Joe Biden’s plan to censor the internet just took this scary turn

Jan 12, 2024

Joe Biden weaponized the government as his main plan to win a second term.

Biden won in 2020 with the help of social media censorship, and Democrats hope to rerun that playbook this year.

And Joe Biden’s plan to censor the internet just took this scary turn.

Liberals don’t believe in free speech.

The modern Left uses the claim of needing to fight “misinformation” online to set up a censorship regime that suppresses any viewpoint or news story that either embarrasses Democrats or contradicts their political narrative.

Joe Biden publicly demanded Elon Musk face investigations after he bought Twitter and rolled back the site’s censorship policies.

In short order, Musk faced investigations from the Department of Justice and Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) into his various business practices.

Biden SEC expands tactics used against Musk to Rumble

Biden’s weaponized government is now targeting Rumble, the free speech alternative to YouTube that hosts podcasts from creators like Donald Trump Jr., Dan Bongino, Russell Brand, and others, for destruction.

WIRED confirmed that the SEC has an active investigation into the platform. 

“The SEC confirmed its investigation involving Rumble in response to a public records request that WIRED first filed in November, seeking documents related to the company. The agency denied WIRED’s request on the grounds that related documents were part of an “active and ongoing” investigation. Confirmation of the probe follows public allegations that Rumble inflated key user metrics, which the company denies,” WIRED exclusively reported.

“We have confirmed with Division of Enforcement staff that the investigation from which you seek records is still active and ongoing,” assistant general counsel for litigation and administrative practice at the SEC Melinda Hardy told WIRED.

The investigation allegedly stems from an April 2023 report filed by Culper Research, which claimed Rumble inflated its monthly user totals. 

Rumble responds

Rumble’s founder and CEO, Chris Pavlovski, responded to the WIRED report, claiming these were bogus charges filed by a group that hoped to make money shorting Rumble’s stock by creating the impression of deception by roping the SEC into investigating the company.

“A short seller creates a bogus report and sends it to the SEC. The SEC investigates the bogus report. Then the short seller talks to the media to get a story about how the SEC is investigating the report that started with him. The media happily writes the story,” Pavlovski posted on X. “The report is bogus, but that doesn’t matter—it’s all to get investors to sell the stock so the short seller profits.”

The Biden administration is likely happy to play along as the 2016 and 2020 elections showed that unless Democrats can control the flow of information to the voters, they can’t win elections.
