“Make sure those you follow talk about the surveillance, because everyone who is in the game knows. Make them either damage the machine by saying it, or reveal they are part of it by staying silent. Demanding our side talk about the surveillance is really the closest to a Xanatos gambit our side has.”

Twitter Files #7 detail how FBI launched an operation to get Twitter to kill the Hunter Biden story after they heard about it through illegal surveillance on Rudy Giuliani. The piece couches a lot of people as pushing back on FBI, like Roth, but what that really is, is everyone trying to cover their ass, and make their actions look legal in the event there is an investigation. Everyone who was in any of these critical positions, did not just get there as a blind normie who grew up thinking we elected our leaders, and American government had checks and balances. I would bet every one was working as a ground surveillance operator from the time they were kids. They were all on the same page, just none wanted to let another leave him holding the bag if an investigation happened.

Latest ‘Twitter Files’ show FBI bullied executives over not reporting ‘state propaganda’ enough.

FBI paid Twitter $3.4 million in US tax dollars for administration costs related to the staff’s time spent working with the FBI.

Burglar caught red-handed in Robert Deniro’s house. Recidivist burglar (female) uses a pipe to pry her way into DeNiro’s basement, works up to his Christmas tree, and was about to clean him out, when cops who supposedly were following her, followed her in and caught her red-handed. Not that NYPD couldn’t do that, or wouldn’t do that, but in this environment, I tend to think they are not being allowed to do that, given the push is on to jack up crime as some sort of facet of the psyop. Much more likely is the same Cabal surveillance which makes Cabal assets untouchable by plebes, so they can be free to fuck over America (like Ed Buck had next door), was watching the tech from next door, saw foot traffic approaching DeNiro’s residence, sent in foot surveillance and vehicular to get a closer look, saw her breaking in, called for Police, who are under orders to give Cabal-surveillance priority, and they then handled the bust. And to explain how it went down, they claimed the NYPD had her under surveillance. It also shows, as the subways, and alleys of New York or Chicago turn into a meat-grinder, all those cops who are no longer allowed to fight regular crime, are getting pulled back and turned into a quick-reaction private security force for the small group of Cabal elites who are fucking everything up to begin with. Also, this is what should have happened with Paul Pelosi, if DePape had actually been a stranger breaking in.

Kevin McCarthy received some disparaging words from his former mentor, former Rep. Bill Thomas (R-Calif.), who called his former “protege” a liar whose words cannot be trusted. “Thomas explained how McCarthy sold out Donald Trump after major corporate donors threatened to abandon their donations to congressional Republicans if they voted against certifying the 2020 election.”

Mystery surrounding Republican Rep.-elect George Santos who flipped a House seat on Long Island: There are ‘no records’ at big banks where he said he worked, college he said he attended, or of properties ‘wealthy’ candidate says he owns. He is the first openly gay non-incumbent Republican and the first Brazilian-American elected to Congress. He was blackmailable which is why they let him run. I would not be surprised they did their walk-in, letting him know, like with David Patterson. But he seemed uncomfortable with becoming a puppet, so they called up their reporter at the Times, and this is how it went.
