JUST IN: US Supreme Court Justice Kentanji Brown Jackson Just Defended The US...

This afternoon, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) tweeted about today's US Supreme Court case (Murthy v. Missouri) that involves several plaintiffs, including The Gateway Pundit, who have been harmed by censorship by the government and big tech.

In his tweet, Senator Rand Paul wrote:

Today, SCOTUS heard Murthy v. Missouri, the most consequential free speech case in U.S. history. This isn't just about social media companies; it's a critical examination of government overreach. The Biden administration and FBI's efforts to influence Big Tech into silencing dissent tramples on the 1st Amendment. Our focus must be on preventing government censorship, not compelling private entities to act as censors. This case could redefine our free speech.

Joe Biden's latest addition to the US Supreme Court, Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson, however, had a different take on the significance of the free speech case. Some might say that Justice Ketanji Brown, during oral arguments, dismissed the First Amendment as a roadblock for the government and big tech in their efforts to collude against Americans to censor their free speech.

In stark contrast, US Justice Alito argued that the US government and big tech should not be colluding to censor the speech simply because they don't agree with it.

Justice Alito to the defense lawyer: "When I see the White House and Federal officials repeatedly saying that Facebook and the Federal government should be partners… regular meetings, constant pestering… Wow, I cannot imagine Federal officials taking that approach to print media."
