Joe Biden is at it again.
The rogue and lawless president committed yet another illegal act.
And this smoking gun turned up in court that caught Joe Biden red-handed breaking the law.
On July 16, 2021, press secretary Jen Psaki admitted in public that the administration was working with social media companies – specifically Facebook – to ban the members of an enemies list the administration developed.
“So we’re regularly making sure social media platforms are aware of the latest narratives, dangerous to public health that we and many other Americans are seeing across all of social and traditional media. And we work to engage with them to better understand the enforcement of social media platform policies,” Psaki said during that press briefing.
Biden demanded social media ban critics of his administration’s mask and vaccine mandates for spreading so-called “misinformation.”
Social media companies dutifully obeyed because they are 1) ideological allies of the socialist Biden administration and 2) living in fear of increased government regulation should they not obey.
Twitter followed through and banned journalist Alex Berenson among others for telling the truth that masks and vaccines did not work to slow the spread of COVID.
Republican Attorneys General Eric Schmitt and Jeff Landry of Missouri and Louisiana sued the Biden administration arguing federal agencies illegally pressured social media companies to censor conservative speech.
Schmitt and Landry’s lawsuit struck gold in the discovery process.
The Biden administration turned over documents detailing how government officials conducted weekly and/or monthly conference calls with social media executives to issue orders on which accounts the government wanted to see censored.

“I know our teams met today to better understand the scope of what the White House expects from us on misinformation going forward,” one of the emails read. “In our previous conversations I’ve appreciated the way you and your team have approached our engagement, and we have worked hard to meet the moment — we’ve dedicated enormous time and resources to fighting this pandemic and consider ourselves partners in fighting the same battle.”
Attorneys General Landry and Schmitt crowed about their uncovering illegal government censorship of political speech and vowed to file motions to gain access to more documents exposing the depths of the Biden administration’s unconstitutional scheme to suppress social media accounts that posted the truth about the failures of masks and vaccines.
“The limited discovery produced so far provides a tantalizing snapshot into a massive, sprawling federal ‘Censorship Enterprise,’ which includes dozens of federal officials across at least eleven federal agencies and components identified so far,” Schmitt and Landry declared. “[These officials] communicate with social-media platforms about misinformation, disinformation, and the suppression of private speech on social media—all with the intent and effect of pressuring social-media platforms to censor and suppress private speech that federal officials disfavor.”
For years liberals defended social media censorship of conservatives arguing that private companies were free to take down whatever content they wished.
Woke corporations carrying out the political agenda of the left was the end run around the Constitution that Democrats discovered to crush conservatives without any legal recourse.
But the Supreme Court has long held that if a private company acts on orders of the government, it is now an agent of the government and they now operate under the constraint of the Bill of Rights.
That means if the Biden administration ordered Facebook to ban accounts on Joe Biden’s enemies list and Facebook followed through then Facebook violated the First Amendment.
Schmitt and Landry’s lawsuit is the first successful legal salvo against the left’s online censorship regime.
And Schmitt and Landry are determined to shine a light on the scope of the Biden administration’s lawless Soviet-style censorship.
