ANNOUNCEMENT! I have officially joined the land of Substack. It was probably inevitable. But I'm very excited about the opportunities the platform affords. And most of all, looking forward to making insufferable people's heads explode mtracey.substack.com/p/offic…

"This isn't new or shocking" is not an actual criticism of anything, it's just meaningless pique
There are some mildly interesting details in here but presenting it as some new and shocking and secret finding is either ignorant or disingenuous. There have been whole news cycles about Twitter shadowbans. I know because I’ve written about them multiple times over the years.

"This is presented in a way that I find annoying" is an equally meaningless, substance-free criticism
Replying to @mtracey
Wrong. It's presented as some sort of revelatory information that was being kept from the public when that is the exact opposite of what happened. It is dishonest. Pretending it's some big deal while slow rolling without releasing all information is not transparent or helpful.

How do you go from just being a regular arms dealer to a “notorious” one.

The bottom line on western sanctions: the Russian Ruble (black) is stronger than ever, while Ukraine (blue) had to devalue and will weaken more. Our sanctions carved out Russian energy, giving Putin a huge energy windfall, and the G7 oil price cap at $60 does little to stop that.

Any media twerp who tries to claim it's not newsworthy or significant that Twitter has now been confirmed to have used secret "Blacklists" -- literally that exact term -- just 100% proves they're evaluating this stuff based solely on their own petty little inter-media resentments

So individual users were being secretly designated as purveyors of "misinformation" -- and therefore causers of 'harm" -- based on secret criteria made up by basket cases like Yoel Roth, with no recourse. Definitely a rational system: nothing at all censorial about this
Replying to @bariweiss
24. Six days later, in a direct message with an employee on the Health, Misinformation, Privacy, and Identity research team, Roth requested more research to support expanding “non-removal policy interventions like disabling engagements and deamplification/visibility filtering.”

Ah, so it turns out Twitter never did “Shadow Banning" -- they merely did “Visibility Filtering." Makes perfect sense

German law enforcement supposedly had to move in on some ridiculous QAnon "coup" plot because "after Jan 6, we cannot take any chances." How embarrassing -- have some dignity

No apparent criticism of the substantive provisions of the bill, like turning Taiwan into another Ukraine-style US military outpost, or overturning Pentagon contracting procedures at the behest of Defense Contractors. Just a relativistic complaint about the top-line dollar figure
The pentagon bill now totals $857B, $55B more than the President requested. It’s more than we spend on transportation, veterans, education, justice, int'l affairs, the environment, housing, science, space, job training, and employment COMBINED. I will be voting NO.

One of the big Republican accomplishments in the NDAA was preventing the elimination of B83-1 nuclear gravity bombs, which are up to 100 times more destructive than the bomb dropped on Hiroshima

Fun fact, more Republicans than Democrats just voted for the ungodly behemoth NDAA bill produced by the Democrat-controlled House and about to be signed by the Democratic president

Today I applaud Matt Gaetz for at least being honest that he voted for this ungodly behemoth of a bill because he managed to get a few hundred million dollars in defense contractor goodies for his district
Today I applaud the final passage of the FY2023 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) in the House of Representatives, which makes America stronger and further solidifies Northwest Florida’s critical role in our country’s national security. gaetz.house.gov/media/press-…

I estimate that Biden’s FY2023 Pentagon budget will transfer ~$452 billion to private companies, based on my analysis of US military spending from FY2012-21: stephensemler.substack.com/p…

Another bonanza for the defense contractors is that the NDAA vastly expands "multiyear" contracting authority. Lockheed Martin executive said today that they already have a sprawling new "multiyear" contract in the works for "multiple key munitions" once the bill is signed
