    As I wrote earlier, there are a lot of powerful folks meeting at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos over the past few days, from the heads of liberal media like the chair of the NY Times to Biden officials and politicians.Here is a list of U.S. public figure officials who were in attendance, in addition to all kinds of media and businesses including Black Rock and people from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.pic.twitter.com/QKnc2LG0zg— Dr. Nickarama (@nickaramaOG) January 19, 2023A couple of people on the list drew particular concern: Biden’s Director of National Intelligence, Avril Haines, and FBI...

    The FBI revealed how the bureau uses the CIA and National Security Agency to probe the private lives of Americans without a warrant in its updated rulebook, which is the first version made public since the Obama administration. The handbook, rewritten in 2021, confirms a decade-old leak showcasing the bureau’s collaboration with the CIA and NSA for FBI probes that may involve surveillance without court orders against people not accused of any crimes. Such probes are known as “assessments” at the FBI. The revelations will fuel critics who have long accused the FBI of abusing its national security surveillance powers.

    One of the ringleaders in a plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer was sentenced to more than 19 years behind bars Wednesday — a day after an accomplice was slapped with a 16-year prison term, federal prosecutors said. Barry Croft Jr., 47, was handed the 19½-year sentence by Michigan federal Judge Robert Jonker four months after his conviction for conspiring to kidnap the Democratic governor from her Elk Rapids vacation cottage in 2020. Croft, a trucker from Delaware, was the fourth and final defendant in the plot to learn his fate. The judge described him as “the idea guy”...

    The FBI not only has possession of a laptop computer owned by slain Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer Seth Rich, but a report detailing forensic imaging of what’s being described as Rich’s work computer, the bureau revealed in a new filing. The FBI’s records office located the report while searching for the work computer, Michael Seidel, chief of the office, said in a sworn declaration filed with a federal court in Texas on Dec. 9. He described the document as “a three (3) page forensic report detailing the actions performed by an outside entity to image the work laptop.”The report...

    A Big Tech lawsuit has uncovered one of the most disturbing revelations yet about social media companies’ collusion with law enforcement agencies to police speech on the Internet. A former FBI agent, Elvis Chan, revealed during the court hearings that the bureau held weekly meetings with major social media companies prior to the 2020 and 2022 elections. On Wednesday, the court transcript of former FBI agent Elvis Chan’s testimony was released and corroborated earlier reports. “Mr. Chan, or Agent Chan, who do you recall on the social media platform side participating in these — in these working group meetings that...

    Elvis Chan estimated social media companies took censorship action 50% of the time when FBI asked. An FBI agent's testimony in a freedom of speech case confirms that the bureau ran an operation during the 2020 election that requested social media companies remove content as disinformation, suggesting the government’s requests succeeded about half of the time and were conducted with a "headquarter stamp of approval." Elvis Chan, the FBI assistant special agent in charge of the Cyber Branch in San Francisco, told lawyers for the Missouri and Louisiana attorneys general in a lawsuit over social media censorship that he supervised...
  • FBI Warned Twitter During ‘Weekly’ Meetings of Hunter Biden ‘Hack-and-Leak Operation’ Before Censoring The Post

    12/04/2022 11:35:14 PM PST · by nickcarraway · 48 replies
    The FBI warned Twitter during “weekly” meetings before the 2020 election to expect “hack-and-leak operations’’ by “state actors” involving Hunter Biden, and “likely” in October, according to a sworn declaration by Twitter’s former head of site integrity, Yoel Roth. The warnings were so specific that Twitter immediately censored The Post’s scoop about Hunter Biden’s laptop on Oct. 14, 2020, citing its “hacked materials” policy, a move described on Saturday as “election interference” by Twitter’s new owner, Elon Musk. The extraordinary revelation for the first time lays bare how the FBI was involved in pre-bunking the story of the laptop, which...

    The FBI is conducting three times as many domestic terrorism investigations than it was five years ago, with 70 percent of its open cases focused on "civil unrest" and anti-government activity, according to FBI documents and government specialists. The Bureau has also quietly changed the general classification of white supremacy, antisemitism, abortion-, and anti-LGBTQI+-related extremism to "hate crimes" rather than "terrorism." Since terrorism remains the top national security priority, this has lowered the visibility and resources dedicated to those issues. The FBI considers all violent acts (and threats of violence) with a political motive to be terrorism, a senior government...

    Elon Musk half-delivered on his promise to tell all about Twitter’s censorship of The New York Post’s Hunter Biden laptop story before the 2020 election. What was missing were details of specific warnings we know the FBI made to Twitter about a Russian “hack and leak operation” involving Hunter during their weekly meetings with top executives of the social media giant in the days and weeks before The Post published its exclusive bombshell. We know that FBI Supervisory Special Agent Elvis Chan testified Tuesday in a lawsuit against the Biden administration brought by Republican attorneys that he organized those weekly...

    On Tuesday, lawyers from the offices of Attorneys General Eric Schmitt of Missouri and Jeff Landry of Louisiana deposed FBI Supervisory Special Agent Elvis Chan as part of their lawsuit against the Biden administration. That suit accuses high-ranking government officials of working with giant social media companies "under the guise of combating misinformation" to achieve greater censorship. Chan, who serves in the FBI’s San Francisco bureau, was questioned under oath by court order about his alleged "critical role" in "coordinating with social-media platforms relating to censorship and suppression of speech on their platforms." During the deposition, Chan said that he,...

    J6 political prisoner Jonathan Mellis warns he and other J6 defendants in the “Patriot Pod” of the DC Gulag are being tortured by “racist, hateful, and abusive correctional officers,” sexually assaulted and treated like animals for being Trump supporters. Mellis is pleading for help from the American people, in a letter to The Gateway Pundit. The treatment I have endured since my arrest has shaken my faith in humanity. Mellis, 34, was arrested in a pre-dawn FBI raid while visiting his parents at their home. “I was arrested on February 16, 2021, as if I were an Al Qaeda terrorist....

    The incoming chairman of the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday formally accused the FBI of meddling in the last four elections to the detriment of Republicans, citing the Russia collusion probe, the suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story and the raid on Donald Trump's home . Maybe it'd be nice if the FBI and the Justice Department just stayed out of it and let we the people decide who we think should represent us, who we think should lead us," he added. "That’s supposed to be how America works. "So this is the focus on the Judiciary Committee, the...

    FBI Director Chris Wray refused to say Tuesday whether FBI sources had dressed as Trump supporters and entered the U.S. Capitol ahead of protesters on January 6, 2021. Wray testified in front of the House Homeland Security Committee alongside Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and National Counterterrorism Center Director Christine Abizaid. During the hearing, Louisiana Rep. Clay Higgins (R) questioned Wray on the extent of the FBI’s involvement in the January 6 riot. “Did the FBI have confidential human sources embedded within the January 6 protesters on January 6 2021?” the Louisiana congressman asked. Confidential human sources are not FBI...

    A federal judge on Monday ruled in favor of deposing an FBI agent accused of "colluding" with social media companies to suppress the Hunter Biden laptop story. Judge Terry A. Doughty of the Western District of Louisiana ruled that FBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge Elvis Chan must be deposed under oath for his alleged involvement in coordinating with Meta to censor the Hunter Biden laptop story prior to the 2020 election.

    After the draft leak of the Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, violence, threats, and attacks against the pro-life movement skyrocketed. Yet this went largely unnoticed, while the abortion industry continued to claim that pro-life advocates are the real danger. Now, a new study is setting the record straight. According to the study from the Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC), there were 135 attacks against pro-life groups between May and September of 2022. During that same four-month period, there were just six attacks against abortion groups or supporters. “The bottom line is that after the Dobbs...

Though they are waiting for the midterm elections to pass before making major public moves, the DOJ is reportedly bringing on additional experienced prosecutors and preparing for a potential slew of indictments against major figures in Trump world, CNN reported, citing "sources familiar with the matter." "Now federal investigators are planning for a burst of post-election activity in Trump-related investigations," CNN reported. "That...

    Tom Barrack, Trump's longtime billionaire friend and 2016 fundraiser, has been acquitted on all charges related to accusations he lobbied Trump on behalf of the United Arab Emirates without registering as a foreign agent. He also stood accused of then lying to the FBI about those contacts. The jury deliberated for about two days at federal court in Brooklyn before finding Barrack not guilty. Prosecutors alleged Barrack had traded on his decades-long friendship with the then-president to give UAE officials access to and insider information on the Trump White House and 2016 campaign. Acting as a foreign agent without registering...
