Forget Facial Recognition: DHS’s New Database, HART, Also Uses Scars, Tattoos, and Your VOICE to ID You. And Amazon Is Storing All the Data.

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

These days, you can’t really go anywhere without encountering cameras.  Going into a store? Chances are there are security cameras. Getting money at an ATM? More cameras. Driving through the streets of a city? More cameras still. Your neighbors may have those doorbells from Amazon that are surveilling the entire neighborhood.

And many of these cameras are tied into facial recognition databases, or the footage can be quite easily compared there if “authorities” are looking for somebody.

But as it turns out, it isn’t just facial recognition we have to worry about.

Chinese Citizens Will Be Required To Scan Their Faces To Use The Internet

by Aaron Kesel, Activist Post:

The Chinese government continues its Orwellian practices with the announcement that citizens will have to use facial recognition technology to access the internet (which is already highly fire-walled.)

This is all a part of China’s social credit system that will take effect on Dec. 1st.  After the law is in effect, Chinese citizens who want to have the internet installed at their houses or on their smartphones will be required to undergo a facial recognition process by Chinese authority to prove their identities, according to the new regulation.

Report: Google Targeted Homeless People with ‘Darker Skin Tones’ for Facial Recognition Software

by Lucas Nolan, Breitbart:

A recent report alleges that Google targeted homeless people with “darker skin tones” to capture their biometric data to improve the tech giant’s facial unlock system.

The New York Daily News reports that although Google admitted to having employees in multiple cities offer people $5 gift certificates to sell their facial data and improve the Google facial unlock system, it has recently been claimed that a contracting firm working for Google sent teams to Atlanta to explicitly target homeless people and individuals with dark skin.

CENSOR THE PRESIDENT? DEMOCRATS WANT TRUMP SILENCED

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

Democrat presidential candidate and well-known liar, Kamala Harris wants President Donald Trump’s account on Twitter suspended.  By suspending his account during times of accusations and impeachment rhetoric, the democrat would be actively censoring a sitting president.

Is this the “democracy” democrats are constantly blathering on about? Harris has officially asked Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorset to censor the president of the United States. According to CNBC, in a letter to Twitter’s CEO, Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris says Trump has violated the company’s anti-bullying policies and Twitter should consider suspending his account.

Cops Hold Man at Gunpoint, Beat Him Nearly to Death Over License Place Cover

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

Homestead, FL — Ask any police officer anywhere what happens to suspects when they run from police. Most, if they’re honest, will tell you the perpetrator will most likely get a beat down by the boys in blue for fleeing. But one fleeing suspect’s only crime was not having a legal license plate cover and for running away from police he received a beating which placed him in the hospital.

The government can now activate your phone camera to stream live video of whatever you are seeing

by Ethan Huff, Natural News:

A New Jersey police department recently implemented new technology that allows 911 operators in the area to stream live video from callers’ smartphones with the touch of a button.

While callers will still have to give their consent to such monitoring, some media outlets have dubbed the technology a slippery slope towards automatic surveillance, whereby Big Brother will one day have immediate access to people’s smartphones without their consent.

WATCH: Cops Mistake Innocent Man for a Suspect, Publicly Execute Him

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

Chicago, IL — The Chicago police department has given the Free Thought Project a countless supply of insidious stories ranging from the shooting death of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald to operating a secret black site prison in which innocent people were tortured and maimed. They are continuously caught raiding the homes of innocent people and laying waste to anyone who gets in their way. And, as the following incident shows, being innocent is no defense against Chicago police officers coming to your home, mistaking you for a suspect, and killing you.

Impeachment Is About Putting Down the Peasants’ Revolt

by David Catron, The American Spectator:

Trump must be publicly drawn-and-quartered because he is the leader of the uprising.

Tt should by now be obvious to the meanest intelligence that the Democrats are determined to impeach President Trump with or without credible evidence that he has committed any act resembling “high crimes and misdemeanors.” The “whistleblower complaint” that Nancy Pelosi used as the pretext for launching her ersatz impeachment inquiry contains little but hearsay and fabrication, while her claim that it proves Trump has “violated the Constitution” fails the laugh test. In the end, however, impeachment is less about offenses committed by the president than the desire of the Washington establishment to put down what they see as a peasants’ revolt.

WTF? Los Angeles now hiring GANG MEMBERS as cops, but law-abiding conservatives are not allowed to join the force

by JD Heyes, Natural News:

The more lunatic Left-wing Democrats solidify their control over California and its major urban centers, the closer the state and its cities get to absolute anarchy and collapse.

To begin with, it should be noted that police departments all over the country are having difficulty filling their ranks. This is because the Left, under Barack Obama, began a campaign of demonizing police officers by labeling them racist murderers in virtually every case involving the shooting of a black suspect.

The Purge of Conservatism from America

by Lloyd Marcus, American Thinker:

At the hospital for my annual physical exam, Adam Schiff was on TV in the waiting room. Schiff presented himself as alerting the American people to the “mafia boss” outrageous impeachable demands Trump made during his phone call with the president of Ukraine. Oozing with obnoxious superiority and arrogance, Schiff insidiously deceived viewers to assume he was reciting Trump’s actual words from the phone call. Schiff was lying. Not a single word of what Schiff told the American people that Trump said was in the transcript.

Guns for Hire: No, the Government Shouldn’t Be Using the Military to Police the Globe

by John W. Whitehead, Rutherford Institute:

“Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes… known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few.… No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.” — James Madison

Eventually, all military empires fall and fail by spreading themselves too thin and spending themselves to death.

It happened in Rome.

It’s happening again.

Cop Admits to Conspiring with Fellow Officers to Pull Over Innocent People to Rob and Beat Them

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

Paterson, NJ — Frequent readers of the Free Thought Project already know that much of a police officer’s job consists of stopping people for victimless crimes and extorting or kidnapping them for it. From window tint and seat belt violations to jaywalking, police officers across the country have shown that they will detain, extort, beat and kill people over these “crimes” that have no victims. The entire process is not only approved by the government, but it is necessary for the survival and growth of departments and cities across the country. As the following case illustrates, however, when police officers fail to get their superior’s approval before robbing people during traffic stops, they will be prosecuted.
