Feds Want To Track Your DNA Like A License Plate

 

 

” The federal government doesn’t just want the ability to track down your car; it wants to be able to track down your body as well.

  Just as details are emerging about a controversial, nationwide vehicle-surveillance database, WND has learned the federal government is planning an even more invasive spy program using “physiological signatures” to track down individuals.

  The goal of this research is to detect – as well as analyze and categorize – unique traits the government can exploit to “identify, locate and track specific individuals or groups of people.”

  According to the program’s statement of objectives, “The scope of human-centered [intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, or ISR] research spans the complete range of human performance starting at the individual molecular, cellular, genomic level.”

 

 

     From the Navy’s Office Of Naval Research we are treated to this overview of State goals within the “biotechnology” field …

 

 

ISR Science and Technology Challenges

” Biometrics

  • Biometric techniques based on whole body, face, voice, iris and fingerprint matching
  • Novel system architectures to increase efficiency associated with translating biometrics to actionable intelligence in bandwidth restricted tactical environments
  • Techniques that enable positive identification of people with some obscured features

Smile For The Cop With The Smartphone And The Facial Recognition Software

 

 

” You look familiar—says the cop with the smartphone. And never mind that FBI specifications allow for a faulty match up to 20 percent of the time; local, state, and federal law enforcement officers based in California’s San Diego and Imperial counties have quietly taken to the streets with federally funded tablets and smartphones to match the faces of people they meet with databased photographs. If the experiment proves successful, in government terms, you can probably expect the blend of cops, mobile devices, and facial recognition software to come to a sidewalk near you.

Managed by the Automated Regional Justice Information System (ARJIS), a joint project of 75 government agencies, and funded by the National Institute of Justice, the Tactical Identification System combines traditional mugshots with controversial (and not entirely reliable) facial recognition software, and puts it in the hands of police officers in the field. The system deployed in California appears to draw only from booking photos at the moment, but many states have already linked facial recognition technology with their driver’s license databases, multi-purposing everybody’s least favorite photos into de facto police lineup images. Police lineup images with uncertain access control and, as mentioned, a high potential for false positives. It’s probably safe to assume that, if the Tactical Identification System approach is replicated elsewhere, police mobile devices will be linked with that wider range of photo databases.”

 

At the rate the Leviathan state is going an EMP strike might be the only way to get our privacy back . God help us .

 

 

 

 

 

Over 200 Million People Are In The Facial Recognition Database

 

 

Anonymous offers tips on beating facial recognition

 

 

” Using the vague criteria of “law enforcement purposes”, the United States has more than 200 million Americans filed away in various facial recognition databases.  If you have a driver’s license or any other government photo ID, your face is probably one of them.

 

The Washington Post reported:

Law enforcement use of such facial searches is blurring the traditional boundaries between criminal and non-criminal databases, putting images of people never arrested in what amount to perpetual digital lineups. The most advanced systems allow police to run searches from laptop computers in their patrol cars and offer access to the FBI and other federal authorities.

 

Only 13 states have not gone into full-out Big Brother mode with facial recognition…yet.  At this time, the states without the technology are Alaska, California, Wyoming, Arizona, Mississippi, Louisiana, Missouri, Michigan, Ohio, Virginia, Maryland,  Maine, and New Hampshire.  However, even though they don’t have the technology to readily identify residents, they still have millions of photos in their databases.

Here’s the breakdown of who has a photo database:

  • The State Department has about 15 million photos of passport or visa holders
  • The FBI has about15 million photos of people who have been arrested or convicted of crimes
  • The Department of Defense has about 6 million photos, mainly of Iraqis and Afghans
  • Various police agencies and states have at least 210 million driver’s license photos “

 

 

 

 

 

NSA PRISM: 3 Ways Orwell’s ’1984′ Saw This Coming

 

 

 

 

 

” In light of the PRISM revelation and the government’s collaboration with private industry in its efforts to collect data, we find ourselves thinking about literary master George Orwell, author of such dystopian achievements as “Animal Farm” and “1984.” The more we think about Orwell’s writings, the more we wonder if he saw all of this coming. Here are three examples that prove he did.

1. Big Brother Is Watching You

This line is uttered all throughout “1984″ and refers to the all-seeing, all-knowing entity that dominates the minds of Oceania’s populace, where 1984 takes place. If the PRISM revelation is any indication, Big Brother certainly is watching us.”

Rise Of The Police State? Judge Says School Can Force Students To Wear RFID Locator Chips

 

 

 

” A federal judge made a ruling this week that has a decidedly Orwellian touch to it.

US District Judge Orlando Garcia ruled on Tuesday that the San Antonio Northside School District can require that its students wear devices with RFID locator chips embedded in them while on school premises. The decision has raised privacy concerns among conservative and liberal privacy-rights groups.

The saga began when 15-year-old magnet school student Andrea Hernandez refused to wear the device while attending Jay High School. School officials expelled the sophomore for not complying with the rule that is required of all students on campus. The case ended up before Garcia who also refused to block the student’s expulsion pending review by the courts.

The Rutherford Institute of Virginia represented the student in federal court. The institute said that the ruling was clearly in violation of the student’s privacy rights and it would appeal the decision.

“We don’t want to see this kind of intrusive surveillance infrastructure gain inroads into our culture,” ACLU senior policy analyst Jay Stanley said. “We should not be teaching our children to accept such an intrusive surveillance technology,” said Stanley, according to Reuters. “

Funniest Joke I Ever Heard 1984 Jimmy Stewart

Remember , The Schools Are Tools Of The Government , Not Of The People 

  ” After a student protested a pilot RFID tracking system in San Antonio, lawyers are now moving to stop expulsion.

John Jay High School sophomore Andrea Hernandez was expelled from her high school after protesting against a new pilot program which tracks the precise location of all attending 4,200 students at Anson Jones Middle School and John Jay High School, according to Infowars.

Under the “Smart ID” program, ID badges have been issued with a tracking chip, which students must wear when attending school. The school badges, worn like a necklace, contain a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chip and links to their social security number. This allows the school to track the student’s location after leaving campus and for as long as the badge is on the student’s person.

The scheme is now in full swing and all students must wear it, according to a letter sent by the school district to the student’s parents and made public. The notice says:

“This “smart” ID card will transmit location information of students to electronic readers which are installed throughout the campus. This is so that we always know where the students are in the building.

After all, parents, you expect school staff to always know where your children are during the school day.” “
