Thought for the day

"There is no worse mistake in public leadership than to hold out false hopes soon to be swept away. The British people can face peril or misfortune with fortitude and buoyancy, but they bitterly resent being deceived or finding that those responsible for their affairs are themselves dwelling in a fool's paradise." -- Winston Churchill

Former FBI Agent Reveals Massive Election Interference in Bombshell Court Testimony MikeRivero Thu, 12/08/2022 - 13:38

A Big Tech lawsuit has uncovered one of the most disturbing revelations yet about social media companies’ collusion with law enforcement agencies to police speech on the Internet. A former FBI agent, Elvis Chan, revealed during the court hearings that the bureau held weekly meetings with major social media companies prior to the 2020 and 2022 elections.

On Wednesday, the court transcript of former FBI agent Elvis Chan’s testimony was released and corroborated earlier reports.

We brought you the news on Tuesday that Jim Baker had been fired from Twitter because he was looking at the Twitter files allegedly without the knowledge of the management.

Musk said the firing was because of a possible role in the “suppression” of information.

Musk termed Baker’s explanation for his actions “unconvincing.”

Now that the proof is in the pudding regarding how often Twitter, the most influential social media platform, was essentially used as an arm of a political party to silence opposing voices, the proverbial beans are being spilled by the hour.

It turns out that the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has been colluding with Maricopa County officials to censor information they disagree with surrounding elections in Maricopa County.

Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer actually met with the CISA Cybersecurity Advisory Committee to get their help on fighting information that was coming out about the 2020 election in Maricopa County. Richer even suggested that the government agency should collude with media outlets like FOX and CNN with “bootcamps.”

This weekend, we learned former FBI General Counsel James Baker had been “vetting” the Twitter File documents. In other words, removing the ones that might incriminate him or the feds.

“It was pretty obvious that the Twitter files that had just been released were missing a crucial element — and that was the FBI,” stated Miranda Devine.

The Twitter Files and the FBI MikeRivero Thu, 12/08/2022 - 10:40

To give a short explainer, the talented Matt Taibbi posted internal Twitter documents around the 2020 presidential election which demonstrated how political operations – such as the Biden presidential campaign and the DNC – petitioned the company to remove “offending” tweets. Twitter complied. The Trump White House would make similar requests, but as Taibbi observe, “this system wasn’t balanced.” Instead, it was based on contacts. And as you can imagine, Twitter’s staff, especially at the highest levels, was far left and supported the Democrats.

Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg on Tuesday dared US prosecutors to come after him like they have Julian Assange by revealing in a BBC News interview that the WikiLeaks publisher sent him a backup of leaked materials from former military analyst Chelsea Manning.

Republican Senator Ted Cruz has weighed in on the revelations in Elon Musk’s ‘Twitter Files’ publication, urging that it is “evidence of corruption that goes to the highest level of government.”

Among the significant changes Elon Musk is implementing at Twitter, not the least of which being exposing an underbelly of direction-taking from liberal leaders, he is also asking employees to work "hardcore" for what is being called Twitter 2.0.

A woman who became one of President Joe Biden’s most vocal critics after her Marine son died during the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan last year has seen her voice restored on Twitter.

Shana Chappell posted to Twitter on Tuesday — returning to the social media platform after a permanent ban imposed under the network’s previous ownership.
