Washington (CNN) — The Biden administration is considering using outside firms to track extremist chatter by Americans online, an effort that would expand the government’s ability to gather intelligence but could draw criticism over surveillance of US citizens.

The Department of Homeland Security is limited in how it can monitor citizens online without justification and is banned from activities like assuming false identities to gain access to private messaging apps used by extremist groups such as the Proud Boys or Oath Keepers.

The article goes on to state the following:

Instead, federal authorities can only browse through unprotected information on social media sites like Twitter and Facebook and other open online platforms. A source familiar with the effort said it is not about decrypting data but rather using outside entities who can legally access these private groups to gather large amounts of information that could help DHS identify key narratives as they emerge.


In their lengthy report, CNN wrote that the DHS has denied the claims. DHS said it “is not partnering with private firms to surveil suspected domestic terrorists online” and “it is blatantly false” to suggest that the department is using outside firms to circumvent its legal limits, CNN noted.

The report cites multiple “sources” who insist DHS is working to expand its ability to collect information from social media sites, but notes that “any effort by the intelligence community to wade into the murky area of domestic spying is fraught with political risks.”

The report also states:

If they can find willing external partners that would help provide access to private groups on these encrypted apps, DHS and its federal partners, including the FBI, would be able to legally identify potential domestic terrorists and access information that could inform investigative efforts, a source familiar with the effort told CNN.

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) tweeted, “If you think #BigTech is scary now, wait until it starts teaming up with Big Government to spy on you.”

  1. Hell, they are/or a related branch is/was already doing it…there is so much obvious corruption in this country that it makes one’s head spin…CIA, FBI, DOJ AND MASS MARXIST MEDIA…THIS IS LIKE A NIGHTMARE DREAM

  2. All started with the Democrats! But some people are so stupid to see what exactly is happening and who is really behind all of the violence in America! The Biden administration is seriously pissing the hell out of us Americans. I hope there prepared for what will happen if they don’t stop there foolish ways??

  3. We all know who their targets are
    When are we going to stop storing and stand up and fight like Americans against this regime that is taking us out

  4. You know they are only going to target conservatives who support President Trump & believe what everyone knows is the truth . Does anyone think Blm/antifa will be targeted? They have coordinated through FB & TWITTER but jack shi** about them. We are quickly becoming a communist country and no one can deny it if they are truthful. They are really wanting a civil war probably to declare martial law and put us under military regime. They are already vetting conservatives in the military. Soon everyone who speaks out against them will disappear or be “ re-educated “ Are people really so blind they don’t see it or do they simply not care?? Why would anyone in their right God given mind want to live in a communist country? Yeah these kids hear all this free stuff and think it’s great. We’re just going to let the government support us and we won’t work then we can have fun & games all day, get rid of police that way everyone will get along. I guess their stupidity could be blamed on youth but I know kids who have common sense so no you can’t really say that.But older people, people in their late 30s & up should know better and should be upset. I know they were taught history and not the crap they want taught now. Where are you people at? Are you really sheep going along blindly? God help us because if he doesn’t we aren’t going to have a world fit for anything.

    • Your correct. The BLM, Antifa, & the other fringe groups that they damn well know are deep into our government.

      Outside consultants? What a laugh. Do they think we Americans are that stupid?
      They want (& probably will) martial law.
      They will go after EVERY conservative.
      But do I think this will bring isseruction? You bet I do.
      Look what they are doing to the military, our schools, you & I.
      This was planned years ago, and now instead of trying to do it slowly, they are coming at us FULL FORCE.
      One other thing, the education system. These past 20-30 years, they have been training these kids( now young adults) to be Socialist/Communist.
      BLM, Antifa, & ALL ( yup, there are so many) have to be torn down.
      The Congress & Senate, CIA, FBI, DOJ, etc., must be dismantled & start over.
      I am, not only sad, but God damn fighting mad that my country , and the American citizens, are being destroyed by these animals.

  5. The cat is out of the bag now. DHS can deny it all they want but now we know. It’s just one more step of too many that have been taken since this disgraceful administration took office. We absolutely must start working from the bottom up right now to get people in all offices who support our constitution and bill of rights. We must reject the use of voting machines in all elections, local, state, and national elections going forward.

  6. Very Dangerous and it’s time for all citizens to stand up against what this corrupt administration is doing, they are destroying everything this country was founded on.
    Do people not realise where this country is heading?
    They had better wake up, people from all over the World see how dangerous this government has become.
    I do not want to live under a regime like we are seeing and my children and grandchildren not have their freedom,and illegals given first class treatment, while citizens are being put last.
    WAKE UP AMERICA BEFORE ITS TOO LATE.

  7. Socialism/Marxism/Communism. No citizens want it. Not even the ones that have it. About ‘as popular with the American public as head lice’.

  8. And we will be suing the living shit out of these people! PERSONALLY! Don’t work for them! Because we are lawsuite ready! Privacy laws! The Dems wanted “strick” privacy laws in California ! Now it’s time to use their laws against them!
