Here we have all the features of the no-fly list, plus a heapin'-helpin' of Chinese "social-credit score".

Of course, nothing's mentioned about actually charging anyone under this bill. The plebs will merely be told they can't [insert normal-sounding constitutionally-protected activity] when they try to do it. Just like those 'troublemakers' who can't board the planes now.

There's an important distinction here. Because if anything was dredged up (or made up) during this "behavioral assessment" that was actually chargeable, then you would have the right to:
1. Know the evidence against you.
2. Confront opposition 'witnesses'
3. Have a right to a lawyer, at .gov expense if necessary.

No; you won't be 'charged', just 'ajudicated' in a "civil, administrative" process, "safe" from review by pesky media. Maybe they'll have an appeals route you can take, after 10-15 years of lawsuits by the ACLU.
