Report: France Will Use Existing Surveillance Grid To Enforce Social Distancing, Mask Wearing

The surveillance systems now being put to use have already been in place for a long time.

France will use its existing network of surveillance cameras to monitor how many people are wearing masks and track how citizens are complying with social distancing after its coronavirus lockdown is eased next week, according to reports.

The BBC notes that “The resort city of Cannes on the Côte d’Azur has trialled the monitoring software, installed at outdoor markets and on buses.”

Datakalab, the French firm behind the software says its algorithms “can be incorporated into existing surveillance systems in other public spaces, such as hospitals, stations, airports and shopping centres.”

The company claims that the software being installed to work with existing cameras does not violate EU data privacy laws because “No image is stored or transmitted.”

Cannes Mayor David Lisnard said, “This technology doesn’t identify people but just gives us mathematical analysis to meet people’s needs.”

So, essentially, it’s ok to track you everywhere you go to ensure you comply, so long as they don’t keep your picture on a hard drive.

France already announced that face masks will be compulsory on public transport and in schools from next week. The country’s lockdown has been more severe than most, with anyone traveling outside their home needing papers approved by the authorities. Anyone found outside without the relevant documents is subject to a fine of €135 upwards.

The case in France highlights how the framework of surveillance that has already been in place and rapidly expanding for two decades is now being used to enforce the removal of freedoms.

We also recently highlighted how tech companies all over the world are developing more sophisticated tools that will allow law enforcement to more effectively police social distancing rules.

We are so used to surveillance now that for many it doesn’t seem that much more of a change to simply give over total compliance and acceptance of a panopticon world.

Coronavirus was just the crisis need to institute permanent societal lockdown using already existing tools, as well as new technologies that can be slotted into those systems already in place.

Biden: “Get Vaccinated or Wear a Mask Until You Do”

Vaccine refusniks could be forced to cover up indefinitely.

Joe Biden has suggested that Americans who don’t take the COVID-19 could be forced to wear masks indefinitely.

“The rule is now simple: get vaccinated or wear a mask until you do,” tweeted Biden. “The choice is yours.”

The direct missive followed an announcement by the CDC that Americans who had taken the vaccine could remove their masks indoors.

However, the updated advisory came with a laundry list of exemptions. Masks will still be mandatory on all forms of public transport, in airports as well as for doctor and hospital visits, nursing homes, jails and homeless shelters.

It is not known how those who have been vaccinated will prove they’ve taken the shot, nor how enforcement of mask wearing for those who haven’t will be conducted.

In lecturing Americans who don’t take the jab that they’ll be forced to mask up for potentially months or even years longer, the Biden administration is creating a second class of citizens, presumably as a punishment for “anti-vaxxers.”

Earlier today, he called on Americans to treat those who choose to wear masks “with kindness and respect,” despite there being significantly more incidents of ‘Karens’ screaming at and harassing people for not wearing a mask.

The lifting of mask mandates for those who’ve taken the shot comes after weeks of complaints that there was no incentive for taking the vaccine given that it didn’t change anything for those who had it.

Video: Rand Paul Continues Fauci Feud; “He Could Be Culpable For The Entire Pandemic”

“The person they hired to investigate the lab for the WHO perspective is the guy who gave the money”

Senator Rand Paul continued to slam White House medical advisor Thursday, saying that Anthony Fauci could be culpable for the entire coronavirus pandemic.

Paul was attacked by leftist media Wednesday for merely questioning Fauci’s extensive role in granting funding to the Wuhan Institute of Virology at a Senate hearing.

CNN’s Anderson Cooper declared that Paul should “have more respect at least for medical science.”

Paul hit back, noting that Fauci is lying about the NIH’s involvement in funding of the Wuhan lab.

Now in a further appearance on Fox And Friends, Paul has gone even deeper, accusing Fauci of being personally to blame for the global pandemic.

“The person they hired to investigate the lab for the WHO perspective is the guy who gave the money,” Paul urged.

“So NIH gave the money to EcoHealth. The head of EcoHealth – they got him to investigate whether Wuhan was doing anything inappropriate in their lab. But if they were then wouldn’t he be culpable?” The Senator questioned.

“Doesn’t he have a self interest in smoothing things over,” Paul continued, adding “I’m not saying he did cover things up but you wouldn’t appoint someone who is in the line of the supply chain of giving the money to them.”

“Ultimately here’s the rub. I don’t know whether it came from the lab. But who could be culpable? Dr. Fauci could be culpable for the entire pandemic!” Paul emphasised.

Watch:

As Infowars reported in April 2020, the NIH awarded a $3.7 million grant to the Wuhan Institute of Virology to conduct coronavirus gain of function research.

Additionally, the results of the US-backed gain of function research at Wuhan was published in 2017 under the heading, “Discovery of a rich gene pool of bat SARS-related coronaviruses provides new insights into the origin of SARS coronavirus.”

Fauci has come under increased scrutiny as the NIH’s involvement with the Wuhan lab is being called into question.

Merriam-Webster Expands Definition of ‘Anti-Vaxxer’ to Include Those Who Oppose Forced Jabs

Polls suggest that’s 79% of Americans.

The Merriam-Webster dictionary has expanded its definition of “anti-vaxxer” to include those who oppose mandatory jabs.

Yes, really.

The full definition of ‘anti-vaxxer’ now states, “a person who opposes vaccination or laws that mandate vaccination.”

It’s not known when the change was made, although in doing so Merriam-Webster has labeled millions of people ‘anti-vaxxers’ even if they don’t consider themselves to be anti-vaccination in principle.

The expanded definition means that even those who don’t doubt the efficacy or safety of vaccines and personally take them, but simply oppose the government having the power to forcibly inject someone, are now “anti-vaxxers.”

“Today I begin my new life as an anti-vaxxer,” tweeted Matt Walsh.

“When the Left controls the language, they control the narrative,” pointed out the Young America’s Foundation.

Indeed, a poll conducted by Morning Consult in December found that only 21% of Americans supported mandatory vaccinations, which means that 79% of Americans are now anti-vaxxers, according to Merriam-Webster’s definition.

“Anti-vaxxer” was the most-searched definition Wednesday on Merriam-Webster’s website,” reports RT. “Users of the site posted comments under the definition, complaining of “politics in the dictionary.” One observer said, “I, along with most of America, do not believe that trusting vaccines is synonymous with mandating them. We can’t even trust the dictionary anymore.”

In light of the roll out of the COVID-19 vaccination, the media has vehemently demonized “anti-vaxxers,” despite the AstraZeneca jab being pulled in several European countries due to its link to blood clots.

This is not the first time Merriam-Webster has changed definitions in a bid to amplify establishment narratives.

Last June, Merriam-Webster expanded its definition of “racism” to include “systemic oppression” of one racial group by another in response to a Black Lives Matter activist’s complaint.

Last October, the dictionary also edited its definition of “preference,” asserting that it was “offensive” to use it in the context of referring to someone’s “sexual preference.”
