As the founder of a victims’ rights law firm focused on technology-facilitated sex crimes, I’m in the business of protecting my clients. That means making use of every tool available to keep them safe. Facial recognition is one of those tools. The events of this month have made it abundantly clear that facial recognition is here to stay.
‘Game changing’ move a ‘break with 40 years of conservative policy’

Along with tax cuts, a foundation of the economic policy that led to a roaring economy before the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns was deregulation.
Applying common sense through a cost-benefit analysis – including consideration of long-term costs such as environmental impact – the Trump administration rule was to eliminate two regulations for every new regulation that was implemented.
Now, in an executive order that has been largely overlooked, President Biden not only is reversing the Trump policy, he’s taking regulatory power a step further.
Titled “Modernizing Regulatory Review,” the order shows that for the Biden administration, regulatory power is more than a means of protecting lives and maintaining an even playing field. It’s one of the primary means to advance the far-left agenda enacted in other executive actions since Inauguration Day, which base policy on race, gender equality and climate change rather than on what has worked historically to the benefit of everyone, whether rich or poor.
In an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, a civil-liberties legal group contends lower-court rulings in a Rhode Island case have set a dangerous precedent that allows police officers in some instances to enter the homes of citizens without a warrant and confiscate legal firearms.
The Rutherford Institute, in a friend-of-the-court brief in the case of Caniglia v. Strom, asserts the lower courts wrongly invoked the “community caretaking” exemption in the Fourth Amendment.
“This case represents a blatant attempt by law enforcement to create gaping holes in the Fourth Amendment force field that is supposed to protect homeowners and their homes against warrantless invasions by the government,” said constitutional attorney John W. Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute.
At various times over the last four years, I’ve wished I could communicate directly with President Trump to express my gratitude. Then it occurred to me: I have this column as a platform. While I have no hope he will actually see this editorial, I would like to submit an open letter to the president.
Dear President Trump:
We voted for you because you promised not to be a politician. You proved yourself by doing something no politician has ever done: You kept your campaign promises.
When you first took office, you didn’t whine that you inherited a sucky economy (which you did). You didn’t claim there was nothing you could do to fix it. Instead, you rolled up your sleeves – and fixed it. Tens of millions of Americans found jobs that sustained their dignity. The economy roared. Did the left give you credit for that? Of course not.
Even though President Joe Biden’s coronavirus relief plan has been met with skepticism from some Republicans, more and more GOP lawmakers have backed another round of higher stimulus payments that his plan includes.
Biden’s $1.9 trillion plan includes $1,400 cash payments to Americans earning less than $75,000, and while it is all but certain to change as Congress debates it, most Republicans have objected to the overall size of the bill rather than the checks it allots.
One day before President Biden’s inauguration, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made the determination that China’s treatment of Muslim Uighurs and other minority groups in the country’s western Xinjiang region should be officially recognized as attempted genocide.
Although the designation was at least two years in the making, it was in part a direct response to new information documented by the Associated Press and humanitarian groups last summer. The AP investigation, based on state documents and interviews with 30 ex-detainees and a former detention camp instructor, found that the Chinese government has been using forced sterilization, abortions, and forced birth control to reduce its Muslim population – even as it encouraged the country’s Han majority to have more children.

More than two dozen Republican senators are calling for a meeting with President Joe Biden to discuss the new administration’s recent executive orders and regulatory actions, which they worry could have devastating effects on American families whose livelihood is tied to the domestic energy sector.
In a letter to Biden, 26 senators from states where economic growth and employment heavily rely on the oil and gas industry, wrote that they were “surprised” by the president’s actions that could put “hundreds of thousands of” energy jobs in their states at risk.
“Your actions will have grave consequences for our constituents, and taking these actions on your very first week as President, with no input from those of us who represent these hard working Americans is counter to the desires of the American people who want practical, bipartisan solutions to our nation’s challenges, and who want policies that support working families,” the letter reads.

(AbsoluteNews.com) – President Joe Biden is a little more than a week into his new role and he’s already killing jobs. The Democrat has issued a number of orders impacting the energy and construction sectors. But when he was recently asked about American sacrifices, he wasn’t interested in answering.
On January 27, Biden announced his climate change policies. After he finished speaking, reporters shouted questions. One of the members of the press asked him,”What sacrifices are you asking Americans to make?” Instead of answering, the president walked out of the room.
