Shutting Women Up: Emails Between White House and Big Tech Focus on Social Media Warnings of mRNA Vaccination Damage to Menstruation. Did WH Censor Harms to Women? By Dr. Naomi Wolf

Not a good idea to try and shut Dr. Naomi Wolf up. From Wolf at naomiwolf.substack.com:

My Accurate Tweet Warning of Menstrual Damage post-mRNA Vaccination Appears in Lawsuit’s Discovery.

“NEW EVIDENCE UNCOVERED IN A LAWSUIT’S DISCOVERY SUGGESTS THE WHITE HOUSE ORDERED THE TARGETING-DEPLATFORMING-CENSORING OF DR. NAOMI WOLF

 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – SEPTEMBER 9TH, 2022

THE MINISTRY OF TRUTH STRIKES AGAIN – THEY CAN RUN FOR COVER – BUT THEY CANNOT HIDE FROM MISSOURI ATTORNEY GENERAL ERIC SCHMITT  or DR. NAOMI WOLF

Dr. Naomi Wolf is a Best-Selling Author and The CEO of Daily Clout

BACKGROUND:

‘On MAY 5TH 2022 Plaintiffs (Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt on behalf of State of Missouri ET AL) filed a complaint [Doc. No. 1] against Government Defendants. In the Complaint and Amended Complaint [Doc. No. 45], Plaintiffs allege Government Defendants have colluded with and/or coerced social media companies to suppress disfavored speakers, viewpoints, and content on social media platforms ‘disinformation’, ‘misinformation’ and ‘malinformation. Plaintiffs allege the suppression of disfavored speakers, viewpoints, and contents constitutes government action and violates Plaintiffs’ freedom of speech in violation of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.’

STATEMENT FROM DR. WOLF:

“Today my lawyers submitted a new court filing (see below) with additional documents that show how the executive branch of our federal government worked with Twitter to silence me for asking questions about the Covid-19 vaccines. These documents also appear to show that the censorship project between Twitter and the executive branch began inside the White House. Nobody should be retaliated against for exercising her First Amendment rights. Thank you to Missouri AG Eric Schmitt and Louisiana AG Jeff Landry for working to obtain these documents. I will continue fighting to protect my rights and the rights of all Americans to speak their minds and ask tough questions.”

Twitter, Facebook Regularly Coordinated With Biden Admin To Censor Users, by Tyler Durden

How much do ostensibly private companies have to be in bed with the government before they’re covered by the First Amendment? From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

Newly released internal emails from Facebook and Twitter show an extensive effort to coordinate with the Biden administration to censor users, according to a Thursday release of information by GOP Attorneys General Eric Schmitt of Missouri and Jeff Landry of Louisiana.

Throughout the emails, officials within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Health and Human Services (HHS) emailed Facebook and Twitter employees with instructions on flagging instances of alleged misinformation, and guided them with talking points to counter allegedly false narratives on the platforms.

In one instance, a CDC official asked Facebook for monthly meetings to plan “debunking” strategies, while in another case a White House official requested the removal of an Anthony Fauci parody account.

“We have already received a number of documents that clearly prove that the federal government has an incestuous relationship with social media companies and clearly coordinate to censor freedom of speech, but we’re not done,” said Schmitt in a joint statement. ” The Department of Justice is cowering behind executive privilege and has refused to turn over communications between the highest-ranking Biden Administration officials and social media companies. That’s why, yesterday, we asked the Court to compel the Department of Justice to produce those records. We’re just getting started – stay tuned.”

Israeli COVID Vaccine Director Who was Physically Injured by Pfizer Vaccine — Is Locked Out of Twitter After Suggesting Link Between Monkeypox Outbreak and mRNA Vaccines, by Jim Hoft

It’s going to be an endless loop. Vaccines will impair immune systems which will lead to outbreaks of new diseases for which new vaccines will be invented which will further impair immune systems which will lead to more outbreaks of new diseases. From Jim Hoft at 2ndsmartestguyintheworld.com:

Physician and Scientist Prof. Shmuel Shapira MD has been the Director of the Israel Institute for Biological Research for 8 years from 2013 to 2021.  He recently claimed that mRNA vaccinations caused the monkeypox outbreak, as reported by Kanekoa Substack.

Prof. Shapira, who suffered from an adverse reaction following his third Pfizer vaccine, was suspended by Twitter last week and was compelled to remove a tweet where he linked the monkeypox outbreak to the Covid vaccines.

“Monkeypox cases were rare for years. During the last years, a single case was documented in Israel. It is well established the mRNA vaccines affect the natural immune system. A monkey pox outbreak following massive covid vaccination: *Is not a coincidence,” Shapira wrote on his Twitter.

How Much Did the US Government Pressure Twitter to Ban Alex Berenson? By Ron Paul

If the US government pressured Twitter to ban Alex Berenson, a quite respectable journalist (he worked for the New York Times), it completely undercuts Twitter’s contention that it’s a private company. Its censoring policy is at the behest of the government and the company itself is an agent of the government. From Ron Paul at ronpaulinstitute.org:

Nearly a year ago, former New York Times Journalist Alex Berenson was permanently banned from Twitter for writing the following lines about the Covid shot: “It doesn’t stop infection. Or transmission. Don’t think of it as a vaccine. Think of it – at best – as a therapeutic with a limited window of efficacy and terrible side effect profile that must be dosed IN ADVANCE OF ILLNESS. And we want to mandate it? Insanity.”

From the beginning of the Covid hysteria, we followed and cited Berenson many times on the Ron Paul Liberty Report. Berenson took government and mainstream media rhetoric about the pandemic the way journalists used to take it: with a heavy dose of skepticism. And not long after he was banned for saying so, even the CDC Director admitted what he wrote is true.

But at the time, he was a danger to the government narrative on Covid, and the “private” social media company Twitter silenced him. They did not only silence one reporter who was a thorn in their side, however. They preemptively silenced anyone else who might might question the narrative. The message was clear to all the would-be Alex Berensons out there: do you want to follow him to the digital gulag?

So not only was Berenson’s free speech under attack – free speech itself was under attack.

Twitter Just Lost Its Last Chance To Remain Relevant, by Tyler Durden

The Twitter story has been extensively covered so SLL has ignored it. However, this is a unique and first-rate analysis of Twitter, Big Tech, and the implications of Elon Musk’s abandoned bid for the company. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

After months of drama, it would appear the fate of social media giant Twitter has been decided, and the result is an inevitable path to the internet graveyard.

Many people will question the notion that Twitter could ever actually bite the dust, but they are probably unfamiliar with the company’s dismal performance as of late.  The reality is, Elon Musk’s potential buyout was their last chance to stay afloat; now that Musk has exited the deal, they face a continued and steady decline into irrelevance like many other Big Tech companies before them.

While it’s possible that Musk’s decision is merely a play for a reduced sale price, it’s probably safe to assume there is not going to be a purchase anytime soon.  This sets a chain of events in motion that bode very poor for Twitter given their track record the past couple of years, but first let’s consider the current situation.

While the initial argument from Twitter execs will be that Musk “waived” his rights to change the original deal and thus he is required to buy regardless, his waiver does not extend to his rights to review Twitter’s claims about their user base.  The deal itself was predicated on Twitter giving honest assessments of the percentage of users that are actually bots (fake accounts).  Twitter initially claimed that bots only made up around 5% of users; it would appear that Musk has discovered this to be false, and this is the position his lawyers have asserted through the SEC.

Twitter and the Freedom of Speech, by Andrew P. Napolitano

When does a private company become an arm of the government, and therefore subject to the First Amendment’s restrictions on government? From Andrew P. Napolitano at lewrockwell.com:

“Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press.”
–First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

When James Madison authored the language that would become the First Amendment, he and his colleagues feared that the new federal government might enact legislation that would interfere with personal liberty. That fear was shared by many in the 13 states that had just ratified the Constitution. Indeed, five of the states conditioned their ratification on the addition of a Bill of Rights.

Madison — who had been the scrivener of the Constitution in 1787, was, by 1791, a member of the House of Representatives and the House’s resident expert on the Constitution — was designated by his colleagues as the drafter of the Bill of Rights.

Madison’s language in the First Amendment’s is clear; it only restrains Congress. Yet, recognizing the natural origins of the freedom of speech and aware of the universal governmental animosity to free speech, and taking account of the 14th Amendment’s imposition of due process upon the states, the courts expanded the scope of the First Amendment so as to impose its restraints upon all government — including the president, the judiciary, the states and their subdivisions.

During the Civil War and World War I, Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Woodrow Wilson incarcerated folks for their speech and argued that the First Amendment only restrained Congress, not the president. Today, such an argument would be dismissed out of hand in any court.

Elon’s Folly, by Good Citizen

Elon should just put Twitter out of its misery. From Good Citizen at thegoodcitizen.substack.com:

Instead of trying to save a dying Marxist bird, the richest man in the world should spend $44 Billion to take a flame thrower to the agenda of Global Tyrants.

Give me the dead Marxist bird for $44 Billion.

A Serious Man?
There has been much debate about Elon Musk’s stance on the Great Reset, UN Agendas, Technocracy, and Posthumanism, which I partly addressed in a previous post 40 days ago. He was listed as a 2008 World Economic Forum “Young Global Leader”. Almost every prominent figure in business or politics has been associated with this organization over the last thirty years, so it’s no guarantee of anything. Take Putin for example. He is likely no longer working for or with this international tyrannical order, no matter how many domestic Russian planemic policies align with the Rockefeller lock-step plan.

Musk is also the founder of a company that is researching and developing AI and brain implants, and presumably not just for those whose disabilities could be remedied with techno-assisted chips that reactivate defunct neuro-motor functions. This path is a slippery one, adored by post-humanist technocrats seeking to play God and merge the biological and technological. All of this and more must be taken into consideration of Musk’s motivations and positions on the Global tyranny agenda.

Shouldn’t Hillary Clinton Be Banned From Twitter Now? By Matt Taibbi

Russiagate has been a lie from day one and Clinton knew it. Yet, not a Russiagate or Hillary Clinton tweet has been banned from Twitter. From Matt Taibbi at taibbi.substack.com:

Trial testimony reveals Hillary Clinton personally approved serious election misinformation. Is there an anti-Trump exception to content moderation?

Last week, in the trial of former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann, prosecutor Andrew DeFilippis asked ex-campaign manager Robby Mook about the decision to share with a reporter a bogus story about Donald Trump and Russia’s Alfa Bank. Mook answered by giving up his onetime boss. “I discussed it with Hillary,” he said, describing his pitch to the candidate: “Hey, you know, we have this, and we want to share it with a reporter… She agreed to that.”

In a country with a functioning media system, this would have been a huge story. Obviously this isn’t Watergate, Hillary Clinton was never president, and Sussmann’s trial doesn’t equate to prosecutions of people like Chuck Colson or Gordon Liddy. But as we’ve slowly been learning for years, a massive fraud was perpetrated on the public with Russiagate, and Mook’s testimony added a substantial piece of the picture, implicating one of the country’s most prominent politicians in one of the more ambitious disinformation campaigns we’ve seen.

Elon Musk: Champion of Free Speech or Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing? By Ryan Matters

There’s not that much difference between what Elon Musk believes in and what Klaus Schwab believes in. From Ryan Matters at off-guardian.org:

Recently, the news broke that Elon Musk (now the world’s richest man) acquired Twitter. Musk claims that he’s a “free speech absolutist” and his takeover of the company was motivated by his passion for open discourse.

Musk called Twitter “the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated”. He feels that free speech is “the bedrock of a functioning democracy” and that’s why he just couldn’t bear to witness the tech platform engage in such brash censorship.

Sounds good, right?

After all, many of us have been voicing our concerns about the Orwellian rise in censorship over the last few years, and here’s a billionaire siding with us (for once).

In fact, mere days after Musk’s offer was accepted by Twitter’s board, previously banned accounts began to return to the platform.

It seems almost too good to be true…and maybe it is.

It’s Too Early to Celebrate Elon Musk’s Purchase of Twitter, by Robert Bridge

Let’s not forget that Elon is in pretty good with the Davos crowd. From Robert Bridge at strategic-culture.org:

While many of us celebrate the sale of Twitter, let’s never forget the adage, ‘if it appears too good to be true, it probably is.’

Everything that is wrong about our modern times became apparent this week as the entrepreneur Elon Musk bought out Twitter for $44 bln, triggering a global meltdown as liberals feared their favorite toy had been lost to rightwing forces forever. Unfortunately, the story is more complex than that.

Musk’s purchase of the San Francisco-based company was such a shock that Vijaya Gadde, chief of Twitter’s “trust and safety” department, reportedly broke down crying while discussing details of the deal with colleagues. Whether Gadde’s tears were tears of joy or tears of sorrow – Musk’s takeover was estimated to have boosted the stock value in the company by at least $20 per share – we may never know, but hitting the lottery has been known to induce euphoric reactions among the winners. Jack Dorsey, for example, Twitter’s co-founder, alone stands to earn $1bn in cash once the deal is inked.
