In China, Big Brother Is Watching
Your ´Social Credit Score´

Investor´s Business Daily, by John Stossel

Upset because Facebook and Google invade your privacy? Be glad you don´t live in China. Facebook and other Western apps are banned there. The government views their openness as a threat. So the Chinese use platforms like WeChat and Alibaba. Now the Chinese government takes data from those platforms to assign all people who use them a "social credit score." In other words, the government monitors your web activity and gives you a grade. Your purchases, social interactions and political activity will determine what privileges you get. Having a low score — because you smoke, are slow to pay bills or criticize a government

I give Democrats and their supporters a low social credit score. I have not targeted them for re-education, because you cannot educate an idiot. I have tuned them out.

I´m starting a new business: Producing "appropriate" facebook, twitter and internet profiles and posts for people in China seeking to be seen by the government in a good light. I´ll charge just a dollar per month. I´ll be a billionare by the end of summer.

How will the Chicoms sift through all the fake data?

In the USA "Big Brother" is watching, too. It´s all perfectly legal to collect and sell personal data you voluntarily input, including your image. So, have fun, and know full well that your data, from your gasoline or supermarket cards through your Facebook account and browser history, are all being recorded by someone somewhere - wholly within the law and your "user agreement".

China has nothing on the NSA. The Equifax credit breach alone provided the detailed life habits of most of the country. Combine that with Facebook, 100% of your email, your medical records and everything you ever bought on Amazon or searched on Google... They know more about you than you know about yourself. Their only problem is the large number of people out here with military service records who still remember why we served.

Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts once wrote that the "way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race." He wrote those words in a 2007 opinion that turned back Seattle´s race-based efforts to implement affirmative action-type policies to its local school district. While that case garnered a race-neutral result, his broader message seems to have fallen on deaf ears. In America, race-based policies are expanding not contracting. Rather than reaching down to lower-level schools, affirmative action policies are now exponentially expanding into corporate America. In recent weeks, Amazon (AMZN), Alphabet (GOOGL), and Facebook

Blue-Model Fail: By any standard, San Francisco is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. So why has it suddenly become an unappealing place to visit and to live? As with so many U.S. cities, it suffers a host of urban maladies. Blame the far-left Blue Model of urban governance, which now afflicts most major American cities. Yes, the city by the bay is extraordinarily beautiful. But that´s a result of geography and the city´s distant past, not of its current political class, which is about as far-left on the urban political spectrum as any city in America. Many were

Energy Markets: Based on all the stories about "surging" gasoline prices, you might think the country was about to relive the energy crisis of the late 1970s. The truth is, the cost of filling up today is nowhere near where it was during most of the past decade. Just before the July Fourth holiday, several news outlets noted that pump prices are higher than they´ve been in four years. Democrats are, not surprisingly, playing this up as an election issue, saying it´s the result of President Trump´s misguided policies toward Iran and his softening Obama-era fuel economy standards for new cars.

Trade: First, President Trump hit China, Canada, Mexico and the EU with trade tariffs. Now, the world is hitting back. Will a burgeoning trade war with our closest trading partners be the undoing of global free trade and Trump´s own domestic agenda? Don´t count on it. Here´s the action so far: President Trump already slapped 10% to 25% tariffs on aluminum and steel imports. In retaliation, Canada has hit U.S. imports with an estimated $12.6 billion in tariffs in retaliation. Next, some $50 billion in tariffs on Chinese goods are set to go into effect later this week, which China vows will

July 4th is a generally more festive American holiday — with cookouts, parades, parties and fireworks — than other patriotic holidays, such as Memorial Day or Veterans Day. Most people forget that when the Declaration of Independence was drafted and signed on or about July 4th 1776 it was both a revolutionary and a somber occasion. It was revolutionary in being the first political doctrine in human history to assert that the rights of the people come from God, and not the state — which made those rights natural, absolute and "unalienable." But it was a somber occasion because in 1776 the odds

Mexico Votes: Beset by corruption, poverty and endemic violence, Mexican voters sent a message of desperation on Sunday by voting overwhelmingly to make socialist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador their next president. This is bad for the U.S., but even worse for Mexico. President Trump did the neighborly thing in congratulating Obrador on his victory and pledged to work with him. But in fact Obrador´s win bodes ill for future relations. His talking points for the policies he´ll pursue once in office sound much more like Venezuela´s late socialist dictator Hugo Chavez than, say, Ronald Reagan or Margaret Thatcher. For starters, Obrador vows to

Increasingly bitter and aggressive attacks on President Trump managed to bolster his approval rating, which climbed 5 points to reach the second highest level of his presidency, the latest IBD/TIPP Poll finds. The July poll found that 41% approve of the job Trump is doing. That´s the first time he´s been above 40% since March 2017, and just 1 point below his highest approval rating of 42% during his first month in office. Fifty-four disapprove of his job performance. Attacks on Trump intensified late last month in the wake of the administration´s "zero tolerance" policy toward those caught illegally crossing

Housing: With home prices soaring in most markets, this is the best time to be a homeowner since 2005. But there´s a downside: Thanks to continued government meddling, the housing market has rarely been more fragile. Is another housing crunch brewing? We´ve talked before about the strength of the U.S. economy, particularly after tax cuts kicked in. And that´s still true. Unfortunately, 10 years after the 2008 financial crisis, there´s one exception: The housing market, which, despite superficial signs of health, remains dysfunctional. Homeowners are happy now, but they may soon be reeling. The Fed, worried about ultralow 3.8% unemployment and rising

Climate Change: For more than a decade, California has won high praise from environmentalists for its stringent greenhouse gas restrictions. But a new report shows that despite the enormous costs of this effort, the state is doing a worse job at cutting CO2 emissions than the rest of the country, while badly hurting its working families. Back in 2007, California became the first state to cap CO2 emissions when then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed AB32, which mandated the state cut greenhouse gas emissions back to 1990 levels by 2020. Schwarzenegger called it "a bold new era of environmental protection." Not to

Tax Cuts: They said it wouldn´t happen, but it did: The money companies stashed overseas to protect them from high U.S. corporate tax rates is flooding back in, boosting growth, jobs and confidence in the economy. Thank the Trump tax cuts. All told, the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) reported, some $305.6 billion returned to the U.S. from overseas accounts. That´s a $1.2 trillion annual rate, and far more than the $35 billion one year before. The BEA´s analysts explain why this happened: "The large magnitudes (of inward capital flows) ... reflect the repatriation of accumulated earnings by foreign affiliates of U.S.

Civil Society: When not worrying that its increasingly hostile anti-Trump antics might backfire on Democrats, the left is busy blaming President Trump´s own incivility for the ferocity of their attacks. But this is exactly how the left treats all conservatives, rough-hewn or not. After a week in which a celebrity called for the abduction of the president´s young son, a restaurant kicked out Trump´s spokesman, and a mob harassed the Homeland Security secretary, Democrats are starting to wonder if their "resistance" is getting out of hand — while refusing to take any blame for it. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi managed to

Management: While the mainstream media fixated on First Lady Melania Trump´s fashion choice, the Trump administration unveiled the most sweeping government reorganization plan in history. It deserves far more attention than it will get. Among other things, the ambitious plan, put together by budget director Mick Mulvaney, would merge the departments of Education and Labor to one cabinet-level agency called the Department of Education and the Workforce. It would also consolidate multiple programs scattered across the government and put them where they make the most sense. In other words, it would do what private businesses do constantly.

Rep. Jim Jordan appeared on Fox News for an interview with Bret Baier, who grilled him on the allegations that he ignored sexual abuse when he was a wrestling coach at Ohio State. Jordan, a Republican member of the House Freedom Caucus who coached wrestling at Ohio State from 1986 to 1994, denied any knowledge of alleged abuse by the team’s doctor, Richard Strauss, who died in 2005. Baier played a video of Mike DiSabato — one wrestler who has appeared on CNN repeatedly to accuse Jordan of knowing about the abuse — claiming talk of the abuse was frequent

Mitt Romney spoke out against "trade wars" on Friday after President Trump imposed tariffs on $34 billion of Chinese imports, prompting Beijing to respond with its own tariffs on U.S. goods. “Trade wars are a tax on Americans. They have severe consequences for many employers and inevitably cost Americans jobs,” the Utah GOP Senate hopeful said in a statement. Romney said trade wars are particularly punishing for agriculture, which is a sector in Utah the former GOP presidential contender said is “already under duress from wildfire, drought, and challenging public land policies.” “Our national objective should be to open new markets, negotiate free

The Episcopal Church formed a committee Wednesday to “provide a pathway” toward revising the Book of Common Prayer to include gender-neutral language. Church leaders called for immediate revisions to correct the “overwhelming use of masculine language” throughout the book, arguing that the language is now a hindrance to spiritual inclusion, according to the Episcopal Church website. (Snip) Kathleen Moore, a seminarian from the Diocese of Vermont, said she tries to help the youth see that gendered language gets in the way of faith in God. “Let’s let God be God,” Moore told the religious news agency.

The messages convey a sense of urgency, and are coming with increasing frequency. They are short, focused reactions to the latest “outrage” committed by President Trump. Some end by asking for money, some urge participation in protests. All read as if they are sent from the official headquarters of the resistance. Hillary Clinton is up to something. Five times in the last month alone, she sent e-mails touting her super PAC’s role in combating President Trump.

Deutch also said that there are efforts underway to require gun manufacturers to incorporate smart technology in firearms but that the NRA is standing in the way. “Yes, there are absolutely efforts. The technology has advanced where we’ve seen this kind of technology using guns,” Deutch said during a conference call briefing with the Jewish Democratic

June 2018 was an especially bad month for the status of Muslims in America. First, we learned that a new study showed that many Americans view Muslims in the United States as insufficiently “American,” and almost 20 percent would deny Muslim citizens the right to vote. Then, the Supreme Court upheld President Donald Trump’s decision to institute a ban on immigrants, refugees and visa holders from five majority-Muslim countries in a 5-4 decision. The synergy of these two pieces of information is critical because it reveals a common attitude that Muslims pose a threat to U.S. security whether they are

President Trump raised eyebrows Thursday night when he criticized the "thousand points of light" slogan coined by former President George H.W. Bush. During his speech at a rally in Montana, Trump said "thousand points of light" was a lesser slogan than his motto, Make America Great Again. "What the hell was that, by the way, thousand points of light? What did that mean? Does anyone know?" Trump asked the crowd. "I know one thing: Make America Great Again we understand.

This is the land of opportunity, and anyone who wants the come here can…legally. That’s not the issue. It’s whom we incentivize to enter legally. For the Trump White House, it’s been their stated position to gear our immigration policy to allowing more high-skilled workers into this country. As for the families of the low-skilled working immigration population in the country, 51 percent (76 percent counting immigrant-led households with children) are collecting some sort of check from our welfare services.
