Brandon administration and hackers may spy on and control Americans via automobile

USA- The Brandon administration just loves control. Such is the case under a new law which mandates that any new vehicle sold in the US after 2026 must be equipped with electronic “kill switches.”

The excuse given is that they would be used to prevent drunks from operating vehicles, but given the power-hungry nature of the current administration, as well as a number of state governors, the possibility for abuse is clearly something which bears watching.

The thing about anything electronic such as this is the fact they could be misused either by the government for something like…say…government-mandated lockdowns during a national “health emergency.” Conversely, there is also the possibility that actors with nefarious intentions, such as computer hackers, could also seize control of one’s vehicle.

The American Thinker notes that the law, as so many of these measures are, was buried deep inside the Brandon administration’s $1.2 trillion “infrastructure” bill passed last year.

The measure would ostensibly allow law enforcement officials…or maybe public health bureaucrats such as St. Anthony of Fauci…to shut of someone’s car remotely, while also tracking the car’s location, metrics or possibly even the passenger load of the vehicle.

As mentioned above, the law was passed for the purposes of cutting down on drunk driving, however, might also be used to prevent high-speed chases.

Any such system would require vehicles to be connected to wireless networks, which isn’t much of a stretch since a majority of new cars (and virtually all electric vehicles) come standard with Wi-Fi capability. General Motors was one of the leading car manufacturers to include in-car internet connectivity over ten years ago through its OnStar system.

There are a number of problems with such a system being accessible by the federal (or state) government(s), not the least of which is privacy concerns and that little old Fourth Amendment. Not that the Brandon administration concerns itself with most of the Bill of Rights to begin with, such as the First and Second Amendments. Ah hell, most of the Constitution is a bitter inconvenience to the current regime.

Last November, former U.S. Rep. Bob Barr (R-GA) warned that such devices are a “privacy disaster in the making,” while further warning the law is “disturbingly short on details.” Law Enforcement Today published a piece on the kill switches last year, which is included below.

Barr added: “What we do know is that the ‘safety’ device must ‘passively monitor the performance of a driver of a motor vehicle to accurately identify whether that driver may be impaired.’ Everything about this mandatory measure should set off red flares.”

Such a law has possible chilling consequences, if taken to an absurd level, which is not beyond the realm of possibility with this federal government. What is to say the federal government couldn’t take control of all manner of modern-day conveniences? What is to say that they couldn’t take over home appliances such as refrigerators, stoves, and air conditioners? What about hour HVAC systems?

Why do you think the bureaucracy is pushing things such as the “smart grid?” Once again, that would allow the federal government to control what Americans set their thermostats at, how many hours per day we could run our air conditioning.

The possibilities are truly chilling…and dystopian.
