Last week Brian and Ed Krassenstein, the two twins and Twitter trolls who frequently responded to President Donald J. Trump’s tweets with vitriolic calls for his impeachment and resignation, were permanently suspended from the platform after Twitter announced that they bought fake followers and engagement. Now they revealed that their years of anti-Trump hysteria barely resulted in any profit at all.
In a desperate sounding Facebook post, Ed Krassenstein rebuffed the idea that he is a “grifter” who stokes anti-Trump hysteria in an attempt to make money by revealing that the brothers’ website, Hill Reporter, only made $4,000 in its entire existence.
“People called us grifters. People said we were paid to tweet. None of this is true,” wrote Krassenstein in a Facebook post. “In the three years that we used Twitter in order to tweet about politics and our current president, we indirectly generated no more than $4000 in profits, all from our editing and writing for Hill Reporter and a few stories on The Independent.”
This is ironic, considering the Krassensteins previously led Big League Politics reporter Peter D’Abrosca to believe that they made large sums of money and donated it to leftist organizations as part of their political activism.
“Hill Reporter makes money,” Krassenstein said. “We’ve just reinvested or donated every dollar thus far.”
That seems like a noble endeavor, but Krassenstein refused to confirm which “charities” have been the beneficiaries of the website’s altruism. He said he’d have to contact Kosur before releasing the information. The conversation ended mid-morning on Monday, and Krassenstein has still not returned with a response.
“I finance Hill Reporter,” Krassenstein said. “Along with James Kosur and Brian Krassenstein. Right now we don’t get a paycheck for anything we do on Twitter or Hill Reporter.”
Assuming both the statement provided to Big League Politics and the Facebook post are both true, it would seem the Krassensteins certainly have not made very much money to reinvest into their now-failing website or donate to worthy causes.
If nothing else, this may go to show that merely hating President Trump is not a viable business model, and it may also serve as evidence for Twitter’s claim. Considering the brothers, combined, had nearly 2 million Twitter followers, one might assume they would be able to leverage that following for a great deal of traffic on their website that would surely generate more than $4,000 in profits.
Unless, of course, Twitter is telling the truth, and the brothers’ engagement was propped up by phony likes, retweets, and followers.
Reuters Calls Louisville Riots Where Cops Were Shot by Black Lives Matter Terrorists ‘Mostly Peaceful’
After cops were shot in Louisville during widespread Black Lives Matter rioting on Wednesday night, Reuters had the audacity to claim that the demonstrations were “mostly peaceful.”
Demonstrations in Louisville wore on past nightfall in defiance of a 9 p.m. curfew and remained mostly peaceful until several gunshots rang out in the midst of a skirmish between protesters and heavily armed police https://t.co/lvEd2XalpJ pic.twitter.com/L8GrPNrwCg

In the Reuters article linked in the tweet, the shooting of the police officers was buried in the article. Instead, editors focused on the race of the cops who returned fire to Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend after he shot at them while they were carrying out a lawful warrant at his home.
“Two white policemen who fired into the apartment of Breonna Taylor, a Black medical worker, will not be prosecuted for her death because their use of force was justified, and a third was charged with endangering her neighbors, Kentucky’s attorney general said on Wednesday,” they wrote.
Reuters buried the lead, opting to demonize the “heavily armed police” who sent the “crowd scurrying for cover,” even though it was the Black Lives Matter/ANTIFA terrorists who shot the law enforcement officers.
Big League Politics reported on the decision by Kentucky officials to charge one of the three officers involved in the shooting death of Taylor:
On September 23, 2020, Jefferson County Judge Annie O’Connell announced that fired detective Brett Hankinson will be indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment for his actions on the night of Breonna Taylor’s death.
Hankison had previously admitted to shooting blindly. Some of those shots were fired into neighboring apartments not into Breonna Taylor’s where her boyfriend had opened fire onto police.
Myles Cosgrove and Jonathan Mattingly, the other two officers involved in a serving a search warrant on the night that Taylor was killed, did not receive any charges.
The city of Louisville was placed under a state of emergency on September 22, when city officials shutdown a significant portion of the city perimeter to traffic. The majority of administrative building and other businesses were boarded up prior to the decision. Louisville has been rocked by riots related to Taylor’s death in March. These riots have been occurring for over 100 days and have resulted in a number of deaths and heated confrontations with law enforcement.
Starting on the night of September 23, there will be a 72-hour curfew in Louisville. The curfew will not apply to people partaking in essential travel, which includes work-related purposes or medical attention. Kentucky National Guard members will be deployed to the city for the purpose of maintaining public order…
Conservatives and nationalists should make it a point to promote healthy debate, while establishing a baseline of public security, to ensure that the country does not spiral further out of control in such times of instability.
