Americans Don’t Believe Joe Biden’s Data
Despite positive economic indicators reported by the Biden administration, such as brisk spending, reduced inflation from its peak, solid GDP growth, and historically low unemployment rates, a significant portion of Americans remain skeptical about the administration’s performance. This skepticism is reflected in opinion surveys where a vast majority express dissatisfaction with President Biden’s handling of the economy. Critics argue that the statistical measures used to showcase economic health are misleading, as they often overlook broader issues such as workforce participation rates and the real impact of inflation on everyday expenses. The article suggests that the disconnect between official statistics and public perception may stem from the administration’s failure to address underlying economic challenges, leading to a credibility crisis for the government’s economic narrative.

‘A War for Our Minds’: Journalists Warn of Vast Propaganda, Censorship Network Unlike Any Before in Human History
Journalists and experts at a U.S. Senate roundtable discussion, hosted by Sen. Ron Johnson, highlighted the unprecedented scale of propaganda and censorship in the age of information warfare. Lara Logan, a journalist formerly with CBS News, emphasized that the current era is marked by a war for our minds, facilitated by advanced technology, unlike any period in human history. The discussion pointed out that a vast censorship network, including government agencies, mainstream media, and nonprofits, suppresses non-establishment perspectives on COVID-19 and other critical issues. This network is accused of manipulating information to justify certain actions and silence dissenting voices, contributing to a potential shift towards a totalitarian society. The roundtable also addressed the role of nonprofit organizations in stifling free speech under the guise of preventing misinformation and protecting democracy. The participants argued for the need to recognize and combat this extensive propaganda and censorship apparatus to preserve free thought and democratic values.

Poll: Almost a Third of Americans Say the First Amendment Goes ‘Too Far’
A poll conducted by the Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression (FIRE) reveals that nearly a third of Americans believe the First Amendment goes “too far” in the rights it guarantees. The survey, in partnership with the Polarization Research Lab (PRL) at Dartmouth College, involved 1,000 Americans and found that over two-thirds think America is headed in the wrong direction regarding free speech and expression. Only 25% of respondents felt the right to free speech was “very” or “completely” secure. When asked about allowing public speech that espouses beliefs they find offensive, more than half disagreed with allowing such speech in their community. Additionally, 69% opposed a local college allowing a professor who holds such opinions to teach, and over a quarter believed someone expressing the offensive opinion should be fired from their job. These findings indicate a significant portion of the population may be inclined towards supporting increased censorship, highlighting concerns about the future of free speech in America.

Censorship Literally Cannot Work
The article argues against the effectiveness of censorship in the digital era, where a multitude of information sources exists beyond the traditional gatekeepers of newspapers and TV. It posits that attempts to control public discourse through censorship are doomed to fail due to the inherent complexity of truth-seeking and the impossibility of any one entity possessing infallible knowledge. The piece critiques the idea that a centralized authority could effectively filter misinformation and disinformation without bias, highlighting the dangers of such power being misused for political or personal gain. It emphasizes that truth emerges from an open and critical discourse, where ideas can be freely challenged and refined. The article concludes that censorship, rather than guiding society towards truth, is more likely to hinder the discovery process and stifle the free exchange of ideas essential for a healthy democratic society.

Cruz, GOP senators double down on anti-central bank digital currency legislation
Senate Republicans, led by Senator Ted Cruz, are intensifying efforts to restrict the Federal Reserve’s ability to create a central bank digital currency (CBDC), potentially making it a significant issue for the 2024 presidential campaign. They argue that a CBDC could enable the federal government to monitor Americans’ financial activities and potentially limit access to funds. The Biden administration has authorized the Fed to research the feasibility of a CBDC to improve payment systems, but no decision has been made to implement one. Cruz’s proposed legislation, the Central Bank Digital Currency Anti-Surveillance State Act, asserts that the Federal Reserve lacks the authority to issue a CBDC to Americans without congressional approval. This bill aligns with House Majority Whip Tom Emmer’s similar act and is supported by various advocacy groups. Critics fear that a CBDC could lead to surveillance of personal spending habits, drawing parallels with China’s digital yuan and its implications for privacy and freedom.

Federal judge rules $1.7 trillion spending bill passed by Congress in 2022 is unconstitutional
A federal judge in Lubbock, Texas, ruled that the $1.7 trillion government funding bill passed in 2022 was unconstitutional due to lawmakers voting by proxy under a pandemic-era rule, rather than in person. This decision came in response to a lawsuit filed by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, a Republican, who sought to block a provision of the funding bill related to the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, which requires employers to provide reasonable accommodations for pregnant workers. The judge, Wesley Hendrix, appointed by former President Trump, issued a limited ruling that specifically blocked the law from being enforced against the state as an employer. Paxton’s lawsuit argued that the federal spending package was unconstitutionally passed because over half of the House of Representatives were not physically present to provide a quorum, yet they still voted by proxy. The ruling has sparked discussions on the constitutionality of proxy voting and its implications for future legislation.


 

‘Stunning Act of Scientific Censorship’: Journal Retracts Peer-Reviewed Study Critiquing COVID-19 Vaccine
The journal Cureus retracted a peer-reviewed paper that provided an extensive analysis of COVID-19 mRNA vaccine trial data and post-injection injuries, and called for a global moratorium on the vaccines. Dr. Peter McCullough, one of the paper’s authors, described the retraction as a significant act of scientific censorship. The paper had detailed potential serious harms of the vaccines, issues with vaccine control and processing, and reasons behind adverse events and vaccine inefficacy. Despite the paper being read over 350,000 times, concerns raised post-publication led to its retraction. The authors argued that the retraction was pressured by the bio-pharmaceutical complex to suppress critical vaccine safety information. They plan to appeal the decision and publish their findings elsewhere, highlighting the ongoing debate over vaccine safety and scientific censorship.
