RESTRICT Act (Ban TikTok Bill) is a Bipartisan Trojan Horse to Transform America Into a Totalitarian State


There’s a significant push in Congress from establishment members of both parties to ban the Chinese-based social media platform TikTok.

The proposed RESTRICT Act, which would ban TikTok under the guise of protecting Americans’ private information from the Chinese Communist Party, would give the United States federal government totalitarian surveillance powers.

Ironically, the RESTRICT Act (S. 686) would give the United States government CCP-like powers to spy on us.

The claim to ‘protect Americans from TikTok’ is a smokescreen to trample on our inalienable rights.

Some analysts have dubbed the RESTRICT Act the ‘PATRIOT Act of the internet.’

“The bill to ban TikTok is absolutely terrifying. It gives the government the ability to go after anyone they deem as a national security risk at which point they can access everything from their computer to video games to their ring light,” Greg Price wrote.

“This is a Patriot Act for the internet.”





“Believe it or not, it gets even worse: If you find you in violation, they can put you in jail for 20 years, fine you $1M, and seize your property. They can also deem any foreign government an adversary without informing congress and everything they do is not subjected to FOIA,” Price added.





“If this was about banning TikTok, they would pass a bill that simply bans TikTok. But the uniparty is trying to create the same system of domestic spying they did after 9/11 for the internet but on steroids,” Price wrote.

“The bill was introduced by Senator Mark Warner from Virginia. Here’s a list of all the people co-sponsoring it. Basically runs the table for worst members of the DC uniparty.”



“The RESTRICT Act is not limited to just TikTok. It gives the government authority over all forms of communication domestic or abroad and grants powers to ‘enforce any mitigation measure to address any risk’ to national security now and in any ‘potential future transaction,'” Mises Caucus wrote.

“So what happens if you are designated a national security threat? What can they access of yours to confirm it? Everything. Notice the preemptive attack on quantum encryption in there, too.”

UncoverDC reported:

Dubbed the TikTok bill because of discussion over banning the app because of TikTok’s ties to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), the bill has very little to do with the Chinese-controlled app. Instead, it lists a number of foreign adversaries who allegedly pose a national security risk. China is one of the named foreign adversaries.

The Commerce Secretary has control over the list of foreign adversaries and does not have to notify Congress when he or she changes the list. The bill allows a 15-day delay in notifying the President of those on the list. The Secretary may also create, keep, and revise “lists of foreign persons.” Anyone who poses a threat to critical infrastructure (like elections) can be deemed an adversary because of how critical infrastructure was defined in section 1016(e) of the Patriot Act. If your name is on that list, due process seems to go out the window.

This bill authorizes the Secretary and “relevant executive department and agency heads” to fully control “any risk arising from” your devices or your activity on the internet in your own home. Those department heads, see (P. 8), include pretty much anyone the government sees fit to appoint. Section 3 addresses the “relevant” department and agency heads and the many justifications for their intrusion. The rationales include almost anything they deem “poses an unacceptable risk.”

What kinds of virtual and otherwise devices are fair game, you ask? Any and all. The list is comprehensive. It includes e-commerce sites, payment technologies, online marketplaces, biotechnology, synthetic biology, post-quantum cryptology, quantum key distribution (security keys used to encrypt and decrypt messages), and more.

“So you would be allowing the executive branch, the Biden administration, to regulate speech on the internet. And if you are somehow involved with a ‘foreign adversary,’ or let’s say you oppose the war against Russia, you go to prison for 20 years. So this isn’t about banning TikTok. This is about introducing flat-out totalitarianism into our system,” Tucker Carlson said.
