Newsmax White House correspondent Emerald Robinson has been permanently suspended from Twitter for repeatedly violating the platform’s policy against spreading what it calls “COVID-19 misinformation,” a Twitter spokesperson confirmed to The Hill on Tuesday.

After regaining access to her account, Robinson received her fifth violation, resulting in a permanent ban, the Twitter spokesperson said.

The permanent suspension comes just hours after Robinson returned to Twitter following a temporary seven-day suspension she received last week after claiming the COVID-19 vaccines contain a tracking substance.

Robinson took to the social media platform last Monday to warn that, “the vaccines contain a bioluminescent marker called LUCIFERASE so that you can be tracked.”

“Read the last book of the New Testament to see how this ends,” she said.

The post was later removed by Twitter and replaced with a note stating that the original content violated its rules.

Newsmax, a conservative news outlet, sought to distance itself from Robinson’s claims and promptly took her off air.

In a statement to The Hill last week, Newsmax said it was, “currently reviewing the posts and during that period, Ms. Robinson will not be on air but continue with duties for the network.”

Chief Content Officer and Executive Vice President of the outlet, Elliot Jacobson, also issued a statement confirming that the outlet has not seen any evidence to suggest “LUCIFERASE or LUCIFERIN are present in any vaccines or that they are used as any sort [of] bioluminescent marker,” and noted that the network is “a strong proponent that COVID-19 vaccines are overarchingly safe and effective.”

After being banned from Twitter, Robinson took to Substack, a popular newsletter platform, to share posts regarding her COVID-19 vaccine theories.

“As most of my followers on social media and Substack must know by now, I have spent a considerable amount of time the last two years trying to discover the actual ingredients of the new COVID vaccines. The reason is simple: Big Pharma has gone to considerable trouble to hide them,” she wrote.

“Do the Big Pharma companies want to submit the vaccines to independent analysis? They do not! Do the Big Pharma companies want to disclose all the ingredients? They do not! Do the Big Pharma companies have any liability for lying to the public about the proprietary ingredients in their vaccines? They do not,” Robinson continued.

The former correspondent then went on to reiterate her claim that vaccines contain Luciferase, an enzyme that can produce bioluminescence.

“Under the cover of vaccinating people, we are really preparing to tag and track people. The once free nations of the West are testing a new authoritarian system of total control under the guise of public health,” she wrote.

“The Great Reset is being implemented with the lie that it’s all about ‘protecting your health.’ Our military and intelligence agencies are not confronting China—they’re copying China. A totalitarian nightmare is being imported into free countries through surveillance technologies.

“You don’t have to be a Christian to understand that such technology will be used to build a global surveillance state,” Robinson wrote.

Robinson has shared dozens more posts on Substack pertaining to Luciferase and other COVID-19 vaccine theories.

More than 7.32 billion vaccine doses have been administered across 184 countries, according to data collected by Bloomberg.

Meanwhile, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention maintains that COVID-19 vaccines are “safe and effective” and have undergone intensive safety monitoring.
