Biden’s Press Secretary admits Federal Government is flagging content for Facebook to censor
The announcement is raising First Amendment violation flags.

The White House press secretary Jen Psaki has made a startling admission at a press briefing on Thursday that the US government is actively coordinating with Facebook to flag the posts of United States citizens for being “problematic” and containing COVID-19 “misinformation.”

The admission has raised First Amendment free speech rights implications, particularly as previous lawsuits that have accused Facebook and the government of working together to censor online content have been dismissed due to a judge finding “lack of evidence.”

Psaki’s admission could open the doors to finding that evidence.

This is censorship, anti 1st A. But someone has to sue and scotus has to not cuck out… a lot of things that generally don’t occur.

As I've documented before, the Supreme Court has ruled that the First Amendment's free speech guarantee is violated when government officials pressure or coerce private actors to censor for them. That is exactly what the Biden WH is doing with Facebook

Legal Group Launches Effort to Learn About Biden Administration’s Coordination With Big Tech
BY ZACHARY STIEBER July 17, 2021

A legal group is seeking information on the extent of the Biden administration’s coordination with Big Tech after White House officials this week said they were in regular communication with the companies.


Lawsuits are the answer.

WHAT? Jen Psaki says you should be banned from all social media if you get booted off one site for "misinformation"

Yesterday, from February to May to be precise, Facebook censored postings about COVID-19 being a manmade virus, created in the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Today, a government that won’t tell you what it knows about COVID-19’s origins will arbitrarily censor your opinions about the mass rollout of an untested vaccine that uses new technology. Tomorrow, it’ll be something else. And while no one willingly lets the government into their home, the digital snoops of social media are already there, ready to denounce us.

Psaki: No options are “off the table” regarding regulating online speech


How about violating the First Amendment? Is that off the table?

Apparently not.

The fact that Donald Trump is not praised on every page and in every column of every newspaper in the world is proof of a conspiracy against him and his rights to endless triumph, now and forever.

Lol! That's not the White House! And... The wall around the White House went up under the Trump administration 🤣. Don't believe me? Look it up.


There was no fence around the white house under the Trump administration. If there was, how would people have been setup to enter the capital on January 6th?

I hate it when people make a false claim, and then challenge people to "look it up". You're never going to find something that doesn't exist.

They built the xiden fence after the capitol attacks, but there was a partial fence already around it, though clearly not massive enough to not being conquered easily by grandmas and shamans. Supposedly the enforcing xiden fence has started to come down at some point, current status is unclear.

What is the name for this dishonest form of argument where the point is willfully exaggerated and then that strawman is refuted?

James Damore used the term "misrepresent and shame", where the left (and it's always the left for some reason) deliberately misrepresents and then attempts to shame for something that was never asserted.

The point is, and the truth is, that it's a gross violation of freedom of speech to have the executive branch coordinating with tech monopolies to censor dissenting opinions. And it is in fact clearly similar to the operations of Mao, Stalin, and Hitler with respect to free speech, especially when we have hundreds of political prisoners now who were arrested for protesting election fraud after being invited into the Capitol and taking selfies.

I just demonstrated they produce pretty obvious propaganda. Business insider isn't a reliable source, anymore than the Atlantic, Fox, or MSNBC is. Try again.

Lol so you are saying the pictures are fake? Do you have any proof Trump didn't do as the article claims?


I have proof that business insider is filled with liars and hacks. Because of this, anything they claim, I just ignore, because they do blatantly lie.

TC45 says
That those pictures are photo shopped?
This doesn't make it any less true.


Look, if a supposed "news source" is going to lie to my face, and they do, why would I consider anything they write to be credible? Find a credible source.

I have sat through 20 years of being fully aware that "reporters" will goddamned lie to me, and make BLATANT lies. In one instance, CNN was claiming that they had video footage of a Russian invasion into Ukraine. Well, it turned out to be archival footage of the Ukrainian and Russian army doing military exercises before the US overthrew Yanukovych and they keep reporting on that as a "revolution" - well, it's goddamned easy for me to talk to a Ukrainian.

I can show you example, after example, after example of when our "news media" just completely fucking lies to us, about things that are EASY to verify they are lying to us about.

They have done shit like show protests in "China" where the soldiers in uniform are wearing Indian uniforms. I am so fucking tired of it. They tried to pass off a video of a supposed Turkish attack against the Kurds, which turned out to be a Kentucky gun show. They don't care, they lie their asses off ALL THE TIME, and they are "duh, why doesn't anybody trust us"? They are completely not worth paying attention to at this point.

For 4 years it was "Trump is losing his mind and is cognitively disabled!" - and silence on Biden. Every goddamned thing they do is insincere, misleading, and dishonest. It's complete propaganda. Would they goddamned lie about a wall - of course they would. There was a time in the 1990's when a "news station" told a whopper, SOMEBODY would call them out on it in the national media - that ended in 2000.

The internet is filled with propagandists, and trolls, and general assholes - that's now far, FAR, more reliable information than "a trusted authoritative source". That's the state of "corporate news". I honestly don't know who wastes their time listening to them. If you haven't figured out that they are malicious, viscous liars, by now you never will, and I'm certain you have actually figured it out. Stop pretending it's weird at this point to have figured out the blatantly obvious.

Ok, fair enough. I did not know. The wall around the White House seems like a story not easily faked. I really don't know much about business insider. Thanks for the tip. I know it's all propaganda. All


The very first thing I do, when somebody gives me a source, it to go to the top level of the source, and see if they are publishing bullshit or not. Here, you want a fairly reliable news source in the United States?

https://www.wsws.org/en

The fact that THAT is now a, relatively, reliable news source, is showing you that our "news organizations" are betraying the country. I'm not at all a communist, but that site, if you ignore "the analysis" is quite accurate on reporting what is going on. That's pathetic.

And BTW - they are HARDLY accurate, they're just better than CNN, Fox, MSNBC, the NY Times, PBS, NPR..

Issue: July 29, 2021
New bill would force government to disclose online censorship requests
Not that the Federal Government should be violating the First Amendment anyway. ...

A Republican senator has introduced a bill that would require the White House to disclose the censorship requests it sends to Facebook and other social media companies. ...

On Wednesday, Sen. Bill Hagerty (R-TN) introduced a bill focused on revealing the extent of censorship requests from the White House to social media platforms. The bill, called the Disclose Government Censorship Act, is co-sponsored by Sens. Roger Marshall (R-KS), Marco Rubio (R-FL), and Mike Rounds (R-SD).

We obtained a copy of the bill for you here.

“The recent collusion that has come to light between the Biden Administration and Big Tech is not only disturbing, but inconsistent with the government’s constitutional role in American life,” Hagerty said in a statement.
