Twelve Previous Hacks and Illegal Leaks of Confidential Information -- Which Twitter and Facebook Didn't Censor, Because They Were Anti-Trump

If these companies are permitted to stand as they are, America is over.

This is Turnkey Fascism and our own (supposedly) paid-off corporate-owned representatives have enabled it, and continue making excuses for why their supposed devotion to a corporate conception of "libertarianism" requires we go through a hundred year period of actual fascism.

The first step in any fascist takeover is shutting down opposition newspapers and censoring the news -- both of which Twitter is doing right now. Facebook hasn't shut down the Post yet, but it's censored the news.

Here are some of the past hacks and leaks our Tech Overlords had no problem with:

2. President Trump's Tax Returns

Last month, the New York Times published President Trump's personal tax returns, which it illegally obtained. Tax and all financial records are legally protected private information. It is a crime to release them. As accountant Ryan Ellis writes,

It is a federal crime for any federal, state, or local government employee to release a tax return without the consent of the taxpayer. Ditto for tax lawyers, CPAs, enrolled agents, and other tax professionals. Interestingly, it's also illegal to print or publish tax returns or information from them. Section 7213 of the Internal Revenue Code prescribes that each violation here is a felony punishable by $5,000 and/or five years in federal prison, plus the cost of prosecution. Federal employees so convicted are to lose their jobs.

This criminally leaked private information is still available all over Twitter and Facebook.

5. Donald Trump Jr. WikiLeaks Emails In 2017, corporate media reported that Donald Trump Jr. had received advance warning that WikiLeaks was about to release Hillary Clinton's emails. This was supposedly a smoking gun proving that President Trump and his campaign had coordinated with WikiLeaks to use stolen information to attack Clinton. Except it wasn't true.

It was subsequently found that the date on this email to Trump Jr. had been manipulated. In fact, he had only gotten the information at the same time the rest of the world did, when WikiLeaks publicly released Clinton's emails. There was no smoking gun. It was a false story.

It was suspicious from the beginning, as the initial reporting from MSNBC came from anonymous sources and had to be somehow obtained deceitfully, as Trump Jr. certainly didn't release his private emails. Twitter and Facebook did nothing to impede the spread of this unverifiable, hacked, and private information.

Yashar Ali notes another use of actually hacked emails: Republican donor Elliott Broidy's emails were hacked and leaded to unfriendly media outlets. He was probably hacked by a foreign state -- Qatar -- which opposes us in the Middle East.

The New York Times and WSJ knew these emails were hacked, but published them anyway.

And they're still available on Twitter!

If this is a policy, why is Twitter not enforcing it in Elliot Broidy's favor?

That may expose them to legal liability, even without any "clarification" of s.230.

Nick Short notes that twitter is now lying to you, telling you that a link to the New York Post might be a threat to your computer's security:

BTW, Twitter is down.

I wonder if it's because they've banned and censored so many posts and users that the system is running slow.
