Biden Blocked: Federal Judge Rules In Favor of First Amendment

AG Jeff Landry Wins Injunction Against Federal Censorship Enterprise 

MONROE, LA – Yesterday a federal judge blocked the Biden Administration from colluding with Big Tech companies to censor Americans' protected speech. In Louisiana and Missouri v. Biden et al., Judge Terry Doughty of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana prohibited key Biden officials from pressuring or conspiring with social media companies to suppress any content containing protected free speech on their platforms.
Here are a few key excerpts:
  • pg. 2: "The right to free speech is not a member of any political party and does not hold any political ideology. It is the purpose of the Free Speech Clause of the First Amendment to preserve an uninhibited marketplace of ideas in which truth will ultimately prevail, rather than to countenance monopolization of the market, whether it be by government itself or private licensee." 

  • pg. 3: "The question does not concern whether speech is conservative, moderate, liberal, progressive, or somewhere in between. What matters is that Americans, despite their views, will not be censored or suppressed by the Government." 

  • pg. 100: "The White House and platforms were 'partners' in censorship: 'The White House Defendants used emails, private portals, meetings, and other means to involve itself as 'partners' with social-media platforms. Many emails between the White House and social-media companies referred to themselves as 'partners.' Twitter even sent the White House a 'Partner Support Portal' for expedited review of the the White House Requests. Both the White House and the social-media companies referrred to themselves as 'partners' and 'on the same team' in their efforts to censor disinformation, such as their efforts to censor 'vaccine hesitancy' spread. The White House and the social-media companies also demonstrated that they were 'partners' by suppressing information that did not even violate the social-media companies' own policies." 

  • pg. 101: "Faced with unrelenting pressure from the most powerful office in the world, the social-media companies apparently complied." 

  • pg. 102-103: "Each United States citizen has the right to decide for himself or herself what is true and what is false. The Government and.or the OSG does not have the right to determine the truth." 

  • pg. 154: "The evidence produced thus far depicts an almost dystopian scenario." 

The court order blocks the Department of Health and Human Services, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the United States Census Bureau, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the United States Department of Justice, members of the Executive Office of the President of the United States – including the White House Press Secretary, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, the United States Department of Homeland Security, and the United States Department of State.
