Department of Justice FY 2017 Budget Request
Department of Justice
Office of Public Affairs
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Tuesday, February 9, 2016
President’s Request Invests in Department of Justice Criminal Justice Priorities, Including
National Security, Cyber Security, Smart on Crime, Building Community Trust, Among Other
Priority Initiatives. See reports on the 1033 Program & XO13684….21st century policing of
President Obama’s FY 2017 Budget proposal totals $29 billion for the Department of Justice to
support federal law enforcement priorities and the criminal justice priorities of our state, local
and tribal law enforcement partners. All law will become federal with no distinction or sovereign
indoctrination of states rights. This will allow for a federal policing authority as well as federal
justice priorities and mandates. The request represents a comprehensive investment in the
Justice mission and includes increases in funding for countering violent extremism and other
national security areas, civil rights and advancing equality under the law, Smart on Crime
activities, including increased funds for prisoner reentry initiatives and other key enforcement
initiatives. “Violent Extremism” is not defined, therefore open to interpretation down the road.
Same goes for those areas to be deemed ‘national security’. There will be no civil rights, only
those rights granted to you by the state as long as you don’t act, speak or protest against it.
Smart on crime is a deceptive way of saying AI driven systems will identify, target and eliminate
those the state determines to be subversives. Patriots will be deemed terrorists and the true
terrorists, the ruling elite that’s taken over our government, will be deemed patriots to be
protected at all costs. Whenever you see the word ‘smart’ they are talking about the ABI
[activity based information] collection and assessment of everything you do. This information will
then be analyzed by AI running on High Performance Computing platforms that will determine
your individual threat assessment to the state.
“The Department of Justice is committed to ensuring the safety of our communities and the
strength of our nation and the resources laid out in President Obama’s budget are vital to our
efforts,” said Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch. It is not the Justice Department’s duty to ‘keep
us safe’. Their responsibility is limited to presiding over cases brought before it as to the rule of
law. “With investments in priority areas from national security and cybercrime to community
policing, this budget will allow us to protect the progress we have made and build on our success
in the years to come.” Expressions of free speech, peaceful dissent and demands for redress of
grievances will be considered crimes under a totalitarian regime. Community policing is another
form of “see something, say something”. Total control with all eyes on the members of your
community. America is moving toward the rise of the Fourth Reich.
The Department of Justice’s areas of investment include:
●+$1.1 billion for the department’s law enforcement components, including the
Federal Bureau of Investigation, Drug Enforcement Administration, Bureau of Alcohol,
Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, U.S. Marshals Service and the Organized Crime Drug
Enforcement Task Force program.
●+$70 million for our litigating components, including the U.S. Attorneys, National
Security Division, Criminal Division, Civil Rights Division, Civil Division and the Environment
and Natural Resources Division. More regulations to further stifle small to mid size
business and creating more loop holes for politicians to continue to sell off our natural
resources to foreign concerns without criminal prosecution. Hillary Clinton is the poster
child for these types of traitorous deals.
●+$214 million for the prisons and detention functions of the Federal Bureau of
Prisons and U.S. Marshals Service. More prisons for more Americans.
●+$47 million for immigration, administration, technology [National biometric ID
system] and other support functions; includes the Executive Office for Immigration
Review, Office of the Pardon Attorney, Office of the Inspector General, Community
Relations Service, General Administration and Justice Information Sharing Technology.
●+$443 million for Justice Department grant programs overall (Office of Justice
Programs, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services and Office on Violence Against
Women), for a total grant program request of $4.7 billion. Billions more dollars to coerce
states to forgo their rights in favor of federal agendas. This represents a further selloff of
your personal rights, property rights, freedom and liberty our forefathers fought and died
As the Attorney General remarked in December 2015, “my highest priorities are the security of
our country and the safety of the American people.” Again, safety and security does not fall
under the realm of the Attorney General. The Attorney General’s office was originally created in
1789 to protect individuals under the laws of commerce and has since undergone an increase in
it’s scope of authority. Not surprising as the person that holds this position is appointed by the
President and serves at their pleasure. National security falls under the responsibility of our
military which is being abrogated year after year. National security threats are constantly
evolving, requiring additional investments to adapt to those threats in innovative ways. The FY
2017 Budget request provides $780.7 million in program increases to counter violent extremism,
improve intelligence collection and analysis, strengthen foreign partnerships and address critical
law enforcement technology challenges. See again Obama’s 1033 Program and XO 13684. They
are moving toward Federal policing vs. local and state law enforcement. “Improving intelligence
collection” means increasing the amount of ABI [personal information] being collected on
everyone in their goal to ‘Master the Human Domain’. The IOT that sits on the GIG will plug
everyone into these grids as a human network node whereby you can be disconnected at any time
for any reason. As indicated above, they are moving towards a global policing policy that will
drop a digital net over all people in all countries. This is the ‘collaberation’ they are referring to.
Today’s national security and crime threats require that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
maintain an interconnected and nimble workforce. The complexities of today’s National Security
work dictate that the FBI be in an interconnected workspace [this is double speak for combining
all law enforcement entities into threat fusion centers] to promote internal information sharing.
A new modern FBI facility will consolidate disparate worksites in to one common location and
exploit synergies previously stovepiped in the FBI. The men and women of the FBI are critical to
protecting national security, and this request demonstrates our commitment to invest in their
safety and provide them with an appropriate environment conducive to their important work.
Threat fusion centers operating under the direction of a federal police force.
The FY 2017 request supports a comprehensive national security strategy towards countering
violent extremism (CVE) in U.S. communities. The recent tragedy in San Bernardino is a painful
reminder that this work is critical to achieving a peaceful society, and the department is
committed to addressing the multi-faceted nature of this crime problem in FY 2017. Supported
by Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) and the Office of Justice Programs (OJP) grants,
the department will foster community-led CVE efforts and emphasize trusted partnerships
between public safety agencies and local residents and community organizations. This goes to
Mastering The Human Domain under the auspices of ‘winning the hearts and minds’ of the
communities at large. Grant funding through the OJP will also provide training and assistance to
local efforts and continue to support research to better understand violent extremism and
advance evidence-based strategies for prevention and intervention. Again, “violent extremism” is
not defined and as we’ve seen all too often in the past, is later left up to whatever definition will
suit the needs of government. U.S. Attorneys will expand their community presence and enhance
federal engagement and support to local communities. These efforts will work to counter violent
extremism encouraged by both international and homegrown actors. [ Ibid-previous comment]
The department must continue to address worldwide threats by enhancing its intelligence
capacity and capabilities and strengthening coordination with foreign partners. How does this
play into enforcing the laws within our own borders? The FY 2017 request includes resources for
the FBI to improve collaboration with the Intelligence Community (IC) through enhanced
intelligence programs and leveraging the common IC information technology (IT) infrastructure.
The request also supports the FBI’s new Biometrics Technology Center, which will enhance
biometric investigations. This sounds a lot like pre crime technology. The request will also
improve the FBI ability to conduct physical surveillance on the highest priority targets. The FY
2017 request includes resources to improve evidence sharing and extraditions with our foreign
partners and overseas security sector assistance programs operations. The department’s foreign
experts are best situated to build the strong overseas partnerships that are essential to joint
efforts to fight terrorism and transnational crime. This is a global police force. This mimics the
efforts of combining domestic law enforcement entities on the local and state level into a federal
policing force – federalizing all law enforcement activities who will act at the behest of
government and not the people. This transition is outlined in Obama’s XO 13684 and supported
by his 1033 Program from an equipment standpoint whereby a federal police force would be
The FBI must also adapt to evolving communication technologies, anonymization, and encryption.
Law enforcement faces an increased threat of Going Dark – the degradation of law enforcement’s
ability to lawfully access, collect, and intercept real-time communications and stored data. There
is no lawful premise that provides law enforcement the right to collect and intercept data on
every law abiding citizen. Again, you are being told you must give up certain freedoms and
liberties so government can provide you with a ‘perception’ of safety, when in reality you will get
neither and lose both. The FY 2017 request includes critical resources to develop and acquire
tools to address the challenges Going Dark poses to law enforcement and national security.

The Department of Justice has a unique and critical role in cyber security that emphasizes
countering and mitigating cyber threats, including by investigating, prosecuting, and providing
legal and policy support to other departments for intrusion and cybercrime cases. The FY 2017
Budget provides $121.1 million in additional resources to investigate and address computer
intrusions and cybercrimes, defend the security of the department’s critical information
networks, and protect against insider threats. This request provides resources to enhance the
technical capabilities of FBI investigative personnel, increase the number of cyber investigations,
and improve cyber collection and analysis. This goes to restricting your first amendment rights on
the internet. Cybercrime is not defined. Does it pertain to damage or loss to another’s data or
hardware? Does it pertain to theft of data for the personal gain? Does it pertain to speaking out
against the government – acts of sedition? I don’t know as it is not specifically defined. I guess we
will have to wait and find out how the definition of ‘cyber crime’ is interpreted as time goes on.
Building on the significant investments made in FY 2015 and FY 2016, this request also provides
additional resources for the Justice Information Sharing Technology (JIST) account to maintain
and strengthen the department’s cyber security environment: to counter cyber threats and to
ensure its personnel have unimpeded access to the Information Technology (IT) systems,
networks, and data necessary to achieve their missions. Similarly, the department requests
additional resources for the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), to enhance its ability to
combat insider threats and to enhance its cyber security posture. This is centralized data
collection without the checks and balances of independent government agencies. I would take
this one step further to speculate there will be no accountability and no oversight as AI running
on super computing platforms will be executing all of the activities in this regard.

Smart on Crime
While we must remain vigilant in our efforts to stop violent crime, we cannot simply prosecute
and incarcerate our way into becoming a safer nation. Then why an additional $214 million for
prison facility expansion? The FY 2017 budget invests an additional $246.9 million to support
Smart on Crime programs. The Smart on Crime initiative focuses on effectively using federal
resources for the most significant federal law enforcement priorities—including violent
crime—and implementing a series of commonsense reforms to reduce unnecessarily long
sentences for low-level, nonviolent drug offenders. The Smart on Crime policies also bolster
prevention and reentry programs to deter crime, reduce recidivism, and create pathways of
opportunity for eligible candidates.
The department’s plan focuses federal resources on, and directs prosecutors to pursue, cases
implicating the most substantial federal interests, rather than prioritizing the sheer number of
prosecutions. A red flag should go up whenever the word “smart” is placed in the description of a
government program or technology. Smart is code for autonomous AI systems that will make
decisions that will directly effect you with no individual accountability within government.
Considering alternatives to incarceration for low-level, non-violent offenses also strengthens our
justice system and places a lower financial burden on the budget. This means increased use of
diversion programs, such as drug courts, that reduce taxpayer expense and have the potential to
be successful at preventing recidivism. When imprisonment is appropriate, sentencing should
reflect the individualized circumstances of the case.
We must also provide necessary care for inmates by expanding mental health services, medical
treatments, and reducing the use and need for restrictive housing. To better prevent recidivism,
it is important to reduce barriers to reentry for formerly incarcerated individuals. This includes
emphasizing reentry programs, and revisiting rules and regulations that make it harder for these
individuals to find a job, an education, or affordable housing. What we will inevitably end up with
is more prison facilities that will need to be filled with more Americans as most of the prisons in
America today have been privatized – they are for profit corporations.

Building Community Trust
The FY 2017 Budget includes $129.4 million in increases to further the efforts the department
and its state and local law enforcement partners have made to build and sustain community trust.
Building trust and nurturing legitimacy on both sides of the police/citizen divide is the
foundational principle underlying the nature of relations between law enforcement agencies and
the communities they serve. Law enforcement cannot build community trust if it is seen as an
occupying force coming in from outside to impose control on the community. This is an
asymmetrical warfare tactic. The US military practiced this technique on the people of Iraq and
Afghanistan. You may know it better as “winning the hearts and minds of the enemy”. They have
now authorized a budget that will provide the necessary funding for programs that will do just
that here in America. See Obama’s XO 13684…21st Century Policing of America. See also the US
Military [SOCOM] on the Jade II AI software program and it’s civilian implications and how it will
be integrated into GeoInt on the GIG creating a planetary C2 system.
Through the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) and other components, the
department is making good on its pledge to provide law enforcement with access to the tools
and support they need to do their jobs as safely and effectively as possible. With the launch of its
National Initiative for Building Community Trust and Justice, the department is striving to
strengthen the partnerships between community members and law enforcement professionals at
every level of government.
Through the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing, the department is bringing law
enforcement leaders and experts together to provide strong, national direction on a scale not
seen in nearly half a century. And going forward, the department intends to continue to use
every tool at its disposal to enhance its capacity to combat crime while restoring public trust.
Make no mistake, this is an asymmetrical warfare tactic which has been tried and true in Iraq and
Afghanistan. If you asked the people there, I wonder how well they would say that strategy
worked out for them.

Enhancing Public Safety
The department’s mission and responsibility is to investigate and prosecute those who break
federal laws. Continued investments to uphold its commitments are needed to strengthen the
department’s ability to protect the health and well-being of our Nation’s citizens, and have the
flexibility to address threats as they emerge. Simply maintaining existing law enforcement
capacity is not sufficient to meet the demands of this commitment. For FY 2017, the department
requests $164.2 million in additional investments to address the threats of violent crime and illicit
drugs, and to strengthen the litigating divisions of the department.
In FY 2017, the department is requesting additional resources to respond to the recent increase
in heroin abuse and support increased prosecution of drug trafficking organizations along the
Southwest Border. Isn’t the US government the largest trafficker of illegal drugs in the world?
The funding will create four new enforcement groups, including support personnel and
operational funding, to counteract growing heroin abuse in the United States. Aren’t Americans
already burdened with the increasing amount of law enforcement agencies being created. Every
American is now a felon as explained in the book by Harvey Silverglate. On average, every
American commits at least 3 felonies a day and with the proper surveillance and computing
power like that proposed under Obama’s XO on HPC [High Performance Computing], each and
every one of us could be put away for a long time under the existing laws on the books, yet this
budget seeks to increase those odds.
The Budget request supports significant investments that focus on combatting violent crime in
the U.S. and support the President’s initiatives on reducing gun violence. It is quite clear the
regimes initiative to reduce gun violence centers around their desire to disarm the American
people. All past dictators agree, a disarmed citizenry lends itself well to an enslaved citizenry
that will cow-tow to the whims of an overbearing, tyrannical government. The request includes
funding to enhance the enforcement of existing federal firearms laws and expand the Bureau of
Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ (ATF) regulatory capacity. Funding is also requested
for the FBI to maintain FY 2016 investments in the National Instant Criminal Background Check
System (NICS). As I explained above, with the right computing power, everyone will be identified
and classified as a felon in this data base effectively making all of us ineligible to own a firearm
under existing laws.
The investments to combat violent crime also include resources for the U.S. Marshals Service
(USMS) to support hiring of additional Deputy U.S. Marshals and the creation of a new Regional
Fugitive Task Force to apprehend violent fugitives. Could newly classified felons be categorized
as violent fugitives?
The department’s request also invests funding in litigating divisions to enforce laws that address
economic competition, animal welfare, immigration, and to ensure public safety. More
regulations to enforce, resulting in more people being charged with violations. The department
seeks to improve the Antitrust Division’s ability to promote economic competition, strengthen
the Environment and Natural Resources Division’s ability to enforce animal welfare laws through
the development of a new animal welfare enforcement program, augment the Civil Division’s
immigration litigation capabilities, and to provide security services at U.S. Trustee meetings.

Protecting Vulnerable Populations
The department’s priority of upholding the civil and constitutional rights of all Americans,
particularly the most vulnerable members of our society, remains vital importance. Accomplishing
this requires resources to investigate, litigate, conduct outreach, and provide capacity-building
education, training, and technical assistance. More welfare programs. The FY 2017 President’s
Budget will address these needs by dedicating an additional $80.7 million to these tasks, thereby
enhancing the lives of the country’s vulnerable populations. Obama’s promise of ‘hope and
change’ directed at the nations poor and lower middle class has been a monumental failure.
The nation’s vulnerable populations deserve the same rights, opportunities, and protections from
injustices as the rest of society. The Administration and the department are committed to
accomplishing this goal. The FY 2017 President’s Budget requests funding to prevent and
investigate elder abuse and fraud, particularly health care fraud, which remains a top priority for
the department. I guess this is why we have ‘end of life’ planning for the elderly and hopelessly
infirmed under Obamacare. The Budget will also address environmental concerns in Indian
Our nation’s children and youth are a vulnerable demographic group. At a national summit on
Youth Violence Prevention last year, the Attorney General spoke of the importance of providing
services to children exposed to violence in order to break the cycle of violence. The FY 2017
request includes additional funding to do just that. Additional resources are requested to ensure
the nation’s police are properly trained to interact with children and people with disabilities, and
to support enforcement, technical assistance, and the issuance of guidance and regulations
related to the Americans with Disabilities Act. The underlying cause of violence in these
‘underprivleged’ segments of society is poverty. Creating more welfare services and increasing
the roles of people on them will result in an expansion of violent crime in these demographics.

Mission Critical Infrastructure
In order to maintain an effective and efficient Department of Justice, the department must
maintain a robust infrastructure to support its investigative and prosecutorial enterprises. The
department’s request of $179.1 million addresses gaps in critical infrastructure, including
information technology (IT) system improvements that support law enforcement and litigating
components, facility construction and maintenance, policy oversight, and personnel security
investments. More surveillance and unauthorized data collection on the American people.
Resources are requested to upgrade outdated IT systems, enhance capabilities of existing
systems, and construct and maintain facilities. Resources for the USMS Office of Professional
Responsibility and the department’s policy offices are included to enhance policy analysis,
coordination, and compliance functions Finally, resources are requested to address the
department’s current backlog of security investigations of both federal employees and
contractors and future security investigation needs. This has previously been explained to you
above [ie., we will all be classified as felons once they have the appropriate computing power in
place driven by AI i with the means to target and identify each and every American for felonies

State, Local and Tribal Law Enforcement
The Department of Justice strongly supports its partnerships with state, local, and tribal entities.
The FY 2017 Budget maintains its commitments to state, local, and tribal law enforcement
partners without reducing the department’s federal operational role. Simultaneously,
efficiencies are identified to ensure that federal resources are being targeted to the most
effective grant programs. As they serve the needs of government. The FY 2017 discretionary and
mandatory request for state, local, and tribal law enforcement assistance is $4.7 billion, including
discretionary enhancements of $442.7 million
The FY 2017 request for OJP totals $4.2 billion, including $1.6 billion for discretionary grant
programs and $2.6 billion for mandatory grant programs. It includes $326.2 million in
discretionary enhancements, including increased funding for an indigent defense initiative,
Second Chance Prisoner Reentry, Justice Reinvestment, and juvenile justice programs, and new
funding to support the Violence Reduction Network.
The FY 2017 request for COPS totals $286 million, including $88 million in enhancements. The
COPS request includes an increase of $42 million for the COPS Hiring Program.
The FY 2017 request for the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) totals $489 million.
OVW’s Budget includes a total of $28.5 million in enhancements. The Budget includes
enhancements of $11.25 million for Improving Criminal Justice Responses to Sexual Assault,
Domestic Violence, Dating Violence and Stalking Program (Arrest), $7.5 million for Legal
Assistance to Victims and $6 million for OVW’s Campus Violence Program.

Public Safety In Indian Country
The United States has a unique legal and political relationship with American Indian tribes and
Alaska Native communities as provided by the Constitution, treaties, court decisions, and federal
statutes. Unique indeed, the federal government has screwed them with every opportunity that
presented itself regarding treaties, court decisions and federal statutes. The Department of
Justice has an important legal and moral responsibility to prosecute violent crime in Indian
Country because under current law, in much of Indian Country, the department alone has the
authority to seek an appropriate sentence when a major crime has been committed. Federal
investigation and prosecution of serious violent crime in Indian Country is often the primary
avenue of protection for the victims of these crimes. State sovereignty boundaries will be
The FY 2017 President’s Budget requests $417.6 million in total resources for public safety
initiatives in Indian Country. Investments support activities across many Department of Justice
components that address a range of criminal and civil justice issues facing Native American
communities. A highlight is the COPS Tribal Resources Grant Program, which facilitates tribal
access to critical information sharing systems. The increase will support the department’s Tribal
Access Program for National Crime Information that was launched in August 2015 allowing tribes
to more effectively serve and protect their tribal members by ensuring the exchange of critical
data across systems, such as those managed by the Criminal Justice Information Services Division
of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Wave more money in front of struggling people to attach
more strings to their autonomy. The department is also requesting resources to strengthen the
enforcement of environmental laws on tribal lands, and to support consultation with tribes and
coordination of tribal policies through the Office of Tribal Justice. The native Americans have
always been much better stewards of the environment than the federal government’s ever been.
