CNN: Biden Team May Partner With Private Firms To Surveil Suspected “Domestic Terrorists” Online

How many times were we told that Donald Trump was a “fascist”?

What did Donald Trump ever do compared to these people? The corporate media spent years spreading misinformation based on dubious intelligence about Trump in the Russia hoax. The Democratic Congress impeached him twice. Black Lives Matter and Antifa rioted for years and torched entire cities and got away with serial violence while openly being supported by Corporate America. Big Tech deplatformed Trump and millions of his supporters from the internet. “Journalists” hunt people down who express politically incorrect opinions online like old school commissars, dox them and get them fired from their jobs. Democrats built a razor wire fence around the U.S. Capitol and sent in the military to occupy Washington, DC. They weaponized the intelligence agencies against Trump and his supporters.

Has it occurred to anyone how far across the line the Left has traveled over the past few years? They’ve resorted to mob violence, censorship, illegal surveillance, doxxing, economic blackmail and intimidation, impeachment, demonizing White people as a racial group, labeling virtually the entire Populist Right as “domestic extremism” and a national security threat, imposing a political litmus test on the U.S. military and law enforcement agencies, etc. Merrick Garland’s Department of Social Justice was even poised to arrest Derek Chauvin on the spot in court on federal charges if a jury had found that he was innocent. The corporate media now holds communist show trials and convicts police officers of systematic racism in the court of public opinion for the purpose of fomenting racial division for political gain.

CNN:

“Washington (CNN) – The Biden administration is considering using outside firms to track extremist chatter by Americans online, an effort that would expand the government’s ability to gather intelligence but could draw criticism over surveillance of US citizens.

The Department of Homeland Security is limited in how it can monitor citizens online without justification and is banned from activities like assuming false identities to gain access to private messaging apps used by extremist groups such as the Proud Boys or Oath Keepers.

Instead, federal authorities can only browse through unprotected information on social media sites like Twitter and Facebook and other open online platforms.

The plan being discussed inside DHS, according to multiple sources, would, in effect, allow the department to circumvent those limits. 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.

By partnering with research firms who have more visibility in this space, the DHS could produce information that would likely be beneficial to both it and the FBI, which can’t monitor US citizens in this way without first getting a warrant or having the pretext of an ongoing investigation. The CIA and NSA are also limited on collecting intelligence domestically. …

If they can find willing external partners that would help provide access to private groups on these encrypted apps, DHS and its federal partners, including the FBI, would be able to legally identify potential domestic terrorists and access information that could inform investigative efforts, a source familiar with the effort told CNN. …”

The NSA and FBI aren’t trampling on your constitutional rights and illegally surveilling you enough. The government needs to work with private firms to spy even harder on dissidents who haven’t committed any crimes. Their partners can decide on their own who is a “domestic extremist.”

In light of how we recently barely survived “fascism,” I would just like to know what we have done that compares to any of this. Did we burn down Minneapolis? Did we lay siege to a federal courthouse for months? Did we create our own sovereign states in Seattle and Portland? Did we cause over a billion dollars worth of property damage? Did we ban Joe Biden and all of his supporters from the internet? Are we hunting down progressives and getting them fired from their jobs for their political views? Have we impeached Joe Biden? Have we used the FBI as a weapon against our political enemies? Are we using the economic power of Corporate America as a weapon to force our views on Blue States?

  1. “It’s just a goddammed piece of paper.” – GW Bush on the US Constitution. The US govt could care less about Muh Constitution – act accordingly.

    • People are going to start asking,
      “What do I owe a traitor government?”.

      Be among the first.

      • @ arrian, thee question should be, ” what does this traitor goverment owe us”?, everything sir, every damm thing, they can start with an apology and their resignations, then our people, will have too decide, shall we bring charges against these satanic traitors, i am hopeful, knowing we have men of honor, intelligence and morals to lead our people, that we will do what is right.

  2. “…the use of (((outside firms))) to track extremist chatter…” – apparently Israeli Intel and the NSA can’t handle the job of spying on every piece of electronic info in the world so they have to farm some of their workload out.

  3. CNN isn’t the source of the problem. They are literally the mouthpiece of the government.

  4. It’s going to take a lot of private firms, because I just have this hunch that they would like to constantly survey millions and millions of White Males.

    This country is, slowly but surely, turning into a fascimile of Communist China.

  5. The enemy better hope I never obtain any power over them, because I would be another Reinhard Heydrich. And that’s no exaggeration.

    • @ Spahnranch 1970, If and when good sir, you come into power, i am asking for a.personal waiver, on “goose stepping”, i can two-step like a champ, but my goose stepping, ah, could use some work to say the least, but i do a very good, prussian heal click, just sayin ya know….

  6. The exploits have already been installed in Windows 10 and Intel chips. All that is needed is a private, unaccountable company to access them.

  7. We’re in a war but only one side is actively fighting, and it’s not us. Imagine what’s to come if the Left ever succeeds in their 2nd Amendment goals. The GOP has demonstrated over and over they will sell our future for 30 pieces of silver.
    This is why once in a blue moon, some hopeless, disenfranchised YT goes full Dylan Roof, and since we’re ALL closeted racists anyway, we all pay the price.
    The best one can do is prepare for the coming storm. In a Nation of Golliaths, be a David.

  8. This is where much of the ‘infrastructure ” money is going to go.
    And more social destruction.

  9. Independent media is taking off.
    They have to find some way to shut it down, via devious methods.
    “Domestic Terrorists” will morph into “terrorist communications”, then “terrorist ideas”,
    opinions as crime.

    They want to kill Free Speech and Free Press.

    The “Patriot Act”, was in reality, the “Tyranny Act”.

  10. This is just like when mercenaries are hired to fight on the battlefield and aren’t beholden to geneva conventions. The marxists at the helm of our government are farming out work that they can’t legally do because of the pesky Constitution. The good thing is that corporations that are performing functions of the govt arent nearly as protected. Well, that is unless google, amazon, twitter, and facekike start hiring and forming up their own armies replete with automatic weapons and explosive devices. Which actually wouldn’t surprise me if they do that within the very near future.

  11. The Supreme Court ought to stop the commie scum from circumventing the legal restrictions on spying on Americans – but of course they’ve already said that the (((feds))) can infiltrate, incite & entrap “domestic terrorists”, so…

  12. Where the hell has Biden been? Big tech has been tracking and silencing folks for years. Even a President of the United States.

  13. “…federal authorities can only browse through unprotected information on social media sites like Twitter and Facebook and other open online platforms.”

    The right-wing has been banned from social media so the feds can’t monitor them online anymore. Since the First Amendment is now a buried corpse they are having difficulty in monitoring the banned right-wing online. So rather than give back free speech they’re going to kill the Forth Amendment next.
