Brighteon Media sues Google, Facebook, Twitter, NewsGuard, Homeland Security, Department of Defense, Global Engagement Center, ISD and others for globally-coordinated government-funded censorship collusion against Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, Natural News and Brighteon
By Mike Adams // May 27, 2024

Memorial Day, 2024: On the same day that we honor our ancestors and fallen soldiers who fought for the fundamental freedoms upon which our constitutional republic is based, we are filing suit against an array of Big Tech platforms, overseas NGOs and Big Government departments, all of which we assert have been deliberately weaponized to silence the free speech of Americans.

The lawsuit, filed in Federal court -- the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas (Austin Division) -- explains, "The United States has been helping identify, pay for, and facilitate private corporations’ suppression of Americans' free speech." The suit presents conclusive evidence that reveals U.S. government departments specifically naming Brighteon, Natural News and the Health Ranger for censorship targeting.

The lawsuit is filed as civil action 24-cv-00576, filed on 5/27/2024. It can be viewed at this link on Natural News servers.

The complaint lays out the global coordination of a vast censorship industrial complex involving government entities, Big Tech platforms and private NGOs such as the Institute for Strategic Dialogue, the Global Disinformation Index, and other similar entities. The suit also references ten "Joe Doe" defendants whose identities shall be revealed during discovery.

US government engaged in "censorship laundering" to silence the speech of Americans

In summary, the lawsuit asserts that the United States government, in violation of the United States Constitution, engaged in "censorship laundering" by colluding with (and helped fund) overseas organizations whose censorship directives were adopted by tech platforms to selectively silence the speech of certain Americans.

The speech targeted by this large censorship complex included:

- Speech favorable to Donald J. Trump.

- Speech critical of Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton or Trump's political adversaries.

- Speech that questions official COVID narratives, including demands for mandatory vaccines, masking, social distancing and forced quarantine measures, all of which have since been shown to lack rigorous scientific merit.

- Speech that promotes concepts of nutrition, natural medicine, herbal remedies, superfoods or food self-reliance such as home gardening, raw milk, permaculture and seed saving.

Jason Fyk, an expert consultant on the case, summarizes the severity and importance of this lawsuit as follows: "If we don't stop this, America will fall. That's the reality we must now accept."

Here's a quote I'm offering about this lawsuit, which can be freely used and attributed to me by any media:

"This lawsuit exhaustively documents and exposes the globally coordinated censorship industrial complex that has been unconstitutionally deployed against the American people, in direct violation of the First Amendment. It showcases the vast array of global players involved in 'censorship laundering,' including complicit Big Tech platforms such as Google and Facebook, powerful government institutions such as the Department of Defense, and overseas NGOs which maliciously engaged in the selective silencing of the speech of Americans, based entirely on the content of their speech."

X (formerly Twitter) is named in the suit due to Twitter's ongoing shadowbanning of the @HealthRanger account and its continued banning of any mention of Brighteon.com video links in Twitter posts.

The First Amendment of the Bill of Rights of the Constitution of the United States guarantees the right of free speech for all Americans, including speech that others may find offensive or distasteful. There is no power granted to the federal government that gives it the right to blacklist the voices of Americans merely because the government decides that it disagrees with such speech. Furthermore, using overseas NGOs or tech corporations as proxies does not absolve the federal government of its duty to protect and guarantee the First Amendment rights of all Americans.

As the lawsuit documents, the United States government used technically-enhanced powers intended to surveil or limit the speech of overseas terrorists and weaponized those powers against the American people, targeting millions of everyday Americans who were stating things the government did not want to be seen or heard. The weaponization of the government against the free speech liberties of the American people is precisely what the First Amendment was intended to prevent, and overturning this gross abuse of government/corporate collusion is exactly what this lawsuit is intended to achieve.

The following graphic summarizes some of the ties between US government departments, various NGOs and Big Tech platforms, all colluding to silence myself, Natural News, Brighteon and other related publishing properties, causing many years of direct financial harm, a substantial loss of audience and a lifetime of reputation damage:

In effect, through this mechanism, the United States federal government sought to utterly destroy myself and the various platforms in which I engage the public in free speech. Today's lawsuit gives notice to the government, Big Tech platforms and all involved NGOs that they will be held responsible for the extensive damage they have willfully inflicted, and that we will stand for the right of all Americans to speak freely, even if such speech criticizes government or corporate interests.
