Anthony Fauci revels in the powers he got during the pandemic.
And new documents show he’s crossed major lines few expected him to get and keep.
And Anthony Fauci’s Saudi problem has him sweating bullets after the lid was blown off this totalitarian scheme.
The pandemic turned into one of the biggest political power grabs in human history.
Using “public health” as an excuse, politicians and bureaucrats set about trampling over basic freedoms.
Big government will never let a crisis go to waste.
During the pandemic public health officials launched an unprecedented level of surveillance against Americans.
Contact tracing or trying to snoop on people was used in many states to track the spread of the virus.
Many states implemented voluntary contact tracing through cell phones with Apple integrating a tracking feature into the operating system for its iPhone.
Cell phones offer a wealth of information about a person’s location and activities.
Now, a new report from VICE exposes the massive surveillance operation conducted on Americans for “public health.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) bought the location data from the cell phones of tens of millions of Americans.
Location data from a cell phone can expose where a person lives, works and travels to in any given day.
VICE reports that the data was used “to perform analysis of compliance with curfews, track patterns of people visiting K-12 schools, and specifically monitor the effectiveness of policy in the Navajo Nation, according to CDC documents.”
The CDC paid $420,000 for access to this data for a year from SafeGraph.
SafeGraph counts the former head of Saudi Arabia’s intelligence agency as an investor.
Cell phone apps give off location data that is collected and sold to companies like SafeGraph who bundle it usually to advertisers.
The user’s identity is supposed to remain anonymous and give a client like the CDC the ability to track trends across the population.
There’s concern that individuals may not remain anonymous despite the claims.
Cell phone data from companies like SafeGraph can be de-anonymized.
Cybersecurity researcher Zach Edwards analyzed the CDC documents for VICE.
“The CDC seems to have purposefully created an open-ended list of use cases, which included monitoring curfews, neighbor-to-neighbor visits, visits to churches, schools and pharmacies, and also a variety of analysis with this data specifically focused on ‘violence,’” Edwards explained.
During the pandemic public health officials gave bogus warnings of the danger posed by people protesting totalitarian restrictions.
The CDC documents could indicate that people resisting the Fauician hysteria could have been caught up in this scheme.
This tracking wasn’t limited to the pandemic.
“CDC also plans to use mobility data and services acquired through this acquisition to support non-COVID-19 programmatic areas and public health priorities across the agency,” documents stated.
This sneaky scheme is a massive violation of Americans’ privacy and the information is ripe for abuse in the hands of government bureaucrats.
This terrifying new revelation shows the government will never let a crisis go to waste.
