🚨Massive and disgraceful breaking news in the @DougMakey case. 🚨

Disgraced Antifa journalist Luke O'Brien has just interfered with an expert witness in the case which has led to a request for a delay from Makey's team.

A short thread....🧵
Luke O'Brien who was fired from HuffPo last year has harassed the defence's leading expert witness causing him to withdraw as a witness.
O'Brien attempted to portray the expert witness - Hawley - as an extremist based on emails that O'Brien presented to him. O'Brien pressured the witness by presenting him with the apparently hacked emails and asking if his employers knew about his testimony.
O'Brien - who is no longer a journalist - is supposedly writing an article for the SPLC where his long-time friend and fellow harasser Michael Hayden works. Both of these have a long history of harassing employers of people who call out their unethical and stalking behavior...
In 2019 I wrote an article - based on now peer reviewed research - which showed that O'Brien and Hayden are Antifa journalists...quillette.com/2019/05/29/its…
In response both Hayden and O'Brien contacted several of my employers - just as O'Brien did here - and made false statements to try and paint me as an extremist - again - just as O'Brien is doing here with an expert witness. thepostmillennial.com/how-they-ruin-…
Hayden and O'Brien recently ran a hit piece on me when my Antifa research was published in a respected Springer Peer Reviewed Data Science journal. They lied about how O'Brien had been locked out of his Twitter for several months for harassing me. open.substack.com/pub/dreoinleni…
O'Brien has used the 'I'm writing a story about you, does your employer know?' threat that he used here on Mackey's expert witness against me too. It's a dirty tactic. He believes the threat of being named in a public paper would scare me off of my research.
And most importantly, O'Brien uses hacked and faked materials to intimidate people who he sees as a threat or enemy. He got his most recent position - at the soon to be shut down Shorenstein Centre - after impressing the boss, Joan Donovan, by introducing her to a hacker.
Not only should O'Brien be the journalistic pariah he is but he should be facing harassment, hacking & now witness tampering charges. He survives because of his family DNC connections & because Antifa journo friends like Hayden are willing to lend SPLC credentials when needed.
Thanks to @LiaS814 for bringing the law and crime article to my attention.
I wrote the wrong @ in my first tweet. @DougMackeyCase is the correct @ to follow this case.

Highly significant! An SPLC attorney arrested in Atlanta last night for terrorism. The SPLC is currently the biggest ally of Antifa relying on their hacked materials & doxes of individuals for their “hate watch” list. The SPLC actively hires Antifa “researchers” & “journalists”…
Michael Hayden is one of the most prominent Antifa journalists. He featured in my now peer-reviewed research into Antifa on Twitter. The SPLC also recently hired his close friend - Antifa journalist - Jason Wilson. Both were outed in this article - quillette.com/2019/05/29/its…
Researcher Megan Squire is openly Antifa. In a @WIRED article Squire details how she passes the identifying information of suspected far-right extremists to Antifa & how she condones the group’s use of violence as a last resort in a “diversity of tactics”. wired.com/story/free-spe…

A boring thread about how I got my garden beds ready for planting. Last year was my first year #gardening. I just built natural earthen beds. I didn't know much about amending soil etc. & the garden had been dormant for about 15 years. Here's how it looked prepped last spring.
Despite being a novice there were some real successes. Like 45kg of spuds, 15kg of onions - which we still use! Peas, tomatoes, beans were all winners. Carrots, parsnips and cabbage, not so much. Still, I learned a lot. #gardening
I built a nice 3 bed composter from pallets and scrap wood to start building up our own supply of compost for this year's beds.

Important. @craignewmark financed Donovan’s work at Harvard & has pledged to continue funding her in the future. He is literally the largest funder of disinformation in the US. He has spent millions of dollars making sure journalism departments are activist breeding grounds.
@craignewmark In 2021 the Harvard Shorenstein Centre announced that Craig Newmark would fund Joan Donovan's Technology and Social Change project. shorensteincenter.org/newmark-suppor…
@craignewmark Newmark spent close to $200 million in the run up to the 2020 presidential election granting large sums to university journalism departments, in a bid to defeat Donald Trump. He claims to be motivate to defeat 'misinformation'. forbes.com/sites/angelauy…

I feel vindicated by the courageous steps taken by @Harvard Dean Douglas Elmendorf who is reportedly firing Shorenstein Centre 'misinformation expert' @BostonJoan. I have been covering how Donovan has packed the centre with Twitter activists. open.substack.com/pub/dreoinleni…
In a statement on the Harvard Crimson website it was reported that Dean Douglas Elmendorf was winding down Donovan's multi-million dollar project - "The Technology and Social Change" thecrimson.com/article/2023/2…
Donovan had packed the multi-million dollar funded centre with hyper-partisan Twitter 'researchers' and 'journalists' such as Erin Gallagher, giving fellowships to disgraced former journalist Luke O'Brien and Brandy Zadrozny.

We now have definitive proof that Vitamin D was a powerful defence against COVID. Peer reviewed research from Italy shows that Vit D reduces need for hospitalisation by 72% and reduces risk of death by 51%.
I walked with thousands of anti-mandate protesters in Germany last winter. Time & again I heard people say that Vitamin C, D and Zinc were a powerful means of combatting COVID and offered a more natural means of fighting it. They were called *far-right* and *conspiracy theorists*
link.medium.com/7to6jzKJ5wb Here, I recount some of the reasons Germans took to the streets last winter. Their concerns were absolutely legitimate. They were abused by politicians, police and the media in a manner I have never before witnessed.

I published an article in Quillette in 2019 which identified the leading Antifa journalists on Twitter. @MrAndyNgo has been blamed for writing and/or editing it & those accusations have lead to his hospitalisation, incalculable death threats & slander. Here's the reality. 🧵
In 2019 I published this Quillette article. It provided a now peer reviewed quantitative analysis of the Antifa network on Twitter. I was able to identify the most Antifa-connected journalists on here. quillette.com/2019/05/29/its…
The article went viral and I was almost immediately suspended from Twitter after a mass reporting campaign by Antifa, said Antifa journalists and other friends in the press. Therefore I was not able to defend myself or others from the torrent of lies that followed.
