Ticker: What we learned from ‘the Twitter files’

Thanks to ‘the Twitter files’ revealed on Friday night, we know the First Amendment has been violated more profoundly than at any time in our lives.

Tucker looks at the ‘legacy media’s’ response to ‘the Twitter files’ released last Friday. Expectedly, they’re not pleased. Highlights include:

“The main thing that we learned on Friday night, last Friday night, with the release of those previously undisclosed documents from Twitter is not that social media companies censor conservatives, obviously we knew that. No one’s surprised to have it confirmed, no one denied it in the first place. No, what we learned on Friday is that big tech works aggressively and in secret with government agencies to subvert the outcome of what the rest of us assumed were free and fair elections. During the 2020 election, Twitter did this with the help of the FBI, committing censorship on behalf of one candidate while working to hurt the other candidate.”

“It is hard to imagine a more brazen attack on our democracy than this. This is not how our system is supposed to work. In fact, it’s illegal. What Twitter did is a violation of the First Amendment, as well as of established campaign finance law. They never declared those contributions to the Biden campaign, that’s a crime.”

“Thanks to ‘the Twitter files’ revealed on Friday night, we know the First Amendment has been violated more profoundly than at any time in our lives. Miranda Devine of the New York Post has just reported the FBI met ‘weekly with Twitter executives in the months before the 2020 election’ and in those meetings the FBI specifically warned about ‘hack and leak’ operations by ‘state actors’ that would involve Hunter Biden and would ‘likely come out in October’. We know that because it appeared in a sworn deposition from Twitter’s former chief censor.”

“It wasn’t just Twitter, by the way. The FBI was holding similar meetings with Facebook.”

“So, this is a ‘stop the presses’ story. The FBI is the largest and most powerful domestic law enforcement agency in the world. It can’t become a secret police force. If it does, this is no longer a free country and it’s no better than, say, Russia under Putin, or any authoritarian state. It is an authoritarian state by definition if the largest domestic law enforcement agency starts to play in domestic politics.”

“The distinction between ‘misinformation’ and lying is that misinformation can be true. It doesn’t have to be untrue to be censored. So, used to be, truth is a defense, if you’re telling the truth you can say it. Not anymore. With ‘mis’ and ‘disinformation’, if I don’t like it if I’m in power, I can censor you.”

“This is a violation of the First Amendment to the Bill of Rights, to the centerpiece of our Constitution, and it’s happening constantly. States reported posts they didn’t like, and CISA, an arm of DHS, guys with guns, got Twitter to censor it. Kentucky’s Secretary of State did this all the time. The documents show that. So did Colorado’s. In fact, Colorado reported several political parody accounts to DHS, which then alerted Twitter, and all of them were pulled off.”

“This isn’t just offensive. This is illegal. This is a crime, a very serious crime, a crime against our democracy, not trespassing in the Capitol or gazing upon Nancy Pelosi’s desk. Influencing the outcome of elections, it’s beyond belief, it’s also very common, much more common than anyone thought.”

The only people who liked Jeffrey Epstein were his friends, and some of them are clearly happy he’s dead

You don’t want to live in a country where it’s possible to murder people in federal lockup, cover up the killings and then get away with them.

Tucker recounts the strange circumstances surrounding Jeffrey Epstein’s death and investigation surround it. Why has it gone nowhere after 3 years, and why don’t the answers we have add up? Highlights include:

“On Saturday morning, August 10, 2019, William Barr was working in his home office when his chief of staff called to say that Jeffrey Epstein had just been found dead in his cell in New York City.”

“Barr was shocked and upset to hear this. His first reaction, as he recounts in his memoir, was to worry that some people in America might not buy the idea that Jeffrey Epstein had killed himself. ‘No one’s going to believe it was a suicide,’ Barr fretted to his chief of staff, ‘There will be conspiracy theories all over the place.'”

“Now, that’s a pretty odd response, if you think about it. At that time, there was no way that Bill Barr could have known for sure how Jeffrey Epstein had died. So, you would think, as the Attorney General, his first concern would be finding out what actually happened. But, instead, his first concern was worry that the public might jump to unapproved conclusions about what happened. And, in some ways, Bill Barr was right to worry. Many Americans did not believe that Jeffrey Epstein had killed himself, given the strange circumstances of his death.”

“You don’t want to live in a country where it’s possible to murder people in federal lockup, cover up the killings and then get away with them. That’s scary. That should not be allowed in this or any other civilized place. But in the case of Jeffrey Epstein, it appears that it was allowed, and on one level you can see why it was. This is one of those crimes that has no natural constituency pushing to solve it.”

“The only people who liked Jeffrey Epstein were his friends, and some of them are clearly happy he’s dead.”

“Why do so many public officials persist in claiming that Jeffrey Epstein attempted suicide in prison once before, on July 23, 2019? Now, that’s a very convenient claim if you’re trying to convince people that Jeffrey Epstein killed himself, but there’s no evidence that it’s true. In fact, Jeffrey Epstein himself adamantly denied ever trying to kill himself, in prison or out. He denied this to his friends, to his lawyers, and to prison psychologists. He said, instead, that he was injured by another inmate.”

“Who moved Jeffery Epstein’s body, and who gave the order to do that? Epstein was discovered the morning of August 10 by a part time prison guard called Michael Thomas, who amazingly was the very same guard who discovered him in fetal position on the floor after his previous falsely reported suicide attempt.”

“But by the time the EMTs arrived, Epstein’s body had been moved to the prison infirmary, that’s a clear violation of federal policy — who ordered that? And though Jeffrey Epstein had been dead for at least two hours when the guard found him in his cell, by the time the EMTs arrived, Epstein was clad in a hospital gown.”

“That means that somebody, for some reason, cut away Jeffrey Epstein’s prison uniform and redressed his stiffening corpse in new clothes – Why would anyone do that? And then to make it even stranger, Jeffrey Epstein’s corpse was intubated. Air was blown into his lifeless lungs. It’s not clear why.”

Antifa is back in force

What you have here is the official endorsement of domestic terrorism from the highest level of the Democratic party. And why wouldn’t you? This is their militia.

Published

They’re baaaaaack … as if they’d gone anywhere. Tucker looks at Antifa’s latest actions, and guessing by who’s defending them, who’s benefiting. Highlights include:

“Antifa is the armed instrument of the permanent ‘Democratic’ establishment in Washington. Their job is to mobilize when politically necessary. Now, this is a new thing in the United States, but political militia are a common feature in third world politics, they’re a staple in Haiti. In our country, however, only one party has them, the Democratic party. They’re the only ones with armed militia in the streets. So, with that in mind, it’s interesting to note that ‘Antifa’ is back in force, and that’s probably not a very good sign for Joe Biden. If nothing else, ‘antifa’ has a solid track record of getting rid of sitting presidents.”

“It’s always the same script. Remember when Ali Velshi stood in front of a burning police station in Minneapolis and told you that protests were ‘not generally speaking unruly’, except for, of course, the torched police station right behind us, or when CNN told us the ‘protests’ … the fiery riots in Kenosha were fiery but mostly peaceful. Meanwhile, people were being killed. They’re still saying it, but this time they’re even lazier and more corrupt. That ‘freelance reporter’ David Pisner you just saw on CNN is not actually a reporter, he’s a professional Antifa apologist.”

“Why this particular brand of dishonesty? Why are the same people who warned you about ‘right-wing extremists walking around the Capitol’ running cover for domestic terrorism in the city they’re based in? Keep in mind, this is CNN saying this, and it was CNN whose world headquarters, CNN Center in Atlanta, was destroyed by antifa in May of 2020 after St. George Floyd died. Remember that?”

“CNN is not actually on the left. They have no ideology or beliefs. CNN is above all and always foursquare on the side of the people in charge, always, that’s who they run cover for. So, they’re not actually defending antifa, they’re defending the people who benefit from antifa, and that’s the Democratic party.”

“What you have in effect here is the official endorsement of domestic terrorism from the highest level of the Democratic party, and why wouldn’t you? Again, this is their militia. These are their state sanctioned shock troops, and they are effectively immune from criticism. So, you go to jail for owning a 10-round magazine, but they get to do whatever they want.”
