Twitter File Tweets Confess Rigging 2020 Election
By Harold Pease, Ph.D.
They thought Twitter secure, a place where government (Department of Homeland Security DHS, and FBI agents in particular), Big Tech, Big Media, Democrats, and the Deep State, could speak freely to coconspirators to overthrow the government of the United States, more specifically its popularly serving and elected president. They succeeded in removing Donald J. Trump from the White House—a coup. America would never know and all future elections could be rigged in the same manner preserving Deep State power. Twitter conversations would never be revealed. This is what the Twitter Files, from which this column is taken, document.
One miracle of 2022 was Twitter being bought by an OUTSIDER Elon Musk for $44 billion—an offer too big to turn down. A second miracle, Musk, not a coconspirator, was strong enough to reveal to the world the secret combinations coup plans he found in Twitter. He did not have to do so. There was no profit for him in revealing these tweets. This made him the number one enemy of the Deep State (Combination). The coup had already been accomplished Nov. 3, 2020. He could have remained silent with it and remained rich and favored by them forever.
The Combination (Deep State) upon realizing Musk was opposed to what they did and willing to reveal it, went into overdrive to first discredit him, then next to remove his advertising base for Twitter which would bankrupt him. He still chose to reveal their communications to each other facilitating the overthrow and making himself physically a target.
What follows are the Twitter Files documenting Twitter’s 2020 election rigging. These are best assembled by KanekoatheGreat of Kanekoa News. He synthesized their election interference in 34 Twitter tweets. Column space limitation allows only highlights of his synthesis which follow.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) housed a censorship branch, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), geared to identify what they considered mis or disinformation in the public sector defined as any information outside the narrative of the federal government. Lacking constitutional authority to censor the American public themselves, CISA (the government) was more than happy to team-up with like-minded private sector organizations notably the Election Integrity Partnership (EIP) and social media outlets, notably Twitter, to outsource actual censorship—the dirty work—for them.
The EIP formed in 2020 “comprised of four organizations: Stanford Internet Observatory, the University of Washington’s Center for an Informed Public, Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab, and Graphika.” Together the secret combination of government and private sector Deep Staters had about “120 analysts to censor millions of social media posts on elections…. [working] 20 hours a day,[enabling their] forwarding tickets of misinformation to be censored” to the obliging social media platforms. These “monitored 15 tech platforms •22 million tweets [were] labeled ‘misinformation’ •Entire ‘misinformation narratives’ [were] targeted for platform-wide throttling.” Every repeat spreader of misinformation, the EIP acknowledged, “was on the right side of the political spectrum.” They also “flagged popular populist-right YouTube channels, including: @scrowder, @BlazeTV, @JudicialWatch, and even the @GOP War Room, as ‘mis- and disinformation’ spreaders,”—basically the Republican Party. These were/are considered domestic terrorists by the Deep State Joe Biden government. This gave them the win.
Enter Mike Benz, the Foundation for Freedom online @FFO_Freedom founder who “comprehensively details the US government’s role in outsourcing censorship to this public-private network,” the EIP. Benz “extensively documented the individuals involved and the flow of taxpayer funds ($40M) to domestic censorship” (@MikeBenzCyber). The DHS quietly corrupted CISA's mission when it designated domestic disinformation as cyber attacks on "critical cognitive infrastructure” (information outside the government narrative). As noted, the “US government cannot sandblast millions of voters off the internet because of their speech about elections.” But the EIP, their private sector partners, could and did it for them.
So “who are these unelected bureaucrats who get to play judge, jury, and executioner and control the thoughts of millions of Americans?” Two main names are identified, business partners Chris Krebs and Alex Stamos. Stamos was “founder of the EIP censorship network,” a CFR member and “the director of the of the Stanford Internet Observatory,” one of the four organizations making up the EIP and today leads the organization. Other standouts include: Kate Starbird, Graham Brookie, and Ben Nimmo. Details of their collusion in the censorship of anything right on the political spectrum by Twitter is given in the Twitter thread presented.
Essentially the EIP rigged the 2020 presidential election and 2022 mid-terms in three decisive ways: The “EIP defined ‘delegitimization’ as speech that ‘casts doubt’ on the election process or outcome. This accounted for 72 percent of the censorship tickets and targeted over 99 percent of the post throttled by narrative, focusing on voting machines and vote-by-mail (@MikeBenzCyber)." The EIP allowed the left “to discuss the vulnerabilities of voting machines after the 2016 election” while banning the right from “discussing those very same vulnerabilities after the 2020 election.” Finally, the EIP “collaborated with its Big Tech partners to systematically censor any delegitimization of vote-by-mail as disinformation. In effect, they sided with the left and pre-banned criticism of vote-by-mail at the narrative level five months before the 2020 election.”
The Deep State used the COVID-19 “crisis to push for nationwide mail-in voting, which increased the number of ballots cast by mail from 28.8 million in 2016 to 66.4 million in 2020, a massive 131 percent increase.” Thus the “percentage of Democrats voting by mail rose from 26 percent in 2016 to 60 percent in 2020, while Republican voters only saw a rise from 21 percent to 32 percent. In short, the extra 37 million ballots cast by mail during the 2020 election swung the election to the EIP's preferred candidate” Joe Biden. Thus Twitter confesses rigging 2020 election.
