America’s Frontline Doctors held their first press conference outside the Supreme Court of the United States on July 27. Their main message was that Americans no longer need fear COVID-19 because the FDA-approved drug hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) has proven to be an effective treatment. Read the transcript of their press conference.
The site of America’s Frontline Doctors before it was blocked said:
American life has fallen casualty to a massive disinformation campaign. We can speculate on how this has happened, and why it has continued, but the purpose of the inaugural White Coat Summit is to empower Americans to stop living in fear. If Americans continue to let so-called experts and media personalities make their decisions, the great American experiment of a Constitutional Republic with Representative Democracy, will cease.

Big Tech Blocked Most Viral Video in History!
The July 27 press conference by America’s Frontline Doctors’ was aired by Breitbart. The video went viral and was seen by 20 million people before it was taken down by Big Tech. In the interview farther below with Del BigTree, Dr. Simone Gold who created the group and organized the event said that their press conference was the most viral video in history. America’s Frontline Doctors held the first day of the two-day summit on July 27 and it was aired by Breitbart. The second day of the summit was scheduled for 8:30AM-1PM on July 28, but was not broadcast.
Less than 24 hours after the Frontline Doctors first press conference in Washington D.C. was censored and removed from Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter, and after having their own website knocked offline in an attempt to silence them, the doctors were back in front of the steps of the Supreme Court building today (Tuesday, July 28, 2020) for their second press conference, at great risk to their lives, their families, and their jobs, as they remained determined to bring the truth directly to the American people that a cure for COVID exists, and that the public does not need to cower in fear anymore.
Dr. Gold said:
We are finally coming forward, at great personal and professional costs to ourselves. We’re tired of seeing patients die in front of us, and we’re even more upset to see the spider web of fear that is enveloping the American public. When there’s a treatment, there’s a cure. People have been afraid to say that. But what else do you call it if you give somebody the medication early, and it aborts the disease process? We’re coming after you Big Tech. We’re coming after you. We won’t be silenced. The First Amendment is first for a reason. There’s thousands of us.
The event, hosted by the organization America’s Frontline Doctors, a group founded by Dr. Simone Gold, a board-certified physician and attorney, and made up of medical doctors, came together to address what the group calls a “massive disinformation campaign” about the coronavirus. Norman also spoke at the event. “If Americans continue to let so-called experts and media personalities make their decisions, the great American experiment of a Constitutional Republic with Representative Democracy, will cease,” reads the event’s information page. However, Andy Stone, a Facebook company spokesman, told Breitbart News, “We’ve removed this video for sharing false information about cures and treatments for COVID-19,”. The company did not specify what portion of the video it ruled to be “false information,” who it consulted to make that ruling, and on what basis it was made.

HCQ CURED Hundreds of COVID Patients
Below is the abbreviated testimony of Dr. Stella Immanuel from the July 27 press conference.
Hello, I’m Dr. Stella Immanuel. I’m a primary care physician in Houston, Texas. I went to medical school in West Africa, Nigeria, where I took care of malaria patients, treated them with hydroxychloroquine.
So I’m actually used to these medications. I’m here because I have personally treated over 350 patients with COVID. Patients that have diabetes, patients that have high blood pressure, patients that have asthma, old people … I think my oldest patient is 92 … 87 year olds. And the result has been the same.
I put them on hydroxychloroquine, I put them on zinc, I put them on Zithromax, and they’re all well.
For the past few months, after taking care of over 350 patients, we’ve not lost one. Not a diabetic, not somebody with high blood pressure, not somebody with asthma, not an old person. We’ve not lost one patient. I’ve put myself, my staff, and many doctors that I know on hydroxychloroquine for prevention, because by the very mechanism of action, it works early and as a prophylaxis. We see patients, 10 to 15 COVID patients, every day. We give them breathing treatments. We only wear surgical masks. None of us has gotten sick. It works.
So right now, I came here to Washington DC to say, America, nobody needs to die. The study that made me start using hydroxychloroquine was a study that they did under the NIH in 2005 that says it works. Recently, I was doing some research about a patient that had hiccups and I found out that they even did a recent study in the NIH, which is our National Institute Health. They treated a patient that had hiccups with hydroxychloroquine and it proved that hiccups is a symptom of COVID.
HCQ COVID-19 Cure Is Safe and Inexpensive
In her October interview on “America Can We Talk” which in the “COVID Cancels” video in the media section of AFLDS’ website, Dr. Gold says to visit their site to get the name of a physician who can prescribe HCQ if needed. She explains why masks, lockdowns, testing, social distancing, and the COVID vaccine are not necessary and says schools should open fully.
Dr. Gold says, “We’re living in lunatic times!” when governors tell doctors how to practice medicine! Gov. Gavin Newsom of California threatened to take the medical licenses of MDs who prescribe HCQ for COVID patients, although it’s an inexpensive FDA-approved drug that is on the WHO’s list of safe drugs, is an OTC drug in many countries, and is used in at least eight countries as a quick CURE for COVID.
In the video at: https://www.americasfrontlinedoctors.com/media, Dr. Gold explained that HCQ is safer than Tylenol and aspirin. She says that there is no safety issue with this drug — look at the FDA database. The American Heart Association site also shows that there is no safety issue whatsoever. Dr. Gold says that hydroxychloroquine is as close to a magic bullet as she has ever seen in her 20 years of practicing as an emergency physician. Every time she has used it, patients have improved — typically within 12-24 hours. If it is used early, the turnaround is dramatic!
Dr. Gold pointed out that suppression of HCQ is a crime against humanity. Depriving people of access to it is killing people. This is a life-saving medication that is extremely safe. It would change everything. Around 70,000 of the 100,000 people who died would be alive now. It’s been FDA-approved for 55 years. It’s given to children, pregnant women, immune-compromised people, to the elderly, to healthy patients. There’s tons of data to support that. It’s only a media fiction that there’s controversy.
Dr. Gold explains in the “The Charlie Kirk Show” video on the AFLDS site that while we have a medical ISSUE, we also have a legal CRISIS because some policy makers and governors have used COVID to instill a level of fear and implement policies that trample on our unalienable constitutional rights. Dr. Gold explains that doctors are the last line of defense now for truth about COVID, our medical freedoms, and our constitutional freedoms.
NIH’s Death Sentence For COVID Patients
NIH Limiting Early Treatment for COVID Patients a Death Sentence for Many Americans reported on October 22:
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) recently announced that the federal agency would take the radical step of prohibiting early treatments nationwide for COVID-infected patients, except those already hospitalized and requiring oxygen.
Dr. Simone Gold, M.D., J.D., FABEM, a board-certified emergency physician and founder of America’s Frontline Doctors, said, “The evidence that early treatment works is overwhelming. Even patients over age 70 have a 95% success rate with the virus but the truth is it could be virtually 100%.
Dr. Gold released the following statement in response to the decision:
The measures taken by federal health officials to limit early treatment options for COVID-infected patients are nothing short of a death sentence for Americans. We stand with concerned physicians trying to preserve the doctor-patient relationship against government overreach and flawed science. Had this guidance been in place a month ago, President Trump would have been denied treatment at Walter Reed Medical Center. AFLDS urges the President to immediately reject such biased recommendations and continue to advocate for early treatment consistent with findings laid out in the American Journal of Medicine in early August.
Doctors Love HCQ. Why Does Fauci Hate It?
In Doctors Love It, Fauci Hates It. Why?, Del Bigtree of The Highwire discusses Fauci’s strange opposition to HCQ, a proven inexpensive cure for COVID-19! The show says:
WHY With so many frontline doctors speaking up on their success treating Covid19 with a 65yearold FDA approved malaria drug, many wonder what would motivate our top health officials and social media platforms to silence their voices.
America’s Frontline Doctors Say No More Lockdowns!
When America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLDS), a coalition of physicians dedicated to putting patients first, held their first White Coat Summit in July, they delivered seven hours of educational content live-streamed around the world. Doctors from across the country offered hope for Americans as they brought a strong message about early treatment options. The event was viewed nearly 20 million times before it was censored by Big Tech and removed across all social media virtually simultaneously just hours after the footage was uploaded.
America’s Frontline Doctors held their second White Coat Summit in Washington, DC. on October 16 and 17. They say “No!” to more lockdowns! The Summit delivered over four hours of educational content on early treatment, discussed the corruption of the scientific process, testing inaccuracies, the science of masks, kids and schools, protecting the frail elderly, and overcoming fear.
These dedicated physicians warn “We are being banned from every social media platform. Someone does not want you to hear our message!” Dr. Robin Armstrong, an internal medicine physician practicing in hospitals and nursing homes said, “Early treatment is the key and there is an inexpensive option. We are here to say that COVID-19 does not need to kill… and you do not need to walk in fear any longer.”
Dr. Fauci warns of a ‘whole lot of pain’ due to coronavirus pandemic in the coming months shows that Dr. Fauci intends to continue to use COVID to inflict yet more pain on America! Dr. Gold points out,
The stakes are high. A second lockdown could mean thousands more dead Americans. I’m imploring my fellow doctors: We have the data. We understand the science. It’s on us. This country cannot go backwards because we failed to act in time.

Dr. Gold’s Interview With Del Bigtree
Frontline Doctors on Censorship: We’re Coming After You Big Tech – We Will Not Be Silenced! shows that America’s Frontline Doctors are ready to stand up to Big Tech to rescue Americans! These doctors will not be stopped in their mission. We must support them now! Dr. Gold pointed out in her interview with Del that 70,000 to 100,000 Americans died unnecessarily of COVID because doctors are not allowed to prescribe HCQ! Donate to America’s Frontline Doctors to support their courageous work to protect our health and freedoms.
Frontline ER Doctor From Viral HCQ Video Fired From Job (Updated). In an interview with Tucker Carlson of Fox News, Dr. Gold pointed out that she has been celebrated as a hero in her role as an ER doctor. For months, the media has encouraged Americans to cheer ER doctors and nurses and people have gone to their windows, balconies, and yards at 7PM each night to celebrate these heroes. However, when these brave MDs share news about an inexpensive, safe, FDA-approved cure for COVID-19 that is saving lives, the news is censored by Big Tech! Dr. Gold was fired from both hospitals where she worked because she participated in the July 27 and 28 press conference and summit to help inform and heal America!
Dr. Gold’s new book is I Do Not Consent: My Fight Against Medical Cancel Culture. She vowed again in her interview with Del broadcast on October 22 that she is going after Big Tech! Dr. Gold (also a lawyer) is coming out swinging at Gov. Cuomo of New York.
Amazon says about the book:
From treating COVID patients in her local hospital to fighting for the rights of frontline doctors, Dr. Simone Gold tells her story. The bumper-sticker directive to ‘follow the science’ was actually an evasion of responsibility. It let people off the hook for their bad decisions in a crisis. Was New York Governor Cuomo’s executive order sending COVID-hospitalized patients back to nursing homes to infect other vulnerable nursing home patients ‘following the science’?
Of course not. And sending post-hospitalization COVID-positive patients back to nursing homes was unnecessary. Relative to the total nursing home population, Governor Cuomo contributed to a larger percentage of nursing-home deaths—especially when compared to the states without such a policy. New Jersey’s over seven thousand nursing home deaths account for half of the state’s fatalities since March. Pennsylvania did just as miserably. These governors made specific decisions that cost thousands of the most vulnerable, most expendable, their lives. But they didn’t do it to their own relatives.
Amazon Bans Doctors’ Best-Selling Book!
Big Tech is censoring other doctors who are trying to inform Americans now. Amazon sells several books by Dr. Thomas Cowan as well as many of his nutritional supplements. It also sells several books by Dr. Sally Fallon. However, Amazon just banned their new book Contagion Myth: Why Viruses (including “Coronavirus”) Are Not the Cause of Disease which was a #1 Best Seller at Barnes & Noble, but is no longer on the list!
Why Did Amazon Ban Our Book? is an informative discussion with Dr. Cowan and Dr. Fallon about the shocking causes of COVID they document in their ground-breaking book! Banning books in this era is equivalent to book burning in Nazi Germany. What are the Tech Titans so afraid of Americans knowing? Knowledge is power. In denying Americans access to information, Big Tech is undermining the power of the nation. That makes the Tech Titans subversive, anti-American, and even terrorists.
In “Whatever Happened to Rigorous, Open, Scientific Discourse?”, Dr. Cowan wrote to subscribers:
The central premise of “The Contagion Myth” is that, contrary to what we have been led to believe, no actual scientific evidence exists that any novel coronavirus exists. Science lays out clear, well-accepted and defined rules for how we determine that a new virus exists. Researchers take a sample from a sick person, macerate, filter and centrifuge it until a pure virus is obtained. This virus is then examined under the electron microscope.
Shockingly, on page 39 of the CDC’s July 2020 bulletin, the CDC acknowledges no published “isolates” of the coronavirus are known. Equally shockingly, the authors of the six most important papers on the isolation and characterization of this new virus all publicly and in writing admit that they neither purified nor isolated this virus. At this point, there is simply no evidence this virus exists, let alone causes any disease.
We, of course, could be incorrect in our documentation of these statements as well as many other pieces of historical evidence we lay out, in which case in a free, open and post-Enlightenment society, other researchers would come forth with clear evidence that we are in error.
I would welcome such a discourse. I would love to review whatever studies they would present. Yet, instead, we are met with censorship and scorn. This response is an ominous development in the life of humanity, one we must oppose.
The Truth About Vaccines Censored!
If ever we needed to know the truth about vaccines, it is now when we face an unprecedented mandatory vaccine that can alter our DNA and is being rushed at Warp Speed for a virus that the CDC says poses little threat to anyone under age 70! Ty Bollinger, host of the informative 10-day docuseries Truth About Vaccines reported on October 24 that Verizon was blocking their text messages! That’s a step beyond Google, Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter censoring websites and Amazon banning books. What’s the next step?
The Battle For Humanity says: “This may be the most important video you will ever watch in your life!” The active ingredient in the Moderna vaccine which will alter our RNA or DNA is called “Luciferase”. Is that code for “Lucifer erase” humanity? Will the vaccine implant Bill Gates’ “666” chip discussed below?
Dr. Carrie Madej warns that the purpose of the COIVD vaccine is twofold: 1. To reprogram our DNA to make us human/AI hybrids that will be easier to control and 2. To implant a Digital Vaccine ID that will allow total control over each person. The site warns: There is a battle raging for humanity. Dr Carrie Madej reveals how Big Tech collaborates with Big Pharma to introduce new technologies in the coming vaccines that will alter our DNA and turn us into hybrids. This will end humanity as we know it, and start the process of transhumanism: HUMAN 2.0. The plans are to use vaccines to inject nanotechnology into our bodies and connect us to the Cloud and artificial intelligence. This will enable corrupt governments and tech giants to control us without us being aware of it.
Proof that the pandemic was planned with a purpose is a website by Doctors for Information. Over 500 German medical doctors said during a national press conference: “The Corona panic is a play. It’s a scam. A swindle. It’s high time we understood that we’re in the midst of a global crime.”
We Need To Hear Other Side Of COVID-19 Story!
The corporate media and Tech Giants have allowed only one side of the COVID-19 story to be told. So, many Americans have been terrified by what they believe is a “deadly pandemic”. They believe that they must obey all the COVID-19 “health” policies or risk being killed or possibly kill others.
However, there is another important side of the story that is being told only on the alternative media in sites like Natural Blaze, Activist Post, and The Highwire. People need this information to make informed decisions. The free film Plandemic: Indoctornation is an easy way to get the other side of the story.
Senator Rand Paul Grills Fauci on COVID “Health” Policies!
Fauci Gets Grilled shows that in recent Senate hearings, Dr. Anthony Fauci was questioned by Senator Rand Paul (an MD) about the destructive COVID “health” policies he imposed on America.
WHO Accused of Mass Murder and Sued For Bioterrorism
If all of that is not enough to give serious pause before Tech Titans rely on WHO recommendations, Journalist Files Charges against WHO and UN for Bioterrorism and Intent to Commit Mass Murder discusses the criminal charges filed by Austrian medical journalist Jane Burgermeister. In 2009, she discovered and reported that the flu vaccine Baxter released during the SARS “pandemic” was intentionally contaminated and would have killed millions of people – adding to the hysteria.
Journalist Accuses WHO of Plan to Commit Mass Murder says that in 2009:
When a Czech scientist tested their seasonal flu vaccine, he found that they contained live H5N1 and live H3N2 viruses. Burgermeister’s charges include evidence that Baxter deliberately sent out 72 kilos of live bird flu virus, supplied by the WHO in the winter of 2009. She claims to have decisive proof that drug companies and government agencies are actively engaged in distributing deadly biological agents in order to trigger a pandemic. She has also prepared an injunction against forced vaccination, alleging mandatory vaccines will be purposely contaminated with diseases.
Burgermeister discusses her concerns about the COVID vaccine in the February video Jane Burgermeister is missing. Is she dead? Burgermeister shows that WHO also declared an Ebola pandemic this year and that one of the side effects of Merck’s Ebola vaccine is Ebola!! She says that the Merck HIV vaccine gives people HIV!! In the July 2010 video Jane Bürgermeister – Bloggers Persecuted. Declared Insane, Burgermeister discusses the persecution she and other whistleblowers are enduring for saving the world from Big Pharma. She compares this period to the Nazi persecution of 1933.
The scale of my charges is monumental, in the sense that … US government, pharmaceutical companies, banking cartels are operating together to push forward this MASS MURDER program under the guise of offering people a vaccinations to kill people – they don’t have to vaccinate everybody, they just need to vaccinate ENOUGH people to unleash this very virulent pandemic…the reason why people are mystified is because Mass Media consistently deflects attention from these crucial facts or put the spin on them to mislead people. – Jane Bürgermeister
When you look at the charges Burgermeister made against the WHO, Big Pharma, and the US government and various European governments in 2009 about the SARS “pandemic”, it becomes apparent that we have seen this movie before. Burgermeister saved the world in 2009 from a diabolical plan by Baxter to release a deadly SARS vaccine. Can anyone save the world now?
Freedom of Information and Choice in America
Tucker Carlson: Big Tech censors COVID-19 video featuring doctors says: “Social media giants pulled the video of doctors in lab coats talking about coronavirus research and they hid it from the public.”
Tucker points out the possible political motivations for blocking the information from America’s Frontline Doctors and access to HCQ. He says:
Yesterday, the news site Breitbart posted a video of a group of physicians giving a press conference about medical advance in the fight against COVID-19. Seventeen million people saw that video, the president retweeted it. This enraged Democrats. Any scientific advancement that reduces the suffering of Americans in an election year is a threat to Joe Biden’s campaign. So, they decided to pull that video off the internet.
Big Tech censored science. They pulled the video of doctors in lab coats talking about coronavirus research and they hid that video from the public…. You’re not allowed to watch these physicians on YouTube tonight, but we can show them to you here.
Ohio is banning the use of hydroxychloroquine in the treatment of COVID-19 beginning Thursday, according to the Ohio Department of Health. ODH Press Secretary Melanie Amato said the drug is not an effective treatment for COVID-19. She stated that Board of Pharmacy rule 4729:5-5-21 of the Administrative Code will go into effect Thursday, banning its distribution. The rule prohibits selling or dispensing hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine for the treatment or prevention of COVID-19. The ODH announcement comes just days after new information was made public about the success of hydroxychloroquine – actually calling it a cure for COVID-19.
The article adds:
The Ohio Department of Health purchased two million of doses of the drug earlier this year and later was given two millions more doses by an Ohio drug-maker. None of which has been dispensed to the public for use, say sources. About 22 states bought up large quantities of the drug – some 30 million doses, saying they wanted to have a supply on hand. Shortly thereafter, the Food and Drug Administration announced that hydroxychloroquine is not effective against COVID-19 and advised doctors not to prescribe it. Amato said the ODH will be returning the donated medication to the drug maker…Hydroxychloroquine has been around for decades. It is a quinoline medicine used to treat or prevent malaria. Numerous medical professionals believe it is effective in the treatment of COVID-19.
Cancel Culture: Big Tech Coup
The title of Dr. Gold’s book I Do Not Consent: My Fight Against Medical Cancel Culture comes from the Declaration of Independence which says, “Governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed”. The 85-page book is a quick read. It is an important record of the coup that took place in America (and the world) as Big Tech assumed the right to silence all opposition to the COVID agenda of the World Health Organization, Bill Gates, and Anthony Fauci.
Dr. Gold describes a Kafkaesque scenario in which esteemed journals like The Lancet and The New England Journal of Medicine committed medical fraud to vilify HCQ and to deny COVID patients access to this inexpensive CURE. While their fraudulent studies were later retracted, the retractions were not widely publicized and the stigma they put on HCQ remain. The result was that up to 100,000 COVID patients in America may have died unnecessarily because physicians who prescribed this inexpensive cure were threatened or pharmacies refused to fulfill the HCQ prescriptions. It was an unprecedented interference in the doctor-patient relationship.
As an attorney, Dr. Gold asked “Qui bono?” – who benefits? Her conclusion is that the official opposition to HCQ by Dr. Anthony Fauci and institutions like the NIH, CDC, and AMA is driven by politics and by a desire to support more expensive/profitable treatments like remdesivir and the COVID vaccine.
However, Big Tech’s suppression of information from doctors has been the most bizarre. The Tech Titans kept more Americans from seeing the July 27 press conference of America’s Frontline Doctors after it went viral – the most viral video in history – reaching about 20 million people. They have banned tweets by the president of the United States and information from Dr. Scott Atlas, the new Coronavirus Health Advisor.
Big Tech is denying the American people access to vital health information from credible sources. So, they are certainly not operating in our best interests. Whom do the Tech Titans serve? They say they are banning any information that violates the position of the World Health Organization. That is problematic for many reasons including:
- Violation of First Amendment: Freedom of Speech and Freedom of the Press is the foundation of our democracy and is protected by the First Amendment. Why are American companies following the guidelines of unelected globalist officials instead of the US Constitution?
- Conflict of Interest: The WHO is funded (and controlled) primarily by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Gates (not a doctor) has said that the world cannot go fully back to normal until almost everyone get his a rushed, expensive, poorly tested, unprecedented gene-altering vaccine from which he will profit massively. So, when the Tech Titans deny Americans access to information from physicians and government officials who support better options, they are surviving Gates profit motives.
- Conflicting Information: The WHO has changed its position on the COVID lockdown 180 degrees several times. Various WHO officials have publicly endorsed widely different positions on COVID policies. So, which WHO policies is Big Tech enforcing and why when it censors doctors and elected representatives??
- WHO Not Infallible: In 2009 WHO declared SARS a “global pandemic”. However, it was later discovered that SARS was not a pandemic and WHO officials were on the take from Big Pharma.
Reining In Big Tech
Children’s Health Defense Legal Team Led by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Sues Facebook, “Fact-Checkers”, Zuckerberg for Government-Sponsored Censorship, False Disparagement and Wire-Fraud reports that in August 2020:
Children’s Health Defense (CHD) filed a lawsuit on Monday in San Francisco Federal Court charging Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, and three fact-checking companies with censoring truthful public health posts and fraudulently misrepresenting and defaming CHD. CHD, a non-profit watchdog group exposing wrongdoing and corruption in pharmaceutical and Telecom companies and public health agencies including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), has also sued the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for wireless health concerns.
Republicans and Democrats Find a Point of Agreement: Big Tech Is Too Powerful is a Wall Street Journal article that points out: “The unified anger over the reach of Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google could signal future action by Congress.” Google, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube have been increasingly blocking access to popular websites, videos, and other online content.
“Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) proposed three solutions to Silicon Valley’s censorship practices: regulation, antitrust, and policing big tech’s fraud during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. Sen. Cruz held a hearing on big tech censorship and proposed three dynamic solutions to the Silicon Valley’s censorship practices, contending that the big tech companies have more power than Standard Oil or the old AT&T telephone monopoly.
Cruz three solutions include:
- Amending Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act
- Antitrust measures to address big tech’s dominant status on the Internet.
- Addressing potential cases of fraud and deception.
The Texas Republican suggested that they could amend Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which regulates social media companies such as Facebook, Google, and Twitter as neutral platforms, although these companies have decided to make editorial and political decisions regarding content on their platforms. For instance, Facebook and its subsidiary Instagram decided to define the “truthiness” on the alleged dangers of vaccines and subsequently banned anti-vaccine content on their platforms.
The John Birch site points out:
Internet censorship by Big Tech companies threatens free speech, and it is growing increasingly common and politically-motivated. Congress and the President must put an end to this by repealing or amending Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act and rejecting any “free” trade agreement that enables Big Tech censorship. They must enact any of the following bills: S. 4534, S. 1914, S. 3983, and H.R. 4027.
Big Tech censorship on the internet is threatening free speech and internet freedom, and Congress and +the President must act to put an end to this…. Why is Big Tech getting away with this? An important reason is Section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act (CDA). This provision gives website providers legal immunity for any obscene content posted by their users. It does so by treating these providers as “neutral public forums” as opposed to a “publisher or speaker.”
Urge Congress to put an end to this by reforming or repealing Section 230. Urge them to pass any of the following bills:
- S. 4534, the Online Freedom and Viewpoint Diversity Act
- S. 1914, the Ending Support for Internet Censorship Act
- S. 3983, the Limiting Section 230 Immunity to Good Samaritans Act
- H.R. 4027, the Stop the Censorship Act. Urge the President to continue the push to counter Big Tech censorship.
Additionally, urge both Congress and the President to reject all “trade agreements” and other treaties that threaten national sovereignty, including the USMCA. Above all, urge them all to abide by the Constitution when making policy on Big Tech, as with every other policy matter.
