The majority of people in the United States is leaderless and that is why it will be a victim of this intimidation. Their leaders failed completely. The natural leaders of the majority of Americans would be the Republican politicians and it is exactly them who do exactly the opposite of what they should do. Instead of resisting the politics of Obama with a strong opposition, they cooperate with Obama. They even have a majority in the lower house but do not understand to make use of it, and also if they would use it, it would be of little use because these leaders obviously cannot imagine that their country is on the way to a dictatorship.

Today I read an article and bring some extracts from it:
How face recognition changes the retail trade
Actually face recognition was developed to track down criminals and terrorists. But in the meantime the trade makes use of the technology to identify customers with purchasing power.
No longer science fiction: When people come into the area of surveillance the faces are recognized automatically – in a hall of a railway station, in the retail trade or in hotels they function equally.
Boundless enthusiasm, utter horror and creeping habituation – in these three steps soon still all technical revolutions have been accepted by mankind. What concerns the youngest, the IT revolution, we are probably at the transition from step two to step three. The powerful technique conquers every corner of our daily routine and does not only show human face but can even recognize it.
Retail trade and hotel business now want to make use of this and identify customers already at the entrance with face recognition technology to be able to court them directly as target group.
Normally the face recognition software of the British-Japanese Technology supplier NEC IT Solutions serves to track down criminals and terrorists. Now it is also to be employed in first class hotels and expensive shops to protect employees from embarrassing situations and improve service, it is said. When a customer enters the shop a video camera takes a picture of him and compares it with other photos from a databank.
When the picture fits to a regular customer or a prominent figure the software sends an indication to the sales assistants – inclusive size, preferences and a list of items bought earlier. The software even shines with intercultural competence – it even works when the person is lightly veiled or wears hat and glasses. Weight changes and aging is also no problem, all of this is already in use in a dozen of shops and hotels in the Far East, Britain and the USA.
Personalized advertising through Face Recognition Technology (FRT) could then be applied in shops or even in the open street. Though for the time being only gender and age is estimated automatically.
This Face Recognition Technology (FRT) will then probably only be the start. A further step is then probably to record exactly everything about a person. Here something I also read today:
With its decision to a DNA handing in the magistrates’ court Erfurt had referred to section 81g of the code of criminal proceedings. There it says: “When the accused is suspected of a crime of considerable importance or of a crime against sexual self-determination, body cells are allowed to be taken from him and molecular genetically investigated for the establishment of the DNA identity pattern and gender, for the identity establishment in future criminal proceedings.” This principle applies then when there is reason for the assumption, “that criminal proceedings are to be held in future against him because of a crime of considerable importance.”
Also that is not everything. The decisive step follows only after that. Because up to now it was only about the material side of life, but that is only some formality. The real truth is what a man thinks. It is something spiritual. It is something that really has continued existence and is not transient. And so it is something that determines a man. And people who know something about magic, about white magic and black magic, know that very well and they know how to appreciate it. And to know that what man thinks is the key to power. And to even determine him what he thinks, or what he is supposed to think, is the ultimate – is the peak. When one can determine the thinking of a man then one has everything under his control and has absolute rule. One just has to intimidate a man properly and to suggest to him the imagination that he will suffer disadvantages when he does not think so as the intimidator wants him to think. Germany was a good example during the cold war. The people in central Germany were intimidated through pure power and were so forced into line and the people in West Germany were intimidated through propaganda and were almost as much intimidated and forced into line as the people in central Germany. And the most prominent representatives of West Germany, people like Kohl and Weizsäcker, were the greatest victims of this intimidation campaign and those who not just succumbed to this propaganda but also did not put up any resistance against it. When the French were raped by a German dictatorship, they made a stand against it and practised Resistance, and that despite there not being a free part of their country from which they could operate. The West Germans lived in complete freedom and instead of making use of this freedom, to fight for the freedom of their sisters and brothers in the dictatorship in central Germany, they betrayed these people and demoted themselves to helpers of the slave masters. The names Kohl and Weizsäcker are most closely connected to this. And this intimidation campaign only now comes to its summit. The people who expose the crimes against the “guaranteed right to informational self-determination” and make them known to the public are getting intimidated. Here a further quote to the just mentioned DNA handing in:
The federal constitutional court sees no reason for this assumption, it reproves its decision, the individual case has not been checked adequately. Thus the establishment and storage of a DNA identify pattern wrongly intervenes in the ”right to informational self-determination”, which is “guaranteed” through article 2 paragraph 1 in connection with article 1 paragraph 1 of the Basic Law.
And it is about this “guaranteed right to informational self-determination”. What Obama produces with his intimidation violation, and with this he is fully supported by the leaders of Europe, see the highwayman action against the Bolivian state president and the highwayman action against David Miranda and the robbing of the goods of David Miranda, is exactly the same what was produced in the cold war. The people in West Germany were afraid that when they did not think as it was demanded by the East, someone could come along and might put a knife between their ribs. And that is exactly what the intimidation campaign of Obama aims at today, when a person does not think as Obama likes it, then he could send a mini drone along and let it explode. An intimidation campaign is only then successful when it is about a people of cowards.
A week ago I read an interview with Glenn Greenwald. Here an excerpt:
Question: How do you actually explain that USB sticks were taken from your partner at all? And how can it be explained that hard disks were destroyed with your colleagues at the Guardian? When all this is encrypted anyway and is available in multiple copies at different locations, something like this does not achieve anything.
Greenwald: So they also have argued at the Guardian. That they destroyed there hard disks with copies of secret documents has changed nothing. There are copies of that at many locations in the entire world. The destruction or confiscation therefore is, among other things, also a quite stupid action.
Question: Do you have an explanation, why it still has been done?
Greenwald: Yes, intimidation. With the Guardian exactly the same way as with the arrest of David. They knew that the destruction of hard disks achieves nothing, but the true aim was intimidation. And in the case of David they say: We had to do this to get hold of the files. But that would have taken them nine minutes, not nine hours! They kept him there nine hours because in reality it was about intimidation.
It is about intimidation, worldwide intimidation. The closest allies of the United States are the English and they are the ones who force this intimidation most visibly at the moment.
The heartland of intimidation is the USA itself. There intimidation is particularly necessary because it seems to be the only country on earth where a majority of the population is against Obama.
And this majority of people in the United States is leaderless and that is why it will be a victim of this intimidation. Their leaders failed completely. The natural leaders of the majority of Americans would be the Republican politicians and it is exactly them who do exactly the opposite of what they should do. Instead of resisting the politics of Obama with a strong opposition, they cooperate with Obama. They even have a majority in the lower house but do not understand to make use of it, and also if they would use it, it would be of little use because these leaders obviously cannot imagine that their country is on the way to a dictatorship.
There is for example John McCain. Already during the election campaign 2008 he did not counter Obama because he did not understand the concept of Obama at all. And also five years after that he still has not woken up but lets himself being used by Obama as his tool.
There is Bush II. Instead of putting himself into opposition to Obama he makes propaganda for him by showing himself with Obama in Tanzania.
There is Ted Cruz. Also he does not seem to understand Obama at all. He seems to be a worshipper of him already now. Here an excerpt from an interview:
Ted Cruz: ‘I respect Barack Obama a great deal’
Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, explained that he respected President Obama and even modeled his own campaign for senate after his presidential campaign.
“I think Barack Obama is an extraordinary politician,” Cruz said. “And I respect Barack Obama a great deal. I think he is committed to his principles, which is rare in politics.”
Cruz explained that he particularly admired Obama for managing to beat Hillary Clinton in the Democratic Presidential primary in 2008.
“If you look at that 2008 Democratic primary, there was no more formidable, unstoppable candidate — other than an incumbent President — in modern times than Hillary Clinton,” he said. “And Barack Obama ran a guerrilla campaign that empowered the people.”
He liked Obama’s campaign so much, Cruz explained, that he modeled his own senate campaign on Obama’s ability to empower the grassroots. He even gave his campaign staffers a copy of Obama’s campaign manager’s book “The Audacity to Win.”
