UK Government Expanding CHIS Bill To Use Children In Covert Intelligence Operations

With the internet service provider in our current area continuing to throttle services, the ability to upload “Hamner It Out” episodes is limited at times. The videos are enjoyable to make because it allows for more commentary than writing; but, for now, both will be interspersed to provide information pertinent to readers and viewers of Sons of Liberty Media.

Breitbart News reported on January 24, 2021, the Boris Johnson UK government is working to pass legislation that would allow UK to recruit children to spy on their parents and even break the law while doing so. Before getting into the details of the story, this is reminiscent of the tactics used by Nazi Germany where the “Hitler Youth” and “Hitler Maidens” were concerned. Children were so brainwashed in support of the Nazis and Hitler personally that these children were enthusiastic about reporting their own parents for “perceived” transgressions in speech or action.

Jack Montgomery, writing for Breitbart News, relayed the story.

The Covert Human Intelligence Source (CHIS) Bill will, if passed into law, allow 22 state agencies, including the likes of Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and local councils, as well as the intelligence services and police, to recruit children as “covert human intelligence sources” — spies, essentially. Children aged 16 and 17 could even be used to spy on their own parents, and afforded certain protections to break the law while doing so.

Once you start taking action like this to put spies in people’s homes whatever the purpose, this does have complications. It is very important for Government to recognise that this is not something that should be easily done in a democratic state,” warned Sir Iain Duncan Smith, a former Conservative party leader and Cabinet minister, in comments reported by The Telegraph.

Everyone I have spoken to has been horrified by it when it has been explained to them,” added David Davis, the former Secretary of State for Brexit who famously resigned his seat in Parliament and ran for it again in a by-election to highlight the erosion of civil liberties by the previous Labour government.

It will allow 16 and 17-year-olds to spy on their parents. It also authorises them to commit crimes as well, so it needs to be extremely tightly controlled and those controls need to be greater than what the Government is proposing,” Davis warned.

The CHIS bill was amended to heavily restrict the use of child spies when it went to the House of Lords for revision, as part of the normal parliamentary process, but it is understood that the government wishes to strip these amendments out when it returns to the House of Commons.

If the government can retain a solid majority for its bill in the Commons, the Lords can only delay its passage, not having the power to outright block legislation the elected lower chamber is determined to push through in most cases.

Breitbart London tweeted out a “statement” by the UK police, “It’s your ‘civic duty’ to inform on fellow Britons breaching lockdown”.

It’s telling that the UK police are encouraging Britons to report people to the police who are not breaking any law, only dictatorial edicts. The lone European nation to withstand bombardments by the Germans, railing against the heavy-handedness of Nazi-ism, has its government resorting to the same tactics it once stood against.

But, Security Minister James Brokenshire defended the CHIS bill, saying, “Juvenile covert human intelligence sources are used very rarely and only where careful consideration has been given to the welfare of the child. It may be necessary to help remove the child and other young and vulnerable people from the cycle of crime that they are in. This includes helping to prevent and prosecute gang violence, drug dealing and the ‘county lines’ phenomenon which all have a devastating impact on young people and communities. Their use is governed by a strict legal framework and is overseen by the Investigatory Powers Commissioner. We are strengthening the safeguards which apply in the very rare cases that a child is tasked to participate in criminality to ensure that their best interests are always a primary consideration in the decision-making process.”

Hello? These are children! Excuse me for being skeptical when any bureaucratic moron utters the words, “governed by a strict legal framework” and “overseen by the Investigatory Powers Commissioner” – like that is some indication it would make the use of “juvenile covert human intelligence sources” acceptable. And, this bill is being considered to “allow”, more like encourage and entice, children ages 16 and 17 to “spy” on their parents and even commit crimes to do so in the process. That’s not watching out for the welfare of children; it is exploiting children for the convenience of the State.

And, if these “child spies” are used so “rarely”, then why is the government wanting to “expand” the exploitation of children, aka use children, to become informants against their own parents. What happens to the children, if used by the government to spy on their own parents, when the government arrests, detains or imprisons those parents due to the actions of the children? Children, even at ages 16 and 17, are extremely vulnerable, due to their developmental stage and process, emotionally immature, and dependent on adults for their care. Moreover, they do not have the life experience to make independent sound good judgment.

If these children are in a situation where their parents are committing violations of the law, the government certainly has other resources to rely upon than using children, vulnerable children, to conduct “surveillance” activities or to engage in crimes in order to implicate their parents. This has the potential to go sideways right off the bat, especially with the dictatorial lawless mandates the government is considering law that could be used to justify engaging child spies.

Let’s all remember this little tidbit. George Soros, aka George Schwartz, was a child spy who informed on his fellow Jews and his own family for the Nazis, sending many to their death. In short, he was an accomplice to murder and war crimes. In an interview with Steve Croft of CBS’ 60 Minutes, Soros acknowledged what he did and that he never once felt remorse or guilt for his actions. Does anyone need an explanation on how and why Soros turned into the adult that he is today? The Nazis rewarded him for his criminal acts and world governments rewarded his evil through lack of prosecution. He changed his name to hide what he did. But, when it was exposed, no one held this man to the law. And, Soros has engaged in repeated criminality through committing treason and inciting insurrection. Recently, it was the united States who extradited a 95- year-old man back to Germany because of war crimes to stand trial. Yet, the war criminal Soros remains a free man today, despite his televised confession to war crimes, and is responsible for funding anti-constitutional groups in an effort to destroy the united States. What is the difference between Soros and the 95-year-old man extradited to Germany? It’s called money and being influential in the wealthy, political oligarchy. It is an inequitable application of justice.

As they say, history repeats itself for those who fail to learn history. The UK is heading down a dangerous road. The only proof the government needs to see is the history of Nazi Germany, Stalin’s Russia, Mao’s China, Cambodia’s Pol Pot, and the war criminal George Soros.
