It’s Official: House Defunds Biden Regime’s Censorship Schemes

News & Politics

The Biden regime’s censorship schemes are falling apart before our eyes.

President Joe Biden could soon find himself unable to exploit taxpayer dollars to fund his anti-free speech initiatives now that the House passed three major spending bills with zero funding for the censorship of Americans.

On Friday, the Republican-led House of Representatives passed three appropriations bills — H.R. 8771, H.R. 8752 and H.R. 8774 — which defund the censorship acts of the departments of State, Homeland Security, and Defense, all of which are heavily involved in the Censorship Industrial Complex.

The passage of these bills constitutes major free speech victories and comes after House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) and House Appropriations Committee Chairman Tom Cole (R-OK) pledged to make the First Amendment a key issue to the 118th Congress.

Rep. Mario Díaz-Balart (R-FL), the chairman of the State and Foreign Operations Appropriations Subcommittee, led the charge to pass H.R. 8771 which blocks the Department of State from attacking U.S. media companies based on mis-, dis-, and mal-information. 

It also defunds activities that promote censorship and other conduct that targets advertisers of Big Tech companies and forces the Global Engagement Center to focus on foreign propaganda, rather than U.S.-based free speech.

From the Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee, led by Rep. Mark Amodei (R-NV) came H.R. 8752 which completely defunds the infamous Disinformation Governance Board.

The bill also prohibits the DHS from targeting Americans’ communications on mis-, dis- and mal-information, in addition to blocking the government entity from colluding with non-profit organizations for censorship-related activities.

Similarly, the Defense Appropriations Subcommitee led by Ken Calvert (R-CA) brought forth H.R. 8774 which bars the Pentagon from using taxpayer dollars for contracts with NewsGuard, a notorious leftist media ratings firm.

MRC Free Speech America has exposed NewsGuard for three consecutive years for granting grossly favorable ratings for leftist media, all while strangling right-leaning outlets with negative ratings.

Conservatives are under attack. Contact your representatives and demand that Big Tech be held to account to mirror the First Amendment while providing transparency, clarity on so-called “hate speech” and equal footing for conservatives.
