“Election denier.” “Science denier.” “Climate-change denier.” “Conspiracy theorist.” “Hate speech.” “Fake news.” “Disinformation.” “Misinformation.” “Malinformation.”
A bizarre new lexicon has been conjured up by America’s elites, the sole purpose of which is to discredit and ridicule – and if at all possible, censor entirely – speech that doesn’t support their increasingly dark and deranged agenda.
In the greatest of ironies, the nation once boasting the most robust culture of freedom of speech and the press, undergirded by the strongest constitutional protections for those rights, is now ground zero for a total war on free expression.
How could this happen in the United States of America?
One fundamental reason lies at the very heart of today’s radical and unprecedented compulsion to crush free speech: The elites – from the permanent “ruling class” in Washington D.C. (aka “the Deep State”) to their propaganda ministry called the “mainstream media” to the Big Tech oligarchs controlling the internet to Big Pharma and other corporate giants, all obsessed with ever-increasing power and wealth – are all lying to Americans continually.
It follows, then, that truthful speech, especially the kind that serves to expose, undermine and annihilate the elites' self-serving agendas, constitutes the greatest threat to their reign, which in turn compels them to crush dissent at all costs – the very essence of totalitarianism.
Whether the forbidden speech comes from a courageous public official, a genuine journalist, a principled doctor, a concerned parent at a school board meeting or a Christian praying outside an abortion clinic, the response of the ruling class is the same: Demonization, suppression and persecution.
Thus are moral, honest Americans daily smeared as “violent extremists,” “domestic terrorists,” “white supremacists” and “ultra-MAGA insurrectionists,” or – as Joe Biden characterized tens of millions of Republicans during a major speech last summer – “semi-fascists.” Biden’s blanket attack on the great American middle class echoes Hillary Clinton’s on-camera remarks just prior to the 2016 election, when she described a very large number of Americans (i.e., those opposing her) as “deplorable” and “irredeemable” – one of the rare times when leaders of the ruling class speak publicly about how they really feel about regular Americans.
Sometimes, as with many of the approximately 1,000 Americans arrested after the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol riot, decent people are unjustly incarcerated as in brutal Third World dictatorships, simply for holding – and expressing – political views condemned by the ruling elites.
Bottom line: Today’s powers-that-be simply cannot stand truthful expression because it exposes them for what they really are. Thus, truthtellers must be censored and “canceled.”
Take Tucker Carlson, hands-down the most popular conservative TV commentator in America, ousted by Fox News Channel’s ruling Murdoch family on Monday, April 24 with no prior notice nor reason given. The cable news giant has been seriously hemorrhaging viewers ever since. Recently, insider reports have claimed that despite official denials from all sides, Carlson’s expulsion was part of Fox’s $787.5 million out-of-court settlement of the Dominion voting machine lawsuit.
Regardless, many of America’s elites were delighted to see Fox News kill off its top show, since in their minds, the host was a purveyor of extreme rightwing conspiracy theories, an “election denier,” an ally of Vladimir Putin, and – of course – a racist. Consider:
* Tucker freely expressed the still-forbidden, though wildly obvious, truth that the 2020 presidential election was rigged. After all, totally aside from the mountain of proven election “irregularities” (the last-minute unconstitutional rule changes, the unsavory “ballot harvesting,” the double-counted ballots and so much more), Elon Musk’s public release of the previously suppressed “Twitter files” prove conclusively that the “Deep State” colluded with Big Tech to alter the outcome of the 2020 election. Period. Just weeks prior to the election, the guardians of the internet knowingly suppressed overwhelming evidence of rampant corruption and criminality on the part of the Biden family, very much including “the big guy.” Post-election polling revealed that Biden would have lost and Trump would now be president had Americans simply been allowed to hear the truth about Joe Biden before they cast their ballots.
* Carlson also exposed the Biden administration’s supremely reckless Ukraine policy of sending gargantuan amounts of taxpayer money and advanced weaponry to the epically corrupt eastern European country with no accounting required, while secretly pursuing the overthrow of Russian President Vladimir Putin – that is, a war of regime change in Moscow – thereby risking all-out global nuclear war.
* He exposed the ultra-dark insanity of the current transgender child-grooming craze, including the fact that not only are Hitlerian doctors surgically mutilating untold numbers of mentally fragile American children pursuing the impossible dream of “gender transition,” they are also plying countless more children with the same drugs used to chemically castrate convicted child rapists.
* During the COVID-19 pandemic, Carlson frequently featured experts blowing the whistle on the Biden administration’s heedless and shockingly authoritarian response to the viral outbreak, including its corrupt and incestuous relationship with Big Pharma, who together are still attempting to pressure every American man, woman and child to be injected with an experimental drug they all know is not only ineffective, but dangerous.
* He likewise exposed some of the many outrageous lies and injustices associated with the January 6 Capitol riot, dramatically airing for the first time long-suppressed surveillance video from that fateful day, the aftermath of which saw thousands of essentially innocent people accused of being terrorists, insurrectionists, white supremacists and Nazis.
“Times have radically changed when it comes to free speech in America,” comments author and longtime Whistleblower Editor David Kupelian. “Forty-five years ago, the American Civil Liberties Union took a highly controversial stand for free speech when it defended a group of swastika-wearing neo-Nazis intent on marching through Skokie, Ill., a Chicago suburb where many survivors of the Holocaust resided. Although the electrifying case induced many ACLU members to resign, it ultimately came to exemplify the legal group’s unwavering commitment to the quintessential American principle of nonviolent free speech – for everyone.
“Yet today,” adds Kupelian, “in every area of American life, free speech is suppressed, sometimes violently or with the force of law. And here’s the mind-numbing difference: Unlike in 1978 when even Nazis with their vile ideology were allowed to speak and demonstrate peacefully, today’s most ‘controversial’ and ‘offensive’ speech is almost always the most truthful speech, rendered by decent, law-abiding people, whom the Left liken to terrorists, fascists and Nazis.”
The multifaceted and entirely unprecedented attacks on Americans’ most cherished First Amendment freedoms – and how best to fight back – are illuminated as never before in the May issue of WND’s critically acclaimed Whistleblower magazine, titled “THE ELITES’ ALL-OUT WAR ON FREE SPEECH.”

First, you’ll get the state-of-the-art digital edition of Whistleblower’s sensational exposé of America’s public schools, "THE GREATEST BETRAYAL: How Marxism and madness have taken over America's public school system." (This issue is completely sold out of the print edition, with many readers purchasing large quantities to give to others.)
Although millions of American parents send their children off to public school every day, imagining their kids' days will be filled with reading, writing, arithmetic, science, history, sports and music, they're not only in for a shock – but total BETRAYAL. Today's "public" (government) schools have become far-left ideological, political and religious indoctrination centers aimed at reprogramming and transforming America's children. Kids are taught to HATE their own country and to see themselves and their parents as racists – or victims of racists. They are sexualized and corrupted, and many are groomed into the dark LGBT world, with almost 6,000 schools prohibiting parents from even hearing about their child's transgender "transition." In between all the far-left indoctrination and sexual corruption, teachers take time to scare children to death about the near-term end of life on earth due to "catastrophic climate change." Perhaps never has the true threat of today's U.S. public school system been exposed as in the sensational Whistleblower issue, "THE GREATEST BETRAYAL."
Next, you’ll receive the digital edition of the truly groundbreaking and important Whistleblower issue exposing, perhaps for the first time, “WHAT’S REALLY BEHIND THE TRANSGENDER CRAZE?” It gets to the bottom of today’s shockingly widespread campaign to indoctrinate, seduce, groom and flat-out RECRUIT America’s children into the dark world of transgenderism. Untold numbers of America’s kids are being led into lives of not just unending conflict, confusion, suffering, deformity and disability, but far too often – as multiple studies prove – suicide. The whole unbelievable story – including the underlying reasons, almost entirely unreported elsewhere, for what amounts to the most massive child sexual abuse campaign in American history – is explored as never before in “WHAT’S REALLY BEHIND THE TRANSGENDER CRAZE?”
Next, you’ll get the digital edition of the stunning Whistleblower report documenting an almost unbelievable trend, “ELITES FINALLY REVEAL THEIR #1 ENEMY: CHRISTIANS.” It reveals how the political, cultural and sexual revolutionaries responsible for all of America’s current chaos and madness have finally dared to “come out” and publicly identify exactly who they really consider to be their biggest enemy: Bible-believing, Judeo-Christian morals-affirming Christian believers – the kind who founded America, wrote her Constitution, and defended her with their lives for centuries. They are now considered the biggest enemy threatening the future of America! It’s exposed more clearly than ever in “ELITES FINALLY REVEAL THEIR #1 ENEMY: CHRISTIANS.”
Finally, you’ll get the digital edition of “TRIBULATION AND REDEMPTION IN AMERICA: How today’s breathtakingly corrupt politics and culture invite personal and national recovery.” For decades, the United States of America has been under covert, slow-motion assault by the revolutionary Left, a religious-political movement fundamentally at war with both Christianity and America. With such genuine wickedness openly manifesting in “the land of the free,” what can good Americans do about the precarious state of their country? During this time of genuine tribulation and even persecution, how should moral, right-thinking Americans, who work hard, love their country, honor its history and obey its laws – and who don’t pretend there are dozens of new genders and that America is a despicable racist hellhole – now respond? That’s the all-important question answered in “TRIBULATION AND REDEMPTION IN AMERICA.”
