Twitter Files: Staffers felt Trump did not violate ‘incitement’ policy



Elon Musk promises more files soon regarding Twitter’s handling of Covid-19.

Before Elon Musk bought Twitter it was apparently filled with people who were willing to target Americans for their beliefs—and it went all the way to the top.

The latest revelations expose executives having conversations about changing the platform to go after one single person: Donald J. Trump.

Among the revelations, behind the scenes conversations on what led to then-President Trump being banned by Twitter.

Released on Monday, the fifth installment of Musk’s “Twitter Files” shows that staffers believed written tweets by former President Trump about Jan. 6 did not actually violate its policies, despite the company publicly saying so.

According to the Twitter document dump, Twitter execs worked behind the scenes to further restrict speech and lay the foundation to eventually and permanently ban President Trump

According to reports of internal communication: one staffer wrote in a group message, “I think we’d have a hard time saying this is incitement,” wrote one official. “It’s pretty clear he’s saying the ‘American Patriots’ are the ones who voted for him and not the terrorists (we can call them that, right?) from [Jan. 6].”:

“Don’t see the incitement angle here,” a second monitor agreed, while policy official Annika Navroli concurred: “I also am not seeing clear or coded incitement in the DJT tweet.”
“I’ll respond in the elections channel and say that our team has assessed and found no [violations] for the DJT one.”

Now, a key Republican lawmaker, Michael Waltz of Florida is calling for the new Congress to do something.

“The laws haven’t been updated since the 90s. They absolutely have to be. Antitrust I know it’s controversial, but you are going to see major action in this next Congress we’ve got to clean this up.”

On Dec. 2, the Twitter Files began with revelations of internal efforts to suppress the New York Post’s Hunter Biden story in 2020 and now, Musk is promising to release more details on how Twitter handled Covid-19.

Is the U.S. debt deal bad fiscal policy?



While President Joe Biden and Republican leadership came to an agreement on the debt limit—some lawmakers say the fiscal policy is a bad deal and does not rein in spending.

The executive branch and Congress tried to strike a deal about the debt limit as the country marched closer to defaulting.

The Treasury has been warning that the government could run out of money sometime in the beginning of June and would likely default on some bills if Congress does not raise the debt ceiling.

Democrats have insisted on raising the debt limit without preconditions.

But, Republicans say President Joe Biden and the Democrats are playing Russian roulette with America’s economy after a two-year spending binge that brought 40-year high inflation and pushed the nation’s debt to over $31-trillion.

While President Biden and Republican leadership came to an agreement on the debt limit—many lawmakers say the fiscal policy is a bad deal and does not rein in spending.

Is President Biden securing a ‘made in America’ supply chain for critical minerals?



Rare earths elements are responsible for some of the most important materials involved in electric vehicle production, battery making, renewable energy systems and technology manufacturing.

Last year, President Joe Biden said he wanted to make rare earths an important domestic policy initiative and he signed an executive order to review gaps in the domestic supply chains for rare earths, medical devices, chips, and other key resources.

The Department of Energy announced a $30 million initiative to tap into researching and securing the U.S. domestic supply chain for rare earths and other important minerals in battery-making production.

But at the same time, President Biden also blocked the mining of rare earth minerals on more than 225,000 acres of federal land for more than 20 years.

Is it possible for the U.S. to change course and again have a seat at the table in producing rare earths elements?

To discuss further, Luisa Moreno the President of the Defense Metals Corp. joined us.
