The goal of most travelers is to get to their destination with as little interference as possible.
But under the guise of “safety,” airlines have gone from not just making air travel miserable – but to now working directly with the CDC and local health authorities to hand over your personal information.
From your email to your phone number, to your destination and an actual physical address of where you’re staying, this latest “deal with devil” has contact tracing in full effect.
Local officials are utterly obsessed with pushing contact tracing onto the masses.
But the truth is, this just hands over more of your personal information to people who have no business knowing where you go and who you’re with.
Of course, to avoid a full-blown uprising, the CDC says participation is “voluntary.”
But is it really?
What’s there to keep an untrained or power-hungry airline official from insisting a passenger has to comply?
For now, contact tracing is limited to international travel, but it’s only a matter of time before it trickles down to domestic flights.
Transportation Today reported:
“The implementation of a contact tracing program for international passengers is yet another measure in our multi-layered approach to mitigate risk and assure the traveling public that both U.S. airlines and the federal government are prioritizing the health and safety of passengers and crew,” Airlines for America President and CEO Nicholas E. Calio said”.
As if having the physical destination of travelers and their personal email is going to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Just like multiple studies have shown how ineffective the TSA is at stopping actual dangerous contraband from making it on the airplane…
… but they’re quick to snatch your 4oz bottle of lotion.
When the CDC tried to force contact tracing last year, Team Trump shut it down.
But with Biden now running the show – it’s a whole different ballgame.
Paddle Your Own Kanoo reports:
“A draft order from CDC for airline contact tracing that was drawn up last February was rejected by the then Trump-led White House over privacy concerns.
Airlines 4 America did not say on Friday how airlines planned to store and protect passenger data, how it would share any data collected and when such data would be destroyed.”
And that’s exactly it.
How will the personal information of travelers be stored and protected?
Where will it be distributed?
What safety measures are being put in place to prevent hackers from stealing your personal info?
Will “health authorities” use this info to further terrorize travelers even after they leave the airport?
Of course, there are no answers.
The same is true with facial recognition scans which essentially uses your face as a means for identifying you – except you can’t conceal it.
Anytime the government gets more information on you, it’s just asking for trouble.
But under the rule of Biden, TSA now has the authority to fine you if your 3-year-old won’t keep their mask on.
Hopefully travelers will exercise their freedom and “opt out” of the latest “voluntary” contact tracing program.
But I’m afraid many will comply out of fear of retribution from the airlines – who already boast about the number of people they’ve banned for life for not following the latest “safety” protocols.
