Power-hungry politicians and bureaucrats have been making the most of the ongoing pandemic.
They’re always looking for ways to exploit it to seize more power over Americans.
Now Ben Carson is sounding the alarm over a new COVID vaccine spying bill.
If Congress has its way, Santa Claus won’t be the only one who’s making a list and checking it twice this year.
H.R. 550 is a secret COVID spying bill that will enable Dr. Fauci and Biden’s bureaucrats at the Department of Health and Human Services to find out who’s been vaccinated or not.
Thankfully Dr. Ben Carson, a former member of the Trump administration and 2016 presidential hopeful, is speaking out about the privacy violations hidden in the bill.
In an interview with Fox News host Maria Bartiromo, Dr. Carson warned, “It will secondarily be used for other things as well. We have got to be smart enough to recognize these signs when we see them and stop them, to nip them in the bud before it becomes too late.”
The Federalist reports:
“If passed, the bill would have federal health agencies including the Department of Health and Human Services and Centers for Disease Control “award grants” to state and local health departments to ‘improv[e] the secure bidirectional exchange of immunization record data among Federal, State, local, tribal, and territorial governmental entities and non-governmental entities.’ The bill would also pay local governments to further ‘real-time immunization record data exchange and reporting, to support rapid identification of immunization coverage gaps.”
Despite Ben Carson’s best efforts, 80 “Republicans” joined Nancy Pelosi and every single Democrat to pass the bill in the House of Representatives.
What’s even more egregious is that the bill received no hearing in the House before the vote and is now being considered in the Senate.
Rep. Dan Crenshaw defended his support of the bill by saying in an Instagram post that he and his “Republican” colleagues fought for a provision in the bill that would force state and local governments to make the data anonymous to prevent the federal government from using this database to track individuals.
However, data privacy experts have raised doubts about the ability to truly keep a person’s digital data truly private.
And it wouldn’t be the first time that left-wing bureaucrats have misused the government to go after political opponents.
Remember when Obama Administration officials “unmasked” members of Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign?
Or when Obama’s IRS Director John Koskinen weaponized the IRS to target conservatives?
Right News Wire does and we’re unmoved by Crenshaw’s assurances and will continue to remain skeptical of government databases.
