Listen up folks, this should be the biggest story in America right now.
Free speech is the cornerstone of America and the only thing keeping the world going—I am not exaggerating about that. Without the First Amendment, humanity doesn’t stand a chance.
Democrats and their progressive allies are among the most vociferous enemies of free speech—the Covid plandemic and the ensuing chaos forever cemented that this is who they are.
During the height of the Covid hysteria, the Biden administration, in conjunction with the CDC, FDA, big tech, and pharmaceutical corporations conspired to censor social media for ‘misinformation’ regarding the man-made virus.
When their collusion was finally outed, litigation was filed against the Biden administration, yet the regime doubled down in an effort to continue censoring the American public.
Missouri V Biden was filed by former Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, suing the Biden administration for its censorship efforts.
On July 4, 2023, a Federal Judge ruled against the Biden administration, saying that their collusion was a clear breach of the First Amendment rights of Americans.
One would have thought this would stop the Biden administration, but no! They filed for appeal and continued to push the issue. Now, the case is headed to the Supreme Court.
Benny Johnson provided the update on the court case and even provided a previous conversation he had with Missouri Senator Eric Schmitt, who filed the case when he was Missouri’s Attorney general.

“The nation’s highest court will hear the most important free speech case in American history. I’m proud to have filed this case when I was AG, and will always defend free speech,” Schmitt said.

Even far-left Bill Maher has called the Biden regime’s censorship problematic, according to Breitbart:
“That issue…censoring speech, that is dangerous. Because, there was just a case, Missouri v. Biden, and this was about COVID ‘misinformation,’ but a lot of the misinformation, it turns out, was coming from the other side.
But you couldn’t say it. That’s what this case was about.”
Benjamin Weingarten explained: “It will take up questions regarding standing; whether the feds — in coercing and colluding with the social media companies to suppress Wrongthink — violated the First Amendment; and on the legitimacy/scope of the preliminary injunction freezing fed-led speech policing.”

Missouri’s current Attorney General, Andrew Bailey, had this to say: “We look forward to dismantling Joe Biden’s vast censorship enterprise at the nation’s highest court.”

Earlier this year, PBS reported:
U.S. District Judge Terry Doughty of Louisiana granted the injunction in response to a 2022 lawsuit brought by attorneys general in Louisiana and Missouri.
Their lawsuit alleged that the federal government overstepped in its efforts to convince social media companies to address postings that could result in vaccine hesitancy during the COVID-19 pandemic or affect elections.
Doughty cited “substantial evidence” of a far-reaching censorship campaign.
