It looks like the cards are beginning to fall, and the truth is finally coming to light. Officials in the states of Missouri and Louisiana have been granted permission by a federal court judge to obtain information and documents from top-ranking officials within the Biden Administration that pertain to alleged collusion with social media platforms to suppress free speech, which may have had a hand in determining the outcome of the 2020 election. The last time I checked, that was considered election interference.



Terry Doughty, a Trump-appointed judge in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana, has ruled in favor of the request for the discovery process to move forward. This ruling will open the door of discovery for the attorneys general to collect documents from top-ranking Biden administration officials and social media bullies.

Judge Terry Doughty provided a timeline in which federal officials and social media platforms must hand over documents.

That ruling was issued on July 12.

Federal officials and social media platforms must also hand over their requested documents and answer questions from officials from Missouri and Louisiana within the next 30 days, according to the judge’s ruling.

The ruling comes after the attorneys general of Louisiana and Missouri filed a lawsuit in May stating that the Biden administration “colluded with and/or coerced social media companies to suppress disfavored speakers, viewpoints, and content on social media platforms by labeling the content ‘disinformation,’ ‘misinformation,’ and ‘malinformation.’”

The social media giants being named in the lawsuit are Meta, Twitter, and YouTube, which were announced by the attorneys general in the two states in May.

The lawsuit also goes on to claim that President Joe Biden himself, along with other top-ranking government officials, worked with the social media platforms to make sure certain information was censored and suppressed and that free speech, including “truthful information” about the origins of COVID-19, the effectiveness of masks, election integrity, and the security of voting by mail, as well as the ongoing Hunter Biden laptop scandal was kept from the American public at large who use these social media platforms. Anyone who spoke the truth or “violated” the algorithms was banned, shadow banned, or censored from the platforms; some people have even had their profiles taken down.

Among the many defendants cited in the lawsuit, a few of the big names include Joe Biden, former press secretary Jen Psaki, chief medical adviser to the president and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci, former Disinformation Governance Board executive director Nina Jankowicz, Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, and several others.

The lawsuit specifically accuses Joe Biden officials of “pressuring and colluding with social media giants Meta, Twitter, and YouTube to censor free speech in the name of combating so-called ‘disinformation’ and ‘misinformation,’ which led to the suppression and censorship of truthful information on several topics, including COVID-19.” Information we’ve known all along could have saved countless human lives.

The complaint also goes as far as alleging that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Disinformation Governance Board was created “to induce, label, and pressure the censorship of disfavored content, viewpoints, and speakers on social media platforms.”

In announcing the court’s decision to grant the attorneys general’s request, Eric Schmitt, the attorney general for the state of Missouri, said on Twitter,” No one has had the chance to look under the hood before – now we do.”
