Washington Post headlines, but they get increasingly more insane. (Thread) Image

The national security state should do MORE psyops is quite the take. Image
Maybe this Yemen War isn't so bad after all! Image
Unbelievable. Image
This, however, is my all-time favorite headline from the WaPo. From the "war is peace" messaging to the "us" in the headline to the incredible graphic, you could write an entire thesis on this insane article. Image
Plug for my investigation into how Jeff Bezos turned the Post into a vehicle for his own business interests. --->…

An investigation into the 20 most influential US news outlets found that virtually all of them have completely ignored a star journalist’s bombshell report claiming the Biden admin blew up the Nord Stream pipeline.

Read my newest investigation:…
1 week ago, Seymour Hersh published a report claiming US Navy divers placed explosive charges on the Baltic gas pipeline, engaging in what the Biden admin admitted was "an act of war" against Germany- one of the USA's closest allies.…
Studying a week's worth of news from the top 20 largest US media outlets found only 4 total stories on them, including 5 mins of TV, 1 tiny report and one blistering attack piece calling Hersh a "discredited journalist" who just gave "a gift to Putin".

The #TwitterFiles have laid bare how Twitter actively worked with the US military to spread propaganda from US gov-run bot accounts.

But Twitter's relationship with the US national security state goes much further.

Earlier this year, I reported on how Twitter has been actively recruiting dozens from the ranks of the FBI, CIA and NATO for top jobs in highly sensitive fields like trust & safety, security and content moderation.…
What the Twitter Files have shown is that the FBI was actively lying to Twitter about the Hunter Biden case, and how Twitter was actively working with the US military to promote pro-US propaganda in Iran, Yemen and across the Middle East.

The “Israeli spy” who “infiltrated” MintPress News.

My new investigation into the curious case of Catherine Perez-Shakdam.…
Catherine Perez-Shakdam worked for @MintPressNews between 2014 and 2017. But many, including MintPress management, now believe her to be an Israeli intelligence plant. Find out why.
Regularly quoting Lenin and other radical figures, Catherine Perez-Shakdam (CPS) wrote about Middle Eastern politics, railing against US and Israeli foreign policy and excoriating the Saudi attack on Yemen.

Imagine being so drenched in ideology that you think this is a feel good story. Image
One of my most read articles at @FAIRmediawatch was on this very subject.

"Media Just Can’t Stop Presenting Horrifying Stories as ‘Uplifting’ Perseverance Porn"…

Since Elon Musk is center of attention right now, it's important to know that he is not (as he portrays himself) some radical outsider, but a crucial part of the US surveillance and national security states.

My investigation here:…
From almost day 1 of SpaceX, Musk was a protégé the CIA, & in particular, CIA exec Mike Griffin.

Griffin mentored him, & when SpaceX was going broke, he argued for him at the CIA + NASA, saying he was the new “Henry Ford” of the rocket industry, securing huge contracts for Musk
Griffin was president of CIA venture capitalist arm, In-Q-Tel.

In-Q-Tel supports fledgling businesses that the agency thinks could work with them.

Griffin also accompanied Musk to Russia 🇷🇺 in 2002 where the pair tried to buy Russian intercontinental ballistic missiles.
