Fed. Court Ruling in Biden v. Missouri Shuts Down Gov’t Social-Media Censorship

White House engaged in 'the most massive attack against free speech in United States’ history...'

(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that President Joe Biden and his administration are not permitted under the law to censor the social media accounts of private citizens and entities, The Federalist reported.

In Missouri v. Biden, the Fifth Ciruit’s Terry A. Doughty said that White House officials and officials from the FBI and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had engaged themselves in “the most massive attack against free speech in United States’ history.”

According to Doughty, officials colluded with social media companies to silence Americans who did not adequately affirm the regime’s views of both the 2020 election, and also the COVID vaccine mandates.

The organizations deemed it necessary and proper to combat the threatening “mis-, dis-, and mal-information” with force.

As a result, a district court initially ruled that freedom of speech could not be restricted by the aforementioned entities, issuing a wide-ranging preliminary injunction that prohibited federal authorities from colluding with social-media platforms in the name of censorship.

After the district court’s ruling, the feds appealed to the 5th Circuit, arguing that government itself was being censored by the court’s own ruling.

Fortunately for liberty-loving Americans, the 5th Circuit upheld the lower court’s opinion. And though the opinion initially nixed one essential aspect of the lower court’s opinion–the injunciton against the Department of Homeland Security sub-agency, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency–after the plaintiff’s petition, the CISA injunction was reinstated.

CISA had proved previously to be the most essential part of the federal censorship regime, particularly in the case of COVID orthodoxy.

Jen Easterly, CISA’s current director, feels responsible for defending not only our physical and digital infrastructure, but also our “our cognitive infrastructure.”

But now, with its censorship power stripped by the courts, the left will have to search for new methods of censoring conservative opinions.
