Whole Foods CEO John Mackey ‘Concerned’ that ‘Socialists are Taking Over’ by
Lee Brownfor the New York Post
Whole Foods co-founder and exiting CEO John Mackey has said he is “deeply concerned” that “socialists are taking over” the country. “They’re marching through the institutions — they’re taking everything over,” the 68-year-old executive told Reason magazine in an interview just weeks before he finally steps down from the supermarket giant. “They’ve taken over education. It looks like they’ve taken over a lot of the corporations. It looks like they’ve taken over the military,” he said of his main “concern.”
“And it’s just continuing,” he warned. He described himself as a “capitalist at heart” and said he believes in liberty. “And I feel like with the way freedom of speech is today — the movement on gun control — a lot of the liberties that I’ve taken for granted most of my life, I think, are under threat,” he said.
Judge orders White House to turn over emails Fauci, Jean-Pierre sent Big Tech by

The Biden administration must turn over emails that press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci and other top officials sent to social media companies in response to a lawsuit claiming the White House colluded with Big Tech to censor viewpoints it disagreed with as “misinformation,” a federal judge in Louisiana has ruled.
US District Judge Terry Doughty’s Tuesday order was the latest development in a lawsuit filed in May by Attorneys General Eric Schmitt of Missouri and Jeff Landry of Louisiana, who charged the executive branch acted in cahoots with social media giants like Facebook and Twitter to “censor freedom of speech” on a number of topics, including the COVID-19 pandemic and elections.
“This Court believes Plaintiffs are entitled to external communications by Jean-Pierre and Dr. Fauci in their capacities as White House Press Secretary and Chief Medical Advisor to the President to third-party social media platforms,” Doughty, an appointee of former President Donald Trump, wrote in his 10-page order.
“The White House has waived its claim of privilege in relation to specific documents that it voluntarily revealed to third parties outside the White House,” the judge continued before ordering the documents to be turned over within 21 days.
