SCOTUS Case Will Impact Everything We Say...

Feb 9, 2024

For the last three years, the Biden administration has used the might of the most powerful office in the world to force social media companies to censor and delete the accounts of political enemies and anyone who dared speak out against the Biden regime.

Last July, a federal judge ordered the Biden administration to STOP censoring Americans. But Biden is unrepentant. Now the case is before the U.S. Supreme Court where Liberty Counsel is filing a brief defending the First Amendment RIGHT to free speech — even speech that Joe Biden doesn’t like. Read on to learn more about our latest filing with the High Court. — Mat

How many times over the last few years has a social media company flagged and/or removed your posts after “fact checkers” mysteriously determined the content was “misinformation” or a violation of vague polices?

It turns out those social media companies were not working of their own accord in these censorship matters. Documents reveal that directives to silence political dissidents, whether about COVID, 2020 election fraud, or even Hunter Biden’s laptop, came straight from the federal government.
In fact, MILLIONS of Americans — including Biden’s political rival Robert F. Kennedy Jr., former President Donald Trump, along with everyday Americans like you and me — were censored by order of the White House.

In July, Chief U.S. District Judge Terry Doughty for the Western District of Louisiana reviewed evidence derived from thousands of internal federal records revealing correspondence between officials and technology companies in their exact words. The evidence was damning.

Much of the censorship came directly from the White House, with actors like Clarke Humphrey, Biden’s former digital director for the COVID-19 Response Team, demanding media companies delete Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s posts.

Rob Flaherty, former deputy assistant to the president and director of digital strategy, confronted another social media company, demanding they speed up deleting user posts on COVID 19.

Biden’s FBI was in on the muzzling game as well, forwarding specific posts to social media, demanding they be deleted, and according to Judge Doughty’s ruling, “actually misled social media companies in regard to the Hunter Biden laptop story.”

Meanwhile, Biden’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) colluded with Stanford University and the University of Washington to do their bogus “fact checking” and censorship recommendations for them in an effort “to get around unclear legal authorities, including very real First Amendment questions’ that would arise if CISA or the other government agencies were to monitor and flag information for censorship on social media,” according to the Judge’s ruling.

It is quite telling that each example or category of suppressed speech was conservative in nature. This targeted suppression of conservative ideas is a perfect example of viewpoint discrimination of political speech,” Judge Doughty wrote. American citizens have the right to engage in free debate about the significant issues affecting the country.

NEVER in America’s history has any administration so blatantly robbed Americans of their First Amendment right to free speech.

"[The Biden administration] Defendants made it very clear to social media companies what they wanted suppressed and what they wanted amplified,” Judge Doughty stated. “Faced with unrelenting pressure from the most powerful office in the world, the social-media companies apparently complied."

Reading the factual findings of the disturbing pattern of censorship, one would assume this is China or a dystopian novel. Sadly, this government-coordinated censorship occurred in America at the highest levels of government. The Biden administration and government agencies knowingly and intentionally deceived the public. Everyone involved must be held accountable.

On July 4, Independence Day of all days, Judge Doughty delivered a scathing rebuke to the Biden administration and a preliminary injunction forbidding Joe Biden, at least 40 of his cabinet officials, the Departments of Justice, State, Homeland Security, and Health and Human Services, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the FBI, and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA) from “pressuring” or “encouraging” the censoring of social media content.

But Joe Biden is completely unrepentant. Instead of upholding the Constitution he swore to defend, Biden is appealing the ruling! He wants to censor MORE!

The alarming findings of facts in this case reveal the federal government has engaged in unprecedented censorship not unlike the propaganda machine of Nazi Germany. Tragically, the Biden administration’s pervasive censorship of opposing views in concert with complicit social media companies is undermining our inalienable right to free speech. We must erect a wall of separation between the media and the state.

The Biden administration’s shameful and unprecedented censorship of protected speech violates our most fundamental liberty. This is the worst censorship in history, and it harmed people by preventing the dissemination of life-saving information. What the U.S. Constitution directly prevents, government officials cannot do indirectly through private actors.

Today, Liberty Counsel filed an amicus brief on this case. In the last three years alone, Liberty Counsel has won all the U.S. Supreme Court cases we have argued or briefed — including cases on viewpoint discrimination. Joe Biden’s lawless censorship MUST be stopped.
