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton turned away a high-ranking Chinese defector who sought political asylum after the communist police chief sought refuge in a U.S. consulate in southwestern China four years ago.

Critics say Clinton’s handling of the defection of Wang Lijun, a close aide to a regional Communist Party leader, was a blunder and lost opportunity for U.S. intelligence to gain secrets about the leaders of America’s emerging Asian adversary.

However, the defector’s case highlights Clinton’s policy of seeking to preserve U.S. ties with China’s communist leadership instead of pursuing much-needed intelligence gathering on China at a time when Beijing is emerging as an increasingly threatening power.

Details of the mishandling of the Wang defection have been kept secret by the Obama administration, and Clinton’s version of events were contradicted by U.S. officials and the official Chinese account. Instead of gaining long-term access to a valuable defector with inside knowledge of Chinese strategy and policies, Clinton contacted the Chinese government in Beijing and allowed security officials to take Wang into custody outside the U.S. consulate some 30 hours after he entered the property in a daring bid to flee China for the United States.

Senate Intelligence Authorization Act, Would Allow Arrest of Journalists, Anti-war Activists, Academics and Students

The media goes back and forth discussing the pivotal moment of the first GOP debate. What orifice did Trump have in mind of the blood flowing from Megan Kelly. Meanwhile, the Congress once again lines up to take our freedom. This post follows yesterday’s FBI: Citizens Should Have No Secrets That The Government Can’t Access

S. Res. 1705: Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2016. 

If enacted, Section 603 will require online companies to inform Washington of any “actual knowledge” of “facts and circumstances” related to undefined “terrorist activity” – meaning warrantless searches and seizures of personal electronic content will be authorized, potentially subjecting countless numbers of innocent people to unjustifiable scrutiny.

Senate members overwhelmingly support S. 1705. Before recessing until September, they were set to pass it by voice vote until Senator Ron Wyden objected.

Vague language makes independent journalists, political, anti-war, and social justice activists, academics and students doing legitimate research, as well as others vulnerable to being called suspected terrorists.

The possibility could encourage self-censorship. Service providers may over-report to show compliance with the law. Online users could be flagged for using suspect words or phrases.

One definition of terrorist activity can be another’s way of describing freedom fighting. Legitimate government criticism could be misinterpreted and misused.

Anyone ideologically opposed to US policies could become vulnerable to arrest, prosecution, conviction and imprisonment for expressing their views online. Police states operate this way.Full story over at Global Research

Obama attended Intelligence Daily Briefings only 42 percent of the time UPDATE

UPDATE:  and more over at Breitbart

STATE DEPT. ON OBAMA INTEL BRIEFINGS: ‘HE RECEIVES THOSE WHENEVER HE CAN’

When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared.

“Well, I have no validation of those statistics,” said Psaki. “There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can.”

Back to the post:

It was clear that Obama had little interest in the nuts and bolts of governing when his signature piece of legislation, Obamacare had a disastrous rollout. That certainly was a “tell.” One would think he would have inquired at some point how things were going. So the fact that Obama may look at his “Daily Briefing” via IPAD if his golf and fund-raising doesn’t get in the way should not be a surprise either. Since our security is the paramount job of President, that fact that he would not be interested in raising questions regarding the briefings should be alarming to say the least. So here we go.

Ultimately, as ABC News reported, the White House did not directly dispute the GAI’s numbers but instead said Obama prefers to read his PDB on his iPad instead of receiving the all-important live, in-person briefings.

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI)report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014.

The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second.

The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at the feet of his Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

“I think our head of the intelligence community, Jim Clapper, has acknowledged that I think they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria,” said Obama.

“Either the president doesn’t read the intelligence he’s getting or he’s bullshitting,” a former senior Pentagon official “who worked closely on the threat posed by Sunni jihadists in Syria and Iraq” told the Daily Beast.

Now, with ISIS controlling over 35,000 square miles of territory in its widening caliphate in Iraq and Syria, and with Obama pointing fingers at his own Director of National Intelligence James Clapper for the rise of ISIS, the question remains whether a 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings is good enough for most Americans.

Obama Gov shut down plan? Put Americans at risk

While we were captured by the visuals of the WW II memorial shut down, a much more evil and sinister process was underway at our intelligence agencies. One can only conclude that the furloughing of a majority of those who dedicate their lives to protecting us was an intentional act to make us less secure. If one accepts this premise, then one has to conclude that any attack would have been well received and could have been used for political purposes. In other words, we are expendable for the good of the Obama agenda. One also has to wonder how much intelligence was lost, never to be able to be recaptured. Here we go. Our man Clapper.

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper admitted that furloughing “nearly three-quarters of the workers at the government’s intelligence agencies” due to the shutdown “put the United States at greater risk of terror attacks.”

According to McClathcyDC, “lawmakers, former intelligence officials and national security experts say they were shocked that the administration furloughed the bulk of federal workers at 16 intelligence agencies, many of them tasked with the most important job in government: safeguarding lives.”

It’s difficult for me to understand,” said Leon Panetta, who served as the director of the CIA and the secretary of defense under President Barack Obama. “People that are involved in our intelligence are critical. You can’t possibly put 70 percent on furlough and not harm national security.”

For those who want to have a recap of the purpose of our man Clapper, an interview with humor. ABC interview : The Director of National Intelligence lacks some “intelligence”… (I mean “intel”, of course…) Diane Sawyer is confused.

Clapper should have kept his clapper shut. Muslim Brotherhood OK

Clapper makes Janet look like she has it together. No doubt you saw some of this by now, but The Blaze put together a nice collage. But first, let us have a vid on the lighter side. It is one of the funniest I have come across!

Here is a great take on the Diane Sawyer interview when Jim had a little trouble knowing what had happened that morning in London. Obama is right on track as well with Jim’s intelligence. Enjoy !

Blaze:

In a statement to ABC News, Jamie Smith, director of the office of public affairs for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, said Clapper was commenting on the political system in Egypt rather than the makeup of the group itself:

To clarify Director Clapper’s point — in Egypt the Muslim Brotherhood makes efforts to work through a political system that has been, under Mubarak’s rule, one that is largely secular in its orientation — he is well aware that the Muslim Brotherhood is not a secular organization.

But that’s now what he said, and the damage may already be done. Soon after Clapper made the statements, numerous news outlets picked up on the incredible remarks, made at a House Intelligence Committee hearing and contradicted by FBI Director Robert Mueller.
