Newly subpoenaed internal notes of meetings between Facebook executives and Biden Admin officials reveal more about the lengths the Biden White House wanted to go to control true speech on Facebook.

🧵 Thread:…
In 2021, the White House wanted to control what narratives and true content was posted on Facebook surrounding #COVID19.

President Biden went so far to say that Facebook was “killing people” for allowing certain statements to be published on the site.…
Rob Flaherty, President Biden’s then-Director of Digital Strategy, repeatedly put pressure on Facebook to explain its content decisions.

“We have to explain to President, Ron, people, why there is misinfo on the internet…” Image
For example, Flaherty questioned whether Facebook was doing enough to reduce traffic from sites like the @nypost.

“I’m curious – NY Post churning out articles every day... What is supposed to happen to that from Policy perspective. Does that article get a reduction, labels?” Image
But that wasn’t enough for the Biden White House. Flaherty wanted Facebook to go a step further.

He wanted Facebook to kick people off its site. Image
The Biden White House’s effort to censor opposing viewpoints only grew.

So, they upped the pressure.

Flaherty demanded that Facebook “play ball” and work with the Biden White House on censorship.

He called it his “dream.” Image
But that’s not all.

The Biden White House wanted to control what you saw on Facebook.

They questioned whether Facebook could change its algorithm so users saw more posts from the New York Times and less from the @realDailyWire and @TomiLahren. Image
Why did they do that? Because they didn’t think you were smart enough to decide for yourself.

President Biden’s head of strategic communications and public engagement for the #COVID19 response, Courtney Rowe, mocked Real America’s ability to determine what's true and what isn’t. Image
Facebook knew it had to act.

One employee tried to explain to the White House that if the company couldn’t “remove” content, it could at least “contain it.” Image
But Flaherty continued to press for more content moderation and CONTROL on so-called “bad” content.

And of course, Facebook caved.

The company ADMITTED to the White House that it reduced content of certain posts – even if the posts didn’t violate the company’s terms and contained TRUE information.
Just read this from a Facebook employee. Image
These newly subpoenaed meeting notes continue to show the Biden White House’s desire to direct and control content on Facebook.

More evidence of the censorship-industrial complex.

Newly subpoenaed documents reveal Facebook bowed to the Biden White House’s pressure to remove posts.

🧵 Thread:…
In sum­mer of 2021, the White House was mount­ing a na­tion­wide push for Amer­i­cans to get vaccinated for Covid-19.

Part of that push in­cluded a pub­lic and SECRET campaign to get Facebook to more ag­gres­sively po­lice vac­cine-re­lated con­tent, including TRUE information.
This wasn’t the Biden Admin's first pressure campaign.

In July 2021, FB’s head of Global Affairs asked why FB had been censoring the COVID lab leak theory. The answer was clear: “Because we were under pressure from the administration . . . We shouldn’t have done it.” Image

🧵 Thread:
Never-before-released internal documents subpoenaed by the Judiciary Committee PROVE that Facebook and Instagram censored posts and changed their content moderation policies because of unconstitutional pressure from the Biden White House.
During the first half of 2021, social media companies like Facebook faced tremendous pressure from the Biden White House—both publicly and privately—to crack down on alleged “misinformation."

In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to their own town to register.
So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child.
While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.

H.R. 4 is a radical and unconstitutional power grab that will politicize commonsense election integrity efforts, and give the Biden Administration veto authority over voter ID laws implemented by states.
It’s never been easier to vote in America, as the evidence shows, but Democrats continue to push a false narrative of ‘voter suppression’ in Republican states, while ignoring restrictive voting laws in Democrat states, like President Biden’s home state of Delaware.
Instead of pursuing far-left federal takeovers of elections, Democrats should focus on real problems facing Americans, like the crisis at the southern border, rising gas prices, crime, inflation, and President Biden’s failed leadership in Afghanistan.

President Trump truly cares about the American people.

Our family’s seen it.
Two years ago, our nephew Eli was killed in a car accident. He lived a mile from us. Grew up wrestling and training with our boys. Was a high school state champion. Varsity athlete for Wisconsin.
It was a Saturday morning, three days after the accident. I was walking to the car, to go to Eli’s parent’s home, when the President called.
