From the Tom Woods Letter:
Attorney Jenin Younes, whom I interviewed on episode #1947 of the Tom Woods Show, discussed a lawsuit today in which her firm is representing prominent lockdown critics Jay Bhattacharya (Stanford), Martin Kulldorff (Harvard), and others who were victims of censorship campaigns at the direction of the federal government.
“Thousands of pages of documents have exposed a censorship campaign both unprecedented and formerly unimagined in scale and in scope,” said Younes.
We also heard today from the attorney general of Missouri; an excerpt follows:
In May, we filed a landmark lawsuit against top ranking Biden Administration officials for colluding with social media companies to censor free speech. We have already received documents that show their cozy relationship, and now we’re demanding more.
In July of 2022, MO and LA served discovery requests and third-party subpoenas, demanding documents from top-ranking Biden Administration officials and social media companies over their alleged collusion to suppress freedom of speech.
The Department of Justice is refusing to produce communications between the most senior officials and social media companies – yesterday we filed a joint petition asking the Court to compel them to produce those documents.
Here’s what we know so far. DOJ identified 45 federal officials who have interacted with social media companies on misinformation.
Beyond DOJ, Meta identified 32 additional federal officials including White House Officials who communicated with them, and YouTube identified 11 federal officials including White House Officials who communicated with them, many of whom were not disclosed by DOJ.
This is a vast censorship enterprise, and the American people deserve to see the truth. Here are examples that already prove that federal officials and social media companies are coordinating on censorship, and we’re not close to being done yet:
A senior FB official sent an email to the Surgeon General stating, “I know our teams met today to better understand the scope of what the White House expects from us on misinformation going forward.” This email chain follows the SG’s “misinformation health advisory” in July 2021.
The same senior official sent a later email to HHS and noted, “Thanks again for taking the time to meet earlier today.” Then, the official continued to discuss how Facebook is taking even more steps to censor freedom of speech.
Further communications show that Facebook is “increasing the strength of our demotions for COVID and vaccine-related content that third party fact checkers rate as ‘Partly False’ or ‘Missing Context.’ That content will now be demoted at the same strength that we demote any content on our platform rated ‘False.’”
Twitter scheduled a meeting to debrief top White House Officials on “vaccine misinformation.”
There are several instances where Facebook wouldn’t proceed with censoring freedom of speech on their platform until they had input, or a “debunking” from the CDC. Twitter followed the same course in at least one email.
The CDC also proposed a monthly debunking meeting with Facebook to help them censor free speech as well as regular “Be on the Lookout” calls with major social media outlets.
A White House official was even concerned about parody Fauci accounts and coordinated with Facebook to take them down.
As some of you know, I finally had to take my Tom Woods Show Elite group off Facebook because the suppression of dissident opinion and the laughable “fact-checking” got to be too much. Eventually, Facebook told me I would have to personally review and approve every single post to the group myself — an impossible task for a group as robust as mine.
So we moved to a no-censorship platform, where we’ve been happy as clams ever since.
The smart, fearless, informed people inside my Elite group won’t tell you to eat bugs or transition your 8-year-old, or want to deprive you of reliable energy. You get enough of that in normal life.
Instead of that, I offer you the Tom Woods Show Elite.
Now I shall officially warn you: it costs the princely sum of $5 per month to be in the group.
But you know what? That $5 keeps the crazies away, for whatever reason.
