DHS WANTED TO ADD US CITIZENS TO THE LONG LIST OF PEOPLE SUBJECTED TO MANDATORY FACE SCANS AT AIRPORTS... BUT HAS BACKED DOWN FOR NOW

We knew the DHS would get to this point eventually. Since the beginning of its biometric scanning program rollout, the DHS has planned on adding US citizens to the list of people forced to trade their faces for air travel privileges. So far, the program has been limited to suspicious foreigners (which is all of them, including those here on visas), but a recent filing -- caught by Zack Whittaker at TechCrunch -- says flying in the United States would soon require adding yourself to the government's facial recognition databases.

Homeland Security wants to expand facial recognition checks for travelers arriving to and departing from the U.S. to also include citizens, which had previously been exempt from the mandatory checks.

In a filing, the department has proposed that all travelers, and not just foreign nationals or visitors, will have to complete a facial recognition check before they are allowed to enter the U.S., but also to leave the country.

The Department of Homeland Security's excuse for subjecting US citizens to mandatory face scans is the homeland's security.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am a little more than stunned at this; I am a Christian pacifist activist, constantly exhorting her government to behave in a moral, responsible manner, and never, ever advocate violence.

And my only tools here are logic, and responsible linking and posting.

So folks, why me?!?

Because logic....doesn't run either US domestic or foreign policy, money does.

And so how does that play out in this country?!?

Let me count the ways...

IF logic were the watchword of this government, every kid coming out of high school would be literate, nummerate, and very capable of critical thinking.

That this does not happen, is done deliberately, in order to create a permanent underclass, for the rest of us to "have to take care of"for the rest of their lives.

Because they are incapable of reason, and are dependent upon government services, they are more easily swayed toward a certain end by government propaganda, and that ... is just where the US government wants them to be.

If logic were the watchword of this government, our money would be backed by something of intrinsic value, which at the moment, it is not, and has not been since Nixon took the US off the gold standard in 1971. Nixon's Colossal Monetary Error; the verdict 40 years later.

If logic were the watchword of this government, there would be no "pay to play" corruption schemes, because the finances of ALL Federal government officials would be put into a blind trust for the duration of their service.

And finally, if logic were the watchword of this government, there would be no more hegemonic wars to attempt to keep the value of US paper money in tact; and there are countries around the world which are leaving the US dollar in droves, toward other "baskets" of currencies, particularly the BRICS nations; Russia and China are becoming "fiscally allergic" to doing any business transactions in the US dollar, and are working diligently to ensure that the divorce from the US dollar is ultimately final, and complete.

Russia's bid to ditch the US dollar is working slowly, but obstacles remain.

Diteching the US dollar emerges as popular 2019 Market Fix Call.

And to all those "alphabet soup agency" personnel tasked/cursed with reading this site, please remember; at best, I am, simply, just a very minor annoyance,and the polar antithesis of a "threat."

Unfortunately, the real "threat" to this country, comes from how those in the Bowels of Power in DC, who choose to use the power of its military to enmesh the world with endless wars, expropriating natural resources to which the US and its corporate money junkies have absolutely no moral right, and slaughtering those people who have the misfortune to live over, or around, those resources.

And I have to wonder; will those in the Federal Government, also have to have their faces scanned at the airport, before they can get on a plane?!?

I would almost be willing to bet, that the short answer to that question, would be, "HELL, no!!""
