Biden’s Online Speech Control Efforts Spark Greater Concerns In Light Of The Durham Report

Special Counsel John Durham’s inquiry into the FBI’s dissemination of false information regarding Russia and former President Trump nears its completion, prompting scrutiny of President Biden’s persistent endeavors to regulate online speech.

Uncertainties over Biden’s Oversight Raise Alarms, Constitutional Rights at Risk?

Market Competition as a Regulator of Business Practices

Harnessing the power of the free market, consumer choices become a driving force in holding businesses accountable for objectionable actions.

Congressional Actions to Protect Free Speech

The proposed legislation, such as the Protecting Free Speech from Government Interference Act, aims to prohibit government employees from coercing social media platforms for political purposes. 

While judicial interventions can strike down unconstitutional actions, congressional investigations and oversight are essential in ensuring accountability throughout the executive branch. 

Additionally, empowering Congress to invoke the Holman Rule would allow the reduction of pay for federal employees who prioritize political self-interest over serving the American people.
