On the IRS visit, the letter from Stacey Plaskett, and other issues
You're a real canary in the coalmine Matt - now the public can only deny the intimidation tactics of the US corporation through willful ignorance. So happy at least you could get on The Hill and share your story. Hang in there.
Twitter Files are infinitely bigger scandal than Watergate.
Total silence of State media on Twitter Files is alarming and State Security and IRS are completely out of control.
PROTECT Matt Taibbi and free Julian Assange !!
How come they didn't keep interrupting you? Who are these people? Why are they allowed on teevee?
Great interview, Matt! I'm really glad The Hill featured you properly. Kudos to The Hill and to you.
Not used to calm, measured, open-ended interviews but this was actually enlightening and helpful. It reflected really well on both of them as well as you!
Stay safe and healthy, Matt.
State Security and Dept. of Justice are completely out of control.
With infinite gratitude your admirer and supporter for decades.
Pretty creepy that Stacey Plaskett-"Case," Mehdi Hasan, and the IRS all played a role in would-be intimidating Mr Taibbi. In the IRS case: Talk about the "Weaponization of Government!"
Lol, this was first on my feed.
It's so interesting that the euphemism game is so very shallow in America, and yet the majority of people are fooled, maybe willingly?
What is a public private partnership?
What is a non government organization that is funded by the government?
What is a regulatory body that's funded by the private sector?
What was the Latin root of Mussolini's fascista?
What economic ideas built every attempted totalitarian society in modernity?
I once was lost, but not due to willful ignorance. Just ignorance.
It's hard to have these conversations with true believers, but necessary as our technology has transformed our society into a myth craving monster....
Thanks, Matt. We're a nation run by criminals watched over by quislings.
The corruption is so bold and brazen! It's breathtaking.
The abuse of power floors me. I dont know why, after everything that has been exposed, this level of abuse and intimidation blows me away. I would love the transparent exposure of who flipped the switch for the IRS investigation, and who collaborated. Of course they are insulated to the teeth when it comes to this shit. No accountability is their strength
I think Rising is now (without Ryan Grim) a decent show. In my opinion, much better than Breaking Points with its MSM adjacent equivocation.
It does indicate that the festering sore in the IRS was more than just Lois Lerner. Lois took the heat for the deep state to survive. I wonder if the IRS agent who visited would have said "that's a nice form 1040, you got here, Mr. Taibbi. Sure be a shame if something happened to it."
At some point the intersection of the Censorship Industrial Complex and the 2024 election will require journalism's attention. The sooner the better. I was hoping the co-hosts would bring this up.
Keep up the Journalism keep pushing the buttons of the Elites that own our Government
Well done, Matt, you appeared a bit edgy in this interview but if I had been served an IRS notice on my front door, I would feel the same way. I have my own IRS story on being audited out of the blue. They can make your life miserable with a "guilty until proven innocent" approach but in my case, I did prevail.
