U.S. Government is Demanding Details on Your Fertility, Bathing Habits, More

‘The potential for abuse is grave’

A top-flight legal team is protesting schemes by the U.S. Census
Bureau to demand, from millions of Americans, details about their
fertility.

And about their bathing habits.

And about their work commute.

And their utility costs.

And cognitive disabilities.

And mental disabilities.

And their marital history.

“In an age when the government has significant technological
resources at its disposal to not only carry out warrantless surveillance
on American citizens but also to harvest and mine that data for its own
dubious purposes, whether it be crime-mapping or profiling based on
race or religion, the potential for abuse is grave,” explained
constitutional attorney John W. Whitehead, president of The Rutherford
Institute and author of “Battlefield America: The War on the American
People.”

“Any attempt by the government to encroach upon the citizenry’s
privacy rights or establish a system by which the populace can be
targeted, tracked and singled out must be met with extreme caution. The
American Community Survey qualifies as a government program whose
purpose, while seemingly benign, raises significant constitutional
concerns.”

The organization said it is “pushing back” against the campaign by
the U.S. Census Bureau to collect “sensitive private information about
individuals, using the mandatory American Community Survey.”

“In addition to the already extensive and invasive list of personal
questions included on the ACS, the Census Bureau issued a notice of
proposed information collection seeking to add questions about each
household member’s level of certain disabilities, including mental
disabilities, and whether they have psychosocial, cognitive, or speech
disabilities,” the Rutherford report said.

“The bureau also seeks to ask about possession of electric vehicles,
use of solar panels, type of sewage disposal, and other matters.”

Those federal bureaucrats already had sought permission to demand
information about ‘each person’s sexual orientation and gender
identity,” and institute attorneys submitted formal public comments in
opposition.

It argued that the federal government’s “threats and intimidation
tactics” is a form of illegal compelled speech in violation of the First
Amendment. The moves also violate the right to privacy from government
intrusion under the Fourth Amendment, the institute charged.

The institute already has guidelines on its site for responding to
the intrusion, and has provided a form complaint letter for lodging
objections.

The ACS is that “highly invasive, ongoing monthly survey issued by
the U.S. Census Bureau to collect detailed housing and socioeconomic
data from about 3.5 million households each year.”

Through it, the government demands that Americans “provide the
government with extensive and sensitive information about each and every
person in their household, including their work schedules, their
physical disabilities and limitations, the number of automobiles kept at
the residence, and their access to phone-service and the internet. The
information collected by the ACS is not anonymous: the survey is to
contain the name, age, sex, race, and home address of each person at the
residence, along with their relationship to the person who fills out
the form and that person’s phone number.”

The report said the Census Bureau “repeatedly sends field
representatives to their homes at unannounced times to harass” people
who don’t respond as the government demands.

Those reports document how government agents “remained outside …
houses for hours while waiting for them to arrive home or come out, have
walked around their homes, and have talked to minor children when
parents were away.”

CNN Anchor Claims Dangerous Filthy Slums in America Are ‘Vibrant Expressions of Democracy’

Published

CNN host Fareed Zakaria aired an astonishing rant this past
weekend arguing that major US cities are filthy and dangerous because of
“democracy,” and that makes them more “vibrant.”

Zakaria was attempting to provide a counter argument to Tucker
Carlson’s recent report that Russia’s subways are nicer than America’s.

CNN host Fareed Zakaria asserts that democracy goes hand in hand with living in a complete shit hole, and argues dirtier and chaotic cities are more ‘vibrant’ than clean cities which are usually run by ‘authoritarians’. Report: https://t.co/1Pa2QGS8gL pic.twitter.com/tKKZW2PRRJ

Modernity.news reports: “American cities are expressions of democracy,” Zakaria asserted, claiming they are “places where people have to negotiate differences and find ways to live together, that makes them messier and dirtier and sometimes chaotic.”

He then argued “perhaps that is what has made these cities so vibrant and innovative, and why they have been at the forefront in making America the country that leads the world in economics, technology, culture and power.”

Is rampant crime, homelessness, and drug use part of said vibrancy?

Fact check. American cities were not shit holes when the country emerged as the envy of the world. 

Zakaria continued, “Carlson speaks enviously of cities like Tokyo, Singapore, Abu Dhabi and Dubai, and they are indeed wonderful in their own distinctive ways. But what’s striking about all of them is that they are somewhat tame and subdued. The product of authoritarian governments or conformist culture, or both. American cities are different.”

He appears to be seriously claiming that you cannot  have a clean and safe city without some kind of evil dictatorship overseeing it.

Zakaria continued “Carlson put forward a bizarre hodgepodge of assertions he thought the architecture, food and service in Moscow was better than in any American city. Really? Moscow?”

“Outside of a small historic center, it is filled with drab Soviet era concrete buildings. And while the food in Moscow can be quite good…Better than New York or San Francisco? You need to get out more” Zakaria concluded.

Has he been to San Francisco lately?
