Ray Epps Admits He ‘Orchestrated’ Jan. 6 ‘Insurrection’

Sun, 01/01/2023 - 15:00

He’s a fed. It was a set-up.

People are still in jail over Jan 6th, and Ray Epps who admitted to orchestrating it walks free because he's under Democrat protection.

Now Ray Epps Admits He ‘Orchestrated’ Jan. 6 ‘Insurrection’

By: Robert Spencer, December 31, 2022:

Ray Epps is the fellow who was caught on video multiple times telling pro-Trump protesters that they were going to have to storm the Capitol. Yet despite this clear evidence that he was a singular ringleader and instigator of what Democrats insist was an “insurrection” that threatened the very survival of our free republic, Epps has never been charged with insurrection or anything else, or even been arrested. Meanwhile, people who never told anyone to storm the Capitol have languished in prison without trial for nearly two years now, in shocking conditions. All this has given rise to the widespread and lingering suspicion that Ray Epps is a fed, a suspicion that Epps himself has just reinforced by telling his nephew that he “orchestrated” the events of that fateful day. Of course he did.

A transcript of a deposition of Epps with the House Jan. 6 Committee, dated Jan. 21, 2022 but just released on Thursday, reveals that at 2:12 p.m. on Jan. 6, 2021, Ray Epps sent a text to his 28-year-old nephew, Dalin Epps: “I was in the front with a few others. I also orchestrated it.” In the deposition, Ray Epps does his best to back away from this thunderous assertion. He is asked: “Help us understand this text. What did you mean by ‘orchestrate’? What did you orchestrate?” Epps responds first by deflecting to his relationship with his nephew, which no one in the room had asked him anything about: “I just meant that I got — you have to understand our relationship, uncle-nephew. We hunt together. We fun with each other. We do that kind of stuff.” After that, he got to the point: “What I meant by ‘orchestrate,’ I helped get people there.”

Now, Ray Epps is on video saying on Jan. 5, 2021, saying, “I’m gonna put it out there. I’m probably gonna go to jail for it, okay?” He didn’t. “Tomorrow, we need to go into the Capitol. Into the Capitol.” The people around him in the video aren’t buying it and start chanting, “Fed! Fed! Fed!” At another point, Epps says, “Tomorrow — I don’t even like to say it ‘cause I’ll be arrested…” (he wasn’t). Someone in the crowd responds, “So let’s not say it.” “We need to go —” Epps continues, and looking at the man who told him not to say it, insists, “I’ll say it. We need to go in to the Capitol.” Once again his exhortation is received with derision.

Ray Epps denied working for the FBI during Capitol Riot. Protesters at the scene didn't buy it. I don't buy it.

— Tony Keiser (@keiserrott) December 30, 2022

In yet another instance, Epps is caught on video saying, “We are going to the Capitol, where our problems are.” Pointing, he helpfully tells protesters, “It’s that direction. Please spread the word.” He tells some protesters, “When we go in, leave this here,” but it’s unclear to what he is referring. Epps is also in video whispering something to those who pushed down the barriers between the protesters and the Capitol just before they began breaking down the barriers; then he is seen running with them toward the Capitol.

Viewing all this, and knowing that Epps has never even been arrested, it’s extremely hard to escape the suspicion that he was an agent provocateur trying to ensure that protesters breached the Capitol so as to establish the Left’s bogus and hole-ridden “insurrection” narrative. If this were not true, Epps would be languishing in prison in Washington today along with the others who did far less than he did.

This suspicion is only reinforced by Epps’ clumsy efforts to explain away what he meant when he told his nephew that he had “orchestrated” the whole thing. He told the Committee, “At that point, I didn’t know that they were breaking into the Capitol. I didn’t [know that] windows had been broken. I didn’t know anybody was in the Capitol. I answered him, that means I was on — at 2:12, I was on my way back to the hotel room.” If Epps texted that to his nephew when he was on his way back to his hotel room, then he was clearly lying to the Committee, for he was captured on video before then standing right there as the protesters knocked down the fence that was the only barrier between them and the Capitol.

Epps added under questioning, “‘Orchestrating’ is the wrong word. Okay. I don’t know what the right word is, but ‘orchestrating’ — my wife has told me over and over, You shouldn’t say things that you don’t — you know, I shouldn’t have used that word. I helped get people there.”

He sure did. The biggest indictment of the Jan. 6 Committee is that even after this testimony, Epps wasn’t indicted. He remains free while many others who did far less languish behind bars. So who was Ray Epps working for? The American people need the answer.

Secretary of State Blinken: We Had to Surrender to the Taliban for Ukraine

Thu, 12/29/2022 - 19:39

An embarrassment of monumental failures made to happen, that is the legacy of the Biden regime.

As one commenter pointed out – ‘what’s not being talked about is: Why was the evacuation through the Kabul airport rather than the Bagram base which could have provided a secure perimeter?’

Blinken: We Had to Surrender to the Taliban for Ukraine

By: Daniel Greenfield, December 29, 2022:

The media can’t seem to get around to asking Secretary of State Blinken why the administration, including USAID, are in violation of federal law by refusing to cooperate with SIGAR, the Afghanistan war watchdog.

And what they’re hiding.

Or where all the packs of hundred dollar bills showing up in Kabul Airport is coming from. But you know the media is no more likely to ask Blinken a hard-hitting question than they are to report on a Republican October surprise as anything but Russian disinformation.

But this was another opportunity for Blinken to spout meaningless buzzwords and self-serving drivel.

“As we look ahead to 2023, we will continue to use all of our diplomatic tools to drive these priorities, and many others – including maintaining our commitment to the people of Afghanistan, particularly those who supported the U.S. mission there over 20 years, as well as to stand up for the rights of women and girls,” Secretary of State Blinken told reporters.

Throwing hundreds of millions at the Taliban has only convinced the Jihadis that they can beat women with impunity. What’s next in that incredible commitment to the people of Afghanistan, last seen hanging off planes being evacced from Kabul airport?

“The decision that we just heard come from the Taliban on denying opportunities for women to go to universities, girls to go to school – I think what you’ve already heard is a course of condemnation from around the world, and not only from us but from countries – virtually every continent, including Muslim countries, which, I think is, in and of itself, important and powerful.  What they’ve done is to try to sentence Afghan women and girls to a dark future without opportunity.  And the bottom line is that no country is going to be able to succeed, much less thrive, if it denies half its population the opportunity to contribute. And to be clear – and we are engaged with other countries on this right now – there are going to be costs if this is not reversed, if this is not changed,” Blinken rambled.

Sure. A 20% pay cut in cash sent to the Taliban?

The condemnations are awesome though. We know how much the Taliban care about international condemnations. They’ll be as effective as the international condemnations of Iran, Russia, North Korea and Venezuela.

“I’ll also say this: we ended America’s longest war.  For the first time in 20 years, Americans will not be coming home from Afghanistan in a body bag or grievously injured,” Blinken argued.

It’s unclear if he was counting the Americans he left behind in Afghanistan. Or the 13 dead in the Kabul bombing after his boss turned over the city to the Taliban.

Finally, Blinken argued that, “when it comes to Russia’s war against Ukraine, if we were still in Afghanistan, it would have, I think, made much more complicated the support that we’ve been able to give and that others have been able to give Ukraine to resist and push back against the Russian aggression.”

Had Biden not humiliated America with a disastrous retreat, Putin might not have gone into Ukraine. And the extent of Biden’s support for Ukraine is providing supplies. Is Blinken seriously claiming that we couldn’t have occasionally bombed the Taliban and sent a whole bunch of weapons to Ukraine?

We had to surrender to the Taliban for Ukraine is a hell of an argument.

Blinken then claimed that,”it doesn’t take away from our enduring commitment to stand up for the rights of women and girls, and more broadly for the rights of people in Afghanistan.”

Also the cops in Uvalde doing nothing took nothing away from their commitment to the kids and teachers being shot in the classrooms.

DEFEATED: January 6 Panel WITHDRAWS Trump Subpoena

Lawyer Harmeet Dhillon Claims Victory As January 6 Panel Drops Trump Subpoena

By Daniel Chaitin • Dec 28, 2022 •

Conservative attorney Harmeet Dhillon is celebrating the House January 6 Committee withdrawing its subpoena against former President Donald Trump.

The victory for The Dhillon Law Group, which Trump hired after being subpoenaed in October for testimony and documents, comes as Dhillon is challenging Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel to lead the Republican National Committee.

“After my firm filed suit on separation of powers grounds to block January 6 House Select Committee’s illegitimate subpoena to President Trump over his activities while president — the committee waved the white flag & withdrew subpoena,” Dhillon said in a tweet Wednesday.

“We were confident of victory,” she added, “in court, given precedent & refusal of prior presidents to testify in Congress. J6 committee wasted millions for a purely political witch-hunt, total abuse of process & power serving no legitimate legislative purpose.”

Dhillon shared a screenshot of a letter signed by January 6 Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-MS) that announced the withdrawal and offered a brief explanation.

“As you may know, the Select Committee has concluded its hearings, released its final report and will very soon reach its end. In light of the imminent end of our investigation, the Select Committee can no longer pursue the specific information covered by the subpoena,” the letter said.

In 2019, 40 Democrats Called Ukraine’s Nazi Azov Battalion a Terrorist Org. Now They Send It Billions

Thu, 12/29/2022 - 13:50

One thing is certain: the full extent of the ties between Ukraine and the posturing, self-righteous, desperately corrupt, hypocritical and self-serving U.S. Democrat establishment is not publicly known, and may never be known. But what we do know should have brought that entire establishment crashing down years ago. First, there was Hunter Biden’s $50,000-a-month job with the Ukrainian gas company Burisma despite his having no experience whatsoever in the industry. This was an obvious instance of influence-peddling despite all the ongoing attempts to explain it away. Then there are the allegations that the U.S. government sent taxpayer money to Ukraine, which then invested in the discredited cryptocurrency firm FTX, which then donated millions to Democrats. The heated denials of any wrongdoing in the latter case recall the denials of the authenticity of Hunter’s laptop. And there is much more, including the fact that yesterday’s Ukrainian Nazi terrorists are now U.S. taxpayer-funded heroes of freedom.

The facts have gotten little attention, but the independent journalism site Kanekoa News reported as long ago as last June that “on October 16, 2019, the top Democrat on the House Homeland Security Committee’s counterterrorism subpanel, Rep. Max Rose (NY), led a letter signed by forty Democrats asking the State Department why they had not placed Ukraine’s Azov Battalion on the U.S. list of ‘foreign terrorist organizations’ (FTOs).” The irony couldn’t be richer, for now the New York Times, that reliable organ of far-Left opinion, refers to “Ukraine’s celebrated Azov Battalion,” and claims that “the group’s defense of the Azovstal steel plant in Mariupol — the southern port city decimated by Russian forces in the first months of the war — has become a powerful symbol of the suffering inflicted by Russia and the resistance mounted by Ukraine.”

Every last Democrat who condemned the Azov Battalion likely reads and respects the Times, and every last one of them also would likely prefer us all to forget that they once likened the Azov Battalion to the Islamic State (ISIS) and noted that it “openly welcomes neo-Nazis into its ranks.” The Democrats’ 2019 letter added that “the 115th Congress of the United States stated in its 2018 omnibus spending bill that ‘none of the funds made available by this act may be used to provide arms, training or other assistance to the Azov Battalion.’” But that was when Volodymyr Zelensky was widely regarded as some kind of ally or tool of the Left’s Emanuel Goldstein of the day, Donald Trump; after all, the first Stalinist show trial impeaching the America-First president took place over a phone call to Zelensky. So it was in the Democrats’ interest to play up the Nazi element in Ukraine, just as it is in their interests now to pretend that element doesn’t exist.

The Democrats’ letter even declared “Azov has been recruiting, radicalizing, and training American citizens for years according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.” Yet now it seems as if there is no limit to the taxpayer billions that must be funneled to these gallant Ukrainian defenders of freedom. Is anyone exercising any kind of oversight at all? Is Azov still “recruiting, radicalizing, and training American citizens”? Is our taxpayer money now being used to fund such activities?

Among the stalwart Democrat solons and defenders of the people signing the letter were Bennie Thompson of Mississippi, Eliot Engel and Gregory Meeks of New York, Jamie Raskin of Maryland, Sheila Jackson Lee and Al Green of Texas, Ro Khanna of California, and Rep. Al Green. None of them have any curiosity about any of this at all? Now they’re all just certain that Ukraine is 100% on the side of the angels and that there are no Nazis, zero, zip, nada, who are benefiting from American largesse to Zelensky and company? Back in 2018, Ro Khanna, in high moral dudgeon, declared: “White supremacy and neo-Nazism are unacceptable and have no place in our world. I am very pleased that the recently passed omnibus prevents the U.S. from providing arms and training assistance to the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion fighting in Ukraine.” How about now? Kanekoa News reports that on March 10, 2022, Khanna “deleted a tweet saying, ‘the U.S. has been complicit in the rehabilitation and spread of neo-Nazis in Ukraine. Enough is enough! Our government must stand up to the Azov Battalion and other fascist groups.’”

So apparently our government no longer must stand up to the Azov Battalion and other fascist groups. Instead, you and I have to pay for them. Is all this so that Democrats can line their pockets via money-laundering schemes akin to the alleged FTX arrangement? We may never know, since the officials who are supposed to be looking out for our interests are all corrupted themselves. The scammers and money launderers, whatever specifically they are doing or not doing, have a free hand.

Arizona Gov.-elect Katie Hobbs demands legal sanctions against Kari Lake for election lawsuit

Maricopa County official claims Republican is using election lawsuit to fundraise off meritless lawsuit challenging election.

By Greg Piper, Just The News, December 26, 2022:

The incoming Democratic governor of Arizona filed legal papers in Maricopa County’s Superior Court of Arizona seeking sanctions against her Republican rival Kari Lake and Lake’s lawyers for making false claims about a stolen election in the state’s most populous county in her lawsuit alleging election fraud.

“She has not simply failed to publicly acknowledge the election results,” Katie Hobbs wrote in the filing, according to the Washington Examiner. Lake has “filed a groundless, seventy-page election contest lawsuit against the governor-elect, the secretary of state, and Maricopa County and several of its elected officials and employees,” what Hobbs termed a “frivolous pursuit.”

Maricopa County Deputy Attorney Thomas Liddy said Lake was fundraising off her false claims about election fraud and using the courts to “harass political opponents and sow completely unfounded doubts about the integrity of elections,” the Examiner reported.

U.S. Government Redacted Damning Info On “Disinformation Board”

Tue, 12/27/2022 - 18:00

‘By the people, for the people’ is over. This is a government at war against its own people.

U.S. Government Redacted Damning Info On “Disinformation Board”

Presidential Wire, December 2022:

( Two Republican senators are alleging that the Biden administration redacted key information about the Department of Homeland Security’s “Disinformation Board,” according to Newsmax. In June, Sens. Chuck Grassley and Josh Hawley reportedly requested the DHS to supply them with information on the board and its relationships with social media platforms.

But in a letter sent by the senators to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, they said that the redactions are “applied to pre-decisional and deliberative process material.” The letter continued to state that Congress is an equal branch of government.

The senators said that they will renew their requests to the department and its attempts to counter disinformation, suggesting that it is still impossible to know the extent of their efforts.

The letter came months after the agency dissolved the “Disinformation Governance Board” when it faced public backlash. In response to the dissolution, the Homeland Security Advisory Council eventually stated that the DHS will continue to address threats that “undermine the security of our country consistent with the law while upholding” privacy…and “promoting transparency.”

The board was to be headed by executive director Nina Jankowicz, whose tweets and social media posts were found to be politically biased, according to American Pigeon.

Jankowicz called the Hunter Biden laptop story Russian disinformation, although it has now been corroborated by mainstream outlets. In another tweet, she called the “free speech vs censorship framing a false dichotomy” and proceeded to criticize former President Trump for not disavowing “disinformation and conspiracy theories.”

She also said that free speech was only for those who are “white and male.”

This is an actual tweet from Jankowicz, the executive director of the administration's new "Disinformation Governance Board" to combat "misinformation."

In case there was any doubt about the partisan nature of the board, we now know what she actually thinks of "free speech."

— American Pigeon (@AmericanPigeon) April 29, 2022

Conservatives claimed that the disinformation board resembled the fictional Orwellian “Ministry of Truth” because the board served to erase the truth, falsify history, and create Party hegemony,” which is “the strategy of the Democratic Party and their global accomplices,” according to American Pigeon.

VIDEO: January 6 Was A ‘Fed-Surrection’

Tue, 12/27/2022 - 17:00

When it comes to the January 6th fed-surrection, and it was a fed-surrection, there are two smoking guns. One is the case of Ray Epps… the other, the pipe bomber.

From Ray Epps – to opening the magnetic doors from the inside – to the dozens of fed operatives in the crowd – to Ginger Gun – to firing flash bombs and gas canisters on unsuspecting grandmas and seniors – to the mass arrests of hundreds of innocent Trump supporters who were waved into the US Capitol. (TPG)

Revolver News’ Darren Beattie On How January 6 Was A ‘Fed-Surrection’ [VIDEO]

By Gregory Hoyt, Red Voice Media, December 20, 2022

Red Voice Media had an opportunity to speak with Darren Beattie at Turning Point USA’s America Fest in Phoenix, Arizona, where the Revolver News journalist shared insight into his reporting of the mainstream media’s seemingly collective dismissal of the perplexing narrative surrounding the at-large D.C. pipe bomb suspect connected to the January 6th “fed-surrection.”

“When it comes to the January 6th fed-surrection, and it was a fed-surrection, there are two smoking guns. One is the case of Ray Epps, whom I think many of your listeners already know about – perhaps, somewhat thanks to Revolver News’ coverage. And if you don’t, go to, read the whole history of J6 exclusives. There’s one particular piece – series – called ‘Meet Ray Epps’ and the second part of that has extensive video footage of it. If you talk to anyone in your family or any friends and they’re skeptical and say, ‘No, there’s no way our government would’ve been involved in January 6,’ tell them to take the Revolver News challenge, watch the Ray Epps clips that we have, and then tell them to look you in the eye and say the government wasn’t involved…Nobody can pass that challenge. So there’s the Ray Epps story on one side, on the other side there’s the pipe bomb issue.”

Beattie further explained some of the critical oddities surrounding the at-large D.C. pipe bomb suspect connected to January 6th, from looming questions as to why certain portions of surveillance video haven’t been released publicly to help identify this mysterious figure to the fact that Beattie explained why the currently available footage that has been publicly released appears to have been edited in a manner that downgraded the video quality.

Hundreds of Migrants Climb a Wall to Get to Arizona, With Help from Smugglers

Tue, 12/27/2022 - 16:00

“A proper government is only a policeman, acting as an agent of man’s self-defense, and, as such, may resort to force only against those who start the use of force. The only proper functions of a government are: the police, to protect you from criminals; the army, to protect you from foreign invaders; and the courts, to protect your property and contracts from breach or fraud by others, to settle disputes by rational rules, according to objective law…” Joh Galt’s speech Alast Shrugged.

Horrific. And little to no coverage from the mainstream media.

The proper function of a government is to protect you from foreign invaders.

The source of the government’s authority is “the consent of the governed” – we have no such government. We are under siege.

As human trafficking becomes more streamlined and profitable for the cartels, their customer service appears to be improving. So, while the deluge of illegal immigration is an unmitigated disaster for Americans, at least one can hope the humans being trafficked might suffer less.

Celeb-Funded Bail Group Closed After Helping Criminal Who Went On Crime and Shooting Spree

Bail group shuts down after being sued for helping release serial offender who shot waiter

By Yaron Steinbuch, NY Post, December 26, 2022 8:01am Updated

Chengyan Wang is suing the non-profit for its role in releasing Rashawn Gaston-Anderson despite

A California bail reform group backed by A-list celebrities has shut down after being sued for releasing a serial criminal who less than a week later tried to murder a waiter in Las Vegas.

The Bail Project — whose supporters include Danny Glover, John Legend and Richard Branson — announced it discontinued its operations due to restructuring in early December, 8 NewsNow reported.

Its closure comes after it posted a $3,000 bond for burglary suspect Rashawn Gaston-Anderson in December 2021.

Six days later, Gaston-Anderson shot Chengyan Wang 11 times in Chinatown, 8 NewsNow reported.

In a plea deal, the 24-year-old was convicted of attempted robbery and mayhem, both with deadly weapon enhancements, according to News 3 Las Vegas.

Gaston-Anderson was sentenced in December to seven to 18 years behind bars for the shooting.
Wounded waiter Chengyan Wang

The waiter, who was struck by seven rounds in the attack at Shanghai Taste, is suing the non-profit for its role in releasing Gaston-Anderson despite his criminal past.

Wang — who also is suing Gaston-Anderson and Shanghai Plaza owner US Hui De Real Estate Investment Corp. – is seeking over $15,000 in damages from each defendant, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.

“He’s got scars all over his body. He can’t move his shoulder over a certain height. I don’t know how (the bullets) missed a vital artery,” the victim’s lawyer, Kory Kaplan, told the newspaper.

The lawsuit accuses The Bail Project of failing to take into account Gaston-Anderson’s potential danger to the community given his pending and past cases.

In 2018, he pleaded guilty to attempted grand larceny in Las Vegas and was sentenced to 18 months of probation.

The following year, he was convicted of felony burglary in New York and in 2021 he was convicted of auto theft in Illinois, Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson told the news outlet.

In November 2021, he also was arrested for pandering and carrying a concealed weapon, 8 NewsNow reported.

He was reportedly released without bail and ordered to stay out of trouble.

However, he was arrested again the following day on burglary and theft charges. The repeat offender was then sprung from jail after the non-profit posted his $3,000 bond.

“Normally when bail is posted, a cash bail, it is a family member or friend who is familiar with the accused,” Wolfson told the Review-Journal.

“One can say, in a sense, they are vouching for the person. They are risking their own money. A family member comes forward, a brother, a friend, and if they put up $3,000 and this person doesn’t show up or re-offends, they lose their own money,” he said.

“In this case, we have an out-of-state national organization with little or no ties to our community who puts up the cash bail,” the prosecutor added.

2022: Biden’s Biggest Lies

Mon, 12/26/2022 - 16:00

Check out these whoppers. 81 million votes!

7 Big Biden Lies of 2022

BY: Spencer Brown, Townhall, December 24, 2022:\

As 2022 and President Biden’s first full calendar year in office comes to an end, the White House has been trying to frame his year as one of significant accomplishments and lots of “building back better.” But Americans — dealing with negative wage growth of more than three percent, struggling to make ends meet while living paycheck-to-paycheck, staring down a crime crisis in their neighborhoods, and watching fentanyl ravage their communities — know the opposite to be true.

While all administrations seek to spin current events to favor their agenda and narrative, Biden’s has taken the effort into full-blown falsehood territory, often requiring Americans to ignore the reality they see in order to believe what the president and his West Wing are claiming.

In no particular order, here are seven of President Biden’s biggest or most unforgivable whoppers of 2022.

1. “The economy is strong as hell”

Despite President Biden’s approval on the economy being 20 points underwater at the time he claimed there’s “nothing to see here” when it comes to the U.S. economy, this one is as literally unbelievable as one can get.

As Guy wrote at the time, the “ice cream cone flourish really offers extra Marie Antoinette vibes, making the optics even worse.” On Biden’s watch, gas prices surged to all-time highs, inflation surged to 40-year highs, the number of Americans living paycheck-to-paycheck surged, and the country entered a technical recession. If that’s “strong as hell,” we’d hate to see an economic situation Biden thinks is “bad.”

2. I “signed a law” to cancel student loan debt that passed “by a vote or two”

Where to begin? First, the president’s announcement about student loan debt was one of the most transparent attempts to mobilize young Democrat voters ahead of a midterm cycle in years. How do you do fellow kids? How about I take your student debt burden and pass it on to taxpayers who chose not to take on six-figure debts in order to get useless degrees?” 

BIDEN: I “signed a law” to cancel student loan debt and “got it passed by a vote or two.”

— (@townhallcom) October 24, 2022

Second, despite Biden’s claim, his student loan bailout was an executive order — not a bill passed by Americans’ elected representatives. Biden’s complicated lie even included a phony vote margin which raises even more questions about Biden’s ability to know what’s going on around him.

Lastly, Biden’s student debt plan that sought to get young people out to the polls in the midterms to vote for Democrats — with a simple bribe of essentially “free” money that just meant all Americans would share the burden of student debt — predictably did not pan out. Those who turned out to vote because Biden promised to bail them out are now the suckers looking at their unchanged debt balances.

3. “Jim Crow 2.0”

As usual, President Biden refuses to back down from lies even when clear evidence contradicts his claims, typified by his false smears of Georgia’s election integrity law. Despite Biden’s frequent attempts to say the legislation was little more than an attempt at racist disenfranchisement, it’s just never been true.

Joe is back to calling election integrity efforts "Jim Crow 2.0"

— (@townhallcom) January 11, 2022

“How many times do we have to tell you this old man?!” The midterm cycle in Georgia — both the primaries, general election, and runoff — saw turnout beating cycle and single-day participation numbers seen in 2018 and 2020. Voters were not disenfranchised by Georgia’s law. Instead, more Georgians voted in the 2022 midterms than in the previous midterm cycle. Could it be that voters are more energized to participate when they know their vote will count and not be potentially canceled out by fraudulent ballots? Still, Biden won’t admit he was wrong and kept up his lies through 2022 — the same ones that saw him successfully urge Major League Baseball to yank the All-Star Game from Atlanta previously — that Georgia was a bastion of racist voter suppression.

4. “No national plan to get Americans vaccinated”

In yet another literally unbelievable lie from President Biden, he claimed this year that when he was sworn into office, “there was no national plan to get Americans vaccinated and jump-start our economy.” *Sigh.* Biden, certainly, cannot believe this — or else his mind is in worse shape than we thought.

Both Biden and VP Harris received vaccines before they were sworn into office. They got their vaccines because of Operation Warp Speed that the Trump administration launched to create a war effort-level mobilization of federal public and private resources to manufacture and distribute vaccines.

When Vice President @KamalaHarris and I took office, there was no national plan to get Americans vaccinated and jump-start our economy.

The American Rescue Plan helped us get 500 million shots in arms and set off the greatest single year of job growth in our history.

— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) March 11, 2022

What’s more, if Biden thinks his plan to “jump-start” the economy is some sort of brilliant plan, he’s well and truly lost it. The economy has not been jump-started. The economy is, not to beleaguer the point, not doing well and even entered a technical recession this year even as the Federal Reserve has had to increase interest rates at the most aggressive pace in years to the highest level since 2008.

5. “You couldn’t buy a cannon”

In another of Biden’s favorite lies, he continued to attack the Second Amendment and law-abiding firearm owners this year. In addition to claiming no constitutional right is “absolute,” Biden often quips that “you couldn’t buy a cannon when this [Second] Amendment was passed.” In addition to being a silly argument, it’s false.

Biden’s claim about cannon ownership received “Four Pinocchios” from The Washington Post last June, but Biden continues to repeat the lie year after year. He knows better, but just wants to scare Americans and demonize those who lawfully own firearms to protect themselves, their property, and their families amid rising crime that continues to go unpunished thanks to DAs in Biden’s party.

6. The border is “secure”

Yet another unbelievable lie from Biden and others in his administration is that the U.S.-Mexico border is “closed,” “secure,” or “under control.” If you have eyes or ears and aren’t in a coma, you know this simply isn’t true.

Townhall has covered Biden’s open-border crisis extensively, both from DC and along the border itself:

The Biden administration insists the border is secure. Townhall has seen firsthand it's not.

If Biden will make a claim as brazen as this, nearly every other claim he makes about his work and the condition of the country is called into question.

CATASTROPHIC: Twitter COVID FILES: US Govt Censored Content, Suspended Users, Targeted “Anti-Vaxxers”, Promoted Fear

Mon, 12/26/2022 - 15:54

We have no constitution. Like us, the Constitution has been suspended.

All of us who were permanently suspended from Twitter for Covid or election truths were removed by order of the US government. America has been torn asunder.  Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

I’ve posted the whole thread. Read it all.

Not to beat a dead horse (one of Stanford University’s banned phrases) but Geller Report was reporting on Covid truths and the vaccine dangers since the very first and was blacklisted everywhere. Scroll here.

Jim Baker asked Yoel Roth why Donald Trump telling people not to be afraid of COVID wasn’t a Twitter policy violation..

— Benny Johnson (@bennyjohnson) December 26, 2022

2. So far the Twitter Files have focused on evidence of Twitter’s secret blacklists; how the company functioned as a kind of subsidiary of the FBI; and how execs rewrote the platform’s rules to accommodate their own political desires.

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

3. What we have yet to cover is Covid. This reporting, for The Free Press, @thefp, is one piece of that important story.

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

4. The United States government pressured Twitter and other social media platforms to elevate certain content and suppress other content about Covid-19.

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

5. Internal files at Twitter that I viewed while on assignment for @thefp showed that both the Trump and Biden administrations directly pressed Twitter executives to moderate the platform’s pandemic content according to their wishes.

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

6. At the onset of the pandemic, according to meeting notes, the Trump admin was especially concerned about panic buying. They came looking for “help from the tech companies to combat misinformation” about “runs on grocery stores.” But . . . there were runs on grocery stores.

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

7. It wasn’t just Twitter. The meetings with the Trump White House were also attended by Google, Facebook, Microsoft and others.

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

8. When the Biden admin took over, one of their first meeting requests with Twitter executives was on Covid. The focus was on “anti-vaxxer accounts.” Especially Alex Berenson:

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

9. In the summer of 2021, president Biden said social media companies were “killing people” for allowing vaccine misinformation. Berenson was suspended hours after Biden’s comments, and kicked off the platform the following month.

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

10. Berenson sued (and then settled with) Twitter. In the legal process Twitter was compelled to release certain internal communications, which showed direct White House pressure on the company to take action on Berenson.


— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

11. A December 2022 summary of meetings with the White House by Lauren Culbertson, Twitter’s Head of U.S. Public Policy, adds new evidence of the White House’s pressure campaign, and cements that it repeatedly attempted to directly influence the platform.

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

12. Culbertson wrote that the Biden team was “very angry” that Twitter had not been more aggressive in deplatforming multiple accounts. They wanted Twitter to do more.

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

13. Twitter executives did not fully capitulate to the Biden team’s wishes. An extensive review of internal communications at the company revealed employees often debating moderation cases in great detail, and with more care than was shown by the government toward free speech.

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

14. But Twitter did suppress views—many from doctors and scientific experts—that conflicted with the official positions of the White House. As a result, legitimate findings and questions that would have expanded the public debate went missing.

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

15. There were three serious problems with Twitter’s process:

First, much of the content moderation was conducted by bots, trained on machine learning and AI – impressive in their engineering, yet still too crude for such nuanced work.

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

16. Second, contractors, in places like the Philippines, also moderated content. They were given decision trees to aid in the process, but tasking non experts to adjudicate tweets on complex topics like myocarditis and mask efficacy data was destined for a significant error rate

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

17 Third, most importantly, the buck stopped with higher level employees at Twitter who chose the inputs for the bots and decision trees, and subjectively decided escalated cases and suspensions. As it is with all people and institutions, there was individual and collective bias

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

18. With Covid, this bias bent heavily toward establishment dogmas.

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

19. Inevitably, dissident yet legitimate content was labeled as misinformation, and the accounts of doctors and others were suspended both for tweeting opinions and demonstrably true information.

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

20. Exhibit A: Dr. Martin Kulldorff, an epidemiologist at Harvard Medical School, tweeted views at odds with US public health authorities and the American left, the political affiliation of nearly the entire staff at Twitter.

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

21. Internal emails show an “intent to action” by a moderator, saying Kulldorff’s tweet violated the company’s Covid-19 misinformation policy and claimed he shared “false information.”

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

22. But Kulldorff’s statement was an expert’s opinion—one which also happened to be in line with vaccine policies in numerous other countries. Yet it was deemed “false information” by Twitter moderators merely because it differed from CDC guidelines.

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

23. After Twitter took action, Kulldorff’s tweet was slapped with a “Misleading” label and all replies and likes were shut off, throttling the tweet’s ability to be seen and shared by many people, the ostensible core function of the platform:

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

24. In my review of internal files, I found countless instances of tweets labeled as “misleading” or taken down entirely, sometimes triggering account suspensions, simply because they veered from CDC guidance or differed from establishment views.

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

25. A tweet by @KelleyKga, a self-proclaimed public health fact checker, with 18K followers, was flagged as “Misleading,” and replies and likes disabled, even though it displayed the CDC’s *own data.*

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

26. Internal records showed that a bot had flagged the tweet, and that it received many “tattles” (what the system amusingly called reports from users). That triggered a manual review by a human who– despite the tweet showing actual CDC data–nevertheless labeled it “Misleading”

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

27. Tellingly, the tweet by @KelleyKga that was labeled “Misleading” was a reply to a tweet that contained actual misinformation.

Covid has never been the leading cause of death from disease in children. Yet that tweet remains on the platform, and without a “misleading” label.

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

28. Whether by humans or algorithms, content that was contrarian but true was still subject to getting flagged or suppressed

This tweet was labeled “Misleading,” even though the owner of this account, @_euzebiusz_, a physician, was referring to the results of a published study

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

29. Andrew Bostom, a Rhode Island physician, was permanently suspended from Twitter after receiving multiple strikes for misinformation. One of his strikes was for a tweet referring to the results from a peer reviewed study on mRNA vaccines.

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

30. A review of Twitter log files revealed that an internal audit, conducted after Bostom’s attorney contacted Twitter, found that only 1 of Bostom’s 5 violations were valid.

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

31. The one Bostom tweet found to still be in violation cited data that was legitimate but inconvenient to the public health establishment’s narrative about the risks of flu versus Covid in children.

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

32. That this tweet was not only flagged by a bot, but its violation manually affirmed by a staff member is telling of both the algorithmic and human bias at play. Bostom’s account was suspended for months and was finally restored on Christmas Day.

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

33. Another example of human bias run amok was the reaction to this tweet by Trump. Many Trump tweets led to extensive internal debates, and this one was no different.

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

34. In a surreal exchange, Jim Baker, at the time Twitter’s Deputy General Counsel, asks why telling people to not be afraid wasn’t a violation of Twitter’s Covid-19 misinformation policy.

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

35. Yoel Roth, Twitter’s former head of Trust & Safety, had to explain that optimism wasn’t misinformation.

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

36. Remember @KelleyKga with the CDC data tweet? Twitter’s response to her is clarifying: “we will prioritize review and labeling of content that could lead to increased exposure or transmission.”

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

37. Twitter made a decision, via the political leanings of senior staff, and govt pressure, that the public health authorities’ approach to the pandemic – prioritizing mitigation over other concerns – was “The Science” . . .

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

38. Information that challenged that view, such as showing harms of vaccines, or that could be perceived as downplaying the risks of Covid, especially to children, was subject to moderation, and even suppression. No matter whether such views were correct or adopted abroad.

— David Zweig (@davidzweig) December 26, 2022

39. What might this pandemic and its aftermath have looked like if there had been a more open debate on Twitter and other social media platforms—not to mention the mainstream press—about the origins of Covid, about lockdowns, about the true risks of Covid in kids, and much more?

Huge Spikes in Neonatal Deaths Following Vaccine Rollout, Data from Major Israeli Health Insurer Show

Mon, 12/26/2022 - 15:00

The greatest failed medical experiment in human histroy. And the criminals are still in charge demanding people receive the poison.

Two spikes in neonatal deaths to be investigated as review announced:

Official figures reveal that the rate of neonatal deaths increased to 4.6 per 1000 live births in March 2022, a 119% increase on the expected rate of deaths. This means the neonatal mortality rate breached an upper warning threshold known as the ‘control limit’ for the second time in at least four years.

Huge Spikes in Neonatal Deaths Following Vaccine Rollout, Data from Major Israeli Health Insurer Show

By: Dr Josh Guetzkow, Daily Sceptic,24 December 2022:

A fearless, selfless Israeli researcher named David Shuldman has worked tirelessly to get data released from the clutches of Government agencies. He recently obtained data via FOIA request on neonatal deaths from the Israeli health insurance fund Maccabi, which covers about 25% of Israelis.

Neonatal deaths are defined as deaths in the first four weeks of life, from the moment after birth until 28 days later. Recently, he obtained data on the quarterly number of neonatal deaths beginning the first quarter of 2019. Here is what that looks like

The quarterly number of neonatal deaths is very low, hovering between 4-8 for 2019 and 2020. Then in the second quarter of 2021, it suddenly jumps three-fold to 17, dips again in the third quarter and then jumps again to 18 in the last quarter of the year.

Since the total number of births changes little from month to month, these spikes are about triple the usual rate of neonatal deaths. (I confirmed this using data from a separate FOIA he filed with monthly data on live births from April 2019.)

In February 2021, the Israeli Ministry of Health started to officially recommend COVID-19 vaccines for pregnant women in their second and third trimesters, so the timing of the second quarter spike would coincide with women being jabbed later in their pregnancy two to four months prior.

The fourth quarter spike coincides with the booster vaccination campaign in Israel in August and especially September – a drive that aggressively targeted pregnant women. Unfortunately, the health insurer claimed not to have information on the vaccination status of pregnant women, so we are not able to differentiate by vaccination status.

However, the spike in the second quarter and again in the fourth quarter of 2021 is similar to what I found earlier this year in an analysis of data from a large Israeli hospital (also FOIA’d by David), where we saw a large jump in the rate of stillbirths, miscarriages and abortions (SBMAs) among vaccinated women in the second quarter (April-June):

Top School Principal Hides Students’ Academic Awards in Name of ‘Equity’

Mon, 12/26/2022 - 14:00

Is there anything more racist and denigrating? Minority children and their parents should be appalled at the vile bigotry of low expectation.

Top school principal hides students’ academic awards in name of ‘equity’

Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology

By Asra Q. Nomani, NY Post, December 23, 2022:

The high school had withheld notifications of National Merit awards under the guise of equity.

For years, two administrators at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology (TJ) have been withholding notifications of National Merit awards from the school’s families, most of them Asian, thus denying students the right to use those awards to boost their college-admission prospects and earn scholarships. This episode has emerged amid the school district’s new strategy of “equal outcomes for every student, without exception.” School administrators, for instance, have implemented an “equitable grading” policy that eliminates zeros, gives students a grade of 50 percent just for showing up, and assigns a cryptic code of “NTI” for assignments not turned in. It’s a race to the bottom.

An intrepid Thomas Jefferson parent, Shawna Yashar, a lawyer, uncovered the withholding of National Merit awards. Since starting as a freshman at the school in September 2019, her son, who is part Arab American, studied statistical analysis, literature reviews, and college-level science late into the night. This workload was necessary to keep him up to speed with the advanced studies at TJ, which US News & World Report ranks as America’s top school.

Last fall, along with about 1.5 million US high school juniors, the Yashar teen took the PSAT, which determines whether a student qualifies as a prestigious National Merit scholar. When it came time to submit his college applications this fall, he didn’t have a National Merit honor to report — but it wasn’t because he hadn’t earned the award. The National Merit Scholarship Corporation, a nonprofit based in Evanston, Illinois, had recognized him as a Commended Student in the top 3 percent nationwide — one of about 50,000 students earning that distinction. Principals usually celebrate National Merit scholars with special breakfasts, award ceremonies, YouTube videos, press releases and social media announcements.

But TJ School officials had decided to withhold announcement of the award. Indeed, it turns out that the principal, Ann Bonitatibus, and the director of student services, Brandon Kosatka, have been withholding this information from families and the public for years, affecting the lives of at least 1,200 students over the principal’s tenure of five years. Recognition by National Merit opens the door to millions of dollars in college scholarships and 800 Special Scholarships from


In a call with Yashar, Kosatka admitted that the decision to withhold the information from parents and inform the students in a low-key way was intentional. “We want to recognize students for who they are as individuals, not focus on their achievements,” he told her, claiming that he and the principal didn’t want to “hurt” the feelings of students who didn’t get the award. A National Merit spokeswoman said that the organization’s officials “leave this honor exclusively to the high school officials” to announce. Kosatka and Bonitatibus didn’t respond to requests for comment. In a rare admission, Fabio Zuluaga, an assistant superintendent at Fairfax County Public Schools, told me that the school system has erred not telling students, the public, and families about awards: “It was a mistake to be honest.” Zuluaga said it also isn’t enough just to hand over a certificate. “We have to do something special,” he said. “A commendation sends a very strong message to the kid, right? Your work is meaningful. If you work hard in life, there are good benefits from that.”

China Sends 39 Warplanes, 3 Ships Toward Taiwan in 24 Hours

Sun, 12/25/2022 - 19:00

With the weak Biden Administration in charge of America, and the pathetic Republican Party opposition, China’s bullying of Taiwan (and other nations) will continue. Be prepared for the possibility of China launching a military invasion of Taiwan in the months ahead.

China Sends 39 Warplanes, 3 Ships Toward Taiwan in 24 Hours

By, Dec 22, 2022

TAIPEI, Taiwan — China’s military sent 39 planes and three ships toward Taiwan in a 24-hour display of force directed at the island, Taiwan’s defense ministry said Thursday.

China’s military harassment of self-ruled Taiwan, which it claims is its own territory, has intensified in recent years, and the Communist Party’s People’s Liberation Army has sent planes or ships toward the island on a near-daily basis.

Victims of Palestinian Terrorism Sue Biden Admin for Sending Taxpayer Aid to Palestinian Authority

Sun, 12/25/2022 - 18:00

Under President Trump, the Palestinian Authority was defunded by the United States, due to it’s financial support of jihad terrorists. The Biden Administration came into office and renewed the aid. Since the renewal of the aid, Israel has seen a significant spike in (Pay to Slay) Palestinian terrorism.

The America First Legal Foundation has filed a lawsuit against the Biden Administration, claiming that renewing this aid is a violation of the Taylor Force Act. Call your member of Congress and demand that all U.S aid to the Palestinian Authority is stopped. The aid is used by the Palestinian Authority to fund terrorism against Israel. Read below.

“The plaintiffs, led in the suit by the America First Legal Foundation, a watchdog group composed of lawyers, are asking the court to halt the Biden administration’s Palestinian aid program over charges it is sustaining the pay-to-slay program in violation of a 2018 law known as the Taylor Force Act. That law—named after an American who was killed in 2016 by a Palestinian terrorist—bars all U.S. payments to the Palestinian government until it halts the terrorist payment program.”

“The lawsuit, filed in federal court on Tuesday by American victims of Palestinian terror attacks and Rep. Ronny Jackson (R., Texas), alleges the Biden administration is in violation of federal law for resuming U.S. aid to the Palestinian government, according to a copy of the lawsuit exclusively obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. The Trump administration froze these funds due to the Palestinian government’s financial support for terrorists as part of a program known as pay-to-slay.”

Victims of Terrorism Sue Biden Admin for Sending Taxpayer Aid to Palestinians

By The Washington Free Beacon, Dec 20, 2022

Victims of Palestinian terror attacks are suing the Biden administration for awarding nearly half a billion dollars in U.S. taxpayer funds to the Palestinian government, which allegedly uses these funds to pay convicted terrorists and their families.

The lawsuit, filed in federal court on Tuesday by American victims of Palestinian terror attacks and Rep. Ronny Jackson (R., Texas), alleges the Biden administration is in violation of federal law for resuming U.S. aid to the Palestinian government, according to a copy of the lawsuit exclusively obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. The Trump administration froze these funds due to the Palestinian government’s financial support for terrorists as part of a program known as pay-to-slay.


A Very, Merry Christmas To All

Sat, 12/24/2022 - 22:00

Let us put aside the great worries of the nation and remember what’s important and dear – our family, our loved ones, our inner life.

I love this time of year. Yes, I am Jewish but I respect the religious tradition and the celebration of giving, charity, forgiving, love and peace. And while joyous, it is a dangerous and frightening time of the year for Christians persecuted across the world.

So on the eve of Christmas, I am praying for the safety of Christians across the world. We must prepare for what’s ahead and pray that we change the course of history.

I stand in awe of the individuals who read Geller Report. I love the readers, the thinkers, the IT guys, the doctors, lawyers, bakers, candle stick makers, the wonks, the passion, the love, the truth, the Americans from all over the world who seek truth.

I’m wishing you blessings and joy this Christmas.

Wishing all the great defenders a very happy Christmas.

Secret Back Channel Between FTX and White House Closed the Day After FTX Filed for Bankruptcy

Sat, 12/24/2022 - 21:00

What was the big guy’s cut?

The level of criminality and depravity in this administration is only matched by its contempt for the American people and the idea of a nation of laws. No wonder they are treating this degenerate crook like a prince. Do we have any law and order left in this country?

Secret Back Channel Between FTX and White House Closed the Day After FTX Filed for Bankruptcy

By: Jim  Hoft, TPG, December 24, 2022:

The far-left Washington Post reported on March 3 that Ukraine was dealing in crypto.

The Ukrainian government has gathered more than $42 million in cryptocurrency donations since Saturday, plus digital artwork including a limited edition worth roughly $200,000, according to blockchain analytics firm Elliptic. The challenge is how the country cashes in on these assets to fund its war needs.

Amid the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the CEO of FTX, Sam Bankman Fried has come forward to help a crypto donation project. He humbly announced that FTX will be supporting the Ukrainian Ministry of Finance and other communities in collecting crypto donations for the country. The Ukrainian government has received over $60 million in crypto donations from all over the world.

FTX’s CEO, Sam Bankman Fried highlighted that the war in Ukraine has been dragging on. The country is in full need of humanitarian help and access to global financial infrastructure. He also called attention to sanctions and crypto during this kind of situation. He indicated that crypto exchanges should enforce sanctions announced by the government seriously.

Arizona Judge Makes Final Decision On Kari Lake’s Election Case

Sat, 12/24/2022 - 20:19

Despite election officials admitting that 42% of the ballots were “improper” and that the printers were altered on election day,, illegal actions by Hobbs and mass outages on Election Day, Kari Lake’s election challenge gets rejected.

The entire system is rigged, which leaves us with two scenarios. The first one being our election system is completely corrupted and we can’t have a free and fair election (which I believe) or the second, yes there’s some rigging, but the destructive, treasonous Democrats actually did win.

I don’t know which is worse. They’re both terrible horrible realities.

BREAKING: Arizona Judge Makes Final Decision On Kari Lake’s Election Case

By Clayton Keirns, December 24, 2022

The Hill is reporting that an Arizona judge has officially rejected Kari Lake’s attempt to challenge the results of her 2022 midterms “loss” to Katie Hobbs.

Here’s the scoop from The Hill:

An Arizona judge ruled against Kari Lake in her challenge of Gov.-elect Katie Hobbs’s (D) victory, dismissing the highest-profile case challenging the midterm election results.

Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson following a two-day trial found that Lake had not proven that election officials committed intentional misconduct sufficient to change the race’s outcome.

Lake, who lost to Hobbs by about 17,000 votes, had alleged election officials in Maricopa County intentionally sabotaged her victory by causing Election Day printer malfunctions and violating chain of custody procedures.

The judge made this ruling despite election officials admitting that 42% of the ballots were “improper” and that the printers were altered on election day.

TWITTER FILES: FBI, CIA, DoD, Etc. Actively Worked With EVERY Social Media Platform to Control and Censor Speech

Sat, 12/24/2022 - 18:47

A Christmas eve Twitter drop.

In this latest drop we see the FBI, CIA, DoD,State Department, Pentagon, et al dictating censorship to Twitter, Facebook, Microsoft, Verizon, Reddit, even Pinterest, and many others.

This is so vast, so deep, it’s …… the whole of the state.

The files show the FBI acting as doorman to a vast program of social media surveillance and censorship, encompassing agencies across the federal government – from the State Department to the Pentagon to the CIA.

.The government was in constant contact not just with Twitter but with virtually every major tech firm.

We live in a surveillance state.

4.The files show the FBI acting as doorman to a vast program of social media surveillance and censorship, encompassing agencies across the federal government – from the State Department to the Pentagon to the CIA.

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

5.The operation is far bigger than the reported 80 members of the Foreign Influence Task Force (FITF), which also facilitates requests from a wide array of smaller actors – from local cops to media to state governments.

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

6.Twitter had so much contact with so many agencies that executives lost track. Is today the DOD, and tomorrow the FBI? Is it the weekly call, or the monthly meeting? It was dizzying.

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

7.A chief end result was that thousands of official “reports” flowed to Twitter from all over, through the FITF and the FBI’s San Francisco field office.

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

8.On June 29th, 2020, San Francisco FBI agent Elvis Chan wrote to pair of Twitter execs asking if he could invite an “OGA” to an upcoming conference:

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

9.OGA, or “Other Government Organization,” can be a euphemism for CIA, according to multiple former intelligence officials and contractors. Chuckles one: “They think it's mysterious, but it's just conspicuous."

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

10.“Other Government Agency (the place where I worked for 27 years),” says retired CIA officer Ray McGovern.

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

11. It was an open secret at Twitter that one of its executives was ex-CIA, which is why Chan referred to that executive’s “former employer.”

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

12.The first Twitter executive abandoned any pretense to stealth and emailed that the employee “used to work for the CIA, so that is Elvis’s question.”

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

13.Senior legal executive Stacia Cardille, whose alertness stood out among Twitter leaders, replied, “I know” and “I thought my silence was understood.”

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

14.Cardille then passes on conference details to recently-hired ex-FBI lawyer Jim Baker.

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

15.“I invited the FBI and the CIA virtually will attend too,” Cardille says to Baker, adding pointedly: “No need for you to attend.”

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

16.The government was in constant contact not just with Twitter but with virtually every major tech firm.

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

17. These included Facebook, Microsoft, Verizon, Reddit, even Pinterest, and many others. Industry players also held regular meetings without government.

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022 of the most common forums was a regular meeting of the multi-agency Foreign Influence Task Force (FITF), attended by spates of executives, FBI personnel, and – nearly always – one or two attendees marked “OGA.”

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

19.The FITF meeting agendas virtually always included, at or near the beginning, an “OGA briefing,” usually about foreign matters (hold that thought).

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

20. Despite its official remit being “Foreign Influence,” the FITF and the SF FBI office became conduit for mountains of domestic moderation requests, from state governments, even local police:

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

21. Many requests arrived via Teleporter, a one-way platform in which many communications were timed to vanish:

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

22.Especially as the election approached in 2020, the FITF/FBI overwhelmed Twitter with requests, sending lists of hundreds of problem accounts:

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

23. Email after email came from the San Francisco office heading into the election, often adorned with an Excel attachment:

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

24. There were so many government requests, Twitter employees had to improvise a system for prioritizing/triaging them:

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

25. The FBI was clearly tailoring searches to Twitter’s policies. FBI complaints were almost always depicted somewhere as a “possible terms of service violation," even in the subject line:

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

26. Twitter executives noticed the FBI appeared to be aasigning personnel to look for Twitter violations.

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

27.“They have some folks in the Baltimore field office and at HQ that are just doing keyword searches for violations. This is probably the 10th request I have dealt with in the last 5 days,” remarked Cardille.

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

28. Even ex-FBI lawyer Jim Baker agreed: “Odd that they are searching for violations of our policies.”

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

29.The New York FBI office even sent requests for the “user IDs and handles” of a long list of accounts named in a Daily Beast article. Senior executives say they are “supportive” and “completely comfortable” doing so.

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

30. It seemed to strike no one as strange that a “Foreign Influence” task force was forwarding thousands of mostly domestic reports, along with the DHS, about the fringiest material:

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

31. “Foreign meddling” had been the ostensible justification for expanded moderation since platforms like Twitter were dragged to the Hill by the Senate in 2017:

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

32. Yet behind the scenes, Twitter executives struggled against government claims of foreign interference supposedly occurring on their platform and others:

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

33. The #TwitterFiles show execs under constant pressure to validate theories of foreign influence – and unable to find evidence for key assertions.

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

34. “Found no links to Russia,” says one analyst, but suggests he could “brainstorm” to “find a stronger connection.”

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

35. “Extremely tenuous circumstantial chance of being related,” says another.

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

36. “No real matches using the info,” says former Trust and Safety chief Yoel Roth in another case, noting some links were “clearly Russian,” but another was a “house rental in South Carolina?”

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

37. In another case, Roth concludes a series of Venezuelan pro-Maduro accounts are unrelated to Russia’s Internet Research Agency, because they’re too high-volume:

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

38.The Venezuelans “were extremely high-volume tweeters… pretty uncharacteristic of a lot of the other IRA activity,” Roth says.

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

39. In a key email, news that the State Department was making a wobbly public assertion of Russian influence led an exec – the same one with the “OGA” past – to make a damning admission:

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

40. “Due to a lack of technical evidence on our end, I've generally left it be, waiting for more evidence,” he says. “Our window on that is closing, given that government partners are becoming more aggressive on attribution.”

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

41. Translation: “more aggressive” “government partners” had closed Twitter’s “window” of independence.

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

42. “Other Government Agencies” ended up sharing intelligence through the FBI and FITF not just with Twitter, but with Yahoo!, Twitch, Clouldfare, LinkedIn, even Wikimedia:

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

43. Former CIA agent and whistleblower John Kiriakou believes he recognizes the formatting of these reports.

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

44.“Looks right on to me,” Kiriakou says, noting that “what was cut off above [the “tearline”] was the originating CIA office and all the copied offices.”

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

45. Many people wonder if Internet platforms receive direction from intelligence agencies about moderation of foreign policy news stories. It appears Twitter did, in some cases by way of the FITF/FBI.

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

46. These reports are far more factually controversial than domestic counterparts.

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

47. One intel report lists accounts tied to “Ukraine ‘neo-Nazi’ Propaganda.’” This includes assertions that Joe Biden helped orchestrate a coup in 2014 and “put his son on the board of Burisma.”

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

48. Another report asserts a list of accounts accusing the “Biden administration” of “corruption” in vaccine distribution are part of a Russian influence campaign:

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

49. Often intelligence came in the form of brief reports, followed by long lists of accounts simply deemed to be pro-Maduro, pro-Cuba, pro-Russia, etc. This one batch had over 1000 accounts marked for digital execution:

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

50. One report says a site “documenting purported rights abuses committed by Ukrainians” is directed by Russian agents:

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

51. Intel about the shady origin of these accounts might be true. But so might at least some of the information in them – about neo-Nazis, rights abuses in Donbas, even about our own government. Should we block such material?

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

52. This is a difficult speech dilemma. Should the government be allowed to try to prevent Americans (and others) from seeing pro-Maduro or anti-Ukrainian accounts?

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

53. Often intel reports are just long lists of newspapers, tweets or YouTube videos guilty of “anti-Ukraine narratives”:

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

54. Sometimes – not always -Twitter and YouTube blocked the accounts. But now we know for sure what Roth meant by “the Bureau (and by extension the IC).”

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

55. The line between “misinformation” and “distorting propaganda” is thin. Are we comfortable with so many companies receiving so many reports from a “more aggressive” government?

— Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) December 24, 2022

56.The CIA has yet to comment on the nature of its relationship to tech companies like Twitter. Twitter had no input into anything I did or wrote. The searches were carried out by third parties, so what I saw could be limited.

We are entering a very dark age…..

Land of the Magna Carta.

WATCH: Outrage as woman praying silently is ARRESTED in UK street – ‘Taken away by police for a thoughtcrime’

Charity worker, 45, asked by officers if she was ‘praying in her head’ arrested

By: Paul Sapper, GB NEWS, December 24, 2022:

Published friday 23 December 2022 – 12:05 Last updated friday 23 December 2022 – 16:02

More than 34,000 people have signed a petition after a woman was arrested on a UK street while ‘praying silently in her head’.

Charity volunteer Isabel Vaughan-Spruce, 45, was standing quietly on a pavement in Birmingham when she was approached, questioned and subsequently arrested by police.

Officers had received complaints from an onlooker who suspected she was praying. She was not holding a sign or making any visible form of protest.

An online petition calls for Home Secretary Suella Braverman to: “intervene and demand that all charges against Isabel Vaughan-Spruce are dropped”.

In a chilling video which captured the exchange between Vaughan-Spruce and police, viewed 1.5 million times on Twitter, a police officer can be seen asking: “What are you here for today?”

Vaughan-Spruce responded: “I’m just standing here.”

The police officer asked, ‘Are you praying?,’ to which Vaughan-Spruce said, ‘I might be praying in my head’.

She was then arrested on suspicion of ‘failing to comply’ with a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO), in what has been branded by critics as a ‘thoughtcrime’.
