Government-Wide Facial Recognition Software Usage is Under the Microscope.

Following the success of a recent effort to have the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) scrap its facial recognition program, privacy advocates are now targeting other agencies that employ the technology.

Public interest groups and legislators from both parties reacted angrily to reports last month that the IRS required people to upload selfies for an identity verification program managed by ID.me. Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) called on the IRS to end the program, while Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) sought a blanket prohibition on the IRS collecting biometric data. The Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) and the Media Alliance have joined the chorus of public interest groups calling for the IRS to abandon its plan.

Their advertising was a big hit. The IRS announced on February 7 that it will not utilize a third-party business to use face recognition to authenticate new accounts.

The IRS isn’t the only target of the privacy campaigners. EPIC and a coalition of 40 other interest groups sent a letter to other government agencies on Feb. 14 urging them to halt their facial recognition programs.

“Using a third-party face verification service also causes unnecessary security risks that are facilitated by government authorities, pushing people to pass over biometric data to a private corporation.” “Fraudulent activity is increasingly targeting biometric data, notably faceprints,” the organisations warned.

“The use of faces as a credential to access sensitive information by federal and state authorities is likely to result in large-scale data breaches of a credential that cannot be easily updated.”

Senators Ron Wyden (D-Oregon), Cory Booker (D-N.J.), and Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) joined the chorus a day later with a letter to the Department of Labor requesting it to assist state unemployment offices in ditching ID.me.

According to the letter, more than half of the states require job seekers to first create an ID.me account before filing for unemployment benefits. After the start of the COVID-19 epidemic, when most of their business moved online, government agencies’ usage of facial recognition accelerated.

In their letter, Wyden, Booker, and Warren said, “It is alarming that so many state and federal government agencies have outsourced their key digital infrastructure to the private sector.” “One of the most notable companies in the market, ID.me,… utilizes facial recognition software and lacks transparency about its processes and outcomes, which is particularly troubling.”

A request for comment from ID.me about the public campaign against it was not returned.

The business introduced a new way to authenticate identity without using computerized facial recognition on February 8.

“We’ve listened to user complaints concerning facial recognition software and are implementing this essential adjustment,” said ID.me CEO Blake Hall. “We’ve added an option for users to check directly with a human agent to guarantee customers have even more choice and control over their personal data.”

“In recent weeks, we’ve tweaked our procedure so that government institutions can provide consumers the option of verifying their identification with an expert human agent rather than a selfie check. This configuration is currently available to agencies. Beginning March 1, all ID.me users will be able to erase their selfie or photo from their ID.me account.”

Not everyone agrees that the government should forsake facial recognition. “The IRS was wrong to cave in to frenzy,” the Information Technology & Innovation Foundation (ITIF) remarked on Feb. 8.

“As tax season begins, it is sad to learn that the IRS has caved in to advocacy groups opposed to any and all forms of facial recognition,” the ITIF said. “Every year, the IRS tries to prevent billions of dollars in return fraud, identity theft, and other financial crimes that harm ordinary Americans, and more facial recognition would have been a step in the right direction.”

Those in favor of biometric data collection by large corporations, and government agencies are merely consumers concerned with ease of access. They lack a fundamental understanding of the implications of releasing open ended technology coupled with continuous innovation. The Fourth Industrial Revolution is a way of describing the blurring of boundaries between the physical, digital, and biological worlds. It’s a fusion of advances in artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, the Internet of Things (IoT), 3D printing, genetic engineering, quantum computing, and other technologies. It’s the collective force behind many products and services that are fast becoming indispensable to modern life. Things like GPS systems that suggest the fastest route to a destination, voice-activated virtual assistants such as Apple’s Siri, personalized Netflix recommendations, and Facebook’s ability to recognize your face and tag you in a friend’s photo.

The person who labeled today’s advances as a new revolution was Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum and author of the book, The Fourth Industrial Revolution. In a 2016 article, Schwab wrote that “like the revolutions that preceded it, the Fourth Industrial Revolution has the potential to raise global income levels and improve the quality of life for populations around the world.”

Let’s not forget that Klaus was also the author of ‘COVID-19: The Great Reset‘. Directing his attention to a post pandemic paradigm shift. In which the very driving force behind our economic growth comes from advancements in technological cultivation of nature. Once Klaus got his message across, the royal family posted a two minute video displaying their support in the World Economic Fourm’s intentions. The end of the video displays the photo below, i’ll let those with keen eyes find what’s hidden here.

What most fail to grasp is that when all of the leading technologies of our civilization are combined, we’ve entered dangerous territory. If you combine advanced robotics, and artificial intelligence alone you’ll have a soulless person. There are kids playing around with AI code in their rooms nightly. This isn’t some far off threat, it’s a golden ticket for the less fortunate who want to make it big. Learning just two programming languages is enough to make six figures if you’ve got an extensive portfolio.

Why are tech companies paying so much for programmers? They’re in a rush to find the pinnacle of efficiency and innovation. But they never ask, what’s on the other side of that door? Once society reaches peak efficiency, Christians will already be subject to persecution. Because why would they bow to Jesus when they’ve got all the tricks up their sleeves? They will be taught to believe that we haven’t looked at life from their point of view. Everyone will paint the Christian man as evil for simply detesting human nature.

The technology comes with a price, if you don’t play by the same rules as the UNWEFLucis Trust, etc. you’re going to be a second class citizen. The elite have cast their shadows on civilization to make their mark during each and every industrial revolution. Today we see Elon Musk trying to influence the crypto market by entertaining careless young traders. While at the same time, trying to make a breakaway civilization to get to mars.

“The Fourth Industrial Revolution, finally, will change not only what we do but also who we are. It will affect our identity and all the issues associated with it: our sense of privacy, our notions of ownership, our consumption patterns, the time we devote to work and leisure, and how we develop our careers, cultivate our skills, meet people, and nurture relationships”

Klaus Schwab

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is reshaping every sphere of human life — from government to commerce; from education to healthcare. It is even impacting human values, opportunities, relationships and identities by modifying virtual as well as physical worlds of human beings. It is in my firm belief that Christians won’t get access to much of the technologies to come. By choice of course, because that is the nature of the puzzle God has laid out for us. We’ve been given free will to live for the world and repent there after. But to be born again, solidifies your role in this world. We’ve identified ourselves based on the values the bible emphasizes, and used them for the foundation of our very identities. To walk away from that is the unthinkable. Stay inquisitive in the word of God, and the world around you.

On Feb. 13, police made further arrests to clear a protest barricade at a key Ontario border crossing, known as the Canada–US crossing, that connects Windsor and Detroit.

The first arrest was made on Feb. 12 at the Ambassador Bridge, when a 27-year-old man was detained “for a criminal offense in relation to the demonstration.” Each day, hundreds of millions of dollars in trade pass through the international border crossing between Canada and the United States.

On February 13, more arrests were made. Police said they’ve made more than 25 arrests, the majority of which are for criminal mischief.

After a court ruling on Feb. 11 gave police broader power to clear the roadblock, police began moving in on the morning of Feb. 12.

Since February 6, protesters have been occupying the site, demanding an end to COVID-19 regulations and restrictions.

On February 12, a number of police units, including Windsor Police, Ontario Provincial Police, the RCMP, and other regional forces, arrived at the scene. The police were highly armed, and armoured trucks and police cars were present at the scene.

On Feb. 12, the majority of the heavy trucks left the site, and police forced demonstrators away from the main road leading to the international bridge.

Barricades have been erected on the road to prevent demonstrators from approaching the bridge.

At the demonstration site, some protester automobiles were fined and towed.

“In the demonstration area, enforcement will continue, and there will be zero tolerance for illegal activities. The public is advised to avoid the area,” Windsor Police said in a tweet on Feb. 13 morning.

The protest, according to Sam Helou, a Windsor local who owns a parking lot near the border crossing, is far from ended.

“They’re all still coming. I’ve got a car right here … from British Columbia. He was in Ottawa for a whole week and he just came here right now. This other guy here with the flag is from Scarborough, Ontario.”  While standing in his parking lot, he stated, “He came all the way here to protest, and they’re all telling me it’s not over yet,”

Helou stated that he supports the demonstration because “it is about liberties.”

“The government cannot take away our freedoms like they have. Enough, we complied with everything, we suffered enough, ” he stated.

Due to police roadblocks, the border crossing remains restricted.

Police will decide when cross-border traffic can resume, according to Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens, who has called the protest blockade illegal.

This is one of several international border crossings that have been blocked by protesters in recent days. Protesters have also blocked border crossings in Manitoba, Alberta, and British Columbia, demanding an end to COVID-19 requirements.

Premier Doug Ford of Ontario announced a state of emergency in his province on Feb. 11 in response to the continuous protests.

Truckers’ protests against the federal government’s mandate that all truck drivers crossing the Canada–US border get vaccinated for COVID-19 sparked the demonstrations.

Many supporters joined in as truckers created massive convoys to come to Ottawa in late January to protest, and the demonstration expanded to include all COVID-19 regulations and restrictions. Many demonstrators have remained in Ottawa, stating that they will not leave until the government repeals all of its directives.

Protests in Ottawa and at the border are coordinated separately.

It’s clear that these police are simply putting on their uniforms for the paycheck, because any true public servant would show full support for the liberty of the public. There’s no telling what kind of garbage propaganda is being force fed down the throats of these deranged officers. They lack the minuscule required level of understanding of their surroundings to realize their own personal freedoms are at stake. Soon enough, the fruits of their actions will come to fruition and they’ll wish they had never stopped these demonstrations.

The actions taken by these Ottawa police officers are a direct display of their views. Surely, there are many officers that seek to do the right thing and support freedom loving citizens; however at the end of the day their orders trickle down from the top where the globalist sell outs reside. Nevertheless the demonstrations will continue until staged violence occurs, or the tyrannical COVID-19 vaccination mandates are lifted. Many European countries are “walking back” their restrictions, but fail to mention that they don’t apply to the unvaccinated. This is the foreshadowing of future persecution on freedom loving citizens globally. Stay inquisitive in the word of God, and the world around you.
