Sen. Josh Hawley Quizzes Twitter CEO On Uncovered Blacklist Twitter Has Denied Exists

Sen. Josh Hawley wants answers about Twitter’s lies about shadowbanning.



Last week, it became clear that Twitter has been lying for years about shadowbanning and blacklisting conservatives. Now Sen. Josh Hawley wants answers.

Last week, Twitter suffered a huge attack when many vaunted blue checkmarked users had their accounts hacked with messages about Bitcoins. It was all a money scam, but it had the side effect of proving that Twitter has been lying about shadowbanning its users.

Conservatives have said that their accounts frequently become invisible to other users, or their tweets go nowhere at all. Users have also said that their posts are put in the shadows. Twitter has always claimed that the accusations of shadowbanning are false. They just don’t do it, they have always claimed.

But during the hack, screenshots of a Twitter administrator’s panel leaked and they show the tools used to do just what conservatives have always accused it of doing.

Now, Sen. Josh Hawley (R, MO) wants some answers from Twitter’s CEO, Jack Dorsey.

“One such screenshot indicates that Twitter employs tools allowing it to append ‘Search Blacklist,’ ‘Trends Blacklist,’ ‘Bounced,’ and ‘ReadOnly’ flags to user accounts. Given your insistence in testimony to Congress that Twitter does not engage in politically biased ‘shadowbanning’ and the public interest in Twitter’s moderation practices, it is notable that Twitter reportedly suspended user accounts sharing screenshots of this panel,” Hawley wrote in his letter.

Hawley wants Dorsey to “define the terms ‘Search Blacklist,’ ‘Trends Blacklist,’ ‘Bounced,’ and ‘ReadOnly.’ Please also explain, for each term, whether such flags on user accounts affect the visibility of tweets within users’ timelines.”

“Please explain the rules that Twitter uses to implement such flags on user accounts and tweets and the process by which Twitter ensures that such implementation is not conducted in a politically biased manner. As you no doubt recall, you have testified to Congress that ‘We believe strongly in being impartial, and we strive to enforce our rules impartially. We do not shadowban anyone based on political ideology.’ This statement indicates that your use of these internal systems is governed by ‘rules’ rather than mere discretion,” Hawley added.

These are excellent questions.

Election Fraud: Twitter Employee Who Banned Trump Campaign Video is a Kamala Harris Operative

News has emerged that the Twitter employee who banned Trump’s campaign video is a Kamala Harris operative.



Looks like Twitter is once again working for the Democrats. News has emerged that the Twitter employee who banned Trump’s campaign video is a Kamala Harris operative.

How can Twitter let an avowed enemy of President Trump be the one in charge of censoring him?

The Twitter employee, Nick Pacilio, fully admits on his Twitter profile that he is a former Kamala Harris campaign staffer.

It was Pacilio who proclaimed Trump’s campaign video a “violation” of Twitter’s ever evolving “rules” and that his video was “misinformation.”

The video contained the president’s claims that children are “nearly immune” to the coronavirus. But Pacilio claimed that this was false.

Pacilio is a liar. The president’s claim is 100 percent fact. The statistics are clear. In every corner of the world, children make up a very tiny number of coronavirus victims. By the numbers, children make up only about 1 percent of the coronavirus hospitalizations, and less than one percent of deaths.

COVID-19 fatalities in children are extremely rare. So, Twitter is wrong.

No. Not merely wrong. Twitter’s left-wing activist is simply a liar. Trump’s video was not “misinformation.”

Twitter is once again acting as an agent for the Democrat Party.

Twitter Bans Thousands of QAnon Accounts, But Continues to Allow Pedophiles

This week, ahead of the 2020 elections, Twitter performed a mass ban of thousands of users who posted QAnon theories.



This week, ahead of the 2020 elections, Twitter performed a mass ban of thousands of users who posted QAnon theories. Yet the platform still allows pedophiles and Islamist terrorists to use Twitter without a problem.

On Tuesday, Twitter began deleting the accounts of thousands of QAnon conspiracy buffs claiming that their posts caused “offline harm.”

“We’ve been clear that we will take strong enforcement action on behavior that has the potential to lead to offline harm,” Twitter said on Tuesday.

“In line with this approach, this week we are taking further action on so-called ‘QAnon’ activity across the service,” the company statement added.

“We will permanently suspend accounts Tweeting about these topics that we know are engaged in violations of our multi-account policy, coordinating abuse around individual victims, or are attempting to evade a previous suspension.”

Consequently, the social media company banned over 7,000 accounts and are now blocking “URLs associated with QAnon from being shared on Twitter.”

Twitter is clearly intensifying its censorship crackdown against Trump supporters heading into November’s election.

Meanwhile, as Big League Politics recently reported, Twitter goes out of its way to be a welcoming place for child rapists. Indeed, last year Twitter actually changed its terms of service specifically to allow pedophiles to talk about “attraction toward minors.”

“Discussions related to child sexual exploitation as a phenomenon or attraction towards minors are permitted, provided they don’t promote or glorify child sexual exploitation in any way,” Twitter’s terms of service now reads.

Twitter even announced that they had changed their policy to allow pedophiles to post photos of children in various stages of nudity.

FL Candidate for Congress Laura Loomer Calls for Arrest of Twitter’s Jack Dorsey for Abetting Antifa Terrorism

Florida congressional candidate Laura Loomer is calling for the arrest of Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey for abetting the Antifa terrorists.



Florida congressional candidate Laura Loomer is calling for the arrest of Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey for aiding and abetting the Antifa terrorists by allowing his platform to be used to organize their terrorist activities.

“After censoring President Donald Trump’s tweets about violent riots, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey put #BlackLivesMatter as the header on the official Twitter account,” Loomer wrote on the alternate social media platform called Parler.

Screenshot of the Twitter posting:

Loomer went on saying, “Jack Dorsey is aiding and abetting terrorist organizations by allowing for ANTIFA terrorists and Islamic terrorists to have access where they are promoting anarchy and lethal riots.”

“In the middle of a national emergency, he is also censoring the commander in chief who is posting about the army and national guard responding to the riots,” she pointed out.

Loomer added that there is a case to have Dorsey tried for abetting the organizing capabilities of the domestic terror outfit known as Antifa.

“For this, Jack Dorsey should immediately have his home raided by the feds Roger Stone style and be charged with inciting acts of domestic terrorism in America,” Loomer exclaimed.

She concluded exclaiming, “It’s time for Jack Dorsey to be prosecuted for aiding and abetting terrorists and committing TREASON. #LockHimUp”

Indeed, last weekend, President Trump noted that Antifa must be official recognized as a domestic terrorist outfit.

Thirty Examples of Twitter’s Bias Against Conservatives

Twitter has been secretly eliminating the free speech of conservatives for years. Here are 30 examples to prove it…



Twitter officially altered its public stance on its operations this week by beginning to openly and admittedly censor conservatives. But it has been doing so in secret and in public denial for years.

I, myself, was a victim of Twitter’s crusade t destroy conservatives. I had a Twitter account for ten years when last year I wrote “transgenderism is a mental disorder,” and I was summarily banned from Twitter with no recourse.

Why was I banned? They claimed I was “inciting violence against transgender people.” Clearly, they are liars. I never called for any attacks on transgenders. All I said is that they have a mental disorder.

But I was banned, anyway.

The Media Research Center recently posted a list of more than thirty examples of anti-conservative bias at Twitter that is worth bookmarking in case you want examples in your arguments with leftists.

Here are the first ten examples:

What Twitter Has Done to Trump:

1. Fact-checking Trump’s tweets

A tweet from the president that discussed mail-in ballots was labeled as an “unsubstantiated claim” by Twitter. When Trump tweeted, “There is NO WAY (ZERO!) that Mail-In Ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent,” a bright blue sentence was added by the social media platform at the bottom of the tweet. The link said, “Get the facts about mail-in ballots.” The label led to a Twitter Events page, which said, “Trump makes unsubstantiated claim that mail-in ballots will lead to voter fraud.”

The statement continued, “These claims are unsubstantiated, according to CNN, Washington Post and others. Experts say mail-in ballots are very rarely linked to voter fraud.”

“From their bogus ‘fact check’ of @realDonaldTrump to their ‘head of site integrity’ displaying his clear hatred towards Republicans, Twitter’s blatant bias has gone too far,” tweeted Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel. She linked to The New York Times article headlined “Error and Fraud at Issue as Absentee Voting Rises.”

2. Censorship of pro-Life Team Trump videos

Twitter’s warning and interstitial, or filter, used to keep viewers from unknowingly seeing inappropriate videos was applied to a Trump campaign pro-life promo. Following Trump’s speech at the March for Life, his pro-life campaign video appeared to have been given an erroneous label/restriction by Twitter. The label was removed soon after Twitter admitted the error.

3. No enforcement of policy for Democrats

The bias against Trump has become so egregious that even The Hill and The Washington Post are calling it out. “According to emails reviewed by The Hill, the Trump campaign flagged new content on Twitter that it said had been deceptively edited,” The Hill’s Jonathan Easly wrote March 16. One video in question was shared by Mike Bloomberg’s former senior adviser Tim O’Brien and featured audio clips of Trump’s words spliced together and taken out of context, set to a rising graph showing “Confirmed Coronavirus Cases in US.” Former Vice President Joe Biden tweeted a video with similar language.

Even The Post’s video editor for The Fact Checker Meg Kelly wrote that Trump “never says that the virus itself is a hoax, and although the Biden camp included the word ‘their,’ the edit does not make clear to whom or what Trump is referring.”

4. Labeling simple photos of Trump as “sensitive content”

NASCAR star Hailie Deegan posed for a picture with President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump at the Daytona 500 on Feb. 16. After she posted it to Twitter, some of her followers noted that the photo was covered by Twitter’s “sensitive content” filter. Memer and influencer Carpe Donktum (known for his memes that have been retweeted by Trump) tweeted a screenshot of Deegan’s post as it appeared on his feed.

5. Removing Trump’s Twitter account

President Trump’s personal Twitter account had disappeared in 2017 and was nowhere to be found until it was restored 11 minutes later. The account reappeared without explanation until Twitter’s official electoral and government relations account provided a bizarre explanation that it was “due to human error by a Twitter employee.”

How Twitter Has Treated Other Conservatives:

6. Preventing a pro-life election ad

Before Twitter banned all political ads, it blocked a campaign ad by Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) for addressing the “sale” of aborted baby parts in the name of research. While she was allowed to tweet the ad, Twitter prohibited her from paying to promote the ad to a larger audience.

In the ad, Rep. Blackburn announced that she was running for U.S. Senate. To appeal to her conservative constituents, she cited her work fighting abortion.

7. Senator Mitch McConnell’s campaign video

It should come as no surprise that the official campaign Twitter account for Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) was suspended for sharing a video of the violent threats being made against the senator. Multiple people on Twitter were also suspended for sharing that video, including the Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra. Twitter eventually overturned this decision but only after numerous complaints.

8. Candace Owens censored

Conservative commentator Candace Owens had her Twitter account suspended for encouraging Americans to defy stay-at-home rules. A Twitter spokesperson said that Owens’s tweet response to Democrat Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s stay-at-home policies encouraging the citizens of Michigan to “stand up” against Whitmer “violated the platform’s COVID-19 misinformation policy, ‘specifically around heightened-risk health claims,’” reported The Hill. Owens’s tweet encouraged Michiganders to “Open your businesses” and “[g]o to work.”

9. Trump’s attorney censored

Trump’s attorney Rudy Guiliani’s tweet said, “Hydroxychloroquine has been shown to have a 100% effective rate treating COVID-19. Yet Democrat [Michigan Governor] Gretchen Whitmer is threatening doctors who prescribe it. If Trump is for something- Democrats are against it. They’re okay with people dying if it means opposing Trump.” His tweet was in response to Whitmer, who challenged Trump in a press conference on March 26, 2020.

10. Turning Point founder Charlie Kirk censored

Turning Point founder Charlie Kirk tweeted a similar sentiment. He said, “Fact: Hydroxychloroquine has been shown to have a 100% effective rate treating COVID-19[.] Yet Democrat Gretchen Whitmer is threatening doctors who prescribe it[.] If Trump is for something—Democrats are against it[.] They’re ok with people dying if it means opposing Trump[.] SICK!”

A Twitter spokesperson confirmed that both Guiliani’s and Kirk’s accounts were temporarily locked for violations of the Twitter rules in reference to COVID-19….

Twitter Admits Trump’s Tweet About Rioters Didn’t Break Rules

On Friday, Twitter censored President Donald Trump’s tweet about the rioters in Minneapolis, now it admits no rules were broken.



On Friday morning, Twitter censored President Donald Trump’s tweet about the rioters in Minneapolis, but now the social media giant has admitted that the tweet didn’t even really break their rules.

An anguished president jumped to Twitter on Friday morning to say, “These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts.”

But Twitter put a warning on the tweet and then limited it so no one could see it.

Twitter claimed that Trump was “glorifying violence.” But the truth is, he was DECRYING violence, not calling for it.

The White House was outraged.

Trump soon put out a second tweet making his point explicit:

Looting leads to shooting, and that’s why a man was shot and killed in Minneapolis on Wednesday night – or look at what just happened in Louisville with 7 people shot. I don’t want this to happen, and that’s what the expression put out last night means

It was spoken as a fact, not as a statement. It’s very simple, nobody should have any problem with this other than the haters, and those looking to cause trouble on social media. Honor the memory of George Floyd!

After the White House and the President slammed Twitter for its outrageous action, the social media giant reversed itself and said it was wrong, the tweet it censored was reviewed and Twitter “could not identify any violations of the Twitter rules.”

Yet, they are still censoring the tweet…

The President’s son, Donald Trump Jr., also added his thoughts, saying: “Because they’re leftist hacks trying to manipulate an election… and they’re also full of crap.”
