So, just read the Weiss Twitter updates.

It's unbelievable - Twitter did exactly what everyone thought - a small group of liberal leaders manipulating content to achieve political goals.

It's not even a question now.

The question is, was anything illegal (probably not), will anything come of it?

But it's hilarious to read the comments from folks (what happened to you Bari?, etc).   People readily admitting that Weiss, Taibbi doing real journalism is somehow "wrong".

Not surprised.  Jack Dorsey testified before Congress that Twitter was not shadow banning conservatives.  An obvious lie.  But there will be zero accountability.

If the emails are to be believed, a lot of this went on behind his back.

Twitter Files 10: Joe Biden's White House was all in for censoring valid COVID-19 information
American Thinker ^ | 27 Dec, 2022 | Monica Showalter
Posted on 12/28/2022, 7:12:19 AM


The Biden administration's enthusiasm for bad ideas like masks, lockdowns, and vaccine mandates was accompanied by a grotesque urge to censor dissidents.

Who says the FBI and its allied wokester government agencies were the only ones using Twitter as a proxy censor to shut down American political discussion?

Turns out that the White House had its snoot in that trough, too, particularly on the matter of COVID-19 information.

That's what independent journalist David Zweig found in his examination of the Twitter Files, in its COVID-19 edition.

According to the Washington Examiner:

The White House pressured Twitter to suppress tweets that included "misinformation" about the COVID-19 pandemic, even when Twitter users shared information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

In the latest string of bombshells from the Twitter Files, the current White House "rigged the COVID debate" by censoring information that was "inconvenient to government policy," discrediting doctors and experts who disagreed with the administration's narrative, and by suppressing ordinary users, including those who shared data from the CDC, journalist David Zweig tweeted Monday.

I am doing something about it by highlighting instances of censorship so people will be aware of what is happening.  Knowledge is power.

I mean this with all due respect 100%


50%+ of the entire US already know whats going on and whose doing it.


50%+ of the entire US keeps posting this stuff all over the internet


50%+ of the entire US sit there complaining behind a keyboard


All the while nothing changes and nothing is going to change.


Anyone who is going to "wake up" has already woken up.

I disagree with your estimated percentages.  Most people do not follow news, or follow enough news sources to get accurate news.  If you expose yourself to news sources across the spectrum, it's obvious that there is incredibly biased coverage.  It's very difficult to determine this if someone only watches (for example) CNN or MSNBC.  Or Fox News.  If you check out the newsbusters.org site, you can find countless examples of how the MSM gives minimal or no coverage to significant stories, if those stories paint liberals/progressives in a bad light. 

So I am doing my part by providing what Butter Bean used to call "learning threads," where you can find a number of stories and resources on a particular subject, in this case censorship.  If you ever want examples of how pervasive liberal/progressive censorship is, you need look no further than this thread. 

If I can inform just one person or get just one person to think, I consider this mission accomplished.

How about to those that claim US citizenship and a massive killing spree?  Both which they do not have.

But feel free to tell us your exploits Priscilla Rambo.

This is a good thing. However, it does appear your bias is towards on the conservative view of what are facts and truths. Of course I could be wrong about this. Perhaps you could provide an example circumstance where the truth or fact supported a more 'liberal' position.

Why?  That isn't a test for being biased in favor of the truth.  A lot of people try and say being "unbiased" means you don't favor one side or the other.  That's BS.  Both "sides" are not created equal.  I hate the Republican Party, and they are full of spineless liars, but by and large they are not psychotic like the Democrat Party has become.  They're not pushing to have kids amputate their twig and berries and boobs and give them puberty blockers.  They don't say men can get pregnant.  They don't engage in massive censorship. 

What I often do is point out the chronic problems, dangers, and hypocrisy I see with liberals/progressives.  I don't need to do the same for conservatives and Republicans, because all you need to do for that is turn on or read almost any news sources.

And yet you are replying every time.  Critical thinking obviously isn't a strong point.

But tell us more about these kills.  Did you beat them to death with your purse?  Smother them with homo fantasies?  Tell us.  We believe you.

Tell Some Truths Bob

Let's see Your Pavlov Response in 1.......... 2................ 3..................

Here are some truths.

You are not American.  You do not have American citizenship.  You have not killed a single person, let alone "many".

You are a liar.  <--- but we already know that.

But tell us more.  Tell us about how a homo obsessed hit man killed so many people.  Sounds like a great lie story.   Tell us, we will believe you.
