Elon Musk’s release of Twitter’s Hunter Biden files, dealing with the company’s collusion with numerous entities to suppress the bombshell laptop story prior to the 2020 election, is the gift that keeps on giving. There are so many emails to sift through and so much to discuss that it’s hard to know where to begin.
With that said, there are two major parts to this. Obviously, Twitter’s role in the partisan corruption that took place is important, and it exposes a rot that still exists at the other major social media companies. On the other side, though, is the role government officials played in possibly violating the rights of Americans by proxy, which could place some in legal peril.
On Friday, we learned that the FBI was meeting weekly with social media companies to discuss what accounts and content to suppress. Now, with the release of these files by Twitter, we are learning that Democrats in the House and Senate were also lashing out behind the scenes, and to put it succinctly, what was being said is downright disturbing.
The Democrats were in agreement: social media needs to moderate more because their corrupting democracy and making all “truth” relative. When pushed on how the government might insist on that, consistent with the First Amendment, they demurred: “the First Amendment isn’t absolute.”
Not that it was a big secret that the left has zero respect for constitutional rights, but it’s still stunning to see this stuff out in the open. You had Democrat congressional members as well as the Biden campaign running to Twitter to describe what they knew was a factual story as disinformation, demanding that it be censored. Worse, Twitter did their bidding.
That goes well past the public expressions of discontent, which were dishonest enough. The government is not legally permitted to collude with private companies, using them as a tool to violate the rights of Americans. Yet, that’s exactly what appears to have happened here. That it possibly swung a presidential election only adds to the level of malfeasance that took place.
What this boils down to is a small group of political elites who decided they had the moral authority to essentially rig the 2020 election. Who could forget that infamous TIME article admitting as much shortly after Joe Biden’s inauguration? In that sense, Musk’s document dump isn’t telling anything new as much as it is confirming what we’ve known all along.
Most frustrating is the continued reality that there will be no accountability. No one will pay a price for this, and Democrats will just move on to their next underhanded, possibly illegal scheme to hold onto power. Still, there’s immense value in knowing the truth, and the truth is now out there. On that front, Musk has done the country a great service.

We’ve seen some bombshell revelations in the Elon Musk Twitter drop about the suppression files including those surrounding the Hunter Biden laptop story. There are freakouts underway on the left and we see a fascinating take by Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA) who expressed concerns about the First Amendment. Twitter should have paid attention to that because it looks like they went far over the edge with what they did.
As the records showed, the Biden team was reaching out and getting people suspended from Twitter.
Among the revelations was an incredible record that indicated the DNC had asked Twitter to take down actor James Woods.
You can see this note they took down another account but then referred Woods’ account to “Safety” — Twitter Safety — for an evaluation since he was a “high profile” person.
Not only does this show that Twitter was operating under direct requests from the Democrats but it also involved specifically removing information that could be harmful to their candidate Joe Biden, because it concerned his son.
If the government was involved, it could potentially implicate constitutional questions.
It is believed that this is the tweet that might have been in question. It looks like it’s Hunter Biden smoking crack.
There’s nothing that would appear violative of the terms of service as far as I can tell in that picture. There’s nothing physically visible apart from Hunter smoking. But that would be harmful of course to Joe Biden’s campaign as it would show there was validity to the laptop because of the picture of Hunter Biden. So suppressing it was helping the Biden campaign. This was at a critical point in October, right before the election, with Woods being a big influencer with a very active Twitter account. Many accounts were suspended or locked during that period if they had anything to do with trying to spread the Hunter Biden laptop story.
Looks like they have a smoking gun here and more on the way. Break out the popcorn.
