Illinois’ House just passed a bill that criminalizes recording private conversations with citizens, and it also imposes harsher penalties for recording private conversations with police. The bill is rife with vague language, the last thing we need right now as the country riots over the lack of police accountability. The Resident discusses.

CONGRESS PASSES BILL THAT GIVES POLICE UNLIMITED ACCESS TO CITIZENS’ PRIVATE COMMUNICATIONS

Featured Image: Thanx to David Dees

Truth and Action

Congress has just passed the Intelligence Authorization Act for 2015, which grants the executive branch not only the ability to spy on American citizens private communications, but also the legal authority to turn that information over to local law enforcement.

All of this can be done without any court order being granted, all in the name of ‘fighting terror’, of course. . . . Read Complete Report

The Milk Police are Coming!

Liberty Briefing 12/01/2014 08:12:46 am

By Geoffrey Pike | Monday, December 1st, 2014

There is another battle between the Institute for Justice and a government agency over milk – something that is becoming more common.

Government (state and federal) is heavily involved in the milk industry and I have written about the government’s war against raw milk before. But this latest story doesn’t involve raw milk. It is pasteurized milk. This is a government war over words. . . . Read Complete Report

BREAKING!! FAKE CELLPHONE TOWERS

Whose interceptor is it? Who are they, that’s listening to calls around military bases? Is it just the U.S.

Investigator Says He Found Multiple ‘Fake Cell Towers’ Near White House, Russian Embassy

From THE BLAZE 

Think about the phone conversations you’ve had in the last 48 hours. Is there anything personal or sensitive you wouldn’t want a stranger to hear or record?

Now imagine the cell phone conversations that took place about the Islamic State this week between lawmakers, their staff members and anyone who testified on the Hill. Think any sensitive information or key plans were discussed during those phone calls?

An investigator looking into the claims that “fake cell towers” are popping up all over the country says he discovered several active sites just in the last 48 hours within feet of the White House, around the Russian Embassy and covering the Senate buildings where key Islamic State hearings took place this week. . . .

Fake Cell Towers Allow the NSA and Police to Keep Track of You

From Newsweek By

The Internet is abuzz with reports of mysterious devices sprinkled across America—many of them on military bases—that connect to your phone by mimicking cell phone towers and sucking up your data. There is little public information about these devices, but they are the new favorite toy of government agencies of all stripes; everyone from the National Security Agency to local police forces are using them.

These fake towers, known as “interceptors,” were discovered in July by users of the CryptoPhone500, one of the ultra-secure cell phones released after Edward Snowden’s leaks about NSA snooping. . . . Read Complete Report

Robot Skills and Ills

Robot Skills and Ills

 

The world of robots got even more interesting and foreboding this week. Below are two stories that, especially taken in contrast to one another, are amazing. Both stories come to us through Hearst & Electronic Products

Ping Pong Playing Robot (or is that “PingBot“?)

This first story (video) is interesting in that this guy, Ulf Hoffman, built  this thing in their garage and wrote the operating software from scratch. The problem is I wouldn’t be able to play to a forehand or backhand. You can read the full story HERE

Along Came CUPID

short for Chaotic Unmanned Personal Intercept Drone, is an app controlled six-pronged-copter flying drone that packs an 80,000 volt Taser dart ― legally surpassing policemen’s 50,000 volt Tasers.

And this armed drone, billed as a “technology demonstration”, is designed to identify and tazer suspects.

“CUPID is simple: once an intruder is spotted on a property, CUPID will fly over and transmit an image of their face. If the property owner does not grant clearance, then CUPID will issue an audio warning before tazering any uncompliant persons into submission, then wait the authorities to arrive. ”

I am pretty sure, police will be the first to fire the tazer on this thing and government will be the first to use its surveillance function. When this cupid’s arrow finds you, it won’t be love in the air, it will be screams and urine.

Want to Live Off the Grid? Don’t Try It In LA County, CA

Despite California Statehouse Mandates for “green energy” production, LA County is going after folks living off the grid in Antelope Valley. Is this a “Blazing Saddles” land grab? Municipal power and water monopoly? Or just plain heavy handed version of “We don’t want your kind here!”

Lt. Tony Ryan, board member for L.E.A.P. (Law Enforcement Against Prohibition) and retired Denver police officer after 36 years of service, says;

“The War on drugs is a disaster for law enforcement. A total failure at reducing use or crime, that costs billions of dollars while making the problem worse and enriching drug dealers.”

One or more representatives of L.E.A.P. will present the case against pot prohibition (and other drugs) this weekend in Merrillville, Indiana.
