First, gentle readers, background on the second Twitter release. Law professor Jonathan Turley writes: 

Among those targeted was Stanford professor Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, who wrote about how COVID lockdowns would harm children. He and others have been vindicated in flagging those worries, but Twitter secretly placed him on a ‘Trends Blacklist’ to prevent his tweets from trending. It’s a telling list because it reflects an acknowledgment that such tweets would trend with users if the company didn’t suppress them.

Some of us have been raising concerns over Twitter’s massive censorship system for years, including what I called the emergence of a “shadow state” where corporations carry out censorship the Constitution bars the government from doing.

What’s striking is leading Democrats have been open about precisely this type of corporate manipulation of political speech on social media. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) called upon these companies to use enlightened algorithms to protect users from their own bad reading choices.

Even President Joe Biden called for such regulation of speech and discussions by wise editors. Without such censorship and manipulation, Biden asked, ‘How do people know the truth?’

Oh yes, government was involved. One James Baker, former lawyer for the FBI, and involved in all manner of lies, dirty tricks and thuggery prior to infiltrating Twitter, ended up as a Vice President and main lawyer at Twitter. This is no coincidence. People like Baker are surely infiltrated throughout the media and social media.

On one hand, social media censors, like reporters, need not meet daily to decide exactly how they’re going to screw Normals. It’s not necessary. They think alike, speak alike, act alike, and have the same general goals. It’s only when they must have specific, in the moment, goals that the federal government—FBI, DNC, the White House, various congressional staff thugs, etc.–must make “suggestions.” And to ensure those “suggestions” stick, particularly when more than a “suggestion” is necessary, embedded operatives like Baker are in place, not only to compel action, but to hide evidence of it., and always, to report back to their real masters. Musk surely hasn’t rid himself of them all.

Twitter didn’t need only a few, highly specific censors with deceptive titles. Virtually the entire organization, from executives, to people writing algorithms, to people whose main job was meditating, taking breaks and downing free food, were looking for opportunities to censor. Still, they had many “teams” doing just that, and executives overseeing them, and regime thugs like Baker in place to ensure the right people and ideas were censored at just the right times.

The second revelation from Twitter, this one by Bari Weiss, reveals Twitter executives lied when they said they didn’t shadow ban. They did, and they went beyond even that, suppressing free speech in a variety of ways, and not just occasionally. Multiple “teams” engaged in all manner of suppression of free speech daily. Not only did the engage in outright bans, they banned “trends,” which affected anyone writing about or looking for those trends (Hunter’s laptop, election fraud, etc.), they banned searches for people and topics, and had “do not amplify” blacklists as well. At least one “team” did it at least 200 times a day. They also banned specific topics and words, anything that damaged the D/S/C narrative about Biden, Covid, you name it. That means not only well known people were censored, but little people too, people foolish enough to think free speech applied to them, and most never knew what was happening to them, though most came to suspect something was.

We already know Twitter purposely suppressed The New York Post’s Hunter Biden laptop story. Apparently, a few people at Twitter back then had a conscience, and knew what they were doing was wrong, but none had a conscience sufficiently strong to undo their suppression, or publicly admit what they’d done.

It cannot be said strongly or often enough: Twitter, and to a lesser extent the other social media companies and the media, directly interfered with the 2020 election, and did the same with the 2022 midterms. And yes, they rigged it for Joe Biden. Consider this from the New York Post:

Most Americans not only believe the revelations about Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop are ‘important,’ they also think President Biden had knowledge of — and may have made money from — his son’s foreign business deals, a new poll shows.

Of 1,000 US voters polled by Rasmussen Reports, 66% believe the laptop story is important and 48% percent say it is ‘very important,’ according to the survey published Thursday.

Only 15% of those polled say the contents of Hunter’s laptop are ‘not at all important.’

Gee, I wonder for whom that 15% voted? So what? That’s a recent poll, where’s the evidence Twitter rigged the election? First, it has long been known the media’s general suppression of conservatives and boosting of D/S/Cs is worth at least 15 points in a presidential election. Then consider this from Western Journal.com:

‘To measure the true effect of the media’s censorship on the election, the Media Research Center asked The Polling Company to survey 1,750 Biden voters in seven swing states (Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin), six of which (all but North Carolina) were called for Biden,’ Newsbusters reported.

‘We tested these voters’ knowledge of eight news stories — all important topics that our ongoing analysis had shown the liberal news media had failed to cover properly. We found that a huge majority (82%) of Biden voters were unaware of at least one of these key items, with five percent saying they were unaware of all eight of the issues we tested,’ the watchdog group added.


When evaluating the response of Biden’s voters to stories of which they were largely unaware, Newsbusters noted ‘our poll found that a total of 17% of Biden’s voters told us they would have changed their vote if they had been aware of one or more of these important stories.’

That, gentle readers, is far more than enough to have thrown the election to Trump, even without early morning dumps of 100%–or near-100%- Biden ballots in battleground states, and every other method of election fraud deployed. Without Twitter, and the rest of the media, D/S/C vote fraud would not have been enough for Biden to win.

The SMM Twitter Files archive is here.

Let’s continue with some excerpts from Weiss’ Twitter thread. Take this link to read the whole thing, and a great many responses to it. To find every article in this series, enter “twitter tells the truth” into the SMM home page search bar.

Former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey repeatedly claimed before Congress Twitter did no such thing, and other Twitter executives also serially lied. Was Dorsey lying, or was he really so uninformed about what was happening in his company?  The others were, unquestionably, provably, actively involved in censorship.  When they denied doing it, they were knowingly lying.  Remember, pre-Musk, Twitter was a publicly traded company, with a fiduciary duty to produce profits for its shareholders. As you read, gentle readers, consider whether Twitter was more concerned with screwing Normal Americans in general, and D/S/C’s political enemies in particular, than in making a profit (Twitter was famous for losing money).

Bhattacharya was among non-political doctors and bureaucrats who questioned liberty-destroying Covid mandates.

Twitter didn’t want anyone to be able to find anything about Bongino, a popular Fox host.

D/S/Cs are always big on manipulating the language to their benefit.

They’re admitting it. No doubt there are documents to support all of this.

Think of this as a way for Twitter to get around their own policies, as you’ll see in future posts, they regularly did, particularly where Donald Trump was concerned.

“Libs of Tik Tok” is a site that reports on what D/S/Cs are saying on Tik Tok, the Chinese spy application.

Chaya Raichik is the woman who created Libs of Tik Tok.

Oh, no doubt it’s a distraction from their previous Twitter monopoly on lies and propaganda in general. It’s certainly not old news. One D/S/C narrative is to call the Twitter revelations “a nothing burger.” Here’s how one wag responded to that tactic:

Take the link and read the whole thread, gentle readers. Another D/S/C narrative is accusing Weiss, Taibbi and others exposing Twitter’s crimes of “doing PR for the richest man in the world.”

That one isn’t working either, so the networks have turned to suppressing the story entirely:

The rats are scurrying for cover:

They have good reason:

We end with this:

Final Thoughts: Much more tomorrow, gentle readers.  Twitter information is being released so quickly I’ll likely be doing articles in this series for much, if not all, of this week, where you’ll discover, among other things, only a day or two after Michelle Obama(?!) demanded Twitter permanently ban Donald Trump, Twitter did. See you there.
