House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy blasted the FBI and Big Tech as Orwellian Friday — after Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg admitted that the social media platform was wrong to censor The Post’s bombshell reporting on Hunter Biden’s laptop ahead of the 2020 election. “The FBI colluded with Big Tech to silence news stories weeks before the 2020 election in an attempt to control your access to information,” McCarthy tweeted late Thursday. The California Republican then vowed to “hold all of them accountable.” “Democrats in Congress have been intentionally ignoring the facts,” he seethed. “When Republicans are back in charge, we will hold all of them accountable.”
Who sent the FBI to see Zuckerberg with the lie Hunter Biden’s laptop was Russian disinformation?
Mark Zuckerberg tells Joe Rogan FBI warned Facebook of ‘Russian propaganda’ before Hunter Biden laptop story
Zuckerberg claims he was duped by the FBI into helping Biden win in 2020. But Zuckerberg and wife invested 400 million in “socialist get out the vote” efforts.
Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg revealed that the FBI approached Facebook warning the platform about “Russian propaganda” ahead of the bombshell Hunter Biden laptop story leading up to the 2020 presidential election.
Appearing on Thursday’s installment of “The Joe Rogan Experience,” Zuckerberg was asked about Facebook’s suppression of the New York Post’s reporting that shed light on the shady foreign business dealings of the son of then-candidate Joe Biden.
Zuckerberg began by stressing how Facebook took a “different path” than Twitter, which completely censored the Post’s reporting while Facebook limited its reach on the platform.
“Basically, the background here is the FBI, I think, basically came to us- some folks on our team and was like, ‘Hey, just so you know, like, you should be on high alert… We thought that there was a lot of Russian propaganda in the 2016 election. We have it on notice that, basically, there’s about to be some kind of dump of that’s similar to that. So just be vigilant,'” Zuckerberg told host Joe Rogan.
Let’s look at the FBI’s lame-ass response…
FBI seem to be trained Marxists… listen to their bullshit…
The day after Mark Zuckerberg said that Facebook limited a polarizing story ahead of the 2020 election because of an FBI warning, the federal agency said it, “The FBI can only alert a private entity of a potential threat, not require it to take action.”
Texas political science professor Emil Ficker told JournoNews, “It’s clear the FBI is totally dominated by the socialists. Still today, they refuse to admit the original New York Post story wasn’t Russian disinformation. Basically, the FBI doubled down claiming that the original report of Hunter Biden’s laptop was, or it still, a potential threat to the American people. Words mean things and look at the FBI response. They are in denial and they are saying that nothing has changed. People know they are captured. if they weren’t committed Marxist drones they’d realize that we know and back off. They would mitigate their ideology, but they didn’t. They can’t. If any person in the FBI admit they cheated to have Biden elected, they’ll be purged and have to work in the private sector. A real job would be the worst thing that could happen to them. Basically that is what I mean by captured, they are a captured agency.”
Professor Ficker added, “And, look at the second part of their lame-ass response. They point out that they didn’t force Facebook to deceive the voters. But they DID deceive Zuckerberg, and there isn’t any doubt about it; they don’t feel particularly guilty about it. They must be telling themselves they were just doing their job, and that’s frightening. So, what the FBI are implying that it’s okay to deceive media, or organizations or particular individuals. What’s next for the FBI; extortion, bribery, threats of arrest? This mentality is right out of Komsomol training, but it’s here and it’s now. My expertise is totalitarianism, basically the Soviet Union and I believe I recognize the argumentation. The first lesson about socialism in the Komsomol system was, ‘The end justifies the means.’ This is what we are up against… a grownups in the FBI apparently trained in Marxism the same way Soviet children were trained.”
Facebook duped by the FBI into helping Biden win
Does this mean Biden isn’t a legitimate president?
Are all the Biden usurpations now invalid?
The controversy began when the New York Post published a story in October 2020, a month before the presidential election in which Joe Biden defeated Donald Trump. The right-leaning paper reported that computer repair shop owner John Paul Mac Isaac said Hunter Biden had dropped off a damaged laptop in 2019 and never returned to pick it up.
The laptop contained a 2015 email from Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma, to Hunter Biden seeking a meeting with his father, who was then vice president, according to the Post.
Former President Trump and some of his allies seized on the report at the time as showing evidence that Hunter was involved in questionable business dealings while his father served as vice president. Some of the emails on the laptop have since been confirmed as authentic, but no wrongdoing from the president or his son has been confirmed.
The story was ignored by other media outlets and Twitter blocked links to it from being shared on the platform. The controversy was renewed this spring when The New York Times confirmed the existence of emails and that Hunter Biden was being investigated by federal law enforcement.
Zuckerberg said the story appeared less in Facebook’s news feed and “fewer people saw it and would have otherwise.” He didn’t say by how much, but told Rogan it was “meaningful.”
Meta said on Twitter that Facebook “lifted the demotion” of the story after seven days when it wasn’t rated false by independent fact-checkers.
The company also referred to remarks Zuckerberg made to the Senate Commerce Committee in 2020 when he said he had not been specifically warned about the New York Post story by the FBI but instead had been told to be on heightened alert about election interference.
Mark Zuckerberg’s Explanation of Hunter Biden Censorship Enrages MAGA World
Conservatives blasted Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg for revealing that his social network suppressed reporting about Hunter Biden’s laptop in the lead-up to the 2020 presidential election.
“This isn’t just insane, it’s election interference,” Republican Representative Andrew Clyde of Georgia tweeted. He added that Zuckerberg should be required to testify under oath before the House Oversight Committee.
“Mark Zuckerberg flippantly admitting that Facebook censored the TRUE Hunter Biden laptop story (supposedly at the request of the FBI) should alarm every American regardless of their political party,” GOP Representative August Pfluger of Texas said in a tweet. “The truth matters. Free speech matters. We deserve answers.”
Republican Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri took to Twitter to renew criticism of the FBI’s handling of its investigation into Russia’s actions during Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, adding that the FBI “preemptively warned Facebook off Hunter Biden laptop reporting.”
Dave Arnold, spokesperson for Facebook’s parent company Meta, referred Newsweek to a series of tweets responding to the criticism of Zuckerberg.
NPR: How Private Money From Facebook’s CEO Saved The 2020 Election
When NPR said “Zuckerberg’s money saved the 2020 election”, they weren’t kidding.
Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced on Tuesday that he and his wife have donated an additional $100 million to a “safe elections” project run by the non-profit Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL), bringing their total contributions to that project to $350 million since September 1.
Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, also announced a separate $50 million personal contribution in September to another non-profit, the Center for Election Innovation and Research (CEIR), to “assist [state] election officials as they seek to inform voters about their voting options and any changes [due to the coronavirus pandemic], educate them about how they can successfully ensure their ballot is received and counted, and bolster transparency and legitimacy.”
Critics say the CTCL project’s grants look a lot more like socialist “Get-out-the-Vote” (GOTV) efforts in major cities around the country than good government efforts to protect the integrity of the electoral process of all Americans, regardless of their party affiliation.
Notably, Zuckerberg and Chan made the $400 million in total contributions to the CTCL and CEIR with their own personal funds, and not through their Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI), a Redwood City, California-based limited liability company Zuckerberg and Chan control and funded with a pledged $45 billion investment from Facebook stock they own. (In 2020 Forbes Magazine estimated Zuckerberg’s net worth at $97 billion.)
“The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative was founded in 2015 to leverage technology, community-driven solutions and collaboration to help solve some of society’s toughest challenges. Our mission is to build a more inclusive, just, and healthy future for everyone,” the organization’s website says.
Former Barack Obama campaign manager David Plouffe served as CZI head of policy and advocacy from 2017 until October 2019, when he “stepp[ed] back from day-to-day operations into a new part-time role as a strategist in residence to help guide the organization’s ongoing issues-based policy work. David has decided to make this transition in part to make time for non-CZI endeavors,” according to a CZI statement released at the time.
The leftwing media has the White House so NOW they tell the truth
New York Post possibly the only true journalistic newspaper remaining…
The New York Post story was released just weeks before the presidential election between Joe Biden and Donald Trump, which Mr Biden won. It claimed that a laptop, abandoned in a repair shop by Hunter Biden, contained emails which included details of Hunter introducing a Ukrainian energy tycoon to his father and arranging a meeting. There is no record on Mr Biden’s schedule that such a meeting ever took place.
The original Hunter Biden laptop story is no longer controversial. The hard drive at its centre was provided to the New York Post by Donald Trump’s own lawyer, Rudy Giuliani.
Don’t be confused about why The Washington Post changed its tune this week, admitting that the Hunter Biden laptop is the real deal, or why The New York Times ’fessed up last month: Reality forced their hand, and they can’t downplay the scandal’s impact on President Joe Biden without acknowledging the facts. — Emil Ficker
Washington Post has admitted…
More than a year after the story appeared, the Washington Post conducted its own analysis and concluded the laptop and some emails were likely to be authentic – but the majority of data could not be verified due to “sloppy handling of the data”.
The paper said two security experts used cryptographic signatures from Google and other technology companies to validate nearly 22,000 emails from 2009 to 2019, including messages related to Hunter Biden’s controversial overseas business dealings.
Some verified emails involved a deal President Biden’s son pursued with the CEFC China Energy conglomerate for which he was paid nearly $5 million, according to the Washington Post.
Other verified emails related to his work for the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings, for which Hunter Biden was paid as much as $83,333 or a month, or $1 million a year.
The New York Times admitted…
Other once-sceptical news organisations such as the New York Times have agreed at least some of the emails are genuine.
First, the New York Times decides more than a year later that Hunter Biden’s business woes are worthy of a story. Then, deep in the piece, in passing, it notes that Hunter’s laptop is legitimate.
“People familiar with the investigation said prosecutors had examined emails between Mr. Biden, Mr. Archer and others about Burisma and other foreign business activity,” the Times writes. “Those emails were obtained by The New York Times from a cache of files that appears to have come from a laptop abandoned by Mr. Biden in a Delaware repair shop. The email and others in the cache were authenticated by people familiar with them and with the investigation.”
Authenticated!!! You don’t say. You mean, when a newspaper actually does reporting on a topic and doesn’t just try to whitewash coverage for Joe Biden, it discovers it’s actually true?
