There are currently a couple of kinetic wars ongoing- one in Ukraine and another in the Middle East but there is a third one that threatens the freedom of pretty much everyone on Earth.
It is the war on free speech. And it’s global.
During the 2020 election the FBI and former CIA officers suppressed information harmful to Joe Biden. In 2022 Biden pressured social media to again suppress information harmful to democrats. Without a doubt this affected the elections. With the taste of success in his mouth Biden is once again looking to suppress free speech, especially as Americans are not buying his gaslighting on the economy. The regime is depicting it as combating “disinformation” in the same manner that the Trump dossier was Russian disinformation.
Cause for concern: The Biden team is ‘working with social media platforms to counter misinformation.’ This time it seeks to ‘counter’ reports that food and other items cost a lot after Biden-era inflation. From WP: https://t.co/Zsx8ztHCn6

Millions of American phones are being monitored
Millions of Americans who use AT&T’s phone network are having their phone calls monitored by a surveillance program called Data Analytical Services (DAS), which has had coordination with federal and local law enforcement agencies.
According to a document obtained by WIRED, DAS has been secretly collecting and analyzing over one trillion domestic phone records within the U.S. each year.
The program used to be called Hemisphere and is run by AT&T in coordination with different agencies, according to Fox News.
A bombshell report by Michael Shellenberger reveals that US and UK military contractors created a sweeping plan for Global Censorship In 2018 prevent a repeat the 2016 election.
A whistleblower has come forward with an explosive new trove of documents, rivaling or exceeding the Twitter Files and Facebook Files in scale and importance. They describe the activities of an “anti-disinformation” group called the Cyber Threat Intelligence League, or CTIL, that officially began as the volunteer project of data scientists and defense and intelligence veterans but whose tactics over time appear to have been absorbed into multiple official projects, including those of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
The CTI League documents offer the missing link answers to key questions not addressed in the Twitter Files and Facebook Files. Combined, they offer a comprehensive picture of the birth of the “anti-disinformation” sector, or what we have called the Censorship Industrial Complex.
Another explains that while such activities overseas are “typically” done by “the CIA and NSA and the Department of Defense,” censorship efforts “against Americans” have to be done using private partners because the government doesn’t have the “legal authority.”
The whistleblower alleges that a leader of CTI League, a “former” British intelligence analyst, was “in the room” at the Obama White House in 2017 when she received the instructions to create a counter-disinformation project to stop a “repeat of 2016.”

Taking a cue from Biden, in western nations particularly free speech is under assault. The former PM of New Zealand calls free speech “a weapon of war.”
Speaking at the UN, WEF Young Global Leader and former PM of New Zealand, Jacinda Ardern, declares free speech a “weapon of war”, in the globalist war against so-called “disinformation”―i.e. any information that exposes the agenda for global control by unelected globalist… pic.twitter.com/b0pdfWuytq

In Canada, Trudeau is crushing free speech.
Canadians made the mistake of taking free speech for granted. Now, President Biden’s friend, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, is close to having new laws in place that would expand government regulation of online speech in Canada. In fact, Biden will be traveling to Canada later this month on an official state visit. For the sake of the United States, here’s hoping that Biden doesn’t get any ideas from Trudeau.
The Canadian legislation in question is known as Bill C-11, or the Online Streaming Act. Ostensibly a way to prioritize the “needs and interests” of Canadians, the Trudeau administration claims the act will ensure online algorithms promote Canadian content on social media and streaming platforms like Netflix, Disney+ and Spotify. Yet when a multi-partisan group of Canadian Senators proposed an amendment to the legislation to protect what individual citizens say on social media from government oversight and regulation, the Trudeau administration rejected the amendment.
In France, Macron is doing much the same
French President Emmanuel Macron has intensified his drive for heightened censorship measures in France, advocating for the state to possess the authority to impose “digital public order” during periods of civil unrest and protests.
To address the issue, the French president calls for the government to institute “digital public order,” granting authorities the power to remove problematic content from social media. The aim is to “better protect young people from screens through partnerships with platforms,” as reported by Le Figaro.
In England this is allowed in Sadiq Khan’s London

Ireland doesn’t want anyone complaining about the illegal alien criminals pouring in

And they’re blathering about Trump becoming a dictator?
This does give one a greater appreciation for the First Amendment, not that Joe Biden gives a damn about the Constitution. As for disinformation, anyone remember lockdowns being necessary, COVID came from an animal, vaccination prevents transmission of COVID, that this Thanksgiving was the cheapest history, get vaccinated and you won’t get COVID, that Hunter Biden never made a penny from China?
Seems to me that we ought to be able to censor government.
DrJohn has been a health care professional for more than 30 years. In addition to clinical practice he has done extensive research and has published widely with over 70 original articles and abstracts in the peer-reviewed literature. DrJohn is well known in his field and has lectured on every continent except for Antarctica. He has been married to the same wonderful lady for over 30 years and has three kids- two sons, both of whom are attorneys and one daughter on her way into the field of education.
DrJohn was brought up with the concept that one can do well if one is prepared to work hard but nothing in life is guaranteed.
Except for liberals being foolish.
