How constant surveillance puts protesters at risk
"As black lives matter protests continue around the country police are using facial recognition and all kinds of other technology to arrest protesters and organizers, and while in some cases, the people arrested did commit crimes. After the fact, arrests can have a chilling effect on free speech and lead to cases of mistaken identity. They also show us just how much surveillance is part of our lives. Simone Brown is a professor at Ut Austin. She's also author of the book dark matters on the surveillance of blackness. She told me about how police identified and arrested a protester and Philadelphia there was a tattoo on her arm and she was wearing a t shirt. That was you know quite. Said Keep, the immigrants deport the racist and so the police used the images of her. They went to find out you know where did she get this shirt made and they found her comment that she made on Oetzi they looked at her instagram they looked at her linked in profiles and they were able to match her this image to identify her and she was eventually charged. So all this is to say that there's still just kind of trails of data actually that we leave about ourselves that is being used to form a case to what extent to your knowledge is some of this technology being used to find arrest protesters and even protest organizers. Chilling effect that organizers but also the ACLU became quite aware and worked to challenge was around twenty, fifteen, twenty sixteen or so this company Gio Fia, which is really a company that's kind of social media analysis company that was working on hand in hand with various policing agencies to monitor key words, black lives, matter protests, Jihad all of these things were then tagged and flag to. then. In some cases visit, you'd have a policing agency, visit a potential protester, and of course, if you go onto Gio phidias website now there's like nothing really just contact information, but we know if something is out there if gop has gone, another company will pop up and you know fill in that gap when you layer on all of this technology that you described, it sounds like. It could be relatively accurate and I could see police departments falling into the idea that you know that although there have been concerns facial recognition is now is accurate once you add. In social media like this should work. Great. What is the push back to that and so the idea of something you know working great. If just one person is wrongly. Identified, say, for example with facial recognition technology, then it's not working at all these technologies rely on this idea that they are perfect correct but they really they really aren't and so people are asking for a pause because these technologies are not outside of this system in which we live in where you know black people are criminalized right how do you feel like this? The longterm implications of this surveillance might play out will people be less willing to take the risk of exercising their right to protest? I don't think so I think in terms that people you know we're in the middle of a pandemic and yet people are still you know risking a lot to go out and protest and demand something better I think one case and I'll give you an example that I think is important is in terms of DNA collection, and so a lot of people want to their armchair genealogists are also want to find family or some type of connection and they use a company like say twenty three and me or ancestry dot com or jet match, and that same company Jed match was then recently purchased i. Think just last year by a company that has close ties to you know a policing agency and this company is not just about finding long lost relatives, but they save their primarily for forensic analysis. So the question of whether it's sea or whether it's ancestry dot com it's like we have to really think about what happens to that data. Well, it's interesting. It's it feels like it's a thing that that privacy researchers have warned about for a long time that there is essentially a big web of surveillance and were leaving tracks all the time and that it isn't always obvious what the harm might be. Until something like this happens exactly. But you know they're also tech one of the places that I looked to see you know what's what's the future perhaps for the future that's already here is looking at airport security and there have been a lot of push in terms of AI enabled technologies to. Assess risk to assess threat and one of the things that you know a few companies are starting to develop now is emotion recognition, and so that might be that a traveler present themselves at an airport speak to an Avatar one company. Avatar actually stands for Automated Virtual Agent for truth assessments and this Avatar will then ask them a series of questions and then measurements are then taken. By the changes in their voice by. Heat or sweats or any type of what what might be termed a micro expression. Of guilt like your heart rate, increasing those types of things, and then assign a certain threat category to see if that person might be a threat to airport security, and so I don't necessarily know if these types of technologies are being used to monitor protests, activists and other moments of rebellion, but it is something to look out for. That pause was yeah that's. Terrifying. IS THEIR EAR recognition? Is that a thing? Yes. And so there's there's recognition of everything and it's almost like throwing something to the wall and seeing. What hits but the air's been it's a relatively stable part of the body. And that has been known since Al Proteon, which is said to be the father of forensic. Sciences. was using that in the eighteen hundreds as a stable way of recognizing or. Identifying the human body to catalog them, and so there are researchers that are working on every part in piece of the body that you could think imaginable as a way to try and. Shore. Up, this idea. which is just an idea that the human body is stable that the human can be categorized and identified, and we know that's Bodies don't work that way but you know the science does. Your book is called dark matters on the surveillance of blackness. We've been talking about this in the context context of protest. Why is this surveillance of particular concern to Black Americans? It's a particular concern because it's has been the state you know I say surveillance is the facts of anti blackness not only in the US but globally, and so it's been a concern here in the US for centuries we thinking about slave patrols, plantation control, all of these technologies that were. Put in place. To deem black people as. Outside of the right to have rights, but it's also why I think it's important to study the history of surveillance within transatlantic slavery within Plantation Slavery because it also offers US moments of resistance and moments of rebellion and escape to something different something that looks like freedom.

How Party Leaders Get Ready for the Election in Pivotal Pennsylvania County
"Pennsylvania, a working class area in the northern northwestern most corner of the state. Has long been solid territory for Democrats. Then in 2016, Donald Trump eked out a narrow victory. Now in 2020, the county is again seen as pivotal NPR national political correspondent Don Can you sat down with Republican and Democratic leaders in the county? Jim words. A 41 year old college professor, was named Erie County Democratic Chair two years ago. He wasn't in charge when Trump won here. Still, he's fixated on the numbers just 1967 votes, so a really narrow margin and so for me for the last couple of years, it's been staring at those numbers. There are so many what ifs. What if Hillary Clinton had run a better campaign? What if there had been better turnout in the city of here? But words also gives the trump campaign credit for its use of digital targeting for getting people to make personal contact with friends to find new voters for trump factor in their social media presence in their online presence, and the kind of targeting they did, in some cases with the help of foreign actors and others, it had a very significant psychological role. What says the Democrats goal this year is not to mimic that Trump campaign. It's to build on the enthusiasm Democrats showed in the 2018 midterms and to reach beyond the traditional base. To that end, Erie County Democrats have set up field offices out in rural communities. Words talked as he unloaded boxes of lawn signs from the back of his jeep bed once not jobs. We've made a lot of efforts over the last two years to really talk to connect with rural voters. And these offices or an opportunity to help us put some roots down in places that we should have been for a long time. As for Democratic strongholds, voters are highly motivated this year, he says, and having a woman of color Kamala Harris on the ticket helps boost energy as well.

Somebody comes They stay, you know, way back and with mask on and so forth. Democrats, meanwhile, are being more cautious on that score. Salman says he thinks voters see Trump as better at rebuilding the economy post pandemic. He acknowledges that Joe Biden with his Pennsylvania roots is a very different candidate than Hillary Clinton. There's no Biden equivalent to the lock her up chant at Trump rallies by. I think he's a nice enough older fellow. But look at his record. We've got enough years We've got four or five decades. Is to look at it.

"gop" Discussed on Axios Today
"The. Virtual Republican National. Convention kicked off yesterday with an official role call that nominated Donald Trump and mike pence for re election as the GOP ticket Alina train was watching everything yesterday and last night and is here now with her big takeaways Elena Sue one question I had was how much was the corona virus in the pandemic going to be mentioned we actually that was a big topic last night it was I think that heading into new that they wanted to spend a. Lot of time on programming around the coronavirus specifically because they know this is going to be a key priority for voters in the election in November but I would say that the messaging we saw around covid was really an alternate narrative of how the pandemic has played out essentially, they argued that the president acted fast and everyone else got it. Wrong. So I think that the messaging around the corona virus and what we saw last night, it was a bit of revisionist history. That brings me to the second point, which is there was a lot of fact checking that journalists were doing about the statements that were being made yesterday. Yes. We saw a lot more fact checking last night from the networks than we did last week during the Democratic National Convention, which definitely sparked a lot of criticism from people on the right on twitter and elsewhere last night. But we saw MSNBC and CNN cut away from live covered several times at one point motto who was headlining for MSNBC. said that they were going to try to keep it to a minimum, but they felt they had their duty to fact check in real time and that led to skipping a lot of speeches, missing parts of speeches, Jonathan Swan said that we would look for made for TV moments that hearken back to President Trump's reality TV background and we saw that last night with a panel, the president convened with a group of hostages that had been free during his administration. Yes and so the president and his. Campaign know that one of the best advantages they have this week and leading into the election is that he's been in office and some of the successes fees had while president and we saw them play that up tonight, the hostages six former hostages, kind of in a semi circle surrounded president trump and a taped interview from the White House, and it really spoke to trying to paint more of the president as someone who's freed these people and will continue to work hard to do the same in. His Administration I. Think it also kind of played on the empathy of the president he tried to connect with these former hostages on special level will the great people of Utah really wanted me to do something about the two of you and we were able to do it and a little bit of a miracle I. Think Frankly, it was a very hustle period definitely leverage that aspect of the office of the presidency tonight last night ended with Republican Senator Tim Scott, the only black Republican in the Senate. Mounting a pretty powerful critique of Joe. Biden. Yes. It was a tough assessment of Joe Biden's record on race Joe. Biden said if a black man didn't vote for him, he wasn't truly black Joe. Biden. Said black people are in Monolithic community. It was Joe Biden who said poor kids can be just as smart. As white kids either all things that Joe Biden has said and something that Tim Scott. As the only black Republican. In the Senate is poised to say and he he made it very personal as well as which I think brought this speech.

"On W. GOP. It is only July. All kinds of things could happen between now and election Day. Still, it's probably safe to say there are at least three factors voters are weighing as they decide between President Trump and Joe Biden. The first, of course, is he's handling of the pandemic. The president's handling of covert 19 even as cases rise in many parts of the country, the second, maybe racial justice and a demand for major change in how people of color are treated in the U. S. And the third is this big story about Russian bounties being paid to Taliban fighters to kill America? Kans in Afghanistan. President Trump tells Fox business He doesn't believe the intelligence I think it's a hoax. I think it's a hoax by the newspapers and the Democrats. President was asked. What if it is true if it did happen? The Russians would hear about it, and anybody else would hear about it that was involved. Joining us live. John Harris, founding editor of Politico and John. Up Until now, we've heard from the president's handlers on this, including the National Security advisor. Now, Mr Trump is speaking out. What do you make of his reaction? Well, he's going to a familiar playbook, which is the same that serious allegations are hopes and hope That's enough to rally his side that they behind him. Ah, he's used that an impeachment use that basically with every important controversy that's come before He's never had one arrived with this terrible timing. As you point out on all three of those issues. He's really on the defensive. Let's hear what the president told Fox business about the pandemic. I think that at some point that's going to sort of just disappear. I hope You still believe so disappear? Do Ideo? Yeah, sure, Some point. And I think we're gonna have a vaccine very soon, too so taking in account that that sound bite. Which of the three items do you think we'll have the most impact on the president's reelection isn't the pandemic and our major concerns about health and economy? I think it is because those clearly on turn trajectories are going to last all the way through the balance of the year. Whatever else comes into the news cycle, we know that the shutdown And the economic effects of that shut down Ah, and the continuation of the disease. We know almost to a certainty that those were goingto remained very much in the forefront. Of the news and they're correctly there might a frame this whole election year. Joe Biden's campaign has been described by some as less is Mohr. How do you think he's doing with the carefully chosen appearances and remarks? Well, I would agree with that lessons Mohr because ah, really, what he's doing with that strategy is keeping this weighs about President Trump and his record on and basically all the polling, including a politico morning console pull just today shows six out of 10 voters disapprove. Of President Trump's performance. 75% of the country thinks we're on the wrong track. So as long as Biden can make this keep the discussion about President Trump. Ah ah, he's in good shape.

"gop" Discussed on Marketplace with Kai Ryssdal
"No I know it's not technically the end of the year yet still. We're going to take a look back from American public media this. This is marketplace in Los Angeles. I'm Kai Ryssdal. It is Friday today the twentieth twentieth of December. Good as always have along. Everybody so look. Here is my working hypothesis. This is pretty much the last day before a month or so of people being away for a couple of weeks and then coming back to a couple of weeks worth of political story that is with reason going to suck all the air out of the room. So Oh let's do this. An economic level set of sorts before the news gets subsumed Catherine repels Washington Po. She is all alone today in our New York Bureau. You're a Catholic. Just the two of us all right so look. Let's do. Let's do this first of all. I want to talk trade now that we have a deal on the US MCA and and we are told a deal with China that we haven't seen yet but we're told it to deal Can we say we have a trade peace. In our time I would say tensions have eased certainly and whatever anxiety there might have been in in markets amongst retailers dealers and manufacturers and others that things would escalate that has abated. But even so what we know about the China trade deal is not that we we are rolling back all of the tariffs so that we would have the same kind of landscape we had before trump took office we were only rolling back some of the tariffs for whatever the steel well is phase. One deal that. Is that materializes so whether you would call this a piece or a detente. I don't know it's kind of like two steps backward one step forward word but but certainly You know there's some relief out there that things didn't get worse okay Let's do a another little. Look becky thing and that is this a year ago. Talk of recession was very high. Stock Market was jittery. People were nervous. What a difference a day makes an off a year makes rather in all fairness rush? Yeah it looks like a lot of the concerns about the future of the economy and the imminent possibly imminent downturn were overblown The yield curve has uninvited and the recovery has continued. Its now more than a decade long which makes it the longest recovery on record and look unemployment is still falling or is or is it least not rising so all of that is good whether or not You know we can expect us. Indefinitely definitely is a is a separate question business cycles or called cycles for a reason but at least in the near term it does look like concerns were overblown. Okay About the future. Then and what we were promised as you point out in a column in the Post today And you know the calendar says this is the two year anniversary of This week I guess. Sunday is the anniversary of the GOP's tax cuts and it's not a restricting the case to say that that what was was promised by the President and Republicans in Congress was not delivered. Yeah on a number of metrics in fact this toddler this two year old all tax cut is sort of behind on its developmental milestones right. We were told that the tax cuts would pay for themselves. In fact that has not been the case defecates deficits have continued to expand both because of greater spending and because tax revenues are not rising as much as you would expect during a reception year recovery because the tax cuts We we also have not seen supercharged. GDP growth trump as. You may recall. Said we should expect something like six percent growth instead. We're getting about two percent which is about what we had had before trump took office investment actually fell the last couple of quarters. I wouldn't necessarily blame that on the tax cuts but it does suggest that they were not They they did not give it a sufficient to overcome whatever trade war Concerns there had been and wage gains have also been kind of disappointing. We did not see the promised. Major wage gains that the tax cuts were supposed to deliver year over year and inflation inflation adjusted terms. They're about at the same today as they were before. Trump took office so on a lot of key metrics The tax cuts are not quite delivering. Now and I'm sure the proponents will say give it more time Right give more time but so far the metrics. Don't don't look so great okay. Ah I WANNA go sideways into the politics of this past week for just a second And I wanted. Let's completely set aside the stock market. About which the president was jubilant again today more record highs but I I want to ask you why things like consumer confidence and retail spending and all those sort of gut level metrics of this. Connie don't seem to be being affected by the the Hullaballoo in Washington. Well it's not not clear that they were during previous Hullaballoo either right The economy was pre determined. The the economy remained pretty. We strong during Clinton's impeachment and in fact. GDP growth was better. It didn't seem like impeachment affected the economy or I don't think markets substantially substantially one way or the other they seem relatively divorced from what another which may be is just a reflection of the fact that presidents don't control the economy they don't control stock markets? They get a Lotta they get too much credit too much blame when things are good or bad respectively And we like to think that policymakers I are are pulling all the levers but really they can only kind of affecting us on the margins even when we're talking about something major as potentially removing president Finally in super-quick. What do you think of my premise? That we're going to take two weeks and everybody's GonNa go away and then we're GONNA have two more weeks of impeachment and then finally Mila January people are GonNa tuned back in again. I hope you're right that we have two weeks where everyone gets to go away. That's where I think your your Prediction may be most suspect. Be some middle of the night tweets. Well Yeah Probably Catherine Bell Washington Post. Thank you Catherine. Thanks have a nice weekend on Wall Street late on a Friday and December or on a Friday in late December. More properly another day. Another record details when we do. The numbers.

"Gop it was a call for more civility so of course there are people on one side so yeah we need more civility impeachment impeachment does not promote civility one eight hundred nine five five 1770s six is our phone number up president trump had some remarks as he was getting onto a hell of after he's going to a houston in part to do political fundraising an area where despite all the publicity and the controversy the republican party with all these problems is out raising democrats and it's none close it's a ratio by more than two to one a people are more more interested in supporting president trump and his agenda than they are and supporting chuck schumer and his agenda even though chuck schumer's agenda can be very easily summarized two one word agenda no that's it the american people do not seem to be overly eager to support for and vote for no but meanwhile president trump is going out he's going to also consult with people about hurricane relief when he's in texas but before he got on board marine one on the white house lawn there he took a number of questions and by the way it it was striking because he seemed to be enjoying himself he seemed to be friendly unusually friend lee toward the press he isn't always and in fact he probably said more than he needed to or should have for instance he was talking he was asked repeatedly about these charges by senator flake and senator corker about the lack of civility and the the bitterness that president trump often expresses about his enemies and his critics in the media and he said this press makes me more uncivil that i am people don't understand i went through an ivy league college i was a night students i did very well i'm a very intelligent person i i the fact is i think i really believe i think the press creates a different image of donald trump than the real burial cursor d if you agree with that tell me how at i think most of the uncivil donald trump that we see is not from reports about backstage in the white house is not reports from unnamed sources from his tweets just read the twitter feed for goodness sake it's not civil and positive often and it's very striking or or it's the way he conduct himself sometimes at press conferences remember that press conference when that dossier first came out.
