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.

CHILLING: Former FBI Official and MSNBC Host Float Creating False Flags to Entrap White ‘Extremists’
Fake news propagandists and deep statists are an existential threat to America.
MSNBC host Katy Tur recently interviewed former FBI Assistant Director for Counterintelligence Frank Figliuzzi in a segment in which the two seemingly endorsed creating false flag scenarios to radicalize white “extremists” and entrap them in false flag operations.
“When you’re looking at ISIS or you’re looking at radical Islamic terrorism, I’ve covered a number of stories where the FBI would track young kids, or young men, and they would talk to them online, and say ‘you know, here’s how you build a bomb,” or “here’s where you get your bomb-making materials,” and they track that person as that person radicalized and then arrested them before they could do anything bad,” Tur explained.
“Why is the same not being done for white extremists or is the same being done and we just don’t know about it?” She asked Figliuzzi.
“No, it’s time, it’s time to seriously ask that question and to wrestle with it because politics does enter in, and as you’ve said, as soon as you mention even the need for a domestic terrorism statute, right, that addresses this, you’ll hear people start screaming, ‘This is the thought police. You’re trying to suppress thought.’ My answer to that is: This is not about thought. This is about verbalizing an intention to commit violence. That’s what we’re talking about,” he responded.
Figliuzzi called for a massive Draconian crackdown on digital free speech led by law enforcement and noted that President Trump and his supporters should be the focus of these efforts.
“It’s time to hit it head on and do it in partnership between law enforcement and providers… And if we don’t get out in front of it, it will just keep happening because the President represents a bully pulpit where there is fresh daily content of radicalization. The same goes for a state-subsidized news network that refuses to denounce this kind of thing. Radical Islamists would give their right arm to have that kind of fresh daily content,” he added.
A clip from their interview can be seen here:

The FBI stings mentioned by Tur, which have largely targeted mentally ill individuals and set them up as terrorists to justify the disgraced agency’s massive budgets, have been roundly denounced for their immoral and abusive nature:
The FBI and major media outlets yesterday trumpeted the agency’s latest counterterrorism triumph: the arrest of three Brooklyn men, ages 19 to 30, on charges of conspiring to travel to Syria to fight for ISIS (photo of joint FBI/NYPD press conference, above). As my colleague Murtaza Hussain ably documents, “it appears that none of the three men was in any condition to travel or support the Islamic State, without help from the FBI informant.” One of the frightening terrorist villains told the FBI informant that, beyond having no money, he had encountered a significant problem in following through on the FBI’s plot: his mom had taken away his passport. Noting the bizarre and unhinged ranting of one of the suspects, Hussain noted on Twitter that this case “sounds like another victory for the FBI over the mentally ill.”
In this regard, this latest arrest appears to be quite similar to the overwhelming majority of terrorism arrests the FBI has proudly touted over the last decade…
For reasons I and many others have repeatedly argued, these cases are unjust in the extreme: a form of pre-emptory prosecution where vulnerable individuals are targeted and manipulated not for any criminal acts they have committed but rather for the bad political views they have expressed. They end up sending young people to prison for decades for “crimes” which even their sentencing judges acknowledge they never would have seriously considered, let alone committed, in the absence of FBI trickery.
The FBI recently announced that white Americans are an ISIS-level terror threat, so expect false flags and other deep state ploys aimed at them to emerge rapidly in the months to come.
