A guide to the Twitter Files.
Twitter Suppress the Hunter Biden Laptop Story / Congress Reacts with Some Unnamed Democrats Demanding More Censorship
Twitter applied a double standard to secretly censor conservative speech, then lied to Congress about it.
Twitter’s interaction with the FBI and their build-up to censorship of President Trump beginning with the 6 January Capitol walk-through
The internal debate among deeply progressive Twitter staff whether to deviate from their rule and ban President Trump 7 Jan. 2021
Documenting the decision to ban the sitting President, Donald Trump, from Twitter on 8 January, including internal and external pressure to do so. It was a decision that emboldened Twitter to dive headlong into censorship, both with and without government partners.
The FRB criminally partnered with Twitter to abridge the free speech of Americans. The FBI, in response to the release of the Twitter Files, has dismissed them as a “conspiracy theory.”
The FBI criminally insinuated itself into the Hunter Biden Laptop situation, insuring that Twitter censor NY Post stories about it, initially on the basis that the laptop was hacked and, alternatively, on the grounds that it was “Russian disinformation.”.
Twitter cooperated with the Pentagon and others in operations directed at foreign countries
Twitter worked extensively with other government agencies, including the CIA, to censor Americans
The government criminally directed Twitter to censor users who challenged the government narrative about Covid and vaccines, with Twitter later expanding censorship on its own ideologically-motivated initiative.
Sen. Warner, Hillary Clinton, and the Senate Intelligence Committee all pushed the fraud of Russian misinformation and put pressure on Twitter to take part in a regime of censorship by removing all accounts flagged by the FBI and others.
The FBI, other government agencies, including even some members of Congress, criminally conspired directly with Twitter to abridge the free speech of Americans under the guise of combatting foreign influence. Some of the evidence of foreign influence they cited was nothing more than mentioning any narratives Democrats found inconvenient.
Dr. Scott Gottlieb, the subject of this thread, was head of the FDA from 2017 to 2019. Afterward, he joined the board of Pfizer, for which he was paid $365,000 in cash and stock in 2021, the last year for which such information is available on-line at the moment. The thread concerns Gottlieb’s actions as a member of Prizer’s board. As a Board member, Gottlieb had a fiduciary duty of honesty to investors and the public writ large. His efforts to censor factual information relevant to the value of Pfizer stock is a civil and criminal breach of that duty.
There was never any Russian influence in our elections of 2016 – 2020. This poisonous canard was pushed upon the public in a joint effort of Democrat Representatives and Senators, acquiesced to by Twitter executives who knew better, and publicized by a media acting as an arm of the Democratic Party.
An organization known by the online name, Hamilton 68, headed by a former FBI Counterintelligence Agent Clint Watts and supported by a rogue’s gallery of Democratic Partisans at the ASD, was at the heart of the Russian Disinformation craze that has so distorted our politics of the past near-decade. The Hamilton68 operation itself was a fraud that defamed numerous conservatives as being part of a Russian disinformation operation. Those assertions were accepted without question by the MSM and Congressional Democrats. Senior members of Twitter knew but opted to play along.
The MSM makes a single request by President Trump to censor a tweet a major story, but the MSM wholly ignores all requests to censor coming from the left on a vastly greater scale, such as 300 separate requests for censorship from Maine’s Senator Angus King.
The Global Engagement Center is an interagency group “within” State, including FBI, DHS, NSA, CIA, DARPA, Special Operations Command (SOCOM). It unlawfully produced government-sponsored blacklists targeting conservatives. Disinformation is the counterterrorism mission, rebranded for domestic ideological enemies.
Matt Taibbi’s Statement to Congress about a partnering of state agencies like DHS, FBI, or the Global Engagement Center (GEC), along with “NGOs that aren’t academic” and an unexpectedly aggressive partner, commercial news media – to form a “Censorship-Industrial Complex on social media.
The Virality Project was a coordinated effort to monitor billons of social media posts by Stanford University, federal agencies, and a slew of (often state-funded) NGOs, and to censor any posts, whether or not factually true, that did not support the government narrative about the need for, and the safety of, vaccines.
The alliance to censor and control information was widespread almost beyond the imagination. In what looks like a plot for the series 24, the alliance was a conspiracy across social media that involved academics, journalists, intelligence operatives, military personnel, government bureaucrats, NGO workers and more.
Under Senate pressure, Twitter adopted tests for finding “Russian” related sites that became simple ideological tests and that were exploited by third-party groups to advance censorship.
