He added, “Modifications to firearms that make them more lethal should be subject to the National Firearms Act.”

As Breitbart News noted, if the purchase of AR-pistols is categorized as the purchase of a “short-barreled rifle” the process of buying the firearm could require being fingerprinted and photographed, as well as undergoing a background check, registering the firearm with the ATF, paying the federal government a $200 tax (on top of the price of the firearm), and waiting nine to ten months for the whole purchasing process to be completed.

That is the standard process for other short barrel rifles and firearms along with accessories under the purview of the National Firearms Act.

The president pushed for an annual report on gun trafficking too, saying: “Today with online sales, and ‘ghost guns,’ times and trafficking methods have changed. We have to adjust. We also have to ask the Justice Department to release a new annual report, this report will better help policy makers address firearm trafficking as it is today, now what it was yesterday.”

Biden then pointed to the cost tied to gun crime seen in large cities across America, particularly in minority communities. He said, “Gun violence is estimated to cost the nation $280 billion a year.”

He suggested Americans could have gun control instead, and claimed such control comes “at a fraction of the cost.” More Information Here!!

(Rollbacks Apr 26, 2020!!) Coronavirus becomes Africa’s new biometric election registration variable, Côte d’Ivoire ID signup slow

More Information Here!!

Biometric voter registers require biometric voter registration. Neighboring Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire are both due to go to biometrically secured polls at the end of the year and both are undergoing biometric registration. Enter COVID-19. The pandemic has slowed signup up in Côte d’Ivoire and stopped it in Ghana, a decision both welcomed and opposed, depending on one’s affiliation. Meanwhile in Zimbabwe, the weak spot of biometric security doors is exploited in an inside job robbery.

In America alone, there are over 120 Deep Underground #Military Bases situated under most major cities, #US #AFBs, US #Navy Bases, and US #Army Bases, as well as underneath #FEMA Military Training #Camps and #DHS control centers.

There are also many Deep Underground Military Bases under Canada.

Almost all of these bases are over 2 miles underground and have diameters ranging from 10 miles up to 30 miles across!

They have been building these bases day and night, unceasingly, since the 1940s. These bases are basically large cities underground connected by high-speed magneto-levity trains that have sped up to 1500 MPH.

The Black Projects sidestep the authority of Congress, which as we know is illegal. There is much hard evidence out there. Many will react with fear, terror, and paranoia, but you must snap out of it and wake up from the brainwashing your media pumps into your heads all day long.
Are you going to be a rabbit in the headlights, or are you going to stand up and say enough is enough?

The US Government through the NSA, DOD, CIA, DIA, ATF, ONI, US Army, US Marine Corps, FEMA, and the DHS has spent in excess of 12 trillion dollars building the massive, covert infrastructure for the coming One World Government and New World Religion over the past 40 years.

There is the Deep Underground Military Base underneath Denver International Airport, which is over 22 miles in diameter and goes down over 8 levels. It’s no coincidence that the CIA relocated the headquarters of its domestic division, which is responsible for operations in the United States, from the CIA’s Langley headquarters to Denver.

Constructed in 1995, the government and politicians were hell-bent on building this airport in spite of it ending up vastly overbudget. Charges of corruption, constant construction company changes, and mass firings of teams once they had built a section of their work were reported so that no “one” group had any idea what the blueprint of the airport was.

Not only did locals not want this airport built nor was it needed, but everything was done to make sure it was built despite that. Masonic symbols and bizarre artwork of dead babies, burning cities, and women in coffins comprise an extensive mural as well as a time capsule – none of which is featured in the airport’s website section detailing the unique artwork throughout the building.

DIA serves as a cover for the vast underground facilities that were built there. There are reports of electronic/magnetic vibrations which make some people sick and cause headaches in others. There are acres of fenced-in areas which have barbed wire pointing into the area as if to keep things in, and small concrete stacks that resemble mini-cooling towers rise out of the acres of nowhere to apparently vent underground levels.

The underground facility is 88.3 square miles deep. Basically, this Underground Base is 8 cities on top of each other! The holding capacity of such leviathans bases is huge. These city-sized bases can hold millions and millions of people, whether they are mind-controlled, enslaved NWO World Army Soldiers or innocent and enslaved surface dwellers from the towns and cities of America and Canada.

There is Dulce Base, in New Mexico. Dulce is a small town in northern New Mexico, located above 7,000 feet on the Jicarilla Apache Indian Reservation.

There are only one major motel and a few stores. It’s not a resort town and it is not bustling with activity. But Dulce has a deep, dark secret. The secret is harbored deep below the brush of Archuleta Mesa.

Function: Research of mind-related functions, genetic experiments, mind control training, and reprogramming. There are over 3000 real-time video cameras throughout the complex at high-security locations (entrances and exits). There are over 100 secret exits near and around Dulce. Many around Archuleta Mesa, others to the south around Dulce Lake, and even as far east as Lindrith. Deep sections of the complex connect into natural cavern systems.

Level 1 – garage for street maintenance.

Level 2 – garage for trains, shuttles, tunnel-boring machines, and disc maintenance.

Level 3 – everyone is weighed, in the nude, then given a jumpsuit uniform. The weight of the person is put on a computer I.D. card each day. Change in over three dollars requires a physical exam and X-ray.

Level 4 – Human research in ‘paranormal’ areas – mental telepathy, mind control, hypnosis, remote viewing, astral traveling – etc. The technology is apparently here to allow them to know how to manipulate the ‘Bioplasmic Body’ Development of a laser weapon that can remotely cause burns and discomfort on its target. They can lower your heartbeat with Deep Sleep ‘Delta Waves,’ induce a static shock, then reprogram, Via a Brain-Computer link.

Level 5 -security is severe. Armed guards patrol constantly and in addition to weight-sensitive areas there (are) hand print and eye print stations. Here, is the device that powers the transfer of atoms.

Level 6 – Level 6 is privately called ‘Nightmare Hall’. It holds the genetic labs. Click Here To Read More!!

Jumio’s selfie biometrics are going into production for Bahrain bank, Onfido has lowered onboarding time and cost for a Bulgarian bank, and FacePhi will provide its technology to a leading Latin American microfinance company, and Kabn has signed up a securities broker.

“Touchless” has been the buzzword of the past year in biometrics, but sophisticated solutions for fingerprint scanners that go beyond regular disinfecting have reached the market, Jenetric Co-founder and CEO Roberto Wolfer notes in a guest post. The impact of the pandemic on fingerprinting as a biometric modality remains unclear, and with masks potentially outlasting the COVID pandemic, Wolfer suggests “faceless” could be the buzzword on the year ahead.

Vuzix smart glasses have been integrated with a smart support system for nursing homes developed by KDDI Research in collaboration with a Japanese social welfare organization, with face biometrics and speech synthesis technologies giving staff instant access resident information. The integration is intended to help with a labor shortage in the field.

Biometrics continue to make headways into mainstream personal computers and device-based online environments, with Google bringing Face ID biometrics to the iOS version of its Chrome browser, and Microsoft releasing a new multi-factor authentication password manager with support for biometrics, dubbed Autofill, as an extension for the Edge and Google Chrome browsers.

Governments are facing decisions on their digital ID systems, with a new single sign-on (SSO) system planned for all government services in the UK, governance questions in Australia and the a call for the Netherlands to act on a legal footing and foundational digital ID. Canada’s DIACC has released its annual checkup on public perceptions of digital ID in the country.

The Draft ID Management Bill could help propel South Africa towards a digitally evolved economy, but work remains to line up the country’s ID system with the ten principles the government has laid out for identity management, Law for All Managing Director Jackie Nagtegaal writes for Maverick Citizen. Operationalizing the Protection of Personal Information (POPI) Act would help, but the Department of Home Affairs needs more funding to carry out the other steps needed, Nagtegaal argues.

The forced innovation of digital identities could lead to passports for those currently blocked from them by financial barriers or a lack of foundational ID, Adil Khan of GSMA’s Mobile for Development Team writes for Turkish state broadcaster TRT World. Khan refers to the rapid changes that have enabled the registration of births with mobile phones in Pakistan and the introduction of authentication via voice biometrics in Kenya as signs of the opportunity for social transformation through joint public and private sector engagement on digital ID.

Enterprise blockchain could be the key to finding a balance between digital identity and user privacy, R3 Head of Venture Development Ivar Wiersma writes in a guest post. By confirming the validity of credentials without actually storing personal information, Wiersma writes, decentralized identity solutions based on blockchain could meet data privacy requirements and protect user control in a sustainable way.

Optimism abounds for publicly traded biometrics companies, as Idex Biometrics’ latest fundraising effort is a private placement worth $27.5 million. Earnings reports from Fingerprint Cards and Nuance show strong positioning, and InterBio was valuated at $52 million in its recent acquisition. Ipsidy wants all its shareholders to vote during its March 22 meeting to carry out the structural changes it needs to make for a planned uplisting.

An Apple patent filing adds dozens of new claims to its original invention of a system to implement its face and fingerprint biometrics in the same i-device, perhaps responding to the challenges of Face ID while masked. Startup GBT Technologies, meanwhile, has filed a patent application for a system for smartphone-based facial recognition that works with or without masks, with a single enrollment.

Health passports continue to be a hot topic, with Tony Blair weighing in on their inevitability, and considerations of new measures relating to them in the UK, Hawaii, and Malaysia.

Blair says the technology is ready, but declines to provide details on how trust will be built with the public.

Secunet biometric gates will be deployed, in part to speed up passenger wait times, at two of the main air and land border checkpoints in Estonia through local integrator AS Alarmtec. Greece is planning its implementation of Alarmed Europe’s EES, with a total budget of over $85 million. Privacy International has published a document detailing the tools used by UK immigration authorities and the companies that provide them, meanwhile.

Biometric devices for consumer authentication on and offline is the most prevalent theme in the week’s biometrics headlines, whether in the form of smartphone-based health passes, new native capabilities on mobile devices, or fingerprint-enabled payment cards.

Google and Microsoft are expanding their support for mobile biometrics, Idex Biometrics has announced a capital raise, Apple and startup GBT have filed patents on smartphone facial recognition, and online authentication providers Jumio, Onfido, FacePhi and Kabn have announced new customers.

Synaptics’ pivot to artificial intelligence at the edge from its previous focus on sensors for mobile phones and PCs will involve sensing through non-glass surfaces and visual wake-words, CEO Michael Hurlston tells Venture Beat in an interview.

Among the insights contained in the conversation is that the power of AI and the energy efficiency of edge computing are both needed to bring out the IoT’s potential.

A pair of partnerships have been formed to implement facial recognition at the edge. Vsblty and Ability Enterprise have produced a high-resolution camera capable of running multiple Intel algorithms simultaneously for the retail and smart city markets, while CyberLink’s FaceMe Security has been integrated into Network Optix’ video management platform Nx Meta for the same markets, as well as industrial and foodservice operations.

The Line, a 170 kilometer-long smart city planned for Saudi Arabia with no cars, 100 percent renewable energy, and ubiquitous facial recognition is expected to be ready for occupancy by 2030, ZDNet reports. Billions of dollars are being invested in a city that is intended to one day be home to hundreds of thousands, though attracting residents may be the challenge.

An AnyVision patent describes drones adjusting their position to perform facial recognition matches while airborne, for possible future use in identifying intended delivery recipients. An activist group has published a list of occasions when UK police used drones for surveillance of protests, while drones and facial recognition are both in NATO’s plans, but not necessarily in combination.

North America is one of the largest markets for rugged biometric devices, Laxton Group CEO Lyle Charles Laxton tells Biometric Update in an interview, and opportunities to support elections and national IDs in Africa can also yield hardware development benefits to bring to that market. Laxton also advises that although his firm sells technology for elections across Africa, ballots should remain manual on the continent for the time being.

A new joint project has announced by The Engine Room and Open Society Foundations “to reimagine what digital ID systems rooted in justice can look like.”

The Engine Room carried out a comprehensive research project in 2019 on the real-life experiences of people in five developing nations in Africa and Asia in the hopes of exposing issues needing more attention from authorities. The concerns around digital ID systems have increased, between general digitization and the COVID-19 pandemic.

Similar to the Cyrilla report and Dr. Ramanathan’s comments, The Engine Room suggests that marginalized communities have been particularly harmed by digital ID systems that are not designed for them.

The groups intend to engage with other civil society organizations to “imagine and craft” better digital ID systems.

BioCatch’s method of verifying an individual’s identity and detecting fraud using behavioral biometrics based on mobile device usage patterns has earned it a U.S. registered patent, bring the company’s total number of patents to 57 since it began operations in 2011.

FintechNews reports that this development comes after a year in which the company announced the opening of an office in Singapore for the APAC region, extended its presence to five continents with over 40 customers and 175 employees.

BioCatch has a database of over 200 million behavioral biometric profiles, allowing it to analyze over two billion digital sessions every month.

“We continue to enhance our platform and find new ways to protect financial institutions and their customers from fraud and cybercrime. Surpassing 50 patents is a major milestone and a testament to our innovative strength and leadership in the industry,” FintechNews quoted Avi Turgeman, BioCatch founder, CTO and Vice President of Business Development, as saying.

“We have a very strong IP portfolio in the behavioral space and in the cybersecurity field, and we intend to continue to expand it to address the needs of our customers and to help protect consumers,” he added.

FintechNews also recalled that BioCatch recently sealed a deal with Suncorp Bank to put behavioral biometrics in place for mule account detection, which during a trial process helped the Australian financial company close down 90 per cent of mule accounts before fraud was carried out.
