Flotsam and Jetsam - Twitter Dump #8 Out, Dems Vote to Release Trump's Tax Returns

 But first, will he or won't he find a new sucker CEO. The Peacock reports Elon Musk actively searching for a new Twitter CEO, sources say. At Twitchy, Elon Musk vows to resign as CEO of Twitter as soon as he identifies a replacement. Matt Margolis at PJ Media thinks otherwise, Think Elon Musk Will Actually Step Down as Twitter CEO? Guess Again.  "The fine print of the poll is that anyone who would take over as CEO of Twitter would need to have the same vision for the platform as Musk does, and that’s a rather significant caveat. I’m sure the radical left was hoping that some dictatorial leftist would be handed the keys to Twitter and reinstate the censorship regime, but it appears that Musk isn’t about to let that happen." Puckishly, Puck writes of Elon’s Legal Road to Perdition "The explosion of litigation stemming from Musk’s rampage at Twitter—mass firings, gag orders, jilted shareholders and vendors—threatens to expedite the company’s astounding downfall into the hands of its creditors. Too bad he’s fired so many lawyers." Reforming Twitter would be better, but killing Twitter 1.0 would still be a public service. At Am Great AJ Rice nominates Musk to be  African American of the Year. At Da Wire, Confronting Twitter’s Pornography Problem Would Tackle The Child Exploitation Epidemic, Advocates For Online Safety Say.

So Twitter files #8 dropped, from a new player, Lee Fang, original here. *How Twitter Quietly Aided the Pentagon’s Covert Online PsyOp Campaign*. The gist of it is that Twitter was quietly allowing the Pentagon to use Twitter as a propaganda tool, with the same sort of false accounts that we would decry if the Russians used them and that were against Twitters TOS. Frankly, I'm shocked old Twitter cooperated with the military to the extent that it did, but not especially upset. Sundance at CTH  Twitter File Release #8 – Evidence Showing Pentagon/State Dept using Twitter for Propaganda, Release Curated to Protect Barack Obama Unfortunately, as admitted by Twitter File #8 Author Lee Fang, a writer for The intercept, “The searches were carried out by a Twitter attorney, so what I saw could be limited.” There is no ‘could be‘ in that statement. The searches were limited, specifically time limited putting all of the scrutiny on the timeline when Donald Trump was in office."from the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 12.20.22, Twitchy, Twitter Files #8 Reveal How Twitter Helped The Pentagon Run Covert Online PsyOps.

But release #7, the involvement of the FBI, still seems to be garnering the most attention. Via the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 12.19.22, The Geller Reports the  FBI Had 80 Agents Monitor Joke and Satire Accounts To Silence Conservatives, Power Line has Notes on the Twitter Files, cont’d, Weasel Zippers,  Rep.

Nick Arama at Red State says Musk Demands Answers From Adam Schiff About Bombshell News FBI Paid Twitter to Censor.  From The New Neo, Twitter files #7: the FBI sets up the scam. At Da Wire, New ‘Twitter Files’ Show FBI Paid Twitter Millions, Influenced Execs To Censor Hunter Biden Laptop Story. At Am Think Andrea Widburg thinks The most damning Twitter File just dropped, highlighting FBI wrongdoing. Across da pond at Da Mail, FBI paid Twitter $3.5M 'to do its bidding': Taxpayers' money was used for 'processing requests' from the bureau amid Hunter Biden censorship scandal - as anger grows over secret state censorship of the American people. Jordan Boyd at Da Fed, With Russia Hoaxer Jim Baker On The Inside, The FBI Primed Twitter To Kill Hunter Biden Story Long Before It Broke. At PI, Twitter Revelations Illustrate Deep State Involvement in First Amendment Violations. From Da Caller, Soros-Funded Nonprofit Played Key Role In Twitter’s Preparation For Dealing With Hunter Biden Story, Docs Reveal. PM reports on how Biden press sec dodges question on FBI censoring Hunter Biden story and that the RNC demands FEC 're-examine' complaint that Twitter's suppression of Hunter Biden laptop story was illegal campaign contribution

Breitbart notes Twitter Employed Gang of Spies Leading Up to 2020 Election. At Da Fed, Mark Hemingway wonders Are FBI And CIA Agents ‘Sheep Dipped’ At Twitter And Other Tech Companies? Meaning, are they actually still on the agency books and working under cover? An excellent question. Also at Da Mail, 'I want to see heads roll, I want to see people fired for what they’ve done': Rep. Nancy Mace says oversight committee will subpoena FBI chiefs over Twitter censorship - as she slams them for failing to deal with Antifa. But Spence Brown at Town Hall observes Dem Lawmakers Threaten Facebook: Continue Censorship or Else. Breitbart, Harris: I ‘Would Require’ Tech to ‘Work with Us’ to Ensure There’s Not ‘Manipulation’ to Upend ‘the Security of our Democracy and our Nation’.  At Am Spec, Dave Catron has a Poll: Voters Say Twitter Tilted 2020 Election, "A new survey indicates the voters believe social media censorship favored Biden." Well, that was the point, wasn't it? The Geller Report Freed J6 Political Prisoner, Former West Virginia Delegate Denounces Kevin McCarthy, and FBI Had 80 Agents Monitor Joke and Satire Accounts To Silence Conservatives

Matt Palumbo at Bongino, Devin Nunes Speaks Out After Report DOJ Spied on His Staffers. Stacy McCain wonders Why Was the Department of Justice Spying on Republican Congressional Staff? "Something for Jim Jordan’s committee to investigate . . . .And they told me “The Deep State” was a myth . . ." Capt. Ed at Haut Hair, AP: You'll never guess what governments are doing with all of that pandemic tracking tech!

In what can best be described as a "fuck you" move, House Democrats vote to make Trump's tax returns PUBLIC - after four-year battle - while top Republican claims decision has 'unleashed a dangerous new weapon' that threatens 'average taxpayers' (Da Mail). Paula Bolyard at PJ Media, House Committee Votes to Release Trump's Tax Returns Toshiro Mifune (blue check)@xenophonrocks "Democrats insist on showing that Trump tried to give the govt as little of his $$$ as possible. Just like the rest of us. CNN@CNN "House Democrats release documents showing what former President Donald Trump filed on income tax returns and explaining the committee's investigation.". I have no doubt the returns will show Trump's accountants used every legal, as well as some of dubious legality, strategy to reduce his tax burden. This demands a nuclear response. Upon getting the house back, Republican should subpoena and release the tax records of every house Democrat, their families, their business partners and their friends. And then release any that look embarrassing. The precedent has been set, and approved by the Supreme Court.

At PJ Media Kevin Downey explains Why You Need to Stop Worrying and Love Trump Again. Althouse, Biden called Trump "very gracious and generous" and — shocked by his own generosity? — changed it to "Shockingly gracious." "I'm reading the Politico report on a new book about Biden, "The Fight of His Life" (by Chris Whipple). Biden caught himself uttering a bit of graciousness about Trump — calling him "very gracious and generous" — but he couldn't let it stand. It required immediate poisoning. It had to become an occasion for commentary on how Trump is generally to be considered a man incapable of graciousness and generosity. Trump, we all must know, is, overall, a boorish lout." Dan Gelernter at Am Great  says Trump Was a Mistake "The success of Donald Trump’s presidency dealt establishment politicians a heavy blow. A second Trump term might kill them—and they know it." NewsMax, Poll: Nearly Half Say Biden Has Made US Worse. John Hinderacker at Power Line, Sorry About Those Jobs, "Joe Biden’s Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that over a million jobs were created in the second quarter, a heartening statistic that no doubt helped the Democrats in November. But now, the Philadelphia Federal Reserve says that those million jobs were almost entirely fictitious." Funny how that happened just before the midterms, eh? Derek Hunter at Town Hall nominated Joe Biden for Idiot Leftist Of The Year Nominee No. 4.

Andrea Widburg at Am Think The January 6 committee refers Trump for criminal prosecution. Tristan Justice at Da Fed, J6 Committee Asks Justice Department To Neutralize Political Opponents With Criminal Prosecution. At Am Great the redoubtable Julie Kelly tells us What to Watch For In  the January 6 Report "The omissions will be more telling about what really happened on January 6, 2021 than what’s actually in the report." Like an actual crime. Charlotte Hazzard at JTN has the video as Alan Dershowitz says Jan. 6 committee's criminal referral of Trump is unconstitutional "Article One limits the power of Congress through legislative actions."  At Slay, Alan Dershowitz Sets Liz Cheney Straight: Trump’s Criminal Referral Is ‘Clearly Unconstitutional’ and Jonathan Turley Overrules Adam Schiff: ‘Crimes Cannot Be Proven by Soundbite or Desire Alone.’ Althouse "Why the DOJ Might Have a Tough Time Proving Trump Committed 'Insurrection'/It would take a very aggressive prosecutor to take the risk involved in pursuing it. "A Slate article by Dennis Aftergut, a former federal prosecutor." Matt Vespa at Town Hall even finds a Liberal Writer who Shreds the January 6 Criminal Referral Facade With a One TweetMichael Tracey@mtracey "What's being called a "criminal referral" by the Jan 6 committee carries just as much legal weight as a letter written in magic marker by Bozo the Clown. Has no basis at all in any statute or House rule, they just put out a Word document and made up a serious-sounding name for it." Insty, YEP: “After 2 fabricated impeachments I don’t care what the January 6th committee makes up.” UPDATE: Scott Adams@ScottAdamsSays "The Jan6th Committee reminds America that we can never again allow a small band of unarmed protesters to conquer the largest military power in the history of human civilization by sauntering through the Capitol rotunda and taking selfies. We were so close to losing everything." City Journal,  Democracy Under Siege? "Parsing the New York Times’s obsession with alarmism." At Breitbart, House Republicans Rip January 6 Committee over Ethics Referrals: ‘Another Partisan and Political Stunt’  Roger Kimball at Spec World, The Deep State vs Donald Trump saga is not over "Will the J6 Committee backfire as its status as a politicized vendetta becomes unbearably obvious?"

Athena Thorne at PJ Media, Great News for Kari Lake! Kari Lake@KariLake, "BREAKING: Our Election Case is going to trial. Katie Hobbs attempt to have our case thrown out FAILED. She will have to take the stand & testify. Buckle up, America. This is far from over." Jazz Shaw at Haut Hair explains Parts of Kari Lake's lawsuit move forward. "Two of the claims were allowed to move forward, however, and they are among the most serious charges being presented. Lake is hoping to demonstrate that “intentional interference” by election officials resulted in the mysterious failure of so many voting machines in Maricopa County. She will also be able to attempt to show that some mail-in ballots were improperly added by a county contractor, leading to an erroneous result.
