Are you tired of seeing your political posts covered up, censored, fact-checked, or just deleted from social media?
You’re not alone — but you might not believe who’s behind social media’s liberal censorship policy.

Many social media posts about “election disinformation” are being tracked, compiled — and censored — by none other than Joe Biden and his communications team.
The legal watchdog Judicial Watch started watching the social media crackdown after the election, which put many people in Facebook prison, or forced them to quit social media in frustration.
Judicial Watch filed a request to find out exactly who was behind this… and it found Biden’s paid lackeys.
At the front is the California Secretary of State’s office, headed by Democrat Alex Padilla.
“The state agency was surveilling, tracking, and seeking to censor the speech of Americans,” Judicial Watch said.
But when the group’s team of researchers started combing through the 540 pages of documents the office turned over, they couldn’t believe their eyes.
The ream of papers contained “misinformation briefings” emails that had been compiled by a firm called SKDK, which describes itself as a “strategic communications company.”

“There is no better place than SKDK if you are in need of strategic communications advice to manage a crisis, protect a brand, advocate an issue, or win an election,” its website says. And guess who SKDK’s website lists as its top political client in 2020: “Biden for President.”
That’s right. Biden’s strategic communications firm — which is dedicated to protecting a brand and winning an election — was working with the largest state government in the country to censor posts its firm didn’t like on social media.
Biden’s campaign basically censored your Facebook feed… and Judicial Watch found all the major social media companies like Facebook, Twitter, and Google’s YouTube to be censoring 2020 election posts.
Judicial Watch found that SKDK was monitoring any post about the election it didn’t like, then pressuring the companies to take down “election disinformation.”
In one of its emails in September 2020, SKDK bragged about getting President Donald Trump’s Twitter feed censored.
“Trump tweeted, ‘The big Unsolicited Ballot States should give it up NOW, before it is too late, and ask people to go to the Polling Booths and, like always before, VOTE. Otherwise, MAYHEM!!! Solicited Ballots (absentee) are OK,’” SKDK said, “and Twitter was quick to fact check and shared a link with info about how voting by mail is safe and secure.”

What is SKDK doing with the lists of names of individuals who posted “disinformation?” Is it turning them over to its other clients?
Is SKDK involved in Facebook’s decision to ban former president Donald Trump from its platform, which was renewed this week?
And why is a government office, headed by a Democrat who endorsed Biden, guiding social media to crack down on people’s free speech rights?
“There’s some concern that we’re going to get into the censorship business, which is not true. We support the First Amendment and freedom of speech,” Padilla said when he established the office.
Padilla set up the Office of Elections Cybersecurity in September 2018 — hardly enough time to affect the midterm elections. Obviously, Alex Padilla wanted to get the operation up and running in plenty of time for the 2020 presidential contest.
Law gave the newly formed office the creepy-sounding power to “monitor and counteract false or misleading information” online. The office was supposed to pay special attention if the post could “suppress voter participation” — which is how Democrats describe every voter integrity bill — or would cause the vague-sounding “confusion and disruption of the orderly and secure administration of elections.”
Even Padilla admitted it looks bad. “You don’t want a secretary of state or any, really, government official being in a position for them to say, ‘This specific narrative about a candidate is disinformation, and it should be taken down,'” he said back in 2018. “That would have “very quickly” become “a slippery slope,” and “problematic on many levels.”

But Padilla promised at the time that his office would “correct information, and — as appropriate — work with social media platforms and others to bring some of that information down.”
Now we know he’s only working with the president’s team to shut you up.
This is just the one instance we know. What else is Biden doing — directly, through his fellow Democrats, or with shell companies and fronts — to keep you from speaking… or take down your name if you won’t be quiet?
