The Biden Administration Wants to Know Your Bathing Habits and Fertility
Since the public has increasingly become aware of the government’s boundless corruption, thanks to investigative journalism and online free speech platforms, the Biden administration has launched an effort to learn everything about people, including their most private information like bathing habits.
The Rutherford Institute, a Virginia-based nonprofit that stands for constitutional rights, rang alarm bells last week over a mandatory American Community Survey (ACS) launched by the Census Bureau to collect private information about citizens. Expressing opposition to the Bureau’s survey, the institute posted a 10-page Q&A document with its announcement that helps people better understand the survey in the context of their constitutional rights. The document lists what kind of information the Biden administration’s Census Bureau wants to gather from Americans:
These concern matters that the government simply has no business knowing, including questions relating to respondents’ bathing habits, home utility costs, fertility, marital history, work commute, mortgage, and health insurance, among others. For instance, the ACS asks how many persons live in your home, along with their names and detailed information about them such as their relationship to you, marital status, race and their physical, mental and emotional problems, etc.
The institute wrote that the real danger posed by this survey remains in how this information will be used by the government and with whom will it be shared. It said that hundreds of thousands of people who received the ACS have reached out to the institute and expressed unwillingness to share such private information with the government. Adding to the concerns, the survey recipients are reportedly “unsettled by the aggressive tactics utilized by Census Bureau field representatives seeking to compel responses to ACS questions.”
When people do not respond online or by mail, the Census Bureau repeatedly sends field representatives to their homes at unannounced times to harass and interview them until they answer the survey.
Just last year, the Census Bureau included questions about people’s gender identity and sexual lives in its ongoing survey, prompting the Rutherford Institute to create a form letter of complaint for civilians to lodge objections to the ACS with the Census Bureau.
The Census Bureau made news in 2022 when it was admitted that its 2020 Census of American population was incorrect in at least 14 states. The Bureau called it an error and downplayed it. But conservatives noted that this incorrect counting significantly affected the 2020 election. As analyzed by The Heritage Foundation, the Bureau undercounted the population in major important red states like Florida and Texas while it overcounted people in blue states.
As a result of these errors, Florida did not receive two additional congressional seats and Texas did not receive one more congressional seat. Meanwhile, two other states, Minnesota and Rhode Island, each retained a congressional seat that they should have lost, and Colorado gained a new seat to which it was rightfully not entitled.
The mainstream media did not make the Bureau’s alleged error an issue and the Republicans in the affected red states also ignored the implications of the incorrect population figures.
