    Sentence First, Crime Later?
    By Ron Paul - 11/5/2019

    Attorney General William Barr recently sent a memo to law enforcement officials announcing a new federal initiative that would use techniques and tools developed in the war on terror, such as mass surveillance, to identify potential mass shooters. Those so identified would be targets of early interventions, which would include the disregarding of Second Amendment rights, as well as the imposing of mandatory counseling and involuntary commitment.

    The program would likely match data collected via mass surveillance with algorithms designed to identify those with mental problems that would lead them to commit violent crimes. So, this program would deprive Americans of respect for their rights not because they committed, or even threaten to commit, a violent act but because their tweets, texts, or Facebook posts trigger a government algorithm.

    In order to enhance the government’s ability to conduct mass surveillance, Barr has been trying to force tech companies to allow the government to have a “backdoor” for accessing electronic information. This would allow the government to read all messages — even those that are encrypted, making it all but impossible to escape the government’s watchful eye.

    Many mental health professionals admit that diagnosing mental health issues involves a degree of subjectivity. So how can we trust a government-designed computer algorithm to accurately identify those with mental health problems? The answer is we can’t. Barr’s program will no doubt result in many individuals who are not a threat to anyone being deprived of respect for their rights. The program will also fail in detecting future mass shooters.

    Some mental health professionals argue that holding certain political beliefs is a sign of mental illness. Not surprisingly, federal agencies like the FBI agree that those expressing “anti-government extremism”— like supporting a constitutional republic instead of a welfare-warfare state — are potential threats.

    A recent internal FBI memo warned that a belief in “conspiracy theories” is a sign that someone could be a domestic terrorist. “Conspiracy theorist” is an all-purpose smear used against anyone who questions the government’s official narrative on an event or issue. Tying a belief in “conspiracy theory” to terrorism is an effort to not just stigmatize but actually criminalize dissenting thoughts on matters such as foreign policy, climate change, gun control, and the Federal Reserve.

    Some people support using political beliefs as a basis for labeling someone as “mentally disturbed” because they think it will mainly affect “right-wing extremists.” These people are ignoring the FBI’s history of harassing civil rights and antiwar activists, as well as the recent controversy over the FBI labeling “black identity extremists” as a threat.

    A government program to monitor electronic communications to identify potential mass shooters puts all Americans at risk of losing their liberty due to their political views or a few social media posts. All those who value liberty must oppose this dangerous program.

    Apologies if this has been posted before, but I just came across this. Why Did The G.O.P. Turn the Stars on Their Logo Upside Down Very few have noticed, and sadly, very few even care, but the Republican party changed their logo in the year 2000 just as George W. Bush was entering the office. It is very subtle, however, very significant. The emblem of the G.O.P. has always been an...

    Is this all the prelude to making Michelle Obama President?

    Thread Starter: Created4

    Think about it, because it make some sense. Biden has already said his VP will be a woman. Now we have the black/white racial agenda peaking almost overnight, so I have seen some speculation that Biden will choose a black VP. If that is the case, the only real viable black woman is Michelle Obama. It would also make sense if Biden was never picked to be president. They will come up...

    The Fed has printed $326 billion since September 11, 2019. This amounts to a monthly increase of $108 billion. For comparison, QE3 at its height was 'only' $85 billion per month. There are two components to this new QE: repo operations (essentially lending against collateral, like the ECB does) and outright asset purchases (like the Fed did during previous QE rounds). Three months ago,...
