Very Special Counsel Jack Smith Demanded That Twitter Turn Over User Data for... Anyone Who Had Ever Liked or Responded to a Trump Tweet

Collin Rugg
@CollinRugg


REPORT: The Department of 'Justice' demanded that Twitter (X) hand over a list of users who engaged with Donald Trump's posts in relation to Jack Smith's J6 investigation.

This means many of you may have been targeted.

Smith demanded Twitter provide data on "all lists of Twitter users who have favorited or retweeted tweets posted by [Trump], as well as all tweets that include the username associated with the account (i.e., 'mentions' or 'replies')."

Jack Smith also demanded Trump's drafted tweets as well as his DMs.

Enemy of the people.

Betcha you're allowed to retweet BLM and CAIR without the DOJ requisitioning your personal information. That's "protected first amendment activity."

But for you? It's cause for a criminal investigation.

David Strom:

Did you ever like a tweet sent by Donald Trump?

If so, Jack Smith, the special prosecutor going after Donald Trump has you on a list. In fact, he subpoenaed your name from Twitter.


This is where we are. As I wrote earlier this week if you flew into Washington DC on or around January 6th, 2001, the federal government has put you on a special terrorist watch list and may have Air Marshals following you when you fly. It doesn't matter if you went to the Capitol protest or a job interview, it's all the same to them. You are a suspect and need watching.

Yesterday we learned that Jack Smith subpoenaed vast amounts of information from Twitter about Donald Trump and his followers, including every interaction people had with his account. You could have loved what he said, hated what he said, sent him a direct message, or quote tweeted him.

Again, it's all the same to Smith. You are a person of interest.

No, I am not kidding. If you ever interacted with Donald Trump's Twitter account Jack Smith demanded to know who you are and in what way you interacted with Trump on Twitter.

If this sounds like some police state BS, it's because this is some police state BS.

We wouldn't know about this but for the fact that Smith was sued and the court sided with the news organizations who argued that it was in the public interest to know what evidence Smith was collecting in order to make his case. The release of the subpoena, which was redacted, gives us a window into the Orwellian pursuit not just of Trump but of all people who have supported him.


As Mollie has said about media coverage of leftwing riots and rightwing riots: If you squint hard enough, you can just make out slight differences in the way the DOJ pursues not only Trump but anyone who ever supported him versus the way it "pursues" Hunter Biden with fraud-on-the-court attempts to grant him complete immunity for all crimes without admitting it's doing that.

Update:

@amuse @amuse 14h

SPYGATE: Biden's DOJ ordered @elonmusk's Twitter to provide his regime with a list of every American who liked, followed, or retweeted President Trump. Are you on the government's enemy list?

LOL: Democrat trolls who followed and retweeted Trump are now asking how they can be removed from Biden's enemy list.

24 The only check on the subpoena power comes from Judges... and as we saw in the FISA cases, they just don't care. They just sign anything put in front of them.

JUDGES need to be held accountable for these blatant abuses... yet as we see here, the only reason we even know this happened, is someone sued to see this information.

I think the Democrat Party broke in a way that can't be repaired within a generation during Obama's term. The white working class abandoned it pretty much completely, and Democrats can only make national elections game by gaming in cities they own completely.

The Republican Party would have split apart as well had it not been for a brash real estate agent from NYC walking in and just saying normal things that Democrat voters and politicians all agreed with in the 80s.

41 The same law enforcement "experts" who didn't think it was suspicious muslims wanted to learn how to fly planes and not land, and ignored dozens of mass shooters, are making sure we're safe because someone thought Trump's Don Rickles act on Twitter was worth watching a 2nd time.

I can even imagine how many agents are assigned to the moron beat, though without a doubt i know they'll have PTSD when they retire.

I hope if Trump (or DeSantis) wins they personally go and fire each one of these traitorous scumbags. Maybe they'll learn after 20 years in prison and having all their family money confiscated.

The GOP is in the same boat as the late US Whig party. The question of slavery killed the Whig party and the question of globalism of the invade the world invite the world is killing the GOP.

That is essentially why the GOP is brain dead--a large portion of the party's officeholders despise and hate their own voters and their views. That is why the GOP always lies and runs coverups to its own voters. It is because the whale donors to the GOP are largely people who don't want to pay taxes and that like government grifting. An example is the Koch asshole who wants invade the world and invite the world to continue along with high energy prices.

It's likely that nobody is on the enemy list yet. Here's how I suspect this will be used. I am not an insider, just familiar with the concepts.

They'll likely use some rudimentary AI to classify the tweets based on sentiment analysis (not perfect - usually about 80%-85% accurate in my experience with sentiment analysis in industry).

For the tweets specifically involving Trump (replies, mentions, etc.), those that fail sentiment analysis - that is, anything where sentiment is judged to be positive - will then see the overall accounts assessed with another rudimentary AI to determine political leanings. Accounts that retweeted or follow but did not add anything (no comments, etc.) get just the second step.

If you come out as "good drone," you end up on no list. If you come out as a wrongthinker, you end up on the list. The NPCs have only AI misclassification to fear.

Power of and.

Most if not all of what DoJ wants is already in government databases, but those databases (most of them, anyway) belong to NSA. DoJ needs its own, since DoJ is a pure Party player whereas NSA is more of a State player. State and Party are of course merged like they are in any single-party tyranny, but the factions are different (it's why the USSR had both Pravda and Izvestia). DoJ probably sees an opportunity to build out its databases rapidly and easily, giving the agency more autonomy within the IC. Jan6 is an excuse in that direction. This massive data demand will likely result in nothing in the near-term, just a big push to the surveillance system DoJ runs.

Musk is definitely the other part. If they can't have X for their own purposes, they need to destroy it. X is by no means a great platform for free speech, but it is better than other major platform and that is unacceptable. The war against X is just beginning and this is probably a little salvo in it.

Not necessarily. But a fair chunk, say 10-20 percent of the population that is heavily over represented in our 'elite' basically hate the other 70-80 percent of the population and identify more with similar elites in other countries than they do with their own countrymen. Thus, you get the ones interested in blowing mega bucks in Ukraine more than Harlem. People more concerned with Syrian refugees than improving the schools in urban centers, and so on. The militarist wing is always urging to invade and stay in shithole countries to improve them while continuing to collect grift at the cost of young American's lives and health.

171 Regarding Mollie's observation about this being accepted by so much of the country:

This is why Trump won in 2016 and earned more votes than any incumbent in history in 2020.

It's also why there was a quiet coup.

Very few in this country just accept this. Some are vehemently opposed. Some are vehemently for it. I think each outweigh the passively accepting.

It's The Book of "Revelation" not Revelation(S) . Sorry; This is a pet peeve of mine. Also, it's medieval folklore that Peter gets to decide who gets into heaven and who does not. When Jesus says "On this rock I will build my church" and the "keys of the kingdom" it is a reference to the declaration of Peter about who Jesus is. I think Peter would probably even wince at the idea that he gets to decide who gets into heaven.

I suppose, I made an Aussie fur felt hat into a fedora by taking off the leather belt and replacing it with a band that I made out of an ugly but color-matched silk tie. I suppose you could modify a fedora with safari flaps, a competent alteration lady could do it.

Is that really a fedora, though? The brim is so narrow it almost looks like a trilby.

"The List" doesn't exist. There are many, many lists and they're owned by different power centers. The DoJ wants its own, so it won't be so dependent on other power centers within the State/Party Complex. NSA has the best data, which is one of the reasons that CISA (under DHS) and DoJ are getting so aggressive.

They want their own, and giant data-pulls like this are a good way to get a head start in building them. It doesn't matter that the pretext is shaky and probably illegal, because the database gets built. Assume someone sues DoJ and DoJ loses. Who cares? DoJ has the data, and will be keeping every last datum forever and will continue to add to them.

Big datafiles actually lead to paralysis as the Stasi's vast files and informant penetration of E. German society did not stop the Berlin Wall from falling. Nor did the KGB files, thugs, and informants prop up the rotting USSR.

The assumption - and it could be correct, at least in part - is that AI helps with this. All the data in the world don't do you any good if you can't sort them effectively. Automation - sentiment analysis, pattern recognition, network analysis and construction, etc. - is supposed to separate the wheat from the chaff. It helps, though it probably isn't enough.

But I kinda don't think that actual intelligence is the point, just like how it isn't the point with the NSA's mega-databases. It is there for a much simpler reason: "you show me the man, I'll find you the crime." It makes arbitrary enforcement and punishment much cheaper than therefore more readily available. Talk back to a DMV clerk and he can put you in the queue for punishment. They can find a crime on anyone and go after him if they desire.

It enables essentially arbitrary destruction of any given person on anyone's whim.

268 I was going to post this on the last thread, but remember how the GOPe used to argue about "just war" endlessly during the WoT and what it ended up being was that US military personnel were allowed to do NOTHING while their enemies were allowed to do ANYTHING?

Well...the left has a notion of just war as well. So, Hamas, for example, is "just". Why? Because the left has declared they are opposing colonialism. And for the left that means literally anything Hamas does is justified.

Now how does it refer to this thread? They have a similiar justification for prosecutions. Since Trump is "bad" - he is allowed to do nothing either as head of the executive or even as a defendant in a trial, whereas Smith is "good" so he is allowed to do literally anything.

Money is useful to introduce a candidate, doesn't work quite that way when the candidate is a known proposition like Trump.

That is why despite Hillary massively outspending Trump--Hillary in office was a known quantity and people had pretty much decided what she would do in office. They voted for something else.

I think for a lot of folks, the coopting via the GOP uniparty strategy is at its end so what comes next. My guess is massive political upheaval in the West as governments are no longer responsive to their populations but to oligarchs in and out of government service.

He never really tanked. It was more of a petering out as Trump won more and more primaries.

Trump is obviously the nominee, barring his voluntary recusal. He's so far ahead it doesn't even seem like a contest. If the Demofascists convict him of something in one of their bullshit persecutions, I bet he wins a big majority of the primary vote, maybe even two thirds.

Whether he can go on to the general election and beat Resident Dementia is an open question, amazingly enough. I think he can, given his polling lead in battleground states, but it would probably be a scary election.

The implicit bargain for all of that was keep us safe, comfortable, and in wealth and the populace stays quiescent. Allow criminals to run wild, taxes to go to the moon, ruin the money so everyone except oligarchs gets poorer, can't provide basic services like education, water, light, and heat, and so on---sooner or later people strike out before they become totally impoverished. Whether it succeeds or not is another question. The revolutions of 1848 largely failed in Europe but it did put enough of a scare in the elites to allow conditions to improve for the average citizen. Bismarck, for example, created social security pensions, not because he was warm hearted but because he wanted political support to consolidate the German state.

He didn't peter out...he won Iowa...and was hanging in there on the early primaries....then the rumors starting piercing the media on his marital "cheating" (which I'd bet the farm was a Fusion GPS project to assure Trump got the nomination). Those rumors were paired up with accusations that he was not eligible for the office (patently false but astro turfed by the media) due to his birth history. Then Trump dominated every primary going forward.

Now, ahead of Tiny Ron’s “huge” debate with Governor Hair Gel tomorrow you are not promoting it. At all.

What happened? You decided to get off Tiny Ron’s bandwagon? Realized that you, CBD, and Kurt Sphincter, among others, were major league dopes promoting Tiny Ron? Chocked stuffing a bag of dicks down your throat?

Don’t be shy, share with your readers. If the head moron like you can learn from your mistakes, it would be inspirational to all your followers.
