WATCH: Hillary Clinton Issues NASTY Insult To Pro-Lifers

(SNews) – Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was called ‘a disgrace’ on social media after she compared pro-lifers in America to the brutal regimes in Afghanistan and Sudan.

Speaking from the Women’s Voices Summit at the Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock, Arkansas, Hillary said: “We have come a long way since I made that statement back in 1995 on so many fronts.

“But we are also in a period of time where there is a lot of pushback and much of the progress that has been, I think, taken for granted by too many people is under attack.

“Literally under attack, in places like Iran or Afghanistan or Ukraine, where rape is a tactic of war, or under attack by political and cultural forces in a country like our own, when it comes to women’s health care and bodily autonomy.

“It’s so shocking to think that in any way we’re related to poor Afghanistan and Sudan.

“But as an advanced economy as we allegedly are, on this measure, we unfortunately are rightly put with them.”

“This struggle is between autocracy and democracy from our country to places we can’t even believe we’re being compared to.

“One of the stories ingrained in my mind is that often black women, even women of education and affluence like Serena Williams, come close to dying when she gives birth because people are not paying attention to her,” Clinton said.

“Today, women across the United States and around the world face challenges to their freedom,” Stephanie Streett, executive director of the Clinton Foundation, said in a statement.

“Through the ongoing Women’s Voices Exhibition and this week’s summit, we will examine the historical struggle to defend and advance women’s rights by bringing together a wide range of voices, perspectives, and solutions to accelerate the pace of progress toward equality, ‘once and for all.’

“Hillary Clinton is a disgrace,” tweeted Nile Gardiner of the Heritage Foundation.

According to Fox News, “Sudan’s Islamist state bans abortion except for when a woman was raped or her life is in danger. Afghanistan’s Islamist state bans abortion except for when the mother’s life in danger.”

BREAKING: Elon Musk SPILLS Secrets… Democrats DOOMED

(SNews) – Twitter CEO followed through on his promise to expose the censors at Twitter and it is bad for President Joe Biden. Musk handed the big reveal to independent journalist (and a one-time liberal darling) Matt Taibbi who said:

“What you’re about to read is the first installment in a series, based upon thousands of internal documents obtained by sources at Twitter.

“The “Twitter Files” tell an incredible story from inside one of the world’s largest and most influential social media platforms. It is a Frankensteinian tale of a human-built mechanism grown out the control of its designer.

“Twitter in its conception was a brilliant tool for enabling instant mass communication, making a true real-time global conversation possible for the first time.

“In an early conception, Twitter more than lived up to its mission statement, giving people “the power to create and share ideas and information instantly, without barriers.”

“As time progressed, however, the company was slowly forced to add those barriers. Some of the first tools for controlling speech were designed to combat the likes of spam and financial fraudsters.

“Slowly, over time, Twitter staff and executives began to find more and more uses for these tools.

“Outsiders began petitioning the company to manipulate speech as well: first a little, then more often, then constantly.

“By 2020, requests from connected actors to delete tweets were routine. One executive would write to another:

“More to review from the Biden team.” The reply would come back: “Handled.”

“Celebrities and unknowns alike could be removed or reviewed at the behest of a political party:

“Both parties had access to these tools. For instance, in 2020, requests from both the Trump White House and the Biden campaign were received and honored. However:

“This system wasn’t balanced. It was based on contacts.

“Because Twitter was and is overwhelmingly staffed by people of one political orientation, there were more channels, more ways to complain, open to the left (well, Democrats) than the right.

The resulting slant in content moderation decisions is visible in the documents you’re about to read. However, it’s also the assessment of multiple current and former high-level executives.

BREAKING: DeSantis FIRES BACK – Hits Wall Street Right Where It Hurts

(SNews) – Florida’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis has hit Wall Street where it hurts by terminating a $2 billion contract with Larry Fink’s BlackRock over its “woke” ESG policies.

Environmental, Social, and Governance standard (ESG) refers to non-financial standards used by asset managers in financial decision-making and is often referred to as social or corporate credit rating.

Florida Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis announced that the Florida Treasury will begin divesting $2 billion worth of assets currently under management by BlackRock.

The State Treasury will immediately have Florida’s custody bank freeze approximately $1.43 billion worth of long-term securities and remove them as the manager of approximately $600 million worth of short-term overnight investments.

CFO Jimmy Patronis said, “As Florida’s Chief Financial Officer, it’s my responsibility to get the best returns possible for taxpayers.

“The more effective we are in investing dollars to generate a return, the more effective we’ll be in funding priorities like schools, hospitals and roads.

“As major banking institutions and economists predict a recession in the coming year, and as the Fed increases interest rates to combat the inflation crisis, I need partners within the financial services industry who are as committed to the bottom line as we are – and I don’t trust BlackRock’s ability to deliver.

“BlackRock CEO Larry Fink is on a campaign to change the world.

“In an open letter to CEOs, he’s championed ‘stakeholder capitalism’ and believes that ‘capitalism has the power to shape society.’

“To meet this end, the asset management company has leaned heavily into Environmental, Social, and Governance standards – known as ESG – to help police who should, and who should not gain access to capital.

“Whether stakeholder capitalism, or ESG standards, are being pushed by BlackRock for ideological reasons, or to develop social credit ratings, the effect is to avoid dealing with the messiness of democracy. I think it’s undemocratic of major asset managers to use their power to influence societal outcomes.

“If Larry, or his friends on Wall Street, want to change the world – run for office. Start a non-profit. Donate to the causes you care about.

“Using our cash, however, to fund BlackRock’s social-engineering project isn’t something Florida ever signed up for.

“It’s got nothing to do with maximizing returns and is the opposite of what an asset manager is paid to do. Florida’s Treasury Division is divesting from BlackRock because they have openly stated they’ve got other goals than producing returns.

“As Larry Fink stated to CEOs ‘[A]ccess to capital is not a right. It is a privilege.’

“As Florida’s CFO I agree wholeheartedly, so we’ll be taking Larry up on his offer,” he said.

“There’s no lack of companies who will invest on our behalf, so the Florida Treasury will be taking its business elsewhere.”

BlackRock said in a statement:

“We are surprised by the Florida CFO’s decision given the strong returns BlackRock has delivered to Florida taxpayers over the last five years.

“Neither the CFO nor his staff have raised any performance concerns.

“We are disturbed by the emerging trend of political initiatives like this that sacrifice access to high-quality investments and thereby jeopardize returns, which will ultimately hurt Florida’s citizens.

“Fiduciaries should always value performance over politics,” the statement said.

WATCH: Fox News Star Blows Whistle On MAJOR Scandal

(SNews) – Fox Business star Maria Bartiromo asked Sen. Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) whether disgraced FTX “fraudster” Sam Bankman-Fried is getting TV interviews rather than getting arrested because he donated a massive amount of cash to the Democrats.

“I didn’t ever try to commit fraud on anyone,” Bankman-Fried said.

“I was excited about the prospects of FTX a month ago. I saw it as a thriving, growing business. I was shocked by what happened this month, and reconstructing it, there are things I wish I’d done differently.”

Sen. Lummis said: “Well, I think that these were well-educated, sophisticated fraudsters. I think it’s obviously fraud. So the Justice Department needs to get involved.

“This was just pure and simple, good old-fashioned fraud, and it needs to be handled through the criminal procedures.”

Maria said:

“But if it’s good old-fashioned fraud, why is he doing the rounds this morning?

“He was on GMA.

“He was at the New York Times summit.

“Why isn’t he in handcuffs? Is it because he donated $40 million to Democrats?”

“Well I hope that’s not it,” said Lummis.

“But it does have the appearance of a kid glove treatment for someone who had mesmerized the public.”

Bankman-Fried is a public Dem donor, second only to George Soros. But he has claimed that he “secretly” donated to Republicans via “dark money” groups.

If you are going to commit massive fraud, as it appears this clown did, buying both or one political parties is a good investment.

We shall see what shakes out but billions are missing and so far he has not provided any answers other than to claim that he was not aware one of his companies took client money and gambled it.

BREAKING: New CNN CEO Drops Hammer, FIRES Top Trump Critic

(SNews) – CNN’s new CEO Chris Licht has reportedly fired a fierce critic of former President Donald Trump. Politics Reporter and Editor-at-Large Chris Cillizza has been let go from CNN according to Variety. He has worked at CNN since 2017.

Other CNN staffers getting the axe include Alison Kosik, Martin Savidge, Alex Field, and Mary Ann Fox. Licht earlier terminated Trump critics Brian Stelter’s Reliable Sources and axed White House Correspondent John Harwood.

According to Variety, Licht will gut HLN: “CNN will no longer produce live programs for HLN, according to one of these people, and will simulcast “CNN This Morning” in place of “Morning Express,” the A.M. news program that takes up most of HLN’s daytime schedule.

“HLN’s true-crime programming will be placed under the aegis of Warner Bros. Discovery executive Kathleen Finch, and made more a part of the operations of the company’s ID cable network.”

Licht wrote a memo this week to CNN employees about the coming cuts. The memo leaked before the ink was dry on it. Licht wrote to mall CNN employees:

“To my CNN colleagues, our people are the heart and soul of this organization. It is incredibly hard to say goodbye to any one member of the CNN team, much less many. I recently described this process as a gut punch, because I know that is how it feels for all of us.

“Today we will notify a limited number of individuals, largely some of our paid contributors, as part of a recalibrated reporting strategy.

“Tomorrow, we will notify impacted employees, and tomorrow afternoon I will follow up with more details on these changes.

“It will be a difficult time for everyone.

“If your job has been impacted, you will learn more through an in-person meeting or via Zoom, depending on your location.

“In those meetings, you will receive information specific to you about notice period or any severance that would apply, and your anticipated last day.

“I want to be clear that everyone who is bonus eligible will still receive their 2022 bonuses, which are determined by company performance.

“I know these changes affect both our departing colleagues and those who remain, and we have resources designed to support you.

“I will include a link to those resources in my follow up email tomorrow.

“Let’s take care of each other this week,” he wrote.

BREAKING: Europe Issues Dire THREAT To Elon Musk If He Refuses To Comply

(SNews) – The European Union has threatened to ban Twitter unless Elon Musk complies with the bloc’s strict rules on content moderation and agrees to censor users.

EU bureaucrats issued the threat during a videoconference today with Musk, Twitter’s new owner and CEO.

Thierry Breton, the EU’s commissioner in charge of implementing the bloc’s digital rules, is demanding that the social media platform follows the EU’s strict rules on content moderation.

Breton made the threat during a video meeting with Musk, according to media reports.

Breton told the tech entrepreneur that Twitter must follow the EU’s list of rules, including dropping the “arbitrary” way Musk reinstates banned users.

Musk was told that Twitter must “aggressively” target so-called “disinformation” and agree to an “extensive independent audit” of the platform by next year.

Musk was warned that unless he followed these and other rules, Twitter would be violating the EU’s new Digital Services Act and would be banned.

This law tries to set the global standard for how Big Tech must moderate content on the Internet.

Breton warned Musk that if he violates the new law, Twitter could face a Europe-wide ban or fines of up to 6 percent of global turnover.

According to CNBC:

Under the European Union’s recently approved Digital Services Act, large tech companies will be required to have robust content moderation systems to ensure they can quickly take down illegal material such as hate speech, incitement to terrorism, and child sexual abuse.

For his part, Musk has said he wouldn’t allow illegal content on the platform.

The EU’s rules are expected to come into force by 2024.

Companies can be fined up to 6% of global annual revenues for violations.

Guy Verhofstadt, a member of the European Parliament, said Friday that “the need for rules and accountability is bigger than ever.”

“So one man @elonmusk now owns the biggest debate in the world …” he said in a tweet.

“Self-regulation in social media has never worked … even with lesser characters than his.”

WATCH: Mike Pence Sets Biden’s Press Sec STRAIGHT

(SNews) – Mike Pence set White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre straight after she said during a press briefing that the White was watching Elon Musk and Twitter. Pence was on Fox News hit show ‘Outnumbered’ where he said:

“The foundation of America is freedom. The freedom of speech, free and independent press, is a bulwark of why this nation is extraordinary and exceptional.

“The suggestion that the president of the United States is keeping a close eye on any element of the media is deeply offensive to me. I think Elon Musk is exactly right.

“We ought to err on the side of freedom and freedom of speech.”

Martha MacCallum said:

“I think it strikes fear in the hearts of a lot of people in Washington and in some of the media that he’s going to allow light to be shown into this.

Ainsley Earhardt said:

“We’re seeing that happening little by little in our country.

“I don’t know why everyone’s so upset with Elon Musk and why they want him to not buy Twitter and they’re scared of what he’s going to do.

“He just wants free speech. This is not a revolution.”

At a White House press briefing recently, Reuters’ reporter Andrea Shalal asked, “There’s a researcher at Stanford who says that this is a critical moment, really, in terms of ensuring that Twitter does not become a vector of misinformation.

“Elon Musk says there are more and more subscribers coming online, are you concerned about that and what tools do you have – who is it at the White House that is really keeping track of this?”

Karine Jean-Pierre said the White House is ‘keeping a close eye’ on Musk and Twitter.

WATCH: Twitter’s Ex-Censorship Chief Comes Clean about Banning Trump

(SNews) – A former Twitter executive, who was instrumental in the decision to ban President Donald Trump from the platform and censor the Hunter Biden laptop story, has finally come clean about the moves.

Yoel Roth, who was the head of Twitter’s “Trust and Safety” team, admitted that the decisions were a mistake.

Roth quit shortly after Musk’s purchase was complete and he took over as CEO.

In a new interview, Roth told Kara Swisher the company blew it when they restricted people from sharing the bombshell story.

Roth also denied he was responsible for the decision.

“It’s widely reported that I personally directed the suppression of the Hunter Biden story,” he said.

“That is not true. It is absolutely, unequivocally untrue.

“We didn’t know what to believe, we didn’t know what was true, there was smoke — and ultimately for me, it didn’t reach a place where I was comfortable removing this content from Twitter.

“But it set off every single one of my finely tuned APT28 ‘hack and leak campaign’ alarm bells.”

Asked if it was a mistake for Twitter to have blocked the story, Roth said:

“In my opinion, yes.”

“It went off the rails in exactly the ways that we anticipated,” Roth said about the since delayed rollout of the new verification system by Elon Musk.

Roth also defended Musk and said the two have a good relationship.

Initially, Roth stayed on when Musk took over but he left after a couple of weeks.

When asked to give Musk some advice, Roth said:

“Humility goes a really long way,” he said.

Swisher excused the censorship on Twitter and inadvertently let the cat out of the bag when she said: “They were on alert from what happened in 2016 and all the hacked emails and things.”

The 2016 “disinformation” and the Russia Facebook story were duds. Had no impact.

News organizations always run stories on big leaks and they would have run the story on the DNC hack and what it contained whether there were social media platforms or not.

But blaming Russia and so-called “disinformation” allowed the Democrats and their allies to censor speech and control the narrative.

If you are a conservative or don’t follow the narrative, you get suppressed.

If you are a Democrat and obey the narrative, you can literally say anything and will not get banned or suppressed.

BREAKING: Judge Hands Rachel Maddow DEVASTATING Blow

(SNews) – A federal judge in Manhattan has handed former Republican Congressman Devin Nunes a huge win over Rachel Maddow in a defamation lawsuit.

Nunes is suing NBCUniversal over a comment made by far-left host Maddow.

The network has been fighting in court to try and get the lawsuit tossed.

However, U.S. District Judge P. Kevin Castel Nunes has now ordered the defamation lawsuit to proceed.

The lawsuit stems from the Trump era when Maddow and other leftist media figures believed they had free reign to label the 45th president, and anyone who supported him, as Russian agents.

Maddow alleged that Nunes received a package from Andriy Derkach, a pro-Russia Ukrainian legislator.

She falsely claimed that Nunes “refused to hand it over to the FBI, which is what you should do if you get something from somebody who is sanctioned by the U.S. as a Russian agent.”

The true story is that Nunes’ aides turned over the package, unopened, to the FBI the day it arrived.

Judge Castel rejected NBC’s argument that Maddow’s statements were either true or simply opinions and were protected by the Constitution’s First Amendment.

Castel said when Maddow said Nunes refused to give the package to the FBI, she was asserting a fact, not an opinion.

“The statement in this respect was false, not just technically but also in substance and meaning, and capable of injuring Nunes in his profession,” the judge wrote.

Castel dismissed Nunes’s claims that two other statements were defamatory.

Nunes “plausibly allege[d] actual malice,” Castel said.

Castel said Maddow had no source for the Nunes’ story and while she may have known about a similar story in a Politico, “a court does not weigh competing, plausible theories of actual malice on a motion to dismiss.”

Nunes is seeking damages and said in his suit that MSNBC and Maddow knew the package had been turned over, but instead “set out to inflict maximum pain and suffering on plaintiff in order to harm plaintiff’s reputation.”

JUST IN: DeSantis Issues Direct WARNING To “Woke” Apple

(SNews) – Florida’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis has warned Apple CEO Tim Cook that removing Twitter from the tech giant’s App Store with lead to dire consequences.

DeSantis issued a statement responding to reports that Apple is considering banning Twitter from the App Store due to Elon Musk’s free speech agenda.

The governor also told Apple, the world’s largest company by market cap, to stop being vassals for the Chinese Communist Party.

DeSantis was commenting on a report that Apple is not allowing Chinese protesters to use the airdrop function anymore.

“The protesters have been using the airdrop feature to evade spying by the corrupt communist regime.

Ron said: “There are reports that Apple is not allowing the protesters to use this airdrop function.

“That is providing aid and comfort to the CCP and then you hear reports that Apple is threatening to remove Twitter from the App store because Elon Musk is opening up to free speech.

“If Apple responds to that by Nuking them from the App store it would be a huge mistake and would be really raw exercise of monopolistic power that I think would merit a response from the United States Congress.

“Don’t be a vassal of the CCP on one hand and then use your corporate power in the US to suffocate Americans and suppress their right to express themselves.

“The Chinese Communist Party’s “Zero COVID” policy is draconian, unscientific, and represents a gross violation of individual rights.

“The Chinese people are right to protest the maniacal impulse to exercise total control of the population which is the hallmark of the CCP regime.”
