Why do Brian Babin and ACT! for America want to bring Minority Report to America?
The congressman from Texas recently introduced the House version of The Threat Assessment, Prevention, and Safety (TAPS) Act along with the help of Democratic Congressman Val Demings.
These two elected officials justified this bill’s introduction on the grounds that “mass casualty attacks” pose a “threat to public safety” that require “a proactive solution … in order to prevent future tragedies.”
At a press conference on May 15, Babin unveiled this bipartisan piece of legislation:
We do this first to honor the sacrifice of these men and women in blue, who put their life on the line every single day to protect us in the vital role that law enforcement plays in the safety and well-being of our communities and our districts … And secondly to highlight a bipartisan solution — that we all are working on — to protect our communities and schools from the terrible acts of violence that we have seen and are getting to be almost routine.
The Texas Congressman then followed up by saying that “We know that once the first shot is fired, it is too late. We failed.”
ACT! for America, a national security group that is dedicated towards defending America from Islamic terror, even jumped onboard to defend this bill in a petition on their website.
The Threat Assessment, Prevention, and Safety (TAPS) Act introduced by Rep. Brian Babin (TX-36) in the House of Representatives and Senator Marco Rubio (FL) in the Senate does the following:
Standardizes and provides a behavioral threat assessment and management process across the Federal government. Provides states the training, resources, and support needed to stand up community-based, multi-disciplinary behavioral threat assessment and management units. Recognizes that behavioral threat assessment and management processes must become part of the culture and fabric of contemporary law enforcement. Urges that this is a matter of national security – if we act now and work together, we can save lives.
Despite its harmless title, many believe that the TAPS Act would serve as a pre-crime bill.
According to David Leach of The Strident Conservative, Florida Senator Marco Rubio’s version of the TAPS Act, S.265, would “encourage law enforcement to give EVERYONE a personal threat assessment (adults and children) and single out those they deem as future threats.” From there, this information could later be used to “stop dangerous individuals before they can commit an act of violence.”
Mark Angelides of Liberty Nation also opined on Babin’s statement and what it could potentially mean for civil liberties:
But what result would be measured as a success? If the individual has committed no crime, why should they have their privacy invaded and their life chances hindered with a government record deeming them to be “threat”? If the individual in question has committed a crime, then there are already laws in place to deal with them.
Groups such as ACT! America should consider America First alternatives such as tightening up America’s immigration laws, pulling out of foreign excursions which create refugee crises, and expanding gun rights so people can better defend themselves against terroristic and criminal threats.
Violating civil liberties should never be on the table in these situations.

America First Patriot Kris Kobach Believes Democrats are Using the Wuhan Virus Crisis to Push Socialism
U.S. Senate Candidate Kris Kobach believes Democrats are politicizing the Wuhan Virus to push socialist policies.
He asserted, “Many Democrats are exploiting the coronavirus pandemic to launch a full-bore push for socialism—making the socialist rhetoric of the early Democratic presidential debates look tepid by comparison.”
The former Kansas Secretary of State believes that Democrats are taking advantage of the Wuhan Virus pandemic to push for a “centralized, national health care system.”
That means “No more private insurance, private clinics, or private hospitals.”
Kobach correctly notes that “the communist country [China] that unleashed this plague upon the world was the epitome of centralized control.”
But for radical Democrats, that does not even enter the equation. For them, it’s control at all costs.
Sanders is not alone.
New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio called for “a nationalization of crucial factories and industries that could produce the medical supplies to prepare this country for what we need.”
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo established a state-run hand sanitizer factory, and has even threatened the use of state power to control prices. This is only a testing ground for even larger collectivist schemes.
From a big picture perspective, Kobach understands what Democrats’ endgame is with these calls for government involvement in the economy during the pandemic:
Many on the Left are also calling for massive expansions of the welfare state that have little or nothing to do with the coronavirus. This is what the socialist Left has been demanding for decades. Their demands aren’t about bringing the coronavirus crisis to a swift close; they are about enlarging the dependency class. They are exploiting the coronavirus for all it’s worth.
Kobach called attention to how private companies such as General Motors and Tesla are stepping up to the plate to produce ventilators, when many naysayers only think the state should be involved.
In his view, “Only a robust private sector free from government regulation will be able to pull the American economy out of the impending recession when this crisis is over.”
Kobach gets it.
The former Kansas Secretary of State is a certified immigration patriot and understands the value of limited government.
He’s the only choice for America First patriots who believe in constitutional governance.
