Rand Paul: Time to ban feds from tracking Americans through their cellphone location data
Date: May 6, 2022Author: Nwo Report

When the government is trying to snoop on your behavior, it’s wrong, and there should be laws against it,” the Kentucky senator told Just the News.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), a fierce protector of freedom and privacy, says it is time to ban federal agencies from being able to track Americans’ behavior by buying their cell phone location data from commercial vendors.
“When the government is trying to snoop on your behavior, it’s wrong, and there should be laws against it,” Paul told the “Just the News, Not Noise” television show in an exclusive interview aired Wednesday night.
Paul’s comments came after newly released government documents revealed that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) tracked Americans’ compliance with pandemic lockdowns by buying and monitoring their cellphone geospatial data from commercial vendors.
Such data is collected on each American from apps they use on their smart phones and sold by third-party brokers unless a user explicitly opts out of such collection for each app. Increasingly, law enforcement and other government agencies have been acquiring the data for official work, though the CDC was the first publicly disclosed use to track private Americans’ health behavior.
The data also was bought and used by the election integrity group True the Vote to identify people suspected of illegally collecting ballots in the 2020 Georgia election, a revelation that has prompted a formal investigation by the Georgia Secretary of State’s office.

The Kentucky senator dismissed defenses that some government agencies have made that their practice is OK because the data is commercially available and merely tracks the locations of Americans without intercepting the contents of communications. 
“This goes back to Edward Snowden, when he was the whistleblower that revealed that the government was collecting not just a little bit of our data, but almost all of our data,” Paul said. “Now, they kind of justify it, and they say, ‘Oh, it’s not your conversation. We’re not really spying on your conversations. It’s your metadata.’
“But interestingly, when people look at it, researchers have determined they can tell more about you from your metadata than your conversations. So if they know how long you talk to people, and who you talk to … so for example, and metadata includes your doctors, and I can look at all of your phone calls and how long you talk to them, I can tell what a lot of your medical diseases are, I can tell maybe if you have something that you don’t want the public to know, a certain doctor that you see.
“By looking at your VISA bill, I can see … what your medications are. I can see what you read. So I don’t actually have to … hear your conversation. There were researchers that looked at the metadata … that said that you could tell over 80% of the time what religion people were, so you can invade their religious sphere their medical sphere, their health sphere, their reading habits.”
Paul said he supports legislation that would ban the purchase of such data to track Americans or their behavior, absent a court-approved warrant.
“It’s a terrible thing to do, and government should not be allowed to do this,” he said. “Now, some sort of set people say, ‘Well, it’s just open market. It’s free-market things.’ When the government does it, and when the government is trying to snoop on your behavior, it’s wrong and there should be laws against it.”

Senator Johnson Demands CDC Explain Why It Tracked Movements Of Americans During Pandemic

By Mary Margaret Olohan
Daily Wire
WASHINGTON — Republican Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson is calling on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to address why it tracked Americans throughout the coronavirus pandemic — and what other departments may have tracked the movements of United States citizens as well.
“It remains unclear why the CDC tracked millions of Americans during the pandemic and whether it continues to do so,” Johnson told the CDC in a Thursday letter first obtained by The Daily Wire. “In response to COVID-19, the CDC should have been prioritizing the development of treatments, effective testing, and vaccine safety rather than tracking Americans’ daily lives.” 
Johnson called on the CDC to explain if its use of location data was “the only mechanism it employed to monitor Americans during the pandemic,” which official or officials at the CDC approved the “use and subsequent purchase of location data,” what companies supplied the CDC with this data, and whether the CDC shared this location data with any other federal, state, or local agencies.
“If so, provide what entities received the data and explain why,” Johnson told the CDC.
The senator’s letter builds off internal documents from the CDC obtained by Vice showing that the department used the data of millions of Americans to track their compliance with government coronavirus restrictions.
This included tracking people who visited grade schools and high schools, specifically the Navajo Nation, places of worship, and more, the publication reported.
“A recent report revealed that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) spent at least $420,000 to purchase location data from ‘at least 20 million active cellphone users per day’ in an effort to assist the agency in monitoring Americans during the pandemic,” Johnson wrote in his letter to the CDC. 
“According to that report, the CDC obtained location data from at least one company, SafeGraph, to examine activities in schools, places of worship, parks, grocery stores, and public transit stations, among others,” he continued. “CDC reportedly wrote in a document, ‘the mobility data obtained in this contract will be available for CDC agency-wide use and will support numerous CDC priorities.’” 
Location data is sourced from an individual’s phone and shows where the device’s location is, revealing where the person goes during their day, as well as where they live and where they work. The CDC bought aggregated data, Vice reported, which means that the data was intended to follow trends of groups of people.
But researchers have warned that this type of data can also be used to track individuals, according to Vice.
