We have known long before the 2016 and 2020 elections that all this stuff was going on, but the Left covered their tracks and did smear campaigns which blamed right-wing conspiracies, Alex Jones, and Q-Anon.
Now, the Left can no longer hide their entrenchment with dark money, Big Tech, and government. What’s more, they really no longer care. It’s just laying out there, like bathers on the beach.
Cernovich tweeted about how the California Democrats have a rapid response team embedded at Twitter. This team fields their emails and texts, where Dems can demand that certain speech that they do not agree with, or call outs against their selected narratives, be restricted and removed, and the parties who tweeted this information be banned.

This is fully documented in the lawsuit filed by Harmeet Dhillon’s Liberty Center on behalf of Rogan O’Hanley (known as DC Draino), against former California Secretary of State, now U.S. Senator Alex Padilla, Twitter, and SKDKnickerbocker, LLC, which handled “get out the vote” for California, as I reported back in November.
Under the Emergency Orders issued by Governor Gavin Newsom, Secretary of State Alex Padilla entered a controversial $35 million no-bid contract with SKDKnickerbocker, a company with ties to the Biden campaign, and claimed it was to educate people on the new form of mail-in voting due to the pandemic.

Twitter, current California Secretary of State Shirley Weber, and several other parties are also named in the suit. As I referenced in the title of the November piece, this one would come back to bite Padilla in the rear, and it has—in spades.
The Democrats cannot help but promote incompetence, so they used their partnership with Big Tech to try and paper over and whitewash this incompetence. This resulted in restrictions on valid and constitutional inquiries into government processes, and silencing of free speech.
Corporations working together with politicians for political goals is the definition of fascism.
And the ones actually doing it are the ones calling the other side fascist.

Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai has also filed a lawsuit against the Massachusetts Electors and the Secretary of State along those same lines. From Dr. Ayyadurai’s website:
For years we were told Twitter acts on its own as a private company and you cannot question their decisions. Following the deplatforming of Dr. SHIVA, testimony and hearings in Federal court elicited how government and Twitter have created an infrastructure for government to launder censorship of speech through Twitter. This website provides all documents as they emerge in this historic lawsuit. The presiding Federal Judge declared this case is one of substantial constitutional consequences and a lawsuit that will likely become “a law school exam in Constitutional Law.”
This is not the first time we’ve seen this; sadly, with this bunch, it won’t be the last.
My colleague Nick Arama has pointed out the hypocrisy of RI Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-Arrogant) in belonging to an all white country club, while raving like a madman on the Senate floor about dark money in politics and systemic racism.
In a word, he showed he was a pretty slimy human being without a lot of principles.
Turns out that doesn’t only apply to politics.
Whitehouse belongs to the all-white Bailey’s Beach Club in Newport, according to GoLocalProv.
Apparently, the issue had been raised with him in 2017, four years ago. Now, people put it to him again this weekend.
GoLocalProv asked Whitehouse back when he was first running for Senate in 2006, about the membership. Whitehouse claimed he would cease his membership in the club if he was elected to the Senate. Apparently that did not happen. His wife decided to take an ownership stake in the club, and Sheldon simply went along.
Happy Wife, Happy Life.
Can you say, “Hypocrite”, boys and girls? If you look it up in the dictionary, Sheldon Whitehouse’s picture is next to it.
Here is how one lifelong member of Bailey’s Beach Club described its membership back in 2003:
“Jewish, yes. … Blacks, not really.” https://t.co/h01FVEeVPb
— Kenneth P. Vogel (@kenvogel) June 20, 2021
Apparently, the New York Times profiled the Bailey’s Beach Club, and confirmed that aside from a Jew or two, Blacks are pretty much non-existent in terms of membership. So, while Whitehouse is writing legislation and fighting against all that “dark money” in politics, he swims, eats, and plays racquetball with the very people who fund the coffers.
Prove me wrong.
And our most current affair, the COVID-19 pandemic and the Fauci emails, are probably the most egregious example of how little they cared about what anyone thought.
Fauci worked with Zuckerberg to censor the discussion on the origins of COVID-19.
— Sen. Marsha Blackburn (@MarshaBlackburn) June 20, 2021
After last week’s big reveal, that Mark Zuckerberg and Dr. Anthony Fauci worked in concert in order to build an “information hub” to disseminate the most reliable information about COVID-19, the news was met with one-part derision, one-part cynicism, and two-parts, we saw this coming. We all knew between Facebook, Twitter, and our craven and inconsistent politicians, the last thing anyone received was reliable information.
It was only reliable according to Zuckerberg and Fauci.
Combine this latest revelation with the fact that Facebook used Peter Daszak as their fact checker to suspend accounts while Mark Zuckerberg emailed Fauci to help with "messaging," and simultaneously funded $400 million for mail-in ballots and elections in battleground states. https://t.co/NT0AB3O52S

In fact, Zuckerberg used Peter Daszak of EcoHealth Alliance as his key expert for fact-checking. You can read my colleague Scott Hounsell’s deep dive into the corrupt individual that is Daszak here, here, here, and here.
As Scott Shepherd wrote over at our sister site, Townhall Finance:
It seems awfully likely that Mark Zuckerberg, the dead-eyed CEO of Facebook, and disgraced Dr. Anthony Fauci, the highest paid employee of the United States government and tinpot dictator of the 14-month-long two-weeks-to-flatten-the-curve, colluded to keep certain facts and opinions about Covid from being expressed on Facebook.
Indeed they did. From the emails, Zuckerberg reached out to Fauci, fawning over him about his important work, and pretty much putting it out there that the American people needed to be directed to the correct information, and Zuckerberg would willingly be the gatekeeper on what that information would be.
From Zuckerberg’s email to Fauci on May 15, 2020:
(They’re on a first name basis now)
I wanted to send a note of thanks for your leadership and everything you’re doing to make our country’s response to this outbreak as effective as possible. I also want to share a few ideas of ways we could help you get your message out, but I understand you’re incredibly busy, so don’t feel a need to reply unless these seem interesting.
This isn’t public yet, but we’re building a Coronavirus information Hub that we’re going to put at the top of Facebook for everyone (200+million Americans, 2.5 billion people worldwide) with two goals: (1) make sure people can get authoritative information from reliable sources and (2) encourage people to practice social distance and give people ideas for doing this using internet tools. This will be live within the next 48 hours.
As a central part of this hub, I think it would be useful to include a video from you because people trust and want to hear from experts rather than just a bunch of agencies and political leaders. This could be done in a number of formats if you’re open to it. Probably best would be recording a Q&A where you answer people’s top questions, but we’d be open to other formats too.
I’m also doing a series of livestreamed Q&As with health experts to try to use my large following on the platform (100 million followers) to get authoritative information out as well. I’d love to have you do one of these Q&As. This could be the video we put in the Coronavirus Hub or it could be different thing that we distribute separately, but I think it could be effective as well.
Notice how Zuckerberg takes it upon himself to know what 2.5 billion people need to see. Also notice that it’s all about control. Mitigation strategies. Social distancing. Nothing about preventative medicine, wholistic health, or practices on how to build the immune system. Suffice to say, this was neither Zuckerberg’s nor Fauci’s interest.
Here’s Fauci’s response two days later, On March 17, 2020:
Thank you for your kind note. I tried to call you, but got voice mail. FYI, my cell phone number is [Redacted]. Your idea and proposal sound terrific. I would be happy to do a video for your hub. We need to reach as many people as possible and convince them to take mitigation strategies or things will get much, much worse. Also, your idea about [Redacted] is very exciting.
Fauci copied several other people, and note that one idea Zuckerberg put forth was redacted.
These exchanges, among others, prompted KY Rep. James Comer and OH Rep. Jim Jordan, both the ranking Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee on Oversight and Reform, to send a letter to Zuckerberg requesting he submit to them any communications the company has had with Fauci and other federal employees regarding COVID-19.
The Left thinks they have all the power, and they do not care.
