Moratorium Demand: Muslim Activist Group Wants Biden to Ban Facial Recognition Technology

They claim it unfairly targets marginalized and over-surveilled groups in America—-like those patriots gathered to peacefully protest outside of the US Capitol on January 6th.

LOL! No, they aren’t defending patriots and so-called white nationalists. But, it sure would be a fun exercise if one of the Southern Poverty Law Centers latest “hate groups” contacted them and asked to be added to their coalition.

CAIR-Washington, Civil Rights Groups Call on Biden to Halt Federal Use of Facial Recognition Technology

Brianna Auffray, Esq., is the Legal and Policy Manager at CAIR Washington, where she uses legal and grassroots advocacy solutions to represent discriminated individuals. https://crosscut.com/author/brianna-auffray

(SEATTLE, WA, 2/17/21) – The Washington state chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Washington) today joined a coalition of more than 40 organizations calling on President Biden to take executive action imposing a federal moratorium on the use of facial recognition technology.

The letter, sent by CAIR-Washington, the ACLU, Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and Amnesty International, among others, urges the Biden administration to take three critical steps addressing the use of facial recognition technology by the government.

Those steps include:

~placing a moratorium on all federal government use of facial recognition technology and other forms of biometric technology; [by the way, biometric technology is what the Leftie refugee contractors claim is keeping us safe from refugee fraud—ed]

~preventing state and local governments from using federal funds to purchase or access the technology;

~supporting legislation that would codify into law the federal moratorium and place additional limitations on federal funding of the technology.

Read the full letter is here: https://www.aclu.org/letter/coalition-letter-president-biden-use-facial-recognition-technology

“The use of face surveillance gives the government massively-enhanced powers to identify, locate, and track individuals based on images of their faces,” said Brianna Auffray, Legal and Policy Manager at CAIR-Washington.

“Even if this technology is perfectly accurate—which it is not—the threat of this surveillance has an outsized impact on historically over-surveilled communities.” [Yeh! Like those white nationalists and America First patriots!—ed]

Trump Traitor Scarammuci Says RINOs Could Break Away from Republican Party

No, he doesn’t call himself a RINO (Republican in name only), I call him and the creeps at places like the Lincoln Project that, but that is who he is talking about.

Surely you remember Anthony Scaramucci, a supposed Trump loyalist, who lasted only a few days, a week, or whatever it was as a Trump White House Communications Director.

I still don’t understand why/how Trump had little ability to identify sleaze balls in his administration before they did damage to him.

(By the way, it is my view that President Trump’s greatest shortcoming was that somehow he, or those hiring the people, seemed only able to find people who did not have Trump’s, or our America First’s interests at heart.)

He was on Anderson Cooper last night saying that the never-Trumpers might have a convention in the fall to see if they will break away from the Republican Party.

Not a bad idea, leave the Republican Party to the America Firsters!

At Yahoo News:

President Trump’s former Director of Communications, Anthony Scaramucci, appeared on Anderson Cooper 360, Monday, to discuss the state of the Republican Party. Scaramucci, a lifelong Republican, claims there is a sizable faction of members of the GOP who are looking to create a new party.

This next line is amusing.  Does he really think that the 63% of surveyed Republicans want a new party that would follow Scaramucci and his ilk.

The 63% are Trumpers who want a new party!

“Listen, 63% of the surveyed Republicans say that they want a new party,” said Scarmucci. “I think there’s a large group of people in the party that are organizing now and are debating whether or not to have a faction inside the party or to literally spin out and have a fall convention for a new party as a precursor to the congressional midterms and then start slating candidates.”

Scaramucci believes that 10-15% of current GOP members would be willing to leave in disagreement with what the party has become under the previous administration.

He says that the majority of Republicans who love Trump “want to destroy democracy.”

“You can go with radical fringe Trumpism, where these people literally are signaling to you that they want to destroy your democracy,” said Scarmucci. “Or you can try to set up, people that really love the country, that have center-right values can try to set up something new.”

Hey, Scaramucci, if you start a new party will you promise to take Mitch McConnell and Liz Cheney with you!

It was for stories like this one that I created a special category here at ‘Frauds and Crooks’ entitled Political rats.

Day 4: President Trump’s Impeachment Defense Team was Superb

I didn’t see all of it, but what I saw was brilliant and exposed the Socialist Dems as liars and hypocrites for the world to see.

In fact, one could argue that the Democrats have done a great service by bringing this phony unconstitutional impeachment trial because there was so much shown on Day 4 that most Americans have never seen before— important facts—because the fake news has been hiding the truth from the country for over 4 years.

But, they succeeded in further driving a wedge to divide America, and maybe that was their goal.

Trump’s America First! followers will be more energized and eager to, shall I say—Fight back—after the crass and shameful attack on Donald Trump and on us!

To warm you up, see this bit of footage the lawyers for our President showed:

And, if you didn’t see it live yesterday, you should make watching the day’s legal arguments a priority this weekend.

Trump’s legal team eviscerated the Democrats.

Some great video showing the hypocrisy of Pelosi, Schumer, Raskin and the rest, was displayed in the first hour.  Some here at 46:20 and again at 57:50 (more throughout the day’s legal arguments).

 

 

The trial should wrap-up today, and once again President Trump will not be found guilty.

We will be watching, however, to see how many Republican Senators ignore the Constitution and the FACTS, display their hatred of the man (and us, his supporters), and vote to impeach Donald Trump.

If you find individual clips at Youtube for the various longer clips used by Trump’s lawyers, send the links my way.  We should have them handy to use throughout social media for years to come!

House Impeachment Leader Jamie Raskin, a Radical Socialist Democrat Rising Star

“He has been a dazzling force for justice…”

(Nancy Pelosi)

 

Update: Watch as Senator Mike Lee called out Raskin for submitting false evidence in impeachment charade yesterday.

And, he knows how to use a family tragedy at just the right time. His son committed suicide on New Years Eve.

Heck, get the book and Patriots might find some useful tips for how to steal our country back! We have fists too! https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/steal-this-country-alexandra-styron/1128187253

That is all I am going to say on that, and normally wouldn’t bother writing about weasel-like Dems, but because just yesterday on the first day of the unconstitutional impeachment trial of our President, led by Raskin, I wrote both at RRW and here about how important it was for you now to focus on your city/county and maybe state level (state level in some states, others are lost causes) as you FIGHT back.  Washington is lost for now.

And, I want to show you what fighting back might look like and knowing your enemy is step one.

But, first, as I started my research on Maryland Democrat Raskin I came across this story from 2018.  Raskin was on Martha’s Vineyard (of course) celebrating with the author of a book for young Americans—-Steal this Country!

Raskin is inspired by wildfire activism!  Gee, but only when the wildfire comes from the Left I suppose! He didn’t like that wildfire in the Capitol on January 6th as he ran for cover.

We don’t condone the violence, but you know January 6th scared the ____out of the likes of Raskin who is okay with social unrest when the Left is doing the rioting.

The Long Arc of Social Change

Raskin with the author of Steal this Country!

In the summer of 2017, about 60 students participated in Maryland congressman Jamie Raskin’s Democracy Summer workshop program. The following spring, those students helped to organize a school walkout protesting gun violence that mobilized thousands.

That kind of wildfire activism is what inspires Mr. Raskin and what motivated Vineyard author Alexandra Styron to write a handbook for young people on protest and engagement. Mr. Raskin and Ms. Styron united forces this week on the Vineyard to celebrate the release of Ms. Styron’s book, Steal this Country, and talk about their shared goal to mobilize youth for progressive causes.

Read it all here.

Now here is USA Today raving about Raskin:

His son died. A week later he survived the Capitol riots. Now, he’s leading the impeachment case against Donald Trump.

You can read the whole gushing article yourself.  Here are a couple of snips:

“My family suffered an unspeakable trauma on New Year’s eve a week ago,” Raskin said early Jan. 7, after the vote count resumed and neared completion. “Let us stop pouring salt in the wounds of America for no reason at all. Let us start healing our beloved land and our wonderful people.”

[….]

Raskin was “deeply involved” in preparation for the first trial, Schiff said. Raskin was “extraordinarily valuable” in discussions of possible charges and drafting the articles of impeachment that determine how the case is presented, Schiff said.

“He has been a dazzling force for justice, demonstrating outstanding love of country, dedication to our democracy and loyalty to our oath as he works to ensure that no one is above the law,” Pelosi told USA TODAY.

[….]

Despite his affable reputation, Scanlon says, Raskin is no pushover. He remains unperturbed during chaotic hearings when lawmakers sometimes heckle one another.

“He’s tough as nails,” Scanlon said. “It comes from pure civics, patriotism.”

Know the enemy, they are setting Raskin up as the next great gift to America!

I am finally getting to what I really wanted to say, but I had to set the stage.

What can you do? 

You can do what I was stunned to see any Republican group do—you can make fun of Raskin and other Lefties wherever you live!.

Remember! Obama’s idol Saul Alinsky writing in ‘Rules for Radicals’  (if you have never read it, you better!) told his adoring hard liners that ridicule is the most powerful political weapon.

Here, much to my delight, is what the Montgomery County Maryland Republican Party created and posted yesterday.  Raskin represents Maryland’s 8th Congressional District.

Looks like some Republicans are willing to play in the big league!

See it now before Youtube takes it down.  Like it, and make it go viral!  (Hat tip: Gail)

 

Hint to MoCo Republicans, make sure the video is on Rumble if it isn’t already.

I have created a new category here at Frauds and Crooks entitled ‘Know the Enemy‘ to go along with my category ‘Fight Back.’
