Federal officials across at least 11 different federal agencies are complicit in colluding with the tech giants against online free speech, says Dr. Aaron Kheriaty, M.D., a fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center and chief of ethics at The Unity Project.
In a lengthy piece he published on his “Human Flourishing” Substack, Kheriarty explains that the details of a joint statement on discovery disputes a legal brief that his group released in the case of Missouri v. Brandon. That statement exposes the Brandon regime as an enemy of the United States Constitution – and in this case specifically, an enemy of the First Amendment.
Brandon regime criminals secretly communicated with the likes of Facebook and Twitter to censor and suppress private speech that they found upsetting. Hundreds of pages of emails and other internal communications between the federal government and Big Tech tell the story that the corporate-controlled media will not touch with a 10-foot pole.
Third-party subpoenas were served to five major social media platforms as part of the case. These platforms include Twitter, Facebook and Instagram (both owned by Meta), YouTube, and LinkedIn. (Related: Big Government and Big Tech colluded to rig the 2020 election.)
Brandon regime says collusion between federal government and Big Tech spans “across the federal enterprise” – court documents call it a “Censorship Enterprise”
According to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Sec. Alejandro Mayorkas, the Brandon regime’s actions to control what gets shared across social media are monumental, extending far beyond just one federal agency.
In a statement, Mayorkas indicated that the federal government’s involvement is occurring “across the federal enterprise,” meaning just about everyone is involved with waging war on free speech.
“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, who 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,” reads the latest legal filing from Kheriaty and his team.
“The discovery provided so far demonstrates that this Censorship Enterprise is extremely broad, including officials in the White House, HHS, DHS, CISA [Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency], the CDC, NIAID, and the Office of the Surgeon General; and evidently other agencies as well, such as the Census Bureau, the FDA, the FBI, the State Department, the Treasury Department, and the U.S. Election Assistance Commission. And it rises to the highest levels of the U.S. Government, including numerous White House officials.”
Kheriaty and his team say that much more discovery is needed to really uncover the full scope of the federal government’s Censorship Enterprise, which is likely much bigger and more far-reaching than anyone realizes.
What the case is seeking most pertinently are the identities of every single person involved so they can all be pursued and charged. We need names, the court documents state, in order to bring justice upon everyone involved in the criminal racket.
As you might expect, the federal government is refusing to name names. Those involved are trying to scurry like cockroaches, but the case is still moving forward and the hope is that the full truth will eventually be revealed despite the continued stonewalling.
“I can say with all soberness and circumspection (and you, kind readers, will correct me if I am wrong here): this evidence suggests we are uncovering the most serious, coordinated, and large-scale violation of First Amendment free speech rights by the federal government’s executive branch in U.S. history,” Kheriaty writes.
