China’s “social credit sytem” is a real-life “Black Mirror” nightmare.

By Megan Palin
News.com.au
September 19, 2018China’s chilling dictatorship is moving quickly to introduce social scorecards by which all citizens will be monitored 24/7 and ranked on their behavior. The Communist Party’s plan is for every one of its 1.4 billion citizens to be at the whim of a dystopian social credit system, and it’s on track to be fully operational by the year 2020.An active pilot program has already seen millions of people each assigned a score out of 800 and either reap its benefits or suffer its consequences — depending on which end of the scale they sit.Under the social credit scheme, points are lost and gained based on readings from a sophisticated network of 200 million surveillance cameras — a figure set to triple in 18 months.The program has been enabled by rapid advances in facial recognition, body scanning and geo-tracking.The data is combined with information collected from individuals’ government records — including medical and educational — along with their financial and internet browsing histories. Overall scores can go up and down in “real time” dependent on the person’s behavior, but they can also be affected by people they associate with.“If your best friend or your dad says something negative about the government, you’ll lose points too,” the Australian Broadcasting Company (ABC) reports.

The mandatory “social credit” system was first announced in 2014 in a bid to reinforce the notion that “keeping trust is glorious and breaking trust is disgraceful,” according to a government document.

In an episode on the ABC’s “Foreign Correspondent,” financial credit system Jie Cong, Tianjin general manager for financial credit system Alipay, summarized the system in black and white.

“If people keep their promises they can go anywhere in the world,” he said. “If people break their promises they won’t be able to move an inch.”

Model citizens

Under the system, those deemed to be “top citizens” are rewarded bonus points.

The benefits of being ranked on the higher end of the scale include waived deposits on hotels and rental cars, VIP treatment at airports, discounted loans, priority job applications and fast-tracking to the most prestigious universities.

Dandan, a young mother and marketing professional, is proud of her high score. If she keeps it up her infant son will be more likely to get into a top school.

“China likes to experiment in this creative way…I think people in every country want a stable and safe society,” she said.

“We need a social credit system. We hope we can help each other, love each other and help everyone to become prosperous.”

Bottom of the scale

But it doesn’t take much to end up on the wrong side of the scale, with an estimated 10 million people already paying the price of a low rating.

Jaywalking, late payments on bills or taxes, buying too much alcohol or speaking out against the government each cost citizens points.

Other mooted punishable offenses include spending too long playing video games, wasting money on frivolous purchases and posting on social media, according to Business Insider.

Penalties range from losing the right to travel by plane or train, social media account suspensions and being barred from government jobs.

Chinese journalist Liu Hu is one of the millions who has already amassed a low social credit rating. Liu Hu was arrested, jailed and fined after he exposed official corruption.

“The government regards me as an enemy,” Liu Hu told the ABC.

He is now banned from traveling by plane or fast train. His social media accounts with millions of followers have been suspended. He struggles to find work.

“This kind of social control is against the tide of the world. The Chinese people’s eyes are blinded and their ears are blocked. They know little about the world and are living in an illusion,” Hu said.

Seventeen people who refused to carry out military service were last year barred from enrolling in higher education, applying for high school or continuing their studies, Beijing News reported.

Uighur poet and filmmaker Tahir Hamut, who fled to the US, told the ABC that China’s surveillance system “suddenly ramped up after the end of 2016.”

“Since then, advanced surveillance technology which we’ve never seen, never experienced, never heard of, started appearing,” he said.

Which list.


Communist China will use a ‘social credit score’ to rank its citizens and give those with the most favoured behaviour perks

  • The project rates citizens based on their behaviour – both positive and negative  
  • Benefits include priority public housing, travel visas and job promotions
  • Those with a negative score can be blacklisted and not allowed to get a flight 
  • The system is made possible by the growing network of surveillance that uses artificial intelligence to identify people and vehicles  

By Joe Pinkstone
Daily Mail.co.uk

All of China‘s 1.4 billion citizens are about to be put under greater scrutiny as the country prepares to launch its ‘social credit score’ scheme.

The project rates citizens based on their behaviour, and those who do not play by the rules are added to a list that prohibits them from certain luxuries.

Fears are growing regarding the ethical implications of scheme, with some questioning the morality of the big-brother culture.

The government is likely to use its rapidly growing surveillance network to enforce the system, with some academics growing concerned that it may be manipulated to enforce the ideology of the ruling Communist party.

Benefits of cooperating with the state include priority public housing, travel visas and job promotions.

One journalist says he is banned from sending his children to private school or buying property after a court ordered him to apologize for an unfavourable tweet about the regime.

This is all made possible by the ever-increasing network of surveillance cameras in the Asian country.

Xu Li, CEO of Sensetime, one of China’s most successful artificial intelligence companies, said: ‘It can recognise more than 4,000 vehicles.

‘We can tell whether it is an adult, a child, male or female.’

China launched a pilot version of the scheme in 2010 in a province just north of Shanghai.

This pilot system provides incentives for those with a high social credit score such as priority access to public housing, travel visas and job promotions.

The system is currently labelled as optional but the Chinese government plans to make it mandatory and publicly available by 2020.

Liu Hu, a journalist in China, told CBS News that when he tried to book a flight, he was told he was banned from flying because he was on a list of untrustworthy people.

Mr Liu was issued with a court order to apologise for a series of tweets he wrote and was then told his apology was insincere.

As a result his score dropped and he found himself on the list of undesirables.

‘I can’t buy property. My child can’t go to a private school,’ he said.

‘You feel you’re being controlled by the list all the time.’ (Note: How Nazi – ish)

According to Ken Dewoskin, an expert in China’s economic and political culture, revealed in an interview the damage and implications this system could have.

He says how the new scoring system truly works is kept secret and could be easily abused by the government.

Mr Dewoskin said: ‘The government and the people running the plan would like it to go as deeply as possible to determine how to allocate benefits and also how to impact and shape their behaviour.’

The system has raised many ethical concerns around the world, with scholars debating the morale issues created by such a universal and publicly accessible database.

Experts published research last year in the journal Marketing Intelligence and Planning which looked at how the gamification of life would affect people.

They claim the system could be manipulated by the government to create universal conformity to the ideologies presented by the ruling communist party.  

Audrey Murrell, Director of the David Berg Center for Ethics and Leadership at the University of Pittsburgh writes in an article for Forbes: ‘It is one thing to reward positive behaviour, but one could argue that the introduction of penalties for ‘untrustworthiness’ produces consequences for lack of adherence to government-mandated social behaviours.’

China’s Orwellian Social Credit System is expaning overseas

By Michael Grothaus

The system assigns Chinese citizens a social credit score based on their social, political, and economic behavior. A bad score affects a Chinese citizen’s ability to travel via train or plane and can even stop a person from getting a good job or staying at a nice hotel. The system works by using big data, AI, and mass surveillance to monitor citizens in whatever they do. And now, the social credit system is extending outside of China’s borders.

report from the Australian Strategic Policy Institute says China’s social credit system will begin expanding past China’s borders to monitor Chinese citizens wherever they are globally. The system will also start applying to international companies that do business in China. As a result, the social credit system is not just shaping the behaviors of Chinese citizens beyond their border but international companies as well. If an international business gets a low social credit score, it could lead to fines for the company, higher interest rates for loans, or even the blacklisting of its products.

The threat of a negative social credit ranking recently pressured international airlines based in the U.S. and Australia to remove Taiwan on their international websites. It is feared that as China continues to roll out its social credit rating to businesses, those companies will feel they have no choice but to adhere to the Chinese Communist Party’s ideologies and worldview if they want to keep operating in the country.

Facebook has confirmed that it now ranks some of its users on a trustworthiness scale, prompting comparisons to China’s Social Credit System.

The social media giant reportedly assigns users with a reputation score between zero and one. According to the Washington Post, who broke the story, Facebook has been developing the system over the past year.

It forms part of a wider crackdown on fake news and misinformation, a scheme first started by Facebook in 2016.

The Facebook rating score has been developed to combat users attempting to game the system by flagging posts that they do not agree with as untrue.
It’s “not uncommon for people to tell us something is false simply because they disagree with the premise of a story or they’re intentionally trying to target a particular publisher,” Tessa Lyons, Facebook’s product manager in charge of fighting misinformation, told the Washington Post.The revelation has drawn widespread criticism. Matthew McKenna, VP EMEA at SecurityScorecard, described the news as “concerning”. He called for greater transparency about how the score is calculated and for users to be able to view their score to improve it.

“For any scoring or rating system to be effective, whether for business or people, these foundational principles are a must,” he said.

Made in China

Morten Brogger, CEO of encrypted communications platform Wire, compared it to a social rating system being developed in China that makes use of big data analytics.

“Refusing to be on a level playing field with customers in this manner is reminiscent of a proposed Chinese Social Credit System, which will give people a ‘social credit score’ based on their interactions with digital applications,” he said.

“Whilst this method is state-run in China, it is now being privatised in the West.”

While the Social Credit System is planned to be fully implemented by 2020, there are already some pilot systems in place.

Most of these involve financial credit ratings, but apps such as Honest Shanghai go much further. The app uses facial recognition and national ID numbers to gather data and assign them a public credit score.

According to Shanghai’s Commission of Economy and Information deputy director Shao Zhiqing, the goal of the app is to help “residents learn they’ll be rewarded if they’re honest”.

The app rewards good citizens by offering discounts and other rewards for good behaviour.

It has drawn comparisons to an episode of Black Mirror, which is set in a world where people rate each other on every interaction. Better ratings improve a person’s socioeconomic status, whereas bad ratings can cause their prospects to nosedive.

Facebook rating score: Room for improvement

Brogger says that a lack of transparency could be harmful to Facebook’s already fragile reputation.

“Pigeonholing users into ‘trust’ categories is a dangerous game to play, and Facebook is playing with fire if they continue to shut users out,” he said.

“Gaining user trust is make or break for any organisation. Companies need to ensure that the applications they use are fully open sourced and independently audited, so their software can be held to account if they are to instill that trust.”

Note: Nothing to worry about. NSA and the CIA are already doing it. Question: How do you hold software to account? What a genius! That would be an expert. Let’s get back to “open source”.

SEPT. 11 TERROR ATTACKS: 17 YEARS LATER by Michael Cutler

SEPT. 11 TERROR ATTACKS: 17 YEARS LATER

The disturbing allegiances of the Democratic Party.

 

Preamble by the author:

My article for today is predicated on the undeniable fact that the Damoclean Sword of terrorism still hangs over America as we remember the terror attacks of 9/11.

Nevertheless, the “leadership” of the Democratic Party insist on ordering “Shields Down” by demanding the termination of immigration law enforcement.

The 9/11 Commission identified multiple failures of the immigration system as the vulnerabilities that terrorists, including the 9/11 hijackers exploited, enabling them to enter the United States in the first place and then embed themselves so that they could hide in plain sight as they made their deadly preparations.

 As you read my article you must not forget how Democratic politicians have created “Sanctuary Cities” and “Sanctuary States” that operate in open defiance of our immigration laws, create safe havens for foreign nationals, from all over the world, who would do America and Americans great harm.  This includes foreign criminals as well as international terrorists and so-called “sleeper agents.”  Sanctuary Cities create potential “staging areas” for such criminals and terrorists providing them with access to our entire country and all Americans from coast to coast and border to border.

Ignorance is not bliss.  Knowledge is power, so my article provides some cold hard facts for you to consider and hopefully share with others.

 

SEPT. 11 TERROR ATTACKS: 17 YEARS LATER

The disturbing allegiances of the Democratic Party.

By Michael Cutler

September 11, 2018

For me, writing about the terror attacks of 9/11 has become something of an annual ritual.

I don’t do this to rehash old news and old concerns but out of my burning desire to prevent future terror attacks by pointing out the vulnerabilities that undermine national security and public safety.  Those threats are as real today as they were on that sunny late summer morning 17 years ago.

Since the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 I have testified before numerous Congressional hearings and provided testimony to the 9/11 Commission and have testified before state legislative hearings across the United States.

Wherever I participate in panel discussions and other public speaking engagements I am frequently asked essentially the same question by concerned members of the audience, “Are we safer today than we were on September 10, 2001?”

From the immigration perspective, my area of expertise, it is clear that we are not only not safer, but increasingly at risk.  In point of fact, today because of the Radical Leftist ideology that the Democratic Party has adopted, America’s threat level has risen precipitously.  I addressed this extreme danger in my recent article, Democrats’ Attack On ICE Agents Is Workingmaking more terrorism inevitable.

Let me be as clear about this as I can.  I am not being partisan, I am being pro-American!

I have been a registered Democrat for more than five decades.  The problem is that Democrats are no longer Democrats but have morphed into a political party of anarchists and seditionists.

The Democratic Party has been hijacked as certainly as were those four airliners on September 11, 2001 turning crowded passenger airliners into de facto cruise missiles.

Sanctuary Cities and Sanctuary States have spread across the United States like a wildfire, obstructing the enforcement of our immigration laws from within the interior of the United States.

The official report, 9/11 and  Terrorist Travel noted:

Thus, abuse of the immigration system and a lack of interior immigration enforcement were unwittingly working together to support terrorist activity. It would remain largely unknown, since no agency of the United States government analyzed terrorist travel patterns until after 9/11. This lack of attention meant that critical opportunities to disrupt terrorist travel and, therefore, deadly terrorist operations were missed.

Mayors of Sanctuary Cities claim to be motivated by compassion but in reality, Sanctuary Cities Protect Crooked Employers and Human Traffickers.

Leaders of the Democratic Party have only shown utter contempt and disdain for immigration law enforcement personnel, thereby endangering the agents’ safety and the safety of their families.  New York’s Governor Cuomo, has referred to ICE agents as “thugs” and has threatened to prosecute these dedicated law enforcement professionals for carrying out their lawful duties.

This also has a chilling effect, dissuading folks who have actionable intelligence from reaching out to ICE.

The second largest continence of federal agent who are assigned to the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) are the agents of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).  This is not by chance.  Alien terrorists all violate multiple provisions of our nations immigration laws.

Now the unthinkable has happened as the “leadership” of the Democratic Party has demanded that ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) be disbanded altogether and immigration law enforcement be terminated.

I addressed this suicidal seditionist call to arms of Americans by the now radicalized Democratic Party in my recent article, Immigration Anarchists vs National Security in which I noted that Dismantling ICE would lower America’s shields in a dangerous era.

In the days, weeks and months after the attacks of 9/11 our leaders warned us that for the terrorists to succeed in carrying out deadly terror attacks in the United States they need to “Get it right” only once while our officials needed to “get it right” 100% of the time.

Beyond that slogan, that became a virtual mantra, we must understand what that really means.

There was an old humorous riddle that asked “How many fools does it take to screw in a lightbulb?”  Where terrorists are concerned the equivalent question is “How many terrorists does it take to wreck havoc on America?”  Terrorism has been defined as “asymmetric warfare.”

Terror organizations certainly do not have access to the military firepower that the United States can bring to bear.  However, as we saw on 9/11, just nineteen terrorists inflicted a greater number of casualties on the United States’ mainland than was inflicted by the Japanese fleet on the U.S. at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.

Furthermore, the casualty count continues to climb and it is now estimated that more than 10,000 people continue to suffer grave consequences of the toxins that they ingested when the World Trade Center was reduced to rubble in lower Manhattan.

The horrifying reality is that every single alien who manages to enter the United States, either legally or illegally provides terrorists with that single opportunity that they need to carry out a deadly attack.

Every year tens of millions of aliens enter the United States legally and illegally.  This means that if only a fraction of 1% of the millions of aliens who enter our country annually came with the intentions of launching a massive terror attack, we are in deep trouble.

It was recently reported that last year some 700,000 nonimmigrant aliens who had been lawfully admitted through ports of entry failed to depart from the United States as required.

Annually more than 6 million applications for various immigration benefits are adjudicated by the overwhelmed and beleaguered adjurations officers of USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services).  Those benefits include political asylum, the conferring of lawful immigrant status and conferring U.S. citizenship upon resident aliens via the naturalization process.

The 9/11 Commission, to which I provided testimony, warned that immigration fraud was the key method of entry and embedding for terrorists.  These cases are investigated by ICE and are a component of what is known as “interior enforcement” of our immigration laws.

9/11 and  Terrorist Travel reported:

Once terrorists had entered the United States, their next challenge was to find a way to remain here. Their primary method was immigration fraud. For example, Yousef and Ajaj concocted bogus political asylum stories when they arrived in the United States. Mahmoud Abouhalima, involved in both the World Trade Center and landmarks plots, received temporary residence under the Seasonal Agricultural Workers (SAW) program, after falsely claiming that he picked beans in Florida.” Mohammed Salameh, who rented the truck used in the bombing, overstayed his tourist visa. He then applied for permanent residency under the agricultural workers program, but was rejected. Eyad Mahmoud Ismail, who drove the van containing the bomb, took English-language classes at Wichita State University in Kansas on a student visa; after he dropped out, he remained in the United States out of status.

Therefore, each time an alien is granted any immigration benefit or even is able to file for such a benefit, terrorists among them may acquire that opportunity essential for them to be able to launch a deadly attack.

If only a fraction of one percent of the six million applicants for immigration benefits are terrorists, we are indeed in deep trouble.

Yet the leadership of the Democratic Party not only refuses to fund the construction of a wall to secure the southern border to the United States but has demanding that the agency charged with enforcing our immigration laws from within the interior of the United States, ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) be totally disbanded and enforcement of our immigration laws be terminated.

Let’s briefly consider more recent developments.

On November 20, 2013 ABC News reported, “Exclusive: US May Have Let ‘Dozens’ of Terrorists Into Country As Refugees.”  This is not a new problem, on July 13, 2011 the Washington Times published a truly disturbing article, “Visas reviewed to find those who overstayed / Aim is to find any would-be terrorists.”

On September 2, 2014 ABC News reported, “Lost in America: Visa Program Struggles to “Track Missing Foreign Students.”

Here is how this report began:

The Department of Homeland Security has lost track of more than 6,000 foreign nationals who entered the United States on student visas, overstayed their welcome, and essentially vanished — exploiting a security gap that was supposed to be fixed after the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks.

“My greatest concern is that they could be doing anything,” said Peter Edge, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement official who oversees investigations into visa violators. “Some of them could be here to do us harm.”

My recent articles highlighted several cases involving alien terrorists who were fortunately arrested before they could do harm.

Here are a few of those articles that provide unequivocal evidence of the severity of the threats of terrorism that America and Americans face:

Iranian Agents charged With Targeting U.S. LocationsSleeper agents/assassins in our midst?

Somali Refugees Busted In Tucson:  Immigration fraud is at the heart of a terror case . . . again.

Jihadis And Drug Cartels At Our BorderA nightmare on the horizon.

Saudi Graduate Of Al Qaeda Terror Training Camp Arrested In OklahomaAlleged classmate of 9/11 hijackers attended US flight school in 2016.

The Democratic Party leadership has chosen sides.  They stand with transnational gangs and international terrorist organizations.  They stand with human traffickers and crooked employers.

Elections most certainly have consequences, arguably more so this year than any year since the founding of our great nation.

Amazing Democrats read Kavanaughs 147,000 pages but Obamacare had to pass before anyone could read it

Kavanaugh documents take center stage in confirmation hearing: What do Dems want?

By Kaitlyn Schallhorn
Fox News

“Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearing got off to a rocky start as multiple Democrats interjected and called for a delay – citing complaints that they haven’t seen all his records and only just received some of them.

Kavanaugh, 53, has served for the past 12 years on the federal appeals court in Washington, D.C. He was involved with the independent counsel’s report in laying out the legal framework supporting then-President Bill Clinton’s impeachment and served in key positions in the White House when George W. Bush was president.

He faces questions about his opinions on presidential authority, particularly as Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation continues.

The contentious hearing has repeatedly been interrupted and fallen behind schedule as Democrats have called to pause the hearing due to document requests.

Sen. Kamala Harris, considered a potential 2020 Democratic presidential contender, raised objections to the recent release of some 42,000 documents just before the hearing kicked off; others called for a delay until the White House reverses course on its withholding of more than 100,000 pages of Kavanaugh’s record related to his time in the Bush administration.

Read on for a look at what lawmakers have had access to – and what Democrats want.

What documents does the committee have?

In all, about 267,000 pages of Kavanaugh documents from his Bush years have been made public with more than 147,000 pages given just to the committee.

Former President George W. Bush’s attorneys told the Senate Judiciary Committee Bush requested they “err as much as appropriate on the side of transparency and disclosure” in releasing documents to the committee. It said it withheld more than 46,000 documents – from both the public and the committee – because they were State Department records Kavanaugh possessed for consultation, did not fall within the time frame requested by the committee or were marked “protected by constitutional privilege” by the White House or Justice Department.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley said the panel had been given access to more than 480,000 pages of emails and other documents from his service as an executive branch lawyer, more than 10,000 pages of judicial writings and 17,000 pages of speeches, articles, teaching materials and other items Kavanaugh attached to his 120-page questionnaire response.

Grassley, a Republican, also said the committee was able to review some 307 opinions he authored as well as hundreds more he joined.

“This is a half million pages of paper – more than the last five confirmed Supreme Court nominees combined,” Grassley, who has defended the document production as the most open in history, said.

Additionally, some 42,000 documents were made available to the committee relating to Kavanaugh’s work with past administrations just before the hearing’s start on Sept. 4.

Democrats vociferously argued for a delay in the hearing in order to have more time to review the documents. Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, in particular, said it was impossible to go through them all in time for a fair hearing.

What do Democrats want?  

The White House blocked about 100,000 documents pertaining to Kavanaugh’s records from the Bush White House on the basis of presidential privilege – a point of contention for Democrats.

“We don’t know what is being hidden,” Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., said during the hearing.

Schumer blasted President Trump ahead of the hearing for the withholding of certain documents.

“President Trump’s decision to step in at the last moment and hide [100,000] pages of Judge Kavanaugh’s records from the American public is not only unprecedented in the history of [Supreme Court nominees], it has all the makings of a cover up,” Schumer said in a tweet.

Democrats have also blasted Republicans for not requesting certain records, such as those pertaining to Kavanaugh’s time as a staff secretary.

Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., claimed Senate Democrats were not able to see records pertaining to “35 months of public service” as they “cannot even be considered.”

But Grassley, who has repeatedly rebuffed demands to postpone the hearing, said those documents “are the least useful in understanding his legal views and [are] the most sensitive to the executive branch.”

“What is being hidden and why?” Leahy asked Tuesday.”

Moving Healthcare and Hospitals/Clinics from the Veterans Administration to the Department of Defense Medical Services

Moving Healthcare and Hospitals/Clinics from the Veterans Administration to the Department of Defense Medical Services

 

 

by Paul Vallely, MG U.S. Army (ret.)

As one of the oldest and most expensive government agencies, the VA is constrained by unions, continuing lack of oversight and failed stewardship. It is time to change the course of the discussion, reportability, and accountability and move the Healthcare and hospital facilities/administration of the Veterans Administration to and under the Department of Defense. The current VA then should be one of sole administration of Veterans issues and benefits administration.

The justifications are endless to reposition the VA under the Department of Defense, those most notable and listed below.

  • The VA services process system was created during the FDR years and since has had an almost manual custom coded software upgrades where no cutting edge technology exists. The VA process and procedure platform is perhaps one level above a paper and pencil system. The hardware is up to date but the software systems are archaic. Making full use of more advanced computer structure would be a giant leap forward.
  • At the VA, there is no integrated database integrated system connecting the VA’s to each other, or to the Social Security Administration, or the Pentagon or to locations where vital service records are stored. At issue, when a vet seeks medical service from a different VA facility, he/she must have their own complete records with them, when burial services are requested, the VA does not recognize death notices/certificates from the SSA or the Pentagon. Under the Department of Defense, connectivity and approvals and sped-up considerably.
  • Vets today are allowed a 30-minute appointment with the doctor, 20 minutes of that the doctor is working the input process into the computer, paperwork too cumbersome. Having a feature like Dragon, voice to text is required, an inexpensive and forward-leaning solution managed by dedicated active military software personnel.
  • The VA personnel has no empathy, compassion or recognition of the veterans, there is no respect, no honor, no appreciation, hence no customer service. Brothers keeping watch over brothers will immediately cure this condition.
  • 30% of medical cases are for hearing loss, the veteran must prove military service where hearing loss was probable, 50 mm howitzers, cannons, artillery etc. Research and development under which the medical community as DoD contractors can address this condition on veteran case files while being assertive in curing and addressing hearing loss prognosis that would relieve medical case backlogs.
  • At the VA, there is no peer support staff, meaning VA ambassadors that promote and market the services offered by the VA, items like housing, education, loans, job searches benefits go unknown to those former active duty uniformed personnel. Incorporation of other current Department of Defense benefits for active personnel is prudent and pro-active.

Doctors at the Veterans Administration have no structure or set schedule or term. VA doctors see about 2-3 patients a day, in the civilian world, doctors see 6-10. If a doctor does not show up for a workday and veterans have scheduled appointments, there is no call made to the veteran and to reschedule appointments go out another 3-4 months. Using automated scheduling and an active outward call program is the solution and the DOD currently applies these technologies.

 

  • Veterans are forced to be self-advocates such that they have to navigate a labyrinth and bureaucracy that is not understood and leads to erroneous ratings and alters benefits. Words have meanings, where clarity and protocols within the Department of Defense offers an immediate change to the culture and attitude.
  • The VA is union heavy, where up to 5 unions exist in some locations, where the worst is SEIU, the most corrupt and felonious of all labor organizations, hence no one can be fired for dereliction of duty, altering paperwork, malfeasance, drug abuse, etc. Under the UCMJ, this behavior would be eliminated immediately.
  • Phone numbers for assistance to VA locations are voice mail and push #’s hell only to receive countless recordings, having the Department of Defense apply the existing telecom structure would eliminate this condition.
  • Veterans cannot seek simple medical procedures from civilian locations like a’ doc in the box’, dentist or even a closer military base for items like stitches, x-rays and even prescriptions like an antibiotic. The vets should have a choice card, demonstrating military service that is accepted at any local medical facility and could even have a modest co-pay. Under the Department of Defense, oversight of this process would be expedient.
  • The VA has no process to educate or seminars to aid in advancement for jobs for existing employees or for returning vets to gain an education and work at the VA in R&D, IT, the medical field, vets should work for vets due to the fraternity/sorority and military ethos. This issue is readily adaptable within existing programs at the DOD.
  • All VA locations should have random polygraphs or voice testing to determine honesty, work ethic (not selling narcotics or theft). These systems are currently in use at thousands of Defense and military posts domestically and globally.
  • Privatize a select group of existing VA hospitals by transferring them to the local communities and counties.

Explain the Chinese spy, Sen. Feinstein

By Marc Thiesen

Imagine if it emerged that the Republican chairman of the House or Senate intelligence committee had a Russian spy working on their staff. Think it would cause a political firestorm? Well, this month we learned that Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) had a Chinese spy on her staff who worked for her for about 20 years, was listed as an “office director” on payroll records and served as her driver when she was in San Francisco, all while reporting to China’s Ministry of State Security through China’s San Francisco Consulate. The reaction of the mainstream media? Barely a peep.

Feinstein acknowledged the infiltration but played down its significance. “Five years ago the FBI informed me it had concerns that an administrative member of my California staff was potentially being sought out by the Chinese government to provide information,” Feinstein said in a statement — which means the breach took place while Feinstein was heading the Intelligence Committee. But, Feinstein insisted, “he never had access to classified or sensitive information or legislative matters” and was immediately fired. In other words: junior staffer, no policy role, no access to secrets, quickly fired — no big deal.

But it is a big deal. I asked several former senior intelligence and law enforcement officials how serious this breach might have been. “It’s plenty serious,” one former top Justice Department official told me. “Focusing on his driver function alone, in Mafia families, the boss’s driver was among the most trusted men in the crew, because among other things he heard everything that was discussed in the car.”

A former top CIA clandestine officer explained to me what the agency would do if it had recruited the driver of a senior official such as Feinstein. “We would have the driver record on his phone all conversations that Feinstein would have with passengers and phone calls in her car. If she left her phone, iPad or laptop in the car while she went to meetings, social events, dinners, etc., we would have the driver download all her devices. If the driver drove for her for 20 years, he would probably would have had access to her office and homes. We would have had the source put down an audio device in her office or homes if the opportunity presented itself. Depending on the take from all of what the source reported, we would use the info to target others that were close to her and exhibited some type of vulnerability.”

“In short,” this officer said, “we would have had a field day.”

It seems improbable that Feinstein never once discussed anything sensitive in her car over a period of years. But let’s assume that Feinstein was extraordinarily careful and never discussed any classified information in front of her driver or on any devices to which he had access. Even so, one former top intelligence official told me, “someone in that position could give an adversary a whole bunch on atmospherics and trends and attitudes which are from time to time far more important than the things we call secrets.” He added, “It’s like [having access to her] unclassified emails.” (And we all know no one everexposes classified information on unclassified emails).

Washington is understandably focused on the threat from Russia. But according to FBI Director Christopher A. Wray, “China from a counterintelligence perspective represents the broadest, most pervasive, most threatening challenge we face as a country.” It was China, after all, that hacked the Office of Personnel Management in 2015, stealing the SF-86 security clearance forms of many thousands of executive-branch employees in the most devastating cyberattack in the history of our country. Beijing has successfully recruited FBI agents and State Department employees as spies, and has used information from U.S. informants to kill more than a dozen CIA sources inside the regime. And now, we know China recruited a high-value Senate staffer who worked in immediate proximity to the head of the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Feinstein owes the country a detailed explanation of how she let a Chinese spy into her inner sanctum. And the media should give this security breach the same attention they would if it involved Russia and the Republicans.

How The FBI Let A Chinese Spy Skate To Protect This Powerful Democrat

“For 20 years, California Senator Dianne Feinstein had a Chinese spy on her office payroll.”

“The Prime Directive was obviously to do nothing to embarrass Feinstein and that is exactly how the FBI handled the situation. Compare and contrast it with the scorched earth policy the FBI has used in regards to the Trump campaign and administration.”

Feinstein’s Ties to China Extend Beyond Chinese Spy

“According to the article, “For many years, Ms. Feinstein has tried to promote friendship and trade with China, and she has countered critics of the Chinese human-rights record by emphasizing what she described in a Senate speech last year as ‘major improvements in human rights’ there.”

“One of Feinstein’s first acts on becoming mayor of San Francisco in January 1979, was to visit Shanghai to establish sister-city relations.

The next apparent priority was re-establishing passenger airline service between China and the United States. Service was restored on Jan. 8, 1981, after a “32-year hiatus when a Boeing 747 with 139 Chinese passengers arrived exactly on time at San Francisco International Airport,” according to The New York Times.”

“According to the San Jose Mercury: “He [Jiang] once invited her and her husband to see Mao Tse-tung’s bedroom in his old residence, the first foreigners to do so. Feinstein had entertained Jiang in San Francisco, dancing with him as he sang ‘When We Were Young.’”

“This relationship proved fruitful in 1999, when President Bill Clinton was pushing to bring China into the World Trade Organization.”

Interuptus…

“A visit to Washington that year by Chinese Prime Minister Zhu Rongji, which many had hoped would seal the deal, produced nothing. Relations got even worse after U.S. bombers accidentally destroyed the Chinese Embassy in Belgrade that May.”
