Trial testimony reveals Hillary Clinton personally approved serious election misinformation. Is there an anti-Trump exception to content moderation?
It is dangerous to be right in matters where established men are wrong. - Voltaire
This is a wonderful concise record of what went down. It really does make you wonder about our government and the media. I remember thinking during Russia gate when will the madness stop. It did stop and then we got Covid madness and now we have Ukrainian madness where our government is using Ukrainian citizens as cannon fodder. Thank you for fighting the good fight. Keep up the good work￼
The damage done is incalculable and yet none are held accountable. They're already reporting Sussman's lawyers are saying, "So what?" Doesn't matter that he lied. After all Hillary and all the ABC government officials have lied repeatedly under oath before congress.
Without accountability civilization is lost.
I always found the "election was stolen" by Trump supporters childish and petulant, except that in a sense, they were right. The voting may have been "clean" by the established rules, but there's more than one way to steal an election that doesn't involve voting. What the Democrats and their allies in the FBI and media did is a different kind of election theft. They broke laws and abused government powers to delegitimize an opponent, spent years investigating him on nothing more than fiction, and awarded themselves prizes for journalism in the process.
The failure of the Democrats and the progressive institutional media to recognize that the loss of confidence by the conservative half in the voting process has less to do with wild theories of mysterious ballots and broken pipes on election night, but far more to do with that they clearly rigged the laws and abused government powers to take down a sitting president. After all, the same people who'd easily break laws and commit grave corruption are certainly people who'd have no problems with faking ballots because it'd be in the name of good. I don't think they necessarily did the latter, but they definitely did the former, and therein lies the problem and the massive lost of confidence by large numbers of Americans in the electoral system. And it automatically corrupts future elections too as long as nothing happens and the guilty parties simply walk away intact.
Most of the American public doesn’t have the necessary attention span to absorb/process this information. Moreover the cognitive dissonance that articles such as this generate in liberal circles guarantee that easily 50% of those that are capable of comprehending it will ignore the evidence out of hand. This story (possibly the most important of the last 50 years) will be relegated to the dustbin of time due in large part to the myopia created by the most pernicious mental disorder ever suffered by the entire US population created by the Clinton’s.
In a country with a functioning media system,
Nearly all of our media is nothing more than a DNC infomercial
Remembering Matt doesn't like Trump, it proves his journalistic integrity. Us 'conspiracy theorists' knew this was BS within weeks of it hitting the newswaves. Our spidey senses have grown sharp in the era of corruption.
Not only should she be banned, but she should have to pay for damages too (the entire Clinton Foundation resources). If we can sanction other countries foreign held assets in US banks, then we can seize all of the Clinton assets for this massive covert intelligence fuck up.
In fact, I seem to remember Rumsfeld saying in a speech the day before 9/11, that the US Defense department "cannot track" $2.3 Trillion in transactions. They lost the public's money and trust --- lets put the charges to the Clinton's, they owe the public after selling them out for the last 30 years.
Anyone remember when the FBI was cleared of "partisan bias" in the FISA warrant?
FBI: "There was nothing unusual about this. We abuse it against normal people all the time too."
Media and Congress: "Checks out to us! Moving on to the next item."
Me: "Um, wait... could we go back to that for just a second? It sounded rather important."
The release of the Horowitz report coincides with the day that I realized that the deep state is not a myth. Hillary Clinton, as the presumptive Commander in Chief, was able to manipulate the levers of power against her political adversary using fraudulent evidence to provoke an official investigation.
They fabricated even more evidence that the FBI lied about in order to obtain a secret FISA warrant to spy on the Trump campaign and later, the administration. They repeatedly used former, and now current, government operatives to then lie about it for years. That resulted in not one, but two impeachment hearings that have further deteriorated public trust in our institutions.
The years long campaign has also allowed them to capture technocratic fascist control over every major media platform on the planet. They are now able to police speech all because they have been screaming about disinformation from the rooftops all while they peddle state-sanctioned disinformation.
They have done more collective harm to Americans faith in elections than Russia could ever hope for. And out of spite for crimes that were completely made up, they are now using Ukrainians as cannon fodder to try to destabilize an enemy. I just don't see how Watergate even comes close to that. I really don't.
So when Ds and libmedia complain of vast right-wing conspiracies and Russia's disinformation campaigns, they are projecting, in the Jungian sense.
Hmmm. Russiagate ended and COVID began, COVID petered away and Ukraine began... All three will be shown to be absolute govt s**t-shows in due time.
The hypocrisy of the media is so widespread that discussing it is banal.
The problem for the left's Ministry of Truth is that nobody on the right is even engaging with the left's media apparatus. So they can spin the stories however they want, but they are only preaching to the choir.
I sometimes go on to leftist message boards, and 90% of their outrage du jour is something I haven't even heard about. We are truly silo-ed at this point.
Some day I can hope to live in a society where the rules are applied fairly to everyone, even if they are rich and/or powerful.
Does anyone know of one?
