- Missouri AG Eric Schmitt is suing the Biden administration for colluding with social media companies to censor on behalf of the US government.

Intelligence assets are used to do the dirty bidding of our government, whenever they want to hide their fingerprints. Consider the role of National Endowment for Democracy (NED) and their connection to the CIA in destabilizing foreign governments toward regime change and color revolutions.
- The US and its NATO allies are currently engaged in a proxy war against Russia using Ukraine.
