Just days after the House Judiciary Committee started debating key big tech bills, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich came on the Sara Carter Show to talk about what he’s doing to fight big tech. Brnovich is in the midst of building a lawsuit against Google.

Meanwhile, SaraACarter.com was also targeted by Google at one point for reporting on topics like hydroxychloroquine, and other topics like antisemitism. “Google pinged us that if we didn’t remove the stories, that we would lose our advertising,” Carter told Brnovich.

Brnovich is concerned with how much data Google is collecting from everyday Americans without their knowledge.

“We’ve read information that for the average person to try to opt out to not have all them tracking old stuff, it would require the equivalent like a college degree and about 75 minutes of time to do all that,” he said. “So they have made it virtually impossible for them not to collect as much information about you.” Google doesn’t just know where you like to shop, either. Because of all their apps and partnerships, they even know your temperature.

As a result, Brnovich claims that he’s already found internal communication at Google, thanks to his upcoming law suit, that proves that even Google employees are concerned.

“It’s very Orwellian,” he said of the discovery.

On the other hand, the search engine giant is constantly trying to cover up their misdeeds. When Brnovich first announced the lawsuit against Google, he said the company began running opinion editorials condemning his push to expose what he says is expansive invasion of privacy by the global tech giants.

Instead, he said, the columnists targeted him and pointed to all the good Google is doing.

“They’re very, very good at PR, manipulation and lobbying,” Brnovich said.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, along with Florida state health officials, are investigating what is believed to be a case of monkeypox. A statement from the Florida Department of Health in Broward County stated the “case is related to international travel, and the person remains isolated.”

Late Friday a New York City resident also tested positive for the virus that causes monkeypox, and is the state’s first confirmed case. On Sunday, President Joe Biden made his first public statements about the outbreaks, saying the recent spread of monkeypox in at least 12 countries are “something that everybody should be concerned about.”

Axios reports a person was confirmed positive with the virus in Massachusetts, New York and “roughly a half dozen other cases” are “being monitored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
