The FBI’s Secret Facial Surveillance Program Now Faces Lawsuit

Countries around the world, including the United States, are in the midst of a facial recognition technology race. The closer that our world gets to sustainable, impactful facial recognition, the more privacy the general public loses. We’ve already seen evidence of how nefarious facial recognition technology can become. Just take Hong Kong’s recent protests, as an example of how such “innovation” can cater to authoritarian regimes.

While you may feel this type of things “only happen in places like Hong Kong,” you’re naivety to the United States technology race may end up crippling you.

That’s because the FBI most certainly partakes in facial data collection. They also collect information on how you walk and your voice. The FBI, according to a new lawsuit filed by the ACLU, can match 640 million images of United States adults. And worse more, the FBI is helping Amazon further develop recognition surveillance technology.

The FBI working with Big Tech could yield dire consequences for citizens not only in the United States but around the world.

. Israel and US Introduce Tech “Solutions” to Destroy Political Activists

If you’re interested in the backstory on Jeffrey Epstein—a story largely ignored by the corporate media—read Whitney Webb’s How the CIA, Mossad and “the Epstein Network” are Exploiting Mass Shootings to Create an Orwellian Nightmare.

The subhead reads: “Following another catastrophic mass shooting or crisis event, Orwellian ‘solutions’ are set to be foisted on a frightened American public by the very network connected, not only to Jeffrey Epstein, but to a litany of crimes and a frightening history of plans to crush internal dissent in the United States.”

Webb mentions convicted felon Oliver North:

Perhaps most disturbing of all, whatever technological solution is adopted by the Trump administration [to address mass shootings], it is set to use a controversial database first developed as part of a secretive U.S. government program that involved notorious Iran-Contra figures like Oliver North as a means of tracking and flagging potential American dissidents for increased surveillance and detention in the event of a vaguely defined “national emergency.”

North and associates used PROMIS (Prosecutors Management Information Systems) software to build this database. The software has a rather colorful past. “The PROMIS software was created by INSLAW Inc., a company owned by a former NSA intelligence officer named William Hamilton,” writes Ed Encho.

The software was modified for espionage purposes to include a ‘back door’ that could be used for spying on those that it was sold to… It is important to keep in mind the period when PROMIS was stolen in the early 1980’s and the fact that the technology boom was still years in the future which should give one an idea to just how far advanced and therefore how important that it was to those who would use it in order to promote a sinister agenda.

Is the U.S. Government the Enemy of the People? America’s Lost Liberties, Post-9/11

4 Comments

With our own government fast becoming our enemy, we have become a police state. We have few if any rights left to us. A corrupted judiciary, militarized police, war weapons turned on the public, and total surveillance threatening us all….we have no where to go…nowhere to hide…how does that fake political party look to you now?

John W. Whitehead, Constitutional Attorney

“These are the times that try men’s souls.” ― Thomas Paine, The American Crisis

Take heed, America.

Our losses are mounting with every passing day.

What began with the post-9/11 passage of the USA Patriot Act  has snowballed into the eradication of every vital safeguard against government overreach, corruption and abuse.

The citizenry’s unquestioning acquiescence to anything the government wants to do in exchange for the phantom promise of safety and security has resulted in a society where the nation is being locked down into a militarized, mechanized, hypersensitive, legalistic, self-righteous, goose-stepping antithesis of every principle upon which this nation was founded.

Set against a backdrop of government surveillance, militarized police, SWAT team raids, asset forfeiture, eminent domain, overcriminalization, armed surveillance drones, whole body scanners, stop and frisk searches, police violence and the like—all of which have been sanctioned by Congress, the White House and the courts—our constitutional freedoms have…
