Biden has been caught red-handed breaking the Constitution
Joe Biden’s cards are all bluffs; he does not have an ace on his hand.
The appeal Biden filed on Monday lacks even one winning argument to defend himself in a lawsuit that Federal District Court Judge Terry Doughty calls the “most massive attack on free speech in US history.”
You can count on it going nowhere. Biden has been caught red-handed violating the Constitution.
On July 4, Judge Doughty announced that the evidence produced so far indicates the president is operating a vast, illegal censorship scheme to muzzle his critics.
BIDEN LIKELY VIOLATED FIRST AMENDMENT DURING COVID-19 PANDEMIC, FEDERAL JUDGE SAYS
Doughty knows tyranny when he sees it. He’s got the goods on the Biden administration, and he laid out his evidence in 155 pages, all meticulously footnoted.
Biden, numerous White House staff and employees of 11 federal agencies are being sued for operating a whole-of-government censorship operation to prevent you — the public — from seeing social media posts that challenge Biden policies on a wide range of issues from vaccines to climate change, inflation and more. Not to mention any posts that mock Biden family members. Straight out of Kim Jong Un’s playbook.
Doughty cited ample evidence — emails, meeting notes, sworn testimony and correspondence — showing the Biden administration strong-arms media platforms into serving as government censors. The Constitution bars the government from censoring, so Biden is coercing social media to do the dirty work for him. That, reasons Doughty, is just as unconstitutional.
THESE ARE THE OFFICIALS BLOCKED FROM MEETING WITH SOCIAL MEDIA COMPANIES IN DRAMATIC FIRST AMENDMENT RULING
To halt this assault on freedom as an election nears, Doughty issued an order on July 4 barring Biden himself and dozens of White House staff and federal agency employees from any further communications with executives at Facebook/Meta, Twitter, YouTube/Google, WhatsApp, Instagram and other platforms “for the purpose of encouraging, pressuring, or inducing in any manner the removal, deletion, suppression, or reduction of content.”
The White House denies coercing social media executives, insisting they make “independent choices.”That’s risible. Doughty documents the demands made to social media and the coercive language that White House staff and other federal employees used. Biden officials met with tech executives regularly and flagged content they wanted removed.
Doughty cites numerous times administration spokespeople warned that the Biden administration would consider altering Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which protects social media platforms from being held liable for what they post or refuse to post. That threat is tantamount to holding a gun to their heads.
The purpose of the First Amendment, explained Doughty, is to “preserve an uninhibited marketplace of ideas.”
