Libs of TikTok Doxing Uncovers Secret Hacker-Government Mercenary Alliance Behind Regime’s War on MAGA Americans

American dissidents of all stripes are ablaze with anger after The Washington Post’s most repugnant reporter, Taylor Lorenz, published yet another piece trying to ruin someone more popular than her.

Taylor Lorenz, a Washington Post columnist, wrote a Tuesday article titled, “Meet the woman behind Libs of TikTok, secretly fueling the right’s outrage machine,” revealing the identity of the user who had intended to remain anonymous. The piece linked the user’s real estate page listing her full name and home address, which the outlet later removed.

The account, which nearly has 700,000 followers, posts TikTok videos of liberals in order to spark a reaction among conservative audiences.

Lorenz reportedly contacted Libs of TikTok early Tuesday telling the account they are “being implicated as a hate campaign against LGBTQ people,” the account said. [Daily Caller]

For those not paying attention, the blazing hot Libs of TikTok account simply finds TikTok videos wherein crazed liberals and LGBTQ-ers, many of them teachers of innocent children, unabashedly reveal their deviant grooming agenda for public consumption.

For instance:

Few people are more repugnant than Taylor Lorenz, who once falsely accused billionaire Marc Andreeson of using the “r-slur” in a Clubhouse room, and whose age is humorously difficult to pin down. Mere weeks ago, Lorenz had a meltdown over “online harassment” in an interview with MSNBC, then pressured the channel into deleting the interview.

Lorenz may be repulsive, to say the least. She certainly courted, assiduously, all the hatred coming her way. But there is a bigger story here. This incident is a case study in how the ruling regime uses cutout “NGOs” and “hackers” to target dissidents for annihilation. It wasn’t Taylor Lorenz who doxed Libs of TikTok. Lorenz is a used-up cocktail waitress for the regime. She’s far too talentless to achieve such a feat. Instead, it was a motley crew of regime actors.

The original doxer of the woman behind Libs of TikTok was an Antifa Twitter user named @karmaonesixone who gloated last weekend about using sleuth work to uncover the account’s original tweets and name.

Another Twitter user, Travis Brown, promoted and confirmed @karmaonesixone’s work, then went on to unearth and reveal even more information about the woman behind LibsofTikTok.

In the Washington Post, Taylor Lorenz herself credits Brown for confirming Libs Of TikTok’s identity.

On Saturday, software developer Travis Brown (who is working on a project with support from Prototype Fund, an organization that backs open-source projects) unearthed the account’s Twitter history and posted a thread detailing information about its profile changes.

Who is Travis Brown? In essence, a man paid by the German government to target, dox, and harass the international left’s ideological enemies.

Brown is the creator of the so-called “Hate Speech Tracker,” a program whose explicit purpose is to aid Antifa extremists in tracking and archiving statements by its enemies, and find “connections” between them to aid in doxxing.

From the horse’s mouth:

WHAT SOCIETAL CHALLENGE DOES YOUR PROTOTYPE ADDRESS?

Many right-wing extremist movements are currently developing on social media, e.g. B. GamerGate, conspiracy theory movements like QAnon and militant movements like the Proud Boys in the USA. Members of these movements often delete their content, change their username, and get banned (often temporarily) from social media platforms. This makes it harder to resist their actions. For example, prominent far-right accounts on Twitter and Facebook have developed a well-documented pattern of distributing controversial and extremist content to their followers and then deleting it before moderators have a chance to respond. This is how they radicalize their audience while minimizing the risk of their platforms losing funding or moderate supporters. Archiving is an important element in counteracting this behavior and in many cases has led to prominent victories against the extreme right.

The Hate Speech Tracker is a set of composable software tools that enable people affected by harassment and hate speech on social media to record and share information about their experiences. Blacklists for Twitter and other social media platforms can be commented on and shared privately, connections between extremist-run accounts can be identified and cases of hate speech can be archived.

WHO IS YOUR TOOL AIMED AT?

The early versions of this project were mainly used by anti-fascist researchers and organizations. Although these specialists represent the primary user group of the project, the tools should also be available to a broader, less specialized user base.

For those wondering, Brown’s work egregiously violates the terms of use of the sites that he tracks “hate” on. As Brown himself noted on his website, Twitter’s own privacy policy states:

“As such, we prohibit the use of Twitter data in any way that would be inconsistent with people’s reasonable expectations of privacy. By building on the Twitter API or accessing Twitter Content, you have a special role to play in safeguarding this commitment, most importantly by respecting people’s privacy and providing them with transparency and control over how their data is used.”

“We want people to feel comfortable to create a separate and, if they choose, pseudonymous identity on Twitter. If you intend to associate any information about a Twitter user with an off-Twitter identifier, we require that you get express, opt-in consent from the user before making the association.

For example, you could get this consent if the user shares their Twitter handle directly with you as part of a signup process for your service. In situations in which you do not have a user’s express, opt-in consent to link their Twitter identity to an off-Twitter identifier, we require that any connection you draw be based only on information that a user would reasonably expect to be used for that purpose. If a user would be surprised to learn that you are using information they provided to link their Twitter account to an identity off of Twitter, don’t do it.”

Brown also openly admits to using certain tactics on Twitter that “probably” violate the ToS.

This isn’t some one-off fluke. Much like Brandy Zadrozny, whom Revolver profiled in 2020, Travis Brown exists as a small part of a much larger ecosystem.

Brown’s doxxing operation isn’t an independent venture. He is backed by the Prototype Fund, a project of the Open Knowledge Foundation Germany, an “independent not-for-profit organization.” The notion that the foundation is “independent” is, of course, a lie. OKFG receives funding directly from the the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

In other words, the German government directly financed the doxing of Libs Of TikTok and Taylor Lorenz’s calculated attempt on behalf of the Washington Post to destroy her life.

Prototype, by the way, doesn’t just fund doxing operations. It funds the mass arrival of “asylum-seekers” into Europe.

It backs the perpetual post-2016 campaign against “fake news.”

Is there something about “trans voices”? You bet there’s something about trans voices!

The same organization that paid to dox Libs Of TikTok is also paying to teach male-to-female transgenders how not to sound like Barry White.

Prototype doesn’t limit itself to online flame wars. It also takes an interest in real wars, funding an archive to gather alleged eyewitness reports of atrocities in the Syrian Civil War.

“Syrian Archive” acts vague about what position it takes on the war, but its website leaves no room for doubt: This is an organization that exists to blame Bashar Assad, and by extension Russia, for chemical attacks (chemical attacks that in at least one case turned out to be a hoax). In fact, its anti-Russia orientation is so obvious that in the last few weeks it has pivoted to warning about imminent chemical attacks in Ukraine:

The same German government-backed organization that is targeting political dissidents in the West is also funding the transgender mania and the foreign policy priorities of the Western elite. In many ways, Prototype resembles Bellingcat—an “NGO” funded by the United Kingdom that played a key role in amplifying the Russia collusion narrative, targets “far-right” domestic dissidents, and promoted the Syria gas attack hoax. In 2021, The Grayzone revealed that Bellingcat took UK intelligence money to run overseas influence operations intended to “weaken Russia.”

America unsurprisingly loves this tactic as well. In February, the hacker collective Distributed Denial of Secrets (DDoS) leaked hacked materials from GiveSendGo that doxed donors to the Canadian trucker convoy. As we previously observed, DDoS is basically a de facto government operation:

In 2020, the Trump Department of Homeland Security claimed that DDoS is a “criminal hacker group.” Despite that, it enjoys IRS non-profit status. DDoS’s high-profile hacks have, almost without exception, targeted domestic dissidents against the regime, or its international enemies, rather than the regime itself. Besides doxing every GiveSendGo donor, DDoS’s other targets include Gab, Parler, local police departments, Russia, Myanmar, and right-wing chat groups online.

So much for speaking truth to power. By all accounts, DDoS speaks power to truth.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, DDoS’s leader is the “chronically ill” “they/she” transgender freak show Emma Best. DDoS almost certainly works hand in hand with serious criminals, if it is not an outright criminal organization itself. Yet nobody is shutting down financial support for DDoS or seizing its assets. While Julian Assange awaits trial and, in all likelihood, life in prison for embarrassing the security state and the Hillary Clinton campaign, “Emma” Best (they/she) faces no serious efforts to stop his activities whatsoever. And why would he? He is among the most heroic tranissaries rendering an invaluable service to the Globalist American Empire.

READ THE REST

The actual hacker who claims credit for hacking GiveSendGo is Aubrey Cottle, who is the co-founder of the old “Anonymous” hacking collective.

In late February, after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Hillary Clinton called for Anonymous and other hacker groups to launch more cyberattacks on Russia. Does anybody think for even a moment that the CIA and other agencies aren’t “encouraging” such behavior behind the scenes?

This isn’t a new idea. Back in 2013, Anonymous carried out operations against the Assad government in Syria.

So, what’s the takeaway from all this? When you see such “hacker groups” operate, they are not operating independently. They exist within an ecosystem where regime stakeholders can use cut-outs to do their dirty work. During the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the merc–, ahem, private military contractor Blackwater served a similar function for combat zones: Flexibility and plausible deniability. Now, the same goes for civil society. Nominally, the U.S. Constitution and the constitutions of its allies protect freedom of speech, and the government explicitly doxing its own citizens for dissent is unlikely to be popular. Rather than have government employees directly target dissidents (which does happen on occasion), it is much easier to quietly enable cutout “civil society organizations,” NGOs, and more — all funded by government yet insulated from any kind of accountability — to do the dirty work.

The Lorenz dox job exposes how this ecology operates. This is not simply the story of a deranged attention whore who went too far. This is a story of how the new Stasi operates: Energy flows from governments, to non-profits, to hackers, and finally to aged out journalists publishing hit pieces on dissidents in Jeff Bezos’s paper of record.

By understanding this system, it becomes possible to stop it. The most obvious fix is the most blunt: Break off the billions in government funding that enable these shadow operations of left-wing radicalism. But that isn’t the only fix. Revolver will further explore this NGO ecosystem in the weeks and months to come. Stay tuned.

Scoop: CNN+ Looks Doomed

Sara Fischer, author of Axios Media Trends
April 19th, 2022

Warner Bros. Discovery has suspended all external marketing spend for CNN+ and has laid off CNN’s longtime chief financial officer as it weighs what to do with the subscription streaming service moving forward, five sources tell Axios.

Why it matters: Inside CNN, executives think the launch has been successful. Discovery executives disagree.

  • CNN+ has roughly 150,000 subscribers so far.
  • Warner Bros. Discovery wants to eventually build one giant service around HBO Max.
  • New leadership has replaced CNN CFO Brad Ferrer with Neil Chugani, Discovery’s current CFO for streaming and international, as part of a broader finance team restructuring.
  • Other high-level positions at WarnerMedia across different business functions are likely to be eliminated to cut costs and streamline leadership in coming weeks.

What to watch: Sources say a plan is being considered to replace Chris Cuomo’s 9:00pm EST primetime slot with a live newscast, instead of personality-driven perspective programming.

Inside CNN

Executives are frustrated that new leadership is moving quickly to dismantle what they see as an eventual lifeline for the cable network.

  • CNN’s original plan was for CNN+ to become profitable in four years by investing $1 billion into the service.
  • A profitable service would’ve diversified CNN’s revenue long-term around a digital asset outside of its website, increasing its valuation and potential, executives believe.
  • CNN+ launched on Roku last week, which should’ve prompted a subscription boost. But with marketing around the service suspended, there are concerns that growth will be short-lived. A point of pride amongst CNN staffers is how smoothly the app’s rollout has been technologically.
  • Executives believe that if the service wasn’t being knee-capped, its growth rate would’ve rivaled other print news outlets like The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post — which have 2.9 million and 2.7 million digital subscribers, respectively.

Yes, but: That analogy, some argue, assumes customers would get the same product on CNN+ that they do with CNN’s linear channel, which isn’t the case.

  • Internal data shows that the shows that do well are the ones that mimic live TV programs, like “5 Things with Kate Bolduan” and “Reliable Sources Daily” with Brian Stelter.
Inside Warner Bros. Discovery

Discovery executives are frustrated that the service launched. If CNN held off launching CNN+ until after the merger, it would have been easier to pivot the company’s efforts towards something better aligned with Discovery’s goals.

  • Discovery’s experience launching niche subscriptions services, like GolfTV and its Food Network Kitchen App, has informed its strategy to focus on one scaled general entertainment offering around HBO Max, instead of more niche services that have to compete with big apps for subscriber cash.
  • Warner Bros. Discovery executives see an opportunity to possibly include some CNN+ content on CNN’s app and make that video available for free and supported by ads, according to one source. Other CNN+ programming could live within HBO Max.
  • It sees potential in leveraging the already massive reach of CNN.com and CNN’s main app to drive its digital growth long-term, as opposed to another subscription outside of linear TV.
  • Discovery executives are focused mostly on returning CNN to its journalistic core, a point Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav reiterated in a town hall last week. That includes less of a focus on primetime perspective programming, and more of a focus on hard, breaking news. CNN+ features an array of soft news content, which doesn’t align with Discovery’s broader vision for CNN.

By the numbers: Last year, CNN brought in roughly $1 billion in profit, with a large portion from long-term distribution contracts for its live TV network, according to two sources.

  • Warner Bros. Discovery executives are willing to forgo some of CNN’s short-term profit growth from linear TV advertising to ensure the network focuses on hard news over ratings, according to one source.
  • CNN+ executives were originally hoping to attract 2 million subscribers in the first year and 15-18 million over four years, as Axios has previously reported.
  • Around $300 million has been spent and hundreds of jobs have been created to support the service.

The big picture: Blame bad timing, limited communications and misaligned incentives for how CNN and Discovery got strategically misaligned on such a massive product rollout.

  • Fearing regulatory scrutiny, former WarnerMedia former parent AT&T and Discovery avoided direct communication about CNN’s strategy until the deal officially closed.
  • While Discovery executives felt they made their priorities publicly clear, CNN executives didn’t feel corporate pressure from WarnerMedia to pause the rollout, according to four WarnerMedia sources.
  • Former CNN head Jeff Zucker’s sudden exit in early February didn’t help solve for some of those communications issues.
  • CNN’s new leader, Chris Licht, doesn’t officially begin until May 2nd, but has joined Zaslav on meetings.

Twitter Founder Jack Dorsey Shreds CNN, Brian Stelter In Online Rant

Carmine Sabia
April 19, 2022

OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author’s opinion.

Jack Dorsey, the founder of Twitter, tore into the mainstream media and, in particular, CNN host Brian Stelter for “creating conflict.”

“Tucker Carlson is always selling the same thing, @pbump says: ‘He’s selling doubt…,’” Stelter said in a tweet on Monday.

“and you all are selling hope?” the Twitter founder responded.

“Well, unlike Tucker Carlson, they are at least not selling ‘testicle tanning’…,” a progressive reporter said, to which Dorsey sarcastically said “amazing substantive comeback.”

“not defending a thing. holding up a mirror,” he said.

“I thought his point was that the press does the same thing, sowing doubt to promote white supremacy and get engagement, often amplifying bad takes, but now I’m not sure anymore,” venture capitalist Ellen Pao said, to which Dorsey replied “Yes.”

“Its kind of weird to see that coming out of the founder of Twitter because I’d have a lot to say on that front…,” computer scientist Timnit Gebru said.

“i’m sure. and we certainly have seen what twitter does positive and negative. I think the common denominator is the current ad model for all media, not just social media,” Dorsey responded.

“even @CNN sometimes sell false news. I know this from covering Iraq events in 2019. People need to understand every media is prone to either mistakes or deliberate corruption. Do your own investigation before believing what they’re selling you,” another person said.

“I know this from being on the streets of Ferguson during the protests and watching them try to create conflict and film it causing the protestors to chant ‘f**k CNN,’” Dorsey responded.

On Sunday he went off on the company’s board of directors amid Elon Musk’s attempts to purchase the company.

Dorsey made some interesting comments on Twitter in response to the company’s board of directors attempting to block Musk after he offered $43 billion to buy the company outright.

“If look into the history of Twitter board, it’s intriguing as I was a witness on its early beginnings, mired in plots and coups, and particularly amongst Twitter’s founding members. I wish if it could be made into a Hollywood thriller one day,” a Twitter user tweeted in response to a thread between Dorsey and others.

Dorsey responded, “It’s consistently been the dysfunction of the company.”

Dorsey also said “big facts” in response to the following statement from venture capitalist Fred Destin: “What I do know for sure is that this old Silicon Valley proverb is grounded in age-old wisdom that still applies today: Good boards don’t create good companies, but a bad board will kill a company every time.”

When another user asked if he was allowed to speak about the board the way he had been, Dorsey responded, “no.”

Twitter is trying to block Musk from purchasing the company by adopting a so-called “poison pill,” which would allow shareholders, except those trying to buy out the company, to purchase newly offered shares at a discounted price.

This could also allow Musk to purchase new shares but at a much higher price, which may be more than he’s interested in spending since he already purchased 73.5 million shares worth $2.9 billion.

It was reported on Monday that Musk has spoken with other investors about joining his bid to purchase Twitter. This comes a week after he formally offered last week to completely buy Twitter for just over $40 billion.

“One possibility, the sources said: teaming with private-equity firm Silver Lake Partners, which was planning to co-invest with him in 2018 when he was considering taking Tesla private. Silver Lake’s Co-CEO Egon Durban is a Twitter board member and led Musk’s deal team during the 2018 failed effort to take Tesla private, sources said. Silver Lake declined to comment,” the New York Post reported.

“For its part, Twitter on Friday adopted a so-called poison pill — a corporate move that prevents Musk from acquiring more than 15% of the company. But that pill may not stop other entities or people from acquiring their own shares of up to 15% of the company. Those owners could partner with Musk to force a sale, make changes in the executive ranks or push for other overhauls of the company,” the report added.

“This is not over,” a source told the New York Post.

Chris Wallace Suffering ‘Daily Breakdowns’ After Big Failure at CNN

Richard Bledsoe, The Western Journal
April 14, 2022 

There’s an old idiom, “The grass always looks greener on the other side of the fence.” It cautions against making an envious and perhaps mistaken comparison between a current situation and a potential new opportunity.

Veteran news anchor Chris Wallace must have forgotten that nugget of wisdom. In December 2021, Wallace left his secure position at top-rated Fox News and joined the failing “competitor” CNN.

Now, rumors suggest Wallace is unhappy and insecure in his new gig.

Journalist Jon Nicosia, a former managing editor of Mediaite and current president of News Cycle Media, shared the story on Twitter.

“SOURCE: Chris Wallace is ‘having daily breakdowns’ over the ‘miserable launch’ of CNN+. Wants a ‘CNN show or is threatening to walk’ they go on,” Nicosia wrote. “‘He is having staffers count how many times a day his promo is playing.’”

The irony is the new CNN+ service just had a titanic failure of a launch in March. There are already discussions of company layoffs happening as soon as May.

It seems not many customers want to pay for the type of programming they were not even watching when there was no extra cost for it.

The supposedly seasoned news veteran Wallace, 74, staked what remains of his career on this shaky proposition.

It was assumed Wallace would have his own show on the streaming service. It’s also assumed CNN paid him generously to switch. Wallace had been with Fox 18 years, and the Los Angeles Times estimated his annual salary there to be at least $5 million.

Wallace wasn’t gracious about leaving Fox either.

Besides making the announcement abruptly, Wallace trashed his former network in a New York Times interview published in March.

He sneered at the integrity of the network and its viewers, saying about his long tenure on Fox: “But I can certainly understand where somebody would say, ‘Gee, you were a slow learner, Chris.’”

Now Wallace is left griping about his diminished options as the CNN brand is in freefall.

Having his staff track make a daily, strange ritual of monitoring and recording the number of times his promotional clips are played suggests Wallace is paranoid about his stature at CNN, even as the network has struggled with multiple scandals.

CNN president Mark Zucker resigned in February after allegations of inappropriate conduct. In December 2021, anchor Chris Cuomo was fired and two producers left the company after being accused of sex crimes involving children.

Fox News does not miss Chris Wallace.

In fact, Maria Bartiromo, a Fox News and Fox Business Network host, has twice called out the former anchor for running interference for Joe Biden in this infamous exchange from the first presidential campaign debate on Sept. 29, 2020. Wallace was the debate moderator:

When the Hunter Biden laptop surfaced in a bombshell New York Post report two weeks later, it would almost certainly have been taken with more credibility if Wallace had not interfered like that. Maybe  Twitter and Facebook, not to mention the mainstream news media, would not have felt as safe squelching the story if it had been treated more seriously on a national stage by a well-known newsman.

Despite being on Fox, Chris Wallace was never a conservative, or even an objective journalist. He was always a part of the establishment media, concerned with advancing the establishment’s narrative, not delivering the news.

At least with him on the sinking ship of CNN, a lot fewer people will be exposed to Wallace’s brand of bias.

Slow Death of MSM: MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow to Scale Back to Mondays Only

Madeleine Hubbard
April 11th, 2022

EDITORS NOTE: With the recent firing of both Chris Cuomo and his convicted pedophile producer, the resignation of Jeff Zucker, and Brian Stelter waiting for the ax to fall, it must cause onlookers to wonder about the future of the MSM as we knew it.

Rachel Maddow on Monday announced that she will step back from her MSNBC show next month with plans to only be on air one day per week.

She told her audience that starting in May, she will only present on Mondays and will oversee a broader range of NBCUniversal projects instead, Variety reported.

“I do still have all these other irons in the fire, all these other things I’m working on that I want to bring to fruition, none of them are fast, all of them take a long time, and I’m still working on all of them,” the MSNBC anchor told her audience on Monday.

The network has not yet announced a successor for “The Rachel Maddow Show.”

After 13 years with MSNBC, Maddow ended rumors of a split with the network in August when she renewed her contract.

‘Hostile Takeover Inbound’: World Reacts To Musk Not Joining Twitter’s Board As He Posts Cryptic Tweet

Ryan Saavedra
Apr 11, 2022

Entrepreneur Elon Musk set the internet ablaze on Sunday night after Twitter, which he recently became the largest shareholder of, announced that he had declined their offer to join the company’s board.

“Elon Musk has decided not to join our board,” Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal said in a statement. “We announced on Tuesday that Elon would be appointed to the Board contingent on a background check and formal acceptance. Elon’s appointment to the board was to become officially effective 4/9, but Elon shared that same morning that he will no longer be joining the board.”

“There will be distractions ahead, but our goals and priorities remain unchanged,” Agrawal later added. “The decisions we make and how we execute is in our hands, no one else’s. Let’s tune out the noise, and stay focused on the work and what we’re building.”

Shortly after the announcement was made, Musk tweeted out an emoji of a face with a hand over its mouth, which usually means “to cover your mouth, not to speak, to mute” and is typically used to “express emotions of rapture, smirk, shy smile, or happiness.”

However, Musk later deleted the tweet.

After becoming their top shareholder with control of more than 9% of the company, Musk signed an agreement with Twitter for the following terms as long as he served on their board: “Mr. Musk agrees that, for so long as Mr. Musk is serving on the Board and for 90 days thereafter, Mr. Musk will not, either alone or as a member of a group, become the beneficial owner of more than 14.9% of Company’s common stock outstanding at such time, including for these purposes economic exposure through derivative securities, swaps or hedging transactions.”

Since Musk declined to join the board, he is not bound by any restrictions on how much of the company he can buy, journalist Yashar Ali noted.

“Hostile takeover inbound,” Austen Allred, CEO Bloom Institute of Technology, tweeted. “My read of this: (I’m guessing). 1. Twitter board wakes up to realize Elon owns 9% of the company. There’s a path to him taking over. 2. Offers a board seat contingent upon him not buying too many shares. Try to contain. 3. Negotiations break down on term details. 4. ???”

Matt Bilinsky, a business attorney, suggested that the reason Musk did not join Twitter’s board was because he would not have been able to say much about the company publicly. “Since the Board announcement he’s been crowdsourcing ideas and chatting via Twitter,” he tweeted. “He quickly realized that’s all over as soon as he actually joins the Board and tapped out.”

Rumblings: CNN May Be Giving Mr. Potato Head the Boot

Jim Hoft
April 5, 2022 

The CNN bloodbath continues.

First, it was Jeff Zucker, then Chris Cuomo and it looks like Brian Stelter may be next.

Charlie Gasparino tweeted this out last week.

In early February The Gateway Pundit reported that CNN insiders were calling for Stelter’s head.

Maybe CNN is finally getting tired of all of their fake news hosts?

Chris Wallace Gets OWNED By Maria Bartiromo for Covering Up Biden Family Crimes During 2020 Presidential Debate [Video]

Moderator Chris Wallace Worked Hard to Prevent President Trump’s Attempts to Bring Up Hunter Biden’s Crimes During the 2020 Presidential Debate

Sunday morning Maria Bartiromo tore into the media, including former colleague Chris Wallace, for their coverup of the Hunter Biden laptop story. She used a clip of Chris Wallace trying his hardest during the 2020 Presidential Debate to prevent President Trump from bringing to light Hunter Biden’s illicit payments from Moscow.

The relevant part of the debate’s transcript can be found below:

From the Gateway Pundit:

President Trump: So why was he given tens of millions of dollars.

Joe Biden: He wasn’t given tens of millions of dollars. That’s totally, that’s totally been discredited.

Chris Wallace: President Trump, we’ve already been through this. I think the American people would rather hear about more substantial subjects…

President Trump: (interrupts)

Chris Wallace: Well, you know as the moderator, sir, I’m going to make a call here.

President Trump: Three and a half million dollars from the mayor of Moscow…

Joe Biden: That is not true.

President Trump: Why did he get it?

Wallace injected his leftist beliefs repeatedly throughout the debate, culminating in a shouting match with President Trump as he desperately tried to prevent all mention of Hunter Biden’s criminal behavior. That Wallace was even selected for the moderator position is an affront to fairness, but of course Democrats never play fair.

Maria Bartiromo tears into  not only Wallace but the media as a whole for covering up the laptop initially and for refusing to acknowledge the possibility that Hunter Biden’s crimes are linked to his father.

Bartiromo raises the question: How could Biden be tough on countries which own his son? Simple. He Can’t.

Do you agree with Maria about Chris Wallace?

Watch: Joe Rogan Slams Media Coverup of Hunter Biden Laptop Story

James Anthony
March 20, 2022

Podcasting icon Joe Rogan slammed the corporate media’s coverage of the Hunter Biden laptop saga on Saturday’s episode of his popular show featuring former CIA covert operations officer Mike Baker, the current CEO of a global intelligence firm.

In the program’s segment, Baker noted the legacy media “love a good story.”

“They don’t just love a good story. They love a narrative, and they’re willing to ignore facts to push that narrative. That’s what scares me,” Rogan said.

Rogan noted he believes there are objective journalists who work for The Washington Post and The New York Times. “There’s real solid journalists out there,” Rogan acknowledged, “but I don’t necessarily know if you’re getting all the information,” he continued, causing Baker to break out in laughter.

“You’re not sure?” Baker asked Rogan sarcastically.

“I think it’s safe to say that some f*ckery is afoot,” replied Rogan.

The New York Timesjust now, is admitting that the Hunter Biden laptop is real. And, we remember from the debates, with Trump bringing it up to Biden, and Biden saying, ‘It’s bullshit.’ And it’s a lie, a flat-out lie. Everybody knew it was a lie,” Rogan went on, then referring to when The New York Post‘s bombshell report on the infamous “laptop from hell” was suppressed on Twitter in October 2020.

Rogan said the censorship “was just outright crazy,” mentioning that the conservative news outlet is “one of the oldest newspapers in the country.”

He stressed how “nobody is apologizing.” CNN anchor Brian Stelter has refused to apologize for amplifying the “Russian disinformation” claim as well as the dozens of former intelligence officials who either doubled down or declined to comment.

“There’s a dynamic here,” Baker jumped in. “I love this topic, in a sense, not so much because of whatever the f*ck Hunter was up to, but in part, because now when you look at the liberal Dems and the progressives, it doesn’t matter to them.”

Baker elaborated further on the topic of left-wing apathy to the Hunter Biden laptop story, saying, “If you read some of the narrative that’s out there now, the social media in the past day or so, ever since The New York Times came out with this, they’re just dismissive of it. They don’t care, or they’re willing to overlook it.”

“Which is the same thing they accuse the right of doing. Both sides—we’ve talked about this before—both sides are just so f*ked up,” Baker added.

BREAKING: CNN Expected To Make Big Changes; Opinion-Oriented Anchors “Out By The End Of Spring”

Patty McMurray 
March 11th, 2022

CNN continues to undergo massive changes coinciding with AT&T’s corporate handoff to new owner Discovery and the ouster of former company president Jeff Zucker. Zucker left, Chris Cuomo went, and sundry employees did the same as disgusting allegations of pedophilia came to light.

Ratings have been in a freefall ever since Brandon was inaugurated, and over-the-top, fake news about Donald Trump couldn’t be manufactured for its unthinking viewership anymore. Covid panic porn has likewise lost its luster. So, in a battle for survival, the “news” network’s owners are realizing that simply making up hysteria after hysteria might not be a viable long-term plan.

Sources close to the network are suggesting it seeks a transition to being a more reputable news source, which will inevitably and necessarily include a change to additional public-facing personnel. Who will go, and who will stay? This could get quite interesting. And entertaining.

Jon Nicosia has been following the story closely with some help from internal players. His revelations predict that the new controlling group is set on returning CNN to no-nonsense coverage and that such a realignment will require the release of prominent personalities that are far too married to bloviating opinionating.

Nicosia, under the handle of @NewsPolitics, shared a series of tweets breaking the story.

“SOURCE: John Malone, Discovery’s board member, will “play a huge role in the new organization’s plans to return @CNN to its news channel roots and dismantle the partisan organization Zucker shifted it into” They continue: “This will mean a large realignment of staff.”

“SOURCE: This ‘realignment’ will start with @CNN Anchors. One (who was very close with Zucker) and will have a hard time transitioning away from opinion will “be out by the end of Spring.”

The comment on the channel war between CNN and Fox is super intriguing. Obviously, both channels attract much different bases, but some folks over at CNN (see: Tater Stelter) operate entire programming and social media presences simply by commenting on what Tucker and friends are saying. It’s not interesting and reasonable people have been asking what seems like forever why Stelter continues to have a job. He is not intelligent, not interesting, extremely condescending, and in both listening and watching him, is neither pleasing to the ears nor the eyes.

The change in formatting is also welcome news – pun intended. Their coverage of Ukraine has been a disaster, but it’s hard to place that blame on CNN when everyone’s coverage of Ukraine has been a disaster. They have reporters on the ground trying to make sense of the situation, which is all anyone really asks of a news team. Go to the site, report live and share what you’re seeing and hearing.

Is that so hard? In a short time, we will find out.
