  • Twitter: EU Warns Musk Not to Restore Free Speech Protections After Calls from Clinton and Other Democratic Leaders

    11/02/2022 12:14:30 PM PDT · by monkeyshine · 97 replies ^ | Nov 2, 2022 | Jonathan Turley
    We have been discussing how Democratic leaders like Hillary Clinton called on foreign companies to pass censorship laws to prevent Elon Musk from restoring free speech protections on Twitter. The EU has responded aggressively to warn Musk not to allow greater free speech or face crippling fines and even potential criminal enforcement. After years of using censorship-by-surrogates in social media companies, Democratic leaders seem to have rediscovered good old-fashioned state censorship. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) declared Musk’s pledge to restore free speech values on social media as threatening Democracy itself. She has promised that “there are going to be...
  • Disclosed: How Obama Administration Officials Conducted Shadow Diplomacy With Iran To Undermine Trump

    Senior Obama administration officials engaged in a secret meeting with Iran in 2018 as part of an effort to undermine the Trump administration's diplomatic push to isolate the hardline regime, according to an internal State Department document. As the Trump administration worked to increase economic pressure on Iran in 2018, a delegation of "U.S. former ambassadors," including John Kerry, held a secret, "off-the-record" meeting with former Iranian foreign minister Javad Zarif at his residence in New York City, according to a State Department memo unearthed this week as part of a lawsuit brought to compel the release of this information....

    Barack Obama’s former Secretary of State, John Kerry was secretly meeting with Iranian officials to salvage Iran’s nuclear weapons program. After the news broke last week, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee called on G-men to arrest John Kerry for his treasonous acts. Kerry was working against the Trump administration to salvage the Iranian nuclear deal.In May of 2018 former Obama Secretary of State was seen dining with several Iranian regime officials.  Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Trump’s claim that John Kerry violated the Logan Act is “true.”“It’s true. I mean I was there in Munich when I saw not only Kerry...

    Iran's foreign minister might be lying, but Kerry’s record of appeasement, closeness to Zarif, and disdain for Israel give reason to think otherwise.Maybe we should be giving John Kerry the benefit of the doubt. After all, why wouldn’t Americans take the word of a former secretary of state over that of Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, an official of a country that is an open adversary of the United States? Since the history of American negotiations with Iran largely consists of lies told by the mouthpieces of the Islamist regime, there’s good reason to be skeptical of anything that comes...
  • Remember When Trump Accused Kerry of Violating the Logan Act? Uh-Oh

    Ya can’t make it up. Here – right here – is then-President Trump accusing then-former Secretary of State John Kerry of violating the Logan Act: The Logan Act, to remind, was passed in the long-ago dawn of the Republic in 1799 – when John Adams was busy being the second President of the United States! To crib from Wikipedia, the Logan Act “criminalizes negotiation by unauthorized American citizens with foreign governments having a dispute with the United States. The intent behind the Act is to prevent unauthorized negotiations from undermining the government’s position.” Violation of the Logan Act is a...

    A Washington Times report indicates John Kerry and Robert Malley, two Biden administration officials who served under former President Barack Obama, “colluded” with Iran to undermine the Trump administration’s efforts at diplomacy. Fox News, who defines the effort as “shadow diplomacy,” explains that they “had meetings with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif during the Trump administration that were orchestrated to undermine” Trump. An unnamed former senior U.S. official told the Washington Times that there were face-to-face meetings between Zarif and influential Democrats in 2017, 2018 and 2019. Kerry and Malley served as key U.S. negotiators of the 2015 Joint Comprehensive...

    Former State Department envoy says conduct 'unbelievable' Iranian refugee and former Trump official Ellie Cohanim slammed John Kerry on Wednesday, calling the former secretary of state's backdoor meetings with Iran during Trump’s presidency "anti-American" and an attempt to undermine the administration’s foreign policy stances. During an appearance on "Fox and Friends," the former State Department special envoy called the Biden administration’s talks with Iran to reenter the nuclear deal "diplomatic malpractice" and urged them to stop making unilateral concessions and instead increase demands on the Iranian regime. "What exactly was it that John Kerry was telling them - just ignore...

    President Trump in 2019 sought to open a back channel of communication with top Iranian officials and saw the U.N. General Assembly meeting in September as a potential opportunity to defuse escalating tension with Tehran, but the effort failed. Two months earlier, however, a different back channel was thriving in New York. Iran’s smooth, English-speaking foreign minister, Javad Zarif, met with Robert Malley, who was President Obama’s Middle East adviser, in an apparent bid to undermine the Trump team and lay the groundwork for post-Trump relations. The attempt at counterdiplomacy offers a window into the deep relationships Mr. Zarif forged...

    Michael Flynn and the Department of Justice should not allow Judge Emmet Sullivan’s final irrational and unhinged act of judicial defiance to go unanswered. On Dec. 8, federal Judge Emmet Sullivan dismissed as moot the criminal charge against Michael Flynn following President Trump’s pardon of the retired lieutenant general. Those outraged over the vindicative and unjust targeting of President Trump’s former national security advisor by the Obama-Biden administration and then the special counsel’s office celebrated the conclusion of the case. Yet Judge Sullivan’s dismissal came in the form of a vindictive, unconstitutional advisory opinion, designed to convict Flynn of a...

    Joe Biden told reporters on Tuesday that it is “an embarrassment” that President Trump has not yet conceded the election. While the media has declared Biden the “president-elect,” several battleground states, including Georgia, Pennsylvania, Arizona, and Nevada are still counting and reanalyzing ballots and counting procedures. RealClearPolitics lists Biden as receiving 259 electoral votes, 11 short of the 70 needed to capture the presidency. CNN claims Biden has 279 votes, while Fox News is more robust, awarding Biden 290 votes. Nevertheless, Biden said it is “an embarrassment” that his opponent has not given up despite the conflicting opinions and legal...

    This is the exact same scenario that Obama advisers accused Gen. Flynn of being in =========================================================================== Former Obama deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes admitted Monday that Joe Biden is already speaking with foreign leaders as if he is the next President, a move that some believe to be a breach of the Logan Act, the same law that President Trump’s former national security adviser Gen. Mike Flynn was prosecuted under. Rhodes made the comments during an MSNBC interview in which he slammed Trump for contesting the election: .@brhodes: Biden is already “having phone calls” with foreign leaders about “the...

    The ink hasn't even dried on the fake ballots, and the Biden team is already up to its old tricks. By their antics, you'd think they thought they were back in office again. When it comes to doing a job on the American people, Old Joe has proven that corruption never sleeps. One thing you'll have to say for Joe Biden: he knows his history. After all, he was there for the greater part of it. He's now violating laws that date back to the 1700s. The Logan Act, forbidding interactions between foreign governments and common citizens, seems to have...

    Can someone please fire Christopher Wray already? Please? – Jeffrey Jensen, the U.S. attorney for Eastern Missouri assigned by AG William Barr to review the DOJ’s despicable conduct of the Mike Flynn frame-up case earlier this year, came through again today with the revelation of more potentially exculpatory documents that had been withheld from Flynn’s lawyers by the FBI. The documents include handwritten notes from both FBI Super-Duper Agent and aspiring Latin Lover Peter Strzok and Deputy Assistant Attorney General Tashina Gauhar related to the January 25, 2017 meeting in which Strzok and fellow FBI agent Joe Pientka attempted to...

    Today, Flynn’s legal team also released Strzok’s notes regarding a meeting between Obama, Biden, Comey, Sally Yates and Susan Rice. Those notes appear to show several important things: Comey said the Flynn calls with the Russian ambassador “appear legit.” Obama ordered Comey to “look at things.” Obama directed that “the right people” investigate Flynn. Biden appeared to raise the Logan Act. Well, if it was “legit” then why “look at things”? If it was “legit,” why would Biden mention the Logan Act? These notes raise legitimate questions. For example, did Obama and Biden deliberately take steps in the final hours...

The previously sealed document also says that former President Barack Obama told top members of his administration that “the right people” should investigate Flynn.
