Feds Pushed Censorship Tools to Big Tech - According To States’ Lawsuit

 April 12, 2023

According to disclosures brought about by Missouri and Louisiana’s tech First Amendment lawsuit, against the federal government, the U.S. State Department actively marketed government-funded online censorship tools, to Big Tech companies. Reportedly, an official at the State Department’s Global Engagement Center, or GEC, sent an email to the popular business networking platform LinkedIn that advertised the so-called “disinfo cloud,” a GEC-funded project that sought to identify “disinformation” online. According to a report by the Federalist, GEC senior advisor Samaruddin Stewart first wrote to LinkedIn in February 2020. See -

At that time he requested a meeting, saying he had been-

 “tasked with building relationships with technology companies,” [and that he was reaching out to companies interested in] “countering disinformation.”

Then following the meeting, in another email to LinkedIn, Stewart advertised the GEC’s censorship tool, as a “one-stop shop” for a tech company to “identify and then test tools that counter propaganda and disinformation.” stating-

“I’ll send information… about gaining access to Disinfo Cloud — which is a GEC funded platform that offers stakeholders an opportunity to discover companies, technology, and tools that can assist with identifying, understanding, and addressing disinformation,”

The GEC, in addition to funding the Disinfo Cloud, helped fund the Global Disinformation Index. The GDI, is an organization that financially attacked conservative media, by spreading smear to advertisers, in an attempt to blacklist them as spreaders of misinformation,

This information, brought by state attorney general Jeff Landry of Louisiana, and former Missouri attorney general Eric Schmit, is just the latest explosive revelation brought about by their lawsuit. Eric Schmit is now a sitting U.S. Senator.

According to the lawsuit, it alleges that the Biden Administration infringed on the First Amendment, by colluding with tech companies to censor Americans. The suit also has revealed more information about that collusion, as time has gone on. The revelations of the level Federal government involvement is shocking. See the link to the article above.

This administration has much to answer for. It is hard to believe that this President is aware of all that is leaking from the cracks, if not just literally pouring out from his White House – over the deceit that has been waged against the American people, much less at their expense.

It is why they want or need him to run again in 2024 – so that the radical left who really run the White House, can continue their divisive plan to reform America as a socialist, global democracy. America needs to wake up to being duped by this inwardly secretive cancer that needs cut out. If America is to survive, the time to stand firm on our founding principles - is NOW.

“When we stand up for what we believe in—for what’s right—there is always a chance that we risk the very things we fight for: our safety, our lives, our freedom. But if we stand down, the risk is definite.”
