Popular commentator Tucker Carlson recently released an episode on his concerns on social media suggesting Joe Biden and Democrats already are well on their way to making the United States a dictatorship.

It was prompted by a network’s chyron calling Biden a “wannabe dictator” and explaining how he’d had his political rival, President Donald Trump, arrested.

Carlson, sarcastically, pointed out the “dictator-level” of data on private citizens Biden is accumulating because that’s what “non-dictators” do.

Now a new report is out confirming the deep dive into private information that the government is doing.

The report at BoldTV said a declassified report from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence confirmed “the government stockpiles our personal information.”

There are commercial data brokers and just a short list of their targets are home addresses, birthdays, phone numbers and more.

“The report shows our commercially available information (CAI) could be harmful depending on the purchaser’s intent,” explained BoldTV.

The ODNI conclusions included, “[CAI] has increasingly important risks and implications for U.S. person privacy and civil liberties. CAI can reveal sensitive and intimate information about individuals. Without proper controls, CAI can be misused to cause substantial harm, embarrassment, and inconvenience to U.S. persons.”

Explained BoldTV, “On other words, your personal information is publicly available to anyone who wants to purchase the data. Additionally, the report openly admits that the vast troves of info we willingly forfeit makes the federal government more powerful. And that the significant majority of people don’t understand just how much commercial data reveals about their lives.”

It cites details like “the geolocation of your vehicle and smartphone and even your internet history.”

That’s even available to cops who look to avoid the Fourth Amendment by buying those details.

The report was ordered by U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., to determine “just how much the federal government knows about our personal lives.”

The senator has expressed concern about a possible “irreversible surveillance state.”

The report noted the U.S. “lacks a comprehensive federal statute protecting consumers from companies collecting and selling commercial data.”

Lifesite News earlier reported on Carlson’s comments.

“Mocking leftist protests to the contrary, Tucker Carlson laid out the case on Thursday evening for why the Joe Biden presidency represents the final stages of transforming the United States into a full-fledged dictatorship during the latest installment of his new show on Twitter,” the report said.

“With sharp satire, Carlson compared Joe Biden, his administration, and the legacy media with dictatorships from around the world. This included the common corruption in arresting the dictator’s principle political rivals, their enriching of their family selling political influence, the thwarting of large protests through murder (Ashli Babbitt) and intimidation (SWAT-type raids and draconian treatment of political dissenters), censorship, comprehensive surveillance and a focus on destroying parental rights over their children.”

The report said, “In covering the Biden administration’s indictment of the Republican frontrunner for president on Tuesday evening, Fox News projected two live video feeds of Biden and former President Donald Trump making respective addresses with a banner at the bottom of the screen saying, ‘WANNABE DICTATOR SPEAKS AT THE WHITE HOUSE AFTER HAVING HIS POLITICAL RIVAL ARRESTED.'”

Carlson continued, with a note about the Democrats’ anger.

“But why were they angry? If the banner on Fox was false, why the hysteria? Calling Joe Biden a ‘wannabe dictator,’ that stung! So, you’ve got to wonder — if you’re being honest with yourself — is Joe Biden [actually] a wannabe dictator?”

He mocked, “Oh, no comment necessary. Of course, Joe Biden’s not a ‘wannabe dictator!’ Just because he’s trying to put the other candidate in prison for the rest of his life, for a crime he himself committed, doesn’t mean he has a totalitarian impulse. C’mon! That’s absurd! It takes a lot more than jailing your political rivals to earn the title, ‘wannabe dictator.'”

IMPORTANT NOTE: “Election denier!” “Science denier!” “Climate-change denier!” “Conspiracy theorist!” And then there’s “hate speech,” “fake news,” “disinformation,” “misinformation,” even something called “MALinformation.” A bizarre new lexicon has been conjured up by America’s elites, the SOLE PURPOSE of which is to discredit and ridicule – and if at all possible, CENSOR ENTIRELY – speech that doesn’t support their increasingly dark and deranged agenda. Tucker Carlson is just the latest.

In the greatest imaginable irony, the nation once boasting the most robust culture of freedom of speech and the press – undergirded by the strongest constitutional protections for those rights – is now ground zero for a total war on free expression.

How could this possibly happen in the United States of America? It’s all explained as never before in the sensational new issue of WND’s critically acclaimed WHISTLEBLOWER magazine, titled “THE ELITES’ ALL-OUT WAR ON FREE SPEECH.” WHISTLEBLOWER is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
