The Big Tech purge continues.

Project Veritas was suspended from Twitter on Thursday after being censored by the social media platform for tweeting about Facebook censorship.

On Wednesday Twitter censored Project Veritas for exposing Facebook.

Twitter claimed that the organization violated their rules against “posting private information” with their reporting on Facebook Vice President of Integrity Guy Rosen stating that they are now freezing comments from users in places where their algorithms think there “may be” hate speech.

Update: James O’Keefe has responded to the suspension in a new video, stating that he will appeal the suspension and claiming that Twitter is applying a double standard to PV’s journalism:

    Biden’s DOJ Is Now Getting Involved with the Arizona Election Audit

    Published

    on

    The Biden administration on Wednesday expressed concerns about ballot security and voter intimidation as the Arizona state Senate authorizes a private audit of the 2020 election in Maricopa County.

    In a letter to Republican state Sen. Karen Fann, the Justice Department raised “two issues of potential noncompliance with federal laws” related to the audit.

    “The first issue relates to a number of reports suggesting that the ballots, elections systems, and election materials that are the subject of the Maricopa County audit are no longer under the ultimate control of state and local elections officials, are not being adequately safeguarded by contractors at an insecure facility, and are at risk of being lost, stolen, altered, compromised or destroyed,” Justice Department official Pamela Karlan wrote.

    Karlan also said the methods used by the group running the audit, Cyber Ninjas, raise concerns about “potential intimidation of voters.”

    A statement of work released by Cyber Ninjas said the firm has been working to “identify voter registrations that did not make sense, and then knock on doors to confirm if valid voters actually lived at the stated address,” according to Karlan.

    Karlan said the statement of work also indicates that Cyber Ninjas will select at least three precincts in Maricopa County with “a high number of anomalies” in order to “conduct an audit of voting history.”

    “Voters may be contacted through a ‘combination of phone calls and physical canvassing’ to ‘collect information of whether the individual voted in the election’ in November 2020,” Karlan wrote.

    “We would appreciate your response to the concerns described herein, including advising us of the steps that the Arizona Senate will take to ensure that violations of federal law do not occur,” the letter concluded.

    The letter was sent one day after KNXV-TV reported that Cyber Ninjas was requiring volunteers to sign a non-disclosure agreement in order to participate in the audit.

    In 2016, former President Donald Trump won Maricopa County (which encompasses the Phoenix metropolitan area) over Democrat Hillary Clinton by approximately 44,500 votes, or 2.8 percent of the vote.

    In 2020, President Joe Biden won the county by about 45,100 votes, or 2.2 percent of the vote.

    Despite Biden’s victory, Republicans carried every countywide office in Maricopa, save for sheriff (which was held by the incumbent Democrat), including flipping the county recorder and winning the open treasurer seat.

    Biden won Arizona overall by 10,457 votes (0.3 percent), the closest margin of any of the swing states that went for him.

    Despite numerous allegations of voting irregularities, no court has ruled that fraud affected the results of the 2020 election.

    A news release from the Arizona Senate Republicans in late March said the audit will include scanning all 2.1 million paper ballots cast to look for irregularities, conducting a full manual recount, investigating the registration rolls to ensure only eligible voters voted and performing a forensic audit of the electronic voting machines and systems used.

    The audit was originally slated to be completed by May 14. However, Arizona Senate audit liaison Ken Bennett, who served as Arizona’s secretary of state from 2009 to 2015, has signaled it may go longer.

    Arizona GOP chairwoman Kelli Ward — who is not involved in the audit, but is monitoring its progress — said in a video posted on Twitter on Sunday, “They want to do it, and they want to do it right.”

    “This audit is to actually give the Arizona voting public assurance that our elections are secure, fair and honest,” she said. “Who doesn’t want that?”

    WATCH: Biden Stumbles, Struggles to Speak for 41 Seconds Straight

    Published

    on

    President Joe Biden’s inability to think and speak clearly has raised questions about his health since his presidential campaign. Unfortunately, he is not showing any evidence that those concerns are misplaced.

    On Wednesday, Biden struggled to speak for 41 straight seconds during a speech in the White House State Dining Room. He was attempting to discuss the impact of the pandemic on the restaurant business, but it was hard to hear that message amid his stumbling.

    For nearly one minute of air time, Biden was slurring his words, mistaking millions for thousands and failing to effectively communicate any real point to the American people.

    WATCH:

    Conservative news outlet The Daily Wire responded to Biden’s struggles in a sarcastic tweet assuring followers that “Everything is normal.”

    After the first incident, Biden again appeared completely spaced out when answering a question from a reporter. He repeatedly paused for awkwardly long amounts of time, and when he did speak, his answer provided little to no actual substance.

    Elise Stefanik Fires Back Against ‘Sexist Smear’ from Nancy Pelosi, Calls Out Double Standard

    Published

    on

    New York Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik blasted California Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi following Pelosi’s comments Thursday toward Stefanik on “PBS NewsHour.”

    Pelosi was asked, “Any comment on Elise Stefanik?”

    Pelosi’s answer included the statement “That’s really just up to them. Maybe she’s more, shall we say, compliant?”

    Stefanik took to Twitter to highlight what she saw as a double standard.

    “A sick sexist smear from Pelosi who will lose her gavel in 551 days. Yet the media doesn’t bat an eye! Imagine if these words were uttered about a Dem woman? Would be outrage coverage & the Speaker would have to resign,” Stefanik tweeted.

    The question came as former President Donald Trump endorsed Stefanik on Wednesday to replace Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney as chair of the House Republican Conference.

    “Liz Cheney is a warmongering fool who has no business in Republican Party Leadership,” Trump wrote in a statement.

    “We want leaders who believe in the Make America Great Again movement, and prioritize the values of America First. Elise Stefanik is a far superior choice, and she has my COMPLETE and TOTAL Endorsement for GOP Conference Chair. Elise is a tough and smart communicator!” Trump added.

    Cheney criticized Trump earlier this week, claiming the “2020 presidential election was not stolen.”

    “This is about whether the Republican Party is going to perpetuate lies about the 2020 election and attempt to whitewash what happened on Jan 6. Liz will not do that. That is the issue,” Cheney spokesman Jeremy Adler shared in a statement provided to ABC News.

    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy joined in the criticism of Cheney, reportedly telling told “Fox & Friends” host Steve Doocy on Tuesday that he’s “had it” with Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, the third-highest-ranking Republican in the House.

    The off-air remarks came before an interview in which McCarthy discussed GOP representatives’ dissatisfaction with Cheney, according to Axios.

    “I think she’s got real problems,” McCarthy reportedly told Doocy.

    “I’ve had it with her. You know, I’ve lost confidence. … Well, someone just has to bring a motion, but I assume that will probably take place.”

    Laren Fine, a spokeswoman for House Minority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana, said, “House Republicans need to be solely focused on taking back the House in 2022 and fighting against Speaker Pelosi and President Biden’s radical socialist agenda,” according to The New York Times.

    “Elise Stefanik is strongly committed to doing that,” she added.

    Report: Gretchen Whitmer Used Private Jet Borrowed From Billionaires To Travel To Florida During COVID Crisis

    Published

    on

    Michigan’s Democrat governor, Gretchen Whitmer, reportedly asked a group of wealthy Detroit businessmen to borrow a private jet so that she could travel to Florida in March, just as Florida was struggling with a COVID-19 variant that Whitmer would later warn her own residents about.

    Detroit journalist Charlie LeDuff revealed Thursday on Deadline Detroit that Whitmer asked “businessmen have major dealings in and with the state of Michigan” for what appears to be a political favor, calling on the group to provide her a “private plane they share” so that she did not have to fly commercial.

    One of the businessmen told LeDuff that the group felt obligated to do as the governor asked.

    “We wondered why she reached out to us instead of booking a private charter,” the source told LeDuff. “You can’t tell a governor no. Who needs that kind of trouble?”

    “She said she was going to see her sick daddy, but that’s not a legitimate political expenditure,” an expert told LeDuff about the transaction. “What it is, is a political favor. She asked. She got on their plane. Now she owes them one.”

    “Had Whitmer booked a round trip flight from Lansing to West Palm Beach through a private charter company, it would likely have cost $10,000 to $20,000, or a whopping $40,000 for the actual jet she took, according to private jet websites. The latter is more than 25 percent of the governor’s salary — before taxes,” Deadline Detroit reported. “It is unclear whether Whitmer reimbursed the company – Air Eagle – which manages the aircraft owned by the businessmen.”

    Whitmer’s office told media after news of her jaunt to Florida broke last month that she did not spend taxpayer money on the trip, though they did admit that Whitmer spent several days in Florida, allegedly to care for her ailing father.

    A spokesperson for the governor initially said she spent just two days in Florida. LeDuff reported that records show she spent four days: March 12 through the 15th.

    “She flew on the businessmen’s Gulfstream G-280 twin jet. It was cold and clear on the morning of March 12 when she lifted off from Lansing and it was warm and sunny when she touched down in West Palm Beach at 9:37 a.m., federal flight records show,” Deadline Detroit noted. “She left West Palm Beach on Monday, March 15 at 4:37 p.m. She touched down at 7:01 p.m in Lansing.”

    Two weeks after returning from Florida, Whitmer warned Michigan residents to cancel any planned trips to the Sunshine State, citing evidence that a deadly COVID-19 variant was raging across Florida. In fact, Florida appears to have already been struggling with the variant at the time of Whitmer’s trip. Local news affiliates reported that, on March 15, the state had 750 known variant cases. On March 12th, the day Whitmer reportedly left Michigan, WINK noted that the dangerous COVID-19 variant was “taking over in Florida,”

    “Research finds the B.1.1.7 coronavirus variant is more transmissible and deadly. Florida has more cases than anywhere else in the country, with 690,” the outlet reported on March 12.

    Asked about LeDuff’s report Thursday, Whitmer said little beyond what she said when news of the trip broke initially — that she does not reveal the details of her travel out of concern for her own security.

    “I’ve said everything I’m going to say about my trip to check on my father,” she told a local reporter, per Deadline Detroit. “I’ve got nothing to add.

    “We don’t discuss my travel. I have received an incredible number of death threats over the last year and a half,” she said. “There are a lot of reasons we don’t discuss how I travel and when I travel.”

    As for Whitmer’s father, he appears to be alive and well — but is now in Michigan, having apparently traveled from Florida.

    “[Richard Whitmer, the governor’s father] appears to have made a miraculous comeback. Great Lakes News, a website that is often critical of Whitmer, and is also a statewide radio network with 35-plus affiliates, reported last week that her father was seen in the parking lot of a Lansing-area mall, getting into a brand new Tesla,” Deadline Detroit added.

    Twitter Quickly Suspends Trump’s New ‘From the Desk Of’ Account

    Published

    on

    That didn’t take long.

    On Tuesday, former President Donald Trump, banned from Twitter shortly after the Capitol riot, revealed his new website, “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump.” An account called @DJTDesk “ emerged on the social media site shortly after,” The New York Post reported.

    “By Wednesday evening, though, Twitter had suspended the account,” the paper said.

    Team Trump said the new website is meant to serve as “a place to speak freely and safely,” but it would also give the former president a platform after losing both Twitter and Facebook.

    Twitter defended the suspension, with a spokesperson telling the Post, “As stated in our ban evasion policy, we’ll take enforcement action on accounts whose apparent intent is to replace or promote content affiliated with a suspended account.”

    Last week, Twitter announced it has no plans to allow Trump to use its site. On Wednesday, Facebook’s oversight board announced that Trump will remain suspended indefinitely. The board upheld Trump’s ban from Facebook and Instagram, but added that it was “not appropriate” for Facebook to impose the “indeterminate and standard less penalty of indefinite suspension.”

    “The Board has upheld Facebook’s decision on January 7, 2021, to restrict then-President Donald Trump’s access to posting content on his Facebook page and Instagram account,” the board announced Wednesday. But the board gave Facebook six months to review the “arbitrary” ban, saying in a Twitter post that the company “violated its own rules.”

    Meanwhile, Twitter CFO Ned Segal said there have been “no changes” regarding Trump’s status of being permanently suspended. “Well, there has been no changes to anything we have shared in the past around the former president’s account,” Segal said.

    “When you step back and think about our policies, we want to work hard to be consistent, to be transparent so people know exactly what to expect from us,” Siegel added. “We don’t have an oversight board like that. Our team is accountable for the decisions that we make.”

    The former Republican president was suspended from both platforms after the Capitol riot, after alleged Trump supporters breached the building and clashed with Capitol Police. Trump has since found a way around the two sites, sending out statements on issues that draw immediate coverage.

    The former president on Wednesday raged against the decision by the two social media giants, as well as Google.

    “What Facebook, Twitter, and Google have done is a total disgrace and an embarrassment to our Country,” Trump said in a statement. “Free Speech has been taken away from the President of the United States because the Radical Left Lunatics are afraid of the truth, but the truth will come out anyway, bigger and stronger than ever before. The People of our Country will not stand for it! These corrupt social media companies must pay a political price, and must never again be allowed to destroy and decimate our Electoral Process.”

    “Facebook cannot make up the rules as it goes, and anyone concerned about its power should be concerned about allowing this,” the board said in a statement. “Having clear rules that apply to all users and Facebook is essential for ensuring the company treats users fairly.”
