Jen Psaki had an uncanny ability to lie effortlessly that served her well as Biden’s PressSec. Unfortunately, it’s not a skill she can really use in a sworn deposition.
It’s one thing to dismiss Republican talking points. It’s another thing to contradict the evidence of direct contact between big tech and the White House that has been uncovered in discovery.
Pelosi (and Biden’s DOJ) tried to fight the deposition, or at least move it to a friendlier court, but those efforts were in vain.
“Ms. Psaki’s effort to eliminate or delay her deposition in this action had failed because of the swift action of two judges in widely dispersed courts, one in Virginia and one in Louisiana, and by the implausibility of her reasons for not testifying as to Federal efforts to censure social media that made quick resolution possible,” John J. Vecchione, senior counsel for the New Civil Liberties Alliance, said in a press statement. NCLA supports the lawsuit against Psaki.
Republican Attorneys General Eric Schmitt of Missouri and Jeff Landry of Louisiana first filed the lawsuit in May, accusing top-ranking government officials of working with the giant social media companies Meta, Twitter and YouTube “under the guise of combating misinformation” in order to achieve greater censorship.
In October, Judge Doughty ruled that Psaki and other high-ranking administration officials including Dr. Fauci should be deposed.
“After finding documentation of a collusive relationship between the Biden Administration and social media companies to censor free speech, we immediately filed a motion to get these officials under oath,” Schmitt said in reaction to the October 21 ruling. “It is high time we shine a light on this censorship enterprise and force these officials to come clean to the American people, and this ruling will allow us to do just that. We’ll keep pressing for the truth.”–FoxNews
Why is Biden’s DOJ so interested in this case?
Simple — if allegations of collusion between Big Tech censorship and elected Democrats can be proven, this becomes a direct violation of the First Amendment on the part of the Democrats.
That opens up a world of consequences for the Democrats, but it also opens up a world of trouble for the Big Tech companies that were acting on Biden’s behalf to silence and suppress the free speech of anyone who dared contradict the official talking points of Biden and the administrative state. No amount of Section 230 protection could shield Big Tech at that point.
Considering the world of financial trouble Zuckerberg’s empire is enduring at the moment, this would be incredibly bad timing for him to face that kind of culpability. It also puts a serious dent in the ‘Defender of Democracy’ brand Democrats are trying to build for themselves.
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
