    “Harris’ new press secretary deleted over 10,000 tweets before taking job

    Twitter cleanup came after Harris’ former spokeswoman, Symone Sanders, left to join MSNBC”

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/harris-new-press-secretary-deleted-10000-tweets-before-taking-job

    ” Vice President Harris’ new press secretary appeared to nuke over 10,000 of her tweets during the hiring process for her new White House gig.

    On Wednesday, Fox News confirmed that Harris tapped Kirsten Allen, her former deputy national press secretary during the 2020 Democratic primary race and current national press secretary for coronavirus response at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), to be her new spokeswoman.

    Allen, amid the months-long vacancy for Harris’ chief spokesperson role, deleted more than half of her posts on Twitter between Jan. 2 and 10 of this year. According to Social Blade, a social media analytics tool, Allen had 17,880 tweets on Jan. 2, 2022, but then about a week later she only had 7,286 tweets, which means she deleted over 10,000 tweets.

    The deletion of the tweets came after Harris’ former spokeswoman, Symone Sanders, left the administration at the end of December 2021 and announced a week later she was joining MSNBC.

    While deleting tweets is sometimes a normal part of political job transitions in Washington, a person deleting over 10,000 tweets weeks before accepting a job in the vice president’s office raises questions about the content on her page before it was scrubbed.”

    “Why Hunter Biden’s laptop really matters

    The real scandal was the elites’ ruthless and authoritarian attempt to bury the laptop story.”

    https://www.spiked-online.com/2022/03/23/why-hunter-bidens-laptop-really-matters/

    “The real Hunter Biden laptop scandal is not the laptop itself. It isn’t the sordid contents of this computer that was dumbly handed in to a repair shop in Delaware. It isn’t the fact that the hard drive contains lewd images of Hunter and others doing drugs and having sex. It isn’t even the fact that the laptop contained a trove of emails showing that Hunter was not averse to namedropping daddy – who was then vice-president in the Obama administration – to secure sweet deals with foreign businesses. No, it’s the fact that America’s media elites studiously ignored the whole damn thing and even flat-out censored it. The scandal is the fact that the scandal was buried, on the grounds that nothing, not even the truth, could be allowed to scupper Joe Biden’s ascendancy to the White House.

    The laptop scandal is back in the news. And for quite extraordinary reasons. The New York Times, finally, 18 months after the laptop story first broke, following months and months of America’s liberal elites running the other away the minute anyone mentioned this cursed computer, has confirmed that the laptop is real. Buried a thousand words into a long report on federal authorities’ investigation into Hunter’s business antics, the Gray Lady casually mentions emails ‘obtained by the New York Times from a cache of files that appears to have come from a laptop abandoned by Mr Biden in a Delaware repair shop’. These emails, says the Times, are ‘authentic’. No shit, Sherlock.

    This is an about-face of epic proportions. This is the same NYT that cast doubts like confetti on the Hunter laptop story when it was first covered by the New York Post in October 2020. It turned a blind eye to this explosive story of a presidential candidate’s son leaving his incriminating computer in for repair. Or it just denounced the whole thing as a ‘ politically motivated dirty tricks campaign’. Yet now, quietly, and possibly with a hint of shame (if that’s an emotion the NYT even knows), America’s paper of record has fessed up that the whole thing was true. ‘They’re as slow as Joe! Sleepy New York Times FINALLY wakes up’, says the Mail. The Babylon Bee went one better. ‘New York Times announces they have finally confirmed the Watergate tapes are authentic’, its headline said.

    It really is worth reflecting on this scandal. No, not on Hunter’s bad behaviour (that can wait), but on the way the elites colluded to ensure that this scandal did not blow up. The reaction to the New York Post’s revelation of the laptop and its contents in October 2020 was astonishing, and chilling. Joe Biden and Donald Trump were fighting it out in the presidential election, and the broadsheet media, liberal broadcasters, political campaigners and billionaire overlords of the world wide web were not about to let a story about a laptop cast Joe in a bad light. So they squashed it. They even outlawed it. In an act of alarming anti-democratic intolerance – the seriousness of which many people have yet to grasp – the social-media oligarchs even prevented people from sharing the New York Post’s story.

    Twitter went so far as to lock users out of their accounts if they shared this piece of journalism that was clearly in the public interest. It locked the Twitter accounts of the actual White House press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, and the New York Post itself. Here we had the spokesperson for the democratically elected president of the United States and the oldest continuously published daily newspaper in America being cast out of social media for the crime of sharing a story that was true. This was surely the most egregious, arrogant interference in democratic politics and press freedom carried out by corporate elites in recent times. Facebook, meanwhile, said it would limit sharing of the Post piece until its fact-checkers had a chance to pore over it. This is the same Facebook that happily allowed users to share all manner of media nonsense about Trump being a Russian asset who got a sexual kick from watching prostitutes take a piss in a Moscow hotel in 2013.

    If Silicon Valley was autocratic in its response to the Post story, the traditional media were yellow-bellied. So fried were they by their hatred for Trump, by their determination to ensure that Bad Orange Man didn’t get a second term, that they abandoned every single principle of journalism in response to the laptop tale. CNN reporter Alexis Benveniste cockily declared that ‘the media world has largely ignored the Post’s Hunter Biden story’. Terence Samuel, managing editor for news at National Public Radio, was asked why NPR wasn’t covering it. ‘We don’t waste our time on stories that are not really stories’, he said. When more than 50 former intelligence officers wrote a letter suggesting the laptop story was Russian disinformation, the pliant media lapped it up. The laptop story has all ‘the hallmarks of a Russian disinformation campaign meant to influence the upcoming election’, said the Huffington Post.

    This was a truly extraordinary moment in the political life of the United States of America. A free-thinking daily newspaper published a fascinating report on the emails and behaviour of the then vice-president’s son and it found itself shamed, blocked and defamed for doing so. Californian oligarchs, former members of the American deep state and virtually the entire opinion-forming set of the East Coast clubbed together to denounce the Post, ban it from Twitter, and rubbish its reporting as the handiwork of evil Ruskies. Yet some of them now admit the story was actually true, a fact that has been clear since at least December 2020, when federal authorities started investigating Hunter. What took place following the Post’s breaking of the laptop story was a terrifying assault on media freedom, the right to dissent and truth itself.

    That’s the scandal here. Sure, the infamous laptop threw up some grim and worrying things, not least Hunter’s ties to Ukraine through his work with the gas company Burisma, some of which is now being investigated. (Hunter’s ‘entangled business dealings are becoming hard to ignore’, says the Guardian, after ignoring them for ages!) But it was the elites’ brutal stomping on this story that should worry us more. It confirmed that the new woke elites will do whatever it takes to crush inconvenient facts, to bury stories and ideas and beliefs that pose a threat to their power or their interests. And it confirmed that Big Tech billionaires will happily engage in explicit political censorship to protect their allies and sponsors from scrutiny. If an established newspaper like the New York Post can be forcefully locked out of the 21st-century public square, just imagine what could be done to you or me if we ever happened upon some facts the elites would prefer to keep hidden.”

    “Burying the Hunter Biden Laptop Story Was Journalistic Malpractice ”

    https://www.newsweek.com/burying-hunter-biden-laptop-story-was-journalistic-malpractice-opinion-1691437

    “It was buried in the 24th paragraph of a story that was itself buried on page 20 of a newspaper published when the public’s attention was focused on Ukraine. But for those whose memories extend back to 17 months ago, the admission published in The New York Times on March 17 was political dynamite—the information on the laptop that veterans of the national security establishment claimed was Russian disinformation was, in fact, exactly what reports published in the New York Post in October 2020 said they were: evidence of the Biden family’s influence peddling abroad, that the senior Biden was aware of his son’s activities and might well have profited from them.

    The discovery of the laptop came just weeks before the 2020 presidential election. But the reaction from most of the media—including the Times—was to ignore it.

    Even worse, the Big Tech companies that control the information superhighway and social media platforms sought to prevent the dissemination of any information about the laptop and what Hunter Biden had been up to in Ukraine and China while his father was vice president. The Post’s Twitter account was, for a time, shut down. Those who attempted to retweet the story were prevented from doing so. Anyone who raised the issue or complained about the refusal to cover the story were accused of spreading “disinformation.”

    Many of the same media outlets had spent years spreading accounts about Donald Trump colluding with Russia to steal the 2016 election, which turned out to be false. But journalists and Silicon Valley oligarchs were united in their determination to prevent Trump from winning again and openly boasted of their willingness to put their finger on the electoral scale to defeat him.

    Now that the Times has admitted that the laptop was real, the question of whether Hunter will ultimately face prosecution is of secondary importance. The real question Americans should be asking is who is to be held accountable for one of the worst scandals in the recent history of American journalism.

    Biden apologists may claim that the story about Hunter’s trading on the Biden name to score big bucks in Ukraine and China would not have altered the outcome of the election. They may be right about that, since the coronavirus pandemic and accompanying economic downturn may have already doomed Trump’s hopes. But even if you don’t accept Trump’s claims of massive voter fraud or think Biden’s eight-million popular vote advantage wouldn’t have been dented by anything reported about his family, the willingness of all but conservative outlets to silence such a story on the eve of an election is unprecedented.

    On the other hand, full and open coverage of the laptop story may well have swung the election. A shift of only 43,000 votes toward Trump in three states Biden won by a whisker—Wisconsin, Georgia and Arizona—would have resulted in a 269-269 Electoral College tie that would have sent the election to the House of Representatives, where GOP majorities in state delegations would have flipped the election to the incumbent.”

    “Trump Sues Hillary, Others for Falsely Accusing Him of Colluding With Russia

    “Acting in concert, the Defendants maliciously conspired to weave a false narrative that their Republican opponent, Donald J. Trump, was colluding with a hostile foreign sovereignty.””

    https://legalinsurrection.com/2022/03/trump-sues-hillary-others-for-falsely-accusing-him-of-colluding-with-ryssia/

    “President Donald Trump has sued failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and others for falsely accusing him of colluding with Russia during the 2016 presidential election:

    “Acting in concert, the Defendants maliciously conspired to weave a false narrative that their Republican opponent, Donald J. Trump, was colluding with a hostile foreign sovereignty,” the former president alleged in a lawsuit filed in federal court in Florida.

    Trump, who beat Democratic nominee Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, alleges “racketeering” and a “conspiracy to commit injurious falsehood,” among other claims.

    The other RICO defendants include names you will recognize: James Comey, Christopher Steele, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and Andrew McCabe.

    Trump wants damages awarded to him:

    In the lawsuit, Trump is seeking compensatory and punitive damages. Trump said he was “forced to incur expenses in an amount to be determined at trial, but known to be in excess of twenty-four million dollars ($24,000,000) and continuing to accrue, in the form of defense costs, legal fees, and related expenses.”

    The counts include:

    RICO
    RICO Conspiracy
    Injurious Falsehood
    Conspiracy to Commit Injurious Falsehood
    Malicious Prosecution
    Conspiracy to Commit Malicious Prosecution
    Computer Fraud and Abuse Act
    Theft of Trade Secrets
    Stored Communications Act
    Agency
    Respondeat Superior/Vicarious Liability

    The lawsuit alleges the RICO defendants “conspired with each other” and they “knowingly agreed, conspired and acted in concert for the express purpose of injuring the Plaintiff’s political career and/or impeding his ability to effectively govern through a pattern of racketeering activity.”

    Trump also accuses defendants Clinton, Jake Sullivan (Clinton campaign staffer), Debbie Wasserman Shultz, Igor Danchenko (source for the Steele dossier), Michael Sussmann (former partner at Perkins Coie), and Steele of Injurious Falsehood because they “made, disseminated and/or published false and damaging statements concerning the Plaintiff, specifically that he was colluding with Russia and its President Vladimir Putin.”

    “At all relevant times, the Defendants acted with actual malice, as they knew that the Plaintiff was not colluding with Russia or, at a minimum, acted with reckless abandon as to the truth whether the Plaintiff had colluded with Russia; despite said knowledge, the Defendants conspired to disseminate false information and spread a false narrative in an attempt to ruin the Plaintiff,” states the lawsuit.”

    “Fake News Targets Ron DeSantis Again, and Leads to a Satisfying Takedown”

    https://redstate.com/bonchie/2022/03/25/fake-news-targets-ron-desantis-again-and-leads-to-a-satisfying-takedown-n540699

    “While no one can really compete with the sheer volume and seriousness of fake news pushed by outlets like The New York Times and The Washington Post, Florida’s press industry is doing its level best. Publications like The Miami Herald, The Sun-Sentinel, and The Tampa Bay Times have made it their mission to burn down their languishing credibility in order to take shots at Gov. Ron DeSantis, and that’s meant the publication of false reports more than a time or two.

    The latest example comes via The Miami Herald, which stands as the big dog of far-left, biased reporting in the Sunshine state. On Thursday, they put out the claim that DeSantis is so terrible that he was uninvited from speaking at a conference of immigration supporters.

    Now, to be sure, had he been uninvited, why would that be an indictment of anything? DeSantis is not anti-immigration anymore than Trump is anti-immigration. Both support strong border enforcement and limiting the number of entrants based on merit and need. DeSantis has never suggested we have zero immigration. To that extent, had the governor been snubbed because this conference wants unfettered, unchecked open borders, that would have been just been fine.

    That’s not what happened, though. In reality, DeSantis was not only not uninvited, but he was never invited in the first place.”

    “Note that had the EB5 Conference uninvited DeSantis because he’s oh so bad, they wouldn’t be defending him right now, noting that it was an unchecked staff error at fault (i.e. someone put him on a schedule before anyone confirmed anything). But they are, which is about as solid proof as can exist that the Herald’s report was false.

    But that leaves the next part of this. Where did this reporter get the idea that a speech by DeSantis was canceled over “anti-immigrant” views? Did she just make that up? The answer is yes, yes she did.

    There was apparently an email she garnered from an attendee, not anyone actually involved in organizing the event, who ranted about DeSantis being anti-immigration. Mary Ellen Klaus, the reporter in question, then took that as some kind of proof that DeSantis was uninvited due to anti-immigrant views, something that didn’t even happen. In other words, she connected two dots that were miles apart with half a dozen other dots between them.

    “I was seriously considering your kind invitation until I was informed that you have decided to ask Ron DeSantis to be the keynote speaker at the conference,’‘ wrote Ira Kurzban, a prominent Miami immigration lawyer in an email to the conference hosts, EB-5 Investors magazine. Kurzban shared his email with the Miami Herald.

    “Mr. DeSantis, also known as a mini-me for his Trump-like tactics, has engaged in the most virulent anti-immigrant conduct we have ever seen by a public official in this state,’’ he wrote.

    Aside from the outright lies, the other major problem here once again manifests in a major news outlet (for Florida at least) so wanting to publish a hit piece that it refused to do basic due diligence. The reporter here could have reached out to the governor’s office and given time for a response but she didn’t. She could have even reached out to the EB5 Conference organizers and given time for a response but she didn’t. Those weren’t oversights, though. Rather, the rush to get a punch at DeSantis overrode any journalistic integrity.”
