The complaint alleged that the U.S. government was not only threatening and coercing social media companies to censor Americans on social media, but they were also working with social media companies to accomplish that goal.
Judges Edith Clement, Jennifer Elrod, and Don Willett held that the federal government violated the First Amendment by causing social media platforms to block posts on various topics:***
“We find that the White House, acting in concert with the Surgeon General’s office, likely (1) coerced the platforms to make their moderation decisions by way of intimidating messages and threats of adverse consequences, and (2) significantly encouraged the platforms’ decisions by commandeering their decision-making processes, both in violation of the First Amendment.”
While the ruling enjoined the White House, the Surgeon General, Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and the FBI, it also removed also some agencies from the order. These included the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency and the State Department. The judges ruled that those agencies were “permissibly exercising government speech.”
“In the end, this is a big win against censorship because it upholds the tenets of free speech as specified in the First Amendment,” said Dr. Pierre Kory, FLCCC chief medical officer and Dr. Paul Marik, FLCCC chief scientific officer. “We believe the social media censorship experienced by the FLCCC has cost tens of thousands of people their lives. Users of social media were essentially blinded to the rigorous science supporting proven therapeutics for COVID-19 disease. The strong-armed tactics of the federal government were what ultimately doomed the lives of so many. In this case, as in others, censorship had fatal consequences.”
*** These were the same judges who, last week, reversed and remanded a lower court ruling dismissing the suit of three doctors suing the FDA for damages resulting from its public campaign against ivermectin—exceeding its authority.
Though COVID cases are rising in America, the Times writes that, “the good news is that there are vaccines and treatments that reduce risks from all major viruses likely to circulate this season.”
Is this really good news?
A review of the Times’ guide in The Defender cautions that “None of these experts in the Times’ article addressed any of the potential safety risks posed by these vaccines.”
In the Defender article, our Dr. Pierre Kory goes even further. “We simply do not know enough about the COVID-19 vaccines to make such broad recommendations,” he said. “Additionally, COVID-19 is highly treatable in children and poses very little risk to a healthy child.”
Nirav Shah, M.D., J.D., principal deputy director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommended that Americans receive the trio of shots for COVID, RSV and the flu. Then he said this: “Do you want to see your grandpa … [and] grandma? Are you really sure you’re not going to give COVID to them?”
Dr. Kory responded to Shah’s guilt-shaming ploy, saying “There is so little data available on the safety of the COVID-19 vaccine in children that to give blanket recommendations like Shah is doing creates an unnecessary risk to children’s health.”
Drs. Pierre Kory, Paul Marik and Joe Varon joined host Betsy Ashton for a detailed review of the FLCCC’s latest protocol, Sepsis Care: A Guide to Inpatient and Outpatient Treatment.
The doctors discussed how to best manage treatment and recovery. Sepsis is a life-threatening medical condition that occurs when an infection triggers an extreme response in the body. Sepsis is related to more than 1 in 5 deaths globally.
It is estimated that annually:
• At least 1.7 million American adults develop sepsis.
• At least 350,000 adults who develop sepsis die during hospitalization or are discharged to hospice.
• 30% of patients who die in hospitals had sepsis during their hospital stay.

In a new interview, Dr. Marik said, “I think everyone on the planet should take vitamin D. There’s a linear relationship between vitamin D deficiency and cancer. And the further you go away from the equator, the less UVB you get from the sun, the greater your risk of cancer. This has been well established.”
He also shared that there is ample science to support the need for everyone to ensure that
