COVID damage to our Armed Forces

“Toxic by design:” Researcher explains why US Department of Defense COVID vax operation shows intent to harm

LifeSiteNews points to evidence from the beginning showing that the COVID shots implemented by the Department of Defense amounted to toxic injections rather than the promised “vaccines.”

Former pharmaceutical executive and researcher Alexandra “Sasha” Latypova has laid out compelling arguments for why the “cartel” that orchestrated the dissemination and uptake of “biowarfare agents” — marketed as “COVID-19 vaccines” — operated with “very clear intent to harm” and to execute a “mass genocide of Americans.”

Latypova worked more than 25 years in the pharmaceutical industry specializing in research and development, including data analysis, clinical trials, and technologies, while also co-founding multiple research organizations before retiring at a relatively young age.

Having been alarmed by government policy during the COVID crisis, she began conducting several levels of investigation that most recently revealed how the COVID-19 “vaccines” were fully produced, controlled and distributed by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) with pharmaceutical manufacturers such as Pfizer, Moderna, and Janssen only serving as “figureheads” in a broader public relations campaign to provide the product with an appearance of medical legitimacy.

As Latypova has explained, the DoD managed to classify these “vaccines,” not as medicines or pharmaceuticals but as “COVID countermeasures” under the authority of the military, which means they are not required to comply with U.S. law governing the manufacturing quality, testing, effectiveness, safety, and labeling of medical products.

Yet while such laws did not apply to these “COVID-19 vaccines,” the government advanced an orchestrated public relations façade that standard testing, monitoring and approval processes were being strictly observed by the CDC and FDA, even as many thousands of injuries and deaths had been steadily documented and independent medical experts and media sounded alarms only to be canceled my legacy and social media corporations.

In an early December video lecture, the former pharma executive laid out evidence for how the DoD, HHS, and other U.S. government agencies, along with other governments and pharmaceutical companies, were involved in “a conspiracy to commit mass murder through bioterrorism and informational warfare operations worldwide.”

“The evidence is overwhelming that there is an intent to harm people by the COVID 19 injections, so-called ‘vaccines,’ and other nonsensical COVID response measures implemented in lockstep by governments all over the world,” she explained.

Refusal to intervene despite high injury rates ‘points to an intentional act’ to inflict harm

First, such intent is indicated by the fact that “these injections are toxic by design,” Latypova said. “We know this. There has been an extensive body of literature, studies, scientific discussions, [and] evidence published on this matter.”

Therefore, “there is definitely no safety in these shots,” the analyst said, referring to the well-known death and injury reports from VAERS and other data sources that show “millions of reports of injury, deaths, [and] permanent disabilities,” including these harms being inflicted on many children and young people.

In an earlier presentation to the Corona Investigative Committee (CIC), Latypova called these reports “absolutely alarming,” emphasizing that the safety signals were “obvious from the start.” And the fact that “no health authority ever noticed it” or intervened “points to an intentional act” to inflict harm.

She also highlighted one incident on January 18, 2021 when California health officials “paused” the use of one large lot of the injections from Moderna due to its “higher-than-usual number of possible allergic reactions.” However, just three days later, health authorities said it was “safe to resume” the use of the lot and these products continued to be injected in thousands of people across the U.S.

This batch of biological agents went on to generate “about 1,000 serious adverse events and close to 60 deaths,” Latypova explained. And thus, “all of those [deaths and injuries] should be deemed intentional because the authorities did flag it. They did find that it was generating abnormal adverse events, yet nobody did anything to stop it and they continued pushing it into people.”

The broad, systematic omission of safety standards in production indicates an intent to harm

In addition, “there is no efficacy in these shots,” Latypova explained in December. “In fact, we know there is negative efficacy, meaning that these shots make you more likely to get sick and die.”

Also last month, highly acclaimed insurance analyst Josh Stirling reported that those who accepted the experimental gene-base COVID vaccine “have a 26% higher mortality rate,” including 49% for those under 50, and 145% for those who accepted just one dose of a two-dose regimen.”

And just before Christmas, Alex Berenson reported on two studies that showed those who received the shots “are at least twice as likely to be infected with the coronavirus as unvaccinated people,” and “the risk actually rises with the number of shots. People who had received three or more shots were more than three times as likely to be infected.”

Latypova continued focusing primally on her earlier work, asserting the “extensive evidence of bad manufacturing of these products,” including their “highly variable production.” Such manufacturers “are not compliant with good manufacturing practices and, importantly, there is no enforcement of good manufacturing practices worldwide for these products [by the regulators].”

Such a broad, systematic omission of safety standards in production indicates an intent to harm by the perpetrators as well, the former executive told CIC. If these individuals, government agencies and pharmaceutical companies had a legitimate medicinal intention to assist in the prevention of disease, then “the safety guidelines should [have been] followed, and they don’t follow a single one of them.”

Forcing the healthy and young to take an engineered mRNA shot built to mimic the symptoms of a possibly engineered disease — just doesn’t seem right

When the young already showed a resistance to the disease, it seemed like the best thing to do was to focus on protecting the vulnernable populations (the old, the obese, those who smoked, and others).

However, Biden chose not to do that with our military.


Joy Pullmann has 7 reasons high inflation won’t go away soon. I have 4 more.

Seven reasons high inflation won’t go away soon

Joy Pullmann of The Federalist lays out the driving forces in our current bout of high inflation and the reasons that this high inflation will likely not leave any time soon.

A recession is coming in 2023, concluded more than two-thirds of the economists at big financial institutions recently surveyed by The Wall Street Journal. Inflation is also likely to remain high. Measuring year-over-year inflation by the U.S. government’s 1980s methodology put it at 15.23 percent in November 2022 instead of the government’s claimed 7.11 percent, according to economist John Williams.

Many commentators, including me, were wrong when we previously claimed our grandkids will be paying off America’s massively unaffordable welfare state. We are all paying for it right now and are likely to be for much of our lives in inflation and other economic devastation.

Nobel Prize-winning economist Milton Friedman’s maxim that “inflation is always and everywhere a monetary phenomenon” — meaning, inflation is always caused by government overspending — predicts continued inflation for at least the next five years, if not longer.

That’s because government entities are continuing to engage in seriously inflationary actions. They’re doing this partly because of ideology, partly to buy votes, and partly because they prefer eating away Americans’ savings to paying off the unprecedented government debt that politicians have accumulated in the last 70 years enriching their friends and buying off voters.

Inflation Means Politicians Stealing from You

A 2021 Politico profile of a former U.S. Federal Reserve member noted, “Between 2008 and 2014, the Federal Reserve printed more than $3.5 trillion in new bills. To put that in perspective, it’s roughly triple the amount of money that the Fed created in its first 95 years of existence. Three centuries’ worth of growth in the money supply was crammed into a few short years.”

That dissenting former Federal Reserve committee member, Thomas Hoenig, “was worried primarily that the Fed was taking a risky path that would deepen income inequality, stoke dangerous asset bubbles and enrich the biggest banks over everyone else,” the profile says. “He also warned that it would suck the Fed into a money-printing quagmire that the central bank would not be able to escape without destabilizing the entire financial system.”

Essentially, the Federal Reserve has been helping Congress manufacture money to buy up the public debt they contracted by promising Americans more stuff than we can pay for. That’s been ongoing since the 1960s Great Society, which basically paid Americans with unaffordable entitlements to shut up about the steady loss of their constitutional freedoms, according to scholar Christopher Caldwell.

The Borrowing Will Go On Until It Can’t

In 2021, 41 percent of federal spending depended on borrowing. In 2022, 22 percent did. This means raising the cost of debt by hiking interest rates, as the Fed is now doing, could provoke a crisis because it would make Congress’s unsustainable behavior even more painful.

As a Manhattan Institute analysis by economist Brian Riedl notes, “rising interest rates risk pushing government interest costs, annual budget deficits, and total government debt to unsustainable levels … once the debt surges, even modest interest-rate movements can impose stratospheric costs.”

This would call years of government bluffing about the state of federal finances and institutions. It would require Congress not only to stop spending but to cut programs, which means angering voters. It would usher in the unavoidable and painful new era of managing America’s decline.

“Once a debt-and-interest-rate spiral begins, it is nearly impossible to escape without drastic inflation or fiscal consolidation,” Riedl notes.

However this ends, it is likely to include a lot of economic pain, one way or another. Here are just a few of the many indicators that inflationary times are not going away fast.

1. ‘Covid’ Overspending Continues Until at Least 2024

The funds for the sixth waste-packed “Covid relief bill” will be distributed to big-government donors, states, and local governments through the end of presidential election year 2024. Yes, the American Rescue Plan Act from Covid-tide sends states and local governments $350 billion that is still being rolled out — by design.


2. Democrats and Republicans Recently Went on Even More Inflationary Spending Binges

In conjunction with Democrats’ mega-spending “infrastructure” and “green energy” bills soon after Covid that also helped them win Congress and the presidency in 2020, all this extra spending is projected to increase the federal debt by an unprecedented $6.5 trillion, costing more than the 20 years of U.S. occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan, according to Riedl.


3. Build Back Bankrupt Shoveled Yet More Out the Door for Years to Come

In 2022, the Biden administration managed to get its top-priority grab-bag of increased government spending signed into law. By spending more money the government does not have and imposing more taxes, the ridiculously named Inflation Reduction Act is likely to increase inflation, said a Tax Foundation analysis.


4. Federal Officials Are Destroying the People’s Trust

Inflation happens “When money is no longer a trustworthy measure of value,” note Steve Forbes, Nathan Lewis, and Elizabeth Ames in their 2022 book, “Inflation.” Inflation is at least partly about a crisis of confidence in government — a warranted one, usually, because major inflation occurs as a result of politician malfeasance. Unfortunately, U.S. government officials are doing nothing to restore the people’s lost confidence in them — in fact, just the opposite.


5. The U.S. Federal Government Is Effectively Bankrupt and Inflation Helps It Hide That

The on-books U.S. national debt of $31.5 trillion is just the tip of the iceberg. Our entitlement systems are about to start going bankrupt, adding trillions in additional financial burdens on taxpayers. Riedl notes, “The U.S. government is projected to run a staggering $112 trillion in budget deficits over the next three decades, driven mostly by Social Security and Medicare commitments that are already set in law.” 


6. Child Scarcity Will Drive Higher Prices

In March 2022, The Wall Street Journal reported the opinion of retired British central banker Charles Goodhart that global structural factors will drive higher inflation for years to come. Goodhart helped Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher break inflation in the 1980s. He told the Journal that the rising global crisis of child scarcity will also push inflation up for decades.


7. The People Who Did All This Are Still in Charge

This reality applies to nearly every major political problem: The same people who have created these messes are the same people who largely retain the power to respond to them. The same people writing massive spending bills that divert our economy away from productive labor and into rent-seekers’ pockets are still largely in charge of government spending.

(Read the interspersed paragraphs and the conclusion at The Federalist)

Additionally, I will provide four more reasons for continued high inflation

I would suggest that there are also four additional reasons for high inflation:

  • Too many Americans take the word of the traditional media (aka, main stream media) as gospel and the traditional media supports those in charge
  • The press/politicians still use COVID to scare a significant portion of the population into compliance (this hints at control past 2024)
  • As long as you have the money to take advantage of it, inflation can be a tool for gaining wealth. Therefore, inflation only hurts the middle and lower classes. Therefore, the powerbrokers have no reason to reign in inflation.
  • The Ukraine mess and its subsequent money pit remain a favorite of the ruling class. While I support any people who want to fight to rule themselves, we have to acknowledge that such support has a cost.

    Additionally, let’s not kid ourselves. Not all of the money sent to support the Ukrainian cause goes to weapons, blankets, or food for the Ukrainian people. (Does it, Big Guy?)


Losing our Free Speech to a Democrat COVID, part 2

How the FBI hacked Twitter

Tablet Magazine outlines the methods used by the FBI as they got Twitter to do Biden’s bidding.

The FBI prepared America’s new public-private censorship regime for the 2020 election by falsely telling Twitter, as well as other social media platforms, press outlets, lawmakers, and staff members of the White House, that Russians were readying a hack and leak operation to dirty the Democratic candidate. Accordingly, when reports of a laptop owned by Hunter Biden and giving evidence of his family’s financial ties with foreign officials were published in October 2020, Twitter blocked them.

In the week before the election, the FBI field office in charge of investigating Hunter Biden sent multiple censorship requests to Twitter. The FBI has “some folks in the Baltimore field office and at [FBI headquarters] that are just doing keyword searches for violations,” a company lawyer wrote in a Nov. 3, 2020, email.

The documents also show that Twitter banished Trump after misrepresenting his posts as incitement to violence. With U.S. intelligence services reportedly using informants to provoke violence during the January 6th protest at the Capitol, the trap closed on Trump. Twitter and Facebook then moved to silence the outgoing president by denying him access to the global communications infrastructure.

The FBI unit designated to coordinate with social media companies during the 2020 election cycle was the Foreign Influence Task Force. It was set up in the fall of 2017 “to identify and counteract malign foreign influence operations” through, “strategic engagement with U.S. technology companies.” During the election cycle, according to the Twitter files, the unit “swelled to 80 agents and corresponded with Twitter to identify alleged foreign influence and election tampering of all kinds.”

The FBI’s chief liaison with Twitter was Elvis Chan, an agent from its Cyber Branch. Based in the San Francisco field office, Chan was also in communication with Facebook, Google, Yahoo!, Reddit and LinkedIn. Chan demanded user information that Twitter said it could not release outside of a “legal process.” In exchange, Chan promised to secure temporary security clearances for 30 Twitter employees a month before the election, presumably to give staff the same briefings on alleged Russian information operations provided to U.S. officials in classified settings.

But Twitter executives claimed they found little evidence of Russian activity on the site. So Chan badgered former head of site security Yoel Roth to produce evidence the FBI was serving its advertised mission of combating foreign influence operations when in fact it was focused on violating the First Amendment rights of Americans.

Chan briefed Twitter extensively on an alleged Russian hacking unit, APT28, or Fancy Bear, which was the same outfit that was claimed by Hillary Clinton campaign contractors to have hacked and leaked Democratic National Committee emails in 2016. According to Roth, the FBI had “rimed” him to attribute reports about Hunter Biden’s laptop to an APT28 hack-and-leak operation. Needless to say, the FBI’s reports—and subsequent “disinformation” claims—were themselves blatant disinformation, invented by the FBI, which had been in possession of the laptop for nearly a year.

Twitter was more than a one-way mirror: The FBI also seems to have embedded its own spy structure within the social media company to siphon off the personal data and behavior of users. Dozens of former intelligence officials were installed within Twitter after the election of Donald Trump. Some had active top secret security clearances. Twitter’s director of strategy was Dawn Burton, former FBI Director James Comey’s deputy chief of staff. Perhaps most significant was Baker himself, who appears to have led the FBI’s internal organization at the platform. Efforts to reach Baker for comment on this story were unsuccessful.

Baker left the FBI in 2018 under a cloud of suspicion. In 2017, the Justice Department investigated him for leaking to the press, and the Republican-led House of Representatives later investigated him for his role in Russiagate. Former congressional officials say that as part of the bureau’s 2016 investigation of the Trump campaign, Baker authored the warrant to spy on Trump’s inner circle.

After he departed the law enforcement agency, CNN rewarded him for his “resistance” activities—which boosted the network’s ratings to record levels—by hiring him as a legal analyst. The Washington, D.C.-based Brookings Institution brought Baker on board to contribute to its collusion-conspiracy website “Lawfare.” DOJ again investigated him in 2019 for leaking to the media while at the FBI. In June 2020, Baker joined Twitter as deputy general counsel. With his security clearances still active, he was Twitter’s liaison with U.S. intelligence agencies, where he reinforced the FBI’s external pressure from inside Twitter to censor the Biden laptop story.

Under Baker, Twitter became more than just an instrument to censor the opposition; it also spied on them. Newly released court documents show that Twitter coordinated with the DOJ to intercept the communications of users potentially dangerous to the Biden campaign, like Tara Reade, ​the former Biden Senate staffer who alleged that Biden had sexually assaulted her decades earlier. The DOJ subpoenaed her Twitter account, likely with the purpose of giving the company cover for finding out which journalists had contacted her about her allegations.

As maintained by many, to know what Democrats are doing, observe their accusations

As many have said, Democrats seem to accuse others of doing what they do.

So, when Hillary colluded to rig an election, she accused Trump of Russian collusion and it snowballed from there.

The Biden administration pressured Facebook to censor Fox News host Tucker Carlson

The Conservative Review discovered through emails how the Biden regime hounded Facebook to silence Tucker Carlson.

President Joe Biden’s administration actively pressured Facebook to censor Fox News host Tucker Carlson for criticizing the Covid shots, according to internal White House communication records obtained by the attorneys general of Missouri and Louisiana.

In an email dated April 14, 2021, then-senior adviser to the president’s Covid response team, Andrew Slavitt, voiced dissatisfaction to a Facebook official that a video of Carlson questioning the left’s universal demand that people get the Covid jab was “Number one” on the platform, to which said official responded that they’d look into the matter. Later that same day, the Facebook representative informed the White House that while the “Tucker Carlson video does not qualify for removal under [Facebook’s] policies,” the company would label the clip with “a pointer to more authoritative COVID information” and work to limit its reach on the platform.

Facebook’s efforts did not meet the administration’s demands for greater censorship, however. In response to the representative, White House Director of Digital Strategy Robert Flaherty questioned how Carlson’s video didn’t violate Facebook’s existing policies and pressured the company to turn over information on the efficacy of its censorship practices.

“How was this not violative? The second half of the segment is raising conspiracy theories about the government hiding that all vaccines aren’t effective,” Flaherty claimed. “Moreover, you say reduced and demoted. What does that mean? There’s 40,000 shares on the video. Who is seeing it now? How many? How effective is that?”

“Not for nothing but last time we did this dance, it ended in an insurrection,” Flaherty added in an apparent reference to the platform’s handling of claims pertaining to the outcome of the 2020 presidential election and subsequent riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

But the Biden White House’s habit of using Big Tech to silence dissenting voices on Covid-related information didn’t just stop at Carlson. A separate batch of emails released by the Missouri and Louisiana attorneys general reveals a concentrated endeavor between the administration and Facebook to reduce the “virality of vaccine hesitancy content,” even if such posts contained factually accurate information.

“As you know, in addition to removing vaccine misinformation, we have been focused on reducing the virality of content discouraging vaccines that does not contain actionable misinformation,” a Facebook representative told Slavitt in a March 21, 2021, email. “This is often-true content, which we allow at the post level … but it can be framed as sensation, alarmist, or shocking. We’ll remove these Groups, Pages, and Accounts when they are disproportionately promoting this sensationalized content.”

In addition to Facebook, Twitter was also a major player in the collusion efforts between the federal government and Big Tech to further squash free speech online. In an email dated August 11, 2022, Flaherty admonished Twitter for allowing posts contradicting White House claims to circulate on the platform, writing that “if your product is appending misinformation to our tweets[,] that seems like a pretty fundamental issue.”

Flaherty separately accused Twitter in a December 2021 email of “Total Calvinball” and “bending over backwards” to tolerate disfavored speech after the company refused to comply with demands from the administration to censor a video.

“This case is about the Biden Administration’s blatant disregard for the First Amendment and its collusion with social media companies [to] suppress speech it disagrees with,” said Missouri AG Andrew Bailey in a statement. “I will always fight back against unelected bureaucrats who seek to indoctrinate the people of this state by violating our constitutional right to free and open debate.”

Flaherty needs to be the center of every Republican advertisement for a while

Just because Flaherty so epitomizes the current Big Brother sentiment in government, we need to make it a distasteful central focus until it disappears.

We have done too much coddling of the woke.

Ted Cruz accuses the White House of “brazen censorship”

BizPacReview details the case where Senator Ted Cruz accused the White House of censorship in trying to silence Tucker Carlson over his vaccine stance.

Sen. Ted Cruz is helping to bring attention to the latest bombshell about Twitter.

The bombshell comes courtesy newly appointed Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey.

His predecessor, Eric Schmitt, had filed a lawsuit against the Biden administration, and that suit has finally borne some fruit: White House emails showing the Biden administration trying to pressure Twitter into silencing conservatives.

Case in point:

In the email seen above, White House digital director Rob Flaherty pressures Twitter into reducing the reach of posts published by Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson and Tomi Lahren.

“Since we’ve been on the phone — the top post about vaccines today is tucker Carlson saying they don’t work. Yesterday was Tomi Lehren saying she won’t take one. This is exactly why I want to know what ‘reduction’ actually looks like — if ‘reduction’ means ‘pumping our most vaccine hesitant audience with tucker Carlson saying it doesn’t work’ then … I’m not sure it’s reduction!” the email reads.

This blatant government censorship must stop

My only question now is: “Why hasn’t Mr. Flaherty been fired?”


Losing our Free Speech to a Democrat COVID, part 1

The White House COVID censorship machine

The Wall Street Journal details some of the censorship of Americans through Facebook and similar social media.

Newly released documents show that the White House has played a major role in censoring Americans on social media. Email exchanges between Rob Flaherty, the White House’s director of digital media, and social-media executives prove the companies put Covid censorship policies in place in response to relentless, coercive pressure from the White House—not voluntarily. The emails emerged Jan. 6 in the discovery phase of Missouri v. Biden, a free-speech case brought by the attorneys general of Missouri and Louisiana and four private plaintiffs represented by the New Civil Liberties Alliance.

On March 14, 2021, Mr. Flaherty emailed a Facebook executive (whose name we’ve redacted as a courtesy) with the subject line “You are hiding the ball” and a link to a Washington Post article about Facebook’s own research into “the spread of ideas that contribute to vaccine hesitancy,” as the paper put it. “I think there is a misunderstanding,” the executive wrote back. “I don’t think this is a misunderstanding,” Mr. Flaherty replied. “We are gravely concerned that your service is one of the top drivers of vaccine hesitancy—period. . . . We want to know that you’re trying, we want to know how we can help, and we want to know that you’re not playing a shell game. . . . This would all be a lot easier if you would just be straight with us.”

(Read more at the Wall Street Journal)

Why not state it explicitly, Mr. Flaherty?

Come out like a mob boss and say, “You’ve got a nice horse there. It would be terrible if someone killed it, so why don’t you pay us protection monies?”

Obviously, there is no free speech in the open market regarding health matters. Although the Democrats like to call reference to science, they don’t want to allow the discussion that science requires. They just want their side heard.

Democrats were warned Russian bot theory was false

The Washington Times tells us how the Democrats were warned that the theory of Russian bots was a red herring.

Democratic lawmakers insisted Russian bots had overtaken Twitter and were being used to boost Republican talking points, despite warnings by platform executives that the claim was untrue, according to the latest installment of the “Twitter Files.”

Twitter employees warned several top Democrats that their theory of a Russian troll takeover on the platform lacked evidence. The lawmakers peddled the assertion in an attempt to swat down the Republican-led House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence’s memo in 2018 that detailed FBI surveillance abuses against Trump insiders.

Those warnings were outright ignored, Elon Musk’s latest batch of files revealed Thursday.

Rep. Adam B. Schiff and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, both California Democrats, seized on the idea that the Kremlin’s troll farm was behind a trending hashtag on the platform calling for the release of a classified memo submitted by Rep. Devin Nunes, California Republican and House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence chairman, detailing the FBI abuses and the role of the debunked “Steele dossier.”

In an open letter days after the memo was drafted, the Democratic lawmakers said the hashtag had “gained the immediate attention and assistance of social media accounts linked to Russian influence operations,” and accused Mr. Nunes of distorting classified information in the memo.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal, Connecticut Democrat, wrote a separate open letter denouncing the Nunes memo adding that he found it “reprehensible that Russian agents have so eagerly manipulated innocent Americans.”

Those open letters were coupled with hit pieces by media outlets widely dismissing the Republican-led memo as a joke.

(Read more at the Washington Times)

This cannot be put to anything but willful blindness

Since the bought-and-paid-for Democrats (at least those on the payroll of Hillary and Bill) had created the Steele dossier, it seems reasonable that they would try to sell the Russian bot theory. However, thankfully, many Americans think independently.

Problem is, if the media repeats a lie long enough with enough fervor, many will come to adopt it.

Thus, we are being lead into blindness.


Had it not just represented the Left, maybe there would be use behind the Twitter Trust and Safety Council

Elon Musk’s Twitter dissolves the Trust and Safety Council

Breitbart delves a little into the dissolution of the Trust and Safety Council by Twitter.

Elon Musk’s Twitter dissolved its Trust and Safety Council on Monday night. This comes days after three members of the council announced their resignation saying that contrary to Elon Musk’s claims, “the safety and wellbeing of Twitter’s users are on the decline.”

The Washington Post reports that Twitter dissolved its Trust and Safety Council on Monday. In an email to board members, the company wrote: “As Twitter moves into a new phase, we are reevaluating how best to bring external insights into our product and policy development work. As part of this process, we have decided that the Trust and Safety Council is not the best structure to do this.”

The email adds: “We are grateful for your engagement, advice and collaboration in recent years and wish you every success in the future.” This move comes just days after three members of the board announced their resignation from the council, stating that they were doing so as “it is clear from research evidence that, contrary to claims by Elon Musk, the safety and wellbeing of Twitter’s users are on the decline.”

One council member told the Washington Post that Twitter is throwing away “years of institutional memory that we on the council have brought” to the company. “Getting external experts and advocates looking at your services makes you smarter,” they added.

Larry Magid, chief executive of ConnectSafely, a Silicon Valley nonprofit that advises consumers about children’s internet use, commented: “By disbanding it, we got fired instead of quit. Elon doesn’t want criticism, and he really doesn’t want the kind of advice he would very likely get from a safety advisory council, which would likely tell him to rehire some of the staff he got rid of, and reinstate some of the rules he got rid of, and turn the company in another direction from where he is turning it.”

Despite the lofty pronouncements of the former Trust and Safety Council, the company has done a terrible job at stopping child pornography from appearing on the platform. In fact, their inability to stop illegal material caused the company to change its business plans.

If these people had actually considered the science, maybe they’d still be around

If they had not gone the Democrat Socialist way of stifling debate and had gone the way of investigation, then maybe we might know about:

  • Hydroxychloroquine and other prescription drugs proven effective against coronavirus
  • The doctors’ opinions on various medical issues that Democrats don’t want discussed
  • Hunter’s laptop and all of its intricracies
  • Issues that happened during the elections that disfavored Democrats
  • The anti-free speech portions of the Respect for Marriage law
  • The shadow banning that has been occurring on Google, Facebook, and elsewhere
  • The collusion between Big Tech and Big Government
  • The true nature of the crisis at our Southern Border

These “experts” claim that, without them, Twitter will be awash in porn and other unwanted trash.

I have news for them. Even with their services, I have received unwanted porn (which I blocked on multiple occasions, since they were not effective to protect me from this on the first few instances).

So, considering the disservice I know these “experts” have provided against me along with the Democrats, I say a joyous “good riddance.” Likewise, considering the service that I can’t really tell they have done (of providing a blocking service to porn and true disinformation), I say “had you done a really good and balanced job of it, I might say something other than ‘Good riddance,’ but you didn’t.”


All you need to know about big tech, politics, and health

A lawsuit reveals that the White House and big tech colluded to censor “misinformation” on COVID

The New York Post revealed in a 1 September 2022 article how a lawsuit filed by two state Attorneys General has exposed the collusion between the White House and big tech.

The Biden administration worked in tandem with social media giants like Facebook and Twitter to censor statements they deemed “misinformation” about topics including the COVID-19 pandemic, two Republican state attorneys general said Thursday as they pushed for the release of emails between top executive branch officials and Big Tech titans.

In a petition filed Wednesday in Louisiana federal court, state Attorney General Jeff Landry and his Missouri counterpart Eric Schmitt charged that “dozens of federal officials across at least eleven federal agencies” engaged in a “massive, sprawling federal ‘Censorship Enterprise,’” with the “intent and effect of pressuring social-media platforms to censor and suppress private speech that federal officials disfavor.”

The Biden administration has not been shy about leaning on social media companies to police their content. On July 15, 2021, then-White House press secretary Jen Psaki admitted her colleagues were “flagging problematic posts for Facebook that spread disinformation.”

“It’s important to take faster action against harmful posts … and Facebook needs to move more quickly to remove harmful violative posts,” Psaki added at the time.

The following day, Biden accused platforms like Facebook of “killing people” by allowing so-called “misinformation” to propagate unchecked.

(Read more at the New York Post)

We were sure of the collusion between Biden and Big Tech. Now we have proof.

While Biden has accused Facebook of killing people by allowing what he calls misinformation to remain (which really is not, as proven by the studies cited in the last article), I would say the induced heart attacks and brain issues might be substantially more significant.

Gavin Newsom signs a bill to punish doctors for providing COVID-19 “misinformation”

The Tennessee Star reported in a 4 October 2022 article that California Governor Newsom signed a law that would punish doctors for providing “misinformation” on COVID-19.

California Governor Gavin Newsom signed into law Friday a bill that allows the medical boards of California to be used as government overseers as they discipline doctors who provide their patients with informed consent about the risks of the COVID-19 mRNA shots and the benefits of early treatment for COVID disease with off-label drugs.

Newsom signed AB 2098, which labels as “unprofessional conduct” a doctor’s discussion about the benefits of early treatment of COVID with effective, readily available, and inexpensive medications already in use for years.

Physicians who share information about the risks associated with the mRNA shots, which the government calls “vaccines,” or the benefits of early treatment with drugs such as hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin, could be brought before the Medical Board of California or the Osteopathic Medical Board of California and threatened with the loss of their license and livelihood.

The Medical Board of California states the minimum punishment for “unprofessional conduct” is five years’ probation, with the maximum penalty as the revocation of the physician’s medical license.

“In cases charging repeated negligent acts with one patient, a public reprimand may, in appropriate circumstances, be ordered,” the board says.

The legislation’s text states:

It shall constitute unprofessional conduct for a physician and surgeon to disseminate misinformation or disinformation related to COVID-19, including false or misleading information regarding the nature and risks of the virus, its prevention and treatment; and the development, safety, and effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines.

In the text, “misinformation” refers to “false information that is contradicted by contemporary scientific consensus contrary to the standard of care.”

It is unclear, however, who decides what the “consensus” is.

“Why should doctors who discuss these facts with patients be threatened with the loss of their livelihoods?” asked Dr. Harvey Risch, professor emeritus and senior research scientist in epidemiology at Yale School of Public Health, in a column at RealClearHealth.

“Don’t patients have the right to receive informed consent?” he added. “Isn’t that obligatory for doctors to provide?”

The text of AB 2098 also states the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has claimed “unvaccinated individuals are at a risk of dying from COVID-19 that is 11 times greater than those who are fully vaccinated.”

Doctors of California now are not doctors

Now the governor acts as the supreme doctor. Maybe now all malpractice cases and malpractice insurance should be forwarded to the governor.

That is, they should do that just before they leave.

The American Medical Association calls on the DOJ to crack down on reporters who expose doctors performing sex change surgeries on children

The Gateway Pundit quotes an AMA letter where the group calls on the DOJ to investigate reporters exposing doctors performing child gender surgeries and administering puberty blockers to young children.

Well, it worked for the National School Board Association. Leading medical organizations the American Medical Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Children’s Hospital Association released a letter Monday addressed to Biden Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding action to investigate and crack down on reporters who have exposed hospitals across the country for performing gender surgery on children as young as 14 and 15 while also giving puberty blocking chemicals to children.

The letter also demands tech platforms Twitter, TikTok and Meta (owner of Facebook and Instagram) crack down on the reporters’ accounts.

LibsofTikTok, who has reported extensively on doctors and hospitals promoting (and recruiting children for) gender surgery and chemical puberty blockers, was recently suspended by Twitter for a week for “hateful conduct”–one of several suspensions this year of that account by Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Reporter Christopher Rufo posted a copy of the letter (text posted further below), saying, ” The American Medical Association is asking Big Tech and the Department of Justice to censor, deplatform, investigate, and prosecute journalists who question the orthodoxy of radical gender surgeries for minors, arguing that public criticism is “disinformation.”…This is now the Left’s playbook: last year, the National School Board Association, Department of Justice, and F.B.I. worked together to label parents who opposed critical race theory “domestic terrorists.” They want to stifle dissent, suppress speech, and criminalize opposition.”

“The morality of this situation is blindingly clear: “Threatening hospitals is wrong. Censoring journalists is wrong. Criminalizing political opposition is wrong. Surgically removing a child’s genitalia is wrong.”…If “gender-affirming care” is so good, the activists and doctors who promote it—and profit from it—should defend their practices in the realm public opinion. In a democracy, everyone gets to weigh in on important issues, not just regime-approved apparatchiks.”

(Read at the Gateway Pundit of more deplatforming and other tricks)

When the AMA accepted transgenderism as a treatable condition and not gender dysphoria, it became another branch of the Democrat party

Maybe the move in the AMA to being part of the Democrat party started even before the move from gender dysphoria. Maybe it started with their acceptance of abortionists and the associated money.

Therefore, why should we be surprised that one branch of the Democrat party (the AMA branch that disfigures children for money or terminates them for money) would reach our to the political branch (the White House) to push the legal branch (the DOJ) into suppressing unaffiliated journalists.

Five studies on the COVID jab that people should really see

The Conservative Review makes note of five studies that go counter to the prevailing message on the COVID jab.

“In summary, we have highlighted the pitfalls of having considered until now COVID-19 mRNA vaccines as just conventional vaccines, and we have indicated the preclinical, clinical and post-marketing safety assessments that are most urgently needed. COVID-19 mRNA vaccines are actually pharmaceutical drugs, and consequently their pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, and possibly also their pharmacogenetics, must be properly characterized to provide a solid background of knowledge for their rational and targeted use, thus stopping ‘playing dice’ with these products due to the misbelief that the same vaccine at the same dose is good for everyone, and that adverse effects occur just by chance.”

Those were the words of Italian researchers in a recent pharmacological analysis of the COVID shots published in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences nearly two years after these products were foisted upon 5.35 billion human beings – often multiple times – under the false pretense of the jabs acting like vaccines. Who will be held accountable?

Every day, news pours out about the lack of safety and ineffectiveness of the shots, but they fail to move the needle on policy. It is unclear what it will take to get these biological agents pulled from the market, but here are some of the most recent bombshells proving the shots are extremely unsafe and ineffective:

Autopsy shows extensive brain and heart damage: Nearly two years into this mass genocide, global governments have refused to conduct widespread autopsies on those who died suddenly shortly after getting the shots. They have also rebuffed calls to release the data and analysis on those autopsies they did conduct. One can only imagine what we would learn about the extent of the danger, but now we have a glimpse from an autopsy of a 76-year-old man with Parkinson’s disease who died three weeks after receiving a third dose. The case study published by German pathologists in the prestigious journal “Vaccines” found severe inflammation in the brain tissue and heart attributable to the shots.

The pathologists used immunohistochemistry, which utilizes staining techniques to light up only specific antigens, in this case only the spike protein native to the shots, not the nucleocapsid protein from the virus. What did they find?

“However, histopathological analyses of the brain uncovered previously unsuspected findings, including acute vasculitis (predominantly lymphocytic) as well as multifocal necrotizing encephalitis of unknown etiology with pronounced inflammation including glial and lymphocytic reaction. In the heart, signs of chronic cardiomyopathy as well as mild acute lympho-histiocytic myocarditis and vasculitis were present” (emphasis added).

Importantly, they only found spike antibodies without any nucleocapsid antibodies, meaning that this individual was only exposed to the shots, not to the actual virus. Until now, many pharma apologists blamed the rash of sudden encephalitis and myocarditis cases on the virus, but as the authors note, “The findings corroborate previous reports of encephalitis and myocarditis caused by gene-based COVID-19 vaccines.”


With findings like this, how can every case of a sudden death post-vaccination not be immediately investigated with pathology to determine if this phenomenon is occurring in a significant portion of the population? Where is the emergency to get ahead of this and detect, diagnose, and treat people before it’s too late? After all, only 5.3 billion people are potentially affected.

Negative efficacy galore: Imagine engaging in societal apartheid and persecuting those who didn’t get the jabs on the assumption that they are spreaders of disease but then discovering that, in fact, the opposite is true? I’ve been reporting on negative efficacy for over a year already, but now we have a Kaiser Permanganate study that shows negative efficacy of the shots against all variants within 150 days. And this study shows the more you inject, the more you infect; specifically, over time, those with three doses fare worse than those with two.

The American Association of Physicians and Surgeons posted a Twitter thread with numerous studies published throughout the past year showing a similar trend of negative efficacy resulting from the shots.

One of the likely culprits for negative efficacy is that the shots prime the body to respond to a version of the virus that has long since changed, thereby making the natural immune response misfire. Supporters of endless jabs will suggest that this is why they created the new bivalent shot for BA.5 (the one that was studied in eight mice and no humans). However, an entirely new variant is already surging, rendering this shot just as irrelevant and likely counterproductive. According to the CDC, BA.4.6 now represents 13% of all COVID-19 cases and is rising sharply, with some other variants breaking out as well.

Negative efficacy even against death: Well, at least the shots still work against critical illness, right? Wrong! Deaths have largely plummeted across all groups given that Omicron is not nearly as pathogenic as the previous versions of the virus, but data continues to show the overwhelming number of deaths to be among the vaccinated. It turns out that in the month of June, 92% of all COVID deaths in Canada were among the vaccinated, even though they composed a slightly smaller share of the population (85%). Even more telling is the fact that 81% of the deaths were among those who had three or more doses, even though those individuals only account for 34% of the population.

Neonatal deaths: Remember when Scotland suffered a sudden rash of neonatal deaths last September? At the time, 21 newborns had died in a month, triggering an investigation because the numbers rose above an upper control limit for the first time in four years. Neonatal deaths hit 4.9 per 1,000 live births, on a par with levels that were last seen in the late 1980s. This was an astounding phenomenon, yet the investigation yielded no cause other than disproving COVID as a culprit. But notice that the COVID shots were never investigated. Well, now the data is triggering another investigation, as at least 18 newborns died within four weeks of birth during the month of March 2022, the equivalent of 4.6 per 1,000 births. Here is the trend line from Public Health Scotland:

Notice the spikes above baseline beginning right around the beginning of 2021 and accelerating in two peaks later on. What major biological product was mass-distributed around that time? Obviously this alone doesn’t prove any causation, but the fact that we know the spike protein goes into the reproductive system and breast milk, menstrual irregularities are ubiquitous, so many countries are experiencing record low birth rates around the same time, and these shots are otherwise extremely inflammatory in the adult population, wouldn’t you think there would be some interest in investigating the shots as a potential suspect?


Other countries experienced this problem as well. In Iceland, deaths among infants doubled in 2021 from the baseline level of the preceding nine years. Several Israeli hospitals saw similar trends in stillbirths and miscarriages.

Adverse events in nursing babies: We already know that the therapeutic can pass through the mother’s milk from lactating women who get the shots. Now, a new study published in JAMA, which was bizarrely designed to make the shots look safe, actually reveals that 3.5% of the women reported a decrease in breast milk supply and 1.2% reported “issues with their breastmilk-fed infant after vaccination.” They decline to describe the nature of those issues, but the fact that they can so casually report this as if these numbers are good news is shocking.

So, in summary, these are five reasons not to get the jab

Don’t get the jab because:

  • It damages your heart and brain
  • The more jabs you get, the more likely you are to get COVID
  • Being fully vaccinated seems to make it more likely to die of COVID
  • Newborn children of vaccinated parents are more likely to die
  • Nursing babies are negatively affected


When Cheney shuts up on the 6 January 2021 riot, I will think about blogging fewer posts on 2020 election fraud

As a point of reference, on 11 April 2022, I searched on Virtual Mirage using the terms “Cheney, 6 January” and came up with a list of 60 articles published in 2022 that referred to Liz Cheney and her actions taken against the 6 January 2021 protesters.

In Arizona, Trump lost by 10,457 votes. Over 11K votes were found to have been cast without proof of citizenship

The Washington Examiner explores the review of the Maricopa County 2020 election.

States can demand proof of citizenship for voting, but shouldn't all states require citizenship for voting?A blockbuster review of Maricopa County’s mismanaged 2020 election by Arizona’s attorney general is raising new questions about the final vote in a state former President Donald Trump was expected to win but lost to Joe Biden by 10,457 ballots.

“We have reached the conclusion that the 2020 election in Maricopa County revealed serious vulnerabilities that must be addressed and raises questions about the 2020 election in Arizona,” said an “interim report” issued today by Attorney General Mark Brnovich.

The 12-page report, reviewed by Secrets, did not condemn the county’s handling of the election outright but raised enough questions about voter identification, ballot handling, and counting to prompt Brnovich to call for a vast tightening of the rules.

It also revealed that he is readying criminal and civil fraud charges against some individuals the attorney general’s Election Integrity Unit has probed.

“The EIU’s review has uncovered instances of election fraud by individuals who have been or will be prosecuted for various election crimes,” said the report on its first page. The investigation is ongoing.

The report followed an Arizona Senate probe into the election and ballots in the state’s most populated county. In his follow-up review, Brnovich found serious irregularities with how signatures were verified and ballots safely transported in a state where some 80% voted by mail or absentee.

Brnovich, who has led the nation in calling for election integrity laws and even won a Supreme Court case on the issue, said in his report, “Whether we agree with peoples’ reasons for questioning election integrity or not, we should go above and beyond our call of duty to assure Americans that each legal vote was counted, and no illegal votes were allowed.”

The issue, and his calls for reform, could directly impact his future, as he is running in the GOP Senate primary to take on Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly in the fall.

Among the key findings in his report to Senate President Karen Fann:

  • Maricopa officials were not cooperative with his demands for information.
  • In many cases, election officials were given less than five seconds to verify voter signatures on file with ballots filed early.
  • The number of ballots nullified because of problems dropped even though those filed nearly doubled in 2020.
  • There were “multiple violations” in how about 20% of ballots in drop boxes were handled and delivered to election offices.
  • Some $8 million in outside funds and grants were used in the vote count, now illegal under a recently passed law. Notably, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and his wife funded more than half of that.

“We can report that there were problematic system-wide issues that relate to early ballot handling and verification,” said the report.

Democrats found weaknesses in laws and drove Mack trucks of votes through them

It seems that Maricopa County skirted chain-of-custody protocol.

Appeals court sides with Louisiana Attorney General Landry regarding the “Zuckerbucks” election lawsuit

In a statement by the Louisiana Attorney General, it seems that the lawsuit against Mark Zuckerberg actions in Louisiana will go back into action.

 In a major win for election integrity, a Louisiana Court of Appeal has sided with Attorney General Jeff Landry in his lawsuit against the Mark Zuckerberg-funded Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL) over private funding of elections.

After a district judge dismissed the suit over CTCL violating state law by trying to inject private funds into our election system during the 2020 presidential election cycle, a three-judge panel at the Third Circuit yesterday reversed that decision and remanded the case back to the trial court.

“Our law is clear: no individual, including Mark Zuckerberg, should supersede the people’s elected representatives,” said Attorney General Landry. “Our elections should never be for sale; private money should not fund our elections.”

The appellate court agreed with Attorney General Landry that the trial court’s conclusion was “legally incorrect” – ruling that Attorney General Landry “has stated a cause of action to protect an interest of the state by preventing the funding of elections with private money.”

“I applaud the great work done by my Assistant Attorneys General Jeffrey Wale, Carey Jones, Jeddie Smith, and Ryan Montegut,” continued Attorney General Landry. “My office and I will continue to defend Louisiana’s election system against improper influence.”

(Read the Third Circuit opinion at the Louisiana Attorney General site)

From reading this article, the illegal activity that Zuckerberg’s group undertook seems unclear

While this article never spells out the exact offenses that the Attorney General tracked, if they were anything like the cases found in Arizona, then we need to control the vote by adhering to the law. That means that non-citizens do not vote. That means that people go through the proper steps to get registered (providing the required means of identification and proof of residency).

Additionally, in most states, that means that votes do not get gathered by a third party and delivered to the state. Hence, no more ballot harvesting.

Three Milwaukee city officials are being accused of election bribery for accepting “Zucker bucks”

The Western Journal reports on Milwaukee corruption related to acceptance of “Zucker bucks.”

Three city officials of Milwaukee are being accused of election bribery for accepting “Zuck bucks” to beef up in-person and absentee voting and to fund illegal privately-funded absentee ballot drop boxes, according to the Thomas More Society.

Zucker bucks are monies from the Chicago-based Center for Tech and Civic Life, which was funded by billionaire Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, and his wife, Priscilla Chan.

As a result of a CTCL Zucker bucks “bribery scheme,” the Wisconsin Office of the Special Counsel last month suggested state legislators consider decertifying the state’s election results that favored Joe Biden, according to The Washington Times.

The Thomas More Society, a public interest law firm “dedicated to restoring respect in law for life, family, and religious liberty,” filed before the Wisconsin Elections Commission on behalf of a voter an accusation of CTCL-based election bribery against Milwaukee’s acting mayor, former mayor and the city clerk.

“The complaint alleges that the City of Milwaukee’s privately funded absentee ballot drop boxes in the 2020 election were illegal under multiple Wisconsin Statutes and violated federal law,” according to a Thomas More Society news release regarding the March 23 filing.

Similar complaints against CTCL occurred in Wisconsin cities of Racine, Green Bay, Kenosha and Madison.

Local and state governments are pushing back against such “dark money,” including a pair of Wisconsin counties, Walworth and Brown.

“This is representative of a national trend,” Thomas More Society Special Counsel Erick Kaardal said. “Sixteen states have now passed legislation to ban or regulate the acceptance and use of private funds by public election officers.”

Arizona, Georgia and Texas have banned dark money, according to Kaardal, while Minnesota, Iowa and South Carolina are regulating it.

As uncovered by Project Veritas during the last presidential cycle, this even happens in Texas

While electoral corruption may occur just about anywhere (even in Texas), it is disheartening to discover it anywhere. Much less, it really rubs wrong when a platform that primarily trends to the conservative spectrum gets used by the founder to support a socialist. This is where people, like myself, should abandon Facebook.

About a year ago, I stopped looking at Facebook to keep up with family. A month ago, I deleted the app from my phone. Now, I need to delete my profiles and have WordPress stop publishing my posts to Facebook (since, very likely, those posts have been shadow banned into oblivion anyway).

The FBI kidnapping caper was a flagrant case of election interference

American Greatness outlines all of the manners in which the failed attempt by the Federal Bureau of Investigation to stage the “kidnapping” of Governor Whitmer by way of set-up “right-wing” conspirators.

On October 8, 2020, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer announced shocking news: federal authorities had arrested several men for conspiring to kidnap and possibly kill her before Election Day. After indulging in a moment of self-pity, Whitmer quickly pinned the blame on President Trump, a man with whom Whitmer had engaged in a very public feud throughout 2020 over pandemic-related lockdowns.

Trump, Whitmer claimed, fueled the rage of alleged white supremacists and right-wing militias responsible for the dastardly abduction plot. “When our leaders meet with, encourage, or fraternize with domestic terrorists, they legitimize their actions,” Whitmer said in a televised speech. “And they are complicit.”

Earlier that day, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel, also a Democrat, and officials from the U.S. Department of Justice detailed the charges in a separate press conference. “Last night, the FBI and Michigan State Police arrested six individuals charged in a criminal complaint with conspiring to kidnap the governor of Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer,” explained Andrew Birge, assistant U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Michigan. The defendants, Birge claimed, plotted to kidnap Whitmer from her vacation cottage “before the November election.”

His office took the lead in prosecuting the six defendants, who also faced weapons of mass destruction charges.

Exactly 18 months to the day, Birge’s prosecutors suffered a humiliating defeat in a Grand Rapids courtroom after a jury acquitted two of the men and deadlocked on the guilt of two others. (Two defendants pleaded guilty and testified for the government during the three-week trial). Despite endless resources and favorable rulings by the judge overseeing the case, the government failed to secure a single conviction in what the Justice Department considered one of its largest domestic terror investigations ever.

Daniel Harris and Brandon Caserta, after a year and a half in prison, went home to their families on Friday night; Adam Fox, the alleged ringleader, and Barry Croft, Jr. remain incarcerated while Birge’s office prepares to retry the men—a fool’s errand, as they didn’t know each other prior to the FBI’s involvement in the faux plot and live almost 1,000 miles apart. (Croft resides in Delaware.) It’s a desperate attempt to save face, regardless of the lives and the principles of justice at stake.

Not only were jurors unpersuaded by Birge’s prosecutors, the jury instead seemed to believe defense attorneys’ arguments that their clients were entrapped by the FBI. At least a dozen FBI undercover agents and informants, working out of numerous FBI field offices across the eastern half of the country and at the direction of supervising agents, concocted and funded the sting operation. Dan Chappel, the main informant compensated at least $60,000 by the FBI for “bringing people together,” as his FBI handler ordered him, took the stand to explain his role. But his testimony was lackluster and ultimately did not convince the jury the men were guilty.

The Justice Department and FBI have lots of explaining to do—so, too, does Andrew Birge. Hundreds of hours of secret recordings and thousands of texts fail to prove what Birge said in his initial press conference: there was no evidence to support his claim that the defendants wanted to “kidnap” Whitmer before Election Day. After all, if no kidnapping conspiracy or legitimate threat existed, no deadline existed, either.

The only people pushing to do something big before Election Day resided in the J. Edgar Hoover Building in Washington, D.C..

In a redux of the 2016 Trump-Russia collusion farce designed to sabotage Trump before Election Day, the FBI used its powerful resources to again interfere in a presidential election to help the Democratic nominee for president. News of the arrests made national headlines for days; Joe Biden made the most of the political gift to his campaign. “There is a throughline from President Trump’s dog whistles and tolerance of hate, vengeance, and lawlessness to plots such as this one,” Biden said in a statement released on October 8, 2020. “He is giving oxygen to the bigotry and hate we see on the march in our country.”

At a campaign stop with Kamala Harris in Arizona later that day, Biden blasted Trump for his alleged coddling of “white supremacists” and accused the president of “breath[ing] oxygen to those who are filled with hate and danger.” A week later, in an unhinged tirade at another campaign event in Michigan, Biden continued to blame Trump. “All President Trump does is fan the flames of hatred and division in this country!” Biden screamed from the stage. “What the hell’s the matter with this guy? When the president tweeted ‘Liberate Michigan, Liberate Michigan,’ that’s the call that was heard. That was the dog whistle.”

The media portrayed Whitmer as a victim of Trump’s bullying—and Whitmer fully embraced the role. In a Washington Post op-ed published on October 9, 2020, Whitmer accused Trump of encouraging “domestic terrorists.” When a sympathetic Chuck Todd interviewed Whitmer on “Meet the Press” several days later and asked how she was personally coping with the pretend threat against her, Whitmer condemned the president for continuing to criticize her lockdown policies “after a plot to kidnap, put me on trial and execute me,” was uncovered. She again accused Trump of inciting “domestic terrorism,” a claim she repeated during an interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on October 21, 2020.

This seems to be a repeat of the Strozk/Page testimony of the Muller testimony

It looks like this, like the Peter Strozk/Lisa Page fiasco of the tawdry FBI, was nothing but a partisan effort by a group of biased, liberal law enforcement officials intent on keeping Trump from being elected.


Facebook, Google, Twitter, and the White House

Do you:

  • Remember how Facebook censored critical information about Biden’s crooked dealings in Ukraine and China
  • Remember how Mark Zuckerberg flooded Democrat districts with Zucker bucks (hidden as COVID relief)
  • Remember how Biden’s transition team was full of Facebook, Google, and Twitter moguls
  • Remember how Biden admitted to coordinating with Facebook to suppress “misinformation”
  • Know that the “whistleblower” helped hide the Hunter Biden story on Facebook
  • Know what two Democrat powerhouses represent this supposed “whistleblower”
  • Really believe this isn’t a plant to get conservatives to destroy themselves on social media?

Breitbart exposes five of Big Tech’s most serious acts of censorship

Breitbart exposes five of Big Tech’s most serious acts of censorship in a 10 May 2021 article. Here are the first two points.

Mark-ZuckerbergOver the past year, Big Tech has greatly increased the rate of censorship online. Breitbart News has reported on these efforts extensively, here are five of the most serious acts of censorship by the Silicon Valley Masters of the Universe.

The Masters of the Universe have made a number of attempts to take further control of speech on the internet. Whether that means blacklisting public figures that they dislike or cracking down on the types of content considered acceptable to discuss online, tech giants have worked hard to further limit open discussion online.

Here are five examples of recent censorship attempts by the self-appointed Silicon Valley Masters of the Universe:

1: All Major Social Media Platform Blacklist Former President Trump

In January 2021, following riots at Capitol Hill, a number of social media firms took action against then-President Trump alleging that his rhetoric contributed to the Capitol hill events. In response, Facebook permanently suspended President Trump, as did Twitter.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg stated at the time:

The shocking events of the last 24 hours clearly demonstrate that President Donald Trump intends to use his remaining time in office to undermine the peaceful and lawful transition of power to his elected successor, Joe Biden.

His decision to use his platform to condone rather than condemn the actions of his supporters at the Capitol building has rightly disturbed people in the US and around the world. We removed these statements yesterday because we judged that their effect — and likely their intent — would be to provoke further violence.

Following the certification of the election results by Congress, the priority for the whole country must now be to ensure that the remaining 13 days and the days after inauguration pass peacefully and in accordance with established democratic norms.

Over the last several years, we have allowed President Trump to use our platform consistent with our own rules, at times removing content or labeling his posts when they violate our policies. We did this because we believe that the public has a right to the broadest possible access to political speech, even controversial speech. But the current context is now fundamentally different, involving use of our platform to incite violent insurrection against a democratically elected government.

We believe the risks of allowing the President to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great. Therefore, we are extending the block we have placed on his Facebook and Instagram accounts indefinitely and for at least the next two weeks until the peaceful transition of power is complete.

Twitter similarly banned Trump, stating: “After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence.”

Politicians and commentators from across the political spectrum, including former Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard, liberal journalist Glenn Greenwald, and countless conservative lawmakers warned that this is a threat to freedom of speech and democracy.

It was reported a few days after Trump’s ban that German Chancellor Angela Merkel was also worried by the suspension of Trump from the platforms, stating that the bannings were “problematic” and she did not believe that social media management should be able to interfere with the right of freedom of expression.

Facebook has since referred its decision to ban Trump to the Facebook Oversight Board which has the ability to overrule Facebook’s decision. The board operates independently from Facebook – but every member of it receives a salary from Facebook.

The board recently voted to temporarily uphold the ban on former President Trump’s accounts on the platform. The board has reportedly told Facebook that it has six months to announce an end date to the former President’s suspension or permanently delete his pages.

The board stated that Facebook cannot “make up the rules as it goes along,” by banning some users for a set amount of time and others indefinitely. Read more at Breitbart News here.

2: Facebook, Twitter Heavily Suppress New York Post‘s Hunter Biden Bombshell

In October of last year, Facebook and Twitter simultaneously worked to suppress a bombshell news article from the New York Post that indicated contrary to his previous denials that Joe Biden met with an adviser to the board of Burisma while he was vice president, arranged by his son Hunter, who was then working as a lobbyist for the company.

Facebook massively reduced the distribution of the article on its platform, shortly afterward Twitter marked links to the story as “unsafe,” and eventually locked the official New York Post Twitter account.

Breitbart News reported at the time:

The story made the front page of the Post, which also reveals that the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee is investigating emails provided to it by a whistleblower, allegedly between Hunter Biden and executives at Burisma.

His father has previously said, “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings.”

But according to emails obtained by the Post, Hunter introduced his father to a Burisma executive less than a year before the then-vice president pressured the Ukrainian government into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company.

Facebook spokesman and former Democrat staffer Andy Stone announced the decision on Twitter, and also practically invited Facebook’s supposedly neutral fact-checkers to challenge the story.

Significantly, the social network took the rare step of acting in advance of a decision by its “third-party fact-checkers,” on which it usually relies on to defer responsibility for censoring news publishers.

That move is practically unprecedented, arguably protecting the former vice president from a major political scandal at a critical time in the 2020 election.

“While I will intentionally not link to the New York Post, I want be clear that this story is eligible to be fact checked by Facebook’s third-party fact checking partners,” said Stone. “In the meantime, we are reducing its distribution on our platform.”

On October 30, 2020, Breitbart News reported that the New York Post’s official Twitter account had been unlocked. Twitter explained its reasoning in a series of tweets, writing:

What amazes me is that, with all of this censorship of conservatives, Zuckerberg still felt a need to flood Democrat areas with Zucker bucks

What gets me is the way that Zuckerberg augmented his censorship of conservatives with a funding of efforts across Democrat areas in all 50 states (often masquerading as coronavirus relief).

Facebook and Twitter censor Biden bombshells weeks after execs join his transition team

In a 15 October 2020 Breitbart article, we find that Facebook and Twitter executives censored information on Hunter Biden emails shortly after those executives joined the Biden transition team.

Following the publication of the New York Post‘s bombshell story about the Biden family’s business dealings in Ukraine, Facebook and Twitter worked hard to suppress the story across their platforms. The censorship comes just weeks after executives from both firms joined the Biden transition team.

Breitbart News recently reported on the New York Post’s bombshell story that indicated that Joe Biden may have met with an adviser to the board of Burisma while he was Vice President, arranged by his son Hunter, who was working as a lobbyist for the company at the time. Joe Biden has previously said, “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings.”

But, the leaked emails allegedly show that Hunter introduced his father to a Bursima executive less than a year before Biden, acting as Vice President, pressured the Ukrainian government into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company. Shortly after the story broke, many found themselves having trouble sharing it across social media. This censorship comes just weeks after executives from both Facebook and Twitter joined the Biden transition team.

Breitbart News reported in September that Twitter Public Policy Director Carlos Monje left the social media company to join the transition team for Joe Biden. Monje’s specific role on the team has not been made clear and Biden’s transition team reportedly declined to comment on the situation.

Despite a specific role not being named, Monje will reportedly be serving as co-chair of Biden’s infrastructure policy committee and has already helped to host a fundraiser for Biden this week, according to an invitation sent to Politico.

Monje has worked in the world of presidential transition politics in the past, previously serving as the director of agency review on the team that prepared for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s administration, which failed to take flight. Monje also worked on the Obama administration team’s 2008 national security working group according to his LinkedIn profile.

Monje also acted as deputy policy director during Obama’s first run for office and subsequently served as a senior policy advisor and special assistant to the president on the Domestic Policy Council. Monje’s final years in the administration were spent in the Transporation Department before he departed for Twitter.

In October, Breitbart News further reported that Biden’s transition team had hired top Facebook executive Jessica Hertz to its general counsel to oversee ethical issues. The move reportedly came as the campaign struggles with Facebook to have posts by President Trump censored on the platform. This is the second Big Tech executive to join Biden’s campaign. Hertz will reportedly be responsible for “enforcement, oversight, and compliance” of the ethics plan that Biden’s team unveiled this week.

New York Post op-ed editor Sohrab Ahmari was one of the first to note that Twitter was blocking him from posting a link to the Biden-Ukraine story, claiming that the link was “potentially harmful.”

Here we have proof of a propaganda system denying news that hurts Biden and promoting news that hurts Trump

With Facebook and Twitter blocking stories about the Biden emails, a good portion of the nation has not heard of Hunter and Joe Biden’s misdeeds. With Reddit’s initial blocking of the story, numbers who will visit the polls today may remain uninformed.

And the left calls Trump’s followers the next generation of Hitler. They have truly earned the title of Goebbels’ protégés.

Biden regime admits it tells Facebook what to censor

LifeSiteNews comments on the time the Biden regime admitted to telling Facebook what to censor.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki admitted Thursday that the Biden administration has been telling Facebook what posts it wants taken down, inadvertently giving potentially significant ammunition to a legal recourse for online censorship that conservatives only recently began exploring.

The Daily Caller reports that during Thursday’s press conference Psaki called on Facebook to release “data on the reach of COVID-19 vaccine misinformation,” to “create a robust enforcement strategy that bridges their properties and provides transparency about the rules,” take “faster action against harmful posts,” and promote “quality information sources in their feed algorithm.”

But the most eyebrow-raising portion of her remarks was her confirmation that “we’re flagging problematic posts for Facebook that spread disinformation.” Facebook declined the Caller’s request for comment on the revelation.

From the beginning of Facebook, there has been much censorship of the Right mixed with some tolerance of the Right (but only enough to get our money)

Somehow, I can imagine that the Lefties at Facebook think themselves very tolerant (since they do not banish every dissenting illiberal thought). However, the liberal platform finds every way to block:

Facebook “whistleblower” was part of team that censored Hunter Biden laptop story

We find through the PostMillenial that the “whistleblower” participated in censoring the Hunter Biden story.

The Facebook civic integrity team that leftist activist whistleblower Frances Haugen was a member of, worked to counter misinformation about the 2020 election.

Which in October of last year meant making the decision to suppress the Hunter Biden laptop story and the New York Post’s reporting on it.

Project Veritas whistleblowers haven’t gotten the same mainstream media attention and praise as Frances Haugen has, after coming out publicly to 60 Minutes earlier this week.

I have to admit that I was drawn in by the “whistleblower” stance and the tales of harm to girls

Initially, it was tempting to be pulled in by the tale of having a “whistleblower” attack a company on the left. Additionally, my parental instincts came into play when I heard of the ways children were knowingly being harmed by Facebook (and I am sure that they are).

However, this is all too convenient. It folds too quickly into the hands of the left and becomes a well-fashioned weapon to strike down the smaller right-leaning platforms (Parler, FrankSpeech, Rumble, and others) that have started to provide competition to Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube.

Further, this movement will likely end with pushing conservative speech completely off of the liberal platforms (Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, and others). They will deem conservatives “too dangerous to be heard.”

Facebook whistleblower is leftist activist represented by lawyer for “whistleblower” behind Trump impeachment

The Daily Wire reports that the Facebook “whistleblower” is a plant who is represented by the law firm of Eric Ciaramelli and the PR firm of Jen Psaki.

The Facebook whistleblower, Frances Haugen, has a record of donations to far-left Democrats and a history of raising issues about purported bias while at previous employers, a Daily Wire review found. She is working with Democrat operatives to roll out her complaint and has the same lawyers as the anonymous Ukraine “whistleblower” whose allegations led to Donald Trump’s impeachment, but who reportedly turned out to be then-Vice President Joe Biden’s top advisor on the country.

In a previous role at Pinterest, Frances Haugen was behind a “recent change to give users the option to filter searches to specific skin tones.” At Gigster, she gave a talk on how “if we don’t build with an eye towards inclusion, we can end up enshrining bias.”

In 2015, she complained that Google was not inclusive enough of women, saying: “I didn’t realize the way I had been worn down by being a woman in tech… the last team I was on at Google, it had a transsexual Eng[ineering] director, and as a result we had more transsexual women than cis women on our team, which also says something sad about the number of women in tech.”

“You don’t see them in major tech companies and when you do see them in major tech companies you see them in places that are in support roles like marketing or perhaps sales. I think that’s a problem,” she said.

This requires a hat tip to Bunkerville.

Jack Posobiec proves his point through sarcasm

At this point, I would like to point out that WordPress really lacks a lot when it comes to internal links within articles. It should be able to use the “id” feature of headings. It cannot.


Democrats may have incentivized them, but these actions also come from the heart of social media companies

GoDaddy cuts service from Texas pro-life group’s website used to report violators of abortion law

The Blaze reports that GoDaddy has cut service from a pro-life group.

GoneDaddyWeb hosting provider GoDaddy cut service to a website belonging to the pro-life group Texas Right to Life, telling the group late Thursday it had 24 hours to find new hosting services for its whistleblower tip website,

The group built the website to solicit anonymous tips on people who break a new Texas law that bans abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected. The Supreme Court declined this week to block the law from taking effect.

What is the background?

As Texas Right to Life noted on its online tip website, the Texas law is unique:

The Texas Heartbeat Act is unique because it calls upon private citizens to hold abortion providers and their enablers accountable. Any person can sue any abortion provider who kills an unborn child after six weeks of gestation—and any person can sue anyone who aids or abets these illegal abortions. All of these individuals must pay damages to the person who sued them of at least $10,000 for each illegal abortion that they perform or assist.

In response, social media activists flooded the website with fake tips, the New York Times reported. When that failed to take down the website, Gizmodo’s Shoshana Wodinsky suggested activists target the host of the website, GoDaddy.

So, protect a baby’s beating heart and get de-platformed

While giving up one’s free speech rights for the life of a baby seems like a small sacrifice, it also makes the mission of Texas Right to Life impossible to achieve in that they depend on their ability to convince others of their point of view. By silencing them, GoDaddy has deprived them of their lifeline to the rest of the world.

Therefore, I would argue that GoDaddy has created an argument against any conservative support for its existence.

Biden’s Department of “Justice” shields social media from 6 January scrutiny in court

The Washington Times points out how Biden’s Department of “Justice” shielded social media from 6 January scrutiny in court.

GoogleFacebookTwitterThe Biden team is omitting the degree to which Jan. 6 rioters relied on Facebook, Twitter, and Google — the Democratic Party’s best censorship friends. 

Here’s how. 

Government lawyers prosecuting Jan. 6 Capitol rioters have filed an inventory in the U.S. District Court of the Justice Department’s huge stock of evidence, including posted videos and photos. It is a grand tour of what they hold as opposed to specific documents. Prosecutors are required by law to turn over evidence to defense attorneys as part of pre-trial discovery.

The 13-page memo leaves out the social media platforms that often do the Democratic Party’s bidding. Instead, the Justice Department document focuses on a single conservative-favored app, Parler, although Donald Trump’s “Stop the Steal” supporters made extensive use of Facebook and Twitter. Parler is the same site those liberal big tech firms temporarily put out of business until it reemerged on another Internet host.

Republicans last winter warned there was a liberal campaign brewing to protect big tech from Jan. 6 scrutiny. 

The DoJ memo, “United States’ Memorandum Regarding Status of Discovery,” prepared by the “Capitol Breach Discovery Coordinator,” seems to prove it.

The memo also underscores the political priority of President Biden to paint America’s No. 1 threat here and abroad as homegrown “white supremacists.” They are everywhere ready to destroy the country, Mr. Biden says, as does his attorney general, Merrick Garland.

Mr. Garland told a Senate panel in May, “In the FBI’s view, the top domestic violent extremist threat we face comes from racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists, specifically those who advocate for the superiority of the white race.”

This is why the Justice memo is so interesting. The Jan. 6 breach is likely the most photographed, filmed, and texted crime-in-progress — before, during, and after.

When the evidence list gets to social media accounting, prosecutors mentioned just one platform relied on by invaders: “A collection of over one million Parler posts, replies, and related data.” “A collection of over one million Parler videos and images (approximately 20 terabytes of data).”

And then, under the heading, “Systematic Reviews of Voluminous Materials.”

“Comparing all known identifiers of any charged defendant against tips, Parler data, ad tech data, cell tower data, and geofence data.”

By this evidence-disclosure filing, you would think that Parler alone played the role of Jan. 6 Capitol riot communications center. It was not alone.

Perhaps there were more total social media posts on Parler than Facebook, Twitter, and Google’s YouTube. 

But the Washington Times showed in a story I authored in February––a month into the Justice Department investigation — that Facebook by far was the most mentioned platform in over 160 law enforcement affidavits justifying the arrests of alleged invaders. 

(Read about the affidavits the Times cited and the social media platforms implicated at the Washington Times

All along, we have been fed the lie that Parler supplied information to the “insurrectionists” on 6 January

From the beginning, we heard that Parler provided a means of communication for the “insurrectionists” on 6 January. From observing the events of the day and comparing them to the real riots occurring in Democrat cities since 2019, we knew that what occurred on 6 January was little more than a few idiots mixed in with  quite a few peaceful protesters who supported President Trump. Now we know that the liberal social media platforms were the main means of communication.

This comes as no surprise.

Flood of Cuban protesters rise up against the communist regime

Dictatorship quickly shut down social media feeds

The Washington Times reported in a 11 July 2021 article (nearly now forgotten) on the protest of the communist regime in Cuba and how Internet access was denied (just as news goes unreported State-side).

Cubans took to the streets Sunday in what Cuban activists and U.S. politicians are calling the biggest demonstrations in decades.

According to social media feeds, which Cuba’s communist dictatorship quickly shut down as U.S. news outlets began collecting them, hundreds of citizens shouted “freedom” to protest shortages of food and medicine in several cities across the island.

“The people are dying of hunger!” one woman shouted in Spanish during an Artemisa province protest posted on Facebook. “Our children are dying of hunger!”

In another video, a police car in the city of Cardenas was overturned by protesters.

There also was social media evidence of protests in San Antonio de los Baños and Palma Soriano, The New York Times reported.

Carolina Barrero, a Cuban activist, called the protests “spontaneous, frontal and forceful,” and a challenge to a regime that has kept an iron lid on dissent since taking power when Dwight Eisenhower was U.S. president.

“It is the most massive popular demonstration to protest the government that we have experienced in Cuba since ’59,” she told the Times by text message.

“What has happened is enormous,” she added.

Julie Chung, acting assistant secretary of state of Western Hemisphere affairs, expressed concern on Twitter about reported “calls to combat” against the protesters. She was the most senior Biden administration official to comment publicly on the unrest in Havana Sunday.

It is always good to see that the press is fairly covering the news and not covering for the socialist left

I enjoy not having to mock a totally delirious press that feels that it must cover for the failings of socialism, the Big Brother Big Tech, and other elements of the left (which could be translated into the babbling of Dementia Joe or Horizontal Harris).

When that happens and they honestly report on an important story like the ongoing protests in Cuba, I will let you know.

YouTube deleted Trump’s CPAC speech and curtailed ACU’s video upload capabilities

The Beauty of Life reports that YouTube deleted Trump’s speech video and restricted ACU’s video upload permissions.

Youtube has recently taken down a video from the American Conservative Union (ACU) in which former President Donald Trump announced that he would file a lawsuit against Big Tech.

In a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference hosted by ACU, the 45th president made clear on Thursday, July 8, that his class-action lawsuit is aimed to force Big Tech to stop censoring the American people, giving some bases for the case amid concerns that the lawsuit would be “dead on arrival.” 

However, YouTube has “issued a strike against” the ACU and “banned the organization from posting for one week,” according to an emailed statement.

“As a result, YouTube has prevented ACU from sharing content from CPAC 2021 Part 2 in Dallas, Texas, including former President Donald Trump’s speech on Sunday, July 11,” the statement said.

The removal came two days after the video was uploaded. Explaining the action, YouTube said that the video contained alleged “medical misinformation” regarding COVID-19 that violated its terms and conditions.

YouTube did not point out exactly how the video “violated” its policies.

“It is clear that YouTube censored CPAC because we stood with former President Donald Trump on his lawsuit against Big Tech,” ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp said in a statement.

“This is yet another example of Big Tech censoring content with which they disagree in order to promote the political positions they favor,” he continued.

“Google’s political biases heavily influence YouTube’s definitions of ‘misinformation’ and that the political beliefs of Google executives take priority over the free speech rights of Google users,” stated the ACU.

ACU also said that the censorship came as former president Trump was touting hydroxychloroquine’s efficiency in COVID-19 early treatment even though his claims “are backed by sound medical research conducted by local health authorities.”

Again we see the biased side of YouTube

This bias and many other instances are the reasons that at least the largest social media companies must be broken up and must lose their Section 230 protections. They routinely act as editors of the public dialog; therefore, they should be treated like editors.

Government demands for Twitter to remove journalist content jump 26%

Zero Hedge goes to multiple sources to expose how Twitter has allowed itself to become a puppet of totalitarians (in America, such have become known as Democrat socialists).

Twitter on Wednesday announced that government demands to remove content posted by journalists and news outlets jumped 26% worldwide in the second half of 2020 vs. the first half of the year, Reuters reports.

According to the company’s transparency report, 199 ‘verified’ journalists and news outlets on its platform were subject to 361 legal demands to remove content – though the social media giant refused to say which countries had submitted them.

After engaging in several conflicts with countries – primarily India – over rules regulating social media content, Twitter announced last week that it had hired an interim chief compliance officer in India, as well as other executives tasked with ensuring that the company adheres to international laws.

In April, Twitter admitted to censoring criticism of the Indian government amid widespread reports that the official government death toll during the pandemic was misrepresented – and the actual figure could be as much as 30 times higher than reported.

As Jonathan Turley noted at the time:

With the support of many Democratic leaders in the United States, Twitter now regularly censors viewpoints in the United States and India had no trouble in enlisting it to crackdown on those raising the alarm over false government reporting.

Buried in an Associated Press story on the raging pandemic and failures of the Indian government are these two lines:

“On Saturday, Twitter complied with the government’s request and prevented people in India from viewing more than 50 tweets that appeared to criticize the administration’s handling of the pandemic. The targeted posts include tweets from opposition ministers critical of Modi, journalists and ordinary Indians.”

The article quotes Twitter as saying that it had powers to “withhold access to the content in India only” if the company determined the content to be “illegal in a particular jurisdiction.” Thus, criticism of the government in this context is illegal so Twitter has agreed to become an arm of the government in censoring information.

Social media covers for Biden

Twitter faces scrutiny as Taliban fighters continue using Big Tech platform during Afghanistan turmoil

Fox News reports on the malfeasance of Twitter as the Taliban uses the platform to coordinate war.

IdiotJoeTwitter continues to face pressure over its decision to allow the Taliban to use its platform while maintaining its ban of former President Donald Trump and censoring other right-leaning American accounts.

A spokesman for the radical Islamist group that has seized control of Afghanistan, Zabihullah Mujahid, has been using the platform to give updates about the group’s advance.

Mujahid’s account is not verified but has nearly 280,000 followers and is regularly cited by major news outlets. He recently tweeted an update on “military units” entering Kabul and wrote that their “advance is continuing normally.” On Tuesday, he used Twitter to announce a press conference that afternoon, and Twitter also allowed him to post warnings and statements as Kabul fell to the radical group.

The situation in Afghanistan is rapidly evolving,” a Twitter spokesperson told Fox News. “We’re also witnessing people in the country using Twitter to seek help and assistance. Twitter’s top priority is keeping people safe, and we remain vigilant.  We are taking steps to safeguard the voices of those on our service who represent protected groups including, humanitarian workers, journalists, news media organisations, human rights activists, and others.

“Our strong and dedicated teams are providing 24/7 global coverage to proactively enforce our rules at scale and swiftly actioning content that violates the Twitter Rules, specifically policies prohibiting glorification of violence, abusive behaviour, hateful conduct, wishes of harm, and gratuitous gore. We have prioritized labeling Tweets to provide context to people on the service who may be seeing examples of misleading or deceptive content that violates our synthetic and manipulated media policy. Our enforcement approach is agile and we will remain transparent about our work as it continues to evolve to address these increasingly complex issues.”

Trump was permanently suspended from Twitter in January for what the Big Tech giant called incitement of violence surrounding the Capitol riot. CNN reporter Donie O’Sullivan, whose outlet was supportive of Trump’s ban, tweeted Tuesday, “The former President of the United States is banned from Twitter but the Taliban is not.”

What have we come to expect after 6 months of a bumbling fool being protected in office by the social media socialists?

It is well past time to break up every last one of the social media giants.

We did it to Standard Oil. We can do it to Google (and Alphabet, their owner). We can do it to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Facebook reiterates ban on content associated with Taliban amid Afghanistan turmoil

The Washington Examiner points out how Facebook has banned any discussion of the Taliban amid Dementia Joe’s fiasco.

Facebook on Tuesday reiterated its ban on accounts that support, praise, or represent the Taliban as the militant group has rapidly swept through much of Afghanistan, including the capital city of Kabul.

The policy, which falls under the company’s Dangerous Organizations provisions, is enforced by a “dedicated team of Afghanistan experts who are native Dari and Pashto speakers, and have knowledge of local context.”

The decision also applies to Instagram and WhatsApp, both of which are owned by Facebook.

“The Taliban is sanctioned as a terrorist organization under U.S. law, and we have banned them from our services under our Dangerous Organization policies,” Facebook told the Washington Examiner in an email.

“Regardless of who holds power, we will take the appropriate action against accounts and content that breaks our rules,” the company added.

The same policy does not appear to be shared by Twitter, as the site allows Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid to broadcast content to his 287,000 followers. He uses social media to assert that the overthrow has been largely peaceful despite reports to the contrary. The site is also home to Qari Yousef Ahmadi and Suhail Shaheen, two more of the militant group’s spokesmen.

Questions have been raised about Twitter’s motives after it permanently banned former President Donald Trump from the website following remarks in the aftermath of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. Facebook has since done the same.

In contradiction to Twitter’s claim of a “mostly peaceful” war, CNN reported on the execution of 22 Afghan special forces

In an 18 August 2021 CNN report, 22 Afghan special forces can be seen after they ran out of ammunition. Shortly thereafter, they were executed.

Over clear but unsteady video, the words ring out: “Surrender, commandos, surrender.” Several men emerge from a building; they are clearly unarmed.

Gunfire erupts. At least a dozen men are seen shot to death amid cries of “Allahu Akhbar” — God is Great.

The victims were members of an Afghan Special Forces unit: their executioners, the Taliban. The summary killings took place on June 16 in the town of Dawlat Abad in Faryab province, close to Afghanistan’s border with Turkmenistan.

CNN has obtained and verified several videos of the incident and has spoken with witnesses.

Videos show the commandos’ bodies strewn across an outdoor market. After a fierce battle to hold the town, the commandos had run out of ammunition and were surrounded by the Taliban fighters, witnesses said.

In one video, about 45 seconds long, a bystander can be heard saying in Pashto, the local language: “Don’t shoot them, don’t shoot them, I beg you don’t shoot them.” The bystander then asks: “How are you Pashtun killing Afghans?” The Pashtuns are the main ethnic group in Afghanistan.

At the end of the video, another voice off-camera says: “Take everything off them.”

In another video, a man can be heard saying: “Open his body armor.” One fighter can be seen taking equipment off the body of one of the commandos.

The killing of the soldiers stands in stark contrast to the Taliban’s efforts to show it is accepting the surrender of soldiers and, in some instances, paying them to go home as it makes territorial gains across Afghanistan.

The Taliban posted a video three days after the fighting in Dawlat Abad, showing the seizure of military trucks and weapons. The video claimed that “the Washington guards, a CIA specially trained special commando who had been pursuing the Taliban in Dawlat Abad, Faryab, were captured alive by the Taliban, disarmed and handcuffed.”

YouTube suspended Rand Paul for saying the SAME THING about masks as former Biden COVID-19 adviser

Twitchy points out the hypocrisy of YouTube in their suspension of Senator Paul (but their lack of action against Michael Osterholm).

YouTube has suspended Sen. Rand Paul for saying in a video that cloth masks are not effective at preventing COVID-19:

If that non-controversial statement sounds familiar, it should, because it’s the exact same thing former Biden COVID-19 adviser Dr. Michael Osterholm said on CNN a few days ago:

The word “YouTube” must sound out some language’s word for “hypocrisy”

It seems that the word “YouTube” must sound out some language’s word for “hypocrisy.” Then again, there are too many instances of hypocrisy on all of the liberal social media platforms to assign this attribute to just one platform.
