Never a country known for its human rights and civil liberties, Kuwait is now attempting to take the lead in the Gulf for the country most integrated with the technological control grid and biometric surveillance state.
This is because the small nation recently announced the passage of a law that mandates every person residing in Kuwait must submit to a DNA sample that will be stored in a massive database upon penalty of fines and jail time.
Kuwait has 1.3 million citizens that will be subject to the law but its 2.9 million foreign residents are subject as well.
Any person who refuses to submit to the DNA tests and data mining operation will be subject to $33,000 in fines and up to one year in prison. Any person who provides a fake sample will face up to seven years.
Kuwait now stands as the only country in the world that makes DNA tests and participation in a DNA database compulsory.
For how long?

Greece’s existing insolvency laws exclude a bail-in of the debt, according to Fitch Ratings.
So – one of the conditions for total capitualtion to German/EU supremacy is?
International creditors led by Germany are demanding that Greece agree by July 22 to adopt the European Union’s Bank Resolution and Recovery Directive, known as the BRRD, which makes it easier to impose losses on senior creditors and depositors.
“The landscape appears to be set for the banks to be restructured and for the potential bail-in of bank debt,” said Michael Doran, a partner at law firm White & Case in London, who advised on the resolution of Cypriot banks in 2013.
Whilst the fox hunt debate rages thro the msm it’s worth looking behind the curtain:
The NHS Test Bed programme is so crucial to accelerating innovation in the NHS. By creating ‘Test Beds’ of 1-2 million patients in a small number of selected cities, where we can assess the benefits of innovations in real patient pathways, and pioneering new models of paying by results, this new programme will allow us to unlock the potential of the world’s only fully integrated health system to measure and incentivise the impact of innovation, making the UK once again the most inviting place in the world to invest in and develop medical innovations.
So what is The NHS TEST BED programme?
Working in partnership with the 15 Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs) the programme will identify around five ‘test beds’ that will receive national support for implementing high potential innovations that respond to local clinical needs.
For example, this could mean equipping patients with wearable technology, combined with new patterns of working for clinical and nursing staff which aim to help patients manage long-term conditions, address any potential problems as early as possible, and help keep them out of hospital.
As part of the government’s commitment to funding large scale demonstrators of Internet of Things technologies, UK-based consortia focused on Internet of Things technologies for health and social care are also invited to come forward.
On July 1st, 2015, Spain officially became a police state. There’s simply no other way to put it. The “gag law” passed late last year went into effect on that date, and if you still have any doubt about how extreme and oppressive these laws are, let’s take a quick look at a summary published by The Local:
Amongst other things:
1) Fines for protesting
Under the new law, anyone who organizes or takes part in an “unauthorized protest” could be fined between €30,000 and €600,000 if the protest takes part near institutions such as the Spanish parliament.
8) Trying to stop an eviction
People trying to stop an eviction from taking place could be fined between €600 and €300,000. The number of evictions in Spain has skyrocketed since the beginning of the economic crisis. New Barcelona mayor, Ada Colau has been a famous anti-eviction activist.
10) Disrepecting a police officer
Showing a “lack of respect” to those in uniform or failing to assist security forces in the prevention of public disturbances could result in an individual fine of between €600 and €30,000.

The draconian financial punishment was imposed because Brussels bean counters claimed the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs had failed to properly administer EU farm payments.
The huge fine was last night (Mon) branded “hypocrisy of the first order” as the European Court of Auditors has failed to give the EU a clean bill of health for the past 19 years.
Details of the fines were uncovered by Whitehall’s spending watchdog, the National Audit Office (NAO).
“Disallowance penalties” imposed by the European Commission on payments made to farmers in England had cost £642 million since 2005, the NAO said.
Overall, it said that the UK had the sixth worst record of the 28 EU member states with 2.70 of every 100 received under the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) being returned to Brussels in the form of fines.
Only Greece, Romania, Portugal, Bulgaria and Cyprus had sustained higher rates of penalties.
Defra is considering investing up to £45 million, which it believes could save future penalties for England of between £215 million and £370 million in the period to 2021.
However the NAO warned that a new system of CAP payments introduced earlier year was more complex than its predecessor and was expected to result in a higher rate of fines – at least in the early years.
