White House colluded with Twitter to censor RFK, Jr., emails reveal

twitter whitehouse
A series of Jan. 6 tweets by newly sworn-in Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey detailed how Biden officials sought to censor tweets by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., chairman and chief litigation counsel of Children's Health Defense (CHD), conservative commentator Tucker Carlson and others.

Citing documents and emails between social media employees and White House officials, Bailey exposed how the White House sought to censor Kennedy for a tweet questioning "suspicious" deaths of elderly individuals after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine and seeking a good faith investigation into the true causes of the deaths.

The White House specifically targeted Kennedy's Jan. 22, 2021, tweet about the then-recent death of baseball Hall of Famer Hank Aaron, 18 days after he publicly received the Moderna vaccine.

Is Biden Being Blackmailed to Send US Combat Troops to Ukraine?

Biden
Billionaire elites are using their power over the media, the political class and public opinion to coerce Joe Biden into sending US troops to Ukraine to prevent a Russian victory. Idiot conservatives think the media is actually doing their job for once by accurately reporting Biden's alleged transgressions. But, the fact is, the media is simply showing that it can switch sides at any time in order to pursue the elitist agenda.

No one should be surprised that Joe Biden's 'classified documents problem' has emerged at the same time a key city in Ukraine (Soledar) has been liberated by Russian troops.
All of the recent reports from the frontlines indicate that the Russian army is steadily seizing more territory in the eastern part of the country while inflicting heavy casualties on the over-matched Ukrainian forces. In short, the Ukrainian army is being beaten badly forcing US war planners to rethink their approach. What the US needs to do to prevail in its proxy-war with Russia, is to enlist a coalition of nations (US, Poland, Romania, and UK) that are willing to commit combat troops to the conflict with the tacit understanding that NATO will not directly participate in any ground war with Russia. Biden previously rejected the idea of sending troops to Ukraine acknowledging that it would be tantamount to launching a Third World War. But as the 'classified documents' scandal gains momentum, the malleable president will likely fall-in-line and do whatever the hawkish foreign policy establishment demands of him. In short, the documents flap is being used by behind-the-scenes powerbrokers who are blackmailing the president to pursue their own narrow interests. They have Brandon over-a-barrel.

Integrity Lost

angels
"For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?" Mark 8:36
"I am sure that in estimating every man's value either in private or public life, a pure integrity is the quality we take first into calculation, and that learning and talents are only the second."

Thomas Jefferson: A Chronology of His Thoughts - Thomas Jefferson, Jerry Holmes (2002)
Integrity. One of the three key guideposts along the road out of COVID-crisis hell; integrity, dignity, community.

Integrity is a curious word. Triple meanings which buttress one to the other.
  1. Steadfast adherence to a strict moral or ethical code.
  2. The state of being unimpaired; soundness.
  3. The quality or condition of being whole or undivided; completeness.
The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition.

Human beings can be characterized by exhibiting integrity or it's opposites, hypocrisy and deceit. Buildings can have structural integrity, or they can be unsound, a danger to inhabitants. Organizations can have integrity, or can be corrupt. And a Nation can have integrity, or be divided against itself.

Italy urges EU to push back against US - media

Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni has called for the European Union to become more economically independent in the wake of a new US law that puts the bloc's manufacturers at a competitive disadvantage, Bloomberg reported on Thursday.

Speaking at her year-end press briefing in Rome, Meloni urged the EU to build its own supply chains for key industries in response to the US Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), a $360 billion spending bill that President Joe Biden signed into law in August, according to the media outlet. The bloc also must revise its rules on state aid to manufacturers and strengthen oversight of supply chains for such industries as computer chips, carmakers and alternative energy, Meloni reportedly said.

The US legislation provided for a spending binge on alternative energy infrastructure, including tax breaks for manufacturers in the sector. It weighted subsidies for electric vehicles to domestically produced models and batteries. EU leaders, including French President Emmanuel Macron, have criticized the law, warning that it may "fragment the West."

NewsReal: What's Biden Been Hidin'? Classified Documents!

biden documents brazil insurrection horns newsreal
© Sott.net
We know, right - shocking, scandalous!

Except, it isn't. Which senior official in DC does not have classified documents in their home?!

And yet, the US govt and media last week made a big stink about it, to the point that AG Merrick Garland has announced a Special Counsel to 'investigate Biden's wrong-doing'. Clearly, this is a contrived message to pressure Biden, possibly to ward him off re-running in 2024.

In the meantime, MAGA Republicans are achieving with astonishing rapidity all they wished for (and more!) when bargaining with Kevin McCarthy for him to become Speaker of the House. It's all going so smoothly for the Republicans, one begins to wonder whether they're being set up for a fall...

Also on this NewsReal, Joe and Niall explain why an eerily familiar 'J6-style Insurrection' took place in Brazil last week, resulting in ex-president Jair Bolsonaro being globally condemned for 'inspiring', if not outright organizing, a 'failed fascist coup'.

Elon Musk exposes Adam Schiff for mass scale collusion with Old Twitter™

Adam Schiff and Elon Musk

Adam Schiff and Elon Musk
On Friday, journalist Matt Taibbi dropped a Twitter Files supplemental to expose Democrat representative Adam Schiff once again for colluding with Twitter.

Since former President Donald Trump took office, Schiff has spent every day accusing the former president of colluding with Russia, however it now appears that the only person colluding all this time was Schiff himself.

In a previous Twitter Files drop, Schiff put pressure on Twitter to ban investigative journalist Paul Sperry. Twitter initially denied the request however later banned Sperry from the site.

Taibbi just followed up with a supplemental exposing Schiff of more wrongdoing.

How did most celebrities turn into death stars? Take Mark Hamill (and Noam Chomsky, too)

Celebrity could be the death of us, AND our democracy (or what little there is left of it)
Put up by a real human being in New York City
:
Hello Fellow Humans
Now, here (scroll down) is a very good example of the catastrophic monkey-see-monkey-do process whereby celebrities (through "our free press"/"social media") affirm the propaganda to the rest of us; although in this case it is NOT "vaccination" that the star is urging on the audience, but "liberal" hatred over "January 6."

This certainly is not to say that Hamill has been silent on the urgency of getting everybody "vaccinated":


Comment: Wait, what? Jan 6 committee has sealed all important VIDEOS and documents for 50 years

Again (MCM):
Now, here (scroll down) is a very good example of the catastrophic monkey-see-monkey-do process whereby celebrities (through "our free press"/"social media") affirm the propaganda to the rest of us; although in this case it is NOT "vaccination" that the star is urging on the audience, but "liberal" hatred over "January 6."
Note how easily some (forget celebrities and add in the population base) will move to conformity if looked at through the Asch study.

Even if seen with their very own eyes that it is a lie, some people will rally around a lie if they believe or fear it might be true and others conform with them.

The propogandists take it to the bank:

Russian Presidential First Deputy in Military-Industrial Commission and Russian Security Council Deputy Chairman Dmitry Medvedev
Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida acted as a US' attendant and betrayed the memory of hundreds of thousands of victims of the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Russian Security Council Deputy Chairman Dmitry Medvedev said Saturday.

Medvedev called the joint statement made by Kishida and US President Joe Biden that any potential use of nuclear weapons by Russia in Ukraine will be an irredeemable hostile act against humanity a "horrible shame." Medvedev underscored that he will not "even comment on the paranoia regarding our state's nuclear plans."

Last warning? 'We repeat: Western weapons & foreign military personnel servicing them are legitimate targets for Russia' - Zakharova

HIMARS fires at Russian targets in Zaporizhzhia Oblast
The Russian Foreign Ministry's spokeswoman Maria Zakharova described on Thursday the new weapons Ukraine received from the West as a legitimate target for her country's troops.

"If the West pretends not to know about this, this is their problem," she told reporters at a press conference. Zakharova also once again criticized Kiev's decision to strip several priests seen as pro-Russian of their Ukrainian citizenships, saying that "human rights continue to be grossly violated."

Previously, the Russian Foreign Ministry warned the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) it is "playing with fire" by sending weapons to Ukraine. Meanwhile, the Kremlin noted such moves do not contribute to Moscow and Kiev's attempts to start negotiating.

Comment: The Russian Embassy tweeted Zakharova's comments in more detail:

Is this perhaps a last warning to the West? Because Russia's recent win in Soledar, its wave of strikes on Ukraine's energy infrastructure that has much of the country suffering enforced blackouts, NATO's meeting in Ramstein, in addition to tens of thousands of Russia's troops now being ready to be deployed, all bode that a significant move by Russia is on the cards.
