Appeals Court Deals Further Blow To Joe Biden’s Censorship Scheming

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday dealt a further blow to Joe Biden’s scheming to coordinate with social media companies to censor the comments and ideas of Americans who don’t agree with his agenda.

Officials with the New Civil Liberties Alliance revealed that the appeals court granted their petition for a panel rehearing and added the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency to the preliminary injunction in Missouri v. Biden.

That lawsuit drew an original trial court ruling that banned multiple federal arms from working with social media companies to censor Americans. Constitutionally, the government cannot censor speech, but the scheme apparently involved Biden officials telling private organizations to lobby social media for the same result.

That’s been a common practice in the Biden administration, with targets including messages that questioned the integrity of the 2020 election, COVID mandates and much, much more.

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

Other agencies already barred from the censorship campaigns include the White House, the Surgeon General’s office, CDC and FBI.

“The Fifth Circuit’s new action expands upon its September 8 ruling that upheld the most important portions of U.S. District Judge Terry Doughty’s July 4 preliminary injunction order, prohibiting those officials from pressuring social media companies to suppress First Amendment-protected speech,” the organization reported.

The plaintiffs, including Drs. Bhattacharya, Kulldorff and Kheriaty, and Ms. Hines, had been “blacklisted, shadow-banned, de-boosted, throttled, and censored” on social media as part of the Biden Administration’s years-long censorship campaign.

The NCLA reported, “The Fifth Circuit recognized that the Plaintiffs did ‘not challenge the social-media platforms’ content-moderation policies,’ instead challenging the government’s unlawful efforts to influence “enforcement of those policies.” The government gravely harmed the ability of NCLA’s clients to convey their views to the public, and it deprived Americans of their right to hear opinions that differ from the government’s. Judge Doughty strikingly described the Administration’s conduct as ‘arguably the most massive attack against free speech in United States history’ and ‘akin to an Orwellian Ministry of Truth.’”

The court found: “CISA—working in close connection with the FBI—held regular industry meetings with the platforms concerning their moderation policies, pushing them to adopt CISA’s proposed practices for addressing ‘mis-, dis-, and mal-information.’”

It found CISA acted “as an intermediary for third parties by forwarding flagged content.”

The decision reversed the 5th Circuit’s earlier finding that CISA was just “information sharing.”

“NCLA is pleased the Fifth Circuit has recognized that it erred in letting CISA—one of the worst violators of Americans’ First Amendment rights—off the hook, and we’re glad that CISA is now included in the injunction prohibiting censorship. We look forward to vindicating our clients’ rights in the Supreme Court, which we are confident will also recognize the egregious and intolerable nature of the government’s conduct,” said Jenin Younes, litigation counsel for NCLA.

The case is expected to move to the Supreme Court.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO WND READERS: Today’s ruling elites champion policies every previous generation of Americans would have regarded as outright evil. At the top of that list would be the supremely radioactive issue – illuminated by the hit summer film “Sound of Freedom” – of the widespread trafficking and sexual slavery of children, as well as the shocking prevalence of pedophiles in the United States of America. Indeed, the U.S. is the largest market for child sexual abuse in the world.

According to Tim Ballard, who has led many missions rescuing sex-trafficked children around the world, the Biden administration actually ENABLES AND PROMOTES the trafficking and sexual slavery of children with its horrendous border policies, its push for early sexualization of children, championing children’s “right to consent” on everything including mutilating transgender surgeries, and so on.

“Pedophiles are sitting back right now,” says Ballard, “and going, ‘We’ve been pushing this agenda for decades, and now we don’t have to push any more, because the left is taking care of it for us’ – IN AMERICA!”

Ballard’s concerns are confirmed by Tara Lee Rodas, a Health and Human Services whistleblower who recently testified before Congress that under Joe Biden, “THE U.S. GOVERNMENT HAS BECOME THE MIDDLEMAN IN A LARGE-SCALE, MULTI-BILLION-DOLLAR CHILD TRAFFICKING OPERATION.”

But that’s just the beginning. The whole, secret criminal mega-enterprise of child sex trafficking and the global elites’ affinity for pedophilia is exposed as never before in the August issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, in a groundbreaking issue titled “THE NEW AMERICAN SLAVE TRADE: How the Biden regime enables and promotes child sex trafficking in the U.S.A.” WHISTLEBLOWER is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
