Press TV knows from experience that there is no freedom of speech in the Biden administration

The First Amendment to the United States Constitution, adopted in 1791, states "Congress shall make no laws...abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press..."  The Constitution, America's basic law, ratified in 1789, had been seen as lacking basic protections for the individual citizen.  The Founding Fathers then adopted 10 Amendments, the Bill of Rights, to defend and guard the people from their government.


On June 22, 2121, according to the US Justice Department, "[the] United States Seize[d] Websites Used by the Iranian Islamic Radio and Television Union".  The Justice Department asserted that this was done pursuant to court order--yet neglected to name the court or the judge making such a decision.

Evidently, Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. believes he is an exceptional person, able to make or abridge laws and rights that abrogate constitutional guarantees and usurp the power of Congress.  This was always the charge that he and his party, the Democrats, had laid at the feet of his predecessor, Donald J. Trump.  To Joe Biden, Freedom of Speech and of the Press stops at the water's edge.

What's missing here?

A professional politician's change of heart?

According to the March 9, 2021 Politico (an American online political publication) , Joe Biden  said in a March 20, 2002 speech:  "'I believe that an improved relationship with Iran is in the naked self-interest of the United States and, I would presume to suggest, Iran’s interest as well,'" (At the time, he chaired the Senate Foreign Relations Committee).

No, context.

Philip Giraldi , a former CIA official, said that Jews/Zionists control US agencies that have anything to do with the Middle East (  This author echoed that remark in his analysis of the Treasury Department's sanctions program.  (  The American Herald Tribune, an online newspaper, had originally published that article but the US has twice seized and shut down that journal--as an Iranian organization!

Let's look at Biden’s principal Zebrews 

Secretary of the Treasury:  Janet Yellen

Attorney General:  Merrick Garland

Secretary of State:  Antony Blinken

Deputy Secretary of State:  Wendy Sherman

So, is there any wonder at the influence exerted to shut down Iran's broadcasting?  It certainly serves Israel's interests.  And, since Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube are all American companies and have worked to block Iran's message to the world, do America's Zebrews control them as well?  Remember, convicted spy Jonathan Pollard has said that a Jew's true loyalty is to Israel, not the country of which he is a citizen.

Jews form 2% of the US population.  Why do they control the Biden Administration?  Family ties?  According to the Times of Israel, "...we’d be remiss to overlook President-elect Joe Biden’s Jewish relatives — of which there are many. In fact, all three of his kids married into Jewish families..."  Biden's Vice President, Kamala Harris, has a husband, Doug Emhoff, who is a Jew.  And did Donald Trump support Israel so strongly because his daughter Ivanka converted after her marriage to Jared Kushner, an outrageous Zionist?

The First Amendment also says "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion..."  But someone has.  Isn't it past time to stop them and implement the Bill of Rights?
