DNA Testing Company Caught Working With The FBI

Source: YouTube

Yesterday someone sent me a video by the YouTube channel The Young Turks called DNA Testing Company Caught Working With The FBI:

If this is true then Family Tree DNA lied to me and others, I had my genealogical autosomal DNA test done by Family Tree DNA specifically because they had the best privacy policy out of the big three genealogical DNA testing companies and I wanted to reduce the risk of something like this happening, and so I took a risk finally and I chose them over possibly better options because of their supposed better protections of our DNA / data.

If you are curious here were my results in a post called: John Jr’s Family Tree DNA Family Finder Genealogical DNA Test Results 😲.

Last year I heard about law enforcement using DNA data from one or more DNA testing companies, two of the other big three DNA testing companies claimed to not be involved, but I never heard anyone mention Family Tree DNA so I hoped that they were not involved in that; but if this is true then we were betrayed, and I am not happy about this at all.

If this is true then Family Tree DNA has lost me as a customer over this betrayal, I was cautious and worried about something like this possibly happening so that is why I waited so long before finally taking a risk and trying a DNA test, and I did some research before finally choosing the company with the best privacy policy only to have something like this happen to me.

Thank you The Young Turks for bringing this to our attention.


Family Tree DNA released an oddly titled press release about this issue called PRESS RELEASE: CONNECTING FAMILIES AND SAVING LIVES.

If what they are saying is true then the situation is not as bad as reported, but I still have questions and concerns about this situation.

President Donald Trump In Our Living Room?

My first two dreams are missing details because I quickly texted a few details of the dreams to myself while in bed and I went back to sleep, and so I only voice recorded my last dream.

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that it seemed to take place inside my parent’s house, and it was dark inside the house and I guess all of the curtains were closed so I am not sure what the time of day was but I assume that it was night.

I remember either being in the living room or walking in the living room, there was an unknown woman with light-color skin with long straight brown hair wearing glasses who possibly slightly looked like Jodi Arias sitting on the couch near the back door, and she was watching television and even in the dream I probably did not know who she was or why she was in the living room.

Before I could probably say or do anything The President Of The United States Donald Trump walked into the living room with us wearing relaxed clothing (maybe pajamas), and he sat on the same couch as the woman except he sat on the far left side while she sat on the far right side.

President Trump possibly slid a small table in front of him that you use to eat on while watching television et cetera and maybe he had a drink but I can not remember, and he asked me to get him some food and he pointed to a small refrigerator in the room.

I can not remember what I said but I probably replied asking President Trump a question so I could be sure about what food he wanted and if he wanted it heated up or not, but I guess he misunderstood what I said and he got a bit angry and grumpy with me like a grandfather and he angrily / grumpily said something to me that I can not remember where he probably told me to cut the attitude and get him the food.

President Trump’s response made me a bit annoyed and angry but I reminded myself that he probably misunderstood what I said so this was probably just a misunderstanding, this helped, but I was still a bit angry and I wanted to say something back but I tried to stay calm.

President Trump somewhat reminded me of my grandfather in this moment and so that helped me to avoid arguing back with him, and I opened the refrigerator to get his food and I saw my mom’s tall metal bowl with leftover food in it with her smaller metal bowl flipped over on top of it to cover it.

I probably dipped up a bowl of food for President Trump but I can not remember if I heated it up or not, I just remember giving him his food, and he started to eat while watching television.

I am not sure if President Trump was visiting or why he was there, he had no United States Secret Service agents or anyone else with him, and so it was just the three of us oddly.

I remember glancing at the unknown woman wondering if she was stable and I wondered if she might try to attack President Trump, I am not sure why I thought this, but I assume that there was something about her and / or something she did and / or said that made me think this.

I remember either daydreaming this or I daydreamed this trying to imagine what might happen and how I should respond and it really happened, I am not sure which, either way I remember walking to the kitchen to do or get something while still being suspicious of the unknown woman so I was ready to run back to the living room if I was correct about her being a threat.

I remember hearing the sounds of a struggle in the living room so I ran back to it, I saw the woman holding a pair of scissors trying to stab President Trump who was on the ground on his back trying to stop the woman from stabbing him, and so I stopped the woman and I took the scissors from her (President Trump was not injured as far as I can remember).

The next thing that my text message to myself of my notes for this dream mentioned was that I suddenly thought of and daydreamed about the movie Inception which makes no sense but I am not sure if this happened immediately or at some point after I stopped the woman or if this was another dream, and I remember daydreaming / thinking about how I felt / thought that the characters Arthur and Ariadne should have had a nice sunset scene together before they woke up in the real world at the end of the movie Inception.

I maybe imagined them having a nice moment together talking during a sunset after the scene when they swam to the shore at the end of the movie after their van crashed into the water before waking up, I probably imagined the others waking up first while they stayed in the dream a bit longer together enjoying the sunset and the moment, but I woke up and that is all that I can remember except for one detail where I noticed what looked like a clothes iron burn on the living room carpet near the other couch that had destroyed part of the carpet in the shape of the top of a clothes iron so I noticed an odd detail on the carpet like the character Saito did in the movie Inception.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the day, I think that my dad had spoken to Mrs. CH (the mother of my former male classmate DH) on this mobile phone, and the next thing that I remember is driving with my father to a fictional house that Mrs. CH lived like maybe my dad was going to her house to get something that she said that he could have and I guess I went along to help him load it on his automobile or something but I can not remember.

I remember us driving up a quiet street with trees and bushes across the street on the left side, and this neighborhood reminded me of the street that my dad’s coworker Mr. R lives on but even quieter.

Mrs. CH did not seem to be home so maybe her house and fence were locked, and maybe my dad wanted to still get inside or something but I can not remember.

I just remember asking my dad if he was sure that this was okay and if he was sure that he did not want to wait for Mrs. CH or try again later, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 3

All that I can remember of this confusing dream is that I was possibly in a fictional version of my parent’s house that was on an upper floor of modern building and connected to us was an office and connected to that office I assumed was a government / intelligence agency / law enforcement agency office, and all three sections were separated by a wall and door and the last office had stricter security and it had a male uniformed security guard with light-color skin with medium-length yellow hair with a submachine gun.

I was sitting down on a computer possibly in an area that reminded me of where my female coworker K’s desk should be at The BP Library where we work, there was a push door that was possibly open to my right, and my dad was in that room which was a kitchen and he was sitting down at an island table eating and probably talking to me.

The kitchen probably shared a wall and door with the first office, and you could see into their office because some of the walls were glass and you could see through some of their office into the second office that had the security guard who was patrolling.

I remember checking my email and I noticed an email that seemed to be a work email so I opened it, and the email message looked like someone had copied and pasted their blog’s home page so it was set up like it had posts with titles and images and text.

I started glancing at some of the text and I noticed that I was mentioned in one of the posts, and the post mentioned that John Jr (me) had shared my dream with them and then maybe that night they had a dream that was inspired by my dream and maybe they had a lucid dream.

I remember trying to figure out who this email was from, I assumed that it was from my coworker K because we had talked about dreaming and lucid dreaming once briefly not long ago, and I thought that this was cool that maybe she was starting to blog her dreams too now.

Suddenly I remember hearing a woman calling me and she tells me to try something, I am was not really paying attention because I was trying to read, but she seemed to possibly be in the kitchen like she either opened a door or window or portal and she was partly hanging out of it into the kitchen.

She hands me a spatula with some food on the top of it like she wants me to sample it so I take it and I ate it, I gave my thoughts about the food and I thanked her, and when I turned my head I realized that it was my coworker K.

I told her that I got that work email that she told me about and that I got another email, she smiled and she laughed, and then she said something that I can not remember and she closed the door or window or portal and she was gone before I could reply.

I then possibly heard her say something to me to remind me of something, it sounded like it was in my mind, and then I wondered if she had sent me a message telepathically so maybe she had not really been in the kitchen at all and maybe I wondered if she or someone else had tried to contact me remotely by thought from the real world or the dream world without actually realizing that I was dreaming exactly.

Besides my dad trying to talk to me from the kitchen I also got interrupted by a thin man from the first office who reminded me of a younger skinny version of the actor Robert Downey Jr, he was wearing a strange light-gray / white somewhat see-through maybe partly mesh slightly (very slightly) maybe rabbit costume themed onesie with hood (which possibly had small ears or points on them to go with the slight maybe rabbit or some kind of other non-human animal theme), which is crazy I know and makes no sense and I have never seen anything like that before, but he was wearing it like it was a relaxed dress day or costume party at work or something. 😀

The man walked into our house from the first office and he wanted to tell me something, and he walked me to a different area, and he possibly had a British accent of some kind but I can not remember.

We stood in an area near maybe a large printer / scanner / fax machine in an area that was somewhat like an office version of The BP Library, and he started to tell me some things that he said that he should not be telling me about the second office.

He said that the second office belonged to The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), that it was one of their small branches / offices, that they had strict security, that most of the workers were probably gone today for some reason, maybe he wanted to sneak over there and / or had before, and he told me a few other things that he has noticed about the FBI office that he was not supposed to know or share but I can not remember what he told me; I just know that he kept saying that I probably should not be sharing this, but… before sharing details anyway.

The security guard walked over to us with his submachine gun telling us that we were not supposed to be here, he knew the man talking with me, and he probably told him that he was not supposed to be sharing that information about the FBI office because he probably overheard some of our conversation.

The security guard joined our conversation because the two men knew each other and the man talked him down a bit, but I woke up.

The end,

Dream 1

I remember part of three dreams from last night, with the first dream taking place during the night in a slightly fictional version of D, and I was walking not far from the BP School Board toward a neighborhood by the BM Hospital; but I am not sure why I was walking this way.

It was a nice and quiet night, so I was enjoying the walk, but there were a lot of people having an event at or near the BM Hospital; and so there were people hanging out outside the building, and I heard some of them talking about a missing girl who was believed to have been kidnapped in the neighborhood.

They said they police were looking for her now and I heard police sirens, and several police automobiles passed by like they were looking for the girl; and so I continued walking hoping to make it home before the police stopped me thinking that I might be the kidnapper or something.

I remember wondering if the girl had really been kidnapped or if she ran away, either way I hoped that she was okay and that the police would find her, and eventually I walked home; and I probably told my family about the missing girl, and I went to sleep.

The next morning I woke up and someone was knocking at the door, I answered the door and it was my former classmate DH wearing a FBI (Federal Bureau Of Investigation) uniform, and he apologized to me telling me that him & his team at the FBI were here to investigate me/search the house in their investigation to find the missing girl & he/they had a search warrant & he showed it to me.

I told him that it was okay, he was just doing his job, and that I had nothing to hide in reference to the missing girl since I was not involved with that situation at all; and then I told my mom what was going on as FBI agents entered our house to search it & take evidence like my computer/et cetera.

I then talked to DH about how they would handle my encrypted & password protected files & my private files on my computer, I did not want to lose those files or to give them my passwords or to have them mess with those files, and I talked to DH about if we would get our stuff back & if they would replace any lost/broken items; but I woke up.

Dream 2

The next dream also took place in D but during the day, I was driving near BY Wok and the Tanning Salon, and I took a fictional shortcut between this area; and I saw a turned over old automobile crashed into an old abandoned & empty gasoline pump with an old man, an old woman, and a young man who all were wearing blue jean overalls like they were from the country standing near it so I went to see if they were okay.

Not far from them was a modern sport utility vehicle (SUV) with probably a woman in the driver’s seat, and the family standing by the turned over old automobile told me that the woman in the SUV had hit their automobile which caused it to turn over & hit the old gasoline pump; and fortunately there was no gasoline in the pump, and fortunately no one got hurt but they were angry.

They all were probably waiting for the police to arrive and so I decided to stay with them until the police arrived, but I woke up.

Dream 3

The third dream took place in an unknown location outside near the woods in a field out in the country during the night, I think that I was trying to avoid zombies, and eventually I came across a house & a storage building; and an older woman & man like the two from the second dream were in the field with a boy, and I greeted them.

They were trying to avoid zombies too and they wanted to take shelter in the house or storage building as well, but they were afraid that zombies were already in the house & the storage building; and so I told them that we should check the storage building first, and so we did & it was clear.

They then asked me to watch/protect the boy while they left to do something that I can not remember, and so I locked the two doors to the storage building while the boy & I hid inside the storage building from zombies; and in the middle of the floor of the storage building was a deep hole that went into the ground, and at the bottom of the hole was a trap-door/secret-door that led inside the house but I told the boy that it was too dangerous for us to enter the house during the night & I told him not to go into the hole unless it was an emergency.

Things were going well at first but at some point a female zombie & two other zombies knocked down one of the doors to the storage building even though I had a chain & two locks on the door, and the female zombie ran toward the boy quickly so the boy jumped into the hole; and I grabbed a large heavy metal wrench as a weapon, I told the boy to stay hidden in the hole, I yelled at the female zombie to get her attention, I prepared myself for a fight to the death expecting to die, I yelled something goofy like: “For Narnia!” & I did a battle scream/shout, and I attacked the female zombie like a wild animal fighting for its life (I was an animal fighting for my life).

I killed the zombie with the heavy metal wrench, I then fought the two other zombies as more zombies came across the field, but I was fighting for my life & for the boy’s life; and so I fought fearlessly & with all that I had, and I destroyed/killed all the zombies that I came across like a champion warrior on a battlefield.

I then went back inside the storage building, I picked the door up & chained it back in place the best that I could, I then went into the hole to see if the boy was okay & he was fine, and then we both hid in the hole until the next morning; and then the older man & the older woman returned, I told them about what had happened, and they decided to take the boy with them & find a safer place to stay so I said goodbye to them.

I decided that I would search the house to see if it was safe but my cousin DE walked up so I greeted him, he was trying to avoid zombies as well, and so I asked him to help me search/secure the house; and so we both searched/secured the house, probably without coming across any zombies, but I am not sure.

We decided to spend the night in the house, that night things were going well at first, but then zombies attacked the house & got inside the house; and eventually we had to escape to the trap-door/secret door, and we hid in the hole until the next morning.

The next morning we climbed out of the hole into the storage building to prepare to search/secure the house again, but my former classmate DH walked up so we greeted him; and he was trying to avoid zombies as well, and so we asked him to help us search/secure the house again.

DH joined us and once inside the house I noticed that it seemed that someone else had been in the house trying to fortify weak-spots in the house defenses, we saw no zombies surprisingly, but as I was searching a bathroom someone jumped from a hiding spot to attack me but they stopped when they recognized me; and it was our former classmate AR, she had entered the house at some point after DE & I hid from the zombies, and she had killed some zombies & she had started working to improve the house defenses but she heard noises when we were entering the house so she hid ready to attack or stay hidden.

She told us about her plans for improving the defenses of the house, we told her our plans, and then we started working together to improve the defenses of the house before it got dark; but I woke up.

The end,

The Wrong Path

Source: Wikimedia Commons

This was an odd, confusing, and uncomfortable dream in some ways. (I used words related to sexual orientation for added detail in this dream description, and I do not mean to offend anyone when I used them in this dream description)

This is the only dream I remember from last night, it started in a building that looked like a brighter & bigger version of the L Technology Building.

A male FBI agent had temporarily left work without permission, to meet with a teenager that had left school without permission.

The boy was probably in junior high school, and they met in a secret FBI room in the building.

There was something very odd about this meeting and their relationship, and it seemed very inappropriate and probably homosexual.

They were talking about something, and the FBI agent was your typical ideal good guy Christian type except that he seemed to act differently around this boy.

I am not sure if they hugged or kissed or anything, but they did seem too close and not in a friend or family type way.

After their meeting the FBI agent went back to his job, which was in a room that was like a 4 bedroom apartment / office.

There was a living romo, kitchen, dining room, bathroom, 4 bedrooms, but one of the bedrooms was probably an office.

Standing in the kitchen area was the FBI agent’s boss, who did not look happy.

The boss told him that he had found out about his inappropriate relationship with the boy, and that even though he was a good FBI agent, he had no choice but to fire him.

The FBI agent was shocked and the boss felt sorry for him, but he knew that he could not allow him to continue his job.

The FBI agent looked devastated, like he was going to die or explode, but before he could do anything, a man ran into the room.

It was a man who looked like the actor Elijah Wood, he ran in screaming, and he attacked the FBI agent like a wild animal.

There was a female FBI agent in the room as well, and the boss & her ran into the hallway.

I was in the hallway and the fight followed them into the hallway, so the boss, the female FBI agent, and I ran; but the fight kept following us like a magnet.

We ran to the end of the hall and the two men fell to the ground wrestling, but as they fell, three floating pieces of flooring like flying carpets or something, went under our feet.

One went under the two men fighting, and it came from the direction that they were looking at.

One went under the feet of the boss and the female FBI agent, but I do not know from which direction it came.

One went under my feet, and it came from the opposite direction that I was facing.

I looked down and I think I saw something that looked like a piece of a basketball court or courtyard, and my first thought was school or college.

The two fighting men stopped fighting and they looked at me, and I think they said that I was facing or going in the opposite or wrong direction of my path.

I stopped to try to understand what they had meant by that: was it about my choice of college was wrong and/or about my choice of a college major was wrong and/or since I am not in college, was it a reference to that and/or should I not go to college and/or should I not learn French?

But before I could ask them and/or think more about it, I woke up.

That was interesting, a dream that ended with some of the dream characters giving me a message.

To me this dream was about conflict, decisions, and the path they mentioned at the end (which I am not sure what/which path they were talking about).

To me that FBI agent had a conflict with himself, and made some bad decisions.

His decision to start that relationship and leave work secretly, was a mistake (going down the wrong path).

His bad decision cost him his job, and the man who attacked him, also represented conflict.

They fought each other and they both were very similar, and so I think that represented an internal conflict with himself.

I know it is just a dream, but I do find it interesting.

The end,
-John Jr 🙂
