Not a Theory

The nerds over at Wikipedia define a conspiracy theory as:

A conspiracy theory is an explanation for an event or situation that asserts the existence of a conspiracy by powerful and sinister groups, often political in motivation, when other explanations are more probable. The term generally has a negative connotation, implying that the appeal of a conspiracy theory is based in prejudice, emotional conviction, or insufficient evidence.

A deeper dive into the Twitter files shows that the Federal government was sending so many requests for censorship to Twitter that the company was having to triage the requests. Twitter was receiving requests from more than 80 agencies- everyone from the DOD to the FBI.

This wasn’t a few rogue employees. This was a coordinated effort by hundreds of employees of dozens of federal agencies to influence the election. At this point, you can consider all branches of government to be suspect: Local and Federal agencies all working together to put their thumb on the scale.

There is more than enough evidence here to show that this was not just some conspiracy that exists only in the minds of paranoid wearers of tin foil hats. This did happen and is happening. Our nation is no longer a republic with democratically elected representatives.

Twitter Still Doing It

Thanks to commenter GuardDuck, I took the following phrase and used it to respond to quite a few lefties on Twitter:

Our current voting process is based on trust. We trust that the process is open, honest, and fair. If people question that process, the victor must open the process to review so that the public can see it was fair. Not doing so violates that trust and is evidence of fraud.

On one occasion, that Tweet generated hundreds of likes.

It has since disappeared from Twitter. I cannot find it anywhere in my feed or history. I don’t care what Musk claims, his bullshit lefties are still censoring people.

Twitter

Now that the assholes who were the censors over at Twitter have been fired, the platform is now fun again. I am involved in a discussion of voter fraud on the platform, and have attracted the attention of a few lefties who are frankly pissed off that I think the 2020 election, and by extension, the 2022 election, were rigged. They asked how it was possibly rigged. I responded with:

The same way it worked in Broward county Florida before it was fixed: the Dems keep “finding” boxes of Democrat ballots over several days until their guy wins.

So, they ask. How did Florida count votes so quickly this time? My answer:

Because Florida counts votes with machine. You scan your ballot in, and it gets recorded right there. In AZ case, they WANT it to take longer, so they have time to “find” more ballots in order to get their desired outcome.

One of them is claiming to be a lawyer with 28 years of experience is demanding that I provide evidence of this. When I did, he dismissed it all as “rantings of right wing click bait sites.” When I pointed out that a summary of my grievances was found at here at Larry Correia’s site, he dismissed it out of hand by saying that “some rando on the Internet calling himself a monster hunter isn’t reliable.” Then began with the statements about “Not one legal case has been brought that proves fraud.” Then began quoting cases that didn’t say what he claimed that they did. So I pointed out that Twitter isn’t a court of law, and I don’t need to build a legal case in order to have an opinion.

That was when a list of other lefties came in and began telling me things like this:

That’s no excuse for paranoid, delusional ranting on your part. Spreading election misinformation is against the rules here, by the way.

Then it progressed to this:

I have reported this guy to Twitter. With the way things are going, they probably won’t do anything.

Twitter still hasn’t done anything. Even if they do, it isn’t hard to set up a gmail account and use it to get a new Twitter account. You can’t silence us. The people who believe one way or the other won’t be swayed, but people on the fence can see these oddities for themselves. So I taunt them when I can.

He WILL be silenced, and so will you

Bide was asked by a reporter “DO you think that Elon Musk is a threat to US national security, and should the US and with the tools that you have will you investigate his joint acquisition of Twitter with foreign governments which would include the Saudis?” Here was his response:

I think Elon Musk’s cooperation and/or technical relationships with other countries, uh, is worthy of being looked at. Whether or not he is doing anything inappropriate, I’m not suggesting that. I’m suggesting that it’s worth, worth being looked at. Um, and uh, and uhm, that’s all I’ll say.

The left is rejoicing that they defeated fascism. Remember that as the left shuts down all opinions that they consider to be a threat to their one party rule. The only reason why this blog hasn’t yet been targeted is that my traffic is nowhere near high enough to gain their attention.

A Word on Free Speech

After I wrote my last post on government censorship, they went and tried to do it harder. Biden is screaming about Twitter. Hillary is demanding that the EU, who has no Constitution protecting free speech, pass laws to force Twitter into censorship.

I planned for this. My server is outside of US or EU control. I’m not saying that this website can’t be silenced if the US is determined, just that it won’t be easy.

I agree with Aesop on this one: I just don’t see these wholesale tyrants giving up power voluntarily. There will be bloodshed.

Some have suggested that I switch this blog to an email service if free voices on the Internet are finally silenced. I don’t think I will do that. Should that come to pass, I think we can agree that at that point, the time for talking is over.

There are other ways to be heard, and we won’t be silenced.

Propaganda Warfare

Back in June, I wrote about the Biden administration establishing a Ministry of Truth to police anyone online that would distribute facts that the government finds objectionable. This is one of the reasons why my server isn’t in the US. Anyway, the idea isn’t dead. A leaked document from DHS (pdf Alert) details how the Feds are going to police wrongthink and limit what people have to say. The Office of the Inspector General in the Department of Homeland Security is endeavoring to stop “dangerous” ideas from spreading on the internet. They claim that they won’t be preventing free speech, but I don’t trust that any further than I do a promise from Obama that I can keep my doctor.

The Global War on Terror has effectively ended. Terror won, in case you didn’t know. The US got its ass kicked, and the Afghanistan airlift proved that to the world. Anyway, all of those Federal Employees have to find something else to do in order to mark time and fulfill budgets until they can retire, so the war on freedom inconvenient facts disinformation is just the ticket. The Intercept reports:

Behind closed doors, and through pressure on private platforms, the U.S. government has used its power to try to shape online discourse. According to meeting minutes and other records appended to a lawsuit filed by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, a Republican who is also running for Senate, discussions have ranged from the scale and scope of government intervention in online discourse to the mechanics of streamlining takedown requests for false or intentionally misleading information.

That is why my server is in another country. In fact, tech companies including Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, Discord, Wikipedia, Microsoft, LinkedIn, and Verizon Media meet on a monthly basis with the FBI, CISA, and other government representatives . The meetings between the private sector and government are for representatives of those government agencies to dictate how firms would handle what the government calls ‘misinformation’ being distributed over media- including social media.

Just months before the 2020 election, the FBI and other agencies met with large media companies to discuss how the election results would be reported. Why would you need to discuss them? Just report the results. The answer, of course, is that the results and their dissemination would have to be “handled” and “spun” so that the people would accept what they were being told.

During the March 2022 meeting, an FBI official warned that statements made on social media could undermine support for the U.S. government. According to senior executives from Twitter and JPMorgan Chase who were in attendance in that meeting, the FBI stressed that we need a media infrastructure that is held accountable. In other words, the FBI is attempting to turn our media, including social media, into official information outlets of the state.

The FBI even has a special portal that they use to “request” that Facebook censor or throttle certain statements or information. The DHS division that is in charge of managing this is called the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). The CISA has an advisory committee that includes the former Twitter head of legal policy, trust, and safety- none other than Vijaya Gadde, who was fired this week by Elon Musk.

That committee drafted a report calling for the CISA to remake the “information ecosystem.” This would involve the CISA closely monitoring “social media platforms of all sizes, mainstream media, cable news, ‘hyper partisan’ media, talk radio and other online resources.” The committee made the case that the government needed to take steps to halt the “spread of false and misleading information,” with a focus on information that undermines “key democratic institutions, such as the courts, the financial system, or public health measures.”

When business and government merge in order to forward the aims of the government to control the population is Mussolini Fascism.

“The Fascist conception of life,” Mussolini wrote, “stresses the importance of the State and accepts the individual only in so far as his interests coincide with the State. It is opposed to classical liberalism [which] denied the State in the name of the individual; Fascism reasserts the rights of the State as expressing the real essence of the individual.” Sound familiar? To me, it sounds like the very platform of the Democrats today.

Gizmodo is getting onboard with this:

Gullible people eat up a gross diet of disinfo and loosely-factually-vetted, ideology-soaked infotainment, then run off to cause chaos in the real world. Who knows how bad things could get now with Elon on the loose

The odd thing about all of this is that the leftist media is screaming about how Donald Trump and Elon Musk are the ones spreading disinformation, but they aren’t the ones in charge of the government, now are they? The left is trying to insinuate that the appointees of Donald Trump are still in government and trying to sow disinformation, but I am not sure that anyone with half a brain thinks that DJT was ever in charge of the bureaucratic branches of the swamp.

The government is expanding its efforts to control the media. That same inspector general report details how the Customs and Border Protection determines whether information spread through social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter are accurate. The report also lists how agencies like Immigration and Customs Enforcement determine whether social media accounts are bots or humans, and how the mayhem caused by bots affects behavior. The Secret Service has reportedly also expanded their purview to include disinformation.

Keep in mind that President Biden has said that MAGA Republicans are the enemy of the state, and now you see how the war on those who would oppose the left is proceeding. Be ready.

Awww… Who’s a sad clown?

Robert Reich:

What ever happened to last year’s opinion?

LOL. You told people that if they didn’t like it, they should get their own Twitter, so they did. Schadenboner.

Correction

I want to make a correction to my earlier post about the Rubio staffer who was attacked. It turns out that the attacker was Christopher Monzon. The man who attacked him was Javier Jesus Lopez. I got the names reversed in my original post.

I also want to add that the press, especially the openly communist press in Miami, is running with the “white supremacist” claims. The press is now reporting that Monzon was at the Charlottesville protest. I don’t see what that has to do with anything. Let’s say that every claim is true- he WAS at the Charlottesville protest. How would his attacker have known that? Even if Monzon was there, and even if his attacker knew that, does that mean his attacker gets a free pass?

This is dangerous territory. A continuation of Antifa’s “punch a Nazi” campaign, it’s a call to political violence. They forget that this can work both ways. Did a person say something mean about you? Beat them within an inch of their lives…” I seem to recall a certain asshole calling me deplorable.

Targeting

Communists are still committing violence against the right. A staffer for Marco Rubio suffered serious injuries late Sunday night while knocking on doors as a campaign worker.

“Last night one of our canvassers wearing my T-shirt and a DeSantis hat was brutally attacked by 4 animals who told him Republicans weren’t allowed in their neighborhood in Hialeah, Florida”
