The FBI has refused to say how many social media companies it works with, defending their actions after it emerged that agents from the bureau regularly met with Twitter executives and handed over lists of accounts they found questionable. Officials from the bureau even asked for Twitter to hand over the locations from where the Twitter accounts were being operated, in a disturbing move that many saw as an attack on the First Amendment. One user targeted by the FBI, who goes by @Lexitollah, said: 'Seems like prima facie 1A violation.' Charlie Hurt, the opinion editor of The Washington Examiner, said it was 'a clear violation of the First Amendment.'

They feel that they don't have to obey the wishes of the American people or their elected officials. All the conspirators need to go to prison and the FBI needs to be gutted and rerpaired.

The FBI is not responsible. The FBI is a government office made up of individual people that make decisions. These individuals hide under the cover of FBI and get away with it. We need leadership that is willing to get down in the mud and wrestle with the swamp creatures of Washington. Do we have it?

The FBI is an organized crime outfit, NOT "law enforcement". Time to eliminate the FBI.

Re #2, "repaired" is a pipe dream. There will NEVER be a "good version" of the FBI, if there ever was a good version. Too much power, and too much political influence to make this sort of a "law enforcement" agency on a federal level workable.

The FBI doesn't have to answer to anybody because everything they do or say is "classified" and "top secret". Also, their hands are clean if they direct private businesses to do various things, just as the CIA was innocent of wrong doing when they worked with the mob to have JFK killed.

Individuals in the agency made these decisions and followed their orders. Such acts call for prison and/or the gallows for all concerned, as well as the people outside the agency directing them to do this. And the elimination of the agency from the fedguv. Along with several other unconstitutional departments.

The FBI is like a car that starts to 'nickle and dime' you to the breaking point. You can fix this and that but it's a never ending stream of problems. Eventually, some how, some way, you have to replace it, maybe ! In this case, elimination and replacement is warranted. It's not fixable ! The question then becomes, do we really want a federal level 'police force' ? If the answer is 'no', fine, you're finished. If the answer is yes, them make sure that the replacement is extremely limited in what it can do. Keep it small, restricted and have COMPLETE oversight with HEAVY penalties for 'errors'. In other words, keep it on a tight leash ! The same approach could apply to any number of federal agencies that have been created over the years and now have maybe, just maybe outlived the need for them !

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was spotted volunteering at Arlington National Cemetery Saturday, honoring the nation’s veterans. Thomas was laying wreaths at the cemetery alongside Wreaths Across America, a nonprofit organization that organizes a wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington each year. He was seen in a photo with D.C.-based journalist Emily Miller, which she later shared on Twitter. (Tweet) Miller added that Thomas was also spending time supporting Gold Star families at Arlington. This is not the first time Thomas has been spotted honoring America’s veterans at Arlington National Cemetery, as he was seen in a photograph helping clean up the cemetery in 2013.

Lionel Messi went to the crowd. He waved to the supporters in blue and white, smiling like a child before the Argentine staff and his teammates came over to hug him, tears in their eyes. It was never going to be easy. But it’s hard to imagine a more epic fashion for Messi to win his first World Cup. Gonzalo Montiel had the ultimate piece of redemption, hitting the winning penalty into the bottom left corner after giving away a penalty at the end of extra time to allow France to tie the game. Immediately, Montiel covered his eyes with his shirt, in tears.

CNN Newsroom host Jim Acosta returned to his old form on Saturday of hyperbolically warning about threats to press freedom as he compared the Twitter suspension of several journalists to the Trump White House revoking his press credentials. He also managed to compare tracking Elon Musk’s jet to reporting when senators arrive on the Senate floor or athletes who arrive at a stadium. Acosta was not pleased with Musk’s trolling of hypocritical journalists, “Mike, Elon Musk initially mocked his critics over this ban, tweeting ‘so inspiring to see this newfound love of freedom of speech by the press.’”

Decades of writing about politicians has taught me that the successful ones generally do not make big decisions on the fly. If you watch and listen, you can usually spot a deliberative process and defensible reasoning behind their positions. But now comes a major exception: the decision by the Biden administration to throw open our southern border.  Two years into this national disaster, I don’t have a clue about why the president and his team are still doing this. What started as a foolish bid to undo everything Donald Trump did has become a permanent policy that undercuts national security and defies decency. The White House has never explained itself,

San Francisco's mayor is asking municipal departments to find significant savings as the embattled city braces for a $728 million budget deficit, predicted for the next two fiscal years. With some of the lowest office occupancy rates in the country, thanks to the tech companies that make the city's lifeblood retreating to remote work, San Francisco has seen residents move to the suburbs - pushed also by rising crime.  The city's income from property taxes and office rates has plummeted, causing sleepless nights in City Hall.

Mary Ferrell’s life changed forever on the day that John F. Kennedy died. The 41-year-old mother of four, who was working as a secretary for a Dallas law firm, was standing a few blocks from Dealey Plaza where the 35th president was shot dead on November 22, 1963. Listening to the radio moments after the assassination, Ferrell heard a description of the suspect, who was first characterized as a white male in his 30s and more than six feet tall, wearing a white shirt and khakis. A short time later, she was surprised when a 24-year-old wearing a brown shirt and brown trousers was arrested.

Taibbi released the sixth installment of the Twitter Files document dump, which he dubbed “TWITTER, THE FBI SUBSIDIARY.” (Tweet) "The #TwitterFiles show something new: agencies like the FBI and DHS regularly sending social media content to Twitter through multiple entry points, pre-flagged for moderation,” Taibbi wrote. For example, Taibbi revealed that former Twitter Trust and Safety chief Yoel Roth exchanged “over 150 emails” with the FBI between January 2020 to November 2022.

Last night the NY Times published a very lengthy and detailed story looking at the entire Russia war effort and how, thanks to Putin’s own arrogance, it became a nightmare for the soldiers sent there. The story opens on one brigade full of recently mobilized soldiers who’d been assured they would never be sent to fight on the front lines. Naturally, that was a lie. Fumbling blindly through cratered farms, the troops from Russia’s 155th Naval Infantry Brigade had no maps, medical kits or
