VICTORY! Federal Judge Shoots Down Biden Efforts to Block Missouri-Louisiana-Gateway Pundit, et al’s Lawsuit Against Federal Government Violations Against Free Speech

VICTORY!! Federal Judge Shoots Down Biden Efforts to Block Missouri / Louisiana / Gateway Pundit, et al’s Lawsuit Against Federal Government for its Government-Wide, Fascist Conspiracy with Big Tech to Censor Speech and Manipulate the Public.  

The Gateway Pundit previously reported in May that Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, along with Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry,  filed a lawsuit (Missouri v. Biden) against the Biden Administration, including Biden himself, Anthony Fauci, the Department of Homeland Security, and nearly a dozen federal agencies and Secretaries.

The suit alleges a massive coordinated effort by the Deep State (permanent administrative state) to work with Big Tech to censor and manipulate Americans – from average citizens to news outlets – on issues including the Hunter Biden Laptop from Hell, 2020 Election Integrity, COVID-19 origin and extent skepticism, COVID-19 vaccine skepticism, among other issues.

Here’s a copy of the First Amended Complaint.

In June 2022, The Gateway Pundit began assisting Missouri AG Schmitt’s team and providing critical evidence of Facebook and Twitter censorship of the Gateway Pundit on all of these issues.

Missouri Attorney General Files Landmark Lawsuit Against Biden for Colluding with Big Tech — Evidence from The Gateway Pundit Plays Major Role in Case

The case reached a CRUCIAL turning point in July when AG Schmitt and his team won a huge victory. 

They persuaded the federal judge to grant them limited discovery (investigatory powers) BEFORE the Court.

The Gateway Pundit wrote about the development here.

This allowed AG Schmitt to compel the government AND FACEBOOK AND TWITTER and a few other social media platforms to turn over documents and communications exchanged between the government and the social media platforms, in which censorship was discussed.

In August 2022, we reported that TGP’s Jim Hoft himself became the lead non-governmental plaintiff in the lawsuit against the government.

Since then, AG Schmitt’s team has been engaged in a slug-fest with the government and Big Tech to turn over the demanded documents.

Neither the government nor Big Tech wants to disclose the damning evidence against them and they’ve fought like hell to stop the disclosure.

Since that time, numerous government officials including Dr. Tony Fauci have been deposed and testified in the case.

And former Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmidt became a sitting US Senator from Missouri. The new Missouri AG Andrew Bailey took over when Eric Schmidt left the office.

Terry A. Doughty, the chief U.S. district judge in the Western District of Louisiana, is overseeing the case. The government is obviously very concerned about this case as it proceeds.

ON November 22, 2022, The Government filed a massive MOTION TO DISMISS (the lawsuit).  Subsequently, the Government and States of Missouri and Louisiana and Gateway Pundit have been battling, in multiple lengthy legal briefs, why the federal court should NOT dismiss our lawsuit.

In support of our efforts to avoid getting knocked out, on MONDAY, March 6, 2023,  Missouri and Louisiana filed a massive summary of the evidence so far uncovered in the case,  along with a supplemental preliminary injunction brief.

The fact-finding summary is remarkable because it is the most comprehensive summary to date – anywhere – detailing the fascist, government-wide conspiracy with Big Tech to suppress speech and thought during the COVID-19 insanity, the 2020 election, and beyond.

The summary is the most powerful indictment yet of the oligarchy within the federal government’s disgusting campaign to subvert the will of, and manipulate, and control the public.

The document is 364 pages.

This massive trove of evidence proved decisive.

Yesterday – Monday 20, 2023 – Judge Doughty issued his Order DENYING the Government’s MOTION TO DISMISS.

The past year’s legal battle has solely been over Missour, Louisiana, and Gateway Pundit, et al’s ability or right to prosecute this lawsuit.  The Government’s efforts heretofore have been focused on obfuscating and stonewalling evidence on the one hand, and engaging in numerous tactics to extricate itself from the lawsuit, including through the filing of multiple motions to dismiss and to change venue (that is, to change courts in order to draw a communist judge who favors authoritarian government and widespread governmental censorship.

Now that the Government lost its main effort to crush us, the real war begins.  Having lost this crucial battle, the Government will be compelled to engage in full, “general” discovery.  This means that Missouri, Louisiana, Gateway Pundit, and the rest of plaintiffs will be empowered to conduct a wide-ranging investigation into the Government’s fascist conspiracy with Big Tech to shut down speech, censor thought, and engage in population manipulation through information control.

Now, we’re coming for all their evidence.  Now, we’re coming to depose all of the tyrants.  We’re going to root it out and expose all of them.  Watch the bugs scatter as the rock tumbles over.

Any time Democrats complain about Vladimir Putin’s “authoritarianism” just remember that we’re in the process of uncovering possibly the largest, most widespread conspiracy to deprive Americans of their Constitutional Rights in the history of the United States.

Russia may have Vladimir Putin and his oligarchs; America has the oligarchs of Permanent Washington.

We will keep you posted as events continue to unfold.
