F.B.I. Has Covertly Collected Iris Scans of US Citizens

Posted in Uncategorized on August 16, 2016 by realizethelies

In an article published by the Verge,it was revealed the FBI has been quietly collecting hundreds of thousands of iris scans as part an experimental program referred to as the “FBI Iris Pilot.” Working together with local police departments, U.S. Border Patrol, and the Pentagon, the FBI has discreetly amassed 434,000 iris scans.

The surveillance technology, used primarily by airports and private security companies, was pitched in 2013 as a way to help police departments catch criminals in a safer and more efficient manner. At that point, the FBI already had 30,000 scans and was looking to coordinate with local and national agencies to develop a searchable database of scans taken by police departments across the nation. The iris scan, which can be taken from a distance and requires no physical contact, was to be taken upon arrest and submitted whether charges were pressed or not.

California was the first to get on board with the program, according to a memo signed by representatives from the FBI and California Department of Justice. Departments in Texas and Missouri also participate, but records show the bulk of scans in the database come from California.
All agencies are required by law to conduct Privacy Impact Assessments on programs collecting personal information, but no such assessment was made on the pilot program prior to its operation. According to the Verge, an FBI representative claimed they were exempt in this case “because the pilot was conducted with limited participation for a limited period of time.”

The potential ramifications of a surveillance program that can collect an average of 189 iris scans per day—from one department alone—could be severe and warrant heavy scrutiny before being implemented nationwide.Just last month, the FBI was found to have been collecting hundreds of millions of facial scans in a separate program much like the iris pilot. A report from the Government Accountability Office showed not only that the program was being operated with an out-of-date privacy assessment, but also that tens of millions of facial scans came from “driver’s license photos that were not linked to any crime.”

The most alarming discovery is that both programs operate under the FBI’s Next Generation database, a project the Bureau is working to keep outside the reach of the Privacy Act. This has (rightfully) drawn the attention of critics who believe the FBI should not be permitted to operate in complete darkness.

It’s absurd for anyone to deny the fact the United States government is using every tool at its disposal to obtain personal information from its citizens, violating the most basic of human rights. When the government is permitted to know everything about its citizens while it is simultaneously allowed to protect its own privacy, there’s a very serious problem.

Terrifying New Weapons Police Are Using To Crush Protests

Posted in News, Police State, Surveillance, Technology with tags , , , , , , , on August 16, 2016 by realizethelies

The future of police technology has arrived, and it’s stranger and more terrifying than we could’ve possibly imagined.

Conspiracy theorists’ worst fears were confirmed last month when the New York Post reported that the NYPD now maintains an undisclosed number of unmarked, military-grade vans with X-ray radiation, capable of scanning the public and looking through building and vehicle walls.

This technology, called the “Z Backscatter” van, was used by the military in Afghanistan and costs somewhere between $729,000 and $825,000.
However, there’s no way we can know for sure what these futuristic vans are capable of, including potential health impacts due to radiation exposure, because the NYPD refuses to talk about them. The NYPD’s insistence on complete, blanketing secrecy is part of a growing trend within the surveillance state that civil rights advocates have been fighting for decades.

xrayvan

The Backscatter vans are only the beginning. Police departments around the nation have deployed a whole host of new devices, from laser light guns to facial recognition scanners. Here’s what’s being used by police right now:

Pain Ray Cannon (Active Denial System)

ADS

What began in the early days of the Bush Administration as a way to quell Iraq war-era uprisings could soon end up at local police departments.
The pain ray cannon, or “Active Denial System,” (ADS) as the police call it, is the latest form of military-grade crowd control. The weapon uses microwave beams to heat up the water and fat molecules in a person’s skin, effectively heating the person up until they run away.

Though “less-than-lethal,” its effects are anything but enjoyable. According to people who have had the pain ray tested on them, “it feels like someone opened an invisible door to a blast furnace in front of them, or that their skin was being scorched all over instantly. During protest situations, an ADS could be swept across large groups of people at a closer range than originally intended. The systems could be used to deter a crowd from a single area or to incapacitate drivers. If left unchecked, the pain ray cannon could allow for some pretty repulsive human rights violations.

LRAD Sound Cannons

LRAD

Instead of tear gas and batons, departments have taken to using Long Range Acoustic Devices (LRADs), to transmit a super-loud high-pitched scream into crowds. The sound is literally too painful to be around and is intended to “shape the behavior of potential threats”
Police Departments from New York City to Toronto to Ferguson, Missouri are using LRADs indiscriminately on protesters, causing excruciating pain to anyone within range.

This is not a precision tool,” said Gideon Oliver, a lawyers who wrote to NYPD Commissioner Bratton. “This is an area-of-effect weapon. When the police use it, it’s not as if they’re just targeting one person. It’s indiscriminate like teargas.”

Facial Recognition Software

FRtablet

With secrecy and deception clouding any conversation about the militarized surveillance state, we can only assume that we are being recorded almost all the time, at least in urban areas. The market has more than tripled since 2008, with cameras being used more invasively every day.

Just last year the Boston Police Department was caught testing out its facial recognition technology on attendees of Boston Calling music festival without their knowledge. Data on each individual’s build, clothes and skin color was captured on thousands of people.

The ACLU claims police departments are also attempting to gain access to private security cameras in order to expand their surveillance reach without having to install new cameras of their own.

HD Camera Drones

cameradrone

Even more aggressive than thousands of surveillance cameras on every street corner is police reconnaissance from the sky. Several police departments have deployed aircrafts with high-resolution cameras and software that can identify and track people over long distances. FBI versions of these planes include technology that may be able to capture private data from cellphones as they track someone, according to the Associated Press.

Concerns have been raised regarding use of this technology for police surveillance, including protection from “unreasonable search and seizure.” The U.S. Department of Justice released its own guidelines on the matter in May, barring federal law enforcement agencies from using drones to “monitor activity protected by the First Amendment”, such as peaceful protests.

Police State Trend: Law enforcement preparing for rioting on a national scale

Posted in Martial Law, News, Police State with tags , , on August 16, 2016 by realizethelies

riot_police

A new report from analysts with industry research group, Sandler Research, forecasts the Global Riot Control System Market for the next four years — but beyond a burgeoning market to parallel the expanding global police state, it appears world governments are also keenly aware of civilian discontent.
Sandler predicts the market will have an annual growth of 3.5 percent, and makes a telling juxtaposition, emphases added, involving the United States:
Law enforcement agencies around the world are the biggest market for riot control systems. This market is expected to generate revenues of over 3.5 billion USD by the end of 2020. Countries such as the U.S., Iran, Egypt, Russia, China, and Thailand have started procuring riot control equipment and are investing heavily in non-lethal weapons.

Specifically, the analysts continue:

“In North America, the prominent markets are Canada and the U.S. and law enforcement agencies in these nations are best equipped with the upgraded weapons. The militarization of the police department and other law enforcement agencies in the Americas has encouraged the use of advanced riot control equipment.”

Militarized police forces have become de rigueur, even in the nation’s smallest towns — but arming law enforcement with the weapons of war, rather than protecting civilians, has birthed a chasm of distrust and animosity on both sides. It isn’t as if this equipment is being produced by a marketplace intent on keeping civilians safe from an ostensible outside threat.

As if released in conjunction with one another, a report by Lloyd’s intones the necessity of preparedness as mass civil unrest can not only spark without prior warning, but flare outward, unpredictably — what the insurer calls “Political Violence Contagion.” According to the report, instances of political violence “contagion (pandemics) have become more frequent, and the contagion effect ever more rapid and impactful.”

Considering massive worldwide demonstrations in the U.S. and elsewhere — as people finally grasp how corrupt governments actually are — it becomes apparent in these reports the politicians and their enforcement agencies comprehend the greatest threat to their power.Together, the reports paint a dire prediction — not as much for its illustration of a world in chaos, but for its intimation authoritarian actors may act aggressively to quash even positive and peaceful change by the rest of us.

Declassified “Skull and Bones” Records from Bush II W.H. Set for Public Release

Posted in Deep State, Secret Societies with tags , on July 3, 2016 by realizethelies

Zapata-Skull-and-Bones-700x329

One of America’s most infamous secret societies, Yale University’s Skull and Bones Society, may be a little less secret come July, as the national archives is scheduled to publicly release 1,650 pages of records from the President George W. Bush-era.

The National Archives, which oversees White House records held at the George W. Bush Presidential Library in Dallas, Texas, reportedly received a request on April 15 for materials specific to George W. Bush’s presidency under the Freedom of Information Act.The request specifically sought the public release of records containing 8,072 pages, 3,159 assets (such as presidential memoranda – cards, letters, etc.), and one video clip, according to the National Archives.

After having been thoroughly examined by both the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) and former President George W. Bush himself, last month NARA sent a letter to representatives of the Obama and Bush administrations announcing plans to release 3,404 pages of the Bush-era records to the public, including 1,650 pages relating to The Skull and Bones Society, according to the letter.

Skull and Bones was co-founded at Yale in 1832 by William Huntington Russell and the father of a future president, Alphonso Taft. The society’s alumni boasts many of America’s political elite, including former presidents William Taft, George H. W. Bush, George W. Bush, and current Secretary of State John Kerry. On April 26, Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton was made an “Honorary Bonesman” because she graduated from Yale Law School in 1973.

A FOIA request from author Robert Gaylon Ross Sr. prompted the National Archives to release the Skull and Bones records. Ross has authored several books about secret societies, and claims that many of these organizations, including the Skull and Bones Society, play a critical role in global governance; acting as an unseen hand behind the curtain.

In addition to the 3,404 pages of records, 1,503 assets and one video clip in whole, 582 pages and 186 assets in part will also be released to the public. You can be virtually certain that the juiciest tidbits of information held within the requested records will be shielded from public view as Skull and Bones is deeply intertwined with the U.S. intelligence community.

The FBI is trying to hide it’s secret biometrics database

Posted in Alternative Media, F.B.I., Police State, Surveillance, Technology with tags on July 3, 2016 by realizethelies

fbibiometric

The FBI wants to prevent information about its creepy biometric database, which contains fingerprint, face, iris, and voice scans of millions of Americans, from getting out to the public. The Department of Justice has come up with a proposal to exempt the biometric database from public disclosure. It states that the Next Generation Identification System (NGI) should not be subject to the Privacy Act, which requires federal agencies to give people access to records that have been collected concerning them, “allowing them to verify and correct them if needed.”

The proposal states that allowing individuals to view their own records, or even an account of those records, could compromise criminal investigations or “national security efforts,” potentially reveal a “sensitive investigative techniques,” or provide information that could help a subject “avoid detection or apprehension.”

The database contains biometric information on people who have provided fingerprints to employers, or for licenses and background checks, as well as on convicted criminals and those that have been suspected of wrongdoing even for a short period of time, according to Underground Reporter.

The proposal argues that the FBI should be able to retain the data it has collected on individuals even if they are later found to have done nothing illegal, as the information “may acquire new significance when new details are brought to light.”
The FBI claims the retained data could also be used for “establishing patterns of activity and providing criminal leads.”

Although very little is actually known about the database, the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and EPIC have been able to uncover that the FBI would like to track every individual as they move from one location to another. Jeramie Scott, a national security counsel at the Electronic Privacy Information Center, told NextGov that the proposal “would set a worrying precedent in which law enforcement has significant leeway to decide what information to collect without informing the subject.”

Mind Transfer To A Computer Could Be Possible By 2050. TransHuman Immortality On The Way

Posted in Commentary, DARPA, News, Science, Technology, Transhumanism with tags , , , on May 22, 2016 by realizethelies

Computer_with_human

*Transhumanism is said to be the cutting edge of science, a science that promises eternal human”life” transferred to non biological bodies. Much like Alchemy,Transhumanism seeks to convert one state of matter to another, and being that it is mostly influenced by dogmatic science it see’s the human mind in purely mechanistic terms.

Most of Modern science agrees that The brain is simply a computer,or a tool that can be replicated and tweaked and “uploaded”. Without considering that Consciousness itself may be more than just electrical impulses and trillions of bits and bytes of data. The ultimate goal being to transcend the fragile mortal biological body. It’s an ambitious goal, but one that should take into consideration the nature of consciousness, not simply the cutting and pasting of it into another temporary “container”.

Immortality is Something that the human race has dreamt of since we understood the concept of death. But Rather than dreaming and attempting to keep our physical bodies alive forever, maybe we need to look somewhere else. What’s something that you use every day. What’s something that has incredible power similar to that of our minds. What are you looking at right now? A thought provoking article surely, but what’s displaying it? A computer; running a program. What else is our mind but a type of computer running a program?

I think the brain is like a program in the mind, which is like a computer, so it’s theoretically possible to copy the brain onto a computer and so provide a form of life after deathStephen Hawking

Many scientists and thinkers are suggesting that the answer to eternal life has literally been right in front of us for a while now. The head of British Telecom’s futurology unit stated that rapid advances in computing power would make cyber-immortality a reality within 50 years.
More recently (in 2013) one of todays great minds and Google’s director of engineering, Ray Kurzweil, suggested that the ability to transfer the entire human mind to a computer will be achievable within four decades.

Based on conservative estimates of the amount of computation you need to functionally simulate a human brain, we’ll be able to expand the scope of our intelligence a billion-fold. Ray Kurzweil

We’ve even begun to replicate the functions of a brain. In a study done by The Blue Brain project, Henry Markram and a team successfully simulated the neocortical column of a rat. A complex layer of brain tissue common to all mammals. Although we are still a ways off from replicating the human brain, it is extremely foreseeable that it will exist within many of our lifetimes. Whether it will be affordable to the masses that soon is another question. It could take time for it to become a common and affordable means to an end.

*Well…Not so Fast there, take into account that one of the leading “sources” of making such technology happen is the Pentagon’s DARPA. They most likely aren’t developing this for use by the masses, in fact quite the opposite, it would most likely be used as a tool to bait or control the masses

DARPA Cortical Modem connects the brain directly to a computer

brain-plug-in

A brain-computer interface has been developed by the US Defence Research Projects Agency (DARPA) that is capable of laying a heads-up display over a user’s natural vision.
The “cortical modem” also holds the potential to cure sight loss and enable “electronic telepathy and telekinesis” according to noted futurist Peter Rothman, writing for H+ Magazine.

The interface provides a direct link between the brain and an external device or software through manipulation of the visual cortex.Phillip Alvelda, chief of DARPA’s Biological Technologies, told the conference how the device could replace all virtual reality glasses, such as the Oculus Rift, by bypassing the visual sensory system entirely.

DARPA has led the way in a number of futurist and transhumanist projects, including a tiny implant that assists the body’s organs in healing themselves when injured. Their mission statement has evolved over time. Today, DARPA’s mission is still “to prevent technological surprise to the US, but also to create technological surprise for our enemies.”

And Who would those Enemies be? Well read this for some insight. It doesn’t involve bearded guys hiding in caves, it involves what will be left of the masses of humanity.

ThoughtCrime: Future Possibility, Or Current Reality?

Posted in Alternative Media, F.B.I., Mind Control, N.S.A., News, Social Engineering, Surveillance, Technology with tags , , , , on May 17, 2016 by realizethelies

thought-police

George Orwell introduced the concept of the “Thought Police” in his dystopian novel 1984. Seeking out those citizens who would dare to commit “Thought Crime” using psychological methods and omnipresent surveillance, to search, find, monitor, and arrest members of society who could potentially challenge authority and the status quo, even if only by thought.

Although 1984 was written as a warning against the abuses of absolute power and complete totalitarianism, In our current reality if you were to pay attention to the current headlines you would think that it is being used almost as an instruction manual for a Technological Slavery State.

With Warantless Surveillance being admitted to by the N.S.A. and F.B.I.. Americans are told that “they have no reasonable expectation of privacy”. A former head of the C.I.A had even come forward to discuss the technologies in development for spying on the everyday activities of American citizens,through their own home appliances.

Sounds crazy right?? Wrong, it’s our documented reality that a growing orwellian nightmare is fast encroaching upon us and our activities. So how much longer till it get’s to the point where the Government will even want to read your mind and police your thoughts? Not Long at all.

Mind Reading Technology On The Way

innervoice

“Scientists at the University of California were able to pick up several words that subjects thought using a new mind-reading device. Reseachers at Berkeley, have developed a machine and computer program which converts brain activity into sounds and words.
Speech activates specific neurons as the brain works interpret the sounds as words. Each word activates a slightly different set of neurons.
Now scientists have started to develop an algorithm that can pick up the activity and translate it back into words”.

Sure.. it sounds like a completely benevolent scientific and medical breakthrough,but consider the other side of the coin here. Any technology is only a tool,and that can be used for the betterment of humanity or it’s enslavement.

MALINTENT: Homeland Security Gets Inside Your Head

In Fact the Department of Homeland Security(Still sounds like a Nazi organization to me) is already two steps ahead of you. Because you cant be “free” if you aren’t “safe” from the threats that they created in the first place.

dhsfast

Homeland Security is now testing the next generation of security screening — a body scanner that can read your mind,” This is no polygraph, Subjects do not get hooked up or strapped down for a careful reading. The machine is “like an X-ray for bad intentions,” with its “series of sensors and imagers that read your body temperature, heart rate and respiration for unconscious tells invisible to the naked eye — signals terrorists and criminals may display in advance of an attack.”

MALINTENT’ has been described as the “brainchild of the cutting-edge Human Factors Division in Homeland Security’s directorate for Science and Technology.” It apparently uses facial scanners and body scanners, referred to as Future Attribute Screening Technology (FAST). By reading the expression on one’s face and comparing that expression to other faces on a database, computers can presumably read one’s mood and mental intentions.

Remember..good citizen,this all to keep you safe in the event of another 9-11 type terrorist attack which the Government will do nothing to stop it..again
It has absolutely nothing to do with controlling the movements and now the Minds of the populace. Trust Us!!
Arresting a person for a crime not yet committed, on the basis of perceived intent, amounts to arresting people for thought crimes.

Enter The Electronic Concentration Camp

Commentary_01-06-2014

According to Harlan Girard Managing Director of the International Committee Opposing Microwave Weapons(ICOMW) The United States Government has already established what he calls an Electronic Concentration Camp System (ECCS).
Essentially, the ECCS is a network of microwave towers and broadcast centers that can virtually imprison any citizen of the United States that the Thought Police wish to target. It’s a people zapping system, used to track, torture and psychologically harass inconvenient people who, for one reason or another, have been placed on the government’s long list of enemies.

To support this claim, Girard has amassed an impressive collection of documents which clearly indicate that the U.S. government has no need of the small surveillance units. The number of peace protestors and politically “inconvenient” people who have suddenly begun to hear voices in their heads strongly suggests that the U.S. government has built and fielded something much bigger, much more powerful, and much more scary: a fully developed and fully operational Electronic Concentration Camp System.

And if you think this man is a lone “conspiracy nut” you are wrong. Hundreds of U.S. citizens have come forward with claims of being targeted individuals with Electronic and Microwave weapon harassment. In fact it has even been successfully argued in a court of law that this activity is ongoing.

Mass Targeting of the Population??

gwen-towers

A former DARPA scientist who held a top security clearance has warned that transmissions from cell phone towers constitute a “terrorist act” against the civilian population. Dr. Paul Batcho holds a PhD from Princeton University, and spent nearly three years working for DARPA at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in the field of computational physics.

Batcho has sent numerous letters to federal security agencies, including DARPA and the Department of Homeland Security, claiming that he has identified a “terrorist” threat from cellular towers “in central Florida, and Tampa St Petersburg.”

“I seem to have stumbled across an advanced technology that I would classify as synthetic telepathy,” he wrote in one such missive. “It clearly uses the cellular towers to transmit illegal signals. It sounds unbelievable but it is actual technology being used on civilians of the US. “My basic research does indicate that such technology can exist and dates back to the V2K (P300) mind wave technology of the 1970s. This does appear to be a much more advanced version that allows open communication of human mind to mind bridges.”

So that begs the question..Who Is doing the Targeting? To the general public this would sound like tinfoil hat tripe. But it has been documented that these technologies are patented and being put to use by elements affiliated with the U.S. Government.

It may seem like a far off Sci-Fi fantasy but if you do the research,it’s clear to see that George Orwell’s greatest “Big Brother” nightmare,is gradually becoming a part of our own reality.
