On Thursday, July 15, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki gleefully informed sycophants at her “press briefing” that the Biden Administration is “working with” Facebook to censor posts that, as she says, spread “disinformation.”
Which is the latest admission that the US government is engaging in fascist speech policing, on top of all the other kinds of fascism DC has instituted during the so-called “pandemic” -- and for decades prior – as the feds engage in bailouts, “public-private partnerships,” and overt control over what is supposed to be a freedom-based economy.
In a Tweet The Daily Caller published shortly after Psaki’s meeting, viewers can see video of her openly admitting the fascist speech policing.
We’re flagging problematic posts for Facebook that spread disinformation…

As bad as it would be, this is not solely about silencing posts pertaining to COVID19 jabs. It’s about anything the politicians in power deem “misinformation.”
And, curiously, Antifa is silent.
As Mary Margaret Olohan reports for The Daily Caller:
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Thursday that the White House is not only working with Facebook to flag disinformation on vaccines — it’s also asking Facebook to share data on the reach and engagement of posts deemed disinformation.
So, if you happen to post data that runs contrary to the political orthodoxy on things like, oh, the boogey man of “Anthropogenic Climate Change” – you and your posts might be silenced by this government-corporation team.
Are you interested in sharing concerns about sketchy voting procedures?
Anything factual that the Regime does not like is now in danger.
And, as it was when the NSA was shown to have spied on millions of cell phone users in a massive breach of the Fourth Amendment, which subsequently saw the feds “work with” cell carriers to get them to voluntarily turn over data, this move skirts the First Amendment by “working with” Facebook.
Senior Biden administration staff and members of the COVID-19 team are targeting misinformation, specifically on coronavirus vaccines and the pandemic, by keeping ‘in regular touch’ with social media platforms, Psaki said Thursday.
That’s “misinformation” as defined by the Regime, which, like all political regimes, has a powerful interest in suppressing real, valid information that questions the government position on myriad issues.
Which likely includes the text of the US Constitution, since most of what the feds do is flagrantly, provably, unconstitutional.
But, not only are the feds citing posts and flagging them to Facebook for removal, and not only are the feds claiming the power to define “truth,” they have bigger goals than its immediate fascist “work" with Facebook to silence dissent. They want to TRACK those who SEE the verboten posts. Writes Olohan:
’Facebook should provide, publicly and transparently, data on the reach of COVID-19 vaccine misinformation, not just engagement, but the reach of the misinformation and the audience that it’s reaching,’ Psaki said. ‘That will help us ensure we’re getting accurate information to people. This should be provided not just to researchers but to the public so that the public knows and understands what is accurate and inaccurate.’
So, the government will seize your taxes, then fund bureaucrats to not only tell you what is “accurate,” the government – including Psaki, whose salary you also fund – will crush anything it says is inaccurate.
Why can’t “the public” be free figure out what is “accurate” on its own?
And if private citizens are too thick to do so, how can they possess the glorious insight to vote for other fallible humans who will run the machine of force called the government, which, in turn, will employ other fallible people to determine “truth”?
One wonders if Paski ever took a logic class, or is familiar with the term Q.E.D.
And one wonders if any of the censorship cheerleaders at CNN, ABC, Google, or other media powerhouses might put down their pom-poms long enough to let viewers know that this new Biden fascism is just one portion of a much larger, long-term US fascism problem.
This new federal “work with Facebook” is a form of what was released unto the US because of a bill proposed in March, 2016.
It was called the “Portman-Murphy Countering Disinformation and Foreign Propaganda Act”, was intentionally bolstered by the insane “widespread Russian meddling” narrative of that summer and fall (after the DNC emails were released via what NSA expert William Binney notes was an INTERNAL leak, not Russian hacking), and it was a fascist propaganda push that Obama signed in December of that year.

For two years, the Portman-Murphy statute (Portman is Rob Portman, a RINO Senator from Ohio and Murphy is Chris Murphy, a leftist Dem from Connecticut) literally saw the feds create an office called the “Global Engagement Center” in THE PENTAGON that paid “news” organizations a total of $150 million to push stories the feds wanted pushed.
Donald Trump did not renew the program.
But, guess what…?
In June, Portman and Murphy saw their US propaganda idea reinstituted. It passed as part of the also-unconstitutional and darkly ironic “Innovation and Competition Act” (S. 1260), and will shovel $150 million to government-selected, “truth-determining,” “news” outlets and social media orgs that push government narratives over the next year.
Have you heard your neighbors discussing this? Your co-workers?
Has the Anti-Defamation League likened this to Nazi-style fascist activity?
But, as we remember Psaki’s statement about the federal “partnership” with Facebook to not only censor “unwanted” information, but to track those who see it, we can alert people to the larger issue of Portman-Murphy, and remind our friends of the fact that fascism is the “in name only” ownership of private business that actually is steered by politicians. It is the combination of state and corporate power.
Which is precisely what Psaki heralded Thursday and precisely what RINO Portman and socialist Murphy got passed in June.
It might be wise to warn others about what is happening, while we can.
