Biden Plans Expansion of Feds’ Army of Snitches in ‘Dollars for Collars’ Program

By James Bovard, The American Conservative

The Biden administration may soon recruit an army of private snoops to conduct surveillance that would be illegal if done by federal agents. As part of its war on extremism, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) may exploit a “legal work-around” to spy on and potentially entrap Americans who are “perpetuating the ‘narratives’ of concern,” CNN reported last week. But federal informant programs routinely degenerate into “dollars for collars” schemes that reward scoundrels for fabricating crimes that destroy the lives of innocent Americans. The DHS plan would “allow the department to circumvent [constitutional and legal] limits” on surveillance of private citizens and groups. Federal agencies are prohibited from targeting individuals solely for First Amendment-protected speech and activities. But federal hirelings would be under no such restraint. Private informants could create false identities that would be problematic if done by federal agents.

  1. We have no hope of escape,,, remember Soros speech in 2018? He said “I live only to see the destruction of the United States “ – It appears Kumola is doing a grand job with this “false” government he arranged,, along w/ Hilary, China, ‘n the rest of the Democrats ‘n Rhino’s ——! Where ‘r all the True Americans ? ‘n what used to be OUR ‘proud’ Military?

  2. Why do we have a ‘man’ in the office of the President who has been accused of committing crimes against said office? Also, how can a ‘man’ like Soros run free- like Hilary- after being accused of – and admitting to -committing crimes against the United States ‘n it’s people,,, by their “Club”- the New World Order- This “No Borders” group will destroy all we honor of the countriy’s history- good ‘n bad —they “honor” people who made places like Chicago stand for the future of our country? Is this where we say “What difference does it make? “. ?
