BREAKING: After a two-year disappearance, the flu is back. Nearly 3,000 people have already died from the flu this season. They called it Covid last year. The great thing about The Science is that if they provide scientists with just the right social and economic incentives, The Science starts agreeing with them.
Democratic political establishment and big tech censors had colluded destroy free speech and bury stories that would have damaged Joe Biden.
Elon Musk released Twitter executive emails that explore some of the internal debate at the social network over a controversial decision in 2020 to restrict access to a New York Post article about a laptop purportedly owned by Hunter Biden.
In late 2020, in the final weeks of the presidential campaign, Twitter decided to restrict a New York Post article containing unverified claims about Hunter Biden’s activities in Ukraine. Twitter said at the time that the Post story included screenshots and images that violated the company’s “Hacked Materials Policy,” which forbids users from sharing images of hacked materials on the site. The company blocked users from sharing the article on Twitter.
Then-Chief Executive Officer Jack Dorsey later tweeted that blocking the links without providing more context was “unacceptable.” The company also changed its policies soon after restricting the Biden story, saying it would “label tweets to provide context instead of blocking links” to stories. Dorsey also answered questions about the incident before Congress in November 2020 alongside Meta Platforms Inc. CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
The emails also revealed that the Democratic National Committee demanded that Twitter censor 75-year-old conservative actor James Woods, among others. Woods announced on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” that he would be “suing the Democratic National Committee no matter what.”
Twitter data showed that “celebrities and unknowns alike could be removed or reviewed at the behest of a political party.”
The Pentagon lost track of another $2.1 trillion, the world’s 2nd largest food producing country is having 3,000 farms closed by their govt, they’re instituting vax passports & piloting a social credit system digital currency, but sure let’s keep Ye trending…See this:
Sam Bankman-Fried: I don’t know where $10 billion dollars went.
The Pentagon: We don’t know where $2.2 trillion dollars went.
The IRS: You just sent $601.37 via Venmo and don’t forget to report it.
OCTOBER 21, 2021: Biden said he hasn’t visited the border because he hasn’t “had a whole hell of a lot of time.” Since taking office, Biden has spent 268 days on vacation.
San Francisco police clarified that it would not arm robots with guns. Instead, they would be equipped with explosives.
The endgame of the “electric vehicle revolution” is NOT the same number of people driving around, except using EVs instead of gas-fueled cars. The endgame is sharply restricting or eliminating personal transportation for the middle and lower classes.
What happened to the Paul Pelosi/hammer guy story?
Interesting exchange-Doocy: “Kevin McCarthy says that he invited President Biden down to the border…We know the president has never been down to the border.”
KJP: “He’s been to the border.”
Doocy: “When did he go to the border?”
KJP: “He is taking action.”
NSC’s John Kirby: “We aren’t in the business of telling private companies how to execute their initiatives.”
Martha MacCallum: “Twitter’s a private company too so why is Twitter getting one treatment and Apple’s getting another?”
Kirby: “Those are … two different circumstances.”
Dom Lucre – I’m 28 years old and I still haven’t been lucky enough to experience the racism and oppression that LeBron and Oprah experienced that made them billionaires or the segregation that made Obama president…
Washington this week is in full wartime footing. No, it’s not over the Russian invasion of Ukraine or North Korean missiles or even Chinese expansionism. It is about Twitter and the threat of Elon Musk to restore free speech protections to social media…How did the Democrats lose track of 20 BILLION dollars that they gave to Ukraine?
It’s not just Apple that’s in bed with Communist China. Big Business, Big Hollywood & Big Universities are in bed with Communist China.
I’m not old enough to remember when the left was anti-war, anti-government, anti-MSM and anti-Big Pharma but I’ve heard legends. What happened?They became pro enforcement of all things once they grasp the positions of power.

“‘Biden Team’ Requested Twitter Scrub Scandalous Hunter Biden Info Days before 2020 Election”
Story by Caroline Downey
2 December 2022
In an email dated October 24, just days before the 2020 presidential election, the Biden campaign reportedly demanded that Twitter scrub information critical of Hunter Biden from the site, according to a jaw dropping release of “The Twitter Files” by new CEO Elon Musk.
Twitter staff forwarded a request from the “Biden team” to remove five tweets in particular.
Three of the tweets, from since-suspended accounts, featured scandalous graphic images of the president’s son posing with his genitalia exposed, according to archives, which were leaked from the laptop that the New York Post first uncovered.
Hunter Biden abandoned the computer at a Delaware repair shop in April 2019.
It contained messages showing that then–vice president Joe Biden was introduced by his son to a top businessman at a Ukrainian energy firm “less than a year before the elder Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company,” the Post wrote in October 2020.
The correspondence contradicted Biden’s claim that he had “never spoken” to Hunter Biden “about his overseas business dealings.”
There was also great internal confusion and disorganization among Twitter management over the suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop bombshell back in October 2020.
Twitter staff and leadership were caught in what appeared to be a tug-of-war over formulating the public justification to remove the New York Post’s exposé of the contents of the laptop.
The decision to stifle access to the report, including by blocking the posting of URLs to it, was made by top leadership of the company but without the knowledge of former CEO Jack Dorsey, according to Taibbi.
Former head of legal, policy, and trust Vijaya Gadde was allegedly intimately involved.
“They just freelanced it,” a former Twitter employee reportedly told Taibbi of Twitter’s justification for censoring the scoop.
“Hacking was the excuse, but within a few hours, pretty much everyone realized that wasn’t going to hold.”
“But no one had the guts to reverse it.”
Chaos ensued at Twitter as the move to suppress the story came under intense scrutiny.
In an email addressed to Gadde and former trust and safety chief Yoel Roth, who led the team that suppressed the story, Trenton Kennedy, former U.S. policy communications manager at Twitter, expressed befuddlement over the company’s public communications characterizing the story as dangerous for viewers.
“I’m struggling to understand the policy basis for marking this unsafe, and I think the best explainability argument for this externally would be that we’re waiting to understand if this story is the result of hacked materials,” Kennedy wrote to senior staff.
“We’ll face hard questions on this if we don’t have some kind of solid reasoning for marking the link unsafe.”
An analyst from Twitter’s global escalations team confirmed that initially, the story was scrapped on the grounds that it violated the company’s “hacked materials” policy.
Twitter took dramatic measures to thwart circulation of the story, removing links and warning that it could be “unsafe.”
Musk had teased his 2020 document dump last week when he responded to a tweet by Alex Lorusso, an executive producer at Newsmax, asking him to publicize Twitter’s internal discussions surrounding the company’s decision to censor Hunter Biden’s laptop in the leadup to the 2020 presidential election.
“Raise your hand if you think @ElonMusk should make public all internal discussions about the decision to censor the @NYPost’s story on Hunter Biden’s laptop before the 2020 Election in the interest of Transparency,” Lorusso tweeted at the time.
Musk responded: “This is necessary to restore public trust.”
“The Pentagon lost track of another $2.1 trillion.”
It would be a mistake to say it’s just “missing.” It would be more accurate to say it has been successfully stolen, much like trillions have gone “missing” earlier. Many prefer to simply brush it off as “accounting errors” and not face the reality that we’re being robbed blind and there’s very little we can do about it.
Recall that SecDef Rumsfeld announced on 9/10 that $2.3 trillion had gone “missing.” Then 9/11 happened, we quickly forgot about that large sum and began throwing even more massive amounts of money at DOD as well as other federal agencies, much of which also went “missing” in the years that followed.
Now we’re pouring money, arms and munitions into Ukraine, notorious as the most corrupt nation in Europe and (surprise!) much of it quickly went “missing.” Arms and munitions starting turning up in Mideast countries and with Scandinavian criminal gangs, with only 30% actually reaching the intended recipients. Then we read that FTX collapsed, we learn that billions have gone “missing” and much of the money appears to have been kicked back to the same Democratic politicians who voted for the massive support to Ukraine.
Do you see a pattern here?
This is going to continue indefinitely until our glorious leaders on Capitol Hill collapse the country’s finances.

“Former top intel chiefs silent after Musk Twitter disclosures”
Story by Jon Levine
3 December 2022
America’s top former intelligence officials were silent Saturday after the release of internal Twitter documents detailing how The Post’s bombshell revelations were censored by the social media company.
Leon Panetta, a former CIA director and defense secretary, John Brennan a former CIA director, Mike Hayden, a former CIA director, and Jim Clapper, a former director of national intelligence — who all once said The Post’s reporting had “all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation,” — declined or did not respond to request for comment about whether the latest disclosures had changed their opinion.
A public statement was made in regard to the Hunter Biden emails.
The quartet made their allegations as part of an open letter denigrating The Post’s reporting as Russian misinformation which was signed by dozens of other longtime intelligence hands.
“Our experience makes us deeply suspicious that the Russian government played a significant role in this case,” the letter read.
“If we are right, this is Russia trying to influence how Americans vote in this election, and we believe strongly that Americans need to be aware of this.”
As it turned out, it was really Joe Biden who was trying to influence how Americans voted in that election, and while I believe strongly that Americans needed to be aware of that, the fact is, we weren’t made aware at all, becau7se of a WHITEWASH to protect Joe Biden, the illegitimate president of the United States of America!

And OMG, yes, indeed, the mysterious Paul Pelosi story is getting even more mysterious, and frankly, quite weird, or more weird than it was before this, which was already pretty weird, which increasing or escalating weirdness is to be expected now that Joe Biden has his DOJ involved in the matter.
First off, of course, is the question of what on earth happened to Miguel Almaguer, and where was Hillary Clinton on the day he disappeared as we see in the Fox News story “Miguel Almaguer remains absent from NBC since stunning Paul Pelosi attack report was mysteriously retracted” by Brian Flood on 28 November 2022, to wit:
NBC News correspondent Miguel Almaguer still has not appeared on air since his Nov. 4 report was retracted without explanation after it suggested Paul Pelosi may not have been in immediate danger when police arrived the night he was assaulted in the San Francisco home he shares with his wife, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
So there we are presented with two mysteries, at least, one being was Paul Pelosi really ever in danger, and then what happened to Miguel Almaguer and why?
And here is where things really start to get very murky indeed, as we see by going back to Fox, as follows:
Almaguer, a Los Angeles-based correspondent, is typically a fixture on NBC’s “Today” and “NBC Nightly News,” but was reportedly suspended when his stunning report was mysteriously retracted without explanation.
Almaguer reported Paul Pelosi opened the door himself but didn’t attempt to escape or declare an emergency before walking away from cops and back toward alleged the attacker.
Almaguer also put a spotlight on what Pelosi and DePape were doing for roughly 30 minutes before police arrived, which nobody seems to know.
This actually has the makings of a blockbuster HBO docudrama by Nancy’s daughter, Alexandra Pelosi, who is an award-winning documentarian, so with this script in hand, she should be able to do a real bang-up job of it, as she delves into what really did take place in the Pelosi resident for that half and hour when Paul Pelosi and David DePape were alone.
A lot of drama there as I am seeing it, and drama is always important in a docudrama, especially this one, which takes us to a Washington Examiner article titled “Will there be any media introspection over the Paul Pelosi story?” by Zachary Faria on 30 November 2022, where we will be presented with the existential question of who was the third person in there with Paul and David, or was there even a third person, to wit:
It has been over a month since the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was attacked, spawning establishment media outrage over right-wing rhetoric, yet it still isn’t clear exactly what happened.
If anything, establishment media have been making it harder to understand what happened.
According to Fox News media reporter Brian Flood, NBC News correspondent Miguel Almaguer has not appeared on the network since covering the story on Nov. 4.
Almaguer has since vanished from the network’s airwaves, and he hasn’t tweeted since Nov. 3.
For all their concerns about “misinformation” and conspiracy theories, establishment media do a good job of spreading both.
Politico, for example, reported that an “unknown person” had opened the door to Pelosi’s residence for the officers, only for the New York Times to turn around and declare that conservatives were spreading misinformation about an unknown person opening the door for officers.
If anyone is fueling conspiracy theories about this story, it is establishment media outlets such as Politico and NBC News.
And there is where matters stand right at this moment, but stay tuned, because this story has legs and can turn on a dime at any minute as new details pour in on who the third person was and what they were all doing for that unexplained half an hour that for some reason Joe Biden’s DOJ is keeping mum about.

And as to the weirdness and downright creepiness that pervades the Biden administration from top to b0ttom, starting with Joe himself, and this following weirdness is independent of Joe’s gender fluid/species fluid drag queen non-binary nuclear waste guru who likes “pup play” and eating food off a bound sexual partner while watching Star Trek, and who is now in a spot of trouble for stealing a woman’s suitcase which he said had his clothes in it, we have this very bizarre colloquy from Joe’s Minister of Political Propaganda Karine Jean-Pierre in the New York Post story “Release of Twitter files on how Hunter Biden story was censored ‘not healthy’: White House” by Steven Nelson on 5 December 2022, to wit:
WASHINGTON — White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Monday it was “not healthy” for Twitter owner Elon Musk to publish internal company files revealing Twitter’s censorship of The Post’s 2020 reporting on Hunter Biden’s laptop.
“What is happening — it’s frankly, it’s not healthy.”
“It won’t do anything to help a single American improve their lives.”
In Joe Biden’s DEMOCRAT DEMOCRACY, people, which is a sacred democracy unlike any other democracy in the world that is not Joe Biden’s sacred democracy, speaking TRUTH TO POWER is indeed very unhealthy for whomever us foolish enough to dare to speak that truth, in this case, Elon Musk, which takes us back to0 KJP completely flipping out on behalf of Joe Biden, who thought he had the Hunter Biden story buried deep, to wit:
“And so look, we see this as an interesting, you know, coincidence, and you know, it’s a distraction,” Jean-Pierre concluded during her Monday briefing, offering a lengthy denunciation of Musk’s Friday reveal of how Twitter execs decided to suppress The Post’s damning expose.
“We see this as an interesting, or a coincidence, if I may, that he would so haphazardly — Twitter would so haphazardly push this distraction that is full of old news, if you think about it,” Jean-Pierre said, brushing off the politically motivated denial of free speech protections raised by Musk’s document dump.
TRANSLATION: Thye American people cannot handle the truth and so, according to Joe Biden, Elon Musk made a grave mistake in feeding the American people the truth, when the truth he fed them was not the truth that Joe Biden wanted uncovered, which again takes us back to KJP’s bizarre rant, to wit:
“And at the same time, Twitter is facing very real and very serious questions about the rising volume of anger, hate and anti-Semitism on their platform and how they’re letting it happen.”
The voice of the Biden administration did not note that the Musk-led Twitter booted rapper Kanye West last week for tweeting a swastika after making a series of antisemitic remarks — or that as of Monday, the nation’s most famous Jew-basher’s 18.4-million-follower account on Facebook-owned Instagram remains active.
And here is where the bizarre rant of KJP becomes even more hysterical in nature, to wit:
Jean-Pierre’s denunciation of Musk’s moves toward transparency came in response to questions from Fox News correspondent Jacqui Heinrich.
“On Twitter, because you guys said you’re keeping a close eye on Elon Musk’s ownership and this is the first time we’ve talked to you since he released the files a few days ago — is it the White House view that decisions at Twitter were made appropriately in terms of decisions to censor this reporting ahead of the election?” Heinrich asked.
Jean-Pierre scolded Heinrich, “You mischaracterize actually what I actually said and took it out of context when you asked your question.”
“Look, when I answered the question and I already actually already addressed this about how the White House and the administration is seeing what’s happening on Twitter,” Jean-Pierre fumed.
“We follow also what’s going on, just like you guys are reporting it, just like you guys are seeing.”
“And what I was commenting to is like yes, we’re we’re seeing what is happening, just like you all are seeing what’s happening with Twitter.”
“So just want to clear that up because you definitely mischaracterized what I said or put it out of context.”
“And so can you ask your question again?”
Heinrich proceeded, “My question was that you had said I think six or so days ago to the White House was watching closely the situation at Twitter after Elon Musk’s ownership of it with respect to misinformation.”
“And because these files were released on the basis of ‘hacked materials’ clause at Twitter where decisions were made to censor reporting leading up to the election.”
“My question was, is it the White House view that these decisions were made appropriately in light of what has come out?”
“By whom?” Jean-Pierre asked before giving her Musk-bashing remarks.
“By Twitter,” Heinrich reminded the press secretary.
Jean-Pierre said Wednesday that Biden administration officials are “paying attention” to “reporting” about alleged misinformation circulating on Twitter under Musk’s pro-free speech reforms after the billionaire vowed to rescind pro-Democratic bias in moderation decisions.
Last Monday, she said that authorities are “keeping an eye on” Musk’s ownership.
Twitter banned users from sharing links to The Post’s reporting weeks before the 2020 election on documents that described Joe Biden’s involvement in his son Hunter and brother James Biden’s business relationships in Ukraine and China.
Twitter also locked The Post out of its primary account.
Twitter justified its censorship of The Post by citing its “hacked materials” policy — despite there being no evidence the material was hacked.
The Post’s reports transparently described that the laptop was abandoned by Hunter Biden at a Delaware repair shop and neither the Biden campaign or Hunter Biden directly denied that the laptop was authentic.
Last month, Biden called for federal investigations of Musk’s acquisition of Twitter on national security grounds because of a long-held minority ownership stake by a Saudi prince.
“I think that Elon Musk’s cooperation and/or technical relationships with other countries is worthy of being looked at,” Biden said.
“Whether or not he is doing anything inappropriate, I’m not suggesting that.”
“I’m suggesting that it’s worth being looked at.”
“How?” a journalist followed up.
“There’s a lot of ways,” Biden said.

“Biden approval, views of economy steady, sour: AP-NORC poll”
Story by Hannah Fingerhut, Associated Press
8 December 2022
Only about a quarter say the nation is headed in the right direction or the economy is in good condition.
Mishana Conlee said she tries to be optimistic about the coming year, but she thinks things are going to the gutter because “our president is incompetent” and not mentally fit for the White House.
The 44-year-old in South Bend, Indiana, said she’s frustrated about rising expenses when she’s living paycheck to paycheck as a dietary aide at a nursing home.
“The more I work, I just can’t get ahead,” Conlee said.
“That’s just all there is to it.”
As in recent months, the new poll shows only a quarter of U.S. adults say economic conditions are good, while three-quarters call them bad.
Nine in 10 Republicans, along with about 6 in 10 Democrats, say the economy is in bad shape.
Ratings of the economy have soured amid record-high inflation, even as Biden touts falling gas prices and a low unemployment rate at 3.7%.
