In the early stages of the COVID lockdowns, a well-connected private group employed dirty political campaign methods to designate American citizens for their degree of compliance with COVID-19 restrictions by mass-surveilling free people.
These acts ought to be particularly alarming in light of the federal government’s implementation of the “COVID-19 orders,” which were carried out without the people’s permission, and the knowledge that Americans were being spied on at the time.
“Voter analytics firm PredictWise harvested location data from tens of millions of US cellphones during the initial Covid lockdown months and used this data to assign a “Covid-19 decree violation” score to the people associated with the phones,” According to Reclaiming the Internet, they added:
“These Covid-19 decree violation scores were calculated by analyzing nearly two billion global positioning system (GPS) pings to get “real-time, ultra-granular locations patterns.” People who were “on the go more often than their neighbors” were given a high Covid-19 decree violation score while those who mostly or always stayed at home were given a low Covid-19 decree violation score.”
Also where did the COVID regulations first come from? Check out the Environmental Protection Agency’s memo on orders and enforcement in this location, for instance:
“This temporary policy makes EPA offices and the EPA’s governmental and private sector partners, as well as the general public, aware of how the EPA intends to exercise its enforcement discretion with respect to certain compliance situations during the exigencies of the COVID-19 pandemic.”

So how far away from a police state are we really?
The covert intent behind implementing these federalized “emergency and temporary” policies—on which no American voted—is now being revealed by recent media revelations. Here is an example of how the left stole the “People’s government.”
“Tens of millions of US citizens were given a “COVID-19 decree violation” score as a result of a data harvesting program conducted during the first lockdown by voter analytics firm PredictWise,” Paul Joseph Watson reported for The Summit.
David Rothschild formed the left-leaning nonprofit PredictWise, and their website describes them as being somewhat shady:
“PredictWise was founded in 2017 by Tobi Kontizer (Stanford, PhD, and previously of Facebook Research) and David Rothschild (UPenn, PhD, and previously of Microsoft) after identifying a lack of long-term, continuous data in targeting and political decision-making. Currently, Konitzer serves as CEO of PredictWise and Rothschild as the Chief Data Scientist.
In 4 short years, PredictWise has grown to a staff of 10 including a data science team, sales force, and marketing staff. In 2020, PredictWise made its first push into the political landscape serving data to campaigns both large and small – from the Cupertino school levy and Ohio state senate campaigns to the Democratic National Committees, Democratic state parties, federal candidates, national progressive organizations, and Super PACs.”

How they became the authority to punish Americans for a COVID-19 violation is unknown to the public.
“These Covid-19 decree violation scores were calculated by analyzing nearly two billion global positioning system (GPS) pings to get “real-time, ultra-granular locations patterns.” People who were “on the go more often than their neighbors” were given a high Covid-19 decree violation score while those who mostly or always stayed at home were given a low Covid-19 decree violation score,” writes Reclaim the Net’s Tom Parker.
“The data collected was then used by PredictWise to help Democrats target over 350,000 “COVID concerned” Republicans with campaign ads relating to virus prevention measures,” Watson wrote, adding the following details in his article:
“PredictWise understood that there were potential pockets of voters to target with Covid-19 messaging and turned high-dimensional data covering over 100 million Americans into measures of adherence to Covid-19 restrictions during deep lockdown,”the company states in its white paper.
