http://thehill.com/policy/national-security/352421-dhs-planning-to-collect-social-media-info-on-all-immigrants. They've been doing this forever according to the valuable information Snowden managed to leak, but now it is out in the open, and I don't know if previously they targeted naturalised citizens. Beyond targeting social media, it also plans to look at search history and search results of the people being watched. None of this is really that surprising, when a government can launch foreign wars of aggression for selfish interests of a few rich people, there's nothing that will stop them from abusing their power at home too. With these legislations if they find something suspicious, what do they do? Do they just have the authority to arrest or deport you without any incriminating evidence directly linking you to crimes? If so, how is this different from a police state?

This new rule in the Federal Register is for reasons similar to the 19Aug14 post l made (q.v. "The Snowden Revelations", p.1): this is for "budget padding" purposes. DHS wants more money for prestige and party purposes. And Trump will probably sign-off on this budget bloating because he doesn't know any better. (Which is different than the pinko-progressives and the Bushie types that believe in the divinity of Big Mother gov't.)

"Predictive Analytics" (Snowden Revelations ll; p.5 05Aug) has essentially no value.

So the DHS wants to start a program for having-something-to-do purposes.

And if NSA cannot decipher food codes, how will DHS ?  :D

    • The moment you understand that Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى creates and choose whatever He wish, the moment you understand that He give ranks to whomever He will greater than to other.
    • Can you explain from where you have brought this thing? Is the reappearance of Imam Mahdi (atfs) dependent upon unity with sunnis?
    • Lets see what he is trying to say: He is saying that every creation of God is equally perfect & honorable.  Hence he has denied the following in his argument:  إِنَّ الْفَضْلَ بِيَدِ اللّهِ يُؤْتِيهِ مَن يَشَاء وَاللّهُ وَاسِعٌ عَلِيمٌ 3:73 And this Surah Al-Hadid, Verse 29:
      لِّئَلَّا يَعْلَمَ أَهْلُ الْكِتَابِ أَلَّا يَقْدِرُونَ عَلَىٰ شَيْءٍ مِّن فَضْلِ اللَّهِ وَأَنَّ الْفَضْلَ بِيَدِ اللَّهِ يُؤْتِيهِ مَن يَشَاءُ وَاللَّهُ ذُو الْفَضْلِ الْعَظِيمِ So that the followers of the Book may know that they do not control aught of the grace of Allah, and that grace is in Allah's hand, He gives it to whom He pleases; and Allah is the Lord of mighty grace.
      (English - Shakir) And this Surah Fatir, Verse 10:
      مَن كَانَ يُرِيدُ الْعِزَّةَ فَلِلَّهِ الْعِزَّةُ جَمِيعًا إِلَيْهِ يَصْعَدُ الْكَلِمُ الطَّيِّبُ وَالْعَمَلُ الصَّالِحُ يَرْفَعُهُ وَالَّذِينَ يَمْكُرُونَ السَّيِّئَاتِ لَهُمْ عَذَابٌ شَدِيدٌ وَمَكْرُ أُولَٰئِكَ هُوَ يَبُورُ Whoever desires honor, then to Allah belongs the honor wholly. To Him do ascend the good words; and the good deeds, lift them up, and (as for) those who plan evil deeds, they shall have a severe chastisement; and (as for) their plan, it shall perish.
      (English - Shakir) via iQuran
    • I have read it but I did not understand everything. I know most Muslims think that Muhammed (a.s) is the best prophet but if both are a creation of Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى then both are equal in honor but maybe not in value.
