Contact Tracing uses cellphone GPS data to trace individuals and groups to a particular location, and your private data will be controlled by county officials. Counties are also considering using infrared technology to “look” inside private homes and buildings to determine the number of people who are gathered. However, the US Supreme Court previously has ruled that it is NOT lawful for the government to use such data to track individuals without a warrant. The Court also has ruled that a government entity must have a warrant to use infrared technology to look inside a private building. For government officers to use cell data or infrared technology to track people, they must have express permission from each person or a warrant for every individual. Otherwise, tracking will be an unlawful search and seizure. Attorney KrisAnne Hall wrote an open letter for citizens to share with county officials advising them of these rulings. She believes citizens would win civil-rights lawsuits based on these rulings. Dr. Pamela Popper is asking anyone whose cell phone has been used to contact trace them to reach out to her to participate in a lawsuit. -GEG
“…The use of cell phones by government entities to geo track people is not a new nor an unsettled issue.Although it may be legal for a hospital or university to purchase such data from a cell phone provider for research purposes, it is NOT lawful for the government to use the data from data scientists to track individuals without a warrant -even though that data comes from a third party. In Carpenter v. U.S.,the Supreme Court held that a government entity MUST have a warrant to use cell data to geo track someone, even when that data comes from a third party.
Additionally, the Supreme Court held in Kyllo v U.S. that a government entity must have a warrant to use infrared technology to look inside a private building and to do so without a warrant is a violation of our rights to privacy.
For government officers to use cell data or infrared technology to track people, they must have either express permission from each person or a warrant for every single individual or that tracking will be an unlawful search and seizure. If our officials use this technology for contact tracing without warrants, regardless of where the data comes from, it will be tantamount to legal negligence. Given the recency of these Supreme Court cases it is highly likely that the counties would lose a civil rights challenge and the taxpayers will foot the bill.”

Vaccines are far from either safe or effective, so the argument over compelled vaccines has no legal or ethical merit. Kennedy dominates the debate with shocking facts about the lack of vaccine safety. It’s a long debate but well worth taking notes.

Police Chief James Craig says his city kept the peace because they decided at the beginning that “We weren’t giving up ground to the radicals.” He credited the residents of the city, who he said stood with the police. Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan has supported the city’s police department.
Mr. Cain had battled colon cancer, and it is unknown what other illnesses he may have had or what toxic medications he was taking. Mr. Cain attended the rally for President Trump in Tulsa on June 20th and would have been tested for coronavirus there. It is presumed, therefore, that he tested negative that day.

At least 100 police agencies have withdrawn from helping guard the Democratic National Convention in August due to an order to stop using tear gas and pepper spray during demonstrations.

Both local and federal governments are deliberately allowing the rioters to operate. Why would they do that? We think it is because they are following a larger plan to make things so frightening that the American people will plead for martial law to “save” them.

Facebook has two major problems, privacy and propaganda, which may lead to government regulation over the private company. Facebook is the biggest provider of news in the US, with a long track record of censorship, and it has the power to turn election results. Google and Facebook control 90% of the digital advertisement market. In addition, Americans’ privacy has been grossly violated because they have not understood the User Agreement.
The CLOUD Act, which was included in last week’s Omnibus bill, eviscerates what may have been left of citizen privacy in America and it makes personal information readily available to other governments. It empowers the US government and foreign governments to invade the privacy of anyone it wants to stalk. [The big question is why did President Trump sign such a bill when he could have vetoed it? The assertion that Hillary would have been worse is not an answer to that question.]
Apple and Google are teaming up to develop contact tracing apps that track the user’s health records and their contacts. Reports indicate they are planning eventually to build the feature into all updates. Ranking on these apps could be used to allow entry into grocery stores or larger businesses and events.
