On November 08, 2021, distinguished Dr. Joseph Mercola published an article titled, "Dr. Mercola Files Lawsuit Against US Sen. Elizabeth Warren".


The First Amendment appears to have been disregarded and information contrary to the mainstream narrative was seemingly suppressed. The alleged suppression of free speech by Elizabeth Warren often referred to as 'Pocahontas', comes after the book was at the top of the results when consumers searched for information about COVID-19.


In addition to monetary damages, the lawsuit requests that the court declare Warren's actions "unlawful and unconstitutional" and order her to produce a "public retraction of her letter."

In part of the complaint it states:

Once upon a time, the First Amendment was understood to guarantee that books challenging governmental orthodoxy could be sold without fear of governmental intimidation or reprisal.

In a summarization, the article stated:


STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • In early September 2021, U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren sent a letter to Andy Jassy, chief executive officer of Amazon.com, demanding an “immediate review” of Amazon’s algorithms to weed out books peddling “COVID misinformation,” stressing that Amazon’s sale of such books was “potentially unlawful”

  • Warren specifically singled out my book, “The Truth About COVID-19,” co-written with Ronnie Cummins, founder and director of the Organic Consumers Association (OCA), as a prime example of “highly-ranked and favorably-tagged books based on falsehoods about COVID-19 vaccines and cures” that she wants banned

  • As a government official, it is illegal for Warren to violate the U.S. Constitution, and pressuring private businesses to do it for her is not a legal workaround

  • Cummins and I, along with our publisher, Chelsea Green Publishing, and Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who wrote our foreword, are now suing Warren, both in her official and personal capacities, for violating our First Amendment rights and scaring book sellers into pulling and/or suppressing sales of our book

  • Ironically, Warren’s claims of misinformation are themselves misinformation that puts lives at risk

“Dr. Mercola has been described as ‘the most influential spreader of coronavirus misinformation online,” Warren wrote,(5) adding: “Not only was this book the top result when searching either ‘COVID-19’ or ‘vaccine’ in the categories of ‘All Departments’ and ‘Books’; it was tagged as a ‘Best Seller’ by Amazon and the ‘#1 Best Seller’ in the ‘Political Freedom’ category.
The book perpetuates dangerous conspiracies about COVID-19 and false and misleading information about vaccines. It asserts that vitamin C, vitamin D and quercetin … can prevent COVID-19 infection … And the book contends that vaccines cannot be trusted ...”
