PBS donations are secretly being used by police to spy on Americans

(Video reveals, campus police are also using 'datacasting')
DHS and the First Responders Group (FRG) have created a way to transmit encrypted live video and data using broadcast television signals, It's called 'datacasting'. (The FRG is part of DHS)
Police are secretly using PBS television stations to spy on Americans

DHS is using Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) television stations to send videos and messages to law enforcement across the country.

"Once the hardware [IP encapsulator] is set up at the television station to enable this capability, data recipients will need a datacast receiver connected to their computer in order to receive the information being broadcast from the PBS station. Datacasting’s software allows the owners of the video and other data to target individual users or groups of receivers to receive the video, files and notifications being transmitted."

“Datacasting gives first responders the same broad access to data that we are all used to having on our smartphones, explains John Contestabile, APL’s datacasting program manager. Emergency voice communications are currently good, but they aren’t designed to handle large amounts of data. And, during an emergency, cellular networks become congested and strained from use by the public.”

What they're really saying is, police can use 'datacasting' to secretly communicate with each other after shutting down cellphone service. There have been at least two reported incidents of police shutting down cellphone service in recent years, one in Calif. and another in Boston.

TV stations across the country are secretly allowing police to use 'datacasting'

DHS/Police used 'datacasting' to send secret messages during this years NCAA Men's Final Four Basketball Tournament, which was not broadcast on PBS, it was broadcast nationally on TNT, Turner Broadcasting and TruTV. Click here to see DHS's NCAA 'datacasting' video.

U.S. Park Police secretly use 'datacasting' to spy on 4th., of July celebrations
Police also use 'Visual Analytics for Command, Control and Interoperability Environments'  (VACCINE) to secretly spy on the public via CCTV cameras. Last year, police used VACCINE to secretly spy on everyone attending the MLB's All Star week.

According to DHS, universities, SpectraRep and PBS television stations are working together to make 'datacasting' a reality.

Johns Hopkins University (JHU) is basically a DHS "front" developing new surveillance products for our government.

"We [JHU] apply a strong systems engineering discipline to programs that primarily support the Department of Defense and DHS..." 

"JHU's collaboration with leading research universities allows these organizations to provide the U.S. government with access to our nation’s most highly skilled scientists, engineers, and analysts..."

SpectraRep also appears to be another DHS front company.

"SpectraRep is working with broadcasters around the country to deploy wireless datacast broadband services and applications..."

According to their LinkedIn page they have about 11-50 employees that specialize in Homeland Security broadcast systems.

Your PBS donations are secretly being used to spy on Americans

Below, is an excerpt from the PBS Foundation.

"Your generous gift allows everyone the ability to explore new ideas and new worlds through innovative online programming and television. Together, as a PBS supporter, we can offer trusted news... "

What it should say is, 'Your generous gift allows DHS/Police to explore innovative new ways for law enforcement to spy on Americans. Together as a PBS supporter we can offer trusted police surveillance to everyone.'

When will America speak up and say enough is enough? Police State spying has gone too far!

Police State America is using public television, banks, doctors, teachers, religious groups, mental health centers, social workers, community groups and more to spy on Americans.

Police are giving people and homes 'Social Disorder' ratings

image credit: NIMH
The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) is using a 'Social Disorder Index' (SDI) to determine the level of social disorder a location presents to its surrounding community. SDI can map areas as small as 250 feet by 250 feet.

SDI is just another name for Real-Time Data Centers run by DHS

Police are giving people and homes 'Social Disorder' ratings

Police, are giving people and homes an SDI rating from one to five, areas with murders and shootings are given a five while disturbances are given a one.

People are being arrested based on their 'Social Disorder' rating

According to the IndyStar, police used SDI to target areas and arrest people with a propensity for violence.

Religious groups, mental health centers and community groups are helping police identify social disorder

To combat this so-called social disorder index, police have concentrated more foot and bike patrols, partnered more with faith-based and community groups and mental health outreach specialists.

Americans are also being labeled as "insider threats"

The Department of Defense (DoD) provides a non-exhaustive list of “insider threats,” which include, but are not limited to: “damage to the United States through espionage, terrorism, unauthorized disclosure of national security information, or through the loss or degradation of departmental resources or capabilities.”

Counselors are working with the Police

Officer Jim Gillespie said, that an on-site counselor from Midtown Mental Health Services from IMPD’s North District would inherit the family and calls for assistance and possibly fashion a counseling response.

“Once they identify the issue, connect the family with additional resources to hopefully take care of that so we will not have another repeat call out there” Gillespie said.

"Additional resources" is just another way of saying community spying.

According to the IndyStar article, police spoke with community members to learn about problems they were having and whether they needed help with anything.

Below, are some examples of the "additional resources" police spoke of.

Religious groups, doctors, social workers and teachers are spying for the Police

The FBI/DHS are enlisting clergy, social workers and mental health professionals to counsel (spy on) troubled people who voice support for terrorism.

Earlier this year, I warned everyone that police are cultivating churches, businesses, property managers, etc., to spy on Americans.

According to Mariame Kaba, a Chicago-based organizer and co-founder of the grassroots group We Charge Genocide, the trust fostered in these meetings can come with conditions.

 “They turn into these kinds of meetings where the police deputize community members to basically become arms of the state, Community members are empowered to tell police everything” said Kaba.

Religious groups help the gov't decide whether Police should remove a child from a family

"Called The Care Portal, the online tool allows DCS caseworkers who know of a specific need of a child or family to submit that request via email to nearby churches enrolled in the system."

This is a way churches can partner directly, and that’s a huge game changer for communities,” said J. Michael Davis, the social services domain director of 4Tucson, an organization that promotes partnership in the Christian community. “We could take it anywhere. One church doesn’t have ownership. We are collaborating.”

Our homes are also being given color-coded threat ratings

Any high-priority 911 calls, defined as in-progress or life-threatening crimes, will now be filtered through a database to assess any possible threats an officer may encounter while responding.

"The database goes through all public information for the call’s location — from arrest records to pizza deliveries — and gives the address a rating. Green means minimal threat, yellow a possible threat and red a major threat."

"The RTCC system shows officers three pieces of data: the threat level, the criminal history of anyone living at the home and a list of known friends and family members. This list sometimes includes possible phone numbers and addresses of these associates."

(Updated) 'Fear, American Style' preschoolers practicing lockdowns

image credit: Stacey Feeley
A mother posted the above picture of her three-year-old daughter practicing a lockdown at home.

Congratulations, DHS and police. You've done what no parent could have dreamed of twenty years ago, you given kids new nightmares. Instead of kids being afraid of the dark or monsters under the bed, they're now afraid of being killed in school.

'Fear, American Style' isn't a remake of the old 'Love, American Style' TV show. Sadly, its about kids being afraid of getting killed.

Teaching preschool kids and K-12 students to run and hide from an active shooter (terrorist) has become a way of life and a business.

"Politicians - take a look. This is your child, your children, your grandchildren, your great grand children and future generations to come. They will live their lives and grow up in this world based on your decisions. They are barely 3 and they will hide in bathroom stalls standing on top of toilet seats," Stacey Feeley said.

Active shooter drills are big business

Business are being paid to conduct active shooter drills nationwide at schools, churches, hospitals, businesses, sports stadiums etc. The ALICE Training Institute gets paid to teach schools how to defend themselves against active shooters. Sage Dynamics, ACT Cert and the Center Mass Group are just some of the companies profiting from active shooter drills.

Not to be outdone, DHS and the FBI created a “Run, Hide, Fight” program that teaches people how to defend themselves against active shooters. For more information about active shooter drills, click here & here.

Feeley, sounds like a mouthpiece for the Obama Administration, blaming the lack of gun control as the reason why her kid lost her innocence.

"At that moment all innocence of what I thought my three-year-old possessed was gone said Feeley."

During her gun-control rant, Feeley asks why high-capacity magazines are permitted to be sold to anyone other than the military. What she fails to address, is how police have access to military grade weapons like grenade launchers, tanks and much more. She never asks, why the IRS needs AR-15 assault rifles or why they're being trained by the Army’s Special Forces contractors?

Updated 6/30:

She also never asks, why the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is stockpiling military weapons.

"In the space of eight years, the APHIS has amassed a stockpile of pistols, shotguns, and semiautomatic rifles, along with ample supplies of ammunition, liquid explosives, gun scopes, and suppressors. In its cache as well are night-vision goggles, gas cannons, plus armored vests, drones, and surveillance equipment. Between 2006 and 2014, this organization spent nearly $4.8 million to arm itself. Yet its aggressive weapons buildup has drawn almost no public attention."

Armed federal officers now outnumber… The US Marines

“The number of non-Defense Department federal officers authorized to make arrests and carry firearms (200,000) now exceeds the number of U.S. Marines (182,000),” former Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn said. Click here to view the graphic.

Feeley, goes on to push for the abolition of the 2nd., Amendment and alleges it's the reason, why Americans are being killed.

The 2nd Amendment is a beast to battle and wiping out the right to bear arms is not on the table. Does anyone really think that will be accomplished? Because it won’t. Amended to some extent? Maybe. But how many decades will that take?

If parents would stop and really question, why people would want to hurt Americans, instead of blaming it on the lack of gun control maybe then, we'd see real change.

Since 9/11 or fifteteen years ago, America has killed hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians in the Middle East in its war on terror. According to a 2015 report by the Physicians For Social Responsibility.

The 21st century has seen a loss of innocent civilian life at an unprecedented scale, especially in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Officially ignored are casualties, injured or killed, involving enemy combatants and civilians.This, of course, comes as no surprise. It is not an oversight but a deliberate omission. The U.S. authorities have kept no known records of such deaths.

America has also imprisoned and tortured hundreds of innocent suspects in its war on terror. But very few parents want to discuss that.

Keeping Americans in a constant state of fear, is what America's military complex does best.
Not long ago, America's children lived in a constant state of fear of a nuclear attack.

For those of you old enough to remember, school kids from the 50's-70's were taught to hide under their desks or run to a bomb shelter, in the hopes of surviving a nuclear war.
Is history repeating itself?  You be the judge. 
The next time someone mentions terrorism or 'See Something, Say Something' tell them you're tired of living in fear!

DHS's watch list plan is unconstitutional and dangerous

You might think that gov't watch lists are reserved for violent radical extremists and you'd be wrong.

Here's a short list of how easy it is for anyone to land on DHS's watch list.

1. Displaying Bumper Stickers on Your Vehicle

2. Shop at Costco or Sam’s Club

3. Paying with Cash

4. Vote for a Third Party

5. Flying the American Flag (or any of several historic American flags)

6. Homeschool Your Children
Americans are also being labeled as "insider threats"
The database will include detailed, personal data on a large number of individuals.
There are 25 additional reports that can put any American on the terrorist watch list.

(Updated) The FBI’s 'Facial Recognition Database' contains over 411 million photos

According to a GAO report titled 'Face Recognition Technology, FBI Should Better Insure Privacy and Accuracy' since 2010, the FBI has been building a secret database of over 411 million faces.

According to Techdirt, the FBI has built a massive secret facial recognition database without oversight.

The FBI steadily, stealthily compiled a massive facial recognition database without oversight and in disregard of federal law, according to a report released today by the Government Accountability Office

CJIS the largest division in the FBI has created Facial Analysis, Comparison, and Evaluation (FACE) Services to identify over 411 million people.

18,000 law enforcement agencies voluntarily gave our photos to the FBI

The majority of photos enrolled in NGI-IPS are voluntary submissions from 18,000 federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement entities. About 70 percent of the photos in NGI-IPS were criminal mugshots stored in IAFIS that were not searchable with face recognition technology until the development of NGI.

"The total number of face photos available in all searchable repositories is over 411 million, and the FBI is interested in adding additional federal and state face recognition systems to their search capabilities." (Page 15)

FACE doesn't even have to be accurate

The GAO pointed out that agencies contributing data to the program might have lower accuracy than the FBI, the DOJ responded by saying, “there is value in searching all available external databases, regardless of their level of accuracy.”

Nearly every state, uses the FBI's facial biometrics program to spy on Americans

The FBI is working with 8 additional states to grant them access to NGI-IPS for face recognition searches, and an additional 24 states are interested in connecting to NGI-IPS. However, according to the FBI, use of NGI-IPS for face recognition searches is voluntary, and the FBI does not know if the remaining 11 states are interested in connecting to NGI-IPS

411 million photos and only TWO ARRESTS

To date, more than 6,000 face recognition leads have been returned to FBI agents and other investigators. Most investigations are ongoing, but two arrests have been made as a result of leads provided by the FACE Services Unit, and two victims from a violent crimes case have been located.

Updated: 6/24:

45 organizations urge Congress to hold a hearing on the FBI’s massive biometric database.

The default retention of these records is until the individual turns 110 years old or seven years after the FBI has been notified of the individual’s death regardless of whether the original purpose fort he collection has come to an end or not.

There is no excuse for unnecessarily retaining personal information on millions of people...The collecting of biometric data raises numerous privacy and civil liberties issues.

What is FACE?

The FACE Services Unit of the Biometric Services Section, Criminal Justice Information Services Division provides investigative lead support to FBI field offices, operational divisions, and legal attach├ęs by comparing the facial images of persons associated with open assessments and investigations against facial images available in state and federal face recognition systems.

In its support of FBI agents and analysts, the FACE Services Unit accepts unclassified photographs of subjects of, and persons relevant to, open FBI assessments and investigations.

In other words, the FBI is secretly giving people risk assessments.

The FBI's facial recognition program is expanding

image credit: Softpedia

The FACE Services Unit only accepts probe photos that have been collected pursuant to applicable legal authorities as part of an authorized FBI investigation, and in a future expansion of the program...

The FBI also uses drivers license photos to identify Americans

From 2011 to 2015, the FBI ran over 36,000 facial recognition searches of well over 170 million driver’s license photos – photos of law-abiding drivers unconnected to the criminal justice system.

According to CNN, Police everywhere will be able to tap into the system. Police will scan a motorists fingerprints and license during routine traffic stops.

Upon receipt of a probe photo, the FACE Services Unit uses face recognition software to compare the probe photo against photos contained within government systems, such as FBI databases (e.g., FBI’s Next Generation Identification), other federal databases [REDACTED] and state photo repositories.

In other words the FBI, DHS and the Police are using Real ID photos to identify everyone.

According to Real ID, every drivers license picture must now be facial recognition compatible!
Real ID also links DMV databases with the FBI and DHS.

Now you know why DHS created Real ID.

The FBI uses secret databases to identify everyone

In order to access other agencies’ systems for face recognition purposes, the FACE Services Unit enters into Memoranda of Understanding (MOU) with each agency.  In other words, its a secret.

All records of how the FBI identified a person are destroyed

The FBI immediately destroys all other photos and associated information. The other party to the MOU ensures that only authorized personnel receive and process the photos sent by the FBI. These agencies are prohibited from the further sharing and/or dissemination of any information associated with the FBI photos unless required by law. After the face recognition search has been completed, these agencies are required to destroy all probe photo images, and any associated data submitted from the FACE Services Unit.

How can America claim to be a free and democratic society, when all evidence of how they identify Americans is destroyed?

Wake up America before it's too late. Spying on 411 million people who haven't committed a crime is the very definition of a Police State.

Banks are secretly 'red flagging' our everyday transactions for DHS

Last month, 'Public Intelligence' released a Financial Crimes Enforcement Network document revealing how banks are spying on our everyday transactions for DHS.

Our bank transactions are being reported to DHS

The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) is issuing this advisory to provide financial institutions with information on identifying and reporting transactions possibly associated with Foreign Terrorist Fighters (FTFs) who support the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), al-Qa’ida, and their affiliates in Iraq and the Lev ant region. Financial institutions may use this information to enhance their Anti-Money Laundering (AML) risk-based strategies and monitoring systems.

Don't forget that, DHS's Institute of Terrorism Research and Response works with banks to spy on  law-abiding activist groups like the Tea Party protestors, pro-life activists and anti-fracking environmental organizations. Banks have a sordid history of spying on Americans. Back in 2011, Wall St., and the NYPD were caught spying on protestors.and during the same year, Spiegel revealed how the NSA uses Tracfin to spy on everyone's bank records.

Banks are spying on our social media activity

"Financial institutions may find available social media information helpful in evaluating potential suspicious activity and in identifying risks connected to the red flags provided in this and other advisories. Similarly, the location from which a customer logs into a financial institution’s online services platform may also be considered when determining whether a transaction is suspicious."

Banks are secretly 'red flagging' our transactions

"In applying the red flags below, financial institutions are advised that no single transactional red flag is a clear indicator of terrorist activity. Financial institutions should consider additional factors, such as a customer’s overall financial activity and whether he or she exhibits multiple red flags, before determining a possible association to terrorist financing and FTFs. Financial institutions should also refer to the red flags and other information provided in this and the May 2015 non-public advisory to formulate a more comprehensive assessment of potential suspicious activity."

In other words, there's a 'non-public' or secret bank spying document the public isn't allowed to see!

"Depending on their products and services offered, financial institutions may be able to observe one or more of the following red flags. Some of these red flags may be observed during general transactional screening, while others may be more readily identified during in-depth case reviews."

Have banks become part of DHS?

According to the FinCEN document Americans can be 'red flagged' for the following reasons....

Americans are being 'red flagged' for buying camping supplies

(In my life, I've purchased hundreds of camping supplies, MRE's and propane tanks does that make me a terrorist?)

Americans are being 'red flagged' for buying first-person shooter games

(I wouldn't be surprised, if banks are 'red flagging' Americans playing 'paintball')
image credit:allaboutgames

Think about that for a moment, banks and DHS are spying on people who play first-person shooter games. Fyi, I have played a hundred first-person shooters, does that make me a terrorist?

Please, will someone make a first-person shooter like Postal and make it about DHS. Here's a few  names for the new game, 'DHS Fear', 'DHS Terror', 'DHS Red Flag'.

Americans are being 'red flagged' for taking out personal loans

Americans are being 'red flagged' for liquidating their personal assets

Wake up America, this is ABSURD! Banks 'secretly' spying on our transactions, has nothing to do with the Constitution.
Welcome to Police State America, where even banks have become DHS spies.

Judge Napolitano warns Americans to “wake up” over FBI's new web spying law

"This law will pass because the Congress doesn't give a damn about whether it's unconstitutional! The American people should wake up. This is a major step toward a police state," Napolitano said.

Senator warns Americans about the FBI's surveillance law.

“Such an expansion would swallow up the protections this bill offers to the American people" said senator Mike Leah.
