The American Center for Law and Justice has sued the administration of President Biden for refusing to answer Freedom of Information Act questions about the crisis it has allowed to develop at the southern border.
Article by Bob Unruh from WND.
The organization earlier had filed a request for information regarding the situation, and sought records about what actions are being taken to protect unaccompanied minors and women from human trafficking and/or sexual exploitation, what is being done to discourage undocumented migrants, and what actions are being taken to protect Americans from “crime, terror, drugs, and human trafficking.”
“And why did the Biden administration cancel – or ‘postpone’ – Operation Talon? Operation Talon was the Trump administration’s organized effort to target and deport known sex offenders living in the United States illegally. If there’s a reason it was canceled, the American people deserve to know it. And if there was not a reason, well, we deserve to know that, too,” the ACLJ reported.
However, the organization said, “the Biden standard when it comes to the challenges it faces seems to be ‘ignore it until it goes away.'”
“We’ve received no cooperation. At first, the Biden team acknowledged receipt of our FOIA and asked for an additional 10 days to comply, citing a heavy volume of FOIA requests coming in – we don’t doubt it – but that was the last we heard. Our FOIA was sent on April 7th, and it certainly seems they have no intention of working with us of their own volition. By the time they did try to send a noncompliant reply, it was too little too late. We had already filed our lawsuit.”
The lawsuit charges: “[T]he defendants [Biden agencies] have failed to notify plaintiff of any determination about whether they will comply with plaintiff’s FOIA request, including the scope of records the defendants intend to produce, or the scope of records they intend to withhold, and the reasons for any such determination – all clearly required by the FOIA.”
In the ACLJ report, Jordan Sekulow explained, “It seems like the Biden administration had barely moved into the White House when migrants began surging our southern border in droves. It shouldn’t be surprising, of course, as President Biden halted construction on President Trump’s wall and promised to reverse the Trump administration’s immigration policies – the ones that were working – essentially flinging open the doors and saying, ‘Come on in.’ And they have been, in unprecedented numbers.”
His report specifically cites confirmation that “two known terrorists” were apprehended at the border.
But he notes the press release about the situation “has mysteriously vanished.”
Further, there are videos “of toddlers being dropped over the wall from heights that should have stopped the heart of any parent watching…”
Still, Biden officials refuse to admit that it is a crisis.
The legal action also seeks information about Biden’s insistence there’s no “crisis,” as well as the details of the deleted press release.
The ACLJ said, “Now a federal judge will force the president’s team to cooperate with our records demands. The crisis at the border is real, it is happening right now; and if President Biden does not take swift, serious action to stop it now, it might soon be too late.”
‘The Purge’ by Big Tech targets conservatives, including us
Just when we thought the Covid-19 lockdowns were ending and our ability to stay afloat was improving, censorship reared its ugly head.
For the last few months, NOQ Report, Conservative Playbook, and the American Conservative Movement have appealed to our readers for assistance in staying afloat through Covid-19 lockdowns. The downturn in the economy has limited our ability to generate proper ad revenue just as our traffic was skyrocketing. We had our first sustained stretch of three months with over a million visitors in November, December, and January, but February saw a dip.
It wasn’t just the shortened month. We expected that. We also expected the continuation of dropping traffic from “woke” Big Tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, but it has actually been much worse than anticipated. Our Twitter account was banned. Both of our YouTube accounts were banned. Facebook “fact-checks” everything we post. Spotify canceled us. Medium canceled us. Apple canceled us. Why? Because we believe in the truth prevailing, and that means we will continue to discuss “taboo” topics.
The 2020 presidential election was stolen. You can’t say that on Big Tech platforms without risking cancellation, but we’d rather get cancelled for telling the truth rather than staying around to repeat mainstream media’s lies. They have been covering it up since before the election and they’ve convinced the vast majority of conservative news outlets that they will be harmed if they continue to discuss voter fraud. We refuse to back down. The truth is the truth.
The lies associated with Covid-19 are only slightly more prevalent than the suppression of valid scientific information that runs counter to the prescribed narrative. We should be allowed to ask questions about the vaccines, for example, as there is ample evidence for concern. One does not have to be an “anti-vaxxer” in order to want answers about vaccines that are still considered experimental and that have a track record in a short period of time of having side-effects, including death. One of our stories about the Johnson & Johnson “vaccine” causing blood clots was “fact-checked” and removed one day before the government hit the brakes on it. These questions and news items are not allowed on Big Tech which is just another reason we are getting canceled.
There are more topics that they refuse to allow. In turn, we refuse to stop discussing them. This is why we desperately need your help. The best way NOQ, CP, and ACM readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We are pacing to be short by about $3700 per month in order to maintain operations.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. We had 5,657,724 sessions on our website from November, 2020, through February, 2021. Our intention is to elevate that to higher levels this year by focusing on a strategy that relies on free speech rather than being beholden to progressive Big Tech companies.
During that four-month stretch, Twitter and Facebook accounted for about 20% of our traffic. We are actively working on operating as if that traffic is zero, replacing it with platforms that operate more freely such as Gab, Parler, and others. While we were never as dependent on Big Tech as most conservative sites, we’d like to be completely free from them. That doesn’t mean we will block them, but we refuse to be beholden to companies that absolutely despise us simply because of our political ideology.
We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
