There is a reason so many Americans fight for their constitutional rights. Because if we don’t, they’ll be taken away from us. That has never been more true under a “president” like Joe Biden.
With just a wave of his hand, Biden tried to rob 100 million Americans of their rights under the guise of a vaccine mandate. But that is only the tip of the iceberg of what the federal government tries to do.
Our laws protect us from unlawful search and seizure. As well as privacy from the prying eyes of Big Brother. But over the years, intelligence agencies have grown powerful. Their ability to complied data has been left unchecked by lawmakers and presidents.
Now, two whistleblowers are revealing the CIA has a repository of data on U.S. citizens. From Breitbart:
The CIA has a secret, undisclosed data repository that includes information collected about Americans, two Democrats on the Senate Intelligence Committee said. While neither the agency nor lawmakers would disclose specifics about the data, the senators alleged the CIA had long hidden details about the program from the public and Congress…
There have long been concerns about what information the intelligence community collects domestically, driven in part by previous violations of Americans’ civil liberties. The CIA and National Security Agency have a foreign mission and are generally barred from investigating Americans or U.S. businesses. But the spy agencies’ sprawling collection of foreign communications often snares Americans’ messages and data incidentally.
Sens. Ron Wyden of Oregon and Martin Heinrich of New Mexico revealed that the CIA has some kind of repository of data on American citizens. The report is heavily redacted, so it is unclear what data it is—and of whom. But the report is raising alarm bells all over Washington.
Agencies like the CIA are not supposed to collect data on Americans. But it is commonly known that Americans can get swept up as the CIA gathers foreign communication. By law, that data is supposed to be protected, with names hidden. But apparently, the CIA is keeping tabs on some kind of citizen data. Which could have far-reaching consequences.
How many Americans are involved? What is this data? Even seemingly unimportant tidbits of information can be used to great harm, in the wrong hands. What if the CIA uses this data to discourage voting—or sway elections? What if they use this data to send the IRS after certain political groups?
There’s no telling what this could mean. Which requires Congress to demand answers.
