According to CNN, the Biden caliphate is looking into hiring private contractors to spy on Americans without a warrant because the federal government is not allowed to. And don’t you believe for one minute that they will only be investigating cr4iminals. If you are a vocal trump supporter, you will be fair game. If you don’t believe in vaccines, you will be a target. If you disagree with Democrats on anything, you will be a target.

CNN reported:

“The plan being discussed inside DHS, according to multiple sources, would, in effect, allow the department to circumvent” laws that limit what the federal government can do in surveilling U.S. citizens without a warrant. A source familiar with the effort said it is not about decrypting data but rather using outside entities who can legally access these private groups to gather large amounts of information that could help DHS identify key narratives as they emerge.”

“Gathering information on US citizens — no matter how abhorrent their beliefs — raises instant constitutional and legal challenges. Civil liberties advocates and privacy hawks have long criticized any efforts to collect even publicly available information on Americans in bulk as a violation of Americans’ First and Fourth Amendment rights.”

Former Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows responded:

“They spied on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and skated by with no consequences… and now they want to spy on you too. This is a chilling, terrible idea that should be roundly rejected.”

The report claimed that the private firms that the Biden administration is considering using would “act as middlemen” to obtain the information, which would consist of “broad summaries or analysis of narratives that are emerging on these sites” and would not “target specific individuals.” However, some of these firms use fake identities to access the private social media spaces that the government can’t access, which could cause potential legal headaches for the administration.

“The government outsourcing warrantless domestic spying of American citizens to outside corporations doesn’t make it any less dangerous, unconstitutional or illegal,” political strategist Andrew Surabian wrote. “Do any pols have the courage to stand up to an increasingly lawless & authoritarian national security state?”

  • I may have watched too much Law & Order, but I thought that an outside contractor is restricted by the same rules as the government agency if they are acting at the behest of that government agency.

    • Not if the user that is on their platform and has agreed to the privacy statement of said company or platform. These 3rd party entities will use privacy agreements with the main platforms. The platforms will most likely agree provided a financial compensation is agreed upon.

  • Why do they need to spy on Americans!? The ones that should be snooped on are the illegals entering America!
