Lawsuit Filed Against Biden, Top Officials for ‘Colluding’ With Big Tech to Censor Speech, Musk Twitter Deal Update; Meanwhile, Manufactured Housing Equities Dive


As our manufactured housing connected tracked equites graphic further below reveals, almost all of those stocks took a dive on 5.6.2022. It may be too soon to say that the U.S. economy is moving toward a collapse, as some alarmists are claiming, But the fact that the first quarter of 2022 reflected a contraction and other negative news items on inflation, rising interest rates, and more are occurring. Small business focused trade groups are reporting their concerns. Those are ongoing warning signs for the broader markets, including mainstream housing. As the 2022 midterm campaign season is in full swing, perhaps it is no surprise that the Biden regime has revealed plans to control “disinformation” in collusion with Big Tech platforms that largely supported Biden in 2020. The CHD Defender provided the following to MHProNews that cite sources across the left-right media divide.

Lawsuit Filed Against Biden, Top Officials for ‘Colluding’ With Big Tech to Censor Speech on Hunter, COVID

Fox News reported:

Two GOP-led states filed a lawsuit against President Biden, White House press secretary Jen Psaki, Dr. Anthony Fauci and other top administration officials alleging that they “pressured and colluded” with Big Tech social media companies to censor and suppress information on the Hunter Biden laptop story, COVID-19 origins and security of voting by mail during the pandemic.

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry filed the lawsuit Thursday in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana. The suit accuses top-ranking government officials of working with the giant social media companies MetaTwitter and YouTube “under the guise of combating misinformation” in order to achieve greater censorship.

Over 260 Travel, Business Groups Urge White House to End COVID Testing for U.S. Entry

Axios reported:

Over 260 travel industry and business organizations are calling on the Biden administration to end its COVID testing requirement for vaccinated international passengers entering the U.S.

The travel industry has taken multiple blows over the last two years due to the pandemic and emerging variants. Companies are looking to rebound despite another rise in cases.

“Given the slow economic recovery of the business and international travel sectors, and in light of medical advancements and the improved public health metrics in the U.S., we encourage you to immediately remove the inbound testing requirement for vaccinated air travelers,” said the letter addressed to incoming White House COVID-19 response coordinator Dr. Ashish Jha. “While there is no longer a need for an inbound testing requirement for vaccinated travelers, the economic costs associated with maintaining the measure are significant.”

The letter is signed by American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines Marriott International, Walt Disney Co’s Disney Parks, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the U.S. Travel Association, among others.

Senator Johnson Demands CDC Explain Why It Tracked Movements of Americans During Pandemic

The Daily Wire reported:

Republican Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson is calling on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to address why it tracked Americans throughout the coronavirus pandemic — and what other departments may have tracked the movements of United States citizens as well.

“It remains unclear why the CDC tracked millions of Americans during the pandemic and whether it continues to do so,” Johnson told the CDC in a Thursday letter first obtained by The Daily Wire. “In response to COVID-19, the CDC should have been prioritizing the development of treatments, effective testing, and vaccine safety rather than tracking Americans’ daily lives.”

Johnson called on the CDC to explain if its use of location data was “the only mechanism it employed to monitor Americans during the pandemic,” which official or officials at the CDC approved the “use and subsequent purchase of location data,” what companies supplied the CDC with this data and whether the CDC shared this location data with any other federal, state, or local agencies.

Bearing the Brunt of Inconsistent Mandates

New York Daily News reported:

As the country slowly bounces back from COVID-19, vaccine restrictions in restaurants and other indoor activities are lifting across the country. Beginning on March 7, the Key to NYC was discontinued, meaning that by law, residents and tourists alike no longer have to provide vaccine proof and ID to enjoy their favorite restaurants again.

Yet businesses are still permitted to continue checking vaccines at their own discretion. This isn’t easy on staff like me.

Whispers of the mandate lift spread around the restaurant, but management ensured that vaccines and ID would continue to be required for indoor eating. I was given a script on how to respond to questions regarding our continued checking: “Although the state has lifted the mandate, per NYC guidelines, our company still holds the right to ask for proof of vaccination.”

20 GOP Attorneys General Threaten Legal Action Over ‘Un-American’ Disinformation Board

The Daily Wire reported:

Virginia Republican Attorney General Jason Miyares sent a letter signed by 20 GOP attorneys general on Thursday to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas threatening legal action against its ‘un-American’ Disinformation Governance Board.

The letter claims that the new board violates the constitutional freedoms that attorneys general are called to defend.

“Today we write you to insist that you immediately cease taking action that appears designed exclusively for the purpose of suppressing the exercise of constitutional rights,” they added.

The letter also condemned the chilling impact the board would have on the free speech rights of Americans.

Here’s How Many San Francisco Police Officers Have Been Fired for Refusing to Get COVID Vaccines

San Francisco Chronicle via MSN reported:

Ten San Francisco police officers have been fired to date for failing to receive their COVID-19 vaccines, and 13 others soon follow, according to records provided by the city’s Department of Human Resources.

The potential 23 firings represent only about 1% of the department’s roughly 1,723 sworn members but come at a time when police officials say they’re facing staffing shortages.

“Officers who are not fully vaccinated are in various stages of the administrative review process, including termination hearings in front of the San Francisco Police Commission,” said Sgt. Adam Lobsinger, a spokesman for the department.

Police are not required to receive a COVID-19 booster shot, according to a March Department of Public Health order that reversed an earlier mandate. San Francisco still requires boosters for city workers who regularly work in high-risk settings, which include jails, hospitals and nursing homes. City employees including firefighters, paramedics and EMTs have until June 30 to get boosted, according to the most recent health order.

China Builds Permanent COVID Testing Stations for Life After Lockdown

Reuters reported:

China is setting up thousands of permanent PCR testing stations, with 9,000 already completed in Shanghai alone, as authorities seek to “normalize” tough pandemic controls even after the current round of lockdowns end.

At present, nearly 25 million residents in the eastern financial hub of Shanghai remain under some form of lockdown as the city battles China’s biggest-ever coronavirus outbreak.

But in a bid to head off future flare-ups, municipal authorities have been setting up a system that will make regular COVID-19 testing a permanent feature of everyday life, with other cities taking similar steps.

A Week Off Social Media Reduces Depression and Anxiety: Research

Bloomberg reported:

Taking a break from social media for as little as a week can reduce depression and anxiety, according to new research. People who took a break from platforms such as TikTok, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook for seven days reported an increased sense of wellbeing, a study by the University of Bath found.

Researchers split a sample of 154 people aged 18 to 72 into two groups – one of which was banned from social media while the other was not.

On average, participants used social media for eight hours a week. Participants were quizzed on their baseline levels of anxiety and depression, and their sense of well-being, using three recognized tests.

In the future, the researchers hope to study the impact of pausing social media use on specific segments of the population, such as younger people and those with physical and mental health conditions.

The WWII Writer Who Forecast 2022

CNN reported:

“1984” and the term “Orwellian” have been used (and abused) for decades, but our current moment arguably is genuinely “Orwellian.” Much of Orwell’s writing, and particularly his final novel “1984,” was preoccupied with the importance of speaking the truth and the risk to both individuals and societies when states attempt to censor and manipulate speech.

Truth, Orwell worried, could not exist in a vacuum. If the state were able to completely control what could be said and written, it could effectively control reality.

“1984” is a totalitarian dystopia in which Big Brother’s ruling party controls reality through their complete control of language. Through a combination of propaganda and censorship, the party remolds what truth means for the citizens of Oceania.

Facebook Doesn’t Know What It’s Doing With Your Data

Vice reported:

Facebook’s biggest strength is quickly becoming its largest headache. For years, Facebook has survived by tracking every little thing its users do and selling that on to everyone.

But now a slew of regulations across the globe are looking to crack down on the social media site and, according to leaked documents, Facebook has no idea how to get compliant. Worse, the social media giant has no idea where any given piece of data goes once it enters its ecosystem.

Lack of a Federal Privacy Law Opens the Door to Dystopia

The Washington Post reported:

Imagine every one of us could be located using only a photograph, or identified based on the way we walk — that our fingerprints could be scanned from afar, and our productivity assessed remotely as we work. This might sound like a dystopia, but at least one technological juggernaut thinks the vision will sell.

Clearview, a facial recognition company, says its client roster has expanded to more than 3,100 law enforcement agencies — but despite past promises to restrict its work to crime-fighting, the company dreams in its presentation of “limitless future applications” outside government. These include tackling “tough physical security problems” in retail, screening gig economy laborers and sizing up potential dates on smartphone apps.

The nation desperately needs a federal privacy law: a framework that dictates not merely what companies are permitted to do with specific types of technology, but also how and when they can collect, process and use all the personal data that flows through the Internet. One key to Clearview’s apparent eminence in the realm of facial recognition is how little restraint it has espoused compared with its more mainstream peers in Silicon Valley and Seattle that have limited sales of their technology until risks are reduced.

The other key is its vast trove of faces. Amassing these would have been a lot harder with firmer standards in place to keep the surveillance economy in check. Because Congress has failed to do that, we’re inching closer to a world where everyone is being watched.

10 Ways Information Shapers Have Infiltrated Our Institutions

The Epoch Times reported:

Few matters are so important as the integrity of the information we receive and the recent degradation in its reliability. The recent leak of a Supreme Court draft related to the landmark Roe v. Wade abortion case underscores how corrupted so many of our important institutions have become by those dedicated to shaping public opinion in a sometimes-dishonest way.

Nearly every facet of our American institutions has been infiltrated by activists, corporate and political propagandists and even criminals.

Here are 10 key institutions that have been successfully infiltrated by information shapers: … ##

Musk Pledges More ‘Free Speech’ as Governments Step Up Attacks on ‘Disinformation’

As Elon Musk prepares to finalize his purchase of Twitter, government officials in the U.S. and elsewhere are introducing new legislation aimed at combating “disinformation” online — particularly on social media platforms.

By Michael Nevradakis, Ph.D.

As Elon Musk prepares to finalize his purchase of Twitter, government officials in the U.S., the U.K., the European Union (EU) and elsewhere are introducing new legislation aimed at combating “disinformation” online — particularly on social media platforms.

In the U.S., these proposals include a government “disinformation board” and a bill pending before Congress, the Digital Services Oversight and Safety Act.

Overseas measures include the EU’s recently passed Digital Services Act and the U.K.’s proposed Online Safety Bill, in addition to similar existing legislation in Germany and other countries.

Shortly after Musk moved to buy Twitter, several dozen countries and entities — including the U.S. and EU — announced the ratification of the “Declaration for the Future of the Internet,” which, among other things, aims to “bolster resilience to disinformation and misinformation, and increase participation in democratic processes.”

These and other policies purport to hold tech companies, and in particular major social media platforms ranging from Twitter to Facebook to TikTok, responsible for hate speech and “disinformation” posted by users on their platforms, while opening up the tech giants’ algorithms and moderation practices to the public eye.

However, questions also arise as to what effect these regulations — including those originating from outside the U.S. — would have on the operation of tech platforms in the U.S. and globally.

Biden administration targets online ‘disinformation’

Two days after Elon Musk announced he was purchasing Twitter, the Biden administration announced the formation of a “Disinformation Governance Board.”

U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas made the announcement in testimony delivered April 27 before the House Appropriations Subcommittee.

“The goal is to bring the resources of [DHS] together to address this threat,” Mayorkas said, adding that the department is focused on the spread of disinformation in minority communities.

The “focus” of this new board will be “Russia and irregular migration.”

However, it is unclear what constitutes “disinformation” in the views of Mayorkas, the DHS or the Biden administration, or why it appears to be a particular problem in vaguely defined “minority communities.”

Michael Rectenwald, author of “Google Archipelago: The Digital Gulag and the Simulation of Freedom” and former New York University (NYU) professor who sued NYU in 2016 as a result of “cancel culture and settled with the university in 2019,” told The Defender:

“The Biden Politburo’s disinformation board will likely institute regulations that mirror the EU’s DSA by imposing similar if not identical restrictions on information and opinion.

“Musk will … likely face legislative threats from Democratic lawmakers, and other forms of coercion from the national and international establishment, including especially … from the EU’s [Digital Services Act]and the new U.S. disinformation board.”

Rectenwald said if “Musk is to have his way,” Twitter “would no longer discriminate against content based on wokeness, political beliefs or the adherence to official state narratives and dictates.”

This could include the restoration of banned accounts on request by users and dramatic changes to Twitter’s discriminatory, leftist algorithms.

“However, pressure to conform to woke dictates will come from the Big Tech ‘woke’ cartel, including threats to remove the Twitter app from the Apple Store for failure to censor ‘hate speech,’ and the flight of ‘woke’ advertisers,” Rectenwald said.

Will ‘disinformation’ be categorized as ‘terrorism’?

Former President George W. Bush established the DHS in the immediate aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, with a view toward protecting the U.S. against terrorism — suggesting the federal government may now be equating “disinformation” with terrorism.

Nina Jankowicz will be executive director of the new board. As reported by Politico, Jankowicz previously served as a “disinformation fellow” at the Wilson Center for Public Policy, advised the Ukrainian foreign ministry, and oversaw “Russia and Belarus programs” at the National Democratic Institute.

As previously reported by The Defender, the Ukrainian government has leveraged its close ties with “Big Tech” — including for the development of vaccine passports — to use social media and digital technologies as a “wartime tool.”

Jankowicz announced her new appointment on Twitter, stating she is “honored” to be helping the Biden administration’s “counter-disinformation efforts.”



Jankowicz previously shared concerns about “lies” spread on Twitter related to the 2020 U.S. presidential election, and about the legitimacy of news regarding Hunter Biden’s laptop, which she referred to as a “Trump campaign product.”

She also is on record saying that setting up free speech in opposition to censorship is “a false dichotomy.”

Jankowicz made waves — and raised some eyebrows — with videos of her singing, “Who do I f*ck to be famous and powerful?” and talking about “solving the mystery between Harry Potter’s legs.”

Musk: disinformation board ‘discomforting’

Musk in a tweet characterized the establishment of Biden’s disinformation board as “discomforting” and as a development akin to the practices of Nazi Germany.


Musk described himself as a “free speech absolutist” and announced his intention to turn Twitter into a “digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated.”

He also indicated there likely will be changes to Twitter’s moderation policies and the manner in which it handles account bans.

“My strong intuitive sense is that having a public platform that is maximally trusted and broadly inclusive is extremely important to the future of civilization,” Musk said.

He later later clarified in a tweet his definition of free speech, stating:

“By ‘free speech’ I simply mean that which matches the law. I am against censorship that goes far beyond the law.

“If people want less free speech, they will ask government to pass laws to that effect. Therefore, going beyond the law is contrary to the will of the people.”

The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution explicitly prohibits government censorship of information, making the implications of a government “disinformation board” or other similar measures unclear.

For instance, in addition to the new “disinformation board,” there is legislation currently pending in the U.S. House, the Digital Services Oversight and Safety Act, that would require more transparency and reporting from Big Tech platforms regarding how they moderate content.

However, this proposed law, as well as the disinformation board, also appear to run afoul of established U.S. law, namely, Section 230 of the Communication Decency Act, which prevents Big Tech platforms from being held liable for the content posted by their users.

Such companies have used Section 230 to argue they are not “publishers” of content —  which would bring with it other legal obligations.

However, the platforms do actively engage in content moderation, including the removal of posts and the suspension of user accounts for posting certain content, including alleged “disinformation.”

World Health Organization wary of Musk’s Twitter takeover

Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter elicited a public reaction from the World Health Organization (WHO).

During an April 26 virtual WHO conference, Dr. Mike Ryan, executive of WHO’s Health Emergencies Programme, said Musk will have a “huge influence” over the curbing and potential spreading of vaccine misinformation on Twitter.

However, Ryan added it’s not just Twitter but all social media platforms that need to address misinformation.

Notably, the WHO has itself been closely linked with social media fact-checkers, particularly in response to alleged COVID-19-related “disinformation,” as previously reported by The Defender.

Specifically, the WHO closely collaborates with NewsGuard, a fact-checking firm that is also closely tied to several Big Pharma drugmakers.

NewsGuard, in turn, partners with the Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH), whose board members recently expressed several concerns regarding Musk’s Twitter purchase.

Damian Collins, a member of the British parliament with the Labour Party who led a parliamentary committee that developed the Online Safety Bill, is a CCDH board member.

Responding to Musk’s Twitter buyout, Collins said if Musk truly wishes to make Twitter a free-speech haven, “he will need to clean up the digital town square,” adding that up until now, Twitter users would frequently be drowned out by “bot” accounts spreading “disinformation,” resulting in users refraining from expressing themselves “because of the hate and abuse they will receive.”

Imran Ahmed, CCDH’s chief executive and former investment banker with Merrill Lynch —  who also maintains close ties to the U.K. Labour Party — expressed similar sentiments, stating “[T]he U.K. and the EU are going to have tools to deal with this. Twitter is going to find it very difficult to operate in the U.K. if it tries to operate on a completely free-speech, zero-rules basis.”

Dr. Joseph Mercola previously described CCDH as “a progressive cancel-culture leader” with extensive ties to government and global think tanks that has labeled questioning the COVID-19 injection as ‘threats to national security.’”

Specifically regarding COVID-19 vaccines, for instance, CCDH has warned the “anti-vaccine movement could undermine the roll-out of any future vaccine against COVID-19.”

CCDH has added that the pandemic “will only be overcome by the most ambitious vaccination programme in human history” and that those who question this program have fringe and extremist views. ##
