“The proposal is part of an initiative to create a Health Advanced Research Projects Agency (HARPA), which would be located inside the Health and Human Services Department,” reports the Daily Caller. “The new agency would have a separate budget and the president would be responsible for appointing its director.”
HARPA would employ “breakthrough technologies with high specificity and sensitivity for early diagnosis of neuropsychiatric violence,” including Apple Watches, Amazon Echo and Google Home.
In other words, data collected from devices that spy on private conversations and closely monitor user behavior would be used to strip Americans of their fundamental rights.
“Though the proposal is starting as a voluntary data collection scheme allegedly aimed at finding warning signs of mental illness, we all know so-called “voluntary” government programs often become mandatory at the drop of a hat,” comments Chris Menahan.
According to the Washington Post, Trump has reacted “very positively” to the idea.
One wonders if Trump has any idea of the slippery slope this would entail, or whether he was sold on the idea because Ivanka cried.
The proposal bears some similarities to Communist China’s social credit score system, where citizens’ behavior is tightly surveilled and then met with rewards or punishments.
As we reported last month, the Chinese government bragged about preventing 2.5 million “discredited entities” from purchasing plane tickets and 90,000 people from buying high speed train tickets in the month of July alone.

Liberal Pundit: Chicago Mayor Would Love It If Democrat POTUS Proposed TOTAL Gun Ban
This article was sourced from NewsBustersWhen it comes to guns, want to know what the Democrats have in their heart of hearts? Liberalpundit Amy Walter let the cat out of the bag on Bret Baier's Special Report on Tuesday night.
When Baier pointed out that as many people were shot and killed in Chicago last weekend as in the recent West Texas mass shooting, Walter said:
"If a Democratic president said, let's ban all handguns, all firearms of all sorts, the Democratic mayor of Chicago would be, 'great, sign me up. I'm happy to do it. And you can’t sell guns anywhere to, in, or around any state, they would be happy to do it!'"
You have to believe that a Chicago mayor reflects the views of many Democrats at all levels of government. And indeed, Walter said that support for an entire panoply of gun control proposals is "national" among Democrats. Note also that, apropos of banning the sale of guns everywhere, Walter said "they," not just the Chicago mayor, "would be happy to do it."
Something to keep in mind the next time you hear Dem politicians claiming they're only interested in "common-sense" gun safety measures.
Here's the transcript.
Fox News Channel Special Report 9/3/19 6:54 pm EDT
BRET BAIER: What’s interesting, and obviously these mass shooting events have gotten a lot of attention and they have become epidemic-like. But also not talked about was Chicago this weekend. Thirty-five shootings, seven fatalities. It didn’t even rise to the level of major coverage. It was the same number of people who died in Odessa. And that is something that doesn’t get talked about a lot either.
AMY WALTER: It doesn’t. Although I suspect if you asked the mayors of major cities that have a lot of gun violence, they would support every single thing on that list [expanded background checks, red flag laws, gun buybacks, assault weapons ban, handgun sale ban.] That's national.
BAIER: But I mean, Chicago is a place run by Democrats and has a gun control --
WALTER: That’s right. So if they said let’s ban — if right now a Democratic president said let’s ban all handguns, all firearms of all sorts, the Democratic mayor of Chicago would be like, great, sign me up. I’m happy to do it. And you can’t sell guns anywhere to, in, or around any state, they would be happy to do it!
Kroger ‘respectfully’ asks shoppers to stop openly carrying guns in stores
This article was sourced from NYpost
Kroger is following Walmart’s lead.
The Ohio-based supermarket giant on Tuesday asked customers to stop openly carrying firearms in their stores, just hours after Walmart made a similar request.
“Kroger is respectfully asking that customers no longer openly carry firearms into our stores, other than authorized law enforcement officers,” Jessica Adelman, group vice president of corporate affairs, said in a statement.
“We are also joining those encouraging our elected leaders to pass laws that will strengthen background checks and remove weapons from those who have been found to pose a risk for violence.”
In its statement, Walmart requested that their customers not openly carry firearms.
In an open letter from CEO Doug McMillon to employees the chain also said it would stop selling some types of ammunition.
The change came in the wake of several mass shootings — including one last month at an El Paso, Texas, Walmart that left 22 people dead.
Kroger stopped selling guns last year.
Democrat’s Gun Control Narrative After Odessa Refuted With FACTS
This article was sourced from TheFederalistpapers
The cartoon below has to be one of the dumbest cartoons from the left on gun control of all time:
The left wing anti-gun lunatics don’t bother to fact check themselves. So we’ll do it for them.
The horrific Dayton, El Paso and Odessa shootings has turned Democrats out in droves to demand more gun control. Except, there is not one piece of gun control legislation that would have stopped the killers. Not. One. Single. Law.
Why is it that Democrats can’t seem to understand that? Or is it that they do, and simply want to put more gun control into place that they know will only infringe upon the rights of law-abiding gun owners?
Criminals don’t obey the current gun control laws. Hell, criminals don’t even obey the laws we have that ban murder. Democrats think criminals are going to obey any new gun control laws they put into place?
They aren’t that stupid, but their followers toe the line, and the lame stream media is complicit.
There are supposedly 90 MILLION law-abiding gun owners in the United States, possibly even more. These are people from all races, genders, economic statuses – all walks of life. Democrats can’t seem to grasp that the 2nd Amendment protects ALL of them.
Unfortunately, there are some on the right who are also pushing for more gun control, even though it would have done nothing to stop the horrific killings.
It’s time America have a serious discussion about the 2nd Amendment; the fundamental human right to self defense and how firearms protect the innocent from the evil.
Facts don’t seem to matter to Democrats but there are facts everywhere that prove their gun control push is wrong – ALWAYS.
Here are the actual stats on murders around the world. Not quite what this cartoon says now is it?
Of course, they bring up suicide without mentioning that Japan has one of the highest suicide rates in the world yet *gasp* NO FIREARMS!
That just couldn’t possibly make sense to the gun control lobby. It MUST be the firearm that causes people to commit suicide. It couldn’t possibly be that the person has some serious issues they don’t think they can get help to resolve. Nope, must be the firearm.
They never mention that the number of times firearms are used in self defense exponentially outnumbers the number of actual deaths in which firearms are involved. That would be giving readers too much truthiness. Something the gun control lobby just can’t have.
Even the Centers for Disease Control maintained, in a $10 million study pushed by one of Obama’s Executive Orders back in 2012, that the use of firearms for self defense is an ‘important crime deterrent.’
And the final photo in the cartoon is just disgusting. It was thanks to 3% of the armed population that the British tyrants were overthrown. The same British who wanted to take our guns away.
It is exactly that reason the 2nd Amendment was so important to the Founding Fathers, not because they were ‘gun toting wackos’ as the morons who wrote this cartoon claim.
And of course, these hoplophobes are referring to semi-automatic rifles as ‘assault rifles’ to once again prove how ignorant they are.
And of course, this dumb cartoon based on false information means we MUST amend the 2nd Amendment. *hurl*
If the person who created this cartoon was around during the Revolution, we’d probably still be under the rule of a Queen.

How The 2020 Democrats Want To Restrict Gun Rights
This article was sourced from DailyCaller
This weekend saw yet another mass shooting in the United States. Seven people were killed and over 20 injured.
The 2020 Democratic presidential candidates have made it known that they support gun policy reform — but can they agree on how?
Beto O’Rourke came out this weekend to show his frustration at the second shooting in his home state of Texas, saying that he supported mandatory gun buybacks for all assault rifles.
“I want to be really clear…Americans who own AR-15s AK-47s, will have to sell them to the government.” (RELATED: Beto O’Rourke Drops F-Bomb In Live CNN Interview)
But he is not the only one who supports the banning of assault rifles. Every 2020 candidate has said they support such a ban.
Tune in to see what the 2020 presidential democratic candidates want to do if elected.
