Feds Have Google Track Searches

It isn’t enough to sic the FBI on concerned parents who speak up at schoolboard meetings. Big Government likes to be proactive, identifying potential domestic terrorists before they commit their misdeeds. Thanks to secretly issued warrants, a simple Google search to learn the names of local schoolboard members can give away a thought criminal:

[F]ederal investigators have started using new “keyword warrants” and used them to ask Google to provide them information on anyone who searched a victim’s name or their address during a particular year, an accidentally unsealed court document that Forbes found shows.

The word “victim” in this context could mean “anyone the government sides with.”

The threat to our freedom and privacy is so alarming, the ACLU was jarred out of its moonbattery long enough to remember what it is supposed to be about:

“Trawling through Google’s search history database enables police to identify people merely based on what they might have been thinking about, for whatever reason, at some point in the past,” Jennifer Granick, surveillance and cybersecurity counsel at the American Civil Liberties Union, told Forbes.

Fortunately, countermoonbats tend to know better than to use Google, whose algorithms suppress websites for having a conservative orientation.

On tips from MrRightWingDave and Chris Neilson.
