Defense Department Signs Contract with Social Media Monitoring Company

The US Department of Defense is contracting with a company that specializes in monitoring social media. 

We learned in recent US Congress hearings that the State Department and the Defense Department are actively working to censor conservative free speech.

This was shared in recent best seller “The Steal – Volume III: The Cover-Up“.

In this book is new information on the manner in which the US government is paying to censor free speech and conservatives (p. 113).

Gaetz, Taibbi, and Shellenberger went on to discuss how the Department of Defense was paying “fact checker” Newsguard “not only to seek content moderation but apply subjective risk or reliability scores to media outlets,” which would result in a reduction of revenue for conservative publishers.

Gaetz, Taibbi, and Shellenberger also discussed the Secretary of State’s Global Engagement Center (GEC). The GEC helped fund Newsguard along with the Department of Defense. The GEC is also instrumental in funding other entities focused on censoring conservative media and the truth.

In another report, it was discovered that the GEC was funding a censorship entity out of the UK that was targeting conservative media in the US. The US taxpayer-funded National Endowment for Democracy and the State Department’s GEC funded over $600,000 to the UK’s Global Disinformation Index (GDI). Other high-profile funders of the GDI are George Soros’s Open Society, the European Union, and the United Kingdom. The GDI openly bragged about attacking conservative media advertisers and preventing them from supporting these entities.

Yesterday, it was reported that the US Defense Department is at it again.

Fresh revelations regarding a $2.5 million contractual agreement between the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) at Fort George G. Meade and social media scrutinizer Dataminr have emerged. These claims, unveiled by a US government notice, imply a new era of digital monitoring rests on the horizon, increasingly unsettling in its reinforcement of sweeping surveillance, and potentially having implications on free speech and privacy protection.

Fort Meade, also known as the steering wheel of the US Government’s paramount signals intelligence organization, the National Security Agency, has seemingly struck a discreet deal to expand its espionage services.

DISA, commodiously located at Fort Meade, is now purported to have voluminous exposure to public posts from assorted social media platforms, including X, formerly Twitter.

Dataminr is a company specializing in AI-driven real-time information discovery and is known for detecting, classifying, and determining the significance of public information in real time. It’s plausible that government entities, including the Department of Defense, may leverage services like Dataminr to monitor social media and other public data sources to maintain situational awareness and respond to emerging events or threats more rapidly.

Your government is paying to prevent your free speech from being heard.
