Left-wing politicians know that information is power.
They have figured out that if they collect data on all Americans, they can use it to crack down on them.
That’s why one Left-wing city has decided to bring Chinese-style surveillance to America.
Washington, D.C., is the ultimate haven for big government. They are the home to the worst authoritarian politicians and Deep State officials, who want nothing more than to control the American public.
This was clearly shown last year when they decided to expand the Capitol Police to become a national surveillance agency like the FBI.
Now they are stepping up their surveillance against their own citizens even further, and it is getting ugly.
The Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) has created a special surveillance unit called the Joint Operations Command Center (JOCC) which watches the citizens of D.C., day and night.
This is overseen by Democrat Mayor Muriel Bowser, one of the most radical Left-wing mayors in America.
According to a report from The Intercept, “The MPD designed the JOCC as a surveillance control center. It contains more than 20 display monitors linked to around 50 computer stations, all connected to the MPD’s broad arsenal of intelligence data programs and surveillance sources.”
This surveillance apparatus has been getting worse and worse for years, and only now is it finally being brought to light in the public eye.
“For years, this sprawling web of surveillance has been shrouded in secrecy. Now, more than two decades into the frenzy of police monitoring of ordinary citizens, recently uncovered documents are revealing its scope and practices.”
It’s amazing to think that a government could have such an extensive program to target its own citizens without anyone on the outside even knowing about, but that’s exactly what happened.
Mayor Bowser and her Democrat cohorts went to extreme lengths to keep this program hidden from public view, because they knew there would be outrage if it was ever discovered.
And the fact that they used the police department to act as a Deep State surveillance agency, instead of having them do basic police work to protect the city, is unforgivable.
There are many other agencies that participate in this as well.
The article continues, “Until 2021, the Council of Governments operated a secret face-recognition tech system, data from which it shared with 14 local and federal agencies.”
This information-sharing is incredibly dangerous because it means that federal agencies just keep growing and growing their databases of American citizens.
When local police departments share their surveillance information with federal Deep State agencies, they just empower those agencies to target even more American citizens like they are doing now.
This is exactly how Joe Biden is carrying out his Domestic War on Terror, targeted at conservatives.
He used the FBI to target parents who were protesting Critical Race Theory, but the FBI partnered with police departments to find out exactly which parents to target.
The more this happens, the more important it becomes to take action to stop mass surveillance, once and for all.
