More FBI corruption? Facebook admits to suppressing Hunter Biden Laptop Story per FBI's request

Published in Blog on August 27, 2022 by Jakob Fay

Earlier this week, Facebook Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg admitted that the FBI pressured Facebook into suppressing the Hunter Biden laptop story during the 2020 presidential elections.

During an interview with Joe Rogan, Zuckerberg revealed the Federal Bureau of Investigation approached the popular social media company and warned them of so-called “Russian propaganda” shortly before the Hunter Biden laptop story broke.

The news that leaked content from the former vice-president’s son’s laptop compromised Joe Biden and sullied Hunter’s reputation was infamously stamped out in the weeks leading up to the election. After the election, the story was corroborated; some voters later confessed they would have reconsidered their support for Biden if they had known important news stories social media had suppressed - including the Hunter Biden laptop story.

“I mean, basically, the background here is the FBI, I think, basically came to us, some folks on our team, and was like, ‘Hey, just so you know, like, you should be on high alert,” Zuckerberg explained. “There was, we thought that there was a lot of Russian propaganda in the 2016 election. We have it on notice that basically, there’s about to be some kind of dump that’s similar to that. So just be vigilant.”

He admitted that “fewer people saw [the story] than would have otherwise.”

“We just kind of thought, hey, look, if the FBI, which I still view is a legitimate institution in this country, it’s like very professional law enforcement,” he continued, “they come to us and tell us that we need to be on guard about something, then I want to take that seriously.”

For the FBI, details of how the department encouraged Facebook to censor free speech during a hugely important presidential election could not have come at a worse time. In light of recent controversies, trust in the FBI is faltering. This revelation only reinforces popular distrust of the bureau. 

It really is shocking that the federal government would actively seek to influence the outcome of a presidential election by restricting, even if indirectly, free speech. 

The best way to end or at least rein in these agencies and departments that have become a threat to our freedoms is to call a Convention of States. Article V of the Constitution enables the states to call a convention for proposing amendments that would reinforce Washington’s checks and balances and curb its rampant corruption.

The time to act has come. To get involved, sign the Convention of States petition below!

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention to proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington DC.

I support Convention of States; a national movement to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of an Article V convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

I ask that you support Convention of States and consider becoming a co-sponsor. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:
