Flotsam and Jetsam: Twitter Files Still Going Strong

Nothing much really new and exciting. We're still ruminating on Twitter release #10 (or #11, depending on who's counting) regarding Twitter, and the government's role in  censoring the COVID debate. I expect more on this subject. At Da Wire, Latest Twitter Files Reveal How Biden Admin ‘Rigged’ The COVID Vaccine Debate. Kevin Downey at PJ Media Twitter Files, Part X: Banning Those Who Dared Question the COVID Narrative at the Biden administrations urging. The Rabbit Hole@TheRabbitHole84 "It is hard to understate the levels of dishonesty we witnessed during Covid. No amount of political doublespeak can make this poof away. The game has changed - once the internet has receipts, the evidence is forever." David Strom at Haut Hair VIP, Twitter Files: COVID censorship led to political censorship. Funny how that worked. Herr Professor Jacobsen at LI, #Twitterfiles Vindicate Dr. Andrew Bostom – Wrongly Suspended For Accurate But Politically Inconvenient Science On Covid, “My ‘offense’ was not abiding an ‘accepted narrative’ [regarding Covid] regardless of how warped that narrative was.  Twitter’s behavior, certainly before Elon Musk took ownership of the company, epitomizes the triumphal (for now) anti-scientific, ethical, and legal cretinism of today’s major social media platforms.” From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 12.27.22   STUMP, Twitter Files Hits COVID Stats: Good Luck with Rebuilding Trust, CDC, also, from Louder With Crowder: Watch: Elon Musk says the obvious part out loud about ‘almost every Twitter conspiracy theory’,  The Geller Reports CATASTROPHIC: Twitter COVID FILES: US Govt Censored Content, Suspended Users, Targeted “Anti-Vaxxers”, Promoted Fear, and Power Line  Notes on the Twitter Files (10), and A Twitter Files footnote. Of course, another aspect of social media censorship surrounding WuFlu was the rejection and banning of any treatments other than vaccination and Paxlovid. Today at Insty, THE META-ANALYSIS: Ivermectin Is Safe and Effective.
Mortality from COVID-19 over all time periods of delay in treatment was 76% improved over controls (69% in randomized controlled trials), whereas mortality was improved 84% in early treatment of COVID-19 (82% in randomized controlled trials). Forty studies were excluded from the meta-analysis for complicating factors or insufficient detail reported, and these also showed 100% positive results.

It is estimated that the likelihood of an ineffective treatment showing such positive results as the above results in the 63 studies in the meta-analysis to date is exceedingly small. That probability is estimated to be one in one trillion.
The narrative: Horse dewormer dangerous for humans, ineffective COVID-19 treatment.

I believe that Ivermectin was rejected almost entirely because it was suggested by Donald Trump. Had Hillary Clinton suggested it, it would have been made mandatory. 

At Da Caller, A Dem-Linked Dark Money Network Is Quietly Funding The ‘Misinformation’ Research Industry, Arabella Advisors, funded largely by George Soros. Insty, They know who they work for, and it isn’t you. Elon Musk@elonmusk, "Why is corporate journalism rushing to defend the state instead of the people?" Quote Tweet Leighton 明 Woodhouse "On my substack: Establishment journalists' response to the Twitter Files is that of a profession committed to protecting the state instead of exposing it." David Strom at Haut Hair on The real misinformation threat. Our own "experts."  Ralph Benko at Am Spec argues Musk Is Using the Free Market, Not Government Censorship, to Fix Twitter, "Putting the government in charge of what can be published online would kick the First Amendment to the curb. Chris Bray at Tell Me How this Ends shows The Twitter Files Are a Business Problem too, "In addition to the free speech problem and the pathologies of gleichschaltung, the Twitter files are about the way government without boundaries consumes resources from every entity it touches. Twitter’s path to bankruptcy runs through the premise that every government official who doesn’t like a tweet deserves a meeting." At Da Wire, Purported Inventor Of Email Tosses Hat In Twitter CEO Ring “Dear Mr. Musk, I am interested in the CEO position @Twitter,” Ayyadurai tweeted. “I have 4 degrees from MIT & have created 7 successful high-tech software companies. Kindly advise of the process to apply. Sincerely, Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai, MIT PhD The Inventor of Email.”

Jazz Shaw at Haut Hair reminds us a Significant majority want FBI's social media interactions investigated, but don't get too excited, a majority of the Democrats probably think they're not doing enough. From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 12.27.22 At Am Great, John O'Connor claims Wray’s FBI Is Rotting from the Head Down. Ace wakes up and notices Mark Hemingway: Are FBI and CIA Agents at Twitter and Other Tech Monopolies Just "Sheep-Dipped" Government Wolves? I'm guessing some of each.

I think the term "sheep-dipped" refers to dipping a wolf in sheep-paint to cover up his real nature. Although this term mostly applies to military intelligence officers being "cleaned up" as non-spooks, he applies it here to FBI and CIA agents. Are these guys really just still government operatives, still being paid by the government, but tasked to infiltrate "private" corporations while executing FBI/CIA directives?

At Am Great Adam Mill wonders Should We Boycott the 2024 Election? "Maybe until the FBI stops directing our political process. . . . As I write this, opposition parties around the world have used election boycotts to embarrass repressive regimes that crave the legitimacy of an apparent election victory. For example, Nicaraguan exiles recently called for a boycott of their country’s upcoming election." At Am Great, the great Victor Davis Hanson wonders What Will the FBI Not Do?

The redoubtable Julie Kelly at Am Great seeks to reveal What Did Nancy Pelosi Know and When Did She Know It? "The January 6 select committee never intended to act as a truth-seeking mission but rather perform a cover-up for what actually happened."

Also from Herr Professor Jacobsen, Court Dismisses Kari Lake Election Challenge, Cites Lack Of Evidence As To Intentional Misconduct Affecting The Outcome, "This demonstrates the problem with election challenges that are outside the normal recount process. You are asking a judge to overturn the certified election result – that’s a lot to ask. You need to prove to a high degree of evidentiary proof that a fraud took place and that it affected the outcome. That almost never is provable." At New Neo, The Kari Lake election fraud verdict: Part I

We have to be able to trust our elections. But the only way to foster trust or restore it is to have more safeguards in place at the outset against fraud. In the name of voter inclusion as they define it, Democrats seem determined to jettison even many of the elementary and obvious safeguards such as voter ID, and this effort raises the amount of suspicion that their goal is to enable fraud – which is easiest to perform in the populous blue counties they usually control (Maricopa County is a GOP-controlled anomaly, but the GOP there detests Trump supporters such as Lake). Calling people who see the evidence as strongly indicative that fraud occurred “election deniers” might actually work to demonize them in the eyes of others, but it does absolutely nothing to increase the trust that is so necessary to a functioning democracy or a functioning republic. And we have most definitely lost that trust.

At Da Wire, Incoming Arizona Governor Katie Hobbs Files Sanctions Against Kari Lake After Election Lawsuit  Dan Chaitin at Da Wire reported that  Kari Lake Could Be On Hook For Big Payday Benefiting Dem Lawyer From Steele Dossier Debacle (Marc Elias). But then 'Bonchie' at Red State chimes in with Kari Lake Finally Scores a Win Against Katie Hobbs and sundance at CTH explains Arizona Judge Orders Kari Lake to Pay $33,000 in Witness Fees but No Legal Sanctions

At Da Caller, Democrats Move To Rewrite State Voting Laws After Midterm Wins, because, of course they do. I&I has a poll, U.S. Voters (Overwhelmingly) Want Their Old Election System Back. Racists and transphobes, of course.

Tom Jackson at Haut Hair VIP thinks he has More evidence of why DeSantis may never peak. Tom Joyce at WaEx claims Mike Pence would be a candidate without a constituency. My feelings exactly. From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 12.27.22 and Louder with Crowder, Potential GOP presidential candidate shows off the flamethrower Santa Claus brought her for Christmas, Kristi Noem.
