Free Speech



We’re celebrating a MASSIVE free speech victory as the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the ruling that President Joe Biden cannot censor conservatives on social media. A federal judge originally proclaimed this digital censorship “the most massive attack against free speech in United States’ history.” Such a Deep State attack on the First Amendment is unthinkable.

When the Biden Administration appealed to fight back against the judge’s ruling, we filed a FOIA request to get answers. We also filed an amicus brief in federal appeals court against Biden’s unconstitutional attack on free speech.

The Washington Examiner reports:

The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld a lower court’s ruling that prohibits numerous federal government officials from contacting social media companies.

The appeals court in New Orleans upheld a decision in Missouri v. Biden that came down from the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana in July.

The district judge had placed a preliminary injunction in July prohibiting the defendants, including President Joe Biden, United States Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra, and former chief medical adviser Anthony Fauci, from contacting social media companies over content it believes to be misinformation.

So now the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld the earlier ruling that the judge made – a major step in preventing the Biden Administration from interfering in future elections as it did in 2020 by censoring the Hunter Biden laptop story.

We expect this case to make it to the U.S. Supreme Court. But with a conservative majority of Justices on the bench now, we feel confident that the outcome will favor free speech. Regardless, we will be advocating for Americans’ free speech the entire way.

In light of the recent victories that we’ve had against digital censorship, are you more likely to get back on social media? I know many conservatives left Facebook and Twitter to use alternative social media sites that reach fewer people. And I don’t blame them after the unconstitutional targeting that took place. So will you give the aforementioned social media platforms another shot?

Speaking of ACLJ cases against conservative censorship, we plan to file a federal case against the Biden Administration on behalf of Charlie Kirk and Turning Point USA.

Before the 2020 election, Kirk had millions of followers on social media. But after President Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) began suppressing conservative social media accounts, Kirk lost hundreds of thousands of followers. Such Deep State interference violated Kirk’s First Amendment right to free speech.

Turning Point USA wasn’t the only conservative organization targeted. Other victims of this government-funded targeting include the Heritage Foundation, the Christian Broadcasting Network, Fox News, and many more. Aside from Kirk’s voice being suppressed, how many other conservative Americans were silenced online?

Our new lawsuit will ensure that the Biden Administration cannot interfere in future elections and censor conservatives online. Stay tuned for further updates on this massive federal case against the Biden Administration. In the meantime, sign our new petition to preserve conservatives’ liberty online.

ACLJ Senior Advisor for National Security and Foreign Policy Ric Grenell also joined us to discuss world news involving President Biden’s weak statement, “I don’t want to contain China.”

Clearly, President Biden is afraid of the Chinese. They have something on him. He doesn’t want to stand up to them. We see it over and over again. He is afraid to somehow make China angry. And so he’s sucking up. I think there’s no other way to say it, and it is really troubling because when I look across the world, I think Russia is clearly a problem, but China is a crisis.

Biden’s confounding statement raises questions about his weak stance toward China. Why is he afraid to assert the U.S.’s authority on the world stage? We can’t allow China and Russia to foster an alliance that poses a future threat. Couple this statement with the footage of Biden practically falling asleep during a press conference in Vietnam, and the rest of the world must be laughing at us.

Today’s Sekulow broadcast also included a discussion with ACLJ Senior Counsel CeCe Heil about our efforts to save the unborn against Biden’s illegal expansion of the abortion pill. This case is destined for the Supreme Court, and we will once again be filing a critical amicus brief.
