    Elon Musk has hinted that he will reveal the logs of old Twitter's role in censoring and spreading disinformation before the 2020 election. This conspiracy was connected to Hunter Biden's laptop story, that was deemed Russian Disinformation. This led to good journalism being censored and suppressed and the lie sold as real.

    The Swamp, Democrat Party, Main stream media, and Big Tech appear to have colluded in a disinformation campaign before the 2020 election. Does anyone think the details should be revealed or should this be buried, so the same tactics can be used again by the same cabal?

    If true, what should be the consequences for this monopolistic conspiracy to defraud the voters? Was this an isolated event or business as usual for this same Cabal of powerful people? Was Trump right about fake news and its orders coming from the swamp?

    Twitter is a social media.
    People are free to express their own political opinions.
    Or their opinion about facts.
    Elon Musk has restored the real purpose of such social media.


    What can we I about Hunter? We have seen his photos...

    The right always needs something to go wacka-wacka about. "Swift Boat Veterans", Obama's birth certificate and now the laptop.

    And Benghazi. The funny thing about that is in most cases whenever a conservative brought it up all you had to do is ask them what country it's in and they would respond with blank stares.

    While collusion isn't really a thing legally.

    There was proof of Russia (ie Putin) pushing interference into the election between Trump and Hillary.

    RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE IN 2016 U.S. ELECTIONS | Federal Bureau of Investigation

    Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections - Wikipedia

    "The Russian government interfered in the 2016 U.S. presidential election with the goals of harming the campaign of Hillary Clinton, boosting the candidacy of Donald Trump, and increasing political and social discord in the United States. According to the U.S. intelligence community, the operation—code named Project Lakhta[1][2]—was ordered directly by Russian president Vladimir Putin.[3][4]"

    Democrats claimed collusion, not merely Russian interference.

    Most of what I heard was about interference, as "collusion" isn't a thing (that can be considered criminal).

    Criminal or otherwise, it's one of the left's
    unsupported conspiracy theories.

    Nice example that we can't trust our Government.

    Good to reveal the Truth

    Not good if Big Tech keep censoring such things

    Ok, I don't see it as a "conspiracy theory" myself, because after the Mueller report came out, no one kept pushing for collusion or claiming it occured (afaik). Unlike we'll say the "stolen election" conspiracy.

    By interference they mean that Russian computer geeks used to spread on all social media what transpired from Hillary's e-mails. They did that throughout 2016.
    According to them, this is what made Hillary lose.

    Stolen election....collusion...both are unsupported conspiracy
    theories. But neither side likes to admit it about their own.

    Then there are also those who believe that Putin wants to invade all of Europe....
    They are conspiracy theorists too.

    I've yet to see claims that he wants to
    invade "all" of Europe. However, there
    is evidence that he has designs on some
    former Soviet satellites, eg, Ukraine.

    What wild-eyed socialist liberal Democrat first talked about that? Of course it was this anti-capitalist loonie

    Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower who happened to be a 5 star general and in a position to know what was going on.

    During World War II, he served as Supreme Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Force in Europe and achieved the five-star rank of General of the Army. He planned and supervised the invasion of North Africa in Operation Torch in 1942–1943 as well as the invasion of Normandy (D-Day) from the Western Front in 1944–1945.

    If he can't handle Ukraine then no way could he handle the entirety of Europe. This conflict has exposed just how weak and ineffectual Russia has been all along.
