Bill Kristol: Twitter Was Just Censoring "Pornographic" Pictures of Hunter Biden
David French: Yes, And Also, When Biden Demanded Twitter Censor This Story, He Wasn't President Yet, So This Wasn't "Government Action" Yet

Over at the bought-and-paid-for, Lincoln-Project-adjacent Democrat shill operation The Bulwark, soulless leftwing operative Tim Miller claimed that the Twitter/Biden campaign censorship operation was all about... stopping people from posting "pornographic" pictures of Hunter Biden. By which he means: the hundreds of dick-pics and sex pics he took of himself with hookers.

In this... you know, this Russian Disinformation laptop where everything was made up by the Kremlin.

Bill Kristol pushed this bought-and=paid-for actual disinformation.

David French made a similar claim, emphasizing that some of Twitter's censorship involved compromising photos of Hunter Biden. But wait, again -- I thought this was a Russian op...?

French goes on to claim that the DNC and Democrat presidential candidate pressuring Twitter to censor this material is not "government action" because Twitter is a private party and the DNC is also a private party, and totally not the government, and Biden himself, although a candidate for president, was a private party and not the government at the time of the demand.

So this is totally, totally not the government demanding that private actors act as government censors, and any MAGA partisans claiming otherwise are ghastly liars spreading "breathless" libels.

Last night, matt taibbi, an independent journalist, wrote a lengthy Twitter thread he called "THE TWITTER FILES." The thread purported to expose how Twitter made the decision to dramatically suppress discussion of the contents of a hard drive from Hunter Biden's laptop. But it inadvertently did something else entirely: It exposed the new Twitter owner Elon Musk's profound misunderstandings about the First Amendment.

...

I agree with the attorney and election analyst Jeffrey Blehar about Taibbi's thread. Writing in National Review after last night's release, Blehar said the thread contained "few, if any, explosive revelations" for those who've followed the story closely. But don't tell that to Musk. He seemed particularly outraged that one of Taibbi's tweets described how the "Biden team" asked Twitter to delete a series of tweets, including ones that contained nude pictures of Hunter Biden.

Weird how none of this is new to David French -- and yet he's never before mentioned any of it himself, or even retweeted it.

He knows all. And I guess he also suppresses all.

This is, to my knowledge, the first time he's even responding to the government-pressure-on-a-private-actor-makes-that-private-actor-a-government-actor argument that has been front and center in this debate for three FUCKING years now.

He's just pretended this issue away until now.

When you see the weakness of his response, you'll understand why he chooses to pretend the issue doesn't exist, rather than address it.


Responding to a document where a Twitter employee indicated that Twitter had "handled" those posts, Musk tweeted, "If this isn't a violation of the Constitution's First Amendment, what is?" He followed up moments later with a slightly longer statement: "Twitter acting by itself to suppress free speech is not a 1st amendment violation, but acting under orders from the government to suppress free speech, with no judicial review, is."


Last night, on Fox News, Tucker Carlson also picked up the claim about the First Amendment. With characteristic breathless hyperbole, Carlson declared that the documents "show a systemic violation of the First Amendment, the largest example of that in modern history."

Musk and Carlson are both profoundly wrong; the documents released so far show no such thing. In October 2020, when the laptop story broke, Joe Biden was not president. The Democratic National Committee (which also asked for Twitter to review tweets) is not an arm of the government. It's a private political party. Twitter is not an arm of the government; it is a private company.

Joe Biden was running to become the head of government in October 2020 and would be so elected on November 7 (Cite?). He would become the head of government on January 7, four months later.

The DNC, meanwhile, is not merely some private club; it represents the Democrat Part, and the Democrat officials currently serving in the United States government. When the DNC was demanding that Twitter censor material damaging to its candidate to become head of government, the Democrat Party controlled the majority of seats in both chambers of Congress, and had a very live shot at also controlling the executive branch in four months.

This is like a mobster having a capo make a threat to a restaurant owner, and then later claiming, "What does this have to do with me? The capo made the threat, not me."

But for David French, the government acting through the agent and representative body of the party in power in Congress, as well as through the war council of the incoming president, is enough of a technical formality to make this non-governmental action.

Obviously he would make a completely different argument if Trump were making demands of Elon Musk.

Because Elon Musk isn't paying him to be their shyster.


This matters for a simple but profoundly important reason. The First Amendment regulates government conduct. It does not regulate private actors. The text of the amendment itself says that "Congress shall make no law ... abridging the freedom of speech." That restraint on Congress has since been extended to apply to the U.S. government at all levels--local, state, and federal.

If the president has one of his non-government-worker friends -- one of his "Wise Men," as they used to call the group of grayheads that clustered around a president -- to deliver his demands to Twitter, does that make it "non-governmental action," Davey? After all, the Wise Men he sent over to make his demand doesn't have a formal place in government. That satisfies your infantile devotion to technical formalism, right, c0cksucker?

Oh, and by the way, I guess Davey missed the part where The FBI told Twitter to be on the lookout for "Russian hacks and dumps" and specifically mentioned Hunter Biden as a target.

Is the FBI also "just a private party," Davey?

It's time for a patriots at The Bulwark and The Dispatch -- and at National Review -- to begin leaking their financial/donor files. We cannot go on like this. If these people will not tell us who is paying them to say these thing of their own free will, it is time for freedom-loving Americans to make this information available to the public.

26 Jonah claims it is a “preposterous counterfactual” to argue Trump would’ve won if Big Tech & most of the media hadn’t censored & dismissed the Hunter Biden laptop, also calling that as impossible to refute as proving his bottle wasn’t keeping bears away.

There is a reason we have rules. It's so that claims like this don't need to be "proven", because, of course, such proof is impossible. We simply forbid it from the start so it isn't an issue.

To argue that it's all fine because you can't PROVE it would have come out differently is the most cynical kind of garbage. IOW, exactly what we've come to expect from Jonah.

I wanted to see direct comms between the FBI and the DNC and Twitter. I didn't see that and there wasn't any indication (that I saw, but I also quit reading on Friday and haven't gone back through to see what else has gone up) that the government directly ordered the takedown. There was evidence of political motivation in the censorship activity.

But it's possible that those orders didn't go out. They might have, but they needn't. Twitter - like the rest of Big Tech and most of Big Corp more generally - knows how to "work toward the fuhrer." They know what needs to be done and will do it even without orders.

Strictly, it is non-governmental - but to believe that in terms of practical reality, you must either fail to realize or refuse to understand that the State, Party and Press are one big inter-dependent and inter-connected Complex.

Nobody else touched it. In the US. A country of 330M that invented the "free press". Twitter couldn't "suppress" anything.

The scandal is the collapse of the country in terms of information and a press, and especially the absurd attempts by government agencies to suppress the information (with the facially laughable claim of RUSSIA!-disinformation).

The comically corrupt and mediocre "intelligence" types who did this should be forced to document the basis for their hilarious assertions - in a country with different branches of government, and opposition parties, this would be easy and spectacular.

58 The Hunter Biden "porn" was never in the original info, but after Twitter suspended the NY Post, people started focusing on the drugs and prostitutes to gain attention to the story.

Originally they wanted to focus on Hunter and Joe's illegal business dealings and money laundering, but the media did everything to bury and brush off those stories.

It's also comical how they are so worried about "revenge porn" now after spending years claiming Trump went to Russia and had hookers pissing all over the place.

Getting back to the 2020 election, if the laptop story hadn't been repressed, and even more R's got out and voted, and even fewer D's did, the Democrats would have just had to stuff the ballot box harder in MI, PA, and WI in order to get the electoral votes they needed.

85 They all know very well, what "wiggle words" to use, to give them a veneer of legal separation. It is like the threat "nice business you have here, would be a shame if something were to happen to it".

But the government threats were pretty direct and repeated. Same with the attacks on Trump, for years. Thing is, DOJ and FBI and most agencies are in on it, and Congress is mostly afraid of the agencies because they have six ways from Sunday to get you. (if you don't obey them)

93 It's the de facto monopoly status of Twitter (which was always astonishing and incomprehensible) that's the key here. And the utter collapse of the press, as highlighted by one (uno, ein, uma, odyin) news organization (NY Post) publishing what was actually the most explosive and spectacular scandal story ever seen in a presidential campaign in our history - with the rest just ignoring it.

It's not the jawboning of the "press" by political factions or even officials that's new or disturbing. It's that it would succeed, or even come close, or that it didn't become an *additional* bit of fuel for the fire.

Any president that is going against what the Uniparty wants is not going to get their people approved by the Senate. Note that not ONE single GOP senator made a motion to recess during 4 years of GOP Senate control under Trump so as to deny him any ability to put his people in place. Second, the Civil Service Act more or less makes it impossible for a president to directly fire someone like Fauci--one, any such action goes through DC courts after going through Uniparty Merit board appeals. And two, the Uniparty would ensure a special counsel and investigations over any firing just like they did of Comey.

Section 210 internet protection satisfies part one, the story today that Twitter was following government instructions, completes the process and causes Twitter to lose private company status. As a government agent they are required by law to not violate free speech rights. Failure to do so is a criminal violation of 18 US Code 242 which carries penalties ranging from 1 year in prison up to a potential death sentence, for each count, of depriving someone of a Constitutional right.

++++
Twitter is a monopoly for the same reason Facebook is a monopoly and YouTube is a monopoly: network effects.

The key to social networking is the network. You need people to use the thing, and the people who use the thing want to communicate with anyone using the thing, because otherwise you have to juggle way too many disparate venues, your own reach is smaller, etc. Social networks will become monopolies if they succeed and if they don't become monopolies, they will fail.

This is much less true of niche or subject-matter sites (like a car forum, etc.) than it is in the general case. But these firms - any firm that survives in the business - are natural monopolies. Once they are broken up (and they should be), one of the survivors or a new competitor will rapidly become a monopoly again, and will need to be broken up again.

186 Second, the Civil Service Act more or less makes it impossible for a president to directly fire someone like Fauci--one, any such action goes through DC courts after going through Uniparty Merit board appeals. And two, the Uniparty would ensure a special counsel and investigations over any firing just like they did of Comey.

When reform through normal channels becomes impossible, the system will go nonlinear in the near future for good or ill.

Posted by: whig at December 05, 2022 12:54 PM


It is very possible to "fire" a civil servant. My wife did that for DOD and then the VA for almost 20 years. She got so good at it they would fly her around to argue at merit board hearings and union contract negotiations. She even taught contract negotiations for a few years before she left DOD. Her only job with the VA was to get people fired and she was very good at it. You just have to have a good manager that will follow the HR shop's recommendations. If you don't have that, it ain't gonna happen.

Very good chance. Probably approaching 100%. It will make for some very exciting (by C-SPAN standards) committee meetings and some hearing. The soundbites will be pretty great. There will be a ton of moments where the officials score easy rhetorical points and look like they're "doing something." The subjects of the inquiries will all suffer memory lapses or grandstand.

Then everything will wind down, there will be recommendations for further investigation, the DoJ will announce a new training protocol, and the House of Representatives will increase their budgets by 7%-10%.

218 Joe, agree on network effect, and what were once termed "technical" monopolies as well as natural monopolies - but the solution to that was regulation (power and other utilities).

So the solution is just an ongoing regulatory correction, as needed? Of course the likely course will resemble the Ma Bell break-up: the blobs slowly re-coalesce into bigger blobs, though never quite as big as the original, which had official monopoly status.

This standard and solid network-effect analysis intersects with the particulars of this case - namely the lack of a real press any more, lack of diversity in "news". The latter problem isn't so easily solved, but possible addressing the first one could shake things up a bit.

Essentially, yeah. Something like that. When they get to monopoly scale, break them up. The successor (either a part of the parent or someone new) will get to that scale, too. Break it up and repeat the process. This will be destructive to enterprise value and might inhibit innovation in that industrial space because the risk of success then breakup might outweigh the benefits of investment.

238 Getting back to the 2020 election, if the laptop story hadn't been repressed, and even more R's got out and voted, and even fewer D's did, the Democrats would have just had to stuff the ballot box harder in MI, PA, and WI in order to get the electoral votes they needed. No way was Trump going to be allowed to win.

Very good chance. Probably approaching 100%. It will make for some very exciting (by C-SPAN standards) committee meetings and some hearing. The soundbites will be pretty great. There will be a ton of moments where the officials score easy rhetorical points and look like they're "doing something." The subjects of the inquiries will all suffer memory lapses or grandstand.

Then everything will wind down, there will be recommendations for further investigation, the DoJ will announce a new training protocol, and the House of Representatives will increase their budgets by 7%-10%.

They believe that because even the fall of the Soviet Union resulted in little retribution from the people--Gorbachev died in bed recently for example despite killing quite a few people in the Baltics on his way out of power.

Not sure this is going to happen as apparently the PTB have basically intertwined finances to the extent that when one country blows, they all blow at the same time in the West. Now, that includes even Switzerland and its famed banks (see the Fed Reserve recent actions for that).

Even the developing world will take a hit like the Tigers in Asia, China, and India because they cannot absorb all of the potential production in their internal economies.

I am a bit afraid of something like the Thirty Years War in Europe where leaders are assassinated, mobs drag people out in the streets to be executed, and everything is made more violent and bloody across the world by modern technology. Essentially, the longer one delays needed reforms, the worse the correction will be.

309 I'm a bit afraid it WON'T be like the 30 years war. And instead it will be a slide in a cyber distopia where the proles are wage slaves, at best.
Posted by: Mark Andrew Edwards, Buy ammo, food, water at December 05, 2022 01:14 PM (V6f9+)

The brutality of the 30 Years War was partially due to the fact that the entire thing was fought by mercenary bands who saw only two paths for survival: Actual literal wage slavery as peasants, or signing up with an army and looting their way through life.

NeverTrump was always a status quo thing where like Buckley, they were shouting STOP at any changes in the GOPe. The reason is that they were not about to risk their dinners and wallets over any such reforms such as America First.

The US government has been balls-deep in cartel business since the 1980s. You can argue whether it's justified or effective (I'd argue that it's neither), but you can't argue that it happens.

336 Slightly OT but not really from the standpoint of The Conspiracy.

Amazing to me how the intentional SPREAD of Covid by the Chinese still gets no traction.
Whether or not intentionally leaked, the Chinese without question intentionally promoted its spread to Europe and the world, by a combination of its own travel policies, and withholding critical information early on.

Clearly that wanted (at least) the world to share its misery. But between "Covid origins" and "Chinese Zero Covid" policies ever since, it seems no one in authority has focused on this obviously intentional crime, war crime and act of war.

And, of course, all complicit in that intentional, early spread (looking at Eco Health and its partners in the CDC) need to be nailed for at LEAST this. There are obviously so many more crimes against humanity, by many involved. But the intentional spread is already proven.

Trump, Elon, and a few others are the people who are willing to say the things we aren't supposed to say. And they look quizzically and say it right out loud.

This is why they are hated by everyone who is socialized to not say those things.

Ace has probably paid a terrible price in 'friends' that turned around and shat on him, in finances by running this blog, and probably even strange interest from government agencies and private investigators.

What the global media will fail to mention when the operation drops is that they are "underage" for *drinking*. Which is not the same as underage for sex but it won't make a difference. No man can defend against the image produced by the word "underage". He will be branded with it and have to find some way to escape.

Yes they've done it on a small scale in Florida and he's handled it, but that's not the same as when the op really starts.

Both men are Exhibit A in why if anyone uses Twitter, even with Musk running it, you are correct to assume they are likely deficient as human beings.

Kind of a throwback to Usenet in the day with flamewars as a regular feature.

One can always disagree without being disagreeable and that line is crossed on a blog when a person starts making personal insults or threats to other commenters. Similarly people telling a blog proprietor what they should or should not say is another pita type commenter better off excluded from a community.

Assholes being banned for posting inadvisable shit usually then cling to the first amendment in the same way that those who murdered their parents cry to the judge about being orphans.

I won't defend personal attacks. But a leavening of assholes does keep things from turning into a prayer circle. A little flamewar now and then is healthy, so long is it doesn't become personal. Or when people start stalking people, across threads. If you can leave it behind in a new thread it can be cathartic.

This is Ace's blog and I'm fine with whatever he wants to talk about. I just may not chime in if I find a topic irritating or whatever.

All that throat clearing aside, I understand what you're saying and MOSTLY agree with you.

507 Fentanyl used to be legal as a DEA Class II drug. It was a prescription drug for weight loss (baby speed). I know, because the little drug company I used to work for sold it as a generic, and we did inventory of it down in the vault periodically.

Fentanyl now is a a cheap synthetic coming out of China, and who knows how pure it is? I know of several people who have lost their kids to heroin/Fentanyl overdose. Mexican Brown heroin is heavily cut with cheap Chinese Fentanyl.
And Obama blew the border wide open in 2009, and that's when the OD's started to really take off.
