    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Google Maps users will soon be able to broadcast their movements to friends and family via the app - the latest test of how much privacy people are willing to sacrifice in an era of rampant sharing. The location-monitoring feature will begin rolling out Wednesday in an update to the Google Maps mobile app, which is already installed on most of the world’s smartphones. It will also be available on personal computers. Google believes the new tool will be a more convenient way for people to let someone know where they are without having to text...

    A prefecture in China’s far western Xinjiang region is requiring all vehicles to install satellite tracking systems as part of stepped-up measures against violent attacks. Traffic police in Bayingolin Mongol Autonomous Prefecture announced the regulation on Sunday, shortly after thousands of heavily armed police paraded in the Xinjiang capital and ruling Communist Party officials vowed to ramp up their campaign against separatists and Islamic militants. The vehicle-tracking program in Bayingolin will utilize China’s homegrown Beidou satellite system, launched in recent years to reduce China’s reliance on U.S.-based GPS providers for sensitive applications. Authorities said they will also track cars using...

    A 4-year-old with autism is back with her parents after she was saved from almost drowning in a creek. Officials say the little girl, Melody, had wandered away from home and accidentally fell into the creek. The mother told KDAF she had left for work, and her husband did not realize the little girl had left the home. "She went out on an adventure. She's likes to do that. She's got autism, and we just found out about it. She just likes to wander off and do her own thing sometimes," said Melody's mother. Thanks to the help of two...

The decision to scrap the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System comes amid growing international terror fears and President-elect Donald Trump’s suggestions that he could ban Muslim immigrants from the United States.

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01) released the following statement on his decision to vote against H.R. 4919, Kevin and Avonte's Law, which establishes a federal program to chip individuals with autism and developmental disabilities: “While this initiative may have noble intentions, ‘small and temporary’ programs in the name of safety and security often evolve into permanent and enlarged bureaucracies that infringe on the American people’s freedoms. That is exactly what we have here. A safety problem exists for people with Alzheimer’s, autism and other mental health issues, so the fix, we are told, is to have the Department...

    Measure intended to protect people with disabilities who have wandered away A bill meant to help those with developmental disabilities would allow government agencies to locate people with tracking devices, which has some concerned the measure gives the federal government too much authority and power. In 2008, Kevin Curtis Wills, a 9-year-old boy with autism, jumped into a river near a park and drowned. In 2014, a 14-year-old boy with autism, Avonte Oquendo, left his school and drowned in a river. Rep. Chris Smith (R., N.J.), who chairs the Congressional Autism Caucus and the Alzheimer’s Disease Task Force, introduced a...

    The US Navy has held meetings to discuss highly controversial technology which could one day allow the government to track the movements of every single citizen in the country, The Sun has learned. A number of naval officers visited the home of an American presidential candidate and “transhumanist” called Zoltan Istvan, who believes human beings should be fitted with technology to boost their brain power or enhance physical attributes. Istvan said they discussed the possibility of implanting humans with chips fitted with global positioning (GPS) technology.

    Republicans pounced on a report Monday that said top White House adviser David Plouffe took a $100,000 speaking fee from an Iran-tied firm whose technology may have been used to track dissidents, claiming Plouffe's involvement could represent a "loophole" in sanctions against the regime. The White House rejects the notion that anything improper took place. According to The Washington Post, Plouffe was paid for two speeches he made in Nigeria in December 2010 about a month before joining the White House -- and apparently before the company hosting him started coming under heavy scrutiny from the Obama administration. The White...
  • Obama collecting personal data for a secret race database

    A key part of President Obama’s legacy will be the fed’s unprecedented collection of sensitive data on Americans by race. The government is prying into our most personal information at the most local levels, all for the purpose of “racial and economic justice.” Unbeknown to most Americans, Obama’s racial bean counters are furiously mining data on their health, home loans, credit cards, places of work, neighborhoods, even how their kids are disciplined in school — all to document “inequalities” between minorities and whites.

    The American people don’t trust Obama to fight international terrorism. irst, a little inside baseball — at my own site The Hayride, which is a political blog mostly covering events in Louisiana, this is the busiest week in our six-year history and Tuesday was far and away the busiest day. And what drove that traffic was a story, originally reported by WBRZ-TV in Baton Rouge that we picked up on, about a Syrian refugee dropped into Baton Rouge and settled there by Catholic Charities who decided to take his destiny, and his whereabouts, in his own hands. The migrant in...

    Obama’s Socialist Databases by John Velisek • August 5, 2015 FacebookTwitter19Share There are many areas that will need to be cleaned up after our current President has left his legacy of chaos and unconstitutional power grabs. One of the most damaging is the compilation of databases on almost every American based on race, class and income. Obama has instituted a plan whereby 330 million Americans will be put into databases which will encompass all aspects of every American life. Not since the socialist system of Stalin has so much information been officially gathered by a government on its citizens. These...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Gas prices are finally falling, but those savings might not last long.At least 18 states, including Minnesota, are considering taxing drivers based on distance. Gas prices aren’t the only reason for the idea, since newer cars get better gas mileage. Oregon has a pilot project that will start next year to test the idea. They’re having 5,000 volunteers pay 1.5 cents per mile instead of the 30-cents-per-gallon tax.An electronic device attached to their vehicle will report how far they drive in state.
