What CDC Is Asking Google, Twitter, And Facebook To Do With Social Distancing Is Stepping Over The Line; Here’s What’s Happening

(Tea Party 247) – There’s a lot to be concerned about with the coronavirus outbreak and it goes far beyond just our physical health, which of course, is critically important. In fact, the other two big concernes we ought to have besides our health and that of our families is the economic impact of the virus along with how the government measures being taken will also affect our liberties and freedoms.

Well, on that last front, the steps taken by the Center for Disease Control recently involving social media and other tech giants should have Americans across the country very worried about the state of liberty during this crisis.

Apparently, the CDC is asking for Twitter, Google, Facebook and others to help them find out if Americans are actually practicing proper social distancing. In other words, they want these institutions to spy on you and see if you are doing what you are told.

Here’s more from Gateway Pundit:

NBC News reported:

The White House and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are asking Facebook, Google and other tech giants to give them greater access to Americans’ smartphone location data in order to help them combat the spread of the coronavirus, according to four people at companies involved in the discussions who are not authorized to speak about them publicly.

Federal health officials say they could use anonymous, aggregated user data collected by the tech companies to map the spread of the virus — a practice known as “syndromic surveillance” — and prevent further infections. They could also use the data to see whether people were practicing “social distancing.

One of the problems with giving the government more power and authority over your life in times of crisis is that they rarely ever give back what they take away. They keep it for themselves and use it against you long after the crisis has come to a close. Is that what we are headed for here?

Well, it’s very possible.

The government is always looking for ways to expand its authority and there’s no better way to get people on board with such a move than by taking full advantage of a crisis situation. Kind of like how liberal Democrats in the House were trying to sneak in a lot of pork in the coronavirus relief bills. They were totally using this outbreak to help further their political agendas in a rather disgusting manner.

On top of all that, we need to be watchful for martial law, because once that kicks in, the world will change radically. Life as we know it will be over, at least for a time. Maybe for good. Who knows?

There’s a lot that can be justified during a crisis. People are willing to trade liberty for safety when they are pressed hard enough. That’s what made the founding generation of this nation so unique. They didn’t give in to that temptation, but stayed the course, winning our liberty no matter the cost to their personal healthy, safety, and wealth.

Is this generation the kind that would fight to the death for liberty? Something tells me not.

  1. I WILL NOT GO QUITELY YO MY DEATH I WILL YELL AND SCREAM UNTIL THE BITTER END I WILL NOT PRECEPTATION IN THIS FARCE THIS IS JUST THE FLU LIKE ANYOTHER SO MANY GET IT AND DIE AND SO MANY GET IT AND LIVE IT WILL PASS SO PLEASE DON’T LET FEAR RULE YOIR LIFE STAND UP AND BE COUNTED I AM I GO ABOUT MY LIFE LIKE NORMAL AND I WILL CONTINUE TO FO SO ITS YOUR CHOICE TO HIDE OR STAND UP

  2. The social media is at it again trying to convince the populous that the Government is again trying to gain complete control of our freedoms and lives and the wealth of this country. I think the one thing that can save us from that happening is our right to vote and eliminate the mind set of the politicians who are corrupt and self servant. When ever there’s a crises affecting this country the Government starts to generate all kind of new rules and regulations to resolve the problems meaning less freedom and options we have to agree or disagree with their reasoning for change. Which means the Government can do what ever it wishes with out the consent of the people. The one exception is when it’s time to vote we chose the people we thing will do our biding when the House and Congress conviene. History has proven that most Politicians lie when it comes to running for office. They try to make you believe their the only one that can make a difference in this country. Their wrong! It takes the PEOPLE that makes a country great and a great leader who is listening to the people not a Politician. PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES, BE CAREFUL OF WHAT YOU WISH FOR AND WHO YOU VOTE FOR. YOUR LIFE AND LIBERTIES ARE AT STAKE.
    GOD BLESS THE USA AND THE PEOPLE THAT MAKER HE GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Well stated. Would just like to add that we all need to remember that “We the people” are in charge of the government. We give them our demands and it’s job to make them a reality. Somewhere in our history the government got the people to believe they needed the government to run everything and the people needed to be instructed how to think and live. Remember the “Constitution” starts off, “We the people” that would be everyone who is an “American” “Citizen” WAKE UP AND TAKE THE POWER BACK!!!

  3. The world won’t end but unlike the Flu this is a new virus the world has never been exposed too. Also it is nine times more contagious with other countries having almost 8% mortality rate. So like you said use your head don’t panic but like anything dangerous be over protected not under. It’s better safe than sorry. Everyone has control over how long and how bad this gets before it gets better. Who knows if not your life, maybe someone you do care about may depend on what you do now. Respect and follow those that one, we as a whole elected, (even if not all of us did) and two, more importantly, those that might have the education , experience , and knowledge we do not. Protect yourself and your community. This too shall pass as all other pandemics have.

  4. Richard,
    NO!
    The problem with one word is, no to what?
    I’m sure you know what you where answering but a few more might share your thoughts better.

  5. The big tech giants spy on you every day. They know where you are , they know what you say, they know everything you are doing . They can do all of this with your phone.

    • True the tech company knows all this info because we gave it to them and they use cookies to follow us on the web. I think everyone knows this.
      The point of this article is that the government wants the info without your permission or court order as a whole from all sources we gave it to. So yes Google knows who you are and where because we use the app. For example, but the point is should the tech companies have to give it to the government.

  6. This is how America dies without so much as a wimper. Will I be the only 1 to defy this “law”.How about a protest of thousands of people in close contact outside gracy mansion ? And business owners remaining open for business? Or is it too comfortable in this warm bath?

  7. I would be ok with generalizing info like city and population, but not exact location or information like names email or phone numbers. No private info beyond maybe male or female and general area so a number could be reached to help with spread vs infection control measures are working or not. Contain and control spread is only way to stop an infection.

    • you really think will help they can use all of our devices even if they re turned off the only way to prevent it is remove the batteries and power it down but Americans wont do that they love their smart phones too much for that

  8. I hope citizens are smart enough to not be used as spy’s on the other hand don’t hesitate to tell people to get with the program got safety of all!!

  9. We must protect ourselves from this situation in any way possible for our survival. Isolate yourself from the people who might be a threat to your own life.

  10. I am. I’m socially distancing myself from idgets like the CDC. There is a virus out there, news flash and new flu virus hits us every year and kills more people than this virus, it is nasty. It can kill those who are already sick in some way, so does the flu only more so, acting like total morons, creating panic and taking over ever aspect of our lives like some states are doing is just beyond insane. The flu in just this nation in three months has killed more people than the corona virus has worldwide. Calm down. Use your brains. If you feel sick stay home and away from others, consult your doctor and follow their advice but for GOD’S SAKE STOP ACTING LIKE CHICKEN LITTLE. The world is not ending, the sky is not falling and the MSM and democrats still suck.

    • The media and Democrats which are one and the same,won’t let that happen. They are doing everything in their power to down the President and the Republican party so they can have control. I will say that the real patriots of American are fighting a uphill battle that is getting steeper by the day and our choices of representatives isn’t much better. I’m a firm believer that history will repeat itself,except this time it’s the U.S and not Germany. It’s like watching the same movie but with different actors. By coming together as a team ( like the leftist and Democrats) will be the only chance we have. That’s just my opinion and you know what they say about opinions. One last thing.. WILL SOMEONE PLEASE TAKE TRUMPS PHONE AWAY!!!
