AG Mark Brnovich says Google is ‘very Orwellian’ about its data collection

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, 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.

Adviser to Fauci bragged about helping him evade FOIA, ‘he is too smart’ to get caught

The House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic published evidence ahead of a hearing that explains the senior scientific adviser to then-National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Anthony Fauci actually bragged about helping Fauci evade the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

The adviser, David Morens, admitted in his own communications to intentionally evading FOIA by using a Fauci’s private Gmail address or just handing him documents in person, according to the newly disclosed emails.

The 35-page report on Morens includes previously unreleased emails including:

An April 21, 2021 email shows Morens contacted EcoHealth Alliance President Peter Daszak, whom Morens has described as his “best friend” and a U.S. taxpayer conduit for the Wuhan Institute of Virology, as well as Boston University and New England Biolabs researchers.

The subject line references “CoV research in China, GoF, etc.,” referring to EcoHealth-facilitated coronavirus research at WIV that could make a virus more transmissible or dangerous. The National Institutes of Health recently admitted it funded gain-of-function research under that definition but not a stricter regulatory definition.

“PS, i forgot to say there is no worry about FOIAs,” Morens wrote. “I can either send stuff to Tony on his private gmail, or hand it to him at work or at his house. He is too smart to let colleagues send him stuff that could cause trouble.”

A May 13, 2021 email to the same recipients referred to “our ‘secret’ back channel” by which Morens connected Fauci to a journalist named “Arthur,” apparently to discuss the feds’ preferred narrative that SARS-CoV-2 emerged naturally rather than via lab leak. The email cited an article on the message board Virological.

Gerald Keusch, associate director of the National Emerging Infectious Diseases Laboratory Institute at BU, emailed Daszak Oct. 25, 2021 to relay a phone conversation with “David,” who is “concerned about the privacy of text” and email sent and received on his “government phone” because they “could be FOIA’able.”

“Tony has told him not to be in touch with you and EHA for the time being,” Keusch wrote. Morens relayed that Daszak should get his story straight on EcoHealth’s claim that NIH locked it out of the system when it tried to file its year-five progress report that disclosed an arguable gain-of-function experiment.

Earlier in the day, Morens told Daszak “i will be meeting with Tony about this later on.” The subject line of the thread was “Draft response to Michael Lauer,” deputy director for extramural research at NIH.

Morens also told Daszak that Fauci and then-NIH Director Francis Collins are “trying to protect you, which also protects their own reputations,” apparently meaning against allegations that U.S. tax dollars passed through EcoHealth funded research that may have led to SARS-CoV-2’s emergence.

The subcommittee said it found emails that revealed “likely illegal” practices, including an April 2020 email in which Morens shared a “new NIAID implementation plan” with Daszak and an August 2020 email in which Daszak mentioned a “kick-back” to Morens after NIH awarded $7.5 million to EcoHealth.
