  1. Recession you say….?

    But I’ve been assured by the Biden admin that this is not the case, since they changed the definition all is well now. It’s like magic.

    “Moody’s: Weak Housing Market “Is Definitely In Recession”…”


  2. It’s fine….

    Everything’s fine….

    “El Paso Official Warns Of “Frightening” Situation At The Border: “It’s Unsustainable”…”


    See. The Biden admin says it’s fine….

    And they never lie.

  3. Reckoning?

    Oh it’s coming, and it’s long overdue.

    “Elon Musk To Media: Info Coming Out of Twitter Has ‘Only Just Begun’

    “The legacy media should worry about its reputation. We have only just begun.”


    “The liberal media seems to have only two speeds regarding the TwitterFiles. They are either ignoring it outright or sneering at it in contempt.

    They fancy themselves as brave truth-tellers, speaking truth to power, but this information threatens their team.

    It’s why Elon Musk has almost become a stand-in for the contempt they previously reserved for Trump.

    The great thing about Musk is that he often pushes back.

    FOX News reports:

    Elon Musk calls out ‘legacy media’ and ‘corporate journalism’: ‘We have only just begun’

    Billionaire and Twitter CEO Elon Musk slammed “corporate journalism” and “legacy media” in separate tweets about the response to the Twitter Files and claims that his reputation is in trouble.

    “Why is corporate journalism rushing to defend the state instead of the people?” Musk wrote Tuesday in response to a tweet about a Substack post headlined “In Response to the Twitter Files, Establishment Media Rushes to Defend the FBI,” written by Leighton Woodhouse.

    Musk has released several installments of the Twitter Files through independent journalists such as Bari Weiss and Matt Taibbi.

    A recent installment detailed the coordination between Twitter and government agencies went way beyond the FBI.

    Musk said in the same thread that he was “open” to the idea of purchasing the Substack platform in response to a tweet from Wall Street Silver, who asked if Twitter should purchase Substack and connect the two platforms.
    “Twitter plus Substack creates instantly massive competition for obsolete legacy corporate media,” the account said.”


    Yes please, because it’s desperately needed.

    “#Twitterfiles show “things that perhaps we suspected were going on but now we know were going on”


    ““Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean people aren’t out to get you.”

    That phrase, or variations on it, came to mind when I was interviewed by Sinclair Broadcasting, which owns or operates over one hundred local TV stations, for which it provides content. So a segment may run on dozens of local stations, with the presentation on air by local anchors the same. Sinclair’s The National Desk reached out to me for comment on the the #Twitterfiles, particularly the latest release related to Covid.

    Here is an excerpt from the story as run on CBS Austin, but clearly attributted to reporter Kayla Gaskins at The National Desk, New Twitter Files show White House pushed for censorship of dissenting voices on COVID:

    The White House and COVID-19 management are at the center of another batch of Twitter’s internal company documents. Journalist David Zweig released the documents Monday in the same style as the previous document dumps: through a Twitter thread.

    The tweets show pressure from the White House on Twitter to control dissenting viewpoints on the pandemic.

    Google, Facebook and Microsoft were also reportedly targeted by top government officials to censor dissent.

    “This sheds a dramatic light on things that perhaps we suspected were going on but now we know were going on,” said William Jacobson, a professor at Cornell Law School.

    According to Zweig, attempts to control pandemic-related online content began with the Trump White House’s attempts to mitigate panic buying. The pressure continued when President Joe Biden took office with the focus shifting to suppressing “anti-vaxxers.”

    “These were political issues that they were intervening on and they were preventing the debate from taking place on the single most influential platform for political discussion, which is Twitter,” Jacobson said….

    In the thread, Zweig tweeted that “the United States government pressured Twitter and other social media platforms to elevate certain content and suppress other content about COVID-19.” …

    “When you stifle one part of the debate, you don’t really have a debate and that’s not what we’re supposed to be about as a society,” Jacobson pointed out. “The media is supposed to be a check on the government. It’s supposed to expose the government, not be a tool of the government.””

  4. #WhoIsRayEpps

    The govt still won’t tell us, because that would expose the whole farce.

    He’s on film repeatedly telling folks to breach the Capital, yet he’s never been arrested or charged. In fact, the “Jan6 Committee” is hiding his deposition to this day.

    Why is that?
