Involuntary Population Control: The Return of the HIV epidemic.

An HIV Epidemic is forecasted to return.

The World Health Organization reports a rise in the resistance to HIV drugs.

The alarming statistics display that in 6 out of 11 countries surveyed in Asia, Latin America and Africa, over ten percent of people starting antiretroviral therapy had a strain of HIV that was resistant to the most widely used HIV medicines. The WHO (World Health Organization) is now calling for an urgent review of HIV treatment programs.

How does drug resistance develop?

HIV drug resistance happens when people do not follow their prescribed treatment plan. Not having access to quality care will prompt someone to not follow their treatment plan. Patients who start to have drug resistance will fail therapy and can pass that strain of drug resistant HIV to others. People with drug resistant strains of HIV will result in an increase in HIV levels in their blood. The solution is a new treatment regimen which can be very hard to obtain for people who are in third world countries.

This may prove to be a return of the HIV epidemic. In the next five years HIV drug resistance can run up a bill of millions of dollars, claim 135,000 more lives and infect 105,000 additional people. This may be inevitable if nothing is attempted to prevent the situation.

HIV Drug Resistance will also ravage the Transgender community contributing to the return of the HIV epidemic.

Transgender women were born as male gender stated on their birth certificates and identify now as women. They are said to be at a very high risk of HIV acquisition. A study by the National Institute of Health and Gilead Science reports that among transgender women infected with HIV in Los Angeles, half of them were concerned about taking their HIV medication and hormone therapy at the same time. The reason they have concerns with taking Antiretroviral therapy for HIV and feminizing hormone therapy for their transition to female is that the drug interaction can be harmful. Why this interaction is harmful remains a mystery in the medical community. This concern may be prompting these individuals from taking the HIV medications or the hormone therapy, or both.

As discussed earlier in this article, the interruption of antiretroviral medication for HIV can make the HIV in the infected person HIV drug resistant and at a higher risk of spreading the disease. The center for disease control states that transgender women are at a very high risk of contracting the HIV virus. Twenty two percent of transgender women surveyed in five high income countries were living with HIV.

These are two deadly situations occurring at the same time. It spells trouble for the goal of trying to eradicate HIV by 2030. This can be an epidemic.

Between the unfortunate in third world countries who are not able to keep up with their regimen and the transgender communities adversities of bodily pain when combining hormones and HIV meds, there can be a surge of HIV strains that are drug resistant. When you couple that with the other possibility of this resistant strain being passed on to other people, it’s just ingredients for epidemic soup.

Rapid DNA ACT: Are we violating privacy in the name of Justice?

Rapid DNA: is it progress or is it a problem?

You can order a DNA report and get it faster than a dominoes pizza on a Friday night. You can now receive a DNA report in ninety minutes, it is a technique called “Rapid DNA. “ In the past it took weeks to obtain DNA results.

The first time Rapid DNA was used was in 2013. This technique helped convict burglars who stole $30,000 worth of items from an Airbase in Florida.

Bipartisan support from both Congress and the Senate were expressed for this bill. Now, this law is waiting to be signed by the president. This law will let Rapid DNA be utilized amongst law enforcement.

This law is titled: HR 510 Rapid DNA act of 2017. The intentions of the rapid DNA act are to quickly determine if someone who was just arrested is a rapist. In addition to that, the Rapid DNA act can possibly prove that someone is innocent.

The people who support this bill feel that tax dollars will be saved as DNA results can be expedited efficiently. This bill will lessen the backlog of DNA waiting to be tested.

Opponents of the HR 510 rapid DNA act of 2017 state a violation of privacy. By law, DNA samples can be taken without a warrant. It can be expected that more DNA will be taken from criminals and those arrested for anything. For low level offenses this may be misleading as multiple DNA can be traced to multiple people, this could possibly incriminate someone who could be innocent. What is alarming is the rapid DNA technique may render a rape kit extinct. The technique of rapid DNA has only been tested in single source DNA, such as a cotton swab in the mouth. Therefore, it may not be effective in multiple sources of DNA.

A cop can plant evidence on you. That has been proven time and time again in news stories. Let us hope and pray that with the enactment of the Rapid DNA law  it is not possible for a cop to plant an individual’s DNA on a crime scene to incriminate someone.

Tattoo Removal: Laser Surgery vs. Do It Yourself Ointment Creams

Tattoo Removal Procedures: helpful information on a task that needs doing.

It is not 1999 anymore and that barb wire tattooed on your arm looks outdated. Perhaps you have your lover’s name on your arm, you just got divorced and now you have a court order to give your ex-lover half of what you own, but you can keep the tattoo. Whatever your reason is, you made a mistake and you want that damn tattoo to disappear. You did not make the right choice when picking a tattoo, so make sure you choose the best method for removing your tattoo.

So what are the best options for removing my tattoo?

Well, let us briefly start with the worst option for removing your tattoo. Creams and tattoo removal ointments seem to be the worst option for tattoo removal. Why? These do-it-yourself tattoo removal ointment creams have not been reviewed by the FDA. Furthermore, there has been no clinical evidence that it works. It has been reported that these creams can cause unexpected rashes, burning, scarring, and possibly changes in your skin pigmentation.

The best option to remove your tattoo is laser surgery. In addition, the Food and Drug Administration states that the option of laser surgery is a safe option for removing your tattoo.

How does laser removal work?

When a laser is used to remove your tattoo, a pulse of high intensity laser energy pass through the epidermis of your skin and absorbs the ink pigment. The laser breaks that pigment in to smaller particles. You end up excreting or metabolizing that ink pigment through your body. In other cases the pigment is transported to your lymph nodes or other tissues in your body. Different tattoo colors require different kinds of lasers in order to remove it. Tattoos with colors such as yellow, green and red are the hardest colors to remove; however, colors such as blue and black are the easiest to remove.  Usually, more than one laser surgery is required in order for your tattoo to be fully removed. It may take 6 – 10 laser surgeries to remove your tattoo and you have to take a few weeks to heal between surgeries. The exact amount depends on the colors and the size of the tattoo.

tattoo removal Are there any side effects and pain involved with a laser surgery tattoo removal procedure?

As far as pain goes, it is said that the process feels like a rubber band being snapped against your skin by someone who hates you. Side effects of using a laser to remove your tattoo are pinpoint bleeding, soreness, redness and possibly scarring. It is important to note that laser devices for tattoo removal should be administered by a dermatologist, this is the only way the FDA is clearing the use of this method. You should not use a laser to remove a tattoo yourself.

Don’t Feel bad.

A lot of people regret their tattoos, you are not alone. Tattoo removal seems to be a big business. The FDA reports from a Harris Interactive poll from 2012 that 1 in 8 adults in America regret the tattoo they have. The FDA also reports via the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery that from the year 2011 there have been at least 175,000 tattoo removal procedures. There seems to be no stop in the increase of these procedures for the years to come.

Mind Control, how it works: The science and mechanics of Mind Control through manipulating Synaptic Plasticity.

People talk about Illuminati mind control, but nobody is able to actually describe how it works.

Mind control is becoming real and the actual process is something out of a science fiction movie. Keep reading to understand how mind control really works.

It seems that mind control starts with the manipulation of the learning process. That process is called Synaptic Plasticity. To be exact, Synaptic Plasticity is a natural process in the brain that is fundamental to the learning process. This natural process involves the strengthening and weakening of the junctions between two neurons.

Darpa’s new research called Targeted Neuroplasticity Training (TNT) is determined to increase a human’s capacity to learn. This breakthrough will create the mechanics and foundation of Mind Control as we know it.

mind control How will they do this? Targeted Neuroplasticity Training will electrically stimulate peripheral nerves which will make the brain more adaptive during the most important parts of the learning process. In addition, peripheral nerves are the on and off switches for actions involving the muscles, organs and a host of other bodily functions.

Through the precise manipulation of these peripheral nerves the neural connections in the brain will be strengthened. The intention for the Targeted Neuroplasticity Training program is to accelerate learning and decrease the time it takes to train foreign language specialists, intelligence analysts, cryptographers, and others. The goal is to use this scientific process to cut cost and save  time on training within the Department of State.

At this point, Darpa is looking in to invasive and non invasive ways to stimulate and manipulate peripheral nerves. To be more in depth on what Darpa has stated is that stimulation of the nerves through the skin can activate regions in the brain that involve learning.  It can create signals that may trigger the release of neurochemicals in the brain that reorganize neural connections in response to specific experiences.  Through this method, mind control is actually possible by controlling synaptic plasticity, the natural process on our brain.

The means of how this may be possible is by means of a microchip or possibly an injection.

So is this good or is this bad?

A delicate social issue such as this can be likened to beauty as it is truly in the eye of the beholder.

Let us start with the good in it. Increased learning and a smarter public sounds great. Perhaps someone with dementia or depression can benefit from Targeted Neuroplasticity Training. People with mental trauma can be mentally corrected. Possibly an obsessive compulsive disorder patient can be retrained to not do repetitive unproductive habits.

What could be bad about this? The unnatural feel is a major turn off. A microchip implant is surreal and scary. Could a microchip implant be susceptible to hacking such as a pace maker can? Is it possible that how a pace maker can be shut off by a hacker; a hacked microchip from nerve stimulation can make you have constant diarrhea or run on the street naked? Can a human be electrocuted if he walks in the rain with his implanted microchip? Will it pop out during sex? Will I accidentally put in my girlfriend’s microchip by mistake?

Is it ethical to alter the human body like this? We have witnessed what some groups will do for embryos, what about electronically controlled humans? Could there be a possibility that prisoners will be implanted to keep corrections officers safe? Could a new war in the Middle East be made in the name of democracy to microchip Habib so he does not shoot an AK-47 for Allah? It could be credible.

As of right now, microchips implanted in humans that execute targeted neuroplasticity training in humans to manipulate synaptic plasticity is far away. Although chip implants for payment and data are here. However, in a democracy we have a choice, right? Everything is tied to a carrot on a stick. You have two choices: stop being a rabbit or stop eating carrots. I suggest you do both.

Can Glutamine be the missing link in stopping herpes from reactivating in your body?

Recent study shows glutamine can prevent the herpes simplex virus from reactivating in the body.

A recent experiment concluded Glutamine supplements were able to suppress the herpes simplex virus in guinea pigs and mice. This research was published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation and conducted by scientist from the National Institute of Health.  The experiment lead to a conclusion that glutamine helped increase the T cells which fought off the virus and stopped the herpes reactivation.

In further detail, scientist infected mice with HSV-1 (Herpes Simplex Virus 1) and they infected guinea pigs with HSV-2 (Herpes Simplex Virus 2). Two weeks later, the animals were divided in to two groups. In one group, the animals were given a glutamine supplement, in the other group the animals were given nothing. The group of animals given the glutamine supplement had an increase of T-cells in their nerve tissues. T-cells fight off sickness in the body. It was reported that the mice given the glutamine supplement were less likely to have  a herpes reactivated outbreak in their body after they were infected.

Please note that this has not been tested on humans yet. There is no proof that if humans eat glutamine supplements or foods high in glutamine their herpes will disappear forever. I am not a doctor and I am not a medical professional. However, if I had herpes and I came across the research described in this post, I personally would look in to taking a glutamine supplement or I would eat foods high in glutamine. (Please make a donation to this website on the top right corner, any amount would be appreciated)

So what is glutamine? Glutamine is an amino acid that occurs naturally in your body. It occurs in the blood and the muscles. When the body goes through illness or injury the body fails to naturally make glutamine.

Glutamine has been used to counter the side effects of medical treatments. It has also been used for treatment in certain surgeries and other illnesses. Foods high in Glutamine are: beef, chicken, fish, dairy products, eggs, beans, beets, cabbage, spinach, carrots, parsley, vegetable juices, wheat, papaya, brussel sprouts, celery, kale and fermented foods like miso For Glutamine supplements, the recommended dosage is 2-15 grams a day.

Please note: there is no cure for herpes, at the moment. We at issuejab.com are not doctors and we are not medical professionals. Whenever you are on issuejab.com check our sources and you be the judge.

Tug of War between America and China over World Financial Influence

The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) is becoming more influential in the world.

Their reach is growing as Argentina is the sixth Latin American country to join. Argentina is said to have been going through financial difficulties as of late. It was reported that after Argentina suffered a debt crisis they were not able to get financing.

The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) may be perceived as saviors when they come to the aid of a country that would not have received it otherwise.

The AIIB is now gaining influence in the Latin world. This can spell trouble for the United States and its allies when you really take a look in to what is the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank. The AIIB was established in January 2016, but the idea of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank was floating around since 2013. Investopedia has stated that observers of the AIIB see it as challenging other international lending bodies that have America’s interest at heart such as: the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and the Asian Development bank.

America may start to look less like the “big man on campus” if more countries are able to get help from the AIIB when the main international lending bodies won’t help them. It can foster a loyalty for China and its values. The main value of China is communism, a concept that is extremely hazardous to democracy.

With six Latin American countries already members of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), the United States risks losing influence to China. With more Latin countries with increasing interest in the AIIB, the United States may lose its status as a major player. When countries that are financially hurting have “a new daddy” and it is not the United States, any command or statement from the U.S. will hold less weight, therefore, be less meaningful to the international world.

In addition to Argentina, below is a list of countries that have a membership with the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank:

Australia , Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Brunel Darussalam, Cambodia, China, Georgia, Hong Kong , Indonesia, Iran, Israel, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Korea, Kyrgyz republic, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Maldives, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, New Zealand, Oman, Pakistan, Philippines, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Tajikistan, Thailand, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Uzbekistan, Vietnam, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Peru and Venezuela.

Will America’s world influence be weakened by China’s new found financial muscle called the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB)? Is the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank a soft way for China to extend their red empire? Only time will tell. What is for sure is that the increasing power of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank is something that should be of some concern for the United States as the financial tentacles of China successfully stretch to every direction of the world.

The Death Traps of America – Developers are creating another Hurricane Katrina Situation

Inland communities will suffer another Hurricane Katrina situation in America which will result in death and homelessness on a grand scale.

Can another Hurricane Katrina type catastrophe happen again in America? Yes it can and it may be inevitable. Floods are the most common natural disaster as well as the most deadly natural disaster according to the National Science Foundation. Based on research results from the Annals of the American Association of Geographers, development on American coastal flood zones have decreased. However, development in flood zone inland communities has increased in the United States.

As global warming becomes the new normal, flooding is the cheese on the climate change pizza. A scientist at Louisiana State University calls the trend to develop in inland communities “worrisome.” It has been labeled worrisome because many of these inland communities are vulnerable to flooding. It must be noted that flooding in inland communities are a step below the seriousness of flooding in a coastal flood zone. Nonetheless, the damage can still be brutal.

Three counties in America at risk of suffering Hurricane Katrina like damage to their areas are:

  • Gulf of Mexico: Cameron Parish in Louisiana, with 93.6 percent of its population in the flood zone.
  • Monroe County in Florida, with 91.4 percent of its population in the flood zone.
  • Galveston County in Texas, with 82.8 percent of its population in the flood zone.

The National Science Foundation has stated that people are more knowledgeable about natural disasters than they were ten years ago but there are still many who are oblivious. A lack of knowledge was the root of the Hurricane Katrina tragedy. Lives could have been saved if the residents of New Orleans knew the seriousness of that hurricane regarding living below sea level and not staying in an area that is below sea level during an event that will lead to a flood.

As many people have left coastal flood areas for inland communities they feel they are out of the woods when it comes to the effects of hurricanes, such as flooding. On the contrary, they are not. Inland communities are in fact a danger zone in regards to flooding. With these areas becoming very populated, the probability of a tremendous loss of life increases if a massive flood occurs in a crowded inland community area full of people who were not informed of the repercussions of living in an inland community flood zone.

In addition, hotspots located in New York City and Miami have seen an upsurge in development in flood zones. As the cancer of gentrification is in stage four it is right to assume that these death traps of real estate developments will continue. Furthermore, many people can be displaced causing a homeless epidemic of mass proportions.

Make sure you know which coastal zone you live in to know how serious the impact a natural occurrence of Earth can be to your life. You may have to seek higher ground. Stay safe.

World Health Crisis: mankind at stake from many Antibiotic resistant bacteria

A world health crisis is looming as many bacteria are now antibiotic resistant.

Bacteria that were once controlled by antibiotics are now becoming resistant to antimicrobial drugs. In other words, a cure we once had for many sicknesses are no longer effective. The bacteria strains that make these health problems are now immune to the available antibiotics out there on Earth. The World Health Organization has listed twelve families of bacteria and some can be fatal. Now there is a race to create new antibiotics for these renegade bacteria before the world suffers a plague.

These bacteria are now resistant to many forms of antibiotics. What is alarming is that these bacteria can pass along material to other bacteria. This will make the other bacteria that were passed the material also resistant to these antibiotics. Now these out of control pathogens can have the credibility to cause chaos in the world of health as more solved issues in the world of health are now unsolved once again.

The WHO’s (World Health Organization) solution is to convince nations to incentivize private sector and public funded organizations to discover new antibiotics for these rebel bacteria. However, this may be a toddler step towards success as this situation has been briefly mentioned in the news months ago.

There is a sense of urgency for this situation. As bacteria become more resistant the gas tank of treatment options are running on empty. In addition, the private sector may not save the day in time for humanity, especially if there is no profit.

Among the diseases and sicknesses caused by these high priority pathogens that are now resistant to antibiotics are Gonorrhea and food caused salmonella poisoning. Strep throat, Chlamydia and tuberculosis are also becoming resistant but are not included in the family of twelve because they are registered under other programs in the World Health Organization. Also the resistance that Chlamydia, strep throat and tuberculosis have on antibiotics is minimal.

The population is at risk. It can be deadly. It will be inconvenient. Many of the bacteria listed by the World Health Organization are found in hospitals and nursing homes. These bacteria can cause infections from blood catheters and ventilators. It can cause severe infection and possibly death.  The World Health Organization is now calling for an appropriate use of antibiotics, a better rationing of new antibiotics and a better emphasis on infection control.

world health crisis

Below is a list of 12 bacteria that are public enemy number one and priority pathogens to the world of health.

These bacteria are immune to antibiotics listed by the World Health Organization:

1) Acinetobacter baumannii – A bactera that is routed from hospitalized patients’ sputum, urine, secretions and wounds. This bacteria is said to colonize intravenous solutions and irrigating solutions. It can also cause infection in organ transplant patients. Also, A baumanni can cause nosocomial pneumonia and nosocomial meningitis. It is labeled as critical by the WHO (World Health Organization).  This bacteria is often associated with Iraq War veterans of the United States Army, as many soldiers return home with this heath issue.

2) Pseudomonas aeruginosa – A bacteria found in hospitalized patients that can be deadly. It occurs in patients with a weak immune system. This can infect your blood and give you pneumonia. The infections associated with Pseudomonas aeruginosa occur after surgery. People on breathing tubes and catheters are at risk of being infiltrated by these bacteria. The infections regarding Pseudomonas aeruginosa with its health effects are: pneumonia, endocarditis (heart infection), meningitis and brain abscess. In addition, this bacteria is associated with infections dealing with the skin, eye, ears, bones and GI tract. It is labeled as critical by the WHO (World Health Organization).

3) Enterobacteriaceae – Another bacteria labeled as critical and associated with salmonella, strains of e. coli and other bacteria.

4) Enterococcus faecium – A bacteria associated with nosocomial infections, surgical wound infection, endocarditis, and urinary tract infections.

5) Staphylococcus aureus- Related with infections frequently found in the nose, respiratory tract, and on the skin. It can be puss filled at sometimes and if not managed it can end up in the blood stream.

6) Helicobacter pylori – These germs can enter your body and live in your digestive tracts causing ulcers in your stomach and small intestine.

7) Campylobacter spp – A food borne pathogen that can cause infection and serious neurological issues.

8) Salmonellae- A food borne associated pathogen.

9) Neisseria gonorrhoeae- Affectionately known as the clap, this bacteria manifest into a sexually transmitted disease that was once curable but now out of control.

10) Streptococcus pneumonia – Common cause for pneumonia and bronchitis.

11) Haemophilus influenzae – An opportunistic pathogen that can cause additional problems when infections and other medical inconveniences occur.

12) Shigella spp- Another food borne associated pathogen.

Counterfeit Liquor and Fake Food on the rise and possibly in your belly; the latest mob hit.

Fake Food and Counterfeit Liquor are on the rise.

Is it possible that you might be at risk of consuming fake food or counterfeit liquor? Yes, in fact you may have eaten or drank it already. From December 2017 to March 2017 authorities seized over 9,800 tons of fake food and 26.4 million liters of counterfeit drink. These seizures took place during 50,000 checks at shops, markets, airports, seaports and industrial estates in 61 different countries. According to Interpol it seems to be the workings of organized crime rackets.

It seems that the new victim for organized crime is your appetite.

The most seized product was counterfeit alcohol. The runners up after fake liquor are meat and sea food. You have to wonder when you are at a barbeque if this hot dog is actually a dog. When you drank a beer and said to a friend that “it taste like piss,” you may have been on to something.

Operation Opson to the rescue.

This operation led by Interpol was assisted by police, customs, food regulatory agencies from all over the world and the private sector. That powerful combination led to $264 million worth of fake food and fake drink taken off of the market place before consumers could have been harmed.

What is alarming that although Interpol and other agencies have thwarted the plan of organized crime food fraud rackets, there may be a good remaining portion on the streets. This means that you may be at risk when you have a cold one or a nice warm meal. Officials from Interpol have encouraged the public to remain vigilant as some fake food and fake drink may still be in circulation.

Furthermore, there may be new trends of fraudulent food and fake drink out there that could have been undetected during the seizures. For example, there was a discovery of counterfeit mineral water in this operation. In addition to unregulated food and fake drink, what were also recovered among what was seized were falsified medicines for cancer, HIV and diabetes. This is outrageous. Blends of different oils were passed off as natural olive oil. Fat burning pills which if consumed would have burned your life with a stroke or a heart attack was intended to be sold to anyone.

Below are the countries where activities were recorded along with their findings of fraudulent food and counterfeit liquor (not all are mentioned):

Rwanda: Fake whiskey and more.

Nigeria: Fake champagne.

Argentina: Killer fat burning pills.

Peru: Expired food, drinks, and preparation substances stored in a rat infested storage unit.

Indonesia: Fake condiments stored in an unsanitary location.

Italy: Fake wine

Russia: Substandard alcohol using faked federal stamps.

The fact that tons of phony goods equaling millions of dollars were intercepted by authorities all over the globe, a massive amount could be in circulation undetected. Moreover, with these findings of fraud world wide, the possibilities of these fake goods hopping in to your grocery bag are extremely high. It doesn’t matter whether you are in America or Africa or anywhere in between, get a taste tester. Now come on, let’s eat.

Who is really to blame for the May 2017 ransomware attacks? Could it have been the United States?

The May 2017 ransom ware attacks could have been encouraged by the last law passed by the Obama administration: HR Talent Act of 2017

The ransom ware attack that hit The United Kingdom and many vulnerable institutions in Europe has been a mystery. Even someone companies in the United States such as Fed Ex were hit with this ransom ware attack. Although the news media pointed fingers to a North Korean Crime ring that in our opinion is false. There is no crime ring in North Korea; the mafia, the army and the government begin and end with Kim Jong Un.

Well, if it was not the doing of a wack job regime, who was it? We feel signs points to an American policy gone wrong. Many news organizations agree that this was an NSA leak. When it was leaked it fell in to the wrongs hands. The opportunity for a leak could very well have been from the last law enacted by the Obama administration. That law is HR: Talent Act of 2017.

So what is the HR: Talent Act of 2017? In short, this bill was a recruitment frenzy of tech workers in the private sector. This includes software engineers, designers and many other roles. The aim is to keep these tech workers in the public sector of government for 12 months; afterwards they are free to do whatever they want. Well what is the problem? If you are retaining private sector workers in tech for a short period of time you will have to recruit a large amount. You can imagine a background check was minimal. You can also assume that many temporary private sector workers now have access to classified information.

When you really put it all together, you can see how the attainment and leakage of classified information can become a revolving door. Hence, this can make corruption and leaks a dime a dozen.

It was a good idea for the American government to retain their best and brightest in the private tech sector. Many tech specialists are not thinking about public life and the government does need to keep up with the times, for this reason I understand the bipartisan support for this law.

On the contrary, it may not have been the intention of the government to create revolving doors for leaks. However, it may have been this law that created the breeding grounds for the leaks of government technical information such as what is found in the National Security Agency (NSA). We can assume that HR: Talent Act of 2017 was also utilized for placing individuals in the National Security Agency, where the leaks for the latest ransom ware attack took place.

The next time the United States government wants to retain technical talent from the private sector, they should be paid handsomely and retained for three years at least. Why wouldn’t an enemy spy or a lone cock gobbler get paid by the U.S.A. for 12 months and then take the classified information to sell after the year is up? Of course they would! But did they? It is worth thinking about.
