As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to grow, America is struggling with testing patients, runs on grocery stores and — for some ridiculous reason — a toilet paper shortage. Adding to the fear is the fact that the CDC botched the rollout of the test kits, so we have no accurate measurement of just how bad this crisis is.

With just over 4,000 cases reported in the country as of Monday, governments across the country are taking no chances. We have seen lockdowns from coast to coast as school is cancelled, restaurants and bars told to shutter their doors, as well as gun bans, curfews, and deployment of the National Guard. Things are escalating quickly.

Despite the need to address the growing concerns of Americans, Washington D.C. and the surveillance deep state are moving to spy on them by quietly pushing a totalitarian act of legislation. The bipartisan supported bill, called the EARN IT bill, is sponsored by Senators Lindsay Graham (R-SC) and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT).

This incredibly Draconian bill seeks to end what little privacy we have left online. As the Electronic Frontier Foundation reports, it will strip Section 230 protections away from any website that doesn’t follow a list of “best practices,” meaning those sites can be sued into bankruptcy. The “best practices” list will be created by a government commission, headed by Attorney General Barr, who has made it very clear he would like to ban encryption, and guarantee law enforcement “legal access” to any digital message.

The authors of the bill were surreptitious in crafting its text, carefully avoiding any usage of the word “encryption” in an apparent effort to trick Americans into thinking it’s harmless. And, last week, Blumenthal was quick to point this out — which was likely planned from the beginning.

“This bill says nothing about encryption,” Sen. Blumenthal said at Thursday’s hearing on the bill. “Have you found a word in this bill about encryption?” he asked one witness. But the folks at EFF warn that this is a deceptive ploy.

    Soon there will be RFID chips in toilet paper so when you wipe your ass the g0vernment will know when you shit and how it smells. Then they will tax you for every time you wipe.
