FBI's Response to the Twitter Files Does Not Dispute Any Factual Allegation, But Slanders Any American Discussing These Facts and Faulting Their Eager Involvement in Censorship As "Conspiracy Theorists"

And as we know, "conspiracy theorists" are eligible to be deplatformed, so Christopher Wray is gearing up for his next round of bannings.

Michael Shellenberger:


The FBI yesterday responded to the evidence I unearthed in Twitter Files Part 7 suggesting that the FBI may have covered up the Hunter Biden laptop and waged a disinformation campaign aimed at persuading news organizations, social media platforms Twitter and Facebook, and voters that the Hunter Biden laptop was a product of a Russian "hack and leak" operation.

"The correspondence between the FBI and Twitter show nothing more than examples of our traditional, longstanding and ongoing federal government and private sector engagements, which involve numerous companies over multiple sectors and industries," said the FBI. "It is unfortunate that conspiracy theorists and others are feeding the American public misinformation with the sole purpose of attempting to discredit the agency."

The FBI has "traditionally" engaged in censorship operations with Big Tech?


Could it be that the FBI is eager to debate "theories" because it wants to avoid the facts? Consider three key ones:

* The FBI took Hunter Biden's laptop in December 2019 and always knew it was real and didn't come from hacking.

* The FBI spent most of 2020 telling Twitter's senior executives that a "hack-and-leak" involving Hunter Biden would occur in October 2020.

* The FBI was spying on Rudy Giuliani when he gave a copy of Hunter Biden's laptop hard drive to The New York Post.


It's true that we don't know if the FBI agents who warned Twitter of a "hack-and-leak" operation involving Hunter Biden also knew that a) the FBI had Biden's laptop and b) Giuliani was giving it to The New York Post. But they didn't need to know that. They could have simply been following orders from higher-level executives.

Moreover, it was precisely the job of those higher-level executives at FBI to know of all FBI operations, including the investigation of the Hunter Biden laptop, the surveillance of Giuliani, and the warnings to Twitter and Facebook executives of a hack-and-leak operation. And that fact alone is enough for Attorney General Merrick Garland to appoint a special counsel, and for Congress to investigate.

I'm going to demand to know who wrote this defamatory statement -- and who approved it.

Shellenberger further wrote:

Michael Shellenberger
@ShellenbergerMD

At this point, members of Congress should be extremely concerned that FBI is engaged in a cover-up. There needs to be an aggressive investigation of the apparent politicization of the FBI by Congress, and perhaps even a Special Counsel in the DoJ to investigate what happened.

"One way we could get the FBI in front of the committee is to say, 'We're not giving you a penny until you all explain to us what this task force was and why you told Twitter to suppress the Hunter Biden laptop story when you knew darn well it was true'" @RepJamesComer

"Congress never authorized FBI to do this. Gov't has no business censoring speech whether it's liberal speech or conservative speech. They have no business doing it. This is another act by the deep state out of control." @JamesComer

The Twitter Files have confirmed the widespread suspicion that the FBI has behaved inappropriately in its relationship to social media companies. Now, Congress needs to find out if it also behaved illegally.

Via streiff, this from J. Michael Waller:


That is a critical, critical point: It is not using the tools it has available for going after criminal activity, because it has none. It is using instead a suite of tools it has for harassing people for legal activity it merely disapproves of and wants to frighten them into stopping.

People are going to have to go to jail.

No, not under Biden. But under the next President.

I'm afraid Christopher Wray is going to have to make due without that government pension he has been counting on.

Shockingly -- or, I suppose, not shockingly at all -- David French claims the FBI didn't "coerce" Twitter at all, but merely "convinced" them to censor. So this isn't state censorship.

He ignores completely the "joint action" route to corporate behavior becoming state action.

You need to remember three things: 1, David French is and always has been a trash lawyer, 2, David French is a hopeless partisan always making claims about what he wants the law to be based on who he wants to win the current Twitter argument he's in, and 3, all the companies David French works for are being paid by Big Tech to shill for them. They don't want to be found to be in a joint action conspiracy with the government any more than the FBI does.

This Krebs guy has a reason to pretend to be convinced by David French: He was part of the "wargame" that instructed Big Tech executives to shut down any October Hunter Biden story.

That's the kind of thing I probably would have dismissed as a nutter conspiracy theory. I've learned never to say never.

But those that contrary evidence does not exist I have not dismissed no matter how crazy. Never say never.

106 Actually, a new Congress is not bound by an old Congress and can actually pass a new budget/omnibus itself that revises a previously passed appropriations bill.

Chances of that happening are zero though.


They already have us conditioned to think that most of the budget can't be touched and is "locked-in" they are totally helpless to touch anything that hasn't been arbitrarily labeled "discretionary".

And people believe that lie, even when the same Congress totally contradicts itself when it speaks of "government shutdowns" if a CR or Omnibus isn't passed by a certain date.

110 I'll say it again: The DOJ is the gatekeeper. None of this gets remedied until someone takes a broom into the DOJ and clears out the ideologues.

So, even if a new president is installed, he/she would first have to place a leader in the Attorney General position that goes salted earth and clears out the gatekeepers. Unfortunately, the Senate (controlled by the Dems) has to approve the new president's nomination for that role. AND THEY WON'T...if that person poses a threat to their clasp of the DOJ and it's operation.

And, on a side note, I don't think it's possible for a conservative President to ever be elected again. The DOJ owns the application of the law. They are perfectly content to act in support of outright fraud and illegalities on elections....both presidential and senatorial and house.

I can't let the Dems win."

I would say TV is the most fake, followed by 'conservative' websites owned by Salem Communications or vanity presses like the current Breitbart (owned by mega GOP donors the Mercers), Washington Beacon (mega donor Singer), and NRO (owned by techlords), and so on.

There is a severe shortage of actual jobs for writers that pay well so you get grifters like David Brooks, Rich Lowry, and so on that sell out their own side to fill their pockets as 'influencers'.

Writers who are poor ink stained wretches are more likely to be honest and also the first to be deplatformed because no one much wants to hear objective 'truth' anymore.

Yes they do. Theoretically, given some court decisions, they could avoid qualified immunity and sue the specific agents involved for constitutional violations under Bivins (regardless of civil rights laws). At least the 8th Circuit has held that purposeful actions to eliminate free speech rights cannot ever get qualified immunity because the caselaw is clear here that such actions are unlawful. Bivins was an illegal search case so not directly on point but once again there is the old common law adage-for every legal wrong, there must be a way for redress in the court system.

I also boldly predict that much chest-pounding and soundbiting in front of cameras. Many thousands of pages will be sacrificed for this Great Project as well. Many Strongly Worded Letters will be issued! In 3-4 years some minor schlub 3 months away from retirement will be fingered for the requisite "punishment" of...retiring slightly earlier than planned. And that will be the end of it. Then Sean Hannity will tell us that the FBI are mostly good ham 'n eggers.

Make your own happiness by keeping the Lord in your heart. Don't be persuaded by the prince of this world or its trappings. Expect nothing in return except the fullness of your heart. Do good deeds, take care of others, care for your family and always above all else come back to God. This world will always disappoint. He will not.

244 Based on Ace's post last night stating he's done with the GOP, either this blog goes defunct or a whole new base of action-minded readers is required. I for one am looking forward to seeing the current crop of Instapanzy keyboard warriors and purpled-pilled GOPer handwringers forced out. Alas, I'm betting the "I'm done with the GOP" is a hollow threat and the smart military COBs with their milquetoast ELCA potluck politics and sensibilities remain king. It's becoming conceivable that Instapanzy, AOS, Althouse etc... are shadow-funded operations to not only keep tabs on conservatives but more importantly offer a cathartic outlet that provides a sports-like fan following for conservatives to blow off steam and reduce the possibility of mass uprising. If you keyboard warrior COBs took just 10% of the time you waste cruising the "conservative" political internet venting and bloviating in your echo chamber clubs and instead walked out to the street with a sign and protested we'd be living in an entirely different America.

Believing everything is evil is just as wrong as believing everything is good. When you cannot tell the difference, it is not 'truth' but simply despair and desolation of the soul.

The truth exists in the actions that individuals take as by their fruits, ye shall know them. Good people commit good actions; bad people do evil. Sometimes people do both good and evil. That is often the case as both saints and demons are relatively uncommon just like pure metal is.

My issue is more broad than that, government is proscribed from going fishing. I shouldn't have to worry that what I say is subject to criminal prosecution because some G Man is reading what I write. I have a presumption that they have to get a warrant first. So they can surf porn all day but they have no right to surf FaceBook because they lack a particularized suspicion. These people... they need to all fuck off.

And besides all that, if the Founders had wanted a Federal police force they would have written that in. They did not. So the FBI existence is unConstitutional. IMHO

312 Comer brings up the key distinction I've been talking about in connection with the Mega-Scandal/Keystone Coup from the start: there are grossly inappropriate, outrageous actions by state actors involved, only some of which are actually violations of law.

One might cram the entire FBI activity in connection with elections into this first, not illegal but wildly inappropriate, category. Why is the FBI even thinking about being involved in things for which it has no responsibility, and little to zero competence or expertise? WTFF? Election "command post"? Oh - you mean to monitor election process to guard against massive deprivation of civil rights via fraud?

Oh. Right. To "guard against" mostly imaginary "foreign interference", none of which is material to any election, ever?

That this has not been the reaction from Congress and others from outset is redundant confirmation of how collapsed the system is.

314 HSV Utilities is saying the curtailment is "Voluntary", asking people to turn off unneeded lights, and not run washers, dryers, dishwashers, etc.

Which means turn EVERYTHING on, because that's the only way this crap ends.

316 So, the January 6th denounced Trump for "doing nothing" during the brief occupation of the Capitol.

Precisely what was he supposed to do?

He tried mobilizing the National Guard to protect the Capitol - the Pentagon refused.

He didn't control the Capitol Police - Nancy Pelosi did.

He didn't control the DC cops - the mayor of Washington did.

Was he supposed to order the Marines at Marine Barracks to fix bayonets and charge the Capitol?

319 So, when was the last time the FBI supposedly solved a serial killer case and ended the panic in any community? Makes me wonder a bit more about all of this profiling gibberish now. Something tells me that the.yellow Volkswagen bug driving 32 to 34 year old white guy with a fumanchu who bowls left handed Nostradamus shit was inserted after the fact. And do they not claim that there are probably 33 plus psychopaths operating on US soil at any given moment with who knows how many victims between them?

323 Thousands of aggregate nights in cities across the fruited plain resulting in billions of defenestrations, lootings, arsons, batterys, and even murders and FBI sat on their ass. Not a one of them went to the riots and busted them up. At least Kyle got three of the bastards. That's more than 9 billion $ worth of FBI budget accomplished.

325 I wonder, knowing what we know now, how many feds are actually in Antifa as street activists.
I've examined the pictures and seen some pretty buff looking people in their groups. If you still have a V torso under the baggy black hoodie, you're not the typical soiboi we think of as Antifa. These guys can climb walls like spider monkeys and fight with cops, and yet the pictures of those arrested (thank you Andy Ngo) show derelicts and junkies that should be a pushover.

Yet the feds that infiltrate "right-wing" groups do so only to make a bust and discredit the cause, but on the left they actually help to achieve the goals of the groups.
Weird, that. Well, if it were true, that is

I actually think that's what they wanted him to do, basically leverage the military to kill his own people, 99% of who were protesting peacefully at the capitol

Anything less is a criminal and impeachable offense

332 What ARC just said - and in this connection one needs do little more than read the long letter from the former Capitol Police chief written just after the incident.

He details many things, sufficient actually for someone reading just his letter to reasonably conclude that the trouble-makers at the Capitol were a different group than rally-goers, that the DC mayor, congressional leadership, and DOD (less so) simply failed to respond to Capitol Police requests for additional resources on Jan. 6. In other words, whatever a fair-minded common sense person would initially conclude looking at events.

Instead, the country is so grotesquely degraded that we have a ridiculous, lawless "commission" spending 2 years trying to find some absurd non-existent connection to Trump. Go read his letter, it's almost all you need to know about Jan. 6. (sorry, don't have link handy, should be easy to find)
