* We'll never send Patriot defense missiles, as Zelensky demands ---> We're sending Patriots. * We'll never send Abrams tanks, as Zelensky demands ---> We're sending tanks. * We'll never send fighter jets, as Zelensky demands. How soon until Ukraine has the F-15s?

On our Thursday @SystemUpdate_  show, we reviewed all these cases of powerful people leaking or losing classified info. Leon Panetta gave the most sensitive secrets to the Zero Dark Thirty director to make hagiography about Obama. Patreaus did even worse:

The last thread in Portuguese was about an exclusive report we presented on last night's @SystemUpdate_ . It concerns the growing and - for a modern democracy - unprecedented censorship system now implemented in Brazil. We obtained a chilling secret order

If Joe Biden were an Army Private or State Dept. bureaucrat who serially sprinkled classified docs all over town, he'd be imprison like so many others. If Panetta or Petraeus weren't the CIA Directors, they'd be imprisoned for life. That's how secrecy powers in DC are abused.

To put this in full context: 1) all journalism is based on what sources provid; except if you have full access to govt/corp files, this is always the case; 2) what Taibbi et al reported was highly newsworthy on its own; 3) Fang today said he had full access and no limits.

How come this never applies to AOC's critics?

Listing all of Adam Schiff's major lies would require a book. But there's no disputing one fact: before the 2020 election, he abused his authority as Chair of House Intel to endorse a knowing lie: the Biden laptop was "Russian disinformation." That alone justified his removal.

The petulant whining Schiff has been doing since being booted off the House Intelligence Committee is as embarrassing as it is hilarious. He really believes we can't stay safe without his serial lying and leaking. Plus: @matthewstoller  on the DOJ's latest lawsuit against Google.

BREAKING: The censorship regime in Brazil is growing rapidly, virtually daily now. We just obtained a censorship order that is genuinely shocking, directing multiple social media platforms to *immediately* remove numerous prominent politicians and commentators.

US funding for war in Ukraine in 9 months: Mar: $ 13.6 billion May: $ 40b Nov: $ 37.7b: Biden's new request That $ 91.3 billion is 33% more than Russia's *total military spending for the year* It's *double* the US's average annual expenditure for its own war in Afghanistan

The same worthless media liberals who never break stories, who never do any reporting, who just sit around mimicking each other every day - speaking only to and for one another in servitude to Dems - all write the same articles because they're all hive-minded empty herd animals.

I've never seen an orgy of hypocrisy quite as brazen as how the exact same media corporations and journalists who spent years demanding more Big Tech censorship turned *overnight* into free speech champions: because now it's their friends being silenced rather than their enemies.

The sleazy, pro-censorship pack of liberal employees of media corporations united last night to attack @mtaibbi  -- as they do to any journalist who breaks a real story about real power centers -- and, because they were so desperate to discredit it, showed what they are. Watch:

Yoel Roth, meeting with FBI weekly, and his little censorship minions absolutely degraded Twitter into little more than a full-on Democratic Party activist machine, all while lying to the public about its function. This was a massive public fraud and 2020 election interference:

Is it at all strange that a brand new and opaque voting system was implemented in the name of COVID; people are trained to think it's normal to take not days but weeks to count votes; and candidates are required to concede when the media says so, not when the votes are counted?

LIVE, in 15 minutes: Our exclusive report on a major escalation of Brazil's censorship regime: a single Supreme Court judge has ordered multiple Americans social media platforms to immediately ban politicians and analysts or face massive fines:
