VP Kamala Harris Says No Bluetooth or Wireless Earphones Due to Security Risks; Of course, They Pose Fire and Health Risks Too

By B.N. Frank

Wireless wearables (activity trackers/watches, ear phones, hearing aids, rings, Virtual Reality (VR) goggles, etc.) utilize Bluetooth and/or Wi-Fi technologies.  Security experts have warned for years about cybersecurity risks from these technologies  (see 1, 2, 3).  Nevertheless, Vice President Harris has recently been ridiculed for choosing not wearing them due to national security risks.

Politico slammed for ‘inventing a disease’ to criticize Kamala Harris for not using Bluetooth

New report says Kamala Harris ‘is Bluetooth-phobic’, Internet backed embattled VP saying she ‘goes the extra mile’ for national security

Over the past several months, Vice President Kamala Harris has been involved in scandal after scandal, leading to increased attacks on her ability to govern, and decreased approval ratings. On December 6 however, a slightly different story made headlines, leading the Internet to back the embattled VP and praise her decision to put national security first.

As we have extensively reported, Harris’ critics continue to mount over numerous allegations against her. On December 5, she was dubbed a “bully” as staffers continued to leave her office less than a year in. There’s also a long-running rumor that all’s not well between President Joe Biden and Harris, culminating in the POTUS giving her the cold shoulder at a Thanksgiving photo op in DC.

Amidst these negative stories, POLITICO on December 6 revealed that Harris was “Bluetooth-phobic”, and that she believed wireless earphones were a “security risk”. If it was meant to be a criticism of the VP, it appears the publication failed as many rallied behind Harris and slammed POLITICO for its reporting.

The risks of Bluetooth

The December 6 story says “While a growing number of consumers are going wireless, the vice president is sticking with the classics. She has long felt that Bluetooth headphones are a security risk. As a result, Harris insists on using wired headphones,” according to three former campaign aides. The story goes on to indicate that Harris has been frequently seen in public with wired headphones, including her viral “we did it Joe!” video in November 2020.

Alex Thompson, the journalist behind the story reportedly asked Harris’ office for any background on the VP’s apprehension for the technology but didn’t get a response. However, it doesn’t seem to be a family issue. First Gentleman Doug Emhoff doesn’t appear to have any such concerns, as he’s been frequently spotted using Apple’s AirPods.

“But still, should someone who travels with the nuclear football be spending time untangling her headphone wires? The American people deserve answers!” wrote POLITICO, but it was clearly no joke to social media. Both POLITICO and Thompson were quickly attacked on Twitter, with the word “Bluetooth” becoming a trending topic just hours after the story was published.

‘They literally invented a disease’

Many users were quick to slam POLITICO, with one person tweeting, “I’m sorry, let me attempt to summarize this: VP Kamala Harris is now being criticized for using wired headphones instead of Bluetooth because she’s worried about security risks and this is bad because… we don’t want a Vice President who goes the extra mile in national security?” Another commented, “Trump used his personal cell phone as president despite it being an explicit security risk, but of course POLITICO is out criticizing VP Harris for taking security precautions and avoiding Bluetooth.” Another slammed, “She’s right. You’re wrong. Bluetooth has been hackable for years – look up “bluebagging.” You can eavesdrop and even insert voice into it. Instead of talking about her like she’s paranoid, maybe consider she’s understands something about security you do not.”

““Bluetooth phobia.” They literally invented a disease to label the first black, first female, first Asian, Vice President with **for taking extra security precautions with our nation’s secrets**,” one person commented. One user replied, “Well, duh. Bluetooth headphones ARE a security risk.” Another attacked the journalist responsible, tweeting, “Tell us you know nothing about Bluetooth without telling us you know nothing about Bluetooth… Alex will start with several paragraphs of ridiculousness…”

“I can’t think of a VP story of any more interest to the American people. Bravo,” one user mocked Thompson. Another slammed, “Oh, my GOD! The VP is concerned about security! Also, journalism in this country is all but dead.” One user commented, “You know this is like one step removed from middle-school cafeteria rumors, right?” While Harris herself hasn’t responded to the story, her Senior Advisor and Chief Spokesperson Symone Sanders did. Sanders replied to Thompson’s tweet about the story with “Not to be snarky, but we had more important things to do today.”

I can’t think of a VP story of any more interest to the American people. Bravo.

Bluetooth and/or wireless wearables are also at risk for fires, explosions, and overheating (see 1, 2).  In fact, just last week DeWalt wireless earphones were recalled due to burn and fire injuries to wearers.There have also been warnings that wireless wearables and other wireless devices can interfere with medical implants (cardio defibrillators, pacemakers, etc.) (see 1, 2).

Last but not least, for years, wireless wearable owners have also reported health complaints from these devices (dizziness, electric shock, rashes, other undesirable conditions and symptoms) some of which have led to recalls and/or lawsuits (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6).  Of course these devices do emit high levels of biologically harmful wireless radiation and in August 2021, a federal court ruled in favor of petitioners who sued the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) for not protecting Americans from harmful wireless radiation exposure (see also 1, 2).
