The Sixth Amendment guarantees us a speedy trial. The process of those detained on January 6th has been anything but speedy. It has been impeded by disingenuous politics from the Left.
The information we see coming out from defense teams in the trials of these people indicate that the federal government and law enforcement from the District of Columbia were integral in goading the people into violent and illegal action.
Evidence has now been exposed that shows undercover and plain clothed police officers from both the DC Metro and the Capitol Hill Police – as well as federal agents – were amongst the protesters, some of them literally pushing people towards the doors of the Capitol Building.
Many of us have seen video already of Capitol Hill police officers showing people the way up the stairs inside the Capitol Building.
And then there is the joke of a January 6th committee that was put together – that was gerrymandered – by Nancy Pelosi that withheld all of the video evidence from that day. There shouldn’t be anything held back from that day as far as video evidence. It should all be open for the public to see.
Now that Kevin McCarthy has given Tucker Carlson complete access to that video archive I am sure we are going to see more things that really piss us off!
The bottom line here is that there were legitimate objections to some of the Electors that were being seated, objections that needed to go through a legal procedure in the Electoral College. That chaos stopped those objections.
So, if there was any gerrymandering of the election in 2020 – besides the fact that the Judicial Branch in the Supreme Court failed to act on a question of constitutionality where the changing of election law was concerned in several States – it happened with the Democrats manufacturing, fomenting, and encouraging chaos on Capitol Hill that stopped those objections to those electors being seated.
It’s all got to come out.
Everybody knows something wasn’t right with the election. I’m not going as far as to support Donald Trump’s “It was stolen,” but there were things that happened during that election that should never happen again.
Then, this morning’s segment on Talkback with Chuck Wilder…
Let’s look back and have a recall moment, shall we?
October 26, 2020 it was reported that former VP Joe Biden snapped at Andy Mehalshickthe, the reporter who dared to ask him about his son Hunter and Joe Biden lied
Biden did not let reporter Andy Mehalshick get through his question before snapping during an event on Saturday.
“Questions and controversy continue today about Hunter Biden, your son,” Mehalshick began.
“There is no controversy,” he interjected. “That’s all a lie.”
Interviewer: “Questions and controversy continue today about Hunter Biden, your son-“
Biden: “There is no controversy about my son. That’s a hell of a lie. That’s a flat lie because the president has nothing to run on… it’s classic Trump.” pic.twitter.com/MQQGvddrHO — Andrew Solender (@AndrewSolez
— Andrew Solender (@AndrewSolez
“It’s a flat lie because the president has nothing else to run on.” Biden said. ( He was accusing President Trump at the time of lying about his son)
Biden does not want you to believe your own eyes.
Of course, Biden is the one who is lying, as leaked emails have revealed deep levels of corruption and homemade porn of his son smoking crack with prostitutes is all over the internet.butthere’s this…
Hunter Biden sent the following text to a family friend where he shares that someone is accusing him of being sexually inappropriate around her daughter. This is why Hunter claims he is not allowed to be alone with that person:
In another text message from Hunter to a family friend, Hunter shares that his mother, Jill Biden, propagates the claims that Hunter is sexually inappropriate around the children and VP Joe Biden is aware as well:
In a text message sent to Hunter Biden from his Uncle Jim Biden, former Vice President Joe Biden’s brother, Uncle Jim shares that both he and former VP Joe Biden are upset with accusations of impropriety but they don’t believe them. Jim and Joe Biden want to discuss with Hunter so they can all get their stories straight:
In an email to colleague and fellow board member on Burisma, the now felon Devon Archer, Hunter explains how he is not allowed to be around a certain person without his father, Joe Biden, being there:
And a fifth text message shows Hunter explaining to a certain person that her mom told former VP Joe Biden that she would call the police if Hunter tried to see that person:
These texts paint a horrible picture of what is going on behind the scenes in the Biden family.
What the hell was going on in the Biden household? If a minor was involved, why did no one contact the police? Why was this hidden from the public? Was this because it would tarnish Joe’s political image? Most importantly, is the child safe now?
This report originally ran on October 26, 2020, on Gateway Pundit a week before the election. The tech giants censored it. The fake news mainstream media ignored it. Twitter deleted Joe Hoft’s account for posting reports like this from Hunter Biden’s laptop. In case you missed it, here it again – Reference: gatewaypundit.com
When Joe Biden isn’t making up stories and and calling them true, he’s lying about the truth… He is covering it up. He blames President Trump. He blames Russia or Putin or calling it Russian disinformation. Joe Biden has not one honest bone in his body! His son is just as messed up and corrupt as he is. I guess that Ole saying stands true… Children Live What They Learn! Hunter never had a chance with Joe Biden as his father.
LIFE’S A BEACH
Hunter Biden frolicks in the sea with wife & goes to church with father Joe on vacation as legal questions swirl
THE infamous laptop belonging to Hunter Biden that detailed his sordid drug-fuelled orgies and international business dealings has finally been confirmed to be his – after months of fence-sitting from the New York Times.
The laptop that has details about his controversial love life, battle with drugs, and business documents was the subject of a media storm back in 2020.
According to the NYT the emails obtained from a cache of files “that appears to have come from a laptop abandoned by Mr Biden in a Delaware repair shop” were “authenticated by people familiar with them and with the investigation.”
Hunter dropped off at the Delaware computer repair shop in 2019 but never picked it up.
The laptop was later handed over to the FBI by the shop’s owner.
When asked at the time about it he said: “I really don’t know what the answer is, that’s the truthful answer. I have no idea.”
Biden is alleged to have met with Ukrainian, Russian and Kazakhstani business associates of his son at a private dining room in the plush Cafe Milano on April 16, 2015.
One email suggested that on at least one occasion Hunter arranged a meeting between Joe Biden and Burisma boss Vadym Pozharskyi.
Burisma was paying Hunter just over $83,300 a month to be on its board at the time.
Other documents detailed payments from a company in China, and suggested some was intended for other Biden family members.
Hunter and Joe denied any impropriety.
The New York Times also reported that Hunter paid off a “significant tax liability” after he was probed by the FBI over alleged money laundering and his ties to China.
Hunter was under investigation over money laundering claims and foreign dealings.
In December 2020 he announced the US Attorney’s office in Delaware told his lawyers that his “tax affairs” would be subject to a probe.
Hunter sent school guidance counselor Hallie a picture of the drugs and box – a photo of which was obtained exclusively by The Sun – over and over again as he told her: “You just killed the last piece of me.”
Hallie admitted the box was hers but fired back by claiming the drugs were Hunter’s.
She wrote: “You have lost your mind. You really think that is not yours? That rock? F*** you Hunter. Get f****** out of my life.”
The fight in November 2018 came as Hunter’s relationship with his late brother Beau’s widow was falling apart.
The pair had gotten together after Beau’s death from brain cancer aged just 46 in 2015 and Hunter’s separation from his wife Kathleen Buhle five months later.
Two weeks after the gun incident, Hunter texted Hallie the pic of what appears to be a huge crack cocaine rock on top of the Hermès box.
The pic and text messages were found on a bombshell Apple iPhone backup found on Hunter’s infamous “laptop from hell.”
They were handed to The Sun by Marco Polo, an organization led by a former Trump White House staffer which is investigating the laptop.
In his texts, Hunter appears to claim that the box was found under Hallie’s bed and the crack rock was behind a picture of himself, his grandmother Jean Biden – Joe’s late mother, who the family referred to as Momom – and his brother Beau.
Hunter even threatened to show Hallie’s then 14-year-old daughter Natalie what he had found.
Alongside the picture, he wrote: “From beneath your mattress and behind picture of me momom and beau.
“Should I put them back and bring Natalie to see first hallie. You’re cruel but you’re also insanely myopic.
“Don’t tell me I put this between your mattress and out (put) this on the shelf.
“I will ruin you if you do.”
Hallie indignantly replied: “Are you trying to set me up? F*** you, I’m sober.
“Get the f*** out of my house forever hunter.
“Be out before I get home.
“And take your f****** s*** with you.”
She later added: “That box looks old and forgotten but that rock is not mine sitting in my bedroom!”
Hunter replied: “If you want it back I’ll leave it for you but please know this could kill me. Please.
“It wasn’t in your bedroom Hallie. I went to take the picture of momom and beau and it was sitting behind it.”
Hallie then told Hunter: “I’ve never gotten a rock.
“That rock is yours asshole. Yes the box is old.
“And the box is mine, forgotten about. I’m sure we’ll find your s*** years after if you ever stop.”
Messages the couple exchanged during the gun incident show how fraught their relationship had become.
After accusing her of being “totally irresponsible and unhinged” for taking his gun, Hallie replied: “I’m scared you would use it.
“I’m scared for your life hunt. I love you. I’m sorry.”
New evidence from the iPhone backup shows that Hunter’s chaotic lifestyle was not only concerning to Hallie during this period.
The conservative polling company’s survey found that 55% are “closely following” reporting on Hunter’s laptop, with 62% saying the president benefitted financially from his son’s business relationships in China and 44% saying it is “very likely”.
President Biden was also slammed by Republicans following claims that Hunter met with him at least 30 times at the White House or vice president’s residence, often after overseas business trips.
He told CBS This Morning: “I think people were confused by it.
“And I understand that. I mean, I really do.
“To me, it’s not something that is difficult to explain. Because it came out of a real overwhelming grief that we both shared. And we were together, and trying to do the right thing.
“And that grief turned into a hope for a love that maybe could replace what we lost.”
Hunter and Hallie are understood to have called it quits in April 2019, just five months after the drug box blow up and days after Joe announced his 2020 presidential run.
The former couple did not comment about their breakup at the time.
Experts have told The Sun that the compromising material found on Hunter’s iPhone backup could have been used for the purposes of blackmail.
Cyber security expert Campbell Murray, a former global head of cybersecurity for BlackBerry, said: “If a backup is decrypted and contains compromising, unsavory or even illegal material, the implication is that as the son of a sitting President, that is a huge amount of leverage over that individual.
“Anyone who obtained that material could say to them ‘I will show the world what you’ve been doing or what you’ve been storing on your phone’.
“If that material gets into the hands of any nation state actor, foreign intelligence service or anybody with a desire to create leverage against a political party or movement, that would be a huge card for them to play.”
The Sun has reached out to a representative for Hunter and to Hallie for comment.
Republicans took control of the US House in the midterm elections and now Republicans are going on offense against one of the most corrupt crime families in US history. House Republicans have been investigating the Biden Crime Family since at least as far back as 2020. With a little luck hopefully the truth will be completely exposed now that the Republican Party has a a little power! This nonsense has gone way to far!
Joe rBiden told reporters this week that an investigation into his family is “almost comedy.”. How arrogant can one be?
Unfortunately for Joe, the family crimes were all well documented on his son Hunter’s laptop that he left in a computer repair shot.
And the entire world now knows it.

Joe and Jill Biden Made More Money, Paid Less Tax in 2021 Than ‘20, Returns Show
President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden reported $610,702 in earnings and paid 24.6% in federal taxes last year, according to documents released by the White House Friday.
The first couple’s income was up slightly from the $607,336 they reported earning in 2020, but down significantly from 2019 when the Bidens earned almost $1 million, with large amounts from book sales and teaching positions.
The Bidens paid $150,439 in federal taxes and another $30,765 in their home state of Delaware, according to a copy of their joint return. Jill Biden also paid $2,721 in Virginia taxes. The federal total is down on the $157,414 tax bill the couple paid in 2020, while the couple’s federal rate is also lower than what they were taxed at for that year (25.9%). The average federal tax rate for Americans is about 14%.
The Bidens gave $17,394 in charitable donations in 2021, a little less than 3% of their income and just over half of the $30,704 they donated in 2020. The largest donation, of $5,000, went to the Beau Biden Foundation, named in honor of the president’s late son.
Between 2017 and 2019, in between his time as vice president and president, Biden earned more than $16.5 million, including large payouts for speaking at colleges and elsewhere. He earned almost $1 million from the University of Pennsylvania from 2017 to 2019, previous filings show.
The first couple’s total joint income for last year includes $378,333 of Joe Biden’s annual $400,000-a-year salary as commander in chief — prorated since he didn’t take office until Jan. 20, 2021. Jill Biden earned $67,116 teaching at Northern Virginia Community College.
The president also reported income from pensions and $61,995 from two so-called S corporations – CelticCapri Corp. and Giacoppa Corp. The S corporations comprised a majority of the Biden’s earnings between 2017 and 2019, the Federalist reported last week — which led to calls from some legal experts to call on the president to release corporate tax returns relating to the two.
Vice President Kamala Harris and her husband, attorney Douglas Emhoff, raked in more than $1.6 million for the year 2021 and paid a tax rate of 31.6%. Harris and Emoff paid $120,517 in California income tax and $2,044 in New York income tax, their return shows.
Emhoff also paid $54,441 in District of Columbia income taxes, according to the White House
Harris reported income from sales of her book “The Truths We Hold” and from the sale of a San Francisco property owned by the couple. They donated $22,100 for the year, including $5,000 each to Howard University and the University of Southern California — where Harris went to college and Emhoff attended law school, respectively.
“With this release, the President has shared a total of 24 years of tax returns with the American public, once again demonstrating his commitment to being transparent with the American people about the finances of the commander in chief,” the White House said in a statement.
A new study into 2020 election discrepancies in six battleground states claims that there were at least 250,000 “excess votes” for Joe Biden, and potentially many more.
The claim is made in a forthcoming peer-reviewed study conducted by economist and gun expert John Lott Jr. for the journal Public Choice. The study awaits final approval but it says that many as 368,000 excess votes in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin may have tipped the election to Joe Biden, according to Lott, who reported his findings at Real Clear Politics.
“Biden only carried these states – Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin – by a total of 313,253 votes. Excluding Michigan, the gap was 159,065.”
Lott insists that the point of his work “isn’t to contest the 2020 election,” but rather to point out “that we have a real problem that needs to be dealt with.”
“Americans must have confidence in future elections,” he says.
Lott also blames some Trump allies, like Sidney Powell, for discrediting valid concerns about the integrity of the 2020 election by promising to “Release the Kraken” and then providing no evidence.
Lott, however, argues that he has the receipts. He reviewed voter registration rolls, in-person vote counts, absentee voting, and provisional ballots in various counties where fraud allegedly took place and compared them to like counties where these metrics should have been similar. Instead, he found statistically improbable differences, suggesting that fraud may have occurred.
“In 2016, there was no unexplained gap in absentee ballot counts. But 2020 was a different story,” Lott explained. “Just in Fulton County, Georgia, my test yielded an unexplained 17,000 votes – 32% more than Biden’s margin over Trump in the entire state.”
Lott ran similar comparisons in counties in other states and found similar discrepancies.
“Republican-leaning swing state counties had higher turnouts relative to the 2016 election. Democratic-leaning counties had lower turnouts, except for the Democratic counties with alleged vote fraud, which had very high turnouts.”
Lott believes that his estimates actually “understate” the “true amount of fraud,” as he did not attempt to identify potential in-person fraud. Nevertheless, he acknowledges that it’s too late to resolve what happened in 2020, and that we need to look toward fixing the problems that make our elections susceptible to fraud.
“Vote fraud erodes trust in elections, and makes people less motivated to vote,” Lott said. “Compared to Europe and other developed countries, America is unique in its lax approach to vote fraud.”
“When all demographic and political groups in the U.S. support voter photo IDs and even 46% of Democrats believe that mail-in voting leads to cheating, ignoring Americans’ concerns won’t make the problem go away,” Lott said.
President Joe Biden expressed Monday his desire to lead a “new world order” during a conversation with business leaders, noting the coronavirus pandemic and the Russian invasion of Ukraine would help reset the status quo.
“My mother had an expression, ‘Out of everything terrible something good will come if you look hard enough for it,’” Biden recalled.
The president spoke about the current global climate during a speech with some of America’s top CEOs attending the Business Roundtable lobbying group’s quarterly meeting.
“I think this presents us with some significant opportunities to make some real changes,” he said.
Biden said the entire world was at an “inflection point” that he said historically occurs about every 3 to 4 generations during times of crisis.
The president recalled a comment from a military official in a recent meeting, who noted that 60 million people died globally between 1900 and 1946, allowing the United States to lead the world.
“Since then, we’ve established a liberal world order, and that hadn’t happened in a long while,” Biden said. “A lot of people dying but nowhere near the chaos.”
Biden explained he thought the world was going through a similar situation.
“Now is the time when things are shifting, there’s going to be a new world order out there, we’ve got to lead it, and we’ve got to unite the rest of the free world while doing it,” he concluded.
Kakistocracy: noun, government by the worst persons; a form of government in which the worst persons are in power.
The old saying goes that even a blind squirrel finds a nut occasionally. So you might think that during a 50-year political career, the odds would dictate that Joe Biden would, once in a blue moon, make a correct decision — just based on the odds. But you’d be mistaken. Biden has stumbled and bumbled from one disastrous decision to the next. Disastrous, that is, for America. Biden himself has prospered handsomely in spite of his glaring incompetence and corruption.
Biden’s long Senate career was based on being the credit card companies’ man in Washington. While crowing endlessly about the working class being “his people,” Biden sponsored bills allowing bank issuers to charge egregious interest rates and to make it harder for working men to escape the credit trap through bankruptcy.
When Biden chaired the Senate Judiciary Committee, he turned the confirmation of Clarence Thomas into a political smear campaign that descended into a degenerate three-ring circus. In his first campaign for president, he failed to garner a single percentage point before having to withdraw when confronted with his past lies and blatant plagiarism. He literally stole a speech detailing a British politician’s life story. He ran again in 2008 but again failed to reach even one percent of the vote.
By the time he ran for president again in 2020 he was a spent husk of his former corrupt and incompetent self, delivering asinine performances in the Iowa caucus and New Hampshire primary. When the Democrat establishment propped him up to once again stop Bernie Sanders, Biden was set up for the strangest presidential campaign in modern history. While Donald Trump barnstormed the nation with packed, enthusiastic rallies, Biden cowered in his basement, occasionally venturing out to speak with a few dozen voters sitting in circles drawn on the floor.
For his vice presidential pick, he chose — if you can believe it — an even more buffoonish candidate than himself.
Had it not been for Mark Zuckerberg buying and staffing government election offices in swing states, and the media and Big Tech’s censorship of the Biden family’s corruption, Biden would now be enjoying his dotage in Delaware, creeping on unsuspecting children with yarns of Corn Pop and South African arrests.
Instead, the man with one of the most astonishing records of abject failure in Washington was installed in the White House, and he has remained true to form. As one of a hundred senators and then as vice president, there was a limit to how much damage he could do. But as president, the shackles have been removed.
His first agenda item was to throttle our oil and gas sector, offshoring tens of thousands of good paying jobs to Russia and the Middle East — along with our energy independence. He threw open our southern border and encouraged virtually unlimited illegal immigration — during a global pandemic.
Biden’s “defund the police” rhetoric delivered us soaring violent crime in Democrat-run cities, while he sicced federal law enforcement on parents who object too strenuously to their children being indoctrinated with anti-White racism and LGBTQIA+ ideology.
It can truly be said that as president, Biden’s record of failure remains unblemished.
But now comes what may be the capstone on Biden’s long history of buffoonery and corruption. In Ukraine, we have an armed conflict that threatens to plunge the world into an economic depression and raises the specter of nuclear war. Not only did Biden set the stage for this calamity when, as vice president, he was in charge of Ukraine policy and led Kiev to believe that NATO membership was in Ukraine’s future, but on the eve of the Russian invasion, he refused to admit that it was not. Then Biden all but admitted to Vladimir Putin — on live TV, no less — that NATO would not defend Ukraine if Russia chose to invade.
In the aftermath of Russia’s invasion, Biden and his administration have crafted sanctions that seem almost designed to boomerang on America’s and Europe’s fragile post-pandemic economies, while forcing Russia into a deeper alliance with China.
With the U.S. over $31 trillion in debt, Biden seems totally oblivious to the perilous position of the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency and the consequences should that privileged position end.
Economists predict that food and gasoline will cost the average U.S. household an additional $3,000 this year, and inflation threatens to push millions of lower-middle income-earners into abject poverty.
And bumbling, corrupt Joe Biden isn’t yet halfway through his first — and please God, last — term.
66% of self-defined “swing” voters in competitive districts believe that “Democrats in Congress have taken things too far in their pandemic response.”.
👆This is exactly why Democrats are suddenly lifting restrictions👆
White and Hispanic voters were in equal agreement.
80% of these same swing voters believe that “Democrats in Congress support defunding the police and taking more cops off of the street.”
78% of these swing voters believe that “Democrats in Congress have created a border crisis that allows illegal immigrants to enter the country without repercussions and grants them tax-payer funded benefits once here.”
61% of these swing district voters believe that “Democrats in Congress are spending money out of control,”
“Democrats are teaching kids as young as five Critical Race Theory, which teaches that America is a racist country and that white people are racist.”
👉The poll was conducted from mid-January to early February, had approximately 1,000 respondents and a 3.1% margin of error.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is concerned that Republican attacks on the Democrats’ handling of the COVID-19 pandemic have “alarming credibility,” according to a slide deck obtained by SFGATE.
The DCCC, which is the main campaign arm for House Democrats and is currently chaired by New York Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, worked with outside consulting groups to conduct an online poll of voters in the 60 most competitive House districts for the upcoming 2022 midterms. The poll was conducted from mid-January to early February, had approximately 1,000 respondents and a 3.1% margin of error.
Findings from the poll were presented to DCCC officials Thursday morning. One slide in the presentation, which was shared with SFGATE by someone who attended the presentation and was granted anonymity in accordance with Hearst’s ethics policy, states, “Many of the Republican attacks tested have alarming credibility,” including Republican attacks on COVID-19 policy. (The presentation does not clarify what it means by “credibility.”)
The poll found that that 57% of voters in competitive congressional districts agree with the statement, “Democrats in Congress have taken things too far in their pandemic response,” and 66% of self-defined “swing” voters in competitive districts agree with that statement. White and Hispanic voters in competitive districts were equally as likely to agree (59%), while Black voters (42%) and Asian voters (46%) disagreed with the statement. The poll also did not define what “taken things too far” means.
The DCCC found that critiques of COVID-19 restrictions were slightly less potent than other issues. In swing districts, 64% of voters agreed with the statement that “Democrats in Congress support defunding the police and taking more cops off of the street.” The internal poll found that 80% of self-defined swing voters in competitive districts agreed with the same statement. Politico previously reported on the DCCC warning about the effectiveness of what they refer to as conservative “culture war attacks.”
Sixty-two percent of voters in contested districts agreed with the statement, “Democrats in Congress have created a border crisis that allows illegal immigrants to enter the country without repercussions and grants them tax-payer funded benefits once here.” Seventy-eight percent of swing voters in those districts agreed.
Sixty-one percent of swing district voters agreed with the statements, “Democrats in Congress are spending money out of control,” and, “Democrats are teaching kids as young as five Critical Race Theory, which teaches that America is a racist country and that white people are racist.” And 59% agreed with the statement, “Democrats are too focused on pursuing an agenda that divides us and judging those who don’t see things their way.”
The slide deck provides a snapshot into some of Democrats’ strategies as their outlook for the 2022 midterms growsincreasinglygrim.
The DCCC presentation also contained a slide showing that the top two concerns of voters in competitive districts are inflation and health care, with the COVID-19 pandemic coming in third. Medicare/social security and climate change rounded out the top five. At the bottom of the list were voting rights, taxes and racial justice/equality.
Big Tech Censored Dozens of Doctors, More Than 800 Accounts for COVID-19 ‘Misinformation,’ Study Finds
Ailan Evans / @AilanHEvans / February 09, 2022

Major technology companies and social media platforms have removed, suppressed or flagged the accounts of more than 800 prominent individuals and organizations, including medical doctors, for COVID-19 “misinformation,” according to a new study from the Media Research Center.
The study focused on acts of censorship on major social media platforms and online services, including Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google Ads, and TikTok.
Instances of censorship included Facebook’s decision to flag the British Medical Journal with a “fact check” and “missing context” label, reducing the visibility of a post, for a study delving into data-integrity issues with a Pfizer vaccine clinical trial.
Facebook also deleted the page of the Great Barrington Declaration, an open letter led by dozens of medical professionals, including Dr. Jay Battacharya, a Stanford epidemiologist, and Dr. Martin Kulldorff, a former employee of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which advocated for less restrictive measures to address the dangers of COVID-19.
“Big Tech set up a system where you can’t disagree with ‘the science’ even though that’s the foundation of the scientific method,” Dan Gainor, MRC vice president of Free Speech America, told the Daily Caller National Foundation. “If doctors and academic journals can’t debate publicly, then it’s not science at all. It’s ‘religion.’”
Big Tech also scrubbed podcast host Joe Rogan’s interviews with scientists Dr. Peter McCullough and Dr. Robert Malone, the latter of whom was instrumental in pioneering mRNA technology. Twitter banned Malone from its platform permanently in late December over the virologist’s tweets questioning the efficacy and safety of the COVID-19 vaccine.
“We tallied 32 different doctors who were censored, including mRNA vaccine innovator Dr. Robert Malone,” Gainor said. “Censoring views of credentialed experts doesn’t ensure confidence in vaccines. It undermines faith in government COVID-19 strategies.“
In addition to medical doctors, the study examined instances in which members of Congress were censored by tech platforms.
These included an incident last August in which YouTube suspended Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., for posting a video arguing that “cloth masks” are not effective against the coronavirus, a view later echoed by many prominent medical commentators. Twitter also flagged a tweet from Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., in which he wrote “studies show those with natural immunity from a prior infection are much less likely to contract and spread COVID than those who only have vaccine-induced immunity.”
The study also examined Big Tech censorship of prominent media personalities, such as Rogan, Tucker Carlson, and Dan Bongino.
