Big Tech Doc Dump Proves Government Deliberately Withheld Documents from Plaintiffs!
If this were a Star Wars spinoff, we’d call it “Free-Speech Wars II: The Good Guys Strike Back.”
BIG news in the Missouri v. Biden federal free-speech lawsuit today.
The Gateway Pundit previously reported in May that Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, along with Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry, filed a lawsuit (Missouri v. Biden) against the Biden Administration, including Biden himself, Anthony Fauci, the Department of Homeland Security and nearly a dozen federal agencies and Secretaries.
The suit alleges a massive coordinated effort by the Deep State (permanent administrative state) to work with Big Tech to censor and manipulate Americans – from average citizens to news outlets – on issues including the Hunter Biden Laptop from Hell, 2020 Election Integrity, COVID-19 origin and extent skepticism, COVID-19 vaccine skepticism, among other issues.
Here’s a copy of the First Amended Complaint:
In June, The Gateway Pundit began assisting Missouri AG Schmitt’s team and providing critical evidence of Facebook and Twitter censorship of the Gateway Pundit on all of these issues.
This evidence was submitted to the Louisiana Federal Court. See it here:
The case reached a CRUCIAL turning point in July, when AG Schmitt and his team won a huge victory.
They persuaded the federal judge to grant them limited discovery (investigatory powers) BEFORE the Court would decide the government defendants’ collective motion to dismiss this case.
The Gateway Pundit wrote about it here:
This allowed AG Schmitt to compel the government AND FACEBOOK AND TWITTER and a few other social media platforms to turn over documents and communications exchanged between the government and the social media platforms, in which censorship was discussed.
In August, we reported that TGP’s Jim Hoft himself became the lead non-governmental plaintiff in the lawsuit against the government.
Since then, AG Schmitt’s team has been engaged in a slug-fest with the government and Big Tech to turn over the demanded documents.
Neither the government nor Big Tech wants to disclose the damning evidence against them and they’ve fought like hell to stop the disclosure.
As we reported, the turning point came just days ago when Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg admitted in a Joe Rogan interview that Facebook algorithmically censored the Hunter Biden Laptop for 7 days following a request from the FBI to censor election “misinformation.”
Zuckerberg’s admission came after the Missouri v. Biden lawsuit forced Facebook to turn over documents – he was going to end up admitting it anyway.
It constituted a turning point in the battle for the preservation of the First Amendment and Free Speech in America. His admission proved that the US Government and Big Tech coordinated to censor speech.
Previously, the government’s lawyers kept trying to portray all of this as a conspiracy theory.
NOPE. NOW, IT’S A CONSPIRACY FACT.
TODAY we report that the Missouri Attorney General’s Office caught the Biden Administration red-handed.
After forcing Twitter and Facebook to unload a massive trove of documents, Schmitt’s Office was able to uncover two (2) explosive facts:
FIRST, that the Biden Administration withheld enormous amounts of evidence of the censorship from the materials they were supposed to produce in discovery. This is a big no-no. And
SECOND, that the US Government’s “Censorship Enterprise” was and is a MASSIVE EFFORT ACROSS SCORES OF FEDERAL AGENCIES to coordinate with Big Tech to CENSOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND CONTROL THEIR THOUGHTS AND BELIEFS.
TENS OF THOUSANDS of records including consistent and ongoing communications between the Big Tech and (for example) DHS, CDC, NIAID, the Census Bureau, the US Surgeon General, the State Department, the Treasury, the FBI, the US ELECTION ASSISTANCE COMMISSION (!!!), and on and on and on.
These documents prove that Big Tech views itself as an arm of the federal government – and the US Government views it the same way.
We now have irrefutable proof that Big Tech censored and continues to censor Americans to force-feed the nation with US Government PROPAGANDA. It’s all there in black and white.
Millions of Americans have been censored because their speech didn’t match the US Government’s preferred narrative.
This is the definition of Fascism.
Because he caught them withholding evidence, MO AG Schmitt is now asking the Court to force the government to turn over more records which they previously said didn’t exist. You can see the MO and LA Attorneys General’s arguments and those of the Government (arguing against disclosure), here. See documents below:
This is a great day for free speech on the future freedom of America!
