The fight against liberty

Now more than any time in the history of the United States the citizens’ rights to freedom of religion and speech are not only under attack, but in danger. The Founding Fathers knew that unless there was freedom of religion, freedom of speech and freedom to peaceably assemble that a nation falls into tyranny. In most every instance when a dictator seizes power, these freedoms are revoked. Today in America, the government, the legacy news media and powerful corporations are working together to take these rights away from YOU. An example of people who are standing up to this attack on your rights is the lawsuit by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry.

Filed May 5 in the US District Court in Louisiana, the 86-page report accuses top government officials of conspiring to suppress information with social media giants Meta, Twitter and YouTube “under the guise of combating misinformation.” According to the New York Post and Fox News, the suit accuses the federal government of violating free speech rights by threatening big tech companies into silencing conservative viewpoints. It names former Biden Press Secretary Jen Psaki, COVID Czar Anthony Fauci, and Nina Jankowicz, the head of the Department of Homeland Security’s new Disinformation Governance Board.

The filing claims: “Having threatened and cajoled social-media platforms for years to censor viewpoints and speakers disfavored by the Left, senior government officials in the Executive Branch have moved into a phase of open collusion with social media companies to suppress disfavored speakers, viewpoints, and content on social-media platforms under the Orwellian guise of halting so-called ‘disinformation.’ ‘misinformation,’ and  ‘malinformation’…Labeling disfavored speech ‘misinformation’ or ‘disinformation’ does not strip it of First Amendment Protection … with the common understanding that some false statements are inevitable if there is to be an open and vigorous expression of views in public and private conversation … the First Amendment seeks to guarantee.”

The list of examples is extensive—Suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story, the handling of COVID, election security issues among them. Add to that the Russian collusion story, the withholding of military aid to Ukraine story, and the list goes on and on. Now, the replacement for Psaki, who is leaving the White House pre-arranging a job with NBC, is openly gay Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, who “wife” is CNN national correspondent Suzanne Malveaux. Cozy, no? In April, Jankowicz told NPR, “I shudder to think about if free speech absolutists were taking over more platforms, what that would look like for the marginalized communities all around the world.” Jankowicz apparently believes free speech does no apply to criticism of LGBTQ+ grooming of minor children in schools, for example.

Another example of marginalizing dissent is Joe Biden attacking the Make America Great Again movement, saying “this MAGA crowd is really the most extreme political organization that’s existed in American history–in recent American history.” He sees people who stand against his politics as extreme and he has taken steps to shut them down. The leftists also encouraged protesters to harass Supreme Court Justices at their homes, and to become violent against pro-life demonstrators. This is all the makings of a tyrannical environment. Galatians 5:1 exhorts, “Stand fast therefore in the Liberty by which Christ made you free and be not again entangled in the yoke of bondage.” We need to stand against those who would lead us into the chainwork of satan. What we face today is a real and present threat to this and future generations.
