Jack Posobiec: Former Head FBI Laywer James Baker Was Scrubbing References to the FBI from the Twitter Files Before He Allowed Matt Taibbi and Bari Weiss to See Them

posobiecclaim.jpg

bakerscrubbingfbireferencessource.jpg

I'm not fully invested in this because Posobiec drops this casually, when it is really huge news. How clear was Taibbi in making this statement? Is there any supposition here on Posobiec's part?

We should know soon enough when Bari Weiss (who's doing the next tranche of the Twitter Files) starts posting.

This exchange between Musk and a Twitter user about Baker is interesting, but Musk is not clear about what he's talking about -- is he talking about Baker's role in the previous suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop (recommending that the company do so, in accordance with the FBI's strong, strong hints that it should) or is he referring to his recent suppression of Twitter Files material?

Unclear, alas!

elonmuskfiringbaker.jpg

If this is true, then James Baker, a lawyer, was screwing over his client in order to protect the reputation of a vile former employer, the FBI.

Also: If he's willing to cross this very clear, painfully bright ethical line, what other scorchingly bright lines did he cross at Twitter? Like, for example: Was he acting as the FBI's back-channel to Twitter, telling them to censor the Hunter Biden laptop so that the FBI could avoid doing so itself?

And before that, what lines did he cross at the FBI? (he was Michael Sussman's contact at DOJ and was essentially a hostile witness against the prosecution, trying to bail his good leftwing friend out of a jam) and in the Kevin Clinesmith doctored FISA application.

What else did he do?

I would say he should be disbarred but we all know there's a special unwritten rule that says lawyers can always champion Regime Interests over those of their nominal employers, right?

yeah, but hard to imagine one guy (like Baker) had the access to completely scrub all evidence. Backups must be kept out of the reach of saboteurs, although there might be some that would help. (but they too would then be at risk).

It does help to have a corrupt FBI/DOJ protecting/encouraging you though. Garland/Wray can hide all the connections in some "Under Investigation for the next decade" file next to the Ark of the Covenant. But Musk and his other lawyers might still have access.

E discovery. Baker as a FBI lawyer would be well aware of it, the process and how he could impact it. You run a search, the data comes, then you exclude things from that pool using limiters/filters. I bet he filtered out his name and the names of his co conspirators. What you really want to see, is what limiters he imposed on the data. That will tell you A LOT.

93 E discovery. Baker as a FBI lawyer would be well aware of it, the process and how he could impact it. You run a search, the data comes, then you exclude things from that pool using limiters/filters. I bet he filtered out his name and the names of his co conspirators. What you really want to see, is what limiters he imposed on the data. That will tell you A LOT.

That suggests he is referring to Bakers present transgressions, as opposed to prior. But it amounts to the same thing: In both cases Baker acted to promote FBI censorship of information damaging to the Junta and Democrats generally.

Understand how insidious this is. If the data was wiped then it would have been obvious that it was destroyed and there would be efforts to recover/reconstruct/ find out who did it. If you are producing things from electronic database, the query is generated and you get say 50,000 emails or maybe 150,000. The actual number doesn't matter its just for the illustration. Then unknown to you somebody takes that result of x thousand emails, imposes a filter on it that restricts any emails that include the word FBI, or "James Baker" or the names of his other co conspirators, or other code words. The data base reduced by a hundred emails. Because there was no way to know how many emails the original query was going to generate, there is no way to know any were missing. No reason to suspect it. No reason to go looking for missing emails. Perfect coverup. The only way they found out is that there was a delay.

he didn't and he didn't destroy or delete content - it all still exists

he pulled out the FBI referencing tweets from the search result Matt was supposed to get
Posted by: BlackOrchid

Would not be surprised that Elon set his ass up. Firing legal types is always a litigation pain so Baker handed Elon a way to fire Baker for cause.

I am sure that Elon knew of Baker's prior history as an eraser for Comey and later Wray at the Feebs and that he was a backchannel to Feeb leadership. But spies are always the least to suspect that they have burned themselves because they have gotten away with it for so long.

Want a clue to what is going on worldwide, start reading espionage and spying novels and books set in the 20th century. It is all there even if the technology is improved here or there. Remember though, spies always can lie convincingly when needed--that is their gift and curse.

180 Lawyers are bound on pain of disbarment from self dealing or withholding information from their clients or acting subversively in dealing with their clients.

The rules are sweeping. A lawyer stands in the shoes of the client and client's best interest is paramount. California has such Bar Rules. They're hammered home. And they're separate civil actions apart from lawyer's criminal jeopardy.

Twitter HQ in California is where ex-FBI lawyer Agent Wray operated from so hopefully Elon's guys are on Wray's six and can get to him via his failure to be faithful to his client.

None, but that's not his role or mission.

It's like James Comey's daughter somehow getting on the Ghislane Maxwell prosecution or any myriad of weird coincidences that involve people who shouldn't be anywhere near a situation being intimately involved in a situation.

There is a cabal that really are the men and women behind the curtain, Baker, Gorelick, et al are part of that cabal.

I don't need to be religious to tell anyone to go stuff whatever it is up their ass when they try to force me to agree with them. "Fuck you, no" should be enough of an exemption for anything. I don't need to invoke Jesus Christ in doing so.

Sounds like he had engineers set up search routines and analytics to get to the comments he want to remove/ ban, so I'm going with "your average DotFed."

I have a suspicion he was also using a Twitter email account to discuss this with his contacts in the Fed. If so, he probably tried to delete those first. Here's to hoping no one helped him out.

==
He was an FBI lawyer. Ediscovery is pretty much intrinsic to their work. There are a lot of programs that let a dummy filter a data set. Just understand that he can intervene and Filter out data easily. All he has to do, is tell IT after the query is done, and before it is forwarded. You send it to me and I will send it back to you approved for release. (he could say, I'm just checking it to make sure there are no regulatory compliance issues raised . . . ) When he gets the data, he puts it into a program. He tells the program to filter out any email that says "FBI" or "James Baker" etc etc. He knows the list of people he needs to protect and their email addresses. He runs the filters. Then the data is reduced by several hundred emails. He then forwards that back to IT as having been the cleared, approved for release. That is forwarded to the reporters - unbeknownst to them it was filtered.

Spouse and I are praying for your family. Here is another prayer;

Almighty God, in your keeping is shelter from the storm, and in your mercy there is comfort for the sorrows of life.
We know that you hear the prayers for Christopher and others who loved his brother. We pray for all who mourn and are heavy laden. Give them strength to bear and do your will. Lighten their darkness with your love. Enable them to see beyond the things of this mortal world, the promise of the eternal. Help them to know you, Lord, are our refuge and strength. In Jesu's name. Amen.

Another prayer which I adapted adapted from our Book of Worship.

280 I've never even heard of Wheeler Dealer.

ITs a great show. This one guy goes and finds old cars that can be fixed up as cheap as he can, then takes them to the second guy, the mechanic, who works on them showing what has to be done and how, then they try to sell the car and make a profit. Sometimes they don't. Most of the time the profit is slim enough that if the mechanic charged for his time, they wouldn't make money.

But it is surprpisingly entertaining stuff, especially the earliest shows when they had a tiny budget. Although the mechanic back then was kind of a douche.

Ant seems like a good guy but Christina is damaged goods. She was married to her co host when the show started, then it was revealed she was sleeping around with their contractor, and the hubby was sleeping around with some other woman, so they divorced... and kept doing the show.
Posted by: Christopher R Taylor
==================
Reality show people seem to be more trash than treasure. It is as if TV production teams seek out damaged goods and put them on display because they know it is only a matter of time before they self destruct thus making it easy to dump them when the cost structure begins to rise.

Okay, this is gonna seem silly but...
When my dad died, my brothers and I (+spouses) had a lot to do. I was the executor of the estate and it was just overwhelming from start to finish. When I couldn't take any more of anything, couldn't even concentrate long enough to hang out here, I watched Bob Ross Joy of Painting series. I have no idea why that show was the one soothing, calming thing for me that let me decompress and focus my mind.
It was the same when my first husband passed 20 yrs ago. Back then I just watched baseball. Didn't know the score or who was playing most of the time. Just watching helped me get through the darkest parts.

So you can get PTSD outside of battlefield experience. Sorry for your loss. I recall when my Father died, relatively young after a short illness it was very traumatic. I would have dreams for months about his still being alive and then wake to disappointment. I would be in crowds, airports, sporting events, and glimpse someone maybe at a distance or walking away from me that for an instant I would swear was him, but it wasn't. They just vaguely reminded me of him. It felt like I was missing a body part. to the point where I would look down to check if my arms and legs were still there. They were. It took about a year for all that to completely stop.

307 When he gets the data, he puts it into a program. He tells the program to filter out any email that says "FBI" or "James Baker" etc etc. He knows the list of people he needs to protect and their email addresses. He runs the filters. Then the data is reduced by several hundred emails. He then forwards that back to IT as having been the cleared, approved for release. That is forwarded to the reporters - unbeknownst to them it was filtered.

which means that if an email was referenced in a chain conversation, the whole chain might disappear, but the references to the conversation outside of the chain won't. If a researcher starts looking at the data with searches there will be apparent holes and missing emails

Which means queries to the Owner if the deletions were on purpose, and for what purpose.

I think the size plus drugs plus not a professional porn male that does gay for pay is what floats their boat. Certain males attract females in a social circle for flings because the female knows the relationship is out of the question but it gives a bump in social class to be among those in the know. Also see the attraction of bad boys in general.

That is always a caveat. I don't think he actually makes stuff up like he's sitting around trying to decide what lie he'll tell today, but I think he breaks too fast on rumors and tips he gets without checking or warning that this may be just rumor. Gateway Pundit does the same thing, and they both get burned a lot.

Finding a loved one who has passed, is a traumatic shock to the system, so PTSD is a thing in your circumstance.

368 which means that if an email was referenced in a chain conversation, the whole chain might disappear, but the references to the conversation outside of the chain won't. If a researcher starts looking at the data with searches there will be apparent holes and missing emails

Which means queries to the Owner if the deletions were on purpose, and for what purpose.
===
Yep. But two reporters looking to post them quickly might not pick it up. Especially if the way they are produced makes it hard to follow conversations. For example instead of being organized by sender, the data is produced organized by date/time. So that every email for a given date (could be hundreds or thousands) for every single user in the system on that date is produced rather than organizing the emails of a single user chronologically, then the next user etc etc making the conversations easier to track.

The idea that two guys could accurately review everything and figure it out in a weekend, is highly unlikely if it was turned out in a giant dump that was designed to be difficult to follow.

You'll have to ask JROD?

Let me see what I recall:

Want to come to my room and have a coffee?

Want to come inside?

The first was at a dorm. The other was outside of a room at a hotel. I can't recall any others right now. The last time I went to a bar and the time before that for about 30 years was either with a straight female friend or with my husband.

413 In the end, the best pick up line for me has been to look in her eyes and smile (promptly) and go with something like "Wow, you're cute. I'm Mark, what's your name?"

Chaos, Protests Erupt In Peru: Constitutional Court Calls President Castillo's Dissolution Of Congress A "Coup"

415 Al-Badawi-Boom, an olive tree in Al-Walaja, Bethlehem, Israel that is estimated to be 4,000-5,000 years old. It is alive. It bears fruit.

That's doubly impressive since Bethlehem is PA territory. I'm surprised it hasn't been collateral damage in some kind of attack.

421 oses are so vigorous and durable you can trim them pretty much any time, and as long as you don't cut it so far down you get to the place where they grafted it to a wild rose, it will be fine.
==
I recommend cutting them well down in the late fall. The more you cut them back the more robustly they will sprout new "arms". If you leave them, the arms get woody and they don't sprout as many stemmed flowers.

Also depending on type, like a rose tree for example, and early wet heavy snow can snap the wood branches, or the trunk of the rose tree.

Cut out the old canes to the ground before the spring growth begins. Then, if still not what you want, trim during the summer soltice.

Oh yes, there is indeed. A more charming version of the current mess that Mike Brewer presides over.

Edd was performing auto fixes that most of us could relate to.

439 Here's the reality IMVHO. You never get over death. You just learn to deal with it. Until I found God that took me to a bad place. Once I found God, I found comfort and salvation. Death is temporary. Eternity is forever. Hold dear memories of those who have passed before you. Embrace the Word. Understand what Jesus told us and where this ends for every one of us. Think about how they lived, not how the died. This has brung me great comfort over the years. YMMV

I agree. Grief never completely goes away (and I'm actually not sure I want it to - I want to hang onto every moment I had). I don't think there is a roadmap but I think there are signposts. We learn to carry it. Sometimes the weight will bring you to your knees. But sometimes the love and memories will lift you up.

I have felt far from God since I lost Jesse but I know in my head God didn't abandon me. The heart has not caught up but it will.
