FBI Goes Into Overdrive – Seeks Spy Tech to Monitor Social Media Feeds

FBI Director Wray

The FBI is going into overdrive as Spygate unravels.

Thursday it was reported that Yahoo News obtained a new FBI document dated May 30, 2019 that warns ‘conspiracy theorists’ are the new domestic terrorism threats.

The document specifically called out ‘QAnon’ which is a belief that “Q” is a government official posting information on an online forum about Trump’s efforts to dismantle the Deep State.

“The FBI assesses these conspiracy theories very likely will emerge, spread, and evolve in the modern information marketplace, occasionally driving both groups and individual extremists to carry out criminal or violent acts,” the document states.

The document also claims the FBI believes conspiracy theory-driven extremists are likely to increase during the 2020 presidential election cycle.

Even worse, the FBI used far left websites such as Snopes and Wikipedia as sources for their junk report.

And now the FBI is seeking technology to spy on social media users.

The FBI is seeking to acquire access to a “social media early alerting tool” to proactively monitor terrorist groups and other domestic threats who use the social media platforms to network, according to a request for a proposal released this week by the FBI — The original proposal was dated July 8, however it was amended this week.

“With increased use of social media platforms by subjects of current FBI investigations and individuals that pose a threat to the United States, it is critical to obtain a service which will allow the FBI to identify relevant information from Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and other Social media platforms in a timely fashion,” the FBI said in its proposal. “Consequently, the FBI needs near real-time access to a full range of social media exchanges in order to obtain the most current information available in furtherance of its law enforcement and intelligence missions.”

“This PSPO’s public records contract is in response to an increasing number of threats to U.S. national interests that are identifiable, with ever-greater frequency, through social media platforms. It is an acknowledged fact that virtually every incident and subject of FBI investigative interest has a presence online. Consequently, law enforcement gaining lawful access (i.e., access that is authorized, appropriate, and consistent with applicable law and policy) to this data will result in early detection and/or containment of the magnitude of any harm caused by these threats,” the FBI wrote in its statement of objectives.

The FBI states it wants a tool that can be accessed by all headquarters and field offices through both desktops and mobile devices.

The FBI wants to be able to acquire IP addresses, user IDs, emails, phone numbers and all social media accounts for any persons-of-interest based on posts and messages in order to assess the full scope of the potential threat.

The reality is that Islamic terrorism, left-wing terrorism (Antifa), totalitarian Socialist/Communist lawmakers, illegal immigration and the corrupt criminal Deep State are the biggest threat to our Republic.

But the FBI is monitoring ‘conspiracy theories’ being spread on social media about the Deep State.

No doubt this social media spy tool will be used to target conservatives and patriots who are concerned about the abuses by the FBI and other intel agencies.
