As part of a lawsuit seeking to uncover the Biden administration’s sweeping collusion with Big Tech firms to rig U.S. elections for the Democratic Party and to ensure that Americans can’t have open and honest discussion of their personal health decisions, it has come out that the CDC contacted Facebook to target discussion of ‘Covid misinformation’ that in some cases turned out to be entirely substantiated.
“Over 50 officials in President Joe Biden’s administration across a dozen agencies have been involved with efforts to pressure Big Tech companies to crack down on alleged misinformation, according to documents released on Aug. 31,” the Epoch Times reported.
“Senior officials in the U.S. government, including White House lawyer Dana Remus, deputy assistant to the president Rob Flaherty, and onetime White House senior COVID-19 adviser Andy Slavitt, have been in touch with one or more major social media companies to try to get the companies to tighten rules on allegedly false and misleading information on COVID-19, and take action against users who violate the rules, the documents show,” the report added.
The following email uncovered in the lawsuit was highlighted by Vince Coglianese, who is a WMAL host and Daily Caller editor:
A Facebook employee (name redacted) contacted the CDC on July 28, 2021 seeking assistance with policing conversations that American citizens were having about Covid-19 and their government’s response to the pandemic. The subject header is “RE: FB Misinformation Claims_Help Debunking.”

“Great!” the unnamed Facebook employee said. “I’ll let [redacted] gather some more claims and before we set a date, I’ll reach out on topics so you can get the right folks on the call.”
“Yes, we would love to do that,” a CDC employee replied. “I do think getting the claims several days in advance will be critical to being sure we have what you need.”
“Thank you so much, [redacted],” the Facebook employee replied. “[Redacted] and I have been talking about in addition to our weekly meetings, doing a monthly misinfo/debunking meeting, with maybe claim topics communicated a few days prior so that you can bring in the matching experts and chat casually for 30 minutes or so. is that something you’d be interested in?”
“[Redacted] – Below is some details from the team,” the CDC employee replied. “I know it is a lot, does it give you what you need? In terms of the global database question at the end, I included some VAERS background below. This page adds more context: Selected Adverse Events Reported After Covid-19 Vaccination, CDC. But I wasn’t able to obtain recommended database. Let me know if this doesn’t work!”
The following sections are provided from the CDC’s email thread stemming to a July 26 email.
The first point is about the spike protein in Covid-19 vaccines being “dangerous/cytotoxic.”
The thrust of the CDC’s response is that the mRNA vaccines teach cells to create a “harmless spike protein.” This section is relatively straightforward, except as it may pertain to new peer-reviewed research on the “excess risk” of Covid-19 vaccines as will follow below.
The second point is on Guillain-Barre Syndrome, which the CDC attests is a rare side effect associated with the J&J/Janssen Covid-19 vaccine. The third point is on heart inflammation. This is where the CDC runs into trouble.
The CDC concedes that “confirmed cases have occurred” and “mostly in male adolescents and young adults age 16 years or older,” and that it was “actively monitoring” these reports. Then, it recommends that: “Getting vaccinated is the best way to protect yourself and your family from Covid-19.”
The Covid-19 vaccines do not prevent infection or transmission of the virus; therefore, getting vaccinated does not “protect” others. Furthermore, a new peer-reviewed study in the Journal Vaccine confirms that there is “excess risk” posed by mRNA vaccines to patients, including the adverse side effect of myocarditis/pericarditis.
A landmark peer-reviewed study appears to confirm that the concerns that many patients had about the mRNA vaccines were well-founded.
“In the Moderna trial, the excess risk of serious AESIs (15.1 per 10,000 participants) was higher than the risk reduction for COVID-19 hospitalization relative to the placebo group (6.4 per 10,000 participants),” the study found.
“In the Pfizer trial, the excess risk of serious AESIs (10.1 per 10,000) was higher than the risk reduction for COVID-19 hospitalization relative to the placebo group (2.3 per 10,000 participants),” the study added.
The study was published on ScienceDirect on August 31, 2022. The authors include researchers from Stanford University, the University of Maryland, and UCLA. The study provides the following list of confirmed adverse events (or side effects) of the respective mRNA vaccines. It also provides the risk ratios versus Covid-19 (over 1 is a factor increase, under 1 is a factor decrease). This is the list for Pfizer:
And the following are the adverse events for Moderna:
The study also provided known complications for Covid-19.
“Although the randomized trials offer high level evidence for evaluating causal effects, the sparsity of their data necessitates that harm-benefit analyses also consider observational studies,” the authors state. “Since their emergency authorization in December 2020, hundreds of millions of doses of Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines have been administered and post-authorization observational data offer a complementary opportunity to study AESIs. Post-authorization observational safety studies include cohort studies (which make use of medical claims or electronic health records) and disproportionality analyses (which use spontaneous adverse event reporting systems).”
“In July 2021, the FDA reported detecting four potential adverse events of interest: pulmonary embolism, acute myocardial infarction, immune thrombocytopenia, and disseminated intravascular coagulation following Pfizer’s vaccine based on medical claims data in older Americans.” the researchers add. “Three of these four serious adverse event types would be categorized as coagulation disorders, which is the Brighton AESI category that exhibited the largest excess risk in the vaccine group in both the Pfizer and Moderna trials. FDA stated it would further investigate the findings but at the time of our writing has not issued an update.”
Thus, given the extraordinarily low risk of Covid-19 mortality and serious complications from Covid-19 for healthy young adults in particular, the CDC’s “Covid misinformation” team appears to have given Facebook misinformation about the vaccines. This misinformation was utilized by Big Tech companies like Facebook as purported justification to suppress open and honest conversation about serious matters that affect public policy, as well as the very health and lives of young adults.
If the lawsuit is successful, the American people can look forward to getting more transparency from Big Tech companies that are supposed to work for them and not unconstitutionally police their conversations on behalf of the United States government.
