Joe Biden has made a huge change to the way the government tracks Americans online.
It’s shocking how the government is controlling what Americans see.
A whistleblower sounded off the alarm on how Joe Biden is spying on Americans.
Officials from the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), which was formed in 2018 under the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) say that President Joe Biden is increasingly using the agency to track what Americans say on social media.
Chad Wolf, former acting secretary of the DHS, told the Caller that the report “is very concerning” and that “the federal government has no business in monitoring or regulating the protected free speech of Americans.”
“It’s important to remember, it was Congress that established CISA with overwhelming bipartisan support. CISA’s mission is an important one but it now appears that they have expanded beyond their original mandate from countering foreign threats to looking at mis- and disinformation here in the U.S. That is a slippery slope and an overreach in my opinion,” Wolf said.
Former acting deputy chief of staff for the DHS under Trump, Lora Ries said that creation of CISA in 2018 was “valid,” but that there should have been more safeguards to keep them from abusing their power according to the Daily Caller.
“CISA was created to secure the .gov domain and to communicate with the private sector regarding critical infrastructure. There are valid needs for those functions. The problems arose, however, when CISA staff left their lanes of authority,” Ries said. “What should not have been allowed is CISA entering into the role of judging the content of information, let alone directing others to remove such information based on disfavored content.”
Ries said that CISA was looking at foreign, not domestic threats, continued but that their monitoring elections at all, however, “was a slippery slope easily abused. It is similar to ‘fact-checking,’” she said.
“CISA is supposed to be a collaborative organization, not one to declare whether an election was secure. As such, CISA should point people to their state election officials regarding election information,” Ries added.
This report comes after other concerning internal documents exposed that the FBI and DHS were working closely with social media companies like Facebook and Twitter to censor freedom of speech of Americans.
DHS’s capstone report said the department plans to target “inaccurate information” on a wide range of topics, including “the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic and the efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines, racial justice, U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, and the nature of U.S. support to Ukraine.”
“The challenge is particularly acute in marginalized communities,” the report states, “which are often the targets of false or misleading information, such as false information on voting procedures targeting people of color.”
