FLASHBACK: Jeff Bezos Supported Gawker in Peter Thiel’s Media Lawsuit

Published

on

Jeff Bezos was congratulated by establishment political figures on the left and right for exposing what some have called an attempt to blackmail him by the National Enquirer.

Bezos had been threatening a lawsuit against the Enquirer for publishing his embarrassing text messages to his mistress. If Bezos’ transcripts of emails with the Enquirer’s owners are to be believed, it seems as if they threatened to release even more of Bezos’ lewd text messages if he didn’t cease and desist with his lawsuit.

Bezos, under the impression that he was being blackmailed, released the emails. Now it remains to be seen if more personal messages and photos associated with the billionaire oligarch will be released.

If not, the Amazon billionaire will have largely succeeded in what many have called an effort by a wealthy and influential individual to shut down embarrassing press coverage. Bezos claimed in his expose of the emails that pictures of his genitalia are unnewsworthy and thus worthy of legal sanctions should they be published.

However, at one point Bezos was far less amenable to the idea that wealthy individuals should be able to shut down embarrassing news coverage.

The oligarch went on the record in 2016 in defense of the now-defunct media platform Gawker, which was at the time being sued by Silicon Valley billionaire Peter Thiel and Hulk Hogan. Gawker had outed Thiel as a gay man and exposed a sex tape of the former WWE superstar.

At the time, Bezos sided with Gawker, stating that “the best defense against speech that you don’t like about yourself as a public figure is to develop a thick skin.

The lawsuit against Gawker was ultimately successful, sending the company out of business.

Bezos spoke in the now completely hypocritical remarks at a tech conference in California:

As a public figure, the best defense you have against… speech that you don’t like, is to have a thick skin.

Interestingly, it seems that Bezos’ perspective on supposed media defamation has shifted completely when it targets himself, and more broadly, the progressive left.

Michigan Board of Canvassers Votes 3-0 to Certify Election Results Despite Countless Affidavits Detailing Massive Fraud

This is an outrage.

The Michigan board of canvassers decided by a 3-0 vote on Monday to certify the state’s election results, even as Democrats admit that the Detroit results are incongruent under state law.

The Democrats made the case during the hearing that abnormalities must be accepted in the city of Detroit, because to hold the city accountable would be racist and hurt democracy.

The entire embarrassing façade of a hearing, which is still underway as they certified the vote before public comment could be concluded, can be seen here:

Republican board member Aaron Van Langevelde was the Benedict Arnold who joined the Democrats to certify a dubious sham of an election, effectively pissing in the faces of the hundreds of whistleblowers who signed sworn affidavits detailing grotesque fraud in Detroit.

“We have a clear legal duty to certify the results of the election, as shown by the returns that were given to us,” Van Langevelde said. “We cannot and should not go beyond that. As John Adams once said, ‘We are a government of laws, not men.'”

“This board needs to adhere to that principle and do its part to uphold the rule of law here today. This board must uphold the law and comply with our legal duty to certify this election,” he added.

The other Republican on the board, Norm Shinkle, was too craven to take a principled stand against voter fraud, so he abstained like a coward.

“I do not plan on voting for certification. I believe Wayne County’s certification needs to be looked at,” Shinkle said prior to his weak capitulation.

Big League Politics has reported on the rigging that took place at Detroit’s absentee voter counting board on election night, with tens of thousands of ballots arriving at 3:30am with no chain of custody, no accountability, and no way of knowing where the ballots had been for several hours:

One day after the election, the results are still pending and will likely depend on the rust belt. President Donald Trump holds a strong lead in the state of Michigan, but the city of Detroit and their mail-in and absentee ballots have yet to be officially tallied.

In news that will likely cast further doubt on the election results, tens of thousands of absentee ballots arrived in large U.S. Postal Service boxes at the TCF Center in Detroit, Mich. on Wednesday morning at 3:30 am. The TCF Center, formerly Cobo Hall, is where the absentee ballots are counted for Wayne County, which is the home of Detroit.

Former Michigan state senator Patrick Colbeck wrote that the total number of ballots dumped on the counting board totaled 38,000…

Before the ballots showed up mysteriously at 3:30 am, no ballots had arrived at the TCF Center for over six hours, and many poll workers in the facility sat around with no work to do while getting paid hundreds of dollars by the state of Michigan.

According to Michigan election law, all of these mail-in and absentee ballots had to be submitted before 8pm on Tuesday night in order to be lawfully accepted and counted for the election. This means the city of Detroit potentially sat on these ballots for hours. The white van that arrived had the name of Detroit city clerk Janice Winfrey emblazoned upon it as well as a logo and a phone number. Last month, Winfrey set the stage to drag out the process in an interview with ABC 7 News.

“We’re back in control, and we know that we will have nearly 10,000 poll workers that will be working with us to process ballots on election day, or election week is what we’re calling it now, because we know we’re going to be slow,” she said, adding that she was not going to let “outside influencers” get in the way of her election day schemes.

The rape of America is at hand, and it is the Republican elites who should bear the most substantial burden when the time comes for retribution.
